The WishThe carrier of a million burdens,
silenced and supressed,
he secretly carries a burning desire....
This world, it kills him inside,
it has taken time to notice he already died...
And now he is left with the wish,
the faces of utter failiure haunt him,
tormented souls scream at him,
voices in his head taunt him....
Left far behind....
The wish is on his mind.....
The wish will not come out his mouth,
for words are always wasted....
Life had became a tragedy from the very start,
the cruel world has ruthlessly torn apart his heart....
Tears freeze for this world is cold....
He doesn't cry, his eyes just burn,
burns just like his
Forgive MeThis outcome was unpredictable,Forgive Me4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
for me undenyable,
forgive me, forgive me.
I don't know the way you feel,
but I just want you to know for you I'll always kneel.
Without you, these wounds will never heal,
so as you can see:
I burst in tears of love when you're near to me,
when it comes to you I feel nothing but apathy,
I feel that us toghether will never be,
forgive me, forgive me!
I'm sitting back here as I admire your lovely face,
can't help it, I bring you up in my mind everyday,
I love to listen to every word you say,
rejecting all those girls, then everyone thinks I'm gay,
I don't mind, everything's still ok
lifeboatA lifeboat paddled slowly toward a nonexistent shore.lifeboat3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
The two occupants had finished their last food tin. Stranded in open water with no radio, they had just one option left.
Daggers poised, they scowled at each other ravenously. The stakes were high.
"Rock. Paper. Scissors."
Smelling blood, the sharks circled.

Every Word I WriteEvery Word I Write4 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
I sat at my desk, looking blankly at the words on the page.
"She looked up at him, and they smiled."
Those were the last words she ever wrote.
I guess she and I weren't serious writers to start off with. She was an energetic Year 11 with a passion for art, and I was a senior with a love for photography. We talked a little at school, but we never let seriousness get in the way of our idle chit-chat. I noticed how, a month or two ago, she had left for a matter of two weeks, but she was the same person again afterwards.
It was a warm summer afternoon, and I was late for the buses. Only the West Ryde service was waiting. From
chromacideall the colors are dyingchromacide4 years ago in Open More Like This
the first rush is forever gone
and faint dreams of distant memories
are the only strands of evidence left behind
from years past when we were young
and tears were scarce
and love was bliss.
all the colors are dying
the chase proves futile now
like running around in concentric circles
that get progressively smaller and less enthusiastic
as we slowly realize our stagnancy
and our determination decays
and we give up completely.
all the colors are dead
the world is frozen white
with an icy sheen of indifference
and all the roses are dried and soaked in glycerin
to preserve their fake red petals forever

as a beautiful place,
but i know better
than to believe you.
the cities are filled with
dust and pollution that clog up
my senses, and fill my nose with
the worst smells in the world.

your voice has always been there
to guide me and show me the

hear through the lies
you tell to protect me.
you talk about her all the time,
and yet i have yet to meet her.
she sounds beautiful;
i wish i could see just to see her.
but when you speak i can
sense the longing and pain
in your voice,
and i can feel your eyes resting on mine.
today you promised to take me

of decaying friendships and backstabbed
trust and cataclysmically pathogenic
rumors whispered through hushed lips and
furtive messages, giving the disseminators
a temporary illusion of superiority;
of burnt bridges and broken connections
and once-intertwined souls fraying like
overstrained rope into separate strands, diverging
because there's nothing holding them together
anymore, tangling into knotted messes of rough fibers
that would take ages to sort out again;
of missed opportunities and storybook romances that
could have been reality if the lead characters had been
