Chameleon
Nicole May 2020
Chameleon
That's what they call me
But I change so much, I forgot what colour I started with

Chameleon
That's what they call me
I can be anything that they want me to be, but I will be who I wanna be

Underneath it all
When the colours flow
Underneath it all
I'm a rainbow
Underneath it all
There's a place to go
Chameleon
Chameleon

I feel them watching
Yeah, I'll give them the show
They say I'm crazy
But they don't really know me

I hear them talking
But I'm deaf while I soar
The sky is falling
After rains, I explode

Underneath it all
When the colours flow
Underneath it all
I'm a rainbow
Underneath it all
There's a place to go
Chameleon

They wanna build me up
They wanna nip and tuck me
But who I am is enough
I know I'll always love me for me,

Underneath it all
When the colours flow
Underneath it all
I'm a rainbow
Underneath it all
There's a place to go
Chameleon

Sensual love
Nicole May 2020
You undressed me with your pulchritudinous eyes
A smirk entact on your chiseled face.

Your hands tangled in my hair
And our souls connected,
making everything else vanish for me
at that second.

A sheen of sweat covered my body
From your slow, sensual torture
Your lips exploring my body
as they nurture.

I writhe below you
making quite noises of satisfaction.
As we lay there,
Our eyes doing all the communication.

Your scents on my sheets
The moonlight on your gorgeous skin
As we lay there and worship each other
Making everything around us glint.

Your lips grazed my earlobe
making me scream,
I suddenly jolted out of it
realizing it was all just an another dream.
Just thought I should try writing something ******.

Colour me happy
Nicole May 2020
Blue and green we're the colors in between
All the things I've said, are all the things you've seen
White and grey we can still a stormy day
And all the things we fear we can't find the time to say.

Colour me terrified, colour me proud
Colour me anxious to say it out loud,
Colour me gratified, colour me fine
Colour me happy as long as you're mine.

Sand and slate oh you were worth the wait
All the lies I've lived have led me to your face.
Sea and sky, break all the rules or live a lie
Teach me all you know, my eyes are open wide.

Colour me terrified, colour me proud
Colour me anxious to say it out loud,
Colour me gratified, colour me fine
Colour me happy as long as you're mine.

The Boy with his light
Nicole Sep 2020
Alone and lost, appeared this saint,

With pretty gray eyes, darkness can’t taint.

He stole her from cold, from blustering storm,

Kind and gentle, he took her from harm.

Fearful of dark, he created her light,

A jar of gold, chasing demons of night.

Telling stories of love, he brought to her life,

A moment by his side: no pain, no strife.

He gifted her poems, a gesture on whim,

With every word read, she could see only him.

She counted the days until he returned home,

The boy with his light, the girl not alone.

Invisible to all, a shade wandering in dark,

He brought back her faith, with his pure kind heart.
Nicole Mar 23
A river runs red
From my knuckles into the sink.
As I stand there,
Hands dripping.
Washing the evidence of loving you,
Scrubbing the remembrance of the flesh.
Draining into pipes are memories of bodies together,
And mouths full of lies.

His face
Nicole Sep 2020
Light devoid, no silver-hued moon,

Shadows claim my soul too soon.

With silence strong, I’m left alone,

With aching bones and heart forlorn.

The cold seeps in, an evil embrace,

My only warmth: his face.

His face.

Beautiful mess
Nicole May 2020
"We're a mess"
She whispers
Lifting her head up
So that her eyes can meet mine
"An undeniable,
beautifully chaotic mess"
I correct her.

You and me
Nicole May 2020
Maybe it's the sunshine

Or the color of your eyes

Maybe it's the moonlight

Or the color of the sky

If i could freeze this moment

I would stay here every day

If i keep singing love songs

Will you promise me you'll stay

And oh,

You're the only one i see, and

There's nowhere else i rather be, and

We can't explain the way we feel

But i believe in you and me

Tell me all your secrets, baby

I'll tell you mine

We'll keep them between us

Til the end of times

Anything could happen

We don't have to know

Whatever we imagine

It's possible

And oh,

You're the only one i see, and

There's nowhere else i rather be, and

We can't explain the way we feel

But i believe in you and me

I found my voice
Nicole May 2020
Everyone was acting like as if they were right

But I did not buy it, no I did not buy it

I said I'm going back, 'til there's no one left,

Now I'm standing on my own

It's me against them all

And it never looked so beautiful

'Cause I found what I was looking for

Now I'm standing on my own

It's me against the world

And I never felt so wonderful

'Cause I found what I was searching for

I found my voice .
Never back down from a fight, and always stand strong!

Anorexia
Nicole Oct 2020
It speaks to me each morning,

The dawn of each new day,

Keeping me from eating,

My head is where it stays,

It strips me of my burdens,

Of hunger pangs, of pain,

It guides me to perfection,

It freely takes the reins,

It will be with me forever,

Of this I have no choice,

My friend, my foe, my conscience,

It's her, it's that voice.
Anorexia is an eating disorder
where there is a voice in your head
which keeps you from eating
to look slim and "perfect".

Remember
you are beautiful just the way you are!
Don't let anything or anyone make you feel otherwise.

The eyes of a lie
Nicole May 20
Your scarred face
Written on it, the name of disgrace
I shed pink tears
Because the ink from your touch smeared
The blank paper I used to be
Now I can see
Inside your eyes lies a storm
Inside your eyes cries behold
Me, another dream

To Join flowers and obscurity.

Those eyes
Nicole May 2020
Hold on
You don't understand yet
Seems like it went
Just like you planned it

Now you're deeper underneath
I can hear it when you breathe
I can hear you ask yourself
What's wrong with that girl?

But she don't owe you a thing, nah
She's not on your string, yeah
She don't want you

You just don't get it
You don't own her
Can't wait for you to forget
The number to phone her

And we say what we want
And we get what we get
Of our own device
You ain't no prize
Don't give me those eyes

How many times can I let go?
I'm gonna feel it in my bones
How can you say that that one kiss
Means I owe you more than this?

How many times?
How many times?

You just don't get it
You don't own her
Can't wait for you to forget
The number to phone her.

And we say what we want
And we get what we get
Of our own device
You ain't no prize
Don't give me those eyes.

Changes
Nicole May 2020
Love got lost
In the sea of sorrow
And hopes were crushed
Like there's no tomorrow

Everything changed
That one midnight of summer
When I confessed my undying love
But you replied with "I love her."

Glimpse
Nicole Jun 2020
I caught a glimpse
Of you
In the twilight, baby
A pink and purple

And everybody was
Taking notice of you, girl
And you don't even know
You turn 'em on.

Death of love
Nicole Dec 2020
Last Christmas,
I gave you my heart.
But the very next day
you stuffed it underneath the floorboard with the rest of my corpse
until the sound of my heartbeat intensified your descent into madness.
Something random :)

If you only ask me to...

Oh, we can't do this darling,
You know the sky is falling,
You weigh heavy on my heart,
Yeah you know I,
Can be the one to love you,
If you only ask me to....

Dandelion love
Nicole May 2020
I've had my eyes on you for some time
I met you at the coffee shop in line
On our first sip it took you back right to
Your favorite diner outside of the town

I can't get enough of your dandelion love
Oh, I can see a sailboat in the sky
So take me out to see all the things that we could be
Oh, we can let the day fly by

You wrote a song for me and sang it
Now in my head it's always playing
And now we're dancing hand in hand together
Late into the night, under the moon.

You
Nicole May 2020
You
You call me crazy
But I don't make eyes at you
Caught in a moment
If you would've feel it too
Then all is not lost
Nothing is broken
My heart is emboss
And the first words you spoke to me
I can't say I'm not,
falling in love with you

The little sunshine.
Nicole May 10
Tawny days hanging from the sweet autumn breeze are sheltered in corners of my mind I just can’t dare to go to. I hide from them, never closing my eyes—never looking inward. I open them into another haze, though. The dimmest streetlight in the most darksome alley. But between blinks, my eyes burn in golden, and images of remote places flicker in.

Patches of brown leaves on the ground, fragments of Shakespearean poetry carved on trees, a lonely grove between mountains, and a magic lake by my hiding place…

“You would never understand,” I had said to him after weeks of sleeping under willows and sneaking in the cottage through the window. “You don’t know what’s it like to be chased for crimes you didn’t do!” The soldiers had been drawing nearer to the towns about, and I had been left with no choice but to flee from the fate that being an outsider threw at me. “Don’t go,” he had said before my fears revived in my head, killing all peace.....

Friends no more
Nicole May 2020
You shared all your secrets and confided in me
I thought I was helping by setting them free
I trusted too much
Maybe that is my curse
And I saw your face and it tore me apart
Friends first

Friends first
When the tension's mild
When your turn is up and the chips are down
On the same team once but I get it now
Friends first
Friends first

Why don't you care that you threw my heart on the flour
Now I'm moving on
Walking out the door
Friends no more

Friends first
When the seconds count
Friends first
When the tension's mild
When your turn is up and the chips are down
Once BFF's but I guess not now
Friends no more.
This is the second version of friends first poem.

Addicted to you
Nicole May 2020
You're the ** in my favorite song
You're the rhythm
That drives me along
Gotta turn you up to turn me on
It's magnetic I get it
I don't want it to ever stop.

Addicted to you to you
There's nothing that I won't do,
Won't do to see you
I'm so addicted to you, to you
I only really want to,
Want to be near you.

I'm the light on at your place
I'm a bird on the wire
As hard as I try
As I try to forget you
I can't get you out of my mind.

I need you like a candy
I need you like...
Addicted to you,
There's nothing that I can do,
About it.

Dying to breathe

The wind is whirling around
But I am bound,
With no-one around,

The air is
trying to suffocate me
making me dizzy

Still I am searching
for air
to breathe.

Heartbeats
Nicole May 2020
I'm helpless
Overpowered
I swear you hit me at a 100 miles an hour
I stoke the fire and tend the flame
Crashing, burning do it all again.
You're reckless
No mercy
I can't resist it even though I know it hurts me.
So roll the dice and play the game
I'm lost in love with no one else to blame
I'm falling down, I'm falling for you now
So catch me love before I hit the ground.
I know we have crossed the line
When your heartbeats just like mine
And all our stars align

Love me
Nicole Jun 2020
Seek me,
Oh, my love
I've waited ages for you
Now I can't wait more

Touch me,
Oh, my darling
For I've bared my soul
And your every touch makes me
Carve for more

Savour me,
Oh, my love
As my lips call your name
With hunger need and ache.

Take me,
Oh, my love
Wherever you wanna go,
I just wanna be with you
Forever and alone.

Stolen
Nicole Nov 2020
Why?

Oh, can’t I get you out of my head?

Your eyes, those dazzling eyes

They locked my gaze

and made me stare

into the depths of pool

of your beauteous, almond eyes.

Or was it your smile?

Looking at those pink lips ,

reminded me of rose petals

pressed to mine.

It was definitely your touch,

Your gentle and sweet touch

to my cheek

as you drew me closer

to your lips.

But I shied away,

never let you get too close,

Is it why you left me?

I don’t see if I’ll ever get an answer ,

But what I felt is

You took my heart that day,

And I have no intention of having it back.

From the moment I saw you,
You've captured my heart.

I'm a prisoner sentenced
With a lifetime of loving you.

My tiny little secret
Nicole Jul 2020
I have this tiny little secret
That I keep inside of me
Tucked and locked away
With no access to the key

Is this selfish of me?
To keep it hidden from the world
But I didn't want them to know
That my secret was destroying me overall

My mind was numb
My body needed a release
I was frustrated overall
With no clue how to please

I wanted to let it out
Scream with all my might
But my brain kept saying
"Just keep it one more night"

How do I survive this?
How do I fight
Maybe I should just let it go
Loose myself in blinding light.
Hey guys, so this poem is about people facing mental health problems. The secret refers to mental health issues someone is facing and keeping it inside themselves. I just want you all to know that you don't have to keep it inside of yourself just let it all out, If you need I am here for you and you can confide in me. Never let anything toxic stay inside your mind it's really dangerous so don't fret just let it all out.
Thank you :)

And I can be blind
And that is my curse

When your turn is up and the chips are down
Couldn't see before, I get it now

I know and accept all the mistakes I've made
'Cause you are my future and you my past
This won't be the only and it won't be the last

Your laugh, your voice
Your fear, your joy
Everywhere, everywhere
Everywhere is you
