Cause The World To BleedCause the World to Bleed.Cause The World To Bleed5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Slowly rising the apathy;
drown in a pool,
of self pity and doubt.
Reach your hand out,
to grasp life's sympathy.
Find instead a rope.
Long and slender,
dangling from the air;
wrap your fingers around,
and hope to land on ground.
For soon you will surrender.
Cause the World to Bleed.
Lifting you out of,
your sea of hopeless despair.
All you ever wanted,
was all that was ever haunted;
Who knew you would fall in love.
Just by a chance,
you met the one,
who you would spend you life with.
Watch as the dove soars by,
a sure blessing of your love in the sky.
The Gods won't shun.
Cause the World to Bleed.
A new pleasure,
a new day, a new hope.
Simply losing yourself in him,
your life is never dim.
You feel a happiness beyond measure.
Thought out your life,
you've hoped that someday,
you would find true happiness.
Rather that you found affinity,
that will last longer than infinity.
No, it's not just a cliche.
Cause the World to Bleed.

Maybe it was her illness, but she looked like a withered up fragile old woman.
She never looked so beautiful.

A lazy-eyed lioness with a crackling disposition sparked,
By a kamikaze lover's desire,
That burns like fire:
Hungry nude flames raising their arms in mindless ecstasy.
An overflowing glass of champagne,
Sizzling distortedly through your veins,
Whistling like a zooming yellow Porsche,
Bubbles frying before they reach the heavens,
She's irregular fireworks,
From whom Patience flees,
An Italian name caressed by luscious red lips,
Death by tango,
Which she will dance two beats ahead.
Polite words, a rehearsed nod, green tea with honey,
Eyes dark as blood rubies,
Labyrinthine secrets uncoiling their anaconda muscles,
She's a time bomb,
A veiled threat
An inadvertent Delilah with a curtain of silken mahogany hair,
And when she opens her mouth
Oh, where is the exit of Hope?

we lay side by side,
counting the constellations

our eyes; i promised
that we'd go somewhere
far away where we can
in our little nets; we'll laugh
like we did before but
i can feel your arms
around me possessively
as my heart beat
forever and always
letting go of your

Battle for and of the HeartSometimes I cancel myself out,Battle for and of the Heart6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I fill my head with so much doubt.
I wish you could see the real me
Past these scars and insecurity.
I want to be your "one"
But I always seem to come undone
When I see your smiling face
I feel like the world's disgrace.
If only you would take that second glance
If only I could have that chance.
I would love you with all that I am
I would try to be worth a damn.
But at the same time I am so scared
What would happen if you really cared?
What exactly would you see
If you took the time to get to know me?
How could I ever be sure
That I was all you ever deserved?
I want to be more than I am
I don't know if you could understand
That I think you deserve so much more
So what am I here for?
Maybe I should just leave you alone
Hide away and remain unknown.
...The one thing I long for I will not let myself have
I'm scared, I'm nothing, why should I not be sad?
...I can't put myself out there because I am tired of being hurt
EyeThe great eye is a foul sun,Eye5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
piercing all with ubiquitous yellow rays.
Its sharp black ellipse collects,
reaching through the flesh,
measuring the soul's intent,
feeling all we hold dear.
Substantial veins transfer all to the rotten core,
where we are judged,
judged by the eye,
judged by our minds,
judged by all eyes
suspended in the sky,
peering down upon us.
Conscious is the eye,
conscious as we are,
venal as we are,
drifting through our dreams,

between the strings of my guitar,
playing for faceless crowds
invisible in stage light and
of cheap beer and cheaper love

I lost my sight to blinding fever
rising too high to come down
it has to get worse
before it gets better, but it never got
and so we cry for voiceless birds
that fly high
to fall fast
circling frozen earth that buried the last of civilized animals,
and the first of our ancestors
taught to talk
and walk on two legs,
the trained beasts
we slowly became a car crash
broken glass reflecting
(reflecting more broken glass)
the flashing lights
of blue and red
so try again
we'll try again
