Write It On The Earth, Draw It In The SkyFor those who keep pencils in their hairWrite It On The Earth, Draw It In The Sky2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
And markers in their pockets
Keep notebook paper tucked into your socks
And whose arms are covered in writing
With words to tantalizing to forget
To those who make music when no one is listening
To those who shine on stage when no one is watching
To the late-night-gotta-write-that-down-Hold on one-minute mom I'm writing!
And the people who graffiti poetry
I write this for you
To the hopeless romantics
And unrequited lovers
And the early morning daydreamers
And math class doodlers
And artists beyond help
I write this for you
Don't wait till morning
I'll wait till morning I'll write it down then
Find a napkin
Find a piece of chalk
Write it on the earth
Draw it in the sky.
Hold my hand at the RuinsI've built impenetrable wallsHold my hand at the Ruins2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Walls that can never be cracked
You broke through every one of them
You smashed your way through
Not caring about the wounds
Not seeing the damage
You only saw me
The absolute unwillingness to live
And you walked a million miles through a foreign land
Just to stand next to me
And hold my hand and stand next to the ruins
That you created

Love of a ThornI only like you when you're not around.Love of a Thorn2 years ago in Drama More Like This
I only like you when we're apart.
When you're only a version of yourself in my mind.
In the hours and the days and the months
we spent together.
Incessantly by each other's side.
All that time, that one whole year I'll never get back.
Oh how I hated everything that you put me through.
Selfish and whiny and immature, you thought I loved you.
In truth, I pitied you.
That's the only reason I stuck by you.
Because being your lover made me SO MUCH BETTER
in other people's eyes.
Because being your friend made me feel like I was
a much better person than who I really am.
Noone else wanted to take care of you and offer you
endless support and understanding.
Noone else wanted to banish all your insecurities
I PITIED you.
It was pathetic. The way you clung to me.
Calling me your world,

I saw her sweep across the stage
She swayed her hips
She danced like love
She moved like a poem
She drifted through the crowd
Smiling like a sphinx
Lips pulled lazily over her teeth
A seductive, mysterious, languid smile
She beckons you closer
With that same
You cannot help but be caught in her web
And as you walk towards her you think
Why did I make it so hard for her to trap me?
NightmaresI don't want to fall asleepNightmares2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I can't bare to close my eyes
I can't stand what's inside my head
Be it made of truth or lies
'Cause when I fall asleep
The nightmares take place
The worst things I can imagine
Scarier than any screaming face
In my dreams
I see you there
But you're hurting me on purpose
And you don't seem to care
I see you with other girls
And you look so happy
And I'm stood there screaming
Telling you it should be me
But you're not listening
You're too busy having fun
I can't get away from what I'm seeing
No matter how much I try to run
I'm seeing you with girlfriends
I've never even heard of
Telling them they're beautiful
As I start to sob
Then I wake up in the dark
And I'm lying here alone
With no one here to comfort me
Just me on my own
You may think the worst part is over
But it's only just begun
'Cause when I go back to sleep
I know I'll have another one
Nightmares that leave me crying
When I wake up in bed
Wishing every night
That they would stay out my head
But I kno

What more do you want from me?
Can't you see I'm trying my hardest?
I'm trying to make something of myself.
I know nothing is promised and I may not be the fastest.
I know my attempts have not resulted in any form of wealth.
What more can I do to prove to you that this is what I want?
I can see you are finding it difficult to get past this.
You think there is more I can do to help myself.
You can see that I'm struggling; I never tried to mask this.
I want you to understand that this is something I must do for myself.
But all that I will ask for you is,
I hope that one day you will believe in me.
Believe in everything that I am trying to accomplish.
You don't have to necessarily agree with me.
But I promise that one day both you and the world will be astonished.
And on that day hopefully you will be able to see the drive in me.
Hopefully you will be able to see the fight in me.
Hopefully you will see the person that I am trying to be...come.
And all I will want you to say is
