Words that mean it

Written by Grace


I've recently written a collection of poems and I would like it if you would post them on the website. They come in a sort of. . . Book, so you can keep them together. The 'collection' is called: Words that mean it.


Why can’t I not be useless?

Why can't I be bothered?

Why can't I be a rebel?

Why can’t I be a friend?

Why can’t I act normal?

Why can’t I just be who I feel like. The person who wants to take the knife out of the drawer. . .

End it.


One sorry.

Two sorrys.

One sorry more.

If sorry was a word.

I’d say it again.

Once more.



There, gone

Left again

The people you prayed

That would never go

But are then gone.

‘Friends’ is not a word

Then again, it’s not a thing

It’s non - existent

To nobody but the people

Who lost it more than once.


They beg and I say no.

No .

Makes you forget.


I said it. I mean it.


That doesn’t mean I want it.


No, just no.

Just one haiku

This is a haiku

Just to add more effect

I don’t know, not now.

Hey Mathilda. No, I have never written a book called "No Name" in my whole life. But plz tell me which website are you talking about. Thanks

Hey, Arya, are you the Arya who wrote "No Name" on the German website? I just wanted to ask... Greetings, Matti

The first poem is so me. And also someone I made up so I can have a friend. His name is Zacharias and he doesn’t know who he is

These poems are incredible and hauntingly beautiful. I can sense a budding Emily Dickinson!

This collection is beautiful and moreover, honest and heartfelt. I hope you are having a wonderful day — this set is quite sad, which makes it all the more alluring
