what is it?
Its been said,
and it hurts.
The ones that lost a parent,
there heart was torn away....
What is she to do?
The one that changed to home schooling...
She has problems with friends.
Now she cant find any......
The one who's friends are now doing drugs,
There losing close friends......
They change to,
smoking and alcohol
The one that is alone most of the time.
He is only known mostly threw the net....
Other than that he's really unknown....
What's he to do?
The one that almost died.....
I don't have to say any more with this one.
They are in so much pain,
it hurts to think on.
i guess the question is.....
Why all this.
Will it end......
Will I or they live,
to see an other day?
Its way to hard!!!
It seems we are waiting to die.
Why, you ask your self,
the tear roles down your face.
Looking at the ground,
you never knew what you missed

Life is the space between your ears,
Life is the song that no one hears,
Life is the place that only you know,
Life is the grass growing through snow,
Life is the touch of a lover's hand,
Life is a castle melting in sand,
Life is the laugh that's stuck in your throat
Life is a poem that god wrote
Life is the shiver on a warm night,
Life is like death, only not quite.

My heart broke today
Shattered when it crashed to the floor
I know I should pick up the pieces
But they look so beautiful lying there
I walk along my windowless house
The jagged pieces cut my feet
And blood stains my earthen floor
I can't keep standing
I drop to my knees
Feel the crystalline pieces pierce
Crawling now, I'm almost to the door
To level ground with soft green grass
Drop to my stomach and recoil in pain
Tears bouncing off my blood-red kaliedoscope
I'll not make it to the door now
I'll die a meter from the exit, among my own shattered remains
Why didn't I just pick them up?
I Hate Life When...I Hate Life When...9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When you have no choice
But to lie –
Especially to your friends
When people cannot accept you
For who you really are,
And you have to continue the act
Just for them.
When your darkest secrets
Are discovered by your friends --
The ones you never wanted to know about it
In the first place.
When you think someone loves you,
Then they go and let you down.
When people think
They know best for you,
When all you want to do
Is follow your heart.
When someone acts
Like your friend,
Like they really care about you,
Then the next day
They go and bitch about you
Behind your back.
When two people,
Who both like each other,
Won't go out with each other.
When the person you care for most
Will never know.
When your family,
Your own flesh and blood,
Turn against you.
Maybe water is thicker than blood?
When people make judgements
On your appearance
Instead of on the way you act.
When others cannot,
And do not,
Listen to your opinions
And simply think that your views
Do not matter.
The Scent of Vampyre TearsHe held me in his arms. I felt warm, safe, and happy I was with him. He kissed my lips gently. His lips were so soft, yet so cold. I placed a hand under his jaw and returned his kiss. He smiled and I could feel his canines bushing against the corners of my mouth. A quivering sigh escaped my lips and he laughed quietly. Tired already? He placed his hands on my lower back, holding me closer. I rested my head on his chest and his head rested on the top of my head.

I want to kill you with a thousand kisses.
And suffocate you my lust.
Hold you hostage in my arms forever,
And by no means ever let you go.
I want to drown you with eternal love.
But I end up burning with fiery passion.
I want my lips to poison you with selfless venom.
Can you feel me spreading through your veins?
Killing all that you once were….
Leaving you with nothing but the pain.
I want to strangle you with the chains that bind our love to hate
And let my tears wash away the pain.
I want to stab an arrow through your heart
And awaken the emotions that you rarely show.
Emotions that lie deep inside,
Which only pain can set free.
The fire in your eyes burns with endless might.
And I wonder if they burn with hatred or passion.
I know the quicker the fire starts, the weaker you become.
I see your flaw, and being weaker I attack.
Words are my weapon,
They won't kill you, but they'll cut deep.
The fire quickly crumbles, leaving nothing but ashes.

in his eternal hell

The broken child
in a dark corner in his room
cringing from the screaming voices in the hall
knowing they will come for him
they always do
no solace in the dark
The angrey child lashes out
in a futile attempt to find someone
who will notice his hurt
and take him out of this reality
but theyll turn away
raging silently in his head
The quite child holds it all in
the fear,the anger the hurt
for if he let them in
they would only tear him down
and bend them to their will
he must hold on to what little light he has
The wilted child craves
the tender touches that never comes
a sweet caress
from those who claim to care for him
if only the outside world only knew
but he suffers in silence
The hopeful child wonders
if the nightmare will ever end

I look at the stars and feel very small;
just a tiny consciousness.
But if I were as tall as a planet,
I would still be short in comparison to the universe.
I see a person twice my size
and I feel weak and fragile.
But if I were strong and powerful,
I would still not be invincible.
I see a painting by the hand of a genius,
and I feel inexperienced and ignorant.
But if I were the greatest artist alive,
it would not make me love what I do any more or less.
I see blood, running from the wound of another,
and I feel a chilling fear from deep within.
But if I walked this earth with bravery,
it would not make things less dangerous.
I see a baby, innocent and naive,
and I feel cynical and jaded.
But if I saw through untainted eyes all my life,
it would not make the world a better place.
I see a raindrop, tear of the sky,
and I feel ugly and unsightly.
But if I were as beautiful as rain,
it would not make me crystal clear inside.

SadRight now I sit and watch as sadness shows from more then one friend. I try to let myself be cheerful, but sadness spreads through me like a disease. Sad is what I feel when you are sad, it's what I feel because you feel the sadness through and through. I feel sad that I cannot help you. I feel as though I'm not a true friend. True friends should be able to fix things like this. To cheer you up even when you're hurting. I don't expect you to show me a smiling mask. I don't expect you to cheer up just for my benefit. I won't ask you to change just for me. I will hope and pray that soon, someday, your days will become brighter, happier. Like you once were. Happiness is what I wish for you. Both of you. Sadness is the disease that hurts, happiness is the only cure now. But where can you find the sun on a cloudy day? Try not to hurt, try not to be sad, but never show me a fake happiness. For there is no clear blue sky on a rainy day.Sad7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This

I need to tell you not to.
I need to say I am better than that
I need to say YOU are better than THAT
I need you to quit pretending nothing really happened
I need you to quit acting as if it was accidental
It may not have been premeditated
But it sure as hell was no accident
We did not plan that night to go there
But your touch was with purpose then
It may not have been a good idea
Rather your words were true and full of meaning
We did not decide to have it happen
Rather we did allow it to continue the night
I should silence my inner demons
I should want there to not be a scene
I should tell him I am sorry
I should pledge him my loyalty
I should ask him punishment and forgiveness
I should tell him, he is the better friend
The hero should need to fight the darkness and triumph OR die trying.
When we're finding love ҉ ~♥~ ҉When we're finding love5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It was one of those mornings
when you get halfway out of bed and then
then you think of what you'll have to deal
with when you're all the way out
and then you're crawling back under the covers.
I wonder if a person who jumps
(for suicidal purposes)
regrets it halfway to the bottom.
I'm more the kind of person who either
and says fuck this, fuck this,
I'm not dealing with this shit
or gets up
and says okay, I'm ready.
Everytime we went somewhere together
people would assume that we were dating and
smoking pot and then making love in the back of his
It was kind of like not meaning to stab yourself
but doing it anyways, because you're
too stupid to notice it might happen,
that it always happens.
It would be different if I didn't know what
stole the youth of your eyes, if I didn't know
what took the white out of your shirt
and what put the crease of your frown there.
Lies"I love you"Lies5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
One of the many that I believed
Over and over were they told
I swallowed every one of them
Never bothered to call poison control
The lies were my fuel
Calling each one to my mind
I lived on them
It was the drug that got me through the day
I didn't realize what you were doing to me
What I allowed
I became addicted
To this priceless drug
The poison apple you gave me
I took it gratefully
It bound me to your side
You carried out the next step,
To your plan,
As you planned,
You disguised demon,
The poison pulsed through my viens
The only thing I lived for was
You took it away
Leaving me broken on the floor
Leaving me alone
To face the horrors of my mind
You lied to me
And I, the foolish girl, trusted you
The poison still haunts me to this day
I hate you for lying
I hate you for using me
I hate you for leaving me....
I miss you
That is why I yearn
To be lied to again
Put me under your spell
Make me believe
That this is not the end
Whisper your lie

I wish that I could cry.
Everything that happens to me
gets stuck deep inside and
the only thing I can do
is try to hide away from life.
Im missing the energy that keeps
me moving on, and keeps me alive.
So tired, but sleep never comes
to force me to shut my eyes.
Lost in the end of time,
wondering around, seeing the bodies
of those that were there before I.
So many frustrations stuck in my head,
no way to let it out, and
no one to help me find
a way to release what is
slowly killing my mind.
Everyone once in a while I
wish that I could die, but
I dont because of the things
that make my life seem fine.

What is freedom?
Some say that it's the will to do anything without restraints....
Others say that it's an excuse to escape responsibility....
While I say that it is to be free....
But from what?
Who pays the price of freedom?
Some say that being free from bondage bears no price....
Others say that no one will shelter you afterwards....
While I say that it is eventually granted....
But by who?
Where does freedom come from?
Some say that it comes from the will to be free....
Others say that it is born from chaos....
While I say that finding it can lead you freely....
But to where?
Why do I even desire freedom?
Some say that it's natural to dream about it....
Others say that yearning it is foolish....
While I say that it's too complicated to understand....
Even if these questions were to be answered
Would they be the solution to gain freedom?
I am a like a canary that yearns to be free despite living in a cage....
Is freedom out of my reach or is there a chance to grasp

He sent me loveHe sent me love through a package in the mail. His lustrous old pocket watch, dutifully polished every night before he retired to his bed of origami butterflies- folded carefully with decorative paper by nimble fingers. He loved this watch like he loved me. A keepsake from a summer in New York City, when he fell in lust with everything beautiful under the fiery blaze of the sun. That summer he changed into the desperate romantic I met at the public library, clumsily sliding Poe into Cummings' place on the shelf. I could almost imagine his vain attempt- if I shut my eyes- to string that pocket watch to the leg of a carrier pigeon with a bright red ribbon. Sorry I had to settle for the post, he'd say (he saw his life like abstract art perpetually in progress; painting until his heart stopped beating and his own strokes were no longer mystifying in his eyes). He's won over more lonely, poetic souls than I could count.He sent me love3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
