I love sleep. From daydreams to nightmares, I could live in my dreams forever. No matter how vivid those other worlds appear to be, Nor how terrifying the chases are,
America who claims to be the one to set you free will only lock you up in invisible chains. These are chains that no one can see except the ones who go through misery. With the chains it comes with hate that will burn through your skull.
She is a land mass like no other, She is the Nation of Power, She embraced this misfit foreigner, Like a caring Mother She molded me...  molded me to pursue The American Dream.

The Canvas By Amanda P A blank canvas sits upon an easel No color, no words, no expectations
I am part of a lost generation. And I refuse to believe that I can rebuild the world. I realzed this may be a shock but " Determination is deep within" Is a lie, and "Fame  will make me shine"
Dreams built on backs of hope Cascading the minds of youth.    Openness blocked by boundaries of the mind and soul; And of the pocket of one newly born.    A flag hangs with no wind. 
Fought so long and hard that I've forgotten who I am, Breathed the dust of angels and choked on the sand, Wrestled with the devil and bled scarlet, heavy red, On the other side of Paradise, where I lay almost dead.

America Home of free and brave Everyone 'loves' America But why are we so divided?   If America is beautiful, why do we pollute? If America is great, why do we hate?
I rest in darkness and despairYet dawn cuts through blackHope floods in, answer to prayerAll systems go: we seem on track
People talk how great we are But do our actions live up to par? We preach freedom But just how true is our kingdom    We have the reputation of being the best  Standing out from the rest of the crowd
Make America Great Again? Sorry, I don't believe the vision. America has potential to improve. Trying to be great again means we were great once. When was that? What exactly are we striving to when you say "Let's Make America Great AGAIN".

Death is my only friend Silence is a means to an end Down the river we flow Target tattooed on my back The lions ready to attack There is no where else to go I've got nothing but scars
never ever will i write a poem that i need to put away and get out later i like the flow of the sink and the faucet of my thoughts that at the granite of my pencil, the faucet can churn a powerful stream of water

The woman on the left Lives like Proverbs' thirty-one. She bakes her bread each day With the rising of the sun. She knows what her tasks are, And how to get them done. She never is too serious,
Slipping fast on a winding road All your years of experience driving All the years of our country thriving Fall fast away When a patch of ice is hit When all you have is a stoney grip on a useless wheel
My back hurts it stings. I'm a miniscule part of my society, but everytime I see them fall I ache -- I seethe.
Decades of depression, in America We have been preyed upon, With the slashes of whips on Our backs, stripped Of our human and civil rights

America— The wonder of the West. The country when, at its worst, is the best. America, everyone’s dream destination, Tell me, what is destined for our nation?   The American Dream has become a nightmare.
How could you do this? Destroy the bonds we built This land was our land
Breaking news! This is the story of the year, a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see an indomitable empire torn at the seams Two armies facing off in a ballot box battle
It was a pleasure to see things blackened and change in the world the blood pounded in his head, his hands were playing all of the blazing and burning tatters and charcoal ruins of history.  
My nose becomes a leaky faucet whenever I eat soup. The bed must be remade each day because I sleep so wildly. My breasts are a treasure trove

Dear America, It’s taken me 17 years to compose this letter To figure out what to say Maybe that’s how long it takes to gain the courage To confront the face of one’s oppressor
America is, The land of the free… But not for me at least. Yeah, I know it can be really great. No I'm not trying to instigate, It's just…

Know Yourself. This life is not so easy, give time a tog to settle down for a reason. Realize it is inevitable to swerve out of place, like your first steps made, hardly to keep in pace.
We are all renters here Living in borrowed space Here and there, far and near For the entire human race
WE are clay clay carved by our beliefes  our surroundings the hills we climb the refusal to crack the things this year that carved my clay  that hacked away My grandpas last day
Underneath the surface Tucked just out of sight There is a dark and dirty place A place of endless night The sun has never risen The moon hides as well Just pay the toll Sell your soul
As days turned to years And faces grew lined  Time grew scarce And harder to find And somewhere between the tick And the tock The face of our God became The face of our clock
I’m from sunlight shining, Birds singing in early afternoon. The fortress beneath sheltering pine trees, Narrow paths I’ve walked a thousand times.  
Bored of being spoon-fed— Despair. I was wasting my youth, And I was aware. Gloomy, gloomy, gloomy, Couldn’t inhale the delight in the air.   Above in the clouds, I touched life again<
I am a wandering rock. Born from a world of fire, graced by beams of bright light, warmed in costal sands, discarded by a mountain,

With college approaching My sanity needs coaxing Musing my future- A dry, beguiled form of humor   Waiting. Debating. Suffocating.   It's the epitome of a plight They say is only finite
A year is the blink of an eye That sheds a tear, That makes things clear. A lot can change, And stay the same.   As the eye opens And sees the light What once was a blur
Times have changed and I’m aboard the timeless train. The clock goes tick tock and I watch dimensions pass me by ...In attempt to hold onto past circumstances,
My future awaits atop this wall, With slithering serpents and the highest of falls. I look to see; it’s a thousand feet high, And all I could say is “I’m going to die.”
Roll her up in the sheets of the night before. Light her up, watch her dance round your lips. She can’t be good to me, they say. Then why so sweet to my lungs?

I consistently identified comfort and company only with Solitude amongst the ashen and crimson stone walls of my home.   Years I spent, a myriad of mornings marveling
I anticipate one day, Someone might understand. That wishes I made, Would be your's to take.   The more I think, the more I care.
I was not the only flame beating I had another which gave me warmth We grew from each other yet became distant I grew faint and dim, I couldn't keep living like this The other vanished frommy life and I felt cold
Last Year, I was Drowning   Collegiate stress, Financial worry, Severe depression
To break free A suffocating bubble of pretense and fakeness I stepped away from friends who were foes, not an ounce of care they gave from my sudden apathy towards their happiness.
One year later I am no longer in the wings of her nest. I have learned how to fly, and currently on my own doing my best. Last year I was being fed worms underneath her beak, But now having to hunt for what I have to eat.
The Broken Hinged Door By Zoe Pierson   It’s seen the good, the battered, the blessings, and scorn.  The late nights of sneaking out, the arrivals of long gone people, the past, the present,

Each breath brings about A life enslaved in shadows Long days of one And time in scattered pieces   Afternoons hunched over

The excessive beeping shot through my ears That of a cellphone Rather than the alarm that brought me tears The controlling boyfriend is what I feared   His voice shot through the phone
We have a father in the sky but on earth we are orphans, in lands where contraband and illusions are important. Not I though - my eyes glows with spiritual enlightenment,

Days in, days out, Drifting on.Yesterday becoming todayToday becoming tomorrowAll waiting
Life revolves around it. It controls with its icy gaze; Or perhaps, with its summer haze. It comes at once, one single hit.  
How can a place so cold put on such a warm face? Gemini’s would even be surprised by the two-facedness. When will we come together as one and free ourselves from the races?
This year was like running in the country. Running up the tallest hill Just to trip and fall on the way down Laying in the dirt wanting to give up You get up anyways, walking home just to come back the next day

Such ambitions flow like seas of oceans, Flourishing like Beebalm's temptation. Degrading the captor with held potions, Lathering it with constant damnation. It's slowly sufficationg its airways, 
Up there you sit and mock me,  And your rhythm, Oh it haunts me, You resound within my skull Like a rock against a hull While I lay in bed at night You remind me of your might And I swear I'll take no more Cause you shake me to the core So I'll ri
One can only hope for freedom
The art of music quite defines The social spectrum that’s divine. Our broken world has suffered pain That Eco friendlies can’t contain. Desire needs for others help But Humans wont prevail at all
How did this come to be? Like the bird that forgets to fly, I am grounded, without purpose. I shout below, why? To know again,
I still hear the children playing, They have their own homes now. I still hear the horses running, They have passed away now. I still hear the rain falling,
gentleness does not come easy to me.tendernessnever sprung spontaneouslyinto my wildfire soul.  
We’ve all felt that pain, It Never seems to go away And we’ll just hide In our suffering Cause no one cares We’re suffocating
You are my sunshine, My grandmother’s voice is hushed by the foam of the waves. Her fingers delicately reposition a ringlet of hazelnut behind my ear.
I was so scared Because I liked you, I didnt want to. I didnt want to get back on the rollercoaster that had put me so deep underground, but it happened. Now we're together
It has been a really long year. Hate nearly covered what was good Sadness covered everything I have one thing to say It is not the end, dear I have survived this torment And made my life wonderful
When I was a year younger, I did not know how to float. I sunk into a deep ocean of heavy sadness. I unknowingly drowned myself there. I changed. When I was a year younger, I did not know how to swim.
Sprinkled and clumped like coffee cake,  Tiny tufts of beige create the mix of soft and coarse against my skin That makes the carpet tickle My cold, bare feet.  In a corner, spread like constellations:
you say it's such pretty hair i am concealed from the person i want to be one day i must be myself it's a feeling i have deeply within me   hide every aspect of yourself
    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  
My thoughts look better on paper. I write fields of daisies, But I speak an endless desert. A hurricane comes from my pen, But my voice has never seen rain.
The Last Leaf of Winter I Am The Last Leaf of Winter, Still Clinging to My Branch; Though All Through The Autumn, The Wind Howled, You Haven’t a Chance.
I am The pitter patter of raindrops On a window pane.   Where days pass Like drops of rain In a storm.  
Raging bells blow up my ears. Just 5 minutes more. The bells roar at me again. Maybe I can squeeze in 5 more hours of sleep In 5 minutes.   But then the stars command me To wake up.
I am a lens for I see the world in a different way I am a field of blank spaces where my ideas lay I am a thought that you are trying to read I am an answer to questions you need.
You don’t know me. I don’t expect you to get to know me much better by the time I’m finished, but There are often days where I see no reason to get up, And no reason to get dressed, With no reason to greet the day.
I hear people asking what the secret of happiness is   and I can't help but try to answer the question.   They say happiness is fortune... Isn't the love of money the root of all kinds of evil?  
All my life I’ve been hiding Behind a face that’s not my own. 4.0 Perfect The face of genius Who never trips or stumbles because
It can’t be bought,  So it can’t be sold.   It can be felt,  But it’s not to be held.   It’s something true  and never dies down.   It makes you wonder 
The rain slides down the window, A surface on which water may cling, perhaps, But gravity dictates that water must go down.  For water has no true foothold.   So, the rain slides, Quickly or slowly,
Learning optimism is learning a language you don't speak. It takes trial and error. It takes effort and focus. It takes acceptance and hope.   Stopping and smelling the roses- That's what I need to do.
My bed is soft My pillows are clouds But time is a-ticking, And I must go.   Why? You may ask. Stay. You may say. But time is a-ticking, And I must go.   The sun is shining
I scurry through this fridged night  Of darkness and eerie cold  Until I saw the strangest sight A lonesome candle, worn and old.   I swish a match under my chin and bring the stick to life
They lined the station like tchotchkes placed in careful disarray, Here between F and 13th, Red cheeked and frosted breath, Bare porcelain angels waiting on the shelf of a Goodwill.
I put the inanimate over my head, to protect my mind from gathering more unwanted thoughts These thoughts fuel my eyelids as they become triggers my lashes ever so slightly pull
The tale of a secret place, harken to none.  An unknown area,  exclusive to one. The journey there can be quite hilly, moreover, when I reach the summit, it gets rather silly.  
There are smiles in the skyLook closely, For the stars align and send messages to ones eyesThe beautiful landscape that a mere picture can not captureAnd somehow you, You make it feasible .Your beauty resembles that of the night skyShining brighte
They say that  Soul mates  Share the same wounds, Well, I'm sorry, My Love, For all the scars I've given you. 
The blend of word and sound 
Your bones are the bars  encaging your heart Your scars are the ink tattooed on your skin         Markings to remember         Markings to forget Somewhere inside the prison of flesh
Human minds are silly little models The birth children of originality And the forcibly adopted stepchildren of Society Cousins of melancholy
you are the sun behind the clouds,  the rainbow behind the sun,  and the galaxy behind the rainbow.    you make me feel beautiful.  you make me feel complete. 
I don't know what I don't know.That is why I never asked questions. All I ever wanted to do is "go with the flow",But then all at once I learned. About you and him,And you and that night,About you and everything I don't agree with.That day felt li
The racing of our imaginations --you argue, perhaps, that is our incentive?Lives without incentives are insane,and insanity with incentive is life.And how can we know what is beyond our mountains,
When I was young anxiety took a hold of me It asked if it could stay, And even though I said no it made a home in me It's deadly like cancer
When I first wake, wake from perfect slumber I dread that soon to be number The time to get up From the soft, warm, and inviting To the sky outside igniting.
The mornings are not my strong point School however is my main point. I wake up ready to learn I wake up thinking of a better life for there on. My view could be negative at some points,
You're beauty is like starlight, but more like the spaces in betweenBecause you're so much more than just a pretty faceYou're so much more than the precious pearls you hide behind
Moving Forward Yes, life can be hard And the world can be cold. At times you have nothing, Not a hand to hold. But we must look to the future, And the past behind.
The foreigner makes his way as the snow falls.   His feet, unaccustomed, are awkward and crude, and leave a crooked muddied trail in a vast and white field.
Let us talk about what makes me feel good. But this time, I won't share it on my therapist's green couch or my psychiatrist's wooden chair or to myself when I feel myself slowly start to slip.
I could tell you that the amber sunset Is enough for my eyes to pry themselves awake Every morning, Could tell you that the saccharine coos of birds stretching their wings
...And oh, he's pretty.   But he's pretty the way sunsets are pretty  because the thing that makes them so pretty is the very pollution that fills your lungs with poison,
It is very dark inside Sadness came and covered my eyes She covers my teary eyes, and muted my ugly cries Whenever I tried to fight back, she told be "Hush, dear" Wandering in the forest  A broken antler deer
What energizes one in early morning?             The favorite song drifting through the air             The symbol that the day is not for mourning,             But the beginning of the new, awakened by the music blare
Her love waits for her across the Nile, Where there linger a crocodile. Her eyes swollen and wet, Her heart is heavy with regret, She thinks about a goddess,
I greet the day still sleepy in a way waving towards the bright sun. While others sog, and slouch out of bed  I greet the moring determind to get ahead. Nine to five with no end in sight is what others do.
She saw the waves crash a storm against cheeksCracking hurricanes into men's eyesDroplets of rain trickled endlessly into puddles of veinsCreating a reserve of rainy day puddles to look back on.
Long Ago Days   The Chirp of the Sparrow, the Sound of the Thrush; Strike Me as Not having the Time, for Our Work a Day Rush.
I I’m a forest tree, not a loner T I share with many kits and kinds, Of manifold shapes, shades and shares, And with tongues differing in thongs That sing songs of chirpy beauty,

To declare release from subjectivity, To place an accent on my creativity, Several Issues remain a fight for change, expressed through only one thing. I rise to visit priorities, but to reside with this passion.
Happiness, the underestimated spark of an interest or a comfort,  the faint light  of the stars warming up our eyes and with that our souls.  For me,  this is  words on a page. 
She's a god among many With her swift toungue Her independent success Give you the vibe she was stung Her low self esteem Fueled by her curly serpents Assimalation causes her to perm
Everyday wont go as planned  But still I got to keep my head up When i'm down I grab a piece of paper and go and pick my pen up I just wanna smile I just wanna smile I just wanna smile 
I've seen many sunsets and sunrises. All unique and truly breathtaking. Each one was a blessing to my eyes.
Dawn Approaches   Bells shrill ringing alerts me to the approaching dawn. To lift the weary head off a pillow throwing off blankets that offer warmth.
Hope. It is the generator for accomplishments. Although, these might not be completely made. I wake up free of negative sentiments. Knowing that the sun rises above the shade.
Telling me to express myself that’s like telling me to wreck myself How can I expect you to help me and you can’t even help yourself I don’t even think I should call the police because they might think it was me

I am a balloon, the kind that children love to play with. The bigger the better, the more air the more fun; But the more air I contain, and the more I swell just like a strained balloon I will pop.
Bones tremble from thunder Eyes blinded, burned by lightning Blood electrocuted Hair raised, heart pounding When the storm clears Rain down my own tears As the music goes too.
i breathe. my throat is tight from too much singing and the anxiety that follows my audition -the look in my teacher's eyes is not responsive when the last note resonates

Ringing and Dinging,            an alarm of cacophonous singing, stinging                   my ears with discords that mirror that dreadful feeling when I wake.   I wish to go to bed, but little time is left
There is a room And in this room there are two boxes One box is big and the other box is small, Impossibly small, And you take a step forward To look at these boxes.
Is it looking into your past? Is it comparing your past with your present? Looking into your past is not the issue. Looking is living your past again.
I come home in despair To a world that doesn’t care I open my laptop to a world that does And shop.
to me poetry is a way to express yourself without feeling judgment poetry means being able to come home after a long day and write out all your stress and be able to sleep soundly that night
"Here, Raheem, take my guitar. You can be great." I've only known of Jimi Hendrix, and I was no Jimi Hendrix. I took the guitar that was given to me. I had no knowledge of this six string instrument. Mysterious, yet the brown wood was inviting.

i once met a goddess on a lonely road Knots of gold adorning her crown shining jewels as green as a toad Diverted all the way down   roses flourished in her cheeks As she continued to stare

I sing about my pain without ever breathing a word The melody carried by the pen in my hand The paper holding my lyrics and heartache in a crisp white shell 
The world is a garden Where the positives and negatives dwell. Where beautiful things can happen; where caterpillars morph into precious butterflies,
Some days are hard The buzzing gets louder My heart pounds faster In one instant The world caves in on me Drowning in the abbess of my brain I can't ask to be saved
A massive thermonuclear fusion reaction  Unloading a consistent energy payload  Bombarding those who revolve around  The skeptics say it's bound to explode

Tired of sleepless nightsAnd endless fightsAgainst time Against hateTired of fighting these wars

Poetry and I met in freshman English, and I hated her instantly. Neither of us were popular, but she at least had a reputation while I was still stuck on potential.
She walked up on stage. Her chin up, Back straight, Body leaned into the microphone.   A deep breath,
Shut up, Shut up, Was all that she could hear. The thoughts scratching and scraping trying to get through. They screamed begging for emancipation,
Strings of me are what girls want. White, pure, and ound. Though as I lay upon your neck, I never utter a sound. I come in many sizes, Pulled away from the sea. From an oyster shell to a jeweler,
I've fallen  I've fallen really deep  So if you can hear me please don't let me sleep Because there's something down here that's a creep  I'm not asking not to please  But please don't leave 
She asks me, Quieres café? And I respond you are too sweet. Too sweet to the point that I don’t have to take a sip from this Colombian coffee Because you helped me rise when I fell deep and saw nothing but fake images.

Shattered windows and slammed doors consumed my brain I was drowning in a dried up sea my heart was so dark like an abandoned train I screamed into the dark of my locked up soul to see if someone can throw me a key
I have a page, Confessional Slam, where people can send me anonymous confessions and I turn them into poetry.  Here is the poem I wrote for the confession, "Everyone thinks I know everything about anything and ask me questions.

Poetry is a tuning fork, it vibrates at an everlasting frequency.    Open the cork allow the emotions to flow with leniency.   2016 in New York  a young girl reads appreciably,

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
Broken glass Empty rooms Nothing left but open wounds.   Fleeting colors Hazy dreams Cannot know what anything means.   Blaring sirens Slamming door
Poetry found me by my bedside table, heart contained within a dimly lit mind, I could not find the light switch.   Poetry found a foolish girl, one with storybook hands,

On my way out the door, I tiptoe Making certain the only sounds to be heard Are the low hum of the crickets And the faint buffeting of the wind over soft grass
The morning after always brings more satisfaction than the previous night. Feeling like gods as the sunlight illuminates our copper skin Air, thick with content
I am a poet. My pen is my sword The ancestors and God fuel my every word Flowing out of this trident is ink from the depths of the ocean
I think of how the universe is made of theories—                assumptions and mathematical calculations attempting to shut down the human paradox and close Pandora’s Box,
I let you kill me. I let you destroy me. I let you stab me in the heart. And for what? To let you walk away with no words. And because of my stupidity... I'm bleeding out.
Dear sailor, how bright were the stars last night? Did you watch them dance like embers  in their everlasting fight against the darkness? Or were your eyes focused below

Dear America, Look past your built in pools, There are kids lonely and afraid beyond them, They have seen life sized doll pieces scattered on their lush green lawns, They have been taught to walk like soldiers,
The more dirt you throw on top of a forgotten beauty, The more difficult it becomes to find. Because then it gradually changes, Disguised by the rotting filth that scuffs out it's light,
In this garden aren't we all beautiful Why should it matter if I am a tulip Or a rose, a dandelion, sunflower Why should landscapers be able to choose what flower to prune
The American Dream May not be a dream at all Is being born wrapped into the star spangled banner with a red hole in it. To live in a world known to be free

I wonder how long we hold feud To what is red and what is blue Yet our eight legged branch can't walk On a single file ant line to the booth For the new insect order say to be behind the head
AS THE RACE OF MAN We lust after big words. We pine for the diction, calculativeness, creativity,
The world is cold. Made up of blocks of ice. You become frozen in place, unable to change. Nothing feels right. There isn't any light. It's cold and dark. No one knows where you are.

The words come from a dark place, on a normal day they do not come. The only place I can be is in darkness. Why do words only come from my dark place? Why can I not bring them from happiness?
More often than not The thoughts that revolve, my mind would block Time perseveres along with my ideas that never stopped The blockade, the obstacle, it was within me
Because there’s nothing else to do.  Because my brain is a horse and needs regular walking or else it overheats, dies. Words are sponges, blue and holey,  neat swiveled foams
On March 19th I went to a party accompanied by my first love; my soul getter I trusted him This man I equated as an angel on earth   So when I drank too much

One time when I was on the team I slapped into the net. I felt so bad I could have cried I knew I should have set.   But when the game was on the line My inner strength came out.

Golden sunset lemons, twinkly sliced unlike the first time I ran my pen, and eyes, dry. Puckers and sighs against a luminescent sky-- only dreams back then, something to imagine.
She painted the world In shades of blue, Violet, and green.

The color Ebony has become an abundance of negative spirit. Though the antiquity of the pigment speaks for it's achieving deeds, so does its' internal exertions.
  It was at the tender age of 11, In which I entered this place called Poetry Heaven. I had a little taste of Shakespeare,Dickinson, Angelou and Hughes,
You were a pen Long, slender, and sleek A sharp tip aching to cut through ink and paper   I was an inkwell Dark, mysterious, and opaque
I used to feel nothing but yellowThough lately I've been undividedly blueI write it all down on paperSo I can remember you
I can tell you anything with a Buzz feed article, the twitch of my fingers, and twist of my tongue. I can recite the history of Namibia, essays behind the Bolivian revolution, the place and time of the death of Alexander Hamilton.
Too cold to swim in But perfect for your stares   She is the glistening white Of the snow Blanketing the warm sand Of her soul
She is a city, of great lights Great hopes, And internal fights.   She is a city Cluttered with pain From those who’ve done the wrong things.
She is peace. The peace of my mind The peace of my heart The peace of our time She is peace.   Lord Keep pain from her.

Inability to communicate To Elaborate To Speak It is quite a terrible fate  One which should not be cursed Even upon those that you hate Yet here I was  Crying
We are the leaves upon the tree    We grow weary and die Only to be born anew We prepare We guard ourselves We turn dark and brittle Then we are scattered We lose our way And all that we have known We are filled with ice and pain We lay dormant We
A cocoon of black and brown Bleached white bones beneath The soil is a gaping maw Reclaiming its own  Maggots become your mother And your father Your flesh turns to dust  Everything you ever were Every smell, every freckle Every ugly face you’ve e
To me, she is a she, and she is as powerful as a woman can be. She eases me like a mother does, settles me down from my bouts of madness,
After you destroyed me I wanted to cut off your hands Rip your fingers to shreds Tear your lips off of your face Gouge your blue eyes from their sockets Slice your legs to bits

4th row, dead center. Hush, hush, hush - he's coming. The silence erupts. Not-quite-a-man folds the shattered pieces in his hand, In a way I suspect he could catch nothing else, And then he opens his mouth.
Dear Fear- I apologize for the silly rhyme, But it’s time we had a talk. You see, I've been meaning to write this for a while

I remember being lost; In a dark, ominous realm. There were random faceless beings surrounding me. They all began to speak simultaneously, Telling me their problems at a constant rate.
At the age of fifteen I lost myself in the cold of a crowded highschool. I didn't know what was cool, I didn't follow those that ruled. Halfway through my freezing freshman year I discovered I wasn't truly lost,
A silenced voice, with thoughts that are screaming My pen bringing fire to a forrest that's been bleached I never thought much of my outlet for writing I'd pullen the plug so many times
What if we exchanged bags instead of handshakes? Objects instead of greetings? To piece someone together, would we need to use the brakes? Could we not delve into their bag and forgo any meetings?
I mold shapes into  sounds, visions, concepts, phantoms with that intimate touch  of the soul kneading words.    I began with bulky building blocks under the guidence of a sixth grade teacher.
I gaze blankly into the sky and the Tears are dry. Maybe it’s just my uterus Talking—the smooth, Smug woman’s voice on the ad tells

The tree clings to my skull, Gradually shattering it. The roots dig into my brain, Forming a robust shell around it. I am captured. My thoughts stay in the invincible barrier,
   I was once a Mo(u)rning tide, Lifeless due to the moon's Departure. And so I'd push back into the Sea and hide, because my purpose was unsure.  
Little Raccoon. I think you were born too late. You entered this world on the wrong date. I feel Scared , Sad, and Angry for you. You're entering the world that will forever judge you.

Winding, narrow paths. Tears streaming down her sad face. Lost in the thick trees.
Brainwaves whir from corner to corner of my cranium,Causing me to think in a different key.
Her skin illuminated like a new Lamborghini under a spotlight, every curve displayed with exotic, breathtaking beauty.
Arthritis makes a comfortable home within the crevices of my mother’s bones, cheeks stay on fleek though, skin stay on fleek though, what are wrinkles to black bodies?

You. An assimilation of adrenaline-spiked cough syrup into silk thread linen, You. The mutual trench warfare aftermath lying in craters of dystopian closet space.
You need to stop Stop trying to build bridges out of ashesYou spent so much time Setting things a blaze Did you ever consider the reasons You left everything back there And you rebuilt Moved forward

If I was a color, it would be red.  I am silence, Silence that suffocates,  Silence that numbs the ears,  Pure silence. Yet I was born into a blue body.

What does it mean to be a hero? What are the true colors of strength, When it’s shown as passing through obstacles Without a scratch across the S on your chest? Superman shows all strengths to save the day,
The crimson petals of the past, remind me of the colour of your lips, the rain of your weeping.   Never did you listen, when the angels warned you of my curse, all I touched went toxic,
Nightfall is honest, For when the dawn comes, the sun awakens, I too.   The truth dies with rising gold, a new lie spun for all's eyes.
Someday the time may come, when I, no longer able to distinguish the line between reality and nonentity, will accept the illusions and leave behind this materialistic world. Could you pull me back if I slipped away? Would you catch me if I ever fe

Flash-lights turn on. She stands center stage, clothed in a smile. The audience is a roaring lion; Its prey makes no attempt to evade. She tames the lion gracefully, and praces away.
Her eyes brighter than fire flies In the night skies But more dangerous than streetlightsOn a school nightYou look pretty strong  Probably turn into stone She could be Medusa's clone Eyes will steal your soul But her face more beautiful than gold 
In a place where we can't trust ourselves can we trust anybody else.
When I peer closely, I can see you there Your tiny head pokes out above the ground Your fight against the world is newly found, As men will question, “How much will you bear?”

She was in the back of my English class A short girl A girl who had the beauty of the sunrise in a summer morning She looked at me and my heart skipped stones

I was told to write  my feelings down,  so I inked pain on a piece of torn paper, instead of etching  it onto my skin. I wrote  with ink instead of my blood. So why  did the tears  fall the same? And why did my heart   ache the same?  Thoughts cry
I finally poured the concrete And solidified the past Into neat little paths Of "Remember when..." And "Life was simpler then"
Manipulative and sweet How shall I describe it It lives on a street Or perhaps a tar pit   It seeks happiness

I walk and walk my legs feeling like a crumbling sand castle I start to feel dizzy seeing the animated birds and stars spinning around my head like a halo  
I absolutely need Love. More than food and air, I thrive on love and attention.  Amare. Upendo. Renmen. It drives me and motivates me to live life in a way that is pleasing to all that know me.
There is nothing more beautiful More beautiful than you The sun is a mere old and rusted penny compared to the glow of your Iris blue   If I could put your sweet voice in a seashell
I am young, impulsive, wide-eyed, and green, a sapling wondering which way to grow. Still needing some support, somewhere to lean, staked to stand tall when the strong winds do blow.
In this hurricane of a lifeI spend my days drowning,standing sideways against the waves.Every time I get back up,The currents get stronger.I gasp for air,Only getting a mouthful of regret.

If I were lost in the middle of the sea and I don´t have time to plan my trip. There is only one thing that I would like,
You are a child,             and darkness is all you know. All you have in this world are the earth's             teeth that you cling to in your sleep, and a candle on your bedside.
Begin with a blank canvas A piece of paper with no identity And scribble a word or two   Make your memories into a photograph Using only what you know best Words   That is the axis
What would I bring? No I wouldn’t bring a book Or a phone Or a computer Those aren’t important to me I’d bring my journal

The Candle I see the flicker of life before me. The tainted flame burns brightly in my eyes. Yet darkness keeps me from obtaining it.

I picked you up only one year ago, had no idea my talent would show. Watched countless videos, eyeing the frets, learning my favorites, made by the vets.    From Zeppelin to the Stones I mastered each song,
Colliding thoughts barrel through my brain. Questions of life, spirit, and pain, love, happiness, and evolution. Theories spill out as if formulated by prophets, and poured from the rolling waves of black sky and neon stars, into my dreams.
Dancing dancing the days go by her shoes now worn in the corner they lie.  She danced until she could no more, through the days, around this floor, she danced and danced for all who knew her, she danced the days, while the music flowed through
Everyone is blind because at night you don't see anything or anybody by your side You struggle on your own therefore you need to catch your pace and know your flow If you don't, you're likely to fall behind
I thought you were like a piece of  gum that stuck to my shoe, when miles away, I opened my mouth, and people asked me, “Where are you from?”
I find my mind will change itself. My body will decay. My thoughts, my dreams, my aspirations turn to low vibrations and whither away. All of these material things that some hold dear to Heart...
  When I think about you there are so many things that make you something I can’t live without.  
Would you like to know what I need? Guess what I need fully, and not even partially? The very thing that keeps blood rushing through my arteries
Walking on the street or tryna keep a beat, All I really need are some shoes on my feet. Preferably Nike, but I ain't picky. Some fresh white converses With red laces. Or maybe some Air Force Ones to keep me fly
Many misty mornings I CAST into the deep sea my net,   Thinking...perhaps, that ALL my efforts might pay my debt.
It saves me. It's noise -  Systematic noise -  Noise so primal that it enters my body And grabs on to me. It latches on and feeds me The connection between it and I 
I turn your words over in my head Like I slowly turn the pages of an interesting book. I hold them delicately in my thoughts As if the word fragile were an understatement To me this is utterly fascinating
With love I survive and grow and thrive For all pursuits need guidance, And my soul was made a contrivance- Meant to collect the love and compact it Into the diamond known as life  
Crystal water and golden sand, sunshine and peace of mind. Such a beautiful paradise, it’s almost easy to ignore the floating wreck
the poem series I wrote but never published - accumulated over about a year and a half.
gasping for air is necessary after long straides alone  with just the piddle paddle of thougths and emotions the world around you overwhelmingly sucking every piece of you it can taste.
We see it living  justifing people destroying one and praising others, offering grief, sorrow, and jubilence It defines an individual for however long its vitality is.
My skin is hot stranded becoming something im not   no one in sight loosing my might loosing my fight   lost   my mother's voice soft and sweet
When I go sleep, all I can think of is her face . Her gleaming smile that lights up the darkness of my room even when it's just a thought.
Bad things, good people, my existential thoughts roam It is probable Unanswered questions attempt to block my path home   He is love, but love does not seem evident It is probable
I'll often sing a pretty song It's deep and sweet and not too long Huntsmen come and huntsmen go But they'll never capture me you know I'll never trust you, I'm out of reach
Standing on the highest cliff, Overlooking the forest, She nods to the caring hawk That wonders what could possibly be wrong With such a perfect creature. She watches over the sleeping cougar,
you are nostalgia, you are oxymorons, an indifferent feeling almost the same as the love I carry for the moon. you are the record player in the corner of the room,
If I am not in an environment that does not make me grow I will unroot myself I must find a place of  Water and Sunshine alike
sleep has become a boring chore,another thing I would rather not do.I'd rather have the moonlight rap me in his dainty arms,then feel the cold lack of presence.but that too is long a distance,
Never houseless but always homeless, Music managed to provide a sanctuary Even if it is temporary. Always hungry but full off of food for thought, music was always nourishing. Cheeks sallow, belly hollow,
A rose is a rose A heart is a heart A mind is a mind A soul is a soul A person is a person And no one can change that. That in its self, is a victory.

Heads roll, faces spinning before your eyes Death to Louise the thirteenth, They yell Death to the Monarchy, They chant   CHOP.
Sharp angles jump into existence, Fingers tap against a hard surface. The whole world open to our assistance. Movies, pictures, books, music. Purchase! The door to everything in the palm of a hand,
Love, I’ve made a mistake. A graven error Fit to the terrors And tremors befitting the quakes.   For me, the buildings are falling

My fingers float,  page after page. Waves crash against the boat, they've gotten harder with age. But still I sing. When I'm lost without a map, and the world around me 
An open letter to the first boy I thought I couldn't live without,
I lay in my bed covered in blankets. I feel at home wrapped in them. I feel protected by their warm fibers tickling my cold skin.
I once saw two childs stand face to face & take hold of each other's hands. As one would fall, the other would struggle to keep their balance.
I watch as she says she loves him The way he loves isn't love Why can't she see  He beats her when she does something wrong She says she'll leave him But it's not true
I can't live without chocolate. Chocolate is like the soul to my heart. It makes me happy, like the chimpanzees. The way it melts like butter as the flavor explodes into your mouth.
That first blinding sting of your leather touching seven when I realised. "Why this mistake?" you had groaned "Such a beautiful soul" I had crooned LOVE, a mere sensation to me FEAR, a mere creation by you
She is the puppeteer and my heart the puppet, Manipulating every string with expertise, Plucking away at each string ‘til it gives way to her commands.
I could not make it through the day If my Music was not with me  My earphones are the windows To a world that keeps me sane   Amid the chaos that surrounds me  The crowds The Screams and Shouts
Have you ever been been short of words? You have, whether you took the time To consider the impossible eventuality Carefully lain before you.  Now think, in that moment, in that tiny forever 
I'm alone in this world, of this I'm sure I'm in a play called life, messing up my part knowing there's no encore Things bother me now, that never did before
A Voice, Barely a whisper, But load enough to be heard.   A light, Barely a flicker, But bright enough to be seen.   A shimmer of hope, A flicker of joy, A glimmer of love.
I Heard My Friend Say She Didn't Like Talking To A Girl Because She Acted Like A Oreo
My love,  I loved u then, I love u now, It just happened, I dont know how. But, now to say I cant live, Without you, Would be a fib. You are my life, My love for you is true,
Though this entanglement of bones covered by war-torn skin is the containment of my very being, I suppose an amorphous frame would not alter my passions,  would not fracture my soul,
The one thing I could never live without... 
I sing the rhythm of the night. The possessions I own are shared with those I love, and theirs are also mine.
The enlightenment heightened my slighted psyche, she judges, it’s like the purveyor of our pain and purgatory is a catholic church, no better yet, an oratory.
Insomnia seems to grace me With his presence each night. Loneliness often deafens me With the words he left unspoken. Anxiety holds me hostage, Invoking memories I want to forget.
My face, distorted in the sun under my right eye a deep scar remembers the pain of abuse, and the tears he has left me inside I could not cry under this mask, yet I find another route
suddenly, perception is changed. the fatal flaw it carries becomes visible. but, dear friend, be wary.   for the things we can see are not the things we can be. we must change.

"You Motherfucker" She said as she let the darkness within her That she suppressed and kept hidden for so long, awaken. Rendering him powerless  with every word she spoke.
Your soft touch and sweet words keep my dreams alive, Dreams of tomorrow and better days to come, Days where your smile isn't anything more than a kiss away from reality, A kiss away from me.
Our dreams scattered in a ocean of lies disguised as pretty little dandelions  Because with everything beautiful comes its ugly past  Our dreams floating in the wind

Empty. Quiet and still on the inside. Everything stuffed inside the closet. Fire ignites, change happens.  His eyes meet mine and the flame gets fanned. The fire rages inside us.
I reached out  And held on to the whispers  Of my past  With time prying away at my Soul  Afraid of letting go  And falling into her Grasp
Picture of the most beautiful women you've ever seen. Taking photos of the city lights. All you can see if her pale skin glowing as she clicks the flash button.
My grievances await atonement, but it never arrives I continue to battle the monsters inside. These macabre beasts from the infernal grave Lash out and unleash unbridled rage.
My family is the woods. My dad is the dirt, giving us a solid foundation to grow in. My mom is the tallest tree, overseeing everything that occurs. My brother is the opposite bank of the creek,
When dark times come I hum a familar tune to ease my nerves My hands are shaking  I am breaking  I am on my knees ready to fade   Music enters my body and I am saved

My life was not always this way I use to sit only feeling suffering and pain I'd cry for hours myself to sleep as I feel my soul slowly slip From my body into the dark abyss of the cold world
I need this The thumping language of my chest pumps life into me I remember seeing butterflies flutter, Feel their wings brush my insides with the kisses of innocent love
If I were all alone No one around or a home All I would need is knowledge. To help me understand life and get me through college. I'd need a book. Pages and chapters.
Illuminated by the infinite sublimity Of the seemingly half-real form of this man’s body weighing her down, She sinks beneath His solid shadow,
The wind whispered to me through the pines, I could hear it racing through my mind. It told me its wonderous words, So small it was almost unheard. I wondered how long it had traveled,
baby girl I see you got the finest ass too bad you ain't got no class your lack of education shows desperation you seek for fame instead of self gratification.
Pulling all the strings one by one, the puppeteer controls this town set he has built by himself. Making his creations walk around, keeping their heads held high to show happiness throughout this set.

The Abyss so dark and cold sucks my heart in and almost has my soul. The Abyss traps me inside and people pass by without a word of hope. Some push me in deeper into the Abyss
And like the ocean you were gone again no longer licking at my shoreline with waves covered in admiration or adornment. The tide was low
You scream those hurtful words that cut and bruise my already scarred skin. Burned skin. Burned form the light you never let me see. You see? Seen. Seen but not heard and also not seen.
Some people think my religion is crazy, but, the foundation of my life, I can't live without Because even on a deserted island, my thoughts would always turn to Thee To my Savior I believe, without a doubt
The eyes reveal truth, Hate, passion, where the heart fails The eyes prevail.  
The World we live in contains endless beauty, though it's often obscured from the human eye. Acts of endless violence and unfair judgement result in mutiny, 
Ruby, rose, cinnamon and scarlet paint my body in dancing fragments of light as the sun closes her left eye and hugs boundless mirrors of sea,
how am I supposed to feel, when we live in a world where it's a crime to feel? when I was a little girl I was happy, I was bold, I held freedom, despite what they spoke.
The tide changes twice a day on most beachesA gentle push and pullBeckoned by the moons constant sway.
Here I am Locked in here with my thoughts, My mistakes making fun of me. Slam My memories have now joined the party. They torture me until, I succumb to sleep. The nightmares have more fun,
Tighten your tie my dear.  You're big day awaits.Its time to try outFor the corporate job you hate. Now,slick back you're hair.Put on your  glasses.It's time to cheatAnd lie to the masses.
Being born a drone stings. It stings with a distasteful feeling. Having a destiny that is kindly rolled out for you on a red carpet of despair. At least I know where I'm going.  
I wanna let you in on a little secret, I AM BATMAN, not Bruce Wayne, just one of two faces, Harvey Dent, caped-crusader of the night, dark nights, no sleep,
I claim you all mine, arrogant as Manifest Destiny. —Sandra Cisneros, “You Bring Out the Mexican in Me”   Apostrophe,
Don’t give me a look From the side of your gaze Unless you can smile at me With all of your face   Don’t whisper to others When I am not around  Unless those same words uttered
You...... You men are all the same Get what you come for and than leave And than what am I supposed to do ? How am I supposed to get up and start over? Your all the same Using me and pretending to care
 You're my strength, My weakness, And everything in between. Your look, Your touch, Your kiss, Your gentle whisper. My senses are enveloped in every way. You adorn me as I adore you. Yet your mind is what I crave.

I can't live without it. It's been with me all of my life through every emotion  and feeling. At every stage. On every stage. It lets me express myself  in my own unique way.
Nothing is for sure, yet emotions and affection almost define it all, it is you, to climb and fall, a mountainous path behind your braw, to doors that dance a timeless ball, opening for those your mind has flawed, and help again like binded laws,
I am the queen of what ifs Sitting on throne of could've beens My fears are my loyal subjects Escorting my dreams to the gallows My ambitions are now prisoners To my court of procrastination
Cold blue water at my feet, wading through the waves. Glancing down at my hands, hanging at my waist.

I could live without almost everything  In fact, I could leave whatever you would ask me to, but my mother Cliche I know But she is the one thing I absolutely can not live without
All I need is all we need For I am not separate from the whole I am not detached from the array of pieces.   All I need is a world full of centered souls A world crawling with warmth, radiating with heat.
Let the tumble weeds fly let the Lillie of the field die I cannot move any farther all I need is Him,   as though the pain is not enough my head is swinging because life is tough
I had a dream  It was like Martin's  It was a glorious dream  filled with smiles and cheer  I had a dream  It made me happy  it was better than i thought 
Cracked lines grew from my feet and scoured the grounds. The land was dead, and the skies were unforgivingly black. Like a thief,
I know why the caged bird sings. First comes the panic: An invasion of the heart takes place. Faster it spreads, with each locked door and
A Droplet - A Concoction of BrineFlows from the Foreboding;A Hansel of DistressA Signal of Fear.Swivels and SwervesCreeping and CrawlingClink Clank against each StrandDripping from Down Under;
A million swarming voices,A thundering, roaring crowd,The silent scream of reason,Deafened in the noise.  
If a wilted Lilac smells of Marigold, does it retain its identity? If an Antirrhinum sprays itself with the perfume of an Ivy, is it forever faithful? 
 Judging Eyes,Eyes that pierce the soul,Eyes that take a look into the very being,In which I am. Eyes that look upon me,And mock me.They mock with such impuaty,My eyes begin to weep. Weeping eyes,Eyes that water seeps out of,like a trickling creak
All I am is my music All my music is who I am I don't write it to get famous I write it because I can When I was to afraid to say it It is everything that I've felt It reminds me of the good and bad
The green and blue was once so iconic. The days of love and saftey too soon became chronic. A brown hue rolled in. Only the ones blinded by money continued to grin. Foreknowlegde gave the blurs a clue.
Soft. Quiet. Kind. Loving. She was a little girl. A shy soft spoken child, Scared to speak out. Scared to tell her thoughts. Scared to be herself. She sat alone at lunch.
There's a river I know, in the land of the dead, where many call home, and others may dread. There's a city I know, where the parties are gold, where the liquor is silver,
Somehow I always end up at this road I just keep driving I drive until my soul starts to fold Every time you leave my body is shivering It gets colder than cold And I know it’s not right
 O sweet coffee, I adore thee, Providing energy for tough days, I hope the day never comes when we have to part ways.  
Your words whisp’r allure, They beck’n my retrace. My eyes, how they wander,  Seek solely your gaze   Deep canyons before me, Owned by ripples darting quick Met by a smile wry
We, the humans, a species clothed in grey, Powerful at birth but mundane with age, Forgotten magic, lost in the race, Slaves of our own hunger.   What a prison, this world is,
My mind of youth, days of past so confused so deluded. Unknown grounds rocky roads, departed souls. Entwined in a world of poisonus minds, Life's trap door tryna fade the pain..The pain of life, life's pain plan.
Like Puzzle pieces. They are as precious to the writer as legos to a child.  A concept, some organized nonsense you dreamed up,  brought forth,  given shape. Naive, complex,
I've always been the type of person who insists they don't need anything. Depending on someone or something has always been shameful and embarassing. I have never seen the merit
All I really need is me.   Just me. I am not conceited. I am whole.   If you were to remove me from society
I live in a world full of deaf people With nonsense parents always unaware While their child cries up in their steeple They neither hear nor do they even care   A time of life, a time of truth
I’m the ugly brambly bush I sit in the dead field With all the dead grass I’m surrounded by weeds And no gardener dare tend me  
I am good and kind I am a brother and a son I want to be successful in life I am happy when everyone is happy I am a hardworking student
Weeping Willow, stop your crying, Look up, now the sun is shining. You leaves will turn brown, your sadness will spread. For dark, evil thoughts are stuck in your head. Desire to grow has disappeared
When I Perform My spirit takes the world by storm.  The curtain opens and I ascend up into the clouds. I transform into a beautiful being. Bright and loud. My heart thunders up in front of a crowd.
The stars on your arms Reveal the heart You wear on your sleeve. For if every star is every wish Of which your heart was truly dreaming, Then the constellations upon your body

It’s hard for me to focus sometimes This ongoing ringing in my head, almost like a chime My mind is going a mile an hour And at the same time trying to have a balance of power It’s hard for me to focus sometimes
I sat silently, both feet on the dash,  The windows let in a  hard breeze and it tickled the tips of my outstretched fingers.  The farmland seemed  to fly by us as if we were the

7:36- my alarm goes off and my eyelids are cement walls that are being pried open by a mother who’s only reasoning for doing so is ‘because i want to’
where did you go? I thought you said you'd always be there I guess "there" was unspecified you forgot to add "at my convenience"   so where did you go? did you find another person to mislead?
6 Feet Up wear a golden, studded, shiny Crown. 6 feet down nothing but Muddy, Stinky, Rotten ground.
I swear that I would never forget Your form quietly returns to space What else can I do besides avenge you?  
Massive extinction of species Are hurting you and me. They call them “Red in the tooth and claw.” This makes a question for the law.
Twelve scores ago  Our Fathers created our home It used to have thirteen rooms, Now it has fifty It was a place where some can be free
A vain bird flying- full of hopes yet flightless In the midst of nowhere in the skies she searches For a life she has to live; For her own kind of air to breath.
The gun fires and instinct takes over as I attack out of the blocks, a mighty grizzly hunting my prey, powerful arms swinging 
Laughter drips from our mouths, like honey, sweetening  the room   The sporadic rise and fall of my chest
I was four when you  first became sad. Mom says that’s why you came to live with us.   The doctors call it depression.
My skin, the cover of my soul’s pages, is soft leather binding, knitted together  by the Expert Craftsman, protecting secrets from            
There is no winning  in this war with myself   Weapons drawn from every direction gun loaded bows ready
I met you on the road of Longing, As you took me hand in hand, My heart burst with love wide open, And so our journey began.-   "My Kings, my life is yours, I have lived to this moment for you,
  Holding silvers and golds into place on your neck, Keeping notes and to-do lists on a refrigerator in check.  
Although things couldn't get any worse, I realized that my fragile heart couldn't resist the harshness of this world any longer. Though the vastness of freedom in the universe was at my reach,
Depression..Do you know what it feels like?Here, let me explain.You're submerged in a deep crepuscular ocean.
Troubled and tired and did not know what to do Confused about religion, pleasures and promises of the world Looked for answers for my dying soul and a place to rest because I felt so blue

Life is stagnant nowMisplaced is how I feelMy heart churning

Like the cool breeze, the years flow. Along with the memories, I watch them go. Day by day, I write in my journal, letting the memories, by pen, show.   My love for the past will never end.
She was beautiful Brighter than the sun And she was precious the boy knew she was the one   Beauty queen, you know her type, big city dreams A girl that is up all night  
Too tall for her age, slightly chubby with a hint of orange Shy words but harsh thoughts “Such a sweet face she has” Stuck in her own bubble of rejected desires
Don't you go fret now hon The kingdom where children go hand in hand Blue glistening oasis in the sun The perfect wonderland   unrealistic hope obscure dreams in the mind

A shot of colors blare into the blackened night The sound of firecrackers blinding us from reality. Once the people from the big star in the sky,
When I use words to explain my depression, I use those of others. I claim to be a writer and yet I become so certain that what I have is too little.
What I am What I have become For eighteen years I have become The product of those who live, Those engineers, unaware of their invention Unaware that every word, every look,

Lace weaves around her limbs like a Black Widow’s web. A serpent in the grass... She watches the funeral procession pass from the church window.  
You trudge through the daily life, budge through to make a life   Try to say goodbye? It doesn't work that way you've come this far just to dig your grave?   You're smart.
Walking down Bryn Mawr, it doesn’t even matter if it’s late at night, the cat calls echo off dents in vans,
Its sitting in the middle Of a rustic forest day by day Dead leaves suround it Hardly no sound comes out of it

  I do not remember when it happened. I cannot recall the precise moment when I lost interest in coloring books and playing dress up.
As I laid down to sleep I had a nightmare. I was brought to a world that I could not bare. People treated so badly, it truly wasn't fair and the ones who could change things, were the ones who didn't care.
Pain brings the saddest days or the happiest moments Pain of sacrifice is more bueatiful then a childs pain turned into a starlit lotus If you lose pain you lose focus
I am a cannon about to explode A screw about to come out A bullet to the heart A broken shell   I am a stick of TNT lit at both ends
it began with a spark lightning struck and i fell in love  the fire blazed uncontrollably  flames and i danced wildly untaped untrained untamed but free   Then they came
Cu cu cu cu and it is not the clock. It is my head trying to find out who am I. Driving a tractor and plowing the lands. Bringing the fruit of our homeland. Who am I you might ask?
Whenever the clouds Of pain and sadness loomed, Whenever the eyes drowned in tears, Whenever the beating heart got scared, I asked it,
Wonders. That is all we are. Constantly wondering to something new, something wonderful, something different. Something that is not us. We use things to distract us, music, writing, the tapping of a pen, but I cannot distract myself.
We are our own suns. Wait, I take it back. You are mine.   Your mind casts a light upon mine, so that my vision is spotted. it puts me at ease, yet it tortures me all the same.
I’m afraid I live without seeing What I see is only white noise White noise, a rooted ceiling The ceiling trusses will be destroyed
Let the grind begin, There seems to be no way to win. From school, to sports, to homework, Their parents are hiding the knives and forks.
People body shame people. Why do they do it? Do they have other things to be worried about? This world is full of mindless delinquents
Maybe it wont last that long, Or maybe our reationship will stay strong. I'm guessing you feel the same, But don't worry,you are not to blame. This is just the start,

As I sit in front of my computer watching some short animation,it occurs to me that for days, weeks, or some longer duration,my mind and with it, conscious thought, had been on vacation;
I asked you, my friend, to meet me at night And hoped against hope that we'd be alright. On that day I stopped watching myself fall; Despite what you think, I remember it all.
Lost I am a lost soul, a helpless child. Depression controls me, while death waits for me. Every second I dream of my demise. I die in silence because my screams hide behind my laughter.
Suicide. Fake smile. Dry eyes. Scratched Wrists. Bruised thighs. White pills. Rope tied. Gun loaded. Suicide. They say it’s a permanent solution, to a temporary problem.
I called a thousand times last night But you were never there I wore my voice out crying But I know that you don't care What happened to the kingdom We built from blood and ash
The cannons resound.Their deafening ringing smothers my voiceSilences my questioning thoughtsLeaves only the orders I was given.  
I am a person. I am a person who has come so far. I have fought in a war that involved no weapons Only thoughts. I have battled against evils that only existed in my mind. And I know that I am not alone.
Independence is. Independence is finding a place. Independence, is losing hold of what reality existed before. You’re hiding inside a tight locked case. And why? Because you want more. More approval,
A statue of metallic human shape, posessing life and tongue of silver shine. Adept and witty speech of gilded shine, observant voice that no one could escape. For praise, it sings of glory sans mistake.
I am the silence that you do not notice When noise fills the room I am the one who listens and watches As where others would act I am the observer who decides what Action is needed and what is not
