DeathDeath's got more than a cousin, he's got a whole damn family tree.Death20 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Up in that tree, hanging from a rope, you've got a corpse named Me.
The sturdiest branch is named Depression, now that's Death's uncle, and he's holding onto the rope.
He's an intermittent alcoholic, but his family and friends ignore it. It's just him being eccentric, and at least he's not abusing dope.
Depression's got a twin sister, and her name is Mania. She says that she's healthy even though she's flat broke.
Blew all her money on facebook games, now the food budget's been cut short. That's why she's got a daughter named Starvation, a private little joke.
And Depression has a son, he neglects him but he's there.
A young gentleman by the name of Love, every time he sees a pretty girl he stops to stare.
Love's favorite relative is his Grandfather, Psychosis.
Reality seems so sweet until Grandma Hope has one of her fits.
And on the other side, you've got Papa; Pain, the patriarch of the whole outfit.

Forget About Me, Forget About Us.
Forget About The Must To Intertwine In Our Lust.
Forget About The Night We Entangled Into Each Others Arms,
To Kiss, And To Meet Each Other's Charm.
Forget About The Harm You Once Caused Me,
Forget About The Disease You Left With Ease.
Now You Have Forgotten All You Have Done,
The Pain You Dished Out, With Mercy You Had None.
So Leave And Live Your Life, But One Day I Make You Pay.

giving me the task of dodging night shadows in daylight
while my own two clumsy feet carry me into danger.
Tonight's the night,

The lid stays closed

Tonight's the night,

but today isn't my day to escape.

and my heart's ship begins to sink

De-illuminated descentFalling ever backwards into the black againDe-illuminated descent14 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A revolving darkness that warps me up tightly never ends
There is only so much control an id can take
Only so much pressure for the ego cracks and breaks
Feeling like Pluto missing the light and constant warmth
With the weight of the world holding me from moving forth
Who can pull me from this hidden gap
What can release me from this mentally manifested trap
A pitfall that always seems to drag me in
The rut that makes me begin to hate my skin
Darker are the thoughts of death that constantly creeps like a flood that will never cease
Until She reaches for me in the darkness to be the light of my release.
She is the tiniest spark of hope that never dies
She is the one that saves me as she looks into my eyes
Always close to me, but yet so far away
I wish I could reach for her…reach for her everyday
But depression holds me tight like a demon to a soul
SO until I beat this darkness, I feel I will never be whole
Deceitful LiarI fabricate lies into existence and twist tales into elaborate truths,Deceitful Liar19 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My personality is a patchwork quilt with stitches of deceit and betrayed trust,
one that began many years ago and still continued to this day,
The needles and pins of hard cold metal have begun to rust away
one by one they fall from the material, unravelling my disguise,
until I lay bare, my shame and manipulation clear to the world's eye.

She has stardust in her hair,
In her lips.
Her eyes are just planets
Out of space.
She leaves starry footprints
She blinds everybody

The sky got much brighter

TomorrowTomorrow's such a scary propositionTomorrow25 minutes ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It's the possibility of failure, and of regret
Songs that are never sung, words never penned
And too many yesterdays have yet to be forgotten
Tomorrow's also the continuance of a heart's survival
another night conquered with knives under pillows
Songs that are sung, words penned guide revival
as a testament to trauma and the pain that follows
But with the conviction to grit our teeth and carry on
No matter the turbulent current we happen to be upon
~Hidden~~Hidden~~Hidden~1 hour ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Like the galaxies of stars
Behind the blinding light
Like a bird behind bars
Longing to fly the sky's height
My soul is trapped within the darkness
Silent as the silver snow
Motionless and blind in the blackness
Without a grin, nor a tear to show.
As calm as the sea at day
Though hiding violence deep within
Forever speechless, voiceless, not a thing to say.
No companion, friend, ally nor kin.
Captured by denial and hatred,
I stay calm, though strong
Without any intent to stain my hands with blood red,
I wait for you to, once again, sing your serene song.

I don't know where you are, but I hope they shine bright.
Because they have a message, from me to you,
And that message will be forever true.
Is it raining where you are, tonight?
I hope that you will sleep light.
I know that everything will be fine for you,
And that you shine brighter than me, dear.
Can you hear the river, tonight?
I hope it rocks you to sleep tight.
It holds my whisper in its arms,
And let that whisper wash away your harms.
Is the moon shining there, tonight?
I hope it doesn't shine too bright.
I hope it lets you sleep tight.
I hope that you are sleeping light.
I hope that you looked at the stars tonight,
I hope you saw them shining bright,
I hope you saw and heard my message, from me to you,
The message that I miss you,
That I love you.

half full half empty and half assed
i cant count the time i spent in bed
days and weeks in my own head
final my pupils escape their cage
eyes open up to reveal a new age
eras have passed and time is renewed
another life i live without needing you
there is writing on this wall and a crack in the sky
the hardest truth to tell is softer than a lie.

Two parts spice
Play me once
I'll break you twice....
Cuz in the end
You're just like them
A fake, a joke
Someone to condemn
The hope and the excitment
I thought that'd you'd stay
But that hope is now gone
It has withered away.
It's cool, I'm fine, I'll get through.
Silly ol' me
Thought I could trust you.
Thanks once again
For letting me feel
All these broken pieces
That just started to heal.

For a long time
A comic book 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
To the heavens
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
He tries to change history
When he forgets
Where he came from
Doesn't he understand
She made so many
So he could have
A chance in this world
Maybe he needs
When he gets righteous
To put him
In his place
Be his Lex Luthor
With a rock
To bring him to his knees
I would like to be
His Lex Luthor!

Thought my lesson was learned
No thanks to you
Da Prez got burned
If that wasn't enough
Another crossed the line
But I'm staying tough
You know I'll be fine
You can't take it back
A friend has been lost
The memories now black
And that is the cost.

All her chances
Were taken away
Made long ago
Would come back
To haunt her
She saw the red flashing lights
And her cell phone rang
She told him
On one rainy day
Wanted to see him again
But when her world
Down around her
He was there
He learn't long ago
That is what
She could never see
He was there all along
Never really gone
Until the night
The red flashing lights
And her chances
Were all gone
The red flashing lights
And her chances
Were all gone...

I don't expect you to understand my fears I just want you to support me when I do get scared and not judge me for having those fears. I mean do you think i like being cared of the things i am of course not but i cant help how i feel. I Hate feeling weak, scared and helpless but somefimes i feel those things an when i do i panic an hyperventalate i find it hard to breath an i cry uncontrollably. My body shakes an trembles so much you can feel it. I have some rational an irrational fears i know this so i dont need anyone telling me these fears are mine an mine alone.

And I don't seem to care,
Because what's the point in having
Something that's never there,
He asks if I will miss him,
If his lost presence will be felt?
Part of me wished not to answer,
Not to look at him and melt,
I said "Just because I'm leaving,
Doesn't mean I didn't love you so,
Doesn't mean I want to depart,
Doesn't mean I want to let you go;
It's hard to say these feelings,
God, it's hard to know your heart!
For I hate you with a passion,
Yet love you like an art..."
I could see him thinking
Of the words he wished to say,
Perhaps a long forgiveness
Asking me to take him back today,
Perhaps a sigh of nothing,
Things happen, people change?
You live your life,
Making the best of what remains;
He said "I would say something,
Honestly I would,
But right now I just feel nothing,
Honestly I wish I could."
His voice was filled with sadness,
His face composed just so,
I wish he'd be a man,
Let his feelings be exposed,
As tears began to fall,
As I tried to say g

th-those words on th-that screen...
just seeing them shatters my core,
were I not able to read them
I would still know what they mean.
I don't want my heart in pieces
lying tattered on the ground...
just the thought hurts my fragile soul,
and I can't hope to forget them––
what is not lost must be found.
And I wish you understood
th-that I'm dying right now...
knowing I've lost you already––
before you were ever called mine––
I yearn for the final bow.
