A Slice of Life- Kelsey Crum

Posted: March 27, 2013 by kelseycrum2015 in KelseyC

What’s as confusing as everyday life in general?

Can be as smooth as honey?

Then, hard as a rock?

Comes quickly,

But with no way to control it?

Can take you places you’ve never seen,

Or leave you right where you stand?

Just when you think you know the answer,

Someone pulls the rug from under your feet.

Older, wiser people

Always try to give advice,

Sometimes, it just makes matters worse.

Don’t stress about it too much.

Because in the blink of an eye,

It’s done and over with.

It’ll all be in the past.

A slice of life called


I Asked To Forget About You- Kelsey Crum

Posted: March 27, 2013 by kelseycrum2015 in KelseyC

I asked to forget about you,

But you still pop up in my mind.

I gave you all I could give,

But in the end it wasn’t enough.

I gave you everything you wanted,

But you were never happy.

I gave you my heart,

But you ended up shattering it.

I tried to make things work,

To not be so upset,

To just keep trying,

Nothing ever worked.

So I gave up,

Which depressed me,

You don’t know

How much your words hurt me.

And you don’t know

That my heart still longs for you

Even though my mind screams, “NO!”

You don’t know

How much you mean to me.

If you would at least

Tell me how you feel,

Instead of being distant,

It would give me closure

Just to know how you feel.

I asked to forget about you,

But my heart won’t let me.

Words You’ll Never Hear- Kelsey Crum

Posted: March 27, 2013 by kelseycrum2015 in KelseyC

You slipped through my grasp

Like sand through an hourglass

How did I let you go?

I love you, I miss you

But you’re in someone else’s arms

And with tears threatening to pour from my eyes

Like an ocean

I say words that you’ll never hear.

Forget the words I said when we parted

The feelings are still 100% there for me,

But you say no, they aren’t there for you anymore.

How did I let this happen again?

If I could give you anything,

I would take everything I could find,

Every star in the sky,

Every drop of the salty ocean,

Every single blade of grass,

Every ray of sunshine on a bright summer morning,

So you will never go without,

So maybe you’ll understand

That I love you way more than she ever will,

She’s a child,

She’ll break your heart,

Again, I’m saying

Words you’ll never hear.

I am backed up against a wall.

How can a five letter word hurt so much?


It knocks the air out of my lungs

 causing me to  gasp for air, and I collapse on the ground.

Teary eyes look down at me

“She’ll be okay” they mutter

 trying to convince me but also themself.

My eyes look up at them disconnected.

My body goes cold, and my vision is blurred.

My body is a shell for this cold soul to dwell.

I am alone.

I am alone.

When my back is up against the wall,

it is the only support I have.

This Morning

Posted: March 26, 2013 by Ethan G in EthanG

Yesterday was but a dream, a hazy memory of a reality in which only moments remain. At this moment, however, I remember every feeling and every image of this morning: trudging to the shower, trudging from the shower, collapsing on the bed, hearing beloved melodies, dressing hastily, feeling the warmth of a car after being exposed to cold and disheartening weather which sent chills to my soul, all the little moments of unimportance.

Beginning of the End

Posted: March 26, 2013 by vjbc21 in VivanC

Everything has a beginning.

A sudden stillness,

Empty and alone.

Always searching for something.

Someone to hear you.

Life is always changing,

And leaving us crawling to catch up.

It’s your choice to stand.

Scared to risk,

Yet scared to be alone.

Time is a forceful wind,

Blowing you away.

You can throw your punches,

But it still knocks you down.

Your life is only a breath of time.

Everything has an end.

Most Memorable Day in My Life

Posted: March 26, 2013 by kaileed7 in KaileeD

365 days in a year. In which I have fifteen. Fifteen years and so many days to pick my most memorable.

The day I rode my bicycle without training wheels? The day I ran on a sandy beach for the first time? The day I met my little, baby brothers? The day I swam all by myself? The first day of high school? The day I turned fifteen?

There are so many days to choose from. How to pick just one? Bits and pieces of the memories remain in my head. I will remember and cherish them for as long as I can. It is always nice to relive moments of the past.

Just Watch

Posted: March 26, 2013 by lukacsbetsy in BetsyL

Watch me shudder when the wind tries my strength,

and in the end I will stand tall still.

Watch me smile in the shadows of my doubt.

Facing fears once forgotten.

See my humbleness on the mountain top

and hardships of the valley.

For I will never forget my murals

or the foundation of my reality.

I am young and radical

let me be.

Watch my fly

above my dreams.

I guess I didn’t realize that one day you’d grow up.

That one day we’d wake up, and you would be taller than I am.

For thirteen years, I have lived across the hall from you.

Our bedrooms parallel.

Thirteen years of thinking how little and fragile you are.

You are my little sister.

So, why do you look so mature?

My little sister is gone,

 and the room beside of me

 is occupied by someone much older.

Someone that doesn’t need my help or advice.

Someone with real dilemmas

and someone I have yet to take the time to know.

Maybe I was crazy for thinking we would stand still in time.

Maybe I was crazy for thinking

the face that sits beside me

 at the dinner table would never change.

Is this what happens overtime?

We change and we grow?

We find the person we are meant to be….

but in the end we lose each other?

He Thinks We Don’t Know

Posted: March 26, 2013 by kaileed7 in KaileeD

He thinks we don’t know about his habit

The doctors told him to cut it out,

He has always been a stubborn old man

We hid every sweet in the house,

For his safety

We believed he had quit for a while

Grandma found Oreos in his sock drawer,

Smarties in his truck,

And lunch cakes in his night stand

We knew it wasn’t healthy, but we didn’t say anything

He has still never found out that we know


Posted: March 26, 2013 by lukacsbetsy in BetsyL

Within the silence I hear your whisper

Like it was only meant for my ears to hear.

Am I really that important to you?

That you would hear me before anyone else would be willing to?

I turn my ear to hear your voice so clear.

When silence is present

all else is sustained.

Time stops, the earth hushes, the still small whisper is the only life painted

and it’s your name.

I have a secret.

It’s as deadly as venom as it rushes through my veins.

Making my heartbeat slower and my eyes disconnected.

I’m unplugged thinking that  what I’m doing to myself is okay.

Starving yet only craving control.

I think she knows.

She has to know.

My mother was always one step ahead.

As the lies buzz around me like bees,

 I continue to say “Yes, I ate.” or  “No, I am not hungry.”

, and I swat them away convincing myself they will never sting me.

I ‘m breaking.

How do you pick up the pieces and become stronger?

That’s the secret no one will share with me.

The headaches appear and my vision goes blurry.

I’m in a fog, and I can’t find my way out.

Call out!

Point me in the right direction!

Because I’m Broken.

When You Taught Me

Posted: March 26, 2013 by kaileed7 in KaileeD

When you taught me

How to fish at five

A rod, reel, hook, line, & sinker

I didn’t know what it all meant

But you taught me

My first cast landing directly at my feet

I wasn’t good at first

But you taught me

As I’ve grown,

You have continued to teach me

Anything and everything

I hope you never run out of things to teach me

Different eyes

Posted: March 26, 2013 by josephcolley in JosephC

The eyes of one man are different than someone else’s.
A complete stranger speaks of something dire.
“She slept with someone” Is all I can hear from his frantic speech.
It was explained many times over, though what I heard was all the same.
Everyone left my mind. Everyone left my soul.
The stranger’s words were daggers lunging into me.
“We need to talk” Is the only thing I can build the guts to say.
Soon after I hear the words again, even though it’s explained by someone I know.
The words sprang into my mind again. “She’s with someone else.”
However, trembles through her speech tell me something.
She’s innocent here. She didn’t want it to happen.
I wish I’d realized it sooner… All I accomplished was making us both feel more alone.

I wish I didn’t know

Posted: March 26, 2013 by peytonporter1995 in PeytonP

It happened again,
I thought it was all over.
I thought this part of our lives were done.
That we wouldn’t venture back down this road.
I’m not sure if you think I’m stupid,
Maybe you just don’t care.
My family was once whole,
Now it is broken.
I really don’t blame anyone.
Maybe that’s the way it’s meant to be.
I’m just a kid, it’s none of my concern,
you’ll always be my father and you’ll always be my mother.
At least that’s what I’m told.
I’m not a baby anymore, I know what goes on.
Life has took yet another unexpected turn.
So, I’m just left here waiting, waiting and wishing I didn’t know.
