Even though I know you would want me too.
I just don´t know the place I should start,
how do I repair my broken heart?
Searching for direction
which way do I go?
A year almost over but
I have nothing to show.
I´m just treading water,
I´m getting nowhere.
still on the spot
where you left me last year.
I will love you forever,
it´s only you that I want
I should move on I know
but I just can´t.

rest here a little while longer with me
let me run my fingers in your long hair
I'm so glad that together we are free
you gave me a connection to share.
I had once thought you would leave
forever gone and I would be unforgiven
you said that I simply didn't believe
but you had never stopped being driven.
Feeling your skin now as it is bare
I can see the scars I have left on you
yet they're worn with pride and without scare
you loved me more than I ever knew.
Lay here with me, let me soak you in
into your warm, sweet scent I burrow
run your fingertips along my chin
wipe away my brow's furrow.
Yes, just as you've always done for me
through agonizing heartbreak and pain
even after you left me at that tree
after that, we both stood in sorrow rain.
I had been so foolish, so selfish before
I feared you would never take me again
but I ran hopeful and scared to your door
and it was a lack of love you couldn't feign.
A smile and kiss bound us together
A Garden Full of Butterflies.When youth was sun and cloudless skiesA Garden Full of Butterflies.5 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
and a garden full of butterflies,
and daisies waiting to be chains
in meadows where it never rained.
When lambs jumped joyous every spring
and I heard every bluebird sing
and all the adults told the truth
in the dream that was my youth.
When Santa granted every wish.
When my pond was filled with golden fish
and a cow leapt high to reach the moon
and Grampa sung a funny tune.
When paper dolls danced in a line
and sugared bread to eat was fine,
and adults never gave me rules
least not before I went to school!
When time was just an honoured guest
he flitted in – but took a rest.
Moving not, he watched me grow
in Happy-Ever-After glow.
All of this, it was my Truth
in lengthened days, where dwelt my youth –
when youth was sun and cloudless skies
and a garden full of butterflies...
Your smileOn seeking solace in your smile,Your smile1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
it soothed my troubled heart,
soon hoped that you would stay around
and this would be the start
of something good that happens when
a happy face beguiles,
a love so true
just me and you
all started with your smile.
Now I sit and just remember and
ponder for a while,
on laughing eyes so blue,
on our love so true
and how you made me smile.

ParadiseHis heart matched the beat of a magic song,Paradise3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
his chest was my pillow, and nothing was wrong.
The dark green of his eyes hypnotized me,
I felt it all the way to my soul, finally free.
His skin was smooth, my fingertips felt at home,
stroking his cheek, his arm, letting my hands roam.
Paradise isn't a dream, or a place faraway,
it's being wrapped in his arms, knowing I'm okay.

A poem by AFlyingPassion
I’m a… freak
a person who has no life,
a person who steal someone’s watchers,
a piece of trash,
a discerning person,
a c*nt, a
a mental person.
A disgusting person
A person who needs to get a life
A person who can’t drive
A person who has problems
Some people wish that I would die,
end up being FOREVER alone.
No matter what people end up calling me hoping to put me down, this is me and ME only.
Have a creative mind
A giggly person
A one of a kind
A lover of animals and family
Genuinely loved by different people
Notice me...I remember..Notice me...1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Those cold nights of isolation..
Those nights worrying about being hit or not....
Waking up in a nightmare..
Trusting no man.
I am stronger,
and I am older.
I am no longer under your roof,
I am no longer under your control.
I have no more bruises from your fists,
from your belt,
from your shoes.
I AM stronger.
I am living..
waking up in cold sweats..
worrying that you are near me..
scared that I would wake up with you near me...
terrified of being hit again..
and hoping to be noticed by you..
I am not that into football.
I tend to write about my feelings,
than say them.
I am not your spawn.
FadeToo ashamed to keep you aliveFade2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But too attached to let you die
You want to humiliate me? Fine,
I banish you to nothing at all
But I’ll remake you, change my mind
Again, you’ll be a part of my life
I’ll try to make it all alright
I’ll stay this way, sit and stall
But I’ll know you shouldn’t stay
Can’t fix the broken heart I made
In the end I’ll let you fade
I’ll be too tired to carry on
You set me on fire, then drowned me. I had wings.You set me on fire, then drowned me. 1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
They were strong,
Then the golden halo of flame wrapped itself around me,
enveloping my body,
and crushing my soul.
After it destroyed me,
the searing fire touched my wings,
and turn them into ash..
I have lungs.
Supplying me with oxygen,
and dispelling the carbon dioxide.
As every set of good lungs do.
Then you pushed me into the cold waters,
tendrils of freezing water cutting into my skin,
and killing those lungs.
I sucked it all in,
the water destroying my organs,
bursting everything within me,
and causing a panic that didn't help me at all.
You set me ablaze,
and then you suffocated me.
You destroyed my wings,
and ruined my lungs.
The two main factors in my life,
and the only ones that I was hoping to hold onto forever.
But you know what they say..No.
I don't care what they say,
your memory shall always live on within me,
and so with that,
I will never let you go,
and I hope you won't let me go..
passion playa twisted tortured path to climbpassion play1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
in forgiveness for the crime
branches tearing clothes away
exposing naked skin to day
wind and rain and sun erase
all but colors of disgrace
scars remain deep and true
never far from easy view
not to forget the way is steep
treacherous steps to promise keep
daunting task held open hand
grips far tighter than any man
no turning back dare relay
this unrelenting passion play
Bits of String and TwineI hold my heart together withBits of String and Twine3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Some bits of string and twine
I've gathered from the littered scraps
My life has left behind.
But twine it cannot hope to hold
This fractured heart of mine
And fill the hollow hole that you
Have cruelly left behind.
RealityThey say that all good things come to those who waitReality6 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But at what point in time does it become too late
To hold out for those dreams and flights of fancy
To stop raising the bar and upping the ante
When do we ignore our hearts and turn to heads
Tear down the tapestries till they’re broken threads
To place aside childish notions and thoughts
Meet boring people and tie a few knots
When do we say that enough is enough
And let our fantasy world crumble to dust

A world where my heart is at peace,
Where the world is standing still,
Where not a sound can be heard
And tranquility puts my mind to rest.
I enjoy the peace
And don't want to share
This world, where I can escape
From everything that bothers me.
Is too soon over;
Destroyed by the people
Who talk loudly
And bring noise to my tranquility.
I wish to return to the place
where my heart is at peace,
Where not a sound can be heard
And the world is standing still.
FrioEn un rincón oscuro de la habitación,Frio3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
aquel frente al frío algo más resguardado,
se encoge como una sombra, agazapado,
el triste dueño de un quebrado corazón.
No fueron esta vez los fuegos de los amores
los que a esta alma la tristeza llevaron.
No fueron esta vez sentimientos desertores
los que tras marchar al alma el dolor dejaron.
No, fueron los fríos constantes los que la quebraron.
Se abre en el muro de tosca mampostería
que al débil alma aislaba y protegía
una grieta echa por los sucesivos hielos
que resquebrajaron la piedra, y día a día,
se filtran por ella las penas y desconsuelos.
Esta triste alma se encuentra aislada
a la deriva en un mar de oscuridad
y de forma lenta y constante es torturada
por la fría carga de una gran soledad.

Waiting for me
She loses dreams.
I leave her alone.
I won her love
That burned down
In an empty room.
Rich KidsRich kids like to drive in fancy cars.Rich Kids4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
They like to roll down their windows
And let that pure AC fill the streets
Of what they consider “scum”.
They play their music loud,
So you can see and hear them.
With an arm hanging, they
Show off that fake smile.
“Sucks to be you.” They
Pool parties every night.
Yeah, they have it,
But we do we have?
You’re mad aren’t you,
When you see them show off?
They “cruise” down the street,
They might even come down your block.
You want to hurt them,
Tell them to leave,
And you’re envious that their lives,
Are so fucking easy.
But hey, what do you have,
That they really don’t?
You know what life really is,
That’s not a damn joke.
A rich kid doesn’t know,
How it feels to miss dinner,
And before you know it,
You’ve lost weight and you’re thinner.
A rich kid doesn’t know,
How to crawl to the top,
How to face fucking hardships,
My Bleeding PantomimeAll the shit brought upon me,My Bleeding Pantomime1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Everything you say is all a test.
I can’t go back and fix mistakes,
But don’t repeat and do my best.
My soul bleeds forever and a day,
My conscience tears inside out.
I wish that I weren’t born at times,
While others I want to rage and shout.
How much will you put me through?
I ask why? What makes me so different?
Why am I special, how have I wronged you in this?
Why with my dreams and thoughts, should opinions be so flippant?
Haven’t I suffered enough, through the eyes
Of my Lord, bringing along shame and humility?
I have learned to grow and move on, but
Forgiving myself; hard with my current culpability.
Actions long ago, all the more to
Not make me close to laudable.
Let me move on, can I forgive myself?
Does that sound possible, does that sound plausible?
I really hate what happened,
It left me both stressed and depressed.
Get off my back, let it go; it has
Been addressed; so let it rest.
I got another chance, give me

trapped, never coming out
Down below earth
Not having a soul
severed from the earth
never ending dreams
arriving up there
Wondering why i am here
Not knowing what happened
But i am not alone
There are faces of loved ones
That were forgotten
Welcomed arms opened
For now that i am with them
Showing me the way
To the open gates
When people's times are over
Never going back

Up ahead there is only darkness and snow
Where this may end is gone beyond the bend.
What will become of me no one can know
He cant see the beauty I see in him.
He shines like a star lost in the snow fall
It is all because of that silver limb
He cant see it-- I'm giving him my all
How could she ever love me? I'm a monster
I’ve always loved him, he is my winter dream.

The undead cheer
Rises from the gates of hell
The ones to which I fell
I keep them at bay
There will come a day
I can’t keep them inside

I know at heart what’s at stake
My life may be gone
But I leave you the dawn
