They'll never tell a soul.
They'll keep you standing up
When your body's had its toll.
Beat them in your anger.
They'll never scream or cry.
They'll let you vent your feelings
And never pester why.
Hide within their safety.
They'll keep you tucked away.
They'll let in just enough light
For you to know it's day.
His Last Kill"Open the window," he said to me,His Last Kill1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
one morning after the sparrow had died.
"Cast his feather, his copper wing,
his beak of honor, his perch of pride."
But I couldn't cast them - set them free -
to the breeze or to the rolling tide,
for the sky was static, the water - bleak,
and the conscience of my suitor - denied.
DeanThere is a boy named Dean.Dean1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I knew him for so long
before we were pre-teens.
Actually, we were born
days apart, just three.
Not long after
our friendship would start.
This boy was full of life
and loved to have fun.
When he was ten years old
the doctors realized
that between his
red cells and white
something was not quite right.
There were us few,
who helped him through,
just Sam, David, and I.
Of course, his parents,
and Tony too.
Remission was soon
we could see the end
this boy was so strong
nothing can go wrong.
He was healed.
He grew healthier,
he grew out his hair.
All the long, I was there.
He was my best friend,
and I was his wimpy little girl.
We would wrestle in the grass
we grew close so fast.
We made silly games in the pool,
we jumped on the trampoline,
which my parents never knew.
We played tetherball,
looked at stars and just talked.
I developed the biggest crush.
It was a different time then,
all I did was blush!
Of course I couldn’t tell him!

we fell in love
on the first of May
when the birds sang
and the flowers bloomed
in bountiful colors.
we ran away from reality
and created our own
wonderland, where we
were free blackbirds
finally learning to fly
with our broken wings.
the perfect day for
our birthdays, day
we started dating,
our future wedding,
seemed to be going great,
yes, I'll admit
that I took our love
for granted - I'm sorry.
our memories form the
silhouette that should
have you been by my side;
I walk side by side
with my own shadow.

The TruthHumans are naïve to think peace existsThe Truth23 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Optimism is another excuse
For those accepting the lies it consists
With blind faith even when all hell's gone loose
Humanity's fate is to be consumed
By the strife and malice you just ignored
The path of neglectfulness you presumed
With confidence, you'd never walk towards.
Observe, among your groups lies illusion
With those who're content, there's one full of grief
Their pain was hidden by your delusions,
But you still held onto your null beliefs
Marvel at the "peace" you believed was true,
But know someone's despair was caused by you
A Love, A ScarNo matter the angerA Love, A Scar1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
No matter the pain
Even with your dagger
Against my vein
Not one thought
Would enter my mind
To say I love you not
Would be so maligned
Yet here you are
Saying such things
To instill a scar
Oh my dear how it stings
You take it so lightly
These words are frightening
They leave me praying nightly
The pressure on my heart stifling
Please just let it stop
Stop saying those words my love
Or I will just drop
Disposable as a glove.
SacrificeOnce upon a time,Sacrifice1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I walked a thin line.
Then I met your heart,
And you became mine.
We were together,
For many happy days.
And although some you would teeter,
On the line you remained.
But one day you teetered,
And then started to fall.
I tried to hold you,
But I wasn't that strong.
So I took the line,
And tied it around your heart.
Because I vowed when I met you,
We would never part.
I finished my tying,
And stood on the line.
But I noticed my ties,
Starting to unwind.
The thin, little line,
Could not support our weight.
So I jumped down below,
And met my fate.
I know I broke my promise,
And I apologize.
But I would rather it be me,
Than you to die.

You find a ladybug in the house; and you stomp on it.
I see rain outside; I go out and feel it fall on my skin.
You see rain outside; you close the curtains.
Someone pushes me in a bar; I ask them if they are okay.
Someone pushes you in a bar; you push back.
I find I bottle on the ground; I pick it up and recycle it.
You find a bottle on the ground; you add another.
I see a shooting star; I point it out to my lover and we make a wish.
You see a shooting star; you say wishes are for kids.
Someone asks me for change; I buy them coffee and make a new friend.
Someone asks you for change; you curse at them and claim them to be a drug addict.

Broken Teardrops on my keyboardLaying here under the darkBroken Teardrops on my keyboard2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Looking up at the dark starry night
The stars glimpse in the dark sky
They remind me of your smile
The moon shines bright
The memory of your sparkling eyes appeared
I knew you're gone and I have to go
As I close the door behind me
I fell in temporarily love
With a stranger
He was a friend of yours
But I couldn't speak to him
He has a connection with you
But even if I fell in temporarily love
You're still all I think about at night
You're still my reason to the teardrops on my keyboard
You're still the song I keep singing to
I wish I can come back to you
But the world knows I can't
My broken heart still beats painfully
I still cry to the broken sound of my heartbeat
With her words. . . She would fight.With her words. . . She would fight.6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
on an empty bed.
Her eyes shone,
with tears of dread.
“Its all you.”
her eyes shut tight.
The words feel true,
they take away her fight
Her body falls into itself.
her hands clench her hair.
The phone lies on the shelf;
the source of her despair.
A voice so convincing,
“Its all in your head”
She cant keep from wincing,
at what's been said.
Her tears become streams,
her soul is shattered.
As her mind screams,
The silenced heart lays battered.
She can’t go on,
there is no use.
She’s just a pawn,
for his mental abuse.
A year passes by,
or maybe two.
She’s completely shy,
After all she’s been through.
No one could be whole,
after such an ordeal.
But she fixed her soul,
and made herself feel.
If not for the kindness,
she received from new allies,
would be her demise.
The darkness was deep,
but they showed her the light.
Her mind she would keep.
with her words. . . she
For my sister.Hey. datviperfangs.For my sister.1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Dont be sad please. I'm a bad little sister
so here's a poem for you
you've pulled through this far. Why stop now?
A sister is someone who loves you from the heart,
No matter how much you argue you cannot be drawn apart.
She is a joy that cannot be taken away,
Once she enters your life, she is there to stay.
A friend who helps you through difficult times,
Her comforting words are worth much more than dimes.
A partner who fills your life with laughs and smile,
These memories last for miles and miles.
When she is by your side, the world is filled with life,
When she is not around, your days are full of strife.
A sister is a blessing, who fills your heart with love,
She flies with you in life with the beauty of a dove.
A companion to whom you can express your feelings,
She doesn’t let you get bored at family dealings.
Whether you are having your ups or downs,
She always helps you with a smile and never frowns.
With a sister you cannot have a grudge,
She is as sw

What IfI’ve been thinking about tomorrowWhat If2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And what darkness it may bring
What overcasting shadow
Could blot out everything.
What if the skies should all fall down?
What if the leaves turn grey?
"What ifs" to fill a thousand years
All float inside my brain.
I’d like to see the sea again
But what if it should rain?
I’d like to feel unique again
But what if I’m just plain?
And then perhaps, the worst of all
The one I never say
What if tomorrow never comes
And I only have today?

I’m too good for that
I don’t need to run
I can stand my ground
I just have a few scars
And memories of past wars
Bloody and tired and about to starve
I don’t need you or anyone
These are tears of joy- I swear
Please just go away- no come back
I don’t want your pity- I don’t care
I don’t need you- I think.
What I hideI'm okay, I tell you this everyday.What I hide1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I'm fine, when really, I just want to die.
I hold onto my sleeves, to hide the scars underneath.
I smile and laugh, not showing you my darker half.
I eat constantly, but in the end i'm in the bathroom vomiting.
I laugh at your jokes, even though I cry when I call myself a hoe.
I tell you i'm just tired, when in reality i'm sick of guarding everything I hide.
I tell you i'm fine, when I'm actually contemplating suicide.

To make that golden mass take warning
And scare all brightness away.
LiesI thought that it was overLies1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The lies and misdirection
But the truth has been discovered
Nothing but pain and deception
My family loved you so
But they don't know the truth
About how you betrayed me
Your words were just a ruse
I want to be your friend
You seem to make that hard
The more that I want to love you
The more you open my scars
I tried to hide the past
From my heart and eyes
The pain is what drives me
Least I know I've tried
I can't help but feel
That there are more lies to come
But now that I know the truth
Everything we had, I know is fucking done
Without YouIn this world I feel alone,Without You2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Like I have a voice with no tone.
Walk by me like you don't see,
If only you could see how much it kills me.
It's hard to go by every single day,
When we tell each other we have noting to say.
But for me that isn't the truth,
All the words I want to say are there nagging like an aching tooth.
My heart has been shattered,
Just like my soul, broken and tattered.
There are so many emotions to the way I feel,
And I know that this pain is real.
Eventualy I will repair the pieces,
but that is only the beginning, the thesis.
I will show you though some how some way,
That I still love you to this day.
The Quiet-One's LullabyI am a wandering shadow.The Quiet-One's Lullaby2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You do not see me cry.
Out have my wings grown.
High do I fly.
Long have they wished to clip my feathers.
To render my will asunder.
They will know my voice.
They will hear my thunder.
Earth shall quake below me.
For I walk alone.
I will not let them taunt me.
Never, with my heart of stone.
For I am myself, and nothing more.
Do not forget it, or I will come at you like a winter’s storm.
I am the quiet one, who dreams forever more.
You have never seen my thorns.
One day you will know me, just like I know you.
I won’t forget you, so don’t forget me too.
