The Prejudice Cow

The Prejudice Cow

I've never seen a purple cow
I never hope to see one.
But I would rather see it anyhow
Thank God I couldn't be one.

The Prejudice Moose

The Prejudice Moose

I've never seen a yellow moose.
Nor could I be one.
But I thank God that I'm not a fraud.
And never hope to be one.

I saw you one day

I saw you one day.
That day my life changed.
I started to walk towards you
To tell you my feelings are true.
I told him everything and more.
He laughed in my face till it was sore.
I cried rivers and lakes.
Loving him was a big mistake.

Sitting in a dark room

Sitting in a dark room
Looking at the stars
Knowing that you're with me
Knowing that you are

Slipping away
There's nothing I can do
Just listening to your breathing
Just looking at you.

And I think that life is ending
But life has just begun
And even the moon is rising
I know that somewhere there's a sun.

Austin

Austin,
I always thought that you were cute.
I always thought that you were funny.
I always thought that maybe you liked me?
Yeah, that's true, I heard it 2day.
I like you back, but could you be the one?
Would it work?
Would it be meaningful and last forever?
I don't know, I'm asking you.
But remember, what I'm saying is true.
I think I love you.
I think I do.

First Loves.

First Loves.

Always so sweet,
Always so true.
I find myself in
Your arms every day
I love you like
Nobody does.
Longing for
The same feeling
I give each day.
You know it's
True how much You
Weigh.
I just want to
Tell you,
First Love,
That you will always be
The legend of my life!

Truly in love

Truly in love
I was truly in love what this boy. Well I thought I was. He hurt me bad, he broke my heart. So many times you said you would never do it again. I told you that I could never love again. But it's impossible for me not to love you. Your eyes, your hair, everything I love. People tell me not to love someone like you, but I say that I am truly in love. Some times I think that youre truly in love, but then you hurt me again. That was the last time you hurt me. Now youre the one that is "truly in love"

Why can't you see?

Why cant you see?
I stare at you, look at me, look at me.
Why can't you see that you're all I want? Your words seem to be spoken by angels, and without you I am nothing.
I dream of you, I see your dark brown eyes twinkling with laughter. I long to wrap my arms around you, but I wake in a bed drained of love.
Why can't you see that I love you with all my heart?
The day you told me of your girlfriend, I wished it could all have been different. I wished I had never met you, never loved, and needed you. But I do and you just can't see.

Give me a chance
With my heart so true

And I still do

They

They

They are always perfect
The are all skinner than you,
Prettier than you,
Smarter than you.

They all judge you,
They all stare at you,
Constantly watching
All your doings.

They have the ideal nose,
They have the softest hair,
Which is nothing
Like what you have.

They fight inside,
They struggle too.
Feeling the same
Way you do.

Love...

Love...
Gods unfailing love
Led to his sacrifice
The blood that Jesus paid
The holiness of Christ

Gods amazing love
Led to amazing grace
So that the day we die
We can see his face

Gods eternal love
Led to eternal life
Jesus gave himself
Sin cut like a knife

Gods all knowing love
Led to him knowing us
Jesus holds our life
We bond with him in trust

Gods great love for us
Led to an awesome way
That we can be with him
Every single day

Crystal Clear

Crystal Clear

I wanted to love.
And you came along.
Risen from the earth,
Singing your song.

Our love was crystal clear

I was afraid to get hurt,
You told me not to bother.
That you would be by my side,
Forever and ever.

I trusted you so crystal clear

But then rain came,
And I started to fall,
You didnt pick me up,
No, you left me on the floor.

I was broken, millions of crystal, clear, transparent pieces

But I helped myself.
Turned around,
Walked away.
Learnt form my mistakes.

That what we had was crystal clear.

Empty.

Saturday...

Saturday...

Wake up at nine.
Dont brush my hair.
Eat 15 pancakes,
because I dont really care.

Watch TV until 12.
Then talk on the phone.
Mom goes out to work.
So Im all alone.

Eat like a pig.
Then sleep in my bed.
Im lost in my dream,
must look like Im dead.

Wake up from the sound
of the phone calling me.
I dont want to answer.
JUST LET ME BE.

But soon I wake up
and Im eating Pringles with dip.
Im getting so big.
Ill turn into a chip.

Now its about 4,
and my mom on her way.
I invite my neighbor over,
so we can play

When my mom gets home.
My friend goes home too.
I eat pizza for dinner,
and have dessert too.

Now its almost 7.
And Im flipping through the tube.
I see lots of shows,
a commercial for game-cube.

Now Im getting sleepy,
so I go get ready for bed.
And fall asleep,
all the dreams in my head.

This is my Saturday.
I sleep all the time.
I eat like a pig,
then tell it in a rhyme.

Romance takes a chance

Romance takes a chance

Romance is so chancy!
It makes lovers feel ancy
Want to marry, they all say
Lets get marries every day!
Romance takes a leap.
It also takes a chance!
Dont you want to marry, they say.
Marry every day and always!
Romance takes a leap,
To also takes a chance

Mothers crying,

Mothers crying,
fathers strong and resolute,
Children don't know what to do.

I am weeping - can you feel me?
I am calling - do you hear?
I am falling-
who will catch me,
who will catch me when I fall?

IF

If

If the song I sang and the words I said
Rang out loud and clear,
Does that mean you'd listen,
And show me that you hear?
If the sky fell down on me,
And buried me alive,
Would you lift up every cloud,
Just so I'd survive?
If these wings should turn and fly,
And lift me off the land,
Could you pull my feet back down,
And simply hold my hand?
If I showed you who I was,
And took you on my path,
Would you shower me with praise,
Or turn away and laugh?
If someday my poisoned soul,
Should bear another chance,
I need you to look down on me,
For I'm not the person you ask.

Can't go

Can't go
In the stable, stamping and grunting, a special horse awaits me.
But I know I can't leave, leaving them would kill me;
I know that sometimes I want to go because they make me cry;
But then I think to my self, my mom and sister fight all the time.
It will be a whole lot worse if I leave;
This I know is true;
If the world is this bad inside
Then outside the sky musn't be so blue.
Besides I think of those happy memories and all the times we've shared.
It's only my sister who's abusive;
Of my mom I'm not scared.
Ive talked to her millions of times;
But she won't listen to me;
I'm just a girl, abused by my sister;
The sister I love,
yearning to break free.

Age 10

I Once Loved

I Once Loved

Dawn broke and we fluttered our wings,
Angelic babies, born to be free.
You took my hand and held it gently,
And guided me through the dead.

I loved you in the morning

Summer came and we basked in the light,
Frolicking in the fields where sunflowers grew.
You held me in your arms and whispered in my ear,
I will always be there for you

I loved you at noon

The light was dying and we sat and stared,
Side by side, at the ends of the world.
You cupped my face and kissed it sweetly,
Taking the breath out of me.

I loved you in the evening

Darkness came and we lost our way,
Tumbling, stumbling, feeling desperate.
I stood but fell; my wings were shattered,
We cried for help, but help would not come.

You took off with your wings,
But I stood my ground.
Found the strength in my feet,
Learnt to walk lifes path.

We went our own separate ways.

I lost you in the night.

~*+~ Give it All to Love ~*+~

~*+~ Give it All to Love ~*+~

For L.

I love, but yet am force to seem to hate,
I long, but am too shy to speak of faith.
I dream, but what dost make hopes real?
I seek, but with no lead I blindly stumble.

But I know I might just might- achieve,
So give it all to love.

Thou sweet Ceclia, may heaven let us men live and love.

Thou sweet Ceclia, may heaven let us men live and love,
And though the sager sort our deeds reprove,
Let us not weigh them. Heavens great lamps do dive
Into their west, and straight again revive.
But, soon as once set is our little light,
Then must we sleep one ever-during night.

If all would lead their lives in love like me,
Then bloody swords and armour should not be;
No drum or trumpet peaceful sleeps should move,
Unless alarm came from the camp of love:
But fools do live and waste their little light,
And seek with pain their ever-during night.

When timely death my life and fortune ends,
Let not my hearse be vexed with mourning friends,
But let all lovers rich in triumph come
And with sweet pastimes grace my happy tomb:
So Ceclia, close up thou your little light,
And crown all your ever-during nights with love.

Reading all these poems

Reading all these poems
Written from hearts and from dreams,
Lots of pain lots of hurt
From their low self esteem.
All these girls expressing
Feelings of tomorrow,
It seems only girls
Know of joy and of sorrow.
If only their lovers saw
All these truths and all these lies,
And what is in their hearts
Maybe they would realize...
Maybe they would see how much we hurt
Or how much we care,
But that doesn't seem to happen
Only lovers see the unfair
Only lovers see the people
Only lovers see the souls
Only lovers are not blind
Only lovers see the holes.
The writers of these poems
Over all the many years
Are the only ones who are brave
To write down their hopes and fears.
And only other lovers
Read what other lovers wrote
And nothing seems to get out
Where is it, where is hope?
If the world was exposed to
What we lovers see and feel,
I wonder how they would take
The whole ordeal.
Would they bomb it or kill it
Or expose it 'cause it's rare?
How can they not notice
What is everywhere?
Only we lovers are the ones that feel
Only we lovers are the ones who heal
Only we lovers take others pain
And what have we lovers gained?
Heh. Poetry...

Falling

Falling

I'm risking it all
I answered yes to your date
Everything went wrong
You came late
In fact, you never came
I sat on my porch
And thought of this game
It's insane how you treated me
Now I see
We probably will never be
Not even in my fantasies
But when you are near me
I'm falling
I'm calling for help
While my heart seems to yelp
Now it seems like everything is tangled in kelp
Help me
I'm falling
Beep, beep
I hit the snooze button
Now I see
We never were meant to be
No more thoughts of why that can't be me with you
Beep beep
My alarm clock is at it again
So this never happened
It was all a dream
But yet I still see
While I'm falling...
Falling...
I'm catching myself
I'm a whole again

Who made all?

Who made all
The birds and the bees?
The flowers and trees?
The moon up above that all love,
The sun so bright that gives light.
All these things big and small, God made them all.

Animals, Animals, Oh! How I love Animals!

Animals, Animals, Oh! How I love Animals!
Theyre cute and theyre cuddly
I love the way their baby fur feels so fuzzily!
They're so fun and they're so sweet
And theyre funny from their heads to their feet.
Animals, Animals, Oh! How I love Animals!
Some are mean and some are nice,
Some are made of sugar and some of spice.
Animals, Animals, Oh! How I love Animals!
I love them from their brains to their spines,
But the ones I love best of all those, are mine.

"God is my dad"

"God is My Dad"
I can't see Him nor I can touch Him, but I know for sure He reminds me of something!
Someone who hears you when you're in despair; He never fails to show that He cares.
I call him 'Dad,' when you know Him as 'God.'
He's always there when I need Him; And with all His works I can't repay Him.
All I can say is that "I love you, God," for I know I can trust You beacause You're also my dad.

Standing there, over the moon and shining stars,

Standing there, over the moon and shining stars,
Her mane is as clear as crystal, her body as soft as silk
Her eyes are twinking and diamond- like
Her tail as shiny as glass,
Her hooves as fragile as china,
If you walk past you will feel
The gift you are given
Of magic in the air
If you ever to see her,
You will notice her horn,
Twisted and pearl texture, she is a unicorn.

You are always calm

You are always calm
like the calm blue sea.
But when you're outraged,
you are like the tossing waves.

Love is so tragic with you,
but I chose it.
I want to be with you.
To touch your hair,
kiss your lips,
is all I want.

Please give me all of this...
and I'll give you my heart...

White puffs of hope

White puffs of hope
rain on my soul,
used to know myself,
lost all control.
Never meant to hurt you.
I suppose this is goodbye,
watching you walk away,
I'm left alone to cry.
I love you.

Betrayed

I was waiting
for you to come.
We always hung out,
and had a lot of fun.
But then one day
I was talking to my guy friend
and you looked angry.
I looked away,
But you started to call me names.
Then one day
you slapped me,
and it was over.

A New Kind Of Sadness

I am just so unhappy,
and I don't know why.
I can't bear this pain,
but I refuse to cry.
It's a new kind of sadness.
I don't know what I'm yearning for.
Is it love, glory, hope?
I don't know why I'm miserable anymore.
When I watch movies or read stories,
I see the happy ending there.
Why can't I have that kind of joy?
I want to escape, but to where?
Just when I think the rain may stop falling,
The clouds decide to stay.
My depression won't leave me alone,
And happiness is far away.

"I believe"

"I believe"
I believe in faries
The dust from their wings gives us hope
I believe in Hope
That we all have it in our hearts
I believe in Happiness
That we all have it in our souls although at times its hard to find.
I believe in a Higher Power
That someone is watching over us
I believe in the Goddess
That She is watching over us
I believe in Magic
We all need a little magic in our lives
I believe in Innocence
We're all still innocent in our own ways
I believe in Imagination
Where are we without it
I believe in You
That we'll find a way
But most importantly is that
I believe in Love
We all need love
What do you believe in?

I Know

I know,
I know I messed up things between me and you.
I know you probably think of me as a fool.
I know I was wrong for what I did,
but love was not on my mind.
I felt as if I didn't deserve you
but I feel that I made a bad choice
when I fell in love with the wrong boy.
That boy should have been you
because you actually cared.
I know that you are probably tired of hearing me say
that I actually did love you.
I was a fool,
I was so dumb,
I didn't mean it,
I was just young.
I know you cared but I was scared to love you back
but I know I see that you really loved me
and I gave all that away.
And now you are gone.
I wish you could know that
I know I was wrong.
I wish that you could be
Back with me
I would prove to you that I actually do love you.
Maybe one day I could have it all back,
maybe one day you could see that I love you back.
I was so wrong to leave you alone,
but I was lost and so confused
But I wish I wouldn't have done that to you.
I hope you can forgive me for what I did,
I hope you can forget all that mean things I said,
Because I love you so very much.
And if you could see
that I really do
because I don't want you as a friend,
I want you as my love,
I want you in my life,
I want you to be mine,
And if you could feel how sorry I am,
maybe you would take me back.
But I understand if you don't want to,
Because I messed up me and you.
I just wanted to show you I'm sorry,
But maybe you have moved on,
but you are always in my heart,
I love you so much.
Thank you for being the man that you are,
because if it wasn't for you I wouldn't be able
To be what I am today.
Thank you so much and I wish you would forgive me
but I geuss that won't happen.
Because it seems your not listening.

I know We Can't Be Together

Dear Finn,
I know we can't be together.
But in my heart, we'll stay together.
This is because of my best friend.
But I will always love you babe.

That smile you give me at those clubs.
My heart melted so.
But I know it will hurt when we part forever.
But in my mind, we are together.

So bye bye babe!
Have a good time with my mate.
Now it's too late.
See you in a different light in school tomorrow.

Do you really love me?

Do you really love me
do you really love me
I thought you did
you were my everything
The prefect guy
I thought we would be together for a very long time
I guess I was wrong
because you were not the one
you were special to me in every way and your love can't be replaced but I don't want you in my life
untill you can treat me right
but I thank you because you taught me a lesson
you can't trust you best friend with your man
no matter what the case, because females are just as low down as men and I mean your best friend.

Who really cares?

Who really cares
When I talk what I feel
Or what I say
Nobody nods really

Who wants to take the time to understand
I would like someone to hear me with some empathy
I can't find
Nobody nods really

Maybe am invisable to the world
Does anyone in the world even think of me
As more than just a hopless cause
Maybe the world is not my block, my stoop, my life, my dreams, my anything

Who wants to help
Mama, but shes so tired
Papa, oh your not here
Am alone in a big empty space
With nobody nods really

Sometime you feel tired, feel weak

Sometimes you feel tired, feel weak
And when you feel weak
You feel like you wanna just give up
But you've got to search within you
And just pull that stuff out of you
And get that motivation
To not give up
And not be a quitter
No matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collaspe

To me, you're my everything

To me, you're my everything
To you
I'm nothing
Not even a friend
You walked out on me when I needed you to live
You're my air
I need you in order to survive
You make my world go round
But I make no difference to you
When you left me
I was lost
I didn't know what to do except miss you
Thinking of you every moment of my life
Losing you makes me wonder what should I do
You found your girl
You know what is happiness when you're with her
But
Without you
I only know what is called loneliness
Sad
Hurt
Depressed
And lastly
I've learnt how to cry
I couldn't forget you no matter what
Tried many ways
But to no avail
Now all alone in my world
Crying everyday in darkness
Life without you is miserable
Or should I say meaningless
I miss your sweet smile
And your boyish voice
I just want to stay by you as a friend
Seeing you happy means a whole lot to me
Why did you leave just like that?
Now
I see you on the streets
You're like a stranger to me
Your face didn't even twitch or anything
Walking away
Leaving me behind crying deep inside

I don't know what I've been told

I don't know what I've been told
Builders' bums are made of gold
And as we march 'round this blue pool
We're gonna jump in like fools
And when we finally get out
Were gonna run, and jump about
Then I'm gonna push you
And your gonna fall in the pool blue
Now it is lunch time so I better go
Where we are eating I do not know
But I really fancy some pie
So 'til l8ter bye bye!

I lived in a shadow

I lived in a shadow
It was full of nightmares
And I couldn't go to sleep
All the days collided
I thought I was stuck
In someone else's life
So I stepped out into a new world
To find my new identity.
Oh my life is soo good
And my past is in the past.

Seeing you again

Seeing you again

I still wonder what
The days will bring
Sitting here still
Wondering
All those deepest
Thoughts were strong
I know I can't linger
On
But I will be seeing you
Again, and know that
I will never forget
Staring in your eyes
I still fantisize
Me and you in dark blue sky
Hoping some day I will
Feel twisted inside

I know that this can't
Go on
All my wishes are turning
Into wrong
But when I hear your voice
I know I'm safe
I can't see the things
That are meant to be this way.
Remembering you is all I could
See that you are a special
Friend to me.

April Funks.
She has no funk guts.
Why do poeple come for her attitude anyway.
Nobody needs her.
I wish she would come to her sense one day.
She would call poeople gay.
But that's not O. K.
She hates them Anyway.

"Hate"

"Hate"
Hate, I wish it would go away.
Make people listen to us,
Or they're is no us.
Hate, hate, Hate,
Let's break free.
Forget the way people hate,
Let's go through the gate.
Let's have our way for new way.
Forget the hate.
We have a way.
You can't come our way.
We know our way.
Let it be.
Let's start a new day.

Crystal Clear

Crystal Clear

I wanted to love.
And you came along.
Risen from the earth,
Singing your song.

Our love was crystal clear

I was afraid to get hurt,
You told me not to bother.
That you would be by my side,
Forever and ever.

I trusted you so crystal clear

But then rain came,
And I started to fall,
You didnt pick me up,
No, you left me on the floor.

I was broken, millions of crystal, clear, transparent pieces

But I helped myself.
Turned around,
Walked away.
Learnt form my mistakes.

That what we had was crystal clear.

Empty.

Love and Lost

Love and Lost

Dawn broke and we fluttered our wings,
Angelic babies, born to be free.
He took my hand and held it gently,
And guided me through the dead.

I loved you in the morning

Summer came and we basked in the light,
Frolicking in the fields where sunflowers grew.
He held me in his arms and whispered in my ear,
I will always love you

I loved you at noon

The light was dying and we sat and stared,
Side by side, at the ends of the world.
He cupped my face and kissed it sweetly,
Taking the breath out of me.

I loved you in the evening

Darkness came and we lost our way,
Tumbling, stumbling, feeling desperate.
I stood but fell; my wings were shattered,
We cried for help, but help would not come.

You took off with your wings,
But I stood my ground.
Found the strength in my feet,
Learnt to walk lifes path.

We went our own separate ways.

I lost you in the night.

I Cannot Love

I Cannot Love

I cannot love,
My hearts too cold.
But when I saw you,
I instantly froze.

I saw your eyes, your skin, your hair
Dumbfounded, I silently stared.
My jaw was stuck, my brain went fuzzy
And I long for you, you, you, alone.

I need your love,
The warmth from your soul.
That might just thaw me,
And my jaded heart.

For L.

I love, but yet am forced to seem to hate,
I long, but am too shy to speak of faith.
I dream, but what dost make hopes real?
I seek, but with no lead I blindly stumble.

But I know I might just might- achieve,
So give it all to love.

Moving Quickly to my Space on the Stage

Moving quickly to my space on the stage,
Smiling and praying I look good,
Judges sitting, watching, waiting.
I look at my audience,
I take my position,
Signaling to the lady to start the music,
I wait.
It seems like forever.
Finally, the music starts.
My first move is an Arabesque.
I lift my right leg up behind my back and stretch my arms out straight.
I balance for a second, and here comes my favorite part!

I raise onto point, lift my head up high and pirrouette, Twirling my arms above my head,
Moving gracefully I drag my left foot behind me as I Take one step forward.
Pas De Chat,
Port De Bras,
Point to the left,
Point to the right.

And my finishing position,
The Grand Jete!

The music finishes,
And the judges clap.
The lady smiles and says I was brilliant.
A man Stands up.
I'm soo nervous that I am shaking.
He tells me not to worry.
I wonder what he means by that.
When out of the blue he shouts, pass!!
I Squeal with delight and jump for joy!

My mom is so pround when I tell her.
She tells everyone she meets,
"My Daughter's A Ballerina!!"

The music

The music

Listen to the music.
Different songs give different moods.
Some make you want to dance.
Some make you want to cry.
Each song carries a message,
From the writers past or future,
Or dreams and fantasy.
Music is inspiring.
Listen to the music.
Different songs give different moods.

Living a Mime's Life

Living a mime's life,
Trapped inside a glass box,
I'm drawn near,
And then it locks.

Try to scream and shout,
People look in,
But I can't speak out,
Sanity's wearing thin.

Pull myself up,
Just to fall back down,
Pretend to be what I'm not,
Only to end up a clown.

Take me away,
Take my hand,
Lead me a stray,
Help me to understand.

I try to change,
And not be so shy,
I can never say the words,
And leave you wondering why.

Returning Memories of Tears I've Shed

Returning memories of tears I've shed,
As raindrops fall upon my head,
Wash away my thoughts of you,
And try to think of someone new.

Was there something I never said,
In fear of my face turning bright red?
A hope that we could be meant to be,
But now I'm drowning in my misery.

Have picked up the pieces to move on before,
I guess I can do it at least once more.
It's not just you, don't get me wrong,
I've begun to think, with you, I don't belong.

If you don't like me for who I am,
Fine, go off with one of them,
Because perfect is a far cry from me,
But frankly, that's not who I want to be.

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day,
What good is it for anyway?
A day in honor of love,
Or my apparent lack of.

Send cards that are so sappy.
Everyone around me looking so happy.
A dozen roses he sends to you,
Instead with each one, I become more blue

He asks you to be his Valentine,
But instead of yours, he should be mine.
Found someone right for me,
Though all he does is cause me misery.

Thought he was perfect, but I was blind.
I've tried, I can't quite change my mind.
Keep telling myself, better luck next year,
But it will be just the same I fear.

We Told You We Were In Love

We told you we were in love.
You said it was not true.
You said we were to young to be in love,
But this is something our relationship will not prove.

He is my heart.
I will love him forever.
Cherish him always,
Depart with him never

So, see we're not to young to be in love.
We will prove you wrong.
You will see it too someday,
When you hear our wedding song

We were meant to be together,
You and I,
Loving each other always
Untill we die.

Mother Where Are You

Tears fall from my eyes,
Plip plop to the ground.
You aren't there to wipe them away.
Mother where are you?
The pain is never gone.
Mother I need you, I need to be safe from life's harm.
Dad still cries at night and my brother does too.
No one has experienced this pain I'm going through.
Mother where are you?
I still cry out at night.
Mother where are you?
Please turn on the light!
Im always searching the skies in hope that I will find you.
The only question I ever ask is:
Mother, where are you?

..We Could've Been Together...

"You are my sun,
You are my earth."
I never really knew
What those words
Meant until I saw you.
I have never really liked
A white guy before.
Call me racist,
But for you it doesn't matter.
I always knew you liked me,
But I never did anything about it.
Now I find myself thinking about you.
Wondering how we could've been together.
Man, I really wish I did something about it.
Why did I have to be so shy?
Why didn't I just tell you that I liked you?
All of these questions
Float thrugh my mind.
Baby,
We could've been together.
Now I just have to remember,
One thing,
True love
Lasts
Forever...

And my heartbeats racing
Cause loving you is beautiful*
When you're so irresistible ((:

You are all I need to get me

Like a falling star I fell for you*
You have taught me how to love
An angel sent from high above*
Now I know that all I need is you;

You're all I ever wanted;
You're the sweetest little thing on earth.

Lots of love,

Rain falling down, out of my eyes

Rain falling down, out of my eyes
And I'm a wondering why, you had to say goodbye
And leave me baby, all alone in my life

As I think back, when you were around
And we were together
We didn't care about the weather
'Cause baby we were together

But now that your gone, I have to say
The rain is falling, down each and every day
Out of my eyes, and I'm wondering why (wondering why)

Rain falling down, out of my eyes
And I'm a wondering why, you had to say goodbye
And leave me baby, all alone in my life
And I am wondering why

Well it's cold outside, and it's not summer anymore
And so I have to go inside, and shut the door
Perhaps if you were here, the weather wouldn't seem as bad
But since you've been gone, I've been so very sad

Rain falling down, out of my eyes baby
And I'm a wondering why

I've Been Through My Emotional Battles

I've been through my emotional battles and I have fought the good fight just so that I could continue to have you in my life. Friends have turned me away because of my love for you, but now it seems you have turned me away and I don't know what to do. You used to hug me and I would feel so safe, but now it seems that you don't even love me or care, and it hurts so deep inside. All I want is for you to hug me and care for me like you used to. That would be my dream, and I hope and pray that my wish comes true.

Don't

If you want to act mad,
Then I don't mind.
If you want to blow up,
I'll still be kind.
But never tell me
I'm not who I am,
Because ill blow up
And I'll say d***.
Because you messed up,
That much is true,
Because I'm not only the girl,
You thought you knew.
I know things that I shouldn't
And I've gone through things
That you thought I couldn't.
You tell me you love me,
And then you deceive me,
You tell me you will never hurt me,
Yet I never see.
You hurt me all the time.
No questions should you ask
Because I hide behind my mask.
It protects me from the way I feel
And makes me think,
This can't be real!
But I know it is
And I wont put up with it.
So if you do it again,
You're just going to sit
Thinking what did I do?
That was all s***.
You know it was true,
So stop saying it wasn't.

Maybe

Maybe

Mabye I'm me,
Maybe I'm you.
My identity is unknown,
Retold,
Many times.
Truth is lost in a myth.
Is that me,
Or is it you?
Walking in the midst of maybe,
Drowning in the thoughts that fill my head.
Who am I?
Wandering in a haze,
Dazed.
What will I come to be?
Just a myth, or a story?
Never knowing,
Never told.
Now as I grow old,
I hold the knowledge that I need.
I have planted a seed
To grow into something new.
And as it grew,
It was confused
As I once was.
It has that knowledge stored away,
To stay,
Until that time has come.
To know,
To grow,
To plant that seed.
And on it will see,
Into the yonder.
And the future will behold
The mysteries
That have yet to be told.

Am I that annoying?
Do I bother you
Too much to handle?

You can't say stop,
You can't be around me
Without people getting jealous?

Is that it?
Because people are mad,
They think I like you,
Because you're my bestfriend.

More then a bestfriend,
You're like a brother,
I trust you with everything,
But you don't feel the same.

I'm just that girl that you know,
But nothing more,
Nothing less.

No one knows,
How I feel,
What pain I have to go though.

I can't say,
What I want,
Or everything
Goes away.

I can't share,
I can't show,
I can't tell,
The ones I love.

My best friend,
Has gone away,
But will not be back,
Any time today.

No contact,
Nothing at all,
Just the pictures and memories,
We shared once before.

Hopefully,
One day soon,
She'll be back,
And I'll be back too.

Am not a little girl
Am all grown up

These Tears

These Tears

These Tears should be for happiness...
But instead they aren't they came from inside pain
My mom always said she listened to me when I was talking to her
But she's really not she's thinking about something else, I feel like she
Just wants me to bug off and never come back, I feel she wants me to be hurt
I try to change my whole life just for her to be happy... But yet she still ignored me
I don't know what to do. I just wish she would give me some attention. I want her to know
What's going on in my life. I want her to... Know how her daughter does... In school
Who I hang out with, what I listen to... What I learn everyday. I want to have somebody in my life that can just listen... If you know what I mean I just wish I can have "quality time" with her and nobody else.

Not Enough to Judge Me

I'm labeled so many things
But to start off on the conceited side
I'm cute, smart, quiet and skinny
Plus much more and many

A friend of some,
An associate to many.
I love a lot of things,
And poetry is one of plenty.

I know it sounds crazy, but why can't reality just be a dream?
Why are things really the way they seem?
Can we not choose how we go about our day
This awful reality is turning to gray
And suddenly in an instant, you're gone
To think I could live a happy life, well I was wrong
Your heart is kind, your words were true
Tell me, how will I make it without you?
I need to dodge these awful feelings so I break and bend
Though we are not together, you are still my friend
Every feeling I get, every word I say is true
I honestly wish I could be right beside you
Though, granted wishes were not made for me
So rainy days are what I will continue to see

Hopefully, I can change.

Sorry that I got mad.
But I guess it all started because of my mom and step-dad.
Its just my life, is taking a wrong turn...Its bad.

You were the only one I cared for.
It's like, you found the key to my heart's door.
I never felt that way before...

I should have kept my mouth shut, when we were at the skating rink.
Especially around Kayla, Connie, and those twin girls in pink.
I just don't know what came over me
All I did was blink.

I know I screwed up big time.
I guess I just wanted them to know that you were mine.
But I guess I just took up most of your time.

I never said I didn't trust or believe you,
I believed the love we had was true.

As you gazed through the night sky

As you gazed through the night sky
Nothing else could fill your dreary eyes
Not even the stars that twinkle with bright
Or the lovely moon that dines in tonight
The night seems so empty
Just a sea of blackness
It's such a pity...That
It only left you with sadness
Something missing in your life
Something you hope and wish for all this while
you began to search for it
But nothing comes out of it
and then one day without realizing,
It just comes to you
You are grateful
But those barriers kept blocking your way
Making something you hope for seem so far away
You feel depressed
You've lost, you've missed it
You don't know when it will come to you again
After so long you hope for
What's left was only hopes
Hopes...That one day it comes back to you
never to lose it again
Where it just remains in your heart
and that is when you feel that...
Your life wouldn't be empty no more
It will be just filled with joy and completeness.

"Always You"
When I first saw you, my heart pounded.
Mom found a note on my desk that got me grounded.
Please God, why me?
Why can't you just let it be?
I'm shadowed by the darkness, so give me light
You're the person who gets me through the night.
You are such a cutie. Why ignore?
You never did that when we were friends before.
You make me hyper every time I see your face
It's the kind of face I could never erase.

Our Heartfelt Thanks

When we stride or stroll across the frozen lake,
We place our feet where they have never been.
We seek to discover the unknown.
And we are confident.
For who is down there to support us but our teachers?
Burdens that we once could not carry,
We slowly carry the weight of ourselves.
To move on in life and run a million miles,
For our teachers have taught us how.

For saints were kind but now seek rest.
Dear childYou were never meant to know.

But for what purpose, mother?
Has our father, the great lord turn against us
For an evil witch, that devils spawn.

Our lord wishes.
Therefore it must be granted.
Though it brings to us much disgrace.
But we can only pray.

But why, mother dear,
Why?

The king longs for an heir to succeed him.

But am I not legitimate for the throne?

A True Life Story

There were townhomes with 69 units. One of those units were mine, one was my best friend's. He rarely called me by my name but calls me Ens. I called him Pol or Pay. We were best friends for 5 years. Then one day he invited me to go to a place nearby.
His nose began bleeding and we had to rush to his house. His mother told me to go home.
While I was watching tv, the phone rang. I rushed to answer it.
"Hello?"
"Is this my boys girlfriend?"
I said, "No, this is Pol's friend."
"He is now in the hospital and suffering from an illness."
"What? Hes sick? From what, how is he now? What happened to him?"
The person on the phone hung up.
After the call, tears kept falling down my face, worrying and wondering about Pol, thinking "Will he be okay?
When I went to school, I told what happened to my other friend but I couldn't stop my tears. I ran off to the comfort room and cried. I was never this unhappy.
When I went home, I reached for the phone and called Pol. He was not there.
The next day, I was still upset.
I got home and called again, but nobody answered.
The next day, I didn't call him, but called my friend instead. When I was talking to her, Pol knocked on my window. I hung up the phone and rushed to Pol and asked,
Are you alright? What happened? How come youre sick? What's your illness?"
He stopped my mouth from opening by his finger and said,
Dont talk anymore."
He suddenly looked at me closely and then I felt his lips touching mine. There was a long silence.
Then he turned and ran to a spot where he could sit and hide. I followed him and I said,
"What!?"
"I can't, I'm wrong, I did bad, I-mmm sorry"
"Why?"
I have cancer, leukemia"
I started crying, tears falling down my face. But he said,
"Don't cry, live peacefully, never think of me, go and have your own life, have it, there's only 30% that I could live, don't think about me."
I ran as fast as I could to my house.
Later I heard an ambulance while I was crying.

Forget Me Not

Amongst the misnomers and everyday chores,
In tombs of wisdom behind locked doors,
With fairy dust disguising the flaws,
The angels do not silently speak, but whisper:

All that is left shall remain lost, forever
longing and forgotten

But I-
Found thee and healed thy wounds,
Answered thy prayers and cradled thee in my arms, -
Remembered.

For friends shall always
seek,
answer, and
remember.

Again

If when you wake up,
And the hurting is so great,
You don't want to get out of bed to face a world of hate.
If everything in life goes wrong,
And nothing seems to go right,
Just keep trying,
And soon you will see the light.
For every person who has put you down,
And filled your life with pain, you must strive to achieve Greatness, to show them you can win!
For every disappointment,
For the times you are let down,
There will be a better moment,
And your life will turn around.
Everyone feels heartache,
And everyone feels pain,
But only those with true courage,
Can get up and try again.

I hate the way you talk to me

I hate the way you talk to me and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you steer. I hate your big dumb combat boots and the way you always read my mind. I hate it so much it makes me sick, it even makes me rhyme. I hate the way youre always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh and even worst when you make me cry. I hate it when youre not around and the fact that you didn't call. But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

I Hate You.

I hate you.
You squashed my heart,
Like a bug on your windshield,
You wiped me off no problem.
You wanted to be friends.
Then you were irritating me,
Like an itchy wool sweater on my heart.
You sat down next to me
On the bus today.
I tried to be sullen
To not care.
You annoyed me.
I hate you.
But when you got off at your stop,
I just stared at your neck.
Under your crop of messy sandy hair,
I wanted to kiss your perfect neck.
Again, a bug on your windshield.

I Just Know

I just know that you were the only person in the world but I was all wrong. You played me for some other chick, but that's OK because what goes around comes around, and all the pain you made me feel is going to hit you even harder.

Wrote for a World War

This is a poem I wrote for a World War I project at school last year:

Panic, screams, gunfire,
Every man for himself.
Bangs, explosion, shouts for help,
Then fallingfalling into pain.

Pain grinds down, blinding, numbing, continual,
Lying in a ditch, cold, alone,
Bleeding and crying out in vain.

Best friends (written 3 years ago)

Best friends (written 3 years ago)

You invent the greatest games,
And tell such funny tales,
You listen to my problems,
And help me paint my nails.

Youre trustworthy and loyal,
You never tell a lie,
You cheer me up no end,
You make me laugh and smile.

Sometimes youre annoying,
And you drive me round the bend,
But you really, truly are,
A very special friend.

Laughing, Smiling, Dancing

Laughing, smiling, dancing
You're always happy to help.
What's beneath that glowing exterior?
Dig beneath the skin and muscles
Further than the beating heart
There is a human soul
A soul that's crushed, like a boat against a rock
Too many masks has it worn
A facade of colors and brightness
When the colors have faded and the brightness turned dull
The soul is a mixture of sadness, anger, nothingness
The problems and tribulations hidden away like shameful secrets
Who is beneath the mask?
Too scared of losing, of tumbling into the black hole of doubt
You cover the soul again, the mystery again
And you cover the black and blue
The painful memory disappears under makeup
But the bruise still shows
Maybe not on the face, but forever on the heart.

3 days

3 days

It took 3 days.
3 days to know you.
3 days to love you.
3 days to live.
3 days to die.
3 days to hate my best friend.
She stole you from me in 3 days.
Not even a week, they've all fallen for you.
I've fallen the hardest and nobody's guessed.
In 3 days, they've come to the conclusion
That I'll be the one to get you.
We're so much alike, you and I.
We could be the same person.
It took me 3 days to realize,
That if I had only 3 days as your girl,
I'd be happy for another million.
3 days ago, I didn't know you.
It took 3 days to learn your face, your voice, your smell, your thoughts.
3 days to know you better than I know myself.
I've loved you forever, and forever is 3 days.

Is it just my imagination?

Is it just my imagination
Or was it just a stupid Infatuation?
Or was is the spur of a moment
With love and indulgence?
Was it really love
Or did I just feel that way?
Was it all a part of me
And something I had to say?
I followed my heart
Down the yellow brick road
To find my insecurities
Left to find their way back home.
It was never enough just to take it all away
But now that your gone
I'm ready to say
You liar and cheat
And despicable guy
Nothing is easy
Until the day I die..
I'll love and forget
About the ways things were
I'll listen to music.
My feelings were hurt
Bruised and abandoned
No shelter to hold
Reckless endangerment.
Our fate will behold
One day it'll be different
With someone to care
Not like yourself.
Weren't you aware?

Because I'm madly
Madly

"I Dreamt About You"

"I Dreamt About You"

I had a dream about you last night.
I was in your arms, and you were holding me tight.
To me...It felt so right.

Your warm body against mine.
We didn't need to keep track of time.
Right then, right there, you were all mine.

I knew nobody could do the things we do.
Especially when its just me and you.
Our love was so pure...So true.

My heart ached with joyful pain.
I walked with you in the pouring rain.
They love we had...We could not maintain.

Then we went back to your place.
And laid on the couch and left no space.
We kept the beat going...Going with the pace.

I dreamt about you last night.
I was in your arms, and you were holding me tight.
To me...It felt so...so...right.

No need to worry about the past
Im ok now, my eyes are dry
Lifes too short to sit and cry
Theres a world out there ready to live
You dont need a guy to do that with
So if a guy has broke your heart
Show him that youre too smart
To wait for him to take you back
Get your life back on track
Meet your mates and have a ball
Because their going to be with you through it all

A teenage girl's first crush is . . . well,

A teenage girl's first crush is . . . well, crushing.
Her body isn't hers, nor is her mind.
She finds herself shivering, shaking, blushing,
Weak, tormented, sick, and going blind.
And why? Because some guy might look her way,
Then cast his eyes as quickly to the ground;
Some special one, for reasons she can't say,
Whose voice makes her feel faint when he's around.
But now my crush on you has been returned,
And so the two of us stand on some brink:
It can't be love so young, and yet we've learned
Love does its will, no matter what we think.
Slowly, slowly now--we musn't rush:
Let's enjoy this first sweet teenage crush.

Sometimes I think about suicide,

Sometimes I think about suicide,
It seems the only way out,
Out of this h*** in my life,
I feel left behind, invisible,

I just don't want to do it,
I'm afraid of death,
But it seems my only option,
I don't feel like I have a purpose in my life,

It's just h*** everyday,
Might as well call it hellweek,
I have to find myself,
And talk to God.

You don't know it

You don't know it
The tears you have given me
They don't fall automatically
I'm clueless to your mind
I'm afraid you'll leave me behind
I want to quit liking you
Even though you never knew
I want to be in your arms
Keep me safe, away from harm
You don't know me at all
You can't hear when I call
I act like I don't care
I get weak when ever your near
This poem is really from me
And from my heart as blue as the sea

"Heard it all before"

My mom
My teachers
My sister
My preacher
Tell me I can do better because they've seen it be done
How do they know?
Maybe I'm stupid
For all they know it could've been a pun
I hate the speachess
I hate the threats
I hate the "where are you going I'm not done with you yet"
I just need to be left alone
You know maybe take a break
Enjoy an evening with a book by the lake
But no do I get it?
I don't think so
All I get are lectures and to be hated
Life all good sweet and complex
But when it comes to my grades
I think I know best
I do, do my homework and study for test
But when I screw up don't get on my nerves
It makes matters worse
I'll make up the test
Get off my back

Magic

Magic
I place my fingers on the strings.
I begin to pluck.
G, G, G, G, G.
To the audience,
It is mere G's,
But to me,
It is magic flowing through my fingers.
I pluck the Cello,
As I could all day,
Until my fingers became sore,
And my mind was clear.
I come to my own world,
Where the sun never goes down,
And I can play all day,
In harmony with the violins,
With their higher pitch.
I make a low pitch,
But not as low, as the lowly Bass.
Strum, strum, strum,
Goes the Cello of the girl,
Who has magic flowing from her fingers.

Stare Out The Window

I stare out the window into the cold again. Will I ever be so bold again? The rain brings sad things. Will I ever laugh like I did last spring? My friends said it wouldnt last, but all I want now is to forget the past. Right now I remember holding hands, it was amazing it was grand! We laughed and sang and watched the sunset. I thought it was forever, it was a sure bet! But I can see clearly now he never cared, no way, no how. Now all I have is the One whos strong, Hes the only thing I can fall back on. He always cares for everyone. He is Jesus, Gods only son!

And you acted like it was a joke
Now you hang out with Brian and make fun of me
Can't you just let it be?
Why do football players have to act like that
Always go out with a skinny hot chick
I'm not skinny, I'm not fat
I'm not ugly, I'm not cute
But I'm not going to change just for you
Why can't you change and be like me?

What does that really mean, hearing that patter of the drums in my heart? Waiting for that one person to come and love you again and care, nurture and relax you as they did once before.

Everyday I sit and wonder

Everyday I sit and wonder will I ever be ok again? I make mistakes and screw my life up.. Will I ever be ok again? I sit at night wishing, hoping all the pain will go away. The conflicts, the anger, the sorrow, just blends in all together. The visons, the nightmares of what I am afraid is going to happn, I risked everything and yet I got nowhere, will I ever be ok again? My hopes and dreams are so high they almost become impossible, will I ever be ok again? I miss Abbey but yet I have to let her go, will I ever be ok again? I let my parents down one too many times, I hope they see me the same, will I ever be ok again? I watch and I learn through people's emotions and feelings finding they have the same as me, wishing to grasp that, I just lose it again, will I ever be ok again?

You said you'd never break a promise

You said you'd never break a promise, you'd never make me cry. Although you scream and fight with her you still look at me with wide eyes. You tell me that you love me and that you've always cared that I was your little girl. You'd always be there but when you looked at her and started to scream you don't know how that hurt me. It made you look so mean. I hid under the table shutting one eye looking at you with sad despair wondering why why you had to yell and why you had to scream. Shouting is not right, it's not happy, it's mean. Until she had enough to say "I'll leave," I sat on your bedroom floor just begging and pleading, no why why me what did I do? I just want to know how you do those things. You do. You lie to me and hurt my heart I now understand why she didn't stay. The nice daddy that I knew now starts difting away!

Love Comes as Fast as it Leaves

Love comes as fast as it leaves
It fills your heart with joy
And sometimes leaves your heart broken
You ask why do people fall in love
Why do they feel sad
Why does love leave
Then come back just to leave you sad again
Why do people love
Why do they want to love
Be loved, find love, feel love
Have you ever loved with all your heart
Then one day love packs up and leaves again
Leaving you nothing but a shattered heart
This thing called love
Is it good or bad
Only you can decide
It is inevitable to love
It is something you have to do, feel, and be
It might leave you with a broken heart
But it will be worth it

You Didn't Know


You didn't know or make an effort to
As I hurt here sick and tired,
You show no affection.
As my tears form a drowning river,
You pay no attention.
As I'm suffering here all alone,
Where are you to take my hand,
When my head is splitting and my world is spinning,
My life I cannot stand.
As I'm too dizzy to stand up,
Where is your shoulder to lean on?
As I sit by the toilet feeling like throwing up,
Where are you to pull back my hair
Are you oblivious that I'm not feeling well,
Has it even phased you.
No. You know nothing of my pain. I won't tell.
Not them and not you.
It was your responsibility but you didnt have a clue.

Love Yourself

Love Yourself

Don't reach for the knife,
Don't make yourself feel pain,
Don't let the blood run red with life,
One day, things will be happy again.

Don't let the hatred and scorn of others
Burn a hole in your heart inside.
Your friends see your shining colours,
Know this, and maybe one day you'll feel pride.

Don't let the darkness and the sorrow
Turn out the light that's in your eyes.
There will be a better tomorrow,
One without deceit and lies.

So in the meantime while you're waiting,
Find the beauty that lies behind
All the sadness and the hurting,
And maybe one sunny morning you'll wake up and
Love yourself.

THEATRE CURTAIN

Theatre curtain

You're soft to touch, like deep velvet,
You're mellow and gentle and kind,
You're perfect in every way I can think of,
Just like a gorgeous theatre curtain.

I could hide among your folds,
I could peep beneath your gaps but never find out what's inside,
I'd feel the anticipation, the excitement,
Just like a theatre curtain.

But then I'd get a glimpse,
It would be your mistake,
You opened the curtain too soon,
But I'd have seen, seen everything I needed to know.

The curtain's just a cover,
To hide what's underneath,
You're not perfect or mellow or kind,
You're something else, something cruel and vicious.

Just like a theatre curtain,
You never know what you're going to find behind.

Before I met you.
You swept me up like a gust of wind,
And then blew me away like a speck of dust.

Why? Why did you toss me away without reason?

But I did, I did.

Without asking me.
A bandage won't
Even heal my wounds.
You took advantage.
How could you have managed?
You caused me so much damage,
Even though it's not all clear.
Just a blur!
It's still there.
I know in the end
It wasn't just a dream.

What is Our World Now?

What is our world now?
Sex comes young,
And all around us, the people,
Become different.
They change on pressure,
And want you to change too.
Be like me is what they say,
But being like you is what to do.
Because when the scheme of things collapse,
Just know, that when you follow your heart,
You follow your soul.

Do you even see me?

Do you even see me?
Do you know I'm there?
Can you hear my heart beat for you?
All the way over there.
Just one little glance from you
Is all that it takes
For my screaming, aching heart
To race.
I may not be the cutest
Girl you've ever seen.
We could be so happy
If only in my dreams.
Can you hear my heart break
Each and every day?
I can't help but stumble
When I try to call your name.
I guess I'm trying to say
Just give me a chance.

Always

From Homecoming to Prom I'll always be your girl
From break-ups to make-ups you still mean the world
From spring to winter we'll always be together
From 9th to 12th there's nobody better.

Love me

I loved you,
I thought you loved me,
But oh no,

But also helped me realize,
That my cousin was not nice,
Thanks for being you,
I only want to be friends now,
Thanks for being there for me.

*I Loved You*

I loved you
I still do
I loved you
And my feelings were true
But you didn't love me
If you did I wouldn't have heard all those nasty things you said!
You can try and lie
Don't matter how hard you deny
At first I knew it couldn't have been true
But when you stopped calling my days went blue
And then I knew it had to be true.
I may be wrong I may be right
All I know is that I will be alright
You told me you loved me
It may of been true
But deep down inside I will always love you!

Pain- one thousand needles

Helplessness- one thousand wants,
The things I wanted to do,
Gone, nothingness.

Confused

I thought I liked him, turns out I didn't,
Thought he liked me, turns out he didn't.

In a way I'm glad.
In a way I'm sad.

I cry every night thinking,
"Why doesn't he like me, not even a little?"

I think I like this guy,
And am glad I don't have to cry.
Anymore.

I think I might tell him,
I think I should not.

Might have a girlfriend,
I hope not.

I tell my best friend,
She mocks and ridicules me.

There is a dance coming soon,
In a day in fact, no one to go with,
No one.

I'll Let you Cry your Tears

I'll let you cry your tears
But don't ever be afraid
because I'll be here
To dry your tears
And try to make you realize

Trust yourself to take my hand and kiss your pain and sadness away.
Whenever you worry or feel doubt
Look at me and I'll show you the way out.

I want to help you, so you no longer feel sad
Sometimes it hurts, I know, really bad

I love you and I want you
Can't you understand

I want to be the one you tell it all to
I want to be the person to guide you through
You're my heart, my life and lover too.

You are so special to me.
I long for you to be here,
You are so special to me.
I want you near,
You are so special to me.

I Loved you Dearly

I loved you dearly; I was always there. I showed up for everything for you and anytime you needed me I was there with support or words of encouragement to help you to get through your day. But then when I needed you most you seemed to never be there you never were on time or never there when you said you would be. But now thats okay because I have to move on. I don't want to- it hurts so bad- you and no one else understands. They all tell me that I'll understand it in good times and that you are just another boy and that there are many more fish in the sea. But do they understand that you're my only fish in my sea?

When you're lost, I will find your way.

When you're lost I will find your way.
When you're hurt I will make it ok.
When you cry I will wipe away your tears.
When you are scared I will fight your fears.
When you need a friend just call on me.
For you I'm here, baby you will see.
Anything you need I will do,
For nothing is impossible when I do it for you.
I will push away the sea for you to cross.
Pull the sun out when you are lost.
Push a mountiain for you to get through,
Because baby I love you.

Intellectual Victim

Jealous is the word,
And the reason, too,
Of why you treat me like a person,
That is purposely trying to harass you.

Sure, I do work hard in school,
And try my best to succeed,
But not to make you look bad,
For that, there is no need.

I do not brag about being intellectual,
Yet, you still manage to figure out,
That I learn very quickly and make good grades,
And then you begin to pout.

This is when I get frustrated,
Since everyone points their finger at me,
As if I had much of a say,
In how smart I turned out to be.

Then later, when you're struggling to get the answer,
And some help would surely be nice,
You come running to me with the nicest attitude,
Expecting me to give you advice.

Of course, I realize what you're doing,
So I ignore your question without worry,
But suddenly, your friendly attitude disappears,
Taken over by raging fury.

I know this cycle is neverending,
Therefore, I will try to deal,
With the fact that you will never understand,
How your actions make me feel.

Dreams

I'm tired and lonely without a care
drinking 'til I'm stupid no stories to share
cold and empty in this shallow place
Is it my depression? No that just isn't the case
Where can I find you, I feel so lost
Please come and find me, what would it cost?
My heart looking for love in all the wrong places
I just can't remember- I see too many faces
Where can I belong; please show me the way
I need to know that there will be a brighter day
Will you care if I keep on breathing?
Oh wait a mintue I am just dreaming.

The moon and the stars

The moon and the stars
Dance in the sky
Across the dark horizon

On a dark Stage
Just like the writer
And the pen on the page

School- Some Suggestions

If kids could be the teachers,
If kids could make the rules,
There'd be a lot of changes
In almost all the school.
First thing they'd stop the homework,
They'd never give a test.
They know that growing children
Must have their proper rest.
They'd make the lunchtime longer--
Let's say from twelve to two,
So every growing boy or girl
Had enough time to chew!

Of course, concerning recess,
Kids clearly realize
To keep their bodies healthy,
They need to exercise.
And so there would be recess
perhaps from nine to ten
And then when it is two o'clock
It's recess time again!
With long strong weekends,
Each child would grow so smart--
He would perform with excellence
In music, gym and art!

I Hate You So Mcuh!

I hate you so much!
You drive me insane!
Hearing your name,
Is just making me mad.
I hate life.
I hate you.
Only one I love, James.
James, only one I trust.
Yet he's the one hating me.
I hate my mom.
She spies on me,
Listens to my phone calls,
Reads my texts,
E-mails too.
What's going on?
Am I illegal or something?!
She hit me yesterday,
But it was different than any other day.
It was my best friend's birthday.
She burnt me,
Hit me with the hair dryer, burnt my neck.
It still hurts and I cry myself to sleep.
I'm scared.
I want to die.
Suicide is my idea.
As I write this poem,
I cry.
Hold a knife to my throat and cry.
Cry.
Die.

Mom I hate you! You drove me to suicide. Don't
Deny it because I couldn't stand the pain no more.
Just had to die. James if you get this and read this,
I hope you had a blast on Monday.
Sorry I couldn't make it.
Good luck for the future because honey, you're so talented.
Never let anyone stand in your way like I let them.
You have one life and one world, so use it.

Please...

Please...
Don't be too passionate on a first meeting,
I may like you too easily.
Don't be so intriguing please,
I may find myself guessing and thinking of you.
Don't break into your sunshine smile to cheer up so frequently,
I may find the world gloomy when you are not around.
Don't reveal your smiles in a vague manner too,
I may find myself wondering what they mean, when they meant no more than what it seems.
Don't bare those serious, concerning eyes into mine,
I may be bewitched or enchanted out of my mind.
Don't be overcaring particularly when I'm down,
I may see you as more than just a friend.
Don't hold my hands till they are as warm as hot chocolate,
I may be unwillingly to let go afterwards.
Don't be too nice to me,
I may miss you when you're not beside me.
Don't be too sweet dear,
I may fall for you and never stand up again.
Don't turn your back on me all of a sudden
and pretend I don't exist,
I may find my pillow soaked with tears
and hopes shattered...
and my heart broken.
Please don't do all these...
It is hard for me to love you when you won't love me after all.

More Than Just Words

More than just words

He turns around.
Catches her in the act.
Tries not to stare.
For she was not pretty, not pretty at all;
But beautiful.
He looks into her eyes
But got lost,
So lost.
For she was afraid.
Of what?
Of Love. Afraid of:
Falling in love.
Losing her pride.
Getting hurt.
By him.
For she loved him,
And he knew.
So did they. The entire school.
So there she was.
Fallen phoenix, ready to sink.
And then reborn. Again.
Should he consider her?
Should he go over?
Should he risk his pride?
What if she rejected him?
What if the rumours werent true?
Turning back, he walks away,
Mission abandoned.
Footsteps echoing down the hallway
But the girl still stared.
She was still, but for the two tears down her cheek.
For she loved him, oh yes, oh, yes, she did.
For the girl was me.

Now They Walk Apart

Now they walk apart,
They used to walk together,
Hand in hand,
Now they walk apart,
He walks in front,
With his head held high,
Not a crease,
Not even a sigh,
She walks behind,
Her head curled over,
People speak to him,
But pass her by,
Without him she is no one,
Standing alone in the rain,
Needing him to embrace her,
And take away her pain

I have loved you

I have loved you from the start,
I will love you until the end,
You will always be in my heart,
Even if we never mend,

No matter whom you marry,
No matter where you may be,
A memory of you my heart will carry,
It is you my mind will see,

You ignore me on the street,
You talk about me to others,
So now I blank you when we meet,
Whether or not we are with our mothers.

But I don't want to I just wanna let it rip. The reason I say this is because I don't know if I can trust you.
For all the damages that have happend threw me and you, I love you with all my heart but you probably love someone else.
Like that two or maybe even k*d to. I'm sorry for what I've done or seemed to do but I don't know I just
wanna be real and cool with you. Maybe we can seem to work this out or maybe even start over again without a doubt. I just wish you can be that old true friend so this can never happen again!

Love is a message of life

Love is a message of life, and the heart is the sender. People say: follow your heart. It tells you why you are in love with that one special person. You wont always understand why you are so head over heels with this person, why you think about them, dream about them, or think they are with you when theyre not. Not seeing that person that really makes you happy, meaning damaged old feelings come flushing back, leaving you feeling frustrated and making you cry. But crying doesnt solve anything. Then you blame yourself for something that you could have prevented that all comes from the love you have for them. That is the message that love has given to explain to me why I still blame myself for something I could have prevented.

I was always the typical girl next door. It seemed like everyone had a boyfriend but me at the time, even the not real good looking girls. But, there was this boy by the name of Poo'. And Poo' was very good looking. And while we were on the track I he yells, "Hey Ariel" as loud as he could. All of the other boys would have just said, hey, like they don't want to speak. But he did speak. And he noticed me!!

Your Letter

I haven't heard from you in a while
The letter you wrote just made me smile
Visions of us holding hands
Having long walks and talks in the sand
In your letter you said you never meant to hurt me
You were blind and couldn't see
The beauty that lies upon me
I could become your wife to be
Although you hurt me the fact still remains
I wasn't the only but at least I was your main
You thought that this was a just a game
Ran circles around me cause to you I was lame
You asked me would I take you back
But I'm just getting my life back on track
Maybe a year ago I would have accepted you back with open arms
I think not 'cause you'd do me plenty harm
You closed your letter with love always
P.S will you be mine
I said boy you is silly, it ain't even Valentines

You say you'll call me but you don't
You leave me here on this note

All the things you said you'll do

It's because you tell a lie

Some things weren't meant to be
So I guess I'll be free

Then spent the night at his house.

If Only I Knew....

If only I knew...
If I only I knew that life was going to bring me this pain,
If only I knew I had nothing to gain,
If only God would make something good happen in my life and give me a sign that it was mine forever,
The one thing I wanted the most was Arnie! The boy of my dreams!
He meant that much to me and God took him from me and gave him to another girl!
Why does God constantly have to pick on me?
I haven't done anything wrong to deserve this!
I get good grades! I look after not only me but my friends and family too!
I do everything I can to make the world a better place but still I gain nothing!
If only I knew, if only I knew.

Blonde or brunette?
See I am brunette,
And have as much fun.
Except I still have class,
You chose the wrong one.
You chose the blonde.
And what did she do?
She played your same game,
Now the jokes is on you.
I have no problem with blondes.
A lot of them are great.
But some people keep hair die,
And its a little outta date.
I admit I did at once,
But now I'm at my natural color.
And get much more compliments,
I would choose none other.
I stay true to myself.
Never have I cheated.
Now every ones laughing,
Because baby you got treated.
But I didnt do it.
Because I got class.
The blondes the one who did it.
I think you choose to fast.
While she loads on the make up,
And wears skimpy clothes,
I wear much less
And let my style flow.
She is too desperate,
Thats why she lets it all hang out.
Now you want me back,
You switched to my route.
But I got someone else,
Who loves me for me.
Brunette, me he choose,
Not that blonde tease.

But I'm afraid to admit "we" fail.

Every limb heavy, baby.
Every move slow.

'Cause otherwise I won't go.
Tell me it's all over,
Then walk me out that door.

I Bless The Day That I Found You

Even though you new me from the start.
I knew you would be the one that would win my heart.

Even though I made a mistake
I went out with this one boy, my heart, he did break.

But you picked me up and took me in.
You stole my heart and you still win.
You fixed my heart and repaired it over and over again.

Now that we've been together, I know and see.
A new side between you and me.

I can't stop thinking about you, I can't stop dreaming.
The way you walk and your body keeps gleaming.

From your laugh to your smile.
I always want to just stay awhile.

Your brown eyes and light-brown skin.
Now I want to see you again.

I love you with everything I got.
And you still love me for everything I'm not.

That other boy thought he had me, and forced me to do things I didn't want to do.
But that other person that treated me right, and in case your wondering that person is you.

You're the only person that makes my heart skip a beat.
And if I ever get in trouble, I now you'll help me get out of the heat.

I love you and I hope this shows.
I want the whole world to know.

When I get mad, or cry because I'm sad.
You always pick me up and get rid of all things bad.

I love the sound of your voice.
It makes me know I made the right choice.

I hope you feel the same way.
Because I think about you all day.

I love you and only you.
I know your love is pure and true.
I bless the day. That I found you.

Sister Sympathy

Treated like a dog,
Sprayed so I will yield
What she can't stand is
Compared to her, my fate is sealed.

That's why I act perfect,
Her expectations I must meet.
She craves it more than I
For her I stand on two feet

This way she can cry
That all she is is normal
So the second that I fail,
My pities are just formal

It's the only thing she can win
She is the sympathy queen
That way every time she wins
My pain goes unseen

So get your meds ready
Joey's got a tummy ache
But give them to me instead
For both our health's sake.

Now you know you're getting a slap,
Now they think we're sly,

We say we don't, but do we care?

Until you came and blew that dream away!

Watch out because we're gonna get you!

No More

I get to know James
I fall in love with him
I have great memories with him
Everything comes to an end.

Neither of us want it to end
But what can we do?
Nothing. We can't do anything
He is moving back to Arizona
Here come all the tears.

I know I love him
Can't live without him
But I know that
By the end of May there will be no J and J
I won't believe this.

He can't possibly leave
The two of us want the whole summer
I can't live without him
He is the world to me.

He doesn't want to leave
I don't want him to leave
We won't break up
We'll stay together
As long as we can, Hopefully forever.

Everything will change
No more late Friday nights
No more fun memories at skating
No more long phone calls
And no more getting into trouble

We know everything is different
Nothing will be the same
Soon everything will come to an end
We soon will say Good-Bye
There will be a lot of tears.

No more dinners
No more triple dates
No more hiding
No more playing basketball, one-on-one
No more fun together.

The one day when he leaves
Will be the saddest day ever
The worst day ever
The day will never be forgotten
That day will bring back great memories.

Saying Good-Bye
The hardest part
Someone you love and trust
Will leave you forever
Three last words: I Love You

There is no more us,
We are gone

You're a light in the sky
I can't see you because you're a spirit.
You made the heaven and the earth.
You take care of me.
It's a great thing I have you
in my life. I pray every day.
I LOVE YOU GOD!!!!!

The Under Midst Tunnel

The under midst tunnel,
I don't know what to do
My love for you is unexplainable
When I think of you
I see the sun and the moon.
You give the right stuff
Not because you're tough.

This May Seem Really Weird

Dear Chris,

This may seem really, really weird at first, and hard to take in, but Chris, "I Love you!"
You were there for me when me and my ex broke up, you were there for me more than my best friends even were. You're probably thinking "wonderful! First Hazel, now Carly, what next?!?!"
But please don't think like that because I really like you.
Well I'll talk to you soon.
Love,
Carly x0x0x

I want to write

I want to write,
Keep away my spite,
Make jealousy real,
I'll always reveal.

No one can see,
I'm in a mood,
So I end this letter,
With sweet solitude.

Ten Ton Thought On Friendship

One day,
Not long ago,
I thought I said,
Hello.
A simple word,
For a simple world,
Yet seeds of doubt,
They sow.
Many hours,
Passed the day,
Dreaming,
Still awake,
I know.
Yet swirls
And bubbles,
Swirled and bubbled,
In my mind they tow.
Remembering,
When I thought,
I'm sure,
I said hello.
I can see,
When faced with,
You,
I'm sure,
I said.
No.

Let Me Live My Life

Let me live my life.
I don't need you.
I don't need you to tell me what to do!
I'm my own person.
I don't want you to guide me
All I want is your support,
Your love and your heart!

My Birthday's Coming Up

My birthday's coming up,
Does anybody care?
I think of this always,
In the morning while brushing my hair.
I wrecked my mother's camera,
And fought with my friends.
I'm stuck on this earth until the very end.
I fell into the Fort Ridgley stream,
Then the river by Flandrau.
But no one really cares,
And neither do you.
My birthday is coming up on September 27th.
But no one really cares.

Stop Asking

Will everybody stop asking who I fancy?
Will everybody stop asking for whom I care?
Will everybody stop asking who I love?
For this I cannot bear.

God Sent You From Above

God sent you from above,
To be with the one you love.
So since I'm your future wife,
We will be together for life.

Nothing will ever come between us,
Even if we start to fuss.
As other girls may say,
I don't see you as money,
I see me being your honey.

Even when the weather is cold,
You can come to me and I will hold.
Hold the one that I love,
The one that I love from far above.

My Orlando

You are the one for me.

You are mine!

You

I watch you across the room,
My mind swirling with a million thoughts about you.
I am filled with hope and longing.
Hold me I think, hold me close like you do in my dreams.
I want you so much.

I remember when you told me I was beautiful,
And wonder what happened to our friendship.
Why won't you look at me, why can't you see all I want is to love you?
You are all I need...

Mi Amor

To tell you the truth, I love your eyes.
I feel warm inside when ever I see you.
When your eyes see me, I would say, they always inspire joy in me.
Your eyes are so beautiful and attractive.
If you could see how much I love them,
you would tell me to take them and take care of them.

Your eyes reflect the pureness of heart.
From the suffering and sadness you let me forget.
God has blessed me looking in your eyes.
In your eyes.

Changes

In a world full of changes each and everyday,
I feel like I'm judged for what I do and say.
I remember Barbies and play-days in the park,
When I didn't have to worry about other people's remarks.

But when I look in the mirror, much to my surprise,
I see someone else looking deep into my eyes.
The carefree, little child I saw act four and five,
Is now a preteen learning to survive!

My Mistake

I made a mistake,
My fingers couldn't hold on anymore.
My love for you is not gone,
is yours?

I cherish everyday,
And still I can't forget my foolish ways.
But I can't bear to be around your stare,
And I can't breathe with a constant plea in my ear.
And everything you do,
I'd still do it for you.

Darkness Within

If you look inside me you would see only darkness.
I'm always lonely and afraid, because I'm hateful.
I wish I'll just die in my sleep but it doesn't happen.

People hate me and envy me so I'm punished
By humiliation and ridicule by my own friends.
Falling in love is never going to happen to me, because I'm too hateful.

Falling into darkness is a bad thing to some people, but to me it's a good thing.
I'm so dark I would be black as night if it showed on the outside.
I cower into corners like a timed cat.
I dislike being around people, I prefer just to be alone in my own world.
That's the walk through the darkness within.

Same?

Everything's so different, yet the same.
I see everyone and wonder if they changed, or I did.
Then I look again and see they aren't a bit different.

The classrooms are different,
Or are they?
They don't feel that way.

All my friends feel the same.
Same look, same laugh, same everything
All but one.

I haven't seen you since June,
You were everything to me.
A best friend, a person to laugh with, someone to secretly love.

Now, I don't know you anymore.
You're still a friend, I think.
Love? Not anymore.

Hello, my friend.
Or is it good bye?
Let's find out together.

Laugh

I wondered what you were like,
Not very interested, just curious.
Now I know.

We started joking in homeroom,
It went on through science, social studies, lunch, and the bus.
Will it ever stop?

I hope not.
When we laugh, it's perfect.
If there's any justice, we'll never stop.

As I sit here
I can't help thinking of your smiling face.
May you never have reason to frown.

I used to wonder who you were inside,
Now I know.
You're my friend.

Maybe more.
You make me laugh,
You have no idea how important that is.

I can approach you,
We can talk seriously,
Or not.

We immediatly clicked,
That's rare for me.
Good luck, my friend.

Good Luck.

Life's Bad Enough Alone

Life's bad enough when you're alone,
To be deserted by your friends over the phone.
Are they really what they seem to be?
Or are they hiding under the tree?

I know I'm not beautiful that I can't deny,
But they depend on my looks and I know why.
They act like they are all my friends
And then betray me in the end.

This year their true colours appear,
They look at me with all their fear.
Now they are judging me with my looks,
Killing me with all their hooks.

Why must this happen to me?
Half of me doesn't care but the other wants me to see,
Who my real friends are right now,
Who makes me smile whenever I frown.

My life's not easy that I agree
But I try to make it look simple for others to see.
I don't act like myself these days
Scared to listen to what they will say.

The real me is hidden inside
For someone special to come and find.
And let that person be the one
To hang out with me under the sun.

And when the person I have met
I'll forget all of my regrets.
And try very hard to start anew
My life's not over just like yours too.

I'm Calling Out Your Name, O God

I'm Calling Out Your Name, O God
Are you sure you can hear me?
O, please, God can you answer?
Please hand me the key.

God, can't you understand?
I'm calling out your name!
Please, O Lord, I need your help.
I don't want to play this game.

Please, O God, if you can hear me,
Just give me a sign.
Everytime you don't talk back,
There's a shrivel up my spine.

Answer me with something, Lord
I really need to know
I love you so much, God
And I want to let it show.

****I miss Aunt Dort****

****I miss Aunt Dort****

As I sit here on my bed,
I try and think of what's ahead.
What do I do now that she's went,
Besides sit here and think of all the times we spent.
The times we laughed, the times of love.
The times we gazed up above.
She was plain spoken, but so very sweet.
No kinder person will we ever meet.
Sure there were times the family fought,
But now we realize the lessons that were taught.
Oh how I miss her, I think I might die.
I can never laugh, I just sit here and cry.
I remember those last few hours,
The casket sitting amongst the flowers.
I tried not to sit around and mourn.
But I can't help it I'm so forlorn.
I know she would hate to see us now.
With our tear stained faces and furrowed brows,
She said she would be with us always and forever.
She said she'd leave us never.
So as I get up and go on with life,
I try to forget all the pain and strife.
Well I know pain is terrible.
But knowing she's with me makes it more bearable.

**Just Dreams and Wishes**

**Just Dreams and Wishes**

I wish you liked me,
I really do.
I can't stand to see her with you.
We were friends, but I miss you now.
I wish you knew how I feel,
But you don't even know my love is real.
It runs deep in every pore,
And it's not fading that's for sure.
I've dreamt of holding your firm hand,
And walking with you in the sand.
I long to kiss your blushing cheek,
But to see her with you makes me weep.
I sob a song of lonesome sorrow,
I don't think I'll make tomorrow.
Unless it's you my handsome prince,
To take me away to complete and total happiness.

Blood Is Thicker Than Water

Blood Is Thicker Than Water

It's your fault! She screamed
Awaking from her memory
It can't be, she whispered to herself
The counselor said it was no ones fault
No one's fault!
She screamed over and over again
Getting quieter each time
She began crying and shivering
While whispering to herself
No one's fault, no one's fault
Even though her parents, her teachers, all said that it wasnt her fault
Miss Taylor and her daughter drowned
She knew it was
She knew in her heart
It was her soul telling her so
Her brain wouldn't listen
It wasn't her memory that had gotten her into this mess
She began hitting her head against the wall
She saw the knife across the room
She made a grab for it
Gashing at her flesh
Each cut was a relief
It's like the blood running from the cuts was the pain running from her bleeding heart
Her mother knocked on the door
"Honey, time for dinner"
The girl rocked herself back and forth
Singing softly
Her mum knocked again this time more frantically
And again and again
Each time getting louder
Finally, her mother had grown tired of knocking
She kicked open the door
She grabbed for the closest thing
It was her beanie
The one identical to the little girls
Found at the bottom of the lake
She wiped a tear off her cheek
Her blood flowed from her body
Clutching on to the beanie
She saw her mum recovering from her fall
Her mother got up
She pushed it against her cuts
Pushing it onto them harder and harder
She then
Heard voices
Images flashed around her
Feel the pain the voice whispered
It was hoarse, as if wanting revenge
Look what you've done to my poor beanie
Poor horsey, look at her she is blood red
She hates that colour
The voice began crying
She sighed as the pain slowly died down
She closed her eyes
What's wrong?
The mother asked
What is that pen?
Looking down at the beanie
Scattered across the floor
Where the girl had tossed it with pure frustration
Oh dear God! Her mother cursed.

I Miss It

I Miss It

My life is breaking apart,
Splitting in two.

One half is a memory of things I left behind, and the Other is experiencing weird events,
And the strange things around me.

I feel like I'm being excluded and ignored,
And yet I feel like I'm also fitting in.
But I don't want to.
I want to go back to the old routine.

I miss it.


Nothing's green until spring,
And life's become very dull.

Nobody cares about anything,
There are hearts only half full.

A heard is round,
But theirs' are pointy,

My screams are loud,
But do they hear?

No, not a sound.
What are they thinking?
Nothing perhaps.

My mid is full of noises,
Little chattering and taps.

And I hate it.
I want to go back to the old routine.

I miss it.

Now it is Spring , and everything is alive and bright.

The morning doves chirp, I can't hear them,
But it is such a sight.

It feels like I'm deaf,
But I'm certainly not.

I greet them kindly, and they greet me with greed.

They call me names,
And I run away, nimble, with speed.

And I hate it.
I want to go back to the old routine.

I miss it.

Why, oh why, did our love die?

Why, oh why, did our love die?
I loved you so,
Why did you have to go?
You may have been shorter,
But I loved you just the same.
Why do we have to play this game?
You're now going out with someone younger,
I'm depressed.
This morning I didn't feel like getting out of bed and getting dressed.
Just remember the day you stuck up for me,
The day you kissed me on the cheek.
Then you got that little sneak to dump me,
I had a lump in my throat, I walked away in misery, then burst into tears.
Meeting you again was then on in my fears.
So why oh why, did our love die?
I'm not going to lie, I love you.

_______ At First Sight

From the first day I saw you, I knew it was meant to be.
Your eyes were so warm and heavy.
You returned the words of three.
I gazed into your eyes, I knew that you would never lie.
From the words of a poet that you whispered softly into my ear.
I know that someday I won't shed a tear.
Because you are so special to me.
You are the only one for me.

Love Is Around Us and I Think That You Will find

Love is around us and I think that you will find
That other people here are simply just divine.
I know I am not popular or the best looking girl
I know that when you look at me, you want to hurl.
I am not a silly school girl
I can do amazing things
Though I may not have a boyfriend or fifty diamond rings
Who cares about what bullies think?
It only your opinion that counts.
Don't be self concious
Your great with out a doubt!
You don't need a guy 2 complete you
Your fab just how you are
Girl, just look right through him
I know that you will see,
A little boy inside there who still loves me!

The Perfect Guy.

The perfect guy. The gentle touch of your hand sends a shiver down my spine. The gentle kiss of your lips I hope you'll always be mine. The softness of the words "I love you," the ones whispered in my ear. The softness of you holding me close, now I know I have nothing to fear. You kiss me again. This time on the cheek. I have been searching for the most perfect guy. I now no longer have to seek.

Dissapointment with everything I do

Dissapointment with everything I do,
talking, listening, reading, writing,
I set many goals which I have yet to achieve.
Who knows, maybe I'll never achieve
Try to be optimistic but that doesn't work,
Try to be critical but become more hurt,
Try to remember the last time I achieved,
Dissapointment with everything I do.

Where Do You Turn

Where do you turn when it hurts too much just to get out of bed, just to face a world so cold?
Where do you turn when it seems your only solution has to do with the knife under your pillow?
Where do you turn when you feel alone even in a room full of people?
Where do you turn when your tears can no longer be seen, and your cries can no longer be heard?
Where do you turn right before your blood hits the floor?
This world has turned its back on me
So I have turned my back on the world.
I'm all alone...
This pain has to end tonight!

Alone

I just moved here,
So scared and so consumed.
I hardly want to go any where other than my room.
I made some friends already,
But we hardly keep in touch.
Nobody likes me, at least not that much.
I lie and tell you stories so you think im cool,
But all I am is a crazy girl who tries to break the rules.
You say that you like me and then you turn around and speak,
To all your other friends that you think im a geek.
I've had a hard life that you've never known.
I want to be able to talk to someone,
So I can feel I'm not alone.
I know you may not like me, I know you may feel bad,
But once you just tell me I'm nice I'll be very glad.
Your friends make fun of me and say that I am dumb,
I try to hide at recess and pretend that I'm gone.
I know you see me,
You act as though you don't,
Please just be my friend so I am not alone.

I Love Spring

I love spring, its perfumed flowers,
To waltz with you in april showers.
I love to kiss & hold you tight,
On twinkling moonlit summers nights.
I love the autumns pink skies,
Reflected in your loving eyes.
But tis the winter I love the most,
The two of us warm as toast.
Should blizzards blow & Jack Frost come,
I'll warm my feet up on your bum!

*~* I FEEL LIKE A DYING ROSE *~*

*~* I Feel Like a Dying Rose*~*

I have done something wrong, as wrong as could be.
Living with guilt and awfulness, being something bad, which isn't normally me.
Now it has caused me to feel like a rose.
Not just any rose, but a dying one.
Let's face it, I'm filled with evil, that my soul and my heart has to live with and it cries
But wait, maybe, just maybe I have at least a pinch of good in me.
No, why pretend to be, thats the old me. When I'm feeling like a dead rose, as dead as could be!

HURT WITH A SHARP CUT

I've been cut, with a razor,
A blade, and even a butcher knife.

Sure that was painful but nothing
Could compare to how I felt last night.

Waiting up for you, boy you had no clue. Now I'm starting to think if you even cared.
I wouldn't even dare to let you wait up for me.. I wouldn't even leave.

Then you show up then say you're through.
Being cut physically is one thing, but being cut emotionally is another.
