Beware Of The Bad BoySo he touches you in all of the right placesBeware Of The Bad Boy1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But with a clenched fist and not a gentle hand
By ‘right places’ I mean those easily hidden
By the latest expensive designer brand
Which he buys you to either keep your silence
Or to beg and to plead for your forgiveness
Is this where the attraction of a bad boy lies?
Please explain where is the excitement in this?
So he kisses you with a so-called passion
His hands round your neck steal a two letter word
It seems that he cannot feel satisfaction
Unless you show him signs that his dominance hurts
Which he tightens each time to keep your silence
Or maybe he just enjoys hearing you moan
Is this the deed of some stalker, some stranger?
No, this is your husband and this is your home
So he lays you out on the living room floor
I wonder what will fall down to the carpet first
The drops of blood from between your legs
Or the tears flowing between his regretful words
Which he whispers in your ear as you lay silent
It’s safe to say
The Villain (Bye Bye Mr. Nice Guy)I am desperately seeking someone to save meThe Villain (Bye Bye Mr. Nice Guy)16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Wondering where I have been going wrong
The more I allow myself to be walked over
The more I feel like it’s where I belong
Under the tread marks of your rubber soled shoe
My face has been driven in to the mud
You’ve laced my dignity with so much self doubt
What on earth have I gained from being good
I am desperately seeking something to save me
The next line to the poem of my life
Dissecting my past with clinical precision
Using a pen-shaped surgical knife
With a blade that seems to cut deeper and deeper
Each time that I am wounded or I am hurt
But maybe now is the time to put down my pen
And distribute my anger with more than words
I am desperately seeking something to save me
I feel I’m on the cusp of a rebirth
I will take centre stage and leave you in the wings
There is no more time left to rehearse
I have stiffened the sinews, I have summoned the blood
I face my fears and I’ve made a decision
I can be strong, I can
WordsIt’s when I get my thoughts to rhymeWords5 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
That I can truly start to see
What has been swirling in my mind,
And then I get to set it free.
A turmoil of chaotic calls
Becomes a desperate, pleading choir
Of thousands of tangled words
Awaiting me to help them thrive.
They cry, and weep, and beg like kids,
Won’t let me drown myself in sleep
Until I give them what they need –
A string of rhythm and sense to grip.
I strive and strive to make them speak
And give them a melodic vibe.
Yet their presence is too weak,
I'm losing hope that they'll survive.
But after stumbling time and time
Again to let them slip away
I start to hear their chime.
I start to see them find a way.
So one by one and step by step
I see them coming up to me.
They join to spin a magic web –
My soul’s true epitome.
And that’s the place they shall remain,
In subtle, fearless accord.
I never thought that I could tame
Such mischievous, capricious words.
So now I’m pacing back and forth

as were the smiles that you so affectionately cast towards me.
But then you tossed me into the gaping sea,
and I am no longer a beloved queen to thee.

Oh what tender lips are these that lay sweet kisses on my cheeks
Making my bashful heart sing...sing...sing
Sweet Music Melody lend a mid-night song to me
Oh what beautiful notes your voice is to a lover's song
beckoning a drifting soul home sweet home

Play your seductive heart's song again and again
Step by step, song by song, you and I are forever one
She Does Not Love YouDo not hearShe Does Not Love You4 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Her glorious speech
Pretend to be deaf.
Elude her hair
Dancing in the air
Don’t think about
Those sunny eyes
Knowing your past
With just one look.
Avoid her laugh
A melody of harp
Played by angels.
She’s hurting you
Giving you false
When she reveals
All her evil plan
You will be broken
Thinking about suicide.
Bury the memories
With you by her side
Even if they are
The best times
Of your life.

So right in my hand.
With the ability,
To do what only I can.
Ideas fly from my mind,
In a manner, distraught.
But they stick to my pen,
Writers with their problems,
Ideas with their wings.
But take your imagination,
And shoot down the damn things

A Rainy PlaceWandering roads that branch so I can never seeA Rainy Place5 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Where the path I choose will likely carry me
Then comes the fear
As apprehension looms above
Like the cloud I am always victim of
Driest days are still enough to make me drown
Happy plays go on in side my little crown
But always in
To show these thoughts enlightening
Speed up the coming derailing
Conclusions crash from up above
To think my mind was stronger stuff
A paper boat
In sea that grows around my feet
The longer I wait with all the thoughts I keep
Mask the way with rain as paved paths taper on
The traveller who must be gone
Then comes the pain
How I cannot be one of them
Who takes a gamble on a whim
Yesterday was long before the one I made
I forget how many of them passed the same
My will is only weakening
Come future I will not be able swimming
Earth to break from where I stand as water falls
Wash the state lethargic I am victim of
Unable to move
Even when all offered it slowly takes
With nothing left I will not wake
StargazingCome with me and stay a whileStargazing1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To marvel at the night sky
For darkness brings forth beauty
That daylight might disguise
Oh how the heavens simply teem
With spritely dancing hues
That paint the blackness up above
In purples, pinks, and blues
And did you know that the stars
Are the best at telling a story
About dancing bears or a mighty hunter
Or a hero's road to glory
And the moon sings me to sleep
With a celestial lullaby
And whispers an offer in my ear
To join him in the sky
But then I fall asleep
And the stars still shine
And the colors still dance
And I'll have nothing but these dreams of mine
These dreams that tempt me
To leave this world behind
For a life amongst the stars
Where there's adventure worth to find
But as much as I'd love to go
I know that I must stay
That's why I need you here with me
'Cause I'm afraid I'll drift away
AwakenThere were days I doubted I’d make it through the stormAwaken1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And each trickle of shame, each moment of pain, each year the same, oh how I mourned
But, just like the blind, I groped alone empty walls, hoping to find a light
While in the dark, my weary soul cried out to give up the fight
There were days when the battles raged so deep inside
That I made a deal with the devil to be my guide
But the emptiness of his wisdom only lead me astray
And the sacrifice of his prize was too high a price to pay
There were days I feared my soul would be consumed by the fires
And my retched tears would conquer my desires
To escape my clinching woes
Of dismal, dark shadows
There were days when doubt left my heart in such bitter defeat
That among the strong, I stood so very weak
And the hollow winter of despair left me so very cold
That I could no longer stand on my own
But then one day, one Summer's grace, everything changed
And from darkness to light, freedom was proclaimed
From a heavenly mercy that s
Blaming is for the weakYou blame it all on meBlaming is for the weak2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But the truth you do not see
You lied right from the start
Just to win over my heart
You did not act your age
When you turned the other page
We could have worked it out
But now I am in doubt
That you ever really tried
Because all you did was hide
You told a one sided story
Just looking for some glory
Sold a fairy tale
Now I find you are quite stale
Everything you emulate
Is something that I hate
You told me you were strong
Stringing me along
You were afraid of everything
Now I see your broken wing
Thinking of the day
When your troubles fade away
Your refusal to act on them
Leaves you nothing more than a whim
I do not have the time
To be subjected to your crime
Now I can see it's true
That the weak one is you

by my dubious reaction
to a well-timed interaction
that once caught me by surprise.
In the absence of direction,
just a simple course correction
in a moment of reflection
has now opened up my eyes.
:: Dziecieca prosba ::Siedziała na ławce,:: Dziecieca prosba ::1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Wiatr włosy rozwiewał,
O pomoc prosiła,
Nikt dłoni nie podał.
Ziemię łzami rosiła,
Nie chciała czuć bólu,
Bóg się nie zlitował,
Było coraz gorzej.
Modliła się codzień,
Wznosząc dłonie ku niebu,
Nie dała się złamać,
Nadzieję wciąż miała.
"Wiem, że ludzie żyją gorzej,
Nie mają rodzin czy dachu nad głową,
Jednak, Panie, proszę o jedno,
Błagam, wysłuchaj samolubnego życzenia."
"Pragnę tylko jednej, bliskiej mi osóbki,
Którą mi Panie Boże zabrałeś.
Czemuż to jego czas nastał tak nagle?
Zabrał do grobu resztki mego szczęścia."
"Więc proszę Cię, błagam, zwróć mi go na moment,

Yesterday to soon turns into tomorrow
But today is never twice the same
And in heavenly stars I search, but I have yet to find my way
Still, as time continues to march on, my soul can find no resting place
In the mist of this violent quake
Of many dimensions of being I lies awake
Until the hours of dark meet a brilliant day break
leaving me to, once again ponder an uncertain fate

Nie zbliżaj się do mnie!
Czy tego nie widzisz?
Upiję się krwią,
Ty będziesz nieżywy,
Zabity przez Nią.
Nie umiem panować
Nad tą drugą stroną,
To ona mną żądzi,
My w jej sidłach
Nie zbliżaj się więcej,
Jeśli Ci życie miłe.
Nie chcę już krzywdzić,
Ranić i krzyczeć
Me życie zawiłe.

A beautiful shrine encased in woven straw and pine
Sits atop its pedestal as a symbol of life and love
A wonderful gift of innocence from above
Flowers are to a man’s heart peace, pleasure and love
From enemies to lovers their powers are great
Ladies wear its lovely fragrance to compliment their sweet face
While poets speak her name in romantic grace
Painters sketch her loveliness in pastels and soft lace
Such as the colors of a rainbow so pure and full of hope
A beautiful shrine encased in woven straw and pine
Sits atop its pedestal a symbol of life and love

Słowo odbija się w ciemnościach,
Kiedy biegnąc przed siebie
Potykam się o własne nogi
Czołgam się między winoroślami,
Splecione one ze wspomnień,
Kostka zaplątana w roślinę,
Ona czai się w ciemnych zaułkach,
Znajdzie w mig moją kryjówkę,
Nie mogę dać się złapać
Gra w chowanego nie jest zabawna,
Wygrana przeważa na życiu bądź śmierci,
Chyba przegram tę rundę,
Don't Shut Me OutDon't do it, just back awayDon't Shut Me Out7 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I don't want to hear what you have to say
Cause if I do, I know I'll get attached
Which will make it hurt more when we've detached
I don't want to get to know you
Because then I'll care about everything you do
I'll be sad when your sad, I'll smile when you smile
And the world will seem right for a while
Right up until you close me off once more
Sealing me outside your door
Right up until you become a brick wall
Never telling me what's wrong or anything at all
When that day comes I'll regret the day we met
Because that was the day I made the wrong bet
That you'd be different and never shut me out
Not saying a word till I start to scream and shout
Cause what you apparently don't seem to see
Is that when we became friends you became a part of me
So your sorrows are mine as well as your joy
My care is not some well crafted ploy
When you leave me out, I can tell and It pains me so
To sit here and not be told anything when I know
That something bothers you,

Look not for love,
But search only for hope,
For love alone is a mere brick;
As every storm passes over, it breaks down over time.
But should you live off true hope,
That brick only can one day form part of a wall.

The Moon a ghostly gallon
[Spirits in a mason jar]
Tossed into our cloudy throats
[Moonshine never travels far]
Windy dark pulls at our coats
[Spirits tempt us to our doom]
We will rise above our sins
[We must make our choices soon]
Back home, will they let us in?
Judged by SinnersYou think you've found a sinner,Judged by Sinners1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Because you've judged by looks.
You'll drown in fired hypocrisy,
Along with your idolized books.
You think you've found a freak,
Because your intellect reigns supreme.
You'll hang with your treasured I.Q.
Your stupidity makes me scream.
You think you've found an object of hate,
Because you think you're better than I.
You'll be buried in your false glory,
And I'll be the one with my head raised high.
