it seems like you've disappeared, vanished, evaporated from my life. have you forgotten about me?
or do you just not choose to acknowledge my cries for me?
i chose to believe in you, everyday, but it seems like you do not believe in me.

have you given up or me?
am i a lost cause?
perhaps this is why you haven't been answering my prayers.

God, are you listening to me? i need you.
hello?
its me, are you still there.

what is good?
his dark hair,
his olive complexion,
his mysterious eyes,

drew me in like a moth fleeing to a fire.

but like the moth, going into what seemed good, ended with me getting burned.
have you ever ate so much much that you started to feel sick?

you're full but they just keep feeding you and feeding you.

you get so fed up until you just *****.

and then after you *****.

you feel empty

and shaky.

fragile







that's what my relapse felt like.

breakfast:
"I'm not hungry, mother. I will get something at school."
No, I'm starving, but I cannot eat breakfast because I have to thin.

Lunch:
"Oh, why am I not eating? I just had a big breakfast, friend."
No, I skipped breakfast because I have to be thin. I will not eat lunch because I  want to a have a skinny waist.

Dinner:
"Oh, Mother, Im not hungry mother. I had a big lunch!"

No,

I don't want your filthy hands caressing my curves.

Please remove your hands from my chest, you're hurting me.

I am begging you, don't take away the only innocence I have left.

No, I don't want you on top of me, you're crushing my fraile body.

Stop it.


Get off of me.


No.


Please.



Shouldn't these pleas be enough for you to stop?

don't tell me you love me.

don't tell me you loved me if you broke me.

don't tell me you love me if you manipulated me.

don't tell me you love me if you wanted her body.

don't tell me you love me if you left me.

don't tell me you love me,

because you're lying.

broken effort
laura-jessica Oct 2018
i just now, fell worse,
just a scrape of a blade

let tears fall to my cheeks
that didn't damp for months

the rain from my eyes
that shouldn't have came today

for the pouring sorrow streaming down my face
pushed me into a dreadful relapse.

for the relapse washed away my months of broken efforts away
with my tears.

my cries of blue
and my arms of red
my efforts are broken
and better left unsaid.

stick thin,

i want to be envied by girls
not the envious.

stick thin,

i want to see my ribs bulge out of my skin.

stick thin,

i want my wrist to be as small as 7 year olds.

stick thin,

i want to be as small as my self esteem.

when I"m with my friends,
I'm loud and jumping off the walls.

like I'm on high.

but when they leave,
when its done.

there is nothing left.
nothing more than a silence.

nothing more than an after math of a high.

you know that little rush of adrenaline you get when you're about
to fall?

that's what it feels like to have anxiety.

to be on edge all the time,
thinking you're about to be pushed over

into a sea of people
drowning you

it feels like





you






are





dying

it was bad enough you cheated,

i remember your body on top of me, crushing me.
i remember you inserting yourself into my innocent fraile body.

i remember you only went faster and harder,
and with every push,
every painful ******,
every traumatic moment,

my youth,
my innoncence

was stripped away and ****** into oblivion.

and its not my problem that he likes me better than he does to you.

i know you're ******* that he kisses me with tongue and he only pecked your cheek.

sorry i stole your boyfriend,
i don't really care if you hate my guts because he likes me better than he does to you.

i'm not sorry i stole your boyfriend,
but was he really yours if he forged all those "i love you's"

sorry i'm not sorry i stole your boyfriend.

what my relapse felt like.
laura-jessica Apr 2018
i was alone.
in the bath, the hot water swaying all the way to my neck.

my hot hot tears helped fill the clear bath,
as they came pouring out with no sobs or emotion.

i stared at the ceiling counting the microscopic dots,
trying to distract myself.
trying to avoid it.

eventually the voices started yelling at me and i need them to stop.

it was overwhelming for anyone who has gone through that.
i am barely a teenager, why me?

a blinked passed and the cool metal sat between the 2nd knuckle of my pointer finger and my thumb.

it just got louder.
and louder.
and louder.

just one time and you'll feel better.
one cut.

just another.
two cut.

three cut.

four cut.

and suddenly all i saw was red.

red blade.

red water.

red wrist.

red blood.



i thought scarce 'what have i done?'

laura-jessica Apr 2018
i am closed womb of depression, but you seldom notice.
so i just sit there,

in a cluster of adherents to cut my life in half.

i dress in fake smiles everyday, but you sporadically never seemed to care.

please care.

i love you.
Apr 2018 · 115
would you?
laura-jessica Apr 2018
if i told you it was love, would you believe me?
laura-jessica Apr 2018
i can't do it.
i can't go on another day, depressed and not loved.

wait.
not loved?
what?
i'm loved?

i'm loved right?

the old light bulb is my mind,
constantly flickering from on and off,

but i can't fix it, not even with my tools.

i don't want be here,
i want to be alone.
i just wanna end it.

am i loved?
wait.
when was the last time someone said they loved me?
i'm not loved?
i'm loved.
i'm loved right?

i'm scared it's dark,
and it keeps getting darker.

where's the light?

was there a light?
i don't know.

thats stupid.
i'm stupid.
just a series of thoughts in my head

The Kids are Not innocent.
laura-jessica Apr 2018
his lips are soft like a sweet child's blanket,
but his tongue likes to naughty dance with mine.

i can feel his passion on me and we both got combusted into it.

his hands gripped on my petite waist like he was riding a bicycle.

he tastes just like vanilla,
he's just as sweet as buttercream.

his cheeks are like an oven,
burning up around me.

he's anything but innocent,
but he's more than just a 14 year old boy.

little bump
laura-jessica Mar 2018
you'll have your father hair,
your mothers eyes

you'll have your brothers nose,
your sisters perfect little dimples.

because you are a little bump,
unborn.

because you are an awaited little miracle.
you are a precious little sunshine.

4 months in,
we lost you.

our hearts sunk to the floor,
in a heartache.

because you were a little bump,
unborn.

we would never know if you had
your fathers hair or your mothers eyes

we can't know
if you'd have you brothers nose or sisters perfect little dimples.

because you are gone.

bothersome.
laura-jessica Mar 2018
i do not write to impress,
i write express me.

if you do not like it,
could you please leave.
i hate it when i get told what i'm feeling, what i'm not, or how i should feel. you do not know my feelings unless i write it. people tell me how to write, i love constructive criticism, but do not tell me how to write. yes i am young, but that really shouldn't matter, it truly bothers me when i get told "it wasn't real love." or something along the lines. if you don't like my poetry that is okay, you valid to have your opinion, but i am valid to know my own feelings. thank you.

boundless
laura-jessica Mar 2018
i would give all i own,
everything i will own,

to feel pain again,

because i don't feel anything.

I understand pain is horrible
but how can it be more terrible

than this infinite silence that lives inside of me?
