falling Dec 2014
auburn days roll by
like the end of a lit
cigarette, with a
puff of smoke
and emotionless
lipstick stains.
seasons pass
like the whiskey
bottle is drained
to an end to
drown those
emotionless
lipstick stains.
tears tick by
like the bottle
of pills that
cover the crisp
bathroom floor
escaping the pain
of emotionless
lipstick stains.
life comes to a halt
like the budding
drops of crimson
blood that paint
my favorite
bracelet running
away from the
emotionless
lipstick stains.

there was something about you,
that made me feel so alone,
something that made me think
i was nothing without you.

whenever i looked at you,
i couldn't help but realise,
how emotionless you were,
i craved knowing how you felt
and if you ever looked at me,
to come across my emotionless face.

i'm sorry i couldn't gather my nervous,
i couldn't ever face you and speak up,
i'm sorry i looked down whenever
you walked by.

i'm sorry i couldn't be noticeable,
but a person like you should know:
you looked breathtaking even if
you were*  emotionless....

-n
Im emotionless sometimes
Sometimes I dont know how to feel
I feel what im tild to feel
Until I met you
Emotionless
Im no lobger this way becuase of you
You fill me with love and joy
You make me feel like the luckiest man in the world
I love you

Never show your emotion,
never show your pain.
Be emotionless, fearless,
show you are the one and only.
No emotion keeps you sane.
No emotion is me, me.
Emotionless is the Key to Success.
Elise Law Aug 2014
I was left alone,
In this harsh world,
Feeling betrayed and unwanted.

I sat there,
Waiting for him to come back,
But as time passed,
My emotions were starting to be stripped away from me.

By the time he came back,
I was already emotionless.

The only thing I could feel was hurt.

I was hurt because he left,
But one thing that hurt most was not knowing what love felt like anymore.

The feelings you have when you love one person,
Or the love you receive from your one and only.

They were all lost in a split second.
This is something that I felt, or didn't feel during that period of time. I was devastated to know that I didn't know how to love for a short period of time. I just hope that it doesn't happen again.

Of ones heart with shadows lurking to take over spite is made precious to be felt exciting while it is in fact trecious, but a sleeping terror awakens at times as well, thus a rampage is made amongst it,
A thrill wandering down your spine when you wrong someone and see them tremble through your actions a cold shiver followed by spite
Choosing a carefree life, yet unable to hide the fact that no spark would be able to illuminate whats in your dark, where angels fear to tread, only to explore this loitering abyss within you for some time,
All this blood lust must bring you to insanity, make you a lunatic,
But let it happen, in this emotionless shell it's what feels majestic,
The storm raging inside, waiting to feed on this caused chaos,
Evil and vile, heartless not carrying a smile while mercilessly continuing this riot of a resented soul waiting, longing for destruction
Feeling alike to be burning up, priceless about this act of cruelty until the wanted realisation drives its way into your soul and you question yourself what you have done, or why you have done it for anyway,
But the time will come again for sure, so be ready for it to arrive
When the sleeping terror awakens for another dance

but when she drew
that portrait of herself,
it didn't look anything
like her
she drew glimmering green eyes,
yellow flowers in her dark hair,
and a smile
she drew a genuinely
happy girl
and it was that right there
that caused her to
not see the resemblance
because she was so
used to seeing
an emotionless face
with sad eyes
without much character
in the mirror
that when she drew the smile,
she didn't recognize herself

In depth
there's only fear and disbelief
deeper you will find nothing else
just void

the courage
is only the drop on the surface
wearing it like my favourite dress
not many times

there is rage
it intensifies how I feel
using every other emotions as fuel
it burns them

After the fire
Tired enough not to think much
and in a bad situation as such
I fall asleep

Waking the regret
funnily it keeps on returning
the cycle ongoing
bury it within

I am emotionless
with too many emotions dancing
improved a lot in masking
happy with my newfound skill.
Erica Girone Nov 2018
Emotionless
When we touch
Not a single feeling
Not even lust

Emotionless
When we speak
Nothing between us
That’s worth to keep

Emotionless
For the very first time
Empty, Deadweight
As you kiss inbetween my thighs

Emotionless
But I wish I loved you
Unfortunately though darling
That won’t ever be true
Poetry by MAN Feb 2014
Black Rose sweet Demon bud
A kiss from a Vamp with the taste of blood
Emotionless hearts infused with desire
Intoxicating lust sets us on fire
Exposed skin..Reveals our sin ..As we dig in
I tie you up..You go down..Feel my whip..Wrap around
Call me Dom..You my Sub
Wearing your body like a glove
Drop your disguise..Through your eyes..See this devil rise
No surprise angels cry when I enter your thighs
In the realm of our imagination together we flow
****** stroke mental poke entering you slow
Is there Beauty in the Darkness? I suppose...
My Bloom under the moon my Black Rose..

All things are trivial
Loneliness just temporary
Love is worth it
And hate is pure waste

People come to you
And people go from you
Situational indifference
Nature is emotionless

So go about your day
Stay up and merrily
Let the river flow
But let the memory stay
Xyns Apr 2014
I'm happy one minute
And then you flip
And so do I

One minute I'm in love
And rightly so
But then you decide to speak

You like to take anything
That brings us joy
And crush it

Well, we won't pretend anymore
You've lost now
It's all over now

We aren't under your control
You're just going to lose us
But we belong here

And so I'll fight for them
Against you
And do what I know to do

So while you flip and flop
Change your emotions
I'll be emotionless

Because none of us can stand it
Any longer with you

What's the point in trying anymore
Wasn't it better when I was emotionless
Emma Chatonoir Mar 2013
I still love you
Even though you think I don't
I always have
You just didn't notice
Even though you think I don't
I have feelings inside
You just didn't notice
I had problems with emotion
I have feelings inside
Feeling I wanted to show
I had problems with emotion
Trying to keep it low-key
Feelings I wanted to show
But hid for fear of loss
Trying to keep it low-key
I simply smiled
But for fear of loss
And acting flamboyant
I simply smiled
That meant a lot
And acting flamboyant
Was something I hid
That meant a lot
Smiling just for you
Was something I hid
From everyone else
Smiling just for you
Said I really did care
From everyone else
I didn't act the same
Said I really did care
Shaking but genuine
I didn't act the same
Because you were unique
Shaking but genuine
I loved being with you
Because you were unique
Because you were mine
I loved being with you
You kept me safe
Because you were mine
I felt a lot closer
You kept me safe
From the creepy guys
I felt a lot closer
A bond underneath
From the creepy guys
I was able to be calmer
A bond underneath
Tying us together
I was able to be calmer
But still the crazy girl you loved
Tying us together
Tearing us apart
But still the crazy girl you loved
You said I talked too much
Tearing us apart
Never really happened
You said I talked too much
And pulled me close
Never really happened
To make me shut up
And pulled me close
So I could hear your heart
To make me shut up
I would listen
So I could hear your heart
Beat around me
I would listen
And nearly melt
Beat around me
Brought me comfort
And nearly melt
The tears away
Brought me comfort
Knowing you were there
The tears away
The scars healed over
Knowing you were there
Made me less neurotic
The scars healed over
I could drop the knife
Made me less neurotic
And able to focus
I could drop the knife
That brought me deserved pain
And able to focus
On something positive
That brought me deserved pain
When you'd hold me too tight
On something positive
You secretly found the scars
When you'd hold me too tight
The world would stop
You secretly found the scars
But made them heal
The world would stop
So would my heart
But made them heal
With golden touch
So would my heart
Turn to stone
With golden touch
And magic
Turn to stone
And capture the moment
And magic
Of teenage love
Ad capture the moment
To be there forever
Of teenage love
Which apparently was fake
And could never last
Which apparently was fake
Everyone was so happy
And could never last
I hoped this would go on
Everyone was so happy
To see us together
I hoped this would go on
I would marry you
To see us together
Would trigger happiness
I would marry you
Right?
Would trigger happiness
You felt that too
Right?
Or maybe you are the emotionless one
You felt that too
So I thought
Or maybe you are the emotionless one
It's too hard to tell
You felt that too
I think
It's too hard to tell
It's complicated
I think
You never really cared
I was just being used
It's complicated
You never really cared
I could hear it
I was just being used
Like a stuffed animal
I could hear it
The apathy was deafening
Like a stuffed animal
I could be tossed aside
The apathy was deafening
When I really listened
I could be tossed aside
And I doubt you would care
When I really listened
There was nothing to save me
And I doubt you would care
If I left your life
There was nothing to save me
The damage was done
If I left your life
As suddenly as I came
The damage was done
So would you even care?
As suddenly as I came
I could leave
So would you even care?
Would you even say goodbye?
I could leave
If you didn't first
Would you even say goodbye?
Or just say nothing
If you didn't first
I thought about leaving
Or just say nothing
Cause I really did care
I thought about leaving
But I would never say goodbye
Cause I really did care
Maybe too much
But I would never say goodbye
Cause I loved you
Maybe too much
I should have set you free
Cause I loved you
You would eventually come back
I should have set you free
And let you wander back
You would eventually come back
Love always does that
And let you wander back
Where you belong
Love always does that
Confuse people
Where you belong
And how that will happen
Confuse people
Make him think I don't care
And how that will happen
Cause that's not true
Make him think I don't care
Bull
Cause that's not true
The love is here despite the hate
Bull
I don't even know anymore
The love is here despite the hate
And the hate is small enough
I don't even know anymore
Life is confusing
And the hate is small enough
For the love to shine
Life is confusing
And love can be cruel
For the love to shine
Is quite hard
And love can be cruel
And not show up outside
Is quite hard
To prove it exists
And not show up outside
Like introversion
To prove it exists
I have to toughen up
Like introversion
I just look emotionless
I have to toughen up
And prove I still care
I just look emotionless
Cause I don't know what to do
And prove I still care
As hard as it is
Cause I don't know what to do
I must do it
As hard as it is
I'm ready to fly
I must do it
Prove what I say is true
I'm ready to fly
And tell you I still care
Prove what I say is true
Ask the dreaded question
And tell you I still care
Will you take me back
Ask the dreaded question
Get some twisted answer
Will you take me back
Be beautiful again
Get some twisted answer
Wait to hear more
Be beautiful again
Let's do another take
Wait to hear more
Wait for me to open
Let's do another take
I always have
Wait for me to open
I still love you

With No Emotions left

I feel alone

Trying to understand the meaning of why

I no longer feel the need to love

Trying to contemplate ways in which I should once again

Make myself feel the need to feel

As memories race inside an empty space that was once my heart

That you have killed

I can't imagine me being on my own

While others have taken this place that you have once called my home

I've never given up the thought

Of you being in my heart

As you twist

And turned

And Pulled

Me apart

I can no long concentrate

As this nonfeeling has sealed my fate

This seems so unfair

But my emotions were never there

From the start

I knew you had no heart

So now all of this is true

I was never after you

So please don't hate me for my sins

My emotions are held within

The thin-line of my skin

So This I must confess

Cause I wanted to get it off my chess

no less

stressing me

cause you couldn't get next to me

While the Lord kept on blessing me

So forgive me for my sins

Cause all this could have been avoided

If only you had felt what I felt

When I had emotions to cover up my welts

Of being abused from emotionless love
Umi Apr 2018
Silicate, emotionless sedimentary,
Darling, it is cold, doesn't care wheter it breaks or if it is swept away in a stream, cut into small pieces by the sharp rush of flowing water,
While it may hold no emotions, it can be the bringer of hope, bliss, happiness, sadness but also spite and envy, or a simple fulfilment,
Look at the wedding-rings, their stones on top to embellish beauty such as the insurance to be with the other through thick and thin,
Some diamonds are rough, but they are stronger than stones, if that is enough, harder and almost unbreakable, sorted in line moliculary,
When the kiss of death puts us to rest, a tombstone is the sad, cruel remembrence of a former life, sprouting blossoming and blooming, before returning to the soil it once had found its origin, its beginning,
I will try to be your wishing one, your shooting star, racing through the glory of the starlit nightsky to catch a moment of your passion,
Burning up within the atmosphere of your warm embrace, dearest.
Drawn by your gravitational impact on me, I will be your comet, returning to you each day without burning away as rapid as a meteor.
Darling, alike a blazing Sun you make me melt.

~ Umi
I am sorry for these love poems, I can't help it sometimes <3
Sean Harbor May 2015
The water runs cold through my hair,
Across my face and down my back.
I stand there motionless,
Emotionless.

The ground changes from dirt to mud,
Between my toes and through my soles.
I sit there motionless,
Emotionless.

The sky pours down my back,
Into my clothes and soaks my bones.
I lie there motionless,
Emotionless.

The thoughts in my head start to fade,
Beyond my sight and far from home.
I am motionless,
Emotionless.
Sea Oct 2014
The King of the
Emotionless
strikes again,
too careless to notice
the war he began.

He retreats back
to the castle
to smoke a ****,
and sleep alone
in his empty bed.
Umi Mar 2018
To its mistresses wish, the blade dances through till she has been pleased, leaving a mess by engraving the scars of death as a mark, Alike a shadow she does not crack, cavorting a masacre of cruelty,
Berserking she follows the orders, shedding blood in fountains of death and misery without chance for this rage to stop without order,
Emotionless, cold, time is for her to stop moving when her ****** devotion consumes her entirely, swaying in the dark, destroying,
Tortured with true or false everyone disappears, time flows again,
A phantom glides over the sea of blood, in a mist, scarlet red,
Observing this would cause a riot of emotions to rage in pure fury,
Her name already burnt away, as a new one was given to her after this rumpus had found its peak, leaving the mistress in bliss, joy,
Watching their attemps to flee as they reach their dying moments,
Until those who get to close have perished, nobody and nothing left,
Cricling karma surely will catch them, after this sacrifice is done,
Warm blood melts the left over snow, laughter echos and reverbrates through the unending seeming night, bells ring, it is only midnight.
In the end her loyalty and efforts, her energy and love for her mistress
Are but a ****** devotion

~ Umi

i cannot hate you,
the way i hate your opinions,
but *******,
you sure are ****** for
someone so emotionless
for a friend.
Meg McCluskey May 2010
I cant seem to get you out of my head…
The way you used to be.
The way we used to be...
We were once friends,
As close as can be.
And now...look at what time
Has done to us.

I don't even know
Who you are
Anymore.

Who we once were
And who we are now
Is not who we used to be--together.

Has my heart grown cold
In your absence?
Or has your sudden absence
Made my heart grow cold?

I hate to place the blame on you.
Yet, it seems, all this started
The day you refused
To return my calls.
My heart began to freeze
When I begged for you to talk
But got no reply.
Mostly, my heart began to break
Never understanding why
You abruptly left.

Was it something I said?
Was it something I did?
You never told me.

Even now,
That we are attempting
To patch up this mess of ours...
I know in my heart
We will never be
The same two people
We once were--together.

Now, together, we are different.
It seems our best relationship now
Is one that is separate...far apart.

I think I have just become so exhausted…
I can't take anymore of this.
My body feels so weak.
I feel like an emotionless drone...
Unsure if feeling will ever
Make my body feel rich
And alive once more.
I feel dead inside.
My body exists, but only that.
Who am I?

I don’t like change because it hurts.
It is too painful.
Especially when people change…
When you look into their eyes
And see the ghost of who they used to be.
When you look into your heart
And wonder if maybe it is you
Who has changed.

Every day i wake up wondering if I'll ever be the same person i was the day before,
When i first met you I let all my doubt and pains float away
But instead you left my heart shattered like broken glass on the floor.
Why don't i ever learn?
I was too emotional i felt all the pain,
Until i couldn't feel it anymore
No its not your fault..It's mine
I was too emotional,
So now
I'll be emotionless
No more pains
No more tears
No more sorrows
There won't be any feelings there for you to shatter like window panes.
I won't be human I'll be something else
I'll become numb.
So emotionless.

I've been making promises all week,
Telling all these men that they're the ones for me,
But I have to be honest with you,
I don't feel anything,
I'm just on a roller coaster of emotions
and now I'm going for the loop,
And everyone behind me is screaming,
But I'm just along for the ride,
I don't think you understand my situation,
My dad left when I was nine,
and I've never been the same since that time,
He was in my life,
and loved me,
Then he up'd and walked away,
I don't think you can even say he loved me,
Men don't do that to their daughters,
I guess there's suppose to be some kind of unbreakable bond,
Well we showed them wrong,
Just like we always did,
I meet new guys every night,
Who hold me close and tell me they love me,
But  I hate all the words,
I just smile and tell them I need to be getting home,
Maybe one night I won't want to go home,
But I doubt it,
I don't feel a thing.
linds Dec 2014
im not sure if you noticed but when you left you took my heart and soul with you and people keep on asking me why is there a bandaid over where my heart is suppose to be and ive ran out of excuses on why im emotionless and maybe when you find the chance you could hand them back and possibly could we talk about you and i because people keep on wanting to talk about what happened with us and what went wrong and the great and the ugly but the truth is the only person i want to talk to about us is  with you.
Nolan Davis Oct 2011
Take your beating heart and throw it on the floor.

That way it will not break anymore.

**** off all emotion that you can feel.

That way your conscious will begin to heal.



Sympathy to those who only lead you astray.

Will leave you with thoughts but nothing to say.

So therefore caring is nothing but pain.

This feeling of support will drive you insane.



Heartless and cold, that's the way to live.

Nothing to take, nothing to give.

So just be empty inside your heart.

And know that you play the part.
El Nov 2014
He watched as the tears flowed down my face
But I turned away to hide his disgrace
I took my heart and held it tight
held in the pain with all of my might
I took a breath
Sharp in
Cut out

As a felt his hand on my shoulder
But I was already filled with doubt
when I turned around to meet his gaze
Mine was hard, and soon his was hazed
I yanked away from his desperate grasp
But I think I already knew we were done and past

I heard his voice crack with sadness
"Please stay, I love you, I'll miss you, I need you"
Choking on sadness, but holding the rest down
I whispered back, with an emotionless sound
**"You may have forgotten what love meant, But my love is something where rules cannot be bent"
Amitav Radiance Mar 2015
Transient happiness
Drought in our heart
Emotionless
Passionless
Love’s an oasis
We are
Weary travelers
Unaware of
The ramifications
Of unloved Earth
Nature’s revolt
Will encage us
Within our faults
Overzealous we are
Perilous future
Awaits us

I wandered the hallways
I drank my coffee
I drank your water
I bought a record
I buttoned my shirt
I unbuttoned my pants
I cracked my bones
I cracked a window
I turned off
I turned on
I washed the dishes
I washed my face
I washed my hands
I cut my arm
I cut class
I cut off
Nyah Sep 2015
Getting hurt is inevitable
Also is an obnoxious feeling that no one can't resist
Some people would rather feel nothing at all
Wishing love didn't exist

Why don't they love us back?
Leaving us false hope
It gives us a heart ache
Like tying ourselves in a strong rope

Why look for something when right one's in front of you?
Loving them makes our life complete
They make our life out of the blue
That no one can't compete

We may feel weak at first because of suffering
But one day, we'll gonna learn lessons by recovering
Tamara Walker Jul 2018
An artist,
I’m scared to be left to my thinking atoms and nuclear cells
Why solder my raining thoughts to reality
In my head I can’t trust these clockworks
Rusted gears precariously tricking forward
Tensions unbalance on a pinched nerve ending
Hesitate I retract to others knowing what I don’t know
That once I start I might fail
I don’t do what I want to
I don’t speak when I want to
When I so desperately need to
Before I explode
Violently, into a void
Void of emotionless urges
An artist like me if I so believe I am
Doubtfully attempts to act in the face of thunder
Only to cowardly hide in a cat’s whisker
Inner bricking delays outer progress
Progress I provocatively flaunt to the alive bodies
While knowing the fallacious congrats is unwarranted
I don’t believe in magical rainbow kitten surprise wishes
But I won’t also hide my love
With the internal flame dimming
I want to act the part by flipping over the stones
For the mysteries hidden away
To see them crawling out
My untapped desires
This is a piece from a much longer poem called "Plenty Words." It's about my feelings as an artist without much to say.
Godlink Sep 2017
Emotionless,
thoughts of bliss.
8th grade scars,
and sliced up wrists.
A broken heart,
a broken mind.
A ****** up world,
where no ones kind.
Isolation,
dedication.
One gun, one bullet,
my desolation.
Thoughts of you,
once in my head.
My few last thoughts,
before I'm dead.
A heart only beats
nothing less, nothing more.

Fake smiles, fake tears
no sorrow, no joy
no love I can feel
There's nothing but emptiness inside.
Peyton Smith Nov 2012
I let the beat come in so can I commit a sin again,
With my friends, asking does this madness really ever end?
It’s cyclical, repetitive and cynical,
I’m a loser lost in the place where winners go,
Like a maze, without an exit in sight,
These type of thoughts keep me awake every night,
I can’t get an ounce of sleep, so I get a gram of dro,
And that keeps me problem free for an hour or so,
I know it’s wrong, sort of physiological dependency,
I struggle, feeling like the weight of the world’s been set on me,
I’m disassociated until I get a beat to slay, because
Writing helps me find just right where my place is,
If not, I get wasted, a drunk punk, faceless,
I know I’ve got a problem, but i’m too scared to face it..
Samantha Nguyen Jul 2018
we kissed.
"are you happier now." you said.
nobody's ever going
to
          love
                    me.
but at least sadness doesn't devour me as easily.
i got thoughts to banish the
          sadness
and
                    pain.
the only thing i've ever wanted was for someone to love me.
it's a tragedy.
this is a love story that will end like r + j.
but unlike shakespeare, my brain isn't dead.
i will fight for love like the capulets and montagues.
i will die for this love to last.
and i will do anything just to make you happy.
but yet,
                    i'm
still
          not
loved.
it's impossible for someone like him, my romeo whose eyes are darker than the night sky,
to fall for a vulnerable juliet, who on the inside is a weak, emotionless girl who doesn't ever
get
what
she
wants.
when will you love me.
martin murray Apr 2014
We like to be in peace
Lies disrupts the timeline of human beasts
Sending you to decision making feats
Making you think of an unchangeable decision
Life is full of actions requiring a question
Answers and choices
Whichever path you choose might leave you exploited
Everybody has a weakness, which might lead to stress
Emotionless people take advantage of any weakness
How a friend can save a life
Your best friend can destroy your life
Even though police are on the frontline
Some can create the stealth crime
Leaving so many people blinded with a fine
Who is that voice we found solace to confide in
Dr Strange Oct 2014
Who am I to judge men with broken souls
To tell them that the dagger that currently pierces their heart hurts or not
What right do I have to tell them to get over it
As if I have felt the pain that courses through their veins
Over the generation humankind has been known to reject science they have yet to understand
And as a man I can vouch for that
We as men have been marked as emotionless beings
But can you really blame us for it
Growing up we were fed with the knowledge of our past lives
That we had to remain strong when times got tough
Simply because of the fact that we are men
When they cry our shoulders are the ones they lean upon
When they are scared we are the ones they look to for protection
And we can't let them down
What would we look like if we ran cowardly in the mist of the darkness
Seeing their faces slowly being drenched in tears as we turned the other way
So as men we reject the feeling of pain to be there for those who need our help
But because of this we cry silently into the air wishing we had the option to run
That we had the option to hide behind someone and feel safe
But that's not the case
We stand there starring danger in the eyes only thinking about those behind us
So when I see a man with a broken soul I can't blame him
Though I probably haven't felt his pain, I felt pain similar too it
For the dagger it leaves lodged into your chest
You tell us if it hurts or not

Sprawled out on the floor
Clenching the syringe
Wished I thought through before
I could have put it to better use

I remember what you said
There were so many emotions
I should’ve removed them instead
Then I’d be empty again

No love and no hate
I wouldn’t feel anything
My heart would sedate
For then I’d be hollow

But I used it for wrong
Pulsing through my veins
So much feeling, so strong
A feeling I do not want

You played with my emotions
You’re why I lay here now
Floating in black oceans
...I never learned to swim
