Nothing like the First LoveThere's nothing like the first love
And those early signs of bliss
Where heartache's still unheard of
And all you lust for is a kiss
When we're still so innocent and pure
Think with love, this world, we cure
But we're just so immature
Gave our hearts away without really being sure
There is nothing like the first love
No one could ever take their place
We may come across pure beauty
Only to find perfection in their face
And the thickness of their lips
Combine to form a perfect smile
Leave our hair standing on its tips
Nothing like the first love
Even if one day we grow apart
We will always keep the memories
And a special place for them inside our hearts
Cupid's RevengeWhats with me?....I just can't get rid of this frownCupid's Revenge2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And this sorrow keeps swimming in this liquor...and it just wont seem to drown
Proclaimed to be the King of this game...but I've seem to of lost my crown
Because every time I decide to give "Love" another shot..I keep getting shot down
Maybe Cupid is mad for all the hearts that I've Broken
Maybe his wrath is What I have awoken
Well It seems that his goal is to make sure that my heart becomes shattered
And make sure that all the pieces are scattered
Maybe that's why He wont let me have any girl that to this heart actually mattered
The one girl that I love is becoming estranged
And I'm sure it must be all because of Cupid's Revenge
Making our story be like Romeo and Juliet..must be his way to avenge
To give me a perfect girl..who easily takes away my breath
Just to realize..I can only have her..If we have a tragic death
Angel's CryNo power through the houseAngel's Cry2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
at night sleeping on the floor
Moved the furniture against the walls
Sofa is blocking the front door
We're all sleeping in the same room
trying to keep each other warm
We're fearing for our life
like if we're in the middle of a storm
For two weeks we lived like this
after we started living on our own
When we finally escaped our father
And mother took the burden all alone
She always stood so strong
Even though we barely moved along
Acting like nothing in the world is wrong
trying to give us some place we felt that we belonged
Then one night I walked into her room
I could smell in the air she had sprayed some of His perfume
Her tears were flowing
I could see depression was starting to consume
For us she'd been a strong mother
But she was still a wife that lost her groom
It was the first time I saw her cry
And the first time I wished that He'd just die
It was the first time I looked up to the sky
and asked god to help my mother get us by
My Angel cried
If I write you a songEveryone is talkingIf I write you a song2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
About how you want to make it big
That you want to be a Rockstar
That you've already booked a gig
You've always been so beautiful
But never content with who you are
Think you deserve to have the spotlight
And to be married to a Star
They say that you want someone
who'll sing for you in front of the whole world
Who'll dedicate you all his lyrics
Who will scream you were his girl
What if I wrote you a song?
will it change the way you look at me?
I wonder if it'd take me like long
Can I use this love to form the perfect melody?
Use the rhythm that you give my heart
A fast tempo like the way you make it beat
Turn these feeling into lyrics
That can make this song complete
I might never be a Rockstar
People will never know my name
But I promise you that no one
Can love you quite the same
I've never been good at singing
But I will scream this to the world
You will always hold the spotlight
If you decide to be my girl
Everyone is talking
That you want to be a star
Waking up to YouI woke up today..and I felt the warmth of your bodyWaking up to You3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And the breathes you exhaled where all landing on me
And the weight of your body...as you laid on my chest
I've had good mornings....but I'll confess... today was the best
All night while we slept...I held you in my arms
I was telling myself..I was protecting you from everything that harms
But it was an excuse ...I just wanted you Near
While you slept ..whisper in your ear....that you're what my heart holds most dear
And its only been a few months...and I can't picture my life without you
In such a short time..we both grew so much because of all we've been through
You gave my life purpose...and soon became more important than water
This is just a poem to tell you that I love you...my beautiful daughter
If tomorrow I don't Wake upI wonder what would happenIf tomorrow I don't Wake up2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
If I was never to wake up
Would people even care
I wonder if a commotion would erupt
Would anyone even notice
That I wasn't alive
Would my mother even mourn me
Or could she guess that I wouldn't survive
Well I'm still not dead
But I can barely call this living
I feel like a corpse
That hasn't given up on breathing
But I wonder what would happen
If I was actually to die
Would anyone be bothered
Or care enough to cry
Maybe everyone's just used to
Me living like a corpse
So no one would be bothered
Or life change the slightest off of course
But if I would never wake up
There's no way to know what happens the next day
Won't know if people really care about me
But..maybe it's better off that way
Blame it on the RainI'm looking out my windowBlame it on the Rain2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
just seeing the rain fall
Trying to hide my phone
to fight back this urge to call
And all the memories
of us playing in the rain
start to flood my brain
As the rain starts screaming out your name
As I'm looking there outside
I can see your silhouette
I know you're not there and yet
You look just like the day we met
Oh please tell me Juliet
Why can't I forget
Blame it on the rain
Blame it on my brain
Blame it on life
being full of pain
Blame it on these eyes
for always seeing you
Blame it on me
For all I've put you through
Blame it on the rain
Blame it on my name
Blame it on love
driving us insane
Baby blame me
when there's nothing left to blame
Cuz I haven't lost the flame
it still burns within the rain
And I cant keep acting like everything's okay
babe you've made it so an atheist would pray
I don't know what to believe in anymore
since the day you walked away
I just hope that you'll come back to stay
Now Juliet tell me,Why I can't forget

Missing YouSince I woke up todayMissing You2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I've been struggling to breathe.
Choking on your name
Asking you not to leave.
It happened again,
I saw you in my dream.
I'm still trying to catch my breath
Trying not to scream.
I need to wipe these tears
I need to blur your face.
Force this heart back into gear,
make it regain its normal pace.
So I'll go get my pills
And I'll bring out the liquor.
Keep on lying to myself
Saying "today I really don't miss her".
But I'm haunted.
Can't get you off my head.
I wish that I would die,
For you to be the one suffering instead.
Why did we fight that night?
How could I let you drive away?
If i knew that you'd been drinking
I should have forced you to stay
is the anniversary of your death.
I've been trying not to think of you,
But I'm crying, still short of breath.
I take out my wallet
Where I still hold your picture.
Wondering if I'll meet you soon
Thanks to this pill and liquor mixture.
But I feel nothing

Just waiting for you to miss me
Hoping you'll come back
For thing to go back to how they used to be
But It seems that up to now
I'm the only one who's missing
I've heard about it all
From moving on to that boy that you've been kissing
Now it seems like so long ago
That your eyes belonged only to me
Those days seem so far gone
More like fairy-tale than memory
Why Can't I let go
Why keep causing myself pain
Was it the way your eyes would always shine
Or the way that you'd pronounce my name
I really don't know
Why I'm sill holding on
But I need something to help me realize
That you're already gone
What I can't understand
Is that even though our story ended long ago
It was so easy to fall in love
But feels impossible to let you go
One Last KissI'm always thinking back to usOne Last Kiss2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Mostly happy showing love..but other times just loving to discuss
Yeah these words we loved to cuss...never making a big fuss
We hurt each other to make love...that's just how it was
Loving, hurting, playing games..the heartaches were a plus
A relationship that's so fucked up..but..baby that was Us
But you stayed stuck on that mode...of just wanting to hate
Complaining about the small things..from clothes to the food that we ate
So to please you..I started working so late...13 hour shift from seven to eight
And you hate that I'm home and I'm barely awake...we wont last at this rate
I just want to make you happy..but things begin to complicate
We start hiding..and lying and begin to deceive
Until the foundation of our relationship were the webs that we weave
But you've finally had enough..and decide that you'll leave
I hurt and I grieve...without you..its just pain i receive
But all I need is one more kiss...so I can start to believe
Yeah..I just want one
Just A PoetI never realized I cared so muchJust A Poet2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
about what other people thought
I always thought I wrote
because it gave me the outlet that I sought
Was I not writing to vent out
wasn't every word that I thought out
meant to fight the urge I had to shout
Wasn't that what this was all about
When did losing fans
start to inflict in me this doubt
Wasn't this pen
meant to be my voice
a crescendo of agonizing screams
heard without making a noise
No. Its more than just my voice
It was meant to live a dream
When pain molds into beauty
And starts to fix a broken self-esteem
But when people cheer your name
it starts getting to your head
I forgot to write for me
and wrote for them instead
But that wasn't me
so it all came crashing to the ground
I asked myself why I was writing
but there was no answer to be found
Losing sight of who I was
Or the reason I was crowned
started feeling insecurity
In the darkness where I was left to drown
This pen fits perfectly inside my hand
Its still linked to my heart
and has to

I'll admit I've been dreaming about her
Though I should be dreaming about you
For..you're the one that I prefer
Restored my hope in happiness
When she left me all alone
I'm still here feeling hopeful
Even though you too left me on my own
I'm feeling hopeful
But I really don't know why
Am I just tired of feeling down on myself
Every night just cry..wishing that I'd die
Or Maybe I'm hoping that you'll change your mind
Hoping you'll come back
Hoping that you''ll just appear here in my life
And restore everything I lack
But I'm still dreaming about her
When I should be dreaming about you
I'm still being haunted by the past
And babe I don't know what i should do
i don't mind hurting
If the reason for it's you
You can always shatter me
For in the end you're still my glue
love is hurtingThe beautiful days we held so close, I once said to 'hello' to you.love is hurting2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Our meeting was brief, and simple.
Caring, and kind.
We left with helpless hearts.
Neither regretting, nor forgetting.
Our meeting place, once helped me smile.
Overcoming each day.
I still wish for the past,
with crying into my hands, at last.
Letting lose the tears,
I know I shouldn't fear.
You tell me "You'll move on".
But the glass still digs into my skin, and prickles each time I see you.
Wandering like I'm not here.
I touch my lips, and hope for yours to return.
The tears keep streaming, never forgetting.
True RomanceDo you know how much it hurts...to picture you with someone elseTrue Romance2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To only have your best friend...and have to believe the stories that she tells
And just hate it when she tells me...that you've forgotten about me
That for the first time you feel....that you're actually happy.
Her words hurt like daggers.. draining all the blood from my veins.
It hurts to know you'll never say my name again. How can you pretend I never mattered.
I treated you like you were my king....I thought I was your queen.
Hearing you were never happy with us is just obscene.
And its mean...to have your friend keep posting those pictures on my screen
But what hurts most is seeing you have a smile...better than any I had ever seen
You never smiled that way with me...I've never seen you so serene
And just...seeing your eyes gleam..still the perfect blend of blue and green
Makes me fall back on old routines...thinking back on memories...
The memorys play in my head like a favorite song
Taking a Chance at Love(girl)Taking a Chance at Love2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Love only ever comes true in works of fiction.
The words try to cover relationships friction.
I don't believe in such tall fairy tales.
They are destined to epically fail.
Growing up I saw my parent's relationship fall apart
And it broke my heart..But I knew it wasn't like that from the start
Although it started beautiful like a fairy tale
It shattered. I guess Love is just that frail
My prince charming fell off his horse.
Now I am left with thoughts of remorse.
He went off to save another damsel in destress.
What will I do with this never used prom dress?
I stumbled on a girl who seems to have been dumped on her prom
She was sitting alone...holding her phone on her palm
Realized her date wasn't coming ..started feeling so dumb
I thought I'd approach her, since her boy wouldn't come
I look up and see him walking towards me.
Could it be my fairly tale is meant to be?
He askes me "would you like do dance?"
I say "yes" and take love's chance.

The beginning of the end,
And the end of the beginning.
The middle of the introduction,
And the intro to the 20-years-later.
I am endless,
In this maze of time.
I am a cycle,
Living in a straight line.
I am unique,
In this world of monochrome.
And I am boring,
In this world of constant change.
I am someone,
Where no one has a name.
I am no one,
Where everyone's the same.
I am the opposite of antonym,
And the antonym of synonym.
I am the nonsensical part of your mind.
I am the logical part of your heart.
I am the thing that doesn't exist.
But yet I am right here.
I am the thing that will never desist,
Hold this guessing game to the end.

Midnight DanceYour fingers slide in between mine,Midnight Dance2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Our hands perfectly entwined.
Your arm wraps tenderly around my waist,
As you whirl me around and we trace
imaginary patterns on the floor.
Everything about you I adore,
as my head lies gently on your shoulder,
And we dance a dance that is older
Than time itself.
Your scent engulfs my mind,
And brings with it memories so refined,
Filled with pure emotion,
To you I promise complete devotion.
My senses are drowned out,
So that there is no room for any doubt,
Past worries and fears I twirled
As I fell into another world.
Hope and love fill my heart
As we perfect this dying art.
My dreams fall into place,
Made real by the smile upon your face.
And as we dance,
Our minds filled with true romance,
I mirror your movements
As we step backwards and forwards
To the slow, steady rhythm inside our heads.

My body and mind fully immersed
Down here there is no one to be cruel
No one to make me feel cursed.
Down here only I exist
No one to disapprove
Down here there are no clenched fists
No one to judge my every move.
Down here I finally feel alive
No more trying to find hope
Down here I finally have the urge to survive
No one telling me how to cope.
Down here I only see beauty
No more scarring of my mind
Down here there is no constant cruelty
No more smiles to try and find.
Down here there is no happiness to feign
No more attempting to make peace
Down here I can feel no pain
No more trying to fix things piece by piece.
But now through these depths I must swim
Make my way back into the world.
I re-enter this life limb by limb
As I lie on the surface, my body unfurled.
PhoenixHis chest covered with bloodPhoenix2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Her sweat sliding down her face
She was holding his hand
And took him into her embrace
With her arms around him
She cried while he looked into her eyes
He was dying but it was ok
The sun was too far in the skies
"I love you" she said
And he received it with a sigh
Now that he knows it
It is harder to die
Tears fell on his body
And turned into ash
She saw a fire being born
And a reflection in it like a flash
He rose with fire to the heaven
Her embrace became empty and she felt cold
Looking at him fly away she knew he won't leave her
"I love you",once upon a time she told

Sky is Falling DownThe sky seems to be falling over meSky is Falling Down1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The ground feels like it's
Being pulled from under my feet
I've never felt so lost before
Or felt this alone as I walk a crowded street
I wonder what's happening to me
Why does my heartbeat
Feel so weak
Why do I feel so empty inside
Will I ever feel complete
I'm in pain again
Maybe its exactly what I need
Stop the numbness
Get the wrist starting to bleed
And I guess it'll be another night
Where I drink, cry and beg to god
To free me of the pain
Because I'm tired of wearing this facade
I'll drink and cut myself
Which is really kind of odd
How can this help me feel relief
Like me, Happiness is just a fraud
All night I'll pray to god
To help me take away the pain
On my knees with my hands up to the sky
As blood is squirting out my veins
Though I know it deep inside
That my efforts are in vain
I can bleed myself dry tonight
Freedom is not that easy to obtain

Is she haunted by the past ..closes her eyes and just sees herself and me
Or maybe I'm the only one who still lives these memories
I close my eyes..and there she is...just a disease
And I know that I'll be infected still...for centuries
But I hope at least ..that she'll forget
That she'll move on..have no regret.
No reason to be upset...or know that I..haven't let go yet
That she completely forgets the day we met
And hope this time around she plays a better role..than that of my Juliet
I just don't want her to feel broken the way that I do
Everyday having my face down because I'm feeling so blue
Just wearing a smile..even I recognize being see-through
Yeah..one everyone sees through...even without knowing what we have been through
And of course that I miss you...even if in my head all that I see is you
Yeah I want you to move on..but secretly yearn to be missed too

Behind Her SmileI love her smileBehind Her Smile1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The way her thick lips
seem to bend
the way her top lip
falls onto the bottom one
And makes the
perfect angle at the ends
I love her smile
It makes me feel content
I love the mix signals
That it sends
But why does it always feel
Like her smile is just pretend
Why do her eyes
Feel like if she's crying
There are no tears
But her expression feels like if she's lying
Did she cry
and her eye's are just now drying
She's awe inspiring
She wears a smile
But I wonder what it's hiding
Its a disguise
she's hiding it inside
I can see it in her eyes
That her smile is full of lies
She can keep on faking
Like she tries
What does she hide
She wears a mask
That I just can't despise
I wonder what she's hiding
behind that smile
I wish that she would show
