(simply for being a lunatic which in all tongues is called a writer):
There is something you must understand.
These words are not ours.
We did not create them.
They simply sit, waiting quietly in the dusty wings of our brain.
We are the directors of the play, telling the words where they must go, what message they must give to the audience, what they must represent.
The words, so quiet and compliant,
Impact others if we know how to use them skillfully.
For we are just hoping you will enjoy the show.
*Ideas we set in ink* in Free Verse More Like This
Do not mirror reality.
No matter how hard we think,
Our words are not actuality.
In writing, all that one can do
Is wish upon an asterisk
And hope that wish comes true.

Why Fall In LoveThere are always the cynical ones,Why Fall In Love in Free Verse More Like This
those who could really care less
And they say,
"Why fall in love?
I don't need anybody else.
It's just a waste of energy and time."
Well, one does not ever mean to fall in love.
It's a natural occurrence in all human beings.
You never realize it
Until you hear them laugh and
smile at the sound.
See them sad and
instantly long to make it better.
Feel them smile at you and
want to freeze that moment forever.
It's a disorder of the brain,
But it feels so good;
An addling of the mind,
Yet it brings you so much more happiness and
than you've had in a long while.
And even if it doesn't work out,
No matter what happens
You will be happy if they are.

Jenga Is a Dangerous GameJenga Is a Dangerous Game in Free Verse More Like This
Oh, please don't use words like "forever" and "always".
I get a little dizzy when you say them,
And my careful, precarious stack of hopes could fall down at any minute.
Though I don't and do wish you wouldn't,
You build it up, nourish it, make it grow
Each time you are kind to me.
Add a block for every smile.
Cause my heart to fly, my soul to sing;
Make me want to dance with you until the music ends...
But please, don't use words like "forever".
My tower is too tall, and I can't afford
To let it collapse on me, too.
What it Isn't, What it Ain'tBeauty isn't makeup.What it Isn't, What it Ain't in Free Verse More Like This
Beauty isn't paint.
Beauty isn't purchased.
Beauty isn't; it just ain't.
It's not a thing to be desired.
It comes all on its own.
Even if you have none, don't you worry:
Here is a secret not widely known.
Beauty isn't on the surface.
It's all on the inside.
This kind of pretty can't be faked,
Although many have tried.
It all depends: What's in your soul?
A princess or an ugly troll?
The qualities that you possess
(Like friendship, loyalty, truth, kindness)
Are what make you attractive.
Now go find your ever-after.
SkyeShe was as blind and beautiful as her namesake,Skye in Free Verse More Like This
Ever changing and evolving with the seasons of her mind.
She hid not a single emotion.
She always said what she was feeling.
Her face betrayed her, and she knew it not.
If you needed someone to talk to, she was there.
Every sensation experienced showed clear;
Even if you didn't want to see.
Sometimes you even forgot she was there.
She was calm, catastrophic, serene, stormy, heartbreaking, deep, confusing, ponderous, perfect, haunting, mysterious, amazing, inexplicable...
(And, of course, always nice to look at.)
The monster in the mirrorI look in the mirror and all I seeThe monster in the mirror in Free Verse More Like This
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'
No one's listening. . .With every breath I takeNo one's listening. . . in Free Verse More Like This
I feel as if there's someone hammering at my head
And clawing at my heart
With every move I make
Something is tearing me apart
Making me grow weak
With every word I speak
Someone else gets hurt
And I'm ignored once more
So tell me...
What's the point of me screaming
If there's no one to listen?
AbandonmentEveryone leavesAbandonment in Free Verse More Like This
Don't get attached
It all seems good at first
But never seems to last
One day they'll decide you're not good enough
And cut you out of their life
Then you feel like you did something wrong
And cut yourself with a knife
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
I am NOT Crazy...I feel like I'm going crazyI am NOT Crazy... in Free Verse More Like This
I'm alone every fucking day and
There's nothing I can do about it
When I'm around people
They irritate the crap out of me
With their stupid questions
"Are you okay?"
When what they're really thinking is
"Give me a reason to send you away
away from everyone
to rot and not bother anyone
They never say that
Instead they drive me even more crazy
I don't need this shit
I don't want this life
I'm a useless waste of space
I don't need you to tell me
I already know
I knew before you did
Why do you think I have these SCARS?!
THEY DID THIS TO YOU!
No, That wasn't me speaking
That was the little voice in my head
I'm the only one to blame
NO! THEY MADE YOU CRAZY!
THEY MADE YOU NOTICE MY PRESCENCE!
THEY MADE YOU THIS WAY!
But who is they?
Wait, why am I responding to you
You're not real
THOSE PEOPLE THAT LEAVE YOU ALONE
ALL THE TIME!
It's not their faul
Not Strong EnoughMy other armNot Strong Enough in Free Verse More Like This
A clean canvas
Waiting to be turned into art
With red liquid
Slashed and gashed on it
The razor is my brush
How it can leave it's mark on the canvas
Without having ink or paint
The clean canvas
It wants to be drawn on
The need grows stronger
Although I opposed myself to it
I'm not strong enough...
CliffClose your eyesCliff in Free Verse More Like This
Count to three
Jump the cliff and you'll be free
You're not good enough
For them or for yourself
They won't miss you
They won't even cry
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
Heartless ShadowAlone in the darknessHeartless Shadow in Free Verse More Like This
Where no one else can see
A place where I can run away
A place for me to bleed
The tragedy seems endless
It has not faded with time
I still ache, I still hurt
That time, you'd crossed the line
You shouldn't have shown affection
I shouldn't have become attached
When in the end I always knew
That this love would never last
Nightmare I can't breatheNightmare in Free Verse More Like This
I can't move
All I can do is watch
As I lose
Lose this battle
Break the promises
Reach for the knife
And end my torment
Look at the knife pressed on my wrist
Is this the right thing to do?
My head soon filled with memories
The hurtful words, the evil laughs
The imprisoning acts
Condemning me to silence
Or else the pain will last
Having remembered all this
I have made my decision
I drag the knife down my wrist
Making a big incision
The room spins
I feel myself fall
But I don't feel pain
I wake up
Breaking into a cold sweat
Checking my arm
Thank god it was all
Just a horrible nightmare

Millions of things running through my mind
How to calm this heartache
How my sanity is becoming harder to find
How to help him
How to keep him alive at least one more year
It's my life for his
I'm willing to do it, I have no fear
Everyone else is worried about me
I'm the only one that's not
So why won't you just leave me be?
This battle I have to fight
It can't on for too long
I will not win in the end
For I am not strong
I have been bent
But this time I fear I will be broken
BrokenBroke my heartBroken in Free Verse More Like This
You broke it in two
Do you realize
What you put me through?
I'll never believe in love again
I don't think we can ever be friends
I can't shake my feelings for you
No matter how much you put me through
I loved you so much
But to no luck
This little game you like to play
Breaking all these innocent hearts
But soon enough you will pay
One day your heart will break in two
You'll realize what Hell you put me through
And no longer am I going to wait
For now I am filled with such dreadful hate
It's eating me up, eating me alive
And no one can see I'm broken inside
