Is It Love?If I hugged you,
would you never let go?
If I kissed you,
would you cherish that moment?
If I reached for your hand,

If I needed a shoulder,

If I needed to talk,
would you really listen?
If I needed to scream,
would you do it with me?
If I needed to go,

How much I wish you could stay,
How much I'll miss your voice, your face, your skin

I knew things about him that no one else did, even though sometimes I didn't necessarily want to. He had too many problems with girls who didn't deserve him, but if he ever let me have the chance to be his, I would make his time worthwhile.

So I'll write my terrible poems that no one will read, no one will like, and no one will care. I'll feel down, because nobody cares, and I'll listen to you yelling at me to stop."

With rainbows and crystalline light.

Arms spread wide,
Hide in the flowers
And delicate vines.

Red ribbons chasing his path.
Off into the clouds he flew
And disappeared behind the stars.

I'm sorry that I trusted you,

Sorry that I laughed at you,

I'm sorry I loved you too,
I'm sorry that you broke my heart,

Her cry, filled with pain.
Where is he?
Where did he go?
Didn't I see him? Just a minute ago?
He was here, and now he's gone.
And now a thought begins to dawn....
He's left her, he's moved on.
She loved him, he loved her too.
Or so she thought, and in her mind, a plan begins to brew.
She'll get back at him, oh yes!
She will, she'll make him pay.
She'll even kill.
He took her heart.
She took her life.
And now that man has lost his wife.
He didn't leave her, he hadn't moved on.
He was too late....and now she's gone.
Pitter Patter goes the rain.
And now his cry is filled with pain.

I bend over her body,
my tears stain her clothes.
I feel their empty hugs,
they say I'm in their prayers.
As I mourn her death,
upon me are their stares.
They say they understand me,
say they know how I feel.
But I can see their steely glares,
they pretend this isn't real.
I say my dear goodbye,
they lower her into the ground.
I throw myself upon the dirt,
and weep without a sound.

I cannot live without you, so I'm doing this you see."
"If we cannot be together, then I don't want to live,
I've got nothing left at all, nothing left to give."
I close the envelope softly, seal it wish a kiss,
Turn to look the other way, and wait for my dismiss.

BeautyBeauty rose out of that silent sea,More Like This
Her eyes were tepid with wild thunder,
And then she turned and looked at me.
Me; a meagre man who knew no lady fair,
Nor one of care as she snaps my heart asunder.
Beauty flew up to that sinister sky,
Her lips were dark with mad desire,
And then she turned and started to cry.
Cry; a crude curse who knew no mortal smile,
Nor one so vile as she scars my aura in fire.
Beauty stood up on that scarlet skin,
Her locks were rouge with quiet rain,
And then she turned and walked on sin.
Sin; a sordid spirit who knew no lover true,
Nor one in clue as she saves me from my pain.
Nonexistent PerfectionShe dreams of perfectionMore Like This
The perfect guy, sitting next to her
His perfect smile, shining down at her
His perfect arms, wrapped around her
His perfect voice, soothing as he speaks
His perfect everything, perfectly with her
His words gentle, loving, genuine
He would never lie to her.
He would never cheat on her.
He would never hurt her.
He would never stop talking to her.
He's perfect, remember?
She sits alone
Hurt, indecisive, and unknowing
Of why this dream can't be real.
She waits by herself for something to happen.
Nothing ever does.
She has been hurt.
Hurt by her own imagination.
TreasureI found a treasure on the street,More Like This
More precious than anything I ever saw.
He was hiding in the shadows,
Unnoticed by those who never look.
But I saw him, filled with light,
With a heart of gold and calming warmth.
I saw him, hiding in the darkness,
Hoping for some light to reach his eyes.
I knew what he was waiting for,
I knew how he felt, day for day,
Where hope seemed unreachable,
That boy whose life seemed worthless and dark.
I saw the surprise he felt,
When I stopped and reached towards him,
"What are you doing in that corner?
Look around, it's a bright and sunny day!"
Slowly he nodded and stood,
his large eyes finally turned towards the light,
his children's face almost too thin
to hold that rare smile, more precious than a diamond.
But as he stepped towards me
His smile wavered and died,
As doubt invaded his mind,
And happiness seemed just a dream.
"Why would you help me?
I have nothing to give."
I smiled and took his little hand,
Leaving behind the darkness he knew.

ObsoleteYou're left to the side by the one you loved,More Like This
You thought they were the one,
The person who completed you and made your heart happy,
But it all went to shit one day,
Your heart breaks, your hands shake, and you don't know what went wrong,
Broken, beaten, and alone you're left to cry with that repeat on that one song,
The one song that explains the situation,
The one that tears your heart into pieces but you love the pain,
Tears falling down your cheeks serving as your only salvation,
As you go through this break-up and feel a transformation,
At the point of almost breaking you stand on your own two feet,
Breaking the bonds of what once was and you continue your life,
Looking for someone to love and to stop all of the strife,
I hope one day you find that one who can make your life complete,
But as for me my love life is forever obsolete.

Your arms, like wards around me;
Acting as shields from the monsters that haunt me.
And if I were to jolt awake,
You'd pull me into your embrace.
You'd rock me gently;
Back and forth.
You'd stroke my hair,
Whilst whispering sweet nothings in my ear.
Then you'd lay me down, onto your chest;
Until you feel my slowing breath.
Bravery of the SmallHis exploring days had ceased since the incident.More Like This
To start from the beginning, there was a peninsula of land on the eastern hemisphere of the planet, now void of Humans. Rather than concrete pathways that most Human cities had, this place had rivers as roads.
It had been scarcely a day since her son was born, and she lay in her bed, exhausted, holding the newborn close. He was so tiny, so delicate looking, curled up in her arms. His small, pale orange wings were fluffy with down, and his thin red ears pulled down in contentment. The baby's face was round and youthful, and he resembled his father faintly in the shape of his shoulders and his occasional smile. Speaking of which, she worried about her husband. He was far away, exploring in another country, probably not knowing about the birth of their son. Cira hadn't gotten a chance to message him. She also worried about the newborn himself. He wasn't supposed to be so small. He was, perhaps, almost twice the size of her paw.

Hold me in your grasp until I never see the light of day.
Take me far away; away from everyone I know
Take away their voices so my breath may finally slow.
Let your peaceful current calm this broken mind,
Let it carry away my thoughts to a place impossible to find.
Give me the silence that I crave each sleepless night,
Fill my ears, my body, my soul; just make everything alright.
Fill this beating heart, so broken, hurt and scarred,
Stop it's painful beating; it's just become too hard.

Gentle is my tip, I take you on every wild trip
So tighten your grip, squeeze me and take a sip
Get on my last ship, it is time to tear and rip
My waves keep slamming your shore
Burning every sense in your core
Your nails on my side, always coming back for more
They take over every land, as we celebrate this war
You said God made me perfect
The size of my breast, where you built your nest
My wild birds on your chest , always flying west
The short breath is your guest, dancing, will never rest
Every touch gives you my best, closer to my final quest

Because though we both live
For these slow-motion conversations
These keyboard-clack promises
Of love cloaked in guilt and binary,

Because there are other poems to write
Other hands to hold
Warm and solid and
Unmarred by pixels and obligation.
Because no matter how many letters we write
Texts we send
Nights we waste
There are nine hundred and eighty six miles between
There and Here,
Which is nothing to the distance between

And I'm working on the name.
And when you look into her bright brown eyes,
I hope you see my baby blue.

PhoenixMore Like This
The bandaid covers up the bullet hole
So much for having a bullet-proof soul
The bullet burned through me
Ignored every artery
Buried itself into my soul
The poison, it spread through every cell
My life felt like a living hell
My skin wanted to crack and peel off
My mind wanted to pass away from blood loss
Part of me died
When people began to ask, I lied
I put on a façade
And my true self began to hide
But in order for a phoenix to be truly beautiful
It has to die
Destroy itself completely, when it's no longer useful
Be reborn, start a new
It took awhile
But I walked the long mile
And I won't go back
This is what I choose

The echo in the night...

The body in the ground....
The beetles as they mourn...
The lips that make no sound....

Picking at every 'bad' thing, putting me down for fun

Next thing I know, I was covered in dirt.
After lunch I set forth to class
Looking up and locking eyes with each person I pass
Their eyes filled with hate, anger, and dismay
None of them stopped to ask if I was okay.
Come three in the afternoon, the bell rang

This one group followed me down to the park
They beat me to the ground until I couldn't get up.
Covered in bruises, grazes, and cuts
I walked home, and slammed my bedroom door shut
