Unnatural disasterThere is a fault line in our relationship.Unnatural disaster22 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Our mighty foundation crumbling
before we were aware.
Like tectonic plates that shift -
the friction between us is palpable.
The tension builds until
And the quake shakes us to our knees.
The aftershocks echo the worst.
The ripples become a mountainous wave.
Yet we remain silent,
As though we never felt the tremors and
The thunders had never boomed.
Who's fault was it?
We are powerless as this crack
becomes a valley and we lack the
strength to build a bridge.
The fragile tether holding us together
is frayed and decayed.
Intimate fibres shift to give way.
Our once mighty foundation tumbling down
before we ever admitted we were aware.

TeaCurls of translucent steam break the air.Tea22 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
The water, so clear, becomes an earthy hue
As tender dried leaves are placed in it with care.
A medley of nature’s elements ensues.
Steam becomes wisps of fragrance, so sweet.
The aroma that holds the earth and sun
Soothes the senses with its rising heat.
Its vapor fills me, and reality and dreams become one.
I raise the cup, and my glasses become coated with haze.
Then the cup’s brim meets my lips, and through them soft liquid slides.
My mind and soul bathe in the elixir as my eyes begin to glaze.
The warm, leafy flavors flow through me, along with the nourishment they provide.
I hold my cup in quiet contemplation and I know
That no matter to season or how down I may be
The warmth and love I hold in my hands comes to show
That there is nothing better than a nice cup of tea.
Sunshine GirlThe darkness has come rolling inSunshine Girl13 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
the flowers died, the world is flooded.
And once a happy world today
has become a shade of grey.
Working to force the colors in
but they all just bleed right out.
The sunshine girl is taken over
by the demon coming out.
I am stalking my next prey.
The world's taken over by harsh words
and love is lost by all.
How dare you say the things you do
and leave people feeling blue.
The anger's taking over me
but unlike you I've learned respect.
So I will keep this to myself
and let fate decide what's next.
And I will bring back the sunshine girl
who dries up all the rain.
Her bright colors will learn to rule the world
and away the pain.
And the empty words will melt away.
My PrayerThe bitter pain of ignorance is burning in my veinsMy Prayer5 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
As tears from my empty eyes are melting in the rain.
Blind the desert, under the chilling wind it wails,
Particles of shattered glass to cut my skin it hails.
I am lost, ahead of me I see no way there anymore,
The road behind I have forgotten, a path to nevermore.
I am lost, and as for each and every step I fight
I close my eyes and dream a dream of darkest night.
Hear my call, Thee, Spirit Eternal,
Inside my mind may Thine be let.
Thy beauty ineffable, infernal,
Once I witnessed never to forget.
Shine Thy Light into my soul
Where no sun can ever reach.
Tell me the truth that I have known,
The one that nobody can teach.
Be the guidance when I'm lost,
In Thy wings there is no sin.
Be what I love and fear the most
As in Thy Darkness I give in.
Then even in the deepest grief
This one hope of mine will linger.
What I give to Thee is my belief,
I speak Thy name, Lightbringer.

over the rocks in my throat
bouncing, burbling, running
forth to meet an ocean
lost in a melding and shift
salted fresh and
clean and brisk the river
enters fathomless depths
long is the length and span
of time a single drop
of water lives.

Your misshapen forms of ideas
Or you misshapen forms of most of you
But I saw only you.
You were pointing ahead
full, feather-breasted in your valor
And I, still growing my plumes
Your mangle awaits my discovery.
UntitledThe cold breeze nipped against her skin,Untitled14 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Caressing her arms and leaving goosebumps.
She swung the flashlight around again.
A flash of glimmering eyes
Shrugged off as nothing but imagination.
She continued walking,
Hoping it truly was a play of light.
She checked her phones battery,
6%, and dying fast.
The streetlight was still out of reach.
She picked up her pace,
Wanting to reach her destination.
The faster she went, the more noise came.
Rustling bushes, and branches creaking
Wind seemed to breathe down her neck.
The light flickered,
It's battery finally dying out.
I guess now she'll know,
What lies beyond the shadows..

and we wander
wondering on the best ways
to fit the pieces,
some moments bring forgetfulness
about how, my love,
we are the remains of stars
with the privilege to mold matter
after our own fragile thought
youth is not wasted on us.

I don't want help, I don't care if I end up alone.
I love you so much, but I wish I were dead.
I keep hearing voices resonating in my head.
I'm sorry I've rejected your love. I don't want you to see me this way.
Lately there have been blue skies, but I can only see grey.
I wish that things were easier on both of us, but things will change, you'll see.
I love you so much, but I need you to leave.

To everybody that moved me,
You'd have enough words
For a book and a movie.
Tears in my eyes
Remember the memories.
Precious treasures kept close
As I walk ahead and see
That the world will never end
But that's okay.
There's a meaning to life
We'll never know anyway.
For today, I am at peace.
Wanting to help stop the wars
Because this beautiful earth could cease
If we let this gift get torn.
Nazis, a poemNazis, your dear machine shaped minds are lost and mad.Nazis, a poem1 hour ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Fascist and racist ideals breaks any individual so sad.
Nazis, you carry a blackness inside that is covered in white.
You can never be the freedom fighters who decides what's right.
Nazis, rationality and conscience will always be your foe.
Your mindset is a threat and this is what both of us know.
Nazis, your guns will remain silent.
But never your love for the violent.
Nazis, you are parasites with an unjust hate.
Even though, to turn back is never too late.
Nazis, your mother was nothing but a temptation so wild.
Who only drove your father away from one parents' child.
Nazis, you are comfortable with the art form of death.
You are the memory of walking bones and their breath.
Nazis, seek for thunder and messages within the stone.
The insanity you offer yourselves will be yours alone.
Nazis, your pride would never allow a new vision.
You're always struggling and losing your mission.
Nazis, why do so many of you even try to write
AloneI live in this world all alone,Alone6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
With no real place to call home.
I see the faces all around me,
And hear enough sounds to fill the sea.
If my mind is a dark place where people should not tread,
Is my life one not to be lead?
Maybe I like to think of people when they’re dead
But it calms the voices in my head.
I test the waters of what is known
And my ideas leave their home.
They’re judged by those around,
And I’m persecuted by the people I wish to put in the ground.
I tread this world, without a home,
Secluded in the dark, I’m all alone.
