A game,
Thats how it began.
I never suspected
One with your face
Would come
and ask to play.

Fools,
All of us
Staring unashamed,
Me specially
As I slowed time down
To watch you
Frame by frame.

My eyes kept looking,
My hands were shaking,
"What do I say?"
My heart was yelling.
I pretended I hurt my hand -
My first instict
Was to run away.

I never tell you how I felt,
And yet you knew it anyway.
I won't forget the day you came to me,
And told me you felt the same.

I purposefully walked away,
But you chased me,
You made me say
How I felt since that first day,
And now I wish
We had never met.

You lured me into your eyes
to drink my obsession,
With a little smile
i fall in temptation,
Here i am high of you,
Crying for your kisses,
Staggering to one side to the other,
Little by little
i forget my words,
From your eyes i melt
and your kisses sobers me.

It's like trying to run away from the moonlight
history without tragedy
sun without fire
it's inside me, I can feel it burning
and I never know if it will hurt or heal
but I keep running
trying to get to you
like a wolf at midnight
your love is what keeps me alive.

the trees seemed to peer over us, a story that could begin,
with their leaves falling like autumn
in a country where there was no fall
the wind seemed to give me a little nudge—
in between our laughter i could have told you
i wanted to hold your hand
right when yours brushed mine
i could have asked you to tell me
if you had gotten home safely that night
right there and then i could have told you
that at night i pray for you,
that i always wish we had more time.

i was your blue skyline
and you
were my purple sunrise.

there are stars above me
and, my god, they shine
like nothing ever changed.

(but they’re not as bright as the
stars i saw in your eyes
or as the stars you put in mine)

i miss you more than the moon misses
the sun,
you were my sun
and i could not shine without you.

i’m not so bright anymore.
do you still adore
me?
do you still adore
do you still
do you

do you?

When I look at you
I see many stars
pretty liny lights;

and I fear that
when you stare at me
there is only an empty sky.

When she cries
it's like shooting stars fly
right across the sky
and a piece of me die
because I just wanted
to see her smile.

Art

She was art
the kind of art
when seen with the heart
become easy to realise
it's actually
a masterpiece.

Please fix me
I'm desperate
Pleading
Grasping to you but not breathing
How are you dead with your heart still beating
Something deep within you
Gnawing
Eating
Watching as you wither and your mind turns needy
Honestly I'm greedy
Wanting to give unconditional love to someone who will always love and need me
I wanna be the thought in their mind
Staying there
Never leaving
The load I carry is heavy
Never knew my mind could be so empty
The scary part is when I look in the mirror I don't realize that's me
Don't wanna be a name in a graveyard
Depression is so scary
Suicide takes too many
Victims rest easy
I know you didn't know me and I know you didn't "need" me
But when any kid dies at their own hands it leaves me grieving
So much pain
I feel it trying to kill me
But I won't let it
I'm too busy trying to fix me

i remember a dream i had
when you and i were still together
it was the one where you held me against you
and twirled my hair around your finger
and whispered sweet nothings into my waiting ears
and promised me you'd never hurt me

but i also remember waking up
alone, in your cold bedroom
you were already gone
and i could feel the bruises on my neck
in the shapes of your fingers
and i remember being terrified to get out of your bed
because you were pissed at me for no reason at all
and you were in the kitchen
waiting for me.

i'm a new poet and i'm kind of exploring i guess, so apologies if this doesn't make sense. it's meant to be about abuse
