Your wide smile.
Your camouflage hat.
You sitting in your favorite chair calling me your little 'pain in the ass.'
It became a term of endearment between us.
I still wish that day never happened. I wish everyday you were still here, and I know if thoughts and tears could bring you back, you'd be in this rocking chair again and I'd be on the couch, not having to even think about writing this.
We're still putting up with your two-faced family and mom and I refuse to believe you were ever related to those pathetic people. I think they've made mom cry more than anything else and I will never forgive them for what they've done.
It's been such a roller coaster year for mom and I since you left. I graduated high school, went into college, let loose tears like rain, broke my own heart by breaking someone else's, battled my inner demons, and have tried to keep this little family together as best as I can.
Mom said that when you first came here, all you bro

Hating what looks back?
Pinching the fat we see
On our hips
Tempted to just smash it
So we would never have to look
At out degrading selves again
Sometimes we cry
Or we find other things to hate
Teeth not straight
Eye color we hate
Nose too big
Pimple here, pimple there
Self-confidence is so hard to find
When you're hit hard everyday
With advertisements saying
'This product will help you lose this many pounds!'
'Wash your impurities right away with this cleanser!'
'Fix your smile right up with invisible braces!'
'Buy this product to fix your body and imperfections!'
But the fact is no matter how big or small we may be
Or how crooked our teeth might be
Or how big our nose may be
Or any other imperfection
We are all beautiful
Exactly the way we are
Big, small, short, tall
Because we were molded to be

It must be second nature to you now
I was just a toy
In this little game
The entire time
I thought that
Out of everyone
I would be worth more
You spun your own
Little web of lies
And you're still trying
To trap us all
I wish I could have known
Before it got to this
How you really are
Hiding underneath that smirk
You really don't care
About how many hearts you break
Cracking us open until we bleed
You were the bad one
All this time
And never worth
All I gave
So keep sitting there
Laughing in the background
Pretending to love
When you have no clue
Of the damage you've done

In this pathetic, fucked up mess that is me
Because what you say is beauty, vibrance, and life
I say is ugly, weak, and not right
I show you my soul, or what there is left
From all the years of self-hate and neglect
I notice you staring and I want to run
From the judgmental look I know you have on
But your hand grasps mine lightly, keeping me here
I'm afraid how soothing it is to me that your near.
Because I know you're going to leave me alone
I'm useless to you, trust me I know
"You are too good for me, this monster, this mess
I have too many flaws to possibly address
I'm selfish and needy and hateful and lost
Being with me is just too great a cost
I'll drag you down and hold you back "
But a finger on my lips stops my attack
He smiles at me and pulls me close
Whispering in my ear I mean the most,
"You are adorable, smart and crazy
Everything about you I find so amazing

But baby, I don't think you can see
The heart I have is ten stories up,
On the edge and ready to jump
Without a thought, without a care
Because it believes you will be there
Ready to save me before I hit the ground
I don't think it realizes that you're not around
There's no way to stop it, trust me I've tried
All that's left is to hang on for the ride
The jump leaves me breathless; then I start to fall
And I wonder if the ground hurts, if I hit it at all
Maybe he'll come, maybe he knows
The news broadcast could have interrupted his show
He'll be my hero and save the day
But deep down I know he's too far away
My world goes dark and there is only pain
Then the sky opens up and it begins to rain
The scene is gruesome, tragic at best
But isn't falling in love always a mess.
Once upon a TimeOnce upon a timeOnce upon a Time in Emotional More Like This
There was a girl
She was so full of questions
The world made her think
Made her cry
Made her smile
Her family annoyed her
But loved her
In the way only family can
Books showed her
That there is always a story to tell
Made her crave
For more than what she had
Nature calmed her nerves
Showed her real beauty
Made her want to capture it
So she could bottle it
And have it wherever she went
Art was her outlet
Writing were her emotions on paper
Friends made her laugh
Showed her how to have fun
Sisters made her patient
And gave her a temper to be scared of
He shined a light
To that part of her that she had never seen
And made her truly happy
Life has shaped her
Molded her into something new
She doesn't know
What to think half the time
And so she jots
Thoughts on paper
Longing to be read
Crying to be heard
Scared to be shown
The World is MineIt's time I made a change,The World is Mine in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
for my friends & my life.
For the new beginnings,
& the endings' strife.
For the love under-burdened,
for the strong never hurting.
And it tears my heart, it's undeserving.
It's time I show I can shine,
that I'm worth something, that I'm next in line.
That I'm number one & not number nine,
I know I can do it, for the World is Mine.
I wish to prove that I am a man,
and not some toy you wish a ban.
I affiliate with no one; I have no clan,
and I have no fear, for I have never ran.
But change has never accepted me,
it has always been forced & never self-willingly.
Sometimes I compare myself to a man forever crazy,
but the question is: Can change really help me?
But I know in my heart, I will find a new way,
A new beginning at what I'll say.
A new deadline that's not The Rapture of May,
and when it's tomorrow but yesterday's today,
A new light will shine a darkened way.
And I'll say it again, soon I will shine,
to prove that I'm real, that I'm next in line.

That your brain cannot moan?
Sometimes you can't help it,
But feel like a pile of bones.
Today, I cannot come to save,
If you're stuck in a yard that is grave.

As they walk through your minds of your valiant crusade,

For the deaths of many?
Is this just a game,

To criminally wind,
or destroy what's designed?
We are nothing to many,
but something to some.
We fight for peace for integrity,
but darkness for fun.
Some think life's nothing but a joke,
but why should you care?
Since when did you care for us?
Maybe you were too busy with your pop-culture monstrosity.
What a waste!
Believe me, it's a real deal for us,
and not a skeptic plate of despair.
I don't care if you think it's disgusting,
nor if it's fair.
Our life is just not a toy we can steal,
it's something we should share.
It's something we need to know about,
something you need to care.
Care, Don't care, get lost somewhere.
Do whatever! Just remember:
Our life is never waste less!

Can we feel the optimism within its rays?
Can we destroy the pessimism that rightfully strays,

Can this self-induced rank, you're proud to admit,
become the monster that will throw a fit?
Can your right of beliefs become the wrong of your griefs,
while it chooses the place where you'll have to sit?
Can we pretend that we're peculiar,
can we think that we're cooler?
Can we agree that we're seculiar,
like a dis-faulty math ruler?
Upon this paper with our minds we write,
stares the potential that shines like a dog that bites.
Within this potential are words that light,
a beginning to an end of a cycle-less night.
A dilemma in which we condemn with gloom,
as if it was the day of doom.
We wish to shield as quick as soon,
before it implodes, like an injurious boom.
So say it we must, so say it too soon,
so say that we are like a rainbow cocoon.
So say this potential is a rising balloon,
so say now our lives

To achieve his dream, to end his stride.
While he'll show dismay, to show he denied,
It shows that his dream has never died.
A man must pursue a pioneer of opportunity,
A beginning of change, a plight of self-mutiny.
A man must embrace what's now absolutely,
An age of enlightenment & a mind of concernity.
A man must bring unity to all left divided,
To vagabonds with no hearts, stay undecided.
A man must show courage to those who have sided,
To the sides they trust, to hearts now confided.
But that Man must show his own loyalty,
A pledge of allegiance to his civility.
An enforcement of peace that disfigures utility,
That embraces the joys of Human Unity.
But glory can shine once bestowing his pride,
With dreams all accomplished & completed stride.
And when dismay is acknowledged, when once denied,
That dream will forever shine for it has never died

She turned her head towards me, away from the night heavens, and her fine, frizzy, mist of humidity-curled hair blossomed slightly in the moonlight as she did so. "These are just distant representations that tell us where they are located in the galaxy, Charles. They are simply the same as a portrait of the night sky or a sonnet written about twinkling celestial bodies. They are just an author's or artist's perception of their true selves.

If I allowed myself a moment of superficiality right then, I would have said there was nothing special about her: not her hair style, not her face, not her body, not her smile, not her eyes or even the tone of her voice. In fact, there was something slightly non-pleasing about all those elements of her, but I couldn't quite put my finger on exactly why. Maybe everything about her was just a little "off' by the world's standard of what was beautiful and what wasn't. Regardless of that, though, I realized that at 2:00am, when I was the only customer in the store full of everything a person could need at 2:00am, it was an odd thing for her to say to me as I walked in and passed the che

These red gems,

I know, it's unwise.
You'd do the same on my part.
I'm not crying for help,
I seek only escape.
I do not yelp,
I know I'm a lesser ape.
I call them battle scars.
That is, if I survive.
With chances like landing on Mars,
Is it possible to even be alive?
Being alive but dead inside.
Living life in chains,
Tired of being cast aside.

Minutes of happiness theft.
Broken arm, broken leg.
Minor to a broken heart.
Fragile like an egg.
Failing to break apart.

All for four letters.
All the scars bled,
Hopefully it all betters.

For awhile we forget it's there.
For awhile life isn't profane,
For awhile everything's fair.
I can live with this,
This hurt inside.
As long as those I love have bliss,
As long as they haven't cried.
I'd take all your pain,
Just to make you happy.
So that you'll never complain,
So that you won't be unhappy.

Or so I've heard.

Laughter can't mend,
Neither can tears.

I should've used my brain.

The scars on my skin fade,
But not from my heart.
They've always stayed,
They'll never part.

But every broken heart is different.
I'll try not to put on a show,
I'll try to act indifferent.

I'm afraid to be broken.
