What Matters To Me
(I won a poetry competition with this and had it published. Hope you like it!!)

What matters to me,
Is honest and true,
They are things that I love,
I don’t know about you.

Books nice and thick,
With an engrossing story,
I prefer love and adventure,
Rather those which are gory.

To read in the shade,
Beneath the trees,
Sunlight all around,
And the occasional breeze.

To play the piano,
With its black and white key,
This is another thing,
Which matters to me.

It is not a tool,
But an extension of my hand,
We are the same,
Like how the shell becomes sand.

Family as well,
I love them so dear,
Some live far away,
But others live near.

Friends also,
With games and fun,
We work well together,
Like the rain and the sun.

Nature with creatures,
Plants and flowers,
But over its beauty,
Are fearsome powers.


With war and legends,
Comes history too,
But are all events,
Actually true?

With this we get mystery,
Learning and invention,
But there is one more thing,
I have yet to mention.

A thing,
That matters most to me,
Is doing just this,
Writing poetry.

Thanx, it's also quite a good way of introducing myself as everything about it is true.

Mockingjay  | 6 comments This is a poem I wrote using my favorite book titles-


Beneath the Pages

I wait for The Dead Tossed Waves
to carry me away,
to times where the need
to Quiver is faint
or Torment doesn’t wait,
when it comes to a fight to the death
The Hunger Games is the sand
slowly drifting away,
in the Hourglass
of time and Fallen memories,
leaving the search
for The Mortal Instruments
an uneven battle,
as The Hollow hole in my stomach
leads The Season of Risks
to be Tempted to take hold
of the Beautiful Darkness
to be the Awakening of a thousand scars
that is Burned,
taken by The Poison Eaters,
not even the Stargazer
can take hold
of the Virals who control this world,
so Don’t look behind you,
for even though it is just a book
life as we know it
may unfold
like the coarse edges
of a dangerously, darkly gorgeous fantasy
awaiting beneath a rocklike cover.

message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

This is untitled..if you have an idea let me know ^O^ and forgive the spelling

I'm lying in the closet,
with my heart out on the floor,
I'm trying to keep your fleeting spirit,
from flying out the door.
My day dreams keep me broken,
and my nightmares keep me warm,
but my soul is still in peices,
and my life is being torn.
If I keep on waking,
to your silent screams for death,
I might just take it from you,
or give what I have left.
I'm still lying in the closet,
with my heart out on the floor,
I'm loosing your fleeting spirit,
and its flying out the door,
your silent screams for death,
they keep me up at night,
but if I give you what I have,
I might just loose this fight,
I can't give into you,
I'm all that I have left,
and staying with you now,
can only bring me death.


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

You leap into danger undefended and come back to me bloodied,
but a smile on your face,
your so stupid,
a careless child,
but you brighten my lonley life,
I will never tell you this,
you'd only laugh,
but I still care,
even when you left,
I felt so betrayed,
knowing it was for the best,
I still cry out in fear and in atonishment in what you've accomplished without my help,
I hate you,
and love you at the same time,
although you'll never come back and be fully mine,
you still keep your presence near,
and you'd only laugh if you knew,
but I still care,
behind this angry mask I wear,
I cry out in fear and atonishment,
you leap into danger undefended,
thinking with your heart first,
it scares me,
but you come back with a smile on your face,
your a careless child,
but I still love you.

Social freak? I think not
We gonna kick you off this lot
Take your f*in pills and go get distraught
But don’t come around here trying to burn this lot

Fizzling with anger, rage and genocide
What’s wrong? Makes you wanna commit suicide?!
Come on baby, try and make me cry
Ain’t gonna happen no matter how hard you try

Our race is strong. Pierces like a bullet
We strike hard and don’t take bullshit
“Stop please; stop Spike, before you pop”
What’s wrong, bitch, I ain’t gonna till I drop.

(Chorus)

Social freak? I think not
We gonna kick you off this lot
Take your pills and go get distraught
But don’t come ‘round here trying to burn this lot

We like the mafia, (pause) hard to find
We come up at you from far behind
Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Niki all in the fight
Trying to show the world that it’s gonna be all right

So here’s my stand, taking my chance
Gonna show the world who I really am
You don’t like it? Spike says “take a trip”
Cause you know what? Really, I don’t give a flying s***

(Chorus)

Social freak? I think not
We gonna kick you off this F*in lot
Stop trying to destroy our freaking plot
Take your f*in pills and go get distraught
But don’t come around here trying to burn this lot


So take your f*in pills and go cry in your corner
Who cares? No one its all in the order
You the verdict, we the judge
No one will let you escape this grudge

Scars down my wrist
Because of Him
Three dark red
But I don't blame you.

You didn't pressure me,
I wish I could say you did
You liked me for my body
Or so I thought.

A scar on my stomach
Deeper than the rest
I can still feel the pain
It's ironic when I did it.

I was too young
I still am
And soon after we broke up
I swore it was the end.

So why do I still obsessively check
My phone for yours texts?
Why do I put little hearts <3
When I text goodnight?

Why do I let you hurt me
In every way possible?
Why do I play your game
Every single day?

I'm clouded by my feelings
You're clouded by the lust
I just pretend that's not why
And everything's okay.

I'm yours

You might think that I'm annoying
It's just because I care
You might want me to be gone
But I'll always be there.

I know you appreciate me,
When you are yourself
It's at those times
My insides start to melt.

But you change your mind
Whether you mean to or not
You love me one minute
But the next its gone.

It hurts me to see
The way you suffer
You don't do anything about it
Just put up with the pain.

I would make you better
If I could
You tell me to help
But what do I do?

If you need to I'm here
You can take it out on me
Because ultimately
I'm yours.
