    We All Have Our Demons

    We can't forget our past no matter how hard we try. But the tears we cry ,can wash away the demons inside. It doesn't take much for our past to return. A sound or a song, and those memories burn. I wish we could forget the thoughts that haunt our soul. So we could look forward...

    My poems in the comments!

    It's really long and I wrote it about my Friend who I was friends with for 8 years until I moved. When I moved he sent me and called me really nasty things. I wrote this poem for school and presented it in front of the whole school.

    This is its currently completed form..I'm not sure if I will edit it in the future though..as something still feels missing..but..not missing. I have lived a thousand lives in your eyes, Painted portraits of a thousand angels In trying to capture you on canvas. I have seen the...

    An ocean of memories of you to whom of

    which i have no recollection. Who are you and who am i? Blind like a child in a dark room crawling towards a life unknown Tenderness more scarce than Lust In cities of Steel ,devoid of trust we travel between now ,before and then until it is time to repeat again.

    If you don't know how to be the best person,

    Embody the worst. Think his thoughts, Walk his path and know his ways. Then soon, you will at last see. That you are everything, and everyone. Can be anyone, for no reason at all. You are not defined by the interpretation You are defined, by the experience.

    The Person I Yearned For Thou walked in the

    room carrying thyself. I thought about thee, is this oneself? The shock when thou art the replacement, But it seems thou art an excitement. Thou art not the person I yearned for, But you don’t give me lots of labor. And thy appearance is breath-taking, And you are worth it to...

    The Ultimate Gift

    My stepson arrived whilst we were away, Oblivious was I on that wonderful day. My husband, he knew, his child would be born, Between son and his wife, emotions were torn. I never found out until much later on, For a whole ten months, the prize I had won. The confession it came...

    Bout Of Darkness

    Will He Be My Reality?

    Lost without a smile, Tears that flowed with the wind, Each night and day, I close my eyes and dream of hope, The shattered emptiness crushed my soul. The cracks in my fragile heart slowly slipped away, I look to the sky as my wrists cry, I find hope in the darkness, The...

    I live in a car that's been burned out for years. The guy that was driving, His bones are still here. I was with him when it happened. We were both drinking beer. We went off a cliff. The fire burned up our tears. I am waiting for judgment. My soul shakes with fear. This life...

    All of our 'children' are fluffy

    Sometimes they'll smile, Sometimes they'll frown. But we all have masks, We put on. Either to hide the pain, or to just act OK.

    Dancing the Pain Away She smiled
