Her EyesEverything that has
Ever been so perfectly exciting in my life,
And all its sure enough flaws.
All the beauty of everything
Tangible and abstract,
And the ugly black core they posess.
Every love and hate
Song that plays is bittersweet
In the burning impression
Of the deepest recesses of
Where, of course,
Her eyes observe me,
What I was, and will become.
Her eyes, buried deep in me,
They whisper softly,
Harsh words of rememberance,
"What if", or "Why didn't you..."
But, perhaps I desrve it,
I let her go,
I let that final glance occur,
I let her eyes stay with
Me, for they said everything
Neither her nor I could ever
Dare to say.
The VoicesThey hate me,The Voices3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That’s what the voices whisper to me.
Before I sleep at night,
And just as I awake,
The voices cry and whine
That I am simply not good enough,
That being drop dead is the best way
To make everyone happy,
And be selfish just as I was meant to finally be.
Your AngelYour angel's wings are broken,Your Angel2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Stained and completely blood soaken.
For he once could soar, once could fly,
But now he's fallen from a place so high.
A place he achieved by none other than you,
But end his life he might just do.
Please, do not worry, do not fret,
Until he's gone, he's happy not just yet.
And with a final smile, and sorrowful sigh,
Your angel must bid you a final goodbye.
Head DemonsYour head aches, throbbing from the yelling.Head Demons2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Shuddering, you climb under the covers,
Close your eyes that feel oh so weighed,
Oh so wearly and worn,
And drown yourself in the mess of blankets.
You try to squeeze the tears back in,
But only succeed in making them spew right out.
Your mind races,
Cried unseen tears of it's own,
And you can't seem to stop the demons from whispering:
"You'll never make it.
You were never meant to live long anyways.
You're going to die.
No one, NO ONE will miss you."
But... But why? Why do you let them control you?
Demons can be defeated.
The question is how.
The answer is burried within them.
Cut, Poison, BurnThe world can be a sad place,Cut, Poison, Burn3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Full of heartache, disappointment
And corrupt governments.
For when a disease, a intricate flaw
Weaves its way into the system on which
We so strongly rely on,
One in which we so strongly take for
Grated more often than not,
Our leaders see only one way to
Rid of it.
Cut it out, hopefully it will leave,
Hopefully, it has not already spread,
And we have not just removed the little
Pureness we had left.
A temporary solution, yes,
One that may almost immediately solve
Our issues at hand,
But at what cost?
Only to bring it back again,
Possibly worse than before?
Burn away our problems,
Not much different from the first two.
Yes, as said, it may work for now,
It may provide some relief,
Some sweat to be wiped away.
But how long until it comes back?
Listed above, in the simplest
Description I believe necessary,
Are all credible solutions to this disease,
This horrid infestation.,
But they are the only solutions
For those who have not matured,
Feelings InsideYet again you feel it within yourself,Feelings Inside3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like a twisting pain, sharp, and
You somewhat enjoy it, the pain, for
It brings color to a dull world that you see.
Is it jealously?
Perhaps, although there is no reasonable
Thought that comes to mind as to why it
It doesn't go away, but when it does,
After much will and forcing out,
You think that you have conquered it,
And if it may ever return again,
It will be easy to rid of and ignore,
However, that never seems to be the case.
SuicideTears burn your eyes,Suicide2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Dripping down your face just
The same as the blood that smears
Across your arms and thighs.
You sigh, and gaze into the mirror,
Not satisfied with what you are,
Never good enough.
Not for anyone.
No one will love you.
Who could love you?
You stand alone, blood pooling around
Your toes, shaking.
A bottle that holds your
Freedom waits on the counter before you,
Ready to save you like the angel that
So close... It was not your choice
To be this way, to think the
Way that you do,
But finally, this.
This is in your control.
This is your choice.
You just need to reach out,
As much as it burns, strings and just... hurts...
You shake, and close your eyes.
No more words will stab at your heart,
No more thoughts will haunt your mind,
No one else can hurt you.
Stifled LoveYou stand in front of them,Stifled Love3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And oh, how their eyes seem to shine
Back at you,
And you feel such an urge just to lean
Over and kiss them,
Yet, you hold back,
For they are simply taken,
And your heart cannot be
Taken from you, for they
Already grasp another.
And act like nothing is wrong,
But ever time they speak
Of their lover's name,
Your heart shrivels up,
And cries out to them.
But you keep your mouth shut,
And stifle the pain,
For you cannot be loved back,
No, not someone like that,
For you simply do not deserve your only love...

Oh trust me, I could.
So easily could I change my appearance,
Both inside and out,
So easily can I become another,
Another part of a widespread group,
Yet, I do not,
I do not speak to it,
My opinions kept silent,
My thoughts rarely expressed.
Stolen From Your GraspHave you ever had somethingStolen From Your Grasp3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Have you ever experienced something
You never wanted to end?
Did it exceed all expectations,
And make you feel on top of the world?
Have you ever had that very thing
Stolen from you?
Has that thing ever been snatched from
Your grasp, no matter how tight you thought you held it?
Did you wish you fought for it back,
Day after miserable day you drag along this world?
Do you ever wish
You could have done it sooner?
Or that is perhaps never happened at all?
YouYou are the source of all my happiness,You3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The root of all my pain.
A bitter sweet love I seem to have for you,
But when I think of the things you have done,
Then back to myself,
I wonder why it had to be you...
You of all people, I fall for,
Deep and slowly, although fully aware.
I talk to you and I think my heart stops,
A joyous feeling, oh so happy indeed,
But when I remember you have somebody else,
A part of me whines, and cries and dies,
Silently as I wince from the hole forming in my heart,
A put on a smile,
And pretend its alright.
Walk AwayAnd so they sayWalk Away3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sometimes you just need to walk away,
And see who follows.
I did this one day,
Walked away, far away,
But sadly no one followed.
And so back home I walk,
Head hung with sorrow,
A pencil drawn smile.

Goodbye, I say now,
And even though you may not read this,
I will miss you.
I will miss your one of a kind thoughts,
How you looked upon the world,
And how you so gratefully let me help
With problems in your life.
I wish you the best of luck,
Although I doubt you'll need much.
JudgingNo matter color of skinJudging4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Culture or sexual orientation,
Beliefs, religion, or even simple opinions!
Judging is wrong, you cannot
Judge people on their beliefs,
Because it is beyond wrong,
And can lead to suicides.
Can you live with blood on your hands?
You will be judged, no matter what,
For that we cannot change.
Do not stoop to their level,
For no metaphors are needed here
To prove why this is wrong.
Take A ChanceTake a chance andTake A Chance3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Tell someone you love them,
That you can't live without
Them and that you'd die without them.
Take a chance and
Emerge from the hollow
Shell we all stray away in,
And live life instead of
Spending all that time
Contempating how you should.
TestYou know you must finish on time,Test3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You know you mustn't take too long,
For there is not enough time in your existence
To possibly complete all the challenges
The test of life bring before you.
Nothing can match the amounts
Of effort you have put forth,
How extremely hard you have worked
To achieve all that you have.
Nothing can measure the amount
Of contemplating over the simplest
Mind boggling problems,
And quickly deducting the most intricately
Weaved mazes in the fissures of the human mind.
Solving the test of life is no easy task to
Say the least, but if you never try,
You can guarantee the results to be negative.
That Girl UnnamedSuch a forbidden word are you,That Girl Unnamed2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Never to be read, never to be
Spoken by the likes of I,
For I would not deserve such beauty anyways.
Such the sweetest sound are you,
Soft spoken and warm hearted,
Words tinted with underlined
Character and majesty.
Such a unique taste you must bring
To life, having filled anyone
Who lays eyes upon you with unexplainable
Wonder as longing tugs at my heart.
Such a mystery are you,
Red blushed and joyous on the surface,
But I can see the storm of tears
Building within you, and the rainbow
Tears and LavenderThe smell of smoke and tortured,Tears and Lavender3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Still beating hearts echoes hardly around the sky,
Bouncing off clouds and tearing away at the
Wallpaper that masks the tears of the
Deep blue sea some call the realm in which
Angels sing and curse those who snap at their
Harps' golden strings.
This realm is painted colorless lavender,
One that used to cry its joyful harmonies,
But now mourns the fact that those who watch it
So mesmerized from below,
Disorientated the system of work ethics,
And decimated its very morals.
Not only is the crack going ever larger along the
Skyline, but humanity does not even realize this.

The lives you've so willingly destroyed
Will haunt your conciousness for enternity.
The love was false,
The promises were lies,
And you can't stop your head from spinning.
Perhaps when you're old and gray,
You'll remember the glory days
When you were thought to be great.
But, we all know, us voices
In your head,
What you've done,
And why you deserve to perish.

Love the life you have, and wish for nothing more?
Do you smile at your faults,
And accept the fact they make you who you are?
Do you find it odd I can be myself,
Not just another follower in a world with a lack
Of fitted leaders?
Do you have pity in me when I do not fight back,
Not wanting to stoop to your level.
Do you see me as some creature,
With my tentacles flaring about and obnoxiously loud noises?
I know my faults, so I accept them.
I know I can be annoying, but who are you to judge that?
I know I do not fight back, for I do not believe it will solve anything.
I know who I am,
The question is:
Speak No FurtherIt seems as though,Speak No Further2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In such a tangled mess of thoughts
And confusing situations,
There is nothing left to say.
It seems as though,
In this ignorant society,
One in which no one truly listens,
There is no one left to hear.
It seems as though,
With a slash on each damned wrist,
And a mindset that no one longer cares,
There little need to speak any further.
The House in the FieldThe House in the Field3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Time stands still around the house in the field,
As it just barely manages to stand,
Lonesome, and broken.
Hanging on tightly to the Earth,
Like it has sprung roots to anchor it down.
The world moves around lethargically
While the house in the field seems to not
Even be standing at all.
DrowningI reach up,Drowning4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But my hand grasps the nothingness
That is around me.
I cry out-
So painful and sorrowful,
But no, no one hears me,
And ones who do
Wouldn't care even the slightest bit.
Surrounded by the horror,
As I am sucked in further,
The life forced out of me,
Like God's hand squeezing my soul
From my body, and I gasp-
And drown soundlessly,
