Life goes onLife Quotes
~Life is too short.
grudges are a wasted of perfect happiness.
Laugh when you can, apologize when you should and
let go of what you can't change.
Love deeply & forgive quickly.
Take chances, give everything and have
no regrets. Life is too short to be
unhappy you have to take the good with the bad.
Love what you got and always remember what you had.
Always forgive but never forget.
Learn from your mistakes, but never regret.
People change, and things go wrong,
but always remember...
life goes on~
Care?People starved.Care?9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
People screaming, people dying.
People singing, people lying.
It's not enough.
But life, it's tough.
The world's in shambles.
But we're not bothered.
The world's disaster,
Not our problem.
We see our faults,
Acknowledge our demons.
And still we do nothing,
Politics and religion
Hypocrites and Conformists,
We all are.
Denial is a screen
We hide behind it everyday
But the screen is glass
It's clear, with cracks.
We really do
We just don't try,
Care.Care.10 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
When daddy drinks,
When daddy lies,
When daddy screams,
And makes me cry.
When daddy throws me down the stairs,
It means he cares,
Because he's there.
When mummy hits,
When mummy tries,
To cut my arm,
And makes me cry.
When mummy drops me down the stairs,
It means she cares,
Because she's there.
I have a house,
Thats not a home.
The love that was,
I've never known.
So out the door, down the front stairs,
And if they care,
I won't be there.
What Love IsI was just a lonely girlWhat Love Is4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Only a few months past sixteen
But still naïve
Wishing for the kind of romance
You see in the movies.
He was a lost soul I thought I could save
He made me feel special
For the first time in my life
He needed me
I never realized what a burden that could be
And so I told him
'I don't know what love is
But I know what it's not.
It's not living life on a leash
Or living life to please.
I'm no one's property
I belong only to me
Love is supposed to build you up
Not tear you down
I may not know what love is
But I know it's not you and me
That boy's ways left me broken inside
I fell into the arms of a friend
Started to feel hope again
It felt so good to feel worthwhile
Oh, I fell hard and fast
And so it didn't last
I had seen the light of good in him
No matter how cold he might be now
I couldn't get it go
I was lost in heartbreak
Until I could see
I don't know what love is
But I know what it's not
It's not letting someone walk all over you

The Many Attributes of HersHer WelcomeThe Many Attributes of Hers2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She welcomed me in a place so distraught,
yet her welcome refurbished the hut so luxurious.
Such bounties are for those who earn them;
a lucky fool I am to be close to her embrace,
for she was the basil for my ailing;
the wings for my flight;
the breath for my life.
But it was such;
she was blessed a good heart for little wealth,
an enchanting presence for a humble abode,
an inquisitive mind for little education;
she was balanced yet the scales tipped
such that life was a fraught belonging.
But dismayed not, a blissful existence;
her smile like the sparkling stars
that leave you in wonder why the Almighty
created something so beautiful yet out of grasp.
But today I mean to grasp those lights
right out of the sky and clasp to my heart.
She was lonely, but then again so are the stars.
Thus I wish to pull her down to escape that prison.
She is an ocean, exposed yet hidden;
calm yet thrashing;
a blue veil, veiling all the colors
Who I am."You should be ashamed"Who I am.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I am not sorry for I am.
I am not sorry for what or who I can never be.
I'm not made to please everyone around me.
I'm not the type to make c o n g a t i o u s smiles or fits of laughter.
Don't act or treat me like I am.
See me. Not for who I could be pretend be,
but for who I am on the inside of the shell.
I'm rough, brash, cocky, sophisticated.
[on the outside]
I'm okay, weird, misunderstood.
[on the outside]
But on the inside,
I am like a little girl wanting to play,
only hoping not get hurt by a treacherous smile.
Who I am is the girl who comes off far to strong,
in fear she will be forgotten.
Who I am is a girl who is a know-it-all,
because she has a lot to learn.
Who I am is another person who hides behind a smile and promise of "fine" or "okay",
in doubt that no one would care anyway.
Who I am is a person who speaks without fear,
because one day, this voice will be heard in the crowd.
That. Is. Who. I. Am.

Friends I Can't Live WithoutThe razor is my escapeFriends I Can't Live Without3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
When I feel most at home
The one time that I don't feel
Left out and all alone
The presence of my blood
Is all the friend I need
Besides my handy shiny razor
Used to make myself bleed
The sight of my flowing blood
Instantly causing me comfort
A spell falls over me
That I've constantly been under
My razor lies beside me
As I lay my head against the wall
Quietly I sit awaiting
For the last drop of blood to fall
When I'm all drained out
I put my friends away
In that secret hidden spot
Where they surely won't stay
If I ever lost my friends
I would never feel alive
If I couldn't release my pain
I would die on the inside
A SecondA smile is fleeting,A Second4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
but please, for me
a second if you will?
A furrowed brow
and a glum frown,
Grab my hand,
if you can?
Tears streak down your face
like rain across the sky.
Each splashing to the ground,
and echoing endlessly between
The trees sway and shake and twist in agony,
as thunder rolls over head.
The wind is playing a tune
and I only wish these words
would harmonize each note
so you could hear it--
for just a second.
The Truth to LifeDo we have a purpose, is a question one will often askThe Truth to Life10 years ago in Open More Like This
Is there a higher power out there, some greater task
The truth will hurt many, not only a few
People have a hard time dealing with that which is true
There is nothing greater that watches your back
Deal with it, stop crying and build your own stack
You are responsible for the life that you lead
It is not someone else's fault when you don't get what you need
If one wants the stars, they must be grabbed by one's own hand
Nothing in life is freely given there is no promised land
So the question remains, why are we here
For those without faith, the answer is painfully clear
We live only for today and if we are lucky the morrow
To us there is no afterlife, but that brings us no sorrow
Self improvement is our main goal and it starts in the here and now
We refuse to be filled with illusions of grandeur and get fat off them like a cow
The best of us seek improvement in every area we can
Without the proper balance of self there can be no co

I can taste our sun-colored passion,
dappled sunshine lies like discarded piano keys,
stretching across the wintry yards of cotton seascapes,
You are that brave spring to my darkest winter,
don't deprive me of your promise...
I plucked the sun from its golden boughs in the sky
tossed the citrus bounty into the boiling water in my head
Such a heady concoction of acidity and sunshine
I wish to devour it whole
watch my teeth glimmer in the semi-permanence of night
I would be remembered as the man who ate the sun
I wish to conquer and conquer the untold depths of my heart
Something about you gives me that silvery armor of a child
when you are around I could conquer the world in innocence
Something about you dips my heart in the sun
combustible in every fiber of every muscle
drown me in ether
I want to exude imminent explosion
and when you bare your teeth in breath-stealing smile
I will be your personal fiery g
A titanic kind of love.He could pick you apart like your favourite pastry; find every glob and sugared jewel, those cinnamon swirls you buried from view. His fingers peeled you down from crown to feet and he did it so tenderly you wouldn't even notice until you slipped on your own skin, amazed that you'd been naked in his presence. He knew you never watched the ground as you walked, eyes always on the sky and possibilities above. It was a hushed undressing, a stripping of water-based paints you thought were permanent. A beige canvas dripping wet, colours pooling on the floor, you'd shades trickling from your eyes and he told you he thought blank pages were beautiful because they were splattered with promise.A titanic kind of love.4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

-Lock and Key-My heart is heavy with unwept tears-Lock and Key-4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
My mind is plagued by foolish fears
I don't know where to turn
I'm looking for a safe place to run
but there's nowhere in sight
The world is spinning around me
Everything is a blur
Is this what I get for trusting again?
I'll keep my heart under lock and key
They'll never know what they cannot see
Even as I fall apart again
So I'll keep my heart under lock and key
Never again feeling this pain that fills me
My heart is safest when it belongs to only me
Oh-oh, under lock and key
Like a message in a bottle
Lost on the seas
Forgotten and unseen
Living life in a waking dream
Unable to bear such an empty reality
But life loses meaning as you cling to fantasy
Disconnected from the world around you
I've kept my heart under lock and key
They don't know what they cannot see
Even when I fell apart again
Yeah, I've kept my heart under lock and key
Been numb for far too long
I want to feel something inside
I need to feel alive
Oh, been under lock and

You don't talk to me
I thought that you said,
No matter what happens,
we'll always be friends.
You're going to let this
stand in the way of our friendship?
What the hell?
It looks like I misjudged you.
But I can't say
that you don't have an excuse
for your actions.
You said that you loved me.
I said that I could not return your feelings.
Wouldn't it have been
more hurtful if I lied
and told you I loved you back?
there was some way
to soften the blow.
And I was too much of an idiot
to know how.
Do you blame me?
I'm sorry, I really am.
But you were the first person
who ever told me that.
I just didn't know how to react.
I'm so sorry.
You must be hurting
so much right now.
And me, near you
that would probably bring you more pain.
So I'll just stay away
and hope that one day,
we can smile at each other
like we did before.
Discovering Who I amI have been doing a lot of thinking this past week about a number of things but mainly about who I am. I am a rock chick, a country girl, someone who will listen, someone you can have crazy fun with because you know everyone is crazy even if they do not admit it. I am a 24 year old white girl, who is 5' 3" an average build. I have blue eyes, wear contacts, my hair is dirty blond. I like anime/manga, I like to sing, read, write and draw. I am all this and more. To most who know me I am a girl and I like guys. That is not a lie but that is not the whole truth either. I am a girl who likes guys but I am also a girl who likes girls. Saying I am straight is not correct although that is what I commonly refer to myself as. Yet saying I am lesbian is not entirely true either. It took awhile for me to understand but I like both guys and girls.Discovering Who I am7 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

My poem to you.I met you through a new friend,My poem to you.3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I was so shy and scared then,
not really knowing what to do,
I was so lost, and there was you.
I denied our attraction, 'cause I always have,
but you always seemed to make me laugh,
doubting my feelings, I just didn't know,
what I wanted, and where to go.
But since the beginning, you took my hand,
guiding me so I would understand,
that you'd be there, every step of the way,
"I'll break your shyness", is what you'd say.
So I let you in a little more each day,
you still made me laugh (I'm still smiling away),
you talked to me more, than the friends you knew,
even though I was the outsider within our group.
I 'rejected' your hugs many a times,
(a personal joke that we now still find),
I just couldn't do it, don't ask my why,
I guess I was still just way too shy.
But it didn't stop you, not even close,
instead you built the trust that I needed most,
so I said yes, and you was so kind,
you knew I was scared, and you gave me time.
You started by asking

If I told you I was contemplating suicide,
Would you have serious concern for my health?
If I told you I had the who suicide note, written out
would you find it and show it to someone?
If I threatened to kill myself,
Would you try your hardest to keep me alive?
If I told you that I was close to the edge,
Would you try to hold me back?
If you really cared,
You would help me,
If you wanted to keep me alive,
you will tell me…

We could've worked
We had a chance
Why couldn't you see
Our great romance
I know you cared
I know you worry
But still you did it
With no hurry
You kept on pulling
On my strings
You showed me love
But now it stings
You acted nice
But said mean things
Had me confused
But I found my wings
You broke my heart
You ripped it out
But it will heal
There is no doubt
I will be sad
I'll shed some tears
But in the end
I'll break my fears
I will move on
I won't look back
I'll leave you lying
In pitch black

The Path We WalkCan you tell where the time has gone?The Path We Walk4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I'm not sure what's going on
How did I let the time pass me by?
I don't know which direction to go
Only that I have to take that first step
Leave the pain and sorrow behind
Keep an eye on the distant light
As I free my soul from a self-built prison
Sentenced to carry burdens that were never mine to claim
Their words won't bind me now
At last I see
I can't keep living in lost yesterdays
Held captive by the ghosts of my memories
Now I've taken away their power over me
Finally free to be who I was meant to be
I'm looking toward the future
Keeping a distant eye on that horizon
But I have to live for this moment
Tomorrow's are never guaranteed
Today is all we have and that clock is ticking fast
So I'm trying to do the right thing
Trying to be my best
And trying to live life with no regrets
Sure I've made mistakes
But I won't let them hold me down
They don't define me now
I can't regret taking a chance
No matter how it turns out
For better or worse
I believe in...I believe in...4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I believe that being true to yourself is the only sensible thing to do,
I believe we should never stop trying.
I believe thoughts run at the speed of light and love must, too, because it reaches so far away.
I believe blinking should be banned because there is so much to see,
I believe thinking is a beautiful ability of ours but you should really let me sleep sometimes, you know?
I believe in singing 24/7 and then denying to be able to when someone asks you to sing for them,
And then surrender because I can't say no to the ones I love.
I believe that "Inside me a lunatic sings" and its echo is what makes my heart beat.
I believe in "These Things You Can't Unlearn" which are like a birthmark on my soul.
I believe in "Fire Flies And Empty Skies", and
I believe that home is where the heart is.
I believe I am a flower that blossoms during Winter only,
One feed with snowlight and starflakes.
I believe in wax wings and Icarus and a "flight" is not always a physical journey, you see.
