For NowDo not look at me;
I am covered in disgrace
Languid like the taste of your lungs
Your breath on mine,
Forevermore and forever always
Entangled fingertips, we are lost
Waiting for the clock to turn it's hands
Frozen in time until you return
Safe and sound into my arms
Until then we are nothing
But two people
With broken hearts.

I Find Strength In My StrugglesSometimes I-I Find Strength In My Struggles1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I don’t think I can take it
The unrelenting pain
The never ending fights
The choked, almost silent, sobs at night
I wonder when I’ll break
My chest feels like it’s in a knot
All my emotions swimming in my eyes, running out of my nose, clogging my throat
And I cannot breathe anymore
Sometimes I think that one of these days I won’t be able to take it
That maybe I’ll just break, I’ll bend so far in ways I’m not supposed to that I’ll shatter into thousands of unrecoverable pieces
No… I remember that I am strong and these thoughts-
They slink back into a box which some part of me unlocked.
A Game Of Pretend Behind those closed doorsA Game Of Pretend1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
we escaped our realities
Yes, we were lost,
hoping never to be found.
We sat together and watched the world go to ruins
we both carried fear in our hearts,
knowing very well that our time would end
knowing of the tragedies ahead,
but in that room
we both sat
this expanse became our hidden sanctuary
somewhere across the abyss
we laughed and said this space was "the safest place there is"
Like children fighting ignorance
we both knew
as we spoke those words
in between the spaces of our laughter
that there was truth in this pretend
We prayed softy under our breaths
Curiosity had flown away
This bliss was our god given gift
and watched the world go round
We, were the forbidden children.

to fill the cracks that splinter across my eyes.
I can’t make heads or tails about what lies beneath;
all I see are fragmented facts scribbled on the glass.
Bits and pieces of me scatter across the floor;
the threads between them cut and gone,
leaving me bare naked with nowhere to hide.
I stare at the imprint of myself,
and all the sins within come to the forefront.
I fall, shaking to the ground,
trying to gain my bearings against the rising tide.
Such a pity I could not gain ground in such a bitter storm,
and I have to wonder who is really to blame.

The Story Of A Flower In WinterThis is the story of a girl who lost it allThe Story Of A Flower In Winter2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Whose words cannot describe how she felt before
Just drowning on air, suffocating on necessities
Waiting on something, anything to pull her up
Waiting for a god, or an angel at best
A fantasy of a man with golden brown hair
Fair skin and an angel like face
Passionate love, forever wrapped in lust
A cloak of down, with the power to fly
This poor girl, she so fell hard
Those strong arms lifted her up so high
She lost the moon while counting the stars
In her own way, she knew she would fall
Climbing up higher, gasping for air
Angel and human were never meant to be
Creating this monster that caresses her
Drink her in, blue eyes sliding over her body
Hands taking in her delicate form
Wings so strong, with one simple pulse
Even the stargazers fall down sometimes
Even the stargazers loose sight of the moon
How much does it take for a stargazer to bend
Bend to the point that it tends to break
This creature cast out of heaven
Tries to take his place i

forming words and phrases too
it should be some simple task
to be able to describe you
You are so challenging
to describe in a normal way
even goddesses and angels
like me, are at a loss for what to say
Your beauty is intoxicating
it's not healthy for me
your speech may be degrading
but I still hang on every word you breathe
The rapids of gold
that is your braided hair
could keep me sane when I'm old
but only if you're still there
You are on my mind
every single day
I couldn't imagine spending my life
any other way
I can't tell you why I fell in love
but it was because of you
and you are too difficult to describe
so understand that my feelings are too

When all is said and done
When she is raised accordingly
Until the setting sun?
Will she want to see me?
With tears that kiss her eyes
Will she even hear of me?
Please lord, don't let me cry
Will she want to see me?
As she begins to age
Will he even speak of me,
or leave me at the gate?
Will he tell his new angel,
about the one he lost?
Will he tell her happily
That the path I chose was Wrong?
Will she still want to see me?
If he fills her head with lies
Will she ever hear of me?
Will the hero in him die?
Will I ever get to see her?
This little girl I don't know
Will I ever get to comfort her,
from the monsters and the cold?
For now it stays a mystery,
if I'll ever see her face
If that little girl I long to know,
will ever call my name.

Doesn't think I exist
In the dusk of life,
When I try to think of me
At the time ingenuity
And artfulness waste away,
And the body is propelled
By pills and machines,
Locked away where
People don't have to think
About you until it's time
To pay the monthly bill,
I think it's time for me
To hurry up and
Accomplish the unthinkable,
So that I will be
Immortalized in my youth,
Because I am

In love with a BipolarIn love with a Bipolar3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is it wrong
For me too wish;
To take it away
For at least a day?
It wont seem too let you go
Whats it going to take,
To absorb your pain?
If I could take it from you,
Cut it down;
Make it mine
You'd never have to experience the pain
If I could
If I only could
Bipolar is the worst
Its leaving you ready to burst
No I don't understand what your going through
But I try, I try
I don't understand how your feeling;
I don't understand whats happening;
I don't understand what too do;
I don't understand but I want to
All I know is the wanting, to take it away
All I know is that you're in constant apprehension
All I know is that this thing wont stray
I try to comprehend
Whats it's suppose too be
Does it have a face?
Can I touch it, sooth it down?
Or could I give it a chase?
but surely it must have a name
Chaos, it comes to mind
because its everywhere
comes out of nowhere at times
By just loving you
By just knowing you
You say that this is what I'm getting into,
