What's happening to meKeeping on hiding,all of the lies.Trying and fighting,all of the cries.covering the scars,hiding the cuts.Now only the stars,know I am nuts.Someone out there,that can see,what's happening to me.Something for me,I can do,to keep it cool.you'll think I'm a fool.Another mistake,know what I'll do.Piece of skin will break,but not cause of you.Don't want attendion,that's why I hide.It's an addiction,a constant fight.Someone out there,that can see,what's happening to me.Something for me,I can do,to keep it cool.you'll think I'm a fool.Don't want to tell,want someone to know.what's in this hell,what's in this low.Nobody there,silence ahead,it was just a dream,I still haven't said.Someone out there,that can see,what's happening to me?
My maskDeepest cut so far,drawn another scar.My sister sits downstairs,I wonder if she cares.Keep quiet to hold the lie,to hold it all inside.let it come out in red.I won't tell if you won't ask,I'll keep wearing my mask.Laugh and play along,I know I'm doing wrong.Talking with my friends,they'd never understand.Keep quiet to hold the lie,to hold it all inside.let it come out in red.I won't tell if you won't ask,I'll keep wearing my mask.Falling to the floor,make it go deeper.I cut because I hate myself,I hate because I cut.Keep quiet to hold the lie,to hold it all inside.let it come out in red.I won't tell if you won't ask,I'll keep wearing my mask.Deepest cut so far,drawn another scar.
WallsI'm fine,I lied,can't you see it in my eyes.Won't cave,not safe,I'm really not that brave.Hold everything in,Bleed it all out.won't let anybody in,I'm covered by a cloud.I know I've become undone,Can I ever overcome?I cry,I lie,No one ever asks me why.In fear,too near,take a step away from here.Hold everything in,Bleed it all out.won't let anybody in,I'm covered by a cloud.I know I've become undone,Can I ever overcome?Don't get to close to me,My walls are up too high.I'll never let you in,So please don't even try,you'll only make me cry,and searching for the knife.Hold everything in,Bleed it all out.won't let anybody in,I'm covered by a cloud.I know I've become undone,Can I ever overcome?
Not that easyI guess I screwed it up.The one person that I had,now truly hates me too.Could've been on top.Could've climbed the mountainbut I couldn't make it through.I wish I could make you proud of me.I hope you haven't given up just yet.I don't want to lose you.But it's not that simple, no it's not that easy.I know I can blame myself.I just wasn't strong enoughand let my demons take over.Oh I know you want to help.I wish I could tell you howbut I can't seem to figure out.I wish I could make you proud of me.I hope you haven't given up just yet.I don't want to lose you.But it's not that simple, no it's not that easy.I'm really not okay,But I don't know what to say.You try and show me a way,I'm not ready yet today.Not ready to let go,It's hard to let you know...I wish I could make you proud of me.I hope you haven't given up just yet.I don't want to lose you.But it's not that simple, no it's not that easy.I guess it won't be simple, it'll never be that easy.

To The Beautiful YouTo The Beautiful You:Here we are, sitting behind these screens of glass,Reading lines of text, yet smiling, laughing and crying.It's strange to think that I could have this much fun -Considering that I've never met you before, but then againPerhaps that's the reason why I don't have to pretend.Some people might tell me, that what we have is just a fantasy,I doubt I'll have the chance to actually see you in this life-time.But even so, in the time that we've spent together - Well,I feel as though I've connected with you, more than anyone else.I feel as though I know you better, than those just a few feet away.You might take this little confession as something silly,Maybe you'll even forget about it as time passes,But I for one could never forget about someone like you,And so I'd like to dedicate this piece, to the beautiful you.-Chen Yuan Wen, 17th December 2012
MaskMaskWhen you look into my eyesWhat do you see?You see a girl,Confident in her self,Who can do no wrong.But that's not me.It's a mask,A mask with more than one uses.To protect what's inside,Both from the worldAnd me.Do I truly want to gaze into my soulAnd see it bared before me?To know all the naked truthsAnd seething liesI have yet to see revealed.My soul,The definition of me.My mask,Who I want to be.This fake persona,This folly attemptOf a perfect selfIs a lie.I am not perfect,But with this maskI choose to try.
FragileI know that you're broken,And all your pieces are scattered,I know that you're bruised,And your pale skin is battered.I can see the scars,That you're trying to hide,And I can see the hurt,Burried beneath your pride.You're barely holding together,Your tattered, fraying threads,The harder you try to keep it in,The more the hole spreads.Stop trying to battle alone,When I'm here with sword in hand,I can help you pick up the pieces,There'll be nothing we can't withstand.Don't give up the fight,My friend who is so fragile,Take my hand and let me hold you,Let me love you for a while.You think that it's not worth it,And just want to give in,So you run the blade down your arm,Breaking your heavenly skin.I wish that I could show you,How much you mean to me,But you just push me away,And wallow in your debris.Why can't you see what I see?I think that you're amazing,I love your scars, and your wounds,And your eyes that are always blazing.I am giving you my all,So do
Tired, Exhausted, DrainedTired, Exhausted, Drained:I am bloody exhausted! Drained to the core of my soul.I wake up every morning with bags; burning ever deeper into my eyes.Sunken masses of flesh, reminding me that the dreamscape -One in which I sought refuge; is now buried where it lies.Yet still I force myself to trudge through this wilderness.Forever caught in a moon drenched, delusory twilight.An endless cycle of failure and renewed hope;Giving rise to the very stubbornness that defines me.-Chen Yuan Wen, 5th February 2013
You didn't dare.She smiled,but it was fake.She laughed,but she's about to break.She reached out,but no one came,tried to fake it,but the pain stayed the same.This girl, she called to you,but you didn't care.Something told you to help,but you didn't dare.What would the others say?The ones who called her a freak.They may taunt or shun you,so you choose not to speak.Then she decides to leave.Because no one wants her here.You'll never see her cry.She'll never shed another tear.
In a Little Girl's MindThere sits the girl with the things in her eyesMonsters, destruction, and sweet butterfliesHopscotch and daisies, surrounded by screamsBeautiful dresses now torn at the seamsCrayons and paintbrushes, villains and grinsYoung, gladsome innocence, hatred and sinsLittle red houses on roads left to fadeGorgeous moonlight shining off of the bladeBlood pouring out as she cries her own nameKnowing she's forced to take each bit of blameShe could have stopped it and left it behindAll of these things in her troubled young mindShe could have saved them if she dared to tryRather, though, she left herself there to die.Now, others watch as she sits on the groundKeeping their distance and letting her drownIn her own worries and things she won't tellWaiting for her mind to kill her as well…

R.I.P WordsDo you know what it feels like?To feel something, but...be unable to express what it is;to be silent;to fight it alone.I know how much it hurts,but I don't know how to show it.Poetry used to be my refuge,a place where I could be alone -express all my emotions,without being judged.I'm losing it.I can't connect to poetry.Everything sounds so stupid...Everything I write sounds stupid.I have to erase all my feelings,because they don't sound right.The words aren't real.They don't show what I feelAnd maybe this will be the last.Maybe I'm gone:lost of all emotions.I'm truly alone...I used to have poetry.Now I have nothing.
I won't fallI'll withstand it.No matter how hard you shoot,I won't fall.I'm stronger than you think.No matter how many ammo you waste on me,I won't fall.I'll withstand everything.I'll repel everything you throw my way,I won't fall.I'm stronger than you could ever guess.Just try and shoot me down,I won't fall.You'll see
GoodbyesA shy hello begins the tale,Two strangers in a play,A quiet word, a moment's careBrings back the mirth of May,And then a smile, a borrowed laugh,Perhaps a happy tear,Life's woes are few, its gifts renew,But they don't last, my dear.Such weeping I have often seen;So many fruitless tears,And yet a question I have askedMet silence through the years.Alone the crave, alone the grave;All pain is pleasure's loan,We come with naught, and thus depart,Tell me, what do we own?We are wildflowers in the breezeA breath of father time,And in the hue, in wanton dewPerhaps there is some rhyme,And for a spell, we briefly brushAnd love and live in vain, But one by one we must wave onTo never meet again.
RunI need to escape,I need to be free.I must surely run wild.I long to laugh and see.Run, run I shall run out of fear.I will flee from the threat.I shall go far not near.A place that is safe,That is what I need.I need no familiar faceSo, I take off with speed.Forget what I have leftFor it is surely gone.Time is running out,They will be awakened by dawn.So, I gather my thingsAnd swiftly go away.There's nothing left for me hereAnd no reason to stay.But I'll admit, I'm glad that I'm free.After years of being controlled, I can finally be me. ~M.E.B.~
This is My VoiceThis is my voiceIt wasn't my choice I never learned to... be quiet. Graves are only boxesI'm not dead yet, but who's counting?The clock isTime doesn't exist-Clock's existI don't cut my wristI'm not pissedBut I'm sad. I want to be a writerBut instead, I'm bitterDown comes the rain,pitter patter pitter Against the window paneI don't really know how to rhymeBut if I had a dimeFor every timeI crumpled up a piece of paper,I'd be rich.But I'd have to give it all back for wasting trees. You can't win against societyThey don't get that people come in varietyCausing people anxiety over their bodyAnd the way they look.They bring out the bookI say, "What book?" They say, "The bible."Is it really that reliable? Christians are undeniable But
So What Do I Do?If only I could read your mindIf only I could interpret you emotionsUnderstand what you're going throughSee through your eyesHear through your earsFeel through your heartIf only I knew how to help youBut I can'tAnd I don'tAnd it's killing meSo what do I do?Tell me.

I don't knowI dont know how to say itHow to do itHow to change it.I dont know how to move itHow to get itHow to embrace it.I dont know how to teach itHow to unleash itHow to reach it.I dont know how to smell itHow to taste itHow to touch it.I dont know how to have itHow to find itHow to hide it.I dont know what it is...I dont know.It's not a smell, or a taste, or a touch.Its not a push, or a pull, or a rush.It's not the depth in your eyes or the sound of your voiceIt's not but is all the above.All I do know....It's inexplicable,It's love.
A Writer's Romance-"You're a writer, aren't you?"Those were the first words she spoke to me.At the time, I was packing up, getting ready to leave the library.I had another long day, spending the majority of my free time at the library, loitering around on my laptop,Staring at my open wordpad as I contemplated about what to write about.Just as I was readying to leave this girl, out of nowhere, asks me if I'm a writer.-"I like to think I am."-That's the only answer I could give her.I had taken up writing as a hobby,But no matter how hard I tried, all of my work felt underwhelming.-"Please...Could I get you to help me write a poem?If that is too much trouble than anything else will do too."-She starred at me with her big blue eyes,Long golden hair,Holding her hands together at her chest -She was quite pretty at that,Making me question why such a person would come up a complete stranger such as myself, and ask for something so absurd.-"Why do you need something like that?"-That's truthful
AwayI want to fly away,up, in the sky.down, back to earth.I wantI want to go.Away, anywhere, nowhere, somewhere.Just go,Leave, let go, live.I want to fly away,somewhere I can stay.
