Remembering YouI remember your smile when you looked my way.
It gave me confidence every day.
I remember your laugh when it was free from care.
It rang out full and filled the air.
I remember your hands as they stroked my hair,
As you chased away my every fear.
I remember your face when I sleep at night,
And I ponder how to make your burdens light.
I remember your love wherever I go,
And I hope you know I love you so.

I'm Sorry that no matter how hard I try, I'll never be good enough
I'm sorry that I care so much. Maybe if I didn't I wouldn't be hurt so much
I'm sorry I'm not pretty
I'm sorry that I feel like a stranger in my own home
I'm sorry that I'm a screw up
Sometimes it feels like I get more love from strangers than I do the people who are supposed to care for me
I'm sorry I'm weird
I'm sorry I find comfort in childish things that I should have left behind long ago
I'm sorry I'm so quite but I feel like if I speak you will not understand and therefore bash me for it.
I'm sorry I'm the oddball in the family.
I'm sorry I can't be the person you want me to be. No matter how hard I try
But I still care
Once, I Loved a CowardPeople always say never to love a coward –Once, I Loved a Coward2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
They never show you that they care.
I fell in love with a coward.
This man was an awful man,
An awful man with a chain and lock guarding his heart, protecting it, holding it captive.
It was blinding his very eyes
For he never saw the true me.
Days went by – I remained alone.
Though…he was there;
He stood near me as the days went on,
But he was lifeless –
A being with no heart.
I asked him:
Remember the times we once had:
You and I?
Hardly air to divide us.
Women and men so hard tried to tear us apart,
Our love for each other
Spiking their envy.
Remember the nights we once had:
You and I?
Silence unheard of, we talked for hours.
Something in the way you whispered my name
Made me want to never desert you.
Remember the kisses I once gave:
To you alone?
How pure –
Oh, I can taste your beauty right now:

A little taste of poison.
It calls you.
Enjoy a taste of poison.
No one will even notice...
It's just a bit of poison.
They will hate you if you fail.
They are counting on your will.
They don't know.
They see a filthy habit.
It's just a bit of poison...
Remember why you stopped!
Just need a little dosage.

I'm a monsterWe all have little monsters in usI'm a monster2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
that whisper ugly words into our ears.
My soul is at war, it is a fight
between the human and the monster in me,
and I fear... that the monster will win.
The monster controls me...
it forces me to think the worst of others
and it tells me to isolate myself,
to protect myself from those evil humans.
The monster dictates my every move,
I must pretend that I am a human...
lest anyone think of me as a monster.
The human inside of me has long died
and the seemingly innocent person you see
is nothing but a disgusting monster
hiding in the body of another,
preying on the weaknesses -
the weaknesses of those frail humans
and feasting on their flaws.
I wanted to be human,
but I'm a monster.
And I hate myself for it.

So no one can hear me screaming
So I can bleed out my pain
So I don't have to hide the problems
And the wounds
I want to stay here alone
Fighting my inner demons
With no help
Nobody to feel my pain
Nobody to fight for me
I want you to leave me alone
So you won't get caugh
In my spiral of darkness
And self destruction
Please (don't) leave me alone...

How You Saved MeWhen no one else listened,How You Saved Me3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You let me cry to you,
When no one would talk to me,
Your words pulled me through.
When I lost all hope,
You found it for me,
When I couldn't take anymore,
You made me burden free.
When I felt hated,
You made me feel loved,
When I felt like a freak,
You knew how it felt to be shoved.
When I felt unwanted,
You made me feel important,
When I felt blotted out,
You would listen to me rant.
When I was on the brink of death,
You talked me down and pulled me through,
When I felt like I had no-one,
You made me realise that I have you.

Title of Piece: True Love?
Oh the good memories,
From such a long time ago.
Where ever you were,
That your heart,
Beat for me,
And me only.
I am here,
Not to say you are in my heart,
Not to smile sweetly,
Or twiddle my hair,
But to correct you on a small matter,
Because you are wrong,
You were wrong.
The heart goes on,
Once more you open the door,
And beckon me inside,
But, oh honey,
I have become wise to your ways.
No longer will i jump in the back seat,
And ride along in your arm,
My hair whipping in the breeze.
I told you i loved you,
And you told me the same,
And i was foolish enough to believe you.
I meant what i said,
I truly did.
I know that,
Even if i live to love again,
It will never be in the way,
I loved you.
You always said that this was our happy ever after ending,
This is our true love.
I am here,
To tell you,
You are and were wrong,
It wasn't true love,
True love doesn't have a happy ending,

this is the only time we can feel like kids again.
when we're together it's all-consuming;
we can't help but let loose and feel free.
and unlike anything describable through words,
only to be felt by experiencing it.
the bond we share is strong and unyielding,
holding us together to never let go again.
that when you promise me forver, you mean it.
that I love you. I won't make the same mistake again.

We lay her down upon the altar
With chains to hold her hands and feet.
She will not stir and she will not speak;
Our eyes she will not meet...
This girl was made for a single purpose
She is here to serve in death.
A simple container of blood and flesh
Soon to be robbed of breath.
Our hands bear the ancient markings
Scars we open with trembling hands.
For the scent of our blood shall awaken him;
The sleeping lord of our land...
With heads pressed to the dirty floor
We cower in fear at the Raven's cry.
For the bird shall serve as the master's herald;
And none would dare to meet his eye!
Cold and lifeless, red with blood,
He stands among us as an angel sanguine.
His wings are coated in coal-like feathers,
Black as a banshee's scream...
'Bring me the girl,' he whispers darkly
As we scurry quickly to meet his command.
He cups her chin with slender fingers,
And her life he does demand...
She gives it freely, offering her neck
And he bites it with

Like blood running around my shallow veins,
Reminding me of days we spent apart,
Of sad times without the soothe to my pains.
You're the breath-smuggling moon to my dull night,
The sharpened sword protecting my null dreams,
The everything to my nothing, that's right;
You make my heart (and jeans) burst at the seams.
But I know you don't see it, don't see you,
That you won't believe me when I tell truth;
You think that you're ugly, all alone too,
Yet those you'll never be and I am the proof.
So fuck what they say and just hear me out;
I love you way too much to be without.

In a cold world,
That has long denied the light.
As we walk alone at night.
As we dream of endless death,
As we choke away our breath.
Tormented by our dreams.
None shall hear our screams.
A taste that is sickly sweet...
Let me end,
For hope I shall not meet...

Believing In Soulmates
You are not an illusion
Nor are you a mere reflection
Though I can't explain what I'm feeling
I just know that you make me want to start believing
Dreaming inside of a fairytale
The reason to smile
Fantasizing within a dream
The reason to believe
Maybe those so-called miracles are truly real
And maybe love stories really have their sequels
Though it's near impossible to try and get rid of this doubt
But I know that I will eventually succeed, because you're here now
Just when I thought I was lost, you came around, then I realized I was found
You have to be the other side
The missing piece that fits just right
So let this love intertwine, as our eyes unite
Because our hearts have been in halves through out our lives
The calm after a loud silence
A long awaited balance
The lone star that glows in the darkness
A bright light to shine for the ages
The one and only warm fire on a world of ice
A longing peaceful paradise
I want you to know that

Here we are, sitting behind these screens of glass,
Reading lines of text, yet smiling, laughing and crying.
It's strange to think that I could have this much fun -
Considering that I've never met you before, but then again
Perhaps that's the reason why I don't have to pretend.
Some people might tell me, that what we have is just a fantasy,
I doubt I'll have the chance to actually see you in this life-time.
But even so, in the time that we've spent together - Well,
I feel as though I've connected with you, more than anyone else.
I feel as though I know you better, than those just a few feet away.
You might take this little confession as something silly,
Maybe you'll even forget about it as time passes,
But I for one could never forget about someone like you,
And so I'd like to dedicate this piece, to the beautiful you.

(I Gave) My Soul (To You)
I'm inadvertently lost in that smile of yours
And in each and every single word that you say
Sometimes I don't even know who I am anymore
As you lead me on a path that I'll never astray
I will keep following you
Because I want you
And every night I can't help but watch you sleep
Down from the countless flickering stars, I'm soaring
And every time I wish I could step into your dream
Through the calming dead of light, I'm falling
I will keep loving you
Because I fell hard for you
While you're slumbering, I put my ear to your welcoming chest
And I can't help but lose myself within the echoing sounds
Putting me into a trance, it's such a feeling I will never forget
For those cherished memories are found
I will forever remember you
Because I need you
I never dare to slip into unconsciousness
As I pretend to meld myself into your fantasies
Entering a world that leaves me feeling somewhat restless
But the thoughts an
