"It's better to have loved and lost,
then to never have loved at all."
I guess that all depends
on how the loss occurred.
Was it something that
eventually faded away
or did it end up turning,
into some form of hate?
"There's a fine line
between love and hate."
There once was a time
when you used to love me,
way back when,
you probably hate me
because we're no longer friends.
But that's fine,
because I kind of despise you too,
for all the pain
you put me though.
"True love will never die
and will always stand the test of time."
I guess the love that I knew,
never really was true,
because if it was,
then it would still be alive.
There would still be a "we"
instead of just you
"Time heals all wounds"
which is a complete lie.
A total bunch of crock
said in love's demise.
Although, it might sting a little less
eventually given some time.
But it will never completely mend
and a part
will always remain
It's just so

Brown hair, brown eyes,
Dreaming that one day she'll touch the skies.
Though she knows deep down it's not possible;
She's too busy poppin' OC's to make herself feel unstoppable.
So she finds herself:
Tracing dragons in the marshmallow smoke with her fingertips
Denying the bittersweet taste on her lips
Because she's trying to keep the monsters at bay
Knowing that one day,
The OCean's gonna rise up and burn her alive;
That these foil-blacked fingertips will betray her, she strives
To keep this memory in the forefront of her mind,
Though she must admit, she was rather blind
When it came to drugs. I mean,
It took her awhile to realize

Sound of the gun,
The crowd quickly freezes
Under the sun,
Sound of the gun,
The crowd quickly frenzies
Protect your young,
Put down the gun,
Do not hesitate
Nobody has won,
Too late to go back
Only one track,
Don't reach for that...
Sound of the gun,
Nobody has won,
Round in a circle,
Shot in the face
From this desolate place
Malevolent clock tower,
A gruesome grave
Everyone will remember,

but I locked myself out of my voice
and the keys are sitting useless in the ignition.
and I'm tripping
on the words that keep on slipping
from your Pepsi-flavored lips,
and you keep dipping them in acid
and you can't see how much it hurts
because you're strong.
You've never been burned.
We had so much in common,
and I don't just mean astrology.
I'm talking 'bout biology, psychology:
I had a seven month love affair with reading your emotions,
and you, with taking the words right out of my mouth.
Thus "he" and "she"
became "they" and "we",
And where was "I"? 'Cause I wasn't "me".
And that's when I realized I was wrong.
We were never the same.
I got a connection, perfection,
I got a direction,
You got an erection,
is that what I mean to you?
'Cause I saw you in my reflection,
two souls looking for protection,
except what I was looking for
wasn't made of latex.
I wish I could throw myself in the wash machine with the shirt yo
BipolarEvery day, wake up and take a pillBipolar5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So you don't go looking for lethal thrills.
Haven't you ever wanted to go to the brink
Of destruction, just to see if you'd sink
Into the clutches of death or if you'd survive
Just because God still wants you alive?
You live on time stolen not borrowed
From some intangible thing called tomorrow.
Forget that white, round pill stamped 1-4-2
And you'll realize how much you can do
If only they would let you try
To jump off, spread your wings, and fly.
But even with the meds in your system,
You still aren't without symptoms.
Your working memory abilities
Are poor enough to come to futility.
Imagine the frustration when you find
You can't recall what was in your mind
Just moments before. You find yourself lacking
And your brain seems to be slacking,
Even when you're given some cues
Not everything comes to mind for you.
And not only memory, but functioning speed
Is a hindrance and daily you find you need
More time than others do to process events
Coming BackYou looked at me with sunset eyesComing Back2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Teeming with an ocean’s depth
Waves were crashing down your cheeks
Tears you should have never wept
And I heard a sound I’ll not forget
The slamming front door as you left
In shock I waited as tragedy unfurled
Denial settled into the silence of my world
Without a glance or shallow sigh
You left me here with no goodbye
But in my heart there grew an ache
A pain that, most nights, keeps me awake
And now I finally realize
What I saw in those shining eyes
Not the sunset; the sunrise
So this was never a goodbye
This was letting go.
And now I’m coming back.

I cringed as I felt what was undeniably another crick in my neck. Painfully rolling my head around on my shoulders in what I hoped to be a subtle move, I once again cursed myself for passing out on the floor the night, or should I say morning, before.
Roxanne nearly had a heart attack when she found me lying face-down on the floor just an hour ago judging by the way she frantically flipped me over and shook my shoulders. Since then I'd been finding ache after ache after ache on my body.
I was sitting in Bruce's state-of-the-art kitchen, watching Roxanne flip some omelets for us as my memories of the last twenty-four hours washed over me.
I still hadn't told Roxanne about my conversation with the Joker, having a strong feeling that I'd somehow be mocked relentlessly due to the Joker's reasoning behind his anger. No, I knew for a fact that I'd be teased.
I sighed for what was surely the hundredth time since I awoke. As much as I deeply desired to hide my head in the sand like

Telling me to leave.
To leave behind all I once loved,
All I once knew.
To take a cold, hard blade to my skin.
And though I started walking towards the darkness,
Soon I would walk towards the light.
I couldn't help but think;
I thought of my mother, my brothers, my father,
About my friends and the rest of my family;
And then I thought of my sister.
She went through this too, the whispering breeze beckoned her once too.
But she didn't listen, no, she walked away.
Her skin marred, still she was the most beautiful girl in the world, and I thought,
"Man, I want to be like her."
A blast came, and with it, a wave of thoughts.
About all I could do if I just walked away,
About - if I did go through with this, how others would react.
And a matter of fact,
I would have rather have been smacked.
I didn't want to cause them pain,
But now I see past that.
Now I want to live.
And as I walked away from the darkness,
I felt a burden taken off of me,
I was, and

Ready for execution.
Eyes set upon the target,
Because I see no other resolution.
I stretch my arm backward,
Ready to launch the unforgiving weight.
As I pray to God I don't miss
While the other half of me whispers, "Wait."
But time winds down,
So I thrust it forward and the mirror shatters.
I am finally free from myself.
And that's the only thing that matters.

You see the ways their eyes linger on you
When they're looking around the room
The way their bodies brush yours when you're walking through the hallways to class
The way they stutter and look away when apologizing for the accidental contact of skin to skin
You see it coming from the men.
You never see it coming from me.
God, was the world not complicated enough already
Without causing me to notice the interplay of textures in her hands
The calluses like mahogany mountains carving ridges of stone
Into her palms softer than Impressionistic sunlight?
I'm not supposed to feel this way about another woman. I'm not supposed to sit here
With a star around my neck and daydream about the way her tongue could taste like cinnamon,
Like my grandmother's home, like gingerbread cookies and the dawn of Christmas morning
These words are blasphemy, so I call upon God to give me a reason for my emotions.
Wasn't the world fucked up enough already without this?

Trace the silver ripples

Count the auburn stanzas 'tween

Ride upon the vessel

Open sky-stripped windows

Shuffle through the metaphors
Awaking through the ground
Slant the sails of poetry

Deep into the jungles where

Catch the winds of free verse

Sift through ocean ballads

Study drops of scripture

Sleep between the pages
