It hurts me to say, but I know that this is the end, Because after everything that happened, we can never be friends again. I have to admit to myself, that I will always love you,
I feel myself slowly starting to get better everyday, But every once in a while, it still hurts, and I knew that it was going to be this way. And I find myself still wishing that you would come back,
I still remember the story that you told me, About how your mom wanted nothing to do with your dad until they came to be. How they grew up together, and your mom wanted nothing to do with your dad,
Can I sit here and say that I am starting to let it go? Or is this a lie, and it is something that I already know. During the day I am fine, and then I fall apart most nights,
So here we are, trying to pick up the pieces of the mess that you made, And the damage that you caused is going to need a lot more than a band-aid.
A kiss of water and salt seals unspoken words, I feel the trace of an unsent letter on my lips. Asphyxiated by the protection of our integrity, At the expense of my serenity.
I thought I wasn't going to show it to you, but I did, And now you know how I have felt about you since you were a kid. After all of this time, maybe now you can finally see,
As hard as it would be to hear it, sometimes I wish you would just have the guts to say how you feel, Because you and I both know that it is what is real. I know you want to tell me to leave you alone,
i believe some beauty is worth going blind for  
I've never been brave. All my life, I've been the girl terrified of spiders. I've been the one who isn't able to sleep without a light on, the one who's scared to walk alone in the dark.  
her heart,broken to pieces of glass and mine so beautiful and healed, then she came into my life and i knew she was mistreated, i gave her a chance it was all i can give but,
New year.   New classes.   She's only in 2 of them with me.   Last year, she was in all of them.   I still see her.  
I wonder if you think of me  in the way I do of you.   Does your heart flutter, or do you get butterflies?   Does your heart ache,
5 months, trading kisses in my car Your hands tracing hearts around my arms Our lives, we knew would never be the same Oh why’d you have to go and change  4 weeks, that’s all it took for me to fall
Shattered HourglassDo you guys think that if I break and hourglass time would cease to exist? Just long enough so I  Can I go back to that night Yeah the night you walked out of my room The night were “I love you” no longer held a meaning besides
Once upon a time ago  I thought life could be easy. Look at me  I’m lower  Than the sunken place I feel like I’m lost at sea 
We fell in love in late spring  As cool wind nipped at our cheeks  we found warmth in each others bodies  Our love blossomed into the summer Hot, sunny days  Walking trails hand in hand 
I think I lost myself, again Because here I am, fondling the sheets at 3am, looking for you in the darkness I only feel comfortable, if you are around And I can't eat, unless I feed you first 
the day you left  the world still spun precisely poised in orbit and time. no meteor shower or catastrophic event molested the cosmic drab. the day you left we didn't make the headlines. 
if oneday you hear me through shadows, understanding; when we've screamed out deaf through pinholes in the floor. then perhaps you'll discover the me you've been missing; unearth that lazy hammer
Beneath the weight of betrayal's sting, I feel the tears that longing brings, Made a fool, manipulated, accused, Left torn, worthless, empty, and bruised.
It's funny how life decides to teach you lessons in the hardest way, And that most of the time, you don't know what else you can do, think, or say. For the first time in a long time, I am finally starting to feel like me again,
Lightning, you strike once, ruling the sky, never striking the same way again.   Lightning, thunder told me of your arrival, but why is there no thunder to tell me when you leave?  
The Light was gone  Fading like a dying star.  The glass was shattered Like a broken heart. The person lost Looking for what could be. Found with nothing Given everything.
I’m not gone lie  nights are a little lonely when you’re not there  No laughter No exchange of I love you No call 
I am broken in pieces, sitting behind my bedroom door, Trying to get myself to pick up the peices of my heart that are scattered all over the floor. You broke me in ways that I will never be able to understand,
Sitting in front of the door with the tears streaming down my face, Knowing that there is no way that I can get out of this dark place. Just as I thought things were turning around, life decides to take a turn,
For so long, I kept holding on, trying to convince myself that all of this was for something, But I wasn't prepared for all of the hurt and pain that it would bring. I am covered in bruises, cuts and scares from head to toe,
Blue hair Blonde eyes Piercing Cheshire lashes Beating Pounding! Burning into ashes!   Blooming Blossom My Darling English Rose What secrets lie
My Secret Place. Well, secret in my eyes. It’s the only place I can go when I need to be alone. Alone with my thoughts, The leaves made the perfect hiding place from the sun. hiding behind the clouds. It was so quiet.
She slips on her left shoe, Before I ask her for a hug, She squeezes me with all her might, But it felt just like a small bug, I tell her with a soft tone, As she walks up to the door,
This back and fourth bullshit from you is something that I told myself I would never deal with, But I decided that when it comes to you, I can't deal with it anymore, and I have decided to plead the fifth.
looking into your eyes, oh so blue  i couldn’t help but fall for you but i should’ve trusted my gut with you  especially after the last two 
Do you ever get scared of not knowing what you are capable of? And this can be in every aspcect in your life; whether it be work, school, goals, or even love?
I pick up the red and black pants that I saw you wearing in those pictures that I look at all the time, And I really thought that by know, I would be able to call you mine.
I didn't want to admit it, but I cried myself to sleep every night this week because of you, And I know that it is going to continue, no matter what I try and do.
No matter how many times I tell myself not to, I can't stop myself from watching it, And everytime I do, I am always left feeling like my heart took a hit.
Mon, 5:10-5:30 am SHE BROKE MY HEART By Debi Lyn 09/19/22   As if enough MEN hadn’t already done the same –
Sometimes it's hard to admit it, but sometimes you need to accept defeat, And that the future that you thought you were heading towards ends up not being so sweet.
Sometimes it's hard to admit it, but sometimes you need to accept defeat, And that the future that you thought you were heading towards ends up not being so sweet.
  Amore, mi sveglio questa bellissima fredda mattina di aprileForte come un leone in cattività, ma solo una cosaMi sta agitando: sei lontano da me e dalla mia isolaSei sola, assonnata e lontano dalla terra.
Broken promises and heartbreaks,  This friendship used to be sweet as cakes.  Things are not the same, they have changed,  What happened that caused us to be estranged?

I've travelled a lot, all across the world. Although I've never been outside my homeland. I've never been on a plane, but I've seen oceans and deserts, and the hustling cities, from a quiet rooftop.
                                                        No loyalty No royalty No unconditional love No clean white dove Life is full of shocks, locks
Love is a dream that begins Love is a chimera that begins It’s a ballerina who dances It’s a poet who thinks It's a bird that sings
It took me a long time to realize, but I have finally learned a lot about you, And that even though I thought you were different, your actions told me that you areexactly the same by the things that you do.
Heartbreak  fuck the pain  sobbing- mascara on my face  hood on,  resting bitch face- showing (to tired to h id e it) Why?Love- pain 
A thousand paper cuts cover my fingers,From flipping through the pages of this book.Of our book.The book we wrote together,Page by page,Day by day.
I used to love you. To the words,deeds and promises full filled and broken, I used to cherish those moments. Moments that were breathe taking, I really really enjoyed everything.....
5 months, trading kisses in my car Your hands tracing hearts around my arms Our lives, we knew would never be the same But why’d you have to go and change Hey 4 weeks, that’s all it took for me to fall
When we met you told me that your heart was a broken song So I hope you were able to fix it with the pieces you took after shattering mine.  But mine will never be reassembled on solid ground
Silently I prayUnderneath the starsFor a lover that will stayErase all the scarsLeft on my heart by othersWho left without hesitationAnd let me be smothered Therefore, what I hope to find
The best way that I can explain life is that it is like a thread, And the length of your string all depends on what you went through and the words that were said.
I always used to say I hated summer Something about the heat Or the sun burns Or the bugs flying around No matter where you go But it wasn’t entirely true You see It’s true that I hated summer
It's so ironic how after heartbreak, a simple everyday item turns into the things that makes you fall apart, And it doesn't take much for every little thing to remind me of you, even though you were the one who broke my heart.
I don’t understand how you can just stand there Standing beside the river I cried Skipping stones off my tears to watch how far they’ll go As if my brokenness is a wishing well you have been waiting to use
If our story is over Let me be the first to write the endnote Let me be the first to close the cover To burn the pages where I scribbled your name in my dreams   And if the pages are burning
I'm falling But you won't catch me. I'm falling, Landing out this time. I'm falling But you didn't push me. I'm falling But you didn't pull me. "I can't help it if you're falling"
I would love to tell you "take all the time you need, I'll be here" I would really, really love to, But I don't really know if I can. Not like this. Desert. Dry. Empty. Lost. Lonley.
Back and forth In and out Running away Coming back. Here and there Nowhere to be found I say “I’ll just forget” I say “I’m a clown”. Dancing and turning Lying in bed
It’s A Lot Easier To Believe The Warming Feeling Of Love For Another Is Thoroughly Reciprocated Than To Admit The Blatant Truth That Your Love Is One Sided.
I didn’t start writing because you broke me, you know? I started writing when I learned to write, I learned to write because I learned to read,
You know I’ve realized That somehow falling in love Is the best and worst thing That can ever happen to a person   You will feel things you never knew you could feel.
Merry Christmas Darling We’re apart as you planned And every day is full of pain Since you’re holding a different hand  
Dear friend,   I know it has been two years now since you left. I know I’ve had two years to let go, or move on, or to heal. But the truth it’s that some scars are uglier than the wounds.
I'm not asking for a bouquet of flowers on my step door every single day I haven't asked for handwritten poems on the daily or for you to have to pay I never asked for the moon, the sun, the mountains or the bay
I was there when you built your garden I helped you pick what plants to grow I held your hand when you spoke of the harvest and all the meals we would share.
All for one, one for all. Can't have one without the other. Pain, hurt, desire, love. All for one, one for all. Can’t have one without the other.   My heart sank when you told me of your decision.
You were supposed to be The one who would love me and take care of my heart.   Love denied once again.   I still feel the pain, hurt, and suffering From past and present relationships.

I’m not angry at you Ya know? I might have been angry Or sad Or frustrated Or some combination of that Mixed with the feeling of being utterly destroyed But I was never angry at you
I can’t help but feel That I will never stop writing About this feeling That I will never stop feeling This in love And this unloved At the same time It’s an emotion
If I’m being honest, I’m not sure I’m strong enough. We write poems and songs and stories To convince ourselves to let go To move on That something better will come along Each breakup is empowering

Imagine yourself inside the most beautiful building you have ever seen, within this building are memories that are irreplaceable, secrets that remain untold, feelings that have never been discovered by another, and your whole entire soul.
I called you yesterday. You answered. I hung up.   You sound the same.
When you walked away, I never thought it would hurt I never expected to wait for a text, a call, a sign you were still okay I always thought that walking away will leave you out of my life for good, but I can't get rid of you
I am not going to sit here and pretend that I am okay, Cause if I am being honest, it really changes and I have to take it day by day. One day I go to bed smiling and I am still very hopeful for the future and what it can bring,
My heart is a hollow place Where old dreams lie: Smoking the opium of forgetfulness Trying in vain to die. I willed myself into a trance this summer, And fell into a deep, enchanted slumber.
I met with her in a field of blooming wildflowers. She stood there in her sky-blue dress Amongst the sage, And primrose, Bluebonnet and paintbrush, Dandelion, And the tiniest white lilies.
I'm ok now.Mostly, that is.I still think about you.Sometimes it feels like you never left:Stalking the fringes of my dreams.
As embers in the night, you set my heart on fire intense and violent, wildly out of control spreading intensely i find myself lost in the thought, that is "you" though maybe it was my own wishful thinking
I cry, but only by myself Constantly I reminisce about us Red was the setting sun, setting your silhouette ablaze Your smile which shined brighter than any star   I keep wondering if you think about me still
Like the sun and moon endlessly chasing after one another giving warmth, one moment a piercing bone chilling cold in the next i chase after you still my voice reaches out, but I am not heard
I waited for you in the hallway But I did not hear your voice I waited for your call in the night But my phone did not stir I waited for your love But it would never be mine  
You see the the thing they don’t tell you about burning love Is that nothing burns forever Nothing burns without destruction Or scars A burning love is hot with passion Fearsome with flashes of desire
I could never write love poems til I met you. Could never describe how it felt to love To love as deeply as I do As I have I could never write love poems without them becoming tear drops on the paper
I see your very tired  Life and love has beaten you down The days have grown long and I want to hold you in my arms They say hurt people hurt people
Everyone told me that I was crazy, but I so badly wanted to prove them wrong.  I feel like an idiot, for hoping that things would go the way that I wanted them to, and for holding on for so long.
If it were my birthday - by me     I know I wasn’t invited. I know I wasn’t there. But I wish you a happy birthday,
At 16 I diagnosed myself with mental pain since then nothing was the same I prayed to god everynight just to keep me sane.   At the age of 17 my pillow was my bestfriend
I wish I was a rich white lady who could eat pray love after a breakup, instead I choke down my food saying to myself 'good food', 'good food'
Memories is all I have to hold  But it’s too hard to let go I felt alive  I felt in sync  I moved with the wind They were the wind
 I’m a goddess  In a garden of dead roses  Shhh Don’t speak to loud  They hate when I expose its True identity  Idolizing my failures
you left me high and dry i didnt get to say goodbye a loved one i could no longer love fly away, you're a dove   no longer here, my imagination filling your place
Your touch is tattooed  On every curve Your smile Foggy amongst the autumn sun I dream of your eyes Sad and wandering
love  isnt it perculier  filling up the cages of ur heart  lifting it up into the sky  til it falls back down broken and alone  why cant it fly  couldnt we have known  how it would turn out
I hear love is an amazing thing All the hugs, kisses, and gifts. But what happens when the person I love betrays Me? Leaves Me stranded in a deep dark empty hole, Trying to escape, searching for help, But I can’t seem to find any. Shutting down, I
Oh why dont you love me h why dont you look at me like you used to look at her like you used to smile at her
It’s getting bad again  How do I know?  I went to the doctors for mastitis,  If you don’t know  it’s a kind of infection, 
Why do I feel  this way? Why do I always give you the benefit of the doubt and never cut myself the same slack?  words        spew and 
You've moved on and that's great But I'm still here missing your hugs When we met I thought it was fate  Now I'm sitting here wondering where I messed up Because was it me? Was it you?
Oh to love love,Yet be stricken by its sharp pain at every end;I find myself stuck in this seemingly unbreakable cycle.I love to love those who I loveAnd then an end comes
There's a piece of my heart that still holds on to you. The piece that equates neglect with value; Abandonment with level of servitude. The fairytale I never got to see come true.
For the losers who lost us. The people who loved us. The lucky people who get to meet us. This is for you.   I don't have an attitude, just a personality you can't handle love.
For the losers who lost us. The people who loved us. The lucky people who get to meet us. This is for you.   I don't have an attitude, just a personality you can't handle love.
I hate those days when the sun don’t shine  Makes me reflect on the days you were mine  So I hurry and close the blinds  So the rain doesn’t come down my eyes
sometimes the pain comes back like the feeling of a missing limb   the scars of a heartbreak that might never fully heal   it's hard to know what to write  how to write. why to write.  
Long forgotten in the pages of your life, What we had was a love like all the others The build up to the break down. Conversations of us wed, and I️ your loving wife
To some it may have seemed like I was doing nothingness -that I was not open enough to come to it - that I was lonely and I was fronting, but truthful when it comes to this;
My darling, You make broken look beautiful. And tears look like crowns. The shards of your heart. Are a weapon, no doubt. You don't have to protect it. Muscle battered and torn.
I was misguided.Interpreting all of my feelings wrong I don't want to travel I want to see world,In one person.And have them want me back, forever
Is it worse to fall in love? Or to try your hardest not to love anymore? Because lately, I’ve been leaning both ways Trying to find enough will to stay awake
For the lost souls and the misguided in life  Let me shelter you from strife Let me shepherd you to new light  Take up your own path and leave me 
She was the most beautiful thing in the room  He gazed upon her radiance in awe of her, Her eyes soon met his and he was engulfed by her warmth  For in her eyes he saw galaxies 
Heartbreak. They say it causes both emotional and physical exhaustion and pain... That was enough to scare me away from it for so long-  Love I mean- I never let myself fall hard enough to get hurt.  
I let you, I loved you, and you  decided to break me.   So as I build myself back up I pray you work hard to become the man I know you can be. One I deserve, 
My heart said fuck this and went to find you, It jumped right from my chest On a noble mission to find it's home, It grew tired of waiting,
There is a burning; a fire of love in me.  It burns intensely for you.  Though you may try, you will never extinguish it. 
Wearing this crown of shit. Proud and shameless. I stand. I'm Standing tall. Here I stand.  You will not make me fall. I will not crumple. I will not hesitate. As you spectators speculate. In an attempt to emulate. To only perpetuate. Some it may
When will I stop missing you so much  The thoughts in my brain are eating me up  I don’t know if I’ll ever feel enough for you  Or any one for that matter
Is she there now?  Laying next to you and tracing the little moles on your back like I used to? 
i feel so weak.   i am a beggar pleading for change   from a man whose hands i'm afraid will never give to me again.   i only yearn for those few small tokens of affection.  
LOVE TELLS NO LIES Tell me what it's like To see a sad man From inside your eyes...   Do we know How to say I am sorry Not to worry....   Show me the way....  
Me and you in the feild of flowers staring up and the giant towers making up our story as we were going though back then i didnt know the hatered flowing I was happily skipping around thinking we were bound

People all around the world have been devastated by the coronavirus. Rarely do people want to look at or talk about the upside to this pandemic. My upside to being forced to stay home is a dark one.
do you find my presence in the music you hear, the sceneries you discover, the sunlight so brightly shining through your windows or the scent the rain leaves on the ground,
sky of clouds looms heavy over my head like the weight of your love pushing down on my shoulders.   streams of milky sugar line the cotton-candy sunset and it's a bittersweet feeling.  
i was a full garment before i met you.   i may have had some loose strings,   but they were nothing that a pair of sewing scissors couldn't fix.   then you gave me that million-dollar smile.  
All the expectations and love for you Shattered and annihilated in a moment or two Building the castles in air, I was Pursuing you, was my biggest loss Deep in your self, I have lost mine
My heart is very heavy, Like it weighed a thousand pounds. Like clouds turning dark and gray; And it terrifies the ground, And a large army abound.
Beep! Beep! Beep! Leave a message --- For the heart you have dialed, Is no longer in service.
I know certain people only have a certain time with each other,​But even some are meant to last forever.​I do not know when exactly our story will terminate,​But I want you to know how much you made me great.
Am I mentally fucked up too? I walk down the halls, the same paths you took, The same paths that we conversed, The same paths that we touched. I still look for your beautiful face  Upon the crowded areas.
  Dear ex-lover, I wanted to taste the way you bleed and just like in between the lines i read no you didnt love me, didnt want this tree to suceed 
To think of spring  in the dewy, humid morning  when love is brand new  and cherished like the sky of blue she walks in front of you  not knowing where to begin  and where to end  she lends 
I accidentally filled her mindwith serenading cicadasthat erupted on El Dia De Los Muertos,a piñata swarm of insects,their nightmarish candy formseating away all the love in the universe,
Hello, My name is....  you probly dont care. I mean who am I?  A girl in a crowd... I open up. and you close. My mind starts to wonder... what couldve been if i said my name?
falling in life is like sunburn at first you go bright red and feel warm all over  then it starts to hurt to move but soon it'll settle and either become a part of you  or it'll peel away
  thoughts, They say familys deeper than blood but how can you hurt someone you love Saw them grow up  that not enough The pain in their heart but their not giving up...
I want a future that is both yours and mine. I want to have dinner parties on the porch and drink wine while the twinkle lights shine.
there’s been so many times where i debated whether or not i should manifest you back into my life, but honestly? i really wouldn’t know what to say to you after years of being apart.
Been thinking too much about you And its filling me with dread My soul is screaming for its mate Cant silence the noise in my head You cut me deep once before Im still trying to stop the bleeding
I Fall down onto my knees I look up into your eyes I can see you praying to the heavens Set a fire in my heart Don’t you know I want you
When the windeth blows, it's ev'r so cold But nev'r as such within mine soul F'r thoust claim'd I'm dark withineth But I hast not commit'd sineth   Shall clouds rolleth in, I dear proclaim
It all started one day, and I had no clue of what was coming my way I can't believe it's true. I was told it would happen,
he said "me" I said "I" then he kissed my neck and whisperd "Us" In  that moment words were sacred beings my holy grail. Stronger than any god I felt my kness give in
Hey, is this okay? Can I sleep here for the night? Do you mind at all? Am I bothering you? I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to.
She clings to me; like a button on my plaid shirt. Sewn in strategically. Gradually withering away in her fibers But holding on for the life of her. My hands are soaked in sweat but I cant interrupt her steady breath.
It’s cold here, all alone. The fan is off but I’ve never felt so cold. Am I destined to stay here, wasting away? Spending my days cold and alone.
We were running our breaths raspy you could see my heart in my breast It seemed innocent but you had a wicked grin poision was running in your veins you fainted
You did it, you really left I guess I asked for this I just didnt think it would be this way My heart was ripped out today You're gone for good Gone too soon I never had a chance to tell you
He knows.He knows that I'm already bleeding I've already fallen,I can't defend myself when it comes to him.
My life has been on hold for so long I didn’t even realise No progress has become the new norm While I sit here and wait for you to love me Like once upon a time when we were both so young
Back when the palms of his hands  weren’t scarred by calluses  and his feet were as nimble  as the sticks of a percussionist, he danced with her in a space 
They say distance makes the heart grow fonder,  And being apart from somelike you has made my mind wander. I am constanty wondering what you are doing during this time, 
the raindrops on my cheeks they go and come new though i'm stuck in a dream reminiscing of you
A day will come, When I shall be stronger, To look at the mirror again. And say to you, Have overcome you, You're no longer my shadow. Am done with you, For good! And never coming back.
The dark eyed mom is here again. I hope she’s not here to stay. There will be no meals or good-time feels And no, This mom don’t play.
You know, I can see it in your face Your just a machine A slave to your desire You’re so black and blue Yesterday, you said you wanted this Today, you don’t want to live
I'm so tired of being the one that has to be okay all the time I'm so over being the one that always has to take a deep breath and trek on I'm tired of wearing a mask for everyone else while I die on the inside
He’s a bad boy and a gentleman too Thrilling me in the prime of my youth   Ride and love and bum around
i had hope for a happy ending happily ever after but really my world is twisting and bending i thought our love would last but really now its just in the past
I would rather hate you then love the idea of you. That's the world I've been inhabiting for the last few months. My stream has emptied into the sea of your emotions, and I am tossed around in the malestrom of your moods.
I brought you a gift— a star from my travels through space and time. Unsatisfied, you asked for the sun instead With no regard for the burns on my hands.
My scars run deeper than my irrevocable love For he who cuts me deepest just to see if I still bleed His thirst strengthens as he watches the life drip from me Insatiable, he whittles away til he reaches my bones
You cast the shadow. I tend to hide behind it. We are an eclipse.
Walking away He turned a new chapter Behind my back I hear a sobbing laughter Hold back your tears Tighten your fist Don’t show her your scared I don’t need to look
Shine…  Shining her light she burns the feeling of hopelessness to ashes  Putting the feelings of insecurity and anxiety into the flames of don’t try me
Broken boy who revels in pain lives a life where only pieces remain Fragments of what he was of all he was meant to be,
Being in love is like being a surfer on the biggest wave on your carreer. It's scary at first, not knowing if you're ready for it. But once you're in it, it is a high that no drug could ever match.
I miss you. I know that I shouldn't, God knows that you’ve caused me enough pain But that doesn’t stop my heart from reaching out to you in the night,
I can swallow I can swallow two pills   At the same time And it gives me a thrill   Mixing my meds I find it addictive  
Hue grows strong/hue dies weak Baby bird bites its beak Fragile nest in a creek Sticks and stones, bugs and leaves   Fingers, hands, hair and hearts
you decided i needed open heart surgery so you found the dullest blade you could and began to rub it against my chest until the skin finally began to tear
i’m all alone in this glass house Swallowing jack under a pink sky there’s blood on the driveway keeping a knife in the pocket of my jeans
i’m all alone in this glass house Swallowing jack under a pink sky there’s blood on the driveway keeping a knife in the pocket of my jeans
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.
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
coke and acid and weed and girls that weren’t me but you were my only drug my only addiction   and to you, to you my drug of choice, to you I was loyal
Love is all in vain The vulnerability Romanticized There is nothing romantic about this pain There is nothing i love about hurting
Just one short embrace Enough to make me crave more You walk far away I can't seem to remember A time you were here with me
I know you've seen the empty cave That echoes deep regret For time lost here casts darker shadows Than memory's silhouette
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
  She inspires me in the way she walks how gracious her voice is as she talks the magic she carries and shares wherever she goes
  She inspires me in the way she walks how gracious her voice is as she talks the magic she carries and shares wherever she goes
I can feel your heart beat in mine own. Our breaths rise and fall as one, Flowing and receding like the tide. Our minds surge with the energy of a thousand suns,
it was as though he was helium, and I just happened to be an empty balloon.  often we found nothing but tedium,
you promised we'd make it your love, you promised you wouldn't fake it the thought of me leaving, you said you could't take it   yet it was you who left me in the place you promised i'd never be again
warmth.  embrace, it's something i lack. i'll be without, you won't come back.   hate. love, it's all an illusion. at this point it's all confusion.    fate.
heres to you i can pretend that i am not lying here heart broken that im not listening to music on repeat and sobbing into my blankets i can pretend it doesnt hurt
Tick tock Biological clock So selfish of you to take so much time to decide To say it is over Don't you know there are deadlines I must keep? My plans have fallen apart
You took my paper-mache heart all fixed up with glue, And showered it in your great tears of rue, The tears, the tears became fountains of blue, They puddled and puddled and slowly grew,
A godsend boy and a angelic girl on a field with nothing but promises of love and adventure. The whimper of being chilly on the summer evening was subdued by the rhythm of his mouth on hers,
To Him. To Her. To the beginning. To the End. To the things I want to un-know.   His dad’s old guitar that he picked up and tried to play with little to no success.
Heartbreak can only get worse It feels like a huge curse It's also like when you can't find anything in your purse   It breaks When they make mistakes Or if they're a snake  
 “A disastrous war will lead to our freedom.”  Or so, you say.  “There is no path. It’s the only way.”    Fight to the bitter end
This is the end, our forever love. I was so wrong.   You were silent, I was hopeful.   You left me,
A fresh leaf of paper, never used Placed before voracious palms The paper takes in each and every anxious qualm He scribbles his notes between the lines Hidden meaning behind mendacious eyes 
I fell for you like the rain;   Gradually and slowly in almost an intricate pattern.   Where the drops are unnoticeable and cease to affect the worlds balanced ways.  
I feel like a bubble of emotion Floating in the ease of your presence  But I think I am always waiting For the inevitable "POP" And knowing it wouldn't be possible To put us back together
It’s hard to think of just one thing,  When I consider all that this life will bring What has inspired me, What has set me free?
i don’t want to know what you think, you don’t care, you’re mind is blowing like the wind but eventually you sink into your heart and it’s showing,  
You hurtin?  I’m not saying you not entitled to the pain  But let’s remember who chose that path  Baby I wanted you
Think of me fondly when we've said goodbye. True, I'm on my own, but please don't start to cry. A little fall of rain will make the flowers bloom... Oh, love me,
Adopted honest behavior  but it's easier to lie about it. Though we're now strangers,  I still cry about it. Will I ever see you again?  I highly doubt it. Wrote out the letters  of your name, 
Dear..... ?
Love is blind when you don't really know what it is.A beautiful bliss,Or is that just a myth?When you've truly found your person, What a gift.It's a reciprocal language but, 
I was feeling so confident and feeling so great about myself And then it just be completely shattered. By one thing. By something so stupid. But then you make me feel crazy.
A fountain of love letters; ardent, over-exhausted, bursting at the seams with pure affection, unfurling out upon
It’s always you You’re my alarmclockIf it weren’t for youI’d never get out of bed You’re my air‘Cause I just can’t breathe without you You’re my hobbyBecause spending time with you never bores me
Attachment is too risky Attachment is a universal sign of something that can be broken Whether it be from love, hardship, differences 
he loves her so desperately and that she knew. all he can ever ask for is maybe a hungout and that was sometimes too much
  My mind doesn’t think of what’s wrong, but the pit in my stomach does. It aches and churns as I lay in bed that night rolled over onto my stomach
I never expected to find trust and love so quick  My past temptations have left my heart in a cold abyss  I cling to him because he makes me feel
the taste on my tongue of bitter words that could leave you stung   the fire in my heart of frustrated feelings that would lead me to fall apart   the thoughts in my head
dressed in blue I feel golden dancing with you my heart holden   high heeled shoes I feel beautiful dancing with you moments so meaningful   posed together
I'll arrive early enough but it's always tough to notice you since fifteen as you come old and green   no matter how hard I try every morning you always wake me with loud warnings
just in time for fall you lose your green tint left with no leaves at all questioning where your life went
leave me high and dry in the middle of the night counting my reasons to cry until the stars fade into daylight   the sun's rays will fill me with hope to step off of the tightrope
in the morning Anxiety accompanies me as my shadow in the day yelling at me all my insecurities but it's okay   in the night Depression welcomes me in my bed as I lay
thank the moon for being my company tonight maybe think I'll be fine soon thank the sky for crying with me tonight maybe think I'll finally say goodbye
It's that time of year again  When ghouls come out to play  Where zombies and witches converse in a new civilized way But your skeletons in the closet  They'll stay there another year 
Not every puzzle  has a piece  Not every beat has a song  Notes  not all have a rhyme  Some are leading mistakes  Some just give u heart ache 
Living in ignorance I live in ignorance,I tend not to think.If the truth hits me,It's hard to live. When the thoughts in my mind,Reminds me of whatever isn't mine,I divert ny attention, The pain in another direction.  Sometimes my eye catches a fe
Teary eyes, silent cries. Numb body, aching heart. Palid face, hidden scars.   All these emotions , you dont feel .
If you wanted to see how far  you could take it before i broke. Darling you should have looked closer. I was already broken
I have never experienced love  At least not the kind that I give that goes beyond and above Now your back in my life trying to ask, What’s Up?
It's the little things that plague my mind.   Like the way your eyes crinkle when you smile or the way you laugh after a bad joke.   The way your hand fit perfectly in mine
Everyone always tells me I have a way with words.Yes, my pen scribbles almost uncontrollably, when I picture you, and how I like to describe who you are, and how much an acquaintence could possibly mean to me.
i've been trying to forget you i've done an awful job i'm crying once again  at clair de lune.
i'm just so tired and angry and summer is closing in on me i wish i could just stop thinking about that dumb boy all fucking day i'm wasting away
i want you to tell me i'm the girl you can't get out of your head your muse your motivation the only one that matters at the end of it all before grabbing my face and kissing me slowly
I would give him up a thousand time just to have you So dear, doll, darling, Why do I feel like I'm losing you?
My heart is still yours if you want it it's up for grabs Hanging by the hooks on the back of my door Waiting to be picked in the garden beside my house Sent in a letter, sealed with a kiss
I watched a boy grow smart and sweet how was I to know my heart would shatter at my feet?   a few times we danced our eyes never meeting too nervous to get the chance
You look at me  and it's for the first time, mind you and with all you can see you miss my snakes hissing from the top of my head   So I look down at you because it's the first time for me too
Spent my childhood playing around in sandboxes Gripping onto grass crying with desperation to keep from going home My father prying on my tiny arms because he didn’t understand 
The heart's a fragile instrument but shatters if it's played. A tiny bump will leave a dent and make the colour fade.
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.
Shadows splay across my face where your fingers used to play, Absence of the kiss  that would warm my lips, In your grip as we stared into the abyss  
You say I'm like water That can mean many things   Water can be smooth and calm Gentle, cool to the touch Water doesn't stay in one place It doesn't settle down much
he could grip his hands around my throar, and push down until oxgen was nothing, but a far away dream, and still all he would have to do is say its this, or you'll never feel my lips again
I felt love in all the wrong places.   I felt love underneath my clothes. Not in my heart, but the curl in my toes.   I loved the way you loved my body. You loved the way I said, "I'm sorry."  
She could spread her wings with the birds and the bees and follow the sun as they became one Rays of fire soaking through her pores and wrapped around her bones it lifts her up higher than everyone else 
Eternity   Roses, roses Bloody roses Petals at my feet You love me not My insides rot
If hustle and bustle Is all that we know, Then what do you do when There's nowhere to go? With lights aglow And hearts below How can we not Want somewhere to go?
Last night you called; I love you was written in your pupils I'm sorry on your lips Don't leave in your eyebrows I miss you in your eyelashes
When you're rushing back and forth in desperation,You will find me  When you're so in over your head at night under your blanket,
I thought it was love that fleeting look of appreciation in your eyes made me feel like I could be enough why did it take me so long to realize you lied?   I wanted you to love me no, I craved it
Is that my heart in your pocket or are you just happy to hurt me?   What’s a masterpiece like you doing with a disaster like me?   Hey, you see my friend over there? He wants to know if you think I’m stable?
You know how frost spreads on a window? A collage of crystals forming in unique shapes and sizes. Stretching out at a steady speed til it encompasses the whole window in ice. Or how a fire burns a sheet of paper.
They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Yet grass continues to grow every time it is cut. The sun continues to rise every time the moon has pulled it away.
Do you know?   Do you know what happens to a fish without water? Do you know what happens to a fire without air? Do you know what happens to the trees without sun?
I am drifting, a lonely piece of driftwood covered in pale moonlight on an open sea. I don’t know where I am going nor where I came from, but I am drifting. I feel hollow, empty like a piece of me is gone and it can’t be replaced.
There once was a peaceful creature hidden away in a sweet cedar forest. The forest was ancient with beautiful features, but never a stranger or tourist  
I wish I could tell you I have something to say But when I finally try to You walk far away   The somethings a secret That only I know I tried hard to keep it But it’s starting to show
You have changed me, into this girl,  she is needy, and demands attention of any kind.   - A woman who wants her man to want her - someone who craves excess, high is never high enough.  
What if I could live in a world in which I never fell for you? What if I never fell for you? What if I never fall again? Never feel the scrape of my knees hitting earth again.
Do you remember the days, the nights, the adventures we always used to share? Flying away on wings of laughter that were built on mutual care. Five good friends and lots of fun was all I used to need.
Like a dog who chases after his tail, I chased after you.  I know it was something different for you but just like you, I was scared too.
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
The cold fingers of your memories cling to the back of my neck, to the back of my mind the same way the tears grab at my eyes. The scent of you burns my nose, the same way the images of you laying next to me floods my dreams. 
A delirious soul I am, Constantly yearning for the love I can never attain, Why must my heart ache for those who it will never reach?
the memories of you have burned a hole into my brain, theyve singed my hair, painted the walls ash-grey. i asked if i could burn the sweatshirt but it wasnt your face i was looking at,
  Our last dying rose The thorns that hold the grace but Love knows no way to survive because
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. 
It all began when I started to like boys. But little did I know, those were all decoys. They told me sweet nothings as if I was one of their toys. 
My lips are grasping for that last I love you wrapped around your breathless voice. It’s breaking my bones but I’m so desperate not to let go. It’s kept me on my feet for so long,
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
hey howve you been? it feels as if we havent talked in a while what are you doing? you seem busy
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.
You are no longer at my side. You are gone, the one who promised me you were here to stay.   I mourned in the weeds, damaged and broken. Strength lost. Sunlight producing no more color for me.
Tokens Every boy I know has left a piece of them in my life And  Some have taken chunks of my mental  Emotional Sanctifying being  Replaced by materials Tokens
To love you now is to love you then; adopting a ticking time bomb and calling it my best friend. Forgetting that the fuse was lit,
you meet these people on the path of life as lovers, as friends, as family as something entirely different   sometimes they stay,
Here we are You across from me You’re back is all that I see And she’s holding the trophy   The mistakes I have made are my own
Drugs were addicting. I suppose I enjoyed seeing everything and feeling nothing. Though I did kind of feel alive - to be staring into the face of the Grim Reaper. He once wrapped his hands around my throat.
He broke me.  It happened again, I knew it would! I warned him, I told him!    He let me believe him, I shouldn’t have though. 
People ask if I’m okay, “I’m fine.” I say it but it really means “I’ve fallen apart.”   People ask me how I’m doing, “Good.”
9-5-18   there was a time i really thought we were going to be together forever.   and the reasons that we aren't are bull shit.  
Fairy Tale Fail  
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;
One, Two, Three, Four ,,,, thatʼs how many came before you, youʼd think earlier i wouldʼve made a breakthrough but instead iʼve decided to push through,
a few days agoi wanted to sit down and write about how unappreciated you werenot that i changed my mind, noi still believe thatbut todaytodayi'm hurti'm hurt that
  I wish someone told me that heartbreak isn’t easy to get through. I wish someone told me that everything in your life leads up to something.
Growing up seems so tough 
I can recall-perfectly, A Time, Made of Gold   Not the gold, That you both laced around me, binding my neck and wrists.  
I am empty Numb My life is in shambles lying on the floor I cannot move   Abandoned promises Shattered dreams The thought of you haunts me Even when I sleep  
Im sorry I grew up mom I’m sorry I’m not your little girl anymore..But no matter how many times you try to deny that it’s me and I need to change Frankly you have no say in this matter....
It burns through us all, every person on the planet. It is a fast and fearless monster. Stopping the force of the creature seems impossible.
I didn't even feel you beating out of my chest.  You must not have turned the light out when you left.  Heather Angelika Dooley ©2006  Don't Rub Salt in the Heartbreak
It took nothing to realize she knew everything she never let herself realize. She always loved those who didn’t deserve her. The lesson here was:              You never win
A train pulled through my heart and let you off.You pushed your loco... motives...into my life,  
I fell in love once, It was a wonderful feeling, I felt like I was loved, Like I mattered, Like someone in the world cared about me. I was so broken
You’re stuck in my mind, Your old laugh, Your smile Things I can’t leave behind It’s impossible to say I’m happy
He loved not once but twice, And both times it ended badly, Both times he paid the price And his story ends sadly.   He was young and untested,
I am the bolt of lightning, Shocking, fast, and gone in an instant. I create a smoking crater, But of who left it I leave no hint.   I am the stormy ocean,
... and I keep pondering over your 2 seconds   Who are you          and     Why do you bother to dissapoint me again? after so long?  
My short, silky pigtails were brushing through the wind while you pushed me on the swings, since my little legs couldn’t swing myself.
A rose by any other name Has thorns that are just as sharp. An ocean in any other day Will drown you if you try to run.  
To all the ones I ever loved, I felt the sting of your betrayal. I felt the love you claimed to have. I know how much time you had to put into building you're mask.
You hold my hands Wrap the gauze around my bruised knuckles, Whisper me pieces of words For my mind to create Into stained-glass portraits.
How ironic it is, I remember the sight of you, I hear the timbres of your voice. I’ve known you, For a long while.   How ironic it is, That life gave you to me, Before snatching you away.
Hurting so bad that I smother Seeing I’m stuck in the gutter Weeping without one another Stranded with nothing to plunder  
How could you make me feel like i was the center of your universe, While reminding me that the sun too, will eventually die, It seemed as though you wanted to assist in this death,
i.     you were petals i oncesubmerged — a fistful i letgo of under a foggy seawhen i was succumbingto myself    
I loved  you    how  only a    Midwesterngirl    would    love a tornado warning.I didn’t    want the      sunshine; Iwanted      wild, whirling,in-the-moment  April    
Then   he took the respect she had for Herself  and the wonders from the earth around Her he took her her kindness  and what seemed, the air from Her lungs he took Her curiousity 
There is always that one person. that no matter how much  time has passed, no matter how many times you cried-- and told yourself that they didn't matter; when you see their face--
Dear Itzmir, We started out as friends, then we became more than what we started out as. Our relationship was texts that went on all night, we would be on the phone for
Please don't cause me depression. Am not begging you to make you feel inferior over me, or make look like a kid who lost the compass to the future. But please listen to me while I still have a voice to say something.
“I do not love you anymore.” My heart ached, begging for a night in, a tub of ice cream. Liquor, warm and hot, running down my throat.  Tears, running from the past down my cheeks.
“I do not love you anymore.” My heart ached, begging for a night in, a tub of ice cream. Liquor, warm and hot, running down my throat.  Tears, running from the past down my cheeks.
My life is one great symphony, So listen to its melody. The drumbeat is my heartbreak, The violins are my sorrow, The low brass proclaims my rage,
      It all happened so fast. The rise and fall. The thrill of it all. Life seemed to know we needed to awaken into the reality around us,
snow queen iced and blue my heart is hurting dripping icicles pause refreeze. what kind of love is this? fuck. fuck the kind of love that doesn’t bring you peace.
I am the open book that no one cares to read. Will you lower my body and shovel the dirt on my face? Will you look into a dead man's eyes? I dreamt of your warmth once. Your hand on mine.
honestly at this point i have absolutely no idea what to do anymore.
It is not just one, there are many, one for each you Wounds, Hurt One for each absence How much you? How much me? How much of us? How much time and absence on this goodbye?
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.
If I was a tree, I’d be a lonely one Waving at people as they go by It’s a hot afternoon, the rays of the sun Make me grow up, but this tree will still cry   50 years later, of standing so still
There once was a star, way up high The star is sad, he starts to cry The star looks up and sees her eyes, The star is happier, he doesn’t know why   The star is very far away
Let me tell you a tale As I try not wail Take a seat, grab a cocktail  And hear my story unveil   I was once a small kid And heaven forbid That I ever bat an eyelid  or ever hurt a squid
Only if These Tears You Caused  Were a pathway And these drugs I did made a sign Then Maybe Maybe you would be in my life
I’m just not the same Where’s the picture for my frame Where’s the candle for my flame  I just am not right  Where’s the sun to bring me light Where’s the pen so I can write  
My hands are shaking, my heart is breaking.I can't breathe at all, it feels like I might fall.My head is spinning, there is no more winning.Just hurt and pain, no more to gain.I can't break free, from the pain that is me.I hurt, I ache, I sob, I s
And it was after you I realized why the lord made angels in heaven far away from humans. I fell to my knees aching to touch those fluttering wings on your back
im not exactly sure how it began or when it started, all i remember is that you were distant towards me for what seemed like the second week in a row since we last actually tal
My first love was a boy whose beauty could have put Aphrodite's to shame For his eyes glimmered in the sun like gems And his smile beamed so brightly it flocked dozens to him But this boy stuck to my side
Bloom. Life begins to zoom. Growing up too soon. Been six years in school. Not my first crush but closest to first love. Went through things no kid ever should've. Years of off and on revealed to be
Can I?  Can I love you and still let you go? It feels so wrong.  Like if I'm not still hanging on to every word that's no  longer meant for me,  then I don't love you and never did. 
Graceless, the sinking soils, a cold thorn between Venusian thighs Had pierced her bud so aggressively, Despite my vociferous efforts, To keep him away: Above the lands, I find the tattered remains of letters
Dear Love,
One day... One day you wake up; You open your eyes. Everything blurs; Everything turns black and white. Ash surrounds your senses; All you feel is numb, Numb pain,
Honestly, I fell for you; I fell for you hard, like nothing else mattered. You were on my mind day and night and everything in between;
An assassin of emotions & a murderer of spirits should not be blessed with such a melodious snicker & silvery mumble He should not have hair the shade of honey for he is not as sweet as such His smile should not sparkle as the stars do for
That heavy cigarette scent, intertwined with his cologne, lingered in the little space between us.
My mother taught me valuable things. She taught me to treat everyone as equals whether they clean the toilets or sit in a shiny new office on the top floor.
Baby girl whered you go Planned a date but you dont know Bought them tickets to the show Come to me so we can flow   Last night i dreamed about you Forever with you, you know this is true
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:
  So stuck inside my brain   I feel like it's driving me insane Can’t breath, can’t see I’m not who I was, not even me    
I accept any company,  I try to make myself feel good, I cry anytime I'm alone It doesn't feel right if I don't, I don't talk about my day, I don't talk about my feelings,
The Strike The Final Blow My word? No.   No was used to stop the abuse No was said to blow out the fuse.   The fuse of anger had turned to grief, and the fuse
You and I. A million things that could've been and that might still come to be,One hundred things in those three words that can be read between the lines,
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,
Wild, crazy beast; they say he cannot be tamed. Unpredictable as the rising tides, impulsive as the wind...   I see myself in him.
As the wind blows and the sun cuts my eyes My vision begins to fail me. Maybe I take things too serious. Now I fail at love again.   It all comes back to me.   You really cared.
We have a light in our hearts Those dreams that have made us stars But you've been staying out having fun   Time and time again You said those games would end You're a picky one  
What have you done to me? Got wandering the streets at 3 AM. Knowing you're laying with another man. Got my will, fight, and strength in the palm of your hand.   I am foolish to fall in love
What is it about you that leaves me out of my mind? All alone in the dark reaching out for a sign. Remember when you were all all mine. Resurrect my smile. Resurrect Me.  
i need someone whose gonna love me and nurture me during my ups and downs For i cannot walk this path by myself  But it seems falling in love and settlin is not the plan mother venus has Forget fallin in love just being loveful is how im gettin do
The smile so beautiful, so enchanting that no one sees the pain and the anger in the eyes  or the tears falling to the cheeks.  They're all busy looking at the smile. "Be strong. Be happy."
What does going through a breakup and being cheated on and being betrayed feel like?   It feels like I have to wake up every  morning with a smile on my face and 
They asked me what are some different types of drugs For me a drug isn't cocaine or pills it's a person  He is my drug  He is what I got addicted to  He is what makes me feel like i'm floating 
I don’t know how to write about you and tell the truth.   Bare bones, hands shaking, nothing left to do but fill the page. I don’t think I’m at that stage.  
Oh Oviedo, Florida How I adore you I’ve never seen you But I know where you are   Jacquelyn and Amanda Talk of road trips heading West
Tired bone and sorrowed hand, Make of thee all that you can. Build thy life of hope and tear, Of all thy love and all thy fear.  
In my dreams Is the only place I can be with you Without remorse Or pain In my dreams I am full of life And love And hope Happy And home with you
Heartbreak, It’s inevitable No way around it But the joy of the happiness Before the pain Is almost worth it  
I noticed you, Walk with her this morning, Hand in hand She’s very pretty, Match your own beauty Who is she?   Is she the last person you think, Before you go to sleep?
From afar I saw it, Flying with its gorgeous wings Among the flowers But when I touch it, It flew away   The butterfly is just like you,
She didn’t know, What would happen, when he came to her life She wasn’t aware That she slowly changed, to another person for him  
Her face is broken with tears, Her heart is shattered with grief. Holding no sympathy, his face was blank. His heart is cold and dark. Love destroyed them,
i cried i cried so much i cried so much, over him he hurt me he he doesn’t hang out with me he touched her he was only supposed to touch me he did our thing with her
I don’t know why I do this to myself Consistently putting myself through hell You on my mind and my heart on my sleeve   Every time I’d ever misconceive
They say she once smelled of burning ashwood and cinnamon.The smoky aroma enveloped her being year round,
    It’s taken about five years to understand what exactly Love  Is,  Was,  And could be Let me begin the story of what once our love was  Laughter, Grace, Death, Beauty, Deep rooted Emotion 
My friend, you betrayed me. What relief there is in that simple statement! Your actions so entirely obliterated Your pillar of my world that your betrayal Has lost its sting and I am left without a doubt:
Dedicated to someone special .
there is a photoof you and ihanging on my walllost in the clusterof my favorite memoriesa photo breaking my heartbut i cant take it downyou're still my favorite memorycollecting dust.
here is what i know: you loved meand i you.i wrote about youas if you hung the moon in the sky.as if you created a world of color a world of beauty.a world for us. 
I wish she tasted like cherry A hopeless, cliche, passion So I don the cherry chapstick For a bittersweet illusion   Her velvety lips are strawberry I don't mind strawberry
Air is an acquired taste That most want to breathe But my own air is two parts heartbreak One part grief It burns my lungs It burns my lips It burns my tongue  
December 10th, 2018. A horrible memory.  Sadness swells. Tears start to fall. To everyone else that day is just a day. To me,  That day was the worst day of my life. Winter passes.
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
After all, we are all under the same sky and shall end by the same fate.   ~awatr
Someone moves;  I flinch and instantly my mind is pulled back to how you were.   ~awatr
you said you wouldnt break my heart because you knew how much it hurt   you said i would
I could hear the wind, rustling through your veins, when you opened your mouth and the gnarled wings of a hummingbird fell out. I could taste the regret,
deep breath, deeper, deeper yet, deeper than the ocean of your   eyes that keep calling me home, calling me back back to the  
I loved her, she said I convinced Her otherwise  That broke my heart  Was she my sweetheart?   I’m not sure.. Do I still love her now? Of course I do, but I was a fool
it started so sweet, i actually thought you cared about me. but now i see these were things you wanted me to believe we were living in a fantasy, a world of make believe full of smiles and laughter,
you think you can play with my heart boy i’m not a fucking harp. you think u can treat me like shit sexualize me just to submit. i’m not a part of your little game, your big charade
shivers down my spine at the thought of you leavin' me behind after all that we have been through you made me think it was always gonna be me and you now, as you head for the door 
You were there when I needed you the most… When I was breaking under pressure, Like a sapling overburdened with snow. I always thought of myself as a mighty oak,
i will never wish for you to come back. or even to visit. i will only spare my love and all good energy, but keep it at a distance.  
Snowflakes quiver on the  edge of something new, knew there would be no return afterwards.  The snow collected and stuck together  -birds of a feather-  the land grew cold, 
I see it there, a beautiful rose, though now only a tiny green bud shows. It will slowly blossom into an elegant flower, that represents love on the midnight hour. It’s lovely petals so delicate and thin,
I was never complete to you, the scattered mess of unspoken words and boiling emotions was far too much to piece together by your own hands.
The thing about broken mirrors.. Is they tend to mirror other things.. Like your heart after a fall.. After you give it your all..
I’m the type to creep up on your mind at 3 in the morning Leave you in wonder if you should hit my line or let me be The impact I have on you leaves you wondering what it could be If it would be If it should be 
I Gave Up So Much For One BOY. I Lost Myself. I Gave My Heart, Mind, And Body To One BOY. I Lost Myself. 
I carry it with me Wherever I go  Beats now and then  Always too slow I hope it beats once again I’ll give it back to you, and we’ll be just friends So here is your heart  Keep it safe my dear 
 When the rain has dried on windows, do you think of me? The aftermath of a downpour Nothing but a resin left, ugly, tainted Or do you hire the cleaners out? wipe away any memory, start fresh New windows  
And just like the serpent tempted Adam and Eve with the forbidden apple, the burning desire for you to be mine led me into your coils of damnation.
Hello darling How are you I think it's time we left the zoo Stop looking at them and focus on you After all you are becoming brand new Your pain needs to heal And then you can feel But for now,
They say that if looks could kill... But you were more like my cyanide pill. ~awatr
My mind, much like our population, was overcrowded and easily won over by the simplest romance.   ~awatr
I cannot help but picture you in a garden, laying amongst the wildflowers.   ~awatr
my thousand pound heart lie dormant in my chest feeble now from the effort bumbling softly through my sweater I don’t notice the warmth anymore   cold wind stings my cheeks red
At that moment,  I let you go. I felt my heart let you go. And it was the most refreshing feeling I have ever felt.  I still love you - But I'm not your prisoner.  and I never will be again.
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 need to stop falling in love with people who set a fire in me only to get themselves warm; and to watch me slowly, burn away
Heartbreak is my greatest muse. When all I can do is think about you, why shouldn’t I write it all down? It’s my thoughts and my feelings too. I still see in my dreams almost every night. You live in my heart but not in my life.
I have a question for you.   How can two people who thought they were going to be together forever, how can two people who had what we had   end up like this?    
Dancing on the floor Singing cheerful songs The world rotates for each movement that is made Stained in vibrant hue are the lights that illuminate the room
I could see her face Deep in the storm clouds Smiling at me Saying “Come here,” but how?   I got the crew to safety  Told them to go to their wives But I couldn’t go
I remember crying myself to sleep, seeing no hope for the future. If only Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother could see the damage they inflict on me.
Tonight I lay here listening to the crickets, while you lay there listening to her breathe. You fall asleep with no thoughts of me, all the while I'm wide awake thinking about all the things I could've said to make you stay with me. 
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.
your presence opened up a new ray of sanguinity that enveloped my soul into a layer of diminished sanctuary that i embraced wholeheartedly and nourished like a decaying flower
You don't love me.You want to love mebut You don't love me. I don't know why I helpI'm the one who needs helpYou don't ask for helpBut I need to help.
I spread the tips of my fingers against the smooth wood of my table- elongated so there’s enough room in the center for a bouquet of roses.I never thought I’d be given roses: a traditional statement.
You pop pills  They popped you You drained bottles They drained you You lit up They lit you You shot up They shot you And now you're gone Every part of you, not just the addict 
I am only 17 And working at Mickey D's Drive thru Only to see you drive thru Higher than a kite And flirt with them big brown eyes How I wish I was as high as you are
waves of desire. stormy days and his ocean eyes, and a world of hurt being left to decipher what I did I did wrong, what put me so far away from what I wanted even after I wrote you a song
i’m looking for something that’s gone once again i don’t know who you are, can i call you my friend? there’s a hurt in everything i say and i do  because everything seems to remind me of you
PART I Cupid’s bow spoke to me Its Honduran mahogany Cut piece by piece And carved into shape Etched with a design
You told me, "It's over..." again. I know that, Jorge... It's been over. You know that and I know that.. And of course... You KNOW I know that.. So who was the validation for?
There's a place for everything and everything in its place.. Well, where do I put the memories of the past I can't erase?
If I could build the truth for you, I'd make it out of titanium steel... I'd weld it together with all of the reasons -WHY- I STILL feel the way that I feel...
FOR: My Ex Now, but My Love ONE 4ever.. J.G. (*BTW, MOST of poems are about him....) I'm glad you took everything that would remind me of you.. Cause I don't want to remember anything we went through.
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. 
The only thing that is true Is that they all look like you In the dark.  
they told me don’t if youre gonna leave him they told me don’t if youre gonna break his heart and yet  i decided yes and i fell
The one who clims to love me But the one who often isn't there A walking contradiction The angel on my shoulder The devil whispring in my ear Get out! Or stay Whichever one you chose to do
Mentor. It was the one word I felt I could call you. Our bond was too strong for "teacher" Friendship a forbidden term Mentor was the only word fitting.   Savior. 
Now I'm packing up my things, From the space where our hearts overlapped. You've left a few items I know that you'll be back. I'm not going to be there You can have my key, I'm leaving this place
You say you love me I take a deep breath and repeat that in my mind You say you love me As your holding me crying.  I can feel your hand digging into my arm 
I find myself in a waking realization, Away went the sadness and the sinning temptations. The more I don’t think, the more I forget,
I've seen things I never meant to see And dreamed of places I'll never go With you   Well, maybe you're just an archetype But not the soul sent to save mine From you  
Image by Belinda Capol   I am terrified that one day I will wake up and you will be gone. it will all be a dream and she’ll be there, her hair tied up staring at a screen
Never live with malice  Living in a fantasy like Alice  U plus me and our own palace  Your not a a target but I  prey like a mantis  Love lost like Atlantis Pain took advantage
You leftand part of medied But not my lovefor youmy love isas aliveas my smile
You wanted meto have,and I quote,"a great summer" Yet you leftthat same summerBut you're notthe first one
Now that I cometo think about itall my painful daysstart somewherein between July
If only he loved meit would all be good If only he kissed memy lips could melt again
I wish you were air so that I could breath you forever
I will disappear into the airthe trauma of the humansin the shadowsand the kiss of suicidePerhaps them won't even noticebut it won't matter None of this will matter because after all
As I write this,tears form inside my eyes my heart achesI'm in painyet I'm numb
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'm sorry for blaming you For everything I just couldn't do And I hate myself by hurting you Feeling this hurt embrace me so beautiful I'm sorry for blaming you For everything I just couldn't do
As my eyes rain this cold, wet sorrow... My heart yearns for a better tomorrow To feel lips brushed against mine Gently pressed, one of a kind. Yes, the cold is trapped in my sweater
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
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
I’ve spent many days contemplating The words to say to you But the words are stuck in my throat Trying to escape   Day after day
I would like to thank My past love For the pain she put me through, And the healing I was forced into   For it was the healing, Stitching of the broken halves of my heart
It sucks that being in a relationship you have to give your everything   Your time, your will, your heart   You are left vulnerable and open  
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
Pain   I trip and fall. I feel pain.   A crush tells me that he does not like me the same. I feel pain.   I get bullied and ostracized on the bus. I feel pain.  
Maybe you don't think of me much Or maybe you don't think much of me But when I take my mind for walks We end up sitting under aspen trees.
you were a rainbow so i too became one to please you yet you cut me so deeply i burst into a multitude of colour yet to you all i'll ever be is black and white
Somewhere along the way My heart just stopped The way your eyes sparkled Seems to be dull My heart saw something  beyond the eye   From then on I wanted to say hi
"Her name written in the moon between the stars, crossed out, covered up with several black ink marks. The tiny spark, the invisible pen, marks all you see but cannot read. That little hope, it still burns faint, the fire burns, always.
April 20, 2017. 12:41 am  
I fell in love at a bus stop I fell in love and came out on top I fell for him and it was my fault I fell in love at a bus stop   Across the rows I crossed alone More than hope
my friend’s funeral was a cloudy day. a joyous celebration of life. the clouds spoiled the ambiance, but the rain never came.  
My smile shines at the sound of his name His chocolate eyes stared only at me But his reputation brought him his fame Why did his looks fill up my heart of glee?   His calm voice brought me home.
So she picked up her pencil  And wrote to the world about the Storm  that left her soaked in golden blood.   Must she be left in pieces  From the gentle winds Of the violent Storm?  
words scribbled across the page in an desparate manner as if the writer might just burst if they can’t release this display of a broken heart. a melody sings its song to a crowd of invisible listeners
My heart breaksEvery time you smileMy mind hazesEvery time you speakMy body numbs Every time you touch meMy soul leaves Every time you kiss me But
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,
You have a beautiful smile, thats what you said. I laughed it off as just pretend. A month then passed and you were there, Right beside me combing my hair. Behind my ear in a loving way,
Bang, Bang. You Shot Me Down. You broke my heart and let me drown. You lost sight of what we had. You didnt care if it hurt so bad. We Fell In Love In A Hopeless Place.
When your heart breaks it oozes misery  and drips down to your stomach  where it knots and twists but you can only clench your fists
I fell in love with her on a Monday.
Here lies the time of which it commenced The days past as every sand Of the hourglass In a fell swoop of descending   If the cosmos were mine to mix And the beauties thereof, mine to possess
He told me I was becoming my mother.A statement that meant,I could do better.They said I look just like her.How the ocean floods my eyes when my heart, Catches on fire,From beating too fast.
Wear my heart on my sleeves I tend to get my arms cut off. Take my kindness for weakness They see me as soft.
Makeshift my body Played all the parts Left me for better To which you depart   Stomped on my fortress Tainted by lies Cradled in darkness Lover despised
As the goosebumps carress my skin so strong, You stole my breath away; you king of thieves. The dulcet croon of love; you lure me with song.
I come to see you during lunch My heart, in pain to much You open the door and you see Me, in all of my vulnerability But you don't bat an eye, much like the other guy You hug me, But not out of love
I once met a man who introduced me to the different sides of love.  He dyed his hair a different color every other week and bound his chest so that no one would question his authority.  
It's like a blade that never stops twisting in your heart. When you fall in love, you fear everything about them. Their very existence is your foundation. You love them so madly you're blinded by it.
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.
Why won't you treat me like I'm perfect? Why won't you treat me like I'm worth it? You ripped my heart right out of my chest You did things to it that I never would've guessed Couples don't treat each other this way
Staring at the walls until 2 a.m.Praying this was a mistake,In the morning will it be too late?It was too late yesterday,  
Rejection. It hurts like a bitch. But sometimes rejection provides a greater picture to one's head. Rejection just makes me feel like I'm not worth love. Or happiness. Or even affection. And it's not the person who rejected me that hurts...
When a woman falls in love, she usually falls pretty hard. It's not that a tricky puzzle takes place of her heart. The goals, dreams, and visions for herself fall apart. 
As I gaze up into the moonlight I can finally wonder if you’re alright... If you were wishing you could hold me just as tight... See my heart was in recovery From a fraudulent lovers discovery
Dear Emotions, Why are you always here? When will you get enough? Dear Emotions,
Bad news bends me down Like snow icing a birch tree How much more can I take before I break?   Splintered into a thousand shards- I can't melt my heart anymore
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
My heart has been ripped apart by your words your seething lies I denied because my love for you made me blind. Where is the light? You laugh at me as your darkness chokes me smothers the light that I wish would come back.
he was a secret that I regret keeping locked away, deep inside my soul he stayed he shook hands with my fearshe befriended my pain
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 believe in the power of ink, The power it brings to create something greatI believe in the power of paperThe power to convey things that you can’t speakI believe in the power of midnight thoughtsWhen sleep doesn’t come easily I believe in the po
Cloudy days won't pass by fast enough. Because my heart is broken and I'm yearning for your love Days feel like centuries since my baby up and left me. Now I'm greving, sad and filled with sorrow
Her heart was ice and It was breaking.. killing her. Slowly she is losing herself, by giving herself to him. The love she was giving him, he was giving to the other girl.
my past defines me, i am, the girl he keeps from his friends, a secret, not good enough, unheard
If I could ask for one more dayThat I could be yoursI’d bask in moments, the love, the security.the purity in our intentionsBefore we refused to speak what was unintentionally mentionedThe lies you’d cry
She, is a girl. With the prettiest face,  The curliest hair,  The shiniest skin,  The carefree persona   She is a Queen.
i spend my days now trying to forget your voice, the same voice that made the my skin stand tall, the same voice that told me everything would be okay,
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,

Our comet. It was a sign. As we sat there under the starry night sky, talking about life and our future together, it was a sign. The breeze was cool and the sky was clear and everything in the world seemed absolutely perfect.
Loving you was like;  running all the red lights Loving you was like being Rear-ended; going airborne through the windshield because a seatbelt didn’t feel mandatory  
I don't remember when I first heard the word I don't remember when I first knew what it meant I don't remember anyone telling me
I see you running through the rain   I know its a stretch Even for my fantastical childish dreams But I still can see it  
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
The promise he made to me about a hundred and one times, he broke. "I will never leave you baby girl," he said and where is he now? Only a shadow of a memory left for me to ponder in my head.
I didn’t want to believe in love, I thought it was like a drug, Something I can’t quit, Something that would split.   But you, my darling, You are too startling. The beauty, the wit,
Aren't best friends supposed to be with you till the end? I thought that to myself as I watched them turn their back. Deceiving is what it's called. Maturity is what they lack. I gave so many, so many chances Yet,
  my brain;  beating faster than my heart what do I use more? the absence of brain is obvious but how do i know when its my heart, thats beating is it smart to love a binding of humans,
I lost my best friend. One person I could tell everything to. One that would not judge or laugh at me. Now we have not talked... I lost my best friend in one day. Why did he leave me... Was I not good enough... Did he find someone better?
You were my present tense And supposedly my future tense Everything seemed fine Until errors were made Now all you ever are Is my past tense
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,
He's once again there, waiting, And hoping that somehow The fate would deem it worthy For them to make a vow.   And though it seems unsightly, And it is frowned upon,
my words have taken  a hiatus from mouth to pages ellipses dance. tell me how to stop this  ache. how do you function  when your lungs forget to inhale?
I can't live without you here My knees grow weak The demons coming near We now don't speak   I loved you so
No one understands why I love you. So, allow me to put it into words. You were the air I breathed, The blood that ran through my veins, The water in my cup.
My heart began to ache I felt my limbs shake I wanted to run I wanted to hide I sobbed And cried Then I began to write I knew it would be quite all right Poems taught me to grow
I wasn't ready for it, I wasn't searching for it  He held my hand, kissed my face  I felt the whole earth shake  The heart is shattering, the mind is fluttering 
Darling, I know I needed to decline. My betrayal is unforgivable. I’m unable to see the grand design. A life without you is unlivable.   Do not tell me our life has been a lie.
Come, my love, to arms, my knight, Come join me in our glorious fight.   The enemy's crawling up my skin,
I came home that night smelling of rain and cigarette smoke and teenage love so deep, set into my pores like the ink on my skin.  
i remember falling in love with you as if it happened yesterday we had only met but you made me feel things i swore i could never feel again
I have late night conversations with the moon  She tells me about the sun And I tell her about you  What we used to do underneath her other half  And during her time when we went our different paths 
A true love’s kiss, a myth yet every girl believes in the princess tale, Believing Cupid with his mighty arrow shoots accurately from his sail, Cuddles, first kisses, anniversaries ever so sweet,
I hate you I hate that you're beautiful I hate that I love you I hate how I hate you I love you I wish you would leave My dear please stay with me  Just for the night  Hold me close
Here I am, again, alone, Wondering what to do. Should I talk to myself? Or watch movies in lieu Of the time I wish I had To spend here with you. Here I am, again, alone, Wondering what to do.
Her heart seemed to of thudded against the floor I looked at her Her mouth agape and a string of blood Slowly drips from her mouth To the floor
the fracture in my soul is buried deep and my mind is cracking with it. eliciting such rage as the red flag waved in front of the gentle bull in a china shop.  the memory of your touch
Sunflower sunflower where have you gone Your sunlight extinguished from this earth Your dark pit of growth trembling , shaken to its core by the ferocity of seasons Sunflower sunflower where have you gone
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.
I absorbed you through my skin like oil you are stuck here in the lines of my fingerprint  burned into the corners of my mind im afraid to look into I hate the taste of you but you run through my veins like blood 
As I grew older I began to see my friends fall in love. I began to see them care for someone with a deeper passion than I have ever seen, And I began to see him feel the same way for her.
my heart aches at the knowledge that i’ve loved you for forever but forever is coming to an end.
The dagger in my heart, It twists, Alas, My love for you has only hurt me. I should have known better Than To fall in love with Nothing less than a prince Who saw himself as little more than a pig.
If I were to have just one wish, I'd wish for just one careful kiss Upon my lips-chapped though they be, Oh, Sorrow! That you can't love me.
Is it over? This war that we have Is it over? Doesn't matter because you took my heart and threw it into a bulldozer   I don’t think I’ve ever been more sad
He tasted like mangosi couldn't place it until the next daywhen his lips were no longe
Get out of  my head.   Get out of my head because it's what's best for me. Get out of my head because it's what's best for you.  
  There are three cranberries left on the counter A reminder of us I can’t seem to wipe away It was different then When we first fell
A perfect bond. Conversations go on for hours with no effort Two passionate hearts  Telling one another "we will make it"    Through love                      Through faith Through patience 
When I have lied to myself and others for so long, It is hard to see who is wrong, We could lie to ourselves like we always do, But since I have had so much more pain to go through,
I keep my heart locked up in a box Guarded by a dextrous black fox   But with a glance from you the fox was slain My heart thrown into a hurricane   Round and round it tumbled and swept
summer my soul shed its skin shell it got too big nowhere to go so it floats my personal cartoon rain cloud blue balloon and me
dear crush can you hear that? the sound of my heart breaking? breaking like claps each syllable you spoke to someone else
People always tell me, there's plenty of fish in the sea.But you just didn't get, that you were the only fish for me.All I ever did was love you...and I just wanted to let you know.
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.
The sky is so empty, So gray and cold, So barren and wasted. Clouds fill the air But nothing more. Scenes of despair and darkness. Sometimes a bird Breaks the moment;
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
It's been one month since I was standing here last. With this wonderful man hosting. And a beautiful partner in the audience.   I had written a poem for them.
I remember Late nights with your skin against mine and our breath mingling in the small space between us. I remember
"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?"
My life consists of heartbreak, It's all made up of shit. Confusion is synonymous With life and life with it.  I hate to look in mirrors To see what's looking back: The sunken eyes, the fatty thighs,
who are we now sometimes i don't feel like we're the same souls whose eager teeth met by the brick river on days like this i wonder what it would be like to be us again-
You told me you loved me You told me that you cared But what we did to sarah… I guess this is only fair   You always kept me hidden I thought you meant it when you said forever you didn’t 
He wrecked me Broke me down piece by piece Through our laughs Our love Our fights Our long nights Our pain Our joy Our hopes Our plans He destroyed each part of me
You look through a glass I know she’s on your mind you cry tears of spite yet your heart remains kind And you keep on wondering How a girl loved as she Would keep you expectant
Meeting you was like finding my favourite song, learning all the lyrics won't take very long. Your eyes had a fire, one I know I'd surely desire. A desire for you to take those gracious hands of yours,
Honestly, what's the point of this game you play? When all you'd rather do is lay up and smoke all day You say over and over to let my guard down but when I finally do
The heart of a lover, eyes of a cheater. Stomach of the deprived, longing for a taste that is sweeter.   The smile of a friend,
Painting Greys
With this being our last moment together, whether or not you know it. I owe it to you to be as honest as possible, but that's impossible to do and not hurt you.
When I saw you last night you looked happy, joyful, even. When I saw you last night, I wanted to hug you because God you don't know how much I miss you. When I saw you last night every memory we made and every kiss we
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.
Sometimes love finds you in your darkest place and signals you hope with a sign of light at the end of the tunnel But sometimes that approaching light is a speeding truck with a fatigued driver who's responses are slowing down
I could see that pain and hatred in your eyes The moment she spurned you as childish and unwise. I know how it feels to be scorned and chastised. I know how it feels to go against those baptized.
Rejected Isolation Hurting more than it should Why did I get so attached? Please let me be Don't make me see your face Beautiful you Versus ugly me World shattering Heart aching
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?
We were in love once, not long ago. You said that you could never let me go.   You kissed me with all of your energy Maybe that's why you set me free  
Can you please make me remember,How we started this fight?‘Cause I can't remember,our last good night. What are we doing?I said I loved you, You said you might. This is a jumbled mess,Do you realize?I look at your face,You look away from my eyes. 
That smile Broke me. Here at the start of suffering I let You, And only You Break my resolve And I simply Couldn't fight The tears Anymore.
Dear Nik,   Do you remember me? Do you recognize me?   Sometimes I wonder If you still think about me The way that I
See, just day before yesterday We were in love He'd smile when he saw me Hold me close Too scared to drop me See, that's how it used to be Still my best friend My number one shoulder
Little do you know How I'm breaking while you fall asleep Little do you know I'm still haunted by the memories Little do you know  
You were the happiest most wild person I’d ever met. Seeing you always brought joy to my otherwise lifeless life.
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.  
to you, who loved me without love:   it has been so long. three years ago You were everything. had not touched me yet
Dear Anon,   The anonymous you. The unknown to the world, but known deep to my heart. You’ve been there. Deep inside of me. You’ve heard the beats and rhythm. You’ve shaped and molded it to the way you wanted it.
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.

I thought I loved you, but I think I fell in love with the thought of you. You kissed me with such passion, and you told me things I know you had a hard time saying,
To the ones who have hurt me the most- I hate that you know when I'm holding back tears; how I play with my jewelry or pinch at my skin I hate that you know how I like my sandwiches-
Don’t tell me pretty lies, With that look on your face, Because although you are beautiful The ugly never fades. There’s beauty in your eyes, And there’s strength that’s in your arms,
Dear Love,   Sometimes, Your soft brown eyes Fill my Stomach with such a strong boiling rage I want to light your curly hair on fire
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?  
Why is love so cold? We sit back and wait til we grow old. In search to find the person of our dreams, We are left to be the one in need. Crying all night with no one to talk to,
Dear Heart, It's me againYes, I know I've been gone for awhile Yes, I still love you No, You are not alone  Cover up Your cracks are showing  Stop bleedingYour color is fading 
To the boy I have feelings for From the girl who can’t take it anymore   What hurts more than heartbreak  is the fact I saw a future But all the damage and pain Lonely, afraid, I’m not sure  
Dear Lover,  I am not a puppy or a little plaything you can choose because you think I am cute,  I am not a creature you can punish for not behaving how you would like me to,
3:50 AM I wish i knew how you really felt. Are you here because you choose to be here, or because you felt that you had to be?    I wish you knew just how hard i've tried.
3:50 AM I wish i knew how you really felt. Are you here because you choose to be here, or because you felt that you had to be?    I wish you knew just how hard i've tried.
I think I'm falling in love with a ghost, dear, I think I'm falling asleep. I see him on the edge of my vision, singing me soft lullabies with ethereal beats.    The ghost's eyes peer out at me,
I am unable to recast The same sun that rose  The day that was our last This isn’t what I chose Glass between our paths I had you in my grasp
Forgive my reach I can't stop I know I should But I can't stop We pick our fruits From the places we love But seasons change
Dear Sam,  Sometimes I'm not sure if I miss you or the way you made me feel. Sometimes I'm not sure if I can live another second without feeling the way you made me feel. Sometimes I'm not sure how you really made me feel.
I love you in the morning, with soft sunlight peeking through the curtains casting over your sleepy face; eyes dazed, smile slanted,
We met in school, but we rarely talked. You waited for me. Then I fell in love with someone else, But you waited for me. When it ended, we were in different classes, Yet you waited for me.
Dear Kelcee, It’s okay that we drifted apart, That’s just how things go sometimes, Just know you’ll always have a home in my heart. It’s okay that your life came crashing down,
You told the bird you don't like the way it sits on my wrist. You don't like how it would permanently stay. You don't like its meaning. And to make you happy the bird would have to sacrifice its own life in pain.
love is just not my thing.  maybe it never was. And never will be.
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.
The tender gift of your gentle lips graced my chilled, red cheeks for the first time   The gift of your tenderness gives me reason
Dear Heartbreak, You're disintegrating me. All of my feelings of happiness are gone. It's been months... why keep torturing me? You're driving me to complete agony. I wish the pain of betrayal and 
I am from a no college family, from a brother in trouble with the law, and another brother with a mental illness.
Fear      breaks The crack of dawn Tossing, turning, yearning Hardly ever learning   People and places Pasts and problems Things I’ll never have the answer— Four Years. 
Dear Jessica,    What does a man feel like? Is he soft like trampled moss? Or scratchy like peeled back bark? Does his smile warm your heart?
Dear Jessica,    What does a man feel like? Is he soft like trampled moss? Or scratchy like peeled back bark? Does his smile warm your heart?
Dear you, You have hurt me deeply    Everything about me is suffering Coated with anger only to reveal the sadness underneath
Dear Him, Your eyes shine so bright, Just as the stars in the sky. I remember the night, You had said good bye. The sparkling sun gleamed down, As I replay the memories;
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.  
Dear lover,   The warming filling of your heart brings satisfaction to my mind. I trust you with all my being to never ever break my heart.  
I could never love  Love someone who has the same name as you  Your name  Carries  Such negative connotations   I could never love your name again
Laith, I once loved a flower so much One day it started to wilt Despite all my efforts to save it Even for just a day It wilted away   That’s what it was like loving you    
Dear Josh,   I know a goodbye is due And I understand that you’re sad too. But my heart is breaking at the seam,
Dear Erin,  
Lark,   My voice could never reach your ears, but I hope this letter might. Listen for a moment, nothing more. Let my moonlit misery reach your heart and fall into you.
To the one that never was and never could be: Muhammad, Alhaji, quickfeet,   While the spirits of the dead Roam the heavens The fairytale we seek Shatters to the extreme While my suicide kisses
Dear boyfriend,  You utter unoriginal, clichés into my ears that sink and make me feel validated. You touch me with sinful purposes so that I feel like I might have a purpose.
someday a boy will break your heart in two consider this a forewarning to you   his eyes brilliant baby blue will consume you entirely
My dearest Zac, The words spilled out of your mouth  Apologies fell onto the table  Excuses splashed into my coffee so that it tasted like lead when I drank it.  You took the stars I once saw in your eyes 
Dear Person Who Broke My Heart, Yeah we all know about heartbreak And Lord why does it always feel like a mistake Making all these feelings start to resonate Like the stars floating in the galaxy
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.  
Dear Mom... I don’t even know where to start with you these days. How are you? It feels weird to say that.  Do you wonder how I’m doing, too? I’m 25 now, A woman. Last time you saw me I was a girl.
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?  
Dear L.B,   Four years ago, He died- My sweet loved one. It was a long, hard death, Taking months to ware him thin. Cancer does that to a person.   I was there when He died.
          I waited for you to fall into my arms. Instead, I just felt you slipping away.                                                              -expectations
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.   
Was it my fault that you didn't tell me I was spending too much time away? Was it my fault I couldn't read your mind? Maybe I'm the fool.
Perhaps I was wrong, maybe my accusations have been oversung.   You were, as far as I was sure, the problem that made me fight.   But as I leave you in the dirt and move on, it seems
To my love--   There’s a shade of pink in the setting sky that reminds me of you. The same shade of pink
sometimes when i'm alone you rattle through my head you are loud yet gentle i make it a point not to listen to you, as if by doing so i am winning a prize if forgetting the last lines of the first verse is the prize
It isn’t as nice as it was three years ago when I knew you loved me, Now it’s more like smiling at you from behind a window with tears in my eyes...
Dear Hurricane Victor,   A hailstorm commenced when I agreed to be yours And you, mine… I often wonder if it was a sign.  
You tell me it didn’t happen like that-- I should just get over it… but I can’t. I can’t forget the words that you’ve said to me,
Dear Casey,   You said you loved me And I left you Because I couldn't do it. I couldn't do it...   You're 24 with a kid, You smoke weed, I met you online,
A twinkle in a kind souls eye,Lights smile with a single try.Sheepish grin, unsure of speach,A brush of hand, while just in reach.
To my Mocha Frappuccino, my first love, my first heartbreak,   Can beauty ever really come out of this pain? Can these words ensure that the suffering was not in vain?
To The Man Responsible--   Your memories come back in flashes like the bright white specks when you sit up too quickly
The branches are empty as the birds have flown. The tree still hopes for new nests to be sewn.   The night has passed and it's time for the dawn. Yesterday is there but the shadows are gone.  
The first thing you notice is the smile. It melts your heart away.He will try to hide it when he realizes that you've noticed.if he does this, just tease him. Tell him not to smile. I promise he will be smiling in three seconds max.
Dear Heartbreaker,    Thank you.  Thank you for breaking me and leaving me. Thank you for destroying my confidence. Thank you for the lies, the cheating, the arguments.
As you embark on this journey of life It is imperative that you know I am with you Although we're miles apart In distance and in heart Somehow, I will remain with you
Dear Unidentified Man,
Sitting in the coffee shop Where once we’d smile My heart did a little hop I saw her for the first time in a while   My hands were shaking 
They tell me I don't need alcohol to have fun. They tell me it's ok to socialize and be happy before getting drunk, but I can't do that after you left.
Dear past lover    I remember opening my heart and difficult life to you . I remember the laughter , first times , and happiness. Past lover I remember you ripping my heart out and not caring.
Your distance has done nothing but destroy my sanity and leave me feeling all messed up. There was once a time you poured your all into me; now, you’re just an empty cup.
I was trying to be conscientious to not think about you, But after closing myself off in a personal quarantine for so long, I couldn’t help but start reminiscing about our relationship.
Dear Christian, I try not to cry as I say goodbye. Perhaps before we meet next I'll die Or maybe you will forget about us. I blame the rat for leaving with a cuss. The lack of you leaves holed my center core.
Dear First Love,   With words left unsaid, and feelings left unexplored, I try to rest my head, as sleep goes ignored.   We were two young kids with the world at our feet.
I tried to be strong But strong is not strong, And crying is not wrong If it happened again I would be weak I would not lie down and take it. I would cry and weep and make it impossible  for you
i'd still do it all over again and every day i fell for you i hoped you would love me too but you wouldn't maybe i was wrong for thinking you'd stay but i never figured
Everyone tells me what I did wrong and how to fix it for next time. Next time. Next time there won’t be a next time. There are too many holes and trysts and trails in my heart I’m shutting it all down.
It started cute...  like any normal relationship  we talked everyday,  learning eachothers loves, dreams and passions.  I told you what I was...  You said that you didn't mind. 
to my best friend, call it whatever you want whatever this was it was us two stubborn teens stuck in this cycle going back and forth
          Dear Samantha, My dearest Samantha. This letter has found you which makes my heart soar  to the heavens. I cannot hide my feelings for you within, so I include them in this letter.
I see your shirt, I see you in it,  Then back out of it again.   Every night I end up in the same place, At the bottom of the hole that you dug for me.
    wrap me in your love again. blanket plush, velvet crushed. make me feel again. misery, over and over.
My dear raging wildfire love, It really just takes a small spark to start the fire, But when it takes control, It takes over, engulfing everything,
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
Of a melancholy tone She is through with you Look at what you have done And the madness you've put her through Just consider her gone You manipulated her heart Always the one to torture
Dear My Future Ex,   I'm tired of all the lying and the cheating, Our alliance suffers from treason,   Whenever we talk, we're fire breathing, Only time we aren't fighting, is when we're eating,
With everything that's happening,Between you and me and them,I'm just starting to realize,The things I've been missing out on, In the days I've been gone.I didn't want to wait long, But I'm afraid of putting myself out in the open, So here it goes
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 know you probably have had millions of different people around the world seek out to you. People of different skin tones and cultures, who have been searching for you their entire life's and not to even have a glimpse of you. The real you.
Dear Person, I thought I knew, The day we met I was at my best, life was full and my heart was beating out of my chest,
A smile one day changed everythingI didn't know then, how could I?One doesn't just jump from one to the nextBut, is it worth it?Future can be surrounded with success and happiness,or fraud and despair
Love is a thing with Arms,it loves to craddle you when most weak -It listens to your thoughts and changes them- All you do is out of love-But what is love might I say-Dreadful tears and sorrowful alibies
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.  
Time. It's been 1 week. You've stopped talking to me and it makes me think, Everything is not what it seems. You've stopped with the cute nicknames. You've stopped and I feel like I'm to blame.
Dear Rebekah, I always take a look at you when you're not aware, But most times you catch me looking and I find it so unfair That the stars in your eyes twinkle, when you see him and not me,
This poem reflects a bad relationship: Dear whoever cares, My heart hurts. My stomach hurts My chest hurts. It's my entire body actually. I feel like I forgot how to breathe. This isn't right.
to the person i can’t forget,   the sun sets, taking my happiness with it. the same way you left, taking parts of me with you. and i realize, after you left,
  im sorry Yall probably wont ever see this but this needs said im sorryI know at times it appears otherwise but i love you all truly i always have
Dear ex-lover,    You say that it's not always about me as if this fear of not being enough of ruining every good thing in my life
dear heartbreak,
Girl, just turn the page He never was into you All he did was criticize And broke your poor heart in two It was nothing but a facade A masquerade at that Do not drown in sorrow
To My First Love, Oh boy did I love you. We went from nothing to everything in under a month. A couple of dates, to hanging out every single day. I was on top of the world with you.
  I thought I knew you, The you sitting there, With an eager smile, You would take to a chair. A chair beside me,
If I were to see you again I'd run to you Wrap my arms around your neck And bury my face in your shoulder I'd inhale so deep my lungs burst with your scent
My summers used to consist of waking up to the sun high in the sky, riding bikes around the neighborhood, and slip n slides.  But as time went on, and I got older, the neighbors moved aw The water fights, replaced with my phone.
Dear Grandma, I'm doing fine. Thanks. How are you? ... How long has it been since I last wrote? Couple weeks. yeah. ... huh? ... Like really wrote?
Liberation, She called it, Discharging pet Lovebird from the Foreign shackles Named commitment  
Dear first love, You left me scarred Positively and negatively You know everything you did right but little of what you did wrong.
Winter has whispered it's gentle song, above and below, like an ancient tongue.   The streets are frosted, much like her eyes. I can't find her, not even amidst the blue suburban skies.  
I left a ghost, on the curb of a suburb at midnight.   We parted ways, and I mumbled goodbye.
You can keep the flowers, carry my words, leave with tide.   And keep the winter silence, you so willingly traded me for.
Dear What Could've Been,  hey. this is kind of weird. i know you but you dont know me i think about you a lot actually  i wallow in the idea of you  i savor each moment  moments 
Ok I can do this  Hi... There... No that’s not right  Hello, how’s it going? That’s not it either  Hey... Oh you’re gone.  
I want the version of you Made up in my head That comes to me in dreams But my heart knows That she’s not the same you Who left me shaking
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
Dear Loss,   I am watching you walk away (for the God-knows-how-many-th-time), but this time it is different.  
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
To wake up to the sound of my own broken heart that is the worst way to start the dayTo wake up thinking about how you leftmakes me want to drive a knife through my heartTo wake up not knowing the future of us
I write this poem To my grandmother A sister, a friend, A wife, A mother   The sweetest being One could know An uplifting spirit If you were low   She wore that smile
Your beady eyes are as dark as the night Your hair is too long and must be cut soon Your presence beside me doesn't feel right When you speak to me I no longer swoon Your sister's red car pulls out of the lot
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
  For a moment I heard your voice, for a moment time stopped just so I could notice you. You’ve changed so much, it’s clear that everything between us is now different.  
To the girl with the beautiful soul,  
last october english class our gaze meets you smile and turn away this moment, haunting my thoughts for days on end I twist everything I've heard you say  making myself believe you like me
Falling Once again Too deep to try to swim Falling For him I need to stop I'll just get hurt He will just hurt me in the end But im falling Into his ocean eyes
Falling Once again Too deep to try to swim Falling For him I need to stop I'll just get hurt He will just hurt me in the end But im falling Into his ocean eyes
To all young people considering returning to a boy who forfeit his right to be called a boyfriend I have some advice  
Te quiero mucho. Mucho. ¿Por qué no lo vez? Eres mi mundo. Tienes mi corazón. Te quiero en mis brazos. Te amo.
All I want for you is to laugh with me.  I want to make you laugh. I want to hear you laugh next to me. The sound that sounds oh so good to me. The sound that my ears never get tired of.
Run away into her arms You’ll be safe there Drowned in expensive perfume Gluttony, let me eat the envy 12 batches of burnt chocolate chip cookies  
Early dawn in the bed when you cried out for your mother And you choked on your tears as they rolled you down the stairs They said by god’s grace but it was really just a stretcher and sirens
I never knew what it was like to feel so broken  you couldnt get out of bed because you didnt want to face the world But after years Of having the weight of the world on my soul
i feel you in my           bones you are the breath caught    in my lungs and running through   my       veins and maybe thats why  i find myself        running the blade across my
  Dang, another hour passed Here, thinking ‘bout our past Time slipping through our hands Like an hourglass. And I just sit here and just laugh,
You are an artist when it comes to words.  Your tongue is the brush, my heart the canvas.  You knew just the words to paint my heart  the color of love you promised me.  You charmed me with reds of passion. 
I said i’d leave you alone But nights like these make me want to talk to you. You’re the piece of my youth & desperation That god no longer wanted to carry.
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 can feel their love, feel how much they care. Yet, is it enough to keep me from the thoughts that lurk in the back of my mind, swiming in the pool of insecurites, splashing its poisonous water
Girl, his heart was never there But you decided to stay You were blindsided by love He has sadly, led you astray You have suffered a great deal What a tough lesson to learn Next time just open your eyes
To The Girl Who Has His Heart Now,
  How could you let me grow so fond of you? When I said “I love you”- I meant it. I use to think you did, too. No longer do I believe that lie
You used to say The only way You could ever sleep Was in my arms So when did it change That I was the one Wandering at night And you were the one Finding solace in sleep?  
I only started Praying again When I thought that god Might give me a hand So for the second time In my life I lay awake at night Reciting the Lord’s Prayer Every single night
There is another sky With another life Where our names aren’t etched Onto my bones Poisoning my roots   Where stars don’t hold My wishes long gone There to taunt me
There you are where I could always admire from afar See your light, Its radiant colors Melting into the ocean waters   Here I am
Dear mother,  I banged on your bedroom door with a bleeding heart you pretended to be asleep I hate you  I came home and found a note on my bed, in which you wrote
IF I COULD CHANGE THE PATH I DECIDED TO FOLLOW    what a fool I was;  i exposed  the depths of my soul to you  on dreary cloudless nights when the moon was high  and the only thing 
Dearest Jon, I'm back. Once again I remember your face and long for your touch when my mind  s i n k s to the depths reserved for sleep depreived nights.

Dear child,   Unravel me. I am lost, a spider embedded in her own web. Push, fidget, scratch, claw Fingernails on their death bed. Gnawed by fear, gargled by pain, Spit out by forgiveness.
She has decided to walk away Because, you did not treat her right Nothing but a chaotic scene Situations sadly, ended in a fuss or fight Face the reality of the matter She often drowned in tears

For the first time. Sad love songs Didn't make sense anymore. The melody would twist into my ears, But my brain did not remember The familiar guest; She was rejected at the door.
In a second Mutuals become companions From jokes to sincerity From half-hearted chats to imersive colloquy   In a second Companions tie themselves together Silver shiny peal
Isn't strange. Isn't it weird. To know someone so well but find their favorites feel like a rubix cube. Their favorite color a mystery Their favorite food a riddle
Seeming sweet Yet turning salty Worlds reversed A lovely treat But quite faulty Something still lurks Dictionary's anguish Sunshine's despondence Aroma's maliase Once a wish
A ring rests lightly on my finger No not a golden band, A simple piece of metal,
dear love, you are a nightmare dressed as a miracle. you are misleading. you are troublesome. but somehow, you always seem beautiful. you always seem to pull me in
If I share my mind, will that be of higher value than my body? If I share my words, my thoughts, fears, passions,  will that be of higher value than my kisses, my hugs, touches, caressing hands?
Sometimes I can't tell if I'm falling in love with the person or the moment. Sometimes I wish I could still dwell in my depression with you. It felt easier. At least I wasn't alone.

“We need to move on,” you say. I pretend I’m okay. I lay in my bed, staring at the ceiling. The same ceiling I would look at while in the bed with you. I imagine every touch so vividly I almost feel it.
Dear you, It has been awhile I know. My heart has been hurting and my bones are becoming dry.   Dear you, I’ve ignored your cries, I’m sorry.
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

To my ex-lover, You were my first real love, My first serious relationship. You taught me how to be in a relationship, How to love, How to be compassionate, How to commit.
You are just standing there in the dark The look on your face seems grim The lady of your life has taken lots of abuse Your outlook looks mighty slim She feels battered and betrayed
Dear most loved lover,  I sat here ... and thought of you.  I felt something everytime you spoke, everytime you breathed.  I want to say it was fear because then I would have a reason to leave you,  -to protect me-
Childhood's games with my best buddy turned into    his father "breaking up" with me for him in front of my mother. All night video games binge-sessions shifted into routines of staying in my bedroom all  night
Dear God, He just committed a fraud. He promised to never leave, And made me believe. Oh, why? Have I been told a lie? Now I lay confused, And my heart is bruised. Oh, please guide me,

I thought that if I gave you your stuff back, then your ghost would leave me. And I thought that if I flirted with other guys, I'd forget the words you told me before. But the truth is, everything I do makes my heart ache more.
Dear Rose,  
To whom it may concern, Actually, you’re the one that should be concerned. I would say your name but even when I call on your name You still don’t listen.

"The windows to our soul", they are often named, an indicator for first impressions - or feelings. Blessed as they were, when I first saw you.  Though sadness you emanated, curiousness I took in.
Approximately, there’s a 1 chance in 10^390 (it’s in scientific notation, and it happens to be quite the number, biggest number here actually.) of life on earth, it is so near to impossible that it would never happen in the 13 billion years or so

I hate you. The thought of you makes me insane. The way you manipulate when you look at me with eyelids heavy and lips curled.
Our love was bright red,  You made me fall quick and hard, Then tore me to shreds. 
because i love You, i don’t mind being ignored by You. i don’t mind being in this one-sided relationship which i know will destroy me. but because i love You,
11 days I can't believe it 11 days and we are going to be the happiest couple for 6 months
I drank the poison, And became addicted. You warned me to ease off of it, Then you went and flipped it. You became addicted to my addiction. But when I lost my supply, You made sure I got high,
We were born from the same star But stars burn out So we did the impossible We fell here To this safe haven But what is safe when it's gripped by your screaming? Can nudes save us?

It's a crowded room, but all I see is summer rain on cobblestones, and through a rain-stained lens, something points my vision to you. Like the headlights of two cars behind red lights at a midnight
I look in the mirror And see everything he couldn't. I see the angel kisses spread across my skin Even the one on my lip. I see the gentleness in my eyes And the hope in my smile.
Dear momma Thank you for giving me Real Love The kind of love where I feel safe enough To be myself and shine Real Love
Healthy love, is not one sided it is more than a rush once two people are united it is to put full trust in someone and not wanting to let go it is not listening and going with the flow
Sorry. I'm sorry. I fucked up, I know. It doesnt mean anything now but if somehow it means something, I only meant well.   I only wanted to feel what it was like
Because I Love You,
Because I love you, I decided to stay I listened to every possible excuse that you had to say   Because I love you, I clung on until the very end
"I like you too."  Something that I,  for five years,  have longed to hear  you tell me.  My heart throbbed  with ecstasy,  My stomach panged  in surprise, 
You love me, I sit in my room playing games. You tell me you love me. I love you, I sit at my desk in my room playing games. You tell me you love me. You love me, I sit on my bed in my room playing games. You tell me you hate me.
you’re nine years old. At this time, you’re starting to lose esperanza.
I used to obsess about my books being perpendicular on the night stand; that was of course before you found your way into my life.
I know what's wrong.  I'm so afraid to jump and fall My heart wants to jump She thinks it's worth it, she's been hurt but not enough. My mind sees the hurt and warns of the danger
I tried it. I will try anything once. I tried to trust you, believe your promises. I tried to follow you even if you were wrong. I tried to love you, trust me this time.
I wonder if you know what you do to me or what happens when you look into my eyes.   And I wonder if a heart could break from strain of staying away too long.  
I'm sorry.   I'm sorry for the lies, the things I've done, and constantly reminding you how little I care.  
Because I love you I send good morning texts And goodnight texts Because I love you I remind you to eat And make sure you're okay Because I love you I break down knowing we won't last
The world doesn't understand our love. It cannot comprehend the myriad of emotions you make me feel. They do not see us the way we do, Only seeing us as two females in a heteronormative society.
it's late to be thinking about youwe went our separate ways over two years agobut we also said i love you a little over three years agothat's what sticks with methat you left and how you were my first love
All my life I have been taught to work towards my desires- And turn them into possessions. And for the most part, I have been successful.
Wish to cut deep into my skin, Past the bones and intestines, To my inner layer of blood and marrow To take away my pain tomorrow Wish to drown inside the water Were even sound does not bother
The Words Spill onto  The paper in Dropletts of agony Things that left my mind When the tenderness of the moment Encapsulated me in the Woven Tapestry of  Your adortion
  You wouldn’t know it if you met her But her moods can make Hurricanes in your soul Storms that pour and destroy And seem to last forever
Did I call you beautiful enough? Was I so careless as to Confine those words to a feeling? That time you sat on the counter While we made heart-shaped cookies
Aching, Screaming, Pounding Pain, Spin my world and Split my brain.   It hurts, It mars,
Those innocent smiles and hugs Did they give your heart a tug? Make you fall deeper and deeper each time Make you wish you were all mine   My heart swayed with your sensation My threads too bare
Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in America in all genders.  It penetrates your atriums, obliterates your aortas, and annihilates your artery’s.  They say nothing sucks the life out of you like Death.
You enter a farmer’s market There is a wide range of fruits From oranges apples pomegranates and yes Even the controversial tomato    
 Toxic thoughts arrive uninvited   Memories of love unrequited Undecided on what’s there for me, I wonder why you weren’t  there for me Everyone said, “Tread carefully”, I was running on ice and never knew I fell in
When you were my craving, you crippled desire, gave aid to aversion, extinguished our fire. We flickered and faulted in ashes, your potion of passion was potent but proved to be altered. It may be you,
Spoken Communicated Listen   Comforted Focused Responded   Stopped Stopped Stopped  
I am sorry, it is time for me to depart I have seen the person that you really are Yet, he wishes for me to stay Pulling the same trick just so I stick around for another day
You Are the hope around my neck. The pendant on my chest rests on the Padlock to my blood that Stained all over the dress you stressed to see me-
What they don’t tell you about being pretty is that boys will kiss you without your permission and lead you into their bedrooms when their parents aren’t home
Because I love you I believe your lies when you tell me I’m your everything   Because I love you I listen to your evil slurs when you drunkenly push me against the wall  
Your shoulders held up with gilded rope. Delicate, as if gliding on the wind. My words slip, voice chokes and drowns, and for an insignificant time, I’m lost and strung out. The moment came and the moment
Do you want to know why dreams are better than reality?   In dreams, you can be with people who you could never be with in reality. You can hug and hold them with no fear of separation.
Do you want to know what my biggest fear regarding you is? Do you want to know what I worry about the most when I look at you?  
He was a child when he figured out his life plan. Heartbreaker. Maybe he know his future occupation would consist of broken Tears seamlessly Streaming
he looked me in the eyes and told me please don't cry "it was only this one time i'd never re-commit this crime"   it's been three years since still every time i hear his name, i wince
Becasue at one time I love you: I let you touch my soul you had the magic touch two mend my torn heart At three you kept my bed warm like a burning piece of coal  when no one else was there four me 
As you were the light that rose upon my life the day you sung your beautiful melody to me, I never wanted you to leave; but if your happiness depended on it then that's all I ever wanted was for you to be happy,
it scares me  how much control you have over me if I give you my heart will you tear it apart?   I find it kind of frightening how you struck me like lightning scars on my heart
For my entire life I never had a close friend And a life of outlandish interests Outcast me from the mainstream And left me in a bubble.
i guess i’ll back away from you, untangling the knots i’ve made around the concept of us. why does love always leave me with scabbed knees from landing too hard on the concrete.
I heard you in the wind The whispers were your voice I felt you in my bones The sweetest familiar noise I saw you in the waves
Summer time, crisp hot air, beautiful blue sky, and calmness, Heart damaged along with a wall built up the highest; trying to forget, Walking to the corner store to get some drinks, 
  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'm afraid of change Afraid of not knowing What the next person Will be like with me Afraid of what they Might think about me Will they leave me Empty, alone, vulnerable Writing a poem in
I want to be with you all the time Because I love you I want to not be miles apart Because I love you Don't talk to other guys Because I love you Don't talk to anyone, just go home
I should have known better than to stare into your eyes for too long Or to read into your touch Now I sit here, pulling at strings But there is nothing to grab I thought, for a moment, that I might have you
Because I love you I find it hard to breathe The walls crash down on me Filling my lungs with screams Screams that suffocate
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 will call you Dear, I will let you yell too, I will ignore my fears. Because I love you, I will hold in these tears, I will smile for you, I will call for help.
It’s been a few days, Since I’ve looked in your eyes But I know the joy is gone, And you feel empty inside. I peek over my shoulder, Catch you turning away. You think I didn’t notice,
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?
If my heart were a garden, Words flowers, I would suffocate in the weeds of your silence.
I was sixteen And with an open heart I did dream and fantasied alot I was loved and knew it I strolled to adulthood en route I fell in love and my imaginations widened I would lay awake all night
Cut me open tear me apart, This life wasn't chosen, so rip out my heart.   Replace it with stones so that I may turn cold.   Only then will I not care and still know
When the one you love most is getting hurt, what do you do? I knew her the best; we spent so much time together, it's impossible anyone surpassed our closeness.
My heart was hungry, a mouth to feed It thumped in my chest, the sound like a thousand pounding feet flooding the streets of the Big Apple You appeared, close but out of reach,
It's 1st January Happy new year That's all I could write on the card I was a little apprehensive as to what you'd say But I was a bit anxious too Had you rejected the card or made a seen What then?
A phrase that can mend a heart or break it into a million pieces
I Love You means so little When You're Crazy hurts so much I Love You Means so little When your heart is too cold to touch I thought you wanted the best for me Tell me, was it true?
Motherless Fatherless -child, alone in the world looking for direction.She's missing her fathers protection and her mothers affection.What she wouldn't give for just a moment so Surreal-- to feel, the touch of them both.
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.
I waded in the waters of nostalgia, of heartbreak.   Dancing under the veil of midnight glamour, the ghost of laughter admist unkept promises.   Silence, fractured her,
Maybe sunsets remind me of you, because I'm always left with the view of watching you fall, each time for someone else.
I turn away, from the beauty of the falling sun, hoping I can turn away from you.
because i love you i will still wish you the best and hope you are happy even though i am not i will wish the best for you even when you find another person to help you fix yourself
Every inch of my skin where you touched me now burns Every emotion you made me feel must burn Every memory of us will burn   I do not hate you I hate what you did The things you said
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  
What can I say or do?I've begged you to stay but it seems that's the reason you walked away, giving me the excuse it's me, not you.With my heart torn into two what was I suppose to do?Sit around and cry, I've tried and I still feel awful.I've talk
Giving, giving, giving, giving, giving, no take I thought that just for once, my heart would catch a break Break as in rest, but instead the shit shattered
That boy. That boy you see on Instagram, You think he is cute? Well on the outside He is… But on the inside He will crush you. He will break you. As soon as you connect with him,
Once upon a time in suburbia not far, there lived a middle aged women who lived on a hill.
Rotten Core. That's what I found of you the one I adore. Adored. Once you came to my house with that apple, Charming, your smile full of esctacy
It's been a while since you shattered my heart. You left me all the memories to remember, i don't regret any cause I loved you from the start. I still see your smile in front of me, i still feel your touch on me,
The cave that protected me from the outside storm seems to be falling apart from withinLarge stones drop from the roof and the crash bounces off the wallsThe whistling and ringing in my ear are deafening The collapse forces me out And the storm co
The years passed so swiftly, And swiftly so too did I fall in love, My only life’s desire for you to embrace me,
It was pure luck I saw her from far away From the darkness of the brush And I prepare my jaws to crush   Her name was Little Red
We carved our future into the starsAnd then sat back and watched them float And boy did they move TwistingLeapingDancing through the night They spoke our lives Only,
You left a hole a mile wide And now I know how it feels to die This burning pit and vast alone I hate that you left but I’m glad you’re gone How could you shred my heart like this
Innocent eyes, hope alive, secret desires, tongue tied, plastic smile, Manipulative mind, genuine heart, conflictive thoughts, emotions rot,
I know you don't want to talk to me because you need to breathe but I'm restless without you  they say the only ones up at 4am are the loved and the lonely  but I'm broken You see
I cupped you in my hands and i said you couldn't leave. How silly of me. You burrowed your way through my ring finger and fought your way free.   I saw a picture of me and you today.
Why? Am I like this? I'm sick of you...   I hate you,  a little. Not a lot, but I hate you. at least a litt.le.   I'm trying, to figure out what
my eyes won't get any less redand my heart won't get any less deadif you were to buy me everything in the world,or lay me down in bed
as if pulled by strings two puppets of the same master lift their cups to open lips fill themselves spill over the edges drink each other in think of love and of sin and the convergence of fate
The last step I took was forwards, then backwards that's like riding in a Benz and then pushing an Acura I always tell this sob story, they say don't chase after her
I let you inside of my brain, didn't understand why you caused me pain, I find myself waking up in the middle of the night, Trying desperately to feel alright,   There is lead in my bones,
Your voice haunts me. Your image dances in my head. I cannot escape this feeling that's been filling me with dread. I am in a constant cycle of anxiety and despair, 'cause every time I go to sleep,
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
And then the rustling Of my shaking trust Fills my heart Those shards of betrayal Go deeper than I thought Hurting more than I had anticipated
It's some things I wish I could delete from my memory Like the way we used to be I wish I could un-feel the safety I felt with your arms around me     Wish I could outrun the thoughts that chase me 
I fell in love once and that will never happen again People say there are plenty more fish in the sea but no, not for me  See love like this was supposed to be a dream    At first it was rose petals and silver bells
The stitched wound was ripped open The heart bledIt ached like an earthquakeThat didnt seem to end Breaths waverBody shakes Please save herBefore she breaks 
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,
There is a voice in the back of my skull that screams for release, That can only be found in a razor blade, or between your lips. If I pick and prod at my flesh enough I realize soon enough I can't feel anything,
You know that moment in your life where you just want to die? because you feel that it absolutely could not possibly get any worse; I felt this before I met you.
I look at you and I cannot believe that you don't know can't feel my depth of love, cannot reach your hand inside my heart and pull yourself out. I wonder feverishly
11:11pm I wished for you, I always wish for you.    I think that's what scares me the most, I cant stop wishing for you. I close my eyes as the tears roll down my cheeks and a shiver crawls down my spine.  
She sits on the swing right outside her window.   The window where she use to sneak out of every night.   It's 1 in the morning and her thoughts lead her back.  
I can't sleep without the window open at night.   I can hear the roaring of cars in the distance.   It reminds me of whe we would listen for cars before we crossed the street.  
These images that I play in my head, never see to disappear. Like the image of you turing away, not a galance back. But you've wittness my fairytale finally come to an end.
We were supposed to bike through Central Park and ride through the trees.We were supposed to take a trip to the shore and sleep on the beach.We were supposed to plant your garden and protect it from the bees.We were supposed to cuddle all night in
If I fell, would I feel it? The impact that would shake my bones? Or would my body remain numb, unaware of the cold?   Would my heart still beat, thumping against its cage?
Love is a broken promise, signing away your life. Trying to find clarity; instead, finding strife.
I am the human embodiment of fear and trepidation. My body is a reeking cesspool of panic so I lie awake in bed like an earthworm lay on cement and       rot  
I look around this hopeless cold world and all I see is rain..A broken mirror to my heart, the pieces of pain..How soon we forget..Long years and a lot of regrets..
you build with your words , you make sky scrapers from your sentences and cathedrals with stanzas ,
I'm not your Prince Charming  I'm not your Romeo  I'm not the one you call darling but don't cry infinite sorrows   Let me show you how to love and to laugh and cry Let me help you get back up
 Can you find me for me? I can’t believe this happened that was a big shaker I can’t even find my pieces.
I taught you how to love me and instead you took the information to use it for herThat's all I was for youA source on how to become better for someone elseIm a used book that got put back on the shelfEverything I ever showed you on how to love was
Remember when you laid next to me in my bedYou remember, yeah don't you?Covers over us and bodies pressed togetherYou loved me, didn't you?Well that's what you said when we were done fucking
I stood in the spot where we'd make out in my kitchen; where my parents couldn't seeI felt the loneliness in the lack of your presence and couldn't help but think How did we get to this? I thought what we had was love I thought you wanted
He made her feel so alive She yearned for that feeling of joyOnly he gave that to herHer eyes lit up like the night sky at the very sight of himHer heart came out of her chest with every word he spoke and lyric he sangShe felt so alive with him Be
You never said thank you for the rides home You never returned the looks in the hallways The texts with the girl of the same name, I would never do that to you
Your not here anymore Makes me wonder if you did leave A troubled soul that didn't know What he had when he left   We are learning a topic About something you endured
Everyone makes mistakes.. and everyone forgives, but why'd you forgive me... I remember the way you talked about him... You were actually happy when you got to talk, but then I came into the picture...
The thunder; it roars in the night resembling my stomach, for which I haven't ate a thing in days. Staring at my food, picking around it with my fork. The wind seems to blow cold sharp shards into my skin.  
First Sight Boundaries between, Walls knocked down Skies are cleared, King finds his crown. Smiles all the same But one in particular; Remains. Butterflies in the brain
You were over Me quick and Readily pricked My weak little Heart with your Needles.  
It's days like today when everything's just a little bit harder I'm constantly pricked with little reminders of a past life The breeze on a walk with an old friend whispers our memories
I keep thinking that someone needs to pay What can i do to make that happen I know i never will do a thing because of my nature Yet the fact they never saw my true pain frustrates me to no end I wish i punched you
I want to love you America, but how can I when our greatest mistake as a nation is preaching to our youth that what is in our textbooks can never happen again   we preach intelligence 
Squeezing  My chest is ...Squeezing Calling out for you to Squeeze me Hold me close and Acknowledge my existence without making me feel kiddish Like a child with a crush on a teacher
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 told him i loved him and he didn't say it back and now he's standing in the doorway watching me pack up my bags begging me "don't leave" but why would i stay why would i waste my time
  This venom stung me so deep that all I see is a blurred vision, The random feel of a pain so strong that all I fear is getting burned. You painted the black canvas in a dessert filled with sorrow,
I'm tired I miss you You don't care So why do I either bother writing how I feel I tried with you Over and over I failed with you You didn't care You brought me so many tears
You committed a murder....... ..... It's when I died. I wasn't a soldier, and only you survived. It hurt so much! Your intentional blows! The intangible touch, that left my heart holes.
Why does it hurt so much? The words that fled your mouth into my ears still linger in my brain. And the promises you made, the hope you fed me and the lies I gobbled up, gullible child I am,
I'm sad I'm mad My music is gone For so long Headphones are dead With my soul along with it
Why do I do such hurtful things.. My mind, body & soul are just in separate places I feel I'm not where I'm suppose to be
I'm sorry. I'm sorry if I've caused you any sadness these past couple days. I'm sorry if I creeped you out. I'm sorry if I disgusted you with the idea of my love. I'm sorry if I put a bullet through your heart.
The pain is almost unbearable. I never excpected to love you, it just happened. And now here I am wishing you'd just speak to me. You flirt with everyone, but the one boy that flirts back is shunned.
As I remember my happy times, I long for them back. Me just a whisper of your past, but you are still screaming in my ear. I still laugh at our walks together, our childish conversations.
You call this a crush? I feel like shit everyday you avoid me. I feel like I deserve to die because what I've done. God has cursed me and left me to wilt in this ditch.
In an ocean of darkness, there is one light for me. And it shines brighter than even the sun above. It is so close, yet not within reach. I try to get closer, but the light fades into the distance.
I lie in bed like a corpse dreading these words,a small word that pierces your heart like a knife.Goodbye..I feel the hot tears roll down my face as the butterflies in my stomach start to tremble.  The smell of home enters my system as I put my he
You were my world. You were the sun of my solar system. The music of my life. You mattered to me more than anything. And you still do.   Did you ever think about me? Did you ever dream about us?
Was it a dream? Us? We were so happy. So childlike. So carefree. What happened? It was too short. I messed it up, didn't I? My happiest days were with you.
Do you think this is what I wanted? Do you think I follow you so I can torment you? Do you think I'm happy? Do you think I am mad at you? Do you think I hate you?   I would never be mad at you.
Why do I love you? I love you because you make gremlin faces at me. I love you because your teeth don't quite line up. I love you because you bounce all over the place.
Every time I think of our time as friends, I die inside. I feel as though I just swallowed broken glass. I want to curl up in a ball and cry forever. Everytime I see you I think of my mistakes.
This feeling is brand new, and I'm not sure if I like it. It's intensity burns brighter than anything I have ever known. It gives me hope and motivation. It also makes me feel hopeless and demotivates me.
Everyday I fight a war. I get up without the guarantee of seeing you. I go to school without you to make it bearable. I smile without you to make it real. I laugh without you to make it full.
People cannot be broken Nevertheless, there will come a time When you meet someone who will make you feel like Hundreds of pieces of pottery Scattered on the ground
Darkness cloaks her being  like shadows dancing upon the gravel.  No angel but all devil 
once again I am left with a bird for a heart - it's winter and the bird is stuck it calls for its mate it pecks at the bars   once again I am left with a bird for a heart -
My past life used to appeal to me, now it is dreary in comparison. No one I truly loved, no full happiness, no perfect peace. I could fall asleep without tears or anguish,
Do you know how much the silent treatment hurts? When you put yourself within arms reach, but you're still out of reach. Everyday, I see you, hear you, but you don't seem to see or hear me.
Around this time last year, We were sitting in your car, With my arms around your neck, And our eyes up on the stars
We blew up our bubble With hot breaths Of late night conversations Of things I wanted to confess Of things he wanted to hear
Beeps of the monitor wake me He’ll make it through wait and see He’s still not moving And now I’m shaking Crying out, holding his hand
Fatal Infatuation   As a child I was told of the significance of what we call love The sweet serendipity that it brings to your life
I found the feeling of love in a teenage boy, deep in his caramel eyes. The warmth I felt when I stared kept me warm through those cold October nights
When I was thirteen, I knew exactly who  I was going to marry. He would be tall, and strong, with black hair  and even blacker eyes. He would be my protector.
Heartbreak doesn't last It may seem like forever But soon you will shine
  "3-2-1" Happy New Year!  My ears were ringing from the sound  of cries as I fought my way through the crowd. On a dark sidewalk I stared as I could feel the time moving in the air. It was no longer 2016.  
You taught me that my body was for lease, that I was there for rent every time your "friend" kicked you out of your place, you signed our contract with rhymes cause you knew I've always had a thing for emcees, wanted to find love like Zeke and Myl
It wasn’t hard for you to sweep me off of my feet, I took only one sip of you but already felt weak in the knees, My thoughts and emotions for “us” could not be tamed,
The boy who played the Dad to my Mom in preschool. The one who looks like a Who from Horton Hears a Who, and shifts his eyes when we walk past each other on the Coca-Cola stained floor of our church.
I’ll never forget The day it all started. Driving home, I wasn’t excited to see you. I didn’t really miss you; Assuming it was nothing.   I’ll never forget The call to my best friend.
I traded my sorrows for a pretty face And a bottle I traded my sorrows for him And a cigarette to my lips My sorrows were replaced
Please don't dip your Chicken Nuggets in Ketchup Just seeing it makes me red. Nothing against your personal eating habits.  Just if you’re around me Please don't dump your Chicken Nuggets in Ketchup. 
I know better than me. I know that I should… I know that I shouldn’t  listen to it, it makes me soft, smooth.
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?
My parents always warned me about the drugs on the street Never once did they warn me about the ones with brown eyes and can say, “I love you.”
Love is just a joke.  Nothing but lies written on a note. Hearts of pink and red, thoughts of roses on the bed. Torn apart, As if that note were my heart.   A note with x's and o's
I hate that I can'tdecide what we really areand I'll never know.
I know that you don't really care,but I'm here so you should deal with it.Just because you're avoiding my eyesdoesn't mean that I'll disappear.Just because you pretend that it doesn't hurt
I don't think you understandhow hurtful I am.I can't decideif you're ignoringwhat's obviously there,or just not seeing it.
No matter how much I try,I've failed to succeed.Every word I have spoken,is constantly breaking me.Ripping at my heart,tearing at my soul. I've told myself this is better,you won't get hurt this way.
I love you I replied. I wanted his future with mine. His carefully guided wisdom. His whole-hearted embrace. Imagine a life without.
I hide my face from you  in an attempt to forget the way your hand  perfectly in mine. You promised to never let go, but instead of using my hand to hold yours,
i feel like a shell; a phrase which doesn’t suggest i feel hollow.   a shell protects whats inside, but that isn’t to say that
Mary ached to see Joe with her, in the place the place that she once was. How they had been so close, and then it seemed like he was done.
 I lost myself. I lost myself when I stopped looking people in the eyes because all mine held was pain anymore and it hurt like hell to talk about it.  I lost myself when every weekend after that horrible night those bad habits took over and I mad
I try to stay positive but lately that just means gettin’ lit. What's easier rolling one or facing my problems? I'll tell you right now, happiness is halfway through the bottle.
I look in the mirror of the year and see him behind me. January started with a ring. White, blue, me, you. Curled together and sprinkled with glittering gems. As the snow melted I took courses in depression and numbness,
I went away from all things I knew. I changed my view on life, paid attention to the little things. I learned to appreciate the small gestures made by strangers walking by.    I left
Letting you in was like letting the alcohol rinse inside the alcoholic's mouth Dangerous, toxic, and satisfying You kept hurting me, taking advantage of the love I had given I was broken and used up
Tender hearts prepared for the unknown Wishful eyes seeing what's shown Anxious arms carrying weight of life Scared souls with love so rife Jubilant days like a child among the park
In the beginning, there was Us. Sometimes I thought that my smile would blind people, It burned so brightly for you. And nothing touched me more
          All I saw was loss At loss of words and feelings          But I am still here 
I have gained nothing but pain You destroyed every part of me, Now I am scared to feel All because of you.   I was thinking about the day we met
It was bliss in the start, it was only you I gave my heart to. You thought I was a fool, Now I don't know what to do.  It was you that I turned to to keep the pain away.
an illusion a mirage  of a soul i believed could intertwine with mine. to build a star,  and quite possibly contrive a piece of magic. But alas,  i cannot see
(Do You Still Love Me?)   How lucky these sheets would have been to know you.
I started out the year very unhappy.
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
I need you to do me a favor. I promise if you do this I'll stop annoying you. Look me in the eye and tell me you don't care about me. I need to hear you say it. Why? So I can let you go. No?
Heartbreak is the heartbeat moments Smiles fading into frowns When happy turns to sad In remembrance of a memory The longing to return
Icy like mint
I looked our old messages, and suddenly it all made sense. People don’t appreciate that kind of thing unless they understand it, and the only way you can understand it is through experience.
I look back at pictures of our childhood, sweet grass in the curls of your chocolate hair, bright silver eyes that pierce the soul, pale skin, sunburnt by the constant sun of summertime,  
I never knew how much it would hurt I assumed it was an innocent emotion How can such innocence Hold something so dark June 23, 2016 The day I first saw you The day I fell in love with Rose
I never knew how much it would hurt I assumed it was an innocent emotion How can such innocence Hold something so dark June 23, 2016 The day I first saw you The day I fell in love with Rose
I used to think that the everything would be fine if you left it alone. Nothing bad would happen, everything would fix itself in the end.
A new year meant a new start. The beginning was a blast,  and when that clock struck midnight everything was in the past.   When spring came around,  things began to change.
I wish I was harsh like the denial letter from a school. I wish I was bitter like a friend scorned. I wish I could sting even just half as bad as that whiskey you constantly down. I wish I was rough
There we were smiling We spoke 24/7 You were the first thing I woke up to and the last before waking up only to talk to you again.  You were here.   Here we are now. We never talk anymore.
Like the lukewarm sun on an inclement day, It dessicates the rain that falls from these eyes, The majestic star coruscates through the turbid storm, Lighting up the darkest thoughts from my mind,
The pain started in his head, bouncing between his ears like a bullet richocheting through a tunnel. Soon enough the pain slithered down his throat and into his lungs, clinging and growing like a fungus.
 Love Euphoric, Naive Beaming, Dreaming, Falling Team, People, Person, Withdrawal Yelling, Crying, Annulling Hysterical, Unfeeling
A car in the pouring rain It goes under a bridge Quiet Peaceful It comes out from under And everything hits harder again You were my bridge  
I am so torn My body Being pulled in two directions By my mind And heart Which do I choose? My choice doesn’t matter Both sides will keep pulling anyway Equal in their force
The most powerful tears Are those that slip out Though the tiniest cracks In one’s happy facade And slide over one’s soul Burning Acidic Poisonous They leave scars
he was so bright God, he was bright he made my skin burn when he touched it he made my heart race,  air so thick I couldn't get a breath like the hottest day of mid-July. yes, he was bright
Your name tastes sour now when I say it, And yes I fell in love, I have no shame to admit, I loved the things you said to me, you always called me amazing,
Love songs and empty words curled Around ideas of what love Should be, like horns that ram the unsuspecting, Shaking and shattering bones And all expectation of the
although i have not kept count of the amount of people who have walked out of my life, like a train leaving the station—fast, abrupt, all-at-once; i have kept count of the words that follow.  
I remember the taste of your lips, sweet,  and soft, reminding me of fluffy clouds, I didn't want to wash the taste of you from my mouth, I remember your arms wrapped around my waist,
You were sitting by a hotel pool, holding what looked like a margarita in your left hand and a lack of energy in your right. Your eyes were the second organs I lashed my gaze upon, your declinations being the first.
I hate the way I fell for you... slowly, then all at once, like you pulled me down into a deep trap and told me I could never leave unless you let me. Let me go... I can't be here anymore.
They say to us, "This generation knows nothing, they're only children, what do they know?" But they don't know the battles we've fought, the fear we faced, the weights on our shoulders.
The way you look into my eyes shows your hunger. You don’t want me. You want my body. When I see you my brain activates fight or flight.
When eyeliner smudges into sadistic mosaics of sorrow swept across the peaks of my temples, And mascara stains virgin white sclera black, That which peers back at me with sunken in eyes, Things of which sting:
 The breaking of the heart is the most painful when you think you've found the one, then they just walk our or your life like you were never nothing. The heart breaks when you lose someone you loved with your whole heart.
I know you exist. Please, drop this pretense. I feel my heart beat, Out from beneath my feet. I jump from my skin, You would be such a sweet, Sin. You held me To your chest.
You took me out on adventures all the time, knowing i had anxiety, saying it was fine. You didn't let my fears take over- every event was another step closer to feeling free from the anxiousness that was attached to me.
Please fall in love with Her Love the glints of gold in Her eyes and how Her hair brushes across Her face Love what makes Her smile and laugh Learn Her quirks, Her dears, Her hopes, Her dreams  Hold Her close
He walks with a step more than man Bowing beneath the doorway of her room And when he speaks it replaces the air Like cigar smoke He urges her to sit as he lights the fireplace Though she is already hot  He stalks to her and his fingertips are rou
It’s always been terrifying to me… What could possibly lie underneath the serene rapids of the Gulf of Napoli Normally a peaceful town my family originated from.  
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 am sorry, But you cannot look through these lens again My friend, I have seen it fall to the bitter ground The darkest tar, The sound still echoes within the carved halls of my heart.
Yes I am broken and bruised, Yes willingly, I love the abuse, Yes the nights are long There’s not enough distractions in the day, Yes the reasons to leave Outweigh the reasons to stay,
  Are you Still here I am Still here Waiting For you Still pure
I can only remember two times my heart skipped a beat from loving someone.
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.
Today I saw you’re the books your favorite author wrote. I still have all those books you gave me sitting in a pile under a small blue table that you helped me build one day when my parents weren’t home.
If you see someone smile and it makes your breath stop, makes your brain forget what language to speak, run as fast as you can, because they’re sure to break your heart
A constant battle that never ends. It was so much easier being friends, bhtvthe love we had was hard to deny. Road blocks and mountain we couldn't defeat. I never understood why you didn't fight for me.
    I've got ice in my veins Fire in my heart My head begging for a reason   Fuck these thoughts The childish weakness breeding doubt like rabbits  
TEARS OF AN ADOLESCENT She was right there seated on the front roll with a broken heart in her hands dressed in her usual black lace this time with a sad face I could see the pain deep inside her soul
Love and Lies   The feeling in my chest, Is one I’ve felt before. All so easy to notice,
I'm sick I'm out of my head  
you always said the wrong thing at the wrong time  you told me it was because you didnt have a filter but i think it was because you didnt care i realized that trying to forget everything you said works
  Dear Brown Boy  Why are you so scared to let me in? Allow my honey kissed lips to graze upon your coco butter skin And effortlessly our two chocolate bodies will melt together
His eyes are grey like the sky. His smile as white as pearl. His mind, a mystery. He is my opposite. Cool. Calm. Collected. and crazy. I cannot love him. I want to but I cannot.
Just because someone is hurt once Does not mean they cannot Love anyone or anything again.   I picked up my first instrument When I was in the fourth grade. It was bigger than I was
I miss you. I never wanted to admit that, But I really miss you. You never told me the password for the PS4 And your Sly Cooper icon is Iconic. Heh, get it?
Do not assume I am in love with you. Do not think that my hands clenching the front of your shirt in tight fists, are clenched tight with the desire to pull you close. My hands are holding you because you are here.
freckles are the snowflakes of summer, the reason i like this season best, the reason i love you most. sunny days and a sprinkler
i am tired of being tethered to you, of being responsible for feelings that are not my own, results of your whims.  
it is different and it is not the same, because when music happens with you, the notes create stair steps up to places in the sky i have never been before.
  breathe out. i need a language with more
 synonyms for love
 that do not strike my ears like a slap or a secondhand 
i try to forget you. i try to remember you. but i cannot. i have written you letters, i have sung you songs, i have penned a thousand poems,
they told me to rise
 with dawn, but i fade
 with every daybreak. maybe some are meant to live in darkness because
 shooting stars can only
i was not looking for love
 in all the right or wrong places— 
i was not looking at all.
 i could teach lifetimes on happily-ever-alone.

she examines the tallies on her arm—   a red one for each time she’s loved and lost.   one single black mark  
Pull me close.        Don't talk.  Listen to it,            It beats,  Growing stronger,            My heart.  Pumping blood,          Don't let me run.    Make me fight for you. 
So, i heard your name yet again, today. Yep. Still got that sour taste and rotten smell that lingers well after you're gone. Oh, fuck you. Wait. That's all you ever wanted. I’m suppose to forgive you.
In eighth grade, we had Science class together. You had sat in the row behind me until the seats were switched and we became partners. Do you know what I would give to be partners with you again?
I wish I kissed The hand that listened Emotions had overflowed beautifully Time uncovered my voice- Promise Song, I called it. Passion swept over me, and Then passion died
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
You were my life and, my light. Then came that cold, dark night Now the only time i see your face is in the pictures of this old place Without you, i dont know what to do Why did this happen to you?
Just when I think i've had enough you pull me right back in, Oh, how your fingers on my skin are almost as sweet as your wicked kiss. Honey, why do you stay with her when you dream of me? No more, shall i wait for thee.
You're like my own personal drug, Addicive and intoxicating, You cast a spell on me, And I can never break free.   It's dangerous, And I know I should run,
Love is all a lie but just to me. Pain is the last thing that makes me cry. It's the only thing that makes me truly see. Everyone I've loved.....they can go die in a hole,
A key A lock A heart in a cage Escape full of love & promises Return broken & tarnished Back in the cage Locked away Key thrown to the side Never escaping again.
no pain is felt when all is painaching only lasts so longand then it’s replaced by a hole you cannot seea hole you cannot feel
You are the best thing to ever  happen to me...   but I just want to tell you  all my secrets and keep you in all my journals...  
This is our growing point, where we actually start our lives. We plan out our futures as if we're reading them out of a story book:
I used to tell myself I hated you. I would whisper it under my beath when you walked by and scream it until my lungs ached in the rain. I would write it on my skin and on paper until your name stained everything precious to me.
I’ve been lonely lately, in a steady state of decay, feeling like I’m not really living, just killing time.   My body is shipwrecked, too much water in my lungs, too many cracks
If I may be honest, I don't feel much  anymore. There are things, far and few between that cause a twinge in my heart. A wilted flower, a father's embrace, a lover's prayer,
It's the color of fire as it dances in the wind, alone. It's the hue of her lips as she leaves a trail on his neck, like a sentence that will never be finished. It's the color that rushes to your fingertips
Let's play a game, shall we? Let me vester into your mind,  Hear your every thought. Now tell me, what scares you? I'm pretty aware that it scares many others too.  Deep into your mind I wonder, 
And as I look back at who I used to be And what we used to have I realize that we will never be the same. I am a shattered human and you are an unbothered god. "I love you", I whsiper
***This was written during a dark part of my life and don't worry I am totally fine now and these thoughts are no longer a part of my mind***
This boy is one for the history books  
I hope you're happy.. But I also hope you miss me 
Salt is an accessory, not to be consumed aloneBut, salt is bitterShrewd white crystals that should be used in moderationBut I ate too muchClumps grasp at the walls of my throat
  I know what it’s like to fall in love and this is not it i used to have foggy glassesand titchy skin that wrinkled in all the right spotsand a burdensome nose and a wacky smile cocked to the side with thin lips
she will indeed -but she has not yet- be all you need -for you’ve not met- in times of crisis -she wasn’t here- she’s the nicest -don’t blame her dear- she sticks around
    You're one so heartbreakingly beautiful her hands have yet to stop aching for the feeling she once knew. § it's been months.
She told me to set you ablaze. Not in the way you did my heart, no.Nothing near as deadly. She told me to just kill you. So I did.
I like the smell of cigarettes, gasoline, and your cologne. I like the sight of green hills, library shelves, and your laughter filled eyes.
In that moment, I knew you understood me. In that moment, I knew you knew my pain. In that moment, I knew you saw how much I loved you... Because that's how much you were loving someone else.
The shadow of you lingersAround me.It mimics the feel of Your touch,Your warmth,Your lips. I teases me with memories that are better as memories. 
You’re not a poet And for that I’m glad But still your words drip like honey Your lie sings like a promise And like a musician
I have no outlet You are a tyrant I feel like dying Does it matter than I'm crying You do not love me You always retreat I want to escape I badly want to get away Why do I love you
today you've stopped looking through me  finally deciding to see me  we'll journey through the cycle  meet. converse. become friends. best friends.
Lately all I've wanted to do is to be able to rewind timeAnd go back to when I could sleep in your warm embrace.If the ultimatum were that everything played out the same
As words crawl up and out of my throat My fingers desperate to find the right note Heart as heavy as lead but fragile as glass Watching the ceiling fan, waiting for it to pass The nausea the fatigue
It was like a candle being blown out: you leaving. My world has been dark before (it always has), but At least I had a little flame to give me hope back then.
You promised me Wonderful, glorious things.   You promised me A white house,  With not-blue shutters,  A pond out front,  And horses in the back   You promised me 
If you ask me of love  I will tell you that it is enigmatic That you will feel it in the trenches of your soul And in the most lofty places of your mind
Cold crisp air slicing my lungs with every breath Socks wet from the soggy ground, Feet aching, becoming numb Everything shivers with cold January hurts  
For all the pain and the nights that I cried For all the tears For the fights For all the times that you used me Because you played with my heart Why don't you f**k you?
If we had world enough, and time, we'd ditch this town and get lost in this beautifully dangerous realm. The beaches and woods do not overwhelm, and enters the chance to explore.
She was my friend. Blonde, green-eyed, Fair skinned and delicate. She was perfect in more ways then one. And I fell for her.   She was a flower, Beautiful and dainty.
As each day goes by there is not a hour I am not thinking about you I can't even type this poem without tears forming in my eyes Why did you have to do me the like that?
Last night I had the misfortune of seeing you in my dreams you looked at me with your sad eyes that gleamed then the clouds began to cry
I will join you The shackles on my wrists Are made of gold And my eyes are glass As you drag a razor across your wrists
1. When I first saw you, I didn't set my eyes on yours but instead observed your saunter from behind as you made your way into the crowd of people. I should have known something was up with you, I mean who wears brown leather jackets anymore. 
Part One:I am a destroyerDestroy herDestroy himDestroy them Destroyer of worlds of multifarious dimensions.
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
I love you terribly so. My biggest fear would be seeing you go.
You really think I care that you have messed up? I know about your reputation, I know about your past. And really, that doesn't change anything,  Because you are still you. And for some reason,
everything i dois always done better.and i understand--why you'd rather choose her. 
I remember last winter, You said it'd be alright. I looked in your eyes for warmer weather, But then the fire turned to ice.   What we once had, it was burning, But now, the flame has gone away.
I try to find you in everyone. certain laughs, places, walks, store fronts, forgotten jokes, left over french fries, dusty books, but they’re only parts of you.
I was ten years old the first time I ever visited Washington. I loved it. Two years later, I met a boy who called it home. I loved him. My face was the Washington sky.
I first started writing poetry when I first started getting confused in our society, you have to use money: fine all things must die: alright you are unhappy more often than most people: ok
Saying too much is regretful.Saying too little is poignant. But what is it when you feelyou've  done both at the same time?There are words left on my tongue,shards of sentences I'll never utter
Stop acting like he abused you. You're the one who calls him worthless every single day. Quit acting like you're all he has. We all know his friends and family love him very much.
Since you left I have changed. I feel like crying over every little thing, I swallow tears when I drop a book I haven’t said much to my friends lately
I thought about you then I wanted to fight for you I didn't want it to end I thought about you then I wondered how you were doing, I meant to call, to tell you that I missed you
The shades of black and white appealed to me Like a thief finding comfort in the shadows The feeling of ink in my hands felt like home Like the familiar arms of a lover  
I remember you as something remarkable A silver lining in the string of grey.Yet you tugged the endings of my nerves until it broke.And my body paid dearly for
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,
There is nothing worse than betrayal, because it signals the end of a friendship. You claim I betrayed you, but I did no such thing. After all, I'm not the backstabber. I'm not the trash talker. I'm not the cheater.
I wanted himHe wanted herFeelings are still deep within my heartAs I lay in bed thinkingThinking about our conversationsThinking about how in love I amThinking about the betrayal
I lost myself. Why? Why do you do this to me? Constantly blinding my eyes, clouding my mentality, forcing my heart to beat faster. Why? Why do you allow this to happen?
A gun went off people were hurt or worse- killed A gun went off all because the shooter didn't like who they loved.   My heart goes out to all those who've suffered
there is a face behind my face-- there is a frown  behind my smile--   there is a life beyond this hell-- there is a place that does not wait--   the ribs that stick
Darkness envelops me from that speck of light that I aimed to reach for Parents didn't believe in my depression and marked it off as "wants for attention"
I see youI see your strength and your charm.And that smile that makes daylight jealous.I see the outlet of your frustrations in the valleys of your triceps.I've memorized the divots in your lips as they approach mine.I hope this is how I will reme
Yes has served me the great fall Of the last one that gave me life With my sadness fall the rose Cutting my wings Je t'adore I adored you With the stupidity of your wings You`re my love of pacotille
She dressed in all black, with the most colourful mind. Questioning the universe about how beauty is defined. Is it not strange that autumn is so beautiful, yet everything is dying?
sun rising, yeast baking in the soiled sheets. froth of your love like latte lattice stuck to the brim of my tongue. bric-a-brac baby, midas touch, gold sheen of betrayal in morning love. 
today i saw the trees bloom. i saw their buds unfurl, miniature fingerlings reaching into the world, and i-i forgot about how you made me feel. i won’t let you off that easy, no, 
leave me be let me see for myself the cruelty  i know you supposedly didn't mean to hurt me so why am i sitting here with my heart bleeding and these tears streaming let down and left down i lay praying
It’s funny, when asked by most, one would assume the hardest part of heartbreak is blame: the reason, who to blame, and what it entitles. For me, it was the when.
A threadbare silence wraps itself Around my hearing, Stopping the sounds that Have submerged my skin and It replaces the noises with My own hammering thoughts   Though I beg for 
Dove dark chocolate,  One of the purest enjoyments in life   Foil bends and crinkles as I relish the moment in which  I open the clearanced Valentine Which was somehow abandoned
I realised, in light of          the way you came and went, When breaking up with someone you love,           the last thing you want is consent.
Every girl that I have dated has a little bit of you in her.
My feelings for you have not changed since day one When we first met in 6th grade I knew that what I felt was real Even after we went our separate ways My feelings for you will never sway
The sky exposes my melancholy and distress, I won't be the girl next to you in a white dress. Why did you ruin our dreams? Perhaps it was a nighmare in reality and woke you up in screams.  
Time is valuable  It is not malleable I cannot change it  But use it like money, I can only spend it   I took the time to discover And the rumors I had to uncover
Black pain of love is what I already have Is pain green Yellow Purple Blue Golden Gray White were my destiny when I loved you Pain Violet Orange Dark-Blue So red the blood of the disintegration of my soul
Loving thoughtlessly  
One less inquiry   
Beatings, bruising, cuts and scars Smiles to hide the pain Wishing on a shooting star That I could fly away   Heartbreak, tears, screams and cries Hidden day by day Covered up with laughter
As my unattainable love sat handsome in my head,  I dreamt of the could haves, and poetry, I read. The classics inspired me -- like Browning and Donne, Eliot and Plath and Shakespeare and Young. 
As I gaze into his eyes I can tell the difference between your warmth and his. I compare his love and yours And that’s when I realized
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
Hand me a pair of scissors I’ll cut the steel ropes That led straight to your heart At least I’ll try If only I could get closer to you That end of the rope is the thinnest
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.
I wish there was some beautiful poetic way of explaining how i feel. I wish i could paint my words into a picture. But i cannot. Because i do not know how to make the feeling of absolute worthlessness,
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
i called you babe last night in a dream you stuttered but said love what do you need? and made me your heart and i felt whole again by being just yours every hair on end you took my hand
    To the boy who loves her next,   Please know that she’s really fragile.  She’s far too sensitive,  but that gives you a reason to hold her  and tell her everything is gonna be okay  
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,
so many emotions my body can't contain  continuously being suffocated like an un-oxygenated flame if someone would put me out how grateful i would be for my emotions--never ending--are shifting like the trees
People say, “No pain. No Game.” That somehow we must Commit pain for the game. Why must feel The grief, the ache, the discomfort Be the counterpart to The match, the sport, the struggle
After having my heart completely cut in half My life was woe I didn't know What my purpose in life Was anymore I couldn't see what there Was to look forward to I was a robot just walking
As I was staring up at the skies the wind blew you right through my mind I looked at the gaps between my fingers and realized your hands would fit perfectly into mine
It's very strange, The way some things change As it all goes by so fast and our poor hearts hardly ever last. You were a part of my happiness
I've got the scars on my heart to prove my pain After this I will never be the same You say I only have me to blame But you, the liar, should feel ashamed I've got scars on my heart to to show why I cry
5:35 am Here I am Searching  I know not what I'm looking for But I know I need to find something 6:17 am Here I am  Took one notification  To know what I'd hoped I'd find
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.
all i need is you, my dear. i need to feel the waves of your love. seeing you was like going to the beach, though i always said i wouldn't go in the water, i always did, and when i did, i'd never leave.
Painful yet joyous, Love can cause smiles and tears. It's what we live for.   Can't live without love? Love gifts you to feel alive; while risking heartbreaks.
you,  with your dark brown hair and your green eyes made me feel  like i was the only girl in the world and you the only boy and yet why, oh why
baby, i drank a little something but i still can't get you out of my mind i drank a little something, just a little bit of wine. i drank a little something,  but i still can't find the right frame of mind.
i am not a hotel. don’t pack your bags only to stay a week or twodon’t come to me only when you need somewhere to get away from everythingi am not a hotel.i am a home.let me be your home.
I drink it to rememberthe night that we first met,for the many nights there after,for the nights you'll soon forget. Remembrance of there was,but more importantly what might have been,will never stopped these fantasiesfrom running in my head  You
Tell her that you can't promise that you'll remember her favorite color- but that you'll remember the experiences you've had together   tell her that you will always remember  the butterflies you got whenevr she was around
They ask me what I could never do without and I am tempted to say a name or a place But I realize now what I could not survive without
I wish this were reality that love is kindness, If you knew that I feel the soul fly that your face and your mouth make me fall in love more and more. Distances were then that banned me to love you,
I reminisce of weightlessness:  peering down into 10, 20 feet of air. My delicate days,  I recall, as a haze  full of branches: a careful cloud  of offshoots  that, long as I could, 
Hello my love every day I'm losing the essence of your love, in me I saved the secrets of your love and of yesterday. Why did you leave? why did you leave me here, my heart and my mind are coldly petrified,
It has always struck me as odd, the idea that “loving you” and “losing you” are only one letter apart. This small difference is proved
To say I depended on you would be an understatement. I was addicted to the way we were. To say you were my everything would be an understatement.
I don’t live in the light I am consumed by darkness My heart is shattered My mind is fragmented What more can I do?   I can’t save myself The only person who stood with me Has left…
“I should've smashed it… I should've smashed it…” A savage smile graced her face in insane glee Pacing back and forth Heart racing Thud-dump...thud-dump... Trickles of crazed laughter dripped from her lips
I knew I had it bad, when they asked what I would need if I was stranded on a island, and the first thing I thought of, was your blue eyes instead of water. Isn't that sad?  
Cold as the glaciers that gather around the attic waters into the eyes of a girl long gone it hurts on the inside worse than anything Do you get that feeling? staring at the night sky
I draw my smile on with ease, with lipstick as red as your cheeks, when you read the words “I like you more than I’d care to admit”  
I still think about you every day I see you in the halls your hair is a fiery red now perhaps you've moved on and are flaunting your tenacity you wore converse today so did i
And this is just another poem, One of many, About you. Your elusive ways and how you make me wonder How you can hide your emotions So well. Or not have any left at all.
We were never together and you broke my fucking heart. Our lips never touched But I can still feel them hovering near mine. Our relationship was weird, but nothing we couldn’t handle.
Love, What is this thing we call love? Does it even exist? Some say it does, Others will say it doesn't! Do we really have to go through such horrible heartbreaks to find true love? Do we have to make ourselves feel so horrible to find that one pe
We’ve been going at it for so long Why do we keep doing this? It starting to hurt to see you I’m feeling unwanted Why do you do this?
Daddy what's wrong? Why aren't you strong? What's going on?   Daddy I'm crying. Please don't be dying. Just keep on trying   Daddy don't be afraid  We'll all come and stay,
Every few years you show up in my life Whether it be in person or in a distant memory When I hear someone mention your name I am transported to the old, abandoned beach
I closed my eyes and I saw you lying next to me You were so close that I could reach my hand over and caress your sleeping face The soft breathing held a steady pace as you dreamed
Wet cheeks, Lonley night, A heart filled with pain A mind on the verge of going insane A smile with sore cheeks A soul that feels so weak Eyes that hold back tears Lips that lie due to fear
"Why do you love me?" I ask.You reply with many reasons,some of which being how  When I talk about my favorite book,I always obsess over the characters and my eyes take on a whole new formas big as dinner platesand they sparkle like the fourth of
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.
you left me bleeding you left me crying you left me screaming  out for you save me  save me  you left me here you left me alone i learned to breathe with you now my hearts stone
Perhaps she was too good to be real Left to tempt But never to materialize. All good things are temporary, All but the stars. Even when the moon disappears Those twinkling orbs glow on,
It is not the ocean I see in her eyes, But the radiant Moon, The contellations that define our galaxy, And the Sun we endlessly revolve around. She is infinite, Lost in herself as I long to be.
He ripped out her heart  And left her lying on the sidewalk A single tear rolled out her eye and slowly swam down cheek She didn't know why She didn't feel her emotions  being torn apart  
Dear First Love,     I was so scared of messing everything up that I ruined it all anyway.   You were so good to me, but I didn’t treat you the same, and I missed my chance.
            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.
Its been 10 years without,  I don't want to be without, All the things I've done, Started high school without But I know you see me, All the things I've done,  With me the whole time,
Sometimes I feel like, We are on the same page.. Sometimes I'm not so sure, I try to give rather than take... It's hard... But will get used to it!!   Wishing for the feelings to be reciproced,
I found his wicked smile so alluring Black and blue dreaming  Victim of pure deceit But your love's pristine Divine empowering   I missed you Your touch and embrace
She was a strangerI admired her from afarThe most beautiful person I'd ever seenBut too afraid to say a word-She was a new friendAn optimistic person tooWho brought sunshine to my life
Somewhere down the road we took a wrong turnWe became curious of our Cheshire cat smilesand we fell down the rabbit holeWe got lost in each other's world of fantasy and illusions
I've got real boy problems and I can't stand it Try to keep everyone so I demand it No one ever stays so I stay angry The best way to attract the same thing   Those who turn up as new are the old faces
Yeah bitch screw you too... I hate the word love straight up So to the bitch who ripped my heart out wassup Tell me how’d it feel with the other guy?
You promised you wouldn’t leave me Counting down the days till we met in real life 27th came and all we had were hours left 7 hours felt like months
she looked at him with eyes  so suprised that his being could hold her whole world to feel his skin against hers in fear she'd ruin the anatomy of the stars
I'm sorry I'm sorry that I have ever cursed at you  I'm sorry that I have made you cry  I'm sorry for every black eye you gave me  I'm sorry for every time I said "Please, Stop, No." 
A little girl with a neatly tied bonnet eagerly gathers the strawberries. She rejoices the growing collection in her pail.   Except the little girl is a young woman now.
She was like vanilla and chocolate swirl, she was the best of both worlds. Beautiful and smart, did her part and played it smart.
Lungs collapsed like buildings in the aftermath of an earthquake A ripple spreading through bones and veins The pulsations of a heart reduced to a stutter A mere flutter And things are falling And crashing
If tears are comparable to the sky raining And supposedly the rainbow comes after the storm What happens with a sadness not waning?  Does such beauty still appear to a heart so torn?  
The light in your eyes when you talked about her could light up the whole world for a million and one years
i am in love with the memories of being in love with good morning texts and good night lullabies
Here you are A hole in my heart Waiting for the gum To fill up inside   Friendly fire In the game of hearts
If happiness had a face It would be yours If love had a face It would be the way I look at you   If fate were real Would we be together? If the stars aligned Would they pair us?  
It's sad when the perso you care about most is the same person who rips out your heart rips it out and just....just...breaks it... she fooled me into believing believing she actually cared
I’m the girl with the Ink stained hands from So much writing But you wouldn’t notice because You’re so far away and you Only know what I tell you and You’re oblivious to everything else
Sitting in the comfort of her chair And listening to the sounds of the breeze There is no disparity She can now see things with clarity You have left her all alone She is sadly dazed and confused
You don't cross my mind. You live in it. You occupy my every waking thought and leave room for nothing else. You tiptoe upon the edges of my dreams and walk just out of reach of my eyesight.
Girl, there is no reason For you to be there Haven't you had enough of his abuse Just remove yourself from bad air The longer you stay there Darkness is what you will continue to find
we'd go out in the city after one of your shows makeout in the parking lot of some drug store   you'll write a song about it  and my eyes and your drugs and how it makes you feel alive
Remember that Friday night when we drove my little sister’s silver Impala to Little Clear Lake on winding gravel roads
My skin, the cover of my soul’s pages, is soft leather binding, knitted together  by the Expert Craftsman, protecting secrets from            
Girl, it really is sad That he left you standing in the cold He often treated you as if you were nothing He sadly did not realize that you have a heart of gold It is a shame That he treated you that way
Girl, look at the way at how you are being treated But, you stay by his side You just let yourself go As if you do not have any pride You do everything for him But yet, there is zero appreciation
Instead ofbeing the onewho hurts,Becomes the onegetting hurt. Embrace, this is me.No.
Consider her gone Because, she cannot trust you She gave you everything But, you never appreciated anything Her heart was there She was always sincere Walking away from you
I've never liked my bed With you in it it is warm and comforting to feel your skin on mine My bed makes your absence felt I'm colder I am less sure of what space my body should claim
Do not play with a girl's heart or even worse her heartstrings because if you are not careful you may mistake her heartstrings as the most beautiful of instruments and make music resounding in the acoustics of her soul
Tell me you hate me Or Tell me you love me Either way, I can't stand the truth
I use to love dreaming about you Because it was the one moment I could see you again So vividly I could feel the butterflys, so realistically your embrace would engulf me Dreams about our forever, how we could be
Although brown eyes are darker than blue eyesI had never found such madness beforeIn those with more pigment than your own skiesIt was not something that I could ignore  
A while ago, my heart broke. It didn’t disappear, it just broke. Now that I look back, I realize that it probably could have been fixed. Back then. 
Opposites attract. For some people that’s a beautiful twist, the yin to their yang. But what happens when you’re a person who feels too much? All the emotion, intense and passionate.
I fell in love in three days. In three days, I felt emotion radiating from your eyes as you gazed down into my own, softly cradling the edges of my heart as I foolishly let my guard down.     
A tinted red rose grazes my cheeks when I think of the time that you licked your lips after kissing me when I asked you why, you said you could still taste me. It was delicately beautiful and disturbing all at the same time,
You always told me I reminded you of red roses And suddenly I’m nine years old Dirtying my favorite white dress in a garden I’d sneak out to Picking petals off of sunflowers
  Pull heartstrings while you pull Hamstrings, Make me feel your presence in it's entirety.   Lungs aren't full enough for you to linger this long, but I don't care if you don't, and
  I am every bit as pathetic as the paper in my mouth.   The paper that will very soon become a topic of discussion among my friends;      Wondering why my hands now smell like anxiety,
He said he wanted a kiss, so I gave him my love. He said he wanted that, so I gave him this He said he would never ever leave, yet I'm all alone. Because he always wanted and I gave more.
If you're happy then i have to be, Because I left your side to see you be. If you like it then i love it, Because i walked away so you could show it. If you're fine then i'm well,
They say Fire is a deadly thing because it can burn you they say knives are dangerous because they can cut you they say drugs are bad because they screw with your head
  We passed the field by my house, Where you used to say sorry; Words never held meaning for you Without smoke kissing lips.   I never should have. I waited too long didn't I honey?
There was a boy that I loved. The way he looked at me made all of my problems disappear. The way his lips felt against mine, made time stop around us.
    RIP to all of the people that I killed 
some say that hell is an eternal looping of your most awful memory. I do not believe that hell is a place. Hell is my mind. My mind replays the scene over and over, the same outcome each time.
Where is it? I've missplaced it once again. I'm looking for the threads, and the needles and the numbness. Oh... Nevermind about the numbness. The trails are getting foggy, I'm lost.
(written 1/25/2015) there’s always coffee in my veins and music in my ears because i can't stand the thought of not having you and
Incantation Red By: Ashlyn Narvaez   Let the anger leave my body Cast a spell upon the words Let the trauma lift above me Create a haunting with its curse  
so sweet so damn sweet all loving cuddle craving and then romance and those hot times you made be feel good about myself but I don't think you feel good about yourself  
I am enticed with the majestic fluidity of your fingertips, tugging at my strings so that my skirt twirls and billows around me in a mannerism that only romance could suggest. And the smell of your cologne entices me
the love song hangs unspoken, there for you to steal from my lips as you stole my heart. and now there’s nothing that I would not do: I’d barter, kill, and for your love I’d starve.
Enticed by her lustful allure The Casanova had to stare His next conquest, he was so sure She’d concur to a night’s affair She said “You’re broken. I’ve no cure. No magic treatment down below.”
Once upon a time babe I was color blinded Lost what mattered the most to me But perhaps with you I'll find it   Lost myself in your eyes Maybe one..two..three..or four times
His kiss was of goldStaining her lips with the markOf innocence lost. His fingertips leftGilded prints, painted on herLovely face with care. Polished AdonisThough he was, the sun cannotShine on forever.
Why do you push me away When all I want to do is help? Please let me help take care of you, Since you cannot yourself. You used to be so kind to me, Now you won't let me in. I can't win.
Think of you Puts me at risk An avalanche just waiting Waiting to happen   Let me think Of stealing a kiss Something innocent, Saying goodnight Maybe a bit more  
I love the way you lied to me With every word spoken you blinded me And at that moment I believed That hope was finally there to comfort me I thought that I would feel so free
They are all carbon copies Were my polariod kisses too permanent for you? Too much of a constant reminder That I helped you grow from darkness That you cannot delete  Memories of chest on breast because
I press my fingers against a blank screen, once an image of your face now dissolving in my memory tears shatter as it hits the floor. You wrote your name on my palms 
Angel My Angel, Stop flying, Stop searching, Stop remembering. What you're flying for, Isn't worth it. What you're searching for, Isn't there. What you're remembering,
It's giving wholeheartedly and not receiving You pour into someone else and they don't pour back into you Leaving you empty With a bottomless void to fill The empty void hurts Such major change so quickly
Would you walk with me in the evening sun? Through the hardwoods as they give way to the fall. Lean into me under this canopy of color. I can feel your heartbeat, it races as we press tightly together.
Rain on me, why don't you world Break my heart and give me peril Falling rain, like teardrops from my eyes Soak me in tragedy and pain Take it back, you can't 
As I walked out one damp night, reflecting neon lights, breathing in the heavy smoke, and breathing out my life.   Cracking earth beneath my feet,
When you look at someone you care for, you do not see their imperfections; you do not see their mistakes all you can see is the glorious light that they cast on you,
The air is stiff, as if the wind is holding its breath,  and there is a coolness to the air, soothing, calming, peaceful. The grass is soft from where I'm sitting, as if inviting me to stay and enjoy the moment.
You were the ray of sun that shone through my window with the early light of dawn and I merely the speck of dust drifting by caught in your luminescence Illuminated by your glow, feebly dancing to catch your attention
First Date He gave me his hand. He gave me a ride home. He gave me a kiss.   Valentine's Day He gave me chocolates. He gave me roses. He gave me a teddy bear.   Birthday
We burnt out. Our flourishing romance withered away  leaving us both as ashes of the people we once were.  Without our vessels, we touch. Our ashes attempt to replicate our bodies,
It was you But it was I It was us together we were unstoppable Black and white Then life It was just a dream Blue and clear Reject and hurt I cried a river For it was a dream
For every white car I see the memories come flooding back
I am laying in the same bed, my head on the same pillows that caught my tears when I was fifteen
You were my second chance or so I thought
I want you to think of me in black and white
             He called me a hopeless romantic. He said that I was naïve for wanting someone to love me like the sun loves the moon, And he turned up his nose when I said that I wanted kisses like the stars because they are
SeptemberOne year ago I looked at you and sa
Why do I avoid you?   Is it because I hurt still, because that old scars never heal?   No, it's not that.   Is it because you killed me?  
There once was a woman full of life and love. She still exists somewhere high above. During her trek through life itself, she fell ill; for a cure, doctors did delve.
He knew he had lost her when she quit returning his messages when she quit striving to protect him when she stopped sneaking smiles at him when she stopped stealng glances at him in the halls
Give me an inch I will take a mile   While your soul in my tether We shall dance, the lover's dance   My soul shall sparkle and daze For you gave me a inch
Tear my heart Rip my soul   A knife kinder No greater judges   Half truths and lies they part my soul    Distribute such abroad
Grieves Grieves the soul Grieves the heart Tarry not fool Tarry not heart Grieves Grieves each thought Grieves the mind Tarry my soul
When a heart breaks, the guy is blamed.  When the guy breaks, the side chick is blamed.  When the side chick is blamed, the girl is seen as not good enough. 
Erik, I understand In dark slain Erik, I feel your pain Hold my broken soul Only you can know Erik, pass this life In darkness, I love you Ugly Erik, poor Erik
And now you're gone, Just like a petal torn off a flower after a gust of strong wind. The wind of life carried you away while you were still sweet.. Goodbye. Your aroma still lingers, lavender.
If tears are only saltwater streaks, then my heart must be as wide and deep as the ocean and just as rough and salty.  The waves are crashing  against me, but I only feel numb now.  
I shouldn't have listened to what everyone was saying. I shouldn't have doubted what I didn't have in writing. I knew deep down that they were wrong,
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
