Poets are those who love,--who feel great truths, And tell them.

want to die
instead i cry
cant decide
what to do
who to run to
so many fears
drowning in tears
dead inside
lost my mind
fuck my life
wheres my knife
cant take this anymore
my eyes continue to pour
looking around
you're nowhere to be found
i guess when i said hi
i really meant goodbye

A Conflict Inside My Head

by Amanda 

There's a conflict brewing,
deep in the middle of my mind.
It's slowly finding its way,
finally finding the day.
The conflict has become,
a part of who I am,
and who I must become.
Fighting its way to the surface,
trying to leave my mind's domain.
My head pounds,
as the conflict inside is torn.
my mind brings me to realize,
that no conflict was present,
nothing was ever there,
it was a cliche,
a nothing.
There was nothing to become,
nothing to strive to be,
because I've been it all along.
I've been strong throughout it all,
honest with myself and others.
Passionate with nature itself,
and proud of who I am.
The conflict was a cliche,
a nothing,
a mirage of the imagination,
a conflict of nothingness.

It hit me in an instant
The cold steel fracturing
my being
Breath taken
Flailing to survive
I sunk...
The car hit her in an instant
The pain hit us.

The Person I'll Never Know

by Emily

I never expected to want to stay here, so far from home. 
But in those short moments when we talk, I don't feel so alone. 
It's probably not meant to be, only a dream. 
I'm scared I'll wake up and won't remember the eyes 
that tell stories and a smile that never lies. 
But that's all I'm allowed to feel.
I wonder what it would be like to touch you, 
See if you're real. 
We'll separate soon, and I'll cry, 
Because the person I wanted to know, 
Will have to say goodbye.


by Sam

Why am I so crazy about this one strange guy?
It seems that every time I'm with him, 
time just flies by. 
He's quirky and outgoing.
He sings and plays guitar. 
But if I tell him how I really feel, 
I will have gone too far.

Hopefully we'll just be perfect
When he sees who I really am.
He'll laugh and talk and smile and walk 
And just love me for being Sam.

Is it better this way?
When I'm dying every day.
Loneliness likes to stay
Do you want me to walk away?

Don't leave me hanging
In this world that's ever changing
Can't you see I'm fading?
Please take care of my heart that's been bleeding.

Will I have no more tears to cry??
Will I never hear you say "goodbye"?
Or will we never have another try?

Will you ever turn and walk away?
Will you not rescue me today?
All I want for you is to stay,
Until the end of the day.

Daddy I Miss

A Father's Touch, 
A Daddy's Kiss,
A Grieving Daughter,
You're Truly Missed. 
An Empty House, 
An Empty Chair, 
My Daddy's Love 
No Longer There. 
A Broken Heart, 
Tear Filled Eyes, 
Another Soul 
To Fill The Sky. 
Many Memories 
In My Mind, 
Some I Laugh, 
Some I Cry. 
The Times We Shared, 
The Laughs We Had,
Things I Miss
When I Think Of You Dad. 
Realizing That's All I Have 
To Hold On To,
Only Memories
Of What Was Once You. 
Missing Your Laugh, 
I Will Never Again Hear
This Is The Reality 
That Fills Me 
With So Much Fear. 
No More Smile 
On Your Face
No More Warmth 
Of Your Embrace. 
The Last Hug, 
The Last Kiss,
The Last "Goodbye"
Leaves Me With
One Last Wish. 
To Have You Daddy
Here Today 
Never To Leave 
Your Daughter This Way. 
A Father's Touch, 
A Daddy's Kiss,
A Grieving Daughter,
You're Truly Missed.

I'll tell you,
love is when you want to be with someone 
so bad that you'll do anything.
it means that you don't want anyone other than that person.
you think about them all the time,
wondering if they feel the same,
but you never truly know how they feel,
which hurts when you find out they don't feel the same way.
and no matter how hard you try...
you can never truly get them off your mind.
the worst part about it...
is that you never stop searching for someone better,
when you know that isn't possible...
but when time comes to move on,
don't go looking for someone new;
let them find you....

I was young
even naïve, when I first met Her;
a beautiful white dove
with wings like an angel
and eyes blue as the sky.
She gave me wings;
she taught me
to fly
with Her
always by my side.

And then she left me.

And my wings disappear
and I’m falling,
the wind tearing at me
the empty endless sky
my only witness
falling down
to the rock hard ground
of Reality.
Slowly I stand up
and pick up the pieces
of my shattered soul
and begin anew.

Storms of November

Fighting the world with all my might
Hoping to stay alive for just another night
Feeling the innocence soon to be conceived
The face of that man living inside of me
Looking at my future ahead
Almost gone as good as dead
Remembering all the pain and tears
Using the white stuff to take away fears
starring into the city of strangers
They don't care about me or my anger
Trying hard not to remember
Crying during the storms of November

That Summer

by Alex

i watch the sunrise and think of you; of us.
i remember us barefoot, us in the rain, us watching the stars.
now i know i'd take back the words i have said.
especially the ones said to you.

by Matt

The feeling of euphoria washes over me
Like when Hurricane Katrina came up to New Orleans.
And I know all you out there will find that offensive,
But right now my mind is on things much more extensive
Than your puny unintelligent ignorant opinions
Because in my eyes, you all are just stupid mindless minions.
You don't know what is like, to be like me
And really, really wish, that you could see,
Why I happen to decide to do the things that I do,
And why it looks like everyday I'm feeling so blue.
But I know that by now to you I'm worthless and scum,
And I also know I'm still worth something to some,
The ones I sell to and buy to anytime that I please,
And my dog and my girlfriend who's really a sleaze,
So maybe before you go making your petty judgments,
You'll notice that the heart that keeps me going has multiple dents,
Because I hope that, one day, I'll be saved,
From this one stupid drug that I've always craved.
I'm writing this all down from my room all alone,
Waiting for my nonexistent wife to come home.
Because the drug that I desire is a drug you can't make,
But everyone needs and some people make it seem fake,
The drug that I want and the drug that I need,
Is the drug that would explain it to you all indeed.
It is the reason why I am such a pitiful being,
And right now I cannot believe what I'm seeing.
Because I think my true dealer has come to stay,
The one girl I love just stopped my death and decay.

One Man

by Chelsea

It was a dark night in September,
And yet she could still remember,
The pain she had inflicted,
To the one man that was gifted,
He was the only man, who knew,
What she had been going through,
A fate worse than death,
Her soul did not dare rest,
Glancing over her shoulder,
Her body grew colder,
She sensed that someone was there,
She felt eyes on her everywhere,
Casting eyes over to the shadow,
She had a feeling that she’d know,
The man hiding in the corner,
Slowly stepping closer,
She knew him at a glance,
The man she’d met by chance,
Five years he had been gone,
For her it was too long,
She could see into his heart,
Knowing she had no part,
The man she once knew,
Was staring right on through,
One word escaped his lips,
As he moved his finger tips,
To her it was treason,
She thought of what had died,
Beneath those bloodshot eyes,
He looked more ghost than man,
He slowly lifted his hand,
He held a single rose,
And made her cold down to her toes,
He dropped it on the floor,
And slowly turned towards the door,
She knew he meant to leave,
And she knew that she would grieve,
For all the love he once had shown,
To the woman who let out a groan,
She had given up her life,
For the man who now had a wife,
Beaten and betrayed,
She tried to call his name,
He slowly turned to stare,
At the woman who never cared,
He turned around once more,
And walked firmly out the door,
She fell onto her knees,
And let out sobbing pleas,
Knowing he was lost,
And crying at the cost,
The man whom she had snubbed,
And the one man she had loved.
