Roses are red, Violets are blue,
Birds are still chirping and clouds are askew;
The sun is still shining as the flowers renew.
Leaving me breathless reveling the view,
I leisurely watch as though I'm wanted too.
Roses are dry, violets are tilting,
Shadows gloom over the barren and wilting;
I sit there and watch, my happiness jilting.
What once was so vibrant was now turned to grey,
Slowly but surely withering away.
Roses are dead, as violets are too,
Everything in sight now an ungodly hue;
My once a happy life was swallowed by truth.
Wondering why after all this time I've succumb,
I silently apologized as my body went numb.

Crying none stop
A river full of tears
A pain in your heart like a heavy burden over your shou(we've heard you)
In your own funeral crying
Slowly committing suicide
Crying for help but you seem invisible
(we've heard you)
Slowly giving up on life
With nothing but tears in your eyes
You starve happiness
You sleep tears
(we've heard you)
We've heard you cry
We understand your tears
Dancing on the stage of sorrows
Voices whispering suicide
You have nothing but tears
Gave up on life voices in you speaks suicide
Problems higher than the mountain
Your life is a stormy sea
(we've heard you)
Doesn't mean if we don't help you now we didn't hear you
Oh no; we've heard you
You were Loud and clear
We just making plans
Waiting for the right time for the plane to land
(we've heard you)

I cant move.
That's all I want,
will I get it?
No, I wont.
I cant move out of my bed.
I'm stuck in my room.
Help me get out of this.....Funk!
Please, help me?!
That's all that I want, nothing more,
is help finding a way out.
Can I get it?
No!? Why not?
I cant move.
I'm not stuck anymore.
I'm floating, cool!
Wait, that's me on the bed...
why am I bleeding?
I didn't get help, did I?
Although that's all I wanted & nothing more.
I can move now, see?
I'm not stuck anymore.
I can fly too, do you like my wings?
I knew that you would.
I'm free now.
I'm not alone.
Without your help, I found my way home.
your help could have saved me.
Can you hear me?
I'm free....that's all I wanted & nothing more.

I call this
Drastic measures dismantle your mind,
Theres only one way out,
These are thoughts of only your kind,
You see different shades of goodbye, in disfigured designs,
Youe tired of the worlds sick disease,
The pollution of the war that your mind breathes,
And every time the light shines dark is all you see,
You have no mentors or hero's,
So therefore no one is who you think you will be,
Your mentality is what makes you weak,
And once you climb out of the dark,
Knowkedge is what you'll seek,
Until then you'll be society's little freak,
A consistent pound of hammering trying to break a mental blockade,
Confusion brings your heart feelings,
From a high to a low,
The battle within you conquered,
No one recognises, like no one knows,
So whats the use of reaching goals,
So you live alone in a dark dark world,
Where no one understands how you feel,
Or the things you see through mangled eye's,
People dont even realise,
You don't mean some of the things you do,
It's something in your inner self that takes control of you,
Something happens that really helps you,
And then your time comes naturally,
And not by a labled sickness that takes your life away from you.

The world spins as I stand still
Trees grow as I Shrink
Looking in a mirror is like a big Black Hole
With nothing but disastrous toils
My heart is Shattered in tiny, tiny Microscopic pieces
I no longer have a soul
My Hopes and Dreams have all disappeared
My thoughts are lost within a razor blade
Jumping off the San Francisco Bridge or Eiffel Tower has always been a desire
Hanging myself is a priority but living life to the fullest is my biggest enemy
I plan what i want to be carved on my tombstone" REST IN PEACE YOUR NOW FREE FROM THIS DISASTROUS PALACE"My heart is a Dark Paradise
My razor as become my Paintbrush and my skin the Canvas
I have discovered that cutting is my bliss
Sitting on the floor, crying for more as my body screams in pain
Trying to move but my hands are stuck
Trying to get up but i'm restrained
My masterpiece is disturbing yet creative
People think they are just scars but they are a history book based on my life
My art work is all over my body
Watching blood flows feel great
As I laugh in the face of death
I may have a smile on my face but I also have cuts on my wrist
My soul grows cold like a tombstone
Don't ask me to unmask my demons
As my Demons have already won.

You said I fell
too hard too fast
My heart not healed
from my wounded past
The angry words
The cruel remarks
Alone in the dark
Tired of hurting
tired of pain
I never want
to feel again
Can't stop crying
Tears fall like rain
All of my efforts
Always in vain
Will it ever end?
My empty life?
Within my heart
A twisted knife
My tears won't stop
My Heart Won't mend
Always the end
I'll say goodbye
I'll walk away
Can't take this heartache
For one more day
I'll hear your voice
I'll see your face
And fade into darkness
Away from this place
I'll be forgotten
I won't be missed
Gone from this world
I no longer exist

Light as a feather, sensing the wind passing fast
And feeling free from everything at last
Happiness and joy have found their way
And in her soul they’ll forever stay
The long trail of memories passing by
Every word he said and every lie
Everything that was hunting her was gone
Leaving her spirit pure and as white as a swan
All her emotions were confused
To this big mix of feelings she wasn't used
Should she laugh? Should she cry?
Nothing matters anymore when you’re in the sky
But now she’s had enough and wants to stop
And it’s too late because she hit the ground like a tear drop.

I was sad and scared, in the middle of the silence, hanging on a string of blades
that is about to snap, a mirror in front of me, cries beneath me, depression was raging around me.

You are my best friend,
through think and through thin,
and I guess you didn't realize,
that it was a sin,
but I prayed to God,
to make you whole,
and to take you to HEAVEN,
and to save your SOUL,
I know he will,
becaus HE'S a loving GOD,
and HE can do anything, with just a nod.

Because of me is it?
It was all my Fault was it?
I did Everything for you to love me,
I did Everything for you to accept me,
I did it all because I love you
But why?How could you?!
You left and break the Promise,
Which you were suppose to not Break it,
Your words were all a Lie was it?
And This is Just a Game then you`ll end it
I was just a Replacement,My Love
and YOU slap it on my Face like how it hurts
I tried and Tried to Move on,
But it still hurts
You were Mad because of a Worthless Lie,
You were mad just like how someone Died
But My Dear,You don`t need to Prove it on me
`cause I know I`m not the perfect one to thee
And Now may I tell you this,
That my Love is never Ending,
Whenever you hurt me
It just makes me love you more...
It makes me Feel heaven to fall for you,
But your life was in hell when I did too
So now I`m leaving and won`t come back
Because you left me Because of me.

Don’t be surprised if you wake up and I’m gone,
Still lying next to you but no longer there
Body limp, lifeless with a fleeting warmth
A look of peace upon my face.
My life has been a waste, an emptiness I could not fill
Failures that lasted too long, and love that could not be returned
Private moments that stayed in the dark
Haunting me until my last dying breath
To those that cared, worry not for when I am gone
Life will continue, my legacies to carry on
My last wish being that I am forgotten
Forgive me not for my sins I have fought with.
Those looking for answers
Be not despondent, for I was never for here
A waste of being, better left rotten
Forget, forgive, or be left wanting.

The car door slamming shut
I knew what was about to occur
memories flew into my head
scattered like a scrapbook
I start to tear up
running fast towards the
hospital room, she was
My face tear stained
as the world around me
stops. Silence is all I hear
as I say goodbye.

with your private wounds
Can you come out from?
your flesh, and watch
the ribs, becoming
The desiccated dreams,
inhaling the fire,
drinking pain. You have
come full circle.
Can you describe the
journey of dead souls ?
Without tears ? Are you
going to reject the end ?
The ruins are always a beauty.

Not many would pay attention
Even fewer would care
If I went beyond pretension
And did as I dare
If I let go of ambition
And released my tortured soul
No glory or recognition
Playing the undertaker's role
I wish not any sympathy
For I've created my own hell
Look at me with no empathy
Let no tears leave their trail
In days you'll learn
My presence wasn't vital
You'll carry on with no concern
For this friend once suicidal
My hand clasps tight
Around the grip of this gun
At last, I'll be alright
In a world I'm forever done
The taste of cold steel
With my mind on one track
In a few seconds a life surreal
No care to turn back
In memory the laughs we had
The times we would smile
Life wasn't always this bad
But got worse by the mile.

Let me go,
gently, into that sleep
where the noises cannot reach
and lies can not hurt.
let the ground covers me
with all my worries along

Oh my dear
Big sharp knife
Slit my throat
Take my life
Take my hunger
Dry my eyes
Load the gun
Say quick goodbyes
Take the blade
Cut my wrist
Feel the pain
Tighten my fist
Time flys by
Get the rope
Get a chair
Place it right
Once you jump
Don't try to fight
Seeing your life
You remember everything
In your horrible past
The flashing stops
There's no going back

Snap chat anonymity, snap chat animosity at life’s inequality and fragility,
Hash tag helpless, hash tag hate,
Snap chat mediocrity, anesthetize against the allure of failure,
Shiver and quiver or seethe at group judgment or insanity.
Hash tag control, hash tag take charge of your fate,
Snap chat pain, snap chat nothing to gain.
No one understands the neural haywire
Caused by ceding control to another’s desire.
Is it the voice in your head or the taunts on the Internet?
Hash tag who cares, hash tag your death will register as a blip in news affairs.
Time to Instagram the moment of mental torment,
Of seeking redress after losing the game of life to loneliness.
Facebook pretense of happiness
To a virtual audience you wish to impress.
Then plan a grand exit with a gun or a plane,
So that others might finally acknowledge your pain.
In life, you were a psychological leper,
Sinking deeper and deeper into a quagmire of despair.
Are you really that rare?
In death, dragging society into your abyss,
May make us scurry by or stop and finally look at what is amiss.

The wave are turning and I want
To pull you from the tide,
You go under, yet you use
The blue-black water to hide.
What are you hiding from?
There's nothing to fear in this world.
Don't you want to curl up with me,
In love, tangled and furled?
Don't you want to breathe your last,
In a place you feel serene?
Don't you want to watch your family grow,
Your children reach their dreams?
Your conscience, it takes over.
You want to just lie down.
You want to go in peace and quiet,
Where you can't hear a sound.
It's not a choice between life and death,
But a choice within your mind.
You cannot search for who you are,
If you decide to hide.
I look at you, you look at me,
And it's all so surreal.
The worst is holding onto your soul,
But, nothing you can feel.
I know you want to touch the bottom,
And surface to the top.
But you're convinced that there is no way,
You'd ever want to stop.
I know you want to break free,
And swim back onto land.
Even though you tell yourself
That you won't stand a chance.
Don't tell me any differently,
I can see it in your eyes.
You want to live, you want to love,
Do it all before you die.
It's not your time to leave this Earth,
And fly into the sky.
Let's get you dry and take you home,
No sorrys or goodbyes.

I can't remember a time without you.
You've always been here, following one step behind.
I've always known where our path would go.
It's time for you to lead, old friend.
I will follow.

It's hard for me to explain,
how I feel,
these emotions I'm having,
or how to deal,
I can't get over,
what's going on,
and I don't want to believe,
that your really gone,
I keep wishing to see you,
for one last time,
you were so wonderful, caring,
and in your prime,
I would tell you,
"I LOVE YOU", and I need you so,
and that I never, ever,
want you to go.

I'm never gonna make you cry, when you hit me. I'm never gonna make you first in my life. I'm never, ever gonna, make you fear me. I'm never gonna make you feel like your not loved. I'm never ever gonna make you cry out loud. I'm never ever gonna make you feel unwanted in any way. I'm never gonna manipulate you, I'm never gonna make you someone you don't want to be. I'm never ever gonna yell at you, or swear at you or make you go crazy. I'm never gonna make you hurt so bad that you sweat tears. I'm never gonna break your heart or break your soul. I'm never gonna say I love you and not mean it. I'm never gonna make you feel trapped inside. I'm never gonna make you feel like your nothing in life.
Comment: about my poem I wrote,
Don't let any man or woman ever make you
Feel less than because you are who you are
Your somebody that deserves better, your somebody
That deserves to live in this world.

Depression is a deadly disease for even those that are treated
It only takes one night alone for the world around depression to fall apart
If you think that depression is a sign of weakness
Please come into my mind and live for a day
Suicide is often a thought of those who have never truly felt happy
While writing I cry for the secretes inside my mind are enough to die for
So you think the world is peachy and I believe its rocks of lava
Will you remember those who slowly die around you and pretend you didn't know
Love songs bring back memories of days gone by and loves never forgotten
Some songs remind me of those I miss that can only be seen in dreams
Like in the arms of an angel my mom has long since gone
But yet here I cry these tears of pain while her pain no longer exists
So don't ask me if I'm ok for I'm never ok even while smiling
Most comics make others laugh to soothe their pain deeply hidden from you
They beg to laugh with you but inside they're slowly dying
Tonight I am not trying to cry but trying to find a reason to smile
As I live for tomorrow my brain haunts me with visions of the past
Not believing that your sun will always shine on me but burn me like hells fire
No wrecking balls can tear down these walls to free my spirit to fly
I can only shed tears of disasters that have caused this brain to fight for death
So with twelve days from forty four I struggle to find a reason to breathe
I have made videos to be noticed and written poems and stories to be heard
I have helped the stranger find their way home or the sad to find peace within their heart
Still here I sit alone in my mind wishing all this empty space would finally close around me
I ask your forgiveness ahead of time whomever knows me for me
Although my heart may no longer beat for your ears to hear it
Know where ever I may land, heaven or hell, I'm always watching you
I ask that you smile knowing that star above your head is just me flying freely from the pain of being alive

Waking up in the early morning light
To the mellifluous chirps coming from the birds outside the window
It used to be so peaceful to me
But now I wake up and it is like a burden upon my shoulders.
A burden so strong it's like my already aching body is slowly losing the capability it once had
My mind was once filled with so much hope
And now all of this despair is taking over
Depression is like a prison and I'm sentenced
25 to life

I am tired
Tired of smiling
When inside I'm dying
No one sees
No one will understand
That though I'm smiling
I have cuts on my hand
I let them believe
That I am happy as can be
But on the inside I bleed
I never said it
And I never will
But I'm dreaming of hill
The grass so green
The most beautiful thing I've ever seen
Yet all I have on my mind is:
How will it feel to jump off
And fly ?

Grave filled with papers
Illnesses and diseases around
Words and numbers full of pain
Like black plague sinking in to the soul
Every day the same pattern
Every minute same agony
No reasonable escape, no clear path
The loss of control over mind
The stress induced aching inside
Tired of trying tired of fighting
The egsistence, the end seems determined
Can’t escape the feeling of living on the edge
on the borderline of redemption, the imminent escape
Everything and everyone seems temporary, lost in a haze
Life ruled by minutes ticking out, by things gone by
Too much thinking, digging in the past
Present day drowning in a sea of regret
Neglected duties piling up, threatening the future
The unbreakable circle, the same routine
No pleasure to be found, no point to look for.

Wipe your tears you'll be all right
shake it off and smile for once in awhile
trust me honey you'll be alright so shake it off
and don't let go of him through the night
cause honey you'll regret when you let go,
he's one in a million, so is your life and your soul.
So honey shake it off and show your smile it only comes
every once in awhile.

pain in the eyes of angels
crimson tears run down their arms
looking for a reason to live
to become someones reason to breath
marks of shame on their hearts
every scar is a work of art
high and low like a canion of sorrow
ladders climbing up every arm
a symbol of strength never seen
by an outer soul
tears of blood like a never ending rain
tears will forever be stained

I am not like the others
they laughand make fun of me
my eyes painted black by the shining sun
dark in my mind dark in my heart
deep inside i am torn apart
over years of neglect and anomosity
i wished i was a eagle then i would flee
to the highest mountain near the deepest sea
i would hide my sorrow under my wings
and i would no longer be the fool of whom they sing
i am a man full of compassion my love is deeper than a abyss
but my sorrow is deeper than the ocean in front of me
as i dive off the cliff i wonder if i will ever be missed

The great escape, the great last hope,
Something that’s helping to cope.
The obscure plan, too scary to attempt,
The wrong time to feel the harm.
The logic dictates and mind creates.
Reality ruins what soul desires,
Pulling yourself it seems through the fires.
Burning inside with guilty pleasures,
Hiding the last lingering treasures.
The right or wrong measures left for the taking,
To avoid further descent or keep on faking.
Several choices, the ringing voices,
Talking and screaming inside for attention,
Scared and horrified by future intentions.
