House of MirrorsThey say I spinHouse of Mirrors2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
a web of lies,
but webs are for spiders.
They catch their flies.
No, my lies are mirrors,
each a different reflection.
They fill up my house,
my sinful collection.
Sometimes I get lost.
There's so much confusion.
Which ones are real?
Which are illusions?
I try to back track,
but the mirrors turn me around.
I cry out for help,
but the mirrors block the sound.
I give up.
Hang another mirror.
In this one I'm cruel and cold
on the exterior.
How many reflections
will I become?
Which one is real?
Where have I gone?
Between Heaven and HellEveryone has a story to tellBetween Heaven and Hell2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The time and place the falls from grace.
We all walk at our own pace
forever attempting to win the illusionary race.
So I took the time, to sit and rewind....
granted pause to the cause, reflections of the mind.
Years upon years slowly drifted on by...
Journeys left behind slumbering alongside the road of unknown,
collecting dirt and debris, anxiously awaiting to be set free,
but could not flee...no one to save me and turn the key.
Everything has a time and a place within the enchanted space.
A story to tell of heaven and hell...
Realise this upon states of bliss,
In the beginning we all fell--in the end we all shall fall.
Can no longer ignore the ancient call.
Fake WonderlandA place where you want to breathe,Fake Wonderland2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
But you cannot get enough air.
A place that you want to leave,
But you can’t, you are in despair.
Freedom is something I wanted long ago.
They used to tie me up with a rope.
I am packing and now I am ready to go,
To rebuild, to change it all there is no hope.
In lies we have to swim every day,
To love we are not allowed anymore.
Anything you want you are not able to say,
They throw you in a room and lock the door.
A fake wonderland that no one can escape,
If your body is gone, your soul will stay.
The truth they can no longer shape,
They want to throw it to the sea away!
You freed me from this chain,
Now my soul can for a while rest.
I want to love you, but I am insane:
To alter this realm I try my best!

"I'm not an artist. I'm just a kid with a keyboard."
“And, y'know, I’m probably not really sick.”
“I read a lot of books. I probably just act like this because I saw it somewhere on the Internet.”
“I just want to be more like my dad.”
“I’m really just a pathological crybaby who wants attention,” I tell you.
You say, “I think there are better ways to get attention than fake a mental disorder.”
“Maybe I’m doing it for fun.”
The problem isn’t that I need to see a therapist.
The problem is that I need to see a therapist because I dream about slamming your head into a tree.
Right after we broke up, you took me to the bike cage and promised me everything would be okay. Then you got together with that fifteen year old from Michigan and told our friends that I was a freak.
Slamming your head into a tree might be painful, but nothing will ever hurt more than kn

so Winter stole her amnesic heart and tossed it to the wolves.
"Devour me," the stars seemed to beg;
so Gravity plunged them into the ocean's nebulous depths.
These lips no longer offer hymns up to fallen gods—
so Fate sacrificed herself for the chance to be reborn.

when I have people who care?
why is it i feel so alone
in a room full of people?
Why do I want to cry
in the middle of class?
Tell me why!
Why is it that
I am disgusted with myself?
That I just want to cry?
Why is it that I'm still here?
I know people care for me,
I have friends,
and people who want me to be happy.
But i'm just not.
I hate myself,
and I don't know why.
I'm disgusted with myself
and I can't see why
anyone would care for me.
When even I hate myself.
and I really have no reason to.
And when I am thinking of why,
I'm thinking of why I shouldn't

I don't know why

All I know is that right now

They'll find a way
To get you.

Invisible GirlMaybe this was meant to be?Invisible Girl3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Her never ending misery.
This was what fate had planned,
Spent moments gone in a flash.
So now she would be that invisible girl
No one cares to know her world.
Lost in their own thoughts and dramas
Not a moment spent for her.
Never again will she trust
Not a soul deserves to know
Who she is and who she wants to be
Are only for her to know.

This isn't how she wanted to feel.
You've done it now,
You sent her over the edge,
And she just can't handle it.
You broke her down,
And she crumbled to the ground.
All she wants to do is die,
All she wants is to not feel pain.
How could you?
You knew she could break,
You knew how vulnerable she was,
So why did you do it?
Why tear her a part?
She needed you the most,
But all you did was leave her in the dust.

Me with my bleeding heart
We couldn't be together
But we could not be apart
It wasn't hard to miss
The writing on the wall
So we should have jumped
Because it wasn't hard to fall
I crashed so many times
Each time I thought I could fly
Every book you started
Always ended in goodbye
And though it was so long ago
It still feels like yesterday
It doesn't matter what we do
There’s nothing we can say
Times that left us broken
Left us bleeding, burned and bruised
Love could only teach us
What it feels like to lose
To the fire and the flame
It could have been anything
But only brought us pain
Forever seems so far away
With so much left behind
There's nothing left to lose
Now that there’s nothing left but time
I couldn’t move the mountains
And you couldn't part the sea
But everything we would have done
And all that we could be
We have walked forever
Through the thunder and the dark
We both have fought with demons
And we wear our
