Out in the city where th people throng, lay the spirit of nation, out in the hearts of those who protest lay justice, fervently,restlessy,endlessy demanding from us and for us
Sometimes, the hardest part about being heard Isn’t being heard It’s getting the word From your thoughts To your mouth And from your mouth To the outside world It all starts with a dot
Who do I want to be? A very complicated question. First, I suppose,I want to be a girl that's not lost in her own sea One that isn't conflicted with self repression I want to be one filled with laughter
It is wet and rancorous and my new leather shoes would feel the worst of it long before I got to class. I stopped, before exiting, to appreciate the mighty storm – and open my umbrella.
The future is a monster is a monster in my head, I can lose focus of the curriculum that I once though was a load of shipped work. The future is the demon that provokes my stress.
All I wanted was to feel wanted. I thought you felt the same way, but the feeling wasn't mutual. If anything, it probably never was. Out of it all, I was probably a piece of ass.
Day in and day out Your name pops into my head Memories of your touch, smell, and taste Haunt me at night Wishing and hoping you'd come back That you's realize that I still love you
Raw thoughts filled
Fragments of memories come back in flashbacks as I lay in bed at night. Pictures of happiness and hurt. Joy and pain. Love and loss. The good and the bad.
I've grown up around strong women. To be specific, I've been surrounded by strong black women. That doesnt make me strong though This made it hard for me to find myself. I wanted to be like them
Sometimes I want someone to hold me with no reason to just because you want to love me
Don't let go of me I'm like a canoe in this raging sea I'm trying to make it in this world But I just keep on getting hurled No one seems to understand They make me feel so bland
How could you say that you love your kids when you treat your
Things I want my daughter to know - feel comfortable and confident going a day without makeup. A day when you have errands to run or have to stop into work for a bit.
The tiny tears slide down her face Alone and hopelessly Searching for a single trace Of whom she used to be Carefree, innocent girl Untouched by the evil unseen Now corrupted by the world
You’re looking out your window tonight So many things running through your mind You feel like you’ve lost who you are You want to find your way back to the start But you can’t, oh no, you can’t
Am I not good enough for them?Is who I am not who they want me to be?They want me to be this plastic, perfect figure that I don’t seeAnd they need to know, they need to know
I’ve seen apart of me I didn’t recognize. Through my eyes I saw how my reactions to your actions, made me low, low point on the scale, I’ve inhale, what you’ve exhaled to me.
A great tree with massive boughs, Sends its roots to the center of the earth. It does not move or sprint about, But dreams of things in silence with mirth. A great tree with sturdy ancient trunk,
sitting in the broken land. surrounded by dead memories of lost friends. family and friends are all dead, the ties to my history have no thread. i lay motionless, cry towards beauty and sonnetts to the grave,
In this torturous classroom I sit in row 5, seat 3 and to my right in row 4, seat 3 sits the most beautiful boy I've ever laid eyes on. Every time we make eye contact I feel a rush of warmth
makeup is a breakup and makeup is a lie
I had a secret that I did tell I told the pen, it kept it well, But then I told it to mankind And my condemnation I had signed. On a page the words will stay Small and silent they obey,
This body is not an apology This blacked out mirror This blacked out skin This skin like shadows This shadow makes noise This "bitch don't make noise"
I feel like I am drowning, like I am suffercating under the silence, under the last breath I breathe
Are we a free people, a free country, with a truthful servicing of liberty and justice for all?
every night I rest my head,I rest it sometimes on a bed,my head is resting but my mind is racing,my mind is going so fast I feel like pacing,I have so much to think about,
Life, too often, is rushed. No time to waste, no time to relax No time to even say good morning " Tick-Tock " says the clock! Everyone's gotta be somewhere Rush, rush, rush Rush to school
The fact that evil is stronger than good is evil itself. Why must good be weaker than evil? Why must death me faster than creating life? Why must bullies be stronger than nerds?
It seems these days the only way to be considered for anything is to be a battered, broken, shell of a person. The scholarships, the colleges, they want survivors They want the best storyBut what about me?
In 2023, a ship called Mars One will depart from the surface of the earth and never return. It will fly forty million miles to a place where human kind has never set its heavy foot.
Welcome to the Theater of My Mind.
Does it matter that I come from a poor family, or that I am bi-racial? Does it matter that I went to private school, on tuition assistance?
Beating down bright upon me—oppressively, oh, the brute Insouciance all-encompassing within and around
I have this addiction.
My mind filled with so many thoughts Heart filled with hurt that won’t stop So young but forced to grow so fast No time to be a kid or dwell on the past Within an instant my life began to crumble
You’re not my friend You’re a frenemy You used my shoes My towels My clothes My Dial I thought you were true You only hang around cause
I want to die. For this feeling I can no longer bare. The rage within my soul has consumed my whole being. The terror and horror of hell has revived and rejuvenated in my soul.
She called upon me to aid her, to stop the crying. Her crying is a marathon runner who can never reach the finish line. I’m no savior, but I’m the only one left to care.
I am lucky. There are things that are mine that others don't have. Healthcare. Family. Home. Dreams. Car. Education. Freedom. Future.
You function, I function, Robots to the requirements of the world, we are. Expectations as well as realizations. We break, our mind reaches far. That unexpected change in fate Midnight coffee, stay awake.
My heart aches and breaks as you walk away Reaching out my hand in hopes that you'll hold it once more
Just because we sit alone doesn't mean we're sad. Just because we dont talk doesn't mean we're mad. Just because we dress wrong and not accordingly, See, we choose to resist conformity.
Why do I work here? I'm hungry, where is the food? What's the WiFi code?
My skin burns where your hands once were like acid on light flesh. I've taken four showers today to try to wash away the pain but your handprint stays on my porcelain skin.
yeah, yeah Life once felt simple and complete but now grown up nothing feels the same I always feel frustrated and angry life was never ment to be this way
your mind is a garden,blooming with rosy memoriesand wisdom whispered by wise men.tend it with gentle confidence,water it with pure self love.
Don't forget about what I did for you all the crap I put up with to make you happy all the tears I cried when you hurt me all the memories we created for all the world to see
It takes time to make a mind impervious to cold and kind. Not one to fail because I never try, knowing all too well it takes time to die.
Listen as I grow old the Gov's mask slips and expose a past. I learned so many things that concerns me. In all honesty this world is breaking apart. My poetry is picking up the debris.
I walked with my head down Noticing every crack in the ground In order to keep from falling. I walked like that for years Until the day I looked to hard at the ground And ran right into you.
Prisoner of Words Unsaid For so long For so long I've been a prisoner A life sentenced prisoner for a crime they committed for me Like Alicia Keys "I'm a prisoner of words unsaid
When the people who gave you life are also what makes you consider taking it, There is a problem. Every single night I brush my teeth in an attempt to wash away the sound of you Slamming the door as you leave.
From his majestic Office, he reads the anonymous letter... "There's alot of speculations going round About a tightrope walker balancing without a song. He shifts his weight from side to side
I love you more than words can say.
No thank to mani-pedis I'll pass on the spa Spend your paycheck on produce
Wasted freedom adjourned by the linguistically-challenged society. A wreckage in my brain driving me to the point of insanity, manicuring each segment to be
i want to live.
What makes my brain tick? It happens when my thoughts just click. Through my eyes, I can see A great big world in front of me. My mind helps me make the right choice To help me find my own voice.
When you realize that nothing you do matters to you, take a step back and do something that does. When you see someone struggling, respect them for their effort and thank the earth
Now before you decrease judgment, Heres some words yo
Usually things pop up in my mind But suddenly they disappear through time I always think I know what I want But sometime I don't I'm young, confused, and alone What do you expect coming from a youngan
As I sit here looking at the moon I wonder if you are too And for a second I consider Are you thinking of me As I am you?
Isn't it strange how a place a person or a belief can become so foreign or distant that you start to question if it ever existed as you thought in the first place?
Sun set after rise Gazed upon by tons of eyes Here, the sea line dies
If a boy sinks to his knees
As the night settles, it begins. Slyly, creeping deeper into my psyche Darkening, the rims of my thoughts. Slowly, swallowing my heart in captivity. As the shadows crawl, the creaking floor boards
I was born and you were four you looked to me as an enemy Never saw the blood we shared since we came from two of the same
My soul bleeds onto the paper with each word released from the pen in my hand. In a dark room. An empty room. Only me and the voice inside my head—or is it the voice inside my heart?
Trust me, you don’t want to know The thought that just flew through my head A game of quid pro quo with the status quo This cache of nostalgia makes my dread drop dead I keep craving for resolution
There is a countless number of thoughts in my head Some I share and others I hide away instead I have thoughts about love I have thoughts about hate
I have always been the one left out. I would speak, but i was never heard. I would stand up, but get slammed down. With all the unheard words and the put downs.
All I can see is long sleeves, lipstick stains and makeup masks hiding marked skin, chapped lips,
They call me a gift That when I was born i saved their life That Nikolas has left 6 months after the tragedy That I was born with a responsibility That I should be a light Here I am now,
The girl lies on a cot -- The girl with hauntingly beautiful green eyes. With nothing but a battered baby blanket to cover her emaciated body. Her feet peek out from beneath the sheet, bloody and broken,
You can find me where the dust sparkles in the window from the sun's rays You can find me- there I'll be hiding beside the curtain blending into the wall
When I’m lonely in a world of my own, I often think of you. I imagine the way you hair never fell into the right place and how that was my absolute favorite thing about you.
Why is it that mankind can never truly find happiness? It can be grasped for brief moments in time before it disappears once
I say I’m a writer, but how would they know When each line and verse I’ll never show? Each word loops endlessly through my head a catchy tune, not sung but said Still, the words can’t leave my mouth
Love can be a chore-My heart is made of steal
I just wish that I could be myself, you know?
"Roses for sale!" He said with a smile, But scoffs were only paid. "For your sister? Your brother? Your mother, Your lover?" But love, nowadays, Isn't shown in this way.
Why am I nor happy? I have such a big porch for me alone. I have the life that no one else owns. I have gold that no other holds. Why am I not happy? I have all I want, But something stands.
Not Stagnant By: Eric Turner
How can we forget, the endless times we cried because we were full of regret, We never meant to say the things we said, it was in the moment and we needed to clear our head, intentially no,
You didn't vote for him? You're discriminating. No, Im not. I just find his views incriminating. You don't have a right to carry guns but my body guards do. Did you just call me a terrorist because i don't think like you?
Tick, tock, Trillions of thoughts race through in an instant.
Like the eternal night And the ethereal day My mind cannot stop, Its brakes made of glass. Thinking consistently, Delicate matters only. Like ancient clockwork,
This war has no glory There are no heroes No knights in shining armor No sides Just yourself You hold the sword And you hold the shield You can ride off on your horse
Heart beating out of my chest As it calls to me I cover my ears but the sound increases It never leaves Always an echo I try to hide but there's no escape It follows me
My sanity hangs in the balance as I write. I fill the page with a world born of darkness and light. Of a universe centered at the very tips of my fingers. It flows from my mind in smooth streams of conciousness
Times almost up.
We're so young, In a world so old. We think we know what we want, And what we need. We form dreams, And run after them. However, Sometimes while we're running,
Sculpted from minerals and then the spirit flows,
Father.. Can you hear me? Does my words matter? My mind runs with questions that you left unanswered. Left alone..Confused.. Unwanted.. I thought you loved me? I can only be lied to so many times.
"It’s fine, don’t worry about it." Are always the first words to come out, "It’s all in your head, you’ve got this." While wanting to spill your lunch on the floor. Hands shake and arms quake,
I sing and feed my soul. I dance and sing at my pleasure, Turning and observing the stars in the sky. Counting more than my seventeen years, deep wonder fills my eyes.
My thoughtsGo crazy. They wander,They go in circlesMaybe that's the reason for the blackCircles underneathMy eyes.My eyesStare out the window as my thoughtsUnderneathThy skin wanders.
Why is life so unfair?
I wonder what it’s like to go through the death of a loved one. A lifelong friend, a sibling, a parent, a lover. One day here, the next gone. Maybe there were warning signs, maybe there were none.
I watch from inside as the afternoon breeze flows through The lush green leaves of the overhanging trees out front I hear from my desk the hum of airplanes flying high And the snap of the flag in the sky to the side
Stand Up Wake up with that dreadul feeling.
Peak into my mind, you'll see madness You'll see me trying to make things add up ME, trying to cope with this inner sadness My dangerous mind Its thoughts unruly They pray for my demise
I waited for you ever since you set a smile on my face. I will wait for you as my heart races. I want to say "I Love You", but I am scared. Maybe that is why I think the world is unfair.
like the flower, so blooms inspiration. roses only grow from fertile clay... thoughts, from a fecund imagination. insights spring from fruitful contemplation while new buds grow with the sun's warm rays.
A weed in a lawn full of grass. A disturbance an annoyance Ugly and fowl.
Love isn’t a voluntary feeling. It doesn’t allow any breaks or rest. But love allows healing,
Oh my dear, I can hardly wait.Soon we two shall dance with the teasing belladonna hoping to ensnare us bothYou have been too long without a partner, but you have been beautiful
You’re so mesmerizing; you’re the definition of desire. My heart throbs at the sight of you. You’re layered with sensitivity and covered in morality, which defines you.
I don't like it. Not at all, I don't appreciate this. This immense hatred, and dislike. That is all towards me. Why? I must ask why... Why am I the target, of all, Your hatred?
I’ve been thinking a lot lately. About what I want with my life. What ending. About myself as an older woman. Scared of my own reflection.
Remember when I made her smile? Lips parted like you haven’t seen for some time. Those thoughts The ones that plagued her mind. Those that caused her to pick up the yellow bottle. Empty it.
I look at you, And all I feel is disgust. You mock me, Capturing me in your everlasting frust-stration. I look at you, You mentally batter and abuse. Do you enjoy it?
You said you would always be there. You said you would never hurt me. You said you would always protect me. You said you would always be in my life, No matter what. You said you cared about me.
I feel as if we are a family of trees with no water Slowly dying from being so dry and broken down When is the sky going to be bright and yet full of darkness for a shower to bat us?
Usually (8) hours of sleep should be enough-
I am living but I'm not alive Everynight I let myslef cry I go to sleep hoping to never wake up I am living but I'm not alive I've gone through things and I wish I died I wake up but I'm still dead
Nothing I do can make me forget you, Everyday is your smile on my mind and your touch on my cheek, your eyes on mine as if we look away we'll go blind.
Have you ever lay silently still and listened to the sound of an orchestrated piano solo play peacefully in your ears and wonder how something seemingly so simple can be so beautiful?
A deep breath, inhale..exhale, a deeper thought follows.
As she sits to write, so many thoughts cloud her subconscious.
I am stuck in a very confined place Where there are decisions I need to make But no one can understand my true face As I proclaim out loud “it’s a piece of cake” With these thoughts my head spins frantically
l Laying amongst these sharp blades
Momma told me nobody would understand me... I remember on day in the black light momma told me to old on tight...
Grief is a war.
Inside my head, I mean a little more. Inside my head, Personality is at war. I dream to be outgoing, Both pretty and sweet Everyone wants to be my friend When I'm inside my head.
You treat water better than your own blood.I might as well be mudAm I a disappointment to you?I don't feel our relationship is trueBirth certificate says your my motherBut seems like your just another
To have a forgotten dream, it's like to have forgotten your way,
Yes I did it, now it's time to go and get my recognition,
I always wanted to bethat girl;too brilliant to resisttoo pretty to dis,that girl that stops trafficwalking down the street.That's the pretty girl, I wanted to be
My mind constantly clouded by her thoughts of despair.
Dear, (Fill In the Blank), I decided the “check the box that applies to you” on the form, was not for me. So I’m writing over the boxes. I filled out my address, my name, typed in the codes,
It isn't just 26 letters put together
"Why must love feel like a heart attack"?Some may sayCausing our hearts to sputter one final beatThump, thump, shhDifferent types of love lause different types
I miss him
Breaking down the sullen streets the things at night that no one sees the bravely fought, the coward won the poor old man who gave his son this nation's heart, its duty calls
Somehow I always end up failing. No matter how hard I try there is always something Something that prevents the desired outcome i always hope for I've always had this problem Not being able to talk right
My nail polish is chipping, andI wonder if the walls of myinsides are the same colorof sea greenbecause I feel a little sick,because I feel the paint peeling,piece by piece,my false peace in pieces.
Create, created This is how I think Imagine, design, plan, do Thoughts then become things
Where has the privacy gone? From homes separated by a large canvas Of green grass and long fences Now walls sit not a feet from walls Where voices can clearly be heard And privacy has dissipated into the
Tick, tick, tick, Tock, tock, tock, the way in which my brain, gives way to thought, thought, thought. One notion to another, associations then connect, it brings about my fears,
I mean I realize when I'm writing that it's really
Think. Right now. What's on your mind?
whatever I think becomes what I do yet those things which I wish never come true. the sun on this morning lies bright on the faces
The day slowly darkens so have my thoughts Your presence inviting but not inviting enough I run after you and stop right and then I turn around and forget you again
A world with and without you The perfect hue of your eye color
I am holding a bladeUp to my wrist In the knife all I see is lies upon liesBut then I see youAnd your little blue eyesYou say put the kinfe down AuntieOr I will crySo I put down the kinfe
Abandoned once again Find strength, confidence, when? Smile when you're sad Cry when you're happy Nothing makes sense thoughts overlapping Long gone from this world Heart broken, lost, hurt once more
I don’t know what life is..
Do not show jealousy in the light of a mischievous mirror For that same mirror will glare back at you in madness.
These walls are too white These lights are too bright What am I doing with my life? I could be out there In the warm summer air Where has my courage gone?
I just heard the saddest story
The only thing she's held accountable for is the heart she's mended
Close eyes, see your dreams Close mind, feel our beams Hover night, why it is so long One shake, one shiver The night, will be cold Inisght, none will be seen Tickle Tickle Tickle
I wonder more and more how the world worksSome simple things like how those girls twirkAnd those big question of whyLike why did you never get to say bye?I wonder am i making you proud
My emotions have change for the ever more its become so much more. The obstacles i face that is in my way, seems not to be a problem, oh how my life has change, with you right next to me,
It seems as though I'm often taking steps backwards,
As a baby, I laid and cried in my crib Observing the sunlight peering through my window
Sometimes, in times when I find myself in need of it; I stand, or sit, or lay, just... staring. Staring at the walls, the ceiling, the floor,
What I Hate I hate when people discriminate I hate it when some people be invading my space What I Hate I hate when people pick in their nose in front of me
Long legs sprawl across a desk, And eyes gaze tiredly at nothing. What is life? I wonder as I nibble at the end of my pencil, And the subliminal voice whispered in my brain.
according to my tattoo artist my paper is skin thin my skin is paper thin. thin skin means more scarring means shitty tattoos. i am not capable of holding ink.
you press roses into your wrists and hope the sweet smell mends the broken skin back together. plant daisies in the ashes of your burnt out thoughts, this is all too much.
is it a heaviness? do you feel like you can't breathe? like honestly there is nothing much keeping you alive and you don't know why. it is just a sadness that goes into your bones and makes it hard to get up in the morning.
"your body is the house you grew up in" he used to tell me, "all the paint may not be fresh and there are cracks in the doors but they make you more comfortable to live in, my dear"
i never had your heart, you never placed it in my hands. but i just want you to know that i could handle it. not that you'd ever decide i'm strong enough to, but just in case you ever wondered.
I write because it is my tactic of escape From this cold world filled with violence and rape
Am I doing the right thing? Does it really matter if I hurt someone? Honestly I could do not care how they feel. I do what I want when I want to. No regrets, no hesitation.
I am a scapegoat
The pieces never fit to begin with. Given fragments of things that don't match; they weren't even close... Wanting rain for every moment, lost in a place with no way out,
The cold wind feels dead and grim but the warmth of her arms awaits him. He moves foward as if chaising a dream.
He is often my 3 AM thoughts and lie there hoping that I am his.
At first I thought that I was the only one It felt as if a part of me were gone And I did not know why So at nights all I did was cry What was the cause? After so long why now?
I'm the kind of person who worries about leaning my seat back in airplanes.
Everyone around me is so happy,I smile with them
Thoughts zing here and there But I don't know exactly where I ponder life and all that matters What if everything shatters I see life change all around You can see it in the trees and on the ground
continuing to search for solutions for the involuntary kill all similar triangles dead-eyed squinting in traffic public television blasting from the T.V.
Thoughts are Drowning me In my head A pool Of lies And conspiracies Not stopping Until I have sunk But I know how to swim Memories are Burning me
Words escape me when I think too deeply for far too long. Sometimes I contemplate whether the things I inspire are wrong. A perfection to acheieve in the world of precision.
So many competitors, not enough prizes I hope to seek a win in some of my suprises My ambition to win is higher than most Although I've been passed by as if I'm a ghost
I don't quite know If the masks I wear Fit Me. I'm not sure if the
I would kill for a pill that would make me feel, So happy inside, Fill me with pride and confidence, If someone offered it to me, I'd happily agree to take it with me,
Tonight I have never seen the stars so bright So vast, so full of light I lie on my back, a frail, pale hand reaching toward the heavens Counting the stars, numbering in sevens.
My thoughts painted the mid night sky red and vibrant colors to show them i still hope.
She walks by him and he notices her, She turns to face him He smiles sweetly at her and notices her radiant beauty She smiles back and she notices his charm Her eyes are like emeralds His like sapphires
STOP. Stop doing what everyone thinks is cool. Do you... Don't make fool.
They live inside my mind take shelter in all its corners weave themselves in my veins and race each other to my mouth dodging the filters of my teeth they slide down my tongue
Sure, a cr
If I had the power, I would help a baby bird to fly. I would teach it how to use its wings. I would catch it if it fell. I would make it believe in itself. If I had the power, I would help the mother on minimum wage.
There I was, yet there I wasn'tFor they neither saw me or knew where I hidThe shadow's hostage; the dustmite's captiveI feared "I'm forgotten" despite what I didAlas, they still call me
This girl, she lives a normal life everyday, she wakes up, gets ready and goes to school. She is physically there but not mentally or emotionally.
Doth thy wonder, In thy sleep, Of a place where dreams come true, And your heart be forever at ease?
Steady trying to feel in this void. I find myself clenching the sheets, feeling it's texture. Smooth you would've thought... but, it's been layed in so long there's a change. Not one too noticable, but one only the owner knows of.
Mind over matter but I question who do I matter to, now a days I prey for better days but I feel as if the whole world has dropped the thought of me ever existing, remembering reoccurring events that's in prisoned my mind is captivating my will t
Can you feel the weight of my bones? Can you taste the sound of my thoughts? Please, I beg of you, listen and listen closely because you will hear nothing as sad and nothing as joyous as my thoughts for you.
I struggle to put the words in my head Down on paper. Words hold power, and mine would stir The minds of those who thought they knew me. Other worldy, inter galactic thoughts.
My tears of sanity Grinded by hell Drag through bones and dust Continuous battles Thrown to the ground
I was once toldThat we are all made of stardust.Some doubt this theory,But I can testify of its truth.
she exhales a barely audible whisper dissipating slowly through the drifting currents of the wind and with that solitary spoken word hardly a sound that
Though her lips say she doesn't, her eyes say she still does love him. She looks at him like she looks at no one else. It's cliché, but her eyes do sparkle and light up
each day I think about what you would say ifI told you'I miss you.'how you would react ifI grabbed your hands andlooked into your eyes like we used to do. where your arms would be if
Hollow Ghost of Red Heart Ominous with frantic rage Yet vindictive under the Vail Luminous as starlight nights
Breathing Just Fine Held under water Gazing upon him We fight for a way out The sea blue runs black
It's nine A.M.. You're awake, but you don't leave your bed because you have so much to do,
Parfois, il est vraiment difficile de dire avec vous,
I've lived a life that's safe. Free of rejection, and what come's with it...
soft and furry try not to scurry sizing up a lion we are not buying no need to freak the point is bleak we live among you its true the name you gave us
I don't really know if my thoughts stay in my headThe thoughts that find me while I sink into my bedThey corner me, distract meNever leaving me a day
Days, Weeks, Months, They pass. And I wait. I wait on you. I wait on a FaceTime, A call, Some word. But you don't call. You don't FaceTime, You send no word.
I believe that once I was a beautiful being A being meant to live amongst the stars Worshipping one God and helping nature also praise Him I once believed I could've moved mountains,
Homeless individuals sleep with dreams of what they used to be Now they have moved on leaving the new generation drowning sea to sea No education, no temptation, to get a dream fulfilled
The time has come, my choice is made This life is cruel and humanity has no hope
I've been told these same things before But never quite in this way
I can't tell the difference between my dreams and reality anymore Everyday I wake up and yet I'm never really here I find myself living within the parallels of a world that loved me unconditionally
I've gotten so used to the rain that I hardly feel it anymore It's liek a friend giving sweet, sweet caresses Letting me know everything is all right The cobble stone sidewalks that trip me on my walk remind me
All of my cells exploded and were remade from starlight
I sit and I stare intense sunlight fires through the slits of my squinted lids Like blinds I shutter out the most of it, and trickling down are little specks of dust Closer I look
Calling my name a thousand times Until I focus Look in the mirror Tell me what you notice
I’m that girl That’s a fly on the wall. That girl that tries to do good things But doesn’t get noticed at all. I’m that girl that no one sees when her friends are near
It is strange that I had never touched a cigarette until I had remembered how the taste would linger in my mouth after I had kissed you?
I lie here, here alone In silence, sweet silence. My thoughts go Ever on, ever on
Like the rising excitementfor a special daysoon to come,And the first dayI held a puppy.Like the butterflies flutteringaround in my stomachon the first day of school,
I've been known to think endlessly of the sun, burning so hot it feels like hellfire setting my heart aflame and searing through my veins. to obsess over the future,
I try to find myself, but I've been lost for forever. It's like I'm going in a circle so you'd think I'd know better. I'm somewhat lost in a trance, I can't find myself. Took 34 pills disregarding my own health.
The sickled sling which cast doubts beckons from the blackened light. An inevitable dream that awakens me abruptly, haunts my ever waking moment.
The light flashes. Blinks, constantly, in the dark room.
What we wanted to be so badly as a child Has slowly become reality What we yearned for with our friends, Creeped up on us without warning I, was 5 small and blind to the world and life
Everyone, everywhere love me, desire me Let me be in all of your wet dreams and fantasy men, women, all alike I need to feel loved and wanted. if I wasn't so careful I would allow
Could you in that dense mind of yoursHave ever dreamed a world so greatSo filled with beauty and passions
The people act like they know me. Act like they know what it's like to be "free". Freedom? What a fucking joke. Locked inside the bars of my own mind, rattling the cells but no one hears me.
What a tremendously frightening sight, I try to contain my furious might, As I look up to the stars in the night, I realize that I am nothing. I see water cascade down the rock with mold,
I don’t understand where this is going. Where are you taking me exactly? The way I see it, This has become an endless cycle Repeating itself, Leading to a dead end each time.
the good definitely die young
This is the name you were born with,
I think about it every time, It's all I think about, How to kill; and when to kill, Knife of rope? I search for a blade to slit the ever flowing blood; cascade,
If I suddenly disappeared, No one would notice.. If I slipped away for a year, No one would care. So the point in being here ?? None given. No point of existing. No point of living.
I can't look at you smiling Laughing with you is confusing My best friend such comfort But I feel so unsafe now Your touch so overwhelming To smile, sigh, flinch, or cry I desire your grip and kiss
I wait and I falter, I'm going to suffocate, unable to breath, shaking, I cry silent tears but they make an impact, rushed away, well I tried to hold it at bay, but my conscience made me unable,
Loneliness is such a bitter-sweet word Who else to you know better than yourself? The more you're alone, the more you know About what makes you tick. Yet, what if there's things best unknown?

I Am Self-Discipline. Brilliance. Dedication. I Am Beautiful. Young. Emancipated. I Am Success. I Am Blessed.
Innocence captured by the hands of evil, A life stolen, that can never be returned.
If, I had only awakened only to see the one I have been so desperately and passionately Been waiting to embrace, To let known as it has always seen Not as it has always been perceived
My heart burns hottest flames blue My body sweats being in the sun My mind's lost my heart's empty All my emotions now disperse For now my heart hurts A flash of an image And my mind suddenly works
Something is missing, Each day that passes it is like I am breaking just a little more. My head spinning Thinking of all the memories. It is very easy to get lost in my own mind. When I look for a way out,
In all my 19 years,Through fears, cheers, and massive clears,I would have never imagined I'd be sitting here mirrored.
Dont believe everything that reaches your ears. Living day by day with all those fears. Ever falsehood that mocks you. Every whisper that wipes the smirks from their faces.
I wake up and fall asleep to the same thing on my mind Unfortunately, this something does not go away with time. These thoughts are the farthest things from being kind
It sucks to be alone Rather be alone than with deal with fakes Bestfriends??? I'm not sure they exist Not talking to many people Is something very rare Having to deal with things alone
I once met this girl, She was always boucing along happily, Playing without a care in the world, She had friends and extremely great family,
I wander lonely around, As I watch the world move as fast as lightning. I watch those that fall leisurely get up and move on, unbound, While I'm stuck in the black hole I once found shiny.
Life is all stick and stone. Looking out across recent life's sea, Or shall I say looking in, I'm looking at what used to be. I'm not excluded from that life and its kin.
Intrigued by your mystery, captivated by your suspense, but you're Forbidden. Like eve nothing can stop this desire, you radiate Temptation.
As I sit staring at the "fasten seatbelt" light overhead
I want to go deep in your thoughts and explore every inch of your mind
I feel so alone. I could just cry
One day she'd be happy And the feelings that once made her cry Would be filling the words with memories
I feel cold. Colder than someone should feel. I want to be alone All the time What is there to live for? There is no point Without love, life is pointless

A rose, but one, none other rose did I have, A rose, one rose, and this was a wondrous creation, One rose a rose that brightened earth and sky, One rose, my rose, that sweetened my breath and air,

An artist’s mind is often swallowed by indigenous thoughts. Trying to balance ones conceptions on a fine thread.
I had yearned for so long I had waited for too long I died inside for too long no love no compaasion no warm embrace not even a tender touch quiet nights desperate mornings
I have these words swirlingaround, all my thoughts twirling. I rarely have a chanceto let these pieces sit, to dance. Because the very moment Ilet my thoughts be, for a fraction of a
In the silent waves she saw herself, Lost and confused, she cried for help. Through the screams and moans that came tumbling out, The distorted images that filled her with doubt. No longer could she stand alone,
Sometimes I just lay on my bedThoughts and memories swarming in my head.I try to remember the good times I've hadBut they somehow slip away, always making me mad.
It feels like I been here before I feel familar with this scene these words theses actions I feel like its on everyones minds thoughts lips tounge, its been in every corner of the world this feel to familar yet it has no shape, nor organic matte
Sometimes I feel like I’m all alone. Sometimes I feel like I’m a stone Sitting on the bank of a river Waiting for someone to push me in. I could sink to the bottom Wouldn’t make a splash
Where are you going, I can't find you, where are you going, I just trusted you, Where are you going tonight. I just wanted you, and I just needed you, I am waiting, I am alone,
My life is like a bad fairytale. Dragons lurk in every cave, ogres in every shadow. When I get to the place where the castle should be, what do I see? The evasive palace has escaped me.
I want to love you for forever and a day. Til the sun comes down, and its time to lay. Til, the wind blows and the seas roar. I wanna be with you, but dont forget theres one more.
My blood ran cold as he looks at me,i shiver as his breeze past me, i look apon his face and i worry... why is this i wonder?
Hey Mr. Principal, Hey Mr. Smith, I hope you sit comfortably – On your plush office plinth, With all your private accolades – That no one could care about, To the varsity trophies –

The day it rained diamonds crowds flooded the streets, but riots broke out, and all feel to their knees. Then mixed with the shine, came the dullness of blood.
I feel like I’m one dimensional I feel like I’m the only one who sees how I see I feel like the harder I try to be exceptional The more flaws are pointed out to me I’m scared of what’s ahead

All the cliques laugh away While I sit and watch Wondering where my friends are Wondering where you are Wondering why distance keeps us apart. The teachers will lecture
We walk the same path
I asked a girl, who had red hair, what it meant to love, We talked for hours, endlessly, the characteristics of our beloved. Compassion and care, with honesty and trust, The fire of passion turning seclusion to dust.
I cry when I don’t write because I am unable to speak.
She closes her eyes and sees nothing.
Dont we come across a wonder Every now and then? I mean shouldnt we just write them in a book We should - No we shouldnt Thoughts are meant to be kept in mind No where else than our mind
Grasping for air that my lungs desire as i pull the tear drops back inside Camoflaging the dark clouds that hover above me When will you acknowledge the darkness that surrounds my inner walls?
God you're amazing I think I told you this before
You clenched at my chest, For a sweet rational moment. Heart drop. Bottom rock. The bitter grin Made my face numb like gin. The only Substance That can Be Absorbed
Stretching your own skin. Laying on your side. Turning pages on an ebook. Reading about the baby. Reading your way into motherhood. Passing by the years go by. Wondering where innocence has gone.
Be my sleeping guard The soldier of my dreams Hold me in your arms Wake me when I scream. Be my protector of uncontrolled unconscious thoughts Lead me through these things I've fought

Have you chosen to speak to a man with a crown on his head but rags on his feet?an optimistic mind so devine, however benign,for ideas are mere conceptuality,far from reality.
There is no good morning when I sit in this class at 7am I don’t give a care about what you’re sayin How would listening to you rant help me Achieving a dream, is this how it’s supposed to be?
We’ve all said it, We’ve all heard it That easy little phrase to use when you're hurting Two words, two syllables. I’m Fine.
Oh shitty shit shit who stands upon thee front class. Who do you think you are? perhaps an ass? One who plants stress in my interior and who thinks is superior. I yell enough is enough!
You’ve Got Mail I remember the movie well; Full of incomparable romance, Soul-mates of a sort Long since found
You’re afraid of what could happen So you constantly keep up a wall You are in a constant battle But aren’t we all?
Gravity is irresistible. I want to stay away, But this concept is not unmistakable. It must sustain on the bay. I feel defenseless In my naked soul. As I am relentless
I am blind to people’s ignorance, However ignorance is bliss. And I still have tolerance, As I wait for an aching kiss. I am dumbfounded By his beauty. And yet it is astounding
Light growing darker, Creeping in on those who are begining to surrender. The mind is over drawn and at some points sinister. Lofty weights hang from the heart,
This is a forum of confessions, my first impression leave lasting impressions, my expressions aren’t always impressive, so my expressions are in question but for the record my expression comes in different forms in the feeling I hoard
Kindly turn and walk away, Abandoned thoughts have gone astray. Images allude feelings once had, Timid eyes have now gone bad. Looming clouds that hang overhead, Yerk the soul about things unsaid.

I try so hard, even when I feel I have made some progress It is for naught. My line is corrupt.
I dream at night, as we all do I'm at a loss of all control of my mind, lost in my dream. The darkness is suffocating as it engulfs me entirely, Physically, emotionally, mentally.

You know zero things. Hi, did you attend college? You're actually hindering my learning experience. Your voice makes me cringe. I copied the homework.
Being the first person in my family to persue College is a blessing. Knowing that years ago many African-American people weren't allowed to go to school or learn, is a lesson to be taught.
Darkness cascades over a cliche moment of loneliness. Circulation fails and my hands go numb, as I stare at a bright screen watching the rest of the world go by at 2 past witching hour.
Feel sick to my stomach...Just want to throw-up... Trying to stay positive, but real, as well... Seeing things I dislike...Thinking about things that are out of sight, but still in the mind....
What do you do when all of your fears come true? When you want to run and hide But the only place to be alone is in your mind You take out a pen and paper & write as you cry
. . . As of now I'm sitting here in my bedroom thinking Of the truth behind the lies and the games It's such a shame that I'm hurting deep within of the bones that hold my frame What is there to do now but to wait . . . .
How she tells me she is honest,I can only nod, uneasy inside.She let me say what was on my mind,And, listening back, I became fonder.My once hardened wall broke down,Leaving only the opportunity for freedom.
we live in a world of constant contradictionopinions with unknown recognitionconstantly looking over our shoulderquestioning those we know won't listena world of true infidelity
This world is so shallow That my rain boots weep To compensate For the lack of depth In puddles they encounter.
Feeling is so overrated. So I've decided not to do "that" anymore. "That" is like licking the pages of a cookbook, Stupid and silly.
That melody, that melody, that haunts my wretched brain,It fills my dreams by night it, it follows thought by day.That melody, that melody, its source I think of in vainIt is ever with me, whether I sit or stand or lay.
Blue is red Red is green My thoughts are mud Mud is dirt Save for me What you have And I shall save for you Things I do not even have Be careful, Be careless
What is life? Why am I not brave? Where is my self-confidence? Why am I so afraid? Will I pass this test? Will I prove that I’m better than the rest? How did I end up here? When will I leave?
Strained thoughts fly through my mind Like cracks in the pavement. Each line deliberate and Jagged. I stare at my hands that are Holding a pair of scissors. I turn to face the mirror.
Now all is through, the battle is over, The en’my retreated and gone. The faint bugle calls still heard from afar; In the distance the fifes and drums. Nearly all is still – deathly still,
Can't. I just, I just... Can't.Now there's no one around to hear this rant,and even if there was, I wouldn't let them.
Every day I turn myself around, Try on someone new, It scares me to think That this is who I am Unique flaws and fears, I know that I am few. A rare case, they say, A different sort of person

I think in differnet places. Calculus is in the crinkled skin of my forehead and tight at the apex of my scalp Marching is in my bones and meaty joints Music is in my eyes and mouth
Everyday I'm trying to move on Memories with you keeps haunting me Peace, when will it come? To the day when I can forget You were my everything So much for your pretty lies
How long will you mourn me, Not at all, it's not your concern For if you were to mourn me It would make my heart burn Feel the cold wind surround you Enjoy the embraces of new lovers
They think it's easy Easy to think so much Information consumes one Like bees on honeycomb Where do all these thoughts Originate Pulled from thin air Circulating from mind to mind
He has been walking along this blinding, stony path for quite some time. The sun strains his eyes, and the stones hurt his feet. Every so often, he trips along his way. Every so often, he stays down where falls.

I am leaving my roots. / Off to the prison I go. / I am leaving my home. / Off to the vast unknown. / I am leaving the love. / Off to where hate will roam. / I am leaving the hugs. / Off to where I'm alone. / I am leaving myself behind.
Your life is mapped out onto a map of fateDestined to never miss a dateAlthough as you move forward details shift
Sea fog lifting, billowing, moist morning mist. Slug trail shimmering, faded asphalt. Quiet, calming, claustrophobic cellar smell. City alleyway, sunrise street scent.
If I say anything, would you be shocked that I spoke? Yes I may be quiet and shy but what is the problem? I just don't have much to say...why judge? Why judge the fact that I'm quiet? Would you like for me to speak as loud as the eyes could see.

I was told to write a poem, a poem describing myself. Myself is like this poem forced to be written a certain way. Not too long, but not short sometimes funny, happy, and sad.
Thoughts flood the mind in ample quantities. They provide attention for the unknown. They give power to reason and to imagine. Thoughts give the power to form or understand.
Who am I ? Sometimes I'll just stare in the mirror in front And I'll cry cause that girl I see Isn't happy, with herself Growing up, without a care The world seemed so full of love
I often find myself listening to my own mind I hear it think And register emotion I find it hard to control It is fascinating And frightening.

Did you ever wish you can turn back time To that one scene in your life. When listening to your head just didn’t seem right?
I try hiding from the darkness that your memories hold, later I embrace it for it's the reason why I am strong. I try running from the pain caused by my own shed blood,
BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!I wake up to my alarm going off...another day,another scar. I slowly get out of bed and set to my morning chores.I take a shower, get dressedthen I put on the darkest make up,to express my feelings. I skip breakfast...
We go so far to find we are alone.As I wander the faculties of my mindI come to the conclusionThat time is the pinO' self-destruction When I lie at nightMy subconscious mind takes flightI journey to planes on astral connections

I think if your lips pierced mine again, I’d fall back into old habits. It would be unfortunately fine with me. The way your blue eyes made my mind spin, Sent shivers of pleasure down my spine.
Pen Paper Black on white Flick of the wrist A moment’s goodbye Swimming in my own mind I can get lost in this world Other’s voices, other’s own ways
In a large round fishbowl- trapped in this world. Fed lies and sold to whomever would buy. I see things that are out of reach- like the caring souls that look on in pity- that don't have the means to save me.
The passion that leaked was spilled by led, The words able to form what's been left unsaid. There are times I wonder how it all began, Though I'm sure it was because of the age of man.
