Here I sit, My first job... Application on the table next to me. I fill it out, Not sure what hours I want to work, Or what date I'll be available, Or even if I'll get an interview.
I’m scared Not of the when and where But whether you actually cared I'm not prepared for a harsh truthThese days all we have is a misled youth
its the fear that eats away at me this feeling between my legs it isnt arousal its fear its the sound that eats away at me this feeling in my chest it isnt love its fear
Broken wings Shattered piece of mind Trapped on Earth Unending time No way back No way home Surrounded by evil No place to roam Good is evil And evil is here
Darkness envelopes within the soul. Consuming first from the edges like a t-shirt stained with blood We look into ourselves for hope
Hello Darkness,
As I gaze into his eyes I can tell the difference between your warmth and his. I compare his love and yours And that’s when I realized
Over the clouds, radience I see; Under the radience, a nest; Over the nest, a fire set on the tree; Under the tree, a hunterat his best; Over the hunter, a need to flee; Under the fear, the end of his quest.
Every time I look to my watch, on my wrist, I see the scars that remind me of my past, The cuts that haunt my dreams, The memories that will forever be there, Reminding me that all I was in life is an failure,
A white cloak wraps around me I’m not cold, not on the outside I pull it closer still Maybe I can stop the cold   I see you walk away
  Fear, something everything is born with It can’t be washed away or forgotten Whether it be a child’s fear of monsters in the dark
Was it me? Could it be? A violent storm inside of me? It wouldn't be.   Yet it feels like so, no matter how many times I say "no." I wish it wasn't so, even my heart says "no."  
so many emotions my body can't contain  continuously being suffocated like an un-oxygenated flame if someone would put me out how grateful i would be for my emotions--never ending--are shifting like the trees
I fear of tonight I fear for the drive home Not of what I will come home to- But of what may happen later on I fear of closing my eyes and seeing something Beautiful something miraculous 
I don't know how to write a poem when I don't know what to say When I don't want to stick around but I'm too numb to run away And I don't know what to say because that fear was all I knew But I don't feel anything now and
the monster in my dreams who is it who tortures me? with no answer to my plea  a silent scream I will release  because of what I see, in these grusome scenes I am wishing they would cease 
I've got the scars on my heart to prove my pain After this I will never be the same You say I only have me to blame But you, the liar, should feel ashamed I've got scars on my heart to to show why I cry
I am a bird I am free to fly wherever I want But I choose to stay in my nest There are people out there who's job is to hunt But my nest is the best and I choose not to stray I love my nest
Sad little boy how could you stay sad little boy you ran away from the life you left behind the lies you spoke the harm you'e caused the pain you've caused in knowing...  
Haikus Inside, there is war. The heart and mind, They quarrel. Like kindred beings.   Fell between the cracks. Shortcomings, All too common.
Painful yet joyous, Love can cause smiles and tears. It's what we live for.   Can't live without love? Love gifts you to feel alive; while risking heartbreaks.
I have you fooled. You can do this, It’ll be okay, It’ll work out, Just more lies through my teeth. I’m a foe disguised as a friend,
Mr. Fear said,             “Look for your feelings inside yourself,             But don’t plagiarize from a bookshelf.”   I wonder if I can. I suck at writing. It’s almost like I’m fighting
You.. You were so beautiful.. You were so beautiful, but not like your attractiveness,I was attracted to you for you gave off the feeling of home.. Safety.. Love.. The feeling I needed. You were so beautiful and so large..
Hunting tools, Fire, Coexisting, Art, Boats, Wheel, Guns, Electricity, Phonograph, Gold, Evil, Conflict, Hate, War, Heartache, Fear...
There are some things I just knowThoughts come fast and thoughts come slowEvery thought of you twists into meLove's everlasting agony
It has always struck me as odd, the idea that “loving you” and “losing you” are only one letter apart. This small difference is proved
      take it step by step                           I say when I feel like I need to run        take it breath by breath                           I say when I feel I took my last one        take it hit by hit 
Stranded am I, by this enslaving isle of fear. Captured am I, by its fell whispers in my ear. Where can I go? Where can I run?   Surrounded am I, by the ocean of worry.
Its been 1 year and 1 month being with you, being a boyfriend... Do I love it? Yes Do I love you? Fuck yes Do you love me? Yeah...you do Are you beautiful? Oh yeah
To live without contact is to never feel a thing, To live without humanity is to throw away compassion, I shall never live without human contact. I do not crave discrimination, corruption, or demoralization.
Fear is hazel. It looks like the scared soul screaming behind the eyes. It looks like muddled puddles of tears.   Fear is hazel. It sounds like the muffled purr of a cat in pain.
I need fear. Fear drives me. Comfort hinders success. I have never worked hard than when fear was just behind my heels.   I don’t believe in being comfortable while working hard.
Author's Note: I am extremely proud of this poem. I entered it into San Mateo's City Arts contest and recieved an honorable mention, and didnot have any intention, and did not follow the theme. So I hope you all enjoy this poem.
writing about Death without beingunoriginaland depressing ishard. for  
i wake up to pale sunlightfiltering through my pink curtainsstaining my eyelids a sleepy rosemy fingers wander to my bed framesmooth and white, embellished with seashells
poison tears Rain, rain, go away,Because of you the pain will stay.Slit my throat, cut out my heart,Leave me here, tear it apart.
Tangled in words unspoken, Cut by dreams that are broken, With open eyes I stare in wonder  At this world so sundered. I'm afraid to speak, Terrified to dream, For my fragile heart is easy to shatter.
For a very long time, I was alone; not because I wanted to be, but rather because of the way that I would stare at the sky and be amazed by the clouds that would float like tiny castles in the sky.
It is something that is invisible and difficult to see yet at the same time you know something is wrong with me the feeling of an invisible knife that pierces through the heart
Alone I sit in the dark, Cold, broken, torn apart. Shackled to a wall of fears, Tied down by my own tears. My voice stuck deep in my throat, I reach to grasps the words that choke,
Love is such a common thing in poetry, Or rather should I say lust? Because truly what does love have to do With those things that are discussed?   But my poetry is filled with pain,
Love, What is this thing we call love? Does it even exist? Some say it does, Others will say it doesn't! Do we really have to go through such horrible heartbreaks to find true love? Do we have to make ourselves feel so horrible to find that one pe
Love you I can never not Or never ought Nor never thought I'd ever not be able to stop Able to fight Wary my flight
Sometimes when I think about you, I feel slightly disappointed in myself. To know that I let my guard down; to know that I let you in without thinking twice about slamming the door shut behind me.  
Can you imagine what it would mean Were I to follow you in the hunt? Were I to put my hollow dreams Out into the sun with a strong-willed punt.  
Fear, fear of not knowing this feeling. Suffocating, stripping my breath, my worry pulses reaching farther. Is it pain or an insane addiction that sharpens my breathing?
Blink The worst things happen when All I can see is the back of my eyelids Blink But blink fast or you'll miss everything But how would you know? You're eyes are closed
I'm out in the streets, blowing off steam. My body tall, my body lean. I wear a hood to better shield me from the night. I never knew to someone, it would bring such fright.
The mirror's peers peering  Into the glass mask erected to hide  That he takes advantage of their selective hearing  To conceal the burning hell inside  Terrified that the mirror's fears blazing 
Heavy breathing  Emotions seething  Mirror stumbling in the darkness  Chest and lungs heaving  Reflections causing pain so heartless Now crying, curled up and screaming    Panic   
If I showed you the happiness that you do to me, would you stay? Even just for one more day. Cause I know I'm a wreck lately, and I've been nothing but a pain. Do we have anything left to gain?
fear is the mayor and the villain in every heart, clasping closed on faith he snips out everything you believe in and replaces with worry doubt, and despair- hope is all gone
He held the gun to my head And asked me for my innocence. I stood there, silently memorizing his distinct features. His deep, dark black eyes had a certain murkiness like the reflection of the moon
I wish I could eat my pen. And the ink inside it, and all the paper in my notebooks, And all the books I've written tens of thousands of times Over and over again in hopes of becoming perfection.
All I need is a life without fear. I fear my life being taken for a small reason. I fear my life doesn’t matter to everyone. I fear spiders and snakes.
I remember the first time I cut like it was yesterday, Even though it was my freshman year of high school I had tried earlier in my younger years to do it, But I could never quite build up the courage
With stained eyes and blurry vision I tried and tried with much precision But no matter what I couldn’t do it, I couldn’t take away the emptiness I felt However, I did gain a deeper understanding I can barely articulate,
I'm tired of all these morons acting like a philosophic class These people, more like sheeple standing lonely in the aftermath Thinking if only they can get the holy that is up for grabs
I see so many people with their closets stuffed full  Full of so many skeletons And the shelves of their heart are stacked full of skulls  Just staring Into the cold stone darkness  The void of their eyes look to the void that's deprived  Of happi
The unknown is what we all fear Oblivion, nothing, an endless dark path we all fear that there will be nothing after this that once we die we are gone forever
It is not the ocean I see in her eyes, But the radiant Moon, The contellations that define our galaxy, And the Sun we endlessly revolve around. She is infinite, Lost in herself as I long to be.
Tap, tap, tap Or rather, thud, thud, thud Lub-dub, lub-dub The throbbing beat in my chest Uncontrollably echoing the chime of the unknown Reminding me of what I have to lose
Are we really afraid of death or is it fear of being forgotten? Are we really afraid to fall in love or is it fear of getting hurt? Are we really afraid of knowing strangers or is it fear of being left?
I am purplexuated Simply by the untrue realities Perplexed at how casually we say the phrase "how are you?" And how often we say "I'm fine."
I looked into my eyes one day Stared right into my soul But scared to go that way I turned around and fell into the black hole
Something that I can't live without is the idea that my child knows I love her, and that I'm sorry.   I was 23, too young to be Your mother Living a life Wild and free Reckless, like any other
5 fantasies fuel my fascination 4 familiar fears fixated on my faults 3 thoughts that thirst for thrills 2 talents taking time to transform into   1 soul that is mine to claim
My greatest weakness is fear. But it's not just any fear, it's a disease. It creeps and crawls onto every decision. It beats me down into indecisiveness.
I'm alone and can't sleepThere's no one here but meI'm stuck with all these memoriesIf they could only see
"What is life? When someone has the power to take it away? What is love? When there will be so,so  many heart breaks? What is it?  what keeps us going? Up the endless current that we're rowing,
Jumping from my car I grab at stuff spilling away from my grasp And I do my best to avoid the unmake-upped gaze That undoubtedly would appear in the rearview   In a half jog I pass a middle-aged man
"A feeling of fire Deep in our bones I'm not the liar  With a heart of stone  But go ahead, Call me out,  On somthing you did Go ahead and shout It's not like they believe you 
I hang here on a chain dangling fowards and backwards  I am the punching bag Harder than a pillow, safer than a board  Punch me when you're mad, punch me when you're bored 
"Find yourself         Your not from here  Your fatal flaw                Your fatal fear  Find you friend             Keep them near  Into the depths  Over the edge you peer 
"The soldier  Wounded in the fight The lawyer Finding out whats right The paster Showing others light The family Holding on so tight The author Giving courage when he writes
Can I bring good into the world? Or can I only bring pain? Can I do good? I swear I only cause others pain no matter what I do I damage the ones I love And cause a catastrophic disaster at every home I end up in
Eyes turn black No color to be seen Once hazel now just plain black They are like an aliens Or those who are possessed Walking like being possessed Acting as though being torn apart
The sands fall wastefully, Across the charcoal floor, How? I ask, with a harrowed sigh, Might I fill the glass with more?
Life Easygoing. Nurturing. Energetic the Tinkling of a Laugh Music to my Ears   like the Leaves of a tall Pine                       we are green                                 Full of
It is painful, you seeTo watch as the peopleI grew up with and underChangeBlur from who they wereAnd not often for the betterIt feels as if my family is a landmassThat is breaking apart
The time has come my friends, for stories to be told for bridges to be sold and hearts grow cold. Dark caresses between sweet fingers. These smoke rings I blow shatter the crisp clean air.
Have you ever lied to a lover? Just to convince yourself That you would never look at another Especially one who may look a little like yourself Have you ever cried about a lover?
There's something I need to tell you, My story is short enough to expose.  I am no saint,
I sit here in the corner not wanting to breath I feel like I have no one here to protect me Hearing my mother scream and shout
stuck between cracked heart and broken ribs lies fear no whisper is let slip without a quiver a lionheart won’t last without the spear   of courage loud as red in hot summer
i think of you and the butterflies, swarming my stomach, swim up and up to my throat in a tornado.my gums are growing flowers, making meadows of messages i can only wish to speak to you.
I never would have noticed the Abscess on my elbow If they had not pointed it out   I strained to see it Red flushing my skin Darker than leather   O, you’re right
Soft as moon you walk a rope between life             and death And I never know             where you will fall   Broken ropes bloody blades you try to scrape away the pain
Looking past the landscapes there stands one dream. One final goal that you know deeper than the cliff you're standing on you want one dream you know. The trees are greener the grass is taller
Self esteem fizzles, Popping bubbles like tiny glass, Shattering myself worth, The clock on the wall strikes one, Darkness makes the room gloomy everything turns grey, As I close my eyes stars,
On a painfully thin edge, and trying desperately not to fall. Constantly swaying, constantly breaking, and rebuilding, and reconvincing that just jumping isn’t the right thing.
I'm scared Scared of what's to come Scared of what has happened Scared of what is happening Scared of what could happen
Suddenly these streets are looming with dark entities.A few of them are made of choices left undecided.Some of them are made out of sad unrealistic hopes.A great many of them though, are made out of memories.
Sweet songs,    sifting. Hold on,    hope’s in you. Dear child,    keep your lips widely speaking. Honey,    please smile.
i'm not upset i'm not upset i'm not upset i'mnotupseti'mnotupseti'mnotupset i'mnotcrying i'mokay i'll be alive tomorrow and life will move on and what i'm left out of and what i don't get
I have been looking and searching for someone Life just seems like it doesnt want to show me that special someone I ask but i get no reply I help but get no thank you I ask myself is it you?
The words you have to say The feelings you can't shake Fear will tell you, "Wait," Because Fear is not afraid She does not hold back or quake She does not waver or make mistake Fear knows what she does
I'm scared to let people in to let them know that I have a problem to see if they can help depression is a taboo subject especially in a christian home because its not a sickness
Grandpa bought me a package of makeup; "Keep quiet about this," he said. I didn't see any wrongs so i did. I handed it back when my chest grew heavy.   I caught my brother obsessed with a boy;
A thousand times they escape my lips  Throughout the passing of dusk and dawn They slip by too fast sometimes Leaving only cruel regret I cannot measure the harm they caused Nor the joy they brought as well
To be scared is to be alive. It is the thing that stops us, Prevents us from harming ourselves. It’s why we don’t jump out of windows, Why we don’t stab our eyes, Why we leave spiders alone.
  Restless Fear by Christian Betancourt   Throughout the silent gloomy night. The bright and bold moon shines. Rays of it's luminous light reflect upon
"Make me a sandwich." Well, I would rather not. "Cover up, slut." Umm... no. "You throw like a girl." If you say so.   Ignore them. Don't retaliate
He doesn't love me anymore.After all the pain he inflicted, the lies.All the other women he swept off their feet with his infinite tales of bullshitAnd meaningless "I love yous" falsely comforting them in his arms.
Red
Everyone has a different label for it When you finally hit the breaking point When you become so angered You can't control it My family refers to ours As red We call it red Because that is all
Is what I want what I need? Will you fill the void? They say more than him is greed But I want a voice Does that make me faithless? Am I too immature? It’s what I address But nothing is sure
I lived in a world where i only watched Where clouds rise like kings'where sunsets bow like jesters before them And the moon watches hed been offered kingship once but he declined For power is not worth a monsoon
Poetry cannot be taught, nor beauty be described Neither can you see in me something that defined The colors of my skin. Scars are tattoos in many ways - permanent and painful.

All these marks. All these thoughts. All these memories. Brings me even closer to the edge. Nothing is clear anymore. The second-guessing. The cloudy state of mind. The shaking consuming my body.
I fear that I am a mistake a mistake of God.. and one day He'll realize it, then I'll disappear. No one will notice, no one will care, some may even be relieved..
My heart skips a beatFeelings start to flowI stop myself from fallingI'm scared to let them grow Time heals all woundsBut what about trust?I bet he's not after loveAll they ever want is lust
They say it gets easier as you get older That you stop being scared and your only fear is being late to work If that's true, then why am I sitting here rocking back and forth
With summer laze and winter days we wend our ways  in the silence of the night. And creeping still, thoughts mill amongst the dying of the bright. But what comes will be and what be will comes
I do not eat my friends You eat my friends I can see their ends Sometimes... people stab my friends they feed my friends to their friends I can see their ends
When the song plays I see my treasure, the person who I care about. A bitter sweet song that gives me a sign that you are still waiting for me.
Before me lies an endless maze
I am intrepid Forward is the way I go I fear nothing Though I may take it slow Life runs by in the blink of an eye And I would be ignorant to not show Who I am On the inside
A cloak concealing untold woes and pain,It casts a shadow on each sunny day and brings rain,A drape that adds the wrinkles to the brow,And snuffs each chance for happiness one is allowed,
Air so strong Though none breathe in The awe of dreams Which come from within   The choice is here What will it be? To dream a dream Or die in fear
As quickly as I fell into your abyss the waters parted and we stood starring at each others soul. Our universe being born. Like a falling star with no hope of making it through we watched our worlds fail us.
Mortal blood of a broken life Fiery passion ignites its end Turning away from light Thy will darkness shall bend
From the darkness, I feel your hand Reaching from the mists beyond My heart fails, my mind paralyzed   The room is dark, sheers cross my face A veil into the unknown  
I don't want to die I do not want to die I have tears in my eyes as snot runs a river. There is pain in my chest and in my gut. I don't like pain so I don't want to bleed.
There are things that I am terrified to tell you, in fear you may think less about me. But, I think it is important that I do tell you, if our relationship is to truly be honest. Please, read all of this before you say anything. 
I don't have a number for how many times;But I remember running...I remember harsh lighting in tired eyes,And middle of the night, fight or flight car rides...Phone calls and ringing;Then screaming.
I've always been afraid of love.
My name is curiosity Hope is my cousin, and fear is my mother
'H' or 'H'  I just can't tell The click and clack Won't serve me well I hear it come It comes so near Across the track I sit in fear
I'm not into the drug scene. I'm allergic to a few drugs.  Im not into being a slut. I was once treated as a sex object.  Im not into the latest thing. I was once so deeply involved so I could breathe. 
I wish the leaves of the trees 
There are nights where his arms find my waist, 
And it's not the cute kind of fear, not the kind with butterflies and giggles. It's the tyoe that puts a lump in your throat,
I am everything yet nothing. I wonder about my future. I hear what haunts me. I see only what I want to see. I want more memories than regrets. I am everything yet nothing.  
I used to think I was brave. That I could be anything I aimed for. But then life hit me, kicked me, shit on me rolled me in dirt  and spit on me. I wish I could be brave again,
Feelings of yester year haunt me. Emotions tucked so far in  the folds of my heart they are almost invisible. Yet I cannot keep them from encompassing me. I feel a longing. Strong and familiar
      Mommy the demons in my head, Just will not let me go to bed.
Friends with benefits What's the benefit When I'm falling in love And you're looking down from the cliff
I guess we can call it fear   Fear of ourselves   Fear of others   Fear of our appearance   I guess we can call it fear  
I'm afraid of the heart that shakes in my chest It beats out of tune and it makes me a mess I wonder what on earth is happening to me what pea in the mattress is worrying me  
Somewhere on the highest mountain
The pain in my head runs so fuckin deep
I’m not as okay as I said I was I’m taking the pills, I promise But I still feel like there’s not Much you can do for me now.  
Hypothetically, if I told you I loved you would we still be friends? If I promised to keep a promise but didn't would our friendship depend? I'm speaking hypothetical and never intend to hurt you.
You know that feeling?   It's funny and dishonest,   And you should be able to laugh at it.   But it creeps up on you with taunts of isolation,
I'm not afraid of the darkI'm not afraid of heightsI"m not afraid of intimacyI'm not afraid of death I'm afraid of losing my sense of directionNot being able to see ahead
(note: relating to someone that I know. also I don't know much about poem structure, so sorry it that isn't good) Fear. Anxiety. I fear anxiety.
Scale the wall. Fear is hanging. Fear is a father's silent grieving Scale the wall. Fear is the absence of truth and compassion. Fear is the multiple layers of doubt. Scale the wall. Fear is universal.
ouch, wait was that pain real or in my head?Why am I in my bed?...... This isn't my bed....Please let there be red bull or Gatorade in the fridge...... noI love dick- thank God it's removable
Fear what is it? Who just fears fear? What do you fear? fear is a dead baby to a mother Fear is a beating father Fear is a F Fear is the boogymonster under the bed what do you fear?
Mirror, spotted with age and time. Rust begins to spread, but you see yourself just fine.
Are you the you I wanted to be back when I was me, or do you do what you do because you have to?
I get nervous when people don’t text me bac
When we were first together it was all so unclear. I wanted you so badly, but all I knew was fear. Then you held me in your arms and whispered in my ear.
I think I'm addicted to 
Give me a second and let me please think,  Nothing in my poor mind is making sense. I can't close my eyes for more than a blink,  And I do not know what all it has meant.  
From darkest days to blackest of nights, did we crawl. Blind and stupid, with smiles on our faces and our hearts light as feathers. Safe are we by the dogs we do feed and fear. Though we know they bite and tear.
It comes so quickly It leaves me weak and helpless I try to talk Nothing, as if somebody hit the mute button My breathing quickens As if I just finished running a marathon
The time has come and I must leave,  To join this young and eager crowd. I have much time ahead of me,  And those I love will be made proud.   I seem to know so less about
Each hope I have rests here; My dreams, they’re still inside. For though the hope’s to fly 'Twill be a long, long ride.   Though music sings about me I fear to dance alone.
The pencil’s metallic probing tip
Without Her I would be alone,Without Her I would be lost,
I'm empty insideMy heart was ripped out of me
into an eternal abyss that no one even knows how far will it take me? how far will i go?
He put a razor inside my lunch pale Along with heads or tails I know he's hinting death As I hide behind my veil   Need a pair of clippers To cut my cutthroat nails And I red pair of scissors 
Rain falls from above Cleansing all impurities Washing fears away
  If you are too silent no one will pay attention to you            he said                    don’t be afraid of your power  she repeated   But fear permeates every fabric of you on days like this
  She left in distress Her hair up in a mess To her lover, she will never confess The thoughts she is thinking about Only lead discussion to shout   Deep down hoping he will find out
I once I had  a team building exersize In which we told the team our biggest fear   when it came my time I froze not because I was afraid to tell them my fear but because I couldn't choose one
Life is happening. In the city, in the wilderness, on an island, or in the desert. I spread my arms out to their farthest reach. Exhaling all of my fears and inhaling all of the joy's I am about to experience.
Tick tock, tick tockThe clock is screamingMy tears are sreamingIs he here tonight?  
Silence is the enemy, Never too far away. Other fears have begun to flee,  Yet it seems to linger and stay.   Why must quiet fill the room Every time I go to speak?
"Pursue your dreams!"  chippered voices encourage as mine pleads for guidance, "Just do what you love."  Easier said than done in a restless world where every tune is heard except the one within.
This airplane is on fire and it's going down.Soon everybody on board will no longer be around.I'm really scared because of the trouble that I'm in.I'm praying and I'm begging God to forgive my sins.
Our bright blood covering up the well stoned ground, Away from what I know I'm being led. I cannot comprehend what's all around, My home, my city, Carthage is now dead.  
Fear hung tightly in the air, clouding my airways and thickening my lungs I gasped for air but it felt like water crashing into my dry mouth in oxygen's place
The day I first met you, I will never forget It was a chance encountering Not one I did expect   To me you were nothing, A rumor, a myth, To me in my world You never did exist.
One day, a while ago, the sun was shining a bit too bright for my eyes, and for fear of not being able to see and to protect my face, I put sunglasses on. And well, you see, I am still wearing them.
She sits there, thoughts swirling around her A hurricane of hurt and pain There's no escape. They follow everywhere. Haunting and creeping through her daily life
I don’t want to let go
He's the one that wakes me up
It's dark again. I used to pray I used to say it was all pretend Then no one was watching.   The lights went out My body was sucked away I couldn't go back I shouldn't go back  
I never knew strength until you held me in
There comes a time when there's no way out, The fire's barely burning, no one hears you shout. There comes a time when the sun doesn't shine, The shadows move in, clouding your eyes.
You know, there are moments in life when you just look at something that has happened and are disgusted by it. These moments happen far too often. It changes our view on life, and we become bitter for it.
Walk me through your mind,  I'll read what you are inside, You'll be surprised at what I find, You'll set your preconceptions aside.   I'll you what it means to be solitary, 
I think there are some who insulate their walls with a bulletproof misery and call it home Who turn on heel and run from this or that, here or there, that they may not reap what they have sown.
Right here Right here I stand Right here Right here I am Right here, right here I am right here Look to your left Look to your right Try as you might, you wont see me flee
I don’t feel like normal people (Or at least, I don’t think so) Simple emotions, certainly Happiness, sorrow, anger I run the normal gamut With the others of our race Feeling a thing
    You knowing my thoughts,
Go on, do it I dare you Eliminate the innocence Illuminate the sky There’s no need for your presence? I can assure you that’s a lie How could this have happened? I invested my trust in you
I remember you taking aside one day and telling me that one day I could be normal And ever since that day I aspired to be perfectly normal, for you
  Fu Manchu, a caricature,
How could you forget last time? Remember the pain? The manipulation? You were pulled in every way. (But look at that smile!) Yes, very nice, but the last time you saw a smile like that
I've been thinking about death
I rise with the dawn and dusk alike
Fear is just a lack of knowledge, so gain some knowledge on that spider on the wall and overcome it.
Lights on   Lights off. Then
With an abundance of sighs 
Sometimes, things hit a little too close to home too close for comfort other times, things hit home with a resounding boom, you'll hear everything come crashing around you
Fearing the Future
I was a deer stopped dead in its tracks. My head pounding;
Define okay; then I can tell you
Tidal waves greet me on the misty ocean shore Years have passed since I have last been here We didn't recognize each other Nor did we recognize the looming darkness  Blanketing the thick air
When a house is dirty, we clean it. We sweep away the dust and scrub away the stains until there is nothing left to remind us of the wreckage
Above all, I am a coward. My friends, my family, they would say differently They would say something nice, something sweet, something vapid
I cannot do this
I am sorry
I think I started my new life As an anorexic angel. I woke up to my chapped pink lips Breathing snow that looked like ash
Can you really just wander so much?
Every day, millions of us take a deep breath before stepping out that front door. We take a deep breath before walking up to our friends, talkign to new people, putting on that smile.
End Of The World  
His eyes look so deep into mine that I don't dare look too long I'm intrigued yet scared that if I look in and try to understand he will surely reach in and grasp my innermost.
You know something is not quite right when you find yourself battling to stay awake cause of that man you hear moving behind the wall the one you called "Papa" the one you thought cared for your feelings -- no
The future is there
The Monsters. The monsters are coming The monsters are always here. The monster inside is the only one you should ever fear. You can hide from the monsters around you
She has a full tank of gas, but she's running out of time.
Walking down the street, life moves slowly As I run into people and fall onto the rough concrete. Bitter voices and yelling catch my attention, But the powerful wind propels me into dangerous roads.  
I remember the morning I was riding my tricycle
Who am I really without a filter? Because with it, I feel as if I have shelter I don`t want them to see the real me Yet, I feel like I should let it be   1977, Hudson,  Walden
They say you always know which kids have no dad You know the ones always starting something, doing bad, roaming streets, making trouble, proving the stats right. Now Uncle Sam trying to keep them in his sight
Guess what? I'm doing well for once. It seems surreal That my heart and mind agree Things are alright But something itches I thought, a laugh, a word.
I demand change. In these twisted, damaging days. Where women are afraid to leave for work for fear of merciless rape Where people of color  cannot receive a fair wage
   Love is the feeling of sensations. To hold a pain in your heart for someone, To capture that pain- Only making it whole when the lover is present. It is the emptiness in the chest,
In the beginning I was always scared. Never able to say what  I thought or felt. It was nothing less than torture. Forever crippled by the fear of being unnaccepted. Always tiptoeing trough life like perpetually crossing a lake of thin ice.
 
The inspiration escapes me today. Between me fathoming my thoughts, And what I could dream of, And what I could think of, The effort escapes me. And I do not feel the purpose.
I feel weighed down by all my deepest fears  And all my highest hopes  Fear will always whisper in your ear and taunt you. Hope though, is a crueler joke.
I keep my eyes on the tiled floor in dread A public toilet Two stalls are left The one to the far left is out of order Dead The stall door swings open and I stall at the door Do I dare?
I'm scared. 
My favorite thing is when I am held close- To your face. When you hold me and keep me close- To you. I am scared of falling. Shattering and breaking because you could not care enough- To catch me.
So you found out Well, how do you feel? Me? I feel vulnerable Anxious Confused Judged Hurt Angry Destroyed This was a side of me that you weren't ready for
Can't you see what's right in front of you?The broken tragedy you so eagerly ignore,Are you so blind to see what is so clear to me?Or do you just wish not to notice?Is it too heart wrenching, or difficult?
I’m the kind of girl, who will go outside without a coat on And lay in the middle of an ice rink, Until the coldness turns everything numb. And I welcome the cold I welcome the numbness.
Deadbeat number one. You walked out of my life before I even got to learn what your skin smelt like.I'm sure if I dug way back in my locked away, too young to remember, 
Days, weeks and months collide I'm starting to forget who I am inside Not sure what to think or feel Wondering if I'm even real   Finding new ways to hide Fears still reside
In timeIn spaceFeeling out of placeIn fearIn mindAnswers you can't findIn heartIn soulIt's out of controlIn darknessIn light
Dear my Love, the walls have fallen, The stones and mortar have given way. Authorities have not yet told If it were attack, or mere decay. The resting village still lies in peace,
Morning, its your wake up call, Don't fall back asleep, you might not get another chance, This might make you want to get up and just dance, Rewards don't just come, don't just glance,
MOM
Growing up your my main inspiration, I gave you hardship and lots of frustrations, But you’ve always been there when I needed some love, Arms spread open hugging me like a glove,
Silence again and Watch and see.
I am a shadow. I am a spore. I am a seed. I have not grown yet, but among my millions of siblings, I don't think I'll stand out much.
The opposition comes across the field In many shapes and sizes But the difficult part about opposition To realize is That a lot of the opposition I cannot see Is coming to attack from behind me.  
After 7 shots of vodka I believe that you become the person that you are too afraid to be--  That's why I take off my clothes and you open up your heart.  I'm too afraid to give you my body 
Paralyzed by my own mind games Chaos surrounds me  Yet it doesn't  I can't move But I can I don't react Yet I should I just am But am I? Words overwhelm me
With the music of the sirens, We each turn our ear; We think of tomorrow, Though we cower in fear. Yes, the broken and bleeding, You have us standing right here. Will you fire on your own people?
If people only realized this is as loud as I can be I won't bray like a donkey just so you can hear me. Just because I'm not boisterous and annoying Dosen't mean I'm also always boring.
Love can make us do stupid crazy things, Things that never in a million years you thought would do. Things you regret doing.   However, at the time it does not occur to us how our actions ruins us on the inside
For as long as I can remember, my best friend was me. Until I started to turn on myself, feeling trapped rather than free. I felt ugly and worthless inside and out. Being stuck in my head
I’m not sure what it is about the clouds.
Im feeling all the fears I feel dead inside I need a pen and paper and a thing of cyanide
  Think, we are living on this speck of something in space.  Only this speck of something radiates love. We are able to find love in this place.  We are able to discriminate and hate. 
I remember. It started when I was five years old. Young, but never got to be. Not five years old, not six, not seven, eight or nine. TEN years to hold such a secret, until I could no longer keep it.
Red
  To signify the pulse between my veins Escaping outside             Of my paper-thin skin   To identify who you are        As you are choking me In my sleep  
Here I am I am here Mentally, physically With love and with fear   Myabe Im not the best At that or at this But I show up, and I arrive Which some cannot give  
I am like the sea, beautiful and wild on the surface, deep and mysterious underneath. Unknown by many, misunderstood by all.
My life displayed upon a screen- I live behind a filter; I never say what I think. I’ve been trained to keep my mouth shut, but my lips glossed and pink. Without the social media, I am like all the rest.
Do you know what it's like every day Dreading your life in every way? Fearing you'll never be good enough The minutes get longer and your life gets tough.  
The Mystery of the Dark - Not knowing what comes next Or what has already come to pass.
So sickly.  Someone with such a heart  Ready to do...anything. And Everything. To get ahead.  Destroy their friend for the drug called. Ambition.  Fear of losing to others In turn. Losing
My tongue is tied, My heart flutters,
Corrosive stares deteriorate the fragile filter my fears create. This pseudo sense of normality, is a dam for my creative profligacy.   Beneath this exoskeleton of perfection
When it really comes to it, I look away in the hallway.
Midnight orb, swirly silvery white, Hung against the inky black sky As the town clock chimed loudly. The city slept, living in their dreams. But a silent figure approached,
I close my eyes and count to seven but when i wake im far from heaven i find that i am still in hell, no anglic bells and my heavy heart swells and though i feel im 'bout to burst
When my brother cuts his skin He scars my heart When he tries to die He is killing part of me   Three parts of me have died And I have countless scars on my heart
I've made too many mistakes. I'm afraid if I make one more, It'll be my undoing.  
Authenticity The orgin of all truth The face of deceit
I am tired and lost in my empty world Looking for answers to my questions Where do I belong? Where do I go next? What am I missing? Am I in the wrong life? Is it my hair, too short and too straight?
Do you, too, live in fear? Do you see a grim shadow on the horizon, yet say nothing, and let the party continue?   Every one I've asked Says the shadow is too far away,
Give reason to these days of despair. Paint justice on this wall of pain. Mumble the hymn that rhymes with this chaos.
the witness of a public beating
the mirror was an illusion, the silence was the truth. so many illusions fill the air, hang down on our shoulders, shine in our eyes. too much you do not see.   i want to tell you the truth:
  “You’re not in this alone. Let me break this awkward silence…” Blared loud into eardrums   Eardrums of an emotionally unhinged fourteen year old boy
Oh, falling’s just a one-way flight, My boarding pass: the smile you gave. And you would try to catch me, right?   My feet hang from this windy height. To fall in love, one must be brave.
  Never have I seen anything about myself as flawless; The cuts that once covered my body, like paint strokes on a damaged canvas,
You stay up late with your coffee filled veins,As I scribble down your name.And baby, I dream with my eyes open,I can't ever be the same.
There it was
To my descendants: When I arrived in this role I had been given, love was blossoming in many ways. People were just learning to love people for who they are, what they are.
My heart is a fragile thing I try not to let people in fear keeps me behind the curtain   I'm down on my knees doubts make me feel like I have to follow society fear keeps me behind the curtain
It was a challenege  A challenege i had to face  To overcome my fear  Off being disgraced by the human race This challenege right here Is one they'll never forget It will be lodged in there head
Pride is the number one thing that can make us, break us, or even kill us. It’s like a bullet proof curtain that allows us to hide who really are. It hides who I really am internally.
Redheaded girl, who sits and waits, For the days of cold to be over. Whispers of other student's rates, On the always unnoticeable cover.   The pain she feels is always real,
The voices they scream soft as every butterfly Strangely beautiful with a poisonous smile
They say that opposites attract,   Like the times I would sit on her lap,   Rest my head against her chest   And listen to the beat of her heart,  
I'm not scared of anything. I'm not scared of shadows into the night.
this  generation really has me loosing patience. I dont know how there gonna make it. Always counting on phones , what if one day phones turn into drones and take over the world .
This fear I feel is formed from my imagination.   Constantly contemplating where my life will be stationed.
Halloween is here We love this holiday my dear Pumpkins are carved, treats are bought, and the decorations are hung All that must be done Is to put a costume on Witches in their pointy hats
Now
Now, The time to rise, To be free and alive, To embrace fear and thrive, For the very construct of your reality is simply contrived.
My mom likes to  think I'm just like her That I love crowds of people and constant noise That I love calling all attention to myself And that I like conflict My mom thinks I hide my real self from the world
Just like that, I curl inside the empty cavern between rib bones and hip joints,  just like that,
In the beginning everything was easy
Stress, sadness, fear,wory. I have a mask to cover   that up.  Boredom, anger, doubt, loneliness, confusion,    regret. I can hide it. There truly is no know emotion
Always the same
Laying alone once again, picturing a better time. Listening to a familiar note. Reading a repedative word. The same over and over and over. When will it change? 
2000 chances were handed out in hopes that they would never be used  the number on the cards and people waiting for just one call to come in confused   2000 pieces of hope were believed in
Just stand there
You know that feeling you get when you walk alone? The feeling that somebody else is there? You get the sensation of footsteps behind you But you are too afraid to turn and look?
There a a series of Masks They come in many forms: from smiles and laughter from contempt and scorn. I hide behind many but not enough. I use them to keep away from others to save my heart. 
And I'm still thinking why. . . Why did god chose me for this struggle on my journey Who am I, why does my appearance gives the right to judge me.
Let me straddle your mind Let me lay on top of your thoughts Rubbing & caressing each care away Interrupting them with each touch & feel I can open you up, to love, lifting you up Giving you a high
You preach your theories, teach your lies.
Round 1: You ask your parents how they feel about gay people "trash" "freaks" "sinners"
Brain is sweating heart convulsing stomach vomiting hands screaming
Incredulously more malicious is the fear that sits and wishes To give you its affliction Of viscious scenes and memories
Death is not something to fear It is to be learned about To be pondered over To be wondered on its purpose Fear can control your life So why let it? You can fear something a little
Started a small bug within But now its cutting  too thin   I want to kill this thing its eating up my life Killing my heart Stilling my brain   But I'm not ready 
Study, Study, Study Is there no end The Back-To-School season is a ruthless monster And no one is allowed to leave its bitter den   You can try to fight it You can try to run away
Have you
She looked out to the flourescent sky Daydreaming like a small child Wishing she had the wings of a bird so she could fly She wanted to be free, she wanted to be wild  
Cracks shine through the sides only to be left A dark cloud comes through, a dissapointment They expected something different not theft Not suddenly drained of their excitement
Bump in the night, a forgiven fright, but so easily mistaken, for ones so often taken.   Things unseen, Things unheard, Things that most certainly unnerve, Scream my name
when is it approprate to give up and give in when can the breathing stop and the struggles cease to be must this tradegy continue must there be a crash and burn cannot this end here and now
Afraid to ask for counselAfraid of what they'll sayAfraid of being torn againAfraid of being away Steady is not my emotionsSteady is not my heartSteady like the wind which isSteady not from the start
I haven't had lessons since the age of three but me?   I'm a dancer   Those rhythms in my soul are always pounding Pulsating, shaking, crying, hoping, longing For a dance floor  
I hide behind it and look outhow are you? It nods, acqueses and smiles withoutwho am I? I see the inside and feel the paindon't show it! On the surface there's no complaintwhat is it?
I envy those that shine in the light, Those who aren't afraid to fight for who they are. For every time I think it's time, For every time I say that this moment, this one is surely mine,
Wanting, Aching, Craving  The World.   To expand my mind to places farther than my backyard or the church, To learn a language of love by being surrounded by foreign lovers,
pink Pink is happy, pink is love, pink makes me feel up and above, pink is innocent , pink is the butterflies you get in your stomach when something great occurs,
Truly, the most difficult thing I have faced in this dark, grim world of no escape,  Captivated by the residents and their placid, false faces, is
As I have gotten older, school has become less and  less
The road that lies ahead in our minds is often bright and shining   To others, it's dark and gloomy and every sunrise is a dread   Caught in the middle, I'm paralyzed between fear and hope
There are days when I look up at the moon and think of you.
I'm not as bad as you think I'm not a problem child I sit in my room And I use the internet I'm not out partying I'm not out drinking I'm not shooting up Or popping pills
  Survive the storm, thunder, and rain, dig deep inside to locate the pain. Follow its stem down to the roots, unveil the confusion and discover the fruits.  
I am twisted I am new and different yet, blind to the new body that is my mind and soul I am fear I feel fear I can't think anymore I don't trust myself to think
Hide hide hide I would say Hide what you love about yourself and put it away They try and hurt you everyday so hide hide put your true self away And that way They'll never
Thunder roars, lightning flashes Tempest winds buffet the trees Rivers flood and cars crash Overturning houses with ease Tossing a train like a toy Nature in its most primal form
I'm not afraid of death. Not the dark or the demons in hiding. I'm not afraid of heights, or even falling. I don't fear pain,  Nor do I fear loving. I'm not afraid to speak my mind.
What They Don't Understand   She can dream...but she doesn't know if she can live...
I fear them knowing who I am. I fear the day when I am no longer able to keep up the facade. I fear that the real me will never be good enough.  I fear the judgements. I fear the abuse. I fear the critism.
I have these thoughts I don't understand. They come from a place I don't quite know. Often at times I sit alone.
An unreliable narrator She was always at a loss for words Expression never came easy, nor was Compassion, understanding, empathy Love Was not a word in her dictionary
It is during waking hours that you simmer on the back burner. Softly existing Gently rolling Around On my tongue In my mind
I was in a jar  No hands could untwist my lid Trapped. I was in a car No hands could break glass Save me I was in a house No hands could crack through
It's hard to gather rosebuds with a dreadful fear of thorns;It's hard to share one's fondness with a fear of lover's scorn.So as one gathers rosebuds with a thick and rugged glove,
Behind the Curtain of Staged-Perfection  by Janae 
Anxiety   It looks like the gray sky prior to a storm, caked with layer upon layer of ominous clouds. It sounds like the silence after howls of the wolves rip through the air.
I am running, hiding from the relentless grip of REALITY But no matter what I do or where I go, it always seems to catch up with me It drugs me and runs through my veins
The day I met him, he had my heart.Then everytime I saw him it was like it was going to beat out of my chest.Shortly after knowing him I was ready to give him the restAnd no. I don't mean sex.
Some words will never be heard, but it doesn’t mean that they will go unsaid.   It is in the speaking of the word, not the hearing, that the word comes alive.  
The moment I tried to just do something positive  There it goes again that knock at the door can't you hear it 
The lost of trust ,heartbreak ,no one understands me ,I'm scared,no one will listen to me ,what will they think of me  
I wanna take someone's soul out there heart and put it in mines but no matter how hard I try to become someone different the reality is always permitted ...
I keep getting sad at night instead of putting myself to sleep but I always put up a fight even though I know perfectly well what it does to me
Why is it a chore to stay alive, Why do we laugh when we want to cry, Why do we hide behind a mask,
Night falls and it consumes me
Blood drips from my pen 
I feel as though life is racing past me and i am powerless to stop it. I'm trapped in a sea of emotions with no purpose. Who am i you ask? I am the average girl who almost had a future.
We've got the world in our open hands.   With just a tap of finger, we've accessed the Web. This dimensional universe of knowledge that contains the world.  
Imagine you were a boy born with a big head Your parents thought you were smart with a cranium that feels like lead As I grew up in many places Learned in many schools My goal for grades were secondary
The first day of middle school, dread and fear. This is what started my eighth grade year.   I knew no one, not one single friend
Fear.    Has picked up my trail Is looking to find me.  
Here's to the New Year For one filled with hope Where we conquer the fear
You make me weak at my knees As I watch you pass by And get a tingly feeling deep inside   I try to avoid you Though I want to see you But I don’t want you to know how I feel  
The beautiful shine of your golden skin---It nearly blinds my eyes.Surrounded by a crown of golden leaves,
It's Pain which lead's us to Achieve Some 
mmmmmm. Your hands are warm...and also clammy Maybe it's cause you're nervous or maybe you're not.   In the end it doesnt matter because after it's done,it's done.
The crack of a cackling bullet Shattered the life and the sanctum of thought Which held me up, assisted and created me But left me when I needed it the most   The scream of a dying soul
Among the shadows, in the dark of night,
Why do I hide? Why don't I show? 'Cause the last time I did I ended up Alone
I remember the first time I saw you
When I walk down the street, Talking to the people I see, I can't help but wonder, If who they see is really me.   To them I am funny and kind, I always have a smile on my face.
The deep red, velvety curtain shades her from reality A mask to hide all sorrows This thick wall of shame to cover all past sins and tragedies.   
A Rest in The Forest
My moms sent me an email and said read it and do what I do best which is telling the truth.   See I’m only 20 and I love to spit the truth because I make people think about something that they thought they already knew.  
I am the beast The one you look at and instantly know is freak I am the beast The one you say is so weak I am the beast The one who aches in the corner trickling tears like the rain falls
I am me, that's who I am. I don't go by your rules anymore. I am not just your pretty girl, I am so much more. I am a boy, a girl, neither, both, I am one, I am anything and everything.
Stopped in front of the old dirt road.  I usually do what I'm told. And that night the warmth felt so damn cold. I was feeling young but too old, anticipating the trouble I'd watch unfold.
Icy hands of Hope, Frigid blissful voice of Love,
I dream of a beautiful woman I gave birth to years ago.
I keep it deep inside so my tears won't find the many missing pieces of my broken heart
This is as quiet as it gets So please don’t break this silence Just hush down and fall asleep I promise not to make a sound so you don’t wake This moment is the calming before the storm
Fear Cold ignorant Paralyzing gripping heartstopping I must have understanding Now
Time nev
For all the love I have to give No one can learn to live with it I'm restless, weary and fading Straining to remain the same Another date, another day No love shines in this shade
Roses are redish, Violets are blueish, If it wasnt for Christmas, We would all be Jewish
Pay no attention to the girl behind the curtainCuz boy I am certainYou'll have a little more interest in the one who's out flirtin'That twitch of her hips, you want her so bad it's hurtin'
Be brave, he said But a coward am I
In the 3in by 2in picture
I am not the only one in the White Room. Sheer fabric whispers from the windows Goblet in hand, I drink to the Grecian lady White dress, raven ringlets frame the face Of porcelain A laugh escapes
It’s vital to know, the stakes I conceive Are heaven or hell, nothing or rebirth But how can I know when I must believe?  
Sweeping the floor, glide on feet that mock us He comes prowling the streets when dusk has slain itself into midnights hour. He stands a shadow of slate against ebony
I find myself shedding tears for past shitWounds t
When Anxiety stops by She brings all her friends, And my living room, Bedroom, And kitchen alike Get crowded with sweaty bodies Tripping me with their murmurs and laughter.
I know Too many people whose no's were ignored Too many kids forced to grow up too fast
Make me happy Make me smile for hours Give me the fondest memories that I smile when you’re not around Make me think   Make me ponder things I never thought
I speak on fear, depression, and realization.  Success to me only comes when all three of these things plays together as one. The battle is all within yourself and will always be.
See I've given up on love but somehow I still had faith in you, I believed In every word you said and foolishly thought they were true,
See I've given up on love but somehow I still had faith in you, I believed In every word you said and foolishly thought they were true,
I shun this part right here Waking in the middle of night battered heart All we do is live in this perpetual fear Again and again I try to avoid this part right here
I’m afraid I don’t have a firm enough grasp on time and how I’m supposed to inte
The wall is there Looming tall and divine. Built from the bricks of adversity, Which bake in oven of pressure and worry. The wall is part of life.
You wrote the thesaurus in which I am a synonym for worthless, and an antonym for perfect.You wrote the dictionary with my name defining the word ugly, and used me in a sentence to exemplify the adjective disgusting. 
Skyscrapers looming at a godly height Concrete approaching at the speed of light A blind sense of panic, the wind rushing by This I fear deep down inside.
Lost in another compilation of complications. A group of her friends worsened the situation. I can't take this nonsense anymore I'm walking out the door. I'm not leaving you but I'm leaving this relationship.
Bang...Bang is the sound we used to make as kids playing? Cops and robbers to the sound we make now as adults with real guns.
Here I lay on my bed A pillow is under my head My room is dark and silent A paper moves, so pops open my eyelids   Its early morning Late night Sleep is nowhere in sight  
    My story goes unspoken The pain went unknown,
You told me you would try to fix me
“The youth of America is putting itself into a coma state.” We are all looking for numbness; finding our relief in painkillers. We are constantly looking for things to help us become paralyzed. We wish to become machines.
As I sit in this room I feel my problems rushing towards me; hoping to consume me. I know I won’t be able to out run them, so I let them come.
It’s so easy to hide our abuses Blame it all on life, we did not choose this. So we make up excuses and choose not to see other's bruises Life turns us all red, yellow, brown, white, and blue 
The C word is loud It is always in my face So I venture off and find my happy place.   It attacked at my back Fear crippling, questions surging My perspective shifts and memories begin merging.
SLAP! I didn't mean to upset you I'm sorry I don't know why I always have to ask so many questions. SHOVE! Down the stairs I'm falling
Bridge leading nowhere, or someother land, is the path that is always has our toes curl'd   We stand on our cliff Looking over the world We dismiss exploring our life is too grand.
I turn my head and I all I see is black,  He hovers over me waiting to attack. I close my eyes hoping that this feeling goes away, I cannot bear the thought of getting hurt  And when I open my eyes I am alone.
Life is not easy for me Not sure when it will be. I am out of work and broke Feeling this way is no joke I have applied to many jobs out there I spend my days living in fear Not having money 
I fear the man who hits my mother when he is drunk. I am frightened by the man who touches me in my sleep, the man who knocks over objects in the house when my mom tries to leave. And she stays.
Befriended street lamps' static humTimed steps slashed through electric buzzFled from the dawn's grey stainchased night with anxious breath                                              erupting
  I am searching for an inspiration Something to allow me to get into action
The Kansas sun slowly burns out, melting into the plains like a cigarette butt fades int
Turbulent veins Ancient toxins flowing
 I was given a bagWith 5 arrows insideA bow in my handAnd a whisper, "Now hide"My heels leave the Earth
Racing into the night, heart pounding with vengent fright. Nostrils flaring,  eyes round with quivering fear. How does anyone get out of here?   Wooden bars staked in the ground,
I have felt the burden she carries
It is easy To look into the past And see the path You have taken   It is easy To see the distance travelled And the time spent Like reading a novel   It is easy
I have an associates degree at eighteen but I haven't made it , to everybody else my goals are just... dreams just because i have a limp, i have no potencial it... seems  on top of that im Mexican with a love for hip hop,
The Closet   There is the universe. Inside that universe is the solar system,
You can find me where the dust sparkles in the window from the sun's rays You can find me- there   I'll be hiding beside the curtain blending into the wall
These words I throw out To never get back, To never believe in again.   Stripped down to my core, I'm all that and more: A sunrise, a sunset within.   You're calling my name,
He sees behind my eyes, past my thighs he has x-ray vision.He has next day vision.
I've become numb from the amount of times I've heard the lies
Fear My fears are obvious and I'm just like everyone else   I’m scared to trust cause I’m scared of betrayal   I’m scared to love cause im scared of hurt  
Don’t breathe, talk or blink, just stare. Though my mind tries to grasp the words to make sense of this, all that comes to me is a sound, and I feel as if I may pass out.  
Why am I nor happy? I have such a big porch for me alone. I have the life that no one else owns. I have gold that no other holds. Why am I not happy? I have all I want, But something stands.
fear lurks in the back of my mindeve
Dear Person Who Deserves to Die a Fiery Death While Simultaneously Being Eating By a Shark,
My ghost      follows me everywhere My ghost      hides in the shadows My ghost      huants my past My ghost      endangers my future My ghost      seeks a chance to scare me
Broken down and abundant hope contaminates the air choking the fulfillment of the undeserved knocked out unconscious on the side of a curve racing through the rain lies an unsteady heartbeat  
Here's another older one to round out the 5 for tonight :3 I'll post more tomorrow, maybe I'll even write a fresh one for you~*   Dreams boil in my chest Hot and fierce they burn my flesh
I’m colorblind, I tell myself
Him
I was young and naive I'd say I should have thought But I did I thought what he made me think And I'd blame myself But I really didn't know He did, though He knew what he said
panic arches in my gut, deep and visceral pain  and i can't breathe, can't see, can't hear  anything but the relentless beat of a butterfly's wing against my rib cage
I want to let you in Even though I don't I want to open up Even though I'm closed I want to pour it out Even though I'm dry I want to show you it all Even though I'll cry
I don't believe this is it The do all end all Of all things I coud do Is finding love so wrong? Because I don't think so Is giving love so wrong? Because I don't want to be judged
You might want to get out a pen and paper and take some notes Listen up, no texting please, awkward eyes contact is necessary We’ll start with some basic rules, you'll want to write them down
The kids inside the walls become adults While The kids outside the walls become adults And The kids inside the walls wash their guilt away with vodka and rum So they don't have to feel 
Creativity causes people to think for themselves Which instills fear in his eyes,
An Infinite Sky Dive I want it.I miss it.Even though all its caused me is pain and heartache.I can’t talk about the past without building walls and iron gates locked down without key in sight.
When I meet people, People I end up falling for, I assume they'll be perfect for me on every level. I assume we'll dream the same dreams, And they'll understand all the silly things I'm scared of,
-Dreamers are dreamers, we all dream of something  -Some dreamers are "fake-believers", and those become "unachievers" -To find what drives you, and imbrace it, is actually living the "dream"
Just when I start to get used to things the way they are, they become unraveled.  Life around me is unraveling, my mind is unraveling.  I cannot seem to find a foot hold in this fragile ground.
I wont stop trying to walk on water, Even if i cannot swim. Not because of fear i won't Lose all my dreams and hopes
Loneliness is like an abyss A world filled with endless darkness A place where light is consumed   The heart trembles because darkness laughs It shivers because the shadows devours the soul
I stand in the midst of this madness The deafening sound rings out like a siren The silence it crushes my lungs I can’t breathe But words still escape from my mouth. I stand on my own two feet
I dream constantly and consistently During long silences and pauses And right before I fall asleep The beginning is sweet and pulls me in My eyelids get heavier And I am dragged deeper
I've seen you and yet I haven't
Fear is great heights and great depths Darkness and Brightness Fear is something new and something old It is a sin and yet so natural A lust for safety  A lust for comfort Rip off the mask to face it
Walking down the street, You hear the sounds of a six shooter go off down the road. You duck just as scared as anyone else, All you wanted was some gummy worms, But they’re not worth your life.
How can you not see me? You walk by me every day, Call my name; You even hold conversations. But you don’t see me.   You don’t see the pain that is caused. The burden on my shoulders,
A broken heart will remember its wounds. A mind scarred will remain scarred. A body touched cannot be untouched. But another bottle won't fix it all. And the high only lasts for a moment.
One question Floating freely Through thoughts scrambled, tousled, archived   Like the thud against the wall Nearly silent. But always there. Whispering.  
The hollow persists in the space you've wrapped aroundBut the inner circle containsEmptiness, loneliness, painLike the drip, drip, dripThe flow from my brainIt never turns off, never goes, never slows
So many thoughts running through her mind... So many questions, assumptions of why all of this happened   Her heart can only take so much pain, yet she doesn’t understand why she can kill it already.
Oh, Christ, bring to mind,What about me, they might find,Honest, Kind, Sincere,Or even that I live in fear. - Z.H. (11th grade) 
#what?   Why does this pressure just make me freeze. Why do I constantky watch myself in the mirrior instead of stick my head out of it's cage. All I want is to live my life outside these bars.
I see them talking to each other, smiling with pure joy I know I can join in and be the same, I know I could contribute to the conversation with my perspective, I know that I cannot push myself to do it,
FEAR IS BITTER, IT IS RAW. Fear causes your taste buds to be afraid of ever tasting another word ever again. Fear sounds like white noise and your mother screaming at you for breaking her favorite flower vase.
Fear and fear the grades are comingthe destiny awaits and depends on it,your grades will decide if you are worth loving,Work hard and study so you can earn profit.
I am living but I'm not alive Everynight I let myslef cry I go to sleep hoping to never wake up I am living but I'm not alive  I've gone through things and I wish I died I wake up but I'm still dead
Let me get it out there, we are all fear something. Some of us fear rejection by our companions, others fear being proven wrong.
I never knew
You love me,I know it,Are you scared, angel?You love me,
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting
People don't listen, they push you down and say you have no voice. You hide in the shadows, wanting to speak but never knowing how. You have an opinion, but they say  it's not allowed,
The smoke creeps perfect ‘neath and ‘round each hearse, as liquid darkness consumes the light over all the Earth. Bodies lay everywhere dead lifeless to noise and sound, to
"Why must love feel like a heart attack"?Some may sayCausing our hearts to sputter one final beatThump, thump, shhDifferent types of love lause different types
Nightly terrors cease At least while I lie dormant Dreaming of stories
Sparks ignite The arid fields And childhood memories  A glow Hangs like hell above Bathed in warm light Flames climb The walls of the house In which we once slept Hopes
We are not bound by blood yet nothing can separate us I do not know you since birth yet our energies tell a different story
Patches of light in a vast darkness I call them thoughts. Flicker in, flicker out. Jump from one to the next Afraid of the emptiness between Where am I going?
Assuming our full understanding is complete with moronic fallacies With Wars fought and won on their hands, a continued sense of superiority, With pen and parchment, Iwalk in No Mans Land,
I am holding a bladeUp to my wrist In the knife all I see is lies upon liesBut then I see youAnd your little blue eyesYou say put the kinfe down AuntieOr I will crySo I put down the kinfe
With Aspergers, it's a bit tough. There's problems that make you think you've had  enough. From the loud noise to lighting so bright, When you can't handle it all, you are forced to fight.
I close my eyes Such wonders dance behind them
Death is not a beautiful thing.           It's terrifying.           Just the though of it makes my heart quicken.            What lies beyond, deep into the abyss.
There are monsters inside Who see through my eyes They live off my hair My guts, their lair My legs, their tools Kidneys as stools Crawling in wait In puss-abscess hate
And when I got through with my shift, I laid on the floor wondering why i felt like this.. The hogt of keeping this secret might be fun,                                                            might be fun,
The worst thing you want to be is a failure in life To put down the people in your life and here them whisper "lowlife" To constantly show no improvement over and over To be confronted and insulted 
Bad luck drowns my sorrow in a
There is no uniqueness like that of fear.  Irrational, Yet this only makes it all the more terrifying.    Peering into shadows, Ignorant to evils that lie lurking, ready
The day rose so gently that it was almost unnoticeable.
I’m wrapped up tight within my sheets Behind my curtains blows a gust Up and down the lonely streets   Calm my heart, this I must As the shadows find me still In gentle dreams can I trust?  
It’s been two years and some odd months When he passes and asks what I’m doing “Nothing” Really, I’m talking to him. I smile when he talks to me His eyes are deceived again
I stand alone. Darkness is in every corner of the room, and the only light to reach me comes from a single window. What would it be like if I was out there? I wake every day and dress for town,
Slept in again? My night habits are getting the best of me And you're not the man I imagined you'd be when I was young. I can't just blink the fatigue away; I sit there for a minute.
Is fear my living? I want to feel unattached to fear Unattached to hollow
Fear What is fear? Is it seeing me walk by your car? Because you lock the doors,
Out the window, carried on clouds On a day so listless I can't hear a sound Silence so loud no thoughts are clear
So we started this for it to end?
In the beginning, there is frustration. Faith is weak, as you find no peace to keep diligent. In the beginning, there is exhaustion. Life is tearing at your priorities,
From dawn 'till dusk I am enclosed, In my own world yet so exposed. Passing by, a mere obsever, Using distance as my life's preserver. Close enough to touch, too far away to see, 
Run away from your problems but where can you go? Run away from your nightmares but you keep drifting off into a distant sleep you want to wake up be told your whole life is a dream
We hear about problems, All over our world, How there are  bombings, shootings, And deaths allured.    What people forget, Is how this all began, With hatred that came,
Some say that bitterness is what broke you, and ripped your seams apart. But whatever it was that consumed you, longing is what lies inside your heart. A longing to be better, is the single thread that binds you.
What was it like to be 17? It was never feeling good enough. It was laughing for hours until my sides hurt It was being terrified about my future
continuing to search for solutions for the involuntary kill all similar triangles dead-eyed squinting in traffic public television blasting from the T.V.
  Changing../ It's all changing.../ It seems as if everything, has to change./ Nothing can ever stay the, same./ But if I could change, anything.../ I couldn't choose./ I'd h
If I could hold a heavy hammer,  I would build a tree - something. 
I used to think I could not write for a living Because my mind was blank as The pages of a journal just picked up from the store
So the verdict says not guilty. The world stops. How could someone get away with murder? A boy has been shot! He has been killed! This is the world we live in. Riots begin. Peaceful protest.
I know it's hard to hear the constant advances of suitors, to hear their cat calls day in and out. I know it is At least I'm sure it is. But that doesn't stop me from wondering what it is like to be noticed
Jitters and shakes. Sitting unmovin.g To run for it and jump. To feel the sweet airs go rushing passed And the release of no control. Submergence, And quick kicks to reach the water's surface.
When your heart threatens to fall out your ass. When your brain won't cease spitting out rapid-fire bullets labeled What if If Only What about Maybe Maybe Not
my brain awoke, but my eyes stayed shut. it felt as if 100 lb dumbells hung from my eyelashes, streatching them across my face.
There is something stirring  It threatens fear It threatens death My only escape is to drown Drown it out Push it down Do not breath Do not think Do not cry
Today is today, I mean that's what everyone says. But today is the day that I hide , in the shadows, faces of you are revealed in my sight. I'm afraid to ever walk in those steel doors, because with me you have no insight.
To look in the mirror and see something different, I wonder if that’s the apple I’d pick.
I place my hand on the screen I wish that you were here I sit and I wonder I pray and I fear   With every day that flies by My woes only grow
Save her,
When life gets difficult, And your cup over flows, Things go haywire, Objects explode, Theres no air, No air, No air you cant breathe, Your brain cant conceive, Wrong, Wrong,
The world is a cold dead place baby, the man says and you can see he means every word You've got to do it for me now, he says and you can see he means that too   he sets you down
Words I don't feel like saying I'm afraid of writing
I hear laughter. I tense up. "Nobody likes you." "You're ugly. I've heard these words before.  Stupid words Shallow But they hurt.   I shake my head. "No."
Use your intuition, your divine knowledge, and allow love to propagate through every single substituent atom in your body.
She doesn't care where you are coming from or going to She doesn't  care how old you are or how wise you've become
It's completely natural to me, Like I've done it all my life, It helps to take away the pain, The way they treat me is wrong, It helps to take it all away, It helps relieve the stress,
Do you ever wish you were born a guy? 
Am I alone Surrounded by shadows Locked on all sides By the ghostly gallows I’m suffocating Can’t breathe in this hell Too hot for me I can’t stand the smell Survival of the fittest
Simmer in the sun, Dive in the lake. Roll in the fescue, Feel the wind break.   Frolic in the flowers, Dance in the rain. Twirl under trees,
For once in this life, I am plagued by the thing which has ruled mankind Since the beginning. I stop and look forward in this point in time, the distance of knowledge far beyond the reaches of the system--
Fear is what keeps you up in the night, the noises the knocks the sounds.
We all wear a mask Only taking it off at dusk When the society can see you in darkness You pretend you know what is happiness Ignorant of pain,agony and blasphemy Hiding the reality
You are my past. So why do I fear you? For taking my innocence. For taking my confidence.  For making me afraid of every man that comes near.   You are their past. So why do they fear you?
A night to remember, a spin and a glideas we make our way through the aisle.I was too young when you left my side.
Never Forget   You Stained by bloody waters A past haunts your present being I see the pain in your eyes The beauty of humanity   Rests under your soul
Wind against these walls And the silence goes unbroken Save for my own breath How are we such strangers now So different I’ve known you all my life You meant the most to me
He glares from the corner,
Hollow Ghost of Red Heart             Ominous with frantic rage             Yet vindictive under the Vail             Luminous as starlight nights
Breathing Just Fine             Held under water             Gazing upon him             We fight for a way out             The sea blue runs black            
An open crevice, like A monster's gaping maw Waiting, beckoning To swallow me whole.
Speak softly, don't rush ahead Things are real,
If I could change one thing, it’d be this tall, intimidating fence. I’d tear it down and frolic away deliriously into the world that’s been waiting for me.
As a child, I've always been hollow on the inside
I would change the view that it's not you to look up at one another as we walk from point a to point q   I would change how we feel when we're in a class
  I am quiet because I chose to be No I do not have an attitude   No, I am not having a bad day Well maybe I am, but what’s it to you? So you can say, “She seems aggravated?”
Warning: some explicit language  
These things are running through my mind God's path for me is hard to find. It's true, there are things that I do wrong Maybe sing the dirty parts of a song...
The fear of newness Could also be called the fear of change Why change what you are used to? Why make the switch from old to new? Or is neophobia the fear of not understanding? the fear the unknown?
Homeless individuals sleep with dreams of what they used to be Now they have moved on leaving the new generation drowning sea to sea No education, no temptation, to get a dream fulfilled
The time has come, my choice is made This life is cruel and humanity has no hope
When I see you smile it brightens my day, all those dark clouds around me are no longer grey, it means that I love you, hey what can I say I need to admit it and quit being afraid.
A sadness so deep  A darkness so sad nothing, no one, anyone  you can never you will never Touch your knees with your nose Hide, from it all World fading
Look. Breath catching Ducking behind corners Hiding from something Too much to admit There. Its not your fault, not a bit But I'm so scared I don't sound like myself
The only way i can hide Is by writing what i feel This is something that scares me deep inside Its that moment when i feel its the best to hide I want to tell the truth
I try to find myself, but I've been lost for forever. It's like I'm going in a circle so you'd think I'd know better. I'm somewhat lost in a trance,  I can't find myself. Took 34 pills disregarding my own health.
The strength of those who know of how you cannot harm anyone for long. How can such a short trial, be of much harm? When they will know how you can never last for long. Life is
Eyes swelled up with tears, As i said goodbye to YESTERDAY. The promise of romance drowning in the ocean of my heart.
For so long I have been wondering about you. Everybody passed me by, why didn’t you? Random dreams of you and me, I picture in my head. Now that I look back; rain comes to my face.
I lost my father at the age of fourteen, 
Fear hinders our progress towards better times where we need not be alone, it suffocates lights and welcomes darkness into our mind's own home. Fear grips the souls of men  in a way no human can,
Love is rich sometimes its a bitch or a witch that cast a spell that makes you twitch  untill you cant take another inch , away from the girl that first said hey that would later on say
   I stand in front of this mirrorI rub my eyes to try and see clearerI stare at this reflection
A hello here, A handshake there, A hug here, A greeting all around   I float amongst my piers, Socializing from clique to clique to satisfy But I am never truly satisfied  
Have you ever wanted to Run? Run so far  Have you ever felt so Done? just have to gas the car Have you got some best friends? A couple i guess Are you done with Stress? I know i am
Today was the first time I sold my soul and will be the last one. My threshold keeps tumbling in my ears trying to trap the clear air… I don’t know if I am making sense 
Long ago, I was no lost soul 
Make your words count. That’s what they tell us day in and day out. Somehow, I think I’ve taken this a little too far. I overthink what I want to say to the point where The time for saying it has passed.
Love:
Call me insane, but I'm trapped. In the confines of my house this time, not my mind. Maybe both. "Because you're a girl", replays like a broken cassette tape. Just bear it. Just breathe. Wait.
Ambiguity is stronger than us. Confusion that boggles our minds, Only to be answered in one response, fear. Fear is confusion, Pushed to the darkest parts of mind.
My eyes, with their amber hue, Will flash back when my time is due.   They don't care for the object of the mind's worries; Instead, for the loving look from my father,
To touch another, oh, how I long to feel his skin against mine, if only to finally know
A crickety seasaw with an invisible old man on the other end.  You go up and down, sometimes close to falling, but you hold on, nonetheless.
The taste of blood on her lips, She opens them. It drips, On the floor, She lays, A dark pool in the midst of a glittering forest, She wipes away the red metal. Eyes open. Searching.
You see that person, you had a past, you wish it didnt end that way.  You wish that it couldve last but you realize you wouldve messed it up anyway.   But if there was another strike
When I first found out, There was a monster under my bed, There wasn't a doubt, I was scared half to death. I tried counting sheep, And counting to ten. I was still losing sleep,
Acceptance is what I choose to need. To get away from my misery. I trust those who hurt and love those who use me.
Acceptance is what I choose to need. To get away from my misery. I trust those who hurt and love those who use me.
We are scared of being judged. We are scared of being wrong. We are scared of sounding dumb. We are scared of change. We are scared of the future. We are scared of relationships.
Born I was To a couple who would teach to love and cherish every moment of every day Raised I was To never say anything mean, to never act with unkindness in my heart But schooled I was
Sometimes fear lurks upon me like a thief in the night. Nipping at the coat tails of my soul. Ruthless. Unrelenting. Fear. It laughs at my torment.
I frequently think of why i belong here, yes on Earth. What is the purpose of our lives?
It takes a while for something to grow, but once it does it begins to blossom, nothing will get in the way of stopping it.
I'm guilty of the long way round. Too scared to forge a path myself.  I want to speak but make no sound. I'm guilty of the long way round. I walk the worn well trodden ground. My aspirations on the shelf.
He crushed the butt of his cigarette into the rusted tray, A valley of forgotten grey. After flexing his filthy fingers, his gaze sharply drove into me. I lost my breath.
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 want you to see See beyond the masquerade that the wanderers in the hallway notice See beyond the eighty different shades of color that my hair fluctuates between
My eyes They burn My mind It hurts   Hypocrisy Beating at my heart Lies Making my heart not want to beat   Stop it Please, stop it
Overlooking the ripples from a pier far above,  I hear a distant roar of the waves that I love. The sound hits my ears like a baseball hits the glove.  
  Staring into the shiny blue The shiny blue enraptures me Let it save me Distract me From the self-mutilation I impose upon myself   From the nightmares dancing above my head
I'm afraid to confess I'm still heartbroken.
I was once a little girl,
I'd love to scream
He asked me where my home was
Beth & Natalie No words strong enough in tragedy, Loving you with every breath. Forevermore, watching over us
brown eyes as bright as a star
I have inspiration; I just can’t put it together. I have dreams; I just don’t know where to begin. I have hope; I just don’t show it.
Unuttered trembles are the blade my hands were born to reach and take
Do. Mi. Fa. So. La. Ti. Do.Do you ever think about me, as you continue your days?Repeating the melodic phrase.Might as well watch you from a far and praise you for your hardwork, and end up being amazed.
Love? Alien Foriegn Mysterious Unknown Uncharted Ruleing our mind's  A drug An illusion It's everywhere On the radio In the novels In our soup
I look up to cry the tears of the sky, The gray pasture covering me in its familiar cold I am crushed under the weight. People would say to me, Stand up, you’re fine. And I would try, Oh how I would try.
So because my skin tree tones, my thighs are thick and my hair doesn’t reach the floor I’m not acceptable, this is my generation. Were your shoes has to be worth more than your rent and your clothes has to match your shoes or you define as poor.
Needle in a haystackI am the needle
say you love me once or twcie
As it arrives everything diesThe leaves change colorNature's beauty diesBut one true beauty remains in galore
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,
I sat there in a calm, collected manner, resisting to let anyone see my fear. As it took one step closer, with its, as many as eight legs, I felt a shiver run through my spine, my heart-beat sped faster,
Regardless of your innermost thought,
I collected in a box all the things I left behind,
I’m extremely unfamiliar with the ability to want.
I feel you in my skin
When I was six years old I sat in a darkened closet hugging my knees to my chest. 
How does death choose? Who we lose? How does it pick them? Each victim. I wish it hadn't picked you.   I had no choice as your voice just faded away, and day after day
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
I dove right in. I stopped drowning. Drowning?
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! 
Daddy drives around the block, his silver flask in hand. He takes a swig of liquor to help him with the pain. While Mum sits on the patio, puffing on a cig.
I live to see the sunshine, brighter than the green on pine I live to see the rain, gloomy and forever a pain I live to eat, stuffing my mouth whereever I find a seat I live to drink, only to end up in the kitchen sink
I never thought it would hurt that much,
And it began, again. The battle between my mind and heart.   "He deserves better than you!" "He will never love you!" "You are way too fat!" "You aren't his type!" "He will never love you!"
I really wish you can see what I see
A boy So full of arrogance Wanting only to destroy, Killing as if it were a dance   Another boy, Oh so different With a mind of tricks and ploy His destiny is not what it was meant
Beyond the pools of lotus land,
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
  If I lose myself, if I remove myself
As I lay here only thinking of you, I wonder
You fill me up Then drink I am your partner  during dark nights And your enemy Once you've had your fun And had your fill You leave me on the table And go to enjoy life's thrill
I could never understand How someone could see the fear in your eyes, Hear the tremble in your voice, Understand the falsity of your choked out laugh
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
A pained existence Fear creates wounds Fear is agony Fear has become pain Pain that is as intense as a woman screaming into the night Because fear is the room she has been trapped in.
Fear of rejection   Been such a long time Since I’ve been home I feel like so long I was a mime
     A Little of Everything                 We have accounted for love, Hate stands by her
  The night she will always remember   Her eyes wide, the lights dim around her Silence
A dark shadow on the wall     ready to pounce, ready to brawl Following, stalking, hunting, taking     just when you're unaware, shaking Tense, strong at any moment     a trap in waiting, no escaping
I want you to say no, I want you to reject me.I want you to say yes, I want you to want me. Anything but this, stuck blinded in the midst,no sense of direction,struggling to contain my affection.
If tomorrow I didn’t wake up and I died,how many of you would cry?How many of you would sigh,and just move on with your lives?No pain trapped inside,just another body without life.No priest to confide,
I look up to find a moment of truth so real and divine
It all started with the right hook A shock thru the spine Redirecting the foot Trembling in the knee and signaling for the left hook 1,2,3,4 Remembering the days her eyes was a beacon of hope
I never really feared anything. But As I sit here in my room filled with fear, I feel all the screams and anger from downstairs They shoot up my spine and over-take my body
God, please quiet these conflicting voices inside my head Is one of them yours? It's getting harder to tell. I'm trying to filter them out.   My days and nights are blending together
Once upon a gloomy night, everything was dark and the moon was bright.
I sit alone,trying to talk to you,but you dont want to talk,you never do,you only have one thing on your mind,its always that one thing.Dont you care about me?What about me?
You make me ill, With your kind words And not so secret stares.   I feel your gaze on my body. It touches my face, my arms, and my chest. We both know you aren’t hunting for my heart.  
He is gone forever, the boy named Alex. The seraphs come down beside me singing really taunting, " He who you call brother is with us."
I look at the towering shelves that enchant  me with their dust, And their books sitting there like a superlative throne. I find the quiet a blessing, Because I know they won't forever be silent.  
This damaged girl coming from a broken home, no hope left leaving it all torn, Not a single soul for help in times of discord, What happened to all the love and care from her supposed friends?
She always comes & goes. It is better to leave, before she is left. She always comes & goes. She leaves before she is left.   The friends she makes, Are kept for years –
        We kissed, I felt her lips connect as if we were one, and yet I wanted more. I could not resist her, her looks of pleasant torture, and warmest of the body. Long ago, her beauty vanished, and left there was nothing but hate.
In the path of a deep dark forest, Fear lost herself, The twists and turns, Were as unfamiliar, As the hills of the terrain, On the tip of her tongue, His name hung,
I live in a time Where people have many walls. I also live in a time Where people desire to overcome these walls In any way possible. They have walls of anger and spite Inside their body and mind.
It's a raging battle inside of me  
I had two crayons. Black and white they were labeled.
the waves in the ocean flow through the open holes in my heart   hoping someday this time i can finally see the end of this shining light
If the sun burned hot enough would I still miss your eyes? If the moon was always full would I stop wishing for clear skies? If the grass was green enough would I be satisfied without you?
  I breathe better through a blanket Let it circulate the air I take in Let it suffocate me if in the end I’m pure   I rub its softness against my cheek
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
I try and I try and try, still nothing. I put my heart into everything, still nothing, I spent my whole live searching for the good in my life, still nothing, I try to be nice and generous to everyone I meet, still nothing.
I try and I try and try, still nothing. I put my heart into everything, still nothing, I spent my whole live searching for the good in my life, still nothing, I try to be nice and generous to everyone I meet, still nothing.
There sat a boy in class with me, with red Beats that hung around his neck, he'd never take notes in class,
To him, what have I done was it worth it in the end are the joys of love really real? or is true love just pretend to love him as my own is sin to leave him would kill me i shelter what i feel within
​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
Don't include me into your fake fairy tale The one with flowers, and a neck full of pearls,
Love is like a drug once you've taste it Searching for that same feeling But I forgot to pace it
A dream divineIs only a nightmareIf a thought is to blind beyondMeasures I often question such a beautifulCurse of a dreamIs it only a reality that we often wonder?
In the midst of dayThere I sit in my roomAnd stare awayMy water is tainted and condensendingAnd my mind slowly blows smoke ringsI watch the stoney trees
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
When. It was on a cold day like this
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
Launch me into the atmosphere, So I can float among the stars.Sail me across the ocean,

You always thought, your kids will never know the feeling of addiction, but I went to re
Don't give up. When roads are long, and paved with fears. When seconds turn to hours, and hours to years. When your dreams seem far and out of sight. And you paint on a smile,
Stay strong
There are only some who matter In this endless generation we have here Ideas trashed, intelligence scattered I look ahead, little hope, mostly fear   Roger Daltrey, you're who I agree with
I can’t believe it’s already been a year. Making it this far has always been my biggest fear. I didn’t think I could do it, But I improved bit by bit.
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.
Me peeling fingers, ripped from innocence, diving into adolescence. What is it that makes them this way? The fall from ideals, the way my skin peels, and cracks and drys like never before.
It seems like only yesturday that I was just a little lad and now that I am grown my family is very glad   I can not help but feel that after all these years I grew up so big and tall
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

Author's note: While Power Poetry covers a multitude of causes, I've noticed that there are two in particular that are largely avoided--elder care and death.

Our minds are filled with bottles. In the bottle are ideas, beliefs, answers we have yet to unfasten. In it is the dictator of our inner debacles, It is also the fufillment of passion  
Like an hourglass my mind started to empty as my heart started to fill
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
Do you ever wonder If this is the right thing to do? Do you ever get paralyzed With fear Because you don’t want to wake Forty years old Look back and just say “What the hell?”
  I sit in psychology, A class I should be interested in, but instead worry About the little problems that I have that do not reflect any other person Except myself. This sounds normal.
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
Ideas born out of 2amGrown to wrap around my eyesPull them downThey will not shutConstant spike of ideasIn my brain, it hurtsThe throb of thought against boneI am not destined for sleep
The way we see ourselves is a very powerful thing. It not only builds or breaks the fortress around us it allows others to step into our realms and puncture our castles. It displays vulnerability and hides destruction.
Sick of distraction and all of its tricks concentration loses the fight again To hone in is to believe in fairy tales the nascar of thoughts  A marathon of thinking
I had yearned for so long I had waited for too long I died inside for too long no love no compaasion no warm embrace not even a tender touch quiet nights desperate mornings

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
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

Therea are days When I look around, I see other girls Walking around And I just break down,  Like I can't do this any more, And I start to wonder if it'll ever get better.
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
I need times like this--to myselfTo cook up formulas with words that explode, sending minds into the unknown.Hidden messages through similes and metaphors that'll make the greatest fold

Dancing Shadows By Laquanna Allen   In today’s society There is only one thing you can be The bully or the bullied   Round and round
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.
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.
Well here I am again left broken and confused. They hurt me  and I feel used.   I used to be strong till they broke me apart. I used to have life but now they broke my heart.  
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 
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 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.
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.
Being black shouldnt discriminate, unike any other. Being brown shouldnt mean i have to drown in this society. Being brown should enable me to get a crown,just like any other. Being black shouldnt be a set back.
 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?
Hey Mr. Principal, Hey Mr. Smith, I hope you sit comfortably – On your plush office plinth, With all your private accolades – That no one could care about, To the varsity trophies –
you will never know unless you are in that persons shoes
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
To think you would care To think you would understand  but I liked believing you did The sweet oblivion was better than facing the cold hard truth  Turns out you never knew me
Eventually   Eventually you’ll run out of tears, Eventually you’ll run out of fears. Eventually you’ll run out of sadness,
How do I stop from watching the spiders crawl around my bedroom corners? Are people not spiders?  Crawling from corner to corner making a mess in order to thrive of flies around my room.
 It can come on slow and it can come on fast   Sometimes you’d never know it’s even happening Your palms start to sweat and your heart is about to burst
Love a 4 letter word, though it holds so much gravity yet we throw it around like something thats only worth a penny Hate
A clear-cut diamond ring, Fall, winter, summer, spring. Seasons change,  The birds still sing. Those lovely hazel eyes, Lies, disguise, Another surprise. Who would have thought,
My pulse began to race Like a horse out of the gate Then my muscles began to clench Like a wrench on a nail
The ship sat anchored to the shore The captain, skipper, and crew working at her core Sails being raised and decks being scrubbed
I never really talk to people I always keep my mouth shut And when I go to share a good idea  it bites me in the butt.

Inside a deep, dark hole my dreams were swallowed,Because depression clouded my brain and suicidal thoughts followed.Ugly, bi, thin, tall, stupid, skinny, black...The insults destroyed the confidence I now lack.

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
I hate the way you look at me
I am scared of this snake that sucks the life out of me.   I am scared of this butterfly that plagues my dreams at night.   I am scared of this spider that
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
Teacher, teacher I'm not sure if you know My mind may be open But my heart remains closed   Teacher, teacher Please, just hear me out There are so many things
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 
You won't answer my calls
Above me I see an open sky, Blue as can be. No restrictions, unlimited beauty. Nothing can compare.   To my left I see black. I see fear, I see death. I see the darkness,
Fear burns hot as we acknowledge the other, he and I. Never in my wildest dreams would I fathom such a demon sitting before my very eye, But that's where such things begin.

I don’t understand Why so many kids Feel this way About living this life We’ve never had to Pay a bill
I had a recurring dream as a child
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.
I'm a 17 year old girl from Brooklyn. When I tell people that I don't say it with a smile. Instead I frown. I look down at the ground that I walk on everyday in Brooklyn I fear for my generation
  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
I've always wondered what goes on in other people's minds I've always wondered where life is going to take me I've always wanted to know why everything happens for a reason
Here we go..again. So you loved me? You cared so much about..me?
Puffy eyes; sleep deprived.
She closes her eyes and sees nothing.
"No kids?" he asked, incredulous "Aren't you concerned about preserving your lineage?" I, too, am in disbelief of such a question Which implies you are more concerned about spreading your seed
I will make promises,
Love is something I don't understand.Hell, I don't think anyone does.When you say "I love you."And they say "Don't."How do you expect me to changeThe way I feel about youIt's not much of a choice.
She stands speechless as the colors dribble down the wall
Fat Girl in the buffet line,Fills half of her plat
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.
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
It takes a while. Speaking. Writing. Communicating. These are all things which people take for granted. Luck. Something which does not come easily to me. Ouch! Unfortunately, this simple word is said a lot. Almost daily. Too often. Brain. Head.
Light. Now it's dark. Knife. In my heart. Fight. In my head. Cry. In my bed. Shadows. Closer. Getting. Older. Falling. Crawling. Game.
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
I am living Yet not really living   I am laughing But not really laughing   I am seeing But not truly seeing
Curling tight my back facing the sun knees to my eyes and hands held tight feet tucked under pressed into the wall hiding fearing not willing to face the day
Mixtures of browns Mixtures of greens Smells of nature Smells of safety All rush by As I bolt by Bolt down this path Dirt on my feet Dust clouds behind me No bird sings
I can't stay away.
  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 know I fuck things up a lot.My friendships may crumble and my future is a bridge of strings over a river of uncertainty.When I'm two steps behind life I get lost easily,but I always manage to find you.
I have never realizedHow alone I've felt until this very moment...It hit me like I had just ran into a brick wallI hate how horrible I feelHow depressing this emotion isAnd to think that my biggest fear was to be aloneWhen I've felt alone for 4 yr
Sitting inside my porcelain tea cup I open my sewing kit and pull out a needle In the light, it glimmers With a loop at the end Meant to put a string through And pull me along  
  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. 
Alone. 5 words. 2 syllables. A major problem within itself. Not only are we the cause but we are the reason. Yet as time passes something begins to happen.
Of all the words I could speak,None of them could satisfy my heart,My toung can not tell it what it is feeling,Only my heart knows that,
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.
Faith: one motive, a solitary pebble, minuscule in size, enormous in spirit, burning the demon’s evil plot; where disloyalty to self’s morals crumbles like the Twin Towers, the disrupted chariot as horses
Sometimes we threw punches, Both verbal and with our fist, Though the bruises left over, Whether on our ego or on our face,
The world as she knows it comes to an end.The pain, the suffering, the life of my best friend.Her soft fluffy body so frail and so depleted,I can't help but to think that her life wasn't completed.
A woman wrote a poem and titled it love Because she was deeply in love Everywhere she went it seemed to be there The sun was shining and the wind was blowing It was a perfect day  
Children scribble on the walls,Nonsensical graffitiOn the inside of the womb,Cut up and bleedingInternally.I've fucked up and I'm fucked.This demon called paranoia haunts me before bedtime
Creeping from the depths of its evil thrown, A disease, uncontrolled, Leaving its victims all alone, Never sleeping, Hears the weeping, Of those he mangles in a dark unknown.  
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
Some say life is like a game. There are winners and losers. Some cheat their way out. Some take it serious. What's the prize? Pride, hope, or even love.  At what cost?
The days I spent living my life in the shadow of another are wasted. Why must I skulk in the shadows while you get to walk in the light? Is it possible that perhaps I was never meant to be seen, to be noticed?
The Fear of Failure You can do it, they all said No one can get in the way of your success, they assured Here is a list of resources to get you there, they gave
I'm like a child who cries itself to sleep, but instead of crying, what I do is think. I think myself insane, analyzing every bit, until my heart rate quickens and I work up a panicking fit.
  You feel it coming, You always do. The creepy crawlies are coming for you.     They itch, you scratch,
 
You're the time taken up, I will never have enough. You're the words, flooding down, I see the ink, pouring out. You're the dreams I see at night, I can't explain this sense of "right."
Childish Innocence ripped away, it’s now dark outside, yet it is day. “How can they smile, laugh, and play?”, when my childish innocence was just ripped away.   Accidently created, always viewed with disgust,
Moving round and round in the maze inside my head. Contained in this padded room that's stealing my sanity, here I wait with my tortures thoughts, conjuring my eternal reward.
Some are afraid of spiders Some are afraid of the dark Some are called irrational Some are called faint-of-heart   Some fear the things they hear Some fear the things they see
I'm lounging against this ancient, moss-clad, grey barked  stately tree, Hoping to find respite from  my toiling, tiresome travel.   It shelters me with its stooping, sweeping, swaying
Did it once, did it twice, I moved into lonelier night, What is there to gain, When I can't move away from the pain? Growing up was always the cure, But now I'm not so sure, So I'm done.
What am I scared of? Why am I scared? I cant seem to answer the questions that I ask myself... We all have fears, But where do they come from Do they fall from the sky? Like a raindrop in the sky...
"As soon as you walk in tomorrow turn in your homework" See my teacher expects me to waltz up in here, doing stuff we are never going to apply to life. y=mc to the power of "why am even i here"
you know that type of scared you get when you could walk through your basement at a steady pace but when you turn the lights off you run up stairs as if you were being chased well i get that feeling sometimes
 Thundercloud come, make a sound! to shudder up my spine and bring tears down in fear… For I am afraid of what’s inside, afraid to face my fears.   Lightening, strike! Come blind my eyes
i was thinking about how low people can get and how low people can feel so that they believe they are alone but are really surrounded by people who see them
Droplets of sweat run down my face. The pounding in my head just won’t go away. I know my turn is next. The anxiety has my mind grasped ever so tightly. It squeezes and squeezes, never letting go. I panic.
I had spent days, what had seemed to be months clenching to the piece of life I had. I was lost, in a chaotic silence, hoping and praying for redemption, for savior.
If only I could sleepinstead, my hand crampswith the terrified mindof a hurt museand prose falls forthfrom soul to penand closes a Pandora's Box without hopefor small moments more
  Walls are fallen Words come alive Memories are seen History is broken Future is forgotten Emotions are meaningless
  Silence   My mother always asks me, Why I can never seem to sit still. My muscles tighten and an excuse is quickly constructed,
Here we are . . . Time, space within the eternal love of the Creator. How did we come together to this world of chaotic fear? My soul has accepted this question whose answer is beyond this life.
Fear   Possibly the biggest four letter word   The future I fear   Rejection I fear  
I have met my spirit Even touched it once With a primly havened tip of a harbored finger But was shocked so shocked that I beheld such a thing in my dank, cavernous arua,
When she was in Limbo,there was a crescendoand then, a crash.They said her core was mountain ashbut she was dead.and all there was to see was red.smash, smack, clatter clang clunk.
What’s a beginning? The first, a start? For I believe in no beginning to this art. I have written these same words, felt these same feelings. I have painted these same problems and colored in my same solutions.
Here- Hiding in trees  Listening for any change Paralyzed in fear      
Has a good friend named Fear. Together, they wreak havoc through the mind. They make the potential behind events exponentially greater. Imagination unlocks the mind and allows Fear
 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.
I used to fear ghostsGhosts of peopleGhosts of pastsGhosts of memoriesGhosts of what could have beenGhosts, I thought, were the essence of fearThen the ghosts came to me
They say holding on tightwill make it all right,but letting go is so much harder to dowith a glimmer of hope still in your heart.
With each waking breathe, my soul quivers for fear. I cant stop these feelings inside me.   He tells me to breathe only breathe, its all we ever have left but why? 
Clown is tall Clown is scary Clown makes me very wary Too much fear Not enough thought Push clown into water Clown drowns No more sound from clown
    Close your eyes. Thats what everyone does during a horror movie. When the music swells like a wave, Warning you of some unforeseen terror.
Butterflies In the Night Drift Away Without a Fight Lose Myself Lost in You Wondering why But Such a Pretty View No more sadness No more pain? Watch That Blood
You
The fear of you, Of you being near me   Near me, hurting me, Hurting me without any regret   Any regret of what you’ve done,
Da
When my Great Grandmother was near death in the hospital I was curious to see what an old person's butt looks like, so I kept standing on my tippie toes to catch a see
I suddenly realized (at five years old) Death applies to me too   That children become grown-ups who become grandmas who were the ones who died   And I was a children.  
On Hallow's Eve, the ghouls began to gather in a Massachusetts barn,
I sat in a dark cold room Surrounded by my friends. My feet shivered on the cold stone floor, And fear filled the air.   I wanted to know why
  Each time I peered down the rabbit hole I got a glimpse of a forgotten world It’s dreamt about, but no one ever dares to go there I wasn’t any better Just an audience, a speculator from bird’s eye view
  In the dark of the night I face my window with open eyes I hesitate to bring back happy thoughts Despite being trapped where the fear lies   My memories bring neither peace nor comfort
             Sat down and stared at the mesmerizing sky,Didn't expect to find a friendI can't even liePeace was all we yearned.
My only thoughts were do you care? I wasn't your average student and you weren't the average teacher. You saw something in me that you said needed to be brought out.   I couldn't bring it out.
Creepy crawlies trample the pillows Of those who are long lost Some are visited by grieving whispers And others still lay where they were first tossed   Smoky fog rises from the ground
hands and knees burn from the rug’s roughness and the trees bow their heads children’s faces wet with the sins of yesterday ropes pulled
    The room goes cold The door squeaks open And footsteps grow louder A hand grabs the covers
I thought I had it all figured out I thought I knew  how to stop the walls from falling in again.  But they fell  and I'm begging of you please  to come save me again.
A joker isn’t always funny, A house isn’t always a home, A father isn’t always a dad, A bad person isn’t always an enemy. But twelve have passed, and thousands remain suffering. And by now it is Thursday,
This is for the man on the corner of First and Dunn with a sign that breaks hearts and makes everybody run home to their heaters and high-tech computers
My head hurts. / My throat screams. / My hands shake. / This is no dream. / My eyes water. / I crouch down. / I cover my ears, / To shut out sound. / I miss my home. / I miss the quiet. / It's just too much. / All of this riot. / I want a hug.
Of days when I have forced my will To school, and kept myself so still, And haven't uttered cries of grief, Of your incompetent relief - Deriving from your lack of skill, In the ability to feel
I'm just another number Come one day swing and sway Read the book, smile say "hi" Place the mask Where it always has to go   Smile wide my baby girl  Show 'em what they want to see  
I’d say it in person, but I fear rejection Because when a student speaks out there’s surely ejection You ask who I am, just look at my friends I stay true to my values while others change like trends
i am scared i am here on the outside i show no fear this is new i am here within time there will be no fear
i am scared i am here on the outside i show no fear this is new i am here within time there will be no fear
Imagine the cage – deep inside your mind The one all seem to fear Draped in Black and far from kind Overwhelming, yet hidden, and near The Beast inside, it rattles the cage We struggle to keep it mute
When you see this soft-spoken, shy girl sitting at her desk, You see someone weak As I quietly doodle away on my note-pad, You see someone distracted When every other girl giggles and laughs with her friends,
I am Female. I am Girl. I am Woman. I am large hips, I am tiny waist, I am large chest, I am stereotype. I am pretty face, makeup, lipstick, I am beauty.  
I used to believe in 11:11 wishes,  Used to dream of midnight kisses,  I believed in these things and much more,  But all that was in a time long, long, before,  Before the boy ripped at my chest, 
Everlasting, perpetual, eternal wait Each moment longer than the last Seems hopeless to leave it to fate Each joyful moment too short to last Biding time till the day should come
Can't take it anymore Like flowers in a storm I've always been an angel With a demon in the core.
I often find myself listening to my own mind I hear it think  And register emotion I find it hard to control It is fascinating And frightening. 
I fear so terribly much   When I write I want to hide it stop those mocking eyes   the thought of judgement is terror I'm not perfect petrifying   I fear
Summer was in the air, I roamed without a care.Although I lived in fear,Because the end could be near,I was never afraid,My mind was made.I would never let us fall apart,I could feel it in my heart.
Fear
Somewhere, over the monochromatic archAcross the skyThe shadows of twisted figures against the sunWrithe and shriek  A daunting vision brings forthAn unsettling fearThe cries shake the earthAs the shadows grow The horizon begins to burnA blinding
Walls all around Tears fall on the ground Black is all i see Fear wells up inside of me; but there is always hope in view A chance to start anew Obstacles constanly stand in the way 
Hear the laughter and not the end Past mistakes in my head Break the tip of my pencil lead The end of the end is only the beginning  When I listen to those words I only hope that you're kidding
Those who believe say that 'God' only gives you what you can handle,that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger,I ask you:What sort of twisted joke is this, then, when the strong only continue to get tested?
I feel the cage Just beneath my skin There bending and shifting Just barely containing The raging beast   It grows there
This world at my fingertips that spins and twirls takes it’s time with flips that makes me want to hurl   Keys to the very end
Addicted to organization  through words, throughout your thoughts  Addicted " to a certain kind of sadness"  within your fears and your doubts  Addicted to the words that bring you up 
Late at night Witching hour The stars a sight The baby’s sour
Want it gone Away forever But I know That it’ll never. Focus on one Impossible. Focus on many Probable.
Looking around. Biting lip. Sickness whirls into your stomach. Nausea hits you out of nowhere. Palms sweat. All of a sudden it feels unbearable to just stay still. You have to move. You have to escape. But you can't.
I am young but old I wonder what it feels like to fly I hear the whisper of a butterfly's wing I see the colors of the wind I want to go to heaven one day and see my grandma I am young but old  
Can't breathe, need air,Hands shaking, almost there.Rushing, pulling, running,The taste, simply stunning.
Our clock is tickingAs our last years are coming to an endA time when we leave our childhood years,When we leave all our old friends.The old tree diesAnd the new roots beginAs we part our separate ways
It's an electric impulse That makes you turn down the road Which had been unknown to you before   9 watts made you think Different is new New is better   But if you had known
There is a place I go  When I'm alone A quiet space Away from all the chaos Of the world that we've misnamed home When there is time to spare It is there That I will wander
  There is always a balanced A pretender A giver A fighter A lover Certainly Uncertain The paradox of a forgotten tomorrow and a foretold yesterday Can’t exude the pain, the relapse or fear
From as far  well as far as I can remember  From the cold fronts of December to the hot summers of July in everything  I've done it was to prove that I could do  anything as long as try,
Remember me ? it has been a while since you last glarred you heaven blue eyes into my crystal clear soul  years since your devilish grin capture my glance Do you remeber me ? Take a seat, let me refresh your memory
My imagination starts to linger to places I don’t want to think about. My stomach turns upside down churning and My heart drops.
The darkest night hides a chilling truth, Invisble to even the most adept sleuth. Creaking, whining, shrieking, twining, Sneaking through the depths subliming, Reaching out to the gleaming sun,
I loved you so much,Your feel.Your touch.The way you walked.The way you talked.I loved it all, so much.
You're not the one for me You don't even know who you love I don't know why it took me so long to see That the greatest love of all comes from the one above  
Down in a ditch. Hearing sounds of freedom. Wanting to escape but not finding the right way out. Nothing to do but wait. Wait as time goes by and years get older. Old enough to look back at what could have been.
A cheetah hides in the shadows, As I hide from my fears. A cheetah is never afraid, yet I am. A cheetah attacks its prey with practice ease. Yet no matter how I try I fail to.
The first time at my fifth grade Graduation, I was onstage saying a speech. I felt nervous because it was a big group of people. The first time I have a wrestling match, I always
At what point is someone deemed approachable?I do not smile at your passI do not engage in conversationI simply do not care about you at all.Why did you follow me to my car?Did I capture your eye?
These are the things that I'll never tell you; The things that you deserve to hear. These are the things that I hold in secret; The things that my heart fears. They say that we accept the love
If I may only have my hands for companions And must live my days On a bed in the darkest hole Then let me have a pen   Let my eyes grow weary from squinting Let my fingers cramp
  Revel in many, first the art of fear. To paint fond pictures of the coming day, To abscond the life I hold closely dear, When butterflies can soon fly astray,
Quiet in bed A desert bed  Expansive, tan With pillowed Whitecaps;   It’s a sea! Heads on arms
Fear, feel me As I cry. With cold hands,  Twisting my heart And tearing my love. Hiding underneath the skin Afraid, alone. Appearing like  The torture of my indecision  And fear,
Fear Black and cold as an evil man’s heart Courses through the veins of all who experience the unknown Struck like an icy hard bell in the dead of winter, cold pulse reverberating off every stone wall Fear  
Please excuse me for a moment, because I have to say something. I'm about full to burst, but I don't want to say it. I know I have to, though. We have a year, almost exactly, that's all and you'll be here
I remember when the fireflies danced in the night When hearts grew warmer, as coldness sprouted to life. When a single sign of affection brewed a storm inside of me and I pursued the glimpse of happiness.
Let go of the ledge;Don’t be afraid,Let go of your fear:There is freedom in fallingas your heart stops beating and flutters instead.Once you let go, you’ll enter the darkness,
            It was as if the nighttime decided that it wanted to be with me forever,             As if it knew… it knew I didn’t want it.             The large pitch black face of the night, that devil,
-You lie through your teeth When it comes to how-are-you’s “I’m good” or “I’m okay,” Is what you’d instead say -Feeling lonely day by day Not that you weren’t alone in the first place
  Watch the rain drizzle downIt threatens to ne'er endBut all wounds someday healAnd wings will always mend
As the sunlight slips between my fingertipsI watch the shadows fallThey fall in lacy breaths over my skin,Making darkness and light seem so intricate
The roaring of the seas, Clogs my ears for me. Fears pound around my head, Hidden now and then, By rising droplet armies,
A girl suffered through many hardships, and she bore it all for a while. She had many people that came and then left, she took abandonment with a smile. Her persona changed over time, from heartfelt to harsh fiend.
Walls built up they block out any glimpse of peace friend or foe i'll never Know   Where shines truth in the scared shrouded face of the girl I used
you cannot tell if it is ascent or descent, either way it’s happening too fast. within your body the lighter forces that wish still to rise wrestle with gravity, your ears do strange things.
You sit ,stop and wait then you realize your would has been shaken in to almost nothing,you reach for the universal remote but it can only control the tv and then you wonder what was it like to be me,so you fall and phase digging deeper than befor
Based off of “Nothing Gold Can Stay” by Robert Frost   Day’s first rise is bright Her bleakest tinge to light Her early beams aglow True beauty showing so slow Then magic disappears
Whenever you're scaredJust know I'll always be hereWhenever you're aloneJust know I'll always be nearWhenever you're nervousJust know there's nothing to fearIf times go badDon't be sad
Where did the time go. When I awoke I was where I needed to be but do not remember how I got there. I am no longer in control. My body is enduring pain, but my mind is elsewhere in perfect serenity.
I think that starting something is almost harder than ending it you've got all of these things that you want to say but you've got no way to say them once you end something no more hurt can come of it
What Is this thing we call love? I don’t seem to understand Is love hurting the one person in your life who did everything for you? Or is love getting a girl pregnant & leaving her?
Pen to paper Fingers to keys Words spitting from these blistered lips Words that bare my soul I hide myself behind smiles and laughter So you don't see my pain, feel my terror
3 times they play in my mind. 3 times different, 0 times the same. I try to figure it out. I try to pray to know. I want to know, but I do not. I want to have memories to share. 
What does it mean to be free? Free is when you're allowed to do as you please.You are given the privilege to be who you decide you want to be.But are we really free?
We all know that feeling That feeling we use for excitement and adventure That feeling we have when we take first steps That feeling we have when looking into the future It's a scared four letter word
I am not a track star, but I run anyways. I run from my fears, and my pain. I don’t just run from the bad, I sprint from the good. I run from those who wish to help, Who wish to love me for all that I am.
I am at the crossroadsI see what I can be and what I would have to do.But I am scared, only I can decide what I can do,And if I fail it is only myself to blame.
"I am so disappointed in you," rings in my ears, But I have fought my entire life to make you proud. "How could you do this to us?" Here come the tears, You have never expressed that I have let you down, out loud.
I yell at you day after day, begging you to take this pain away. I ask you why you have allowed such things to happen to me but all I get in reply is an empty silence and my own sigh. I have been good I say, so why do this to me?
(poems go here) I write because I don't know how not to, how not to express the pains and gains from the claims and vanity of this life.
  Appearing in the reflection of lights, Mystical and quiet, with sea deep eyes, Her form changing day and night, The creature I see who brings me fright.  
It's been 6 years; but I still remember the day Where all my trust in you was lost; "My Father", the role you were supposed to play Overjoyed, I finally had a dad at age seven
I fear for the man of untouched ice for it lacks the warmth of love, the healing tears from where it has once been broken, and the feeling of being saved by love to help mend what has been scarred.
Inhale the musk of defeat A strangers hand held out for the weak A voice carving symbols in the sand Carry away my soul to distant lands    I can wake up anytime  But this life Is mine
Life is so predictable and disappointing. At first its perfect and you experience love for the first time. You engage in that perfect first kiss with the boy you've always dreamed of dating.
Noiseless voices in my head  Asking, begging to be let free.  Harshing breathing,  Trembling hands,  A small cry seeking help.  Angry shouts,  Loud words,  Rumbling floors.  Dark clouds blur my sight,  Fear searches for the light.   Years go by,  
I say I love truth,But all I am is lies.It has been this way from my youth,to hide what I am inside.Sometimes you look into my eyes,But all courage in me has died.From dawn until late dusk,
Something isn't right,  this feeling I feel. I see no sight, but this is real.   This insane pain, is something I can't handle. I hide away in shame,
They are broken, shaking, bitter and lost— I know it well. I have been standing in the dark Shadowy corner of my cave, Shivering in the mildewed enclosure. I have scraped at these rocks
Anxiety I feel helpless and hopeless As if no one understands I am scared But of what? I am scared of myself   I need an outlet I need a path Why is this happening to me?
When the sky looks haunted and the night reeks of death Where can one turn? Sleepless nights and restless days of doing nothing But feeding my endless craves   Never satiated  
Did it see me, I could not tell, those demon's eyes, were a tranfixed spell, it tore the fabric of reality, and pressed its weight upon my chest, this was to be my final rest,
A bare rubber sole taps hastily agaiunst the linoleum tile, pencil erasers bounce continuously all the while. In accordance with a strict militant cadence, the test takers continually lose patience.
  Sometimes i Press an ear to the ceiling and listen for a voice; the voice. No one speaks. Nothing changes. I remain un-phased. solitary in a room of one's own,
I’m not really good at this, but here goes. I’ve been an American since before I could walk on my toes.   I don’t remember coming,
unknownmisunderstood wish I could just blend into the cornerwaiting for people to walk by unseenunhearduntouched forever lost in the world of the misplaced,with the forgotten and unwanted items of the world blending into the furniturethat's what i
This World We're In Full of fear of the end There are some who seek For the greater good- But can great be misunderstood This World We're In Full of love and enjoyment A house for my family, is money well spent And those who tend to live forever..
Doubt is my destiny, faith my breath.To tomorrow, carefully I live, on pain of death.Interlocked fingers and combatting thoughts,It's love that lingers and the fear has been fought.
If all the trees went red,would you notice with your heart or your head? If all the sweets went sour,would you still devour? if all ends came with friends,would we want to mend?
The outside world is exciting Frightening even The sky and sun seem so inviting Birds chirp happily   When the darkness closes in The stars become luminous It is at these times I return
I tend to get scared when I think about my life. What happens when it just ends? I've never really believed in a god or an after life. All of that just seems silly and make believe.
I woke up that day I saw something new It was that perfect yawn From a great sleep I never thought to have I was inducted It was exclusive I had something special That  made me special
I entered a new place It was different and scary I was afraid of it I didn’t know what would happen I knew most But also knew none There were those who knew me When I didn’t know myself
  I watch her sinking helplessly through this glass barrier.   Thrashing in fear Panic   She's losing breath. I feel it in my heart. I'ts so tragic.   I know I need her.
Is it just me or can you not see Just how lonely life can be When you're afraid and they've never stayed And so sanity is becoming frayed
Into the maw of hare and fear, Drawing you ever near. Many will enter and few will leave, but those who do, lose all sanity.    The maw holds a presance,  Of which you would never believe. 
I finally gave up, Gave in. Stopped lying to myself.   We weren't getting better, we never would.   Your insensitivity, Too much for my fragile heart.  
We'd promised each other "No Feelings."   But I don't think our hearts were in it.   From our first smile, touch, laugh, and kiss, something began to grow in us...  
Ask me who I am, and I will not hear you, for I am deep within this crowd calling out my own name. I will not know the sound of my own voice until it whispers back. Until then, I will spend my hours
War, hunger, and death surround me. I pray that He is here. "Do not be afaid."   Storms rage, dark is growing stronger. I cry out to Him. "Do not be afraid."   The antichrist has come.
I see your tears everyday and just want to hold you tight,I hear you when you cry in your pillow every single night,I watch you go to work and whisper I love you in your ear,
Life takes a grip It holds my brain And whispers             “You don’t know” Fear             Childish             Daunting             Paralyzing             Continuous  
I’ve never been more scared in my life, Days past and time just dwells on. My dreams do not wait for me, But seem to leave me behind. I am lost in a standstill, forever wondering. I’m scared.  
Don't you realize what this means? a strand of hair on the head of the globe a black pixel on a static screen that's all you are and all you mean   But that was a feature in yesterday's paper
I met a man a while ago, While I was walking all alone. He was an elderly man, poor of health But he'd never let that stop him.   We met everyday or so, He told me stories of his life;
Slowly the old man wanders down the steps His knees don’t bend and his eyes barely see He falls, curses the world under his breath
Tossed out of the ocean I’m gasping God take me back This agony is everlasting g Deaths cold fingertips Tantalize and twist
I know it's a sin But oh, bondage Where did it begin? I can't trace my steps My heart to slaughter Flesh ripped apart Crimson water Cascading in a river
From out that doorway I detect the smell of home, or rather, that-which-would-be-home, if I had made it my home.
The implications of your strength confuse My emotions and leave me perplexéd; Do I find safety in your able arms, Or do I fear the strength sup’rior to mine? The way you take control is my excuse
The dots on the wall become bugs; crawl. Your second skin implores you to buy in. Allow the separation of sanity to fall, Like the rain of grace, with razors instead of peace. The vociferous outward expression;
You and I were the best part, of the worst combination. I was the sun, radiant, passionate, fiery, bringing the brightness of a good day to all those that I touch with my glowing beams.
Unable to move, Unable to breathe, I’m afraid for my life Yet, I don’t want to leave. In front of me It sits and stares. Daring me to face it I’ll take the dare.
There are two each holds one hand. The one on the left has known me the longest but doesn’t know me that much. The one on the right knows a lot about me but does not know what to do with it.
I have trained to be a great house, with thick walls, doors only to open on my account. I needed to separate, to investigate, to deny and to approve for them to come in. Its under my control.
Its like swallowing flint To be here. Among the talented people The children of broken homes Motor homes And hill-top homes. From the highest of life To the lowest of lows Poets, word weavers,
Deep in the darkness of the forest The quiet death lay So still and so pale, It's sight darkens the day.
I write so that I might survive another broken night. When I pick up a pen instead of a blade, I can escape into the world where he doesn’t exist, where fear nearly vanishes.
I think metaphors and analogies are overused Like, here we all go again trying to sound all deep Trying to make some profound point out of some thought that we imagined was original
I sat upon a hill and looked out at the wide expanse before me, Rich green grass covered the earth beneath me, and an honest Blue sky stretched out endlessly People walked, and ran, and laughed, and spoke, and sang
My brain struggles to translate. There are multitudes of boxes and spilled paperwork, Squares and circles and words running down the walls All by themselves. I love them
The traitors of the past were never washed away They have procreated and created the haters of today They continue to feed of negativity And deter you from accomplishing any relative impossibility
I hold a golden heart And I protect it in my breast A prize so wondrous, and so rich That it should rarely, if ever be breached A golden heart worth more than earthly riches That holds a power great
Unsurpassed, unwavering, unthinkable fear. There is no assurance of tomorrow. Any known stability, ripped from my grasp. The voices without end. There is no escape! They will be coming for me. Too late!
Every night in sleep, I journey to the Land of Nod. Where strangely, my senses suspend about— exists separately, yet a part of me.
Fear is the black void that overcomes the world around you at an unexpected time It smells like the stale coldness of an extremely cold winter night
The words float in my mind Like a river trickling by Whispers in my ear Here and then gone
Come here, take my hand. Fear me not, I understand. It is your fear speaking, and I've come for you. I've come to let you think, I've been what's stopping you. See the truth is, I'm not. You just don't listen.
Old kids as an society will eventually take about 30 prescriptions pills, but as humans we suffer from greed. Our greed complains for more life, but to have had life is enough. Our greed stems from fear, the fear of being casket sharp and gray.
Questioning my little love The touch that lifts my fingerprints Nails extend into a point To grab towards a silent look And fasten on the bending lines When I’ve let you in
In this world exists somewhere peaceful in all its natural beauty; A place where the evergreen grows, And the fallen leaves rest on the grounds of the earth,
I have heard that the sky is the limit but I do not want to stop until I touch the sun and dance in the moon’s pearly crescent.
Little thistle, a prickly pear, how I never saw you there. A little hair with a little vine, unbeknownst this could soon be mine
Life is hard and overwhelming at times But with each day new discoveries come Even if all your living on is a dime Laugh, dance for your life and then hum
Spinning Spinning Spinning Each memory, each moment, each thought is connected by a strand of consciousness The image blurs together as time stands still. Sounds become mute and feelings become numb.
The Feared Beast
My world was turning crashing. I try to stand one hand against the wall. Efforts with no reward left in vain. Aching painfully tears of frustration running down my face. Everything is turning.
Life is a car ride. You may face bumps in the road, But you keep driving.
[A series of Haiku about my apprehensions, goals, ambitions, and determination to return to college] Clouds above loom dark Shattered by the wind and light A revelation
"Hope deferred makes the heart grow sick," But Hopelessness seems faithful; true; sincere. While Life through darkened billow beckons "Come!", The heart finds haven under Fear.
With one finger I hold my life and through a very weak grip. If it ever were to accidentally fall, my world would be sheer havoc.
My hand shakes as I write. Lines and curves. Quivering like a crisp leaf, as the calm before the storm dissipates. I have so. Many. Questions.
What's done is done. But, as sure as sunrise and set, my day will come. As certain as the changing colors of autumn. As definite as the pumping and pulsing of that muscle in your chest. But don't count on the latter,
Some days it’s so easy to forget; it’s like it never happened. Other days, it’s impossible to ignore; I wish it never happened. I thought I could leave it all behind, but it keeps catching up to me,
I sit outside in the night alone. Looking to the sky for the lights that shine. Resting here my mind wonders from place to place. I try to make sense of how I became so impaired.
Blade to skin, my wicked sin My vision dims, the rush begins. Hidden reminders of my pain, Red teardrops stream down like rain. Winding lines across my wrist My flirtation with Deaths kiss.
I was laying out in the snow one fine day, Wondering what life's journey was in my way. I looked out with a blank stare, Realizing moments like these are very rare. Standing there optimistic about whats ahead,
Take a bite of the poison It’s the fate that you’ve chosen Eat it slow, swallow fast Making each sensation last Bittersweet tastes of heaven and hell Take more; go on, you might as well
I find what my life means When I take time to multiply my success n not my dreams You ask what does that actually mean Do I give up on my passions for social standing and money schemes
(Our vision to move forward in our different paths is constantly fogged by doubt and uncertainty often spouted by the voices. The Voices,like the fog, can obstruct the view of our desired path.
Laying in bed thoughts are running through my head. I remember you, I really do I just wish I had one last moment to speak to you. All the times we shared together those memories will stay in my hear forever.
As children we are taught at a young age to always wait Until. Wait Until it is the right time to reach our goals and dreams. Wait Until making the next move.
Anger pulsates through me Red hot it radiates It is a fire inside, consuming me The flames blaze and crackle Red, orange, yellow, and white blue ascend inside The heat of frustration flare within
Alone, not wanted by anyone Feelings of love no longer entwine my heart. I am on the brink of chaos, destruction, hopelessness. Darkness swirls around me Clouding my hopes, my dreams.
It is times like this when men we see, Our fragile broken destinies. When through false strength and proud façade, Appears the pea beneath the pod. It’s times like these as men we know,
The silence is screaming. It’s an invisible fog clouding my judgment and burning my eyes with its icy touch. It’s so dense that I can’t breath without it expanding in my throat; a fog so solid that it chokes my airway with its endless emptiness.
I should tell you that the adoration in your eyes Shines brighter than any I’ve ever known But just like the boys before you Whose fumbling hands couldn’t wait To let go You, too, will fade.
Life as you know it changes. You never know what will happen. You never know who you will meet. Sometimes people are meant to be in your life temporarily or permanent. What you will never expect is stuff that happens.
here are always good and bad things in people's life there are always lessons to learn there are always going to be people who are either going to be good or bad for you but in the end it proves who really is your friend
He stands under the flickering street lamp A suit of black silk and suede Glinting a brooding red from corner to corner A sharp smirk leans against a cane of bone and obsidian
There is no Death. Only a transferring of souls, both young and old. The flesh may pass away but the soul finds new place to stay. Death has no victory.
I'm alone no one to comfort me nor to help me But forsake me like it's their god given right
Fear is the darkest element of life. It sees no end in sight. Acquiring the shape of a murky gem It comes into the life of those unsuspecting stem. 5 With death and destruction it comes
This loneliness is dementing me. I speak not of the demons veiled behind every corner. They wait until it's dark Until I have thought myself into a mad frenzy Then they show me the past. What I did
This is a world that has ended. Nothing is born. Nothing dies. Time doesn’t even exist. If I were searching for a place to be born, then I know it should not be here. There is another being here. Can she see me? I am not born to this world.
The morning comes and you're already on my mind. From the moment I wake up, 'til i got o sleep at night. You're so far, yet so close. I want to meet you, but im tremulous. At the thought of you near me...
Dreams are hard to make They act like they wanna escape and fake but they're also like a tape they play in your mind then rewind in your sleep now you know that those dreams I wanna keep stuck in my sleep
There is a pit in my stomach That could swallow the world. My vision blurs and distorts And sees what it wants to see.
i simply wish to speak without a curse holding me back i dream of letting words come out from the inside out without a trail of tears following falling from my eyes as if they were the skies
I'm no longer a kid. I've matured mom, yes I did. You keep me locked up, And I'm getting really fed up. It's nine o'clock and you're telling me togoto sleep.
I see you Your hand is raised You shake with anger I have bruises I have to keep them hidden I can't let anyone see Its my fault I can't let them know I'm afraid it'll hurt more if I do
Drained. Life has been drained from me. Care. I don’t anymore. Live. Something that is getting harder to do. Be. Something I just can’t anymore.
Welcome back, it's been some weeks baby I know your mind's way past crazy I know you don't know that I don't know your thoughts But today, we figured it out and honey...you're so distraught
Tiny eyes shouldn’t see what I had, Tiny hands aren’t meant to hold secrets, A tiny heart shouldn’t break like that, The tears I cry, they started then, So many years ago. When he came in and took what he did,
Maybe it's good not to know certain things It keeps the mysteries more willing to believe Why happiness stings Or why there are locks and keys And, not knowing how to reach dreams It isn't as bad as it seems
I once believed graves beautiful, Magnificent scrawls repeating life after death. Bleached white and glowing brilliantly, Glossy stone records the Passed's name distinct.
You fear it, The door you never dared to look behind. You're content with not knowing; Scared of what you will find. What if the door leads to better? Or worse…. What if?
Walking in the black mist, I feel an impending sense of doom. I see nature on either side of me, But I feel all alone.
Call it a crisis, call it a curse, How sad a song to sum of my life in a verse. Fuck it; there's one thing I know to settle the score, But you're better than that, Or so they say, how the hell would they know anyway?
When it senses my essence feel the cold presence Shiver from the sent chills down my spine it slowly invades my mind Silently scream within this dream life fades away it seems Wish I wasn't here
I’m Scared to try because I’m scared to fail I’m scared to die because I’m scared of hell I’m scared to kiss, I’m scared to hug , I’m scared of sex because I’m scared to touch .
Silence so loud. Silence so cold. I've never felt so alone. You can't see it you can't hear it But its the thing we all fear. Hope is lost. Never found. for now.
I never looked back the day I left A thing I always seem to neglect Something my mother noted Whether I was going to school for the first time Or for Basic Training Or going to Iraq
Your brown eyes enchant me While My insides haunt me With wings of butterflies flapping around Breaking the spider webs for a new era My thoughts provoke me to say shut-up While my heart is whispering speak up
In the black of night the fear is found, An om'nous glowing Baskervillian Hound.   To fight it is to stay awake and pray, And wait for comfort from the dawn of day.  
When confusion sets And you lose your bets The world blinks in stone; When guardians fail And morals pale You think you're all alone. When leaders fall And sickness crawls
You said you wouldn’t forget me, You said you’d always have time for me. But lately all I hear Is you making excuses. You don’t want to remember me, You don’t want to see me.
Who am I? What can I say? The sting of thorns dripping with poison brands my heart as life slips from those eyes that I thought I knew so well. In my state, I have become the doll that mourns in silence.
I envy the sheets that wrap and twist around you. I envy the pillow where you rest your head. I envy the floorboards to which you whisper your sleeping secrets and that catch your seldom tears.
A sneaky fox, A thief in the night That’s what he was Tall and thin, Like a pine tree He had a terrifying Surprise for me. My memory is vivid,
They say A small stream carved The Grand Canyon Maybe that's why I'm so afraid of water Crumble (you're tired)
What happened to Society? What happened to this world? When we cannot leave our home without precautionary measures. When we cannot leave our windows down for fear of burglary,
Society stalks me, A spectre of the REM world, Like Krueger…it creeps up on me, Only this time…I know I won’t wake up. My life is a terrible secret, trapped inside Pandora’s Box.
