Dear SantaDear Santa can you fix it for meDear Santa1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To live a day of my life pain free
Where bullies won't rip off my shirt
And, just for once, the bruises don't hurt
Can you please make it that for this one night
My parents get through it without a bad fight
Or that I have an hour without the growing fear
That in the morning I won't be here
Maybe if I am good today
I won't be beaten for being gay
And that I might not have to grieve
Over a friend killed for what they believe
Please don't make it another night on my own
All the rest of this year I have been so alone
Everyone I loved has gone and I'm tired and old
No money for the heating, the house is so cold
Let me find a nice place in which to stay
I'm not fussy; just a nice alley or friendly doorway
Santa what I would give for a crust of fresh bread
Or one night spent safe in a fluffy soft bed
Bring back my daughter, I need her alive
Go tell her killer not to drink and then drive
Tell my mom I love her and give her a hug
Let her know I'm sorry for over

The torture he endures in his brain.
There's a battle in his mind,
leaving him no place to hide,
So slowly he disappears, he fades,
and I'm left with the promises he made.
And now he's in heaven, like a dream,
his mind is quiet, no more silent screams.
But his happiness is tricky, i fear he's wrong,
cause the devils been in his head all along,
what is worse than a personal hell?
A taste of freedom before your eternal jail.
I'll still be there, when it all falls apart,
Picking up the broken pieces of his tired heart.
Does he realize t's a demon of his own creation?
fueled by self-loathing, a lifetime of frustration.
The darkness in him overpowers the light,
and I know that, again, he has lost the fight.
I hang on to my hope, maybe one day he will win,
I pray that he finds the strength to be my hero again.
Be strong, I want to scream, hold onto the light,
but it's useless, I see it's the same old fight.

I was five
when you first told me I needed the exercise
and signed me up
for a sports team
but I doubt you remember.
I was six
when you first weighed me
in front of you,

but I doubt you remember.
I was seven

my weight in pounds
all summer long, in the kitchen
for everyone to see
but I doubt you remember.
I was eight

offering money if
I could go six months
without gaining weight
but I doubt you remember.
I was nine
when you first announced
that we would be dieting
because we all needed
to drop a few pounds
but I doubt you remember.
I was ten

push away my dinner
and say I didn't need to eat
cause I wasn't that hungry
but I doubt you remember.

Our young memories
Now float away
As tears dry empty
When red leaves fall
Will you still look at me?
As my body, now small
Becomes hollow and weak
Though regret clouds
The days we were fools
These eyes that cast down
Will still look at you
I Don't Care AnymoreThe ones that hurt the mostI Don't Care Anymore4 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Are the ones that show the least
How does it feel to win?
When everyone else has lost everything
How’s it feel to shout your hatred?
Telling everyone that they’re loved
I’ll tell you right now, everyone is different
But we all hurt the same
My voice may be silenced
But my words still scream
I may have been raised in the light
But all I know is the night
Hate me if you want
I won’t give what you need
How can you expect sympathy
When all you have is apathy

Let me be your shining sun
an ever glowing light
strings of the heart come undone
watch the fires of my heart ignite.
Let me be your gleaming moon
an ever calming guide
everything will be yours soon
our souls have now been tied.
Let me be your eternal amenity
an embrace of growing passion
all wrapped within inviting serenity
feelings given with no set ration.
Let me become whole.
Never Again.No matter how many breaths I take I just can’t breatheNever Again.1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Even though I’m missing you, you’re not missing me
Vainly cry a thousand tears; they won’t change a thing
Either pull myself together or just pull up my sleeves
Reach for the only friend I have who will never leave
Arguing with emotions I keep locked away within
Giving in as they surge against my fraying nerve
Against my will, against my mind, against my separated skin
I only cut deep enough to feel the scream inside
Never deep enough to bleed, never deep enough to die

But that you would not know.
You're caught up in your merry dance;
A life that's set aglow.
I guess you don't think much of pain
For it does not concern.
You think right now of your own gain
Leave others out to burn.
Perhaps a slap would do you good -
But oh no, not from me
I call back now a future you
O! What you've come to be.
That haggard old man there is you
Mirror! Mirror! Please...
But will your people come here to?
For peace? You've lost your means.
All because of one bad comment -
Think best before you say.
And now my hand I hereby lend
Someday I pray you'll pay.
Silent DreamersStanding in different places,Silent Dreamers2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
From one day unto the next.
We sift through all the faces,
Of each and every person met.
Tracing routes to when we first crashed,
Finding the sources of past pain and joy-
Taking to the questions never asked,
For an answer to life we can't employ.
There's really only one thing to know-
Love is free, so change your demeanor.
Under the pale moon's humble glow,
We are all meant to be silent dreamers.
I Need To GoNo matter how shadedI Need To Go6 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The light may seem
I would not have traded
For another’s dream
This life is mine
And mine alone
I trace the line
Around my clone
They have the time
To feel my pain
Is it a crime
To have something to gain
I pass on my fear
As nothing at all
But what I hold dear
Will bring about my fall
I’m no longer afraid
Of having more to bear
The price I paid
Is secret, I swear
Only but a few
Will ever know
What I've been through
And why I need to go
KindleI had to say goodbye to you todayKindle6 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It's all that I can do, just to keep the tears at bay.
I wish that I could turn back the clock
So that I could feel more than this pain and shock.
I know that I will have to suffer through everyday
My world will become more and more gray.
I won't see you for years
And I will bleed a million tears.
The sun may rise tomorrow, but it won't shine through this pain
I will battle every day not to slice through another vein.
I remember clinging to you so tightly I felt my arms breaking
So scared of being alone, scared of my heart aching.
Even if this is how our story ends, and I feel like I've lost my soul
I will always be happy that I got to play this role.
For all of the bad times there were a thousand good
For once in my life, I had someone who understood.
Maybe growing up means growing apart
But forever I will hold you in my heart.
Replace me if you will
But I will love you still.
Even if you aren't by my side
These feelings will never subside.

I always had a friend a thought away.
I always had magic to cleanse the wounds, inside and out.
I always had the imagination that made my days glow.
Being broken has its peaks.
I was able to hold someone who was distraught, and look like I was firmly in the ground.
I was able to say it was okay, and mean it.
I was able to glue others back together like they were unable to me.
I was able to hand over some of my fragmented pieces.
Being myself has its positives..
and it mainly begins with the sentence,
"I love you."

Harsh words and death threats.
Venom flying out from your mouth, staining my shirt, and burning holes in my pants.
Only damaging me from the outside in, hurting my trust, breaking my pride..
Day after day, your verbal assaults tear down my barriers.
Month after month, I let blue gems cover my pillow.
Year after year, I let someone go.
Second after second, I am falling apart..
Punishers, please take my request!
Slit my wrists and pour lemon in it.
My antidepressants could only heal so much.
So hurry on, kill me.
Before I swallow my pills with a side of bleach.
Before I fade away to nothing but a memory..
Broken WingsIf you'd ever come to tumble,Broken Wings4 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
if your world once crumble,
when you're betrayed by someone,
if one day you feel alone
call my name and I will come,
cause I'll never gonna let you down.
I was banished by my father,
from the kingdom where I was born;
I lost my dear bright horns,
and everything till the last feather.
Now I'm human and doomed to mortality
and death greedily awaits for my dawn,
when in a white shroud I'll drown.
But trough sorrows came liberty,
and I can claim : no strings on me !
I'm the angel of broken wings,
in Heaven I was born and to hell I head;
I'm free to sin like the wild wind
and I help those who'll soon be dead.
Time is short so call my name,
Time is sharp, I'll free my flames.

To honestly say
That I had stopped,
That I was okay.
But the truth is, it's worse,
It's not going away.
The shadows are lurking, even
During the day.
I know I must continue, or
There'll be a price to pay.
I need to get out of here,
I know there must be a way.
But it will stay right behind me
It will always give chase.
And I will continue to fall and fall
Into its dark embrace.
SenselessThe star that shines so very brightSenseless12 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It takes away the darkest night
And when I can look into the light
I will no longer need my sight
When on the gates of hell I pound
It was your words that I found
And when I hear the chasing hound
I do not need to hear the sound
When our hands touch the ceiling
I know our hearts will need no healing
And when the layers at last are peeling
I will know no other feeling
You are the only one that I need
In my heart I hold no greed
My heart would rather bleed
Than be the one to feed
As I leave the gates of hell
I know that I’m under you spell
I am no longer a lifeless shell
I no longer wish for any smell
My senses take flight
Blinded by light
I feel no fright
Gone is the night

He wakes up cheerful,
Another great day.
For argument sake,
We’ll call him Clay.
Clay is a lawyer,
It’s lie or die.
He’s gotten good at both,
As the years go by.
At the age of 35,
And still no girl to marry.
You might say it could be his looks,
But it’s quite the contrary.
See? Every girl he dates,
Is just prey in his eyes.
On the inside, he’s a killer,
On the outside, he’s shy.
He’s a lawyer, of course,
So no one suspects.
The good-hearted attorney,
That swears and protects.
This one’s name is… Vinny,
Last name, Sheller.

Helle Bilder voller Freuden
kommen mir oft schmerzlich vor,
ferner Tage Glückes Zeugen -
und ich stehe still davor.
Plötzlich ist die Zeit gewachsen,
bildet Mauern, Schicht um Schicht,
und mit Mal sind Lebensachsen,
bloß ein Inhalt im Gedicht.
Nicht ein Weg, wie er auch liefe,
führt mich in der Zeit zurück,
ganz egal, wie laut ich riefe,
flüchtig bleibt das alte Glück.
Fluss des Lebens reißt mir alles
irgendwann aus bloßer Hand
und im Augenblick des Falles,
habe ich mein Gut erkannt.
Was mir bleibt ist nur das Wissen,
was ich hatte, das war schön!
Was ich glaube zu vermissen,
kann ich teils im Spiegel seh'n.
Alle Zeit, die schon verflossen,
alles, was mir oftmals fehlt,
habe innigst ich genossen
und das ist, was letztlich zählt.
Skeletons in the ClosetI thought you and ISkeletons in the Closet3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Were above this
We seemed to be beyond
The point of hiding things
But a seemingly perfect relationship
Always has a few skeletons
In the closet
We said we wouldn't do this
That we would tell the truth
But I guess that failed
So where do we go from here?
Now that trust is broken
How do we get past
All the lies that have been spoken?

Fear is everywhere
Crack me till I shatter...
But fear is the destination
I'm bending, I'm not broken
My resolve the latter.
I wish to find solace
I'm trying to find the pieces
Bent and broken
Save the last breath at least
Crimson in my turmoil
Blackened by despair
I'm bent, not broken
You can't take what isn't there
Invisible Mind"You don't seem like the type to have this disease"Invisible Mind5 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Do you think you're make sense saying words like these?
Do the people you meet always fit into neat little types?
Walking around in your little boxes or some other tripe.
I don't even know what you mean by disease either.
It's not like you can catch it, as if it were a fever.
You can't say, "Don't be upset, others have it worse."
That doesn't stop the pain from feeling like a curse.
One that seems to ebb and flow like a wave or a tide.
But it'll always return, from it you cannot hide.
"It's like you're not even trying; it's the same every day"
I explained this enough, I've nothing more to say.
"Don't be so nit-picky, it's just a few words"
Just 'cause you didn't mean it, doesn't mean it didn't hurt.

What else do you need?
I've given you everything.
You've taken it all from me...
Look at me, in this mirror,
Let it reveal this truth.
See what I've done to myself?
All of it was for you.
I never thought I'd want to, but
You have taken over my mind.
So while these habits are still going on,
Here I am, continuing to smile and hide.
I'm hardly a sun trying to shine
Through your dark shadow.
You hold me beneath the ground, so deep,
I've become a flower that refuses to grow.
There's beauty in darkness, but
Even you have taken that away.
But my eyes have adjusted to it all,
So I turn away from the light of day.
So let me return to confinement,
Surrounded by this sadness and rage
And let you throw your sticks and stones,
Letting them strengthen my dark cage.
