I'm tall, a little over six feet, and now that I'm not shooting meth I'm roughly 230 pounds. My right arm is inked from my shoulder  to my knuckles. I have tattoos on my left fingers and my forearm and one on my neck, all total I have 25 tattoos.
I wear baggy clothes and flatbill hats, and I listen to punk rock and rap. My drug and alcohol counselor told me that because of my size and the way I look people see me as intimidating. Also that I have a blunt straightforward personality that adds to that overall impression.
I grew up going back and forth between my...

This is NOT a poem. to my lovely follows and other DU members and guests. I have some wonderful news. but first a little story that may not have best grammar. I'm just too excited to use proper grammar. I'll correct later.
I just took a big step. My dream ever since I was a little girl was to be a singer. My grandma got me singing when I first saw her sing in her church choir. It was amazing. watching my grandma sing. It was like she was in a whole different world. and I remember think to myself. "I want that." Ever since then. I've been singing. In 8th grade I was in the talent show at...

That's all I want
But I want it with you
Of course I want you to make it
I'll do something nice for you later
I promise
I'll even watch a movie with you
One of the many on the DVR
You won't have to watch the Knicks
Lose again
It's a day game anyway
Movie tonight
Popcorn optional

In a Valley, in between
two Great Mountains sits
a snow covered cabin
From afar, all You can
see of it, is Smoke rising
from its chimney, into the
sky
It's not a big cabin but
it's perfect to the person
living there
When You walk out the door
there is a Wonderful river
filled with so many fish,
that You couldn't count
them
Deer, nonchalantly walk
across the yard looking for
food and to drink from the
water
A man sits at the window
watching the snow falling
ever so quietly
He grabs His coat...

My thoughts speak louder
The faster my eyes run
bending, breaking the cycle
an old one at that
coming from lonesome encounters
dibs on the tree branches!

You'll die! ...okay?
Yeah its fun to scream randomly
at cats especially
makes their ears cringe
like a gag reflex
but confound me not little one
for I have things to attend too
mice to abide
kites to fly
mice to trap
traps to set
trapped myself aswell
it isn't easy
or so they say
its just another cup of joe

hey empty glass i'm glad we meet again.
you seem so clear i see right through you what happened man?
don't worry i'll fill you up then we can make a plan.
soon this night will come alive when the moments right.
bottoms up all i see is this drink in sight.
i'm feeling woozy i'm feeling light.
i'm feeling a rage inside.
as soon as i get my fill i'm quite alright.
trying to write on paper has never been more hard.
it seems the paper and pencil are miles apart.
i can't scratch a single word.
so i doodle instead i try so hard but what i get is dead....

Wrote this when I was 18 I am 28 now.
Dear Father,
You were suppose to be there for me
Not leaving me without knowing me
Build a relationship no one can tear
Share laughs no one can share
Shed tears no one can shed
I'm suppose to say I hate you and slam my door
Not you closing the door on us
You suppose to be my protector my hero
We suppose to have so many memories
Yet we have none
Only the pictures of a face I never saw
You wrote to me inô 2001 when u had no one
You were locked up and to spite the past I was there...

DU Poetry : Non-Fiction Prose: Diary Entries, Letters and Articles

Published on 6th January 2015 2:10am
Written by prestonGibson
Just grass. Fucking grass.
How was anyone to know that beneath this plot of earth rested the center of a little boy's universe?
How could they know?
Aside from the poorly dug up holes in the ground.
Holes that held top secret letters from years past written by a lost boy desperately trying to reach out and connect to the stars.
My heart felt as empty as that grave looked.
My family never had much money to speak of and the cost of tomb stones seemed an unrealistic idea seeing as I NEEDED something there for her immediately.
So I got...

I once was with a guy (for a number of years actually) that would always kiss me with his eyes open. Me, being slightly weirded out by the whole idea inqured about it. His response would prove to haunt me to this day and change the conventional way I once saw things.
Me: Why do you do that?
[him]: Do what?
Me: I keep catching you looking around when you're kissing me. Do you not feel anything from it?
[Him]: *Laughing* I kiss you with my eyes open in order to feel something.
Me:. . .
[Him]: I keep my eyes open so that I can see you. I like knowing its you that...

in the mist of deserted streets of this town i walk towards embankment where chain of bridges is to be seen ,    
bridges which always vulnerate me to the core..    
   
it was one bridge..i never known it's name  since i knew it just like 'rip bridge'..because of this graffiti 'rip 'which was scribled upon the lamps of handrail and then sprayed by different colour .. walking on and off via this bridge i thought on those unknown and unwanted who were too tall and nerveous to endure 'what is to endure',and have freed themself by...

I haven't written in forever...so much has happened it's unreal.
Six months ago I was arrested and thrown in jail for a sexual assault case of which I was innocent, however, backwoods justice being what it is I was afraid I was going to prison.
Finally, in November shortly before my preliminary hearing my attorney convinced the county prosecutor to drop the charges.
He dismissed them without prejudice meaning that any time in the next five years they have the option to refile charges.
While out on bond I started dating a woman I met in a gas...

I guess I am in a very dark place right now. And I walk around like a shadow. A dark stain squirming along the sidewalk, unable to touch or feel or be loved. It hurts everyday, laying out in the cold. Trying to see through the darkness, nobody daring to come close. On my birthday I sat in an empty theater, watching a shitty movie and that was pretty much the best option that became available to me. It was the complete opposite of what I was supposed to be doing. She was so sweet with her words and intentions but I ended up alone, in a lonely car in a cold parking lot talking to my parents as...

I sit and watch the raindrops fall individually on the pavement.
How vast of a sea would those raindrops be if they just came together.
The weight of that concept is as heavy on my chest as the water being set free by the sky above me.
It's a strange and humbling experience.
The realization that I am the same as the rain.
I'm made up of the same stardust that the rain is.
We all are.
How vast of a sea would we all be if we just came together.

I bet my life that you have heard this all before,
That sometimes life gets ruff,
But that's never a reason to give up.
Just keep your head up,
Because I know you can.
Always keep your best foot forward.
Its never over,
Unless you make it that way.
So follow your dreams,
Never let people drag you down.
I bet my life you forgot how it feels,
To be yourself.
But just know,
That even in the hardest of times,
I will be there.
I will be there when you are sad,
When you wish to take your life,
When no one else is there,
When...

forever and ever
is what they used to say
forever until that day
is what they say now
perfect best friends
perfect sisters
perfect twins
perfect everything
each have their own story
each told it so differently
each held each others hands
each keep the other strong
never thought they would stop
stop being friends
stop being sisters
stop being twins
you would have never thought
it would be over a boy
a boy that one loved
the other ignored
a stupid boy
