Running, Jumping. Laughing. Playing.
Nobody seems miserable.
They are, on the inside.
Cant you see, what theyre trying to hide?
Mistakes that theyve made? Tears that theyve cried?
Pain thats been felt? The fear the lies?
Hatred consuming their everyday lives?
Most likely not, because youre trying to hide-
Mistakes that youve made-Tears that youve cried-
Pain that youve felt-Your fear your lies-
Hatred consuming your everyday life-
Now do you see, that behind the
Theres just a scared little person, inside?
The Boy Who Owns the UniverseSometimes, I like to thinkThe Boy Who Owns the Universe6 years ago in Surrealism More Like This
Not by chance,
Events half-brought on by our
Half-brought on by luck,
The whole universe is in a jar
Owned by a giant child
All of the stories for everyone.
All of the planets
Are little marbles
Hung on string
And glitter stars
The nebulas are dust bunnies
Glowing, bursting with color.
And we are tiny specks of dust,
With a little touch of magic
Tiny specks that make
Even tinier things
On a particularly blue-y green marble.
The little giant child calls
(He meant to call it Earl,
After his uncle, but he can't write
And guess what?
Because this gigantic Junior
Writes them in
He hides under his bed.
P.S. This universe was made
Because it was Junior's science project.
He got a B+.
Life is ..Life is …Life is ..9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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.
LifeMy heart is falling,Life11 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Knees are shaking,
Eyes are wondering,
Mind is crawling,
Back of the line just like always,
No ones cares,
My eyes are bawling,
Life can bring sadness, joy, or pain,
But all i know is that it can stain,
Stain your heart and stain your soul,
Can change your idea of all you know.
For YouFor you who only see your smile in pictures,For You6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
like memories of a past you that don't exist,
don't forget your muscle has a memory too--
and the right compliment can make past new.
For you who only feel a love in daydreams,
or memories of the one that fell through,
don't forget your heart is a muscle too,
and it remembers just as easily, if you want it to.
For you who only draw through projects,
like those you were encouraged to in school,
Don't forget that there lies talent there,
and unused it doesn't dry up, but pools.
The tendency to store past away in memories
is so damning to the future in your mind--
and if you dust off talents you thought lost,
you don't know what other Presents you could find.
