About Me and My Poetry

I have been writing and drawing since elementary school. I used to write about things I couldnt talk about. Only like 2 other people were allowed to read my personal stuff. For everyone elsr I would listen as they spoke to me about difernet things they were going through and with their permission I would put myself in their shoes and write a poem for them. I always loved being able to express something for someone else. I know what its like when you cant quite say how you feel. Since about 11 years ago I have been more open and. None of my work is private anymore. I look forward to hearing what you all think of my lifes work :) I love writing and I hope to continue to write and to write better in the future. I think my best is yet to come. Im working on it. <3

Sometimes I sat and wandered off.
Gazing into the skies blue eyes.
I dove into a deep clear sea,

I'm just another whatever to you.
We're only together if I'm there with you.
Still looking for better, and I hope you find it too.

Locked in horns.
Two head strong beasts.
Who wants it more?

The stars bleed. 
Hearts beating light years away. 
By the time we see a drop, 
they've long passed away. 
Far away... 
We reach for heaven 
but we never arrive. 
Everyone's got to go, 
but we'll never get there 
alive. 
We strive through the struggle. 
We try even after success. 
We lie, pretend, and juggle, 
when all falls such a mess. 
Red, white, and blue blood 
splattered across the sky. 
The stars bleed. 
Hearts beating we never knew were alive.

Ever so confused.
Me and you, so the same.
Yet you see 'red' when I say 'blue'.
Only feel joy when I'm in pain.
I make you think it never rains,
but I storm inside.
You could have told me your feelings' changed.
Not that you tried to hide.
I guess it's my fault.
In fact, I'm rather quite sure.
Cause as it turns out
now I know what I deserve...
to lose your love to her.
I swear it hurts to breathe.
But if it's better for you
then forget about me.
I was a lousy lover anyway.
My nature is war.
When a man loves a woman
he wants someone he can adore.
So help me Lord,
I've got to fight the urge to stay.
Help me walk out the door,
before I turn around and break.
I've always looked forward to the end,
but hate the ending.
Hindsight is blind to logic,
my thoughts keep pretending.
Who will remember me?
He who could care less now?
When I'm gone and he sees
the first sign of clouds?
I blame myself.
if only to keep the pain from you.
I'd rather you love someone else
than my short coming's be seen and proved.
Ever so confused.
And much ado- about nothing at all.
Love is a trip 
when only one person falls.
