You, Your own

By taking off the mask, published on Nov 29, 2009

He stares in the mirror not sure who’s looking back Just a blank face that is covered in black, A smile is not spread across his face A grimace takes its place, Some make-up around his eyes He tries to see what’s inside, But his soul is dark As is his mind, He lets out a little smirk To show the world he is here, People point and stare But he doesn’t care, Being himself is all that matters He likes who he is So do his friends, They have a group who don’t need to all blend in Looking like society is the least of their priorities, Keeping a distance and not listening Is their motto, Having fun... (more)

the past follows you

By taking off the mask, published on Nov 28, 2009

theres a pain deep inside. although it trys to hide, its still stuck in your mind. if you see it, close your eyes, its something you would rather not find. it is so alive, but you want it to die, but it stays there on the side. it hunts you down, everytime bringing a frown. its like the color brown; a bunch of colors mixed together but its to late to fix, its all part of its fate. its served on a plate, and no matter how much you hate it, its still there. you try to throw it away, but it wont slip off the plate. you have no choise but to eat it, to deal with it. you feel it slime inside of you.... (more)

The UnWanted

By taking off the mask, published on Nov 27, 2009

I feel your hand in mine

“I think it's time”

you whisper in my ear

but fear creeps onto me

I don't agree

yet u pull me

u undo my blouse

button by button

and pull down my pants

my hands shake

this must be fake

why can't I just say no

when I know thats what I want to do

why can't you see

this isn't where I want to be

you ignore my pleas

and you enter me

I cry out

but you cover my mouth

you tell me it'll be okay

but life will never be the same

Don't tell me

By taking off the mask, published on Nov 26, 2009

It was a chilly night. The street lights were shining bright like they usually are at that hour of night. The clock hit 12:53, seven minutes to get home and make curfew but instead I walked into the building which stood before me. My phone rang once again and I ignored my mother's call once more. Eight missed calls in the last half hour. I refused to pick up the phone. Refused to hear the words that I feared to believe. I held down the END key on my phone, the phone shut off. I no longer needed to know the time, no longer did I want to. I held my phone tight in my fist. A tear ran down my cheek... (more)

Running Away from Everything

By taking off the mask, published on Nov 25, 2009

A cold memory I let enter my head

A memory I tried hard to forget

The cramps in my stomach get worse

They hurt so badly I force air into my lungs

I walk down my block it feels like miles

I turn up the street and sit in my favorite seat

the spot right under the tree

where everyone passing can see me

then the face of my past drives past

Spacing out

By taking off the mask, published on Nov 22, 2009

? Sitting on the sofa I managed to get a glimpse of the mirror hanging on the wall. A thin mirror surrounded with a gold border. A mirror that would change everything. Now you may say thats over exaggerating but I'll let you be the judge. What if a mirror can open your eyes. Not to just what's outside but what lies beneath the surface, what lies inside. What dwells inside me? What doors stay shut? The mirror opened the doors I tried to lock. It opened my eyes and let me peek into whats inside.

Staring at the mirror I couldn't see my reflection, the mirror was so far and the angel was... (more)

Broken Eyes

By taking off the mask, published on Nov 3, 2009

The cold air hits my cheek. i look around. Not a dry eye. except mine. Why can't i cry? Why can't i shed a tear for all those who died? No matter how tragic or sad my eyes don't give in. My eyes are selfish they keep all the pain inside. They don't let me express how i feel, they never do.  We walk towards the place they slept. Some girls were weeping the whole walk there. I don't know why it bothered me so much, I was jealous, I wanted to make them stop, make them stop rubbing it in my face that they know how to cry.  I tried to ignore it. tried to push out some tears but nothing came. darn.
