We wouldn’t know the difference
Between a star and a ball of dust.
Life is a study of contrast.
We get dark,
Not to fall apart
But to shine.
Old poem: SwimmingEverything is clearOld poem: Swimming3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You feel weightless
Like floating in the sky
To high for anyone to see
Water may have air
But you still need to breathe
Under the water is a different place
Like from a different world in outer space
You have to push yourself
to move around and use goggles to see
Floating away in this blue space
where I can finally feel free
Just don't forget to breathe
As you swim around
Under the sea
This little childI held him closeThis little child3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
close enough to hear his little heart beat
I feel him take in air
I created this
I think as I press him close
while staring at him small face
Whats his name
asks a nurse next to me
I smile and reply Andrew
He smiles at me
and I smile
pressing my lips to his ear
I whisper to him
The world is cruel and I thought
I would never want you
I kiss him and say
but now I would give everything up for you
because for the first time
He cry's out
and I press him closer
while doctors rush to my side
I keep going saying
for the first time
I have found my love
and it's you
Unrequited LoveAn act of admirable courageUnrequited Love7 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
from the sincerest of hearts
a love that I cannot encourage
the feeling in me then departs.
Do not be in solitary confusion
I have a burning determination
do not reach the wrong conclusion
but I must reject this fixation.
It is not you, nor is it me
please do not lose all hope
but I believe this was not meant to be
I know that you will be able to cope.
A heart with fervent ambition
may not be able to settle as easily
a pretend love cannot come to fruition
truly, I do care for you deeply.
Forgive me, how selfish am I
for turning away such a great love
please don't let your spirits die
No words of appeasement to think of.
I apologize endlessly for your unrequited love.

but millions of miles apart they stay forever.
Someday there'll reach at least that's what they believe,
but loneliness and darkness is all there'll receive.
Messages they send on asteroids in space,
of feelings that are instant but that's not the case.
Cause these asteroids take forever,an eternity it may seem,
so from time to time they both might think it's all but just a dream.
At moments they felt unloved and would never be missed,
so they sometimes decided to become a black hole and die an abyss.
But whenever that happens a message always reaches in time,
and on that messages it reads "I love you, your always on my mind."
They always stopped before acting and write another letter,
because they know someone out there wants to keep each other.
They will never see each other but that isn't important to them both,
cause they know just having someone who loves you takes away all your hurt.
Hmmm they're both lucky but what about me,
I use to breath by Jean-Marc K. OchoaI used to feel hated, I use to feel neglected.I use to breath by Jean-Marc K. Ochoa8 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I used to feel a lot of things and never respected.
I used to feel hurt I use to feel pain.
I used to feel it over and over again.
I used to feel separated from home.
I used to be apart of a crowd but still felt alone.
I used to think sadness hits you for a while.
I used to cry a lot but now my face has a smile.
I used to feel, I use to care.
I used to live cautious cause I was filled with fear.
I used to be you but now I'm me.
I used to be chained but now am free.
I used to be young but now am probably old.
I used to be warm but now am cold.
I used to be alive but sadly am dead.
And a gun with this poem is laying beside me in my bed.
I used to think those thoughts but never again.
Now I'm just me without the pain.
Now I'm finally me, now I finally see.
Being yourself is the greatest thing to be.
I live my life not feeling like a defect.
I live my life without any regret.
I treat everyone the way I want them to treat me.
I now love my life
Mon Bonbon AmieJe connais une belle fille qui goûte comme un bonbonMon Bonbon Amie8 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Avec des lèvres sucrées et une langue de miel
Je lui mords doucement avec mes dents désirant
Les chemins sur sa peau nous conduire au ciel
Ses jambes chocolats sont si délicieuses
Chaque bouchée a l'impression de l'étérnité
Le bruit qu'elle fait me dit qu'elle est heureuse
Ils ne comprennent jamais notre intimité
Perdu dans ses yeux qui brillent comme un bronze feu
Perdu dans son sourire qui me donne faim toujours
Nous mentons ensemble, et je sens ses cheveux
Elle m'aime tout le temps parce que je suis son nounours
Pour moi, il n'y a rien dans ce monde sans elle
Mon amour est une personne exceptionnelle
OverlookedShe cries herself to sleep every nightOverlooked8 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
No one asks if she's alright
She wakes up with puffy eyes
No one wonders why
She walks around with a smile on her face
No one notices that it's fake
She hides behind the curtain of her hair
No one sees her pleading stare
She wears long sleeves to cover the scars
No one asks what they are
She takes medication to dull the pain
No one even knows her name
She buries her nose in a book
To escape from the world where she is overlooked
A Psalm of ApostasyA pale light burns in my memory;A Psalm of Apostasy10 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
it was in your eyes, reflected as
the moon does its borrowed rays.
Hungrily I devoured it, but the color was lost. Selah!
You basked in its radiance,
even as it burned the altar and pews,
and as I hid in the shadows it cast.
As you spoke in tongues, I covered my ears. Selah!
When I wandered, aimlessly,
in the valley of the shadow of death,
you saved me and lit my way home.
Yet I have become blind, the darkness a refuge. Selah!
I should turn away from that blazing altar,
leave you standing amongst the ashes
as you preach the empty lie of damnation.
But on the back of my eyelids, your reflection is branded. Selah!
And so I will continue to stand in your shadow.
And so I will bite my tongue until it falls off.

You better keep it sharp and look at that royal crown
It’s time to get on your new wedding gown
Your prince charming awaits you in his tux
He knows you have those million bucks
A blind wed is never what you asked for
But you must show up at that door
As you walk down that aisle tonight and don’t forget
Broken Teardrops on my keyboardLaying here under the darkBroken Teardrops on my keyboard15 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

An army of one
The day is my battlefield
In a world torn asunder
The sun watches in splender
Clouds clamour with thunder
When day is done

Alone I breathe
When sun rises
I stand the same
Sword in hand
They will fear my name.
A Lover's SorrowHe loved her.A Lover's Sorrow15 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She loved him.
But their love was soon to end
And would throw both off the brim.
Why did he leave her?
She did not know.
Every day she waited for him.
She finally decided to give herself the final blow
He came home the next day
Feeling the sorrow of a contrite heart
He began scaling the stairs
A choice he later found not so smart.
At the top of the stair he saw her
His lovely lady swinging side to side
The rope around her neck took her
As she fell down and cried
Tell Me All Your SecretsTell me about your life, and the stories you don't think amount to muchTell Me All Your Secrets16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Did you feel a knife from the one you love, instead of a gentle touch?
What about the bruises on your body, long faded away?
Did you get them from a mishap on a midsummer’s day?
So tell me now, what is it that you fear most on this Earth?
Are you worried about being left behind and the value of your self worth?
Can you tell me everything that you're hiding from?
Are you scared of the emotions that make you feel numb?
Get close and whisper now, will you reveal what hurts you the most?
Are you afraid to open up and let someone get close?
Did you find your lover loving another in your very own bed?
Did the scared look on his face make you see red?
Do you keep everything inside, for fear of letting too much escape?
Does the thought of it all busting out one day, make you afraid?
Are you filled with all the acids burning everything they touch?
Do you drink away your pain, and use emptiness as a crutch?

Clawing at her skin
Trying to free her spirit
From the demons that lurk within
Their screaming overshadows
Her every waking thought
And haunt her in her dreaming
Resistance is all for naught
Held captive as a prisoner
Of a bloody civil war
Her mind has been invaded;
Her heart shall beat no more
Paper LivesWe take in the worldPaper Lives16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Through paper eyes
Concealing our hearts
In a paper disguise
As time passes by
The sheets wear thin
Baring bones within
An onslaught of knives
Life tears like a blade
It slashes the flesh
Cuts the paper away
Till our hearts become raw
And broken and bruised
In a hostile world
So clouded and confused
This battle for tomorrow
Is one not all can win
A story told in crimson ink
On white, paper skin
The starving heartAn artist I am, and my heart bleeds for beautyThe starving heart16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Needs it, believes it; and so I appease it,
By brushing my blood with the colors of diseases:
Liquid happiness and acrylic aromas
Of viral octane, bring on the pain
Mutate me baby, there’s always more to gain!
Splice here, slice that
The spices of fear are on the attack
Let the pathogen grow, shut immunity down
I’m in desperate need of a doctor right now, but
All I want is a brush, to shape the phases of this rush
So pump in the corrosion and let me go numb,
Let me take in the surge of adrenaline and scum—
Feel the purge, and with love, I’m unmade
Fueled by affection it infects, invades
Takes me through valleys of plague, rusting genes, rotting cells;
Painting, tainting, re-shaping this shell
As I trace the sickness through my veins, my glorious hell.
An artist I am, whose heart bled for beauty
So much so that it spilled out on the canvas.

I cried for the first time in five years,
Even though I knew you wouldn't approve of the tears.
And all the unstoppable tears were for your sake,
Because you collapsed and caused my world to shake.
Just yesterday, you were cheering us on,
You made choir that much more fun.
We perfected the piece, you said you were proud,
We were all excited to perform for the crowd.
Today was the day, we all waited with smiles,
Then in comes your husband, who just stood for a while.
He told us about how you were sick,
I was sure that it was some kind of trick.
So on we go, through the tiring day,
All of us, in our hearts, we prayed
That you would return, that you'd be all right,
So we wouldn't hate the day we all dressed up in black and white.
I frown now, as I continue to type
Because David never drummed, Avery never played her reed pipe.
We didn't go to the concert, we never showed off,
Because we couldn't sing the songs you so dearly loved.
I wish you good luck, like you did for us,
