Hiding the hurt, hiding the pain,
Hiding the tears that fall like rain.
Saying I'm fine when I'm anything but.
This ache in my soul rips at my gut.
My skin is on fire; I burn from within.
The calm on my face is an ongoing sin.
The world must stay out; I've built up a wall.
My fragile lie will collapse should it ever fall.
Loneliness consumes me; it eats away the years
Until my life is swallowed by unending fears.
Waiting for someone to see I wear a mask
And care enough to remove it; is that too much to ask?
Lemonhead Mar 8
The color of my iris
The apple of my eye is
Lying beneath eyelids
Time is flying by and I'm in
The midst of two wrists, two slits
Eyes open hoping we can do this
Love awakened by her two lips
Smell the roses poking out of tulips
Whispers are red, kisses are blue
Give me a purple heart and I'll stay true to you
A stack of poems for someone who, as it turns out, doesn't want them. Such is life.
Lemonhead Mar 8
I can see the sun through the rain on the window pane
My heart matched pitch with the pitter-patter
I've been a bitter, badder, bigger wolf howling
Pining for your silver lining, an end to this curse
Pursed lips like a hearse this death is a rebirth
A new man shedding skin from your medicine
Was hesitant, getting in my head again
But I found peace of mind in the piece of time
I spend in your company, even just a minute
Not picky about the ticking if it's clicking with us
Your laughter reminds me of happily ever after
Never believed in fairy tales until I saw you smile
Silly Cinderella kid tip-toeing, trying to fit a slipper
A feat I will fulfill if given a chance, all I need is your hand
Fingers intertwined with mine and I'll prove that I can
A stack of poems for someone who, as it turns out, doesn't want them. Such is life.

DRAMATIC POEM
Spooky Babe May 2017
Minutes feel like hours
And hours feel like days
I forgot you had this power
To make me fall for your gaze

The second that we're apart
My smile instantly fades
There's an emptiness in my heart
And I grieve for several days

But then I finally see you
And I'm back where I belong
I love to watch the things you do
Like when you mix all your songs

You are truly my comfort zone
You take my heart to new heights
I forget the feeling of being alone
Because you are the love of my life

In the past 4 months I've built myself a life where I could survive in a world without you. On technicality you get to say I left you. Did you ever once think about what could've been, had you just fought for me? Instead you went straight to bed with as many girls as you could.
No, I shouldn't hold that against you. We were done. We were over. But ******* it you can't beg for me back now!?
I kiss you and I wonder how many girls have been here since the last time I was.
You hold me and tell me you love me and I can't help but accuse you of saying that to everyone else.
"I need you." Well ****, where were you when I needed you!?

I feel as if,
as if,
you left me
yesterday.
you were to little
to go.
you didn't have a
choice.
but everyday
new anger builds up in me
because
of your
death.
you are completely
and utterly
gone.

every inch of this town holds a memory I don't want to remember.
every single ******* memory was with you.
we danced in my front yard
went swimming in the lake
ran through the forests together
walked all around our neighbor hoods
I talk about you like you were my lover
but you were more than that
you were my best friend
we spent every waking moment together that we could
you lived only a walk away
and now you hate me
you hate me because I ruin everything I touch
every friendship I have rots to ****
I want you back in my life but you won't have me
come back
please
come back
she was solely my best friend, and now we're nothing

— The End —
