I went down to the river, I set down on the bank. I came up once and hollered! I came up twice and cried! I took the elevator Sixteen floors above the ground.

I have written about poems. I have been published all three times I have submitted my work. I never really liked writing. I was off work with an injury and just wrote a poem and everyone liked it pretty soon I had a notebook full and they just kept coming. Some are happy some sad. I have been told numerous times I should publish a book of poems. For me it is one that someone likes. I have no style or training but I have poems hanging at a university. Does that make me an artist?
I guess it depends on who you talk to. In fact, I really love writing. Good Poem? One that is moving for the reader, even if it is only thyself.

In each, I noticed footprints. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints; other times there was only one.

Why, when I have needed you most, would you leave me? The times when you have seen only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you. God's Garden 2 God looked around the garden, and saw an empty space. Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free; I'm following the path God laid for me.
Tasks undone must stay that way. So, what is pain? Pain is A Name. No one ever asks his name, that man on the corner. Broken Reflection. Laughing back at me in the glass of a two sided mirror, A sinister clown inside of me that won't disapear. When feeling ugly If innocence were bottled up in human form, she would be the epistle within Her chestnut hair glistens underneath the I am like a ceramic bowl, and this bowl has many assets. Beautiful from a far, but up close you see my cuts, scars and Im Gone. On my desk there is a photo It was taken what seems like ages ago It seems like another vacation photo of friends See Me.
I touch but I cannot feel. I see but I cannot be seen. I speak but I cannot be heard. Numb Absence of Feeling Nothingness Inside My Mind. The pain which was gained from the emotions leaving a messy stain Thinking internally deep inside why must I go this route? Not Everyone. Prepare yourself, For this will not be ordinary. To express the way I feel Is to look upon the people of this earth with a My Dear Friends Spirit. I place the weight of my body onto a jagged rock on top of a mountain. With my head turned to the left, the breeze brushes How it feels to be Abused.
It was all getting better, everything was going away. But they all came back to taunt me, kept me awake at night. Life has large mountains and long painful roads. A road we hope will give us Take A Step Back. I see the man sitting on the park bench, homeless with nothing left to claim. I see all the people on the side-walk bad Who are you? Who are we? Who should we ask? Who should we tell? Who's going to listen, when we can't Sarah tied together with a bow.
Her world held together with a string Rather our world, As we sit twenty across and forty back Red bows in our hair, We The Shadow Tale. This tale is unknown, only what is told. This is the tale of the Shadow world. It is a place unmarked, You Are Not. You came home from school You said your day was fine You rush to the bathroom, slid your back down the wall as your skin Society Killed the Kid. Am I skinny enough society; Now that I puked up lunch? It feels much better than it did, When I was being punched.

My Life, my one true love, The one thing that makes me happy to wake up to every morning. My uncontrollable consistency, the Collecting Me. Tick-Tock, Goes the clock. Tick-Tock, It doesn't stop. Tick-Tock, Time is running out.

Dude, you know I was raped, right? Not so long agoIn a land closer than it seemsThere lived a silly little girlWith a pocketful of dreamsShe was as hated as You long to scream, But you have no voice. You hope you can fight, But Smooth, Warm Orbs. This whisper creeps up on me, the selfishness taking over once again, perhaps for the Last Words. You may have lost yourself, But not me. I'll always have you in my memories.
But now, you have family and friends there for I am different So they hurt me I refuse to conform So they hate me I am myself They do not understand I begin to hate myself Blast From the Past. It's been years, Years since I've wroten a poem. My freshman year in High School, That's all I would do. When I got home The Same Routine. I guess I'm hopeless in a sense; With held back tears and tight clenched fists. Unable to tear down my wall. My "strength" I Write for Life. I lived as a child.
I grew with my mother's love and my father's protection. I wasn't "right" in the school's perspective of I Darkest thoughts Brightest smile A facade well seen, a unearthed orchid oh so shy. Feeling of a ungraceful prescence but Finally it's me. I look up, trying to see to see what it could be. I see nothing, nothing looking back at me Mirror, mirror on the wall, I'm a bookworm so I've read varies genres of books. You live your life in a haze Your parents believe it is just a phase But it is too late: you've already turned to the blade Sex, drugs, and alcohol consumed by an unsuspected daughter Lost and cold, living no tomorrow.
Feeling voids from another Kitten In A Jungle. Soft little kitten, not quite yet a cat. Sick of the secure and warm caring lap. Wanted to explore and do things on his own The Fear of Truth. Paper and pen, why do you stare? My heart gripping like a snare. I spill like a punctured balloon writing all of my cares Going Through To The End. I'm okay with death.

And yet, it is freer than the wind, than the galloping sea. Than you The Music Will Kill Me. My sister is a musicianWho plays only out of sight. While everyone else is sleeping,She makes melodies in the night. Simply Not Simple. More Than You Know. Big Brown eyes filled with mischief and excitement Eyeballing me from a distance, trying to decide the best way to sneak You stand there, taking deep.
You stand there, taking deep breathes. What Does It Feel Like? What does it feel like to be dead? Is it cold? What does it feel like to exist? Do you get to look The Power of Words. Her smile Was a blooming flower A shining star Evoking happiness, beauty, and love At age 13 She was told her teeth were too Underneath This Smile. What lies behind her smile? No one really knows the secrets locked away in her heart.
She smiles all day never missing a I was the one who would be someone she was not, Who was afraid to talk back, Who was used to being stepped on, And now is Grasping onto life, but my hands grabbing for a knife. Loneliness and Stay Alive. When You're Suicidal. My sanity.
My sanity is all I need. Being alone and all on this deserted island. I need reasurance that I still have myslef. I need to Im not allowed to say that in class?

You saw me in my time of need, saw that I was a mess. And soon the doctor said indeed, that yes, I am depressed. Within my heart lay a gap that I cannot fill A gash within my emotions that lay unhealed This wound inflicted bleeds deep The ground was cold beneathe my feet. Where was this place. The soil Where do i belong? I live in a house, not a home with people who are my family, but not there for me my only love is keeping my ties to this The Pertaining of Life.
Life always takes its own toll-- ticking away at the hand of the clock, The minutes, the seconds all priceless; and all so Stand or Watch. My heart sings the words Of my soul It feels all my weeknesses It hears all my screams It tastes the chalking of my blood It Killing Faith. Stop and think about what you are doing, This time you feel like it's the end of the line. Please don't do it please, You Everyday it consumes me. It breaks me down, eating away at my soul. I remember everything.
The good memories, the bad Bridges are such high places, As high as the eye can see. Wondering if I should jump, Life will no longer be. There are many Life is always a dream But until something happens, a dream will never be reality Life is hope But until you need it, hope I Chose.
Faced with the inevitable truth Unavoidable , Life changing Immaturely faced with the irreversible option of Death TO end I responded with silence. Who is she to want to help? Loneliness is a silent killer. It lingers in the darkness, Amidst shadows of remorse. Under feelings of joy, Behind eyes of You'd Never Guess. You'd never guess how far you'd go To gain a freedom you've never known. All it takes is that right preson, the right way To Synonym for Suicide. There is no synonym for suicide. Drink away the pain till you see the dawn of day. Hope was just a string, but it was so thin A little girl, I watch fade away The red in her hair and the teeny tiny scars on her wrist remind me so much of myself And The End.
Valerie I look down on me and see myself laying there helplessness and cold and I begin to realize how realize how real this Their screams bleed mean hidden behind their awful smiles nobody sees. Not everyone falls in love the same way, nor do they fall in love at the same time. But this is about that one fateful day Thank You. Just one step and…gone Maybe in an instant Maybe after a few minutes Gone Maybe it will be like the movies My own home The two of us have switched places Despite what you see I've become my brother and he is really me I've never been funny, Rain becomes tears All day it rains And if the day seems good The darken cloud still hangs around It hovers over your head The Remains Of My Mistakes.
Lament of Today's Teens. Welcome to my world! Would you like to meet my friends? They're on my left wrist, and they're scabby and red. Do oyu know The tension builds as I feel the ripples course through my skin, bones heavy bound by chains and blood still as wine My Conscience Tempts. I don't want it. I just wish, that everyone will stop saying, "It's my fault" "It's all my fault". How come they're I wake up, 5 am as usual I get ready for the torture ahead I arrive at school I walk down the hall to my first class I sit Fatality Love.
My Dreams are Haunted by the sight of you Screaming and Crying at my reflection thinking Why did our everlasting love This Feeling of Depression. I have a pain so deep you'll never see I locked it away and hid the key. If I ever really could share it You wouldn't look The Struggle was Real. Unable to socialize had a hard time fitting in Never seem to get noticed even by smallest living thing.
Used to look in the My Guardian Angel. I met a boy once who was playful and adventurous. He always sought trouble but was every parents dream. I befriended a boy What Your ID? Whats Your ID? No not the card in you wallet or purse. But your Heart Attack. Read Later.

Still, we might as well appreciate the Being in love is a terrible thing. Could not go out,Could not have fun. My Closet. My closet is a tree curling into a question mark around me. My closet is a safe haven for the truth on my breath,the words Light Within Darkness. What is this I'm doing? Falling from a building? Left and right building move swiftly around me Below the hard surface Your body's getting cold, your lips are turning blue.
We are not Titans-- we are Humans. I am sorry. I am so sorry. The smiling child you once knew is no more. Star light eyes eyes that light the future have been Labels Which Is Better? The one with the tears climbing on the weathered skin. The one with Forever Gone. As you walk away I fell to my knees, Your eyes were my sky Your hair was my sun. October 3, What do you do when you cant do no more?
Sink to the ground and put your head on the floor? You can't turn back time and you Although I didn't know you, I hear your name mentioned all the time. I think you should know how much you're missed, You Early Bloomer. A Heart Grown Cold. I laugh, I talk, There's a lightness when I walk. I scowl and glare, Show my As I speak I wish I did not, and when im blue music is my elixir. It heals my wounds Thimbles and Fairy Dust. Peter Pan. Peter Banning. A lost boy, lost to himself.

The weather is gloomy. It hangs in the air, Its unpredictable patterns, Remind me of someone that I hold dear, My best Final Fantasy. Blood and sorrow falls as do I for as long as I can remember Hidden, heavy kept secrets as I am invisible forever I've built To Escape. They are blind to the love he gives, Deaf to the tears I cry, Mute to the words of I wonder does it help do the scars make me braver does the pain makes me stronger my emotions make me better when I take it I remember looking out the window Save Me From Myself.
I am standing, Standing in a crowd screaming, Screaming at the top of my lungs But no one seems to hear, And if they do, Don't do it. We love you. You harming yourself, isn't going to help you. It only hurts you more. They are the scars, Shadow Bird. He haunts me. Like a ghost, my husband haunts me. The red-tailed hawks that cry out over head taunt me mercilessly. That was Lost Goodbyes. And there were days where I was jealous of the moon, For she heard the cries and the secrets that spilled from your My Life.
I am scared to look at life beyond now It is time to cut my flesh so it can take a vow To never let a piece of metal Defy Until I Walk No Longer. That runway that I walk down? I own it, With my lab coat and my ibuprofen Because I walk for a living I must have a whit of Who Cares its over. Who would care if you end it? When would you tell me you wanted to die? Broken hearted, Ruby rivers flow Sleepless nights, People walk around as they laugh as the others stand in alone as if a polygraph test that the "others" takes blinks and Looking in the mirror wondering what am I looking at What do I see?
How do I feel? Will there be change in the way I look? Be The One Who Cares. I read somewhere that every 16 minutes give or take a few seconds a suicide is commited. What a fact, huh? What If Between Life and Death. I walk the halls alone, hearing giggles from "Innocent" girls, foul language from the "Bad Boy" crowd, and smooches from the Unfortunately I've lost the light I lost the way, to the gracious skin of your loving heart What happen to my life.
The girl with the broken eyes. She says she feels alone in crowded roomsFakes a smile that is consumed by gloom. A consumption of pills are swallowed with Get back up and fight. There were so many sleepless nights, days where you'd lie in bed, and hardly even bother to see the light.
