Confession With a ChuckleHow long will this last?Confession With a Chuckle7 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Mom says I should attend mass
My friend scared of my laugh
As I describe my latest crash
Try to sleep
My thoughts creep
Can’t help but weep
As my heart leaps
Hold your ground
Don’t say a sound
It’s so hard when it’s so loud
Everyone is normal, walking around
I’m the one who makes things strange,
Told not to mention “those things”
But I can’t change
My interactions are arranged.
Friend, Foe, Heart racer.
I need a word eraser.
I can’t be…them.
Do they just have an automatic hem?
I feel like I’m at the edge.
Though I’m so close to a break through.
I want a clear answer.
Because I’m not sure.
When you have do much you can never mention.

You spend years doing good, and the bad is what you collect.
Doing good is hardly ever appreciated, you only do it to sleep well
Creating a second heaven for others but yourself equals you living in hell.
The joke lies at the very end when you are replaced and thrown away
They make you waste your powers, heart, emotions but you're strong enough to say.
I've lived, I've loved and I've got no inch of regret, and this much I know is true
I care less for others now, I've learned my lesson and all thanks goes to you.
Angel and Lucinda's Wedding.Welcome, Good afternoon, family and friends.Angel and Lucinda's Wedding.8 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
We have come here today to celebrate the wedding of Lucinda Satanas and Angel Satanas.
On behalf of the two of them, I thank you for being here today,They are so happy that you have come to share in their excitement By your presence, you celebrate with them the love they have discovered in each other And you support their decision to commit themselves to a lifelong relationship.
Marriage is perhaps the greatest and most challenging adventure of human relationships. No ceremony can create a relationship that does not already exist and has not already been acknowledged in all the commitments you have made to each other, both large and small. A ceremony is a symbol of how far you have come together and a symbol of the promise that you will make to each other. What this ceremony can do is to witness and affirm the choice you make to stand together as lifemates and partners, to continue to live your lives together and to love each oth

You complete me in every way.
As I was walking out in the garden and thinking about our past.
I realised I want to share every moment of the rest of my life with you.
I will take care of you, and I will do my best to never make you cry.
I promise to never leave you alone, I promise to be with you for life.

I'm mostly dreaming about you.

You don't know how much it startled me
To find something hidden in your eyes
As you looked away.
I can't help but fall into a trance,
when I hear your two syllable name.
A sort of sickness that takes over,
that I can't explain
Is this the heartache called love?
Why is it so difficult,
To love the one you like?
I don't know,
because this is my first time,
on the boat of a certain enemy called love.
We are the shy types.
We've only said our Hellos.
Never said goodbye,
that's okay though.
I wish I'll never have to say goodbye.

It goes so fast
Most don't even notice
Because it will never last
Gone in a breath
Lost in a thought
And now it fades
Is this truly what you sought?
Cherish what you have
As you realise what you've lost
Because things come, things go
My sight of her
Fades like melting snow
Oh to see her again
A wonderful pleasure
Yet a burden
To large to measure
But it's over
Gone with the wind
Returned to dust
Only those memories remain
Only those lost tears

past crimson pools of sorrow
and dreams that hide the lies
Halting at the valleys
carved deep into the heart
while thoughts become untethered
returning to the start
with a gentle kiss and sigh
as time begins to shatter
before the long goodbye

Chaos was what to come, Over time would replace
Inner beautiful landscapes that turned into space
Pull his clothes off,
He still knew his heart
Rip his skin off,
Avoid to drift apart
Claw his flesh off,
He was nude with the art
Manliness lost the armor
The worst disappointment of all
Over the time he withered
Left with really nothing
Everything ripped off
He was broke,
He was lost
He was found,
He was clean
Clean of all the accessories,
That have made him this scam
Clean of all the accessories,
That once made him a man
Now with nothing but necessities,
He could see his own fault
'Cos with nothing but necessities,
He could no longer be adult
His great stature collapsed in ruins,
He died and fell apart
But after all the dust laid down,
He could still hear his heart
And all that was left in the ruins,
Saved by this art
Was a child so young,
He could get his new start

and the nostalgia was sad
fond memories of better times seemed dimensions away
the faded echoes were still calling
a thousand decrepit arms, desperately reaching for the erstwhile
this place, this place we were supposed to make our home
but it's turned into a prison, a tomb:
and our days here are numbered.
there was a drought that year for rain,
and their garden of wild roses had wilted.
the petals crumbling between their fingers,
the dust drifting away into the wind,
but the thorns still just as sharp.
they laid hand in hand,
same stale oxygen from the despairing winter, still present in their lungs
the loneliness, the hopelessness had settled in and refused to leave
like a parasite, latching on with all it's might.
The Loss Of Not LoveSo here I am, all by myselfThe Loss Of Not Love15 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Feeling things that I once felt
And thought were true but just a lie
That's not who you are, deep inside
Our love was strong and beautiful
You held my hand, were dutiful
Then watched me cry, burn in the fire
Of these games, I start to tire
You look at me, what do you see?
Someone who I used to be
That's not me now, but you wouldn't know
You haven't been here, you haven't let go
You can't look past all of the hurt
Get off your knees, up from the dirt
You cannot sit there in silence
Speaking out with such violence
Look at what you've done to us
You broke my heart and bent my trust
But you don't care, it's what you want
Now less a tenderness and more a taunt
You are not the man that I need
Someone to stand up for and look after me
Knows the difference between right and wrong
Can find the real meaning in a poem or a song
Maybe it was all there before
But now I'm fading out this door
I can't handle the hollow look in your eye
When you hiss at me "You are mine"

Sounds that fly alight
Calling out so desperate
To send me off this plight
This grey landscape I've walked
Empty and endless to eyes that see
Have I known it for so long
I have begun calling it home to me
Whithered leaves which never touch
Can float in air all day and night
Only someone else can save me
A hero for everyone, lit this light
A being so loving
This presence so calm
Briefly touching my cheek
Give my core a rich balm
Her truthful smile says end this fight
So much she wishes for my success
She can fulfill my cause and dreams
Guiding me with a warm caress

The days will fly by,
Turning weeks into months
While we look back and ask why.
In the blink of an eye
The money will go,
Like a child with cookie dough.
In the blink of an eye
We silently cry,
Losing the ones we held close
The ones we loved the most.
In the blink of an eye
We live and we die,
Aging more every day
While we slowly slip away.

Of darkness and light?
In one, you can see the other
And in the other, out of sight.
That was my demise.
I was the darkness
in midst of the light.
Who was to see me?
The darkness, unnoticed.
From my childhood, she saw.
" Are you okay? " she asked.
I nodded, in silence, in awe.
Dewdrops, beginning to fall.
It was you.
You took my hand, and pulled.
The darkness, it attacked
Not willing to be fooled.
But you kept this rope around me
Holding onto it, tightly
You'll never let go, you said.
Even if we're so far away, my friend
Please, please tell me
That you're still holding the other end.
My dearest, best friend, Michelle.
I can't see the rope anymore.
Please, I want to see your light again.

And the glimmering hope
That I see in your eyes
I can't help but wonder
Where has it gone?
Why you no longer
Where has the real
You disappeared to
And why are you acting
You know who I am
And you've lived in my home
And yet you still act
I can promise you this
And simply this
That I will not harm you
You're safe in my arms
You can live again
If you just close

and now every time she paints over them
with thick black lines of approval-seeking paint,
she knows what she is hiding underneath
and that just kills her.
"i want to swallow you whole
so that your beauty can bleed into me
and i won't ever have to
let you go."
she scared the shit out of you and you
took advantage of her pains
took advantage of her ailments.
how could you
how could you
how could i
you packed her lunch once weekly
even though you knew she never swallowed it,
just pushed it around her plate
and chewed it before
expelling it from her insides.
you watched her do her makeup
three times daily and you watched her
reapply when she would cry it all off
but you never helped her
wipe it away
you just asked her
you branded her illness onto your wrists
using her as an excuse
for late appointments and
a free sympathy card but you never
gave a shit about what it was that

Jag är bisexuell, och räds för mitt liv.
Det är ingen yttre kraft som hotar,
Inga homofoba mobbare,
Ingen armé, varken orch eller uruk-hai.
Nej, den stora faran ligger -som så ofta- inombords.
Stor kärlek har dragit förbi,
Flera gånger har den fyllt min simpla kropp,
De fjärran stjärnor, likväl som sjöns glittrande dunkel.
Nu sitter jag här med hjärtat i knät som ett barn.
Och om du vill, så vore det fint av dig att lyssna,
Ty aldrig har mitt människoliv varit skörare,
Lika tunt som flor tycks det,
En gång starkt och mäktigt som en fredsbanér.
Dock klandrar jag dig ej,
Om andra röster dig kallar,
Med rop långt mer nödställda än mitt.
För det må mycket väl vara deras liv som bör räddas inatt.

Laugh from within
Anything at all
To make my world spin
I want to be with you
And to hold you tight
But I don’t think there’s anything
Left from that night
I love you, I think
I don’t really know
I guess it doesn’t matter
What my feelings will show
I wished I could feel
So light and breezy
Then I realised I do
It’s never been so easy
Nothing weird, nothing bad
It can only get worse
If you become mine
You’re always so cool
So happy, so strong
I wouldn’t take anything
To make it all wrong
Smiling from a distance
I know its fine
To feel that long lost tingle
Creep up my spine
Simple, that’s it
I don’t want to love
But if I do, then fine
It goes up above
If you want me, that’s great
I won’t say no
There’s no need to live
In love’s great shadow
Smile from a distance
Laugh from within
My job now is easy
Enjoy while I spin
One day it will fade
But I will no long

That would involve letting someone in,
and that's just not safe.
There are days when you just need a hug,
and someone recognises that,
despite having shut them out.
That's strangely safe.
There are days when you just need a hug,
just someone to hold you,
someone to care.
But why should they?
