LongingYou're happy, you're laughing
It's the most adorable sound
I don't want to take my eyes off of you
You have me here spellbound
I love you so very much
You make my world a better place
It's like you wash all my worries away
Just with a simple embrace
And then I open my eyes just to find
That I'm still alone on the dark
Alone but surrounded by people
And that's what's breaking my heart
Surrounded by my loved ones
We're together but still we're apart
When I close my eyes again
I'm right back there in your embrace
And I wonder why this isn't real
'Cause I can so clearly see your face
But it is nothing but my mind
Trying to keep you here
'Cause it's killing me that you're gone
I just want you to be near
And when I open my eyes I find
That I'm still alone in the dark
Alone but surrounded by people
And that's what will heal my heart
Surrounded by my loved ones
They'll help me to a new start

No fairytales were read.
As if it was forbidden,
By the monsters in her head.
And all they thought was silly,
Was quickly thrown away.
By a girl who had to grow up,
By a girl who couldn't play.
All her dreams and fantasies,
All her fears and hopes.
Thrown in a bag of garbage,
Balloons and skipping ropes.
The teddybears and puzzles,
All had to retreat.
For new puzzles in her head,
She never would complete.
No poetry was written,
No fairytales were told.
Her eyes spoke of a sad tale,
Her hands were always cold.
She thought of no white horses,
For she was no princess.
Her life was about papers,
And secret loneliness
All her dreams and fantasies,
Would never come true now.
For she had forsaken them,
Without knowing how.
Remember how happy she was.
She doesn't even know.
The little girl she used to be,
Was forgotten long ago.
poetryI write because I canpoetry10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I write because I will
I write what's on my mind
And I write that with a quille
No need for memory
Or any sign of sin
Just some words from my mind
And here's where it begins
I sit in a room of hurt and dispair
Maybe start writing about that girl crying over there
She seems so lifeless, tired and weak
With long black and red hair covering her face while she weeps
They aren't always right
They aren't always true
They aren't always about me
Not all about you
But they're about something
I'm yet to find out what
They come from my mind
Sometimes from my heart
I can write of love
I can write of pain
I can write of hate
I can write in vein
But one thing I can't do is say what I know
Because that young girl crying could ruin the show
The one in the corner with the black and red do
That one about the crying is about me not you.

No fairytales were told.
By a girl turned into woman,
by a woman who grew old.
All the fantasies of childhood,
Drowned inside her heart.
Consumed by sense and reason,
A poem torn apart.
She married someone clever,
And watched her children grow.
And never thought of playgrounds,
And dreams of long ago.
And as she raised her daughter,
To avoid tragedy,
She told the girls no tales,
And read no poetry.
She brought up a young woman,
To be sensible and sane.
The child would know no dreaming,
So she would know no pain.
She never thought of castles,
For she was no princess.
Her life full of achievements,
Never knew happiness.
All poetry forgotten,
All fairytales were lost.
But she made lots of money,
So never mind the cost.

Will you be there when i die
kiss me one final time
catch me when i fall and bleed
would you even wanna cry
while you watch me slowly die
watching as my blooddrips
rolling off my finger tips
drips onto the floor
more and more
hearing all my bloody cries
watch tears roll from my eyes
gasping for one final breath
pain swells up in my chest
spreading through my arms and legs
but i can still feel pain
i try to regret nothing
but that is so hard to do
when all i hear is
"but i love you"
The ProtectorI want to keep her safeThe Protector6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I just want to protect her
But there's no way I can do that
Being with me means being in danger
I can keep her safe
From anything that could hurt her
Except for myself
I am far too much of a monster
So the safest thing I can do
Is to keep her away from me
While trying to keep her safe from distance
That's just the way it has to be
And I know that it will hurt her
But she'll be better off that way
And she might not understand
Why I have to keep away
But I couldn't live with myself
If she got hurt because of me
So no matter how I love her
This is the way it has to be
I do it because I love her
Maybe someday she will see
ParentsWhat is wrong with parents nowadays,Parents10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
They take your dreams and throw them away,
They dress you in clothes you dont want to wear,
Tell you what to do, force you to cut your hair,
They run your lives and scream at you,
Force you what to say and what to do,
Until you cant take it and your run out the door,
Nowhere to go, just the hard, cold floor,
But you always go back to the hellish place,
Get right up to them face to face,
Look them right in the eye and then you say,
Stay out of my life!, you cause me internal Dismay,
You make my life shittier everyday,
Ground me and take everything away,
Im done with you, dont talk to me,
And when im 18, you will see,
You changed me for the worse by holding me back,
You ruined my life, the parent hood you lack,
You dissapear in my mind, I threw you away,
All because parents are shitty these days.

In words so unspoken,
And the places
No eye catches.
In the shade of behemoth movement,
Watching a life
Behind the borders of mind,
Without a breath or word
A reason to question the air above my head.
How I breathe
And am held down,
And crawl through forests
Still as the sky.
And listen to what was always there
Between branches and channels,
Learn from each
To know yourself.
And the one's you would surrender it all for.
Continue with that emblem
Out of corners.
Make the road your own.
Forget each curve
And listen in silence.
There we find answers that we only dreamed to know.

Wiccan WishWiccan WishWiccan Wish10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
If I could make one wish,
And know that it would come true
I'd wish the whole world wiccan
So you can be a witch too.
I think wiccans get the best in life,
We also get the worst
But thats because the Christians
Rained upon our faith a curse
Common misconceptions of our faith include
Bloodletting, putting spells on men,
Riding broomsticks, eating children
And consorting with Satan
But on the inside, it's not like that,
Nothing like that at all
We're all a part of an intricate web,
A web thats called the world
We stand in circles and call to us
Energy to love and heal
We thank the lord and lady
For what we get out of this deal
We celebrate all of nature
In an intimate way,
Marking all our sabbats with
The dark of night and light of day
We see life as a circle
A never ending cycle
In death we see new beginning
Not the start of trouble
If the whole world was wiccan
More trees would be standing
Greed would almost be nonexistent
And less wars would be starting

Sonic and Shadow were at their house watching a movie. Shadow had been silent during the movie but then Sonic got worried and Sonic spoke up."Shadow, do . . .do you want to talk?

When I had YouWhen I had You4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I remember there was a time,
When I thought I had committed a crime.
I remember feeling my mind wonder,
As the first idea of you went through me like thunder.
First all I could feel was a hollow fear,
Then came the first happy tear.
My little baby nestled within me,
I just thought of how it would be.
A warm little someone to love and protect,
This little person I would never regret.
A son or a daughter,
Would be my joy and laughter.
I didn't care if they threw me out,
This child was mine without a doubt.
I would sit awake for hours,
Thinking of the blessed powers.
How wonderful it was to have you!
Being absolutely steadfast and true!
And my love was unconditional,
There was no want for anything additional.
When I told your father,
He wasn't thrilled that I was going to be a mother.
He was scared,
He worried how this was to be shared.
In a rush of emotion,
I threatened to keep you from his devotion.
My little miracle from heaven's beauty,
He was such a calamity.
He wasn't worthy of seei

You made me fall inside and outwards
-when you blew it out of proportion
my love for you is like an extortion
…ever since I was little, you made me feel-
You made me feel raw emotions, ever so real.
I only wish I could show you, mother
How you make me feel like no other.
You make me feel abandoned, useless-
Like I should remain actionless,
-Like I'm unimportant to you anymore-
You make my love feel like a chore.
I always try, I really do…
…To speak any words I have for you
But you shut me down, make me feel like shit
…make me feel like I want to end it
I know these are things you grew up on-
-But I feel like I will soon be gone
…forever from your life, no words to be shared
…because you made me feel like you never cared.
Because you have showed me these things, I have tried…
…tried to never be like you, to save my pride
…I find we are no longer in tune because of this
I forgot happiness, I forgot bliss
You, mother, I have found, are one of the reasons…

I'll take all my
Anger, sadness, joy, appreciation, observation
The metaphysical, the ethereal
And put it onto here.
Write black ribbons onto white paper
And unravel the sphere
Of flowing thoughts and clashing voices
The crashing of waves and the foam of the sea.
I think poetry in the shower
Poetry in my sleep
Poetry before and after I make a leap
I think poetry when I watch people dying
And when I hear children sighing
Poetry when I watch a machine
All in those monochrome films in history.
Though I feel it, I still don't know the words
Forming in my mouth but not coming out
Like tears that haven't been formed
They exist mentally, but pyschically it has no form.
I'll take this
And place it onto here
And if you stay very silent
You can hear the moving of gears
The heavenly spheres being the spark of electricity
Moving me, driving me into the ground
The silence resound.
And I'll take this
Emotion- this devastation, this reverberation
All that makes a human free

"Can't died in a war."
Don't bother me when I'm cooking and don't ask for a cookie, it'll spoil your dinner. I've told you a thousand times. Play with fake guns and tool sets and for God's sake be careful when you grow up. Stay out of the street and out of your father's closet; you know he hates it when you scuff his shoes. Don't pull the dog's tail, don't try to ride him, just pet him nicely and play fetch OUTSIDE. You're a bull in a china shop. Stand up straight. Don't pick your nose. Don't make faces like a whiney little spoiled brat. Never let anyone see you cry or you'll never be seen as a man. Don't go near girls or you'll turn gay or become a womanizer. You've got to play sports. If you aren't he best, try harder. Nobody loves a loser, and no one notices people who don't stand out.

Where the sun shines through the trees
My dearest friend, I remember you
But do you remember me?
Do you recall the laughter
That would scare away the cranes
And how we sat in fields of clover
Making daisy chains
Do you recall the park we found
And climbing up the tree
Then sitting under its cool, kind shade
Serving imaginary tea
Or the time I snuck into the yard
Of a builders, like a mouse
To steal some wood and rope
To make a cubbyhouse
Remember fishing at the creek
That time where I fell in
And you dived in to save me
Though you hadn't learnt to swim
Remember when we made those swords
And saved the world together
Or riding bikes with training wheels
No matter what the weather
All these days are in my past
My childhood's slipped away
I'd give anything to have you back
If only for a day
And though I wish it wasn't so
Nothing does last forever
I keep fragments of the past safe inside my mind
But I wish we were still together
I loved those days of playing

I'm sorry I wasn't there for you when it was your 5th Birthday. I wasn't able to see the happiness striking across your face, the anticipation running through your veins at the point of opening your presents. The blissful joy of all your friends and family around you as they sang happy birthday, that day was a memory I never had the chance to remember.
I'm sorry I wasn't there for you when you had your first day at school. It was like a new world for you filled with friendship, independence and above all, fun. I'll always regret not being there to pick you up after school and having you run into my arms at a thousand miles per hour, as though you hadn't seen me in years. Those days when you came home and started humming a harmonious song that you learnt, it was a tune I'd never hear.
I'm sorry I wasn't there for you when you were eight years old and just learnt to ride your first bike. The breeze going through your hair as yo
