Welcome To My NightmaresThe frigid feeling of dark octopus-like tendrilsWelcome To My Nightmares10 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Clutching, grabbing, squeezing one's neck,
You begged, pleaded, watched the monster destroy him
Leaving him into a lifeless wreck
Unnerving whispers echoed, echoed
As your own reflection screeched with despair,
Stating the fact that it was all your fault
And yes, you were right, life isn't fair
Charcoal creatures crawled into the room,
Its hairy legs touched every inch of your skin
They creep up and up, higher and higher,
And you could imagine its psychotic grin
Run, don't look, RUN AWAY, your mind pounded,
Glancing back, a blood-thirsty beast is at your wake!
"Crap." you said, stepping back from the cliff
There was a hideous hiss of snakes
Shocked, looking down, tears on your face
As the one you loved most caressed his lips to another,
Jealousy and hatred seeping from your eyes
Finally realizing that 'us' won't last fo

Unearth the fear, unearth the mask
Defeat the army, defeat the power
Sharpest thorns where once was flower
I bit my tongue so hard it bled
Ferocity's fire will now be fed
Strike if you dare- I hold the strength
Mind unaltered by time or length
Scars are scattered over my skin
I am not shattered, you will not win
I am done hiding, I will not bend
Knock me down and I'll fight again
Le cauchemarRêvant par un soir d’aoutLe cauchemar3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Par une nuit si chaude :
La moiteur de ma peau,
N'avait pu subsister.
Les pétales tombaient
Un soleil noir, brûlant,
Dans cette lande stérile.
Comme pris par la Fièvre,
Au réveil d'un cauchemar;
Je demeure là, seul,
Dans l'ombre immortel,

And here below I hear their plea!
I've visions of the holy gate,
And the one with the key!
"A twelve armed Dragon brings pale night,
To grasp the prize it seeks to own,
Seek out its favor, Acolyte,
And make our presence known!"
"Two arms, with which to snicker-snack,
And fight with all the Dragon's hate,
One shall be lost, a fierce attack -
The talons, two and eight."
"Beneath them, too, but only just,
Another pair to wring and writhe.
They shake the hands of those with trust,
But secretly connive."
"Another claw of steel and clay,
Some say it once bore tender life,
Its rigid point will seed dismay,
While causing bitter strife."
"An arm soaked deep in filthy blood,
Borne of the deepest, lowest hell,
Its twin arm drips with slivy mud,
And rings a solemn bell."
"Our sister's talon, now its own,
To scrape and tear to its own end,
No dark escape it's ever known,
It's destiny's to rend."
"A muddled claw, with manxome eyes,
Yet curious in endearing ways,
Hangman's JigThree men dance on the gallows poleHangman's Jig4 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A murderer, witch, and thief.
Each one to pay for what they stole,
Each one to pay for grief.
A thief steals all that’s not tied down
For to him all belongs
Yet when his schemes have been undone
He’ll hang above the throng.
A killer steals what all hold close.
The life of those beloved.
The blood they spilled has been disclosed
And now their death has come.
A witch steals what brings most delight
Much more than death’s dear toll
For while a killer steals your life
A witch will steal your soul.
Now all three lengthwise dance a jig
The gallow’s creek for tune
The crowd will jeer, the grave be dug
And then the dance is done.
Ran AwayCome here now, Son. We have a gift.Ran Away4 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
This birthday, now, it is your fifth.
We think it’s time that you receive
A Pokémon to always be
Right by your side through thick and thin.
How does that sound? When you are ten
You’ll take him on an epic quest!
We wanted to give you the best.
So here he is! His name is “Foo,”
Your very own newborn Sandshrew.
Oh thank you, Mom, and thank you, Dad!
He’s the best gift I’ve ever had!
I promise I will train him right,
And sleep next to him every night.
Oh, I can’t wait to start the chase,
To get each badge to fill my case,
To travel far and see the land
With Foo there with me, hand in hand.
Look at him now, he wants to play!
He’s making such a funny face.
Come here now, Son, and welcome home!
Look at Foo now, how he has grown!
Did you have fun out in the yard?
You stayed out nearly until dark.
I do hope that your day was fine
But clean up now. It’s supper time.
Then we will get you into be
The VoidOnce in past there was a legendThe Void6 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Born in hell, alongside Death
Told by those who work with darkness
Made of nighttime’s only breath
Of a being dipped in shadow
Murder coursing through its veins
Eyes like never ending caverns
Wreaking mayhem for no gain
You will never see it coming
Only know that it was there
You will feel it as it whispers,
“Try to stop me, if you dare.”
Demons shun it from their numbers
Angels hunt it for lost souls
It’s a loner of immortals
Always planning its control
Those around it who know nothing
See a child, just a boy
But its victims see a monster,
See a Void made to destroy.
