    What is beauty? How can it be defined By the

    amount of makeup on your face? Or the number of your waist line? Beauty should be from the inside out Everything has beauty Everyone should embrace it But its all in how you take to it If you dont think your beautiful than fine That problem is yours, not mine Im just here to say...

    I stare at the birds in the sky.

    trying to see if they can tell me why. I no longer feel like I'm alive. like tonight I know I'm going to die. so I lay on this couch and I cry. is this life I'm living all a lie? there's this fear in my heart that won't go. and as much as I try,it says no. I guess it don't...

    Not The End Of Me

    I have let the light go,But not let the dark in,The pain from withing spreading my fears,You and I,Standing here alone,We are like each other,The pain consuming me,This world is nothing but a dream,A peace of a shattered memory,Here we go,The secrets we never shared,Each time we...

    And all I seem to think of is you,

    and you're breaking your promises, and sorry is all I can think, and all I need is to hear your voice again

    You were forbidden. With a taste of your mouth,

    you were poison. Your eyes carried a strong venom that pierced into mine, you were the soldier in the darkest of wars. A secret whisper in my ear, I was engulfed in your mystery. Our bodies tense, our lips locked, our souls entwined. But our demons at battle. Battling each other...

    Mosaic

    Broken pieces, shattered all around We heard the sound, when it all hit the ground Torn pages, in the book of my life In the pain and strife, seems like a losing fight Empty spaces, covered in clutter My heart skips paces, and my words come in stutters I see the places, where the...

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...

    '' J '' I don't know you,

    I don't know the way you smile, the echoes of your laughter, at the corner of my ears - reasoning like old vanishing memories. I don't know the way your touch feels, the way the tip of your fingers looses themselves on my body - looking for somewhere to hide, the way they...

    Pain In These Eyes

    When you look into someone's eyes, you can see everything. You see emotions and their journey. Their heartbreaks and their fears. Their memories, maybe even eternity. Now, look into my eyes, And tell me what you see. Can you see the darkness, That lives deep within me? Can you...

    Real Pain

    You are lost In faded colours of Summer's smile Memory. The world we had now locks me out I tear and strain in desperate style You drift away, I scream and shout My blood dries in the vein True love just means real pain. You are lost Until moonbeams send you from the skies To cut...

    Poetry is how we say to the world,

    and to each other, "I am here." I talk about poetry as a way to document the world and our common experiences, to say what needs to be said in a direct, powerful and beautiful way.
