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

His fingers dance upon my skin
As he begs to be let in,
His lips, so warm, tease my ear
As his breath dances
The fear disappears.
Bodies close as close can be
Not a thing between him and me.
His kiss so soft,
Tongue hot as fire,
Coaxing my own to dance.
With him inside,
We lose track of time,
Our hearts beat
Through the pain
To brand new, sweet pleasure.
The first time of many,
At this point, is done.
I could lie here,
In his arms, hot as the sun.

I'll Love You Even In DeathHer hand tightens on mineI'll Love You Even In Death5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As I kiss her into the bed.
Her mouth is parted,
Inviting me in.
She's never acted this way before.
Always alone, always sulking.
But now she's opened up
She's shown me her scars, her tears.
I lick her neck right under the chin
She squirms under me, sighing for more.
But I don't.
Laying down besides her,
I kiss her on the head.
She may pout in protest,
But I just pull her closer.
Until she's wrapped in my arms.
She fits me, like a puzzle piece.
I'm not ever letting her go,
Not even if she dies.
Our love is a songI've tried my hardest to write you a songOur love is a song3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
but there's so many lyrics that its too long
So I'll write a compilation of music instead
and make sure to say all thats been in my head
Track one will be how we came to be
At first so wild, young, and free
track two will be to romance you
with just enough rhythym to dance to.
Track three will be as sensual as a lustful night
But still like a love ballad done just right
Track four, a melody for lovers who follow their heart
and will try to stay strong even while they're apart
for now track five will remain unwritten
but one things for sure is that I'm smitten
Even if the rest of the lyrics become sad
I'll still remember the songs we had
The harmony we have i could never regret
and the sexy tango we dance to i could never forget
So i'll continue singing you every note in my soul
with the hopes you'll keep making my songs whole
for your heart is the beat i need to hear
and your love is the melody that i hold dear.

The blood is flowing down my arm.
The pain is like thousands of knives instead of the one.
When I see all the red I feel beautiful.
For the very first time in my life I feel beautiful and relief
my soul is free.
But it don't last forever and tomorrow I need to feel the pain agian.
To feel the warmth from the beautiful red.

I was dancing down the hall,

but rather it is an orchard, bearing fruit
ripe enough to entice Eve
and as our mouths began to water a teacher stopped me

and I told her that the true sin
was a teaching about how Christopher Columbus

was depicted as some sort of savior of

ii. My mother used to tell me that the boundaries of what we found acceptable were like sports grounds. Some people play in stadiums, Olympic-sized swimming pools, anything goes. Other people play on a ping pong table, on the spot doing keep-me-ups. And just because something is a big deal to you, it might not be for them.
iii. You can’t make people be your friend. You can’t go up to the boy who always sits in the back row of class and say that you can see he has learned to listen, to absorb, and you can teach him how to expand, to express. But you can say hello.
iv. Promises of forever are futile, aren’t fair. You will grow and change course like a vine between two towering trunks. You will split and mend your seams in different orders like a river parted around a rock. You will not be the same as twenty-year-old you, thirty-year-old you, and neither will they.

Wanting HerAll I want to do is hold her.Wanting Her1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I want to hold her with her beautiful bird bones, her slim waist.
I want to see her light up and dazzle me with her smile.
To brush my fingers through her hair, and compliment her eyes.
I want to kiss her sweetly, with closed eyes and soft lips.
I want her to hold me.
To whisper and giggle into my ear.
I want her to run her fingers gently over my skin, feeling its softness.
To discover the raw me, without all the cover-up of outer beauty.
I want her to notice all my imperfections and scars and like me all the more.
To kiss me gently, then passionately, our bodies entwining, curves coming together.
To feel as if we are the only two people in the world,
and have perfection, even if only for a moment.
I want her, and her to want me.

You will look at the sky as a canvas to paint your heart
Feel raindrops ink your skin with poetry.
You will draw curves out of straight lines
You will make sense out of slant rhyme
Call empty space, a place to contemplate
And fill walls with kaleidoscope memories
You will inject beats in your veins
And get high on good music
You will dance to the pitter-patter of rain
and sing of melancholy and pain
You will taste ink in your first kiss
After which, you’ll ask the weirdest questions.
You will make a carbon copy of the intellectual conversations
You had on your first date.
You will see depth in his eyes
Depth, you’re ready to fall into.
You will love his every word-Truth or lies
For you will be a victim to metaphors and similies.
You will live in your tiny world of stories
And when someone out there, outside your own bubble
Of profound thoughts and fantasies
Share the same story, you let them write yours too.

And while I may have nothing special or interesting to offer you, if you'd like, I could write you a thousand and one love letters until the day I breathe my last. If you'd like, I could express how I feel about you in beautiful words and melodic letters, in ways you never thought was possible, and make your heart flutter over and over again for me.
And you know how my hands always shake whenever I get hit by inspiration and I feel like I need to write something as soon as possible before my heart explodes, so if you'd like, you could be that person to make my hands shake every time I see you. You could be my inspiration and the reason as to why my heart is capable of singing alluring words all the time.
If you'd like, I could seduce you all night with just words. Because I'm a writer, darling..
...and my words always speak louder than my actions.
ChemistryIn chemistry we learn about the elements:Chemistry3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Iodine, hydrogen, sodium and chlorine.
Formulae on the board; notes on my desk
I don't know what half of these things mean.
The period drags by, I'm daydreaming again
Doodling your name in a heart on my diary.
The teacher drones on, I don't hear a thing
My head full of another kind of chemistry...
This chemistry is explosive, corrosive, toxic ~
A spontaneous reaction, no catalyst required.
The two highly reactive elements that collide
One little spark and our hearts were on fire.
I could hear your runaway pulse as we hugged;
Could feel the sparks whenever we were close.
Joined by an ionic bond, form perfect compound
What causes this reaction, nobody knows.
So yes, we are studying chemistry in Science
But it helps when I see it happen every day.
Whenever you look at me, whenever you smile
I feel elements exploding inside, reacting away.

DistanceThey say distance makes the heart grow fonder. And I say bullshit. Distance splits the heart in two, then makes the two parts tear each other to pieces. It keeps you awake long after everyone else is asleep, just lying there thinking of that one who you're so far away from. It makes you hate yourself for being so obsessed with them, for getting so attached. It makes you lash out at the people around you because they're not that one who makes you feel so special. It drains all motivation, all emotion. It makes you try and push them away, so that maybe it'll hurt that much less. It makes you feel like you don't even have a heart, just an aching cavity in your chest that you didn't even know existed until it was emptied. It eats at you in the worst of ways until you're not sure of anything anymore. And more than anything, it pulls you. Tries to drag you back to that one who's so very far away.Distance4 years ago in Emotional More Like This
