Dreams that die..Once I felt important.Dreams that die..6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Special and adored.
The world revolved around me,
In your eyes.
How fleeting is it,
That all good things do end?
No matter how much you try
To avoid it.
It rests on my shoulders,
I feel it like a weight
And you, you are so perfect,
I cannot live up to the pedestal
I was once placed on.
Set up to fail.
Your illusions were magic
I believed. And I fell.
You pulled me in to your web
And wrapped me tight.
I felt love.
I gave all I could.
Time, hours, minutes.
More than I should.
More than I truly had.
But I cared and I wanted you to see that.
I gave what I got.
I knew fairytales were just dreams.
That moments of feeling special, were false.
The efforts once given dissipated.
And you wonder why I cry?
Yet you dont see it.
Dont hear me.
It is me, all through and through.
Im the one to blame.
Im the one at fault.
Dont you see how youve changed?
How the moments of laughter and light
Were once so special to me?

First the idea is formed in your mind
An adventure full of glory
The perfect story
Time to write it you will find
Now you sit to type your tale
The words pour forth like rain
You work hard but still are sane
In this task you will not fail
Suddenly you hit a wall
You know exactly what you wish to write
This writer's block you must fight
From glory your story must not fall
It takes some time but you soon break free
And the words you needed you again can find
The story you write will be one of a kind
Your story's glory you once again see
Finally you finish typing the last word
The last line of your story
In all of its glory
Your exclamation of triumph can be heard
Your next step is to show your family and friends
The praises of your skill they do sing
Their approbation of your story in your ears do ring
Glory to your tale their approval lends
With a happy heart you put your story away
The printed copy you tuck in a file
You shut the drawer with a satisfied smile

As I sit here in the dark.
Where that brief light of happiness
Just beyond my fingertips.
in hope for a dream
That can never be fulfilled.
A history that will never be written,
And a tale that won't ever be told.
A legacy of truth,
Of pain and torment,
Of lust, delight and love
That lingers deep within my heart.
It is empty.
It is hollow.
It is void of sensation
For a simple touch in itself will
Leave it ashen.
Would it be
That a darkness churned
From the strength I do have,
And for a moment,
I can see a hope,
a glimpse of light that teases
just beyond the reach..
But dreams are just that
Imaginary and solitary
For there is naught else
That will taste the flesh as it purifies my bones.
There is naught else,
That bursts within me,
Be stilling to dust
As daylight rises
and darkness completes me,

The deeping twilight silence heard
In the whispers of a half dreamed word,
With new moon in a dreamless sleep
And sun, nostalgic vigil keeps.
The black-red light, a pulsing flood.
The ocean sky, from her virgin blood
That drains a living death, is born-
From the edge of time are softly called,
Two women walking, their sacred feet
On either side of the horizon meet.
One stares with eyes of burnished gold
And round her shapely figure holds
A robe of molten, blinding light,
Her face, in which, is hid from sight.
Each footstep burns an eternal road,
A tuneless song around her flows.
The growing things she once did mind
Have quickly withered, slowly died.
The other weeps from cloudy eyes,
A world of pain in each tear she cries.
Buried in a grey-mist gown,
Her face of steel, once more cast down.
Each footstep is a sodden march,
Her moaning wind is drifting past.
She regards her charges with a shifting frown,
All living things, she slowly drowns.
In the world upon the line,
We, between the tw

where blades cut through innocence,
and I watch the elastic flaps of flesh snap back-
creating beautiful, red, gaping wounds.
Grinning like the mouth of a waterfall-
a deluge of crimson rushes forth,
from the slit of a smile I sliced into skin.
Delicious dreams of killing sprees,
where the only survivor is me,
and finally the world is quiet, serene.
Nightly adventures into masochistic extremes,
ripping the ripening lies out of screaming mouths
yanking out their torturous tongues of deceit.
Oh, how I love to sleep
to let my conscious die for awhile,
and dream my sweet killing dreams.
Once an enemyThe power inside of me surges through my veins.Once an enemy5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
As I stare down upon you, you gently call my name.
One hand on your weapon, one outstretched to me.
Are you not afraid of the beast that you see?
Do you expect us rivals to become friends at last?
To set apart our differences, to throw away the past?
A knight and a dragon cannot share a bond.
We do not agree, so we do not belong.
How can you trust a creature that was sworn to be your enemy?
I am nothing but a monster, a vile fiery fiend.
One that has killed many, the blood stained in my scales.
With jagged claws and giant wings, and teeth as sharp as nails.
You continue to try and change my mind, but it is already set.
I choose to decline your offer, a move that I will regret.
It is better if I am just left alone, for it is of no use.
To attempt to change me from what I am, and kill my spirit too.
My temper is wrapped around my heart, keeping me in place.
As if I were anchored to the ground, tangled up in chains.
My ancestors were murdere

Feels like she'll never win
It's a loosing battle
One that will forever leave her rattled
Her tired eyes..
Merely a slipping disguise
She's outta breath,
Flirting with death
Hand on a razor..
Wishing somebody would save her.

Or find light

In her head.
They tell her to hide,
To cover up every inch...
Hide the she-she is meant to be,
Make herself into...
What should be.
She just can't stand,
How you want her,
To be so fucking perfect.
She doesn't even know,
Whom the person in that reflection is.
She bats her eyelashes,
A pale complexion,
Dotting her face.
Cursing her sleep deprived eyes...
Being somebody she is not.
She keeps running away.
Hiding from the scars that slash her mind,
She's afraid to heal.
Afraid to love,
When it's all she secretly wants;
To be accepted..
She wants to be dared to stand for herself.

To the reaper my soul has been sold
For without you I am nothing
Just crushed flower pedals in the wind
I can't open my eyes
The frost is too heavy
I can't look into the stars and see your face winking back at me anymore
My wings a black sheath are frozen
I can no longer fly in the sky up so high
IT is so cold
Where is the sun?
Guess I am forever cursed to forever live in this frozen wasteland of eternal night
It is so cold

Not with those judging eyes
Oh god, help me stop the voices
The screams of hatred
They ache my healing heart
Oh god please help me
I am so scared
I wish I knew what to do
The voices won't stop
They are so contradicting
One minute they will soothe me
Next they will send me into a whirlwind
I'm so scared
Oh god, please grant me strength
I don't want to keep crying
Damn the tears won't stop
I'm nearly drowning in my own flood
God, please make this all stop
Reaching out my fragile hands I beg thee
Make the scary voices stop
Keep those unwanted eyes off of me
Just for a moment,
Even for a second
So I can have peace.

those flea-infested eggs laid quite eagerly-
that hatch into green silk, wrapped in crystal diamonds

Running From MyselfHow many times have I done this,Running From Myself4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Getting smashed to forget you exist?
Why do my thoughts always end up
Turning into circles, when all
I'm trying to do is draw a line?
It's hard for me, since I don't
Quite know how to speak anymore.
My tongue falls silent when I
Need it the most, to try and
At least talk to you.
All of this intelligence,
This knowledge of the world,
And it's completely useless.
Again, my vocabulary fails me;
Again, my intelligence betrays me.
Still, I guess that it doesn't matter.
After all, you're already gone.
Why can't I accept that fact!?
Maybe it's just me being stubborn,
Or maybe it's just fate telling
Me to turn around and walk away.
Still, I take solace in the red lights,
Hoping that maybe tonight I'll forget;
And never remember.

Mummy wants me to stop talking to him
And when I talk to her about him
She gets mad

Because I tell her he's really nice.
Mummy keeps crying
She takes me to see people.
They keep telling me he's not real
But he is, it's just that they can't see him.
I cry when I get home
And he tries to make me smile.
See, I told you mummy
That he's really nice.

BarrenI've come to miss my soulBarren4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A soul that never dies
It came across the land of blood
And sank into the pain and mud
You tortured me in paradise
I've shared a darker tale
A lust that reeks of ink
It fled into my hidden mind
And proved that there was more to find
You laughed, forbidding me to think
I've come to miss my life
A scream that never ends
It slashed into my day and night
And swore the murderer was right
I won't look for my soul again
VoiceAdam had the voice of an angel. Whenever he sung, the people around him suddenly became enchanted and wanted to hear more of his attractive, melodic voice.Voice4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
He would practice singing in a little studio that his father set up for him, and he never forgot to sing at least one song for the Glory of God. Every time he practiced, he sang to Jesus and he especially liked to sing "Forever".
Every day, Adam took time out of his own schedule to sing to Jesus; he was not ashamed, nor was he shy. He knew that God had given him this gift, the gift of song. He planned to use it until he could no longer sing.
One evening, Adam was walking home from his local Church and he started to sing.
"I'll worship You my God. I'll worship You my God. I love You! I love You!"
The scattered leaves from the trees blew around Adam's feet.
"Forever I will sing. Forever I will be with You. Be with You."
The sunset seemed to stay where it was; it wasn't moving at all.

What beauty do you see when all is dead in me
You say you love me but I don't see how
How can you love a heart so dark and dour
Even you have felt my sting
And I have caused your heart to bleed
Why you stay I am not sure
When my heart is far from pure
I'm afraid you'll die beside me
That I'll drag you under earth
And that your heart so full of kindness
Will drown in my darkness full of hurt

And if you weep,

Your lie has trapped you
behind bars of fire.

I know your kind well.
These teasing looks we share
Are really getting to me.
I itch to read incantations scrawled
across the pages of your bent,

You can see right through me.
You have bewitched me with your stare

There is no other explanation
For why I keep coming back.
Don't you give me that look!

Afraid to love,
Afraid to fall too deep.
I know they're different;
Not all the same,
Yet still I can't help but keep
My heart locked up
Inside my chest
Safe from what lies outside.
One day, maybe
I'll let my love out.
My heart no longer to hide.
