So I clasp my hands over my ears.
And shut it tight.
My eye’s eyes are shut. I don’t scream anymore.
Dry lips, from no longer screaming.
My mouth will remain shut.
Time no longer turning.
I am here for you little screaming girl.
Don’t open your mouth.
You’ll fall victim to the repetition.
The addiction of the screams.
Once I open my eyes
Fading to white, the world around me blurs.
Refusing to scream, just because of the
Others fall victim to the repetition, the addiction.

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 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.

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.

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

You in a hospital bed

You never know what you love until it's gone

That every single day, each moment of your existence
A new maze to climb through, a trap you can't escape
But I swear

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

Why is it the week days go so slow?
But yet the weekends are over in an instant.
I have gotten so used to being constantly on the go,
That every part of my life has become routinely consistent.
Whenever I have a time slot that is vacantly free,
I feel as if I should be developing or preparing for something else.
I always feel as if there is somewhere else that I was meant to be.
I never take full advantage of the short intervals I have to myself.
I’ve had enough of the early mornings and the constant yawning.
Dreaming of over sleeping and then opening my eyes all of a sudden.
Even the usual serene sounds of the birds chirping have become haunting.
Every morning I wake up to my annoying alarm and tap the snooze button.
I work, wait and anticipate for the week to end.
Making hopeful plans to catch up with some old friends.
And before you know it Monday has dawned once again.
I wish the weekends had more days imbedded in-between them.

I thrive and depend on your compliments
And it is only then as a direct consequence,
Am I truly able to write with confidence.
Even though your words are only temporary.
I deem your contribution as utterly necessary,
In order to refresh my wavering, selective memory.
My own validation depends on your approval.
Whether it is congratulatory or discouragingly brutal.
Your input is the one thing that is most crucial.
Can I call myself a writer if I don't believe in myself?
When I constantly seek approval from everyone else?
How can I then expect to make any sort of wealth?
Of a craft and skill I still think anyone is able to produce.
Is there any point in me putting my apparent talent to use?
When I limit and submit myself into a negative recluse.
I was told I must have self belief in order to achieve,
The dream that I am so desperately trying to receive.
The body can only accomplish what the mind believes.
I know I must rid myself from any form of self doubt.

She was very sensitive.
As if the volume was turned up in her head.
She started using her mother’s sedatives,
As a solution for her sleepless nights in bed.
She couldn’t connect with any of her relatives,
They never showed an interest in anything she said.
Her attempts at socialising were tentative,
So she conjured up imaginary friends instead.
Her dogged detachment was her only imperative.
She could not risk the chance of being misled.
There was no one to peel back the layer of negatives.
Too many years of tears have been bred and shed.
The smile she occasionally displayed was purely decorative.
She knows people will judge her before they have even read
Her story because they’re too caught up in their own narrative.
They only take the time to read your book once you are dead.
They say we’re born alone and die alone.
As humans we are built to survive and consume.
Even if you are raised from a loving home.

They say God only gives you what you can handle.
But lately I have realized that this cannot be true.
Every blow has the potential to blow out that candle.
So there is no guarantee that everyone will pull through.
What happens if you can withstand the disturbance?
Will you be constantly waiting for the next wave?
Imagine waking up knowing what lies behind the curtains.
Confined behind the undefined lines of a close shave.
Perhaps we all possess the prowess to overcome any obstruction.
But not everyone has the belief that they can persevere.
We are all victims of a much bigger incomprehensible construction
And there will always be some that succumb to that deepest fear.
What will you become if you somehow conquer all the obstacles?
Doing whatever it takes to ensure that you will survive.
Blaming others for what you have done refusing to be responsible.
Knowing this is the person you had to become in order to stay alive.

That I am trying to protect from all what is bad out there.

Angry, lonely, little girl.
Begging for life by praying for death,
Understanding love but hating breath.
Black lies in spider silk,
Smothering all the voices.
Screaming truth by spreading the lies,
Hearing them all but ignoring the cries.
Heartbreak and heartbeats,
Drowning out broken hearts.
Beating hate by feigning glorified love,
Confined by life but free as a dead dove.
Crimson hopes flooding out,
Killing the pessimist's child.
Singing silence by bleeding it away,
Losing religion but aching to pray.
Killer fame striking hot,
Taming the soul I loved.
Playing the game by sitting it out,
Knowing it all but nothing about.
Sharp amethysts stab deep,
Reminding me of my you.
Showing me care by letting me die,
Listening long but not hearing me cry.

Hell's hearse harking hollow hate,
Taking me away from this berate.
He held hearts, he hurt her head,
He's him and I'm her; both better off dead.

The Open WindowAmazing how it isThe Open Window in Free Verse More Like This
That I deny myself
I was willing to learn
Along with all the others
All the while suspicions aroused
I deny them all one-by-one
How much I've longed
To just make myself noticed
But that is not me
for I hide in the shadows
Yet light fell upon me
Making me seen
No matter how much
I tried to blend in
My window opend up
I smiled at the gentle breeze
But I closed the curtains
turned and walked out
I don't know if the window is closed
Or when I will be in that room again
I don't know if I'll ever see the glimpse
of that outside world I saw again
Perhaps it will come to me
Rather than I to it
for some things have a way of finding me
Bright blue sky
And Soft yellow sun
Here things change
But not too quickly
and not too much
I think it will be very much the same
Ahh, maybe when summer ends
And fall begins
I will see it again . . .
No longer hiding myself in the shadows
Having the teasings one-by-one
I will be my own
Stading by the open window

Losing MeI find peace in loathingLosing Me in Concrete Poetry More Like This
I suffer pleasure from pain
I feel comfort in dark clothing
Whether judgment or acceptance is my bane
I have cried all my tears
Still in darkness I am bound
Wandering desperately through the years
The true identities never to be found
Lost is all
A blanked out, thrown out memory
From the abuses that do appall
Hope and love was my every
But now my life will soon dissolve
Into a screaming dark place with no resolve...
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.
TimeAh, the first breath's sweet kisses,Time in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Morning dew's fair promises
The love and life patient waiting could bring
Ready, wishing, and anticipating
Hopeful for the next fruitful morning to come
Desiring time in all its splendor from
Delighting in each and every new experience
Learning and growing from all life's experiments
But dreadfully missing the sight of a loved one
Joyously anticipating the morning sun
To lighten every mundane worry
And make the next day better, surely
But now as each second should pass,
Desperately remembering the sweet, passionate last
And wishing dearly that it would return
Back to happier, younger times we yearn
Despairing now in every moment coming
Passing time will prove most numbing
Time, what once you loved and begged to pass
Steals life's moments, approaching your last
Only death and ruin doth time decay,
And youth filled life doth time betray.
FlawedOf every fearFlawed in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Death is past so clear
To be unset
Conceal my fate
Veil my hate
Darken the place
Seal my fate
Broken and cracking
Slitting and split
The blood is lacking;
Flesh now separate
Flawed my fatal design
Never to heal, even through time.
Only SurvivingCompletely seething,Only Surviving in Concrete Poetry More Like This
My feelings bleeding
I insert the hurt
To flirt with the dirt
I stay; delay,
But pay today
The price for thrice with the knife I slice
And strife my life
In vain it was slain, all pain unfeigned
The main vein--drained
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
When All is Lost...My hate, subject of its own contagion,When All is Lost... in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Though my inner thoughts will never reveal;
Conceptually, my whole life's abrasion,
Because all of my wounds will never heal
Black-pitted horror is all that is seen
The DescentIn the center of the nightThe Descent in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Hellish demented cries, such pain and plight
Grinding, ripping, scratching, tearing
At my body and mind, though not bearing
But driven to crash and break, no wait...
The cries subside
Only now dyed
In a dark black abyss
Only louder than the sound to miss
But when its flaunted return
Brings me to learn
If, perhaps, I would tire
No regard to admire
Except a newfound fondness for the noise,
But my descent, no choice
Down to a world dark and dreary
To reside, weak and weary
Ah, why my calamity
To be dragged into insanity.
Coming OutIntimidationComing Out in Free Verse More Like This
"Don't," my inner voice forewarned... And as I pondered the fact that I should listen to it more often, the demon on my other shoulder kept begging. Incessantly pleading, beseeching, imploring. It would want nothing more than for me to get what I wanted (...or what it wanted...) Could my desires really be the same as that of a demon? I would be tragically crushed. We had been battling with this reverse psychology for too long.
I had been hiding and denying my sexuality for too long.
But I realize now
Why I can't relate
Why I differentiate
I can't understand
That I wasn't planned
But neither can they,
What would they say?
I can't be who I want to be
Living a life that is fake, sadly
"I'm not living,"
Battered, bruised, and beaten,
Crushed to conform,
Cold, never warm
Time to give in
Bring on the heat
To make me feel
Make me heal
"I'm going to tell them,"
But how would they react?
Would I still be intact?
In fact, actually, I'd be better locked away
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.
BornIn the beginning,Born in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Where do we begin?
In our minds, we progress
In our bodes, we digress
In our heart, to learn
What is right, we discern.
But what of it, forewarned,
In its nascent form
The inability to infer
Just why it differs?
No one can comprehend
Or pay with amends;
The prize of destiny-
A life of bigotry
A hateful word to confess
And they couldn't care less
For the reason it was condemned
For there was no one to defend
That it was just created that way,
But that's not what they say
They knew when it was born,
And adorned it with scorn,
A ComparisonI do not dare to speak of familyA Comparison in Free Verse More Like This
When yours was torn apart so suddenly
I do not dare to speak of funerals
When you had to bury several friends
I do not speak of depressions and mental issues
When your demons had almost got you killed
I do not speak of the darkness I am fighting
Compared to your hell it's merely a shade
You all have faced greater horrors
Than I can ever imagine
I never felt such intense pain
I never was already dying
What right do I have to be weak
When you survived so much worse?
Leave her alone!I see you, hear your criesLeave her alone! in Free Verse More Like This
They may come from the heart
You blame others for filthy lies
But yet, you fail to see
And still, you fail to listen
You assume, think you know
But you don't understand
I see you, hear you whine
Maybe you really miss her
Maybe you cannot understand
She has a life on her own
Come on, get up. I know it's hard
Move on, you can't have her back
I see you, hear you still
See, the more you complain
The more pathetic it looks
Without a true apology
She is not to blame for this
She had suffered far too long
I see you and hear you
And for the last time "Stop!"
She has enough of you, just go
Leave her, don't try to call
She had explained it patiently
Over and over and over again
But you never listend, not once
