AlgebraIm supposed to know this
Be smart enough to figure it all out
on my own
but Im still struggling
asking for help
from your ears that are blind
It hurts that I dont know this
that you move ahead
when I should stay.
I know Im not the only one
but you ignore it everyday
Youre angry when we fail.
I just dont get it
Im supposed to know this
Be smart enough on my own
But Im just drowning in calculations
trying to catch upon my own.

Screaming at me,
clawing at every inch
of my body.
That little voice inside my head
sounding strangely like my own,
tearing me down,
from the inside.
Each hate-filled blow,
hits harder than the last.
Each self-inflicted cut,
hidden in shame,
nonexistent to the piercing eyes of others,
visible only in that lonely mirror reflection.
little dotted lines drawn
over every flawed bit of me.
Not pretty enough,
There is not a perfect inch
within my being.
Why can't I be beautiful?

from the crevices of her mind
because it's the only place
where innocence still remains;
and it is the only place
where she can think
without the corruption of the world plaguing her mind.

The PianistFingers gusting o'er the keys,The Pianist6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
How sweet the music sounds
That tinkles from the keyboard
And just how the mind surrounds.
The strongest heartfelt soul cry
That echoes without a word
Will cause the ache deep in the chest
Long after the last note is heard.
Oh, let this bliss endure,
Let it wash away my pain,
And let these tears that fall from my eyes
Be like a cleansing rain.
This sweet intoxication
Will never be the same,
Each haunting chord will bear away
A different part of my shame.
Sweet and sultry siren,
Your torture I'll endure
Until you take your final bow,
So lovely and demure.
I'll not forget this meeting
I've had with this, your kind,
I just hope that I will find one day
Your song's gone from my mind.

and you threw your last piece of my heart-
out the window.
100 miles an hour and i've become your cement,
poured and plasted;
these tears run thick.
Pryed away with the rusted spade,
you got your full house;
I've become the all in hand,

and dark ringed eyes,
she has a beautiful face,
but it holds lies.
A daughter born with a gift,
she stalks through the night,
with a power to kill all,
and even the son of light.
She is the dark you fear,
the one who lives in the shadows,
she can see through you,
and make you feel hollow.
Known for her art in shadows,
they call her Darkness,
a real treacherous girl,
a true sorceress.
She will cast a spell,
and eat at your soul,
fillng your mind,
with the dark that she loves.
your life is gone,
and shes satisfied,
with the job shes done.
First KissAt first the blushing rose does mournFirst Kiss6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's colour on my cheek,
It's hard to breathe as tightness
Squeezes my ribs until they creak.
My heart is beating far too loud,
Why can't he hear the sound
As he invades my private space
And with arms, me does surround?
And then his face is closing in,
His breath gusts 'cros'd my face
And though my knees are shaking,
I'm stuck here in my place.
So soft his lips are gracing mine,
Emotion is conveyed,
And through my closing eyes I feel
My whole life I've betrayed.
I want to shyly pull away,
Oh, this I just can't face,
And should someone come barging in,
No way could I keep grace.
But I can't turn away right now,
There's no way I could go,
Not only would I hurt him here,
But my own pain would surely show.
So what if I am insecure,
So what if I'm not you.
So what if I won't fade away?
I've proven that I'm not blue.
And though this moment's awkward,
And though I'm as red as a balloon,
I'll endure this torture
That I know will end too soon.

Consuming my soul.
Ripping my heart,
Into small pieces.
I don't know how to escape,
From this living nightmare.
I'm holding on though,
Just for that one promise.
One day I'll be free.
You gave me all my faith.
When I couldn't breathe,
And it was taking over.
I can see the hope now.
It's within my reach.
Because of you I have the future.
And a way to believe.
If Time Were To StopIf time were to stop,If Time Were To Stop1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
What would you do,
Would you travel the world,
Or finish a book,
If time were to skip,
A million years,
Would you look on in awe,
Or cower in fear,
If time were to rewind,
Would you search for a way,
To go forward again,
Or accept your new life,
If you had control over time,
Would you stop it,
Or make it rewind,
Skip to the future,
Or leave it alone,
Time is limitless,
An empty place,
It exists in our minds,
And in our lives,
What would you do,
If you lost track of time,
And everything just flew by,
Like a movie,
Going much too fast,
Before your eyes,
Your life disappears,
And on your death bed,
You can only wonder why,
You Let The Time Fly By.
WerewolfAs the moon peaks over the highest mountain afarWerewolf8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Its captivating silver light shines on my pale skin
I can feel its pull and hear its call
Allowing me to stand among the wild souls of the forest
Staring up towards the beautiful bright orb
My heart races and goose bumps form on my body
I feel strange, excited, and more alive
Without warning, my inner soul begins to emerge
Escaping this dry, pale cage that I call my human body
My bones stretch and reform under the light of the moon
Making my limbs more powerful and stronger than before
Nails lengthen and become claws, teeth grow and become fangs
A never-ending field of fur grows, covering my exposed and bare skin
I can hear clearly, see clearly, and smell clearly
A glorious howl escapes my throat and soars towards the moon above
With joy in my steps, I run through the untamable forest
The rugged ground feels good under my padded paws
While the cool breeze flows through my wild, untamed fur
Various sweet smelling scents fill this feral so

Her cry, filled with pain.
Where is he?
Where did he go?
Didn't I see him? Just a minute ago?
He was here, and now he's gone.
And now a thought begins to dawn....
He's left her, he's moved on.
She loved him, he loved her too.
Or so she thought, and in her mind, a plan begins to brew.
She'll get back at him, oh yes!
She will, she'll make him pay.
She'll even kill.
He took her heart.
She took her life.
And now that man has lost his wife.
He didn't leave her, he hadn't moved on.
He was too late....and now she's gone.
Pitter Patter goes the rain.
And now his cry is filled with pain.

DistrustWhen life takes a turn for the worse,Distrust2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I can only feel upset.
I doubt my purpose in this world
And can only feel regret.
I don't see why I do such wrong.
Why do these demons come out to play?
I know when I commit these acts
That there is only hell to pay.
Why do I hurt those I love?
Why do I push them away?
They show me trust and show compassion
And prove that they want to stay.
But I doubt their sincerity.
I can see only harm.
Too many times I have been lured
By those who only show false charm.
So when it's true, I doubt it,
For only harm I see.
I bury those who show me love
And wish to set me free.
I'll die with my distrust.
I'll take it to my grave.
No one can help my empty soul.
There's nothing there to save.
Better yet, I'll take my own life.
I'll hurt my friends no more.
I'll distrust no one again.
There's nothing there worth living for.
No one in this life will miss me.
There was never anyone for me.
No one cares for the pessimist.
These cuts and blood will set me free.
