The Wisdom in IfsIf you think it is impossible,The Wisdom in Ifs6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
then it will be impossible for you
If there is a will,
there is a way
If someone can take on a difficult task,
why can't you do the same?
If there is a way to be reasonable,
then there is no need to be unreasonable
If no one can do the same thing as the other,
then there is no need to be just like them
If you can think positively,
then there is no need to be prejudiced
If there is a chance,
why aren't you gambling a little with it?
If you are in a dead end,
will you just sit there and wait for what will happen next?
If you can look the path in front of you,
there is no need to look the steps behind us
If you can see the depth of the sky,
why do you only see the

I WishFelt just like yesterdayI Wish6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When I walked through that gate
Learned to be a human for the first time
Without any burden on my white pure heart
To think about for the next day
I could see it slowly
Yes, those dark clouds in front of me
I could hear the thunder
And the wind blew my hair
I knew they will come for me at the end
The clock started to move
That moment finally came to me
Hit me hard to the ground
I was scared and desperate for a door
"Someone help me!" I shouted to the sky
I hid behind a rock
From those horrible nightmares that haunted me
I closed my heart and waited on the dark
For many years on sadness inside me
I often wished to the sky
To take me back to that moment
Be a happy person on the frame
Not the sad person who looked it with tears on her eyes
I wish I could turn the time back
I couldn't ask for such a thing
But I could not give up yet
Gave up on those sweet memories of mine
I stepped out from the shadow
And welcomed to the bright scape
Felt the warm air on my face
The ReaperYou can run from my hatchetThe Reaper5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Run, run as fast as wind
Never try to look back
for you will not enjoy
what you see there
You can hide from my sight
Look for a good hiding place,
because it wont be fun
to hunt without a challenge
You can ask
for help by others
Do find a loyal friend
if you do not want to find him
backstabbing you in the end
But you can never win this game
There is no rules,
it's just between the predator and prey
So you better run now
for I'm the Reaper
MirrorI looked through a mirrorMirror6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
and wish it never happened
Do you know what I see
When I stare at my reflection?
I put a big smile on the lips,
but she did not look happy at all
Bit her lips as if she choking back a painful scream
Joyful sparkled in my eyes,
but there is only misery beneath
Tears almost dropped from her hazelnuts diamond
I stood still in pride, dignity, and bravery;
but there's only a person on the corner
Head bowed, does not want to stand up
My lips formed Yes,
but the woman on the mirror shook her head
and said No
Because I can never lie to the mirror,
nor can I to myself
Louder Than A RiotThere's a riot in my headLouder Than A Riot6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And it screams all night
Containing freedom fighters
And rebels full of spite.
I try to ignore it
And get some sleep
But the roar of the crowd
Is louder than me.
There's buildings on fire
And fighting in the streets.
I witness all this mayhem
In the unbearable heat.
There is no way to ignore it,
No point of going to sleep.
The crowds shouts are loud
And they're closing in on me.
I stand on a blazing car,
Watching this chaos.
I tell them not to fight,
Because they have already lost.
Now I don't need to ignore it
And I can go to sleep.
Sure, the roars of the crowd are loud,
But not as loud as me.
SacrificeOne drop,Sacrifice6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The rain swept my face
as I lay on the cold ground,
defeated to my last breath
It was done, I lost the battle
Crowds already decided which side they will stand now
Facing me as they stand aside to the winner
I closed my eyes once, and twice
and found myself alone in the dark, abandoned
I thought I had prepared myself well
for my lost today
But it was not enough
It felt hurt, almost couldn't bare it inside me
I closed my eyes once more,
hoped that the rain would drown me
But then I laughed at myself hardly,
despite the copper flavor on my lips
This is not my match
Why should I mourn my lost when I am not?
I have lost this game
But I won in the real battle
That is the only thing I care
For I finally knew what sacrifice means now
Once Believed in LoveShe burns pagesOnce Believed in Love6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To feel alive
And watch her words
Dance in the flames
She clings to his jacket
Each and every night
Since he left
Hoping to catch a whiff
Of the Old Spice scent
She loved so much
She spills her heart out
In poetry and tears
Wondering why she
Still wastes them on him
She wears a mask
Full of happiness
Secretly dying a bit more inside
Since the day he walked out
She once believed in love
But that was long ago
When silver lockets and pinky promises
Meant something more

My SapphireThe moon reflects our shadow,My Sapphire6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
as we sit on the edge of the river
All is quiet, as if we could control the time ourselves
for neither of us wants to break the moment
I can smell the sweetness of jasmine
blown by the soft winds around us
The water flows peacefully beneath our feet,
portraying the stars floating on deep blue ocean of the night
They sound like music to our ears tonight
Do not let your hand leave mine, whispered I
The hand you used to pull me up with
so I can stand by side next to my dearest
Challenge the time
as we are moving on together
Do not take your eyes off of me, begged he
The sweet blue eyes that captured his heart until now
Comfort him with a charming blaze
beneath those sapphires
as if there were eternal joy
Do not walk away from my side, pray us
For both of us cannot be separated
from our reflection
Valentine will not be the same
without roses and chocolate,
nor am I without you

the word I love you
at the bottom of the letters
that appeared in your desk back then
You can hear
the word I love you
whispered by me in your ear
under the moon as we sat together
You can feel
the word I love you
when our bond was sealed
under the majestic bells
you may not hear it again
for that's what I do
Every day, every hour
every breath that I take
I am loving you
forever and always...
Moon SonataI stood by myselfMoon Sonata5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
leaned on the edge of the window
With the guitar and lonely cloud
who dreamt for his diamond of the night
Would this moment be over soon
let the wind blow it
the same as the previous nights
I ignored the star's smile
for I was not singing for her
These notes were still free
unbound by my thoughts and feelings
But the time was over
as your shadow hugged me tenderly
Closing the window behind my back
and took this soul out for a joy
My guitar will sing
for you my dearest

Silence and heartbreakYou know how girls crySilence and heartbreak6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When boys break their hearts?
There's a reason for it all.
Is it because of the words?
We cry because of the deathly silence
Of our fingers no longer pressing down
On those smooth, flat, plastic buttons
To form words,
Literate or otherwise.
We fake our smiles
All the while the boy is in the same room,
Our tears are our own,
As is our hearts,
But we put everything on the line,
Just to see him smile.
To make him happy,
even if it is for a day.
Even if we have just been played
Needing to see youAnother night of waking with a scream from a once again never ending nightmare I don't even know what it is this time. So much time has seemed to passed but it seems you're still haunting every darkened corner of my mind. I lean over the side of my bed reaching for my phone it's just texts from the usual Erica, Ryan, Paloma nothing new here but once again I scroll through my phone and come across your number I always want to call it or send you a message but what would I even say if I did? So instead I just let my phone and do its usual reset. Piece of crap does that every time it falls but this time if took its self right off the charger. I get up and bend over searching for the end of the charger and go to plug it back in when a strong grasp on my arm stops me, "look at me!?" I hear a loud shout then fall back gasping and scooting into the bed frame pulling my legs close.Needing to see you6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

to swallow the stars.one day,to swallow the stars.6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
they will set fire to this body,
but it will not burn,
for there is something
brighter and more lovely
than the ashes of my bones,
those words are written
in the hand of the dipper,
the face of the lion,
the tail of the scorpion,
strapped to the ceiling
above a shattering planet.
but when skies turn to oceans
and oceans to skies,
and Venus ignites
in the hills of God's eyes,
will i open my mind
to the very blood of life?
lightning will flicker across my skin
and rain will stream from my lips,
and the east will crack and blister
away from the west,
and the ocean will give way
to fire and earth
and love and loss,
for there is nothing greater
than the bow of the hunter.

that in that second quickly passed
I had so occupied your mind.
And in your thoughts had stolen fey
to take my rightful chosen place.
I hope that when that moment came
a smile crept across your face.

Like an ice sculpture,
Carved beautifully into existence.
Your eyes remain closed.
I wait for you to say hello,
Like a rag doll lying on the bed,
Waiting for its owner to return.
But they're not coming back.
As much as I wish they were,
They're not coming back.
Music Was her Lifelinewrapped in broken wings tinged with black,Music Was her Lifeline6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
she chose darkness, didn't believe she could go back.
she thought that once there was blood spilled
all her dreams would be left, unfulfilled.
She huddled under her warm covers at night,
The only place she could cry out of sight.
Everyday she wore a mask of strength,
stopping the tears not a moment to late.
Every night when she gave in and began to weep,
All she could do was sing herself to sleep.
It was the only place she truly felt secure,
as she sang in a voice that was sweet and pure.
As the lyrics began to work there magic,
suddenly, things weren't so tragic.
She could almost believe that things would be okay,
that the world might be more than just black and gray.
Music became her lifeline, the only thing that kept her trying,
it was a want, a need, the only thing that could stop the crying.
Prayers to the NightHave you ever hopedPrayers to the Night5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
for the eternity of the night?
Where your worries
blown by west wind requiem
to the endless ocean of hope
Leave nothing but memories without your tears
Or the sadness of heart
melting on the petal of white rose
Sit beside the brokenhearted soul
because she will always be there for you
When the gall of life
replaced by dreams of a night angel
Erase the line between reality and fantasy
and whisper your hope to the shooting star
Look through the crystal of night
whose glow tells us a story
Prayers to the moon
for not going away from your side
The One From NoneTime was running so fast,The One From None5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
like dawn turns dusk by a blink of eyes
Do you remember that day?
When you offered me your hand
for the first time
I welcomed them with joy and honor
and the first chapter had begun
There had never been my laugh,
nor my tears,
without your warm hug comforting me
There was no such a perfect thing,
yet we could create it
for the perfect shadow of two was better than one
The time had come,
when we should let our hands go
for there would be another hand
waiting for us
under the majestic clang of bell
It was the time to move on,
for a new story to be written
on the next sweet chapter
There is no story
without a good ending
And we have had that in ours
Do not shed your tears,
grab my hand for the last time instead
There is nothing lasts forever, they said
But let this red string in our hands
be the one from none
Let us keep walking
and greet that warm blissful light
Where our friendship
will last forever
Summer SimplicityAlready in shorts and bright colored tees,Summer Simplicity6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Run up the stairs to the house with youthful ease.
Drop the schoolwork in the trash it doesn't really matter,
I won't be going back to school until two months after.
Time to buy watermelon and tons of ice cream,
Driving mom crazy when she trips on rinds and seeds.
Run towards the ocean and transform into a fish,
Find a starfish in the sand and make a special wish.
Sunburn on my nose but I don't really care,
Won't be seeing the age spots for another fifty years.
Got sand in my bathing suit and in my ears,
Grandma says the ocean is made of a billion angel tears.
Make new friends on the shore and promise letters all the time,
Memories of their names forgotten when summer hits its prime.
A cute boy with a stick draws both our initials in a heart,
He is the love of my life until I remember boys laugh at all their farts.
Summer is now over, the bathing suit goes back inside the drawer,
The bright sun and sandcastles will fade when the rain begins to
