broken glass poem
Your life is a fallacy,
Deceiving everyone around you.
You wear your mask skin tight,
Inducing suffocation
While you hide your staggering despair,
Disguising every emotion
So no one can see the pain and the suffering.
Feelings of anger, sadness, and confusion
Begin to take its toll.
Breaking the silence
As you reach your breaking point.

They tell you that things will only get better,
But this is false too
Because if you’re guard is down you will only fall again.
Deeper than the last time
Harder to get up again
You ask for help, yet no one really listens.

Hi everyone! My name is Jess. I have many talents, my favorite is easy to guess. reading is fun, but writing is the hobby that's number one. expressing visions and sights to see and emotions, I've experienced that have lead me to be stronger and independent, wiser and free, more expressive than I used to be. I write about fears though I'm rarely scared. I write about fallen tears as I let out the sadness, my make up tends to smear I write about love, but don't we all? everyone dreams of that person we adore that never fails to strike us in awe. I write short stories that may exercise your imagination and poems that you can relate to through visualization. I even write plays that have a modern tone, but a touch of the olden days. for me it gives me the chance to share with each and every creative person, any where and every where.

    "A Cold World" - A Poem of Life and Loneliness by Jevonte LockhartIf I had the choice, I’d pause the moment, rewind the good times, fast forward the bad times, record the times I was at my prime, delete the moments where the spotlight wasn’t mine, then get a stopwatch to freeze time, then set a reminder to not lose her, get…
