I told you how I felt
but you turned the other cheek
I was basically rejected
I feel so small, so very weak

I found the reason why I always keep to myself
I hate this feeling of pain
Of being rejected like I'm not good enough
This will happen never again

I'm tired of letting people in
I'm tired of being alone
I'm tired of being rejected and hurt
This is it that feelings have gone

I'm not gonna let you in
I'm not gonna let you see my tears fall
I'm not gonna let you see me hurt
I'm not gonna let you bring me down most of all

I told you how I felt
Because I wanted you to know
But apparently, you would never feel the same
So I guess its time for me to go
I know what its like...to be rejected, dejected. Only my story's different. He said he liked me too, and then he forgot me, like I was nothing. Loves a royal pain. it makes you thinks of the good times you have shared with that person and the more you think about it the more you cry... Tears come as I pray; but needless, even if the whole world forsakes me, *** is still here with me, and that's all I'll ever need :") "He comforts us so we can comfort others", stay strong and press on everyone!

"I love you."
Those three words didn't mean a thing.
I thought we were meant to be,
But I guess it was just a fling.
There's a wall around my heart, stopping me from crying,
But there's something inside of me
That feels like it's dying.
You were everything I needed, cared for.
I chose you, but now my heart is sore.
You will never realize that you were my best friend too,
But believe me when I say this,
I really did love you.
It's been 2 long years, i thought then that we were meant for each other, but well he broke his promises, left me there to suffer. Even when he knew I was hurting badly, he chose to ignore me, chose another girl over me. We were 12. Well time really flies quickly, but thank *** for helping me get through the tough times. Press on everyone!

You made me feel like I was flying,
Like no matter who said what you would be there to pull me back into the clouds,
Like I was something special,
You were the first person to ever make me feel this way,
Then when I realized it was all just an illusion,
The fun ended and I hit the concrete with a cold, hard, awakening,
You left me stranded to die alone,
You left me there to cry myself to sleep at night,
It hurt so much to hear you say I was just a toy,
Something you could play with,
Someone who you wanted to wallow in your misery with you,
You ruined me,
I am no longer the girl with the bright eyes or beautiful smile,
I am now the girl drowning in her tears,
Who can barely breathe at the simple thought of what we had,
The girl who deep down, is slowly dying,
The worst thing is that you can never know,
You will forever more think of me as the girl you threw to the side and didn't hurt,
I am so much more that you can never see,
I will forever be, the girl you ruined...
Where to start...
this made me sad and emotional, I have a similar story only different on the part of being a rebound. I encourage you to keep going, forgiving is living and it makes life bearable. Pick yourself up and it won't be easy but get the closure you need writing is good do more venting to someone you feel close to and just as I have you will get over this in time. May we be strengthened and pray to be able to get through the trying times! :)

I said I wouldn't write about you
                                                            b­ut who am I
           to ***** myself of what makes me live
in art I've surfaced my own sins

                                                           ­                      and some of yours.
                                                          ­                                         I suppose

I've taken space you've asked of me
                                                     needing to blockmyface
                                                     ­                    whenyouonceplaced
           my name into your skin

in a quiet champagne trip and
indente­d ribs

                                          Take a sip.

If it's "poison" that touches your lips

                                  THEN you could've skipped
                                                         ­              dipped
                                                          ­             flipped   me onto the piles of rubbled                   glass
torn from your walls
placed carelessly cornered or left simply to fall
                                                            ­                                       switched in

some contorted reverse
                                            though my heart refuses to pin you as
     when these colors emerged

Two Years of swells i Chose to forget
                                                  each time that i stayed when I knew

i should've left.
When Everybody told me                      Better was Mine
                                       I wouldn't give in to believe that your heart was

From the moment I knew I'd clutched your stairway-ed arms
                 Ease My Ailing,
sweaty palms in driver-ed cars
Kermit Ruffins and philly beer bars
roller coasters, Christmas lights
                           endless pen-streamed journaled binds
An unopened book
                         pages still blank
                  more than a stitch to ease the pain of your name

   though i mustn't Complain
                                                        ­             ...and I still can't Rejoice

But I'll watch the sunrise through Uncommon windows
              trace folds of your fingers -- sweet struggled wake on your pillow
                            and dance foreign waltz in clipped black-wig nights
           plated sweet nourriture to watch your delight

Watch you dance decorated as I set in Pride
                                hold me to standards --yet bend when I'm Right

Speak to me softly in quiet teared nights
         tell me I'm beautiful when femininity cannot find
                                                            ­                                                 me
Drape me in curtains of love and Security
        Fit so Securely in the curves of my body

Smile in shyness--like absence of tongue
                as your cheeks lift to hide your eyes
                                                            ­                                  in thin rungs

Gold plates of your stomach and skin over hips
           saying my name through pleasurepursed lips
Pounding the pavement in carouseled times
not only Read, but Returned all my rhymes

The fortress is daunting
                     I'm brooding and swift
Sometimes the brick slips but the flips never Switch

So if russe folk dances and stealing lost tea
                     causes your coldness, just slightly, to bleed
                                       Remember what I did
                                                             ­                     --to, your troubles, ease
                               Don't say for this new year I didn't
Prioritize your Needs
                                       MARRY THEM, by all of all means
i never pushed you to choose, instead, me

I've learned my doors close,
       i woke to realize
                                             when those i thought open I faced and
                                                                ­  denied

because nothing matches the pulses and start
                  --the warmth in my chest when your palms
                                                                ­                                 press my heart

that's why with your Run i cannot understand
           feelings and highs
                                                           ­            unsustainable lands
I never demand     -       I never imply

                        but im also neverwrong
   and i can't shake  

                                                        ­                                         You and I.
CHRISTmas isn’t just about glittering decorations,
Or simply celebrating it as a tradition
It isn’t just about the delectable food and drinks,
Nor about the world, as many people think

CHRISTmas is about rejoicing in the birth of our wonderful Saviour-
Jesus Christ, who was sent down from heaven lovingly by the Father
It is about delighting with great joy because of the Father’s great love for us,
His greatest gift of eternal life, none other gifts can surpass!

CHRISTmas is about giving, and for showing that we care,
For honouring the Lord Jesus Christ, with the gifts of love we share
A frequent lesson we learn from the Bible is to give wholeheartedly to others who have less,
Our love for the Lord Jesus Christ, through the gifts, we want to express

This CHRISTmas, instead of simply decorating christmas trees,
Let the light of Jesus in us, be what others see
As we shop, give, fellowship and enjoy the CHRISTmas season,
Let us keep in mind the important truth- the Lord Jesus is the reason!
Merry Christmas!!!
*** gave each of us a special family
that we can call our own.
A family that loves us for who we are,
so we would never feel alone.

They may not like everything we do
or everything we say,
but the beautiful thing about "family"
is that they love us anyway.

Sometimes we feel rejected
by people who do not care,
but our hearts are warmed when remembering
that our family is always there!

So hug them a little more often,
for sometimes we hurt the ones we love.
And tell them how much you love them,
for they were sent to you from above.

Edited version :)
Some of us might be facing family problems, whether we don't feel loved, cared for, appreciated. However, I urge you to really reflect. communicate with them more, remember how they stood beside us through thick and thin. Let us rejoice, that our loving heavenly Father has blessed us with family, and all other things! ♡♡♡
Exams are finally over, I've been really inactive, but I hope that my poems can bring a smile to someone, make someone's day, or even encourage someone :) ♡

You'll be surprised to know how old i am HAHA
Let us press on! ♡♡♡
Teach me, Lord,
What I don't know.
Show me which way
And where to go.
Alone I stumble,
Alone I fall,
But your gentle voice
Leads through it all.
Take my hand,
Light my way,
Be my beacon
Night and day.
I am weak
And sometimes so low,
But you give me strength
And make me whole.
Teach me, Lord and Father.
Your child has become new.
Empty me of myself
So I can live for you

My End of Year Examinations are just around the corner, it's just 6 more days to it! I'm really anxious about not getting my As, not continuing to be top 3 in academics, disappointing my family members. However, I'm brought back to the word of ***:
Romans 8:37 "Yet in all these things, we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us"
I'm really blessed to have come to know the Lord, to learn from His word each week, to have ***'s people to pray for me, and on my part I'm seeking to develop my faith in Him as I read His word, to entrust everything to Him, trusting that He will help me in every aspect of my life. Grades take precedence in my life, but at the end of this exams, my goal is to get good grades, and a far greater thing-- to develop a personal relationship with *** :)
--So, for those struggling out there with all sorts of problems, I encourage you to seek ***, read His word and pray to Him, and one day He will change your lives in the most special, personal and extraordinary way :)
--on a side note, guess how old I am?
We’re a galaxy
Filled with stars
A real life fantasy
That’s what we are
Cosmos, planets, shooting stars
A beautiful world made just for us
Look deep within and you will see
There’s so much more in you and me

I’m your midnight and you’re my aurora
I’m the sea and you’re my coral
We’ll sail across the galaxy
And I’ll pick out the stars just for you
We’ll colour out the sunset
Make it a lovely pink hue
I’ll write your name in the sky
And we’ll bid the end goodbye.

Maybe together,
we’ll finally have forever

Sometimes, I like to imagine and picture the stars. They are always so beautiful, shining and twinkling above us. Many people say that love is vast and limitless and I agree. Love is also full of wonders and beauties like the galaxy. So everytime we feel sad, remind yourself that there are people who love you. People like your family.

Please tell me something,
and do not lie.
Is something fading
between you and I ?

I've noticed changes
in the recent past
and waited patiently,
hoping it wouldn't last.

I give everything
I can give you,
but what's given back
seems long overdue.

You say nothing is wrong
and you are just fine,
acting as if
the problem is mine.

Something is different,
not like it was before.
I'm doing my best,
trying to restore

The way we showed love
to one another
without crowding you
or trying to smother.

I just need to know
if one thing is true.
Do you still love me
as much as you used to?

Dealing with all sorts of problems, I know many of you here love poetry, to find comfort in poetry, to express the thoughts you can't seem to say it out because you find it cheesy or foolish? Maybe you just want to leave your thoughts here, out of your mind, staying anonymous hoping no one you know will find out your thoughts? Or are the inner side of yourselves, totally a world apart from your exterior selves? Regardless of all these, I hope you can find that hope in life, hope in ***, hope in yourselves. Maybe you can relate to these, I sincerely hope these can make you guys feel better :)
