i want to
take my slow time
down and down your pale chest,
kissing every birthmark,
every part of you,
every so slowly as you shiver under
my soft touches.
i want to trail my cool fingers from ur lips
and grip you close to me
as the blood rushes to every piece of you i touch.
i want to make you mine.
by bruno mars
a chasm deep in my chest
when i heard you moved on.
that you have a new ******* your arm now
that she has glasses, is short-- kinda
kinda reminds me of me
she reminds you of me,
but thinking of you holding her in your arms the way you used to,
her fingers trailing your collarbone the way i did,
laying kisses down on it as if she was walking down the line
the way i used to...
you, stealing her away from a quick embrace in a dark corner, a long, passionate and forbidden kiss masked by the darkness and away from the bleary lights
will you love her the way you never did me?
my collection of sweaters keeps growing
each filled with adoration from ex-lovers
the way the cheap polyester would rub against
my bare skin
somehow reminding them that i
They forgot that I favor another sweater more--
that I wore it first,
that I am comfortable in my very own
that I don't need their flimsy synthetics
to keep me warm on a cold and lonely night.
**** i give all the sweaters to my brother
she will be loved

Please don't let us
It'd hurt too much--
I've bared my soul out for you,
my whole heart is in those deep pockets of yours
the ones I always loved so much.
It's been so long since someone has been able to
hold my heart
oh so tenderly
the way you do.
Don't squeeze it, drop it,
Sorry! I have a no refund or exchange policy :)
It's starting again-- this is how it always
We get too busy,
I have things to do,
you have things to do,
it's all the same, it's okay.
Suddenly, I'm too far away,
it's too much of a hassle now,
and we won't have much time.
Next thing you know, days become
and weeks become
even though we were the greatest,
we have faded and
there is no we.
When we love someone,
we'll do crazy things,
even hurt yourself
if it means they'll prosper.
Maybe it was me,
that I was too late in fixing our problems.
Maybe it was me,
that I didn't know how to love myself
to fix myself,
before I could ever hope of loving you.
Maybe it was you too.
Maybe it was you,
in your stressed out ways,
your lack of time,
and your incompetence.
...Maybe it was you too.
Not just me.
never gonna give you up
by the black keys
Back and forth it keeps going
the silence just stretches on
none the wiser to start talking
no one wanting too
everyone too scared
both too angry
I miss you.
i dont understand why i feel the way i do
why at a certain word,
or a certain picture
my heart will seize in my chest
hold my organs in,
only to go forth
and shake and tremble
and perpetually ache
like an old sore not healed
i wonder why i can't stop
digging graves for myself
despite being in a state of bliss
why when theres nothing wrong
i always expect the worst to be right around the corner
and instead of waiting for the worst to come
i make the worst
i guess i was never really patient in the first place
by bruno major
Its been awhile
since the last words that left my pen
really meant something.
I study science to help me understand the world better,
Im just getting more and more confused the more I learn.
When will I learn
why I feel these irrational voids
of pitch-black anger and this
agony that eats me away, little by little?
--from the undertale ost
With a flourish,
It was gone.
The warm beating heart
slipped out of the slashed chest,
still simmering and bleeding,
and he held it in his palm.
With every beat,
it slowly withered and flustered,
unaccustomed to this
and whimpered as it saw its lifeline,
its blood dripping down, down
down to the ground and as it left its corpse,
as the life slowly slip away from the body it left behind,
and nothing but
flesh and bone
hopes and dreams
tears and smiles
were left behind.
He gingerly kissed it.
Gave it a little rub.
Put it to his ear.
Heard it call out to its rightful owner.
Then put it in his pocket.
He walked away.
Keep your heart safe guys, keep it well and where it belongs-- with you.
by arctic monkeys
You were a sight for sore eyes,
they way you walked up
that pure smile
and that laugh
god I could never get enough of it--
But I guess,
maybe that was it.
I could never get enough of you.
And when you got enough of me?
You easily let me go.
Yikes why is this always the issue for me holy moly
by bon iver
Like a moth to flame,
they'll all come to me eventually.
They'll saunter over,
lackadaisical smile and all,
offer me a word or two,
light the spark in me,
and before they know it--
they have a flame.
But the closer they get,
no matter how beautiful,
no matter the glistening
dancing crimson that was smattered before them
they would never be able to get too close.
Nor could I.
I'd burn them
with a touch, with a smile, with anything more
than mere warmth.
I'd burn through it all.
Their hearts, their charm, their love.
And it seemed, I
burnt my joy while at it too.
Feeling pretty bad ngl
by the script
I am in a circle of agony.
As I venture out, I am forever drawn into the center,
centrifugal forces area lie--
I can never seem to flee, but I am rather so attracted
to that pinpoint of melancholy
that seems to resonate with me
too much to be healthy,
too much to make sense.
As I look back at our mess,
the storm we created,
the whirlwind of excitement
and pain and hurt and toxicity
(but the love was there)
all I see now are a mumble of black and red,
the words mixed and blurred,
the meaning nixed.
It is in this chaos,
I feel safe.
oops im v v much in my bag
You were so fleeting,
I couldn't get enough of you ever.
I ate you up,
swallowed you whole,
and when you had enough,
all that taking and taking
never able to give you enough
you were done.
i miss you
by childish gambino
Today I stood
as the smoke wafted up into the air
away and away
and all I could think of was
how much it hurt to see
something so bad for you
drifting away slowly
yet I want that high
I miss that high you gave me...
up and up
nothing seems right
the colors don't fit the tone
the melody doesn't fit the song
everything is spinning out and out
no end to it
no end to the constant pain
that sneaks into every little crevice it can find
and if there are no more
it'll crack and break you open
like a ******* pistachio
and seep through
ooze into every part of you
until you are nothing more than a corpse
filled with gooey black
mess and sorrow and agony and pain
oh the pain it never goes away
it shows too much
you can never keep it inside
it'll always find a way to dissipate
so prideful, tell them all that
you've been able to consume another victim
able to corrode away the inside and make it
it's new home.
That's all it ever wanted anyways.
isn't that all we ever want?
I've been trying to pull everything apart
the echo of your steps down the lonesome corridor
the soft touch of your fingers as they twirl my hair
the soft voice you used to sing in
the scent of you on my clothes
every memory in every place
everything leads to you
but no matter how hard I pull and pull
every memory comes snapping back
every time I come so close to pulling you all out
all the kisses and hugs
all the scents and sounds and sorrow
can't seem to go away
You've haunted me,
left me to wail and cry
to no end
there's nothing I can do
nothing that will ease my pain
color confused by jaymay
thought it was supposed to be good to look back
blast from the past
and maybe it is
a good thing to do to look back
and remember everything
and improve as they say
but is it really o worth it
when looking back just
hurts and hurts and hurts
and aches and leaves you shaking
at 2am unable to stop crying and remembering
oh god oh god
i remember it now
all the things that i had worked so hard to make disappear
are chasing me now
so is it really so worth it?
to try to learn and do better
but to only end up never being able to even get past it?
by lana del rey
she came onto the car today
head bowed, shoulders hunched
holding what looked like the world for her
as everyone looked away and barred themselves
for things they were too busy to hear,
too insignificant for their time
with a deep breath
slowly gaining strength and power through her words
showing the words out of her mouth on to
the bare ***** subway floor
spreading them almost like a disease bring for sustenance
because thats what everyone thought she was
a parasite, a mere annoyance
so when she spoke of repent
and saving i listened as she bore her eyes through me
and looked into me
and spoke of the things to be wary of
as i cast my eyes down and looked away
bear your sins,
be free of their binding
escape their cage, their imprisonment
and be free
I'm an excellent seamstress--
I can mend anything, rip seams out of everything
But who will fix me?
by tom odell
And the neon signs burst
and the crowd roared
as the city car alive
and dreams were made real,
no reckless abandon
but the ones that turned
do it, try it
I can't write poems
that sound like music floating
through the wind
the way you do
but I can try
and veil my words
with your magic
into the woods
we rode our horses
into the woods we went
and further down the road
a little troll we met
he told us how things would end
how the end was drawing near
we turned our heads
and went on our way
for nothing could make us hear
the tales of danger behold
of the realm we were to go
we ignored and continued
where no one else would go
and so here we are
in the realm of tales
that no one dared go
and here we are
together we are
we shall go
idk like the rhythm to this
no song, just the steady 1, 2 rhythm to this
With every whisper,
a smile ending the sentence.

Things have changed,
But for the better my dear.
We have learned from our mistakes,
Promised to change and the
Blossoms with possibility and promise.
I'm so excited to see where we will go.
By girls generation
Those lost to the winds of time
bring me small smiles
little curls of warmth
tendrils of pain accelerating throughout
my body as I stare at the pictures
remembering those I have lost.
Somehow it doesn't feel right
to just move on
and not try to contact them again.
It doesn't feel right
to be such a big part of your life
only for them to disappear--
so here's to the one's lost!
To the ones to have slashed my heart to bits,
to the one to have healed my heart only to leave,
to the one to inject it with poison.
Here's to all of you,
the one's I have lost.
poison and wine
by the civil wars
was going through old emails and found some old emails between me and some old friends, some lost to me in Song, some crystallized in Amber. I miss you guys.
You know all those songs you introduced me to?
All those songs we used to listen to together?
I still listen to them today
Even though you're long gone and I'm still stuck in the quicksand of our love.
It hurts, but it's okay.
The memories flood back to me and
I welcome them all wholeheartedly.
For it reminds me of better days
Where the blue from the oceans stood out more
The crimson hues of the sunsets painting your very being
Where your onyx eyes bore far away
Past me and our galaxies.
And I always asked you, 'what do you see?'
And although you never really told me I still thought it was perfect for it was so worthy of your attention.
Now that that's all over and you've blown yourself away like the sand on the rocks
I can't help but wonder though.
Amidst the waves you sailed away from me by
During the thunderstorms you know I sent you
Did you ever look back to me
It may seem selfish but I really hope so.
Nothing seems right
It's not supposed to make sense
But somehow it all fits together
The hurt the agony
But yet all that love and smiles--
Twirling in this sea of words
As the rain crashes down and with each raindrop
A gunshot of words
Fired right for me
Piercing me through and through
Yet somehow we're still standing
By the wombats
ne pensez pas de moi
j'ai besoin d'oublier
même si c'est juste pour une minute
i dunno guys - LB
I don't want the false claims
Only for you to forget and go on
Because ******* you promised me
And I need you now
As I lie in bed
Crying to sleep,
How you told me you wouldn't
Be the cause to my pain
But here we are
And all I need,
Even as I lie here in the everlasting bottomless pit of melancholy
Is your arms.
Even though I want to hurt you so bad
Make you feel my pain...
I just want you to hold me.
Tell me it'll be alright.
That you've changed.
Guess something never change, huh?
I'm a mess oops I'm gonna write whatever
It's too late for anything now
To patch it all up
Make sure every one is happy
It's just too late
I'm too far gone to be saved and I don't know if I want to be saved.
It's been awhile hoping to post more often now but idk man
Get well soon
By gnash, Liphemra
It's been awhile since I've last saw your scarred face,
those pockmarks etched across your skin
as you leered at me with those
hungry, greedy eyes.
It's been awhile since your words have affected me,
how they used to whisper in my ears
about all those little imperfections that scatter across my body like rainclouds on a sunny day-
But not everyone seems to hate rain.
C: glad he locked away this little monster of mine
Sur ma route
by black m
Let all the hustle and bustle swirl around
around me in a dizzying frenzy
I fall into your arms, those strong arms
holding me up tough and tall
reminding me how to stand up
To be brave to the world and all
of its ammunition fired at me.

The thing is-
I can't stand liars,
that take advantage of the trust
that we have given to them-
free of charge!
and throws it out
like it means nothing
and watches as we continue to smile,
though forced now,
and through gritted teeth
we tell you how much we love and appreciate you.
just tell the truth.
Even if you just "don't want us to worry,"
the thoughts that swirl our mind
are worse than
any truth that you could bring.
baby don't lie
by gwen stefani
No matter what,
even if I can't stand anything right now,
you always make me smile.
by ikimono gakari
It's only getting worse and worse
this longing I have for you
that pulls at my heart
and stretches it wide and across
far enough that my heart
oh my stupid heart
it's on the floor now and being dragged across the floor
and straight into your open palms.
Ach I miss him but this is new this is a new kind of longing and I dont know what to call it or what it is but it hurts
The sky was gray,
the kind of overcast that took over
not only the sky
but took your mind with it,
Pouring all of its tears
into all your thoughts,
Drenching them and washing them all away.
The steady pitter patter of the rain
drummed away all the swirling mania that danced across my head,
the soft jazz settling into my head
and finally bringing me to rest.
I love the rain and dark days, especially with a hot cup of tea and a warm sweater and soft jazz playing.

Things have gotten better
all the shadows disappeared,
despite all the light.
Maybe im just staring too hard into the light,
but i cant see the demons that often anymore
unless I seek them out.
Things are changing
Dont really wanna bother with grammar and all that cuz that will require me to read it over and if I do I will probably delete all of it xD
Another one bites the dust
The thing is
its not that you left
I dont mind that you've gone to go find yourself
to explore things you've never seen
to escape this hellhole
Its that you didn't take me with you
Pour mon pere
House of memories
by panic! At the disco
It was dark
and I wasnt alone.
I could hear your gentle breath,
In and out of your mouth,
those soft lips perfectly puckered
and your breath finally steady.
You were asleep.
You were finally seemingly at peace,
your mind wasnt running around
worrying about how to pay the bills
worrying about me,
you were finally sleeping and dreaming
and in bliss.
It was almost as if I was a wild thing
uncontrollable, angry, bitter
I was the epitome of madness
the center of sadness
But you came around
And I guess maybe you liked how
I was simply mad,
an absolute creep
and you stuck around
and unearthed the me
that hid inside all along,
scared to show itself to the world
scared of how the world would think of it
scared of the hurt bound to come
scared of everything
But you coaxed me out of my shell
so to speak
and now here we are.
as I stand with a smile on my face,
Know that its because of you,
that I smile because of you,
that I laugh because of you.
I am brave because of you.
It all seems to lead back to you,
you changed my world and the best I could hope for us that I changed yours too.
by yeah yeah yeahs
its been awhile. Things have changed
things arent the same as they were
just only a few months ago
when I was staggering and stumbling
trying to figure my way through
I've finally found myself
found the things ive been looking for all along
to feel loved to be loved
to find friends and family amongst thieves and beggars
Ive really hit the gold guys
and im so thankful for all of hellopoetry because you guys all helped me
through my toughest days
and supported me throughout.
it was here that I met my best friends
and my boyfriend,
it was here that I got to meet amazing people and amazing works.
I am grateful.
Sorry this is so random and I didnt bother with grammar and punctuation and whatnot I just needed to get this out and for me it sounded better without all the markings
Anyways its been awhile, sorry I disappeared >< I lost the ways of writing and ive only just begun to write again, so forgive me as I get back on the horse so to speak
Just wanted to thank you guys for everything because hp was so important to me and still is. Thanks guys for everything ♥
**** me up
The snowflakes came down,
whirling around, pushed around
trying to find their way home.
The night was cold,
the type of cold that snuck under all your coats and hats and scarves
and carved you out little by little,
seeping into your bones.
But as he stood there, amidst
All the fury of the winds,
the mischevious tickles of the playful snow,
All he felt was warmth,
and he smiled.
Everywhere I go (kings and queens)

Ah I can't write its really bad
by troye sivan
An uproar around the station
filled the air,
plummeting all the death that stank the room,
and killed all that had seem to
be ****** and murderous all before.
The smiles that broke onto their faces,
and the shattering applause that
Enveloped the room
only further heightened the joy that seemed to permeate the room,
striking all the sorrows at heart
with nothing but a simple smile.
So smile, u never know what it could do.
Idk kinda all over havent been writing much.
There was a death in the room.
Everyone in the room lay still and silent,
Heavy with and unknown weight
That sagged and sunk.
All was eerily quiet,
Not a sound to be heard.
He had arrived and he brought life,
Miracles and spectacles to behold,
And there was glory!
Oh such glory!
Everything sprung to the occasion,
And suddenly the room was alive
And vibrant and bursting and oh so happy, for he had arrived.
Ahhhhh sorry for the lack of activity I've just been so busy and I've lost my writing spark tbh
Tired rn so I thought I'd give this a go
The thing with you is that
you occupy my mind
like a squatter-
There all the time and never leaving.
It makes me happy.
You've made yourself at home in
that small little cottage up there,
Filled it with warmth and music,
food and love.
And at night?
All we do is dance the night away
Dance the pain away

We were nothing but children trying
to find our way in the world
Clambering our way over corpses
and clinging onto sweet nothings
until we found each other
and grew to be
Do you wanna get high?
**** them with kindness, they say.
so here we go.
Here we are.
Me and him and you.
The one who once promised me
that whoever got him would
be at peace with the other.
The one who wants him to be happy,
the one that promised me they would
stay away and let us be.
Yet keeps coming back.
Thank you for making us stronger.
Making us realize what we mean to each other,
and how we won't let some desperate
get in the way.
Thank you for hurting me,
and for being so cruel and unrelenting,
Thank you for trying to split us apart.
You've only made us stronger.
So, jokes on you.
You probably cant see this anyways. Blocking is a magical thing, you know?
funny how things work out. I remember how earnest you were at first and how I so wanted you to be my friend, how you seemed so cool and how I looked up to you.
hah. And yet here we are.
... you promised you would stop and you would support us. Guess ur too selfish to do so. So back the *******, will ya? Thanks, honey. Hes mine.
