Blood slowly dying in my veins,
Exercise then fall to the floor,
Haul body up then work out more,
Chest growing tight and lungs are weak,
Head to tired for tongue to speak,
A mirror hanging in the hall,
What I would give to have it all,
With every bite of food I fail,
Body and spirit growing frail,
Silently dining from an empty plate,
Life measured out in height and weight,
Pangs of guilt as pride begins to grow,
Rib and hip bones clearly now show,
Each extra inch breeding despair,
Body and soul now running on air,
Staring as the mirror is now too tough,
Because nothing will ever be good enough.

I'm somebody you would hate.
I'm unwanted, a disgrace,
I am who I want to be, even if I know my fate.
You think I'm this way because I chose,
But you are wrong.
You think I want to be hurt like this every day,
Knowing there's no where I belong?
Everyday hurt because of words,
Everyday is a war for me.
Everyday yelled by my "loved" ones,
Telling me to be who they want me to be.
Never feeling safe, always crying,
Why should I feel guilty for being me?
People hate me because I'm being my self,
Everyday it feels like I'm dying, just let me be.
You kill people who are like me, just being themselves,
Why can't you just accept us?
Just because we act a certain way,
You think we are someone you can't trust.
Well fuck your opinion,
And fuck your faith!
Fuck your religious bullshit,
It's full of hate!
You think you can just treat people that way,
With out any guilt?
I hope you burn in hell,
For all the sadness you made me felt.
I've been hurt far too long,
I'm done w

Knowing what I did was wrong?
Finding out that I was weak,
When I was suppose to be strong?
Finding out the one you want to depend on
Is not lending a shoulder
Now that you can't trust the younger,
Will you go back to the older?
"You were suppose to be the dependable one!
You were suppose to be the one who would take care of me!"
Now that you know,
That I'm not what you wanted me to be.
Well your baby girl is gone,
And your smart daughter is threw,
I'm not the same girl,
You used to knew.
So you can yell at me,
You can call me stupid or an eye sore,
You can call me weak,
Cause I've heard it all before.
So lean on your other daughter
Or your son,
Lean on your wife,
Cause I'm done being leaned on!
Don't expect me to be back,
Cause I'm done being a mistake,
Being here everyday,
No more stress I can take!
So father do you hate me now?
Knowing that I'm not strong?
Knowing that I'm a screw up?
Knowing that I can't be depended on?
Cause even though you're yelling a

This is Not a Happy Obsession This is Not a Happy ObsessionThis is Not a Happy Obsession5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm walking on a road that's awfully chilly, and my
temperature will not stop fluctuating
because I am not at ease, no,
but in fact at disease, that currently of my body as well as my mind constantly,
for I've seen many a traumatic thing in my life- perhaps
not even much so, but with sounds in the background
that may have made me think thus.
This leads to the potential end of my living sanely
As it may be that I grow frail and insubstantial under the possession
Of what they call a phobia. Emetophobia, lilapsophobia,
phobiaphobia, rid my ears and memory of these!
What adds to the weight of my (and I repeat) 'potential' doom
Is the fact of having multiple irrational fears,
Which some say are a stupid thing and shall only fade away with time, but in fact
The Opposite is Bound to Happen. Many, on the other hand, have been able to rid
Themselves of this Devil, this Lucifer which attacks me in times of illness, around others, on television! Ev
Hate Me... Please~~Hate Me... Please~~Hate Me... Please4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
I want to scream at you
Even though you didn't do anything
I want to sew your lips together
when you happily smile at me
I want to kick you down
After you've picked me up
I want to shut your eyes forever
So I don't have to see them glint with hope
I want to make you cry
When you dry up all my tears
I want to tell you that I hate you... but I can't
Because you love me and you would die if I left
So the thing I want most in the world
Is for you to hate me
Maybe then I wouldn't feel so bad
Who needs friends?Who needs friends?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A good enemy is better than a best friend
A good enemy can't betray
A good enemy won't go away
A good enemy will be there at the end
A best friend will fail
A best friend tells you what to think
A best fiend pushes you to the brink
A best friend will bail
A good enemy pushes you forward
A good enemy tests your steel
A good enemy makes you real
A good enemy seeks no reward
A best friend makes demands
A best friend always judges
A best fiend holds grudges
A best friend won't withstand
With an enemy you know they hate you
With a friend you are not sure
To an enemy you can be true
When they run you through
It won't be from behind
A friend won't just let it end
Tell you they never liked you
Every story you tell they bend
Every wound you mend
They inflict two more
With enemies like these who needs friends

I'm sorry for screaming and running astray,
And I'm sorry for crying all night long,
It's a terrible thing I wish I could just throw away,
But it's here, in me, and there's no denying what happens.
I can't control myself, I can't stop my actions,
And when there's no way out, it seems as if I've died.
Stop, breathing, stop bleeding, stop draining me,
It's leaving me cold and empty,
There must be another way, there has to be another way,
Save me, love me, keep me, don't lock me down,
I promise, I still love you, every moment of every day,
Just take this from me, take it and throw it away...

Gentlemen, today I speak to you
To convey an issue that has plagued the core of our community.
For so long have we been considered second-class;
To this day there are those who still believe that we are not artists.
But today is not about freedom, today is about honour,
Because there are many writers that still seek to shame us all...
I speak of those individuals, who take art from others.
Covers, photos, paintings, digital art, anime and manga.
It matters not where you draw your source from,
But every action impacts upon us as a community.
BECAUSE I AM A WRITER!
When I craft my works, when I write each and every line,
I paint using expression; metaphors are my colours.
The words are my brush and each and every rhyme is my medium.
I do not ask to be considered an artist, but I do ask to be considered.
BECAUSE I AM A WRITER!
For someone who practices his craft day and night,
Painstakingly learning how to use each and ever
