AloneOut of sight, and out of mind,
not a soul around but mine
one and all have been and gone
and I am left all alone
Search the silence for their solice
left behind in lands gone lawless
to search these sands forever more
I am left all alone
Darkness falls, and silence whispers
And in the night, the sky doth blister
With stars of every shape and size
And I am left all alone
One by one, the stars doth fade
Like wishes, sadly, never made
when silence screams throughout the night
And I am left all alone.
Hopeless and tired I make my bed
a secret heaven to lay my head
where I shall slumber all alone
Bright lights may shine, but I am

everything I ever felt...
all for you.
LOOK at these scars
ALL up my arms
cant you SEE the burn marks
from the PAIN from the flame
that BURNED from my heart
could you know of the pain
as you RIPPED IT APART
there is no god...
there are no angels...
i am forsaken
if i could go BACK
and fix what has PASSED
or look through the GLASS
i WOULD'VE moved mountains
i WOULD'VE dug graves
we'll NEVER go back now
pain cant be ERASED
taking the knife...
taking the gun...
turn it on myself
i SHOULD'VE been more
but i JUST let you go
i COULD'VE done more
BUT we'll never KNOW
I'm ENDING this story
now i'm breaking your heart
i HOPE you remember
MINE WAS YOURS FROM THE START.
i'll never forget...
you'll never forget...
the world can't forget...
it can't forget...
yet we'll all be forgotten.

Soft breath against soft lips
And soft whispers speak their soft words
I am here and you are mine
This calmness scares my quiet, doe eyes
And with your hands around my hips
I close my aching lids.
I'm at peace
If you make me feel so special,
Then why are you so bad?
I can see the faint red clouds,
Of dust and ash
They follow you wherever you go
They are your demons
They are your past
I cannot help but feel my heart flutter in response
With new life and love
With new worry and despair
My fingers reach out and I try
To peel back the mask
See through this invisible film of fog
But it's not there
Like clear, tasteless poison
You have my heart
And it's too late now

bloody and torn
you've fallen down,
from what we held so high.
Scissors and Knives"Your saccharine ribs are so fragile."Scissors and Knives6 years ago in Horror More Like This
She tore open my chest today, with her scissors. Just because I didn't love her anymore. It's not my fault I think girls who's lives revolve around scissors and knives are total creeps. Their was so much pain though.
She examined my organs, pushing them around with one of her knives beneath my cracked ribs.
It felt like my entire chest was slowly burning. Very, very slowly.
"Did anyone ever tell you that your lungs look like diamonds?"
She spoke to me during the procedure, telling me that since I don't love her, she was surgically going to remove my heart and replace it with the mechanical heart she stored in a jar beneath her bed- where the words 'I love Meriwether' were encrusted all over. She says that I'll always love her if it's inside me.
But the sad thing is, is that I know she doesn't know how to surgically remove or apply anything to me. I'll be dead by the time she rips my heart out anyway.

Bitter sweet alcohol crusts your lips
A stale tinge dancing under my nose.
Your saturated breathe is repulsively appealing;
Drawing me in until our lips meet
In a rush of blood;
Tongues fusing in dark waters:
Shock to the veins.
I taste the overdose
As it poisons your system:
It's in control.
You're in control.
Pushing me across the room
Hands crawling across my body:
And all of a sudden I'm on the floor.
Purple growing ripe across my forehead
I wince with the action.
But you take no time
In the same swift movement,
You're on top of me.
Grinding me into the floor.
Hips lock together.
The same sour smell winds its way
Drinking it down,
In a gasp of air:
I push you away.
Our lips but part with both a sodden coating.
Yet once again;
You bear down on me.
From your mouth:
Drones of insanity.
I dare not but plea my freedom
From your pugnaci

i'm going to the same hospital
with a different nurse
a different doctor,
to fix the same brain,

I can't hold back the seasonsYou blew this candle out, and now the horizons will forever be constellations.I can't hold back the seasons6 years ago in Teen More Like This
September nights have always been the same.
Those small and fragile rivers beginning to slowly freeze over. The pine branch sculptures encrusted over their thick layer of see through skin. A forbidden silhouette for the world to see.
You said you liked that.
I cant breathe with your lips on mine.
October nights have always been the same.
The cherry blossom days are over and the threaded gold leaves are in the air, tying themselves to the frail arms of dying oak trees.
You said you loved that.
The clocks have stopped, and the tables have turned. Just to be turned again.
November nights have always been the same.
You bite your lips and watch blood fall on a new orchestra of snow, the shards of ice exploding with the warm velvet- sparkling and flaring throughout the lamplight of your lantern.
You said you liked me.

She wears prune-purple bruises on her chest and tire-track gashes on her spine, and like when the fox bites the hound, it is painful.
She is gorgeous but she is still just a spine with out a vertebrae; while I am a selfish lover, that lets languages of forbidden hope rot in my throat, and rest in my jaw.
( and we both take a step back, and fall through the holes in the clouds.)
"Don't let this sanity slip from your hands, your priorites are backwards but your eyes remain aware."
I wear bite-mark gashes on my stomach and vinyl-green bruises on my eyelids, and like when an insect drowns in water, I sink.
I am selflessness, and you are a heart bound beneath a quiet sea, empty-handed and waiting for the next chapter to unfold.
( and we keep this on our mind, like the yellow on our teeth.)

Bury me with this flaskLast night we spent the entire night at the cemetery, sitting on the ancient graves, watching them crack and blow dust away beneath our weight. The crumbling stone falling to the flaky dark yellow grasses beneath our pale feet. Then, for a time, we'd watch the disappearing time of night wash away behind the kiss of the moonlight.Bury me with this flask6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
We would take swigs from the flask you held with elation at your palm. I'd pretend to sip it because the bitter, mint tastes of the alcohol was too gut wrenching and heart pounding to swallow. I'd keep it in my mouth, though, and when you weren't looking I'd rub the fluid over my broken skin. Twitching at the exhilarating pain.
You were the alcoholic, your eyes bloodshot like a dead sparrow's beneath the glow of the luminous crystalline stars.
I loved it.
It's stunning how statuesquely shaped your veins were, at least, the ones you could see beneath the sheik layer of your skin. The alcohol mixed in solely at the time with you
lillianThis is the story of a girl named Lillian: The girl who only had one dream.lillian6 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
"Her sea-side eyes are the kind you'd tear out and nail to your ceilings; so that there would always be someone to watch over you. Always."
She sleeps with vermillion laced nightmares and radio-static dreams. Nobody knows why though, she can't dream anyways, and she already lives in her nightmares. But Lillian does enjoy one thing- something most of us take for granted, water. She loves the water and the sea, she says it's like floating, and however much that you sink- you can always climb back up, and float again. That's why her eyes reflect the sparkles of the ripples.
Lillian and the water may be two different objects- maybe even with two different hearts; and as connected as they might be. They can only hold one heart in their chest, because it takes less maintenance.
"She doesn't breathe; not anymore at least."
She rips out her teeth from her gums and replaces them with the pearls she finds inside
The Love of a Wolf"Do you know your place in the pack?" growled Ty, the alpha male who had yet to choose a mate.The Love of a Wolf6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"I know my place, pal, but I'm not sure you know yours. Aren't you supposed to leave cussing out the girls to the lower ranks?" I looked at him, amused.
He growled and glared at me, his dark black eyes glinting with danger.
I wrapped my tail around me and sat down on the ground, what I knew he would represent as the ultimate sign of disrespect.
Unsurprisingly, he bared his fangs and lunged at me. I quickly slid to the side and seeing him changing direction in midair, I snapped at his snout and sidestepped again. I watched him back off, his snout nicked by my fangs.
Laughing, I said,
"So this is how powerful the ultimate fighter is. Not much, eh?"
He stood at his full height, and seeing I came only up to his shoulders, he chuckled in the way that only wolves can.
"You've got a long way to go before you can catch up, despite your little tricks."
He sprinted past me, his paws barely brushing the
Growing up, Growing apartgrowing up is never fun,Growing up, Growing apart6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
when we learn what we don't want to know
learn to be hurt,
and learn to hurt others,
we grow apart,
and secretly we miss each other,
but we'll hide it,
even from ourselves
and make new enemies,
from people who were once friends,
they do us wrong,
and we do them,
and friendship turns to hate,
we can rebuild,
but its not the same,
as when we were little kids,
falling out and being friends
within days, hours, or minutes
it takes longer now,
before we see it wasn't worth the fight,
if i'd known then what i know now,
i wonder if i'd do
the same again
and hurt you then
as they've hurt me since,
to lose another friend.
Our heartThe human heart is an incredible thing,Our heart6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
It makes you stop and look around.
When it's broken you fear for your destiny.
Love is so indescribable.
For those who feel it, it really is a rarity.
Our hearts seem to control us,
We have no choice in who we fall for.
If we do... it's only a little.
When love hurts us, we act so very lifeless...
And our heart stays there burning.

You dyed your water a dark, almost bothersome, purple today; so that when the liquid slipped down your tongue and past your lungs and merged with your blood, you could be royalty. So royal as to feast on the rotted carcasses of dead animals, to breathe the dust and echo the screams of the clouds as they crash, and to gouge out every non-believers eyes and toss them away with the graceful wind; because it was your dream, and, like a vulture stalking a dying mouse as it walks at the toes of mountain tops, you followed it.
Youll be begging for a plague after the oceans have melted with the atmosphere
Your skin recoils around your silhouette and I can see those exposed stark bones- the same as the photos of the bones that you mailed to me.

Who I am InsideMy heart is screaming,Who I am Inside9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My hands are bleeding,
From the way I've been treated,
By so-called friends,
Who know no ends
of torture. FINE! I'll admit! I'm defeated!
I've been shoved from the group,
Kicked from the coop,
I feel there's no one left for me.
I want to cry everyday,
From the things that they say,
Maybe one day, they'll see…
That it's just who I am,
But no one understands,
Who I am inside.
And until they see
Inside of me,
From them, I will hide.
They don't accept what I like,
Like my favorite shows, or my favorite bike,
But they expect me to accept them.
So now, all I need
Is a person to see,
That what I need is a friend.

But one thing is clear
I am someone who will find this myself.
I am someone who does not need you to tell me.
I am someone who will listen to the one who cares.
I am someone who will defy the ones who do not seek to understand
I am a person who wants to be understood.
I am a person who makes mistakes

I am not perfect.
I am aware of this.
I am tired of reminders of trivial reminders of trivial things.
I am seeking so much more than that.
I am lost at times.
