Early ChillsNovember brings an early chill,Early Chills1 hour ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A prelude of holiday sleet,
The Buffalo are snowed in still,
Dreams and fears were bound to meet.
Family's huddle towards the glow,
Children hope to mold the snow.
Dissatisfied with shoddy flakes
Forced to shovel till the back aches.
Wonder to be taken away,
Snow angels rarely appear,
Soon there will be a day,
Where none lay around the sphere.
Doomed with it,
Doomed without it,
Winter shall soon be grieved,
Either way everyone's aggrieved.
The magic is still a sight so rare,
Why worry if roads are hazardous,
Practicing acts to not even care,
Is even more dangerous.
Sure the winds will blow,
So just go with the flow,
Hoping for some change.
Yet snow shouldn't die of old age.

Bible of dark secrets
Bathed in the blood of
People pulverized by
Time, hear the prayer
Of the foolish voice which
Reads your spells of
Necromancy and calls back
The spirits of Ancient Gods
Forgotten by mankind.
With incense I worship the
Infinite wisdom carved
In the flesh of victims
Sacrificed in the rite
Fascinating and deviant
Which no force has ever
Extinguished. I pray because
It's not dead what eternally
Waits sleeping in the
Depths of gloomy oceans
Where the starry light
Cannot reach to show
The slimy form of the
Immortal like time itself.
Dwells in my dreams at
Night and gnaws my sanity
With his call, distant
Echo of the dead city.

Than you my dearest friend,
I mustn't be too prudent,
To take this clear stand.
Our lessons give me feeling,
That they help both of us,
It's more than just some drilling,
And this is our plus.
The biggest award for me,
To see you speaking well,
I want to thank you Roma,
For being under the language spell.

You are doing just fine,
Wipe away those frustrated tears,
Walk your pace at your own time.
Strengthen your soul and broaden your mind,
Then treat the trial your own way,
Gather your courage and you will find,
Not all problems are there to stay.
Take the challenge straight on,
That I know you can overcome,
Ask for help, don't do it alone,
Pray to God and you'll be calm.
Every mistake you've ever made,
Any careless acts you may regret,
Don't toss them away and let them fade,
Each a lesson you must not forget.
Pray hard, work smart and do your best,
And one day you will see,
Fate isn't all cruel, that the world cares,
Your life is what your mind wants it to be.
To Sea We Sail CH:1Into the stormy sea we sailed and into the stormy nightTo Sea We Sail CH:18 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Tossed by the waves we sailed under the stars own light
And the captain looked tired and to me he said
“My friend I'm afraid to say we're dead”
And off on adventure we hailed and raced
Speeding off blind lest we be outpaced
Leaving behind a teary wife
Who knew nothing of living except for the strife
And the king had blessed us with fire and sword
All who returned would be made lord
And with gold in our eyes and glory in veins
We gladly swapped rope for the iron chains
And into the hazy fog we sailed and into the hazy mist
Tossed by the waves we sailed as our ship began to list
And the skipper looked tired and to me he sobbed
“Of my child and wife I have been robbed”
We all had our reasons and we all had our hope
Some were running from the hangmans rope
While others were empty and needed a thrill to live
And others wanted some gold to give
But whatever the reason and whatever the cause
None of us baulked and

You split my heart with such a frivolous notion,
And led me on with your pointless commotion,
I was looking for a love that I couldn’t deny,
But the law of love’s gravity I couldn’t defy,
You built me up and then you broke me down,
Leaving me to feel like a melancholy clown,
Ellen, won’t you let me come home tonight,
If only I had one more chance to make it right,
I’m just saying what is true, for I’m no faker,
Put on your smiley face you lowly heartbreaker…

Estamos conectados a través de una red.
Usted me conoce tan bien como yo te conozco.
Cuanto más tiempo pasa, más me reconozco
Que yo realmente no sé lo que quiero.
Y por esta razón por la que profiero
Lo que más valoro,
Y para lo que puede descubrir, yo imploro.
Es posible que simplemente traducir este texto,
Pero eso es una acción que convierte esto en un pretexto.
Para darse cuenta del verdadero significado tú hay que ver
Lo que está en el interior de, y de ella extraer.
De esta extracción debe encontrar
Lo que realmente quiere y reconcentrar.
Esta es mi confesión a usted, de verdad
Y puede usted estará satisfecho por su curiosidad.
LegendIn its shadow burns a memory,Legend16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Distant and nearly forgotten.
And every loss, every body to bury,
Our cities now lost; dead and rotten.
And yet it burns, this gilded memory,
Kindling the flames of conflict and love.
Reaching across the distant century,
The ire of War bears down from above.
Across the stars our destiny lies.
Through the dark below, amongst wolves.
We've finally awoken to darkened skies,
As thunder cracks from falling hooves.
UntitledI want to memorize you like the words to a songUntitled17 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Because the pit of my stomach is burning for you
And it might help if I sang along
I'm trying to convince myself this is all just a bad dream
And when I wake up in the morning it'll all be fine
Eventually the stars grow tired and fall asleep
Or so think the kids across the street
They believe the sun lets the moon breathe every night
I know it's not necessary to ask who gave you the right
To think staring at the ceiling is no longer enough
Because your tea's gone cold and you're bored with that stuff
And I still want to memorize those things that make you sad
The words you scribble on your writing pad
When you stand there looking like an empty building
And I can never figure out why
When I thought you wished to be the sea
And not the sky

It would seem like all faith is lost
That before one becomes aged and old
A simple rekindling of the soul
Is what I desire, no matter the cost
But instead life becomes a constant bore
Existing in this world slowly takes its toll
And instead of a breath of sanity
You’ll find a fixed metal core
Because I’ve abandoned my own humanity.
FirestarterMy mind is silent embersFirestarter20 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Stirred up by my heart
When feelings it remembers
It makes a fire start
When my heart's desire
Stirs within my mind
The embers create fire
Of a thoughtful kind
This serves to reveal
An ever-present link
Of all the things I feel
To all the things I think
So when my mind's aglow
With thoughts like wildfires
It only goes to show
The way my heart inspires

Who looked to the future with dread.
Then a magical cat
In front of her sat
And said “Why not a contract instead?”
Now as a magi she fights
And kills witches, full of delight.
She earned money to spend,
Got a girlfriend,
It seems everything’s going just right.
MaterialFor a minute there I forgotMaterial21 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Who I was
Traded it all for personality
And a fucking buzz
And tight laces
All those faces...
I fucked up
But I didn't care
I knew it was wrong
Sure as hell aware
It's gone now
It took to long to care
Now I'm sitting with material
But nothing to back it
Swapped my friends
For brand name jackets
Tims for friends
Life savings for a high
Sold it all
Told myself it was 'justified'...
So now I'm in a low place
Have the fabric
But I don't have 'it'
It being people
Deaf to the meaning
But open to transaction
So take my damn money
You can have it all back
Now that everyone's gone
And there's no going back
Because I wanted you to notice...
It's funny how something so solid...
Can leave you so broken...

Drunk in love
Drunk in you
From all you do
Leave my throat dry
And my hands numb
Full of you
And when the feelings lost
I go for more
Realize it takes more
Than the time before
And serve to remind
Empty, left behind
As my mind erodes
To put down the pain
I reach for another
So I check the others
Now it's all gone
And I'm left with an ache
I should've known
My heart, you'd break
But I hold no grudges
Keep no scores
Feel no anger
Have nothing in store
Because I can't stop
And I know I can't quit
Just stop feeling this one little
And I wanna be drunk
Drunk in love
Drunk in you
Left with headaches
From all that you'll do

MotivateSometimes we sit and ponderMotivate22 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
in the darkness of the night
of words we spake or strides we struck
with hope we dealt them right.
How can a woman make her mark?
Must she like a baby cry?
The world is great and full of fright
she wishes she could fly.
Why is she told she's perfect
when she knows she's made mistakes.
She's told she can do anything,
"That girls' got what it takes!"
Then why it seems to happen
she fails at all she tries.
Her biggest lack is passion
followed close by pride.
I ask only one question.
I crave just one response.
Repeating "Am I special?"
It lingers and it haunts.

With one simple word, a whole piece can be destroyed.
With one simple meaning, a piece can be praised.
What about those that are hiding millions of meanings?
Are they worshipped and held highly?
Or just thrown aside as a headache?
What is truly the meaning of a title?
To summarize the content?
What the dictionary says it is?
Or another part of the piece?
Why is it there?
What is its meaning?
Is this going to be another We are all sick?
Or does it have no significance?
To answer all these questions though..
We will need to look at my mind.
We will have to find out who I am.
What I live for.
Who I live for..
Or I can just say what the meaning of this poem is.
But where is the fun in that?
Vertical BarsThrough my wordsVertical Bars1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I let you see
The deepest, darkest
Parts of me
But still I keep
So much from you
My thoughts so many
Words so few
I paint a picture
Through my art
The inner workings
Of my heart
But still I show you
Just a glance
A tiny step
Of the whole dance
To make you feel
That you’ve seen all
I could conceal
But in my words
I hold all sway
You cannot hear
What I won’t say
You think you know me
But you don’t
I’ll let you see me
But I won’t
I’ll pull you in
Push you away
What’s held at bay
The more I show
The less you see
These vertical bars
Make me free
To spill my guts
But not my soul
To give you half
But not the whole
For the other half
You’ll have to ask
But please just know
I am my mask
36. Ode of the RingI36. Ode of the Ring1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
O, symbolic eternity born, Ante Christum; still rounded and circular of shape,
Whose looking glass centre awarded Isis (mother of Horus) a gate.
Alack, from woven reeds and ivory, to celebrate, Bacchus and his mountain grape.
Harsh, the world wherein Mars presides, guarded by woven threads ornate.
Iron: chains thy slaves & smites thy foes; owned by none, save thee;
Lady wife: carries pride-filled iron band. By Jove! The howling winds of fate
Await not! Lovers of this melancholy earth; stare no more, let breathing stars be,
Little Lamb, thou hath sufficient force by thy hearth, with Apollo’s bronzed lyre.
Rings, scattered hither and thither, tossed away upon land, & in Neptune’s stormy sea.
Pass by Anno Domini, O Jove; those who call thee Lord, freeze in fire,
Sent down to Pluto’s purgatory. Still, golden tradition doth remain. How mortally vain
Thine efforts. Thou shalt n’er exp

Se pierde el recuerdo, recuerdo de amar,
de poder ser feliz, de volver a soñar.
Recuerdo de tener algo por que llorar.
Antes me consolaba en mi amargo vivir
que el amor, tan bello, pudiese existir.
Mas hace tanto tiempo que lo pude sentir
que concibo ya nada aparte del morir.
Ya sólo me recuerdo al amor recordando,
mas al amor en sí -¿estaría soñando?-
no puedo recordar. Y termino pensando
si de verdad estuve alguna vez amando.
