Let your heart holdYou'll find be at the bottomLet your heart hold11 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Watch at how my bones shake
Caged by the blazing bars of shame
Watch at how my heart awakes
Not to shatter under pressure
When your safety's on the line
And when your thoughts begin to fly
The way you act is how you're defined
I'm not the one to fight
When I'm at the head of the crusade
holding the beast that lay inside
with the worries that come cascade
I started to surender
when the light began to run
I was controlled by massacre
I had to chase the fading sun
When I'm on a faulter
Or on the end of dejection's blade
Walking a tightrope with one last thread
I still wont let my heart fade
I'm sent down onto my knees
Last words the last thing to shed
But yet when death is a charade
Backing down is the last thought in my head
Show me to the shipwreck
Watch at how my lungs collapse
Without a remedy or herb
Stay and watch my self-worth relapse
Ill never s
To the Feminist from the Battered ManIt would be so easy to wear my emotions on my sleeves, to wear my pain on my skin and display my feeling publicly for all to see like a newly painted canvass in public museum.To the Feminist from the Battered Man9 months ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
When I would think of their hands roaming my body, their words of hate and cruelty piercing my soul and their fist cracking my bones, I’d love it if I could just break down, tremble with tears and erupted into sobs.
Exactly like a …like a girl.
Don’t get me wrong ladies; you’re not all like this. I’ve seen you too when you’re corned, when you want only what you deserve…Justice. So you blame me for what another man did to you , besides, what one man does amplifies what we all do, does it not?
According to your standards it does.
So if I cry and scream, will you think differently of me? Will you think for just a second, that I’m human too? Will you finally believe me when I say that I’m not the man that hit you, not the man that raped your or beat you, not the

Take a look around.
Nothing in sight.
Not a path to be found.
I am alone.
Unsure what to do.
Everything is new
I'm so afraid.
I begin to cry.
I'm so lost.
Don't know why.
I need your strength.
Please help me.
Guide me though.
Give me eyes to see.
I'm still scared.
I wish I could hide.
At least I know.
You'll be at my side.
My madnessone day I tried to leave my madnessMy madness9 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I left behind the rage and sadness
I became a simple man
locked my madness there and then
I lived for years,completely sane
almost brought my death and bane
and then I yelled:"That's it!"
and ran and jumped into the pit
and with the darkest scream of glee
my madness have returned to me
as it brought color to my world
and I laid back as it had whorled
me and my madness both agree
that together we are free
alone we suffer too much pain
and so insane I shall remain.

But my mind is in agony
There's light all around
But my soul is a pit of darkness
The world is colorful
But my eyes see everything grey
I'm still alive
But I wish I was dead
Still, I'm here
Still, I struggle
Still, I offer you my hand
So we can escape this nightmare
GoodbyeGoodbye4 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm not upset or mad. Just go.
It's what you wanted.
I'm not keeping you here.
I never did.
But I'm not important enough for you to stay.
I never was.
Just don't come back.
Just keep walking and I'll walk the other way.
Until we're both far away from this place.
No goodbyes. Not a word. Just our silent cries and faded footsteps resounding.
And all the memories we leave behind can be buried in the dirt.
They're only made to make things worse.
We must cast them away for good.
And take our separate paths.
Goodbye, old friend.

"You've kept me waiting for quite a while."
He wonders "Shouldn't death you fear?"
"I've always thought that death was near."
The girl turned away to sink what she said.
"I have always felt I was already dead.
I float through this world without a care.
It's almost like I'm not really there.
So, no I'm not afraid of no longer being.
You can see that I'm already nothing."
Death just nodded. What she said was true.
"Regardless it is time for me to take you."
The girl stood up, all ready to go.
An afterlife she thought, wasn't likely to show.
Death did his duty, and took her away.
The girl finally had her awaited day.
An (Un)ordinary Love SongI know I am broken deep inside,An (Un)ordinary Love Song10 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Within my heart and within my mind.
Still you look at me like I’m a precious gem
And from it our love did stem.
How many nights have I wanted
To be with you, my thoughts daunted
By the fact of our society
And so I wished quietly.
“Tell me what it is like to love,”
I asked the stars from high above.
A twinkle was my answer
As I became infected with this cancer.
No amount of words can ever describe
The taste of the fruit of our love, so ripe.
There is no need for perfection
When you’ve already gained all of my affection.
And even when we grow old
And our love is only foretold.
No matter how we end,
I promise you will always be
In my memory.

A mistake, a mess
I'm made of scribbles and lines
I am your creation, or better known as,
A doodle created from your boredom
I have no eyes to see with
I have no ears to hear with
I have no mouth to speak with
I have no heart to feel with
Change me if you'd like
Tear the paper I call 'home'
But I'll just remain your creation made of graphite
And if you erase me, I won't mind
If you clear every trace of my existence, I won't mind
If you forget me, I'll try not to mind
But it's harder to say than to do
I am a drawing
Your mistake, your mess
That you created from your boredom
I am a drawing
On a scrap of paper
Forgotten by the one I loved

Well I tell you. It sucks why cause I was their on a 72 hourhold and they doctor made me stay after the 72 hourhold cause of me puking up food cause I told her that I used to be bulimic. So she and the other staff throughout I was puking on purpose when really I was stress puking. When my anxiety gets to high I puke. Anyways she told me after my 72 hourhold was up she say you can sign yourself in or I can take you to court and you be here for 60 days. I sign myself in and started crying and she asked why you crying? I say cause and walked off. I had a scab and outed it off. I wrote FU on the walls in blood cause I was mad at the doctor. And plus the only friend I made left. Later that day I was still self harming and the nurse gave me two white pills without even telling me what they were or used for or anything. She just hand them to me. What if I had a allergic reaction or something. She might not even care. Then I walked off and now on
