The Purple Man's PoemSeeking revenge on the killer doesn't make you any better than him. He killed you but you've killed too. He targets innocent children. You target innocent night guards. You don't trust us night guards. Well we don't trust you animatronics. I HOPE YOU DIE IN A FIRE! YOU CAN'T.The Purple Man's Poem2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This

And I'm still crying in despair,
Tears pouring down my face,
But it's not like they care,
It's raining again,
And another cycle of pain,
All because I was born a Jew,
But what if that person was you?
It's raining again,
We're forced to go on a long walk,
I hear loud shots in the back,
But I can't see it since I'm too short,
Into a secure room we all arrive,
What would happen next?
I couldn't decide,
A shower, they yell?
We all remove our clothes,
Then what happened, you wonder?
Ask the darkness that engulfed me,
The sun is out,
The pain is gone,
What they did, I know was wrong,
But at least it won't rain again.

They should stop telling me
to change who I am.
"What are you wearing?"
"You look like a boy!"
I want them to stop telling me

"What is wrong with you?"
"You're so stupid!"
PLEASE STOP TELLING ME

A Venomous TongueThere you go, hiding behind those innocent blue eyes.A Venomous Tongue12 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Pretending to be kind while you're speaking your lies.
You put on a charming smile and sweet talk your way into hearts.
But the truth is, you're cold and callous, you've got it down to an art.
You should be ashamed of your treacherous ways, your venomous tongue.
But you think yourself slick and sly, not caring what you've done.
One day, perhaps soon, it will all come crashing down.
Your lethal behavior will bring your soul crashing to the ground.
And all that you've done, and all the hearts that you broke...
Will all be for naught, and your reign will end on the most sour of notes.

He is carcass.
A broken mirror.
A few empty beer bottles.
Tobacco breath. .
There is no light in my eyes.
Where did it go?
Who is to know..
Why did it leave?
Because no one wanted to know. .
There is a hollow rock instead of his heart.
Salt crystals jaggedly poked from it, and burned the seared flesh of his soul.
He didn't cry out.
He didn't mention it.
He just closed his eyes, and let the sea of tears rock him to sleep.
No pain to the outside.
No happiness on the inside.
Let it go..
Just let me go.
"Who are you talking to?"
Euology for No OneDroplets of rain form artificial streams,Euology for No One1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
the nostalgic mist which they form is quite
a fitting setting for a lonesome fugue.
A storm is no place for idle daydreams,
such a melancholy downpour of rain
has the tendency to leave one subdued.
I regained a heart in that dreary squall,
my modest empathy returned to me
in a silence through which few could intrude.
Then there came one so gentle and so small,
a creature of such insignificance
yet one which I simply could not exclude.
Quietly it sprang
into view of my
rain splattered eye lids.
A thought came to me
which jangled my nerves:
How far had you flown?
I brushed it aside with little concern,
I knew that there was no place for it here
and hoped that it might find its way back home.
As far as my humble eyes could discern,
the creature had subtly flittered away
to those winds on which its brothers had flown.
I never expected it to return,
crashing into the cold and hateful flood
and falling down to a watery grave.
Suddenly a fire began to

The inauguration of it all, was purely coincidental
Even now, I'm speechless, but undoubtfully grateful
A heart of untainted gold, and a selfless ambition
I don't deserve to be in association with an altruistic person such as you
Life has been treacherous
Even I was bewildered at the scaling height in which we climbed
Battered soles trudging against the jagged stone
An insuppressible desperation to maintain a steady pace
To say the least, it hasn't been easy
For these scaling mountains' intentions are to ensure one's demise
Yet we keep ascending
You are my best friend
Words are incapable of expressing how thankful I am to have known you
Hearing your laugh brightens my day
Acknowledgement of your happiness subsides the jargon that

Watching your red.
Resting on green as rushing rainbows recolor you.
Perhaps the sun fading to black will put this artwork to bed?
I doubt you ever saw the gold
Or could see anything but white
Recalling how you painted as brushes are cleaned, getting cold
But never as cold as the reckless masterpiece you forged tonight.
Mental Battlefield of the IsolatedIn the encircled hamlet named after FreudMental Battlefield of the Isolated2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The soldiers rest, staring into the void
No communication, they stand alone
Fighting in the plains they call the unknown
Oh where can a comrade find another?
Civilians are refusing to aid
In their cosy houses they’re unafraid
A young partisan tries to help the doomed
There’s no hope for them, they die of their wounds
Oh when will a medic run here for us?
Hostile forces are near, hear their war cry
We must start preparing or we will die
I suppress emotions, my blood runs cold
Darkness chokes the life of stories untold
Oh who will know their truth and mourn for them?
As our faith is fading away from life
The form of a hero seizes his knife
Rallying us all, we charge at darkness
To this day, we fight to search for brightness
Oh together, we will fight to the end.
Stranger within myselfI look through my dead cold eyes. When did I look so dead?Stranger within myself2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My mind lost wonder deep in my conscious. Who was this person I'm staring?
Where was that happy, cheerful person ready for any challenge?
There was no longer that happiness.
The longing for sadness has rain over me.
I'm no longer the person I am before. I stare seeing a stranger of myself.
A voice called my name. I showed a smile that became my mask. I'm nobody just unknown person walking into a cruel fated world called "my home."

I scream through it;
making vodka in my mind the moon shine when I brew it.
It's got a firm grip to it,
I kick through it;
my body is a pistol getting ripped through it.
My walls falling hard, all caved in.
Tryna catch my six but I slipped into sin.
There ain't no other words I could seem to describe;
the walls I built were truth
and the rocks that toppled them were lies.
Cuz I'm an addict, addict alcoholic.
I burned all my bridges and I sunk like a brick.
My damn human nature skull is thick;
and it talks like a ninja super quick.
The language cathartic backfired;
my soul is old God let me retire.
Let me soar up to heaven; join your heavenly choir.
I'm a liar and I'm spiraling to Hell;
either pick me up or leave me, say farewell.

For KashaWhen all around are shaken, despairing hearts within,For Kasha1 hour ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You remain a stoic, sweet homeland, calm,
Counteracting a youthful lunacy, containing innocent sun
O! Friend, with thy steady heart, thy open palm,
Fear not the future, nor the hearts of others,
For the world is not as dark as you fear it be,
And in all hatred the sweetness smothers,
And the love that seems so absentee,
Is waiting for that one bright moment of truth
When all is done and future folly complete
And we remained a honeyed eternal youth
With an entire human race to meet.
So fear not, oh dearest friend, for the dread of passing days
and live forever in a blade of grass, and dance in summers haze.

Powerful love, cuts like a knife
I'm Daddies girl, you're in my heart
Will my new life tear us apart?
It hurts my soul, can't see you down
Dearest Daddy, please don't frown
Precious love, we talk each day
Don't walk away, need you to stay
I was broken, in a cold, dark land
Only Sarah could reach my hand
In this land, there was only night
She led my soul, to a place so bright
Thought forever, I'd be blue
Then came a love, so pure and true
Healed my life, made my heart sing
Sacred love, a beautiful thing
How can I tell you, is there a right time?
Need her love, all of my lifetime
Just can't stop, and I will not stray
Being with her, Bright sunny day
Dearest Daddy, please don't cry
Give your blessing, and see me fly
Don't condemn me to cold, dark night
Let me walk, in gold, warm light...
Deja vuFor everything bad there's something good.Deja vu1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You were the best.
By people I am misunderstood,
they don't understand this feeling in my chest.
Every night I am with you,
and by day I spend remembering it.
Only united by a sky that's blue,
as if we were just one spirit.
Waited for you,
all my life I did.
It all began anew.
This feeling may be.
No, its only you.

I need your embrace after all I've been through.
The space where you used to lay is now so cold
But it's because of the promises I didn't uphold.
A better man I could have been
But I failed each time I marked my skin.
Losing you is my greatest fear
And I just want to have you near.
I know that you could do much better than me
And that things aren't the way you wanted them to be.
So now you'll leave me for good
Any pain but this, I could have withstood.
But with you gone I no longer want to live
After all I've done wrong, you have lost the will to forgive.
You have given me more joy than I've ever known
But here at the end of us, I'll die alone.
Sonnet pour l'oiseauD'une plume ou d'un œuf -Sonnet pour l'oiseau2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Je chercherai encore
Une empreinte - une absence d'hier à aujourd'hui
Car s'il m'étreint toujours le désir est sans bruit
Quand montent dans mon âme accords & désaccords
Sans repos -
Résistance à la lutte acharnée
J'attendrai de trouver le chant qui me libère
Alors j'assumerai mes envolées entières
Sans répit -
Résilience à la chute alarmée
Puisque je suis vivante à l'amour qui m'assaille
Une goulée de miel -
Du bec à mes entrailles
Coule et va inondant corps & cœur crescendo
S'il ne s'endort jamais en mon sein le désir
Qui encage à l'envi les mots de mes délires
Fait son nid de mes ailes et de ma libido

my heart takes flight

a raging fight
My heart holds dear

But my mind
has plans anew
My mind is clear
it’s changed its course
but my heart is screaming
it’s getting hoarse
My mind knows now
that this can’t be
there is no “ever after”
for you and me
My mind is right
this is where we part
it breaks my heart
I’ll be okay
I’ll continue to grow
and maybe someday
my heart will let go

Hair like a raven’s beating wings,
Shadows rising, darkness shimmers,
The bane of all living things.
Perhaps a creature feared by choice,
Perhaps the stuff of nightmares,
But not much is sweeter than his voice,
Not even the holiest of prayers.
Rain falls in gleaming sheets,
Past his marble shelter, ages old,
The one place of safety ‘midst these streets,
The old cathedral, alone, windbitten and cold.
Of misted graveyards and rusted gears,
Came the master of brave men’s fears.

By your negativity.
You’ll never deter me.
I’ll remain encouraged,
Despite your criticism.
Your nasty skepticism…
Won’t ever shake my belief,
In my abilities…
Or those possibilities,
You’d steal from me, like a thief…
If I allowed you to,
Which I refuse to do.

to a sea of people,
I came to the conclusion that
emotions and thoughts
are purely an illusion
created by the human
to give a sense of control.
When really, everything you are
is a buildup
of everything you've seen and felt,
you are a combination
of other combinations
and are not controlled
Rather, it is
that you think
that you are yourself
that the body creates this illusion
and emotion and thought itself
are merely experiences
