Break the Mold

09-12-14

 

Break the mold,

I want to be told,

"I'll be the one that you'll hold,"

For I no longer want to be cold...

Sweatshirt

09-13-14

 

We were both sitting,

With a few others around.

I take a look at you,

And you're shivering.

 

Take off my sweatshirt,

And throw it to you.

You put it on,

And everyone goes, "Awww!"

 

What?

It's the right thing to do.

But, I'm not saying,

If I do or do not like you....

We had to write a creation myth in English yesterday, so here's what I came up with.


Orbis Terrarum Textor, the Great Creator

In the beginning, there was nothing but darkness. No light, no life, just nothingness. It seemed that this place would remain empty forever, but after a long time, something entered this realm of nothingness. As a hole was cut, a creature emerged from this rip, and began to repair the hole it had made. It was a large spider that was pure white with pure black eyes. It was a very old spider, not quite as young as it once was. This spider was known as Orbis Terrarum Textor. As it walked through this black plane, electricity arched over it’s body. It slowly moved to the center of this plane. From there, it began to weave, for a very long time, it was nothing compared to the vastness of this great barren place. As time passed, the web grew ever larger. This web was adorned with many orbs, small and large, as far as the eye could see. As eons passed, the spider weaved and weaved, ever increasing this web. The spider finally finished this web and slowly moved back to the center. As it walked across the web, it rippled, sending shockwaves, these shockwaves moved or ripped orbs away from another. Some were lost, and some ended up far from their original place. The great spider finally reached the center, and began to concentrate. The electricity grew more fierce and began to concentrate in it’s jaws. Once all the electricity was focused in a single place, it shot out and raced across the web. As the electricity raced across, the web began to burn away. The largest orbs collected the most energy and began to burn, these were the stars. The smaller ones hardened, forming planets. Other orbs exploded that had become planets and became asteroids, comets, and meteors. This continued until the web was destroyed, and the great spider died. Orbis Terrarum Textor creator of many galaxies had died, but not before one last creation. It’s body faded away and all trace of this great creator was lost. As the universe was given life, other lesser creators adorned those barren planets with life. As life began to spring across the plethora of planets, the other creators left, leaving the newly made creatures to their own devices. This final universe was left to grow as the still living creators watch. Spiders were created to honor Orbis Terrarum Textor, with the same ability to weave. Though not powerful enough to create an actual universe, these spiders weave webs as beautiful as the great creator.

 

PS: Didn't know where else to put this

Current Trend

09-18-14

 

It seems,

That love,

Is,

Upside down.

 

It seems,

That non-caring jerks,

Are in,

And...

 

Those that care,

Aren't worthy,

Of love,

I guess that's the...

 

Current trend...

Written on the Wall

09-26-14


Written on the wall,

In my blood, sweat,

And tears,

Is my story of my life.




Nothing left out,

Nothing abridged,

Just the pure,

Truth




The wall was once,

Barren,

The wall was once,

White.




Nevermore...

It is adorned,

With,

Letters,




Long and tall,

As is wide,

This wall,

Shall never fall...




Anyone can see,

Anyone can read,

For it's,

Written on the wall...

Dear Firefly (WWII Version)

10-07-14

 

Dear Firefly,

Please shine your light,

Let your 76.2mm gun,

Light up the night...

 

Dear Firefly,

Please be my guide,

Blow holes in the sides of the German ironhides,

For we no longer want to die...

From stardust,

But, we're not as glorious,

As the stars that made us...

Drowning

 

10/21/14
 
If I could save myself,
From drowning.
I'd just walk away,
I don't see my life worth saving.
 
If it were anyone else,
I'd save them in a heartbeat.
They are actually worthwhile,
They will make a difference.
 
Just let my body sink.
Down, down into the dark depths.
Where no light enter,
Or eyes pierce.
 
Let the roaring tide,
Carry sediment to cover,
My useless body.
Let it disappear...
 
Quickly being buried,
Just as quick as I am,
Forgotten, and
Faded.
 
Let me be forgotten,
Don't search for me.
I'm not worth the time,
Do not disturb my watery grave.
 
Do not try to save me,
You won't reach me in time.
Don't waste your breath,
I am already gone.
 
I may look alive but,
I am drowning.
I'm a mile down,
And I've just begun...
 
I'm drowning in,
Self-hate, pain, fear,
Sadness, loneliness,
Guilt, shame, and rejection...
 
Let the water take me,
Let me drown and die,
Let me sink into the nothingness,
There I belong...

Omnius mille passus expeditio, omnis fossa bellum.

My Mother Thinks I'm a Terrorist

10/21/14
 
My mother thinks I'm a terrorist,
Yep, she told me.
Well, I couldn't disagree more.
Let me list why.
 
First, just because,
I love history of war,
Doesn't mean,
I want to blow myself up.
 
I find history,
Quite interesting.
Especially war history,
It's so amazing.
 
Second, I want to buy a tank.
Yes, indeed I do.
No, I won't go on a rampage.
I just want a piece of history.
 
Could you imagine me,
Rolling into the school parking lot with a tank?
I'd make all those trucks,
Ashamed.
 
Third, I go to websites,
To learn and do research.
No, I'm not looking up,
How to make a bomb.
 
I just want to learn.
There is so much to be known.
I want to learn about all of it.
War is so interesting.
 
But, really Mom?
Why would you say that?
I know you're never afraid to speak your mind,
But, that hurt...It really did.
 
That just makes me feel terrible.
Am I really that horrible?
I know the lower classmen fear me.
Thinking I'll be the next Hitler or Stalin.
 
I may be horrible, terrible, etc., etc..
But, it's just to make them,
Fear me.
This protects me from being pushed around.
 
Fear is my protection.
But if,
My mother thinks I'm a terrorist.
Maybe it's time to change...

Maybe

10/12/14
 
Maybe,
If I died at birth,
I would have been,
Replaced with someone better...
 
Maybe,
That person,
Would have been normal,
And accepted...
 
Maybe,
That person,
Would be liked,
Being himself and not worrying about it...
 
Maybe,
That person,
Wouldn't be a waste of oxygen,
Like me...
 
Maybe,
That person,
Would become someone,
Unlike me...
 
Maybe,
That person,
Would be loved,
Unlike me...
 
Maybe,
That person,
Would be great,
Unlike I...
 
Maybe,
The world,
Would be better off,
Without me...
 
Maybe,
If I had died at birth,
I would have been,
Replaced with someone better...

Lay It On Me

10/21/14
 
When you're on the edge,
About to take your final step.
Get down and,
Lay it on me.
 
When you're drowning,
About to take your final breath.
Come to the surface and,
Lay it on me.
 
When you're gasping for air,
About to exhale one last time.
Take a deep breath and,
Lay it on me.
 
When you're being crushed,
About to succumb to the weight.
Get out from under the mountain and,
Lay it on me.
 
When you've got a gun to your head,
About to pull the trigger.
Take your finger off and,
Lay it on me.
 
When you're falling,
About to hit the ground.
Spread your wings and,
Lay it on me.
 
Don't worry about me,
I'm already dead inside.
No need to thank me or even remember me.
Lay it on me...
 
Don't look back, just go on.
Don't think about me, you're far more important...
I can't be broken much more, let me die.
Lay it on me...
________________________________________________
Toy
10/21/14
 
I'm just a toy,
Something to enjoy.
A plaything,
Until I'm outgrown...
 
I'm just a toy,
Something to enjoy.
Play with my emotions,
Just like a toy...
 
You made my heart,
A piece of glass,
In a tornado,
Drop and watch me shatter...
 
Leave me broken and scattered,
As I try to pick up the pieces.
The glass stabs me and,
Makes me bleed...
 
Nothing more than a toy,
Just a plaything to enjoy.
Throw me away,
When you outgrow me...
 
Nothing more than a toy,
Just a plaything to enjoy.
Throw me away,
When I no longer take away the pain...
 
You made my body limp,
Nothing more than dirt.
Thrown away,
I hit the wall...
 
I then fall,
Down, until I hit the ground.
Left alone,
And to gather dust...
 
As I fade away,
As I am forgotten.
My heart begins to bleed,
And I slowly die...
 
I'm just a toy,
Something to enjoy.
A plaything,
Until I'm thrown away...
 
I'm just a toy,
Something to enjoy.
Find me disgusting,
Like a dead heart...
 
You called me trash,
A piece of filth.
Into the garbage,
Off to the dump...
 
I am left alone,
To die like any toy.
As I fade away,
I begin to sleep...
 
While I sleep,
First, hopeless dreams.
Second, unending nightmares.
Third, Death takes me...
 
I was just a toy,
Something to enjoy.
A mere plaything,
Until I was needed no more...
 
I was once white and pure,
Those days are long gone.
I am now stained red,
With the blood of my dead heart...
 
For I was nothing more than a toy,
Just a plaything to enjoy.
Throw me away,
When I no longer take away the pain...

Prayer of the Suicidal
10/21/14
 
This is a prayer,
A Prayer of the Suicidal.
Aimed at no one but,
Wished to be heard by anyone.
 
We pray silently.
With looks of sadness,
With scars on our wrists.
With tears of loneliness.
 
We try to speak but,
We cannot.
We are mute,
For we are afraid.
 
Afraid of being rejected,
Afraid of being targeted,
Afraid of being forgotten,
Afraid of being alone...
 
The Prayer of the Suicidal,
Aimed at no one but,
Wanted to be heard by anyone,
To be answered by anyone...
 
We just want to be heard,
For when we aren't...
We are never heard again,
Except in your head and nightmares...
 
If our prayer,
The Prayer of the Suicidal fails.
Then, we join the choir and sing,
The Hymn of the Pained...
 
This is a prayer,
A Prayer of the Suicidal.
Aimed at no one but,
Wanted to be heard by anyone...
 
To be answered by anyone.
Do not let the prayer go unheard.
For time is fading fast and,
We are as well...

The Quiet Ones
10-24-14

The ones that live in the shadows.
The ones whose eyes burn.
The ones who scream within.
The Quiet Ones.

The ones that have venom in their veins.
The ones that rattle their cages.
The ones that breath is cold.
The Quiet Ones.

Beware the Quiet Ones,
For there is no warning.
Their entire life is the calm before the storm.
They snap instantly.

They fall upon them,
Like an avalanche.
Destroying all in their way,
With righteous justice.

The Quiet Ones,
Make their enemies,
Suffer like they did,
Bleed like they did.

The Quiet Ones,
Make silence a sound.
It's becoming the screaming in your head,
If you're not lucky enough to be dead.

If a Quiet One breaks,
With no one around,
Do they make a,
Sound?

The ones that live in the shadows.
The ones whose eyes burn.
The ones who scream within.
The ones whose hearts bleed.

The ones that have venom in their veins.
The ones that rattle their cages.
The ones that breath is cold.
The ones whose bodies are numb.

Beware the Quiet Ones,
For they've just begun.
Beware the Quiet Ones,
For there is no warning.

What's the point of even writing if you're met with silence? What's the point of drawing if you're met with silence? You work and put your heart into these things and all you receive is silence. I know I write about touchy subjects and you may be intimidated to say anything, but for the love of GOD! Say something! Anything! I'm losing my by Sully's mustache mind. Everyday I come closer to the edge. Everyday I hate myself more and the edge is getting thin. You know why people break? You want to know why people snap? It's because of silence. That's it. They break because no one says a thing! They are left to their suffering with no help, no caring words. They just give up and slowly fade to nothingness in the background. They cry for hours, they cry themselves to sleep, they cry till it hurts. Then, they snap. They kill themselves so that they no longer need to be nothing. People only say something after the fact. Guess what? It's too late. He/she is already dead and only for a short time they will be remembered. After that short time, they're forgotten entirely. You want to know how to prevent this? SAY SOMETHING. Anything by Sully's mustache it. Words cannot replace a person. No matter how hard you try. I would know, and I'm the reason she's dead. Alright, I know it's scary, I know it's dark, I know it's depressing, but this is someone's LIFE! Is your silence worth another's life? Is it? I don't think it is. It never is, it never will. Suicide is such a huge problem because we let it. When you neglect someone like that, leaving them to their suffering without saying a thing, that's what causes suicide. It's the silence, and the suicidal take that as, "No one gives a damn about me. Why continue living when no one gives a crap?" The answer is simple for them, "It's not." I've been keeping this in for far too long. Now if you've read this far, just think. Is a human life worth your silence?

Silence is My Voice

10/24/14

 


Don't scream at me.

Don't you dare yell.

I won't say anything,

Because you never wanted to hear me.

 


Once again you're angry,

Over a single thing.

You want me to speak,

Don't waste your breath.


Always in the shadows,

Of a much better sibling.

Don't tell me you care now,

You haven't before.


When I was younger,

I tried to speak...

But, none listened.

Why start now?


I become quieter.

I began to listen more.

You didn't notice,

None of you did.


I seem to be becoming mute.

I see my voice being useless.

Might as well have been voiceless.

No one would notice.


I don't talk about my emotions,

With my voice.

Only through writing,

Only through poems.


Don't scream at me,

I don't speak,

Because you never cared,

Before.


Just leave me be,

You've waited to long,

To care to hear my voice.

Silence is my voice...

Vocab Poem

11-06-14



I used to resilient.

I used to be strong.

I used to be happy.

Now, not as much.



Life is so bland.

Everything is so uninteresting.

Everyday I have a,

Chagrin.



I used to flourish,

Now, I'm drowning.

Down, down, down...

Into the deep black sea.



I feel like such an,

Anomaly.

Never seem to be,

Understood.



I guess that's my nature,

Maybe I'm being intrinsic.

You can't control nature,

For it has the strength of a hurricane.



I just want to,

Rectify.

I want everything to be,

Like it was before.



I want someone,

To commiserate in my pain.

Someone to understand,

What I've been through.



Take a hiatus,

From this life.

Watch me transcend,

Into heaven...

Disease
11/14/14

I guess I'm a disease,
Based on the way you look at me,
With your all seeing eye,
Piercing my insides.

There is nowhere to hide,
From your eye.
But, maybe,
It's not me.

Maybe,
You need to see,
With a different set of eyes.
Maybe you're the disease.

Please Kill Me
11/25/14

Please kill me,
Just let me die.
I don't want to open my eyes,
Ever again.

Rip out my heart,
Because it's already dead.
Not like I had one before,
That's what everyone tells me.

Remove my mind,
Because I never had one.
That's what my father,
Always tell me.

Cut out my tongue,
Because no one heard me.
I'm already speechless,
Might as well had been voiceless.

Just erase me,
Because no one wanted me anyway.
I don't want to exist anymore,
I'm just a waste of space.

Please kill me,
Just let me die.
I don't want to open my eyes,
Ever again.

No one would miss me,
Because no one says otherwise.
For you,
Silence is truly silent.

For me,
Silence has a voice.
It is composed of so many things,
Creating a great symphony.

Silence screams.
As thousands let loose.
Finally opening their mouths,
To finally be heard.

Silence wails.
As thousands succumb.
Letting the pain out,
To finally feel peace.

Please kill me,
Just let me die.
I don't want to open my eyes,
Ever again.

I want someone to end me,
I no longer want to breath.
There's no point, we're all going to die.
Why not now?

Don't say you'll miss me,
For none of you said anything.
You know everything,
EVERYTHING.

Yet you don't say a,
Damned thing.
You know my pain,
You know what I'm going through.

Why am I even writing this?
I know you read this,
Yet none speak.
Huh...

Fitting isn't it?
The one who's pained,
Is screaming out.
Yet no one wants to answer his cries.

The ones who are fine,
Are afraid.
Funny...
But, what about me?

Forget it,
I don't want to hear it.
Wait,
I won't...

Please kill me,
Just let me die.
I don't want to open my eyes,
Ever again.

Someone please,
Drive a blade right through,
My dead heart.
I want to bleed this useless life away.

Someone please,
Cut me a thousand times,
All over this wasted body.
I want to finally feel numb.

Someone please,
Fire into me,
I want to feel myself fade away.
I want to become like dust.

Someone please,
Push me into the water,
I want to slowly feel Death closing in.
I want to slowly fade away.

Someone please,
Kill me, just let me die.
I don't want to open my eyes,
Ever again...

So, I've got 4 poems. Here.

 

Fury

12/11/14

 

Deep within me,

There is a,

Blood boiling,

Fury.

 

No way I can,

Become calm.

We've gone past,

Critical Mass.

 

The monster,

Has broken out.

As the Other Side of Me,

Takes over.

 

Stay away,

I don't want you danger close.

Don't be brave,

I wish no harm to befall you.

 

I'm sick of the pain,

I'm sick of the tears.

It's not fair that some of the kindest people,

Have such feelings like I.

 

We were there for you,

When no one else was.

We never gave up on you,

Even when you did.

 

You left us to die,

When you were anew inside.

Now, we hide,

As we die within.

 

Now, we've been twisted.

The cage is broken,

The wall has fallen,

And the chains are loose.

 

There's a deep hate within,

Holding me tight,

Like some sort of master,

I can't seem to disobey.

 

Stay away,

I don't want you danger close,

Due to you,

Making me this way.

 

For there is no way,

For calmness.

Critical Mass has past,

A long time ago.

 

Don't know how long I'll last,

But, I'll outlast you.

You heartless creature,

That sucks away other's happiness.

 

For deep within,

There is a,

Blood boiling,

Fury.

Suppress, Never Express

12/17/14

 

No...

Not again...

Suppress,

Never express.

 

I don't want,

This to happen again...

Suppress,

Never express.

 

I promised myself,

It'd never happen again.

Suppress,

Never express.

 

I feel like I'm falling again,

But, I said I'd never let that happen again.

Suppress,

Never express.

 

Banging my head against the wall,

Angry at myself.

Suppress,

Never express.

 

Why did I allow,

This to happen?

Suppress,

Never express.

 

 

Conflicted inside,

With the feelings I hide.

Suppress,

Never express.

 

I have fallen,

For someone I couldn't have.

Suppress,

Never express.

 

Keep quiet,

She must never know.

Suppress,

Never express.

 

Why must I,

Fall every time?

Suppress,

Never express.

 

Every time I assist,

I can't resist.

Suppress,

Never express.

 

Wait for these feelings to die,

But, I know they never will.

Suppress,

Never express.

 

I must suppress,

These feelings.

I must never express,

For this is my fatal flaw.

 

For I am conflicted inside,

With these feelings I hide...

Suppress,

Never express...

Promise Me

12/21/14 23:46

 

Promise me,

You'll try to,

Leave everything behind,

Just let such things die.

 

I know you're in such pain,

And loneliness is high,

But, the end is nigh.

Light will reign.


Promise me,

You'll believe me,

And yourself,

I will show you.

 

I know you think you're a horrible person,

But, we are quite similar.

Just believe me,

You are better than you think.

 

Promise me,

You'll keep letting me,

Help you,

Through such trials.

 

I know you think you're burdening me,

But, 'tis not so.

I gladly forsake myself,

For others that deserve it.

 

Promise me,

You'll believe,

That I care,

And you deserve it.

 

You may think I care too much for you,

And this may be true.

But, how can't I?

I won't let you die.

 

Promise me,

That you'll believe me,

I have been honest,

In all my doings with you.

 

I have never lied,

Nor will I deny I have cried.

Please, believe me,

Let me care, let me carry.

 

Promise me,

You'll let me continue,

To help you,

I cannot step away.

 

Do not push me away,

Like others have before you,

I wish not to be forsaken and,

I won't let it happen again...not again...

 

Promise me,

My Friend,

That you won't push me away,

'Cause I'll never forget you.

Strange Attraction

12/22/14 00:06

 

I don't know,

I may be the only one,

But, I've got this,

Strange Attraction.

 

Don't ask me why,

Or how,

But, I've got this,

Strange Attraction.

 

Always the same process,

Always the same way.

Whenever I assist,

I can't resist.

 

I've got this,

Strange Attraction.

Where I always fall,

For those I help.

 

Every time I reach out,

And try to help another.

I always fall for who,

I'm fixing.

 

I don't know why,

Or how,

But, I've got this,

Strange Attraction.

 

I find it impossible,

To not fall for someone,

You care so deeply for,

It's impossible to me.

 

I guess you can say,

Pain and sadness,

Along with longing and loneliness,

Is my Strange Attraction.

 

I just fall for whoever,

I try to mend.

You care so much,

For this person, It's impossible not to fall for them.

 

I don't know,

But, I find pain beautiful.

Through, such care,

Mutates into love.

 

If I care so,

Deeply,

It evolves into,

Great love.

 

I guess,

You can say,

This is my,

Strange Attraction.

 

I don't know,

Can't explain,

But, I've got this,

Strange Attraction.

Two new poems for ya.

 

Butterfly

12/24/14 21:07

 

Deep within me,

Butterflies sprout and fly,

Whenever I talk to you,

Which I can't deny.

 

Those Butterflies,

Love to fly,

Making my insides,

Feel inside out.

 

I can't deny,

You cause Butterflies,

To spawn,

Within me.

 

I told you,

Of my Butterflies,

I couldn't deny,

I had to try.

 

You have no Butterfly,

Nothing flies.

At least I tried,

That, I can't deny.

 

Now I want this Butterfly,

To die.

I have already tried,

And I was denied.

 

I have no anger of you,

For I am unhurt.

I will not cry,

Nor will I fly.

 

A Butterfly sprouts and flies,

Whenever I talk to you,

This I won't deny,

Now please die.

 

Dear Butterfly,

Die!

'Cause I already tried,

And I was denied.

Farmer Boy

12/24/14 21:21

 

Farmer Boy,

Born to work,

As money was low,

Nothing to show.

 

Went to school,

Education to surpass,

Your parents,

You deserve so much more.

 

Juggling farm work,

And school work.

No time for fun,

For the work was never done.

 

As you grew older,

From boy to man,

Work called and,

School ended.

 

Only managing an,

Eighth grade education.

But, grades so high,

This cannot be denied.

 

Nothing but a simple,

Farmer Boy,

Until you were called,

To war.

 

1940 had come,

Time to answer,

The call of duty,

Serve your country.

 

Joined the Army,

9th Infantry Division,

60th Anti-Tank Company,

Spotter of the 57mm gun.

 

You were the eyes,

Of Death.

Watching those Germans,

Die.

 

Joined the Army,

9th Infantry Division,

60th Anti-Tank Company,

Maintainer of the radio.

 

You were the ears,

Of Death.

Listening to your command,

Allowing you to take a stand.

 

Joined the Army,

9th Infantry Division,

60th Anti-Tank Company,

Driver of a half-track.

 

You were the hands,

Of Death.

Towing that 57mm gun,

For which you were the eyes.

 

For five years,

You served.

From 1940 to 1945,

From beginning to end.

 

Returned home,

From 7 tours.

From North Africa,

To Central Europe.

 

Farmer Boy,

No longer.

Returning Veteran,

You are.

 

Farmer Boy,

How I love you so.

I'll never forget you,

Grandfather.

There's certainly a lot of emotion you're expressing here.  I especially enjoyed reading your more positive works, like honoring your grandfather or supporting your friends.  Often, just giving substance to explain what we're going through can help us get through it.

 

Also, not to be trite, but "Suppress, Never Express" immediately made me think of this:

 

Spoiler

 

Just putting that out there. ;)
