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.
I WonderThe way your hands findI Wonder by AngelofLight03
Themselves intertwined with mine
And the way your gaze looks
At me like I am the best thing in the world.
And I can’t help but wonder
If you can see everything that
I do when I look in the mirror.
I wonder if you know how
I longed to be the woman that
I am today.
Or how I didn’t get here
All in one piece.
That somehow you can
See the damage beneath my skin.
That somehow you know
It took everything in me
Not to end who I was that day
Because my heart broke
When I lost him.
I wonder if you can see
How I am still so afraid to let
You gaze upon me
And let your hands intertwine
Because I have known this before.
I have felt lips upon mine,
And I have held another’s hand.
And I had gazed upon another
Long before you caught my eye.
I have felt my heart beating
So fast in my chest that it felt
Like it was going to explode.
So I wonder if you can see
How my heart doesn’t shine the way
You once knew.
And how my fingers tremble
Life Would Suck Without You HereI may not know what you knowLife Would Suck Without You Here by AngelofLight03
And I may not have been where you are
But I promise that if you ever feel like
The walls around you are closing in
And the world around you is falling apart
I will be there to help you through it.
I will be there to pull you out of the darkness
And show you the light.
Because there is beauty in this world
But it won’t exist if you aren’t
Here to see it.
It won’t shine if you aren’t here.
Life isn’t made of easy courses
Or signs that point you in the right direction.
Life is like a chess game where there are a number
Of outcomes and games to be played before
You get to checkmate.
Life is messy and it can be difficult.
But if you don’t give it a chance
You will always be left in checkmate.
I may not know what you know
And I may not have been where you have been.
But I do know what it is like to have the
Walls come caving in.
And I do know what it is like when it
Feels like the world around you is falling apart.
And I also k

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?

Someone once asked me: 'How can you break the things you love?'
I replied to them: 'With ease, because broken things are prettier'
Never feel distraught if others find happiness in your misery.
Instead find your own happiness
and you'll see that others don't matter...
There might be a person that is better than you today,
but even when today is done; of you, there is still only one.
Fear not the negativity that others bring,
For you have the option of washing it off.
They on the other hand, may never escape their ways.

In a world full of kayos
I find solace in your embrace.
I am world full of pain and suffering
I find peace in the abyss.
“Darling we are fighting for the wrong things. I don’t want to end like this. What happened to us and how we used to be? What happened to the things we have shared? I don’t know what to do anymore. This war between our families have begun to tear us apart.”
I couldn’t bring myself to hate them. Not after everything that we have been through. This world was made for all of us. So why can’t they see that.
I often wandered away from home and travelled down to the lake. I always followed the same path behind my house. I had left small blue markings on the trees so that I could always find my way back home. The trees have begun to change color and the air has become colder. But this doesn’t stop me from going. As I reach the clearing I see the large rock that is sitting upon the sand and the clear blue waters that surround the area. But that is not what catches my eye. She does. The one that I have seen so many times. She comes here during the night to gaze upon the waters and bask in the moonlight. She is the reason that I come here.
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.
