Won't you both keep on your clothes
I have something that I have to say
You might laugh or you might get upset
Are you listening to me yet?
I can't just simply walk away
Boy, I lost my trust in you
Girl, if you knew what I knew
You'd see he's not the person he appears
But you take his word over mine
I just hope you'll leave in time
Before you see that he's your biggest fears
Sometimes I even wonder if
The possibility of this
So called 'karma' even exists
How come I'm here with open arms
An open heart in risk of harm
Yet he's the one with someone else to kiss?
Boy, you don't deserve her
Girl, you deserve better
But still I have to see you hand in hand
Soon you'll see just what he is
And maybe when it comes to this
Maybe then you'll finally understand
Excuse me, I don't mean to offend
But I can't smile and pretend
That you'll be perfect for each other
He'll tell you that you're the only one
Blink your eyes and he'll be gone
Off to find a perfect lover
The Strong Little GirlThere's a girlThe Strong Little Girl2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Standing in the crowd
No one sees
And no one cares
The parents slap
The dog bites
The children laugh
The teacher ignores
This sad, sad little girl
Will stand there in the crowd
Until the very end
She is strong

His words are swords
His beatings are cruel
His love for you
In a sea of cruelty and despair.
"Please don't hurt me," you cry
Your last words as poison
In the air.
"Shut up," he screams,
His words echoing through
The cold and lonely bedroom.
he sinks a knife into your chest
The blood pouring out
The pain of the blade
Couldn't compare to the pain of
He loved you.
ScarsStanding in the showerScars2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Skin turning redder
I stay still and soak it in
This water won't erase my sins
Scars stand out bright white
Burns and cuts all in sight
The real scars cannot be seen
They reside inside of me
I wonder if all I will be
is a creature scarred eternally?
Shameful NightI feel shame when he touches my skin.Shameful Night2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Guilt, regret, but my voice goes numb.
I can't move, my heart is racing.
His fingers feel up my leg, my thigh and then it hits.
I close my eyes wishing he would stop.
His lips press hard into mine.
I look up and see only lust filled eyes.
I like the feeling but its not love, only sin.
His cheap cologne was filling my nose, rubbing onto my shirt.
I lay there when he walks out the door.
Hoping to god this isn't going to happen anymore.

A leaden dread in my chest
But tonight I have you in my arms
Tomorrow I'll fly away
Step away from your side
But tonight you can hold me tight
For tonight, take my hand
Tonight, hold me close
Embrace me through tonight

Held within each traveler’s map
Though they walk the same path,
The milestones differ.
The children, they know every step
Each ink figure on the page,
To them, the story’s history,
Not set in stone, so they can change it.
In a Little Girl's MindThere sits the girl with the things in her eyesIn a Little Girl's Mind2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Monsters, destruction, and sweet butterflies
Hopscotch and daisies, surrounded by screams
Beautiful dresses now torn at the seams
Crayons and paintbrushes, villains and grins
Young, gladsome innocence, hatred and sins
Little red houses on roads left to fade
Gorgeous moonlight shining off of the blade
Blood pouring out as she cries her own name
Knowing she's forced to take each bit of blame
She could have stopped it and left it behind
All of these things in her troubled young mind
She could have saved them if she dared to try
Rather, though, she left herself there to die.
Now, others watch as she sits on the ground
Keeping their distance and letting her drown
In her own worries and things she won't tell
Waiting for her mind to kill her as well…
