    The day I discovered B.W.S., I had cried all day, was under stress. I tried to cope, to do my best. But was hindered by my B.W.S. It isn't easy to make it through, To see things that remind me so easily of you. It's not easy to realize I meant nothing at all, Just an emotionless ...

    They always said to be happy, wear a smile once in a while. I do. They say just take a step back, breathe. I did. They say just be yourself, everyone will love you. I try. They say love yourself, be true to yourself, don't let others opinions sway you from your own. I can't....

    If evil was a corporation, you'd be the CEO. The devil as your understudy- inevitably so. Destruction of every dream and wish, maiming of each heart and soul; You don't mind who's next in line- as long as they're vulnerable. With the devil as your understudy, Bin Ladin...

    Torn clothes, bare feet Walking up and down the street. Little food for five to eat; Torn clothes, Bare feet. With hopes of more than just one penny; Nickels, dimes- they don't have any. One side item a week from Denny's; With hopes of more than just a penny. Mommy said, "...

    I’m torn between the two- my boyfriend, my best friend. Both feeling crazy emotions for me. But I’m beyond confused. Sometimes I feel like my boyfriend, or supposed boyfriend Wants to control my every move, when we can hang out, what I say. I have to change myself to be around him- act older...

    Sometimes our Northern Star shining oh so bright, Shining in every single sky in every single night Fades away to the darkness, taking away your light And will eventually take you somewhere else until your world is right. Sometimes you think your Northern star you stare at up above Has put yo...

    My thoughts. They control me. Overpower me. I try to smile. But then there you are again, In my mind. I try to get away. Just leave. But whenever I blink. Dream. Sleep. There you are again. Flashbacks. Nightmares. Story of my life. Hiding? Impossible. There’s just No way. Can’t escape....

    All I Want Is You, Just You, Only You. I See Your Face, Your Smile, And All I Can Think Of Is That You’re “Mine.” And I’m “Yours.” And That Makes Me So Happy- To Have Your Heart- Metaphorically Speaking. Of Course You Have Your Own Heart Deep Within. But The Fact Is, A Tin...

    How many times do I have to say That I’m scared of living day to day? I’m horrified, terrified, cry at night. Afraid to see your face- a horrible fright. But what can I do? What can I say- to keep you away? When your metaphorical sword rips my heart each day? How can I remain strong when...

    Just be yourself, just be yourself, Love you for you and nothing else. The rainbow always comes after the storm. Make your heart bigger than the world, Your love bigger than your mind. Be the change we need in this world, For the most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen nor tou...

    “Age is just a number,” My mom always believed. “Love cannot be measured” By the years you were conceived. I thought she was right, I thought this was true. I guess this all changed When I laid eyes on you. The boyfriends of my life, I’ve only had two. But you seem to be so diff...

    To write the thoughts in my head, Of every flowing motion. Of all ideas, words of advice, Every dream and notion. To tell the world how I feel, How my heart bleeds so red, To tell of goals and aspirations, Or of nightmares instead. To tell of all my haunted days, Where you follow me close ...

    Sometimes I want to get away, Just run. Farther than I ever have before, Embracing nature as we are supposed to know it. That is a lie, For we don’t. So many people of other generations Traveled, walked about the countryside, Envisioning mountains in the distance And wondering if they wer...

    Dear ex-friend, Half the time I want to thank you, And then the other half, I want to shove you away from me And give a hearty laugh. I want to get you away from me But that I cannot do. You say you’re sorry again and again. I believe it isn’t true. You dated him while he dated me? And...

    Your smile makes her smile, Your laugh makes her laugh, And while her heart’s on trial... You are her other half!? The judge pounds the gavel, The jury’s verdict is in. Her heart begins to travel To your flawless grin. Your dreams make her dream Your cheerfulness makes her cheer. Eve...

    Your cover on your head, your ribbons on your chest. Your medals clanging with every step, though your smile is the best. Your mirror-like shoes, reflecting my eyeshadow and blush, Just like your cheeks, so red, so lush. A red stripe running down your navy trousers. A sleek haircut that makes ...

    Some believe love is a rainbow that never loses glow. I believe love- it is a flower, it’s petals slowly grow. It’s the raindrops upon your windowsill Falling gently- remaining still. It’s the dream afraid of dying, The eyes afraid of crying. It’s the heart that’s deep within you An...

    Not good enough, not good enough- the words run through my head. I cannot change the things you did, nor delete the things you said. Flashbacks take over me, my conscious bleeding red. My dreams, my goals, my heart and soul- surely they are dead. I hurts me when I go to sleep because the light...

    I close my eyes and close them tight, Hoping I can see you tonight. Eyelashes batting on blushing skin. Wondering if maybe you’re gonna give in. I close my eyes just so I can be with you, I close my eyes so my dreams come true. But most of all, when I see your reflection, All I see is co...

    All I know is broken glass, A shattered life, torn in half. A dream, a wish, Unaccomplished. Trying to stand on your own two feet. Falling backwards, accepting defeat. Millions of tears, still I cry Pain is an anchor- unable to fly. But you try and try and get nowhere Life is so incredibly ...

    Anger boils through the blood in my veins. They don’t understand the chronic pain. They sit, they wait, they cultivate Destruction of the minorities. Without a feeling of seniority. They grit their teeth, a devil within They aggravate, frustrate, committing sin. They expect respect and don...

    He calls me beautiful, he makes me smile. My heart pounds harder if just for awhile. My mind races, I analyze everything, I sit down on the couch and start to sing. My phone buzzes so I reach down, Pull it out of my pocket, and replace my frown With a gorgeous smile between blushing cheeks. I...
