Joseph Merrick

Look there, that rock
Looming large and grey.
A jagged blemish
in this field of orchids.
God! Such beauty in that stone.

The Grain

Lying deep within the soul,
There is a grain of doubt
In all that's real.
Two plus two equals five
not three.

It's not edited. One hour of sleep. Just wrote it. Gotta vent it somewhere - going to a wedding in a few hours, while I'm dreaming divorce.


Lukewarm loverless

Unkiss me
Unlove me
Just unfucking touch me

You say you don't need me
That you'll always be with me
Don't fucking tease me
Go on fucking leave me

If you're going to touch me
Dig in
If you're going to love me
Breathe in

Hate me,
love me
Your kindness is torture
I know you don't mean it
I can see that you fake it

Give me a reason
To stay or hate you
It breaks me
Just take me

Give me emotion
This passive aggression
It's so rife with tension
I can't breathe
You smother me

I don't want to stay
Do I throw you away?

Make it savage
Baby, take me
I want to be ravaged
Make it rough
Make it hurt
This apathy's worse
Young lovers curse
We grew up

Why can't you listen
These words left unspoken
This half done love
It's left me whole broken

RE: Poets' Corner (Serious Poems)
I dropped my mirror today. I stared at myself in the broken mirror for ten thousand years searching for a single glimpse of the person I thought I was, and in that same fleeting moment I realized that in an attempt to save myself I lost the girl that I once knew. I sank down to the floor picking up the shattered pieces of mirror and screamed my silent hatred at the distorted girl in the reflection. My sorrow and regret slowly spilling from my eyes as I watched a drop of blood run down the palm of my hand and fall to the floor from my fingertip. I died a hundred million deaths in the realization that the girl I once knew...the girl I knew as myself...is gone forever and I am left behind. I am left behind, but who am I? Who am I, but a broken girl with no where to turn. And am I still here if you can't see me? Am I still real if you're not even looking anymore?


*I guess this doesn't really go here since it's not a poem, but I am a rebel*

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

Losty, I disagree. Hug I most definitely consider it poetry.

Totally felt it. Sadcryface

So, full disclosure. This song must have been the inspiration for the words to the poem I posted, it was unintentional.

"Unkiss Me" Maroon 5

If you respect me
Don't protect me
You can tell me, I can handle it
Stop pretending, cause we're going down
If you let go, then just let go
It's disrespectful how you've handled this
Never ending, kinda round around

I lie to my heart cause I thought you felt it
You can't light a fire, if the candle's melted
No you don't have to love me
If you don't wanna
Don't act like I mean nothing
But if you're gonna
Well, when you're better off

Unkiss me, untouch me
Untake this heart
And I miss this
Just one thing
A brand new star

Can't erase this, can't delete this
I don't need this, I can't handle it
I just feel it, that you're over us
If I wait here, if I see you
It won't matter, what's the point of this?
We're in pieces, because you're over us

I lie to my heart cause I thought you felt it
You can't light a fire, if the candle's melted
No you don't have to love me
If you don't wanna
Don't act like I mean nothing
But if you're gonna
Well, when you're better off

Unkiss me, untouch me
Untake this heart
And I miss this
Just one thing
A brand new star
Unkiss me
Unkiss me

Hug

Yours is better...

RE: Poets' Corner (Serious Poems)
So...I've been writing this poem for months. I've rewritten it about a million times. For the life of me I can't seem to properly express the emotions of being betrayed by a mother and finally having to let her go. I can feel the pain but I can't seem to get it to show as much as I think it should. If anyone has any advice. (*wink wink DLJ wink*) Also, I couldn't think of an appropriate title.


Porcelain white skin
I'm your baby, I'm your doll
"Hush now, don't cry
Momma never let's you fall"

Untouched unscathed
Girls are precious, innocent
"Hush now, don't complain
Girls should smile and be content"

Sixteen, don't hurt me
A godly man with a devilish grin
"Crimson stains, so much shame
Marriage will absolve your sin"

Seventeen, washed clean
I'm your baby I'm your doll
"Hush now don't cry,
God will never let you fall"

Porcelain white skin
Bloodstained and bruised
Sealed lips, secrets
Beaten and abused

Doctors frown, ultrasound
It's too late, nothing can be done
Tiny angel, pool of blood
He took away my son

Turn another blind eye
I'm your baby, I'm your doll
Nothing to hold on to
Left alone to fall

Innocence long gone
Tell me that I'm precious now
Can't wash away the scars you made.
Tell me that you love me now

Porcelain white skin
Broken and discarded
Your guidance lead me here
Left me lost and broken hearted

Porcelain white skin
Precious daughter left to die
Hush momma, I forgive you
But it's time to say goodbye

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

RE: Poets' Corner (Serious Poems)
I wrote this for my school's Latin American Student Union. I'm on the executive board as their publications editor:

Her children forced from barren breast
Were taken in the fight
Her sons gunned down for fruit and beans
They know at night he beats her

Her daughters fall down at her feet
Children not left to chance
She weeps for all that they have taken
They know at night he beats her

Brother cuts brother, even still
They call for revolution
When brothers throw reams of fire at each other
They know at night he beats her

She finds another lover to
Attend to what her children need
She goes from one and then another
They know at night he beats her

No matter what she’d find in love
All seek dominion still
It dare not change, they rob her blind
They know at night they’ll beat her
