Hello I am Gatsby,
Great Gatsby you say?
No I'm his cousin,
Just Gatsby okay...
I am just like him,
At least that's what I am told,
If only I could pay for college,
When I was 18 years old.
Do you see my home?
It's... (more »)
So tired of pain
Emotions just repeat again
Living can feel just like my dream
It's so unreal, to me it seems
Everyone here is make believe
Something only I perceive
My life seems like an awful poem
Rhyming because it feels like home... (more »)
s a prisoner in your cold jail cell,
surrounded by grey walls
barred into the claustrophobic cubicle.
I yanked at the cool, metal bars,
my fingers numb,
struggling to hold on,
yet yearning to be free of the restraint I felt;
so captivated.... (more »)
Her body lit up like the festival of lights,
the only things keeping her grounded, unlike the fireworks,
were the pills that she flirted with three times a day,
ten tablets a pop.
They were colorful, like flower petals:
she picked them each... (more »)
I've decided that all scientists do is lie:
According to the laws of physics, if I am attracted to you,
you should be attracted to me, too.
So why is it that gravity is not pulling you closer to me?
Why do you feel so far away?

He was old, but not too old:
he had silver in his hair, a golden heart
I can see him sitting on that hospital bed,
surrounded by white walls and blue curtains,
the beeping of machines ringing every so often,
Thin, wrinkled hands and long... (more »)
I am afraid of climbing mountains
because I fear the height
will tempt someone
to push me off the edge
I think I can make it
up, the whole way
but my body gives in
Even with you;
My knees go weak,
but it is more truthful... (more »)
In a weird way, he was almost too perfect:
the kind of guy you see on tumblr
read stories about, and see in movies.
I felt like I was the star
of my own Hollywood production
when we spoke.
His words danced in my mind
and my heart flirted... (more »)
Maybe it shouldn't matter so much
because it all ends next year, anyway
But I never wanted you to be someone
I had to miss.
The hardest part
is that your strength overpowers me
in this game of tug-of-war,
I cling on to that... (more »)
What do I have to do? To make you understand my point of view. For you to stop being so invested in yourself. Listen to me, not just your own voice. Would you try to make me happy? If it meant for you to put me before you. Because I've been... (more »)
I am functioning on zero gravity.
Like a pendulum I swing.
Weightless I feel at the top.
Until a rough force pulls me to a stop.
And I sit motionless waiting for the unseen.
I go up, but always come down.
Often I hit the ground.
Then the... (more »)
I know things about you,
Things that people don`t expect me to know.
I cherish the days when I find out something new,
Taking on a radiant glow.
I wish that you were like that, too.
If only you knew.
My cheeks flush red,
Trying to... (more »)
Are you pleased with me?
That thought echoes against my mind.
And when I make a mistake,
I feel it every time.
I know you are there.
You wait for me to come.
You have open loving arms.
You help me repent of what I've done wrong.
I... (more »)
The poor children of Gin
were so incredibly thin
but the found a bite
that tasted alright
so now they had something for din
Some people went to the bank
to see the ships which sank
but they fell in
I put on a grin
And they don't... (more »)
