MR Jun 2018
You left me without words to express
My face said it all
No tears came out that day
but certainly there was heart ache

After you broke me again... and again
You asked my remaining pieces
If i could stay
And even though i thought about it twice
I knew you were more pain than love
And i left -
MR Jun 2018
i am currently living balanced
Not too much of this or that
Just the right amount

Just like a diet ...
Changing the variety and quality
But instead of food, of people
The people i deserve-  
And took out the trash
That no longer serves
MR May 2018
I stopped being a child so young
I want to go back to when I was born
Change some things I have done
So my mind is in peace with my soul

17 now just a kid
I do regret some things I did
Wished I could go back to my earlier stage of life
So I wouldn't have to deal with all of this at the same time

Growing up has been difficult for me
I'm not one of those rich kids
Who get what the want when they want
Well, that has never been the case for me

I have learned to work hard
Beat myself until I get what I want
Pay my bills, be mature
Enough to be on the streets for so long

Freedom is synonym for responsabilities
I learned that the hard way
When life slapped my cheeks
And told me I was a mess

Get up said life, you are not a kid anymore
I'm beating you like this
For you to be strong

Bad things will come, good things will too
Just remember when you are on the top
Everything you had to go through

Adversity makes you strong
And the challenges that come your way
You must beat them when they come
So they know you are stronger than them
MR Jul 2018
I found comfort in my words
Poetry always had my back
Just like music helps people
My words marked my life
MR Jun 2018
And everyday I tried different ways
To escape my reality
Some where good, others not so much
But what I ******* understand
Is that no matter what i did
Or where I go
I would end  in the same place i was all along
MR May 2018
I understood the problem was not me
I gave you everything I could give
But Huney you don't vibrate on the same level as me
I am in a higher frequency, a frequency you don't understand
I speak a language​ you'll never get
I speak true love
And when things are great, you are afraid
Because you'll lose your hobby
Of  writing how your exes failed
MR May 2018
In life, there are two types of people givers and takers
And all my life
I've only known takers
this is the first time
I find someone like me
One who is always ready to give
Without expecting anything in return
And it feels surreal
Because it's rare
To find people like us
MR Sep 2018
I miss those years dad
When i was young
And i came running
When you got home

I miss those years mom
When we talked for hours
When i couldnt find my north

I miss those years Tom
When you were a little one
Not an old dog

I miss those years
I dont want to grow up
It feels like every year
A piece of me is gone
MR Jun 2018
I'm a kid, but not a kid
Cause kids don't go out
Like i do
And kids don't sleep
In stranger's houses
Like i do
And certainly
Kids don't have ***
Like i do
But also i remember
Kids don't have the responsabilities
That i do
And kids dont pay bills
like i do
And i want to go back
And be just a kid
but i cant
i've been living like this
for  a long while
MR Jun 2018
Cause i am a "turn the lights off
put some music and light up  candles"

And you are a " get your clothes off and lets have *** "

No wonder we were never
We were never
On the same page
MR May 2018
Words unspoken
Now know the truth
How you lied to my face
With every "I love you"
When I thought we made love
But it was just ***
It was lust, not passion
And you know the rest
MR May 2018
I'll start treating people the way they deserve
A little of their own medicine
So they see how it tastes
MR May 2018
My dad  used to tell me
Life is like a train, and there are stations everywhere
People come and go
Each one has a role
Some to teach you a lesson, others to help you grow
But the train will never be empty
So don't cry my love
MR Jun 2018
I've been touching myself
To feel something
And i've been smoking
And i've been drinking
And i've been thinking
That i've been kissing
Strangers when i dont mean it
I've been partying
And overthinking
I've been sleeping
And i've been dreaming
Maybe if i do this i'll feel a thing
I've been coughing
Cause i can't breathe
And i've been drowning
With little cups
Filled with alcohol
That taste like water
Cause i am numb
And cant feel a thing
MR May 2018
The moon is my loyal company
She has been looking at me
Pass midnight she tells me ..." Why don't you sleep?"
I tell her you are all I have now, to deal with all this pain
Could you please hold me forever, and never go away
She tells me everything is temporary, even the pain I feel
Tomorrow is another day and the sun will shine bright for me
I tell her I want my life back, how did this happened to me ?
She shouts "love, this had to happen to make you the person you need to be"
I ask her why can't we go back, when my family was one again?
She kisses me and tells me: "come lay next to me"
See, life can be rough even for little girls like you
But know my darling that in dark times, I'll keep my light up for you
MR Jul 2018
Some may block you
And choose not to feel you
Others honor the pain
We all have been shot in the chest
But for some the bullet ricochet
MR Jul 2018
Funny how you said
"You'll love me forever"
And suddenly
You left
MR Jan 2019
can a heart have the capacity of loving two bodies at the same time ?
it is fighting the laws of physics
cause  i have known all my life
that two bodies can´t occupy the same place, at the same time
MR May 2018
Me dejaste con el cigarro en la mano
Y te desapareciste con el humo
Luego dejaste un vacío
Que nada podía llenar
Me dejaste sin ninguna razón
Quizás fue el hecho que te gustaba otra, y no podías tenernos a las dos
Quién sabe
Sólo se que anoche me escribiste__
En una hora no muy conveniente
Y me dijiste
"Cómo has estado"?
Y pienso yo
Con que descaro
Me escribes algo así
Yo fui peor que te respondí
Cuando se que no te mereces una respuesta
Y lo que más me cuesta  
Es saber que todo el mal que me hiciste
Lo vas a repetir
My first poem in Spanish, my native language
MR May 2018
What an ability we have
When people ask us
"How are you"
We say "I'm fine"
When everything is wrong
And you feel you are drowning
But you still show the world you are okay
Because it's an automatic response
Since people  ask that line for Courtesy
Not because they really care
MR May 2018
And I want to be in solitude
For I want to find myself
No, I'm not going to be lonely
Those words are not the same
I need inner peace
The one I had before you came
I need time to think of my mistakes
MR Jul 2018
If only you knew how much i hate Sundays
Since families get together
and have a good time
Some even go to church
And have a meal in the house

For me that's not the case
Mother goes to church with grandma
While Dad gets in his car
They leave, and never ask
If I'm alright

So i stay home alone
And watch the clock from time to time
While tears run down my face--
I count the hours for this to end
And then i think baby
Its just a day
MR Jun 2018
to be a poet
takes a lot
takes a soul
who has been through hell
or more
poetry comes from the darkest places
From a deep hole, nobody wants to enter
It comes
From fears, and frustration
From all that sadness, and depression
From a river of tears we cry at night
Holding our pillow, so we dont make a sound
And you hold it close, cause you want someone there
But nobody cares
There is no one there

All those feelings
Write them down
Your mouth is shut
But your words come to life
MR May 2018
How far would you go?                                                              ­                            
If you had a family but no job
Three mouths to feed and no money at all                                    

Banks calling but they need to hold on
Huge debts that you need to confront                      
Nobody said life would be so rough
For an honest man who has never done wrong

"Better times will come"
You gave me your word
Trying not to let me down
And showing some self-control

"I'm waiting for my pension my dear love
I hope it comes in time
Cause I'm giving up"
my dad's response:
beautiful description about how i honestly feel.
desperate, but in control
making a serious effort not to give up
dreaming to have a better future
for all of us.  ~LR
MR May 2018
You don't like looking at screens
You like talking face to face
At least something real
In this world full of ****

— The End —
