You watch helpless
as a burn
and demand to know
who did it
but how can I say

It was you
who lit the match
i cant

not poetry
Jaxey Nov 2019
i've learned the hard way
that life will never be
as beautiful as poetry
and that we will never be
as perfect as we sound
when squished between
similes and metaphors
so while we don't fit together
quite as well as puzzle pieces
and you sometimes
might not complete me
as well as a cup of coffee
my hand still feels
quite nice in yours

and i don't need a poem to say that
sometimes things aren't poetic

beautiful things
Jaxey Nov 2019
you always know
when to point out
the beautiful things
you just always seem
to forget about yourself

I was tired of tranquilizing the bomb
How stupid was I
to forget
the explosion
All I wanted was a break

Now I know
How betrayal feels
To be burned
By your very source of light
did he ever get back up?

I don't know how to draw
But I need an excuse
To look at you just a little bit

half empty
Jaxey Oct 2019
to you
i might have been
a tall glass of water
but to you
i was also
half empty
just find the cons of me why don't you

Letting go

the autumn trees make it look way too ******* easy

Jaxey Oct 2019
I'm sorry
I only assumed
You were on the left
Of the parenthesis
which side are you on?
Oct 2019 · 428
Jaxey Oct 2019
Loving you
Is like drowning
Reaching for the brim
Waiting for you to help me
Instead of learning how to swim
Why did you let me drown

I cuff our wrists together
and tell myself
you're deciding to stay

It's not like he's never there
To shoot an arrow between us
It's just that you always seem
To beat him to the punch
why are you so scared of chances?

If love is a two way street
I'm the person on the sidewalk
the third wheel

He stole all my heels
because he doesn't like it
when he can't look down on me
I stole them back

Your harmful words
Pass through me as I bath in
My own compliments

my autumn leaf
Jaxey Sep 2019
it's autumn
the trees are letting go
of year long relationships
so why the ****
can't i
why can't i just ******* let you go already

what hurts the most
Jaxey Sep 2019
and I think the part
that gives me the most pain
is the fact that i will always love you
and you will never feel the same
Oh well
Sep 2019 · 202
Jaxey Sep 2019
That's the difference
between myself and autumn
I can't let you go
the trees make it look so easy

love hacks
Jaxey Sep 2019
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?
Sep 2019 · 153
Jaxey Sep 2019
Telling me you love me
When you really don't

Is like telling a rose
You're going to water it
Just to rip it from the ground
humans are like flowers

a-lone-ly (reverse poem)
Jaxey Sep 2019

but no longer
I am
and yet I'm not
the sad in me is now
my hope is slowly
diminishing into nothing
my new beginning
was suppose to be taking over
my sadness
no longer
I am
but no longer

I found a home inside myself

one more lie
Jaxey Sep 2019
i will use my last breath
to tell myself
you loved me
just let me die a good man

"I love you"
You say
As you lift up my chin
But you're eyes shine with metaphors
And your hand feels like sin
Stop lying to me

Plucking the sun from the sky
Is not a sunset

Pulling a leaf from a tree
Is not autumn

Pushing me off a cliff
Doesn't mean I'm falling for you

And kissing me
Doesn't mean I love you
You can't force it

You told me a wasn't you cup of tea
So I tried adding some sugar and cream
But by the time I was to your liking

I had gotten cold

Final destination
Jaxey Sep 2019
Loving you
Is like a moving train
I could jump off
But it would be painful
And I just
I don't wanna get off
Aug 2019 · 337
Jaxey Aug 2019
I love you

I know you don't love me back

And that's okay

But I love you

And I just wanted you to know that

"I love you"
Only fell from your lips
When you were intoxicated
So I slipped a bit of *****
In your drink every night
Pretending it was me
You were drunk on
Please love me
Aug 2019 · 395
Jaxey Aug 2019
I wish you would just let me
Wash away the pain
But right now you're a thunderstorm
That's complaining about the rain
Just let me help you
Aug 2019 · 346
Jaxey Aug 2019
I'm sorry I stole your sweatshirt
I was aiming for your heart
This was the closest I could get
Without completely falling apart
I'm sorry

I've tried to write
So many poems about you
But you're beauty is copyrighted
And I don't believe
In plagiarism

You held the paper
between you lips
and inhaled

I've never
Been so jealous
Of a cigarette
It should have been me

Jaxey Aug 2019
I set on fire quite a lot
But you're always there to put me out
We compliment each other
In every way
Now if only you would let a **** spark
Form between us
Without putting that out too

She kissed him
With question marks?
While he kissed her
With "quotations"
And together they became
a run on sentence...
It never ends.

Jaxey Aug 2019
I try to tiptoe across the pain
but you caught my tears hidden by the rain
you try to tell me everything will be okay
But all I hear is that I will always love you

And that you will never feel the same
why can't you just love me. why do you not love me. why cant you just let me love you and let yourself love me. i dont understand. i dont know if i ever will. why do you do this to me. do you want me to hurt? why am I not good enough? why can't you just love me. why cant anyone just ******* love me.

You called it our song
But I only got to sing with you
When I was forced between your legs
It was never mine

I feel like a star
so small from afar
yearning for someone to come closer
and see that I'm more
than just another speck in the sky
come closer please

space is my addiction
proximity is key
get a little closer
and i'll never
let you leave
don't leave, stay in this proximity with me

Black and white
Dark and bright
It's lonely
Without a shadow
In all this light
If only the sun had a shadow

You tell me
To follow
My heart
I ask you
Which piece
Lost and confused

I never expected you
To live up to your name
why did you have to crush me?

You tasted bitter
With a pinch of honey
And I wondered
If they had forgotten
The cream
Simplicity is nice

Do you have a band aid?
Jaxey May 2019
you words leave me with wounds
deeper than bargained for
and i seem to be out
of band aids

I always believed
That you had destroyed me
But then I realized
The only person
Who had the power
To destroy me
Was myself
Destruction of the brain
May 2019 · 315
I'm fine
Jaxey May 2019
You ask
If I'm okay
But not because
You really care
But because you're trying
To convince yourself
That you do

Small world

I showed you my art
expecting an "ew"
But then you rolled up your sleeve
and said "I draw too"
do you have unwanted art?
