And cry for your pain
Could ache for your loss
And hurt for your shame
Walk away from the sun
You're coming undone
And you don't tell anyone.
beware the story-book wolvesthe darkness creeps closerbeware the story-book wolves6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
the tendrils of sickly yellow light
wrap their fingers around consciousness
squeezing out the dregs of last emotions
trapped in the walls of the mind, never to escape
a presence of something taking over
its malevolent designs still unknown
wanting to break down, take over, control, and own
tears can't fall, stifled by terror and fear
choking on bitter bile that threatens to rise
dominated by horror, assaulted by strain
try to cast away the inner ghosts that ensnare
take captive every living thought and soul
a mind warped by tension and pain
beware the story-book wolves...

Hey I answer it
Who is this?
Um, well, I was told to call you. He's been hurt. He wanted me to call so you would know. The words pound in my brain, flash across my eyes. Hurt. It has to be bad. You never bothered before when you got hurt. I sink to the cold tile floor.
Its bad. He got in a fight, stopped these guys from beating up a girl.
How bad? Tell me.
He's in ICU. If he makes it the night, he'll be fine. But he has to make it through tonight. Tears slide down my cheeks, shock starts to sink in, the phone shakes.
Can I come visit him? Please?
Yeah. Call his cell when you get here. I'll come pick you up.
Okay. I'll leave now. Bye I hang up the phone and just sit on the kitchen floor of my apartment. Tear

But I just can't seem to hear
Echoing silence is all that I feel
Withdraw deeper, pulling away
Distancing you from me
Please? Don't let me leave.

but i just can't seem to be able to find it
no matter how hard i look, it always escapes
its not as black and white, not so clear cut
as everyone wants me to believe
i thought i might have had found the light
then you came, now i'm confused again
i don't know what to think, don't know what to feel
all i know is that i want to feel real
but this is the bitter taste of failure
and just another hollow hallelujah

but i'll be here to pull you out of the cold, stop the bleeding...
are you gonna run away, leave me alone?
stay here, let me heal the scars that cut so deep?

Tangled Webs Within...The rain pours downTangled Webs Within...6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Washing all this away
Cleansing my soul
Of sorrow and pain
The heaviness finally dispelling
I think I can breathe
Your presence still lingers
But no longer oppressive
Your warmth surrounds me
Even though you are gone.
So many pages have stains
Black streaks of running ink
From all the tears I've hidden.
As the seasons change so slowly
So life runs the same
I wish time would stop
So I could stay here forever
Lost in this happiness, this peace
That I have finally caught a glimpse of.
I still miss you, wish you were here
But you're not and life still spins
Weaving it's tangled webs around me
But at least now I can see.

Taking over me
Tossed to and fro
Drowning in this sea
Pull me closer
Lull me to sleep
Arms wrapped around me
Still waters run deep

Alexithymia...Have you never tasted tears?Alexithymia...6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The bitter taste of sadness,
Anger, defeat, and heartbreak?
Or are you so closed off
Your walls so very high
That you have never experienced
The joys and trials and pains of life?
Have you never opened up your heart
To let another in?
Have you pushed them all away
Never believing them
When they say
"I love you"?
How lonely are you
How very closed off
How very empty
When you say that you
Have never tasted the bitter taste of tears.

the shadows on the walls
and the whispers in the halls
we are the lonely
the doubting, the hopeless
we are the lost.

that are burning their way
through my mind.
stop all the clocks
keep me here in time
i don't want you to leave.
i won't let you say goodbye,
i won't let you slip away from me
can you see the stars are crying tonight?
as the twilight slips into darkness
so too these tears slip down, unbidden.
try to swallow them, choke them back
but the harder i try, the faster they fall
please don't leave me here, alone.
can you hear the cries of the stars?
they are echoing mine. the sky
calls out of this deepening darkness
reaching out of this broken soul
and now you will see me,
watch me fall as i fall
ever further into
darkness, and i
i wonder if you
can, can you,
hear heaven crying?
these are the tears of an angel
