Glitter on the pageThere is glitter on my fingertips,
As they stroke across the page,
Its all black and red to you,
But I see it glimmer and form.
She didn't have to make that joke,
As it cut into my trusting heart,
Black, yes, everything is black,
This is why I stay silent.
That was a secret she laughed about.
And you laughed too,
"I'm used to it."
He won't leave my dreams,
And I can never sleep.
Lets wash this blood red marker,
away in the sink.
This is why I am insomniac.
The bullet noise forever imprinted in my mind.
You just smile,
"Well, he's in a better place now."
She never had to use my life against me,
Those low blows don't bring her above me.
Shade and shade until the right hue is made.
This is why I stay in my room,
Hide away in a book,
I hate being a disappointment to her.
But you, "She's not so bad."
It doesn't ever stop calling to me,
That little tiny object,
But self-destruction has torn us apart.
This is why you are no longer apart of me.
Lets erase this dark line away.

Her screams go unnoticed
Until she falls eerily silent.
"Shhh, it's only me."
Can anyone hear?
Does anyone know?
Arms pinned above her head,
She freezes in fear.
Please let it be quick this time.
Please let this end.
Close your eyes, child
And leave your body behind.
Tapped in these moments

The Blame Game. The Blame GameThe Blame Game.2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
How about we play a game.
So we will know who is to blame.
We'll spin the dice and take a turn.
And hurt each other until it burns.
I can't believe what you have done.
Filled us with lies of Kingdom come.
You preached of a God oh so great.
Yet now it seems we are of different fates
There will be no hypocrites beyond His door.
Nor salvation for the wicked to their core.
No place for the deceitful with silver tongues
or those who have been lost since they were young.
For you who cant stand to see your mother.
Have only become a dreadful bother.
Spewing your hate from here to there.
You will one day face a life so bare.
You speak of a Kingdom and Father's love,
Yet when faced a problem; were the first to shove.
A coward hiding behind twisted lies.
Then questioned why we broke all ties.
Don't get me started on your transgressions.
Your problems you caused with pure aggression.
You fought, and screamed, and manipulated.
Your husbands left beaten and berated

The Story of UsIt's just beneath the skinThe Story of Us3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Her heart so paper thin
It fell and broke again
It's all because of him
Left her for what she was
A broken shattered soul
She can't believe she can
Repair her heart to whole
She's tried so many things
To ease the pain inside
But she still feels its sting
In each tear she's cried
But then you came along
You took this broken girl
Made her believe she's strong
You have become her world
Look deep into her eyes
Let all the pain subside
Return the tears she's cried
Don't ever leave her side
She's fallen hard for you
Please don't betray her trust
You may have heard this too
This is the story of us...

To match a gentle smile-
Beloved, never let that fade,
No matter how life
Attempts to bring you
To your knees.
I feel like someone
Has been ripping
My heart out slowly,
Day by day-
Seeing that grin
Is the only thing
That can soothe me.
Dearest, heed me-
I know not what
Think not of me
When deciding your future-
As long as you keep smiling
In those pictures,
Even if you're
In someone else's arms,
I will be content -
If not happy-
In the knowledge that
You are fulfilled.

LoserThere was a girlLoser7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
who was always alone.
No one knew her name.
No one really cared.
She'd sit in the shadows,
Cry for herself,
cry, hoping to get pity,
cry, because Mom and Dad were long gone,
cry, because she needed the consolation.
Wherever she went,
her face was shrouded
She couldn't be loved
because she was a loser
to everyone around her.
No one saw the
beauty that was buried
deep in her.
She was once a loser to them
and always would be a loser to them.
She was once their target
and always would be their target.
Things were not easy
being a loser and all.
She had no allies to
turn to in her
time of need.
So many people know
We've all been losers.
Glossi.Gloss2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
This is a poem
for lip gloss
and the pre-teen
who wears it
and the old woman
This is for
sparkle and stick.
For bodies like
For all the boys and girls
who would breath in
when the wick turned black.
Before their hair
turned grey with ash,
and their eyes fogged over
from the naked heat.
Before young love dies
and is buried in a shoebox,
with a little pile of rocks
to mark where it was.
This is for
the scared little boy
who spent all his time
While pretty girls
lay on autumn hills,
and even the crickets play
in major key.
With their noses
face down in the soil.
With their discarded jackets
on the grass, limp-
and making angels.

Then I would be like you,
Would I not?

Why do you befriend him?

A happy masquerade
You think of how strong you are
And paste it on your face
You try not to act like
Blood's sticking to the underside of your shirt
And that you weren't just cursing yourself
Becuause she got there first
And you act like its all fine, it's all good
That you aren't being tortured
As much as you should
That you aren't devestatingly lonely
And your trashed heart isn't broken
You smear this act
This pointless coat of paint across your skin
Like everything is fine

But no, I know the meaning of

We weren't about sex or anything,
We only wanted the others happiness.
I remember our first, and our last,
But will it remain the last? Last
Until you come crawling back.

Your hands on my skin, addicted.
Your lips at my neck, perfection.

knowing you were my closest friend.
Remember the night of how we met?
The first time seeing you, bringing you a cigarette.
I felt in that moment we connected then,
Ranting on about past friendships, relationships even that came to an end.
So angry we seemed to be back then,
But somehow that made us closer as friends.
Remember the times we would drink together,
How I will always cherish those moments forever.
But one memory in particular still always makes me question,
That one night, if what you asked was more of a need than a suggestion.
Remembering the time, when we fell asleep together,
That memory will haunt me forever and ever.
That night I didn't want to push you away,
If I could go back to that moment, I would've stayed.
But if I gave in that night you had asked,
I would fear that our friendship wouldn't last.
I tried to be careful, not to hurt you then,
But maybe thats why afterwards you told me we were no more than friends.

And started to think
Now what should I write about?
I'm sick of it
Too boring to read
I'm done with it
I lie on the floor and start to sing
Something so sad and something so sweet
No need to write it down
But nothing about
Melody is quite simple
As it comes from the heart
You might think I'm tearful
But no, I am not
Too many reasons why I'm here
Too many questions unrelieved
So many people should just leave
Away, get vanished, disappear
I'm still holding pencil in my hand
Not writing, not trying to understand
But I'm singing to feel something new
Something weird, something so good
I'm not a writer and I don't know how to write
though all my life is one big poem, one big fight
But I'm still singing
This melody in me
And it sounds so perfectly
Forgive me please
Forgive me for this
But I'm not a writer
Just one big dreamer...

There's nothing you can hide in your beautiful eyes,
As golden and magical as the morning sunrise.
They're a kaleidoscope of emotion.
Whispers of unwritten stories in each little fleck of green,
Murmuring tales of broken hearts, visits to the between.
The depth of your pain, your albatross
Spins in those eyes, plunging down, down, fathomless;
Yet, they sparkle at a distance, boundless, fearless.
I drown in those eyes, listening eagerly to the stories.
I am lost in your ageless soul...

We all have a mask
Something we can hide behind
Something we can use to fight

Keeps us okay in the beginning
Keep our secrets
Hold our treasures in locked vaults
Keep our hearts from breaking
Keep the tears from showing
