Not MeThey can wonderNot Me in Free Verse More Like This
But they will never know
All these emotions
That I never show
They don't know me
Like they say they do
One wrong move
And they will know the truth
I can't achieve higher than expected
Or they might get suspicious
I am ordinary, part of a cliché
Peer pressure made me this way
Caked in make-up, with a high pitch laugh
This is the person they see
This person is not me.
My ImmortalI wish you could hear meMy Immortal in Free Verse More Like This
Say "I love you"
Say "I miss you"
Say all the things I wanted to.
Before you left.
The distance that separates us
Is greater than us both
The string of fate that keeps us connected
Is stronger than our oath
Can you remember it?
The oath we made that day
Will eventually fade
When it finally fades
Will our love fade as well?
Along with my purpose and memories.
Our love keeps us earth bound
Soon we will soar to the heavens
What if the heavens don't welcome us?
Then we shall return to hell.
The place we despise, Our home.
From here on out
I will venture to find you
Until the day our love finally fades.
We shall meet again one day...
I'll be waiting.
She is Me.You're distancing yourself againShe is Me. in Free Verse More Like This
But I'm afraid she won't be following you this time
She can't 'Forgive and Forget'
She'll forgive because it's the right thing to do
But the scar will remain as a reminder
She doesn't want to be with the people who hurt her
Like you did
She doesn't want to get close to those who don't trust her
Like you do
She doesn't want to be betrayed again
Stop questioning her all the time
Maybe that's the reason she doesn't speak?
Not to get close to anyone
Not to let information leak
Not to have anyone know, what she has become
She's too fragile
Very soon she may break
Yet she still searches for someone
Who might hear her silent plea?
She is someone, whose pain you never notice
She is me.
Not GoodbyeI didn't want to say goodbye like this.Not Goodbye in Free Verse More Like This
I didn't want our friendship to end.
I didn't expect you to distance yourself
I didn't want to lose another friend
I can't do anything now
It's time to walk away
We've been hurt too much
There's only one final thing to say
Do you know?
I've dreaded this moment for a long time
But I knew that eventually
That I would have to say this line
We promised we would do so much together
I guess we lied
Didn't we say "Friends Forever"?
Another friendship pushed to the side.
We don't "click" anymore
Let the misery end here
Keep the memories
Mine are always near
I hope this isn't goodbye

You are concealing inside
They want to get to know you better
Break away from these lies

Separating those who are alike
Keeping the two apart
What's on the other side of a mirror?
Who is that person who looks like me?
Those chocolate brown eyes that lost their warmth
Staring back at my own
Keeping two worlds apart
Separating disaster before it could start
Is there another world of the other side of this mirror?
Is it I that look like her?
I thought my brown eyes radiate warmth
Not pools of darkness
This mirror keeps me away from my perfection
Or is it I that am her reflection?
If so, I should be perfection
Not stuck here in this world of rejection.
Break this barrier
Free the evil
Crack this mirror
Corrupt the innocent
We look alike
We aren't the same
I am now behind the mirror
She has took my place
Who is she?
She is the devil's perfection
Who am I?
I'm just her twisted reflection.

Sometimes, I think when I sit alone
I am too emotional
Rubbing my aching chest.
I think of all the times I was heartless.
Sometimes, I think when I can't sleep
I am strong
Wiping away the endless tears.
I finally stop lying to myself.
Looking at all my problems
I find the source of all these self inflicted wounds
Scarring my tender flesh
A cold reminder of the harsh truth
I Am Alone.

I hate this place
I want everyone to disappear
All I ask is for my own space
This world darkens me
It crushes me to bits
And just the thought of being here
Pushes me into fits
The sun will flicker into dimness
The mountains I'll crush
I'll burn the oceans
The howling wind will hush
Nobody will ever smile again
I want to evaporate the sky
I can't wait for that horn to blow
This poem explains why
I'm the devil's perfection
Evil is why I live
There's everything to take
And I've stolen everything to give
All the frequent depressions
Break-ups and tears
I can scream my lungs out
But nobody hears
Nothing will ever matter
The end of the line starts here
Don't worry about anything
It's only everything to fear
I feel so empty

Apparently today is the day of Christ's rebirth
Today is supposed to be the day of the rapture
My belief in all of this chaos still requires capture
Those who believe are supposed to float into the sky
Though for now I think that I will continue to stand by
I don't mean to be insulting to those who believe in this
If not today, I hope that one day you'll find eternal bliss
To me today is another dreary day in the middle of May
I really do believe, despite all the fear, things will be okay
Whilst some people I know are all consumed with fear
After a good week I am still here the embodiment of cheer
Fifteen minutes later, no events yet have taken place
Though I have made peace with loved ones, just in case

You are the one who has helped me to overcome all my fear
Now I see the world in a way that is ever so much more clear
I have come to think, for this world, you are far too good
You have shown me a love which no one else ever could
You are the one I will defend in any and all confrontations
I won't see tears on the face of one of gods purest creations
You live your life day to day, burdening far too much pain
Yet you are still able to see the simple beauty in the rain
You always make your point, despite not being outspoken
You remain so morally strong, despite being partially broken
Despite being too good for this world all you do is care

I have been thinking about this with some regularity
But it is only recently that I have established any clarity
After some horrible things to which I chose to resort
You brought me back with both comforting and support
After a short time our friendship grew into something more
My faith in humanity you were able to begin to restore
Now we are at such a turbulent point in both our lives
It will be difficult but I hope that our friendship survives
Because everything that you do in a manner that is so adroit

Who no longer has the passion needed to be a fighter
To begin with I come from a small town, barely a city
The way that the people act though is such a pity
This city has got such a colourful and vibrant history
How it has dissolved, to what it is now, truly is a mystery
Every day I do the same things that have become a routine
So many different aspirations I have found myself torn between
Do I continue with my hobbies and try to become a musician
Or try to help the world in some way by being a politician
I had everything until the day that my heart was broken
My feelings for that woman still remain but stay unspoken
I can no longer release all my frustration in competitive sport
The lack of outlets sometimes drives me near my last resort
That is the real reason that I began to get back into writing

She asked...I answeredI have not very long ago been asked a rather difficult questionShe asked...I answered in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
So why answering while being honest as always felt like a confession?
I had to explain how someone else was an emotional enhancer
You should not have asked if you couldn't handle the answer
You asked me if you could ever be more than just a friend
I had to admit compared to someone else you will never contend
You called me selfish, despite the fact you were always the taker
Then you went as far as to call me a narcissistic heart breaker
I have always been straight with you, right from the very start
Despite this you go on to call me nothing more than a male tart
I am hardly a tart when someone else owns my heart and soul
Implying I am some kind of tart suggests I have no self control
I can easily walk away from you without any backward glances
Saying all of these hurtful things is not improving your chances
I will not allow your words to have any kind of effect on me
That much at least, to you, I am definitely able to guar

Nothing in life so far seems to have gone according to plan
I'm not exaggerating when I say almost everything has gone wrong
Really talking about it though I have done without for so long
What are you suppose to do when as a person you're broken
When the pain you feel is beyond any words that can be spoken
The pain I felt so much it reverberated throughout my soul
It consumed any light that came into it just like a black hole
It quickly got to the point where I was in a state of depression
It was then I decided my feelings shouldn't be under suppression
I honestly believe that I am beyond the point of saving
I didn't realise someone to talk to was what I had been craving
That was when she walked into my life and asked me to walk
She easily took my hand and asked me to begin to talk
Because of her I no longer feel the need to run and hide
She is the one person in whom I know that I can always confide
It is because of her continued

Every single day I can feel the continuous mental strain
It has gotten to the point where I have started seeing things
My actions feel controlled, like a puppet on a bunch of strings
I think this has all happened because I was alone for so long
Although it might be because all of my choices have been wrong
The things I am seeing continue throughout the night
Though now I use them as inspiration to help me write
I do not want to tell you many details about all the things I see
The horrors of it all is something from which you need to stay free
You are actually managing to help me begin to recover
The way to help myself you have managed to uncover
Because of you and only you the horrors are beginning to disappear
Maybe because of all you done my mental stability will get the all clear
Her PainI want to tell you a little about someone dear to meHer Pain in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Although this is something she probably won't see
It is about what happens in her head she hides well
She protects herself but surrounding herself in a shell
Every single day she endures far too much pain
It is a wonder that she has not become insane
She easily hides all of this though with her beautiful smile
With everything she endures it's incredible she's not hostile
Even though she suffers she still wants to help those around her
It is worrying that everything seems to pass her in a blur
If you knew her you would be amazed what she is able to endure
Though I worry that soon her breaking point she will reach for sure
Some semblance of control over her life I want to help her regain
All I really want to do is find the source and take away all of her pain
DemonsI am taking a moment to think about demonsDemons in Concrete Poetry More Like This
In some way they are mentioned in all regions
It only takes one single mention and the interest spreads
Whether they are physical entities or problems in our heads
Theories behind them are discussed so much in works of fiction
The lore behind them, to the general population, is an addiction
I think this is disturbing, but I admit I also manage to see the appeal
Though do any of us really want to know whether they are real?
Some people think of them as the population of hell
Whether this is true or not no one can really tell
Some turn to alcohol to drown the demons in their heads
For others they are kept up long after lying in their beds
Some of them remain inside us, slashing with their claws
The fact some people can beat their demons deserves applause
Sadly some cannot beat them, and they lose their fight
Trust me when I say the result of this is an awful sight
Being really honest I myself am battling my own internal war
To beat them all, the

Is it missing someone

They are red. A bloody crimson, glowing like hellfire in the middle of the dark mass that is he has materialized in, beckoning her closer.
She steps forward, uncertainty trembling on her lips as she reaches out a hand, fingers curling in on each other. The question tumbles forth easily: "Who are you?"
He smiles, his mouth the only other thing visible in an otherwise utterly black figure. "Anyone who you wish me to be. You merely need to give me the orders, and I shall obey."
His voice is otherworldly. It is as if a shadow had learned to speak - silky, smooth, dark and dangerous. She shivers at the sound of it, resisting the urge to hold herself as a chill settles into her very bones.

But is she real? Am I real?
I don't know.
Maybe she's the real one and the reason she looks the way she does is because she always sees me and is terrified that something horrible will happen. Maybe I'm the real one and I'm terrified that she's going to let that something occur.
Or maybe we're just the same person and I'm letting my thoughts become too unraveled. There's no such thing as another side to a mirror. It's just a piece of glass that reflects that which is in front of its surface. But then again, what do I know? Not much, if I'm being completely honest.

was built like a skyscraper
whenever you were reaching for the stars,
but no one ever knew
that your heart was always built like steel.
(No one could ever break you
since you never allowed anyone in your heart,
but you would always leave secrets on my skin
because you set pity into our souls
so we could be broken together.)
You would always press your lips to mine just to feel again,
and I would never want to let go of you
because you always made me feel alive again.
(You would constantly convince yourself
that you never deserved to breathe again,
but I knew you only wanted your heart to break again
since you believed your heart always felt so wrong whenever it felt whole.)
And I promise you
that if you still care,
don't ever let me know.
Being broken is the new trend.
broken memories.When you were six and I was nine,broken memories. in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I could hear you singing in the shower
as you sang a broken chorus
that left everyone around you speechless
because as you looked at yourself in the mirror,
you saw new tears pouring down your face.
As your skin turned sheet white,
you remembered that you no longer have a heart.
When you were seven and I was ten,
we would play on swings
and see who could jump the highest
to touch the stars at night,
but the truth is that
I would always let you win
because I love the way that your lips smiled
whenever you screamed into the night.
I remember how we used to catch fireflies in jars
and you would always let them go,
but the truth was you were escaping your own mind.
(I remember how I always told you that I could fix you,
but your eyeliner always streamed down your cheeks
as you turned to run away
because you were too afraid of opening your heart.
I haven't seen you since,
but the truth is that I still love you.)

her heart breaks again
because she fell into a wonderland
full of false hope and dreamless nights.
At the stroke of midnight,
cold tears run down her cheeks
as her eyeliner gets smeared
because she doesn't believe that she is beautiful.
(She believes that you took away her beauty.)
At the stroke of midnight,
her heart grows cold
as she screams into the night
for another heart.

(You have no idea how strong I really am,
I'm built like steel
because I've always never been afraid.)
You may own my emotions in a jar,

(I always raised my lungs at you
because you were a devil in training,
but you've never made death look so beautiful.)
scream, aim, fire.Okayscream, aim, fire. in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
so maybe I don't remember what it's like to feel love
because my mind always plays survival of the fittest
in the most dangerous ways
to try and twist my heart
and make me paint the whole world black,
but that still doesn't mean
I've never felt pain.
I may hold on to my emotions
like a bulldozer
since I'm playing God in the tips of my fingers
because our world is like walking on fire,
but hell is nothing compared
to living without you.
(My heart was always weak,
you were just too blind.)
so maybe I'm desperate to see you smile again,
but that's only because your smile
was like one in a million.
(or maybe it's just because I'm selfish
since your smile has always made my heart skip a beat.)
I admit we've thought more about death than living,
but maybe we're all just broken inside.
Haven't you heard that pain is the new beautiful?

He said, ''You look beautiful today, baby.''
(But the truth is
that she had mascara smeared all over her face
because she just realized her muse disappeared.
You were always the thing that killed her nerves.)
Whenever you smothered her neck in kisses
she always would have a light in her eyes.
You were always her little piece of heaven.
You were the only thing that made her smile.
(All she ever lived for was you.)

but in the inside she only loved him
because he made her feel more strong.
She could handle her little secret
until her lips turn twisted in envy
while her mouth is caught in poison
as she screamed for another heart.
Her heart may be precious,
but she's just a monster inside.

He said, ''Death doesn't hurt as long as you don't feel alive.''
(But she's been waiting for death

and her whole world went numb ever since you've left.
She's never felt so dead before,
all she ever wanted was a heart.)
''Why is your face so white?''
''Because I'm trying to convince myself that I was born a ghost.''
(She constantly smeared her mascara on purpose
because people always believed she was a monster,
but the truth is she had a heart of gold.
She always made a sad song a masterpiece
because music was always her heart.)

''I need another chance to live.''

The first thing you said to me
was "Open your eyes
You were a collection of
skinned knees and your
father's broken promises,
holding onto your fears
like miniature phantoms
clinging to the bit of skin beneath your eyes,
the indentations of muscle in your chest.
You taught me how to make
You taught me that every little
every pop of pain,
was God's design,
and if he was a painter,
you said I'd be the Mona Lisa.
You said I was a work of art.
You made big towering claims
like your hopes for San Francisco,
you piled me up like cities and skyscrapers
and buildings tourists flocked to
just to take a photograph,
capture a single memory.
When I broke my bones,
you laughed it off and said,
"People, we're just like
big versions of dolls,
snapping limbs and
cracking under pressure
the way anything does,"

"No, it's too hot. I miss you."
"Are you having fun, at least?"
"Not really. I miss you."
"I miss you, too, but I thought we already established that."
"I know. It just...feels like half of my body is back home, sleeping in bed next to you."
"I just looked under the covers. Nothing's there, I promise."
"You know what I meant."
"You're right, I do. I'll let you in on a secret, though."
"I'll be gone one day, and you'll be alone."
"Wow, some secret..."
"No, listen. Right now, there are seven billion people on the planet. Some had their funerals today. Some got married. Some had birthday parties and so on and so on. Out of all the planets, solar systems, galaxies, and universes still unknown to mankind, we met each other. Out of everybody, I chose you and you chose me."

Her Golden Wings*Slowly the sound of a guitar fills the air*Her Golden Wings in Free Verse More Like This
She was born to a fallen world,
With made up games and dirty rules.
She tried so hard to flip the right cards,
Falling so short of a Royal flush.
Her procaine heart shattering to pieces.
*The strings of the guitar begin getting worked faster, making its sound echo louder*
She gave it her best, offering him her heart,
Suffering, time and again at his hands.
Where the smile feels so very fake,
But she works it for the crowd.
Hoping to believe, to make him see,
Her amazing heart,
Of the pureness and love she has to give.
*The guitar softening again, staying like that for a few moments before increasing in tone.*
He wont see, nor will he ever believe,
That what he has in his hands, is an Angel.
Ripping her precious golden wings apart,
Draining her blood in the dirt.
Leaving her there, alone in the darkness,
The fallen wrapping their claws around her.

that the shifting- the raging seas are not to be feared.
You said that with the faith the size of a mustard seed-
that I can say to the mountains, ‘Be moved,’ and they will be uprooted.
I just need the strength, the courage, the faith to believe.
I gasp, I struggle, I am desperate.
Desperate for the pain to cease.
Desperate for the screaming to end.
Desperate for one touch of healing.
One touch to feel that You are with me.
I fight against chaos and deception,
against an uprooted faith, lingering.
With fists clasped, with a spirit roaring, raving.
I scream into the emptiness, the darkness,
void of belief- laced within this despair.
There is a certain hopelessness that comes
when you lay helplessly in a state of desperation.
It leads you to a revelation that paints new light
to an otherwise deadly situation.
I wish I could say I didn’t reach that point,
that family surrounding me was enough
