Final EscapeHe told her once many times beforeFinal Escape10 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
That she was the only one
He walked out the door
She knew she had to run
He didn't love her
That she knew for sure
How in love they once were
Marriage was not the cure
He hit her too many times
He only caused her strife
Sick of these rhymes
No longer wanting to be his wife
Never again wanting to be hit
The blood poured from the slit
The Passionate WolfHow often is it you look at the moonThe Passionate Wolf6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
and wonder if death may join you soon?
I've often wondered this myself,
but that's another story on a different shelf.
Read these words; you may know me
and learn something new you never did see.
I am not a being of loss, sadness, or pain;
I've chased for so long and all in vain.
Never in my life will I tire of it all:
the twists, the turns, the writhing, and the fall.
I've gone through some hurt and come out strong,
Nobody else could care to come along.
I've faced my inner self and came out in bliss,
there was no better feeling in my life than this.
I've stepped onto a path that will never stop;
not until I come to that inevitable drop.
"Love" was something I never could hold,
Life seems bent to leave me out in the cold.
But that snow did teach me a valuable lesson
while I stood out there in moonlight iridescent.
Sure there's an empty place by my side,
but how many are willing to drop their facade?
They try to act strong when they wave me away
When A Lie FallsWhen you look in my eyes,When A Lie Falls8 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
you see the shimmering waves,
that wash true inconsistently,
with my spoken words.
How could you know,
the truth was hidden under the snow.
I am the reason, the cause,
for life to stop and pause.
To think my innocence,
sheltered me from greed,
is far from my worst deeds.
In the shell I made,
desperately crafted with jade,
I need others to see, believe,
the lies I sought to conceive.
I wanted them to enjoy,
the disillusions under the facade.
To have them drink and eat up,
the delicacies of the masquerade,
builds up what I made...
I am ashamed to have these structures,
built up with deceitful pillars and stones ,
but the truth is like a knife,
that would take away each and every life.
To let go, spill,
of reason that engraves my being,
would risk a bloody and gory seeing.
Soldiers and civilians,
who gave me their care,
and promised to give their all,
would rise to meet their unworthy fall.
I can't do that,
I am no murder.
To think of the lives,
and the dream bec
Grim AssistantI am silent as the nightGrim Assistant9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The grim only hears my whispering call
Darker and colder than a black knight
Soothing your blood is, of you I maul
Bittersweet is the thought of the flow
Swiftly it tears and opens like paper
Smirking as you slowly go cold
Your spirit and soul disappearing to vapor
Life is such a beautiful thing to live
Yet the scum leaves scars, wounds, and stains
Only welcome to those who truly strive
Curses and pain coursing through their veins
At times wishing to aid the grim's duty
To rid those who are not and never will be worthy
Recreating a world of peace, love, and beauty
If that were only my journey.....
MonsterBleed me dryMonster10 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Just to watch me cry
Your love isn't real
You don't even know how to feel
Anything but hate
And I despise this fate
I thought you were Superman with your cape
But héros don't rape
With delicate features
My pleas of mercy fell on deaf ears
They still haunt me after all these years
No one to confide in
I thought I had committed the worst sin
But the guilt is all on you
I know now that it's true
I remember so clearly the knife you used
My body beaten and abused
Even though it still kills me
I try to keep it a banished memory

soaking the world in it's cold grace.
Silent tears hidden within the downpour,
as I stare down at the graves.
Many a soldier who gave up his life,
fighting with beautiful valor.
Dying in honor with nothing to fear,
souls lost within all the strife.
A prayer and a poem is all I can give,
to those who now lay below.
With a silent salute I bid them farewell,
for within paradise they now live.

Tomorrow is near,
But tomorrow will never be here.
Today extends into forever,
Tomorrow is simply a tether,
To hold on to broken dreams
And to sew old seams
Wishing it would come either later or sooner
But never realizing, it will be neither.

A secret hidden for a while.
What else did society miss?
Her countless dreams of suicide bliss.
The one that made her smile that day
Would be the first to go away.
She is only now rile.
A secret hidden behind a smile...

Scars cut deep within
I stare into the dark
The demons have left their mark
They whisper to me
"Can't you see?
No one loves you
No one wants you
Cut, starve, die"
What they say is true
I'm going to lose
This fight, I give up
I have had enough
Can't you see this fight within me
See the wounds and injuries
Sinking into the darkness
Can't escape this madness
One more hit, one more cut
One more night and I give up
Tell me, whats the point to go on?
When everyone wants me gone?
These thoughts take over my mind
So don't be surprised when you find
My lifeless body on the floor
I couldn't live this life anymore

I'm sure this will soon be over
Let go of that last price of thread
That little bit of hope , that lucky four-leaf clover .
Get out the scissors
The thread has been severed
All contact is lost
Not like you care ,
Your tears look so fake .
Want something to eat ?
4 helpings of hate .
That's all you'll need here ,
No joy or content
With exceptions of fear
So lay down and lament .
Your life swirls away
Your heart turns to clay
With death you can play
Until we're repaid
But until that day
Here you will stay
Stop blabbing on
Your mind has come loose
Hurry up with that noose
It's all your fault
What have you done ?
Lock you in the vault ,
We reach for the gun .
We aim at your head
Your heart fills with dread
But there is that thread
We thought it was dead
He brought something with him,
It looks like your meds ,
You wake up still shaking
In your nightmare soaked bed.
The illumination of a darkened soulA lonely place had come upon meThe illumination of a darkened soul16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Darkness has descended on every part of my soul
Then came you
Not judging nor criticizing me
Not belittling or demeaning
The darkness had consumed my soul
The tunnel I traveled had come to an end
Then there was you
You reached in and grabbed my hand
You reached in and grabbed my soul
You reached in and didn't let go
You saved me
Through the darkness there came hope
It was you
A hallow place my soul had become
It was dying being smothered by pain
Then there was you
To the edge I had gone
To the top of the cliff I had climbed
Ready to hurl my lifeless soul to its death
Then came you
You are the reason my soul lives
The reason I have for life
The reason I have for throwing away the knife
You saved my soul
And to you I am eternally grateful

My AbyssI have heard Nietzsche’s quote far too oftenMy Abyss1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Gazed into the abyss of the forgotten
Become one with the darkness congealed
And laid my sins for those unconcealed
Salvation’s light is but a touch away
There to keep hell’s beasts at bay
Yet through my ignorance unforeseen
I am forever one with this ravine

Nie mówiąc nikomu
Spaliśmy w kartonie
Razem łowiliśmy w rzece martwe ryby
Marzyliśmy o tym jakby było gdyby
Chodziliśmy na budki po lody
Piłkę z Tobą kopałem
Na dziewczyny z Tobą plułem
Chodź czasem się kłóciliśmy
żałuję że nie było mnie przy Tobie
by odciąć sznur który Cię zniewolił
że nie wiedziałem

Time Slips AwayUsed to spend timeTime Slips Away3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Alone with myself
Would create things
Had time to just think
Now all my time
Is spent working two jobs
To make money
To pay all the bills
Day after day
And time slips away
Insanity at brink
Want to do somthing
Worthwhile and good
’Cause time goes so fast
It gives me the chills
Feel like I have
No true identity
No music or style
Don’t know what I think
Feeling average and boring
Sometimes shallow and dumb
I’m missing common knowledge
And lacking of skills
When I do get a moment
It’s usually wasted
So stuck on the shallow
Can’t step outside the rink
Want to start thinking deeper
And learn about the world
These would make me as happy
As caffeine and pain pills
Want to earn some respect
Have goals that are reached
So this burden can sink
Somebody help me
I know there’s more to this life
Just waiting to see it
Once I open my eyes

Yet judgment & labels have poisoned the watering hole.
Leaving humanity corrupted and torn apart.
We are in need for a brand new start.
. . .
We as people are to blame for our own demise.
Hiding in darkness it cannot hide.
Our destruction comes dangerously near.
The voices that cry, we cannot hear.
. . .
Religion has become toxic.
There is no home left here.
The scripture you read has been branded with lies.
We have sinned, although we have denied,
I pray for the day we are counted as equals,
will that day ever come?

I gave the gift of my trust to you.
You turned and betrayed me with someone new.
I gave to you the gift of my love for free.
You showed me hate; that was all I could see.
I placed my life in your hands on a chance.
You threw my life away without a backwards glance.
You came back without a dream.
All I did was look at you and scream.
You came back without any hope.
All I did was let you mope.
You came back without a life.
I let you suffer in your strife.
You turned around and ran away.
I was struck down the very next day.
Though the revenge did taste sweet like wine;
The worst price paid was the one that was mine.
You are still free and living well.
My revenge cost and sent me to Hell.
