she can hear it in the air
she can feel it in her bones
X's on her arms, no pain at all
no pain at all
her heart quivers in excitement
her lungs ache from coldness
X's on her arms
to prove nothing at all.
Pictures of people dashing before hr quick eyes
Like their lives replaying for her
like a movie
and yet she doesn't even know them at all
Her lips pucker for the moment
and warm cheeks she finds
over and over again
A thrilling feeling she feels
X's on her arms
never vanishing
a mark that meant everything
but yet not very much at all
It's never gone, always there
It won't go away, those X's on her arms.
Without hesitation
She makes it trickle and laughs at it crudely
and let it fall to the floor
and down she swallows
until she laughs for no reason
and it's the best feeling she ever felt
and she wants to feel it again
and experience it all voer again
no one can stop her
not you or you or we or they
or us
not anyone.
No one can stop her uncontrollable desire
as she laughs and laughs the whole night
X's on her arms
with one glance, you know her story
you try to understand her
but you don't know much
you can't know anything
You won't be able to see so well
Because those X's on her arms
they aren't meant to be seen or told about
The stories behind them, she doesn't know
she doesn't remember, how can she?
It's a secret unknown

Oh yeah, I have to tell you guys that this falls into the Lyrical Poetry category . hope that's okay ^_^;


Losing Myself

Why did this illness choose me
It's like the darkness is in me
And won't let me struggle free
It twists and turns my soul
And leaves this giant hole
Where I must fill with what it stole

And I know
That I always fell through
With no one to catch me in view
Because I feel so alone
And I moan and groan
To be led home
Not left in this dark dome

As my saddening tears fall
I can't believe this at all
Because I feel so small
And down goes my barrier wall
Making me scream
"You're destroying my self-esteem"

So, if people understood how it felt
They would never doubt
what my sickness was about
And hold their hands out
And I would grab on and shout
"You finally figured it out!"
And with a sign of relief
I can once again believe
That this was meant to be
And happiness I shall receive

But looking the in the mirror
It's so damn clear
That I still feel so severe
The screams I remember
And the horrible dreams that scare me forever
Whenever I stand in front of the mirror
I wish not to hear
My drumming fear
That I can never steer

(I guess I'll submit this old one I created a while back.
Leans more towards Lyrics than Poetry, but oh well. )

-Dream's End-

In this place you left me behind
I thought to myself, 'If I keep searching, I'll find you'
Can you see me from where you are
Are you laughing at this corpse?
Do you think I hate you after all this?

You see me, but you just move further away!
You hear me, but you won't call out to me!
I reached out to you, but you pushed me away!
When all these dreams...come to end... where will we be then?

Hear me today, these are our last moments
You stormed into my dreams
With peace and warmth, you appeared before me
Time passed slowly as we wasted our time
Please don't let this dream die
Fade away into darkness...!

You see me, but you just move further away!
You hear me, but you won't call out to me!
I reached out to you, but you pushed me away!
When all these dreams...come to end...when will be then?

I'm hanging over the edge,
I wonder when I'll fall?
Will you leave me on the ground, or will you pull me up again?
Please don't turn your back on me...
Look at me if you're going to let me fall
What do you see in my eyes?

You see me, but you just move further away!
You hear me, but you won't call out to me!
I reached out to you, but you pushed me away!
When all these dreams...come to end...when will be then?

As all these dreams fade away...
I try to reach out in vain...
As soon as the dream ends...
You won't be here anymore.....

we all live in a fairytale
it protects us from the outside world
a world with guns that have bullets.
its funny how we bring these things into our fairytale

this fairytale is just a bubble
fragile yet forever lasting

i've lived in this fairytale for 16 years
since birth i've been here
and its hell
makes me wonder whats the outside like

whats this bubble really protecting us from?
....i should leave...
but the parent in tears yells "dont come out, its worse out here!"
so i'll stay in this hell of a fairytale

"it could be worse, so much worse"
the echos in my head repeat again and again
im getting sick of it
cause little kids die in this fairytale

i cant take it
my eyes hurt from crying
this fairytale is a lie
cause its already ended with a bang...

so give me the gun
i'll end it now
i'll pop this ugly fairytale
but still can't help but think its worse out there

what do i do?
i cant stay here!
i re-think...
and put the gun to my head

my heart beats quickly
sweaty hands shake fiercely
as i pull the trigger
the bubble burst

the darkness from the outside engulfs me
slowly it eats me
i cant do anything
except watch the fairytale
that goes on without me.

the parent cries as she watches me
"its so much better in there"
i whisper as i disappear
in my new home called
the real fairytale

"the fairytale's lies" by inu

Hello there I haven't been on for AGES, and i haven't updated in that same amount of time, so here's something new i hope you all enjoy. It's called ...


Misunderstood

Calm down, it's not so bad.
These things here happen for a reason.
And when the light shines bright upon the problems, don't go seeking dark.
Difference is grace, and then the things of time will greet the change
And money will no longer be salvation.
So don't you fret; dear life is plentiful,
And hearts don't wither.

Tomorrow, today, yesterday flies by tonight,
And things that break will get only stronger.
Trust is here; pocketed for safekeeping.
Don't go shedding tears.
Because when it rains no one can see you crying.
Crying the effort, to be only misunderstood.

Turmoil amounts; towers turn to dust.
These screams are your indignation.
And the poison from your tongue taints all clean souls.
For your lies are all severed bound ties to a world that seems so impossible,
And the fight has no winner.
So close your eyes; hope is imminent.
And starts don't vanish.

Morning, night, daybreak comes back slowly,
And those who lose will get a second chance.
Life is here; a river of anticipation.
Don't go shedding tears.
Because when it rains no one can see you crying.
Crying the effort, to be only misunderstood.

Wounds heal; the pain fades away.
These smiles are thawing your heart.
And the bliss of life comes to you in its songs.
As these lonesome pages are finally filled with the words of a friend in late,
The dark corners are also granted a light.
So keep your wish; the halls are full.
And smiles don't weep.

Beginning, end, the climax serves its purpose,
And The End feels like a beginning.
The Calm is here; a blooming dawn.
Don't go shedding tears.
Because when it rains no one can see you crying.
Crying the effort, to be only misunderstood.

But as the rain stops,
Thick clouds no longer weighed down,
Hearts no longer heavy,
They can see your tears; the pain, the crying out to the full moon at the beginning of dawn.
And they say,
"Calm down, it's not so bad.
These things here happen for a reason,
So don't go shedding tears.
Because when it rains we can't see you crying.
But now we know, and you are no longer misunderstood."

~ By Amanda I, Kujin-jump. ~

Hope you liked it
