I think alot
Don't wanna end up
Dead, to much
Your breeze in my face
I feel a mockery
But I guess it's all in my head
I'm hard as a cube of ice
But Sahara is burning
Am I dead or alive?
Waiting too determined
Picky as well
I expect these dreams to be true
But I know they're not
Shouldn't get me down
Shouldn't wear a frown
Why live this hard
You fight to be outside
You fight to be solid ice
But Sahara is burning
And you melt into weak and small little dice

I see you every night.
Sleeping by the pond.
Cuddling with the underbrush.
My moon boy.
You dip your toes, and wrinkle your nose
Like it's just too cold to swim.
I wish I could know you
Because you look so friendly and content
In your bed by the pond.
To the moon boy,
If you ever read this,
Just know I'm dreaming about you.
Faery ShadowsSweet zephyrs lift bright emerald leavesFaery Shadows23 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
And slender trunks line winding trails
Within the wood lies Faerie Home
Whispered of in ancient tales
Shadows shift and sunlight pales.
Deep in the heart of Faerie Home
Inside the silver palace walls
Dwells the capricious Faerie Queen
And sometimes to mortal men she calls
Shadows beckon them to her halls.
Outside the woods a hunter heard
A dulcet voice calling, sweet and pure
A glamour fell across his mind
The hunter was trapped in Faerie lure
Shadow sickened with no cure.
Clumsy, blind, he stumbled on
Through sylvan trees and sunlit dells
Until he reached the palace bright
Moonlight filigree hung with bells
Shadowed heart of Faerie spells.
The tired hunter stood and stared
Before him towered a wondrous sight
The Faerie Queen, perfect in form
Eyes of diamond, hair of night
Shadows mixed with liquid light.
Stripped of self and memory
The hunter gave his heart away
Lost inside the Faerie’s spell
A trinket for the Queen to display

which was occupied by Rivercrest and under their rule.
Fortunately, the sun had set and darkness concealed the four gryphons from the ground.
Below they could see the distinctive white gryphons patrolling the forests,
but they were too focused on the ground below to look up at the sky.
The group flew away from the mainland and approached a barrier island about five miles off the coast.
It was a long and slender island about two miles long,
covered in trees, and dominated by a single heavily vegetated hill.
Much to everyone’s relief, there were no Rivercrest gryphons to be seen or heard.
On the island, there were too many gigantic oaks and coastal pines to count.
One particular oak stood on the island’s highest point.
It had massive limbs sprawled out in every direction,
and the broadest trunk any of them had ever seen.
Once landed and perched on one of the many great limbs,

whose thin material is stretching to its full potential so that streaks of white
appear on the surface like jagged scars left behind by a pair of dull scissors,
because the warm air tied tightly inside the oblong sphere is expanding.
I can feel the drops of humidity on my skin like an extra layer of sweat,
and the transparent gases become static. They cease to flow
like brisk and light blue winds of a winter day chasing spring.
Oxygen diffuses through the burning red membrane and takes with it
the breath from my lungs so that I implode
and begin to shrivel from the core of my physical being.
As I curl into a ball I float with my knees tucked
into my chest and surround them with patterned forearms,
levitating in a gravity that stiffens my limbs so that they cannot move
and crushes the curves and crevices of my brain so I cannot think.
But the pressure it places on my throat pulsates like the heart I of

A Yearning to ExploreHow do you tell someone you wish to know themA Yearning to Explore12 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
This is the question that torments me
Something so simple shouldn't be difficult
For some reason it's important to me though
Perhaps because I don't request it often
Someone has managed to really make me curious
I'd just like to spend time talking with them
Getting to know what they're all about
And yet for some reason that makes me nervous
Part of me believes that it's because of who I am
I've never been good at shallow conversation
Depth is something I seek out naturally
This person has a depth to them I have sensed
Why is it strange that I want to explore it
I just don't want to scare this person away

Tired of the waiting
So I'm the one to do it all
Not saving the world
Just another day of grind
It's here again I'm watching
A madman over time
In solitude with a single window
Straight is all I see
Original line of vision
Ravaged by the wind
Where is the assistance
My partner in crime
When will this break begin
After another hour's pain
Go forth with feeling
A dreamer's sense of courage
Civil duty brought forth
Now accepted all the same
Signs of the relevance
Finally takes a belief
Welcome to the dark side
Longing with sloth.

And often worry quite a lot
Guess I have a heavy fear
Let's just say of getting gunshot
I seem to have lost all control
Over my self-esteem and emotions
To me, it looks like somebody else

"Let your past go" is what they said
But I just can't do it right
The disorder I have, makes my mother love me
All of the other adults just don't see the light
General Anxiety is what I have
And I'm very bipolar about it
I'm the only one in my family who's mentally challenged
But now they seem to doubt it
The TruthEveryone is deaf,The Truth18 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Nobody hears you,
Justice is blind,
Nobody sees you,
People scream they want you,
but no one can handle you,
You are reality but no one is in it,
All are blinded by fear,
engulfed in the facades and deceit of themselves,
and everyone around them,
People truly fear you but never admit it,
There are few who truly want you,
But are unable to fully grasp your meaning out of their own fear,
Why will they not see you?
Why do they not hear you?
Why can they not handle you?
They need you but can not attain you,
And those who do even get a glimpse of you,
are sworn to secrecy and threatened with death,
Out of fear you would cause mass hysteria.
And yet you are there,
Standing out the in the open but no one can see you,
You are the ghost of the past, present, and future,
And so you wait,
For those who will hear,
And understand you,
But everyone wallows in ignorance,
Ignorance is not bliss,
but no one understands this,
And so you must wait.
What are you?

A hunkered down Camaro
A lifted Chevy pickup
One burns rubber
While the other throws mud
The stench of melted rubber
And the earthy smell of fresh mud
One requires a fire-suit and helmet
The other, a couple tow straps and a winch
A high horsepower monster, ready to destroy the car next to it
A beat-on truck, ready to have a little fun
Tires that are 4 feet tall, throwing clay 10 feet into the air
Smoke boiling from a pair of fat racing slicks
Country music blares inside of one
While the deafening roar of a big V8, is all that's heard in the other
One breaks an axle
The other melts a piston or two
Both ride home on a trailer
One caked in mud from the day's glory
The other takes home second place
They both have one thing in common
I want to be a part of both of these lifestyles
Even if they are
Two separate worlds

Its treacherous blanket covers me with scornful laughter.
White clouds sneer down at me like shattered skulls,
besiege me ceaselessly like flocks of vultures.
You almost drowned me with your suffocating words.
What I see clearly now: It will be you who brings me to an end.
You will not pour the cup of hemlock right into my gullet
so that all of my limbs will slowly fall asleep.
Instead you’ll make me feel my end with every single sense,
as if you'll stab the deadly blade with pleasure deep into my chest:
furiously, led by wild frenzy; or smiling, like on a sleep walk and
lost in thought as if you throw me off the cliff just with a gentle push.
Once wild nightmares, turned they into my dearest dreams, my lust, my longing.

Stupid incisions of thought lacking precision which you can say "I sought" if you need be only look

Come crashing down to earth
In digital apps and static voices
In televised waves the fire came
And washed us all to sea
The voices said more, the pictures faster
But we couldn’t keep up, the cities turned grey
And microwaved brains babbled conversational mush
A mechanical rain fell on deaf, willing ears

All went in the trash with the rest of their core

A warm light pierces the surrounding darkness
when I light up my cigarette.
Taking a long breath, feeling the smoke touching my skin.
It's been a long day and I'm tired.
But that's not enough to sleep.
It's vain try not to think.
It's vain to try to look strong.
You've haunted my mind,
and breached the ice walls that I built around me.
You left me defenceless.
You broke the mask I wore for too long,
showing me that nothing is lost.
And now I'm scared.
Scared of lose you.
Scared to know that I was right.
