Lovers and FriendsWere talking like we do every dayLovers and Friends5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Im looking in your eyes and I only see beauty
Your words, my melody.
And then you ask:
What if you like a girl and shes so wonderful
And you want to be with her every second of the day
But youre so scared if you got together you would loose everything
Should you still go for it?
My heart has a fit, youre looking deep into my eyes.
You make my head swirl and I know youre talking about me
I stop my self from shaking
And reply it couldnt go wrong
Youre face lights up and you hold my tight
I feel you smile, though I cant see you
You thank me and go
You leave me so confused
Next day you ring me and you start my stomach again
You shout down the phone
Were going out, thanks for the advise
Ill never be the lover; Always the friend.
Im in Love with You.My eyes often fall to your lipsIm in Love with You.5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
When youre in deep sleep
I rarely pull away from your touch
No matter how uncomfortable
I'd never give you the cheek
If you lent in to kiss me
I wouldnt give up on you
Even if I could
You make me laugh
You make me cry.
You make me bleed
Because Im in love with you
I dont blind myself
Sure I think of us together
But i'm ready to believe it might just not be
Even if it hurts so.
When I look at the stars I imagine you at my side
When I admit my secrets in my head it's you Im telling
When I lay in my bed and darkness around me
Im wishing Im holding hands with you.
You make me laugh
You make me cry.
You make me bleed
Because Im in love with you

Run a thousand miles, if thats what you want.
Just get out of here
Because Im sick of you moaning.
The way you look in the mirror you see only yourself when the room is crowded.
When you making comment at people who are making something of their life
All these things
So you better take the jump before I bloody push you
Stand up and get a grip because youre like a crying little baby
Maybe you should be grateful for all you have and stop questioning what you dont
Dont grumble that life isnt worth living when youve got no reason to kill yourself
Rainbow.Paint slipping through my fingers; leaving stainsRainbow.5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The dye a deep shade of red and I remember Im living.
I put my hand on the wall; the handprint looks like someones reaching out for me
Then I realize Im all alone in this pale room
I roll on a strip of blue as I see it drips of the wall
It brings to mind why I cry every night.
And as I begin to spread the cerulean
I begin to get lost in the big ocean
I line the walls with orange and yellow;
The colours burning inside of me
I understand that it burns me to ashes
And the azure wont douse it
I dip my fingers in the green and flick my hands
Now im reminded of your emerald eyes
That always looked into mine
That never looked down
I spread a coat of purple and pink
It sparks the love in my heart for you
And the passion I tried so hard to bury so deep down
I think of all the fun times we had.
I look at the rainbow I manifested
And I drown in emotion.
And when I turn around to the white wall
Its brought back that yo
I see Though The MaskI see right through youI see Though The Mask5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I see the truth behind the mask
You look away and dont speak to me
But just so you know you cant hide
Your nervous sweat washes away the makes up
If I look at you I see the glitter gone from your eyes
Your dreams are shattered and forever lost
Please dont give up hope yet
I see the pain, all youve gone through
Fake smiles dont elude me, I know them too well
the laugh isnt as convincing as you might think
and all I ask is grow a back bone and deal with it.
Remove that mask and always remember
That true beauty comes within
Because right now to me
You look so ugly.
Mother.I look through a frosted window with a frown.Mother.5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I pity the housewife hit by her husband.
Protecting her children the best she can
And puts her self in the crossfire.
The amount of makeup to cover up her bruises
Are to lead her children to think its all okay
To show them how strong she is
And that daddy still loves them
ShadowsBetrayal. Anger. Sadness. Pain.Shadows5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
These feelings run rampant,
Threaten to overwhelm your soul.
What happened to all we once knew?
Everything died everyone changed
Nothing is as it once was.
You long for the past,
For the times of joy,
Those times are long gone.
Your friendships are shattered;
The shards pierce your heart.
You attempt to smile,
But all your lip can do
Is quiver in reply.
Slowly, new bonds are forged.
You allow yourself to trust once more.
But is it enough?
What of before?
What of the others?
What of your past?
Trapped Inside MeWhen I walked away I never realised what I was letting go of,Trapped Inside Me5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My heart collapsed, my lungs stopped working and my veins blocked up.
I dreamed of the day we said goodbye over and over again,
I recreated that night and I would change every last word I said.
At the time the pressure was thundering like a storm over me,
You were a burden, a weight on my shoulders and now you're a distant memory.
There hasn't been a day that has passed without me pondering over thoughts of you,
If I was granted one wish it would be to have you, even for a moment, to empty out my heart.
I constantly reminisce on the love we once shared,
When time was everlasting and innocence ran through me radiating my skin.
You shaped this woman, my heart and my soul will always belong to you,
And I will continue to dedicate every last piece of my success to you.
Even though time has passed and you have found somebody new,
After all of these years my heart still longs for you.
IrisCan you feel it?Iris5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Can you hear it?
That tiny spark,
That gentle urge,
A burning in your breast,
A searing in your very soul.
The desire to create,
The need to express.
Your wish to be unique.
Your fervent hope; originality.
Some hesitate in their quest,
Some fear rejection or confusion.
You must be true to your heart,
You need only to peer within
All along, the ability was yours.
All along, you were strong.
Now the path is clear.
Now you live.
ChangeThe tears flow effortlessly as your world crumbles.Change5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Everything you once knew and once loved
You claw at your skin, tear out your hair,
Chew your lip to quell its quivering.
Everything is gone.
Angry, you viciously wipe your eyes.
You will not be tamed by this.
You leave all behind.
Slowly, shakily, you stand back up.
You stumble; fall once more,
And a hand reaches out.
Timidly, you raise your eyes.
A kind face greets you.
It is so pure.
The face is full of life,
It is full of hope,
Full of love.
You will survive;
RaindropsSorrow sends you to another;Raindrops6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Emotions lead to words.
Your pain is shared,
Your frustration admitted.
Why is trust so delicate?
It is such a hard thing to gain,
Yet it can be destroyed in an instant.
A sad smile is given to you.
A slight shrug, and an offering.
Friendship. A confident.
These are special gifts.
The pain is not gone,
But it has subsided.
Your heart begins to heal.
The tears of pain slowly transform.
They become tears of joy.
Rather than blood shed,
They are now as pure rain.
How I FeelYou See This Face. The One With The Faint Smile And Warm Eyes.How I Feel6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I'm Sorry To Say That It's A Mask Full Of Lies.
That Sensible, Down-To-Earth Girl.
And This Is Where The Truth Will Unfurl.
When Someone Asks Has One Caught Your Eye
I Reply No, But I do Have That One Special Guy.
There's A World Around Me, Unlike Any You've Known
A World In Which I'm All Alone.
I Can Sense Presences That Shouldn't Be There.
I Have A Sense Of Sickness You Couldn't Compare.
I Can Feel Slimy Hands Touch My Body - But Nooones Here
I Don't Go To School, I've Jepordized My Career.
I Feel Ugly And Unwanted.
My Soul Wonders Alone And Haunted.
And Noone Knows How Everyday I Try My Hardest Not To Self Harm
How Hard It Is Not To Cut My Own Arm
The Thoughts That Go Through My Head Should Stay
I Hold It In But My Mind Does Betray
Im So Scared... Scared Of Myself.
I Ignore It And Hope To God It Will Fix Itself
I'm Afraid That One Day My Mum Will Come Home
That I'll Be Hanging From The Ceiling, And As A Ghost I Will Roam
From A Niece To Her UncleYou were always so full of lifeFrom A Niece To Her Uncle6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You had kids, and a wonderful wife
You truly were an amazing guy
And I never got to say goodbye
It was all so sudden, all too quick
The thought of it just makes me sick
They rushed you in, but far too late
You left the world too soon a date
The words I never said to you
I dont know if you even knew
That you meant the world to me
And now I feel so very guilty
This poem is for you, and only you
A silent prayer between us two
So if you can hear me, wherever you may be
I love you so much, my dear uncle Barry
The Baobab and the RoseTime is so brief, so precious.The Baobab and the Rose6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Months pass like days or moments,
Gone before we know our joy.
We will move on,
Carry on with our lives.
Do not fear, though.
We are here.
The ties you have made,
Will not be shattered.
They will only grow.
The most important things,
Are invisible to the eye.
They must felt by the soul,
They must be seen by the heart.
Do not let the baobabs,
Simple from the start,
Engulf you in their power.
Allow yourself to live;
Focus on things of importance.
Then you will see;
You are a special rose.
Let me tell you a story"Is that what you think life is then?" Professor Segwick asked, leaning across the table towards Alaster. "Then perhaps if you can take a second, listen to the story of young Alexander.Let me tell you a story6 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"You see, once upon a time life seemed much more simple place to live. As is the standard with these sorts of stories, the grass was greener, the sky was bluer and the air was cleaner than they all are today. And, of course, the people were happier too. Technology had not reached its pinnacle, and was limited to industrial machines that few companies used. Cars were relatively new to town, and were a rare commodity for the townsfolk. As a result, people had much more time to mingle, and were on the whole far more sociable then they are these days. He grew up in a rich home, with a famous doctor for a father, and lived his life in luxury. The point of all this you ask? Merely to set the tone, so that you will understand the world that Alexander lived in. Because even with all these differences, I don't i
Someone SpecialA simple smile or gaze sent in my direction,Someone Special6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Warms my heart and brings me joy.
Time spent with you is precious,
Never to be wasted or taken for granted.
Your talents, skills and words
Leave me stunned and in awe.
I could listen to you sing
Until the end of time.
You are so beautiful,
I see the real you,
The one that few ever know.
You are special and lovely,
Caring and forgiving.
I am blessed to have met you,
Even more so to hear you call me
A word of power and love.
Graceful TouchGently dancing shadows cascade across the ground,Graceful Touch6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The wind, the air, whispers.
Tendrils of life thrust from the earth,
Searching, seeking, waiting.
A lone tear on a cheek,
Words needing to be expressed, unsaid.
A longing, a yearning for something near.
What is it?
What pulls at the heart, tortures the mind,
The imagination by day and soul by night.
How can one cope, when none are there to support?
When none can help relieve the pain.
When none care.
The soft coo of a dove rouses you.
A tiny beam of light splits the clouds,
Illuminates the sky, penetrates the very darkness within.
Words are shared, though none are spoken.
This one thought permeates your being.
You struggle to fathom, to comprehend.
How? It is so hard
A warmth teases your senses,
Begging to be let in.
Slowly, carefully, you open a crack.
Warmth begins to trickle though,
Rousing your soul, setting your senses ablaze.
What is this feeling, this immense power?
Tears flow in earnest now,

When I Heard You Loved Another
Of Course Maybe You Dont Know . . .
That I Love you
And Im Not one To Say
But Truth Is What I Speak
Youre the one That Invades My Mind
When Im Cold and Lonely
I Dont Want You To Hug me
Because You Tear Away Too Soon
Dont Cuddle Up To me

Sometimes I Think
That maybe You Do
Feel The same Way As Me . . .

Opened up and sun
I see you clearly
Wondering what you do
Do you remember
That first kiss
Do you remember
The anguish of that
Do you see
How it all fell apart
Do you hear the
Sorrow of my broken
Before it ended
Can you see
Will you know
I can but try
I did try and
Failed to teach
What it means
When boy meets girl
What it feels like
To take a back seat
To school and friends
Why it hurt when
Time was cut
And you blamed me
Where my heart was
It shattered the day
You told me that
You would rather do
Homework instead of
Spending time with me
Do you know
Do you see
Where it fell apart
Between you and me
If men were like shoesIf men were like shoes7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
If men were like shoes, I'd go to the store and pick out the hottest pair of stilettos. The only bad thing about stilettos though is my feet do hurt and gosh they leave blisters. I don't think I could handle such high heels for my entire existence, so back to the store I could head. This time I'd get something a bit more comfy. Out would I walk with a great set of flip-flops. I think I could wear these for the rest of my life, if only there wasn't December. See the issue with these is they end up leaving you cold, and uncovered. Boy, I am getting annoyed with all this...shopping again would this little miss be. So I think to myself, maybe I'll go for a run, I'll buy me some sneakers, that should be fun! So I lace um' up, and with a marathon I begin. I run and run until my breath I can no longer catch. Its safe to say that was fun for about an hour and a half, but going at it without end can be exhausting don't you agree ladies? I might have to give up finding a pair of shoes that fits
Smiling Ritz The other day I met a rather queer young man on my way to the clubs. He was a fine and well dressed man with pearl white spats, a black high hat, and a pair of gray overalls a top a white shirt. But I'll say that it wasn't his cloths or his somewhat pale skin that got my attention, it was his smile. Such a-such a happy smile, he looked like a happy man. He looked at me as we walked toward one another and he tipped his hat and said. "Oh, good morning to ya, Billy, and how is this fine day treating you?" I thought it was strange when he spoke. Very strange actually, but also v-v-very happy; it was strange because my name is Jared, not Billy and it was also night not morning. It wasn't even a fine day either; it had been a rather stormy day. But I paid no real mind to that because he sounded so cheerful about it all.Smiling Ritz4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Well I didn't want to seem rude to this smiling man, so I smiled back and told him it was treating me well though
