My WifeThe woman I love can shine like the sunMy Wife4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She reminds me of myself all the time
I feel like I am not the only one
Unlike all the others I have to mime
The woman I love loves to make me smile
She insists that I'm pretty like a rose
I wish she would always stay for awhile
Her mind is strong like a river that flows
The woman I love also loves me too
The memories we share we hold so dear
Even though nobody else has a clue
She is the only one I need to hear
This is the woman that I will marry
And her joy is what my heart will carry
SpiritsIn this room the dead still gatherSpirits4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Obtrusive in a reflection I can only see
They mock my seclusion every hour
Forever haunting each gray dream
When the clock strikes witching hour
Awaken I am by disdainful laughter
Cursing them back to Hell's black fire
Yet they stay, forever faithful to their master
Again the sun ascends, vigilant at its post
The darkest hour sneaks inside the day
Sitting, always staring, is an ill begotten ghost
Sipping from a bottle of my finely aged shame
Running, always fleeing, I am hunted like a prize
Craving still the essence of a tainted, tattered soul
Feeding off my spirit even right before my eyes
Hear me puzzle master; I am one piece short of whole
Tears of BloodTears of bloodTears of Blood4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Stream down my face.
I try to hide them
But they spread
Like a plague.
The pain is showing
All over my body.
The redness of blood,
Like a poisoned apple,
Has stained my skin.
My nails are caked
With the forgotten tears
Of those from the past
When I still cried
These tears of blood.
The red sinks into my hair,
Dying it the color of death.
I cannot escape it.
It is always there
Like a drunken tattoo.
Make these stop
I'm drowning in blood
The red sea is up to my chin
If I let out a scream,
I will drown and cease to exist.
Maybe that's the best.
SymphonyWith whispered words we watched the moon explode;Symphony4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Stars lit up like fire,
Captivated by your mouth I did not notice the horizon;
It burned ever on.
The softest water danced between your lashes,
And as you closed your eyes they fell
Onto my skin,
Creating blissful harmony
Broken by a single thought;
So reluctant, my heart cried,
The game of sin was spun.
Burdened with the weight of the world,
I let our symphonies go unsung.
I still believe in youIf all that was left was tonight,I still believe in you4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Would you let it slip by?
Would you forget all the memories
To believe in one lie?
One falsehood that brought you
Down to your knees,
Why is it you trust it still
Just answer me, please!
It may be your scared
And you don't want to forget,
And I may be out of my place
To mention it.
But please don't give up yet
When you're worth so much more.
Your wings torn up now,
But one day you will soar.
They broke you in ways
That I'll never know.
Why not pick up the pieces
And let them go...
I know I'm outside
When you're still in there,
But can't I help be a light
In the darkness you fear?
Don't cry now still leaning
On the ones who broke you.
Don't bite that sore lip,
I'll be here for you!
I know it's not much,
And I can't change your mind.
Just know that I see you
As a treasure divine.
Come close to me, I'll hold you,
Even if we can't touch.
How could I be lying
When I love you so much?

It's crumbling in my chest.
Please stop this pain
Before it consumes me.
My eyes won't stop weeping,
My sobs won't stop coming,
My body won't stop shaking.
I never knew I could feel this way.
I never knew there was someone like this.
Someone who I would cry for.
Someone who could hurt me this way.
I never thought we could be together,
I thought we were just friends.
But when I saw you kissing that girl
I just wanted it all to end.

Let me cling to your shirt
As you sing to me softly.
Hold me while I cry,
And never let me go.

So first of all know I would stand by you when push comes to shove
I want you to know that there is no limit to the things I want to say
You need to know that I would make you fall for me every single day
There is the fact that you alone make me feel like I am a better man
You make me feel like I can be successful in this world without a plan
When I look at your smile I know that the pain of life is really worth it
To you for eternity, my heart and my very soul I have chosen to commit
When I feel your presence the horrors of my mind I can no longer fear
It is because of you my love that this world I see in a way that is more clear
Some say we fall in love only once, I hear your voice and I fall all over again
My love for you is something that is truly impossible for any to restrain
You bring a smile to my face and warm my heart when my mood is crappy
When I am with you absolutely nothing is forced, I am just blissfully

Pounding; resounding your words left behind.
My head won't stop replaying the scenes of your memory.
The way you moved, the way you spoke, that smile that played across your tempting face.
I despise these once cherished trinkets of thought!
My eye is bloodshot from the tears that missed you against my will.
Even if I blink! I see your face.
My hands shake, my stomache is in knots;
I'm relentlessly haunted by you, I want to forget.
I want to be able to run away from you but there's nowhere to run.
You're like a virus: there is no cure.
I'll never get away from you:
You've got me so sick.

Already DeadWhy, oh why, did you give up trying?Already Dead5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You could have told me all those nights you stayed up crying
At this point, it doesn't matter what I've said
Because, by now, it seems like you're already dead
I've tried so hard to give you the world
But you ignored it, and into a tight ball you curled
Away from me, from everyone, you stayed
Hiding, oh what a big mess we've made
How long have I sat here sighing?
Doesn't matter, since you're already dying
Rotting away, bitter at me
For only wanting you to look around and see
They care, dear friend, they really do
Please don't make me have to find you
Dead, alone, and gone from this life
Because I can no longer stand your ongoing strife.

There are just things I have needed to say for so long
I am writing this with the most nervous half-smile
I hope you will find reading this worth your while
I have put on an act for your sake for such a long time
I do not think that feeling like this is much of a crime
I have been thinking about this with some regularity
But it is only recently that I have established any clarity
After some horrible things to which I chose to resort
You brought me back with both comforting and support
After a short time our friendship grew into something more
My faith in humanity you were able to begin to restore
Now we are at such a turbulent point in both our lives
It will be difficult but I hope that our friendship survives
Because everything that you do in a manner that is so adroit
Has made my weakness for you something you could easily exploit

I Will Love YouThere's a certain something in that smileI Will Love You4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In those brown, hazel eyes
You laugh, you speak, you touch
I'm aware of every single thing.
I don't really know you well
Though our lips seem to enjoy each other's company,
You hold my hand and I wait for it:
Those ridiculous butterflies you hear about
They never came.
You can imagine my loss,
As I kissed deeper and desperately.
Searching for what was supposed to be there,
Did you feel it?
My head was agaisnt your chest and your heart was beating
Did you feel my heart beat?
Or, was there a silent thump?
There's so many questions I want to ask you
Though I don't know you really.
Just, please, give me time
Don't see my vacant stare and think there's nothing there
Because there is, there is
I'll find it
And I'll give it to you.
I will love you,
With butterflies, and sugar pies, and all the sweetness you can take
I will feel
Even if I can't.
It happened againI write this piece after taping myself back togetherIt happened again4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The bandages wrapped around me, feel like a tether
I have to wrap them around me in the dead of night
After a battle that I didn't have the strength to fight
The safety that I feel in these walls is only a smattering
That's because this isn't the first time I've taken a battering
Each of the blows soon fade into a blurred but painful flurry
It's reached a point where I can't leave the house without worry
Though nevertheless, each and every one leaves a mark
Some of them are pale, the others are much more dark
This happens and he never shows any form of being contrite
Probably because he's comforted knowing they are out of sight
These living conditions don't show any sign of improvement
So for now I guess I will be left wincing with every movement

Don't turn away.
We need to stay warm,
It's no where near May.
There's ice outside,
And snow falling in sheets.
Maybe we can turn the heat on in the car
And sit on the backseats.
You can hold me,
And I'll tell you a story.
And you'll be half listening,
Instead, watching this morning glory.
You'll smile when I ask
If you were listening at all.
And I'll roll my eyes, playfully,
Then, my name you will call.
I'll look up to you, shivering,
And you'll see how cold I am.
You'll pull me in closer,
"Are you getting warmer, Madame?"
I'll blush and I'll nod,
And snuggle up to you.
You'll kiss me on the cheek, "Good,"
And I'll whisper and, "I love you."
You'll whisper back,
That very same phrase.
I'll smile and hold you close;
Yes, these are how I want to spend my days.

You cut me deep into the bone
You used me as your play toy
Your just like a little boy
You said you weren't like the rest
You said that i was the best
You said a lot of things
And this is what it brings
Pain in my heart
I knew this would happen from the start
You lied to me
And now we can never be
Because of you
and what you do
You cracked my heart in two
When i gave it to you
You say you love me
But that's hard to believe
If you loved me
You wouldn't have done this to me
You broke every promise you made
I wish you would have stayed
Then i wouldn't feel like this
Then it wouldn't be you i miss
I wish things were like they were before
But im not yours anymore
Yet you get mad
When he comforts me when im sad
When he says i have his heart
That i did from the start
You get mad
When he says im beautiful
When he says he wants me
You get mad
because someone else wants me
When you don't
I still love you
But you don't control what i do
neither do i
All i want to do is

Every time I sing our lyrics,
I let it out and cry.
Every time I hum our melody,
I wish to be alone.
Every time I think of you,
my pain is set in stone.
Every time I hear our song,
our memories fill my head.
Evey time I think of fall,
that you won't be there I dread.
But every time I play our lullaby,
I remember that you were there.
So I try my hardest to be strong,
because it's only fair.
Every time I strum our chords,
I remember the fun we had.
So instead of dreading the future,
I try to focus on our past.
But even though I'm strong,
and try my hardest to keep smiling on,
my sorrow is still there.
So don't you think it's only fair?
WorldscapeSometimes I brim with broken half formed truthWorldscape4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Truth I never want to understand
Understand it's more than I can take
So take that weapon from my trembling hand
Hand over, dear, a newly uncapped pen
Pen a letter to the heads of state
State to them that truth has come once more
More so than ever, they will act too late
Late the clock chimes echo in the room
Room for more the one inside this bed
Bedded, trapped in sickness of the mind
Mind you watch, for love will soon be dead
Dead and done the advent of the year
Year round the bells will chime their garbled song
Songbirds flit and come and go at last
Last not least, though they will not last long
Long ago in realms too far to see
See the waves come rolling in and break
Break the news to newborn widows now
Now that their husbands bedded with the lake
Lake shores stretch to destiny unknown
Unknown by all the wise and good and bright
Bright shine the stars on best and worst of men
Men who toil in this, humanity's plight
