My Cut Sew Pattern
My own family mocks my creations
With my patience wearing thin
I cut the delicate fabric
And wait to sew it back up again
And I repeat these actions
It's an endless battle
Between myself and my family
*Can they see the thread?
Can they see the patterns I've created?
boop I'm tired...

thread of life
hand sewing everything with thread tied in knots
putting patterns in places they don't belong
binding them together in desperation
but it seems the thread of life was unable
to keep my patchwork from tearing apart at the seams
in a club at school we have to creatively express ourselves by writing a poem, drawing, singing, or acting out an emotion. I wanted this to be for sadness but I'd need to add more and I felt it was good like this. maybe this could be stressed out cuz they're trying so hard to put their life back together but nothing seems to work...

Billy Joel the Piano Man
oh ****
I saw the piano man
singing his songs
to the uptown girl
by the fire he didn't start
for the longest time
you believed
he was the entertainer
you may be right
but its all in a matter of trust
I SAW BILLY JOEL TODAY!
idk poem with titles of his songs

painted closets
paintbrush flows,  patterns unfold
occupied hours, the doors closed
hidden in plain sight
both a comfort and a weekness until
little black tablets make a colored world
turn down transparency so you can be seen

on the screen colors
are arranged so
rainbow connections
bring you closer to who you truly are
so embrace your new found colors
in this colorless existence

make a new layer
draw another line
pixel by pixel it all comes into place
blurring into existence
pixie wings and pictorial symphonies
swing open closets
I'm coming out
aaah so I haven't been on in a year! so much has happened! so many new poems to make! this one I've been working on for a few days. Imma keep coming back to it and fixing it up because I really like this one

Stalker Eyes
your efforts to stop him are in vain
whatever you do he never refrains
from watching you from a distance
showing no resistance
to stop having his watchful eyes
follow you through the world of lies
everywhere you go
will he ever understand the word no?
so there's a stalker at my school...its really annoying cuz I told him I don't like him and to leave me alone yet he still follows me and if I stop walking, slow down, or go to a classroom to get something he'll stop too and stand there watching me...its creepy...

Dream World
Can I keep on dreaming
Up a new life
One without strife
Where I’m alright
If I have to live here
I will block the world out
Living in my dream world

In this world
I’m a free deer
I tend to spend more
Of my time here
Living here in peace
There is so much space here
I am made of stars

Can I keep on dreaming
Up a new life
One without strife
Where I’m alright
If I have to live here
I will block the world out
Living in my dream world

In here
I don’t have to deal with
My depression
No acceptance
Ignorant
To the world around

Can I keep on dreaming
Up a new life
One without strife
Where I’m alright
If I have to live here
I will block the world out
Living in my dream world
i like to daydream about being a deer. no troubles no worries. when im not at school i spend my time in this world. it helps calm me down and make me happy

Porcelain Doll
"Stay away from others
You're too fragile
They'll break you apart"
But that's something you've done from the start
"Wear ballroom attire, and go on display
Everyone will see
Your beauty right away"
I'm not a toy you can collect
I'm not something you can play with,
Something you can dress
Mom leave me alone
*I'm not your porcelain doll

You're Not the Only One
...
      mother I've been wanting to die,
I've tried.
       i cant live with the fact that inside
my mind
       there's no brightness left to shine.
I'm fine?
       I lie because you've never seemed to care,
that's fair
       you've dealt with more than I've had.
you're sad
        I get it, but I still feel this way.
okay?
idk my mom likes to yell at me saying that she's had to deal with more than I've had and that I shouldn't be feeling stressed out or depressed when she has it worse. its not my fault that I feel this way and she should know since she's studying psychology

Jejune's Makeover (Draft)
they tell us from a young age
to be ourselves
yet we're expected
to be like everyone else

I made my own
snowflake world
special to me
yet others found strange

they stalked their celebrity crush
and listened to rap
while obsessing over shoes
expecting others to do the same
why do I get looks
for being in my own world?

bzzrtt
-here comes loud obnoxious infomercial voice-
stop diverting
hide yourself
conceal away your desires

you are flawed
we can help
you're just one payment away
from sheep like happiness
bzzzrtt

falling under their spells
i was doomed from the start
i'm like every other teenage girl
dealing with this lipstick chaos
now I am jejune
idk this is like a ****** song I'm working on. there's this person who makes songs using vocaloids and she uses themes to tell her story. some themes she's used have been, colors, trains, teeth, color bars/tv, and radios. I love these songs and I wanna make songs like her! so the theme is supposed to be makeup...idk...I'm working on it...I'll be revising it. I already drew the character for the story and eventually when I get a vocaloid ill put it on youtube!

what can i do?
what can I do
to make you stop?
for you to not yell at me...
I'm trying all that I can
and I know I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed
but that doesn't mean you have to degrade me
you want me to treat you like a god
yet you're actually just a ****
if my existence is bothering you
would it be best if I was gone?
would that work?
bluh my bro is a ****

Oh Look a New Hairstyle!
I usually go by unnoticed
Especially when I'm crying
Or having a mental breakdown
Yet I dye and cut my hair
And that's when I get a wave of people noticing
Like thats the only thing there
*Do I seriously have to change how I look
For people to acknowledge my existence?

Flower
A withering flower isolated from the others
In this crumbling vase it stands alone
Oblivious to it no one bothers
Always forgotten it should have known
Deceiving roses catch their eyes
Claiming them as their own
Thrown in the garbage the flower will lie
What they're after is what is shown

locked away in your closet

Can't You Let Me Leave?
Why do you all want me to stay?
I'm just a nuisance can't you see
Leave me alone so I may
Take these pills and be in eternal sleep
My existence never helped anyone
My absence will be the key
Everything will be better after I'm done
So don't lie and say you'll miss me
idk I've noticed peeps will say they'll miss you if you try to **** yourself even peeps who thought you were annoying and wanted you to shut up or go away...

Another Life Poem Yay
In life we hope
That there will be light
Along the way
As we float in space
We hope our hearts won't be filled with void or rage
We don't want to be alone with just our minds
We wish to be with others
Not related by blood
No matter whether or not you're alone
We're all doomed to die
So we take our last breath
One last *time

well ****
family gatherings aren't that fun
got yelled at right when I got to the house
talking bout little things I've done
criticizing me

when I want to be alone
and make some drawings
they complain
I'm not spending time with my family

yet everything's fine and dandy
when we all hangout in the room
listening to old songs
while they all get drunk
I hate holidays
I stopped feeling joy when they come around
same with other things I used to love
I'm so tired

idk how to title things...

List Part 1
Welcome to this friendly desert community
Take in the fresh hazelnut smell
As you get lost in this mystifyingly beautiful town
Do you dare go to the library to learn about our history
Written by lizards and cuttlefish?
Listen to the larks as they scream
Lurking in the trees
Don't be fooled by Robert
Who sends out anglican pheromones
Put the halters on top of deers
To stop their egalitarian anarchist ways
The hardware's lasers signal the feral dogs
To howl into the vacuum of nothingness
so in welcome to nightvale (a podcast about a desert town where strange stuff happens) there was a list that everyone had to remember. i wanted to write a poem containing the words from the list and put them in the order they were said. its kind of hard since they're random...i decided to split the list up into different poems so it'll be easier for me. the first part of the list i used was:
Hazelnut, Mystify, Cuttlefish, Lark, Lurk, Robert, Anglican, Pheromone, Halter, Top, Marmalade, Hardware, Laser

The Darkness
The light always fades
It never seems to stay
The dark is drawing near
Leaving people in fear
They quiver and shake in its presence
Soon enough they'll befriend it
Try and try with all their might
But in the end, they'll never win this fight
There's no point in running away
From the darkness that's here to stay

speech poem
why is it important for authors to recount past traumas in their work?
what do you do
when all your bad memories seem to lurk
in your mind, resurfacing,
causing you to relive the past that only seems to give
you negativity, no tranquility?

dont let your traumas fester
manifest into some kind of monster
one that you cant tame yourself
we had to write a speech about why its important for authors to write about traumas so i made a lil poem for it!
no one can see me
I hide myself can't you see?
cuz they dont care
how is that fair?
they have others
why would they bother
to be with someone like this
i bet they wouldnt miss
me when im gone
dont tell me im wrong

I can't seem to control
all my emotions and it seems to play a role
in why no one seems to stay
that and I may
not know how to hold a conversation
its quite hard to make friends when
I'm socially awkward

so instead of trying
I'll just be here hiding
watching everyone else
have a life while I'm by myself
its great when you want to make new friends but you know no ones gonna like you or care bout you so you don't even bother trying. and then when you do try you end up annoying them cuz you're so used to talking to like two people and you start acting like how you normally would around the new person and they don't like it.

Insomnia
I go to school and do my work
in the shadows they will lurk
making sure I'm on time
and never stepping out of line
at home I'll cry, and when the clock strikes 3
there with tear soaked pillows I will sleep
whatever I do I am always late
I guess its just an insomniac trait
I have a lot of trouble sleeping at night and I usually fall asleep at 3am
I have to wake up at 6 so I can be on time but I never do
its been getting so bad that I couldn't do my hw cuz my eyes hurt so much
mom let me stay home cuz she knows its better to just be absent than to go with missing hw

Me At Myself
do you ever feel like
your friends never cared about you?
like your entire existence never affected them?
hell they probs would've done better without you...
you've annoyed them ever since you met them
and now here you are
still bothering them...
you're probably the cause of their problems
or making their problems worse for them
and you know it
you hurt them so many times
and only came back to you
because you were weak
and couldn't go on without them in your life
you want them all for yourself
because you don't know how to speak
to other people and make friends...
how much longer
til you've broken beyond repair?
a year, a month, or just a few hours?
when will you finally be consumed with despair?
or have you already died inside
and are too scared you'll mess up
and have to explain to everyone that you don't have the will to live...
lelel tired
friendos probs hate me
like deep down they do
I'm so annoying cuz all I do is complain about how I wanna die
lol

Oh Looky Its a Poem?
there's too many of them
why do I have to be here
there's no space for me to move
they're all watching me
look away please
itd be weird if I started biting my pen
in front of them
I need to do something
I need to calm down
what can I do?
when I get anxious I need to do something. like move around, bite my pen, flap my hands idk. it helps calm me down. I can't really do that at school especially when I have a stalker in the class...sometimes I'll find myself biting my pen or just drumming my hands on the table. sometimes that isn't enough sometimes it is.

something had changed
and so did the world around me
I realized it was every time I changed as a person

      They're leaving and I don't want to be alone forever

       But I can't go on
      When I feel like it's all over

you pretended to be a real musician
following the papers given to you
pressing keys you had learned back then
but once you were forced on stage you knew
that for this you weren't ready
the crowd stares at you
like you're something they need to study
you hear the once steady beat
turn into a nightmarish feat
the pounding of heart drums
echo in the air
soon the crowd turn to none
and you're left with an instrument that was never there

these wires take me away??
im still upset about this
my friend and i got in a fight
and she told me to **** myself and that she hated me
and i tried to but couldnt
and i told my other friend and she didnt care cuz the girl who told me to **** myself was crying
and now i cant get over it
im worried no one cares
that everyone wants me dead
i probably should have died that day

i had to have her approval for everything
and i still act like this
i need to stop
i need to leave her

ya fool
poor porcupine*
you never let people get too close
those who do
regret finding you
but youve let one in
got too close too quick
they got stuck on your quills
they want to stay but also leave
always talking to others
never you
yet theyre there
always reassuring you that theyll stay
that youre the best home
but you know better
than to trust a *rat
my best friend (imma call her porcupine) is dating this girl. she always takes forever to open up to people. it took me about two years for her to be comfortable with me and same for her other friends. she opened up to this girl in 3 months and they started dating. now her girlfriend prefers to talk to and play with other people rather than porcupine. her girlfriend makes porcupine feel bad for bringing that up and now shes even more depressed. like dude get to know the person first. her gf is poly meaning she wants to date multiple people and porcupine clearly has a problem with this. they wouldve broken up but her gf is the only thing making her happy yet is also hurting her
