the death penalty for me
some say that death is a fate
not worthy of even
the cruelest of killers
yet here I am
waiting for the sweet release of death
from this world
which has left me only
in pieces
and in pain
what what what what the actual ****
I'm not sad as much but this is an old one I've been meaning to share but I haven't so here you go

i never knew how
you say, 'be careful with yourself'
i feel my hands shake
and I reply, 'I don't know how'
Glowing Eyes by Twenty One Pilots
to be in this moment forever,
with our legs intertwined,
our lips pressed together,
our hands everywhere and nowhere,
and my body on fire,
would surely be heaven itself
who says you can't make out on a first date

you were a dream turned
into the startling reality
that shattered my heart
i just really like these two girls and i have zero chance with both of them and i am a stupid angsty teen

as me
"missing you comes in waves
and tonight
I am drowning"

contradictions in love
i hate that i can't control my emotions when it comes to you
i hate that the thought of you beings tears to my eyes
but still makes my heart beat faster
i hate that your smile makes everything else fade to gray
i hate that loving you is so much more painful than it should be
sometimes I wish I had pit of darkness where my heart is like Trump

keeping me afloat from the pain

goodnight
I want to say "I love you"
But I settle for "Goodnight and sweet dreams"
Because loving means falling
And I have a fear of heights.
Pro to dating me:
I'll probably end up writing stupid, sappy and corny love poems for/about you.
Con to dating me:
I probably end up delaying everything else to write that one poem so I eventually end up drowning in work.

ghost town
My heart is empty.
It once thrived but once it's residents no longer needed it,
My heart became deserted.
A few scars and remembrances of a time long gone still remain.
You would not find a single soul though.

My heart was used for what it was worth
And then abandoned.

The fact of the matter is that
I love you in a way that
You do not.
I will sit here with my bouquet of roses
Waiting for you though,
Cause you still matter.

blunt
blunt: adjective
1.
(of a knife, pencil, etc.) having a worn-down edge or point; not sharp.
having a flat or rounded end.

2.
(of a person or remark) uncompromisingly forthright.
----------------------
Today, my mom called me blunt.
And I have to admit that it's true
My thoughts and words are blunt and can hit you like a rock

But,
I realized I am also blunt.
I was once quick and sharp,
Ready to take on the world and fight
Fight like hell
Yet now, I can't

My mind isn't as strong- willed as it used to be
My body isn't as tough as it used to be
They're tired of fighting
I'm tired of fighting
Years of seeing horror and death,
You become used to it
Years of fighting,
You get too battered to stand up once more and fight.
I've become blunt and unbelievably tired.
Maybe.
I should...
Just....
Rest.........
If only my words were to become true.

I have nothing to say anymore.
I refuse to dwell on what could've happened
And what did happen.
But now I have nothing to look forward to.

My days have become a routine, a chore.
Most days I wish to do nothing more then just lay in bed and sulk.
The things I used to love to do,
No longer do so.

I'm tired.
A kind of tired that can't be fixed by sleep.
I have no idea where I was going with this but whatever. **** it.

I should do my HW.
But you still haven't responded,
What if you do while I'm gone and I can't reply?
Then you'll think you aren't important enough to respond to.
I guess I can hold off on it for a little longer.
Looove meeeeeee.
Gawd I'm stupid for liking you.
But the way you laugh,
The way you talk,
The way you simply live.
(Dying whale noises)
God you're perfect in the most imperfect way.
So Imma just casually start recommending songs at the end...

You were red.
You liked me cause I was blue.
You touched me and suddenly I was a lilac sky

Challenge
I just thought of this and wanted to see where it can go. I know I don't have enough followers for this kinda thing but oh well I have 69 (Teehee). The topic is Paradise. Make your own paradise in the form of a poem. Whether your paradise is found within the smile of your crush or a world with no homework I don't care. You have all the power here.
Tag it #paradisechallenge and I'll be checking the tag occasionally to see if anyone even cares. That's all. (fades into darkness)
Nothing hurts more
Than loving someone with all of your heart
While knowing they'll never feel the same

That every glance, touch and word
Is just another trivial event in their day
Yet any little exchange lights up your entire universe

And how you can accept every ounce of their being
For all their flaws, scars and broken pieces
But pettily find beauty in every imperfection
Stupid heart. Liking people who can feel the same. Tsk tsk tsk.

mine
You are not mine,
But sometimes
I pretend
That you wish you were.

I create this idea
That you secretly
Want me.

And I often forget
It's just something
I've made up.

You do not want me,
And you are not mine.
None of the words seem right without you.
^Reason as to why I can't really write anything.

music to my ears
She's an American beauty. I'm an American ******.
My discothèque, Juliet teenage dream.
You are my sunrise. Even in the middle of the night.
My stomach screams just when I look at you.
I dreamt about you nearly every night this week.
I think I want you more than want. And no I need you more than need
I only wanna be with you.

For you I'd bleed myself dry, For you I'd bleed myself dry.
Why can't you want me like the other boys do? They stare at me while I stare at you.
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia. And forget about the stupid little things.

I'm a walking travesty but I'm smiling at everything.
I guess I kinda made a poem from song lyrics about someone.
High five to anyone who can name all the songs and artists without looking it up.
(You'd think this is easy but I have so many songs that it's hard to choose)

dear my first heartbreak,
Where do I even start?
You were the apple of my eye.
You were the Maka to my Crona.
Or in the words on non-otakus:
You were the light in a tunnel of darkness.

We had so many good years.
You got me out of my shell.
You were the only one who could calm me down.


You know I didn't even know I loved you until it was too late.
I was away when they gave those letters out.
When I read mine that said I didn't get in, I shrugged it off.
When I heard you got in, I felt stabbed.
I almost cried.

All of a sudden, you were gone.
Some part of me thought I deserved it.
For not being smart enough,
For not being good enough,
For not being  enough

What happened after is history.
History I don't feel like sharing,
'Cause it's ours.

You were my first love really.
I don't think I'll ever get over you,
And I don't think I ever really want to.
Goodbye.

The day is green
And these chemicals are making me feel romantic.
I’m watching the children blink their eyes 182 times
A minute while the pilots of twenty one planes pass by.
The boys have fallen,
There has been a panic at some sorta disco
And the world is at the lowest of all times.

opposites
You were everything I wasn't
Beautiful,
Graceful,
Quiet,
Everything you did was showered with applause

I was the bad seed.
Reckless,
Hateful,
And oh so angry.
Everything I did got me a scolding

And somehow, I fell for you harder than anyone else.
Too bad you didn't feel the same way.

You're in My Veins
I don't know how to stop writing about you
How to stop picturing myself with you
How to stop seeing you behind my eyelids
Each time I blink

Maybe you're in my bloodstream
Flowing to my heart, reminding it to beat,
But it is more likely you are simply
Each thought that I think

And I guess this is all there is
And maybe I'm out of luck

But in the words
Of the famous Kate Moss,
You're in my veins,
You ****
I kept looking through all the old messages we used to sent each other. And now I can't stop thinking about you.
Every love poem I read
Reminds me a little of you.

The way your eyes twinkle
The way your smile makes me incredibly clumsy

The way my heart races
The way I keep waiting for you to reply

These love poems are puzzle pieces
That form you when put together.

unsaid words
the engine is revving
the headlights are beaming
and I find that I'm losing
my hold on the thread that binds us together
that ties me so tightly
that keeps me attached to
the things left unsaid.
When my blue mood threatens to turn black,
you will show up and tell me my moods are
                                                             ­       azure
                                                    ­               indigo
                                                          ­      cerulean
                                                  ­                  cobalt
                                        ­                    periwinkle
and suddenly the blue will not seem so dark,
more like the color of a noon-bright sky.
                                              You bring the sun.
