They reach up long arms to the sky,
spread out their green fingers selfishly,
and there they soak up that life-giving sun.
But you, eyes filled with trust and wonder,
are left small and alone in the shadows of the day.
The trees betray you.

A snatch of twisted-rope words
floating across my forehead,
twisting around my fingers,
until suddenly it’s gone- dead.
A snatch of twisted-rope words,
what a fleeting image,
you’d think I didn’t think it,
shape it, craft it, twist it into
a snatch of twisted-rope words,
and idea that’s just beginning,
a little thought i’m thinking,
trying to pull and spin into more than
a snatch of twisted-rope words
maybe i can catch it in my fingers
maybe i can weave it into something,
maybe it can be more than just
a snatch of twisted-rope words
floating across my forehead,
twisting around my fingers,
and maybe it won’t be gone- dead.

Intermittent rain that pelts the canvas,
All the air charged and static,
And hearts cracked with that thunder.
For I would do what I never did,
And tales that spin within my head
Scream soundlessly to bear fruit,
To take root in this living world.
In the depths of May,
Youth trickles into the waiting soil.
INNOCENCE IS STRENGTH acrostic riddle poemIntimate, silent if neededINNOCENCE IS STRENGTH acrostic riddle poem1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
Nice to others
Nonintimidating, even if they try
Overprotective of what is theirs
Candy-like - full of sugar
Everlasting are their hearts
Never give up - strong are their hearts
Clear-minded - able to see all
Embers - their souls burn as bright as when they're lit
Intuitive - they always understand
Scarred and broken - they have something to hide
Shock - that's what you feel when you find out what's locked inside
Tightness - that's the feeling that floods their hearts
Rash is what they want to be, although they know they cannot
Ecological as they love the world around them with glee
Nonsensical as sometimes their innocence is that to you or me
Generous as they help those around them, you see.
Teacher's pet is what they all assume they'll be
Hidden is the truth's padlock and key.
Tribute to Vergil from Devil may cryTribute to Vergil from Devil may cry21 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
"Might controls everything, and without strength, you cannot protect anything."
Vergil is the representation of those who accept their dark side without asking: "Why me?".
He make his nature the most powerful weapon in his hands and nothing will distract him from his goal.
Vergil is the ambition personified, the voice of the outcasts, the one that guide the revolution, the man who comes to power after many sufferings.
He is the vengeance which acts in silence,
in the darkness he moves and before you know it
he gives you death with Yamato,
which is the materialization of your pains.
This is Vergil.
10. Birth MarkedGrandpa used to tell stories10. Birth Marked35 minutes ago in Free Verse More Like This
about the night I was born,
said a lost sparrow with cockeyed feathers
hopped across my right shoulder
and left its mark.
Shifting the sheaf of hair
mom refused to cut short
and craning my neck,
I could just see the cluster
of sharp-edged W's etched like tattoos
across the scalloped scoop of my bones.
In summer heat waves,
I learned to weave my dark tangles into braids
and let the claw strokes breathe,
the thin straps of feather-print shirts
pushed out of the way.
On those days,
Grandpa claimed I could lift my arms, wing-like,
and fly myself into something new.
though the sun is high
and summer nears again,
Grandpa is gone
and I am weighted by dark moods
and black mascara.
Standing at his graveside,
I tell him stories about the parts of him I miss
and the parts of me I hate
but cannot change;
the parts I was born into.
A phantom breeze clutches
the fresh bob of my wayward hair
and for a moment,
I can feel his work-calloused fingers
brushing the birth
Reality BenderCatch the smell of morning city:Reality Bender21 minutes ago in Free Verse More Like This
sunburned asphalt, cigarettes,
misty windows like empty
eyes to empty minds. Let's
seize the stony sky,
peaceful bubbles of silence to cry
in flowing through the streets,
the thin line where earth meets
the freedom up above... Call
hope out from the wall
and make all shine like stars
in a tiger's mouth, make the wars
fade into the deep nowhere's soul!
Transform the yellow tram
into a yellow submarine
with fuming beams of water
splashing out in
the cracks of the concrete road
where the fourth horseman rode
(you know, which one: the pale
apocalypse-bringer from the vale)...
It's just like pick-up lines told
to Mary by the God:
so evident absurdity,
the dark clarity
of losing your mind
just to stay sane in this kind
of brave new crazy world.
Shhh, don't say a word!
Foot of Plutoa metropolis of oneFoot of Pluto1 hour ago in Free Verse More Like This
concealed beyond the eclipse of a passing moon
the locusts cast hollow and wraithy shadows
veiled safely in the darkness of night
a fallen city
fixed on the wing of a fallen crow
reflecting on the feathers and sheen of a different day
the air of saturn resonates in the ozone of the clearing dawn
the days worth will be measured in the annuls of the night
and the night is filled with mistrust
darkened fields tattooed on the foot of pluto
he steals what he cannot afford
plucking feathers to fit in his bedliner.

Look at you! Little person, so wretched in your agony, so wretched in your calm.
Look at you! Little person, and they all looked, like I told them too. They saw you, little person, and they knew you were so small, so wretched, so weak, so pathetic.
Look at me? One who mocks you, who belittles you, little person?
Look at me? Who would want to? I am as unimportant as you!
Look at me? And yet still they look, from one to the other, me to you, you and I...
Look at them. They do as we tell them.
Look at them. They cannot think.
Look at them. You are little, but they are nothing.
Look around, little person. Look around, because you are small, because you are wretched, and weak, and pathetic, because everyone else is too. Everyone else is little, like you, little person.

I call it Instinct.
Regardless of what we say,
It's always right,
It's every man, woman, and child's personal,
Link to the Very force that makes us live,
So it knows,
Trust your Instinct,
allow it to prepare you for the worst,
And get you excited for the best.
Take it from someone who knows,
don't Fight your instinct,
Don't say " no, that won't happen"
because that speeds it along,
It only causes you to hit it harder.
And don't doubt your instinct,
Don't say " That'd be too good to happen "
You'll still be wrong, and it'll still happen,
Maybe without pain,
but it'll happen.
Known as Gut feeling,
or maybe conscience,
It's Everyone's 6th sense,
Everyone's crystal Ball,
even if we ignore it,
it's there, and it doesn't lie.

Fleeting visions fade through time.
Get out, get away, this is not okay,
I am not supposed to feel this way.
Friends not lovers, this what it has to be.
STOP! It hurts, I cannot give what you want from me.
I will hide these feelings away for none to see,
Even if it makes sense it cannot be reality.
Just because it needs to be said
Does not mean that it needs to be read.
Beating, no breaking quit pumping
If I could, by now, I would have done something.
Confusion takes over and stifles with my heart,
I need to find the strength to play the part.
Feelings of rapture, feelings of trust
Cannot be confused with feelings of lust.
For someone so close, it is bound to happen
Someday this will turn into attraction.
But not today, you cannot win
I will not let myself give in.
For within her I have discovered a new world,
Something so amazing it is seen as absurd.
Joy is found within her embrace,
Eyes meet and my heart begins to race.
I know what this is, I k

No place for Life where Love has trod:
she is Death's little sister.
Her right hand bears a soothing touch,
and her left deals a blister.
She frolics in the memosphere,
in a bed of meme-flowers:
"creation and destruction
are the same thing", she glowers.
Fountains of Joy
Some call their passions "demons",
but I couldn't care less -
for I have seen their beauty
beyond their restlessness.
When dams of skin and gristle
under their pressure break,
Goddess laughs and bathes in
the waving warm blood-lake.
I nursed a killer - she fit in the palm of my hand -
tiny claws, but sharp enough to mark my skin.
Eyes still closed, a trembling small sliver of life -
you could never have guessed the monster within.
One Of Many
Prick my butt with a pin and I'll fly
straight through the apple of your eye -
a shiny insect and a priest of goodbye -
try to catch me - know the spoon's a lie!

can every day be found
When I meet my good old friend
inside his dark underground
My unholy smile defiles-
an antique movie reel
That might shatter with one touch
just like me, of course
And at a closer look
it can be so easily noticed in these tumescent eyes
The will to shed tears
for the unfortunate dreamers of our wicked life-
Their own bearer, as always,
the very first in line.
No doubt about it
who else was to win that prize?
