You’d been with her for eight years. And you wonder why I can’t always be with you emotionally. eight years is nothing to a couple months. She knows everything about you and she was your whole world for eight years.

You say I am a decent writerSo I write this one to youYou who loves me for all of meNot just the me that is nice and pleasantBut the me that is mean and dark and confused

I speak on fear, depression, and realization.  Success to me only comes when all three of these things plays together as one. The battle is all within yourself and will always be.

They say you spend your whole life rewriting the first poem you ever loved. With you, my dear, you were my first poem. I remember the way I said I loved you, I remember the way you shrugged. The way my heart was stolen.
SLAP! I didn't mean to upset you I'm sorry I don't know why I always have to ask so many questions. SHOVE! Down the stairs I'm falling
Raindrops on my window Teardrops on my cheeks. The pain is so strong that it is sinking in. I thought about calling you and pouring my emotions out, but there is so much to say I would have to shout.

What to do with all the hurt? When inside you're fit to burst. You're supposed to be so strong. You're supposed to not be wrong. Put a face that betrays the truth. Give an air of being aloof.  
I want to believe that everything you've said is true, but I just can't trust myself to trust in you. You've told me lies, you've made me cry. I'd stay up all night trying to figure out why.
When I cry it's in vain When lightning strikes the tame
I find myself lost as if I fell from a peak The mountain I stand on is no more Tumbling down a sea of diamonds – all unique Part of an avalanche, a moving floor
How badly I want it. Maybe it’s this time of year Maybe it’s my own conjuring, My own extrapolation My own imagined solitude. But it’s eating me from the inside out Devouring its way through my heart

I’m no good at making choices so I let my hands do the talking, Blocking my heart from letting out what its been calling. My back is pinned in so tight I can no longer feel my heart beat,

This day is drawing to a close, the night is coming near, And somewhere out there stars light up, illuminate my fear. It takes a dense, steel wrecking ball to break through love’s embrace,
Explosions break the darkness And we fall from the sky— Blown to bits. Pieces of each of us glitter As they float down, Tossed around by the wind, Ever so gently, Nearing the earth.
Being an aspie can be a source of misery or a source of pride, it’s all in the bearer’s perception. “What’s an aspie?” you might ask. It’s a term for someone who bears the rigorous condition of aspergers.

My brain comprehends your words Twisting and distorting the meanings. It only focuses on the negatives.    My heart hears your words,  Embracing and realizing their true meanings.

My bones hurt as they hit the bed. My stomach empty like a bitter morning from a nightmare. My tears burn as they meet my face. The rumbling in my heart scares me as it pounds me down.
  How many times will I  hear the same story of a  girl who saw a boy and  fell in hopeless, mournful love? How many times will I 
I will never look at you the same ever again. What you did to me, I will never understand. How dare you ever tell me you adore me! When now all you ever do is ignore me. I don’t understand how I could change your mind.
Loud were the sirens crying outand loud was the body that wanted to be let outWanted to be free and do whatever it pleasedNot knowing the regrets that it would reap.Loud were the warning bells that seemed to shout.

This feeling in my stomach, The weakness in my knees, The nervousness I feel, Maybe True Love is real. My tongue is tied, Words falling empty from mouth. The time becomes slow, yet

The words I hold back, Are the qualities that you lack, You want me to be ther for you, But your why when you are so rude, I wanted you to be that man for me, but I was to blind to see, You had another woman in our bed, Enough said, You are a sold

Her beauty doth shine as ‘twould make the sun Itself seem as though ‘twere but a mere coal. A match for her, there is never a one,
Sitting with the rain Holding my hands under the puddles Subconscious illusions Fading I see the rain stop The sun set and then the moon Compress, Explode.   As if the moon was glass

I was invited to an ideal girls' night out An idea suggested to me by the girl with flirtatious eyebrows but her pure spirit told me to bring a friend

As things get rough I find her head hangs low Eyes bellowed beneath the clouds his hands on her chest as a chain on his ankles holds him tight Her body is in a state of mind that nobody can feel

A journey. Long paths, twisting winding roads. Mountains and valleys. Scraped knees and weary bones. I'm parched and lost.

And its things like that which make me question: Why is it so soon and I’m already questioning. My gut is already right, I’m a Sagittarius.
My heart no longer smiles the way it use to It just sits there and stifles The feelings that it really wants to let out It holds back and waits Unwilling to express itself out of the anxiety

I can't decipher if it was love that caused me to be attracted to him Was it his cologne or after shave Was it his thug like mentality an his gentlemen facade That caused me to be smitten by danger

Red Fire
Uncertain, Silent, Words Crying, Pleading, Screaming unheard Black, emotionless tries Passed on unknowing Conversation dies Heat flat lines No beat. Fear shivers down spines
Left Unsaid There have been some words, that have been left unsaid. All, of which, have been bothering me, So darling, let's put these problems to bed.
Interrupted Solace in a Winter's Evening Every once and awhile I like to be alone I burrow in the confines of my memory And dart from conversations like a fish from glass
Talk about cliche I've got my heart on my sleeve. Unsure what to do Don't know where to go. You reeled me in like a little fish You've pulled me around like a puppet on a string
