Grand Pa bounced me on his knee,
his big moustache would tickle me.
He´d want a kiss, give me a peck
and blow a raspberry on my neck.
I´d squeal so loud, laugh with delight,
my arms around him, hug him tight.
While playing games of hide and seek,
he´d start to count but would always peek
and then pretend he couldn´t see,
where I had hid. Where could I be?
My Grand pa could do magic,
he could make a penny disappear,
until he uttered "Sim-sala-bim!"
and there it was behind my ear.
Sometimes he´d take me to the zoo
and we´d have fun the whole day through,
we´d walk around for miles and miles
and he´d buy me little snacks.
Later when I could walk no more,
I´d be carried piggy-back.
Then came a time he had to leave,
it left my Mommy full of grief.
But "Gramps" I just wanted you to know,
you were definitely my hero.
My best friend,I miss you every day,
so good night, God bless
and as you would say,
friends it´s t

Tells you to fight to kill all in sight
And tells you it's right
That we can not achieve peace
Without these dirty deeds
But you know thats not true there are other ways to
If you put down your guns and talk things through
It will be clear to you
That we don't need to bleed
we can set ourselves free
If all we see is nothing but family

As the title says I am here to speak
Her identity shall not be spoken
Arrogant, I am, I want it hidden
For now, your attention is all I seek
By means of how I write I will express
The joy I feel knowing that you exist
Emotions, I can no longer resist
Your eyes and hair so fitting for your dress
That snorky laughter that you always hide
Is all that I need to keep living life
I don't want to sound weird or some brave knight
But I felt bliss when you were by my side
If this will fail, stab me now with a knife
But forevermore, You shall be my light.
Roses Were Your Favorite LiesRoses Were Your Favorite Lies18 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Roses were your favorite lies,
You led me deep within,
The winding labrynth in your eyes,
I pursued you further in,
I fell in love with your disguise,
A fallen, outcast angel,
You played and shied and blushed and cried,
And to you I was faithful,
You pulled me near and in my ear,
You breathed of love and rapture,
I was yours, yet you, not mine,
Affection used to capture,
A wolf within sheeps clothing,
And a demon clothed in light,
You sank your knife into my back,
Leaned in and took the bite,
Roses were your favorite lies,
Of soft and striking splendor,
Full of thorns and deep as blood,
The touch was sharp not tender,
And I beheld once and for all,
The darkness of your shadows,
And peering deeply through the dark,
I saw your heart was hollow,
I wept for love and all allure,
The lie I had possessed,
Was lost within your empty eyes,
And the chasm in your chest,
I let you lead me to my death,
And my soul has paid the cost,
As I lay dying in your arms,
I know eternity is lost,
You killed m

Oly hideg van odakint, zápor zajlik épp,
Bentről még a kandalló ontja melegét.
Indulnom kéne már, az ajtóhoz lépek,
Anyám zengő hangjával szólt hozzám szépen.
Vigyázz magadra! Csak ennyi, mit mondott ő,
Kint hideg szél süvített, esett az eső.
Kopogott az ajtón a cseppek serege.
Vigyázz magadra kicsim, édes gyermekem!
Nem szóltam semmit, csak egy viszlátot mondtam,
Az ajtón kiléptem, végre elindultam.
Szeretlek anyám, de nem ígérek semmit,
Nem mondhatom néked, hogy bajom nem esik.
Nem ígérem, hogy egy autó nem üt el,
Hogy az utamon járva nem tévedek el,
Hogy az étel, amit eszek, nem lesz selejtes,
Hogy nem leszek rossz, vagy nem leszek szerelmes.
Nem ígérem neked, hogy össze nem török,
Hogy nem gyűlnek majd felhők a fej
Without YouIf I'm a fool to love you...Without You1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Then I'll gladly be your fool.
Because a life without you...
Would be unbearably cruel.
I need you to sustain me...
Or else I'll meet my demise.
I can't exist without you...
For the life within me dies.

Two Souls, One HeartTwo sides of a coinTwo Souls, One Heart1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Not one and another
When one's treated fine
Like trash is the other
Connected as one
Both care, have hearts
They don't like it much
When one's torn apart
So rare is it for them
Finding one who treats both right
Both really hate
To get into a fight
So strange to see
One by themself
Hard for them to
Keep their heart on a shelf
So treat the two kind
No pain, if you please
And smiles will go around
With laughter in the trees

her tears blending with the rain
it was the one thing that masked the pain.
she screamed into the night
she screamed with all her might
but nothing could cure that ache
that burning desire
it was just a feeling she couldn't shake.
all she wanted was the warmth
of that embrace
another chance to see that sweet smile
on his face.
that love was a drug
and she was addicted.
even though it hurt
it made her so happy
she had always feared coming down from the high
she knew she would feel crappy.
she didnt know it would feel like this.
her hands balled up into fists
and she pounded at the ground
but no one saw, or was listening to her cries.
no one heard a sound.
as the night drug on
she felt so empty
so messed up and fucked up
and nothing was

Sneak through tears in cries of blinds;
To bloom as weepers in nights of purple time.
Linger in rind, to pick meat like twine—
Clouds thou head, a sign of rose-stones
To splay down the soft bones of mine.

The sky, so cool, so black
for certain reasoning, my heart skips a beat tonight
The lights combating the dark is well enough
for I never tasted air so sweet
Neither was my mind free from that girl
Oh, her eyes brought me peace, serenity
Odd thing it is, to feel serenity
Even if my life reflected the worst black
The touch of her hand, of my girl
saved me, and onward I am to meet her tonight
In her memory I think of a scent ever sweet
Never, can I ever have enough
Those three words unspoken, not enough.
Her voice, her soul, pure serenity
I see her through the cafe window, mind brings sweet
In her dress of blue and black
Oh what a night is tonight
With this perfect girl
This wonderful, inconceivable girl
stole my heart, therefore it is enough
to just see her smile tonight
because that is all I need, it brings serenity
Her hair falls in a river of black
Lips, I dream of their touch of sweet
I enter, she smiles so sweet
I sit by this girl
with my repaired heart

I don't know
Bury me so
Stranded in the cemetery
What am I doing?
Lying is better
Who we are?
Who I am?
A person buried under the sand
Lost so far,
Laugh it off, laugh it off
Scare me out of my socks
Don't deny, please comply
Still I sit here
Won't someone come and wake me?
Sit by me,
have some tea
Let passerby's be passerby's
Hurt and frightened
Days go by,by, and by
Eyes that have seen too much
Brain that knows as such
Still I sit, amused
Maybe I think too much

Crawled into bed and turned my back probably a familiar sight
I'm sure you're offended but having you like this is less of a fright
When I can just feign sleep and you leave, I avoid your venomous bite.
I know you're hurt and maybe that's better, maybe I'm right
I don't like to cry, I don't like this pain, I'm running from the fight
Because you know we're volatile now, and no amount of strength or might
Will possibly heal this rift where the moment I see you, my throat gets tight
Our easy love was torn away like a hurricane snatches a kite
And perhaps only I see the hopelessness of this futile plight,
But good night, Mommy, good night.

It swells and suffocates your lungs.
You stay cold, unwilling,
That stupid old lore
There is no point in trying anymore.
Tears well behind your eyes
No one can see behind your lies
A crooked smile, a twisted grin
A forced laugh, and you're torn within
You're left alone to sin.
All because you let it win.
UntitledMoments come and then they go.Untitled12 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
We sometimes wish that life could take it slow.
Is it just a cliché to think that the ones you’ve met along the way will no longer be there one day?
We want it to last, we want to enjoy the fleeting moments of life’s occasional joy.
Is it sad to think, to keep in mind that someday all of this will get left behind?
Nothing lasts forever, though at times you wish it could.
So enjoy the little moments just like you should.
Push the future from you mind and let the sorrows of your past get left behind.
Find the laughter that’s in the now and you’ll find you’ll make it through somehow.
Because nothing lasts forever, that much is true, so always treasure what is dearest to you.

A ticking bomb waits
Frustrated, unable to disarm
I'm nervously expecting it to detonate
Blinded, I did not see the harm
That kept building right to this state
How should I appease my qualms?
Go back in time and start a clean slate?
Only recourse left is to pray
And wait for the inevitable day.

Nothing is really there, not even within
It's as blank as paper, as blank as the night
not one pure of heart has seen it in plain sight
I have been made not to feel, not to reveal
Lost humanity spinning along the wheel
I exist just to get them by, to obey
because big dreams are merely for fools they say
Polished smiles and dead eyes, that is who I am
Now do I get to pass this pointless exam?

I feel the sky begin to fall
This painful love, must be a sin
Broken threshold upon this wall
I fear the day of broken hearts
The day of sorrow drifting near
Hurtful words and liquids far
All there is, is senseless fear
Heed my warnings, past to future
Liquid courage cannot dull
Drink the whiskey, mend the suture
Alcohol can't numb the fall

Your lips were soft

Erase the harm

I know your touch
When I hear you

Don't break now
I don't see how
Any of this is okay
It shouldn't occur
It shouldn't be this way
All because of her
As it happens
I'm falling too
My face saddens
Along with you
Please be okay
Please believe me
What happened that day
isn't how it should be
You're so much more
Close that door
Are you listening?
I'm so sorry...
I hate to see you like this...
All this worry...
Instead of happiness...
I love you
It's all true
I'm watching now
As you fall apart
I don't know how
to mend your broken heart

I'm sorry I can't do more
I can't stop this worry
As I watch, my own heart is so very sore...

Then, you ask me to stay.
Does your heart truly know,
What it wants, anyway?
Your moods swing back and forth...
My head begins to spin.
Can this really be worth...
All the turmoil I'm in?
You lift me up, so high...
Then you drop me back down.
It's the main reason why...
My smile becomes a frown.
I don't think there's much more...
Confusion I can take.
My heart's already sore...
Soon it will crack and break.

What I can never do
Is to be happy, like you
No matter how hard I try
In the end I do nothing but cry
I live in solitude surrounded by wandering husks
I endure alone from dawn till dusk
Earlier in my life
I was not burdened by continuance’s knife
My wounds run so deep
They are what I must keep
Love? Yes I felt it
But I do not deserve it
What I do feel is so petty
So little I feel, it is a pity
Anger? I am its thrall
But it is better to feel it, then nothing at all
I force a smile when I can
Yet I feel so empty, I am no man
I strive for little
I have no fire left to kindle
Yes, I am depressed
And there is no room to be impressed
Hope? It is why I am still here
But I am giving in to my fear
A fear of losing myself
Slowly I slip, deteriorating at my health
Can I survive? Yes
Will I survive? Only if I dig out of this mess
