    I knew you for long enough, And all along I ignored you; Me being the least of nice people. I would try to find the "perfect" boy; Always complaining when I didn't, And I couldn't find out Why I was so lonely. As time went by, I learned about what I should want, And I looked for it in boy...

    Inevitably, someone found their way into my heart, As but a few have done in my past. And with each passing one never caring, The protective shields form stronger around my heart; The walls building higher to protect it. I have no choice about this: My past makes me this way, Creating a con...

    She lives in a world made of tinted glass: She can see out, but no one can see in, So no one is able to hurt her. No one knows who she really is, Nor what goes on behind the walls of darkness, But it doesn't worry her. Hiding has always been her defense; Keeping people out ensures he...

    She says to hang in there, That everything will be alright, That there is some hope out there, That I need to hold on tight. She's so strong and confident, While I'm here weak and scared, With a face torn by pain, And all my stab wounds bared. She wipes away my tears, And tells m...

    I am the death, I am the pain, I am the hurt, I am the slain. I could be fragile, I could be weak, I could be sad, I could be bleak. But I fight back, And I stay strong, And I'll be brave, And write this song. The wounds have healed, And scars remain: Scars white and pu...

    A life without love, A life without hope, The life that I lead, As if bound by a rope; Ignored and alone, No cry or a moan, Bearing the pain Through sun and the rain....

    The skyy`s eyes are clouded with weariness; The lights have been dimmed And heavy drapes are pulled across the sky. The sky weeps and cries for the sunny days, And the depression affects everyone like a bad flu. Shattered mirrors are spread across the pavement, Reflecting bad memories ...

    One day I went outside at dark, To see if I could see the sky. I think I saw a tiny spark... Amidst the smoggy, city-lit grey. I saw it fly: a shooting star! A tiny little silver fish. And with eyes shut tight, I made a wish. I wished that: There was no Ebola, That children in Af...

    A flying bird, And the song repeats itself. You care so much, He cares not. A void in time, And the past becomes the future. The double mirror image keeps reflecting, Until you know not what is the truth. An empty note, And the plant grows. How quiet is earth When floating in...

    A frozen heartbeat A space in time The world slows down As your ice blue eyes stare into mine The cold sun dims And the rain freezes The snowflakes rise glittering up around us As your weight presses down on me I forget my past You have become my future The ice reflects the grey of the sky...

    I am a ghost A memory A thought You will never find me For I live in the past Hiding Seeing all Warping the truth Twisting reality Diminishing the hope I am but a whisper in your ear Haunting you An echoing voice Or a creeping mist Never have I been impolite A tortured lie A delightf...

    Your face haunts my dreams Your blue eyes pierce my soul I die at the glimpse of you The mention of your name stops my heart I follow you like a blind lamb after the shepherd I am magnetized to you like the poles are attracted You infest and take over my mind like a disease Polluting and pois...

    A lonely child In breaking dawn Cries unheard; Still life goes on. A bullied girl's Last breath is gone: A suicide; But life goes on. A weed springs up On someone's lawn, Someone kills it And life goes on. A deer followed By her young fawn Is shot and killed; Still lif...

    The girl who never had a love, Who never had true friends to hug, Who couldn't dance and couldn't sing, And sat alone with pen and ink; Being hurt and being used, Bullied, trod on, and abused, Never learning how to trust, Her poems fading under dust; Slowly killed by countless woes...

    Lullaby and good night, Grip your pillow, hold it tight, For in the shadows dark things hide: Things that haven't lived nor died. They're drawn to weakness and to fear, So don't you scream or cry a tear. And before you sleep don't forget to pray, That you'll live to s...

    With blazing eyes she strikes the earth: A warrior in golden-white, With sounds of booming gongs and drums, She rides swiftly into the fight. Her jagged sword sends deadly shards, And wicked claws destroy all life; She craves the sight of destruction, And lives only to cause more strife. ...

    I look around me and I see A world full of misery, With wars and guns and death and blood, And people’s hearts and minds in mud. While people die and hurt and cry, We look at homework and we sigh, While children starve for love and care, We worry all about our hair. We hear of stories ...

    All these crazy voices Talking in my head, Whispering,crying,screaming, Wishing I was dead. All these crazy voices Keeping me awake, Bringing back the memories, The pain and the heartbreak. All these crazy voices Holding in the hurt, Making me remember The bad,the hate,the dirt. Al...

    He swims around in a clear, cold lake, And rides the waves of a rushing tide. He skips on stones in a flowing stream, And rests in pools by the ocean's side. He bares his fangs at a passerby, And reaches out with his chilly claws. He glares at you with his glinting eyes, And foams at t...

    She runs swiftly throughout a forest, And skips under and over logs. She climbs up trees and swings on branches, And startles feeding wild hogs. She breaks into houses in the night, And robs people of all they have. She leaves behind nothing at all, And flees when people come to save. Sh...

    A path into the forest, Though unknown where it leads, I feel this sense of longing, I feel this sort of need. A path into the forest, Mysteriously dark, Without a sound or rustle, No singing of a lark. A path into the forest, Without a trace of life, Trees looming ominously, Silent, ...

    A mixed-up world Of pain and death Of memories and hurt Where all that lives Is the past. A mixed-up world Of blood and fights Of sadness and depression Where all that thrives Is the greed. A mixed-up world Of money and poverty Of hunger and distress Where all that remains Is th...

    Yesterday I went outside, And took a little walk around, I went into a large green forest, And listened to the forest sounds. I lay down on the piney ground, And closed my eyes all the way, I heard all sorts of soothing sounds, Enchanting music all the day. There was the buzz of a cicada...
