I do this...well...when it is needed.
I haven't written in so long
Yet tonight it is needed
For my emotions have been drawn
Like a fountain they pour
All that is inside of me
Silent words never spoken
The tears that are never seen
I am not sure if it will help
I am not sure of much at all
To many emotions
I wish it would stop
I want it all to go away
I wish I truly had wings
Maybe then I would be free
Maybe finding peace and serenity
Yet that is a childish thought
For the world we live in
It will always be a dream...

But I keep going...
It's not their choice but mine,
And I won't stop until they start showing.
FallingHushed tears brim my dark brown eyesFalling7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Because of all the feelings I must hide
No one can know the turmoil I feel
The pain and depression thats
eating away at me
Each day I smile like nothing is wrong
Giving bright smiles to each and all
Yet each day is a struggle to make it through
Not showing what is true
Looking in the mirror I hate what I see
This person that reflects in front of me
Its not who I am
Who I want to be
I am lost and dont know how to find
my way back to me
Feeling dead inside at times
A loss of something that I cant explain
I am falling to pieces inside
Drowning in my silent sea of tears
Screaming, yet no one can hear
Yet there is something in my voice you notice
Or is it the distance in my eyes
Asking me if I am alright
I lie to you and say I am fine
Not wanting you to really know
the hopelessness I am feeling
I know I have much to be grateful for
That I shouldnt feel this way
But this is how it is
The truth is in these words I write to

Your ever glowing smile,
Your hand upon my face,
As you stayed with me for a while.
The kiss upon my cheek,
The look in your eyes,
As you promised to stay with me,
And to never say goodbye.
But soon I see you fade away,
And leave me behind,
I try to hide my tears,
As a little bit me of died.
I sit out in the rain,
My tears falling down my face,
My heart cries out in pain,
As you left me without a trace.
Why did you leave me,
Why did you go,
I'm sorry for what I did,
I'm sorry that you know.
Come and fill this void,
Please come back and stay,
I need you right here beside me,
To hold my hands all the way.
My heart is about to break,
There is one thing left I have to say,
To have and to keep in your heart,
And that is, I will love you always.
MurderWhiteness surrounds me,Murder5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
White flurries as far as the eye can see.
My body continues to run,
As I try to stop what I have done.
My breath lingers in the air,
With so little time to spare.
My body is so numb from the cold,
The wind's bite strong and bold.
It tears at my body with its ice cold fingers,
Its touch continues to stay and linger.
My breath is coming short now,
As my finale comes to a bow.
I can't stop now I must go on,
Try to to fix what I did wrong.
The life that must be saved,
The one that I have dearly craved.
The person I love is where they are at,
That I knew for a fact.
Someone watches me as I make it to the end,
Turning around the next bend.
All feeling is gone,
My body and soul must go on.
But it was too late for them when I came,
For my love's blood was washed with the crying rain.

Breaking the HabitShout into my pillow,Breaking the Habit3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Let it hear my screams,
To feel my pain,
And know my fears.
I'll cry myself to sleep,
and want to do it again.
So I'll claw at my wrists,
and wish they'd bleed...
I'll look in a mirror,
And force myself to smile.
The mirror always lies to me,
It shows me who I want to be.
Not the real Nathalie...
I'll fall to the floor,
And start to cry.
I just need one more,
Just to stop the pain
I'm going through.
But I can't go back to it,
Because tonight I'm breaking the habit.

You said I'm wasteful.
You said I couldn't hold a tune.
You said I made no sense.
You said I had two left feet.
You told me I was ugly.
I will be amazing one day.
Just to make all of you wonder why you didn't get to know me better.

Two because I thought our love was true.
Three for how I let you play with my heart and mess with my mind.
Four because I thought I could change your ways.
Five for how much time I wasted on you,
Six because all you did is throw it all away.
Seven because everything we shared meant absolutely nothing.
Eight for the fact that I lost you,
and I can't do anything to get you back.
Nine because you chose her over me,
Ten because I'm sorry I am not perfect,
but trust me I will never stop loving you

Everything will be okay.
But how do you know,
Have you gone through my pain...
Do you know how I feel,
Or do you think this isnt real.
Do you think I'm a fake?
Because life isn't a piece of cake.
It's not a sweet ride,
Where nothing bad happens.
It is full of bumps on the road,
And life is just a habbit.
You wake up every morning,
As happy as can be.
But me on the other hand,
I wake up with dried tears on my face,
A pillow absolutely drenched,
And some dried blood on my wrist.
You don't believe it,
It cant possibly be true.
Well take another guess,
Because what I'm about to say,
Is the absolute truth...
She's DeadRemembering her day,She's Dead4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And all the words they said.
The images kept taunting her,
Never leaving her alone.
She bawled her eyes out.
Never wanting to let go.
She fought the empty air.
Hiding her emotions,
Showing no despair.
But she finally broke,
She let it all out,
Her screams, her shouts,
And tainted red eyes
She finally gave in.
With a pen and knife,
She told her story that night,
And when she was done,
She took her own life.
I Love You...I told you to stay away from me,I Love You...3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That I wanted no part of you anymore.
But you sticked by my side,
And told me that you loved me.
You wanted to know why we fell out,
Why my feelings for you had abruptly vanished,
But I didn't know how to tell you.
I kept stalling telling you lies,
Saying "I never loved you..."
But it was just a lie.
I thought the longer I kept you waiting,
Maybe my love would come back.
Just maybe I could love you the way you love me.
But you started talking,
Making me see the truth of how I broke you.
The words slipped out of my mouth,
"I loved you, but my love for you vanished.
I don't know why but they just did..."
I told you the truth and you took it in tears.
"That is all I needed to hear."
You walked away from me,
And to this day we haven't spoken.
But I see you've lost you're love for me,
And gave it to someone else.
Now I realize what I did was wrong,
But the worst part is I did love you,
I do love you... And I don't know what to do.
One Of These DaysThe impending doom that it brings upon me,One Of These Days3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Knowing that you'll never be mine...
It brings a frown to my face,
and it breaks my heart a little at a time.
Your face, it taunts me everyday.
Everywhere I look,
You're always in the way.
Down the halls that I pass by,
In the aisles at the store.
Everywhere I go,
I always see you around.
But everytime I get closer,
My hopes just go back down.
I've had feelings for you,
For a really long time.
And no matter where I am,
you're always on my mind.
The thought of being with someone else,
Goes up and down my spine,
But never completely registers,
Because one of these days...
I'll be able to call you mine.
Heart AcheYou told me,Heart Ache3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That you'd never leave,
You'd always be by my side.
Now you're gone and I can't breathe.
My heart aches,
It longs for you.
I don't know why you left,
If our love was true.
All the time we spent,
Did it mean anything at all?
Because if it did,
Then why'd you let me fall?
You're gone now,
And there's nothing left to do.
I've bawled my eyes out,
And I'll try my best to let you go.
Just know one thing.
I will ALWAYS love you.
Too Late...Can't you hear my plea?Too Late...3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm caged up, And need to be set free.
I call for you,
But you don't come.
What do I need to do?
Fall on my knees and bleed.
Can't you see I'm hurt enough,
And all I need is help.
I call for you!
I scream for you!
But you don't come to my rescue...
What will it take?
To see me dead!
Will you notice then?
The pain I felt,
How lost I was!
Will you notice all my injuries...
The cuts and bruises.
What about the suicide attempts?
Will you count how many there were?
Or will you stand there,
And say what a beautiful girl she was,
When all you did was bully me...
Why Did You Lie??I just got the news todayWhy Did You Lie??8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
that youve been lying to me
Did you think I wasnt going to find out?
Surprise on you, I have and the sad
part is I wasnt surprised at all
Why do you feel you have to lie?
Especially to me of all people
Who is the one that stands by you?
Who is forever on your side?
Who is the one whos always there
to protect you ?
Yet you feel you must lie to me
My question is why?
So much I have sacrificed for you
Given so much of myself and more
Even when I feel like I cant move
I still do what I must
Changing everything I know to make it
better for you
And this is the thanks I get; bold lies
right to my face
Its the same dance as last year
With the same played out tune
Yet for some reason I was hoping
it would be different this time
I guess that is what I get for believing
Disappointment ways heavy on my heart
Tears of frustration burn my eyes
Trust that was being re-built has been
torn, destroyed by your actions
No longer sure if
StainedThe world is painted with a stain,Stained5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
A broken heart is a horrible pain,
I can feel as it shatters and breaks,
The suffering inside is too much to take.
It's falling into black
There's only one way to get it back
Take my heart and run away,
This is a game I don't want to play.
I'm burning up from the inside out
I'm told to smile and not to pout.
How can I truly be happy and smile,
When all the things are gone that are worth my while

It's said true friendship is strong
A tree hundreds of years old
yet I saw a withered leaf falling
And the green begins to fade
Look beyond the withered leaf
See past the fading green
Look down into the soil
Where strong roots do grow.
I can hear dry branches cracking
And all the oncoming storms
Black clouds darkening the sky
Are we strong enough to prevail?
Though the branches may crack
As the winds bend them back
Look beyond the darkening clouds
The rays of the sun can be found.
I don't want to lose what we had.
I don't want to see it die.
But the wind takes the leaves away.
A barren skeleton is what is left.
You will not lose what is there
The beauty of nature will prevail
For beneath the soil the roots will grow
Blooming leaves that are forever more
When did we stop to care?
Hoping the tree's big enough
Our visits became rare
The TruthThe people who you see,The Truth3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That act the craziest,
And make everyone laugh.
Those are the ones,
That are hiding pain,
And all of their emotions.
They cry themselves to sleep,
Waking up with dried tears.
They make everyone smile,
Because they don't want anyone upset.
They try to fix others,
When their own lives are falling apart.
They are the ones all around you,
With fake smiles on their faces.
The one's who say "I'm fine."
Through gritted teeth,
And faces full of shame.
They hide their scars,
Their ugly bruises.
Their battle against daily life.
If you were to look beyond,
You'd see what I'm talking about.
Just take a look at my life.

I thought I'd found you.
But you turned out to be another scoundrel.
No longer must I harm myself,
Because you say I'm wrong.
No more torture,
For this silly sad love song.
The crimson red has stopped,
And all my cuts have healed.
But you kept opening my biggest wound...
My heart left bleeding all alone.
I sealed it myself,
By realizing you're not the one...
And now I do my bidding of finishing our love song.

It's no longer there.
Why does it matter?
If no one ever cared.
But your the one,
Yes you who I loved.
Who loved me with their soul,
Made me see the heaven above.
You made me happy.
You filled me with glee.
To see your face,
Is all I really need.
You loved me,
And held me tight.
You protected me from harm,
Even in a deadly fight.
But it is with this,
You were stolen away.
I laid in your blood,
As I wished you would stay.
I stroked your hair,
Tears in my eyes.
As you told me you loved me.
Then I watched you die.
With vengeance I sought,
The killer's death.
To hear his final words,
And his final breath.
But my heart is still broken,
It needs to be fixed!
The only way how,
Is with your kiss.
But as you can see,
There's a problem with that.
Your no longer here,
And I don't know where my heart is at.
The grief, the pain,
It's all becoming a blurry daze!
As I rip out my heart,
And lay it at your grave.
The last thing I said.
Before I died that night.
