CandleWinter heart an ember, dark and ashenCandle2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Flint remembers steel and spark of passion
Romance astray, outlander to this place
But answers blaze in candor on your face
A castaway on sands of lost pursuit
A past of clay in hands now resolute
Receiving desolation, you wrought joy
Belief and exultation unalloyed
My wayward hope returning from afar
Desire burning, yearning for your star
My Eros, rising with the early sun
Anteros’ prize, our lonely vigil done —
Embrace with grace the waiting winter brings
Enkindling the flame of endless springs

They'd be Better off Burning...The gears of my mind are turning...They'd be Better off Burning...2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
But in the end, they'd be better off burning.
They're in a real jam,
But really it's just the way I am:
He wouldn't have it any other way,
Especially so close to *that* day...
The irons are still not cool...
Cause I have more of them than just school.
The list of plans and schemes,
Let's just say that it could fill up reams:
Entire volumes of things that I've thought,
None of which can or should ever be wrought...
The melody keeps returning...
Forcing me to see the terrible kerning.
Noticing all of the defects in the structure,
Questioning whether I won't just rupture:
Every moment my sanity falls apart,
There one moment, then gone like a dart...
Anyway, I'm doomed to fail...
My own mind is my jail.
I wonder if I'm losing my edge,
A bet that I'd rather hedge:
The fools continue to try to understand my actions, through "discerning,"
They'd be better off burning...
Elder's Night LightHere in a shop of light and dream,Elder's Night Light3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Was an elderly man, grand and esteem.
For he construct in the darkest of night,
And open the eyes with his colorful light.
Topaz-like sun, pale diamond shine,
A beacon to all they dwell in resign.
But the elder was not in comfort of sleep,
As nightmare would claim, the horrible deep.
In awake his mind would dare not rest,
A terrible plague can inflict the best.
He squandered and pondered on how to beat,
This unbearable dream of twisted feat.
But nothing would ease his fragile soul,
Not even the light, he made, succeed his goal.
Forever be doom from this restless wake,
Before the demise of his mental brake.
Yet from the corner, a spark would appear,
A dwindling glow that's small without fear.
And here, he gaze, startle in advance,
Of a peculiar mouse with an eerie trance.
Without such words his mind turn blank,
The elder collapse and sleep to be frank.
And from of dawn, the nightmares were gone,
But the mouse as well, from that day, and on.
UntitledSomething will always be thereUntitled3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Unless you are left
Inside the doubt of your mind
Carelessly walking the edge
Inside the madness of society
Dealing with problems unkown
Erroneous is life.

That we'd love long as we had breath
But the truth has proved more disheartening:
Tis our parting that has been my death.
HimmelblauKannst du fliegen?Himmelblau1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Kannst du fliehen?
wie der Wind
Ich kann fliegen
die an das Licht gebunden sind.
Kannst du schweben?
Kannst du sehen?
wie sie flieh´n
Ich kann schweben
die nach meines süßen Blutes schrie´n.
Kannst du fühlen?
Kannst du fassen?
wie sie leiden
Ich kann fühlen
wie mein Hunger
sich an ihren Schmerzen stillt.
Liebes Kind wir sind alle Menschen
auf der Suche nach etwas Glück
Auch wenn nur ein kleines Stück
Regentropfen fallen herab auf dich
Siehst du den Himmel?
Er weint für mich!

like very fast cars
fine Cuban cigars
never could get enough
did I mention sex
had it all
gave it to my ex
joined the circus
chased the thunder
toured the world
had a ranch down under
all of this to say that
living for Love
is better than
all of the above
The EntertainerThe entertainer.The Entertainer2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
There's not one occupation insaner
In one moment out the next
Attention is fickle, leaves you perplexed.
You grow up broken, hollow, not whole.
Your surroundings are something you can't control.
You never fit in just quite right
Despite everything you do in spite.
You might not even know it, but inside you're shattered
Only later you realize it mattered.
Maybe you're beaten or maybe you're teased
But then one day, you find a way to please.
You get them to giggle or smile or laugh
And all of a sudden you're better by half.
You keep on this face, and you wear it around
And now taking place is something profound.
You've let their reactions determine your worth.
Dependent on that sacred drug: others mirth.
You wake up every morning, up for the task.
You rush out the door and put on the mask.
It's a reaction, it's something, not real love or care.
But they're giving you SOMETHING that til now has been rare.
You're quickly conditioned, you build up your clown.
The guy that's
Weapon of LoveI dreamed of your voiceWeapon of Love2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
It was deep, soft, and warm
Your kiss, I imagine the same
Why the hell are you still gone?
You knew we'd be heaven together
Our love and passion, immense as the Universe
And you ran
Leaving me with an empty fantasy
For the rest of my days
How I HATE to remember
All the wonderful words you used to say
Love made a weapon
Memories that pierce my heart
In the most painful way
UntitledI awokeUntitled2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
To my death.
The serpent coiled
Around my neck
And would not
And razor picnicked
In my throat.
They guzzled blood
As the sun
would return again
when least expected.
All I wanted~Although there were lies I never told,All I wanted~2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
In the silence I still stood.
All I wanted was the honesty you sold,
But all that's left are faded dreams of our childhood.
There may be a day,
In the silence which I stand,
Where all I wanted was to let the honesty stay,
But all that's left is the dying dreams in my hand.`
Evolution Of A CrisisRight, left, upside downEvolution Of A Crisis4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Running walking and flying
I'm making myself drown
Trying too hard on everything
My train of thoughts goes so fast
It has completely gone off track
I don't remember how felt the past
I need to slow down before I crack
Breathing in and breathing out
Why is this simple task so hard
Racing heart, quivering mouth
I'm writing so I won't fall apart
Closing my eyes shut, but not tight
Welcoming the dark, accepting it
Without a care for the lack of light
Just falling down in a comfortable pit
Letting my tears run down freely
Ignoring the beats of my heart
Disconnecting, finally being free
My soul is flying and making art
WhirlwindYou are probably going to send me in a whirlwind,Whirlwind1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
use me for mental stimulation then discard me.
Yet I am intrigued and drawn into your darkness,
I feel I may get lost in your deep minded theories.
You will be satisfied with my soft spoken philosophy,
dark sense of life and undiscovered mysterious mind.
But in all of this deepened chaos,
we can only hope for the night to fall.

Orange flames dance at my mommy so dear
Yellow dress in the wind, from my home I must flee
Green carpet on my toes, as I'm caressed by the trees
Blue skies above, devoid of death and dismay
Indigo heavens bleed, as night shrouds the day
Violet heart now knows nothing but hate, sweet little girl now a victim of fate

A Rose on Valentine's dayFor you on your birthday,A Rose on Valentine's day1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
I bought a diamond ring.
I asked you to be my bride,
To you, my heart did sing.
We wed a year ago today,
And to you I pledged my life.
With the placing of the rings,
We left as man and wife.
A love of truer nature,
Never could come true.
Even with my knowing this,
I can't hold onto you.
I went into a flower shop,
And baught a rose of red.
I tried to live in happiness,
But soon was filled with dread.
I thought about the day gone by,
As fatigue onto me crept.
I laid the rose upon your grave,
Knelt, and softly wept.
BondsTwo brothers, the best of friends,Bonds1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Like night and day they contrast.
Two hearts but one soul
One vow to make their friendship last.
Big brother. Comforter. Guardian
Then, a boy- is now a man.
Shadowed moon and shining sun,
Through test of time, their friendship stands.
But night comes cloaked with secret
Shadows hide the truth from sight.
Promises kept are laced with poison.
Left unseen, one brother's plight.
Lungs inhale the deadly toxins
That symbolize the world they're in.
Each folly of man consumed for innocent eyes.
Piece by piece, night's stained in sin.
Poison gulped to drown the sorrows.
Bottled tears of two adrift.
Waves clash, broad back lashed
Collected pain his spirits lift.
Worry not, little brother, sweet sun.
Your wall will stand for all your days.
Keeping hidden cracks and wear
And seeking comfort in your rays.
