Remember everyone is human.
We'll make mistakes.
We'll hurt each other.
We'll never be perfect.
Fitting InI could,Fitting In2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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.
Feelings InsideYet again you feel it within yourself,Feelings Inside2 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.
Stolen From Your GraspHave you ever had somethingStolen From Your Grasp1 year 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?
Goodbye...Such a close friend,Goodbye...2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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.
Perfect LoveHow perfect, how beautiful she is;Perfect Love2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Her skin smooth and pure,
Hair hung from her head, curled just a bit.
Her voice is soft, quiet
And often ignored.
Yet, I listen to her,
And she listens to me;
Wisdom lingers around our words.
Her appearance, although not so important,
Jeans all that time, and a favorite
Hood, ready to wear no matter the weather,
Just as me.
She is so close,
So easy to see;
So I reach out to her,
Finger spread apart,
Well, at least not yet.
YouYou are the source of all my happiness,You2 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.
DrowningI reach up,Drowning2 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,
Stifled LoveYou stand in front of them,Stifled Love2 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...
QuestionsDo you look into the sky like I do?Questions2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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:
The VoicesThey hate me,The Voices1 year 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.
Walk AwayAnd so they sayWalk Away2 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.
2013A new year,20131 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Something that brings change,
Whether you desire it or not,
Because life continues to always move forward,
Not yielding whether rich or poor,
Ugly or beautiful,
Because in the way of life,
We are all humans,
All the same.
Her EyesEverything that hasHer Eyes1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
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.
JudgingNo matter color of skinJudging2 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.
TestYou know you must finish on time,Test1 year 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.
The House in the FieldThe House in the Field2 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.
Tears and LavenderThe smell of smoke and tortured,Tears and Lavender1 year 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.
So BlindWe look at life,So Blind2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It is a decision of choices...
Admit it, you,
And even I have said I've had the worst...
Said life is horrid and
Not deserving of my presence.
But then something changed it all.
There is hope,
There can be change,
We just need to be the ones to change it...
Do not ignore this...
Spread the word.
World peace will not happen overnight,
But the first step will.
The Fake Smile MaskI, am one of the many,The Fake Smile Mask2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
One of the mask wearers.
A fake smile scrawled across my face,
Chipping and fraying at
Its very seams.
Go ahead, ask me if I am alright,
For not wanting to bore you with my problems,
And knowing no one can solve them,
I will slip my fake smile mask on once more,
Nod along in pleasure and continue
To store my secrets in a corked bottle,
One in which I may throw out to sea someday.
So try and read my emotions,
They may be real or fake,
I've had years of practice,
And my truth may be quite hard to take.

Speak No FurtherIt seems as though,Speak No Further8 months 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.
Soothing ThoughtsStrange, yet so very familiar surges ofSoothing Thoughts1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Everlasting energy pulse through my blood,
Carried to the electrons of my brain and
Distributed throughout my entire being.
I do not question them, they are simply too
Splendid to rid of, for it is as though
I have been in this spot before,
As if I have felt this way in times previous.
For, if I am to ponder as to why they have returned,
If I am to ponder why the world’s light has brightened
And the dimness is no longer present, it
May just as well return, and my sweet escape in
Utter peace will be yet again ruined.
