I view thine eyne as scorching flames of hell, Yet hell itself is sweet in fiery well;           I pray the worldly pleasures to provide Me with thy presence, and thou be my bride.  
You are still my muse. When i don’t know what to write i turn to You. You are my fountain of youth; You replenish me. i’ll never forget what being in love with You felt like
you left rain clouds as this dark night comes to consume me i can’t think of anything more fitting   i once had enough words to fill years of space your room in overflow as we spoke
On the 22nd of January, we lost you to cancer The family and I could never quite find answers  Why did you have to leave so soon?  How could this possibly have happened to you?
Dear Sasha,   Today I walked along the edge of the harbor In Medemblik, the Netherlands, With my grandmother's arm in mine. I noticed a boat among the others That looked like nothing extraordinary

To Those Who Wonder Why I No Longer Trust:
Coffee slowly dripped into my soul, A scent I once detested became my greatest comfort. Your smile wrecked havoc upon my mind. Clutching that cup as if it were your only lifeline,
Dear Lover I lost, I’m a doll crafted from scraps of paper. I’m small, I’m delicate, and I sit patiently in silence.
Dear divinity.   I have many questions for you That I'm not sure you'll ever answer Because over the last few years of my life My fealty to you Has grown less and less steadfast.

Dear Those Who Think My Life is Perfect, I go to sleep at night with one thing on my mind, what if I'm not good enough? What if I wake up tomorrow, and no one likes me anymore?
Dear love,
Dear, world You told me I was stupid for the color hair I was born with, You told me how unhealthy and skinny I was, You told me how "unique" my eyes were but how weird they were to everyone else,
Remember me? I'm the one that keeps you awake at night. I'm the one that keeps you on the run. I'm the one that keeps you locked away. I'm the one that keeps you at bay. I'm the one that makes your demons stay.
You are never alone, You are always being followed. An elusive entity That is connected by a thread.  
To that tree on the hill On that lonesome hill That saw me fight My spirit killed That saw me rise And roll through my free will  
Love,   I didn’t know, That you were always there; In the touch of hands between friends, In the embrace of family.  
  She wanted to be like them The ones with all the men With soft pink cheeks Instead, she was one of the geeks She had brains and wits

I am downstairs watching television by myself or, at least, I was. That was before the storm came. It’s the kind of heavy weather that weighs down my eyelids like stones wrapped around my ankles in a body of deep, warm water.
The world is suffering again;For the little girl made a mistakeNothing was allowed to stand in her wayBrown sugar caught her soulSizzling in a blackened spoonful
Lucy,   Green eyes smiling, the same color as the warped kitchen floor, or the grass that makes your toes itch   Golden freckles dancing,
My anxiety hits me in waves like the tides that crash on the beach, Hitting me hard and unrelenting and then Suddenly gone. Comparitive to the low tide when the waves are pulled back and reveal a soft and new beach.
Dear broken heart, The comfort of childhood friendships ripped away by the appeal of high school recklessness and self discovery. As you seem to find yourselves,
Dear Anger, You tear away at the best of me Cloud my eyes and all I see is you Nothing else in front of me comes through You are the demon inside of me Ruining the love I found
I met you two years ago, but I never knew your name.   I was a waitress at a food kitchen when I first met you. I instantly saw your pain.   You looked no older than twenty, but you had wrinkles like an old man.

One Night turns to six, six turns to thirty, thirty turns to ninety a sleepover turns into three months in a basement. A look in the mirror you see your clothes shrink.
I want to know the rhythmic beat of lust, The unstoppable wanting for more. Feeling the warmth of your body radiating against mine, Pulsating in perfect harmony.   I want to know the world with only you,
You gave me a starry night and an empty journal And said write down your beautiful thoughts. Shoot them across the universe. Plaster your words onto someone’s heart, It will adhere to another’s.   
Waves rock this boat as I sit contemplating the day. Every heave reminds me of the question not proposed. Every creak is the whispers calling me out. The sharks are there to bite me when I fall in. The whales yell at my weakness.
  The sun rises over a glittering ocean, With rolling and cascading slopes reflecting, Light beams of incredible colors. Colors that dance and swirl,
Oh my darling,What the world has thrown youWhat mother nature has cursed to youHow your beautiful mind has turned on youFor it is a rose flourishing in an endless supply of knowledgeEveryone could see its beauty

I lie in this bed waiting for the dreams to start. The waking dreams begin and as I glimpse the chaos, I breakout in a cold sweat.
I am the fish you won at the fair a week ago Do you remember the joy and love you had for me on the first day? How about the bright smile that shined on your face?

Dear Past Self, I know what you’re expecting me to say. That it’s going to get easier and don’t give up. Or maybe That this is only the bottom of the mountain And you have much further to climb.

The morning's gentle sigh, held me in my sorrow. Cloaked in shame, bathed in longing for love unborrowed.   Words fresh and foul. Aching to run, to flock, to howl.  
Winter has whispered it's gentle song, above and below, like an ancient tongue.   The streets are frosted, much like her eyes. I can't find her, not even amidst the blue suburban skies.

  Dear Moonchild,              You Will Never Break Me.   I knew I was playing the game I signed up for it the moment you texted me.
You were always skeptical of the future, uncertain of it all. You were never eager for another day, at times you wish they’d never come. Locked up in a room, sleeping for hours, even the best thing never seemed interesting.

Dearest Captivity,   What is about you that is so enrapturing? Is it the sparks? The flames? The way you blaze?   Are you a reminder? Or perhaps...

People are around them, shouting, yelling, pointing, screaming. The screaming is like a symphony of sorrow; prevalent and doleful in a way no man is meant to hear.

Dear any and all, It starts with a search. “I think I might be sick,” you type, fingers hesitant because each word, each letter you feel like, is crying out to the world, with the quietest of voices. Look at me. Look at me.
Dear Doubters,       I want to start first by saying thank you. Because of you, I was able to find myself. I found the person I had been searching for. I found the fight. I found the will.

Dear Future Husband, I didn't know you were looking for something, easier to swallow But For years I watched my father walk over women
He smiled and charmed you, he was nice to you in the beginning, but then he started to get violent, he apologized and bought you flowers and said  "I Love You"   Two weeks later he hit you,
Warmth. Drowsy. Burrowing into your chest, arms around my back. And then, like a gunshot, shaking. And tears. And disassociation.
"LOVE" A four-lettered house Exquisite design Transparent innocence building Four walls Of Trust, Communication Compassion, Respect   A foundation of stone Honesty
Clouds drift above our head Drops of water cascading Different these days
(Examples of what I believe are signs of a healthy relationship, and how the words "I Love You" can be used in a healthy way)   Oh, my love,   Because I love you I will build you up,
It took us years to build this trust The cornerstone of our love; Brick by brick we've gained the strength to rise over and above. But trust is not the only thing that kept these walls from tumbling;
Love is a tree that bends in a gale, but does not break. Love is a second chance, but not a third. Love is a hand that generous, but accepts repayment. Love is self-sacrificing, but not a scapegoat.
Love.   A crazy little thing. It sets our hearts aflame, makes us brighter, radiating stars in the crowded galaxy of existence.
My thoughts are chasing themselves in infinite circles. Everything circling back to you, The one who loves me, and whom I love
The cool wind subsides and a warm light filters into the room. My body melts into my bed and I bring myself to consciousness. They are also just now waking, and squirming under the covers.
I stood there as you broke my nose. All you wanted me to do was pose. My blood drips. Covers my hands and slips. Submission under recognition.  
I've loved you all my life.   For the luminous teeth that reside in your mouth and for the bloody tongue that rests upon them.
Your eyes. Your adorable, honest eyes met mine. On Water street, beneath the foggy, dark sky, blurry, dim moon,
Butterfly kisses up and down your neck Sweet nothings whispered at 3 A.M. Arms wrapped around each others waist loving each others  warm embrace. I keep you so close because I love you
Because you love me, you know when to be patient, gentle, forgiving, uplifting. Because you love me, you know when to take one step back and let me b r e a t h e.

On the way to my home On the dusty sidewalk I see a goldfinch Oscillating in an attempt to fly on broken wings   What would you do
Because I love you You should feel safe. I am an open ear, A shoulder to cry on, And just a phone call away.   We can talk for hours. Even if we don't say a word,
Because I love you,                               I went with war on my lips and death in my eyes the love sickness coursing through my half-starved veins.  
I once dreamed of the stars, thinking about their lives, and how they lit up the sky.  but why couldn't they light mine? I loved so hard yet I was pushed so far. Our hands didn't clasp.
Because We Love Amanda Aman   Love is conflicting like April weather An incessant downpour sequenced by rainbows and delicate sunrays Like love, the sky surrounds us and knows no boundary
Love rains from your sunshine eyes, Happy Beautiful Wonderful. I cup my hands, Love flooding over
On a cold night, while I sit alone, I wait patiently and think of home. A gentle kiss on my cheek awakes a spark in me, breaks me from my thoughts. He speaks to me in a quiet and steady tone,
The Earthly Angel The dying blue planet, his home, without True Pink Had not one to love him, not one to form a link.  
#BecauseILoveYou It’s cool and early in the morning And the sun is peeking over the horizon I slip on my shoes And skip down the front steps
Love: a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person. Love a four-letter word, one syllable, and it makes me think of you.
Stars aloft, strung up high Falling gently, and with a quiet sigh Nature basks in the radiance Without Knowing  Why  
  Because I love you, I will always be there to patch up scraped knees   Because I love you, you will always have a shoulder to cry on when you’re in need
She enters my mind with a whirling simplicity the likes of which I could never have imagined. She enters my ears through subtle yet joyous sounds, barely audible to the untrained young ear.
When you turn and look You see me Not my body, not my beauty Just warmth   When I look towards you I see you
  Dreams Of Tomorrow I have a dream, do you? No matter the hardship I still have a dream I have a dream of white and blacks holding hands together, do you?
You were not fallible, just full of fiction  You wished things that Heaven did not forget  Where the angels slept, you created a war Still you laughed when the sky fell   When the girl embraced the lion, they both transformed into dust Th
In my heart I've searched for love my entire life, but when you turned and looked at me in Chem class, I felt my heart beat for the first time. 
Age spots your hands and veins line your wrists, and your crow-feet’d eyes lie smooth against silk. I smile ‘round teeth that have slumped and have stained,
She keeps staring  With her sapphire eyes  Her pupils engulfed in white flames  Her skin cascaded with true colors    Hands and feet buried in smoke  The doves above her wailing in agony 
I am a dandelion Wild and free Not to be noticed upon first glance; It seems I lack the chance To belong in a boquet   They look on in disgust With selfish and hating eyes
My past is permanent ink on my skin; cuts that scar my body.   Pain flowing like an endless river, always fading to gray.
To be honest with you, he didn't know what he wanted. He didn't know what love was but just as an excuse to hold you hostage. I know you think I'm just like all the rest, "Oh, baby I'm different",
You’ve taught me The world will always be beautiful No matter who we’re standing next to But as I’ve grown the realize Because I love you
There is love in an ordinary day We learn from each other We argue and disagree But we find common ground Watching TV He flicks my earring Repeatedly I turn to him and demand him to stop
Are you having troubles baby, Is there something in your eyes? Are those tears of a lonely girl, Trying to say goodbye? Well I don’t have to tell you.
It’s okay if I’m not the girl of your dreams, or the one you dance with at prom.
A body fashioned in all directions When it glides across the wind Filled with the white drops of hope Pain; love. You were broken free of worry Holding chaste lips against yours As you flew,
(((I copied this from my previous account that was deleted, Please enjoy)))  
Teens from over the world need to hear this You might think school is stressful, but really it's bliss 12 year of learning, but that's still not enough So you think about quitting, because it's too much
"I love you" once sounded dirty to me.
My eardrums wait in silence Aching for a moment of connection Between a melody and a piece of plastic Love me the way my ears love music Love me the way they ring when the volume is turned up too high
Have you ever seen a hummingbird cry? Those crystalline tears dripping down iridescent feathers. Perhaps that is why it's wings beat so fast. A vain attempt to dry the dreadful drops before the blooming flowers see.
I REMEMBER A TIME WHEN I TOOK A FLIGHT OF FANTASY TO WONDERLAND ON THE PLANE CALLED CREATIVITY.
I had become accustomed to the monstrous features beneath his surface - The claws that grasped my hands; The cold lips that touched mine; The fire that burned in his eyes.
Because I love you, I understand the insecurities But because you love me, do not belittle me, because you will lose me You are the supporting details in a body paragraph
Tone and tension Blurred images and tears escaping Footsteps getting closer to me Warped floors and unsteadiness Flexing and cracking  
You went away So very fast The pain and heartache Made to last.   I held your hand And looked in your eyes It took everything in me Not to cry.   For your last breath
Her knees exude the sticky crimson liquid, shaking, they drop again. And again. And again.   She pauses for a moment, and ties her sweaty hair back into a matted ponytail. Gasping for air.
  This is my home and my family. You’ve taken my loved ones. Oh my friends forgive me, And ride toward the sun.   On this lonely barricade at dawn,
Love is not cruel  and bitter on the tongue It is patiant and flavorful  you were nothing of the sort you left my mouth dry begging for something I could savor I gave you love in a variety of flavors
 I love your lips when they're wet with wine and red with desire; I love your eyes the shape and color as those green eyes lit with a passionate fire. I love your insecurites as you brush your hands through your beautiful hair
I am the sun, he is all of the clouds  some days we are a powerful picture  and on the most unhealthy of days  he covers me in gray. 
You got the best of me When a stream of tears rains down my face Or when my mind is a blank space Of a never ending sea   You hold me tight
At 13, I first felt it The briskness of butterflies The heat of spring A seed was planted And a flower began to grow. As winter came, The green wilted away The wings clipped off
You once told me that Shakespeare's words were burning. That all of the passion and the romance and the decadence made the beauty go up in flames. You said that's why our hearts long for love.
I am not her I do not have the effortless waves that fall below her shoulders The works of art created that exceeds any previously set expectations   The good grades Top athlete awards Perfect social status
Last time around it was 25 to life this time around it's A New Life a new beginning Come on with me they gave me attempted murder aggravated assault with a deadly weapon
"I love you", I hear her say as a tear falls  down her cheek.  Her cheek  full of makeup that she uses  to hide the pain  like a mask. If you look deep enough in those hazel eyes, 
I feel it again,The ferocious beating of calypso drums,Coursing through my fingers,Creating foul beings.These false shadows of which have burst forth from my skin,Have created a jazz band of sin.
There's this unspeakable feeling in my chest  Whenever she looks my way  It's as if the butterflies in my stomach  Are making their to my heart There's this moment of euphoria 
Love can be similar to the midnight zone,A dark place where no sunlight reaches,Carnivorous sea life lurks there, And survival is the most important t
I know when you’re upset just by the small changes in your facial features My smile widens because you’re laughing hysterically at a terrible joke I made
Don't Panic, Don't Freak out, Night is coming, And you still living, I am Relaxing, Don't Cry out, Don't Run.
Sometime you need to stop, Think before you do, Don't be mad, Dont be sad, Just chill.
Because I love you I'm willing to get a B. My GPA can drop, my deadlines pass. My dead eyes pass over yours and brighten. My bright responses deaden as my hands hold yours.
The Sweet and Dashing LassBy Briley Wells It seems the ever astounding and perplexing pen has called me yet again to expel it's ink onto paper for the sole purpose of bringing a smile to your face.
His eyes were blue, Like the sun-setting sky. Above a stormy green ocean, But I had to say goodbye. My eyes were blue, Like a cool forest night. Without stars or distractions,
The cradle is where it is taught that love is a gift given by the stars -  who fortell our fortune  before our first breath.   It is told that love is a light -  patient, kind, and merciful.
You
A light sigh,A natural high,From just a sight, a sound.With you, love is found.Your light br
The walls around me are closing in and I don’t know if I can get through to get out in time.   The shards of glass pierce into my skin, but I am numb to that pain. That’s not the problem. 
The colors in my brain make more sense to me than the words that occupy the spaces in between them. They form the story of evil and heavenly that is printed on the pages that represent my life.
The leaves they fall, the wind it swirls, movement, The air turns brisk, the frost it nips, cold front, The summer fades, Winter returns, lament, The weather is changed, from playful to blunt.
When I was young,  People walked the streets, taking life for granted. But when you know you’re going to die,  You cherish every moment you have left.   
“I Am From…..” Adapted by Levi Romero Inspired by “Where I’m From” by George Ella Lyon   I am from the living room from the couch, tv, and popcorn
love is a lot like eating:like lovers are food splattered on a buffet,a feast of desire,and you're stuffing yourself full,
Because I Love You I am patientBecause I Love You I let you make your own decisionsBecause I Love You I will support you
With thine hand,Touch ever so softly,The petals of that delicate roseAnd pluck it not,For out of lustful greed,
Equipped with shoes hiding 10 toes, yet not exposed. Toes of yours are something I wish to hold. Incoming call for two;
Mother, she is light. She bounces off tin-foil lakes, soothing tides. She warms the back of my eyes every dawn. She is a sunspot amongst freckles and stars. She lets me look on beauty.
Sickly sweet sweat stains my face, As Specters’ kisses dress my lips, With ghostly fingers my shape they trace, Caressing my cheek, my breasts, my hips.
These four walls staring back at me They hold my secrets If these four walls could talk Oh how I wish they could and would talk
He spit ink into my throat, told me it would soothe the ache I felt. It wasn't until a week later, when my lungs collapsed, that I realized he was hurting me.
Love is like a bird singing a beautiful songs to the atmosphere 
I'm suffocating in the middle an open field. Fresh air all around me, but I can't use my lungs. 
We cry every  day and every night yearnig for someonet to say we are beautiful wanting to know how it feels like to be loved and cared about enough of having to  cry bcause of how we look and who we are

Oh America America what have you done Treating them like animals what have you become,   with no interest we have thought of them With no feelings we have trial them
Outside with the cuties You look at me how the moon looks at the sun I feel the cherry blossoms when I'm with you  Let's stay like this forever in the blue moon of New York 
Two warm human bodies. Two pairs of footprints upon the beach sand laid side-by-side, pathing towards the water. Two smiles and uncontrollable laughter, as the blue water splashes around playfully.
She realized that it could not work When he hit her And it hurt And when tears ran astray On a young, weary face There was something deep inside That had dried beneath a fiery gaze
  He adjusted his yellowing glasses Gathered his scattered thoughts And cleared his scratchy voice He began,   It matters not

Her
No one knows about us, Not her parents or mine. None of our friends, or teachers. So when we held hands, That very first time, I became addicted to her. The feeling of her fingers,
Red is a whole symphony of violins and a single rose  Red is all lyrics, music and often prose It tells of lovers and it tells of war it's heart breaking stories from old folklore 
True friend my equal my confidant. You empower me. Reciprocal trust positivity acceptance. we inspire each other to be the best that we can be. I can be the real me.  No regrets.
I just woke up today with something I  have to say It seems there's no other way... I remember the first day when we first met I was left with plenty of desire and fire never once thought of any regrets
Because I love you I won't let you down Let you down by leaving you alone Or crying in your bedroom,bathroom stall Because I love you I will care I will try to stay strong, smile Laugh, even be outgoing,
Black ice bites fingertips. sharp edges, shrapnel travel up long bladed, byzanite blue fingernails. Thin frost, covers a dandelion ring. Her strong hands, always chilled.
Because I love you, I set a table of love. A table of perfect, abounding love I lay this out for you. I set the table
Because I love you, I set a table of love. A table of perfect, abounding love I lay this out for you. I set the table

"Because I love him," is what I tell my dad. Because I love the way our eyes lock when I enter the room. Or when he grabs my hand and acts as if I was the best thing to happen to him.
True love is bringing me my favorite chocolate filled donut in the morning, Not because I asked, but because he was thinking about me in the donut shop.  
Because I love you, I will kiss you goodbye Every time you leave for work Go to the store
Because I love you, I let you into my heart I let you feel every beat, pluck the strings like a harp   I told you my secrets Every thought, desire, pain, dream, all that I have has become yours.  
my body is aching as I write this to feel the large strong hands of someone who will be my lover and protector to have those hands caress me all over feel me up study all of my features and crevices
It all begins with the First look.The meeting of eyes that sparks a flame inside your stomach.The infallible desire that follows a simple glance.It devours you like a poison that has no antidote.But what is It? That word,Love.So meaningful,Yet so
While he sat at home high and numb to his feelings for me  I, fully sober, grew to despise him.    I never thought it would ever happen, but here I am, without him.   
The lights were dim and we were together. The DJ spun another record and under the faint illumination of the chandeliers we swayed. You spun me and I felt like royalty.
All I want is a true love. Someone honest, with integrity. Not a liar, whose so corrupt. He should have the honor of a true knight. A heart of gold would do too!
Look at me up and down as You lick your tainted hungry lips Does my meat not appeal to you? Does my pale skin not make your mouth salivate? As I put my body on display for you to 
Sex is such a given At this point, I wonder what else People will ever seek In a stranger. -ajh.
People being together is an odd thing, stranger in a digitized environment/in-between Facebook messages, Twitter retweets   and Instagram hearts/ and sometimes an email or two, but never  
It is terrible. All the hatred in our world. How can this happen?
I love you, Through the dark days and through the lightened days. I love you even when you're away on business.  I love you wehn you're mad at me. I love you when we talk things out.
A frienship is a flower that sprouts and blooms with hues. No matter where it's planted it thrives despite the blues.   It could be many souls or perhaps just simply two,
Thanks for letting yourself back into my life.    The beats of the music you sent me  swing in my mind like a pendulum  they envelop my mind, 
  If I look at you I can see my future, The dreamy twilight wrapping us in envied silence, coy smiles and wispy words sliding over unsaid emotions,
You are crisp summer grass, the crunch of fallen leaves You are dandelion tufts floating on a spring breeze You are the muffled crunch of winter's icy freeze You are the sun and moon, the mountains and seas
We had been thinking this is a fable, Until now we are seeing it with our eyes. The floor has lost its balance for our table, Even in the midst of this chaos you can hear distant cries. The roads have been covered
A populace of mortals Grown blasé to The once quizzical nature of survival Begin to crave substance in living  
  I entered into an unfamiliar room Didn’t know what to come of it. Leaving old friends behind Will always leave a wound   Looking for the light
A path of black stones lay under my feet and I travel along it wherever it leads, through forest and canyon, over blue lakes I wander along, whatever it takes. And ever so often, an oddity

The bruises and scars I received for sixteen years define me. I am broken and damaged almost beyond repair, my hopeful heart was shattered into a million pieces.
What does the word love mean to me It's the thought of being free It lets your heart open to the air Why must I know where To find what I most desire My heart is so close to catching on fire
I feel the love you give to me It's so sweet and sincere Like honey Not that artificial honey That all natural kind
Little girl, little girl What do you see with Those brown eyes of yours? I see my daddy throwing mommy
Tonight I cried  My arms wrapped around my pillow Tonight I was thinking of you  And how every time I fumble  Every time I fall  Not only do you help me up, you raise me higher 
Laying back to back I think to myself why are we fighting?  What was the reason that we are here?  I remember.. something small. I wonder what he is thi- what was that? Take a peak. 
Deep amethyst spikes that are meant to penetrate through life’s setting, Like fireworks going into the sky and exploding. Deep colors coming in to light up the oceans over the days,
It feels like a storm, Loud, gloomy, and yet so calm. As hauntingly dark as nightfall, Yet still light like a rain cloud.  
Because I love you: I’ll make sure you eat and drink, I’ll stop pestering if you say “I’m not hungry.” Because I love you: I’ll wipe your tears when you cry,
People will always express that they never meant to......... after they hurt you but their actions will always prove they had the intent to   Now you cry about your new foe

Love is one of the most intimate things you can share with someone.  Entrusting your heart and emotions to another And in turn, keeping theirs safe. "This love will last, through thick and thin," they promise
A kiss, a breath, a touch felt only by the wind I cannot see the trees; The leaves are thick And the sap that makes the core sickly jealous "This is what love is. Can't you see my dear?"
She cries and she screams. Some find it funnier than it seems. They point out the shape of her waist, pigment of her face, and history of her race.
I long for the abyss spirit and love beyond the universe from my family especially my mom and sister I long for I crave for a deep conversation a passionate kiss, adventure with not knowing where I'm, moonlight lit by millions of beautiful bright
You smiled  I laughed  We sat at lunch together  He made fun of me You punched him I was shocked, but glad The Day Of Love slowly crept by You bought me flowers But I bought nothing 
You need to    change the way you look, the way you dress, the way you do your makeup,                     
And the problem here is: I don't know if I love you anymore...Because I've loved you, (oh gods how I've loved you) and it's hurt.
Caruso’s party was filled with the same lunatics from last year.
Early in the morning, from my bed i jump My heart with fresh new blood i feel pump. Like an athlete I sprint into my bathroom Clean myself and return to the bedroom.  
I want to be the one person who can make you happy everyday…who can put a smile on your face for no reason at all.
I want to be the one person who can make you happy everyday…who can put a smile on your face for no reason at all.
When my blue eyes gaze at your plump pink lips as they smile at me, The whole world fades away with a rush of overwhelming happiness Because I love You.  
I used to think that love ment vacancy. so i carved out my body, left me hollow and empty. Set up a bed in my rib cage, auctioned off my teeth to  buy a new rug, shed my skin and made it a coat,
We put makeup on, and pride ourselves on being perfect, but on the inside we are all broken. We are imperfect beings; shattered mortals. What man can judge lest he be judged himself? Not one of us is perfect.
Because I love you,  I see things through a new filter. Colors are brighter, the air seems sweeter, and every touch feels like satin against my skin.   Because I love you, Love feels tangible.
I am freedom and equality I hear the cries of the oppressed I see the anxious faces of those waiting for their fate to be decided I am the “American Dream”
They wonder why, why we can't sleep at night, tell us such pretty lies, why we can't sleep at night, the anti depressants are too tight, acid and synthetics wearing off, haze of something crimson,
Spring  sprouted alive in his smile, In the skies turned an iridescent blue,In the winds that matted his hair with wild lilies,In the early morning dew, In the thin and transparent leaves
He’s vast and broad, I'm curvaceous and fine, holding deep timeless wisdom His gaze never strays, Watching me renew, With his ancient blue eyes.
Because I love you, I hide the stars Behind bars. I tell the moon to stay awake a little longer, The sun to smile a little stronger, The rain to cry a little harder, And for you to be a little smarter.
I am an ocean I am rough and wild and relentless Brutal You do not treat me as if I am Delicate Sea foam spun by the quells of love You look at me
you are more than I deserve than I will ever deserve you are the cool and glorious rains that fall blissfully to the scorched lands that have been plagued  by drought
you are more than I deserve than I will ever deserve you are the cool and glorious rains that fall blissfully to the scorched lands that have been plagued  by drought
It was the day when you were born I decided to quit and I had sworn I am not looking back at those good old days I know I will be hurt in some different ways  
In first grade, I was the bright girl with almond eyes,My eyes quite brown, even amber in the sunrise, My skin always tan, bronze from summers of swimming,And the endless hiking,    
What brings me to a state of tranquility and relief Are the sweet, youthful harmoniesDelivered from a melodic instrument made of polished carved woodWhat a beau
The flame flares, I see it reflected in your eyes  Or is it mischief? You take my hand and pull me Onto the dance floor as we Shift and sway to the beat, My hand in yours, trembling.
Its not protest  its just a disaster White people mad Because we don't call them master Black kids are broken because Some dont have a father All lives matter  black lives matter,
LOVE is like war: easy to begin but hard to end LOVE is showing you that we are there LOVE is showing u that I care LOVE is to be thought of LOVE is making u smile a mile wide LOVE is like a magical mystery ride
Inches of snow, flakes falling to the ground inevitably sticking to the ground A blanket in used condition with some wear tear is wrapped around a man The shoulders of a bruised, starved, and ill man treated as an animal, a hound
I waded in the waters of nostalgia, of heartbreak.   Dancing under the veil of midnight glamour, the ghost of laughter admist unkept promises.   Silence, fractured her,
She was found.   Strangled, beaten, chained, by holy words and humanity's god.
i found home in your heart but it stopped beating I pounded your chest with fists full of love I ripped up these new carpets i hated trying to find something worth fighting for
4 Quarters By: Darius Anderson Three quarters gone one more to go I can’t go on anymore My right ankle has been taken from my feet
He slept by my side, now his eyes are open wide. The last thing he sees, is a bloody image of me. I didn't mean him any harm, yet he cried out, sounding my mental alarm. It was her and me,
Julian! Oh, bruh act like he don’t hear me? Julian!   We got some unfinished business Bitch! Square up ‘n run that!
Ever since New York I tried to change my mind pushed away these little things and these little white lies. I was only 18 surrounded by fool's gold. I had no control as these fire proof clouds
Why
Displaying consideration When it's the last thing you've deserved Bearing an open armed heart While forgetting the gossip I've heard Accepting every one of your burdens What strength you had shown
Now I sit here alone, as I cry and I write these notes. As I realize how much you love me; beaten down, stricken bone, up on the cross and you still told this cold and lonely world how much you love them.
thoughts that kill thoughts of being not worthy  voices saying “no love will ever come”  trying to not give in  the voices sometimes stop  give the heart a break  before it breaks even more 
At the beginning, there was nothing No time, No matter, No passion Light was dark, Dark was bright Through the nothingness, Into the void Welcome e nvy...
My heart bleeds and cry But my eyes are dry I wish to weep But I feel so weak I've lost it all Oh what a mighty fall I sought for mirth and pleasure Fallen so hard without measure
The day of spring was gloomy   the mood was melancholy and grey my state of mind was rather despairing from all the negativity
Picked from the finest bush and blessed with a glorious fate, passed from One to Another only to be stowed away in a faceless glass in a nameless place… Never wilting and told to await
It was not her long, flowing blond hair, Nor her smooth flawless skin, Not her slim figure, Nor love at first sight Not a mere lust for a beautiful
I am something I wonder what I am I hear the clicking of heels I see the big, sparkly dresses I want to feel special I am something  I pretend to be a princess I feel pretty
I lived in a land of snow and stone. A warrior’s dream come true, A fight to be had around every corner.
once upon a time in a land far away a girl was afraid of   a stranger who did not belong and sisters who were fake   maybe just one, she says taking the pill with a swig of water
I miss you, why did you leave me?  Was it time for you to go or was it just time for me to grow?  Did you know that you had to go?  Because I wasn't ready for the show. I wasn't ready for the pain. 
At first, I thought I was born to do this. It took a while to realize that mole was not, in fact, just a mole.
In a land far away not that long ago there was a girl named rapunzel with hair the shade of gold   and she was bold you see because in the land of lost souls the only thing to watch your back was the drifter you called your shadow she stood up to
Once upon a time there was a girl name Anna. Waking up one morning with a white streak in her hair, Not knowing why, she went to ask her sister. However; her sister never came to the door.
Once upon a time, a miller lied to the King“My daughter can spin straw into gold” he utteredHis imagination turned wild: eyes glittering“But what am I going to do?” she shudderedThe girl was locked up in a room!
With my prominent chin, Dyed hair, And closed lips, I glanced at my stepsister.

He ran freely around his backyard fighting the dragons and monsters with his imagination. Knowing if he uses the sword that Daddy made for him it will protect him from anyone and anything.
He started out young, strong, and invincible. Never wanting to stop until he reached perfection. The climb to success wasn't easy, but when he finally got there he still felt something missing.

I can think of many things I would consider exquisite. like the way the body bends cracks and creaks when you wake up.

  She walks  with her head held high, Without fear of the future,  Letting the insults and rude comments, Brush off her shoulder like a child going down a slide.    She glides, She waltzes,
Pop your collar, working class hippie, rainbow kid in work boots- scorch the earth with defined footprints.
I dreamed last night that you had died Why had I not tried harder to bring you from that brink?   I dreamed last night you burned in flames engulfing you in every way
It is dark down here. Down where there aren’t many people the shadows swirl into fearsome shapes and sinister forms; like the smoke rising from a extinguished candle.
We are all like Sunsets. Uniquely spectacular in our design, yet all made up of the same colors.    We are all like Records. Our microscopic grooves and notches are what produce our melody.   
Seldom do I hear the rushing rain in December.Yet here it is, pouring down the metal and siding, making a waterfall-like audible sensation.Thunder crackles in the distance and the
II looked up and saw a solemn darkness with muted stars that dotted the face of the sky like freckles (nary a constellation in sight!).
I am overwhelmed at times with a sudden wave of urgency.   A pressure builds up inside of me and leaves me with only the racing thump of my heartbeat and heaves of breath  from my crushed lungs.

Meadows with sunflowers, golden leaves, and trunks of history represent glory. Purple lollipops, green skittles, and pink starburst represent children. Brown tables, beige curtains, and blue light bulbs represent vision.

Time goes byAnd I am still inside this crystal globeDaydreamingThinking about how life would beas if you were still here.  
A ray of light that veils the woeful night Is how I see this love I newly found. A running stream that filled my hollow bight, And beauty oh! Too subtle, too profound. Ah! Lips on which dost vibrant roses bloom,

A year ago I had been frozen. The frigid frost had seeped into my mind, Spread into my heart no matter the obstacle I had set before it And I could not stop all my senses from becoming numb to the world.   
There once was a boy who wanted to fly. He was an angel who fell from the sky. Tumbling, tumbling, finding his feet, He stood up, feeling the newfound heat. His wings had lost feathers, matted and torn,
I'm looking at you while holding my hand. Like the world is stopped, you can't see me even the wind is passing. My mind is still towards you, it hurts to love you. I can't empty my mind and it's sad.

I journeyed through the world, overland and overseas. I was born where the sun never sets and never rises. I was purged out into a place, where the heat became my second skin.I went through thick and thin, and I became an African prince.

I am Lost A roaming soul left among the trees A sapling learning to grow on its own This is fine though  I appreciate the silence left only for me I find comfort in the thought of loneliness  darkness
I cried out from my inner soul the darkest deepest hole I ever sowed. The smallest sparkel of hope that grows into a blinding light I once behold. Have you seen my faults? or my impressionable thoughts?

3AM
I was stuck in this 3AM daydreamwhere the music was faded through water,and I couldn't hear my screams. I was caught in a cage with all borders closed. Tolerance was terrifying, but I already knew.
And today I wonder. With the faded sunshine Whisked away on the breeze. With the soggy sponge of earth Slurping at my feet. With the smell of warmth
Different, Yes, But just like you; Only I have a gift. I can make castles, So pure, So clean. Watch, I'll show you. This city, A city of glass,
Blue and silver stars twist together to create a flowing skirt behind her as he holds her closely by the waist, softly, gently, always so delicate. They dance, getting lost in the song.
I Am   Now if you were to find me You’d find me at the green house The one that has the giant tree That house on the street Where you’d hear the creaking of the screen door
The heart aches as if the skin has touched boiling water. The cries of the child pierce the ear of a struggling mother. The father has moved on with the daughter. Leaving his old love, and
Another morning comes, another day has started Your still not here, my heart is guarded   Gone so sudden yet so soon You didn’t deserve to go, my world feels so doomed Almost a year ago this happened
People around me Flock like locusts They whispering As if were rats on a putrid lake They say about me Things I had not done For I corpse at front of them
All of them asking about you Give birth to the sun the day asked about you When the evening Reflected the light of the moon from your window asked about you The birds, which you left them with thirsty
don't try My Darling The fruits of my tree doesn't fall Hasn’t aftertaste Wind and rain stripped distance Deadline to my passion Distance is did not saturate Remain in my memory only the eyes your lips...

You reach for the knife, slide it in deep enough to cut, and reveal the contents inside of a card. Those dreadful words, "Thank you for applying we are sorry...." You set the card aside along with the rest.

I refer to it as a battle. The battle between order and chaos, light and dark, sane and insane. The battle that is within us all. I admit, it has never been easy for me.
Golden gleams glitter the salty floor Wet with tears that flow like a shore. When the suns first rising and you hear your daughters snore.
Manmade stars seen through ash shadows blanketing this city made numb, the unmaking of man, thread unwinding from its spool too quick to remember.
"Shut up, you nerd. Nobody cares."
When the sun goes down, the vast majority of people like to hide underneath their heavy, ivory comforters with a couple of coffee stains here and there and they fall into a slumber for
January and new beginnings Followed by intense wrestling in February Little old ladies in their gardens at the end of March Listening to a good record during an April shower
Phone at one-hundred percent, Music app opened, Headphones plugged in, Zoned out.  Brushes gathered,  Paints wet,  Cup filled with water,  Ready.  Image has been sketched.
Life can be overwhelming. (No, let me restate that) Life can be Condescendingly, Overbearing with its Unrelenting,
  Growing up, everyone said that what your family does Will reflect on what kind of person you will become when you grow up. After hearing this so many times
A pounding initiates inside the layers of my flesh. It moves like the feeling of the bass that accompanies that lyrical-catastrophe. My feelers tap on wood. My headlights become unfocused.
Are You happy? Honestly, are you?
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. (Genesis 1:3)   A single drop of water creates a ripple in the pond, And the ripple resonates through the waters
A journey to begin Many to love and enjoylife with For our time will end
Once again My heart has beaten into a fresh puddle of dawn The sun has licked my eyes awake  Chance sits on the other side of my front door. Outside, the grass waits for my toes
Leaves are falling everywhere Piles upon piles scattered on the ground The bright colors, which seem to glow Red, Orange, and Yellow appear That's why Autumn is my happy season
Exhuberance, legitimacy to the word that is what he is He is my lord it is you Brendon Urie who I adore your voice like a songbird Echoing through my mind as I imagine his perfectly chiseled features
My dreams turned into nightmares My nightmares turned into reality My sun into darkness My smile turned into tears My laughs turned into sobs My skin turned into scars
A falling tree cannot crash with a thud In the absence of my ears, A rising sun cannot illuminate my view In the absence of my sight My day cannot commence Without me, to bring its light  
☼ the sun peeks over the rooftops warming the sliver of horizon visible from my window city pigeons transform into morning doves silhouetted against soft yellow melting into blue  
One thing that effectuates me  is what she shows in her smile so convincingly Something that’s simple and common to most It’s the way she smiles laughs and boasts
I am lost and all alone But I feel it Once again I’m just a blown out candle But I feel it There are tears dripping down my face
Waking up to the crisp air I yawn as the day begins, a shower to put a pep in my step and start a new adventure called today, My morning playlist blasting away as I groove into my clothes, a mound of clothes form as my indecisive nature kicks in,
Wake up at dark and at school by six, Head to the field to learn something new. Practice and practice some more, Get in step and get in form.   Time with friends and family at the games.
Early mornings with Colombian coffee is how I start my day Early dog walks with Luna and Rocky is how I get energized Warm water over my body is how I get prepared for the day
Joy does not linger eternally When our desired reality becomes fantasy We get drained of energy and vitality What I turn to is my cherished memory My memory is not a melody or someone else's fancy
The pungent aroma of the coffee beans welcome me, the bitter, yet invitingly warm smell as I pass through the glass doors of my favorite place to rejuvenate.
Sometimes when it snows I think of dying. Not dying because I want to, but dying because it can be beautiful When it snows it’s almost as if there’s billions of angels falling right beneath and above you.
  20 years on earth I've made ton of sorry things like I've been soaked in the world of mistakes.   Not being an eye candy amazingly beautiful was a mistake
Thanksgiving Day   I slip in and out of dreams. I drift into darkness, lightness, and finally into the crisp glow of daylight.
Gaming with some friends Laughing and chilling with friends Stressing with my friends

Wake up! Rise above hatred and become unique! Make a difference by stopping the racism! Let me tell you about a young African-American girl stopping her fellow white classmates from being racist to her.  
Dust swirls around my face My shirt sticks, reluctant to release my back Hot sun covers everything, and brightens the area
My dad held my hand  and told me it would be okay. Looking so elegant and tan, the music starts to play.  On the top of a Mountain, my dress flowed with the wind. Your eyes met with the horizon 
Every Day The sun rises  I open my eyes Alive The greatest gift given Another chance  To improve my life or that of others Every minute Every second
Hope is a raindrop,That cuts through the air,With purpose and pride. Splash. Hope is the ground,That waits patiently,For the magic that lies beneath. Shh... Hope is a root,That silently reaches out,To help others grow. Swish. Hope is my motivation
Basketball is what gives me that lift          to me it's life pure gift  boucning the ball up and down the court  basektball is much more than a sport  lving in a world without is impossible 
Whenever it has been a long, hard day I come like to come home to something sweet, Water is boiling on the stove top Ready to be poured into a warm mug of tea.  
Here dead lie we because we did not choose To live and shame the land from which we sprung. Life, to be sure, is nothing much to lose; But young men think it is, and we were young.
Looking upon the white void before me An infinite field of endless possibility A blank slate to build any kind of world of my desire I run my hand over the blank sheet of paper that makes me feel free  
I’m emotional.  I cry a lot. But these teary eyes  brown pools of mud, drip only for a while before they flood into a heart broken pile.   Books, trees, paper.
Every morning was the same routine but this year I was certain it  would be different. Waking up to go to school is not the same as it was last year.
Knives thrust deep within the backs of others; Smiles that keep igorant minds at bay; Words that break barriers and bones alike; Deception and destruction and acts of strife.   In a world so empty of hope.

A life of regret Feeling regret over even the smallest things It all builds up and makes the weight on one's chest heavier Closer to having the strength to overtake you
Crying Without holding back the tears Has become a habit for me. Almost everyday, I either watch something sad Or think about something that saddens me. But it always happens in the night,
To the boy who will one day Hold my newborn daughter, Hold her, gently. You’re probably still in high school Right now so I’ll break this down Into a form that you might understand.
Studyin' all day Gotta boost my GPA Get to work by five Concessions at the cinema dive Cleaned up the puke and condoms Found poop in a cup Reeking of popcorn when I hit the door
Life is like a puzzle Something that seems fun but causes trouble It could lead you to absolutely mystery   By living you are creating history   Rainy days may come and go But never stop you aren’t alone
Life is flying, flying day,King and crown pass away,Luck and fortune dont stayBut I never leave behindHow you walk and smiling talk.
The island I wasn't born on felt more like my home then my own house. The crisp island breeze against my hot sun kissed skin felt refreshing.
Deep in a random meadow, With willow trees and orange leaves, Fall is among us. The dandelions and tulip blow in the wind, With purple mushrooms, dancing all around. This is my happy place.
What makes me feel good?? A day with friends, and all the ends. The cheers , laughs, and little bends Without them I don't where I would end. A Good day with friends is everyone tends.

“I will love myself despite the ease with which I lean to do the opposite.”                                                                                                   -Shane Koyczan  
The pure delight I am greeted with every time I come home The warm snuggles I am treated to every night The soft snores I hear just as we fall asleep together
  To make a boy a soldier Give him a uniform and gun. Tell him living is a sin, And to curse the wise who run.
The city lives there on the  sidewalks of West Rogers Park Chicago. I can hear its rhythm

Cleat hitch release me Bowline do not slow me down Set the boom at 23 Hand on rudder bye to cape town The wind will show the way Sea spray on my face I am starting a very good day
The problems of life are nothing but a storm Gusts of wind swaying you back and forth Raindrops pelting you, your shivering form Flashes of light gleam, menace like a riot
walking through hallways of deceased childhoods and wet pillowcases where little boys and girls couldn’t find protection in their own homes their lips cold
When im feeling down or upset I go to my friends for help. There always by my side There like my own guide. Sometimes i go outside kick around a soccer ball and take my time i relieve all my stress
Sitting inside on a stormy day Listening to the beat of rain against the windows   A dog with floppy ears and soft fur that curls up in your lap and falls asleep   Firelight on a summer evening
Why do I never get bored, you ask? Why do I never get cold? Why is my mind a safe haven for me? Why does my youth never get old? Because I can daydream,
I love the beast hidden within me, sneakily behind these quiet eyes, only unleased when it is time to unwind with a good ol' game of air hockey.   The two shiny quarters in my palm
The stride in your feet When your hustle everyday of the week The exhaustion when you breathe yes it's true I'm proud to stand next to you. There is no one like you I must honestly say.
Sometimes, life gets me down. so down I begin to frown. Sometimes, I feel like no ones there. Plenty of feelings, bottled up in a square. I try to hide the feelings inside.
The starting sound of the motor.  That rumbling noise that lets me know it'll take me anywhere I'd like to go. The hard but exciting feel of the steering wheel. Those empty and curvy streets I take smoothly.
When I feel like I am six feet underground I look up at the sun and say, This too shall pass. Then I feel dirt as it hits my feet, legs, stomach, shoulders, arms and face. So I lie there.
In my heart I’ll remember the spring trees and the taste of fruit early in the morning before the sun rises, high in the sky, and paints the world with color.
There's no love like that of your mother Nothing compares, not even that of your brother They know when you're happy, sad, angry, glad tired, hungry, desired, hangry
Instagram,Twitter,Facedbook.. Snapchat,Ifunny,Youtube.. Always working smiles on my face, Like bees working toghether to make sweet honey. Oh!.. the giggles and smiles they create,sweet ole temporary happiness.
A dream A hallway, my heels softly clicking as I walk The polished table A clipboard Perched precariously on the edge
I felt something I haven’t felt, in a long time. The feeling so, powerful, so indescribable. Does music just seem, unremarkable?
Diamonds.   Cut Like Diamonds, The Earth, The sky. Cut Like Diamonds, The Mountains High.
A slight hum that esculates , transforms to a melody  . A rythem so sweet , it could wake  your taste buds  .
I like me but sometimes I don't I even hate me sometimes but that doesn't mean that I am any less beautiful I am deceptively strong in both mind and body I have red hair
This pain is simply pulling me apartCaught between you and the freedom of hopeThe simple irony of your oath"I promise to let you breathe," Yet your hands are around my neck."I promise to let you see," Still you are all I know."I promise to let you
How I greet my day:    Not with a smile spread across my lips Or an energetic laugh Making my two friends holler with joy As I spill out a witty remark.   But rather With downcast eyes
  Early hour calling—it’s a calming rush of ease Now sleep is over and I can now cease To lie in the dark, with her long tendrils falling
One thing leads to another. When it rains it pours, at least that’s how it seems to be when it comes to me and bad days. Or any bad thing in general.
Her smile glowed as she passed by with that yellow dress of hers. The ruffles that flowed down her body so sweet it captured the eyes of few but the hearts of many. She was a dancer. Ballet had been her life.
I woke up today hoping last night was a dream. Because last night I did not know. I didn't know that the next day would be different.  
A few can see the small faint beauty of the nature But I wake up to see the new beginnings of every passing day. Faint broken disk merging with the misty clouds in the west
I am not feelin’ good. Instead of staying in my sheets I will hit the streets It was a bad day But this will be a good run.  
Woods brushed in rich glows,Brisk fragrant breeze sweeps the air,Fall shouts its hello.
My Melaninated & Unapologetic Brotha
I slumber on and without aid Some say I'd sleep for 40 days (That's my mother's exaggeration)   I snore and snooze peacefully With no care, at complete ease  Til harrassed by Sound and Vibration
On midday, after school, a boy picked up a beautiful guitar the color of sunset; He tuned it and proceeded it play it, to play the music of his life, the sounds of his soul, he relieved all his stress.  
I have hair on my legs, under my arms, and on my crotch, But I do not consider it to be any different than the hair on my head.
I live inside of a voidAnd I stand directly in the middleCountless faces take shape in the darknessAnd circle me, ever-changingEvery time I lock eyes with a phantom faceThe features rearrange

I open up my weary eyes, A soft light do I see. Greeted by a bright sunrise Content just to be. On its way to give us warmth,
rain, whispers on my skin fat droplets of shimmering, glistening, liquid sunshine it’s peaceful as can be   mist,
When I'm feeling bad And not having fun I want to sleep And avoid everyone   My depression drifts Like dead leaves blowing Falling into darkness My anger glowing  
We are shot when we are compliant  We are shot when we are defiant  There are mothers crying There are children dying They want to keep us institutionalized I know what the Germans done 
I pick it up And turn it over It balances perfectly in my hand No chips No dents It's ready to use My feet on the line My arrows in the quiver Ready to shoot
She DEFILED herself!  Body pains, sunken eyes, flaky, sore, bleeding lips and her body as cold as ice. She chugged the water to silence the rumbling of her stomach as she walked out the door. She gave all the right answers and was

Our nation is based off of simply education. Children began as small as five years of age. Stuck in a classroom all our lives. Made fun of or excepted as who we are. Hurt or made whole.
    I cherish the idea of being sensitive in this world, of being soft, of being kind, so I write poetry.

I hate mornings. My alarm insistent consistent I always wakeup late. I look almost dead. A bird has nested on the crown of my head I look in the mirror. God! Look at those bags!
Of course you couldn't hear the screams of a boy crying out in pain. The lonely voices asking you for help. To you the screams are just sweet laughter of the kids playing tag. Guned down,beaten because he's black.
My words are deafened by the sound of an unspoken tongue;A language more ancient than mankind itself.She uttered phrases that Shepard's used to heed their sheep
I need someone to hold me, To wrap their arms around me and  Squeeze the sorrow away   But I know I can't have that sometimes, And that's okay; It has to be    Release me from this anger,
I lay in bed, waiting for that bliss moment to be taken away from reality, and into my deepest desires 1, 2, 3... I'm gone. I enter my imagination. I'm in utopia; there are no laws,
I know a place of love, one that's just sublime I spend my time here daily in the summertime In this place I can be myself, not what others like I laugh and goof and smile on our many hikes
Roses are red Violets are blue Food makes me happy How about you Sunsets bright with their orange hue Sunrise pink, orange and blue Happiness is all around thee You just have to look and see
The Sunset is so magical , that it lights everything up ... It's powerful Orange beams so enthralling , It's like being served elixir in a cup .
the sky may be gray but once the heavens open  openings shall shine
Glancing outside the window, To the world shrouded in coal-black Clouds that in the wind billow, And my attention is brought back To the delicate lines
I place my hands in yours, for you to call it your own. When your fingers interlock with mine I am not alone. So I behold with you the feelings of togetherness, our hands holding tight;
I sit on my padded bench and examine the ivory keys I breathe in the smell of old wood and I stretch my hands with ease   The pedal creaks below my foot despite the gentleness of my press
I want a life.. without stress...... I know a place....... It's uterus.........
