You give me butterflies in my stomach, Sometimes there's so many I feel I need to vomit. You smell like a childhood memory, I'm not sure which one- it all gets so blurry.
Driving up the mountain just to see the sunrise I saw something that really caught my eye I saw the trees that stand proudly in the summer And I couldn´t help but say they reminded me of her

Instead of giving me a necklace Made up of his hands We sit in his Grand Cherokee And listen to our favorite bands
We had no plans and began to drive Into the small town that had tried to hide From a paper map, hung on the wall it would seem to be fields that only stretch on
You don't need more food... You should probably get a small... You should go for a walk... You should cover your stomach... Why aren't you speaking to me? Why do you always sleep?
Trapped in his own asylum Letting fumes take hold of his lungs Booze takes over his brain Like a video control game. Midnight thoughts Rake at his mind Like jubilation Being exiled.

When you’re young, you’re invincible There are no consequences You drive too fast, slurp too many shots, and run faster than your legs want to go
Do you ever get that feeling The feeling of wanting to fly But your wings are broken Every word unspoken Do you ever get that feeling The longing desire to run But your legs are paralyzed Your nerves are tranquilized Tell me the truth As my so
She’s looking at him and he’s looking at her And neither of them will speak to each other Over dinner there is only silence and the Quiet clinking of glasses and mushy chewing
When she flipped her hair,
Singing with The Smashing Pumpkins at sunset. Slumberous teenagers sinning on swing sets. Soul mates trapped in sundripped snapshots. Sipping a strawberry shake- two straws.

We thought honeysuckleswould turn us golden like lemonade, andwe could drink from the caverns in our hands or the grooves of our fingers,
I wonder if love is like, Dancing in the wind,
When you miss that boy And your nights are derived of joy Do you ever stare at the stars And wonder where you are? What you are doing here With a heart and mind so unclear And a Destiny destroyed by work
(I am who I am as a result of who I am not) I am not the girl my parents thought I would be

I am merely an average girl with a passion for fashion, Photography is life, And so are filters. Realistically, I am a simple girl without filters, Or maybe, a beauty-queen who needs a little edit.
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.
Flawless Dancer The lights brighten and the curtain rises. I stand motionless... Shaking.
d the ability to get a glance at the figure of the physique under the black veil I've cast upon myself, I applaud.
i’ve been counting all the bones
I am different. At times, even belligerent
I know I’m unwanted, Yet I still try To find the one Whom would die For me and make me feel
The print has faded From the movie ticket of our first date, Just as our love has done. I still think about you

Too many nights my mind wanders travelling to where my lost possessions are now. Ordinary belongings. A blue hoodie. Hairties. Pencils and pens. Then instead of wandering to unknown destinations,
Rooms filled with a couple handfuls of angsty teens waiting for the next band to plug in and tune, sweat dripping from the collective brow of the future of society, the new movement;
Baby Girl!! What are you doing?!! Do you care about your life? Being a mother isn't easy Being a single mother is harder Being a single, young mother is damn near impossible.

To you whom-- has my heart I seek in you, my whole desire. But she punctured you, thy dart. we speak, my love, in quiet words. with words we must not leak for she will come and tarnish you
Sweatpants, t-shirt, hair tied in a knot, fuzzy socks, cozy blanket, she wears them a lot. Laptop on her leg, slurpee on her side, slouching on a pillow, in her messy bed she resides.
You were the best thing that ever happened to me; I love you, Michael.
I want to like to unlike you. Rid my skin of the craving of yours on mine. Take out the thoughts of you that linger in my mind For they slowly incapacitate my mental abilities. You entered my world by chance

Delicate is that fancy cell phone held, that sharp bottle sits, that youthful face drives.
Once upon a time there was a girl
Tell me why I feel like I'm slowly slipping away from you When we haven't even been together for long I just feel like I'm not good enough for you I feel like I can't be the girl you dream of me to be But I do try
I'm slipping. You make me so confused sometimes. I'm still trying to figure out if you're good for me. You take my breath away. But, don't I need to breathe? I'm confused.
You're teaching me things every day. I learn more about you: The things you like, And the things you don't like. It's all very interesting. You're a very unique and special person to me.

I dreamed of you last night I dreamed that you were with me all through the night I dreamed that you held me close and never let go I dreamed that you whispered in my ear And told me that you loved me

The welling tears form a layer of haze from the outer to inner corners. I hold my breath hoping that the liquid will recede like a wave returning to its base from shore.
Stop trying so hard And just relax Take each day slowly And give love back Life is short And terribly long Painfully bitter Yet a beautiful song
My version of entertainment is not watching a family fight. It is not watching a man's life fall apart. It is not watching a girl flip over a table Not is it watching a girl get punched in the face.

I write a poem; a verse; a page in my diary, To calm this fire and rage. Cause there is no soul I trust to let the air out. I listen to those music; to those rain drops falling;
My skin is tan, and my back is strong. strong enough, to take the pain .. inflicted again & AGAIN. I get scared to, and I fight back knowing I'll lose because I'm strong enough, to take the pain ..
A year has passed since last we were together, when the days were long and sunny, when I smiled a lot more. But after that day, when I learned the truth, about those feelings you have deep down,

She stepped out of the car and quickly strutted her way to the classroom, avoiding as much eye contact as possible; Then, during the second that she looked up- the look that had to be made because she was tired of
We, like the forever wind, rage like the gemstone sky, scare like the diamond fire, sear We are, like a roaring train, a force like her ocean eyes, electric like the sun’s breath, gold

I thought women had silver dollar nipples not ones that look like balls of scrunched up panty-hose.
Hooded eyes: downcast, afraid Hunched shoulders, bearing the weight Sad smile, betraying the truth The pressure: too much for this youth.
