Saying "Come see what I see"
"We'll take you to lands far, far away,
And let you become someone else for a day,
Sit down and we'll tell you a tale
Trust us we never fail"
Even though I should really say no,
I always say yes, take me, I'll go,
Though they sometimes cause me strife,
I've discovered that you haven't really lived life,
Carried a bridge across the Shattered Plains,
Survived a High Storm in the torrential rains,
Become the most feared pirate in the land,
And won the most beautiful woman in the worlds hand,
Lived an Age in the Wheel of Time,
Become the Dragon Reborn and walked a thin line,
Relaxed for a day in the Shire,
Walked to Mordor and faced the fire,
Sworn your oaths and stood on the icy Wall,
Sat at court and watched kings fall,
Who will I choose today? Where will I go?
Pick up a book you'll be glad you did so.

The lights are laughing as I look upon them
From my house drenched in blue silence
Untouched in the highest of skies
Like crimson swaying embers
Eating a yellow page from an old book
Smoldering thoughts forgotten until now
Seized with the desire to awaken
Lighting up the night sky with passionate flames
Even when I used to cry I could hear them echo
In the depths of my iron-clad heart
Carrying the burden of darkness in my souls arms
I’ll chase dazzling dreams to the ends of the horizon
Remembering what I’d lost
In the flourishing cutting rain
But I am remaining because of that sound
Even in the tremendous gray clouds
I am never lost if I can hear that laughter
Like the constellation that connects the dots
Even inside my shell I was beautiful to someone
Unique in all the world
I don’t have time to pity my past self

The lights shining against my eyelids,
passing with time,
my feet held to the ground,
by nothing more,
than an invisible force,
All I can control,
is my faith,
that it will not fail.
De BrandingIk wacht als een zandkorrel,De Branding4 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
klaar om opgespoeld te worden,
omvergeschopt in een zee van liefde,
blij om mijn machteloosheid,
wacht terwijl de dag eeuwig is,
en de nacht onmetelijk langer.
Elke golf neem ik kwalijk, die
me niet meevoert, ik
wacht op de dag dat er niemand meer
op mij ligt,
geen zielen die over mijn lijf
door te dringen tot mijn kern,
het schuim ligt mij al aan de ledematen,
ik voel de branding
als een verlangen dat steeds
vergaat op open zee

in your ocean tide voice.
crash into me. hurtle your stones
and sea shells
against my skin and make me sway.
hold on to me
with your straying grasp. collide
your runaway train into mine.
don't end the sentence of my existence
with a question mark.
sleep with me.
give me space-time-synesthesia
so i can see the clock encircle me,
the calender sheets.
so i can recall what you have to do last tuesday
and did tomorrow.
when i see you
i really see you
walk with me.
slip your twitching fingers into the spaces
between mine. we may not fit 'perfect'
but we fit 'all right.'
dance for me.
bend your body in
skeletal origami. take me by the hand
and fold me a paper crane.
peel me away, layer after layer
till i am too light to fly,
blow in between my folds and set me
your thunderclouds and make me
sway. sway, to the breeze of your
starry night meadow. silence your oceans
and still flinch at the deafening roar.
hush my hurricanes, hush.
Silver the Hedgehog poemThe hero's body is as white as snow, with telekinesis like iceSilver the Hedgehog poem4 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
The topaz irises in his eyes glow like the Iblis flames in his way
The way he shooed a flame away did not seem too nice
He hopes that the fire will be extinguished for good someday
He stays with his feline companion and doesn't want her to be harmed
His wrath for the cause of the frightful future seems to get bigger
He gives a young princess a blue emerald as a good luck charm
Time to travel back in time and track down the Iblis Trigger
He turns around and sees another hedgehog, ready to strike
The foe stands up for the blue blur, despite being neutral with him
Soon, the hero will learn what the "Iblis trigger" really is like
It won't be long now until things get extremely grim
He hopes his journey will have a helpful resolution
His blue counterpart has no idea what he was complaining about
He shall stay awake in his dream of an absolution
His name is Silver the Hedgehog. Don't wear it out

Watches her life
From her fingers, because
We’re all just running in circles
And nothing makes

Sadly, I cannot say.
Even the suicidal fears me
And that's not okay.
While Life is everyone's favourite buddy,
And I'm the odd one out,
What she has given, I must take
Accept it! I want to shout.
Death isn't bad, it's sometime's a blessing.
People have suffered and I bring them
To the land of Eternal Joy, while Life
Keeps people alive in in the world of hardships.

OasisMorikoKamiyaOasis7 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
I walked into an Oasis, meeting my forever
Happy to be out there, together
But perhaps our hearts didn't fall in sync
And there they left in a blink
Confused, appalled, I felt this truly
But how could one abandon another so unruly?
How can one erase another from its mind?
Even if the layers were thicker than man, space, and time!
But they're too far gone for me to ask,
And beaten and heavy-hearted they left me to last
I guess somethings I will never understand,
But I will say that it isn't as beautiful on this pretty Oasis land

nim się z nikim nie podzielę.
On stanowi moją własność
i żeby była jasność...
Z książęcego on jest rodu,
niebiańskie ma pochodzenie.
Mika'el... gdy przetłumaczę:
"Któż jak Bóg" - dosłownym brzmieniem.
Pełnym światła wojownikiem,
mądrym i odważnym przy tym.
Ognisty miecz w ręku posiada,
ze złem szybko się rozprawia.
Kocha prawdę i wybacza,
opieką słabszych otacza.
Bywa często zamyślony,
sarkastyczny i skupiony.
Umysł jasny, precyzyjny,
wyczuwam... głos decyzyjny.
Czasem słowem intryguje...
czas refleksji następuje.
Michał... słodkie "ał" imię zamyka,
z rozkoszą przed "ch" na palcach umyka,
które uśmiech nieśmiało rozdaje
i przed "Mi" z godnością staje.
"M" - spółgłoska wargowa, nosowa...

When I awake, and not in pain
Though I have grown,
The only thing I’ve known
Is nothing will remain
There was blood, I recall
Splattered on every wall
Screams ringing in my ears
Demons awakening every fears
As Satan caused my life to fall
“you are not, in the least,
Excused from our blood-lust feast”
Horned messenger laughed in my face
Causing me to cower in disgrace
“for you are destined to be the Beast”
Shades, they stalked me
And tried to break my sanity
Eventually, from under my bed
They took my body, for soul was dead
And to think I thought I could ever flee
Then my shade elsewhere did dwell
Inside the hole entitled hell
The lake of fire, heaven’s prison
Allowed no life, or peaceful vision
That is all I can forcefully tell
Then out I crawled,
Spirit eaten and mauled
To my corpse return
So demons, I could burn
And to their graves be hauled
Life now a war
I feel like a whore
As people claim they can help
Yet out of

I'm not of this earth.
I've always felt this way,
Ever since birth.
I tried to fight it,
I have to admit.
I couldn't find my way,
To make myself fit.
One day, I stopped.
One day I gave in.
I didn't fight anymore.
I let the darkness win.
I felt no regrets.
From then I started to change.
It felt so natural,
Instead of something strange.
I found who I am.
I am to be heard.
They listen to me,
Without having spoken a word.
I have the power,
To make them do as told.
No one can escape it,
healthy, sick, young, nor old.
I have the power,
To jump up and fly.
Then it hit me,
Can I die?
I have the power to live forever.
I can take the life from you,
drop you to the ground,
Leaving me anew.
I am weak-less.
I can't be beat.
No matter who I face,
They taste defeat.
I can't be stopped,
don't even try.
If you anger me,
You'll most certainly die.
