We only get to be mature
- our most glorious selves -
for the briefest of moments
Ohne dichAuch wenn mein Herz weintOhne dich2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Gedanken im Schmerz betäubt
Bleibe ich doch stets geeint
Obwohl dein Fehlen mich zerstreut
Mein Leben ginge weiter
Viele Ufer noch zu entdecken
Auch ich werde wieder heiter
Der Schmerz wird sich bedecken
Aber ist es denn Leben?
Wenn ich mir mein Verlangen verwehre
Ist es tatsächlich daneben?
Das ich dich so sehr begehre
Wollt ich nicht stets alles geben?
Weil ich dich so sehr verehre
Egal was die Zukunft bringt
Und sei es noch so viel Glück
Ist es doch nur bedingt
Den meine Gedanken kehren stets zurück
Ich könnte auch ohne dich
Doch ich will es nicht.

I leave no path for you to trace
It’s not because I don’t want you here
I just don’t need something else to fear
I’m not afraid that you’ll sell my soul
Or attempt to reach some other goal
This is burning a hole through my heart
Should I say what’s tearing me apart?
I’ve made my choice, but I won’t tell you
For fear of what you can do
A whistle blower would mean my end
For I would have no way to defend

Forget the pain
Forget the fears
There's nothing to gain
Forget the one's that you thought you knew
Forget the memories that you believe to be true.
Forget the mistakes of your horrible past
Because there's nothing more wrongfully vast.
I want to forget all the tears I've cried
All the reasons to live have gone and died.
This feeling won't last forever, I know
But for now I'll let my weakness show.
Remember the good times you had
Remember how they made you glad.
I'll never forget how they made me feel
But I won't let them see my heart to steal.
Tonight I'll sing myself to sleep
Tomorrow look in the mirror and weep.
But it will be okay
Not everything stays grey.
The Rulers of NowhereWe marched through civilizationThe Rulers of Nowhere11 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
We were lost girls and boys but we held our heads high,
So they cast us onto the dusty plains of Nowhere
Only to mock us of our pride;
“Behold the nobles of Nowhere,
Their kingdom is none of my own.
They breathe the filth of their meaningless words
And through their future-less lands they roam.”
They filled the wild winds with their laughter
As we sat on the thrones of their truths and lies
They are so consumed in their opinions,
They ignored our mighty voices rise.
“All hail and behold!
We are the Kings and Queens of Nowhere,
We are honoured where we stand.
We wear crowns of the sticks and stones thrown by those who could never understand.
We wield swords of fiery might and soul.
forged by our immortal courage and golden lion hearts.
For we are now and always Kings and Queens of Nowhere,
And our mighty kingdoms will now and forever last!”

Still can't see the top.
What point is there in trying?
But something keeps me hoping.
To fall down
So there's no need to frown.
Made it farther
Than I thought
Can't just let my spirit rot.
Too much hope
Too much at stake
Only one real choice to make.
And someday I'll see the top.

Know I love you so.
Though the miles lay between us
I would drop it all and go,
to stand beside you and to hold you
to tell you how I care
to see the joy upon your face
but alas I can't be there.
So Happy Birthday darling
I will send this letter now
and hope that it will reach you
and you'll understand, somehow,
Just how much I miss you,
how the hours feel like years
and that I think of you every single day
and often must hide tears.
Have a happy birthday baby
I'm sure it won't be long
until we are together,
so for now let's stay strong.
And smile through the distance
keep our hearts filled with light.
But for now please don't think of me,
and have fun on your special night.
Loose ThoughtsIf ink falls on a page,Loose Thoughts31 minutes ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
but nobody is around to see it,
does it still make something profound?
If my pen screams in rage
and my paper throws a fit,
does it make a sound?
If every word broke free from their cage
and refused to submit,
could meaning still be found?

How did I get here?
To this place
To this destination
To this position
To this scene
I got lost in my memories.
I sit and I remember
I pretend that everything was alright
I continue to ponder
Could any of it have been different
Inside my mind I search
Though I tried hard, I have no answers
My facade has been destroyed
I must now face myself
My light has been engorged by the darkness
The promise of happiness is no longer there
The ache inside of me is ever unending
It is killing me, for there is no remedy
My despair is beyond suffocating
This feeling consumes me
I feel so alone

escapes my mouth, and I have none yet.
The world is dark and moist and wet,
And my future looks like it is set.
The world was once warm,
my chest would be a drum.
But now I am gone,
and No, I won’t come.
The world is grey,
And now it showers
To let go of our pains,
Show each our own powers.
In the palm of her hand, she holds mine.
It’s warm, and my breath would hitch again.
I’ll never let go of your tear-soaked hand ever,
My sweet, sweet Madeline.
Great As Nature My Lady, I pray I have passed her test,Great As Nature5 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
although I know, I'm not more than her fool.
The snow-covered mountains, white of her chest
the beautiful landscape where from she rules.
The cherry-blossom flush, deep in her cheeks,
and the waves and the sea, tide in her eyes,
the feel of her hair, her soft velvet streaks,
her smile and her stare, gentle touch inside.
The beat of her heart, it keeps mine time,
and smile on her face, brighter than the moon.
I long for the day, when bells ring sweet chime,
and the weather is kind, like she, in June.
Yet, I feel, I cannot tell her through words,
I tell you in kiss, watching flight of birds.
Wrap me Up in a Fort of FearsI built a fort of hopes and dreamsWrap me Up in a Fort of Fears6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
hid in it while I slipped away into fears
still I was blanketed by what could be
as I accepted the cause of my tears
I can’t be here and I can’t be there
I’m torn in two and can go no where
its not that I didn’t try
but that my mind is beginning to fly
nothing can console my thoughts
nothing can anymore be taught
I am gone, I can not see
I am gone, I can no longer be me.

don't tell me that a demon's taken control of me
don't hide behind the god you claim to serve
your fascination with my junk still makes you a perv.
Dark CloudsIf it weren’t for the thick black smokeDark Clouds22 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
We would have seen what lit the flame
Behind clouds you slit your own throat
The poison in your vanes’ to blame.
Darkness slipping through the cracks,
Flaws of what was once perfect.
Illness in shadow, led the attacks
Making sure the blade fit…
Softly in the hands I held…
Imagined ‘til the end of days.
Could it be a dream from hell?
Still wishing I would wake.
