The woman from ParisI took much pleasure in losing my way in Paris' morbid and dangerous streets,The woman from Paris3 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where sole the high arrogant walls whispered me words I was able to understand,
These stretches of granite trapped me like the grave I've always dreamt of.
The Ladies' ice-cold and distant beauty inebriated me with all the bitterness of temptation;
Under a dirty, driving rain, I gazed at them and suffered
While the parisian mist permeated on my heart its burning frostbites,
And hearses of madness couldn't stop from parading through my mind.
"Veux-tu voir la face cachée de Paris ?" - A slender voice dragged me out of darkness
The Seine flowed, flowed, flowed...And stopped.
Her voice, like a carillon, announced Summer's return,
The breeze blew the rain, the sun revived these leaves dead for centuries,
As if she saved me from a waking nightmare.
"Je t'en prie, ne me regarde pas comme ça..." - An embarrassed smiled was being painted on her magenta cheeks

The Story Of The NightThe Story Of The Night2 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
When dusk goes and gives its place to darkness
Comes to life the One they think is Soulless
No matter how much the passion it’s useless
Forgotten, tossed and hopeless
Whose caress Brings to life the dark creatures of the forest
longs for the embrace of the day, within his heart a thousand dark roses
A thousand punctures in his heart are what you call stars
the remains of his long sustained scars
Sometimes his pain lies heavy on the clouds eyes
And the water of sorrow falls from the skies
Yes,It’s what you call a Nightly Rain
But in fact it’s tears of Night going Insane
The day that light was going to be given to day or night
Night gave all his shine to day so she would be even more beautiful at everyone's sight
but it became his curse and was departed because of his lack of light
Always reaching for the hand of the day in reality and in his mind
Always having this question deep inside
Will he be able to turn the destiny's tide?

The clouds are out
So let's go and find
Some sort of mind
That does not care
But to where we want to go
And golden sunshine
Paint the way for us
Let's see where it takes us
To a faerie field
Full of daytime wheels
We can spin to wherever
Acrid blossom bells
Wave goodbye our cells
So let's not disappoint
And in their bright wave join
As our minds overflow with chance
Our feet are lively
Our smiles are wide
Do not hesitate
But to smell and taste
Like children's memories
Cruel mares can slumber
With all the other
But far aflutter
That picks at our aspirations
Storm fronts behind
Their intent unkind
So let's keep running
And never stop shunning
The past for all its pain
Our purpose so delayed
Become battle calls
To challenge in our midst
The devil's wrist
Nipping at our heels
To try and peel
The veil from our pictured

Hold onto these
Memories I grant you
The gifts of our lives
Lost in the sands of time
I crossed them all
In the blink of an eye
I command light and solar winds
To transport me
The deepest assurance
I speak with my mind
Caves of glass
Shatter before me
The wheels are in motion
Forever they turn
And are carved in the great book of life
There in your room
Alone in the shadows
I smashed down the walls
And set you free
I carry the torch
That trembles the mountains
Seen visions of power
Beyond all belief
You close your eyes
I reach out and touch you
Reflections in pools
The deepest of dreams
Rumors of war
Rage in your heart now
The wheels are in motion
Together we turn them
Forever they're turning away
Come down with fire
I want to love you
want to take you into my heart
We'll cruise the starways
And from the moment that we touch
Our love turns into a crystalline dream
Fly where your dreams go
With open eyes it's the dawn

A blast of air-conditioning embraces me
As I pull open the blue metal door.
I'm early, it seems.
The officers look around
Probably hoping for more people
To show up.
Gradually they trickle in.
Usually one at a time.
It's almost painful to watch.
At last everyone is there.
A grand total of about fifteen.
The officers introduce themselves.
The president of the club.
He's a senior with wire-rimmed glasses.
He seems slightly unconfident speaking.
The vice president.
She's the girl I talked to,
A junior, small in stature.
I remember her,
She once mentored me in middle school.
One of the music coordinators.
He looks laid-back,
The other coordinator.
Striped brown backpack.
He scans the room.
I remember none of their names.
I'll learn them later anyway.
The president explains the club.
I'm not paying much attention.
Papers are handed out.

Lay me down on a bed of roses
Send me away into the night of God's hands
For he will care for me
For he will assure me no more pain
For he will take me to the heavens
Last words will be given before I head off into the clouds
I assure to my loved ones that I am no longer in pain
I am as happy as I can be
My death is only temporarily
Though I am no longer on Earth
I will still in be in your hearts

This; a tale most worthy of lore,
She was but a girl of six winters old.
Alone in a wood full of wolves, shadows and more.
On that night, a child lost; what a yarn to unfold!
Along in the wood; she heard the howling pack
Sing their chorus of attack.
She had more courage than the pack.
With but a stick, she faced the beasts.
She found the will to fight back.
She was not fated to be their feasts.
The wolves circled about as they snarled and stared,
With hungry bellies, eager to pounce and bite.
The girl bravely grabbed a stick to see how she fared,
With no bold knight to save her from this plight,
This mere child stood with might
And readied her stick for the fight.
A wolf lunged, down came the stick!
With a shout, she landed a fierce blow.
The wolf fell and from his pelt flew many ticks.
The pack fled, each a cowering foe.
She saved the day with courage most stoic,
This girl-child stood heroic!
Mister FoxA gentleman, Reynard, they say,Mister Fox2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Is quiet where he walks,
His silent smile will change your day,
That’s why he’s “Mister Fox.”
And should you listen for his pace,
His quiet, sooty socks,
Are soundless, still, or in his race,
The feet of Mister Fox.
Coming to the wedding door,
With timid glee, he knocks.
Who hasn’t invited him before,
That charming Mister Fox?
A cunning lad, always so mellow,
I know to knave who mocks,
The kind and somewhat silly fellow
They know as Mister Fox
Some afternoons with tea and bread,
He sits down at the docks.
Admirable, his coat of red,
And red is Mister Fox.
He has no need for petty things,
Like gold or diamonds or stocks.
More precious are the songs he sings,
The sociable Mister Fox.
After your feet slips off the stirrup,
And you fall on the rocks,
What friend comes by to help you up?
Who else but Mister Fox?
Sometimes his wolfish claws aren’t neat,
Or his grin has teeth of crocs;
But no-one’s words are soft and sw

A sucking vortex, down...
Depending on the weight
Or lightness in it.
Weightlessness equals life
Heaviness it´s polar opposite
And we´re in the midst of it
Caught smack in the middle
Of rock; and a higher place.
I define my love as wine
Added joy and intensity
Colour, taste and smell
All of it fragrant, vibrant
It is well…
…oh it is well with my soul.
Rejoice and give thanks,
For it is well with my soul,
So well, so full, so lively
So loved…so loved.

A foreboding wind blows from the unknown
Veil of mystery confounds
No way out
A sin is exploited
With no key to continue on
A horror movie scene
The haunting begins once again
This never ending nightmare

Broken soul fallen on the street
All have died
Memory I recall
Drives me into insanity
While I try to take control
These dreams become real
Paying for my secrets
Will it end
If I speak the vow?

colors and music bursting through the air
the happiness there for all to see
no one imagines what this place hides
away from sight, there is a child
a small person, so mistreated
that it does not know how to be human anymore
it is tortured daily and only sees darkness
but why, you might ask
well, young citizen, you may find it odd, but
the life full of happiness you had
was all because of this suffering child
for if it is rescued, be cared for
all the city would fall down into chaos
and the colors, and the music, and the joy
would be no more, forever
and for some reason you know it must be true
but in your heart you know
there must be another way
but you just stand there and stare
you do nothing but stare at the child
this dirty, animalistic small person
this suffering, lost, abandoned being
that can no longer be human; never again

what will you choose?
will you live in bliss ignorance

The Name ColdIn the polar Glacier Bay, looking from a window sillThe Name Cold2 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I look upon the frozen waters, peaking at the chilly ice
And the word of “cold,” for this here place—it fits the bill
And a color frozen white to match the name is very nice
So after sailing on my way, and gazing upon every hill
I know that surely such a word as “cold,” is still said twice
And every voice and tongue within my mind, resounding shrill
A word of “cold,” is spoken by me, once and twice and thrice
Though a warming glass of wine, a chilly man still mayest spill
A person with a coat will risk their life and roll the dice
Because there is no kind of heat out here at all that can ever fill
The bones so full of “cold,” or quiet the sounds of bitter vice
With the sound of “cold” upon the wind, and in the salmon’s gill
And the numbing snow still all around the chilly feet of shiv’ring mice
The wind upon the waves, your very soul, it shall surely chill

And yet you say I have a heart of gold
Your Spirit makes me whole

Your presence seeks my soul
Is it a vice

That in your presence, Lord I hide within my shame
I’ll say it twice
I have no pride
Because you overwhelm the beast I keep inside
Forgive me, Lord Jesus
I know you love like no-one can
But I’m ashamed to come before your throne
Redeem me, Lord Jesus

Please lift my spirit when you take me home

It didn’t get wet

I received a letter saying I’d hang,

It slipped through the twine

Mirror, Mirror, Mr. Mirror, as you'll recall:
You informed the Queen that I'm the fairest of all,
Now her jealous gaze is fixed upon me with the bitterest of hate.
She prepared for me a most sumptuous feast,
Smiling so kindly, acting so sweet.
But as soon as I took my bite, she smirked …
As my consciousness fades into an enchanted slumber,
I start to dream of a fairytale that I read as a child.
My time has frozen still.
Please, my prince come wake me up with just one kiss to my sweet, sleepy lips,
And free me from this crystal prison that I've been sleeping in.
Piercing hatred is such an overdramatic feeling, but still-
No matter my prayers, my kind prince has not come for me. Ah~

Remember: I tied your tie and kissed your soft cheek.
Our friendship incurred the wrath of my awful stepmother-- your queen.
Seven Dwarves conveniently appeared for my aid,
Little did I know of the deal they'd made.

Canopy full of sound,

The craggy trunks hold fast.
A million more years to last.
I will not accept these cuffs and binds,
this is mine to decide.
I can hear the soil singing, an awful roar,
furor and terroir.
And that night, ragged bones crawled,
and left the stony isles, the steely trees,
cameras that drilled direct, blue line to the soul-
and out came a man, alive.
