Done.

Done. Have you ever felt like you’re slipping through the cracks? Like everything and everybody keeps moving and progressing but you’re simply stationary? The world’s spinning and orbiting the sun with its planetary buddies within its own little neighborhood of a galaxy in an infinitely vast universe, and there you are. You somehow exist outside of all of this without even truly being aware of your removal. You’re witnessing. You watch and listen and feel and taste everything the same way that every other creature does, but somehow it isn’t the same. Somehow you’ve become a bystander rather than a participa

I Go Where You Go

Pretty little accidents In quiet, darkened rooms Subtlety is lost upon These cute, vacated tombs And when the time has come again You just let me know Where it is you're headed, sir, For I go where you go.

Such Is Unrequited Love

Day to day monotony And repetitive endeavors Arbitrary happiness Potentially forever Now hopefully I'm wrong And please forgive me if I'm right But unless to which it's given Frost hasn't power to bite Such has been proven in solitude With no witnesses to see So don't ask questions, and do refrain From second guessing me.

I'm asking You nicely. Please. Save me. I'm begging You, restore The life that You gave me It's diminishing to nothing I'm starting to fade Tell me, where's my savior For which I've so long prayed? Help me become self-assured Cure my codependence Assist my potentially Inevitable transcendence I'm losing my faith For I'm a little less blind Not only that But I'm losing my mind.

The cuts are open wide Nowhere left to hide Pouring from inside Her screams before she died A discontented bride She said she's fine, she lied Her sorrow is her guide And, oh, the tears she cried The blood that spilled on the floor Remains there still today A love she could take no more And so she flew away And to no one in particular She whispers now 'goodbye' She has a date at eight In her picture-perfect sky.

I never knew what I had until Everything was lost I never knew riding the thrill Would get me double-crossed I was naïve but now I see That you never really cared I used to be afraid to be Alone, but I'm not scared For who else is there to trust When it comes down to the wire? I'd rather be alone than just Let you push me in the fire The tears I cried watered the seed And a smile bloomed in their place I realize now that all I need Is that smile on my face.

Please?

I'm leaving you behind And laying you to rest The pressure's off my mind And the weight is off my chest A few tears here and there Will surely at times be shed But I'll take a breath of air To clear my heart and head I won't visit your grave site I'll burn the obituary I'm turning out the light Over your cemetery.

Short and Sweet

It's that feeling when I'm sad again Where I can sit with a pencil in hand for hours Just trying to shove the hopelessness and pain onto the paper But too confused to be sane Too devastated to make words to touch the heart So I write your name on a scrap of paper, that's poetry enough Lyrics to it's own song Whether full of sorrow or adoration are the rhymes, is yet to be confirmed I'll wrinkle it up and burn it Then kiss the flames and snort the ashes Piece it back together, and rip it apart Put the shreds in a jar on my mantle and start to cry on my bedroom floor The clouds are coming, but I have always loved the rain hides

for you.

would you love me?

My Bio
Wellp, here are the basic components to me:

-I'm eccentric (to say the least). I like black and I show it. I enjoy extremely loud music, some of which a lot of people haven't even heard of. I like skulls and bones and spiderwebs and cemeteries at midnight. And i enjoy who i am.

-My pass-times include school (against my better judgment), talking (a lot), music, basketball ( :heart: ), writing (poetry usually, sometimes short stories and/or emotional prose. i don't write actual stories, though.), drawing, painting, and breathing.

-I am very fickle when it comes to submitting art and/or journals to this site. Sometimes I'll do it daily or even more than once a day. other times this site will be untouched for weeks. I apologize in advance for any disappointments/inconveniences at this. :XD:

-I am not apt to change for anyone or anything but my own (sometimes erratic) whim.

-I am determined to someday rule the world and nothing will get in my way....

Current Residence: Amityville
Favourite genre of music: Rock
Skin of choice: attached.
Personal Quote: You do not wanna know what I can do with a hammer...

Favourite Visual Artist
Andy Warhol
Favourite Movies
Edward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street (anything w/ johnny depp)
Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
Black Veil Brides
Favourite Writers
Emily Dickinson/Edgar Allan Poe
Other Interests

So I'm Not Dead...

So I'm Not Dead...

To Anyone That Cares: I haven't made a journal or a poem or anything in forever, and I'm extremely sorry for that! I've been preoccupied lately. My hope and intent is to be able to submit more frequently. Just a little update(: I've been playing a lot of basketball, summer league for high school, that's been going GREAT(: and been hanging out with friends and whatnot. All in all, it's been a great summer :D Hope all of you have a great summer as well! :heart:

A little advice, please?

A little advice, please?

Our first conversation in over a month: Him: You can't do this...i refuse to let your friendship go away too. Me: What do you mean? I don't know what else to do. Just because I'm over you doesn't mean it doesn't hurt knowing what happened and what was lost without ever really knowing why. I don't know how else to go about it. Him: Well. Might as well try. Me: Why? Him: Cuz otherwise I'm wasting a great friendship with someone who knows everything about me and I still trust. Why not? Me: Because it hurt what you did and you can't take that away. Because I was seriously vulnerable and I might've done something really stupid because of it

Slump.

Slump.

My poems are getting pretty redundant. I don't know how to fix that. I write what I feel and what I think about and if all I think about is being so alone then that's what I write about. I don't know how to get out of this slump. Any suggestions will be taken gladly. As well as any suggestions to just be happy. Thank you.
