Well its been literally forever, I haven't been very active lately. But that's mostly because I've been more active in real life :) yay for that! lol I'm still really happy, and a majority of that is still because of Mitch. He is literally my favorite person ever, no contest. I have fallen down the steepest mountain side for this boy (aka this means I've fallen in love), and have so since May. Life is good, school is school, and I'm just happy to be where I am :) yay life :)
A heart of gold with a twist of black,
Twisted hearts are all I see.
Around me they walk,
Going about their lives
Without knowing what they could be.

They just settle for what they are;
Content with being unhappy
Even if they do not know why.
I see their hearts clear as day;
gold hidden under the surface
Just begging to be set free.

I see the potential for them to grow,
To stop feeding the blackness.
It would make life so much better;
All they need is a push,
A reasons to stop the madness.

I feel the duty to push them,
To encourage them to let it go.
Someone has to do it
And that someone can be me.
"I can help them, I know it."

But try and try as I might
They never seem to listen.....
But even if they choose the darkness,
Between the streaks of black, under the surface
I still see their golden hearts glisten.
Gold With a Twist of Black
Something I wrote a long time ago, around February and finished in April. Literally describes my life I think, because this is what always seems to happen. But its something I just gotta deal with because someone has to I guess.

I want to tell you
About the thoughts in my head...
You wouldn't like them.
This is a poem.
Sometimes, it's all you need to
Have life be okay.
Funny how things can change so quickly, no?
Being one thing one day, but not the next.
Having a place to let your true thoughts show,
To transform your emotions into text.
You can just put it all down and not care
because they will never find or see it.
No matter what happens, you feel free there.
But those days are gone, it is now unfit
for the thoughts you keep locked inside your mind.
Robbed of this place, you have no where to go
With the thoughts that you don't want them to find.
You must keep them inside; hidden, they grow.
   I used to have a place they could be free,
   but now that place has been stolen from me.
