Upon the lovely, of America’s golden plains, her monuments of past era, made of steel and glass, tempered with the fires of hope; cast cold shadows  over astonishing rage of times.   
im over dramatic im annoying i dont have any self confidence i hate my personality i ignoring my sadness by making jokes about it i need aprroval of everyone i wish i liked myself  
If tears were blood I could finally get what I want
In a state of grief I was in complete disbelief,  How could someone hurt me so deep? How did I cope feeling as if there was no hope? I'm telling you it's no joke.
That song It’s playing again Evoking memories Memories best left untouched But still, I listen to it I let it play
Splashing, flowing, leaking Over my fingertips, spilling at my feet Spirit bleeding Joy fleeting   fleeing  
Cloudy today The weatherman would say Of me Of my mind Clouded haze Foggy thoughts Like wading through the humid day When
God please write me quickly i'm running out of time, my family has no time for me  and i can't say goodbye. it's not the words that stop me, nor their meaning make me cry,
  the birds  and the bees teach me to see
Life is a dreamI never thought I'd see. One where the flowers bloomAnd sing to me with
her pleasures in the shallows end   as the riptide guarantees 
Each relationship begins As a blank canvas  And ends either
Things are falling apart again-I've gotten used to seeing it happen.I can tell when the silence is irritable;I can tell when the communication is troubled;
The sweet embrace That gently calms me Until my dying days It adores me A pale skin, lacking color Has such a beautiful, silver luster The dreary look in my eyes Reflects the crying autumn skies
I have a little blade box, It's hidden by my bed. It hides all the secrets,  I can't keep in my head. So if I'm feeling bad, or want to sink into the dew, I grab my little blade box,
Quiet is a scream Louder than a cry Creeping is silence Asking us why   Quiet is a shred Not yet a a thread
He tasted like mangosi couldn't place it until the next daywhen his lips were no longe
Again I lay in bed,  searching for a distraction  to block the dark thoughts stuffed tightly in the back of my head, for I am afraid to rest in my own mind. --Far Away Fallouts (c.p.)
I keep my heart locked up in a box Guarded by a dextrous black fox   But with a glance from you the fox was slain My heart thrown into a hurricane   Round and round it tumbled and swept
I remember your singing, my favorite sound When suddenly my heart started to pound Something different, something strange Was the reason for my mind's craze     It was you.    
Glassy eyed vixen. I stare into thy eyes. Sparkling like a wildfire; Such feelings I can't deny.   Long black silky hair Oh I did not dare touch. But my thoughts are impure;
I am among the unseen And you are the light that stands before me. As I close my eyes to sense it, But it never reaches me. I am among the unheard And you are the voice that echoes so faintly.
The sky is so empty, So gray and cold, So barren and wasted. Clouds fill the air But nothing more. Scenes of despair and darkness. Sometimes a bird Breaks the moment;
This little bottle of chardonnay; My escape, my stimulation.  And you My every motivation, unending infatuation.   Each glass with every momentous sip The taste of grapes dance on the edge of my tongue,
Time waits for no one And I stand still, frozen, Unable to keep up. I chase and chase, Yet the seconds speed up. Round and round, the seconds speed up. Minute by minute, the distance widens.
You forsake me for another And leave me cold and lonely. You torture me with your eyes, They greet me yet they ignore me. You taunt me with your smile, It sends comfort but mocks me.
When you smile your smile It takes me away from this reality. And when I see those eyes, I'm suspended in a life-like fantasy.   Speak out a fresh breath of air; Orchestrate a conversation for me
We've been through ups and downs (The good, the bad, the smiles and frowns), But I ain't giving up on us. So believe in me, this is more than lust. It's you or bust 'cause YOU is a must!
I didn't mean to lead you astray; I'm weak, as weak as anyone or anything can humanly be. But the passion that melts me inside is for you. I lay besides an emptiness that is only meant to be occupied by you,
Even though you tore my heart in two I'm still in love with you. And if one day I can love someone else, I'll have forgiven you And I've learned to respect myself.   When I finally learn to let this go
Throughout life, there are those too important to let go. But no matter how hard anyone holds on, We'll all end up gone; There's a close to every show. You were precious in every sense of the word.
who are we now sometimes i don't feel like we're the same souls whose eager teeth met by the brick river on days like this i wonder what it would be like to be us again-
it feels just like bleeding like you’re slowly dying and as you are crying, hiding, alone at night you and that fearsome thing,  praying that you could feel something other than pure, plain sadness
A single seed, unknowingly holding burden She doesn't know anything The hate she must determine She's locked up in a world of imposters a world full of monsters This seed which was planted
Life full of So much work My greatest love Has turned beserk Smother me My head hurts Cry in my tea Tears on my shirt
I could see that pain and hatred in your eyes The moment she spurned you as childish and unwise. I know how it feels to be scorned and chastised. I know how it feels to go against those baptized.
I rejoice in sharing the earth With someone so lovely as you. I think of your face and I'm filled with mirth; My joy and happiness can't be subdued. But despite this thrum of ecstasy, I carry great trepidation,
You have been held many moments But in the morning, what's to find? Face after face, all fading into one. Growing cold and distant- Wondering if your heart is still capable, of just coming undone.
The ones that sit alone, in the back, that are quiet have reasons. Not many can understand them
You say there is a God, I ask you where You say you must believe And he has a reason   He is hurting me I am fifteen
Every time I write I just want to find a way To tell you the same thing With words that are new Every time I write I hope this time someone will hear me differently Every time I write

to you, who loved me without love:   it has been so long. three years ago You were everything. had not touched me yet
To Life Death,   Lacking sleep, food, and will I am coaxed into movement by the soft voice of life. My oft-cited realms of self-persistence
Dear [former] Best Friend,  I hope you've not forgotten memories of childhood fun and fantasies. Dear heart, do you remember we were sisters too? Who once shared hurts, laughter, secrets? It seems
Sometimes at night, when the second-hand ticks endlessly, forever mocking me for my inability to grasp the embrace of sleep because I am too busy thinking about you and the burn
Dear Doubt,   Thanks for clouding my mind. Making my ambitions blind.  You know how to break me down. Leaving me breathless and grasping for life. I had a panic attack because you! You bitch!
3:50 AM I wish i knew how you really felt. Are you here because you choose to be here, or because you felt that you had to be?    I wish you knew just how hard i've tried.

Dear Adventurer,    As you reach the Forests, The greatest challenges await Tests of your true self And desire to adhere to the path.   The trees' darkness emanates with pressure
Dear God, Or Maybe not so Dear.   Where are you? Where have you been? It feels like I’ve been on “Read”             forever.   Where were you?  
She
I miss her so And I want her to know That although she let me go
Why can't you just be happy? My brain is hardwired for sadness You look tired. Are you sleeping? Sometimes. It's hard to fall asleep Why is it so hard to fall asleep?
I bottle things up Hold everything in I don't know why Then, I hit the breaking point   I suddenly feel everything All emotions at once No one around to see Is it the best way to be
You told the bird you don't like the way it sits on my wrist. You don't like how it would permanently stay. You don't like its meaning. And to make you happy the bird would have to sacrifice its own life in pain.
Can something that is beautiful be haunting? Can something that is haunting be kind? Must we wait through the night Til dark fades to light
Pain Something we all endure Something we all hate People don’t like pain Neither on the inside nor out Pain
   im trying  my hardest to keep my head up    but ive been pushing through as best i can        no matter how hard i  try  i cant seem to    make friends    it seems as though i'll never be able to communicate  
It was your toxic love that made me grow It was your toxic love that showed me the warmth hidden in winter And the chills from the summer It was your toxic love that made my tears break free  And your empty words 
You want me to talk about the realness of this - fine I believe I am so depressed that it should be a disability I feel like my insides are rotting and turning into
Dear Future,
Seventeen. First job. A boy named "Percy" Or so his name tag said. Months went by.  Text message after text message. Snapchat after Snapchat.  Dating. Dating. Dating. 
Fall to the ground,  my falling leaves  and branches that home you. You were once pretty things floating above the earth in your vibrant green. Yet devils and demons have had their way 
Dear Daisy My dear Daisy dog I miss you more than words can describe. I wish I could have been there with you for the last breath you took. I know you know it was out of love and not a betrayal.

Death brings sadness Obviously Funerals bring family Obviously The body in the casket brings tears Obviously  
I know you're hurt. I know you're broken. I know that you thought the last time that this happened was truly going to be the last time. I want to start off by saying that it's okay. It is okay to not be okay.
To those who have felt my pain,   Have you ever felt the pain, only eleven years old and already wishing your life was over the other kids don't treat you the same
Take a look inside my disconsolate mind,And what do you find?Thoughts so evil and dark,They leave an everlasting mark.Are you afraid now?
Dear Rosarian, Will I find you in the garden Where you tend the leaves And mind the breeze And care for all it's beauty   Rosarian, Rosarian Have you ever seen beyond the garden
Thy heart shall love with icy flame Searching, searching Driving away Giving hurt and taking pain Hoping, hoping For love to play
Dear My High School Peers,   Filled halls... head down Breathe... breathe Only four more years Three more years
Dear Appa,   You’re the one who can see the way words move and yet to you, those words are not valuable. Sacred. But worth nothing. For me, words are everything.
Some days the dam breaks. And the laughter you've been using as a mask turns to heaving sobs And the floodgates  open to the salty tears And you could begin to rebuild the wall

Dear Will, Both to my past self and my inner strength: Did you dream about becoming the way you are today? When you were younger and brighter and waiting to open up, did your goals match my tired eyes?
I’m just a human I am weak, and I am strong. Please do not hurt me I know I am wrong.   The wind howls loudly
No space between, at least not seen,A gleaming gild shines there.A golden scent from air is lent,The heavenly pools in pair.
Teardrop smile,She rolls with grace.Sad.Happy.Angry even.It rolls with grace,Your teardrop smile.
  Cowled in darkness, standing there, A hooded figure ‘stride his mare, I stand before him silently, While chilling breath shears through the air.   “Your time has come, my mortal child.”
  Pain and Sadness Joy and Glee, By these words you may know me, But is it I you truly know? Or just the me that I borrow.  
Dear Nana, How are you? How have you been? I've been trying to be happy but how do I begin? I remember your last day like the back of my hand Little did I know time was running out like dripping grains of sand.
Dear High School… Dear Institutionalized Hell Hole… Dear Teenage Years…  
I think of all the hardships I’ve endured, and the streets I’ve crossed. In the end, I still feel lost. Is fate a thing?
It was when the happiness was abundant in life. It was when all I needed to be happy were some toys.   It was when the bad people only existed on Superman.
Dear lost lover,   I miss you in the morning. My coffee doesn’t taste right without the hint of your laugh that you used to add to it. The birds don’t sound as good as they used to without
She ran to the outside and stood in the highest peak, She looked up at the Sun, who looked like he was going to weep, His rays, tired they were
On top of a mountain surrounded by snow.Eyes looking everywhere where did you go?My fingers slipped right from your graspedand led me to my life's last. Where did you go?
Blood rushed down his arm  Just like tears rush down her face There's fire in his eyes And an overdose in her veins   Lord help these children, they've dot so much more to live for
i sang a song to Sirens and even they cried for me, i told them what you promised  and how you chose to leave, I sang a song to Sirens  as my soul began to bleed old wounds under new ones
Dear Sadness,
I tried to be strong But strong is not strong, And crying is not wrong If it happened again I would be weak I would not lie down and take it. I would cry and weep and make it impossible  for you
It feels unusual to open your eyes. In the morning glow, thats blinding. A slow rate, accelerating like your being reborn, like your entering heavens gates.
When they told meYou had gone away,I didn't thinkThey meant forever. I thought you wereOn vacation,And I was jealousYou didn't bring me. But even now thatI understand whatThey said,I still wish IHad gone too.
People don’t understand that words can be strong and once they are said, they can’t be taken back despite how many apologies are made. 
A beauty it is To not be able to feel the emptiness That engulfs me--yes, beauty.    05.28.16 - N.N.
Morning dew trickled off my eyelashes Like an afterthought of last night’s storm I fell asleep drowning in my pillowcase 
Her Storm screams pain of something most won't understand, It's Storm of sorrow, belligerent pain. Rain is a new phase. Things are washed away and starts anew... untill the next passionate rage. 
We are not our brother’s Keeper but that does not make us his Executioner. What right have we to take other’s lives from them, like a thief in the night?
  im sorry Yall probably wont ever see this but this needs said im sorryI know at times it appears otherwise but i love you all truly i always have
My dear brothers and sisters,   A father’s love is like no other. He loves you and he respects you And though you might forget that sometimes,
Dear Sadness,   Thank you.   Without you, I would be flying And soaring way too close to the sun. Without you, I would be undone.   Thank you, for grounding me.
Little girl, now don't be sad, I understand your pain,How you feel there's no way out,That you have gone insane. That you're a recluse through and through, No friends here you call home, The conflicting anguish inside you,To fight it all alone.  T
dear elizabeth, how are you? i hope you're doing well  i, however, am ready to raise hell i'll spare you the details, but i think you should know that things are really fucked up and its starting to show
 The eyes of the devil are staring at me, waiting for a mistake.           Like a predator, It glares madly to each of the steps I take.  
I don't have scars   I've never felt the tension and the sweet release a surprise so pure and innocent Breaking the surface   raw, primal pain sharp breaths Tangy, coppery
   From this decrepit window I see the clouds flash brilliance Orange and purple and pink, Colors so foreign to this tiny room, Colors that make you think    From this sorry window
My love for you is unfathomable I envision the life we hoped for, but I’m no longer what you need.   You pushed me away, told me to move on
Dear All, I am everything and I am nothing. A creeping shadow in the black, abyss-like corners of life. To gaze upon my cloaked, physical form, That of which was comprised from a stereotype and guesswork,
To others that do not understand, they call you jitters, uneasiness, or maybe worries but you are so much more than what it may seem.  You are anxiety, misery in its purest form
I always told you the truth I figured it was common courtesy But you molded it Into a monster you used against me. I watch you
Dear Loneliness,   I remember how you came into my life at the age of nine When all my friends stood together at the front of the lunch line  
You gave birth to me in the month of October while my father peeked over your shoulder. You raised me with love and compassion always and I desire to follow in your ways. On a cool morning in June of 2004
Dear mother,   You were naive, and young, and not ready for any of this. But you wanted this. You wanted this, unprepared. Blinded. I was handed off,
Sadness affects all Brought by evil in the world Stopped by not a soul A feeling dreaded by most Yet happens way too often   A boy goes missing  The mother weeps for her son
Dear Love,   For someone so nurturing to others You sure are disloyal to me Why is it That you come so Faithfully.
Nurses, Should be nice.   Or at least that's what I thought.   They didn't care about me.   Hurt yourself? Stop crying.   Lonely? Oh well.  
To the girl with the beautiful soul,  
last october english class our gaze meets you smile and turn away this moment, haunting my thoughts for days on end I twist everything I've heard you say  making myself believe you like me
Even if I pass away, The world will be spinning, Wrapped around the sun, As dusks falls, And morning comes.
Dear Sleep,  Thank you for the comfort you bring. For being my safe place, when my feelings are too much, when all I want to be is numb, when the world is too much for me to handle, when being me is too much.
I had a dream last night, and it got me thinking about you, You're crying right next to the windowsill, and you say that I don't know how you feel.
I often wonder, Why are we here, Are we born just to die, If so why, Why is dying the only guarantee in life, Is there life after death, All of this begs the question...
Bone crackles Spirits lift When the flame drifts All is lost   No silent tears No silent fears When the smoke clears All is lost   The Earth keeps screaming
The urge is overwhelming,My body and mind wants it so badBut the scars cannot be hiddenIt is an addiction.
I heard a song today and I immediately thought of you. I closed my eyes and I swear I was there again. I'd heard this song for the first time that day. What a beautiful song. 
The cacaphony of the tape tearing. A moment ago it was there, the next it wasn't. I floated away. Craving one last moment. One last memory.
And the scars from the blade that remain on the wrists of an elderly Mrs. Strange have faded... She smiles knowingly as if reading my thoughts The distactions of  youth abated... The eyes alone tell the tale.
I remember that day I had heard it many times that day, Someone else had lost time. Who? I wondered. As if it was a broken record, frantically reaching for an answer in my mind.  Who could it be?
The monster isn’t under your bed or in your closet anymore but reidentified as savage thoughts and emotions monsters, like enemies, fighting an infinite war in your head
I’m from a small town, lonely and lost, my dysfunctional family, with a lost hope in humanity, growing up with so little, so little to love,
  That single year broke me Dunked my head underwater, Took my breath and choked me. I couldn’t go on any farther.   It was what I’d always asked for
In my little bottle I gather up my rays of sunshine,my rays of happiness and glee.In my little bottle I gather up my friends and family.In my little bottle I stop negativity from entering,
That girl Susie.She came in school today.Those kids pushed her around the hallway.They threw her books into the pond,Out the window,And in the woods.
Through the Years
On this night I'm in fright, Yet the darkness is at bay, For the shadows are lifted by moonlight. Normally hidden by the day,   But now on the move, I shall follow,
i never believed anyone who said they'd found their soulmate i never trusted those  who believed in true love until it was me writing crazy love poems to stay grounded and 
Do not say anything, Not even a word. Even if you want me to, I connot ablige. Untill you have seen, My life through my eyes.
You were a fucked up kid, so was I Because of you No problem; mom she did everything she could You should've used a condom But no; I'm blessed and love the people in my life You can't screw up that too
My anxiety cripples me I take it on as a first line of defense My tongue’s as sharp as a knife, I’ll cut you with my words until you bleed apologies I’m the kind of anxious that gets too comfortable
I saw this man alone in the brisk cold; He wore an eskimo hat to keep warm. A passing girl praised the hat, and behold- The man offered it to her, against norm.
You cannot cry for them, They don’t care. They don’t, And it’s that simple.   She excludes you on purpose, Pushes you away. You thought she was your friend, But I guess you thought wrong.
Away I run, To the land of the free, Where doors can be opened without sacrificing yourself for keys, Dirty knees, My girl back home cannot make money, Yet she is sold off and people think it's funny,
I can see the dying trees And the blooming flowers, The strikes of lightening  And the drizzling rain.  All through my window I can see these things.    I can see the working bees
Emptiness and sorrow, They all say it will get better tomorrow, Yet I am stuck in the mistakes of my past, While everyone around me is moving by fast, Standstill, standstill, My body turns into a landfill,
Belac, my Belac, my unknowing Belac. . .    Did you know that the first time I saw you I knew there was something?  The wiff of your hair gel stayed with me Like smells that are meant to be remembered forever
I know that look in your eye. That you want to cry, that you’re scared to die.   But have no fear, Dear. Do you know why? All your troubles will pass by, I promise you that is no lie.
A Letter to My Mom: Mom, did you know? Did you know it was your time? You couldn't let me know I wouldn't see you when the sun shines? You couldn't call me to your room and ask me why dishes were in the sink?
To my ex-lover, You were my first real love, My first serious relationship. You taught me how to be in a relationship, How to love, How to be compassionate, How to commit.
My LoveHe was mean, but for an unknown reason Kind and loving all the same He was protective of those near him, but never too much to let them know how he loved them so His walls were strong
Why don't they just shut up? They don't know a single thing. They have no clue they are my problem. I want to stay away from every single one of them. I don't care if they are "family"
I wish not to be forgotten Or my seemingly numb heart Because of the things I’ve said But did not meant And my dry voice
Dear old soul, You can not see it clear, But you are my biggest fear. You have hurt me with your lies, And all your "Oh babe lets compromise" You have stolen my sanity for your own sake.
Seas vanishing Waves crashing Eyes fleeting Tears dropping Hands clenching Throat tightening Voice rising
You are the one who is truly worthy. The type of gift that I will always cherish. You come from a culture that is earthy. Our mutual love will never perish.   My mind is tough, but my heart was broken.
  With the poinciana tree in view, I’d at my window sit, Starting the day in meditation made the tree a perfect fit.   Yesterday morning, the tree loppers came, Watching them made me feel almost lame.
Crickets chirping, light off suddenly she's in the dark.Heart pounding, mind racing, just her & her thoughts.Good & bad, the wish I could's, was it me? What did I do?
Sad
The world is corrupt with sadness. As I look into the sky all I see are dark dark clouds. As I watch sadness take over the world,  I see just a bit of happiness. That is slowly slowly disappering.
  Alone, in a destroyed forest     It stood in the middle      Elegantly composed     Surrounded by burnt trees and flayed shrubs    
Buy into the aestheticI wouldn't spare you a dime I am my own butcher of my edifice Not a single truth nor a single lie Could slow the ebbs in current Could stop the rising tide
Because I love you, I keep secrets beside the ones you know. Like how I’ve already named our three kids and two dogs, because I’d sound like a creep. Or the nonsensical conversations we have when you talk in your sleep.
The weeping willow An interesting fellow. Is she really sad?   Her drooping branches Can hide contempt and sorrow Only known to her.   And i never know If the weeping willow tree
The three simple words ‘I love you’ hold mass amounts of worth People do crazy things for love  Good and Bad  Healthy and Unhealthy
In the mirror, I dread The ancient scar on my knee The mysterious mark on my cheek The great size of my thighs The stubborn crook in my teeth The several creases on my stomach
somedays i feel like there's nothing to live for somedays i feel there's no need to move on sometimes i wonder what's going to happen next
I can pull it off,Don’t you dare take it from me!Just believe in me.
Woke up terrified,Told you I was fine, I lied.Did not see I cried.
Because I love you, I am patient Waiting as you ramble about things I don’t care about I am patient as I wait for you to message me
Recycle my thoughts Place them in a box And set them away in the attic. Take the good ones And fog 'em with clouds. Instead bring the cold ones,
Fight the urge. Stop the urge. Let pleasure fade, as regret is made.   Don't let them in, don't let them know. This is something you cannot show.   Your fingers ache,
I tried it. I will try anything once. I tried to trust you, believe your promises. I tried to follow you even if you were wrong. I tried to love you, trust me this time.
Because I Love You   Because you are mine, because you are yours   You've seen me at my worst, and held me true   You've seen me real, I am free   An open book, 
Day One: This morning I woke up crying I miss you I couldn’t talk to all the well-wishers I couldn’t even talk to my mom I miss you
there is nothing more resilient than a flower with bright and reverent colors and soft dew sluggishly moving down the petals as the sunlight beats down on the delicate
I wish you took his hand in yours and I hope you guide him to your shining light he is not saved and he needs to be because he is too important to lose
My skin used to be an armor and as courageous as I seemed it was all just this facade that made sleep make me feel like I could be redeemed.   But I was lost and I wasn't me.  
I wear a mask. It’s my smile in the hallway. because while you think I’m flying high, really I'm  fading away.
it's late to be thinking about youwe went our separate ways over two years agobut we also said i love you a little over three years agothat's what sticks with methat you left and how you were my first love
You were never there Nothing but pure neglect A child was born A moment that you seem to forget Nothing but a dark cloud Bitterness sadly rears its ugly head Just take accountability
I run from the room, the wing whipping my face and stinging my already red eyes. You never think it will end up wrong, you only feel it when you get there. I sit under the tree, and my stomach is sore from the sprint.
You come home and slowly close the door, The smile you had on slowly fades away, You stand there for a while, Unable to move, Unable to breathe, Suddenly you fall back, The door supports you,
Let me paint you a pictureI’m sitting on the edge of a cliffmy feet are hanging offand my hands are placed on the edgeone on each side.There is a nothing holding me backfrom shoving myself off this cliff
A friend just asked me If I like anybodyAnd that one question Brought back memories of another time when That question ha
We were fine, My mother had money, Built a new house, We lived in a good, thriving neighborhood. We didn't know what we escaped would slowly creep up on us. Gunshots echoed across our community 
You’re in my mind You’re in my heart You’re in my vein You’re in my blood You’re everywhere I never want this to change But, one day, I know it will And here’s what I’ll do
Do you want to know what my biggest fear regarding you is? Do you want to know what I worry about the most when I look at you?  
I wish I could stop. It’s getting too overwhelming. This uncertainty about where I really stand with you is getting old. It’s consuming my thoughts and I hate it.   I hate how much I want you to be mine.
You look at old pictures,  Which trigger past memories. You recall distant friends Turned unsuspectiny enemies.   You remember a time When you weren't so pained, When you could stand alone
I can feel you slipping through my fingers What we once had was so solid I could grip it. At times, it was all I could hold on to. Now - you are falling, falling, falling... Dripping away.
We used to be inseparable, But that quickly changed.  When he came along,    By you I became estranged. 
Two teenagers stiffly walk on train tracks, sporting ripped skinny jeans   (and other edgy bullshit). They stop at a bridge- the pond below sits frozen.   Snow peppers the ground around it.
Sometimes I'd rather die than continue to be swallowed by this deep, dark, depression of mine It's like a black hole that won't let go, and I can't escape with an inch of my soul
    I remember the anxiety during the drive there The way the sweat raced from my forehead to my cheek I remember how that awful place looked like a villain’s secret lair
Darkness strikes Nothing but a calamity Anguish, sorrow, and grief sadly appear What a major catastrophe Through the hurricanes and earthquakes Countries are in a state of ravage
I could be just like you Never happy  Burying myself in the color blue Everywhere I look it's blue Except the sky Which is filled with a thick gray Or I could be me
Do you ever feel like you don't belong   Because you're not in a group or a click   You lie in your bed at night feeling sick  
A healthy relationship. What is "healthy"? Saying I love you when you get off the phone? A good night and good morning text? A like on instagram? A tagged picture?
"Why?" you ask  when you don't see.    "because," he says  before he makes you believe.    I, the word  to show who my brain hates.    
I dont wanna cry. I dont wanna lie about what happened in my past anymore. I dont wanna wake up in the morning and see the same face that hurts me everyday. I dont wanna see the sun anymore.
Mine old friend, I wish you my new lover I long to be with you but cannot speak Mine passions scream, though my words are quiet
I lay in the bed My eyes swollen with tears Completely restless And drowning in fears.
If you only knew how special you were to me, you wouldn't treat me like you do. But you treat me like trash because you don't know how much I really love you.
You always had a smile full of knowledge and life Different from others at school yet, they treated you like a fool   In the last days of summer the school days were a bummer
Im not here to lie, so lets have some fun If I had a fairytale it would involve only one No, not jesus, moses, or even his son It'd be a man, yes But with brown eyes not blue
Something I like to remember when I need to cheer up Is that I was not a part of the plan I wasn't thought to be possible
writing, seeing behind teary eyes: lies in disguise; love and hate, war, we paint
Look at her bright and cheery face, dotted with tears that intertwine and lace. Is she happy? Is she sad? Does the fact you cannot tell make you mad? A superficial glance at her,  the eyes confuse and obscur.
I can feel that things aren't right. Mom working late barely making it home through the night. I can feel that things aren't right  When Sussie leaves the bathroom there is blood on a knife.
Stolen from the sunrise Whispered by the moonlight Never remembered but by a  Steady heartache and the Secret guilty thought Somewhere faraway They plead for your sake;
I am my father's daughter I no longer have the long hair he tied up for me, no space to put the jade pins and flowers His own sword was held in my hand as I changed my hair, as I changed my identity
i write you a letter, in a clear hand, to tell you that i am no longer willing to be trapped, in your chains, in your walls in your endless emptiness that you fill with the voices 
Just for that moment I felt love  I never wanted to leave your arms, for I will never feel it again  Even though your eyes were red  Heart sank from the words I said  I told you them so carelessly 
Darkness sadly storms on in And you find yourself sitting in a trance All opportunity has passed you by You wish you would have another chance But, you have hung around the wrong crowd
I wake up to disaster. I go to be in loneliness. I spend the whole day in depression. If you love me then say so, but I wont believe you anyways.
When the message is spoken How many of us really listen? Awareness is everything But, we sadly live in a oblivion We search for truth And yet, we come up empty Darkness surrounds us
I dream as any other does, and I breathe. I see as any other does, and I cry.
The two sides are fighting, no one is sure why, is it about control? is it about emotions? I'm afraid no one knows.   The cycle we are caught up in, is dangerous to me to you
Masks hide the face from everything, with many shapesColors, and ShadesA mask of Purple hides my depressionA mask of Red hides my angerA mask of Pink hides my feeling of love.
i remember i sat there, in my cold seat along the last row you were there, a building and a world away the thought of you suddenly plagued my mind i knew i just had to write something about you
Once there was a boy named Jack, Whose family was in a state of lack, To correct their financial down, Jack was sent to town,  There he would make good of his vow, And trade riches for his family' cow,
They drip and slide so quietly They are coldThe tears form a puddle And into it she looksAnd sees her reflection Such sad, dark eyes And the girl whispers Through cracked lips 
Do you ever wanna cry but the tears won't come?For the fear, and the shame, and whats been done.Do you ever wanna cry but the tears are drowned?All you left with is an angry frown.
how do you write about silence? how do you write about sadness? was the silence broken by crying? was the sadness broken: did it vanish? how do you write about defiance? how do you write about fear?
Face plant off the third floor  The blood splatter paints a pretty picture of why he didn't matter And who's sadder the committer or his encouragers Such a shame he had no one around to feel his hurt 
Let's say hello And bid us adieu When we dont even know What we're going through.
She cannot trust you anymore You have hurt her deeply Willing to always help But, you have tortured her completely Everything is thrown out the window Fun times have sadly become a memory
You have no love for me! As the concept of admiration Seeps through teeth of a mouth at grin. Just as an angry shade of red  Would color spotted grief Upon the face of the cruelly  Disfigured.  
To the slaves of freedom.
Why? Am I like this? I'm sick of you...   I hate you,  a little. Not a lot, but I hate you. at least a litt.le.   I'm trying, to figure out what
my eyes won't get any less redand my heart won't get any less deadif you were to buy me everything in the world,or lay me down in bed
It has become so that tears and water droplets are too similar.
The last step I took was forwards, then backwards that's like riding in a Benz and then pushing an Acura I always tell this sob story, they say don't chase after her
We were kids turning pages, in a couple year long love story and it ended pages ripped, i'm sorry.    My starry eyes didn't last, dear diary, I kept them waiting, then left them
To write about happiness is unmarked territory and I wonder what it's like over there. I wonder what it's like to be in love with being alive.   Is it like entertwining my hands
Sadness floats like dust through the air. I can feel it on my skin. And sadness like dust can be seen. You can see it in contrast to the light. If we had no light, We would have no beams of dust.
The metallic whisper of the tin roof Greets me as I enter. Air full of dust motes, Wall full of holes. The lonely call of a blackbird,
in the winter of one’s cracking white bones holding traces of a shivering soul small crystals biting into the blue fingered ghost
You used to take my breath away with just a single glance, Suddenly appearing behind me, You'd beg me to slow dance.   I was captivated by your confidence, And eagerness to impress,
My minds demons are brusting to be free, the neglect of my past keeps fueling in me. Too many things left unspoken, too many things left undone, broken pieces of everything I love.
My bones are swollen. They swell against their joints. I know they are not. I know they can not. But that's how they feel. The needless in my feet, The bars in my mind. The shift feels like a
Senseless acts of violence Sadly, took away innocent lives Nothing but mass confusion Filled with corruption and strife Loved ones are grieving in sorrow Tears are falling down endlessly
I am terrified I shelter my heart with my hands I am terrified to hurt and to hurt another I am terrified I am numb I am... numb I am terrified so please, please don't abandon me darling
I am the human embodiment of fear and trepidation. My body is a reeking cesspool of panic so I lie awake in bed like an earthworm lay on cement and       rot  
When the clouds block out the sky I won't forget There's still a sun, a sky after rain I'm still A little flower, letting go Of what I think I know
Burn my thoughts, set them ablaze. You been running through them. You ran through them all day. Now that your gone I miss you bad Iv missed you ever since you went away I miss that smile on your face.
her foot never fully touched the ground,remaining half afloat in the air--stuck in the clouded mist of her anxious mind,she could not grasp the full weight of reality
I feel so low I can not comprehend I may smile now But I keep my sadness in   I feel like I'm drowning but I can breathe
I wanted your help but you turned away made it seem like attention's what I really craved I wanted to smile, to laugh, and to play but all you really added was a little more pain.  
It’s funny how much I’ve changed.  I’m 14 years old, sitting in my room, now surrounded by white. White sheets pinned to the walls, white carpet, white dresser. They were blue once, but that has been drained away.
I don't want to take your jobs, or have your money- I don't want your welfare, property, or clothes. I don't want to take advantage of your health care or social security-
She sits in her room everyday, Making plans and hoping.   She sits in her room as the seasons start to change... Spring to Summer, Summer to Fall, Fall to Winter...   On and on,
remember me as being happy. don't look to deep into my depression nowpretend that i was all smiles an joypretend that i am off on a journey, soaring through the clouds 
You sit alone and stare at the wall And darkness is all that you will find Messing around with narcotics Is sadly destroying your mind Just get yourself some help And take your life back
I cant do this anymore, Death is knocking upon my door. I cut deeper and deeper, I see the eyes of the real Grim Reaper.   I wield my blade like a weapon in defense,
Waves crash The thunders roll Thrashing upon my drowning soul   How long must I await Before it becomes too late Only he holds the power to save   But does he know of the pain
At 6 I never had a friend So when someone came up to me and said “Bare your soul and I'll give you the lint from my pocket,” I told her, “You can pay me by being a friend.”
He was like the moon, half always hidden What was it that split him- half darkness, half light? Crystal blue eyes held dark hidden secrets
I like sitting with the clear, little moon.We understand each other, and don't askAbout pasts, which for us both is a boon.I don't question her craters, or what
A sun, a moon pass above without no scent The sun has fallen for I have lost count For how I wonder if your well To wonder if a sheer streak still lingers  
Could tea be my new alcohol? I would let it fool me that I am warm  I would drink it as it burned down my throat I would let it take control    Because for awhile, a very short while
The things we realize we won’t ever obtainOh, it kind of hurts at timesSo far away from each other and I have much to sayyour voice is like flowers and it makes
Alone and staring at the wall Surrounding yourself with darkness Hanging around the wrong crowd Has sadly, robbed you of your happiness If you do not take those steps And move towards the right direction
She's the type of girl That everyone would desire Long hair, beautiful So many do admire But what you see on the outside Really doesn't matter Cause she's hurting inside Ready to die
America pledged a sugar coated liberty To sweeten such bitter remorse. Yet her heart burned by trepidity When she hid her wounds with words.   She sang a twisted song, Her lyrics laced with dread
A creation of our mind runs deep, so overwhelmingly deep at times Right at the moments you need it to be silent, the screams of sorrow and sadness echo throughout the corridors of the mind
There's something so poetic about watching everything crumble around you How can destruction be so artistic, so beautiful? Seeing everything you attempted to build just fall It's gone in the matter of minutes
a vicious thing the pain that always comes from never getting to know from no real conversation that went beyond me wondering
March 9, 2017:   We're continuing on this journey of self discovery and fullfilment We know we're lost, we know we'll probably never truly find ourselves We spent our teenage years trying to escape our depression
Having a mental ilness is like walking blindfolded in a forest You can never rest, you feel you can count on no one Because your brain tells you there is no one It says: "You don't have any friend but me"
We do our extensive research But yet, we stil may not come up with the right solution In a state of bewilderment With lots of frustration and confusion We feel incomplete
A friend asked me how to be a writer.I wanted to say,lock yourself in a room,scream until you have a poem and no voice.Open your veins and bleed until you know that your bones
Your garden is-dull. The ground is-dry. Blades of grass are scared sharp and pointed dry. The pebbles are not shining. The surrounding whiff is damp and dusty. Do you know Van Gogh's flowers?
happiness is notat the bottom of a bottleI don't know whyyou continue to search there   who told youto look hereand why did youbelieve them?  
A loved one may have passed on Never forget that she taught you how to be strong She is still there as a guide To help you carry on You were always her precious jewel She wanted you to give it your all
Bullying seems only to me to be The single thing that’s keeping me from you, but not you from me You laugh at me, you push and shove, I run home crying, to pray to the man above Ask him to help, in any way he could
There's an intangible outside force that consumes me. It's dark, fierce, and rugged. I become enveloped by it, wrapped in its jaws, as I aimlessly fall into its deep, boundless abyss.
You put me on my knees and I sob to God "Please" This poem isn't any different than the ones before It's about how I love you  Something I can never ignore It's about how you love him, too
Opportunity will pass you on by As your life sadly slips away You are just drowning in despair Filled with darkness everyday Frustration is mounting As flames continue to burn
Tired of imaginingTired of actingOh, how I wish that was meCat-fishingIs now existingMirror, mirrorWhat is my birth error?Is it my looks or personality?A shame that I desire plastic surgery
Last year I was at a funeral for my grandmother. My strong, polish grandmother Who grew up in Dachau concentration camp. We all wept, Me especially,
She may have passed on Never forget what she meant to you Forever was she your guiding light And she never let you out of her sight Very conscientious at what she did Because, she always wanted the best for you
Every day was a chore I never even wished for more To wish would be to care To care would be a dream to me I didn’t have the desire
I am alone. Or, am I really? What hides in the shadows? Is my fear truly gone?   I have flown through many ways, Speeding the only test I know. I move wrong, but I can't back-track,
The dark clouds roll in with the promise of rain. And I sit here staring out the window with tear stained cheeks, alone in an empty room where the shadows creep. I await the crying of the sky
There was a wood by my house you and I used to meet at. We would wait until the warmth of the glowing sun had gone So that you, my first love, Could wrap your strong, loving, embracing arms around my delicate, tiny body
She lies, And she does it so easily, She hides, And she does it so sneakily, She rips apart hearts,
It wasn’t hard for you to sweep me off of my feet, I took only one sip of you but already felt weak in the knees, My thoughts and emotions for “us” could not be tamed,
it was winter when we met   and summer when you left   maybe there’s some irony in that,   but i haven’t found it yet.   as soon as our eyes met,  
If I died, I’d cry But if I didn’t, then I’d never be alive I think I’m sad sometimes But other times I think that I’m just lying I like to sing out loud about death And feeling bad, and never being their yet
Your favorite medium was painting.Your favorite paint, my bloodBecause it came from the very heart beating for you.I always knew you had thorns,I just always assumed that they were for protecting me. 
    Today, it finally hit me; that moment of realization. I remember the days in my life that were so horrible and low. I remembered the moment, but not the feeling.
2016 was 366 days of dreaming, of learning, of reflecting, of growing myself into the person I long to be.   2016 was 366 days of laughter, of ideas,
June 21, 2015i remember when the phone rang at the ungodly hour of three in the morningyou started screamingunholy words dripping from your deranged brain filled with thoughts of hatred and sorrow
Broken to Beautiful This world is Broken Sadness Floats the air like smoke from a cigarette Depression
Slipping under the guards of yellow tape, that warns "stay away," burying myself into clouds and space. Locked into this haven, reserved only for my soul,  
A year full of rain was like my year of pain Inclement and full of disdain I felt so forsaken As i look back I see that all my hope had been taken
Blood drips from those little blue eyes. Yet no one can see them. They fade away with the fake smile and fake laugh.  Clock is ticking and words repeating. Worthlessness, brokenness, sadness, loneliness.  
I can see it. I can see the light located at the end of the tunnel I run faster and faster towards it Praying with each step I'll be one step closer, closer  to being free.   Free from the bullies
WHY
Why do men look at love as being a contagious diease  instead of a feeling thats here to fulfill your needs its mind bottiling to know that some men look at love as something that will never grow As i smoke
Love the one you’re with For you don’t know if today Will be the closing Of what you once secured The belief that love stays true
Measuring your ability to fail Failing to conquer your fears Fears that consume you You are breathless, speechless, lifeless   Lifeless for a lifetime
This is for the optimistic girl  that sings . This is for the late night talks and the joy she  brings . This for the guy  that hides every ounce of pain behind his smile and laughter.This is for the loved ones who passed away way after , the pain
Since birth, I've had her love. Although I'm one of many, I've had her love. She carries the heart of an Angel with a bit of spice. She carries the foundation of the family. Her prescence gives me joy and security.
Slow and steady Constantly worried Asking what am I going to do? You're gone for a whole another year How can I move forward without you? Stuck in a standstill Not sure where to go Or even what to do
Up's and down's are all I have, But flatline is where I want to be. No feeling, no pain in my life; No happy or sad just nothing. I want this low to be gone, Even if I lose the highs.
Can you hear me now, As I call through the cloud The memories of the year that has past? The memories of joy The memories of tears The memories of death The memories of life  
It started with her. The chemotherapy was abortive and it didn’t repair the damage to her lungs. It seemed absurd to waste time analyzing, every word I came across,
 Cancer.    You have probably heard it everywhere. The news, the papers, your neighbours mouth or even in your head. It is associated with fighting. It is not simply a fight. It is a battle.
Up on the hill in Deer Island Park, a sicamore is felled.    no one attends it's funeral, or wears a black veil in it's honour.  a man used to sleep under that tree, a woman took her children there for picnics. 
if i could tell you one thing i would tell you that i was sorry really sorry, aching chest sorry and i would tell you to love yourself
Heartbreak is the heartbeat moments Smiles fading into frowns When happy turns to sad In remembrance of a memory The longing to return
my consciousness sputters like a dying engine the pulsations of my brain slowing, shaking (muscles too slug-like to function)   beat, rest, beat, rest
x
she has a universe engraved on her wrist and stars in her eyes with her dreams plastered across her figure she is an infinite expanse a world unexplored
It's taken me a while to sit down at this keyboard So many sunrises so many nights My best friend on fire in a little glass tube I inhale the fumes let the feelings go
Windows are closing Because, you have allowed opportunity to slip away Time will sadly pass on There is absolutely no one for you to blame You are living in a state of poverty And drowning deeply in sorrow
theres a man in my head he made his own bed he puts fear in my brain and ice in my veins he pulls me from the people i love most and pushes me towards ones i hate most
In the cold, dead of winter night, through the highest maple branches, on the wind whistling through the air, rides a song full of tears.   Cries of the innocent, the guilties fears,
there is no humanity behind these random acts, that took away your sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, mother and fathers
Once more am I aloneIntoxicated warmth glowing in the pits of my bellyPut me to sleep oh PoseidonTake your waters back from these eyesOh Dionysus help me one more timeLet Hermes, rock me to a lullaby
iam
I am a girl of six Playing with bones and stones and sticks Wondering if words will ever stick Not knowing that in a decade, I’ll be lonely and sick   I am a girl of ten
I don't believe you when you tell me you love me You say we embraced our hopes and fears,The only thing I remember was the rain pourYou were stuck here
He
When he came into my life Everything changed like never before I became someone I despised I dressed differently I stopped talking to the people around me I even strayed away from my classes
 My mind can't keep calm, all the screaming and beating me, making my mind numb...dumb...less alive. Feeling a mixture of self loathe and happiness in my mind. Taking control of my common sense and free will.
The fight is over. I’m sinking like a stone before the tide. The Heroes have gone The fight is over But still the beckoned rhythms of your voice call my name.
I just needed a friend  Dark and dim in the closet No room to breathe I was suffocating No one was able to see  
A shitty run down turqousie chevy, with a dented silver door on the left hand side, crawling from the passengers side to yours, sitting in the lap of a past lover,
The pain started in his head, bouncing between his ears like a bullet richocheting through a tunnel. Soon enough the pain slithered down his throat and into his lungs, clinging and growing like a fungus.
I’m in a bad place No matter how far I run I cannot escape it And I cannot live without it I’m stuck within my head
No matter how alive My mind is Emotionally, I am numb I am nothing I stare blankly as my whole world Just falls apart And I fall apart with it Please, someone Hold me together  
A car in the pouring rain It goes under a bridge Quiet Peaceful It comes out from under And everything hits harder again You were my bridge  
What do I do? What do I say? Feelings They are sharp Poison-tipped arrows The bow string is pulled tight Soon it will release They will harm Anything they touch
I am so torn My body Being pulled in two directions By my mind And heart Which do I choose? My choice doesn’t matter Both sides will keep pulling anyway Equal in their force
Sadness S-A-D-N-E-S-S Such a mundane word For an all-consuming emotion One that tears up your heart Your soul Your mind And, at times, your forearms To be fair,
The most powerful tears Are those that slip out Though the tiniest cracks In one’s happy facade And slide over one’s soul Burning Acidic Poisonous They leave scars
You
You You make me feel things After feeling so numb For so long Is it any wonder that I Don’t want to give you up?  
He feels the pain,He sees the blood,He hides the scabs and scars;He wants no pity,He is fine,He is fine,The words just repeat in the back of his mind.He doesn't want your sympathy,Just leave him alone,If you can't do that then watch him slowly;He
Ruthlessly pushing through the mob In want of space to breathe. Helplessly flailing in the openness In search of someone to grasp.   Memory of all that was gained And lost.
I know I can’t compete with the stars. What there is to see in the stars is endless.  I see the constellations and am reminded of a structure I can’t maintain. 
Did you tell them you were ok Did you laugh it off and shake your head because  nobody wants to look weak. Did you walk calmly out the door but run
Disappointment after disappointment. Don't put your trust or hopes in any person, don't place your self-constructed expectations on anyone, Or else disappointment, sadness, and hopelessness is all you will feel.
 They come so often It is not a surprise anymore For these visitors are Now residents In my eyes I barely notice them
For me it was gold But for them its dirt The way they treat The way they speak But whatever it is I doesnt really fit They came along That wasnt too long Both singing a song
War
I love you. My gosh do I love you.   I dream about you. We lay on the beach, we eat in fancy restaurants and I have even visited you overseas.   I've seen you get shot. 
On the drive home, I noticed all the children racing around playgrounds, people walking their dogs, everyone being able to go about their lives while mine had been completely put on pause.
I'm the lifeless kid, The one sitting in the corner, One wrist stained red, One hand controlling the knife. But no one cares to ask, They all sit there to laugh. Where's the fun in that?
I started it again yesterday, slicing open my skin with a broken razor blade. I hid the broken peice of sharpened metal in my makeup compact, and I cried all day. 
How did this come to be? Like the bird that forgets to fly, I am grounded, without purpose. I shout below, why? To know again,
She went at 53, And took a part of me She probably didn’t know I’d come But, too bad, life played her like a drum.  
You didn't know that when you met me,I was sad.You didn't know when you met me that I didn't know how sad I actually was.You didn't know that when you
Things were fine in the beginning. We sangWe danced, we laughed we played. You told me you only had eyes for me.I thought it to be true. Then you told me That we were not meant to be. And I cried.  All alone with my thoughts.
You cannot choose stuck in between black and white a winter day a long piece of charcoal old movies dusty shirts pencil lead staples in a stapler elephants
Happiness’ laughter echoes throughout the school halls. Wearing calming colors of the rainbow; Spreading joy to everyone in need.   Bravery shows its strength on the field.
My soul cries, Enough to drown me. Leaving me to try and try To save myself. But also hoping That someone else will rescue me.
This thing, is breaking me apart, But it keeps me breathing, Even though my heart is bleeding, It over comes me from the inside out,   Strands of pink, faded dull,
My lips are blue, The color of skies and sadness. But nothing can rid me of this hue, Or save me from the madness.   My hands are numb,
Why must I get upTo face the dayAnd add to the troublesTrying to fade away In this life I have built,What is there for meI've nothing to cherishBut pain and agony
our iron hearts just weigh us down our iron ears block out the sound
You want to go home to the shadows. Watch as your fame hangs in the gallows.  
SilenceAll there ever wasAll there ever isI hope it won't always beSilenceBetween usAgainst usFor usIt's tortureDaysMonthsYears of silence at a timeI can't stand it anymore. 
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,
The foreigner makes his way as the snow falls.   His feet, unaccustomed, are awkward and crude, and leave a crooked muddied trail in a vast and white field.
Dip them in a sauce   They'll be there when you are down    Potato chips rule. 
When it's dark deep inside, there's no point to hide since he brightens me up like the sun in a gloomy time.
There are days when, unbidden and unsought, memories surrounding you enter my thoughts.
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.
Through the silence I hear the screams A picture of a perfect family lying in a broken frame A lifetime of happiness A lifetime of lies "If possible I never would have married him"
Her big brown eyes stare up at me with gladness, her cuddles and kisses takeaway my sadness. Her favorite thing in life is her toy. Its amazing how furbabies give us such joy.
Lost in the feeling of freedom and joy, Not believing I could loose it all, But who would be so ignorant to risk and choose to fall, I'm silent while I watch them brawl,  Over stupid things like hats or who's tall,
I think maybe I am in love With The Smiths. I think maybe that’s a bit of a Problem.   You see, I think too much.
Every day the sun shines brighter. Every day the birds sing louder. But to me, every day is dark and mute because every day, I have to live without you.
I think about it quite often, actually, how some people can't even afford a coffin, to bury their loved ones in.
The bark booms, the trees sway. His head zooms, he tries to go away. He can't move, but he can't stay. He's constantly trapped inside his brain.
She has so many secrets Beneath those sea blue eyes So much she's never spoken So many hidden lies She wants to show her real self But in fact she's too afraid She thinks if she takes off the mask
freckles are the snowflakes of summer, the reason i like this season best, the reason i love you most. sunny days and a sprinkler
i try to forget you. i try to remember you. but i cannot. i have written you letters, i have sung you songs, i have penned a thousand poems,
drunk or sober it was always you there is a lonely hum in my brain where your name used to be i will drown myself to silence in it if i do not get some peace and quiet soon
one hit a bottle of jack i cannot breathe but my bones are laughing. my lungs struggle to keep up with my racing thoughts.
Where are you now? You promised to always be by my side. You promised to never leave You said this day will never come But yet, you had to leave Why? Why are you gone? What did I do wrong?
Can they see the sin embedded in the depths of my skin? Are they able to hear my repentance crying out like a firstborn without stretched wanting hands?
When the world is in its softest sleep, we are awake.   We are roaring down the highway past city lights and nostalgic meadows. We roll down the windows, and a heavy petrichor fills the bitter cold air.
When the sun shines  I want to drink wine like a fish climbs a current insurgent, purgent Flowing unknowingly Growing unshowedly. The pines rise and fall to the grime time haphazardly
I miss the cloudy days When the sky was nice and grey, A sad smile upon my face. What happened to the rain?   The sky has been to bright, With the warm sunshine Glowing upon the smiling faces
As the ocean began to swallow me I remembered Our first kiss The way my parents were proud How much I loved the outdoors My first trip to my dream state The first real friend I ever had
I see Snow stick to the hard, brittle grass Twinkling lights reflect off car windows Little boys and girls playing with their toys Cookies stacked on a table set for many people
I am water,/Flowing and ebbing and dipping,/Murmuring a silent scream,/My emotions are like a waterfall/rushing, never stable./ I am the earth/Crumbling, shaking, tremoring,/Cold, warm/without voice, without choice,/Alone, and overrun./ I am fire.
A friendship so beautiful, The world's eyes are forever searching, But fail to find, rendered sightless by greed. The hatred tries to bleed into, incompetent.   A home broken like an ocean floor of glass,
I still see the same faces everyday, but something has changed in yours.     Maybe I'm watching too closely for some sign of you missing me.    
 it’s paper mache and rhymelaughing with people with no sense of timeart is the lives of you and methe people that color history  
Kneeling against these creaky doors,Lazily carving incisions,To take back my skin from the pain,Then I decided to spew out,A chalice of apparent relief,And fall into the puddle,Letting the tears benumb the stench,My insides clenched onto the despa
Sad isn’t just a word you know?It’s an acronym for sadness, anxiety and depression.I describe it as a little pesticide, that can crawl into my mind Lay it eggs in other parts of the bodyI won’t eat, deprived from sleepFeel the need to love or have
With heavy feet, I treadForcing myself to my bedI lay on my backBreath in and outAttempting not to focus on what I lack
I am just a traveler in want of a little rest I had been blending through a city of the oppressed Dimming me down to the filthy ground Screaming at me, they surround
Parent or provider? Do you wake up to a happy home? Do you enjoy "family time" Do you even get famly ime? Misunderstood? yelled at?
“Poet, breathe now.” Adam Gottlieb’s words soon stuck in my head. “Louder Than a Bomb” sketched in my notebook. Poetry. Enthusiasm from those slammers on stage.
Sadness as my lover Loneliness as ink, as tears Paper being the bed I rest my emotion Side by side with sadness I'm even happy around it Cause sadness has been loyal Bringing out hidden powers
Sadness does not happen quickly it waits it lurks in the dark it's hiding in the shadows of your childhood park   Sadness is not in the present but in your memories waiting to pounce
Now the only question I had to ask myself was , what was IT? What was I looking for?.
In the same way the moon lights up the sky when the sun is busy or how the grass sways when the wind breaks, ugliness, not beauty, creates poetry.
He used to walk under nothing but a raincloud, Until she came, Held his hand,  And showed him the sun.
Liar is what I've become, To spare the feelings of everyone. I won't say a word, And you won't notice. I'll keep quiet and smile, And all my lies are worthwhile. I'm sick of turning to you for help,
The shadow of you lingersAround me.It mimics the feel of Your touch,Your warmth,Your lips. I teases me with memories that are better as memories. 
What sweet relief Found only under The sweet ministrations Of razor’s edge, Noose’s end and Pill bottle bottom.
The numbness is growing, Or is it sadness instead, That will plague me until death. I feel so alone in this world Where my darkness descends. I feel forgotten  by my memories
I should be sleeping But I miss my bed And someone holding my hand Wiping away the tears as I try to fall asleep But instead I'm alone Lying awake in a home that's not mine
black cat took me abat  black cat you represent so many things  black cat the witch's  bae  oh black cat  so lucky in japan and united kingdom  but bad luck's boo  here in the good old of USA
Crying. I was up crying for you all night. I don't know you. I've never seen your face, Yet I was crying, crying, crying.   I wanted you there. I wanted you to hold me.
Of course, it was a date. I was lying back on the chair, my nervous heart pumping, While she sat on the other side of the table Looking beautiful as ever.
Some dreams are worse than others, but they're all the same, a passage to a better life, it's difficult to explain, whether by knife or by rope, either way, i couldn't cope,
He was getting ready to go to work that hot morning when she called him. He hadn’t expected to hear from her and now that her name was splashed across the screen of his ringing phone, he didn’t know what to think. He was both excited and scared.
Her eyes remain glued to her scruffy shoes, As she roams aimlessly around the streets of uptown Nairobi. She wants to keep her eyes veered away from the world, So nobody can see just how wet they are.
You were a pen Long, slender, and sleek A sharp tip aching to cut through ink and paper   I was an inkwell Dark, mysterious, and opaque
Momma wrote Years ago a sunlit chapel First grade was ending I was leaving No recollection of the words Only Momma choked on them Sad Tears   Momma never cries
Barren stems more than emptiness -within the confines of lost and broken,resilient as beauty is -Hope that awakens in white flowersto kiss you dreams that you areso welcome to take. 
For all my favorite Roses Born into tragedy;   she is celebrated, adored, nurtured, envied, blessed -   she is beaten, sacrificed, scrutinized, enslaved, damned - 
There are a few things you should know, About me and my life, And what I've learned to not show. You don't know what I feel, I keep it well hidden, But maybe I shouldn't,
At thirteen I lost my reason to live, my sister, Virginia, became a stillborn My heart was torn in not two, but a hundred pieces A demon was created inside of my head I was told from others she deserved to die
Maybe it was my realization that placement of words and spaces could literally shake a nation, Wake a generation, stir a congregation, or transform no way into more ways.   
I feel like I died a million deaths How can you not feel the same? I would say my tears are just allergies but really my heart cannot be tamed   I feel  useless seeing you with your other
Do you make wishes at 11:11Do you plan from 11:09 When your hope bubbles over andAll of your troubles and desires File into a line where the biggest dream races practicality for a spot in the frontAnd converts to words soon to be evaporated into a
A subtle drop falls Falling from his face Be it tears, or blood, it falls
A flow from within. Deep within the soul it flows, Pouring from her eyes.
I don't know how or where it happened. I just knew it was the beginning to an end. The beginning was full of many unknown surprises.
This day in age, it always seems The world is bursting at its seams. Brothers dying, Mothers crying, The most bloodshed that heaven's seen. Rapes and bombings everyday..
She puts on a mask it's smiling today  She puts on long sleeves to cover the pain She hurries to class invisible to all          Her smile is fake to hide the truth She bites her lip to hold back tears
There were dolphins on the ceiling, their grey bodies in greenish waters, dancing through shadows cast by artificial moonlight  
  I don't know what to do anymore I don't know who to talk to anymore I don't know how to love anymore I don't know how to live anymore....because you're gone.  
You always say you want the truth... So I'll provide it But it won't be easy to understand Because I don't understand it myself. Sometimes I hate you. I just really really really hate you.
Way back Way way back In the darkest of times In the dark In the night Of my mind In the screams In the terror I found a pen And paper Wrote down my feelings About
Vodka I know you drank blankets the room A washer so rusted the orange seeps through these weary cracks of cement floors Smile covered face where I peppered you with kisses you can't feel
Fake smiles, fale people, All that surrounds me. Walking past the windows Gives us a glimpse of what we are missing.   The people outside look joyous. Free to leave! Free to live!
She came into class and sat next to mewith sad eyesshe was trying to hideso the whole world couldn't seethe tears running down her face.It wasn't my placeto ask her what was wrong or if she was okay
It’s difficult, to say the least,that with dying embers follows,a shift to a sobering cease,leaving thy blushing touches hollowed.
You may be wondering How your pain goes unnoticed. Feeling like you're screaming, And nobody is even looking in your direction. How is it possible That nobody hears?  
Oh my weary loving king, rest your mind, and see what dreams the night will bring. Put your worried mind at ease, and know our love, no boundaries sees.
It started as a gentle breeze,a whisper in my ear:the weeping of a weeping willow,weeping out of fear. 'Why do you weep, weeping willow?There is no reason to cry.'
Happiness is a newborn child Written in the softest pastels  Ever stitched by crippled hands. You try your hardest to hold it, Not to upset it, Simply obey and soothe it.
My despondency wraps it's arms around me, Motherly embrace, I cannot walk away.. My pathos leading me to beautiful mourning, Waves of melancholy spreading all over my body.. I cannot walk away.
Consider the fog that settles beneath me The underneaths of the narrow bridges They trap the mist around my skin The breeze cools me as it feathers throughout the air  
Lay with me and drift, drift away, high into a cloud. Just laying here with a soft song coming out a old stereo. Saying sweet nothing under the influence only makes me smile.
We never had a real homeBut one day master came along and took us inIt wasn't a kind homeWe were beatenYelled atAnd made to fightWe had to obey every single commandWithout flaw
He whispers to the moon, Have you really seen it all? The wars and the terror and the art Seen the righteous killed and the sadists born
Pain is surreal. The awareness of what I’ve become is shocking, painful. As I glance around, bodies twist and keel Over my shoulder, I see a brother in arms fall, eyes glassy, yet full. Of love
A mountain to climb, an emotional high A divot in our path, and suddenly we crash Into the ocean, drowning in waves I lie in bed, pleading for you to stay A sky to navigate The Great Unknown
Heavy once again Sorrow permanently Permeating Penetrating Over and over The insecurities  Stab like darts Tears well up  Out of nowhere Leaking and spilling
Pouring down In unrelenting sheets Washing all In its path Battle-worn soldiers Pellets of water That are cold to the touch Leaving numb traces And mingling With salty tears
Please go away You've had your chance I don't want you to stay I'm in a hazy trance I know how I am To be honest I can be kind I can be sweet I can be the greatest friend
Looking into his eyes, cold, empty full of lies. Who was this man standing before me in this disguise? I've seen that look one too many times. I wish I never was a disappointment. But this man gave up on me a long time ago.
Waking up the clock reads half past noon. Looking outside I feel a pang of gloom. I think of the day we got yelled at for not hearing our parents call us more than just a few times. We didn't know. We were too busy playing in the snow.
There’s a silence in her voice, and there’s a storm within her eyes, She’s been loved and she’s been lost amongst the bruising of her heart.
Have you ever felt the rain? The pitter-patter, like my fingers on the table we ate lunch at every day during school The pitter-patter, harder now, like the waves of shutting lockers in the halls we once laughed in
There is this deep, evasive emptinessthat never ceases to lack control.That conquers and escapes,that stirs quiet chaos in my soul.
What happens after I am happy, I'm energetic and alright. I'll be happy for a while, Not tiered at all, Keeping myself up, With these ideas of joy and love. This is my state of mania perhaps,
The blood rushed through him As she spoke of what had happened to her He loved her so Composing a plan of what to do  
I am from fond memories made with him from his smile that never leaves his face I am from his tears that form every night for they cloud his eyes from the thought of me  
I try so hard but I just can't sleep My soul won't rest so instead I just weep I feel like I'm being crushed, like gravity is too strong The only thing I dont feel is that I belong
Stability wasn't a thing I would have known But it got better as I had grown I thought it was the reason that I cried But it's really because of my sadness inside What am I supposed to do
The Fallen Angel is Dying-- The pain comes in strides Chained down to Earth, left alone; tortured by her other side Her wings--they droop to shame, as sound stops and begins
 I don't mean to be blunt~like forced traumaor display myself up for you~dioramafor you to get this how I feelthere is no appealwaking up like a wind-upbecause everyday I wind-ipin these same situationspessimistic contemplationsevery day and the d
You and I were like fire and gasoline, each time we saw each other, you inflamed me my mind, my soul, my heart was alive but then the depression hit me and I was just trying to survive.
Why is it That we must pay For others mistakes? Why does this world hurt us, Make us distrustful? What happened to the days When a person could walk down the street,
A girl, Just a girl Lives with a broken: Smile, Heart, Life. Waiting for a chance, Just a chance To prove who she really is. Tired of tears on her pilliows,
Time pasts and people stay still. You can’t change someone, if their heart is made of steel. That is the truth, And I know it hurts, But don’t push yourself because it never works. 
Black Men, Black Men Why do they bring you so much harm? With all the brutal beatings and unlawful misconduct while you are unarmed? Do they not care that you have great potential for life?
The days after you left were like sunken hells in my bedroom. I painted the walls rich reds and blacks using nothing but my feelings.
Take your space and make it worth it see my face and know you hurt it. I know you never want to see me cry, but I just can't ever tell you goodbye. I came to love you as if it were necessity, and you bring out what is best in me.
Never could I turn to one who knows me as you do I thought that I could never be myself until I met you. Endless, restless nights spent awake just holding it in, Yet you were right there, as though you were kin.
My life is quite strange, I honestly don’t know why, I’m sad nowadays,   It’s not like I’m hit, They don’t starve me or hurt me, It’s me who hurts me,   I don’t see my worth,
Death is the Greatest Truth   Do tell me why you left? Each night I stare up at the ceiling and I’m tempted to scream your name, After all, you did this to me, didn’t you?
When you ask me, "Are you okay?" I want to say no, I want to say that I'm breaking inside, That I'm a shattered piece of this human being I used to be,
One death for the nobody's pride One death for the times we were sadOne death gotta stay alive.. .I will surviveOne death for the city streets One death for the hip hop beats One death oh I do believe 
I wish there was some beautiful poetic way of explaining how i feel. I wish i could paint my words into a picture. But i cannot. Because i do not know how to make the feeling of absolute worthlessness,
  Their words a bullet their mouth a gun I am a victim like many people under the sun
Ever since I was a child the world looked so bright It seemed like all the darkness was pushed away by light But my young mind couldn't comprehend all the truth After all I was in the starting of my youth
This a story of life and loveOf reaching for those that have gone aboveOf trying to keep away your madnessThis is the Sonnet of Sadness- - - - -You waited for love with abated breath,
Years have passed, time has flown; My heart has wandered on its own Endlessly I sat alone, Waiting for the day that change would come. Here I sit, upon my throne Built inside my failure zone;
  You don't comprehend.  ∴  My thoughts, my dreams
You're nothing, but a low life, not even wondering where all the bad went, but she is.   She's nothing, but a low life, loved with all her heart, and still failed to be faithful.  
Held on like a child clinging to the string that dangles from the bottom of a ballon.   You huffed and puffed, like the Big Bad Wolf, trying to blow away my only happiness.
Why does there have to be sadness in the world? I guess sadness builds character in people It makes them stronger Through hardships, comes good things
the culdesac is quieting. the sun is readying for bed, and the streetlights are soon to come on. most have been called in for dinner, yet a few stragglers still remain, in denial of both the ending day,
You started out as a canvas That my thoughts and dreams flowed freely through A million dances The meaning behind the view I fell in love quite quickly I wrote for fun My pen lies thickly
A girl walks up to the gates of a new school, her yellow dress sways in the breeze as her parents call farewell. The school stands looming above her Laughter of other children surround her
You don't need my confession To know that I'm struggling with depression it follows me everywhere I go and I wish it wouldn't show I can bury my face in other things
you woke up from a dream that felt too untrue because it was a feeling that was too  farnew for you you hopped out of your cherry red bed and out to do things you had to attend to
How do I fill this void I have tried distractions and diversions But I am still a very sad person. I try not to lose my writing passion
Wailing heard through an amplified tshauv queej, And constant beat of the drums. Through the quick bangs, Arrives the light rum. For all men to drink, To feel drunk to the brink.
You were taken from your own home To get us through this holiday. I know that must be bothersome, But accept you are here to stay.   Suffocated in lights of white, And weighted down with memories.
To be honest, everyone loves me Just no one seems to say thanks! At all. I find it odd that my similar Counterpart, the bed Gets the entire households praise For I do what he does and more!
To be honest, everyone loves me Just no one seems to say thanks! At all. I find it odd that my similar Counterpart, the bed Gets the entire households praise For I do what he does and more!
She's drowning in a sea of shadows   The world fades away   The only thing in her tear streaked eyes   Is his dying face
On the verge you are. to show yourself even though I fight through my willingness
You
You creep into my mind And it's like I can't be sane without you. You kept me high all the time. Your touch was so intoxicating. All I want is to have you in my arms again And hear your voice next to my ear.
The only thing, that I need in this world, is me.   My mind, my thoughts, my feelings, my knowledge.    Without it, I am not alive. I couldn't reminisce about happy days,
All I need is my sanity With my sanity, I have my peace And with my peace, I have my mind And with my mind, I can survive Because I, I waver sometimes.  
Somebody once said No Man Is An Island, But I'm on this Island immersed in desolation without you,
baby, i drank a little something but i still can't get you out of my mind i drank a little something, just a little bit of wine. i drank a little something,  but i still can't find the right frame of mind.
Can I escape the ubiquitous, omnipotent lull of remiss negligence Can I prove to myself that I should live on The rope tightens ever so   I

To you, mom, I think depression is not understanding. It’s not hearing me when I cry silently at dinner, but instead, reprimanding. Me? It’s not my fault, see, I hold back my breaths, I keep it in
I look across the silent room Every chair is overturned My stuff is strewn around the floor And everything is still   The phone sits off its hook
10 Things I Wish I Could've Told You... but never did.  
Maybe you haven't come to realize that I am worthy of your presence. I guess you haven't got the message. Busy creating your best essence. I might cross you off my check list; Set sail and settle in.
I remain a silhouette A shadow behind an unrequited love The dweller of the mysterious apartment,Several floors above the cheaters and false loversThis is how they treat the poet
I reminisce of weightlessness:  peering down into 10, 20 feet of air. My delicate days,  I recall, as a haze  full of branches: a careful cloud  of offshoots  that, long as I could, 
Nature’s vast wasteland surrounds her nest, Causing her soul to become anxious for delight, She must try to survive while being oppressed.   Her internal pain is never at rest,
As I was fighting for you, I realized I was fighting to be lied too, Fighting to be denied to put my heart inside you, Fighting to be cheated and be lied too,
    Can't you hear me, give me achance, hear my screaming, I'm begging you now. When did this happen? It happened so fast, one night you're winning, the next one you're smashed.
In the already messed up nature of the world, she couldn’t find a Drop Of  life.There was nothing in the pond, Nor on the shelf in her closet. Nothing.She stood alone in silence. Isolated. She never sat, because she had too much to do. Too much to
No hopefulness within, The silver and the skin, It kisses like fire, My veins become drier, Relief, kiss my forehead, A break from the torment.
If those walls could talk,  I know what they'd say; It'd be no comfort to families, Whose lights've gone away. For when sky fades to black, And blues turn to grays, And gun's life-taking crack,
Watching the movie Inside Out, I see Sadness So blue, meek, unable to walk Who would guess she's the hero? This tiny emotion with the power to turn memories into the shades of sky
All I need... All I need isn't what you need. All I need is what you have. All I need is to be someone. All I need is who you are: You are funny, You are beautiful, You are smart,
Unnerved, I sit perplexed at who I am wondering who this girl is in the mirror Who can I be in this world Who can I lift, if i can't lift myself out of this funk, this depression.
I found myself relapsing last night. Again. Sadness came about and held my throat with both hands, and when I stopped sputtering and gasping for sweet air, self-hatred was registered in my heart
We've been best friends since the beginning,But now this is the endI'm saying goodbye to living.
Toto, we are not in Kansas anymore, We are neck deep in denialshouting from our lungs,We are starving head cases.We are two am phone calls to our mothersaying, Mom, I messed up.
It's labored breathing and breaking heartsIt's not know where tostart with goodbyesIt's teardrops and achy chestsIt's losing the only reasonyou had left.It's sick daysand sick leaves
Hide the scars draw a heart on your armtake a pictureadd a filterkiss her scars "stay strong, love"  
How are you my dear? They always ask, don’t they? Day after day the strangers inquire, Though not a single one aspires To actually shun
We’ve been going at it for so long Why do we keep doing this? It starting to hurt to see you I’m feeling unwanted Why do you do this?
Every time I press sendI feel relievedThat someone is thereWilling to talk toMe.  
The girl of my dreams, had I not known she existed; She hadn't until I met her. I didn't expect her to appear in my place however her charm persisted She incurred my attention, not one to defer.  
  If you see me drown alone See me standing on my own In a world of complications I have intricately sown   If you hear me in the night Shedding tears over a loss
Caught in regrets Pain, depressed A Chaos, a mess The sheer emptiness The hurt and distress It all makes the clicks Enhance the sensation Of deep nothingness   A glimpse of apathy,
Red they say stands for love or admiration Oh darling, my heart must have been bright red the day I saw you Yellow they say stands for optimism and cheer
I look and see them laughing and smiling,And I look at myself and see absolutely nothing.  
 It takes time to understand what's important The needs are from what takes us apart. A thought not provoked alone but together A collective of sorts.  
I've been robbed. Robbed of all sources of light- Robbed of the light of feelings of worthiness robbed of the lights of dance  and laughter robbed of the drive to seek out more lights-  
How many times Have you stared at the dark ceiling, Tears streaming down your cheecks, And willed yourself to sleep?   How many times Have you fooled a friend With a smile Or laugh?
You are a storm. Yet you are nothing.   And life is an ocean, Vast and undiscovered.   It's choppy and crule. Its swells are too much.   Sadness hits in great waves
rape victims they are not crazy abuse victims they are not crazy bullying victims  they are not crazy  drug addicts and alcoholics they are not crazy  people with depression and anxiety 
One single word that will be my destroyer Everything around me, everyone around me is happy I don’t understand how they can be so filled with joy
In life, all we want is happiness. We want it to fall into our hands as easily as sand seeps out between our fingers. Yet, it seems as if we only listen to those who don’t know what will bring us happiness.
Sorrow drop above the sky today Listen, the whisper cries as they fall by your ears Splash! There goes another perfect shapeless teardrop,
You threw me away but did I waste away?  like your body as it grows older and older  I lived, I ran, I soared You threw me away  but did I waste away?  I cried, but never mourned 
Walking in to my class it seems like a nice day until my teacher decides she has something to say. She pulls me aside and slowly I die. No matter how hard I try to be good,
The silent air tonight says more Than anything I've said before. It’s filled with the words I cannot speak. Are you too deaf? Is my voice too weak?
My grievances await atonement, but it never arrives I continue to battle the monsters inside. These macabre beasts from the infernal grave Lash out and unleash unbridled rage.
The light of yesterday fell under the horizon, I look for you among the ruins. Where did you go? Where did you go?   I don't think I can do this without, But I guess I'll have to try,
I did not ask for struggle, I did not begin it. But when it is presented, I intend to win it. No matter the uphill battle, No matter the stricken tears. At the end of every struggle,
Maybe she likes sports Maybe he likes ballet  Maybe she's a he Maybe he's a she Maybe she likes girls Maybe he likes boys  We must be treated equal We are humans, not cookie cutter toys  
Once upon a time, In a kingdom far away. There was a mistreated maiden And to her dismay they teased bout her shoes and her hair everyday. I'll let you in on a secret So tell everyone else
I'm the ugly sweater, I'm just there so you may laugh I'm the ugly sweater, I'm here on your behalf I'm the ugly sweater, I've always been the same I'm still the ugly sweater,
Why do I learn? To someday be wrong Why do I sing? Just words and no song Why do I cry? I haven't lived long Why do I struggle? With no visible end Why do I smile?
Anger. Hatred. Sadness. Each day,  Driving past your house, I'd always wonder, Did you ever think about me? Did you ever miss me? 'Course not 'cause you was never there
I've got real boy problems and I can't stand it Try to keep everyone so I demand it No one ever stays so I stay angry The best way to attract the same thing   Those who turn up as new are the old faces
I feel torment on it’s rise Right before it locks it’s gazelle in a cage I hear it next to my ear telling me lies It confronts me putting me up in a rage Telling me I’m not worth the tears coming from their eyes
Ears red, heart black, life blue It's like I see myself different, because it's my view Sadness carries you through the skies I can't find my door out it's like I have these unwanted ties
Some say that pain is something that feels forever but is only there well never and depression we decide we will make our obsession
I have sent you a dove, It carries to you a note, Telling you of my love.   I want to tell you of above, The skies giving our planet a coat.
I'm not gonna lie it burns for me to say this faster than our love apparently you thought we should quit said you couldn't love me before you love yourself
sun
I know I said I thought you were the moon but right now you are shining as the sun I cannot sleep because you are there My eyes closed you still burn through The lids and layers of my skin crawling fears
He arrives at his living hell,School.Tortured and taunted by bullies,Like buzzards skipping and flapping around.One bully, the Dark One’s true name.The rotten bastard and his posse,
You are on my back, stillPulling ever tighter on this necklace (This necklace you gave to me) Pulling ever tighter on this necklacePulling tighter until I bleed (I am used to the blood)
Do you think about me the way I think about you? I often wonder wat you are up to Does your heart ache when you remember my face? Without you I can no longer find my happy place
In my head I reside Where there is one thing to hide My true feelings and my fears Memories that bring only tears In my head there are shadows where the evil lives A place where there is no remorse to give
 OH My Lord my Lord don’t cry My brothers and sisters do not know any better My Lord of Lords sheds tears, cascading down unto earth.   My Lord, your tears are like the oil that fills my cup of truth
Awake...Another dream to bring me back to this cold, lonely existence Alone...Left to suffer in silence as no one will hear my cries Awake on such a night as this to ponder why...
He calls me an "old soul" 
Have you ever lied to a lover? Just to convince yourself That you would never look at another Especially one who may look a little like yourself Have you ever cried about a lover?
If tears are comparable to the sky raining And supposedly the rainbow comes after the storm What happens with a sadness not waning?  Does such beauty still appear to a heart so torn?  
He stole my heart But they stole him Off to war, he fought And our future looked dim Before he left he pulled me in He whispered “I love you” And my pain begin I could barely mumble, “I love you too”
You're sitting there across the room yet it feels like.. your a hundred miles away… I gaze at you and the way your eyes shine your smile shines brightly and kind  
What point is there in life when it's full of sadness and pain? Can people truly be happy and forget the pain that others seem to be in?
IncomparableMysticalMagical It is so UnattainableEnlightening DeluxeIn every way Keeping the actions of the brokenAt bayIt is like walking into an open field 
Laughter fills the room but a place empty No flowers were to bloom Just a late night memory   They come and they go

Okay, that's enough of that I think that my mind has finally had enough of you I'm so very done with your shit (Pardon my language) In truth, I'm not even sure if It's your shit I'm done with
Hello my heart     You cry often Why do you feel sad?
You're crying again... tears comin' down your face You're sobbing, almost in tears, all in tears, depressing, or anger hitting your fists against the wall tellin' yourself it won't happen again,
I have been looking and searching for someone Life just seems like it doesnt want to show me that special someone I ask but i get no reply I help but get no thank you I ask myself is it you?
  You were once so beautiful, We were once so close But this is not who i once loved And is instead a tortured ghost Just a shell that's been cracked And on the verge of perish
When I use words to explain my depression, I use those of others. I claim to be a writer and yet I become so certain that what I have is too little.
I want to tell you I will do anything to keep what we have together, That I will try to follow through and give my effort to do better.
There are stories all over the world To be approximate about 7 billion These stories come in all shapes and genres Some short Others long Some adventurous Others sad and moving
and I walked outside and nearly broke my neck trying to watch the stars because that’s where I came from they tell me but if the galaxies are in my bones
You be provoking this angerwhen I simply wanna smile,I know you believe that the whole world is against usand there is no justice, but maybe it’s just usI don’t know what has gotten into me
Now, Joy was filled all over, And sadness is seen in some; Though joyous they would be, they seem sad But sweetness flowed on others minds.   Sadness was filled, by the day’s end
As I look at you You look at me We say nothing We stand there quietly Like strangers that meet on a busy street As a thousand days pass by We still don’t speak
I lifted my gaze from the agony and the sorrow my sight filled me with I felt as if life had no meaning anymore I was destroyed I was a soulless guy sitting down on a chair I had eaten my last taco...
When I gaze in the mirror, I cringe and turn away. Must I look the way I do Every single day?   I yell too often, speak too loud,
It claims the silence Strangles the hope, full of hollow eyes and Haunted souls and shudders of chilling rains. The trap is taut. I trip.
One The first is always the hardest. You have to push yourself into it. Cutting into innocence, cutting into your soul. At first it stings but soon it subsides and you crave the lingering feeling of control.  
of few things I am certain.  
So cryptic No one can understand Often in a state of bewilderment About every method or plan As time goes on The situation remains unclear Confusion and frustration continues to mount
Cold.My hands clenched, gently,hoping that yours were still holding mine.But I knew you were gone once my own fingertipsp
I am the essence of hopelessness. The girl labeled with a disorder I knew nothing about, In only fifth grade, taking two different drugs. But no one ever told me why.  
You
I haven’t written in a while, and maybe that’s because my stomach turns when I think about writing. See every time I pick up a pen with the thought of pouring out my feelings, my brain turns to you.

SIXTH SYMPHONY   Beethoven is a liar. He would have you believe that he wants you; but behind your back, he is glad to see you go.   Happiness
              My mind mulls over the past and asks what counts? What crossed the line? The car ride to the movies?
I feel exhaustion. I feel broken I feel lost and im still hoping That I can get out of this whole Im in Filling to the brim with water within Im trapped Im crying out and no one can see
You hurt me in the most worst possible ways. Now I'll never be able to see the light in these beautiful days. You broke my loyalty and trust, Now I'm convinced that the beer and these pills are a must.
The world is dark. The world is cruel The world is careless The world is bleak Those very thoughts cross my mind daily.
A lady came up to me today, She had lost both breasts With soul in her eyes she spoke of a savior. Naive promises of saccharine salvation and loving embraces  Coated her tongue. "It’s too good to be true"
Growing up sucks in this world Having pressures to be perfect You try to get away from it Clear your mind and run away But you still have that voice The one in the back of your head
I know it will never be true Because although they say, "I will always love you" Deep down inside All I hear are the lies Telling me everyday, "You will never be good enough
If
If I could talk to you one last time I'd ask, "Was it really worth it? Were the drugs really worth your life?
I don't love you Thank God I don't love you You didn't break my heart But you did break something inside me How could you do this to me? You said you liked me You said I didn't need to be nervous
Ashes to ashes Dust to dust   My heart was consumed by lust My heart ate up by desire My heart burned upon a pyre   Love is lost, kindness gone
Do you truly understand grief? It is what makes you set an empty chair beside you on dark nights, memories of a passed loved one.   Grief 
I am unloved and unwanted I wonder if I will ever be accepted  I hear the voices in my head  I see them laughing at me I want to be accepted I am unloved and unwanted  
don't fall in love with a poet
I don't want to die I do not want to die I have tears in my eyes as snot runs a river. There is pain in my chest and in my gut. I don't like pain so I don't want to bleed.
Captured  Fearful bird Tremor overrides Prisoner my body Heart died from fright Captured this poor soul Freedom lost Happiness dead Broken soul
There’s a place downtown That we used to go We'd stay up all night Laughing at our own jokes Having picnics and campfires On top of the world At least that’s what it felt like
I'm sorry I'm sorry I scream I'm sorry I threaten I'm sorry it's easier for me to lie and say "I hate you"
Sinking in this ocean of desolation. An eternity of sadness. Drowing in the waves of depression. I see blue. What can I do? Cry for help? A sorrowful Yelp? I'm sinking deeper.
Broke my arm  after he stomped on me, then I went home  And was called a freak.   I faked a smile   Around my friends.  Then cried alone  waiting for it all to end. 
You told me you wanted me to choke on my last words to you.
You are the breath that comes between sobs
Scientists claim you can hear even before you're born
There is no disappointment that hurts quite as badly as having absolutely no way of explaining what you'r
I'm like a pebble I've never been anything more than something as common as that However, it's that very average, common pebble that the not-so-average shoe kicks around.
               Rage against the dying world, Rage against the light, Rage against the sorrows that bar my heart from flight.                 The morning left me winded, The evening left me bare,
Just beyond the horizon, I say. Just beyond the horizon, And then, I will reach you, And then, I will be able to hug you again, And then, I will finally be able to breathe again,
This was no game
We absent mindedly wonderThrough our sad livesAll being dragged underHoping we're the one swho survives
Please don't stop me, my love, let me lie down and kiss the ground,   let me taste the taste of freedom on my tongue and remember my  
Read it out loud, and listen how stupid you sound
This poem is a conversation between two people. The colors represent the person in the relationship who is speaking:   One night the storm came back to claim me as its own
So here is a story about how I became oblivious to addiction with a substance I've been told was something God had gifted and a gift it was for a while at least no sense of pain and time's existance just ceased
It's like the taste of bitter coffee in the morning. Like a gaping hole in one's chest & a constant gnawing of bones & the drinking and drainage of blood.  
Nails peel cracking, uneven- some long, some short
If you come across a lonely girl With words as fine and frail as grains of sand, Tell her that most oysters lack a pearl, But do take into yours her tender hand.
Still, breathing, not a soundInert in my bed, lying paralyzed.You shook me, crying "wake up, wake up!"
  Dark. Damp. Dreary. The world feel so cold. Birds sing and light shines, yet I sit here, lost in my mind. My mood is steady and does not falter. Dwelling in Dark, Damp, Emptiness.  
Sometimes I think, we are just on the brink of discovery.   Friends and faces screaming names wispered silences broken frames.   Crying tears, and laughing faces
The beginning of a story is always slow. But soon enough everything becomes routine and you forget how that lull felt. You forget how it felt to be innocent and unaltered by the world.
Maybe there’s a r
I look upon the moving crowd Slowly sighing, looking down Hurting, fallen, angry, shy Now I cannot just seem to fly   I hear the Rumors in the halls Now I get unwanted calls
I remember—
I am the rock. I keep you centered, With your feet on the ground. I make you feel better, Even when I can’t make myself feel the same.
bye
because that's what you do to the people you love– you crush them between your clammy hands that you never let me hold, you wiggle your fingers to sift through those pulverized remains so that only the big pieces are left
It happened again. You are inside your bathroom, And you just locked the door.
Your emerald eyes at first set me ablaze, Your beauty was so delicately sweet. But I forgot the game the Devil plays And now I’m but an ember in my heat. Not viper sending poison through the veins
The smile on my lips, its pure bliss.  But you burned my heart,
The way the words flow from your lips, almost as if you remembered our kiss. Those long nights flew by,
And the way we once were, still thrived in the past. But the mistakes we had made,
It began as a shadow, Flowing in the rays of the sun, Hidden behind a meaningless form,
The dim light casts shadows across the room, softening the sad features her face held,
The weight of denial sits on my shoulders, adding pounds to an already crumbling structure, 
You can never forget the way it burns, the way your chest feels like its on fire, your heart consumed by sorrowful flames.
The tight grip of insanity spreads through my mind, stealing everything that once kept me living.
Dreams are just DreamsUntil you make them soarA Wish is just a WishUntil you fight to make it happen
My heart is empty The lies they tempt me Make me believe It’s just what I need   So I tell myself maybe it’ll work
Stand up and fight, Shy little girl, Meek as a rabbit – Taunted, tortured, and tormented By their words.   Stand up and fight, Glass doll, Pile of shattered shards with
He loved me through echoes.
Forlornness does not—come with Ease— So many sad—Faces, I could not come to Terms with Death; Therefore, I felt Nothing.   My honest Lack—of Emotion— Made me feel more—Detached.
As I sit alone on the brink of death My mind wanders to a gentler time. A time when the wind didn't bite And sun it set- never died. I remember the first kisses, the many, many kisses
I sit here alone.Sadder than my mind allows.Alone... With someone who hates me.That I can never seem to get rid of.Abused... By my own thoughts.That fold me into olbivion.
Encapsulate the music  
i do not have scars, nor am I scarred  or marked by such i am the scar the tree's root a tissue formed in  passed over scenes the wound's product
Once there was a heart that fell in love with a brain Together they made art but the brain would sometimes strain
An understanding friend
Innocence welcomed me with understanding and ease
I'm empty insideMy heart was ripped out of me
Happiness—that which one can neither hold nor keep It comes and goes, it ebbs and flows And no one really knows If they can make that leap Into the deep unknown  
tired of crying, a final tear fell 
Poetry of a writer He's certainly not a fighter He has his words he rhymes All the time He can't exist anywhere If his lady doesn't play fair All they do is stare Into a far out space
Purple orchid rolling fibres, coalescing in the first light of the day, against the hellish blazing eye,
In the hanging garden. Death. Death is calling. It wants. It needs. For me. To be set free.  
Another angel, capable of unimaginable things. Demons, screaming in her mind. Another angel, wants to die. Demons, swarm her heart. A young man, holds her close. His voice, tells her of her magnificence,
Why do you need an alarm clock when you never arrive at time? If you ask me, it's futile; just dont show up But be weary of the consequences that com with such ideals Got to look up and put on the usual poker face
You got me reeling, spewing anger, frustration, feeling! Fueling my insecurity, can't you see you are killing me!
remember when you told me about the monsters? how they take over, & get inside your head, & they stay- for a really long time. they're only gone every once in a while,
Our bright blood covering up the well stoned ground, Away from what I know I'm being led. I cannot comprehend what's all around, My home, my city, Carthage is now dead.  
its been so long and im still not over it we were closer to each other than i ever thought i could get to someone it breaks my heart when i see things that remind me of you but thats everything  everywhere
I cannot feel my feet or my frail hands. I have seen who Hawthorne calls the Black Man.   He lives in those I see most every day, Reminding me how much they do not care. I just want to escape quite far away
I can't breathe anymore. I'm drowning. How did I end up here? I am just failing, my inner self is cracking. Nothing is important anymore: my hopes my dreams nothing.
I've tried to hide my emotions and keep 'em bottled up
She is recollections of my past life, And she lurks in the walls of my terrified mind. I've been hearing mesmeric whispers from every direction, Even though she is nowhere in sight.
The cold and the confusion. The overlooked and the overdoses. The solemn and the silence. The fatigued and the forgotten. This is the only world I know.  
Every memory fading, One by one. Every bridge burning, One by one. I took every breath, One by one.     I will never be free from this hate. 
Devastated and destroyed, I can feel my existence crumbling.  The tension in my body, the strain in my mind,  The cold in my eyes, and the black in my heart. Everything is deteriorating.
I have always lived with strangers in my home. The agony of not having a true family is greatly disturbing. You see, demons terrorize my household.
I am the fake smile on my face. I am the loud girl in the class. I am the wall between my parents lies   I am the fake smile on my face. I am the sun that shines everyday for everyone else.
She'll never have a problem, you’ll never see her cry.
In my universe, My whole life is a curse, A curse I must live. In my universe, My mind is very fragile, My chin must face up. In my universe, All I ever feel is pain. And I have grown numb.
I look at people and see,  see the truth and power they carry. I want that within me, why can't this be?   Words cause pain, you may not know it, but I look at my eyes and all I see is rain,
I remember when you told me "please always be happy" and I said " I will be as long as you stay." Look at us now, we walk past each other like we never even met, l
Hold fast to love  for if it disappears 
Hollow Heart
Dear Love I hope this note reaches you well. Maybe sometime after noon? So you will remember To look for me
No one listen, No one hear, No one look ,in case you disappear.   No one pray for,  No one to cry, No one to wait for with hopes kept high.   No one to miss, No one to kiss,
Her fingers tremble with the unsaid words that urge to ink the blank page. From the green depths of her eyes lay sadness and tinges of regret. Across her arms are slashes made by herself.
The pain within my heart kills me, Drowns me, Completely destroys anything that comes my way.
Myself defined; distracted by other peoples definition of happiness while living a life defined by other people I was written, erased, re-wrote, RE-DEFINED by all these foriegn concepts, thoughts, ideas
I sit and think, Unaware of my surroundings, And could not speak. For I could not believe, What I already know to be true.
Birth, Lunacy, Death
Let's toastTo the restless nights To the tired eyes
A life too soon ended, So many left behind. Seventeen years suspended, Too early to resign. A father, a son, A friend to many. If such a thing could be undone, We'd spend a pretty penny.
heart made of stone finally leanred to feel it hurts so much
thick blanket of sleep shroud me in your gentle darkness so I no longer have to weep
I am a wave Part of the ocean Floating high, floating low And sinking When I crash My highs are So high I give God A high-five My lows are So low I'm not even in existence
I may say that I'm bold Or that my spine is made of steel But deep inside A pit so big It makes the world so unreal The rot that I feel From the smallest jab
There's a burning in my chest And I can't tell whether my heart is on fire, set alight by the rush of energy transferred when he placed his hand on mine for the last time
I'm happiest after the lowest of lows, the deepest of blows. 
Like the sidewalk flower, We develop from difficulties. Struggling through cement, We learn our lessons.   Like the sidewalk flower, We overcome our obstacles. Battling through bricks,
Blank. Nothing.  Just fine. Peachy keen. Him. Him. His face. His eyes. His cheeks. His mouth. His smile. His laugh. His perfect teeth.
I am just that one used for fun. Never serious. Just a game. I am not the most wanted player. I am wanted when others get bored. When they need a good laugh. They think I don’t feel.
The world has a softly spoken sentence
Even among the noise that fills the room, the silence haunts my soul. Lost in the crowd, an identity becomes blurred and hazy. The tears don't shed themselves anymore, they too are trapped inside.
The sun sets slowlyand again, I am left hereuntil it returns.
The sadness and sorrows we all live through We wish our wish would not be a lie But for it to become alive
  Being mature doesnt relate to age  A young man can only handle so much  Cutting yourself to let out all that rage  That depressing feeling when the blade touch  
I've been searching for hours, to find a reason why. It's 2 A.M. and I'm running circles in my mind. I whisper prayers that go unheard. I wonder when my thoughts will turn. To happy days
I saw the way they looked at me those eyes. They could tear me down and bring me back up and those eyes have done that plenty.
I met her on a Thursday.I talked with her on a Thursday.I bought her a coffee and gave her my number and fell for her on a Thursday.
Indigo is a darkness, insurmountable. Indigo is trying to love what you loved not a month ago, but the feeling isn't there. Indigo is trying to summon the will to care, but you can't.
FOR MY SANITY'S SAKE
To trust is to give yourself wholly to someone
I had no warning When I first met you My mind would be centered Around something new   You seemed to approach me As a different friend Now closer than ever I don't want it to end
She's the Girl.....
Buh boom, Buh boom. Faster and faster her heart began to beat. Heavy bag under her eyes, the results of no sleep. Things are bad again The days are saddening She sees the happiness she wants to portray.
I let myself be sad once in a wh
i still find your hairs on my pillow and i stillthink of you when i open the doori still manage to worry if i've left any papers on my floori still sneeze as much as i didwhen you were around
So, we sit We wait What now? The smooth, seductive sound Of the blues swim around us The intoxicating moods that shift all around I look at you You look at me
Cursed lips that say my name That first kiss I'd hate to claim Evil disguised as a beautiful girl My heart was blinded from another world To say my name you have to know it first
Flickering lights Sleepless nights I wonder When will my home be in sight? I travel alone Like a dog to a bone I search But never once glance for a phone What am I looking for?
Sometimes I feel like a failure A washed up piece of nothing all too aware of how inconsequential I am in this lifetime   Sometimes I want to give up I want to run away
The tears are always present But not always do they flow The flood gates are weakening The walls are beginning to bow.
18 and inn
Crying, screaming, with a runny nose until your voice is hoarse,  suffocating slowly from all the noise even though there isn't any force, 
I held on so tight to someone that the person was my breath without then I was outta breath and with them I felt as if I could live fo
   The girl that can’t love because of you Once so young and naive I allowed you to blind me of my perspective of love,  A love so beautiful, A love worth value that spoke volumes.
I will never forgetWhat was taken away from me
Oh how far I've come
You know when you have a breakup
I was willing to cut off my tail for you.   I remember the days, when I swam alone
If you wish whilst in a dream, it may very well come true It never ceases to amaze me that all my dreams are you Thinking of you is never hard, you never leave my mind
Authentic isn't something I would necessarily describe myself as.
There is a sad girl that lives within me And I try so hard to wash her from these veins But the water is never hot enough  And the suds are nothing Compared to the melancholy tilt of her smile
Oh sweet, sweet depression. How are you doing my dear? You're pulling me down so far, Down so far I can't hear. Oh sweet, sweet depression. My arms become hungry, As my makeup smears.
At fourteen life is confusing A rushing river of emotions we dont understand Alyson, you'll be okay. At fourteen life is hard Especially when you think you're in love.
In your eyes, their alone, out the light that guides you steps. Bier by what u see. Nothing more. In your red and fresh mouth kiss, and my thirst is not quenched, that every kiss would, drink whole your soul.
Just once… That’s what she said once to ease the pain
shaky breaths and flitting eyes when did we come to this point.
  I come to my sense
Imagine swimming in a sea of broken glass,every word spoken cuts like a blade across your skin.
Symbolism  
This is the scripture   Of the fallen souls,   Locked away in the chaotic darkness.   This is the story of   Wayward and Vagrant bodies,  
Dangling of a cliff, Fifty feet in the air Holding on to your rope- You can’t make me let go
Black is the colorOf the mothThat lays peacefullyOn my window sealNever making a sound Black is the colorOf the ravenFlying highIn the clear dark skyBut still a mystery in our eyes
The  Beauty of Life The  Beauty of
A hundred thin knives piercing my chest again and again Waiting for me to give up. Exsanguinating my heart. Enjoying the sound of their glory by my screams, That are buried six feet underground.   Angels turn into Devils When the light surrenders,...
Mama once told me “You’ll never find love If you can’t love yourself.” Maybe try to look like you care.” She left me in the bathroom Crying while I brushed my hair out. Mama said to me,
I think I started my new life As an anorexic angel. I woke up to my chapped pink lips Breathing snow that looked like ash
The pain and embarrassment he caused makes me tear up each time I see him; if I was to look him in the eyes, I would cry.
A mirror stands before me Whispers of hate and laughter surround me They point out the outside flaws So I put on a mask to hide the hurt and the pain
She sings a song so soft and sweet But it's filled with such sadness It makes you want to cry This song lets you feel her pain And you want to scream   How can this be fair you wonder
The earth slows to a stop And everyone cries
Eyes closed breath heavy the feel of your body over mine my hands on your body your curves so defined I place a kiss upon your neck & whisper in your ear
My old high school is haunted That what everyone says Not to me that would be absurd Still, it's what I've heard   I wander through these halls alone for now a pale kid known for his hand-me-downs.
The Blood Story  
Tell Me Again 
Who am I without any of those filters or fake edits? Well I am me I am someone who is naturally beautiful yet goofy all by my personal line of credit I am someone with flaws just like anyone else
My life is kind of hectic  Like a completed checklist When I look back on my life I see that I have dropped some fine dimes
You shoot me down bang bang. That's why I need another story.
I was born into this world by parents and adopted by you You didn’t have to adopt me, but you wanted to keep me I wanted to be your pet, love and devoted to you it’s true
When you commit suicide you kill yourself Others then die inside and are robbed of wealth You are valuable to others more than you know Suicide just let’s all your weaknesses show
I've been cursed to spend my life fighting. Darkness and war follows me everywhere I go. Fire and venom are in my veins.
Don't touch me, I'm fragile. I flutter and float in the wind,
You!  
Bottle Things Up  
Thoughts of Blue  
If.
If  
Sometimes I say "Look away, please, this won't be pretty" 'Cause it won't Sometimes I linger Past when I ought Something in me says "Third man down" And I don't cry My tears are wings
I told him one thing That's all "Help me believe in something I wanna believe in you" We were one I suppose We were a pair of broken wings When I went one way He fell down dead
I don't really feel like writing today. I'd rather be naked on the ground, head-to-toe exposed, so I could really think and hear the pines rustle. I would bury my sadness in a funeral mound
Buckets of rain poured down from the sky, as though the angels wept, mourning what was to come.   I found myself lurking outside at school,shrouded in a black hoodie
I just smile I'll never let you get close to me Because I'm broken Mentally and physically But I just smile Knowing that no one cared If i was here there Even is i disappeared
Hello my name is...
You were born.
My life is like music:
The words unspoken are louder than those yelled across the room. I must escape the voices they're closing in taking me as their prisoner. Retreat behind the yellow door close it and keep it there
You left a residue of memories That I cannot clean I left upon dawn Hoping to be unseen   Tempted to speak Distant murmurs Suffocate the sound Of all that used to be  
A wall, a wall with a hole so deep, so dark, the depths could never be known. A road, a road never traveled, nor will it ever be. An animal, lonessome and mateless, never to find his own.
It's been Three Hundred Thousand minutes. Long enough to seem like an eternity, although it has really only been Seven Months.
with honor, i wear all my scars
What I show you is, Not who I want to be, But what you want to see. I aim to please, Society. They say to me, "Be a tall, thin, Long haired, white teeth, Light-skinned beauty,
What I show you is, Not who I want to be, But what you want to see. I aim to please, Society. They say to me, "Be a tall, thin, Long haired, white teeth, Light-skinned beauty,
Lately, I haven't been able to get you out of my head. Your name overflows my mind continuously throughout the day.
  It'd be nice to have someone always by your side, Through the good, the bad, the love, the cries, It'd be nice to never feel lonely, To have someone to make you like you're their only,
Rain drops fall A heart beat stops A girl dies A call to the cops A boy cries A family gathers to morn
A stab in the heart from the blade you called love You said sweet things to my face then turn around and switched up Whats real & whats fake? In this time I couldn't tell
I became the shelter, a safe haven, a building of four cement walls and a celling. Study enough to survive the storms, and the battles outside of my doors.
She's the girl thats not ment to love To never recieve it on earth, only up above She tries to smile & act so very tough In the back of her mind is the reminder that she'll never be good enough
I think my life ahead in more than four or five paces. I think about the end. The finish line.  It all ends in tragedy.  Car crashes and infedelity.    I write really sad poems when I'm missing you.
Days are tough I put on a happy face Mask the pain   No one knows The real you beside few I feel lost   Tears fall down People always ask, "why be sad?" "Just be happy"
Tingling sensations oing through my ear and your distinctive lips draws me near. Vibrations going through me bed. Is this love or lust instead? Wake up early in the morning and i'll be here
straight lines brings back a flash back in time from sitting in the kitchen mama making sweet apple pies. Her lover made her heart race more ways than any other.
Scattered on the floor was a broken plate,
Down every street, On every wall, In every room, Are windows, mirriors, puddles, and reflection. I march right by without a look but, sometimes I cant... Sometimes it pulls me, Calls to me,
Vast and continuos , far and wild My love for you, I cannot hide I long for the sea, rough or calm I'll sail you from the dusk 'till dawn My heart for you, shall always keep For sea, you are so full of life
  With you, I finally felt loved. Your lips were softer than butter, kisses so soft, sweeter than the sweetest honey.
Who do I become 
 i know your tired of the constant texts,the constant ventin i know for a fact its an obsession/ I’m just tired, i need some sleep, i tried coutin sheep/, i tried xanex
find your own bliss.I found it inlovesickness.found it in lyingawake in bed,closing eyes tightto imagineyour headresting softly next to mine
This sadness. I feel my chest being crushed ever so slowly. Pushing harder and slower. Farther and lower. My heart throbs like a beating drum before battle.
Love. One word. That has so much meaning and power behind it. I mean, I’m not even sure I know the value  of it is anymore. I thought I did.
Upon the beds of my frozen lake Where my roses were left to sleep She lay In the meadows of my broken hopes And dreams that never came true She sat She heard his voice She heard my voice
You
The beginning was full of warm colors. Then came to an end. My heart starts to break slowly, just as the leaves begin to fall.
Do you know how it feels To watch you and know That you'll never see me That you'll never hear me call your name   Do you know how it feels to want you To hear you laugh and cry 
My heart is racing. 
I remember the first day
 
Every day is a gift,  all the days just flow so swift try to live positive & for others try to uplift... <3 You are here for a reason bigger than you I know some time you wonder what am I here to do? Is it some thing huge &  grand, here...
I have never wanted a black man before He who walks around with his under clothing out He who had but 5 words repeated over and over I want this man I covet him like a child covets a charismas toy
All he wanted was to be loved, but no one ever threw love his way. His heart already have cracks in it from what that girl did to him the other day.  How can he love when all love done was bring him pain?
I woke up this morning with no doubt in my mind. Do what needs to be done with having only a certain amount of time. Getting ready to leave, oh! Look at that sunshine. Grab my jacket to walk out the door but the sun just wasn't shining anymore.
The smell of smoke lingers in the air Blowing towards the crack longing for freedom to escape its beholder I am the smoke looking for a place to go To grow. I can fly with the wind and
          Every morning when I lay awake   i don't see you anymore  heart of mind is the key to this relationship  baby I will always love you unless you love me to  I put my life in the line 
so midless and numb; i remember the feeling of blades on my skin
When I was five I wanted to be a princess.
Let me start off by saying god bless you The world's greatest philosopher couldn't fathom the words to express you We tend to lose all hope and live in regret Meanwhile the world continues to spin and time is being spent
I am quiet and quite emotional, many used to say I was really antisocial. I have limped, kicked and crawled from the at school threats, nobody knows my darkest secrets.  
So lightly you appear And my mind just can not compare Since everything is so different. How can it be this colorful? Still my sorrow lingers on too.   My heart aches at the loss
I wake to loud booms and crashes just beneath my skin.
I have always wished for something more a little hope, a little love, a little bit of something. But now I sit by myself wishing for nothing.   Darkeness surrounds me
60
i hate my scars. they are not lovely, they are not bravery.  they dictate my life. they tell me what i can wear, where to go who i can trust, who i can love...
Who is that lonely girl Sitting on the corner of the street Who is that lonely girl Not saying a word while she eats Who is that lonely girl Wearing the outdated shoes Who is that lonely girl
and perhaps
Me
Alone. Isn't that how it starts?I sit alone, waiting for a call A call that could possibly save my life. I am alone. My depression eats me alive But I still try. Try. I try to be happy
You Are You feel lost
A Brighter Day
My head hurts My hurt hears too I never expected that At least not from you
This is for all the hearts i broke,I want you to know im sorry. and my tears are now soaked as a young girl,
A bubbling Laugh, a warm Smile,
I feel the warmth of strangers voices but I know I am alone.     In a semi coma a darkness pulls me under, to a sea of thought.    I wonder why can't I fell each snow flake land on my skin. 
My heart pumps when I see you My hands sweat when I see you My legs shake when I see you My eyes water when I see you My mind fails to load when I see you But you pass me when I see you
She sat alone with her sorrow  Didn't give a damn what they thought
Is that all I am to you? I’m just another drunk girl at Life’s party. Drunk on alcohol? No. Drunk on the hurting. It’s so reoccurring and my vision is blurring, Decisions crinkling…
You're in my dreams again and I don't know how you got there. You've been gone for two years, yet I still miss your smile. Tell me how I can get you out of my hair. I'd do anything to stop being so sad over you.
You told me you love me I knew it was a lie But down inside I believed it And stupid me Misuderstood this for inspiration Knowing that this fantasy was going to end soon
Depression is a stigma
Who am I? My name is Seraiah Jean Cook But what does that mean? I'm more than a name I'm just a girl in this world trying to be sane My life hasn't been the best
Do I have to have a destination if I decide to runaway? Or would I end up in the perfect place for me? We'll, see. We'll have to see. Let's wait and see. 'Cus I noticed the sun hates taking breaks,
On that day the wolfs sad song rang true I sat by the pond broken and crying That was the day that i lost you The pain was so bad surely i was dying   I loved you to death but we're through
Love, where are you? It is your special day and you aren't here. Where, Oh, where  could you have gone? Could you be with everyone,  but me? Isn't my heart important?
I am the clutter
In my sleep I feel a cold draft that much reminds me of the words you ended a world with A world full of many Many beliefs, loves, words, and growth Growth between two minds in limbo  
The Begining
You Often Dreamed Of Things You Felt Were Impossible To Come True...But One Day, It Happened. It Really Happened.

“Life is like drowning,” She says, her tangled hair rustling in the breeze.
They tell me emotion is weakness. They say I feel far too much to create something productive. But I can't control it. I am me, Because of what I feel. They say I speak far too excitedly,
   
We have a short temper Do something either we dont like we lose it Yells and screams in face Hurtful comments  Threats of leaving Slaps and pin downs Throwing and stomping Holes in walls
Extinguish my desire; it burns bright because I fuel the flames. Please, put out this fire heated by my passion for you.   Look past my scars; don't mind my scratches. Nothing here is marred;
I am let down once again.
I’m not sure what I am feeling.
I'm nothing but a windshield, no one looks at me unless there's something wrong and even then they just wipe me off and keep it moving,
In the beginning, it was love at first sight My world was full of darkness, but he was my light I loved him and he loved me, I thought I could be myself and be free
I still remember,
Happiness and Joy errupt like a geyser at Yellow Stone,
My love grows stronger with each passing day, it blooms like a backyard rose in May, my heart like the rose through the gentle rain, is watered and nourished, though the skies are grey,
Being alive im cold I cant breath Life being taken from me as i lay asleep My mind wondering , whats happening to me Life isnt over?  Than why do i feel dead Fighting a nightmare Looking for a dream
I sat in dismay Higher went the price The room grew fuller I started giving my life Shiney and more pricey It filled my eyes My heart grew big It dimed my sight It rose to a point
Luna's crystal veil glows bright tonight. It lays across the top of the ocean as bypassers cross it, yet it doesn't rip. Alone she stays, glowing with no one to adore her
A Life Interrupted Darkness falls upon my thoughts And yet I cannot sleep My mind so full of shadows Reaching in the deep
my heart has been through so much, i figured i wouldnt have to take another break...
I am of flesh I breath sin I keep to myself what lies within   But do express And I'll give you notice When storms draw near I feel their closeness   Love one love all
Buried in woes, Don’t dream, don’t dream. Every time her eyes will bleed, For tears cannot ever express, The harsh thorns of this beautiful rose.   She sold her soul for the beauty in tomorrow,
Locked Up Life in this prison ain’t really so easy for you You on the streets going back and forth to Juvie.
Painful thought Always  Involve someone i love Never someone i hate Has the world gone mad? Are people out to get me? That could be it... Everything hurts now
So far Far from you Far from not knowing what to do Far from what I know I don't think I can grow I can't go without you for a single day Because wihtout you there are no words ro say
The vaguely audible drip-drop of tears onto floor The sorrow, miserable countenance she wore The expanding of an internal flame Who is, I wonder, truly to blame?   She slouched, unevenly sitting
I’m tired of being your entertainment. How long will I go on without any payment? I’m sick of being convinced to stay
Fearless is the absence of the fear Fearing less is a message held dear Bravery or neccessity, the motive unclear Tongueless or eyeless, his silence impure A road less tread, a story unread
Behind this barrier that you see Is a broken girl with shattered dreams Behind her confidence Leaks insecurity But she wears her mask and she wears it well
I am a parasite Love, masked in depression Darkness conjured from the light The familiarity is lost on me Suicide is too disgraceful I feel numb, the pain no longer subsides
I am a parasite Love, masked in depression Darkness conjured from the light The familiarity is lost on me Suicide is too disgraceful I feel numb, the pain no longer subsides
For those who live and those who die,
Emptiness.   That’s honestly how it all feels.  
Radiance, torridity and stars exploding on the inside of your eyelids.  Symphonies of light and sound, and hell with it’s unwithstandable blazing. 
The world made sense when I layed in your arms, I felt safe there was no need for alarm, You were my hero you said that you loved me, and stupid dumb me, I actually believed!
Now I know what love is, and no its not bliss, nor the feelin you get the first time you are kissed, Love is Pain. Storm raging insde you like a hurricane and all you see is their face feeling your heart race,
i had to realize that it could never be. he was too old i was too young and we were both too shy.   maybe it was a facade a front maybe it was all just ludicrous.
To this place I let my memories cleave- Long ago, a time on water’s horizon, A moment ethereal I never want to leave.   On a large, cool stump, love was received, Drawn from my heart for you were my siren.
Come, Sit down and view my world Let me take you in   They say my name As if it is I that should be ashamed. And yet, I win another battle  
Chuan de, river blossom's day, Tian, Hua Fu rong chu shui, like day rissen from night, hei ye ni, and i, stand over rui, see those flowers hua cao? Wo kan, say i, why ta bu shuo? dark, night ta shi...
Trying to be in a relationship with him is like trying to smoke a pack of cigarettes. He's addicting and his smell intrigues me. The first time with him isn't so great, but something about him makes you want to go back.
 Ode to Darkness   You have existed  since the beginning  of time and for too many years and to too many minds have been misunderstood  
You may have it all, With your lovely eyes and bashful smile, But all of you won't matter in a while. I've given in to the greater good, And it's time to let it be understood.  
As light approaches the lenses And the camera frames my face The flash alerts my eyes My features begin to erase   I stare at nothing   But the fallacies of a picture
Being told I am not enough I get hurt because I care too much I turn to things that help me up. The art of makeup makes me forget who I was I got myself a new identity since I cannot go back to what I was. 
Through the cracks I fall, Waiting for the moment of certainty, So I can grab a handhold and regain stability.
What you see before you is not what I see in the mirror. For the mirror knows the true person who always hides behind the mask. Tell me, is it true that the most common mask we put on every day is a smiling face?
i.Your kisses taste like silver and lead,your words bullets left in the barrelas my hands trace over the triggerand tempt you to release them.
She came to me Eyes filled with tear and she began to confine to me, She said "I fell in love with him because i thought he was best for me, looking at the entire world in an illusion 
He asked her can he come through!! I seen the comment as i scrolled up my screen It left me emotionally broken I could hear my heart Scream. I know i wasn't perfect But at times I tried,
Behind all the filters,  my pictures hold natural beauty. Behind the makeup and touch-ups, I have freckles that engulf my face. Behind the smiles, I hold back years worth of overcome struggles
They say pain is temporary Forgive me for thinking its scary Maybe it's a fantasy, no fairy I want comfort on the contrary. Pain is a inhibitor, because it inhibits us. You could call it bondage,
If i had a penny for every time you said "I love you" I would be banking with at least a million and two. But if I had one for every time you meant it I wouldn't even have a single cent.
Mood:BlankMy mind is a blank canvasI want to paint my mind with colors of youEach stroke being a different reason to love everything that is youMood:Indigo
I am perfectly imperfect
No one tells you the bad parts about relationships...
I am strong,Even if I do not belong.I am dedicated,Even if I am continually deprecated.I am loved,Even if hatred keeps me shoved.
Vivid Loving   If one day, our laughter disappearsWould you settle for silence? If I no longer smiled and shed only tearsWould you let go and not give me guidance?  
I feel like I have these moments where I think it’s okay if I die. 
I never feel rushed Or pushed
You wonder if it's all in your head. Why can't you run awayor cry for help? Once again, you are driven against the cold cement.   You become paralyzed. Unable to move
i’m sad sunshine body sunlight veins the sun it’s a new day but not a fresh start and i shouldn’t be sad
She Is The Sun
He'll beat you with secrets He'll be drunk off lies You'd be a fool to fall into his trap   I know I cannot control you Your life is yours to live Experiment with your set of boys in
This hurtsFor some reason or another this hurts
She woke up every day Struggling to get on her feet, She heard her mother say “Teeth! Teeth! Teeth!” To coax out even a grin that was so rare one cant help but think that the chances were better
I've lived long enough to know how it goes That lovable feeling, keeping me on my toes I've lived long enough to tell you how it ends The infamous "we can still be friends" But what I can't tell you is why
For as long as I can remember, my best friend was me. Until I started to turn on myself, feeling trapped rather than free. I felt ugly and worthless inside and out. Being stuck in my head
I had my head beneath the water     I was about to take a breath      To let the quick intake of dark liquid cleanse me with death
My feelings are rewritten and straining as I see others struggling to make it in life The winds in my heart are changing   I remember when my opinion of the world was so loving, so unbending
When you’re feeling low… and you feel like you’ve got nowhere to go … that sick feeling is all I feel as my head begins to reel My vision starts to blur
When I stood in front of the crowd, I wanted to run, but my voice wavered, my hands shook.   When I stood in front of the crowd, I wanted to cry like I did when I was child,
I’ll never know the difference between fire and ice, They both strike a nerve under indifference, Burying deep under the folding of membranes too hard to predict.
I once wanted to be a princess. A Disney one to be exact. I once wanted to rule the world. How ambitious was that. As a young child, anything was possible. I would bet my front tooth. 
The wildest, rawest sound I have ever
My eyes are blue, like the sky at night when the stars are out, illuminating the distance between Point A and Point B, but they never cease to shine,  even when the day replaces the night, 
  Think, we are living on this speck of something in space.  Only this speck of something radiates love. We are able to find love in this place.  We are able to discriminate and hate. 
L's
On the left, the lust who yearned for love, On the right, the love whom was never loved.   Together an iron triangle full of deceit. Only the hearts on the side trruly beat.  
                           FREEDOM
It is the highest expectations that have the furthest to fall,
How am I supposed to love myself, when no one seems to love me, how am I supposed to keep my head up, when all this hurt pushes me down.? As I keep going, day through day, it builds up, breaking me down,
Every song says your name
I used to tell myselfthat I cannot loveI will not loveI wont allow my self tobecause that was easierit was easier to break heartsand say goodbyeand runwhen you don’t have anythingholding you backor tying you downmy mindand bodyhad gone numband for...
I am not comfortable with who I am,
when he spotted the abandoned clothesline he knew it would be a safe place to hang his drenched fabrics to dry (safety was always his priority; practical thinkers are
Sadness is dark like a dark winter's night Sadness taste like salty tears falling down your face Sadness smells like dead rose  Sadness looks like glass being broken Sadness sounds like your last breath
Will my smile hide, The tears behind,  My lost and clouded, Dark green eyes?
   
I am from colonial style homes, From Sunday morning church and Bible study Wednesdays. I am from the fall leaves on the driveway. (Various oranges, glowing, It tasted like apple spice pie.)
The world seems so small from inside here; The horizon stretches beyond what I see as clear. These bars hold me back and keep me in. Will I ever get out and say that I am living?  
She showed me how to paint.
Why did you go? For that I'll never know. 
The layers of tears that I've cried have stung my eyes to that point of where seeing just becomes painful. I don't want to give up. But I'm being forced to give up. Or am I? No, this whole situation is fucking bullshit.
my family hates me, and i’m not adoptable 
We all drink the world in misery as shuffled songs pass through cheap headphones
Maybe, just maybe, you can see me screaming.
  Through printed font on burnt crisp pages,
Standing in a room full of shadows Darkness envelops the mind, Fearful thoughts race around your body, And you find yourself alone.   Thinking of past memories, Reliving the pain,
The day you left me, it was the day of destruction, it was the day that nearly killed me, through all the pain and the tears.   I remember yet, the way we sat together, for the very last time,
Sometimes things just seem to fall apart, and never fit in again. Sometimes the sunshine fades away, and never comes back again.   The emptiness in my soul threatens to eat me from within,
He
Brown, cat-like eyes, Smiling at me from the swing, Swaying in the garden, his lips formed that perfect smile.   He raised an arm, beckoned, and I stood up, fell lovingly into his arms,
You say you’ll always be there Listen to me As if you really care So many things flow through my head
 Don't you get it? I'm not okay I'm not just tired I'm not fine I'm not good My life is not great  Don't you get it? You need to understand that you don't know everything
6w
how many smiles have you faked?        
And then it hit me;you never loved me. You don’t treat someone you loved like that. 
Pain pain pain pain
I know I can't talk without stammering. especially in front of you and others. the memories are to hard for me to think about again. this poem is lame. i fucking know already
It's easier to be alone where you know no one can touch you. It's easier to be alone because you don't have to care for anyone. It's easier to be alone because you know you can't hurt anyone.
Bewildered by your smile Ready to fall at any time Opened up and let you in Kept you sheltered from the storm. Everything came to a stop
I don't know what I'm doing here.
Sometimes I feel like I'm suffocating, and i don't want to be saved Sometimes i imagine a tombstone, with my full name engraved I dream of my funeral, the people who would cry,
The snow softly kisses the earth
The pounding in my head won’t go away The rush, the high, flying None of it will go away The rush, the rush, it’s supposed to end The night over, the day breaking --but fuck that why end it early?
I remember your face on which there was pain and disbelief distorting your features beyond recognition when I saw you for the last time. Forgive me For I caused your eyes
Ah, love, you hurt me so, With your sweet thoughtless words. They hold so much meaning, or so I hope, That blossom honey springs from your mouth As if from a fountain, a stone Cupid's bubbling lips.  
Knowing that you are alright my future always looks forever so bright
Bursting at the seams With screeching pains of loss Broken hearts bitterly beat Full of deep regret
Collapse. In that moment you know there is a loss. Another tree falling in the forest with no one around to hear. A simultaneous explosion and disintegration,
Caught off gaurd her laugh made me stop, and pause, sadness surfaced from deep within my chest, slowly I turned to look, dissapointed I didn't find you there, I carried on  
Skin is splotchy from lack of nutrition Dark crevices beneath my eyes from restless nights Hands shacking from loss of stability Eyes sparkless due to a runaway soul Mind caged no longer able to feel
Tears, streaming down my face Insecurities, flooding my mind The clock is counting down; Life's a race Of the confidence we're trying to find.   I show you a happy smile; an open embrace
I hide my eyes so you can't see
Neglect–ed Ringed out with blood and stretch marks. Wrinkles written in between the crevices of my eyes. They sting and burn. Fighting, fighting, and falling. I kept falling. I failed.
You walk in, my eyes, blinded by the vision of God's most perfect creature. You say to your homegirl... I’ll be RIGHT back. I could use a lil snack to soak up this liquor.
Thank you for trying to save me. Thank you for trying to make me love myself, but as you can clearly see, I am beyond saving. I have lived my entire life feeling worthless.
Plaster my smile  Grin at strangers Issues are masked Conceal the sadness Hide the tears Smile until aches Must be strong Finish the act Fake the happiness
White washed windows on a rusted pane, the remnants of your laugh. I should have grown strong day by day,  but my knees fell too weak and you slipped through my guard.
Fragile as the flight of a butterfly,Is this love that lives in constant fear.Ready to fight for its desires
Captivated by her beauty, the beast overcomes me.The beast i cannot tame. The beast that tells me who i am. And who i want to be.I see the way you look at her.The way she looks at you.
10     9       8           You count down, It's almost time. 7   6      5         The tears they fall, No going back now. 4
You love me now, You love me never again,
Silver rain cascades down my face,
The hurt, the agony, the pain, the betrayal, the lies, the broken promises, the assumptions, the hatred, the run arounds, the tears, the wounds, the scars, the dark, the pain, those dangerous thoughts, the nights alone, the days of torment, the
Reality fades away, and once again I'm trapped in my mind. I'm left with my thoughts, that scare me with all their doubts.
Remembering the time when i wanted to get older, thought things would be a lot easier as I`ve seen grown ups do their own way.   As my height grows inch by inch, clothes I wear changed day by day.
            Free spirit is my trait I value the most.
Are you ready to see what hides behind the curtain? Can you handle something so uncertain? All you can hear is laughter from her lips, and see a shadow moving her hips. Are you ready to pull the curtain? Are you ready for the uncertain?
Hi, My name is Abriana, and I'm addicted to him. He is like my drug, never good for me but still good enough to silence the pain.
You cover my eyes You open the door
Heartbreak is something I cannot take. I fly just to fall, Crashing and burning. I've smiled this smile for to long, I'm starting to believe somethings truly wrong. Your love was a lie
As the sunset and the stars begin to shine the only thing crosses my mind is WHY
"small lips", "big nose", "pale face", "big eyes", "small thighs", "fat in the wrong place",  "awkward", "strange", "too shy",  but "dont let them get to you", "dont you cry" smile, smile, smile. 
Let us linger here a while in the foolishness of things. Let the wind and the rain cleanse all our sorrow and shame.
Him
who is there during the mental breakdowns trying to calm you?
I scream and shout You hear me from across the room I'm a bright prescence even when you want nothing to do but get away Always laughing Wearing a constant grin Doing my best to pull out a smile or a chuckle
Love Day in and day out Sexuality questioned because I don't follow the common guide to attraction I want to love too But why should I follow society's rules? I want to be held I want to cuddle
Who is the real me? Am I the person who people look to for a good laugh when they’re feeling down?Am I the person who is there for my friends and family in their times of need?
Behind the curtains there is this lonely Gil.
I’ve felt this way For many, many years Hiding and pretending
I changed my look I changed my hair.   I changed for friends who won't be there.   I changed my smile I changed my clothes   I thought my change would be worthwhile  
The guard is up No one can get in No one can see what I feel I don't want to see your face with pity clear upon it.   I built this guard many years ago When you shattered my heart
I was misguided. My demons would taunt me. Convince me to wander on countless occasions. I'd roam around until they'd finally attack. They always did and always do, as soon as they see their chance. They feed on any sign of weakness.
I am filled with lost hopes and dreams and confusing words, lines, pages what does this mean? I'm still in the process of adding words still trying to figure out this thing called "Life" 
No one is looking for me.   I haven't disappeared, but why can't they see me?   That's alright, I'm not hoping to be found,   I already found myself
Has Anyone Told You... Today? If Not, Let Me Be The First! Has Anyone Told You... That They Love You Let Me Be The First! Has Anyone Told You.... That You Are Beautiful
I hate everything you said to me,                                                   
Sometimes  AsDays go by,NothingEqualsSufficientSubstance.
The moment I met you, My soul knew to stay away from you, For it knew you'd be the death of me. Of course, my heart felt what it did And I suffered the tragic consequence.
When you look out through the window pane,  Your deepest fears run through your brain. Just don't blink your eyes.   A demon with a diabolical grin- The odor of putrescent skin.
I'm suffocating I’m drowning My cells collapsing I’m being dispersed Becoming air I am almost nothing
Four years. Four years and you're letting go, not me. I desired to keep you. Like the folded up piece of paper that you placed in an envelope and sealed with your wax kisses.
wreckless of the wicked makes me yawn
The Message in a Bottle By Tapiwa Mzumara     Standing in front of a crowd
Smiling, laughing, eternally cheery Why can't anyone hear my screaming? Showing the world my best face Make sure that the mask stays
Mirror mirror on the wall Do you see me thin and tall? School is rough, the kids don't see The person I'm truly destined to be I try and smile or force a laugh All behind a face that's masked
The hour glass flips over as soon as you're born Time creeps away like nocturnal raccoon You go about life like a winding staircase At first you take caution with every landing you reach
The delay is over and the chapter of adolescence we've all anticipated has come to breath;  
My depression seeps down deep within,eating my happiness, leaving me weak and thin.A monster of despair curls up deep inside,biting, clawing, scratching at my mind.  
We say we have it all planned out but do we really know five years later will it be the way we thought it would we both know we don't want to go in all alone  but are our dreams leading us upon two differńt roads
You strum the strings of m
Intouched we see a heart that beats bounces to him where the sun pure bleeds never touched but seen In touched we see there in sleep odor of crys there in pure heat
Sadder than a souless wanderer Is a bodiless soul.  When a wanderer dies 
As empty as I am, I'm still trapped in the quicksand, Struggling to get out, To be on solid land.   This hollow feeling Has only a beginning -- There seem to be no end.
I know you may not like it but it has begun.
When I look backAt our time togetherI realize what we hadI took too lightly, like a feather. The fun, the laughs,The smiles, your kiss-These are thingsYou can't expect me not to miss.
We sangWe dancedWe talkedWe walked Our lipsThey metOur thoughtsThey locked We worked as friendsWe found some timeTo talk aloneIt was sublime
The music in my bloodIt is a drum that keeps on beating
