The Girl With WaterColor Eyes and a Sad SmileI really wish,The Girl With WaterColor Eyes and a Sad Smile13 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
You’d open up your eyes.
Look away from the blinding light.
Of all those things you always compare yourself to.
I wish you’d notice all the pretty little things,
Not all the imperfect things,
That you wish you could change.
Or you simply wish you could take scissors and a sewing needle,
To rid yourself of the trouble.
Of being you.
You don’t see the quiet little details,
Like your water color eyes.
That are perfectly green,
And blue that add to their bright sheen.
The soft colors run into each other,
Like a splash of color from a paint brush.
But they keep they’re brilliance,
So only the people who take the time to appreciate them,
Can see the way they sparkle,
Even when they’re filled with tears to their brim.
You can’t notice the smile,
That always seems to be in denial.
That they’ll ever be good enough.
But it in itself is proof that you are.
That it’s soft and perfect.

Kiss my skin.
Let the chill
Reach my bones.
Let the heat
Dissipate beneath me.
Let the warmth
Fade under the shadows.
Let the dark
Consume the light.
Overcome the white.
Let the rain fall,
Patter on the ground.
Let it fall
Till I drown.

Don't send me to sleep,
Wanna know why?
Cause I don't,
While you sleep,
I dream of skies,
And bleed out stars
Maybe I should just,
Runaway to the city,
So that I can,
Find my same breed,
Of artists and dreamers
Even if the circles,
Under my eyes are dark,
And I don't get enough sleep,
Just back off,
And let me work,
Even if it is,

beat goes my heart
a leaf falls in the forest
landing in a puddle of rainwater
before the earth drinks
beat goes my heart
a wolf looks to the moon
and howls to let the others
know where it treads
beat goes my heart
even though my body is dead.

You may not know me
But today I hope that, you are very happy.
Please don’t be sad, please don’t be blue.
Because you are perfect, just being you.
I know that I don’t have much of a clue,
Everything is a big question mark;
About who you are or what you like to do
I’m still quite in the dark,
But please know my words are true.
I really hope that you smile;
Even if it’s just a tad.
Take a break from your worries for a while.
Just sit back and relax; it’ll be rad.
With the halls all decked up in style.
Memories of the West WindAfter the full moon I breatheMemories of the West Wind10 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
across the ocean
and remember old sailing ships
catching me softly.
And I remember those who stood
at the high mast,
and saw the stars
and wavelets kissed by moonlight
before I smoothed them gently to shore.
And the land was always
beyond reach and never Home.
And below creaking decks
men hunched and sang
of their desires,
through a grog-filled haze
that set the mast askew
and painted the sky gold for many days.
And though many other crafts
have skimmed the waters,
I loved too much the fulsome beauty
of a sail filled with my breath
and the earthy, raucous singing
of sea shanties that lingered
long after the ships had passed.
And I took all of myself to those ships,
my warmth and compassion
that fluttered – as waving hands
from loved ones on the shore.
I shared with those aboard, promises of their future
and pasts wreaked with ravages of Breakers.
I lingered in hearts torn by storm and battle,
assuaged the fears of young boys
But Not You (Poem)The stars at night sit still in the dark skyBut Not You (Poem)18 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
None of them daring to move or to fly
Some think of it as forbidden or taboo
But not you
Leaving your post over the sleeping land below
You flew down and tried to show
That anything is possible if you try
And if you just say goodbye
Goodbye to the weights holding you down
Goodbye to the lies and the frown
And learn to say hello
Hello to the stars you left long ago
Greet them all with nothing but smiles
A smile that can be seen from the many miles
The miles that separate the possible from the not
You might think that's a lot
You might think that there's no impossibilities
And that there's infinite probabilities
And that's definitely true
Because nothing is impossible to you
Lilies of a Dark LordOpening up my soul, I rise from out of this dreamLilies of a Dark Lord3 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Creeping around me are the shadows once kept at bay
As I move with the rhythm of my Spirit Guide
I find and welcome one dark partner, then another
Oh take from me this memory of light
Break me, shake me, take me,
Bleed me, smother me, stab me
Wildness comes into the forest where I now dwell
Calling my name oh so wickedly soft
My eyes close, my hand extends, I feel his touch
Ice falls ore me like an answer to the pain
He leans over me, we waltz to his haunting melody
Lips find mine, lifeless tasting of death
I cannot but yield, teeth find me and the prick
Is nae near as sharp as my heart breaking shattering to the floor
Oh yes lord, drink of me, make me your consort
Wake oh awake in me shadows of nothingness
Make me over again, for I have no need of feeling nor heart
Then I taste it, sweet wine of the shadows, life’s flow
And I know I shall lie under the lilies of his gaze forever more.

The graceful chin,
Whilst wandering eye,
catalouges cute button nose.
I would lean in slowly
lips slightly pursed,
I'd kiss you, like a question,
Gentle but firm,
slow but not lazy
not with passion ablaze,
but with hot embers banked,
for a time.
And that is how I would wish to kiss,
A beautiful girl.
Breathing in our Bird CageSometimes I forget all I've been through,Breathing in our Bird Cage11 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Why you could so easily break my heart,
Sometimes I dream about the nightmares,
Demons that could tear us apart.
Sometimes I watch you in silence,
Washing the shadows from my mind.
As you open to my soul, and take a step through
A million beady-eyed demons are waiting for you,
They grimace as your footprints re-create a path
One they've spent time breaking
O'weary warrior continue forth,
The relief I feel is consuming
Driving, twisting, falling, feeling
Move with me, be my healing.
You stand before the cage, watch as I sit and swing
Not a bird or feather about, only a girl to be seen
Rags of many colours, and a song to strike away the doom,
The cage is my freedom, don't believe it's my tomb.
Cautiously, you step forward and you open a hand,
But instead of letting you free me, I give you a tug
You tumble into my bird cage, and I give the door a lock
Now we wrap together in a toe-tingling embrace,
And laugh at the shock that befalls each demonic

EmptinessNow everything has changedEmptiness15 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
My days are boring
And my nights are long and lonely
You were the best and worst thing that ever happened to me
I should regret you, but I don’t
But soon we will probably part our ways
I should hate you more, but some stupid part of me, despite the anguish, still loves you
But what would you care?
I’ll admit it was fun while it lasted
It was usually a happy affair
But without you I feel empty
I should be glad, but my heart just feels empty
For its greatest fear is loneliness
The emptiness won’t go away
But you kept me company
And gave me joy
But all must end
But the emptiness in this empty feeling remains

There is an ancient,
That lies beneath,
Some say he's a legend,
But, this cannot be true.
Many think him dead,
Yet breaths still leave him.
Sitting in a throne of the dead,
With a crown of bleeding skulls upon his head.
Skin pale and white,
For he hasn't seen the light.
Shadows he hides within,
His six red eyes piercing the veil.
Drinking from a goblet of blood,
Idly holding a sword of despair.
Clothed in black robes,
Tattered, ripped, and beaten.
His heart does not pound,
For it has never been found.
His body still lives,
All the while bleeding.
None serve him,
For they are all dead.
Rolling in their graves,
From unending agony.
He used to be something,
He used to be alive,
But, his six red eyes are clouded,
Tired of it all.
His kingdom used to be grand,
So vast, so powerful,
Until his heart received,
Some scars never fade,
They sit upon his chest,
Three long and dark,
Scars adorn where his heart should be.

Flexing against the point

I'm not suicidal
I'm not depressed
Because I haven't tried
To kill myself,
That I was busy
Or stuck at a party
Or at work
On the day
I planned to jump
In front of a train.
To tell me
Aren't bad enough.
