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!
Falling LeafThe barest whisper of a falling leafFalling Leaf7 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
as it tumbles through the air
Its flickering shadow like a cunning thief
the gentle touch of wind in your hair
You lay there now upon the ground
a captive of the show
Your eyes will widen and your heart will pound
as you lie there in the snow
The barest hint of your aching grief
cries out in your silent prayer
A prayer for the end to be quiet and brief
for someone who simply would care
You lay there now without a sound
as time begins to slow
Your last breath rattles and your soul is unbound
as you die there in the snow

and it shines out on my face
A warm, inviting light
burning in its place
You make my mind turn
Talking is invigorating
conversations with you
are completely intoxicating
You make my heart hurt
because you constantly walk away
why do you push me out
when I really want to stay
You make my eyes cry
you never leave my thoughts
it was naive to think I meant something
clearly I did not
With this last stanza
I wipe you from my heart
in hopes that guys like you
can no longer rip it apart
Love Letters from the Moon and the SunI love the smell of smokeLove Letters from the Moon and the Sun10 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Mixed with your skin
The fire in your heart,
And the ashes within
I long to see you
And meet you in the sky
But for you to breathe
I have to die
At dusk you bleed gold
And fight through the pain
With purple bruises, you die
Just so I can live again
Some day we'll be together
Just you, my dear, and I
But until that time has come
We will each live in our own sky

Said her mother with a smile.
The girl replied, "good,
it's been for a while."
But as she walked down the stairs,
a frown no one sees
replaced her warm smile
as she whispered "please kill me."
"What's wrong with me?"
Said the girl as a tear
started its long trip
down her face as she leered
directly at the wall
of her room so dark.
"Is there a way to mend
my long broken heart?"
"Over time, those memories seem to be
much like me."
The girl buried her head
in her hands wet with tears,
"I'm finally alone,
I've confronted my fears.
But I don't like this at all,
not one bit."
The room grew dark
as she blew out the last candle lit.
Life's Vicious CircleI have this weight on my shoulders.Life's Vicious Circle12 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It’s the weight of my life.
The struggles and stresses,
It’s the chaos and fights.
It stacks higher and higher,
Slumping my shoulders each time.
They are getting lower and lower,
Is this life even mine?
Now crumpled on the floor,
The things that controlled me,
Such things give me grief.
As I pick myself up,
And brush off my clothes,
I once again prepare myself,
For plenty more lows.

Not of Pain, but of Joy.
Just give me a Kiss goodnight,
Before tomorrow comes to annoy.
I am sorry we don't have time anymore,
And that we will be together no more.
Please don't leave me here,
I don't want to live without you!
Just stay and please come near,
I cannot breathe without you.
You will be in my heart forever,
Yet in my arms never.

Hana squirmed and kicked viciously trying to get away from her captor, but his hold on her was far too strong. A blindfold was slipped over her eyes and her hands were tied behind her back. “Let me go! Let me g-” a peace of cloth was tied around her mouth acting as a gag and Hana was slung over her captor’s back. The man began running. Hana reached into his mind trying to find his intentions or thoughts but they were blocked just like the masked-man’s thoughts had been. She listened keenly to her captor’s footsteps; they sounded strangely familiar, but she couldn’t make out to whom they belonged. She began to strategize.
If I can speak into his mind and enter his thoughts, maybe I can distract him long enough to get away, she thought. But which direction would I run, she thought. Suddenly her captor came to a halt. “You’ve got everything?” he asked someone in a muffled voice. Why does that voice sound so...familiar?”

and put on the mask
the face that i use
to get through each task
put on a fake smile
and rosy red cheeks
although it is joyful
the disguise still stinks
its fake and i hate it
but whats there to do
when everyone loves it
when my faults are few
Divine CurseMy curse is in my head, never shutting upDivine Curse15 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Always yelling loudly, to go and get a brush
Saying that you need to paint, or write all this down
Write your thoughts out, so they can be found.
My curse is in my mind, telling me to leave
Leave all the people, and to sit by a tree
Sit by a tree, and forget where you are
To travel into a world, only you know so far.
My curse is my imagination, I love it to death
But if I’m not careful, it will cause me my regret
I will lose all my friends, and forget who I am
And forever be the one, who can never understand.
My curse is my love, for my mind and my words
For my fantasy’s, for my treasures, for my gifts and my worlds
My curse is what I love, my curse helps me through
For without it, I wouldn't be here with you
I would have left this world long ago
And never would have come back
Would have lost myself to the things
That causes my heart to crack
My curse is my head
My curse is my mind
My curse is my imagination
My curse is nothing but
My Greatest FearMy greatest fear shall never be failure,My Greatest Fear18 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Nor public shaming, or a bankruptcy,
Nay, my greatest concern that haunts me still,
Is to never say to them, ‘I love thee.’
I have survived num’rous dangerous trials,
And I possess traits that I have shown you,
But the world means less than nothing to me,
If I’ve simply no one to come home to.

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

Bright, so many stars to shine.
Be this beauty only thine,
Your soul mirrors in eyes of mine.
Let my gaze behold your depths,
Through the clouds high in the sky,
Through secrets unseen on earth,
Until your tears be mine to cry.
And when the heavens clash in rain,
When the storm thusly begins,
Let your light calm the wind.
And when I stay before you,
Alone in endless sorrow,
Let me take your light to borrow.
Path of RegretThe sunset is lovely as it creeps out of the sky,Path of Regret21 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It’s rays warm my skin, the air floats idly by.
Reds and golds from the forest down below,
Stretching outward, away, their leaves aglow.
A juxtaposition of forest and sea
Meet at the horizon, joined they’ll never be.
My feet dangle, my hands upon my lap;
A breath, a sniff, a scent of musty sap.
Upon this crack, this break in the purity of the land
This cliff, this valley, half given to make sand.
A metaphor for my existence, the forest and the sea,
I’ve reached my pinnacle, this is what I will be.
Living below the forest is my memory,
A day, a week, a month, a year, standing as a tree.
Only for a time, as the sun wanes and lowers down
Silent and forlorn, my life makes no sound.
Looking far ahead towards the forest and the sea,
Futile to wonder if there is something more for me.
A lone pine, taller than all, encroaches on the heights,
I recognize the fir, a brief moment of love alight.
I stare and remember, a fondness f

You slowly wake messing with your hair as you get out of bed.
You brush your teeth and messy bed head.
You get dressed, eat breakfast,
And go out to lay in the grass.
You bring your favorite glass.
You lay out in the light.
The sun on you heated and bright.
To you, there's no more beautiful sight.
Sipping on your tea,
There's no place you'd rather be.
This feeling let's your mind free.
RealityI melted, like liquefied defeatReality23 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Tears pouring out of my eyes
As she whispered one by one, the lies
Whilst the ignorant accuse me of false belief
I shattered, like fragile glass
Surrounded by walls stained with jealousy
And a mirror in the middle, reflecting the irony
Of who and what I was in my jaded past
I vanished, like smoke unleashed in the air
A lost insignificant being wallowing in demise
Taken by a fabricated memory by surprise
Now eternity welcomes my sorrow and despair
Sketchy PoetryIt crawls and creepsSketchy Poetry1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Through the cracks it seeps
Under my skin
To my heart within
Slowly it fills
And my heart it stills
A dying dance
Never had a chance
With a last sigh
I whisper goodbye
Please hold your tear
I'm not worth it, dear
I miss you joy from yesterday
A childhood's soft and simple way
Fighting wrong with swords of right
And strong shields, a childish knight
Playing on the sloping grounds
Shrouded by imagination
I miss you hope from yesterday
Never ending twisted way
Climbing mountains dressed in mist
Staying clear off river beds
A bright light house far across
Troubled waters of nagging doubts
I fear the turn of yet a day
Will my missing heart fade away
Drifting off to magic worlds
While the shell left rots and curls
Walking among dragons blue
And fantastical wonders true
What good is tomorrow
If a day like now will follow
Tomorrow or today I’d say
Are the same anyway
What good is tomorrow
If no change appears to follow
Tomorrow will not be kinder

Time Slips AwayUsed to spend timeTime Slips Away1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Alone with myself
Would create things
Had time to just think
Now all my time
Is spent working two jobs
To make money
To pay all the bills
Day after day
And time slips away
Insanity at brink
Want to do somthing
Worthwhile and good
’Cause time goes so fast
It gives me the chills
Feel like I have
No true identity
No music or style
Don’t know what I think
Feeling average and boring
Sometimes shallow and dumb
I’m missing common knowledge
And lacking of skills
When I do get a moment
It’s usually wasted
So stuck on the shallow
Can’t step outside the rink
Want to start thinking deeper
And learn about the world
These would make me as happy
As caffeine and pain pills
Want to earn some respect
Have goals that are reached
So this burden can sink
Somebody help me
I know there’s more to this life
Just waiting to see it
Once I open my eyes
