Better OffYou call me a traitor?Better Off3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Well, yeah, that's true;
If a "traitor" is a person who sticks up for you.
You call me a whore?
Well, of course you would know.
I rejected your boyfriend when he asked me out, though.
You call me a bitch?
Well, you're no fun.
Though I stayed by your side since day one.
So call me your names,
Give me your best shot.
Bring up the past,
Give me all you've got.
I may do what traitors, whores, and bitches do,
But let's see how much better off I would be without you.

You are the tide.
You are what has kept me alive.
You are my passion,
You are my life.
You are the reason that I fight.
You are the earth,
You are the ground,
You are to who I am bound.
You are the air,
You are the sky,
You are how I get by.
You are my poison,
You are my breath,
And you are all I have left.

suffocated when you
won't let me
breathe the air I know.
You ask me
to follow in your

know where to go.
and it's not in your dusty
it's not the streets
Maybe you didn't reach
your intersection because
your path was always
you cannot live a worldYou cannot really fall in love until you fall outyou cannot live a world3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You cannot really trust him or her if you feel no doubt
These days when we are in love we're normally just in like
You cannot say you do not argue if you never shout.
You cannot feel the pain of words if you cannot hear
You cannot say that you cry if you only shed one tear
These days we want attention for the pain we never know
You cannot say that you are scared if you never fear.
You cannot claim you have been wronged if you're never right
You cannot lose your grip on things if you don't hold tight
These days we say we're lost when we were never even found
You cannot say your life's cut short if it's not the height.
You cannot really fly if you only have one wing
You cannot hate the bee if you did not feel the sting
These days we hate our lives even though we know we're blessed
You will not understand the world if you don't know a thing.
Friends.I'm upset when you're gone,Friends.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But lonely when your here.
I try to explain my feelings,
But then I feel fear.
I'm afraid to tell you
What I think when you're away.
I don't want to be around you,
But I want you to stay.
You're my best friend,
You know me like the back of your hand.
The fact that I know nothing about you,
I honestly can't stand.
But this thing we're doing;
Can we just give up?
Us ignoring each other?
Don't you know that is sucks?
We keep going back and forth,
Being friends, then not talking.
And when I see you from time to time,
We just keep walking.
I want to be forgiven,
But I won't apologize.
I know you do, too,
I can see it in your eyes.
I want what we had.
I want that again.
Please, let's just stop
And let's just be friends.

until proven innocent.
that's how it is
in this world.
nobody reaches out
unless you're dying.
and the big man upstairs?
you ask him for money
but his hotline is
full of other prayers
for no taxes, for
passing tests, and me?
I just want some
food to eat.
Longing For Nothing.Do you ever feel like you're longing for something like I do?Longing For Nothing.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like you need a new friend, someone irresistable, someone so special that you instantly become friends?
Or like a big, new change of life? Like a big favor someone paid you, or a new opportunity you know would be so worth it?
No? Well, I do. And as the seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years pass by...I am longing for whatever I'm longing for to finally show up. Whatever I'm waiting for to happen finally happen. Whatever I'm yearning for finally comes through.
Ignored.The air is chilledIgnored.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The world is stilled
And all I can hear
Is a ticking clock.
I've mad myself numb
Said that it was dumb
To keep crying
It had to stop.
The computer is bright
It's the only light
I ever bothered
To turn on.
I haven't smiled
In quite a while
I'm avoiding the thought
That you're gone.
I've hurt and ached
And I've tried to make
Myself happy though
I'm sad to the core.
This is what it's like
For me at night
When you make
Me feel ignored.
