Between life and deathBetween life and death6 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
again and again on my knees
broken by those who should help me stand
not sad nor happy in this life
and getting up
again and again
after every fall
more determined to keep standing
more desperate to avoid another
depression doesn´t hurt
it´s beyond limits of sadness
beyond any other feeling known by mam
being alive is too hard
there are easier ways around
why to stand up after fall?
stubbornly holding on worthless things
patiently crying when no one hears
broken pieces glued together
effort testing limits of strength
buying time to find more will
forgetting to smile
what did it feel like
for the last time?
FarewellThe sudden void into the unhinged mind of a demented soul,Farewell22 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
The rapture of a lucid dream, falling into an obliterated consciousness
The devastating coma of a genius protagonist, completing the epic tale of a life
It was all but a dream, a chimera, an excruciating lie.
The nothingness digging its claws into a cryptic vision,
The finality of a banal, vain existence
Never to be remembered, nor praised for its perpetual battle against agony.
There is nothing,
Nothing but the sharp sound of shattering glass,
Nothing but a hollow shell on the edge of the world.
This is where I depart, this is where I bow down,
This is where my crude hatred vanishes with my existence
There is nothing but a vague memory, of a silent soldier walking against the wind,
The pallid remembrance of a once scintillating simper
Good fortune to you all, for my path lies beneath the river
And with it, a single breathe to be released upon all as a somber farewell.
Fairy Tale GirlFairy tale little girl.Fairy Tale Girl1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
She wears a crown upon her head,
And befriends the monsters under her bed.
She sings songs to birds.
But no one ever heard
Her cries when the castle walls came tumbling down.
Real world little girl.
She weaves herself a fantasy inside her mind.
Hoping to find
The same peace from when she was young.
And she's like water colors.
So soft, and easily washed away.
She is the soft blues in the morning of a new day.
I found her hiding within her tower.
Far above the real world below.
She is so broken but never lets it show,
So desperate for some fairy tale ending.
She asked me quietly one day,
'Do you think the world will ever be like my story books?'
I thought for a moment before replying,
'In order to survive there are some bad things you have to overlook.'
'The world is grey.'
I heard her say one day.
As if accepting the odd mixture of good and bad.
Her voice sounded happy and sad,
All at once.
As she ripped away the last page
In her story book.

So evil and wrong
She acts so sweet
When the days are long
When the night comes
She moves toward her prey
Not towards the lively
But towards the near dead that lay
They're not dead yet
But act in this way
The sadness and depression
Is all that will stay

They are in the air that I breathe,
In the water that I drink
In the earth that I stand on
And in the fire that I hold in my hand
These words make up my being and prove that I exist.
They make up my bones that keep me standing
They make up my muscles that give me strength
They make up my blood and my heart where my passion lies
And they make up my soul and my mind that connect me with God.
My words are my sword and my shield.
They are my breath,
They are my strength,
They are my blood,
They are my soul...
These words are who I am.
I am a poet
I am a writer
I am a storyteller
I am what I will always be...

show not, your practiced smile.
hum that tune
slicing piano wire.
I stand, amazed,
jaw broken to drop
in the slicing of a tear,
Never having conceived. Before
the cards are played.
You see, I never been in love before.
If I had, I would know such pain.
Now the peaks are valleys
and valleys just flat.
So I look to the mountains. Imagine
the young, fallen snow.
and long for rivers to reign over me.
Happy and HollowThere’s a lump in my throat, rocks in my gutHappy and Hollow11 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Want to run but I won’t, can’t get out of this rut
I’m still not the person that I want to be
But slowly I’m learning what it means to be me
Can’t see where I’m headed, I can’t hear a sound
So I feel for the walls as I stumble around
Hoping so badly that I’ll find a hold
And if I stop moving I’ll rot and I’ll mold
I spend countless hours killing time each day
Just hoping and dreaming for a map, or a way
At the times I want something so bad I can taste it
And the universe won’t give it up, I just fake it
They all think that I’m happy, doing just fine
But these thoughts in my skull drive me out of my mind
They never let go, held hostage in my head
And it takes all my energy to just rise from bed
Don’t know where I’m headed, barely know where I’ve been
Looking for something to make me whole once again
It’s not in a b

IS THIS SOCIETY BASED AROUND LOOKS OR MONEY?
Because if it is?

That girl you guilt tricked into loving her,

THAT IS WHY SHE REJECTED YOU,

On her own sister...
She is the one who is protecting her family,

As the sky begins to fall down
He asks "What do we make of this?"
Don't worry, we'll all be dead
It's okay that they're scared
Looking up at the Earth from space
All saying "What do we make of this?"
Don't worry, we'll all be dead
United in a soft embrace
But unable to set the pace
Wondering what we make of this
Don't worry, because we'll all be dead
We all believe in your light
You are so very bright
You make me wonder how the world goes round
But does it matter? We'll all be dead
Where do all the dying trains go?
Someplace high, or someplace low?
Do the trains know what this is?
Or do they care, since we'll all be dead?
Is it okay to be sad?
When you see the chains fall apart?
Where will I go now?
I know that I'll end up dead.
Why did he have to break the link?
And put us all on the brink?
How did it come to this?
All it means, is that soon, we'll all be dead.

Yet, I find, my soul lingers on,
I taste life still, however wrong.
So instead I follow,

Watching as I've grown,
living with me in our unknown.

A Leash That Keeps Pulling MeAnxiety and depressionA Leash That Keeps Pulling Me9 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's not something that can just go away instantly
It can't vanish
It can't just disappear in a instant
If not it can't vanish fully
It takes time
It take healing
And I am trying my hardest to heal
I am trying my hardest to become happy
But thing is
It is the hardest thing in the world
If my anxiety can just go away
If I had the choice for it to just go away from me
I would make it go as far as possible for it to leave
It's gonna take time to do that
As I am slowly trying to walk away from it
But it's pulling me on a string
It's holding me tightly
I am healing
I am not as bad as I use to be
And I try my hardest to not let it get to me
I am exhausted
It's like I'm on an emotional leash
I tug and I pull my hardest
But it pulls it back to it
It's a war
That only I fight within myself
It's a war against my own head
A war against myself
And worst thing is that I know it's winning
I know I can win it
But it fights harder than me
It is worse than attacks

Que preciso de um espelho
Que reflita minh'alma
Sob esse céu sem estrelas
Sobre esse chão sem terra
De frente e de costas pro que me espera.
Assim, reflexo do meu ser,
Acalme-me como nada consegue
Me aceite, lute, me renegue
O faça mesmo que nada rime
Ou então não me subestime
E veja através de meus olhos sorrisos
Que mais que triste, são vazios
Explique-me porque te busco
Anseio-te mais que a loucura o louco
Quase sempre me enjôo
Se em ti não consigo alívio
Não alcanço aquela paz viciante
Espero que de outras vozes
De outras mentes angustiadas
Encontre as palavras
Que já não escrevo mais
As que fogem de meus dedos
De minha caneta, de meu teclado
Mas não de meu espírito, nunca dele.

It can shape us
Or break us.
It can make a man fall to their very knees
There is a certain gentleness that comes with it
Until the deep fall,
That is when we are mad;
Madly in love that is
Certain things drive us crazy
Others not so much
We crave for attention
While lusting to be alone
But what they never told you in books or fairy tales,
Well that can kill you
They never told you that one may fall before the other
Or that some never fall at all
Yes love can be a beautiful thing..

Is that too much to ask?
I can not stand here and fail
Give me the required task
I will pay the bail
And hand you back the flask
Just take me with you
I want to take the bumpy path
No matter who is in the crew
I will take on your wrath
if you leave me to draw
Its the only raft I have
I want you to want me
Like the trees need the sun
Like the flowers need the bees
Because I want to be your honeybun
I will beg at your knees
As utterly pathetic as it makes me feel
I just want to make you smile

with embittered tally marks

you know it as well as how hard you clench your eyes shut,
as sharply as you are reminded your hands move like children

you pray for mockery and intimidation
before the cruelty of design.
the spaces between your fingers are unwashed
and your navel has been ignored for ages,
your tongue has its own silt of flith.
and she owns every nerve in the circuit that reminded you,
she pulls them up like weeds.
Early MorningsEvery morning I wake up. The sun arises me from a deep sleep. Every day counts. Those are what I keep. Ever morning will have a meaning, rain or shine. No matter what, I will cherish it and call it mine. Just like they say, "Every Rose Has It's Thorn", I'm just thankful that I was born, to see all the colors of the sky, day and night. Will I wake up tomorrow? I think I just might! To arise to color and light, it is just like saying early mornings are my life! Live every day as the last night on earth because every morning is like celebrating the worlds new birth!Early Mornings19 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This

At first, you came to me, crying for help
But now, you have forsaken me,
spitting at me as if I was some sort of whelp
The shattering of my heart was too great to bear…
greater than anything I have ever felt
Too little, too late, you’ve realized your mistake
You tried to rectify yourself, but the damage have been dealt
The knife has twisted, the salt has been rubbed into the wound
You’ve dug your own grave, you’ve had your chances
Now I laugh as I watch you try to lie me
as if you didn’t mock me with that fool you met at those dances
You cry out for help, as you did in years past
before you chose the losing side
“That man smashed my heart!”, you yell amidst your sobs
“That man cheated! That man lied!”
But I laugh, walking away from your figure
as I have no time for empty cries
“I have moved on, I have tried,” I say my voice cold and stern
You scream at my figure once more, but I
