The question
Mary-Elizabeth Oct 2016
I moved far away
To try and better myself
But what is the point?
I just realised wverything happens for a reason and I made these mistakes to learn from them

Child
Mary-Elizabeth May 2016
My choices
My life
I put them before you
Before your life!

You aren't here
I ended your life
Before it had even begun
I'm sorry

The only words I have
Sad
Regret

You're my child
You always will be
Even though you
Will never be born

I love you my child
I may be young but i made my choices. Some good, some bad. I love you my child! ❤

Maybe today or tomorrow

I am leaving, finding an escape

Acceptance
Mary-Elizabeth Apr 2016
I was never able to accept
The position was was in
At eighteen I am stupid
I left myself vulnerable.

In under 4 months
You were gone
The hardest decision I made
A choice, a life

The trust of my friends
broken
The secret out.
I was stupid.

I took a pill,
it was over,
But my pain
My regret

You will always be
on my mind
in my heart
on my conscience

You are a reminder
of my power
my choices
my mistakes.

I have to accept
You were me
I was you
A life never lived.
I have had a tough time recently. A lot changed for me I put myself in a difficult position and even though i regret my choice I believe it was the right one

Escape
Mary-Elizabeth Jun 2015
Find me a window,
Find me a door,
Find me a corner
To hide in

I need to escape
This unfortunate life
My house, a building
Not a home

My sister's are my rock
Parents.
Well what can I say?
ENEMIES

What is a family,
When there's no love?
It's emotional
It's my stability,

Well maybe not.

When can I escape?
Without any money
I can only hide
Hidings what I'm good at.
It's been a long day full of hurt and emotions, I just can't face. I really need to escape

trust
Mary-Elizabeth May 2015
Who can I really trust?
Well I thought it was you but
No

Just like her
you tell the my story
My secrets
My feelings

Manipulative
Two-faced
It's a shame you hold the title
Father


Twisting every single word
I spill my heart out
She knows
What I tell you in confidence

I'm unaware if it's
You or her that stirs
this hatred so much

Mother and father
Divorced but will always be
Partners when it comes the the
Spilling of My secrets
True and to the point!!

Nothing
Mary-Elizabeth May 2015
This tear stained pillow
Means nothing

The heartache and misery
Mean nothing

You build me up
You break me down

You tear our family apart

What is this?
A dream?

NO
This is the reality

I feel nothing inside
My head hurts
My heart breaks
I feel nothing anymore

assistance
Mary-Elizabeth Apr 2015
Any assistance for me,
The mild, meek, ugly me?
When will I be...
What I see...
In all those magazines.

A guy like you,
A girl like me...
Naa never going to be
I know what you want.

You want the "perfect" girl,
With the perfect smile.
A girl, skinny and tall
What am I?

All I see is rolls of fat
A short, ugly waste
Have your princess
The girl you want

Please just leave me be, in peace
Without assistance, you or us
You had your choice of me and her
The perfect or just me

Plain old boring me

life or death?
Mary-Elizabeth Mar 2015
Abused And
Misused
But always forgotten
It's only a question of death.

Searching, not knowing
For a dream
I don't know
There's nothing here for me

A life spent wanting
Spent waiting
For something never to be
Is there any point

Life is lame
It *****
It's not what we expect
That why

It's only a question of death

It may seem dark
But there may be
Light
It's never a question of death
life is hard but I'm used to it. Amongst the dark there's a glimmer of light. Just find it

advice in love
Mary-Elizabeth Jan 2015
If they miss you
They'll call.
If they want you
They'll say it.
If they care
They'll show it.
And if not
They're not worth your time.
Stay strong you can do it. Love is hard but when it works, it works!!
For my girl Emma!! You don't need a guy to be happy

2015
Mary-Elizabeth Jan 2015
What will this year bring?

For me: exams at school and dance
A professional show for the fourth year
And my seventh dance school show
A busy year already full

2 jobs; soon to be three
Revision for school
Dance practice
Private lessons

No time for me
One holiday
A week to get away
To relax;  be free

Learning to drive
In amongst the fun
The torture of life
Can stand still

For 2015
Is no random year
2015
*is my year
Thoughts to an already busy year

Untitled (see notes)
Mary-Elizabeth Jan 2015
A limp and lonely boy,
A lively loveable girl,
One bench,
One day.

A bench where strangers meet,
They glance,
They look,
They stare.

A simple stare,
But more than that,
A new beginning,
Of an old ending.

Would it be love,
Or friendship,
Or nothing,
Only days would tell.

As everyday they sat,
They stared, but neither said a thing,
This then changed one day,
When the girl was not there.

The boy just stared,
At the place she should be,
Waiting for her to arrive,
She never did.

Three weeks later,
She finally turns up,
He says "where have you been,
I was worried about you"

He sits closer,
She goes to back away,
He holds her,
Then noticing the bruises and cuts.

One cut still bleeding,
Had she run,
He looked,
He stared.

He stayed!
Kept this poem private for a long time as I couldn't find an ending I liked... finally finished it.

Flashback
Mary-Elizabeth Dec 2014
My old home,
My new home
One,
the same.

My building at birth
My building in later years
Leaving,  Returning
I'm reminded of much

My first few years
Are not forgotten
For many back then
Tell me now

I was only little
When we left
As a teen
I return

Flashbacks of past times
With our regulars
I remember much
I never knew about.

To me it's my   forgotten   *past
In the process of moving back to the pub my parents once owned.

stress
Mary-Elizabeth Dec 2014
Overworked and underpaid
To help the family survive
To please you
I just can't

Two jobs, school and dance
Little sleep and lacking comfort
So much to do to help
I struggle

No time for me to relax
Working,  revising,  practicing
For what?
A better future for all

I'm stressed out
And struggling
With life
With everything

Failing school
Failng my family
Failing at dancing
It's all falling apart

The stress I'm under
It's effecting me
You
All those I know

I can't keep it in
I will just burst
Leaving you all behind
          *GOODBYE

Run and hide
Mary-Elizabeth Dec 2014
Wanting to run
But with no where to hide
How to eacape this misery?
I can't stay

It's not a house
It's not a home
It's a hell
I'm in for eternity

I'm ill, Tired
Stressed
2 jobs, school and dance
With you are far too much

The rising pressure
I'm constantly under
The want to please you
It's killing me day by day

I can't stand the agony
Any longer
I'm out
Finished
Done

I will run from you
Hide in a safe place
Not that I have one,
Yet.

Run and hide
Hide and seek
I know that I will be found
You know where I feel safest

An unexpected place
I'm still to be found
I live in a public place
Known by many I do not know

Help me run
Help me hide
I just need to
Run and hide!
It's a dark piece partially (mainly) based on truths in my own life.

you
Mary-Elizabeth Nov 2014
you
I follow
In every direction
The rush of the wind
That breeze

A mountain
A river
A stream
I walk to find you

You are the rock
A pillar from the earth
The gift upon which I grow
You.

I believe in you.
For you are my reason for life.
I love you
Just a quick one. Try reading it backwards.  Let me know what you think of the poem :)

changes
Mary-Elizabeth Nov 2014
I thought this change
Was for the better
For me, myself and I.

A chance to meet new people
Be liked
Be helped

To find myself

Different from the past I thought
Never to be true
I overestimate what we can do.

This change though
Only months old
Was one too many
*BAD
6 months full of changes none so far have turned out the way they were planned!

A hard decision
Mary-Elizabeth Oct 2014
I'm done with the pain
I'm done with the hurt
In my muscles
Nerves
Bones

The inflicted pain
The stretching
Brings me no joy
I hate it

In 13 years
What have I got?
No better
Only worse

Injuries beyond belief
The pysio
For the pain endured
Every week!

Do I stay?
Do I go?
How do I decide
Loyalty of life itself?

I can't,  I really can't!
Been advised to give up dancing due to my injuries.  I cant do a lot anyway but I love my friends there :(

end of an era!
Mary-Elizabeth Jul 2014
5 years led to this
A party
A prom
A goodbye.

Not many shall I miss
Only few will stay with
Me in my heart
The memories we made!

Some people partied
Each one the same
I concentrate, being
The introvert I am.

The final day, Friday
A prom.  Our prom
We created.
We will go!

I won't miss
The loud ones
The rude ones

I will miss
The fun
The games
My friends

My close connection of
People I love.
Have bonded with
Will miss!

We won't meet for
Years to come
This last day
Will be for years

Good luck to you
My friends
My year.
My school
Leavers.  Laat day prom,  will miss my friends lots as we lead separate lives

belief
Mary-Elizabeth Jul 2014
I believed in you.  My
Friend, just like my sister.
You broke it. You broke...
Me

The belief that all
Things happen for a reason
Confuses me, it doesn't work
The way you want.
You make your destiny

I believe that the future
Holds a path of good.
And bad
A path that only we can change
We sculpt it how we
Want it.
Are our lives already known?
Are we just living out other people's plans? 
 Is there such a thing as destiny?
Do we create our own destiny?
Can we sculpt our lives away from the plans we're given?

How do you know
He loves you
How do you know
He cares

How do you know
He loves you
How do you know
That he really cares?

How do I know
It's meant to be
How do I know
That he wants me


What is love?

How will you know
When you find it
How do you know
It will last

Will it last?
Will it be?
Will it work?
Will we be us or
You and me

The various questions
That hide the truth
Of something so simple.
*Love

Pain (the essence of dance)
Mary-Elizabeth Jun 2014
Pain,
The stabbing feeling
That I experience
Day in day out.

Knowing that for
Three years
The issue has been
This the pain is unneeded

To stop the pain
These tablets, Painkillers
Cause more pain
Than they solve

The daily tears
The throbbing
Like a knife
Unexplainable
Unthinkable

A dance career
Wanted
No longer possible
Ended before begun

Mary-Elizabeth May 2014
I'd rather live a life
Full of 'Oh wells'
Than a life
Of 'What ifs'

In my life
I was taught
And I've finally managed
To follow my instincts

I know fake when
I see it
I know B.S when
I hear it

The most important thing
I've learned to this day
I can respect real when
*I feel it
Sorry about the abbreviations I thought it would be best not to use that word.

Willingness to be there for us
That's how life improves

When will you comprehend
I need you in my life
Be the person I need you do be
Be my Father

An unlikely prince
Sings to find a lovable Princes
Tragedy strikes
Loves caught between two worlds

I know that the prince
Will find his princess
Loosing one
He shall find another

A love of life
A love for music and
Nature alike.

Two marriages
Two new royals
Royal blood

Have you ever dreamed of your prince?
The man who'll save you from the pain.

When the clock strikes midnight
Run
Don't stay,
go.

If you loose a shoe

It's a hint for your prince
He needs it

Don't stay
Remember you riches
They turn to rags
He will find you

Always remember
If it's meant to be
It will be

Ripping my heart from the place it belongs,
Draining the blood from my body.
A knife, cuts
A knife, kills.

Please,
Don't do this
Not again!
