Expectant and powerful.
Waiting for me to fall to my knees and kiss your feet.
But I am not.
I am not going to be neglected kissing your palm, while you barely glance at mine!
No! I shall not become your debt collector.

Dziewięćdziesiąt butelek stoi rzędem przy ścianie,
Spadnie pierwsza i druga i kolejna już głowa,
W sieci nocą splecione snem anielskim splątane,
Wpadną wszystkie ludzkości wiatrem niesione słowa.
I nic dalej nie będzie i zapadnie już cisza,
Ostra niczym krzyk źrenic rozszerzonych do granic,
Melodyjką z pudełka znów do snu ukołysze,
Dziewięćdziesiąt butelek znowu stanie przy ścianie.

Harmonized voices sing
Choral practice taking place
Choir achieved state of grace.
Voices soar and surround
No constraints they're not bound
Perfectly magical healing power
Musical reflection, melodious hour.
Garden SlakedSkirted crux still tyrant loomGarden Slaked1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A wash to cleanse the earthen peat
Cling deadened neat as twining doom
Dancing rose in gallows hang
A fealty prayed with whispering
And sing come severed tolling rang
Rocky shoal conspired to dale
A task impartial of its bars
To let its mars cascade to pale
Fingers in a holding stance
The text invite a deceased mind
To share the kind of dying chance
Dress in sequence has no threads
And blended ties sway with the lines
As does the fine and roughened bled
Sombre on the bruising cheeks
Flush see its waters cast away
To ending day the noose will seek
A flower floating on a tide
Have weakness for its will to leave
Believe it made its choice to die
Crown gone weightless burden passed
And rule and regulations give
The ceaseless last to let one live
Wounds unhealed fresh as eyes
See existence for all its bears
And share the moment left behind
Outside on the cusp still one
Impacted in a shifting cloth
End willing done to send one off
Arms fallen in flesh of age

The angels wept and cried,
For all the day’s sweet innocence
Had withered and had died.
I stood upon a growling rock
Amidst a rabid sea,
And looked into the shutting eye
That glared right back at me.
And as I stared into the eye,
This savage setting sun,
I could not help but shed a tear
To see its life was done.
Best Friend SonnetWe started out small in the beginningBest Friend Sonnet1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
We barely knew the other existed
But just a simple "Hi" we made a thing
A thing where we BFF'S are listed
I feel like we are closer than sisters
Some may even call us like conjoined
No one can break us, not even misters
When it comes to best friends we are who wins
We are not afraid to laugh out so loud
Even with so many people around
I can't say our moms would be proud
By the weird and crazy many sounds
With the artistic talent that we share
And our too wild personalities
Our friendship will go on without a care
Our personalities are benalities
From New Jersey to California
You are always my true best friend, Hannah.
Bands of MeltOld frosts delving through their spansBands of Melt2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Remnants lay collecting bands
Have no cause
But causeless not
For none have been that way
Quasi leisurely companions
Piles of fleshless reparations
Well in debt
But far from debt
As one will loan until deranged
Zealous binds gain paltry changing
Long endure no sign of ranging
Differ so small
But small is great
When seen by other side of act
Under balms made sleep deprived
By the tendrils once alive
But roundless cause
Circle a path replaced the thick
Promise like a fondest light
From some smallest lasting fight
In tideless break
Has lost under a nightly sky
What we are...Have you ever thought about why we are here?What we are...2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
On this pale blue dot that we live in like a lair
Thoughts like dying or coming back to life
Have you been that curious that you're actually willing to strive
For a Christian they would believe that God who created
That we came from dirt and brought to life with a single breath
But if you're willing to listen, I will tell you so
That we too are Gods can you not see so?
From the Bible it was stated
That God created us with His own image
So if I ask you what is God, what would you say?
God is simply God, so wouldn't that explain everything anyway?
So we are gods, yes, now shall we move on?
Through what's out there, the space and beyond
A long time ago in a singularity
exploded and expanded for all eternity
Stars were then born from these nebulae
and lived, died and exploded the same way
Those dust that the stars have scattered
Created us and everything that matters
Know you are a star child, now moving on to the next

The drops of the cosmos in her hair?
Isn't she intellegent?
Dainty and fair?
What else could you ask for?
Her heart an expanse....
Ask her for knowledge
Pass go, advance!
She ponders dark matter
Thought explode like a supernova
To bad she's alone
With no Casanova
So let me be
I'll sit and write
I'll discover galaxies
And black holes tonight....
Like the stars
In the sky tonight
She's to bright for darkness...
So they nicknamed her light.
My teddy My teddy has been here for meMy teddy9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Since I was very small
He's soaked up many tears for me
When I needed to bawl
Even when I'm all alone
And I need a hug
My teddy will not moan and groan
'Cause I am not some slug
Laying here with teddy now
I know his heart is warm
And to you, teddy, now I vow
It's you who I will never harm
Even if I somehow do
I'll stitch you up again
Because the only one is you
One of the few who bring me zen
Oh teddy please, accept my thanks
It's you who's never left
It's you who helped me scale the ranks
My heavy heart you've helped me heft
I love you teddy, for now and forever :')
Love for ArtSuch lovely,beautiful,vibrant colors.Love for Art9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Surely these are not like any other.
Those deep dark colored strokes
Remind me of a ravens feather coat.
Oh my! What a lovely painted tree oak.
Such work with much devotion.
Just stirring up my emotions.
From those grassy plain greens
that cover every drawn being
to show every dash that you made
for every single grass blade.
Every detailed line has me entranced.
As if it's inviting me for a dance.
It's as if you captured natures beauty
with every color that makes me moody.
Every stroke made that's so divine
that makes an artist say "hey that's mine".
Such a painting well defined.
It's amazing because it came from your mind.
This is a painting that took much dedication.
This is a painting that shows an artists concentration.
It's something that came from the heart,
Not just any piece of art.
It's an idea from above.
It's a painting that shows the artists love.
Silent GuardianAll this life I've been the outcast,Silent Guardian11 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The loner targeted by his peers.
Haunted by the ghosts and memories of my past
I have been tempered to have no fears.
Unseen as I move through crowds like a shadow
Remaining ever vigilant for a sleight of hand,
My will is fixated on protecting friend an even foe
For I am the darkened Silent Guardian.
Influences I bring are subtle yet profound
As I remain dutiful to guiding my friends.
The reason for this is simple: small may be my sound,
But to ignore the need for unity will be their ends.
Isolated as I was gave me a great host of knowledge,
The legends I opened showed me lands of endless span.
Armed with the world's secrets give me the edge
For I am the experienced Silent Guardian.
Don't try to look for me, you'll never succeed.
I am no hero; I have not a symbol nor a mark.
This I promise you, that I am where there's a need,
For I am the Silent Guardian, keep this to heart.

Snatch from sky, cut from bone
My heart’s blood true, my burden just
The journey long, the way unknown
Only by my Will shall we be divided
From my form your shadow is cast
Heavens burst, stars collided
Stretching out black and vast
Though blood had bound you
That blood had broken thee
It is my blood that delivers you
I bind you now to me
Through honor of duty, I bind you.
Through law of creation, I bind you.
Through will of spirit, I bind you.
Through blood of heart, I bind you.

wondering where you are.
Staring out into the night,
wishing on a star.
Wishing that you're safe and sound
and happy all the while.
Counting down the days until
I get to see you smile.
Every time I go to sleep,
I dream of you and me,
and when I wake, I start to smile,
because I know we're meant to be.
I can't wait to be with you
and hold you in my arms,
to kiss your lips and make you smile
and keep you safe from harm.
I love you more than I can say,
more than you'll ever know
You have to know, no matter what,
my love for you will grow.
On the day we finally meet
we'll share good times and laughter,
because that's the day we'll know for sure
we'll live happily ever after.
Sonnet Tennis: Italian OpenWayfarer, thy heart weeps for a promise in vainSonnet Tennis: Italian Open1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
How oft wilt thou cry your woes to the Almighty
Adrift amidst the waters that seek to smite thee
Upon the rocks of distant shores where might is main?
Near the shores, wilt thou find such closure from thy pain
Like waves crashing the shores, flowing as He decreed,
Though currents push thy progress back, and blood may bleed,
And veiled are truths that once in happier times were plain?
"I had sought from my Lord, an audience, for naught
Nay! For His will was done, not to have His justice served
Alas, thus I weep, and hence does my soul suffer.
Though slow his promises appear to those distraught,
His face in anger hidden, not to be observed,
But still I cling, my faith made strong though times be tougher."

It becomes something so beautiful,
Like mixing together yellow and blue,
It’s the rhythm of a heartbeat,
A feeling so strong, it’ll overcome you…
It’s why you live, for it pleases the heart,
But sometimes without it you must go,
It can be the cure to many different things,
Yet be patient, for it needs time to grow…
It has a way of extraordinary measures,
It mends wounds you never thought would heal,
It will grab you when it’s least expected,
And when it strikes you’ll know that it’s for real…

With the moon's madness
Yet sane in her own right
In her own way fearless
She moves gracefully
With hair like moonlight
Yet not to be taken lightly
in her own way a frightful sight
She is the moon
And the stars and the night
So what if she's a bit of a loon
What really matters is that she is bright

My legs won't move
My mind won't think
I sense it watching
Taking it's time
waiting to strike
Fear takes control
blurs my vision
shakes my hands
I hear it
It's coming closer
It's catching up
My heart is pounding
My body won't move
My hair is raising
I feel it's touch
I hear it's breath
I smell it's stench
It can't be outrun
you can't hide
life catches up
And death takes us all

And music reaches climax.
It ends on a sudden note,
To which it's reached the max.
The worries and quarrel are drowned out,
To the sound of music.
I couldn't go without
My daily dose of it.
And if or when it stops,
The world goes insane.
The clapping sound is just too much,
So loud it hurts my brain.
So let the record spin in peace.
Shh... don't disturb it.
Wallow in the musical tone,
And make sure you enjoy it.

si las quieres atrapar.
Las palabras que me huyen
cuando pretendo crear.
Mi mente está en blanco,

y no siente nada ya.
Si el alma está vacía
el alma no creará.
Into The Dreamscape I Wander CH:1Into my dream I stepped and I wanderedInto The Dreamscape I Wander CH:13 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
“Oh where am I?” I thought and I pondered
“With colours so sweet as to make a man kind”
“With darkness so deep as to make a man blind”
And before me he sat, a fool with no eyes
A paragon of a man but a man of lies
For with ease he saw me and smiled to me
In a land where the no eyed man can see
“Welcome my friend to the home of strife”
“Where hope and fortune mix to make life”
“I bid thee greeting but it shan't be for long”
“For you are not welcome where you cannot be wrong”
“I fear I am lost, if I may call you friend”
“This is the beginning but I looked for the end”
The blind man laughed “You aren't to blame”
“Take a look friend, they are one and the same”
And as I looked around, his words came true
Fire and fury that was coloured blue
All that was made was reduced to ash
All that was formed was gone in a flash
