I feel like breaking a few hearts,
Care to join me
I'm Done.You disrespect, first cry then rageI'm Done.8 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Mind went off like a hand grenade
Mentioned all that I've ever said and done
As if this were a war that couldn't be won
You spit out so much smoke you smother the fire
And my sanity is approaching the end of its wire
You scream and wail 'til my ears start bleeding
Like a scratched record that doesn't stop repeating
But I'm used to this arbitrary psychotic fit
So I bite my tongue and hope to forget
'Cause I know it's not what you really mean
But life's too short and I'm running out of steam
It's just the same old story with a different tune
And I know that it'll all be over soon
So I try to bide what time I have left
As you rant and yell and I start to go deaf
But this fight's been making me irresistibly weary
And I hide the pain that makes me unbearably teary
Though I die inside as your words start bending
My soul cries out for a different ending
My mental walls crumble from years of erosion
As I finally feel myself losing my sense of caution
UntitledI wanted to smileUntitled2 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
But couldn't quite bring it out
As I was dying inside
I wanted to drop everything and run
Run into your comforting arms once again
Every time I walked away
I had to wipe the tears that sprang to my eyes
I too wished to mouth
"I love you"
I regret that I didn't
Yes, I know this is just words and text
But you ask anyone
And they can tell you
I love you so much
I couldn't stay a moment more
Because you know who was standing there by the door
I am regaining his trust
As are you
And that could've shattered it for both of us
This wait is almost unbearably hard
But as you say
If it were easy
Then I would be questioning my feelings too
They haven't changed towards you
In fact, they grew
I pray you never question that
Never doubt how much I want to be with you
I lay here every night wish you were here too
I still believe
In that it is God's will
That it will one day come true
That you and I are meant to be
Know, I love you
With every single part of my heart
A Warning Unto The WearyAnd in the hours of the twilight duskA Warning Unto The Weary1 hour ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I spent days at my table looking through books
And upon one day I found a tome that spoke
It spoke words to my mind and words to my soul
It was filled with glory and of memories lost
But right at the end was a warning it left
A warning for me that I have never left
There is no evil that cannot be forgiven
And no good that cannot fall
None have walked in night that cannot walk in day
And none have walked in day that cannot walk in night
But it is not of evil men that the world will burn
And not of good who will rise to heaven
For only hope can hate what it once did love
And only from sin can redemption be earned

Silly strings of words
Strung up all around
As the world turns
Here I am found
Written pages fall,
Scattered here and there
Ink breaks the walls
I'll be back I swear
When the books open,
All the plays end,
And what's fixed is broken
I have nothing left to defend
So once again I am here
To try and start anew
Even if nothing's clear,
This was long overdue.

You will not see,
Yet- does not matter
Much to me.
For in my heart
I give you this-
A hug, a kiss.
For in my mind
Your day will shine with
Every handshake, smile
For in my body
My being helps you
You will not see,
Yet- does not matter
Much to me.
Aveinish WarA war is only won, after battles are plenty.Aveinish War44 minutes ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The war wearied mind, it battles on empty.
With no more to give, and theres nothing to spare
As the mind is defeated , the soul is stripped bare.
Dismantled the mind is preparing to fight.
With the fear and loathing pursuing respite .
As battles begin, demons release their hold.
Strength diminishing I surrender my soul.
The playground of demons is destructions path.
Rejoicing and feasting at the aftermath.
Execution being the price to be paid.
Ironic I be the one wielding the blade.
This is the moment that pain will find course.
From an open wound the blood flows with force.
I feel my life bleed out, is this how I die.
But who opened the vein, the demons or I.
They'll Never KnowThey'll never knowThey'll Never Know8 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Across the world
Unreachable to me
Their fame and fortune
They'll never see
My true inspiration
They keep me going
They lift me up
They pull me from the shadows
That creep in my mind
Pulling me deeper
Leaving reality behind
They bring the truth
To the surface
bringing me back
Fragile as lace
they make me stronger
able to stand
tall and alone
Upon the sand
They're my life
my only reason
to continue on
through every season
they save me daily
making me free
And they'll never know
what they mean to me
Another Night Another DayAnother night, another chance to seeAnother Night Another Day8 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
How people all around try to perceive me
Another day, another chance to try
To keep everyone happy that's in my life
Pushed around and taken for granted
It's everything they ever wanted
Take advantage of my generous faith
Until the time we've spent has gone to waste
Another night, another chance to be
Someone you've always wanted me to be
Another day, another chance to lie
About how you really make me feel inside
My trust is broken and left to pieces
And every faith I had in people ceases
And with another night a day will come
Until I am completely, one hundred percent done
Dark spots in me.The journal of a broken man it isDark spots in me.5 hours ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
With these tears helping me drown it's a warm night
My window stays open so I can see the sky
what happened to the stars tonight where have they gone
Nothing ever goes my way Everything always goes wrong
I would sit and wait and write on my desk
I could walk around town and relax in the park
But I look at how everyone is tired of the world we live in
I wish that this all could change Not just for me but them
I hate what it does to me I can't sleep at night
The lines on my face for each year goes by
I'm sick from my pain but It's sad I know
I let out my tears when I write "Why did you go?"
The sky turned grey and the night is so empty
My heart is getting colder I don't think it can bleed
The night gets darker and the sun never rises
Just give me an answer that's all I really need
It'd cold where I am
I can stop crying
It's dark where I am
I can stop searching
It's quiet where I am
I can't hear you
It's over where I am
and I miss you.
Punish The SurviverPunish The SurvivorPunish The Surviver8 hours ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Poison in the needle
Inject the child
Reality is a cruel mistress
Ones that escape her grasp are praised
The sting is strong, the needle stabbing through the skin
Pain flows like blood
Push me down, I shall rise again
Punish The Survivor!
The one at fault is you
Why am I the one getting the hate?
Liar, harlot, all these words to describe who I am not
Battle after battle I have yet to see your white flag
Let us bleed, let us fall
Your words are poison to my self worth
Whisper your haunting words (you belong to me)
No, I never belonged to you
I cannot be bought, I will not let you use me
Punish me for doing the right thing
And you wonder why the statistics are so high
Your kiss full of hate, blissful blind hate
Regret has never crossed your mind
A growing sense of fear
You won't see me cry
You won't get the satisfaction
Screaming echoes off the walls
The truth burning your house of lies
Blood drips out of my wounds

Father, I don't know
I am trusting You
Help me stay strong, Lord
I will never stop needing You
Thank you for holding
My broken pieces together
Even though I feel like
I'm falling apart inside
Let the one I love most on earth
Trust You too
Hold him tight, Jesus
For each moment we will have spent apart
You will make each moment together
All the more precious

I can't believe it.
I gave them a reason.
I know I don't belong, Yet I'm with them for no reason.
I'm hard to understand, they're easy to explain.
But I speak the truth of them they call me insane.
You say I'm problem when I am the victim.
You are fucked up ones, my story is a sitcom.
No, more like a drama because that's all you guys give me.
My mind is shattered, yall beat then I'm battered.
It's the injuries I receive that you guys never see.
I hide my feelings from you guys, because yall seem to criticize,
That I am always the different and you believe I have no life.
I did at one point, but now I have died.
You guys came in the picture and became parasites.
I am your host, you guys cannot see.
You fill me sadness, and it eats at me.
I cannot take it, my heart, you all have breaked it.
My love is what take, it will be yall I will forsake.
She was the only one, who could show me love.

the light glistering off the dew in the morning
these hill stretch so far like a welcoming path
a restless sun above shines with all its might
sitting on these hills with the reflection off water
and the dazzling blades of grass briskly moving
with every passing breeze of wind
this is blissful this is a slice of heaven
staring at this vast plane
the true nature of this world
is not as simple as a busy street
or the for every moving industrial giants
for even just once lay in this grass
enjoy this world we call home
listen to the chirps of birds
and the breeze blowing the grass
this is our world this is your home
a giant ball covered in water and dirt
filled with life filled with heat
for the grass is dazzling with the morning dew
let it burn it self into your eyes and memories
and smile since this experience is the world

He likes to chomp on heads
Steven a beast among man
He likes the taste of flesh
Steven larger as a bear
Such red stained fur
A weapon for a killer
Who needs knives
Who needs arrows
When you have a bear
That hungers for flesh
That feeds on heads
My honey Steven
My little baby bear
My pet I love
We will die together
Just like the way
We kill together

Who You AreYour delicacy is the finest chinaWho You Are4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Your presence the full moons effect on the sea
Your voice melts icebergs
You also have this effect on me
My walls come down, my shield cracks and breaks
My rules and boundaries bend, eventually broken by your grace
You're full and deep, you're a million insightful books
You can't learn you so quickly like the others, you're much more than a gorgeous look
Your pureness is gold and diamonds,
And the sparkling water running off thousand feet Ozark mountains
You resonate originality, genuineness - real and raw
I stand in front of you, eyes locked on yours, and I'm in awe
You are a god, after all
Your lips aren't poison, they heal the sick
Would you prescribe me an infinite dose of them
Your passion is fire, roaring huge and high
Not rain, lack of oxygen or the strongest winds extinguish your drive
When I speak with you I forget all else
Your gentleness demands my attention, I just melt
Your intellect matches not your age
Too massive to be confi
A Poem DreamtShe sits on goldenrod sandA Poem Dreamt6 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The wind goddess blowing bubbles from her hand
Her silken dress dances in the air
As she wispers life into being
She who was formed from a broken shell
Will transform once again with the moon
An owl oversees the wheat gardens
And a swan will never sing
The wolf swallows his howl
As the picture paints itself
There is no pain
There is no Hell
All that surrounds His creatures
I crave that warmth so desperately
It now comforts me in my dreams
The feverish rush to write
Runs further than my glossy sight
Old patterns do not break
New patterns do not form
But the patterns in my soul
Exist to transform
It is life to be held
From that first crying babe
To the widow leaving her earthly home
The only one she has ever known
Became foreign without love
So she is spreading her wings
Like the swan
Like the owl
Above the mists of grass
High as the ark will sail
The wind goddess welcomes her
To take her place
There is a man behind it all
One no one has ever seen

Their inside happiness,
That's where jealousy starts
How can I enjoy my own time,
With no one on my side?
It's a war
Only telling narrow stories
Deep inside lives the lie
I never wanted to provoke this
I'm another one in the crowd,
Just someone on the name list,
And the sassy doesn't stay away
But I don't feel human at all
Who the hell still has a heart?
I don't even know
At the knife's tip
On the top of the mountain
Here lays my lair
Of love I cannot share
Scatter pieces and glass
How can I move on,
If I'm not your last?
I'm just someone

The hesitation tingles on my fingertips as they shiver
How much further am I getting,
If this chaos seems too bitter?
Maybe I was in love all along
With nobody in reality
So here were nobody belongs
It's such a fatality
Heartbroken, I search for my final conclusion
Maybe it's not time yet?
Let me analyze
All the fights I've colored red
So maybe love is just this puzzle
A riddle continuing to blur
I can't hear through my own fuss
Of thinking so insecure
I could be the mainstream girl
One sitting at edges and ends
The wind whirl
That blows through someone's hair
The jolly and the happy
Pass me by
It all seems too crappy
I can't ask you why
Oh if I could, I fear I'd lie
So if this emotion is temporary
I'll stick to my confusion
But things can be really scary
With my trust issues
Am I just a mainstream one,
The one you won't even notice?
Ever to know I even exist
Or is there a final plot twist?
Promise me, gently
Maybe you can see the true me
So maybe eve
Her... VIIHer... VII5 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Once I was unsure,
But not for second bouncing in betwixt the solitude of exponentially unmotivated cold lonely hearted moments you captured me from, Seeing the vast distinguished potential in you by moonlight; Where I stand in awe of honesty attempting to find the daily bet of love inspired unqualified words to venture forth as speech, for I never had to acquire a taste for your beauty, I awoke as one from a malignant puppet's debt woven dream, Standing before the proof that life should exist at all amidst these thousands of sandcastling stars.
And lo, she graciously extinguishes my fears with an existence of daily valentines I celebrate at her side... I was sure about you since the beginning of everything, for surely the bargain of this universe is love, and by her adorkable code of poetic chivalry shall I abide!
