i miss that time,
i miss my love,
and i miss those eyes.

If you'd known the last time you saw me,
that we were close to the end,
would you have held me a bit tighter?

i sit alone
in a room full of people
i observe the groups
they laugh, they talk
i sit silently trapped
inside a cell i made myself
inside my head
i scream wanting to leave
wanting someone to save me
but lower i fall
i can fake a smile
fake a laugh but
what no one sees is the girl inside
but still i say i'm living
i can say i'm fine
but one day
when im older
i will defeat depression

A special person,
A special face,
Someone I love,
And can never be replaced.
i have a special person.

what is solitude?
a cocoon of iridescent
paintings of oil on bulletproof walls
mama’s warm embrace in fetal form

a prison of darkness
where no one knows your face
where reflections are only imagined
where hands are far from reach
and reality is...

a place where beauty is created
creation is sentence
and sentence is desolation

you ask me if i love you.
so i say
“i feel like i do.”
but sometimes my feelings lie to me
and i don’t want to do that to you.

the blue glow of the television screen
mimicked the moonlight through the car window
where sat, Kate and i, in silence, watching
after a day gone that began with my name and hers

continued on until her slumber
whilst a lunar halo around me kept me walking in the night

the Georgian oak canopy hangs around like aurora borealis
i’ve never noticed it before

Nestled deep in their black holes

every day I spend away from you
returns me back to normal
I belong to myself for once

if you're near
everything I've been practicing disappears  
I'm yours again

just let me breathe on my own
and set me free
from your controlling grasp
and your unyielding touch
and let me be me

I
s t a r e  
at the clock,
my chin to my knees.
5 more seconds
and I'll never be fourteen.

4 more seconds
the clock ticks so loudly,
spelling out the last seconds so clearly.

3 more seconds
a new chapter of my life.
So very soon, it will arrive.

2 more seconds
I smile to myself.
For a new beginning,
I must first have an end.

1 more second
I  close my eyes.
3, 2, 1

it has arrived
My birthday
as i dig deeper
i find pieces
shattered
scattered
lost
you
dismantled

as i dig deeper
i collect the pieces
re-build
re-organise
now found
new you
restored

as i exit your heart
i look at you
a masterpiece

Muse
Heaven have mercy,
On Earth, there’s fury,
We pick up our sticks,
We play just for kicks.

Our muse has spoken,
From beyond the vast ocean,
Waves upon the fire that can’t seem to be put out.

A cry beckons from the dungeon,
Of mystical moans that’s felt in the bones,
We travel back to infinity.

she is the girl that has a few best friends. she is the girl that laughs the hardest at her own jokes. she is the girl that expects way too much. she says she doesn't care what other people think, but deep down, she does. she is the girl that will hang up on you but then will call you back and say sorry. she is the kinda girl that will put all of her trust in you until you give her a reason not too. she is the girl that will never leave your side when you need her. the girl that will go out of her way just to cheer you up. she is the girl that says she isn't ticklish, but she really is. she is the girl that will not give up on you of she really believes in you. she is the kind of girl that truly believes in love...

I used to call you many names.
Nightingale, vocals calming;
Rose, scent as sweet as can be;
Sugar, taste most delectable.
Where are you now?
Where is my Nightingale?
Where is my Rose?
Where is my Sugar?
Where is my Helen?

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

only the right one

Dear friends,
Now I must ask a favor.
A poetry contest is under way,
$100 dollars worth of books at stake,
The entry?
A poem about that for which I am grateful.
This means a lot,
Oh, Nerd I am!

All this emotion crashing down like waves
I feel all warm like a nice summers day
I cant keep lying to myself on my feeling for you
Every time im with you they burn bright blue
I dont understand why you just dont leave him
Then again you just like the attention that im given and im always caving in.

“goodbye”
the words crawl from your mouth.
they sound like their on their knees,
begging to be let go.
you tell me there isn’t a point anymore,
but i cover my ears
and claim i’m not listening.
the pills you swallowed,
the calls you never answered,
“goodbye,” you croak again.
i answer no,
but goodbye isn’t a question.
my dear friend attempted suicide two years ago, thank god she’s okay

I found your earrings on my window sill
I’m not sure how long they’ve been there or
If you know they’re missing
I’m too scared to move them
So I just pretend not to see

She found your earrings on my window sill
I didn’t know what to say
It’s been months and I can’t even utter your name
Still you lie on the window sill

Winter came and found your earrings by the window
Cold and harsh
That’s what I loved about you
I wonder what you loved about me
Did you love these earrings?
Do you think of them
Do you think of me?

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!

No matter who you are
You have my deepest respect
I love you all!!

Who said explanation marks were merely laughing at your own joke?!

Actually my grand daughter gave me this poem!

If you were to squeeze a poem
It still would ooze love or ***

To say the least, perplexing.
one would think it’s all been said

The scent of skin
The taste of dusk

It’s all been tarnished with layers of ink

But talk to me of squalor
The sweet dirt under your nails

And you still will fail to impress
But that’s never been the point

I sail alone on the hopeless sea
With just the stars to fill my view
You are a firework that lit up my sky
now the smoke is just the memory of you

In that moment, you gave me sight
But now it’s darker than before
My lonesome shadow adjusts in my eye
just me and the stars, forevermore

I am your journal, I am your razor blade, I am your pillow to scream in, I am your father and your mother, I am the blood you hear beating in your ears on quiet nights, I am your guide and your confidante and your consort, I am the one who takes the weight of the world from you, I am anything you need. Wear me like a warm coat, I am yours if you say yes; yours until you discard me, then I belong to the next. I can fix everything, I can be every drug, I can do it all say yes, say yes yes! my love say yes, yours, yours till I’m not yours yours yours

Los días aquí
Pasan muy rápidamente
Y yo no sé
Si este es bien o mal

Por ejemplo
Siento triste todos los días
Pero los emociones van
Como la gente en la acera

Sin embargo
Emociones de felicidades
También salen
Muy similar
O no les aparecen enteramente
I wrote this a while back when I wasn't quite adjusted to college yet. I am also not fluent in Spanish, but I wanted to try this out! Hopefully, I can get better!
