The Window


22 Nov, 2016 09:16 PM
Sometimes I sit and stare out my window,
when life is in despair.
I go to that window when I feel depressed,
but no one is aware.
Everyday, I stare at the trees and the birds and the sky,
to escape from a world of unhappiness.
I press my forehead against the glass and sigh,
"Why does life have to be like this?"
I gaze out the window at the twinkling stars,
all is far away.
I wish I could be up there with them,
but instead, I'm stuck here everyday,
with nothing but my window.

~Darkness Descends~

Jeanie Leyba

Another night closes in
Darkness descends down
Smothering, suffocating,
Drowning me once again

In my deep depths 
Of dark despair
Breaking my spirit
Leaving me shattered

Consumed with pain
I'm completely broken

~Relief Into The Abyss Is Me~

Jeanie Leyba

Let me go, set me free of this 
Paralyzing sickness that has
Taken complete control of me

All this pain I carry eating me alive
All this rage I feel the blackness
That drowns me, suffocates, suffocates, 
I'm choking in this poisen that is destroying
Me, consuming every breath I have left

Let me go, set me free, release me
I don't want to fight anymore

On a hot,
a woman suddenly
appeared before me,
quite unexpectedly.
She stood in front of me,
right at our Sun's light

~My Paradise~

Jeanie Leyba

05 Dec, 2015 03:21 AM
My heart it aches
The tears fall like rain
My soul is empty
My pain consumes me

I'm always drowning
In my deep dark despair
Struggling to breathe
I'm suffocating again

I'm numb from the wounds
Lost in the black mist in my world

If only

Ink, paper, and a pen

17 Aug, 2015 10:49 PM
I always wonder how does it feels to fall in love again
After all the hurts and the pain
Is there still a rainbow after the rain?
Or will i be stuck forever in vain?

Days have gone, but then i met you
I've never expected that you would say you like me too
It just started with a joke "will you text me?"
But theres really something in the way you look at me :)

Can this be love, i dont really know
But the feelings lifts me like beautiful flowers filed in a row

Island of Grief

Camille Chandler

Grief keeps it's own record of healing
no one or anyone can feel your deepest pain
One can walk beside you
but never within the walls of your suffering heart
One can listen...and offer their ..."I am here for you"
One can pray...for the life you grieve is the one that is 
shared by many

but as you walk on your soulful is yours alone
you take that weak moment and make it strong
you take a sorrowful situation and douse it with a happy life event
you take those tears of sorrow...and dampen the mouth of someone who thirsts

Is it so hard to decipher the poorly encrypted code placed on my face?
"I'm tired" "I'm just tired" "I'm fine, I'm just fucking tired"

Is this so believable that you're left with nothing to inquire? 
Or is there something less forming, some lack of desire? 
The thoughts in my head are swarming, that no one is caring.

I always get left behind, there's just me being lonely and alone.
"It's OK, I'm really fine. It's just hard to sleep when I'm at home."
Just a second glance, it's all that I ask.

I'm at the brink of tears, I need some help before my skin tears.

I know that it will be my last


03 Oct, 2014 05:56 AM
She smells like the sands of time
And is funny without ever being mean
I know that she's a dime

But I can't stop this feeling
I got my bottle of Jack
Then there's a sudden bleeding
In this abrasive room of black
I create a certain kind of seeing

Maybe I should care

Wailing Souls

Lasaro J

09 Mar, 2014 04:53 AM
I want to cry, but am laughing instead
Cause my heart cries, but my face conceals it
I want to wail, but instead I gag in silence
Cause my heart screams, but my gut chokes it 
I hurt deep, but am all smiles
Cause as my heart bleeds, but the mind blots it out
I want to go, but I can’t
My heart won’t let me.

I want to cry and am crying for sure
Cause my heart cries and the tears sting my eyes
