Angry at Nothing: The Anthem of Teenage Angst

Originally Posted on ChapterTK.comMost of my poetry up  to this point has questions my identity. Who am I? Who do I want to be? Why am I in pain and what do I need to relieve myself from suffering?

Into the Abyss.....

She stands before the mirror,Gazing into the mystery of her own body,Years of growing, years of torment,A fight against herself,The mirror reflecting reality,But yet, she sees through herself,And into the depths of the perfect figure. The mirror before her is like a window,Which she sees through,Her beauty drains from her body,The strength dissolves into the abyss,Self destruction, dreams, and ambitions lost,Through the ugliness to being beautiful,...more

Friendship.....

We talk about friendship,As something so special,Something we keep,They say it is the happiness,The path to a wonderful future,But to me friendship,Is the pain that consumes my body,The anger that takes over me,It is the mistrust making me look over my shoulder,It is the barriers that are built,That build a wall that block my way. They say friendship,Is a special kind of love,Creating sunshine that warms the heart,People say friendship,Shows the best in people,...more

Loneliness......

The essence of my life,The character of my being,The answer to my sadness. Loneliness is so unbearable,So much agony inside,It steals from me everything I cherish. This feeling is dominant,Its a laceration to my heart,The nightmare of my life. Loneliness has taken my personality,It has taken my ability to be me,Loneliness has stolen from me, myself. It is a feeling with me all the time,It grows more every day,It is ruining who I am,...more

My heart.....

My heart,Represents a waterfall,That holds all my feelings,The water which falls,Little droplets which fall,Crashing to the bottom,So do my tears,Tears which show,Fears from my heart,The difference,The water flows on after it’s decent,But what is broken in my heart, stays,The droplets float away,Away to a different peaceful place,Feelings in my heart,Fears that cannot escape,Tears showing my feelings,Built up inside,Never let go,...more

Her Evil Place......

In a place,Faraway,Lives a girl,Locked away,Her heart and mind,Broken and battered,Fading away,In a dark evil place. Nobody she can turn too,Except the problems in her life,All forgotten,In her place of evil hindrance,Of forgotten memories,Everything filled with sadness. Left by friends,Forgotten by family,Nobody cares,A life of endless nightmares,All about betrayal,Filled with hatred, and heartache,A soul filled with sorrow....more

Freedom of the Heart.....

Freedom of the heart,Refreshing of my soul,All things which surround me,Friendships everlasting....no,My heart, pain, and breaking. Friends and family,Of love and of hurt,Of loneliness and of dreams,All that has left me,Hurting deep inside me. The heart,Which is hurting inside me,Is breaking the person,Which I am. Down a path, can’t go back,All the way, a bumpy endless track,Loneliness , struck senseless,Pain and misfortune,...more
