Today and all the days to come
I am clay between your fingers
AnxietyMy eyelids are heavy, laden with sadness.Anxiety6 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I miss my dear friends, God knows where they are.
My jaw is tired, and sore from clenching.
Anxious my mind has taken me far.
My bones cry out like stones to God.
The weight they carry too much to bear.
My soul has stopped it's melody,
...and no one really cares.
Not Easy (30/30)When I was a girlNot Easy (30/30)1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I thought poems were easy
Slap down some adjectives, twist them to rhyme
Though sometimes I ended up
Or forcing an ending... some... times...
These seedlings of words
(Oo, seedling's a good one)
Were carefully guarded and hidden away
Never expecting that same
Would make them a hobby some... day
Fear in her eyes.
Beneath surface lies
I am yet a girl
And words are not easy
To hammer and sharpen and train
But now I am willing
To give them my all
In return, they are keeping me sane.
A Venomous TongueThere you go, hiding behind those innocent blue eyes.A Venomous Tongue2 days 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.

Blue Heart.I really didn't think hearts could get sick.Blue Heart.1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Blue strings were wrapping around your heart, and choked it.
Ice-colored spheres will clogging up your throat, and sapphire jewels fell from your eyes.
I didn't understand, how you could you show so much pain when you were always smiling?
I couldn't understand that I never could see it.
It hurt that you never thought about showing it.
But then again I never showed you my black heart.
I never showed you the dark recesses that always hung deep inside of me.
I never showed you how many scars were along my thigh.
I never showed you how many hearts didn't attach to mine.
I never allowed for you to be there when I wanted to be happy.
Yet you are letting me see inside.
Oh, I'll cleanse your blue heart.
I'll give you another one.
I'll give you another reason to live.
I'll give you the paper that says your purpose.
Please don't worry anymore.
Your heart could get sick.
I don't need that again.

It's raining againIt's raining again,It's raining again4 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.

LightDays of loneliness plague my existenceLight10 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As I try my hardest to survive this distance.
The pain and emptiness inside of me go on and on
But they say that it's always darkest before the dawn.
I do my best to stay strong, and try not to fall
But without you in my world, I feel so small.
I feel as though I can't accomplish anything on my own
I'm trapped in darkness, and you are the only light I've ever known.
You found me, and that light radiated around my heart
I was always empty before, but you were my missing part.
The best days of my life were the ones where you were with me
My heart was locked, but your love was the key.
Those days never cease to run through my mind
How I was then, and how I could ever have become so blind.
But I know that it's because I can't be myself without you
Because when you left my heart broke in two.
When I'm alone everything feels wrong
By your side is where I belong.
So I hold on to life until I can see that day
When you come back home, and forever in my arm
A Mermaid's TaleAlone, she swims the seven seas.A Mermaid's Tale6 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Traveling through the world unseen.
Sometimes, someone, a glimpse might catch.
Out of the corner of their eyes perchance?
A swish of tail fins disappearing into the sea.
Or a long, lithe body passes by suddenly?
No one ever can be sure of what was there.
A fish's body with long, blonde hair?
Some call her nymph, others a siren.
Immortal perhaps, or on the edge of extinction, dying.
Her life began, when her world came to a crashing end.
Atlantis rising where great Thera would descend.
Her, like the rest, would fall victim to the sea.
But instead of death, they found immortality.
Changing, morphing, evolving into something new.
Mermaids and Mermen, all tried and true.
A second chance they all were given.
The world thought them dead, but instead only hidden.
Their pride and vanity were their undoing.
Now they exist in secret, myths and legends ensuing.
A Love SonnetFor I have long traveled the seven seas;A Love Sonnet1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Looking and searching for a love so fair;
Wandering, wondering, where you might be;
My heart wonders how much more I can bare.
For I have seen love in many a form;
Yet never have I been lucky to join;
I have seen love die and love be reborn;
And that love was worth more than any coin.
I long to be loved til the end of time;
To trust in one so completely and true;
To feel the touch of true love so sublime;
A love so complete, time cannot undo.
And when true love's kiss finally I find;
I swear to him, myself will forever bind.
Little ManLittle ManLittle Man1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The little man sat in his home alone
Many many colors on the wall
Liquids of sort filled in his cone
So many people have taken a fall
He cries and then laughs
Oh how sad he must be
Go little man, take a bath
And the truth you shall not see
I will always be by your side
Keep you away from the bend
Even though you may have lied
I will always stay your friend
The world has turned a deep grey
The sun has less of a yellow tone
As sad as a rainy day
Little man you are alone

to hear the sounds of the soul's beacon
Only to see the young and old
were the only ones not taken
Holding out my arms so wide
I could feel the rush around me
Emotions twist and burn inside
knowing nothing of what I will see
My heart races while I stumble
Your my hero in the darkness
taking me close we both tumble
Nothing can contain my sadness
In the end all is forgiven
You saved me before I risen
Mirror.Pull yourself together,Mirror.4 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
just stop telling lies,
I thought that you'd be honest,
but it seems I've got "blind eyes."
Your brain, the one anger has stolen,
the stories it has spoken,
just leave my heart in an unchangeable, non-negotiable,
I doubt that you'd cry over me.
I doubt you'd even try.
I know the words you spatter
are a bad case of "tongue-tie."
You say you are a bad child
and make it look like it's my fault.
How could you, knowing me, not think I'd make
a judgement by default!?
And yet you are still upset
because of one that's in your home?
Maybe some of your problems aren't his,
but your own.
Maybe if you spend some time,
looking in a mirror,
maybe the brain you say is so dumb,
will see a little clearer.

so you put up your defense. Guarded,and protected
you stand; refusing to hold anyone's hand. Whether
it be an act of kindness, or pity means no difference
in the end.So you build walls and rooms around, and
hide so you won't be found. You wish to never feel that
way again. So tired of living this way, as you go
through another day; you wish it would all just go away.
A Moonlit PoemI greet the rising moon as the sun slips into it's slumber.A Moonlit Poem1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
This great and glowing goddess of night, completely unencumbered.
She gives me inspiration when I'm in doubt.
With her necklace of stars, too numerous to count.
Her ethereal beauty shines down with a celestial glimmer,
whether her figure be full or just a tiny sliver.
Her grace, her light, and all she imbues.
This alluring sphere, my midnight muse.

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...
Drowning The AshesI try to drown the memory of you in the ashes of my flame.Drowning The Ashes1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Too bad I don't know how to swim and out goes the fire when it touches the rain.
I'll feed the jewelry some blood from the Red Sea,
In hopes that my memories will fall victim to the blade of the guillotine.
If not, I shall extinguish these scenes from my mind with a purple hue.
Maybe then I could trade my mistakes for some sleep and finally learn how to forget you.
Euology for No OneDroplets of rain form artificial streams,Euology for No One2 days 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

No matter how much it hurts,
No matter how strong my urge to come to you,
No matter how much I think you might need me now,
I will wait,
Because you need some time.
No matter how 'stupid',
No matter how alone you feel,
No matter how useless it might seem to ask me,
No matter how much bother you may think you're being,
I am here,
Because I love you dearly.
I will be waiting for the moment you need me,
Until the moment you need me,
And forever after.
