    In the end, I became rather fond of my situation, although I would never admit it. It was a contribution towards the person I am now, and I wasn't ready to let go of it. It held memories both good and bad, and each of them were so different and in such sharp contrast that I couldn't help but laugh...

    Someone come help me 'Cause I'm so damn confused; I'm fed up of hurting And my heart being used. Someone come find me 'Cause I'm always so lost; Being a loner Has a sadly high cost. Someone come love me 'Cause no one else will; Feeling this empty Has a strength that could kill. Some...

    You tell me to try harder, But you don't tell me how; If you tell me to do something, I must do it right now. It's not as simple as it sounds, It's not as easy as it might seem, I just need some help here, But you're on a different team. You treat this like a war, As if I dropped a bomb...

    You, Life, what have you done to me? You've taken away everything that could have ever made me free. Half my life was spent locked away, And the other half was filled with pain each day. You gave me a family, but you made them not care; I had a heart once, but you made it tear. You kept me a...

    Dear World, What did I do to deserve this life? What have I done that is so wrong? Did I do something in another life That I can't do anything about? Dear World, Look at what humanity has done to you. We've taken every bit of beauty And destroyed it, Ruining it for our future children. ...

    Why is no one listening? Can't you hear my cries? You say you're understanding, But you're just consumed by lies. What have a done to wrong you? Why do you treat me this way? I've almost given up trying; I'm dying every day. Why are you so ignoring? Can't you see my pain? The sun is ne...

    I look before you, dark and bare, I fix you with a daring stare. Your hands, they shake, while reaching for chalk, And all around is silence; no talk. Your hand reaches up so painfully slow, And the chalk screeches with dread and woe. The words form carefully on my face: A perfect white, a...

    The sky looks down with a faded, worn out face, It's eyes stinging and crying from the gases and poisons. The grounds choking, muffled cries of pain Are drowned out my screams of agony from the trees, As their roots are burned by toxic, invisible substances. Everywhere I turn, creatures and p...

    Lullaby and good night; Go to sleep, but please don't cry, And in your dreams I hope you find A world of a better kind. Close your eyes and float away And leave behind the hurt of day. Sleep deeply and don't awake Nor troubled scream or whimper make. And please don't stir or shed a tear O...

    I love summer, but I write more about winter; I love laughing, yet I spend more time crying; I love sunshine, but it's always raining; I love living, yet I seem to be dying. Where has the hope and happiness gone? There's life, but it's all dull and brown. They say humanity's evolving, But I...

    After a long day of silence and endless waiting, The last bell rings; I am released from my prison. I rush to my locker, and in fifteen seconds, The exit door welcomes my eyes. A quick push and the afternoon light blinds me; I'm free! I start the three minute walk him, Breathing in the refre...

    Someday there will be hope, Someday there will be life, Someday I will be strong, Someday I might be loved, Someday I will save myself, Someday I will stop hurting, Someday I won't need to write, Someday someone will understand, Someday I will get away, Someday it won't be my imagination,...

    Why are you crying? Why are you sitting there alone? Why are you shaking? Why are your eyes pleading? Why couldn't you sleep last night? Why are you doing badly in school? Why can't you trust anyone? What is that mask you're holding? Why do you wear it all day? Why do people hate you so m...

    Head down, eyes open. Mouth closed, ears listening. Face straight, calm breathing. Voice gone, heart screaming. Eyes dry, throat swelling. Skies dark, hate flowing. Blood black, will fighting. Mind lost, hope flying. Skies blue, sun peeking. Trees tall, birds singing. Moss soft, hands fe...

    I stand on the warm rocks overlooking the water. The sun peeks through the trees, Casting a golden green onto the sky-reflecting water. On the wave-rippled, sandy bottom of the pond, Light combines with water to form shining, changing patterns: The untamed electricity and energy of nature. T...

    Call me ugly, And I'll flip my hair; Say I'm stupid, But I won't care. Call me creepy, And I'll say I know; Say I suck, And I'll say you blow. But call me beautiful, And I'd probably cry; Say you love me, And I might possibly fly....

    I am terrified of the night, But not for the reasons you might think. I actually love the darkness; The sense of not knowing where I am, And that the blackness conceals my thoughts and feelings. No, I am afraid of the night Because that is when my mind comes alive. Night is the only time I ...

    I could have been 3. I should have been 3. The first letter of my name is E which is 3 backwards; My birth month is 3; My birth day is 3; Both numbers of my birth year square rooted equal 3; I have 3 older brothers; I have 3 younger brothers; I was premature by 3 weeks; My favourite colou...

    The hurt of loneliness, The sting of pain, The agony of rejection, The chill of the rain, The ache of emptiness, The fear of "alone", The hurt of losing, Or the cold of a stone Is nothing compared to the pain that I feel; The hurt and the anguish is stronger than steel. I thought it was ...

    It's the hardest of questions to answer, Yet the easiest one to ask; It's the reason you keep on living, Yet the reason you wear that mask. It's the strangest of all the problems That trouble a person's mind; It has millions of different answers, But they're impossible to find. It's the re...

    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...
