Are running out
Like the future
That my heart
My black eyes
Her gorgeous march.
Breaking my hopes
Was our last
She ran away
My life turned grey
Living a plastic life
It’s easy to watch
An entire society
Like bricks in a wall.
Let me stay
Here with you.
I don’t belong
There to them
It was a mistake
Believe that I
Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust…And I walked towards youAshes to Ashes, Dust to Dust1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Though you were a different man
You were cold and stiff
Because you were just a man
In a dimly lit room echoing of dead silence and soft sobs
I held your hollow body in my arms
I cried selfish tears to myself and for myself
While I bargained with God

Drowning in silence, suffocating day by day
So many words that are being left unsaid
So many thoughts she would never dare to share
How empty and numb she’s been feeling inside
How she cries herself to sleep night after night
How she has to constantly struggle to see a point in her life
How she’s barely holding on, powerless to leave her hurt behind
Don’t let appearances fool you, a breakdown is surprisingly easy to hide
After all she’s been practicing at this throughout her whole life
Just give her a moment to put on her mask and dust off her smile
And voila, there you have a perfect illusion that everything is fine
Of course there are those times when pretending just gets too hard
When her carefully colored in laughter will fade out and crack
“Everything alright?” you might then go on to ask
“Sure” she’ll mutter, fighting to fit back in her disguise
“Anyway…” you’ll shrug it
BlurredDo you hear that sound?Blurred2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It’s your own blood’s drops echoing around.
Why is it dripping on the floor?
Why is it out of you at all?
The room’s spinning.
Sadly you recognize the feeling.
Should you maybe sit down?
You realize you’re already on the ground.
You start to wonder about the sudden moisture on your face,
But it feels like your thoughts are ghosts you don’t care to chase.
Your arm sharply catches your gaze.
Have you ever bled in such a disturbing pace?
The moment feels wrong,
But at least all that pain is gone.
Should you scream for help?
No, you’re used to handling your fragile self.
You try to stand,
But, shaking, find out that you can’t.
You drag and you bend
‘till you reach the bandages beside your bed.
You pray they will be enough
To put a pause to this soothing paradox of harm.
You won’t do it again.
Isn’t that what you’d said?
Do your best to ignore those whispers in your head
And try to focus on catching up
What good is a day...What good is a dayWhat good is a day...1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
In which you are the same
At the end
As you were when the day began?
That is called wasted time
Where you pass through without reason or rhyme
No anger, or sadness
But also lacking happiness
And when the night draws close
You pull up the covers to the tip of your nose
You’re too tired to think about the day
Nothing memorable happened anyway
Every second is a gift
Yet still we waste them as though they’re guaranteed
And look to tomorrow as a definite
Instead of only a possibility
So I shall reiterate
What good is a day
In which nothing changes
And you stay exactly the same?
Eisblumenschön nur auf kalten FlächenEisblumen1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
wo die Seele erfroren verhaucht
unberührt nimmer verläuft
glitzernd in einsamen Nächten!
wo dunkle Vögel tot erstarren
und pfeifende Irrlichter narren
zwinkern blaue Augen kristallen
im Lichte zu erstrahlen
kein Kuss der töten darf
denn ihre Haut ist Reif
Herzblut macht sie scharf
denn ihre Seele ist Eis
ihr prickelnd Federkleid
leuchtet ohne Mitleid
von Ferne nährt sie Sternenlicht
und transzendente Adern
lebten bloß ein Augenblick
Liebe zu erfahren
im Tanze verträumen sie
stets auf der andren Seite
ihr Lebenshauch ist Phantasie
ihr Tod: die Sonnenseite

Screaming at the sea
Reversing your tides
Setting yourself free
How will you come back
When you are empty
Will you choose to flee
Happy Birthday"Happy birthday!" They said,Happy Birthday2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
"Thirteen!"- I turned red
As the whispers I heard
Made me wish I was dead.
"So, Is she okay?"
"It's no cause for alarm.
If we lock her up,
She won't do any harm."
As I lay awake in my hospital bed,
Those words kept repeating:
"Happy birthday!" They said.
Kylee - The Teen Muscle BeautyKylee - The Teen Muscle Beauty3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I have met another lovely lady
Causing my heart to beat like crazy
She is the teen muscle beauty
And her wonderful name is Kylee
Kylee is so beautiful and bulky
Making her into a super sweet cutie
She's been working out with all that muscle
Because she really knows how to hustle
Her muscles were also the source of her attractiveness
And why she is filled with power and beautiness
She had me entranced by her muscular beauty
And she is also so lovely
I'm also attracted by her "Hulky" appearance
Her green shirt and purple pants gives her an attractive fragrance
With a dash of her muscles, she's a really beautiful girl
and that makes my heart want to dance and twirl
I understand from Kylee's wish
And her muscles are something she truly cherish
I'm glad those muscles saved her from agony
Because I understand her past from when she once had muscular dystrophy
Kylee is a very beautiful friend
And someone you can always depend
Because every time I look at her
She's like a beautiful cat with an
Death's HeartacheThere is so much distance..Death's Heartache3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
So many words..
Yet, with but a look I can see
The words you wish to free.
With just a look
Everything is clear.
So much sorrow
So much pain
I know you wish to hide it,
To save me from this truth.
You wanted to keep it secret
But it's now in plain view.
The Eternal Vow...
The greatest crime committed
Will echo through history
The day a mortal fell in love...
With true misery.
My Lady Death...
Dark ThoughtsDark thoughtsDark Thoughts8 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
They're coming for me
The dark thoughts inside my head
They are changing me
Harming me, consuming me
The thoughts that blacken my soul
I'm fine, I'm fineAnger bubbles up to the surfaceI'm fine, I'm fine9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Barely contained by a smile
One wrong word and I might snap
Tread lightly around the fire
I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine
I’ve contained it all this long
To tell anyone would be weakness
And I need to stay strong
I bottle it up, and restrain myself
Never let my cover be blown
I don’t want to hurt anyone
Which means my anger can never show
I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine
I just need to hold on
I’ve tried to hold back the flame
But my strength is almost gone
The rage beats at my resolve
Tears it down with no mercy
I stare at the mirror
My hatred glares back at me
I’m not fine, not fine
I now stand here, broken
I thought I could stand against it
But the anger has left me, beaten
FaithlessGive me advice if you want,Faithless1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But don’t tell me what to do.
If I wanted you to fix it,
I would have asked you too.
Do they think I’m pathetic?
Do they think I’m weak?
Do they think I can’t handle life,
Because I’m fragile and meek?
How can I make them understand,
I can handle my problems my way?
I just need a lending ear,
Would it kill them just to say:
“You wanna talk, I’ll listen,
If you wanna sit in silence, that’s fine too.
If you want to cry, I’ll understand,
Just know that I’m here for you.”

But was born of my dreams;
Breathes in the clear air
As he buries me deep.
'It is fitting,' now I think,
'That he exist in two planes;
After all, he is the lover
That bore not one, but two names.'

Born a failureThere are always these accusations about how you feelBorn a failure2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
About what you will and what you have been
Once used to wonder what it takes to make them believe
But now gave up, locked in and threw away the key
Living to be a failure, never good enough
Words that keep echoing, so cruel and so rough
"It’s must be me" you think to your reflection
"Maybe I’m just not worthy of their love and affection
Turn away your back and blow away my past
It’s ok, i get it, your judgment I do trust
You are right, I will never be as expected
Though I should, I know, I give you all credit
After all I am what you taught me to be
Completely worthless, a captive of guilt
Cause I could never be redeemed
Of your dreams of me that I’d never come to meet
If only I could make you believe
It’s all I did and all I’ll live to need"
DreamsThey ask me why I go to bedDreams3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
when I could stay up and have a god time
I tell them I'm tired, and that I need to rest my head
But I go to sleep for the dreams
Anything can happen, this I know
for I control the dream
And everything will go
the fantasies, the fiction, the happy things
Never let it be said that a dream is a waste of one's time
for a dream is a reality in waiting
A dream is a dream, and this one is mine
anything can happen
A Burdened Soulmy heart has been taintedA Burdened Soul3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
by darkness and dread
by the death and the pain
that rattles my head
my lips have been poisoned
by lies and by lust
by verbal stones that were thrown
and shattered my trust
my arms have been weakened
by loads I can’t count
by burdens too heavy
tasks I can’t surmount
my soul has been wearied
by panic and worry
oh lord save my soul
oh please won’t you hurry
Endless DevotionGentle words so tender and sweetEndless Devotion3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Soft touches so light and meek
Is this real?
Or just a false reality...
Your eyes are so kind and true
Spilling out emotion so pure
Are these feelings real?
Or just part of a virtual world
Can I love you...
Just as you are?
Can this moment truly be real
Or has my imagination gone to far?
Warm fingers graze mine
And I know without a doubt.
Living in any world
I would figure this out.
These feeling truly exist
And they fill my heart to the brim.
Wither we live or die
I will love you to any end.

No matter the years that pass us by,
time has had us hypnotized.
Glorified are the notions of 'forever' and 'tomorrow',
for one never existed, and the other may not follow.
But still, (I'm still), and time seeps in through the cracks,
whipped and chained against the tree of ages,
my hair intertwined with glass.
Your drunken eyes, glazed with wanton passion.
Oh how the time does fly with this tell-tale obsession.
No words. Just torment.
No love. Your warmth lying dormant.
And no matter the time of day,
It is you who holds untimely grace.
Has this become such
(Request) Campfire(Note: Heart and Rattle are humans here.)(Request) Campfire2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
In front of the campfire, Heart and Rattle are sitting by each other. Rattle was telling his jokes, which he was well known for. Heart loved his jokes. She never really appreciated his jokes when they were enemies before, but when the crush between them grew, she started to notice his jokes and the joy of laughter. The good laughter. As Heart remembered her old times and ways, Rattle looked over and noticed her teary eyed. "You ok Heart?" he asked.
Heart looked over at Rattle and hugged him, slightly crying. "I'm just so sorry about how I acting back then... You see, I like being with you now, I love you!" She sobbed.
Rattle was a bit surprised about this sudden sobbing outburst from her. He petted her head to try and calm her down. Heart looked up at him with tear-filled eyes. "You don't have to worry about that anymore. That was the past." Rattle said with a smile and he hugged Heart.
Heart lightly smiled. She lightly tapped Rattle on the nos

my heart has been eternally deceived
for they do not wish to come back
nor have they left a track
Everything seems to be dim
and the world so cold and grim
please come run into my arms
and I promise that I'll do no harm
All the things you touched now shake
as I hold them close while my heart quakes
water runs at the sight of your stuff
no longer will I be deemed tough
Time seems never ending
as my story unfolds with you missing
but it's hard to stand and take a path
without you here I've nothing but wrath
Hades himself shall even fail
if he dares to ever continue your tale
how can I stand and why do I bother
when here lies the tomb of my grandfather
