The TravelerFor many seasons, many lightless days have I taken refuge among these hearts.The Traveler3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Each lit by a love untouchable, a love less valued by those who wish not for lasting companions. Sorcerers , devils at best. Bearing what remnants they have in diamond clad cases.
But what of the others?
Those bathed by moonlight, exiled from day in hopes held by those escaped from hell, what of their travels?
Spirits grow dim, another season passes. Yet another traveler less fortunate, secrets buried deep within his memory, dead to this world as much as he.
Like To Be A Evil GeniusLex LuthorLike To Be A Evil Genius4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
For a long time
To be a comic superhero
Who would arrive
Always in the nick of time
I would like to be
A evil genius
Be his Lex Luthor
I have lately
For some sign
A red blur
Across the skyline
The S across his chest
I heard about
For all my life
Was told was there
I do not know
I don't see it at all
Maybe he needs
When he gets rightous
To put him
In his place
Be his Lex Luthor
With a rock
To bring him to his knees
Yes I think
I would like to be
His Lex Luthor!
Don't you understand?Your eyes can not see inside my mind.Don't you understand?2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
- My mind is black and gloomy. Don't go there!
Your mouth doesn't change anything.
- Things have already occured.
Your feet don't know where I am.
- I'm hiding from you.
Your ears don't hear my whisper, or scream.
- I'm too afraid to yell for help.
Your hands don't reach my hands.
- I fall...
You found me -- I sit and cry. Alone.
"Are you okay?" You ask, and take one step towards me.
I shook my head:
"I'm not fine..."
I hear you breathe, and you look at me; deep into my eyes.
"What about now...?". Warm hands ~ his hands entwined around me. I trying to wriggle out of your grasp, but you're too strong.
"Thank you...", I whisper.
Your ears will hear that, and you hug me tighter.
"I don't want to leave you, alone..."
Self HatredHiding in shadows,Self Hatred3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
of those set above me,
swimming in tears,
no one could love me.
Trying to blend in,
or rather fade away,
but one small something,
begs my soul to stay.
Confiding in shadows,
of those who step upon me,
drowning in tears,
no one should love me.
Trying to publish,
so many books unread,
words of tender memory,
Inscribed with crimson red.
Running from the devil,
a risky game at that,
my roses die and petals shrivel,
Im nothing but a rat.
Lungs burning with smoke,
I draw my final breath,
I want it to come quickly,
death, a last request.
Running from regrets,
to many things remembered,
they sting into my darkened mind,
eternal burning embers.
Heart bleeding sorrow,
betrayer's lust and envy,
no one left to follow,
I beg for mercy,
Longing for a purpose,
a life lived so empty,
but yet it still shall surface,
that small hope
trapped within me.
Hiding from my fear,
avoiding all experience,
I don't want another reason,
you come on so delirious.
Confiding in my fear
Sense of SelfBrother, Where are you?Sense of Self3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
This storm that follows my steps
is becoming a burden. Always inching
closer, nipping at my heels in hunger,
awaiting the moment when it can finally
Brother, Are you searching for me?
I do search for you, Although, I never
sense your presence. I know not what
force keeps me from you,I know not
what you have become, But still.
I will search.
Brother, Was it he who sent you away?
That father of ours, he who sees no
value in either of us. He who has
stolen our friendship. That man, hardly
human in the shadow of a woman.
I do wonder what demons have made a
home in him.
Alex,Are you gone?
Do my words ever reach you?
This fog before me is thick, cluttered
with lies and faces of those who deceive me.
Path damp,It swallows up my efforts, leaving
me breathless and gasping for another chance.
Alex, Where are you?
This person who takes my steps is becoming
transparent. Always stumbling,Falling over
words.Waiting for the moment when she can finally
