The moment I was put to Death
I watched my world unfold;
And took it in one failing breath
Amid the sinking cold.
I saw the waters part for me,
The prison walls come down;
And held my head up gallantly
Prepared myself to drown.
The war drum beat in unison
With my instable heart,
While I marveled at the passion of
Its long-forgotten art.
Then quick, the noose, with bitter force
Was tightened round my neck,
til blood began to change its course
and surge along the wreck.
I felt the world dissipate
In a white, magnesium flash,
And blind, began to levitate
Into the bidding Past.
And felt the warmth of gentle seas
Lull still the vessel tossed.
Now silent in the reverie
Of new beginnings lost
Then soaring high above, I left
My shell that winter morn.
The moment I was put to Death
Was the moment I was born.

we are only waiting.you are ugly and beautiful and terrible and good. you are bob dylan, and i do not why or how (maybe it's the hair, or maybe it's your words). you are running down the highway with me, and we are breathing through our knees. ministers and pastors and preachers are hiding from us. our parents are mortified because we are nothing, not anything.we are only waiting.6 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
our shirts are torn and have too many paint stains to be beautifully messed up, we are past beautifully messed up, we are just here.
we are only waiting for you to save enough money for a car, and we will be gone. everywhere we go i will show people the alphabet that is tattooed on my neck, and i will be a paragraph in their unsuccessful novels. and it will not matter (we will be gone).
VoiceThe cold burns on my skinVoice6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But your warmth still remains
The dark makes my vision blur
Everything but the sight of you
Your love makes my heart stop
The way your scent still lingers
Your eyes makes my mind shut down
Leaves me alone to drown in them
But your voice...
Your voice is why I can still hear
Your words make no sense
Yet I must repeat them slowly
Quietly your words come out
Saying them one last time I understand
We didn't make it...
The world fades away
All but your voice
Those deafening words
A Fly In The DarkI am tired of blinding darkness,A Fly In The Dark6 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
The world has had enough madness.
From despair's ashes I rise,
With a flame of hope in my eyes.
The last pained tear has dropped,
Bird of agony shall soon be stopped.
It wont circle the world anymore;
Won't bring terror, torture and war.
My wings made from mighty fire,
Are raising me higher and higher.
I'll illuminate the world with my light,
The shadows shall be called to fight.
The world has suffered enough cries,
It has heard enough terrible lies.
Instil In Me Your LoveAs your stare pierces right through me..Instil In Me Your Love5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Your pupils dilate, absorbing my every emotion..
I Feel heavy, my knees yielding..
As though i might collapse if gravity doesn't stop working against me..
I push my body against yours, grateful that there is some sort of solid substance holding us upright; and to be near.. Close.. So close.. Enough to feel the warmth of your breath on my chin..
I move closer, I can almost feel your lips on mine..
I do not move, nor you..
I absorb this moment.. Instil it.. In my memory..
With my fingers caressing your face.. You gasp as my bottom lip lightly brushes yours.. I run my tongue across your top lip and you shudder instantly..
My heart gives in, and our lips meet as we simultaneously inhale deep.. Our tender kisses over- lock each other, and my sensations intensify..
I gently grip my hands around your waist and pull your hips closer to mine.. Longing to feel the warmth of your body..
I run my fingers down your arm.. My middle finger caressing your palm
she glued my hands together.It is too bad no one told you these things before, it really is. I want to get down on my knees and pray to all the maybe-Gods out there, ask them if they know what will happen to us, if it is too late after all. I think they would all be insulted because I do not actually believe in them, they would leave me unanswered. That is okay though.she glued my hands together.6 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Because I can shake you until you are screaming for me to stop, I can paint a book of words, and make the i-do-not-care's turn into i-need-to-feel-alive-again's, I can watch you glue my hands together. I will not do these things though.
Tonight I will walk through the anonymous streets, past empty eyes and mouths saying things they do not (want to) understand, I will walk up our stairs with the paint chipping and the squeaking growing louder with every step, I will walk into our living room, and you will tell me about the way people's heads do not turn when you fall down screaming anymore, and all I will be able to do is nod my head to

It throws us away coldly,
Makes us feel alone,
You feel death is the only answer.
It initiates a tempest in ourselves,
launches a depression,
No reason to be alive.
The warmth of a heart
is what we're eager for.
To be able to live once more
To feel love, be whole again.
From darkness, to light.
And that will be the day
When our hearts meet,
To begin a future together,
con todo mi amor y más.
I chose you...Because it was the first night we ever spoke, and we were flying down the highway, going 90, flipping through radio stations. We didn't know each others middle names, how old we were, or what made us jump into this car, on this night.I chose you...6 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Because you were the first person to tell me I should try being open, and you were the first person who made me want to be. You made me want to tell you about my dead grandma, the way I love Chinese food, but my best friend left me, and now it's just a reminder, I wanted to tell you I felt pretty beside you, and I loved the way you smell.
Because you never called me "beautiful, hot, sexy, pretty, or good lookin." You didn't have to, and when I told you I thought the sky looked perfect, you said the clouds were in the way, and that night I felt perfect, and decided the sky didn't matter so much.
Because I spent hours trying to get a glimpse of your teeth, but whenever you would smile I was too distractedhappyblinde to look, and when I finally did, I

My breath caught in my throat, and my heart skipped a beat. Jesse stared at me, with a wide smile. Waiting. I wanted to say I love you back, but I couldn't force the air out of my lungs. Jesse's smile slowly faded into a frown as I remained silent.
"Cali?" He asked. I stared into his bright blue, waiting eyes. I nodded, still not having the ability to speak. "Are you going to say anything?"
"Uh " I mumbled. "I I love you, too" I finally got the words out. Jesse smiled so wide I thought his face might crack. He bent his head, and placed his lips eagerly on mine. I suddenly felt something sharp scratch my lip, and then Jesse was gone.
I gasped, and my hand flew to my lip. I looked at my hand, drops of blood coating it. I scanned the room for Jesse, and found him standing in a dark corner of his room. There was a slight pain in my lip, and I could feel drops of blood slowly roll down my chin.
"W-What " I whispered. Two red eyes stared at me from the corn

Always on my mind

I have no ways to explain how she makes me feel...
What words in the world could we use to describe
What words could you use to describe how much
you really love somebody?
Maybe a thousand astral cords tied to the tip of
your tongue, and maybe just one spiral galaxy
wrapped around your ankles.
But what is as perfect as a hundred leagues
under the sea, that first gasp of ocean and rock

the gaps between your ribs and the walls of your
Our love growing like the universe, by particle, by stars, by worlds, getting ever wider to line up our perfect future, our world together, her love is my star, the warmth of the sun by her touch, the smile as wonderful as the eclipse but never as rare but still as perfect.

IslamIslam in generalIslam7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Islam is incredible
To be a little suitable
Quran is lyrical and truthful
Humble when I read it
Humble when ever I hear it
Islam is a way of life
Islam is my way of life
Islam is the only truth in this life
Now tell me whats right
Mistaken for the wrong mind
Just let the creatures
And the human preachers take all the wounds of this nature
Too hard on paper!
God did give you the past the present and the future written
All you got to do is look into it and start pitching
And if your ashamed of the way you livin
Open the doors of Islam and youll be full of blessings
After the RainI.After the Rain5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
After the rain
that's when the world is magical
The dirty asphalt sparkles and shines
Dew-laden leaves twinkle like diamonds in the sunlight divine
It's so surreal, so unimaginable
After the rain
The grass has an aura of emerald green
Everything feels so pure and clean
It's so beautiful, it must be a dream
As I watch the flowers glisten and gleam
After the rain
All the pain and strife is washed away
The sun rises, this is the start of a brand new day
The forces of evil are kept at bay
And it's so wonderful to see the children laugh and play
After the rain
I feel a surge of happiness
I think the day is truly blessed
It's a sort of adrenaline rush you might have guessed
As I greet the day with unbridled zest
Life is so beautiful
The trees are so fruitful
My feelings of joy I can't restrain
It's something that I can't explain
I just know it only happens after the rain

Dark poetryBLOODLUST!Dark poetry7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A sword into my flesh I thrust.
The only emotion I now create.
How else should I feel?
Death begins to appeal;
The only one I ever could truly love,
I can no longer talk to.
My path is blocked by an iron glove,
Balled into a FIST,
Of all the madness,
Life is unfair,
But all the borders and boundaries of it to break I constantly dare.
This face of indifference I wear,
Veils all the pain,
And all other forms of anguish,
That I feel I will always bear.
I feel both murderous,
A life so marvellous,
Has been stripped from me without trial.
I should have known it was only temporary;
Ive always lived this life in misery.
All this madness,
I am caused by humans,
Makes me want to die.
BUT I WILL TAKE THEM DOWN WITH ME!
Ohne dich, so muja, my life is hardly worth living.
I am nought but a soul in torment,
I need to

I shall tenderly love thee
till the day my soul leaves this place
because my heart doth not belong to me,
this love is sweet to my soul
and i know these words may seem bold
but my heart, in your hand you hold.
such beauty you bring to this dark place
and may our souls never leave this embrace
you take all the darkness
and turn it to delight
you take away my pain
and leave me staring out into the night

could i keep such a beautiful thing
or is this all just a dream.

and i can't turn back to norm.

because I love you so
So please just let me caress you in my heart.
and i will do so even when were apart.
because i can honestly look at you
and say that this love is true.
so as the sun of life
is setting for so many
over the mountains it is peaking
for you and me.
let us not let something so true
just slip through.
ConfessionsScreams echo off her rib cageConfessions9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Fears claws rabid at her heart
Something shatters deep inside her
Watch her slowly fall apart
A delicate flower in the pathway
A timid kitten in the street
A dog leashed too far from water
A winged bird's clipped, defeat
Haunting unremembered nightmares
Shadows loaming in her mind
A caress to make her shutter
A touch to hold her bind
Can't you see she's not breathing?
Look closely she can't sigh a word
Inside she's slowly dying
Her voice rings out, unheard
She calls out but she's drowning
Floundering flying tiny lark
Her heart, beats, scrambling
Terrified of the dark
The dark howls of the thunder
The menace of her mind
Her foreshadowed illusions
Grasp her from behind
The whole world turns against her
Her candle flickers, dim
Her tears soak the pillow
And all because of him
A monster of the shadows
A fiend you thought was friend
She's never felt so hollow
Begs it all to end
What's left for her but teardrops
What left is there to do?
So hopeless in the shado
this is me-This is me missing you: The same jeans as yesterday, and the day before, and the day before.

This is me loving you (still): Leaving enough room for you to get in bed, just in case. Drawing you pictures of hearts and writing "Te Amo" as large as my tired hands will let me. Listening to your music, because you really cannot stand mine.
This is me needing you: Falling down the apartment's stairs, looking for my left contact lens, people walking right by me. People asking where the hell you went, and having no answer for them. Spinning and spinning and spinning, and having no one to fall with. Empty beds, empty pillows that still have the imprint of your head. Mattresses worn down from where we slept.
This is me trying to forget you: Kissing a nice boy, and urgent sex that says nothing more than, "We are not

she believes in faries and gnomes, and i believe in you + me and everything else that might fall in between, and all he can say as he looks into her eyes and sees the reflection of the stars, is me too.
he believes because she believes, and when she smiles the stars alight with new found light, and he falls in love all over again because he can, and he will. he paints her with colours made of whispers and faith, and she's the most beautiful thing he ever laid eyes on.
when she kisses him, he tastes a mixture of smoke and ash, because she's burns with a passion so strong it takes him all he has to not burn in her, with her. do you believe in fate? and as he watches her fingers dance over white ivory keys, i think i do.
she rolls over in the tall, dancing grass and looks at him. baby, you look exquisite. a mixture of diamonds and pearls and perhaps a touch of love. running a finger down her jaw line, he clos

Can you please tell me, is there any hope for me?
I feel like the earth is pulling me down
I feel like the wind is making me frown
I feel like the sun is making burns on my skin
I feel like the sea ruthlessly sucks me deep in
Earth, wind, sun, sea
The loneliness is killing me
The days and nights feel cold
I am crying in my bed
thinking about what I am told
by my friends that care about me
I am sweet and cute, they say
Well I guess they have a point
But I don't see it that way
Earth, wind, sun, sea
When I look in the mirror
it is ugliness I see
but it's the inside that counts
is what my friends tell me
Why can't a nice girl see
through my outside looks
I want to be someone's hero
like in fairy tale books
Earth, wind, sun, sea
My inside is good
or at least I try
can't a nice girl see that
and choose me as her guy
As I continue to stare
I feel more and more rotten
Cupid helped many people
but I remain forgotten

she is unknown
she met someone
they became friends
they wanted that day
to never end
but on the moment
she opened her eyes
her friend was gone

she looked for him
she was very sad
for he was the only
friend she had
she cried and cried
with nothing to be done
she spread her arms

Whenever hungry you eat
Whenever cold you hide under a blanket
Whenever thirsty you drink that icy water
Whenever in need you have many to provide for you
Whenever sad you seek home's comfort
Whenever down you receive a hug
Now think for a minute
Just for a while..
That human beings just like you and I,
Are deprived, humiliated, killed,
And we are just watching them die...
The largest most inhumane prison exists today
And we are still quiet
When an entire city is dying?
Why do we deny this is happening?
Why aren't we even sighing?!
RainWaiting for something newRain5 years ago in Open More Like This
Just to find out how it works.
Things never seem to become
They just are
Maybe when I found you, you were just a dream
Not really real
Like the way music is to my mind
Those times that I slept by you
Heard your heart beating
Tasted your lips sighing
Felt your skin breathing
I just wanted to be close to you,
To hold you in my life
And feel the warmth of knowing
That you would never leave me
Like trying on a new pair of shoes
The ones that fit just right
A little pinch here and there
But we were made for each other
Like two raindrops side by side
Crawling down the freezing window
Finally join as they reach the painted sill
And fall with the torrent towards the ground
This never seems to happen in the real world
Two raindrops side by side
Falling together from a rain-cloud
Splash on a mountaintop and run down opposite sides
Into separate oceans
Never to see each other again
But raindrops don't cling to each other
The way we do
We are lost yet
We are entangled
