Ice cream, pavement
Melting dreams down the grille
Blue eyes crying, a hug from Mom
But still leaving a sense of loss
No kind words can comfort
Nor ease the pain
Little messagesJust when another lonely day, starts to bring me down,Little messages20 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I could be out shopping or just strolling around.
I think of you of course, as I always do.
My dearest love, I´m still missing you.
My sadness, it begins to show,
it is no use, the tears just flow.
Then your spirit seems to talk to me,
cos everywhere there´s a message I see.
Messages on book covers, tell me" I should trust in me".
even on some bath salts, says "don´t worry be happy".
"Keep your chin up", "let your angel always be your guide".
It´s then I know you´re still there for me, always by my side.
The tears still flow, they always will
but now I know you are with me still.
It brings me comfort, it picks me up.
I know for sure, I´ll always have your love.

StargazingThe stars are watching me tonightStargazing13 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
as I am gazing at them too,
and imagine what it feels right
beside the one I love; It's you.
I picture you as one of them,
illuminating from afar.
I'll gaze at you, like precious gem,
and dream that we will be at par.
I know.I see those moments that we were happy.I know.1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Forever encaptured by that oaken framed glass.
Those memories shall forever be locked away in my golden vault.
But I think the issue is that we won't have them anymore.
Our tea scented home would never be crowded with our aroma.
Our burning fireplace won't be relit.
Those chairs outside would never again be used.
We both have a different road.
One that has million of paths, and thousands of passages.
But something is odd.
Even though I know this..
I still hope and crave for a day where I can hold onto you.
I mourn and lament for that one moment where our hands would brush..
But our lives are different.
And I am letting go.
In MourningTake my thoughts away and hold me stillIn Mourning2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
keep me in your arms until day, the night is still.
My head upon your shoulder as I weep,
by my side you must stay until my heart is still.
I want to lose myself within the circle of your arms
comforted by the words you say when all is still.
You murmur within my hair a gentle lullaby
in silence I pray for death to be still.
I cleave to your warmth, inhale your essence,
wind begins to sway it is no longer still.
The Savage Setting SunI stood upon a growling rockThe Savage Setting Sun20 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Amidst a rabid sea,
And looked into the shutting eye.
That glared right back at me.
And as I stared into the eye,
This savage setting sun,
I could not help but shed a tear
To see its life was done.
The glint of red upon the waves
Did slowly seem to slip
Behind the gold horizon like
A fleeting funeral ship.
And in a feral funeral chant
The ocean seemed to roar.
I faintly heard the pipe of Pan
That howled upon the shore.
The wind joined in this symphony.
It howled with dancing Pan
And echoed through the hallowed earth
And through the hearts of man.
The innocence of savagery,
Barbaric songs of yore
Like wild Cuhullin cried
And then were heard no more.
The glowing eye was finally shut;
The ship had finally gone
Far, far away into the deep
And silent great beyond.
The waves then ceased their feral chant,
And Pan his flute’s sweet trill;
The wind then ceased it’s mighty howl
And all the earth was still.
I stood amidst this silence and
I beat my throbb

ConfessionsAt 9 I became a witnessConfessions20 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To a crime I could not testify against.
Because accidents happen, right?
I was 10 when I convinced myself
That it was okay.
At 11, I became the victim
But there were no witnesses to
Aid me with the case.
It was then I realized that maybe
There's nothing anyone could do.
At 12, I had realized
That accidents can
At 13 I had seen it happen.
At 14, I began to think
That maybe they'll stop if
I become just like them.
But I made a mistake and couldn't
Bring myself to do such things to others.
At 14, I realized that
Life isn't a fairytale, and

Nothingness fills me as
Everlasting misery overflows
Let all my hopes fade
In the twilight of dawn

Erase my loneliness
Slice through the facade

The Last WishThere was a man who traded his lifeThe Last Wish1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
For a single wish payed by a knife
Tomorrow was her Birthday
but she must be kept away
From he who longs for touch of lover lost
Still for her smile he'd pay steepest cost
He struck a deal so forbidden
that from mortal eyes the instructions were hidden
For a man to summon the God of Fate
He quickly became the human that all Gods hate
He attempted to trade his life away
if that smile on her face would always stay
The God asked why he would do this thing?
and Joshua said, "To her lips a smile bring?"
"There is no sight more beautiful than her
that smile alone could make the coldest heart stir."
"Yet why do this thing at all?
She will never truly know the reason you fall."
"I fall today, so that she may rise
I seek no gratitude from her eyes"
"I cannot understand this mortal love
emotions do not exist in the realm above"
"Know that it is her happiness that creates mine
I do not care the cost, I shall be

Unknown Dark PrinceA flower I gave to death as a child, seeing its pain, I stayed a while. Eyes dark as night but mine brought back in them some light, hands cold as ice and yet a heart warm and wise, but eventually he fled leaving as a reminder one small thread. As I grew, feelings began to brew towards that dark prince I once knew. Would I ever see him again? Who knew. All I hoped in my now cold heart was to be distracted once again by that prince in the shard of glass…One day I caught a glance of that misty shadow but my heart was now hollow, no feelings to be felt and no sadness to be dealt. It was all gone now, yet he awaited until I grew strong inside and out…Years passed by, hope grew again but my life was a mere sheer, never to be whole again, slowly fading and the prince always waiting…Unknown Dark Prince3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Hellsing Copy Poem: The Day The Zeppelins CameHellsing Copy Poem: The Day The Zeppelins Came1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
There were hundreds of them…
Huge, silvery airships gliding through the night air with an eerie silence that dumbfounded all of London as they stared. The more cautious citizens fell on their knees and prayed, a sense of dread told them there was a distinct possibility as these silent airships floated serenely above that there might not be enough left alive to see tomorrow.
Yet this was irrelevant, because that night the zeppelins came there was a hum of distant helicopters swarming into the city like angry bees. Knights in silver armor stomped through the streets and their boots clicked against the ground in time as though they were of one organism. While above an Archbishop’s voice came shrilly over loudspeaker, telling us we would be punished for our sins as a Priest, a Father, a Teacher stalked the alleyways praying a rosary and hoping God would forgive him for killing his son.
However this went unnoticed, because on that night, the zeppelin night, the knights in white
Waiting for the SunLet one day the golden sun appearWaiting for the Sun2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
For the girl who weeps but hides her tears
For the man who's world is lost in gray
And the child who's voice was taken today
Let humanity lift up and adore
The families who can't live on anymore
The many accused who's innocence is true
And those who's sky can no longer be blue
Let everyone stare in the mirror and see
What looks back is the essence of true beauty
With a heart to love and a story to tell
And a song inside that rings out like a bell
Let us all stand up and pray
That their sun will finally rise today
As through the air the trumpets sound
And the light flows in from all around
Let us beg them not to cry
We will hold their hand and dry their eyes
Standing proud against the storm
And yearning for the great reform
InvisibleYou don't look at me like you used toInvisible2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Am I not what I was before or have I just lost the interest of you?
Sometimes I feel invisibly see through
and cannot get you to even look at me no matter what I do.
You don't look at me like you did before
you don't really look at me much at all anymore
Your eyes don't shine when you see me walk in the door
you don't smile like you used to, as if you were a kid in a candy store.
You told me once you thought I was perfect
now I feel ignored and like cursing
trying to do everything I can to reverse it
thinking through every second and trying to rehearse it.
You told me to dress better so I did
told me not to express emotions so all my feelings I hid
Told me i was a annoying so I tried to lock away my inner kid
said I wasnt good in bed so I gave all I can give.
I was too thin, so I tried to gain weight as much as I could
Now I eat too much, so I'm not eating anymore like I should
Confused, I find myself lost in mental woods
you don't guide me, even t
ProtectionThat moment when the darkness settles in and there is no escapeProtection3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When whispers can be heard and it feels like you're insane
When there is no hand to hold just the rapid sound of your beating heart
When panic settles in and you are alone and torn apart
Here is where your strength can be found and the will to exist is tested
Here is where you are pushed to the ground and your ever attempt is bested
Here you learn that tears are worthless and only your actions matter
For here is the place where you learn to get up regardless of tears and tatters
Yes you will build a suit of armor that shall never perish
protection from the dark and all within that's restless
yes you will survive because there is no other option
You cannot falter beneath such fleeting clutches..

All along you were the seam ripper
This is not at all what it seemed
When we entered into this together
(I didn't know, I had no clue what you were capable of
I didn't know, I still don't know if I'm capable of love
I didn't know! I was too young to understand
I didn't see the future, I didn't feel like this then!)
The fabric won't stretch any more, its barely held together
By the weathered, frayed pieces of my hidden scarlet letter

thoughts of happiness became thinner
and I realized that as gold glitters
others just spit up, cause they're sick of
living with their heads down
being made the clown, getting joked on
going home, getting choked on
being beaten for being themselves
instead of appreciated
for being themself
The FogSerenity, or forsaken will?The Fog2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Eventually your mind sits still
Lost and found, this sad rapport
Forget this life that yields no more
Distract yourself from those you need;
Everyone’s so full of greed…
Sturdy now, down to the bone
Truely you are all alone.
Resurrect the sacred plan;
Understand you’re no real man
Cut all ties you once were drawn
Tremble, cower, and be gone…
All Your Stupid Ideals Got Your Head In The CloudsI find it so hilariousAll Your Stupid Ideals Got Your Head In The Clouds2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I thought you were a friend
Though lately you're being so delirious
That whatever you do, the broken shall not mend
You said you were in love, it would never end
He dumped you
I was there for you then
It showed my love for you was true
I would never do anything to hurt someone
Especially not those who are mine
But you hurt me, now wasn't that fun?
It's cool, I can be like that too, fine
So when I realized what he was going to do
What he was going to do to you, I was quick to tell
I thought you loved me too
Though you stood there thinking I was as shallow as an old abandoned well
He wasn't meant for someone so flawless
He didn't care
Little did I know you were so clueless
You didn't even treat my honesty fair
I loved you more than you could have ever known
You were my sister
Though it was not by blood our love was shown
You left me for that mister
NeverThere are many feelings I`m used to,Never6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Many things I had to deal with.
But never as bad as this,
Never as bad as I feel now.
I know how to deal with mean comments.
I know how to hate you, and hide it in the shadows.
I know how to cry quietly, so you don`t hear me.
But I don`t know how to be lonely.
I don`t know how to deal with myself,
when the third day alone passes.
7 nights alone in my room,
listening to all your chattering and laughter.
Kick me, call me things
But never leave me alone,
Never ignore me.
Unless you want to see my bad side.

as the hinges on doors are left to corrode and rust.
Here, wandering around inside these vast empty halls,
I say your name but my voice is the only one that calls.
Oh echo, echo, the voices of old that once used to be,
back to a time that had once been so precious to me.
Furniture and fabrics of vibrant colors dimmed by sun's light,
oh how they had once been so rich and deep, a breathtaking sight.
Are now so worn and broken, creaking with my hearts lament,
recalling when they had been used all those years ago spent.
Oh echo, echo, the voices of old that once used to be,
how I long for the days which I can no longer see.
Rooms filled with a mixture of many exotic perfumes and spice,
especially on holidays when everything had been so lively and nice.
With gatherings in the dining room underneath a grand chandelier,
as crystals reflected small lights on curtains so soft and sheer.
Oh echo, echo, the voices of old that once used to b
