Hair like silk
Dances off graceful shoulders
A face like an angel's
Though human and mortal
A body like an hourglass
Every curve perfectly molded
Skin so soft and supple
So pure and untouched
You, my darling
Are perfection at it's finest

She doesn't like me like that
We're best friends
We give each other advice
We laugh like any other normal friendship
But she's not a lesbian
She's not bi
There's no hint of lemon
Or twist of lime
And it's never meant to be
So why make things awkward
It's just a hopeless case
Of love that's lost
It's just a hopeless case
Just a hopeless case...

The addiction of the screams.

Fading to white, the world around me blurs.

I'm doing this all for youPlease forget that I am here, but don't forget that I once existed.I'm doing this all for you in Free Verse More Like This
This world I wanted to abandon has now embraced me, in the most loving of ways.
Forgetting my old emotions, I embarked on this new journey in life.
But instead of being welcomed.
I was destroyed on the spot.
Fighter planes gunning me down.
Once again I found myself at a roadblock.
Pretending that the exit behind me didn't exist.
Nor did the signs leading me in the right way.
Instead I ran straight into the bullets.
Pretending that I could take them.
That I was made of steel.
I ignored the cries telling me to turn back.
Unable to close my eyes from this fearful sight.
The sight of my own demise.

That you want to do it.
Or that if I offered you'd like too
My heart, is twisted.
And knows this simple logic of saying no.
But within these walls, let's experiment.
Nobody can see me each day round.
To carry or care.
Hours spent, on mindless things.
Eyes dead, in this soulless life.
Single again, another rounding heartbreak.
This heart, hasn't been known for much.
These words haven't been shown to the world.
ThanksWhen did my inspiration fly south?Thanks in Free Verse More Like This
It isn't winter anymore.
Why can’t I gain the excitement I used too, about someone enjoying my work?
Was I faking it all along?
Shouldn't this mean more?
This used to be my life, my escape, my everything.
I have all these ideas.
But when they come through I do not care to see the outcome in the readers.
Instead of connecting, I simply say something useless.
Instead of fighting back against those who dislike I just reply.
No argument in sight.
Didn't I used to care about the few fans I had?
I used to explode with happiness when someone said “I connected with this!”
Now it’s just, a bleak thanks, and I move on.
My wordsThe amount of words spoken everyday can become repetitive.My words in Free Verse More Like This
“I want to be stronger.”
They don’t sink in anymore because we've overused them.
“Why doesn't anyone love me?”
No longer can we start a revolution, or inspire a world.
“We can do it! Keep on fighting!”
Instead we wind up sounding cliche.
“I want to die”
No longer are we the poets who make people cry.
“Life is shit”
Instead we leave a blank feeling, because we've heard it before.
So we are left with this emptiness.
But that can’t be true.
Because it’s too cliche.

I used to be able to have the words tell a story.
Now I’m at a loss for words, wishing I could bring back the inspiration I had before.
I know if I force it out, my words will become lies.
Un-relatable, and confusing.
Despite my efforts to change this.
It’ll remain the same.
Till I find my inspiration again.
I am aloneMy feelings I threw into a box, too big for me.I am alone in Free Verse More Like This
So I created a mask, made of all the tears I've shed.
I know I know how cliche that sounds.
You asked, you asked “Are you ok?”
But you didn't want an answer.
Instead you wanted to be smiled at, and say in a plastic voice “I’m fine, you?”
Because you wanted to talk about yourself.
The feelings you had were apparently superior to mine.
Apparently I am just here as a blank slot.
To be played and then left because I ‘gave nothing’.
The time limit for you to care lasts a minute, and then you’re off.
“This ‘you’ isn't the person that we want to deal with.”
“Be happy, or we’ll stop being around you.”
“I've always been there for you!”
“Stop being so depressing.”
Black voidsA black void escapes my lips.Black voids in Free Verse More Like This
As the infection of pain takes over.
I’m screaming to an empty room.
In it lays all my fears.
My eyes are filled with parasites.
Seeing nothing but black.
Which leaks it’s way into my heart.
Trembling fingers, and sweaty palms.
Bugs clinging to my hair.
Nesting in my skin.
I have been contaminated.
By the sins of others.
Nobody can harm me now.
I have been contaminated
By the whispers of the heartless.
Reaching forth for some light.
It only seems to burn my skin.
My right eye has been removed.
And left with a hole.
Head spinning round’ and round.
Sitting in this dirty contaminated room.
A perfect fit for me.
I Love YouI Love YouI Love You in Free Verse More Like This
Means that I adore you for the person you are and would never even dream of trying to change you.
That I accept you for the person you are even if society doesn't,
That I will carry on with what we know is right, even if apparently it wasn't
That I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of times,
Being the one to uplift you when you're feeling down, in a bad mood, or when nothing rhymes.
Spending all of my time with you, even far past the point that it is uncomfortable, and
That every second away from you is agonizingly lonely and regretful.
I Love You
I know your deepest secrets and do not, and will not, judge you for them at any time, and
I know that you do not judge me for mine.
It means that I care enough to fight for what we have
And that I cherish you enough not to let go.
Love means an actual emotion, not just a word
The feeling is mutual, and this must be heard.

I suffer pleasure from pain
I feel comfort in dark clothing
Whether judgment or acceptance is my bane

Still in darkness I am bound
Wandering desperately through the years
The true identities never to be found

From the abuses that do appall

Absorbing your chest cavity,

That finalize your will for trying

That leads you to find everything
I want to be the last regret
That haunts you throughout every ring,
I want to be the dreary set
That gloomy sullenness would bring,
I want to be the thought of death
That savors all your suffering
I want to be the lies you tell
That lead you through your false deception,
I want to be the hopeless hell
That burns and distorts your perception,
I want to be the love you felt...
But that I am the one exception.

To flirt with the dirt
I stay; delay,
But pay today
The price for thrice with the knife I slice

But death was left for deft breath
The pulse to persist pulls to exist
Fall in all
Just to survive is not to be alive

Sharpened blade, of whom, weeping use
Stings the call of the unrepenter's eye
Distorted metal threatened, evokes a sigh
Wincing, contorting expressions perform
Before comfort, respite, and relief reform
A thirsty weapon crimson gore pursues
Satisfying such pain to gain thus reuse
Delved into flesh with unrelenting force
Cries and sighs yet no remorse
Wishing emptiness a feeling filled
Eternal unrest thus ne'er willed
Across again, and through swollen veins
Pure misery pierce, weeping sanguine rains
Without even a tear, nor feeling of fright
The resentful soul seeks the realms of night.

Burns like screaming violence...
Is this relief
I find in grief?
The old days drifting through my head
And I should really go to bed
But I'm not with you....
Oh, there was nothing I could do
So I've been sitting here alone,
There's not a single thing I own
Yet if I try to change,
...I know I'll fade...
And I know these thoughts are broken,
And my heart is cracked wide open
You might reach inside...
...To see what you find...
But I am still empty,
All false promises of plenty
But what did you say...?
'There was no other way...'
Yes, I know I hide
Because...A part of me has died
There is no way to recover
So I just have to suffer...
A Beautiful LoveAt first it was hard to tell how you feltA Beautiful Love in Concrete Poetry More Like This
So she just played on with the hand she was dealt
Thankfully she began to play her cards right
Though she missed a few moves, she still held on tight
And never let go
Or let her weaknesses show
Soon enough you caught on
And she loved you like music
For you were her song
She didn't need to choose it
Always stuck in her head
Especially as she lay in bed
Just dreaming of the day
That she would hear you say
"I love you,"
And when that day came,
She was, overjoyed,
If I may,
For she loves you too
With all of your feelings realized
The ensuing delight materialized
And your hopes and dreams began to blossom
Into something sincerely and entirely awesome
Yet again despairing and just beginning to cope,
But all that she needed was some courage, bravery, and hope
And with just the right guidance, she knew what to do
And now she's completely dedicated to you.
You Never Loved What You'll Never MissOpen your heart, like an open doorYou Never Loved What You'll Never Miss in Concrete Poetry More Like This
So that you can see what's in store
for you and all your little friends
this is how your story ends
If you'd just keep quiet
hide your personality's split
then this rumor mill could stop spinning
because when it spins no one's winning
Never bite the hand that feeds you,
it'll be the last thing you really do,
with out food you'll just starve
and start to fade away slowly, like your wrists' scars
And if you cry I won't wipe away your tears,
because when you cry I disappear
Maybe I don't want to be seen,
I don't want to be a golden girl on the silver screen
So take me out of your spotlight, halo of grace
take me away, let me hide my ugly face
And If you do I'll save you a kiss
because you never loved what you'll never miss

But, they just stole my innocence.
So turn around, watch your back,
Look out for the skills you lack,
Because one of these days
You'll get past the haze,
Then you'll finally see,
That we aren't meant to be.
I want you to know,
That this pain isn't just for show,
And you're an amazing guy,
But I'm just too shy.
Plus I'm not right mentally,
So Please, just forget about me.
The time I spend with you is great,
But I'm starting to fall out of love and into hate.
Red blood pours out of my pale skin,
It lets me know I'll never win,
Because this blood is what I could never say,
This blood is just the liquid emotion that I feel everyday.
Bring back my colors because they're starting to fade,
And erase these memories because they're so overplayed
So if I kill my self tonight,
My last wish is to end this fight.
Forget the labels, I've left them behind
Just erase this day, and hit rewind.

So tell me...
What's the point of me screaming

But never seems to last
One day they'll decide you're not good enough
And cut you out of their life

After a while, you get tired of being abandoned
Being thrown away like you're nothing
So affected by your past
You resort to cutting
You bring your inner pain out
You want to scream and shout
Until you have nothing left to say
Looking forward to the end of today
But not the start of tomorrow

Is that freaky little monster staring back at me
She does so much damage but means no harm
Her parents she does not want to alarm
So she keeps her feelings bottled up inside
Paints on a smile and acts like everything is fine
Puts on long sleeves and pretends the scars aren't there
It's not like anyone would even care
She waits until nighttime to sit and cry
Thinks about how much she wants to die
When everyone's asleep, she lies awake
Thinking of how many pills she'd have to take
Or how deep the wound would have to be
So people would finally hear her plea
Her need to see blood pour from her wrist
The pain that she had missed
It feels so good but it is so awful
The damage done to me has been so brutal
She looks at herself and makes a face of disgust
Wonders if there's anyone else she can trust
She sheds her tears every day
Wondering when the world won't look so gray
She doesn't hurt like she hurt before
With all the pain she's had to endure
I think she'

Going to bed with would haves and could haves
Regretting not cutting deep enough
When you should have
Crying yourself to sleep...
There's nothing good about mornings

Either way, I'm living but not really alive

Jump the cliff and you'll be free

For them or for yourself

That's what it's like
When someone like you dies
You wanted attention
Or so they thought
You hid in long sleeves
And fake smiles
Blood made it better
For a little while
Then even that wasn't a relief
So you needed something more
You went up the hill
Looked over the cliff
Thought of all the people
That said life was a gift
But it was all a lie
You jumped over and said goodbye
