A capsule for your mind
To rediscover in time
When you come back down




Somewhere they can't find you
In case you ever forget
Here's something to always remind you



You are loved
You are precious
And in time you will learn to love
Your own body and mind

Take a walk
Go outside
If you are ever stuck in a loop
Don't be afraid to take chances, okay?
Promise me that

I trust you


Now go
You can do it!
Bryce 2d
When i was a little boy
and my booties could fit within
a small couplet of square metal
to which I had been given

I did not question, I did not complain
I existed the sights and smells of simple place

I licked the mist that watered plants
Crushed coffee beans in the employee
lounge
for they laughed at such a little boy.

It was 2002
and America was still somewhat free
When movie theaters had plastic seats
Empty exits
Then I sat the edge on watching Pokemon

Living in an electronic simulation
Taming, Creating monsters in my spare time
Travelling the tri-valley
Commute of a thousand years

Today,

It only takes minutes
And my soul drips strange when I see the house
Devoid of lavender,
Cut of oak tree

The park that once held the promise of a century
Diminished into brief obscurity
As new developments
Shaped like matchbox
destroy the grass
And raise land prices
To end the american dream

Paved roads that sang of free
take their toll
now I cannot see why this could be

What interest could there be
To paint our chided memory
Out of mind, out of sight?

Now the place I bought grilled cheese
Dipped in sharp tang of pickle juice

Bought and sold to an optometrist
To continue questioning the vision
of our adults
White,
This white tunnel
That, without an ending
Seems to Finish
Before I can see what’s on the other side
I trip,
I tripped like I haven’t before,
Heaven seems unreal
But there it was,
And here I was,
Grasping the smoke my body left
Like, those old cartoons that tried to be funny
But weren’t,
That’s how I felt,
I felt like I was being pranked,
While I grasp the white mist
I seem to miss the signs
I wasn’t meant to be there,
I’m not an angel,
And here I am falling at this weird angle,
Darkness overcame,
And this weird smell seemed faint,
Petrified towers filled the view
But it seems to miss my point,
How on queue that boat was,
A strange robed man rode me to the other side
Souls damped the boat,
Roaring and kicking to get out,
The man put up his, Almost Skeleton Arm,
And pointed me towards the castle,
Without a hassle I ran,
I tried to escape this hell,
That well,
Seemed to be scarce of you,
I know you are in heaven,
I know it will be worth it,
A cloud will be our bed,
The stars will be our ceiling
My love will not be dealing with this anymore
And I will not be sealing my feelings for you no more,
Neither heaven nor hell
Will stop me.

While I tried to run,
Something overpowered me
And bend me to my knees
Tears came down my Cheek
Because I knew this will be my faith,
Nothing will change
And I will not escape
This torment in hell
I got for free
And,
I will not see you again
My love,
But the thought of you
Let’s me pass through this

But the thought of you

It’s a worse torment,
Than what this unescapable hell can bring
To me.
Just you and I on this Charm rooftop.
The bass from the party make the ceiling rock.
We hand in hand got my stomach in knots.
The soul of the city’s in the backdrop.
Cool autumn night but damn it’s hot.
Dreaming of the world beyond these blocks.
You claiming this time you just can’t be stopped.
Why you wanna escape so bad?
I remember summer ‘01 when you tried to run.
Summer ‘02 all those plans fell through.
Summer ‘03 you came back to me,
Saying “The longer I stay the more I struggle to breathe.”
Maybe it’s the lights, they not bright enough.
Feelin’ like you locked down, got you handcuffed.
Try to prove to everyone you’re tough.
Girl I know you so exhausted and you fed up.

Midnight eyes staring right at me.
Asking so softly “What do you see?”
The words are there and yet I freeze.
Still hand in hand so tighter I squeeze.
Gazing out at the concrete trees
While your mind’s racing from the possibilities.
I can’t promise your dreams or give guarantees
But you’ll always be safe on this roof with me.

Well my mind is a blur
And my hearts full of pain,
So let's drink to the moon
And shout poems to the sky.
Here I am
Trapped in here
This mental prison
Feel so alone
No one understands
No one sees
Why can’t they
How do I
Escape this place
I just want
To be understood
But I’m alone
It’s just me
Is anyone real
Diana Caragea May 17
This is my beginning.
Everything I would dare say
Will be silenced by carnadine walls;
Can anyone hear my calling?
Departed screams and broken chords.
I don't have a voice; in no wise
I'm, not given a choice.
They all think is ''how beautiful
This creature can chirp, she sings!''
Cages capture my whispers
Time is still, a strange desire
Makes me want to run away;
But I stay.
Why do I have wings to fly
Painted solemnly in white
With black spots, here and there
If I cannot be out there
A hazard of feathers is everywhere;
Let me out.

I continuously prayed, for the day when
The gates would open from this hell
Do I truly want to know
If someone will ever let me be?
The air is suffocating; in sawdust,
I hide beneath.
Oh, but I want, how much, I dare say
To spread my wings in the air.
The window pane is close to me
Savor the sight as I still can
Here I have somewhere to be;
Do I dare to dream of leaving?
How delightful it would be, that I,
Someday, will touch the sky
It might not seem right
This feeling that tightens my heart
But today is the day, I know;
My prayers will be listened.

This is my struggle.
The cage was opened by a peculiar force
Invisible to the eye, strong to the touch
It let me out, it made me believe
In miracles once again,
How happy I can be!
I'm going to touch the sky
My wish is to become one
With all those beautiful stars
That appear at night but dissappear
With no trace, when the cruel Sun arrives
I shall like to speak with Him, about this matter.
I swear, without a second thought
I opened my wings.
Moving in circles against the wind
Everything was very splendid.
Going out that grotesque window,
Very far, between soft clouds
Right into the Sun; goodbye.

This is the end.
Icarus would be so proud
Of this little, beautiful bird
Oh, she really didn't know
When to stop or how to land,
Couldn't face the Sun, He was too bright
Poor her, tiny and weak legs
Does one know what happened next?
Died for her cause, to become a star.
Perhaps she did, you can see her in the night
Flying, slowly touched by the moonlight.
Sometimes freedom is an illusion.
Ana Sophia May 14
you tell me that I should fear the world
but I can’t
just don’t want to,
I’ve feared absolutely everything,
even my own shadow,
my whole life
and that hasn’t led anywhere.
Fears paralyses us,
and I’m sick of living paralysed,
stuck here.
I watch you slaved from your fears
and I really really really don’t wanna be like that.

There’s beauty out there, you know?
I grew up, you know?
You want me to be under your roof
but that feels too cold
and I really don’t wanna be alone.
I wish you just wished to see me happy
but that never felt like enough for you.
Ana Sophia May 14
Now, when you realize I'm about to leave,
you accuse me of rush.
You make me feel selfish again
just for wanting to live my own life.

I'm not your priority.
Never was.
And I understand.
They really do need you
more than I do,
but it's still unfair.

You cannot expect me
to stay by your side forever,
in the middle of this mess,
begging for attention.
I'll still be your friend.
I'll still want to tell you
about every thing
that I see and learn.
I'll still be your sense
when you lose yours.
But, I'm sorry
I can't stay trapped here anymore.
