I See Your Worth
The world knows that there's more
I see what you do not see
That vibrant person of yore
The person you won't be

You tell yourself that you belong
I feel it everytime your soul cries
Caught in a trap you know is wrong
Kept in place...Read More

Ode to self
Wine tears
Flowing through the contours of cheeks
To reach these valleys residing in heart
Let the echo jump into this abyss
Until it reverberates like a suicidal cry
And breaks like a rope 
Adamant on giving second chance to life
Cloud covered skin
Akin to those...Read More

friday thoughts
There's the
In the corner
Strumming on his guitar
Singing of the
Good ol 2000's songs
Shaking his head
At the recent rap reps
The golden eyelet
Etched on
There's the emo girl
In all black
Tapping furiously
On her laptop
Emailing any
That would take her
Her sighs can
Be heard from the
Other side of...Read More

The day was white with cold 
It slipped from heavens grasp 
And tangoed with the wind
As it fell happily down 

Unique in its perfection
A falling star 
Borne in freezing sky
Coming to meet me in person

Wrapped in its beauty
I tried to...Read More

As a little girl i was told
How to dress
How to do my hair
How to behave
I was never traditional
And was constantly torn down
Made me feel more and more
Because of how i wanted to look 
Being mocked
For being myself
Because i was not...Read More

What Do I Do
It's been 5 months 
since the day I passed away
I haven't been doing much since then
Besides that, I've got so much to say

I can't seem to forget about you
despite what I do.
I don't love you anymore
so, what should I do?

Alive, Again
This day is quite strange--
I woke up with a perfect smile
I played a different playlist
Not the usual emo songs, at least. 
I said hello to the robin in her nest home
While I opened the curtains in my room
And let the...Read More

Shattered Wing
Frightened little one,
'N utterly beautiful caterpillar, she was.
Oh, courageously hunted,
Wicked wild flower, she spotted.

Dreaming whole-heartedly,
Beauty with a wing; t'was never granted.

For thy love of beauty was forever wished,
Such patience started to wither.
Poisoned flower thought contained magic,
Eaten with endeavour; life ended...Read More

I loved her voice
I've seen her eyes 100 times
but she never glanced to one of mine
I've thought about her 1000 times 
yet she never had me in her mind 

I'm watching 
my happiness
walking from a mile 
and all I can...Read More

I always think rain clouds
how dark and grey
and when it rains 
it will fade away
the mind doesn't have enough room 
for my gloom
but for the next day
as it rains
the flowers will bloom

Six. That's how many days, then weeks, then months of power but now those six months have turned into six hours, six minutes, six seconds ago.

I've had people confide in me but still mine I won't show.

I think I'm ashamed?

He never knew the girl that wrapped her body in self-pity the nights she spent alone with no one else to warm her, blaming herself for every bad thing in her world.

Premium Member DONT SING
I wanted to sing... I wanted to harmonize,
I wanted to awe you with that high note.
It hurt me, I cried, when I tried...
So badly I wanted to sing.
They said: ‘’don’t sing’’
Those cruel words crushed my everything, my heart, my mind,...Read More

Raven: a poem of morality
With wings as black as night, what death holds sway
By powers strong and ancient, death’s favored creature
Spirits burst to song at the Morrigan’s passing
With dark song filling the air, tulips wilt turning bare
As they pass through the morning air

My anguish is metal heavy and tense
Rusting my heart as I lead by mistake.

Somethings awry in the cogs of my mind
Spinning off-centre they've broke more than once,

My youth was auspicious with seldom regret
The future held prosper now bleeds in my...Read More

You keep breaking my heart without you knowing it
It's like a curse and I seem to get to like it

It pains my heart but it also makes me happy

Of how your smile made my heart swell

But we're 3596 miles apart

Emotions are killers,
You think.
You breathe.
And you scream and you cry and you laugh.
Because Emotions don't change like light switches.

Emotions don't flow in a stream, 
smoothing a connection from one to another.

Emotions are rain drops, 
beating down on you
from the storm of...Read More

Afraid of the Dark
Sleeping with their night lights on
From dawn to dusk, from dusk to dawn
Children learn to fear the dark
Adults learn to numb their hearts
But when you’re grown and all alone
Still the shadows haunt your home
But truth be told; when nights are...Read More
