Red to blackThe tears i shed on this dayRed to black4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Already dried on the red rose's petals
I shall never go back on my words
And never let your claws approach my heart anymore
The blood-stained blade you stabbed me with
Had already caught on fire and vanished in the darkness
And as I walked away, you stared at my crimson footsteps
As if letting your prey escape was the only option left you had
As I ran through the forest of empty words
you tried to soothe me with your lies
the red strings of fate you controlled
made me dance to the rythm of a funeral march
As the velvet passion faded away
I was able to escape your grasp for an instant
Screaming for help but no one could hear
the shouting of a tortured princess in her tower
But the day finally came
where I decided to burn the red roses down to ashes
and as red faded to black
I spread my scarlet wings and soared into the night.
A child no longerControlling me, forcing me, bending me to your will, no I don't think you will.A child no longer1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A child no longer I can choose and refuse. It's my life, my right to do as I please, to set my mind at ease. It's you I can't appease, nothing I do will ever please you. Nothing I say can change the way things are. Just my hopeless fear, mind on the edge ready to lose control. Nothing else to say just let it all go. Let it all flow, like an endless rain let it pour. Thoughts mixing and blurring can't tell what's, what anymore.
Unraveling feelings that can't be ignored. A child no longer, I can think on my own.
Your words they hurt, they cut like a knife, stabbing me to no end. I can only pray for it to stop, but I'll keep fighting till I drop. A child no longer, I can see clearly now. See my mistakes and flaws, You were right to call me wrong. Will I be able to stand tall, will I be able to make it through it all? To get up after I fall, I guess I'll never know, cuz a child's all you'll ever see.

Have no fear
For the sky above
Will always be clear
The words you speak
Hold only pure emotion
No hint of persuasion
Uncorrupt by devotion
A love so true
Unaltered by lies
As the dusk takes hold
You bring fireflies
I smile as I remember
The light is always here
If not in the sky
Then in who we hold dear

I could call you a word, yet the definition never seems the same,
Because you flinch like someone once carved it deep down within,
As a fallen guardian trying to scream above the unholy din.
You’ve nothing to fear, the nib has since dried up
Into a dormant crust, more parched than my coffee cup;
When an amain mind strikes that block, you’ll start to see
What it truly means to taper into an eburnine cacology.
Please don’t forgive this immolated, ashen expression
That runs too deeply aberrant, too petrified of indiscretion;
Nor this gelid ichor that leaks from lost cartridges,
For it murmurs only of failed ventures and carcasses.
My veins ripple in the tide of signatures and shopping lists,
With papercuts decorating the seams like lace on the wrist,
Did you ever feel a ringbinder snuggled around your neck?
Airwaves get thinner when the page absorbs a mere fleck.

DesperationAnxious clawing at the walls,Desperation6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My cage swirling around my mind.
I scramble for life and freedom,
While I flail down empty halls.
To the country from which no traveler may return,
My fears have left my life in a bind.
There to I wish to tread,
For thoughts of the future cause my stomach to churn.
I wish for escape, from my chains and cage,
To fly free of my swirling fears.
But family and false love drag me down,
And so I am berated by their rage.
My desires are fickle,
My focus untamed.
My mind on the verge of derangement,
As I struggle to hold back the flood to a trickle.
But who am I to strive for success?
Who am I to fight back these tears?
Who am I to want the live of a normal man?
Who am I to break under duress?
My Angel In WhiteThe day has come it's time to leaveMy Angel In White7 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To face the priest on bended knee
My angel in white must walk the aisle
And I must hide my tears awhile
A sight to behold this angel of mine
This is the day when you will shine
Shine with you lovely innocent love
As the Father watches you from above
Bows frills and laces too
Cannot outshine the beauty of you
An image in white with flowered band
This is the day God takes your hand
The Dark RoomThe Dark Room12 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
There is a room that holds the darkest memories of love lost.
They're in the corner of the wall, near the floor,
those things that you swore.
You fought to get me back, at any cost.
You lovingly caressed me with your words,
each one inflicted wounds, leaving scars.
I remember, they tasted so sweet, because they were ours.
I found out about your deceit, and I fell backwards.
You were supposed to protect me, but you ripped me apart.
I had to stand up for me, pull the stakes out from where they were anchored.
Doing so left holes in my heart.
It's taken years for me to fight through the anger.
I can honestly say, I never had a fresh start.
But in this room, where I cried, I finally see there is no more danger.
You Never ListenedIt was poisonous, I had to leaveYou Never Listened14 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
That doesn't mean I didn't love you
You just weren't right
You saw the people I hated
How they spoke to me
How they treated me
And you made friends with them
You saw my panic
The crippling fear
I told you about it
And you pushed me toward it
I told you my secrets
Things I didn't tell anyone
Not even my closest friend
And you hated me for it
I told you what I needed
How I wanted to be treated
What needed to change
And you ignored me
I tried to be happy
Just like you told me
And you became distant
I told you I didn't want it
I didn't even like it
I was done
And you did it anyways
I told you to leave
You were bothering me
It wasn't fun anymore
And you stayed
I told you to get out of my life
Don't talk to me
Don't contact me at all
And you finally listened
The FailureIf I offer some kind statementsThe Failure20 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
So your sadness might subside,
Ignore them completely
Make it look like I never tried.
If I'm acting too happy,
Say "You're acting like a fool
Take life more seriously!"
Make those words sound cruel.
If I seem to be upset
Scold me on the spot
"You think YOU have problems?
You don't know what you got!"
If I try to add something
To an ongoing conversation,
Subtract me from the group
Shower me with alienation.
If I show you some respect
Laugh it off completely,
"Who gave you the right
To come and talk to me?"
All of my successes
That I thought would make folks proud
"It doesn't mean a thing, Jim!"
You've told me out loud.
I should only be remembered
For the failures that I've had,
No one cares about my triumphs
Only times I've messed up bad!
A loser I shall be
In the eyes of so many,
That so-called self-confidence
I no longer have any.
Someone to laugh at
And say "Hey, look at Jim...
My life may be tough
But at least I ain't HIM!"

Of wind that blows the trees they struck.
Against the branches they swing and swerve,
Nature’s way that’s here to serve.
For there is harmony within the zone,
A mystic force to call of their own.
And from the trails, where life sustain,
By a feline cat that’s curious to retain.
This little one has a bigger dream,
To cross beyond the valiant stream.
A stream of roads where man once build,
Beyond the charts the man has wield.
And tread the wishes of the friends to part,
Who warn of man’s wicked heart.
Yet nothing will stop this impetuous friend,
Who dares to strive on the road at end.

De pleurer en s'étouffant, pour ne pas les inquiéter.
D'avoir mal sans jamais pouvoir s'épancher... ou hurler.
D'être brisée à l'intérieur, en continuant à sourire.
De tous les empêcher de voir à quel point ils me font souffrir.

To see what can be done to heal
My broken heart which you destroyed
Hoping to find a cure that is real
Don't search for me you've done enough
I am shattered and broken again
You once fixed me, but now it is undone
You have seen everything and how its been
How could you do this to me, after all
We were once inceprable, but no longer
I can't seem to find the will to live
They say what dose t kill you makes you stronger
But that line is a lie like the ones you told
You didn't kill me, you left me to do instead
You left me with a bleeding heart exposed
Chained to you like a slave to a bed
Unable to escape my feelings for you
Even after all you've done, I can't hate
I will always love you, but if you come looking
Where you've left me, you'll be too late
I don't plan to stay, for it's to unbearable
To see that you never loved me, or had a care
Are you happy now, You strumg me along
And now you have broken me beyond repair

The pain shot through my abnormal body...
My nails growing faster than a spark...
My nails forming into claws...
"No! It can't be!" My words turning into barks...
"Give me the potion" The human voice echoed greatly...
My breath became more sour than a lemon...
My teeth formed into the shape of fangs...
I was a wolf, no, not a wolf, a worgen...
Running wildly with the alliance...
Forming into a human, forming into a beast...
The hairs that sprouted from my skin I once remembered...
The pain that shot through my abnormal body I once remembered...
The horrible claw and fang growth I once remembered...
Means nothing anymore, nothing...

when hurtful words turn to bitter thoughts
when contempt turns to yourself
you, too, will feel like some toy on a shelf
and within each bullet you will find
with hopeful lies it is lined
away from you slips your pride
you couldn't see that they had only lied
and then the words erupt through your head
painting your life's canvas red

I weep upon my city's outcast slate.
For I love this town, truly I adore,
From every ditch to every grate.
However I have not been faithful
With my words to all these doors,
Feeding sunshine yet to be deceitful
To only one of those I swore.
I feel like I can fix this.
Changing my disgusting disuse,
To something remindful of bliss,
For every door I have refused.
These doors are my gateway to love,
Scarred, yet strong wood to be proud of.

Inside and outside
To never let you fall
I wanna be your bride
I wanna be your arm
To give you sence of touch
To bring you no harm
To give you much and much.
I wanna be your eyes
To show you the world
To keep in paradise
To never get you cold.
I wanna be your ear
To hear your guitar
To be completely dear
To move you to the stars.
I wanna be your feet
To move you anywhere
To give you all you need
And fly into the air.
I wanna be your voice
To go from your lips
That's making no noise
But reach enourmous deeps.
I wanna be your breath
To lightly touch your lips
I wanna be you death
Of life that never sleeps
I wanna be your life
To never go out
I wanna be your wife
To make your music loud.
I wanna be your fate
To make true every wish.
But maybe I am late?
Am I your golden fish?
I wanna be your slave,
I wanna be your doll
Until and after grave
I wanna be your all.
ThunderstormsOh, ah, this feeling of dark loneliness;Thunderstorms17 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I feel like I have talked so much of it!
But what am I supposed to do? I guess
I let it rot my soul, oh, bit by bit.
I was about to reach my paradise,
Where love and happiness bloom like flowers,
But some sweet thing appeared, something so nice,
And I fall again in this dark hour.
And though my sweet, sweet rain falls frequently,
It comes with thunderstorms and lightning bright.
Oh, how I long to heal and be set free,
But such a thing is gone just like that light.
Could I be truly free from such a cage?
My birds just sing for freedom from this stage.

I have matured.
I don't ever want to forget what I was taught; history condemns you to suffer more if you learn nothing.
My greatest weakness was trusting everyone unconditionally, and I had not realized it until the final day of our relation.
Grace me with a name I cherish
Before the baby you knew comes to perish.
An old man living having known nothing.
That's what gets stuntmen in watered eyes to be jumping.

Running through my veIns
From acidic rage
My head throbs
My vision blurs
My heart pounds
And my speech is slurred
My mind is racing
I can't think
But my tongue becomes sharp
As I start to speak
I'll tear you down
Until you are no more
I'll leave you weak
Lying limp on the floor
But it won't be my fault
It'll all be yours
You opened your mouth
Even after you were warned

It never seems to stop, this I know,
Suicidal thoughts just do swoop,
Taking my mind in through my hoop,
I know I wouldn't do it, that's why I write,
To deal with the anger, bitterness and spite,
My hatred for that man never does stop,
Which brings the evil right to the top,
Even that will drag me down,
Wanting to end him with a hit to the crown,
Even that's something I can't do you see,
For I must have a sense of humanity.
My Dear FriendIncreasingly a much needed person, the wall of which I lean upon.My Dear Friend20 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You keep me clear headed in my darkest of times, emotions are downright disturbing.
I’ve fallen in love with you, it doesn’t even matter what kind, I just want to sit close to you and leave all these worries behind.
I feel proud I can do the same for you, and you’re the only one I’ll believe that it’s true.
Such a blind trust, so unaware they say… I’d only say to a point, it’s rare to feel this way.
Where I would normally be jealous, where I would normally get upset, but with you I feel neutral and content.
Nothing you do bothers me and I’m beyond glad, but lately my heart has been wounded and
I’ve gotten a little bit bad.
I don’t doubt a single thought of yours and with my life I would trust, however it is unrealistic to say you can keep track of every slip of words.
Perhaps I’m now too weak; maybe I’ve let my walls down to fast overnight.
