At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

A poem is never finished, only abandoned.

Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.


Thick eyeliner to hide my eyes
so that no one can see
the tears I cry.
A broken heart and endless pain...
Walking to your house in the rain.
I knock on the door,
but no one is home.
I knew you would
leave me all alone.
I remember your smile,
once so bright...
Now the very thought of you
fills me with fright.
What use to be friendship
turned to love...
But then it turned
to war and blood.
Brown eyes that use to sparkle
seem dark and dull,
as if made of charcoal.
Now there is a knife in my back,
and a hole in my heart,
and blood on the wall
like Gothic art.
Old pictures of happy couples
now just seem like thought bubbles.
I lay here in my casket.
I've died of a broken heart.
Once strong love has fallen apart.

This piece is about my relationship with my former best friend. He found out about my personal battles and totally ditched me... He acted like he never even knew e.

Thank you. Some of the lines of this poem I had to change because they were self-endangering referrences. But the poem is better this way. I will check out some of your stuff. :D
