Crying at my smile
Crying at my smile
Im not the center of the universe,
Yet mother nature does weep for me,
Shares my agony an that
Of other injured souls
Finding themselves in that tangle of emotions.
She picks me up, dries the tears
She placed on my cheek only a moment before.
Reflects my imagine in the puddles
And adds a bit of shine
She smiles to me, melts my heart,
Hugs me with her warmth,
Keeping me from falling apart
From the wet and cold that seeped to my bones.
On merry days I see her shine,
Smiling my way
Though not always;
Sometimes she cries at my smile.
She is weeping for another,
Like me not the center of existence,
Someone who is hurt, and in need of her attention.
Just in case you doIll have to compromise,Just in case you do6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I prefer cute,
But sure, attractive.
It felt so good,
But a compromise is hardly heartfelt;
Cute fairly neutral.
But for a first,
To be open,
It feels more special,
Than it can ever be.
Curiosity gets flattering,
Captures the heart,
At the price of respect.
Yet other men walk the earth,
And once you shall realize
You mean more to some
Sometimes you are seen as more
He looked at me,
He didnt call me cute,
He never uttered that word.
Instead he said youre beautiful
To me made all the difference
Sometimes one will say,
I will pretend to be blind,
for eternity if I must
because you chose this.
of course, if thats ur wish
Ill make it possibile.
you shouldnt go alone,
it might be dangerous.
And you know he will be there
If you need him.

Some poeple may conquer it with ease.

And when you finally reach the top of that mountain
The view from up there is breathtaking.
FrozenHe stood completely still as he watched me walking slowly toward him. His eyes wide with fear and fascination, like a small bird watching a snake glide towards it. Not daring to move. I could see that he had stopped fighting with himself and had made his decision to stay. Not that his decision mattered. His body had made the decision at the start of the night.Frozen7 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
His eyes widened as I drew closer and still he had not moved an inch. I could see the emotions playing across his face, just like the rest of them, and knew exactly what he was thinking. His unconscious mind knew there was something dangerous about me, something to be feared, but his conscious mind, his logical mind, refused to believe that anything or anyone as beautiful as me could be dangerous. Once again I felt pity for the human race, felt sorrow for the simple fact that they could not protect themselves from predators of the mind and heart. Ancient predators that could and would play them like puppets.

Happy Mothers DayI lay in bed listening to the sounds of the raindrops hitting the window pane. I rolled over and checked the time on my bedside table. It read 8:15. It was safe to get up. I climbed out of bed and padded softly across the room to the bathroom. After splashing my face with cold water I decided to go downstairs and start on breakfast. But not mine. Definitely not mine. My stomach rumbled with the thought of breakfast and I realised I hadnt eaten last night. But there was no time for that now. I would just have to be careful.Happy Mothers Day7 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

You sit back,
Hold it for a moment,
And slowly let it escape
A wonderful way to corrupt your lungs.
It is your right to destroy them,
But a privilege to get someone elses
When yours give up on you_
When I ask you to quit smoking,
Im your conscience,
at least I have a beautiful one you say
Only for part of the day

Is love?Is love worth the pain that follows?Is love?5 years ago in Open More Like This
If hurt came first
I could endure,
In the knowledge of seeing better days.
Knowing love would heal my pain.
But love is always what comes first
Smiles, laughter and trust
Agony and hurt what ends it all
Get left with my tears, a broken heart.
Yes, its worth going through pain to get love
But is love worth the pain that follows?
Are the good young moments good enough?
Can a man be worth my sorrows?
Abandoning me without a thing
Having taken all I offered,
Leaving me to soothe my own pain
To try and fix the mess he created.
Now I have the knowledge
Can I ever trust a man
To be different than they say?
Or is it really true
That they are all just the same?
Will every man seeing me really think
If she still breathes its ok?
Can I trust a man not to believe
I can simply throw her away
And if he does exist
Will I dare to trust?
Will I ignore my past?
Will I listen long enough?
Believe the words he says
LifeLife's a dream.Life7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It all goes by so quickly
And yet moments last forever...
Every day of my life is filled with wonder
And each minute is one to cherish.
Yet not every moment is a joyful one;
Several hours are spent in misery and depression...
But then again, even more hours are spent in joy.
Why is every moment so painful, yet so beautiful?
Why can't those moments I love last longer,
And Why do the horrible times have to stretch on?
If life's all a lie,
And if dreams never come true...
Am I just a figment of my own imagination?
Has my life been but a dream?
And do I even exist outside of my dream at all?
Life is formed in blood,
And life is sealed in fate...
And yet I laugh at the power of the stars,
And shun the idea of destiny,
Living every second to its fullest.

What makes you the one person that matters?
What makes your smile the most precious one?
Your words worth a fortune?
Your existence the thing keeping me awake at night?
I simply adore you,
Heart, spirit, and soul.
I miss you though we never met,
I miss you because you are gone.
Please come back and kiss me,
Give me my promised hug.
Bless me with all your laughs and smiles,
And never, I ask you, never,
Give me back my heart.
Keep it imprisoned in your possession
And allow me to keep yours to beat for me.
My darling I love you,
Do fix me with you gaze...
And before all else remember that
"No matter how many miles split us apart,
You will always be a piece of my heart."

I have a dream,
It fills my heart,
Nothing is more important.
It takes all my thoughts,
And urges me to keep going.
I have a dream,
Yet my dream
Is far away from perfect,
So gives many a preoccupation,
A preoccupation to destroy it.
My heart is not as strong as ten,
Shattered like glass is my dream,
Scattered into the void within me,
And I'm left to search.
It's impossible to find back all the pieces,
Now every part grows its own roots,
One big dream, no various small ones
All demanding me to choose.
I feel a wish, a new desire,
Calling me from deep within,
It is a new dream:
To find my dream.

Despite your ignorance,
I love you,
With those moments
Only I still hold dear.

Beautiful Stranger.She's such a beautiful stranger and nothing like the rest.Beautiful Stranger.6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Her eyes have their own voice, putting my sanity to the test.
Her walk is like poetry, her hair like a lions mane.
More attracted than ever, she makes my mind go blank.
I've never been at a lost for words until i saw her.
So I was sure we'd be together when that first glance occurred.
I see her in my dreams,
But I'm haunted by many things.
When angels cry for my sorrow,
I will then believe in a better tomorrow.
There's loose ends in this love triangle,
high winds from the wings of this symmetrical angel.
Fire from the eyes of my adversaries, tryna bother me.
and liquor in the bellies of the members of this comradery.
Such a beautiful stranger,
Her eyes screaming danger.

Consuming my compliments as she smiles and blush.
She drove me to love her and I bought her a ring.
I wanted to show her that this was more than a fling.
He flashed me a smile, suiting his arrogant looks,
and at all the right moments, right words, right expressions.
But the ease at which he gave me that ring,
made me feel fooled by his game, me: an ignorant little thing?
This was more than a fling, she was something different.
She made my heart sing when our lips synced in position.
My love would part the sea's and bare the weight of the world.
For her love for me exceeded the way she made my toes curl.
As a mirror my reflection was her affection and commitment.
I presented this ring to what my life has been missin.
Though accepting to the call of my heart,
My mind couldn't help but wonder,
would he have cared,
If I were another.
If i were of his kind.
If I were with child.
What if? what if?
My mind was going wild.

disaster oft a near miss,

He's the one for me, however this is more than I ever bargained for. At the cost of not being alone, I am granted a tumultuous ride with breaks of heavenly sweetness. I see greatness in him, however it is often buried in an even greater sadness. He won't open that up to me. Is he worried that it'll hurt me, or is he just ashamed?
Am I selfish?
Only a hero if need be,
he's tied down to be free,
blinding his sight to see,

Never planning a next,

echoed remorse, post-sex,
as keen as Oedipus Rex.

so as she falls from up high, cold seeks to overcome,
her dress trailing with outstretched arms to the sky.
The night's claws are far from soft as they grasp,
chilling in their uncaring embrace, evoking shivers,
it pushes the mind away to another age and place,
long dormant seeds of thought sprouting into dream.
Time stands still in this otherworld of memory
and she dwells outside, staring in, separated,
the scene like a comforting bosom without a babe,
such a waste it seems, she leans against the unseen.
Empty shells of light, she watches these loved ones,
for they are long gone from this world, departed,
wisps of emotion seeking to tug at her soul, desperate,
all goes black as her distant body collapses, broken.
Sleep is forced upon the beaten and bloody form,
yet her heart beats strongly, having a reason to,
even as she forgets all but her name, becoming reborn,

Standing eye to eye, tears in mine, fire in yours.
I beg you one last time to stay, you shake your head, and turn to go.
But you stop.
Your loose hands, turn to tight fist, and you start to shake.
I just stare, not knowing what to do or say.
Finally, I walk around you, and stare into your big blue eyes.
We stand in dead silence, while minutes turn to hours.
I finally ask, just spare me, some last words.
You look up, and say, I Love You.
Then loosen, and walk away, while I stand, shocked.
But I smile.
Knowing that its better to have been loved and been left, then not being loved at all.
