6 HoursIt’s late and I know you’re asleep6 Hours43 minutes ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Lost in dreams somewhere far
I know that most my words are cheap
And I can’t change how different we are
It’s nights like this that make me wonder
Just why fate brought us here
My head is loud with thoughts like thunder
As I’m trying to dull my fear
It’s not that I can’t be alone
I swear I once was stronger
Then to sink into despair like a stone
Much faster than I’d prefer
It’s darkness that makes me come here
Each and every goddamn night
My flesh and bones pine to be near
To the one who introduced me to light
It’s late and I'm lucid dreaming
Of uprooting my life for anew
I’d throw away an old lovers ring
If it’d prove anything to you
For When Things Go Bump In The NightI Don't Want You In My Nightmares AnymoreFor When Things Go Bump In The Night55 minutes ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Sleep was never a friend of mine
I would avoid it any chance I could
Another coffee or two
There was nothing I would not do
So I would not have to close my eyes
And that is no lie
But that was then
This is now
I don't want you in my nightmares anymore
While the rest of the city slept
That is when I would roam the city streets
The only jobs I would take
Were the ones that latest to six a.m.
That way I'd be too tired to dream
But that was then
This is now
It is time I took control
And drove you out of my nightmares
You are nothing but a bad memory
I am stronger now
And I don't want you in my nightmares anymore!!

Words for the BrokenIt seems people rushWords for the Broken2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
To sign a cast
Saying "Feel better soon"
Or "Hope the pain doesn't last"
But they avoid your emotional pain
It seems mental hurt
Isn't treated the same
No one rushes with sharpies
To leave words or a name
Or simply be a friend
We are the injured
Who long for healing too
Even though our type of broken
Isn't visible to you
It it still just as real

Puncture the pastTwo friends bond over similar lives,Puncture the past5 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
never suspecting new things to arrive.
Forever searching but never to find,
convinced of love in the past behind.
When we want to believe, we will make it true,
create an illusion until it crashes through.
Two friends know they have shared thought
both of them, in belief were caught.
The bond grows tight, they tread a path,
hours of talking, looking back.
Blind to reality not seeing the truth
until one day they kiss and are flooded with proof.

The HouseHe moved to the houseThe House6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
He moved with a friend
but the friend did something to ensure his end
so he left the house
found warmer places to stay
and when he came back he had one thing to say
"This house is quiet"
Caged insideHere we are, everything we are, everything we have. Built up inside this box.Caged inside7 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
We're caged, full of pent up rage. We bust it down and break these chains.
Set free, you see? This is the only way we can be, born to be. Unrestrained, uncontained.
Time to move forward, nothing more we can do but start a new.
Look towards the future and not dwell in the past, but remember where you came from.
Don't forget what made you, you. Stay humble and true, no matter what they put you through.
Stay one step ahead of the game, and ten steps ahead of your prey.
That way you'll never regret that day, never regret the choices you made.
So hold your head high as you look upon there face and face your fate.
You contemplate every thing you ever thought. Every word that left your mouth.
Staring down your enemy now your eyes burning with anger inside, emotions on high.
You don't know weather you should scream or cry or just run and hide.
But feel something deep inside crack, there you go you've finally snapped,
AloneI feel alone when he is not here.Alone10 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
I feel alone when he is near.
All I want is to feel his touch.
And when I do it is not long enough.
I feel alone when he is over there.
I feel alone. Dose he even care?
All I want is some passion.
Maybe just some interaction.

Theme 9: Drive_ Should I Fall For You?Theres this feeling insideTheme 9: Drive_ Should I Fall For You?23 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
That I can't quite explain
It's aching and pulling
Shouting your name
It whispers in my ear
It says to not give in
To the other voices telling me
That I have no chance to win
Holding onto what I have
Going after what I'm wanting
But it doesn't quite feel right
Because the voices are so daunting
This burning passion
That clasps it's hold around my heart
Is the pushing, driving feeling
That will not let me part
It's got me frozen in this moment
Where I don't want to let you go
But the farther apart we get
The harder it seems to know
If this driving feeling that I have
Is what I think it really is
Or if its just the painfulness
That this kind of feeling gives

I cant afford to sway
Dont prepare to say goodnight
This wont be my last fight
EmptinessThe gentle sound, the sea caresses your earsEmptiness1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Your skin is touched smooth
And helps wash away your fears
And your troubled mind soothed
Calm thoughts of emptiness
Without the sea you are lost
In the oceans of your mind
The soft touch needed most
Is in the arms of a lover so kind
Yet void of love
Chaos makes days long
Your bed makes shapes of your curves
Laid crying inside your mind
To the tune of your favourite song
And each heartbeat playing tunes with your nerves
Tunes of sadness
Light strikes into your being
With death's arrival energy sucked like a vacuum
In the depths of space
Where life ceases to exist
Eyes close, open, close, stop
Someone save me
From what consumes me not
What exists but what takes my freedom
It cannot be held
But it can destroy you
The wind speaks to you
Screams songs of peace
Introduces thoughts of new
The demons fear to cease
And you grin, evil and used
Harmonies play demonic rhymes in the chasm of your mind
How Do You Forget Someone?Even after all this timeHow Do You Forget Someone?1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
I was still not able to change your mind.
What was said has been done
And now my heart is forever gone.
For it was you to make me fall so fast
But now I have been left in the past.
For it was you who pushed me away
Now it is me who struggles to keep quiet throughout the day..
I'm tired of crying.
Now I'm even tired of trying..
Did you know there is nothing in the world that I wouldn't have done
You refused to see that. Why..?
Why did I have to say those words?
Why did I have to rip open old wounds?
Why did she have to come into your life..
Why did you have to forget me and leave me in strife.
I hope you know I really did love you.
I hope you know you really did play me.
It was an accident waiting to happen.
And now I'm still unable to let go.
I wish we never talked.
I wish we never went alone on that walk.
I really wish you never ripped out my heart.
Especial when.. all I ever asked for was a second chance..
9/8I tell myself that I don't care9/81 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
As if it doesn't even matter
I lie to myself as a tear slips down my cheek,
I can feel my heart shatter.
There is something about you
That makes a war rage inside of me
I was only pulled in by the lies that you spewed
Your lies are the reason I’m unable to flee.
I wish I never said those words to you
I wish I was never so glued to you..
It’s all just not fair
For me to worry about you
When you simply do not care and have moved on.
Suche nach AtlantisWie ein Schiff vom Sturm getrieben,Suche nach Atlantis1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
ankerlos und ohne Ziel,
treibt das Leben mich voran
verloren in der Wellen Spiel.
Die Kompassnadel ist gebrochen,
die Augen sind längst tränenleer;
ein Funken Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt
doch die Sehnsucht nimmermehr.
Die Gedanken Leck geschlagen
folge ich der Winde Klang
auf ewig suchend meinen Hafen,
den einst das wilde Meer verschlang.
Poem - Last HopeLast HopePoem - Last Hope1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Poem for Day 275 – 20151003
Last hope for my mind,
so many years have gone by
and here I still stand
seeking release from the binds.
Where is my heart,
the passion to fly?
Don't look to the sky
when the prison is near.
Surrounded by mountains,
piled high on each side.
Possessions of a lifetime
now confine as if bars.
I must find a way
for the mind to revive
or I'll drown in the mire
of a life that should fly.

Washed AwayI feel the stingWashed Away1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
I feel the burn
Let it wash away
All the hurt
And the pain
The BurnMomma used to tell meThe Burn1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
That if I played with fire I’d get hurt
But what she doesn’t know
Is that I live for the burn
The burn of life
The sting of truth
The twinge of pain
Every time I move
Tell me, Momma,
What was I supposed to do?
You were never there for me
Do you even know what I went through?
No, you don’t.
You only worry about yourself
But now I refuse
To be set up on a shelf
They say I’ll be just like you
But I refuse to be
I will be a better person
I will be me
My DisguiseCan you hear my cries?My Disguise1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Can you cut my ties?
Because I'm tired of the lies
Look me in my eyes
See past my disguise
Give me a reason why
I should continue to fight
Because the hope I had inside
That used to be so bright
Is slowly starting to die
