Void and uninterested  Disgusted and enraged  i wish not to soothe your pain  to be used  for your selfish gain securing your name as you break me down again  
                                                        No loyalty No royalty No unconditional love No clean white dove Life is full of shocks, locks
by Debi Lyn 10/25/21   Twice now you've called me sweetheart. I've no idea why. I'm not your sweetheart; you don't love me – that just makes me cry.
I'll save you the trouble its already broken  no need for sweet nothings just leave them unspoken no fantasy romance theyre so over rated and dont ask for my soul its already traded
One day the truth will come out One day they'll know who you are One day you won't be able to hide anymore One day the curtains will move and the spotlight will shine directly at your face
Why is it people idolize famous people like they are gods? What is this fascination we have as beings we tend to be ignorant in the ways of how people really are?

  I said 'No' that evening. I told you not to do that. Not to touch my breasts. But you didn't listen that night, did you? You asked me to 'calm down'. You told me everyone did it anyway,
Turns out you never loved me After all this time So I guess it's back to being lonely That's okay... I don't mind
I put on my best brave face As I try to hide That I am breaking inside   People wouldn’t understand What I’m going through Will I ever not feel blue?   Appearing to be strong
  She has a smile even the stars can’t outshine But if you look in her eyes, she’s breaking inside She walk around with confidence, her chin always up
“Just A Game” By SnøwySøul  11/6/19   Is it alright if I ask
Fake or True ... ??? Which One Are You ... ? Are You Simply A FAKE ... Who's Just On The Make ... ? Or ... Are You EVEN WORSE ... ? A Snake On The Make ... !?!
Everyday I wake up reluctant to get out of bed Discouraged by the thought that today will hold nothing but more pain and heartache I close my eyes against the familiar pangs of anxiety
Snakes are all around me. And, it becomes harder to know who to trust. I want a friend, but are you just using me? You say you'll change for me and you are.
I look in the mirror Reflecting back I don't like what I see Group of girls besides me Looking pretty Why can't that be me?  They try to reassure me I see the lies through their teeth 
Spews out the maw bare n paws size of a bear yes, him Donald Trump with maniacal glare gussied up as inane name calling offensive   analogous to an overstuffed ego freezing cold stare
I can feel the pain sucking marrow from my bone leaving a blinding headache behind wishing for the pain to stop Yearning for the ache to fade Hoping for a moment of bliss To come and wrap me in a hug
All those eyes andstories told,impressions made oflives that we live. By low lights and candle flames,we intend to show some interest.
Best friends forever? More like best friends for never Every word you ever said to me was a straight lie. You played with my head and I just gotta ask "why?" Your selfish ways will never be forgotten
It is too easy to make affliction handsomeWhen it's lined with rhyme Traced by thin fingersThe numb glow of a dawn window.White drapes on skin and glassDark eyes torn with pain madeBeautiful

“They lied to me!” She screams to herself.   They promised! That they would be there for her.
A mask is what we wear. It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes. On the mask is a smile. Forced. Real. Unsure. Scared. Alone. Broken.
Why am I chained down by my suffering and misery? Please, can someone set me free?   Can you send me to my eternal resting place? To be free from my suffering.
I am lifeless. A heart without a beat. A body without a soul. A face without a smile. Ripped of my innocence and left with the empty shell of who I used to be.
“It’s okay.”   I can still feel it. The way your lips touched mine. Without meaning. Without feelings. I missed them.
This is NOT me! This is NOT who I am! This is NOT who I want to be!  
How far down does my deepness go? Does it only extend to the end of my clothes? Is it the shoes that I wear? Or the car that I drive? Do I appreciate the gift of simply being alive?
how come no one knows the way you are inside  except for him and those 
I write to you on this tragic day, To tell you how you have been betrayed. This love is fake, It was never real. What you felt, Was just a deal. You entertain me, And I make you feel.  
I paint my face so they cant see I paint my face to hide from you and me my heart breaks my face is fake my eyes are dry my hands shake 
We look to find just who we are inside Forever looking to find where we fit Having constant fear of being denied In the process some people just lose it Everywhere we attempt to interact
Concrete jungles and, Life without struggles Hunting for cuisine with, Sharpened green Traveling rolling canoes on, Dark gray routes
My ears bleed from the tales of your insecurities Why am I being cursed for the patience of my maturity? You seem to have tied your tongue in annoyance Every word you spit a spoon full of poison,
To some A friendly gathering Is but A show In which they can dress up In masks and costumes To share those lines  
Love is a very powerful word, But today we toss it around carelessly because the lines are blurred, Don’t tell me you love me when you don’t even know my middle name,
I feel alone in this loud room chaos is all around me  and it will drag me to my doom I just want to be free they are so so happy, smiling  while I lay there dying I've given up on it all
Today I saw the grass shake.   It was cold outside. But so was I.   I was only shaking on the inside though. I kept a cold exterior That’s what made me strong... …right?  
You said you love me but you couldn't find my eyes You said I'm the one but didn't know there was others  You said you cared about me but my feelings didn't matter You said I was different but I guess you didn't see
There's a smile on your face But I know that you're in pain Your silent tears leave no trace But things just aren't quite the same, and   There's no reason for you to hide
When I used to sleep at nightMy mind would always take flightIn the morning I'd wake up and you'd just take flight I can't stand to in my sightYea ain't nothin rightAbout you and me Us and theyHe and she ain't shit  All I want to do is loveWhy can
You said goodbye. I said wait why? When i needed you the most That's when you bounce the most. All I ever wanted was to talk. All you ever wanted was to walk. Walk in front of me. Walk behind me.

I used to sleep with Gum in my mouth It could actually kill Instead of keep you clean   But to clense myself I Was baptized Until I felt drowned.   Now I sleep with a toothpick
How long will it take you to realize you are fake? Don't you see, people are leaving you alone, doesn't your heart ache? I thought we were friends, but you are just a nasty snake.
No jobs , No will What can be done More school less money it’s all gone This great country is dieing ,oh and all for what They say be patient, they say its better
Who are you? Who am I? Does anyone really know? Who are you to tell me what I should say or what I should show?  
September 19. A friendship began. October 31. An unbreakable clan. December 25. Gift exchanges and cheers February 14. A new atmosphere. March 18. Eyes on the prize. April 20. Not so wise.
In this house, we eat supper as a family, no elbows on the table, But remember, keep your emotions neutral, that way you won’t be called mentally unstable,
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,
At first I thought you were diamond embedded And then I saw how imperfectly you were created You willow crying like you lost perfection And some of us see your little perfect complexions

All my life I wished to be special. I've never been quite sure why and perhaps I never will but I always dreamed of being unique.
There are a few things you should know, About me and my life, And what I've learned to not show. You don't know what I feel, I keep it well hidden, But maybe I shouldn't,
Stop pretending you are so nice, Hidden in the world like dirty mice. Faking a sugary smile with a honey voice, Taking a knife to your victims of choice. You are weak because you can't keep quiet,
Fake smiles, fale people, All that surrounds me. Walking past the windows Gives us a glimpse of what we are missing.   The people outside look joyous. Free to leave! Free to live!
When the sun disappears, As do the smiles and laughs. The image of the people we know,  Replaced by their melancholy twin. As night settles in, painting the sky black, Little glimmers of stars dot  the void.
I see these plastic people, Barbie dolls. With their dream houses and expensive cars. And their plastic friends, at their plastic malls. Getting “white-girl wasted” at plastic bars.
Come with me my darling, and take my hand.
The stirring of shadows  The waking of dreams A last stand in battle  No one hears you scream But you made it through  Which is worse to you  Pretending to be okay
It consumes all my thoughtsTakes over my bodily functionsIt's overpoweringRuling with society's corruptionsThe darkness devouring
I am purplexuated Simply by the untrue realities Perplexed at how casually we say the phrase "how are you?" And how often we say "I'm fine."

"Small little house Is it home? i don't know Small little barn With the pony In the yard Small little girl With her hair  So loose and free Small girl's family
"Small dreams fade fast But that's okay 'Cause it was never meant To go that way Even those who smile  Got one foot in the grave But you couldn't see That the happiness was fake But still
"Footsteps through the fire But I don't feel a thing  Burning even brighter I sour on angel wings Down in a ditch I can see the light If I could only reach I try with all my might
  Someone once said to me that I  fake it to make it. At first most would deny it, everyone hates fake people right?   Look around that girls smile?

I'm a liar. I'm a fake. I plant a kiss on his lips, A smile on my face. I don't care. I play hard. Rumors spread Cut like glass shards.   I'm a liar. I'm a fake.
To struggle here in this colorless world,
What color is perfection? That elusive transcendence from reality That which demands unnecessary change I see you, and you are transparent.   I am flesh and bone I bleed when I am cut open
you began to undress me and as each button of my blouse becomes undone a sliver of some imperfection slips past my possessions that once possessed me settle in a pool around my ankles
Words lose their meaning throughlies and deception.They begin as mere plain text with a definition to follow,but soon are tossed around in a batter ofgenerously margined synonyms and false connotations.
Long flowing hair Newly straightened teeth Swimsuit body and a heart that's free. Flawless is ambiguious Left to perspective If you ask me we are all flawless. Knowing right and wrong
Don't twist your words as for me to not understand. I am young but I am not dumb. I can see you from your ins to your outs as you tongue tie your words. Don't waste your time, I see right through you.
Red locks of fire Framing my expression Eyes of changing colors  From under the earth to the green above Legs of a gazelle  Nose of a boar Wide grin and sparkling teeth Pristine and perfect
Keandre Melton That's me Came from a family of struggles and hardwork That's me Watching my mom struggle because she lost her job That's me
Physically, I'm distressed, but I impress by dressing my best. Emotionally, I'm a wreck, gotta stay in check to earn respect. Mentally, I'm cascaded by the replays of the days that have faded.

Where do I start? Why does depression happen? What reason do people have to be depressed? They see figures in the distance,  and try to reach out. It takes hold of their hand, 
I’ve seen society fall apart.
So you found out Well, how do you feel? Me? I feel vulnerable Anxious Confused Judged Hurt Angry Destroyed This was a side of me that you weren't ready for
Took me a while to wake up looking this good My life had rocks and boulders  They have only helped me to wake up like this Now look at me   
Sometimes I don't think I'm getting to you anymore, usually when I can see the words going in one ear and out the other and back down to the floor where they probably belonged to begin with.

Head highUnless it’s coldBack straightAssured strides   Blue hairLoud voiceSmiles sprinkledAll the way   Real lifeDepressionAnxietyJoint pain

I hate these ballet shoes Everyday marks another bruise And as I dance with the pain, my brain is in flames, going insane   Working double time over what should be considered a war-crime
