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
Watery Tombs Can't LastWarm waves whisper to wash away,Watery Tombs Can't Last5 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
The Brightest StarThe Brightest Star4 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.
Dream StormCrashing waves of tides uncertainDream Storm5 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

to see your eyes reflecting,
pale embers in the cold night.
We listen to the waters lap at the shore,
tearing it down,
the perfect metaphor for you and I.
Remember when we slept here?
We would watch the ships come
in the cold grey of the morning;
waiting for the sky to ignite.
Waiting for the world to die.
you exist in my memory,
and in the arms of your beau.
You lay somewhere far from here,
too far for me to let go.
As the shades of grey blossomed
into vibrant worlds of red and orange
I whispered to you that you were my only one,
and I meant it,
every time I meant it.
It's only you,
or it was...
Times change as people surely change,
and emotions run as dry as desert rivers.
I'm tired of fighting the shadows at night,
screaming at them to stop haunting me.
They almost make me feel as old as I felt when I was young,
young and in love with you.
Here I go,
tossing this note into the ocean,
hoping the sea or the sky will swallow it,
and with it go

Would I overstep those bounds
That we've set without trying?
Would you take my hand
Look me in the eye
And say the same to me?
Three little words that carry so much
That mean everything
And I mean them for you...
Let me stay with you
Caress your cheek
Hold your hand
Taste your lips
I'm so tired of being alone
And now that I'm with you
I hope to never be alone again

You're told all you're life things will be great by now.
The real lesson: don't trust people who tell you what your future will be.

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.

The way she laughed.
The way my arm brushed against hers...
So far gone,
I still remember it all.
I don't remember it the way I experienced it, though,
Now I just remember it the way it really was.
She is so flawed and far from perfect.
Back then, though,
Every flaw was perfect on her.

Call out without a sound,
But is there a point in screaming now?
You are helpless, can't you see?
You lit the match that set this free
So watch the world around you burn
This time it will be your turn
To join the flames as they close in
And feel it overcome your skin
Play with fire, you'll get burned
Those who yell will never learn

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?

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?

the lust of such a moment filling my veins with fire.
O, tell me, Lord! where will this broken trail lead,
if not to the door of Death, then, perhaps, to his dreams;
for is it not true that Death dreams only of life,
of life fulfilled and brought to great fruition?
Knowing this, these words that must be true,
is it not better to walk in the dreams of Death
than it is to walk in the greenest gardens anyplace else?

When you pass me by
And land far away?
And what does it say
When I run away
And pretend to be okay?

From a mountain in the rain?
And what does it mean
If I say I'm okay...
With each passing day...

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.
