Sick of people
Who worry about me
I don't want them to care
Because I want to be forgotten
Forgotten should I be
I want no one to remember me
When I die
No one should know who I am
Because they would grieve
And I am sick of grief
I don't want to be loved
I don't want to be nice
I just want to be

Keeping me trapped
Keeping me locked

To get away
From this nightmare
But I'm a prisoner

MurdererIt’s so easy to take a life at any given time.Murderer2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But I’m in a good mood…
…so I’ll settle for that spider.
Kill it before it lays eggs.
It’s so easy. Too easy.
Shut the blinds;
Close the door.
You don’t want anyone to see this.
Bring her to her knees. Watch her scream.
What a beautiful scene.
Life is a cruel joke,
Is there a point to all this?
There has to be, right?
He grew up to be the tallest tree
Just to be burned down.

How do I reply?
Whatever, I’ll say something.
Murder these feelings.
They don’t exist if we hide them.
We’re all killers.
Shall we talk about it instead?
CloudsI lay with you on a cloud,Clouds1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Our friends shooting fireworks into the sky
That pierce through both of our hearts
And ignite our eyes, our lips, our skin.
I find your warmth in the darkness of sleep,
The explosions we create in ecstasy
Leaving behind fire and light that warms our cotton ground,
And keeps the sparks in our eyes.
Wasting away hours,
We watch the sun and moon dance.
They never tire of the same motions,
Interconnected through souls, like intertwined hands.
Uncertainty made certain by our adventures in the sky,
I finally understand what beauty is.
Sunlight peaks through open windows,
Caressing love into a soft wake.

The KissThis kiss is amazing, this kiss was divine,The Kiss7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
This kiss was more than any hopes of mine,
I think she's the one, the one that is true,
I think I shall never again be blue,
I hope that she doesn't move away,
I hope for maybe a ring someday,
This kiss was the best thing that happened to me,
This kiss was the best that I can see,
I didn't realize it until almost too late,
I realized I loved her on the first date,
I thought I loved someone else before,
But now, now I realized I could love no one more.

Something making me want to plummet,
My heart was ripped out,
No tears to give when I pout,
See my eyes?
They are finally dry,
I can't cry,
Only I feel pain,
Feeling heartaches that had once came,
No more crys for help I will make,
Only the pain will I take.

excuse yourself into

the phantom pain of subwoofers

makes it seem tragic. the tactile coldness

Fantasy LifeThere is an internal spaceFantasy Life5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where every moment is a story beginning -
A discovery in an attic,
A looming cavern mouth,
A journey across the sea.
A thousand scrapbook moments
With no need for purpose or end
Are strung together, like lights,
Forming a bridge through the dark
And pushing back the borders of what isn't.

I haven't for a while now.
My mind seems displaced,
Like it's wandered too far away.
"I've been having strange dreams lately."
Images of strange creatures dance in my sleep.
I don't know them but I know they are malicious.
What do they want?
"But now you're here and I'll make you feel right at home."
My saviour, my protector.
You'll guard me from this evil.
"Welcome to Raspy Hill."
This is my hell.
And you'll join me.
I'll make sure of it.
"Enjoy your stay."

What if the image isn't just a reflection
But an alternate world?
Perhaps the reason we can't pass through
Is because our alternate self is protecting us from the horrors.
You've stared into one late at night
And seen monsters form and shadows shift.
Or perhaps you haven't seen that.
You might think yourself lucky,
But maybe you're the alternate being
And you're the one protecting your other half.
Ever thought about what that means?
That means you're the one in Hell.
Maybe you'll sleep easy tonight knowing your other self is protecting you.
Or maybe you'll stay up wondering which side of the mirror you're on.

It's either life's greatest blessing
Or Hell's worst curse.
To be trapped in constant chatter,
The endless droning of simple minds
Seems a terrible fate.
But is it any worse
Than being utterly alone,
Never to hear a sound
For as long as you live?
Peaceful, yet ominous.
How long till you break?
