respectHow dare you?respect10 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Who are you to place yourself so high above me?
Are you a divine being? a God?
What makes you so superior to me?
You have done nothing to deserve my respect,
and yet you try to place yourself in a better rank.
You are nothing to me,
so don't you dare expect me to honor you.
Respect is not a right, it is a privilege.

My Life In a Nutshell
I (That's just another word for me.)
I tried to reason with myself today.
I didn't give you a fair chance to run before you fell in love with me.
By the way, why did you fall in love with me?
Or did you trip over the last heart you broke and land in my arms?
I saw the truth today.
It wasn't pretty.
Yesterday I had a dream.
You lost me.
I found me.
The world use to look so dim.
Oh wait, there's the light switch.
Damn, the light just burned out!
The future looks so bright.
No wait, that's just car headlights.
I think I died and went to...
Not you again.
Weren't you here last year?
I just started a new lease on life.
My credit score is above average.
Oops! I just read it backwards.
My mom use to say: Be whatever you want.
Mom I want to be adopted, just kidding.
My mom said: I want to be taken serious, just not too serious.
I wish I knew.
That's it, I just wish I knew.
Well that and many other things.

I've said my goodbye and I've ripped off my wings
It hurts my heart but I need to get over these feelings
I've suffered for so long under your reign
and I think it's about time that I end all this pain
I'm starting my journey into the begotten future
To find all the missing pieces of my heart that I need to nurture
I'll have to search far and wide and it make take a few years
but I'll grow as a person and face many of my fears
As I slowly grow older and farther from you
I'll never forget our memories and the day that you knew
that I was too much for you or maybe to little
and decided to leave me behind and not to dwindle
Sometimes I may stumble and cry out your name
but don't come back and re-spark the flame
I need to move on, we were suffocating each other anyway
From now on it will be only myself telling me "It's okay"
Your Lies have almost took my lifeYour Lies have almost took my lifeYour Lies have almost took my life1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your Lies have almost took my life,
Pretty blind, now I see your knife,
Cutting me down to earth,
Do you even know how much that hurts?
Of course you do,
Because it's you,
It's fun to see me on the ground ,
Look around ,look around!
All my pain is your work
All my blood your joy,
Am I just your little voodoo toy?
Am I the dork?
And yes, you're really made it,
Looking at me
I'm on my knees
Begging for my life, which seems to flee
And all the flames ,they hit and hurt
Goodbye my life ,goodbye my love
Your lies have took me life…
If OnlyEverything seems to remind me of youIf Only2 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
When I see you I can't help but to stare
Your in my head no matter what I do
If only you can see how much I care.
Walking and making heads turn
Every guy wanting you
Without knowing you make my heart burn
I'm dying inside if only you knew.
Sparkling brown eyes
And silky brown hair
You are where my heart and soul lies
Wishing we're the perfect pair.
There's nothing for you I wouldn't do
If only you could see how much I love you.
Like a RoseLike a rose wih its thornsLike a Rose2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She is so beautiful and bright
So delicate she can be torn
And for her pollen bees will fight.
Like a rose blooms in the spring
Covered in morning dew in the spring
The sight of her makes birds sing
With her around i'm never blue.
Like a rose in a field
She outshines all, she is the best
Her thorns protecting like a shield
For her love i'll never rest.
Like a rose of every color
She is unlike any other.
Where to go from thereWhere to go from there1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Can I trust what you say?
Or will you tell me lies while looking away?
Are you in this to stay?
Or am I just a game you play?
Did it ever mean anything to you?
Was any of it real? I feel like such a fool.
Did you mean any of the promises you made?
Or like your supposed love will they fade?
I kept everything real with you
Telling the truth even when it hurt
I never pretended to be anything I wasn't
Being me even when you hated it
It is a good thing, this love you are throwing away
I would have done anything for you
I let you in when I didn't want to
Now I guess I know why I hesitated
Tired of life making me feel so jaded
Trust is broken, honesty misspoken
Not sure where to go from there
Wish your heart was really here
I Met MeToday I met a girl,I Met Me9 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
and she asked, "How are you?"
"Just fine," I replied.
She said, "No, tell me what's true."
Perplexed, I stopped and stared.
She was young, no older than eight.
Her eyes were still innocent.
They knew no hate.
"What did you say?"
I asked in confusion.
"You know what I mean," she said.
This girl was in a delusion.
Trying to be kind,I replied,
"No I do not."
She frowned and replied,
"You lie quite a lot."
Now I was agitated.
What does this girl know?
Acting like she's so intelligent.
I'll just tell her to go.
"Let me explain!"
She exclaimed in haste.
"I know you're not alright.
I know you feel misplaced."
How in the world?
Who is this little girl?
"But I'm here to say you'll be alright.
Though your friends will leave,
leave you feeling alone and cold,
you'll find a reprieve."
"So just stay strong
because I know you can do it."
How? Who are you?
I wished she would quit.
Suddenly it was silent,
and I turned to see,
but there was no one there at al

With beauty may come happiness, but with happiness always comes beauty.
When's the last time you did something for the first time?
Must I pretend I'm someone else, for all time?
I don't understand how I can care this much, when you don't care at all.
If you can't handle me at my worst, you certainly can't handle me at my best.
All that matters is who you are and the choices you make; that is what makes you, you.

peeling paint - you are rosacea

salt and soil, of burdening years
that rub water in your joints. precious

and sweating rain, you darling

when I am ash and shadow, wax

and hold my love poems
in your cold stones.
Saying farewellSaying farewell6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
If you say farewell, then please don't cry!
Instead of crying smile thy loveliest smile!
Thou shallst gleam and shine from deep within!
Because that is exactly the way I want to keep you in my mind!
Not grieving for me thou shallst and not wearing dark coloured clothes!
Thou shallst wear thy most colourful clothes and a bunch of flowers in thy hand!
A smile shall enlighten thy face and thy laughter shall fill the air!
'Cause as you know, my ray of light, when crying the hearts break atwain!
A farewell never for eternity is, if you carry the other with you and think of him with bliss!
Thy lovely faceThy lovely face6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Thy lovely smile reached my heart,
it was like being send from up above.
I couldn't lift my eyes from you ...
it was as I once knew you.
You were an angel walking on the ground,
now you are waiting there without a sound.
Thy tender eyes once gleaming so bright,
now only enlighted by bright daylight.
In stone thy face now looks upon the passers by,
sometimes a person is wondering: Why is this, oh why?
Why does that face look at me,
like it could see ... like it could see.
I felt the truth in you,
you looked back - and it felt so true.
My little angel shine in the darkest night,
bring them light ... shining light.
Thy smile will reach their souls,
drag them away from their empty holes.
I looked into your eyes that day ...
all I wanted to do ... was stay.
Your face still lovely - you looked at me
... and we all can see what we want to see.
Turquoise EyesTurquoise Eyes2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Turquoise eyes. So glossy, so bright. Nobody could ever forget them. She could not, even after all those years.
Saturday, spring, morning. Three words of color and purity. A fresh air, covered in dandelion puff, was blowing their minds. He was moving his trembling lips so tender and gentle, that the girl could barely notice a word that he said. The words wanting to get out were just like hieroglyphs wanting to be discovered. Sounds of poetry flowing from his soul, such a pity he was a little shy, even though he would not admit it.
That day, the lady from the eye's mirror was so childish, naive, just like being hypnotized. Who is the one to blame for that sinner within? Spring or the boy?
Holding hands since break of dawn until the blue moonlight. Sweaty palms, but stuck with glue. Cheerful smiles, but always lost in separate ways. The day seemed to be endless. The girl felt beautiful, safe and comfortable next to him, she felt so natural to be around him. The young man made life a clou
