PainI am in so much painPain2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It hurts me every single day
A piece of glass for my heart
It too easily comes apart.
Torn by hurtful words that came from you
“Why do I breathe the same air you do?”
My existence wavers on this Earth
Soon will I become one with the dirt?
No one ever seems to notice me
Will I ever be set free?
To be valued and noticed by you
Is all I ever want to do.
But I don’t know how much longer
I can try to reconquer
The space I once held in your heart
While it turns more tart.
With flowers on my grave
This I dare say…
“Keep your trivial love that tears so deep
And my experience I shall keep.
Here I shall say adieu
And become a person anew”
AloneIt is quite funny how something simple,Alone2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So simple in both nature and action,
Can make you feel so utterly
Something simple like
Your friends all having time to be together
But no time to be with you.
Something simple like
Your friends smiling and laughing
While you fight the unhappiness inside you
That they don’t seem to notice.
Something as simple as
Not being invited to a party
Because they “exceeded the limit they could invite.”
Something as simple as
Always following behind, one step away
But as you slow to a stop
They don’t turn to make sure you are still okay.
It is quite angering and upsetting
To always have to wonder why.
Why it seems like you aren’t important enough
To keep them company.
Why you will never be good enough
To truly be their friend.
Why you will always be left behind
When you want so much to take part in it.
Why you are always just “average” enough
To never make a lasting impression.
How is one supposed to be
Simple ThingsSimple ThingsSimple Things2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The days pass so quickly,
Emotions felt and forgotten…
Sometimes it is all too easy
To be caught up in it all.
To be caught up in mould
That society wants us to fit into.
To be caught up in the hold
Of “responsibility” and “privilege.”
But what of the setting sun?
Or the stars that shine so bright every night?
Sometimes it’s too easy to say you are done
And just ignore all the simple things of life.
School brings stress and late nights
Caffeine consumed increases, never-ending.
But what about the luminous moonlight?
Or the brilliant hues of the growing flowers?
Why is it that we need to be so caught up
In all these things we call “important”?
I guess it’s not simple to breakup
With things like “routine” and “necessity”.
Don’t we all want to have a little fun?
Don’t we all want to scream and laugh
And lose ourselves in the things we’ve won?
Don’t we all want to feel freed
Soul of InkA soul made of inkSoul of Ink2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That once golden thread tied together
It bleeds through this paper thin body
That won’t last forever.
A sharp word tears through you
Like a target hit with a knife.
How much longer, you wonder,
Do I have to live this life?
Words go unheard, screams unanswered,
Trapped inside the cage you made.
All the happy lives walk on by
As you just watch and fade.
Standing up with new found determination
A blank page you put on your face
You let the world color it as it sees fit
And leave the “you” without a trace.

Rain Of Thunder
I took the gift of light for granted-
Assuming I would always see
But when my world darkened-
My fears took the best of me
And I would give anything
Just to see a spark or a glow
But my faith was also fading
Withering away like my hope
The only sight I had
Was beyond the walls in my mind
But they were just figments from the past
A false savior that I could only hide behind
The shadows were becoming my mask
It was shielding me from living my life
The skies rumbled ominously / Like cries echoing sorrowfully
I felt rain falling endlessly / Like infinite liquid apologies
Reality shed the blackness / The roars fiercely pierced
My eyes ignited the darkness / The heavens suddenly burst
What once was lost
Can also be found
For effects without a cause
Nothing would ever be returned
Our paths will once again cross
For destiny is bound
The lowest of the low-
I have seen
AshesAshesAshes2 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
Rising upon ashes
Rolling upon stones
Living in the rough
But you’ll still grow
They say power is only pain
But you surely have something to gain
The latter is tall
So don’t you fall
It’ll take you a while
To run a mile
So don’t you trip
Pick up every tip
Don’t you sit
For there is nothing to quite
Take a big leap
And reach the peak
The heights of the mountains
The call of wind
Rejoice because you’ve finally won
By, rising upon ashes
And rolling upon stones
Though you were bare and you were broke

a girl of flesh with blood to bleed.
Credit me with greater subtlety;
can flesh approach the winter and the night?
touch the stars and breathe their misty chill?
stand before the ire of men?
My flesh is lightning, hot and sharp.
My blood is the thunder.
Cut me and hear my fury roar volcanic.
I am not so human as you think,
built as I am of word and time.

Late AgainLate Again2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Jerry was the typical average high school student. He made decent grades just enough to get him through and had some friends. But Jerry had a problem, he would always be late to school. So much that the kids and students even nicknamed him for it. He had been so late he nearly had to repeat a grade for it. But one day, it would be his last time being late.
"Oh jeez why am I always late?" Jerry asked himself racing up into the school. He turned the hallway and raced into his class. The teacher obviously saw him when he came in and handed him a pink slip.
"Here you go, late as usual." She said while Jerry slumped into his desk.
The school day went by fast as Jerry looked at the pink slip. It was from the principal. He was to come to her office directly after school. Which is when he heard the bell ring and the kids head out for home, except him.
"Oh jeez, why me. I'm a good person. Sometimes." He joked to himself making his way down the now empty hallway. "Seems like everyone left in a h

The aging processAt five years oldThe aging process2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Her eyes so bright
A little girl full of life
She wanted to be a princess
She had so many dreams
There was nothing she couldn't achieve
At ten years old
She didn't fit in
But she still kept her smile
Her clothes were second hand
Skinny because she didn't have the money to eat
That sparkle in her eyes gone
At fifteen years old
Everyone she loved was dead
That smile of hers, yeah that was gone too
She was thrown into a school
With nobody she knew
Her dreams, those died too
Fifteen years of life was all it took
She doesn't laugh
Her dreams are gone
Her eyes haven't sparkled in years
At fifteen years old she's scarred
At sixteen years old, almost seventeen, she's jaded and pessimistic
Forced to think that her life wasn't meant to be
She think she's a mistake
All she can ever do is mess up
She doesn't understand how love works
She doesn't understand how people work
She doesn't know how to open up
Then one day she gets a book
To write her poetry in
At first she sets it asid

When your smile isn't there,
And your hands aren't running through my hair.
When your words fade,
And nothing is okay.
Is it bad that I cry?
Sob in pain.
Terror strikes me when you fade,
When you say, 'I'll just go.',
and there's nothing here.
I lament in sorrow,
like an unholy mass.
I'll preach and scream,
Only because i can't feel.
Numb is my heart.
When you return,
Smile ablaze, cheerful and happy,
The tears will fade,
I'll breathe again.
The soul's lament.

About the bullied girl,
Who was crying,
As she ran down the hall?
Did you ever wonder,
What happened to her,
On the day that she disappeared,
Or did you just laugh it off?
Did you ever care,
About how she felt,
As you fucking teased her,
While she hurt herself?
Did you ever notice,
The cuts on her arms,
And the brusies on her legs,
Wondering where they came from?
Did you ever see,
Those tear filled eyes,
As she walked home,
To another hell?
Have you ever,
Thought of someone else,
Like that girl perhaps?
I bet you haven't,
You fucking Bully.

Hearing so much “I love you”, it’s driving someone crazy
So let’s exchange hatred with love and just get along
And celebrate the day by listening to a corny song
Singles shouldn’t cry or start weeping inside
Just wait for the one, even if it takes a long time
Couples show your love, but explicitly has always been grime
Nimble kisses and a hug, anything else will be when you reside
Just remember to show care to the one who’s fair
It’s Valentine’s Day after all, and I’m sure you’re aware
That the “special someone” is waiting for you prepared
To go outside so this wonderful holiday can be shared
