My heart is like an unformed lump in the hands of a sculptor- you. Who with love can transform it into a thing of beauty to be cherished and admired... Or-
I have grown and bloomed, but my color is wasted. Unnoticed. Unwanted. Untouched.   I gathered my spirit and threw it atop yours in hopes that you would yield to comfort
I see the city lights They’re a little too bright tonight I’m going too fast in the fast lane I’ve become a little more reckless Since you left
I miss laughing with you About everything and nothing Laughing until we cried And crying until we laughed We were this unbreakable unit of people
  It was a long time ago That you tried to kiss me  In the creaking book store Next to the little red diner It was a long time ago that i thought
Our table isn’t set for two you lost me and I lost you there are splinters in my wrist for the night we could’ve kissed can you feel me slip away
if you love me let me go your words: an axe to my throat blood is fucking everywhere you ripped it out of me what happened to forever
it’s easy to be lonely in the lights of this city wondering why you can never look me in the eyes when you tell me that im pretty  
“i never knew a mind could be so dark” well i, i have never known a mind so light flower petal eyelashes flower garden you growth sprouting from your palms
the white of my body more snow than skin ice cold to the touch i know you think i’ll thaw   this ice age has no end my fire stopped burning
do you remember the fireworks back then when we hid behind purple walls praying they wouldn’t see the clouds of lavender smoke that our passion
MAN I Sure Can Pick Em' ... !!!!!! These ... CONFUSED Women ... It's Like I'm DRAWN Somewhat Forlorn ... Like A King That's PINNED On An Old Chess Board ... THIS ONE Was TALL ... Waistline Small ...
i fell into you- i wasn’t quite ready but we were smoking cigarettes Under the stars behind my car and your smile said,
you left before i got better you left before i could make things right you left before things could get really good and i cant blame you for getting tired of waiting
i drink to forget so many things i drink to forget what you look like what he looks like what the inside of his car looked like
i press the blade to my skin i breathe into my lungs out of my lungs when does the pain of your world falling apart begin to end?
i am sorry i let you  stain your hands  in my dark places i am sorry i watched you ignore the orange signs “danger ahead”
i took my life in my own hands and i decided to resuscitate myself  i folded my hand over the other and beat down on my chest i forced air into my lungs
full disclosure i think about you more often then i would like to i think about you when i see little things certain flowers remind me of your smile
you have a million suitors  anyone who meets you becomes entranced by your beauty the better men try to look a little deeper
i want to write about happy things so i find myself thinking of your lips i find myself hoping that tonight i’ll finally get to kiss you- at least in my dreams
you weren’t the one and that pill is sharper than the edge of the gold and black knife you gave me over a year ago. you weren’t the one
tell me who broke your heart i am a master at stitching up wounds a master at emotional first aid let me heal you with hopeful words and kept promises
no matter how much bleach i use the blood stains won’t go away i’m scrubbing and scrubbing the floorboards the wood turned cherry  
I’m ripping my brain out Piece by piece Cutting it into little squares I’ll serve you our memories On a silver fucking tray I’ll feed them to you,
i can drown myself  in alcohol it never really helps at all no matter how much shit i inhale through my nose
Younger then, i remember not understanding why people would want to escape their bodies.
if we want to talk about being hard to love that definition begins with me anxiety  insecurity paranoia chewing me up, throwing me out
you said you were taxing to love as if that could ever be true loving you is like loving christmas lights loving you is like breathing 
shackles and chains and being tied up in you wrists glowing crimson like the sunset on an ocean of razor blades, the ones you dropped in there before i began to swim
typewriters and rainbows and there isn’t any rain here now poetry and books and your hand finding mine on the drive home street light shooting stars
This magical bee- doesn't sting it is soothing, pacific and lights upon my eyes with fuzzy feet turning my tears to honey thus sweetening my bitter pain. He brings other bees,
So What Does LOVE REALLY Mean To You .... ??? Your Lovers' Touch Or The Things They DO .... ??? That Make You FEEL Your Love Is REAL ... ?!?
Why did you invite her The night before our last Why did you invite her I had a whole night planned Why did you invite her I was going to take you to the moon Why did you invite her
I miss the quiet When my brain wasn't on fire and I was still a person My heart is open so you tie it Cutting of the circulation to every nerve inside of my body  
You're laying bricks on my chest I'm wearing them like a bulletproof vest I'm trying to breathe but my lungs feel like concrete My heart rate drops and there's barely a heartbeat
I'm afraid of my future without you in it I think of you going back I hate that my mind plays tricks like that It's an obsession I think about you and him 24/7 Does she love me? Was I an out?

Sickened I find myself Unsettled By who I swore I would never become She would never Hurt me Not like that I tell them Bruises Internal
I don’t know How to fight With you Like you want me to My apathy Exhausts Even you I make an effort To care About something But You See through Me
It is impossible to say what she is like ​­ as she is incomparable to most earthly things She's not a wildflower, ​­ she is a whole meadow A secret kept by the forest ​­
If it hurts, at least I know what I feel is real So goddamn masochistic Let it hurt, I think Just let it hurt I'd prefer the pain she inflicts over letting go I can't imagine a future she’s not a part of
I remember the first poem I ever wrote about you ​­ ​­          how at first I had no intention to share it with you I'd never written anyone a poem -- ​­          at least not that I'd shared with them
I think about a lot of things when I stare into space, But when asked, those things immediately fly out of my head Then I remember them later and think ​­           Thank God I didn't say that
I sometimes believe that someday You will wake up ​­           Next to me And wonder how and why ​­           you settled for what you see I fear my pretty words ​­
Insecure, she says I look at her across the table and think ​­           you're perfect I have a vendetta against ​­           whoever made her feel less than just that She deserves more than
You. It always comes back to you. You say you know you will hurt meBut you don't want to. I am terrified, so fucking scared. The thought makes my heart pound,my ears ring,my mouth dry.
It used to be  just you and me. There was no other way  that we could see,  til you dropped a bomb You went on you're way.

Grounding me, similar to the acts of a ship’s anchor You are my stability. Anxiously waiting to hit land,  We met,  like wave greeting beach
I think the worse thing is imagining what I feel for you right now isn't what they call love, True Love. It's an inflamed obsession, more temporary, something that'll fade overtime.
I am not going to write about you. I am not going to write about him. I am not going to write about it. I am not going to write about me. I want to write about the world. I want to write about changes.
Can we take a moment to just stop? Just stop. Stop and think. Think about people. The people in your life. How your life is with those people in them. How your life is without those people in them. 
So baby tell me what's up. Why are things getting rough. When I try to text or call you, ya' never pick up. It's such a shame, I gotta take the blame. You only think that love is a silly little game.
I don't want to find love. I just want to be free. I only care about the people who believe in me. It's hard to find a truelove out there. Sometimes, it just ain't there.
Love to be longed for, thinking it existed no more.    He builds up my hopes, then tears down my dreams.   Never knowing how much, to me, he really means.  
i thought i did something that made you mad made you hate the way i blink or hate the way i shiver when it’s cold outside i thought i did something that just
Europa, Io, and Semele  Three took part in a marriage disassembly.  Zeus played his wife like a chess piece.  He visited clubs, went downtown, and attended rancid parties.
I sit here thinking about tomorrows,And all the evenings I'll be asleep.I'll sit and watch the stars go be,Sitting here alone with me.
Have a unique beauty about them.One can lose themselves simply looking,let alone swimming, perhaps the mind itself islost imagining what it be like to swim in.
if i was her boyfriend i’d invite her to stay the night at my house if she likes, she would say “yes!”, we’d grab snacks i would nervously rest my head on her shoulder o why did I wear a dress?
Dance with me down the path of life Beautiful and tragic, I know there will be strife I don’t know how long we’ll last, maybe a song or two
Papers stuffed neatly into their respective folders,            Textbook clenched tightly against my side, I turn to face the dawn.             My mother stands against the light.
Te amo... The words meaning I love you, What is the meaning I love you? To some people it is a chemical in the head that shows attraction to a man or woman,
Wear my poetry.On your skin.Recite parts of me. On your stretch marks.Carry my sensuality.On your tongue. Speak. Only about us.
What is love? What is trust? What is pain?  What if love is trust, and trust is pain.    In order to love , you have to trust.   Trust that it is love and not lust.
As I fall,    I wonder if there is anyone who will catch me, love me, make me feel like I’m wanted Sometimes I ask myself, “damn am I haunted?”    Because it’s like a chain reaction… domino effect
I live in a world where everybody lies I live in a world where if you do anything you get despised I live in a world where I do everything alone And I've made it this far so look how fast I've grown  
I just stood there Almost paralyzed by your beauty  Yet, Letting your hurtful words cut me so deep I started to bleed from my wrist My blood was as red as her matte lipstick 
He sits so close, but the silence turns the inches into miles and   every slight noise causes an avalanche in my chest   as I wait for him to say something. Anxious Reticence.  I have changed so much. 
Story time From the past to the present From the present to the future From the future and beyond As a kid I developed trust issues Because of what my parents did My parents created a ruse
Heart Breaking Tear Inducing My world stopped when you left Sleepless Nights Numb Feelings I couldn’t pick myself back up I wanted to forget I wanted to stop existing All together
Sitting next to my peers, Who have consistently filled my eyes with tears, Is a painful exposition into the realm of self-hate. I’m constantly thinking: “I deserve this, right?”
I’ve always thought of heartbreak As something from failing romances, But I am learning with such a high stake: Heartbreak does not discriminate against acquaintances.
Moving On   My dear, Your scent still lingers on my clothing so on lonely days I make sure to breathe you in, zip you up and pull you close.
you really could be delectable but… i can’t take you home you’re too much i wish you were less
What have I done? He is restless without my touch. He needs constant reassurance. Is there no faith that I can give him? I have done no wrong. No reason t thing of another. Stress eats me whole.
sixteen Lips on lips, never felt more sure, that I'd give myself up and make me your own. The sunlight could not compare to the glistening specks of hazel;
It’s been over 2 years since I’ve seen you And I still get chills whenever I think about the way your hands grazed my thighs I feel blinded by the disappointment in myself for not letting you in
You were the breath of fresh air That I didn’t know I needed Until we met I have been so used to suffocating That I forgot what it felt like to breathe
A new face won’t erase the scars an old face created Needing sedation after seeing your fingers on the trigger You can’t put a bandaid over a bullet wound and expect to heal
I haven’t been sleeping well Tossing and turning Hurting most when I close my eyes And see your face taunting me Haunting me like a ghost
A Cat and a Change   Constant scrutiny and miscommunication. The silent critic made life unbearable. Home was ripped away again,
You wake up angry and leave me Hangin Sayin "I love you" to your back,   Wishin I could retreat Back to bed Into myself.   You don't mean it you're just angry At yourself
Once upon a time there was a sad little girlwho sat at the swings alonewaiting for someone to occupy the empty swing next to herso they'd swing togetherand she'd feel a little less lonely
A breth of fresh air never tasted so sour, I bear the heaviness of regret on my shoulders, Again with your games of deciet and lies, Your words cascading down the mountainside, 
A breth of fresh air never tasted so sour, I bear the heaviness of regret on my shoulders, Again with your games of deciet and lies, Your words cascading down the mountainside, 
Strong arms and even stronger abs  A smile that could make the sun himself so drab  Eyes so piercing that they gaze into my soul  This was my idea of ‘boyfriend goals’ Then college comes 
Entering a relationship at a young age  can feel like starting a new page. Rushing something that is special can cause it to not be sentimental. 
There’s no greater joy than to be in love First love, that is He took me so high, we soared miles above There was no greater comfort than in his kiss  
finally found someone who makes me happy, so why cant mom just be happy for me  she doesnt even know him and she chooses to hate is there something im not seeing 
how do you tell someone something so crazy that you cant see the light at the end of the tunnel that youre an angel thats  just been begging to go home how do you tell someone something so personal
I'm breaking heart sitting here everyday thinking i should man up and tell you I'm breaking my own heart letting occupy my thoughts the better part of the day I'm breaking my heart
Baby, why can’t you make up your mind? It’s killing me and wasting time You come over and make me feel wanted The next day you’re gone, now I’m haunted
A feeling so brand new, But as I saw it in my rear view mirror, The image became crystal clear. The words that echo through my mind
You love have brought along  new ways in which I view myself. I was once selfish and yearning for acceptance but now I know I am not  the only one who matters.   You make me selfless. 
It is bittersweet. I miss taking you to eat and I miss rubbing on your feet. I miss having someone to trust and to be vulnerable with and to lust after.. You'd eat my broccoli and I'd eat your crust.
I was probably too excited to meet you. I've sat on this bench for the past two hours, here, just daydreaming and secretly hoping you'd be early too. I met loads of people. One lady
Guilt is what I feel everytime I doubt your capability to love me wholly.  
The pain he leaves you with is not your identity. You are not what he said you are and “crazy”,
You sap my life of joy, Rival, With those words of doubt. I love and you can't, Rival And drive affections out.
All I feel is negativity. I love to go to school. Life out of school is too much to handle. I love Him. He is sweet and kind deep down. But, he is broken and lost. I am lost. I feel like the walls of my life are closing in on me.
You can’t walk into a relationship with expectations for the future. When you find a man, let him stand, let him stand alone Don't drag him down to get your feet off the ground
My love, you are my everything and my nothing at all; you are my dream and my nightmare; you may be my happiness and yet the cause of my depression. You are my never-ending purgatory:
In your heart's native tongue tell me you love me So that I am forced to learn the language of your heart
Waxy lips, Purple ‘n thick Rear view, A devious kick Sing-song giggles, A soft purse Stomach churning, A biological curse   “How do I look baby?” “Pretty mom,” I say
It’s the worthwhile fight I trek through, Knowing that at the end I’ll be next to you. The longing wait, filled with sacred conversations, A lovingness with hints of preservation,
I want you to tell me again, because I couldn't say what I wanted too. I need you to tell me again, because I wanted to say what you expected me too. Please, just tell me again,
Your flame-seared name... It burns... When I learned of you, Dear Flame, The games you play, The hearts you slay, When I found this out All thoughts of you Just went away
I am walking through a sea. Not of wind nor of waves, but of souls, True individuals with names.   Aren’t we all that will pass, From this big empty rock mass? In the end,
There's nothing so much that scares me more, Than the soft and prickly things that start small, In the cracks of humanity, growing like sponges,
“We need to talk.”   White bay windows overlook the block. We always closed the blinds up here. Keeps the neighbors from shock.
There was once a time I could look at your face, let myself stand there, when I knew what you did I was silent then, And then I wasn't, not anymore And when I opened my mouth you asked me,
As my mind says Stop My legs carry me far away from the people I love I am afraid to lose them Yet I grow smaller everyday why?  
I’m sitting you down here today because we need to talk. You know what? I take that back. I need to talk. You need to listen.
I was wrong; I didn't fall in love with you. I jumped.   ~awatr
Fights begin and end, But what is a world worth living Where there is no one there to start them?   Not just because there will be no fights,
Benign snowfall acts as a reminder, Of the months that have elapsed; Falling softly, directed by the breeze, And tender in its tracks. A year before it became a symbol - a mascot of two hearts:
It all begins with a simple smile,and little giggles that draws their attention.They wonder and explore to find something vile,nothing appears so they start to question. The digital signs shows their devotionin happy emojis that tell their emotion
You have no idea how much I love to look in your eyes Your eyes tell me all I need to know as all the wisdom in the universe lies within it  I could spend eternity  For the small space between our eyes is my refuge 
You painted me out to be desperate  But theres a difference between desperation and being hopeful  I waited for you because I was hopeful not desperate    I was hopeful for us but I didn’t need us to workout
cOaStEr   a lost girl, unwanted in a world of wanting he’s. the. ONE. that made me fall in love to not see him smile

I open my mind's lid like the drawer of a filing cabinet. It is the place where thoughts, dreams, and memories thrive. Letters of knowledge organized just like books in a library.
I see his face and her face, I see all the rest But do you not see the hole in my chest?   I hear his voice and her voice, I hear theirs too But darling, where's your voice? I only want you.  
A bird who loves his cage and his view of the tree Is still a bird in captivity The loveliest of cells still has the power to derange   I wanted so desperately to be free The tempting breezes to leave me be
Dandelions sure do look like flowers But they're weeds that wilt in just a few hours To my untrained eye, it looked like a real dollar bill But a distorted George screamed "Counterfeit" and still
                                   Dear strangers   “Excuse me,Which way to  x street?” I ask pass-by pedestrians ,politely, He/She ignores completely,even– No cast of a cold eye.  
You feel like you've found your light You feel like the darkness surrounding you is dimming down You finally have a vision in sight, You suddenly feel like you are not going to drown.   You turns Me into We
this letter is me saying goodbye. this letter is everything i couldn't say when you were in my room that night when i asked you to stop to leave me alone and you persisted in touching me
when you say my name, you say it like a poem you will never write.babylon boy, when i whisper your name in the pale moonlight,
I pushed you away thinking you would fade away but you didn’t… I thought I didn’t want to remain with you, almost avoided you but nothing was true… I wanted to explore dating guys to find out all the lies
  Sheet She is nothing. Just a black sheet before your eyes. But out of this apocalyptic world, a special set of eyes see more.
I see love all around me young kisses placed on heads  cheeks and lips It reminds me of the love  that pecks my temple even as something slips
why do you expect me to be okay? to be okay with your actions, to be okay with what you say i'm not why do you expect me to forget? the words you told me, the words you said i can't
It never works, And I'm an idiot for trying. I feel like you've unpopped the corks, 'Cause I'm suddenly crying.
Asexual is not a lie We don’t want attention No one simply needs a good fuck We are people too   According to biology sex is a necessity We disagree Sex is a pleasure But not for me
Your hands are wrapped, Entangled in mine. Like the blue Flowers Apart of the vines.   Your lips are pressed  Against my rosey Cheeks, Causing my legs, To become mildly weak.  
Because I am a nice person,I will mother and worry over you.Because I am a nice person,I will let you have your way.Because I am a nice person,I will let it slide.Because I am a nice person,
To seal the dealOur little fingers lockTangling like the boondocksThe promise now annealed  
Men are like fast food. I don't actually hate fast food, But I hate what it does to me. 
I want you. I don't tell you but I think it every day. I want you. Putting emphasis on every word I say it three times over.  I want to kiss you unil are lips are raw and there is no emotion left to be shared. 
And then three years later and look at us now.. We were talking about marriage & having some kids in the house. Man nothing ruins a relationship quicker than doubt. Used to say you were so confident in what we had.
They say, don’t kiss and tell, They say, don’t tell after we kiss, Shaken inside, coz I can’t miss, every taste of the feel. Maybe I’m crazy, Maybe I’m lazy,
It’s been the dry season 
I was white bread, sticking to the roof of his mouth:He was all bones and warm brown skinWe leaned into each other,
If you are in a relationship Rule number one is don’t stay silent about your issues Rule two, speak your mind and if you assume something talk and fix that problem
Breathe, breathe One, two, three I am a happy daughter Who loves her mother Not a hint of loathing to be found Exhale, exhale I mustn't tell lies Enjoy the way the breeze feels nice 
Sitting in a black hole Surrounded by own warmth A single light  That may or may not be mine A distraction An object Hundreds of objects Various different kinds  Which should I choose
The air filled with sounds of chatter and late night melodies, as the dj synthesized Patrons shared stories swayed to the beat Drinks of all sizes and varieties
I'm tired of the lies AND misconception Long to be held, seeking attention Covering up my discontentment I've ran out of makeup and forgotten how
I thought about this poem and what to throw under the bus I realized that the only thing on my mind, was to talk about us.   When I think of the beginning of the end My hands shake, my breath shakes, my head shakes
I thought about this poem and what to throw under the bus I realized that the only thing on my mind, was to talk about us.   When I think of the beginning of the end My hands shake, my breath shakes, my head shakes
the winds blow through the leaves of the trees as words drift from ears to ears of those who want to hear Creator speaks in many voices through many people selectively we chose
You taught me to be kind You taught me to be great You taught me to take time  You taught me to appreciate  You taught me my love for trees You taught me my love for photos You taught me my love for bees You taught me my love for Coco  You taught

I felt it a few times as a child, being tickled, laying next to you whilst you slept - watching your beautiful face, peaceful. Another time  we went picking for daffodils and blueberries.
Everyone else seems to be used to this They've all been through here This beautiful water Many my age have practically sailed Through this whole ocean by now I know I'm behind
I hate that my heart yearns for you It will look for in the hallways of our overcrowded school It wants to give itself to you again Let you break me
As the heat of day is flung into evening's dusky sky, I, beneath straw-brimmed hat glance askance at you, reach for your hand, point to soaring pelicans and sea birds as they pass over palms, masts,
I never saw a facethat I Saw as much as yours that golden part it sent me into such a spiral wringing together hands that invariably aimed to only touch yours;
On cold nights like these Where I’m happy with People in my lifeAnd without you in sight I can’t help but wonder How did you turn out
Stare into the outside Neon lights and street signs She holds me It’s gonna be alright She said, but she fades Moonlight turns away
Why assume I am always busy with work? Why assume you are bothering me? Why are you acting like everything is bright ignoring the darkness? Why can’t you confess you suck at communication?
“Sleepless nights abound Sleepless night above Sleepless nights are found With a lack of love”
"All this time I thought, all this time I thought things could be fixed, like that time I broke the door open with my fist. Left a hole in the wood, splinters on my skin, was bleeding from the knuckles, felt the pain set in.
I don't want to leave you I don't want you to never see me again I know what to do Color in the lines Darken the edges Don't let me fade away
You used to be my comforter, Now you are my tormentor.   You used to be my guardian, Now you are my warden.   You used to be my protector, Now all you do is hover.  
With careful cadence, ink steps on pages And rhythmically, words stride to our minds. They serve all the troubled of the ages,
With careful cadence, ink steps on pages And rhythmically, words stride to our minds. They serve all the troubled of the ages,
Life is tough when you fall so easy, you never see it coming Smiles make you melt, words shatter dreams of the lonely It's tough when he only looks at you, you fall faster
I can feel her force like a tsunami. Her crashing, all-consuming presence around me; Leaving me breathless and my lungs aching for air... I drown in her.
It takes a minute for the Sun to move From North to South, and Back up again to marvel in his splendor Of the motion, she grew tired   Low bronze and crisp lavender fork through her eyes
Lunae Lumen, moonlight so bright I forget I’m in the dark The night is cold and empty, a mirror of how I felt After I hurt you.
You are there beginning through end You encompass us before we are even given a soul You shout at the thought of the fears we do send
We met one night You made me feel alive.  Your eyes pulled me in and your lips collided with mine.  Love is a fragile word, and I feel it in me.  You say I'm too young
Personally, I've always liked sunsets more than sunrises. Call me sadistic, but I've always found endings more beautiful than beginnings, if for no other reason than to watch how the universe ties up the strings.
feelings we disect, fail to digest. we're both so depressed. emotions repressed; show reason less. we scream and we shout; dont know what about. I saved this for us. you stressed me out.
Wish, not I, to dedicate a sonnet
People don't see the importance of self-tax Instead, they see anyone and become lax They don't pay attention to the signs you need They become one with the Devil's creed   You see this happen everyday
As I make my journey goals ahead, pushing through, I take the time to reflect, I take the time to make some sense of all that I have become.   What has brought me here
I knew it when she touched your shoulder And I Walked into the public bathroom alone And the distinct smell of Urine and nail polish remover filled Me with a sense of urgency to Finish quickly
You're a good song title You're nothing near full A misconception of the mind There's something missing in your kind
Where do I begin? How do you tell a tale so weathered yet so fresh? So foreign yet familiar. Your palm that once warmed my thin fingers
Anterior View of a Fragile Abdomen By Emma Roy Inspired by Monica Ong documentary poetry “Silent Anatomies” ***Please note the media attached is the original version of the poem
you can be as  kind & as loving  as you want.    but  i still won't believe that  i deserve you. i'll  disappoint you.   suck the light
how funny it is that after three days of lying next to someone, sharing secrets, matching heartbeats, and pressing lips together, one can fall in the first stages of what may very well shape up to be love.
I hope your husband treats you better than your mom's boyfriend treated her. I'm sorry I mentioned their violence when we fought- a bad time to bring it up but I guess I knew we were through.
I've been broken and abused Ripped apart and misused But yet, somehow, I still function. I've found fields of sorrows And hopeless tomorrows Yet I still yearn to feel something  
it’s funny i don’t remember mistaking i love you for i want you  
I have these two friends... In school, they both have goals and dream. Both got pregnant at eighteen. Sweet girls that fell victim to all of the lies- Of “Love” they thought they had from other “Nice Guys.”
To be happy in loves eyes  Is as simple as a couple pretty lies  To care less what is true  Just as long as I'm with you    
I am slowly stepping instead of falling for her. I never learned how to love so instantly. This feeling is far from what I prefer.   She is like the seasons of winter and summer,
I love the way you smile at me. I love the way you kiss me. I love the way you hold me close. I love the way whisper in my ear. but... I hate the way you lie to me.
We fit together like raisins and water As if by some minor miracle we could turn out to be what we once were Like bleach to amonia We are volatile Even if we have the same dream It only lasts for a little while
no amount of time can save my baby sleeps past ten on the floor of our new cave she calls this hole a den
another relationship another breakup today, our one month anniversary  she breaks up with me after isolating herself for days blaming me not even trying to fix things
flowers need more than water to grow maybe that’s why I run away at the sight of them blooming I can’t even remember to water them once a day how can I sustain them for years?  
be someone extra special rise me rise my energy make me high   it might be wild desire my body on fire just a dream   maybe I need new ideas
Last night someone asked me, "Are you not interested in someone right now? Or even have someone to flirt with?" "Theres no one right now." I answered. They were dubious when they asked,
Let's be lonely together We'll sit by the fire and you might call me a liar Cause I stole some Monopoly money while you turned your back Or I stole some of your food and had a light snack
Imagine waking up early and feeling all happy Then by nine pm, you've got all snappy The girl you loved is now a whore And you're one wrong word from a hole in the wall
Something about this generation irks me. And it's how we use the word love. It's used Loosely, without passion or meaning. And I was one who did the same until I met Him.
I could never figure out love, But I could put the letters on a page. Letters smacked on a page. If I looked at it sideways, it kinda looked like him. Maybe this was it?
They knew they should be happyBut it had lost its spark.The light of the relationshipHad faded into dark.They didn’t want to tell h
Miscommunication, miscommunication leads to bad reactions. Bad reactions, bad reactions lead to bad attitude. Bad attitude, bad attitude leads to anger. Anger,  anger leads to silence.
Oh look how the rose withers. Oh look how the petals fall. With time it begins to shrivel, Till time fine’ly makes its call.  
A real man will know your body is sacred His desires are more than fruit from a tempress' garden  He will be pactient He will not try to decieve If he is a man Then he will only see you
Speak softly into the chambers of my heart. Never let go as you kindle me like a fire on a frigidly cold winter night.   Touching your raven black hair, running my fingers through like a comb.
The first time you asked for a hug I flinched. It was because of you. But it was not. It was all about me. My head was playing a horror movie.
When I told my friend that I liked a boy she was ecstatic. She gushed. She squealed. She urged me forward. When I told my friend he asked me out she screamed. She laughed. She yelled. She asked me when we were going out.
Sticky sweet jolly rancher kisses I realize that I´m going to miss this  We say our goodbyes and I pull away But something really urged me to stay Every rib in my chest breathes in for a smile
my heart aches at the knowledge that i’ve loved you for forever but forever is coming to an end.
He tasted like mangosi couldn't place it until the next daywhen his lips were no longe
Love, just like chocolate Comes in different forms Sometimes it's sweet Sometimes bitter At times, there are nuts involved
i feel tired at 7:30 (p.m) sometimes i go to bed that early sometimes i stay up to a grand 8:30 exhausted of putting my feelings into jokes
metronome heart allegro to affrettando pump   hair rises like furtive ballerinas on strident piano keys  
dear crush can you hear that? the sound of my heart breaking? breaking like claps each syllable you spoke to someone else
I'm Lost My heart has encountered it's own holocaust   Love with all you've got, they said Only to unpull all my thread
Rooms capture nothing Without wallpaper Coverless books Dangle bare Eroding the roots Of cotton-bound truths
Glassy eyed vixen. I stare into thy eyes. Sparkling like a wildfire; Such feelings I can't deny.   Long black silky hair Oh I did not dare touch. But my thoughts are impure;
I am among the unseen And you are the light that stands before me. As I close my eyes to sense it, But it never reaches me. I am among the unheard And you are the voice that echoes so faintly.
This little bottle of chardonnay; My escape, my stimulation.  And you My every motivation, unending infatuation.   Each glass with every momentous sip The taste of grapes dance on the edge of my tongue,
Time waits for no one And I stand still, frozen, Unable to keep up. I chase and chase, Yet the seconds speed up. Round and round, the seconds speed up. Minute by minute, the distance widens.
You forsake me for another And leave me cold and lonely. You torture me with your eyes, They greet me yet they ignore me. You taunt me with your smile, It sends comfort but mocks me.
When sunlight becomes the dark, I pray that you are the path That illuminates my heart.   When sunlight becomes the night, You are the shield I run to Behind your glorious sight.  
When you smile your smile It takes me away from this reality. And when I see those eyes, I'm suspended in a life-like fantasy.   Speak out a fresh breath of air; Orchestrate a conversation for me
We've been through ups and downs (The good, the bad, the smiles and frowns), But I ain't giving up on us. So believe in me, this is more than lust. It's you or bust 'cause YOU is a must!
I didn't mean to lead you astray; I'm weak, as weak as anyone or anything can humanly be. But the passion that melts me inside is for you. I lay besides an emptiness that is only meant to be occupied by you,
Even though you tore my heart in two I'm still in love with you. And if one day I can love someone else, I'll have forgiven you And I've learned to respect myself.   When I finally learn to let this go
Hello. I’m Christian. We’ve talked a little bit over text and i didn't think much of it, But standing here in front of you. Suddenly my breath is gone
"Are you leaving?" she said. I informed that im to return soon. Her stare blanketed in dis-array, I inquired if something was needed. "Can you leave my heart on the table until you get back?"
Looking out the Window I see my slight reflection, notice my brown complexion and see all the weathers pondering whether I should wear that red sweater.
To feel The love That eats The soul That loves Thy sweetness So!
When we part for the day, I sit and I say, "I love you, I love you, I love you." I hide from your face, I whisper your name, And I love you, I love you, I love you. 
Luscious lips Long locks Liberating legs She was He was They were
A minuscule moment in a gargantuan globe, Not significant at all,  But the day my baby passed away,  I swear I saw the heavens fall.
"Where did the connection go?" He asks as he sits on his phone, his body language screams, "Engrossed in a world that's not his own."
The sort of familiar feeling of falling  Envelops me like it's always meant to  An ocean that only goes down Devoid of light and air and feeling  I find myself reaching (The surface is miles away)
It all seems like a nightmare My eyes can’t even meet your stare They burn and sting with the power of a thousand bees Lord knows I’ve cried more than the seas
We didn’t fall in love I just can’t stop thinking bout you No we’re not meant to be But everyone you’re with reminds you of me
tell me that you want a tree, an Apple Tree. the fruit you desire, it will produce but, if you, plant it first. the tree will give you many years but, if you, will give it drink.
The closer you come the more I crack   you tell me you love me when I know it's a lie   you hug me the hardest tonight because I know is good bye   I wish it had never started
How are you so stupid, so naive? You brought this on yourself. Walked in a locked room with no keys. Don't bother blaming anyone else, Don't cry, beg, or plead. How do you expect to get out?
drawn to each other We ignore each other we talk all day  we’re stuck in silence  smiles, laughs, bliss frowns, cries, sadness our first kiss our last fight
I've outgrown my church shoes And all my pencils are dull   The world stops spinning when we are alone. Away from work, away from home.  
I'm still trying to catch up on all the hours of sleep that are lost with you.
Dear you who I don’t know what to call anymore,   In between frozen touches and blank stares I knew it all along, hidden in your cryptic answers. Chaste messages. I figured It can’t be so bad.  
Dear K, Intoxicated were we, but intoxicating was your kiss, the night we first expressed ourselves to each other.  Wrapped in your sweet embrace, unaware of future regret.   
To Them, Today I looked at you through a glass dome I watched the tears fall from your cheeks Your eyes creased, cheeks growing red  Your voice cracked in the middle of your sentence
Dear Untouchable,   Proven divine, your soul glows like gold under glistening sunlight; its own halo that just doesn’t happen to gleam right.
Dear Mr. Almost PerfectYou're a dork, but that's one of the things I love about you.Warm breath colliding with mine you never make me feel uncomfortable.What I see as flaws in myself you wrap up and make beautiful
It’s been a few months now and I don’t know why I am writing about you. It feels like an obligation, but what will this really do?  
Your faceThe sharpness of itTypical strange beautyClear as the water stillOver the river on the hill
He has many flaws, and i know that, but he's him, and i love him. He makes me happy inside and out,  The kind of happy you see in childrens books. I never do this you know, but he's different, oh so different.
You put a hole in my heart from the tip of that burning cigar in your mouth.
My words are lost tonight. They are in your mouth, Because you always seem to win the arguments.
You can either trick her into thinking your special Or You can threaten to leave her Which one would you rather kill her with?
You are the blood in my veins,  The only way I would let us part,  Is if I cut my skin and let you out.
You had me fooled to think that you were right about everything.  But no you were trying to convince me to your side. Or at least the side you thought was right.  We are all wrong in different ways.
Hey Samantha I must say, I'm glad I met you I am grateful to have been introduced By a close friend, and it is amazing, the spark it produced Though you're a bit far, I feel so close
I see it in the shadows,  behind me and below. It follows me everywhere,  everywhere I go.  This burden that I carry,  from every day to day,  May one day prove worthy, 
Everytime we argue, we create a storm. You say things you don't mean- please don't make a scene. Those vulgar words you say, I wish they could be unheard. And as we separate- the clouds they turn grey.  
We are Lost when we're together but I'll follow you forever, 'Cause 'together' is the nicest place to be; if this world should end in flame, we'll burn together all the same, 'Cause I don't need anyone else to be with me.
I need you and you need me We give, we take, We show, we see We laugh, we cry We live, we die, Together Half of enough
You said " everything isnt meant for you to understand" But I understand that you will never be MY man I dont think  you know what you did to me You made me believe that i was going to be your everything
Honestly, I don't think you exist. You're like a unicorn with your beauty abundance, majestic prescence, magical countenance - I'm not really good at this. I,
Dear D, You’re my worst enemyWho is always there with me, From the moment I awakeTo the thoughts that I make.
someday a boy will break your heart in two consider this a forewarning to you   his eyes brilliant baby blue will consume you entirely
You take it all, my love is simply yours to take you frightened me, stripping me bare heed not, for I am not freed from this heartbreak "But I love you, it's true" you swear.  
Do you think about me the way I do about you? Do you reminisce about the past we once shared? I await the day when I can hold your hand again and smile because of our love Do you think about me, too?  
I know you don’t understand this, but my heart thinks about you literally every second when I’m not talking with you.   Don’t worry, my heart is thinking of nothing but you when talking with you too.
salut, mon petit! that's how i greet you since we're both french minors and we're both multi-ethnic and we grew up in the same hometown and we were born 11 days apart
dear lover, there are pieces of myself that simply belong to you. when you leave, you take, & you fill me up with lies in exchange for what you drained of me. this is the best way manipulative men will get me to stay.   
Dear Hurricane Victor,   A hailstorm commenced when I agreed to be yours And you, mine… I often wonder if it was a sign.  
Sometimes you stay in a relationship because it’s easier,you suck up the misery and deal with him even if it’s sleazier. You don’t realize that boys change your life, even when you know that they won’t step up and make you their wife. They control
Dear lost lover,   I miss you in the morning. My coffee doesn’t taste right without the hint of your laugh that you used to add to it. The birds don’t sound as good as they used to without
The ring Oh how I loved that ring... Shining oh how it shined... Finally, the man I loved would be mine.
Dear Sasha,   Today I walked along the edge of the harbor In Medemblik, the Netherlands, With my grandmother's arm in mine. I noticed a boat among the others That looked like nothing extraordinary
Fire was he  He was the one who scared  He was the one who burned  But he also was the one who warmed  You were saying you were fine  Acting all alright  Because you loved him way too much to leave him
Some days  I grow stronger and say ”I don’t need him” other days i grow weak  and wish to talk to him a monster of pure anger wants to somehow destroy him
I cry in the middle of the night when you're sleepMy face wet with lonely, misunderstood, broken tearsAlthough you don't get the one you fell in love withyou don't get me deep insideI do express myself thoroughly you just don't understand my expre
    wrap me in your love again. blanket plush, velvet crushed. make me feel again. misery, over and over.
Take my hand Out of here we can run Open doors and chances   Let go and walk away And steal what's not yours
You said, you said that we'd last but now the flag flies half-mast You said, you said this was true, so real so how is it you cease to feel You said, you said, don't give up yet whose eyes look away so abrupt
  I wanna meet ya mother. And I wanna tell her how much I loved ya.
You are the closest image of home I have ever encountered. I buried my secrets into your crumbling foundation. My truths filled the holes of your cracking backbone. You loved it; more so you needed it to survive.
I need closure.   Set some things straight.   I was insecure and vulnerable, and no, I don't want to go on a date.   Why do you taunt me?    Stupid, silly, fate.  
I am graduating this year and you won't see it. I will walk down that aisle, I will accept my degree I will take a step forward and then I will take a step down. I will bow to the past and face forward to my future,
Last night of October—we lay on the floorWarmly aligned from our shoulders to hipsBy the orange soda fizz of a loud movie scoreLast night of October—we lay on the floorIn the dusty blue attic beneath the trapdoor
I have dreamed of it, A warm, tender embrace with a lover I cannot see. Sweet whispers  flow from his mouth like honey, filling my soul with joy beyond measure.
Raspberry juice seeps through her teeth and drips out of the corner of her faked-smile. Her lips are stained by blackberries, each one delicately plucked at the exact moment she was least ready for it.  
I revel in the gloom: Bright choosing to be dim Light barely reaching shelves Hiding pulp and leather Those curiosities of old man Father Time
  I thought I knew you, The you sitting there, With an eager smile, You would take to a chair. A chair beside me,
Next month will be a year since we been broken up. But every time I look at you old feelings get woken up. I finally have the girlfriend I think I've always wanted. But how can I fully be happy if in my thoughts you've haunted. I'm not saying I wa
I didn’t mean to choose this. I didn’t ask to feel like this. But I do. I want to feel like normal people do, but I realized that I just cannot.
    Long live my Father Who is the wisdom in life's eye Who upon his shoulders rest Who is never willing to die       Long live my Father Who upon a chariot was born
Empty Pages   Writer’s block is like thinking you’ve met a man you could give your all to at the stage of his life when his ego is inflated like the dollar
I love you Yes, I love you immensely but the inevitable is inevitable Everyone gets bored. People like you and me, get bored so easily. The most exciting people to me
I've witnessed your suffering Your deep pain unparalleled Open yourself Love's flower only to wither and die   I've heard your secrets bemoaned Intimate and euphoric Here envelopes you a cave
You look And you see A pleasant home.  The flowers are bright,  The bushes are trimmed,  The shingles are painted, Two wicker chairs are on the porch. One white picket fence guards the path. 
  dear Lover, I played Odile when you wanted Odette-- but Melpomene would agree that the best romances perform as tragedies I think you knew we were the same girl
Dear Matthew, Your eyes tell me they love me, even when your mouth does not. However, I cannot remember a day or night  that your mouth forgot.    Your hands tell me they want me, 
Dear Pain,  There are things that need to be said  but the words always seem to run There are actions that ought to be taken but the rhythm seems undone The tears appears all dried up
One person Made me so happy Yet so dejected At the same time   We used to sit And watch the leaves fall During the most
Dear You,
Once again that my heart shattered Lights went blackout, no more flickered My head went full blank My life I had hang I thought my life doesn't matter
Our bodies are a kaleidoscope, limbs entangled in damp silk, hearts pulsing to the drum of now, yesterday, today, tomorrow.   “You’re so perfect” you breathe, calluses tracing my veins,
I gave you somethingyou probably shouldn’t of receivedI’m weary eyedthinking about how you seemed to lead charming sweet smiledemeanor honest and truthfulwhy did my heart have to be so couthful?
premeditated achievementwarm kisses sporadically laidin a sea of bewilderment between the cotton waves enclose me in your pillowsdeep in the feathery sandour smiles graze the skies
dear boy i almost gave everything to, i am not a glistening bar of solid authentic gold, i am not a crystal clear 50 karat diamond, i am not a smooth pearl that shimmers in the sun.   i am a ruby.
i get scared on the longer days,   dear and you, inquisitive, know the blush…       ...the blushing reason why   i get scared
The truth is, my darling, that time has passed and we have grown. And yes, I do love you. And yes, that has everything to do with this poem. Loving you has everything to do with who we’ve turned into, and who we’ve grown to become.
I try to love you, But I can’t. I try to accept you, But it is impossible.   They’ve told me to caress you, But I only have blades. They’ve told me to take care of you,
I am in love with the way you speak,But more than that,I am in love with the way you think.How your train of thought twists and turns amongst quicksand,How you walk to Jupiter and back,
Tell me what you want,And I promise I won't give it to you.   I know, it's harshI know, it's not what you thoughtI know, I love you  
Look to the line of morality. Your mentality, lost from actuality Where my red hand stands in a land you don’t understand And you try to reprimand me? Listen, I demand!   Perhaps I am reticent, hesitant
Blonde hair, blue eyes, sometimes he makes me ask why, His heart is cold, he likes to act bold, But I love him like Sally loves Jack,
There you are where I could always admire from afar See your light, Its radiant colors Melting into the ocean waters   Here I am
I think of the past. I think of the sensitivity. The moment that the aclcohol touched our lips... I think of promises.   But who did you give the painting to?
 I love you,   That doesn't even begin to cover how much I care for you. I love those mischievous hazel eyes that you flash with all your devil's mind games.  
Liar, liar you broke my heart first you set my flesh afire I gasped as you let go of my hand and watched me burn liar, liar why would you do this?
She’s been living in a white dress, since you got down on one knee. She’s been living in a black house,
I miss the smell of alcohol on your breath, The haze of smoke in the air around us, The half smirk you always have curled up on the left side of your mouth,  
Dear Seniors,  Sometimes instead of putting down your stupid small town That nobody has ever heard about In the depths of Ohio, You should appreciate it.
Dear Seniors,  Sometimes instead of putting down your stupid small town That nobody has ever heard about In the depths of Ohio, You should appreciate it.
Let's start a fire Let the world be wrapped in flames We'll watch the destruction grow As we sit in silence On a gasoline soaked field    Find the beauty  In the illuminated clouds
To Those Who Gave Up on Me:  Sometimes I feel like I'm too young to be over these boys already. Honestly I haven't been in a relationship yet At least not by my terms.
Dear Mom,   It’s dark I can’t see you I can hear you Your voice soothes me I know you didn’t want children But here I am   The wind is on my face So is the ice cream
I'm sorry I'm such a mess and you gotyourself tangled up in this but pleasedon't fucking leave me because thesky and the stars and the moon don'treally make sense without you  
I can't get your fucking taste out of my mouthand you can't get mad at me for the ways I tried to   I kissed him and I kissed anotherbut I think they could tell I whispered your name into their mouths  
dear love when i began, so did you i felt you for the sky for my mother dandelions  and then i grew older i craved to feel you more, differently  i wanted you to grow up

dear my love,   everytime we are apart i wish to relocate closer to your heart.   i love you so very much and i tell you this everyday. still, one day i wish to hold you closer
Even through my thick skin When wits should fit, no quick send Though I won’t miss your shit friends That night, I met my wit’s end Maybe my intent had its rest in The tent I’ve pretended to pitch, in
To the boy who stole my life,   They say sticks and stones may break your bones But my back still aches from the knife I never deserved because all I ever did was
Wanting what you can’t have Enough to drive you crazy Feelings getting stronger And now it’s scary Fear of rejection Show remorse When I ask if you want this When I go for the last kiss
Spring, summer, fall, winter Joy, passion, love, reality Seasons and emotions are one in the same Everybody has a favorite season Everybody has their own reason But the one thing that stays true
I like love in the most innocent of ways, Like a warm hug, And not to be swept under the rug. I don’t like sex, Or kissing,  Or making out.

Because you “love” me. I’m left wanting more? With where we stand, You’re still “never sure.”  Because I love you, I ask for “too much” I make myself your wings. You,

a waltz through the house toes sliding along the kitchen floor giggles drift into the living room   harmony in a routine a smile, a sniffle, a silence comfort in merely existing  
Him and Her.   You shouldn't fix what's not broken, unless your in denial, but I don't want to admit,
Love is a beautiful thing, when done right Love can be amazing, without all the fights You should always be happy, never sad  Never tell your partner things you'll regret, just 'cuz your mad

In unconditional love, I won't make you prove to me, That you will do whatever I need. In unconditional love, I will support you in any way I can, But I may not put your needs over my own.
You are crisp summer grass, the crunch of fallen leaves You are dandelion tufts floating on a spring breeze You are the muffled crunch of winter's icy freeze You are the sun and moon, the mountains and seas
Because I love you, I'm not going to let you go out Friday night; it's for your own safety. Because I love you, I'm going to go through your phone; to make sure nobody is trying to steal you from me.
Because I love you I know that you like your eggs scrambled, Your bacon extra crispy, And your orange juice freshly squeezed in the morning.   Because I love you
Because I love you, I stay strong through our fights. In getting past our hardships, true love takes flight   Because I love you, I can see past a flaw. They make you unique 
I deleted it. Another one gone too. You don't have time for me? Well this what I'mma do. Association is the killer The bleeding heart upon my sleeveI don't want to be remembered I just want to up and leave 
Our first kiss felt like a supernova, explosive and iridescent, scattering my universe with cosmic dust.
The weight of the world, a weight on the shouldershealed with the bonds of the hearts and their holders   Busy the world, the hassle it can bestill standing side by side the holders that see  
Because you love me: you take me to lunch at your least favorite place, and you help me study during your lunch break.  Because you love me:  when it's pouring you throw me your jacket,
Because I Love You, but not really, I will slip my hands into your mind, Your Heart, Your Soul, Your Body, And I will slowly destroy everything that makes you, You.  
  mirror, mirror on the wall who is the fairest of them all? perhaps it is the boy who used to pinch me in preschool thinking hitting girls was what made rugrat boys cool
I don't want to drown in your sea of sadness.I don't want to stand in your rain of madness.  I was a prisoner in your cave of sweet nothings.I was frozen in your winters, in love with your springs. 
What’s mine is yours, What’s yours is mine: Time, Love, Attention. Why? Give and take, Like a cake is baked. The ingredients: Time, Love, Attention. Smile.
Relationships Such a touchy word; Made are many misconceptions Anytime it is heard Most associate it With love between two sexes With lust between two sexes So I will explain it:
Love is fighting Love is arguments and tears Love is uncertainty Love is doubting and fears Love is disagreement Love is pain
Experience teaches many things for when you're shown that diamond ring Mama always told me "love yourself first you are a mirror beware of dirt it's on their hands let them touch and
The bruises and scars I received for sixteen years define me. I am broken and damaged almost beyond repair, my hopeful heart was shattered into a million pieces.
Because I love you, I trust you Because I love you, I don’t look through your phone Because I love you, I don’t follow you when you go out Because I love you, I give you space
I can tell By looking at you This is love You like the Broncos I like the Colts You are outgoing I’m an introvert You have an Xbox I have a Wii But, still, we work perfectly
Here we are, Once again. Through this cycle Of ups and downs.   Here we are, With the misunderstanding, The miscommunications.   Here we are, The back and froth,
A relationship must be like the spring When I am free from feeling winter's breath Which tears up my skin, leaving a burning sting.   A relationship must be like the cherry blossom tree Sturdy and rare 
                                             My eyes rest for a second                      And for that moment it’s there again That grey stitched texture of the back seats
  Not what you can do for me Not to serve my desire But because of what I see Because of what you are Because of what you do
Your braces are like magnets that attract my love.They are the first thing I notice and the last thing I say goodbye to.Your braces are like you.You stabilize people.You keep them from becoming out of hand.Your braces exemptilfy balance,the balanc
I let you in at the beginning, because I love you. I grew to like onions and watching horror movies, because I love you. I lost every friend, every other relationship, because I love you.
Because I love you I still get lost when I look into your eyes. The simple thought of you turns my frown into a smile. Every hug makes me feel warm inside
I have always been a vacant lover.  Communication does not come easy when you're a child from a verbally abusive home.
Because I love you, My words flow freely from my lips Spilling my secrets and sharing my hopes With you, love. Because I love you,
Because I love you I don't press When secrets slip between your eyes Because I love you I wait for you to tell me Because I love you I hold you when you cry Wipe away tears with tissues
Love is just a word until meaning and feelings are brought along with it It’s just a feeling that describes the joy that fills you body However love has a story
he went crossing oceans and climbing mountains but turned around to see she was skipping puddles and picking flowers as blind as she could be 
I love him. I say in my head. Over and over. I love him. Of course I love him. Why wouldn't I love him? There's no one better. I'll never find anyone better. I don't deserve any better.
As I'm lying in bed He'll touch me with gentle fingers, Carefully knitting together the tattered ends of my heart, The places where my soul has been frayed. There will be nights when I think the sun may never rise
If you are a seedlet my love be your water,andyour sun.I know that you are destinedto rise,and I am devotedto your growthbecause,I love you. And I'd wishfor you,to bloom,into a flower.  
Soft words, soft hands brushing back your loose hair strands. Loving kisses to say goodnight two strong arms when things aren't right. Wiping away your tears of pain not restraining you like a ball and chain.
my love for you is beautiful and lyrical and poetic, it is pure and it is natural - it is good and it is real - 
Because I love you You aren't my sunshine Why would you assume I need you to be a better me I'm better off without you I would never say I love you every single way All you do is drag me down
Connections are risks  Sometimes the wrong ones make blood boil and hiss  They can make you feel like you were just one off the list  Even push you to the point of a knife in your wrist  However with care and trust
Life can be tough in ways that we never ask for. We can pretend that we don't wish to have someone next to us when we weep into our sheets at night.  I know I did.  However, I met a woman.
All I could Ever Ask   I want you to succeed  because I love you and I want you to breathe easy because I want you to scale the highest mountains and swim the greatest seas.
There was an eclipse this morning. I watched it. All I could think about was how you plunged me into such a    terrifying and dark place. You look like an angel, but you lash out like a solar flare.
No control, No marks to hide, No taking its toll, No scars inside.   No blackmail,
No control, No marks to hide, No taking its toll, No scars inside.   No blackmail,
A healthy relationship. What is "healthy"? Saying I love you when you get off the phone? A good night and good morning text? A like on instagram? A tagged picture?
Drink from me until there is nothing left. Once my waters were crystaline, so clear in the sunshine. The many secrets you kept, turned water to ice. I became a monster only plotting your demise.
Because I love you,  We should agree on what matters,  And not care about our ideas,  On kings and mad hatters.    Because I love you,  We should speak with grace, And not yell at each other, 
Everything you say starts with, “Because I love you.” But you don’t. You never did. If this was love, you wouldn’t say everything Is always my fault.
I once saw a star In the midnight air shining straight towards me Though it was lovely, it was manipulative Though it was manipulative, I kept wishing Wishing to the star,
i need to be saved but who’s there to help me and with all this sadness i cannot find the key i’ve been trying too hard
Just as a boa constrictor, an unhealthy relationship suffocates those caught within its coil. Smaller and smaller, the world is slowly constricting, Gasping for breath, an eye-opening realization comes to mind.
Loving you was like grasping oil Always treated you like you were royal Only to have you slip out of my fingertips.   Loving you had me inhaling flames Didn't know who to blame
I used to think that love ment vacancy. so i carved out my body, left me hollow and empty. Set up a bed in my rib cage, auctioned off my teeth to  buy a new rug, shed my skin and made it a coat,
When was it that love became a trap A way to keep someone from running away was it true when you said you loved me that I was the most important person to you that no one compared
In a relationship, you can lose yourself.   Society says: You “complete” each other. You’re “inseparable”. Two halves of a whole.
  Because I love you, because I do, Please tell me what love means to you. Make me feel beautiful, make me feel wise, But don’t do it just to be kind.  
Leaf falling down a tree A whole life attached to a native bough Clingstone to freestone, pinnate to palmate, Persistent untill the wind sets it free, Far from crown it goes now Hate's leaf scar on its state
When you can fight freely knowing that you will get through this. When you can play and wrestle like children over the smallest things. When you can support each other, sometimes like a house of cards,
And maybe love isn’t always a passionate kiss and intimacy, but rather, a tight embrace that whispers,  “I’m sorry. Let’s not fight,” 
The world is so much rosier because I love you,  the sky is full of gorgeous colors and I don’t feel so lost Because I love you the world is in slow motion again. 
I will not use the knife dug into my back from you to turn around and return your woes when I have better things to do. 
Because I love you, you are not only my companion but my best friend as well. Because I love you, I accept you for who you are and not who I want you to be
Because I loved him My heart was caged, belonging to a single owner Not myself, but to him my keeper My actions not my own My words coaxed from my mouth Following wherever he lead me
I Feel It In My Gut By Ashley Herkommer   Because I love you…
You liked to look at old things like houses. It was like a system check to make sure you were alive. Then one night, while I was resting under the hazy watch of a dark sky, you made my body your house.
Because I love you, I stay when you tell me to go because love is a choice, and anywhere without you is a place I don't want to know.   Because I love you, I will reassure you that you're enough for me everyday
Love isn't something that can be explained but felt. Love isn't something to take for granted but to cherish. Love is putting someone else's pain and suffering before your own with no hesitation.
Love What is this mysterious emotion that everyone feels A deceptive commutative property In Self discovery I gotta find who I am
-Open My Heart- Give me lifeWake me up in the morning,Kiss me at the crack of dawn and tell me that you love me.Show me that your expectations can exceed my expectancy.
“How was your day?” “Please let me know when you get home.” “I miss you.” “I promise.”   “That’s my girl.” “Let’s go somewhere.” “I’m making you cookies.” “My family adores you.”  
While we were innocent and happy you made me feel like flowers And I couldn't keep them to myself So I decided to plant them all over and make them as beautiful as you made me  
Is it bitter Is it sweet Is it tasty Is it savory What is the word To describe something You use to dull pain Everyone has atleast one Mine is alcohol Seemed so exciting
They sayThat actions speak louderThan wordsBecause, they say  
I love you, but you don’t see I call out for you Oh, how I reach Do you hear me? Do you feel? Just tell me now
Sorry It’s not enough I would give you everything But You can’t take it All I wanted was for you To know how I feel.
What do I do now? You're slipping from me, fading  And a part of me somehow Just watches as you call out to me  Screaming to follow you  Screaming to grab onto your hand 
love is patient, it is also kind it can be hopeful and sometimes scary, but it can also be evil it is selfless, maybe selfish love is an experience it can be everything you ever hoped it would be
Fall with me, down into the depths of the earth I want to show you what you are worth We will meet at the planet’s core And hear each other’s voices once more  
She believed that it was true, reality.The touch that lead to a warmer sensation inside.The laugh, the voice, the comfort.Complete silence, and pure happiness.She soon found out that it was a moment.
She melted the sun, He took away the moon.   She plucked the stars from the sky, He organized them into neat piles.   She painted the roses white, He ran them over with his truck.  
As his eyes met hers, once again, memories filled with colorful bliss suddenly awakened,   the past quickly met the present, but only in his mind, and only for a moment  
There once was a princess that did everything right. She didn't lie,  she didn't swear, and said her prayers every night.    She kept up with her studies and aced every test. 
Black hearts bleed red I would know For there is a sword in mine It glistens ike embers when I turn to the sun And it's red blood twinkles as it drips As if the drops are falling stars
Love can be painful, Bittersweet and beautiful, Saying goodbye sucks.
Talking to him he has never even heard of Blue Velvet But with you we discuss the details Small things He thinks it's his favorite Mine is Mullholand we discuss Mulholland is scary
#Day2 - August 2017   Love shot down like a thug on the street..   Heart shattered like broken glass on a beat..   Sound waves rumbling through my head like a stampede..  
How do you sleep with so much in your head like a train circulating a mountain, full speed it's hard for you to go to bed like a victim fighting to be freed my mind gives me no peace
In the coldest Winter you were the coat that kept me warm Made from many patches all my favorite colours   I trust you like the fire treading through snow storms With your embrace comes wisdom
Not ready to see that face of yours again The only thoughts I have are memories of mine pressed against yours That so-called love we used to pass the loneliness we feel in our hearts
Your vibe up lifts my soul while your brown eyes keep it at bay.. The touch of your skin gives me peace and also energizes my dark side...
My Strawberry Cheesecake with a Milkshake   The inexplicable display of perfection that occurs when you smile and
That initial start comes with a burst of excitement, special thoughts, high hopes and some enlightenment Ready to open minds like books and share content that is never written
We are defined by the simplicity of a few words. Morphed out of nothing, as if expectations should really come from a boy in your chem class. He says he likes his girls skinny.
What once was a mirror, is now a window pane Different photos in the same frame I'm trapped in this gallery, yet I once was the art and everyday I wish for a fresh start but everytime I look it breaks my heart
Ya nigga played you but you blamin' bitches, throwin the blame because you know he was wit us fuckin' other females but sayin he love you, the reason you take him back because he admit that he does it
We were kids turning pages, in a couple year long love story and it ended pages ripped, i'm sorry.    My starry eyes didn't last, dear diary, I kept them waiting, then left them
Only can bottle it up in glass one at a time. My second hand right on Rome, lemon lime ticking and itching into unseen wants, leaning into what I hide when my southpaw mainhand
You used to take my breath away with just a single glance, Suddenly appearing behind me, You'd beg me to slow dance.   I was captivated by your confidence, And eagerness to impress,
Lyrics amidst flames   You looked at me and said I see it Lying there next to you Feeling the veins of your sheets Pump forever into our skin   You love me right
She wasn’t alive when you were finished with her You ripped apart, piece by piece limb by limb until she was gone   You didn’t start with her heart
I've been spending all this energy on you but you're taxing so I never have enough and now I'm spent.  You've twisted my perception that I am not good enough for you, but that is a lie. a fairytale. a fallacy. 
I keep holding on to fragments of you. Shards of possibility glitter with promise.  I feel you slipping through my fingers.  I grip you tighter, cutting myself as you leave my grasp.  My pain stains on your beauty.  
At the time I didn't know I needed to hold on.  To the moments.  The memories.  At the time I didn't know I'd miss them.  That I'd want them back.   
A man from the moon and a woman whose been raised by the sun. One of them has found powerful bullets while the other holds the gun.Seldom thoughts of this thing called intimacy that is foreign to their minds.
Baby steps.Just remember the baby stepsOf forgiving, and just forgetting.Forgiving the hell you put me through during and after us.Forgetting the amazing times you put me through during, and after us. Fuck You.
His hazel soft eyes were enticing, Flashing their way through her soul. The feel of the valve.. A sure way to tell..! She couldn't stop the gaze Locked in his cage... It was forever.
you said i'm beautiful,was it true? you said you love me,was it true? you said you wouldn't hurt me,was it true? you said you wouldn't leave me,was it true?
Thought I could stay,That what I felt as strong enough that I would'nt feel like walking away.Thought I could stop this;All my doubts,But they keep me up at night,Trying to win this ceaseless war,
Finally I've come to this realization  That you've never planned on staying  Even with all of your dedication 
Listen, You're Beautiful So why do you hurt yourself when you're dying? You're so precious  And above this melancholy hourglass  That is your adolescence  Your mother tells you otherwise
How do you feel? Are you in love? Or is it lust? Shall I be a port in the storm? Or will I be with you for as long as we both want?
A beautiful day with just a few clouds. Cool breeze blowing around and around. So peaceful I seem to be on what seems to me the perfect day. Until thinking of you turns my world to grey.
Your hands hold our fate within them. Intertwined within your fingers, you play with it like puppet strings. You are my puppeteer.
She’s A Natural Player
Her words can hold rhythm with the way your heart beats Her mouth spews promises I wish she could keep Theres whole galaxies in her head But she's afraid to leave the earth They say God is in the cosmos
I remember how we used to beUse to be happyWithout a care in the worldUse to spend every day togetherDoing everything yet nothing at allThen one day everything just changed
My body is paper. I fold myself to what you need Scribble pretty words on myself So that you’ll think I’m Pretty Smart
I'm tiredI'm Oh so tiredI don't know if I can take this anymoreIf I can stayIf I can play alongPretend to still be happyThe small upsAre no longer worth the crushing blows
Sometimes I just wanna sing So loud it makes my ears ring But it's not enough It'll never be enough I've got no better way to say   I love you, I need you, I want you, I miss you
It's so strange and almost silly that I noticed little things about him, sometimes things he might not have realized about himself before...  
“If”   All we do now is just question the feeling Always thinking the other plans on leaving I told you my goals a long time ago You the one to decide to stay or it let go
Gotta admit, you did a number on me And I guess I should’ve seen it coming this time But I’ve recalled how to live without you So rest assured, I’m doing just fine   I wish hindsight came before foresight
You hurt me again It’s written on your skin Circling around your wrist As well as your arms and hips   The scars on your skin Would you stop if I paint my name over them? I prefer permanent pen
Why does anyone care for red roses? Their scent alone is awfully violent And the pain their thorns often impose is Not worth the money many have spent
I am from Fancy Farm, Kentucky. From Brookport, Illinois. I am from Reidland, Kentucky. (Still crazy how that sounds).   I am from Fancy Farm, Homemade chocolate oatmeal cookies
It took a year To learn more than I could have in the other sixteen.  It took a year For me to accept that you can outgrow people As you outgrow clothing:
Insecurity (“”)                 Why aren’t you happier to see me                 Why don’t you look nicer when we go out                 Why do you always have to be so smart. . . or clueless. . . or dumb
17 years.  I had been asleep for 17 years.  Lost in a world of dreams, hopes, and aspirations, I forgot that i was a teenage girl, almost out of high school, with no "teenage girl in high school" experiences. 
When we crossed paths, There was already a connection You caress me with your voice and penetrated me with your words You aroused me with your knowledge and made me throbbed with your touch
  and i can't love you the way i should the way you deserve though i want to i'm just scared scared that loving me, the broken mess that i am, will leave this black mark on your soul,
In the beginning I always considered myself to be like Sherlock Holmes Logical, a little impractical, stubborn, and Alone. Not by anything other than choice of course. But alone nonetheless  
ACT I The thing that shaped my year?   Well…it was not a what,   or a when, or a where,   or even a why…   It was a who.   But who…was this who?
I will always be here for you 
I will always hug you 
I will always kiss you 
I will always tell you good morning 
 I will always tell you good luck 
I will always look into your eyes as if time has stalled 

Seems like forever A boy with a Peter Pan face Walked into my life   A split across the people The candidates speak on TV A passion is born   Feel the Bern I’d shout
A year has passed I was always told hands for holding, For calling, For comforting. But now I belong to someone else My conscience will always point its way back to you.
A year ago your angry handsLeft red and purple sunset marks on my porcelain skin.Your lips dripped honey-covered apologies,But nothing ever really changed.
Why do men look at love as being a contagious diease  instead of a feeling thats here to fulfill your needs its mind bottiling to know that some men look at love as something that will never grow As i smoke
I’m seventeen years old. The real world is coming at me fast, Not quite yet at terminal velocity, But I’ll be getting close. I have a new hand to hold,
I remember when realized, Our favorite song was the same. I felt like you had looked at me, And seen right through my brain. You hold my face while kissing you, Your eyes they look so deep.
About this time last year, I thought I knew what stress was, as I walked through the iron gates of a gold and purple castle, waiting for Nostradamus to tell me my fate, taking classes that I thought I would hate.
I started the year being heartbroken, But determined for my future. I longed for apologies.   I knew Harry was a total player. He was a bad boy. Yet I fell for all his words. He broke my heart.
Before I get into it I'd just like to say I don't mean to offend Anyone, anyway.
I don't know how I keep falling in and out of love with you you would have thought after all this time my feelings would be clear by now the day we first met was a fire started with a spark
So suspicious It makes me wonder I never ponder the situation we had because I trusted youSooner the truth will come And to someThey think I'm wrongBut I'm really tired singing the same song Been hear for so long trying to be strongBut that's not
This year has passed just like all the others It's last moments a whisper, before it joined it's brothers On his deathbed, I spoke to my old friend While we both knew that he would never mend  
You called to ask me how I was today Though the last time we talked I was breaking your heart.  You were yelling and you were crying and you said I was to blame. 
Smoke cascades like soft grey velvet, past cracked lips that slowly release the worries of the world, Kill yourself a little bit every day, because that's better than living long enough to think about you,
If I sit still tilt my head to a certain degree memories tumble trickle down And knock a screw free I conjure up A vague image Of what you used to be Things about you
I should never have written poetry for you.  I respect that you care for yourself, But I hate that you never learned how to care for others.
"...Half asleep, I hear a light rustle outside my window then a sunk on the right side of my bed. You lightly shook me and smiled. As always, conversation turns into an argument.
My heart is choking, Pain trying to silence it.Every beat more painful than the last.With every tear held back the pain strengthens.But no one must know the pain inside. 
I didn't used to feel this cold. I was the kind of kid that kept summer within them. I went barefoot through the snow, I wore shorts late into the fall. Never brought a coat. That was before I met you. 
they cannot breathebut they can seethe trees turn greenand the colorof the lake doesn’tmatter. they rememberthe color leaving their face, their body forgetting
We live in a world where we allow Facebook to run and control every situation we face.Even in our relationships we ran to Facebook to relay shit. When we in our feelings of course let's get on Facebook and see how we relate t
When she flipped her hair, 
We have what others call, an unhealthy relationship. You come and stay with me during the night, But leave me early in the morning. Looking back at me sighing before you leave,
As New Years day came, the words "new beginnings" engraved my soul. I was tired of playing games, and from us taking it slow. I made my decision, i was moving to miami, cause you had my heart.
Sutures heal the wounded but doom the healthy Sutures are more than stitches and seams for injuries seems they can be for hearts too Sew your heart to mine
I feel the end is near.10 minutes till the credits.Unused film on the ground.There are no more edits. By all means,It was a great movie.From the mysterious beginning,To the ending that threw me.
  "The blacker the berry, The sweeter the juice"     Is the first quote I think of when I think of you
you you are a black hole you consume everything you touch and collapse in upon yourself when there is no more for you to hold tightly to the void that trickles like ink when you speak
You were a neckalce that HE gave me A gift, a present, a statement of commitment. Oh how the tables turned as that pearl of loyalty faded. I was happy, In love, naive to your shiny gloss
I want the ugly pictures back. I want them plastered on social media and loaded in your phone. I want the screenshots of every single snapchat or selfie back.
What are you, but an Itch I cannot reach?A dark poison, flowing so slick, carefreePsychological warfare, please don’t preachBegone!The pain in my neck, leave us be!Little Hippie you, get chained to a tree
I cannot grasp enough breath to express a single word from my mouth.  I can feel my heart beating like a drum with a rhyme that can’t find a pattern and I can't feel the pulse drags through my heart, body and heart again.
​ I'm doing this because I love you, Don't you get it? What happens when I'm gone, And you have no one to look up to.   Huh? Huh?
When the phone turns on A smile appears on my face All my worries are gone Because I get to have the grace Of seeing my love Who smiles back at me And I feel truly free of
once i reached for the Moon,   fishing pole in hand,   i grabbed for it   and grasped-   DESPERATE  
Love and Lies   The feeling in my chest, Is one I’ve felt before. All so easy to notice,
Your lips crash onto mine, Cracked, pink, and divine. The bittersweet taste of you Touches my tongue, I crave your lips even more,
You're beauty is like starlight, but more like the spaces in betweenBecause you're so much more than just a pretty faceYou're so much more than the precious pearls you hide behind
I haven’t told my family and friends about these feelings, How I find girls more appealing. I wish I was freewheeling Because my heart is what she’s stealing.   My heart pounds when she’s near.
I recently wrote my first poetry book and I thought I would share it with the poetry community. If you would like to support it you can type in Gissel Grizzle or Untold Verses into the Amazon search.I'm not able to post the link here.
This pain is simply pulling me apartCaught between you and the freedom of hopeThe simple irony of your oath"I promise to let you breathe," Yet your hands are around my neck."I promise to let you see," Still you are all I know."I promise to let you
I guess I always knew you would move on I don't blame you for it,  In fact I'm happy for you. Still it hurts knowing that I haven't moved on. I know I made it seem like I never liked you as anything more than a friend, But that simply wasn't true.
  ‘Today’ my mother says, triumphant, ‘we are bottling peaches’. When I ask why, my mother tells me that it is ‘our tradition’ As though I have bottled peaches before. I have never bottled peaches before.
Don't ever leave I want you to stay Don't hide how you feel I feel the same way   Don't keep me waiting I've been very patient But don't rush either I'll savour each moment  
Rose colored glasses Rose coloured glasses My heart was like the desert, so I always kept a pair Hoping they would show me your rain So my roses could grow again But you were just another sandstorm
On Monday, she’s weary, teary, and unsure. She is sure that she’ll be able to fake a smile, but unsure if her friends and family will know it’s fake.
Love is not blind; love helps one to see.
You were once the man that made my smile grow wide,But now you're the man that makes my smile die.Every time I see you, my heart decides to break.Every time I remember you, my organs inside me ache.I'll never forget those really good times, when w
I can hear but you never tell me- how you feel that’s why I’m drowning- in these ashes of flames that we caused, caused to burst since we showed each other our flaws.Though we try we just fill with hatred- for the agony of the other in the other’s
When we started off, I was all too worried. Hoping your son would grow to like me and that you would be comfortable with a new man in your lives.
From the moment you said hi I knew I was hooked By the way you laughed, your eyes, and your love for books 2,244 miles to see that northern smile I'd stay up at night wondering if it would be worth my while
The smoke from his cigarette slowly left the ember end into the air, disappearing and only leaving a lingering smell. That's when I realized it was like our relationship. We keep drifting apart from each other,
Once upon a time, He once looked at me in my chestnut eyes and told me I was beautiful He once said the only person that could set his soul on fire was me
  How does one grow tired of a relationship Do you just wake up and realize that you’ve invested the bulk of your precious attention
I told you I loved you over text. You told me you would love me too, if I had a penis inbetween my legs. I begged you not to tell anyone about what happened, and cried in the shower, wondering what was wrong with me. 
He stands before me He stands beside me Yet also he stands behind me He is my world He is my soul He is my everything He is all I need
    Their noses are higher than their IQ's they step on sweet innocents as if they roses.         When will they relize?      We fumble around as if we've been shotten , but in reality we are all just rotten.
Parents. I no longer view this word this way P4r3nT5. Now this is much better A mess of stuff that is put together to make it look, decent.  
Do you remember that night? When you and I lay on that couch, That couch with stains from different nights, And you said you’d never live my side, Come rain come shine?  
When I met you I knew it was too good to be true and I was right while I thought gardening is what was bringing us together  it was actually tearing us apart
My eyes invite seductive. A smile will ignite a flame. The warmth of your skin on mine well drive you insane, whlie wishing and begging for more.
I have this feeling deep inside, not quite like or appreciate. I open my mouth to call it love, but then I pause, I hesitate.   I test the words: "I love you!" They echo, cold, empty.
He used to walk under nothing but a raincloud, Until she came, Held his hand,  And showed him the sun.
Whatever is true And whatever is right like you and me Just like your fingerprints that are tatted on my skin invisibly
With every unsaid wordbetween us,a new brick is addedto our wall of silence. This silence begannaturally as wegrewboth up and apart.
I don’t love you at all. And before you glare at me with those squinted eyes, Before you place your hands akimbo, Before you wiggle your neck at me and say, “Excuse me?!” Excuse me while I light my spliff.  
My life is in shambles. Now I know how the cookie crumbles. Never have I ever been in so much trouble. But now so burst is my bubble.   My worst fear led to my jubilation,
Soon she will march in through that door, And my head will be struck by the abrupt reminder, A painful thunderbolt reminding me of our repulsive love, The sight of her prompts the formation of indescribable feelings in me.
Her hypnotizing eyes, so full of life look at me. Her luscious lips stretch into a charming smile. She reaches out for me. Her warm, sweet breath hits my face. I embrace her, but only manage to hug empty air.
Walking down Eastlands in Nairobi with my head bowed and my hands pocketed at 3am has always been such a beautiful thing to me.
I'm fine. 
Now when i'm single, that's when i have feelings  I go from happy to depressed  to even know what i am thinking  I sink in  To these emotions filling in my body  then I start to dropping, 
As I write out my pain, I tell you love's not a game This heartbreak's driving me insane, slowly numbing my brain   I try not to let it show, but deep inside my sadness grows
Wen I first met you I felt like I had known you forever, telling you my secrets and what I didn't want ever. you listened to me I bet you thought I'd never end, who would have thought
At the end of a long day, the beautiful girl swings by her ‘friend’s’ place.
  Funny, isn't it? How the more the days pass by, the heavier your essence weighs on my shoulders? I shut my eyes and see you, Feel you, Sense every aspect of you,
The music is blazing. It makes my father smile. We listen to it every day As we drive another mile. My sister writes a stanza. It reminds me of my father.
I read that words have the power to change us and for the longest time, I refused to believe it.
He made everything better I don’t know how he did it and I don’t think he did either He could help me through anything
After you destroyed me I wanted to cut off your hands Rip your fingers to shreds Tear your lips off of your face Gouge your blue eyes from their sockets Slice your legs to bits  
Love, a thing of beauty Love, a relationship as sweet as chocolate Love, something I have waited far too long to see Love, I embrace you as you walk your way too me Love, now that we have met, I accept your offer
Her skin: soft as the edge of her sword And her hair: carved from the volcanic ashes. Her heart: away from advancing toward His hardline lips; and her faint eyelashes: Disguising keys to his grave, shallow as--
Oh society how dare you Promoting skinny as beautifulAnd fat is insecureBut at the same timeFat should love their curves And skinny should eat a hamburger You create these controversiesThat being single sucksAnd to strive for relationships But who
I’ve spent countless hours of my life thinking and brooding, Considering the complexities of my past relations. And it is during these times, with my emotions moving, Which cause more oft than not unsightly ruminations.
I need you to promise me you'll pick up the pieces of my heart that are broken, for I am afraid that if too many pieces are lost, I'll lose myself completely,
ONE. We meet.A while later, we start talking.Later still, we discover that the term "soul-mates" doesn't just apply to the romantically inclined.
Oh my weary loving king, rest your mind, and see what dreams the night will bring. Put your worried mind at ease, and know our love, no boundaries sees.
You fight with me You fight for our land You fight with we You fight to stand   Your fight has come Your fight must be won   You fought for me You fought for our land
leave      leave           leave              i am sick             my mind is sick             my heart's lost its fullness             but beats sadly onwards            
I saw blue book in the storeyesterday, but I did not pick it up.  I was preoccupied with another and did not want to read two things at once. My first book was short and filled with lots of hookups.  
I am stuck on the idea of forever. Of being with someone forever. Trips to the grocery store together, forever. Waking up next to someone, forever. Loving someone, and them loving me, forever.
You hate you I love me I love you You love Me   You hurt you   You love me I love you
What were my words like, how did they sound, and how did they read before you?
Laying on of hands You pretend it’s poetry But I still can’t breathe
I wish I could have told you how I felt.
four months ago we came to a close, you came into my room and said "you have a lot of books in here." you ended it, and we lay for fifteen minutes, with you holding me as i held my tears in. 
Spring turns to summerThe hottness growsMy love for you weakensYou cared for me from your head to your toesWhat happened, what happened
The tears ive cried knowing that i have lied to you i should have never the pan i have to take forever   The guilt i would gain to know i caused you pain its all my fault
You and I were like fire and gasoline, each time we saw each other, you inflamed me my mind, my soul, my heart was alive but then the depression hit me and I was just trying to survive.
Loving thoughtlessly  
One less inquiry   
Start of something new Never ending soon   From football and cross Now running on the track Oh the memories, now a loss
you are the reason the ancients worshiped the sky.someone so beautiful could not have come from the dirt of the Earth,you were born in the aftermath of a supernova. you have galaxies blooming inside of you
Shit...that's all I could say on the night that my dad made us go different ways. I said it three times as I put on my pants, and he knocked on the window as you pulled out your hand.
 Again I feel my heart crumblingMy spirit is twisting and tears are wellingunder all this pain.I’m happy for him,He’s going to make himself a better lifeBut inside I feel empty,without his strong arms around my waist, his warm breath in my hair.My
I'm falling deep,knees are shaking,I'm feeling weak.I don't know what to say,When I open my mouth to speak. All these fucking feelingsAre attacking me. Weighing me down, 
Which way should I go? My heart says yes, but my head says no. Should I go up the path, or down the road? My hopes are high, and then they're low. Waiting for answers, chasing dreams.
Gravity, a reality A slumber a tragedy. What I found out is maddening, Into the waves it’s dragging me. Lies, anger, chaos, passing. All around the lights are flashing,
Take your space and make it worth it see my face and know you hurt it. I know you never want to see me cry, but I just can't ever tell you goodbye. I came to love you as if it were necessity, and you bring out what is best in me.
Never could I turn to one who knows me as you do I thought that I could never be myself until I met you. Endless, restless nights spent awake just holding it in, Yet you were right there, as though you were kin.
Remember that time you said that you cared? Yep - me neither.  Everything you do and say is a lie covered up with smiles and laughs. Do you think that changes anything?
This is what it feels like to be hurt. To have the breath knocked out of you, Whith a word or two you killed me And as I sit here typing I realize You broke me. I realize you took from me.
i used to be every girl in every song you heard i used to pollute your mind and populate your world but it's not okay anymore and you don't want me there the way you did before
Liquid crystal, a crystal harder and more beautiful than any diamond. The smell or iron filled her nose, The thin red lines inflating like small red balloons, The pain tasted like immature bitter melon,
The shingles of my mind fall swiftly off their structure  as they would from an abandoned house. There isn’t a single thing that could escape from your lips,  or mine, that could rebuild what’s falling apart.
She peaks like swell in the ocean and crashes into the sand dunes. She soars with the pelicans and falls with rain. She is the orange sunset glimmering across the river, only to disappear over the west when looked upon.
he talked lots about Dadaism art i understood not one thing about it except that it was anti-art like our relationship was anti-commitment
Two broken hearts slowly dying And sorry I could not heal them both And be one hero, as i kept crying And thought what was right To shine both so bright Then felt captured by my feelings
Leap of faith into the wind, Parachute back in resemblance of the staggered memories of independence. The title, "us!" is presented with both neighboring feelings of worry and hope,
This sand is no longer paradise, There's hopelessness in the sea. But I am not alone here, there’s Feet that don't belong to me.   A living being, my own blood, Someone I couldn't live without,
days like these i miss you warm, windy days of summer 2,853 miles apart
A smile, a frown, some tears, some laughs Conveys a message. Handshakes, hugs, shrugs Have unique meaning.   Communication is important to life. Without it, love ceases, relationships dissolve.
If you had asked me a couple months ago the question “What is the one thing or one person you could not live without,” I would have answered, without hesitation or doubt in my mind.   I would have told you it was him.
Love is pain worse than any toothache Love can bring you happiness or heartbreak It can be a struggle not knowing where love leads Love can be as cryptic as an unsolved mystery Love is pain
I hate this disease. I always feel so flustered and tired. I hate how it controls me so easily, so effortlessly. The toxins take over slowly and then all at once. There isn't a cure yet
she looks At him the Cringe The electricity the fire  warmth surrounding  she Looks away connection Lost  
I A house Count down the days until she leaves.   Day 200: She stuffs me with her pie recipes Old family photos
When we first met, I said, “I’m not too good at skating forward.”  On metal trucks, hot enough to burn the sun, I like to think we scratched pavement
God, I hate you.I hate how you deleted me only when you found someone elseand I hate how your friends say the same things about her.I hate how you use the same goddamn places,our memories, and our pick-up phrases,
  He is tall, he is handsome, he is original. He is smart, he is talented and he gets me threw the obstacle. No matter the day, no matter the time
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..
This is the way she played me, and hell if I'm not angry. Now I Don't typically write rymes Let alone spit man. I'm just your average Maine white guy, who probably won't incite crime. 
When alone and deserted  My attention still can't be diverted There's only one thing I need Only one thing I breathe You.   My hopes and my dreams, What do they even mean
I'm feeling so real But truth and lies Are one and the same On fair-weathered or Rainy days including Bonus clouds and all Murkiness is always extra Grayness is never free or
As I was fighting for you, I realized I was fighting to be lied too, Fighting to be denied to put my heart inside you, Fighting to be cheated and be lied too,
You are the cartographerAnd I, the compass roseYour maps show where we've already beenBut there are other places still to go
If you have ever Walked down a street, You are sure to remember That many people you meet. Not faces, per se, But people still. "Only some will do important things," they say,
For a year My eyes were on you My faith in you too Your words in my head The tears on my bed For a year I belonged to you And not with you I kissed in vain And took the pain.
Love can and will Burn you Begins in sparks Ends with ashes Yet for the lucky Instead of ashes Instead of burning out They come to find They are phoenixes And do not partake
Fallen hopelessly  Trying desperately to find Solid ground, But the Earth keeps Shaking, her center  Growing cold.   While shooting for  Her stars, gravity pulling back in,
I don’t know how to tell if the guy you like seems to have fallen for you. I don’t know what it feels like to hold hands or kiss in the moonlight.
One day I couldn't reconize myself. I looked in the mirror and couldn't find my face from all the troubles of the world. I wear a smile to cover the pain as I wash away the blood and scars. He hit me. As the red washed away my mind did too.
She’s keeps me sane when my mind is uneasy Always motivates me to do my best Never allows me to waiver in times of adversity Demands me to be different from everyone else

Real life isn't like T.V.It doesn't cut away to commercial.It doesn't end always end in resolution. Real life is messy and it's loud.Its watching a marriage of several decades
Hot kiss in the cold rain.A steady beat of a pulsing vein.The fearful calm of the never the same.The sweet aftertaste of your whispered name. Two extremes inside one heart. 
It always begins the same. You slide behind a cold cold wheel. The solid black night stretches on forever. You slip trance like as the lights fly by. Each one a life with choices and consequences. 
A great man once said that we are all born from star dust.I think that's true. It would explain why every inch of you glows like the sun. Another great man theorized the universe started with a bang. 
The fans rattling again. It's not the only thing shaking in the darkness.But it's making such a loud racket. I keep it on anyway. I'm afraid the silence will kill me. I fight sleep like it's tangible. 
There are moments in life.Then there are moments, in life.It's a gift to know exactly whenyou discovered what love really is. It was laying ear to ear with you,So quiet I can almost hear your thoughts.
Inhale. Exhale. I've lost something, but I'm not quite certain of what. It's feels like when you reach for a wallet or a phone.Knowing it's there only to find it's not. There's a brief moment of lightning panic
I'm fine, I'm fine, I'm fine.I say it in my head again.Again. Out loud. But just above a whisper.Repeat it again in the shower. It gets  lost in the melody.Mixing in the steam in the background. 
Before you date somebody with amental illness, you must rememberthat calling them beautiful willnot adjust their brain's chemicallevels.  Sweet words do not reversesickness that plagues the mind

The sun beamed down on her. The warmth calmed her. She hadn't felt this good in years it seemed.         She felt fine,                But Lord knows she isn't.
You say you're here for me You say I can count on you You say... a lot of things. "You just aren't like that" "You should lower your expactations" "Reality check..."
One word to describe our relationship? Brutal To others we may seem broken 
I am happy. Those words are underestimated, heard but unseen a warm breeze that slides along the cheek of another. You make me happy.  I feel as though you cause my bloodstream
How are you my dear? They always ask, don’t they? Day after day the strangers inquire, Though not a single one aspires To actually shun
An open letter to the first boy I thought I couldn't live without,
Two. Never more than inches apart, but blinded, to what real love was. The same society that binded them, Together but pushed in opposite directions, strangled, entangled,
The world is extravagant, Knowing that you are only across the Earth's blue blanket, It's an adventure worthy of the valuable trinket, Someone that loves me so, and a confidant,   The hope within the soul of ours, Drives us to achieve the holy gra
Well I had that damn dream again. The one where you come back. You show up at my house,  dressed to the nines with roses in your hand.
I see you there, standing in the wind. Your beautiful hair, the soft locks that frame your delicate face. You turn to me
Why does this happen Do guys thing it's okay to do this? To mess with our feelings As if it's nothing As if it doesn't hurt us?   Why does this happen Guys tell us they love us just so
Dear First Crush,   I dreamt about you once. I was there and of course you were there, and we live out our entire lives while I slept.   In reality, my dream came true
            When there are nights             I can’t sleep or             when my mind strolls             and ponders             against the wall,             I want nothing more than
I’m one step closer to becoming moonless. Pupils engulfed oil black seas without her, but not the day her hand warmed a limp soul, and when we first made love on a cold night.
All these chances I've given you, and All those times you had me regret it  But then I remember our times, our smiles, our jokes and all the lovey dovey things we did  It comes in the way of hating you
I've been single for my entire lifeAt least as far as being official goesI've always been told I'll need a wifeOr a husband. But that, they didn't know-But why are we fed that this is required?
ValidationThis is the only thing I needWhen I have itI can finally feel secureAnd only with itDo I feel safe-It's comparable to an addictionIt keeps away my demonsIt makes me unafraid
Roses are not red, they’re internal colors that blend together, it is our naked eye that misguides us. Something so natural, untouched yet so beautiful and breathtaking.
Empty. Quiet and still on the inside. Everything stuffed inside the closet. Fire ignites, change happens.  His eyes meet mine and the flame gets fanned. The fire rages inside us.
Pull me into your chest. Cover me with your body and I will forget all the reasons I have to run We will sleep through the sunrise
Its been about 4 months...? Who am I kidding here, its been 4 months, two days and 12 hours since you've gone and I am sitting in the same robe I slept in two weeks ago.
Searching for better in me while I find my identity  Looking for better for me because I deserve all I receive  I deserve the negative shit because it opens my eyes to better shit 
You’re right, you’re right. You’ve always been right. Our kind of thing is different.
Do you think about me the way I think about you? I often wonder wat you are up to Does your heart ache when you remember my face? Without you I can no longer find my happy place
I am shell, shadow,left to leave a lakeof my own tears and ask that you woulddrown in them,be brave,soon,and drown in them.Meet me on the other side.
Don’t give me a look From the side of your gaze Unless you can smile at me With all of your face   Don’t whisper to others When I am not around  Unless those same words uttered
The cold feels familiar when shes not around. Snow.  Falls too fast to determine the footprints in the ground Me. Too afraid to make a sound She. Knows whats on my mind, the vision is soo profound.
I am slowly changing like a painting manipulated and altered by multiple artists. The artists and I grow old together. My tattered corners must add some character to me, right?
I was thinking of the way she use to kiss me, miss me  Tell me how much she love me even when she wasn't feeling me  Even when we argue I see the pain & love in her eyes  Like they playing tug of war, who wins tonight 
If consent were a key I would have lost it a long, long time ago.   There is not a moment I don’t hate you
He stole my heart But they stole him Off to war, he fought And our future looked dim Before he left he pulled me in He whispered “I love you” And my pain begin I could barely mumble, “I love you too”
It hurts to be forgettenI try to supress the painbut it still doesn't work,so my other best option
The difference between you and meis that we were never meant to be,but you can't helppush that fact farther,and I can't helpbut try to be together forever.
I been fighting for something that's not there  Waiting on someone who don't care  This love thing just ain't fair    And yeah you say you love me and that you'd always be there 
I tried to hold on sorry I let go, lost my grip hand slipped then I lost all control Anger embarrassed me and it got the best of me
You're the moon and stars in my dark skies. By your guiding light I find my way home to you. With your love I'm forever safe from the dark. Because of your love, I no longer think of the pain.
i wish there’s someway i could tell you about not being able to sleep. i want you to view me with virtue; i want your opinions to keep.   so i can’t tell you of what i’m dreaming,
Breaking Up   It is as if we’re breaking up. Breaking that beautiful bliss That we had collected in Five short days. Just as a child collects sea shells,
I could have been anyone Even the person you wanted me to be I would say I’m sorry So sorry for being Me   So let’s go back to the beginning
Part I. They Fell In   Simply put I cannot understand you The way you make my chest shorten And the way all this furniture of our lives came about
I’d lie if I said I think about you all the time, But when I do think of you it’s spontaneous. Touching my neck and imagining you kissing it,
The thought of you makes me smile, Listening to a song or seeing a couple holding hands and wondering why you can’t be with me. I want your touch in the most innocent way;
  When I arrived he was gone- my stomach vociferated in harmony with his (hello hello hello) soul I tried to close my eyes and trace the throat of his fingernails and when I arrived, he was gone.

Smiles are flighty creatures they come and go in an instant like your train of thought when you lose it or that shooting star you wish would stay forever
I walked with you in a dreamlike state, Our surroundings growing darker every minute, You kept wishing for daylight, but I, I found comfort in the night.
I never know how much I like you, until I sit down to write about you, and then I realize, there are so many words to describe you,
If I had the money, I’d buy a telescope, so I could look deep into the galaxies hidden in your eyes, your dark, dark eyes,
Like cold sheets, the night air wraps around us, your voice hangs in the sky with the stars, and the moon reflects it back to me, and I lay there,
I wish I could dump your fears into the ocean,  and let them sink away from your memory   I wish I could fire your doubts amongst the stars,
tell me you love me with stars in your eyes and i’ll run my bruised hands through your hair. tell me you love me, darling, it’s no surprise: i’ve known forever that you are there.  
I wished to know you but choked on conversations that were never there 
I tried to fall in love,  and love fell away from me.  Music tastes and edited imagery can’t disguise the doubts of the reality that you are not good or true  for who I am trying to be, 
Say the words you know will burn a fire within me Say the ones that you think will push me Say them. Please say them.  Becuase I promise then, I won't feel bad walking away. 
Exhilaration. Heart rate speed up. Mind confused. Is it me? Is it you? Diletated pupils. Sex education didn't teach me this.   Arousal? Doesn't seem to hit it.
Towels for tips.It was a modest existence, but entertaining, to say the very least. Club life releases the beast...Carnality.
That old blue trash canstill sat in the cornerby the doorlaughing at you just go away he said in oh, so many wordsin oh, too many actions flesh crawlinghope fadingheart breaking
the lack of communication is unsettling to say the least thoughts settling in my mind to a time where paranoia never ceased life has got me on a leash but a noose is tighter
I want to tell you I will do anything to keep what we have together, That I will try to follow through and give my effort to do better.
1. You came into my life like a hurricane. I didn’t think I needed to evacuate, but you left nothing but floodwaters in your wake. We barely spoke afterward except to act like it never happened.
cling onto and drain and there's your next victim. desperate for a new taste you fling youself and cling as if your life depended on it. dependent of the Indenpendent, you cling and drain
Baby I know it wasn’t just my love that you never felt I know that you couldn’t feel it because you never loved yourself But I want to show you the beauty I see in you
You said you loved me From the first day that we were together You said you cared for me And that you would forever. Those nights we talked
I’m catching feelings for you mighty fast so if I put you to through the tests I hope that you will pass ‘cause I would hate to not have you around me all the time,
The ache I have for you starts in my finger tips, 
And it rattles my bones,
I have made you my home.  Oh, what a move that was made that September night,
I never would’ve guessed,
That it could lead to this. Maybe we’re the moon and the ocean,
We were like the waves colliding against the bay. Coming so close together, I wish we could have stayed that way forever.
Dear lover, ​I write a lot. There are words scribbled on my palms, my arms.
Your hands run through my hair Your piercing eyes searching mine For what, I do not know Nor do I know what you will find.   Maybe you see the way I adore you My thoughts always wandering back to you
Maybe I'm unlucky Maybe I'm dumb Maybe I'm second  Maybe she's the one Maybe I Lie Maybe it's not love Maybe is too much Maybe I have some other things to think of.
Why won’t I get it?   I have friends both male and female. I go to parties. I’m social with others. I do all these things and yet Whenever I hear my loved one does it as well My brain tells me
A Phantom Music   Music this place, hearts do dance Hidden your face, beloved phantom of grace   Beloved, your music lays about
I’m Standing right in front of you 
I have learned, the only true person you can save is your self. You are the only one in control of Whether you want to be happy in the light or to be happy in the dark.
Beloved, In what other lives or lands Have I known your lips? Your Hands? Your Laughter?   Irreverent of death. I do adore.   Hope is there in that we will meet again,
Because you said i was beutiful i began to redifined myself, God began to work. You loved my inperfections, my weaknesses, my hurt. You loved my scars from the inside out so I let you make love me emotionally and physically.
Wounding are the words Malice their intent   Damage lays strewn Glass shards, small and large   Carve, Cut and Cauterize Blood dries and wounds are ignored

She always seeks the broken hearts,And she tries her best to fix them;Drifting around from here to there,
i always wake up feeling the best at other people’s houses and other people’s beds. is it the person or is it the meds? feed me sertraline and caffeine, inject me with all those pills  and potions. give me a reason to keep living by my struggling...
Your face resembles Medusa holds the utmost beauty  but I know one look will have me frozen in time Wish I could rewind  When you looked in my eyes And Pause on that moment Melting , and tongue tied
Your tainted fingertips I remember the feeling of being wrapped in recycled hands And being kissed by used lips
All I see are memories of your silohoutte I remember the day you left Like it was yesterday You said you couldn't resist her And Ma and I  Couldn't overlook the fact that Everytime you came home
Why did you lie to me Why did you say you cared When I knew you didn't Why did you say I was first  When I knew I wasn't Why did you act like I was special
Dear No One,
When you grow up you realize the heart comes with a burdenYou will see it now how blind it was back thenThe responsibility to have your heart can only be taken on by one

We're happy, oh so happyEven when we shouldn't beBut we make the work although, you said you hate me.. Yeah, we fightLike we can't get it rightAnd yet you still say that our future's bright
She often sat and wondered how they became so distant.He is close enough to touch, but too far away to reach.Every song and saying reminds her of what used to be.

You told me you weren't musicalYet you play the beat of my heart perfectly in timeYou said you weren't hotBut you light a fire within meYou insisted you weren't lyricalAlthough your words are a beautiful rhyme
The ocean waves came pounding downSo fast, I can’t breathe so I drownAround me there are shades of blueAnd all I know is I'll miss youThe water was so coldI miss the warmth of your loving hold
I see you. Your lies shinging bright in the darkness that surrounds me. My frail heart was placed in your cold hands Barely beating. You breathe on warmth You smile as my body glows.
Breathe. Broken. Helpless. Hurt. Cast down. These words burnt a whole into Kendra’s heart. Breathe.
See the stars dance for you tonightI'll hold you close and tell you, "It'll be alright."Stay with me for a whileAnd keep your fears in exileWith me is where you should beIn my arm's embrace for eternity
I jumped into the ocean one starry nightIn hopes that maybe you'd save meBut the waves came crashingAnd took me into their embrace,They took me to my sweet escape,Under the night sky, under the stars
“Skies are blue inside of you”                                                                         90 “Don’t you wish you were free, Lenina?”                                                   91
Dear whoever it may concern, I truely believe I am in love with you, the way your eyes light up when you smile, like the sunset has decided to visit me every single day.   You say that I'm insane,
How the touch of flesh can bring emotion
Goodbye because this isn’t working
I should have broken up with youthe
Don’t fall in
Women are like gnats. They only come in packs. Some nights they don’t show up, Some nights they just attack.   What’s worst about them, though, Is that when they’re finally done,
Complications are starting again,
i damn sure aint gon be no step daddy hell nah the fuck you think this is? aint no charity case this way i see them games that you play you got me fucked up thinkin ima take care of some other niggas problem
Be patient good things come to those who wait Rushing speeds up negative vibes pushes you away No holding back Believe that's why my last relationship escaped No excuses but we rushed despite the years
What’s worst about this whole ordeal Is not that you are gone, Nor that the words you said to me Were just to put me on,   But really that your parting voice Did quiver in its tone –
Wooden beams and wooden planks And salty sea scented air Drew our souls near the edge And then just held them there   The wind whipped our hair The cold bit our noses
I used to think I couldn’t take love but what if it’s my love that’s too harsh?
I wake up grateful everyday because i wake up next to you.
Maybe I embarrass you.
He loved me through echoes.
2:15 am It started as a cold. A small cough without any other symptoms. a difficulty to breathe. a hurt. I believe that it will just go away. This small illness I had inside would just slowly vanished without any consent. 
Alas; woe to my eyes--    Let them not see.   The object of my affection   Cares not of me.  
It will be gone b
It’s been
Red, the burning in your cheeks as you drive to your first date with her: ice cream eaten in a red cup, your treat. Orange, the spirit of the prideful school campus where you timidly closed in for your first hug with her.
Through time we will stand, together we won't fall. When the waves get rough, grasp hands, stand tall. When your world is shaken and torn at the seams, I'll hold you tight, through your nightmares and dreams.
Two world collide in the quietest way
I remember the first time you held my hand. I remember the electricity running through my body.
The days are now dark not because the sun sets at 5:30 but because it's been an eternity since we've​ spoken those 3 words out of emotion and not habit.
Today I went through my poems and threw out everything I ever wrote about you Yesterday, I would have cried
   We first met our second year of high school.
I don't want a relationship where it's perfect I want a relationship that's worth it With special moments and little lumps I want something that gives me goosebumps I need a love, not plastic, but real
The other day she sat beside him for the first time in months She watched his eyes brighten at the thought of his new life without her But the way he sat on his hands told her he was fighting the urge to touch her cheek
My skin with yours Your skin with mine  This lovely little  Pantomime   Heaving Breaths Thirst for more Take down the masks  That we once bore.    In the past, 
I want cuddles Rain puddles Movie nights Flying kites And tickle fights I want happy Sappy giggles Butt wiggles And jell-o jiggles
I live in fear but not for me...for someone who has PTSD. He doesn't worry as much as I do but to me, he's braver than us two. He controls his anger and his hurt He is someone that I will never desert. His laugh, his smile and the light in his eye
If you love him Waiting will be simultaneously The easiest and most difficult Thing in the world If you love him Do not tempt him Do not be alone Guilt will eat him Nibble at your love as it
And my clothes, drenched in perfume Wondering if you can smell it too.   Because of the lipstick on your cheek, I'm too nervous to speak.  
It was by chance I stumbled  into the fierce lions terrain  and he looks like all the rest  with large claws, sharp teeth, and his mane   Instinct readied my legs to run 
I never had a wall. There was nothing therefor you to climb over or knock downbut the more time I spent lingering in your shadowthe more bricks I foundand the faster I learnedto build. 
Violets are red, roses are blue, and as you can see, I am confused.
I broke my promise.
Always or never now and forever down for whatever ready to ride whenever ready to ride to the moon no matter the weather never too late or too soon with you everything's better you be my light
This hurts me more than I thought it would.
when a fig bird goes splashing into my window
But baby I swear I never meant to hurt you, 
Our relationship was a fairytale It was perfect On the outside It may have crashed and burned in the end But maybe it is a happy ending But I don't know just how yet
Rain splashes down like the tears I feel inside. They slide down the window panes, reminding me of the pain inside. My mind cries, shouting for you. Suddenly the sun bursts through, a silver lining on a cloudy day.
They said love hurts, but I didn’t think it would feel like this. A beautiful kind of hurt. That’s what I pictured.
Love is patient, love is kind, As Paul so eloquently wrote But love is fast, love is temporary, It can end as quickly as an eighth note Heartbreak sucks It’s easy to see
"Would you be like the others?", I pondered. It began with art and a hint of hesitancy. This was my thing. Our thing. And now you are here to share it. With us. One of the most magical days of my life
having you as my soul mate i state is wonderful our my soul we mold our love being with you ake e build and feel my emotions and your my light that i like
I was glowing and I was beautiful, 
At the edge of my bed, A close friend creeps, His gibbers and gabbers fill my head, The way he speaks is quite bleak, I'd not mind it if he wasn't two years dead.
Little did
You see, the problem is I have treated you as if you are the sun. And you are not the sun. My life does not depend on you, you are not in any way crucial to my survival.
I saw you lying prostrate in your bed of bones and crumbs
Your skin wears thin, white against your knuckles
Everything started because of a boy. A boy that made her feel special. The first boy she thougt she ever truely liked, 
Your work is so close and so personalTo the point I find myself uncomftable
So I took a deep breath and asked her name And she said
