I Wrote a Poem

    I still remember the dark dirty floor of the

    toy shed in the backyard. The pain as every piece of clothing I had on was getting torn off in fast motions. The hand covering my mouth as I screamed for someone to help me. The help never came. As I screamed with the sweaty hand over my mouth I thought that this was it, I was...

    Childhood Dreams We dream of growing up.

    How were so eager to have independence and freedom. But nobody told us freedom had a price . How our  innocence escape and our demons come out to play. When we were young we were so naive, sheltered like a newborn baby. We wanted to grow up so fast and be just like big bro or...

    Poem I wrote about distracting yourself from

    what is actually wrong: Something was very wrong I put in the laundry like I always did. It was a dark wash. Separate out the lights. Put the clothes in the machine, pour the detergent into the cap until it hits one... two... three... Put the soap in and close the top. Set...

    Some days are like a week in paradise,

    you say so many things using your eyes. The look of anger never abandons your face, my discreet side glances always meet your gaze. Once in a blue moon I see you smile, 'tis so shy and sweet that I end up dropping my file. The world was a great place to be in until I knew you...

    Lost soul You pass me on the street

    and out eyes briefly meet. You hold the door open for me as I enter behind you. I say thanks, but you have no idea that my mind is blank. In the elevator you crack a joke, I flash a smile, you have no idea that my heart is in denial. You ask me how my day was and I say fine...

    Rejected

    You'll never know the affect of your disappearing act, What you did was wrong and that's a fact. You left me barren and confused, Feeling like I messed up instead of you. This seems to be typical with guys of your kind, To use a girl and **** with her mind.

    Romance In a Hopeless World

    And with the world outside So black and lifeless. We do nothing but watch As life passes us by. Content in each others arms, We lie. Not a word is whispered, As your lips meet mine.

    memories replayed. I wonder what you think when you look at me, Do you feel happy? Sad? Lonely? Guilty? Does it feel like you've been set free? I don't blame you, You see everyone leaves. But I thought you were different, I thought you would stay with me. Rest assured my...

    Beautiful. One of the many things you called me.

    My eyes had a twinkle no camera could capture - you said, My smile you enclosed in a wrapper - you said. Beautiful. Something which you used to call me. My hair, my eyes, The moments in why I cry. But I am not beautiful or pretty or anything you called me. I am not any of...

    If you really wanna hear me scream, Then cover me in gasoline, Set me alight with the match of the dead, Watch as the flames burn a hole in my head. Come smell my weeping heart, Lift it high and tear it apart, For nothing can hurt as much, As not feeling your tender...

    The Imprint

    A paw fits into another like a jigsaw fits together. Bonded with the force of love, It's unbreakable, invincible and unconditional. They join at the heart, In a world of insanity, Where the only thing that exsists is the love between them. A full moon glows and the stars twinkle...

    I held my baby in my arms,

    But never heard him breathe. I took his tiny hand in mine, But knew he had to leave. I saw him enter this cruel world, But never saw him grow. I'll never see his face again, It's so sad to watch him go.
