in the dark dancer's face,
hands holding the harmony,
shivering safe sanctuary,
enclosed eyes exploding,
Life, Love, Lost!

Please Give Me Chance
They comfort you, what have they done to alert you?
Do they deserve to be beaten and treated painfully?
Did we ever realize that they have the same feeling and deserve a right to healing?
So why do people agree to not allow them to be free?
We kill them everyday for a thrill.
So why do we still laugh at them for that?
Still laugh at their pain when they are in a chain and bleeding for another day.
A day to life, that doesn't have a knife or a price.
I believe that we are naïve.
They never hurt us, only tried to make us feel pride.
Did you ever think that maybe if they could talk they would say they would walk beside us?
Or even ask for another chance, a chance to never glance back.
But instead they are dying and on the ground they are lying, waiting for the sound of love.
Shooting StarShooting Star3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I look into the night sky
The stars, they're so beautiful
So bright, I find myself wondering,
What is the purpose of those unearthly beings?
I look down at my small hands
As the night sky fills up my mind
Suddenly my dreams of being bigger seem so...
But what if?
If I was bigger
If I was more important...
Would I be able to catch one?
I sit staring out the window
Out in the night I see something peculiar
I encounter a shooting star
I shut my eyes and leave my being behind
And to that one falling star
I confide my dreams.
I look down at my hands
They've grown bigger
Calloused with experience.
As I walk out in the night
I encounter a shooting star
Again, with a faint familiarity
I trust my dreams to that star.
It's the same dream.
At that moment I realize with a sudden clarity
Just what stars are.
Leaving behind the other celestial beings
Who are too scared to begin the journey
Too scared to be extraordinary
Just like the rest of the world.
The sadness of leav

Life Is A GiftLife Is A Gift4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Life is a gift
Given by love
Given by sacrifice
God is the God of Love
He created the Earth and the Heavens
He provides for every living creature, even the birds
He keeps us all under one protective hand
When we astray, He comes like a thief in the night and grabs us back
To those who know and see Him, will live the eternal life with Him
Life is a gift
Given by Love
Given by sacrifice
Why take it for granted?
...StoriesLie to me......Stories6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
If I asked you to lie to me,
To tell em the ending without knowing the beginning,
Tell me a story so sweet it hurts my teeth,
So bitter my face cringes,
So hard I cry in pain,
So broken I cut my finger...
Lie to me,
And give me anything...
Tell me you're sorry,
Somethings aren't worth living for,
I need a reason worth dying for.
I need this.
Tell me a lie a thousand times,
I'll make it true all but once.
Lie to me.
With A Brush....With a BrushWith A Brush....3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
With a brush, it is lush
To erase, how can I face?
With this frame, shall come my fame
The canvas shows the color that flows
For them to love; it inspires
Like how wood sparks the fires
As a bird is fragile, so is the heart
When the strokes come forward; come, take part!
Adventure awaits within these lands
Fly with the fairies and dance with Pan
Mountains grow high
They kiss the skies
Along with their might, they see what was might
There are worlds that are unseen
Create them, like a magic bean
They will grow; with love they will
Danger lurks; enchantments arise
Love, tears coincide
With a brush it all begins
With a brush
It all shall remain

I experience the beautiful tragedy
Burning circles in my head
Let them take me anywhere
Anywhere but here
I want to hear lullabies
I want to hear soft sounds
I want to hear something sweet
Let me go to sleep...
Let me go to sleep...
Let me go to sleep...
In my dreams I will be a balloon
And they will let me take to the sky...
Watery Tombs Can't LastWarm waves whisper to wash away,Watery Tombs Can't Last4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
All the troubled thoughts of my day,
Pull me down within your clutch
With your sweet embrace I won't fight much
For nothing else can quite be compare
To the effortless feeling of senses impaired
And nothing stops a wandering mind
Like the rough taste of air, impossible to find
So I'll clasp my eyes and sink away
Every so peacefully making my way
To the soft silky sand while I'll finally sleep
Where the downers of life can no longer seep
And once I feel rested, my sanity regained
I'll climb back out to where I once came
And smile with confusion at all that I see
Sweet chaos above, there will always be
But this chaos, this chaos, I do love it so
A place free of unrest I could never call home
And I'll disappear into the screaming as one
A world that makes sense could never be fun
Pale Blue AfterglowI am buried and broken in a pale heaven;Pale Blue Afterglow6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Fighting for the rest of my life to stay afloat.
I said that I wanted more;
But I run away from it all.
Finish me here
Look in my eyes when you kill me;
You were all I ever wanted.
Nothing seemed to change
But then I saw into you
Saw who you were.
Now, it can be snowing in the middle of the night,
Id rather sleep alone than near you.
Come, and cut me down,
Im tired of your noose.

The reminders of hope
And the keepers of faith
They are the drive behind life
Even if we don't understand it
They keep u sane
Drive us mad
And push us to the edge
Dreams make us
They break us
They consume and control
Dreams are the saddest of things
Cementing the belief
That this reality is all there is
Storm LoverA soft sullen rumble is releasedStorm Lover4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But aggressively it gives me peace
Twisting all that is around
With each breath I feel unbound
This beast is out to steal the night
I listen on in sweet delight
As he carelessly creeps in
He attacks the earth with a spiked grin
Sparks shoot off in all directions
When the two have made connection
And I feel the coming storm
Covering me in a delicious swarm
Of ecstasy that fills my lungs
And trickles slowly down my tongue
So rain, rain, don't go away
Can't you stay another day?
EscapeShivers wake me from my tranceEscape4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Hoping the world can hold me, perchance
But I have long since disappeared
Slipped from a world that leaves my face smeared
With deep charcoal mountains that fall from my eyes
That cut through my smile, my only disguise
So off I go, I softly slip away
Into my imagination without any delay
Where the sun kisses my skin and wind does the same
Every worry I've had is suddenly tamed
There's nothing to do but feel the warm caring embrace
Of a fictional time, in a fictional place
So why should I ever want to leave,
My own piece of paradise and the rainbows I weave?
The Brightest StarThe Brightest Star3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The brightest star is you.
You used to be a dim star, becoming overpowered by sin.
All of those failures turned into stepping stones of success across a long, winding river.
And you took courage and crossed it.
Look where it led you.
It led you to where you are now, this moment, this second;
You succeeded in so much.
No more of that sin is within you.
You're full of light.
A time in in your life, your heart was full of sin.
Now it's filled with love,
And thanks be to God that you are a wonderful person that came into my life to make it better as well.
You make me happier than I can imagine everyday.
You're NOT a failure.
Never doubt or forget that,
Because I believe in you without a doubt in my mind.
You WILL succeed in New York and will be able to pursue those goals.
You just have to believe it yourself.
Like I said before,
You are not a failure.
I love you.

When you pass me by
And land far away?
And what does it say
When I run away
And pretend to be okay?
What is wrong
With catching a smile
From a mountain in the rain?
And what does it mean
If I say I'm okay...
With each passing day...

I don't ever need wings
I hear the melody and my spirit soars
I can't tell up from down
As I'm lost in song
You never need to wake me
From this dreamlike flight
I close my eyes
I take a leap
The music swells
And I'm gone.

Dream StormCrashing waves of tides uncertainDream Storm4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A safe way out, hard to determine
Rocking softly to the violent lullaby
Of an awful twisted rebel cry
That makes my boat tremble in fear
No longer can these weak hands steer
Against the ever growing might
Of a vampire-esque bite
With water long waiting for a meal
A meal of flesh, wood, and steel
I'll rest upon a sea of sand
Never to be again on land
The OceanLet me collect your glistening hairThe Ocean3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
In my own hands
And kiss the dewdrops from your lips
Or go swimming in your eyes
And close the lids
Then quench my thirst upon your tears
Here, by the shore
The seagulls are calling
As they fly away
Your rushing voice washes me
You wave me to a sandy beach
The crushing volume of your words
Displaces my calm
I'm overflowing for you
Far from the shore
The salty winds blowing
As I'm borne away
How I'd like to run with you
Down to the sea
And spread out wide under the sun
Then I'd have to draw you into
The chasm of my arms
And you'd fill me with all you are
In the depths of your eyes
Is the ocean still lovely
From the inside?
