Theres not much else to say but that
Im tired of crying
Im tired of feeling alone
Im tired of everyone being against me
Im tired of making mistakes
Im tired of wanting to start over
Im tired of wanting to die
Im tired of wanting to live
Im tired of being tired.
Everyday its the same routine, I smile
I smile not just because I cant show anybody what I really feel but also because I want to believe its real
Its better to be positive until it all comes crashing down
They got me this far, they are my savior
They make me want to live
They saved my life.
They are creatures in my head
They are only real to me
I want them

In The Distance
I've realized that nothing never really ends
Because it's just the beginning of the emptiness
I want to take back my actions / I want to give you reasons
I said all of the words I've needed
And to the mirror
I wish those were silent confessions / I wish none of this had happened
I finally let out all of those feelings I hid
Beneath my surface
They're just emotions from a fallen / Because without you I'm nothing
I meant every single tear I cried
My one true purpose
I'm feeling so forsaken and faithless / To my world you're everything
I couldn't hold on as I slowly let go of my grip

But they still lingered in my conscience.
My diminishing strength rains down upon me in a heavy downpour,
Drenching my whole entire soul.
I can't get myself detached from this sinking feeling,
Like there's truly nothing left of me.
I gave up hiding in the shadows,
And came out to be exposed to the light,
But I never really belonged here.
I didn't know what I was doing,
But suddenly nothing was that important to me anymore.
I just had to fill in that gap,
So I'll no longer feel alone.
I wondered whether or not I could be a part of your world.
I pushed myself to be i
Always YouIt's always you.Always You1 year ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
You were the reason I was happy
Days of feeling comfortable
In my skin,
Of knowing I was good enough,
If only for a while.
And only for a while it was.
You were why I was smiling
So many smiles.
Feelings I'd forgotten abound,
And now it's like we never mattered.
You were the reason I could sleep
My only source of dreams.
No more nightmares,
Fears fought away
Cradled in hopes,
My only form of safety
Found in your voice.
A voice I'm afraid I'll one day forget.
Now you're why I'm confused
So lost in my

A Poem by: Bryanna Harbin
The quiet one in the back of the room
The obnoxious, annoying one complaining
The one who's always happy
The belligerent bully picking on a kid
The sassy one talking back to the teacher
The one talking to them self
The singing "butterfly" humming a tune
The intellectual one working
The artist sketching anime
The one who committed suicide
We are all the same
You may not notice at first glance
But, we all have deeply hurt
We all have asked that one question:
Hopelessness finds a home in our hearts
We may all cope differently than others
Yet, we all believe a single thought:
How My Eyes Are Glowing The worst part is the people all around us. I wish I could ignore them, but I am too nervous to look into your eyes, and I have to look somewhere.How My Eyes Are Glowing3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It's the kids that are too scared to dance. You know, the ones that make a joke out of it and pretend they don't care, pretend it doesn't bother them that they are all alone. I hate the ones that wink at me slyly or grin and snap a photo, blinding me and making my cheeks burn.
I glare as hard as I can, believe me.

The dragon's name was Verge, meaning "Guardian". He was a kind dragon and loved children. Because of this, he was the granted the title "The Guardian of Children".
However, deep within the darkest part of the forest, there lived an evil elf queen. Her name was Forlatt, meaning "Abandoned". When Forlatt was younger, she lived within a marvelous kingdom, but, the embodiment of hatred and anger took Fo
Darkness and lightOnce I lived in a world of darkness, once I lived in a world of misery. I was alone, I was sad. I hated life, I hated love, I hated me. The darkness kept me blind, I was a fool. When she left me, I was engulfed in darkness. I have been in darkness so long, I have forgotten how to genuinely laugh. I have forgotten how to smile, how to feel love. I am miserable in the darkness, but it is all I know. When I lost you, I lost everything. My heart, my soul, my mind. I, lost everything. And then she came to me, an angel.

Letting GoLoosen your grip on reality,Letting Go9 months ago in Emotional More Like This
Now let go.
Slip away without regrets.
Bad days roll in and out,
but they will pass eventually.
Because there is light.
I will let you go someday,
but not now.
Now I need the memory of you to help carry me through.
But it's hard.
And I can't do it alone anymore.
Breaking down each day,
my burdens getting heavier with each passing moment.
My blood is thinning and I can't shed anymore.
So let me shed my tears instead,
It seems its all I have to give.
reach for my hand and help me out of this place I cannot rescue myself from.

Listless tunes pouring into lifeless ears.
Out the door with your favorite waistcoat,
Keeping a cold heart warm through the years.
A different place,
Some other guy,
A new one to replace.
Downing every shot just to wash the guilt away,
Popping pills behind dirty bathroom doors.
Getting felt up on the dance floor as you strut and sway,
Don't know his name and he doesn't care about yours.
Come home to me,
I won't be asleep,
I'll be waiting for you,
Hope you'll be home soon...
Homework Never HurtI gazed out the window, watching as my housemates headed down the street, laughing with their friends. My heart ached, but I had lost the ability to cry a long time ago.Homework Never Hurt6 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
"It's no good to wish for what isn't," I scolded myself as I turned away from the window.
Even after being here for so long, there was hardly ever laughter in my room, in my heart. I didn't know why - people talked to me while I was at school, or at work, but that's as far as it went. If I asked someone if they wanted to hang out, they never had time, or there'd never be near my house and yet, they'd always find time to come see my housemates.

The fools who think they have all the answers
The ones who try so hard to tear me apart
Till I stand up and I'm ready to outsmart
Listen to your brain, it's telling you you've lost
You don't have the guts, you're not ready for the cost
Bring it on, I've been ready to beat them
Bring it on, I'm fighting for my freedom
Do you really hear these words I'm saying?
Back off, find the haters I've been slaying
Quit pointing fingers and blaming
My words of advice are one man's treasure
My pain and sorrow is another man's pleasure
Talent is something you can never measure

who will see me from the sky
I just want a healer
who will bring my hopes from low to high
I just want an instructor
who will teach me to dance in the rain
I just want a listener
to save me from the pain
A watch who remembers
me through out their days
Like a child on a beach
who can see me even with the waves
A gentle helping hand
cascading through my hair
Like two charms on a bracelet
Lost without the other pair
One like a tree
standing big and tall
One soft as a cloud
to catch me when I fall
But most of all I want a friend who understands me
And holds me
And cares for me
