    Labels slapped onto things, attached to people. Uneccesary yet we seem to think it is. Labels hold many meaning, can be hurtful; little things with a loud echo. Four eyes,geek, nerd,just to name a few, but do you really know what it's like to be labeled? Labels with...

    I reach out to save us, what little remains. I fall apart still even after we drift. Memories so real, I reach for them; Hope for the comfort I felt then. But I lose my grip,and through my fingers you slip, over and over again in my head the words you said play...

    Memories in a bottle, uncapped. Breaking my walls down; shattered glass. The truth comes out, I know it is over and done. My throat doesn’t burn; I no longer feel the blast. Everyone goes ugh, in terror, and I suppress a laugh. The silent truth be told, I remove the mask. I like what I see,...

    Alone inside my head, I hear voices and taunts. Not what I want to hear, but their voices haunt. The voices won’t leave me alone, so instead they follow me home. Alone in here and no one knows, but me. Each and every day, I hang by an invisible thread. Hoping I hear words of praise instead...

    A broken heart, turned over and over in my hand, promises entwined by his fingers. If only I had known the break would come with time. If only a heart wasn’t as frail as mine. If only the promises weren’t so empty, and meaningless. The tears come, and lightly fall, from the corners, of my e...

    A memory, so strong, yet It’s like a rearview mirror, showing you the way. Shattering by your touch, when you make a wrong move, if only I could reach out, touch a memory of me and you. So sudden, it hits me, just one last glimpse; an open book, for the whole world to read. I touch the memory with...

    My love for him was like Swiss cheese, too many holes and not the best thing for me. There was too much distance between us. Too many things remained a mystery, I thought he knew me. I thought he held the key, to my dreams, but now I know there are bigger, better things. My love for him ag...

    The ground is hard like my heart, but I stand tall. I am strong I don’t want to tell him that he’s wrong about it all. I really need someone to lean on. My heart is empty and cold, My brokenness leaves me vulnerable, scarred by his hands so long ago I just want to feel whole. make am...

    Parts of Me Broken, parts of me scattered, out in the open as open as I was like the closet I kept it in, all feelings hidden from view. My feet gave out weak with worry, because I couldn’t take the pain of losing you. How being broken feels; I am breaking slowly. Parts of me are broke...

    Fake smiles plastered on, I bite my tongue, and smile from ear to ear. I know we don’t see eye to eye, just know my brokenness is inside. I hide it from you, I don’t want you to feel it too. Shatter me I hope one day you’ll be my glue. Shield me, from the pain protect me f...

    A black rose lay on my doorstep. I accept it like a gift. Not knowing it could be my death, knowing he waits for me to decide whether I live as a human or die. The black rose would cause my death and change my eyes, the way I used to live my life. Now I hunt my own kind and kill humans li...

    Your words hit me like a flame, I know it will never be the same. I beg for ice to douse the burn. I wish a mother’s love was real. You scream out that I’ll never learn, and pretend that I don’t care or feel. But love is the emotion that I crave; Our relationship I reach out to ...

    I dig real deep in my heart, cling to a piece of before. Hoping for a friend to reach out, see me for who I am. I am nervous when I walk in, because I’ve been invisible every place I’ve been, to everyone and everything except you. Invisible and it seems to me you’re the on...

    Selfless thoughtful, same sweet boy. Never ending thoughts of you, kind words gently soothe. I’m fragile and complicated, isn’t everyone? So easily read by you. Pieces fall into place, or so I thought. Protect me from injury shield me from harm, but instead you unravel my heart like y...

    Invisible footprints, goes to show how little that I am. I make the littlest impression a small mark in the sand. Then again I have to start, everywhere I go. No one quite knows who I am. When I pack up, start over my footprints covered in snow again. Invisible, to all but my close...

    My eyes look at you unseeing, a memory the mess it makes A memory I can't shake of you. The pain your leaving creates a hole in my chest, something you don't just forget. I should've known you'd be leaving, just like all the rest. My eyes look at you unseeing, my heart un-...
