Now that I cometo think about itall my painful daysstart somewherein between July
If only he loved meit would all be good If only he kissed memy lips could melt again
I wish you were air so that I could breath you forever
I will disappear into the airthe trauma of the humansin the shadowsand the kiss of suicidePerhaps them won't even noticebut it won't matter None of this will matter because after all
As I write this,tears form inside my eyes my heart achesI'm in painyet I'm numb
I'm tired of the lies AND misconception Long to be held, seeking attention Covering up my discontentment I've ran out of makeup and forgotten how
Pain 
I'm sorry for blaming you For everything I just couldn't do And I hate myself by hurting you Feeling this hurt embrace me so beautiful I'm sorry for blaming you For everything I just couldn't do
As my eyes rain this cold, wet sorrow... My heart yearns for a better tomorrow To feel lips brushed against mine Gently pressed, one of a kind. Yes, the cold is trapped in my sweater
I hate that my heart yearns for you It will look for in the hallways of our overcrowded school It wants to give itself to you again Let you break me
On cold nights like these Where I’m happy with People in my lifeAnd without you in sight I can’t help but wonder How did you turn out
I’ve spent many days contemplating The words to say to you But the words are stuck in my throat Trying to escape   Day after day
I would like to thank My past love For the pain she put me through, And the healing I was forced into   For it was the healing, Stitching of the broken halves of my heart
It sucks that being in a relationship you have to give your everything   Your time, your will, your heart   You are left vulnerable and open  
Stare into the outside Neon lights and street signs She holds me It’s gonna be alright She said, but she fades Moonlight turns away
Pain   I trip and fall. I feel pain.   A crush tells me that he does not like me the same. I feel pain.   I get bullied and ostracized on the bus. I feel pain.  
Maybe you don't think of me much Or maybe you don't think much of me But when I take my mind for walks We end up sitting under aspen trees.
you were a rainbow so i too became one to please you yet you cut me so deeply i burst into a multitude of colour yet to you all i'll ever be is black and white
Somewhere along the way My heart just stopped The way your eyes sparkled Seems to be dull My heart saw something  beyond the eye   From then on I wanted to say hi
"Her name written in the moon between the stars, crossed out, covered up with several black ink marks. The tiny spark, the invisible pen, marks all you see but cannot read. That little hope, it still burns faint, the fire burns, always.
April 20, 2017. 12:41 am  
I fell in love at a bus stop I fell in love and came out on top I fell for him and it was my fault I fell in love at a bus stop   Across the rows I crossed alone More than hope
my friend’s funeral was a cloudy day. a joyous celebration of life. the clouds spoiled the ambiance, but the rain never came.  
Him
My smile shines at the sound of his name His chocolate eyes stared only at me But his reputation brought him his fame Why did his looks fill up my heart of glee?   His calm voice brought me home.
So she picked up her pencil  And wrote to the world about the Storm  that left her soaked in golden blood.   Must she be left in pieces  From the gentle winds Of the violent Storm?  
words scribbled across the page in an desparate manner as if the writer might just burst if they can’t release this display of a broken heart. a melody sings its song to a crowd of invisible listeners
My heart breaksEvery time you smileMy mind hazesEvery time you speakMy body numbs Every time you touch meMy soul leaves Every time you kiss me But
With careful cadence, ink steps on pages And rhythmically, words stride to our minds. They serve all the troubled of the ages,
With careful cadence, ink steps on pages And rhythmically, words stride to our minds. They serve all the troubled of the ages,
You have a beautiful smile, thats what you said. I laughed it off as just pretend. A month then passed and you were there, Right beside me combing my hair. Behind my ear in a loving way,
Bang, Bang. You Shot Me Down. You broke my heart and let me drown. You lost sight of what we had. You didnt care if it hurt so bad. We Fell In Love In A Hopeless Place.
When your heart breaks it oozes misery  and drips down to your stomach  where it knots and twists but you can only clench your fists
I fell in love with her on a Monday.
Here lies the time of which it commenced The days past as every sand Of the hourglass In a fell swoop of descending   If the cosmos were mine to mix And the beauties thereof, mine to possess
He told me I was becoming my mother.A statement that meant,I could do better.They said I look just like her.How the ocean floods my eyes when my heart, Catches on fire,From beating too fast.
Me
Wear my heart on my sleeves I tend to get my arms cut off. Take my kindness for weakness They see me as soft.
Makeshift my body Played all the parts Left me for better To which you depart   Stomped on my fortress Tainted by lies Cradled in darkness Lover despised
As the goosebumps carress my skin so strong, You stole my breath away; you king of thieves. The dulcet croon of love; you lure me with song.
I come to see you during lunch My heart, in pain to much You open the door and you see Me, in all of my vulnerability But you don't bat an eye, much like the other guy You hug me, But not out of love
I once met a man who introduced me to the different sides of love.  He dyed his hair a different color every other week and bound his chest so that no one would question his authority.  
It's like a blade that never stops twisting in your heart. When you fall in love, you fear everything about them. Their very existence is your foundation. You love them so madly you're blinded by it.
feelings we disect, fail to digest. we're both so depressed. emotions repressed; show reason less. we scream and we shout; dont know what about. I saved this for us. you stressed me out.
Why won't you treat me like I'm perfect? Why won't you treat me like I'm worth it? You ripped my heart right out of my chest You did things to it that I never would've guessed Couples don't treat each other this way
Staring at the walls until 2 a.m.Praying this was a mistake,In the morning will it be too late?It was too late yesterday,  
Rejection. It hurts like a bitch. But sometimes rejection provides a greater picture to one's head. Rejection just makes me feel like I'm not worth love. Or happiness. Or even affection. And it's not the person who rejected me that hurts...
When a woman falls in love, she usually falls pretty hard. It's not that a tricky puzzle takes place of her heart. The goals, dreams, and visions for herself fall apart. 
As I gaze up into the moonlight I can finally wonder if you’re alright... If you were wishing you could hold me just as tight... See my heart was in recovery From a fraudulent lovers discovery
Dear Emotions, Why are you always here? When will you get enough? Dear Emotions,
Bad news bends me down Like snow icing a birch tree How much more can I take before I break?   Splintered into a thousand shards- I can't melt my heart anymore
Where do I begin? How do you tell a tale so weathered yet so fresh? So foreign yet familiar. Your palm that once warmed my thin fingers
My heart has been ripped apart by your words your seething lies I denied because my love for you made me blind. Where is the light? You laugh at me as your darkness chokes me smothers the light that I wish would come back.
he was a secret that I regret keeping locked away, deep inside my soul he stayed he shook hands with my fearshe befriended my pain
how funny it is that after three days of lying next to someone, sharing secrets, matching heartbeats, and pressing lips together, one can fall in the first stages of what may very well shape up to be love.
Ink
I believe in the power of ink, The power it brings to create something greatI believe in the power of paperThe power to convey things that you can’t speakI believe in the power of midnight thoughtsWhen sleep doesn’t come easily I believe in the po
Cloudy days won't pass by fast enough. Because my heart is broken and I'm yearning for your love Days feel like centuries since my baby up and left me. Now I'm greving, sad and filled with sorrow
Her heart was ice and It was breaking.. killing her. Slowly she is losing herself, by giving herself to him. The love she was giving him, he was giving to the other girl.
my past defines me, i am, the girl he keeps from his friends, a secret, not good enough, unheard
If I could ask for one more dayThat I could be yoursI’d bask in moments, the love, the security.the purity in our intentionsBefore we refused to speak what was unintentionally mentionedThe lies you’d cry
She, is a girl. With the prettiest face,  The curliest hair,  The shiniest skin,  The carefree persona   She is a Queen.
i spend my days now trying to forget your voice, the same voice that made the my skin stand tall, the same voice that told me everything would be okay,
I am slowly stepping instead of falling for her. I never learned how to love so instantly. This feeling is far from what I prefer.   She is like the seasons of winter and summer,

Our comet. It was a sign. As we sat there under the starry night sky, talking about life and our future together, it was a sign. The breeze was cool and the sky was clear and everything in the world seemed absolutely perfect.
Loving you was like;  running all the red lights Loving you was like being Rear-ended; going airborne through the windshield because a seatbelt didn’t feel mandatory  
I don't remember when I first heard the word I don't remember when I first knew what it meant I don't remember anyone telling me
I see you running through the rain   I know its a stretch Even for my fantastical childish dreams But I still can see it  
another relationship another breakup today, our one month anniversary  she breaks up with me after isolating herself for days blaming me not even trying to fix things
The promise he made to me about a hundred and one times, he broke. "I will never leave you baby girl," he said and where is he now? Only a shadow of a memory left for me to ponder in my head.
I didn’t want to believe in love, I thought it was like a drug, Something I can’t quit, Something that would split.   But you, my darling, You are too startling. The beauty, the wit,
Aren't best friends supposed to be with you till the end? I thought that to myself as I watched them turn their back. Deceiving is what it's called. Maturity is what they lack. I gave so many, so many chances Yet,
  my brain;  beating faster than my heart what do I use more? the absence of brain is obvious but how do i know when its my heart, thats beating is it smart to love a binding of humans,
I lost my best friend. One person I could tell everything to. One that would not judge or laugh at me. Now we have not talked... I lost my best friend in one day. Why did he leave me... Was I not good enough... Did he find someone better?
You were my present tense And supposedly my future tense Everything seemed fine Until errors were made Now all you ever are Is my past tense
Last night someone asked me, "Are you not interested in someone right now? Or even have someone to flirt with?" "Theres no one right now." I answered. They were dubious when they asked,
He's once again there, waiting, And hoping that somehow The fate would deem it worthy For them to make a vow.   And though it seems unsightly, And it is frowned upon,
my words have taken  a hiatus from mouth to pages ellipses dance. tell me how to stop this  ache. how do you function  when your lungs forget to inhale?
I can't live without you here My knees grow weak The demons coming near We now don't speak   I loved you so
No one understands why I love you. So, allow me to put it into words. You were the air I breathed, The blood that ran through my veins, The water in my cup.
My heart began to ache I felt my limbs shake I wanted to run I wanted to hide I sobbed And cried Then I began to write I knew it would be quite all right Poems taught me to grow
I wasn't ready for it, I wasn't searching for it  He held my hand, kissed my face  I felt the whole earth shake  The heart is shattering, the mind is fluttering 
Darling, I know I needed to decline. My betrayal is unforgivable. I’m unable to see the grand design. A life without you is unlivable.   Do not tell me our life has been a lie.
Come, my love, to arms, my knight, Come join me in our glorious fight.   The enemy's crawling up my skin,
I came home that night smelling of rain and cigarette smoke and teenage love so deep, set into my pores like the ink on my skin.  
i remember falling in love with you as if it happened yesterday we had only met but you made me feel things i swore i could never feel again
I have late night conversations with the moon  She tells me about the sun And I tell her about you  What we used to do underneath her other half  And during her time when we went our different paths 
A true love’s kiss, a myth yet every girl believes in the princess tale, Believing Cupid with his mighty arrow shoots accurately from his sail, Cuddles, first kisses, anniversaries ever so sweet,
I hate you I hate that you're beautiful I hate that I love you I hate how I hate you I love you I wish you would leave My dear please stay with me  Just for the night  Hold me close
Here I am, again, alone, Wondering what to do. Should I talk to myself? Or watch movies in lieu Of the time I wish I had To spend here with you. Here I am, again, alone, Wondering what to do.
Her heart seemed to of thudded against the floor I looked at her Her mouth agape and a string of blood Slowly drips from her mouth To the floor
the fracture in my soul is buried deep and my mind is cracking with it. eliciting such rage as the red flag waved in front of the gentle bull in a china shop.  the memory of your touch
Sunflower sunflower where have you gone Your sunlight extinguished from this earth Your dark pit of growth trembling , shaken to its core by the ferocity of seasons Sunflower sunflower where have you gone
When I told my friend that I liked a boy she was ecstatic. She gushed. She squealed. She urged me forward. When I told my friend he asked me out she screamed. She laughed. She yelled. She asked me when we were going out.
I absorbed you through my skin like oil you are stuck here in the lines of my fingerprint  burned into the corners of my mind im afraid to look into I hate the taste of you but you run through my veins like blood 
As I grew older I began to see my friends fall in love. I began to see them care for someone with a deeper passion than I have ever seen, And I began to see him feel the same way for her.
my heart aches at the knowledge that i’ve loved you for forever but forever is coming to an end.
The dagger in my heart, It twists, Alas, My love for you has only hurt me. I should have known better Than To fall in love with Nothing less than a prince Who saw himself as little more than a pig.
If I were to have just one wish, I'd wish for just one careful kiss Upon my lips-chapped though they be, Oh, Sorrow! That you can't love me.
HER
SHE WANTED THE WORLD IN HER HANDS TO RULE THE LAND AND SEA SHE WANTED THE WIND IN HER HAIR AS SHE SPED IN HER BENZ SHE ALMOST HAD IT ALL BUT THEN SHE MET HIM SHE FELL FOR HIM
YOU
RUN INTO MY ARMS KISS ME UNDER THE MOONLIGHT SPEND THE NIGHT WITH ME LOVE ME FOREVER I SAY YOU’RE MINE AND YOU SAY I’M YOURS BUT WHEN YOU HUG ME WHILE MY EYES ARE CLOSED
Is it over? This war that we have Is it over? Doesn't matter because you took my heart and threw it into a bulldozer   I don’t think I’ve ever been more sad
He tasted like mangosi couldn't place it until the next daywhen his lips were no longe
Get out of  my head.   Get out of my head because it's what's best for me. Get out of my head because it's what's best for you.  
  There are three cranberries left on the counter A reminder of us I can’t seem to wipe away It was different then When we first fell
A perfect bond. Conversations go on for hours with no effort Two passionate hearts  Telling one another "we will make it"    Through love                      Through faith Through patience 
When I have lied to myself and others for so long, It is hard to see who is wrong, We could lie to ourselves like we always do, But since I have had so much more pain to go through,
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
summer my soul shed its skin shell it got too big nowhere to go so it floats my personal cartoon rain cloud blue balloon and me
dear crush can you hear that? the sound of my heart breaking? breaking like claps each syllable you spoke to someone else
People always tell me, there's plenty of fish in the sea.But you just didn't get, that you were the only fish for me.All I ever did was love you...and I just wanted to let you know.
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 sunlight becomes the dark, I pray that you are the path That illuminates my heart.   When sunlight becomes the night, You are the shield I run to Behind your glorious sight.  
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
It's been one month since I was standing here last. With this wonderful man hosting. And a beautiful partner in the audience.   I had written a poem for them.
I remember Late nights with your skin against mine and our breath mingling in the small space between us. I remember
"Are you leaving?" she said. I informed that im to return soon. Her stare blanketed in dis-array, I inquired if something was needed. "Can you leave my heart on the table until you get back?"
My life consists of heartbreak, It's all made up of shit. Confusion is synonymous With life and life with it.  I hate to look in mirrors To see what's looking back: The sunken eyes, the fatty thighs,
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-
You told me you loved me You told me that you cared But what we did to sarah… I guess this is only fair   You always kept me hidden I thought you meant it when you said forever you didn’t 
He wrecked me Broke me down piece by piece Through our laughs Our love Our fights Our long nights Our pain Our joy Our hopes Our plans He destroyed each part of me
You look through a glass I know she’s on your mind you cry tears of spite yet your heart remains kind And you keep on wondering How a girl loved as she Would keep you expectant
Meeting you was like finding my favourite song, learning all the lyrics won't take very long. Your eyes had a fire, one I know I'd surely desire. A desire for you to take those gracious hands of yours,
MA
Honestly, what's the point of this game you play? When all you'd rather do is lay up and smoke all day You say over and over to let my guard down but when I finally do
The heart of a lover, eyes of a cheater. Stomach of the deprived, longing for a taste that is sweeter.   The smile of a friend,
Jaded.
Sacrifice.
Painting Greys
With this being our last moment together, whether or not you know it. I owe it to you to be as honest as possible, but that's impossible to do and not hurt you.
When I saw you last night you looked happy, joyful, even. When I saw you last night, I wanted to hug you because God you don't know how much I miss you. When I saw you last night every memory we made and every kiss we
tell me that you want a tree, an Apple Tree. the fruit you desire, it will produce but, if you, plant it first. the tree will give you many years but, if you, will give it drink.
Sometimes love finds you in your darkest place and signals you hope with a sign of light at the end of the tunnel But sometimes that approaching light is a speeding truck with a fatigued driver who's responses are slowing down
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.
Rejected Isolation Hurting more than it should Why did I get so attached? Please let me be Don't make me see your face Beautiful you Versus ugly me World shattering Heart aching
How are you so stupid, so naive? You brought this on yourself. Walked in a locked room with no keys. Don't bother blaming anyone else, Don't cry, beg, or plead. How do you expect to get out?
We were in love once, not long ago. You said that you could never let me go.   You kissed me with all of your energy Maybe that's why you set me free  
Can you please make me remember,How we started this fight?‘Cause I can't remember,our last good night. What are we doing?I said I loved you, You said you might. This is a jumbled mess,Do you realize?I look at your face,You look away from my eyes. 
That smile Broke me. Here at the start of suffering I let You, And only You Break my resolve And I simply Couldn't fight The tears Anymore.
Dear Nik,   Do you remember me? Do you recognize me?   Sometimes I wonder If you still think about me The way that I
See, just day before yesterday We were in love He'd smile when he saw me Hold me close Too scared to drop me See, that's how it used to be Still my best friend My number one shoulder
Little do you know How I'm breaking while you fall asleep Little do you know I'm still haunted by the memories Little do you know  
You were the happiest most wild person I’d ever met. Seeing you always brought joy to my otherwise lifeless life.
Dear you who I don’t know what to call anymore,   In between frozen touches and blank stares I knew it all along, hidden in your cryptic answers. Chaste messages. I figured It can’t be so bad.  
to you, who loved me without love:   it has been so long. three years ago You were everything. had not touched me yet
Dear Anon,   The anonymous you. The unknown to the world, but known deep to my heart. You’ve been there. Deep inside of me. You’ve heard the beats and rhythm. You’ve shaped and molded it to the way you wanted it.
Dear K, Intoxicated were we, but intoxicating was your kiss, the night we first expressed ourselves to each other.  Wrapped in your sweet embrace, unaware of future regret.

I thought I loved you, but I think I fell in love with the thought of you. You kissed me with such passion, and you told me things I know you had a hard time saying,
To the ones who have hurt me the most- I hate that you know when I'm holding back tears; how I play with my jewelry or pinch at my skin I hate that you know how I like my sandwiches-
Don’t tell me pretty lies, With that look on your face, Because although you are beautiful The ugly never fades. There’s beauty in your eyes, And there’s strength that’s in your arms,
Dear Love,   Sometimes, Your soft brown eyes Fill my Stomach with such a strong boiling rage I want to light your curly hair on fire
It’s been a few months now and I don’t know why I am writing about you. It feels like an obligation, but what will this really do?  
Why is love so cold? We sit back and wait til we grow old. In search to find the person of our dreams, We are left to be the one in need. Crying all night with no one to talk to,
Dear Heart, It's me againYes, I know I've been gone for awhile Yes, I still love you No, You are not alone  Cover up Your cracks are showing  Stop bleedingYour color is fading 
To the boy I have feelings for From the girl who can’t take it anymore   What hurts more than heartbreak  is the fact I saw a future But all the damage and pain Lonely, afraid, I’m not sure  
Dear Lover,  I am not a puppy or a little plaything you can choose because you think I am cute,  I am not a creature you can punish for not behaving how you would like me to,
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.
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.
I think I'm falling in love with a ghost, dear, I think I'm falling asleep. I see him on the edge of my vision, singing me soft lullabies with ethereal beats.    The ghost's eyes peer out at me,
I am unable to recast The same sun that rose  The day that was our last This isn’t what I chose Glass between our paths I had you in my grasp
Forgive my reach I can't stop I know I should But I can't stop We pick our fruits From the places we love But seasons change
Dear Sam,  Sometimes I'm not sure if I miss you or the way you made me feel. Sometimes I'm not sure if I can live another second without feeling the way you made me feel. Sometimes I'm not sure how you really made me feel.
I love you in the morning, with soft sunlight peeking through the curtains casting over your sleepy face; eyes dazed, smile slanted,
We met in school, but we rarely talked. You waited for me. Then I fell in love with someone else, But you waited for me. When it ended, we were in different classes, Yet you waited for me.
Dear Kelcee, It’s okay that we drifted apart, That’s just how things go sometimes, Just know you’ll always have a home in my heart. It’s okay that your life came crashing down,
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.
love is just not my thing.  maybe it never was. And never will be.
You had me fooled to think that you were right about everything.  But no you were trying to convince me to your side. Or at least the side you thought was right.  We are all wrong in different ways.
The tender gift of your gentle lips graced my chilled, red cheeks for the first time   The gift of your tenderness gives me reason
Dear Heartbreak, You're disintegrating me. All of my feelings of happiness are gone. It's been months... why keep torturing me? You're driving me to complete agony. I wish the pain of betrayal and 
I am from a no college family, from a brother in trouble with the law, and another brother with a mental illness.
Fear      breaks The crack of dawn Tossing, turning, yearning Hardly ever learning   People and places Pasts and problems Things I’ll never have the answer— Four Years. 
Dear Jessica,    What does a man feel like? Is he soft like trampled moss? Or scratchy like peeled back bark? Does his smile warm your heart?
Dear Jessica,    What does a man feel like? Is he soft like trampled moss? Or scratchy like peeled back bark? Does his smile warm your heart?
Dear you, You have hurt me deeply    Everything about me is suffering Coated with anger only to reveal the sadness underneath
Dear Him, Your eyes shine so bright, Just as the stars in the sky. I remember the night, You had said good bye. The sparkling sun gleamed down, As I replay the memories;
Everytime we argue, we create a storm. You say things you don't mean- please don't make a scene. Those vulgar words you say, I wish they could be unheard. And as we separate- the clouds they turn grey.  
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
Dear lover,   The warming filling of your heart brings satisfaction to my mind. I trust you with all my being to never ever break my heart.  
I could never love  Love someone who has the same name as you  Your name  Carries  Such negative connotations   I could never love your name again
Laith, I once loved a flower so much One day it started to wilt Despite all my efforts to save it Even for just a day It wilted away   That’s what it was like loving you    
Dear Josh,   I know a goodbye is due And I understand that you’re sad too. But my heart is breaking at the seam,
Dear Erin,  
Lark,   My voice could never reach your ears, but I hope this letter might. Listen for a moment, nothing more. Let my moonlit misery reach your heart and fall into you.
To the one that never was and never could be: Muhammad, Alhaji, quickfeet,   While the spirits of the dead Roam the heavens The fairytale we seek Shatters to the extreme While my suicide kisses
Dear boyfriend,  You utter unoriginal, clichés into my ears that sink and make me feel validated. You touch me with sinful purposes so that I feel like I might have a purpose.
someday a boy will break your heart in two consider this a forewarning to you   his eyes brilliant baby blue will consume you entirely
My dearest Zac, The words spilled out of your mouth  Apologies fell onto the table  Excuses splashed into my coffee so that it tasted like lead when I drank it.  You took the stars I once saw in your eyes 
Dear Person Who Broke My Heart, Yeah we all know about heartbreak And Lord why does it always feel like a mistake Making all these feelings start to resonate Like the stars floating in the galaxy
You take it all, my love is simply yours to take you frightened me, stripping me bare heed not, for I am not freed from this heartbreak "But I love you, it's true" you swear.  
Dear Mom... I don’t even know where to start with you these days. How are you? It feels weird to say that.  Do you wonder how I’m doing, too? I’m 25 now, A woman. Last time you saw me I was a girl.
Do you think about me the way I do about you? Do you reminisce about the past we once shared? I await the day when I can hold your hand again and smile because of our love Do you think about me, too?  
Dear L.B,   Four years ago, He died- My sweet loved one. It was a long, hard death, Taking months to ware him thin. Cancer does that to a person.   I was there when He died.
          I waited for you to fall into my arms. Instead, I just felt you slipping away.                                                              -expectations
dear lover, there are pieces of myself that simply belong to you. when you leave, you take, & you fill me up with lies in exchange for what you drained of me. this is the best way manipulative men will get me to stay.   
Was it my fault that you didn't tell me I was spending too much time away? Was it my fault I couldn't read your mind? Maybe I'm the fool.
Perhaps I was wrong, maybe my accusations have been oversung.   You were, as far as I was sure, the problem that made me fight.   But as I leave you in the dirt and move on, it seems
To my love--   There’s a shade of pink in the setting sky that reminds me of you. The same shade of pink
sometimes when i'm alone you rattle through my head you are loud yet gentle i make it a point not to listen to you, as if by doing so i am winning a prize if forgetting the last lines of the first verse is the prize
It isn’t as nice as it was three years ago when I knew you loved me, Now it’s more like smiling at you from behind a window with tears in my eyes...
Dear Hurricane Victor,   A hailstorm commenced when I agreed to be yours And you, mine… I often wonder if it was a sign.  
You tell me it didn’t happen like that-- I should just get over it… but I can’t. I can’t forget the words that you’ve said to me,
Dear Casey,   You said you loved me And I left you Because I couldn't do it. I couldn't do it...   You're 24 with a kid, You smoke weed, I met you online,
A twinkle in a kind souls eye,Lights smile with a single try.Sheepish grin, unsure of speach,A brush of hand, while just in reach.
To my Mocha Frappuccino, my first love, my first heartbreak,   Can beauty ever really come out of this pain? Can these words ensure that the suffering was not in vain?
To The Man Responsible--   Your memories come back in flashes like the bright white specks when you sit up too quickly
The branches are empty as the birds have flown. The tree still hopes for new nests to be sewn.   The night has passed and it's time for the dawn. Yesterday is there but the shadows are gone.  
The first thing you notice is the smile. It melts your heart away.He will try to hide it when he realizes that you've noticed.if he does this, just tease him. Tell him not to smile. I promise he will be smiling in three seconds max.
Dear Heartbreaker,    Thank you.  Thank you for breaking me and leaving me. Thank you for destroying my confidence. Thank you for the lies, the cheating, the arguments.
As you embark on this journey of life It is imperative that you know I am with you Although we're miles apart In distance and in heart Somehow, I will remain with you
Dear Unidentified Man,
Sitting in the coffee shop Where once we’d smile My heart did a little hop I saw her for the first time in a while   My hands were shaking 
They tell me I don't need alcohol to have fun. They tell me it's ok to socialize and be happy before getting drunk, but I can't do that after you left.
Dear past lover    I remember opening my heart and difficult life to you . I remember the laughter , first times , and happiness. Past lover I remember you ripping my heart out and not caring.
Your distance has done nothing but destroy my sanity and leave me feeling all messed up. There was once a time you poured your all into me; now, you’re just an empty cup.
I was trying to be conscientious to not think about you, But after closing myself off in a personal quarantine for so long, I couldn’t help but start reminiscing about our relationship.
Dear Christian, I try not to cry as I say goodbye. Perhaps before we meet next I'll die Or maybe you will forget about us. I blame the rat for leaving with a cuss. The lack of you leaves holed my center core.
Dear First Love,   With words left unsaid, and feelings left unexplored, I try to rest my head, as sleep goes ignored.   We were two young kids with the world at our feet.
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
i'd still do it all over again and every day i fell for you i hoped you would love me too but you wouldn't maybe i was wrong for thinking you'd stay but i never figured
Everyone tells me what I did wrong and how to fix it for next time. Next time. Next time there won’t be a next time. There are too many holes and trysts and trails in my heart I’m shutting it all down.
It started cute...  like any normal relationship  we talked everyday,  learning eachothers loves, dreams and passions.  I told you what I was...  You said that you didn't mind. 
to my best friend, call it whatever you want whatever this was it was us two stubborn teens stuck in this cycle going back and forth
          Dear Samantha, My dearest Samantha. This letter has found you which makes my heart soar  to the heavens. I cannot hide my feelings for you within, so I include them in this letter.
I see your shirt, I see you in it,  Then back out of it again.   Every night I end up in the same place, At the bottom of the hole that you dug for me.
    wrap me in your love again. blanket plush, velvet crushed. make me feel again. misery, over and over.
My dear raging wildfire love, It really just takes a small spark to start the fire, But when it takes control, It takes over, engulfing everything,
You said, you said that we'd last but now the flag flies half-mast You said, you said this was true, so real so how is it you cease to feel You said, you said, don't give up yet whose eyes look away so abrupt
Of a melancholy tone She is through with you Look at what you have done And the madness you've put her through Just consider her gone You manipulated her heart Always the one to torture
Dear My Future Ex,   I'm tired of all the lying and the cheating, Our alliance suffers from treason,   Whenever we talk, we're fire breathing, Only time we aren't fighting, is when we're eating,
With everything that's happening,Between you and me and them,I'm just starting to realize,The things I've been missing out on, In the days I've been gone.I didn't want to wait long, But I'm afraid of putting myself out in the open, So here it goes
You are the closest image of home I have ever encountered. I buried my secrets into your crumbling foundation. My truths filled the holes of your cracking backbone. You loved it; more so you needed it to survive.
I know you probably have had millions of different people around the world seek out to you. People of different skin tones and cultures, who have been searching for you their entire life's and not to even have a glimpse of you. The real you.
Dear Person, I thought I knew, The day we met I was at my best, life was full and my heart was beating out of my chest,
A smile one day changed everythingI didn't know then, how could I?One doesn't just jump from one to the nextBut, is it worth it?Future can be surrounded with success and happiness,or fraud and despair
Love is a thing with Arms,it loves to craddle you when most weak -It listens to your thoughts and changes them- All you do is out of love-But what is love might I say-Dreadful tears and sorrowful alibies
I need closure.   Set some things straight.   I was insecure and vulnerable, and no, I don't want to go on a date.   Why do you taunt me?    Stupid, silly, fate.  
Time. It's been 1 week. You've stopped talking to me and it makes me think, Everything is not what it seems. You've stopped with the cute nicknames. You've stopped and I feel like I'm to blame.
Dear Rebekah, I always take a look at you when you're not aware, But most times you catch me looking and I find it so unfair That the stars in your eyes twinkle, when you see him and not me,
This poem reflects a bad relationship: Dear whoever cares, My heart hurts. My stomach hurts My chest hurts. It's my entire body actually. I feel like I forgot how to breathe. This isn't right.
to the person i can’t forget,   the sun sets, taking my happiness with it. the same way you left, taking parts of me with you. and i realize, after you left,
  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
Dear ex-lover,    You say that it's not always about me as if this fear of not being enough of ruining every good thing in my life
dear heartbreak,
Girl, just turn the page He never was into you All he did was criticize And broke your poor heart in two It was nothing but a facade A masquerade at that Do not drown in sorrow
To My First Love, Oh boy did I love you. We went from nothing to everything in under a month. A couple of dates, to hanging out every single day. I was on top of the world with you.
You
  I thought I knew you, The you sitting there, With an eager smile, You would take to a chair. A chair beside me,
If I were to see you again I'd run to you Wrap my arms around your neck And bury my face in your shoulder I'd inhale so deep my lungs burst with your scent
My summers used to consist of waking up to the sun high in the sky, riding bikes around the neighborhood, and slip n slides.  But as time went on, and I got older, the neighbors moved aw The water fights, replaced with my phone.
Dear Grandma, I'm doing fine. Thanks. How are you? ... How long has it been since I last wrote? Couple weeks. yeah. ... huh? ... Like really wrote?
Liberation, She called it, Discharging pet Lovebird from the Foreign shackles Named commitment  
Dear first love, You left me scarred Positively and negatively You know everything you did right but little of what you did wrong.
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
Winter has whispered it's gentle song, above and below, like an ancient tongue.   The streets are frosted, much like her eyes. I can't find her, not even amidst the blue suburban skies.  
I left a ghost, on the curb of a suburb at midnight.   We parted ways, and I mumbled goodbye.
You can keep the flowers, carry my words, leave with tide.   And keep the winter silence, you so willingly traded me for.
Dear What Could've Been,  hey. this is kind of weird. i know you but you dont know me i think about you a lot actually  i wallow in the idea of you  i savor each moment  moments 
Ok I can do this  Hi... There... No that’s not right  Hello, how’s it going? That’s not it either  Hey... Oh you’re gone.  
I want the version of you Made up in my head That comes to me in dreams But my heart knows That she’s not the same you Who left me shaking
Dear Pain,  There are things that need to be said  but the words always seem to run There are actions that ought to be taken but the rhythm seems undone The tears appears all dried up
Dear Loss,   I am watching you walk away (for the God-knows-how-many-th-time), but this time it is different.  
One person Made me so happy Yet so dejected At the same time   We used to sit And watch the leaves fall During the most
To wake up to the sound of my own broken heart that is the worst way to start the dayTo wake up thinking about how you leftmakes me want to drive a knife through my heartTo wake up not knowing the future of us
I write this poem To my grandmother A sister, a friend, A wife, A mother   The sweetest being One could know An uplifting spirit If you were low   She wore that smile
Your beady eyes are as dark as the night Your hair is too long and must be cut soon Your presence beside me doesn't feel right When you speak to me I no longer swoon Your sister's red car pulls out of the lot
Once again that my heart shattered Lights went blackout, no more flickered My head went full blank My life I had hang I thought my life doesn't matter
  For a moment I heard your voice, for a moment time stopped just so I could notice you. You’ve changed so much, it’s clear that everything between us is now different.  
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
Falling Once again Too deep to try to swim Falling For him I need to stop I'll just get hurt He will just hurt me in the end But im falling Into his ocean eyes
Falling Once again Too deep to try to swim Falling For him I need to stop I'll just get hurt He will just hurt me in the end But im falling Into his ocean eyes
To all young people considering returning to a boy who forfeit his right to be called a boyfriend I have some advice  
Te quiero mucho. Mucho. ¿Por qué no lo vez? Eres mi mundo. Tienes mi corazón. Te quiero en mis brazos. Te amo.
All I want for you is to laugh with me.  I want to make you laugh. I want to hear you laugh next to me. The sound that sounds oh so good to me. The sound that my ears never get tired of.
Run away into her arms You’ll be safe there Drowned in expensive perfume Gluttony, let me eat the envy 12 batches of burnt chocolate chip cookies  
Early dawn in the bed when you cried out for your mother And you choked on your tears as they rolled you down the stairs They said by god’s grace but it was really just a stretcher and sirens
I never knew what it was like to feel so broken  you couldnt get out of bed because you didnt want to face the world But after years Of having the weight of the world on my soul
i feel you in my           bones you are the breath caught    in my lungs and running through   my       veins and maybe thats why  i find myself        running the blade across my
  Dang, another hour passed Here, thinking ‘bout our past Time slipping through our hands Like an hourglass. And I just sit here and just laugh,
You are an artist when it comes to words.  Your tongue is the brush, my heart the canvas.  You knew just the words to paint my heart  the color of love you promised me.  You charmed me with reds of passion. 
I said i’d leave you alone But nights like these make me want to talk to you. You’re the piece of my youth & desperation That god no longer wanted to carry.
dear boy i almost gave everything to, i am not a glistening bar of solid authentic gold, i am not a crystal clear 50 karat diamond, i am not a smooth pearl that shimmers in the sun.   i am a ruby.
I can feel their love, feel how much they care. Yet, is it enough to keep me from the thoughts that lurk in the back of my mind, swiming in the pool of insecurites, splashing its poisonous water
Girl, his heart was never there But you decided to stay You were blindsided by love He has sadly, led you astray You have suffered a great deal What a tough lesson to learn Next time just open your eyes
To The Girl Who Has His Heart Now,
  How could you let me grow so fond of you? When I said “I love you”- I meant it. I use to think you did, too. No longer do I believe that lie
You used to say The only way You could ever sleep Was in my arms So when did it change That I was the one Wandering at night And you were the one Finding solace in sleep?  
I only started Praying again When I thought that god Might give me a hand So for the second time In my life I lay awake at night Reciting the Lord’s Prayer Every single night
There is another sky With another life Where our names aren’t etched Onto my bones Poisoning my roots   Where stars don’t hold My wishes long gone There to taunt me
There you are where I could always admire from afar See your light, Its radiant colors Melting into the ocean waters   Here I am
Dear mother,  I banged on your bedroom door with a bleeding heart you pretended to be asleep I hate you  I came home and found a note on my bed, in which you wrote
IF I COULD CHANGE THE PATH I DECIDED TO FOLLOW    what a fool I was;  i exposed  the depths of my soul to you  on dreary cloudless nights when the moon was high  and the only thing 
Dearest Jon, I'm back. Once again I remember your face and long for your touch when my mind  s i n k s to the depths reserved for sleep depreived nights.

To: My Heartbreaker I've had a lot on my mind, and if I hold it in any more,I think I'm going to burst.You don't know this but
Liar, liar you broke my heart first you set my flesh afire I gasped as you let go of my hand and watched me burn liar, liar why would you do this?
Dear child,   Unravel me. I am lost, a spider embedded in her own web. Push, fidget, scratch, claw Fingernails on their death bed. Gnawed by fear, gargled by pain, Spit out by forgiveness.
She has decided to walk away Because, you did not treat her right Nothing but a chaotic scene Situations sadly, ended in a fuss or fight Face the reality of the matter She often drowned in tears
Dear Koleen,
The teardrops on my face Keep dripping The tables turn and somehow  Keep flipping
I miss the smell of alcohol on your breath, The haze of smoke in the air around us, The half smirk you always have curled up on the left side of your mouth,  
Why does he do such things? Or should I say Why doesn’t he do such things? It’s the little things that count Where are the little things?   Am I
Think a thought and let it simmer Go for a walk in the woods and get wonderfully lost Take a blow to the head and taste the liquor Jump on a plane and forget the cost   Cut the gluten and end up thinner
To the boy I loved in high school, I remember the day you told me Everyone has an addiction for some it’s smoking and others it’s binge drinking My addiction wasn’t nicotine or alcohol
For the first time. Sad love songs Didn't make sense anymore. The melody would twist into my ears, But my brain did not remember The familiar guest; She was rejected at the door.
In a second Mutuals become companions From jokes to sincerity From half-hearted chats to imersive colloquy   In a second Companions tie themselves together Silver shiny peal
Isn't strange. Isn't it weird. To know someone so well but find their favorites feel like a rubix cube. Their favorite color a mystery Their favorite food a riddle
Seeming sweet Yet turning salty Worlds reversed A lovely treat But quite faulty Something still lurks Dictionary's anguish Sunshine's despondence Aroma's maliase Once a wish
A ring rests lightly on my finger No not a golden band, A simple piece of metal,
dear love, you are a nightmare dressed as a miracle. you are misleading. you are troublesome. but somehow, you always seem beautiful. you always seem to pull me in
If I share my mind, will that be of higher value than my body? If I share my words, my thoughts, fears, passions,  will that be of higher value than my kisses, my hugs, touches, caressing hands?
Sometimes I can't tell if I'm falling in love with the person or the moment. Sometimes I wish I could still dwell in my depression with you. It felt easier. At least I wasn't alone.
I can't get your fucking taste out of my mouthand you can't get mad at me for the ways I tried to   I kissed him and I kissed anotherbut I think they could tell I whispered your name into their mouths

“We need to move on,” you say. I pretend I’m okay. I lay in my bed, staring at the ceiling. The same ceiling I would look at while in the bed with you. I imagine every touch so vividly I almost feel it.
Dear you, It has been awhile I know. My heart has been hurting and my bones are becoming dry.   Dear you, I’ve ignored your cries, I’m sorry.
Wanting what you can’t have Enough to drive you crazy Feelings getting stronger And now it’s scary Fear of rejection Show remorse When I ask if you want this When I go for the last kiss
i called. as i listened to my phone ring- going once, going twice- it stopped; my heart did, too.   for a moment, i thought you had answered. but then, oh, but then, there goes the ringer,
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.
You are just standing there in the dark The look on your face seems grim The lady of your life has taken lots of abuse Your outlook looks mighty slim She feels battered and betrayed
Dear most loved lover,  I sat here ... and thought of you.  I felt something everytime you spoke, everytime you breathed.  I want to say it was fear because then I would have a reason to leave you,  -to protect me-
Childhood's games with my best buddy turned into    his father "breaking up" with me for him in front of my mother. All night video games binge-sessions shifted into routines of staying in my bedroom all  night
Dear God, He just committed a fraud. He promised to never leave, And made me believe. Oh, why? Have I been told a lie? Now I lay confused, And my heart is bruised. Oh, please guide me,
"You have neat eyes" Said one of the sweetest guys "You're the best thing that's ever happened to me" He was as sweet as can be "When we get married..." he would always say When did that feeling go away?
Oh it's you.  Hello again! I know, it's been so long, it's so nice to see you! What do you think? I've barely been holding myself together.  Are you kidding, I've never been better! How's the wife?
I thought that if I gave you your stuff back, then your ghost would leave me. And I thought that if I flirted with other guys, I'd forget the words you told me before. But the truth is, everything I do makes my heart ache more.
Dear Rose,  
To whom it may concern, Actually, you’re the one that should be concerned. I would say your name but even when I call on your name You still don’t listen.
Dear the person who took my heart, Once upon a time, there was a girl and a guy who had very paranoid ideas about meeting people.

As I fade in and out of sleep Thoughts of you dance through my mind It pains me to know That you never experienced such sorrows Your first love
My love For thunderclouds And rainy nights Is like my love For you   Cold and depressing.  
Ill use the love letters you wrote me to fuel the fire I light to destroy this paper house I have been living in.    
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
Love is enticing Icing on cake I'll go where it takes me  I hope I don't break   I've made journeys to hearts Universes apart I've seen, but I've felt much more
"The windows to our soul", they are often named, an indicator for first impressions - or feelings. Blessed as they were, when I first saw you.  Though sadness you emanated, curiousness I took in.
Approximately, there’s a 1 chance in 10^390 (it’s in scientific notation, and it happens to be quite the number, biggest number here actually.) of life on earth, it is so near to impossible that it would never happen in the 13 billion years or so

The letter of a tragedy Where it all began;   It all started with the letter A I flew up to the skies with him
I hate you. The thought of you makes me insane. The way you manipulate when you look at me with eyelids heavy and lips curled.
Our love was bright red,  You made me fall quick and hard, Then tore me to shreds.

I drank the poison, And became addicted. You warned me to ease off of it, Then you went and flipped it. You became addicted to my addiction. But when I lost my supply, You made sure I got high,

It's a crowded room, but all I see is summer rain on cobblestones, and through a rain-stained lens, something points my vision to you. Like the headlights of two cars behind red lights at a midnight
I look in the mirror And see everything he couldn't. I see the angel kisses spread across my skin Even the one on my lip. I see the gentleness in my eyes And the hope in my smile.
Dear momma Thank you for giving me Real Love The kind of love where I feel safe enough To be myself and shine Real Love
Healthy love, is not one sided it is more than a rush once two people are united it is to put full trust in someone and not wanting to let go it is not listening and going with the flow
Sorry. I'm sorry. I fucked up, I know. It doesnt mean anything now but if somehow it means something, I only meant well.   I only wanted to feel what it was like
Because I Love You,
Because I love you, I decided to stay I listened to every possible excuse that you had to say   Because I love you, I clung on until the very end
"I like you too."  Something that I,  for five years,  have longed to hear  you tell me.  My heart throbbed  with ecstasy,  My stomach panged  in surprise, 
You love me, I sit in my room playing games. You tell me you love me. I love you, I sit at my desk in my room playing games. You tell me you love me. You love me, I sit on my bed in my room playing games. You tell me you hate me.
you’re nine years old. At this time, you’re starting to lose esperanza.
I used to obsess about my books being perpendicular on the night stand; that was of course before you found your way into my life.
I know what's wrong.  I'm so afraid to jump and fall My heart wants to jump She thinks it's worth it, she's been hurt but not enough. My mind sees the hurt and warns of the danger
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.
I wonder if you know what you do to me or what happens when you look into my eyes.   And I wonder if a heart could break from strain of staying away too long.  
I'm sorry.   I'm sorry for the lies, the things I've done, and constantly reminding you how little I care.  
Because I love you I send good morning texts And goodnight texts Because I love you I remind you to eat And make sure you're okay Because I love you I break down knowing we won't last
The world doesn't understand our love. It cannot comprehend the myriad of emotions you make me feel. They do not see us the way we do, Only seeing us as two females in a heteronormative society.
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
All my life I have been taught to work towards my desires- And turn them into possessions. And for the most part, I have been successful.
Wish to cut deep into my skin, Past the bones and intestines, To my inner layer of blood and marrow To take away my pain tomorrow Wish to drown inside the water Were even sound does not bother
The Words Spill onto  The paper in Dropletts of agony Things that left my mind When the tenderness of the moment Encapsulated me in the Woven Tapestry of  Your adortion
  You wouldn’t know it if you met her But her moods can make Hurricanes in your soul Storms that pour and destroy And seem to last forever
Did I call you beautiful enough? Was I so careless as to Confine those words to a feeling? That time you sat on the counter While we made heart-shaped cookies
Aching, Screaming, Pounding Pain, Spin my world and Split my brain.   It hurts, It mars,
Those innocent smiles and hugs Did they give your heart a tug? Make you fall deeper and deeper each time Make you wish you were all mine   My heart swayed with your sensation My threads too bare
Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in America in all genders.  It penetrates your atriums, obliterates your aortas, and annihilates your artery’s.  They say nothing sucks the life out of you like Death.
You enter a farmer’s market There is a wide range of fruits From oranges apples pomegranates and yes Even the controversial tomato    
 Toxic thoughts arrive uninvited   Memories of love unrequited Undecided on what’s there for me, I wonder why you weren’t  there for me Everyone said, “Tread carefully”, I was running on ice and never knew I fell in
When you were my craving, you crippled desire, gave aid to aversion, extinguished our fire. We flickered and faulted in ashes, your potion of passion was potent but proved to be altered. It may be you,
Spoken Communicated Listen   Comforted Focused Responded   Stopped Stopped Stopped  
I am sorry, it is time for me to depart I have seen the person that you really are Yet, he wishes for me to stay Pulling the same trick just so I stick around for another day
You Are the hope around my neck. The pendant on my chest rests on the Padlock to my blood that Stained all over the dress you stressed to see me-
What they don’t tell you about being pretty is that boys will kiss you without your permission and lead you into their bedrooms when their parents aren’t home
Because I love you I believe your lies when you tell me I’m your everything   Because I love you I listen to your evil slurs when you drunkenly push me against the wall  
Your shoulders held up with gilded rope. Delicate, as if gliding on the wind. My words slip, voice chokes and drowns, and for an insignificant time, I’m lost and strung out. The moment came and the moment
Do you want to know why dreams are better than reality?   In dreams, you can be with people who you could never be with in reality. You can hug and hold them with no fear of separation.
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?  
He was a child when he figured out his life plan. Heartbreaker. Maybe he know his future occupation would consist of broken Tears seamlessly Streaming

Becasue at one time I love you: I let you touch my soul you had the magic touch two mend my torn heart At three you kept my bed warm like a burning piece of coal  when no one else was there four me 
As you were the light that rose upon my life the day you sung your beautiful melody to me, I never wanted you to leave; but if your happiness depended on it then that's all I ever wanted was for you to be happy,
it scares me  how much control you have over me if I give you my heart will you tear it apart?   I find it kind of frightening how you struck me like lightning scars on my heart
You
For my entire life I never had a close friend And a life of outlandish interests Outcast me from the mainstream And left me in a bubble.
i guess i’ll back away from you, untangling the knots i’ve made around the concept of us. why does love always leave me with scabbed knees from landing too hard on the concrete.
I heard you in the wind The whispers were your voice I felt you in my bones The sweetest familiar noise I saw you in the waves
Summer time, crisp hot air, beautiful blue sky, and calmness, Heart damaged along with a wall built up the highest; trying to forget, Walking to the corner store to get some drinks, 
  mirror, mirror on the wall who is the fairest of them all? perhaps it is the boy who used to pinch me in preschool thinking hitting girls was what made rugrat boys cool
I'm afraid of change Afraid of not knowing What the next person Will be like with me Afraid of what they Might think about me Will they leave me Empty, alone, vulnerable Writing a poem in
I want to be with you all the time Because I love you I want to not be miles apart Because I love you Don't talk to other guys Because I love you Don't talk to anyone, just go home
I should have known better than to stare into your eyes for too long Or to read into your touch Now I sit here, pulling at strings But there is nothing to grab I thought, for a moment, that I might have you
Because I love you I find it hard to breathe The walls crash down on me Filling my lungs with screams Screams that suffocate
I let you in at the beginning, because I love you. I grew to like onions and watching horror movies, because I love you. I lost every friend, every other relationship, because I love you.
Because I love you, I will call you Dear, I will let you yell too, I will ignore my fears. Because I love you, I will hold in these tears, I will smile for you, I will call for help.
SOMETIMES I WONDER WHAT IT’S LIKE IN THAT MAN’S SHOES AND WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE SO LOVED, AND UNAPOLOGETICALLY YOURSELF
It’s been a few days, Since I’ve looked in your eyes But I know the joy is gone, And you feel empty inside. I peek over my shoulder, Catch you turning away. You think I didn’t notice,
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?
If my heart were a garden, Words flowers, I would suffocate in the weeds of your silence.
I was sixteen And with an open heart I did dream and fantasied alot I was loved and knew it I strolled to adulthood en route I fell in love and my imaginations widened I would lay awake all night
Cut me open tear me apart, This life wasn't chosen, so rip out my heart.   Replace it with stones so that I may turn cold.   Only then will I not care and still know
When the one you love most is getting hurt, what do you do? I knew her the best; we spent so much time together, it's impossible anyone surpassed our closeness.
My heart was hungry, a mouth to feed It thumped in my chest, the sound like a thousand pounding feet flooding the streets of the Big Apple You appeared, close but out of reach,
It's 1st January Happy new year That's all I could write on the card I was a little apprehensive as to what you'd say But I was a bit anxious too Had you rejected the card or made a seen What then?
A phrase that can mend a heart or break it into a million pieces
I Love You means so little When You're Crazy hurts so much I Love You Means so little When your heart is too cold to touch I thought you wanted the best for me Tell me, was it true?
Motherless Fatherless -child, alone in the world looking for direction.She's missing her fathers protection and her mothers affection.What she wouldn't give for just a moment so Surreal-- to feel, the touch of them both.
You liked to look at old things like houses. It was like a system check to make sure you were alive. Then one night, while I was resting under the hazy watch of a dark sky, you made my body your house.
I waded in the waters of nostalgia, of heartbreak.   Dancing under the veil of midnight glamour, the ghost of laughter admist unkept promises.   Silence, fractured her,
Maybe sunsets remind me of you, because I'm always left with the view of watching you fall, each time for someone else.
I turn away, from the beauty of the falling sun, hoping I can turn away from you.
because i love you i will still wish you the best and hope you are happy even though i am not i will wish the best for you even when you find another person to help you fix yourself
Every inch of my skin where you touched me now burns Every emotion you made me feel must burn Every memory of us will burn   I do not hate you I hate what you did The things you said
While we were innocent and happy you made me feel like flowers And I couldn't keep them to myself So I decided to plant them all over and make them as beautiful as you made me  
What can I say or do?I've begged you to stay but it seems that's the reason you walked away, giving me the excuse it's me, not you.With my heart torn into two what was I suppose to do?Sit around and cry, I've tried and I still feel awful.I've talk
Giving, giving, giving, giving, giving, no take I thought that just for once, my heart would catch a break Break as in rest, but instead the shit shattered
That boy. That boy you see on Instagram, You think he is cute? Well on the outside He is… But on the inside He will crush you. He will break you. As soon as you connect with him,
Once upon a time in suburbia not far, there lived a middle aged women who lived on a hill.
Rotten Core. That's what I found of you the one I adore. Adored. Once you came to my house with that apple, Charming, your smile full of esctacy
It's been a while since you shattered my heart. You left me all the memories to remember, i don't regret any cause I loved you from the start. I still see your smile in front of me, i still feel your touch on me,
The cave that protected me from the outside storm seems to be falling apart from withinLarge stones drop from the roof and the crash bounces off the wallsThe whistling and ringing in my ear are deafening The collapse forces me out And the storm co
The years passed so swiftly, And swiftly so too did I fall in love, My only life’s desire for you to embrace me,
It was pure luck I saw her from far away From the darkness of the brush And I prepare my jaws to crush   Her name was Little Red
We carved our future into the starsAnd then sat back and watched them float And boy did they move TwistingLeapingDancing through the night They spoke our lives Only,
3
You left a hole a mile wide And now I know how it feels to die This burning pit and vast alone I hate that you left but I’m glad you’re gone How could you shred my heart like this
Innocent eyes, hope alive, secret desires, tongue tied, plastic smile, Manipulative mind, genuine heart, conflictive thoughts, emotions rot,
I know you don't want to talk to me because you need to breathe but I'm restless without you  they say the only ones up at 4am are the loved and the lonely  but I'm broken You see
I cupped you in my hands and i said you couldn't leave. How silly of me. You burrowed your way through my ring finger and fought your way free.   I saw a picture of me and you today.
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
as if pulled by strings two puppets of the same master lift their cups to open lips fill themselves spill over the edges drink each other in think of love and of sin and the convergence of fate
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
I let you inside of my brain, didn't understand why you caused me pain, I find myself waking up in the middle of the night, Trying desperately to feel alright,   There is lead in my bones,
Your voice haunts me. Your image dances in my head. I cannot escape this feeling that's been filling me with dread. I am in a constant cycle of anxiety and despair, 'cause every time I go to sleep,
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
And then the rustling Of my shaking trust Fills my heart Those shards of betrayal Go deeper than I thought Hurting more than I had anticipated
It's some things I wish I could delete from my memory Like the way we used to be I wish I could un-feel the safety I felt with your arms around me     Wish I could outrun the thoughts that chase me 
I fell in love once and that will never happen again People say there are plenty more fish in the sea but no, not for me  See love like this was supposed to be a dream    At first it was rose petals and silver bells
The stitched wound was ripped open The heart bledIt ached like an earthquakeThat didnt seem to end Breaths waverBody shakes Please save herBefore she breaks 
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,
There is a voice in the back of my skull that screams for release, That can only be found in a razor blade, or between your lips. If I pick and prod at my flesh enough I realize soon enough I can't feel anything,
You know that moment in your life where you just want to die? because you feel that it absolutely could not possibly get any worse; I felt this before I met you.
I look at you and I cannot believe that you don't know can't feel my depth of love, cannot reach your hand inside my heart and pull yourself out. I wonder feverishly
11:11pm I wished for you, I always wish for you.    I think that's what scares me the most, I cant stop wishing for you. I close my eyes as the tears roll down my cheeks and a shiver crawls down my spine.  
She sits on the swing right outside her window.   The window where she use to sneak out of every night.   It's 1 in the morning and her thoughts lead her back.  
I can't sleep without the window open at night.   I can hear the roaring of cars in the distance.   It reminds me of whe we would listen for cars before we crossed the street.  
These images that I play in my head, never see to disappear. Like the image of you turing away, not a galance back. But you've wittness my fairytale finally come to an end.
We were supposed to bike through Central Park and ride through the trees.We were supposed to take a trip to the shore and sleep on the beach.We were supposed to plant your garden and protect it from the bees.We were supposed to cuddle all night in
If I fell, would I feel it? The impact that would shake my bones? Or would my body remain numb, unaware of the cold?   Would my heart still beat, thumping against its cage?
  You and me Balanced out in my tea Never been so cold Never been so sweet Right now it's not so good for me I guess we started out too strong Just a matter of  time Before something went wrong
Love is a broken promise, signing away your life. Trying to find clarity; instead, finding strife.
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  
I look around this hopeless cold world and all I see is rain..A broken mirror to my heart, the pieces of pain..How soon we forget..Long years and a lot of regrets..
you build with your words , you make sky scrapers from your sentences and cathedrals with stanzas ,
I'm not your Prince Charming  I'm not your Romeo  I'm not the one you call darling but don't cry infinite sorrows   Let me show you how to love and to laugh and cry Let me help you get back up
 Can you find me for me? I can’t believe this happened that was a big shaker I can’t even find my pieces.
I taught you how to love me and instead you took the information to use it for herThat's all I was for youA source on how to become better for someone elseIm a used book that got put back on the shelfEverything I ever showed you on how to love was
Remember when you laid next to me in my bedYou remember, yeah don't you?Covers over us and bodies pressed togetherYou loved me, didn't you?Well that's what you said when we were done fucking
I stood in the spot where we'd make out in my kitchen; where my parents couldn't seeI felt the loneliness in the lack of your presence and couldn't help but think How did we get to this? I thought what we had was love I thought you wanted
He made her feel so alive She yearned for that feeling of joyOnly he gave that to herHer eyes lit up like the night sky at the very sight of himHer heart came out of her chest with every word he spoke and lyric he sangShe felt so alive with him Be
You never said thank you for the rides home You never returned the looks in the hallways The texts with the girl of the same name, I would never do that to you
Your not here anymore Makes me wonder if you did leave A troubled soul that didn't know What he had when he left   We are learning a topic About something you endured
Everyone makes mistakes.. and everyone forgives, but why'd you forgive me... I remember the way you talked about him... You were actually happy when you got to talk, but then I came into the picture...
The thunder; it roars in the night resembling my stomach, for which I haven't ate a thing in days. Staring at my food, picking around it with my fork. The wind seems to blow cold sharp shards into my skin.  
First Sight Boundaries between, Walls knocked down Skies are cleared, King finds his crown. Smiles all the same But one in particular; Remains. Butterflies in the brain
You were over Me quick and Readily pricked My weak little Heart with your Needles.  
It's days like today when everything's just a little bit harder I'm constantly pricked with little reminders of a past life The breeze on a walk with an old friend whispers our memories
I keep thinking that someone needs to pay What can i do to make that happen I know i never will do a thing because of my nature Yet the fact they never saw my true pain frustrates me to no end I wish i punched you
Life has never been easy for meI've began to state the question,To be or not to be?I have become numb.  
I want to love you America, but how can I when our greatest mistake as a nation is preaching to our youth that what is in our textbooks can never happen again   we preach intelligence 
Squeezing  My chest is ...Squeezing Calling out for you to Squeeze me Hold me close and Acknowledge my existence without making me feel kiddish Like a child with a crush on a teacher
Her words can hold rhythm with the way your heart beats Her mouth spews promises I wish she could keep Theres whole galaxies in her head But she's afraid to leave the earth They say God is in the cosmos
i told him i loved him and he didn't say it back and now he's standing in the doorway watching me pack up my bags begging me "don't leave" but why would i stay why would i waste my time
  This venom stung me so deep that all I see is a blurred vision, The random feel of a pain so strong that all I fear is getting burned. You painted the black canvas in a dessert filled with sorrow,
I'm tired I miss you You don't care So why do I either bother writing how I feel I tried with you Over and over I failed with you You didn't care You brought me so many tears
You committed a murder....... ..... It's when I died. I wasn't a soldier, and only you survived. It hurt so much! Your intentional blows! The intangible touch, that left my heart holes.
Why does it hurt so much? The words that fled your mouth into my ears still linger in my brain. And the promises you made, the hope you fed me and the lies I gobbled up, gullible child I am,
I'm sad I'm mad My music is gone For so long Headphones are dead With my soul along with it
I crashed into emptiness as I laid down My mind rose to find I was asleep - trapped in myself with nowhere to go My hands in my pockets, I walked along the road of memory looking for you
Why do I do such hurtful things.. My mind, body & soul are just in separate places I feel I'm not where I'm suppose to be
I'm sorry. I'm sorry if I've caused you any sadness these past couple days. I'm sorry if I creeped you out. I'm sorry if I disgusted you with the idea of my love. I'm sorry if I put a bullet through your heart.
The pain is almost unbearable. I never excpected to love you, it just happened. And now here I am wishing you'd just speak to me. You flirt with everyone, but the one boy that flirts back is shunned.
As I remember my happy times, I long for them back. Me just a whisper of your past, but you are still screaming in my ear. I still laugh at our walks together, our childish conversations.
You call this a crush? I feel like shit everyday you avoid me. I feel like I deserve to die because what I've done. God has cursed me and left me to wilt in this ditch.
In an ocean of darkness, there is one light for me. And it shines brighter than even the sun above. It is so close, yet not within reach. I try to get closer, but the light fades into the distance.
I lie in bed like a corpse dreading these words,a small word that pierces your heart like a knife.Goodbye..I feel the hot tears roll down my face as the butterflies in my stomach start to tremble.  The smell of home enters my system as I put my he
You were my world. You were the sun of my solar system. The music of my life. You mattered to me more than anything. And you still do.   Did you ever think about me? Did you ever dream about us?
Was it a dream? Us? We were so happy. So childlike. So carefree. What happened? It was too short. I messed it up, didn't I? My happiest days were with you.
Do you think this is what I wanted? Do you think I follow you so I can torment you? Do you think I'm happy? Do you think I am mad at you? Do you think I hate you?   I would never be mad at you.
Why do I love you? I love you because you make gremlin faces at me. I love you because your teeth don't quite line up. I love you because you bounce all over the place.
Every time I think of our time as friends, I die inside. I feel as though I just swallowed broken glass. I want to curl up in a ball and cry forever. Everytime I see you I think of my mistakes.
New
This feeling is brand new, and I'm not sure if I like it. It's intensity burns brighter than anything I have ever known. It gives me hope and motivation. It also makes me feel hopeless and demotivates me.
War
Everyday I fight a war. I get up without the guarantee of seeing you. I go to school without you to make it bearable. I smile without you to make it real. I laugh without you to make it full.
People cannot be broken Nevertheless, there will come a time When you meet someone who will make you feel like Hundreds of pieces of pottery Scattered on the ground
Darkness cloaks her being  like shadows dancing upon the gravel.  No angel but all devil 
once again I am left with a bird for a heart - it's winter and the bird is stuck it calls for its mate it pecks at the bars   once again I am left with a bird for a heart -
My past life used to appeal to me, now it is dreary in comparison. No one I truly loved, no full happiness, no perfect peace. I could fall asleep without tears or anguish,
Do you know how much the silent treatment hurts? When you put yourself within arms reach, but you're still out of reach. Everyday, I see you, hear you, but you don't seem to see or hear me.
Around this time last year, We were sitting in your car, With my arms around your neck, And our eyes up on the stars
We blew up our bubble With hot breaths Of late night conversations Of things I wanted to confess Of things he wanted to hear
Beeps of the monitor wake me He’ll make it through wait and see He’s still not moving And now I’m shaking Crying out, holding his hand
Fatal Infatuation   As a child I was told of the significance of what we call love The sweet serendipity that it brings to your life
I found the feeling of love in a teenage boy, deep in his caramel eyes. The warmth I felt when I stared kept me warm through those cold October nights
HE CHOSE HER DIDN'T CHOOSE ME A VERY ANGRY WOMAN WAS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ME?   I LOVED HIM THROUGH THE YEARS HE CAUSED ME PAIN HE CAUSED ME TEARS.   HE LEFT ME WHEN 
When I was thirteen, I knew exactly who  I was going to marry. He would be tall, and strong, with black hair  and even blacker eyes. He would be my protector.
Heartbreak doesn't last It may seem like forever But soon you will shine
  "3-2-1" Happy New Year!  My ears were ringing from the sound  of cries as I fought my way through the crowd. On a dark sidewalk I stared as I could feel the time moving in the air. It was no longer 2016.  
You taught me that my body was for lease, that I was there for rent every time your "friend" kicked you out of your place, you signed our contract with rhymes cause you knew I've always had a thing for emcees, wanted to find love like Zeke and Myl
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,
The boy who played the Dad to my Mom in preschool. The one who looks like a Who from Horton Hears a Who, and shifts his eyes when we walk past each other on the Coca-Cola stained floor of our church.
I’ll never forget The day it all started. Driving home, I wasn’t excited to see you. I didn’t really miss you; Assuming it was nothing.   I’ll never forget The call to my best friend.
I traded my sorrows for a pretty face And a bottle I traded my sorrows for him And a cigarette to my lips My sorrows were replaced
Please don't dip your Chicken Nuggets in Ketchup Just seeing it makes me red. Nothing against your personal eating habits.  Just if you’re around me Please don't dump your Chicken Nuggets in Ketchup. 
I know better than me. I know that I should… I know that I shouldn’t  listen to it, it makes me soft, smooth.
ACT I The thing that shaped my year?   Well…it was not a what,   or a when, or a where,   or even a why…   It was a who.   But who…was this who?
My parents always warned me about the drugs on the street Never once did they warn me about the ones with brown eyes and can say, “I love you.”
Love is just a joke.  Nothing but lies written on a note. Hearts of pink and red, thoughts of roses on the bed. Torn apart, As if that note were my heart.   A note with x's and o's
How dare you Why are you doing this You promised You swore you'd be there I trusted you
I hate that I can'tdecide what we really areand I'll never know.
I know that you don't really care,but I'm here so you should deal with it.Just because you're avoiding my eyesdoesn't mean that I'll disappear.Just because you pretend that it doesn't hurt
I don't think you understandhow hurtful I am.I can't decideif you're ignoringwhat's obviously there,or just not seeing it.
No matter how much I try,I've failed to succeed.Every word I have spoken,is constantly breaking me.Ripping at my heart,tearing at my soul. I've told myself this is better,you won't get hurt this way.
I love you I replied. I wanted his future with mine. His carefully guided wisdom. His whole-hearted embrace. Imagine a life without.
I hide my face from you  in an attempt to forget the way your hand  perfectly in mine. You promised to never let go, but instead of using my hand to hold yours,
i feel like a shell; a phrase which doesn’t suggest i feel hollow.   a shell protects whats inside, but that isn’t to say that
Mary ached to see Joe with her, in the place the place that she once was. How they had been so close, and then it seemed like he was done.
 I lost myself. I lost myself when I stopped looking people in the eyes because all mine held was pain anymore and it hurt like hell to talk about it.  I lost myself when every weekend after that horrible night those bad habits took over and I mad
I try to stay positive but lately that just means gettin’ lit. What's easier rolling one or facing my problems? I'll tell you right now, happiness is halfway through the bottle.
I look in the mirror of the year and see him behind me. January started with a ring. White, blue, me, you. Curled together and sprinkled with glittering gems. As the snow melted I took courses in depression and numbness,
I went away from all things I knew. I changed my view on life, paid attention to the little things. I learned to appreciate the small gestures made by strangers walking by.    I left
Letting you in was like letting the alcohol rinse inside the alcoholic's mouth Dangerous, toxic, and satisfying You kept hurting me, taking advantage of the love I had given I was broken and used up
Tender hearts prepared for the unknown Wishful eyes seeing what's shown Anxious arms carrying weight of life Scared souls with love so rife Jubilant days like a child among the park
In the beginning, there was Us. Sometimes I thought that my smile would blind people, It burned so brightly for you. And nothing touched me more
          All I saw was loss At loss of words and feelings          But I am still here 
I have gained nothing but pain You destroyed every part of me, Now I am scared to feel All because of you.   I was thinking about the day we met
It was bliss in the start, it was only you I gave my heart to. You thought I was a fool, Now I don't know what to do.  It was you that I turned to to keep the pain away.
an illusion a mirage  of a soul i believed could intertwine with mine. to build a star,  and quite possibly contrive a piece of magic. But alas,  i cannot see
(Do You Still Love Me?)   How lucky these sheets would have been to know you.
I started out the year very unhappy.
So suspicious It makes me wonder I never ponder the situation we had because I trusted youSooner the truth will come And to someThey think I'm wrongBut I'm really tired singing the same song Been hear for so long trying to be strongBut that's not
I need you to do me a favor. I promise if you do this I'll stop annoying you. Look me in the eye and tell me you don't care about me. I need to hear you say it. Why? So I can let you go. No?
Heartbreak is the heartbeat moments Smiles fading into frowns When happy turns to sad In remembrance of a memory The longing to return
Icy like mint
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
I looked our old messages, and suddenly it all made sense. People don’t appreciate that kind of thing unless they understand it, and the only way you can understand it is through experience.
I look back at pictures of our childhood, sweet grass in the curls of your chocolate hair, bright silver eyes that pierce the soul, pale skin, sunburnt by the constant sun of summertime,  
I never knew how much it would hurt I assumed it was an innocent emotion How can such innocence Hold something so dark June 23, 2016 The day I first saw you The day I fell in love with Rose
I never knew how much it would hurt I assumed it was an innocent emotion How can such innocence Hold something so dark June 23, 2016 The day I first saw you The day I fell in love with Rose
I used to think that the everything would be fine if you left it alone. Nothing bad would happen, everything would fix itself in the end.
A new year meant a new start. The beginning was a blast,  and when that clock struck midnight everything was in the past.   When spring came around,  things began to change.
I wish I was harsh like the denial letter from a school. I wish I was bitter like a friend scorned. I wish I could sting even just half as bad as that whiskey you constantly down. I wish I was rough
There we were smiling We spoke 24/7 You were the first thing I woke up to and the last before waking up only to talk to you again.  You were here.   Here we are now. We never talk anymore.
Like the lukewarm sun on an inclement day, It dessicates the rain that falls from these eyes, The majestic star coruscates through the turbid storm, Lighting up the darkest thoughts from my mind,
 
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.
 Love Euphoric, Naive Beaming, Dreaming, Falling Team, People, Person, Withdrawal Yelling, Crying, Annulling Hysterical, Unfeeling
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  
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
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
he was so bright God, he was bright he made my skin burn when he touched it he made my heart race,  air so thick I couldn't get a breath like the hottest day of mid-July. yes, he was bright
Your name tastes sour now when I say it, And yes I fell in love, I have no shame to admit, I loved the things you said to me, you always called me amazing,
Love songs and empty words curled Around ideas of what love Should be, like horns that ram the unsuspecting, Shaking and shattering bones And all expectation of the
although i have not kept count of the amount of people who have walked out of my life, like a train leaving the station—fast, abrupt, all-at-once; i have kept count of the words that follow.  
I remember the taste of your lips, sweet,  and soft, reminding me of fluffy clouds, I didn't want to wash the taste of you from my mouth, I remember your arms wrapped around my waist,
You were sitting by a hotel pool, holding what looked like a margarita in your left hand and a lack of energy in your right. Your eyes were the second organs I lashed my gaze upon, your declinations being the first.
I hate the way I fell for you... slowly, then all at once, like you pulled me down into a deep trap and told me I could never leave unless you let me. Let me go... I can't be here anymore.
They say to us, "This generation knows nothing, they're only children, what do they know?" But they don't know the battles we've fought, the fear we faced, the weights on our shoulders.
The way you look into my eyes shows your hunger. You don’t want me. You want my body. When I see you my brain activates fight or flight.
When eyeliner smudges into sadistic mosaics of sorrow swept across the peaks of my temples, And mascara stains virgin white sclera black, That which peers back at me with sunken in eyes, Things of which sting:
 The breaking of the heart is the most painful when you think you've found the one, then they just walk our or your life like you were never nothing. The heart breaks when you lose someone you loved with your whole heart.
I know you exist. Please, drop this pretense. I feel my heart beat, Out from beneath my feet. I jump from my skin, You would be such a sweet, Sin. You held me To your chest.
You took me out on adventures all the time, knowing i had anxiety, saying it was fine. You didn't let my fears take over- every event was another step closer to feeling free from the anxiousness that was attached to me.
Her
Please fall in love with Her Love the glints of gold in Her eyes and how Her hair brushes across Her face Love what makes Her smile and laugh Learn Her quirks, Her dears, Her hopes, Her dreams  Hold Her close

He walks with a step more than man Bowing beneath the doorway of her room And when he speaks it replaces the air Like cigar smoke He urges her to sit as he lights the fireplace Though she is already hot  He stalks to her and his fingertips are rou
It’s always been terrifying to me… What could possibly lie underneath the serene rapids of the Gulf of Napoli Normally a peaceful town my family originated from.  
Sutures heal the wounded but doom the healthy Sutures are more than stitches and seams for injuries seems they can be for hearts too Sew your heart to mine
I am sorry, But you cannot look through these lens again My friend, I have seen it fall to the bitter ground The darkest tar, The sound still echoes within the carved halls of my heart.
Yes I am broken and bruised, Yes willingly, I love the abuse, Yes the nights are long There’s not enough distractions in the day, Yes the reasons to leave Outweigh the reasons to stay,
  Are you Still here I am Still here Waiting For you Still pure
I can only remember two times my heart skipped a beat from loving someone.
I want the ugly pictures back. I want them plastered on social media and loaded in your phone. I want the screenshots of every single snapchat or selfie back.
Today I saw you’re the books your favorite author wrote. I still have all those books you gave me sitting in a pile under a small blue table that you helped me build one day when my parents weren’t home.
If you see someone smile and it makes your breath stop, makes your brain forget what language to speak, run as fast as you can, because they’re sure to break your heart
A constant battle that never ends. It was so much easier being friends, bhtvthe love we had was hard to deny. Road blocks and mountain we couldn't defeat. I never understood why you didn't fight for me.
    I've got ice in my veins Fire in my heart My head begging for a reason   Fuck these thoughts The childish weakness breeding doubt like rabbits  
TEARS OF AN ADOLESCENT She was right there seated on the front roll with a broken heart in her hands dressed in her usual black lace this time with a sad face I could see the pain deep inside her soul
Love and Lies   The feeling in my chest, Is one I’ve felt before. All so easy to notice,
I'm sick I'm out of my head  
you always said the wrong thing at the wrong time  you told me it was because you didnt have a filter but i think it was because you didnt care i realized that trying to forget everything you said works
  Dear Brown Boy  Why are you so scared to let me in? Allow my honey kissed lips to graze upon your coco butter skin And effortlessly our two chocolate bodies will melt together
His eyes are grey like the sky. His smile as white as pearl. His mind, a mystery. He is my opposite. Cool. Calm. Collected. and crazy. I cannot love him. I want to but I cannot.
Just because someone is hurt once Does not mean they cannot Love anyone or anything again.   I picked up my first instrument When I was in the fourth grade. It was bigger than I was
I miss you. I never wanted to admit that, But I really miss you. You never told me the password for the PS4 And your Sly Cooper icon is Iconic. Heh, get it?
Do not assume I am in love with you. Do not think that my hands clenching the front of your shirt in tight fists, are clenched tight with the desire to pull you close. My hands are holding you because you are here.
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 am tired of being tethered to you, of being responsible for feelings that are not my own, results of your whims.  
it is different and it is not the same, because when music happens with you, the notes create stair steps up to places in the sky i have never been before.
  breathe out. i need a language with more
 synonyms for love
 that do not strike my ears like a slap or a secondhand 
sigh,
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,
they told me to rise
 with dawn, but i fade
 with every daybreak. maybe some are meant to live in darkness because
 shooting stars can only
i was not looking for love
 in all the right or wrong places— 
i was not looking at all.
 i could teach lifetimes on happily-ever-alone.

she examines the tallies on her arm—   a red one for each time she’s loved and lost.   one single black mark  
Pull me close.        Don't talk.  Listen to it,            It beats,  Growing stronger,            My heart.  Pumping blood,          Don't let me run.    Make me fight for you. 
So, i heard your name yet again, today. Yep. Still got that sour taste and rotten smell that lingers well after you're gone. Oh, fuck you. Wait. That's all you ever wanted. I’m suppose to forgive you.
In eighth grade, we had Science class together. You had sat in the row behind me until the seats were switched and we became partners. Do you know what I would give to be partners with you again?
I wish I kissed The hand that listened Emotions had overflowed beautifully Time uncovered my voice- Promise Song, I called it. Passion swept over me, and Then passion died
Once upon a time, He once looked at me in my chestnut eyes and told me I was beautiful He once said the only person that could set his soul on fire was me
You were my life and, my light. Then came that cold, dark night Now the only time i see your face is in the pictures of this old place Without you, i dont know what to do Why did this happen to you?
Just when I think i've had enough you pull me right back in, Oh, how your fingers on my skin are almost as sweet as your wicked kiss. Honey, why do you stay with her when you dream of me? No more, shall i wait for thee.
You're like my own personal drug, Addicive and intoxicating, You cast a spell on me, And I can never break free.   It's dangerous, And I know I should run,
Love is all a lie but just to me. Pain is the last thing that makes me cry. It's the only thing that makes me truly see. Everyone I've loved.....they can go die in a hole,
A key A lock A heart in a cage Escape full of love & promises Return broken & tarnished Back in the cage Locked away Key thrown to the side Never escaping again.
no pain is felt when all is painaching only lasts so longand then it’s replaced by a hole you cannot seea hole you cannot feel
You are the best thing to ever  happen to me...   but I just want to tell you  all my secrets and keep you in all my journals...  
This is our growing point, where we actually start our lives. We plan out our futures as if we're reading them out of a story book:
I used to tell myself I hated you. I would whisper it under my beath when you walked by and scream it until my lungs ached in the rain. I would write it on my skin and on paper until your name stained everything precious to me.
I’ve been lonely lately, in a steady state of decay, feeling like I’m not really living, just killing time.   My body is shipwrecked, too much water in my lungs, too many cracks
If I may be honest, I don't feel much  anymore. There are things, far and few between that cause a twinge in my heart. A wilted flower, a father's embrace, a lover's prayer,
It's the color of fire as it dances in the wind, alone. It's the hue of her lips as she leaves a trail on his neck, like a sentence that will never be finished. It's the color that rushes to your fingertips
Let's play a game, shall we? Let me vester into your mind,  Hear your every thought. Now tell me, what scares you? I'm pretty aware that it scares many others too.  Deep into your mind I wonder, 
And as I look back at who I used to be And what we used to have I realize that we will never be the same. I am a shattered human and you are an unbothered god. "I love you", I whsiper
***This was written during a dark part of my life and don't worry I am totally fine now and these thoughts are no longer a part of my mind***
This boy is one for the history books  
I hope you're happy.. But I also hope you miss me 
Salt is an accessory, not to be consumed aloneBut, salt is bitterShrewd white crystals that should be used in moderationBut I ate too muchClumps grasp at the walls of my throat
  I know what it’s like to fall in love and this is not it i used to have foggy glassesand titchy skin that wrinkled in all the right spotsand a burdensome nose and a wacky smile cocked to the side with thin lips
she will indeed -but she has not yet- be all you need -for you’ve not met- in times of crisis -she wasn’t here- she’s the nicest -don’t blame her dear- she sticks around
    You're one so heartbreakingly beautiful her hands have yet to stop aching for the feeling she once knew. § it's been months.
She told me to set you ablaze. Not in the way you did my heart, no.Nothing near as deadly. She told me to just kill you. So I did.
I like the smell of cigarettes, gasoline, and your cologne. I like the sight of green hills, library shelves, and your laughter filled eyes.
In that moment, I knew you understood me. In that moment, I knew you knew my pain. In that moment, I knew you saw how much I loved you... Because that's how much you were loving someone else.
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. 
You’re not a poet And for that I’m glad But still your words drip like honey Your lie sings like a promise And like a musician
I have no outlet You are a tyrant I feel like dying Does it matter than I'm crying You do not love me You always retreat I want to escape I badly want to get away Why do I love you
I never thought we'd end up this way, I never thought our love would never be the same, But our immaturity came into play. I always have to remind myself that you're not the only person in this world, and I forget that you're no person to mold. At
I know you just didn't throw away what we had. I know you just didn't abandon me just cause things got bad. I know you just didn't turn your back because I made you mad.. Well truth is, we both are sad. And after all those times I needed you, But
today you've stopped looking through me  finally deciding to see me  we'll journey through the cycle  meet. converse. become friends. best friends.
Lately all I've wanted to do is to be able to rewind timeAnd go back to when I could sleep in your warm embrace.If the ultimatum were that everything played out the same
As words crawl up and out of my throat My fingers desperate to find the right note Heart as heavy as lead but fragile as glass Watching the ceiling fan, waiting for it to pass The nausea the fatigue
It was like a candle being blown out: you leaving. My world has been dark before (it always has), but At least I had a little flame to give me hope back then.
You promised me Wonderful, glorious things.   You promised me A white house,  With not-blue shutters,  A pond out front,  And horses in the back   You promised me 
If you ask me of love  I will tell you that it is enigmatic That you will feel it in the trenches of your soul And in the most lofty places of your mind
Cold crisp air slicing my lungs with every breath Socks wet from the soggy ground, Feet aching, becoming numb Everything shivers with cold January hurts  
For all the pain and the nights that I cried For all the tears For the fights For all the times that you used me Because you played with my heart Why don't you f**k you?
If we had world enough, and time, we'd ditch this town and get lost in this beautifully dangerous realm. The beaches and woods do not overwhelm, and enters the chance to explore.
Her
She was my friend. Blonde, green-eyed, Fair skinned and delicate. She was perfect in more ways then one. And I fell for her.   She was a flower, Beautiful and dainty.
As each day goes by there is not a hour I am not thinking about you I can't even type this poem without tears forming in my eyes Why did you have to do me the like that?
Last night I had the misfortune of seeing you in my dreams you looked at me with your sad eyes that gleamed then the clouds began to cry
I will join you The shackles on my wrists Are made of gold And my eyes are glass As you drag a razor across your wrists
1. When I first saw you, I didn't set my eyes on yours but instead observed your saunter from behind as you made your way into the crowd of people. I should have known something was up with you, I mean who wears brown leather jackets anymore. 
Part One:I am a destroyerDestroy herDestroy himDestroy them Destroyer of worlds of multifarious dimensions.
He made everything better I don’t know how he did it and I don’t think he did either He could help me through anything
I love you terribly so. My biggest fear would be seeing you go.
You really think I care that you have messed up? I know about your reputation, I know about your past. And really, that doesn't change anything,  Because you are still you. And for some reason,
everything i dois always done better.and i understand--why you'd rather choose her. 
I remember last winter, You said it'd be alright. I looked in your eyes for warmer weather, But then the fire turned to ice.   What we once had, it was burning, But now, the flame has gone away.
Cut
Cut   Unguardedly courteous; Uncourteously oblivious. To specify the love -- a fool's.   Who knows what they were thinking? What they felt? What they meant?  
I try to find you in everyone. certain laughs, places, walks, store fronts, forgotten jokes, left over french fries, dusty books, but they’re only parts of you.
I was ten years old the first time I ever visited Washington. I loved it. Two years later, I met a boy who called it home. I loved him. My face was the Washington sky.
I first started writing poetry when I first started getting confused in our society, you have to use money: fine all things must die: alright you are unhappy more often than most people: ok
Saying too much is regretful.Saying too little is poignant. But what is it when you feelyou've  done both at the same time?There are words left on my tongue,shards of sentences I'll never utter
Stop acting like he abused you. You're the one who calls him worthless every single day. Quit acting like you're all he has. We all know his friends and family love him very much.
Since you left I have changed. I feel like crying over every little thing, I swallow tears when I drop a book I haven’t said much to my friends lately
I thought about you then I wanted to fight for you I didn't want it to end I thought about you then I wondered how you were doing, I meant to call, to tell you that I missed you
The shades of black and white appealed to me Like a thief finding comfort in the shadows The feeling of ink in my hands felt like home Like the familiar arms of a lover  
I remember you as something remarkable A silver lining in the string of grey.Yet you tugged the endings of my nerves until it broke.And my body paid dearly for
I need you to promise me you'll pick up the pieces of my heart that are broken, for I am afraid that if too many pieces are lost, I'll lose myself completely,
There is nothing worse than betrayal, because it signals the end of a friendship. You claim I betrayed you, but I did no such thing. After all, I'm not the backstabber. I'm not the trash talker. I'm not the cheater.
I wanted himHe wanted herFeelings are still deep within my heartAs I lay in bed thinkingThinking about our conversationsThinking about how in love I amThinking about the betrayal
I lost myself. Why? Why do you do this to me? Constantly blinding my eyes, clouding my mentality, forcing my heart to beat faster. Why? Why do you allow this to happen?
A gun went off people were hurt or worse- killed A gun went off all because the shooter didn't like who they loved.   My heart goes out to all those who've suffered
there is a face behind my face-- there is a frown  behind my smile--   there is a life beyond this hell-- there is a place that does not wait--   the ribs that stick
Darkness envelops me from that speck of light that I aimed to reach for Parents didn't believe in my depression and marked it off as "wants for attention"
I see youI see your strength and your charm.And that smile that makes daylight jealous.I see the outlet of your frustrations in the valleys of your triceps.I've memorized the divots in your lips as they approach mine.I hope this is how I will reme
Yes has served me the great fall Of the last one that gave me life With my sadness fall the rose Cutting my wings Je t'adore I adored you With the stupidity of your wings You`re my love of pacotille
She dressed in all black, with the most colourful mind. Questioning the universe about how beauty is defined. Is it not strange that autumn is so beautiful, yet everything is dying?
sun rising, yeast baking in the soiled sheets. froth of your love like latte lattice stuck to the brim of my tongue. bric-a-brac baby, midas touch, gold sheen of betrayal in morning love. 
today i saw the trees bloom. i saw their buds unfurl, miniature fingerlings reaching into the world, and i-i forgot about how you made me feel. i won’t let you off that easy, no, 
leave me be let me see for myself the cruelty  i know you supposedly didn't mean to hurt me so why am i sitting here with my heart bleeding and these tears streaming let down and left down i lay praying
It’s funny, when asked by most, one would assume the hardest part of heartbreak is blame: the reason, who to blame, and what it entitles. For me, it was the when.
A threadbare silence wraps itself Around my hearing, Stopping the sounds that Have submerged my skin and It replaces the noises with My own hammering thoughts   Though I beg for 
Dove dark chocolate,  One of the purest enjoyments in life   Foil bends and crinkles as I relish the moment in which  I open the clearanced Valentine Which was somehow abandoned
I realised, in light of          the way you came and went, When breaking up with someone you love,           the last thing you want is consent.
Every girl that I have dated has a little bit of you in her.
My feelings for you have not changed since day one When we first met in 6th grade I knew that what I felt was real Even after we went our separate ways My feelings for you will never sway
The sky exposes my melancholy and distress, I won't be the girl next to you in a white dress. Why did you ruin our dreams? Perhaps it was a nighmare in reality and woke you up in screams.  
Time is valuable  It is not malleable I cannot change it  But use it like money, I can only spend it   I took the time to discover And the rumors I had to uncover
Black pain of love is what I already have Is pain green Yellow Purple Blue Golden Gray White were my destiny when I loved you Pain Violet Orange Dark-Blue So red the blood of the disintegration of my soul
Loving thoughtlessly  
One less inquiry   
Beatings, bruising, cuts and scars Smiles to hide the pain Wishing on a shooting star That I could fly away   Heartbreak, tears, screams and cries Hidden day by day Covered up with laughter
As my unattainable love sat handsome in my head,  I dreamt of the could haves, and poetry, I read. The classics inspired me -- like Browning and Donne, Eliot and Plath and Shakespeare and Young. 
As I gaze into his eyes I can tell the difference between your warmth and his. I compare his love and yours And that’s when I realized
you are the reason the ancients worshiped the sky.someone so beautiful could not have come from the dirt of the Earth,you were born in the aftermath of a supernova. you have galaxies blooming inside of you
Hand me a pair of scissors I’ll cut the steel ropes That led straight to your heart At least I’ll try If only I could get closer to you That end of the rope is the thinnest
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.
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,
i used to be every girl in every song you heard i used to pollute your mind and populate your world but it's not okay anymore and you don't want me there the way you did before
i called you babe last night in a dream you stuttered but said love what do you need? and made me your heart and i felt whole again by being just yours every hair on end you took my hand
    To the boy who loves her next,   Please know that she’s really fragile.  She’s far too sensitive,  but that gives you a reason to hold her  and tell her everything is gonna be okay  
Liquid crystal, a crystal harder and more beautiful than any diamond. The smell or iron filled her nose, The thin red lines inflating like small red balloons, The pain tasted like immature bitter melon,
so many emotions my body can't contain  continuously being suffocated like an un-oxygenated flame if someone would put me out how grateful i would be for my emotions--never ending--are shifting like the trees
People say, “No pain. No Game.” That somehow we must Commit pain for the game. Why must feel The grief, the ache, the discomfort Be the counterpart to The match, the sport, the struggle
After having my heart completely cut in half My life was woe I didn't know What my purpose in life Was anymore I couldn't see what there Was to look forward to I was a robot just walking
As I was staring up at the skies the wind blew you right through my mind I looked at the gaps between my fingers and realized your hands would fit perfectly into mine
It's very strange, The way some things change As it all goes by so fast and our poor hearts hardly ever last. You were a part of my happiness
I've got the scars on my heart to prove my pain After this I will never be the same You say I only have me to blame But you, the liar, should feel ashamed I've got scars on my heart to to show why I cry
5:35 am Here I am Searching  I know not what I'm looking for But I know I need to find something 6:17 am Here I am  Took one notification  To know what I'd hoped I'd find
If you had asked me a couple months ago the question “What is the one thing or one person you could not live without,” I would have answered, without hesitation or doubt in my mind.   I would have told you it was him.
all i need is you, my dear. i need to feel the waves of your love. seeing you was like going to the beach, though i always said i wouldn't go in the water, i always did, and when i did, i'd never leave.
Painful yet joyous, Love can cause smiles and tears. It's what we live for.   Can't live without love? Love gifts you to feel alive; while risking heartbreaks.
you,  with your dark brown hair and your green eyes made me feel  like i was the only girl in the world and you the only boy and yet why, oh why
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.
i am not a hotel. don’t pack your bags only to stay a week or twodon’t come to me only when you need somewhere to get away from everythingi am not a hotel.i am a home.let me be your home.
Tea
I drink it to rememberthe night that we first met,for the many nights there after,for the nights you'll soon forget. Remembrance of there was,but more importantly what might have been,will never stopped these fantasiesfrom running in my head  You
Tell her that you can't promise that you'll remember her favorite color- but that you'll remember the experiences you've had together   tell her that you will always remember  the butterflies you got whenevr she was around
They ask me what I could never do without and I am tempted to say a name or a place But I realize now what I could not survive without
I wish this were reality that love is kindness, If you knew that I feel the soul fly that your face and your mouth make me fall in love more and more. Distances were then that banned me to love you,
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, 
Hello my love every day I'm losing the essence of your love, in me I saved the secrets of your love and of yesterday. Why did you leave? why did you leave me here, my heart and my mind are coldly petrified,
It has always struck me as odd, the idea that “loving you” and “losing you” are only one letter apart. This small difference is proved
To say I depended on you would be an understatement. I was addicted to the way we were. To say you were my everything would be an understatement.
I don’t live in the light I am consumed by darkness My heart is shattered My mind is fragmented What more can I do?   I can’t save myself The only person who stood with me Has left…
“I should've smashed it… I should've smashed it…” A savage smile graced her face in insane glee Pacing back and forth Heart racing Thud-dump...thud-dump... Trickles of crazed laughter dripped from her lips
You
I knew I had it bad, when they asked what I would need if I was stranded on a island, and the first thing I thought of, was your blue eyes instead of water. Isn't that sad?  
Cold as the glaciers that gather around the attic waters into the eyes of a girl long gone it hurts on the inside worse than anything Do you get that feeling? staring at the night sky
I draw my smile on with ease, with lipstick as red as your cheeks, when you read the words “I like you more than I’d care to admit”  
I still think about you every day I see you in the halls your hair is a fiery red now perhaps you've moved on and are flaunting your tenacity you wore converse today so did i
And this is just another poem, One of many, About you. Your elusive ways and how you make me wonder How you can hide your emotions So well. Or not have any left at all.
We were never together and you broke my fucking heart. Our lips never touched But I can still feel them hovering near mine. Our relationship was weird, but nothing we couldn’t handle.
Love, What is this thing we call love? Does it even exist? Some say it does, Others will say it doesn't! Do we really have to go through such horrible heartbreaks to find true love? Do we have to make ourselves feel so horrible to find that one pe
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?
Daddy what's wrong? Why aren't you strong? What's going on?   Daddy I'm crying. Please don't be dying. Just keep on trying   Daddy don't be afraid  We'll all come and stay,
Every few years you show up in my life Whether it be in person or in a distant memory When I hear someone mention your name I am transported to the old, abandoned beach
I closed my eyes and I saw you lying next to me You were so close that I could reach my hand over and caress your sleeping face The soft breathing held a steady pace as you dreamed
Wet cheeks, Lonley night, A heart filled with pain A mind on the verge of going insane A smile with sore cheeks A soul that feels so weak Eyes that hold back tears Lips that lie due to fear
"Why do you love me?" I ask.You reply with many reasons,some of which being how  When I talk about my favorite book,I always obsess over the characters and my eyes take on a whole new formas big as dinner platesand they sparkle like the fourth of
Well I had that damn dream again. The one where you come back. You show up at my house,  dressed to the nines with roses in your hand.
you left me bleeding you left me crying you left me screaming  out for you save me  save me  you left me here you left me alone i learned to breathe with you now my hearts stone
Perhaps she was too good to be real Left to tempt But never to materialize. All good things are temporary, All but the stars. Even when the moon disappears Those twinkling orbs glow on,
It is not the ocean I see in her eyes, But the radiant Moon, The contellations that define our galaxy, And the Sun we endlessly revolve around. She is infinite, Lost in herself as I long to be.
He ripped out her heart  And left her lying on the sidewalk A single tear rolled out her eye and slowly swam down cheek She didn't know why She didn't feel her emotions  being torn apart  
Dear First Love,     I was so scared of messing everything up that I ruined it all anyway.   You were so good to me, but I didn’t treat you the same, and I missed my chance.
            When there are nights             I can’t sleep or             when my mind strolls             and ponders             against the wall,             I want nothing more than
I’m one step closer to becoming moonless. Pupils engulfed oil black seas without her, but not the day her hand warmed a limp soul, and when we first made love on a cold night.
Its been 10 years without,  I don't want to be without, All the things I've done, Started high school without But I know you see me, All the things I've done,  With me the whole time,
Sometimes I feel like, We are on the same page.. Sometimes I'm not so sure, I try to give rather than take... It's hard... But will get used to it!!   Wishing for the feelings to be reciproced,
I found his wicked smile so alluring Black and blue dreaming  Victim of pure deceit But your love's pristine Divine empowering   I missed you Your touch and embrace
She was a strangerI admired her from afarThe most beautiful person I'd ever seenBut too afraid to say a word-She was a new friendAn optimistic person tooWho brought sunshine to my life
Somewhere down the road we took a wrong turnWe became curious of our Cheshire cat smilesand we fell down the rabbit holeWe got lost in each other's world of fantasy and illusions
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
Yeah bitch screw you too... I hate the word love straight up So to the bitch who ripped my heart out wassup Tell me how’d it feel with the other guy?
Him
You promised you wouldn’t leave me Counting down the days till we met in real life 27th came and all we had were hours left 7 hours felt like months
she looked at him with eyes  so suprised that his being could hold her whole world to feel his skin against hers in fear she'd ruin the anatomy of the stars
I'm sorry I'm sorry that I have ever cursed at you  I'm sorry that I have made you cry  I'm sorry for every black eye you gave me  I'm sorry for every time I said "Please, Stop, No." 
A little girl with a neatly tied bonnet eagerly gathers the strawberries. She rejoices the growing collection in her pail.   Except the little girl is a young woman now.
She was like vanilla and chocolate swirl, she was the best of both worlds. Beautiful and smart, did her part and played it smart.
Lungs collapsed like buildings in the aftermath of an earthquake A ripple spreading through bones and veins The pulsations of a heart reduced to a stutter A mere flutter And things are falling And crashing
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?  
The light in your eyes when you talked about her could light up the whole world for a million and one years
i am in love with the memories of being in love with good morning texts and good night lullabies
Here you are A hole in my heart Waiting for the gum To fill up inside   Friendly fire In the game of hearts
If happiness had a face It would be yours If love had a face It would be the way I look at you   If fate were real Would we be together? If the stars aligned Would they pair us?  
It's sad when the perso you care about most is the same person who rips out your heart rips it out and just....just...breaks it... she fooled me into believing believing she actually cared
I’m the girl with the Ink stained hands from So much writing But you wouldn’t notice because You’re so far away and you Only know what I tell you and You’re oblivious to everything else
Sitting in the comfort of her chair And listening to the sounds of the breeze There is no disparity She can now see things with clarity You have left her all alone She is sadly dazed and confused
You don't cross my mind. You live in it. You occupy my every waking thought and leave room for nothing else. You tiptoe upon the edges of my dreams and walk just out of reach of my eyesight.
Girl, there is no reason For you to be there Haven't you had enough of his abuse Just remove yourself from bad air The longer you stay there Darkness is what you will continue to find
we'd go out in the city after one of your shows makeout in the parking lot of some drug store   you'll write a song about it  and my eyes and your drugs and how it makes you feel alive
Remember that Friday night when we drove my little sister’s silver Impala to Little Clear Lake on winding gravel roads
My skin, the cover of my soul’s pages, is soft leather binding, knitted together  by the Expert Craftsman, protecting secrets from            
Girl, it really is sad That he left you standing in the cold He often treated you as if you were nothing He sadly did not realize that you have a heart of gold It is a shame That he treated you that way
Girl, look at the way at how you are being treated But, you stay by his side You just let yourself go As if you do not have any pride You do everything for him But yet, there is zero appreciation
Instead ofbeing the onewho hurts,Becomes the onegetting hurt. Embrace, this is me.No.
Consider her gone Because, she cannot trust you She gave you everything But, you never appreciated anything Her heart was there She was always sincere Walking away from you
I've never liked my bed With you in it it is warm and comforting to feel your skin on mine My bed makes your absence felt I'm colder I am less sure of what space my body should claim
Do not play with a girl's heart or even worse her heartstrings because if you are not careful you may mistake her heartstrings as the most beautiful of instruments and make music resounding in the acoustics of her soul
Tell me you hate me Or Tell me you love me Either way, I can't stand the truth
I use to love dreaming about you Because it was the one moment I could see you again So vividly I could feel the butterflys, so realistically your embrace would engulf me Dreams about our forever, how we could be
Although brown eyes are darker than blue eyesI had never found such madness beforeIn those with more pigment than your own skiesIt was not something that I could ignore  
A while ago, my heart broke. It didn’t disappear, it just broke. Now that I look back, I realize that it probably could have been fixed. Back then. 
Opposites attract. For some people that’s a beautiful twist, the yin to their yang. But what happens when you’re a person who feels too much? All the emotion, intense and passionate.
I fell in love in three days. In three days, I felt emotion radiating from your eyes as you gazed down into my own, softly cradling the edges of my heart as I foolishly let my guard down.     
A tinted red rose grazes my cheeks when I think of the time that you licked your lips after kissing me when I asked you why, you said you could still taste me. It was delicately beautiful and disturbing all at the same time,
You always told me I reminded you of red roses And suddenly I’m nine years old Dirtying my favorite white dress in a garden I’d sneak out to Picking petals off of sunflowers
  Pull heartstrings while you pull Hamstrings, Make me feel your presence in it's entirety.   Lungs aren't full enough for you to linger this long, but I don't care if you don't, and
  I am every bit as pathetic as the paper in my mouth.   The paper that will very soon become a topic of discussion among my friends;      Wondering why my hands now smell like anxiety,
He
He said he wanted a kiss, so I gave him my love. He said he wanted that, so I gave him this He said he would never ever leave, yet I'm all alone. Because he always wanted and I gave more.
If you're happy then i have to be, Because I left your side to see you be. If you like it then i love it, Because i walked away so you could show it. If you're fine then i'm well,
you
They say Fire is a deadly thing because it can burn you they say knives are dangerous because they can cut you they say drugs are bad because they screw with your head
  We passed the field by my house, Where you used to say sorry; Words never held meaning for you Without smoke kissing lips.   I never should have. I waited too long didn't I honey?
There was a boy that I loved. The way he looked at me made all of my problems disappear. The way his lips felt against mine, made time stop around us.
    RIP to all of the people that I killed 
some say that hell is an eternal looping of your most awful memory. I do not believe that hell is a place. Hell is my mind. My mind replays the scene over and over, the same outcome each time.
Where is it? I've missplaced it once again. I'm looking for the threads, and the needles and the numbness. Oh... Nevermind about the numbness. The trails are getting foggy, I'm lost.
(written 1/25/2015) there’s always coffee in my veins and music in my ears because i can't stand the thought of not having you and
Incantation Red By: Ashlyn Narvaez   Let the anger leave my body Cast a spell upon the words Let the trauma lift above me Create a haunting with its curse  
so sweet so damn sweet all loving cuddle craving and then romance and those hot times you made be feel good about myself but I don't think you feel good about yourself  
I am enticed with the majestic fluidity of your fingertips, tugging at my strings so that my skirt twirls and billows around me in a mannerism that only romance could suggest. And the smell of your cologne entices me
the love song hangs unspoken, there for you to steal from my lips as you stole my heart. and now there’s nothing that I would not do: I’d barter, kill, and for your love I’d starve.
Enticed by her lustful allure The Casanova had to stare His next conquest, he was so sure She’d concur to a night’s affair She said “You’re broken. I’ve no cure. No magic treatment down below.”
Once upon a time babe I was color blinded Lost what mattered the most to me But perhaps with you I'll find it   Lost myself in your eyes Maybe one..two..three..or four times
His kiss was of goldStaining her lips with the markOf innocence lost. His fingertips leftGilded prints, painted on herLovely face with care. Polished AdonisThough he was, the sun cannotShine on forever.
Why do you push me away When all I want to do is help? Please let me help take care of you, Since you cannot yourself. You used to be so kind to me, Now you won't let me in. I can't win.
Think of you Puts me at risk An avalanche just waiting Waiting to happen   Let me think Of stealing a kiss Something innocent, Saying goodnight Maybe a bit more  
I love the way you lied to me With every word spoken you blinded me And at that moment I believed That hope was finally there to comfort me I thought that I would feel so free
They are all carbon copies Were my polariod kisses too permanent for you? Too much of a constant reminder That I helped you grow from darkness That you cannot delete  Memories of chest on breast because
I press my fingers against a blank screen, once an image of your face now dissolving in my memory tears shatter as it hits the floor. You wrote your name on my palms 
Angel My Angel, Stop flying, Stop searching, Stop remembering. What you're flying for, Isn't worth it. What you're searching for, Isn't there. What you're remembering,
It's giving wholeheartedly and not receiving You pour into someone else and they don't pour back into you Leaving you empty With a bottomless void to fill The empty void hurts Such major change so quickly
Would you walk with me in the evening sun? Through the hardwoods as they give way to the fall. Lean into me under this canopy of color. I can feel your heartbeat, it races as we press tightly together.
Rain on me, why don't you world Break my heart and give me peril Falling rain, like teardrops from my eyes Soak me in tragedy and pain Take it back, you can't 
As I walked out one damp night, reflecting neon lights, breathing in the heavy smoke, and breathing out my life.   Cracking earth beneath my feet,
When you look at someone you care for, you do not see their imperfections; you do not see their mistakes all you can see is the glorious light that they cast on you,
The air is stiff, as if the wind is holding its breath,  and there is a coolness to the air, soothing, calming, peaceful. The grass is soft from where I'm sitting, as if inviting me to stay and enjoy the moment.
You were the ray of sun that shone through my window with the early light of dawn and I merely the speck of dust drifting by caught in your luminescence Illuminated by your glow, feebly dancing to catch your attention
First Date He gave me his hand. He gave me a ride home. He gave me a kiss.   Valentine's Day He gave me chocolates. He gave me roses. He gave me a teddy bear.   Birthday

We burnt out. Our flourishing romance withered away  leaving us both as ashes of the people we once were.  Without our vessels, we touch. Our ashes attempt to replicate our bodies,
It was you But it was I It was us together we were unstoppable Black and white Then life It was just a dream Blue and clear Reject and hurt I cried a river For it was a dream
For every white car I see the memories come flooding back
I am laying in the same bed, my head on the same pillows that caught my tears when I was fifteen
You were my second chance or so I thought
I want you to think of me in black and white
             He called me a hopeless romantic. He said that I was naïve for wanting someone to love me like the sun loves the moon, And he turned up his nose when I said that I wanted kisses like the stars because they are
SeptemberOne year ago I looked at you and sa
Why do I avoid you?   Is it because I hurt still, because that old scars never heal?   No, it's not that.   Is it because you killed me?  
There once was a woman full of life and love. She still exists somewhere high above. During her trek through life itself, she fell ill; for a cure, doctors did delve.
He knew he had lost her when she quit returning his messages when she quit striving to protect him when she stopped sneaking smiles at him when she stopped stealng glances at him in the halls
Give me an inch I will take a mile   While your soul in my tether We shall dance, the lover's dance   My soul shall sparkle and daze For you gave me a inch
Tear my heart Rip my soul   A knife kinder No greater judges   Half truths and lies they part my soul    Distribute such abroad
Grieves Grieves the soul Grieves the heart Tarry not fool Tarry not heart Grieves Grieves each thought Grieves the mind Tarry my soul
When a heart breaks, the guy is blamed.  When the guy breaks, the side chick is blamed.  When the side chick is blamed, the girl is seen as not good enough. 
Erik, I understand In dark slain Erik, I feel your pain Hold my broken soul Only you can know Erik, pass this life In darkness, I love you Ugly Erik, poor Erik
And now you're gone, Just like a petal torn off a flower after a gust of strong wind. The wind of life carried you away while you were still sweet.. Goodbye. Your aroma still lingers, lavender.
If tears are only saltwater streaks, then my heart must be as wide and deep as the ocean and just as rough and salty.  The waves are crashing  against me, but I only feel numb now.  
I shouldn't have listened to what everyone was saying. I shouldn't have doubted what I didn't have in writing. I knew deep down that they were wrong,
All I see are memories of your silohoutte I remember the day you left Like it was yesterday You said you couldn't resist her And Ma and I  Couldn't overlook the fact that Everytime you came home
that was the day  that i saw her knew her   that was the day that she taught me love   this was the day that we fell to pieces   this was that the day that she 
When I was younger, I used
My heart left where we would meet
      Do you know what i'm about to do? As I bend over and tie my shoe.
Weary bird with fleeting breaths and stumbling steps; your wings twisted with your disposition as you fell through tree tops and met me in this collision.
I walk across the bridge as the cars pass my side and underneath me.
So long has happiness has cursed my eye; watching couples and families happily go by.
I looked at my watch it was 12am, a mirror caught my eye and then, I saw crow's feet perched on each eyes flank, a long grey beard and my eyes had sank, I looked so old but felt so young, 
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
When you go into an emergency room they always ask you a series of questions.
I hope one day you wake up and accidentally make her coffee the way I use to like it without thinking 
"For the longest time I didn't think you broke me.
You asked me where it hurt  And I wanted to say  Everywhere, and,  Does it ever bother you that  No matter how tightly our bodies press together 
I often confused the word love With caution- They sounded the same to me and I learned early on That broken hearts are a crime scene,
Turn around for a bit, Im gonna drive us insane a little bit. I need you let my voice guide you, Touch yourself wherever I say to. Start off by your hair, A sandy blonde a natural color thats rare.
Friends with benefits What's the benefit When I'm falling in love And you're looking down from the cliff
We all want to be heartless.We all want to walk through this world and feel no pain.Have no demons on our backs.
I fell in love with an artist.
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
You
Some nights I just wish
I write letters to you daily.
The sun has rose and so have I, And without hesitation I turn to your side, You're still not there its hard to breathe, I close my eyes and wish it was a dream. But it's time to get up let's get ready for the day,
When I was born in 1971, she was a great mother right from the start.Mom was a warm and caring person because she had a good heart.Her heart was as big as the East Coast.Her death really hurt me because we were so close.
Come with me my love come let's run away, Give me even just an hour of your busy day. I promise I won't bite I promise I won't cry, Just give me one last chance before we say good bye.
I want to bite my tongue off, even in silence, I somehow say the dumbest things, The world, you, are too pretty for me to ever wish, that my breath may touch you
You ripped out my heart and threw it at my feet. You told me I lost my mind, that’s not really fair. You listened as it slowly thumped its last beat.
I wanna taste.
Complications are starting again,
Have you ever loved someone so much you'd do anything and everything? I have tried to avoid the memories but there are days they still knock the wind out of me. Sometimes when I cant sleep you suddenly cross my mind,
HE'S USING ME. 
He lights a cigarette. He lights it and inhales its toxin. He looks at me with eyes that’s full of pain. He inhales his way to death and tells me that I’m the one he would’ve died for.
Sometimes loving someone requires patience sometimes loving someone requires care, Sometimes being away from someone doesn't mean you're not there. It's a daily necessity like living on fresh air,
  I met this guy  and I must say  I wish I never met him  cus he's the biggest loser  that I know  from his smooth chocolate skin 
I am heartbroken And I am meant to be See my heart was made for breaking Muscle needs tears to strengthen Pain made made me who I am And it hurts me so much to leave
He had haunting light brown eyes,
The horizon is wherethe sun caresses the bayin the final momentsbefore the world turns grey.What a tragic affair;not being able to stay,then distress in agony hence
The monster took over his mind. Leaving him with nothing but the thought of drugs. Everyday I lose more and more sight of him. Standing here by myself with no way to help. The monster became more important than me.
She told you She trusted you She fell in love with you But you like someone else She knew it She didn't want to believe it She fell in love with you She told you
I cared about your soul. I wanted you. You made me happier than I had ever been. No one noticed me like you did. Sure, I wasn't interested in you at first, but you kept trying. And you tried and tried...
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,
It began as a shadow, Flowing in the rays of the sun, Hidden behind a meaningless form,
You can never forget the way it burns, the way your chest feels like its on fire, your heart consumed by sorrowful flames.
At this time, 2 months ago exactly, you kissed me for the first time. And kissing someone never felt so right or so real. I thought we were meant to be, meant to last.
Dreams are just DreamsUntil you make them soarA Wish is just a WishUntil you fight to make it happen
Tell me, was it all in vain?
I could imagine us all alone Hand in hand, just me and you
I’m falling to pieces From these full-moon musings I kept a journal Stayed up all night   You promised one day But I wanted forever Save your sorries
Maybe I embarrass you.
He loved me through echoes.
Misused, abused and left sitting confused Disrespected & rejected
    This one is dedicated to The sons and daughters whose existence Depends on three simple words: Get. Over. It. It being them, them causing grief,
Do you ever shower
Alas; woe to my eyes--    Let them not see.   The object of my affection   Cares not of me.  
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
I've aligned my mind, body and soul in perfect syzygy:   The Moon is my mind, projecting a faint glow in the darkest of places, which still remains a mystery to even myself  
I don't know what color his eyes are. I know that they're somewhere between blue and green and gray but I cannot say exactly   I have memorized every detail of him. I could map out his chest and 
Why do I fall for you For a love that is so untrue
I am stuck In a pot of country stew: Bubbles as thick as petals,
What does it mean  To love yourself first?   Well, loving yourself means
You gave me lovely roses,           And so I never peeled their petals.
Heart speaks
Raving recognition increases terror
Two world collide in the quietest way
You promised me the world, and only after my heart was shattered and my chest was empty did I realize that you kept your proimse.
The days are now dark not because the sun sets at 5:30 but because it's been an eternity since we've​ spoken those 3 words out of emotion and not habit.
Today I went through my poems and threw out everything I ever wrote about you Yesterday, I would have cried
Maybe it was the way you talked Or maybe it was the way you walked Maybe it was those moments you looked in my eyes and told me im beautiful Maybe it was the lies you told that kept me interested 
Love is a cannibal chewing on the bones
The War   (monolouge) Damn  I just wanna Drink and forget It's hope and regret  If I sip
And in the end we were Better off without each other. My epiphany about my Unhappiness while i was with You, caused me to see it so.
Hurt me twice, shame on me, Right? What about the 6th time? Am i complete idiot by that Definition? Am i hurting myself And knowing that i'm doing so?
All this time i thought we Were playing childhood games. You were the husband And i was the wife, tending To all the loving children we Bore together. We knew This was all make believe .
 “Go with your gut feeling."    I don’t feel anything   Except the heat from my brain Coupled with the pain of thinking of him Cause I can’t, Won’t let myself stop thinking of you
  I don't believe in them Especially when people play the roles I'm sleep, thinking I’m dreaming them   I met a boy and asked him what he thought of our relationship
loving you is a cancer to my soul
I don’t want you to
Don't fall for a girl like me. I'm warning you now and I assure I'll warn you again. My loves the kind of wretched feeling that can't leave you be. I'll make you feel as if you are nothing but tin.
You loved me. That was okay. I made you wait For another day.   Then I loved you. And it was sweet. But we were young. It was a two-way street.   We grew apart.
one of the scariest things that i ever came to realize was that it was my natural instinct to kill what i found to be more beautiful than anything else. no one pays it any mind when it's just a flower.
Floating, bubbling I was only dreaming Twisting, wrenching I hate this feeling Sighing, crying I never saw her coming Moaning, dying We had been flying   Silence, sadness
I let you in, you built a wall.  I lifted you up, you let me fall.
Stare away into the mist
As I walked on a cold December evening
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.
You tell me that you love me. Why don't you stop with these lies? You tell me you don't want to hurt me. If that's so, why, why?   Why would you break my heart?
But baby I swear I never meant to hurt you, 
Our relationship was a fairytale It was perfect On the outside It may have crashed and burned in the end But maybe it is a happy ending But I don't know just how yet
Dark, dim. Empty A room full of shadows, and depression Life used to fill the room Along with laughter, n smiles Along with good memories, n happiness But now Death fills the room.
It was the day before my birthday That I made a big mistake I told you how I felt And you got mad at me You said I had no reason To be upset with you   You said you know how I feel
I type words and write letters I listen to sad songs and sing along I thought by now that I'd be better I know now that I was wrong    Don't say you're over me when you're not
Love is patient, love is kind, As Paul so eloquently wrote But love is fast, love is temporary, It can end as quickly as an eighth note Heartbreak sucks It’s easy to see
Please tell me it was I who made you leave I do not want to believe that you meant to walk away I want to blame myself
Take me to the moment when our eyes first met Across the room, at a party You didn't have to say a word I knew what you were thinking, without meeting you before  
At that time those 
Yeah, I fell in love  Yes, I fell in love with you  I'm not ashamed I did it How about you? Do you ever wonder? Or even care about me? It seems like you don't And if not, I'll let it be
First handhold at a movie
For this I cannot bear. To know you are there and you are not here. To what do I owe the pleasure to the world to thank for the heart ache it has brought upon me.
and you told me you wouldn't leaveand that you would neve
You see, the problem is I have treated you as if you are the sun. And you are not the sun. My life does not depend on you, you are not in any way crucial to my survival.
"Pick your poison," he says to me.
Once I was in love, To the person who I thought, for me, was enough. He was funny and tall, Courteous and all. He makes those crazy jokes, But gentleman the most.
You thought we were friends.  You thought we were cool.  You thought you had the world in the palms of your hands.  You thought things were given to you so you can break them. You thought love grows on trees. 
I wonder about her I wonder what it's like And I wonder If I even crossed your mind I wonder what it's got to take How bad it's got to be For you to make that kind of mistake For me to leave
Troubles, I have troubles. Here, there just about anywhere. You could say I have 99 troubles  And you’re all but one.   Why can’t you be loved or loving?  I know you have been hurt,
Last summer I drank my heart away and my insides became soggy. Sitting against alcohol my 
Knock, knock, knock.Love's arrived and his fists leave knuckle prints apon the door in front of me.Knock, knock, knock.Love's knocking earthquakes at my feet
Forever and ever Love ballads written proclaiming my undying love  Months of long, late night calls. Forever and ever Turned upside down So fast. My head is still spinning.
With shaken hands
When a love goes our heart filled with sadness When a love goes Little things invade my mind more and more When a love goes I just love being alive When a love goes
My life is a book of knots. feel free to read through them and watch me rot see I tried to die but I got caught  and I loved more, so much I thought
We sit together again 'My parents are Fighting' I'm being pulled apart Like a string in Tug-of war Offer me your sympathy Take a little piece of me Joke with me again
take my hand and set me free, from this dream of you and me. Promise me one simple thing, but where to start, where to begin?   maybe a hello,  or maybe goodbye maybe some simple question,
One day I'll catch you pick pocketing my chest cavity. I'll catch you reaching past flesh without calamity. I'll catch you, hands stained with red taboo,
Sitting all by myself, it seems to be only me, striving to attempt, what I can't truly be. Heartache and pain, I don't know what for, it just seems, that you shut the door.
It was like drowning in the darkness of the seemingly desolate ocean Lit only by the odd glimmer of moonlight The odd sparkle of his eyes I can swim, but I didn't want to
In the flesh, you're the girl I once knew: a phantom before my eyes,
Are you ready to be fooled? We break up, we make up and then everythings okay. But now? nothing is right. Where is the makeup part to our routine?
Today would be memories of our journey Together and apart, Of struggles and triumphs over brokenness and unworthiness…   Today would be sweet nothings funny stories soft kisses strong embraces…
You screwed me up had me thinking that you "loved me" You dont understand the words "I love you" because you said it so often throughing that word out like you actually meant it
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.
I would always set out and enjoy the summer nights. Staring at the stars peeking through as they shined down. Like the glow of the same colored lights. Lighting up a big city or casting over a small town.
I lay my blade down 
You say I'm gorgeous. You hold me tight and tell me it's okay, You wiped away all the tears from him. You showed me love You actually met my family. You will never understand me, My disease,
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  
Give me the courage to speak, The confidence to act, The wisdom to understand, The hope that can lift my heart of stone and ice. Thaw it.
Ignorance is such a beautiful thing, But oh how toxic it can be. You poisoned my mind with words of beauty, Songs of joy my heart did sing,
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.
TAKE A DEEP BREATH: 
love is when  he comes over to your house at midnight because its raining  just to kiss you even though your mom said no, and his mom said no too because he knows you love it when it happens in movies
Was it necessary For you to remind me Of what I already know Of what is plain to see?   I already know I'm not his first choice This repetitive news Doesn't make me rejoice  
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
Red
Red is that feeling in your chest when you dip her so low that her hair brushes the floor, slightly. Red is  her lips when she pulls you in for another kiss. Red is all you can see when you come in and find her in the arms of another.
I jotted down a message to myself in my phone: “Write a poem about watches and bicycles and poetry.”   Is that all he really left me with?
It's 6:27 on a Thursday morning  I woke up with a knife in my stomach and I'm missing you   It's 7:39 on a Thursday morning 
How Are You Free?   
running in
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
your lips touched me and brought what flows through my body up to the surfaceand it was a beautiful thing and i finally believed that who i was was beautifuli was myself and i was no longer ashamed of it but
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
 
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
When I'm with you, I smoke less When you're with me, you smoke more What a perfect way to describe our relationship You may be good for me  But I'm no good for you  
You know when you have a breakup
  He's silent in a hundred different ways. Yet in his silence, count the many times he's made you FEEL. Never forget:
Little one, don't be glum I know you loved him so As they say – a horse with broken legs is dead anyways
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
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.
Here I sit all alone No one to talk to No one to relate to Wishing that one day I won't have to feel sad One day, maybe I'll find someone to love me Or just maybe be alone forever.
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.
My memories of you are like the trees Roots planted deep in the ground of my mind Your branches, intertwined with every passing thought
shaky breaths and flitting eyes when did we come to this point.
  I come to my sense
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
I think in pictures, not words.
The stars have alignedGot you on my mindMy heart's cold and oh so lonelySo I swallow some sinFor the pain that I'm inA cigarette, a blade, a dietWhen we promised we'd stop
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,...
I guess, no, I don’t guess. I have too many scars to count. When did these start to amount, I don’t know.
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

Painful infatuation    The only escape is    Transcendence of the human situation   Finding love, illusory promises of elation  
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 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
Colorless is how people should appear to a police officer’s view Offender’s skin shouldn't make a difference in the end its true

I've been cursed to spend my life fighting. Darkness and war follows me everywhere I go. Fire and venom are in my veins.
3:22 and it's not you lying next to me you're probably sleeping just fine. Eyes just barely closed and fingertips inches away. Soft snores telling dreams I wish to be in. But when I open my eyes
I'm starting to feel like hearts are anchors and mine is rushing to the ground. Only I don't want to stay here, stranded under the beating sun.   So tell me how to jump
Don't touch me, I'm fragile. I flutter and float in the wind,
You!

His sweet skin has outlived its expiration Finally, it has soured, from the moment her lips touched. Undeniably it had to happen someday: the outside will always creep on in.
I loved our home it took so much to build the door our joined hands the roof one another's protection dad after day we built it till it became our little cabin our feet kept toasty warm
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
        inspired by the Bible story of  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego   not pushed, nor did i jump yet i fell into the fire   the vehement flames circle heating me with a ferocity ethereal
My life is like music:
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.
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,
Maybe at times i did things that hurt, but i tried so hard that you will always see That having you was a blessing for you and me.
My heart turned into stone so I skipped it across the pond I made the choice to let it go because I didn't need it anymore Now I'm dragging it back because I found where it belongs
Rain drops fall A heart beat stops A girl dies A call to the cops A boy cries A family gathers to morn
Dried tears on my cheekMy eyelashes are dampMy heart is too weakI can't stand the painThough it's my punishment to bearI can't stand the thoughtBut my mind is already there
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
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
  When my stitches dissolved, I resolved a plan A list, if you will Of qualifications for the perfect man Or, if you will The perfect woman. When I fall in love I want to be EMO
Friday you come home from college full of stories describing your drunken antics, a new affinity for the Spanish language, and ambitions destined to take you far away from me. for a moment,
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.
Roses are red. Violets are blue. Don't wait for the moment. No one can give you the world But you Red who rose Violet no longer blue If you want the truth No one can love you Like you
