    I have begun to see their dense words In the slump of her shoulders, Eyes resembling tinted glass Instead of stars, The curve of her smile trembling with effort. And still, I see her: Beautiful. A girl who has lived as many years as I can count on both hands, A girl who can’t see any w...

    He awoke to birdsong. Dew on the windows reflecting sun rays into awing spectrums paints the sheets in beauty. A smile graces his lips as the swallows serenade the dreamy morning with songs of high pitched excitement and optimism. He steps onto the balcony to be greeted by the floral b...

    What are those things that go bump in the night? Those hairy scary creatures that fill your dreams with fright… Oh, those are my friends, we go way back. Back to when my mother would keep my closet cracked. One night they just came on in and made themselves at home. I had no fear, just lively...

    You can’t love. Me a stupid girl to think I could have some profound influence over your heart. Ha this isn’t really funny, at all, but it’s kind of like a cruel joke. Ha, I opened up to you, like I have with no one else. Ha, You take it all in, and wish you could reciprocate. Ha,...

    It’s been a long time since I’ve seen you, But even now your smile is warm and vivid In my mind’s eye whenever I close mine. I remember the first time I told you I loved you… You parted those beautiful lips for my favorite smile, And said you loved me too, and I knew that you meant it. ...

    My heart is a secret and it won’t let me forget. Constant pounding in my ears keeps me ever alert. Don’t sleep. Don’t smile. remember that I’m aching. My heart is a liar, telling me to take a chance, everything will be fine… (unless you doubt me.) My heart is a mystery, cry...

    It’s hard loving someone You have to miss all the time But I know I would rather miss you Than spend my time with someone else And sometimes I can ease it a little If I just lie in my bed Close my eyes And pretend you’re beside me Like if I wanted to I could wake you up And you would...

    I may not know who I am, but I know who I'm not. I am not a doormat letting you step on my face to get where you're going. I am not a punching bag staying in play while you take your aggression out on me. I am not a victim shouting woe is me at the world because of what I&#...

    Who am I? You'd think having been myself most of me life, I would know better than anyone who I am. But I don't. Who am I? Maybe I'm a book waiting to be read. Or maybe I'm still being written. Perhaps I'm a muddy orchid, delicate and beautiful, hiding under w...

    You want me to be something I’m not. Then you tell me you love me the way I am, but that’s not me, I’m not who you want me to be. I’m pretending and hoping this shell will make you happy. I’ve never felt right in my own skin, but somehow I think you knew that; you used that, to ma...

    Now I remember why it didn’t work out: ‘Cause you’re head over heels in love with yourself. I was always second; your ego comes first. I don’t know whether to laugh, or acknowledge the hurt. Hasn’t anybody told you that secrets don’t make friends? Especially the ones yo...

    I don’t have dreams I have nightmares. Afraid to sleep, I lie awake and stare at the ceiling My tired mind reeling Tangling all the thoughts I’ve ever thought, or ever feared My dry eyes burn but I can’t blink I can’t move I’m on the brink Of losing my mind I’...

    In my heart every second or so there is silence. Sometimes, I can prolong the silence by holding my breath and waiting. But even then, between silences, there is a beat. Pounding then silence. Pounding then silence. A constant throbbing in my chest. A rhythm, like a song ...

    Be careful with your words when you’re throwing them around, spitting them at everyone who dares to make a sound. You can cry with the best of them and when it fails you fight and scream but I see through your desperate show the lies you thought I would believe. Think hard, keep your...

    I sat at my desk in English class, just reading a book, like always. No one really talks to me, but I don’t care. I have all the friends I need in the books I read. I laugh with them. I cry with them. Sometimes, I even talk to them, and pretend the talk back. Maybe they will someday. Looking up...

    Once I dreamed The word was red Even the stars Above my head The rain, it poured Much like blood And the wet red grass Covered damp red mud I saw a boy Across the way With nice red clothes And a sweet red face I smiled wide With blushing cheeks At the soft red eyes Looking back at me...

    Tonight I'll fall asleep to thoughts of you With the hope that while I'm dreaming, You're dreaming of me too With sleep there comes a piece of mind That I can't find in my real life 'Cause the life that I am leading I'm not living without you Chorus: Don�...
