Who complain about abortion,
They put some cells before a life,
And chastise a woman for her choices.
They must not understand,
How it feels to be judged,
To be hated or shunned down upon.
Or deprived of love."
But get this straight right now,
Because that’s not at all true
I have a really good feeling,
You don’t know what we go through.
Pro- life isn’t about abortion,
Whether a fetus is alive or not,
It has a much more deeper meaning,
And it would help to give it some thought.
Pro-life fights for those,
Who are alone, depressed or scared
Who think death is the only way,
To get them anywhere.
Prolife fights for those,
Who are beaten, for their orientation
or those who are looked down by the nation.
Pro life fights for those,
Who starve in other countries,
Why do you think Catholic Groups,
Go to feed the poor and hungry?
Prolife fights for those,
Who simply have nothing left,
Who are alone in the world,
And are welcomed by onl
Dear SantaDear Santa can you fix it for meDear Santa1 day 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

Ice cream, pavement
Melting dreams down the grille
Blue eyes crying, a hug from Mom
But still leaving a sense of loss
No kind words can comfort
Nor ease the pain
Last nightLast night I dreamt of you,Last night2 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
though I was wide awake.
A thousand wonderful memories,
once more my heart did break.
You held me in your arms,
I felt your presence near,
as our life played out before me,
once more I shed a tear.
I recalled our precious wedding day
and our joy at the birth of our son.
I recalled our very first rendezvous
and how I knew you´d be the one.
I remembered all the laughter
and your easy loving ways.
I looked into your beautiful face,
"I miss you" is all I say
A million tears have fallen,
in the time that you´ve been gone,
a million more are still to fall
until my life is done.
cos when my life is over
and they say the last amen
I´d never have missed one single day
I´d do it all again.

Little messagesJust when another lonely day, starts to bring me down,Little messages1 month ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I could be out shopping or just strolling around.
I think of you of course, as I always do.
My dearest love, I´m still missing you.
My sadness, it begins to show,
it is no use, the tears just flow.
Then your spirit seems to talk to me,
cos everywhere there´s a message I see.
Messages on book covers, tell me" I should trust in me".
even on some bath salts, says "don´t worry be happy".
"Keep your chin up", "let your angel always be your guide".
It´s then I know you´re still there for me, always by my side.
The tears still flow, they always will
but now I know you are with me still.
It brings me comfort, it picks me up.
I know for sure, I´ll always have your love.

There was once a time,
When nothing else mattered,
Not the future, not the past,
Not the world, beaten and battered.
Our little party of three,
And though I'd never say it,
You were my family.
We strived to escape our "home",
And venture far outside,
But the journey came with a price,
Along with my damned pride.
Because of me, you're gone,
And I can't forgive myself,
But once I'm all done here,
I'll serve my time in Hell.
I'll see you two again someday,
But my time has not come yet,
So till then I'll be down here,
Making choices with no regrets.

and dream that we will be at par.

Not many understand
How truly vital is this time;
I take my pen in hand.
I lock myself inside my brain
And tuck away the key;
And finally I open up
Into a writing spree.
Sunlight rushes in upon
The cobwebs of my soul;
The stale air is swept away
My thoughts can now unroll.
Scattering mosaic words
In frenzies on the page;
My spirit soars in victory
Like swallows from a cage.
The bottled feelings that I hide
Find refuge and release;
This quiet pen-and-paper world
Enfolds my heart in peace.

Scars decorate my body
Evidence of a troubled past
If only I knew back then
How long scars truly last
Needles and syringes
All have touched my skin
If I had known the consequences
I wouldn’t have done it back then
My body craved the numbness
My lips needed to touch the bottle
An addiction so toxic
It turns you hostile
Beaten into submission
My self-worth forever non-existent
If only I knew how to work my voice
If only I kept my distant
I wrapped the lips around the poison
And shoved it in my lungs
And now I know the danger
Of starting a deadly habit so young
Always searching but never finding
What is it I’m looking for
If only I had known
It was right behind the door
Breathing Glass.Breathing Glass.1 month ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Is it odd that I guessed my fate before I could even piece it together?
With my father and his cruel teachings.
My mother and her superiority.
My brother and his anger.
My sister and her detachment.
I've been smiling this whole time..
This whole time!
But that's all I ever did.
Not breathing, not catching a breath.
But now, I understand why I didn't.
For each time I breathed, I breathed glass.
Sharp pointed shards.
Piercing my throat, cutting my tongue, blood gushing from every slash.
Thick crimson lava dripping down to my adam's apple.
Blood flying out with each cough.
Oh-how this pain defines me!
Oh-how I wish it didn't.
And Everything Was BlueAnd everything was blueAnd Everything Was Blue1 month ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
but nothing was sad
How was I supposed to know
it would (almost) be you?
It was just my mind
I just liked your jeans
and your eyes
And then you walked
through the doors
taller than before
It was just my heart
And I just liked your eyes
and your smile
Then I learned your ways:
one hand on your hip, one knee bent
the face of a tired man
and the veins of a kid
There's a roar behind
your tightrope lips
That can disarm, strengthen
a silence, a shyness
a jazz 'n' blues aorta
the definites before
"...kinda", "...maybe", "...sorta"
It was just my head and heart
not knowing what to do
I just loved
being near you
It started with a flash
of teeth to
a tease, a salute,
then everything was blue
StayCan we go back to the good times?Stay3 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Forgive me for all of my past crimes?
Can we just be happy like when you were here?
The joy we had, reuniting after a year.
The time since you went back has been our loves bane.
Every single day apart, I feel your affection wane.
Our hearts were once connected by a frozen ocean.
But the summer has come, and burned away your emotion.
I hate how I can reflect on these past three years.
And discover that I could have prevented all of our tears.
If I could fix it all by traveling through time and space.
I would catch every tear that has ever trailed down your beautiful face.
I would cradle your heart as I sowed it back together.
And I would do all that I could to make you smile forever.
But we live in the real world, not a fairy tale.
And my mission to keep you happy, I did fail.
It's crazy how quickly my halo turned into horns.
My love went from soft and sweet, to a field of thorns.
Only now do I see how my sins have made your heart sway.
But I won't stop

For your happiness to be,
And I mean I'd give up anything
To show you love from me.
I know that it's not money,
Or a 20 karat ring,
But these are my thoughts and words,
And they are important things.
I'll share them with you always
Which is something new to me,
But this is just the best way
To show you love from me.
My thoughts and words are everything,
And I'm sending them to you,
I know it's close to nothing
But they show I do love you.
Silent DesperationNo longer waiting in silent desperationSilent Desperation2 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
In this world of hate and desolation
I feel the darkness when I close my eyes
Filling me with its soothing lies
But yet I still know that one day I will be free
From all the horrors of the world that we see
And as to what that means I do not know
But yet I cannot clear the snow
The heavy snow blankets the skies
It crashes down before my eyes
And when my vision clears at last
I know that I may have moved too fast
The pain I have caused can never be repaid
I saw the path but yet I strayed
Now I see what happens when I try
I fall to my knees to beg but I refuse to lie
I know there is but one person to blame
And now they’re alone, hiding in shame
They tried so desperately to change their fate
But in return they gave too little too late
So many screaming voices in my head
Each in a different way wishing me dead
I don’t know how much more I can take
I fear quite soon that I will break
If there are any gods, or any such beings to pray to

I'll find your body on the ground

I touch your face
so serene, so cold
I will not leave your story untold

The Savage Setting SunI stood upon a growling rock amidst a rabid sea,The Savage Setting Sun1 month ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And looked into the shutting eye that glared right back at me.
And as I stared into the eye, this savage setting sun,
I could not help but shed a tear to see its life was done.
The glint of red upon the waves, it slowly seemed to slip
Behind the gold horizon like a fleeting funeral ship.
And in a feral funeral chant, the ocean seemed to roar;
I faintly heard the pipe of Pan that howled upon the shore.
The wind joined in this symphony; It howled with dancing Pan
And echoed through the hallowed earth and through the hearts of man.
The innocence of savagery, barbaric songs of yore
Like wild Cuhullin cried and then were heard no more.
The glowing eye was finally shut; the ship had finally gone
Far, far away into the deep and silent great beyond.
The waves then ceased their feral chant and Pan his flute’s sweet trill;
The wind then ceased it’s mighty howl, and all the earth was still.
I stood amidst this silence and I beat my heav

If I can
Fix what I broke
But I still will try
To atone for my fault
And maybe someday I will
But for the time being I’m here
I’m waiting in limbo to hear you
Your voice can undo the locks that bind me
But you don’t hold the key that I need
Your key just made the lock tighter
So tight that I can’t breathe now
Then I hear the thought
Maybe I shouldn't
It’s not my place
To breathe air

Don't take it for shyness,

Dreams to be dissected,
This isn't what I planned;
You should've expected-
This is... My final stand.

Of opening my mouth and letting myself live.
The glass was still floating in the air like debris from a wreck to a dead man..
The glass instantly traveled to down my mouth and cut through my throat and tongue.
Scarring, burning, etching..
I made the mistake of coughing.
Letting my soul release the glass deep inside of me.
Ripping and shredding my insides, destroying what was left..
I made the mistake of loving you.
Holding your hand, Kissing your cheek, calling you beautiful..
Trying to force myself to be whole.
Trying to grab on to whatever sanity lay floating around.
And now I'm going to hurt you, by hurting myself.
By finally taking in gulps..

Wishes don’t come true,
Lover’s tears corrode gold lockets,
But I still have you.
Dreams are crushed by fear unending,
Fame is a cruel tease,
But with such a friend, forgiving,
My hopes soar with ease.
Diamonds’ sparkle, bright and beaming,
Dims at close of day,
But our promise, ever gleaming,
Never fades away.
Faithful comrade, if I never
Grip those searing stars,
You will praise my weak endeavor;
Raise my dying heart.

Yet with each word I type, we're drifting farther and farther apart.

A bird encaged while my hatchlings are being hauled away.
A bush being plucked by the handful.
A deer in a gun's sight.

Don't you understand I can feel yours?

Please just stop..
But I am a toddler again.
Using what little I was taught to get my message across.
Barely able to walk.
Barely old enough for you to listen!
Please, just listen.
Please just read the words on your screen.
