ImmortalityWhat is it like to be immortal?Immortality3 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
I've always wanted to know
Living the same way for eternity
Not sure if you can escape
Or even feel like escaping
But escape isn't on your mind right now,
you're living in a beautiful lie
Now comes the time when things get ugly
You're thirteen and you have a family of your own
And while that family grows,
you stay the same
Soon you're kneeling by the hospital bed
Listening to your elderly children beg to you:
"Come with us, mother, come with us please."
Deep in your heart you want to go but you can't
And you watch as everyone you love flicker out like candles
Perhaps you can witness the end of the world
And you'd still be alive
Even suicide won't let you go
Immortality has it's icy fingers wrapped around you
Never releasing you from it'd grip
No one can hear scream with loneliness from inside your heart
What is it like to be immortal?
I never want to know
A Kiss not Forgotten (a special tribute)(This is a tribute to Ray Smith, and of his immortal love for his wife Jeanette.A Kiss not Forgotten (a special tribute)22 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Ray passed away on December 1st, 2013; and far too early – leaving the world
bereft of a great man)
Like a frost spread across valleys silent and dreary,
ever my longing lost in shimmers of shadow & wind
And days bled into years, the seas became deserts
But thoughts of thee would not perish
Thru memories untamed I staggered far and long;
upon solemn nights lit by the torch of your soul
O’ how deep I miss your fragrant cheer ..
Of warm evenings shared across Lake’s reverie,
watching horizons journey into Autumn’s dream
— wherest our hearts once bloomed a fabled sky
Those passions shared will forsake me not
Lest the Moon would bestow solace upon my ache:
I will lay marooned, haunted by thy seraphic-figure,
Or the ever fleeting caress of your gaze ...
So my soul shall yield to this mythic abyss; –
as I peer from my carriage to Nirvana
And thou away, from my arm

get comfy and tell me a story.
Tell me about how it used to be,
tell me about those days of glory.
Tell me all about those classic ladies,
how they always maintained a state of grace.
The way they always smelled like daisies,
and always had on the most pleasant face.
Tell me how those ladies revered their bodies,
and the way to get in was earned with respect.
You called them lady, they didn't answer to hottie,
anything less they would flat out reject.
Tell me all about those bold men of character,
how they lived lives of virtue and common sense.
How they stood by their morals and didn't stagger.
Taking only what they earned, no sense of entitlement.
Tell me how they managed their priorities,
"A man don't work, then a man don't eat."
How they took care of their responsibilities,
the family came first, then maybe a personal treat.
Tell me all about the innocent youth,
and how they didn't mature before their time.
How they only knew to live by the truth,

Without you raising a fuss about it
You might take my boyfriend
You might take my pride
You might scorn my blood color
But you better watch out, ‘cause the Handmaid’s comin’ for
I’m the Witch of Time, you gotta keep that in mind
Your God is a faceless puppeteer
Who spies on you with my eyes
My name is Damara Megido
I’ve got a grip on you, I’m keeping you close
You fail to know who I am
So I might as well say... ‘cause I’m getting bored now
These are my inner thoughts
The depths of my brain, the engine of the train
I just want to tell you all
I’m watching the clock ring for your downfall
You act like an animal
While I was a slave
You “mend” what’s already fixed
And break it your way
You trot with your little herd
I gallop alone
The bull that rages inside
Will ram your horse down!
I’m the Witch of Time, you gotta keep

I am the ears,

I am the voices,

I am the eyes,

I am a daughter,
to a hurtful family.
I am a sister,

But I am strong,

I am alive,

I am unique,
in every aspect of my life.
I am creative,
when I find the joy to do so.
I am me,
and that's all I care about.
I am beautiful,
even if depression tells me otherwise.
Despite of my past,
I am still here to this day.
To fight the battle of depression,
and tell people that I am mean to have a life.
I will always be me,
a strong woman there is.
I will find my path into the light,
and that is when I will finally be Free

Written on a black ink canvas,
My words scream for release,
Wishing they could touch the earth.

My words scream for release,
Tearing themselves from my mouth.

AshesWhat am I to you but AshesAshes1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A destroyed version of my self
Fighting battles ever endless
With no fear of downfall
A reputation blown up
In a flash
Pieces scattered ever vastly
Searchers try but then halt
What am I to you but fallen
Tripping over my two feet
Like a broken compass
No direction except south
A life ripped up
By mouths flapping
What am I to you but worthless
A toy with no fun
Tossed away forever abandon
In a trunk of torture boundless
An opinion disrespected
By many far and between
Killed off quickly no compassion
A sign of certain defeat
What am I to you but Scratches
Marking up you perfect door
Causing renovation costly
And Hating your new decor
A depression yearning
Good or bad
What am I to you but gone
Killed off in season one
Forgotten quickly unimportant
Ratings higher since depart
A poet lost in words of sorrow
Considering his opportunities
Soon to be another forgotten

no homeland for which to brag
We never thought it would come to this
forced to open the World's eyes to the lies they miss
When Politics became a joke
we saw the truth amongst the smoke
With every law or rule they make
We see are rights to freedom fake
If you think you're truly free
then dare attack this "Democracy"
Dare to do something right
illuminate the things they would keep from sight
they traded freedom for peace of mind
and hoped to god the public blind
We are the wolves, we are not sheep!
and For Our Freedom, there is no price too Steep!
Show them we will not bow
Show them my wolves, how we Howl!
We are wild, and we are free
If they were smart they would have let us be
But ever since they brought their chains and locks
we've fought back with fists and rocks
We've made an Army with no flag
but Over a Billion Voices we dare to Tag.

Love and HateLove.Love and Hate6 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
What a strange word.
What is love?
Is it a thought?
What happens when you feel love?
Do horrible things happen?
Do wonderful things happen?
Why does this word, so foreign, yet so familiar bring a jolt to my heart?
I hear the word and my stomach jolts.
I say the word and my eyes tear up.
I feel the word and I feel like the happiest person in the world.
Why does love make me feel like this?
Am I in love?
Or do I think I am?
Does the one I love, love me back?
Will they love me back?
Will I still love them?
Why do I love them?
Why do they love me?
Another strange word.
How is it different from love?
How can one hate another?
How can one hate themselves?
Why do we hate?
Why do we love?
What is the point of love?
The point of hate?
Two very different things.
Though they’re not different at all.

They tell me to stand up ''come on, come on, speak up''
and i say ''i can't my emotions are too bottled up, it would be like releasing an atomic explosion'',
then they say ''how will you escape when your too afraid to run away?''
I don't know
I don't know
don't ask me questions i wish i had the answer to,
this life is like a crazy map
you don't choose the destination alone
you just steer and clear the path
for yourself and hope you find a better home.
The Great DescentI was told aboutThe Great Descent11 hours ago in Haiku & Eastern More Like This
this place, where the leaves just
won’t stop falling.
I go there at night
mind and body crushed like ants
in eternal restlessness.
Mountains burst with trees
laughing children crowd around
chains on swings, creaking.
The mountains enrage the wind
branches crash, mad waves on shore
before they freeze again.
I think I might be mad
maybe these trees will tell me -
whisper it in dreams.
The same wind wraps ‘round
my body, and every leaf’s
a spinning frenzy.
One tree looses all leaves
at once - they hurtle at me
as bullets, shining red.

deep in the woods you don't need to see the trees nor its bark.
Never look for the light that doesn't exist,
because all the wonders you seek are surrounded in mist.
There are no dark corners deep in your mind,
all the answers are there for you to find.
Just go outside and look at the brightest star,
and you will soon realise all that you are.
Life is so brief and too soon it drifts by the way,
and closing your mind leaves you nothing to say.
Collect all that you can so you may travel in space,
with plenty to tell when you reach a new place.

My body solid,
Bound to the earth.
My movements fluid,
Emulating the waves.
My soul unburdened,
Free flowing like the ever-moving air.
My desire and passion powerful, dangerous;
Searing outward, the ever burning flame.
Strength is not simply about physical endurance;
Or being able to do tangible actions.
It is also about facing the inner turmoil;
Not sure what to do.
But the ability to quell this and overcome it,
To find an inner calm,
That along with physical strength
Is what marks strength and peace.

Come closer dear, I shall not bark
And melt the black ice away

Where sun turns blood, eclipse the moon
Streaming blight, the sky gone soon
In the fields of lily ponds

Taking paddle, taking fiddle
Putting away vile sickle
Giving love in the riddle
Giving warmth in fuzzy sizzle
And out come the fireflies
The newts croak, the frogs come spoke
As the two stream by, seeing sky
Stuck between night and day
The even shall be the day
When the stringer paddles, plays
For the love in front of laid
Dressed for warmth, watching stars
Shine on waters, and glazing far
The red comes forward, to take the mass
Yet they stay, in the black field pond
The stars stream down on the waters
The flies shine bright, without falter

Brown leaves fall like crepe paper
But land on cement.
Think on why they die,
Why they leave their mother's bough,
Why they aim to fall.
School bell starts ringing,
Memories of slower days,
Big Ben's song rings out.
Around me are trees,
But all I hear is traffic,
Where are the squirrels?
I lose myself here,
Amongst the other bodies,
They don't see the trees.
