    I will never be good enough for you. Slowly, I count down the numbers one by one. You can’t deny it; you know it’s true. I count the numbers down until there’s none. You want me to give up and say “I’m done.” I look at the letter the numbers made. Do you want me to leave and jus...

    Sometimes I sit and watch my family. Wondering… Do I belong? Or was I somehow chosen? Picked… From a group of several others. Did they see something special in me, That I do not? Or worse yet, Was I simply thrust on them? Not by their will. I was somehow a difficult Situation f...

    I am so unforgiving. I cannot forgive myself. If you hurt me, I’ll get over it. If I hurt myself, I’m reminded again of How weak I am. How much stronger I could be if I Just let the past go. I know I look back Far too often. But I’m so afraid. Something is following me...

    Images of my children dance in my mind, Before my eyes, Their laughter echoes through my skull, Tickles my ears. Not my children by blood, Or friends or compassion. They are not flesh and are not breathing, Yet somehow the steady rhythm of their exhales, Reach me. Reach for me. Sl...

    Tessa says she felt a demon in the church yesterday. Apparently I’m not the only one who can feel them. Perhaps I’m not crazy after all, but that is debatable. While walking through the church to get to the classroom used for science, I noticed something. Or perhaps something noticed me. Eit...

    I wish he would hit me. I pray, that someday, He'll leave me with scars, Be the cause of my bleeding, Of my painful cries. I wish he would smack me, Across the face, Leave a bruise, A swollen jaw. I wish he would make me scream out in pain, Beg for mercy. I wish he would just hit...

    I've never believed in love. Never found it possible, Never found it satisfying, Perhaps I was too naïve, Too confused, Too scared. Or perhaps all three. But things are different now, I've found something wild, Untamed and Undefeated. I am unsure when I stumbled upon i...

    “I Was” Only a bottle of pills And a rusty razorblade Before you took them away. “You Were” Waiting patiently, Your friendship outstretched, Maybe you knew, How much I needed you. You were there, Always there, Talking to me with your eyes. Waiting. “We Are” Innocent ...

    She gave him her heart. He decided it was time to part. The tears came. They fell like raindrops, And when it finally stops, She remains standing. Times moved on, To a new and perfect dawn, Though her spirit was torn, By beautiful roses with sharp thorns. Yet she remains standing. Even ...

    I hate the way you make me feel beautiful. Wanted, and cared for. It isn't the kind of love I want. The love I need. Strong and brave and true. It isn't you. The memories you locked into my past, The things you put me through. This isn't the best for me. Perhaps even love...

    When I look at you, There's a combination of, Love and tears and joy. Of the torn, the unexplored. When I look at you, My feeling isn't real. Isn't true And isn't sure. Is it something that I've done? Or something that I haven't? Is there something I c...

    I swayed the hammock back and forth, Remembered all the good times, As a small white moth floated, Down from the green canvas, Sometimes it’s hard to believe this, But Mommy, I grew up. From the day of my first kiss, To that moment in Iraq, Fearing the attack, It made me open my eye...

    I hate the ocean that separates us. But we cannot let water defeat this. I think of you often, and talk to you as a friend in flesh. Sometimes I believe you are merely a figment of my imagination. Simply too good to be true. You are in my mind, my soul, spirit, heart. You guard me; protect m...

    A moment of Silence, that says it all. The moment of peace. The moment of strength. The moment of victory. Of love. Of smiles. Of hope. The moment of tears. The moment of words unspoken, but understood. A moment can change a life. A life like mine. A life like yours. One moment, he&#...

    You think you know my soul, What I'm thinking, what I'm feeling, who I am. But how is this even possible? If to even myself, It is not known. You think you know my soul, But you do not. You shall not. I will not let you close enough, To see something that is so "me". ...

    I want to breathe. I feel trapped, I’m in a box, a glass box. It keeps getting smaller and smaller. Can’t breathe, The box is airtight. Smaller, tighter, running out of air, Tears come, but they don’t fall. They are hot and burning. Break free…? I’ve tried. Impossible, Unless...

    I told you today. I told you. I can’t believe it. My biggest secret, I told you. I have spent years building up my wall of protection, And then met you, Slowly, I could feel you lifting me out of the pit I had fallen into. Nothing made sense until my eyes were opened. I could see the world...

    You told me you loved me today. What is love? It cannot be the butterflies in your stomach when you talk to me. It cannot be the quick beating of your heart when we touch. It cannot be the urge you have to kiss me. Love is like an illness. All those are symptoms. Love is catchy. Similar to a...

    Your arms, perfect and strong, Your arms, embracing me, Guiding me through the heartache, Nothing else seems to matter, But you and me, The sounds, Sounds of hurt, The sounds have hands, Reaching out for me, Trying to drag me back to where I was, Who I was, But you hold me close, And neve...

    Can’t breathe, Mercy, please, When will they see? Where is salvation? There is no love, no victory. I do not feel; I do not see. Thus, it must not exist. Purple lips, Heavy breathing, Pulling out the knife, I am ashamed. No one must see. Defeated, They will inquire; I will lie. Where ...

    I know I have problems. I’m so scared, Yet so peaceful, I don’t know if this is possible. I want to scream until my throat bleeds. I want answers. I want to obey. Something is behind me, Lurking, patiently waiting to pounce, I am ready for it to take me. To break me, Because I know it...

    I can’t take it away. But I promise, I will be the one, To stand, When you can’t, To cry with you, To hold your hand, I can’t make it go away. I would if I could. Through the pain, The hurt, the tears, I will be here. I can’t change it, Prevent it, Mold it or form it, In...

    How could He allow this? This hatred, this pain, The constant desire to destroy Love the enemy that I cannot see? But I feel her. The effects of her, Her influence on the world, Innocent people being forced to express her, To except defeat, How can I love her? Complete suffering. Po...
