The YouthI am overgrown gardensThe Youth by ilovezuko123
Rotting wood, soft as the dark earth.
Tiny insects, their secret legs scraping in the dark
While rosy blossoms unspin their flouncing gowns
Filling the hazy air with the sugared perfume of forgotten summers.
I am the slick of water on dark pavement
The wavering lights of suburban decay left quivering
By the rush of iron and steel
Infinity on high-
The taste of youth, like asphalt and cigarettes,
Catching each others' eyes
As we feel the music beating a tattoo inside our chests.
I am a child's legs
Spattered with mud; calloused toes.
The adventure in backyard woods
Where compost is our castle
And we pay no heed
To crumbling walls and broken glass
I am the tempestuous lurch
Half guilt, half wild joy
In being alive and making mistakes
And knowing we did what our parents said not to.
But we are seventeen:
We are immortal.
I am the dim light of a half lit car,
Books scattered like resting birds in the backseat
I have tasted their pages: I know their secrets.
LoveSickLoveSick by TyC113
I don't know what to do
My sky is black when it was blue
She was special, this I tell you
But I guess it was too good to be true
This woman I thought could save me
From a life of being so lonely
I thought one day our worlds would meet
Alas, I guess it wasn't meant to be
She has crushed what was my heart
This girl was to me My Superstar
Forgetting is hard with regrets from the start
Is this the price for loving from afar?
I wrote poems, stories, and even love songs
Telling how I feel about her in every lyric
Tell me, Doctor what did I do wrong
To have her crush my hopeful spirit?
To sum it all up Doctor, that's just it
I'm left asking why did I deserve this?
Can you help me out of my abyss
I need your therapy, I'm Love Sick.
:3 i love lots of things, including you!|
