Hazel encompass eyes and glasses hiding them
Taking off his shoes, bending is legs
You did this out of comfort
A protecting suit of antics
Games were your thing to keep things comfortable
To hide the anxiety
You hide a lot
Being mean with jokes and a sharp tongue
but you cover a lot
I fear you are putting your eggs in one basket
but that is not my issue
I care about you
A genuine longing to be kind to you
A promise to never disrespect you
When you say no I back off and sit far away
I don't know the horrors you have seen but I would liked to have known
I would have listened to you from start to finish
I can't torture myself anymore, not like I used to
You may think I'm dumb for caring
I don't think it's dumb
I think I'm brave
Everyone has a dark and a light
Good can not exist without evil
and so on
I wanted to see all of you
As I see everyone
I thought you were worth it
To write a poem about
And look, at that.
I did after a
Life: A Twisted Thing To RhymeLifeLife: A Twisted Thing To Rhyme3 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
A twisted thing
That can be both good and evil
All at the same time
There seems to be no line
It's hard to just be fine
When the good is so hard to find
And goes so fast
While the evil seems to linger
Playing on our thoughts
And wrapping itself around our hearts
Mastering our emotions
It sucks the hope from us
Is all around us
But not so easy to master
Is a riddled rhyme
Full of good and evil
Mostly the bad prevails
The good is mostly sublime
Not easy to live
A twisted thing to rhyme
Angels Don't Live LongYou're somewhere across the seaAngels Don't Live Long5 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
out of my reach,
it feels like we're almost there
but also just as far away.
The world is so vast
and is an estrange stranger
that I could never encounter
in full figure.
I have sung a lot of love songs
mostly about the heart breaking
and rib cage cracking,
yet I am always drawn to it
even in my most indifferent hours,
I sing about incompleteness only found in lovers...
You're somewhere across the sea and over the hilltops,
far from the coast of cold waves that scramble my frequency.
Perhaps, you are not here,
and so the world feels estrange to me now.

Within the darkest ocean
Where the light ceases
Where the light breaks on the mountain peaks in all awe
In our world of unlimited possibilities
Where life thrives
In the most uncertain places,
From the abyss
To the warming light of the sun
Great things spring
Through the void
Comes wondrous flourish of life
Creating a garden of sustenance
AnchorIn the Evening I might ache for youAnchor13 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
so that come morning I may bloom
as new horizons open wide
broken doors are tightly shut
yet when all is said and done
and nothing’s changed but much
I will be where I always was
moving ever onward
without a moment to pause
though still in the Evening
when my soul slows a bit
I think of you
until the morning comes and my anchor lifts.

I used to cry.
I used to just be empathic.
But now I am just sociopathic...
I've lost the ability to love.
I've lost the will to care.
I've lost my sense of humanity.
I've lost the sense of reality...'
I move from day to day, wasting time away.
I allow the world to burn at my feet.
I watch the stars fall from the sky.
I watch as people around me begin to die...
I fear no ending.
I approach without remorse.
I press the day between my fingers.
I release yet the pain still lingers...
I removed my soul.
I placed it far from sight.
I took out my heart.
I was just tired of it falling apart...
I gave up on dreams.
I looked past my fate.
I covered up my sorrow.
I have nothing left to borrow...
I left the world behind me.
I left my will to the wind.
I left my love locked away.
I left it all, because none would stay...
But I still carry on with life.
I still stare the world down and keep moving.
I still make progress every single day.
I have an iron will, so what
My DungeonI am ashamed of my sinsMy Dungeon19 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
I couldn’t be the one for you.
The person inside was trapped by hurt and anger
And the angel that is you was tortured.
The worst was you never let go.
You held on tight with bloody hands
Promising a tomorrow that doesn’t exist
Because there was never a now.
I'd built a dungeon of lies and deceit.
My inner demons ran wild and free
Tearing apart the lover inside me
The sweet girl who hid in dark corners for protection.
The monster inside me ruined the purity that was you.
The anger inside of me murdered the love inside of you
And fighting your final breaths of oxygen
You said the three words you always had.
She broke free, the darling inside me.
When all was forgiven
And the lies were all broken.
But, alas, it was too late.

Find me something that I deserve to hold.
Ask the Gypsy Prince of England, profit of no home, General of the Rainbow Revolution.
Or the divine Goddess of joy, best friend of time, holder of more than nothing.
They will tell you what I don't think I deserve.
Forgive me for speaking bluntly, but can't you just take my word that I am nothing.

Coldest WeekIt was the coldest week,Coldest Week1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
where boiling water became snow
and anything uncovered would freeze in the air.
On one cold night
she found the courage to expose her heart
and in the freezing air her heart found warmth.
The night grew warm
And the next day warmer
And the weeks after turned from Winter to Spring.
I stood watching the exposure-
for the first time heart in hand-
feeling the the fleeing cold settle there.
Keeping PromisesI've always been one who tries to keep his promises.Keeping Promises1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
But were they ever worth a thing?
It's easy to seem trustworthy when you never promise anything
that is ever anything at all.
Unraveled3 years later, Green Eyes, and here we are.Unraveled1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
Did either of us see it coming?
I grew up with you, I grew old with you.
Would anyone even recognize who I have become?
And now, though things have unraveled, here I am
A mobius- spins of blue, purple and cyan.
It looked so tight, I was too scared to keep going
only to tear it apart again.
Despite how things ended, I didn't want to strangle you.
A face- shades of blue, purple, and I can
never forgive myself.
So I constructed a clever plan- I strung it up,
pulled out needles
stretched and shook it.
Never expected to see it loosen up like it did,
it seems everything was all right all along.
I put the needles back, stitch after stitch.
Thirty minutes, I think, were worth the peace of mind.
