DreamThere he stands,Dream2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The man simply known as Dream.
He's different now, fallen from grace,
And risen back up to it.
He was a joyous man, but he was beaten,
Torn and scarred, starved and tormented.
How did he get past it all they question me.
I know the answer, only because I asked him myself.
This is what he said to me,
"You can only be broken so much,
Eventually they stop trying,
Then you take every scar,
Every fracture and shattered piece,
And turn them into strengths and advantages.
Since they can't hurt you anymore,
You have nothing left to fear."
He turned his tortured soul into flawlessness.
That is who he is now, a happy wounded soul,
A perfect little broken Dream.
My QueenFor reasons unknownMy Queen2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have fallen for you
There is something great,
Something extraordinarily different
That draws my thoughts to you
And I may never know
Exactly what that is
But what I do know is
I've always believed
That my heart belongs
Wherever my mind goes
When it begins to wander
And that can only be you
For you are queen
Of the kingdom of my heart
Do They Even Know? (Beautiful World Part II)After years and yearsDo They Even Know? (Beautiful World Part II)2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Of sitting in sorrow,
Watching the Beautiful World
Outside my window,
Feeling pain of separation
The great divide between me and them
It felt as though my heart were made of wood
And termites were slowly eating away,
But they would never finish
There was always more to consume.
I just wanted to die,
To escape torment
But for some cruel reason,
I was never given that option.
Now I just lie on the floor
The carapace of a person
Existing, but not really alive
All days blur together
I'm not even sure, exactly
How long I've been here
Scrunched up in a ball
With all my hope lost.
I just feel nothing,
I've become anesthetized.
And now all I do is wonder,
Does the world outside,
Even know I am here?

To lift me up
When I have fallen
Even as I write, you are what I desire
I wish to look you in the eyes
To tell you once again
How much you mean to me
And now, more than ever
I just want to hold you
Tell you not to be discouraged
Everything will work out

How you make me feel?
It's doubtful at best
For I don't even know
Who you are
I may have clues
But do I really want to know?
Yes, of course I do
Just the thought of you
Passing through my mind
Fills my heart with joy
I want to dance with you
Sing with you
Let you in my heart
And hope you want the same
But I'm not sure
If I have the courage
To tell you
Or even figure out who you are

I stare into those eyes once again
Think back to when I first met you
How you stood out among the others
And for one short second that day
You were the only other one in the room
I knew there was something about you
Something incredibly great and special
And now I find myself back in the moment
I have no doubts, no concerns
I am sure you are the one
The one I have been looking for
All of this time
And that’s when it happens
I say the words “I do”
Have You Ever Felt This Way?Do you have any idea what it’s like?Have You Ever Felt This Way?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To live every day, not knowing what day it is,
Because you just don’t care?
Because you are numb, you feel nothing….
Depression is not what people are telling you…
It’s not just a sadness, it’s more a feeling of nothingness
You smile and laugh, you feign happiness
But in reality you feel nothing,
You just know that is what you are supposed to do
And the last thing you want, is someone asking about it
So you just keep being a fake, and you survive
You lose track of the days
Because time goes by so slow when you can’t feel a thing
You feel as if you shouldn’t even exist
You feel as though nobody notices you anyway
What’s the point to living when you aren’t really alive?
You keep asking that question
But you never have an answer
You never will have an answer
But you keep moving forward anyway
Till you reach the day where you’ve had enough
You stop listening to what everyone else has to
Thank You, Dear FriendsWhy am I still hereThank You, Dear Friends2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When I should be down
On the ground
Curled up in a ball
Feeling nothing but pain
Why are they still here
All of my friends
Surrounding me each day
Did I do something
To deserve to have them
I don't think so
But I am glad they are here
For without them
I would most certainly be broken
Thank you dear friends
For not turning your backs on me
Even when I am in my darkest hour
Forever FreeAmong the wreckageForever Free2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A city burned by me
That is where I found it
Where I found myself
Looking at the damage
Damage brought by my hands
A voice heard deep inside
“Won’t you ever tire of this?
All the anger, the rage?
Where does it get you?
Can’t you just let it happen?
Let yourself be happy?”
To this day I don’t know
Exactly whose words those were
Words of mine maybe?
A side of me that was done
And ready for joy
Or the words of God?
Telling me there is more
More out there for me
And all this time after
I've lived to redeem myself
I had finally found my identity, right?
But have I misunderstood?
Was redemption already given?
Am I free to not burden myself?
Have I spent years suffering pointlessly?
From this day forward, no longer
No Longer will I think I deserve it
No longer will I let this haunt me
No longer will I fail to rise up
For now I have truly found who I am
Forever I shall be free
Who am I?Who am I?Who am I?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A man who could walk all night
And never find what I am searching for
A man who could sit and think for hours
And not come up with the answer I need
A man who believes in love above all else
But doesn’t know what to do when it’s his
A man who reaches success
Only to throw it all away
A man who is struggling
Yet won’t ask for help
But is this really who I am?
Who am I?
ImportantI took a moment tonightImportant1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And thought about some things
Things that are “important” in life
School, work, money, the usual
Stuff I've been taught takes priority
But no matter how hard I try
Nothing can convince me
That anything’s more valuable
Than the happiness I feel with you
So I guess what I am trying to say is…
You are what is most important
You have been for a while now
As cliché as it may be to say
I love you
I want you
I need you
Beautiful WorldI look into a mirrorBeautiful World2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And I can almost visualize it
The darkness inside me
Breaking the surface of my skin
Covering everything around me
Drowning my room in emptiness
Then I turn around
Walk to the window and look outside
I see everything I can never be
I see the light, I see happiness
Belonging and beauty
When I look upon all that is in this world
I know I am not a part of it
I'm an outsider looking in
Desiring all of it
But when I step toward it
It all just moves twice as far
So I stop trying to go to it
As to not further myself from it even more
VacancyLife has kept goingVacancy2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Without your presence in it
On the outside
It all seems the same
But inside me
There is a vacancy
A room meant just for you
Letting my thoughts wander
They travel past your room
And I can only think
A single phrase
Tu me manques
I miss you
Your ChoiceYou carry with youYour Choice2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
An aura of beautiful serenity
Calming those around you
Stealing my thoughts
When you leave my presence
Although I have yet to see
I imagine that even in
A moment of faltering
You would be elegant
And if the day comes
That you stumble
I will be there for you
But do you know that?
Could you possibly know that?
For you know not who I am
But some day
I will reveal myself
And it will be up to you
To either accept me
Or cast me away for good
Like many before you
Delayed RealityYour fantasy a realityDelayed Reality2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is it anything like you dreamed?
Does my heart beat the same?
Or is it faster? Stronger?
Was it as peaceful as you thought?
Did you feel the warmth?
Are you comfortable being held?
Please do me this favor…
Look back…look back on that moment
When you were enveloped in fantasy
Could you feel it in your heart?
That feeling, deep down, that you knew
Knew it wasn't really fantasy
But reality that had yet to occur.

Through These EyesIn a city where it rains so muchThrough These Eyes2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
How easy it is to just see gray
Not through these eyes though
These eyes see color everywhere
No sadness will be found in the rain
By me all that's found is joy and serenity
Each drop hitting the ground is a small symphony
I say let these tears of bliss fall from the sky
Breathe life into the plants
Quench the thirst of the city
This is what I see in a city so "gray"
And it is through these eyes
I catch a glimpse of something angelic
Inside of you,when I look into your eyes,
I can see it, feel it, deep inside of you
A mysterious elegance that pierces the heart
I know now, my queen, there is nothing
Nothing more exquisitely divine than you

Vulnerable to an assault on my emotions

I now must live every day
Risking my heart's extinction
