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.
"So what are you?" A question too familiar Years ago my mind would halt, frozen My heart would pound. "I do not know" I did not want to know. "Are you Asian?" Your ignorance now shows
Tell me something Not an empty something Tell me the truth Don't tell me to just smile Or hide it all inside Cause those things aren't working I've got no one by my side.
The lies grow like wildfire, spreading everyday. As soon as i think things settle down, a thought ignites the flame
Through out the occasions so many lies
Sometimes I hold my head in my hands and sink into the sheets teeth in a soft lip turned chapped too much pushing on me from all sides from nowhere
Behind every filter which drapes imperfections, Lies you. Behind every word or argument you feel, Lies you. Behid every tear or aching, Lies you. But who are you? Who am I?
With all the cups you gave,
Don't twist your words as for me to not understand. I am young but I am not dumb. I can see you from your ins to your outs as you tongue tie your words. Don't waste your time, I see right through you.
"Feminism" is taking over, and wow, they have a point. Men can do what women do and women do as men. But is it really feminism... When we tell a girl that she ought to wear pants
Who am I really without a filter? Because with it, I feel as if I have shelter I don`t want them to see the real me Yet, I feel like I should let it be 1977, Hudson, Walden
My mother is weak And I cannot stand it She is feeble, stupid, and plain Who are you? And where is the woman that I once knew? You’re a weakling, darling A scaredy little ghost
So you found out Well, how do you feel? Me? I feel vulnerable Anxious Confused Judged Hurt Angry Destroyed This was a side of me that you weren't ready for
Live the make-believe Congregate falsehoods Hold them up on a pedestal For all to see Lies become truth We need lies To bury reality Live a dream Without the truth
scream soft smile bright blind yourself with loving light bask and sway for one more day to hold the scream in tight blooming flowers choking weeds blind the world with loving deeds
Buffeted by the impurtuity of the wise, and thought a fool for false reasons-- who is to say that a man is not himself capable for his own short comings?
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
In all actuality, We are not flawless What we believe, is a broken reality. We are broken girls, We are stitched up and sewed up, With our toes curled.
I hear the lies that seep through your lips I prepare my ears for your false words I prepare my feelings for your pitiful efforts to spare them Do you lie to hide your mistakes?
You may think you u
Tell me what I want to hear. Give me every reason to believe that you love me just from the waterfalls of your words So I can drown in them.
You’re looking in his eyes And you seem to be falling for his lies You can’t seem to see The secrets behind that smile You don’t know That honesty isn’t his style
Does it hurt ? Can you feel it? can you prove?
We appear as our best We try to out do the rest
Fisad now broken, Not a lie to others, but to self. WhoWhatWhy Am I?
Pop, Pop, Pop
I'm a name and a face, who feels out of place I'm insane in the brain, "Maybe it should be replaced" Is what they say, when they're are jealous. When they see whats inside, the fun adventures I have in my mind.
Falling, fading I'm slowly losing myself ino the eternal hole of darkness pain, betrayal, and abandonment is all I have felt in my 17 years of life my smile does not reach my eyes
Why are lies so easy to tell, and truth so hard to say Lies just give you more to remember and eventually you give it away Do people even realize the damage lies can do?
the girl they see quiet, shy, sweet, strong, the girl I am. loud, outgoing, smart, deep, I am both girls unfiltered. and im completely happy,
Without a filter I'm just a kid, Without a father and a mother in prison, I've seen some things that you'll never see, Things that make small children scream, But what you can never see,
I once wished on you. You failed me twice.
Its a feeling not a knowing. Curiosity and randomness lead me to you. I feel so blue. We are so clueless. Where to begin and where to end.
Authenticity The orgin of all truth The face of deceit
The key to mystery is balance; Though, I suppose, it doesn't really matter if you're not trying. Sometimes the silence doesn't hang quite as heavy as it used to
Every aspect of my life has Always been a splintered crack between myself and who I wanted to portray. It wasn't my fault. I just wasn't good enough. I was not satisfied with who I was,
To be honest, Society, It's the worst, And it's the best.
I stand at the horizons of other men,
I have two faces but I only show one No one knows my true face, none All you can see is my mask Nobody even cares to ask Who cares? My real face shows my trepidation
When I had no place to go, your door was closed. And when I knocked, I heard it lock. So I let the rain cover me, and as it flows with my tears, I know that I will soon have to face the mirrors.
Fidgeting, sweating palms, racing heart- Please relax I say; my insecurities can rip me apart. I'm so scared, on the fringe of fright. This disorder makes me believe that I'm not at all bright.
I was handed a mask at a very young age. Society offered, and like the rest I took the bait.
Fiting into my jeans is almost as difficult as fiting in with everyone else. The fear of never being wanted is almost as scary as my fear of being "that girl."
Little ones, afraid of the dark, know more than we do. They know secrets are in the dark,
Faith is never an easy entity to face. What does it look like? Does it have two eyes? No eyes at all? Faith is walking when everyone tells you there’s no ground.
If I were less afraid I would have turned myself inside out and shown you even the darkest sublevels of my conscience. I would have scooped out my thoughts Like the innards of a pumpkin
Following an empty roadAnd down a narrow path
heroes. we used to believe we could see them everywhere,
The doors open for shows at seven, And prohibit customers past eleven. When the time comes and the clock strikes the hour, Hundreds of people charge into the tower. Swarms of customers all rushing about,
This brown paper bag claims to be me, A me that is free, and pulsing with personality A me that is open, gentle, and kind. A me that cuts deep!... With the wit of my mind.
I remain here. I'm frozen in place, No one is here to warm me. No one is here to wipe my tears. No one is here to hear my screams. No one is here to chase away my fears
Winter Flows Through Me, While life is changing now. Life dies slowly now.
I stand and I spin, No, I don't spin, I only stand; Glimpses of joy tease- then dance away Spinning, whirling, leaving me behind. I can't get off, I can only wait. Wait and hope it will all end.
Once a lie, always a lie though you may not grieve. It may fade and drain away, but will never truely leave. And true the world might forget, but there are those who know.
While your young, your told to live a certian way People teach you how to talk, what to say Everyone looks, judgement in there eyes. People talk, but all you hear are lies. Noone can tell you who you are,
A facade I hide behindBehind a happy personIs a voice wish to speakA way for to let it outIs through a writing verse
I took to the clouds The coulds had some truth to them, more than in people.
Flowers bloom red across the crimson water flow A ripped and torn dream hidden behind hallucinations
Long sleeves in mid summer. Always trying to trick the others. Covering up what The Cat has done, man many people are dumb. Walkin around in a daze. Putting fake smiles on your face,
He is winter. He is the excitement that takes over. His eyes are snowflakes, drifting in the wind, carpeting the land in a cloak of white. His lips are the colors only shown by the setting sun, colors of pink.
Truth, or lies? Beautiful eyes Hide the pain. Scars and marks, In the dark Is her world. Dripping red, The girl is dead, And yet she cries.
Breathe in Smoke Incense
The belief of who you were is as irrelevant as crayons to dog food,
I am trying so hard not to say soft thingsbecause I am strongand distantand do not have tender feelings.Because you hurt me and I,I am far too powerful for that.
Behind my mask I hide far from eveythig just out of judgement's reach just out of presure's sight jus out of pain's grasp just out of stress's glimps Behid my mask I hide keeping hiddden
Round 1: You ask your parents how they feel about gay people "trash" "freaks" "sinners"
You don't know meI'm not the person you think I am
I envy those that shine in the light, Those who aren't afraid to fight for who they are. For every time I think it's time, For every time I say that this moment, this one is surely mine,
I’m scared to tell you what’s going to happen, ‘Cause I’m not ready to let you go, I’m scared if I tell you, We might never grow, I’m scared to say “I love you”, ‘Cause it ain’t so,
We are blinded by lies by what we wanna see because when you open your eyes its nothing but chaos corrupting around you so you close them tight hope and pray throughout the night
See the smile, she presents so sweetly to the world. The gleaming of her happiness an etched mask to those strangers. No one can tell the wounds she bears beneath her covered skin,
My smile will not fade away; No, not until my dying day. I must stay strong For those who do not care. My heart is surely breaking, A wineglass dropped on the ground Without a second thought.
Wolves in sheep wool.they climb over walls and breach the inner sanctum.infiltration of the darkest depth in your ocean,your seas of troubles are seen and screened.the poor souls don’t even know.
Nothing I do can stop it Nothing I look in the mirror I smile I see what everyone else sees But the mirror lies Beneath it all That's where the demons lurk
Help me I'm caught in this thing Called life They tell you to live, but they Mean die They tell you to love, but they Mean lose
I lied to you when I said I love you,
Take them off! Take them off! Show us who you really are! Let us see Thy true face Thy true fears And thy true hates There's a nod from a performer A smirk from a magician
Don't think you can ignore me Walk out of the door and out of my life I looked up to you and thought of you twice To me you were everything, the reason I lived and breathed
The beautiful shine of your golden skin---It nearly blinds my eyes.Surrounded by a crown of golden leaves,
I have a past, we all do Some of it is lies, other things are true My grandma said I lied about rape My aunt said I was fake My church said I was a mistake My friends said they needed a break
I remember the first time I saw you
Lies taste so sweetThe smell lin
I love to read I CAN'T READ
This poem is directed towards my eldest brother... who has been on a heavy drug addiction for the past year. He has a 5 year old son who he barely sees and has got himself in a lot of trouble with the law. Hour Glass of Tracks
Riddling lines of pointless shriftIs rare and deadly Trojan giftWhich cleaves the sense and spawns distressOffensive in its ugliness.
This cloak that drapes off my shoulders, It hides the truth that lies beneath. A power and strength that could move boulders, Is the same that tied an anchor around my feet. I have a mask that hides the true me,
Today is never ending-- the start of a new beginning. A story of characters without a home, A story of passionate love and burning hate, and fighting which always makes us feel great
That which prevents me from showing who I truly am,
Pay no attention to the girl behind the curtainCuz boy I am certainYou'll have a little more interest in the one who's out flirtin'That twitch of her hips, you want her so bad it's hurtin'
People tell you to speak your mind, but not to be rude. They do not want to hear lies, but say they want the truth. Honesty comes off as being rude, the truth comes off as being too blunt.
Beating. Thumping. The sound of a heavy heart, GUILTY! Running. Sprinting. Being chased by your consicence, SHAMEFUL! Hiding. Sneaking. Conceling the disgrace. LYING!
Of course I am fine, why do you ask? Oh do not mind this, it is just my mask. Always plastered with a smile with no woe nor a care. I feel as if I am alone in this world, it is something I cannot bare.
When I was
Regret and Anger tries to take hold. Pain and Sorrow leaves me cold. I feel it deep within, a storm breaking thru, trying to take control, of how I hate you. A heart you were given
Slam. I hear the sound of the door closing, turn to see the car driving away, and with it, everything i've ever known in life. Comfort, gone. Security, gone.
I just have to realize, you have no ratoinal thought. I just have to realize, you've learned what you've been taught. Your lies flow out of your mouth, like water in a stream.
Anything to get my money they did, I guess telling the truth is forbid, This place was clean the last time I was here, Now I look around and say “Oh dear,” I thought there was 60% diversity in this place,
The old and the brokenAre out-spoken though never heardNo one sees they're out-goin'When they're un-brokenAre they old and broken?Or are they young and miss-spoken?
Looks reared you in, but my personality didn't.Except that personality just isn't.At least not entirely.You walked by discreetly.Did you even notice me ?
at first, you were just a bottle with a dirty orange tinted liquid inside you
at first, you were just a bottle with a dirty orange tinted liquid inside you
I am the forbidden fruit, he told me If I was not forbidden, I’d be all his I tempt him, he tempts me We have a pattern of love and hate
Forget Me Not *controversial* Morning sickness brings the blues, Monthly cycle is overdue. She was drunk that night, Flinging morals in the wind,
I'm the man in the sky I watch you with my hazy eyes Take my hand I'll set you free Step into my reality Here there ain't a ceilin' with walls
The spider spins it's silky web. Small silvery strands sparkle and something stuck struggles. Like my life, full of lies. Little lies linking along, leaving very little truth.
You can find me where the dust sparkles in the window from the sun's rays You can find me- there I'll be hiding beside the curtain blending into the wall
I cry from time to time I don't let myself have these feelings until I'm alone
the indestructable girl
The pretty stories you tell.
I've become numb from the amount of times I've heard the lies
Wake up! The sound of your mother yelling your name as you smell the fresh coffee being cooked. So you while you’re getting dressed and doing your making up listening to music you hear beep beep a sound I set on as an alarm for Facebook.
Woke up this morning the sky was clear I was thinking about my whole high school career
Why am I nor happy? I have such a big porch for me alone. I have the life that no one else owns. I have gold that no other holds. Why am I not happy? I have all I want, But something stands.
A short Poem by Stephen Strausbaugh Lie, Steal, Blame, Kill You look down at us atop of your hill Writing bills, but seeking thrills Only you have a license to kill Only you have a license to kill
One of my old poems: Sometimes I feel like a puppet, Pulled along in another's hands Obeying the orders to do this or do that My every rebellion already orchestrated
We are nothing. They say we’re free. It’s just an illusion. Others believe it, but I refuse. These standards, these rules
I can't see a world with out you , But then again I can't see I'm blinded by your love, my insecurities.
In my feelings I want to scream. I want to cry. I want to yell at the sky. It hurts. Why does it hurt me and not affect you?
Like a puppet with ripped strings I hang limp from a tree that is rooted in bad seeds. I have no direction and no recollection of anything but the present. Everything else is blocked out and I always want to shout.
Here I am, the real me, I promise myself not to say these things, To keep to my old pretty lies, but the fire of our love burns inside,
So many thoughts running through her mind... So many questions, assumptions of why all of this happened Her heart can only take so much pain, yet she doesn’t understand why she can kill it already.
Is it because me and my gurl dropped out Our sophmore year of high school, for becoming 16 yr. parents? Was it us taking that risk? Or was it life we decided to miss?
I am living but I'm not alive Everynight I let myslef cry I go to sleep hoping to never wake up I am living but I'm not alive I've gone through things and I wish I died I wake up but I'm still dead
chained to stone, to these pillars i know as home withered by time and awaiting to claim what's mine angered by the visions of shame. unleash the beast that resides inside undo my chains that i carry in my mind
I must defeat this horrible pain because in my heart it is a stain I despise this whole it gets wider and wider my veins spring out, like the legs of a spider it sucks in all the truth in my heart
If Winter only taught me one thing, it would be how to not respond when life calls for me. Winter told me to ignore it, when my best friend called and pleaded for my involvement
I thought he was intangible He's fragile He is frozen in time He's scared He is now going slow motion in reverse His words are misguided They tear everything apart He battles his secrets
Because it is vulnerable, an option, you might see. Wide out in the open, entire visibility.
Kindness, is it only but a word? A person who hears people's needs. But oddly, sadly, is never ever heard.
You try your best to see the light. In a blinding sheet of darkness. You ignore and try to forget.
My images were distorted, a played out fiction book of torn pages and darken memories. A scripture that I will never forget,
I’ve lied to myself. Twisted words and flipped meanings inside out Stared at NO long enough until I squeezed the yes out of it Like the end of drink In the sticky heat of the summer
"Why must love feel like a heart attack"?Some may sayCausing our hearts to sputter one final beatThump, thump, shhDifferent types of love lause different types
As I lie here on my bed, I can't help but think of all the lies I've been fed.
Honesty is honestly a rare commodity.
I don’t want to be abandoned
What I Hate Do you know what I absolutely hate? What makes me so sick to my stomach? And my skin crawl with repulsion? I’ll tell you what I hate:
Another day, another way,
I am holding a bladeUp to my wrist In the knife all I see is lies upon liesBut then I see youAnd your little blue eyesYou say put the kinfe down AuntieOr I will crySo I put down the kinfe
I down another bottle To wash the pain away. For a brief moment, I feel a bit okay.
Doomed I remember the old days, when the world was on the brink of war,
You string me up like I'm something special.
You sit upon that throne of lies, Yet everyone believes not me, But you. When you speak, I close my eyes, Holding on to the truth. The words you say are not really mine,
So we started this for it to end?
Away, away I will not come back, remind me, yes remind me of sin and wrong remind me of why red so satisfied. Confuse you? That is the point.
I can be whatever I want to be-That is, except myself.
Give me a hero and I'll show you his sin. Show me a victor, I'll explain why he can't win. Present a success, And I'll unveil the flaws. Show me innocence, And you'll be scratched with hidden claws.
From dawn 'till dusk I am enclosed, In my own world yet so exposed. Passing by, a mere obsever, Using distance as my life's preserver. Close enough to touch, too far away to see,
Mother, Now please do tell me, my tongue was meant for words, was it not? Remember when you said, "Do not lie or say dirty words, or I shall wash your tongue with soap" I was young then.
Leave me now And come no more. Many like you Have come before. They smile sweetly While telling lies, The devil hides Behind your beautiful eyes. You are not the first Who has tried. Many times now, I have cried.
No one ever says the truth
The girl screams wolf, And we all arrive, To find no dog but her reprise. She lazily asks for a cup of tea, Ungrateful in our company. So we turn away to our own lives, Warning her not to spout lies.
The world in a perpetual state of distraction;
It is 2 A.M. on Friday morning. The world is asleep while I lay restless
Don’t mind me I’m really ok I just don’t want to be awake All I ever do is make mistakes Don’t find me I’m running away I just don’t want to be Someone like me
I’m tired, So tired. Someone please let me sleep. I’ve been wandering for so long, Traveling through this vast desert. There’s nothing in sight No oasis like they claim,
Honesty is all I would change maybe if we all could be genuine love would not be in vain if I could change the roles of honesty maybe a liar would feel the victims pain He lied to me that's why I feel this way
It's completely natural to me, Like I've done it all my life, It helps to take away the pain, The way they treat me is wrong, It helps to take it all away, It helps relieve the stress,
Fear is what keeps you up in the night, the noises the knocks the sounds.
A night to remember, a spin and a glideas we make our way through the aisle.I was too young when you left my side.
Love a shadow Gray in vigor Gold in prime Gone as all Given in gifts An endless friend
The infinite love Till death do us part The raging war Of the head and of the heart Words never spoken Feelings never sought The build up of this dangerous thought
Hollow Ghost of Red Heart Ominous with frantic rage Yet vindictive under the Vail Luminous as starlight nights
Steel rafts of ocean hands Pearl into icy depths Piercing through its smooth skin Breaking the shocks of energy Through thick blue
Breathing Just Fine Held under water Gazing upon him We fight for a way out The sea blue runs black
Freedom isn’t free, a government system,
in this world filled with hate you have managed to take the bait heaven in and out of hell some love is gentle and filled with sweets while others are brutal that threaten to beat
Humans are such liars. We talk about how much we want honesty among us, but then we turn around and lie to the very same people we told that to.
Homeless individuals sleep with dreams of what they used to be Now they have moved on leaving the new generation drowning sea to sea No education, no temptation, to get a dream fulfilled
The time has come, my choice is made This life is cruel and humanity has no hope
kiss my petal-pink lips hold My tinny hands stroke my porcelain cheek if you only knew not every doll is a sweet little Girl ;
One: The one lie that everyone gets fed from the moment they are born to the moment they die is the one th
It's strange. I feel so detatched from this.From these people. A part of me is afraid that I don't belong here.Like I'm not one of them. I feel...a lot. But somedays....
Nonstop waste of breath Continuous packs of lies Searching for a fool
It is strange that I had never touched a cigarette until I had remembered how the taste would linger in my mouth after I had kissed you?
Look. Breath catching Ducking behind corners Hiding from something Too much to admit There. Its not your fault, not a bit But I'm so scared I don't sound like myself
They Offer No Absolution If we’re born sick But we love it, Will we ever change? If we wanted to confess our sins Without fear Of them sharpening knives To cause pain
I try to find myself, but I've been lost for forever. It's like I'm going in a circle so you'd think I'd know better. I'm somewhat lost in a trance, I can't find myself. Took 34 pills disregarding my own health.
The strength of those who know of how you cannot harm anyone for long. How can such a short trial, be of much harm? When they will know how you can never last for long. Life is
Eyes swelled up with tears, As i said goodbye to YESTERDAY. The promise of romance drowning in the ocean of my heart.
"I'm fine." The words ring out I wish to believe it Yet in the face that spoke I see only doubt Why be fine when you're not? Be sad and I'll cry too
i'm sixteen years old, and it's nothing like they said it would bethere are no wild parties and fun hangouts,only excuses for people to get fucked up and shit-faced.
I lost my father at the age of fourteen,
Fear hinders our progress towards better times where we need not be alone, it suffocates lights and welcomes darkness into our mind's own home. Fear grips the souls of men in a way no human can,
Love is rich sometimes its a bitch or a witch that cast a spell that makes you twitch untill you cant take another inch , away from the girl that first said hey that would later on say
am i okay?yes, im fine. inside me, the demons are screaming and tearing at my soul but im fine. feelings of hopelessness and fear and anxiety are building up like briks but im fine
God’s tears rain from the heavens as the innocent confess Others are surrounded by the Devil’s hatred Blanketing them in villainous greed A tyranny that little can escape
Why is it that we allow ourselves to suffer? Day by Day we walk around, fake smiles plasered to our faces, bracelets to hide the cuts, makeup to hide the bruises.
Acceptance is what I choose to need. To get away from my misery. I trust those who hurt and love those who use me.
Acceptance is what I choose to need. To get away from my misery. I trust those who hurt and love those who use me.
You lie You decieve You misguide And what will that relieve?
I frequently think of why i belong here, yes on Earth. What is the purpose of our lives?
It takes a while for something to grow, but once it does it begins to blossom, nothing will get in the way of stopping it.
People say Love all around
All is a fake disguise And I have no allies Alone for all my life Stuck in an eternal strife The world wears a mask To remove it is my task Don't try to stop me I hope you will see
A young maiden desperate for desire A cruel pathological liar Deep down she's lost and afraid Becoming the monster her dad made No where to look no where to turn Where's the love this young girl yearns?
I'm afraid to confess I'm still heartbroken.
He asked me where my home was
brown eyes as bright as a star
She thinks it's ugly,
I look up to cry the tears of the sky, The gray pasture covering me in its familiar cold I am crushed under the weight. People would say to me, Stand up, you’re fine. And I would try, Oh how I would try.
I feel tears trying to come out of my eyes
Needle in a haystackI am the needle
say you love me once or twcie
As it arrives everything diesThe leaves change colorNature's beauty diesBut one true beauty remains in galore
It is hard to see Through the web I have woven
Pain like Fire This pain I’m feeling, is unlike anything I’ve ever felt, Lost, Confused, Heart broken, it’s an everlasting nightmare. This pain I’m feeling,
Regardless of your innermost thought,
Darkness floods you veins,Your eyes have become reflecting pools,Black like dreamless sleep,You ache for the affection,
I want to fall into you,Like butter on warm toast,Snow on a summer day,The fragrance of a slow cooked roast.
FOOD FOOD FOOD Every ravenous soul cries for What is food at all? Is it Satisfaction...? Or a remedy to survival...think about it - I see food as Cruel, Enemy, Evil, Vicious...
When love gets a little easier Maybe I'll be able to say hello and not have my eyes rain Maybe the tulips will finally bloom properly and maybe the dandelions will finally blow in my direction and cover my face with their wishes
One step out the door Come back!!! I can't do that, I've gone to far. I've stepped into deeper waters and I'm drowing. I've dug my own grave and the world is slowly closing in. You can't do this!
I live to see the sunshine, brighter than the green on pine I live to see the rain, gloomy and forever a pain I live to eat, stuffing my mouth whereever I find a seat I live to drink, only to end up in the kitchen sink
I never thought it would hurt that much,
Heartbreak is not something that is easy to take For it clouds the mind and causes the esteem to effortlessly break Hours upon hours are spent of you picking up the pieces
Lies surround me in a thick fog Suffocating my words Clouding my thoughts Things of true value can't be bought But materialism and dishonesty is all we've been taught They put our souls on the stand
If I lose myself, if I remove myself
And it's funny, How the pot's always calling the kettle black, Funny the hypocrisy, When you say, "I'd never do something like that," Funny how similar So many seemingly separate people can be,
You fill me up Then drink I am your partner during dark nights And your enemy Once you've had your fun And had your fill You leave me on the table And go to enjoy life's thrill
Im hurt & i'm in pain,You still act the same,
A pained existence Fear creates wounds Fear is agony Fear has become pain Pain that is as intense as a woman screaming into the night Because fear is the room she has been trapped in.
I want you to say no, I want you to reject me.I want you to say yes, I want you to want me. Anything but this, stuck blinded in the midst,no sense of direction,struggling to contain my affection.
If tomorrow I didn’t wake up and I died,how many of you would cry?How many of you would sigh,and just move on with your lives?No pain trapped inside,just another body without life.No priest to confide,
I am sensitive, More delicate than a Bleeding Heart. Ice cold criticism is my demise. I resort to witty remarks before lashing out as my last defense.
It all started with the right hook A shock thru the spine Redirecting the foot Trembling in the knee and signaling for the left hook 1,2,3,4 Remembering the days her eyes was a beacon of hope
I never really feared anything. But As I sit here in my room filled with fear, I feel all the screams and anger from downstairs They shoot up my spine and over-take my body
I sit alone,trying to talk to you,but you dont want to talk,you never do,you only have one thing on your mind,its always that one thing.Dont you care about me?What about me?
a stage, one lovely place, act to your heart's content and there below crowds of people all await your very act.in life the truth scares me but
How fleeting Truth is. If only words could be smelled. Then liars would stink.
He is gone forever, the boy named Alex. The seraphs come down beside me singing really taunting, " He who you call brother is with us."
This damaged girl coming from a broken home, no hope left leaving it all torn, Not a single soul for help in times of discord, What happened to all the love and care from her supposed friends?
She always comes & goes. It is better to leave, before she is left. She always comes & goes. She leaves before she is left. The friends she makes, Are kept for years –
We kissed, I felt her lips connect as if we were one, and yet I wanted more. I could not resist her, her looks of pleasant torture, and warmest of the body. Long ago, her beauty vanished, and left there was nothing but hate.
I live in a time Where people have many walls. I also live in a time Where people desire to overcome these walls In any way possible. They have walls of anger and spite Inside their body and mind.
It's a raging battle inside of me
I had two crayons. Black and white they were labeled.
the waves in the ocean flow through the open holes in my heart hoping someday this time i can finally see the end of this shining light
Sometimes we lie. No one is truly perfect
Because if you are to love me there are some things you must know for one i am broken and hurt and my view on love is blown I have to start from scratch and learn how to love again
There sat a boy in class with me, with red Beats that hung around his neck, he'd never take notes in class,

Life's Masquerade By: Linda Oostendorp
All the cliques laugh away While I sit and watch Wondering where my friends are Wondering where you are Wondering why distance keeps us apart. The teachers will lecture
I hate the way you look at me

She closes her eyes and sees nothing.
and you sat complacently back arched, head tilted i slinked behind you, grazed you with my fingers i could see the trichomes on the nape of your neck stand up in uniform silence; electrocuted soldiers
I will make promises,
Love is something I don't understand.Hell, I don't think anyone does.When you say "I love you."And they say "Don't."How do you expect me to changeThe way I feel about youIt's not much of a choice.
Put death to the thought of my own thoughtlessness; succumb to the enthralling promises, but sink into a trembling demise. You are touched and prodded, molded and stretched. You are something that you’re not.
Kiss my lips and empty me, love me long and set me free. I'll give you it all, even me. Or crush me quick and leave me be. Our love is strong..in harmony Love is only temprary.

Society killed the teenager. What did we expect? That the words would roll off their shoulders? No responsibility to collect? Society killed her. They said she wasn’t pretty enough.
A year ago, she was enough trouble. This year, her bad deeds have doubled. With support, she called me something I’m not—her boyfriend. I bet she will trouble me to school’s end. Someone must put an end to her lies—
you cradled my round head to your strong chest when I was new to the game of life you wiped fat tears from my cheeks when I was in the same boat of emotion as Picasso and his blue phase
The first week of high school is always a bore,with syllabi and “getting to know you” quizzes, and “tips for surviving” lore.
I could always jump, you'd find my body in a dump. Body broken like my soul, for its spirit no longer could hold. I could always cry, sometimes wishing I could die.
The world as she knows it comes to an end.The pain, the suffering, the life of my best friend.Her soft fluffy body so frail and so depleted,I can't help but to think that her life wasn't completed.
Follow me Through this dance of conformity Copy my movements Add them to your list of improvements Your sickness cannot frighten me away Acceptance is child’s play I’ll give you the antidote
I remember like it was yesterday that we talked, joked, and laughed and now that you are not here that is all in the past I can see clear as day a smile spreading across your face
You want me to admit when I'm wrong, But you never do You say it's not right to lie, But you lie all the time You tell me to stop being gloomy But you're angry all the time
The days I spent living my life in the shadow of another are wasted. Why must I skulk in the shadows while you get to walk in the light? Is it possible that perhaps I was never meant to be seen, to be noticed?

I feel fine...
I am a girl of love, Compassion and trust, Most of all I'm a girl of opinion. And if you don't like it, I suppose you're pretty opinionated yourself.
What if the truth, was really a lie? What would you say, if I told you that's what I live by? The lies are only there, there to hide the pain, the sorrow, the sad, the everything.
I tried to write in a smile, but it ended up a frown, I tried to write it upside right, But it ended up upside down. I tried to write it in like summer, but it ended up so cold.
I counted to ten, I'm done! Where are you? I can't find you... Will you come out soon? I miss seeing you, Hearing your voice. I miss being with you, Hiding wasn't your choice.
I played along like it was nothing, a crush that wouldn't last. I never knew you felt the same, we could've skipped the pain of the past. I denied the accusations, But I knew I loved you from the start.
Eyes can be deceiving and yours fooled mine I thought I knew everything, but I guess I was blind I was very naïve to believe you really loved me and I was stupid enough to let it drag on
Sick and tired of playing the victim;I have shown myself to be unconquerable.Though my pace has been slowed, I'll never give in,I am unstoppable.Because through all the pain,the heartache, and the tears,
There is a great and terrible feeling behind manipulating people. The feeling of power sinks into your skin, as you make up a story on the spot, and watch as it then becomes part of their reality.

To trust in me is to trust in you, what you don't understand is that I'm broken in two, wondering if I will get hurt and what will I do, see my life is a lie, I dont even trust the flies,
I can't be pushed around anymore that was the last time that I will take your crap You used me like a ragdoll when I thought I was your friend You thought it would be fun to mess with my mind
People stand behind me Supporting me Cheering me on They're my closest friends In front of me Are my enemies I know they hate me Their faces filled with disgust
The day is waiting here it comes. Don't feed me the lies you love so much. Just leave me to run with my fears. The tears are coming, False friends dying, You never feel strong enough

I’d treat you like a queen, but what does it mean? Not a thing, cause I’m new, and you want the old You tell me nothing even matters, you lie to me Warmth of your touch… yes, your lie's so bold
If there were no rainbows, we would not have people quoting that thing that people say, when they don’t know how to help you but want you to cheer up- “everybody wants to be happy,
I dream of magic and dragons and fairy tales, where there are women in vintage long dresses and men in chainmails. The fairies are dancing in the moonlight, and pixies are hiding just out of your sight.
I was doing just fine in this cold world Why did you come along? To maybe throw me for a loop? Silly girl I was Why did I not trust myself? Instincts tell me stop, turn around
Lies why are there so many. They devour they surround me .I'm trying to break free but they're chained locked on to me . Everytime I'm at ease they're tugging at my shirt like a little child begging for attention .
Her doleful eyes pierced his silhouetteThe mind, pushing back his tearsleft his heart unguardedAs lies escaped his breathso did their security
There are cuts on my wrists because I never thought I'd become this: Another broken heart just one more forgotten kiss.
A trip at the end of June. One of those yellow summers muttered with new tales and new hormones - Of gold and silver highlights - Of diamonds and tampered addictions. A flight quick as liftoff.
I always thought You were my diamond In a pile of coals. But just a wolf hiding in sheep skin; you devoured my heart there it sits - Pulsing red and bleeding out your lies.
hope Is it the only thing able to change everything for the better? Is it the only thing that is able to change people? Is it what drives people to keep going despite the odds againt them?
I will never look at you the same ever again. What you did to me, I will never understand. How dare you ever tell me you adore me! When now all you ever do is ignore me. I don’t understand how I could change your mind.
When the morning arises and the city blooms a flower Rooted deep in the heart of man It spreads grotesquely in the light of the brightest sun Urging forward the time for murder and creation
Honesty Is not a virtue that will get you anywhere Deception Now, that is the truth for which I care A man born mortal is a man who lies
It's a road that leads to ruins. "Don't go down it!" screams your head, but your heart will tumble down it anyway. My rib cage is in dissarray with all the swelling lies I tried to swallow.

Through my mind run many Lines strike across the sky like Shooting stars fade quickly to Blackness runs across Pages fill with dark Ink can capture the Light refracts through a
Clockwork heart. Wind it up and off it goes. Don't get too close, or it might explode. Dormant, it lies, therefore unscathed. It one was new, pure, whole, expectant.

She walked along the reeds by day, Trails of silks and treasure troves around her like clay, Her heart a Pandora’s Box as she bows her head to pray, God forsake her if she stay, Her tale, a common witch’s say,
I grew up amongst the golden turfs and extensive rows of olive, Where songs of contentment and love were played, Where mothers and fathers cared for their young,
I thought you were the victim Crying behind the hands that shielded your eyes Wondering exactly why I gave into your lies Trust Something we were supposed to have
I, who was born from the particles of life, like you. A breath into form which I walk and I sing and I rejoice with you. All in pleasure soft flesh contained, But how hasted with quick flash
How do I confess to love so deep? When it may hurt those I want to keep, A secret so direr, To hide my desire, How do I come clean? How do i stay true? When i only told few ,
"Everything will be all right," He says as she sobs into his shirt, Her tiny hand clutches the fabric. Between sobs he pats her back: rocks her, Back and forth. Back and forth.
The lies that they feed to these innocent ears They are changing the world from the days to the years And it’s not right
Nations that grow weeds Fall, but buds grow back again, And they bloom once more.
I was asked today if I was okay. When asked that what do i say? Say yes? and lie, Say no and explain why?, which is worse? Lie to someone and feel the guilt,
I lie awake. The whirring fan- A broken heart Caused by my own hand. Awake. A train horn sighs. A numb brain. I hate the blackened sky. The man in the moon laughs
They fill us up with lies They pull down the blinds And are the cause Of our sad demise These voices and their venom Slowly poison us to death And in time we become
Best Friends my ass.
Depressing to see 12 year olds saying they're in love. The silence in others make you think of your own. Breaking promises and making lies look true. Waking up somewhere you don't belong. Looking outside the window,
I'm on my ownYou never loved meNow I pay the consequencesAnd you just walk away I messed upI fell for youI never had a chance
It hadn’t troubled her at first She knew early enough that fairy tales Were for those who could afford to dream them After all she’d been stepping in The shattered remains of her glass slippers
You’re a twisted lying creature, On my world you’re just an ugly feature. I trusted you and gave you my heart, And you tortured it and tore it apart. You simply walked away, I almost died that day.
As life goes on, we dwindle away, From fighting and lying, everyday. We place ourselves to lose the race, By putting ourselves in a never-ending chase: To be the best To be number one

Every human has a different purpose, so do all the plants and the animals too. My question is, why everyone tells us, we can do anything we want to do? I think to myself and I can make a list,

Can I tell you a secret? I still want him back. After all this time, I still have things to tell him. I always told him I hated the mountains, But I lied. I love them deeply, passionately, like he did.
I saw her today for the first time She seemed like she had existed for quite a while Her face always a smile, a laugh on her tongue
The lie they told spread like wildfire, burning precious truth in its flames. All too soon it found its spot upon my doorstep. Careless control, I saw its destruction:
Nowadays, it’s hard to know what the truth is. We have tampered with so much as seen Our environment, plants, animals and even our bodies that We are oblivious to what is real, what is true
They said! I left them memories, I left them warmth from the cold, Thoughts running through their heads,
The devil sits beside me, undresses from his clothes Says he wants to love me, the only love I've ever known. He kisses with his lips, but doesn't mean it in his eyes The only thing he loves
I sit here and wonder why I feel so alone in this starless sky We sit together united But I still feel likethis future we have is near-sighted Can't you see that there's so much more than me?
Such a hateful gaze with a force to amaze but not for the good but for the unobeyed no one listens no one cares you all just sit and stare at the blank walls with all your blank cares no one lives
Its sad to live in a world where you can break people with words Its sad to live in a world where you can die thrice in a day we all live in the world and say "look at the bright side"

Life is what you make of things They say you take the good with the bad They say that life is full of wonders That there is something waiting for you at the end of the long road
Knees in three inches of proximity yet you're still not close to me We speak but it's as if I can't hear your words Because the emotion is drained out of them and suppressed under that organ in your chest
I listen to the sound of your footsteps And the floorboards creak with your motions The same old rickety ebony that’s held us up for the past 5 years Never once complaining as out footsteps left imprints on its back
Y Many times I ask myself How and Why How did I let you in, Y did I let you leave ME. was it Me? or U? or who? was I at fault? At the end of the day,
In a field full of dandelions, you grab me and say "love me or love me not", you throw a long stemmed flower at me and questionably ask "lets see!?". As I pick through the petals and I jokingly shout "love you not!!",
I always remember the days when I kissed you and all the times we hung out because those are the memories I don't want to forget. Today I was walking through school and I saw you with him. So in love even though he doesn't love you the way I do.

Why do you? Like me, I mean. You are the second, who told me "I love you." But you are the first, whom I actually believe.
As the days go on and the nights go by I can’t think of anything else to do, So I sit here and cry.

Poor kid, Leave me alone. Leave the animosity from your personal experiences away from me. See I haven't done anything to you.
A reason to exist Bernard Etienne

"Sticks and stones may break my bones", but words have more power than the biggest army. With each break, bones heal stronger, but internal wounds never will. Although they try. Just before they are mended,

No one knows how I feel No one knows what I want They laugh and laugh As if they don't care
The effects of a past riddled with bullets; empty shells, empty lies, hit the pavement, resounding with the weight of all lies past. You can't tell me, with all of these wounds, parts of us didn't die.
I open the door and I see her standing there. I look into her eyes, and it makes me want to cry. Seeing her standing there, staring with her vicious glare. I can’t believe I used to say that girl with her vicious glare
How many times do you live to tell a lie to hurt me just a little and to see me shed a cry How many times do you live to see the day the day that hurts me more and more in every little way
She walks by and I see your eyes drift away from me, As if our conversation means nothing at all, On a different day I would let it be; I knew it was always for you I would fall. So I sit here and wonder in my head,
Believe in me to bathe in lava. Trust that I will do no wrong. If you wish, I'll fly a kite to Mars. I will give you love wrapped in stars.
I wish I could see the light, But that's a struggle, a fight. The past has made me stronger Indeed, I shall live longer
Today I saw Sunshine in the clouds, The kind that makes me happy. Today I saw Sunshine in the sky, The kind that makes me cry. Today I saw Sunshine in the dark, The kind that makes me sway.

The word LOVE flys freely as a bird. The word LOVE isn't given the respect it deserves. Why shall we find it okay to remain confused, between LOVE and Lust, LOVE and Fascination.
Shall I compare thee to a siren? Thou art more seductive and charming. With a song that is a melodic sin, And beauty seen best in spring. Sometimes a man strides through,
I hope to see your smiling face, to see the touch of fath. but in your hands my hope is dead, to cold to hear thy voice. I cry and scream to hear the hope, but only to be deined.
Drops of golden, wasted space Pressed upon a solid face. Windswept strands of faded truth Blown across the palms of youth. Cautioned, never came to phase, Wearing starlit, glassy haze.
The world is a empty place Full of hate and disgrace Full of so many lies A place with no allies Everyone seeks the truth But it's broken and bruised Little white lies Surround our daily lives
Torn, tattered, tantalized; Illuminating darkness fills your eyes. Emotion fueled from burning lies, The truth covered with a convincing disguise
A chance on success A chance on failure A chance on life A chance on friendship Take me or leave me Love me or Hate me Don't try to make me feel less if I don't fit inside of your "box"

Do you recognize your own lines, or do you turn a blind eye to lies that deceived me...if you're going to be an ass, at least be an honest ass.
They make fun of me. Things I do and say. Is this their way Of killing those who are unworthy? Who doesn't deserve to be happy? Those of us who stray From “normal”, live with an array
They talk, they hide in fear of me. They fear that I will find their whisper, Seek their faults, shout no surrender, Until their gossip, dead and lonely, be And until then, I wait and see
Ladies and Gentlemen, Sit in your seats, For you are about to read a great play, Of nothing but deceit: We push the people we don’t understand, We drown in our sorrows, Yet extend our helping hand,
He said he loved me He said that he cared He said he would love me more than could ever share But he hit me then and I found the cold truth that our love was not there and there was no truce
The man proclaimed he was a genius: they scoffed and asked for proof. He looked them straight in both their eyes, said: "Sirs, the first from you."
Through my eyes Your see the fear and pain. A very negative pain that could hurt for life, With nothing more than hate for you.
The sting of reality is realized As the reality of the real intensifies And the hidden no longer is fantasized As I uncover your habitual lies.
Thoughtless actions win, Losing myself to darkness, My past never leaves.
I live in a place where talk is cheap. Three cents a rumor and scandal comes free. Daily dish for a penny, spilled beans are on sale. Discount subscriptions for The Juicy Detail. Tragedies, pregnancies at huge blow out prices!
All is transparent I see every truth and lie Ignorant am I?
Like bitter flies that buzz annoying atrociousness near your ears and eyes Stinging and slapping with every word, a crooked whip Every tongue is indeed a bit twisted, hiding truth in false disguise
once lost, it disappears, it vanishes. it disintegrates into nothing, it's absence leaving a void that can never be replaced.
When you think all is right and nothing can go wrong Life tests you again to see where you are most strong
You call me son. I call you by name. The things you have done You should be ashamed. You say you are a better man, You want me to see. My eyes are open To the man who stands before me.
I felt the frost on my tongue, because I was growing young and the sun didn't shine from the words I spoke. I kissed a flower as I smelled a delicate perfume and walked in a cold garden among a cold world.
Can I provide you with a rhyme to Help you vibe with me on this ride through my mind? May I coerce you into working with me to get to A special place where I can get to know you beyond the letters that form you're name
Liberty, who may define this subtle word, our governing persuaders, you or me? Surely one may elucidate Liberty as freedom, distant of a governed control, an empowerment of choice and thought, backed by moral notions. Is this claim too absurd?
Such little hands With little fingers Such small feet With little toes Sandy loves to play outside Sandy loves to sing as loud as she can Sandy loves to love things She loves pink and dresses
Every day we wait And wait, and wait Wait for our truth Our justice Our rights But they never come. Media purports them Politicians revoke them But the people never receive.
If I sang a tune of lies, would you be pleased? If I sang a sweet tune of lies, like a song hidden with darts and knives... I would have you all deceived.
You feel alone don't you? Your heart is aching with an unbearable pain. He hurt you. And he was the one you trusted most. He broke that and you are mad and upset.
Life, the gift of living, only gives one chance to get it right. "if" of the unexpected; "i" makes it mine; "L" symbolizes love, along with the lies;
My 35 millimeter could never quite catch the essence of your beauty Hidden rolls of film remain with nothing but your name See the two things i loved most both hid my inner most fears
Lets not talk about love, to watch her sleep but still feel such distance dont talk about love, to kiss her lips and feel resistance my soul cries when i look into her eyes like my eyes did when her lips sang to me lies
I cant find love, it seems hidden behind kisses that take your breath away behind hand holding and sweet smiles I cant find love, it only consists of the first few weeks of infatuation
A yell, a hit, a tear. Sounds echo in my thoughts Why am I ignorant? Why do I lie? I dream; I don’t remember Well it's nothing new, Nothing to shake the rattles in the mind
broken promises of impure lies. words forgotten lost in the mind. thoughts of feeling disappeared into darkness. wounds of pain bleeding internally. replacement never ending
Outside lives a guy with a smile that will brighten up the room, yet inside hides a guy with a frown full of despair.
My mother’s embrace is my home and in her arms I am never alone. People attack me with words, words that pierce my soul like daggers. I am not fierce nor am I bold so I cannot help the tears that pour like rain as I am in pain.
The sun in the day, the moon at night, a sky littered with stars and clouds they hide behind. The trees, so tall, with leaves on their branches, which change their color and fall as summer passes.
I want to hear the truth I want to hear something besides your usual lies I want to hear the truth before what we have dies I want to experience reality Because things between us have been just a fantasy
Do not promise what you will fail to deliver Beautiful Hopes are crystallized shards of glass Fragile But when they break, a maiden will cry a river Promise Each vow: special; varies in size and shape
A king once sat upon his throne And made such choice to be alone For fear of love turned, taking ill But this choice strained beneath his will His loneliness forced silent moan
HOW MANY TIMES IT’S A SIMPLE QUESTION HOWEVER I ASK FREQUENTLY AND NEVER GET A CONFESSION. HOW MANY LIES? DO I LISTEN TO? MY MIND STARTS TO WANDER I KNOW EVERY WORD IS UNTRUE HOW MANY SMILES
