Who are you?Who are you?
Do you know how to answer that?
I know I am me.
And nothing more.
Are you kind?
Are you brave?
Are you strong?
Are you noble?
Are you greedy?
Are you a coward?
Are you weak?
Are you selfish?
How do you answer to this?
To be claimed as one of these.
I have been called one.
But not all.
I may not be strong,
but I do what I can.
I may not be selfish,
but I can see the noble.
Can you answer me this?
This one small question.
That no one thinks of themselves,
yet they ask this many times.
Who are you.....
MedusaWhen you gaze upon yourself,Medusa2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
How can you not see,
The perfection and the beauty,
Standing in front of me?
You're bitter, torn and ugly,
Behind those hazel eyes,
And the more you hate yourself,
The more your heart dies.
Your thoughts are full of poison,
And kind words burn your tongue,
Look how sore and twisted you are,
For a woman who is so young.
You've turned your soul to stone,
And with no hero to save you,
You'll stay as brittle as bone.
You're blinded by your shame,
Unable to see passed the pain,
A mutilated cripple inside,
You bleed out like a severed vein.
You keep your feelings hidden,
Buried deep beneath your skin,
Like a sharp, mangled thorn,
Tearing you apart from within.
You'll never shed a tear,
And hide emotions with fearsome might,
When you sleep you're deeply haunted,
And your screams pierce the night.
You've turned your soul to stone,
And with no hero to save you,
You'll stay as brittle as bone.
Your lips are tattered and frayed,

that I know I am.
My feelings are twisted,
from being hurt so many times.
You must understand,
I'm not like everyone.
No one gets me like you,
yet you're still wandering the maze.
My heart is pure,
I'm loyal as they come.
I will never try to hurt you.
If I do, it wasn't in meaning.
I travel this living road,
waiting for someone to pull me off.
Your strong hands did just that,
now I fear you'll put me right back.
You must understand,
I'm still learning to breath.
Be patient with me,
and maybe I'll be perfect at last.
Run......Running....Run......2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
why am I running?
My bare feet are cut from.....
I am in pain,
but it's not from the cuts.
It radiates from my core.
Extending to my shoulders,
mimicking the weight of the world.
Making it harder everyday to run...
I run from the voices who tease me,
despite the fact I'm nicer than I should.
They mock my glass heart,
even though it has been broken for a long time.
I run hollow...
the icy wind burning through the empty hollow.
because I secretly can't stand them.
I want to run from everyone's colors.
Too many of them....
I ignored it for a long time.
Now it's too much for me.
despite my bloody, torn body.
I run from them all.
Without even taking a step.
No one writes love letters anymoreLetters written with reckless abandonNo one writes love letters anymore2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
ink on paper with irrevocable passion
Words and scented paper
in an envelope, in your hands.
a special surprise, meant for your eyes
Stained with tears and so much want
Forever to be treasured and fade with age
Torn up in heated moments, clasped in desperate times
This is no more
What is this?
Love is a notification
A ringtone, something that needs usernames
a password, but not breathed secretly on lips.
Love is a status
on your wall
Will they ''like'' it
retweet, bbm, direct message
This intense romance
Nothing will stop this love
except perhaps a bad internet connection
Can be disconnected with a rooter
What is the emoticon for undying love?
Our love is in the recycling bin.

and I want to save them all.
It's driving me crazy,
because I am tormented by them too.
I can not save them,
if I try, how would I start.
No land to give,
no money to lend,
we can barely make it by ourselves.
I'm not strong,
I'm not able to do it all.
I'm not pure enough,
because I still have my demons.
I want to be strong,
though I don't know how.
I want to be pure,
but I never will,
because I'm only human.
I hear the tears fall,
and I can do nothing but stand by and cry too.
I hate doing just that.
And yet, it's all I can do.
And I hate doing nothing but stand by.

Society's StyleThe curls and the lipstick,Society's Style1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The fancy shoes and clothes.
They hide all the feelings,
Anything she doesn’t want to show.
She cries in her bedroom,
then puts on her fake smile.
She covers all her sadness,
Behind society’s style.
She bottles up what she’s feeling,
and just wishes she could be,
anything and everything
the people around her expect her to be.
The Worst Bully You Can HaveThe worst bully you could have is yourself.The Worst Bully You Can Have2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You criticize every little thing you do wrong.
You judge what you wear and notice every flaw you have.
Looking in the mirror you hate how you are and what you have become.
You hate how you think and how stupid you can be.
You envy others for their looks and personality.
Looking into the mirror you can't look yourself in the eye.
What if other people can't look into their own eyes when looking in the mirror?
Have you ever taken the thought to think that person you envy, envy's you.
Do other people think their stupid and hate how they think?
Have other people looked into the mirror and hate how they are and what they have become.
What if other people notice every flaw they have and judge what they wear them self?
Have many people criticized every little thing they have done wrong.
Is the worst bully you can have yourself?

GoodbyeI wished I was a hero,Goodbye2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
where I could tell when I was needed,
so I could come and save the day,
or save the person who needed me.
Saying goodbye is hard,
even harder when you weren't there,
when you couldn't give them what they needed.
What could have stopped the Wheel of Fate?
How do you say goodbye?
When they are so far away?
When you feel so helpless?
How could you stop them from leaving?
The Wheel of Fate crushes us all,
But telling when that will be,
it impossible to tell.
Even when you see the Wheel,
you still don't know how to stop it.
Even if you manage to step away,
in the end you are still crushed.
I wish I could have stopped the Wheel,
said something that could have saved her,
I am nothing but a powerless human,
who couldn't even save a friend close the the beat.
So this is goodbye,
to the Wheel who stole her away,
my good friend,
who I could have saved if I knew.

Ode to a DonutOh, sweet brethren of joyOde to a Donut3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Oh, that which suffice
Whose scent does tantalize
And whose flavor is nice
Your sweet innocent gaze
Your silken touch
Invoke passion and fire
The thought of you enraptures
And makes my heart sing
May the goddess of sweetness
Lift you on feathered wing
The gossamer feel
Of your soft, glazy skin
Even the dullest of kin
Your existence itself
Is beauty divine
I shall adore thy glamour
'Til the ends of time
Oh heavenly, golden, airy caress
You are the object of my obsessiveness
No substance volatile
No fires of hell
Could describe the passion
That in me wells
The dreamy fantasies
That your essence implores
Would slake any soul's thirst
But still I want more
The chalice of desire
Can never be filled
To hold you forever
Is my eternal will
May my stomach be your stronghold
As long as I'm living
My one true love you'll be
PseudonymI don't know your namePseudonym2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But I know the pseudonyms that you hide behind
I don't know your voice
Yet I can hear every one of your words in my mind
We've never met before (physically)
But I feel that I can trust you; it's so absurd
We've never felt each other (physically)
Yet I know what you're feeling through your words
You exist to me in another world
We meet on a bridge as blurry silhouettes
We can never touch, never talk
Just doodle words in the sand like puppets
We understand each other
Without the necessities of society
We just exist on this bridge
As shadows with an air of curiosity

So no one else could hear..
"Sometimes you see right through me,
Like I am made of glass,
You see my rusted soul,
And my heart made of brass.
Can you see the wires,
Underneath my skin?
And can you see the nuts and bolts,
That holds everything in?
I'm slowly falling apart,
And there's nothing you can do,
I'm not a toy that can be mended,
With needles, thread or glue.
Don't try and fix me,
This is how it's always been,
You my boy are human,
And I am a machine."

Out of ControlI see something I happen to like,Out of Control2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I make a sound a person shouldn't make.
It's loud and disturbing,
it's just something normal people don't do.
I hear a song I know on the radio,
I sing along at the top of my lungs,
despite the fact I'm in a public space,
am I going crazy?
I'm on the laptop and I see something cute,
I make that odd sound and jerk my body around
as though I'm possessed.
Am I that strange?
Should I hide the odd things I do?
Should I put the same mask everyone wears?
Should I stay quiet and never speak out?
Should I act like everyone else?
I will never stop being strange,
I can't stop singing,
And I will never stop smiling at the cute things.
Why should I be like everyone else?
Why should I wear the mask?
Why can't I be me?
Why can't you be you?
Stop following others,
stop playing pretend,
no more masks,
no more sheep.
If you can't do it alone,
take my hand and I will help you.
You don't have to do as I do,
but do as you want to do.
The Me InsideI Scream an unheard scream inside when I see the others hold hands.The Me Inside1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Invisible tears stream when I see the others together.
My lonesome,broken heart shines a soft light,"Oh isn't it grand?"
My beautiful,breaking mask hides my true self. Will they see it? Never.
I don't think they know.
That when they kiss, it's a pain chipping away my shattered soul.
I don't think they ever will.
But,really, how could they have known?
My sad eyes are hidden.
Behind false truths I convey through my happy throat.
I can't let them see my pain that hides within.
So I continue, singing every happy note.
I pretend The One is there,
holding my hand like the others do.
But when I look beside me,
the empty spaces, to me, become painfully known.
I rest my aching heart,
Every once in a while,
With stories of love that can't fall apart,
and endings that leave me with a smile.
But it never lasts for long,
as I'm sure you've guessed by now.
The joy from those tales,
always seem to move on.

And all your pieces are scattered,
I know that you're bruised,
And your pale skin is battered.
I can see the scars,
That you're trying to hide,
And I can see the hurt,
Burried beneath your pride.
You're barely holding together,
Your tattered, fraying threads,
The harder you try to keep it in,
The more the hole spreads.
Stop trying to battle alone,
When I'm here with sword in hand,
I can help you pick up the pieces,
There'll be nothing we can't withstand.
Don't give up the fight,
My friend who is so fragile,
Take my hand and let me hold you,
Let me love you for a while.
You think that it's not worth it,
And just want to give in,
So you run the blade down your arm,
Breaking your heavenly skin.
I wish that I could show you,
How much you mean to me,
But you just push me away,
And wallow in your debris.
Why can't you see what I see?
I think that you're amazing,
I love your scars, and your wounds,
And your eyes that are always blazing.
I am giving you my all,

80. WordsFuu was never a girl of many words. Many would find her quieter than a mouse. After all, why should she waste her breath speaking to her peers? If she had anything to say, she said it in as few words as possible. The person she spoke to was left to decipher the one-to-two word phrases. That was how she was, and nobody dared to question her why.80. Words3 years ago in Romance More Like This
So when she walked up to the unsuspecting blond male, no one knew what to think.
She stared at the ground, her face almost as crimson as her eye. Her hand had a death grip on the opposite arm. A single word was muttered from her lips. “Date.”
Ven tilted his head quizzically. He gave a sheepish smile, laughing nervously. “I’m sorry,” he apologized. “Could you please repeat what you said? I couldn’t quite catch that.”
She shook her head, letting her hair cover her face. “Forget it,” she replied, running off, leaving the boy baffled.
A familiar hand rested on his shoulder.
