Melancholy BoltsI've been broken beforeMelancholy Bolts21 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Laid sprawled out
Losing the key to my soul
Nothing but metal
My bolts ripping apart
Its not that bad
vacancy is my shelter
Open to another
Let the lips capture my gears
Present the oil of life
Electrify my circuitry again
Dim the world for me
Keep me close
And let us drift away
Build me up again
Before you kill me
Spit the word
Let me burn
Scream for you
Then turn dust
When the sun shines right
You'll see me floating around
Remnants of myself
Specks in a vacuum of space
I wait to rebuilt again
By the venom of society
Diluted into alcohol
To be abused once more
Will you rebuild me please?
He and Her HeartHe took her heartHe and Her Heart17 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
With a look of love,
Promised the world
And proved his word.
He held her heart,
Locked it in safe,
And gave to her
He hurt her heart
Before she knew it,
As she was afraid
To enter the code.
He cracked her heart
As her fluttered mind
Believed his words
As he begged trust.
He broke her heart
With a loss of respect,
Sending her home
Mending in tears.

Take the memories,

Cobwebs in your mind,
Dust upon your eyes.
Beauty of a SoulThere is the whisper of a soft voice,Beauty of a Soul20 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
a sound to silence the heavens.
Such kindness that is always expressed,
like the softness of a hand, one's gentle caress.
Your words, so mellifluous and smooth,
like an evening tide along the shore.
There is a rich beauty about you,
such an exquisite allure of personality.
You can take the darkness of ones work,
and give it it's own light.
It shines so bright to its creator,
their heart, mind, and soul feels right.
How do I express my gratitude,
other than simple spoken word?
I figure why not, let everyone see,
Your voice will be heard.
I gather all the knowledge I have,
taking notes fervently, diligently.
You might not realize how much,
that beautiful soul had left an impact.
How can I begin to judge you,
when you have no visual faults?
You can't, not a persons soul,
when you have truly seen The Gallery of Eve.
The FallYou took what I thought wasThe Fall22 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
the crisp, ripe peach of our friendship
and tore it apart with savage teeth.
I wonder what it tasted like
at the time, if you rejoiced
in ripping me to pieces
as I stood at a complete loss
for how to help you, how to get
through to you, and what I did
to deserve such hostility.
I hear you tried to apologize.
Tearfully, in fact, trying to get me
to answer the phone, all day.
That doesn’t sound like you at all
but if it’s true, I didn’t receive the calls or texts
because I blocked your number.
After much thought for a course
of action, I found my heart
was too tired of that particular strain,
the one where I give you my all
as a friend and you just look at me
as something to put up with, even if
you say you love me.
I guess this past spring
wasn’t the season for peaches,
because they all grew hard and stiff
and before I knew it I found myself
biting into stone.
Our HeartsOur hearts are so fragile,Our Hearts1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
But together they are strong.
Both of our hearts have been ravaged
To the point of no return,
But our broken hearts fit together
Like perfectly crafted puzzle pieces.
Our hearts have been melded into one.
We cannot live in absence of one another
Without the risk of crumbling into nothingness.
Our hearts twist together
Like those abstract sculptures in the city.
Our hearts will find one another
In even the most tragic of events
Just to comfort the other.
Our hearts will always beat to the same rhythm.
Drumming along to the songs of our love.
Our hearts are one.

The feeling of an empty soul
What in this universe can make me whole?
What do you feel when you are letting out your last breath
Do you feel anger, resentment, misery, woe?
Are these what you feel as you walk closer to death?
What i feel, what i transpire, what i hope to be, is nothing.
So that my mind can reach new heights, enlightment, heaven, a new spiritual existence.
Once i become nothing, all will be laid cease, i will not have to care
about a thing.
Let my mind become blank, my body laid bare, as i sink into the the abyess.
And become the enternal nobody.

bad memory, bruise on her knee that she had since she was three
and it never went away
she wished for popularity but knew she couldn't handle it
she had a boyfriend, but it was a dare so he split
and left her heart cracked
she had hopes of a man, not a boy
a kind spirt, and a body that didn't have to be toned
a nice smile, and lots of love because his heart would be honed
on loving her forever without ever relenting
their hearts intertwined and never repenting
something sweet, lasted the whole way
made it through college and birthed
two beautiful babes
died the same day, old in their hospital beds
hands locked together just like the first time
they got close and said I love you
children watched on crying cause mom and dad are gone
and also because of the fact that all of this happened to the girl with cracked heart

They are my world.
When I saw you for the first time,
I noticed those excited eyes.
Those slates of emerald that stare at me
And are waiting curiously for what I will do.
I see the love written in them
As it is etched there with much care.
They caress me softly and warmly so like your touch
As our glances meet from across the room.
I live my life waiting to see them again.
Those brilliant green disks that appear in my dreams.
They have such a blinding light held within them.
The light that guides my way.
I see the reflection of myself in your eyes
And realize that your world is also held within them.

I don't care if you've never even heard of Wings before
There is no way anyone has gotten to this point of their existence
Without entering one of those abominations
And tee shirts
And whatever's fashionably sinful this season
Confederate flags are in, I observe
Staring up at the south supremacy g-string they have tacked up on the wall
I quickly decide to leave that aisle
I'm not looking for the fall of the Union
I'm just looking for a bathing suit that maybe
Won't increase the shame of leaving mine at home
But as I pass by a top that reads
That's just the right size for a fourth grader
My hopes dwindle
I stop by the BOGO racks and grab the most modest suit I can find
Then hide in a dressing room stall
Where Satan greets me personally
By standing in the mirror and watching me as I change
I feel like a nun's first attempt at prostitution
The bottom shows too much leg
Unshaven and scarred by mosquito
Freedom Is NEVER FreeWe say we want to live in freedom,Freedom Is NEVER Free21 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
but freedom is never free.
How many times have the bound
been given freedom without
it costing a great price?
The new Americans from England
were not allowed to live a life in peace.
They were forced to follow rules,
not all fair, by a queen overseas.
Only a war gave them their freedom.
African Americans were forced to work
as slaves for the white man.
It took a bloody rain of lost lives
and a tiring war
to free them from their chains.
Sex slaves aren't free.
They're forced to be raped and molested
day in and day out.
They have to buy their freedom
with cash, or pay with their lives.
The child soldiers march out
into battlefields where they don't belong
and are put on the front lines to die.
If they run, they are shot down.
They're freedom has to be bought.
There are Christians in other countries, murdered
for their beliefs because you can't

They are but a fleeting wisp of smoke
The pain they cause in the morn
Makes me wish to keep sleep far from my eyes
But my body insists upon such a things as rest
