yet you keep near
hello i am fire

O Beauty...O beauty o beauty so pretty like fall.O Beauty...5 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I wish I never had doubts of it all.
It comes like the wind as you see everyone, the old, the young, physically strong or mentally bold.
What defines who we are if we're pretty or not? What refines the definition is what we call the correct, the normality and the fit in society.
However if I'm not tall or slender even the least absurdly colored, I'm not anything to relate.
Am I the abnormal to be unlike the rest? Am I not shown for who I am abreast those who are pretty?
Must I have such charm, I can never relate, my poetry they say is words of my rule on life yet I am the no one, the no one by fate.
My glory belittle just as my shape, my timid voice not deepened like the eyes of the sea, my hands to frail and my pigment to strange.
I am not seen by the world not even for a day.
Who am I if everyone considers me ugly, if I must not mumble a word because they say I am not lonely. They decide what I should do because by their logic I am a fool.

I always await your next letter or call.
A foundation so strong, it seems made of stone.
What a wonderful friendship we have sewn.
Your support was there, stronger than any wall.
You’re always there for me, a constant much like the sun.
To see your face I would run, walk, even crawl.
I’ve always played, attempting to never be outdone.
I am supposed to be your strong one,
Why should I have to break down and bawl?
In a sense you are gone, but you’ll always be there.
I’d love nothing more than to give you one more hug.
I often feel that without you here, life is not fair!
There’s too much for us left to do, so much to share.
Our memories I keep locked in my heart, there they stay snug.
It took me a while to realize the truth…
I’m not just your friend, you are mine too.
It has us for years, way back to our youth.
We’ve been apart for years now, and I receive much ruth.
You’re my best friend, thr

In the darkness, I resolved.
I believed you would come.
and patiently I waited.
Silently I waited.
Hours passed, I sat alone.
In the quiet still.
silently I waited.
painfully I waited
as my heart was torn
as the sun sat and rose
painfully I waited.
in agony I waited
for you to remember me
still sitting in this room alone
in agony I waited.
All that time I waited
for you to come and sit by me
to tell me you still loved me
all that time I waited.
Year passed and I waited
isolated by my hope that you remembered
me, sitting waiting patiently
the years passed and I waited.
And even though I waited
you were lost in yourself, detracted
living your life without me
even though I waited.
Dying as I waited
the days and years and wasted tears
the crumbled hopes, the time I cared
Dying as I waited.
As promised I've been waiting,
you said you would return to me
that soon your heart would find peace
so as promised I've been waiting.
The end has come to waiting

Don't Walk Away...My struggle grows larger with each passing dayDon't Walk Away...2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My mind always plays back the things that you'd say
I wish I could know why you just could not stay
But instead I'm alone now and you've gone away
Was it something I said that did cause you such pain?
Was it your own pride or d'you something to gain?
I wish I knew how that you I could attain
But instead I'm alone as my spirit does wane
So I sit here in hell as I scream at the night
Wishing so badly for something that's right
To hope for and want you with all of my might
But instead I'm alone and you're out of my sight
This void in my heart grows more vast with each day
As I sit and I ponder and think of the ways
That you could have told me as each day I prayed
But I found myself dying as you walked away...
I look to the stars and think only of you
And think back in time of a passion so true
When each day I cherished and treasured and knew
That without you I'm nothing and hopeless and blue
The others will tell me 'grow stronger each day'

That caused this hunk of flesh to feel
Hid from me what would reveal
My inner self and center soul
For you, passions went down the drain
I killed them off, removed all pain
And found myself with nothing gained
But for you I kept control
For you, I threw myself away
Not even despair could stay
I sat and wished for yesterday
A golden time when I was whole
For you, I snapped, set myself free
Showed you how a heart’s disease
Hidden under lock and key
Grows to fury uncontrolled

From the war on my heart
Why I was torn apart
But that’s the past
I've moved on since that day
Even if you’re not the last
I have found another way
I can’t take another fight
I will awake to the dawn
So long and good night
I've always just been a pawn

I cannot scream.
I cannot speak my mind,
Or talk about my dreams.
Something is missing,
And will be gone forever.
I cannot speak,
My words cannot be like a feather.
Give it back,
Give it back to me.
Taken away from me.

all the strangers who only consider me just another.
My heart beats fast and I feel the need to hide
hide behind the baggy hoodie that makes me
feel as if I am invisible to all their eyes.
But then they stare, the stares that make
my skin crawl and shiver.
Please don't notice me, don't speak to me,
don't look at me!
Through the halls I stay silent,
they whisper and speak of others.
Who is next to talk about? Me, because of
my silence you mistake me as preppy.
The fact I won't speak back, I try hard to
speak but the words feel like rocks in my throat!
I sit among friends, and yes I speak very quietly.
But I hope not to be noticed...
for I am quiet because of my anxiety....
Nothing To NobodyHave you ever wonderedNothing To Nobody14 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
What it feels to be loved
Then treated like your nothing
When your love wasn't enough
And do everything you can
To get yourself away
Because you want to live
And have your own say
Have you not ever thought
That in order to move on
You need to have a break
From being with that one
The one who called you selfish
For trying to be happy
The one who still demotes me
Did you really never see?
I thought you were a friend
I thought that you were smart
Yet MY loyalties were questioned
When I did not play the part
Maybe I didn't like
That you were closer to my ex
Was it not clear enough
All he wanted was my sex
You've told me that you know
What it feels to be broken
And I never doubted that
But by the way you've spoken
I'm starting to wonder
What you really think of me
Am I in the wrong
Did you really think he loved me
I wondered what you thought
To, instead of me, pick him
And always be so friendly
When to me he was so grim
But now I think I know
And that's what makes me

The thought of you still burns the same
I can't even bear to hear your name
Your picture still hangs loosely
On a wall marked with tallies.
I lost you
And now I fear I myself
Will never be found

Stain your blade and bleed me dry.
Hold me close with razor hands,
Catch my heart before it lands.
Whisper poison in my ear,
All the things I need to hear.
Promise me the starless sky,
That hides behind a perfect lie.
But perfect always falls apart
All my love,
-A broken heart.

Head down and tuck your wings in.
Look down but pick up your shoulders,
Beat, though your arms feel like boulders.
No time to cool in the spray,
No time to feel the sun's ray.
There's one way to get there,
It's as straight as a line.
Though the path's hard to bear,
I'm making you mine.
BlindI fuck up a lot, though it seems natural in this society,Blind4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But when I'm all alone I just fill with this anxiety.
So I'm stuck writing these lines in this place that I call home.
You see my mind can take me far, to Paris or even Rome.
Seems the reality of it all is we can't be left to fall
Cause when we let our selves go it's the wrong person who's standing tall.
They take their power and their rights and shove it down your throat,
It's nothing but pain that you feel, are you ready to take a vote?
Will you be the one let's them self go?
Gave everything up just because you didn't know.
Who was there who really cared all along you didn't see,
That everyone loved the person that only you could be.

A pile of shards in my chest.
Of all the things I've written,
Its story was the best.
Through my words you walk,
Through lines of despair,
Over letters filled with pain,
You read without a care.
But my blackened pen still writes,
On paper stained with tears,
I wait for you to read it,
My scream that no one hears.

nesse mar lúgrube
Só torna mais fúnebre
Essa maldita charada
Pegue em minha mão estendida
Deixe-me te içar
Eu prometo te contar
Sobre minha felicidade incontida
Deixe a ilusão te dopar
Sinta esse gosto grato
Te mostrar de bom grado
Que tudo se pode amar
Sonhe mais uma vez
Sem ligar se pode acontecer
Mesmo se nada for fazer
Eles se cumprirão, talvez
Viver o real
Apenas traz dor
Venha usar do amor
Mesmo que seja virtual
a quiet pleaYou’re sweet, and I hope you stay that waya quiet plea6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You’re passive, and that’s just fine
But I’m just as scared any way
Damn it’s hard to make shit rhyme
My heart is awake now
After being cold and dead for so long
I’m not so proud of being a gloomy crow
But I’m not the kind to belt out in song
About the day and how every things so great, when it’s not
I’m in pain most days pain of the heart
It’s not as simple as I thought
When your soul is worlds apart
From everyone else, but I put that aside
All the pain in my chest
It’s hidden inside
Held under arrest
When I am with you, I shove away the depression
To focus on more important things, like you and me
So I guess this is my confession
I try not to think
Try not to do or let the anguish find the door
I try not to blink
For fear it’ll creep back up inside and consume my heart once more
I’m still scared some days that it’ll come back
But with you it stays away

Don’t let her see that my heart is aching
That my body is breaking
She can’t see me like this
Can’t hear the whisper from my lips
I need help
I need to stop these feelings in my midst
Stop them from getting any grip
Why won’t you help
Can’t let the cry sound from my throat
All alone I start to choke
I can do this all by myself
I’ll show you all that I don’t need you
I can take care of her myself
I can make everything alright
“Are you ok?”
“Of course, mija, why wouldn’t I be?”

the way she smiles and laughs.
Why did it come down to this,
I am over her by now. Even so,
Her hazel eyes drive me crazy
the way she refuses to look at me
when she speaks with me.
I moved on, I got over her.
The love she said she felt wasn't real.
Thats why I fell in love with someone new.
Even so, this girl made my heart flutter.
I was happy with her, her amazing eyes,
the way she spoke,her art, just her. But...
It ended like normal, we broke up.
And this time, I'm not going back to anyone.
I started over again, now its him and I understand
why things go like they do.
He smiles at me, when he says he loves me
he means it because I can tell by the look
in his eyes as he smiles and his face
flushes that soft red.
Then again, I'm still a little broken
so I hope he can deal with my insecure
behavior,and the way I doubt myself.
My anxiety, though he knows its there
I still fear to admit to him...
who I am.
I know he won't love me any less,
but I'm scared

Never again shall I cross the line
This world will soon be defined
Simple minded beings crossing the plains
The ways of the world must be changed
Wars across the world unfold
Revelations are now being told
Never forget who we are
Cellular beings made in the image of God
But we've pushed him aside and let our minds wander abroad
Voices in our heads leading us astray
Thinking we are gods, but were really in dismay
Destruction and terror reign forever
Soon all life as we know it will be severed
Guns firing, planes crashing
People burning, buildings collapsing
Death and Famine, War and Plague
Wiping us away, it seems so vague
This planet called Earth is slowly being drained
The crippling forces at work are totally insane
Never forget who we are
Laboratory rats trapped in a maze
Greedy politicians are who we give praise
This planet is the Devil's breeding ground
He's got mankind's arms and legs bound
Take a look all around and see
Life's one great big tragedy

So you think your so special.
Just because of what we are.
So you think you can say things.
Just because we share a bond.
So you think its indestructible.
This lie that I've been told.
All of my fucking life?
If its in the past.
All of that crap.
All of the smacks.
Then we can just forget.
We can just forgive.
We can just fall in.
And take it all in.
So you think your special.
Just because of the past.
So you think your special.
Just because you can do math.
