It will be a while till I am fine Until this jumbled mess in my cold chest That used to pump in its warm nest Is recognizable enough… to be called mine
The wait is like a fetter on my heart.
My life displayed upon a screen- I live behind a filter; I never say what I think. I’ve been trained to keep my mouth shut, but my lips glossed and pink. Without the social media, I am like all the rest.
It's stranger than normal, this feeling I hide, and it's an ominous feeling, that I'll tuck down inside. And my chest will envelope it, this horrible truth, something I can't get rid of,

In life we have many choices to make, Some simple, some more complicated. I have a choice as to how I live my life, do I live it free or do I live it controlled? Do I let my fears and problems rule my life, or do I determine where I go from here?
I am tired and lost in my empty world Looking for answers to my questions Where do I belong? Where do I go next? What am I missing? Am I in the wrong life? Is it my hair, too short and too straight?
I think my problem is, I don't want to have to fall in and out of love several times Before I find the "right one."

No Pity for a Pedestrian By Irvin Eden Ortega I’m looking I’m looking I’m looking

Pounding Anger like a hammer struck thumb Self inflicted Mind conflicted Noise Everywhere I go Everywhere I look
I fear myself at times. I struggle to know. I question the truth- Unknown I feel at a loss. No words emerge. These lips, they stumble- Diverge With life, comes a change.

Why, my heart, do you love another soul? Why, my heart, must you hurt the other one's soul? Now, my heart, I see why you have fled me. Now, my heart, I think I should be quite dead.
Where now, are you my soul? What journey have you departed for, Leaving me behind to feel the absence? Where now, are you my soul? What skies do you seek, While I await in shades of grey?

Every day is spent imprisoned in my own body I try to change, but nobody ever sees me Wishing things would go my way, but knowing they never will I would like to welcome you to my hell
It seems to always start the same way, just like a cycle I might say. The way a bottle slowly fills up, drop by drop reaching the top until it can't take it no longer, it starts to suffocate in its own water,
I lay here writing the words I can't say And the longer my mind fights wondering and wanting to say hey- And the longer we go without a word, this becomes a never ending day

the sound of footsteps i dont know. the footsteps on my heart, on and off they go. In and out, up and down, they come from all different directions. The joy they bring passes with the grief of their deceptions.

I'm ready now Ready for your bullshit I can take this fight this battle this war This never-ending game of drawing circles while you hog all the pencils but I Have the eraser
I have a vase Of sad forget-me-nots On the bedstand Next to Emily Rose-wooden eyes See what mine still hide from me Behind the thread and the needle holes I know we still holds my memories
Bottled up with emotion sadness running deeper than the ocean hatred and love such a thin line between both sometimes it is the cause of maturities lack of growth i love you I do but these situations life throws makes it seem like I hate you feeli
Hidden cries behind sweet, innocent eyes Faint whimpers of mistaken trust Confusion from the hand that is held A future dried up in the dust
Where is the love? The tenderness of the heart where people join together. Arms all around and hands held. I miss the feeling of it And where has it gone? The place where I'm in, is all but hate and despair
I feel strong But I feel weak I feel proud, Yet I feel bleak I feel gorgeous And grotesque I feel pretty When I’m dressed I see fair girls But I wonder Are they really
Look around and see eyes staring. Wonder what they see when they look at me. Can they see what I feel or can they see the disguise i cover myself with. Do they see the confused and scared girl?
He took her hand and lowered himself to his knees, but the words couldn’t come out. He told himself, “All the practice was for nothing? No way!”

I yearn for a forever love A man that aint intimidated by me put me in my place when i aint acting right cause i do be bugging out sometimes
Wake me up Before I lose it all This nightmare's a little too real Pick me up I'm starting to fall Pretty soon I'l forget how to breath I'm not asking. I'm begging you now
i’m not sure if i like tea or coffee fruits or vegetables cats or dogs math or reading running or sitting tears or laughter gloves or mittens
I gave you all the love I had You were the only girl with the power to make me feel so sad. I want to hear you sing to me again But then All the memories rush back to me And the pain attached to them.
I am on my own, No one tells me where to go. So where do I go?
here we are all alone, each of us a dry, dead bone. NOTHING left to loVe or haTe a barren wasteland of empty fate
Every time I’m with you, I feel it building up. You know I’d never hurt you, So why not open up?
There was a time I thought there’d be A little thing called you and me And now I try and you don’t care But I can still feel something there You haunt my mind every day You plague my dreams but you won’t stay
So this is my first poem on here. What is it supposed to be? Is it supposed to be about me? Do I show who I am, As if my clothes are sheer? Or should I just go grab a beer.
Why do I chase after you? Someone who's nice, smiles brightly, even though you're not perfect-- you're so bright.
You could have held my hand you know? I wouldn't have minded. You could have held me longer than you did. You don't know what sweet sorrow your parting really is. You could have brushes my hair aside
The mind is a maze of mirrors. Every which way you turn you run into yourself. But which you is real and which is covering up the path that you must follow? Is that all that you are? All that life is?
Tell me, have you ever had to lie? Have you ever had to cry? Have you ever fought for approval of your peers? Have you ever tried to fight your fears? If you have, it’s okay. I will catch your tears.
All I can think is I don’t want to go there I don’t want to go there I’ve always refused to go there Tour there Talk about there Other than the dropping of a name or two
I thought I knew the road and where it leads; I came upon the fork and felt so sure, Until the trees in shade began to tease; My confidence was shook, I closed the door. My heart is closed and locked, I am afraid;
My paradise My sanctuary My place of saving When all else is lost A confusing mess An sweet escape From the brainwashing And self-harm The confusion I feel When you make me feel
Ice as black as coal, trees with black, brown souls walls caving in, and ceilings breaking down lost in a world of an upside down town looking for direction, introspection for correction,
Drowning in the confusion that is my soul. Begging for mercy, from this unknown path that I'm taking. Reflecting numbness, but I'm only searching for it, always calling out in the night.
Dear Ailurophilia, Sand spreads across the line of an unbelievable amount of time in which we we're cursed to feel unwanted emotions and travel a road so unworthy
I'm tired of writing all these letters to plead, hoping you become this man i need you to be; i see why it's my heart that you continue to lead, 'cause immature hearts and minds only make things bleed; for me
The Ocean pulls it’s body back and forth like my lungs that breathe in life. And my heart that drums it’s final beats. I’m sitting on a bulk of sand from the high tide line.
My heart longs for you, But its broken, Can it ever trust you? With you I could fly, Now both my wings are broken, I love you, But I'm scared to trust you, And so is my heart,
Who I am It’s hard to describe But something lies in between both eyes A vision to be greater More than me Bigger than the bigger picture More than free Who I am I may never decide
Which way to go, Which way to turn… Im so confused, Is it everything I should burn? Make it all brand new Start from scratch. Considering I'm lost, Is that my best match?
There's Something in the sky Just because the lights turned off when a car went by. There's Someone to share the pain Just because you heard a name in the rain.
Possibly destroying my own future But I can't bear to see those faces. If running from the people Who are supposed to always be there for me Helps me feel free Then run I shall.
