Almost always, when something influences you and the life you live, it can be seen in a negative way as well as a positive way. It is always easier to sulk in the negativity of a situation, yet always beneficial to find the p...

    What’s the matter, Love? Wasn’t I good enough for you? Was being in my life too tough? I knew it wasn’t true. Wasn’t I perfect the way I was? Why did you try and change me? Did you find someone else, a new blank canvas? Are you shoving me out, or setting me free? What is it, Darl...

    Pretty, pretty please, Pinky promise me, Stay here and never leave. Hold me tight, We can put up this flight, Our fire is burning so bright. Let’s run away, Together we can stay, I see everything we can make But you keep on running, Not seeing what we’re becoming, Am I the only ...

    That’s how it goes, we go around and around We get to the top, and fall back down That’s just how it was meant to be Never being set completely free Some days, I actually felt pretty I’m falling back into unwanted self-pity I’m back at the bottom, and I’m here to stay Every ni...

    I don’t know what you want me to do, But, if I did, I’d be doing it for you Don’t you see how I blame myself every time you’re mad? Can’t change anything, but I wish I could go back Feels like nothing I do is right The end of my tears aren’t even in sight Don’t you see how I’m ...

    I want to write a beautiful poem One that makes you feel silly and able to float Using such big words and perfect rhymes Not too cliché and flows just like time I want to write a beautiful poem, that even adults love On that gets you through when push comes to shove You can hear the mus...

    I know what it’s like To be homeless Not allowed to step foot in the place I grew up I know what it’s like To be stabbed, Right in the heart and even in the back I know what it’s like To be starving Wanting more and more knowledge but no one will tell you I know what it’s like To b...

    I’m on my way to an everlasting sleep Forever fighting, forever weak Feeling like I will never come back; You told those lies so matter-of-fact If I sleep, my time will stand still While yours will move along against your will No, this isn’t what I would have chosen But you’ve worn me d...

    Don’t you trust me? Please, just let me be I’ll do my thing, you’ll do yours You can’t keep locking all my doors I know how you feel in your heart, But let us drift a little apart We have the sea between us, But I’m not allowed to move If I try and swim, I know I will lose Don’t...

    Wondering through the day alone I don’t mean as much as I used to I envy all the inseparable friends, More then ever I miss you Don’t tell me that lie one more time, Or I might just finally explode Please don’t treat me like a kid, I’m better off alone Don’t ask me to change my...

    You promised no one would get in the way You always promised you’d be here to stay I could tell you anything that came to mind We got so close in such short time Shorter than that, we started drifting You took all your sand and started sifting I was just a small piece, left behind Not...

    She looks up to you with everything she has; You've got her thinking you're perfect, oh how sad. Drugs are your escape, and soon they will be hers. You're looking bad now, but she will look worse. The boys are all over her, it's nothing new. She's been listeni...

    I miss you when you’re not even gone Say you miss me too, just play along I love you, but you’re not even mine We don’t have to be together for my heart to be tied like twine I think about you when you’re not even here I think about how you never caused me a tear I write to you, ...

    I can’t stand talking to you Because, at the end of the day, it leaves me bent and bruised I know I love you and will never leave You know it too, and continue to use it against me A love-hate relationship doesn’t begin to explain my confusion Never have I stuck with my “final” conclusi...

    Lets light a fire on the moon And dance in the smoked-cherry light Pour water on the sun And stand under the acid rain in flight Lets spin the earth the other way So we lead instead of follow Lets throw our trash in a black hole And see what it can swallow Let’s race to a new universe ...

    My hairs up; I’m pretty as can be Take a step, and my hand, and dance with me Hold my waist and spin me around We’ll dance until we fall to the ground Turn up the music, as loud as it goes Dim the lights, this is what we chose This night will be the time of our lives Full of firsts,...
