Poems aren't written,
they're found,
Somewhere in your head the words are waiting,
They're sprawled across the floor,
You just need to pick them up,
Make a path with them,
Let your path guide observers,
And if you can't write,
Walk down somebody's else's path first,
First poem I've written, to anybody who reads this is hope you enjoyed it and it made you day a little better

And from the sky came rain
Not voices
No angels or demons
No face in the clouds
Just rain
Dampening sound from scream let free
Frustration given the reigns
But he's still alone
And the sky doesn't give a ****.

I wear makeup,

For the eyes
That witnessed a sleepless night.

For the face
Turned blue from your venomous bite.
I'll remember each word you uttered.

i'm crying in the bathtub
naked and alone
feeling uglier than ever
down into my bones
i want to thank you for loving me
only when it was easy
the water is keeps mixing with my tears
and for some ******* reason
i wish you were here
to wipe em away
kiss my face and say it'll be okay
but i know i know i know
you won't you won't you won't

Is anyone awake
I think I’m about to break
I can’t carry this alone
Can I possibly atone
Bad energy and fear surround me
they won’t let me be
I want it all to stop
The only way; to jump off a rooftop
Lay in the snow until I’m numb
go in the water letting death come
Down go all the pills I own
to numb everything as deep as my bone
Tie the bag around my head
to suffocate the demons until they’re dead
Slit every vein open in hot water
watch the blood leave like a slaughter
Hello? Is anyone awake?
I think I’m about to break.

Unconditional, Unintentional,
Yet forgettable in every aspect.
The only memories had slowly fade to Black,
Dwindling to nothing as dusk settles in-

Simple as that, forgotten

-Though from it's frigid grave the sun rises,
And your world is illuminated once more.
New memories to be made wait on the horizon,
But in the end you'll always be:

forgotten

I always thought we were the perfect match.
But matches are meant
                                   to ignite

Of who I could be.

Hair was smoother than a new blanket.

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 ***

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.

What is this coldness I'm feeling...?
The last shutter of my breath drawing from my lungs...
The light fades away from me...
It came like a thief in the night...
So sudden but yet unexpected...
Its only goal is to steal what you hold dear...
Death is on the loose and picking victims...

Why do I love you?

You don't love me.

You wouldn't give up your smile if it made me happy.
You wouldn't cry to take my pain.
You wouldn't take my place if I stared down a barrel.
You wouldn't protect me when my name is said in vain.

But the difference between us...

I love you

I would give up my smile if it made you happy.
I would cry to take your pain.
I would take your place if you stared down a barrel.
I would not let your name be said in vain.
I'm sorry I haven't posted in a long time. I have been sick and out of town. Family is my everything.

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

If you can
Stand at the crossroads
Don't look back at the path again
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!

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

Do you ever think
of a poem
that's amazing

and you're sure you'll remember
to write it down

but you won't
This is kind of my mood right now.
I want to consume because I feel empty
I’m exhausted
I’m stuck in the in between
Candles light fascinated me because it has a life and an ending
And in that short time it creates a warmth and a joy but then when it’s blown out it just stops beating
Like love
Love for me
I tried to stop this
But my detract and release makes it difficult to find the points that I stop being together and the points where I stop being okay
Where is the healing
The the wax melting back to its heart beat
And the wax making sure that it’s complete
The cycle seems never ending
I find it difficult to find me

‪oh earth,‬
are you sad today?
i can see your tears falling,
running down on your 'cheeks'
overflowing as it nourishes the land,
the scent of your drops,
as it hits your 'skin'
brings hope and calmness in me.

oh earth,
your sadness is my sadness,
your tears heal me,
as it helps us to grow stronger.

oh earth,
you're growing old,
and we will grow old together,
the time ticks,
soon when i die,
i will be inside you.

how do you name
this kind of strength?

the thing she loves most
shatters her, irreparably

shards sink to the depths
drowning she dies there

then recreates herself,
returning to care for it
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

Its the days when you don’t cry,
But you don’t smile either.

It’s the days when you’re quieter than usual,
And people notice.

It’s the days when you aren’t quite thinking about anything.

But if someone asked you what was wrong,
You wouldn’t know where to start.
