Whistle BlowerDive into the void of endless spaceWhistle Blower14 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I leave no path for you to trace
It’s not because I don’t want you here
I just don’t need something else to fear
I’m not afraid that you’ll sell my soul
Or attempt to reach some other goal
This is burning a hole through my heart
Should I say what’s tearing me apart?
I’ve made my choice, but I won’t tell you
For fear of what you can do
A whistle blower would mean my end
For I would have no way to defend

I thought you a doe, but your looks did deceive
Little did you know I had tricks up my sleeve
A rabbit and a doe, we were far from that
A despicable couple,

Still can't see the top.
What point is there in trying?
But something keeps me hoping.
To fall down
So there's no need to frown.
Made it farther
Than I thought
Can't just let my spirit rot.
Too much hope
Too much at stake
Only one real choice to make.
And someday I'll see the top.

Another step back
Timid and shadowed
You hide in the cracks
The ugly world bites you
It hurts you, it lies
Pouring vitriol in
Through your innocent eyes
I won't try to "mend" you
You don't have to change
You don't have to hurry
Or prove you're okay
A baby-step forwards
And into the light
I'm waiting, I'm here
I can wait all my life
My love, my endMy love, my dearMy love, my end20 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The day that I fear
Is whitin our reach
for you sweet as a peach
But a sour bite of reality for me
I have admired you from far
Like the nights brightest star
I always thought you were near
But now to me it's clear
You aren't as close as I see
Your shine fooled me over time
Made me think that you're mine
But my love, my friend
I don't want it to end
I always want to be near you
We were together at any cost
But now, your love for me is lost
Behind his smile
Gone for a long mile
Your new love has left me blue
ForgetForget the tearsForget1 hour ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Forget the pain
Forget the fears
There's nothing to gain
Forget the one's that you thought you knew
Forget the memories that you believe to be true.
Forget the mistakes of your horrible past
Because there's nothing more wrongfully vast.
I want to forget all the tears I've cried
All the reasons to live have gone and died.
This feeling won't last forever, I know
But for now I'll let my weakness show.
Remember the good times you had
Remember how they made you glad.
I'll never forget how they made me feel
But I won't let them see my heart to steal.
Tonight I'll sing myself to sleep
Tomorrow look in the mirror and weep.
But it will be okay
Not everything stays grey.
Happy Birthday, baby.Happy Happy Birthday baby,Happy Birthday, baby.8 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Know I love you so.
Though the miles lay between us
I would drop it all and go,
to stand beside you and to hold you
to tell you how I care
to see the joy upon your face
but alas I can't be there.
So Happy Birthday darling
I will send this letter now
and hope that it will reach you
and you'll understand, somehow,
Just how much I miss you,
how the hours feel like years
and that I think of you every single day
and often must hide tears.
Have a happy birthday baby
I'm sure it won't be long
until we are together,
so for now let's stay strong.
And smile through the distance
keep our hearts filled with light.
But for now please don't think of me,
and have fun on your special night.
Lost at SeaHow can so many mean so much to meLost at Sea18 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And still mean so little to most
I'm drowning, I'm drowning my tears form a sea
Please help as I search for the coast
The words they are saying are cutting in deep
My cards only showing dark fate
Those closest to me, they forced me to leap
My love was returned with strong hate
I'm yearning for someone to show me the way
Will no one reach out their hand?
I'm drifting, I'm drifting further away
Never again to see land

The Rulers of NowhereWe marched through civilizationThe Rulers of Nowhere4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
We were lost girls and boys but we held our heads high,
So they cast us onto the dusty plains of Nowhere
Only to mock us of our pride;
“Behold the nobles of Nowhere,
Their kingdom is none of my own.
They breathe the filth of their meaningless words
And through their future-less lands they roam.”
They filled the wild winds with their laughter
As we sat on the thrones of their truths and lies
They are so consumed in their opinions,
They ignored our mighty voices rise.
“All hail and behold!
We are the Kings and Queens of Nowhere,
We are honoured where we stand.
We wear crowns of the sticks and stones thrown by those who could never understand.
We wield swords of fiery might and soul.
forged by our immortal courage and golden lion hearts.
For we are now and always Kings and Queens of Nowhere,
And our mighty kingdoms will now and forever last!”
Dark CloudsIf it weren’t for the thick black smokeDark Clouds15 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
We would have seen what lit the flame
Behind clouds you slit your own throat
The poison in your vanes’ to blame.
Darkness slipping through the cracks,
Flaws of what was once perfect.
Illness in shadow, led the attacks
Making sure the blade fit…
Softly in the hands I held…
Imagined ‘til the end of days.
Could it be a dream from hell?
Still wishing I would wake.
To Fight for FreedomSociety can no longer oppress meTo Fight for Freedom18 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
For it is my will and right
To become boundless and free
An anomaly within their judgmental eyes
Alienated from the rest of the race
But only I can see through Society's lies
This freedom they promise to give
But They use this to chain and bind us
Living under them, do we truly ever live?
Stereotyped into what we become known as
Not wanting to see what is really inside
And revealing the treasure that each of us has
Hurting us, and making us turn to despair
Falling into what they consider depravity
But we will fight back, to our true freedoms we swear
Because through these awry perceptions
We have found the solution to these wrongdoings
We shall fight back, even if the strings of our freedom
Are to wind back around our necks

None left to shed
We are done
Broken head to toe
We no longer stand
Please let go
Take my hand
Cut our ties
So we may soar
Forget all worries
Forget all cares
End the pain
A leap of faith
The skies or the abyss
Where shall we sail
We'll never know
There are no tales
Your wounds open
Slashed with steel
I know you're hurt
But they will heal
Don't end it now
A few years down
You'll look back and say
I'm glad I stayed
Even for her
For you will be happy one day
