    Lonely Tree

    Sometimes I wished I'd have toys, other years games. But I don't really remember when, I wished for a woman in my bed. Maybe when I was ringing groceries, into a laser eyed counter. Maybe the first time my car got stuck in a snowy patch in winter. But I remember the boughs of...

    I have a few poems but i have had people tell me

    that they aren't poems. This is one of my poems The tears rolling down her face as she makes those deep gashes in her arm. She doesn’t feel anything, she is numb. She just wants the pain to end. For people to understand that cutting is not just a phase Just because she cuts...

    I tell you now, and I've told you then,

    that life is something that doesn't happen again. Live everyday as if it were your last, cause one of these days you'll surly pass. And when that day comes, what happens next? Still sure you've lived your life to the best?
