AnxietyMy heart beats fast,Anxiety by AngelofLight03
And I begin to sweat.
How am I ever going to do this?
My mind is racing,
And my body is shaking.
How am I ever going to do this?
With one foot in front of the other,
And a deep breath.
I hold on for dear life
And hope I don’t collapse.
My mind is racing and my thoughts
Please just let me get through this.
I spend my days at war with my mind.
Trying to understand just how
I going to do this.
I must try.
But I can’t.
My friends all ask me “what is wrong?”
And I just reply “Nothing is wrong. I am fine.”
But you don’t understand.
Anxiety has taken over.
And it has a way of crippling me.
The things I want to do
But can’t because something else
Is in control.
It is just like having two
People living inside
That I am doing the best I can.
I know I can do this.
It is just so hard for me.
Please be patient
That I am doing the best I can.
I am at war with myself
A Bond No One UnderstandsIt wasn’t like that for the two of us.A Bond No One Understands by AngelofLight03
Not the way that I viewed it.
I didn’t want anyone else to be
As close to me as he was.
He came into my life like a storm.
Only his storm lasted a lifetime
And I wasn’t afraid to dive in.
He embraced me and he opened up the doors in my mind
And broke down the walls in my heart.
I don’t think he ever intended to mean this much to me.
But the thought of him not being in my life was unimaginable.
I couldn’t live without him.
I was always afraid of what would happen if
I had given into my feelings for him and let him in.
He already had me the moment we locked eyes.
But to give into those feelings would be giving all of me too him.
And without realizing, I did that.
I gave him all of my heart when I never intended to.
He was my storm, my hurricane in my endless journey.
He stopped me in my tracks,
He made me believe that love was possible
And that I could be loved and that
I didn’t have to try to be something that I
UntitledMy mind was a ticking time bomb.Untitled by AngelofLight03
Ready to explode any moment.
I found myself uttering words from my mouth
Only to have them become entangled with my tongue
And have them spewed like fireworks from my lips.
Now I am FreeYou were the anchor thatNow I am Free by AngelofLight03
Kept me grounded
When I felt like giving up.
You were the glue that
Held me together when I
Didn’t feel like trying anymore.
You showed me who I was
And who I didn’t
Want to be.
What I failed to see
Was that you were
The one who was
Holding me back.
I thought you were my saviour,
My guardian angel,
But what I realized was
That you were the one
That I needed to be free from.
You kept me in your reach
And never out of sight.
You were caging the girl
Who wanted to soar.
You were holding her back
From finally being free.
You were the anchor that
Wanted to tame me.
While I was the one who
Broke the chain.
And now I am free.
NamasteWriting lines of poetryNamaste by AngelsTemptation
in sin & skin & sighs
your hands wrapped
in a redhaired rosary
cleansing your energy
with a goddess
in the basement
of the covenant
shaking the foundation
of your faith
you find divinity
as the very light of her
in every touch of her
reaches deep inside you
that only exist
for the light…
Hey BeautifulFor a time my body was weak without you.Hey Beautiful by WordOfChen
These hands of mine could no longer function.
Even with the mask on I was unable to smile
and slowly, the fire of my soul seemed to dim into a tiny smolder.
I felt that I could do nothing when I was without you,
Indeed I felt I was absolutely nothing without you.
But perhaps from the void that ate at my insomniac mind,
or perhaps simply in a fevered revelation:
I realised that you would never want me this way...
The man you had loved was never a weakling,
even if he had a heart beating beneath a shallow grin.
The man that you loved was never so pitiful,
even if he had his moments of weakness within.
So though my body rebelled at every instruction,
I covered the internal wounds with the mask of a smile.
And I promise I will put on the greatest of shows;
So that when you do return, it will be worth your while.
And my dear, I promise, if you should ever honour me by coming back.
I'll be sure that I greet you--with the same smile I had, wh

You'll never believe it,
But people actually like you,
And your artwork later on
You'll never know it,
But soon your poems will be,
Up on the front page of the,
Website you breathe with your life
You'll never believe me when I say,
When you're feeling sad all your friends,
And even strangers go out of their way,
To make you feel better
And you'll never believe it,
But that gives you confidence
And you'll never know it,
But one day your ideas and,
Messages to the world will be,
Read by hundreds of people
And you'll never see it coming,
But one day you'll cry because,
You finally found out,
How the world really sees you

i am the name that only
kisses your lips when
we’ve escaped the border
of your little town.
i am the photograph in
the pocket of the jeans
you haven’t washed yet.
i am the stars that only
get to see you when
the lights go out, only
twinkling when you let
me, only shining when
you flick my switch.
i am your secret. i am the name that didn’t ask to be whispered. i am the photograph that deserves the frame. i am the stars—but i am not your stars; I do not need permission to twinkle, to shine.
i am your secret—
but here i am,
Hello, my name is Veronica. I have an interest in writing. I have been writing for as long as I can remember. I didn't start writing poems until I was 13 or 14 years old. I went through a lot when I was 13 that had a huge impact on my life. Writing poems was my way out. It gave me the voice I never knew I had, and the voice that didn't want to speak to others.
I hope to inspire others to pursue their dreams, and to let them know that they are not alone in this world. I have been through a lot in my life, and I hope that by sharing what I have experienced that I help someone else who needs it, and didn't have anyone there for them. If you ever need someone to talk to I am here for you, and there are others in this world who love, and support you, and will be there for you when you need them.
