Gaelan's LullabyTell me why you had to goGaelan's Lullaby4 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Did you fall in the dirt, or in the snow?
I've lost nearly everyone, from the start
Now you left me with this emptiness in my heart
Don't tell me that it will all be well
For my life is already a bitter Hell
Would you have loved me throughout our years?
But now you aren't even here, to dry my tears
You have always watched over my sister, Vahl
A brother's duty, I was doomed to fail
And as I was fighting on a foreign field
You became her sword and her shield
Tell me please where your body lies
I just want to at least close your eyes
Tell me the names of those who ended your life
So that I may put them to my knife
So tell me where you wandered to
Fields of green or the sky of blue
Please tell me that when I die, you will be the first that I'll see
Tell me Lydia... Why did you leave... Me?
At a DistanceAt a DistanceAt a Distance11 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
I keep myself far away
So that I may enjoy my Day
Ignoring men’s endless scars
So that I can go drink at the bars.
But why, isn’t isolation the bane
That will drive most insane?
Not for me, what do they care
If I go bald or pull out my hair?
At a distance I’ll stay so I’ll be at peace
I don’t want to mourn or be on someone’s emotional leash
Why? Simply because I’m human, why all the fuss?
You never cared about my work so I’m not going to cuss
Over you, him, her, not over any folk
So don’t lump me in the same bowl of yolk
As you people, didn’t you know?
That I’m not going to be a part of your show.
If that hurts you, then have fun with that.
Now whine and cry as I play with my cat

From an unconscious abyss
That is too easily inspired
Red that reminds me of roses
In which causes me to write
A poem about blood
Where somewhere in my mind
Images of a certain person's death
Raging on, their blood on my hands
Yet, all I sense on the outside
Is the scent of a simple red rose
Filling the imaginative air
Tuesday BluesMy baby is a singer, but she only knows one song.Tuesday Blues9 hours ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Oh yes, she is a singer, but she only knows one song.
And when I try to sing it, she says I'm doing it wrong.
My baby is a driver, and I'm always saying please.
Well, my baby is a driver, and I'm always saying please.
But no matter how I ask her, she won't give me the keys.
My baby is an agent of a very high power.
I believe she is an agent of a very high power.
That power may be love - I have to check that with her.
He gave me a dollWhen you first met him he gave me a dollHe gave me a doll14 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Green bonnet, dress, and blonde hair.
You brought him in to live with us
and I loved the doll and him.
It’s been five years since he left
I’ve lost the doll
I hope he has the worst death imaginable
He’s killed us mentally.
I don’t know who you are anymore
I’m still learning who I am
Making up for what I lost
My insecurities will one day fade
My confidence is starting to grow
My perspective was dimmed
My hatred will never end
Yes, I don’t do anything
but you don’t like to give recognition.
My motivation goes so far. I only want to make you proud.
I want to love you more, but I can’t.
You’ve changed because of him.
Please don’t show me with your words

Pent up in a chest

Creaking and trembling
Under the weight
A rusted out bridge
Soon to fall to the water
Unable to swim

BeyondWhen I walked between buildingsBeyond19 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
The shadows of my life on their walls
When I ran beneath the stars
And sang of loss with my ancestors
When I lay with you and smiled
In the shadow of the hill
That only I can see
It calls to me, but you cannot hear.

I cannot release my need,
suppress my urge
to come to you
where all the world seems

and I can find peace,
inside of you.
And I am afraid
because I have never had anything,
I have never had

I have you
and I have all of this
love and desire
seering inside of me,
to be released
so that I may bathe you
in the glory

Inner StarIt is the inner star that will burn through your insidesInner Star4 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Streaming through veins and through tears
Through love unbeknownst to those who cannot see what is born
Through what is hidden behind warm irises
There are times when it is too much to bare
And it is hard to remember who you are or where you stand...
Until you remember that even the darkest days only seem that way.
BrayThe braying wind’s shrill echoBray6 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
From melting drift to hill
Shivering the quiet
And the crunch of boots
Upon half-dissolved snow becomes hypnotic.
You have weathered beautifully
Among the cur grasses and cattail reeds;
Whippoorwill calls provide your static.
The crunch and mire mean nothing to you.
Getting there and back again
Makes her prime, cherry
And still we thumbed out something more.

I could have told you

Because it certainly wasn’t

If I could have seen you,

Little Johnny Martello
from up the street
came in today. I was
minding him because
Mr. Martello was still
at work and Mrs. M
was at the doctor’s.
He’d be as old as
you, or near enough.
Thin black hair cropped
short, shorter than I’d like,
but it made me think of
your hair and who took
you to the hairdresser’s,
and who decided on your
style. Who? Who are you?
I wish I knew.
Sometimes I turn to find
your hand, as if I had
always held it, instead
of never. How big must
you be now? Already in
school, going well, surely.
I dreamt of you last night.
Sometimes I forget about
you, what with Jerem
EpiphanyEpiphanyEpiphany1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
All these words
I forgot to tell you
Haunt my dreams at night
Restless, I lie awake
Thinking of you -
Wondering why I feel like I do
Why my thoughts are of you..
Why it matters so much
To know what you think,
What you feel,
What you dream,
What you want..
A never-ending kaleidoscope
Of emotions swirl within my chest
Leaving me confused
Searching my soul for meanings
That perhaps my brain has denied
For so long I fretted
Over the pull you seem to have on me..
But you knew that, didn't you?
In this whirlwind I fail to notice
The hours that tick by as I ponder
Remembering your smile
Your twinkling eyes
The soul within...
It is when the night turns to day
That I've come to realize...
I have loved you, all along.
Grass To MetalWatching the straight streets,Grass To Metal6 hours ago in Haiku & Eastern More Like This
And the people walking them,
This world is not what it used to be before.
It was not meant to be this way,
But it's too late now.
Watching the grass turn to metal,
Buildings replacing the trees,
Happiness that once ruled has disappeared,
Sadness takes it's place.
It's not enough for them, it's never enough.
Watching, the smoke has blackened the sky,
Watching, the world changing.
Grass turns to metal.
And so it goes on.
It never ends.

Still With YouFogged breath upon pink lips —Still With You25 minutes ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Hidden cyan eyes…
A fading touch on finger tips
And hushed cries.
Gallons of dirt tossed into the ground,
Layering—stack upon stack.
Six feet under where a body is found,
Faced forward, lying on their back
Pinkish cheeks align a face,
Where a story in sunset eyes is told.
Fiery hair caresses the face.
They breathe out fog in the cold.
The expression upon that young form
Is vague in emotion.
These eyes held the story of a storm
That spoke of utter devotion.
The time of the past is slowly fading
And a plea is spoken out softly.
“Let me be still with you…” they tried persuading,
But a resting heartbeat leaves them lonely.
Only do they wish for it become true
And find out what they mean.
“Let me be still with you…”
Oh, how those words aren’t serene.
