So am I loyal

for still loving you
Sofia Hinojosa
The brain becomes silent when the heart speaks.
i wish you weren’t with her
i wish you wanted me
i wish you’d see that she’s not right
i wish you’d see what we could be

i wish you’d hold my hand
and cherish me instead
but i need to accept you’re not mine
get it through my foolish head
classic “you belong with me” scenario
im still alive
sorry to disappoint
I know you love me
I feel it
As you sway beneath me
Every word,
Every touch
Attempted to break these walls
At first it was bliss
What once felt fun,
Now feels foreign
I don’t want to be here
I can’t be here
I’m sorry
Cup Noodles
but i guess you can't really force chemistry
but for whatever reason
my heart just doesn't give a ****
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

she looks
at the
broken cup

just like
my life
she sighs

she picks

to do next
I won’t lie.
Once those eyes met mine,
I imagined.
When I watched you run your hands through your hair multiple times,
I daydreamed.
But when I saw that genuine smile and laugh you gave once I made you laugh,
I fell.
Leo Janowick
Take my hand and say you love me.
I say I love you,
Look at me like that.

As If God...
I look at the time of worship!
As much romantic,
Just as kind,
Smile and let me watch you.

Because the love that...
The time of rain looks at the sky.
As much as with pleasure
As full of wishes
Take my hand and say you love me,
The way God looks in the mirror and says to himself
"two people" creating these was a mistake from the beginning!

swell up heart
swell your fleshy marbled cone
burst inwardly
beating lily of the dark
wrapped in veins of pyrite dust
ignited by the
the body’s brain
spread your secret moonlight
as milky dust
in pale rivulets of gushed
past every flapping
trunk and scapula
past labyrinths of ears
pool in larger pearls
than fondled
in a socket’s instinct
BJ Donovan
People are kind.
Blame it on me.
I lost you long ago
but you still haunt me.
Wander beyond sanity
and flights of fancy and
see what climbs up my
spine and whispers
"Life is empty promise".
I'm out of my mind. Stay.
Erin Reed
a fool
i am
  to convince myself
  that the words that flowed
  like the sound of a perfect melody
  from your lips,
  were the words
  of an honest man.
I always knew that you were trouble
But I let my selfishness get in it
And now I'm stuck with you
Creeping your way

I ask myself
Why do I do what I do?
I'm too loving
Too kind
Too generous,
I almost feel like it's never worth it
Because you just kept me
In a jar with pencils and sticky notes,

You use me, draw on me carefully
Enough to crack me
But never break me.
Ray Dunn
one with the rust,
trickling into the soils--
one more sip i just
gotta watch the smoke coil...
idk im bored and dont wanna do homework
Too full for a fool
Who must now eat every word
That he cries in the night
In place of saying [redacted]
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.
if you're ever wondering if you're in love
just think of that person as a flower
if you came across them
would you pluck it for yourself
or water it
would you water me?
Ismael Ramos
My heart aches.
There’s no cars outside when it’s night
But my mind is full of traffic
I’m at the intersection what way do I take?
Take the highway to my soul
But there’s nothing but a black hole
There’s a dead end to my brain
It’s no use we must turn around
The only was we know is the road to my heart
The road is lit up, like a suburb city
But where there’s light there’s darkness.
There’s fear
There’s sadness
There’s regret
My heart aches.
at this point,
i can't even tell
if it helps anymore
it's just a part of me
ingrained as deeply
as a love of stars
or running
until i can't breathe
just to drown out
the noise in my head
i have to wonder
will these scars
ever help?
i still feel like **** no matter what
Moon Cherry
I don’t need love in my life,
If i can’t loving you
No, I don’t need this heart,
If it won’t even beat for you
And I don’t really want to feel,
If i can’t feel you.
Love really takes everything
and give back everything.
I’m scared as f*ck
to want you.

But here
I am,

Still wanting you
She made her crown out of thorns and broken things and built a castle in her ruins
and became a forgiving queen.
with the way you were sitting there in

the moody lighting of that sunken bar

I could have sworn I felt cupid smack me in the face

and in a moment your lips were on mine
it happened back
then and it will
happen again

rain spattered
pavements teeming;
one thousand prismatic shades of meaning

graffiti-laden puddles splish, splosh, splash;
as midnight turns
to blue, and
dawn to

‘I walked up, and I walked down, and I walked straight into a delicately dying sky, and finally the sequence of observed and observant things brought me, at my usual eating time, to a street so distant from my usual eating place that I decided to try a restaurant which stood on the fringe of the town. Night had fallen without sound or ceremony when I came out again.’
- Vladimir Nabokov, The Vane Sisters

Jump without a parachute
Don't look before I cross
Take more pills then prescibed
Will this make the pain in my chest go away
Will this make my face stop crying
Will death take a failer like me.
Buried Words
I want to look as empty as I feel
My eyes hold all the pain
From my face happiness has been drained
It's hard for me to smile
It's been like this for a while
Noone has noticed yet
And noone will i bet
They are too wrapped up in life
To notice my struggle with strife
Noone cares enough about me
None has heard my plea
I think its my time to go
Because right now im at an all time low
Susan Nishimoto
Fairy tales are lies, lies
What happened to my prince?

He's imaginary
'Cause it's a fantasy

Where are you now my prince?
I believed you would come

Take me to your castle
So we can run away

I want to be with you
Don't leave me here my dear

The ending is near, near
Why did you deceive me?
Aramitz J Durant
a thousand i miss yous linger
in the sky, stubborn clouds that they
are. but i am not tall enough,
nor can i reach high enough to
bring them down and spill them upon
the floor for you. so they remain
there, unspoken, unrained, unloved.
We flow in circuits
Circling each other
You ignite a flow
Inside of me which
Always finds it's way
Back into you

I search out your eyes
When I'm wet in tears
And you never turn
Me down, you light up
With a smile so bright
I feel myself

No matter how long
I've left you hanging
You greet me like I
Just got back from Spain
And you want to hear
All the juicy

We speak in riddles
So much so that they
Don't believe you are
Really real or that
You tell me secrets
No one else knows
But us

And buried in all
Our tricks is a ***
Of honey so sweet
I switch from Eeyore
To Winnie in a
Holy instant
I sink

In the inter-webs
For now, I am yours
Virtually yes
If not in flesh yet
But the future holds
New layers of

For us and for all
Who lay apart from
Their loves, the distance
Isn't real in the same
Way it used to be
For us anymore
My love

No amount of space
Or time can unlight
Our flames, we're dancing
In ways we won't be
Forgotten soon or
Maybe ever
I dream

That we discover
New technologies
Bridging the gap from
Me to you and back
Again one day I'll
Rest your bones on
My flesh
Love poem
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.

Love is a drug, i wish to overdose on yours
                No Rehab Required
Love is the essence i breathe, only if it's yours
you are my one and only
your gaze make me feel like a super star.

"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 know you looked at me,
But I don't think you saw me.
A "poem" every day.
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.

I want to rip my name
              out of your throat  
You are not allowed
                  to speak it anymore.

I love broken things,
But I don't love myself.

As perfect as it is
In your head.
