Stress riddled into my veins
A drug leaving my head in the clouds
No one cares about your stress
Just study for the tests.
3 in one day
What a gift
Stress in my veins
But it takes a lot to **** me.
down the road in which i walk alone
vines hug onto my legs, whispering "don't leave."
i comply with a sigh and sit down in the dirt
my heart and whole being really hurt
i keep being dragged here every day
with no chance of ever getting away
jeffrey conyers
Gone away.
Gone astray.
And like a bird seeking its freedom.
I truly understand.

That if I have been a better man?
We still be creating new forms of romance.

But I was all into myself.
Putting your interest to aside.
And now when I look back inside myself.

I support all the reason you left.
But understand this?
The door to you will always be open.

Never will it be closed to you.
If you ever shall seek to return.
Lips that have never been kissed
Hair that's never been brushed back
Cheeks that have never been caressed
Hands that have never been held

Yes, I know I dont need a boy
But it gets kind of lonely
These days I spend my time in wistful dreams
rachel kirkpatrick
the scent of incense
hangs heavy in the air
the constant murmer of voices
comes crashing like waves
but your eyes meet mine
and the faces disappear
the voices die,
all that remains
is an unspoken invitation
from my lips
willing yours to kiss mine
and yours happily
meet their request
leaving our love tasting
like oranges
tenderly plucked
from moonlight lips.
A Broken Poet
I want what every girl wants
Love that consumes me
Love that devours me

But I want what only I want
I want you
I want you to want me
Esther Krenzin
there is a door at the foot of my ribcage
that says "do not enter"
yet they knock anyways
inviting themselves into my home
only to leave
when they've seen enough.
Esther L. Krenzin
I don't think you're thinking of me
But I am always thinking of you

I don't think you want me
When all I want is you

I don't think you love me
Though I have undying love for you

I don't think you believe in me
Even when I have all my faith in you

I don't think you see a future with me
Well, my only future is with you

We go towards

Aramitz J Durant
the world is unjust
unready for you, little one.
just hold on
just one moment — wait,

don’t go yet. wait
for me, my legs are slower
than they used to be.
brittle, you know.
you and i are both

getting older.
wait —
don’t go yet. stay
just one moment.
i’m not ready.
I wore black
Event hough
I am still breathing
I am no longer

every day is a drag,
except it doesn’t feel as good as a cigarette.

i feel eaten alive from the inside out.

i am not me. i do not know me. me has been utterly swallowed by this demon living in my body.
Levi Johnson
I just have to look
at you
to feel it.

To know it
I have to look

Like the pages
of a book

Fragments of
information, the pieces
all out of place.


I believe you
beg to be

Dance in the dawning sun light
Feel the cool grass blades between bare toes
Today, you are free
Di Verse
Past predicts the future
When people are stagnant.

Laziness is a choice.
Intellectual laziness.
Spiritual laziness.

Don't work.
Work on yourself.
Spread the truth,
Not your thighs.

Work is sloth.
Truth is Love.
I'm not even hurt.
I'm not confused.
I'm happy, because of a person who is not you.
Thankful for my bestfriend LMAOO.
That *****, I love her

I do not want your
wasted mind
to settle,
if your heart
never had any
intentions of staying.
I like to think pretty girls are the luckiest
Because everyone notices them
But perhaps its me who is lucky
For not a soul notices me
And what's luckier then having the power
Of invisibility
I still remember the last time I saw you
and I remember the day I realized
it was really over

but life goes on, as things do
however, I still find myself
thinking about you

I’ve seen other people,
I’m sure you have too
but still, I really, truly do
myss you
i can't think anymore, i feel like i'm drowning and can't resist the pain anymore why did this have to happen? why me? and here we go again crying and for what? crying ain't gon help you for nothing might as well forget him and move on because at the end it's hes lost not urs.
Jordan Hudson
Have to admit I have no chance
I wish I could say I do but I can't
I gaze in the sky and think of you why
My eyes look away
I can't look at you
I just glance
Dreams won't come true
I wanna chance
Don't know what to do
I tried for months so many days
Haven't said one word to you but hey
I just wanna be brave
And my brain can be saved
And we can go our separate ways
Or stay together through the days
But either way
I'm afraid
But I gotta say
You look so great
And I'm sure you are
Out of all the stars, all the girls, all the ones
I picked you, I didn't look far
You probably wanna run
Because I am not the one
Don't worry I am done
Go have fun, find another one
The one that is meant to be
I can see us but you can't
Don't try because I'll cry when you won't
I can't just be a man
And face the truth I have no chance
My youth is lonely and long
This is wrong of me but I had to
I can't stop thinking of you
Have to admit I have no chance
I wish I could say I do but I can't
I gaze in the sky and think of you why
My eyes look away
I can't look at you
I just glance
I'm gullible
I crave sincerity
I'm fragile
That's not a lie
I want
to set her free
you need me, let go
so we can hold
each other.
if you must leave

if you must leave and i too
the streets are only going to be lonelier
our beds lonelier       still
the coffee in
our mornings will be lost
clogging  our drains
cause we don’t have use
for two servings
when we can’t even    sleep badly


that day i sadly discovered

my local store doesn’t stock
   one person french presses

another annoyingly romantic
thing about the french

the shopkeeper suggested
i try instant coffee
instant warmth has always been harder
on my belly

i much prefer the slower

i’ve always found it easier on my inside
Wish to midst in the air
As who breath longs as an air
Never known when will i get into air
To known atleast do i fix there
Enough getting tired
Paper faces and silicone smiles-
Where’d you get that mask, little girl?
Looks an awful lot like

If you could read my mind,
You’d see a thousand papers
Filled with broken poetries
And deadbeat proses
Full of woeful verses
With mournful pieces
Of unfinished stories
That are yet to be written
And failed to be spoken;
If you could read my mind,
You’d hear horrible screams
And earsplitting weeps
From shattered dreams,
Kept in a nasty notepad,
Scribbled on a bed
Of bloodstained words,
Ringing in my head.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see the shadows
That lurk within me;
You’d hear the bellows,
Screeching the words
“I’m tired,”
“I’m a failure,”
“I’m stupid –”
I know it sounds stupid,
It’s pathetically foolish
And seems too *******.
If you could read my mind,
You’d feel the tears
I had ever failed to cry;
You’d see the people
That make the weak weaker;
You’d see the monsters
That consume my head;
You’d hear the hollers
That failed to be freed;
You’d see the heart
That still bleeds and bleeds.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see the face
I’ve failed to show back then,
The face I’ve faked back then.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see a character
I had ever failed to become
If you could read my mind,
You’d be able to read
A book you never wished
To touch and read,
But sometimes I still wish
Someone could read my mind.
Jacob Lyons
Skipping beats like rain in July
It was unexpected, but here it is
Still my arms are burning inside
As the heat punches and kicks
Why did I put a heavy coat on?
Just to prove that I was strong?
Strength should be knowing best
And getting this out of my head
So I'll cut off my hair and then
Put sunglasses on instead
Watching the waves of fire
From a distance I can desire
The day has ended once again
But we both know it's not the end

Are we even meant to be?
We can't be our enemies
But I'd really hate to see
You with someone that isn't me
Quit saying you're sorry
We both know what you mean
That the grass could be green
But right now it's all dying
You always get my attention
And my heart, not to mention
I smile when I see your name
I smile when I see your face
The day has ended one more time
But we both know we have the night
What if
You have been fighting
A losing battle
All along
What if
The silence
Within you
Is only
The calm
Before the strom
It is going to be a fight
You just cannot

my biggest fear.
I’m scared as f*ck
to want you.

But here
I am,

Still wanting you
It was 4 am,
The world was asleep,
The stars were awake,
And just like every other night,
I thought of you,
Are you on the other side thinking of me too?
keep your eyes closed love.

"keep your eyes closed love. sometimes all you have to listen is to what the sound of the waves tells you to do"

When I was much younger, beaches were my second favorite places. I still love watching waves as they go by, crashing against each other and the whole process repeating all over again.
i feel like i'm rotting
from the inside out
i just really wish
not everyone would doubt

i'm rotting, can't you see?
he hurt me

I wanted to learn

so last night my fourth grade teacher
tore my eyelids off

and sat me near a television screen
that showed my mother dying
over and over
and over again.

I left as a cavity
of a boy,

collapsing at the sound of passing cars

as I searched for a payphone where
I could speak to the static about Gabriel.

(where is he?)

When I look at my brother and father

I beg for my eyes to be caressed until they’re scarred

with every daytime matinee
and curtsy on the train platform

that built me into this mosaic
of a “man”.
deeply personal. would appreciate kind words and condolences. my mother is alive but a part of me has died.
i can feel you
slipping from my fingers

the harder i try
the faster you fall from my hands

no matter what i do
you return to the sand

where i’m losing you forever
Jon Thenes
no picnic when panic
no streets unborn here

germinal ;
creature undresses
from his cool rubbery dead skin
scent free
into the sodium light
and works on its pallor

fleshed out from the plumbing
a manic talent
it sports the label , Mr. Talon
and favours a facade of mercurial cosmetics

a character most vividly colourful and male-ish
a voice
a maddened song
he breaks his face
and makes it a smile

armed with this sickle
bringing his comedic heavings to the public
he goes gory across the fresh laundry
a violence upon the canvas
a spree upon welcoming sadness
an open mockery
breaking ease
and seizing upon an audience

no more chiding
from within the shade
(egging on villains
and dropping muse-meal)
the folk hero
the prankster
this fierce performer of mischief
takes the stage
in a full suit of teeth-skin
and he’s really quite ravenous
for your abiding applause
‘popular in the mutterings
  founded in the gutterings
  bring out the chalk lines
  and biohazard baggies
  for this fierce performer of mischief !’
loneliness, an old friend
is knocking on my door again
and I’m trying so hard not to let him in
Sophia Clouse
Close your eyes, see the blank space...

Smell the light scent of vanilla...

Hear the soft sound of the piano...

Taste the peppermint on the tip of your tongue...

Feel your muscles letting go...

.... Relax.
Just follow the directions. concentrate. Use your senses... and relax.
Ariana Bagley
I love him
I tell myself
I know that
We will be together forever
I don’t believe that
We could be separated
My thoughts tell me that
He’s the love of my life
Sometimes my heart lies and says
I could live an eternity
Without him
Like my friends say
“We’re perfect for each other”
And you can’t tell me
He’s not the one.

Now read from bottom to top.

two bright eyes, nose, smiley mouth
