What Is The Opposite Of ''Victim''?If you looked at me twice, would I still look the same?What Is The Opposite Of ''Victim''?4 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
If I cut out the shadows that cloud in your eyes?
Or would typecasting time screw me over again?
I want to be human, I want to be real;
Could you ever see flesh and not circuits and steel?
Or is it in me that this prejudice lies?
I'm not even a joke, because no-one could care,
So it's not even funny, to make me ashamed.
You can't chase for a girl if the girl isn't there.
I'm a word in your ear and a mark on the page,
A shell of a smile in a cheat-sheet cage,
But no-one will look for the ghost in the frame.
In your eyes, I've no value unless I'm a whore,
And yet even that accolade you will deny.
And why should I ever want anything more?
If nobody wants me, then surely I'm safe:
No heartbeat, no feelings, no body, no face;
And I'll never be seen, so I don't need to hide.
So I'm stuck in the shadow of being myself,
And the answers you see over spirit and bone,
Because real girls dress up and get off of the shelf.
And how could I thin
Dandelions and DaisiesDandelions and DaisiesDandelions and Daisies5 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
How unfamiliar is the common soul
With the subject of botany?
When my eagle eye sees for miles around
But it sees only weeds?
Common souls grow up everywhere,
And every which way,
Under the sun
But they are merely dandelions,
Each and every one
Among the cluster you may find
A daisy or two somewhere
Pretty and fresh as the field around her,
But she hardly cares
She stands among the dandelions
As though they are more than weeds
How will the deluded mind understand its needs?
I fly like a leaf in the breeze
I don't have to heed
I kept my pace with the human race
And I know what I need
I need a long separation
Because I'm not their breed
A Rest Well-DeservedA Rest Well-DeservedA Rest Well-Deserved3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Ever at my side
Through whatever may come
In darkness and in light
From dawn until day is done
To honor and defend
With full heart and shining sword
We will love until the end
Our two hearts are one
But now we both grow weary
Of common men's careless deeds
They seldom think so clearly
So, finally, the thing we need
Is a long rest away from this crowd
And we will need it soon
For crying out loud
Planet of the VampsIn a world ruled by vampiresPlanet of the Vamps6 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
All subjects are vessels
For blood, sweat, and tears
And they all walk in line
Content with their fears
Numb in the punctured
Space below their ear
The vampires dress
So fine each night
Proper dining attire
Make sure to stay articulate
To keep them saying, "Sire"
It's not so bad, it's common place
It's only blood, is that so dire?
Besides, that's just the way things are
And who really has the time
To give, and do their part
We're simply too fatigued
To begin to think to start
To carve and shape the wood
And drive it through their hearts
