Love: is not easily forgottenAnd you.
You broke my heart and,
displeased with the results,
you scattered the pieces and
ground them under your uncaring heel.
Yet I loved you.
I remembered the sweet things
you poured in my virgin ears.
The quiet moments beneath the sunset
or riding through the summer mountains.
Just you and I.
And I loved you.
Though I cried a thousand
tears and begged you not to leave,
promising to write,
promising to return,
promising to love none but me.
You left me.
Each promise you made and
each word you spoke
And beneath the loathing I
came to feel at your name,
beyond the lies you left behind,
passing by the broken promises.
In my heart of hearts
hidden from the world,
I loved you still.
Why did you never love me?

I lie awake at night and watch traffic lights outside my window shout RED into the peace quiet and occasional hazy rev of traffic. I lie awake and shiver through layers and wish to silent stars it wasnt winter, wish the nighttime cool wouldnt paint quite so many goose bumps on my skin and make my eyelids so cold. I lie awake at night and night-dream without sleep- about you and all your eyelashes and beautiful wordings.
I like the way your collarbone lies horizontally beneath your neck, resting on light shoulders. God must have hidden it beneath your peach skin in a hurry, because with hurried hands he didnt push it in quite far enough. I imagine him assembling you, I envisage your organs and elongated limbs before you were in a single piece, a mess-heap of portions and parts of beautiful. I would have liked to build you up my

Screaming at me,
clawing at every inch
of my body.
That little voice inside my head
sounding strangely like my own,
tearing me down,
from the inside.
Each hate-filled blow,
hits harder than the last.
Each self-inflicted cut,
hidden in shame,
nonexistent to the piercing eyes of others,
visible only in that lonely mirror reflection.
little dotted lines drawn
over every flawed bit of me.
Not pretty enough,
There is not a perfect inch
within my being.
Why can't I be beautiful?

from the crevices of her mind
because it's the only place
where innocence still remains;
and it is the only place
where she can think
without the corruption of the world plaguing her mind.

there is far too little time
to hold such bitterness in our hearts.
ii. the world would be a better place if
we found homes

home is where the heart is,
and my heart lies with you.

it’s okay to fall

How sweet the music sounds
That tinkles from the keyboard
And just how the mind surrounds.
The strongest heartfelt soul cry
That echoes without a word
Will cause the ache deep in the chest
Long after the last note is heard.
Oh, let this bliss endure,
Let it wash away my pain,
And let these tears that fall from my eyes
Be like a cleansing rain.
This sweet intoxication
Will never be the same,
Each haunting chord will bear away
A different part of my shame.
Sweet and sultry siren,
Your torture I'll endure
Until you take your final bow,
So lovely and demure.
I'll not forget this meeting
I've had with this, your kind,
I just hope that I will find one day
Your song's gone from my mind.

and you threw your last piece of my heart-
out the window.
100 miles an hour and i've become your cement,
poured and plasted;
these tears run thick.
Pryed away with the rusted spade,
you got your full house;
I've become the all in hand,

and dark ringed eyes,
she has a beautiful face,
but it holds lies.
A daughter born with a gift,
she stalks through the night,
with a power to kill all,
and even the son of light.
She is the dark you fear,
the one who lives in the shadows,
she can see through you,
and make you feel hollow.
Known for her art in shadows,
they call her Darkness,
a real treacherous girl,
a true sorceress.
She will cast a spell,
and eat at your soul,
fillng your mind,
with the dark that she loves.
your life is gone,
and shes satisfied,
with the job shes done.
First KissAt first the blushing rose does mournFirst Kiss6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's colour on my cheek,
It's hard to breathe as tightness
Squeezes my ribs until they creak.
My heart is beating far too loud,
Why can't he hear the sound
As he invades my private space
And with arms, me does surround?
And then his face is closing in,
His breath gusts 'cros'd my face
And though my knees are shaking,
I'm stuck here in my place.
So soft his lips are gracing mine,
Emotion is conveyed,
And through my closing eyes I feel
My whole life I've betrayed.
I want to shyly pull away,
Oh, this I just can't face,
And should someone come barging in,
No way could I keep grace.
But I can't turn away right now,
There's no way I could go,
Not only would I hurt him here,
But my own pain would surely show.
So what if I am insecure,
So what if I'm not you.
So what if I won't fade away?
I've proven that I'm not blue.
And though this moment's awkward,
And though I'm as red as a balloon,
I'll endure this torture
That I know will end too soon.

Gone but not lost
Eyes powerful and courageous
Regardless of the cost
A phoenix struck down
Only rises from its ashes with fiery brilliance
Not a single a moment of doubt
A flawless image of awe inspiring resilience
No damage is irreparable
Even when hope cannot be found
Nothing can shatter the spirit
Of a phoenix struck down

Its captivating silver light shines on my pale skin
I can feel its pull and hear its call
Allowing me to stand among the wild souls of the forest
Staring up towards the beautiful bright orb
My heart races and goose bumps form on my body
I feel strange, excited, and more alive
Without warning, my inner soul begins to emerge
Escaping this dry, pale cage that I call my human body
My bones stretch and reform under the light of the moon
Making my limbs more powerful and stronger than before
Nails lengthen and become claws, teeth grow and become fangs
A never-ending field of fur grows, covering my exposed and bare skin
I can hear clearly, see clearly, and smell clearly
A glorious howl escapes my throat and soars towards the moon above
With joy in my steps, I run through the untamable forest
The rugged ground feels good under my padded paws
While the cool breeze flows through my wild, untamed fur
Various sweet smelling scents fill this feral so
