SkywardAnd maybe I love the smell of the rainSkyward by ~alexandra133
on Friday afternoons,
because I have become as sad as the sky.
And maybe I have grown
to love thunderstorms.
Because I have found comfort in knowing
that the sky cries too.
And maybe I love the snow
in the heart of December.
Because I am reminded that
my heart isn't that cold after all.
Days have grown longer and sky a shade of gray.
And like me,
the sky feels the same way.
UncoordinatedGrowing up, I have always been clumsy.Uncoordinated by ~alexandra133
Falling down stairs, stumbling into people and ideas.
I grew up always having several bruises,
but I never really did mind.
Until I fell for you.
Time has passed...
And now the only bruises that I have
are on my heart
DedicationI would write you a poem,Dedication by ~alexandra133
but I refuse to give my words
to someone who doesn’t think of me.
But if you must know what words
I would dedicate to you,
they would surly be
My BattlefieldThe top of the 10th inning; tie game. The feel of sweat dripping down my face as I stare into the eyes of my enemy. That's all that matters. One out at a time as they say. Just like I’ve been doing before. I look at my catcher who is giving me signs. Codes that have been ingrained into my head since I began this battle. Two, one, four, one; fastball. My opponent, my enemy for this moment, with his foot close to the plate, little too close, and his bat high above his shoulders. He has shown he weaknesses. The leather ball moves around in my hand. My fingers, moving into the grip needed to throw what is known as a fastball. I take a deep breath in, nod my head and let the breathe out. Start my motion as I rock back, bring one leg up only to plant it firm into the soft dirt in front of me. The ball glides off my hand and sores through the air. The batter swings at my high inside pitch, but misses it, as predicted. The pop of the mitt and the umpires clear “Strike”My Battlefield by ~Ben3418
The Darkness In MeI've fallen too deepThe Darkness In Me by ~ScullReaper
Into my own misery
For I cannot see the light of hope
This slowly dying heart
Captured by my fears
What once was warm
Is now frozen within
Release me from my chains
For only you can see through me
This darkness taking over
Filling every bit in me
Turning me into something
I was never meant to be
It's rage I can't stop
This pain is feeding
The furious beast
I'll tear your world apart
All love turned into hate
As the sun sets down tonight
For you will never hurt me again
It's the darkness in me
