Adults Can Fail YouWhen a problem's bigger than youAdults Can Fail You2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Take it to an adult they say
They'll know what to do
They'll help you
What happens when they don't?
I'll tell you
You find yourself in a dark and scary world
Respect your Elders
Turns to Respect those worth respecting
Adults can fail you
Leave you trapped in a house with a drunk monster
While they go out to eat
Laugh, never giving you a second thought
Only hours after promising to protect you
They came close
Oh so close to having a hand in my death
From that night
I spiraled down
My world shattered
My heart bleeding
I headed for the rocky bottom
No one reached out
No one tried to stop my fall
I hit the bottom full force
I lay there
I could end it all
No one would miss a broken 13 year old girl
The drunk provids easy access to mass amounts of alcohol
Plenty of pills to mix in lethal doses
Knives to slit my wrists
End it all
The End my way out
But I never did
I clawed my way back up
VisitingThere is a placeVisiting2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I will never go
But I seem
I close my eyes
It is a place
Where I can
Never ever go
But I always
Can create it
Because it lives
My open mind
Will you join
In this place
Where I can
Still not visit
I wish to see
You standing there
Next to me
Lost feelingsIt's crazy the way I felt for you,Lost feelings2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Crazy how I truly believed that I loved you right down to the core.
But now I see you, and something's not right, I've lost all feeling.
Thoughts of you don't seem to keep me up all night.
I told my self you have to be the one, all the moments we shared how ever small, they used to keep me dreaming that you were the prince I would meet at the fairytale ball.
But now know those feelings of wonder and love, have seemed to disappear to the heavens above.
And I feel remorse for those feelings I had, the ones that made my skin tingle and hair stand on end.
And those missed heart beats when you said my name, I truly fear that they shall not come again.
What's wrong with me? I thought I'd always feel that way.
But now I'm numb my life feels only grey.
Diamonds Don't BreakHe is the shard of an old life,Diamonds Don't Break2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And the edge of where broken,
Cuts the heart when held.
She is the dust of an old laughter,
And she glints and glitters
And gets into your eyes.
You did not drop them
Nor make them shatter,
Only accepted their goodbyes.
They are just mirrors in the distance,
Reflecting back a girl who broke away
Yet did not break.
On their glass you did not paint the cracks,
Only saw them and made your own.
Silence did not splinter them,
Now you’re just a girl they used to know.

A name less soulPlain and quiet, a girl with no name.A name less soul2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Who was dying on the inside, but showed no outer pain.
She wasn't like the rest, she could never be.
She felt unloved, she was never called pretty.
She tried to be what she hated the most,
So maybe someone would show her some love.
Forgotten, rejected, and on her own,
Loathed those who had cut her to the bone.
Each night her pillow was filled with tears,
Each day her shoulders carried all her fears.
Alone she sat, ridiculed by all,
Her heart was heavy, she felt so small.
Burnt out and broken, She couldn't take no more,
Lost with out feeling, her wounds were sore.
Until one day, the light did shine,
and on that day she did feel fine.
She stood up and found her voice,
her name, and with her life she had a choice.
And if you look, and you will see,
that plain, quiet girl, that would be me.
All alone.She sits in a felid, alone.All alone.2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She feels like no one cares,
She's all alone.
No one came looking for her,
But she no longer cared.
She's all alone.
She was running away,
Maybe to find some new friends.
She's all alone.
Her family is gone,
Her friend's are gone.
She's all alone.
She runs down the hill,
Only to fall.
She's all alone.
Everything is fading,
But everything is becoming clearer.
She's all alone.
She sees her family,
She sees her friend's.
She's not alone.
Longing LoveI'm listening to the sad love songs on the radio, and my heart whispering your name.Longing Love2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Trying hard to block you out, I stare out the window and watch the rain.
But oh! How I wish you were here, you could take away the pain.
Your soft lips would touch mine; your warm skin would surround mine.
And I'd be happy.
Snap out of the dream world, I have to command myself.
Thinking about you all this time could not be good for my health.
I've been so close and yet so far.
Those moments we shared, I know they were brief, but yet they replay as I try to sleep.
And I find myself smiling, no control do I have.
You've stole my heart, and weirdly I'm actually glad.

I live to do all of the above.
Your smile like honey, it fills my heart with joy,
Your beautiful tone as you speak, I don't interrupt, not a peep.
I bite my lips and try and hide but oh how you make me feel inside, there are just there are just no words that can describe.
I live to dream, I live to love and hope,
maybe we could elope?
I joke because you'll probably never know how I really feel,
and I know it take time for wounds to heal.
But let me be a cure.
I live to dream, I live to love.
Maybe some day it will be enough.

It's like I don't even have the key...
to your heart that is,
and its something that I miss.
The planets in the solar system solely align for you,
I wish it were that way for me too.
I don't deserve it like you do,
because well I'm a little bit coo coo.
Stars do fall like dust,
and that is a must...
When our hearts beat in sync,
it is the link...
To happiness which will last forever,
just like the meaning of a diamond and a tether.
I should fix myself though,
because otherwise we will surely bow.
I'd like to say that I am ready...
Can I please be your teddy?

Cloud Nine can't compare
To this feeling that you give me.
A rush blazing from within---everywhere.
The pleasantries, an all-consuming fire;
I can hardly breathe,
Yet, I relish every second of it.
What more do you have under your sleeve?
Just how will you captivate me next?
Your smile shakes me to my very core,
Your eyes feed me, as I beg for more.
The words you say, like a gentle breeze,
The way you get me, time seems to freeze.
You're a walking wonder,
A passage to paradise;
A sweet oasis,
You're out of sight.
O', and how suddenly you found me,
I'd let you find me again and again.

Save the PeopleSave the People4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Why does tragedy surround this world?
The whole world is suffering
No matter your religion
One thing from Jesus' teaching stands strong:
We are all brothers and sisters.
Let's reach out to our siblings
Go over and help them
Donate hope and love
Send them a smile
A little thing goes a long way
As in the ocean
The tiniest ripple
Grows into a big wave
With the help of the wind
The tears of the sky has dropped into the sea
The ripple has begun
So let us all be the wind
And let us nurture the love and compassion for our brethren
Let us help as we can
Help those who leave home to save those in pain
Love those who survived and are safe
Hope those who are missing return with breath in their lungs
Pray that those who have left this world are at peace
Do not take what you have for granted
Though it may be difficult to stand up
Be proud to say that you care
And let it show
And shine like the gentle moon
Illuminating the darkness of the night

So afraid in this world of violence will I die today

and to not trust any one.

A pool in Dubai
Or a weekend in Paris.
But you watch,
Someone will drown
Or choke on a baguette,
And I'll have to do some overtime.
No, I'm not a doctor,
These aren't healing hands,
Quite the opposite.
Do you know when you plan
To kick the bucket?
It's just I'd rather you made
I can pencil you in
At half past nine.
That's not too early for you is it?
No, you can't cancel.
But I assure you
A spring funeral
Is always lovely.

Ivan had just dropped you off at your class and left for his. English was one of the classes that you didn't have together. A girl came in and sat down beside you and smiled.
“Hey, did you just move here?”
“Yeah, two days ago.”
“Oh, I was out yesterday. I'm Lily by the way. What's your name?”

"Da?" He asked. You couldn't figure out his expression. You nodded.Swiftly he leaned forward and kissed you passionately. You froze from shock. Ivan pulled back and grinned.
"I like you too, da." He kissed you again and this time you wrapped your arms around his neck and kissed him back. You gasped when he pushed you roughly against the trunk of the tree and trailed kisses down your neck.
The next day Ivan took you to his house and up to his room.
"Your house is sooo biiiggggg." You said in aww. Ivan laughed.
"You like it da?" You nodded. You looked around his room when you noticed something painted on the ceiling. You sat on the bed and leaned back to see it better. It was a field of sunflowers. Ivan leaned over you and you loo

or an invitation -
they do not wait at the door
to be let in
or cross the threshold
with crossed fingers
and a prayer.
They do not wear their best clothes -
no poplin suits
or brocade skirts
to catch upon the lintels
or dust the marble floors.
They will not dine
upon your crusts
or marrow bones or salted eggs
nor steal the heavy coins
from out beneath the rugs .
They'll only tarry
in the hall
and make soft moan
amidst the wind
wondering why you turned
their faces to the wall
and put out
your best china.
