U T G 2d
Almost 9 months you’ve been around
I still remember
The first time I saw you
How intensely we gazed into each other’s eyes
Oh my!
It was alchemy

Fall it was
When leaves softly, effortlessly fell
When I so fell for you

Away we both were from home
Yet as we stared in each other’s soul
Something clicked
You felt like Home!
My heart whispered, He is Home!

I have to concede
Around you, I feel both joy and melancholy
Never knowing why
I refuse to deny

In a grey zone I lay
In hope I pray
For you to stay

Time is flying
Time is slipping
Feelings ain’t dying despite countless trying

Words run short and do not seem to fit
Still, I want you to know
If it’s not you, then it’s nobody else!

Chapter 18 is coming to a close soon
And with it comes
The beginning of the next
Featuring a new setting
New characters
And new potential for growth

When I think of the novel of my life
And how short a story it could have been
And how the main characters
Have changed over the years
I always end up
Back in study hall
During lonely chapters 15 and 16
And think of how
The only thing I studied
In that hour and a half every week
Was a dark hallway in my mind
Where each door I opened
Lining the walls on either side
Held the darkest thoughts of my life
Thoughts of how I could end it
All too soon
My study hall was filled with studying
All the ways I wished I could just stop breathing
And when I look back on it now
All I think of
Is how the one person who was there for me
Can't stand me
Because I was a mistake
Our two years together was a mistake
She says
And I don't want to believe it's true
But deep down I think I was a mistake too
And my own parents didn't notice
The numb machine their son had become
But they get worried when I stop talking to them now
Because I realized that I have nothing to say
To the people I share a home with
Because they
Know nothing about me
And the person I've become
But they try to enforce
Their irrelevant morals
While invading my privacy
And destroying any trust
I can't wait to get out of this house
And for someone to finally tell me
That I can breathe
I am suffocating

Whenever I try
To reach out to the people who raised me
I am always
Reminded of why I don't
I reached critical mass the other day
Finally had enough
Of the way my brain works
Like a broken record
Playing nothing but white noise
And reached out to get the help
That I can't provide myself
And they swatted my hand away
And gave me a band-aid
In the form of a five minute talk
To cover a wound
A lifetime long
That I have been trying
To stitch together
On my own
For years

But it's fine
In the classical story arc every character
Faces hurdles along the way
And soon the next chapter of my life will begin
Just please
Won't someone
Just tell me that I can breathe?
I can't wait to start college...

For One brief moment I found this love
This love that I had heard of
This love that heals all things;

This love that floods my soul
Like the water it find all of the cracks
It breaks down these things I try to hold
Giving me the strength that my being lacks;

A boldness that drives through bitter cold

A bitter cold that I could keep
The one that my soul longs for, for me
So I can make excuses and stay asleep
But He took that away from me
For one moment I am free.
I miss you

It would be selfish to wish you were back here hidden with me

Parking lot dates where too much fun to only last a few months.

I think About you a lot. But I’m doing good.

Always I unliked the Taste of Coffee.
Due to the Bitterness that comes with It
Until,I added more Sugar to it,to Override the bitterness,
And now it was Sweet Enough for Me.

LIfe, Well life is like a Cup of Coffee.
With lot of Problems in it, making it bitter
So Dont Hate your Life or Lose Hope.
Just Add some Sugar in your Life in the form of Love from the people who love you,
In the form of those laughs with your friends,
In the form of things that make you smile.
And no matter What,Always Stay Positive.
It won't make the Problems Disappear.
But It will definitely give you the Strength To
"Walk the extra Mile with a Smile:)"
I still don't love coffee so much but yess i dont hate it anymore.
This pallet reeks of contempt:
my diet consists of bitter pills,
but none so extensively potent.

My ego's no skin and entirely bone.
Chuck a Band-Aid into a gaping hole.
Attention's more 'quick fix' than antidote.

Is there pity for the pathetic?
Pat a love-starved girl on the back.
It's a sight, this bleary-eyed toddler
tugging on the sleeves of your guilt.

"Please tell me I'm worth your time!
Please tell me you care!!
Oh, please give me a second glance
if you've got one to spare!!!"

I sit and watch the stars unfold
And listen to their tales untold

Of how they broke off from the moon
And learned to shine their own light too
The light they'd stolen from the sun
To light the night for everyone

Of how they winked incessantly
To beckon us beyond our reach
And realize our most secret dreams

Of how they soon fall like all else
And become human themselves
To walk among us one more time
To love and lead us one last time
Before they too meet their demise
And leave our bitter lives

I sit and watch the stars unfold
And fall to earth – angels unknown
And in their place, up in the sky
I become their starry night
