Risingpoor child in madness and pain you treadRising8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
your past is shut away, hidden from view
too little know what pains you in your head
but you're unable to embrace the few
a child stumbling in the snow, you cry
flames roar 'round loved ones in eternal sleep
little girl's smile, two small teeth cast aside
your first true love, from you in fear she flees
music briefly aids to relieve the pain
but none can heal your shattered, injured heart
dark eyes as red as snow with crimson's stain
they gave a name for your too eager part
dwarfing others, you leave them in your shade
few know this monster was not born but made
I Murder My LineageI murder my lineageI Murder My Lineage6 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
The burden of my saneness
Set not with grace or plainness
Beset with vanity
Greatness, grandeur, call my name
I long to be called among you!
Desires, I have oer-wrung you
Now, freedom, set me free
Disease of the heartInfatuation was subtleDisease of the heart7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like the lion stalks its prey
Watching everyday to see your pretty smile
Wispy hair and soft skin
What else was I to do?
You apologize for twisting my heart
His love was better than I
could have been
Satisfying the overwhelming need to have you
for my own,
What else was I to do?
down the hallway
down the hallway
A sharp glance around, but you'd never see me
Plotting is for the weak minds
Obviously why I did so
Subtlety pissed me off
By this time, you should know what's happened
To your pale, smooth flesh.
We weren't meant to be
But you were meant to be in this locket
Kept around my neck for eternity.
I'm shocked your parents
Your beautiful family members
Couldn't hear the scream
The small ripping slit.
Climbing through windows is simple
The quick tear of your flesh under the
grip of my wires.
Ah, what a sweet, sweet sound.
A melancholy symphony

A cold wind blows, across the plain of my life
Once fertile, now, only weeds run rife
The trees have died, the grass lay waste
Even the clouds move on in haste
I don't know when the rain ceased its fall
I didn't notice the worlds paltry pall
I was too busy, too happy and aloof
Playing in rainbows painted on my roof
You'd planted flowers that bloomed in the field
Their wonderful scent a welcome yield
You made the birdsong so soft and so sweet
You laid the sunshine down at my feet
My world was warm, whole and complete
My happiness genuine, my joys replete
I lay in your arms, so safe and so calm
Cocooned in our love, my heart in your palm
The chill wind bites, it tugs and it whirls
The dead leaves stirring, limp grass it unfurls
There is nothing left, no warmth and no love
No life left to live, just one wounded dove
I would keep on walking, but I don't have the strength
I don't have the heart to keep walking the length
My eyelids are heavy, just as is my heart
My legs they wont move, they
.Somnambulist.I am caught in those loops,.Somnambulist.6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where time twirls and becomes one big hoop.
Sleeping while being alert, awake,
Somnambulist amongst the normal,
Unable to untwine the two,
The two tangled into one,
This turned into none.
And as I waste away in the mirror,
On the other side of my fragile reflection,
My mind is decaying,
And my body is going to ruins.
And try as I might,
To break loose,
Im left sleep walking once again.
Bugs In My BlanketThere are bugs that crawl in my blanket,Bugs In My Blanket6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Making me tingle and whimper in fear,
Sore and shivering, feverish tonight.
How had they come here, at this time, tonight?
Unseen hands placed them there, in this blanket
That once kept me safe from this twilight fear.
I sweat and scratch at these bedsores with fear.
The moon wanes as my time wanes tonight.
Im soon to be cold and still in my blanket.
I fear death sleeps in this blanket tonight.
