Our love is worth
Our love is worth
Trying for,
Fighting for,
And even
Dying for.
240 · Oct 2020
So be it.
I've been waiting for you
My entire existence.
If that means I have to wait
A bit more to be in your arms,
So be it.
Because you are so worth
Every minute if it means
The rest of eternity.

Unable to sleep
I stay up at night
Unable to sleep
Because I know if
I do indeed dream
I will wake
Disappointed with reality.

Pain is temporary.
Tears are temporary.
Fear is temporary.
Failure is temporary.
Nightmares are temporary.
Storms are temporary.
Darkness is temporary.
Coldness is temporary.
Immortality is temporary.

So just keep moving on, dear.
It will be worth it.
All of that hurt,
All of the bad that you feel,
It may seem overwhelming;
You may feel like you’re drowning
And can’t get back to the surface,
That it’s pulling you deeper...
But just know you can get up.
There are people who can help you swim
Through that deep darkness.
There is always someone
Who loves you and will miss you.
There is always tomorrow,
A chance at a new day for better things.

All of the bad is temporary
As long as you can keep hope.
Know there will be some bad days
But it will get better,
The good WILL outweigh the bad,
I promise you.
So you just gotta keep your head up, darling,
And keep walking.
This isn’t the end.
There is so much beauty and good to come
As the sun rises, so shall you.

Eternal Flame
Let me be your end, baby.
Let your heart know
No more pain.
Let me fill every crack
From that broken heart.
I promise to hold you forever
And let go never.
Our fire of love shall know of no end
Let it be an eternal flame.

Maybe When I'm Dead
Maybe When I'm dead
People Will know of my heart,
My fate, my words and my mind.
Maybe they'll finally care -
Finally read my words.
For my poetry is my eulogy.
Maybe when I'm dead,
People will know of my pain.
With my tears and blood
through these lines, rhymes, and stanzas -
May they see the true me.
And maybe when I'm dead,
I may finally be called a poet.

If I've Known
If I've known I was yours,
I would've known
What I was living for.

For you, eternity, I shall wait.

I don't want to live,
But I don't want to die.

Addicted to you
You are my drug and I’m addicted
Whenever you are gone; withdrawal.
Every chance I get, I need a hit.
It is no longer a question of want.
For you make my fantasy reality,
You are my eternal happy pills
And I can’t lose that.
You are what keeps me living
Even as you **** me -
I shall love you forever.

Shadows of the past
Shadows of the past flicker in sight
And when I think it will all finally be over
I feel--everything.
Unable to say goodbye
I cry.

No escaping me
I remember and just die.
For I am not yours anymore
As you are not mine.
98 · Oct 2020
What was and no longer is
I can’t relive the past
But I continue revisiting
What was and no longer is.
Drowning in your laugh
Long but forgotten.
You kiss her and **** me.

Suffered Sufficiency
I am not yours anymore
As you are not mine.

The breaking of my heart
The breaking of my heart felt like -
A noose around my neck,
A knife to my back,
A grenade in my stomach,
Poison in my brain,
And water in my lungs.
All at once...
But the pain never left.
89 · Oct 2020
My bleeding heart
Here I remain
A hole in my chest
Because I gave you my bleeding heart.
No longer beating
You robbed me of everything
What more do I have?

I am nothing without my love
And my love, how could you?
You stole my heart
You stole my breath
You stole my mind
And now you take my words.
84 · Sep 2020
My Scarlet Letter
You are taken.
All I want
Unable to have
You are my scarlet letter.
I would pay any price to make it right
To get you back.
83 · Oct 2020
Memories flood
To the surface
And I drown
In the icy,
Black water
Of yesterday
As tomorrow’s
Shadow passes
Me by.
You shall no longer take any more of my words or my tears.
I am done crying and writing.
For you fill my mind and I become blind.
79 · Oct 2020
Love me
Love me,
Or **** me;
For I shall take it
No other way.

Let Our Love Rain Down
Let our love rain down
Like the bullets
For Bonnie and Clyde.
I’ll **** for you
But don’t be mistaken,
I’d also die for you.
For never was a story of more woe,
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.

In the end

My Clyde
My Clyde,
You said you’d always
Protect me, never leave me.
**** and be killed for me.
That together, we’d burn
The world that broke us.
And I was your Bonnie,
You had all of me.
I was willing to do anything,
But now I’m just a memory.

Memento Mori
What did the Roman servants say
At the backs of the victorious generals?
After a victory, during a parade...
‘Memento mori’ -
Meaning: remember you are mortal.
May you as well feel pride,
But never forget to be humbled.

Lonely Heart
You wish me luck and happiness…
With someone else.
But there’s no one else,
My heart was set on you.
You were the only one, lover.
And now my lonely heart dies
Every minute you are no longer with me.
74 · Sep 2020
I'm fine.
At least
That is
What I say
So you
Do not
Have to

We need emotion.
Not what we can pick and choose,
But all of them.
Not everything can be good times
And happiness.
We need to get lost
So that we can be found.
We need to be in the dark
So we can find the light.
We have to get our heart broken
To know we were loved.
We gotta bleed
To know we are alive.
We gotta live
To know we can die.
We gotta feel pain
So that we can know
What it’s like to feel okay.
We need to make mistakes
In order to grow.
We need to fall
So we can learn to get up.
We need to love
So we can conquer hate.
We need to feel
So we can know we are human.
That is why we need emotion.

Break your heart
I want to take your entire heart
All of your love - all of you.
I want to be your world - your everything...
And then I want to break your heart.

I want you to write poems after me.
If you are even able to sleep -
I want to be in your dreams,
Forever haunting you.
I want to make you hurt,
I want your soul to bleed.
To curse you with eternal tears.
Baby, just let me break your heart -
Like you did to me.

To Live For
Who do you have to live for, if not yourself?

All along
All along I was blind,
While you Dragged me By the heart.

While You've Been
While you’ve been smiling
I’ve been dying.

While you’ve been laughing
I’ve been crying.

While you’ve been kissing her
I’ve remained alone.

While you’ve been talking with her
I’ve been drowning in silence.

While you’ve been dreaming
I’ve been thinking of you.

While you’ve been happy
I’ve been writing stupid poems
And wishing death upon myself
Because I see no light at the end of the tunnel.
Like 3 of my poems were too long and I feel like not many peeps read them bc of that, so I decided to break them up as best as I could into chunked single poems.
71 · Oct 2020
I write my pain
I write my pain.
Every word is a tear.
I cut through the paper
With a pen
Instead of my wrists
With a knife.
Replacing my blood
With rhymes and lines.
A poem is born as I end my life.

The Forbidden Fruit
To take a bite of the forbidden fruit
I wouldn’t mind being ****** for eternity
As long as I had you.
Being strong is wrong
Let the weak peek.

Never the victor
I’ve been looking for happiness,
But it’s this never-ending
Game of hide and seek
Where I am never the victor.
The grace of tomorrow
Only chains me.
The dreams are the only escape,
But alas, they never last.

Haunted Heart
A haunted heart
With the eternal
Ghost of you.

Deep in Love
Deep in love,
Buried 6 feet under,
You’ll find me crying.

Black dirt in my mouth,
In my heart,
I remain dying.

The weight is unbearable
And I’m left suffocating.

I can’t hold my breath forever.

Help me up,
Hold me,
And let go never.
Title inspired by 'Deep in Earth' by the infamous EAP. I took it down and am reposting parts.

Be free
You have every right to be free
I don't want to keep your heart
Locked up and in chains
Holding the key with a title
Be free, my friend,
Love others, none, or many
Your heart has room for many.
I am your friend and that's just fine by me.
67 · Oct 2020
In misery - dying
I was starving until I met you.
Feasting on your words
Of 'I love you' and promises,
My love grew.

Not knowing the only one
I cared about in the world
That I’d do anything for
Was the one that left me all alone
In misery - dying.

The Final Scene
Every step gets heavier,
Breaths shorter,
As my eyes begin to gloss over,
I fall to the floor.

Facing the sky,
Above me I see darkness creeping down,
And a final star--a shooting star.

As one last tear rolls down my face
Touching the earth,
I wish my final wish:
To have the strength to get up and have the courage to try and keep going.

But the pain takes over
And it’s too late and I realize I’m done.
This is it, this is the end.

I love you.
My heart finally stops.
I breathe in and breathe out my final goodbye.
Cause of death?
A broken heart.
61 · Sep 2020
I just want to die.
I don’t want to feel anymore pain.
I’ve been hurt too many times
And cried too many tears.
Not enough happiness to make me stay.

Just let me go
No anchor to delay.
Too much loss
And the only gain; from weight.

My broken heart is irreparable.
The last blow turned it to sand
And the wind carried it away.

I am empty inside.
With no light
I remain in the dark.
Lost and alone.
R.I.P dad (08/12/67 - 09/12/20)

Truly Tired
How much more
Do I have to sigh?
How many more tears
Do I need to cry?
How much longer
Do I need to try?
When will you see
That I’m so unhappy?
Let me fly
Or let me die.
Final goodbye.
60 · Sep 2020
In the end...
It wasn’t me that made you smile.
It wasn’t me that made you happy.
It wasn’t me that made you laugh.
It wasn’t me that made you want to get up in the morning
It wasn’t me who you met in your dreams.
It wasn’t me who you lived for.
In the end, it wasn’t me that you were in love with.

My Mirror's Perspective
Why don’t you visit often?
Why do I never see your smile?

Do I make you sad?
Do you not like me?
Why do you glance at me
For a second and turn away the next?

Always with a frown
Sometimes you stand in front of me.
I watch as you brush your hair and teeth.
Putting on some mascara and lipgloss.
Dear, you already have a beautiful face.
I see you often change your outfit
And you sigh, so frustrated -
Yet I thought you looked great.

I watch you sitting on your bed
Silent tears running down your face.
I notice how the time flies as you stay there
Eating one meal a day
Waking up at 12.

I see you on your laptop all day -
Doing homework or just
Distracting yourself from all of the pain.

Writing in your journal
No one else knows your mind -
What’s in your heart -
Your eyes -
The weight on your shoulders -
And all of the sadness that consumes you.

When you finally take your mask off
And step off the stage of life at night -
Only I can see the real you.
58 · Sep 2020
I Miss You
May I say that I miss you
Because it’s true.

I miss your heart
Your laugh
Your eyes
Your tears
Your body
And your words...
All of you.

And I fear that longing
Will never fade
Nor ever leave.

I Wish You a Broken Heart
I wish you a broken heart.
I wish you pain and I wish you tears
Just so you can know how it feels.

I wish you to be consumed by sadness
Where time seems to pass you by.

I wish for you to stay up all night
Unable to sleep
Just wondering where you went wrong.

I wish for you to feel as messed up
And depressed as I did
In every moment of every day.

I wish for you to feel everything
Because it seemed to be
That you felt nothing.

I just want you to have a little taste
Of the misery and sorrow I’ve endured.

But, I really don’t wish you a broken heart
Because it’s worse than torture.
And I’m not like you
I’m no monster.
Like 3 of my poems were too long and I feel like not many peeps read them bc of that, so I decided to break them up as best as I could into chunked single poems.

Choking on what-ifs
And suffocating on memories
You left me buried in a shallow grave

No one to hear my cry for help,
No one to see me,
My screams remain stifled in my throat
Unable to pass my barely parted lips.
No air in my lungs
I remain silent.
Silent and forgotten.
56 · Oct 2020
Our love
Our love
Started from an ember
Underestimated and barely visible.
Flying through the wind, searching.
With oxygen, it was brought to life.
Spread, grew and
Lit this cold, dark world like a sun

Then, after time, it burned everything
All that was left was the cold, dark, dirt floor.
Nothing left to keep it alive
It shrunk, choked, and suffocated.
Death finally took our love.

To Be Okay
I wish for you to be okay
But I know I can’t make you okay.
Nothing can make it okay…
Only time.
My grandma told me those words on a call today, a few days after my dad had passed. Just wanted to jot it down so I won't forget it.

Ode to Torment
You make my heart ache so.
I can no longer sleep at night.
It hurts to breathe,
Yet I can never close my eyes.
I see no light.
Tears unending,
Pain deserving.
May we start over in another life,
For now, this is goodnight.
Sleep well, my knight.
