Red on my shirt
White are my jeans
The sky is blue
And I am free
Like the
American Dream
Happy 4th of July.

Friends say I am a mess
I honestly do admit
My software
Is suffering
From a
Or a glitch
Of some sort

I am a robot
Adjusted to feel
And have a heart
I am programmed
To believe
That I am real

Destination unknown
I don't know
Where I belong
I have no idea
Where to call home
Who to call mine
How to survive

Memories on my hard drive
They are on repeat
When they fade
My heart
Turns on

I wanted to be creative...idk.

I want someone to kiss me hard
and worship my body
until my eyes are seeing stars
as I'm trying to keep calm

kiss my neck, bite it too
make me feel like
I'm the most important woman
**to you

Even though you lied to keep me
I still love you dearly
Should have moved on
Just have let go
But who am I kidding?
I love you so
No jokin'
I can't escape it
The past
Brings me

Sometimes I wish you would give me a call
Maybe give me a sign, a little signal

It fills the room with an airy breeze

Alexander is a dream come true
He makes me smile
Like the moon does
At midnight

There is this intense
Yet sweet sensation
That makes it's way
Through my veins
Whenever he says
Or speaks my name

He reminds me
Of my favorite
When he plays
His guitar
I get so captivated
As I sit and listen

He reminds me of my
Favorite photographer
The way he captures
Every beautiful

He reminds me of the sun
That shines on me
When I need peace
And clarity

Alexander brings out
The best in me
He brings joy
Such a perfect
Young man

No one compares
When it comes to him
He is my sunshine
When it rains
On my parade

Waking up next to him
Is the best thing
In the world
He makes me feel
He makes me
Feel proud
To be his girl

Dedicated to my boyfriend, Alexander.
I love him with all my heart.
Proud to be his girl.

Losing you was hard
but Alice
you have found

One of my family's dogs died recently, Alice was her name.
Cancer stole her away from us. Devastated and heartbroken.
She's free from pain though, one of my dearest angels.

Alice found Wonderland. Miss u so much it hurts :(

My mind is for him
To discover
My body is for him
To uncover
My skin is for him
To feel and touch
My lips are for him
To kiss and embrace
My legs are for him to
Move his hand up
My dress
I'm his
Art piece
His mission
Is to love
& please

The melody is bittersweet

I remember making this account
never knew what to expect
in a little over four months
my poems have been read
in total, almost fifty thousand times
it amazes my creative brain
and overthinking mind
can't believe so many
like my angry rhymes
and all the time
that I write
poems about love
poems about stories
poems about hate
poems about tragedies
it all means so much
a thank you isn't enough
you make me smile constantly
your loving support soothes me
I came on here, seeking clarity
and found it through
poetry and all of you
so thank you God
for blessing me
with creativity
with passion
with imagination

I know you get attached
but tearing our friendship up
just because I made up
with a friend of mine
who you dislike
why guilt trip?

you blocked me online
without a single warning
can't help but feel stupid
for re-connecting
with my old friend
because now you crossed a line
saying I stabbed you in the back
when all I did was make amends
because I couldn't hold a grudge

you say I betrayed you
but this isn't about loyalty
this is about your paranoid state
the one which truly scares me
I wish I knew what to do

if I can't be friends
with her
because of an old fight
that you both had
then why
have you
in my life?

I cherish you
I always have
but controlling
who I'm friends with
that is something
I can't understand

you said nothing
would ever come between us
well, I guess I was right
because something did

I haven't done you any harm
guilt tripping me was wrong

my friendships
don't affect your life
so why think
as if they do?

felt like venting...I needed an emotional outlet.

haven't felt so happy in months
feels like I've dried up my tears
and fought my way out
of this darkness
which used to possess
every part of my being
but now, it feels like
I am finally healing

no more are the mascara stained pillows
no more is the feeling of drowning in sorrow
gone is the emptiness in which I used to feel
seems like real life has re-gained it's appeal

couldn't be where I am without you
or the hope you gave me
I feel like I'm brand new
your love set me free
it helped me discover
my old self again
it helped me uncover
so much of a good thing

your lipstick of lies
is wearing off tonight
you can't touch
what you lost
and think
it's too late
to drown out
your sorrows
with drinks
find someone else
if you need love
don't even approach
my table in the club
unless you're dying
for a punch

we barely speak for weeks
then you ask if I'm alright


you know I'm not?
you know I'm sad
you know I'm depressed
you know I'm hurt and lost
you know I hate being ignored
you know I hate speaking to you first

you know all this
so don't ******* ask
if I'm alright
when you know
that I am not
I never am
I'm always down
because I'm just another one
in those eyes of yours

how I can mean so little to you
is beyond shocking
because guess what?
you're my everything

best friends forever...

more like, never.

the baddest addictions
are with good intentions
not to cause harm
but to feel okay
I can say
I've never broken an arm
never been under
a sadistic charm
broken myself
but healed up again
kept going back
to feel my heart
patiently beating
poisonous thoughts
are like cyanide
so easy to think
it's even easier to die
the more addictions I have
the better I seem to feel
how tragic is that?
life has some
but no appeal

Hundred dollar bills in my pocket
Gold chains around my neck
If you ever mess with me
I'll stiletto yo face
Got that Italian swag
And a personality to match
People say I'm horrible
But no, I'm just a *****
I don't take no ****
From a bunch
Of wannabes
What you see
Is what you get
When it comes
To a girl like me

Hungover and tired
I am barely inspired
Mouth tastes of regret
At least it's not *****
At least I'm alright
Not like last night
At least I didn't
Make a mistake
Or take too much
Or consume a lot
Or get a toxic rush
Writer's block *****
No creativity in my blood
No energy in my veins
I keep trying but
Failure again
And again

If I wanted to be ignored
I would have dug myself a grave
With not even a tombstone
Or anything to show my name
Just a small, little place
To put myself to rest
An unknown burial ground
To put my body at ease
And leave it with
Flowers surrounded
For a bit of luck
Or just to
Make it look nice
I'm not asking for much
Just for a bit of support
To make my existence
Feel like it's worth something
All I ever asked for
Was tender love
And tender care
I have a fragile heart
Take care of it
Before it's too late

its so hard to believe
that I am alive
to hold on
and to smile
when I feel so small
I wish sometimes
I could have it all
but that would be too much
too much of a good thing
life is meant for
a bit of suffering
so we are grateful
for everything
that we own

we take for granted
the paths of stone
that we walk on
we complain about
the dimes in
our pockets
how they are
not dollars

we talk about
how we wear
no real gold
only silver
or platinum
or colored
gem stones

we feel so poor
but let's face it
as long as
we're wealthy
in health
nothing else
should matter

be grateful for the air
that you breathe
be grateful for the love
you have received
be grateful for the people
who are in your life
be grateful for
the small things
that make you smile

be grateful for...your heartbeat.

You have a place in my heart
A special place indeed
And as well as a place
In this bed of ours

We share cigarettes
We share blankets
We share cuddles
We share kisses
We share feelings
We share our
Darkest emotions
We share ****
We share tea
We share food
We share a home

We share the bad days
And the most beautiful
Romantic nights
Of our entire life

Our love is based on
Trust & commitment
His positive vibes
I look upon
As true

This guy sees my worst
Still calls me the best
Greatest boyfriend
I have ever had
The chance to have

I always type those sappy text messages
and those 'better late than never' sentences
I type em' up, but I don't press send
I feel bad because I ruined what we had
I said such cruel things and you had enough
It's all my fault, and I know that
but I never meant to hurt you
I say things when I'm mad, boo
I'm stupid for breaking us
And our friendship apart
I always cry at night
Wishing we could talk
Like we used to
But we can't
Because of me
I ruined our bond
I hurt you
But I never
Never meant to

My sister is my world
My favorite person
My beautiful sibling
All of that in one girl

She makes me smile
When I am sad
Best sister
I could ever

She sings like an angel
Plays piano, so beautiful
Slays the charts
With her songs
Proud is
An understatement
Proud to be the sister
Of someone with so much talent

I wish I had just an ounce of that
Someday, I hope to make her feel proud
Proud of me and the person I long to be
A success in this complicated society

Your love was sweet
I was hooked
From the first taste
I was addicted
Didn't want it
To go to waste

It was a bitter pill
That I wanted to swallow
But now, I regret
Ever taking that risk
Because now, I feel sick
The pain won't go away today
Or even tomorrow.

Talking to you is a part of my daily routine
Just the words ''I love you''
ignites that creative spark inside me

I could talk to you for endless hours
and never get bored
and as soon as you go to sleep
you'll be the only one on my mind

until I get lost in yet another fantasy
and imagine you and I together
in my explicit dreams

I've known you for not so long
but it feels like forever and a day
since you captivated my heart
like a beautiful love song
taking all my bad thoughts away
and replacing them
with a smile
and happy eyes

Quality friendship time
rolling cigs and
lighting blunts
drinking wine
having fun
living quite a bit
for the hell of it

I love my friends
I love my blunts
I love my ***** shots
and wine glasses
I like laughing loud
and speaking my mind
all while I'm high
and having fun

My friends make life hilarious
they make me smile
when times get rough
I feel so very fine
when I'm here with them
they make me feel okay
when life leads me
the other way

memories stick around
but they become
easier to ignore
easier than before

your face does still matter
but it's gotten easier
to not always remember
the days we crashed
into a depressing slumber
your eyes are still precious
but I've learned how to cope
and not fall right under
under your spell
like I used to
I guess I can say
that I'm getting
right over you

memories are cherished
but the present isn't
we changed and so much
I cannot stick around
I'm too good enough
I am so much stronger
but I used to be weaker
but clarity made me wiser
we were never meant to be
as a whole, us together

your everything wasn't pure enough
I can't give to someone who always takes
but never seems to give a lot back
I lost so much, went out of my lengths
just to keep your heart beating
just to keep you near me
but this time, I'll be leaving
I hope you'll be good
right here without me
but of course you will be
I am a stranger
you never loved me
but sometimes
I know you do
even though you
never took the chance
to prove your worthyness
sometimes I believe you
and tell myself I'm not over this
but it's time to be moving on
but you'll always be
the one who
took my heart

Can't go on without your love
You are the one I'll always want
I feel like I have found the one
But you don't love me and it hurts
Please forgive me, falling hard
For the one who left me scarred
My heart is empty without you
You're the reason I pulled through
Don't leave me alone here
I'm falling down the stairs
My dress is covered with stains
The stains which are my flaws
Forgive me, I'm losing control
I need your love, I'm so ill
There are no happy pills
Only lows and temporary thrills
Cannot go on like this
You said you'd catch my fall
My heart, it suffocates
You made me feel
Like I had it all
You took my heart
I broke down my walls
Stood for nothing
Now my heart
Is crumbling
My hands are shaking
My knees are trembling
You are the medicine
Why aren't you then?

Please break my bed
Just don't break my heart
Please don't mess with my head

Just don't break it
Relax my mind
Just don't be unkind

Loving you drove me to the edge
And now I seem to have relapsed
Devotion put me to the test
It caused a major collapse

Just like I knew you would
All of this pain because
You were hard not to love

People could send words like knives my way and I would still find a way to laugh. You can't break me down, I'm so far off the ground. I have heard every word and insult in the book, but I still don't give a ****. No reason to be hurt by some *******'s words which are probably lies. I might be ugly or whatever people say, but still prettier than your ****** personalities and words of hate. Too happy to care about haters today, don't bother with me, I won't cry or tear up for a ******* ****.

sent her a long message
she never bothered to reply
it made me feel so empty
the feeling is hard to deny

she's supposed to be
my dear best friend
but her ways of emotions
makes me feel like
we're at our end

I guess I miss her
and our fun times
thought it meant forever
but now it feels like lies

my heart is broken
broken by someone
who meant the world to me
look at what we've become

she'll never ever read this
to her, my poems don't exist
if only she could see it
maybe she'd give me a hug
or a bit of comfort
for all the time lost
along the bumpy road
of our friendship

I still get butterflies
When I think of your smile
The way your lips felt on mine

Weakest points

Everything reminds me of you
Even the sky's lovely color
Of midnight blue

you're on my mind
like you were last night
and the day before that

you're in my dreams
always visiting me

I prefer to be asleep
because my fantasies
are better than reality

you're in my thoughts
I kinda hope I'm in yours
because I have a burning desire
to reignite what used to be ours

hurting you is something
that I couldn't do

you're the one I'm wanting

My stable house of cards is about to collapse
My stomach is literally in knots
Trying to cope with all this
This sense of unhappiness
Which affects my relationships
More than it probably should
It's all so mixed up
I wish I could
Run away from my thoughts
But I know I can't
So I'm drowning in those
Like a girl that can't swim
In the rivers of love
In the rivers of pain
Constantly trying
To give herself healing
To try and cover her wounds
But she knows she never could
Lost, misunderstood
Trying to hold on
Trying to stand
On the cold
Hard ground
Even though
She would rather

This poem is not exactly great, but I felt like writing this...because of the mood I'm currently in.
