Water and sunlight at last
I've walked on the path of hell, drenched in glass
The moons' rays and the planets' glow
The calming breeze, the rivers flow
The animals that sing atop mountains so high
The starlit stars in the evening sky
The sound of gentle rain drops pounding on earth
The hollow crys, the trees whisper "re-birth"
The rustling leaves and their sway
The new bulbs, so fresh, newly grown
All of this, I do own
Many of lifes forgotten finds
But i for one, shall keep this in mind
Most greatest thing of all
Look around you and open your eyes
And in front of you, all of this lies..

With your shining loving eyes
And your heart worn on your sleeve
You put your whole trust
Into one aching moment,
All for it to come crashing down
Upon your head.
Tears tearing through
As you miscarriage dreams
And fall into a monochrome melancholy world.
But don't forget me
When you're buried deep in sorrow.
Don't forget us.
Because everybody breaks,
And everybody falls,
And there's not always someone to catch us.
We're all porcelain.
The NightPoor times of how I long for deathThe Night12 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To feel the grim reapers icy cold breath
To take a knife and cut a vain
And close the door of what I do call sane
To see the mark upon thy wrist
Taunts me as I eagerly rest
Sitting there with a razor against my cold skin
Pondering, waiting, wondering what I should do
The temptation of making myself bleed, becomes so overwhelming
That I do cry in agony
To be nevermore, nothing but a steep six foot whole in the ground
The evil, the dark, takes over my soul
Like how money corrupts peoples mind into greed
The thought, the madness of what I do bare
Takes over my body forever, for centuries to share
So as I lie in the dark with my lights shut off and nothing but the still of the night
I, with a knife along side me, cry in utter pain
As I listen to the calm rain grow feirce against my frosted window
Making my choice, my freedom mistake
Weather to live or to die
I drop the cold steel
Cry myself to sleep
To a dream land that keeps me safe
A place where

Finally we've made it through
So many smiles and laughs
So many friendships that are true
Since our very first classroom
To writing our A B C's
We are like beautiful flowers
We have watched eachother bloom
We have made our time here,
feel so incredibly right.
It seems as if we've known,
eachother our whole lives
Taking every step together
Watching the time go by
It's hard to leave eachother I know,
But it's time to say goodbye
I know my heart will surely break
But all we can do,
is keep our chins up, and our heads held high.
Congradulations class of 2004, we have made it through the ride.
Please never forget all of our times we shared
And all the times spent together, keep them in your mind and heart
Keep them there forever
This is our goodbye.

More oft' than not we hear the stories
about the lives adorned with gold
whether real or artificial - the story is still told
The image on the outside, is one perceived by lies
but behind the doors of happyness, a bitter truth does lie...
To societys viewing it appears to be right-
the secret things said at night
never spoken to others but often reheard
mental handicaps placed on truth's whisper is burnt
The more pressure is placed on the more it occurs
till boiling points shatter and self image blurred
for if viewed as a lesser, the truth it must be
an altered perspective created to see
Through headaches and problems
maturing and laughter, i headed on unaware of another
for lost in the chaos and havok of life
you fueled all my anger, attacke

This demon's taken control of me
I curse myself and my incapability
I wish, I hope, to go back to the day
When I didn't care about it, either way
Why are my thoughts so out of place?
Mayhap it's someone else with my face
Punish me, now, for I spit and I curse
It feels so bad, and I want it to be worse
I look for a way out of all this
Shadows hide me, my courage I miss
I see it there, my eyes it will haunt
I look for the moment when I can taunt
It looks away for a moment or three
I wait for too long, cannot get free
It holds me
It molds me
It makes me
It takes me
Possession is nine-tenths, don't you see?
Depression is deep and wont let me be
Regression perhaps is the way, but
Dispassion makes all those doors shut
Displacement causes me to sit and stare
Abasement is the punishment that I share
Chastisement is something I have heard

I will rip you apart
I'll pull out all your pain
I'll cut out your heart
And I'll do it again
'cause I love to watch you
Hurt and cry
Can I kill you eight times
Before you finally die?
'Cause you remind me
Of a worm
While you squirm
Not so beautiful
Like a butterfly
Who when killed once
Will fall and die
But you stay here
Through all the pain
You were happy
Before I came
I will rip you apart from the inside out
I will take all of your pride
I will lie to you to get your trust
And I'll slowly eat you alive
I'll drive you past insane
I'll make you go mad
And I'll cut your weak wrists
like you should have
I'll hit that vein
with this knife
I'll kill your brain
And I'll end your life
I'll rip you apart
I'll pull out all your pain

I'm sorry I wasn't there for you when it was your 5th Birthday. I wasn't able to see the happiness striking across your face, the anticipation running through your veins at the point of opening your presents. The blissful joy of all your friends and family around you as they sang happy birthday, that day was a memory I never had the chance to remember.
I'm sorry I wasn't there for you when you had your first day at school. It was like a new world for you filled with friendship, independence and above all, fun. I'll always regret not being there to pick you up after school and having you run into my arms at a thousand miles per hour, as though you hadn't seen me in years. Those days when you came home and started humming a harmonious song that you learnt, it was a tune I'd never hear.
I'm sorry I wasn't there for you when you were eight years old and just learnt to ride your first bike. The breeze going through your hair as yo
Three Words Of SorrowI will tradgically wipe away my tears as I tell you my painThree Words Of Sorrow11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I will stab your heart with anger
And show you the blood from my arm
I will whisper to you from beneath the grave
And sing sweet sorrow songs while I swing on a vine of thorns
I will carve our names into a stone,
In hope that one day you will see.
I will plant a bush of roses outside your bedroom window
And I will sit on the corner of the moon,
And blow a shooting star your way
I will spike an arrow through my heart
So you can watch me bleed to death
And in my final words of grief
I will mutter the three words of pain
And in my dieing embers,
I will grasp your hand and never let go
Until my strength gives away
And I hope you die in agony knowing we will never be together
My three words of sorrow...
I love you...

Am I that invisibility?
Or do you hate me, maybe?
In that case,
What have I done to you?
Why cant you tell me? Because I am sick and tired of not knowing the truth.
You never talk to me, but if you do youre cold,
But not to the others that stands and talks with us.
At them youre smiling and laughing,
But not at me, why?
What have I done wrong?
Am I so ugly you cant look at me?
Am I so stupid that you cant talk with me?
Why do you hate me?
When we do school works together with someone else,
You dont ask what I like about what you and the other/s are doing.
Dont I have any rights to tell what I think?
Are you afraid that I will say wrong things,
That I will make you feel ashamed?
If it is so,
Why dont tell me straight away instead of hiding it?
Why do you hate me?
You give me strange gazes,
Do I look strange?
Am I ugly?
Do I wear the wrong clothes?
Why cant I wear the clothes I want to wear?

Still noon in the paddy fields
in Kerala, we sank a well
to stem the flow of desert,
but came up smelling of dust.
Watched rice plants wither as the slow sun
silenced resolve in angry glare,
and warm dry gusts scattered
hope to the four corners.
In Palakkad, an empty street, sold
to ten million-dollar-a-day death,
men nurse wounds and children.
The women have gone to find water-
when the supply runs altogether dry,
we may find out how to swallow
the dust. Or our pride. Lesson taught,
we shall learn to drink coke.
Still noon in the baking heat
within the walled compound, we
stand around on wounded feet
spreading slurry on the ground.
So here, at least, is water
(to dampen a capital purse)
So here we earn our living -
a litre a day (could be worse).
Outside, the world is barren,
the earth is cracked and bare.
As boreholes tap our reservoirs
at last we've learnt to share.
So desert soil is progress,
and bitter stench is joy.
Infected feet dance to the beat

Four SeasonsWhen I first met you, you were like the relief one gets from a fresh splash of the April rain.Four Seasons11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Effervescent in your attitude, anomalous in everything else….
You were different, you were new, and you made me feel…absolutely rejuvenated and…..absolutely beautiful.
When I realized that I was in love with you, you were like the July sun.
Bright and looming, the first thing my eyes went to in the sky.
Overwhelming, you were once in a while, consuming my time and whatever limited free space resided in my mind.
Sometimes I felt you slowed me down, tired me with your tenacious complexity …but I knew, without you, I wouldn't be able to survive.
And then, there were those summer rains….those monsoons of magnificence…those hazy pink-grey skies, those shows of layers, of diaphanous folds and glorious textures in your personality.
When our love was set and rolling, you were like the falling leaves of autumn: colorful, varied, and utterly spellbinding.
I could roam through your huge expa

Over the course of the last 23 months as a deviant, I've seen some things that most others never get the chance to, and I've seen the highs and lows of the community. I've seen the transfer from version to version with the each new August; I've seen what it's like to be a deviant; I've seen what it's like to wear the staff hat as well; I've even seen being banned. But, I ask you this: Why am I still here? What makes me keep coming back here, and supporting this place so strongly? What it is I'm yet to find properly and define, but I know for sure, it's slowly dwindling away, fading into the distant memories of better times when deviantART was simply the best website around without the slightest shadow of a doubt. No'urdays, community seems to be taking a backseat to the corporate ventures the site seems to be undertaking at an exponentially quick rate. With every passing day, a new move towards turning dA into exactly what it is not: a corporation.

But now the pain is mine.
You found a way out
But my pain gets worse with time.
I loved you more than life itself.
You were my best friend.
You promised me you'd be there
Until the very end.
You kept your word, you were always there;
But why did the end come so soon?
Why did you chose to take your life
Alone- that day in your room?
I could've helped you
I could've eased the pain.
But now that you're gone
Nothing is the same.
I miss you so much,
Sometimes it's hard to go on.
My life will never be the same,
Now that my best friend... is gone.

Izaya regaining his senses curled into a ball and placed his hands over his ears as if he didn't want to hear something. He felt his body tremble , no longer able to control himself.
As he realized it , the same word ringed through his mind , endlessly repeating ; Control.
He had lost control , he , out of all people , had lost control over himself. He had been reduced to what he hated the most , being human.
He loved humans but he considered himself to be one of a kind and the thought of going through the same thing anybody else could've lived made him panic.
Noticing the informant's odd behavior Shizuo leaned over him " Shit what's wrong with you now?"
But there was no answer , Izaya was too far locked in his thoughts , watching himself crumble as all of his beliefs of being out of the reach of human weaknesses were now proved wrong.

Turns out I walked straight through Austria and was wandering around in some forest. God knows how I ended up there, and God knows how Ill get out.
Being smart as I am, I quickly came up with a plan. I figured if I kept walking south, I should find a city, right? They could help me find my way back. Hell, if I told them I was one of the nations, they might even carry me home.
So I walked for what seemed like hours, seeming to pass the same shit over and over. Going in circles? Agh. Well, so wastes another bit of my life.
I finally found an opening from all of those damn leaves and trees. "Ha! I found some place! Im so awesome"
Taking in my surroundings, I paused mid-self-praise.
