you look so thin
feed you my heart
if you’d let me

you’ve already taken
so very much from me
i am willing to throw

i’d hand you the knife
and let you carve

Poetry Is The VoicePoetry is the voicePoetry Is The Voice5 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
In which a crippled psyche cries
And imprecates the world
Before it miserably expires
And in this very voice I beg
This morbid voice of mine
For any soul be crazed or sane
To read between the lines
And as I’m standing on the edge
With open arms and hazy head
It all comes to an abrupt halt
My heart is making a somersault
Because I feel heavy no more
Wings on my back, and hope and all
The things I hadn’t felt before
Where had you been? Where had you gone?
And did you see? And do you know?
My lethal mind
My concrete heart
My flawless face
My treacherous scars
And can you, angel, love a tart
Who wanders a haunted boulevard?
Poetry is the voice
In which a soul confesses sins
And the interpreter is the one
Who said soul can redeem
Worth Something SomedayI still wonder and sometimes even dare to dream.Worth Something Someday1 week ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's gotten me this far but it's still the same scene.
Say the line, laugh, and smile everyone seems pleased.
Is it fake and does it matter, and oh, when will this be released?
I feel like my life is a rerun and the series is already done.
So living through this episode is my only chance at love.
It's like playing a song in which every note is the same.
When is there a melody, and does the rhythm change?
I still hope and sometimes even dare to believe.
It's gotten me here so I can at least plant the seed.
Cover with dirt, water, and leave what is buried is freed.
Will it grow, and does it matter, just give us progress to see.
I feel like a collectable to be put in a closet and never used.
And being worth something someday is what will set me loose.
It's like building sand castles where the tide will never reach.
They stay there until you destroy them or until you leave.
I still remember and sometimes even dare to forgive.
It's gotten me

Instead of asking him how it feels to die, you ask him how it feels to be alive. You're not a common person.
You [warily] : What does it feel like ?
Him: what do you mean ?
You : What does it...you know, dying, feel like ?
Him [sweetly and most loathsomely so] : Oh, do you wish to find out ?
You : No, but sometimes, sometimes it's living that feels like falling asleep and dying that's like coming awake.
Him [kisses your forehead] : Hush now, close your eyes.
You : Please, answer my question.
Him [frowning] : I'm afraid I cannot do that.
You : And why is that ?
Him : You cannot slumber forever except...except-
You : Yes ?
Him : Except maybe in death.

When black and grey
Are my favorite colours
Gentle rain will cleanse away
Any lingering dolours
When I let all droplets
Break sharply over my lips
Into my eyelids
Setting into undulatory motions
The pieces of my soul
Igniting like a whisper, a hot breath
My body, from inside out
I become a flame that dances
In the embrace of rain
Earth Born, World Desolator.I was born from the earth,Earth Born, World Desolator.1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
constructed through crystalline blueprint
unto this world to ravage,
the very making of me,
made the world crumble
look into the desolation and see
what my birth has wrought
for I didn't ask to be brought
here onto this existence.
I was made for war,
but I didn't choose it,
I weren't made by love,
but I was found by someone
who taught me to love life
someone who rose above the strife.
You would think by my demeanor,
I'm a savage creature by design,
but neither are true and doesn't reign supreme within me
nor does it make me what I am
I got hidden depths that you just can't see
and believe that I got all the reason
to fight against my manufactured instincts for if I don't,
those I love will feel my unwilling treason.

The compliments and breakdowns you tell yourself are stereo-pulsing.
It's no wonder you can't sleep at night.
Go ahead! Straighten your hair and paint your lips red;
Smile into the mirror and say 'I'm accentuating my beauty, not being fake!'
You've got fantastic excuses for everything
- It's no wonder your daddy says you're to be a lawyer -
I hope you know when you sing in the shower the demons cover their ears - take that as you will
Spinning circles on the popped up toes of lucky ballet flats from when they were still in fashion
Skirt fanning out like a seven year old girl, only problem is it's not pink
There's a reason you wake up at midnight
Sleeping through life so you can forget you exist in harmony with other people
"I'm nocturnal" is 'I'm disillusioned' into thinking that I'm not just an insomniac
Who refuses to take melatonin because
You're perfect, honey! -like no one ever said

your leering gaze
and empty stare,
Dare us with
the claws in fleshy wrists
and fingers 'round fragile bones,
Torment us with
flashbacks shockingly vivid
and nightmares a-plenty,
Exhaust us with
memories and ghosts and
what ifs and what could bes,
Haunt us with
attacks of panic and
reactions of the body...
Let not us rest,
Never heal from the wounds...
And another night is over.

All true threats have faded,
and if they return,
I know I can fight my way through,
Yet I fear anyways,
and I don’t know what of.
I keep looking over my shoulder,
only to find nothing there.
There’s an unease,
a need to keep my back against my chair,
at any moment,
a knife will run through it.
A chill goes up my spine,
Forcing me to stand tall,
to show that I can carry my own burdens,
Yet the ones I no longer need to carry,
refuse to let my shoulders rest.
I reach for it,
that soft, squishy purple ball,
that is supposed to make the fear go away,
I squeeze it tightly,
thinking it may burst,
and even so,
the fear lingers,
like a drop of water down your spine.
I have no reason to fear,
All true threats have faded,
and if they return,
I know I can fight my way through,
Yet My Fear Still Stays.

It came as a fright
When he was hit by car on the road.
As you would expect,
We were feeling all rekt
So I made this wonderful ode!

We need not meet an early end.
I know that some are broken
For too far were they forced to bend.
But even those who are broken
Can be pieced back together.
I promise that the troubles
In your life won't last forever.
These these days seem dark
And you feel quite close to death
And all the pain you feel inside
Makes you seek your final breath,
The night will not last.
In each hardship there is some light.
Fight a little longer
And you'll see you won't be trapped in strife.

Hope slowly dies.
My heart is broken,
by the words not spoken
Life at bay,
Fire fades to grey.
The light goes out,
Returning is of doubt.
I cry and cry
Because I lied.
I could never stop loving you,
I just could not stand to ever make you blue.
You couldn't be there when the disease ripped me apart,
It would break your beautiful heart.
You would have never been happy with me,
So I set you free.
You moved on,
Long before I was gone.
I am still here.
The end draws near.
Fighting day after day,
As life fades away.
Always holding one thing to be true,
My heart will always be with you.

Day after day
The silence seals me away.
Let it break.. Let me break..
With the dawn
With my sanity
I cry out
With the tears that don't come
But won't go away.
Flailing for warmth
Reaching out through the darkness
For a hand that's not there
With the soul crushing thought
Did anyone care
Soft whispers in the night
All in my head
The friendliest voices
All want me dead

Indeed you managed to sprout from concrete,
But at your own cost.
Each joyous day success is gained
In spite of all that you've lost.
As you gradually continue to grow
Minus all the shiny medals
Please find it in your heart
To embrace your damaged petals.
As society tries to detach your stems
Don't ever let them break you.
Through good and bad the haters hate
But they played no role to make you.
Remember no matter what they claim
If you can dream you can fly.
So raise your petals; spread your wings.
Fly beyond the stars, deep into the sky.

Just about how her gaze still leaves me hanging by a thread with that forever falling feeling
And how I get so lost in her "back away" glare-
I've done something wrong, haven't I?
I just never seem to learn that friends are only forever until you cross the line,
But the line is so thin and I'm wandering down the middle like the legally blind
Drunk off of confusion and trying to walk straight.
She's ticketed my heart, as cheesy and cliche as that sounds,
And I'm refusing to pay the fines.
Falling in love should be a beautiful thing,
But why does it feel so ugly?

A shred of self control.
But I didn't know when we were together
That'd I'd agreed to sale my soul.
You know that I love you.
To me, you mean everything.
Whenever you and I are together
You make me want to laugh and sing.
But when you want to do more,
A touch more than a kiss,
I didn't know I'd be so willing
To break and do all of this.
Now I'm disappointed and confused.
My morals are left up for scrutiny.
But though I'm tangled in your luscious web,
I don't think I really want to be free.
