that when they tell us to sit down
and shut up
we take out our pencils, paper, creativity
and we defy the system
and this is how it goes south
but really, this is how it needs to be
you take away our voices
you steal from us our hearts
you put such strict rules on us
that we break down
and don't even want to be a part
of whatever it is you are trying to accomplish
you've taken our identities
our love, our personalities
to you, we're just another failure waiting to happen
we are not what you think we are
we are the future
we are your future
what you are doing is wrong
and simply put
and it will never end like a page
will never result in crystal clear static
we are our own forever and you cannot take us from ourselves

I held it by the trigger and so did the Mercury, Venus wind was at my command
And toward the thin gap between desk and chest of drawers, where the remnants
Of beginnings lay now dead and discarded, forgotten.
And so does the hot air kick up the snowflake styled paper pieces
Launching them about,
Sending them afloat and into the air,
scattering them everywhere they could be or can.
And so did I watch them dance, moved the nozzle of my weapon close, back and in all directions…
Like a conductor of old words that only have use in such an experiment.
But I have little else to speak of on that topic
For there are other words to push toward and at you in this assault…
Just as there are old words, there is a whole world of old memories
And there happens to be one I have not recorded…
The guns gust blew my way a thought of how horrified she was…
For one reason or another they plucked her from her bed
And took her towards the sick
The FeebleThere is an auburn flair language, which is not common among the lands; playful to the ears as an atypical moan that puts one in a choke hold.The Feeble19 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
It always runs its route, never stopping; ceaselessly it seems down the ways fly through stale air.
Just doing so, giving plays that just keep going; there could never be just one need.
To those who don’t understand, its fine; there was never a full reason.
Lay in peace, a momentary instant it will be; but hold it!
Even if daring to blink and giving up, it will be crushed; dust blowing the wind as a goodbye.
Leaving that feel of a passing passion; comes to that as a need, yet far from it when it truth it is only a feeble want of misery.

There will be rest.

And there will be peace.
Sleep, my child.
There will be rest,
Until the dawn comes.

The light of faith.

THe crystal of peace...
And the dawn will come to you.

And hope is reborn in the dawn.

I'm hoping, hoping with all of my heart
But most of the time, that's only the start
You see what I need is all the joy I can get
To cover the past and abolish regret.
I'm down on my knees, crushed by the pain
Waiting for sunshine to shatter the rain
But the malignant nature of just the front of the storm
Bends me to its will, doubles over my form
What should I do, how do I get free?
This tropical storm has targeted me
Where is the calm, the storms only eye?
I need it right now before I happen to die
What does it mean when you’re bent by the wind,
Yet you're not quite broken, but too weak to defend?
Is it a sign of some strength you didn't know that you had?
Or is it your sorrow and grief driving you mad?
I'm faithful that someday I will find my own bliss,
But the struggle that I'm facing is postponing this.
I want to be happy despite the dismal emotions,
I want to find freedom from this abysmal commotion.
But where do I get started in this timeless game

Wicked Grace and BeautyHave you ever wondered that there's a beauty behind all evil?Wicked Grace and Beauty23 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Well, there is one whose dark beauty is greater than most
Enter the Mistress of All Evil
The evil but yet graceful and beautiful Maleficent
Her wicked beauty is unmatched by any other wicked witch or evil sorceress
But her true beauty and grace lies within her demeanor
Quiet, mature but yet down right villainous and malevolent
Through the shadows of darkness
The great Maleficent summons forces of pure evil and sin
Though feared by all, her beauty makes up for her dark, sinister side
But is there really a kind person behind this wicked witch?
We may never know nor will we come to understand that evil is naturally dark
But one thing's for sure
When you look at evil a different way and in a manner most peculiar
Evil has its beauty and quiet grace among it
And the one who truly matches up to evil's beauty and grace
Is none other than the true Mistress of Evil herself
The graceful, beautiful and sinister Maleficent
1997For “Da Family”19978 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
A summer lust, lost
on crossed wires, labyrinths
sequestered by tombstones and curfews
spreading over a couch
into a wall of green,
invaded with drunk stumbling, or the police
Scars screaming secret secrets
the mute language of our pen knives
our hands, pulling sweet darkness crimson
We were infinite and cruel,
but we knew our place. Conquistadors
in dark parks, lording over squirrels and raccoons.
Storming fields and bridges, armed
with coffee, cigarettes, our ambiguous ambitions
Charred remains of afternoons
playing Icarus and Achilles
with broken hearts and cheese sandwiches
and the noise of a Polaroid snap

was found dead out in the middle of no where
inside of a great bowl, floating where the city lights don’t reach
said he died of suicide
he disappeared a week or so ago, fell off the face of earth,
I wonder what it was like, sitting out there with nothing
all around, just your thoughts, thoughts and the vast black
above littered with the shining stars, a sight that we forget
deep inside the city light pollution and all the rushing, there
out in no where, all alone, and staring at everything
one last time …
MurderDarkness has descended upon my soulMurder8 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
I hear sounds of agony all around me
His evil laughter penetrates my brain
I try aimlessly to escape his hypnotic hold
Like a pebble scratching my heart endlessly
He has weakened me with his words of authority
I can no longer fight this spell that I am under
I now hear nothing but what the voices tell me
I know what I should do but I don’t do so
My tongue speaks lies but no one sees
My eyes emotionless give no warning
My hands do act of their own accord
Your fate, I hold in my firm grasp now
The life you have lived, slowly escaping
Your world crashes into silent darkness
A whisper in my ear, “Well done my son.”

A melody bittersweet
When things changing keep
And those that keep now change
When their shape now is made new
Yet the dust ever more the same
Where old life finds it’s sleep
And new life cries
Time stands still for some
For others it then begins
Yet in the End the Tune Remains

Life will always go your way
Don't be so daft
To think it'll lead you astray
For life is a gift
Given to all
And most who get it
Will think it dull
They don't realize
How precise it is
They take it for granted
The life that they get
It has twists and turns
Its fast and slow
It goes backwards and forwards
But it always goes
It never stops
Until you get off
And your precise gift
You've had for so long
Is taken away
And its gone
LucyOnce upon a time there was a girl named Lucy,Lucy18 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Who gave time, love, and effort even she was busy.
She smiles, and laughs. She cheers people up,
And doing the right thing even without a doubt.
Days passed by the flowers fade away,
She looked upon the world that killed her day by day.
She went to the mirror and didn’t like what she sees,
Realizing the mistakes and the lies she’d believe.
She stood alone in the middle of the crowd,
Wanting to die but asking herself, “how?”
The girl who was used, forced, faked and played,
Picked up the rope, the pills, the dagger, and the blade.
Once upon a time, there was a girl named Lucy,
Who was seen with a rope, the spilled pills, and the dagger so bloody.
She wrote some notes about the guy and the girl,
And the whole society that destroyed her world.
She rested in the soft soil and the rain softly cried…
Once upon a time, there was a girl and a guy,
Who grieved their friend’s funeral since 5 years passed by.
