I'm weak. I'm a coward.
Dont tell me I'm wrong
I know I'm not.
I'm really not OK. I cant pretend

I Hate YouThis is to youI Hate You5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I hate you
I hate you so much
All you do is shout
All you do is scream
All you do is put me down
You've never sincerely told me I did well
You've never been proud of me
You've never smiled at me
You always think of me as a disgrace
You always think I'm some embarassment you can hide
You always assume I can't do this and that
I hate you, dad
I hate you and you should know it
I hate you because you just don't get it
I hate you because you just don't care
It's the way you always tell me I'm stupid
It's the way you always expect me to be perfect
It's the way you always yell at mom
It's the way you always put yourself above her
It's the way you critique every person I meet
It's the way you never let me have a life
I hate you, dad
And it's because you're unfair
It's because you're the police
It's because you're the judge too
And it's because you're also the prison
I'm stuck here, dad
And I hate it
I wake up
And I just want to crawl out of my skin
I just want to die and nev

Tried oh so hard to smile.
But every day, was pushed away
By those who would not listen.
I watched my conscience dieThere are things you mustn't do, I've always been told. Things that will hurt not only you, but others as well. So no matter how much I wanted, I chose to not, because I mustn't.I watched my conscience die6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The want did not go away.
The want got stronger every day.
The want began to slowly turn my "mustn't"s into "shouldn't"s,
then my "shouldn't"s into "couldn't"s,
then my "couldn't"s into "could"s,
then my "could"s into "should"s,
then, at long last, my "should"s into "must"s.
Knowing that what I do will hurt, maybe not now, but later and forever, no longer mattered.
I turned my "must" into a "did"
And with that last gasp, I watched my conscience die.
Now, and forever, I am free.

You think it's so funny to insult me
Just wait until the tables are turned
You won't try to "protect" me, I'll be free
And I won't have to listen to your arrogant lectures anymore
I hate it when you are near
Not taking anything seriously
You sicken me with every tear
Your twisted, split personality is my phobia
Why talk? When it's obvious I'm not listening
When you try to joke around
Not noticing the teardrop in my eye, glistening
At the point of wishing to be deaf, to block out your voice
Stop shouting at me, I'm just going to ignore you
I despise everything that you are
All that I'm saying, is true
So, why can't you realise that I'm no longer your little princess?
There is no point in treating me bad
Since I'm already used to it. It won't affect me
I hate you, dad
So just shut up and leave me alone

I cried myself to sleep
Not bearing to live another day
All I could see in the mirror
Was a girl filled with tears
Happiness had exist
I missed those days
Now my life ends here.

SociopathKath - 4.7.12Sociopath3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
the violin speaks for you
in the still night hours, the wisp
of horsehair on careful strings, soft
wood oiled by long, pale fingers
you are skeletal,
in every way imaginable, every inch
of skin whitened marble, each vertebrae
stark in shadows and bone, bluish vein
cartography of neglected sustenance, structure
of your face gaunt
and highbred, eyes
crystal distilled, you look and dismantle, take apart
with long, fine fingers and clipped nails,
reverent on my skin as you peel it back,
infinite layers and patience and breath and
this dance that we dance
in wet alleys and lamp
light playing across the prominent ridge of your cheek I
want to tell you that you're beautiful
and dangerous and sweet
the way you are so confused
at the world and the organ that keeps you alive
and the way your body needs nourishment
at the way you let no one touch you
but me, the way your love took even you

It covers and conceals
Giving false security
Hiding and fearful
Trying to calm your breathing
Darkness veils what you don't want to face
Darkness makes you think you're safe
It exposes and cleans
Finds fault and repairs
Redeemed and alive
Run and breathe in pure air
Light makes beauty out of rain
Light can help me through the pain

So sad, so many in despair,
So far down,
So past help,
So far, no one to help.
So let me be there,
So let me help,
Sew your soul together
So you remain alive,
So many happy, aren't you glad?

For are you among the ones that point
Their bony fingers and laugh!
Laugh at my inquiring ponders I have
Long thought upon, and confirmed their
Will you call me mad?
Only because I seclude myself from those
How I dare I even speak of them in the Holy
Sanctity of this place!
Now, if what I perceive is to
Be in fact quite the most valid of statements,
Then my inquires you may not hear!
No, for such genius will not bear
Anymore disgrace from those
Who lack my kind of qualities!
For you are not worthy of my wisdom,
Nor being included in my presence!
I beg of you in the most kind of manners,
Do not exclude me from your distant thoughts,
And know that once you have come to appreciate
What my mind has concocted up,
You may return to wallow in the rich vastness
Of the pureness I attempt to
Behold before you!
