ImmortalityI was just your average everyday guy,Immortality4 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
who liked an occasional drink with friends
and maybe watch a football match,
Sometimes bad things happen and now I am immortal!
cos since my passing, my memory´s been kept alive,
by the sweetest and most loving gal
who I was blessed to call my wife.
She´s proved this with every beat of her heart,
everything she makes, paints, writes and all her art.
Each time she speaks my name and each lonely tear she cries,
I know I was so dearly loved, my memory won´t die.
There must be no greater tribute, after being laid to rest,
being made immortal is 'Love' at its best.
Honey I want you to know this too,
I`ll wait for you above.
I´m sorry that it broke your heart,
this I swore, I´d never do.
I pray that you will find some peace,
that your broken heart will mend
But honey while keeping me immortal,
you might miss your happy end.

and-- no, no.
that doesn't sound right.
um, i'm gonna make a poem
straight from simplicity
and humanity that no one sees.
(jesus, that's so cliche.)
except you guys
because it's easier to get naked
for the internet
than anywhere else.
but i've already taken
my clothes off for you all,
so let me unscrew my head.
i'm legal but not really mature
unless we're talking about
existenti-- no, we said simple.
no more existing, existence never was
and i have to understand that.
i'm an adult by law
but not in my prime
and i'm actually really moody,
speaking more deadpan
is society's autotune--
and no one thing
should have all that power.
half the time,
my mind is thinking
and the other half
is fucking living.
or fucking and living.
i haven't decided yet.
probably fucking though.
oh, and speaking of sex,
i guess i have a quality about me
that screams gay or something
because i've been asked if i was such
Hero in AtticI don't care if you can hear meHero in Attic2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I don't care if you escape
I'm just another righteous fool
in blue PJs and a ruby cape
I don't care if you get better
I don't care if you get well
I've got gadgets on my belt
and a swishy red-breast sentinel
I don't care if you're immortal
You should try to be like me
Lurking silent on dark rooftops
Casting webs without mercy
I don't care if you're connected
You must struggle to be free
The Machine has always said so
so your life's a mystery
I don't care if you despise me
'cause my work is now complete
These brain bombs always surprise me
when they blow up in the street
Questioning the EndWhat fascinates us about the end?Questioning the End6 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Why do we always attempt
To prevent it, stop it dead in its tracks?
Whether in books or mortal lives
we try and prevent it at all costs
But is it really that terrible?
For only at the end
Can you see how far you’ve come.

GoodbyeI'm walking out tonightGoodbye4 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Cuz this fight
Has taken me down to tears;
I'm feeling worse than I've
Felt in years.
And I think it's time
I know I forget sometimes
What we, together, have been through.
But you have to admit that it's true
That I don't deserve this abuse.
So go on then,
I'll just come back fierce.
Every word you say to pierce
Me hardens me.
I'm pushing myself out tonight
This is finally the last fight
I'll have with you;
I'm done with you.
Goodbye, we're through.
Hell, I'm sorry too
But that doesn't change what you put me through.
I get it;
I'm better off out there
In the cold, alone and scared.
But at least I'm not hurting like I am with you.
Everything that you throw at me always strikes true.
I handled it for years now
I've dealt with all the tears; how
Could you do this?
We've been through this;
If you hit me, I'm out.
You're allowed to stomp, you're allowed to shout.
But your fist flew,
Now I'm through
You'll have to do
Your LieYou talk like you know me;Your Lie1 week ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Like you've every right to say
How I should live my life—
Like yours is the only way.
You say I'm no fun to talk to;
That I don't listen—is that even true?
Cuz from my experience
The one not listening, is you.
You say it's just the way you talk—
That you actually care;
That it's my mistake to think
That you're putting on prideful airs.
But you see, I've seen you do otherwise—
You can empathize when you want;
You can speak kindly, with love in your eyes—
So don't tell me that you can't.
You paint my image with your words—
Guess my heart from your mind's eye—
But in truth, you know me not
Beyond the colors of your lie.
MaskI wear a mask upon my head;Mask1 day ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
It hides the emotions that I dread.
You see my smile, not my tears;
You share my joy, not my fears.
I fake a smile, hide my pain,
I wish to never feel again.
Upon my head I wear a mask;
In my head, I'm breaking fast...
Poetry Session: What are we?Poetry Session: What are we?3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Who are you?
Who am I?
Do you belong to someone?
Do I belong to someone?
Do we belong to anyone or anything?
Are you a slave?
Am I property?
I question if anyone has a place in society?
I find it weird,
the words we speak.
I guess in someways that is unique,
then again some of us are treated like freaks.
We get these feelings called emotions,
Love and hate,
shunned or assimilate.
Blend in or standout.
I want to scream and shout.
We have achieved so much in these short lives,
that some of us still choose to strive.....
for that unattainable key.
The secret to immortality.
Why did seek something beyond our reach?
That kind of knowledge I call the untouchable peak.
Can't we just be satisfied with the lives we have?
It's how we live them that makes them last.
Our inventions are great solutions,
yet they manage to cause pollution.
It creates disruptions,
which leads to corruption,
Let it all fall down to under Heaven destruction.

My Dark SecretMany people do not knowMy Dark Secret5 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
But I guess that I should really say so
I’m not always happy, I can promise you that
My mood can change like the tail of a cat
Sometimes I’m happy and sometimes I’m sad
Sometimes I fall when the things are too bad
I can’t release anger or people make sighs
So I hid all my feelings in all of my cries
You never truly realize who has tried it before
You don’t really know until you open their door
You feel all their feelings and experience their pain
That’s when it finally makes a hit in your brain
These people can smile but they’re truly in guilt
They know what it’s like to grab into a hilt
To grab a gun’s barrel and think of the chance
They still look fine at moment’s first glance
You never see them staring at the rope
You never see them slowly losing hope
Don’t see through fake smiles and fake giggles of glee
So I guess that’s why people haven’t seen the true me
It hurts when I think bu
Quotes of SecretsNever trust someone who will just get up and tell you another person’s story or secrets, cause they’ll share yours just the same.Quotes of Secrets5 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Be careful who you tell a secret, some peoples’ way of keeping secrets is posting them on Facebook.
Secrets tend to get revealed when you’re feeling most loved and when you’re feeling most betrayed.
You can hide your secrets in your smile.
We are bound by the secrets we share.

She's the kinda girl who is unconventionally beautiful.
He's the kinda guy in black shirts and flannels.
She's the kinda girl in sweaters and oversized hoodies.
He's the kinda guy that calms everyone down.
She's the kinda girl that worries day and night.
He's the kinda guy that attracts the beauty queens.
She's the kinda girl who traces broken hearts on the empty lunch table.
He's the kinda guy who goes waves at her in the hall.
She's the kinda girl who's lips for a smile at him from a distance.
He's the kinda guy that cries openly about what happens no matter what they think.
She's the kinda girl that puts her headphones on and sobs into her sleeves.
He's the kinda guy that gets her to laugh.
She's the kinda girl that plasters a smile on his face.
He's the kinda guy she can't reach.
She's the kinda girl he's dragged away from.

I guess that's kinda stupid
trying find a purpose
can it really lie in music
my head is a mess
and I ain't talking bout my haircut
I got some dark shit on my mind

I don't think I'm fine

based on my life
I guess this is reality
so what the fuck is happiness

The BookThe ashes fell, it almost looked like snowThe Book4 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The people watched, interested in a show
The child wailed, his mother dead inside
The daughter watched, another life aside
A girl that knows her time will come watches wordlessly as the world passes on
A boy who is ignorant to life outside watches happily as the world passes by
A man and woman dead on the floor, the love their children felt is no more
A child screams silently into the night, wanting nothing more than to end her life
A story passes from hand to hand no one interested enough to change its plans
The daughter acquires the book one day, remembering a life gone away
The girl that waits for death to come gets the book and knows her days are done
The ones who watch the world wither and die know the words will never be defied
From your perspectiveA lunch date for 5 turns into a lonely walk home as she abruptly exits the scene and makes her way home. On the streets, unable to control a sudden wave of self-pity and melancholy, she buckles down on a bench, lights a cigarette, and sobs. It was then when I see her from a few feet away while, just drinking in the moist December air from all the rain we’d be having for the past few weeks, walk up to her, and attempt to offer her a light for the now-second cigarette she was pulling out. Smiling softly, eyeliner down her caramel-toned face in two dark lines, she graciously accepts it. And before we both know it, is spilling out the entire story of the evening’s happenings about going to an outing with friends who had then naturally left her out, indulging in girlish chatter- a topic completely out of place for this lovely young lady seated a few centimeters to my right- A young lady, as I can see; lives for deep intelligent conversations held with bosom buddies late at nightFrom your perspective3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
What Makes A MotherWhat Makes a MotherWhat Makes A Mother2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Is it a person who gave birth to you
Is it a woman who cleans after you
Is it a lady who makes food
or gives you a fucking roof
To live under
Is it a woman who washed your clothes
Or washes your dirty dishes
Is it a person who takes you to school,
NO. It’s none of that bullshit
A mother is someone who loves you
some that cares for you
Picks you up when you fall
Kisses your pains away
The person on the other side that kicks the ball
The one that won’t leave you a stray
A mother who will go across entire oceans just for you
A mother who will hug you in times of need
A mother that comes through
One who will always have open arms to you, no matter what you have done

Yet light like bone
Your eyes were dim
Scent so cold
Those winter nights
I lay alone
The snowflakes fall
They die on stone
Only spoke ancient lies
Whilst hiding your joy
Whilst grouping thine eyes
The nights turned over, cold
In the likness of your heart
Loves healing, I suppose
But my arm's still scarred
Walk slowly away
Without you in time
Yet when the night's cold, I swear I still
Feel your hand holding mine.

are no longer welcomed here.
brief memories of longer walks
four a.m. talks, now blood like chalk
that shakes loose from an intravenous knife—
rife with death
and weak with life.
the struggle with love now hooks me less
and i am tired of these messes
loose ends, dead friends
no one slithers into me now.
i have red flags to stab them with.
i lost you, and so here’s my turn:
the fire at the years old bridge
begins its thankful burn.

guess not with the current state of this poor relation
-ship; got a lot to deal with, burnt out in your space station
of a mind, running dry on important things like patience
i can't find the meter to any of this rhyme
just as long as it makes sense in my mind
getting tired of these meta metaphors
sure, they sound like nothing, but behind closed doors
the picture's getting painted, the whole house and the floors
it echoes off the walls, you know it can't be ignored
it can't be ignored
blind and deaf we are; that's by choice, not by force
we block out all the bad because the good isn't worth
crumbling and kneeling, dropping down on all fours
my mind's made up, you know it can't be ignored
my disposition to this disassociation is thus
it's just a problem that i'll fix, i'm done being numb
you can't control me; you're less a plague, more a fuss
i've accepted all the trials of your petty, hopeless forum
Lost TimeYou were here just yesterday,Lost Time2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
What happened to the days when we were all smiling together?
Now I'm just left in a pile of tears and memories.
The day has come and the moon stares down with its judging eyes.
The empty trudging pain won't go away.
When will I see you again.
The after life is so far away.
Although we never know when death may come and touch us.
My mind remains in the turmoil that is life,
Just sitting in a corner pondering about the time.
Time is wasted on such pettiness.
I wish I had of appreciated you while you still lived.
But death has touched your soul.
Now I can't tell you I'm sorry for the time we have lost.
The sky remains dark,
Although it is light outside.
My heart remains black,
The tears won't reside.
I miss you so much,
I hope you know that I love you.
Someday I'll see you again,
But for now I'll just believe that you're smiling down upon me.

The ideal of beautyThe ideal of beauty is something we look for and often we don't find it.Do to we take bits and pieces of others to make that perfect person.By doing this we set ourselves up for failure!The true ideal of beauty is that feeling we get when your true love walks threw the door.For which it's hard for you to think,breath,or function without thinking of them and to feel truely loved back by them.If your narrow minded you will never know this and your at a true loss.But if you do get this chance then fight for it because you will proably never get the chance agian.So please don't be a fool and let it go by thinking there will be another,because it's not like a city bus and another is comeing in a few minutes.Beleaveing this will only bring you regret!!!!The ideal of beauty4 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
