Just want to tell you

Just want to tell you
What you mean to me.
You've been my mom
And looked after me.
I'm telling you now
So don't deny.
You're the best a mom can be

What I feel for you

What I feel for you

I saw you dancing there
Dancing on the scene
Now I really care
Care only for you

What I feel for you
It is really true
I love only you
Baby,sweetie,you...

When you're by my side
Hugging me or else
Guess what's on my mind?
Yes...It's only you...

What I feel for you
It is really true
I love only you
Baby,sweetie,you...

When you talk to me
And I see your eyes
Love takes me with you
And we can fly...

What I feel for you
It is really true
I love only you
Baby,sweetie,you...

And you know how I feel
But you don't feel the same
And I cry and cry
Loving you each day...

What I feel for you
It is really true
I live only you
Baby,sweetie,you...

I could do
Anything for you
But I bet that you
Could do anything for me too...

What I feel for you
It is really true
I love only you
Baby,sweetie,you...

Only you...You...

In Loving Memory

In Loving Memory

*-~-~-To Jenny Carter-~-~-*

You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why

In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still
In our hearts you hold a place
That none could ever fill

A part of our hearts have gone with you
That can never be replaced
A look,a sign,a laugh,a need
Or just to touch your face

They say that time heals all pain and sorrow
And helps us to forget
But time so far has only proven
How much we miss you yet

~'~~Rest in Peace Jenny~~'~
You may not be with us any longer,but you'll always live on in our hearts,sweetie.

Lots of love from Ashley,Nicole,Karen and Christie.

HONEST!

HONEST!
Let's be honest,
let's be true,
could you love anyone
the way they loved you
that is the qestion i'm asking you?

Hope can unhold

Hope can unhold
The way that I feel
Which never gets old
It's all in the deal
Love is that way
Like a spiritless soul
Filled with deceit and worries
I don't know for who
And i don't know why
I'm only 13
Maybe it's all a lie
I'm paranoid in that way
Though I can't understand it
No one's that mean
I just say "damn it!"
For me it's never true
So i stay defensive
With no one to trust
Because love has no proof
Until one day
When i'll just go "poof!"

I took a star from the sky and gave it

I took a star from the sky
And gave it to you.
Your smile made me feel anew.
A new dream of the day
When you and I will runaway
Into the sunset we will roam
We'll walk hand in hand
And never forget the shining star.

Think of a cloud

Think of a cloud

Every day when you wake up,
Something else is waking,
These are the clouds up in the sky,
You cannot hear the noise they're making.

Every day they glide around,
Watching the people go by,
The softness and sweetness of them,
How they wish they were alive.

So each day when the sun is hiding,
And the clouds are all raining,
Just respect them, they're allowed to let rip,
Because of years and years of straining.

Being a cloud isn't easy,
You and me would never know,
They float around, not making a sound,
Just watch how slowly they go.

They cannot walk, they cannot breathe,
They sometimes want some life.
So when it's raining and they're all straining
Just imagine what it is like.

Fluffy cloud!, 11

Truly Free

Truly Free
I stood on the street holding an armful of
Pain, sorrow, hate, anger, frustration, and misery
The voice told me to run
So I ran.
And as I ran I kicked my legs and
Slowly began to rise.
And as I rose
I kept kicking.
And as I kicked
It became harder and harder to
Hold on to everything in my arms.
So one by one
I let go.
Anger left me
Pain and misery I threw to the winds
Hate and frustration flew behind me.
Finally I was able to let go of my sorrow
And I soared.
I picked up two things the higher I got.
Love
and
Hope.
And I never looked back
For even with the light weights I now clutched
I was truly free

The unresolved secret

The unresolved secret
It mystifies all.
The most powerful force on earth
It might capture you.
Hidden inside
Making an appearance when the time is right.
Sweeping you up
Carrying you off.
You,
Ignorant but willing
To be taken prisoner
By the magical feeling.
Those who get a touch
Strive and reach
For more.
A necessity
We dont all realize
The need
Yet we all yearn.
And you see the light
When your passion is fulfilled
And it reaches you.
A feeling
Indescribable
Topped by nothing
Saving you from lonely clutches
Bringing people together
Joining the perfect ones
Strong and fragile
Dont let go.
I still reach.
Love

A stranger lies

A stranger lies
Familiar
But changed.
No words are spoken
No glances shared.
Cool like the fall breeze
Her somber hands.
Face shut to the world
Closed to any emotion or connection.
Breath has escaped her.
Only this remains.

Reaching down
Her forehead
Light on my lips.
Again I kiss
Panicked with lost words
Words you never heard
Smiles left in the dark
Collecting the dust of sorrow.

Wet
My eyes.
An opened dam
Surrendering to the flood of tears
Burning a path.
I try to send comfort
Through to free my heart
Of the had clenching around it
Squeezing out the tears.
Failing
I no longer fight them
But shake as they fall.
They fall
But leave the sorrow behind
My appearance has no meaning
As my pain is painted across my face.

A sea of darkness
Rolls over me.
Weak
I dont struggle
But fall prey to the power.
Helpless
I sink
Drowning in my sorrow
Alone.
Empty.
Withered.

sometimes i wonder,

Sometimes I wonder,
what everyone thinks of me.
do they like me cause Im pretty,
or cause I'm just plain me?

Being pretty has its downsides,
shallow people like your looks
It's hard to know whom you can trust
sometimes I hide in books

Well, I am I, ill take it
theres nothing I can do,
but hey, Im cool whatever
my body will have to do

I sit out on the roof

I sit out on the roof and stare up at the sky,
and wonder why my father had to die.
I wonder why he left that night,
I wonder why he had to fight.
My only wish, he was here,
but of course is nowhere near.
I wish that I could see him one last time.
Although I can't forget the past,
I hope a miracle could appear,
but all I find is a hopeless tear.
Of course I know that God is there,
my memory cannot compare.
I know that he is safe and sound,
I just wish he were out and abound.
If only I would see him now,
but now I only wonder how?

TELL ME

Why can't I trust the ones I hold dear?
Why can't I say the words I want to say?
How long will I live with this never-ending fear;
That if I trust and share things won't go the right way?

Why, why am I here? Do I make a difference?
When will I finally dare to speak the truth about how I feel?
Will I ever be sure that it is my time, my time to finally shine?
I'm just so confused; can you please tell me why?

-i'll always love you-

I know you love me
and that you care
so I thank you
for always being there

I know sometimes
it hurts you twice
whenever tears
are coverin' my eyes

I know sometimes
you wish Id go
but you love me
in your heart you always know

I also know
I brought tears to your eyes
filled your heart
with hurtful lies

But through all this
one thing is true
Mom Ill always
love you!

-I'm Sorry-

I got mad
when you read my diary
you looked down
and whispered sorry

You hugged me
in front of my friends
I said it embarrassed me
so you turn away
and whispered sorry

We talked over the phone
you said you miss me
I am waiting for some calls
so you hung up
and whispered sorry

I didn't reply
when you said you love me
I was busy
you said you were sorry

I received a call
thought it was from you
instead t'was from someone
someone I knew

It was my brother
telling me to go
Mom was paralyzed
and I had to know

I looked at you
you couldn't walk
and you couldn't
even talk

So I bent beside you
2 words that makes sense
2 words that used to hurt me
I whispered
"Mom Im sorry"

Changing in time

If you died,
I'd still be here.
I'd be the same,
But lost without you.
Your ways are familiar,
Yet they still confuse me.

Time will pass,
Yet as I move forward
Youre still in my heart,
But lost in my head.
I never thought,
Your memory,
Would be changing in time.

I used to know a girl

I used to know a girl
That died long ago
Face shown toward the light
Getting ready to take flight
Over the boundaries
Of what she knew
All to a place where she couldn't turn back
She'd fallen in love
Again and again
Only to be shot down
Her time to mend
Life after life
It never changed
'Til she looked in the mirror one day
To see what she'd become
Of that she didn't want
No longer time to flaunt
The emotions that flown free
Fate at last pulled her together
And she became me

Thank-You

For the long, hot summers playin' in the park,
For the tears and the screams that almost drove us apart.
For the boys and the kisses and all the love too,
For giggly evenings wearin' high-heeled shoes.
For sleepovers at your place where we stayed up all night,
For lonely hours with you huggin' me tight.
For bowlin' and skatin' and pizzas in town,
For all those nights your mum had me round.
For autumn days skippin' to school,
For you standin up and telling bullies I was cool.
For our bond and for our friendship,
Thanx.

For Our Friendship

For Our Friendship

For long hot summers playing in the park,
For giggly sleepovers whispering in the dark,
For me and you just chilling on our own,
For all our singing perfecting our tone.
For all our ballet exams you took with me,
For that concert your mum once took us to see.
For gymnastics, (our life) you're such a star,
For that special drive in your dad's new car.
For the seasons of friendship we spent together,
For you just being there through all kinds of weather.

This poem is for my soul mate, Mia. It describes all aspects of our very special bond. From Alissa to Mia xx

Love Drifting

As my love drifts away in my mind,
I sit and wonder am I meant to find true love?
Am I meant to fall in love?
Or should I stop searching and love find me?
Maybe thats the answer to my problem
Love cannot be solved it has to let alone and let blossom naturally.
As tears fall and I plead to find the answer.
I would think I would never fall in love, that I would never be cared for.
For I fall and tremble so alone, so scared.
And when I see a light I see a face so familiar,
As the face picked me upit was my one true love.
He wasn't drifting away but he was trying to get close to me
But I pushed him away. Then silently I heard the words that really wanted to hear.
I Love You...

~*You try*~

~*You try*~

You try to say goodbye,
But it only comes out as a cry.
You try to touch his arm,
But it seems so terribly far.
You try to wipe the tears away,
But they only want to stay.
You try to grab his hand
And stop him while you can.
But they just keep driving without looking back
You realize when it snaps
You gave up the one that you love,
To someone that lives up above.
You whisper, I love you. As they drive away
Its the only thing that you can say.
But then all of the sudden you realize,
Hes gone forever; he took his life.

The Fire Within

The Fire Within

The fire within
It crawls beneath your skin
And drives you insane
Just like a game
You wish it would leave
But it just makes you grieve
Its here to stay
And wont go away
It is a friend for life
As it cuts you with a knife
You try to understand
What it has done to your friends
But you realize the fire within
Is from all of your long gone sins

I lost it

I lost it

I lost my independence
I lost my confidence
I lost my love for animals
I lost everything I owned
It happened late one night
As soon as I turned off the bedroom light
I heard a quiet sound
Like mice scurrying across the ground
I sat upright in bed
And tried to shake my head
But the noise just got louder
And then someone grabbed my shoulder
They had a knife in their hand
Its something I will never understand
I screamed out loud but they covered my mouth
Then they let the knife come down
Slowly, slowly I fell to the ground
They climbed out the window
Everything went by so slow
I heard cries from my mother and father
Somebody call an ambulance someone killed our daughter
I closed my eyes and said goodbye
This time I'll try not to cry
But I cant help it if I do
Goodbye guys I love you.

See me crying

See me crying on my bed
As youre pretty face runs through my head
As I think about the way you look
And wonder why I'm so shook
I don't understand why you left me
I thought that we were meant to be
You walked through that door
And I will see you no more
You didnt even say goodbye
Thats what made me really cry
You got in your car and drove away
And that was truly the very last day
That I saw you straight alive
I wish there was someway you could give me a sign
But I know that is impossible
Until it happens really slow
The lights go out as I think about you
And then I really know its true
You didnt die by accident, it wasnt a mistake
And I just know my heart is gonna break
I have to tell someone, before its to late
But no one will believe me, they think it was fate
They believe you committed suicide
I told them I knew you wouldnt do that, they say I lied.
O I miss you so much please come back
But how can you? Ill never forget thats a fact
Dont ever forget me because I love you
But do you still love me too?

He's gone

He's gone

He looked at me with his big green eyes.
As I watched him leave I began to cry.
He looked back at me, and took my hand
He said, "I'm sorry you wouldn't understand."
I nodded my head towards the door,
And with that he said no more.
He kissed me goodbye
As I asked him, "Why?"
He shook his head,
And left instead
He headed towards the stairs
And ran his hand through his hair
I ran after him as fast as I could
He turned around, and put up his hood
He just kept walking without looking back
I grabbed his arm, but he showed no slack
He just shooed me away
Before I could say
"I love you." to him
I realized my life would be so dim
But I would have to live with the pain
Even if he came back it wouldn't be the same
Soon he disappeared over the hill.
Even though I love him still.

I Miss You

I think of you everyday
I wish this feeling would go away
Every hour I want to talk to you
Just to hear that sweet voice of yours

My heart is aching
This I am not joking
I miss feeling your soft touch
This is why I miss you so much

I can't wait for this week to be over
So we can be together
I hope you miss me
As much as I miss you

When I see you again
I'm gonna hug you tight
So you better stand strong
Cause this I won't regret

I'm going to give you a gentle kiss
On those precious lips of yours
You show you were the one
I thought of most

At this special time of year,

At this special time of year,
We all give mum a cheer.
For being kind, helping us make up our mind,
Mum is always there.

For all the things she has done,
Like making outings fun,
Through rain and shine, all the time,
Mum will stand by you.

So we thank her for,
All the things she cooks, yum!
And most of all for being mum!

Eyes like an ocean

Eyes like an ocean,
reflections of our dreams on a summer field,
drifting on the palms of our hands,
endlessly separating and then becoming one again,
a love so silent and deep,
like an earthy grove of sparkling trees,
forever the branches reach to an endless cloud of bliss,
embraced by the rays of the sun,
and held by the morning rain,
a softly stroked crescent of truth,
this is what I see in you.

The Boyfriend

Why does she like him?
He is so mean!
She sticks up for him,
it makes me so green.

She has started to hate me.
I'm looking out for her!
Shes hurting my feelings,
but she doesnt care.

Most see him like I do.
But she thinks he's major!
But the truth is,
he's really danger.

He swears, smokes and beats people up.
Hes not right
cos he is to rough!
She doesn't see it.
She thinks he's buff.

Maybe Im wrong.
Maybe she saw through.
He gives her advice and buys her stuff too.

Ive learnt a lesson and it's important:
That first impressions can sometimes be bad.
He doesn't swear smoke fight or steal.
Those were just rumors
and they were not real.

In a Perfect World

In a perfect World,
We would always be together!
In a perfect World,
Life would rise to the occasion,
In a perfect world,
The hottest couple would be.
You and me.

In our heart of hearts,
We will be there for each other,
In our heart of hearts,
Our love will never lose,
In our heart of hearts,
Our feelings are eternal.
Just me and you.

The Window sill

As I was sitting on the window sill inside looking out letting the soft breeze ruffle my hair I looked at the red, pink, orange-ish sky, the sea ruffling softly, the soft spray misting my face. It felt warm and smooth against my skin. The soft breeze ruffled the plant on the sill as the sky got darker and crystal stars started to appear on the now calm shining sea. I went to bed dreaming sweet dreams.

Tune of 'Daisy' (with reworked lyrics)

Well, first off, it's a song... but hell all songs are just poems with overly pompous and well dressed people singing them...
Its set to the tune of 'Daisy"... its kinda a punk cover with reworked lyrics.

Maria, Maria, your absence is making me blue, I wish I could see ya, I wish I could hold you, hold out a few more days I'm promise it'll be worth the wait, you be happy, when I get sappy, and tell you how I feel for you...

(faster, with electric guitar)

Maria, Maria, your absence is making me blue, I wish I could see ya, I wish I could hold you, hold out a few more days I'm promise it'll be worth the wait, you be happy, when I get sappy, and tell you how I feel for you...

I'm crazy, I'm crazy, for you its been 3 days, and thats four to many, if I had a penny, for every time I missed you, I'd buy you the house next to mine...

Maria, Maria, your absence is making me blue, I wish I could see ya, I wish I could hold you, hold out a few more days I'm promise it'll be worth the wait, you be happy, when I get sappy, and tell you how I feel for you

I'm crazy, I'm crazy, for you its been 3 days, and thats four to many, if I had a penny, for every time I missed you, I'd buy you the house next to mine...

Maria, Maria, can't you see I'm wild for you, I cant sleep, ah! I f*cking love you, I can't wait any longer, get up now, come'on girl. I make your life better, and your lips wetter, when I sleep under the stars, with you...

Another song...

I've had this feeling for too long, it doesn't let me sleep at night,
It nags me not to screw up, it tells me this time we gotta get it right.
Its unwise and unhealthy, but so is my Flintstones nightlight...
Would somebody help me, get through tonight?

Cause she's on mind, yes she's on mind, and she's on mind...consuming my mind, consuming my mind... yea she's consuming my mind. Could somebody help me?
Get her off my mind, cause she's on my mind
And although I love her, I want her off mind, so I can SLEEP TONIGHT!!

I toss and turn in bed, the voices are talking loudly,
They tell me to tell her soon, they tell me to tell her proudly.
Its unwise and unhealthy, to love her so devoutly
Would somebody help me, momentarily forget about thee...

Cause she's on mind, yes she's on mind, and she's on mind...consuming my mind, consuming my mind... yea she's consuming my mind. Could somebody help me?
Get her off my mind, cause she's on my mind
And although I love her, I want her off mind, so I can SLEEP TONIGHT!!

Its a possibility, that she feels different,
I guess I have to realize, she might not want children.
Its unwise and unhealthy; she could like other men,
Could somebody help me, she might just wanna be friends...

Cause she's on mind, yes she's on mind, and she's on mind...consuming my mind, consuming my mind... yea she's consuming my mind. Could somebody help me?
Get her off my mind, cause she's on my mind
And although I love her, I want her off mind, so I can SLEEP TONIGHT!!

Hum 8

I did it to get revenge.
But in the end it was I who was hurt.
In Hum 8 I sat beside you to annoy you.
Seeing you begging and pleading was quite funny.
I truly disliked you in all ways.
Sitting beside you was my own little way of hurting you.

Time went by and somehow we became friends.
I had let my guard down, thinking you would never hurt me.
I could trust you with all my secrets and me yours.
Our friendship was great, but wasn't prepared for the next step.

You liked me, everyone knew. Your friends would always tell me.
The way you acted, I knew too. But I wasn't prepared for that.
I tried my hardest to push you away. You didn't understand.
I truly loved you, but I was afraid.

Our friendship grew thin. I didn't know what to do. You found someone else.
O did it hurt so much to see her. Even after her you found your own way of life.
I tried to get you back, but you shot me down so hard.

Now I hardly ever see you. We don't even speak. I want to tell you it was my mistake.
I shouldn't have let us go our separate ways!

His Eyes Were the Deepest Blue

Those eyes...they were the deepest blue,
His lips, they once touched mine,
His tongue, rolling around in my mouth, as I didn't have a clue,
Why couldn't I see past this sign?

His hand brushed my hair,
As it blew in the autumn air,
His hug was so tight,
And our first kiss was so light...

It was all a game to him,
A game called love,
I couldn't see past his fake affections,
And that was the way he liked it.

When the day came and he broke my heart,
I felt as if it were the end of the world,
I missed his kiss, his so close hugs,
And then I thought... that's the game of love.

I'm me

I'm me
And I'm proud
I love me
And I'll say it out loud
I love myself
That's just the way it is
Do you love yourself
You should be proud of it
Remember that you're you
And nobody else
Only the things you do
You share or keep it to yourself
Don't copy anyone
That isn't the real you
I mean come on
You are only you
If people tease you
It's because they are jealous
Don't listen to people
That say that you're ugly and selfish
I'm me
And I'm proud
I love me
And I'll say it out loud

summer holiday what a great time

summer holiday what a great time
the spanish so happy and kind
summer sea as blue as the sky
i never want to say goodbye
soft gold sand a great delight
as little kids play fight
fun on the beach will never end
i am about to go around the bend
the seagulls loudly sing
children pretend to be king
as the fruit people throw their fresh fruit
the bots horn goes toot toot
ooohh nooo its time to go i shed a tear!!
but never mind we will be back, next year!!!

Just A Dream

Just A Dream

I went to sleep, I couldn't get up.
I dreamt of what I want to be when I grow up.
For a minute I thought I was shot, when people say things that hurt me a lot.
I couldn't care much what they think or what they thought. But, why should they judge someone on what they're not.
I woke up from the dream and still felt like I was floating in a stream.
I started to scream, but then i remembered it was just a dream.

The one i love,

The one i love,
is a person from above,
we went on a date,
he was late but i thought he was still great.

The other night,
i saw he had a bite,
i asked where it came from and he said,
i dont know red.

I saw him the other day,
and i sent him on his way,
as i had seen him with his secret lover,
and it made me suffer,
but i know i will cope,
as i have my heart full of hope.

Freedom

Freedom

What is Freedom?

Freedom is not a real word
It just causes grief in this world
For us.

How can there be freedom
when you're not allowed to see what's beyond?
Searching for right answers
Is a benefit of chosen few who can respond
To us.

In this era
where billions of information is transferred
We ask "Are we free?"
but this question never gets answered
Or does it?

Now I ask "What is Freedom?"
Tell me please
I don't want to be trapped in this question
Forever!

Angel Eyes

Angel Eyes

Oh angel eyes, sweeet eyes I spy, deceitful and sly, wicked and dry,
Screams with the wickedest fiercest cry,
Angel eyes so wicked and sly, why do you lie to yourself and I,
Angel eyes when you passed by, my heart died and went dry, cause you lied, to you yourself and I,
Oh why oh why did you lie, lied and made my soul went dry,
Made me believe that you and I loved, loved like the proud white dove above,
Now my heart from you must wash away, wash away but never die,
Wash away from imposed lies from you to I, yes wash away, wash away until it's dry,
Wash away from all my cries, all my cries from you to I, oh angel eyes, angel eyes, angel eyes,
deceitful and sly, with my final cry, with my pure heart I must not lie, to you from I, I must say goodbye.

Never knew it could be like this,

Never knew it could be like this,
Always filled with complete bliss.
I think about you all the time.
It feels so good to know you're all mine.
Worries of being hurt in the begining,
Now my love for you keeps ascending.
I've been hurt many times before,
Now, with you, I've got a whole new world to explore.
You're my everything, my all,
I know you'll be there to catch me if ever I fall.
It was impossible to think someone could mean this much to me.
I pray when you look at me, you see everything I see.

I Do Believe The Lord Above

I do believe the Lord above,
Created you for me to love,
He picked you from all the rest,
Because he knew I loved you the best.
I have a heart and it is true,
But now it has gone from me to you,
So take care of it as I have done,
For you have two and I have none.
If I die and you're not there,
I'll write us as the golden pair,
If youre not there by judgment day,
I know you went the other way.
And just to prove my love is true,
I'll go to hell just to spend time with you.

Why do us girls have to suffer?

Why do us girls have to suffer?
Boys think their much much tougher,
We get bullied if we dont look right,
When we love a boy, typical they stay out of sight.
We have to be perfect, wear the right clothes,
Just to impress the boys we show.
But we can't live without boys,
Playing with their little gadget toys,
Theyre funny, they make us laugh,
Why don't you, right this minute, have a laugh,
With your best mates, because no one can be so close
We share all our secrets, we paint our toes,
We have a night in, and talk about boys!
Well I couldn't live without boys and mates!

Crazy

Crazy about you and your stupid ways
Crazy to think that you would love me everyday
Crazy to crash that car into a tree
Crazy to think you would be there for me
Crazy to have opened the bottle that you had purchased for us all the while
Crazy to say that you are dead because of me you would have lived
Crazy to say that friends don't let friends drink and drivemaybe I should of listened to God sometimes
Crazy to say that I wish I could see
Crazy to be the one that killed you and me.

Spirit

Spirit.

Gliding unburdened, like the rising dawn,
Like the shimmering blaze that's the hues of morn.
With beauty unearthly and a priceless worth,
Without death, without birth.
Freedom itself is this peaceful being,
Bewitching, enchanting, but beyond human seeing.
But if evil gets its icy grip,
The angelic goodness from it will slip.
It guides your body while it breathes life around,
Then from your case it's no longer bound.
To exist eternally in tranquil calm,
So you never more can come to harm.
Your protector, your self, your very soul,
This wonderful magic makes you whole.
Something no person can ever take,
And an everlasting light that cannot break.
Immortal and yet so real,
Covers wounds no human can heal.
The element of joy and love and peace,
It lives on while your shell will cease.
You should be grateful, you should be glad,
Your spirits the best thing youve ever had.
Money cannot buy it, war cannot take it,
Death cannot kill it, life cannot make it.
It makes you complete, it makes you one,
Your spirit can never ever be gone.

Good Promises

I thought you were the one for me, but I guess I thought wrong.
Ever since we got together, we couldn't get along.
You wanted to go your way I wanted to go mine.
Good Promises

I am tired and pressed
I feel weary, with nothing left
But I know that
The Lord my God will never fail
My heart and soul cry
Not for sadness
But for His promise

When the morning comes
And theres nothing left for worldly life
I remember
The rising of the sun
Represents my new life

His good promises make my life
He brings the world beauty
And takes my strife
His promises, good promises, they stand
We are forever in the palm of His hand

I am alive and loved
I feel refreshed, I have been moved
Because I know that
My God has made me an image of Him
My heart and soul sing
Not for this Earth
But for His promise

When the morning comes
And theres a world to reach
I remember
The rising of the sun
Represents my new life

His good promises make my life
He brings the world beauty
And takes my strife
His promises, good promises, they stand
We are forever in the palm of His hand.

Since we broke up, I'm doing just fine.
Fine with my life, fine with everything.

The Wonderful Day!

It will be a wonderful day.
All of the children would want to play.
We would get ice cream and play with the ball,
Then if we have time we can go to the mall!

I Don't Think You Know

I don't think you know
Because my feelings for you I don't show
But its getting hard
With you trying to get close to me
At times I get so confused
It seems like you actually care
Then it seems like I am another
Girl in these halls
In this school
Sometimes I feel special
Different
Someone one you can actually care for
Then I go back to being that girl
You just talk to
Oh gosh I only wish you knew
How I feel toward you
But that just cant be
Why do you have to care?
It would be so much
Easier if u didn't
There wouldn't be so many ups and downs
If only I didn't feel this way
Things would be easier
I don't want to say I love you
Cause that word seems so strong
So powerful
But that's how I feel
When I see you
Everything you do
Everything you say
Seems to make me smile
Everything about you boy
Makes me act in a different way
I only wish I didn't feel this way
Then maybe I can walk away
You don't know how I feel about you
And baby that's always going to be true
Because you knowing how I feel about you
Is not going to work out
The last time it happened
I didn't talk to you for a year
A year filled with tears
A year empty of you
I don't think you will ever know
Because my feelings for you I will never show
No not again
I can't go through losing you twice
It hurts too much
I don't think you know
The way I feel for you
Every little thing I do
Is all about you
I cant let you know
I wont let you
Because I cant be hurt
Not again
Not by you

I'll Dance With You Anywhere

As I sit here staring out the window, even though you don't know
I say and think to myself wishing and hoping you can hear me think this once.
I think oh I would give my hear just to dance with you in the rain
I would dance with anywhere any weather anytime no matter how cold or hot.
No matter where we are I'd give my hat just to keep you dry.
I would give you my coat just so you stay warm.
I would give my soul to you just to be with you for the rest of my life.
I'd give my everything just to be with you for the rest of my life,
I want to be with you.

Mixed Feelings

Im inwards out and outwards in
Im so crazy about you; its unscripted in my skin
Im quiet now, not like before
When I wIm inwards out and outwards in
Im so crazy about you; its unscripted in my skin
Im quiet now, not like before
When I was outgoing and ended up laughing on the floor
The reason for my sudden silence is you
I try and deny to myself that I like you, but I still know its true
Youre sweet and kind
I like you so much; its getting to my mind
I cant tell my friends, let alone you
As everyday goes by, I think you through and through
How can we be together, when were so different?
Whatll your friends say?
If Im not with you now, I need to be one day
We have so much eye contact; I dont even need to pray
Pray for what, you ask.
For you to like me- its already a done task.
Stay beside me, so that Ill know
So that one day we can try and grow
I dont listen in school, or do anything Im assigned
That just proves that love really is blind.

Loss

She sits in a darkened room
Holding a pen in her hand
Writing on a plain white paper
Pouring out her heart
To someone who will never read
Her beautiful words
Her beautiful thoughts
Watching her breaks my heart
Although I don't see how its possible
I enter through her open window
Drift through the curtains
Her tears smear the ink
Her hand beings to tremble
With a cry of pain she tosses
It all aside, pen and paper
I wish I could comfort her
Gather her into my arms
Tell her I'm right here sweetheart,
I have never left
Cautiously I take steps toward her
Reaching out my hand to touch her
She lifts her head as if
My presence is detected
I rest both my hands on her shoulders
Breathe in the scent of her hair
She gasps and starts to cry even more
Turns to look as if she could see me
I wish I could cry
But it isn't possible
She whispers my name
Stare directly into my eyes
I don't care, I have to feel her,
Have to hold her, kiss her
Suddenly I feel her skin,
Beneath my hands
I can feel her.

In Shock

In shock watching world going by
Sometimes we laugh not to cry
Promising we won't ask for more
If we survive just this war
After while you don't feel the pain
Sitting here numb, watching the rain
Asking yourself what will bring war like this
Nuclear peace
Nuclear peace
Nuclear peace
SHOW MUST GO ON- that's what they say
Waiting for some better day
Feels the same like it did before
You feel they should tell you more
Maybe... we can set them free
Another chapter in history
Asking yourself: what will come after this?
Nuclear peace
Nuclear peace
Nuclear peace
Praying for the victory
Making brand new history
Marked by blood, tears and pain
Promising it won't be the same again
Watching warfare- in your room
Feeling down, depressed, in gloom
What brings war like this?
Nuclear peace
Nuclear peace
Nuclear peace
Feeling there was other way
Nothing left, so you just pray
When this war is done,
Theyll get everything they please
Nuclear peace
Nuclear peace
Just Nuclear peace

My Heart Shall Have No Boundaries

My heart shall have no boundaries
My eyes shall see no fear
For love is all around me
It's all that I can hear.
When I feel that no one loves me,
No one notices or cares
My being is protected
By you whom all beware.
For you who really loves me
I have not come to meet
But for the time that I am young,
I guess I'll have to wait.

Our Little Angel

Whenever we are in danger,
Cold and confused,
We know we will be saved.

Whenever we're embarrassed,
Wanting the ground to open up,
We know we will be saved.

Whenever we are crying,
Lost and in despair,
We know we will be saved.

Because you were, and still are,
Our Little Angel.

Love Alfie, Calissta, Destinee, and Dominique.

Miss You

You were the shining star,
You were the clear blue sky,
You were a sweetie girl,
That made me laugh and cry.

But now you're really gone,
I wish it would not be true,
But what oh what can I do?
Only say to you...

You were my first pen pal,
For that I love you much.
But it's not the only thing,
I still care so much.

Why did you have to die?
Nobody knows...
I thought it was a lie,
Oh God rescue our souls...

Wherever you are,
Whatever you think,
I hope you're okay,
And you will always sing.

You just have to remember,
That we're always here.
Our life isnt the same,
Without you being here.

~*~*~*In loving memory for Jenny Carter*~*~*~

Freedom

This poem is dedicated to my twin, Alfie. Thanks for giving me the freedom of your love.

Freedom is soaring over clouds,
Reaching beyond boundaries and breaking records.
Freedom is having the courage to say your mind,
No matter what anyone else wants.
Stepping over the limit.
Diving into crystal seas and just chilling.
A world free of walls and divides,
Where everyone's spaced out.
Running among fields of gold.
Being with your favorite person,
The one who loves you.
Setting your mind, body and soul free.
Free.

I Believed

I believed you were there
But then you didn't show
Why is there love?
Or life?
Why are we people here
To get heart broken
I don't think so
We are here to live
To be who were are
Don't hide it
Be proud of who you are
Don't let anyone abuse you
Or hurt you
You are who you are
You can't change that
You are the one to make the best of it
If you don't you'll just get hurt
Your life will be destroyed
Live it, Love it
LIFE!

Life is Short

Just the other week a kid at my high school was killed. That's number four on my list of people at my school who have diedtwo of them I knew.

Through the current of life
Lifes ebbing flow
Sometimes washes us ashore
But while in the water we can be a fish
We can leap and bound
The water is our life
When we get washed ashore
We need to make the earth our life
To flow with the wind instead of the water

But we have to know that we can never rejoin our water folly
So while we live one life we have to have all the joy out of it

Live your life
Excel in your dreams

Sitting In My Room

I sit in my room and start to cry
Only to realize I want to die
The pain fills my heart
The tears fill my eyes
I wonder how
Im gonna get by
And when I see the day is done
I realize that Im alone

Unending fights, unending pain
Unending tears, unending rain
Just go away, let me be
I only want to be happy
And when I see the day is done
I finally realize that Im alone

Loneliness is now a part of me
A part of my life...so blind I cant see
Try to get away but theres no where to run
Living this way has never been fun
So now I see the day is done
I finally deal with the fact that Im alone

Raining!

Its raining outside,
I close my eyes,
Compress my hand upon the window,
Lean my head on the wall,
Then I fall
On the floor, your love killed me as mine did yours,
I know you did wrong, Im willing to forgive,
But you moved as well as your love did too, thats why our love could never be true...
So its been raining the last couple of days.

Daddy

Daddy why do you disappear from me, I needed you so much.
Be it because I'm a little spoiled brat and also you can't stand me

Or else be it because you can't consider your eyes with the intention of I'm turning into such a good-looking young lady that you can't consider as yours

Daddy please inform me, what did I do to disserve this pain.
I have to know if I'd be capable of being in your strong arms,
One last time to remember all the good times that we shared.
I want you to know I need you and I love you. Please come back to me, daddy.

Why Can't I Trust the Ones So Near?

Why can't I trust the ones so near?
Why do I cry as you past by?
Why can't I believe you anymore?
Why do you lie it hurts me so?
Wasn't I supposedly your girl?
What did I do to you?
You made up stories and made me blue.
Why am I the one crying for you?
You caused the pain
You made me cry
Do you see the anger in my eyes?
Yet I'm the one dying inside
You show no pain
No mercy at all
I still wonder why I'm with you
You caused so much pain
And made me blue
But, yet I'm still in love with you

Love of My Life

I was lonely and you saved me
I was down and still you loved
Every second with you I cherish
Without you my life would perish
When I hear your beautiful sound, my heart drops to the ground
Because I know, I know with you love is true
I was blessed by your grace but also by your lovely face
My love for you is never fake,
If you were to leave, me my heart would break
And I know without you my life would be a mistake
So for that I thank you, my life is complete
And your name is my every heartbeat
I love you; you are the love of my life
So now for love I wont have to fight.

Sorry Boy

Sorry Boy, you got to get out my life.
I can't see me in the future as your wife!
Sorry Boy, you got to go
Cause you just made me feel so low!
Sorry Boy, I just don't love you any more
Cause you made my heart sore!

Boy, I loved you from the bottom of my heart
Our love together was like a sculpture of love by art!
Now you flirt with other girls and never look my way.
Man you used to make me feel like I was so stupid those days!

So I'm Sorry Boy, I'm now going to say goodbye
Cause the sadness of my heart made my love for you die!

But I will stay strong and never cry!

This I Write to You

The letters I write, the words I say,
But you never answer anything I do, write, or lay!
Oh I love you, oh so much,
Of the deep structure you do in the bottom of my heart, in the bottom of my soul,
I wish to kiss those pleasant roles!
The roles of love, kindness, and gentleness you do.
But I find one day you answered every question I asked, every questioned I say,
And you only answered I love you!
Come and runaway under the moonlight, under the sun,
I love you, I love you, I love you please come with me and run away with me some day!

To allow myself to love you is an already waiting

To allow myself to love you is an already waiting mistake.
Sometimes I want to do it, but it's a risk I don't want to take.
To love you must love yourself, and it's something that's hard for me to do.
However, I've got to learn how, though it's something I never knew.
Time will never tell what could happen to us, if my love for you will grow into trust.
It's crazy to lay something so precious into one's hands.
It isn't as though love is what I demand. Understand
Although we get along well and flirt on occasions, I'm caught up in a lie and I can't deny that.......... to allow myself to love you is an already waiting mistake and I don't want to be swallowed up in a heartbreak.
However, I guess it's a chance I just might take.

Her hair done perfect,

Her hair done perfect,
her nails just right,
but what is she like,
alone at night?
Is her smile still on?
Her hair still done?
Does she still think she is the only one,
that will be anyone in life?
Popular as she may be,
She is no more perfect then me!

Away, away to a place

Away, away to a place
Only I know
Upon my life
I base the facts
Hold them tight
And hold them close
There I escape
Reality once
Again and again
Pregnant with the knowledge
Truth be told
I hold the key
Though I can not see
How it was always meant
To be just you can me
And there I lie
Waiting for something
That will never come
Then I die

You were her ex

You were her ex
just a friend to me
there were things about you
that i didn't see
it was one night
when things changed
i lost my friend
but you remained
then all the sudden
you changed your mind
moved on with someone new
and left me behind
it took me a while
to think i was over you
but still i wish
it was just me and you.

Its hard to have a Dad who is you

Its hard to have Dad who is you
As soon as you started yelling, I knew
That I didnt want to be around someone who made me blue
Someone who compared me to every creature that roams the earth
Someone who pressed on what I was worth
You didnt know how it would be in between us at my birth
You didnt know Id yell at you
And scream at you
And slice your heart right through
I know youve had a hard old life, dad
But sometimes you make me so mad
I HATE YOU! I shout
Thats a word your knowledgeable about
I know I say really awful things about you
And some of them might be true
But right now, I just want you to know
That I think I love you.

The Poem of Days Gone By... A Lover's Sorrow

We walk beneath the moonlit sky
But that's a memory of days gone by
The days when we walked hand in hand
When we played together in the sand
We sat at foot of the old oak tree
We carved our initials inside a heart, plain to see
I said I'd love you forever
You were amazing, athletic, good looking and clever
Then you said your last good bye
All that day I did cry
Farewell my love
Sent from above
We walk beneath the moonlit sky
But that's a memory of days gone by

Everything Was A Ploy

Everything was a ploy
Everything was a sham
Every time I ran to you
I only broke more of the dam

Looking back
I don't know which to do
Say thank you
Or kill you

I was the one that ended it
Probably in the back of my mind I knew
It wasn't really me that ended it
It was probably you

Did we ever really start?
Or was it just an illusion?
I can't figure it out
You left me in a state of confusion

All the times you said those things
They were probably only lies
Now on certain days I sit
And all I can do is cry

Not from necessarily bad times
But because of the good
The way we used to be
If I could go back I would

I'd pretend you weren't lying
I'd pretend I wasn't dying
From all the secrets
We kept

I'd pretend everything was good
Everything was great
Every time I looked at you
I could hear church bells ring

I'd pretend you really loved me
I'd pretend I wasn't afraid
I'd pretend it wouldn't end
I'd pretend this wasn't just a game

I didn't know what to believe then
But as the years go by I think I am starting to know
The day you left you weren't really a friend
I think you were really a foe.

I may not have a lot of boyfriends either.

If One Day

If one day you feel you need to cry call me,
I don't promise to make you laugh but I can cry with you.
If one day you feel you like running away, call me.
I don't promise to beg you to stop but I can run with you.
If one day you don't feel like listening to anyone call me, I promise to be very quiet.
But if one day you call and there is no answer, come quick. Maybe I need you.
If I ever did anything to hurt you I'm sorry.
If I ever thought I was bigger or better than you I love you.
I'm writing this because what if tomorrow never comes.
What if I never get to say I'm sorry or I love you?
What if I never get to give you a BIG hug?
Because what if tomorrow never comes.

I have hurt you,
But you even more so me
Im a child of young love,
I thought you were sent from above
Your bright eyes and curly hair
Make you a Greek god in the night moonlight.
Your smile made my heart sing,
Your voice,
My tune,
Your touch,
My essence.
All you left me was torn ragged clothes,
Fulfill your dreams,
You weren't my hero as seemed.
Your soul,
My spirit
Your need,
My love.

I dont want to wake up alone, please just be there and hold me tight.
When Im sad, when Im blue, I just want to see your smile,
Why can't you be hear to stay, try to love me for a while.
I would climb a mountain, swim the see, and walk the hottest desert sand,
Just to have you care for a moment, just to have you understand.
There's nothing I wouldn't do for you, there's not a risk I wouldnt take,
All I want is to be with you, but I really dont want my heart to break.
All I'm asking for is a chance, just one single try,
I want to give you my heart, but please don't make me cry.
I would give the you the world; I would give you myself entirely,
I'll do anything to make you happy, just say you'll be with me.
Even if it will never happen, there is something you must know,
It is not going to be easy, to just want to let you go.
All I want is your arms around me; I want your whispers in my ear,
I want you to be there for me, just for a moment holding me near.
So please try to understand, I no longer wish to cry,
I'm not asking for the world, I am only asking for a try.
e up alone, please just be there and hold me tight.
Wen im sad, wen im blue, i just want to see ur smile,
Why can't you be hear to stay, try to love me for awhile.
I would climb a mountain, swim the see, walk the hottest desert sand,
just to have u care for a moment, just to have u understand.
There's nothing i wouldn't do for u, there's not a risk i wouldnt take,
All i want is to be with u, but i really dont want my heart to brake.
All I'm asking for is a chance, just one single try,
I want to give you my heart, but please don't make me cry.
I would give the you the world, I would give you myself entirely,
I'll do anything to make you happy, just say you'll be with me.
Even if it will never happen, there is something you must know,
It is not going to be easy, to just want to let you go.
All i want is your arms around me, I want your whispers in my ear,
I want you to be there for me, just for a moment hold me near.
So please try to understand, I no longer wish to cry,
I'm not asking for the world, I am only asking for a try.

Walking Down the Hall...

I walk down the hall
With a smile on my face
For today is the day
That I will embrace
Your love
But it doesnt happen
No not for me
Shes too pretty
And laughs and says "your no competition for me."
I run down the hall
Crying oh so hard
When I trip and fall
And there you are
With your perfect smile, hair, laugh and everything else
For you are perfect
You help me pick my things up
And the next thing you know
Im being asked out
I agree of coarse
And the girl snorts
And said that hes too good for someone like me
I ignore her
And have fun for once
And if only, if only
He wasnt such a dick
Hed still be here with me
But he paid the price
That was very high
That cost him his death
What was this oh so terrible thing?
Its the price you pay
When you drink and drive
And now I wish he wee here with me
His perfect smile is old and gray
And my happiness has faded away
But thats the price he made
To not just him
But also to me.

Beginning of a New Day

This is the beginning of a new day I can waste it or use it for good.
The things I do today are important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes this day will be gone forever.
Leaving in its place what I traded for it,
I want it to be gain not loss, good not evil, success not failure.
In order to do that I should not forget the price I paid for today.

ETERNITY***

I would sleep at night
And think of you
I would look at you and see no truth
I would wish to hold you all night long
But something somehow
Just went wrong
I would close my eyes and shed a tear
And still Id do it cuz youre not here
I now wish some how you'd comfort me
Reconsider how we'd be
I love you more then I can say
I love you boy more each day!

Secret Thoughts

I hold it true that thoughts are things
Endowed with bodies, breath, and wings,
And that we send them forth to fill
The world with good results-or ill.

That which we call our secret thought
Speeds to the earth's remotest spot,
And leaves its blessings or its woes
Like tracks behind it as it goes.

Santa Clause

A little girl, all snug and asleep,
Wakes up suddenly but doesnt make a peep.
Its a little bit scary on the couch out here,
But if she wants to see Santa shell get over her fear.
Uncomfortable, she turns over at a slow pace,
And the sight before her brings a smile to her face.
Theres a man with a red suit, a red hat too,
But black are his belt and his clunky boots.
He is putting toys under the Christmas tree,
Just as he is supposed to be.
Then he turns around and catches sight of her,
She sees him too and he looks familiar.
She shrugs it off and smiles at him,
He lets out a sigh and gives a big grin.
Then he whispers to her, Go up to your room,
Go to sleep; besides, Ill be leaving soon.
So she gives him a hug and goes up to her bed,
Pulls back the covers and lays down her head.
After only a few minutes shes out like a light,
Until the next morning when she wakes to the sight.
Of the sun shining brightly through her window,
Its Christmas morning finally she knows.
She runs to her parents room and sees a strange sight,
She is very confused; this cant be right.
Santa is lying there in Daddys place,
She thinks oh no; it must be a mistake.
Then her mouth opens wide as she realizes its not so,
It is daddy, theres no Santa; Santas just a show.
Now its 20 years later, and the not so little girl smiles,
At the memory she is having, while walking down store aisles.
Shes now buying presents for her little girl,
Who believes in the Santa of a childs fantasy world.

He's Gone

He's gone.
I'm all alone.
Left in the shadows of a land unknown.
He's not there for me anymore,
He does not love me anymore.
It hurt real bad and I was sad.
But the sun came out, and now the rain is gone.
The pain has left my once heavy heart,
And now my real true love can come to me.

Everything and More

She isn't Wonder Woman,
Or a super star,
But she's everything to me, and more.

She can't be in two places at once,
But she's always there for me,
Like a beautiful poem,
Engraved on your heart for eternity.

She's smart,
Brave,
Funny,
And strong,
But she's more than that,
Shes my mom.

Rainbows

Rainbows are born with a certain grace and power. Their mother is the rain. As their mother passes on, they come to life with peace and wonder about the world. They twinkle and glide all the way across the wide-open space of the sky; they get their growth by the warm rich heat of the sun. A rainbow likes to shine its long open smile around the state and wave to everyone below. Even though rainbows do not speak, there is always a sense of beauty, love, and a sense of comfort and cherished memories. They always have such grace. Very calm and quiet the rainbows watch and wait for a new day to come...rainbows are so patient. Just imagine what a rainbow might see all the way up where the birds fly. I think you may find that this is true: rainbows see planes zooming, clouds waving and maybe even a seagull saying, "HELLO." I believe in a rainbow's true human-like side, you will be filled with luck all trough your life. Even though a rainbow's life is not very long, they will always be filled with color deep inside each and every heart. -Nicole from CT

When I Look Up

I try to fight.
But I can't hide,
How I feel inside.

Sometimes I just want to throw up.
I just want to tell all the
Those people to just shut-up.
Most people say don't give up,
And I just stand and say, "WHAT?"
Like Im stuck,
Like a bug in a spider's web.
I try to shed all the smooth and sticky silk off.
But when I look up
All I see is darkness.

Why...

Why does he hurt me so?
Why does he push me to the ground?
Why does he show he likes me?
Why does he actually not?
Why does he hang with me?
Why does he stay with the gang?
Why does he get close to me?
Why does he then push me away?
Why does he do all that and more?
Why can't I answer the questions I ask myself?
But yet I still love him

I doubt u will read this Jeremy so I can say that I do love u with all my heart.

What Being a Teenage Girl is Like

Being a teenage girl is:
Beating up the bully at school just so you won't feel inferior,
Wishing you had siblings until you go to your best friend's nine person house,
Crying yourself to sleep because you don't have a boyfriend,
Wishing you were taller than your mom just so you could say you were,
Sucking your stomach in when you're in the girl's locker room,
Following hot guys around in the mall and throwing a mini party when they follow you,
Hating algebra, but loving the cute male teacher,
Trying to find yourself, but getting lost in the clutter of your room,
Looking in the mirror to see the flaws, not the beauty,
Looking forward to getting your license but despising the restrictions,
Spending hours in front of the mirror just to put on make-up,
Feeling jealous of every other girl on the face of the earth for some strange and unknown reason,
Thinking that are a freak because the loner at school with the black duffel bag likes you,
Hating yourself for not asking your crush out,
Realizing that teenage guys suck and you can totally live without them,
Discovering that life has a lot to offer but sometimes serves a little crud with it,
Finally knowing who you are and want to be!
Love,
Another teenage girl

Alone Again

I try to tell you but its no good,
No one cares and no one should.
Alone in my room is where I should stay
Cuz right now I hate daylight,
But its just another day.
Screaming out loud,
But no one can hear
Im sick of this huge cloud of fear.
I better shut up,
And you now know,
What its liketo live in this...show.

(Im actually 11, not 13)

When That Sad Day Comes

When that sad day comes
You know the day you say good-bye
Will be the saddest day I have ever been through
The saddest day of my life
I would probably cry my self to sleep every single night
And ask my self why you left me
And why you said good-bye
Was it because of all da fights?
Or because we lived so far away
Or was it because you couldnt hold me in your arms every single day
I hope that day does not come soon
I hope that you will stay
Because I love you with all my heart every minute, every hour, of every single day

Friendship

Friendship is more important than words can express.
Friends help you when you're stressed.

We can sometimes fight.
But one of us has got to be right.

We should stick together.
Because you KNOW will be friends forever.

You and me. Us and we.
We have been friends forever so don't flee.

Just you and me.

Friendship is LOVE.
Which I will ALWAYS put above.

Dedicated to Christine, my best friend since kindergarten.

Space

I need my own room and space

Nine kids.Three bedrooms.
You do the math.

I don't get time alone.
It's hard to take a bath!

Little brothers and little
sisters all about.

I want to SCREAM!
I want to SHOUT!

But it's right.
Just get out of my face!

I love you all.
But I need my space.
