Sonnet : The HarlotHer call rings all over the streets of sin,
Echoing seduction and carnal greeds,
Trespassing on the grounds of morals thin,
Offering earthen bliss by earthen deeds,
Curious young lads and gentlemen groomed,
Struck by whims of lust and her beckoning,
With their conscience dead and innocence doomed,
Drown lifelong self worth in moment's sinning,
Her embrace of fake love and false passion,
And the cadenza of her falling breath,
Perfected by routine and profession,
Conceives demons off innocence's death,
A harlot by deed, yet noble by heart,
Burdened by sin's blame, while sinners depart.
Why You?Sometimes I wish I may forget,Why You?3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
All things that I very much regret,
How I fell for you and loved you,
Because I'm hurt, now dying too.
Sometimes, when our eyes meet again,
It brings back memories of pain.
Moments that should have not happened,
Oh, we could have been only friends!
But I think of you all the time,
To repeat all our past somewhat,
To hold you so tight - a grave crime.
I hate my mind for doing that.
Yes, It hurts a lot when I see,
That you'll never again touch me,
That you replaced me for someone,
And for dreaming I was that one.
How I want to have the courage,
To make you

I am innocent
and dealing with it.
(These days I am still bored,

I'm not dealing with it so well either.)
But in my dreams
I am that awkward,

In my dreams I give roses to a strange boy,

the most normal thing in the world
I clean blood off his wrist in the bathroom,

I'm watching that other one

I cannot believe that even though we trusted you,
You could actually do what you've done.
What makes it Infinitely, worse is that,
Even after seeing how much pain you have caused,
All you have to say is, "Oh shit, sorry."
I cannot believe that I considered you a friend.
Or rather, I cannot believe someone I've looked up to,
Actually admired and respected could do that.
She is so important to me.
My closest friend, one of my oldest companions.
You have no idea how much I want to hurt you,
To feel your blood run hot over my hands

The pressure was too much for me to handle
And my heartbeat slowed and dulled
They were tied around my ankles
They refused to let me go
So I let them drag me further
Into the murky depths below
The further the surface grew
The closer death came near
And no matter how much I swam
The water wouldn't disappear
Everything was blurry
But I took in all I could
I was stuck inside this world
Where calmly time had stood
It was a nice trip down
It may have been a long descend

Today was Tuesday

Maybe it didn't really matter. Things fall apart anyway.
It was a quiet room
Where they sat
Hearing Tick Tocks
Bells and Whistles
And there they were
His and Hers.
He gazed at the flowers in front of them
Sinking in the image of innocence and untouched beauty
A mirror image of yesteryears and yesterdays
It dawned on him then, that he only had to look at them.
He didn't need to do anything else
Everything they had was ruined anyway.
Certainty washed over the two
A mutual understanding

Doctors rushing, knowing it's too late
Holds her hand, says he loves her
Flatline ringing in his head
Tears fall, splashing on her lifeless body
Harsh lights, cold, blinding
Driving home, thinking of her
Empty house, lonely silence
Agony, heartwrenching pain
The closet, hidden deep inside
Searching, frantically searching
Grab it, load it, walk to the nightstand
Her smiling face, captured in photograph
Closed eyes, don't think
Next to his head, hands shaking
Deep breath, in, out, in, out
Look at her face one last time
Smile, say they'll be together soon
Pull the trigger, collapse, never to ri

You ate it slowly, savoring every bite.
Once my heart was safely in your stomach,
and told me that it was delicious.
I wanted to yell and scream and be furious,
you never smile.
So instead I said,

I am a woman, seeking life on the moon,
Bored with the emptiness of her messy room
Makeshift moments as strong as a breeze.

For us to think in the cherry cream of iris clouds,
Puffy and welcoming everywhere you look, every time,
You look me in the eyes.

And the cherries. The strawberries of the dew beads,
Spread along our feet coating our empty souls fully.
Ready to dine with happiness of apples and pears,
As we prance around the orchard trees. This world,
Can never get old, with you here with me.
The sun gives way, and the sweetness of us stays,
Blushing roses upon our young cheeks. soft hands,
Intertwine as we jump into a pond of kiwi fruit. pucker,

Rooted to the frozen ground
"I'm all alone", she lamented
As she looked around
It only started as one
They said it would do no harm
But the axe just kept on swinging
And the forest lost its charm
Something this wise old tree had never seen
Greed like a hunger never sated
Unable to bid them stop
So she just nervously waited
Factories stood where trees once thrived
Underneath smoke-smothered stars
The animals all fled their homes
As they heard the roaring cars
At last when no more trees were left
Save for the eldest one
They came to her with hatchets high
Underneath the blackened sun
