One Added FearI hold a slight fear of falling rocks and cliffs now, and I'll tell you how:One Added Fear17 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Lost in the stomach of the Great Wilderbeast
Jutting rocks pierce the clouds
The heat shimmers over my tan skin
But it doesn't matter.
Cuts adorn my skin from nature's bite
Sharp rocks and plants raise their fangs, poised
For another attack.
I climb up a cliff, trying to reach home.
Boulders fall from loose rock
One hit and I die with it-
Stumbling from the force and falling into oblivion
The rock crashes down a centimeter away from my shoulder,
Tumbling and sliding down the next dip of land
Flying out into the sky-
Then crashing down-
I am a weak person, I realize.
My knees are shaking.
My mind is a blur.
Trusting the very plants and rocks that caused the blood currently on my skin-
I climb up-
As if God Himself pushes

Carefree and innocent
But even then
You were a bully
Now we're all scarred
Spiteful and suspicious
And years later
You're still a bully
We've all grown up,
I see you
for what you are.
Silver and Gold In this time of evergreen,Silver and Gold23 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
All the lonely and the mean
Vanish, without a trace.
Leaving the weak to win this race.
Rings of rich fall to the ground.
Pieces of gold to never be found.
Silver only grows in this garden
And all outside is left barren.
Good seeds of silver only grow
On this side of the rivers flow.
They shimmer, glow, gleam and shine,
Growing tall in jagged lines.
Better than gold, better than any,
They amass now, as the many.
Weak have become strong,
And the supposed right the wrong.
As they fight and stand,
Again, on this barren land.
For what they did they won’t win,
And the gold will pay for their sins.
Silver will live in the crystal garden,
Away from all that’s broken and barren.
And they will triumph on.
All the way into the morning’s sun.
AxisThe Morning comes in Evening’s depthsAxis1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
in the deep, dark grey where dreaming flowers bloom
and eyes awake pierce minds asleep
that all in time be true.
The wheel it spins upon an axis
an axis splitting the world in two
and a Serpent coils around the rapture
keeping the twain from crushing you.
Such is life, this wheel a-turning
a wheel within a spinner still
for the axis courts a many cycles
and none too many the line will draw.
A beginning and an ending
a love and a life
no start and no finish
no war left to fight.
Your life is your own at the call of Morning
when sacred dew might kiss your feet
and the fresh cool air of spirits speak
if only once more to usher in the Daylight.
But again and again the Evening comes
where Morning, Day and Night will blend
when the sultry Grey takes all the reins back
and sacred silence palms the land.

Will never understand
How valuable you truly are.
Only those who are
Will possess the ability
To appreciate your value,
And that is why
You must wait for your love-
Because none are
Special enough yet
To see how special
You will meet someone
Just as valuable as yourself,
And that person
Will be yours
Shall be theirs.
Will read the book
And they will see
The main character.
They may believe
That they see him,
But they overlook him.
They think they know
The story's plot,
But they do not.
They see him,
The kind friend;
But they are not
As wise as he.
They do not see him
For who he is.
Sure, you might read
The words on the page,
And you may turn
From one page to the next;
But what is a book
Without the binding
That holds it together?
It is just words...
How?How?How?1 hour ago in Free Verse More Like This
by Zachariah Grubb
A story of not "If" but "How"
We can do anything
We can do everything
Our will and our way
Our mind and our soul
They all work together
To pull us towards our goal
Now tell me how
How does our will work
How do we know which way to go
How does our mind know
How do we know what a soul is
So tell me how
How to do what I must
Questions like these are endless
No, these questions aren't hopeless
Maybe we're all just hopeful
Hope truly isn't helpful
One day we will know
We know that day will come
Sooner or later
Maybe later or sooner
How do I know
I don't and we all know
We all don't
So tell me how
How it all works
Twisted but not broken just yet
Can we twist it more
How do we know when to stop
Is it going to break
How will we fix it
Maybe lets just stop
How do we stop
It's broken now
How do you know it's broken
These pieces lie
These people lie
These walls lie
These words lie
So tell me how
How to tell the truth
Don't tell me I'm wrong
Because you don't know either
The ExpanseA great white expanse filled with a bright lightThe Expanse3 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
With no walls, ceilings, or floors, it stretches endlessly
A fresh canvas, a blank page, this is the imagination
A world you can create and mold how you so choose
Nothing can limit you while you are in the confines of your mind
While we wonder what could lay at the source of this great gift
Picture an antique door in the great white expanse
No one knows what's behind it, we can only dream and imagine
The door to our subconscious has never been opened and explored
It's a great mystery that irks all civilized and educated minds
What is behind that door? Is there dark, or is there light?
What could we learn about ourselves in this unknown realm?
Perhaps a few have seen what lies on the other side
Those with fragmented minds and unearthly thoughts
Seeing things not meant to be seen, and slipped into insanity
There are many things that we shall never fully understand
Yet we are always searching, searching for answers we shouldn't be
We all ha

Giving meaning to I and myself
Shifting the lighting of reality between opaque and translucent
Can you see through the screen?
I indulge regularly upon the trove of delights
Indulgences that blur and refresh
Banish and re-root themselves to the apex of my being
Whose hands planted these seeds?
I am alone in this singularity
Reaching out for a voice nonexistent
Into the chasms of Erebus
Can you hear my cries?
BlackoutBlackout,Blackout3 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Blood in your eye,
In terror you wonder,
Is today the day you die?
Sometimes in rage,
I’ll let it take my place,
Just to enjoy the expressions,
I see on every face.
Push it back down,
Don’t let it get out,
Push it back down,
And face the Blackout.
I see these lives,
And just take and take and take,
Fuck it are you listening?
All their happiness is fake!
I must know what they know,
I must know why they never cry,
Then I will take it from them,
And never tell them why.
So come down,
I’ll greet you nicely,
Later on you’ll wonder,
Why you feel so icy.
Perhaps you couldn’t handle it,
That’s the answer, no doubt,
You couldn’t stand up to it,
Couldn’t face the Blackout.
Full blasted, Techno-color.In a world full of black and white.Full blasted, Techno-color.8 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where not a soul could be bothered within their mundane ways.
There was a single girl, shining in full blasted, techno-color.
In this world of dark hues of haunting shades.
Vacant entity's, refuse to look up from scurrying feet.
Day in and out, they mooed like cattle.
But not the vibrant Crayola girl.
For all she had to do was look up,
and she could see her rainbow arching in the clouds.
While everyone else, passed her by.

Is like a huge painting
With many pieces
And each person
Is a wooden shape
With curves that fit
Along the grooves of another
But some people
Seem too different
Unable to lock
Their jagged edges
With the smooth planes
Like an extra piece
In a bright puzzle
With no room left
For a lonely gear
And, as the clock turns
And sides are sanded
Time reveals that the little square piece
Is a picture all its own

CounterweightsOften have I heard it said,Counterweights14 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
that we each must do our part,
to make the world a better place,
and often have I thought,
is that even possible?
If all the world can be defined,
as simple resources,
never created or destroyed,
Each action you make,
uses up just as much as you create,
and vice versa.
Even happiness is just a resource,
a chemical in the brain,
so to make more happiness,
would it not require something,
of equal value, exchanged?
Is not something lost,
whenever we gain?
How can the world ever truly be better,
when everything we do,
has its counterweights,
an equal trade-off,
as much evil for every bit of good?
But the veil of thought is shattered,
by a simple thank you uttered,
for some simple task,
and I smile.
For I know that as long as we keep trying,
the world will be better,
for it matters not what little we have,
but instead that what we have,
is used to the best of its ability.

a pulsação breve

por isso foi tão difícil
tudo o que tocaste respira
dentro do meu corpo
na pele que me veste
e despiste por dentro

e eu já não me reconheço assim
eu sou uma sucessão de rostos
e nenhum deles é mais o rosto
que as tuas mãos me deram
porque eu ainda estendo
o meu olhar sobre a mesa
como uma paisagem
é tão tarde nos relógios da casa
e no entanto
é como se crescessem nas tuas mãos
o pão e os frutos latejando
como um coração segurando
uma vida maior
como se deles escoasse
a frágil pulsação
em todos os dias que me faltam
eu vou estar correndo
em todas as direcções
que não a tua
e todo esse espaço
não será suficiente
