My Own CondolencesIf you're reading this, please, do not worry,My Own Condolences30 minutes ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As the content of this piece will describe,
Why my eyes are wet, and vision blurry,
As I sit here writing, alone, tonight.
I see things right now, too good to be true,
As always, I'm taking caution to this.
All I want is to return home to you,
As I long for an everlasting bliss.
It hurts me to think that we cannot be,
As I think of you always, in death, too.
You always ask from me, for honesty,
As promised, I think I'm in love with you.
Again, do not worry, if you read this,
As I only wish you to stay cheerful.
Instead, please take the time to reminisce,
As these memories now leave me tearful.
The hours spent together were but too few,
But I'd repeat them any day with you.
Segenswunsch fuer den kleinen D.Keinen Kummer, keine Schmerzen,Segenswunsch fuer den kleinen D.2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
nicht im Körper, nicht im Herzen;
immer eine volle Truhe,
langes Leben, sanfte Ruhe.
Viele Freunde, ein paar gute;
soll’s Liebe sein, dann absolute;
daß Vertrauen, wenn‘s verschenkt wird,
nicht enttäuscht, nie fehlgelenkt wird.
Unterstützung alle Tage,
Zuversicht in jeder Lage,
und falls nichts davon zu sehen,
die Kraft, alleine aufzustehen.
Mut zu handeln, wenn es nötig,
viel Geduld, falls dies nicht möglich,
und die Weisheit, zwischen beiden
zweckgemäß zu unterscheiden.
OvertimeDo you know how it feels, darling?Overtime2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To be completely alone.
That’s a feeling I’ve grown accustomed to,
In our big, two bedroom home.
I sometimes smell your perfume,
And I’ll have to turn my head.
Or I’ll sometimes feel your presence,
While lying in our bed.
I see you often in my dreams,
You’re alive and smiling bright.
Showing the world your endless love,
And filling my heart with light.
I’ll occasionally hear your voice,
And I smile a little inside.
Then proceed to tell you all my worries,
As if you never died.
It’s been 20 years,
And I visit you every afternoon,
I’ll turn 80 next month,
And, hopefully, join you soon.

Don’t leave me to rot
The price for those who sinned
Is to rest not
Don’t give my body to the earth
God will call on the misled
And in my second birth
I will know what it is to be
Don’t let a Revelation make me
Something that I am not
I’m not a sinner, give me mercy
Please don’t leave me to rot

I know you regret it, love,
You told me so many times.
But I still wonder,
You left with her
And left me behind
Take your hands off him
'cause he's the only one that I
Have ever loved
And please don't find her skin
When you turn the lights out
I can't erase it
From my mind
I just replay it, over,
Think of it all the time.
But I don't want to imagine
Words you spoke to her that night.
Naked bodies look like porcelain,
You both knew I'd be bleeding inside....
Ooh [x2] Ah [x5]
Did she make your heart beat faster than I could?
Did she give you what you hoped for?
Oh, nights of loveless love, I hope it made you feel good,
Knowing how much I adored you. [x2]
blue and grey (daughter)One day there was a girl who cried tears of pearlsblue and grey (daughter)8 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
and her eyes were blue and green like none I've ever seen
And she met a man that night who filled her with delight
and he spoke in poetry and rhyme
and she loved him in no time
But he changed
and then soon he became jealous of her beauty and fame
And he locked her away and he forced her to play
songs that were blue, songs that were grey
So then this lonely girl had, had enough of her world
so she climbed to the top of the tallest tower and stood there for way over an hour
Until she decided she'd jump, so she jumped with a very loud thump
And all of the neighbours, they came out and cried
when they discovered that this poor girl had died
And a boy, he just stood there and gasped at this beauty asleep on the grass
Well, her eyes were like none he had seen
except for the girls in his dreams
Then he changed
and then soon he became depressed and very, very strange
He'd lock himself away for days and days
and play songs that were

Push me down to the fatigue crack.
Bury all my pride and all my trueness
And put the ashes into the darkness.
I will not scream because I know,
That I will lose you even so.
I’ll fade just like the rose you gave me at the evening show
And I will give you my all soul without any woe.
In dumb and painful weakness
I’m falling down into the dark
Forgetting all, forgetting sorrow
And hoping that I'll see tomorrow

And letting the world brighten explode .
A scaffold is waiting for us and nothing more
Our unhallowed heads fill fall to the floor.
Sagebrush is bitter just like your lips
Please , leave me just one tender kiss.
We will meet nowhere by the lunar eclipse ,
So blow me a kiss, just one more kiss.
You can fall down so far away ,
But I will hold you in any way.
I’m just a ghost for you, and no more
I’m just a shadow play on the wall.

Making it bleed,
You don’t want to see it
But you’re the one that I need.
Help me with painting
This walls bloody red
I’m no living,
But living dead.
The dozen roses will be blossoming here
And bloody angels will sing me to sleep.
I’m not living, not anymore
So bring me the coffin and the pistol
Shot me in head
Tear it to pieces
See all my thoughts
See all my reasons
Let Me Ask You a QuestionLet me ask you a question,Let Me Ask You a Question11 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But would you like the answer?
Have you ever been in real pain,
Pain that spreads like cancer?
Do you have the right to judge,
When you sit upon a faulty throne?
How do you know the ripple,
When you throw the stone?
How loud do you scream,
When you're being beaten?
How brave are you,
When their anger goes unsweetened?
And what do you do,
When your lungs fill with smoke?
As you fall to your knees,
And your eyes burn as you choke...
Maybe it's time to change.
Maybe it's time to try.
Maybe it's time to break from the cocoon,
And change into a butterfly.
If you really listened to me,
You'd realize I have good advice.
All my words are free,
They don't come with a price.
I'm not insane,
I've just been through hell.
I've been beaten and broken,
And I can't seem to yell.
Excuse my crazy behavior,
I don't much care.
I've been to the worst places,
And fell in love with despair.
So I'm used to being torn,
And without a stitch to my name.
I put myself back together,

I think not.
I just want to see blood.
Boiling in a pot.
Some say I'm crazy but,
I'm no joke.
I just want to wrap my hands around a throat,
And squeeze till you croak.
Some say I'm crazy but,
I take great pride,
In my art,
Of skin and bones
Of those who died.
PerspectiveTo me I am nothingPerspective13 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To me I am worthless
But to others I am everything
And to some I am priceless
It is all in perspective
About the things I refuse to see
All I can see is something defective
Self consciousness blocks out the things I could be
Yet my friends see something with prospective
They see the possibility of greatness in me
Bones and StonesThere once was a girl who lived at the bottom of a hole.Bones and Stones14 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It was dark and damp and really, in fact, not all that nice.
She slept with worms and the crawling things nestling in her unkempt hair.
It was cold, and unnerving living within the ever moving earth.
the girl would never abandon the only comfort she's ever known.
The sanctuary of her home of bones and stones.
Shadow Of SorrowHave you ever heard of the shadow of sorrow?Shadow Of Sorrow15 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Of course not it's only a shadow
A shadow of sorrow that it borrows
Hidden in plain sight
Hidden because a smile outshines the dark
Laughter that's louder than sorrow's silence
Eyes that light up for a show of lies
You would never know because it's timeless
No one pays attention to a shadow
Sad isn't it?
Too bad people are too shallow
It would make life so much easier
Isn't it all grand?
Being able to hide all of that sorrow in a shadow
You'll look like you have an empty hand
It's so easy to be able to hide
Do you want it to hide?
Of course you do, don't let them know
You can't let them know or you might die
Don't want to be a burden like that shadow
Did You Love MeDid you love me then?Did You Love Me16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Do you love me now?
If you ever did
Can you tell me how?
How you could leave me
And love someone new
Was it really that easy
To leave me and you
You live in our house
And sleep in our room
While I share with a mouse
In a depressing gloom
I still have your picture
The one where you laugh
When you loved me for sure
And we didn’t have a past
I still catch a whiff
Of your love and perfume
But if I step off this cliff
I will be with you soon
So meet me at the end
And we’ll ride off together
And our souls will mend
Pencil ShavingsSomedays, I'm a led pencil. The tip of it all.Pencil Shavings16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I help draw the entire picture, instead of writing on the wall.
Other days, I'm just the space between the words I write.
I hold everything together without actually being tied. I'm
not part of the sentence as a whole, but instead I'm just the
empty space that holds it all together, the part of the
sentence that makes the words around it fit.
But I don't get any recognition for the dead that I do. I just
go unnoticed, and people see right through; they see right
through the empty space that swims in the river of words
around it in the ocean of the notebook page.
I don't mean to be there sometimes, but since I'm just empy
space on a notebook page, I can't be erased. But if someone
took an eraser and took away all the words, there would be
nothing but empty space on that page; nothing but me.
But when someone finishes writing something, they don't just
erase what they've done. So there is still empty space between
the words on the page

May you feel the wind
Brushing softly against your cheek
The way I wish I did in my mind
To that face of yours I so seeked
May you see the sun
Shining warmly down on you
The way I kissed you just for fun
All of the time, out of the blue
May you smell the sweet scent
Of flowers dancing on a breeze
Hope that you will understand
Without you near, I'd come to freeze
May you hear the rain
Falling kindly down upon you
Stealing away all of your pain
Something that I wish I could do
May you remember the earth
Laying calmly under your feet
'Cause it's right there under the dirt
That our dead hearts will take a seat
Pain/FearSickly feelingPain/Fear16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
deep within, My twisting gut
seems to make me sick,
This stabbing pain
in my ribs, Makes me double
over in vain, It tries to make me behave,
Though by pushing, It just makes
me afraid, Fear rips through
me, Pokes and pries, It tries
to reach, Every nook and cranny
screams for help, As pain
and fear, Takes control,
My body’s mind
starts to wonder, While fear
makes it take the wrong road,
Coming up with solutions
of the worse possible outcome,
So I ask
please pain, Go away,
And please someone
take the fear away…
LoveAs our love begins to enter the air,Love16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And with a fiery passion burning bright,
Everyone can see the amount of care,
It seems to change the dark, dark black filled night,
Into the shining light of sunny day,
And it just cannot be terribly wrong,
No matter what others might want to say,
Because with you is where I should belong,
I honestly do care deeply for you,
Just as I really hope you do for me,
Can we just stay stuck forever like glue,
Maybe then everyone will leave us be,
Cause my love for you is a fiery passion,
Meant to be answered in the same fashion.

So alive in the surf,
so afraid to break the surface
Staring up through the dappled sun,
tail swishing in wonder.
How i wish for

My bravado grows in the night.

The moon controls the tide,

Losing you.....!My happy life was ripped open to the coreLosing you.....!17 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
when you were taken suddenly, I fell to the floor
I felt lost, so alone, no reason to carry on
unanswered questions left, I was the dying swan
I pleaded with the angels to return you to me
but they wouldn't listen, just said that you were free
its hard for the ones that are left down on earth
for we must continue living, without much mirth
I guess you are out of pain now, and that was why
you were given you own wings, and taught to fly

Giving up!!Sitting in the darkness, is the best place to beGiving up!!18 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
hidden from every eye, staying out of view
feint shadows of my surroundings seen
no real colour found, just a hint of a deep hue
It`s hard to stay in the light, when you feel so low
unloved, unwanted, pushed out from all that good
remaining in the blackness of sorrow
knowing now that I am so misunderstood
I am but a shell of all that I stood for
down trodden by enemies, where else should I go?
but hide in the depths of this unyielding hell
here to remain for eternity, oh well..!

Hide away from the pain
I saved you once
Do yo-u remember?
But now you no longer want to be together
Left alone in my sorrow
I fight to live
I fight to love
A world apart
Doomed from the start
We shall be star-crossed forever
