FamousIf I become a famous poet,I won't be remembered.[But you will be]
Writing is for the WeakIf I could, I'd writeUs a love poem.It would be full ofDoves and silence,Picnics and laughter,Sunshine and ashes,And other suchBeautiful things.But my fingersAre broken, my dear,And the words areCaught in my mouth,So I have nothingTo give to youBut my heart,A rose,And beat-up tennis shoes.
JealousShe danced in the streetsAnd sang on the subway.People had every rightTo be jealous of her.[For we rarely find a personWho is so alive]
28"If you close your eyes," she told me, "stairs become cliffs and puddles turn into oceans."So I did. I closed my eyes and the world became brighter. With her I would cliff dive and swim to new lands, find Atlantis and the Center of the Earth in the same day. We would have picnics by the Amazon river and watch the sunrise in Australia, and I would dread going to sleep, because that's when I'd finally have to open my eyes, and whenever I did, I'd be in Reality and she wouldn't be there.
UnrequitedShe lived, died, and never knew.
three months to livemaybe less(maybe more)hope has gone with the geese - southward(good thing I'm flying with them)faith has left the building(but you haven't)love is all we have(and that'll be enough)
TalkMy words fall on deaf earsBut maybe that's the point.
SailingShe sailed on the milky way,On a boat made of stardust.Planets danced around herTwirling and jumping.Her mind was far awayIn the clouds of heaven.And somewhere on EarthSomeone called,"Come home, come home."
Innocenceshe knew of a sapphire game cartridge and strawberry suckers to eat while she played. even in the face of death, she continued to taptaptap the A button on her Gameboy, playing in a pixilated world consisting of strange creatures and adventures to be had. and though she could never find the island, that didn't stop her from spending hours sailing on a digital sea, containing animated fish in a 2D world. around her was the smell of hospital and hand sanitizer.after the funeral, she returned to her game.she has yet to find the island.
Missing YouMissing youIt hurts me beyond beliefI cry at night,sleep my only reliefAnd the worst part is that overshadowing my griefIs guiltYou loved me unquestioninglySo loyallyThere whenever I needed youWhere was I when you needed me?I was slamming the door in your faceSaying I don't want youAnd now you're gone and I NEED youI can never make it up to you but if I couldI wouldDo anything to bring you backRealization of what I hadComes too late
his ashesshe keeps his ashesin her kitchen cabinet,in a heavy urnthat she holds sometimes.maybe it is her wayof being close to him,still.she lives alonenow that he's gone.the house feelstoo emptywith only her there.she is withering awayslowlywithout him.she's barely a fragmentof who she was,now that he's gone.she has no reason to live,she says.he was her life,and without him (or his doctor appointments, or his medications, or his chemotherapy)she has nothing to doand no where to go.she sleeps more nowand has less energywhen she wakes, alone.she has no one to talk to.the last few yearshe became her life;she had little time,or will,to make new friends.but now that he'sgoneshe has no one.all alone in her big house.I think shespends her daystalking to his ashes,up in the kitchen cabinet;holding one-sidedconversationswith his heavy urn,so she can feelclose to the man sheloves.
I cried for you.Last night I cried about you.I cried for you.Wanting you.Wishing I was next to you.This love we share is different then most.We survive on true connection.While we yet have to feel each other's touch.But I can't stand this pain of not having you near me.I promise not to leave you & I know you won't leave me.I just can't stand being alone & I know if you were here you would help come save me.After each call.After each text.You'll be there beside me.Now all I can do is imagine. But now I'm afraid.I'm starting to lose faith & hope.It hurts.I won't give up I promise you that, but right now I just don't know.
LonlinessMy heart is empty,There's a hollow in my soul,Never to be filled.
NevermoreBloodless lips, ashen skinYour hand so cold in mineYour image burned into my mindHow I screamed when they tore me awayFrom the body you left behindHow could you leave me behind?You made it worth stayingNow you're resting in a troubled peaceI'm crying, begging 'Take me with you!'Just put me out of my miseryYou come to me in nightmarish dreamsYour voice still echoes hereWhisper sweet things in my earLoving me, haunting meVisions blur with timeHow could you leave me behind?Thoughts of you come flooding to meI am overcome by painI should lie there dead in your placeI now scream your accursed name!Left here soulless in the lovely darknessMy will is not my ownA wicked grin crosses your face; I gotta get out of this placeCan't join you in Hell, can't stay here alone!Thoughts of you come flooding to meI am overcome by painI should lie there dead in your placeI now scream your accursed name!Left here soulless in the lovely darknessMy will is not my ownA wicked grin
My Invisible HeartI gave you my heart,But you never gave me yours.I placed my heart in your hands,And you dropped it.Smashed it.It killed me on the inside,But I wear my mask to protect myself.I kneeled next to my heart,My best friend gave me a needle and thread.I sat for hours fixing what you broke.I finally finish fixing my heart.When my best friend tells me,She is going out with you...My invisible heart broke again and again...
BetrayalI trusted you.I guess I was wrong.I know it was foolish,But we were foolish.We bound in a way unlike any others,And you broke that bond.Just take the knife out of my back,So I can walk away.And maybe,just maybe,Forget about this betrayal.
Just FriendsI watch that pretty, little slutwrap herself around you,but it seems like you don't care.She does whatever she canjust to get your attention,and she knows that we're all watching.She rests her poisonous handon your innocent faceand her fingers pass over your lips.I watch in horroras she slowly puts her face to yoursand you don't try to resist.She whispers in your earso quietly that nobody around youcan hear a word she's saying.She smiles that guilty smile,but you don't reactand I know that you don't want her.You couldn't want her;you're supposed to want me,but you're still not fighting back.She slides your hat off your headand runs her fingers through your hairwhile she keeps that smile.I see your beautiful eyesare scanning over her body,but there's still no reaction.I can't help but lookat her low-cut topand her tiny, little shorts.I hate that pretty, little slutand the way she tries to seduce you-the way she wants to make you melt."Get off me," you su
Love and DeathShe liked her,He liked him.They were fine with it,And all lived happily ever after.Because that's how it goes, right?They sneered at her,They laughed at him,They killed them both,And they all lived happily ever after.Because that's how it goes, right?
