The Wisdom in IfsIf you think it is impossible,The Wisdom in Ifs5 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 Wish5 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
SacrificeOne drop,Sacrifice5 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
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 mirrorMirror5 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
Once Believed in LoveShe burns pagesOnce Believed in Love5 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

You can hear

under the moon as we sat together
You can feel

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...
Silence and heartbreakYou know how girls crySilence and heartbreak5 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
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
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
Steal a momentTo know, though even if it only wasSteal a moment5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
for but an instant of your time,
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.
My SapphireThe moon reflects our shadow,My Sapphire5 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
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 you5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Only YouI miss youOnly You5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So much more than I should
And I hate it
You don't realize just how much you saved me
You brought me out of darkness,
Making me able to see the light again
There will always be a part of you with me
And I hate it
I don't want it
It just brings back memories
And I can't stand those right now
It's too hard
Even though it's been a few months...
I thought you were different,
That you were special,
But I guess that was just a distant hope
A wish on a shooting star
Shooting stars are one in a million,
I guess that's why I haven't seen one yet
Maybe when I do,
I'll finally be over you
Maybe a major realization will come over me
When I figure out that I don't need you
But it won't come
And it's unfortunate
I wish I could believe what I tell myself
That you're not worth it
That I should move on,
But I can't
I'm a hopeless dreamer
And I hate it
My friends don't get it
That something that can happen years ago,
Will stay with me for eternity
It doesn't matter what it is,

Let it tell a story

Break the calmness with a simple touch

Synthetic hair in elastic bands
That strain the violet strings.
Splintered breasts over wire ribs,
Moulded with such useless pottery.
Protruding legs of cracked porcelain,
Threading fractures crisscrossed
Over the hips, like shaken buttermilk.
Stomach bloated thick and wide,
The china weakened with the effort
Of encasing what's within.
But beneath mutilated crockery
There is passion and pessimism;
Lungs, slippery wet and writhing for breath,
Blood pumping smooth as hearts,
Guts as soft as feathery gore.
I am alive.
LiveI wish I could turn back the time,Live5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
moments when I can sit forever with you
Waiting for a train that never showed up
It was fine, I did not mind
as long as you were there for me
Your hand in mine,
my head on your shoulder
I could wait there forever
Years were felt like seconds,
bitter turned into sweet,
rain was just another bright day for us
But what can we say
if fate has spoken its will?
The train finally arrived
and this will be our last glance
Goodbye my dear
Let us leave with head straight up
full of dignity and the remaining of joy
that we shared in that station
This is not the end,
just another adventure to experience

Her and meShe just liked me, yet I loved her.Her and me5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
She just missed me, yet I felt lost without her.
She just wanted to see me, yet I longed for her touch.
I don't understand how I couldn't come to see; it was just the same as always, it would never be.
That's how it turns out every time, mind you. The second drawer is what I get, the best friend one.
And I know she didn't mean for us to end up like this, but just like that first kiss it's something that can't be undone.
Lullaby for an illusionWhen you'll feel the cold wings of the airLullaby for an illusion5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Caressing joyful dew drops on your hair
When your sight will get free...
In a wild blink of rebelious glee...
In a time of unreal memories, you'll see
The places our surreal worlds have built
Mountains, lakes, trees
Shrouded by a sweet, divine wind.
When your heart will see
Birds flying freely, endlessly...
Decomposed on the sunset's hue
Then you'll know and feel
My hands longing to reach you
The whispers of a pure truth:
"My blue torment of my youth...
In silence, memories and distance,
Upon the ceiling of my imagination,
I'll always be with you"

i decided sometime by mid-morning all i wanted was for you to encircle me and whisper gentle words across my shoulder that would dip around my lower-back and find home in my chest.
i envisioned cardiac surgeons tangling their hands in my thoracic cavity and struggling to find my heart, but only coming back to an empty waiting room with scattered slips of paper detailing a midnight heist.
as i mouthed words scratched into a bathroom stall, i hoped each consonant would tumble from my mouth and emit cheap florescence that would guide me to starlight where you once danced along a chemical wasteland in the stratosphere.

Borrowed ParadiseWe chase each other in a wild dance of elusion.Borrowed Paradise5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We flit throughout the trees
and my heart flutters in my chest.
Skimming through the air,
not touching the ground,
but not quite flying,
just moving too fast too feel anything but each other.
You float away from me,
daring me to follow.
I hear your melodic laughter
floating in the breeze that smells
like blossoming dogwood,
and it makes me smile to myself.
It gives you away.
I dash after the sound
and find you at the
edge of a crystalline pond,
the water shines like
a polished stone of turquoise.
You call me to your side and we sit,
toes in the glass,
looking over the realm of my borrowed paradise:
the immense fields of flowering, never-wilting buds,
the unreal, ark-like array of animals,
the temporary nirvana of the summer breeze,
the perfection that is you.
Of course, none of this can really be mine,
except when my mind relaxes
and I fall into the deepest relapses of dreaming.
But for now, I enjoy every single sweet moment of it.

I remember us sitting on the porch eating your moms home made cookies and drinking lemonade. Suddenly starting to laugh at nothing at all.
I remember me coming out of my house with a soccer ball to see you already there net set up and all.
I remember sneaking in to your older brothers room to play video games
I remember all the adults saying i can't have a best friends who's male since I'm female (how we showed them)
I remember your face when you parents said you were moving , leaving.
I remember your face on the car window tears running down your cheeks.
I remember your curly blond hair and bright blue eyes.
I remember you so clearly,
My first friend
My next door neighbor
My first crush.
