    The Stars They Burn Out.

    A man cannot be a king when he has no castle. A bird it cannot fly without its wings. A dog cannot be trained without a master. A song cannot be sung when there's no one there  to sing. The world is always flat in our dreams and nothing is ever what it seams. In the end , the...

    The long road beckons me,

    to sights yet unseen. To summer days fogged by winter haze and lights before my feet. One more yard and I shall rest. Yon sunset calls my soul so onward I walk. One more mile and I'll be done. Look upon that hill, as a woman's shape it tickles my mind. One league more and I'll...

    Would anyone like to know,

    Just how much I go through. It's worse at night. Feelings come over me, and I wish to die. Most nights at least. I'm happy that I'm starting to find peace. If not, I'm afraid I would have to leave. This place we call earth for eternity. Deeply, I am sorry. If not for you, my...

    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...

    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...

    All of our 'children' are fluffy

    My Garden

    Youth camp. It takes me back.

    For some reason, It makes me talk a lot of smack. Maybe it's so no one will get too close, Or maybe it's because my mind will float. I start to become sad, I blame it on no sleep. Often I am glad, When I can escape. I don't trust girls, Not even the slightest. I trust few...

    There was pain behind her eyes,

    Sadness right in the whites, A madness that she only truly confessed at night. Head always aching, from sleep deprivating. Lack of sleep, turned into "sleep is for a weakling." Soon she's skipping out on meals, Doesn't eat a 'meal' for a week. Constant migraines, Become a...

    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.

    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.

    Why do some of us have all the luck?
