Trust In MeWhen you look in the mirror,Trust In Me1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
What do you see?
I'll tell you what I think,
Even if you disagree.
I can see you're hurting;
You want to give up.
There's something inside you,
That wants to tell everyone to shut up.
I can see you want to be left alone,
You're tired of everyone's crap;
They're telling you things
you want to hear,
But somehow you know
it's a trap.
I can see you're afraid
of letting your feelings show,
You confide in people,
But deep down,
You don't want to.
Maybe something happened
a long time ago
and you refuse
to let go.
I can see that you're about to
breakdown and cry,
You're sick of people assuming
You're the bad guy;
You choose to turn a blind eye.
I can see that you want
someone to understand
what you're going through;
You need unconditional love;
Someone who will
stay true to you.
Let me ask you again,
When you look in the mirror,
What do you see?
I'm not asking you to adjust,
But please, just trust...

THE GENTLE BECKONING...The gentle beckoning called to me, into the sweetest of NightsTHE GENTLE BECKONING...2 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
my spirit retreated, over the rainbow bridge I found infinite rest,
dearest beloved, do not dwell on the shadow of my soul's swift flight
or grieve without end, for with you and the love we shared I was blessed.
The hurt you feel at my passing is my only perpetual pain,
I am as whole as Eternity, shiny new again I suffer not,
how I wish you would not seek yourself to blame
for my dying, put aside these crooked thoughts.
The time had come, I could not deny my final Twilight,
please don't dwell on my struggle, my fight for dear breath,
you were with me then and I am with you now, brightly
entwined in your memory, our devoted hearts defying Death.
Nothing can unbind us, for sisters we are, soul mates forever,
though you still weep remember not my last hour's strife,
the cord between us is strong that no parting can sever
and we will one day reunite, remember this and celebrate my life.

Not Easy (30/30)When I was a girlNot Easy (30/30)1 month 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.
Broken InsideI'm broken inside. Not whole, not even half.Broken Inside3 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I smile a fake smile and laugh a fake laugh.
I can't be fixed, just a broken-winged dove.
I'm empty inside, incapable of love.
I'm broken, unmade, and completely undone.

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.
The Hanging ManA scrawled note,The Hanging Man2 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A long-lost hope,
A swaying rope,
Tied around his throat.
He hangs from the ceiling, a long lost pawn,
In this eternal game there's no time to mourn...
An empty drawer,
An open door,
Running from the law,
He hangs from the ceiling, a long lost pawn,
In this eternal game, there's no time to mourn...
A cracked picture frame,
An unfinished board-game,
Forgotten is his name,
Leaving him to rest in pain
He hangs from the ceiling, a long lost pawn,
In this eternal game, there's no time to mourn...
An awakening in peace,
The pain seems to cease,
Yet the memories do not release,
Living on into the future, never even considering to decrease.
He floats into the sky, to a new awakening,
Back to harmony with his creator...
My Dark Castle There is a traffic of thoughts in my mindMy Dark Castle 1 month ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Eyes that roam around the ceiling
Hand on heart, there is a strange beating
At the entrance it is silent while the rooms screech
A hopeless human that wrote down a speech
All had their fingers in their ears and whined
"Tell us your burdens dear child"
They spoke with so much tenderness
But soon they got wary and it turned to bitterness
Loneliness was injected to my heart in large doses
In this dark castle I am the hostess
Where angels hid and demons ran wild
In its tunnels they strode neglecting the frame
Eyes that glared at my sins and wrote down I'm insane
Clueless visitors that left while their echoes remain
You'll find me in one of the rooms, my neck in a chain
Lost in the dark speaking to my pain
Warmth abandoned me and disregarded my name

When hope's at end for good
The victim of a silent theft,
a void where once you stood
When all you've built comes crashing down
to pieces at your feet
When you awake and look around
afraid your gaze will meet
The life you fled from in your dreams
The ghosts of brighter days
Which resurrect as stifled screams
and set your lungs ablaze
It's at this moment when you think
that you have had your share
that you at last have reached the brink
You feel that you're a hopeless case
and see no other way
but give up on the goals you've chased
and unseen slip away
But you and I are pretty much
alike - we share the pain
I understand, I will not judge
for we are not to blame
Our world is not an easy one
and some will snap and fall
and you and I have come undone
we've run against the wall
That Chagrin built to block the way
to happiness and luck
And here we are, and here we stay
together halfway stuck
Between the past and what may come
Breaking Up Our Lives.She told me that we were doomed.Breaking Up Our Lives.2 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Blue lipstick is what she wore that day.
She didn't even like that color.
I used to like that color..
She told me she loved me.
Her hand in mine.
Our hearts slowing and the heat from each disappearing.
I loved our heat.
She told me goodbye.
Her lips clothed by mine.
Her ring being put in my pocket.
She always called it the chain that held our love into her essence.
She let go of me.
My body lifted.
I wanted to hold on.
Just a little longer.
Just a lot longer.
I grabbed her hand.
I couldn't let her sink.
I couldn't let her be gone forever.
I pulled her up to the air above the icy waters.
Her lips were blue.
Her breath was gone.
Our love was only memories.

A Venomous TongueThere you go, hiding behind those innocent blue eyes.A Venomous Tongue3 weeks 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.
FOR THE LOVE OF CADBURYFOR THE LOVE OF CADBURY2 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I wish I could have saved you, my precious gecko girl,
how I tried from Dawn to Dusk-I never gave up
as I worked to keep your life with mine safely curled,
our threads gently entwined, your soul was the honey in my cup.
Others said not to worry, my concern was my heart's too sensitive fault,
but they didn't love you and didn't know the love that gave wing to my faith,
I wouldn't give up on you-but how elusive was the help I sought,
in the end, my love was all I had to give as you became a wraith.
I had put my faith to be with you through a parade of years,
but our Time together was short and she was not our friend,
you were so young when Death came, now my heart is just a smear
weeping for what we lost...why is Time such a fiend?
I shall miss you Cadbury, clad in your chocolate-cream fare,
you were the sweetness my heart craved, a calming balm always there,
I loved you so dearly, now my heart feels heavy with wrenching care,
my precious Cadbury, I'll never forget you and the pure love

WhisperThe end of my silenceWhisper2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Is drawing near
I know that we
Have nothing to fear
The sun will shine
With its glorious light
But look around
It’s still the night
The dark that surrounds
Is but a veil
Making us blind
I chose to see again
And now my eyes are free
I’ll whisper in your ear
What I wish you could see
There’s a world of color
Hiding in the night
The choice must be yours
To reclaim your sight
It’s not easy
I know that to be true
But for the darkness
The only cure is you
My words are soft
But they’ll never fade
If only I could see
The difference they made
I've read the past too many times
But at last I see the silver lining
It was a message to me now
Of what it’s like to be dying
To my past
I owe so much
It opened my eyes
With its subtle touch
And now I stand
Again at the start
But this time
I carry another’s heart
Cannot Control - IsolationAlone with no home,Cannot Control - Isolation5 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I’ve been running for so long
To flee from my pursuers;
The law and all my wrongs.
I cannot return home,
I’ll be seized on the spot.
The feds are looking for me,
My garments are all I’ve got.
Away from civilization
Animals are my company.
I envy their lifestyles;
Structured, purposeful, easy.
They thrive in the wild,
Their homes lie all around.
Yet here I am uncomfortable
With sitting on the ground.
My rations are limited,
To get more I must kill.
I’ve dealt and felt more pain
Than all these creatures will.
I need a residence
Without a question
But my status is bleak,
Is home a bloody option?
I could be running circles
Covering no ground,
Yet I’m anxious to advance;
No clue what could be found.
Right now it is wise
To be concealed and lonely,
I wish solely for control
If only if only.
Away from streets and lights
I remain ever wary.
Despite my need to hide,
This way of life is scary.
Redundant thought cycles
Are driving me insane.

Though quiet I never shut up.
As a writer I feel as if I'm not good enough.
As an eldest sister I could be a better model.
As a daughter I could be there more.
As I am there for my friends.
Though loud I am just another in the back.
And picked last in class.
Though I find lyrics are my life.
To help distract me from everyone's strife.
Or maybe I just read too much into words..
It’s just nice to close my eyes and let the world blur..
Though for a day I'd like to get out there
And voice what I am in a nutshell...
Maybe then I’ll be able to breath fresh air
And just simply be myself as well.
That day will come soon enough.
Once I am no longer burdened with so much stuff.
Maybe once my thoughts are written in stone.
I’ll be happy to call myself my own..
And maybe with a painting or two strung up on the wall..
Then I'll be a d
A Mermaid's TaleAlone, she swims the seven seas.A Mermaid's Tale1 month 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.

I wonder if dawn will come soon
As each day grows ever tougher
It seems I can only suffer
Darkness dominates the hour
And I pray for spirit power
In pain I gaze upon the skies
Longing so much to become wise
Trying to keep my heart alive
To see God above do I strive
What strength would He want to give me
In the face of my destiny?
How can I survive in the black
When honest hope is what I look?
LightDays of loneliness plague my existenceLight3 weeks 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 Love SonnetFor I have long traveled the seven seas;A Love Sonnet1 month 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.
Neglected by the worldWhy is it so hard to accept me?Neglected by the world1 month ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I was born like this, can't you see?
You care so much about 'morality',
but don't you see how you're ruining me?
Every morning I grab my mask,
Done so often it's no longer a task,
It's got cracks on the edges,
I feel it might break,
Just another blow
and all my work goes down the lake
My world is growing dark,
I'm trying to find the light,
But it slips away everytime I grab it with all my might,
Darkness is surrounding me,
The ghouls will soon come out,
I must not give up,
that without a doubt,
Suddenly I spot the light,
Everything now will be alright,
But there you are standing there,
what you did next was all I feared,
You smashed my mask- it's broken,
Leaving me there out in the open,
With a giggle you stole the light,
leaving the ghouls a tasty bite.
ThingsThere is a girl inside of the mirror in the living room.Things2 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She is always shouting and screaming at me. So damn annoying.
But every second she stays in there, a piece of her becomes taciturn.
I really hate that girl. She’s always crying. So pathetic.
It’s kind of funny though. Something drove her mad. That’s why I’m here.
And it's this madness that's making her go away. Which is a very good thing.
For me, of course. So what makes this funny is…I tricked her!
You see there was once this thing named Life. And one day it decided
To hit her. Hard. Repeatedly. Constantly. Painfully. Angrily.
I think it’s because she was way too chummy with Death.
Life likes to monopolize you and have you always crawling back to it.
It never wants you to leave because it's terrified of being alone.
Personally I believe she was inadequate for the world of the living.
She was weak. She didn’t have the backbone to knock Life in the teeth.
She might as well have thrown her
