I told you I was leaving
My life was in your hands
And I thought "Why not give him a second chance"
So I gave it to you with caution
And you promised me wonders
Beauty of things to come,
Behind your eyes
The constant lies
I still believed you could change
But over time
I realized
The only things that do change
Are the seasons
And I had spent too many of them
Caught in your unseen web.

To Angel from school
Never knew you
Never even said hi
I wasnt even there
When you said your last goodbye
I never got to see your face
Or hear you speak a word
But heard of you from a friend
Of your life and who you were
Another smile
Another day
Another tear
You shed away
I was never there
But other people were
Gone but not forgotten
We all send up a prayer
Maybe it was the mental state
Maybe it was the diversity
I wonder what went through your head
In those final moments
When you decided
You were better off dead
On Friday last week, a person from my school (Fist name, Angel) committed suicide. Although I never knew them personally, I am saddened because nobody should ever do that. Whatever he thought in those last moments, whatever went through his mind, just know that none of whatever it was was worth it. If you need help please talk to someone, anyone. Your life is worth living and I would know. I used to be in a bad place in life where all I thought about is wanting to die, if i got out of it then anyone can. Prayers to Angel.

My dreams predict
My future,
And I don't lie
Or at least that's what they told me
To be honest
I'm not sure what they mean sometimes...
I see emptiness in my future,
Or a galaxy of wonders,
Or just space where I will spend my days,

I might not understand my dreams,
But at least they show me
Where I left my car keys last night...

And I don't lie.
Bored... I'm so fricken bored. But have a fun friday geesh!

Inspiration for the day
Maude Laurent Aug 27
More often then not
There is a voice in your head
Telling you to give up...

Don't listen to it
I cannot say everyday will be perfect, but not every day is horrible.

Soldier of the past
Maude Laurent Aug 23
I never thought you'd leave me
Never wanted to watch you go
But I knew it would happen gradually
And now I finally know
That those memories of you and I
We're never meant to be
You were in my life for a reason
On the path to my true destiny
Sometimes I miss a soldier, forever lost in her eyes, forever gone to me...
Maude Laurent Jun 25
I watched you on the edge
Cried when you fell
I caught you with my lips
Before you went to hell
I tasted your eternal love
And then I wanted more
But now all of you is gone
And the rest is on the floor
Yes I did get inspired by a fricken drop of ice cream doing exactly that, but I did drop my cone so I'm happy :)

Die Alone
Maude Laurent May 17
Shadows that watch you sleep
Drifting silent
And they creep
Along the lonely alley

Not a penny to your name
Not change to spare
You walk along
The sidewalk there

You know no man
Care not to ask
Why would they
Hurt you like this

Setting out for
A revenge so hatred
A thought in your brain
A conscious slain

For all vengeance costs
For a life you've lost,

You cannot go back home,

And a real man dies alone
Inspired by Zack Hemsey's "Vengeance"

Days that pass
Maude Laurent May 10
Taking chances
Slow dances,
Midnight kisses
Wished wishes,
Birds cheeping
Still sleeping,
Waking up
Morning, love
I'm a corona girl, in a corona world, it so stupid, i hate all of it.

Shutter Sound
Maude Laurent Mar 11
The moon
Tangled
In the tree's
And they danced
I watched
Their limbs
Intertwine
And I captured
That moment
"Snap"
My camera
The craters are there
"Snap"
The vines point
Straight to
The faint light
Small rotating orb
"Snap"
Like a twig
"Snap"
They all fall
Their weight on me
And the moon is gone
A fleeting beauty
Such of only
Existed in my imagination
My words
"It was never real"
And my heart breaks
This is a metaphorical poem referring to a beautiful love that you thought was real only to find out that reality is harsher than we want it to be.

I never said I wanted you
The words warned me of your kind
But I never cared to listen

Maybe I should have.

Loss for Music
Maude Laurent Feb 20
These black and white
Piano keys
They never understood me,
At least if they did...
They don't anymore.
I stood there,
Pounding
While their response answered
"Turmoil"
And their notes sung a dark sound
Of furious despair
As I wept,
Fallen flat on the floor,
For the one I loved.
This one hits closer to home with the despair and sadness when you lose a loved one, specifically for piano players. I do play some piano, but I'm not that good at it.

Held me
Maude Laurent Feb 10
The last time I saw you
I met you in sorrow
We laughed and we talked
Like there was no tomorrow

Tomorrow has come
I'm stuck in the rain
Between all your love
I still feel the pain

My eyes grew
A funeral black
When I thought you had my back
And I was wrong

Does it matter anymore
The tears I've wept
The nights that I
Haven't slept?

The hypochondriac insomniac
Who lives in turmoil.
I used to have a friend, now I don't. Never turn on your friends.

Confined Words
I don't want to let go,
I don't want to lose you,
I care for you still
Now I can't feel

My emotions are wild,
I wake up in tears
As well as drown in them,
Forgetting how to swim

I would let go,
But then I'd fall
And end up being
More broken than I already am...
To the ex friends we care about, please come back

Corruption
Why do you look at the ground
Eyes down,
As if you were ashamed
Of all you stand for?

Why do you mumble quietly
Afraid to speak
What you actually think
For fear of being wrong?

When did you get this feeling of
Doubt
Of how talented you are
And how skilled you've become?

It started when you
Walked through those doors,
Were told to sit still
And to only speak when spoken to

Welcome to School.
This is true for most people, and I'm trying to keep my head up everyday and not be ashamed of who I truly am.

The Story of a Writer
Maude Laurent Jan 28
Once upon a time I would write about you,

As if I could keep you on a piece of paper.

Forever trapped within these pages

I thought I had you to be by my side.

I held you in a book,

To preserve your every binding
I watched you closely,

I kept writing your story inside of the chapters we had created.

Was it not enough for you?

When had the walls become so stained with the ink that flowed from my pen?

Smooth like blood and yet you never told me, I had to drown in it to realize I had let you down.

My hands slipped,
and the book fell far from my reach.
Its last written page red tears on blood that my hand had bleed upon.

Within my sight I saw another writer, who grabbed you from where you had fallen, and left with haste.
I tried to stop them but it was too late,
the book would forever be lost to my eyes.  
I had no choice left but to cling on to your lifeless pages that I had ripped from your heart to give me solace.
Where was the comfort then?

From every heartfelt word I had written,

Every sleepless night,
Where was the humanity?!

At last my soaked eyes lay upon a blurry sentence of truth. My heart would never accept them though.
Someday, I vowed,
You would return to realization that I had never hurt you.
All of those voices you heard were lies.

Eventually you'll see, that I will write you again,

New pages and new adventures.

Forever a worn soldier of time and memories...
To friends who abandon us...

Stay here
Maude Laurent Jan 17
Stuck in reverse
Caught in a verse
Poetry
Prose?
I don't know anymore

But the letters remain
They all keep me sane
From the blood in my brain
To my poisonous veins

They scream in my head
Things I have read
Things that I said
From which I have fled

The empty kills quicker
My blood becomes thicker
I numb my body
But my heart still hurts

Holding on to life
The staining ink
Remains my core

I never want the letters to go away

Because then I'll be alone
I never run out of words to write, mostly

To a friend
It's good to see you smile
You haven't in a while,
To hear your laughter again
And see your happy grin

My heart restores,
I am assured once more
This is for a friend of mine

When we grow up
Maude Laurent Dec 2019
When we grow up
And the sunlight fades
A grey shadow clouds over you
And you you cannot run,
And you cannot cry

The child like innocence
Taken from your hope
Your smile disappears
And you find a world of hate
And a world of responsibility

The weight on your shoulders
Drags you to the ground
Every second your breath expands
Time moves in spite of it
And our bones fade

Time, never a memory,
Only a moment
To eternity
It's my birthday, some things never change

Controlling
Maude Laurent Dec 2019
You hold me in you warm embrace
But I cant focus
I say I just need some space
But you dont listen

All I want is a shoulder
A room to talk
A meadow or wood
Where I can walk

I need to vent
My brain is bent
This heart that you stole
Is only begging for a little control

Aware
Maude Laurent Dec 2019

As clear as day

And my glass continues to break

Secret
Maude Laurent Dec 2019
I am the sound words
Passing among the gossip lips
Vile hate on their tongue,
And bitter tasting to the beholders ear.

You carry me on
Far across the town
Like a wildfire
You are the dry, dark-gold grass.

I am the most powerful weapon
In destroying a life,
Naive ears fear me not,
For I am not their own property

I am yours.
I hate people who gossip...This happened to my friend a few weeks ago.

Maude Laurent Nov 2019
I see the passion in the words
They fight for life,
And breath,
And their emotion can overflow in me,
Their inspiration can overtake a soul.
Watching the storm waters
Rising on the ground,
Raindrops falling dance,
And remind me that all storms will pass,
Just like in life.

There is calm after the storm as well.
Have a fun Friday, I hope this was inspiring.

Because I am.
Maude Laurent Nov 2019
We are followers of the world,
We go where the world does,
We copy what the world says,

For once, I realize,
I am my own self,
And I have my own thoughts,
And I will never be the same as the world.

But that's what makes me human,
Emotions,
Thoughts,
My creativity.

I am the only thing that can stop them
From making me lose these things.

So what if I am the rebel?

They cannot withstand my passion,

I will change the world,

Because it is who I am.
Just a powerful thought for such a young mind...

The Sleeper-Rip Van Winkle
Maude Laurent Nov 2019
A lively fellow
A helpful sort
Found hunting and fishing
To be a good sport
One day he resolved
To go to the wood
To shoot a fowl
The idea sounded good
He saw a man a-walking
And so he went on talking
And helped the man carry a keg
Of beer or spirits or something,
Came to a strange valley
Found bowling pins
Not a bowling alley
Some weird men that were a-bowling,
Now while this was about
He came and took a draught
Of the keg and he found out
He felt he ought to sleep.
He woke up by a tree
His hunting gun, rusty,
His dog nowhere to be seen
And thought of those things
That happened before he slept
He swept his feet away to find
The place that he had left,
Strange confusion filled his face
For couldn't find the place
Where he was sure it had been
So he left again,
He went to his hometown
Changed in many ways
The people, tavern, and his house
Had all suddenly changed
He inquired of some people
About his missing friends
And to our surprise
This Rip Van Winkle guy
Had slept through the American Revolution!
We read Rip Van Winkle in English class today, I thought it would make a hilarious fun friday poem. Your Welcome ;p

Reflect
Maude Laurent Nov 2019
It is quite easy
To look back on life
And believe you went wrong.

It is harder
To look at where you are now
And appreciate all you've done
To get here.
Just a thought.

Or dying on the sidelines...

Happy Friday

Bugie adorabili
Maude Laurent Oct 2019
How can this be real
Anything i touch
Everything I feel?
And yet I see you
A memory
And a puzzle
But nothing I can ever put together,
Nothing I can keep safe.
You are like the fog on a wispy morning
A hand I pass through you
And you fade from my fingertips.
Why are you torturing me
When you are gone
Why does your words
Still haunt what I hear?

Perché mi hai mentito

E hai detto che lo era

Distress of a Poet

When did words start to fade in your mind

Now you're stuck at a loss for words

And stuck on a blank page.

I love you rainbow friends
I have a lot of Trans and Gay friends, etc. and when I hear people talking about them in a negative way in that aspect... I want to beat the *^% out of the bully's. People should be able to be who they want to be without people saying it's wrong.

If you had a table,

You were the soul to my smile
Et maintenant tu n'es pas

A page, or a chapter
Mais ensuite tu m'as déchiré

I could have loved you
Mais tu me fait mal...


Tu n'es pas mon Roméo
And now you are nothing, Quand une fois tu étais mon tout...

Btw, the part that is different is in French for those of you who don't know, I used google translate if you would like to read what it means.
