I'm a human being
Not a 'ragamuffin' with no sense of style
I choose based on comfort, not colors
And I act how I want
I dress badly for the school pictures because
They always try to
Make me look pretty
You're taking a picture of
Not some sweet little girl in the eighth grade
Don't you dare touch me
My arms are tender
And my face is bruised
I fall down a lot
Don't touch my hair when I mention
I hate when people do that
I'm a girl
Not a Barbie doll
Even if I look like one
In fact, don't even look at me
I don't mind someone
Who pays attention to detail
And points out mistakes
But on you, I ha
The nightThe fireThe night5 months ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
My only friend
is my weapon
As I shoot them down
And stab all of them if i'm out of ammo
I ask myself
will I make it through the night?
As I run
The crowd swells and follows
They catch my scent
My living flesh and blood
Their smell of rotting flesh
burns in my nose
As I toss an explosive
Some crawl towards me
I back away and shoot their heads off
Once they're gone
I'm Rebuilding and Reloading
Because I know that's not the last off them
there's plenty of more
they took my world
and turned it into a hell for the living
I run towards a box to get a weapon
Just my luck
A machine I can use to
Story in shortI am a daughterStory in short3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To a father who is a pedophile and a mother who didn't protect me
I am a sister
To six siblings, five sisters and one brother
I am a mother
To my little boy, who is my reason to keep on living
I come from physical abuse
Years by the hands of a step father who hated me, and a mother who just watched from the distance
I come from mental and emotional abuse
Loved one second, hated another, and told over and over again how bad, worthless, and unneeded I am
I come from sexual abuse
Scary nights learning things I shouldn't of learned so young , no one believing me till the FBI came
I locked away the pain

A young man at the bus stop
turns to me and softly asks
"Why aren't you wearing shoes?"
He taps the faded leather
of his suedo-skin
and his eyes smile in a gentle lilt
before his mouth does.
I tell him that I like
to feel the earth breathe.
That textures keep my mind alive
and ticking like a clock.
I tell him that I'm trying to grow roots
so my pale limbs can twist into a tree
(the way L and I talked about it in therapy).
I tell him that my soul is lonely
and the ground is the only thing that's always there.
I tell him that bare skin is sensitive
and stroking it with every (twelfth) step
is a soothing form of self-care

And everything is blue ..
Look at the sea
And it's vast beauty
Where everything is so real .
And nothing is a lie

connect in my mind the way pools connect,
encasing me like an insect in amber.
Soft pink lips,
the top differing in color from the bottom
like paint chips,
nuzzling beneath my cheek bone,
always the left one.
are gaunt in a way reminiscent of harsh things,
quietly scalloped against mine,
Hair bristled like Welcome mat,
drifting between my fingers,
inconsequential in it's performance, always drifting.
Affection like Springtime,
smelling of warm soil and sorbet,
twining in me like late afternoon licorice clouds
and earthy grounds of coffee in my teeth.

Fire Witch Ch.1
June 21. That's the day I first learned I was a fire witch. The day I was first attacked by Demon Knights. The day I killed my mother. Kon said I was the most powerful fire witch she had ever trained, but that I couldn't control my power. Only now can I control the fire that burns through me, but it's too late. I was so proud when I used fire to defeat the demon knights; I turned to Kon to see the look of pride on her face. Instead of seeing pride, I saw ashes, ashes all around me, with no release from the gray.
I don't remember much after that, only running away, away from people, away from Kon.

Not one sound, not one word.
Not a whisper, not a scream,
No one hears a single thing.
No matter what I do or say,
They look right through me anyway.
I jump and sing and dance around,
But they don't hear a single sound.
Not a shout, not a sigh,
Not a giggle, not a cry,
Not a beat and not a breath
This is my fate that's worse than death.

A dream come true, a broken heart,
A sudden death, hope reborn
A page is turned, another torn.
Something lost and something found.
A danger calling while safe and sound

That's where new year takes a stand.

I still remember singing in my room when I was six, and having my mother come down the hall and slam the door so hard that the windows shook.
Her nails hurt when she scraped the tears off my face. "It doesn't matter what you want," she'd always tell me.
Like, when that drunk driver swerved and hit her car I didn't want her to leave me, and it didn't matter.
Once on vacation I bought a pair of fuzzy leather heels for two hundred dollars, and when I wore them to dinner, I found out that
1. "Suede" is a fancy word for "fuzzy leather."
And 2. Good things don't last: That night my cousin told me that she thought 135

I found myself at the beach, dressed in my usual attire: Converse, jeans, and a hoodie. Walking solemnly, by myself, I led myself to thinking about my father. That day was the sixth year anniversary since I'd last seen him, and it left me in a bitter mood. It was Sunday, and school had just started for my junior year just three weeks prior. I hadn't heard a word, not a phone call or email or text message, from him since the day he left. It wasn't even just me that he hurt.
My mother was put into a cold state after he moved out. Of course, she gave him a choice: the money or us. He chose his gambling instead of handing over his payche

they laugh, but this is no joke
my shaking knees do not smile,
the sweat on my palms do not smell sweet.
I have been born in this skin,
and have loved it whole heartedly,
watched it grow, and play
nurturing it, neglecting it
I know the sent of my skin, and every follicle
of each hair which grows wild,
soft and familiar, like the forests of home.
I love the wrinkles, and dimples,
the great mass of my flesh.
My fingers play across it
as a child would trace her fingers over
the body of a lake, or the frost on the window
during a cool morning.
I speak in tongues, in dreams, and images

I won’t give a name
Because I know everyone is wishing the same.
But, Santa, please,
Bring my family some much needed ease.
Free them from the pain
Because I think it’s making them insane.
And mumbling, incoherent talks
Is all at my house everyone hears;
These torturous noises always fall upon my ears.
There are some presents under the tree
That aren’t for my parents or me.
They were for my sister,
Who is no longer here because of a stranger mister.
If you could
And Mommy and Daddy said you would,
Please take her presents away
Because no one wants them here to stay.

I see my ceiling from my bed, so distant and aloof.
I reach out my hand, I try to get there, but I can not,
as with my dreams, my hopes, my future.
I'm so destined to remain on my bed, staring at the ceiling of my room?
No matter how far, the ceiling is there, is not only far out of reach,
as are the clouds,
the stars and
This is little, but I will suffice.

The greatest happiness would be the greatest loss

Your loving eyes, your outstretched hand:
they beckon me out of the darkness.
But wretched scars are written on my flesh,
and unwanted memories cling to me.
How could you love the most unworthy?
But still you call me beautiful, lovely, treasured.
In your embrace, my doubts melt away.
The pain that haunts the corners of my mind flees in fear of the light.
I know now I am free, for you have made it so.
The blindfold made of lies has been removed.
My sewn lips have been parted so I may breathe and speak.
The chains that have held me here are gone.
I dare not look back now.
For what good would it do me?
I would only hurt again.

Is that yes, I do regret.
I often think of how I would have been
If, perhaps, we hadn't met so often.
If I would be someplace better
Where I didn't lie to my loved ones
Or dare try to, ever.
I am not blaming you for my mistake
Twas my action that followed yours
That got us to this unhealthy place.
And now my heart goes back in time
With something heavy on it's mind
Something that is hard to admit
And that is yes,
I said I love you
And I do regret...

The People of Silver and GoldShe comes from where the wind blowsThe People of Silver and Gold1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
A torrent of flashing gold
With silver linings and stiff embroidery
Untouched, by the cold
A queen of the east
The north and the west
Ruling where ever she rose
Commanding the tide, the rise and fall
The snaking of silver and gold
The sinker of ships, the robber of riches
These legends are all foretold
The fantasies and wants of soldiers in trenches
Obsession, nightmares unfold
The sweetest of voices, the bringer of misfortune
How subtle and deadly she rose
Commanding the rise or fall of the people
The people of silver and gold

Whatever you do
You keep me alive
But barely, confused
I understand, I think
But hell is hard to leave

Regurgitated, one by one
Who knows what there is
A sweet sweet summer
Of banked fires
Maybe I can forgive
But how can forgiveness
Repent the unknown?
Just please, please
Let me go.
