    Flame (Don't Make Fun Please.)

    Before you read my poem you should know it uses symbolism, and it's free verse poetry. Flame By: Myusername22 My flame used to roar at one point. Orange, yellow, and red bursting brightly. Happy I stayed. No worries but to go play. Years past and my flamed has dulled. New...

    By Me, For My Childhood Abuser....

    I was just a child, and you a man, now I'm an adult, look at me if you can. I'm no longer the child, You sought to destroy, the innocent life, you claimed as your toy. now let's see you hurt me, let's see you try, but you can't hurt me, as I'm stronger inside. You stole the child...

    All of our 'children' are fluffy

    and sweet, except for one thing, they have four feet. Little tongues, so tiny and pink, makes us often wonder and think. They put such smiles upon our faces, running and playing in their own little oasis. They've never known such pain or fear, they are ours to...

    Late Night Thoughts. Scars,

    I have an endless amount. Yet you don't see them, So I stopped keeping count. You make my heart have a certain bounce. Before you I felt dead, but now I think I've found life again. Without you, I don't think I'd be here. With you, I'm the happiest person out there. Sounds...

    A Weaker Soul

    { I only cry when it rains } { No one knows that I'm in pain }  { I only laugh when I"m insane } { There is nothing left that I can claim } { My life has been just like a train } { It has wrecked and I'm  to blame } { The cars go by on first and main } { But i am walking...

    Dancing the Pain Away She smiled

    as he walked away, For there was nothing left to say. The words they once exchanged, Were simply rearranged. She began not caring anymore, As she danced alone on the floor. The music that filled her head, Erased the lies that were said. As she danced around the room, The scent...

    The Person I Yearned For Thou walked in the

    Why do some of us have all the luck?

    To work, to play, to love to ****? & still remain mostly unscathed. They maintain a home, a friendship, a love, a family unfazed. While some of us suffer, suffer, suffer. Maybe it's because we don't have a buffer. No loved ones to show us the way. We have to find our own path...

    An ocean of memories of you to whom of

    A venture into the deepest part of the woods.
