A Mournful CreatureA field of evenly-spaced stones,A Mournful Creature1 hour ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Engraved with the names of the fallen,
Each resting upon its bones;
Shrouded in a layer of pollen.
A freshly dug hole,
Crowded by people in black.
One poor soul,
Ended by a heart attack.
A single coffin,
Lowered into the ground,
Soon to be forgotten,
With no-one around.
A barrage of flowers,
Covering the grave,
For hours and hours,
With the aroma they gave.
A lonesome critter,
Following the scent,
Flew with a flitter,
Just like it was meant.
A slight breeze in the sky,
Brings the mournful butterfly.

‘Cause you don’t really care.
Don’t tell me that it’ll come together,
‘Cause life isn’t fair.
Don’t tell me to jump,
‘Cause I just might.
Don’t tell me that it’s just a dream,
When I stay up all night.
Don’t tell me to leave,
‘Cause I just might go.
Don’t tell me to hush,
‘Cause I won’t you know.
Don’t tell me that you hate me,
‘Cause what good would that do?
Don’t tell me that I’m fat or ugly.
‘Cause I’ll believe you .
Don’t tell me hurtful things,
‘Cause those wounds won’t heal.
But don’t sugarcoat lies,
‘Cause then it’s not real.
Don’t tell me what I need to do,
‘Cause you don’t have that right.
Don’t tell me not to bark,
‘Cause then I could bite.

Burning ChoiceLeaping over past the fireBurning Choice3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
He tries to save his heart’s desire
But there she lies, just out of reach
To get to her, he must see…
Sacrifice himself for her—
One must be lost to save the other
The choice is obvious, but there he still stands
Torn at the thought—only one can stand
He knows he should be the one to be lost
But to the one he loves the most—
The one that’s just lying in danger of burning in smoke—
To her he’ll bring sorrow beyond no words
He is torn—
He knows what is right—
But to make the right choice
To decide not to fight…
He closes his eyes—
Makes a decision—
Takes a deep breath
And plunges into the fiery prison
He’s made his choice…he will burn
But still try to save both their lives—
For that he’ll yearn…and somehow find a way
But sadly he will learn
Only one can return
Winter in the OfficeI lay my shaking body and pounding heartWinter in the Office3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Over many a sheet touched by my pen
All which I found lacking
Narcissistic or nerve racking
And I thought I'd never pour it out again.
My mind has became so heavily occupied
By this constant hustle and hysteria
With no brush broad enough
To vaguely state all that is tough
For me or any given subject, general area.
So scared of prying eyes to see when I am ready,
My fingers shake so frantic that my hand won't keep steady.
I've never wrote such raw things as meat.
Daniel, bodies are something you greet
Minds are things you pry.
When it is all over, cast the die.
You'll sleep now with every thing you dream.

It was all lies anyway
You chose to do it
For your family and friends
To make them happy
Now you’ve got to make amends
You say that you’re sorry
You try to make sense
But all they think of
Is your happiness lost
It flourished in your lies
In your trickery and deceit
But now that the truth is out
You suddenly feel empty
TrappedGoing with the flowTrapped3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Even though you’re confused
Showing untrue feelings
Now you’ve lit the fuse
Pressing further on
In this web of lies that you’re starting to despise
But you keep on going
Going further still
Just to please your family and friends
It’s against your will
False rumors that were spread
Unknown behind your back
A misheard word
Now you’re stuck
And you feel you can’t go back…
Lost to YouDarkness is all aroundLost to You3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I feel as if I’m underground
I’m hidden away
No one else is here
Except for my captor who brought me here
Against my will
I was stolen away
In the middle of the night
No one, except you, hear my plight
Now you are searching
Searching for me
But I am lost, it seems
Except for the key
The key to the puzzle
The puzzle to find me
You could give up
You could abandon your cause
But if you did that
You would leave me
Leave me without hope
So you keep on searching
Hoping that I’ll be found
And now you are so close
So close to solving the puzzle
So don’t give up
And never fear
For when you finally find me
There will be tears
Tears of relief, of joy, of pain
That we’re finally back together
Back in each other’s arms
And now that we’re together
You will never let go
Hidden LoveYou try not to show itHidden Love3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You seem not to care
But deep inside
There’s this passion
That you didn’t know was there
Hidden deep inside
Kept to a simmer
Until the day
Your unknown love
Is suddenly in great danger
Now the feeling’s bubbling up
A little at a time
Until the heat burns your heart
There isn’t much time
Push through the worries
Fight through the fear
Save the one you love the most
Or tragedy is near…
Long RoadHow long does this road go?Long Road3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I can’t see the end
I’m all alone
I’m going on and on
All by myself
No one to help me
How far can I go
Without breaking down
I can’t do this on my own
I’m gonna give up

Forget you ever felt them and do what’s right
For if you don’t
The truth is clear
No one will ever want you near
Pushing you away
Pulling down the shade
Leaving you in the dark
Have a change of heart
Don’t nurse those feelings
Drive them away
Ask them for forgiveness
And hope they’ll bring you back
If they don’t accept you
If they’re still unsure
Give them time to realize
That you’ve come back to the light
You’ve realized your wrongs
You’re singing a new song
You’re different now
You’ve turned around
I’ve told you now, how to come back to the light
So heed my words and stay in the light
But for those who choose to stay in the dark
And refuse to do the right way
Shattered and broken
They will stay
Twisted with spite and cloaked with hate
Forever in the deep end
They choose to stay
Dragging others down
Blocking out the light
Draining you of hope and will
They want to conquer all

Sharp of teeth.
Why in the world,
Is it your love I seek?
Icy green eyes,
With more salt than sweet.
Do you think it's because,
Just the thought itself is an amazing feat?
Burning acid words,
They do not take me by suprise.
For you are the only one in the world,
That will ever be my delicate demise.

un-natural euphoria where just normal should.
Missing the rush, the running around,
the making up, the dancing to sound.
What's going on, it's like a need,
only takes one to plant the seed.
And whoosh I am gone, a new place to be,
the next come together, the next fantasy.
Oh why do you taunt in the quietest time,
the moment of calm, is it really a crime?!
What rubbish my mind, why do you spout,
and make me move on, pushing me out.

If so then listen to mine.
Never given any second chances.
Which I find is never fine.
People giving mean looks and seconds glances.
For hatred is the table upon which they dine.
Thinking me the product of demonic dances.
Knowing not the world is thine.
Putting people in hypnotic trances.
Watching my heart unwind.
They think me a fool.
Wishing me harm.
Or how cruel.
What hypocrisy they farm.
Thinking me a mule.
Giving me grief, pain and alarm.
Evil but not evil.
Good but not truly good.
Thinking the world as a pit of black and white.
Being as others should.
Sudden awakeningAghast and panic-stricken I awoke,Sudden awakening9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
risen from a dark, deep slumber.
I found myself in an alien place,
once my home, but no longer.
What have happened I soon understand,
and a look in the mirror confirms my fear.
It shows me having grown even older,
with a little new wrinkle here and there.
Trembling, no longer able to stand
I fall back in my chair, into despair.
Why does this keep happening to me?
Is my life now finally beyond repair?
Sleeping GiantBreak forth to the city and present this truth,Sleeping Giant11 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The gentle streets of justice filled with youth.
Ever-calming gaze of the slumbering giant,
Dormantly waiting in a dream of defiance.
Lowly breathing on a tremulous cloud;
Insecure thought and ignorance all around.
Make still these assumptions of dire consequence,
State then this good brought forth by sense.
Sleep then gentle giant,wake not yet,
For your waking wrath we are sure to regret.

My hands refuse to obey.
So instead I'll hang.
Summer is ending, and fall,
Fall will pass. Winter can't stop.
Nothing left beneath
Empty air under my feet,
This drop will be sweet.
Cause I'm so tired of waiting,
For this lovely long, long drop.
And my grip is finally slipping.
My Eyes.Beyond your look,My Eyes.17 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I see the tears,
In your closed book,
I read your fears.
Behind your smile,
Hide broken teeth,
It takes just a while,
To see your grief.
With each word,
You spit your soul,
For each chord,
You play your role.
Closing my eyes,
Lets me see light,
Forget everyone dies,
Pull back from the fight.
But I cannot allow,
Going dead or blind,
Not then or now,
Them, I have to find.
My eyes are not mine,
Just a tool to see,
Those who are fine,
Fine just like me.

My empty face as dragons
Dance between the clouds.
Life and death are just waveforms
And I dance between them too.
Scraping out my soul,
My strength is in the hollow
Shell that I now am.
Because death is without weight,
While she comes I will dance.
One last time I dance.
Knowing I have not mattered
Means I am free.
You were always my false dream
Now I shall finally wake.

And when the time is right
We should run away and flee
We could start a life
Just the two of us
We could do anything
And there would be no fuss
UntitledMy love for youUntitled23 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Is impossible to conceal
And when I'm with you
I can't describe the way I feel
When you are with me
I start getting a feeling of such
Love and affection
That's magnified when ever we touch
I don't want to live without you
I cannot deny
And when you touch me
I feel like I can fly
The feelings I get
That I get from your love
Make me like there might
Actually be something above
