And breathed life in to my world
You told me that you loved me
And you’ll always be my girl
You told me that you loved me
That I’m such a special man
You told me that you loved me
And we were part of His plan
Now you tell me you don’t love me
But you still let me believe
You tell me you don’t love me
And you never let me grieve
You tell me you don’t love me
That we can only be friends
Then you tell me you still love me
But never speak to me again
I QuitCrackedI Quit1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I hear it all
What you screech
Every line repeats
Until I fall in my defeat
Can I ever stop
The barrage of words
That crumples me down
Onto the floor?
What gives you the right
To drag my face through dirt?
Why, oh why do I listen to you,
Who brings so much hurt?
Your words bring tears,
Heat rising to my face.
I run out in humiliation,
Sobs coming as I race.
My heart is bleeding
My ears are ringing
My chest is pounding
My sorrow astounding
I can't take it
Enough is enough
The smile is cracked
The mask now gone
I'm finally beaten
Is that what you want?
I'm just a human
I'll never live up
Never reach what yo

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

Secrets and PromisesI am here because of the past,Secrets and Promises6 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Because of a promise that is endeavored to be kept.
I can only hope that this dread won't last.
Since the past is also what's killing me the most.
But no one knows,
What goes on in my head.
The painful woes,
That have not yet gone away.
Secrets that can not be shared,
Buried deep, and very far.
Only if anyone cared,
But God knows no one ever will.
Hiding the truth may never feel right,
But I am only doing it for the best.
I am not going to win this fight,
For what is left of me, I'm broken.

A Song for the StarsUnder the night sky, here I standA Song for the Stars1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To seek for beauty, peace and love
I once have known in human's land
But I now see in stars above.
Beneath the heavens, I look up
To see the wonder of the stars,
Wishing the night would never stop,
That I could always gaze at Mars.
After midnight, I'm still awake,
Thinking of stars and something else -
You whom I love, for goodness' sake,
And my love - none but stars can tell.
The constellations - they remind
Me of your eyes that I hold dear
In my memories, in my mind
All while I look at stars so clear.
In the midst of dawn, I still stand
To feel your presence once again,
Like when you roamed the human's land
When life was great and free of pain.
Early morning, I now look down
To think of you and other stars;
Although I may not see them now,
They're still there, like you always are.
Widows FearsIn a graveyard a widow standsWidows Fears3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Remembering her lover who lays below
Under the stars
Weeping like a willow
The sky starts crying
In sync with her tears
This is why she had quit trying
Why she’d fallen into her fears
Keep your head up.The weight of the world is sitting on your shoulders,Keep your head up.6 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
crushing you down,
and making you smaller.
The more you struggle,
the heavier it gets.
My advice is:
Keep your head up.
When it pushes,
And when the world gets the message,
you will fly.
And when you fly,
you will finally understand what it means to be alive.
And that is,
to keep your head up,
and look at the challenge without flinching,
and once you rein dominance,
you hand it over to another that is giving up.
No one deserves what you previously felt.
See you later~Cold wind biting my ankles,See you later~6 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
causing my jacket to flow in the current,
a river of air,
traveling around my body,
until it lifts me into the sky,
higher and higher,
taking me away from your hands,
and taking me into my own.
I will see you all later.
I shall be gone,
and in that week,
I will find myself..
It Hurt My Heart.You were here....It Hurt My Heart.3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Now... You're gone....
I don't understand what's going on...
The tears are there...
The shakiness too...
I'm screaming inside. "It's not True"
I can't think Straight...
My mind is a mess...
Why do I feel like it's a stressful test...
I swear my heart just turned cold...
One made of rock and stone....
But not even I would have known...
Who thought this could happen...
A life taken away like that...
It feels like someone just beat me with a bat...
All your friends care right now.
And yeah we're all crying...
And now, its like the stars brightness is dying...
It was so fast...
Who could have thought...
Or is this just a sick joke we all bought...
I still don't believe it..
And I refuse too...
My soul's crying. "This isn't true!"
I don't know where to start...
Or where to even end....
But you were a good friend.
And if the story is true...
Then I wish you well,
As I hide in this cell,
Carry on, you were strong!
And I'll remember you like you aren't gone.

Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust…And I walked towards youAshes to Ashes, Dust to Dust4 days 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
Sorry if it s boringI´m sorry if you all think my poems are just too sad,Sorry if it s boring1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I´m sorry if you think this but that is just too bad.
I´ve never had feelings as strong as this before
I apologize , really if it´s a bore!
Living in a nightmare for two and a half years,
so often breaking down, reduced to bitter tears,
my world evolved around him and all he must endure,
crying over the hopelessness, we both knew there was no cure.
The life as we knew it, full of happiness and mirth,
ended with one cruel blow that dreadful day in march.
You have terminal cancer ! And what do we do now?
carry on as best we can and live f` today somehow.
I don´t want your sympathy, I´m not the only one
but perhaps a little empathy, when the day is done.

I say farewell and let you go.
I'm fine, I'm fineAnger bubbles up to the surfaceI'm fine, I'm fine3 days 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
I know you're not okayShe’s always been this wayI know you're not okay4 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
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
ContradictionEveryone wishes for happinessContradiction6 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
without the feeling of pain
But not one can make a rainbow
without a single drop of rain
It's a contradiction, do you not see?
No one is ever truly free
You stay silent
yet it's the loudest sound out there
But there isn't anyone
No one who has that same pain to share
An opposite life is, loud and clear
but there is nobody to hear
You hide the reality of it all
in hopes that you don't break all that's left inside
But you're up all night wondering why no one noticed
no one realizes that underneath you've died

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

which had made my sadness go high.
I can never get them back,
I can do nothing but sigh.
The moon has it's full,
but sometimes it is crescent.
Rainbows will shine,
but after sometime it will die.
Good-bye is so sad,
but it is the thing we always had.
Saying farewell before you're on your trip,
which is the end of our friendship.
If we really went apart,
my heart is flying to you like a dart.
If we see the full moon alive,
no matter how far we are, it's enough!
