as time creeps past, the walls grow stronger
no one told us that we'd get older
that as we grew, each meeting grew colder
and no one warned us of the danger
so, when I see you, I see a stranger.

Sweet and spicy, new a fixation

Another fairytale that's happening in reality
Sweet and cute but yet so unrealistic
That's how it all begin
As my dreams fly high away with each step we took
The end came nearer without we notice it
The way eyes meeting each other without trust
Why didn't I notice that I need to wake up?
Sharing same stare with different emotions
The way our eyes meet radiates doubt, alert and wary
But none of us know the end approach
And when it's time to realize, it's too late
The way we're doubting each other
Days we filled with fight and debate
Both of us failed to notice the signal
And no one tried to wake from the illusion
When it's time to wake up from the sweet illusion
None of us will be ready for the change and the depart
As the days go by, the difference radiates more
But I failed to notice your wary glance
We failed to notice the tension between
The string tying both of us destined loosened
Maybe I don't want to realize and notice
My fixed decision make it worst
010. Disillusionment "Elementary school will be fun," they said010. Disillusionment 3 weeks ago in Free Verse More Like This
So I walked in with a smile
And, at first, I enjoyed it
But I got bored after a while.
So my parents put me in the gifted program
And then moved us to Maryland
But pretty much everyone hated me there
But, hey, I did make a few friends!
"Middle school will be fun," they said
So I walked in with a grin
I felt so old and so mature
I was totally there to win!
But everyone there was cruel
Spreading countless rumors about my friends and I
I lost most of my friends when my secret got out
And I really just wanted to die!
"High school will be fun," they said
So I walked in, gay as can be
You know, using the word in the joyful sense
Although, I realized I was, actually.
I had some terrible teachers
And my best friend left me in the dust
But by then I had so many other great friends
That high school wasn't a total bust!

004. Childhood MemoriesI remember my childhood days004. Childhood Memories1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
The surprise party for my fifth birthday
Jumping rope and skinning my knee
Picking alien buds from the alien bud tree
Santa and the Easter Bunny really came
Wanting to be grown up and dreaming of fame
Being tattled on for playing with my mary jane shoe
Accidentally making Nathan cry in reading group
Riding my bike all around the town
Flipping on bars 'till the sun went down
Doing gymnastics, didn't end well at all
My best friend wouldn't let my climb his tree one fall
Always being nice to the bullied boys and girls
Squealing the first time I saw Disney World
Then my family moved out of state
With better schools, my education would ameliorate
But a few years after moving to Maryland
The happy, giddy nine year old would come to an end
Like before, I tried to befriend everyone
But no matter what I did, it was me they'd shun
I came to the conclusion that they were all bad
And the only ones to trust were the few friends I had
Gradually, I faded to black
Gates of HeavenWhat is this world we’ve createdGates of Heaven2 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where evil is rampant
And good must live on in fear
Tears fall like raindrops
And no heart is safe
Heaven please answer our prayer
Throw open the Gates of Heaven
Send forth the angels
To gather the broken
To end all the devil’s schemes
We pray for an end to our sorrow
We pray for an end to the pain
Hold out for a candle in darkness
So we may see again
When we don’t understand why this happened
We hold on to hope of your power
The Gates of Heaven are open to me
Alleluia Alleluia Amen
We cry out, we cry out
O God of infinite wisdom
We don’t need a reason why
Just promise us, promise us, promise us
There’s hope beyond this night

A world without patriotism and bravery?
Can you imagine a forest without trees?
Barren and lonely, with no place to hide?
Where creatures vanish before your eyes.
Can you imagine a house without a single soul in it?
Soundless and still as if it is the quitest pond
without even the movement of a fish?
Can you imagine a playground without a slide?
Without the inspirational sound of children laughing
As they run through the land free?
Can you imagine? I sure can't!
(My youngest brother who is 20 y.o. wrote this while in elementary school.)

safety gate to keep away the ghosts in my head.
Higher and higher, a birds journey.
A place to preserve the freedom,
dreams to cling on to on the monkey bars.
The children's happiness lingers here,
clearing my thoughts for now.
I want this taste of lightness to
extend on infinitely.

Vile and a hater,
Who had my trust
Now crushed to dust!
What is your motive,
What did I not give,
To secure our bond?
Was I the one conned?
Well I really think
That YOU broke our link.
In the end YOU lied,
Cast our ties aside!
I offered up my all,
Was behind your every fall,
You mostly did the same,
But it was just a sick game!
You are the traitor,
The vile hater.
I’m no longer serving,
Ditch someone deserving!

Trying to stop crying, to once more see all this with hopeful eyes
He loves you, they both do, but one is a trap covered in lace,
The other denies it all
John, I warn you, be mindful of the heart.
Too many long years spent yearning,
Believing, in the goodness of people, in God and Santa Claus
When three partake in a sign of three,
Another arrival can mean another passing,
Like a knock on the door heard by a party seated
John, I hope you kept your funeral suit
Can we go back to the beginning, the false start of all things?
So much more love in a world that never was
A mystery holds such starlight, not meant for the breathing masses
Hold that hummingbird of yours for a moment
Speak clearly for a second and it might just save your lives
John, tell him, so all this pain can end

that covered your soul,
you revealed who you were
and who you are whole,
you showed my your world
a divine view,
but I still refused
refused to know you.
You spoke the words
about who you are,
words I didn't want to hear
no,not from afar,
You tried to open my eyes
and give me light,
but instead I stepped back
because I was in fright,
I was afraid I'd break your trust
like a broken mirror and a glass,
Why did you trust someone like me
when I can never make you happy?
Why did you show me what's deep inside
and ignore the darkness that reside,
Why of all the good people you've met
why have you chosen the one you'll surely regret?
. . . . .
I thought I was a figure of lies
until you finally opened my eyes,
You let me see what's in your heart
and there was something in me
that struck me like a dart,
Your heart was a mirror
and there my reflection stood
and I was looking at myself,
I saw our differences..
That made us humans
that made us strong

It was probably

A victim alone,

uncertain of truth.
Soft dancing, twirling,
bouncing in the tearing wind,

My Acrostic PoemSome days were filled with joy, others were filled with fights.My Acrostic Poem5 months ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Here we are, standing and looking at each other like we’re strangers.
A song is played in my head as it drifts and goes through my thoughts now,
Unfaithful by Rihanna.
Never did I imagine that I would relate my life to this song,
I was unsure but you were unfaithful to me.
Many days have gone by since then.
I have moved on but I wonder,
Some things are better meant to be unknown.
Hearts are a fragile thing,
Easily broken by the sharpest words.
Love is unbound and tame but that was not love.
Love shouldn’t be broken by your tainted thoughts.
Of all the things that could have happened, that was the last thing I wanted.
Games are what you played and I was the pawn you used for chess,
So easily thrown away and never appreciated like the pawn.
Don’t take my words so lightly because there is one thing you should know,
Out of all the guys in the world I have trusted,
None of them have compared to your actions.

Smiling and chatting with his friends
I wish someday he would notice me . . .
The sparkle in his chocolate eyes
The amiability in his face
Only makes me love him more and more . . .
The first time I saw him was in a summer camp
He was reticent yet so kind
The flames of a first love lit the tiny, cold lamp
Embedded deep within my heart!
When I see your smiling face, I’m filled with happiness
When I hear your soft voice, I long to sing
I don’t know what’s this burning pain inside me
But I know I never want to leave your side
Here we are in middle school
With all those from our childhood
Everything just as it was before . . .
You smiling with your own friends
I talking with new acquaintances
But you still linger in my thoughts . . .
My young love for you has never extinguished
In fact it has grown more and more
From a flickering tongue into an raging inferno
Remolding my naïve mind!
And as this pain inside continues to intensify
So does this i

Sleep no more child , open your eyes!
Your dream is over and a nightmare has begun.
You will never see the sun.
The Sachiko Charm is what brought you here ,
Don't worry dear , nothing to fear.
But murdering , scissor welding , villainous scum.
Oh , but your nightmare has just began!
Heavenly Host Elementary. Such a dangerous place.
Unforgettable challenges you must face.
The corpses look down on you , they beg for appease.
Damn! Where are the entrance keys!
The closed spaces keep you apart.
Please , always remember the truth in your heart.
The young ghost children. They want their mother.
They all died painfully. One after the other.
In order to leave , in order to go.
You must repeat the charm.
But remember , once for Sachiko.
An extra chant is all it takes.
But remember your scrap , or raise the stakes.
KeithI was the creepy girl you saw in those moviesKeith5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
The one hidden behind a wall
Breathing too loud
Her red anxious skin blotched with creepy scratches
Were they from cats, or dogs, or from her very own hand?
Nonetheless you were afraid
Cause I smelled bad too
Like raw meat
The last bits of breakfast
Stained my clearance sale shirt
I was the girl stalking you
Her blue suspenders clanking
The gum underneath my shoes slurping right beside you
You were scared
The air around your nose
Suddenly smelled like sweaty girl
You backed away, blinked
I was your first admirer
Scary as it was
But I liked you
Sorry it was me
But you were the only boy in school
Who never ran away.
