Untitled In my hands you lay your lifeUntitled5 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I catch it at the end of my knife
For years I've searched for your relief
Now I'll make your breathing cease
And face your end
This moment took seventeen years
Of us living in all our fears
Relax yourself and come to me
Trust me to set you free
To release you into your next life
With one loving slice
Age of SinYour majesty reflects,Age of Sin5 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Dimmer than before,
A face of grace
Known only in lore.
You're grand light vanished,
With a great clammier in the skies
to bask the world in darkness.
Would such grand valor rise,
Once again in perfection?
Or has such beauty been destroyed
Banishing even resurrection?
Oh valiant angel,
Of land and sky alike,
Have your wings been clipped
Forever eclipsing us in night?
Committed not alone by devils of sin
But by man and his irrefutable vices
To curse the vast majority of men
Should this be our legacy?
Has the reign of righteousness lost,
Cast out by ignorance and greed
to reap the final cost.
Surely the day will heed
A new age in the future.
Where glory can return
And restore us our virtues.
Cane's ContritionA scream of screams, torn at the seams bore likeness to a tuneCane's Contrition9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A dance I danced, a stance entranced stood calling to the moon
Misguided plea did meet with she, she met with some discord
To meet my eye upon some lie ensnared upon a sword
Now in a daze, caught in the haze, impaled a deft derision
A grimaced stare stood to beware this derelict in schism
Denoted now, whilst to her brow repulsed by this attrition
But woe is me and all but he, conniving Cane's contrition.
Leaving YouThe time has come for me to leaveLeaving You10 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Doubting that you will grieve
Doesn't matter because I'm hurt
Treated me just like I'm dirt
I pleaded with you for change
You cursed me when I left ears' range
I'm moving on and I won't cry
I've already wiped my eyes dry
You will learn that I am strong
Something you doubted all along
You thought that I would always stay
You don't listen to what I say
I'm over you, I will not return
This is a lesson that you will learn
I can always find another mate
Hope you see me with my date
Bad Bee Hive-iorExploration into the depths,Bad Bee Hive-ior11 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Has netted me regret,
Don't want to come up yet,
Yet the air down here is thin,
Nothing left to lose or win,
It's just a draw between us,
Gonna have to release my grasp,
Gonna have to take a chance or pass,
Up on this desire,
No need to experience the entire,
Honey is all I need,
Cause when the stings build up,
As the pus drips and oozes out the wounds,
Metaphorically analyzing a situation,
With a woman,
I've just had relations,
Didn't go as planned,
Words Flow From The SoulSpark,Words Flow From The Soul11 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Light it up,
Not talking illegal,
Mean this thing between,
Unseen by those not involved,
Cause they would scathe at the thought,
Of us being together,
Cause of what we went through,
Once up on a time with each other,
But it's a new day,
Those fears we used to have,
Come and gone,
We're sincere in our hearts desires,
Lighting up the path ahead without any fire,
It's just clear in our minds,
In our hearts,
We'll be kind enough to let each other know,
When the flow gets obscured,
Feel the burn,
Cause the passion is intense,
When we vent these frustrations,
Of the lack of sensation,
That we feel from the others,
Yeah we love each other,
But if we "make love" to another tonight,
It won't be the same,
No longer who we were,
In that area,
But the cause remains the same,
We won't remain the same,
Cause we've changed,
For each other.
PossibilityOne moment of action, and all futures shatter;Possibility12 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Outcomes collapse, and a future falls through.
One of two answers, a gamble on quanta -
Yet, left undecided, both answers ring true.
Making decisions will close off new avenues.
Making a choice will end infinite lives.
Existing in parallel, safe, unexamined;
But open the box, and just one path survives.
Is chance ever real? We make life by observing:
Existence is nothing if never perceived.
Reality falters before it is looked at:
Unwitnessed, untrusted, unseen, unbelieved.
Don't look at your future, for then you define it.
Don't open the box, for the atom decides.
In the superposition, your dreams are still possible,
Tangled in nightmares, all ticking inside.
Old HabitsDoing whatever I can to refrainOld Habits14 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
from seeking solace in familiar pain.
Mourning old habits and comforting lies.
Helpless, I watch as a piece of me dies.
Struggling to keep from turning away,
accepting that it has to be this way.
I hope it helps my broken mind to mend,
but still I know that this won't be the end.

Wzbić się na skrzydłach uplecionych z wiary
I polecieć gdzieś wysoko
Przysiąść na puszystym obłoku
Z góry spoglądać na ludzi
Żyjących swoim monotonnym życiem
Podążających znanymi już torami
Pragnę choć raz przerwać schematy
Uwierzyć w coś, co niemożliwe
I choć raz dotknąć błękitu
Zawartego w nieboskłonie.
Dreamy WonderlandSurreal, normal, fearful, or not. A dreamDreamy Wonderland19 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
is a dream is a long, dark, open seam.
A world full of imagination bright
or distopia filled with life so trite.
Induced with the sleep they do manifest
but when I am awake they take their rest.
Whether a walk in a forest of rock
or swim through the clouds inside of a clock.
Stuck in a dark room with eyes all around
or that of a white room devoid of sound.
I am staring in through the looking glass
Finding my wonderland utterly crass.
but the seams of my dreams are now closing
It must mean I have finished my dozing.

of the things
that annoy me
that from them are hid?
but nothing seems to work
in getting them iliminated;
why can't they just die?!
I might even be,
I don't know myself
and can't have peace in my brain.
in my head
and they're so close but so far.
It's taking me
away from reality;
dragging me down to Hell
as if it's an open sea.
But I don't know,
I've lost my ability to think straight,
and I think it's pretty nice down here
where the people on earth think all things here are low.
Contacting this place
will get me no where,
and is about as helpful
as blocking thorns with lace.
I must leave
before they get me again,
before they see me doing this,
because then a penalty I will reciev
A Path of Briars“Sir” He called from the twining woodA Path of Briars1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
“You must return” though on his ground he stood
“Why bother” I cried, a loaded laugh
“The way you walk is another path”
“One much strewn with briar and bramble”
“While mine is merely a pleasant ramble”
“But Sir” His voice a desperate bell
“The path looks easy but the greatest fell”
“From the path in greed and misery”
“The why and how a mystery”
I shrugged at him, a graceful grin
I turned on him, a careless spin.
“I am tired friend” and my voice did shake
“For down that path lies a stranger wake”
“One of pain and memories sad and old”
“My tolerance is used up and sold”
His voice went quiet, a warning note
“There are greater men that God has smote”
I stretched and yawned and looked ahead
At this tranquil path as of heaven read
And with a smile of arrogance and charm
Sonnet for FenrisSonnet for FenrisSonnet for Fenris1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The patterns and the habits of a slave
Are all he knows for endless, painful years
And even once he runs, he can’t behave
As though he’s free; he’s driven by his fears.
The choking hate he raises as a wall
So none may see the pliant slave within.
He tries to raise his eyes and to stand tall
With mage’s shackles carved into his skin
And shoulders bowed against the pending blow.
He watches, and he sees the many ways
That others wear their freedom, as they go
About their simple lives and sweeter days.
He’ll learn that pride and ease, he swears. He’ll try
To break his slave’s mentality, or die.
Sonnet for AndersSonnet for AndersSonnet for Anders1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
He used to be a man, with strengths and flaws.
He laughed and loved; he knew both pain and rage
And desperation at the Chantry’s laws
That punished him, that condemned every mage.
Now that is gone, consumed by cobalt fire
And in its ashes Anders is made new:
A creature of unwavering desire
And ruthless drive. His one bright goal in view
He’s blinded to all else along his way.
His soul’s ablaze with justice, and the light
That shines upon him is the dawning day
All crimsoned with the lifeblood of the night.
The Chantry’s flames are leaping in his heart
As bright as hope, to signal freedom’s start.
Sonnet for Carver and Bethany Sonnet for Carver and BethanySonnet for Carver and Bethany1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Together they were nestled in the womb
And side by side, yet unalike, they grew
She’s peaceful, and her smile can warm a room
He’s looking for some purpose to pursue.
She hears the haunting music of the Fade
And fears to lose herself within its song;
He’s longing to escape their sibling’s shade
And fears he’ll never prove himself that strong.
Their paths split here, and one is marked to die.
The other one may hear the Wardens’ Call
Or perish, under rock and far from sky,
Or serve within the Gallows, ‘til its fall.
They walk together into the unknown
This one last time, before they’re left alone.
Untitled Once more I fall to your graspUntitled1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This

Don't Shut Me OutDon't do it, just back awayDon't Shut Me Out1 day 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,
The World's a StageThe World's a StageThe World's a Stage1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
For Chris Topham
All the world's a stage, we are players
Though who may say what acts we play
Curtain is up and we must perform our parts
Some will do the strangest things
Some perform straight from their hearts
I do what I can as a sincere man
Because I want to care
So, on this note, I just want to say
Today is a special day
Be happy, be healthy, be good
TimeThe ever fleeting and ongoing flowTime1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Silently it passes us by, exerting its influence on all
Steadily and incessantly this wind shall blow
Nothing can stop it, not man, beast, nor wall
Time is an abstract concept, faceless and indifferent
Caring not for the weeping of those who've loved and lost
It wears away stone and earth, humbling what was magnificent
While it measures the period between summer and frost
Everyone has a watch, not knowing when it will expire
Brief or long, time marches at any pace it pleases
Endlessly it extends, for it is a never-ending mire
We admire and fear it, like some of the most hideous diseases
Yes it's true, that nothing lasts forever and we shall fall
But isn't that the point, for time will always outlast all

Rage of the Ascending DrakesUnder silver rays they fought,Rage of the Ascending Drakes1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Upon mighty wings they rose;
Wind blew and fire shot,
The rage of winged foes.
From jaws opened wide,
Spat forth the blazing light,
The inferno from inside,
Making beacons in the night.
Roaring each like a lion
And striking like wretched snakes,
Upon the grey horizon,
Fought two old, ancient drakes.
Wielding myriad ivory claw,
They ripped across the sky
Gripping at the others maw,
Hoping it would die.
Scales rang as they clashed,
Like metal being forged,
Their horns together bashed,
On blood their bellies gorged.
They climbed higher still
Towards the atmosphere,
All the while trying to kill,
Knowing death drew near.
The beasts were matched up evenly
And entered a steep dive;
If one could not have victory,
Then neither would survive.
As they picked up speed
And plunged back down to earth,
The two dragons then decreed
That death was fate from birth.
Mocking this life's end,
And with righteous fury shown,
To the heavens they would ascend,
Their story f
