The City of the FacelessI walked through a desert, sand on all sides,The City of the Faceless3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
No water, stricken, barren, destroyed.
But as I stumbled, choking on dust,
I saw two large doors.
They protruded from the sand, fifty feet tall,
With a lock and inscription, calling to all:
ERIS QUOD SUM, ERAM QUOD ES:
I was what you are; you will be what I am.
Slowly, they opened.
The world shook, the monsters let out a roar.
Behind them lay nothingness, yet fulfillment.
I strode through, and awoke in a different place.
There were people all around, just like me,
But they were Faceless.
The Faceless let loose a sad, mournful wail,
The eyes are the windows into the soul,

Her presense, that of an Angel. Her voice, a guiding light.
In everything she does she would try her best. Never giving up and hardworking.
Virtue above all else, supportive to the end. Understanding and forgiving.
Vivid and outstanding, she is exceptional in every way.
Youthful for eternity, Neither her grace or her charm will ever fade.

If this is how it ends, I'd have no regrets...so I said.
I'll remember all the memories we had, you and I...be it sad or happy, I don't want to forget.
In our little spot, with a bench and a swing...we'd always be there, under the Sun smiling.
Hey, do you remember all this? Why are you saying it's raining? It's a bright sunny day!
I understand how you feel.. through that look on your face, and I know you understand mine.
Is it raining? I'm starting to feel it too, under this grand tree we take shelter under.
I wonder if we'll stay like this, or will we lose each

Can you find what true love is

Saw me once before
Waved me into the seat beside you
That first day of school
A year it would be, me being so clueless
Not noticing you right there
Oh you tried
You tried so hard to get me to notice
Smiles on my papers
Volunteering the same place as me
Taking an interest in my hobbies
Always greeting me with that bright smile
But I caught on
And I realized how long you'd been waiting
I didn't wait long to tell you how I felt
I still regret not doing it in person
Though I doubt I would have had the courage
My first confession
My first girlfriend
It's good that you were so patient
You'd have more waiting to do yet

Tell MeTell me,Tell Me8 months ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Does her name still vibrate through your core
On warm, gusty nights
When the lovesick perfume of honeysuckle
Tugs at your un-kissed lips?
Do you see her eyes blinking at you from satellites?
Drinking your reminiscences like rum
Until you don't know which way is up.
Do you feel her heartbeat like a drum, overpowering the sound of your own.
And then, do you realize that your organs were so carelessly sewn together?
Copper WingsLips painted into a sweet, innocent smile,Copper Wings8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Milky-blue eyes reflecting the dying sun.
Plastered fingers curl a lock of copper hair
Behind an ever-listening earlobe.
Worn coats, scarves, woolen gloves,
Strewn carelessly across a firelit rug.
She buries her ivory face in my shivering arm,
Pressing a smile to my goose-pimpled skin.
We huddle together in a cold-haunted mess,
Watching the light slither carelessly
Into a canopy of curly, breathless smoke.
Across the whitened tarmac,
I catch sight of wind-whipped auburn,
As she waves between the passing cars.
A warming smile tugs at my lips,
As I take a baby step forward,

missing what we had
smoke my smoke and drank my beer never forgetting why we're here
took too long, lost my job, day to day living killed my god
and it's all i ever knew
the years they change but most stay the same
so dont tell me that's why you came
the hours pass the angels die
you lost yours and now your mine
that's what the devil said to me i swear
so dont stray to far away
it's been awhile since i could smile
this small town living killed my style
you cant change fate or so they say
now your hear now you must stay
and its all we ever knew

Walking by you
Smiling at you
Trying to get close to you.
Look at them in their shorts
With their cleavage
And remember me
Waiting for you
Thinking about you
Replaying that day
Imagining your arms
Look at those girls
And tell me if you see
A person willing to take a bullet
As willing as me...
Look at me now
And ignore all the fights
Because between the words
I've thrown around
"I love you" are the only three
I've ever meant...

A label read wrongly.
The scream of thought,
I provoke my inner mind.
Drowning in the pleasure
Of reading out the future
And creating my own view
On the events around me.
Though this song is so alone,
So very deep in solitude.
But I'll hum it while I
Drink my tiny imagination
and the beautiful arrangements
Of my crystalline ideals.

La Petite MortDark deep in purple heartLa Petite Mort1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
With red blood that runs
Through vein and vein
With lesser thought in mind
Slow throbbing of the body
And closeness in touch
The brain is out of proportion
To see the stars and planets collide
Touching the dark velvet of the sky
Bring back to me
Inside this heart
Of red blood and aching.
Your storm am I.

screams that you should stay
Stuck within consuming bind,
in such a web you'll flay.
Piece by piece I steal away;
fills the hole in me.
Soon the sun that starts your day
will be a memory.
So do not ask what I think,
lest you taste the truth.
When you toy with such a link,
my feelings are uncouth.

Unpolished and torn
What a beautiful time
To feel so forlorn
Apollo above us
A quite blinding smile
Giving up on the Lord
It seems so futile
The heavens above us
Dotted up in the sky
I lie on the grass
An emerald glade
All the numbness I feel
Yet I sense every blade
A jab on the finger
My arm, slashed and skinned
A battalion of swords
On the sound of the wind
What a wonderful day
Just a bright atmosphere
But I feel so depressed
I lie on the earth
All the clovers I see
Are of four-leaf descent
But all bad luck to me
The dandelions dance

My awareness bursts with the sound running through my brain
It's so cozy, I could stay
Trying to think of a word
Blank out your mind
Trying to make it fit in
And see how it works
And in the end
Toss the word away
And never think of it again
On my table there's an empty frame for a story not written yet
It will never go away
Colors shimmer dark in my view and it doesn't get but darker
I can't think of a better way
Fetch a word again
From the void between your ears
Force it to fit in
Don't care if it works
