The GirlShe lives in a fantasy world in her mindThe Girl9 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
where life is so easy and everything's fine
She knows she can't stay there, but she sure as hell tries
It's better than facing her own web of lies
She hides from her problems and runs from her fears
She drowns herself every night in her tears
Some call her a coward, some call her insane,
I'd like to see them take one half of her pain
She runs away,
not knowing which way to go
She tries so hard,
but she just can't let go
And all of her lies
are getting harder to hide
And nobody knows...
That she's dying inside
She knows that suicide isn't the way,
though she thinks of it at least once every day.
Too proud and afraid to face her own mistakes,
She just hates herself more with every heart she breaks.
She runs away,
not knowing which way to go
She tries so hard,
but she just can't let go
And all of her lies
are getting harder to hide
And nobody knows...
That she's dying inside.
These thoughts just fill her head
She thinks she's better off dead

I want you to turn away, ignore me for a while…
I hear them talking about me, I know what they say
That I haven't a heart, that I drove them and her away
So maybe I'm lost, and I've no clue s'what to do
One thing I do know, I won't ever need you…
I don't have time for lectures; I need to pay my dues
There's things I must be doing, and I don't have time for you
So step out of my way, learn to let me pass
In the end it's all the same, you'll be one of my past
It's not like I'm lonely, or bored, or confused
I'm just sick of her games, of feeling so used
I don't quite know how, and I'm not quite sure when
I'll lower my shields, and learn to trust again…
I know I'm missing something, that I'm somehow incomplete
As I wander down the middle of the empty, barren street
But I will not ask directions, for I need to find my way
Back to where I'm welcomed, back to someplace I can stay…

When you do something because your gut tells you to
When you do something for the love of doing it
When you do something with no monetary goals.
is When it doesn’t matter how many times you talk to someone,
Every time you do it again, it’s a new, exciting, experience
When you do your job without ever having to work
When you can look in the mirror and feel pride without vanity
When a smile is on your face and you don’t know how it got there.
The state of being when you
do what you Love, and Love what you Do;
have Love and Passion
Heavy Metal Is The Law --I live in metal.Heavy Metal Is The Law --7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I die in metal.
My bones are made of steel.
I am a metal demon,
A dragon of the rock,
A warrior of alternativity.
I live by the law of metal.
The blood of vikings flows through my veins.
Like my fore fathers I was born to inflict pain.
Heavy metal can't be beaten by anything,
But only because of us;
We must all be willing to die for metal.
Heavy metal is the law.
The Spacer's SongI see infinity lying at my fingertipsThe Spacer's Song5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
When the moon rises and the stars quip
In their speechless tongue,
Measured in nanometers and wrung
From the union of basic simplicity,
The language of our complicity
In mysteries billions of times
Beyond our scale and sublime
Before our minds ever existed:
We are small, yet we persisted
In walking out of ourselves
Into foreign gravities, to delve
Deeper into the words stars shine
Into our eyes and trace their lines
Back to the beginning, so that one day
We may see a foreign sunrise and say
"It's beautiful" in the company
Of others from another place, and finally
Know why everything came to be.
I don't understand the words reaching me,
But trusting the possibilities of their meaning
I continue in observing the sky and freeing
My fellows from the surly bonds of Earth;
For their meaning I'll give all I'm worth.
Take a lookLook me in the eye and deny it.Take a look4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Go on and try it.
Search my eyes.
Look long and deep.
search the shadows as the creep
across the dark recesses
because anyone's guess is
as good as mine
when they ask me why.
Search the sunbeams,
and the broken dreams.
Sift through the pieces
Left lying in the creases
of the folds across my mind field.
Watch your step.
It's a long way down
Look deeper inside
Each little cranny I used to hide
Each fortress and parapet
Way down as deep as you can get
in castles and moats
and little sail boats
skipping across the bay.
Look in my eyes and say
Because it's all there
and I don't care
if it all breaks and tears
and the tears roll free
and send me sinking back in misery.
Because this is my chance
someone asked me to dance and I'll not say no
so on I go,
up to the moon
never to come back down again.
So I ask you to look inside
I've got nothing to hide anymore.
So look me in the eye and deny it
For NiamoWe were tangled together like Christmas lights.For Niamo8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You laced your hand in mine
and I watched the morning sun while you slept in my arms.
I heard you gently breathing.
It lifted from your lips like a contented sigh from the kiss of sleep
and I reveled in the warmth of your body against mine.
But I dared not close my eyes
I feared the cruel trick of dreams' illusions
and held you all the closer lest you be gone when I awoke.
After all, when your dreams come true
what then are left but the nightmares of loosing what you have
and the pain of watching them go?
By and by exhaustion took me from my vigil
and I saw you dying in my arms begging to be saved
asking why I had failed you.
With a start I woke fearing you'd be gone,
just another figment of a love starved mind,
but you held me and told me it was just a dream.
And in that moment I understood.
For the first time
I was not alone.
The DressOver the years, people have gone to truly extraordinary lengths in pursuit of fashion. A catalog of peculiar gowns would fill several volumes, even without getting into bizarre hats, wigs, gloves, codpieces, shoes, eyeglasses, and all manner of other demented accessories, and I will not so tax the reader except to mention a few highlights.The Dress6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Dresses of strange materials are not uncommon. Among the oddest were the mycorrhiza gown of Milicent von Pratt, a wrap of finest fungal threads. This sensational outfit required almost two weeks to put on, requiring Lady von Pratt to paint herself with an agar and compost growth medium and lay prone in a fungal bed for most of that time. It was only worn once, and deteriorated significantly during the course of the evening, requiring her ladyship to retire quickly from the entertainments.
And then there was the finchbone dress worn by the Dowager Duchess of Eastmarch, made from the tiny skeletons of nearly a thousand finches, carefully wrapped and hu
LoveLove is upLove8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Love is down
Love is going through
When you want to go round
"Love is never having to say you're sorry"
But you say it anyway
Love is all those secret smiles
When there's nothing more to say
Love is having scars on your feet
From wearing the shoes they bought you
Love is listening to 'I love you's
And knowing every word is true
Love is writing silly poems
Exactly like this
And love is not actually knowing
Exactly what love is

The Irony of FearThe Irony of Fear2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
What if my heart held no fear? What if my mind questioned nothing? What if my soul belonged to apathy? Then I would not be human.What if I had no faith? What if I believed in nothing? What if 'what if?' Was nothing more than a thought that crossed the mind that questions nothing,The fearless heart and apathetic soul? Then paradox would overtake me. I fear for I am human, a man with a caring heart and a burdened soul. Whose faith is tested by the second, because belief is what drives the ceaseless 'what if' that in turn fuels the faith of what I most believe in...improvised curiosity, established free will, and a progressivist, artistic, scientist that I call my creator.

Living in DreamsLately it seems I live in two worldsLiving in Dreams8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
One of dreams, the other reality.
One has you by my side, day and night
The other is making me wait.
I dream of you in faded gray
so close and yet so far away
The days go by, as do the nights
slowly bringing me closer to you
But not fast enough,
as I'm sure you'd agree.
The moonlight dances in your eyes
like incandescent fireflies
Yearning for your touch
Longing for your embrace
I wait with guarded anticipation
for the day when both are mine.
Such joy and pleasure do we find
when joined in body, soul, and mind
We paint time on feathered wings,
hoping that it may be inspired to take flight
bringing the day of our meeting ever nearer to reality.
Our efforts are in vain, as we well know
Yet anything to more quickly close this distance between us
is certainly worth trying.
Sweet nothings dance on fingertips
as we've found better use for lips
Until then, I will keep waiting
since time refuses to move any faster.

And somehow I cant help but feel
that your feelings for him can not be real
I cant take it much longer
Why do you find shelter in my arms
but still fall for his asinine charms?
Cant you hear my heart breaking?
But most likely its better off this way.
What is it youd have me say?
As if I could while shaking
So it will remain unsaid
save all the lies that youve been fed
friend to you Ill be.
Yet maybe youll see the light,
maybe Ill give up this fight,
I hope one day youll see
See me standing by your side
while all this time I try to bide

You were tired
With your life
To have some fun?
Seducing you with my eyes
And if you get real bored
I'll introduce you
To some of my close friends
And Miss Hash
But before we begin
Let me say one thing
We will make you our slave
We have sent men
Much stronger than you
To an early grave
Still want to take us on?
You will need lots of money
As I'm sure you've heard
For my dear
I'm much more expensive
You'll start inhaling me
And my sweet perfume
Will soon take over your senses
And you will take me
Into your arms
And the feeling
Of me deep in your veins
Will nearly drive you insane
Then you'll want more and more
And you'll turn into something
Vile and corrupt
As you kill and steal
To pay for my narcotic charm
And you will only feel
When I'm in your arms
Then the day will come
When you will realize
The monster you've become
And you swear
To leave me alone
And I,sweetly smiling

A thunderous roaring of hooves and wild cheers shook the ancient stonework and columns of the starlit colosseum. The scene was alive, more alive than it had been in ages, perhaps in all the years and centuries since the first note was ever played in its heart. Everypony who was anypony was there, hollering and stamping with wild abandon as if to outdo each other. Their shouts and adulations were cast back and forth across the grand open space, where a regal figure was making her way towards the lonely player at the center of all the attention. Such was the din and clamor that the young princess of the moon, smiling brilliantly as she stopped and turned to lift a hoof at the audience, found it hard to make herself heard.
"We believe" She stopped and waited a moment, but the riot of cheers continued unabated. Luna smiled at the crowd, then down at the lone unicorn who looked decidedly uncomfortable in her position next t

Dusk Shine was backed into a corner, surrounded by five ponies who used to be his friends. Their faces were contorted in anger as they shouted at him.
"I'll never forgive you for this!" One yelled, nearly striking Dusk with his hoof. He tried to apologize, but they just wouldn't listen! They were closing in on him now, preparing to wreak vengeance on the frightened unicorn. Before they struck, the pink one spoke.
"Dusk! Breakfast is ready!"
Dusk Shine awoke with a jolt. He opened his eyes, wincing as they adjusted to the sunlight, and let out a breath of relief - only a nightmare.
"I'll get it in a moment..." he groggily said, standing up. Dusk shook his mane out and walked to where Bubble Berry was serving breakfast. He had prepared a decent spread of berries, hay, and oats for the group to enjoy, and was happily handing it out to them.
"Thanks a bunch, sugarcube," Applejack said, grabbing a bowl full of food.

Anypony, that is, save for a certain grey pegasus, who was slowly being consumed by her own anxiety.
Ditzy trudged silently toward the front doors of Equestria Speedy Shipping Services. She opted not to fly for once; her distracted state of mind combined with her already poor vision had led her to several aerial accidents this morning alone, leading to a few hundred bits of property damage, and a splitting headache for the pegasus.
Ditzy couldn't understand what was holding her back anymore; a whole month had passed since Breeze had visited for dinner, yet the mare still hadn't told Dinky the truth about her job.

There were groups of ponies, mostly colts and fillies, wandering around the town just to look at the colorful carnage. Some of the buildings' owners stood stunned and staring at the eyesore that their business or home had become. Some had hiked up their tails and set right to work scrubbing the walls or repainting. The hardware stores were quickly selling out of paint and cleaning supplies.
The Mayor had taken one look at the clashing argyle that now coated the town hall and had fainted dead away. They were carrying her off on a stretcher to Ponyville Urgent Care, half conscious and muttering to herself about playing tennis with a giant blancmange.

"The others will want to know you're up." Fluttershy said. Trixie glanced down at the floor.
"Will they really care?"
"They're my friends too." Fluttershy responded. Trixie nodded, understanding what she meant.
"Shall we... go out?" Trixie asked. Fluttershy paused.
"Are you...are you sure? They could come..."
"Trixie has healed excellently under such adept care." she smiled at Fluttershy, who blushed slightly in response. "Besides," Trixie said softly, "she promises not to exert herself. She doesn't want to spend a single day more bedridden."
"Okay. A day out would be...nice." Fluttershy smiled. Trixie nodded and waited as Fluttershy cleaned up breakfast. They made their way to the door. That same rabbit
