I write...I write...
I write because it seems this keyboard and these letters are the only ones that understand me.
I write because I need someone to talk to.
I write because no one else cares to listen.
I bleed my feelings onto these pages because I don't know what else to do.
I write because I need a release of emotion.
When I write tears often fall.
I write when I need to figure things out.
I write to give myself a place to vent without judgement.
Sure, you may judge anyways but, I'd never know.
Not like if I was standing in front of you or talking to you on the phone and things got akward or you suddenly had to go.
Not that you would take the time to listen if I was, no one has.
I have even been to therapists that get PAID to listen, it seems they can't be bothered either.
Mistaking my words, twisting them or not even hearing them at all.
So I write.
It's the only thing I have.
It's the only way to share my voice.

I push you away when I only want you closer.
I am difficult and need constant validation.
I constantly question your motives because...
I can't read people.
I have been hurt so many times before.
I have trust issues.
But,most of all...
I don't feel worthy.
I ruin relationships regularly.
There is no limit to what I can destroy with my own insecurities.
I am complex.
Not in a good way either.
I am difficult to be around.
I often times feel uncomfortable in my own skin.
Even just making eye contact makes me feel weird.
I am someone who...
I don't even like.
I don't even feel like I know sometimes.
I think is an asshole.
I think is unworthy.
I have no respect for.
Why would anyone else want to be around me if even I don't?
I don't even know what to do anymore.
I don't know if I want to BE anymore.

and people don't remember
They don't remember the adventures
that we shared.
They don't remember
all the things we discovered
What if I woke up
and it was all a dream.
A dream where people liked me
and I was no longer unknown
Would all my friends be a lie
and the idea
just a thought
Would they even know who I was
Would all the things I've done
just be another thought
Would I still be alone in my castle
with no one else in sight.
Even though I wish it to go away

I am again alone.An old friend stopped by last night.I am again alone.2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She needed to talk.
More for someone to listen.
It made me feel important and purposeful to be the one to prop someone else up.
It meant a lot to me that she trusted me enough to lean on my shoulder.
I loved having someone come visit.
Now she is back home.
Now I am again alone.
For all of the joy I had in being able to help her when she needed it....
I now somehow feel even emptier.
I had gotten used to being alone.
Every night and day me and the cat.
I guess I forgot what it was like to have someone who genuinely cared what I had to say around.
I had become almost comfortable in my self induced isolation.
But,she came and reminded me what it was like to be around decent people...
I think I really miss it.
Because tonight I again just feel so alone.
I Don't Write For YouI Don't Write For You1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I don't sit and ponder how you're all going to take it
before I take the thought and emblazon it
I don't write for you but to you
so that you may take it in and look within
and right then perhaps create a world of your very own
and I will know that if it touched you
I have visited your home
and we have transversed over a shared moment of time
though yours was different than mine
but we are bound by a sense of a common thread
though not the same
we have all bled
we have exposed ourselves to people
and on our love they have tread
we have broken promises
and wished wicked things on others
we have regretted much but have always boldly carried on
we have all been demons and lovers
we have all run and hid under covers
we have done stellar things though no one cared to watch
and we were happy to know we did them anyway
our hearts have broken for someone we didn't meet who met defeat
we have held hands even in times of pestilence

A new experience in life
But this grew and there's no one to blame
Silly us, we didn't know the price
That this love would take
Defenseless, not wanting to break
Trying to bend without caving in
We had decisions to make
Which cause the chaos to begin
Leading us to the end

She adjusts her hair in the mirror, and runs down the stairs––
the love of her life is waiting nervously, he runs his fingers through his hair.
She stops at the last step, and can't hide her smile anymore––
his eyes widen as he sees her; he looks down shyly to the floor.
She giggles to herself, and walks closer to where he stands––
He looks at her as he takes a few steps and extends both of his hands.
She takes them softly in her own, and the feeling is suddenly mutual.
They need each other from that moment on. It's inevitably crucial.
10 years later they lay asleep, holding hands over the sheets––
He wakes up gently smiling. Grazes her feet as he watches her sleep.
He blows air on her face softly, and she lets out a few adorable sighs––
He lays on his side and caresses her face until she opens her eyes.
She whispers "hello" with a wink, as she begins to stretch out her arms––
he gives her a kiss

Don't "spell it out" for them. Make it hard to understand, the ones who are worth it decode it.

She Gave Up on LoveShe gave up on loveShe Gave Up on Love2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Threw it all away
Pretended to smile
But it wasn’t the same
People stared at her
Asked if she was okay
But it didn’t matter
All her feelings felt the same
She could feel nothing
And everything all at once
Sometimes the pain
Only felt like a plus
She lost all control
Of the life she once knew
So she tried to spare the change
Where the change was due
She let go of things
That were holding her back
Started to write as a hobby
A talent she didn’t lack
She woke up one morning
And knew everything was okay
For Time can heal all
If you wish it that way
And she smiles through the night
Watching the stars swallow the sky
A little happiness is worth more
Than anything money can buy

Never enough for you to care.....

But you know what they say.
It's always darkest just before the dawn.

who truly love each other.
They were there, sipping from the same glass
Two different straws.
It made my stomach jump-
It is too charming to see two people
who love each other very much.
They were holding hands,
both locked into each other, promising to never let go.
It made me smile-
It is so beautiful to remember
how two people loved each other too much.
I closed the photo album and fell asleep.
Last GoodbyeI opened my heart;Last Goodbye1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I put it in your hand.
I trusted you
to take care of it
just like I wanted
to take care of yours.
There it was, shivering
like a timid bird
willing to be tamed.
But your heart was closed
from the very start.
I gave you my all -
you gave me nothing:
closed doors and empty windows,
silence and no explanations.
Cold in the dark
I called in vain;
you only saw your own pain.
I gave myself to you -
you threw me away.
Why do you keep knocking
on my door again,
only to disappear
every time I open it?
Why do I keep running
after the shadow of a hope
that I no longer desire?
This was the last time
that I wrote to you,
the last time you didn't reply,
the last time you made me crawl for you.
This is the last good-bye.

Just listen for a second.
I think that you're amazing.
Not just you,
But who you really are.
What I see underneath.
Sure you can be mean sometimes.
But I've seen you be sweet.
I'm not blind.
And your looks are perfect
No I'm not saying you are the most beautiful
Or the most handsome person in the world.
I'm saying you are perfect.
Your eyes can hold a gaze for hours.
Your smile can draw anyone away from the world.
Your laugh can brighten up anyone's day.
And your personality can make anyone fall in love.
I wish I could tell you that in person
But this poem must suffice
Because where you are is a mystery
But who you are, isn't.
Friends of the PastShe was the girl who wanted to drownFriends of the Past1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
She started way too young
Eleven years old and already covered in scares
That child was just the beginning
He was the boy who couldn't take in any more
Everything was always his fault
He met the girl, and tried to save her
But he was too late and took it out on himself
She was the one who was just done with it
She was waiting for her chance to go
She met the girl, and tried to save her
But she was gone before she could do any good
She was the one who took advantage of the poor girl
Used her till she was nothing, then moved on
The girl tried to help her, but was too late
Did she deserve what she got?
He was the one who cared too much
And that made him angry
Everyone got what they wanted, but not him
They were alone in their misery together
All these people came through the girls life
And one by one they left
Eventually all that was left was the first and the beginning
Now even that has gone

It's that weird, sinking feeling where you think you're going crazy
You know pain?
It's that awful, searing feeling where you want to die
Know what happens when those two are mixed together?
It's gonna be one heck of a ride if they do
But everyone has gone through the troubles plenty of times
Many have survived the pain and stood strong
You there, yes, you.
Stop crying and lift your chin up
Sweetie, you're perfect in my eyes
You're going to be fine because I'm here for you
He broke your heart? That's okay.
She stole him away from you? That's okay.
You can love me instead.
Don't lose the will to live just because of love and pain
Love is not easy to find nor easy to obtain
But once you grasp it, you'll be in a world of paradise
You'll be happy and you'll never frown
I promise you I will not let you down
But before you get started on this
Promise me you'll never do that again

There's something very tragic about your life passing you by…I refuse to accept that's the way it goes, period.
It's up to us, up to living in the moment and not taking life for granted, it's about doing what you feel is right in that particular instant in your life, with no regrets.
Don't just accept everything as it is, and think that it's as good as it's going to get, search… keep searching, you have life to find. It's better to die searching, than to go idly… fooling yourself into thinking you have found all you can.
Don't feel like the end is near, stop looking at death as a termination of who you are, there's actually no need to think about the end, ever… you're not there yet, so why waste the time your alive and well, thinking about a possibility, that you know nothing about?
