Thoughts can be useless.
They don't help in a fight.
In the spur of the moment,
We don't think quite right.
For us it was years though.
With no time to waste
All that we wanted
Was Mom's smiling face...
Instead I lost one.
My brother's sound fate
A soul clad in armor
My horrific mistake.
But now we're relentless.
We search for a way
To correct our mistakes
And go on, come what may.
Now my future is set.
No regrets, can't backpedal.
I'll jump into the fray
With a heart made Fullmetal.

Grim reaper had his way
Tears saturate burial ground
Quiet sobbing, mournful sound.
Departing from nearby gate
Emphatic soul cannot wait
Mortal life has no claim
Taking leave from this domain.

The voices would sail
how easily I could be free
and how easily I could fail
But as pride wounded heart
and sadness wounded mind
Me and my voices, soon grew apart
And as I struggle now, I grow blind
I long for them all
And wait, and wait, wait.
Might I just hear their beckoning calls?
Or will I fall, I fall and fall.
Who Here Has Seen My Love?Who here has seen my Love? You'll know his faceWho Here Has Seen My Love?23 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
By ivory skin, jade eyes, and onyx hair;
These features that the angels set in place
Who are not near as fine, nor half as fair.
Who here has seen my Love? You'll know his form
By silver arms as strong as beams of steel
With skin as smooth as stone, and twice as warm
That makes his close embrace a joy to feel.
Who here has seen my Love? You'll know his voice
By singing he will leave the heart unstrung!
On hearing him, you'll not regret the choice,
Him, who with words can paralyze the tongue.
Both by his eyes and arms my soul was caught,
Though mine are empty still; I know him not.

Goodbye MoonI know you dont miss me....Goodbye Moon22 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
What can I say I tend to fade like the mist in may
I truely did wish you could stay......
Maybe well speak again.....
I'm make sure to call a friend....
Because no matter what you, what you lose, and past the scars your a friend first...
I'm sorry I stopped making sire you wouldn't fall
If I do wrong I can say.....
For sure you made me stronge
Be alone is alot like being loved
you live for others even after being shoved
Standing in a crowd with faces alike.
I dont know if theses phases I'll like
You could always make me smile with a sneeze or a yawn
You were stronger and perfecting compared to all the pawns
I never thought the moon would fade.....
So I always have to hide in the shade
Tho it seems little to worry about...the sun being out
But you'd be surprise what creatures came out
Wolves and rabbits
Bears and monster
just going about
The dark was there home....there moon there beautiful sight
know the hide outside looking for place to lay.
A Impossible Dream?Just Like Poe And OrwellA Impossible Dream?22 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I am sitting
In front of this keyboard
The glow from my phone
Says it is way past 3 a.m.
Yet I haven't written
Down a word
I begin to shake
To the very bone
What if there isn't anymore?
Would you be surprised?
If I told you
I want to be immortal
And I believe
My words on the page
Are the way to go
They come from
The heart and soul
I would hope
They would live on
Long after I am gone
That is why
The rest of the city sleeps
I am here
Before this monitor screen
Until morning's first light
She greets me with her smile
And a coffee
To keep me going
I will become
A master at my craft
And earn my place
A hundred years from now
Part of me will live on
Long after I am gone
Poe and Orwell..
DemonsDemons hide in darknessDemons1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Creeping into dreams
Laughing at the hopeless
Delighting in their screams
Living only to drag down the weak
And make the strong feel small
Keeping the tiny under their thumb
And causing the mighty to fall
Burning cities to the ground
Spreading war and hate
Taking pride in the desolation
And bathing in our pain
Demons get high of human screams
And get drunk off our tears
Our pain is their ecstasy
They find endless joy in our fears

your wings keeping you afloat and at a distant height.
It's so familiar while it resonates within my chest,
but all too suddenly you disappear once the sun begins to crest.
I've come to cherish those moments that I spend awake,
waiting for you to find me a worthy sake.
Maybe if I bothered to call...
Maybe if I aimed my whispers to the sky instead of the wall...
Would you hear me now?
lend me your alabaster wings as a tourniquet for my broken heart.
Allow me to dream any dream that doesn't have anyone else,
none of them.
Not a single one of the blurred out faces,
just let me escape all of these places.
Diamond stained eyes watch me with a million facets,
I know you're judging me right up until I lay within my casket.
And there are a lot of things that I have done wrong,
so much anger that I've held onto for so very long.
But I am telling you that I want so much to let it go...
Erase it completely so that I may never k

You sit on the school bus by yourself.
You get elbowed and tripped in the halls- on purpose.
You are being made fun of.
You are sitting at the lunch table by yourself.
You are standing at recess by yourself.
You are being beaten up and insulted.
You fight back tears.
You are the only one without a partner in class.
You are unpopular.
You are different.
You get back on the bus and sit down by yourself.
You go home.
You go to your room.
You are finally by yourself.
You are not alone.
Never MoreAlways poured my heart out...Never More4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Always, let you know...
Always checking up on you...
Always, when you seemed low...
Never meant much, did it?
Never cared much, that I was born...
Never anything in the grand scheme...
Never more than just a pawn...
Always doing all I can...
Never have I stopped...
Always on your side...
Never thought it tough...
Always 'such a sweet friend'...
Never anything more...
Always 'means a lot'...
Never means enough...
Deny My PlaceI though there was a timeDeny My Place54 minutes ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I was your friend
Is it a crime
To wish for your end
You denied me my place
The one I earned
Forget my face
I think I've learned
I don’t belong
I realize now
I would say so long
But I don’t know how
I cry silentlyI cry silently when I'm aloneI cry silently1 hour ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When the doors are shut and closed
I weep for the lack of friends I have
Why I can't make any nobody knows
I cry silently when I'm discouraged
When I find that I lack talents and skills
Though I tempt to unearth them I have
Found nothing except how bad I feel
I cry silently after a long day
Of being another Anonymous face
In a gigantic crowd where I'm hardly noticed so much that I disappear with out a trace
I cried silently when my beloved
Had left me for another
Because he's better looking then me
I cry because I know I'll find no other
I cry silently nobody hears me
Nobody cares for me I guess
So someone please listen to my plea
And I wouldn't try to lay in enteral rest

Freedom of the SoulShe was tired from almost all of the things that has in her life.Freedom of the Soul3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She was tired from the same old things that life always bring to her.
She was tired from all the weight of the future,and even the present.
She was,indeed,tired from everything and those who expect a lot from her.
What else would everyone expect from her?
Having the life that everyone else wanted for her?
She wants to be free.
She wants to see the world with her own eyes,not by talks,or photos.
She wants that sweet taste of being free from a destined future.
She wants to do a lot of things,since she knows that she will not be eternal.
She wants to scream that she is right there! That she wants to do what she truly wants!
She wants to free herself from that stressful.
She wants to be.. herself.
With no rules to follow.
With no sad or tense moments.
With no thinking about 'what are they going to say?'
With no bad feelings about feeling a bit herself,just because it is wrong.
With no one to tell her what to d
A Lament on Broken Friendshipsthose awful moments that sometimes occurA Lament on Broken Friendships4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
when friends are torn apart, and tempers burn.
it lays in one's skin, like a thorn, a burr,
that is as maddening and paining as making a wrong turn.
a wrong turn in a friendship,
a wrong choice in words.
a wrong joke that one should never have been said.
and the horrible monster of hatred is fed.
one must remember in these times,
that we were once friends, and despite your crimes,
there's still a chance,
we may enter the dance
of friendship once again.
Time For ChangeWe have to blow this all to smithereens,Time For Change7 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And let the pieces fall where they will.
In order to breathe freely once more,
We have to devastate, destroy and kill...
All the outdated, ineffective ways,
We operate in, navigating this world.
We must fling ourselves into the unknown...
Allow our new path to be unfurled.
Blow this up and let it burn sky high.
Don't try to patch repair the damage there.
Start over without fear and do or die.
Stop spinning around, into nowhere...
Always stuck in this hell, for life,
Struggling against unending strife.
Complete change is the best avenue,
When options have run out for you.

Committed PonderingsEmptiness resides in my heart's desire.Committed Ponderings17 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A struggle to want anything at all.
Darkness inside rather than passion's fire.
A wish all I have, though something quite small.
Love to dominate rather than my pain.
Spreading smiles and laughter, live life for joy!
But for now my love falls away like rain,
Leaving me feeling like a broken toy.
I want to hope, but fear stands in my way.
Weighing me down with all of my troubles.
The beast in my heart I wish I could slay.
It slithers and hides in my hearts rubble.
My dearest loves try to protect me so,
For them I try to make my heart's fire grow.
Hiding Under a SmileThe music will not play anymore,Hiding Under a Smile19 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Without music all there is, is doubt.
No way to ignore what's going on,
No way to shut everything out.
On the outside she is happy,
But her smile is not real.
On the inside she is dying,
But she hides the pain she feels.
She forces a smile each day of her life, but still her eyes show her inner sadness.
She puts on a laugh, but still she fades into the blackness.
At night she is not sleeping,
She is unable to close her eyes.
For her eyes are full of salty water,
That waterfalls as she cries.
On the outside she is joyful,
But it is just a mask.
To blend into the growing crowd,
It is not a difficult task.
She forces a smile each day of her life, just to get around.
She sees the sky, but still she's getting pulled underground.
It's not easy being different,
It's hard to get around.
She's always teased and tormented,
Bullied and put down.
She's too scared to tell her parents,
For she knows they will not care.
She hides under her hidden mask,
The smile she w

And I am blinded by the gaze of both.
A chance to have and make your heart as whole
is what I long for. To protect, my oath.
As your heart reveals my affections grow.
I lose my senses to thoughts about you.
You're everything and more I wish to know,
As your smile brightens my heart through and through.
The ills of your heart I wish I could mend
With soft kisses and love like none can show.
To give my all and be more than a friend
And with my love the break in your heart sew.
Your beauty of heart and mind is too great
For those of small souls to take as their fate.
Disabled'You can do it' echoes inside my brain.Disabled17 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The words they say to make me feel better,
The words they say that do drive me insane.
'You can do it,' does make my eyes wetter
The truth is the storm inside stops me cold,
Keeps me from doing the easiest things.
Takes the ability to act as bold
As I would like, with a heart that can sing.
My only truth is sometimes I cannot.
To calm my storms of fear and doubt and rage-
I must learn to confine my inner rot,
And confine the beast in my mental cage.
Reflections and rest are what I must use
To stay sane and my body not abuse.
