    Someone needs to come and save me. I thought I could do it alone But then the darkness pressed into my sides Stole my breath Filled me. Stubborn, I fought alone. Pushing my arms away from my body In a desperate attempt to give myself space It kept getting closer And closer And closer U...

    I’ve planted a flower for you. In a field. It’s been covered up By a glass box. Safe. But one day I decided she was Strong enough To be uncovered Strong enough To face the world. The flower stands tall For a day. But then A girl Holding hands with You Stepped on And killed M...

    It looms over me. A could that never leaves Slowly creeping up Now a dense fog covering me I surrender to the cloud The light goes out I am spinning Around and around I am lost I don’t remember who I am Who I was When will I again be myself? I’ve lost what I stand for What I ...

    I am sitting here wondering “Should I listen? Is what you’re saying really That Important?” What kind of authority Do you even have over me? Why should I listen to any word That spews freely and unopposed from your mouth? Why should I not Stand up and counter your claims? Why can...

    Have you ever heard feelings scrape against the chalkboard? Loud and painful, bringing tears to your eyes. All you want is for everything to be better. You cry for those feelings. Dragged across the chalkboard by someone you thought you could trust. You scream for the wordless feelings. Desper...

    Isn’t it funny how Nothing goes as planned? I thought things were going great But then you dropped my hand. I see the truth But only through your lies You say “you’re moving” That’s not the reason why “Can we still be friends?” Sets my heart aflame Why should I still be ...

    I zip up my dress And put on my shoes I wait and wait But where are you? I want to be mad You’ve never stood me up; true I’ve always been around But where are you? My phone rings There’s been a wreck. Involving who? Why’d they call me? Where are you? I survey the damage A ...

    I kissed you, yes But it wasn't my move. I moved closer to you, But you leaned. I'd stood on my tippy-toes Our lips had met But only for a second You leaned Thoughts of our "out-of-bounds play" Made me happy, but my joy was cut short; You're just a player With...

    Words fill the air. Saying everything, But explaining nothing. What I really want to say is trapped. Trapped by feelings, timing, And even words themselves. When I'm all out of useless words I pull out the most cliche phrase in the book; I'm sorry Sorry for the kiss, The aw...

    It's good, inspiring Or so they say. Yet, tears roll down my face I liked you the old way When you: Smiled with your eyes Hugged like it was our last goodbye Held back your tears when you wanted to cry. When you didn't act that much like a guy. I hate that you're: Cocky,...
