I quietly lit a cigarette-the terrible ideas always winbecause they can.tempered glass breaks the ice.  I contemplated picking up the pieces...              but it was a beautiful night... I was lost in a song from another time, and the moonlight
5 months, trading kisses in my carYour hands tracing hearts around my armsOur lives, we knew would never be the sameOh why’d you have to go and change4 weeks, that’s all it took for me to fallYour smile I wish I could forget it allYour laugh’s for
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 used to think there was no way you could ever let me down, Then you broke my heart and knocked off my precariously placed crown. I used to think I couldn’t live without you,
Humpty Dumpty fell. Off a wall. He's an egg. He cracked. Broke. He probably broke inside, too. And he smiled. He couldn't get fixed. He got fixed a bit on the outside, though.
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,
truth only hurts when it interrupts the pleasures  we derive from lies pain only hurts for a moment sometimes i break my own heart just for the callous i earn
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.
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.
The Encounter Worthy of self and same. Higher value others are. More than harm from the unkind. Coldhearted. Brutal. Cruel.Pulling strings like a puppeteer.
NO MORE - By Debi Lyn September 12, 2022 @ 5:06 pm   This pain is new; it came from you
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.
Welcome to lake indifference Here you will find the vacation home of every man I have ever loved. Starting with cabin 208 Occupied by all the men I accidentally loved in high school. Or at least I thought I loved.

I met you, I saw you, I liked you, I poured myself into a mold that I thought you would want. You met her, You saw her, You liked her, You poured yourself into a mold you thought she would want.
i hope that someday i can change not just for a moment  but true change when i don’t feel these things when i can overlook those words which have disrupted my peace

Ours is an untamed love Fearsome Crashing like the waves on the shore Destructive   Our love is the wings of a dove Uplifting Pulling taut each heart string Unbreakable

  I'm gay, I'm straight, I love, I hate, I appreciate I disrespect.  I'm smart, I'm dumb. I feel  but I'm numb, I fight but I fear. I seek, I hide I run but I stay in place. I won, I lost, I gave it my all. I gave nothing.

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.
I’ve been trying for weeks But I can’t seem to find it I’ve been biting my cheeks like the idea is inside them   But the blood starts to pool with its signature taste I feel like a fool,
Yes I am broken, but I am not defeated. I am like a salmon breaking through the surface of the water in order to fight the current. I am a glow stick breaking in the hands of a child on a summer evening, spreading my light.
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.

Rain,  wet droplets hit my face That time of year surely brings me faith           As the water weighs me down I pray         that maybe I'll be able to touch your base
I trusted you  but you broke it  I gave my all to you and you accepted it  yet you let it all crumble like it was nothing its confusing  but the trust was lost 
  Sweat, I feel it dripping down, wet. Heavy breathing  I close my eyes, hoping it’s just me dreaming. Softly touches me, I hold him tightly...   Trapped,
I don’t have tattoos to hide my skin I use them to show what I represent within As my body is the tongue that my mind speaks And the stories I have on my body are still incomplete.

Take my hand It doesn't feel the same Cause in my dreams, you always stay Never close, but never far away Hold me in your heart.
These thoughts that lingers in my head I cannot explain   Only These thoughts are encrypted by him himself   He who’s not powerful or mighty   But me who’s brittle and broken  
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
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.
It's suffocating me Each brief Poisonous word that comes out her mouth is like a dagger plunged into my heart
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
It started with a kiss, something magical and great  Yet, quickly turned into a barrel of hate.  Avoidance of each other, so vile And arguments for miles and miles.  A bright love now flickering dim,
Having a broken heart makes it so hard to breathe I begged you to stay, but I ended up having to watch you leave Best friends? Best friends till the end? I guess with time my broken heart will mend
My family and I have been through some rough times, but them kicking me out is the worst part They left me confused, feeling unwanted and with a broken heart I'm going to have to find new ways to let all of this pain out
My heart started racing when his name popped up on my phone’s screen. I flash back to the many nightmares of him hunting me. I'm caught in a state of fear, attempting to read his mind,
bodily betrayal my fault still inside me years after the assault complicated nonconsent complicated discontent wasn’t drugged
Darling I am so broke And dead That we dont even Fit together When we meet Under the bed sheets Hidden in the dark Trying to find What's lost Trying to fix What's ruined
In every night, there is a morning. In every morning, there is a night. But in the darkness of every night, there will never be a light.
Light outside snapped and dipped around the old stone  and the clipped clean manicured lawn. i had to look up to meet your wild hurt gaze your fury at the top of the staircase above me 
“I’m alone and I don’t even care anymore.” Is what I have convinced myself.   When can I stop pretending?
“They lied to me!” She screams to herself.   They promised! That they would be there for her.
You left me so quickly. Am I useless? Do you not need me? The hole in my heart is growing, I'm turning hollow. Come back! I need you! Please!
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.
She gave him everything she had. Her body, soul, and heart, She thought they would be together forever. Her eyes folded into her face,
I'm always smiling. I am beautiful. My heart is not broken. I'm fine. These are not tears. I do not miss you, nor do I need you.
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.
I have grown more emotion, as I fill my empty void with memories. My childhood has been replaced with the deep though of death. I've said goodbye 1 to many times. Please don't haunt me my dear sister.
My heart used to be whole. But now it’s ripped apart, It feels physically broken. Will it ever heal?   My joy used to be full. But now it’s disappeared, It seems out of reach.
Why do we come to meet people That are just going to leave? Why do we get close to most, Because in the end it's just going to hurt. Yes, the time with them are memories That can never be replaced,

Engraving on the hilt inlaid with gold Newly daubed with tar of flesh and bone A ruddy smearing on the blade Tearing ‘tween muscle, marrow A carving of the heart
I believe we may have missed it the year of reconciliation The prospect of harmony, of order Just a smidgen from symmetry the precarious plane tipped
His chest was a battlefield. Logic v.s Fear. His chest tightened with every step that he let mark Walk from. His body a rickashay of bullets. Rattled by Marks earthquake steps. Silence is more defining than Erwin Screams.
My Uncle joined the circus, which is okay, I guess, if you like that sort of thing. Truth is, that sort of thing really creeps me out, like how  Lunchables 
I wish I knew How to fix things So that way they Wouldn't get to the point They were beyond repair Whether it be  Technology Jewlery Plants My Relationships Myself
Hand in hand,  heart by heart, Bodies intertwined. You were the wind beneath my wings,  but now you've left me to fall, bones broken and alone I will stay until my  grave has been dug
I wonder if you know that I love you With all of my broken, twisted love, With all of the love you threw back at me,  And all the indifference you used to drown me.   I fight the love you give me;
I am no one special You are no one special Most people can’t handle that Can you?   Kissed a guy in his 20s She was 17
please dont leave me  please dont go  i need you i want you  i miss you  you out of all people I hoped wont leave  you not like the rest, you were there when i needed you 
            I am constantly trying to remain sane but the status of our relationship is driving me over the edge            or maybe i am already over the edge and the breeze of 
I'm sorry, but who are you to judge a book by its cover? I could give you the world.. BUT  I'm an infant so I guess I can't light your world up.   I'm sorry but who are you to walk away from me?
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  
To my before me, I miss you terribly The naivety you had the light that bestowed upon your eyes
I let him latch onto my fantasy  I let him become a dream, I could no londer touch He became a delusion of my conscience  He was everything I painfly molded him into

Dear Katherine, My friend. My love. My life.   It’s was a new year.  I was starting over.  Not sure who to trust.  Not sure where to go.    Then I saw you.  Recognized your face. 
Dear my love, I saw you today, you spoke to me and my universe turned to align with yours. I turned into the blushing bashful schoolgirl I though I would never be
I DONT WANT TO So don’t But I can’t Can’t? Good! No I can’t not I can’t can’t I can’t not do What I dont want to.    But you try Do I try? When I try I fail
To my loved one, Days have passed by where I constantly think of you. Of our love that was once like crazy glue. Lately, I have felt so alone and distraught. That love has become an afterthought.
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.
He called me family. He told me family is forever and so were we. He told me no one will ever love you as much as I do. I believed the pretty lies and was a pretty girl. I kept him happy and lost myself in the process.
you say you love me but what is love love isn't bruised knuckles and fights at night at least I don't think it is love isn't pinning me down under your knees and yelling at me and me begging you to let me go
my mom's gf and her roommate would have parties almost every night and every weekend random guys and girls would come over to drink the night away and that's when I'd want to just sleep my life away
Dear Old Me, Hello back there. It's me, your future self. Go sit down, Prepare to frown But know it won't last long. I know you are So innocent, Though you may be rotten.
They say it's beautiful They say it's gorgeous Until they've touched the thorns They've been hurt by the pretty rose Why does it bring pain?   They say I'm beautiful They say I'm gorgeous
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.
You have fallen too far down the rabbit wholeyou couldnt see the world above, you went too fastNow you are broken and your pieces are too far apartand there is
A bundle of pieces; gears take over your heart. No flesh, no bones, just a pile of useless parts. Every morning, first thing, don't forget to press start. Otherwise, you are isolated- God forbid you're set apart.  
I am afraid to love something that is so pure yet wrong To be a bird flying against a current going To Who knows where
You know how in college being rejected is emotionally easier than being waitlisted. Being waitlisted toys with your heart— you were good, but just not good enough. Wait and see if you finally make the final cut.
It’s that single moment where everythinggoes numbgoes blankgoes vapidgoes cold
You've read my secrets to the class, Now I'm drowning in my tears, Once again I have no trust, For I now have a fear of being love, Its your fault I'm broken into shreads,
Dear Love,   For someone so nurturing to others You sure are disloyal to me Why is it That you come so Faithfully.
How many times do I have to slit my wrists to get rid of the poisoned blood in my veins. It was once believed most issues could be cured by draining the infected blood.  So how many scars must my body endure
  My chest is tight My throat is closing  My stomach is in a knot I feel my heart breaking I close my eyes I feel you, next to me You are noiseless  You are cold 
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 Koleen,
My mind is littered with thoughts of you a buildup of constant doubts complications in the code the manifestation of our story  
To the boy I loved in high school, I remember the day you told me Everyone has an addiction for some it’s smoking and others it’s binge drinking My addiction wasn’t nicotine or alcohol
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
Its frustrates me. It pisses me off. The way she can say She wants boyfriend When I was a great one But no she dumped me Cuz she was gonna cheat on me. Like what the fuck
A Letter to an Absent Father   Dear father- or rather to the man Who simply donated DNA. I'm not sure if I can call you "Dad" Anymore because a father is 
Dear Passat, Or should I say Piss Ant-   You left as fast as you came, but aged, as though every wheel rotation was the mark of a century. I wasn't the first to own you,
That empty-headed smell lingers in the house chanting his name as it swims through the chilling breeze. His name. His name spits out of mouths and into my ears.
Oh it's you.  Hello again! I know, it's been so long, it's so nice to see you! What do you think? I've barely been holding myself together.  Are you kidding, I've never been better! How's the wife?
In the wind of despair, my soul flies free. Forever lost in the pit, a maze becomes my heart.
Dear mother I know you didn't mean to I know you didn't want it to hurt me  Dear mother why couldn't you see my pain  Why couldn't you hear my cry Didn't you know I had a storm inside 
darling, you are broken and your ruins are the worst i have ever seen
It was all just a dream,  That I once thought it wasnt make believe. Your lips against mine went from the moon and back,  Every touch planted on my body, made me feel complete. Every word filled me more with joy.
How are you feeling? Alive. Alive? Not the exciting breath of living life to the fullest alive,  but the complete and infinite lack of any feeling left alive.
I count the stars, splattered across the black marble counter, waiting for something. Waiting for the light of morning, waiting for some meaning, waiting to see something more.
see that look in her eye torn up broken wings how can she even fly the hate her life brings as days and days go by  
Believed in you like a religion But too bad people change every season Did things for you, some hasn't even been mentioned.And held you down, to now from the beginning.Dreaming about mansions and cooking breakfast in the kitchen. No one was for yo
I didnt know what love was until i met him. I only read about it in stories and dreamed of it.   I dreamt of a happy ending   I didn’t know at first.
behind my smile is a hurting heart. behind my laugh, i’m falling apart.
I made a promiselong agoin the riveras we rowed.I said to youI'd never cryand crossed my heartand hoped to die....We got olderas all do,and distance spread
There was a room, and in that room were three things. One was a lightbulb that was off so no one could see what was going on. Two was a chair that sat alone in the corner with no one there to watch.
We didn't need time neither did we need someone else I needed you by my side and you wished to be here now.   But it is not my fault  neither is it yours this happened how it did
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 think you know what lies behind, The the walls I’ve built up in my mind. There’s a deep darkness inside,
It was the words of the broken that spoke through me, fast & rapid - a tidal wave rushing through my shredded memories of her weathered face lying on that broken bed. All alone. 
People love to hurt. We must because we do things That only hurt ourselves.We try and fix other’s damage, Only to mutilate ourselves. Trying to fix someoneIs the most damaging thing we can do. Because we might actually fix them,But they break us. 
We were born and raised in a society Where our worth is determined by our waistlines,   Where the size of our butts are more important Than the size of our brains.  
my heart has been raised in the dark the light was a foreign feel it was too late to stop the start to my broken heart it was surreal when he looked into my soul it was like an electric shock
Broken heart, broken lies, suicide Beautiful butterflies with wings torn by silver thorns The white rose turns red by the color of her blood The stars fall with her tears As the sky fills with her worst fears
I’m with You. Entwined within the gnarled grasp of somewhere that is not quite Rockland. It is darker, for the place that confines us rests snug within our skulls
I left town even though I loved him because I had no other choice than to follow the path I was told I had to take and my heart shattered into a million pieces  but I held it together
Because I Love You I protected you from bullies since we were little. "Crybaby" "Loser" "Whiny" "Weak" They called you all this and more, but I stopped it Because I Love You. Classes separated and we drift,
Because I love you Take           My                   Heart Because Love is patient, kind, and humble Please            Don't                       Start Because Love doesn't
Big hands, Soft like Clouds that Quickly turned Into violent  Fists scarred With the Old memories Of us.
Titanium armor over a soft heart. A wall of brick in front of the armor. Stoic face, glassy stare, and a slouched posture. Always alone, forever quiet. Isolated and alone. Phone notifications empty.
There are these people that you call friends. You can list them down in the order of who you’ve known longest. Or maybe who you wish you could forget the fastest.   When it comes to friends,
she worried about him as his family drama drew his cigarette closer as the smoke filled his lungs, time kept getting slower. as the aroma of nicotine filled the air, she could feel and smell his hurt and despair.
For me,  you were a miracle,  a secret,  untouchable, youthful, my favorite metaphor, but it turned into the darkest poem, you took what I had to give, until there was nothing left,
Broken Fixers.   This life isn't broken. It was never a working thing. The people didn't know. They cry
Your lies are bigger than your fears The voice of your heart which you can't hear Secrets were never meant to be kept But now your soul is trapped
The incapability of writing, On par with the emotionless feeling Of seeing your (once) loved one, Loving someone new. The unbearable pain of Trying to brainwash your mind
See thee now, who hast betrayed The ways of old, the sacred sage The time that flows in strands, a stream Its silver waters under your light doth gleam You robed in white with flowers crowned
What do you say to a person you never talk to? A quick hey? A silent nod? What do you say when this person is your mother? What do you say to the father who wasn't there, But is now deceased 
Sleepless for the reason of no more dreams.   For the reason of not having anything to think about. For the reason of only having nightmares and why things won't happen anymore. Happiness is sold to the past.
You left me, yes it hurts,  your the only one who really did love me? yes I'm still in love. you gave me your all, you choice the drugs. yet, your still in my thoughts.
"Why am I so feared?"  I ponder this ages. I ponder this for years.  I am the "Evil Queen," they say.  "Snow White, the poor girl!" they say.  I wasn't always this obsessed with beauty and such
I gather Broken bits of clay Broken pieces of glassMend them together To forget 
i am young i live and breath with days to come and time i don't need my bones will break with fickle force and a constant requirement to make a choice   in my youth,
such a simple time with love in your eyes it was but a rhyme filled with sorrowed sighs   Ivory Skin Satin Sheets You were MY in But you never released  
Once upon a time...   Not so very long ago Before the wind had come to blow A girl who lived with long blond hair Came to finally see the snow.   To her delight, and her mother's fright
It has started, the final battle. This struggle of emotions, that slowly takes over   Everything comes to  halt, a stand still, a dead puls, all the struggle   But it should not hurt this much.
Standing in a mirror trying to change myself imageLiving with the guilt that daddy couldn'tFinishEvery blow to the brain was a reminderMy momma fell in loveWith a coward  Scared to admit he was broken
And there were stars in her eyes That glimmered like the waves of the ocean Until one by one people came and snuffed a light out Leaving her eyes as dark as a black hole Instead of as bright as the sun 
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'm sorry if I was sharp with you: but it's just because you descovered something broken." I'm sorry if I ever yelled at you." but it was just to cover that I'd flinched as you'd spoken."
When I was young I would avoid the crack in the sidewalk I used to think I had OCD… My need to not step on cracks in sidewalks consumed me.
One day gone. And not even that. I miss you already. My throat is sore, From having to make up for my lungs My whole chest is left weak from the gaping hole in my heart.
i’m focused the Computer not comprehending     whether or not i am truly thinking about what i am  
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,

It’s fragile Breakable Something that shatters Shatters with a touch A word A thought Doubt Self-doubt It eats at it Like a cat Plays with its food Like tiny voices
I am sewing a dresswith the thread of strength,And knots of ambitions,And when it’s ready, Then will iron itwith the remission,I am sewing my broken soul!
(This poem was written in response to the murders of Carter Davis and Natalie Henderson in 2016.  The students lived in my local area. I hope they find peace in heaven.)
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
I want to live till thirty  Before my bones crumble into dust   I want to live till thirty  Before I stare out of ancient eyes    I want to die young Before the pain becomes unbearable   
we started off great  we started off happy but you started us off with someone else we started off together now i feel we are going to end apart  separate  you'll be fine  ill be dying inside 
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
  I never asked for it.. you say I'm nothing like your ex's but that's a lie.. im a bit of both... I hurt you... and I cheated... I didn't want to I was lost at thought
The pain of the cuts in the bleed and the bleeding in my cuts, the sorrow's rush. Explain to what is happening, this unknown feeling of the pulse of a dying heart. Because I gave you my all. What makes it worse is that you left me to fall.
You and I we´re made of broken glass broken dreams broken hope bitter dust burnt to ashes stuck in a timelapse of what we could have been  could´ve done should´ve said
Today in the world, People are obsessed with diamonds and gold. Children forced to sit still, Forced to bend to their parents will.
Here in a room, with a glass full of liquor. And crushed to know, I desperately do need her. Standing there, staring right towards a mirror. Feeling helpless, like a tragic bum filled with anger.  
Here on this broken ground I stand, Flipping through the pages of history books. I see evidence of God's loving hands, Over a land that God they forsook.   America the beautiful, 
Half past twelve Ticking began Surrounded by waves In lengths that fade Silence screamed And my heart gave way To the beast inside Never felt this way
One more moment Frozen One more moment Paralyzed Break the ice and the silence  Break the silence so deafening I'm your broken mirror Look into me here I'm your broken mirror
I spent so many years with an empty feeling. With you , I was filled. I was whole.  I realize, you were always that missing part of my soul. Now that you are gone, The betrayal runs deep.
He's done unspeakable things He's torn lives apart Yet I still hear wedding bells ring They ring within my heart   Oh, love, you make me foolish The lack of you makes me weak
Once upon a past We were inseparable Like light and day Like two trees That breeds true With overflowing gaiety Sharing a common root. Oh, it was the finest blend!
I- am who I- am I am thunder- and I am lightning- I crackle, pop, and sizzle. Nothing can phase me You insult me I bear it- You- hate me I- don't give- A damn! You see me now, I- still don't give-
Desire. My desire. Your desire. Desire. Something that can hold you so tight but will so easily make you lose your mind. Desire.
Broken to Beautiful This world is Broken Sadness Floats the air like smoke from a cigarette Depression
Upon the past year great strife in few ways, More postives than negatives but still shaded in grey, The deepest cuts done to my hearts shortened days, Once abounding in glory now shortened and paved,
Good friends are the ones that give you Russian dolls that  Come apart   Because they know that's how you're feeling  That you need a visual  Of the inside of your own heart  
You ask me if I'm sad;I tell you I'm ok. You ask me if I'm mad; I tell you I'm ok. You ask me if I'm happy; I tell you I'm ok. I fake a smile everyday; To show you I'm ok. 
Because I loved you We ended as quick as the ocean blue I quickly lost how to be true Everything around me crumpled and was swept away by a ferocious wind that howled as it blew
I am broken. A billion shattered pieces scattered… Who will put them back together? Perhaps no one will…….. Shall I remain as broken as this tortured world?
We shared moments of happiness together We planned our future We thought that we would be forever We loved like each day was our last on this earth We thought nothing would ever get in our way  
call me out of the shadows i call home call me out of this place that stripped me to the bone call me out of the burning fire of life call me away from the blade of a knife
Labels are a dangerous thing. It’s good to feel like the happy girl,

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,
Memories are meant to be a cherished moment.
What is it like to watch me cry? What is it like to wipe away the tears from my eyes? Do they match in color? I can tell you what it is like  To watch you cry Every heave of your chest
Life is funny at times we have our ups and we have our down There is so much to be said and done yet nothing comes out We grow to adore and love someone, then we find out that it’s not reciprocated 
I was taught how to love but not how to stop. I was taught how to dream but only round the clock.  I was taught how to eat but not how to be petite.  I was taught manners but not the standards.
You cannot choose stuck in between black and white a winter day a long piece of charcoal old movies dusty shirts pencil lead staples in a stapler elephants
Soaring spindles, and tall towers Crafted by divine powers   The architects were gods they say When they built on that long ago day  
I don't know what I don't know.That is why I never asked questions. All I ever wanted to do is "go with the flow",But then all at once I learned. About you and him,And you and that night,About you and everything I don't agree with.That day felt li
Why is it that I find myself stuck in a picture frame so often?  
Many things in this house are broken this family is not one of them. The stove door is off the hinge, the lights are dim, and we need propane. Mom is well though, and Sisters off flying planes.
Through the silence I hear the screams A picture of a perfect family lying in a broken frame A lifetime of happiness A lifetime of lies "If possible I never would have married him"
I'm running out of time To find a rhyme That tells you are the one. You take my heart You break it apart Yet you are the one for me.
Here again; I’ve built these walls.
Promises are easily broken, Trust me, I should know, Promises are meant to be kept, Not broken, Like broken glass, Into all these shards, Cutting you, And reminding you that
You speak words at me, but words mean little. You tell me things I don't want to hear, things that break me down. You tell me things I only dreamed of hearing,
my stone, my stone  oh my cold stone heart  why are you callaous and set apart? my black, my black oh my shriveled black heart? why when I need you, do you depart? my hard, my hard
                               I left about a year ago and hung pictures on the                                                      Wall.
They say beauty is painAnd she's beautifully brokenShe's left hallow and emptyBut her thoughts go unspoken
A friendship so beautiful, The world's eyes are forever searching, But fail to find, rendered sightless by greed. The hatred tries to bleed into, incompetent.   A home broken like an ocean floor of glass,
Its 3:00am and here i am still awake I keep crying and overthinking, but most of all regret You're even in my dreams, thats why I can't sleep I know that i'm fucked up, and I know i've made bad choices
I am just a traveler in want of a little rest I had been blending through a city of the oppressed Dimming me down to the filthy ground Screaming at me, they surround
Words are like water. They flow from the mouth as if it were a waterfall. They cause rain in the form of teardrops to roll down the mountains
This is what I have left, The last connection to who I used to be. I write to remember, I write to forget, I write to find where eternity meets the end. I write about hope, Long since lost
It's too bad I'm not a mas-o-chisttie me down like i asked-for-this   I'm screamingI'm strandedAbdicatedAbandoned   No. Free. Will.  
I shattered silently, And nobody noticed. Not that I want anyone to notice, So why am I writing it out? Perhaps it is to escape, And have the pieces elsewhere. Perhapse it is so I can see each piece,
It felt like we were stepping out of a coming-of-age fantasy An assault on my senses, the sensation was too much to bear. We walked into the cracked pavement that was washed under the sun
With each heavy breath, the world slows down around me With each number added to the board, the fire inside burns higher With every footstep, my legs turn into wheels on a downward slope
Smokey room filled with chills, Empty bottles, and pills. Today's fears are tomorrows tears.  She feels Euronymous creep in, As he shatters every seam. Today she is seen but tomorrow dreamed.   
Plunging into the abyss Of your pretend security, Blanketing the truth Of your own pain, From me. I handed you just myself, My soul, My heart. And you trampled it Like an egg.
"Don't you dare forget the sun, love" That's what the song said. Then the question remains of why? Why do those words mean so much to me? Why do they haunt my mind? The answer is the sunshine.
Mirror mirror on the wall I can't look at you at all. The image of me distorted will be, And my mind from it shackles will not be free.   Mirror mirror on the wall You hasten my downfall.
You were a pen Long, slender, and sleek A sharp tip aching to cut through ink and paper   I was an inkwell Dark, mysterious, and opaque
3.30.16 He stole my golden halo and clipped my white feathered wings. Perhaps he's merely a lost boy who needed them more than me. He claimed I was part devil who
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 don't know what to do anymore I don't know who to talk to anymore I don't know how to love anymore I don't know how to live anymore....because you're gone.  
I suppose I would like You to know that I am sorry. That’s how all apologies and the like are supposed to begin, With that admission of guilt or regret or something that tastes like bile
Bam bam! One fist after the other. Pow pow! One too many hits.
Is today that day The day so dreadful to me Where you took my heart And shattered it to millions Then burying with your lifes  
Look at me. No, look at ME. What do you see? Do you see the me in me? Or do you see the me you only know? The me outside of me? The me that everyone else sees? Look at me.  
It stings deep inside Though it reveals itself As righteous anger Or perhaps A blind fury Is more accurate Your blood roars With the urge To inflict pain Only later
Where to go What to do I'm so confused Heart aching  Torn in two I always knew Somewhere Deep inside This feeling  Of being lost But knowing And feeling
It hurts again This familiar pain The ache in your chest The depressing rain The gloomy sky So high above It feels cold And chilly And somehow wet And it feels like
One of the hardest things I do Is talk to you. It doesn't happen until I snap, And all hell breaks loose. I try to tell you, But the words are impossible to find. When I do my best it is dismissed.
I was just twelve. Twelve years of age when the words hit my ears like a blood curling scream. Pinned up against a wall clutching my heart as the words pierced me like sharpened daggers.
When I call out, And ask for help Nothing seems to come. Just my echoing voice Bounces back, leaving me alone. The echo comes in your criticism, And what you point out as wrong,
It didn't take too much To bring me down to my knees. To leave me laying on the floor Covered in bruises and blood. To leave me laying alone in the dark.   So here I stay on the floor,
My voice echoes off these white walls. I feel so alone. Actually, I think I feel nothing at all. The sun is starting to set. Damn, the sun is leaving me too? What can save my shattered soul? What else can I do?
My gears were slowing their spin My battery was running low Cobbwebs started to grow on my heart A heart that had trouble beating I was Shutting down Then you came by
Poetry, building up inside me. It fills me up until my lungs explode, It’s love, that brims at the seams as it sloshes
Behind every smile, You know that there is some sadness. The sadness that we mask With forced laughter, With excuses for the tearing eyes. It is simply much more simple to smile,
Another smile, another tear, Another kiss, a lot more fear, Another hit, nothing is clear, Another memory that will last for years. Another heart that has been broken, Another wound that has been opened,
  On my ribs they stay, Permanently marked, A reminder to my heart. Sixteen stitches, black and beautiful, Surrounded by words above and below. Words that gave me strength,
You're nothing, but a low life, not even wondering where all the bad went, but she is.   She's nothing, but a low life, loved with all her heart, and still failed to be faithful.  
The cracking of the bone echoed deep within my soul. I faded in and out. My limbs became cold. What seemed like seconds was more like hours. The beeping was steady. Guests came bearing flowers.
Thanks for the reminder That what I do is worth nothing At least when it means nothing to you. Though it means the world to me. Thanks for the reminder That I "waste" my time 
You're broken. I see your hurt. I wanna help, but you push away. You tell me you wanna leave. You said you're taking away your pain today. But what good will that do darling?
At the moment it was the same  the perfect scenario, fitting in  the life of two to become one   it’s shattered like class dropped 
Society has convinced me that I should be one piece One whole piece, with no chips, sratches, or cracks But what people do not realize is that society is no human It was not born with eyes or a heart.
Our words will stumble from my memory, and I will not feel any emptiness When the sun's light sees her own reflection In me.  And then I will miss you no more   I will walk with quiet footsteps;
 My Box    The look, its there for none to see  but me.    The way it is  I can not bear
She led the mortal lifestyle trying to know what's cool  Carrying feelings of littleness she learned from school  She packed her bags and mapped out all her goals and moves  Now she's living in the bath house; her whole soul consumed  
You could say that he was a Carpenterof sorts ---he built heartsfrom the outside in fixing rebuilding with his own parts, making a sacrifice just to hear their laughs just to see their smiles so that his own mind, his own soul could just possibly 
God you got my soul. When I drowned and fell through water that shattered. All the broken peices that fell off of me. Like a puzzle peice. Instantly binded. You glued all the peices back inside of me.
My life is broken this I admit, my words spoken
"Because a wall is better than a gate."    Someone told me,build a gate around your heartand let whosoever inwho has the key to the lock.
Once you have seen her you never forget. A girl who is too hurt to forgive... The boy with the bruises on his heart. This girl, The girl with the shattered eyes, Has no one to listen, No one to talk.
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
"Can't put your mind in a cast but broken things aren't meant to last  Like walking on broken glass reminding you bout scars of past cause the world went by so fast  But not you,              your stuck
Your personality is a smile. You glow with it, beautiful with such imperfections.   
It seems like broken hearts are the norm in this generation! What happened to the good old days where you didn't have you worry about who else he/she was talking to, Where you knew that you were the only one they were talking to, Why can't we just
Thick thighs Golden eyes Innocent smile Shared desire.   Frantic heart Jump start.   Lost in time Lost in space.   Thick thighs Golden eyes Wicked smile
It's been 15 nights in a row, rainstorms have passed and left my pillow drenched. My chest is filled with dark smoke and shattered glass, I am left with nothing of my own, not even myself. But it's okay, I know it'll be okay..
Once I thought you were the one we never fought or sought to be wrong You helped me through the days but in the end you threw it all away You told me you couldnt live without me
Think before you speak, We've all heard it before. The wonderful advice we often ignore. Unaware that words are as sharp as swords, Cutting into our flesh, the demons we bore. I stand at their mercy,
I sit there in silence, Alone in the dark, Listening to the soft hum  Of the words that float around In a familiar and gentle sound. Staring at the empty room before me, Wondering where I went wrong.
A foggy night, dizzying heights, the heady scent of the things he tries to fight Thunder crashing, his heart's thrashing, raindrops splashing, nature's might Safe and sound, enclosed around him, a resounding consequential  roar
Out of sight, Out of mind, Never to be seen. A broken memory, A broken dream. Left behind, Left to fight all alone at last, Nobody to save me from myself, Nobody to help.
I don't belong in heaven, I'm not accepted in hell, I'm neither angel, nor demon, I don't belongin the human realm. I have some power, and nothing to give. I have a life, whith nothing for which to live.
There are times   Times of happiness and times of joy. Moments that I feel like the sun.    But you can't look at the sun.    The sun It shines so endlessly, affecting everyone it touches
I woke up craving you. What is really new? I love you, But do you really love me too?   Or is that just more lies that I believe when looking into those pretty hazel eyes.
someone asks me how we survive day by day, night by night? i want to tell them that we don’t but the words taste like falsehoods on my lips because the truth is, we do survive. but we do not do it alone.
long ago we knew each other now we are nothing but strangers how did our friendship end we were two peas in a pod separated at the stem
Is this how it is supposed to feel? Broken and scared. On the floor in a ball crying Hearing the raging in the background Words thrown out Nothing you can do to take them back Two way street
Second place The backburner The fault bearer Worthless Stupid Idiot Liar Anorexic Twig Bird   In the background I silently watch as work takes over
I have been beaten, broken, and blamed I have been disregarded and ashamed but by the digging through the light of the untamed
You told me you loved me You told me you cared But you left me that day Alone   I stood in silence Stood by myself Recalling the words you screamed You said I didn't care
"Thought she was alone And still she prayed Her hurt reached further than her bones And still she stayed   Her mind can't handle control Instead she gave Through Him her love would reach a world 
"It's your name i call Until my throat is raw Because i know you saw How, with my fatal flaw I felt your absense like a claw But still more poisin there is to draw, Out from the wound
"Watch from a distance As the girl he loves caved Picks up her head  As she tried to be brave Tears cried alone  He knew he could save  Her eyes held an anguish  Was it too late?
"Mother,Father Are you happy now? I tried my hardest But you still shout Brother, Sister Don't you see? The locked doors How I hid the key Leader, teacher How did you miss?
"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
"Your smile fades  As you look away I see the broken pain That is causing me shame Why couldn't I see What was pointed out so clearly I went looking for trouble  But it was right in front of me
"Anger, Wisdom, Regret, Pain,  They think my life is just a game I can't stand another minute But if I fold now I'll be defeated  Their torture stings like a thousand knives But I can't trust these awful lies
"The wolves inside my head Gnawing at my brain Try to take my essence  And flush it down the drain Remember who I am If it's those wolves I tame If I can't defeat them I might just be too late
Must I be patient for my own demise? I do not know what is out there, beyond crests of time, pillows of snow & schemes of wonder. Lust towards unknown  and unheard of realities.
Along the island’s shore lay the remnants of the ships debris. The salty air from the ocean breeze fills my lungs and burns deep. My eyes squint at the dominant sun, and my skin sizzles from the blistering heat.
 so glad this happened   I am so happy for you  I'm just in shock is all    I'm not laughing   I don't think it's funny  these are not happy tears   a heart cannot break 
She runs away to hide nobody giving her a second glance  so no one sees her cry why can't they give her another chance Broken girl all alone locked away in her room putting on her headphones
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?  
I kept it locked up tight for years Hidden from the world Fed it every night with my tears Then to the first bidder it was sold   He played me like a fiddle My heart dropped in price
I see the earth cleaved in two, The tides drive away, Sweet angels mourning, As night befalls decay. The crash implores the heavy sighs Of men dying for a breath, Signalling the final song
Ode to the lost You don’t know where you are Or where you’re going Only where you’ve been   Ode to the confused You try to understand
It hurts to know- you're not enough Hearts shatter like broken bones              and words ring devistation You waste yourself in incomplete Promises and crushed dreams  
It's hard to say hello After you say goodbye When the days are mellow What's the point to even try   The chances I missed All the times that we kissed Everything we did I thought real
Dismember me Pull me apart piece by piece Torture me Hear my screams Break me   Then put me back together
We are broken, And shattered And crushed And tattered   We close our eyes and hope for something better But we must cope   We are laughing and smiling
       You ask me if I'm sad;I tell you I'm ok.You ask me if I'm mad;I tell you I'm ok.You ask me if I'm happy;I tell you I'm ok.I fake a smile everyday;To show you I'm ok.But deep down inside,
Your words fell like grace and warmth They rolled down my shoulders like the water in the shower I could breathe when they consumed me I was safe as they drowned me I wanted to live inside them
Wind breaks my chest as you continuously blow me away. There’s something inside of me seeping through the gashes of your comfort, Telling me that the cracks within your embrace
Her dreams torn apart Her hopes crushed forever and Nothing matters now
You said you loved me From the first day that we were together You said you cared for me And that you would forever. Those nights we talked
I am the essence of hopelessness. The girl labeled with a disorder I knew nothing about, In only fifth grade, taking two different drugs. But no one ever told me why.  
When I'm alone, I frown. When I'm around you, I smile. When I'm alone, I cry. When I'm around you, I laugh. When I'm alone, I want to die. When I'm around you, life is worth living.
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,
Love Hate Broken   I loved you I hated you I was broken by you   I loved your smile I loved your laugh and the way you made me feel I loved cuddling
Rise   What is it like to stand alone? Isolated, deserted?
I thought you´d always be there I thought you´d never leave Now you’ve left me standing With my heart left on my sleeve   You swore we were forever And never will we part
I am flawed in every sense of the word. 
She always seeks the broken hearts,And she tries her best to fix them;Drifting around from here to there,
All I wanted was to be wanted You gave me meaning A purpose A reason to live I lost myself in you Who am I without you You said you loved me But then you left me
I've done everything  that you wanted me to do.  I broke my hands  just like you.  I can no longer walk  but I earned my pay. Congrats Mother  you had your way. 
Do not pick broken things up.  Your bare, un-callused hands should not reach out and caress.  Do not try to glue the pieces back together.  You will end up bleeding.  You will end up with a leaking, half-assed excuse for a cup.  You will be burne
So long I have lived in pain Yet he just now can see All the pain and grief That consumes all of me   How can I be happy When I’ve only ever been hurt Instead of vowing to heal my scars
I remember sitting in your floor,  A pizza box between us, and a pillow fort behind.   We were talking, and I wanted to touch your hair, It looked so soft.   It was, 
You use to look at me the way you look at her, and I use to love it,  Like I use to love you, but now I just miss you.   It's was easier to stop loving you,  Than it is to stop missing you,
You smile at me, When there's no one better to smile at.   You sit with me, when there's only one empty seat.   You laugh with me, when there are no other jokes.  
A Broken Mirror, A Bleeding Fist A Silver Blade Against A Wrist, Tears Falling To Lips Unkissed, Ignore Her And She Wont Exist, She's Not The Kind You'll Come To Miss...
91 words that make you feel like a full and blooming flower. Ethereal Fresh Dewy Soft Running out of words like An Olympic track athlete running from the nightmares of a broken childhood.
The sunlight slowly began to fade, It's silent whispers hissed, "Don't be afraid." It disappeared from empty streets, as little children hid under sheets.   Darkness filled the broken ones,
I tried so hard to stay by your side
Mesmerized by the beauty Lost in the harmony She is Not focused on the problems But the glory Nor the sadness But their story Not attentive to their faults Only noticing the shine
Is it not funny how When one domino falls None of the others
I’ve begun to pick up the broken pieces of my heart. It’s a slow process but 
A perfect family But only to the eye When you come into their lives That perfect family has very dark lies But o'no one pays close attention
Darkened is the mind's vision when grievingCrawling about, looking for luster.Unsure of your purpose, you tryand mend the pieces-- clingingto the fragile ideaof logic, reason.Vision finite
When we are left empty, lying on the floor, the only way to have hope,
The weight of denial sits on my shoulders, adding pounds to an already crumbling structure, 
You can never forget the way it burns, the way your chest feels like its on fire, your heart consumed by sorrowful flames.
Their are so many mirrors in the world,
As the night comes on With the moon hanging low Stars glittering in the sky Magic of love comes along   It fills the air with a sweet perfume Where your love surrounds me Wrapped in your arms
Sometimes I wake up smiling, most days I don’t however, but I force it on. But if there is one thing that everyday has in common it’s that I wake up wishing you were still here and that you weren’t gone.
Ive always hidden from his eyes
A silver-backed glass staring back
I'm empty insideMy heart was ripped out of me
Not even cheap wine can cover up your lies.
I woke up craving you. What is really new? I love you, But do you really love me too?   Or is that just more lies that I believe when looking into those pretty hazel eyes.
I never sleep now, I'm awake when the sun comes up, you know how much I hate that?
Where were you  You said you'd be here but yet your absence is pretty fucking clear. The hole you left in me is not done tearing me apart, I am slowing becoming into what I've feared the most; nothing. 
A little more nice and kind, But it seems you were evil while I was blind,
Often I find myself in thought Silent on the outside, screaming on the inside Internally I fought
To worship you, God I live to worship you In spirit and in truth I live to lift you high In love and adoration I live to love you fully Convinced of your love for me Eternally encompassed
Who the hell are you? to tell me what I can and cannot do. You are an enigma in itself you will never figure yourself out. Simply because you do not want to, and you are nothing
Sometimes i feel like the lowest of the low. I feel like I am a plague and that's only me being vague. 
The black bird hiddenA crow, dark as nightAmong the willow branchesCascading to the groundA song so mournfulFlat and broken, a puzzleIncomplete.
Why is it that something or someone you care about is soon forgotten? Like you promise them you will never forget them, but you forget them anyway.
I could do a milion good things but you only see me when I fall. And I'm not as tall, To you I'm a little girl just in the mist of it all We could have been something great. Something so magical. 
I wasn't alway
Last summer I drank my heart away and my insides became soggy. Sitting against alcohol my 
I always caught myself cry Alone, in the bed where I lie It feels so good to cry
Cried all day Pain went away
Humpty Dumpty fell off a wall Humpty Dumpty had a great fall And all the kings horses and all the kings men tried in vain to mend Humpty's suffering head   To no avail it came though
Why do I make people my top priority? I work my ass off to please. It is weird how they don't care with ease. You push, fight, and scratch your way into their hearts just for some one to fake love you.
Are you ready to be fooled? We break up, we make up and then everythings okay. But now? nothing is right. Where is the makeup part to our routine?
I looked into her eyes and she said the words that I knew were coming they were the dreaded words that no person in love should have to endure but every man must "I think we need to take a break" 
I've been breaking hearts for far too long
Black hair Brown eyes Dimpled cheeks Sad smile Scarred ribs And shattered soul She makes my world Alive and whole
She needs a sensitive soul. A gentle touch. A loving heart.
Imagine all of your life and experiences have built up the world around you like a snow globe.
I encouraged myself, I mounted on a voyage to the far reaches of space a spaceship fueled by the sadness of my heart a pioneer of the cold, the void, and the emptiness
They say, "keep your friends close But your enemies closer." I ask, then, how do you know? Who is your friend And who is your foe? One moment it's sunshine And happiness and laughter.
Without a care in the world I stare at the lens in front of me,what has become me Behind the lens you will find the real me, not the one I appear to be It's inside out, without a twist of doubt whats becoming of me, you see
Mama once told me “You’ll never find love If you can’t love yourself.” Maybe try to look like you care.” She left me in the bathroom Crying while I brushed my hair out. Mama said to me,
I think I started my new life As an anorexic angel. I woke up to my chapped pink lips Breathing snow that looked like ash
tired. that's the one word that constantly replays in my head. sadness. a terrible feeling, like you're sinking down, down, down into the depths of the sea of despair :( lonely.
Is this how it feels Like your heart is slowing ripping away Your mind slowly shutting down Everything getting blurred No longer able to hear Breathing gets labor
I thought His love for me was infanite ​ Him. It was Him. Just simply and soley Him I wanted Him and only Him. He, on the other hand, Wanted to use me
If you could see inside me
I never have time to just cry I hold it in 
When I think about you it hurts Not just emotionally but mentally and physically My soul cries out loud While my eyes remain dry
They say you always know which kids have no dad You know the ones always starting something, doing bad, roaming streets, making trouble, proving the stats right. Now Uncle Sam trying to keep them in his sight
It is futile to cling to something so fictitious. The world fades away. White.
This the object most fragile, And most adhering. Knows no wisdom.
mommy, you're broken. i hear you at night your bottles are clinking  it fills me with fright.   mommy, were broken, this family i think the yelling seems constant we continue to sink
The smell of smoke lingers in the air Blowing towards the crack longing for freedom to escape its beholder I am the smoke looking for a place to go To grow. I can fly with the wind and
I cry at night Not for myself but for others For all the pain I have caused And all the pain I have endured I've been deemed unworthy I've lost so many Including myself
I am in need of something better.
t's 6:00a.m on the morning, For a day that's prolonged, aggravating and boring, You're tired, and exhausted, These are the years of our lives that are the most awkward and stressful,
I am not a perfect angel
God gave me a heart to love To sympathize, want, need and all thee above
I am a man stuck in place while others were always told, go ahead or try again
Deadbeat number one. You walked out of my life before I even got to learn what your skin smelt like.I'm sure if I dug way back in my locked away, too young to remember, 
She doesnt know she poor, Even when life tells her in many ways Her refrigerator becomes empty. Whenever she is hungry she can't even find a whole meal. Her family barley has enough food to last them until they can get more.
I thought i could Trust you, To help take away the pain, But as the nights grow colder, And the days grow shorter, Your starting to fade away, Like an old Memory!
how could you
I remember watching him sleep, his eyes fleeting back and forth under their lids. I remember him drawing long breaths, and his heartbeat wavering in his chest.
A rainbow of promise,
Dear Bully, I feel sorry for you you must feel so helpless so alone so hurt that you must hurt others so lost, so confused that you have no other way to act to lash out
We’ve always shared the words we never speak
I look into your eyes that are now so bright... My eyes are dark, with just a flickering light. Oh, how I miss you... I wonder if you miss me too... I don't understand what you see in her,
Treasure Your Love 
Every answer is a lie, Every night it all unfolds. Only when I'd rather die Is when the truth is told.   Every answer is one I hide, It scares me more than you know Because when I search,
I hope I forget your eyes And that I couldn't look way. I hope I forget your smile Because it makes me wish you'd stay.   I hope I never call you  When its late and I can't sleep.
Bleeding because it paints the pictures so heavily spilled in my mind. And seeing the crimson upon my skin Gives me pain that makes me real.   Crying because It makes me view
Burning cheeks Warm froth on the tips of eyelids Lips quiver and teeth clench   Tears dry on puffs of red skin Nose yearns for air Throat swells   Broken lenses 
When I was five I was considered for having OCD. To my family at the time they laughed at how I was "considered". It's a mental illness, you either have it or you don't.
Sometimes I'll lie awake at night thinking of everything and nothing all at once (Another sleepless night) And every time, a thought will cross my mind (Never welcomed) And I become sad
Sticks and stones dont compare to the pain inside me wound up too tight to be fixed my heart bursts but does not bleed my eyes sting but do not tear because I've taught myself not to cry
I once held a heart in my little palmhopeless, broken, barely holding on to the thread of life  
I was born a joker, never a king, never any good at chess. But I was thrown from my castle when you made that play where you loved him more and liked me less. but I digress...
I dreamt that I was witnessing a war Not in full action But of its ancient history   Looking at the artifacts of someone else's life Wondering who'd they'd been Where they'd walked
I Dream of the moments I could spend with you the love we could share But slowly my dreams corrupt bringing me closer and closer To reality you were never my light at the end You were my broken promise you are something To me but I'm nothing to
Falling, fading I'm slowly losing myself ino the eternal hole of darkness pain, betrayal, and abandonment is all I have felt in my 17 years of life my smile does not reach my eyes
Everyday feels the same, like im going insane, trying to stay in this game, No one knows, what I dare not show, And no matter where I go, You are there, showing you don't care
i guess i knew i would shatter  if i let myself fall for you as hard as i did. but i did not expect microscopic shards of myself to fly through the atmosphere and land miles apart.
Hey.   Hi   Are you ever going to answer me?   Daddy, I know I have screwed up alot, but please just say hi?  
Why does this happen, why do I stay? I know you’ll never love me, but I can’t keep away You said you’d never care for me, yet I still feel as if there’s hope
No rhythm No rhyme Just me And myself Dark hands Bright face WIth a dim glow in the eyes Worn out By the challenge Of living each day with a smile Inside
The feeling that you have when your families dislocated,and that special feeling of family, you wanted recreated.You want your parents to get back together,but when you ask your parents, they say that they'll never.
I am worthy.
The layers of tears that I've cried have stung my eyes to that point of where seeing just becomes painful. I don't want to give up. But I'm being forced to give up. Or am I? No, this whole situation is fucking bullshit.
Baby girl bent and broken, bleeding,
And then it hit me;you never loved me. You don’t treat someone you loved like that. 
A mark here, a scratch there She never feels pretty enough Consumed with the thoughts of others Make-up used as a cover But there are no real flaws
Mom a word that's supposed to mean safety,but to me it's the epitome of MAYBE,  MAYBE she'll be here tonight or tomorrow, MAYBE out drinking, I'm thinking, this word mom makes me feel irate,
Release me from this cage, These wings are mine to keep. But like a bird with broken wings, I will never fly again. For it was you, Whom shattered my dreams to fly.
I wait, stagnant like the water beside a dam, wanting to move forward, but I can't.  Not yet. I am stuck. Restricted. Where did my voice go? It used to verberate so loudly through the mountain tops,
Behind the hazel, she's just a lonely little one. Behind the hazel, she wants to the world to be gone. Behind the hazel, she's fighting everyday. Behind the hazel, she's scared in every way. Behind the hazel, she's slightly shattered.
I can't control my brain The pain makes me feel insane And I don't need you opions, on my feelings You can't imagine what it feels like To wonder why you're broken You can't imagine what it feels like
“Free me”, she screams in his face.“No more.No more a moore.I am a river.I flow.I live and give
Thank you for trying to save me. Thank you for trying to make me love myself, but as you can clearly see, I am beyond saving. I have lived my entire life feeling worthless.
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
I remember a little about  that cousin in Rikers I remember a little about  each relationship
You had the bullets, 
V1: Always kept me on the shelf what a never-ending hell can I cope with all the stress? Everyday I’m so depressed   V2:
At my high school, I was a guy that everybody knew.  Everybody would dap me up and say "That Boy Rube."  They could easliy point me out by the waves in my hair and the color of my shoes. 
No! I do not share stranger-stained cabs with beautiful guests of the nightlife. 
Behind the curtain What I keep hidden From your eyes and mind Is strictly forbidden   Under the mask What a clever disguise
Flowers bloom red across the crimson water flow A ripped and torn dream hidden behind hallucinations
I'm afraid.
Crashing down,falling hardBroken dreams, broken heartI guess I'm not really sure where to startPicking up after your goneWide awake at night, listening to our old songs
Thump thumpWho’s there? Nothing but the breeze.Scrape scrapeWhat’s that? Nothing but the trees.Imagination taking overHearing everything but reality.
Going into the dark chambers of your mind Where the voices whisper The hands claw Waking up in a cold sweat Gasping for breath Longing for air No, you won't go back there
I gave up a lot To pursue this love But now it seems That I was blind and dumb     I dedicated my life My entire childhood To pursue a dream
My world is crashing down around me...
You see the Iron Empress Who standing tall, stoic, regal. She hides the Carefree Clown Who could entertain for hours. She hides the Lovesick Maid Blinded by love unrequited.
My life is miserable like yours
We should both fly away like a bird, you say. Flying sounds much like heaven, unlike the hell on earth. But I struggle to lift my wings; The demons drag them down. I don't want to deal with this,
I’m shattered I’m a broken piece of the world Trying to climb out of the pit of despair Yet I still dream Of a better tomorrow
I am beaten. I am broken. I am forced into a mold, with no hope of escape. With an iron grip they hold me. My actions, controlled with impatiance and cruelty.   But my mind remains free.
Your honeysuckle tongue has all the backlash of a whip, 
I wanted to tell you how I feel, But I don't want you to run away; For the ones who I care for and love the most
Four years. Four years and you're letting go, not me. I desired to keep you. Like the folded up piece of paper that you placed in an envelope and sealed with your wax kisses.
I'm so lost. I'm so weak. Everything I thought I once knew is now gone, its all down the drain. I feel so alone. I feel forgotten. No one care for the way they make me feel anymore.
If you dusted my skin for fingerprints you would find a multitude of people have touched me in all of the most
A smile covers the face of a boy from a broken home,
I used to be different The world was brighter I always had a smile  Nothing could bring me down
People from across the globe fall in love from house to house or thousand of miles away Never meeting except online what if you met that person face to face would all those feeling come flooding back
in this moment, I did die. the smile on your lips. the soft touch of your skin. the twinkle in your eye. in this moment, I could die. the sound of your breathing. the rhythm of your heart beating.
Look Here N, You stole me Yes for the very first time someone has stolen me in years But please know I’m very fragile and have high self-esteem And unlike the body I live in I don’t have any fears
Am I wrong to think about you like this? Will I open up your skies? You would say no and walk away pissed But you know I know I hear your cries We have the same heart same beat
I think that is a good question C+N? Will it ever work while I hurt and think about you Knowing that the love I have for you might be true But it doesn’t come back to me boo I guess I’ve lost the argument
Remember when you used to say that you wanted t
The name N goes so far He really does he’s like Jafar Giving him promise, my times, and even my attention It’s like he’s got full dominance Beautiful green eyes like emerald seas
I hope you think of meas you are flicking through old moviesas you are kissing lips thinnerfar thinner than my ownas you are hearing words that triggerpast text messages exchanged
once i love you it can't be changed no matter what the out come is me  and you R one forever
loving you isn't the hardest part lossing you is the worst part but not being able to see you feel you love  you this hurts me the most      
A sweet glow follows his every glance, My seductive love heats the land.  While we spin around enjoyuing the dance,  My love travels the world holding my hand.  Bringing cheer to fauna and flora, 
I opened up my narrow sighted mind In hopes that it was you that I find with my luck the sun will not shine you continue to give me no signs   the rain pouring down it hurts my ears 
Two broken souls, Lost at sea, Will find each other, When it’s meant to be. But for now, They search and search For a love that burns bright. They look at the same sky,
Take the lives , take the lives for what you are
I see you. I hear your words. I feel your tears as they fall, forbidden from your eyes.   Oh how your sadness consumes you. Outside lies the false imagery of peace.
If you arent in a sport, You aren't "popular."   If you don't smoke or drink, You aren't "cool."   If you read away reality, You are a nerd   If you fail a class,
I am in a room alone Full of friends here to help me  As they move place to place, I remain succombed to any new help or  change Because the small white ovals are already working to
You don't know meI'm not the person you think I am
You grab my hand in prayer. Theres surrender in your eyes, even though they're closed. These are the cards we're dealt, they were never chose... I remind you of your strength, even in your weakness.
Mind over matter, to the mind of matter  to those minds that are complexed, perplexed. layer upon layers. Inception. My deception  My perception, my out look on life.
I'm so sick of pretending like I'm fine Like I'm okay with the way My life has been Like I'm cool with the fact
Dear Dad, You're never there, and you'd think I'm mad, but I'd a;ways think You'd have time to spare, for me.   Dear Dad, can't you see, you're the one I've never had.  
No one undestands what it means To be alone To be ignored To eat your lunch in the library Hidden behind stacks of books So no one can see your shame To look at your feet when you walk
When we run, what do we have to show for it? When we're nervous, no one will know of it When we draw it, we obscure it And defile and hurt it It's ill-conceived to put  The word love, with the word hurt
With every word they say Her heart breaks a little more She only wants to break away A way to stop feeling sore Shes sitting in her room now Her eyes are empty, hollowed out She can't take it
Can I sleep forever? When I sleep, I can't feel the pain.. The pain of not haing you here..
How many times will I be told, “Smile you may look prettier”, or “You know what they say, you are what you eat” All these expectations, these standards I live with day in and day out
  What I have trouble with constantly Is what I am ashamed of the most People look at me and say that girl is so extraordinary She can be herself without worrying about being ordinary
An unreliable narrator She was always at a loss for words Expression never came easy, nor was Compassion, understanding, empathy Love Was not a word in her dictionary
It was all incredibly detailedHow he dove into her drained eyes,How he explored her dark and poignant soul;
She died of a broken heart falling asleep with the sound of Love Love Love in her ears. She had no emotions left to give She was done.  She was done-done-done, girl. She was done.
Behind the Curtain of Staged-Perfection  by Janae 
You know I thought you were the one. I was caught up. Entangled in your web. I inhaled you. Skipped school for you. Dreamed of our future and ignored my dreams for you. Gave so much but in return I received lust.
Being. Who we are. Hard to grasp, Yet easy to forget. Never really looking at ourselves. The time has come to let Us look in the mirror and see That who we are, Who we will become
The Bully I hear their ugly words, echoing in my head. Ugly…Worthless…Nobody… I wish you were dead! Words cut deep, can’t you see?
You came in took my breath away You look me in the eyes You took me by surprize Will you come  take me to a place I've never been Just tell me when I will take that leap of faith
This word has ten letters That cut away at my sanity This word is like a drug It ruins my life Each letter individually brands itself into me So that I will always remember them
We once said those words, But do we even und
Anxiety   It looks like the gray sky prior to a storm, caked with layer upon layer of ominous clouds. It sounds like the silence after howls of the wolves rip through the air.
Left on the table edge, can't keep it in much longer, Pushed to the edge of my limits, can't give anymore, Fear boils inside of me,
Beneath the mask is a life unknown But to some life beneath the mask is all they know.   The thoughts that spin through their head at night And the smiles faked in the morning light.  
I am not my depression.
I hope that when you hold her
Some nights I sit in my room, thinking about every possible thing,  Doomed for nothing but sadness. When I'm driving, I think about my life, my regrets, what I forget,  But most importantly I think about you.
Expect this, expect that You think you know her like the back of your hand You see her with a smile
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" Or so they tell me. But everyone seems to find the same things beautiful. Blonde hair, blue/green eyes, thin. Barbie doll perfect Barbie doll beautiful
Oh no, I have nothing to hide. Never in my life have I tried. I have always been happy! I will never be sappy. Not that my parents bother me, Nor is it ever a biggie. All that matters is your glee;
You taught us to be just But there is no justice. You taught us to save people But they are dying in the streets. You taught us to love But hatred runs deep in our blood. You taught us to live
Sometimes I feel like the hands of a clock Always rushing down, down, down Falling into that deep, bottomless pit – Called “Time” – Something that used to be mine. Protests chime like discordant bells
I wanted to say, “I’m sorry” for the longest amount of time. I wanted to talk, To explain, To know how this crumbled under a fault of mine. Somehow I knew – You didn’t care You blamed me
There are broken things in this world Things torn assunder by apposing forces And in the end Someone, somewhere, always wants to fix it No matter how small Or how large There's a smiling human
The cellar is quite, cool, dry.
Strong, brillant and independent I stood,
“Still” by, GiGi Spata Captured, trapped, broken A mangled mouse in a trap Like a beautiful bird in a cage A precious puppy in a pound
Things like this don’t go away The sadness builds as you try to be strong Some days you can’t even get out of bed You don’t tell the ones you love If you do they get mad Like it’s your fault you’re sad
(Before I was saved, This was me)  --------------------------------------------
You made me believe it was possible to trust another human being. Of course the only reason why I've become so cynical of trust, is simply because i've been broken by constant sorrow,
I, do not like me. I am the opposite of normal, the reason you can't sleep. I am the tears you hold back when your heart is breaking. I am the smile in over the years you have perfected in faking.
A Shakespeare sonnet to befit a king The sun will rise a bird will sing All these clichés to express emotion Of love of sadness of endless devotion
It was a joke Such a cruel, sick joke The type of joke that your best friend pulls on you When you are sleeping
My eyes can see like a hawk, my ears hear like a hound I can see that there is no more us, I can hear this heart breaking sound
Some open book you were So open, I could see the dotted lines on the pages you scribbled on And everyone knew how to read but me
These hands, that you once held I gave away to the wind because at least they know how to hold something
This trial and error This beautiful pain, has left me needing more I really wished you hadn't slammed that door behind me,
You told me not to cry when you were gone I tried to hold back, but life became a waterfall and just when I thought I was going to survive,
I know you cannot promise me much right now, because your integrity is kind of low, but if you could tell me why you're here
The world has not seen who I really am There is a fear whom one may know I am a girl who is afraid to show My laugh is loud and filled with joy People see me as if I’m a toy
 Fitting In. Well what does that mean? There are many meanings. To relate just wonder, but don't blunder. You want to be part of a group Have friends to relate too.
Left with a broken smile, A twisted girls mind Can take you a mile Through the decisions she's made She's haunted by pain Brought to light to see The only good decision she ever made
I don't make friends easily, I don't put makeup on my clear face, I don't have a sexual drive. In teen words. I am pretty much a fail. I assume I don't belong. To be honest, everyone's so similar and
  Family. Such a  frail fragile thing It is a living ecosystem of aunts and uncles Mothers and Sons, daughters and their fathers. What becomes of this intricate unit when it is disturbed?
I have a past, we all do Some of it is lies, other things are true My grandma said I lied about rape My aunt said I was fake My church said I was a mistake My friends said they needed a break
ReflectionWritten by Adam M. SnowI am alone this night of flutter;confusion reigns, so I utter, 
When my wings got seared off by the sun, when i free fell, saw the ashes of my hopes and dreams gently floating after me, I thought I was done, that the ocean would end my agony
If you can't read the photo it goes-   Here I sit in this rut once more, waiting, longing. I wish I could stop but it only goes just, beat, beat, beat. And the raging thump continues just
The same brain, body and gender.   Having a light make-up,   We go out.   Wearing pink dresses and high-heels.   As usual...  
jump head first into the flaming inferno because he told you so   try not to sweat when he calls you a pussy   let the third degree burns be a reminder to never trust a soul  
Broken people, broken things, Shine and glitter in the light. The greatest miracles to be seen, Is what God can accomplish with the broken by His might.   For from great sorrow can come repentance,
This poem is directed towards my eldest brother... who has been on a heavy drug addiction for the past year. He has a 5 year old son who he barely sees and has got himself in a lot of trouble with the law. Hour Glass of Tracks
"You're broken," she stated like he already didn't know. "Damaged goods," the boy agreed lightly. She licked her lips and stared.
I am alone A single soul Who's heart is cold Bound by the thought of everyday madness Kept awake by the sobs of every night sadness  The tears feel like fire upon my eyes The days end in long sighs
Diamonds fill the sky Just as they pierce her skin and become rubies But she will never grace their beauty with her gaze Leaves become the gradient colors of the sunset But she does not see them
People say I'm beautiful.
There are moments in the night when I wish for someone to lay next to me, embrace me in their arms, and not let me go till the moon finally takes its leave.
In the past, I was the one that was intelligent. I was the quiet one. I was the teacher’s pet. I was criticized for being a girl on the drumline. I was the one that played too soft. I was the liked one.
Drifting far as I walk beneath my shadowFor so lon
You may only have Two Feet but A step at a time is All it Takes.
Music is everywhere: In the grass, In the wind, In the books, In the kin. Even without acknowledment they play their tunes, not looking for acceptance, nor appreciation.
Sweetheart, let me in.It's time for our lives to b
Inside of me there is an asylum,             surrounded by a moat of milky light bulbs;             the only bridge burned long ago.   The dungeon holds a dragonfly
What is love? his pitiful weeping, hunched shoulders shaking like a 9.5 earthquake his pain, sudden and hot, the mind is blank, but the body still feels his screams of agony, he'sdeadhe'sdeadhe'sdead
You were there for me from the start We hold lots of memories in our heart There was a time we did everything together There was a time we said friends forever Soon things started to change
She looks like heaven  to me She says no but that's okay not everyone can see The way her eyes shine in the morning
We are looked at as misled, misguided.. When really, it's these kind of people who save us all.  The broken ones are the true heroes,  not wanting any recognition. Selflessnes is their virtue, 
I cannot let me feel To feel is to hurt Hope turns black with each shedding tears What once felt excitement is only filled with dread I cannot escape this prison I made for myself
My skin, my bones are crumbling.   My remains are becoming dust.   And from my decomposing self,   I hope that your flowers will grow,  
I am fragile. To look at me you would see a young woman standing at 5 ft. 3 inches and think “Of course she is fragile.” But no… My stature does not determine my strength.
I met some folks at work today. It was my first day at the job. A fellow staff gave me some keys Then turned to fill out paperwork. Now I can unlock chemicals, But how can I unlock a heart?
my heart explodes in joy at the sight
Seven years down the drain, Seven years of suffering and pain,  torture and greif,  finally a release.  Chains are all broken.  memories are erased,
And then it all began again Her mind changing, slipping, slipping into the dark abyss that is depression Her thoughts became darker The world became greyer
How do you make sense of an upside down chair when the sky sees the surface that belongs to the eyes of the earth put it right side up again and then finally it is useable yellow chairs bowing to the trees
The monster inside me is winning. I tried to hold it off for so long. My strength is winding down. This battle is won. I am messing with love. You love her, and I cannot control that.
Looks reared you in, but my personality didn't.Except that personality just isn't.At least not entirely.You walked by discreetly.Did you even notice me ?
Racing into the night, heart pounding with vengent fright. Nostrils flaring,  eyes round with quivering fear. How does anyone get out of here?   Wooden bars staked in the ground,
My best friend, inseparable sisters Yeah, that was us. Laughter resonating, together to the days end Sharing secrets, sharing stories, sharing memories Sleepovers and movies, playful gossip
Alone. Alone. Alone.    He walks away slowly, lost but not gone. My face burns with acid; my fists are solid stone.   Alone. Alone. Alone.   
I'm vulnerable for you... In this moment, my words only come out true. You say nothing but your actions show we're through. Leaving me to dwell in a reality I wish I never knew.
  The world is a mystery, Forever unclear, An insolvable puzzle for everyone here, Trying to forget their own history.   The skies can be dark, Everyone scrambles trying to learn their part,
“Pretty as a princess” That’s what they all say Tuck you into bed with story time.   “Wish upon a star” It was just a childhood dream As you stare out the window at night  
Maybe you fall down sometimes Maybe the voices speak up again Maybe you get lost easily Maybe you don’t have to have everything figured out Maybe… Maybe some days are harder than others
Sometimes it occurs to me That everything I struggle with Is because of you You will never wear a welcome mat As well as the porch steps And now I struggle To answer my front door
From Your Father: I was not raised to be what you need. I will never love you And I left to spare you that pain. I was never ready to be your father, And so I chose to never be one to you.
Depression filled her mind completely, With thoughts she did not wish to think, Thoughts of the past, the pain, the suffering Imprinted on her brain like ink.  
Is it time for feeding? Because you gather around me, Feasting upon my looks,
As the night comes to an end, I realize that it's me. I'm the only one to blame, For the mistakes, For the heartbreak, For the sadness. Every bit of me craves you. But I know now,
I'm the man in the sky  I watch you with my hazy eyes Take my hand I'll set you free Step into my reality   Here there ain't a ceilin' with walls
A troubled teen, she wonders the streets, a paint can in her hand. She wants someone to notice her. She wants someone to value her, so she will receive her value from afar.
She was in the corner when I saw her. She was broken and alone. Only I could see past her jaded smile. She looked frozen like a statue made of stone. Her eyes were not bright anymore
Goodnight, Moon Eyes, I guess our stars are gone And although I'm just a black hole, I know you could be my sun
My hate is embedded in a never said promise
Blind sighted, the lines they dance to pipers unanounced, Lion's hiss, the spark and bounce, that'll traunce the transient, Posting yesterdays warnings, a dustbowel gone, wiped out with the men and mice,
I've tried. I've tried so hard to be your model older daughter. (But I'm lying about that, aren't I?) I bend over backwards, I drive across town, I work my ass off. (But I'm so lazy.)
Everyone's broken in some way. Everyone's been through something, everyone's experienced a hardship, everyone's been so tired to the point that bone is melded to skin and blood is the normal sweat. Everyone's broken.
I don't think I love you. I don't think I can. My broken takes up too much space, To make room for a man.
We’re all just broken toys 
  I can't see a world with out you , But then again I can't see  I'm blinded by your love, my insecurities. 
Tears fall from closed eyes, eyes so beautiful they should never be sad. There is a joy, a light of life within them.
I need someone who will be there for me. A person who is not afraid to get down on their knees. A character who will be a hero and not a villain. Someone who can make my life thrilling. Can anyone be that person?
I am not broken
Love.  It comes in many forms. The love a parent has for their child. Instant. The love a dog has for its master. Unconditional. The love a sibling has for another. Growing.
he takes all i have  and all he leaves behind is my regret and sorrow that has remained for quite some time   i fade to ashes in the wind when his words singe away my pain
A little white lie changes a life Your little white lie changed my mind Quite like a gentleman I thought this love was genuine A change to be your heroine Your motive was fleeting
I don't know who I am anymore. I don't know what it means to feel motivated in something that you really love doing since people expect you to be perfect. I continue to push but for what?
Like a puppet with ripped strings I hang limp from a tree that is rooted in bad seeds. I have no direction and no recollection of anything but the present. Everything else is blocked out and I always want to shout.
I fear she'll come in my life and make her mark
Love is when she sleeps in your arms
It’s plain to see that I was a second choice. You can’t even get your mind off her when you’re with me. You kissed me. You made the first move.
Here I Stand across the way Between a gap as wide as the grand canyon Two worlds separated, and our hands never touch It was a giant shift from the crust of our Earth And the flow of tears that shaped the divide
How Can You… Hit me like it’s nothing, Cuss at me like I’m something Bad, and think that fucking With my head is natural? How Can You… Play these games with my heart Like a board game found at K-Mart,
I hope someday you love someone I hope you love her with all your heart Just like I love you  Then she leaves you with nothing but hurt Just like you left me   
Elementary came and went,While High school Just flew by,Now my sights are turned for Provo, I got accepted at the "Y".Start to Pick Classes now,Not sure what major to choose,
As the tears rolled down her face, she thought she was all alone; No one to hug her, no one to tell her that she is loved. Her thoughts began to strengthen.
I'm the type of person to keep things to myself.
i look in the mirror and cry myself to sleep
Half blood, Half flesh, But fully family.   Sister of mine, You have broken our bond, Tread on my trust, And shattered my hope.   Over the years our family has relayed to me,
Stop. Stop telling me to cope. Do you me enough to say the words you have spoke?   To ask me why I’m hurting just isn’t enough
As each girl takes her first inhalation, She becomes a host to the cycle of corruption. And it starts as society's thoughts creep into her ears,
I have a mirror. It’s broken The girl I see in the mirror is not me. I am young I am beautiful.
Is it because me and my gurl dropped out Our sophmore year of high school, for becoming 16 yr. parents? Was it us taking that risk? Or was it life we decided to miss?
This is for those who can't stand up and speak.   And if they ever did, they would come across as weak.   The ones who are lonely, hurt, alone, and broken.  
Maybe One day I hope I will make enough new memories To fill up all the gaps and holes you poked into my mind   One day nothing Will make me think of you again
You act like you can't stand the sight of me
Trying to connect with my past
  My images were distorted, a played out fiction book of torn pages and darken memories. A scripture that I will never forget,
Knocking on the sky and I'm listening to the sound  as I'm trying to get some of the thing they call love  My eyes see something my brain refuses to process Suckling from the teeth of life just to gain strife...
Close your eyes, Go to sleep,                 Dream of us- As deep drums                 Mark the beginning.   Ravenous human shadows Singing brutal blood-stained
Daughter left behind, though her semblance seems strong, she yearns to loved.
Words their beautiful some damaging others uplifting Tu Amor I love you being thrown around like tossed salad where's the dressing the feelings being  involved not everybody loves the vegetables dumped into a bowl of
There are meadows we all will see , my friend There are meadows we all will see. There are flowers sprung up amid the sidewalk cracks There are seashells in the sea. Your time is yet to rise up
Broken, beaten, torn apart Where does one thing end and another start Blacks and blues the new set hues Turns and twists end with a fist
This is for the mother
Controlling ... and so revolting,
"so how was your day at school?" "fine"every singe second i felt like shit and i wanted to come home and i wanted reliefe. "everything good with friends?"
I'll leave you be That's what you seem To desire You left me standing
How is it that you took a whole person and then shatter their being? How is it that you can make me the happiest and the saddest person in the universe?
Mama I'm hurt Feeling his cold dead hands is causing insanity,
She's stronger than a willow In a thunder storm Soft as a heart of gold
Give me hope Let me be a beautiful flower that blooms from the ashes of an un-privileged past Give me hope Let me feed from the opportune victals of a chance for higher education Give me hope
I hate locking my heart away.
Pieces, broken pieces. I am a puzzle piece, one that doesn't fit. That feeling, burned down Broken, can never be fixed.   Pick me up, move me around Make me what you want.
Because I've been broken before. Because trusting is none existant now. Because you lied to me. Because I jump to conclusions. Because I'm weak. Because I'm broken. Because I've learned to know
I want to take you apart. Bit by bit, deconstructing with my mind. Bones and skin and muscles Take you down to your most basic components. I want to see you stretch. I want to coax your skin into
Broken child Save her from his grasp She's been here for a while She's growing up too fast
Everyday I cried over you And waited for the day for you to come through
I began to walk away 
Listening. Ears wide open. Words traveling through my circuits Transforming words into feelings. I try to understand what you’re going through
I've been listening to the same song over and over. My broken heart sings along because it knows all the words. The tempo fades out. Encore.
You know those moments When you just want the world to leave you alone, When the littlest things make you break down in tears, When there's so many things you want to say, but you don't know how to say them,
Run away from your problems but where can you go? Run away from your nightmares but you keep drifting off into a distant sleep you want to wake up be told your whole life is a dream
But I am lost   in a matter of seconds; I have left those clouds  
Broken hearts are like broken glass Hearts shine at a glimpse of light but... Are going to shatter at the slightest crack Like Cinderella's slipper, falling to the stone Broken, with no one to pick up the pieces
It’s not that
I’ve never felt so lost, Nor felt so helpless, alone, angry and frustrated. Nor have I ever cried so much, or as often. Never have I asked “why” so many times. I’ve never been so weak.
The rain. The rain. My bare feet on the cold wet ground. I stare across the vast expanse which is my city. The trees. The houses. The lights. The cars. As the rain falls, my world seems to go in slow motion.
one, two start the day new three, four 150 cals, no more five, six i dont need to be fixed seven, eight youre all too late nine, ten never wake again
The therapy didn't put things in perspective and the pills don't make me happy The pain still hurts and the tears still come I'm broken inside and I can't find all the pieces
Falling, F   A       L           L               I                  N                      G Down you go How does it feel? To know you were once so high;
Just like any other, I have secrets beneath my smilesA story untold that'll catch many by surprise
When starting out  We are like a cocoon All wraped up in love Blind to our surroundings As time goes on we start to break free We find out that our cocoon of love Was never what it seemd
  It is 2 A.M. on Friday morning. The world is asleep while I lay restless
Volleyball is his game  He aint lame it's all the same with Ken in the end Volleyball
i knew you were my hero
Its funny how we walk past each other like we were never friends we dont look in each other eyes because we might remember the good times we spent together
God work your magic through my hands; I'll heal the souls of the dedicated. When they break like rusted baskeball nets, I remind them why they entered the game. Remember when you dad got you your first ball?
Honesty is all I would change maybe if we all could be genuine love would not be in vain if I could change the roles of honesty maybe a liar would feel the victims pain He lied to me that's why I feel this way
They all love you. They think your a king... I don't see it... You hop from girl to girl,  snap their hearts in to thousands of pieces, just like its no biggy. But really to me you look like a piggy.
As I retire I perform a similar routine It involves a person Sometimes it is dream He is only a boy
It was in that ineffable moment, the blinding glare from the spotlight above struck her eyes, the bottom portion of her crimson gown brushed against her ankles and the stage, shimmering in the light. 
When life was lost in lies and sorrows Dreams were turning into horrors
My hypocritical being Gets battered by the hardships of life. On a downward spiral, Slowly ruining myself. Karma's a bitch, And depression hurts. The only thing that I thought would help
OutsideThe entirety of my resolve runs with the river of tears thatTrickle, thenAfter a brief moment of suspenseBreak free, carvingCruel lines down my ravaged cheeks, a howling flood letLoose. My eyes are

The infinite love  Till death do us part The raging war Of the head and of the heart Words never spoken Feelings never sought  The build up of this dangerous thought
I don't understand why you turn backs on friends. First you tell stories using my name,Just so you have someone to blame. Then only after you make all these harmful jokes,It's my self-confidence you've begun to choke.
We are so focused on teaching our young people to dream that we forget to teach them how to reach these things
 body of a goddess , roses melt at her feet . Her body says it all so she doesn't needa speak . she's intelligent not a soul will ever know , her name doesn't even matter cause she's known as a hoe .
The Red Queen wanted red roses. The roses were whte, so the cards painted them red.   Red roses a common symbol of love.   I paint roses everyday for you. They aren't red,
(2/14/14 1:40 P.M)  
What is left to say, you're gone by night, nowhere in sight by day   It almost felt like a nightmare come true,  so alone the most when i needed you,    Inside of me i felt dead,
' 'she is nothing but a slut' ' face pale  lips Glossy ' 'she is nothing but a freak' ' pale blue eyes  chocolate lockes ' 'her makeup looks terrible' '
Dejection, No affection. Depression, No expression.   Happiness? No. Not anymore. No more blessedness. No more galore.   Why do I still love. Why do I still trust.
  You only write once slam
  Not Over You 
Although change upon myself would be lovely,Although change to the faults of the world would be just,
I am a punk rockerRocking out to the drunken moon. I am the moon drunken on the everlasting plea for the sun's rays to shine on him. I am the super sun shining for a day that never ends.
Scream and shout Breathe in, breathe out
Confusion on a silver platter served up quite nicely for all to enjoy. Or rather to think of in a derogatory way within themselves. The case may vary, as many grow weary.
Oh how I love you so, yet you do not seem to know.   You know the amount of tears I weep, yet my heart you continue to reap.  I have tried to save you, but further you stray.
im thinking a thought about how strange it is to see you not waiting for me at my locker
  We all knew her before her mind took her under under a spell know one is sure no cure It happened so fast a spiraling of events I imagine the grief they must have in their souls
It's red, staining the ground someplce I've never been and never will go. For me. It's a sacrifice, a total giving of life So I can keep mine. I can breathe
Help me- I'm broken Help me- I'm lost
What would anyone want with someone as broken as I? What man could lot at me without pity?
You’re what I yearn for From the crown to the core Lusting for you more and more Your splendor is all I’m seeing
I've come to the point of broken, There are no more words to be spoken. I come to you on my knees, You alone I seek to please. This place has just let me down, Hopeless is renown.
A man that made her feel safe Took her in like she was his own Betrayed her by making his claim  It was ruthless. She called out for help No one heard her scream Belittled to nothing -- nothing at all
Like a mirror shattered,
Running,       Chasing, Hoping,      Waiting. Hiding tears             And hiding fears. Scared to say,           Scared to show. In a room,       All alone,
This is the start of something new, Where I forget about the old, Forget about you. Where I stop crying Because you broke my heart.  Where I stop thinking you're my missing part.
I feel like I'm walking on broken glass the more I keep going the worse it hurts I try to stand my ground but the glass cuts deeper and deeper I know my strength I will never give up I won't give in I'm a fight Til I finish fight Til the end I'm
What you never told me  Was what you never said. You were broken inside, Inside you were dead.   You wanted to love me, That one thing is true, You want me to wait, but not forget
Numerous years past, through our eyes, is the founding of our country, yet in perspective, just a few decades.
Once in awhile 
Girls can be very trusting. Girls can also be blinded by the feelings they have towards someone. If that feeling is love,  any girl can get crushed. If you tell a girl she is beautiful, 
The floodgates within her are opened Water gushes from behind her walls, Stampeding like a herd of wild beasts to release the tension within.
I can't describe the feeling in my chest I may be blessed but I'm still feeling stressed I can't find words to say what it feels like But I'll say it's like losing your life 26 months but in the last few weeks
The words I see transparent, I want to believe them but yet I know there outcome. As a plastic bottle, these words you speak, I've heard them all before. These recycled words
My heart was broken       Neraly Choking                  On my own tears I tried to leave       But you held the key                  And after all these years... I fell hard in love
We inherited our fathers hatred letting his words tattoo into our brains and flow onto our tongues every time we were bombarded with something new these words fell from our lips
There is a girl broken with scars The feelings you give her are sharp as a blade Night after night she lies awake And thinks about her heart you break In her eyes you see love In your eyes she finds enmity
I know a boy, who is not a man, but a gentle beast Not much too look at, Yet he managed to catch my eye. Whose eyes have seen life’s greatest joys and her sorrows
Among the mirror I continue to stare
Lay there broken,Arms bent and done,Heart not spoken,Love...there is none.Crippling fall,
When you strip yourself bare before another You are showing them your physical flaws You are undressing who you are underneath all the clothes
Love. I've always wanted love. But a special kind of love. Not that lovey dovey, kiss kiss, let me talk to you every second of the day - love, no.
From the very first breath at fresh life she wasn't there. It didn't occur until I relapsed that I was eight when she came back. And they told me to love her even though she left me for the boys.
Don’t kiss me just because you think I want it. Don’t kiss me because the world says you have to. Don’t kiss me because you feel sorry for me.
I shall not shed a tear when your heart leaves mine I shall not show the fear inside I shall not miss your touch I shall not miss your warmth near I shall not miss your lips upon mine
You don’t want to invest the timeTime is nothing, you lieEverything was beautifulRoses in the garden,Cloudless skiesBut the raging clouds kept coming from your eyesOn that day,
  After the tears have washed away and the world
Please don't tell me you love me today Because I am incapable of returning the sentiment  
A little engine   pushes past all obstacles, seemingly strong.A broken engine   too much burden, falls to ashes at the stop.
  The livened blue tinted with gray, I had no idea what you'd mean to me. Those eyes so bright caused me to stray,
I met a guy on Janurary 21, 2011. Now he wasn't just any guy! He didn't use me or break my heart. In fact He found me, during the hardest time of my life. He didn't care how broken I was,
My heart broke a confusing puzzle But I met you And you liked Puzzles
She imprinted wishful thinking onto fragile skin. Dreamt of last names being shared, and Put him on a pedestal too unworthy.   Her heart too early mornings And his too midnight,
Life is hard, life is tough, it knocks you down, sucks you dry, even when you had enough you can't hide, running will make it even more rough, stand strong, will it out, no matter how hard,
I stumbled upon it without knowing what it was. I pulled it out and saw my name written on it...the hand writting... it looked so familiar yet so diffrent...I opened it and started to read.

Ideas born out of 2amGrown to wrap around my eyesPull them downThey will not shutConstant spike of ideasIn my brain, it hurtsThe throb of thought against boneI am not destined for sleep
Black atmosphere, purple park on fire my flesh desired Black spiked hair with a bruised face stepping, grass crunching, heart race

Memorizing data to spit back out verbatim That’s not learning Banking our self-worth on a letter That’s not learning Staying up so late that the book get’s blurry and our brain gets fuzzy That’s not learning
    Staring at coffee cold and black Looking into her empty house her empty life  with her empty eyes that don't look back   Seeing only shadows
It hurts so much, You kill me with every touch, I put on a mask because I don’t want anyone to worry, Not that anyone’s going to help me in a hurry,
Its true Im shattered
She said it was the most consuming thing, the way he would flow through her, and every word she sang.
Sitting in a room full of people but nobody can hear your scream. Walking down the halls alone as if you were in a horrible dream.
When I look out the window and see the leaves blowing, I wish I could float away from all the mess I've created.  All the pain I have caused, all the stress I need to escape from. My breath is shallow, my heart is aching I cant hold back from the
Explosions break the darkness And we fall from the sky— Blown to bits. Pieces of each of us glitter As they float down, Tossed around by the wind, Ever so gently, Nearing the earth.
Teacher, teacher I'm not sure if you know My mind may be open But my heart remains closed   Teacher, teacher Please, just hear me out There are so many things
I thought you were something special, Not like any other boy, But I guess I thought wrong. I thought I had finally found someone who liked me for me; Someone who wasn't just there to admire my body,
Anger is scarlet blood red.
I remember the city I used to call home,
We are the ones shot down day after day forced to tip-toe around our own shattered remains. Reality surrounds us. Holding us in its painful grasp. Never daring to let us go and give us a chance to breathe.
Your scent just suffocates me, bringing me down into a hole deep and dark. Why would you do this?   Your warm body was once mine, keeping me from freezing at night. Why did you leave?  
You've infected my heart, My soul, Like an ink pen to paper, Whose darkness bleeds all throughout,  Soaking every fiber in shadow, never to be white again. There is no taking back, Erasing, Deleting, Throwing away,  Cutting out. There is no riddin
Sitting inside my porcelain tea cup I open my sewing kit and pull out a needle In the light, it glimmers With a loop at the end Meant to put a string through And pull me along  
The Hardness of her heart the coldness of her hand, i wonder why she ignores me so much.   The sparkle in her eye is only when she crys, confort seems to not be enough.  
He reaches out because he is lost - He is so tired of drowning his sorrows. When instead of compassion he is met with disregad, He finds himself falling even farther.  
Wake up, it’s a normal day. Go to work, the normal way. Down the street and into a building, up the elevator and down into a chair. Typing words and drinking coffee, I hear a man telling how he got mad at his kids the other day.
Broken and torn I look out the window, rain pours down like tears from the sky. I try moving forward but I keep falling down, someone whispers lies in my mind.
Everyone talks about it Why won't you be about it This angry hand that you raiseDoes nothing but appraise It appraises our loveHow worthless it isHow it hurts to stick around
The man in black crawls towards the dusty wind, His thoughts and words swim backwards to the past. Minutes and hours creep shyly to his mind, Ticks and tocks fly, this one slow, this one fast.
I am the ship that has carried pirates and runaways through the saltiest seas just because I'm too kind to let souls sail alone.   I am the one with the treasures Every ruby, emerald and diamond
1) I may be cheating by counting you. Romance doesn't mean much in  the seventh grade. We held hands once during a bus ride, your palms were sweaty. I didn't mind.
if happiness is a state of mind then fantasy is it’s drug                 you’re my pill slowly going down drink it up with water to ease the pain it will only last a while
Who am I? Who am I to look her in the face and say “I’m fine. No, really it’s okay.”   When really I’m screaming inside.
I try to focus Be the student you all want But bad thoughts corrupt 
Get me out of this placeMy heart breaks like glassLet it shatter and it runs a different paceIt's messing with my head, one minute i'm with you now suddenly i'm hereWhen will this end?
My heartbeat is frozen I to you is forgotten The love is cold now, and dead But you are stuck like ice in my head I'm cursed
If I tell you how I feel, You'll laugh at my joke. You'd tell me that I'm stupid, and leave me here alone. Deserted in the desert, Crowded in the streets. I've fallen into your eyes, lies, & shame.
Their legends are not like yours. A true story never to be told, Of the gore behind those closed doors.
Poem: yet and still  •In one piece yet broken •Showing a smile yet crying inside  •In a room full of people yet so alone •I speak yet no one hears me • Laughing and joking yet so quiet and empty inside 
Through these blue eyes I see The destruction if a war scarred land By these cold hands I touch The lips of those that have died With this broken heart I feel
I have ripped apart The heart That you have Trusted in my hands And which you were Probably hoping I’d cherish forever   Forgive me I have found Someone
I want to wrap youInside myBroken dreamsAnd remember whatIt felt like toSleep alongsideSweet lullabies.I want to tell youWhat’s inside mySweet lullabiesAnd remember what
It's so hard for us to operate. We're broken machines. There must be a kink in our wires, or rust in our rings.   Tarnished metal and bent-up parts. You're my tin man and I'm your tin girl.
Birth control.  In school they teach you, Birth control, No condom, no baby, But maybe an std or HIV.  We are young, we are naive. We are virgins, who want a bad boy.
Hips, ribs, and collar bones; Never hurt by sticks or stones. Words made you this way. "I can't stand myself!" you say.   You think they're right, You think you're wrong. "Keep it up,"

We are the lost And forgotten Our emotions turned Dry as cotton ……………………………….. We are the broken
I look in the mirror every day and see myself and ask what am i to everyone else I've been called ugly names that bring to my heart lots of pain sometimes i feel sad and lonely
Deceptions That heart of mines ached My tongue spake My mind deceived My  heart believed My soul admits mistakes conceived The con woman who turned truth into a lie
It’s you You that I am scared of You chose me as your target all because of the way i look Or maybe it’s because I’m better than you Are you mad at the fact that I don’t have to
  Upside down crosses and middle fingers The taste of my last cigarette and rebellion lingers I’m holding his hand in mine and a bottle in the other Just because we make love doesn’t mean he’s my lover
I am a piece Of broken glass With sharp, corroded edges If you touch me You'll bleed, and become connected With all the secrets I try to keep. I am jagged, Dirty, Cold.
You have a degree That says you can tell me If I'm right  Or if I'm wrong. You have a certificate And even when I'm sick of it You possess Carte-Blanche martial law. You say no child
Breaking Branches Falling Leaves Seasons Change Caring Need Rolled down Sleeves Icy eyes Hurting Heart Who Survives?
Count them as they go down. 7, 8, 9, 10. This is taking too long. Where did I put it? Why can't I find it? What did you do with it? Did you hide it from me? I don't see why.
She'll tell you: You're ugly and fat. and guess what- You'll always believe her.
He came today- for the girl; on the 6th floor. She went with him,  peacefully- or so they thought, evidence of him was there there on her arm, was written G/O/O/D/B/Y/E
Let this be your first night of happiness. Let all your fear and troubles dissolve away into the darkness Let this night, be a peaceful moment full of bliss and relaxation
It all happened so fast. A beat of my heart. A stroke of my soul.   I looked down,                   Eyes closed. I sucked in a breath,                   Lungs filled.
Gentle rain pattering outside,streaks of water tricklingdown the pane of glass.Listen.The shrill squeakas her hand slowly sliddown the window.Wishingshe could just claw her way
Baby, You don’t want me close to you. Cause my heart is dead And it will kill yours too.
Make a slice on each armDon't worry it won't do much harmSkips a few mealsIt's not that big of a deal Take a bottle of pillsAnd watch your body lye stillPut a bullet in your headAnd watch the blood pool on the bed
This girl once had a purpose.She strived to be the best.She left it back behind her on the Golden Gate bridge. 
You could see the brokenness of her heart in her lovely green eyes. Hear her cry of help through her soft sweet smile. You could feel the emptiness, the cold lingering sadness of her soul,
Can you feel it? Those minute movements under the skin of your chest? Every tick of the clock becomes a suture, tying together the shattered remains of the past. Sealed with foreward
Like a heat with air puffedFinished hunting can lay down my bowTo many birds,Daddy.  
You are supposed to be here,  You are supposed to care, Not just sitting there watching tear after tear, You are supposed to help, your supposed to mend, Your supposed to be my very best friend. I grow older,
Without a raise of the hand, I stood Knowing that I could be stifled, I know I did not care. Without a raise of the hand, I spoke Meaning no disrespect, but respect was the only matter on my mind.
  whipping winds tear away my guise in the night        your hands weapons of destruction.   twisting tornadoes i watch in dismay as you turn me into shreds and lock me away
Why must happiness be so hard but grief and hatred so great? Why must we learn or except our fate I feel like crying, I feel like dyeing
I’ve dealt with a lot. I’ve been bullied, I’ve been heart broken, I’ve been ignored, I’ve been abandoned, I’ve been invisible, I’ve been a target. They tell me it’s just the
At what point on the 4 dimensional graph on which you are currently residing -the graph labeled ‘life’ on every axis-  do you find yourself no longer climbing, but flattening out into a plateau,
Because it's funy how the person who makes you happiest Is also the person capable of hurting you the most, intentional or unbeknownst And the worst kind of love Is the kind where you love and they love
Hurtful words leave Life-long dreams     Shattered.
Contemplate As Palms flow of desire Unwanted creature destined at the strike of an hour Too little too late to rewrite what's written Futures ruined by an unknown feeling
bound to the thought of tradition, chained to the idea of reality structured in the ways of the ones before you, trapped in the shadows of others  
Crumbling to dust, To nothing at all, Breaking in pieces, A desperate fall.   A yell for help, Begging no more, A battle waged, On a broken heart's shore.   Salty tears,
Wings clipped, hope busted, dreams shattered,  My cage is worn and my clothes are tattered,  I’ve reached the end of my rope, I’ve lost,  This used to be bubbly and warm, now I’m frost, 
All I am is bonesBreakable and bendableBird bonesHollowed out, emptyCreating a superficial beingSupposed to be sturdyBut empty of strengthTrying to flyAll I am is bird bonesEasily broken
Over a year come and gone, long nights that turned into dawn. Hanging on thin threads of hope, that helped me cope a devistating loss long ago. Holding on to someone I used to know.
It hurts so badCause all I wantIs to be loved My heart is breakingAnd I move awayBecause I can't take this... Can I have one more kiss?
I want you   She wants you So there's a decision But yet, no decision If you feel like you need to choose, I’ll help you out Pull out of the race, stop playing your game
I was doing just fine in this cold world Why did you come along? To maybe throw me for a loop? Silly girl I was Why did I not trust myself? Instincts tell me stop, turn around
Tonight I am quiet. I sit alone in my almost clean room—old Coke bottles stand on my shelves, filled with pop tabs, bits of magazines, a testament to my overwhelming need to hold on
Try to accomplish what I did Try  to feel what I felt Try to see what I saw   Try to deal with what you dealt Try to cope with what you inheld Try to care with what you gave  
 In the night, you scream with fright you hold your breath all too tight, for in the night, lurk shadows of the past, you remember of those gruesome nights, you try to fight those scary dreams,
She had the whole world at her feet. She even had friends all over the place But at night she still didn't get any sleep It was as if she was her own enemy Always putting herself down to benefit others
There are cuts on my wrists  because I never thought I'd become this: Another broken heart just one more forgotten kiss.
A broken heart is like a broken dreamA wold left cold as stoneA place of darkness never to be seenI see you walk away as tears fill my eyesThis is a world where love can never survive
He left me half dead you know? He left me a drained girl who had drank from his love for well over a year. He left me hungry for love and affection for comfort and heat.
Traveling the heartless tunnel, where I must defend, Where I must pace slowly, The Raging Wolf snarls in my glittered path. Muting the song of heartbreak with his temper, His seductiveness and lust-
    Three people Two smiles, Two hands And one heart left broken.   The smile you created, All the things you said to me Are just words now?   I’m broken in emotions,
  The skin that bites the cheek A curled brow above the eye An eye for a soar a star in the sky Passion ceases to exist While the beauty never dies   A walk in the park
Should I hold it all in...or should I cry it all out? But I don't want to disappoint them,  I don't want to be given the doubt. They think I'm strong. They think I can do better. But how can I?
There were times when I hungered for what you had.When I begged for you to see me.when it was not my mouth that cried, but my heart.When my spirit bore into yours, and kept a place there,like a hook in your side.  But you, a haughty man.
You're not the one for me You don't even know who you love I don't know why it took me so long to see That the greatest love of all comes from the one above  
one door must close for another to open this is what you all propose the cycle must have broken   closing, closing, closing never to be reopened but on I must keep going,
  Overwhelmed by power great He bowed beneath pressure and his will was bent At last his spirit broke Then in darkness he did dwell Among the creatures of the night
There’s always talk of moving Always the possibility of leaving Packing a bag and never looking back There’s always that glimmer of hope that sparks inside of me, But a skeptical shadow over powers everything,
I ask the Lord to quiet my soul It has awoken from its restless sleep It has caught sight of the ones my heart used to love and it wonders painfully where all the love has gone I sit here comforting it as it cries
She really thought it was real this time She was stubborn that this time, this time he was the one So she danced with words on her tongue  And made him feel like a prince
Do you ever notice, the light that twinkles in my eyes when you talk to me?Do you ever notice, my smile when I hear your laugh?Do you ever notice, how I perk up when you call my name?

I aint’ never been part of a high class society The thoughts that crave within me, Blearing out with animosity Breathing in the fresh-scented Musk, that’s Broken. Calligraphy- The fundamental process;
I miss their cold houseI miss sittinn with them on their couch.I remember that one time we had to kill a mouse I miss their smiling faceseven though there were alcohol tracesthe talk of their adoption cases
Estranged lover; Slaughtered home.  Is the destruction of beauty a predisposed chromosome? 
His existence was unintended, Brought to be by raging hormones and rotten nuptials, And that is the life he lived.
Just when I though it would all get better. You made my depression dissappear. You made everything ok. You healed me, my heart. Up until today, everything was fine. Why did you leave?
will does not force my mask, a loney mood and empty flask, does make my mind go numb, behind this smile that you see, is not a face so carefree, abandon hope of helpful hands,
So many struggle to find reason for their lives So many struggle to go on So many struggle Yet so many miss on the simplest joys in life So many regret their past sins So many live in their failures
Can't you hear it from across the room?She's crouched in the corner...Her pain is screaming, but she never says a word.Can you hear it?Close your eyes and try to listenShe cries for help day and night
A blue and grey feather Floating down the stream Lying on its back Head towards the sky.   A boy, just a few yards beyond Sits by the flowing current, slow Letting out the tears
God, I feel like I'm not knowing And that You're supposed to be showing Me where I'm supposed to go and... I'm so confused. I don't know what to do. But I continue to stay strong and faithful and run to You!
My First Love, My First Heart Break.  Never Thought I Could Love So Hard.  My Heart You Scarred.  You Tore Into.  And I STILL Dont Hate You. Did You Enjoy My Pain,  Did You Like The Sight 
  Am I still here? Can you hear me? Must I still creep around your room? Memories folded up and neatly put away
My secret is worthy. To be guarded like the keep of one-hundred dragons. It lies inside a rotted chest, crueal and wicked and warped though I mean to hide it well beneath its translucent wood. What must be kept I cannot keep.
The bright neon lights glistened and gleamed Dancing and twirling across the black night sky Before they were distorted by the blur As the car went whizzing by The warm summer night is teeming with magic
I watch them fly away My hopless heroes The only ones I've ever known Scortched capes torn to shreds trialing behind them   They don't go to save the day They've lost too many times
I lay in bed thinking of you once again It's like you're filling up my mind With dangerously deadly mines You've implanted in my brain
  Your words taste like caramel in my mouth. But words of wisdom do not exist. Those who think the dangerous thoughts That if, Dribbled out, Would indeed disturb the universe
I wondered how Someone so angelic as you Could have turned out to be The demon that broke my heart And then I remembered That Lucifer too Was once an angel.
Nod. Smile. Nod. Smile. Now....Laugh. There is nothing that is true. Nothing left with truth. He took truth away. What is this possible happiness? When was it all ripped away? It is a facade. The happiness was never possible because of him.
Every war that was ever fought all began with a single thought. They are such powerful things: the start of relationships and flings. One thing leads to another and your thoughts become words.
it's true, I say that the pain stays inside that we don't know where to hide but why? you ask because we're broken because we're lost because we are alone
Family shouldn't be counted by red, thick drops It should be observed by caring thoughts My family is made from love and support The red drops left us when I,we needed them most  
To feel the freedom of the brush Against the flowing canvas, To watch the color mix and twist Full of overflowing vision To create and make a piece of art Made with expression and feeling
Pain is an everyday thing. I wonder if it ever stops .
I wish you were with me right now, so you could see the tears spilling out of my eyes. If you saw me cry, would you change your mind? I wish you could hold me close and whisper that everything will be alright.
I will follow you. Even when the grass Turns to sand, Even if the sand Lasts for days, I will turn my head From the wind And against the grains I will follow you.
Why did you have to leave? Why did you have to be there? Why did he have to take you? Having to see everyone and everything around me so gloomy was horrifying.
It gets so silent sometime that I wonder if God can even hear me, No one to talk to because everyone has their own problems, So to cope I throw my thoughts into a bottle, Tighten it up so no one can get to them.
Summertime, you are so fine. The smell of fireworks on the fourth of July. You make me smile, you make me weak. Schools coming soon, & I'll miss the heat.
Release Sweet God I think I've got it. Remorse Where's my mind I think I've lost it. Relief  All my dreams mix well with drinks. Regret  All my screams are making make me sink.  Repeat
Where in these dark caverns I lie alone, Hidden without the wakefulness pure bright In the shadows, I silently atone, Awaiting the purge of the searing light; But doubtly I conceal thyself of night
Lord, you're with me every step of the way. You call my name and I call You friend. Reach up my hands to You, I give You praise. Every minute. Every second. Of everyday.
Stop the crying The bleeding, shouting— I can’t sleep.   Oily unease bubbles out My knees grow heavy Throat cluttered by horror, undigested   The buildings alight across the city
  After all these years, my feelings for you have only increased. All the many tears and emotions that never ceased.   You were my first. Yes, I know
Society has millions of images designed to represent beauty Yet not one of those images are similar to me. There are thousands of different body shapes and sizes Maybe that's why I struggle when looking for clothes.
The Acacia is a sturdy tree. Its roots run deep. Its beauty astounds. Harmless on the outside; Unknown to man: The toxins within kill at the touch. Run the soul dry. Parch the love.
How could You? Maybe it was all in my head,  believing we were different, that'd we last longer. I see the way You look at her, it crushes me to watch. It's not me you watch.
Some hearts are broken or mended, Others are shattered or torn. Although, it was never intended, because love is eternally sworn. I have cried, and prayed, and pleaded, for this love to hold its ground.
In a world where dark dreams befall The angels cry behind the castle walls His highness, he sits, lost on his throne The queen has fallen, he sits alone He holds her heart in his cold hands
The ring sits on the stand Next to the empty bed She left without a note Without a call.   What did he do so wrong That she left him after this long The two perfect people
She said I’ll love you till you’re worn She said I’m breaking to the bones. The kind of stuff that breaks a home- The tortured cry of a widow’s moan. She said, you can’t believe that love is real
The rods are all broken The curtains are torn The windows are cracked The floorboards are worn   So much time wasted Cleaning out dust You marched in with mud Hate and mistrust  
Starving my body, starving my soulI cannot tell what is my goalEat that today, eat nothing tomorrowMy mother's scale I might have to borrowCheck my weight, look towards the groundOh my God, I gained a pound
I was to young to  deal. Started not to feel. Never took the time to heal. Somehow it didn't feel real.   I was to young to see. Thought it was apart of being me.
softly spoken words of a new tomorrow you wispered just a little enough for me to want more Screaming in my head is just a quite gleam of hope a tiny drop in the pool of dreams
I pray that love sets me free and though im blinded by hate, love overcomes me. I pray that one day I learn to live so that I wont be afraid to die and that there remains many reasons in this world for which I will never have to cry.
The hands won't moveLife is stillCan't you tell we just aren'tWe aren't movingWe aren't breathingWe aren't livingYet we are alive
Maybe I'll start today or tonite Maybe I'll think on a daily Maybe I'll give him what he wants Maybe she'll recognize me Maybe this will be the last time I feel pain Maybe I can do this!
Never did I think you'd be a part of the past, our time together went by a little too fast. What you've now done for this community, is what will forever go down in history. You gave your life to save another,

She sat in her chair across from me Scribbling on a pad of paper that held pieces of my life in a careless pattern “Write,” she said. So simple and stupid As if writing in a journal can change my problems
Heavy breathing. Wrists bleeding. Mind freeing. Heart releasing. Eyes tearing. Body collapsing. Life ending.
To my past love you decided your own fate. You had me hurt and in a uncontrollable state. I had the false reality you were going to stay my mate.
What does it mean to be happy?Is happiness defined by the smile on your face? Is happiness defined by how many times you laugh throughout the day?What does it mean to be happy? Is it the feeling of joy that overcomes you?
It seems like yesterday you were here to stay And now you up and went away No time to put my heart away So it took the full break Shook me like the hatti quake, told me to beat it like a Ao8
I let myself be shaped by others Molded by scorn, hate, and sadness I wanted to be like everyone else I wanted people to like me I wanted them to care But I was a cast-out, a reject
You've changed? You once loved me and called me everyday Now you rarely say my name You've changed? It all started when distance was put between us  Seperated by only a few miles
No one knows just how hard it hurts. I can take the blows, and I can take the hits. My bones can shatter, and my blood may pour. My teeth may chatter I can take being sore
I said it a millions of time cried my heart out believing one day will be that day however I had an shot of reality like no other and for that I can say this was the clearest sign to move on with life itself .
Wounds from my past still sting. I try not to bring myself to that time again. Why can't things just be like when I was a kid? Having no knowledge of anything. Just care-free and dumb.
A fool, a joke. I didn't know what else to expect. I thought he was cool And now everything's been wrecked.
Im played like games adolescents love to win. Victory! You won my heart although cheat codes and guide books helped you through. You became a strategist at the war of my soul.
It was not so It could not be, it never could last Foolish was the girl To this she could love or be loved
Fair Maiden with The Jester As she walked down the steps Her head dizzy with confusion from the scholar His science left her shaken with despair The maiden walked many miles to the town square
Fair Maiden with The Scholar In the castle, built of brick and stone A scholar of science lives and works He has never ventured beyond the walls He would rather not He says that it holds no sound truth
When I found out I liked boys I knew I would be boy crazy Every time I liked one, another one seemed to amaze me Then, when I found about a relationship, it would blaze me
Once I fall down the staircase,I look into the red horizon,wishing only to grabhold of the railing that leads down the staircase of my mind.

As I lay here crying As I lay here sick as can be I feel the tears running along my cheeks They're so warm, they burn My cheeks are burning And I feel tortured I feel like every tear drop that burns
I stand with empty hands, Scars on my wrists, I didn’t know life would hurt like this. Blood flows from an open wound, Tears fall and burn, Don’t get too concerned.

Some days its a couple minutes, other days its hours. My mind races and never rests anywhere but you. All i think about now is you. I remember every moment together perfectly.. who else can say that about you?
Astounded By your lies. Can’t think straight Devouring your promises Entire days burned by what you did. Feeding off my purity Get out of my head. Hating you Is becoming easier.
I need relief release to let it go and be set free I need the pain to fade the confusion to vanish but most of all I need you.
I gave my heart to you, My heart beated for you. My heart would have bled for you, and in the end my heart died because of you. My body fell weak from the pain, The warmth I had from the kindness I showed,
Everything and everyone move forward farther away from me who is stationary never changing never moving forward if i could go forward everything would change for better or worse
A heart broken by one once trusted A heart broken by one once loved A heart broken by once believed in That heart still lays waiting It lays waiting to be fixed Waiting to be made whole

Remember the days when we were in love The times we spent counting stars up above The kisses we shared The love we made Is it really all gone should I have stayed

In the eye of the beholder, love is a powerful thing. It sways you left and right. Creates a language unknown. A language that is both verbal and physical.

I’m done with lying and crying and feeling this way Of laying in the dark, knowing that for my sins I will pay Of pretending for you, that I really want this When really it is our friendship that I miss
I'm sick of this conformity; it's no longer the place for me. I'm sick of pretending to be something I'm not, just so you can feel complete. I'm not happy or sad, about where I now stand.
Did love naught ever come this way for thee? Or did love take captive thou soul to slay? Faults rarely seen in love – blind cannot see. Buds of love’s young spring never dreamt this day.

Chills go down my spine; my hairs stand up on end; my skin sensitive to the touch; my heart alert for any sign of pain. Like every other time, it blinds my eyes from truth, and cripples my mind from reason,
Broken like the keys of an old piano, Fake like all the lies that you've told her, Tattered like the curtains of an old abandoned house, Abused like a stray dog... Broken like a rusty 1969 Chevelle,
I dream a dream so dear and ture. but to see you be in such a mood, make my dream come fade. I want to see you dream A dream I do. but in these darkened halls, I see and hear no dream.
Don’t Give Up On Me Don’t give up on me I’ll lend a hand and meet you halfway We will stand by each other’s side day by day Hold you close and hold you near; please never be afraid to whisper to me your biggest fear
Sitting on these stupid tracks; if the train comes, let it. I know I won't regret it. I'm sick and tired. You don't get it. I try to net it, but you can't strangle bad luck.

They lay with no bed, They lay with no sheet, They stay on the floor, They stay with out heat, They sleep with no dream, They sleep with only fear, They wake with no love, They wake with a tear,
Lost in an empty space craving something to replace the emptiness. I was told there was one, they called it the son and the light. I looked towards the sky, the sun blaze in my eye,

One drink to wash away the pain, Just one more, One sip to cleanse the sorrow, Just one more, One drink to ease the suffering, Just one more, That will come tomorrow.
One mind Incapable of Change Like a paper airplane making the same folds since you've been this old Unable to watch it sore From the fears it'll crash into the floor. You make it seem so sure
How many tears have I cried? How many scars do I hide? Too many. Why doesn't pain go away? Why does it last for days? I don't know.
I was always being swept away by the current, it hit me hard. Crushed my lungs, bruised my skin, bloodied my face and body. I never understood why.
I fell in love one day The day I broke my heart By her beauty, my eyes drew up But my hope fell from the start
Although the tunnel isn't so dark My heart is still empty Soon I will embark on a journey That will take me away, Away from my current darkness It will change my view And lighten my mood

It’s a hard thing to describe It’s so hard to explain Just I can’t help it Feeling this way Just the way you smile The way you sing a song Makes my heart soar A million miles away
A girl pictures herself as someone other than her. A girl who has everything that anyone would be envious of. She feels as though there is no hope for her.

Feeling alone Let down Hurt Misunderstood Unloved Ready to cry at any given moment Just wanna be hugged, and loved , and held , and asked are you ok I cry at the most random moments
To see the one I love, happy, means the world to me Even if that means I've got to set him free I love him But he loves someone else
I will never fall in love for fear of a constantly harrowed heart
Me duele tanto el Corazon Por tanto amar a otra sin que conociera Que en mi mente Solo vive ella y la memoria de su cantar.
We seeked happiness in each other Selfishly obtaining it for ourselves Now all thats left is the detritus The poison in our veins The hatred to this game
Sometimes certain situations are just so hard to deal with, other situations are easy, but the hard ones teach you a lesson in life, weather its for the worst or the better.
The things that you love The things you enjoy The joys of life The trials Tribulations Joys Deaths Triumphs The life you lived as a child The life you're living now

I knew that when I’d fall asleep, I’d only dream of you. And of the Last rose I’d ever get from the man that loved me too. And when the night is over, I wake up and I cry.

Broken street I’m forced to travel as ice tickles porcelain cheek. Crystal leaves forbidden trail now, my traitor heart still beats for thee.

I trudge along the halls hiding behind this mask. Hiding behind the shadow that I always seem to cast. With sad eyes I walk by staring at the floor. People shoving past, things I've learned to ignore.
Any man/woman can say they love someone But only when they find true love Will they be willing to change within themselves Everyone is destined to find the happiness they deserve
That's it. It's over. I crumple, ruined, to the ground. Attempt to hide from prying eyes. Those eyes. Ones I've followed, held on to, Throughout the labyrinth of my life.
To Hold. To Feel. To Write. To Draw. To Move. To Clench. Mine to Own, Yours to Hold. God’s best tool He’s given me. Hands.
Is this what it feels like... to break? It's not as painful as I imagined... I feel so numb. I don't feel anything anymore. Even the hot tears don't exist.
There is a castle underneath the Sea, Under the Moon. Only those who have lost can see it. Only the ones that have felt true sorrow.
She held the pieces in her hands, Broken, bleeding shards of red. They breathed the pulse of broken life, Love, Anger, Hope, and Strife.
It hurts, every whisper Each wayward glance, so close Every moment heard and felt Twisting the shard with each tremor, vibration Icy crystalline glass wedged to deep to pull Oh beating drum in my body and ears
I’m staring into your beautiful eyes, As we sit away from the world, What people say about us is only lies, There’s nothing wrong with me and you.
Come My love My sweet dove I miss you so I look for you above And yet they tell me to say no They say to say no to the love that grows When you left me, left for good I said I was done

She looks his way, A small, gentle smile on her face. A big, beautiful smile is looking back. She laughs, Though she doesn't know why. “What's so funny?” he asks sweetly. “Nothing,” she replies, smiling.
I take a knife And slit my skin, Exposing my heart Reach in And tear it out still beating Its erratic rhythm. I show my exposed story, My deepest truth Only to One Who gives me a reaction
I live in the places in-between as a shadow to the right as a whisper in the night. In fantasy, in dream I lay, as a flicker in the corner of his eye.
On the outside I'm strong But on the inside I'm in Hell I make subtle cries But no one who notices will help

You know when you were little And you had your hand In the cookie hand You turned and almost died of embarrassment When you saw your dad’s face
You know that feeling When you’re empty and alone When there is no one you can turn to Remembering when the sun once shone You used to be able to laugh About nothing at all
What you see is someone Who is so Beautiful but yet so ugly. The wish for her Anger and Hatred in her heart to be Broken is never for-filled. Suicidal thoughts haunt her day after day

It seems ridiculous to me Spectacularly arranged Uniquely designed Strings of that which is hear laced together in particular patterns, so necessary A carnal infusion
Don't give up, my darling With your shriveled bones, Broken skin, By razors touch You are dancing with fairies But don't you know? They have not yet Shown their teeth.
She suffers in silence. Her tears unseen by the human eye, Her screams unheard by the human ear. When she walks into school, it is everything she fears. They call her names and they think it is all fun and games.

Have you ever feel ugly? I want you to know to me you have one of the prettiest, exotic face I have ever seen. Have you ever feel lonely? I want you to know that I am here for you . Have you ever feel unloved ?
Would you stay? Just a little while longer. Must you leave me right now? Would you let me feel your gentle touch Before I can feel it no more. And your beautiful lullaby voice.
I am tired of playing this sick game I don't understand why I always take the blame Sure I don't give people the impression But it sure feels like depression Someone needs to take the pain away
The metal soothes the skin. The red ribbons wrap 'round the wrists, flowing, endless. The waterfalls cascade down ebony cheeks. The laughter echos through the mind. The waterfalls dry. The ribbons end.

I can see the heartache in your eyes someone before me made you want to die I've seen it all so many times I'll try my best but still I'll make you want to cry
A solid heart or a plastic smile? I wonder and ponder on this subject in my class , My teacher distorting history to make plenty cash , I just back and laugh .
For You I have changed my ways I have gone from that nice little girl to someone older in age. For You I have turned my back on all things that sing
What is Love? What is its meaning? Is Love an action? Or is it a feeling? Is Love worth the pain? Is it worth the tears? Will it last a month? Or will it last for years?
Pain in my sight Feeling like there's no more fight I can't sleep through the night With all these tear feel like it ant real My Momma my queen We living in these streets
How does it feel to be let down, lead on, lied to, and hurt How does it feel to be kicked down, stepped on and treated like dirt How does it feel to love someone who doesn't love you back
She was hypnotized by words, taken away by temptation She was one small person in this nation Her thoughts keep her awake at night, the demons take her for a spin Her darkest fantasies were her sin
Stay Strong” they tell you but they don’t seem to understand. You stayed strong for as long as you could And now you’re letting go
Prevailing as it may seem Your words of enmity will not diminish me For behind these misleading tears I am tenacious and will not wear You are feeble and full of remorse And I can conceive why you pierce at hearts
Drowning in the sins and sorrows that I brought upon myself. Tripping over the memories past that I personally colored black. Suffocating from the sense of fear and hatred that I refused to let go.
I am young, I am free, I am looking for what I want to be. Doctor or a lawyer, a teacher or a poet. Humm, what will I be? I won't be a bully for reason you should know,
(poems go here) I stopped at our house last night. With every inch of driveway that I covered I felt a calming familiarity.
Justice and praise to the things you embrace weeping for the moment despising the shame we take on none and shake off the sun to be drenched in sorrow only to be captured by grace
Sometimes we fall, we fall down down down, into the abyss we go, untill we hit the bottom. We hit hard. Adrenaline rushes through veins. A rabbit runs along. “I'm late, I'm late, I'm late.”
(poems go here) This World... This place is so cold and hard It feels like there are boulders on my chest They crush my body
Im going to die soon, why care about living for. Hardships and force is the only time i praise the lord. And they say, "whenever it rains it pours". I kicked misery out and now im showing pain the door.
You sit alone, not forgotten, but not wanted with scratches, stiff buttons, dusty old lens. You remember what it was like they watched the world through Your eyes There are no film, no batteries, or bulb to be found.
Come one! Come all! Come look! Come see! Does anyone want to play the Knife Game with me? Ah you! The girl in the front, with the pretty hair! Come play the Knife Game, if you truly dare!
Always smiling, never does she have a frown Through the good times, and the bad She stands tall and strong It seems like nothing can break her, nothing at all But look deeper, look into her eyes
When you think all is right and nothing can go wrong Life tests you again to see where you are most strong
Life feels empty When you're not there. All the twinkling stars So full of despair Life feels tragic When you're not around, No hope, no happiness, Head facing the ground.
How can they be so completely immersed? This “love” that barely had a chance to start, Is sickening to the deep’st part of my heart. Why was I doomed to have this awful curse?
That day she wasn't doing too well, we could tell. She seemed a little depressed, we said she needed rest. We had no idea what was inside her head, so she did what we all dread. She cut herself and dropped dead.
Tell her you love her. Go ahead. Do it. Tell her ten times a day. A hundred times. Until she believes it. You’ll know because she’ll cry at the idea of losing you.
Have you ever thought? The girl you called fat today in the hallway. She is starving herself. Even though her ribs show and she cans see the bones in her arms. She starves herself.
I was tried of it all The profanity The abuse The lies I told My caring parents I though I couldn’t do anything But when all of the above Came into one I had to do something
You push me down You Kick Me Down You Dig a Hole You Stabbed My Back And push me down Again And Again But what’s the point What’s the problem? I’m I Not good enough
Bandaids swirl around the sugar bowl Brightly colored strips wearing white textures A warm and worn comforter Cocoa and petals inside motivation Salt-flavored showers drain while blossoms begin stretching wide
Could you look me in the eyes? My mistake is easy to repair! Don't treat me so coldly, do not despise Simply because the crack was large.
Fuck love, I’m tired of trying. Feel like I’m dying. A black hole where my heart used to be, Since you took it from me. You ripped it straight from my chest, Made it hurt in the most torturous ways.
Shingles she had accounted sitting for twenty-five Holding onto nothing while her ornaments eat the dust Frost-bitten frigid air whistling on the field Storm-beaten rails singing water-songs -
Do you not see your hurting her from the inside out That soon tears that wish to rain become a sullen drought Misery from the mornings start Till night when the sun departs No wounds visible for the eye to see
At the age of 1, I couldn't remember much. I just knew, that when I turned 5 I had to be tough. I told the teachers,I swear I did I told them everytime I got hit in the head.
Sleeping deeply, always lightly Never sweetly but always nightly. Nightmares haunt me taunting softly Leaking deeply into my reality. Was it a dream or was it real? These wicked thoughts are out to drown me,
I fled crime scene no turning back not even glance Remembering myself when given a second chance My body, mind and soul was laid out on the floor Then I realized this is not exactly what I wished for
I didn’t come here to script up a silly rhyme, Putting together letters of the alphabet and creating a story produced on my own time. I came to speak you a lullaby with all the fixings of my broken past I was a little girl.
