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.
Now I SeeI lost myself all those years agoNow I See by AngelofLight03
When you were too frightened to see.
I lost myself years ago when everything
Became too much.
I lost myself the day he left me
And my heart broke.
I didn’t know what sadness felt like
Until I lost everything I ever loved.
I didn’t know that a person could break
A thousand times because of words
That came from a mouth so tender and sweet.
I didn’t know that this was how it was going to end.
That I was going to be his forgotten memory
While he became everything that I hated about myself.
Before that I didn’t know what it was like to fall in love
With someone who loved me like the air that I was breathing.
I just didn’t know that
I wasn’t worth the fight for him.
But now I understand that we didn’t belong.
We didn’t belong in each other’s worlds.
It was much too difficult for us to co-exist together.
And we had to find our different paths.
And now I see that I was worth the fight.
But just not for him.
Some WhereSome where there is a personSome Where by AngelofLight03
Who said no to you when you asked for sex
Because 10 times wasn’t enough.
Some where someone is screaming
Because they had just witnessed
Their parents being murdered
By someone they love.
Some where someone is
Is being bullied
For the way they look, how they act,
The things they like,
For being who they are.
Some where someone
Is scared to walk out their door
Because someone hurt them
In the one place they thought they were safe.
Some where someone is crying
With the pieces of who they once were
Scattered across the floor
Like a broken vase
Because the person they loved
Broke them into those pieces.
And every one of them doesn’t know
What to do, or who to trust.
And when they look in the mirror
All they see is a reminder that
Everything they once knew, loved
And everything they were are now destroyed.
Broken homes and broken hearts.
Somewhere in this world
Another person lost their fight
Because their world became too much
And the world lost it
AlmostAs if almost wasn’t good enough.Almost by AngelofLight03
As if I wasn’t good enough.
I loved you like the moon loves the stars,
Like the sun loves the earth so much that
It brings light into its darkest days.
I couldn’t help but wonder if you
Finally saw the broken pieces of my soul
That I so desperately tried to keep hidden.
That somehow the darkest parts of me
Weren’t what you were looking for,
That somehow I was the problem.
But baby I was in this for the long run.
I knew that I wasn’t perfect but I loved who I was.
I knew that this was going to be difficult
And I was prepared to love every part of you,
Including the darkest parts.
Because how can you truly love someone
Without knowing who they really are,
Without knowing that things may get hard,
Without knowing anything.
How can you love when you don’t let the
Demons come out and play once in a while?
We let this love fall apart because almost loving
Is the worst way to love someone.
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
permission to shinei am your secret.permission to shine by pages-of-poems
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,
what ifWhat if today was my last day,what if by MyLoveForYouEternity
Would you be there to hold my hand?
What if i ended my life,
Would you cry and and wonder why?
What if i show you my love,
Would you stay or walk away?
What if i said i was fine,
Would you hug me and say that im not?
Would you be there when i want to leave,
Or walk away and never return?
What if i loved you from the start,
Would you laugh or say the same thing?
What if i died tonight,
Would you even care or would you cry?
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.
