Break You Out

Posted by Laura on December 19, 2012 at 12:30 AM Comments comments (0)

I may not be the same

As you once thought I was

I may be a little different

But who are you to judge?

I’ve moved on in my own life

You’re stuck in the mess you’ve made

Your sordid stare can’t hold me

I’m glad I never stayed

Your web of sick lies

Is intricate and fake

I won’t stand by and watch you fall

I won’t be there to keep you safe

You locked yourself away

Covered with self-doubt

But I’ve had enough

And I won’t break you out.

 

Picture Perfect

it’s so hard when people think you’re perfect.

not “you’re” singular, but “you’re” plural.

like, “you two are perfect together”

well, what if we’re not?

what if every time i see him i want to cry

because i know that i’ll just break his heart

and what if every time he smiles at me

i can’t help but think “i hate you, don’t leave me”

he lays on the couch as i type this

and i look over at him, tears rolling down my face in the dark

silence.

that’s our whole life now

just plain silence.

we never say anything important

we never make each other feel special

and from what others expect of us,

we’re just another perfect picture to envy.

Self-Conscious Smiles

Your sweet simper caught my eye

The day our lives collided and we concatenated

Inseparable, forever.

My once fallow heart now soars with emotions I never knew I couldfeel

Pure bliss and happiness surround my soul

I cathect your very being

And wrap myself in your loving arms

Never leave me and we’ll be

Inseparable, together.

 

You Are

I’ve never felt like                               someone

Could make me feel like I’m               worth

The world. I haven’t been                   living

Even though I’m alive. I need you      for

My life to be beautiful

 

She's Long Gone

You walk around like you're better than me

You try so hard so that others can't see

The monster that's held inside your skin

Forever's too long to hide your sin

You roll your eyes and pretend you don't care

But secretly you wish I were there

But, honey please, you know that I won't be

Your attitude is why I'm leaving you lonely

You can say that I'm wrong all you want

You should keep to yourself the body you flaunt

You're so proud that you're destructing yourself

When in reality you should be getting help

But you get mad that I'm fine, I can tell

So go ahead, keep putting yourself through hell

I just won't be around when you fall through the cracks

And I promise you that I'll never take you back

My Heart Isn't For You To Break

Purple, black, and blue

Broken right in two

What a stupid thing to do-

To give my heart to you.


I guess I'll leave you then

But that doesn't tell me when

All this pain will end,

So I can love again.


I'm heaver than lead

So I can't get out of bed

With these thoughts inside my head

Wishing I were dead.


Right now I cannot see

But I know eventually

All the hurt will cease

And I will be happy

Can You Tell Me?

Can you tell me what I’ve done?

Can you tell me why she’s gone?

Can you tell me what went wrong?

 

Can you tell me?

Can you tell me?

 

This is not what I had planned

Why doesn’t she give a damn?

Can you tell me who I am?

 

Can you tell me?

Can you tell me?

 

Can you tell me if I’m right?

Can you tell me what’s in sight?

Can you tell me if there’s anything left inside?

 

Can you tell me?

Can you tell me?

 

She left me all alone

But I guess I left her too

Can you tell me where she’s going?

 

Can you tell me?

Can you tell me?

 

Butterfly Wishes

Posted by Laura on May 14, 2011 at 4:52 PM Comments comments (1)

Tear drops fall from my eyes

And land on wings of butterflies

They fly off slowly, floating away

The tears will come another day

But my butterflies will be there

A sign of hope, they show they care

Their wings are gentle on my face

They calm me down for a change of pace

I lay outside, slowly drifting

They fly around, my spirit lifting

I'll make a wish so strong and true

They'll grab it tight and fly to you

They let the wish land on your heart

And when you grasp it they'll depart

Slowly the wish will infect your mind

But the infection is of a different kind

It's filled with love and hope and healing

And let you know what i've been feeling

I truly love you, i hope you know

I try so hard to let it show

And if you see it, blow me a kiss

Then i'll know you got my wish

Bittersweet Is Still Sweet

Love like a hurricane blows me away.

Into the breeze of yesterday.

Remembering why I'm here.

To fill a void of someone else who is near.

Help like a hummingbird, flying by trees

Going from flower to flower to tree.

Helping to grow and to flourish then die,

The hummingbird only helps the cycle of life.

Moments are fleeting and time will not stop.

Make all the moments count, make them all talk.

Make them say over and over again,

I love you, I miss you, I'll help you my friend.

Helping and leaving is hard to weather.

But handprints on hearts will last forever.

Take The Place Of You

Posted by Laura on February 8, 2011 at 2:22 PM Comments comments (0)

I'm puncturing my own skin

Visible holes because you can't see

The ones in my heart

I'll have 6 plus piercings straight through

Metal filling up and taking the place of you

I'm dying your presence out of my mind with

Frivolous colors

I'll look different

Does that mean I'll feel different too?

All just to take the place of you

I'm empty without you so I should never get

Tattoos, a permanent reminder of you etched on my skin

I looked for your face amongst a crowd

And I realized I'm never going to see you again

Only in pictures;

There goes another piercing

This is a problem; I know that's true

This is all to take the place of you

Something absolutely no one can do
