One More Night Of SolitudeThis night has guided meOne More Night Of Solitude2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Towards where my hopes lie
If I could talk to you, only
Where can I find you, in the sky?
Are you looking down on me?
This solitude is like starvation
Oh, I sit down by this pine tree
I cannot resist this temptation
In silence I meditate
On images that I see
The future that I can't foresee
Ancient spirit of the moon
I ask for your guidance
To your light I attune
To overcome her absence
Grant me the gift of resurrection
For there is only one thing that I want
To strengthen this liminal connection
I want to know, are you now an ascendant?
Every night, when I can only think of you
Malicious InsanityAnd so, in delight we remain blindMalicious Insanity2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Unconsciously rejecting your inner self
Until one thing provokes the other
And consciously, we try to find
our inner peace, again
Until we meet again
You and I
Daemon, my disgust
Begone with all the hatred
you built up in my mind
And so, in sadness we are aware
Consciously accepting your limitations
Until another daemon will find us
And eliminates our defense
Try to restore your fallen glory
For reasons unknown to this daemon
Our kin will fight on
Pursuing our final embrace
And so, our body and mind will resolve
This bitter issues we
now are aware of
Holding you to a higher standard

And the music dissipated.
Where melodies flowed
There are arid lake beds.
And I once convinced myself
This was normal,
Lack of inspiration
I felt around you was
But it wasn't love this
That choked up fields
Of creativity and left
Flowers gasping for water.
If love is like a river,
Why did my heart Shrivel up?

Because I've got nothing to lose.
Standing up tall,
Because I get to choose.
Getting up after a fall,
Because I'm not giving up.
Even if I just crawl,
I will work my way up.

Through every vertebrae I can feel it.
One, two, three, it went through.
This thing that crawls up my spine.
Right where my neck is.
It sits there.
Making the little hairs stand on end.
Does it really have this much control.
It continues through the back of my neck.
It drills into my skull.
Making one small hole.
Big enough that it can fit itself through.
These monosyllables, these words
Cannot express it.
It courses through my brain.
Swimming through all my thoughts.
Until It lodges itself somewhere
In the soft tissues of my mind.
This wonderful thing
Hidden DarknessThis is a recent discovery,Hidden Darkness2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
about you, made by me,
I've scratched the surface and got a glimpse
of that hidden darkness.
A poem here, a drawing there,
somehow I never saw,
what you've been hiding deep inside
for I don't know how long.
I'd like to help,
I don't know how,
or if you would accept it.
All I know is that it's hard
for me to stand by and see you take it.
Your life seems so sureal to me,
it's hard for me to grasp,
that maybe some of your stories
might have snipits from your past.
I envy your ability,
I really really do,
to create whole worlds
that in their intierity are new.
I know you are not quite alone,

I'm feeling hopeless, why do I stay?
You needed a shoulder, on mine you lay
And all the things I had to say
to you are thrown away
Because, I've waisted many a day
Lying to you, when I'm not okay
So, I'm taking back my life today
Leaving nothing but a memory
Twisted and guarded were they,
The feelings you used to downplay
The ones that lead to my doomsday
Before, you had nothing to say
Now, you plead for me to stay?
I was a fool for you to play
And it was me you cast away
Until I saw the sun's bright ray
It piercedd through ugly skies of grey
It cleansed all of my hearts decay
No more! N

Many days passed. Maybe weeks. Perhaps months? Years? Millennia? You could never know in Esther's cottage. It drifted in a dimension of its own, completely blind to its surroundings. The soft straw roof never fell, the flimsy wood never rotted, the walls were always shined, and the flowers never wilted. The perfect cottage could be spotted from many leagues away, standing out among its dull surroundings. Outside of the instance, Eriond ran in endless circles, chasing butterflies and other colorful, unknown creatures. Lukh stood in silence, watching Eriond from a window. Whenever a mischievous rain cloud decided to try to rain on Er

It had been several days since I had left my home and family to travel the world. So far however all that I had seen was sand, sand and more sand. I stood on the top of a dune scanning the horizon ahead of me. After a few unsuccessful minutes looking for the edge of the desolate wasteland that lay before me, I sighed deeply. It looked as though I wouldn't be out of this hell hole for a while yet. Sweat had begun to gather on my brow and was seeping down into my eyes. I reached up laboriously and wiped my eyes clear. I was losing a lot of moisture in the arid desert conditions and there was no water supply for miles. I reac
SummerlandThe candle is burningSummerland2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Burning ever so fast
The flames seem to show
This prophecy tells
Of the wildest things
None would ever dare to dream of
A past, intertwined with the future
The present not heard of
As if the present did not exist
And a thought came to mind
This is but a dream...
No! It is not
It is foreseen that
The land will change
The sky will fall down to earth
Ever combining counterparts
To create the chemistry as it once was
And in harmony
A world, so divine
Where the human race could live
Next to elves, dwarves and what-not
A realm of fantasy, peace and love
A new world

After a few short minutes I had already reached the top of the spiralling path from the village. The dirt road wound around the bowl like valley that was simply too steep to walk up. I was starting to enter to the wastelands that lay beyond the village when I paused for a moment to turn back and look down upon the small community beneath me, after a moment's contemplation I spun on my heel and continued on my way to the well. An outsider would have gotten lost so very easily out here in the barren and seemingly shapeless waste that I called home, unlike the cities and life filled landscapes that I had heard s

The sky sure was beautiful today I thought, as I lay on my back watching the clouds drift lazily across the sun. I loved watching clouds, the stories each one can tell when you use your imagination are endless; those fluffy shapes unknowing that to me they are weaving tales of serpents and fair maidens or even stories of thieves in the night and epic battles in times past. I pried myself away from the dreams of the day with a sigh and propped myself up on my elbows before I swung my head about to look around me. It took a second for the green spots to disappear from my vision where the sunlight had left its mark, as m

once upon a memory?
Do you remember?
Snowfall and sunshine
guitars and perfect rhyme
Ink and pen
a letter on your windowsill
Red roses with long stems and thorns
Kissing till we've had our fill
My hair was blonde
yours was black
fingers entwined, hand in hand
dancing to our favorite bands.
Smell of coffee
Too big sweat-shirts

A guardian angel is...A guardian angel isn't a spirit that floats around following you. No, it's much more then that. A guardian angel is someone willing to stay by your side through the good times, and the hard ones. Someone to hold you tight as you cry, completely soaking their shirt but they don't mind that part. And when they find out that someone hurt you, get so mad that you have to calm them down. Which, oddly enough, ends up calming you down for a little bit. But what a true guardian angel is, is love. It doesn't matter if that love comes from your brother, your cousin, your best friend, be it a boy or a girl. It can come from many different people.

I like you too much
Nothing can change it
Not what people tell me
Not what you've done
I still like you
The way you smile
The way you laugh
The way we can always talk

The way I feel when I see you

I care too much
I can't lose the opportunity
To see if we can sustain a relationship
If what i'm feeling is real
If you feel the same way

B-c I Would Not Stop for Death Because I Would Not Stop for DeathB-c I Would Not Stop for Death3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
By Jocelyn Dorsey
Because I would not stop for Death--
He tried to stop for me--
His Carriage waited by my door
Like the grim reaper from TV.
I slowly peered--He stood in wait,
And I wanted to escape-
I would not go with him Today--
An' I ran out the back gate.
The grim man--He chuckled--and then
Into his Carriage he hopped--
To catch the old lady--who
Thought that Death could be stopped.
I darted down the nearest road
And thought that I was free--
Suddenly the man--called Death--
Came strolling beside me.
I tried to run but He was fast
And snagged me in his cart--
Then hurried off into

Mummy? Don't say you don't know this freak

It is me, your little baby
No don't say maybe
For this is me
You don't see
This is what you made me
Scream in fear and fright
And I hope that when it's dark at night
I haunt you in every dream
I want to hear your scream
Oh that lovely sound
It will be all around
You will know that I is me
For it is I looking so horribly
I know now that you are terrified
So now be horrified
As your little baby
Your little child

The doctor said I was not going to be the smartest cookie in the cookie jar.
Not knowing how to do things properly.
Taking pills, to keep you focus.
What is ADD?
To me its, a gift.
To others its just a mental retardation problem.
Others may not have ADD.
But I have it.
Proof can be shown.
Even tho I don't look it.
I am in grade 12.
Finishing school with a diploma.
Going to college to become a video game designer.
I have found my one true calling,
Something that'll show the world
I am not a retard, I am like everybody else.
I was born with ADD,
And thanks to god
I have found my path through life.

Beneath the ocean, or under the skies

if she's falling catch and embrace her

nothing will hold her from reaching her
for no boy, no man, can rip her heart
at it's seams
