why did you leave me?
we had so much to do
yet you still left
like you had nothing to lose
i miss you so much
Mar 11 · 700
I'm sorry
I'm sorry I dragged you down
and let you fall in love
I'm sorry I'd rather drown
than look into the sky above

I'm sorry I deceived you
and made you think I'm perfect
I'm trying to get through
and make this all worth it

I'm sorry that I'm wrong
in every way that isn't right
I'm sorry I'm not strong enough
I'm not able to win this fight

me
me
you see me as broken
i see me as whole
but its just who i am
engraved in my soul
im tired of being ridiculed
and not taken seriously
these are my goals
not just another fantasy

i like guys...
but i also like girls
why?
i dont know
how could i not

the soft curves and delicate touch
my favorite lipstick, just can't get enough
the sweet perfume
and her lighting up the room
the long legs and mischievous smile
feeling things that took a while
to fully process and realize
that i cannot continue living lies

now don't get me wrong
i still like men
but i can't resist  
my cravings for them
still figuring things out

Lose or Lose Less
We watch for days
To see the results
But little do we know
The worst is yet to come

Painting one big canvas

Changing My World
She holds the universe in her little hands
A world of never ending possibilities
A future full of unlimited potential
Little girl, you control the world
You've already changed mine
To my nieces, little girls, go change the world.

Racism
You don’t have to be good and not bad
Just white and not black
But aren’t we all just human?
It’s disgusting. We are all human beings. Born the same way and we will all be dead the same.
Isn’t it funny how
Earth, forged from the universe
Will die by our hands?

Dying dead Dying
I’m

Falling

Fearful

Frightened

I’m

Scared

Suffocating

Suffering

But it’s ok
I’m ok

Accepting

My

Fate
Just playing around with words here. Inspired by a nightmare I had a while ago, but it’s still haunting me.

Nothing
Turned to nothing
By just a phrase
Spoken from anger
When deep in rage
Told I was nothing
By my own blood
It hurts a little
But not too much
Shortened with a different title

Haiku: Opening Up

A Little Green
Childish jealousy
Doesn’t at all look well on me

This Is Why I Stayed Quiet
They told me to call out
If I needed help
Yet I scream and plead
And still am not heard

Eid
Eid
Another holiday,
Different than before,
Tucked in safe,
Watching from afar,
While the rest of the world burns

War
War
There’s no such thing as a war zone
In your own home,
Right?
What a shame
We feel the need to hide from the ones we love

If only to avoid the fear of being judged

Ass-u-me
I’m not who you think
No, not who you see
Now that there’s your problem
You assume who is me

Though you don’t understand
You could at least try
Try and reach your hand
Across this large divide

I’ll reach my hand out too
To make you understand
Me and my goals,
Exactly who I am

Haiku: Lies
Am I a liar
For being someone I'm not
When I should be me?
Thanks for the help with this sis

Vulnerability
They say the ***** in the armor is the greatest weakness
But there is no ***** when there is no armor

They say the bigger they, are the harder they fall
But you can't fall if you were never standing

They say that to beat a wall you need to find the loose brick
But if there is no wall it'll never be broken down

Being scared of vulnerability is giving yourself a vulnerability in the first place
Should vulnerability be feared?

House Of Glass
Once a girl lived
Tucked in a house of glass
Kept for so long
Walking over the shards of broken
Things once whole
It hurts
But she's stuck
Little does she know
The key is herself
The broken house her mind
But its impossible
Or so it seems
To escape the house of glass without
Bleeding out

Relationship
Relationships are circle
At least they're supposed to be
It's a give and a take
Not a take and a leave

Write to Release
Close your eyes
Count to ten
Take a breath
Find a pen
Write it out
Let it loose
Don't get lost
In these woods
For one day
You might get stuck
Way too far
In the muck

Shot at Fame
Blown up
Then
Blown away
Short shot at fame
Just to be washed away

Civil War
My heart is at war with my mind
About what's wrong and what's right
When there really is no black and white

If silence speaks louder than words,
Why was I not heard?

Destiny
I want to write my own story
But sadly I only hold a poet's pen
Not the pen of destiny

Dead Stars
Dreams
Also known as
Childish hallucinations
We all had dreams
But slowly
They lose their glow
And are forgotten
In the sea of dead stars

Help
How do you cry for help
When all you know
Is a silent plea?

Social Anxiety Sucks
Eye contact is not an option
I can’t hold a conversation
It’s basically impossible
Fitting in is not my forte
I can’t even explain
What it feels like
To NOT be able to talk
Even when you really want to
Even after hours of mental preparation
Nothing comes out
Not even a squeak
Social anxiety kinda *****
Sorry, my poetry has gotten extremely sloppy. And I’ve been facing MAJOR writers block. Any suggestions on how to get over this??

Undeniable Ticks
It’s just a
           Tick
                   Tick
                           Tick
Wracking my brain
           Tick
                  Tick
                          Tick
Programmed­ to drive me crazy
           Tick
                  Tick
                          Ticking
Tak­ing over my thoughts
           Tick
                  Tick
                         Ticks
Making it hard to sleep
           Tick
                  Tick
                         Tick
I need to escape
           Tick
                  Tick
                         Tick
My very own brain

Me but Broken
As I look in the mirror
All I see is me
But a lot more broken

You Can’t Fix Me
We bonded over our broken souls
But she’s not broken anymore
With different roots
On a different tree
She doesn’t understand
The pressure on me
She thinks it’s fine
Like she can fix me
But it sure as hell
Ain’t that easy

Quit Blowing Up My Phone
My head being blown up
Just like my phone
I can’t take the pressure
What did I get myself into
I feel like I’m going crazy
With an urge to yank my hair
And slam my head
Against a wall until it bleeds
Scream to let the pressure out
And sob to release the weight

My Poet, Lost at Sea
I’m starting to feel
Less and less poetic
Like a part of me
Is slowly being drained
But not replaced
Hollow and shallow
I cannot not be a poet
For it has grown to be
A huge important part of me
Assisting in who I am
And what I want to be
But I already feel stranded
Far out in the sea

Heart
I gave you
My heart
Now I’m scared
You’ll take it
Run away
And break it

Kinda Happy
Feeling kinda happy for once
It feels like a dream

Wish You Were Here
There’s a place on my hip
Where your hand would fit
A place on my neck
To lay your head
Nuzzling and cuddling
In bed together
Permanent satisfaction
You and me forever
Love you Romeo

Phobias (10w)

Agony
Screams echo
Down the halls
Bouncing on and
Off the walls

Pain and confusion
Lace the screams
Except no one can hear
Through the mask of glee

Too deaf to hear
Too blind to see
The pained cry
And agony
