ThoughtsI thought I could call you a best friend,
I thought that in the worst of times,
you'd be there for me.
I thought I could tell you my deppest
of secrets,with no worries of anybody
That I could cry on your shoulder
when I needed,
That you would always give me hand,
That in the darkest of times,
you would light the way to
That laughter made our bond stronger,
That death was our only seperation.
I thought that when everyone abandoned me,
you would be next to me.
I was abandoned and you were not next to me,
I thought wrong of you,
None of my thoughts came true.
But then again my thoughts never
Where It Does Not ShineA parting glance in the room,Where It Does Not Shine2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
A flirtation down the hall,
A smirk dancing on lush lips,
A pair of wandering eyes align.
Unheard whispers ready to bloom,
Breaths lost in forbidden fall,
Sentences trailing down hips,
Hands seeking desire's sign.
Unless you can meet me
where it does not shine,
I doubt I will be thine.

they'll hope that cabs struggle spotting you so you settle in letting them take you home.
you're going to be prowling through their head all day.
you're going to make them scramble.
wherever you are is where they are going to rather be.
they're going to have you in their arms and they're going to feel right.
only to you will apologizing feel natural.
you're going to be their motivation and their assurance.
they're not going to know what to say or how to say it. but they will.
your smile will grab hold of them by the collar.
your eyes will pierce into theirs and there they will fall.
i almost feel sorry for them.
A Writer's PurgatoryOnly sounds came out of the locked room at the end of the corridor -A Writer's Purgatory2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Those of pen gliding across paper.
Inside, darkness, with the exception of a small, bleak desk light,
The writer leaned forward,
Putting everything down with mad haste.
Around him, the skeletons of his past laid, spread across the room -
Giving him inspiration while filling him with fear and madness.
At times he swore he could hear them speak,
After all, whenever he turned around, they were starring at him with a big smile on face.
Oh, how he had grown to enjoy that eeriness -
Smiling right on back.
Sometimes even starring at them for hours on end.
Telling them how he truly felt.
Of course, they willingly listened to his glorious speech filled with regret.
Never judging, staying silent until the end.
The graveyard silence was one of those gifts he could never receive any place, but in this room.
A solitude which was eternal and melancholic.
Melancholy that's exactly why he enjoyed it.
It had become somethin
Missing Pieces.I am a missing piece. Something that someone needs.Missing Pieces.2 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
But at the same time, I feel so incomplete.
I’ve wandered way too far, wondered for far too long
Am I a missing piece? Or a piece that won’t belong?
Is it possible I’m damaged and not missing at all?
That I’m just as dysfunctional as everybody else?
Pretending to be perfect never softened a single fall.
But neither did admitting that you’re broken and flawed.
A broken missing piece. Is that all I’m meant to be?
There is no master plan that includes the likes of me.
Being all alone, it’s a hurt that will not cease.
A hundred thousand years from now
I’ll still be
What is love?Love is undefinableWhat is love?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But you know when it's there
It's a felling in your heart
A feeling in the air
Love overrides all over feelings
And holds you in its grip
You don't want to lose it
And fall into a dark pit
Love is what you get
When you see that special person
And hold them close in your arms
Until the change of season
Love isn't something that comes lightly
It doesn't just appear
It only arrives when you meet that 'one'
And truly hold them dear
Love can take effect
No matter how far apart
The two of you may be far
But it's all in your heart
I would've been.I would've been a masterpiece if it wasn't for the tear,I would've been.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I don't know why I tell you this, it's not like you care.
I would've been a legend if it wasn't for the time,
Age of heroes has come and gone, all I can do now is rhyme.
I would've made something of myself, if I'd had the motivation,
But now, I just lie in wait, awaiting even more degradation.
I could've been someone, or something, I know I could,
But right now, it's all talk, all "Could, should, would."
Then there's that "if" or that "but" getting in the way,
I could've been a masterpiece, but here I am, rotting away.
No one even gives me a second glance,
I'm not a famous one like Rembrandt's.
I could've been a masterpiece if it wasn't for the tear,
If only the people looking after me had taken more care,
I could've been perfect, and remembered forever,
But now I am just a portrait, of the Forgotten Reaper.
A Writer's Romance-"You're a writer, aren't you?"A Writer's Romance2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Those were the first words she spoke to me.
At the time, I was packing up, getting ready to leave the library.
I had another long day, spending the majority of my free time at the library, loitering around on my laptop,
Staring at my open wordpad as I contemplated about what to write about.
Just as I was readying to leave this girl, out of nowhere, asks me if I'm a writer.
-"I like to think I am."-
That's the only answer I could give her.
I had taken up writing as a hobby,
But no matter how hard I tried, all of my work felt underwhelming.
Could I get you to help me write a poem?
If that is too much trouble than anything else will do too."-
She starred at me with her big blue eyes,
Long golden hair,
Holding her hands together at her chest -
She was quite pretty at that,
Making me question why such a person would come up a complete stranger such as myself, and ask for something so absurd.
-"Why do you need something like that?"-
All I DidDays.All I Did3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So many have gone by
And I've never stopped.
There were times when I was angry,
Days where I would be upset,
But I never stopped,
Not that I could.
Perhaps you knew you could get away with it,
A free slave,
A desperate soul.
Yet I never stopped.
I served you hand and foot
While you ripped me apart
From the inside out.
Like a dog.
And I never left.
Because of you
I'm incapable of love,
My emotions crippled,
Desensitized from what you did to me.
You turned me into a monster.
All I did for you,
And all I'll still do.
I never stopped,
All I did
Was love you.

and you...In yourself,
Perfect...I never knew such a thing...
And there you was, staring right at me.
Your eyes always told me what you couldn't say,
That you were mine and wished you could stay,
Your lips taught me everything,
But how to live without you.
And every night I dream of you,
You approach me and say what you couldn't,
Your lips touch mine,
Making me yours.
And I wake up, dressed In darkness,
Think of you dressed in yourself,
A beauty so true,
Not one has compared to you.
Every night I dream of you,
I tell you what I couldn't,
I adore you,I want you to stay,
To be able to hold you and take you away.
And I wake up, dressed In darkness,
Think of you dressed In yourself,
A beauty so true,
Not one has compared to you.
And every night I dream of you,
Wake up In depression from the lack of you,
And wonder If I had said,what I never said,
That I wanted you too.
And maybe If I had said...what I never said...
Would there be beauty In my arms when I wa

Listen to me
Don't walk away
I'm not finished
If only you'd hear me
If only I could make you see
Why won't you listen

It's your job
Why can't you just listen
Maybe you can't hear me

it's a realm of privacy, but restlessness
I fade away from the world of action
and into this slow, transparent feeling
the bridge between my thoughts and my actions
the longer I stay.
It makes me itchy.
I itch for something to focus on
but my brain feels like a piece of tape
that's already been stuck to too many things
and falls off of everything I encounter.
I itch for somewhere to go
something new to do,
but everything that doesn't require crossing that ever-expanding bridge
has already been done,
already been explored.
I keep fading,
remembering that I used to have goals I could work on,
but where'd they go?
They're across the bridge too; I can see their silhouettes
but I can't quite make them out.
They mock me.
They dance and sparkle in the light of that lively realm; some yell at me
for standing them up,
their words contorting over the shadowy chasm between us,
turning into whispers of hypocrite

My feet wear the same tracks into the dirt,
kicking up the same dust every day
but the worst part is that the dust cloud blinds me to other, newer paths.
The most appealing option is to run
c'est l'option la plus dangereuse,
but that's its allure.
My whole being screams for something different,
something borderline uncomfortable,
like the feeling of too much space I get from places with no trees,
but I limit myself.
My brain won't stretch to envelop the possibilities
that float just out of its reach
like it used to.
I'd like to blame it on public school, and I somewhat can, I think-
but in the end, I have control over what I do with my brain
and I didn't stretch it.
I am a brain neglecter,
a fear collector,
a cage erector
who locks herself in
then complains about her captivity.
I used to think I was special,
that right now didn't matter,
that ONE DAY I'd be something, do something speci

Were no doubt there
And you shared them with me
Thank God, I swear.
But not too long later,
As I think over,
I slowly lose the emotion.
I don’t know what to tell you,
I surely don’t know how!
It was never a one night stand,
We still haven’t held hands,
And my lips are still a virgin to others.
Though I know how this goes
Yet I don’t I don’t remember
How to let you know
I want us to be over.
So soon it happened

to read your every thought like a novel in real time
to know what you really think of me
i crave the feeling of understanding your despondencies
and knowing the stem of your insecurities
as well as your discretion
i want to melt when i touch you
and creep through your skin
and occupy every crevice of your mind
until i am the only thing you think about
i long to be the marrow in your bones that keeps you from falling apart
or to be your spine
to always support you and keep you from collapsing
but still send shivers running through you
i wish to see the way you see
to appreciate the little things
to dream in the same shades of violet as you
and add to them a deep passionate red
i want to awaken your most precious memories
and relive the glory days with you
and somehow insert myself into the banks of your brain
and occupy the empty space forever
in short i want to know what it is that draws you to me
so that i may never let this quality withdraw

Retreating Forward[Retreating Forward]Retreating Forward2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The boy, he sits, on his bed alone
A heavy burdened tear drips from his eye,
It streaks down his face, sealing his lips,
The only question he wants to ask is, Why?
Countless bruises cover his tattered, torn skin,
But the worst of them all are the bruises within,
Bludgeoned inside, He holds himself tight,
Because he knows that no one else will, tonight,
And alone he remains, questioning his existence,
Silence he sustains, the path of least resistance,
He tears at his scabs, digging for the truth,
Searching for answers in his diminishing youth,
His shell is broken, beaten, discarded,
His mind creates comfort, inside now guarded,
He picks himself up, and stands on his own,
Oblivious to conversion, no longer alone,
His wounds heal with time, focused is his mind,
Settled, resolved, his confidence redesigned,
He walks to the door, extinguishing fear,
Entering only to escape, the answers, now clear.

How it stands still when times are so wrong.
Ever noticed how a minute can go so fast?
In good times when you wish they would last.
Ever notice how dark the skies can really be?
On those nights when your feeling a little lonely.
Ever notice how bright the skies can seem?
When your not afraid to let yourself dream.
Ever notice how love can break your heart?
Moving in completely and ripping it apart.
Ever notice how love can also set you free?
Opening your eyes so you can see eternity.
Ever notice how time can stand still?
Haunting your mind and weakening your will.
Ever notice how time can pass right by?
Taking precious moments in a blink of an eye.
Ever notice how life can be so unfair?
Leaving pain and sorrows without even a care.
Ever notice how life can be so sweet?
Pieces coming together making us so complete.
Ever notice when you love someone to much?
Closer you try to get the further your out of touch.

Every single place
The troubles seem to grow
Every smiling face
Eventually frowns with woe
Why can't I do
I just screw
Up everything despite
The happiness I try to spew
Is it me
Am I the source of this ache
Does the pain flow free
Is this what I make
Should I go away and hide
Never to see others
Or the outside
But would I stop another's
Pain and be the only one that ever cried
What is a life with no grey
When everyone is sad
I'd give it all away
It wouldn't be that bad
I would finally be able to say
I saved a life

Strong, Clear photographs will not only help you stand out on a web-page, but also will help you get your blog out there, or get your deviantART profile a bit more notice. Having a good working environment is often better than having that top notch expensive camera. So don't worry too much about your equipment. Get to know your angles, backdrops, props and lighting and the rest should hopefully fall into place.
