What am I?I thought I was the deepness,What am I?6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
the blackest cold of space
in an endless forward race
Perhaps I was the silence,
the space between the stars
A hollow, aching stellar wind
of burning cosmic scars
I pondered on the echoes,
to ask if they were mine
That slowly spreading whisper
from the very dawn of time
But now I know I'm empty,
like a singularity
And all my deepest, saddest thoughts
never escape from me.
The Music Boxthe lullaby accompanying a ballerina's skirtThe Music Box17 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
a mechanized grace that once brought comfort
now elicits cold tears that steadily descend
their way and dampen tissue alabaster skin
the whimsical notes absorbed help create
a wistfulness that does little to dissipate
a futile wish to reverse the hands of time
to before events that scarred the mind
orbs of sorrow remain transfixed
by the movement of repetitive twirling
but peace it lent to ears once innocent
intensifies the sting of the bittersweet
in a mind’s wandering and habitual retreat
trying to ignore the ice
facilitating the descent
the fragility of hope exemplified in the contours of the figurine
the intricacies of life conveyed in the painted details of her body
the sorrow in strife evident in the music's haunting quality
the finality of death obvious whenever the motor ceases to be
That old houseThis was where we stoodThat old house53 minutes ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And this was what we did
We played like we were grown-ups
We laughed cuz we were kids
We stayed out till the sun went down
We waited will it went black
We laid out on the roof all night
And talked till it came back
I sit and remember all we did
and all we couldn't do
I'll tell it to my kids one day
And I'll never forget you
AloneI'm alone,Alone5 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Yes, I have friends and a family,
But are they truly who they are?
Are they what they say?
I thought so,
But they're not,
I am truly forever alone.

Each day, they
grew and grew
And one day
they would break through
And so beside
that wide blue sea
a brand new tree.

the plight of time he tried to dismiss.
The figure before him stands still.
That a remembrance of a bitter will.
His eyes are dulled as they share a gaze,
yet what he saw still did not faze.
The dust was brushed from his grave.
A dozen lilies was all she gave.
What else did occur that day?
Another life was given away.
He left his silent prison of stone;
he stepped into a light, a hand clasped in his own.

The TruthTo be honest, I knew nothing.The Truth4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
In every false smile, I hid my ignorance.
Being earnest, I never did anything.
Without truthful glances, and a lack of temperance.
If I had been modest, I would have changed everything.
Instead I was a pest, a filthy annoyance.
SmilesI kinda find it funny how no one notices,Smiles5 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The person that was "fine" yesterday is probably dead today,
You just look at the fake smile that's on their face,
Don't you realize that they're wearing a mask?
Probably not since you haven't bothered to help them,
They're suffering but no one notices because they're smiling,
Smiles can tell lies too,
Don't you see their dull, pain filled eyes?
How there's suffering in their eyes, you don't see that?
Of course not, no one does,
Because all we have to do is smile and you'll believe every single lie we tell you,
They're suffering and need someone to help them,
They might push you away at first, but the truth is they want you to fight for them,
But no one ever noticed, so they lost their fight,
That boy or girl that you hit earlier is probably getting abused at home,
Stick up for them and help them,
Because everyone deserves that,
But you probably don't care, do you?
LongingThe longer we are apart, the harder it is for me to care about anything but you.Longing6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
So many times I wondered if our love was real, if it was true.
My head is filled with thoughts about how things could've been between us.
I wanted only a relationship filled with love and trust.
Your smile warms me to see it, even in my memories.
The person you were calls to me in my dreams.
You promise forgiveness and redemption, and I will always follow.
When you're around, the bitter pills I'm given are easy to swallow.
I love you with all my heart; there is no doubt in my mind.
I will always remember you as smart, funny, and kind.
All I want to do is wrap you in my arms and hold you tight.
And tell you I will always be yours, no matter what the price.
My DownfallTear my heart outMy Downfall9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Break me down
Burn the rest
and watch me fall
Rip me apart
and try hearing me cry
Deeper and deeper
Death pulls me under
I say my goodbye
and quit screaming your name
I open my eyes
blinded by light
and greeted with smiles

Without choice and end the same way sadly.
You can't pause them and enjoy the delight
As everyone and you too desire.

Scrawling out with the blood of my heart on the prescription pad,
“You seem to be doing better, I'm glad,”
“Call me if it starts to get much worse, and it gets really bad.”
What gave him that impression, I wonder,
of a false stability.
Was it my bright, cheery smile?
Or the laughter that I threw around to make the appointment worth my while?
I am a medical anomaly
I dare to challenge psychiatry.
as you question my abnormality
the bleeps, the irregularity
of my mental state; the errors of my personality.
None of my angles are congruent
I speak a language, of which, you are not affluent.
I'm a rogue, a freak,
Medication will not cure the levels of my peculiarity.
I'm a poster child of the pharmaceutical companies
when you're warm at night,
when you flip the switch, and turn out the light.
Question my sanity;
if I'm thinking with clarity;
There's no solution,

You sit in the dark
Hearing in your head
That you have no place
No one wants you there
You have a right
In who you are
How that can be
When so many people
Are telling you
You must believe
What makes you
Who you are
It takes time
You will find
What makes you
Only you can

to rise and destroy
our fish full of fears.
Turquoise dolphins leap over
our hearts and the hue-
mans around us play
the role of the scientist,
believing they have
discovered so much.
But don’t forget your body
is a vast place
and you must find your-
self before others can find
your most hidden beasts.

A second glance
When you walked by
A average guy
With dark glasses
Covering his eyes
The stage was never yours
In the darkness
So you would
No longer be
Just a average guy
Behind a monitor screen
Would fly across the keyboard
As your words traveled
Out into cyberspace
On other monitor screens
Like never before
The stage was finally yours
You began to perform
More and more
To the ones
Closest to you
Just a average guy
With dark glasses
Covering your eyes...
