Diamond skies.
Moonstruck eyes.
Silent lips
Tells no lies.
Stardust quietly floats around,
A frozen blanket mutes the slumber town.
The chill runs deep
While the season sleeps.
But my heart is warm,
And that, you can keep.

I think I’m yours to get over her.
She knows everything about you.
Your Schedule
Your Address
Your favorite food
Literally everything

What do I know?
Nothing

I wanted to take you home
From whatever may have happened
And sleep in til the late morning sun.

But by my own hand
I take a away that which I long for the most.
I'm not much
But if you lose me
You'll know it

no one thought to ask the little girls why  they did it
why they cut and burned
why they starved and retched
and otherwise mutilated themselves
because they were so beautiful
and didn’t they know?
but they never asked us
not outright
we knew what we had to do
and we didn’t wonder why
we were just slaying the monsters slowly
and that was more beautiful than we could ever be

Chloe Haas
My periods turn to semicolons
My suicide notes to poetry
My goodbyes become hellos
The blades turn to sunflowers
And the bullets, a rose
My heart still is broken
But the pieces have been found
Death isn’t for me anymore
What is, in the here and now
I still don’t feel enough
But I am alive
And that’s enough to say
Today is not the day I die.

Is this world reality
Or is it just a dream
If so I’d like to wake up
Though it doesn’t seem to end

Upon the end of this dream
On waking from this life
Will I remember my mistakes
And minimise the strife

This world has already became blind
No one can see
It’s empty pride.

Greed,
Is this world’s
Strong need.

It’s faceless
Toys
Is already graceless.
The lost world of humanity.

Words are like poison,
But it streams down your mouth.
And foams at the corner,
But you're not aware
With eyes that are watching you
As you speak.

When you smoke a cigarette;
have you ever
tasted the of tar
far bitter than your life?
Life is pretty. Pretty onerous, I mean.

I’ve brought you daffodils and daisies,
Your favorite they said
I believe nothing has changed ever since I left you
Same flowers same taste
But the only thing that’s changed my dear,  
Is your existence
I miss you
And I love you  
Always and forever  
Till we meet again!
Be fierce and strong
Continue to make progress
Maintain a positive demeanor
Build yourself through the process
Always lift yourself upward
Be your own source of motivation
Put your heart into everything
Continue on with your determination

Everything I see now is like a dream
And as colors began to fade
Their souls started to merge
as what autumn and winter did
Slowly creating a wonderful moment
A beautiful image
Like a rainbow after the rain

Or it's the best thing she's ever done
Letting me go
Letting me off

you started it with a nick
and end it
with a twinge
but it's my overthinking that
tore it apart
and broke my own heart

And if I scream your name to the wind,
maybe it will stop resonating inside...
And then you will stop hurting me...

It doesn't matter when I push myself into the darkness

It hurts the most when you're the one to push me

you hurt me in many ways
reflect all your anger on me
I was convinced it wasn't my fault

the damage is done
you planted the idea
my head soaks it up

you push me into the dark
hurts a billion times more
than
pushing myself

I wish I can go back in time,
and take back everything I've done that has damage us.

I wish I never fell in love with you,
I wish I had listened to myself in the beginning.

I focused too much on the idea of you and me together,
I forgot that expectations never met reality.

I just let everything flow itself,
and maybe someday faith can bring us together.
Only if someday ever exist.
so... I am really have given up on liking this guy. He grew distance to me all of a sudden, and I wish it never happen. This was I fear.

He says I should stop being kiddish...
What he doesn't know is
That I love this innocence of us

He says go for it ...
Either say or make him do it
N I m here waiting for exact time

He says u both r noob
Well he is right
Maybe that's what makes us stupid enough
to know each other

He says get mature
Take desicions
N I m just pondering
Not to get hurt
Thanks rags u always advice me good ...this one is for u geeky guy I know u ll find alot of mistakes in this too

Him
He skinned me alive,
He used me too.
He trashed me again,
But said “I love you”.
He made me insecure,
But i had a breakthrough.
I’m glad we are done,
It’s not me - it’s you.

the wrong one
will find you in peace
and end up leaving you in pieces

only the right one
can find you in pieces
and guide you to peace

Whether a comma, or colon:
Punctuation slows my rolling
I need no period. When I end
no Capitalization when I begin
Rulelessly I flow my art
  Not a single!
Explanation mark
Are you not the one
Who'll know?
Where a question mark
No longer goes

Warp the structure
Bend the lines
Put in repeat
Let emotion unwind
Make yourself
Your poetry's the best
Be your own ruler
Pass your own test

Take your own road
Where ever it leads
Lover or hater
It's all poetry!

Actually my grand daughter gave me this poem!

I say “ I don’t know “ alot
And I mean it
I’m not embarrassed to say
That I don’t know
I’m not scared of being
A human
In fact
I don’t know
what’s the point of
Knowing
Why do we exist? I really don’t know

I can’t pull him
Close enough
Fast enough
There’s no pull
Only magnetism
In our lives.
Hope he’s got wheels on that chair :D

Just as the moon pulls the ocean in on itself,
So have you caused my heart to recede into its darkest corners.
The once glittery trails of moonlight on the glassy waters
Are replaced with the dull reflection of what used to be.
And what we used to call love, we now call just a memory.

ok okay
Depression is numbness
Anxiety is pain
When they are mixed
It is like fire and rain
Except the fire never goes out
And the rain only becomes heavier
3am thoughts
Depression is rain and anxiety is a raging fire

This is the way I deal with it
The venom between the lungs which sinister stirs on the shortened breath of shaky self-esteem
The poetic palpitation pleading please write your wrongs before they putrefy
This is the way I deal with it
It is when words dry up that the ink bleeds
Dance around your feelings, call it a campfire
Let others at least roast with the remnants of yours
This is the way I deal with it
For some it is to light the fire
For others, to follow the smoke

I never knew
that I could become
so enthralled
               and entrapped
                              and enamored
by one person

until

I met

you.
