Everything Has A PlaceFor everything that ever was,Everything Has A Place9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
there is a certain sort of buzz.
And everything that is to be
can be found singing merrily,
floating in the sky above.
But for all of those who dwell this land,
and walk this place, not hand in hand,
we bear with us a hidden pain,
that creates in us a guarded strain.
We die inside, crying, and can never stand.

He turns to the stars to help him drop the knife.
Holding out hope that there's a way to clean his slate,
But the world will miss his ending and the cries come late.
The longing for the warmth of another by his heart,
Came at the cost of knowing they'd always be apart.
It's painful I know to see that boy in this kind of light,
But it's a sacrifice he could make because he was unable to fight.
I cry silentlyI cry silently when I'm aloneI cry silently13 hours 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

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

We all are desperate and doomed
To want much more than we consume

InsanityIt always starts out the corner of your eyeInsanity8 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
a shadow, an animal, a smile so wry
but it will grow to something more
something to make you check behind doors
a feeling that makes you worry away
one that makes you question your say
and then you'll start to imagine them near
without eyes and mouths but still with those sneers
you'll start to imagine them breaking your neck
yet you convince yourself you've nothing to fret
then in your head a voice so clear
until it's all you're able to hear
and that is when you'll start to worry
that you belong in rooms as white as flurries
that you'll be given a jacket to match
to wear until they can fashion your patch.
But those with insanity I have advice to show
just sit back and let the disease grow
because things that can grow don't wander places they shouldn't go
Where My Heart LiesSoft as feathers against my skin,Where My Heart Lies9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
breezes whisper secrets to me.
They reach out into the dark night.
My home is where my heart lies.
Through the sounds of the gentle waves,
the reeds sing me a lullaby.
A moonlight melody awaits.
My home is where my heart lies.
So come and sing along with me,
and we can chase stars together.
Follow me to my hideaway.
My home is where my heart lies.

but they don't give anything but pity.

I am a shambling wreck without thee.
I was so happy when we first met,
and so sad now without thee.

to be cursed instead of blessed?
oh, what lamentable circumstances
that rids you of many different chances.

Is it a crime
To wish for your end
You denied me my place
The one I earned
Forget my face

I don’t belong

I would say so long
But I don’t know how
DifferentYou wake up.Different16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
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 More16 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...

Or my acceptability?
Why don't you look me in the eye?
You're not a god up in the sky?
You know nothing of my life...
Yet you seek to plunge your knife.
Go ahead and give your best...
I've passed many brutal tests.
I'm still here and standing tall.
You'll never make me feel small.
I always triumph in the end.
I'm adept at mind games, friend.
I never break...I always bend.
Can your small mind comprehend?
Your minor insults hold no weight.
You're a pretend potentate!

Cold and brokenThe cold wind blowsCold and broken5 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I'm frozen to the bones
But you're nowhere to be seen
My hands are cold
My legs tremble
I can't remember any
They're all gone away
Into the dark
The sky has turned grey
The birds fled
For the white winter to come
And I stand alone
I don't know where I am
I wonder why
The thunder precipitates
I will have to run away
But everywhere is nowhere
And you are gone
The place I saved for you
In my heart
DistanceI wish you were here with me…Distance7 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Why must you be so far away?
If you were here would you kiss me?
Or do you just lie day after day?
I want to hold your hand.
I want to kiss your cheek.
Is that too much of a demand?
Or are kisses for the weak?
I sometimes wish I didn’t love you.
I sometimes wish I didn’t care.
But I cant stop even if I wanted to.
I cant imagine life without you there.
It feels as if only the sky connects us.
But it also keeps us apart.
I cant love you but I must.
I will even if it breaks my heart.

And would pray you take my hand
Lady, I am crying
For they will not understand
Lady, take my laughter
While my laughter it still rings
Lady, meet me after
Where I go to seek my wings
Lady, will you miss me
On the day that I should leave
Lady, will you mourn me
Lady, will you grieve
Lady, I am dying
And would pray you take my hand
Lady, I am trying
For this anguish to withstand.
Lady, I am calling
For your touch of spirit bright
Lady, will you guide me
From the darkness into night.

Freedom of the SoulShe was tired from almost all of the things that has in her life.Freedom of the Soul15 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 Friendships16 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.

Though cuts I bear, not one does hurt,
For there are none on my young heart.

For an early promise I have made.
Crawl forth I will to light beyond.
Until at last, my prize is won.
Time For ChangeWe have to blow this all to smithereens,Time For Change19 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.
