    As I sit here, I drown in the lack of intelligence-ness. My arms cling for anything to grasp— the hand of a semi-colon, the knob of a dieresis door. slowly down i crash. others ignorant to the things they are not truly learning. my poetical mind is slowly dying. i search for a soft place ...

    I want a shirt of yours To dream in. The smell of you Drifting into my dreams, Where you and I Might venture to a place Where all is silent and peaceful. I want your shirt To sleep in So all my dreams may be pleasant, So I may be safe, And nothing will dare Break my sleep. The shirt of ...

    Words could never do justice To the way his light brown hair Falls down his face so elegantly, The way it just barely touches his Brows, the way you can almost see Clouds in his bright sky blue eyes. The words fail me so. The words could never Be written on paper. Yet, there they are. M...

    When all you wish to do Is sleep the day away; When you struggle To struggle through a day Because the world is clouded By the tears filling The emptiness that now resides Where your soul Used to lie. This, This is real. Reality has sunk in, Everything has grown numb. It is when numb i...

    Your bitterly cold fingers Reach out to me, Tangle themselves in my hair; They reach for my own, Trying to intertwine Yours and mine. Stay away from me; Do not gently touch Your wandering white lips To my nose that wishes to stay warm. Others may revel in you, But to me, you are most cert...

    Why are you keeping secrets, Hiding the truth from me? I didn’t do anything To deserve you lying to me. I was there for you all along, All you ever did was drag me down. My heart is stuck in a match of ping-pong; You are standing there, Forcing me to drown. Why are you keeping secret...

    We wait in silence To hear the sound of safety. Police sirens are heard Resounding through brick walls. A man walks down the halls. We all have fear— For our very lives. Scenes of lovely memories Do not flash before my eyes. Tears no longer stream Down my terrified face. I huddle in a c...

    There is something different about you. No judgment is resting inn your eyes, Harsh words never escape from your lips, We talk about nothing sometimes, But within those words lies something deeper— Discovery. Through your words, I figure you out. You tell me everything— More than I woul...

    How gently you touch me, No intention of aggression. You make me look up to the sky To thank god for this lovely thing He has concocted. You cover every inch of my body, Drenching me. Rain is so sweet, So gentle, And smells like a brand new day. I will gladly take you Over a boy any day....

    Blankets of time Are slowly crushing me, Pushing me down further Into my loving bed. Wearing down the youth Of my bones. Blankets of time Are slowly crushing me, Pushing me down Into the Depths of the Dead. Eventually, I know I will meet my fate. A beautiful young man Will great me at...

    My name is Amanda, I am only thirteen years old. I saw my sister last night— Outside with her friends, They were laughing, Having a good time. I wanted to join in— So I did. They were all smoking They asked if I wanted one. What was I supposed to do? Say no, and look like a complete ...

    In the first stanza, He will compare her Bright green eyes to the Dew-stricken green grass. He will continue To say how her long Blonde hair must have small Streaks of sunlight and That she must use sun To redden her cheeks. In the next stanza, About where we are, He will declare his l...

    The sun slips through the clouds To say hello to the autumn trees. You reach for my hand, Only to miss and grab my heart. As we lay in the grass, Looking at the bright coulds Floating high above us, I listen to your heart stutter, Your lungs colliding with you ribcage, Your hair rustling in...

    What do you do When you feel your life Slowly falling apart? When you begin to cry rivers That could fill up the ocean? Walls will come crashing down; No longer will there be Anything to stop pain From penetrating my heart. Grief has overcome me. I can no longer Just walk through the hal...

    What does it mean When you dream about someone? Are our dreams trying to tell us something? If we go to the movies, Does that mean we’re “just friends?” If you wrap your arm around me, And hold my hand until I Fall asleep, does that mean We belong together? If I’m walking down the...

    How do you walk away Without knowing what The other side of the door may hold? By taking a window, All you have is the ground— Which you find isn’t so soft When you hit it at 35 miles per hour— Which can crush you from The inside out. The door was the safer option. It may hold the pa...

    Do you still not trust me After all I’ve done for you, All I’ve been through with you? I stood under Your constantly falling bridge, There to simply support it As you walk across With a jackhammer in your hands. The rubble Of the bridge that means The most to me Is too much to be...

    On that Friday night when we are lying beneath the speaking stars, lift me up. Let us dance to the wonderful music of the night sky. As you float up towards the stars, do not leave me on the ground. Wrap your arms around me tighter than you have ever done before. When the moon has gr...

    When all my life has gone, and this body rests alone on that nasty, uncomfortable bed in hospital room 304, please just let me go, release me. Do not mourn over what you have lost. Do not cry at my funeral. Celebrate the time I have spent upon the Earth. Go on and get on with your li...

    When you return sleepy-eyed and tired from your trip, just try to remember me. I am the one who loved you 'til the end, laid out in the sun with you while you recovered from a night in the hospital. I am the one who wiped the tears from your eyes when you found out she no longer l...

    Don't you dare look at me with those sweet blue eyes of yours. How they penetrate my thoughts! You talk to me sweet in light, but at dark, when you have been letting the words spill from your mouth to your dear old friend Jim Beam-- while he pours thoughts into your mind, words you ar...

    Breathe in the morning air, listen to the sound of the rustling leaves. Watch the sun rise from the comfort of your own living room. Take in the smell of the roasting coffee beans, the volcano of waffles and butter and syrup. Bring the rim of the cup to your lips, sip. Pick up your pen, ...
