So much to see, so little gained
We all are desperate and doomed
To want much more than we consume
And every single ad we see
Is wall of Hades for you and me.
My Annoying LoverThere lived a girl who sang my name,My Annoying Lover3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
as if the name came out from fame,
When will you stop?! I cry,
She just laughed at my lie.
I wished I never told that dame
Now my love was as good as lame..
InsanityIt always starts out the corner of your eyeInsanity8 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
a shadow, an animal, a smile so wry
but it will grow to something more
something to make you check behind doors
a feeling that makes you worry away
one that makes you question your say
and then you'll start to imagine them near
without eyes and mouths but still with those sneers
you'll start to imagine them breaking your neck
yet you convince yourself you've nothing to fret
then in your head a voice so clear
until it's all you're able to hear
and that is when you'll start to worry
that you belong in rooms as white as flurries
that you'll be given a jacket to match
to wear until they can fashion your patch.
But those with insanity I have advice to show
just sit back and let the disease grow
because things that can grow don't wander places they shouldn't go
Pretend PotentateWho are you to assess me,Pretend Potentate3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Or my acceptability?
Why don't you look me in the eye?
You're not a god up in the sky?
You know nothing of my life...
Yet you seek to plunge your knife.
Go ahead and give your best...
I've passed many brutal tests.
I'm still here and standing tall.
You'll never make me feel small.
I always triumph in the end.
I'm adept at mind games, friend.
I never break...I always bend.
Can your small mind comprehend?
Your minor insults hold no weight.
You're a pretend potentate!

Cold and brokenThe cold wind blowsCold and broken5 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I'm frozen to the bones
But you're nowhere to be seen
My hands are cold
My legs tremble
I can't remember any
They're all gone away
Into the dark
The sky has turned grey
The birds fled
For the white winter to come
And I stand alone
I don't know where I am
I wonder why
The thunder precipitates
I will have to run away
But everywhere is nowhere
And you are gone
The place I saved for you
In my heart
DistanceI wish you were here with me…Distance7 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Why must you be so far away?
If you were here would you kiss me?
Or do you just lie day after day?
I want to hold your hand.
I want to kiss your cheek.
Is that too much of a demand?
Or are kisses for the weak?
I sometimes wish I didn’t love you.
I sometimes wish I didn’t care.
But I cant stop even if I wanted to.
I cant imagine life without you there.
It feels as if only the sky connects us.
But it also keeps us apart.
I cant love you but I must.
I will even if it breaks my heart.
