    Im so lost you have always told me you'd be here but where are you now!!! My screams cant u hear!? I thought i loved you with everything i had I gave you my all oh and i forgot to add you took my heart from my grasp Between your fingers around my heart ur fingers clasped U tricked me said u'd never leave oh ya we'll be together forever... Look at me now, look how i grieve! Can u see the tears in my eyes? can u see me hide it can u see me hide my cries? Are you even looking to see if im ok? im hurt and u dont care my emotions are all astray but then you pick me up off the ground look at me with those eyes And i realize wow what the hell have i found! someone to love me for all i am treat me with care tho! Bc with one sentence BAM and i cant breathe anger and sadness cloud my vision and with madness i start to seethe You can send me spiraling down losing control real fast In my own tears watch me drown Remember to hold your head up high to always do whats right And dont be afraid to cry Never give in what the hell You decide whats a sin Be yourself and thats all pick yourself up whenever you fall always be strong they cant push u down Bc thats just wrong Lifes a gift not a given rite Dont give in to every rift pusj against the current make your own path Bc if it werent for you and you alone it wouldnt be this way They wouldnt have flown So live it the way u want be who u are And dont let them haunt This is your life live it with strife

    Nobody cared nobody even tried And you were oh so scared more scared than you have ever been helpless against this mans sin With no-one to go to Noone to help you get through You did it all on ur own You kept me safe You were my mom and my stone You gave me the love you never had Gave me what you hadnt known You were my mom and my dad You gave me everything you could Yet still i wasnt ok You did all in your power to make my life good You came from the depths of despair You made a choice And you were always there You did what your mom never did You took control Cuz your no longer a kid They cant hurt you You rose up and began to soar You loved me with everything you had From the begining you swore That we'd get what you werent given Someone to understand and care Someone to tell you all was forgiven Your heart is bigger than you know You will give everything you have and expect nothing in return To this day it continues to grow! Mommy im so thankful and glad i have you here You rose me right and i take for granted how much you endear You will always be the person you are the good the bad and the painful but you carry around ur past like a proud scar Your not afraid to be you you dont wanna be anyone else Your not scared of what you've been through I want to be that brave I want to not be afraid I want to be able to save myself from the dark and the frightening To run away and give your fears a mere wave Dont ever put youself down Mom you are one of the most beautiful honest good hearted people out there Because its obvious your one of the best kind of people around Without a doubt im glad your my mother We may have our quarells But there can never be another mom for me out there

    Poem i wrote for someone special ^_^ Why cant you see? Theres nothing else you should be! Its so strange for someone to genuinely care! To give me there love to share! Around you I tend to squeal I cant believe this is actually for real! You are anything but snooty And in me u see beauty! You don’t mind that im strange And you never ever want me to change You think im too good for you When I know its not true I don’t know how I got so lucky to be with someone so…wow I know you’ll be there when I cry Because your just that great a guy. You never sleep! You’re the one I gotta keep Why must we be so far apart You, I would let into my heart. I will never ask for much Only to know your touch Kissing my lips Your hands running down my hips I’d walk many a mile just to see your smile You make me feel sooooo special I bet to feel your kiss Would be total blisssss You make me feel good inside and out And without a doubt in my mind You the best damn thing im ever gonna find :)

    :) And to you the same. You deserve better than what this women is giving you. If she cant see the glory that you are, why even try i am trying to tell you that you are too good to dwell on her!! Do you know how many women ik would kill for a man like you?!?!?!?! Why waste your time. You deserve someone who will love you for you. Completely and truly. Relationships are like Relationships are like glass its better to leave it broken rather than trying to hurt yourself putting it back together... :)

    And what would basic cor faith? what if all christians are WRONG... what then? What about a goddess? Ever think of that? I believe anything if possible, i think once all the religions linked together and made the "one truth" meaning put together minus and add a few things and thats whats real. do you have a problem with that? :) I actually more or less believe in science lol

    Fierce. Cant push ME down. Cant make ME frown. Been a rebel all my life. Baby im full of strife. Cant make me go lame. I'll never be tame. I am who i am, thats just it. So if you dont like it, quit the pellet . I never hold back, not ever. I hide it well, but im real clever. When you feel your vision goin hazy. Babe thats me, makin you crazy. I may be ditzy but im not a fool. And to hell with acting cool. You could say im high fashion. My whole world is passion. Ill ask you why but im not into gettin high. Cuz for crying out loud. who cares whos in "the crowd" This is Ivy god damn this is exactly who i am like it? :) its pretty old >.<

    i think the use of vulgar/obscenities can actually detract despite the potential verbal force behind, if you could expand upon the idea to truly represent and create an euphemism in a way...sounds like alanis morisette

    right, you could read some Shelly or Keats, they're a little melancholy and romantic...british romanticism maybe be a genre you're interested...then you can move on to other topics

    you're certainly talented to expose your passions, but talent is nothing without practice, and you're doing some good practice just expressing yourself. so right, keep at it, but the best poets truly excel and expression and manipulating words to create new verbal experiences

    for example take the word you seem to use often, such as "strife," what do you mean by that? you must be referring to past actions and events, so maybe you can elaborate upon the events
