WILLIAM WORTHLESS
it dosent take a lot to say that i love you
the words are only three that is just a few
it can me so much when its said out loud
bring you happines make you feel so proud

makes feel secure knowing love is there
just these little words shows you really care
not a lot say words are only three
happy ever after you will always be.

say them everday then they know its true
say from the heart there inside of you
it can me so much when its said out loud
bring you happines make you feel so proud

"I'm sorry," I remembered saying.
"I'm having a hard time with words right now."
My brother nods his head,
unsurprised and worried.
"I'm going to go get another drink," he says,
and I understand that much,
before words lose all meaning
again.

I grew up in the same place as Billy the Kid--
Grew up the same place and the same way, too.
All coyote-wild, howling, snarling, fighting
in the dirt and in the ditches of the desert.

I used to touch the walls of his mother's house and smell
the same air that he smelled, and when I touched the
smooth stones of a rock, pit-deep in the sand, I thought:
Did he touch this, too?

Did he know this, too?
Did he know what I know, the fear I know--
I told myself no, probably not, but I figured
that he fought for something and I'm fighting too.

Coyote-mad and coyote-*****, paws in the sand
and teeth bared wide in the sun. Hot and dry.
When my papa would run his hands down my face
I would think:

One day I'll **** you, and I'll run away,
and Billy's ghost will meet me at his mother's doorstep
and take me away to where the mountains of the West
meet the wilderness of freedom.
(September 17 or November 23, 1859 – July 14, 1881)

thinking in single digits is easy because i know what it adds up to,
every day is the same shade of grey
but you give me a million different numbers and a brand new set of colors
thanks for changing the way i see everything

Many times I've laid here on bed my pillows wet from tears that are falling down my
face
Bitter tears of sadness are
falling on my pillows tears that never seem to dry
no matter
what
For when you've loved as I have loved In life you will know just exactly what I mean
For the tears that you cry that never seem to dry for the love I have for Helen has never
faded

Sometimes
I feel like everything

Is held against me.

I wonder
Why you wonder
I don’t say anything
Anymore.

I can’t
Tell you anything
Anymore.
Is it okay to feel this way towards your own mom?

I played with words
much like I fed the birds

then suddenly became aware

they pulled together

have been a player ever since

I don't need to eat
I tell myself.
I spent all my money on drugs and tobacco
I'm broke
And have nothing left for food.
I have a tin of stale Christmas cookies,
A small bag of gingerbread men,
a bag of cashews with dried cranberries and banana chips,
And a few plane lasagna noodles left in the box.
If I ration it right I can eat one small meal a day for four days,
I must drink plenty of water.
I will be fasting for poverty and bad decisions this week.
Normally I leave myself enough to eat.

Let's tear her clothes
She is a doll , she says nothing,
Okay, she is fine.
Let's scratch her body
She says nothing,
Okay, she is fine.
Now let's cut her hair,
She don't feel
She don't cry ,
Okay, she is fine.
And our fun is over!
Now let's burn her
She says nothing,
Okay, she is fine,
She still smile.

The walls vibrate to the beats of your heart.
Creating impenetrable barricades.
I cannot leave without playing my part.
Walking on the light stuck in your shade.

I’ve been told I have walls,
That aren’t too easy to break,
They’ve been up for so long,
That my smile is entirely fake.
They’re made of unshed tears and a broken soul,
Of emotions that have taken their costly toll.
Tear them down if you feel you must,
But it takes too much to gain my trust
Strip me down to every pebble and stone,
Shatter me like a mirror and break me to the bone,
But don’t you see you’ve already lost,
For even my walls have a cost.
My friends say that I keep too much of it inside...I'm working on it guys I promise

A universe so black and scarce of light, Might it be that light gleams in the immortality of

Darkness?
I'm trying to return, but
1) Creativity is missing
2) I can't even get to hello poetry.com, like I can't even log in... Is there something wrong? I really find is scary because all my poems are on this site...

Hopefully somebody can tell me what's up.

Cheers!

I lost my tears in this fight,
Our love has disappeared like the morning light,
If I love again I will die of heartbreak,
I can see you when I close my eyes,
I can’t sleep, only agonize,
I wipe my tears with my sleeve,
Because I do not want you to leave,
Goodbye my love,
I cry with no reason to think of,
Goodbye.

You have a certain magnetism
I can't define it
I see your north and it's pointing
at my direction

I have never been this close to
falling in and out of love
within days
my heart is a stranger

I write songs to lull me to sleep
I envy the words that keep me sane
Hearing your heart beating to my voice
was all I wanted
not until yesterday

I have never been this close to you
not until yesterday you are all I want
I have never been this close to
falling in and out of love
within days

my heart is a stranger
my head is in a daze
it's raining while you're away
it's raining every day

I'm back!
So sorry everyone, the last few weeks have been... a strain on me.
I am still doing my media course and all, but mentally and emotionally,
I was slipping down into a dark place. My sleeping patterns have been messed up, my nerves have been completely out of control, my self-doubt, anxiety and depression drained me so much that I found it really hard to write, so I needed time to gather myself. It was so hard for me to pick up a pen. To do anything. My smiles were hollow and I just felt so lost.

I just wanted to apologise, I didn't mean to worry anyone. I'm truly touched by the out-pour of support for me. I got so many messages asking if I was alright. I can't express how much that warmed my heart. I'm so used to people being angry at me for my silence that it usually scares me to come back. By nature, with everything I've experienced, it's made me more and more of an isolationist. To all of those people, truly, thank you so so much for staying and just being kind to me...
Really. Thank you T-T
And thank you to all my followers, old and new.
245 followers... I can't even... T-T
I'm sorry if I sound like a broken record but thank you.
I'm back now, and I'm feeling better.
It's easier to hold my pen so I will resume spilling my ink.

I'll continue the Masked Bard on Thursday, I'm free the whole day.
I have no idea of my schedule the coming week.
Again, I appreciate everyone one of you.
Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts.
Thank you for staying with someone like me.
With much love,
Lyn ***

DOPE

Bliss in white powdered substance,
Sustenance for my arm and my soul,
Dreamy ambivalence
Staring at my pale white skin.,
The works, a Nymph,
Hot, moist and willing,
Penetrative to skin and vein
A warming embrace from  a perceived ugliness,
Tie off, plunge down and drop out.

Where oh where has my confidence gone
Self worth absent
Peace of mind is hardest to find
Compare and contrast
Quite the blast


Blast to my security
The one inside of me
These consistent kicks tc confidence
Needs to STOP hindering my thought process
DROP the ego, give it a rest
And ROLL in The Red Carpet and jewels

For the Self-Worth Gala
As it begins
So I too may begin
To win from within

I'm not staying,
it's my blame.
I'll leave the innocent;
I'm not the same.
I've got blood on my hands.
Pressure to understand.
You're right.
You've always been.
I tend to forget.
I won't bother you,
still my existence bothers me.
My mind smothers me.
The nights scare me;
comfort is scarce.
The dark makes things worse,
and this silence hurts.
It can be so loud,
the noise of nothing.
The sounds of your thoughts,
utterly isolated.
I love y'all;
but I don't love me.
I can't live up to what you all think of me-
all feedback is welcome and appreciated!
