Stuck in my MindI have to say sorry to your face,
My mind just seems to want to wander,
So I'm not sure what you are saying.
I'm stuck in my mind,
Lost in my dreams,
Controlling the world around me,
With a scatter of impulses.
I have to apologise,
I don't know what's come over me,
I seem to be so lost,
I can't escape.
My mind reels through the memories,
The insanity of the world,
I come up with ideas that I can't express.
I'm stuck in my mind,
Lost in my dreams,
Imprisoned in my creative cloud,
Unable to tell you what I'm thinking.
Is this Farewell Friend?Falling away,Is this Farewell Friend?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We no longer talk,
I miss those conversations,
The things I learned.
Is this going to be farewell then friend?
I feel so distant.
It always ends like this,
Another person gone,
I know it's probably me,
Walking away from it all,
Too scared to say anything.
So is this farewell friend?
I really don't want it to be.
Too many people have gone already,
I know it is part of life.
So I will say goodbye,
In anticipation of the worst.
But thank you for the inspiration,
Although it's hardly any consolation.
Empire of DirtLook at what I have become.Empire of Dirt4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have lost my empire,
I am left with only paranoia,
The thing that really matters,
If one does not have imagination,
Could one be classed as human?
It runs through us all,
Even just the smallest glimmer of it.
My crown was stolen,
My mind destroyed,
My heart in tatters,
But still functioning.
I must get my empire back,
Even though it is made only of dirt.
So sleep now my enemy,
Soon I shall have my empire back!
Poison NightmareI promise you,Poison Nightmare3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I will only hurt you,
No good can come out of being with me.
I am pain in its purest form,
I have been built to destroy.
Do not trust my lies,
Do not come any closer.
I can look into your eyes,
And you will see the truth in mine,
When I tell you that I will let you fall.
I cannot love,
I cannot feel empathy,
I can only harm.
I am the darkness,
I am your poison nightmare.
IntrovertShy away from the noise.Introvert3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Try to escape the thing you dread.
Pretend they are just in your head.
Can't push it down.
Can't overcome it.
But the reason is unknown.
Hide from the conversations.
Push everyone away.
No reason to.
Just stand there
Wanting to contribute.
But something always stops it.
So there is just silence.
Forgetting to RememberI'm sorry if I forget your name.Forgetting to Remember4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My mind is such a flux,
I can't quite remember the things I should.
I may not remember something you have said,
But you must be patient,
My brain is so cracked and broken.
Tell me one more time,
What does this word mean?
Such a ditzy head I have atop my shoulders.
I constantly forget what I am doing,
Or what I am saying.
I forget that I have written something down,
So doing that doesn't help.
I may just blank you,
But don't think I'm ignorant,
I just couldn't quite comprehend.
My mind is discombobulated so easily.
I wish it weren't so,
But this is the way it must be.
So I'm sorry but
Can you tell me your name again?
Created WorldsAs I gaze upon this world that I created,Created Worlds3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I can't help but wonder,
Is this it?
Do I have everything?
This perfect world that no one else can see,
This world that's all a lie,
Filled with dragons and magick,
With super humans and impossible forms of travel.
All trapped in the snow globe that is my mind,
Or it's more of an etch-a-sketch
One simple shake and it's all gone,
Everything I created.
My Story of FallingThey caught me off guard,My Story of Falling3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My façade was down,
There was nothing I could say,
That would change what they thought.
They knew now,
They knew how I felt,
It was plastered on my face,
Mixed with pure insanity.
It all happened so quickly,
They sent me away,
Hoping I might change,
But they knew,
They knew I wouldn't,
It was too late,
I had already lost it,
So I became one of them,
The people I once despised,
I joined them,
I watched as we drained the colour,
Turning everything to our perfection.
I saw more people changed,
Their eyes so dull,
So this is me now,
One of them.
This is my story,
This is how I fell.

Balancing ActBalancing on a rope,Balancing Act4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Arms spread out
And eyes tightly shut.
I daren't look,
Everything around me is something to be feared.
I remember seeing the giant abyss,
That was before I stepped on here,
I opened my eyes a few metres back,
And I could see the creatures that swam in the dark.
All around me there is only darkness,
Only my little bubble gives me any light,
So the creatures are close,
And they scare me more than the fall.
I must keep moving,
Even though my legs are tired,
No time to rest,
I must move on.
I dare to open my eyes once more,
I can see a milestone in the distance,
A place to rest
And recover some strength.
I ignore the sounds of the creatures around,
As I push on toward that small patch of land,
That there I'll be safe,
With the ones I care for.
Until I must walk again.
On this thin, dangerous wire.
Lost...AgainI just don't know again,Lost...Again3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I don't know where I am,
Where I'm going.
I find myself lost,
Lost amongst the flowers
And the memories.
It's as if nothing ever changed,
Back there again.
Pick up my mask again,
And dance for everyone,
Just like I used to.
Spinning until I'm in a dizzy bliss,
But it's all false,
And I now that when I'm alone,
I will have to face it.
I'm lost again,
Lost and surrounded
Too many people,
I just want them to leave.
But I just keep going,
Putting on a smile for them.
I'm happy if you're happy.
Just keep saying that,
And I will eventually believe it.
But I will still be lost again.

Your radiance comparing to even the sun.
We'll dawdle quickly through liquid air.
And I'll show you the stars that swim silently through space.

In our perfect sky city.
Walking in CirclesI keep walking,Walking in Circles3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But finding myself back where I started,
I'm going around in circles,
Unable to break the loop.
I sometimes wonder,
Is it because I feel everything's going too fast?
So I walk around and around,
To avoid moving on.
It's all so new,
I know I will have to go eventually,
I will have to move on from this circle I walk,
But will I just find a new place to circle?
All the people I have come to know,
All the people I trust,
I must one day leave them,
Otherwise I cannot live.
But will I just latch on to someone else,
And hope I can stay there forever?
It's all so much,
I can't take it all in.
My heart pounds,
My hands shake,
And I think to myself,
Can I do any of this yet?
And I think about the people it will hurt,
But I guess I have to leave someday,
We all must move on.
Will I be ready I another year?
Only time can tell,
Only patience can help.
There's Always SomethingWatch as the sun rises above the Earth,There's Always Something4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Setting the whole world alight.
See the rain fall lightly,
And the sun reflect off the tiny droplets,
Creating an amazing sight.
Watch as radiation from the sun slingshots the Earth's atmosphere,
Lighting it up with an aurora.
Missed by so many.
Tell me now,
That there is absolutely nothing on this Earth
That makes you speechless.
Nothing that makes you stop and wonder.
Nothing that you don't want to keep hold of forever.
I bet you can't.
All's Fair in Love and WarLying through your teeth to yourself,All's Fair in Love and War4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Trying to convince your mind that it's right.
"But I did it for the better."
Is your argument.
But you know it's not true,
You continue to lie,
"I needed to lie,
It's the only way they would listen,
The only way I could be accepted."
Don't try to fool yourself,
You lied because you could,
Simple as that.
We all do it.
We don't need a reason at the time,
But we regret it afterwards,
And try to make up a futile excuse.
You can lie to others,
But you can never lie to yourself.

July LionI watch carefully as a lion walks by,July Lion4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And I think to myself "This can't be right."
For it can't be normal to see a lion here in July.
It's not normal to see a lion here at all,
But surely if there were a lion
It would appear in fall.
I don't know much about lions,
But I'm certain that one should not be here.
Other people watch just like me,
They must be thinking the same as I,
As they see this lion walking with glee.
And they possibly wonder if they are high.

Is the only thing left alive.
The land ravaged by war.
But life always continues.
The flower glimmers in the moonlight,
Against the black and white backdrop of the ground.
Its sapphire blue petals radiating a bright light.
Beauty amongst devastation.
Order in a field of chaos.
A single gem in a pile of coal.
You who hath set eyes upon this flower,
Shall forever know the beauty of this world.
Turn not away from the radiance of it,
But embrace its strength.

Still wet from early morning dew
And touched by majestic sun beam
Oh how beautiful today you are
In this mesmerizing blue ball dress
So fitting for your thin body
As the morning sun is still young
The lovely aroma your body has
So sweet and always calling me
Staying fresh even in my dreams
And the words you gently whisper
As the wind silently passes by
Ones I will never truly understand
You won a place inside my head
As a young and nimble beauty
My little blue, blue flower
SufferingI'm the high school girl who sits alone at lunch.Suffering4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I'm the boy who's teased for not taking a punch.
I'm the nerd who's only friends are her books.
Because the words they say about her stick like hooks.
I'm the homeless old man who ignores the peoples glares.
I'm the little boy who cries because he thinks nobody cares.
I'm the freak who tries so hard to act like she can blend.
But she knows she'll never really be accepted in the end.
I'm the orphan boy who is left week after week.
I'm the girl who's so depressed that she chooses not to speak.
I'm the grad student who's life has been so rough.
Yet he's finding that still his earnings aren't enough.
I'm the girl who sobs in her closet every night.
I'm the girl who's too tired to put up a decent fight.
I'm the guy who thinks that he should end his life,
So his parents have a chance to get over all their strife.
I'm the mom who wonders if her kids are doing fine.
I'm the man who competes because his job is on the line.
I'm the thirteen year

trying to get away,
trying to ignore what they do,
forget about what they say.
No move I ever make,
can ever be one right,
every simple thing I say,
always starts a fight.
I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
the way I'm supposed to be,
the thing is your slowly killing me,
why can't you see?
I'd really like to run away,
where someone would understand,
to someone who could see my pain,
and gently take my hand.
Valentine'sYou laugh and I love you,Valentine's3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You smile and I love you.
You can cry and I’ll love you,
You can scream and I’ll love you.
You talk and my mind goes blank,
You talk and I feel happy.
Your words make my heart flutter,
They are like a million fireflies lighting me up.
Looking at you makes me lose my breath,
And all I can do is sit there like a dummy.
And when my brain starts to work again,
All I can say is…
“Hey Cass…I love you.”
But the things I want to say swirl out of order around my head,
So then I say something silly,
Like start talking about muffins…
My confidence escapes me.
But maybe I’ve said all I need to,
Not the ‘muffins’ part,
I mean the ‘I love you’ part.
You can make me laugh so easily,
Your smile makes me smile.
I just think of you and I feel happy,
You are amazing.
So because I haven’t said it enough,
I love you.
Happy muffin’s day my love!
I mean Valentine’s Day!
