Show Me Your Dark SideGive me your darkness,Show Me Your Dark Side22 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I don't need the light.
Let me dance with the villain,
No shining white knight.
Tempt me with venom,
No promise of chaste.
With full lips of crimson,
Just only a taste.
Abandon the hero,
Sunder the good.
Revel in power,
Like only you could.
I don't need a savior,
to fight for a cause.
I just need your passion,
And all of your flaws.
Parasite.You're not the monster in my closetParasite.4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Nor the thing beneath my bed
No you're the monster in my dreams
That plays around inside my head.
You siphon out my energy
Yet you put a smile on my face
You drive me to the brink of crazy
Searching my mind for another taste.
You're a danger to my health
But I need you to survive
Without you in my head
I feel like I will surely die
You poison me more each day
With no mercy for my waning life
You'll consume me till I'm gone
Like a deadly parasite.
Tick TockTick tock, tick tockTick Tock9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The sound of the clock
Above my bed
In my head
It doesn’t go away
I’m cruelly aware
The world is unfair
Time runs away from us
Most don’t see the fuss
But it never stops
The clock forever ticking
High heels forever clicking
It all just passes by
Nobody ever asks why
It goes so fast
In the blink of an eye
The time has just flown by
And this is the worst part
Stepping into the dark
Because it’s coming
People go about their days
In a hundred thousand ways
But they never stop to think
That they might be on the brink
So tick tock, tick tock
Pay attention to the clock
Don’t let little things in the way
Instead think of how you can stay
Kano's WishAllured by a wishKano's Wish4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
That I'd be able to fly
I could go find my mom
Way up in the sky
Allured by a trick
It never was real
And I couldn't know
How I really should feel
These memories I have
Are not really mine
A mother and child
Another day, another time
And this useless old cloth
Fitted to my wrist
I'll soon take it off
And see what I've missed
And when I can fly
My goal will come first
I'll go and find Mom...
I'll be free of this curse.

Que chacun de nos jours fasse vibrer
L’émotion qui devrait nous célébrer!
Que le matin en ferveur dévorante
Nous abreuve en effusions transfigurantes!
La vie glisse en nous en immense mer,
La vie nous pleure et coule en mots amers.
Le bruissement de l’arbre à l’écrit se mêle
Et l’encre de notre sang nous révèle.
La flamme-bougies qui émeut l’instant
Vacille au miroir-moi inconsistant
En l’entre-deux-vies où déjà s’efface
Même la mémoire de notre face.
Nous avançons vieillissant aux carrés
Du jeu échelles-serpents chamarré.
La vie en sa réalité, si triste
Quand disparaît presque tout altruisme.
En soufflant toutes ses bougies d’un coup,
L’enfant fait un vœu en courbant son cou.
Tout là-haut, une étoile qui scintille
Lorsque de son vœu une fée s’habille.

The Process Of Death.Everyone is dying right nowThe Process Of Death.22 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
All of you are dying right now
You are dying right now
How, you may ask?
When you are born you are full of life
But as you grow old, your death grows young
As you grow old, you become tired,
Perhaps even depressed
That is the process of death taking its toll.
Many of you are afraid of death,
When in reality, we weren't ever really living...
We were simply always dying.

Where we all fight
Here you'll see

Take a seat by

Where corpses burn

Same Goodbye to her,
Some Game for him,
Same Cuts for them.
I say Hello to you,
Same reason they say it too,
And only if he knew,
That it cut right through.
I say Goodbye to her,
The drugs they’d reoccur,
All she could do was blur,
Out herself in liqueur.
I say Game to him,
But family seems grim,
And he prefers to swim,
In his darken grey film.
So see me Reaper,
The hills have gotten steeper,
And I’m only getting deeper,
And I’m now a lot weaker.
Justification for my EndI'm breath in ash and smokeJustification for my End21 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
With every bloody push
Only my enemies will choke
In this failed ambush
Another puff of tobacco
Another one gone
They can call me whacko
But I live on
Just gotta take another step
Another step to forget
No time to try and prep
Gotta reach that sunset
I know I'm no good
But I can't stop now
I promised I would
And I won't break my vow
I know your done and gone
Just living on in my broken dreams
But I'll keep moving on
Because tired of hearing my screams
I don't let myself sleep
Not when I could bring you back
Without you I weep
And I am still wearing black.
Storm CloudThe years fly by, but the more things change, the more they stay the sameStorm Cloud8 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You're still my Storm cloud, heavy with water, and struggling with your pain.
Don't you know that it's okay? There's nothing wrong with who you are
No matter where you go, or what you do, I'll always be your Rainbow star.
You can look without seeing, you can exist without feeling. You can stare a hole into the sky
Just know that I will lay beside you, even if you wish to die.
You may not remember, you may not care, but I made a promise I intend to keep
I'll never leave you, I'll never stray. Into the darkness, together we will leap.
If you're weary, you may rest. This journey of life was never an easy one.
I won't rush you, I won't push you. I'll wait here with you until you are done.
The monsters you battle, I cannot see. I cannot help, I cannot fight.
But I'll pick you up, dust you off each time. Reassure you with all my might.
And if you burst, dont feel ashamed. It's okay to let the rain waters rush down.
Winter White RememberedMunchkin had two speedsWinter White Remembered15 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Waddle and zoom
And her sweet little face
She had beautiful eyes
That looked black
But were actually blue
And a bee like tongue
To kiss the nose on you
Her own nose
Like all of her
Was tiny and wee
Yet our love for her
The mightiest sea
She had a cute
Bunny like tail
On her adorable butt
And her whiskers would twitch
And her cheeks she would fill
Like sunflower seeds and walnut
She could run so fast
She could climb
And she thought she could fly
She had a wonderful life
It's just a shame
That the beautiful die
She was sweet
She was smart
She was brave
She took pride in her form
She never looked frumpy
Her fur was the softest thing
Except for chinchillas
Her body is gone
But her ghost
Remains, always with us.
PetalsPurple petals scattered on the water surfacePetals7 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Like thoughts with no meaning or connection
Blood spilling out of the dead man's eyes
Like feelings escaping with no direction
The engine sputters and dies
The soil dries up and escapes with the wind
Wondering where it all went
With a body that has been completely skinned.
The purple petals drift away
The blood begins to dry
Leaving nothing interesting left
Except a feeling of wanting to die.
A single claw scrapes into the skull
A rat that has escaped judgement.
Like dread creeping into the body
And only the feeling of being distant.
You can fight in between the tears
If there are even any still there
And ask the world why
But the answer will not be fair.
There is no darkness around you
But neither is there any light
Everything just seems to exist
And all you feel is fright.
The trains keep on being late.
The musicians continue to bleed.
The warriors keep on dying.
The world keeps rotting from greed.
What if it doesn't get better?

petals strewn; unsung hymns – and a trail of snow-white lace.
The echoes of a choir’s song, sung earlier arise,
to break the silence as I’m searching for your face.
Summer warms the stones outside, where those who silent, wait
listening to my pounding heart as I am holding in my breath.
The chancel and the nave are lit with vibrant summer light,
And yet the little summer light of mine just died a little death.
Remnants from last springtime, floating through the open door,
memories of a fragrance of blossom burgeoning anew
My eyes cast down distracted briefly, gaze upon the floor,
a cold mosaic of feelings colored purple, grey and blue.
Faint footsteps in the distance, receding evermore,
A cloud of dust that follows sadly in your wake.
Your wedding shoes tread swiftly to a new and open door,
Yet my love so ever hopeful, holds me tightly, makes me wait.
The future crumbles in the church, where o

ever captured for eternity
shaped in love but so cold
frozen in time, a memory
single love, yet one of many
caught up in this creation
shrouded in deep mystery
beating with temptation
through golden hues it`s seen
carved beautifully in stone
this heart reflects great light
tenderness felt , yet still alone

An einen FreundGerade und auch frei heraus,An einen Freund12 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
So sah für mich die Sache aus.
Nun sagst du,
Und das lässt mir keine Ruh:
"Früher war ich anders,
War besser als jetzt."
Über diesen Worten grüble ich nun Nacht für Nacht,
Hab so manche Stunde drüber nachgedacht
Will helfen, will noch mehr verstehen,
Dich nicht länger so verzweifelt sehen.
"Mein altes Ich es ruft nach mir,
Ruft nach mir so furchtbar laut."
Dich so zu sehen, bringt mir Pein,
Doch wie verhelf' ich dir zum Glücklichsein?
Hab keinen Plan und keinen Rat,
Doch steh ich hinter dir bei jeder Tat.
"Wiedererlangen kann ich nur mein Glück,
Wenn ich bring' mein altes Ich zurück."
Wie ein Singsang tönt' es leis,
Und ich hoff es wird kein bittrer Preis,
Den für dein Glück du zahlen musst,
Doch meiner Hilf' zu jeder Zeit sei du dir stets bewusst...

Listen to this~ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaT7DaqPbxs most of it is inspired by this song…
What is this? This aching feeling inside of me…
I don’t know what it is….
It hurts when I see them….so…so happy together…
I put on a fake smile when I see them… am.. am I lying?
Am I truly happy or no….
I laugh, I talk, I go on with my day like nothing is hurting…
Nothing….nothing at all…
I try to ignore the pain…this excruciating pain in my chest…
But no matter I tried…. I can’t…
I just can’t take the pain out from my system….

When passed, greatly missed
Life's little moments fleeting by
Precious like love's first kiss
Each moment we spend
With those we hold dear
Each one more precious than the last
Untainted by hatred or fear
And all that we can hope
Is that each moment last forever
No matter how quickly it passes
Hoping that love will endeavor

Forgive me now,
For there is nothing to fear.
I will not fade,
But, simply, disappear.
Little GirlLittle girl has a dreamLittle Girl9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She can rule the world
She believes in everything
Everyone believes in her
That little girl is seven now
But she still believes
But now they tell her “don’t be silly”
You’re just a little girl
She turned ten the other day
She knows it was impossible
But a small, tiny part of her
Still believes she can rule the world
Little girl’s no longer little
She turned thirteen today
She forgot about her dream
She was getting carried away
Being fifteen she realized
Ruling the world was a foolish thought
She wishes she was young again
Just look at all the pain age brought
Why was it when she was five,
The whole world believed in her,
But now since she is eighteen
They don’t have a care in the world?
That little girl died young today
She was only twenty three
The only regret she ever had
Was not pursuing her dream

In this abandoned park
On the swings, down the slide
This wasteland under the stars
Listen to the crickets
We can learn their song
You say you have to leave soon
You say we don’t have long
But wait! Don’t go!
There’s still so much to do!
We haven’t seen the sunrise yet
The sky hasn’t turned blue
If we leave this playground
Abandoned in our minds
We’ll never come back here
We’ll have to leave it behind
I’m not ready to let go
Please don’t leave me here alone
I’m still just a little girl
You’re almost fully grown
Please don’t make me move on
I’d rather stay and play
The darkness creeps around you
It’ll carry you away
Just stay here with me
Don’t return to reality
Because if you do you’ll have to face
Growing up’s brutality
What Happened?What happened to the sunny summer days?What Happened?9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
What happened to dirty feet and grass stains?
What happened to the monsters under our beds?
What made them decide to make homes in our heads?
What happened to the easy, willful bliss?
What happened to cause the awkward years to be missed?
What happened to all the laughter and smiles?
What brought on times that make me cry for a while?
When will the sunshine cut through the dark?
Why must this life leave nasty scars on my heart?
