Cyhydedd Fer SonnetClouds blocking out the stars and moonCyhydedd Fer Sonnet22 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I wonder if dawn will come soon
As each day grows ever tougher
It seems I can only suffer
Darkness dominates the hour
And I pray for spirit power
In pain I gaze upon the skies
Longing so much to become wise
Trying to keep my heart alive
To see God above do I strive
What strength would He want to give me
In the face of my destiny?
How can I survive in the black
When honest hope is what I look?

But that is impossible
Perfect is a lie
She prefers females
Yet she is wrong in their eyes
Why do they care so?
Body, plush and soft
A healthy being walks by
They call her ugly
World powers are here
They say they are the good guys
Yet Earth is dying
Self proclaimed pure being
He says that he tells the truth
But greed makes him lie
Society darkens light
Weeps for its victim
Animals said wild
Yet humans make more chaos
Are we the advanced?
Companies are mad
Willing to lie to make cash
Then say it's science
Real life is the truth
They say that it's lies online
But it's opposite
Great men full of doubt
Insulted, beaten, and hurt
Then told to suck up
This mind is unique
Then they teach idiocy
Now it's standard man
Knowledge in one thing
Taught knowledge in other thing
Knowledge of nothing
They make us normal
Then tell us normal is wrong
Only spreads illness
Teachings are lost so
These words now all mean nothing
Will you remember?

No hopeIn a town with no name where we all go to hang our head in shameNo hope20 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
where the broken are laid to rest beneath the sorrows of this town
a desolate land with no hope where even dreams drown and
in this forgotten paradise where happiness comes at a price
where the children's laughter is smothered in the cries of this
forgotten paradise where the sun never shines and the flowers
never bloom where we all go for our final tomb

Why can’t I breach
Trapped like hoarders
Love, can’t bloom
Across this distance
Need your assistance
Thoughts and resistance
But, my heart so persistent

Tweet, tweet little bird,
Clad in white and yellow,
Making her cheerful song heard,
The cheerful iron-hearted fellow.
Beneath sunny softness lies darkened wings,
Sharpened steel to cut the bars,
Like water over the rueful bee's stings,
Is the wind to soothe scars.
She is an untamed rose,
Who begs to be understood,
Her loneliness shows,
Repelling the woeful good.
Tweet, tweet little bird,
Freedom will come one day,
Make your cheerful song heard,
And drown out your dismay.
Sonnet 1A grey mist you conjured around my mindSonnet 116 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My love for you dear is everlasting
The feelings you kept around me were kind
You make me feel like a real human being
When I am with you I feel ador-ed
I feel so beautiful, ever so great
When I am with you, you fuck with my head
my inner-mind is not in a good state.
But you are like fire to my gasoline
You make me someone else I am not me
You make me scared, you make me act so mean
You need to leave my life, just let me be
I'm better without you, you need to go.
I'm done with you, no one will ever know.
A poem about WWIIWar is only the beginning of hell.A poem about WWII15 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Offending a country only creates enemies.
Right around the corner was almost defeat.
Losing was something we feared.
Destruction and devastation everywhere.
Who gained land and who lost them?
Another shot fired, Hitler gained and advantage.
Real or just a long, terrible nightmare.
Then United States entered the fight.
Was it worth the loss of friends and loved ones?
Over? Would we be able to live in tranquil again?

Or years that pass
Its how it starts
And how it lasts
If what we feel
Is what we show
Then how we feel
Theyll always know
Its little things
That pass us by
And once they're gone
We start to die
We let our lights
Die from within
Never letting people in
We do not realize
What we start
Or when its gone
That we've lost our hearts
And people go
And what we see
Is how we know
They are all different
But yet, the same
Such different parts
That all remain

Sometimes I look up at the sky
And simply ask the question why
For time moves on
Here... and gone.
So why won't the tears cease?
Time is meant to ease.
Yet I wonder where you are
Are you here, near, or perhaps far?
I wish I didn't make mistakes
Leaving destruction in my wake.
Many a time I have had my way.
Yet this time, it is I who shall pay.

And I must observe it for hours; for hours.
The wooden box; hands scraping; mine scraping.
I find myself hurt in showers and showers
In the blistering heat
Until it turns cold
And I sit in my seat
And my tongue grows old
Saying "Child! Oh, child!
Just wait for our time.
It'll take a while
But our hands will prove fine.
And I know that you're scared and overwhelmed by uncertainty
And these feelings of pain strike so unpredictably.
You may feel like a ghost but you're still flesh and blood.
You can't make yourself perfect, though it's not like you should.
Find in you the vigor to not lose your head;
Not take a step down and cower away instead
And you will find a place you can love at last:
Walls strengthened by life and not made of glass."
How could you ever know, you fool?
My heart is anxious and and it's burning; it's burning!
And my mind races with the thoughts it's making; it's making!
The vile dreams keep returning; they're r
