no one knows pain
the ones
curse their beloveds
bleed their heart

the ones
watch blood bubble up
from wounds

the ones
fill themselves up
to empty it all
in a bathroom stall

the ones
refuse their meals
live for the scale
don't leave

the crying poet
the bleeding cutter
the vomiting bulimic
the starving anorexic
the lost
the empty
the lonely
the unloved

the ones
love too much
not enough

no one knows pain
humans know pain
Today, today
you suffered loses
life and death
a strange promise,
The Devil's disciples
we must be,
day by day
pulling the trigger,
More than enough
young men in vain
have to die,
This must be Hell's Anniversary
This was an assignment in a history class during my sophomore year in high school. 5-29-08.
It's about World War II. The poem was created by using only a few chosen words out of letters to and from soldiers from the war.

Fireworks in my head,
Your smile in my heart,
Weird feelings in my stomach,
Whispers in the dark,
Laughter in my dreams,
Hopes in the future,
Flies in my memories,
Posters in the nature,
Poems in my book,
Sleeping bags in the garden,
Us together in my mind,
Spiders in Heaven,
Tears in my eyes,
Soap in my hair,
Holding hands in my bed,
Love in the air,
Your laugh in my ears,
Walks in the rain,
Cries in my nightmares,
Regrets in my pain,
Torture in my chest,
Clouds in the sky,
Sharks in the water,
Bright hopes in your eye,
Love shared in a kiss,
Only seconds in our last hug,
Elephants in a banana tree,

Smile !

Stop trying to be perfect,
There's no reason to be worried
Everybody has a defect,
Everybody is a bit stupid.

Stop listening to those people
Who say you're not worth it,
They're just trying to hurt your soul,
Trying to **** your spirit.

Stop hiding your face
Under so much foundation,
Dark circles will not be erased,
It won't bring you admiration...

Stop everything. Just live. Just love.
Do something you like to do,
It will become all you can think of.
Don't let anything stop you.

Smile, because life is amazing,
And because you want to be happy
Smile, just spread your wings,
And be who you want to be.

Think about all those people around you,
Who think you are special
Think that their love is so true,
And that's why life is magical.

You have so many things to live for,
Smile, because you want to be someone,
And because you want to do more
Smile, because you want to be a free man.

*Smile. Life is beautiful.

Two shadows, lying down on a bed,
Staring into each other's eyes
Holding hands, nothing needed to be said,
Love takes people higher than the skies.

Silently, the first shadow
Wraps her arms around the other one
And kisses her, but she doesn't know
That her friend is now wearing an invisible smile.

The two shadows, you understand
Are you and me on that special night
Don't say anything, just hold my hand
And feel the beat of my heart.

Eyes closed, I can feel your fingers
Quickly running down my back,
I suddenly grab your arm, nothing else matters
It always gives me a heart attack...

Then I just try to get away from you,
My face hidden behind my hand
I keep saying I'm sorry, and this is so true
But I always come back to you under your command.

When you softly kiss my cheek
With an inaudible sound,
I go crazy and it lasts for weeks,
I go deeper and deeper into the ground.

In my head, there are so many voices
Saying how much I love you over and over again
Should I say it out loud ? Do I even have the choice ?
Oh God, you're taking control over my brain...

If only I could tell you how I really feel
When your lips slowly touch mine,
I just keep thinking that this can't be real,
It's really hard to define.

It's like an explosion in my head,
In my heart, my soul, my whole body
If you want to **** me, then go ahead
I'm all yours and I would die happy.

And now our fingers are entwined,
I keep wondering if I'm dreaming
Well if I am, and if love is a dream,
Then let me sleep and wake me up in the morning.

I never thought I could ever love someone so much,
But now that it happened, I'm asking for more
My heart is raging at your touch,
My face feels your caress, which I adore.

As I'm slowly falling asleep,
Wrapped in your arms, enjoying my youth
I can hear you whisper ''I love you, darling''
There is nothing else I need to know, your love is enough.
This is a poem I wrote for my best friend, my everything, my source of inspiration.

I know it's not right,
But I can't stop thinking of you
Everyday is an internal fight
Never felt something so true.

I swear I'm not talking about teenage love
Something that is going to disappear tomorrow
You became all I can think of
My love for you is the reason of my sorrow.

I shouldn't feel something like this,
But I think it's a feeling I can't fight
I just want to hold you, I just need a kiss
You melted the ice all around my heart.

Forbidden love, I call your name
You took control over my soul and my brain
I love you and I'm the one to blame
Feeling so strong that is causing me pain.
I have to admit though, it's a beautiful feeling...
