and you’re only as small as the world will make you seem.”

trying to play love around the rules.”

  1. Self-Revelation.

    This time was different. I don’t really know why, but it was. Oh yes, I saw the end coming. Saw it from the very start. I never let myself get too caught up in the moment, because I saw through to who you truly were. I think this time, it was I ...

  2. Here's To The Past.

    I can’t get away from you. You’re running, lightning fast I’m racing, chasing sanity but I can sense you close behind. You’d never let me get away. You’re very good at hiding; lurking in the shadows pretending you’re...

  3. The Mighty Oak.

    At times it seems hope is the enemy, a fertile little seed hiding out in the corner. No matter how many trees sprout from the seed in time, each one is destroyed. Yet a new tree will grow. It is always the same tree, but maybe with slightly different b...

  4. It Meant Nothing.

    I absolutely hate what you did to me. And the more I think about it, the more it downright infuriates me. What did you think you were doing? How did you think this would end? And how can you stand there and act like nothing ever happened between us? Li...

  5. To Turn Out Right.

    I wonder if you know that you helped to break my soul. I’m sure you didn’t mean to, or maybe you did. I’ll never know. All that’s for sure is that I’m not really here. I’m not really whole. I’m broken, fragment...

  6. For You.

    I hate this fake smile. Do you hate it too? Perhaps if you came back around I could revive my smile, for you.

  7. When You're Gone.

    Sometimes I think about what I would say to you if I ever come face-to-face with you again. My first thought is that I would be a hard-ass, completely unrelenting and unforgiving of everything that you’ve done. That’s what I should do. But ...

  8. Reinforcement.

    Do you understand you hurt me? Do you realize I cried? I gave my heart I sold my soul I bought your every lie. Do you feel bad when you see me? Can you even sleep at night? It’s only you, ’Cuz my heart aches Each time I turn out the light. ...

  9. Windowside Thoughts.

    But what’s important? And what is love? An infinite inconsequent thing or experience or state? Someone, please fill me in, Because I know nothing of it. This life is but a tease. A taste of happiness, of something good and right. Oh, it feels so righ...

  10. This Is Not Me. (Mature)

  11. Alcohol. (Mature)

  12. The Girl in the Corner.

    Why don’t you love her, the girl in the corner? She really needs your love. Watch her in silence, curled up in the corner, waiting for a sign from above. She’s always alone, alone in the corner. Her smile gives away her disguise. It’s...

  13. She.

    So she sits. And she sighs. And she cries. And she gives up; She knows there’s nothing left. Nothing left in her soul. Nothing left in her heart. Nothing left for her to look forward to. She’s lost. She’s gone. And she knows it; she d...

  14. Scared.

    He took a deep breath. He focused on the taste of the air- crisp, clean, with a slight hint of cigar smoke somewhere in the distance. He held the breath in, contemplating. He exhaled slowly, letting his eyes graze over the dotted tiles of the ceiling. ...

  15. Indifferent.

    Indifferent. Why am I indifferent? This touch This taste This smell should all mean so much could all mean so much if it wouldn’t hurt me so much. Fight Thrive You and me sure to be happily until we see that we can’t be when we’re ...

  16. Your Eyes.

    Your eyes. You know how I melt in your eyes. They’re lies, they hypnotize, disguise. I despise your eyes. They look They stare without a care, everywhere. Do I dare lose myself in your eyes? I’m lost I’m found. All around there is no...

  17. Consistency.

    How silly of me to think I’d found A truly different you To think that I had come to know something special, something new. I held my heart, my guard was up But somehow you broke through You held me close and let me cry when I didn’t know w...

  18. Resilient.

    Do you think that you can break these walls? They’re made of a material some kind of material that is indestructible unbreakable invincible constant and unrelenting. Stronger than cement, Resilient and, truthfully, quite daunting. Why aren’...

  19. Hollow.

    So I heard that you’ve been asking around. Well baby, that’s too bad- I’m sure you’ll come to realize I’m the best you never had. Your hands were cold, your stare so blank, Your heart a hollow cave. Your soul is black, and...

  20. Toxic.

    I shouldn’t be okay with this, but somehow I’m carefree; Reckless, raunchy, wearing down- We’re toxic, you and me. Like poison winding through your veins I’m acid, cold and slow. A venom meant to take your life I’m cancer ...

  21. Repeat.

    Look at me, silly ’ol me. What have I become? Doing breathing anything for a little coke and rum. Slurping Sipping here and there trying to forget my past. Feeling hoping that maybe this buzz will find some way to last. Flirting winking, eyeing y...

  22. Emphasis.

    This feeling, this drowning falling crashing. This reaching grasping emptiness. This helpless despair depressing. I feel gone lost floating. Seeping through the cracks slits holes in my heart. I am losing broken falling apart. You are everything nothin...

  23. Dear Father.

    Dear Father, You ruined me. And you don’t care. I believed you that day, when you said you were just going to the grocery store, and that you’d be back soon. Funny how I never saw you again. You left, and you took an essential part of me ...

  24. Stone.

    Rip my heart out. Wear it on your sleeve. Dangle it in front of me. Kiss it when you leave. Toss it in the garbage. Throw it down the drain. Put it through the shredder; and hope the blood won’t stain. Use my love against me When you hold me in y...

  25. Answers.

    How much would it hurt To take away a life? And is it wrong to want to end The worry and the strife? It could be so simple, An action done with ease. My life would slowly ebb away… Think about it, please? Living versus dying; Which would you pref...

  26. Make It Stop.

    Can you hear me? If you don’t act soon, I will slowly fade away into nothing. Can you see me? I’m losing more and more of myself and my sanity every day. Will you fix me? It’s rough, this hell called living. Can I make it stop? Pleas...

  27. Unlovable.

    What is it about me that makes me so unlovable? Why am I alone every single day? What about me is so wrong so vile so downright unattractive that makes me so extraordinarily unwanted by every person on this forsaken planet? What should I change? I ...

  28. Oblivion.

    At times I contemplate the pros of dying. I wish for it. I long for it. I grow impatient. I consider making it happen. I have nothing to fear. What is the point of living If I am not happy? There is a feeling deep inside of me that keeps telling me ...

  29. Misery.

    There is but one constant in my life: Misery. Every day every hour every minute; It is all i feel. It is all I know. It all seems so unfair - why must I suffer so, When everyone around me seems so wretchedly happy? I never can seem to do anything righ...

  30. Said & Done. (continued)

    So what is it that motivates us to be better, gentler, more refined? I like to think it’s those close to us. Close to the heart and soul. Those who carried you to the car after you puked on their shoes. Those who took the blame for breaking the w...
