[Poetry] The Lament of the Pirate's CoveBy You'reMyPirate'sCove[Poetry] The Lament of the Pirate's Cove1 month ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Hi there, are you here to check on me?
Or is your gaze just passing through?
I'm all alone behind my curtain,
thank goodness I have you.
I’m broken and my ship has sunk,
I no longer bring joy to friends,
And even though my chest is torn,
my heart goes on until the end.
My friends moved on to other things,
more important and more interesting.
I’ll sit here in my Pirate’s Cove
And listen to them sing.
Freddy's only interested if you're of worth to him,
He'll sing and dance during the day,
But in the night not a second glance,
Will he ever cast your way.
Chica tries to come around you,
But only seems to stay for a time,
She tries her best to be a friend,
But leaves you at the chime.
Bonnie's the same, though he tries more,
To talk to you when he comes around,
But he never talks long, and leaves quickly,
No real conversation to be found.
I want attention, I want a friend,
I’ll be yours, I’ll be there.
Just please don’t stop ch
Don't Read MeDidn't you read the title?Don't Read Me1 month ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
I can't make you heal.
So just be on your way,
Are you reading still?
I am a hopeless poem,
With no purpose in life.
Blood is not my ink,
From the wound of life.
So you can leave now,
There is no point to me.
Go on! Scat!
There's nothing to see.
I could be your inspiration,
The very poem that steals,
Your heart away tonight,
And catch you in the feels.
Nope! Not me!
I am worthless by far.
It's time-wasting to read me,
Yet, here you are.
Of course, why would you leave,
When there's so much left to be heard?
But, I'm just a poem saying nothing,
In so many words.
If you aren't leaving, I will,
I am thoroughly annoyed!
But, since you've made it this far,
I hope you enjoyed.

While I was sleeping,
His baggage strewn
In piles, heaping.
When I asked him
How long he meant,
He simply replied
“You should charge me rent”.
Depression moved in
While I was sleeping,
And now, I can tell,
He’s never leaving.

Trans boys aren't importantTrans boys aren't importantTrans boys aren't important1 month ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
I've seen it a lot when scrolling through my dash,
or on the television, and other forms of media,
whether I be listening to the radio, reading an article,
I can't help but seeing this phrase causing hysteria.
And I guess that sometimes, I think I'm seeing things,
or my ears are not working correctly,
and it pains me to go back, and read that post,
or listen to how someone speaks so deviously.
“ “Trans boys aren't important” they don't matter,
or they simply don't need positive reception,
because they aren't as important or worth paying mind to,
nor do they need any representation or attention.
If they try to be noticed, they're only being selfish,
taking a way from the problem at hand,
trans boys are useless, and they're worthless,
this is something,as a whole we must understand.”
I honestly don't know how anyone could go,
living with this toxic sate of mind,
but I've seen it too much from those I considered friends,
CryYou're in pain, are you not?Cry3 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
With your bleeding heart and red rimmed eyes.
You have scars beneath your skin,
buried deep away from sight.
Because it hurts less to smile, when you're dying inside,
than it does to show your broken soul.
Because when someone knows you cry each night,
you reopen the wounds you've been trying to close.
So you bleed, you break, without leaving a clue,
you burn, you scream, where no one can hear.
There's an active volcano inside your heart,
but no one will notice when your smile's so bright.
But are you invincible or are you human?
Are you a soldier or are you immortal?
You're fighting a war inside yourself,
with teeth and claws and an army of one.
You know you can't win with your wilting heart,
but you don't want to lose and let the enemy win.
You need someone to share your tears,
but no one's there when you push them away.
You need some ears to hear your woe,
but it's hard to find behind the laughter.
It's okay to cry when you're dying inside,
let the te
October 5th 2015 (Banshee)Sing with me my childOctober 5th 2015 (Banshee)1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Sing with me of your regret
Sing with me of death
For your time comes now my dear
On wings of sable and wind
Take my hand my child
Take my hand for I will be there
Take my hand, no tears
You cannot change your nature
Nor can you escape your fate
I am here now,
But you are alone in the end

Łez powstrzyma srebrny strumień,
Ale w sercu zrozpaczonym
Bólu powstrzymać nie umie.
Odór, ohyda, odraza,
Świat zatruły mój wewnętrzny,
Ciemność we wszystkich obrazach
I nic jej już nie zwycięży.
Ode to THQWhen I was young, THQ,Ode to THQ2 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
I turned my head to laugh at you
Your games were rushed and ill conceived,
And stank of selling out, it seemed
But now you rap upon death's door,
And stare into a gaping maw
(that gifted folks who fight this war)
Have haply tripped into before
Suddenly my laughter ceases
Schadenfreude falls to pieces
In retrospect, you were -it seems-
Creator of some happy dreams
And now I find myself nostalgic,
For their brand of muddled magic
NO! says I. This isn't right!
Here I stand and here I fight!
Sally forth, you spoiled tarts,
And open up your steely hearts,
That though their tenure fits and starts,
They are no Electronic Arts
There may be time before they're through,
With luck they'll shine before it's true
No one needs you,
Yet I need to,
Doff my cap to THQ.

and hope to smile so he can’t see
the painful feelings you carry
so that his soul does not worry.
Pray, pray, pray so he can feel
the warm embrace of love so real
that follows him through his passing
so he peacefully goes with our blessing.
Cry, cry, cry because we know
we mourn through love on Earth below
and all our tears are shed to keep
his legacy in his wake-less sleep.
Live, live, live through memories

can't wait to escape
this tight place

my favorite trip
is when I fly
like this morning
patchwork farms foothills
horses running in surprise
I marry the sky
when I have wings
Darling I know that someday you'll be sleeping, darlingDarling 2 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
As you're dreaming off the pain
I hope you see me in the distance, stumbling
As I'm breathing out your name
I hope I can see you on the balcony
Standing silent as it rains
Let not the moonlight mock me,
For I should go insane
I know that someday you'll be wishing, darling
To the stars and the moon that wanes
But by that time, it shall be much too late
And you'd be left to scream in vain
And so, I hope you still feel my kiss in the snow
As I numb any frostbite that remains
I hope you can wash away, in the river
All those empty, lost tear stains
And I know that someday you'll be happy, darling
And I guess I should not complain
Because even if my heart is still broken,
Your heart will always beat the same
Out in the RainNowhere to go, nowhere to runOut in the Rain3 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Here I am in the cold rain
Deprived of heat from my sun
Walking up and down this dark lane
I wonder how long it will take
Before the frost consumes me
Puts me to sleep never to wake
In this frozen land above bitter sea
I can’t remember the feeling
Of being warm inside
Seems there’s no more healing
Left for me, just suicide
Would I plunge the dagger into my chest?
Leap from bridge to the rocks below?
Find some peace and a final rest?
It certainly seems the only way to go
There is no family for the wastrel
We are the forgotten dregs
Of whom no one shall ever tell
Less than splints and pegs
But watch me soldier on
Broken vessel left to wander
Dead inside, a mask upon
Shattered face, call me yonder
No more of this searching
The journey wears me thin
All around vultures are perching
Waiting for me to crumble under the din
Pick me clean, for I can’t feel
My nerve endings all shorted out
Time never stopsThe woman in the mirror smilesTime never stops3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
with her tired empty eyes.
Deep sadness now behind that smile
she wears as her disguise.
Without you, her time ticks slowly by,
her minutes turn to years.
Life goes on relentlessly
like her drip, drip, drip of tears.
Another breaking dawn without you
it breaks her lonely heart.
Another day alone without you,
another day apart.
How could she just live on without you,
how could she just go on,
each passing day she longs to see you
each waking minute gone.
Her life, it will go on without you,
if she wants it to or not,
cos just like her endless love for you
the time will never stop.
When I'm MissingWhen we met on the bridge,When I'm Missing1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
It was the rarest of love at first sight.
As soon as our eyes had met,
We knew no one could be more right.
Things started off well,
We got along like the best of friends.
One year after the other,
We thought our love would never end.
Of course we were wrong,
Good things always have to end badly.
Although our love was strong in the beginning,
It was impossible to forever stay that happy.
I felt as if I was the only one,
Still trying to keep what passion we once had.
You resorted to leaving the house for drinking,
When our problems got really bad.
One day, once upon a time,
You caught me when I had fallen for you.
Now I feel like I'm slipping from your grasp,
And depression now catches me from the spot you used to.
I sob at night before I sleep,
Wishing things were what they used to be.
I miss our love but now it's dead and gone,
It's like now you don't even care about me.
I visit the bridge where we first met,
And think about our happier
I Greet The Morning SunA broken heart is slow, does take its timeI Greet The Morning Sun1 month ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
to heal - becoming going at best.
Incapable of feeling moods sublime,
a useless weight inside my chest
It beats just out of habit, not because
there's reason there for which to beat.
It beats and beats and beats without a pause
so as to not concede defeat.
But something's changed. A rainbow just today
I saw and marvelled at the morn
in all its beauty. Silently I strayed
and hailed the sun, of darkness born.
So sneaking up on me awareness came
and suddenly I felt and knew
(what - fraudulently - long had been my claim):
that finally, I'm over you.
Kiss My CoffinYou implore me to quit.Kiss My Coffin2 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
I can't breathe.
Charcoal-black ink pond sinking me to my knees.
Save me, Save me!
Black tar being tasted on a dried tongue.
Can't anybody hear me yelling?!
Thick, heavy oil sliding down my throat, and slicking my lungs with black.
Yelling, screeching, tearing my throat with each harsh HELP after HELP!
Save me, GOD save me!
Flailing my hands in the onyx water, I pushed my head up into the acrid air and retched the dark liquid.
My hands are above my sunken head.
The ocean of dusk was taking me.
I was no longer.
I am now another tale of lament.
Kiss my coffin.
Since you would never kiss me while I was alive.
September EquinoxA lazy sun and shifting of the lightSeptember Equinox3 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
clinging still to halcyon summer days.
Memories in a box, now out of sight,
to bury in the Autumn’s coming haze.
Not so sharp and bright delineation
of trees and grass and flowers multi-hued
but soft-focus are those things of God’s creation
as the Fall begins its winding way anew.
Creatures gather in last whispers of a promise
gently fading in the sunset red and gold.
Vibrant lives are touched by what they will miss,
and feeling on the brink of something old.
For Autumn in its sage and burnished glory
retells its wisdom time and time again.
And with colors on the trees repeats its story
even as the leaves bend to the rain.
Even as the grass begins to bronze.
Even as dusk shades the summer’s flame.
Even as bare branches are the bones
of the Winter at end of Autumn’s reign.
A Single NoteInspiration surrounds usA Single Note1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
It’s everywhere we look
It flows through a song
And lives in a book
You have to lose yourself
To find what you’re looking for
Learn to create the key
That opens opportunity’s door
A single note
Held a second too long
Ruins the moment
But completes the song

And as the night gets colder,
You have my heart in your hand—
But I’ll never understand
Why you couldn’t bear to say,
“Please hold mine.”
Today, I write this for you,
A man that I wish I knew
Beyond the small screen I glance
At—and if I had the chance,
I would hold you close and say,
“You’re not fine.”
Tomorrow, we step closer
Towards the awesome composer
Who has blessed eternal night
With music that gives us light—
But we all know that it’s you,
And as you rise, we will, too.
The Creationist Look at her nowThe Creationist1 month ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
In her endless strife
She’s already five
And in the time of her life
Though I feel the deep weight
Of the truth I unbend
You should not get accustomed
To peace without end
But look at her now
She’s just turning ten
Her life is still going
It has yet to end
Her portrait still vibrant
The paint yet to peel
But be warned and be cautious
Of the pain you will feel
But she’s gained some new friends
And they’ve had so much fun
Her first year of high school
Has almost begun
The flower now blooming
And the pedals unfold
But you cannot evade
When blood becomes cold
But look at that gown
And she’s just bought her first car
You were wrong when you said
She’d not reach this far
I never claimed now
Would be the length of her thread
But the cutting comes closer
And the fabric, soon dead
She was just twenty five
Now an angel on asphalt
How could you let this happen?
This is all your fault
As much pain as i

AscensionAlabaster wings, that flutter into flight.Ascension1 month ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Beaming in the darkness of this never-ending night.
Ridding me of pressure that has settled in my bones.
It’s time for my escape; as I head for the unknown.
To fill this empty void, that I’ve carried far too long.
Gliding in and out of clouds as I go along.
I soar across the sky; wind pushing through my hair.
Looking down below, with not a single care.
This feeling that I’m feeling; it’s rushing through my veins.
So profound it’s stripping me of metaphoric chains.
The feeling is called freedom; the word prickles at my skin.
It feels so euphoric that I hope it never ends.
I flap my wings with vigor; faster out of sight.
Deep into the atmosphere; further from this fight.
So higher, higher; up I go, I’m soaking in this dream.
So far up; I’m at the edge of this universe’s seam.
Pushing at the distance; from all that could go wrong.
I need to keep together and continue to stay strong.
As I keep ascend
