encouragementYou won't break me down.encouragement2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
No matter what you say, what you do, how you try to scare me.
Because I'm better then you. Better then all of you.
Hurt me all you want, it won't matter.
I won't hate you. I don't hate you. Even if you want me to hate you.
I know we're all hurting. I think it's better to share.
Share your life with people. Let people in. Be a part of something good. Something hopeful.
Something that can make you feel proud.
I know it's hard. It's very, very hard sometimes.
But there's always a sun in the sky somewhere. Even if we can't see it.
Don't hate yourself. Don't think you're not worth it.

On Sunday morning
I went through the dictionary
and erased every synonym
for the word 'beautiful'
and replaced it with your name
I made origami stars from
all the little notes I wrote
to you, but never had the guts
to actually give you,
I threw them out that window
and made wishes on them
like shooting stars
[I hope one reached you]
and I'm calculating all the times
you made me feel special,
took my breath away,
or even made me blush
but I lost count somewhere
in the hundreds
I dreamed of possibilities -
could, should, would be's -
if you were mine
I lost tr
Four AcesI like to look at life like a game of poker.Four Aces3 years ago in Settings More Like This
A game where there are choices to make and those choices deciding the next set in turn.
Choices of the players around you also dictate where your chips may fall.
If you make all the wrong moves and loose all your chips it's like playing Russian roulette.
You made all the wrong choices or the other player was just better than you.
You don't get to come back.
In life that means you've died; of murder, suicide or of a natural death. Game over.
If you loose a round then you have a chance to continue on.
In life that relates to bad relationships, loss of a job or whatever, but you move on.

demons dreaming, angels anguish, babies breaking,
storms falling, dirt rising, fingers twisted,
blue flat lines, blood red romances, blackened innocent,
groaning eyes, whispering thighs, lying ass,
unfettered feathers, scrabbling claws, wingless hearts,
disbelieving dichotomy, lipless revelry, slow sung stories,

Well, I used to love the color green. I know, not that exciting, right? Well, its a big deal for me. You see, when I was young the first color I learned was green. Green then blue. I always loved those two. Growing up I always loved them.
Now, youre probably wondering, why would I tell you this? This piece of information thats so useless to everyday life. Well, the thing is, I dont like green any more
Painful Moments.I'm happy to just sit at a table with old friends,Painful Moments.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
While people fall in love around me,
Smiling through the loneliness I feel.
I'm happy to just fall in a bed by myself,
While other people glide together into theirs,
Sleeping through the emptiness I feel.
I'm happy to just eat popcorn in a movie by myself,
While people around holding hands whisper about the plot,
Silent in the darkness all alone.
Always I am alone, always silent, smiling or sleeping..
They drag me under, these stubborn moments,
Stillness in the dark slowly drawing me down,
Without a hand to hold I will always descend.

a 1000 feet higher into the sky

this path has never been easy for me
An ode to teachers.oh true heart within thy supple lipsAn ode to teachers.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
the knowledge of centuries resides,
within your hands the lives of hundreds hides,
Take each breath as you step to your stage,
mould broken hearts, broken homes-
dreams buried in innocent rage.
Never listen to a fool's history or to poisonous spite,
for you hold the power and respect is your right.
While you may feel like a kamikaze let yourself fly as wings unfold,
break the ribbons that bind and the blood that holds.
oh star reacher, for you heaven screams,
for flowers, for honey, for honesty as it seems.
So drown yourself in the madness of the sun -
and let your wisdom flow with th

never knowing exactly what I was missing,
hoping to see a void fill that I didn't know of,
picking myself up off the ground.
Never knowing exactly what I was missing,
I wandered in helpless abandonment,
picking myself up off the ground,
in little fractured pieces that shone green with envy.
I wandered in helpless abandonment,
the enigma in a world gone psychopathic,
in little fractured pieces that shone green with envy,
I couldn't even see my sunset through the fog.
The enigma in a world gone psychopathic,
the false thunder of bombs couldn't disguise the screams,
I couldn't even see

it's no longer me in your head,
I don't fight with tanks and bombs,
I can only whisper words to make you feel.
You take me from the hands of the gods,
but I don't want to be a zombie,
I don't fight with sticks and stones,
I was only there so you weren't left alone.
Catch me with this fatality in frailty,
it's never been my fault you shatter,
I don't fight with gossip and lies,
Never have I wanted the filth that fills your mouth.
Gravity shouldn't keep me, Let me defy it, defy you,
as I defy the crimson edged words you spill,
I don't fight with knives or razors,

To know oneself.One day you will see your hands,To know oneself.4 years ago in Open More Like This
and the lips you bestow with butterfly kisses,
will hold gentle promises.
One night you will smell your dream,
and taste a heart strung with broken diamonds,
taste it melting slowly.
One year you will hear the sun,
and know the heat of a warm pure thought,
glistening on divine meadows.
One life you will touch a cloud,
and feel the only thing you can think of as heaven,
freezing your fingers shut.
One time I hope you will wake up,
and actually know what I am talking about,
and smile with lazy hope brighter then a sun.
