we've all got Demons inside
the parts of us that we usually Hyde

i can't help wondering what it would Be
if we tuned out Society and turned off the light

i feel my Heart beating at the speed of light
come on at me, I'm ready to Fight
the Exhilaration replaces the fear

If you miss the old me don't shed a tear
cause he ain't got No place here
First poem! Let me know if you like it and if I should write more! Thanks :)

if i leave behind all that isn't mine
open up arms to the shifting of time
and let be what will be
would i see another picture of me?
of course i would.
what is it that I want to see?
it evades me this, this mystery.
capital panic
grubby fingers losing grip
as the drain opens
this is what we get for years of putting trust in fallible men and their greedy ways. Drain it and parking lot it.
As we rode our bikes,
through the fresh air,
along the beach,
through the woods,
through the fields,
but not everything has
a happy ending.
The fresh air soon becomes humid.
The beach becomes flooded.
The woods become filled with thorns.
The fields are perfect places for tornadoes.
Not everything has a bad ending.
The fresh air makes you breathe easy.
The beach has a beautiful sunset.
The forest has a wonderful breeze.
The field makes you feel so small and free.
Help me God
I feel so alone
I am just a kid
I can't take it on my own
Sadness filled my heart  I am sourneded by people but cannot see people
Ten words isn’t enough to describe you,
I’ve unsuccessfully tried
Harriet Shea
My very best friend in the world has left me, alone, missing him so, that I feel when he passed, part of me went with him, in fact
I know I went far above the universe with him and now he lives
deep within my lonely Universe.

His sister walks alone, no more where he goes she goes, she looks
sad, but I try to give her comfort the best I can..She will be up there playing on rainbow bridge with all my other beautiful animals I have
lost and felt the pain of loss, but with this dog, I have lost we had
a very special connection that will never be forgotten.

Special things I would do for him and miss so much..He always knew
what I was thinking, so did I know what he was thinking at one
glance..I can not look at his sister and not think about him, cause you
see when I look at her I see him with her.

I miss my little Pooh-Bear, he will always be with me all my life
he lives in my heart and soul..I love him dearly and he will always make me cry missing him..

Love you my best friend of the world

What’s with all the games?
It’s driving me insane.
I’ve never had any desire to play.
Just let me be free, but with you I’m trapped in a cage.
Petty mischief.
It’s no wonder I’m stuck in remiss.
No ones life should turn out like this.
Go to hell and let me live.
there is no light in this place
only broken mirrors
and black cats
and stairs as doorways.
it is too dark here for any man or monster to ever escape
i’d give you my heart, i think (circle, mitski)

Late night,
Sounds nearing slowly,
Getting closer than before,
Heart beating faster,
Sweat breaks free,
Hands sweating,
I sense their presence,
The little tiny creatures,
Banging against the closet doors,
Its like a different realm of existence,
Have you seen yours as well?
Julian Aleks Hope
It's like being stuck in a cave,
I want to find the light and claw my way out
But sometimes I wind up deeper than before
I don't want to lose my family, found or otherwise, nor my lover
But oh, did I mention the cave is underwater?
I only ever wanted to be a perfect daughter.
(Good night)

Oh beautiful friend
It’s time to close your eyes
We will meet again
and create a new sunrise

Your dreams feel the night
like a rainbow in the sky
There’s no longer a need to fight
or to justify

We will float in the darkness
with peace in our hearts
With no worry of sickness
nor Violence or force

We have found serenity
in the heart of silence
As we find our destiny
we will need no guidance

No more goodbye
and no more good night
Just the beauty in the sky
and Gods beautiful light

the Lost poet
Speak your mind be you
Be kind smart and not afraid
Spread your wings and fly
Indigo Dream
If I ever truly lived
I lived within him
If I ever truly loved
it was only beneath him
I am afraid of being changed
because I don’t know that girl

what will be left of me?
A poet is no more than a person
A mother
A daughter
A lover  
Someone needing release
Or someone needing to recover

It’s the art they create when that ball of ink or stick of led dances on the canvas they so perfectly prepared.
And when the end result and their purpose become perfectly paired.
this is
we're falling in love
taking our time.
this is
we're caught making love
we're out of line.

this is, the happily-ever-after that was meant to be.
this is, your dream of growing old
but not with me.

this is the hot regret in your stomach
this is the cold prison you've never wanted
this is a daydream gone grey
this is the cycle of pain you just can't escape
this palace built on pleasant patience-
aged well with genuine grace-
underneath these wallpapers
a smell of rot-
an infiltrating sour scent of danger-  

this is the crushed rock wall in my soul
this is myself never to know why-
since ignorance makes the best slaves-
I will resist  to change
this is ironic ig
I once was
in a hospital for depressed people
and I have never seen a place where roles
were switched
in such a paradoxal way.
Also the doc's final statement to me was: Well we think something must have just really made you insecure. Next time that happens, just do anything to distract yourself - clean the windows if necessary, just anything really!
This was such a symbolical statement. I think the doctors were much more scared inside than I was. I just stirred them up.
Don't ever hand over your own healing powers. You always have them.
I sell sand
in the desert.

I sell leaves
in the forest.

I sell ice
in the glacier.

I sell tears
in the city.
gather my pieces for i'm a cloud got shattered by violent wind
gather me softly and pass with your fingers on the cracks of my soul
heal them and I shall be forever yours
i said i don't know if i believe in soulmates
and you told me that you believed in me and you.
i laugh at the irony
that love broke my heart.

A glistening moonlight
shines upon us both.
Trees lie awake bearing fruits of truth.
An apple, like a stud in my throat.

A forsaken knowledge,
a loss of courage,
we see the truth in our lives.
So long have we lived deprived.

With a betrayal of trust, he forced us out
and away from home we went.
No longer in Eden, expulsed for treason,
we made do with our new-found freedom.
I'm that waitress
Every guy wants to be served by
Wants to talk to
Wants to bring out on a date
I'm that waitress
Guys would want to hit on
Want to bring back home
Want to take advantage of
Sadly that's all I'll ever be
A waitress they want to get laid by

Maybe someday
One day
There will be a guy
That will say
She's that waitress
I would want to marry
And have my future with
Maybe one day
I'd be a waitress
That people would view with good intentions
Close your eyes
Count to ten
Take a breath
Find a pen
Write it out
Let it loose
Don't get lost
In these woods
For one day
You might get stuck
Way too far
In the muck
i never believed
i could become
consumed entirely
by another person,
but this rabbit heart
aches for you
and without any doubt,
i would follow you
to any ruin.
Noni Winters
I stumbled upon you
Like a child
that finds a pretty stone

Bewildered by your presence
I sat and admired
Counting your cracks
Caressing what makes you glitter

You stood infront of me
Bold and beautiful
Like nothing I'd ever seen

And as you gave me your attention
I think I misconstrued your intentions

I wanted to put you in my pocket
But you said no

So there you sit
Perfectly unpolished
A love

I can only visit
She takes the stand
With the voice of millions on her back
And speaks the fact that we all know,
far too well to be true -                  
                                           Me too.

She is heard but not believed,
She is heard with faith deceived .

When will it be enough -
Is one in six not enough ?
Is one sister, one friend
still - not enough?

one colleague, one mother, one wife, one lover -
one teacher, one doctor, one preacher, one author -
one husband, one son, one brother.
Which one will it take, to stop
the non-consensual clock
and make us realise that -

Time. Is. Up.
i mean,

  let's be frank

you haven't
from me
  in a lifetime.

nor have
  i wanted
or wasted
   my moments
    in you!

i know
   what we are
and what
   we should do

  just put
more makeup
   on that pig...

but eventually,

  you too
will realize that
  no amount
of makeup
  can pretty
what is ugly.

'Yours and everyone's concrete-poet'
I see you
I see me
Not being chosen
I see you having more fun
I see you walk by casuallly dismissing me
I see your lips with a dark shade of  maroon moving and not a single moment of silence
I see your  brown eyes not even glancing  towards me
I see the red-brown of your hair but they face me
I see your long silver earings dangling and shaking as you laugh
I see the golden bracelets in your hand  slide back as you tie your hair
I see you
I see me
                             All alone
When you are nothing more than a second choice
Lily Barrett
Waking up to nothing
But there was once something
You can feel it
It was there and now it's not
What was it you wonder
As the dark pulls you under
What did I miss
And what did I lose
That made my heart bruise
You wander in and out
Of yourself and other things
And you don’t know
Where exactly to go
You had a purpose
you know that for sure
But why suddenly
Is it there no more
Someone grabbed you
And pulled you apart
And now you’re left
With a broken heart
Hello Moon,
Where are you tonight?
Are you busy stealing
Someone else's starlight?
I miss your cold hue
Draped in aquamarine dreams,
Now filled with empty bedtimes
And thoughts of you.

Midnights come and go.
I lie lifeless and alone
Forever searching windows
For your eyes dipped in stone.
Do your cold hands reach for another,
Across new sands, in silhouettes together?

Tell me Moon,
Why did you leave me,
With this constant hopeless
Shimmering black sea?
With each passing tide
I see your reflections,
A sparkling mirage
Of lights long died.

Still Moon,
You remain a silent black.
An abyss of endless memories,
Broken chances and cracks.
But Moon, don't worry
Through them I see
A life once hidden,
Now finally freed.
Your forever night is done.
Goodbye Moon,
Hello sun.
Moon....let me sleep. I've let you go. So Goooo.
he called me by my middle name
“i love you liz”
that’s what he said
“i’m so lucky to have you liz”
i’m sorry liz
i’m sorry i’ve treated you so horribly
liz, liz, liz, liz, liz
now i hate my middle name
He tells me I'm his sunflower.
And he's always liked roses,
but he'd walk through a field of thorns just to find me.
her hands fall onto him
as darkness smothers them
existential, then inward
what am i doing here?

sirens lull to a hum
water drips from the table
picturesque, nature's splendor
save the foliage
he fumbles with her hair
he's had one too many

she can't placate the night
despite the times she's tried
she tries to place a face
in the cracks in the paint

existential, then inward
what am i doing here?
I'm jealous of the rain
It gets close to you
Closer than I ever will
It touches your skin
It combs your hair
It comes when you're sad
It stays when you're happy
I love you but you don't love me
So I say
I'm jealous of the rain
Sorry I haven't written anything as of late. I have been really busy with school. I really hope you enjoy.
Edit: thanks for the comments the original song is Jealous by Labirinth
Joseph Rice
The you and I
In my future bides time
For my dreams to combine
And put you before my gray eyes.

Beautiful light clashes with my ugly darkness
Eradicating the masticating thoughts of rejection

Smile at me please
Maybe my frozen stone heart will unfreeze
Caela Bay
Seven years is long enough
    to change everything about one's self.

New hair,
   New clothes,
   New friends.

Your favorite movie probably isn't even the same.
But I remember what it was half a decade ago,
               and it's still my favorite.

Your voice is deeper now,
your words arent as sweet.
I have no clue what has happened to you
in the past seven years.

But I won't get over the fact
that your eyes are still kind,
and I imagined marrying you one day.
We are the sun and moon
Created as a pairs
But never really be together
We can only greeting each other at the dusk
Too busy filling the beauty of the horizon
the world keeps turning,
you fall down but please get up,
take another step.
TearDrop Girl
The pretty perfect girl
Appealing to see
Funny personality
A+ Grades to boot
Smiling from eye to eye
Stands out in every crowd
If she is the light
I am the shadow
Follows, the silent
Avoids, the cowardly
Invisible, the lonely
Forget, the bland
Quiet, the ignored
If there is a light
A shadow will follow
Someone show me the
Light, please.
