SeafoamI think that perhaps I will live life aloneSeafoam18 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And die silent and soft in my vagabond home
Outlive the people who still know my name
And through my departure, leave earth just the same
I'll leave no one behind me to cry in the night
I'll leave no great sorrow or absence of light
But if I end up leaving someone behind
And I sleep, uninvited in thoughts in your mind
I have no great wisdom to banish your sorrow
No special thoughts for a brighter tomorrow
But please, dear friend, if you find yourself able
Don't strap me down to a cold metal table
Don't paint my face or polish my nails
Or set me up in a box and peer in through the rails
Just wrap me in cotton and rock me to sleep
And lower me into the billowing deep
Don't let me rot in a box in a grave
I want to dissolve into seafoam and waves
Stand UpYou let them hold you down, with fear,Stand Up13 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Their cruel words are all you hear,
And you wont speak up, from where you lay,
If you don't stand up, here you'll stay.
Were both survivors, you and I,
But you'll never be free if you don't try,
I know its easier to stay this way,
But you only have this one chance to break away.
Stand up, stand your ground,
Use the voice you just found,
This is all a game you'll no longer play,
Because if you let them win then you will pay.
They can't hold you down forever,
Use your brain, you're much too clever,
To let them walk all over you,
You're stronger than that, you know its true.
Because you're stronger than you've seemed,
And smarter than they've gleamed,
You're better than them by far,
Stand up, show them who you are.
Sanity (poetry) The tears I cry are tears of abuseSanity (poetry) 17 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Forever alone and over use
Silence cries and Sleepless nights
while most sleeps tight
I lie, even to myself
I am overwhelmed
I'm ashamed to be me
and yet, no one will ever leave me be
Bullies and words thrown
Leave scars on me, the unknown
As I cry myself to sleep
No one realizes how my depression is deep
But do they care?
of courses not, they wouldn't dare.

And slowly, I begin to wonder..
If you'll ever lose the contrite,
That you're drowning under.
I call out your name,
Entrapped in a trance..
Feelings stay the same,
Throughout this dance.
I watch the subtle waves,
As they crash ashore..
Stopping my soul's pain,
From becoming more.

Twice a day the mother calls no laughter lives to find.
Twice a day the mother's calls turn beloved rest to hate.
Twice a day at minimum she sets her deadly bait.
Twice a day the mother calls and scars the daughter's mind.
Twice a day the mother calls no laughter lives to find.
Twice a day on quiet days, the offspring find spare time.

Is it real, what I hold in my hands?
is it even a person before you that stands?
or are you looking at a ghost that's drowning in sand
I don't know what you see
but it's not what I show
I am not the girl you see
whom you think you know
I am nothing
yet me all the same
I am a ghost in a body I've wrongfully claimed
I am a shell full of nothing but flame
don't call me a human that's not where I fall
I am an it
that's what I'll be called

I can write poetry again.
Now that my heart has shattered
My writing will once again matter.
Now that my heart is in pieces
The scribbles on paper increases.
Now that my heart has been thrown out
I no longer care what I write about.
Now that it was you that ripped me apart
I now no longer have a vulnerable heart.
Found love.I’m the dark and blank prince of damp depression,Found love.22 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A disgusting monster disguised in oppression.
Rust scraped off in flakes from my world by claws,
I’ll keep digging until I hit blood, those are my laws.
But it came like an answer to a prayer long forgotten,
With her around, I feel like eleven on scale of one to ten.
It sprung up, from the depths of a hole ridden heart chamber,
I’d compare her to a rose, but I’d rather not insult her.
With chains made of lead and gaze of iron, I can’t deny.
To say I’m anything but disgusting would be a bold faced lie.
I may be silent, but I wish to praise, I wish to sing!
Tendrils of love latching to my neck again, what a thing.
My sweetest dear, I’m out of words, believe it or not,
I can rip a thousand words from a flower or a blood clot,
But you’re amazing beyond my speech, can’t find the words I seek,
I love it, I’m at loss of words but I feel love, I don’t feel weak.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at lose of day;
Life but Dull and GrayLast to light that never blink, that made their life but constant shrink.Life but Dull and Gray10 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The same mistake of the average man whose life but dull and gray.
While you accept the people's burden, rushing that is now hasten,
There is but not hint of hope that's broken, never the warmth to stay,
There is the light that gleam its dreary shine, sever the warmth to stay;
Only darkness to pray.
This Time I'm TryingMy heart is the ocean,This Time I'm Trying17 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Head in the sky,
Showing this emotion,
Just to catch your eye,
Cause I speak with inspiration,
For these things I see,
As I walk in the precipitation,
Can this really be?
I have something to say,
And even if my world is gray,
I still rise every day,
One day I'll be okay,
But for now I'm fighting,
In this iridescent lighting,
Cast from the cracks inside,
In the darkest corridors of my mind,
I carry the weight of the world in my hands,
As these sands,
Pour from the glass houses in the sky,
All I can do is try,
But I'm always slipping,
These chances to keep myself together,
To make it all better,
So I'm calling for assistance,
At the insistence,
Of my hearts resistance,
Cause I'm fighting the distance,
As I hear these whispers on the air,
I'm opening my heart to share,
Cause I'm the ocean and sky,
With emotion in my eye,
So inhale the words I breathe,
Oh what a relief,
To let it go,
Cause time is going by so slow.

I won't give up I won’t call a quitz
I’m sorry you’re sad don’t bring out the horns
Life ain’t great all roses have thorns
I know life sucks yeah it’s a bitch
It’s like scratching but you can’t find the itch
I wanted to be there for you but you needed space
C’mon man human love isn’t easily erased
When you blocked me I was like “Just my luck!’
I got so mad I yelled “WHAT THE FUCK?!”
At first I thought it was noting that you were mad for no reason
I was so confused you made it seem like treason
But then I realised there was so much more
It was right in front of me I just had to open the door
Don’t forget I have feelings too
But you somehow did, what am I to you?
Am I your bestie or am I your foe
Do you still love me because I just don’t know
Life sucks right now but I know we will get through it
We are best friends I know we can do it

His saddened eyes will never dry
How cruel is life who signed the deal
As all were born, we all shall die
Shattered fragments lost to time
Pass with beauty as age creeps
Unanswered questions dance with rhyme
And flirt with fate where dead men sleep
Oh cruel is time as if askance
To treat so few as only men
From dust to dust the wind of chance
Steals the past once more again
To her ... and her heartWho you seek to be and who you are,To her ... and her heart17 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
is all too often just, divided by a scar.
Who you want to be seen as, be loved for,
is just what you were, before you tore.
What darkness you seek to find,
hidden away in your own mind,
what solace there is,
when all you want, is loved bliss?
What I can, for you
for both of us, what can I do?
What or who, can come to you
what or who, will you come to?
Will you, allow and call out to me,
will you, follow the path, I show thee?
Will you take my hand, even if just the finger of one,
just not to be lost, before half of it is done?
You are so young, just a child,
you are a baby, sweet and yet alive and wild.
You are, who I see, when I look at old memories,
those that were, before I lost the fight, for my fatalities.
Let me heal your wounds for you,
let me hold thy heart, close to mine too.
Allow me just, just to cry,
allow me just, just to try.
Allow me to try to save you,
'coz what kills you, will kill me too.

I never got to say goodbye
Your pictures that are flowing
Match the twinkle in your eye.
I hope that you are doing well,
I hope that you've been bold
And I wish that you would now discard
The lies that you've been sold.
They're watching, I just know it
They're watching from the sky
And even though you're in my heart
I never got to say goodbye.

I am here alone in my mind
silent growing, dreams are spent
where the whispering days slept
sleep here next to my side
Lady mine, just right, mine
some day soon problems pass
working, hardly working
thinking of working for me
someday soon entrepreneur be
not working but thinking
and planning be, peerless

Oceans Of TearsLadies and gentleman,Oceans Of Tears17 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Let me hear it loud,
At the pull of the pin,
Raise this shroud,
Cause it's not so easy these days,
Going against the grain,
Encapsulated inside this maze,
Inside my brain,
Have some respect,
Before you interject,
For I cannot breathe in a vacuum,
As I feel these feelings loom,
Cause it's asphyxiating me,
But generously I'm giving,
Is this really living,
To try so hard,
Let loose at the drop of a card,
Are these thoughts my own,
Or some horrible monster unknown,
Feeding off my bleeding mind,
With boundaries undefined,
It's a hard pill to swallow,
With a shaky path to follow,
I'm walking a thin line,
Between yours and mine,
This life is growing weak,
With every moment we speak,
So forgive me,
For writing this plea,
To the empty hearts of skeletons in the beach,
With the door just out of reach,
I'm not about this emotion,
Drowning in my own tear filled ocean.
