No One


No one will forget.
Forget the sight of me.
Because they can all see fall apart.

No one will cry.
As they watch me die.
Sometimes I wish they would.

No one will love me.
No one ever has.
No one will.

No one will ever see me smile.
They havn't in a while.
They never shall again.

No one will care.
As they see me break down.
So why should I care?

No one.
No friends.
Nothing.

No one will forget the day.
When I took it all away.
With just one bullet.

No one.
Will speak of that day.
My pain went away.

**Accident**
If only
You had seen
The stoplight,
Seen the
Red
Emanating from it.
If only
You had
Cared about people
Other than yourself
When rushing past
The stoplight
At sixty-five miles an hour
Without
Looking.
If only
The mother
Had Not
Been looking in the
Backseat, at her
Smiling,
Laughing,
Little
Six year old
Daughter.
If only
The mother
Had Not
Been so Carefree
As she stepped
On the pedal when
The light
Went
Green.
If only
That six year old girl
Had Not
Been sitting next to
The car door on
The right.
If only
Your perfect,
Brand new,
Black,
Sports car
Had Not
Rammed into
The right
Side of that
Misty
Blue
Minivan.
If only
That Little girl
Had Not
Fallen
Victim to your
Selfishness.
If only
You
Had Not
Seen the face of the
Little girl
Gazing out
The window at
The raindrops as you
Tried too
Late
To
Stop.
If only
That single mother
Got to say
Goodbye to her
Only child
Before your
Destruction
Tore
Her
Life
Apart.
If only
You really had a
Second chance
At everything
So you could
Prevent all that
You Have made
Happen.
If only
That little girl
Could
Rise from
The smoke
And be okay,
Still laughing,
Running,
To hug
Her crying,
Distraught mother.
If only
The impact on
The right side of that
Misty
Blue minivan
Had Not
Instantly taken
The Life of that
Laughing,
Innocent,
Six year old girl.
If only
The mother
Could stop
Blaming herself
For what she
Was Not
The cause of.
If only
You
Had
Seen that Red
Stoplight.
If only
Accidents
Did Not
Happen.
If only
The medics
Had
Come in time to
Drag you out of your
Wrecked vehicle and
Save
Your
Life.
If only.
If only.

Thanks :)
I mean, I have seen this happen...
It's sadder with someone you know.
And their 2 month old baby boy.

J.E. (jeklimek) May seem out of place, considering I wrote it in December and it fits better there, but I immediately thought of it when I saw the topic.



Trading Seasons


I watch lights and look at the view.
I ponder all wrapping of gifts
and wish that I could do it too,
but my life’s taken many shifts.

As rain poors down with no snowflakes
my eyes will increase its downpour.
Watching people using their rakes,
I wish it had been done before.

I would love to have that one dream
all sing about so constantly,
yet it would just increase the stream
of those tears flowing throughout me.

I miss that home I knew so well
and wish I had forgotten most
white land where snowmen rarely fell,
so they’d not haunt me as a ghost.

I love it!!!


message 9: by J.E. (new)

J.E. (jeklimek) Thanks. By the way, I liked the way those last to verses of yours seem to conflict yet work together.

It's what school does to someone.

Bisaya Reader (bisayareader) | 31 comments Stay
by Joel S. Andrada Jr.

I think I'll be delighted
if I knew I could assure,
the people who are suffering
can now open a safe door.

I wish they could breathe
what I breathe right now.
I wish I could see them
smiling somehow.

Though this heart of mine
felt something in doubt
I hope this vague feeling
will disappear in a single shout.

For I am scared and I regret
or what I've done, I will never forget.
Those things might be the reason why,
my heart and mind wondering to fly.

To fly might be the only way
to escape this world someday
But though I cannot forget to pay
The things Ive done, so Ill stay.

Stay and help for the end is unseen
Stay and change the way I've been.
Stay and prepare for what the future might face,
Stay and care to continue the human race.


message 12: by J.E. (new)

J.E. (jeklimek) I really liked that one. I particularly enjoyed the 5th verse. it might have even worked to end it there?


Cissi "Invisible but Invincible" (cissiinvisiblebutinvincible) | 104 comments Perspectives

In mind’s eye,
It’s clear,
I’m broken,
No more fear,

But my heart’s eye
Begs to differ,
With every dumb word
It whispers

How can you not hear me,
Stuck in the depths of my misery,
Screaming,
Crying,
Trying to get out of here,
How has this hate come to be?

Loving,
Lying,
Constantly denying,
All that we never were to see,

Fighting,
Cheating,
Stealing heartache,
Why do you always choose to flee?

From the night,
You give up the fight,
To crush out light,
Now dead to me.

message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

'I want'


I want to belong.
Belong in a place where hearts aren’t crushed,
Where tears don’t flow,
And where lives aren’t taken.

I want to live in a place where I wont get hurt.
Where I know I’ll see the light of day again,
Where I know I have a chance at survival,
Where I know that maybe I will and gladly punish myself.

I want to know that im innocent.
That I wont hurt myself,
That I wont hurt anyone else,
That I wont be the person I was.

I want to know that I’ll be forgiven.
Forgiven of all the hearts I broke,
Forgiven of all the lives I made unbearable,
Forgiven of those cuts and bruises on my arms.

I want to be strong.
I want to be strong enough to repair that which is broken,
I want to be strong enough to handle being on my own,
I want to be strong enough to love instead of hate.

More importantly, I want to change.
Change into that little angel your parents always love,
Change into the person who isn’t afraid to stand up for what she believes,
Change into the opposite of what I am.

message 36: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (agentsd) Every day I desire to change
My wants and my hopes aren't out of
The range
Of possibility
I keep promising myself
Not to put my dreams on a shelf
One day I'll live
Giving all I can give
To make my dreams reality
It would mean the world to me
To never conform to normality
I must live my life in
Individuality
I want to change
Every day
Finally I'll change
I'll change today
