College Confessions

By: jennyformooseSeptember 16, 2014

You know what sucks?

Looking at the clock and seeing that it's 3 AM and you can't sleep.

My eyes are tired but everything else is not.

I also figured out that I can't sleep because I miss this certain person. Like, a lot. To the point where

Miserable Man

By: WaffleloveSeptember 11, 2014

Looming above,

Blocking out the light.

Bent over me, spewing

Hot hate like foam.

 

Never never never

Good enough.

Unloved, unheard, unworthy.

There to always deny.

When he screamed in my face.

I breathed it in,

Where did they come from?

Why am I the Only One Who Fights?

By: jedialonzaSeptember 5, 2014
Why am I the only one who fights

for peace?

No one else cares, so why

should I?

Why does it matter to me

if you leave or stay?

If you make up your mind to

Enough

By: WaffleloveSeptember 5, 2014

No, I shouldn't do it again.

Love you.

Run to you with outstretched arms.

Give you everything I've got. 

Allow you back inside.

Let you pull me in one last time.

No, I can't do it again. 

Love you. 

Feel your abandonment for a while. 

Wonder where you are.
