    I’ve been trying to be patient, But you know I am a mess, I am falling into pieces And it’s not too hard to guess, If you’re looking for someone To keep you warm at night, You could hold me by your side, And I swear it’d be all right If you said forget it in the morning, I’d nod ...

    I’ve been so busy, so much left to do, But I have time for a minute or two. Before I begin, I have to confess, It’s been a long time since I felt like this. And I know that you don’t know what to surmise Don’t know how to feel; it was too much a surprise. And I know you’ve been busy,...

    I think too much. Sometimes, I seem to be planning for every single possible incident. For example, Yesterday, I was walking with Chris, Or maybe it was today, But we heard a Dog barking from an apartment My first thought was, He is going to jump out the window. In my mind, I saw the sha...

    The halls are growing quiet here, In my empty world of empty people, Who whisper “impossible” in their sleep. The halls are growing colder here, In my private school of private girls, Who are scared of what the world may keep. The walls are waking here, In my little mind of little dream...

    I'll just take a shower, cause today there ain't no rain. Don't need to be washing but I'll get clean all the same. One advantage of the water falling is you won't see me crying. I've got no reason if you ask why, and I don't feel like lying. Life can be confus...

    Have you ever read a book That awakened inside an agitation, a stirring, strife? Suddenly the characters aren't characters at all, But are minuscule fragments of your own life. Thousands of puzzle pieces, atoms put together, Which form both your knowledge and all unbeknown... So the pain ...

    At night, I lose my inhibitions in the dark And my filter in my brain all but disappears, until Suddenly it seems okay, Even smart, To tell you everything. To tell you more than what you want to hear. I will tell the truth as I see it, With no smooth edges, No – truth as ragged as a disc...

    What is a happy medium? I don't see any "happy" here. When all wishes are compromised, Eventually they disappear. Remember when their expectations Didn't cause all these complications? Back in the day when admiration Was simple as appreciation. We barely had to try. Whe...

    I’m staying up too late again, I’ll go to bed, just don’t know when For now, let’s lean back and listen to the dark. I can’t take back what I’ve said, I can’t stop looking up ahead, Where everything looks like a question mark. So I’ll turn out the lights, And squeeze my arms t...

    I want someone to hold me tight And tell me everything's all right When I know that everything's askew. I want someone to take control And tell me that I'm beautiful, Even when I know, that's not true. I want an arm draped over my chair, Rubbing my back, playing with my ...

    This wasn’t “once upon a time” in some far-away nation, There was no princess, no prince, and no predestination. No towers to the sky, and no knight in shining chain mail, No dragons or royal battles – not that kind of fairy tale. Just a girl reading of worlds she wished she could live ...

    2. I walked into Misericordia with ignorance. I didn’t know how to pronounce its name, how it started, who it was for, and I didn’t even know what it was. Here is all I did know: I knew that I was going on my second mission trip with Young Neighbors in Action (my last was to Detroit), and I kne...

    My pupils drown the world in black, As they expand over the colors of my eyes. I wanna cry – “I’m not going back, To that time, to those lies, And I’m going to be so much more, More than I would let myself be.” It’s not like it was before, And that life I had, it’s not me. I th...

    Have you ever felt the breath Blown off an angel's wing? A quiver past your heart, A shiver of a zing. To wake up your slumbering, For good or tragic ends. Teardrops on your pillow, A clean slate, to make amends. The tremble fits a song that fits All that's going on. The memory o...

    I'll never say I need you And I will never say I'm scared. I am so afraid of losing And I am not prepared. I am not the type of girl who sits Watching a football game. Not the girl at parties, Who knows everyone's name. I'm not going to lie to you, Pretend I'm someo...

    I'm learning new things, but I didn't know It would hurt so much, break me down. Lay out for the disc, lay out for the show, I didn't know, When I hit the ground My knees bruise too easily, And the grass cuts in my hands My shoulder sore, Look at me. What happened to my plans? ...

    If it's gonna rain, then make it storm. If you give me an inch, can't you give me more? If it's gonna rain, then let it pour. Won't you drown me tonight, I don't care to see the light. Because the clouds just make it harder to hide I'm in for the long ride. If it...

    I don't remember what rank we were in, I've no clue what the points would've been. I don't remember who caught the last goal, Don't even know if I caught anything at all. So here's what I remember, after all was done- Not the games that we lost, or the number we wo...

    I'm sick and tired of all those songs They play, Heart break, break up, they're all The same. First kiss, reminisce on love bliss, as if That exists. Crushing on and being crushed, being flushed Being blushed. I'm sick of tired of all those, so dang tired of Those songs. Whe...

    I'm getting scared, I won't lie. Watching your life pass me by. Things will be different when you leave, For me it's better to just disbelieve. I see you cry, knowing you're growing away, Before you go, there are things I've gotta say. You used to hold me tight, From ...

    I know sometimes things feel like s*** And there's no escaping it, but If I believe that there's a way I can make it another day. When things get tough and I'm weighed down Look around, see a ghost town From the emotions we once felt. We play the hand that we're dealt. Li...

    Life is moving faster than speeding through the express lane, And people fly by, we're living on the borderlands of sane. And it's okay... we stay up late at night, Knowing things will be alright, Can't forget the stress as we're fighting through it all, But before I even ha...

    I'm gonna step out on a limb here, and try one more time, To navigate this mess of mine, over mountains climb. Because for you, oh, anything is possible now, And it's true, oh, about this I avow: I'll mess up, but I'll fess up, and when my stress is up, You can guess I'...

    I don't cry when a sad movie's credits roll. My tear ducts are dry while others are full. I don't weep at romance novels where the heroine dies. I'm not the kind of girl who just rolls up and cries. Here's the thing- Don't you know? When you see me around, You don...

    I see the world as a child's toy, A spinning top that's going round. I think I see a hand spinning it, But that starts to get too profound. I see the world as a mold of clay; I pretend my steps leave a print. Then I think about how sad it is, That I had barely made a hint. If I...
