Stress

Baby Bears

Cold, Tired, Hungry

I am a fallen apple

Rotting in the sand

Growing a beard

And the rain kisses smooth

My poisoned youth

Renewed

Cold, tired, Hungry

In the black winter night

Author's Notes/Comments: 

this is about stress and fatigue

Secrets

Folder: 
2002 poems

my inside self and my outside self are different as can be,

My outside self, writes poems, songs, and short stories,

Trys to be someone shes not,

hides herself from everyone,

donesnt let people see the real her,

hides her scares,

from cuts,burns, and brusies,

My inside self you can not see,

i hide my scares, my secrets, and my life,

you think you know me, but you have no clue,

i have secrets that cant come out, no one must know,

i cant let this happen,

these secrets of mine,

they must come out,

if i tell would you believe me?

would you even care?

Ill keep these secrets with me forever,

and pray to god it does not kill me.

Surrounded

Folder: 
Old Poems

vulnerability seems to have her stripped and wilted in a corner;
moaning like a morner

slowly dying
like tiny stars in the speckled sky,
they are far above her head; she's better off dead

nowhere to hide the shame; no one left to blame
those feelings forever burned in her skin

Insomnia

Folder: 
Pain/Ilness

Digital green illuminates darkness,

emphasizing awakeness,

every sound in quiet house

heard clearly by closely listening ears,

sensory perception heightened to fullest.



Tossing, turning,

fluffing, fussing,

eyes wide,

watching shadows dance

before they sleep.

(lucky shadows)



Mind reels,

thoughts of day bounce to and fro

in un-slumbering head.

Yawning away today,

awake until tomorrow

as sandman slacks off duties tonight.



Close out green glow

as I stare upon insides of heavy lids

that mock me.



'Will sleep ever be apprehended this night?'

my tired brain wonders

as I mercifully drift

into unconscious dormancy.

Untitled -- 4.11.2003

"Fuck faking, fuck cheating, fuck depression

Fuck taking life for granted, fuck regression

Fuck the ones with no respect, fuck them all

Fuck the people who enjoy seeing others fall

Fuck not making the most of life, or of the times

Fuck letting the little stuff get into your head and mind

Fuck being preoccupied with the future, we are here

Fuck caring what you look like, break the fucking mirror"

closeness lost

pressure to be

more than just me

pressure to get it all right

pressure to know

and know when to go

pressure to stay out of sight

pressure unspoken

relationship broken

pressure created within

wishing to rewind

to go back in time

put all of this to an end

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I always end up feeling like I'm in the way, like no one wants me around. Maybe I'm right, maybe I'm wrong... all I know for sure is I am missing some very important people in my life, and I feel it must be due to something I have done.

You think?

As I sit here wondering

if time will run out on me

before the ink in this pen



Is the cost of running away from love

higher than the price you pay

when it finds you?



Both of these options

are very expensive on the soul

All of that figuring and balancing

trying to determine

one's weight in gold



Being broke

is a very unnerving feeling

And I'm not just talking about empty pockets

That ain't nothing any job can't fix

An empty heart is more difficult to fill

For some of us

love is a commodity that don't always mix



And it is not as if one can discover

this fact right away

Not when time which is never on your side

so diligently keeps the truth at bay

I think they call this little discovery

life

You know

the one better known as a  b*tch

Yeah

the one saturated in strife

You know

the one that causes you to stress

and to itch

Scratching and rubbing

wearing your skin so thin

Can you last longer

than the ink in this pen..

I was just wondering...

(Song) Time Bomb

Folder: 
Music (T)

Locked inside this cage

I can't let go of all this rage

Inside my head itchin'

Inside my head tickin'

How much longer must I wait

Oh no, now it's too late

I can't let this go on

Now the pain is too strong



Tic and toc goes the clock

Like something that just won't stop

In my head all is calm

Then off goes the time bomb

An explosion of adrenalin

Feeding off of my emotion

I wanted to diffuse it

But instead I lose it



I don't know how I feel

All this pain it can't be real

Isn't there some other way

Why won't it just go away

Blood boils up inside my vein

Feels like I'm part of some game

I'll try my best to remain sane

But I'll never be the same



Tic and toc goes the clock

Like something that just won't stop

In my head all is calm

Then off goes the time bomb

An explosion of adrenalin

Feeding off of my emotion

I wanted to diffuse it

But instead I lose it



The darkness inside my

Heart lights fires inside my

Soul is churning as the

Clock keeps on turning inside



The darkness inside my

Heart lights fires inside my

Soul is churning as the

Clock keeps on turning inside



The darkness inside my

Heart lights fires inside my

Soul is churning as the

Clock keeps turning



Tic and toc goes the clock

Like something that just won't stop

In my head all is calm

Then off goes the time bomb

An explosion of adrenalin

Feeding off of my emotion

I wanted to diffuse it

But instead I lose it
