i want to write words
swimming in metaphor
used to deduce the inner meanings
of thought
by english classes to come
but i don't
because simply
i am just alone
no blue curtains
no storms on the horizon
just alone. simple.
id rather not torture those poor english class kids

oh love
the one subject
most written about
most yearned after
a touch
a sigh
a kiss
but when love turns
weather- worn
i don't believe that is love
that is another word
love is an adjective
but that, that comfort
is an action
i believe that is
love changes into other things. Not all of them bad

I was holding your hand
walking in the dark
i stumbled
you held
you tripped
i caught you
i fell
you let go
and did not catch me again.
it's hard having someone who you thought would always be there... just leave. sorry for the bummers, i just need to write it out

witch thoughts
her eyes were always beautiful
vibrant green of summer memory
always watching, laughing
her eyes are just so sweet
and pure
i want them to be mine
I need green for my collection
i need them
want them
take them

his eyes were always beautiful...

gray canyon
separation builds
the color fades
its not the same
a yawning pit
opens between us
i cannot reach across
i do not even try
i don't want to see
and i don't know why
but i let the distance grow
and all i feel is relief
those bonds
i don't have to care about
anymore soon,
and I'm counting the days
does that make me awful?
sometimes, distance is the only solution. sometimes, you have to give people up

look at the poem
look at the words
just sit and breathe
no need to stir
look at your thoughts
just sit and live
look at this poem,
and know
you're doing great, kid
this is a moment in time when you can just breathe and sort your thoughts. stay as long as you like :)

scary story
the under bed monster
grabbed his own snack
he munched my toes down
and chewed with a smack
the other foot down
he snatched with glee
and gobbled it down
right up to the knee
I lowered a hand,
he savored each bite
"There's more where that came from!"
I say that to the "blight"
Frankenstein and Monster
the friendship of fright!
tried for a fun, spooky story. Enjoy! Give it a like if you would like to see this in a series?

i don't like to be vulnerable
i push people away
no man is an island
but nobody stays
being alone, i am safe
I'm alone, but I'm okay
i've been pushing people away, it's the only way to protect myself. I'm trying to learn not to.

rock, paper, scissors
a game we always played
i could always win
i fell for him
but rock must crush
and scissors must cut
and this time
i didn't win
having someone not feel the same way you do can hurt

rainy day
cup of cocoa in my hand

how sharp?
how did you sharpen
the words you used
against me?
did you hone them on hate?
did you forge them with pain?
until you had the perfect edge
to make me bleed?
it does not matter
it cuts all the same
words hurt

i am angry
i am SO
i am angry at this world
at my family
at everyone
it roils in my chest
a seething, churning ache
of red and rage and hate and pain
it bubbles up
and i spit out poisonous words
that I don't regret
i haven't been this angry in a long time. I'm hurting and angry and so very very tired.

i'm at the top
of the steps
the window nearby
shining with the light
of you
i bask
i fall
flat on my back
in the darkened hall
i find another case of stairs
and begin to climb
being cast aside *****, but finding a new set of stairs helps

trippin' on love
Average Dreamer Dec 2020
See him
walk in to the room
and i'm tripping
his existence makes me
my whole body lifted by
raging butterflies
my most dangerous
psychedelic love
this guy i like, he's just different. he makes me happy just by existing.
Dec 2020 · 28
Average Dreamer Dec 2020
he put the
harm in charm
he let me go
shattered love

Dec 2020 · 34
Average Dreamer Dec 2020
i was flattered
by your call
i think i mattered
after all
and then you're gone

the hardest part
Average Dreamer Dec 2020
the hardest part
of being me
is getting up
and seeing the
sun rise after
my darkest moment
to face the day
and keep going
its getting harder and harder to want to keep going
Dec 2020 · 33
Average Dreamer Dec 2020
i said before
im scared what will happen
if i leave
but im more terrified
of what i'll have to do
to survive
in this world
if i stay.
i'm at a crossroads in my life and a lot is coming at me. im scared and sad and terrified of what comes next. and i just have to keep going and face the day. and that's the hardest part.

Average Dreamer Dec 2020
i don't want to be here anymore
do i need to be?
am i so necessary
to the world
that i'm still here?
i have people here
people adapt with loss
I don't want them to adapt
so I will stay.
So i don't want to be here
but I need to be.

Average Dreamer Dec 2020
these are the best years of my life
im young

i have the world at my feet
an oyster
if these are the best years
then why cant i feel
when im living them

is it?
Average Dreamer Dec 2020
is it strength
to stay
instead of ending?
or am I too afraid of what
could come next?
I am not brave.
I am not strong.
I am just afraid,
im struggling hard. im sorry guys, im trying to get better
Dec 2020 · 74
Average Dreamer Dec 2020
i see him
shift and smile
wave and laugh
play rock paper scissors
talk, sing, draw, dance
i love him
but I don't have a chance
to say it
i have feelings for someone. im afraid.

your hand
Average Dreamer Dec 2020
you showed me your hands
the cracks and splits
in your knuckles
soft palms
strong grip
just the right size
for mine
Dec 2020 · 98
Average Dreamer Dec 2020
when you reached for me
i asked if you needed something
you said you just wanted to touch me
i was confused
i flinched
i didn't know
people were meant to
reach out
for touch?
i don't come from a touchy family, so it's pretty foreign to me
Dec 2020 · 123
Average Dreamer Dec 2020
i was stuck
screaming alone
in the dark
i wanted to be heard
by anyone
you turned around
lent an ear
and i was home
please listen.

Average Dreamer Sep 2020
don't judge people
who's shoelaces
you wouldn't be strong enough
to tie
kind of an extension on walk a mile in someone else's shoes
Average Dreamer Sep 2020
some don't want to change the world
some want to watch it raze
that's a funny thing but,
fire is a chemical change
note: arson is illegal do NOT test me
Sep 2020 · 54
Average Dreamer Sep 2020
it's dark in here
my brain complains
the thoughts are just so hurtful
I know, I say with heart in pain
the world is just that way
kind of a downer guys, it's been a rough few weeks
Sep 2020 · 528
Average Dreamer Sep 2020
i am stuck
to many people
too big too much too loud
a stray elbow, a well intended touch
too much
too MUCH
don't see me break down
don't touch me
don't hear me
don't feel me
don't feel
don't touch me don't touch me
don't touch dont touch DONT TOUCH ME
we've all been here. been crammed in a car for too long or at a party that you're tired of. thought it needed a poem. i'm plenty social but when i've had enough i've had enough y'know

the feel of It
Average Dreamer Sep 2020
i start to feel
alarm, panic
stress begins
sweat breaks out
i ration
it's okay
i am safe
i am whole
It doesn't care
i shake and shake and shakeshakeshake
no control
can't calm must calm must be calm
i need control
i plead with my thoughts
soothe, breathe, calm
i pacify It
it stops
and begins again
this is how anxiety, or It feels. im losing control.

Average Dreamer Sep 2020
I cannot grip
with my decaying hands

i wither away
Sep 2020 · 55
Average Dreamer Sep 2020
it's getting bad again
i barely made it through
the last storm
the rough sea
drowning in my own mind
but I had to survive
by some instinct
so I clung to the mast
and sailed on
but i do not know
how far i can last
until i
i can't sail forever

the shawl
Average Dreamer Sep 2020
she grabs her shawl
of light gray mist
walks to the sea
where boats oft list
she walks the waves
dimming the moon
she looks for her
her ship of doom
a watery grave
the Sailors Tomb
mist is dangerous on the sea

he was
Average Dreamer Sep 2020
he was cloudy skies
and quiet nights
cherry kisses
and silent fights
he was summer storms
and campfire stories
lazy smiles and
broken eyes
he was stars and
night and
black and blue
he was a lot
but it wasn't true
people are a lot but some of it is a facade. some more than others
Sep 2020 · 65
what it's like
Average Dreamer Sep 2020
please understand
I don't mean to break
I just have all these thoughts
that I can't seem to shake
I just want to leave
I just want to cry
I just want my mom
I just want to
anxiety is rough sometimes
Sep 2020 · 31
Average Dreamer Sep 2020
my thoughts are like string
all tied in a knot
so i write poems
to understand what
I thought
it rhymes yay

Sep 2020 · 63
Average Dreamer Sep 2020
he was different
but everyone says that
but he could have been different;
he made me feel special
he wasn't quite different
he was too much the same
he was scared to change
he was so many things
but when he stopped being
the person I thought he was
he was just
i've lost a lot of people i care about and i feel like i only have more to lose

my story
Average Dreamer Sep 2020
I met my summer
a sweet August night
a sugar-sticky sweet smile
and a promise of friendship
forever, so long ago
not knowing, my little summer
would soon fall
hey guys might make this a multiple part poem so read it or not im just here to write
Sep 2020 · 27
Average Dreamer Sep 2020
I can feel it
the too- long response
the blank stare because
you were somewhere else
the distracted touches
the obligatory
i love you's
so you wouldn't hurt me
i can sense the loss of
i'm all alone now

different love
Average Dreamer Sep 2020
puzzles and poems
and fire and stars
dancing in the lonely hours
I'll do all of these if
I could only be
but you want
a different love
one of scarlet nights;
whispered words by
broken voices
a spark
but nothing more than smoke
and ash
i want to grow but I have nothing to plant
Sep 2020 · 63
the choice
Average Dreamer Sep 2020
when I think about it
i'm never anyone's
first choice
they all have a
and you can't ever ask them to choose between
but I know
deep down
it'll never be
i'm so tired of coming second to everyone else

tough world.
Average Dreamer Jun 2020
it's a tough world we live in.
no question mark
it's a statement
a fact
we know,
and we're ready to fight
we know the world is a cold cruel place sometimes. I was originally going to put scared, but I've looked at the world recently, and I don't see fear. I see strength. Keep going, it'll all come out in the end

love and fear
Average Dreamer Jun 2020
Love crooned to Fear
"Hello my dear,
what shall be of our dreams?"
Fear replied
"They shall be naught
but memories of our
slumbering hopes"
Love shook their head
"Fear, my sweet,
when will you learn?"
Fear sighed,
"Perhaps never my Love."
"Oh Fear, you're shackled to
yourself. Let go, Fear,
my dearest."
but Fear was afraid
and could not unlock himself
for his Love.
Love wept,
for loving someone, is the truest
love is one of the greatest fears we experience.
May 2020 · 133
Average Dreamer May 2020
please just show affection to me
act like you care
message me
talk to me
about anything
ask if I'm okay
comfort me if I'm not
please just pretend you want me
so that my pretending feels real
please let me lie to myself
found out this guy i'd fallen for pretty hard asked out someone else
i just needed him to show some semblance of caring so that I could fool myself that he liked me too but I don't know what to do with this information

quarantine blues
Average Dreamer Apr 2020
i'm stuck in quarantine
it's making me feel blue
I'm keeping my room clean
and crafting with lots of glue
so while we're stuck at home
lets write some poetry
write some words and happy thoughts
about brighter times to see
I've been in quarantine for almost two weeks (!!!) I'm not sick, just had a brother come home from an out of the country mission, so to stay safe, I'm staying home. We can be strong together guys, we've got this, (just six feet away)

not in love
Average Dreamer Apr 2020
i didn't love him
too young
just puppy love
but i want to know
why it hurt to watch you go
and why it still hurts
and why you left
and why you were silent to me
and why I let you in
and why I miss you
and why my heart feels bruised
and why I...
i love you
but it's too late
i'm not in love
I'm not in love
I'm NOT in love
and my heart isn't broken
you don't deserve that much credit.
i didn't love him. i barely knew how i felt about him when he did make an effort to me. but now... i didn't love him because now there's nothing to love.
