Picking at her bloody wounds There she hides inside her room Reliving that awful night Shes sinking, drowning, drenched in frieght tears stain her mournful eyes wishing what she heard were lies

“FROM THE ASHES” by Thomas McClellanJanuary 30, 2014 A life so bright, yet so young,
It was in the dawn covered in dew That we begin our journey true We had no haste, no time to waste Our lives had changed years before, husbands taken by the war

There is a life to the city, a vitality not found in Suburbia. Uniqueness, sprinkled in among the chain coffee shops. Food trucks with steam rising from them on cold days,

The coffee creamer of society I am what others believe It is tough not knowing your nationality For it is based on the individual and what they perceive Natives see the refined, marble white
We all deal with monsters, Monsters in our heads, Monsters in our bodies. Depression, Scizophrenia, Rymitoid, CRPS. The monsters kill us, Inside and out, To the point of no return,
There you lay, in box of the deceased.I watch as they carry you to the nest of our creator.Stiff as rock, and cold as a winter’s day.Here I am wasting away what others have achieved.
Creativity feeds on expression,It thrives on liberation,It fears oppression,And it creates affection. So let your mind free,Let your spirit be,Be your own entity,Your act is the key.

Whenever I am lost or lonely, I know that I need only to pick a book and disappear. Whenever I am hapless or unhappy, I know that I need only to find solace in these pages.
One choice decides life How should I know what to do It stresses me out
Your aroma is so pleasingYour smell is so delightfulTo my senses you are appeasingWithout you, I can be spiteful
The woods are silent tonight There is not even a peep in it All of a sudden there is a light It grows larger by the minute The animals run for their lives trying not to breath in the smoke
I'm fighting through veils and curtains and the smoke and mirrors of my mind. My fears. My failure. Pulling rejection out of tophats and vanishing self esteem under cloths.

Scream and shout Breathe in, breathe out
I've waged war against you, in my head and in my heart. If there is anything I've learned about war, it's that we always falls apart.
But over-complicating the same simple emotions over and over again.
Restless. Suspended in stagnation. Reflective hibernation.
You may hate them, But you don't. You know they're right, But you still doubt. You want to leave, But you can't resist Because they're your family. They can't lose you.
The cold blade that's pressed to my throat,
Change. We all want change
In a time when all my hopes were dim, You were the candle that brightened my day. When my circumstances were all too grim, You were with me all the way. When I said I lost and was ready to quit,

Simplicity is rich to the poor mans eyes. Why war, why rumor, why lies? A books cover is beautiful, tho torn inside. Leave out the war, rumors, and lies. A book was not meant to attract flies.

When you look into your reflection, what do you see? Probably the rippled mirage of your blue, glowing face.

Whispers in the ear, voices in the head, I don't understand.

Drip drop, pitter patter
While we walked up the gravel path through the hills. I looked upon these stone memorials. Simply thinking to myself about the days that are flying by, so fast. The days that mean so little, yet so much at the same time.
The wide eyed girl, who stares up at me with curious yet confused eyes. She looks at me with admiration, yet as if I am a puzzle she is trying to fit together in her mind.
I’m cracked from where She threw a book at me Heavy and thick, her arms shook with the effort of tossing it
The "Unfortunate" Tree He is standing by the tree,
What is it with people? Is it my face? Is it my hair? or perhaps my race? Does it really matter, Or should I really care? I mean, after all... It's my life, not theirs.
The hours she spends to be perfect, the hours tries to cover her flaws. She cannot see the beauty within, she only sees the ugly outside. If only she could leave the quarrel; just disappear into thin air.
As I lay here Staring at my husband Wondering what is on his mind As he slowly Turns his head and stares at me

We're caught up in our own world, spiraling down in a never ending twirl, or maybe we're drowning in a never-ending swirl. We try to catch our breath and gasp for air,
Happiness is my key, all I want to see.
Layer 1 I am quite, I am meek, I am smart, I am shy. That is the mask I wear. Layer 2 I am quirky, I am fun, I am sponatneous, I am loyal. Only a few see this.
Words give life, They create magic, They create new worlds, Colors and shapes form before your very eyes, You are no longer you but someone new, You live in a distant land far away.

From space, you are a speck of dust, A delicate flower, Swaying for the amusement of others, Underestimated to the point of insult From across the horizon, you are but a wave

Tears trickle in little troughs down my back Poor babies, poor children Crystal vases in Heaven shatter when they hit the ground Like a living thing they stumble haltingly down my back
Sometimes I wish I could just hide Sometimes I wish I could be eveyone else Sometimes I wish I could smoke pot Sometimes I wish I didn't play music Sometimes I wish my hair was a normal color

Somewhere in between the brightest most beautiful place and the most darkest grimest place is where I resign. No smile no frown. Down with no thoughts of tomorrow or now just left with the constant tick-tok from the clock I stare at.

You are beautiful, You are love, You are worhy You are worhy of love that you cannot even begin to comprehend. This love is everlasting, unconditional, unfailing, never ending.
I was born with to much Melanin Melanin! Melanin! MELANIN!
My heart is like a puzzle set,broken clear into.From all the guys I've ever met,who hurt me through and through.But you're the one who heals the breaks,and turns away the blue.
when your support fails. you feel unworthy, uncompitent and most of all shame. that you put them trough it, untill they hit the breaking point. when your foundation crumbles you dont know what to do. the only thing you can do is cry.
Standing there Talking to a student My teacher Is making A new world. She is as White As the moon. But she talks to Us, Black people, Like we were
look at yourself look at your thighs do you really believe people would care if you died your eyes are to small and your stomach too round feel the adreniline pumping?
So many people are lost in their ways, Having lost their bearings, strayed in sea,
Drops of water fall on my plate, ready to spill. The search for answers, the clock is ticking still. Answer my question...why am I still alive? Is it for a reason, to find the meaning of life? I'll just have to do or die.
It's amazing how you can fall for someone, who see's you as invisible, doesn't care is they break you They ponder at you wondering who you are I wish they would know me just like I did for him.
Tears run,And shadows crawl,For all of those who've lost it all. Food is less,And hunger more,All our hope is out the door. Sorrow hearts,And weakened souls,As we hold our empty bowls.
Dear Bully, what you do not see is that I am stronger than you. Dear Bully, if you stood in my place you would see the hell you put me through. Dear Bully, why, oh why, do you do what you do?
What is this feeling I can't seem to control? Deep, deep inside me I no longer feel whole. The world around me seems to be moving fast, but no matter how hard I try, I'm stuck in the past.
Engrained in the very fiber of our culture, Fundamental to our identity, They say it empowers and protects us, They say that guns make us American, Our language is corrupt with its influence,
I feel it on the inside. I feel it in my soul. I feel this certain something that makes my body whole.
With every hit no one can explain
Now he's dead No one knows why He committed suicide On his first try No one knows the thoughts that went through his mind They're afraid to delve deeper For fear of what they might find
Her voice is fading from my mind,As time rushes on without her.The time for warm hugs to bindus have long since passed.
Given Up by Alycia Zenga Giving up What an easy road to take For a ladder of hope and will
Never spare a passing glance,
Loving caresses Following me endlessly Appreciation
He cost her too much Without much luck with their love She left, said goodbye
Staring at walls, out of mind Dark despair calls, like no other kind Shadows swirling, thoughts racing Emotions twirling, no point in chasing
Alone. A hole. A sadness. A blue comfort. My heart is a lonely hunter Who spends its life
Absent from the beginning
Ever since i was small, all ive ever had a heart for was children. Sure im generally a chill person but there's always this thing with me when it comes to adults.
If words could be tasted Would idiot be sour? Would oppress be foul? Would morbid be bitter? Would smack be acidic? Or would finesse be like honey?
I hate poetry.I think it's a waste of time.
You only write once is a very true statement. My generation is motivated by money, power, and respect. My hunger was always driven by intellect. A good education is something intangible that can't be taken away.
I don't know what I'm feeling right now
Success is engraved in my brain More knowledge –I don’t complain Stupidity is the cousin of ignorance Why y'all still messing with racism Lets change the world a bit Our generations was left with shit
The tunnel in front of me glows calling for me
At Eight years old, you believed superman was your real hero. At eight years old, my mom was mine and she needed to heal. You didnt believe superman ever took off his cape.
colorguard. no. not the military one. the one with the pretty flags,
It's a peculular thing; life, One goes through everyday struggles, Yet never does it end, The endless torment, So what can be done? We can kill the problemers,
No matter how long it's been,
When I was young,
When I was young,
Big eyes shining like the mo
Hah! Death, I scoff at the word. How silly people fear what they know NOTHING about. "Death; the destruction or extinction of something." Destruction? Extinction? You have no idea! The person is at a place far better than this world.
Growing up can be something to get accustomed to You don’t know who you are just yet You try to find the real you
Needle in a haystackI am the needle
I had a bestfriendHer name was MiaShe gave me tips to ease the painHeld back my hair as I threw up my sinsTaught me how to gag quietlyTold me to never eat hot things
Your words no longer faze me, they can’t hurt me. I cried at night you made me hate me. Your words cut, cut so deep I watched myself bleed. You with your pretty hair and your perfect skin how can I fight back.
lies to cover scandals scandals leading to hurting

When I was little I was fascinated by my body.I wasn’t even 60 pounds and yetalready known for looking down.People thought I stared at the groundbut instead I was watching my feet,
As it arrives everything diesThe leaves change colorNature's beauty diesBut one true beauty remains in galore
If life were only poetry, I would write my life away. Avoiding the constant struggle, When hardships stop to "play". If life were but simplicity, A constant epiphany i would vow.
Walking through the halls, we all look the same
I've never been the superstitious type, but there's something about that's so supernatural. But yet it feels so natural everytime I look at you. And I felt us drawing close before I even met you.
I wanna run away Away from all the hurt and pain Painful mistakes and irony misplaced Crying................ That is all I know
Pain like Fire This pain I’m feeling, is unlike anything I’ve ever felt, Lost, Confused, Heart broken, it’s an everlasting nightmare. This pain I’m feeling,
A lot of people wonder why I’m so concerned on listening to people’s problems and respecting people.
A dot .
I was 13. Looking in the mirror, It never dawned to me why, Why the window between my teeth, The disproportionate nose, The “five-head”, Too sufficient for just a bang, Not brown
I miss you. What can I say? My burning desire of wanting to be with you grows by each passing day. I see the world in black and white now because you're not here with me.
Soon flowers will growin the deepest and saddest partsof you and you'll bloom
You will always have people in your life that test you There will always be people there to knock you down It may seem that all the negative people are stuck to you like glue
It's the absence of warmth.The familiarity of a hand upon your shoulder.It's departure leaving all but an imprint.
Darkness floods you veins,Your eyes have become reflecting pools,Black like dreamless sleep,You ache for the affection,
I want to fall into you,Like butter on warm toast,Snow on a summer day,The fragrance of a slow cooked roast.
FOOD FOOD FOOD Every ravenous soul cries for What is food at all? Is it Satisfaction...? Or a remedy to survival...think about it - I see food as Cruel, Enemy, Evil, Vicious...
When love gets a little easier Maybe I'll be able to say hello and not have my eyes rain Maybe the tulips will finally bloom properly and maybe the dandelions will finally blow in my direction and cover my face with their wishes
Baby Don't tell a soul ....
I sit among the trees looking up at the sky. My thoughts ponder and ask the question why? Why does it feel like I’m slowly dying?
What do when everything feels like it is falling slowly into a million little pieces? Just one thing after another, Crash, crash, crash, I want to cry but don’t know how, Crash, crash, crash,
I cannot touch you Not physically Yet emotinally and mentally I manage to do. You're so far away But so close to me I tell you goodnight at the end of the day. I wish I we could meet
When will things be different….will I ever get back the innocence I’ve lost. Will I ever smile again and have the light that twinkled in my eye?? Every day is a struggle to go on and to push through all the demons that haunt me.
One step out the door Come back!!! I can't do that, I've gone to far. I've stepped into deeper waters and I'm drowing. I've dug my own grave and the world is slowly closing in. You can't do this!
Where I Am From I am from coffee in the morning to Maxwell House at night. I am from the feel of soft carpet mixed with the vivid smell of roses.
I live to see the sunshine, brighter than the green on pine I live to see the rain, gloomy and forever a pain I live to eat, stuffing my mouth whereever I find a seat I live to drink, only to end up in the kitchen sink
Shes beautiful and she knows it,Even though her body disagrees. Shes weak physically but doesn't not try,As she has a strong will and doesn't want to die.
Close ur eyes go under luke warm water an stay there for 5 minutes thats how life was for me 'picture a darkness that is trying to take over think of trying to scream i cant hear
All i want to do is play instead of doing work all day. With all the homework and the tests, Its a miracle I have time for rests. As more work piles up and you start to stress,
At a certain age We all lose our heads. They roll into the night Out of reach
Whispered sweet nothings, I find nothing sweet The cliched line just burn my aching heart With nervous glances they hurriedly meet Falling "in love" even before they part
I never thought it would hurt that much,
Black holes come from broken hearts... so much disparity in the world over loves now lost
A lot of the time I’m Mid-Night Black Fearing to be seen within the day Hurting to fit in with all that call me prey
Now a day's the 90's generation is so much different the males are growing up disrespecting us women calling us bitches and sluts but
I look up at many faces, at all the many places. so what if I am shorter? Between me and them, there is no border. I don't think people should be judged by height. Toward others, my thoughts are bright.
I saw her there, out in the crowd. I saw her there, my mind cried aloud. She wore black, the shade of her hair. She wore black, the hue of despair. Alone she sat, in an empty pew.
Who really is family ? A question that now at my 17 years old, I'm stuck asking. I was always taught family is only blood and we all watch out for each other. I come from a huge family , so there is no such thing as close family.
Heartbreak is not something that is easy to take For it clouds the mind and causes the esteem to effortlessly break Hours upon hours are spent of you picking up the pieces
Wrote this in the wee hours of the morning, sort of in a trance like state.
Warm, soothing, purring soft ones. Family, gathered for communal peace. Sarcastic, judging, hurtful words, freezing hearts. Undoing what a roast has done, with another.
Alone..Always I will be, No place to call home, No one to understand me. Pain turns my heart cold, I'm permanantly sad even though I've got a smile of gold. Alone..I won't ever fit in.
I wander lonely around, As I watch the world move as fast as lightning. I watch those that fall leisurely get up and move on, unbound, While I'm stuck in the black hole I once found shiny.
Life is all stick and stone. Looking out across recent life's sea, Or shall I say looking in, I'm looking at what used to be. I'm not excluded from that life and its kin.
why cant i see you?
I'm sitting here in the midst of it all, And wishing that I'd never took the fall. I'm hoping that you're somewhere happy, While I'm saying that I hope your life's crappy. This is my revolution of letting go.
I'm sitting here really thinking hard about you, Remembering the good & what made me blue. Thinking of all we been through, How many times you've referred to me as your boo. Nothing lasts forever.
I Try To Act As If I Don't Pay Attention, I Know You Feel The Stares, Maybe You Actually Don't At All Feel The Tension, You're Too Busy Hugged Up With My Worst Nightmare.
There's a quiet thunderstorm inside my head, the thoughts strike across my brain, neurons illuminate with light, transmitting more than what is visible by sight. There's a quiet thunderstorm inside my head.
I'm irritated Frustrated Angry Everything is botteling up Like soda That is shaken up Ready to burst and make a mess Showing my emotions seems like a test
I once met a farmer whose name was Brain He gave me a packet of seeds All that was needed was sunshine and rain To grow these flowers, trees, and weeds And I planted a seed into the ground
My piano plays only for you For you, are the only on it remembers. One touch from your hands will make it new. Its black and white keys have been touched by few, The notes escaping like fire from embers.
If I lose myself, if I remove myself
As I sigh my past replays. A pulse
Playing tag o
If I jumped they wouldn't miss m
Tragedy and triumph
Do not be fighterDo not be curse that person or animal outinstead be a peacemakerDo not steal a thing that you really wantDo not kill that person
The first day that we met I thought you were cute
I missed your white pine arms wrapped softly around my blue water torso,
I just want to be a princess, Told that I am pretty and loved.
Floating through an abyss of tears and fears. Do they notice me? Can they help wipe the errors? Dancing, twirling; I scream to be free. One day they will see, it was me they always needed.
My sister is a musicianWho plays only out of sight
The skies become dark The wind picks up As the rain starts to pour Everyone runs for shelter But as if none of it ever happened Everything stops No wind, no rain, even blue skies
This damaged girl coming from a broken home, no hope left leaving it all torn, Not a single soul for help in times of discord, What happened to all the love and care from her supposed friends?
She always comes & goes. It is better to leave, before she is left. She always comes & goes. She leaves before she is left. The friends she makes, Are kept for years –
We live in a world where double standards bloom around us Waiting for the picking Like fresh lillies in the spring time. If you have acne, you're ugly If you don't, you're stuck up.
Tonight, the waves seem gentler
They judge before they get to know me, they see an alien not a human being. I am a threat to society, so they say, yet all I ever do is stay the same.
I've waited for change But no change has come Maybe I just realized No change will ever come I'm never myself Or happy at that Well I could never assume I were happy with that
Because if you are to love me there are some things you must know for one i am broken and hurt and my view on love is blown I have to start from scratch and learn how to love again
It rises and falls only to rise again. A circadian pattern, until one day it falls too hard. Shattered and torn, It attempts to rise.
Have you ever stomped on flowers? I have. Stomp Stomp Stomp
And as the days go by you rub away at me and peel back the pages of my skin Soon I shall be raw,sore and broken
And as the days go by you rub away at me and peel back the pages of my skin Soon I shall be raw,sore and broken
I know am not the most perfect, beautiful women in the world, you took me to your home, you gave me love, happiness and affection.
Pain is temporary but welcome it's relief where hurt once stood its a cold blade and a restless night a breeze that blows just a shy to cold pain is me mum doing nothing as I'm used pain is me dad turning me into his whore pain is me friends leav
Love is like a drug once you've taste it Searching for that same feeling But I forgot to pace it
Sadness Depressed, gloomy
I remember that day when we first met you spoke naught and only looked at me and shyly smiled but that day I somehow knew that we were meant to be your brown eyes ripped through mine heart and saw me
Life is a let-down So am I Streams of blue rain And all I do is cry Sitting on a cold bench In a cold house
Kick me when I’m down And tell me I don’t matter I want to feel I belong That’s all I ever asked Now really can you blame me
You always thought, your kids will never know the feeling of addiction, but I went to re
I stand there looking at your face. My thoughts starting to race,
My bear is with me nightly, as i fall into smooth slumber. Sometimes i dream, most times i don't, but its there through it all, Its there when you aren't. My only friend, confidante.
My anger pours out as I scream for some release. I want to be gone and away from this beast. Nothing I say is ever enough for you. I cannot be content as long as I'm being used. Set me free I repeatedly scream.
Despair and darkness have taken over my life This is nothing new I've gone through and put up with a lot of strife What is one more day of hell when your life is a pit of fire? You ruined me
Ooh farewell Ooh farewell Sorry to see you go My hopes where For you to come home again Praying for the sun to shine on you Never to be rained on by falling bullets or falling bombs
You may have had a rough life, present & future – but who are you to judge the future?
In this universe, there’s too much pain From people to people, it’ a non-ending train Trying not to give in time Wasting is not a try Good, bad, jealous, uncaring
Silence,loneliness, she hated it the most.
A rose, but one, none other rose did I have, A rose, one rose, and this was a wondrous creation, One rose a rose that brightened earth and sky, One rose, my rose, that sweetened my breath and air,
I was not born mean I was born into treachery Riding on glaring black wheels My heart's left black eye caught feelings Who knew a handsome fellow Had inherited Jack the Ripper's thirst
Shut off in my little world A dust bunny jumps on by
The point of the pen cuts deeper than the bladeIt leaves its mark, on my skin, the pageFinger print lines, lies on those lipsIt dripsInk glistens, follows veinsA sick beat trailing after your blood
The case of a bladeIn the darkest placeI clutched it through fabricThrough every feelingA portal to a memory long goneThe blood on your handsThe smile on your lipsf̶e̶l̶t̶ feels so good
They say just let go But I hang on to the edge Of everything Is letting go such a good idea?
We've All had that kin of love, where we fall so hard we've all fallen for the one person who can do no wrong to us we've all gotten to that point We've all been wraped up in the phenomena of
My soul is like an empty sock Cold and pleading for a foot. But my soul is allergic to feet So it weeps at night for the homeless grass. I also like to watch the moon smile at the stars.
Hands in the sky On my knees Nobody heard My piercing scream The broken remains Of the world around Shattered and fell With a deafening sound
as she sped down the interstate going 90 she saw things she saw her father hanging off a power line a tv cord permitting him death she would see the cord murdering him
A carefree soul With a busy mind; A gentle heart Trapped in a little girl. Smiles fill her face And laughter fills her air, As she wanders aimlessly Through her days. Four golden hearts
In the silent waves she saw herself, Lost and confused, she cried for help. Through the screams and moans that came tumbling out, The distorted images that filled her with doubt. No longer could she stand alone,
Students came trampling on the ground
Honorio Freeland Lost in the World Who am I? What makes me, me? Eighteen years young, With not plenty to show for it.
School is a place where I love to go, Where I stare at a board so my mind will grow. I love it so much I could go all year, Yeah, that's right, no sarcasm here. I love how I learn just what my teachers say,
Stuff I Can't Say To My Teacher What many things they are ,
I am not a number. I am not a rank out of my class, which is a bummer. I am not a number on a four-point scale. I am not just a student, and I like to rebel. I am a person.
Always last in Gym Class, I Never stood a chance in Debate. Immediately chosen for any Group task, That science Fair was a piece of Cake. Teachers love me, Oh how they praise me. Others not so much,
Alex Noe, I love you You make me feel very special But you have to know I won when I first met you Only been a month It feels right to say “I love…” I believe in us I know we can make this work
Everyone’s a rebel, we all want to change the system. We all shout until our throats are sore but the government won’t listen. School funding is paid by the local property taxes.
You Can Not See Who Are The Students That Suffer Please, Open Your Eyes
I am the girl you laugh at every day I am the boy with scars on my arms I am the geek who hides behind books I am the jock who's scared of sexuality I am the cheerleader with the imperfect body
T'Was the Christmas season, Where a little boy glees with reason. He's filled with joy, As he waits for hid favorite toy. The little boy couldn't wait, but it was just too late.
Bite your tongue and if you can't then I
Alone. Always I am alone. No one to turn to and nowhere to run, it isn't on purpose and it isn't fun. I try to stand up, I try to speak out, but always I am told that without a doubt,
I can't do it! Everytime I try, I Fail! You keep pushing, But you don't understand Everytime I try,
What I learned in high school is...is…
It feels like I been here before I feel familar with this scene these words theses actions I feel like its on everyones minds thoughts lips tounge, its been in every corner of the world this feel to familar yet it has no shape, nor organic matte
Allow me to clear my throat first Ahem, Fuck you, English Teacher, with the same capital F You gave me on that paper you refused to accept I know my ABCs and my punctuation
I'm nothing special Not beautiful Not talented Not funny Not smart I'm just an average girl Destined for an average life For meaningless experiences And dismal opportunities
I feel like I'm walking upstream through a current strong enough to pull me under again.
Run baby run Don't ever look back. They'll tear you apart If you give them the chance
I Just Want To know If I died today Who would cry tonight Who would miss school tomorrow Who would regret their actios next week Would anyone stand tall like a mountain for next year
I grew tired of sleepless nights- Contemplating life while simultaneously Managing to not participate in it.
It's really a funny thing, people assume those who are the sadest: never smile
as of right nowI'd rather be a poor woman on the street no food to eati don't wont no but if i have to crylooking down seem like i had it all
Believe me, I am aware Of every single flaw Or imperfection That creates my Monstrous existence. So who are you To come and blame My imperfections For making me
If only they knew , if only i could say..i hate coming to school everyday. Not because of the lunch, or the switching my class rush.
I came home and found you in your usual spot, hiding from the world. Dark despide the sun being awake. Your eyes are open yet nobodys home, you stare straight ahead without following my movements.
I can't cry, Because that is admitting defeat, I can't cry, Because if I did you'd tear me down more. I can't smile, Because you know if I do it'll crack into a thousand pieces, I can't smile,
i i w i wa i wan i want i want t i want to i want to b i want to be i want to be f i want to be fr i want to be fre i want to be free.
Where are you going, I can't find you, where are you going, I just trusted you, Where are you going tonight. I just wanted you, and I just needed you, I am waiting, I am alone,
My life is like a bad fairytale. Dragons lurk in every cave, ogres in every shadow. When I get to the place where the castle should be, what do I see? The evasive palace has escaped me.
I am reaching out to youBut you cannot or will not hearCan’t you see that I am in need?You look without seeing my tears I am so lonesome. All by myself
Powerful word: Ignored. Emotionally and physically. Why does the world have the mentality of every man for itself? Feeling lonely and unimportant. Both in home and the world.
I want to love you for forever and a day. Til the sun comes down, and its time to lay. Til, the wind blows and the seas roar. I wanna be with you, but dont forget theres one more.
My blood ran cold as he looks at me,i shiver as his breeze past me, i look apon his face and i worry... why is this i wonder?
Hand in hand our gazes met. One quick smile, one skipped breath. Is this love? Do I have faith? To lunge head first or am I too afraid.
you will never know unless you are in that persons shoes
Numbers, books, words, they're all related in a way It all relates through school I must say Some things just don't make sense And yes I have spent most of my life in school Some may call me a fool
This is the blood i bleed There is a reason for this pain Some people just never understand The pain i go through is too much to withstand This pain i go through is worse than any other
frusterated .. miserble .. that is my school life . teachers on the other hand makes my world go upside DoWn. with their i dont think so, and NO you cant ughhh... this is miserable.. teachers these day.
Eventually Eventually you’ll run out of tears, Eventually you’ll run out of fears. Eventually you’ll run out of sadness,
i know im not right for you but i wish i was. i try not to fall for you but i just cant. i keep holding these feelings in because its too soon. but if you give me a chace ill prove it to you. if i get hurt i can only blame me.
Love a 4 letter word, though it holds so much gravity yet we throw it around like something thats only worth a penny Hate
Words of honey can lead to arrogance, And words of vinegar often sting. It is your job to educate and enrich,
There is an empty place in my chest, an empty spot where my thoughts use to flow and my memories use to play. The familiar rhythm that's kept me alive for so long is slowly coming to a halt.
Life: the inevitable, it can throw you to the ground, or it can bring you up, either way it treats you a certain way. I've always been the one to experience this,
Miss(ed) Teacher By: Arianna Peralta Teacher, teacher why are you late?
Friends should come and stay,
It was you who lighten up my day,
Its coarse taut roots embedded themselves within my chest, making it harder to finish my quest. Its icy cold petals blossomed within,
Heavy hangs the albatross Around my neck like pearls. Passed from an elder, To a little girl. Knowledge may be a gift,
My heart sings the words Of my soul It feels all my weeknesses It hears all my screams It tastes the chalking of my blood It smells the fear of my aching beat It sees the nightmares that I

There's nothing i wouldnt do just to see you again All the words i've said have no meaning With this mess i've made i must do all the cleaning I told you i loved you But you left me with no clue
Let's pop some pills, Fall in loveCut our wrists and spill our bloodDrink come Gin, let's die tonightCome on Demons, help end our lifeLet us bleed, for what we see
Let's pop some pills, Fall in loveCut our wrists and spill our bloodDrink come Gin, let's die tonightCome on Demons, help end our lifeLet us bleed, for what we see
I am from hearing babies cry changing numerous diapers a day, from an innocent kid and team work.
I know this girl Who has a broken heart Who wants to cry Who wants to die Who wears a fake smile But has a friend that tells her "Stay strong , everything will be okay." She wants to scream She wants to shot But wont....... She remembers all
All the cliques laugh away While I sit and watch Wondering where my friends are Wondering where you are Wondering why distance keeps us apart. The teachers will lecture
Used to be friends our first year Fast-forward, I’m standing here Halls are deserted, no one in sight Here you come from behind and body check me on the right That’s how it started
Roses are red Violets are blue
Every day's a waste. I'd rather have just died. I try to get though it. Believe me, I've tried. I am so tired of feeling Like no one gives a shit Not my friends or parents. Im so done with it.
I always said it couldn't happen to me I always said my heart cant be broken I always said I would never cry I always said I don't fight for boys I always said NO FATHERS ALLOWED I always said I don't believe in love But now I say that you change
The small boy
I'm tired of looking at you Wondering if I'm doing what's right I'm tired of watching you kill yourself Fighting to save your life I'm tired of you destorying who you are inside as person
Love is hallow as a cave Led by its beauty, a great quest Love is a path for the brave It will never settle for less.
What is something you can't say to your teacher? Is it a thing or an action? A place or person? A problem or an obstacle? A struggle or problem? To tell you the truth we can tell all of this
Little girl why are you crying Is it cause everyone keeps lying Saying its gonna get better But your face just keeps getting wetter Little girl why are you so sad
She was a very young girl Life just started it would seem About fifteen years old Life being torn by the seams
I will make promises,
Fond memories, led astray No glimpse of hope, such disarray Scornful judgment brings out a beast, so tame Blinded by its fear, naught bravery remain Tearing at the wounds that reject
Love is something I don't understand.Hell, I don't think anyone does.When you say "I love you."And they say "Don't."How do you expect me to changeThe way I feel about youIt's not much of a choice.
She stands speechless as the colors dribble down the wall
Kiss my lips and empty me, love me long and set me free. I'll give you it all, even me. Or crush me quick and leave me be. Our love is strong..in harmony Love is only temprary.
What do you say- When no one will listen? Who do you ask- When no one will help? Where do you run- When there’s nowhere to go? What do you feel- When all you feel is hurt?
In the valley of the Shadow of Death, There’s no place to hide, no place to rest. The demons there, haunting your every step. Choking you ‘till you have no breath. The light at the end of the tunnel
When your pain is tangible You can reach out and touch it. It’s everywhere, consuming you. You don’t even realize how lon_____g it’s been eating away at your insides, until they finally cave in and c
I’m walking a thin line, I’m running out of my lifeline. They’re letting go, they’re moving on How come I’m so far gone? Why am I so worthless? My life so pointless?
I thought about it once or twice, maybe three or four. About suicide, and what it would be like, if I didn’t live anymore. My world is dark and gray, filled with sorrow and lots of pain.
Society has spoken, nobody cares. He cries all alone, for the truth he cannot bear. He bleeds all night yet no one is there, not one single person nice enough to care.
You clenched at my chest, For a sweet rational moment. Heart drop. Bottom rock. The bitter grin Made my face numb like gin. The only Substance That can Be Absorbed
There she was alone again she made her choice so we'd hear her silent voice maybe I was so stupid, for not seeing this before This is why, she cried to sleep at night
Can i balance on a beam when im not steady
I'm a glass house. Just take a glance, you'll know if I'm home or not Maybe a light is on, music is playing Peer a little deeper to be sure that I'm not Survey my windows to see if you can find me,
I'm sorry that I fell in love Sorry that I think you're perfect Sorry that You're the one I didn't mean to bother. I didn't mean to push you away Didn't mean to go insane I just wanted you to stay
To whom it may concern, It is healthy food for which i yearn. For it's called chicken but looks like a log. Then after we eat, we continue to learn in fog.
Nights of terror seem to pass And days of sorrow fade. In every moment that I laugh I slowly crawl out of the shade. Bits and pieces start to form But some parts are still gone.
Hey you… Yeah, you. The girl with all the scars and stories to tell. The boy who sits alone in the corner, The child with a black eye from “falling down the stairs”, I’m here for you, Now and forever.
Fret. Regret. Anxiety. Worry. These are the things that held me down. These were the things that haunted me One big confusion. one big disaster, spinning out of control,
I remember when it used to be just us and the music. We blocked the whole world out to hip hop, and every now and again, I could convinvce you to try something else. Like Carolina Liar, or Of Monsters and Men,
Living in darkness seemed the best way Light never reached my face as I lay As the fabric of life seemed to fray Hateful words spoken in spite Light was no longer in my sight
Book by book, Stacked upon my back,
We harldy know each other
There are some students who don't respect. There are those who don't care about their teachers. Respect them and they will recommend
Stuck in my mind, but I must rewind. Death seeks everyone, its part of life. There is a limit of time, passes by like the speed of light. Containing wonderful memberies,
I miss your smile, i miss your face, i miss your strongly supporting embrace. I miss your voice, i miss your words, that made me feel like, the only girl in the world. I miss your laugh,
They tell me I'm not quite right, that I don't meet their standards Reminding me of my imperfections and screaming at me to be better. Their words sizzle against my heart; Singeing the delicate flesh,
As she closed her eyes she imagined her life before her Her eyes were bowed down in defeat, in weakness She reminisced on what she had lost, what she had gained
If you only knew What we carry on our crooked spines When we leave your room The torment The pressure The never ending gloom If you only knew What our futures hold
Society killed the teenager. What did we expect? That the words would roll off their shoulders? No responsibility to collect? Society killed her. They said she wasn’t pretty enough.
Its 2012, December 31st, It all started with a Facebook message saying I had a crush, I made you laugh and I made you blush You gave me your number we would text and we would flirt,
Your the love of my life, The bright star that shine in me, The inspiration that put me to my feet. You mean the world to me. Everyday dreaming about the day we will meet again. Your the sorrow in myy heart, I never knew you and i was like stars.
Today is the last day I'll feel you breathing down my back, My love for you is gone, I don't know if I'm sad or relieved, Because falling in love with you was the best thing that ever happened to me,
A rainy day is like a sad day, Sad day with me fill with tears. I search the days to shine but no sun is found. Everyday i mock a sunny day but really it a rrainy day inside of me.
I was alive when i met you. Alive but cautious because I always feared death... feared what it would be like if you left.... You made me live reckless on the edge.. and the times i spent with you....

You yell at me and I stare, I don't know what to do. I know what I want to say, but the message won't go through. The words are stuck in my throat, I can't speak cause of the looks you show.
In the past, i never talked about my needs. I never wanted to tell my needs. I was alone because i had no one. I had family, but i never saw it. I had friends, but i never saw it. I was getting help, but i never saw it.
Gently they take her wrist And break it They stroke his hair And pull it The hold her hand Then smash it They teach him well then let him go They want to teach her about the world
She strokes my hair gently Kisses me passionatlely Hugs me tightly Always loves me Wants to be with me forever Cares about me more than anything Spends every second of every day by my side
You can be a real pain at times coming whenever you feel like it and make me feel small, worthless, tired, I have enough problems already why do you have to make more for me?
There is no day that goes by I feel angry with the world I sit quietly in my room I pray for a better tomorrow… How would my life be Without fear and sadness? How would it feel to be
I could always jump, you'd find my body in a dump. Body broken like my soul, for its spirit no longer could hold. I could always cry, sometimes wishing I could die.
Two lovers intertwined in a complicated web. One compromised by word. The other compromised by heart. One chained. One free.
As the sun rises andAnother day takes flight;The blessing is fulfilled again.As the dew begins to lite;My heart flutters,For my love is forever in sight.
Why must we fight Instead of being friends Why must we fight For what reason should it be Why must we fight When we're all the same Why must we fight Just because someone is different
I know she is tired,she hates feeling this way,She weeps and she cries,tears of pain day to day.She deals with much hurt,and is put through much strife,her skin sticks to her shirt,
I don't know where to turn anymore or where to go I feel like where I'm at has turned into a black empty hole How can I ever get out of this mess O how I just don't seem like the rest
I remember like it was yesterday that we talked, joked, and laughed and now that you are not here that is all in the past I can see clear as day a smile spreading across your face
Its always a secret We cant go here, we cant go there So and so comin, so we cant go I cant follow you on social media, cause people might know You put me in a little pocket and take me out when you want
They think she's happysee her smile and just assumebut what they don't know might kill herit might lead her to her doom Little do they knowher mind has the controlshe is slowly dyingsoon she may very well go In her eyes is the painon her arms ar
Don’t try to speak to me I have nothing to say Despite forcasted developmental trends My etymological roots have decayed Only half-formed ideas stumble lazy from these lips Misguided thoughts
I am from the brown house with the dead end sign in the little cul-de-sac.
I ask for your forgiveness in writing this to you, and I can assure it will be my final interference in this delicate matter.
I know the voices in your headThey've reached down into your coreI know the lies that they have said because I've heard them all before
Maybe it's time, that I give you a simple rhyme. A reason to listen, as my eyes glisten. I'm tired of the lies, those that binds and ties; my very soul from becoming whole. I may not be the poster child, but I wasn't raised up wild. Don't mock
Your thumbnails are very beautiful, I’m sure you think so too; You must be very proud of them, gorgeous, pink, and small; I can tell you love them very much, because staring at them is all you do.
Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me We've heard it, said it, learned it. But tell me do people choose to take their life because this rhyme is right?
As that horrible that gets closer day by day the more I fight back the tears :( nothing makes letting you go easier and knowing my memories are all I have left kills me, litterly hurts my heart so bad I'd rip it out if I could.
The perfect girl, That's what everyone saw. The one that everyone knew. The girl without a flaw. But when she looked in the mirror, She hid behind a facade. All the scars on her wrists,
Say what you want, do as you please for I know that whatever you doin ain't gonna happen to me. You can scowl,snarl, and glare but I'm untouchable like the air. You may say your wicked taunts and do your evil
She’s far from an innocent For deep in her past Lie memories in waiting, Coming on fast. The shame and the guilt Are too much to take, So she closes her eyes And accepts her fate…
Fireflies In a wide black sky You hold my heart I hold you tight Kiss my cheek Please don’t leave Baby, I’m here You belong with me. Summer breeze Crashing waves
You are the shackles to my oppression, more similar to my depression You say I can't succeed just as it says I can't be free I am oppressed and depressed.
Have you ever felt Depression? It's like a dark cloudy day. Everyday. That warm blanket you crave, Smothers you until you can't breathe. It's that tightness in your chest. Clenching.
As a little girl I played with dolls behind your back, Until that one time you caught me and I got smacked. You wanted me in school and make friends, But when I did the new friendship would eventually have to end.
I've been knocked down before someone knocked down my door. They been down a street where you didn't want to meet, as well as me.
I keep thinking about you. But I'm not sure what to do. Maybe If i stop dreaming of what could be.Maybe If i stop thinking of it as you and me.Maybe letting you go is the key.
My feet smell And neglect appears to be my only friend. People hang out and talk with me We share only words Though nothing articulate.
So heavy, My breath deep and aching in my chest. To go to bed And sleep, Not for better weather,
I miss that feelingWhen I felt the surgeThe boost of spiritsThe sound of birdsThe world was laughterThe peace, like rainBut since it happenedIt won’t come again
i want to read the lines of your hands as if they where peices of paper with a story to tell. I want to kiss your hands so that my lips could tell the verystory of which your hands plead to speak. I want to swim in the river of your emotion
We all cry for help don't we? We are in need of help for every little trouble or bump along the way in our path. But there are others in the world and in our communites that are in BIGGER trouble and they need OUR help.
Sticks and stones break bones, And they aren't always alone, Cause sometimes words hurt even more, Leaving behind a heart truly sore, And beating three beats behind,
My wrists... like paper. The knife... a pen. The blood it savors. The ink, it sends. My skin is torn. The paper is ripped. Blade like a thorn. The pen, it shifts. Every scar has a story.
I am the ugly sister. These are the words I can’t escape. I cannot escape the rejection, or the hate. I am the one that no one comes to claim. My sister says the muffin top will go away, that I need to work harder.
Come with me to the room of doors for some funTake a deep breath and open door number oneIn this room livesA teenage girlHiding awayFrom the cruel cruel world.Her eyes are hollowHer soul a shell
What do you actually see when you look into these dark brown eyes? Do you see a girl with happiness all around her or a girl galloping through a meadow filled with dasies.That's what you think you see but you dont really see the
I'm always dreaming, Even when I'm awake. In my dreams, I have control Usually... Until one day, There was a razor in my hands And I awake to lots of blood Everywhere...
lonely. oh what a word. one that you cannnot completely understand until you've been there...done that. and i know how that feels. it's like a part of you has crawled off somewhere and died. like the song you once sung doesn't sound the same.
Why would someone do such a thing? Someone please tell me why. He gave him so much of his effort. So much of his money and time. Between the two was everything. He'd helped him stand back up.
His Holding Into My Emptiness of my universe , while my mind is out of earth ! A start wont probably reach to my hopes ! While im here left in the back with a bag tht was left ! It was left to the wrong person
So many lovers have loved and lost, they never tried to fight the cost. Love doesn't conquer if you don't help it win, for love is a feeling that can't help but to give in.
The sun Never looked bright Anymore When you arrived Our souls Taken Right before our eyes The night sky Is Darker Than ever before When you arrived
We hear the kids they laugh at the weak They mock and taunt the people who are not passing or meek The taunted hide they can't handle the stress They feel stupid and worthless
They expect so much out of you And you wonder if they see you breaking Like how you parents do when they see you when they walk past your room at night there's a little creak of light
Love, love comes and goes without a trace It holds you, and leaves you when you need it the most It's everywhere and nowhere !!! It's magic, tragic, and fantastic
Walking aimless in eternal mysery I came upon a great mystery- A hidden pathway in a hill Gave my senses a big thrill. And so I followed the path 'till the top And found a graveyard in the stop.
Your Love is like the sun shining down on my face my heart, like water to a flower i could not not survive without it. Your Love is like a wonderful dream, that i dare not wake from. i am scared that
Your love is like the sun shining down on my face warming my heart. Like water to a plant i could not survive without it. Your love is like a wonderful dream, that i dare not wake from.
Something so unreal, it can't even truly be described. It has so many conditions that this world could never fulfill. This world is too imperfect to keep with the what ifs and alsos and sometimes and shoulds.
Day to day this pain arisesPeople don't realize that happy days are prizesHappiness is something I wish I could findBut when it comes to it, I think I am blind Day to day I wish I could riseFrom this pain that might result in my demiseI am sick an
Your subtle whispers scream in my ears exclaming hate pronounce my fears I can see your staring eyes looking through me judging, spreading rumors lies But I am strong
They hit me always They tease me and put me down Make bullying stop
I'm drowning. I can't keep my feet on the ground. I say "save me from this pain." But things just remain the same. There's no one else to blame for the scars on my skin. I don't think I can win. I can't hold on any longer.
I stand here touching the breeze in my hair, feeling unconscious full of despair, I feel the touch of freedom. You told me i have legs, so I walk. I stand here with the darkness in my eyes,
I sit in a world all alone lost and confused with nothing to call my own. Sweating my past as memories flood my head i want to leave because i have nothing to dread. I think to myself
ou claim to know me. Yet you don’t see my pain, my suffering, my black, shriveled up excuse for a heart. All you see is the smile, the overweight child, the kid that sits alone at lunch. You claim to know me.
Day 1: My feet hit the cold tile and my eyes strain at the board. I hear your monotonous bore, I think, I think, no more. I am just another one of the horde. Day 2: The straps pull at my back
You saw the ache under her artifical simper yet you sat and said nothing as her eyes plead for a cure to relive this agony form her casket everyday you watched her tear bare her skin in hopes of becoming free of her hollow soul and
In her eyes
Everything felt grey today, The sidewalk, the sky, what people say. Sometimes I wish I were a tropical bird, or that I lived in a fantasy world (with magic). That way I could conjure colour,
I get to school take my seatYou take roll while we all eat Our breakfast and listen to your dumb rulesWhich have all of us acting a foolYou slowly go down the roster You peer through your ugly bifocals that make you look like a monster You start t
Life sometimes can play tricks on the distracted eye. Sometimes you see the horizon but not the road ahead of you. And sometimes there is no road and you have to find your own trail.
BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!I wake up to my alarm going off...another day,another scar.
Sitting in this hollow room alone , Screaming , crying , cursing at whats unknown If there were some way to make it through the night If there were some way to make everything right I'd give anything tonight ,
Love is when you feel cared yet hurt. When you life is complete yet empty.
Walking to a court room at the age of 7 was very frightening. I knew I did not do anything wrong. I was getting adopted, but I did not have a say in anything.
We sat on the steps of my eroded muck stained porch. We contemplated our lives and our identities while sipping on unclean glasses. We laughed at my awful past of abuse, neglect, and insanity
Night and Day your at my side, my friend my heart my peace. Lighten my mornings, watching you run and play and chase. Brighten my nights, next to me close warming my dreams.
I cannot understand my current emotions on the relationship I am in, I don’t understand how I feel anymore. My emotions don’t talk I have to but if I can’t understand them how I can explain them.
Everything is normal, the people are in a hurry, the animals running around, my heart is beating. Then just like that something sets me off.
Hispanics are considered a minority because most of them are not educated and barely make enough to reach the minimum wage. Living in a world where that’s expected from you can be tough
One heart two different worldsOne body two opposite girlsOne chose love the other hateOne chose corruption the other faithOne always tries to devise a planThe other simply follows the great I am
Because The Sound Of Voice & My Lips Were Close ! You Told Me Just Repeat "Strawberry" My Heart Beat 100 Miles per hour! Not Knowing How and When To Say it ! Poor Child only 9years old !
Love is like a wild stormWith a shower of broken hearted rainIt will swing you like a tornadoFlood your heart like a hurricaneIts hard to love someoneThat doesn’t love you
I don't understand why you hurt me or make me have these scars you always say no one cares of course i'm going to take that to heart. your suppose to love me and take care of me but you havent been doing that lately
Knowing that I have an attraction for you makes me so upset with myself. How could I let this happen to me?
you've been here with methrough thick and thinyou knew i was hurtbefore i told you you fought my wallsgot yourself ini cant get you out nowno matter how hard i trydid not want to trust you
What's deep but very shallow? What's thin but very thick? What's white that could turn to black very fast? What could cause joy but then fear? Boom Boom, Swish Swish
it's possible to have a house- but no home. it's possible to be surrounded- and completely alone. i'm trying to concentrate- without staring at my phone. the scars on my outside layers
You see it all the time the loss of energy Sitting in a lit room and then a light flickers off, suddenly everything becomes more dim Except it's not as easy as changing a light bulb, or
I want to be perfect, I don't want the pain. I want her to be happy. I want everything to gain. I want people to disappear, her attention I crave. She makes me strong, she makes me brave. I don't ever want to argue, I don't want her to hate me.
As the years escape my eyes. You try to say your final goodbye. But your hand won't leave mine. Thoughts of you fill my mind. Life without you is full of pain, no laughter, no smile just gray painful rain.
A steady rhythm, A speedy pace, My heart now seems to race. A race, A fight, What we do in the night. Loving, leaving, I begin to start bleeding. Remorce and grieving
Steve Momphete 10/9/10 Mind Prostitution
He's a failure In my class he won't survive 17 and black? I'm surprised he's alive He's just a stupid football player Is that all you think I am? Just another statistic? Disgracing Uncle Sam?
I miss how you looked in my eyes that first night I could not recal anything else the way your soft skin felt on my cold hands The blurred memory gave me a rush I miss when we layed recalling the past
I dont understand why this can be, almost all alone in this journey. No one seems to see anything from my point of view. Only a few see my perspective, it is even harder when your
She’s kind Though she never really says much She smiles Though it never really seems real She laughs Though she never really seems to enjoy being around She’s here, doing what she has to do faithfully
Love can be a poison Like a snake wrapped around you, Suffocating you, Injecting the poisonous venom Those tears that hit your face, They burn like acid Why must this happen to you
I want to disappear I wanted to fade into the background...... I thought that losing the weight would make them like me...... They don't... I started to get more involved in school no one seemed to notice either.....
My mind is going insane; I can barely even think. I'm letting myself go, faster than a blink. Friends and family form a line that is longer than a mile; but even with them here, my life still feels like it's not worth while.
Look at my face, you'll see a beautiful girl. Look into my eyes, you'll see something hidden. Look at my smile, you'll see it isn't real. Look at my soul, it's the biggest pain you could ever feel...
One love doesn't last longbut here is one thing it is going to be alright once a pon agogo out and find another one when you are lonely everytime you like of him or her
Floating Leaping Screeching Clawing your eyes out just to Spite you Spite me instead I can't live the way you want Me to. The way you look at me Tells me that you want me to respond.
Im making my mind up to express. Living this way is just a mess. Laughing at nothing Is funny when its serious. Im Living life to the fullest So im a gangster. Living is dying.
and there’s a whole in my chest and it aches for you and I’m going crazy in my head, I don’t know what to do and I’m sad because you’ll probably never feel the same and because I’ll never see you again
I can't sleep; the memories keep me up at night, All of the things I should have said, Should have done, To make you mine. The thoughts of you won't ever transcend, The time you were almost mine,
You are my South Wind, There to uplift me There to surround me But never to falter. You are my Sun, There to light my way There to give me hope But never to dim.
I push so hard everyday I know it angers you so much to wake up knowing Im not with you no more to drive you crazy I wake up too but here or not you still drive me crazy
Maybe She Would Be Alive Today. If I Spoke Up And Said What I Needed To Say. If I Thought Differently and Choose A Different Path. Crazy Thing Is I Didn’t Think She Would Last.
She screams as the light beams pushing and pushing the wall of despair. Times of love from above is just like a dove resting on my shoulder. Times of love, Times of love, Times of love.
You ask why, but I cant give the real answer The story cant be heard No its not correct to say the things that happened Get personal, NEVER! Its inappropriate.. But what if my story defines me
Trails of gray blazing the untrailed canvas It's curves at it's masters every whim Success! The man says, as he puts it aside and reprints with the black. It's work shaded by the of ink
For Everyone who is in school. For Everyone who has been bullied. For Everyone who has been in a sport. For Everyone who is battling addiction. For Everyone who is working. For Everyone who is a parent.
I avert my gaze contemplative and serene we think the same thoughts memories come crashing back fake civility in hand.
Let me tell you that nothing is wrong with me,I have all four limbs and no deadly disease.No blindness or deafness and nothing that oozes,no broken bones or scrapes or bruises.
The time passes by, So fast. The light seems to, Fade away. I sit here, Watching, The sun rise, The moon shine.
Thump Thump even steps on the floor A rhythmic monotone inciting horror Who is it that makes such a beaten path Is it death or man with a thought to pass
Watch. Wait. Run. I Watch him walk and wait for his return. Watch him run and wait to feel something. Anger? Lots of it. Sadness? Not enough. Resentment? It boils in my blood.
Lost in the world around her The kids in school call her names, Mock her ripped clothing No one knows the truth. She goes home to a drunken father, A broken mother and a missing brother,
clouds are thick, the ground grabs It weighs you down, It tugs at you slowly pulling slowly drawing walking against the wind heavy feet heavy head forced back held back no movement, no progress
I can't move. I can't see. I can't breathe. Nobody cares. Nobody listens. I'm not me. I'm not you. Who am I? I haven't got a clue. Someone please help me. I still can't move. What's wrong with me? I have got a clue. Depression.
I am a silver moon. You are my world. If you do not desire this gravitational pull any longer, then I shall take myself elsewhere. I can find another planet to orbit my heart around. Someone who does not consider me to be a meteor.
Cold ice stretching over a fortress of falling beams. Rolling from blue eys come the diamonds of a sad day. Once strong the brick buildings fall in a crumbling rubble of distress. In a silent room a fire is ignited.
what seems so easy isn't to some makes them feel queazy terrified of whats to come speaking in front of a variety for a simple presentation those who suffer social anxiety
I am like a ceramic bowl, and this bowl has many assets.Beautiful from a far, but up close you see my cuts, scars and bruises put there by all the hate and doubt of the world.
The Inner Me. It's the soul you cannot see. The pain, the struggles, the beating, and troubles. I cry out for help. Suicide thoughts. No one there to tell me, stop. I'm am confused at the mind.
theres many ways to show love actions speak louder than words many people may recall the scene of pain to overcome pain forgiveness is the key.
Holding on to that one last kiss. Remembering what it was like to hold you like this. My heart is slowly burning to the ground. With the passion in the love I had found. Your words still linger in this place.
Welcome to my world Of lies,loniliness,hate, and depression My world of tears and loneliness Of fear and scars and rust-tinged razors That smell like fresh sea water somehow don’t satisfy me anymore.
A pit of despair embarks upon me. Dragging me deeper, catching my breath. Gasping for air, I grieve. Clawing for space, I breathe. It is only then that I notice my need, That I find what I grieve,
Everything in life is temporary, the people you love, the people you hate. Life, Love, Happiness, Smiles, Tears, Pains, Sadness, Doubt, Anger, Fear, Everything. Every emotion you have right now is temporary.
There oncewas a boy who rode my bus, with wide green eyes, who sat alone... and didn't seem to care. There once was a boy at my school, who was quiet but had the most beautiful smile,
You think school is all sweet and all. And you think teenagers like me are the generation to fall. But you don't understand that outside those silver gates. Life soon becomes a brawl.
Why are you so depressed?Your sadness only seems to festerI want to make your heavy load have less But first you need to clean up your mess
Broken Rear View Many times we alloy our curiosity to spoil of future, More often than not, We obsess over our rear view. Have you ever taken the time to think, What if your rear view-
The Hill That Never Sleeps Have you heard of the hill, That never sleeps? We’ve been properly acquainted, In my virtuous sheets. Watching-your every move, In search of flaws.
Baggage Claim To those who view their past, As a lesson. Simply sit back and do yourself a favor- Commit to confession. Sift through the bags which look- Oh so similar on the outside.
The autumn is upon usit must be an enrichmentof all that went before
I wish my life was over, My world made of broken clovers, Falling out of place, going into a dark space, filled with blood, nothing to love... No one can see through my facade,
Can a heart still break once it's stop beating can you believe me even though you know I am lying will you be there when I need you even though when your in need I'm never anywhere to be found when your in need will you catch me when I am
Your eyes are so stunning, that they could cover the night sky, and outshine the moon, and stars, and even all the galaxys combined. Your smile is so strong, it rocks me to my core,
3AM (One Cut) Don’t ever wake up at 3am It’s scary enough falling asleep Waking up out of a state of rest Takes a lot of energy mentally Like your mind gets tired, fatigued Overthinking starts.
I want a ......Guy who notices my sensitivityGuy who notices my heartGuy who understands my confusion and pain and where it comes fromI want a ........guy who confident. In saying i love you day one.
I remember the way you told me You loved me That it would never be you and I It would be we I remember your beautiful Smile I remember holding hands on the beach Walking for miles
It is five in the morning as twilight sheds tears down my face, The dancing horizon teases my mourning eyes yearning for sorrow But bleeding condescending sympathy The sun rays invade,
Do you see the pain?The pain in my eyes.Do you see the hurt?Hurt buried deep in my heart.Did you search to knowKnow what I have been throughOr did you just wishI let go and never looked back?
I breathe. Inhale. Exhale. Two easy movements. Involuntary. Necessary. The difference between two ends, Life, Death. Breath changes everything… I breathe.
I like you a lot but don't know how to tell you...why can't we see eye to eye? Set standards for each other? Everything is just so paper thin. With not enough time,
You see smiles they glisten, There's nothing else but listen Dark shadows, cold walls You hide and try to ignore the calls. You ask yourself is it worth it? Not one bit.
Your Kiss infects me like the flu infecting young children it finds me and absorbs through out my body taking a few days to leave my system forever i remember the 1st time the feeling so new
I knocked on the door just to listen and see if she was home For some time I waited, cold winds flowing past me and down my back my mind started to rome Alone is what I began to feel but then she came to the door
A minimum amount of words were said, and time was spent together. Before we knew it. Time was over.
Betrayal, Bruised, Left alone, No one to hold, No one to love, Blessed I’m sure, How can you be blessed? When no one loves you When someone toke your love. Forever alone. Forever apart.
A man who's life was strife by death left mights in his regrets. Life can be a pain and with punishment they may blame, but one thing that it gives, its forgivness for you'r sins. As the man shouts to death
how dare you put me in a box labeling me because i dont fit in with the hollywood image how dare you belittle me because im different i rather be happy being me then being sad trying to fit in with this asshole society
Is it my time? Is it my time to shine?Is it my time to die? On the outside I look like I’m doing just fine. On the inside, I’m trapped inside these happy lies. Is it my time? Is it my time to be free?
Tearful eyes. / Burning throat. / Stiffled cries, / So they don't know, / I scream inside. / I miss my home. / On my outside, / You'd never know. / I'm tired of sadness. / I'm tired of lies. / I'm tired of secrets, / That everyone hides.
Life turns to death, as the present fades to the past Its the bleeding of pure silence... The slow thumping of a partially broken heart.. The twinkle of a knife Hidden by the night
Gently falling down, The poem of my lifetime, It's never ending.
Her mind flooded by judgment and oppression Her body aching from hate Her soul yearning to escape the cage it was forced into She is only accelerating her fate She is only accelerating what is intended
Beauty is the eyes of the beholder That's why he always found beauty in my body And you always saw it in my eyes He was only looking for one thing; and liked what he saw
It’s funny how someone who was supposed to love me, never did. It’s ironic how that a person that I never knew hurt me. But it’s even worst that I hurt myself.
To Open Her Eyes When I look in the mirror I see a face The girl looking back at me is so lost She feels lonely in a crowded room But is suffocating in her mind What do I do to make her smile
I like how the cereal screams in terror as I put the little guys in my mouth Mmh how sweet, cereal blood between my teeth Snap Crackle Pop! goes the bones of the breakfast mom bought
I didn't know before how to light a candleTo set by the picture of us on the mantleThere was no flame to light the wayThere was no night to darken the dayThe monsters came to devour the heart
