Even If I Don't Look Like It...I'm insecure,Even If I Don't Look Like It... in Free Verse More Like This
Unsure of myself,
and just a wee bit
Even if I don't look like it...
I'm a clown,
Painting on that smile.
I have courage,
because I can face my fears
because I don't whine about the pain,
I just get through it.
Even if I don't look like it...
I need the reassurance
that you'll stay.
I want that hug that you thought about giving,
then didn't because I looked so cold.
I love your smile, laugh, happiness,
because just to see you happy brightens my day
Even if I don't look it...
I can make it through without you,
because I know how to,
I've done it before, I can do it again.
I can go on without all the things I want,
All the things I need,
I do it all the time.
I can stay alive, even if I can't really live.
"I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure.
I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times
hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my
worst, then you absolutely don't deserve me
at my best."

Your body creates a natural band-aid to keep you protected.
When you want to tear open your skin
Your skin fights back, creates a tough skin of scar tissue to prevent it happening again.
When you take all those pills because you’ve had enough
Your stomach contracts to get rid of them
Because your body
You're better than you thinkPut that blade down, eat something, stop starving yourself, smile, put that rope away from around your neck, wipe away those tears, delete the message that bitch just sent to you, let your scars heal, laugh about it, talk to someone, find help, don't let those words hurt you.You're better than you think in Emotional More Like This
Go look in the mirror, tell me what you see, and don't tell me all you see is the person you don't want to me. Buy a better mirror, look a little harder, stare a little longer. You'll find something beautiful about yourself, something other people don't have. Remember it, don't let it leave your sight. Remember that you're better than what people call you, what they say behind your back, the rumors that have gone round about you. And if you're going to cry because the person who you love doesn't love you back because they believe that bullshit then push them away. Don't let them use you or treat you bad. You'll find someone better, everyone does.

who is in love with the way you
fix your hair because it keeps falling in front of your face,
and they are going to love the way you
insist on sitting on your bedroom floor rather than your bed
because it's more comfortable that way,
and they will love the fact that you organize
the bowls in your kitchen cabinet by color and size,
and they are going to be so in love with every little thing you do
that it hurts.

We speak of suicide and love notes,
homework and people who don't know we exist,
and what kinds of tattoos we want when we're older.
The fact that one day we will both be gone
and no longer have these long pointless talks
is terrifying to me.
We stay up late every night
and wonder why we wake up so tired in the morning.
Our late night conversations never fail to make me smile
when I re-read the messages you sent.
I think I'm in love with you.
Are you in love with me?
It's been a week since you texted me.
I tried calling you, but you wouldn't answer.
I'm starting to get worried about you
because you haven't been online either.
I hope you're okay,
and please return my messages as soon as possible.
You said that you couldn't do this anymore.
Our long-distance relationship was too hard for you,
and it would be different if we were closer.
Well, I hope you know that you broke
my heart into pieces.
I don't know what to do anymore.

how late did you stay up last night
thinking of someone that doesn't feel
the same way about you?
How many nights
have you lost sleep thinking about that person
and how many days
have you spent daydreaming about them?

escapes my chest,
and before the light slowly
starts to disappear from my eyes,
I just want you to know
that despite everything
you have ever done,
I am still in love with you
and will continue to love you
