"Be more like us!"
They should stop telling me
to change who I am.
"What are you wearing?"
"You look like a boy!"
I want them to stop telling me
to change who I am!
"What is wrong with you?"
"You're so stupid!"
PLEASE STOP TELLING ME
TO CHANGE WHO I AM!!!
"You're so ugly!"
"You piece of trash!"
... stop telling me...
to change... who I am...

Euology for No OneDroplets of rain form artificial streams,Euology for No One1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
the nostalgic mist which they form is quite
a fitting setting for a lonesome fugue.
A storm is no place for idle daydreams,
such a melancholy downpour of rain
has the tendency to leave one subdued.
I regained a heart in that dreary squall,
my modest empathy returned to me
in a silence through which few could intrude.
Then there came one so gentle and so small,
a creature of such insignificance
yet one which I simply could not exclude.
Quietly it sprang
into view of my
rain splattered eye lids.
A thought came to me
which jangled my nerves:
How far had you flown?
I brushed it aside with little concern,
I knew that there was no place for it here
and hoped that it might find its way back home.
As far as my humble eyes could discern,
the creature had subtly flittered away
to those winds on which its brothers had flown.
I never expected it to return,
crashing into the cold and hateful flood
and falling down to a watery grave.
Suddenly a fire began to

He is carcass.
A broken mirror.
A few empty beer bottles.
Tobacco breath. .
There is no light in my eyes.
Where did it go?
Who is to know..
Why did it leave?
Because no one wanted to know. .
There is a hollow rock instead of his heart.
Salt crystals jaggedly poked from it, and burned the seared flesh of his soul.
He didn't cry out.
He didn't mention it.
He just closed his eyes, and let the sea of tears rock him to sleep.
No pain to the outside.
No happiness on the inside.
Let it go..
Just let me go.
"Who are you talking to?"

I scream through it;
making vodka in my mind the moon shine when I brew it.
It's got a firm grip to it,
I kick through it;
my body is a pistol getting ripped through it.
My walls falling hard, all caved in.
Tryna catch my six but I slipped into sin.
There ain't no other words I could seem to describe;
the walls I built were truth
and the rocks that toppled them were lies.
Cuz I'm an addict, addict alcoholic.
I burned all my bridges and I sunk like a brick.
My damn human nature skull is thick;
and it talks like a ninja super quick.
The language cathartic backfired;
my soul is old God let me retire.
Let me soar up to heaven; join your heavenly choir.
I'm a liar and I'm spiraling to Hell;
either pick me up or leave me, say farewell.

Ghosts in SoccerPeople who aren't me versus the real you.Ghosts in Soccer9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
At least they aren't fighting ghosts.
Someone got distorted getting passed through
And just disappeared at the goalpost.
Sometimes soccer lets me win during the challenge.
No matter how much this kicked around I can restart
And enjoy the advantage.
But I wonder if you're playing with heart.
HeadfirstHard to say what made it happen.Headfirst1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Or even when it happened.
Feels like all it took was a smile,
And then I was falling, headfirst.
For neither of us was it intended.
Nor even was it expected.
But you went and you smiled.
And now I'm swiftly falling, headfirst.
And I often wonder if you know,
Or maybe not, y'know?
That ever since that smile,
I've been cascading, falling, headfirst.
And I often wonder where I'll land.
In your arms or on the ground?
And then I think of the smile,
And I'm carelessly falling, headfirst.
Or to ruin,
I have cast myself, headfirst.
Sbame on Me, Shame on YouShame on me for playing with your heart.Sbame on Me, Shame on You1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
For twisting your idea of love and never being apart,
For changing and becoming a stranger,
Shame on me for being a bitch, for being a jaded player.
Shame on me for not regretting it in the least.
For treating your hurt like it was a feast.
Shame on me for using all my past scars against you.
Shame on me for bringing what we had to an end, too.
For not even attempting to be a better partner, packaging your pain in a little bow,
For laughing when you asked me if it was even worth it, though.
Shame on you for hanging around, for hoping it was a phase,
For beating yourself up over me, when you should just not have stayed.
Shame on you for ignoring the right girl who was beside you all along,
For toying with her feelings too, even though you knew that about me you were wrong.
Shame on you for not listening to your friends,
For ignoring their repeated warnings that I was just another bitch in the end.
Shame on you for not being strong enough to leave

The dream of many woman
and for many it is so
but along with it comes heartbreak
when time arrives to let go.
When you were young I knew my place
but now I'm not so sure
Your life evolves the way it should
not as it was before.
When I could watch you play and grow
my word you listened to
but now I rarely see your face
and there's nothing I can do
but wish that time could stand still
like the statue in the park
and life was full of laughter
where now it's cold and stark.
But you remain inside my heart
no matter where you rome
my love will always stay the same
right here with me at home.
With Eyes That Breath DarknessI've seen fire in the eyes of the heart that bleedsWith Eyes That Breath Darkness1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Watched it swallow him whole, heard the silence he screamed
I've seen pain in the lines of a face carved in stone
Watched it crumble within, but no damage was shown
I've seen hearts torn asunder through a glittering smile
Festering wounds of war, vicious and vile
I've seen gazes so black they could darken the sun
Heard whispers as sharp as the crack of a gun
I've felt venomous stares that can poison the mind
Known the deepest of rages that butcher and blind
I've witnessed the wretched, cruel, cursed, and obscene
If Mercy rules here, swift Death is his queen.

You look into the future
The time is moving fast...
When meeting in the street
You call my dreams the litter
It used to be so sweet
But it is getting bitter
I feel the bitter taste
Inside my mouth closed
And no time to waste
Much less than I supposed
I'm to become a ghost
Without sight and sound
It seems that I am lost
In happy days I count
They are extremely few
The time is moving faster
And then I always knew
That it was a disaster

keep me awake at night.
The storm winds cry out
and my soul wails in response.
It has been so long
since I last saw the salty water.
So locked up in this tall tower
I drown myself in tears
just to remember what it tastes like.
The moon still pulls me to the window
just as she pulls the tides.
Oh, I would give up this love, this life,
just to be free.
The music of the sea
calls my name with caressing whispers.
So I watch the stars fall to the waters
and wish I were them
Oh if only I were home.
There, with my powers
I would call up a storm
and destroy this prison in the sky
so it could never steal the oceans treasure again.

If you're not for it we're against you.
We're a mess of negative critics.
Who do not care about you.
We all used to be friends once.
Loyal as we seemed.
But then you disagreed us.
Now it's out of the circle with thee.
You can sit and rot in pain, not knowing what you've done.
Don't worry we're just sinners, you innocent little one.

Mirrors of myself spin within my head
Sweating through my sheets and clothes
Over and over, I hear her voice
Repeat, repeat, repeat
Run down my soul, until I'm weak
You can help me
Happiness is subjective
Even if I'm losing it
Please bear with me
Most don't seem to understand... I'm simply
Elated to be me

Pretending to be kind while you're speaking your lies.
You put on a charming smile and sweet talk your way into hearts.
But the truth is, you're cold and callous, you've got it down to an art.
You should be ashamed of your treacherous ways, your venomous tongue.
But you think yourself slick and sly, not caring what you've done.
One day, perhaps soon, it will all come crashing down.
Your lethal behavior will bring your soul crashing to the ground.
And all that you've done, and all the hearts that you broke...
Will all be for naught, and your reign will end on the most sour of notes.

tazer to the throat like a prejudice cop.
Gut wrench, no tears;
mind blank, wasted years.
Heavy feet, heavy lids;
hammer, tipped, back, tires, skid.
Phantom soul, buried deep;
wandering inside the keep.
Shoot me in the brain;
numb the pain;
fill my veins.
Crystallize with meth
they're the same.

I go to the school of life cuz I flunked out of class.
Now no one here wants to take me back.
My heart's on fire and my future's black.
The darkness has surrounded me.
Please God make the demons flee.
Their talons cut and scar my face.
Don't let me ever doubt your grace.
I know you've rescued me from Hell,
but this life may be just as well.
All the gifts when I was born,
I've squandered, spit on, ripped, and torn.
I've used the world to cover my eyes,
but nothing mutes my spirit's cry.
I'm sorry for the things I've done,
I'm unworthy to be called your son.
Forgive me Father; today my body was won.
