That I would play through
Until I could hear
Nothing but you
I miss your words
That I already knew
Rereading them until
I only saw you
I miss your embrace
your fingers, they traced
Melting me until
I heard nothing
Was no one
And was nothing
But to you
I was everything.

fox eyes flash, demure glances
the forest (cannot) stop the
gleaming blood that’s racing through
my twisted cherry veins, (be)aded
skin and naughty thoughts laced with
tripping oak-ivy, lungs (contained) in
birdcage ribs; oxygen, escape through
half-parted lips, gasping breaths but (don’t) worry
I’ve got my rosary on; wrapped across
my scar-stained wrists, give me a stained glass
kiss and just (try) and wrap your arms
around my waist, try (to) embrace me like I’ve
never been held before; fragile paper skin
I’m having trouble breathing; (save) me from
asphyxiation, drowning in oceans within (me)
(because) my head is swimming, (I’m)
tripping on black velvet nightmares, sewing stars
into a (free) form sky and (baby), I’m floating
in the empty spaces of the universes (you’ve) ensnared
me with, encased in a little jar of glass, a pretty butterfly;
(lost) in a dress of pins and needles, disguise the dead with colour
CryingCrying doesn't mean what you think it means.Crying6 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Crying doesn't mean,
"I have a problem, come here and help me get on my feet."
That's what you think crying means.
But the opposite is true.
Crying really means,
"I have a problem, give me a second and let me sort my shit out."
Every time someone comes to me when I cry,
I just cry more, and I feel so embarrassed.
On the same note, I really hate crying.
Maybe you don't cry that way.
I'm fine with that.
But I feel like people cry for that specific reason.
Just remember, if someone really does need your help, they'll say so.
And if they're crying, they probably don't.
I cry because something happened.
And I need some time alone.
And I say this for your own good.
The next time you have a problem,
Don't come crying to me.
Because I know you don't want to.
Hopeful LoveHer hair flows gracefully around her faceHopeful Love6 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Eyes that never fail to sparkle
A smile that can make my mind spin.
Her voice sings like the birds in the sky
A hand that moves like waves,
Across her paper, creating gold with every curve
A mind that races,
But without even a thought for me
The brown of her eyes when directed at me
Could make me flush.
That deep hair so flawless
She's the person I wish to love, I wish to hold in my arms
Yet for her our paths can never meet
With her she wants my acceptance
But all I can give, is my support.
My heart will always have hope,
That she could one day feel the same.
Never lose faithWhen you give out a sighNever lose faith6 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
you give out your pain from your lungs,
when you blink slowly
I know you're hurt,
when your voice shakes
I know you're afraid,
when you look up
I know you don't want me to see you in tears,
that's because you're afraid
of being judged,you don't wanna share your pain,
you're afraid of being known
and the exposure of your other side,
because you've been judged before
you've been said "Get over it" when you can't
you've been told "You always act like that."
when you don't.
you've been laughed at because of little things
that matter to you,
they don't understand but it's alright,
you don't need negativity in your life,
you only need your faith
because it doesn't matter if you lose faith in them
just never lose faith in you.
I am your Wild CardI am your Wild Card.I am your Wild Card7 hours ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I'm what you need and nothing more.
I am your Wild Card.
Use me to win the war.
I'm the only one printed,
don't scare me away
before I get a chance to play.
All the things on the table,
without them you're not able.
It's so sad to see your last chip, last chance
fly from your greedy hands.
To a place it better understands.
You knew the game and played it,
please don't be defeated.
You took one too many chances.
I'll fight your losing battle
because I know you're not able.
Too much, too much, on the table.
I'll try to save you this time, if I fail,
that'll teach you not to gamble.
The odds are never in your favor-
they're not in mine either.
I was your chance
so I'll be the part of your deck
you wish you didn't need.
The handicap of most desperate plea;
I'll be your Wild Card
if you will be my Ace of Hearts.
I'll be your long-gone heartbeat...
If that is what you wish of me.
I am your Wild Card.
I'm what you need and nothing more.
I am your Wild Card.
Use me to win
Thank you Daddy for nothingThank you, Daddy, for the love you never gave to me.Thank you Daddy for nothing7 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
It has made me stronger and from you I am free.
Thank you, Daddy, for the smile, one so disgusting and fake.
It still makes me shudder, knowing my own manipulated mistake.
Thank you, Daddy, for the embraces that were cold.
Those arms that were strong held me in a vicious hold.
Thank you, Daddy, for the laughter that would turn to snarl.
Snarls that left bitterness and leaving a painful bow.
Thank you, Daddy, for the chastening that was over done.
How desperately I hated life and just wanted to run.
Thank you, Daddy, for the kindness we call fear.
I am by myself and your hatred to me does tear.
Thank you, Daddy, for absolutely nothing at all.
When you finally fall, I will stand tall.

That's it, I've had enough!
of continuing any longer, I'm so fed up
of this dark road
it ends only with no hope
I've tried and tried to break this
this harrowing mind of mine with no success
I'll try to describe the horror
in the day my soul is filled with anger and sorrow
at night my dreams take over
consumed in blood and war
I've seen none - but feel like I've been through them all
It's so graphic I can almost touch it
it's so raw I can almost taste it
the fear in the person standing at my side
I scream "Don't run - I'm afraid too! stay with me and fight"
but it's of no use
I stand, scared and alone
facing an army ten thousand times my own
I stare at them with my cold blue eyes
I shout "Come on then - I'll take some of you down before I die!"
My heart is strong
but I've not got much strength
I gladly give my life
but I'm not sure how much I've got left
That's just a dream
which reflects my day to day struggle
I've tried to keep it clean
from the guts and the rubble
From the blood

how late did you stay up last night
thinking of someone that doesn't feel

How many nights
have you lost sleep thinking about that person
and how many days
have you spent daydreaming about them?

Long Trials of Joey DreaA young boy of 20 or soLong Trials of Joey Drea6 hours ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Never knew how far he'd go
Trailed the tracks going too slow,
Bent his will to feel a moment's low,
Tried to hide the times he'd cried
And just decided in the darkness pride
To have spent all the days away
The train took him farther still,
Unwilling even to break his will,
He knew he had no other skill
Than to turn his thrill from something nil
And ignore the pills inside his sack,
To lack another concept back
He threw himself from the cart that day
He didn't choose the fate he should,
He chose the only way he could,
The one where it meant to never do good,
A coward's way to have never stood,
Where fates laugh at our graphs
Until they admit to never knowing half,
And time to bid goodbye to who never may

Dear YouOkay, we need to talkDear You7 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I know bygones are bygones
But I can’t get you gone
Out of my head.
I keep remembering what was said
And how it led to you leaving
And I can’t shake these feelings
And I just wish that you had stayed.
If only I knew what to say or do at the time
To remind you how happy you were to be mine
And how happy I was to be yours.
I kept thinking my pain would ease with time
But as these years went by my pain only grew
And I knew my love for you was real.
It’s been at least two years since we spoke
And nothing has changed: It is still real
And I’m still here
And every promise I made to you still stands.

There’s a chill
In this valley.
Last night’s last cold breeze
Bids us ya-sas
And gives way
Floats on down,
Spreads all over
Your flowering lips
And lights the lime.
No need for
Gives way to
Teal and then blue,
Stare in awe,
Gush all about,
A dam smashed open,
Ant hill stomped on,
But frantic too,
Stop and admire,
Breathe in this most
So dense with,
Power and tales
Gods and fables,
Soft white sands,
All I Can GiveThere's so many sad smiles in this placeAll I Can Give4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
So many hearts that have gone so long broken
So many masks, some on a single face
So many sad words, publicly unspoken
All i can give you is an emoji hug
All I can give you is a virtual smile
There's so much pain here, now I've caught the bug
I'll sit in my small corner all the while
So many hands that need a hand to hold
So many faces, masks that need redemption
I'd seek you out, but I am not so bold
I'll stare and smile while cursing your depression
All I can give you is my heart and soul
Dropped in your depths, and hope you'll surface whole.
EverlastingWe met one day in a place that none would think ofEverlasting8 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
In a way that would seem impossible
People don't see how it doesn't matter
How we grew to enjoy the other.
The laughter, the joy of hearing the other,
Waiting for one to come
To vast in the atmosphere that was brought,
Having this feeling of love.
Can anyone put down this feeling?
Will it continue to not be accepted?
Danger and pain lurks with every turn
Waiting, ready to strike at any given moment.
How deep and strong is that feeling?
Much could be said of what is wrong with this
That this won't last long that
This was all some prank or joke from the start!
...I don't believe that,
Despite how others continue to see it
I don't see this to be that
Even if it could be wrong or simple not right.
I am happy
His presence and being brings me joy
The way he teases
His persistent nature and perverse actions
All of it is who he is,
The one that shows his true feelings,
Ones that I can see truth in
For liars are easy to pick up on.
