for far too long
The walls are too high
The chains too strong
I want to know what it's like to be free
To spread my wings and fly
To feel the cool breeze
I want to know what it's like
To run, walk, or even just crawl
But I never trusted anyone enough
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...
Let me know what you think of this piece
Get Up Again
Hug me and tell me everything is going to be ok
Kidnap me from work and take me far away
'Cuz I hate this state I live in
This constant state of dread
Some days I can hardly force myself
To get up out of bed

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...
Get out of your head
The vibrating baseline
Progressive build and breakdown
I am the flicker of a shadow
Running rampant in your mind
The glimpse of a smile
Slowly spreading across your face
I am the whisper you hear
Your eyes closed for a moment
The tension in your body...
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.
Go to bed, or you'll be a mess.
Shut those eyes, close your mind.
Control your breathing, you'll be fine.
Tears like streams roll down your sides.
Remembering all those feelings,
Your life's a lie.
Heavy breathing, your eyes open wide.
No more sleeping, you'll just die inside...
laid on thee,
Thou already became my enormous glee.
Thy majestic presence which captivates me,
And each person around me, seems to agree.
Thou have enthralled me with thy complete splendor.
I have given thee my highest endeavor.
With infatuation, not one can measure.
we say goodbye to the lonely night. As the sunbeam shines upon your face, the world becomes a brighter place. Yout smile is tender, kind, and sweet, with love that knocks me off my feet. The day is glorious now you're awake, it's amazing the difference one can make. Come take...
But i can't seem to get them out
The truth lies inside of me
I want to tell you about
There's a thousand tears left unshed
Behind these blue eyes
With every harsh word
A part of me dies
My light went out so long ago
How to make it shine again i really don't...
One look from you, I bare my soul
Rarer than you will ever know
Forbidden love, friend or foe
I cannot hide, what I cannot show
Exquisite torture, I hesitate
Led by longing, lust, or fate
But through every pulse, you resonate
Made all the sweeter for the wait
Touch me now with...
What little bit of what's left of me
almost died today.
Those things that mean so much in this world,
I lost along the way.
I met a man as cold as me.
He found what i had lost.
He turned around and gave it back..
He knew just what it cost.
In a world so cold and hard...
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...
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.
as I climb over these mountains that crowd the path that I walk on, wondering hoping praying that the rain will stop and the sun will shine as I reach my predestination while focusing on being great in this nation where so many have died and sacrificed to end segregation yet we...
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,
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...
Somewhere to place a wine glass,
Somewhere to place a head.
Somewhere to lose your eyesight to,
When I’m lying down in your bed
Somewhere to catch the toast crumbs,
Somewhere to rest my book
Somewhere to hold my fella’s eyes
When he has that glazed over look.
She roams the streets
Looking for a victim, hiding from conviction
Sharp claws drag along the road
The eery scraping echoes in the darkness
There's no one there who knows her name
The beast moves slowly with the weight of her shame
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.
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.
You are my life
You are my light
Your so sweet like honey
Your sometimes so sweet, you melt my heart
You make me smile every time i see you
You make me blush every time i see you
You take my breath away
Your always there for me
Your always in my heart
Nothing makes me happier...
These holes you dug to find my heart.
Now I bury my dreams with sand,
But I sink right in and search these skies,
For your cold hand, to take in mine,
That you would help me rise again.
A thousand times you told me then,
That we would live forever.
But what do those words so...
across the page
No meaning to be found
Like thoughts they drift so aimlessly
Cross the sheet on which they are bound
Desperately trying to convey some passion
A scream of pointless sound
Though lacking in form and punctuation
They are true, but are they sound?
Reread his letter multiple times before putting it down.
He never had a reason out of the hoi polloi, but now he did.
Slowly, yet blissfully,
he let it slide onto his skin.
The liquid that kept him alive, is now oozing out from deep within.
Warm and bright.
Pain. There's was no...
The agony in my heart that which confines,
My dear one, departed but thou art present.
He never felt the same, why should I lament?
However, thou art here, my dear beloved
Happiness to my heart, in which thou flooded
Thou might not perceive, thou art truly...
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,
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...
A word and a dream.
A dream of a flightless bird.
The yearning to fly
And the willingness to learn to do so.
I guess that's how dreams are created.
With a word and your ability to take a chance
Like the feather of a land bound bird.
It will soon drift through the wind and learn...
how does true love feel when will true love come my way yes true love is real true love feels amazing true love will find its way to everybody just give true love time to find you once you have true love in your life dont let it go hold on to it forever and always thank God that...
Before you read my poem you should know it uses symbolism, and it's free verse poetry.
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.
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.
The silvery remnants of activity,
Reveals the hidden pathways of snail.
The network, a labyrinth of tunnels,
Leads me close to the working ants’ trail.
A cavern warm and dark beneath hedges,
Stores a visitor who reveals all at night.
With its prickly features it endears me...
Dreams of youth eternal.
The sweetheart of all she touched.
The heady laugh that charmed all men.
The world at her feet she embarked
A journey of such cruel outcome.
Yet how could she have known,
That the end would be so far away?
The night is cold though,
Cecilia turned up...
blinded by desire..
a passion deep.. that once burned through
i never wanted to face your words were untrue
but time has past...
and i see clearly all your decitful ways..
all my heartache and pain..
as i shatter the glass of how you once enslaved my heart..
the red haze of...
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...
Theres a Man with a heart of gold
Does he know this has he been told?
He sees the world so logically
Emotions and feelings he says dont come easily
He has many wise words for people to hear
Those who listen are the ones he holds dear.
The lyrics he writes are his personal game...
and at the centre the power of its wealth.
The force of it all is enough to kill, but from somewhere the boy found his will.
I was protected by a shaft of light, that called my name and restored my sight.
Now I seek storms and look for the lost, I show them the light whatever...
Acrimonious and fragmented is this day
Mislaid and secluded is thy love
From the pitcher of sorrow I drink the liquid of my slow death. It pours through my soul, drenches my inner most anatomy and quiches my thirst for things unlawful and just. It puts out the flames that dance...
Soldiers marched all night
inside the houses families cried
the townspeople were affright
people fled having nowhere to hide
One man spoke to the people as they fled
Crying:"be strong, fight, never give in"
But the people looked at him nothing said
He realized his fate he knew...
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...
