We met in the park behind my house – I was seven, you were five. We were inseparable ever since that day – if I wasn't at your house, you were at mine. We shared our childhood and with it Barbie, dress-up, bug hunts, sleepovers, and trouble. Together we put away our childish things, trading Barbie for boys, skinned knees for teenage fashion, and crayons for perfume. Childhood was naught but a blur, little did we know our lives would change - we would part, go our own separate way. I graduated high school and moved away to a new life – I found happiness with that new life as well as my other soulmate.

Dream

D

Dream

Beneath the pale moon silvery clouds roll by yet I am unable to sleep for I am thinking of you tonight. Little cherubs soar through everlasting sky as my waking dreams are woven of you. Millions of visible stars scatter across black velvet night; I pull down the loveliest one and place it in your palm. And as I float away, sleep finally taking over, I offer you my hand and with it eternal love.

Finding Strength

F

Finding Strength

I can't tolerate this pain I hold anymore; I wish I could erase it from my being. I serve those who hate me; Love those who hurt me. I'm so afraid of the people around me; So afraid to be me. I can't let them know the pain I suppress; Can't let you see how much you hurt me. I have to draw my strength from within; The inspiration to keep me going. Where is it?

The Outcast's Prayer

T

The Outcast's Prayer

Every night I pray that God will hear the cries of those who are helpless. I pray for those who live in a dream, with empty souls and desolate lives. For the children who roam the streets afraid of home, even of sleep. For people who care but aren't cared for, for those who don't know love and affection. For those who steal just to survive with nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. For those who reach toward a warm hand to hold, a guiding light through the dark, and for someone to love. For those who are ill grasping at the straws of life, no strength left within their fragile, weak bodies. For those who lean toward a

Star

Star

I lay upon my roof and gaze up at the night sky, at the stars that burn bright. The moon's divine light touches this innocent face, yet my mind races in thought. I wonder what it would be like to be one of those stars. What would it be To hang suspended above the world? I could watch people and animals and travel to places beyond my wildest dreams. Oh, how my worries would be no more and no more transgressions would I have to bear. I would be a vagabond nameless and faceless, and then maybe I would be beautiful.

Wings

Wings

I wish I had wings to fly far away; I would fly away from this world. I wish I had wings to fly far away; I would leave behind this unbearable pain. I wish I had wings to fly far away; I would abandon this alienation. I wish I had wings to just fly away.

Outsider

O

Outsider

Outsider My face is plain and I don't fit in but to think I am not human is shallow. Please excuse the way I look, and pardon my uniqueness; I ask that you try to see that I am a person, too – a person just like you. I long for love like everyone else, I am far more fragile than I appear. I cry crimson tears while in my solitude, for pity is a shame. Each day is a feat as I force a smile through the knife in my side. Every day is a fight to keep my spirit alive; it is a battle that never ends. Unto my very last breath I must fight; will the battle never end?

Have You Ever

H

Have You Ever

Have You Ever Have you ever stopped to think about the way I feel inside? Have you ever stopped to listen for the voice that cries inside? I take a step and hope I don't fall, draw in a breath and hope I don't suffocate. I live my life shadowed by this mask with cautious smiles, half a frown. I don't mean to be the way that I am; all I ever wanted is for someone to understand. I want you to understand that I am human, too; I think, live, feel, and do just like you. Please open your eyes and do not scrutinize; I am not what you think. I beg for your acceptance, no matter what you see – please, see me.

Cheated

C

Cheated

Cheated A feeling that resides Within my very core I feel cheated Of all the happiness I should have had Cheated of My ability to love; Cheated of The ability to even feel. My pride and dignity I was cheated of, too; I tried so hard never To let that go. Now you have left me With nothing But a broken sprit, And a dead heart. So here I am Standing alone before you With nothing left to give, Nothing more to say. Here I am With my pen in hand And a muted expression On this ugly face. I was unarmed, And you took advantage, Robbing and cheating me Until there was nothing left.
See all

All I Have Left

These tears fall soft      flowing like rain          in rivulets down my cheek These tears never end       like the gentle bubble of the river          as it flows swiftly to the sea These tears       are all I have left           of my feelings for you

I Live!

Hello, I am indeed alive, even if I have not been active on this account. Two of my fan fictions have taken over my mind and I have been updating those on my other account. I have my poetry notebook out and am going through my poems from high school, and I might edit and/or rewrite some of them and upload them here. On a side note, I am also somewhat working on an original fiction called Hell Comes with a Locker which is a semi-autobiographical account of high school life from the point of view of someone who is a complete outsider. Basic summary: Alicia Adams is a junior in her small town high school. Even though she has attended school wit

Hello! For those of you who follow not just my fanfiction on my other account ~Amani-Ishikawa (https://www.deviantart.com/amani-ishikawa), I have decided to finally put something original up on here. I am going to be working on a series of fictions based on song lyrics in the near future. The song fictions will have lyrics intentionally embedded into them for fun, not plagarism, for the purpose of seeing how many the reader can recognize! I have the first of the series, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, posted already for your reading enjoyment as well as a gift for my mom. This one is actually a non-fiction as the Fitz was an ore boat that sank in Lake Superior in 1975. I c

Okay, I have decided that this account will be dedicated to my more professional works. I have removed my poetry from :amani-ishikawa: and I will be placing them here sometime this week. I WAS going to upload them tonight, but I can't find my freaking poetry for some reason. Hnn...might be on my other comp. Anyway...keep a lookout, everyone! I will post original work only here. My fanfics will remain on ~Amani-Ishikawa (https://www.deviantart.com/amani-ishikawa) Thank you and signing off! :salute:
