Where's my Wonderland?"Where's My Wonderland"
I followed the white rabbit,
He was running late.
I followed him, through the rotting garden,
Until he led me to a hole,
Beneath the hollow tree.
Down the hole he went,
And I followed.
Down the rabbit hole I fell.
Down I fell,
Through the grief,
I fell down past the swirling darkness,
The ticking clocks,
That mocked all my life decisions.
"Why did you do it?" they asked.
They played my memories over and over,
Inside their ticking cores.
I kept falling.
But when I hit the ground,
With an audible thud,
There was nothing.
No wonderland for me to discover.

I see you everyday,
But you never seem to care.
Every word I say,
Filled with hope,
Is just noise to you.
You hear nothing,
But your own selfish thoughts.
I tried everything I could,
But still you refuse to see me,
Hear my voice.
Why can't you hear me screaming your name?
Am I that pathetic to you?
Is my life that worthless to you?
Is there a reason,
That I trusted you,
And ended up here all on my own?
Is there a reason,
That you can't see the sorrow on my face?
I put all my heart,
All my soul,
Every ounce I could,
You refuse to see me.
You used to mean everything to

Dear Mother Earth,
I'm sorry. We've taken advantage of you.
We took your beautiful creations, and destroyed them all.
The water you have provided was poisoned.
The vast garden you planted was tainted.
The air you allow us to breathe has been contaminated.
I'm sorry for all that we have done.
We deserve the punishment we receive.
It's truly sad and unwanted,
But I'm sorry.
Every day is a battle to nurse you back to health.
You'll shiver and tremble,
The ground underneath me will shake with my terror.
You'll sweat from your fever,
We'll try to fix all that is falling down,
In our rush to fix you.

It use to be so simple.
Wake up in the morning, so happy to be alive.
Sun warm on my face,
Snow soft on my skin.
Everything was so perfect.
The only thing to make it better,
Was for time it's self to stop and indulge in the bliss.
But of course, time stops for no one.
Time will pass and we will grow up.
Into what, I don't know.
I do know,
That we must change as time continues.
Nothing is simple anymore.
Pressure of a mother,
Who wants a 4.0 no matter what.
Even if it means cheating.
4.0s and scholarships.
So many requirements that cannot be met.
Hard work consuming you.
With only short

It's all gone.
Ripped from my heart without warning,
Leaving me empty,
Unable to fill this void.
Maybe I used it all up.
Perhaps each person only gets so much.
And once they've used it all,
Their gas tanks forever remains on empty.
Then they're just a broken car on the side of the road.
I wonder where it went.
That sweet voice,
That used to whisper thoughts to my mind.
My beautiful muse,
That helped me paint picture with words.
With out it,
I am nothing.
But a fool.
A fool staring down at a blank sheet of paper,
That I cannot fill.
It's like something's broken.
All my gears have stopped turning.

I'm so tired of being here,
In this world of hatred and ignorance.
I'm sick of nobody understanding what's really going on.
No body can seem to hear.
Everybody is so blind.
Can you hear me screaming?
Can you see me bleeding?
I can't stop it.
Its claws are tearing at my mind.
I can hear its screams.
I can feel its blood thirsty claws
I can taste its hatred.
The monster inside my head is almost here.
But it doesn't matter.
Nobody can hear me scream.

When I think about you
Warmth and sorrow fill my heart.
I remember all the happiness,
All of it that we shared.
I want you to feel that,
The happines and love.
But then, I remember,
The day it all ended.
I remember crying over you soulless body.
I feel the dispair that rushes in me,
Through my veins.
I remember sitting there,
When I think of our memories,
From when we smiled together,
To the day you died.
I want you to know one thing.
Remember our past.
Can you remember it?
Can you feel me?
Creation of Destruction"Creation of Destruction"Creation of Destruction8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Nothing pure falls from these hands.
All that I have touched,
Suffered a fate of agony,
As it burned to the ground.
All that once bloomed with life,
Is now withered to its hollow core.
So many things clear of heart,
Rotted with a simple flick of the wrist.
There is nothing left for me,
But the stars that gaze at me from space.
So far away from my tragically tainted atmosphere.
So far away,
Bright and brave.
Made to guide our way through the night,
Silent and dark as it may be.
How pure are they I wonder.
Away from the existence of humanity,
How blissful it must be.
From the vast sky

I wanna free fall,
Fifty miles from the sky.
Through the twinkling stars,
And the soft damp clouds.
I want to stretch out my arms,
And let the world come into my grasp.
I want to hear the angels sing as I fly past them
I want to hear the flap of the wings of a fluttering bird.
Through the air,
I want to fall,
Through the air,
I want to dream.
I want to live.
I need to be free.

I'm not sure how I should tell you this.
I thought it would've hit me by now.
Perhaps I can write you a poem?
No, I'm no good at that.
Maybe I should play you a song...
That won't do,
I'm tone deaf.

No, this is the twenty-first century,
Plus that's tacky.

She looks away when you catch her eye,
Asks you how you are,
Even though you have just asked the same...
Does this not seem strange?
She acts like being fine,
Is all part of the job description,
She bottles it up inside,
I wonder what she hides.
She sits down and listens to your problems,
Listens and thinks intently,
But have you not seen that far off look in her eyes,
That appears every once in a while?
It never stays for long,
Pops in then straight back out,
Sometimes she has to shake herself,
To bring her thoughts back to reality.

Day after day,
As i slowly go insane,
My sanity soon,
A long lost memory.
If i see you next to never,
How can we say forever?
All i ever wanted was to save a bed,
And have you sleep in arms instead.
I had promised,
What ever it takes,
No matter how much my heart breaks,
I would wait for you...
I may need to break that promise,
I re-read those conversations,
I look at those sweet things you said,
And my heart breaks,
I always wondered how we would last,
This little romance,
I always thought,
That what ever it took,
I would take the chance.
But i can't.

Not for things I've done and not for things I've heard or seen
Not for what I seemed to be, not even for the truth
Not for what I have accomplished in my shortened youth
Please, just let my feelings hit the cold, damp, moldy floor
I know my emotions didn't matter much before
All I ask is, when I die, don't worry over pain
All I ask is, when I die, just treat me much the same

Not as soon as I saw you in the flesh.
We were over before we began.
It's true you had (have) that quality
Which makes men's jaws grow tight
And their knuckles whiten.
You were handsome enough, at least,
To make every other woman sigh,
Seemingly, when you blinked.
I watched you as you prowled through them
Hunting for the one that was me,
Without even knowing who I was.
And as you did so, I felt the most uncontrollable urge
To claim you as my birth right.
So I did. That was my first mistake.

What have I ever done,
To make you have so little faith in me?
Perfection slipped out of my grasp,
But I try so hard,
To make you happy.
I spend my days reading,
Sitting by myself,
In the large quiet room.
Doing nothing wrong,
All by lonesome.
But still you accuse me.
Last time is was smoking.
No, the smell makes me sick.
It's disgusting, as you have always taught me.
But guess what?
I found a pack in your bag today.
The betrayal is infuriated.
I'm the mistake,
For doing nothing wrong.
I'm the screw up.
I'm the one to be pierced into,
With those hateful eyes.

Not where I reside.
But where I thrive,
That is my home.
When I first arrived
Here in this grassy plateau...
I saw no one else.
Just an empty flatland.
But one by one,
The curtains fell
Off of their cold,
Rigid, steel hooks.
What lie behind...
I thought I'd never find.
A faint shadow...
In the shape of a person.
One behind each sheet,
Standing as straight as
The trunk of a tree.
Looking strangely puzzled.
And one by one,
As I gaze at the figures,
Their attention become focused
On the figure... of me.
Slowly, I began to see
Who they truly were.
They were my family.
Tried and true.
