Dead, Inside and OutI scream, but nobody hearsDead, Inside and Out2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I cry, but nobody cares
I look, but I do not find
I try, but I do not die
I wake, but I never really sleep
I eat, but I never really taste
I long, but I never really know
I try to stay, but it is time to go
I slumber, but I do not wake
I crack, but I do not break
I gasp, but I do not breath
I swallow, but I do not sneeze
I am floating, through the pale air
I am moving, though I do not care
I am strangled with tears, yet I do not pout
I am dead, inside and out.

Give me a soft kiss
Stay with me till the end

Don't let my heart break
Let's learn from our mistakes

Your cherry colored lips
The roses that I have picked
And the sweetness that one day I'll kiss

you're slipping underneath, this
virulent smog masks a paper sky that

you're afraid because it's soaking in

the meaning of life never meant enough-
you were never hopeful.
there's a getaway map on the underside
of your pillow, and a lifetime of secrets
on the underside of your bones
you're a walking travesty:
your chest ticks, dull
your wrist beats, dying

don't entertain nightmares, but what if
no one could hear you scream?

The Stars that Seem to CollideThe soft crunch of gravel under your feetThe Stars that Seem to Collide1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Stepping to the rhythm, stepping to the beat
Others surround you, excitement rides on the breeze
Summer putting souls to rest, their stress turned into peace
Driving, climbing, walking through
Nothing else better to do
In this old town, then what we found
On the night when our stars fall down.
Everything thing in this clearing become silent
Whispers of anticipation suddenly compliant
And we all hold our breath; our hearts in our chests, roughly kicking
as the final minutes on the clock fall away, softly ticking.
We look to the skies
and I can never believe my eyes
as I sat on the concrete that night
When the Stars seemed to Collide
In brilliant bursts
And these new lights we made,
These beautiful embers flicker at first
But more are launched, a crusade
Just a flicker, a flash
and when these lights touch the night
the atmosphere holds steadfast
And these stars begin to ignite
Bang, Crash, Boom
They create a chorus of sound
Being HumanYou could be anybody.Being Human2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Everything has a right to live.
But it all is made of the beholder because it can't be made out of something else.
"People are funny toys for me.
I know how to rule them very well".
An ordinary writing for a fifteen-year-old with a spiky bracelet and black lipstick.
"I may be Another..."
"People are grey mass!"
"Vampires, werewolves, wizards, boom, boom, bobobobobooooooommmmmm..."
Being human is not in fashion now.
Of course, every thought creates a new world somewhere away.
The world has very own ideas, but we can't reveal them.
"What did I do that everyone treats me in such a way?!
I am too soft, I forgive everyone!
I must be stronger than them!"
Being stronger not obligatory means being stubborn and deaf.
Changing the world doesn't mean alien invasions or that.
See it yourself and forgive.
Forgiving is so simple and so hard.
But - simply do it.
It will mean you're a human.
Not a machine made for creating its twins.
"He wanted to be alive?! He didn't
As Echoes Drift OnwardsAs Echoes Drift OnwardsAs Echoes Drift Onwards3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The echo drifts onward,
Of tales unforgotten,
Or perhaps memories,
Discarded as blindly as faith,
For who could have seen,
That the man beneath the mask,
Could be so cold,
And callous to cast,
Away his cherished dreams,
Where do we wander,
Under the midnight moon,
When all roads lead to dust,
And where do we soar,
When all our skies are crowded,
With other lights burning far brighter than our own,
Do we seek to ever float so high
Or are we simply clutching
at the threads of fate
Hoping that just once
We are not the ones who cut the lines,
For the roads of destiny are a tightrope
And each unsteady aching step,
Is merely one after another,
On a path fraught with failure below,
Is this why we soar?
So that when we fall
We know the pain of loss
Is as hard and cold as the ground.
For no matter who or what slips away,
When all else has left,
We still have our dreams,
Our whispers among the stars,
That shine bright in our eyes
Till our light finally dims,

The tenderness that's herWith every word written, with every word spokenThe tenderness that's her2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I try my best to express myself, without it being broken
For what I feel is deep in my heart, is love that I want to be showing
Every day it develops, every day I feel more loving
Is the tenderness of passion, which I’ve never felt before
A feeling that I got from a girl who I truly adore
Beautiful as a rose and gentle as a peaceful dove
My heart gets filled with warmth, a feeling I describe as love
She’s the most beautiful girl I’ve seen, that’s as simple as I can be
So very cute and filled with joy, she’s the only girl who I want to see
Her adorable smile that always cheers me up, she’s the only one I need
She’s everything I ever wanted, I thank god that he gave her to me

I have never felt anything in my heart so deep
I'm so in love that I'll never be the same
I just want to be with you every single day
You have touched my heart in many different ways
And now from my heart you'll never go away
I feel so warm every time you're here,
I feel so cold whenever you disappear
Though it feels like you are already mine
Who knows if that's real, who know if it's a lie?
I just think about you every single time
Every time I write, and when I close my eyes
But I'm just waiting for that special day
For when you finally say, yes

I cry into my sheets
And cry into my bed
I cannot stop crying
And think of instead
Where else to go
To forget about you
I'm scared so deeply
That you've become a tattoo
You make me crazy
You make me insane
And almost always
You're my reason for pain
I can't escape you
You're always there
It's like you're watching me
But you really don't care
If I try to love you
You just run away
And if I try to help you
There isn't a way
No matter the cost
No matter the pain
No matter what I feel
It's always the same
This cycle of anguish
It won't ever end
And by the time dawn hits
It begins again
I scream at you now
And you're never there
It's come to the point
Where I'm pulling out my hair
And some nights I bleed
I don't know why
Please can't you help me!
I don't want to die!
These tears that I'm crying
They won't go away
Don't you love me?
If you do, won't you stay?
By the end of the night
I am fast asleep
But my dreams are nightmares
Which is why I weep
In the mist of my agony
And in this terrible

"What's going on?" AJ asked, an eyebrow rising in confusion. "Why are we going to Cain's? I thought you and Talen"
"I want to get him back," I interrupted, putting my hands to my temples and rubbing slowly. "I realized how much he meant to me when I left him."
"What were you doing for the past two weeks that kept you from calling or texting me? You could have at least told me you were okay!"
"Nothing," I laughed dryly and stared at my hands. "Literally."
"You don't know how worried I was. I'm serious."
I glanced over at AJ, his blue hair was disheveled and dark bags were under his eyes, making him look older than he really was by a few years. He looked like he hadn't slept in days.
"Why would you worry?"
"Because you're my best friend. I care about you, man."
I turned my head away, my eyes lowering and my cheeks turning a light shade of pink.

rivern: love isME AND SHAWN HAD BEEN friends since the first day of high school. It wasn't because we had a lot in common, but because we were different from everyone else. Even with the conformist school uniform we managed to stand out.

The other kids thought we were weird, freaks. Every day we would endure kids poking fun at the way we looked. People would trip us in the corridors and kick us when we were down. Kids would shout "emo!" or "cutter!" down the corridors after us too. And it didn't get any better either as we grew up, when most of the other bullying had stopped. In fact, for me and Shawn, it probably got worse.
Not everyone hated us though. There were the odd few who talked to us every now and then. So by the time we got to Year 11 and were studying for our GCSEs, we had a small group of friends.

I didn't want to be here anymore. I just felt like I should shrivel up and die; cease to exist. What was wrong with me? I hadn't left my room for days. Even my parents were beginning to worry, which meant that this was a pretty serious problem.
When was this torment going to end? I stared at my phone and just laid there, wrapped in my blanket, watching my blank screen that occasionally lit up and vibrated because of a concerned AJ. Every time AJ texted me though, it got my hopes up thinking it might be him. But I knew it was no use. He wasn't going to text me or call me. He didn't want me in his life anymore. I didn't blame him.
I licked my lips, the skin feeling cracked and chapped. My mother would always come in, offer me food but I wouldn't respond. I couldn't. My father would try to talk to me, even sit on the edge of the bed, rubbing my back as if he was a good father. I wouldn't answer.
If I wasn't staring at my phone, I would jus

I hesitated a moment before turning and running back into the house. AJ was already trying to push his way between the quarreling brothers.
"Cain!" The blue-haired teen screamed, his fist tightening around the man's shirt. "You need to calm down!"
Cain ignored AJ, pushing him aside to swing his fist toward Talen's face. Cain's sibling dodged it and retaliated with a right hook of his own but instead of his brother, Talen's knuckles struck AJ's face, the dark-eyed boy staggering backwards and lifting his hands to his eye. He whimpered for a moment before shaking off the pain and re-centering himself between the two, turning towards Cain.
"Cain, please stop!"
His hands wrapped around the man's waist as he burrowed his already bruised face into his slightly blood-stained shirt. Cain stilled, staring down at AJ, his eyes widening. Talen stumbled backwards, a wall catching him before he could lose his footing altogether as he lifted his arm, wipin
My Hidden RequiemI have locked away a requiemMy Hidden Requiem3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The melody flows through my veins
My little red drum thumps desperately
It can't escape musical chains
The haunting tune starts at my core
And slowly spreads like thick red blood
It paints everything the way I feel
Sometimes notes pour out like a flood
A chilling symphony plays deep inside
Behind veiled curtains of pitch black
I listen to it play in solitude
The chords will always pull me back
This hidden requiem is mine alone
I mourn each moment that slips away
An ethereal key hangs around my neck
To give to those who hear my heart play
Inside, the concert hall looks desolate
It's tattered beauty speaks much of me
Each song that plays feels so bittersweet
Someday I'll set this music free

Stopping a block away from my house, Talen put the car in park and stared out the windshield. I turned in the passenger's seat to stare at him one last time, his hazel eyes shifting to me as I smiled a bit.
"I don't want this night to end," I whispered, staring at my hands in my lap.
"Me neither," The black-haired man whispered, caressing my face in his hands. "But I had a really good time. I'm glad you like me back."
Talen leaned forward and let his fingers sift through my hair as his lips gently brushed mine, bringing me into a tender kiss. I closed my eyes and brought my hand up, tracing Talen's prominent jaw bone with my fingers as he moved closer, putting more pressure on our lips. He pulled away slowly, grinning slyly.
"W- What's with that face?" I stuttered, furrowing my eyebrows.
"Where did you learn to kiss like that?" He asked, leaning back and making my face burn with unease. "It seems like you've had practice before."
