    I exist on the edge of your lips As a ghost of

    a kiss As a veil in your thoughts and dreams Image of my red lips and red hair Is what you remember But no life is behind those thin eyes While the real ones gleamed that colour Like the rest of me Silences, fragmented Shards tearing us apart Or perhaps we were always torn...

    Not Afraid.

    Do not be afraid of life,the pain,the peril and the strife.Do not shrink with fear and dread from the things that lie ahead. Do not be afraid to try-for no goal can be too high.You may fail but don't complain,you can always try again. Do not be afraid to speak,to adventure and to...

    and if we only have tonight,

    would you hold me tight? would you kiss me softly? and tell me you love me? if we only have right now, will you slowly take away my pain? would you show me all I needed to see? would you make me happy?

    She finds solace in her silence Her mind is

    flooded with mistakes Trying to run Trying to escape The crippling fear of the unknown Keeps her from moving on A loveless life With no real hope The calm before the storm. She finds solace in her sadness As the day turns into night Her demons caress her tender heart She’s...

    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...

    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...

    This poem is a repost ( I have a bad habit of

    Will To Fight

    Stalking

    It never rightfully belonged to me But I wanted it nonetheless, So when you were distracted and couldn’t see I took it, I confess. I thought that it might take a while For you to realize your mistake, And though I felt guilty in my guile I held it close, for love’s sake...

    I spend every day awaiting the pain to go away. This came just out of NOWHERE in my mind. No idea why. Was just going to post to "I am not creative" and that pops out. It's how I feel about myself. I am completely plain in every way. My appearance is plain, I have no skills...

    FOR OLD MEN AT THE CHESS TABLE They banned me

    from the park I fed pigeons at every morning. I was too emotionally attached to things that leave with the seasons. They say my rain clouds over-watered the plants and killed them. More time in bed, I thought, but I'm always looking for a reason. So I gave my bread money to the...

    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...

    The Hello To My Good-bye The world,

    TRUTH Most lives are full of struggles As we

    begin each day; We can only hope the path we found Is the one where we should stay. You can’t always judge the path, Simply by its looks. And you can never gain wisdom, Just by what you read in books. So be grateful for experience, Whether good or bad. For we can learn...

    Sometimes I can't stand the stupidity.

    Those peeps don't get my empathy. Is it so hard to get yourself some education? Learn how to respect those without relation. I call it laziness, the craziness you spew, such ignorance. One can't be so arrogant to think they know everything. Someone once said a wise man knows...

    Deeper Stranger.

    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...

    A perfect moisture stirs within the air,

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.
