Boats of dreamsDazed and amazed, in the mist I standBoats of dreams11 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
People like ghosts, float above the earth
Lips denied a kiss, eyes denied a rest
I'm falling asleep in the spider's web
Bring me the salvation that I long for daily
Hope you'll find somebody you can call your baby
We've travelled this far in our boats of dreams
Seeing all the things no one's ever seen
Wish for happy ending, for the inner light
So you have some guidance when there is too dark
Look, the wounds get healed, tears are getting dry
Dreams getting fullfilled, no reasons to cry
In our boats of dreams - not a single hole
Where the waves will lead us? No one really knows
Let's not think about it, let's travel beyond
To the place where his smile will become your home

pulling my hair,
blood pounding in my ears,
gasping, can't seem to get air
The longer I wait,
the worse it gets,
it's at my fingertips
It's breaking my heart,
I don't understand,
I'm falling apart,
because of a man.
I swore to myself,
I lied to myself,
'cause I'm here again.

it's all for naught,
I'm nobody's queen.
I don't get it,
why do I try?
I always regret it,
how long did I cry?
Hearing one's voice,
brings me to tears,
my first life choice,
killing my fears.
He did all it would take,
helped build me up,
then watched me break,
let me self-destruct.
Listening to another's heart,
warmed my own,
sitting in park,
I've known him an instant,
maybe a moment,
but I've ignore it.
I don't know what to do,
the cycle is ceaseless,
lose both, love two,
little helps less.
I won't lie if one asks,
I speak only truth,
in my own pain I bask,
hope begs they'll not be uncouth.
To both I beg,

Too ample to ask of nonentity?
Was the request extensively in vain,
Or too much to ask of equality?
For fairness of justice rather than naught,
To be considered someone, anyone,
Than the exception which the law hath fought;
Darkness for my own heart hath you chosen.
When my imploration was for upright,
Spit on my brow and bedevil my head
Forth derived the entirety of my might,
until hope, spirit, and promises’ dead.
My stranger hath given me wrongs by law,
My dearest hath gave my heart wrong by awe.

No matter what you say, Or what you do,
I shall always, always be there for you.
No matter who you are, or how you could possibly look,
I'll always try to help stabilize you when your shook.
I know you've messed up, your not perfect, as is no one.
I know what you did, I know it wasn't right.
Wrong isn't okay, but you can fix it, and I won't shun.
I'll try to help you fix it, and heal the blight.
Sometimes I may get frustrated with you,
But only because I want to help you too.
I won't ever abandon you, no matter how you've failed.
I won't ever leave, even after all the others have bailed.
Even if you did try to intentionally bother me,
I'll stick around and see if you truly mean't it.
Even if you did, I'd still try to help you be,
A better person, and to pull you out of the pit.
And the one and only way,
You can make me go away,
Is if you ask me too.
This I hope you knew.
It seems that I am only sad,
When you are not currently here.
For I miss you more than tad,
Rough daysRough DaysRough days10 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
What have I done to deserve,
Such thoughts that curse,
And contamine my sence,
I´ll never be cleansed,
I have tried to get real,
To be the one everyone expects me to be,
But I slowly loose track,
And it destroyes and wrecks,
Me so I cover my face,
But maybe I´m just havin rough days
I disappointed all the people,
That believe in me and keep me,
Living and breathing,
My heart beating,
I´ve let them down,
Once they come,
To terms with that,
They leave like everyone else,
I feel so lost without a trace,
Or maybe I´m just havin rough days
I´ve lost hope,
For myself to show,
Everybody what they what they want to see,
To play the person that I´m supposed to be,
Maybe one day people will understand,
What it ment,
To only have rough days
FeelingsTell me, how does it feelFeelings1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To watch from the outside
To sense that there is no seal
Of friendship, or love, or even pride
Or any emotion beyond apathy.
How does it feel to see friends
talk about you with no sympathy,
with no regards to make ammends.
Now tell me, how does it feel
To be left out of a group
Of friends that were once real,
But you're no longer in the loop,
The only one that knows nothing,
The one that is never asked to hang,
That shouldn't be invited to certain things,
Because you're no longer a part of the gang.
How terrible would it be?
Would you want to be set free?
Would you want to join back in?
Would you want to feel good again?
Would you understand the isolation,
Pain and sometimes aggression,
That comes with being so alone,
So alone that it is easy to condone
The thoughts that coincide
With being left out to die,
Thoughts of cutting and suicide,
Thoughts that would make a mom cry?
Don't Save MeShe's lost her wings,Don't Save Me5 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She's lost her way,
But still she lives another day.
Although it seems eternal night,
She knows that she is forced to fight.
She looks around
And all she sees
Is what they wanted her to be.
But when their wants did not set sail,
They made her feel like she had failed.
Her every day is filled with fear,
With but an hour between the tears.
She tries, she fights, she takes a stand,
But no one seems to understand.
The emptiness is much to bear
And even when her friends are there,
She feels that she will fall apart,
With nothing but her broken heart.
And now she knows she has a home,
Her burdened heart is free to roam.
But though she's home, And though she's free,
She feels her heart is incomplete.
Her eyes are frozen, cold and grey,
Losing colour with every day.
And if you listen close
You'll hear her say,
"I'm not the one you want to save."
FernFeurig glänzend in der Stille,Fern11 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
flimmert einsam klein und fern,
suchend nach dem eignen Wille,
weit entfernt ein dunkler Stern.
Tausend gleißend, kleine Strahlen,
funkelnd gleiten von ihm fort.
Streifen wissend durch die Fahlen,
- hin, zu einem and'ren Ort.

The tears in my eyes...
My skin rotting away in a slow pace...
My bony fingers coming into view...
"No, please no!" I shouted...
"So idiotic you are..." She replied...
The air becoming colder at each breath...
The hair of myself becoming grayer...
A forsaken I was, and forever...
Following the orders of the forsaken queen...
Eating the corpses of the gold and blue...
The fear that I once remembered in my eyes...
The skin rotting I once remembered...
The screaming I once remembered...
Means nothing anymore, nothing...
Caught in a RainstormI woke up half past two that day,Caught in a Rainstorm9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Filled with lead my body weighed
At least a ton or two, I'd say;
I couldn't rise from where I lay.
There were torrential rains inside
My mind and floods came out my eyes,
I tried to stop the tide,
Tsunamis fought back; I tried.

Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
But unlike you
For the roses have withered
The violets are dead
Your veins are all empty
Your wrists were stained red
Now the dead flowers rest
On a grave they will lie
where next to them the little sister
Will silently cry
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
And once you were too

My heart is alone
I scream out in pain
And you put it into stone
These words aren't true
They're meant for you
But they were meant to burn
What will you do?
When will you learn?
I'm cold but I'm warm with the hatred that burns
I'm freezing but really I'm warm because I'm alive
My soul is rotting away, my dead flesh is blue and grey
My eyes are like marbles, they're white like my fate
I'm tired, I'm lonely, will you please just hold me?
I'm scared and I'm hungry but no one will love me
I want to die but how can I?
My future is a pit of fire
And if I don't want to burn
I can live forever cold
Umbrella, Umbrella, will you please stop the rain
My darkness, my darkness, will you please bring me pain
The light, it is blinding me, burning up my soul
The darkness, it comforts me and makes me feel at home
In the light, when I scream, no one can hear me
But it echoes in the dark like an angel's harp
Kissing In A DreamHow is it you feel intimate,Kissing In A Dream6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When of you, I know nothing?
As a lost, now found soulmate,
In my mind, you are lingering.
The one I was kissing in a dream,
Eyes of fire and so handsome.
A pairing we will hold in esteem,
A love that has yet to become.
Or once in a faraway place,
We were lovers in our pasts.
Dying in each other's embrace,
Only our love this day still lasts.
Reconnected by circumstance,
Wavelengths entwined and strong.
In darkness under stars, we'll dance,
Knowing this is where we belong.
Within a garden of slate, I wait,
In the light of a single moonbeam.
Trees cast a shadow on the gate,
Till again we are kissing in a dream.
The sun rises and shows its light.
I open my eyes and you I feel.
We'll meet again another night.
Was it a dream, or was it real?

The Afterthought Waking up a different wayThe Afterthought 1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It seems to happen every day
The only part of me that stays the same
Is the one always subject to change
And everything has turned around
The goddamn world is upside down
I hide so I don't make a sound
In fear that I may scream too loud
Everything is beautiful
Right before it goes to hell
So graceful up until I fell
Face first into the wishing well
I banged my knee and bruised my shin
Got all cut up somehow again
It happens when the world gets in
My armor is made out of skin
I'm tired of being a hologram
Decaying. I'm fading. I rot.
A waste of space, warming a place
In between the dream and the afterthought
