but instead, Dracula and
the angels of death decided
to rule my spiderweb chest.
But still, I have you to fill
in the emptiness with genuine
courage and a fighting spirit
like no other; fire poppy.
I'm a kind captain's daughter,
born under Canadian silver clouds.
I was meant for life at sea,
spotting islands from daddy's telescope
as he steered the wheel;
later, we'd be in the mess hall, eating
crab cakes and playing board games.
Yet one night, the good
captain steered the ship the wrong way,
got distracted by a siren,
popping out from under waves and
climbing atop a wall of seashells.
She had waist-length carnelian hair
and her voice was unlike anything
I had ever heard, impossible
to describe; a Greek lilt, an enticing
of chimes and Indian coins clacking
against the Taj Mahal palace floors.
That's how she manipulated him,
stole his heart and splintered it
with sharp Atlantis sea-glass.
I almost died, myself; but
I want to flyWhat's the use of trying anymoreI want to fly3 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Living in this world
Harmony and peace is foreign here
I want to live on in my dreams
Walking on the clouds, touching the sky
And never touching the ground
I want to fly so high
But I jump and hit the ground hard
And I remember being in this sensitive mortal shell
I want to travel the world and see it with the one I love most
And home wouldn't feel like a place
This person...feels like home to me
And the more I'm away from my dreams
Of lifting my feet off the ground
The more I see my tears hit the carpet
I'm stuck in this skewed vision of the world
Thinking it's horrible when I have barely experienced anything
I want to see Japan, England, Ireland, Italy. I want to fly all over. Don't you remember, my dear?
Why must I abide to one place forever in my life
If everyone wants to move out of this small town
That feels the same everyday
I wait and wait but if I blink too much it'll go by so fast
I want to savor my moment as a child while I can

Left you breathless.
Keeping you in pain.
Because I hate you.
I hate your kind heart.
I hate your sweet voice.
I hate your charming smile.
When it's not mine.

entwined in red silk
with my ice cold soles
on your warm calves
and our hands clasped
just above our heads
whilst I tried to find light
in those heavy-set eyes
but the closed curtains
blot out the moon
like it was less than nothing
and shroud this bed in
beautiful black bliss.
My fingers traced patterns,
unknown even to me,
on the sweetly soft skin
beneath your jaw;
tongue tastes the wine
you drank before coming to bed;
skin presses closer to
skin which radiates warmth
like nuclear winter
in the heart of my

Try and sing me a song."
Too nervous to talk,
But we start conversatin'.
Her eyes are beautiful,
but her voice is truly amazing.
She on her own shit.
We became so close knit.
Stare in her eyes.
She helping me focus.
She's getting hers.
Teaching her life lessons.
Live and learn.
She feel alone sometimes.
Well I'm similar.
I meet her in my dreams.
I visit her.

Everyone likes the nice guy. He's always happy and there for you when you need him.
Nobody loves him. He's always been seen as the friend so he doesn't get any further than that.

Is everything alright?
I want to see you today,
I just miss your face's sight,
Hoping that you're well,
A smile forms from my slips
Even though to you I can't tell
From my mouth "I miss you" slips
Wishing for your gentle touch,
Tears keep falling from my eyes
I just really miss you so much,
To the point of no more lies
In all of my beautiful dreams,
Even when I am too busy,
You appear in streams,
Of a wonderful memory
Why'd I take time for granted?
I must have been really mad,
This wasn't what I intended,
I didn't want you leaving me sad
What do you even see,
In a person so idiotic,
In a person like me?
Aren't I pathetic?
I just really miss you,
I just can't forget,
I want to be true,
I don't want to regret
Another day passes by,
On my mind is your smile,
Letting out a small sigh,
I'll stay like this for awhile
