Collecting dust,
I will sit here on this shelf,
Never to be taken down.
amber Jul 2018
thrashing my head,
against the edge of my desk,
the pain no longer helps.
it only reminds me,
that my great stupidity,
has no credibility.

I see my eyes in the mirror,
But they do not seem,
To belong to me.
They are empty,
Of a different essence.

Straining,
Attempting to find a glimpse,
Of familiarity.
Without success,
My anger boils.
Starting at the bottom of my stomach,
And pouring out my ears and mouth.

A loud bang is followed by clanging.
Glass falls around my feet,
Blood flows from my hand,
Hanging beside me.
The mirror is broken,
And displays me more accurately,
Than ever.
The Noose Mar 2018
Halation stretched
As the sun melted into bone
The sound of waves
Murmuring in the distance
Where like whispers
Falling on ears eager
For reassurance
Soothing, forgiving
Mending the very fabric of existence
Once shredded
Beyond repair

Mother nature had just
Birthed Spring
Along with the rudiments
Of designing a new
Dawn

My dream is to smile again
I want to gi e a smile to myself
I'm tired of gi ing a smile to others
I'm tired of ʰᶦᵈᶦⁿᵍ behind my f̶̓̅a̷͗̄k̸̀͐e̷͆͘ smile
Someone please gi e me smile
Please bring back my smile

I beg you.
no, my keyboard didn't broke. I purposely omitted "v" letter because it looks like a smile. Also "fake" part is glitched, its up to you to read it or not.

I remember my school days
When I would sleep late
And wake up early,
Chug my first of four Monsters,
And be completely fine,
Set aside a small headache
Thats become a part of my routine.

I would do whatever I felt like
During my favorite time of day,
The nightime hours,
Be it games or anime or poetry,
And when I woke up it was
School or more games on the weekends.

When I turned eighteen
I flew to MCRD San Diego
As a Marine Corps Recruit,
****** a few Drill Instructors off,
Laughed at their insults,
And enjoyed a four day bus trip home.
That took me all of august.

Two months of nothing later,
******* money from my family,
Dreaming meloncholy dreams
That'll never amount to anything,
And I'm staying up until three A.M.
Playing World of Warcraft
Because I need that monk
To be level seventy yesterday.

Then I'm sleeping until ten AM
But rising at noon,
Ready with a peculiar
Yet familiar headache
To level a character I wish I was;
Because its impossible to find work
And because there's nothing I hate more
Than laziness, depression, and myself.
I found this poem to be pretty **** good, so, exactlyish one year later, I made revisions. I mean, none of my poems are final, part of why I post them is for suggestions, not that I expect any.

it’s 9:30pm on a
chilly autumn night
i step into the
passengers seat
of your car as you
start the engine

music blaring from
the speakers as the
thundering bass
vibrates through
the entire car
i couldn’t get a word
out because it was so loud

we stop at a red light
I turn to look at you
as the red light
hits your face
i wanted to take a picture
it looked so aesthetically
pleasing with your side profile
as the red light shined in your face
making your face bright red like
the blush on my face when people
ask me about you

your grip on the steering
is so strong that i can see
your veins popping out
you look so focused
when you drive
it’s ****
with only one hand
on the wheel
the other i wish
was gripping my thigh

late night drives
with you are
my favorite

- night drives
made it a little longer and detailed :)

My sweet, softly.
Softly my sweet
As I walk into the night –
Is that fear that furrows your brow my love?

I reach -
But I dare not feel the slick of your skin;
Watch the torments torture your heart.
I will go softly my sweet, my dearest,
Into the darkness and –
Oh, so softly my sweet.

Do not speak precious words to me now, –
Harsh words – not as I go into the dark;
But please, do wipe the sweat from your brow,
And move not your lips and be silent.

My dearest, I have made my oaths to you
And yet, you say no.  
You still say no – you are not to.
So why is it you still ....

Oh Gods!
My love, do not touch me like such
With heartening words and calloused fingertips.
I beg of you, Cease! Or I will be forced to stay;
I beg of you, Please! Do not make me bear
The sorrowful words that proceed from your lips.

Just let me go softly my dearest,
My sweet.
My sweet, let me go softly.

This was my first poem published to this site. For the most part is has not changed, but I have added a few things along with adding to the title.
Is the one that is passed truly the one that treads in the Darkness?

Remembering the songs
I hummed as a small child
Remembering the innocence
Of my mind as a small child
Remembering the joy
Imbedded into my heart as a small child
Remembering the love
I believed in as a small child
Remembering the stories
That took me away as a small child
Remembering everything
That I was as a small child
Reminds me of everything
That I'm not as a young woman.

I revised this poem after I got some feedback from a wonderful young lady named Hannah who runs a blog called "2B or Not 2B: Creative Writing Tips and Tricks. Please check it out, it really is a wonderful blog. (P.s. I won this month's poetry contest with this revised version of "Remembering"!)
