Laughter is like makeup
Proper use
Enables youth and joy
But just as simply
Great amounts
Cover sights for no one's eyes
Concealing a blemish
Disguising deep despair
Fake fools shall be found out
As I have already failed
Makeup run dry
Laughter deemed empty

Not enough
Wolf Dec 2018
I’m not enough
It’s simple to glance by
And see with eyes of grey
Stop screaming in my frail ears!
Voice so horrid
Draws blood from me
I’ll never be enough

A lost stranger
Waved at me today
My aching heart
Hurt a little less
The corners of my lips
Raised a little more
Face every trial
Knowing that you made my day
Brighten a little more
To Lost, be strong through anything that you face.

Incomplete Story
Wolf Dec 2018
To live
Is crafting a prized novel
Memories resting on every page

To end a life
Is deeming it complete
Before the reader is satisfied

A book lacking a proper end
You could call it a book
But it is not a story
I almost finished my book in chapter 13. Refuse to take a life, even if it is your own.

While a year can fly by in a day
Time itself
Is quite the anomaly

A Safe Place
Wolf Dec 2018
Please let me stay
Right here
Where the faces
Are not shadows
But instead
Filled with light

Leave me be
To observe a memory
Or indulge in a thought
So my joy
Will forever
Thrive within

The pain has vanished
The fear finally fled
So why must it be
Sent back to me?

I can't tell what is empty
My stomach
Or my soul
They both hold similar sensations
Craving for something, anything
Depending on how desperate I am
Longing for food
Hungry for love
Both have the power to sustain

Ink On Paper
Wolf Dec 2018
I just don’t know
I just don’t get it
A fluid line of ink on a page
Stops abruptly near the edge
Unsure of where to continue
What to continue
Pooling into a dark stain
On a once praised piece of work

Dear Friends
Wolf Jan 2019
Hir eyes
Are full of emptiness and sorrow
His eyes
Want to be someone, someday
Her eyes
Glisten with beauty, yet she lashes out
His eyes
Keep all of it locked away
Her eyes
Soft and gentle, but under strict laws
His eyes
Hurt and broken again, still moving forward
My eyes
Trapped in fear only longing for joy

We all stand together
Never fading away
For my closest friends, I know you all too well.

The Red Thread
Wolf Dec 2018
A secret treasure all hold
People search while some have found
The red thread winds unseen
As pairs of souls are bound
Limited not by time, nor place
Circumstance cannot take
For it may stretch or tangle
But never will it break
Lovers tied by a scarlet line
Listen to its call
Some miss the chance of fate
Others seek stolen strings, destined to fall
Limited not by time, nor place
Circumstance cannot take
For it may stretch or tangle
But never will it break

The Wait For Forgiveness
Wolf Dec 2018
The apology
Was quite easy
I poured my heart out
Checked and realized my flaws
My thoughts were only of myself
But the wait
For your sweet forgiveness
It is sheer agony
A frail soul as I
Can bear the guilt no longer

When I was afraid
I spoke out to you
Then why do you abandon me so?
In a dark whirlwind of despair
Such pain of the unknown
Just say it already!
Lift me out of the frying pan
And toss me to the raging flames
So after my flesh has melted away
I will receive my rest

The Wandering Soul
Wolf Dec 2018
A wanderer approaches you
His eyes are those who've seen the world
For this man, what would you do?
Turn your cheek and fear his act
Or greet him, ease what he's been through
He'd smile back, old and worn
Like painted art that's lost its hue
"Release hearts still confined, forget not your own."
His advice a mountain, solid and true
Every day you'd meet those eyes, growing ever-so softer
The wandering soul has advice for you

Dive Of The Past
Wolf Dec 2018
I donned a suit of warmth
And dove into my memories
They swirled around my body
Teasing scars I left behind
But what once scraped my soul, past love
Won't hurt the same again
Taken softer, just a heartbeat
Like a storybook for me

A laugh
A grin
A hand
A kiss
Something to treasure, not to fear
For learning
For growing
Even for showing
In my heart, all held dear

I smiled as they carried me away
Letting them flourish, it gave me breath
For I knew a reader stood close by
In case I ever dove too deep

Now those who wander lay frigid
Toss all your cares to the fire

I'll Laugh
Wolf Feb 2019
If I can't hear you
I'll laugh
Since I'm afraid to ask for clarity

If you offend me
I'll laugh
It's just a joke of course...

If you insult me
I'll laugh
My self-confidence cannot be lowered!

If I'm humiliated
I'll laugh
Punishment and anguish will come soon

If you notice the cuts
I'll laugh
"It was just my dog, LOL."

If I'm ready to die
I'll laugh
I don't want you to know

If I cause harm
I'll laugh
It'll make me sound innocent :)

If you see my fear
I'll laugh
To simply strengthen the illusion

3 Year End
Wolf Dec 2018
He put a bullet through my chest
Then handed me a band-aid
It was nice for a while, but he just didn't get it. Indeed I was young and blind, I know better now.

Leap Of Faith
Wolf Dec 2018
I have climbed the cliff
To gain a chance for praise
Alas, the times I know too well
Are ones where I have fallen
The air itself had parted beneath me
Now to the cold, unwelcoming ground
My body is left to lay

But something sparked in my writhing mind
"Take the leap once more"
Brushing off the fear and dust
My ascent began anew

Before a word was uttered
The ground was far beneath my feet
Left behind with those worthless doubts
Today, I took flight

And when the wind was no longer
Beneath my frail, young wings
Smiling faces met my eyes
Warmed my heart
And caught me
Take a leap of faith, speak out and change the world. The chance to fly in joy is worth the risk of failure, for failure does not last forever. Today I talked to people, shared my thoughts, and for once I was not humiliated for it. I wish it was always this way.

Listen to the pitter patter
Paws of black padded pink
Hear the raindrops spray once again
To rest on silky fur
Taste the honey on a spiked tongue
Coating paws in bittersweet
Smell the dry sunlight whisk away sour memories
As the cat carries on
Watch the puddles catch every step
Paces always constant
Feel the blood pool beneath
The cat leaps off the path

Sky Tears
Wolf Jan 2019
Tears shed by my eyes
Capture sorrow and hopelessness
In a wailing sob

Tears shed by the sky
Pour from the heavens to nourish
All who live below

Why can't I
Cry like the sky?

Leaving not a salty burn
But the scent of petrichor

Old Habits
Wolf Feb 2019
Plunging into
Old habits

Why am I here
This once

I will never
Escape my
Own heart

I was sober
So tired of
The word

Now I am drunk
Still too young
501 · Jan 2019
Wolf Jan 2019
True apologies
Form in the heart
A warm hug
A thought-out letter
Or a string of humble words

To my family
To my friends
To a stranger
To God
To the earth

Then why can't I
Say sorry
To myself?
Simply because
I won't be forgiven
456 · Dec 2018
Wolf Dec 2018
I put him before everything
But he valued other things
I gave him everything
But he couldn't take it all at once
He was my everything
But it just pushed him away

Back To The World
Wolf Jan 2019
Back to the world
I still refuse to awaken in

Back to the world
That reminds me of a corpse

Back to the world
Which stole my warmth and praise

Back to the world
Where my safeties cease to exist

Back to the world
That hurts me so

Back to the world
And those burning eyes
Hello world, I'm back.

The Tears They See
Wolf Oct 2018
Tears like hounds I hold back
Alas, the chains snap
Broken as I
Cold eyes beat down
On my worthless pain
Scarlet stains mark my hands
Left by the scraping metal
They see the hounds
Those **** eyes,
Lift your gazes from me!
The very air chokes my throat
Leave be the wandering hounds
Eyes of winter
Can't you see my suffering?
377 · Dec 2018

Break Again
Wolf Dec 2018
When will I finally give up?
But something that is broken
Cannot break again
And yet it is repeated
Like a swirling storm in my head
So I'll keep my eyes up
To see the distant promises
Glittering in the night sky

Sound words
Wolf Dec 2018
How is it
That mere words
Create sounds
In our heads?
If you focus
Lend your ears
You can listen
To silent words
That truly resound
All around you
Snap crackle pop, this poem looks like a guitar.

Bad Mood
Wolf Feb 2019
"Is she doing okay?"
A friend looked down at me
I pretended not to hear, just go away
And leave me be

"Yeah, she's probably fine."
That's how he replied
My mind refuses to align
Why couldn't you have tried?
Even if I don't seem to like it sometimes, it's always nice to ask to show that you care.

Repeated Wounds
Wolf Jan 2019
Paper thin slits
On my pale skin
Blood glistening
A deep crimson

Sets the shame free
Cools the anger
But I still hate
This part of me

Blades press deeper
For each mistake
The searing pain
I cannot hide

This punishment
I deserve it
So my mind says

Tick, Tick
The clock looms over me
Click, Click
Go the gears
Sick, sick

I see things that others can't. There is a large black clock constantly hovering over my head, reminding me of... something, A feeling of what I can only describe as dread.

To The Broken Hearted
Wolf Feb 2019
Keep your head up high
Even if your heart's down low
When the future rolls around
You'll be laughing about it, I know

The courage that you had
To let your feelings show
Keep it with you, always
It'll surely help you grow

Heartbreak hurts in many ways
You might think it's your time to go
But surround yourself with joyful things
And soon you'll start to glow

The ground is still beneath you
Even when the tears do flow
It may seem like it's over now
But you'll get through it, though
For Poolza, and anyone else who is suffering from heartbreak. Don't give up hope, remember to love and accept yourself.

Early Morning Meadow
Wolf Jan 2019
Close your eyes
Take a step

Into the soft grass

Velvet blades in rows
Start tickling your feet

Look to the heavens

The sky a deep navy
Like ocean blue

Stars flicker and giggle

For along the horizon
Lie tips of sleeping dawn

Your feet begin to wander

The wind whispers a breeze
Poking cooly at your cheeks

Fireflies flutter peacefully around you

A heavy veil of fog
Descends upon your figure

Rest soundly until morn

In An Instant
Wolf Feb 2019
Before I even knew what was happening
Blood had already begun to seep out
A sudden flash of pain
Out of sheer loathing
For my own

I am left with
A crowd of small wounds
Perhaps those around me will stay silent
If they question, I will cloak myself in lies once more

Firsthand Heartbreak
Wolf Dec 2018
I get what heartbreak means now
My chest is throbbing
Waiting to see if he still loves me is agonizing, even if I'm still pretty young. I don't want to grow up anymore.

Wolf May 2019
Greetings could hide anything
A friendly how do you do?
Or a who the hell are you?

Don't judge a book by its cover
That's what they all say
Who asked you, anyway?

Look there, someone new!
Wow, isn't she fat?
Out loud I'd never really say that

Of course, it's innocent
If it stays in my mind
Aren't I just so kind!

What a weird species we are
Swipe left, swipe right
She's thin, let her stay the night!

Beneath our watchful eyes
The good soul robs the weak
The criminal supports the meek

But you wouldn't know that
With those closed eyes
We're living lies

My Powers (I Can)
Wolf Dec 2018
The mentally sick are powerless
They said
But I see through those lies
My powers are only for me
I can find loneliness
While I'm drowning in a crowd
I can feel crushing misery
During times of great joy
I can constantly slice my paper skin
Without anyone batting an eye
I can fight my internal battles alone
Barely surviving myself
Still trying, though
Aren't my powers wonderful?
165 · Oct 2018
Wolf Oct 2018
In a swift-paced world
Love is but a conquest
Is it possible to slow down?
I question my mind
Silent to my own ears
Why does he make my heart pound so?
I reassure my mouth
Despite my trembling fingertips
Just laugh, it will pass like the others!
Like a young child
Naive as such
I stumble through ever-changing calamity
Drawn to you
By the tug of heartstrings
My emotions drag me down
You lift me up on angel wings
I'd freeze my flesh
And scorch it too
Just to find a day
To be with you

The Train
Wolf Feb 2019
Seated on a bench
Carved with words
Waiting for the train
To take me away

Somewhere far from
This empty town
The streets are too quiet
Only ghosts remain now

A fireplace flickers
Somewhere down the road
Piercing the night
And the whispering breeze

Cackling relatives
Curious children
The smoke curls
As the sounds fade

Beneath my feet
A deep rumble
The train screeches
To a halt beside me

Mist kisses my cheeks
Before I step into the light
The laughter stings
My scarlet ears

I take a seat
And press against the glass
Breath painting shapes
On the foggy window

I've left the town behind
My home nowhere in sight
I could be going anywhere
Yet I'm headed nowhere
157 · Feb 2019
Mother Earth
Wolf Feb 2019
Mother Earth
Twirls 'round, keeping a balance
Of a calm, dark night
And a luminous day

Mother Earth
Not the fairest maiden around yet
She provides
For ev'ry one of her kin

Mother Earth
Her arms are open to those who fall
For when it's time
We'll return to her

Mother Earth
She's growing tired of our antics
Suffering day by day
On our behalf

Mother Earth
Waving the smoke away from her eyes
The heat now grows

Mother Earth
What have we done to deserve you?
Surely we'll
Be your demise...
This plays like a song in my head, so I hope it doesn't sound too weird.
144 · Feb 2019
Wolf Feb 2019
Is it worth the risk
To confess hidden feelings?
Chance for grief or joy
It could go so wrong, or so right. No matter the outcome, believe in yourself. I've been through it twice and I'm still here.
