i hate my knees
the same way that
draw false attention,
the very same
attention that means
nobody ever sees into
the hearts of feral children or
the music they still feel
i spent the whole of may
trying to change the
shape of my lips
because they are not
a mirror of yours
the reptilian love i
can never own is the
only thing i will not give to you
you can have my everything
and i pray that is enough
because you sang to me
so i wrote to you
and while i might not be enough
you can still have
all of the not-enough that i am

Oh, we were such fools.
By "we," I mean the majority human race.
When people who heard the warnings and prayed to their Gods and prepared for that great eternal resting place, we mocked and scorned and rejected them. We, as always, thought we were better and knew what we were doing. Religious mumbo-jumbo could be saved for a later time. Life is all about "now."
And then, when the news started sending out odd reports about strange coincidences and natural disasters, we turned away our heads with our noses in the air. "That doesn't affect us," We said disdainfully as people prepared for the ever-approaching, inevitable end. "We don't believe you."
Oh, we were such ignorant, stubborn fools.
They cried for us to join them, even as the fiery rain started falling and the ground crumbled beneath our feet. They still reached out their hands to us, begging us to come with them and escape the fire. They promised salvation from the terror and still most of us refused them. Once again, we pushed o

You know who I am - not my story.
You've seen the lies - not the truth.
You seen my smile - but not the tears.
You see me laugh - but not the pain I have behind.
So before you judge me - learn my past.
Before you call me names - feel my feelings.
Before you bully me - I'll be dead

I am broken,
Like my life.
Do I really want to go through this night?
The sadness I feel,
All locked inside.
My heart and soul,
Burning with fire.
I am alone,
Or feel that way at least.
No one left,
It becomes even colder now.
I am broken,
Or feel that way at least.
Like my life,
I am alone.
The sadness I feel,
No one is left,
My heart with my soul,
It becomes to cold to bear...

As a little girl
I'd ask momma to check under the bed
And in the closet
For the boogie man
Little did I know as an adolescent child
Any monster I should fear wouldn't be hiding under my bed
Or in the closet
Monsters, monsters, monsters
Screaming in my mind
Yes, no, maybe so?
Momma, momma, make it all go away
I never thought I'd fear anything so small
Pounding my head on the wall, on the desk, everywhere
Rawr, only sound I thought I'd be scared of
Until the screechs in my mind came
Kiss me, make me feel all better, hold me
It won't do any good
Please just make it all go away
Save me from this nonsense
Make all the monsters go away
Leave me alone
Pick on someone your own size
I can't do this
Monsters, monsters, and monsters, oh my
Hiding behind trees and bushes
Under beds and in the closets
And in your own mind
I'm sure I've gone mad
Don't send me to the asylum
I'm not crazy!
I'm breaking down
The monsters are nibbling at the ends
Make it all go away
Make all the monst
The day my love diedMy heart was perfectly satisfied.The day my love died3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My emotions grew and flew with the thought of you.
Knowing you’d be by my side until the very day I die.
I never thought that love could be so true.
The angelic presence my eyes conceived you as was fairly new to me.
My heart was locked up tight.
But you were already waiting there with the key.
You took it without any fight.
Until the day the sky turned to silver gray.
Felt like ash was all around.
The day that destiny took you away.
My knees hit the ground and my soul became unbound.
That drop of water running down my face was just the beginning,
To a extremely painful ending.
Perfect ForcedPorcelain face, golden curls, big brown eyes.Perfect Forced2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Full ruby lips, perfect to kiss.
A fake smile clings to her teeth.
She forces herself not to grit them.
Her skirt is a pretty color - not too long, never too short.
Here they come. A perfect pair - a botoxed face,
and his eyes, that strip away her lies.
Those eyes know too much.
Their mask is happy,
but he's a few steps from an illicit visit in a shady hotel.
She watches the color drain from their faces as they realize.
She smiles too wide.

Late night thoughts.Oh... the sights I'll never see, the dreams that'll never be.Late night thoughts.2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I hold myself back and to a certain degree,
It makes me, well, me.
The cold breeze on my skin, the cold sensational linger of a damaged heart;
I see the clear blue sky,
And oh, oh, it all begins to die. It all fades out, and so I ask why?
The day is nice, the air is rich
And yet we're cold, and yet we're falling...
Why are we falling?
Oh the sights I wish to see, they lead me to believe
That life is what you make it, and I've made it cold, cold indeed.
Backing up with tears in my eyes and oh, the sights I'll never see...
I'm concealing in my heart, things I wish to say
And I'm feeling in my body, the troubles of my day and so I realize, yes, I see clearly now.
Her innocence is my test, and
Her restless beauty, a gift at its best
but tell me love, what do you want me to do?
The sight I dream of most, is the sight of me and you.
And so I ask, when the sun itself ceases to shine...
Do I embrace the darkness, or do I man up and

Whatever game you want, that's what I'll play
No matter what you need, that's what I'll say
It's simply a matter of keeping the peace
What you have on me is more than a lease
Of each other we both have a piece
We laugh together, cry together, we are forever
Tell me what you want and I'll pull the right lever
You take every action you make as your last endeavor
When it's not okay and when it's far greater than that
I know you're there to tip your hat
The support you offer is just that
We are one in body and mind
Though occasionally towards one another we get unkind
Every relationship has bumps to find
Play together, laugh together,
Cry together, live together.
Separation is impossible
and entirely implausible.

That Familiar Blue LightAnd as the light shined throughThat Familiar Blue Light2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
and created it's eery shade of blue,
baby.... I seen myself in you.
Remnants in the shadows of true love, fallen from former glory.
The dreams, the coveting, the memories;
I feel the moment slip into the past,
Why's it so hard for anything to truly last?
And so again, the light shined through...
And projected that eery familiar, dark shaded blue...
And so I see the real, true, skeleton version of you.
You're not as I thought you were;
Hiding your evil... Just another girl with a mask.
You see, love, real life "fairytales"... Seem to die so fast.
And so I ask:
As times passes, and I handle each life task,
What would you say? How would you react, what would you do?
If I was proud, would you feel it too?
.....Do you feel it now? Do you love me still? I doubt it
But mine remains true.
My life is great;
But everything would be greater, if I simply had you.
Ascendas we all are, spirits,Ascend2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
we ascend with every step we take
and are drawn to those journeying with us
We childishly covet those beneath us,
and strive to gain the attention of those above.
In a perfect world, those with bright colors would shine,
and inspire those who haven't the energy to soar.
but our world is far from a utopia,
our luminescent canvases tainted by greys
and the unjust use their means to excel,
and those who once shined without fear...
...are lost in an ocean of disillusion.

Tattoos of empty chairs beside me
Deafening silence echoes through the room
Taste the salt in my mouth
As I'm sitting
Will this ever be let out?
Invisible fists clench my insides
As I'm starting to figure now
There will be no footprints on the dusty floor
Oh no, my head filled with shouts
I look outside
The rain slides down
I grip my empty glass beside me
There's just no way, and just no how
These whirlpools are getting bigger
Try and escape them now
Oh, try and escape them now

Just say yes, and I'll be yours.
If fact, no need to speak, a hug is fine.
Because I'll be yours
And you'll be mine.
And together we can explore the world
Because I'll always be there for you.
And when you get tired of me
No need to fret, just toss me aside and I'll be gone.
I'll be sitting there watching and waiting
Not saying a word.
My only wish, is that someday,
my friend will return...
