Waiting....

I sit in the corner of my bed..
Wishing I was dead
I waited for you and you left me
You left me and took the love I saved for myself with you
You knocked down my walls just so you can see what I look like on the other side

I've waited for you
Staying up for days...
Wondering where you have been..
You asked if " I'm okay"
I lied to you and said everything is just fine

His Daughter

Ashley

She was behind a wall,
when she saw her father beat up her mom
She heard cries,
but soon found out it was her...
Her mother silent as mouse cried...
She watched as her father drew lines on her mothers back with a knife..

10 years later her father was gone..
She had no one to go to..
Her mother left her when she was six..
She grew up in a foster home
2 years after living in that home she ran away..

Skid Row

Okk

I used to have this dream years ago let me tell you though
it started with a smile and a wave on the patio,
then a flicker in the sky it showed a shadow.
but wait mum where'd you go I swear I just seen you though.
The sky would start to fall and I would scream but you were a no show.
Then my skin would slowly freeze as the world around me began to go.
Its okay I get it now seeing this tornado,
I'm nothing to you mum I guess this is like a puppet show.
Pick me up tear me down maybe I'm Dynamo,
ill fix myself up while you're drunk in the skid row,
Alone is how I'm feeling when I wake up and realise that I despise
the look in my eyes figuring out this nightmare is never gonna demise

My life

jazzy

There's monsters in my head, 
there's monsters in my mind.
Thought they were helping, 
thank you so much for being kind.

I've been shattered and battered,
my body abused and splattered. 
New mamma hates me,
even wishes she didn't create me.
New mamma's taking pills, 
real daddy's not here right now.

will this ever end

He is getting closer
Now he's on the stairs
I can hear The floor boards
As he walks across them
I hold my blanket tight 
He is at my door

The feeling of fear takes over
Will this ever end?
Every night this happens
Will he ever leave me alone?

Hush little sister

Hush, little sister
Please don't cry
I wish I could be there
To sing you a lullaby

I can see your arms
Bloodied and bruised
That's strange, little sister
Mine were like that too

I know you scream
When Daddy's there

I Am A Mess.

Faith Emily

Your touch lingers 
On the hollow base of my throat
The finger marks 
Fading into my neck to become 
A part of me. 

Your hands
Roughness upon my smooth skin
That you tainted with bruises
And kissed with your unfair and
All too forceful lips.

Trapped by his emotions

AJ

Broken promises, a broken soul.
Bruises heal, but inside never grow old.
Ease into it again, everything will be ok.
Next morning, long sleeves on a hot day.

Cruel irony, to now need the broken shades.
A shattered memory of a better day.
Cornered, trapped. Caged by her heart.
The one person who can piece her back together, 
only tears her further apart.

Sleek words slide out that suave mouth.

forever in her eyes

You've got a smile that sets the sun ablaze
A touch that anyone would crave
Your scent, that of an ocean breeze
Salty yet beautiful as it seems
But you know not of these things I write about
He's made you feel your nothing at all
With every razor sharp word
With every shattering blow
If only you knew your life is like poetry to me
It would flow so perfectly
Id love you like loves meant to be
Maybe someday you'll find I can make you happy

Get out

Emily

06 Sep, 2010 11:54 AM
I cant cry anymore tears
I cant speak up
I just sit on the floor and take the pain
The next morning i try to act like its all ok 
but people start to see what is really going on. 

One day i will get out but not today. 
When i am alone i scratch till there's blood. 
the warm blood starts dripping down my arm. 
People start to talk but i still act like its all ok.
Maybe one day i will get out... 
but not today
