I thought

we’ve been    through it all

but you            threw it all



nothing is left
                             now but
my broken pieces
why’d you have to do that to us?

to me?

before you **** yourself,
just remember
that there are
places you have not been
and things you have not seen.
and poems to awe
art to draw
fields to walk through,
people to talk to,
music to take in,
games to win,
and books to be read.

so why,
oh why
do you wish
to be dead?
it's your life
but the people
around you
get hurt too.

forever young
chris Mar 2018
youth is like a never-ending maze

youth feels like being alone in the deep blue sea

youth can be overwhelming

but also

youth is fighting for what you believe in

youth is friendship

youth is freedom

you're my sun
one and only in this world
I bloom for you,
but you make me thirsty

           it's too late,
           too late

I can't live without you
even if I'm drying out,
I try harder to reach you

but it's no use,
it's a dream to be broken

i try to act cool
pretend like i can't feel
smilin' like a fool
can't believe she's real

her eyes
her cute little nose
her lips and her smile
it felt so good to get lost for a while

we laughed together
we cried together
we felt together
we ****** lived together

together we lived
but i was scared
didn't have enough to give
but thought no one cared

so i tried to

move on
play it off
almost forgot about it and for that i hate myself
what am i doing
why am i letting her slip
who is she seeing
why lately, she hasn't been the same
why do all our dreams seem to fade away
need to get my **** together
want us to last forever

so i

i called her
i met her
i talked and talked and kept talking
just kept saying ****, totally ignoring her

til' she grabbed me
then i calmed down
and now i could see
how much i was missing her warmth

Was happy for the moment, thought everything was fine, i explained myself, and now she's back

She slowly let go of me and it hit me as she whispered
"I don't love you anymore"

And i realised, i was late. Been around my homies too much, shouldn't have played it cool, should have shown my feelings, should have done this and that. Why am i the type of person who always talks that "should have", "could have", "would have" stuff. Please tell me Self, why are you like this. You're ruining my life, i ******* hate you. Piece of ****-

"It's over."

"Mhmmm hmm hmm"

Here I sit, at the fountain in the mall, with this soothing melody of an unknown voice whispering through my headphones, my backpack on, eating cup noodles and procrastinating on my studies; A mother with her approximately 5 year old child sits down in front of me.

From the back, she looks like she's twenty-something with a slim, fragile body and her hair cut short. Her son is holding onto her with his right hand and onto a balloon with his left. It seems like time stopped for the kid. He stares at the fountain with a fascinated glance in his eyes as the water rises high up, up to the second floor. The mother and her kid get up eventually after a few minutes. I look around.

Hundreds of people are rushing through the shops, satisfying themselves, drunk from materialism. Watching them feels like I'm watching a time lapse. They are running around, worrying about the future while I am trying to get lost in the moment.

A quote by Nietzsche pops up on a screen, that usually plays advertisements and catches my attention. It says that people are generally in a hurry because everyone is trying to escape themselves.

Hah! What an ironic situation this is.
Someone's shopping bag bumps into me and pulls me back to reality. I realize that the track that was playing through my headphones stopped long ago. It seems like it just kept going on in my head as i got lost. I sigh, get up and make my way home.

"Take me to another place", I mumble as I make my way through the crowds. I don't exactly know why I said that, what I meant and what or rather who should take me away from here. I just hope to, one day, find someone to escape reality with.

the bird I saw at the water park
that bird flew so freely
it seemed so happy to me
because it has wings that I don't have

it is able to go anywhere it wants to go
but that bird is very lonely,  
because it's flying after departing its mother

the bird I saw at the water park
the bird I saw at the playground
the bird I saw on the plane

the bird that was always alone, will fly
freely to find friends
it's not lonely anymore as it flies together

hey, bird bird bird bird

the bird that was always alone, will fly
freely to find friends
it's not lonely anymore as it flies together

wrapped your arms around

ode to starry starry night
chris Jan 2016
O'starry starry night,
watch the children laugh and play,
reaching up to touch the sky,
up above the world so high

O'starry starry night,
listen to the crickets sing,
sitting out on May hills,
watch the children pick daffodils

O'starry starry night,
follow the light of fireflies,
feel the cool breeze pass by,
breathe in the fresh air.
inspired by starry starry night by don mclean

wrote this for english class in 8th grade.

ive fallen for you laugh,
which is utterly contagious
i've fallen for your smile
which makes me giddy for
no reason at all. i've fallen for
our late night talks, when 1am
arrives far too quickly. i've fallen
for our jokes, which ill remember
days later and burst into laughter.
i've fallen for how you can make
my day better, even if i wanted
to cry a minute before. i've fallen
for every second i get to spend
with you, even if those seconds
will always leave me wanting more.

today until my fears
and doubts clouded
my mind and left me
in a dark room.

fears and doubts about
if i was going to be able
to graduate high school
or even go to college.

fears and doubts about
if i would find anyone
that would care for me.

fears and doubts that if
i was ever going to be

but i don't want to be perfect
but i don't want to be a failure
fears and doubts cloud
