MemoryI tripped over your memory todayMemory5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It haunts the ground I walk on
I found myself falling into open arms
Remembered your voice as it called my name
I walked into a wall today
Pressed my nose against the glass
I remember revolving doors
And how you stopped one in its tracks
I fell down the stairs today
And nearly twisted my left knee
And I remember how all the times you loved me
You never saw me hurt
I paced around my room today
Remembering our first phone call
My voice still shaking, I couldnt sleep
Small things like that may never change
I found myself a gift today
Remembering how little you gave me
And how so little meant so much
I slid it on my pinkie, one finger from where its meant to be
A memory well never have
A birthstone ring of mine and yours
Little diamonds, little stones
I turn it to the side, read the small engraving
In Loving Memory,
A place youll always be.
StandI've walked through the fires of hell and back,Stand3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I've pushed my body to the limit and still I walk,
I don't break,
I don't fall,
I've bled the blood out of my body and still I live,
My hands have been bruised and bloodied but still I touch,
I've been to the brink of death and came back,
I've had my bones broken and my mouth reset,
I don't break,
I don't fall,
I've been run over and picked on and still I crawl,
I've cried until tears don't fall,
As I walk through the fires of hell again,
And I find myself along the way,
I don't break,
I don't fall.

The part when the tables begin to get turned.
The part when all the pain you've caused comes back to you...
The part when you are

Where is doesnt even matter the words you try to s a y.
In the end This feeling just never goes a w a y.
When all you want is for him to willingly s t a y.
The aching feeling you get,
Just before you reach the e n d.
You try to smile, hold it a l l back,
but at this point you cant just p r e t e n d.
You slowly lose the one you l o v e.
And no Plead, no scream, no single tear, will make it

Happiness seem so distant now.
Considering loneliness as your faithful O n e.
The part when love starts hurting is far from over now.

Everyone Can Be BrokenHow completely your life can changeEveryone Can Be Broken2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Until who you were seems like a story -
Some twistedly unhappy fairytale.
There are truly good people in the world
But it's my belief that everyone can be broken
And the sickness in me wants to prove it -
Leave no one unscarred
Perhaps people so rarely ask for help because they forget they need it.
You've been in this room a hundred times
But do you know how many bars there are on the windows?
How many times have you cried
With no one watching?
About as many times as you've stared at your palm
And wondered if your future is really written on it.

but i guess there,
are just some things,
Time cant heal,
like the freighting images of my past,
the wounds on my corpse,
that keep getting deeper,
time has done nothing,
except take away my faith,
that they will ever heal.
Kill My HeartI want to kill my heart, and bury it six feet into the ground.Kill My Heart1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I want to live with no boundaries at all.
What difference would it made if I said I love you, or not?
It's something you can't fel for someone who's bound to rot.
I want to kill my heart, and save myself from useless pain.
Everything I would give to a gluttonous cur; he ate and he ate and he ate.
What was left for me?
Nothing but a note at the door "I'm sorry-"
no... I'm done reading.
I'm sick of a broken record.
I want to kill my heart, and bring you down too.
Six feet into the ground; your warm lips turned to blue
love brokenThere will always be more to melove broken3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
than you will ever want to see
lust is such a simple path
to love someone takes broken glass
to cut your heart open and let it bleed
and ill mend it up with sympathy
no fake pet names can make me cry
when you say them in the middle of the night
your voice sounds broken when you say
i love you
but the mirror of words is not enough
and its hard for me to say it back
because i really do
of course ill remember how i feel
even though for you its more a deal
a hug and kiss is all i ask
and for you ill save my broken glass

How much can one person take?
The more i give in and take the blame,
the worse it gets, and nothing makes sense.
I don't exist in my own house.
Maybe not even in my own world.
My world is shifting out of control
I don't know what to do anymore.

Thick with pain and disgrace
Tears falling down like rain
His mem'ry always to remain
His laughter scarred into my heart
A bloodstained knife ripped it apart
There he lay, upon the ground
I tried to help, I really did!
His agony so deeply hid
I prayed for him, to no avail
His demons would at last prevail
A bloody knife, a crumpled shell
He left me here to question why
I couldn't kill his wish to die
Left alone to mourn his death
Taking with him my last breath
So many spiteful thoughts to kill
No, you're wrong, he was just ill!
He didn't mean to hurt me .
Heartlessly desert me
No! He was your greatest friend!!!
But still you know that in the end
His demons won, and now he's dead.

Ghosts, ghosts you will follow
Like dawn follows moon-fall
You are the next charade
One day I'll be leaving
My, my soul feels hollow
Days, days pass by at a crawl
This is my last parade
As the shore is battered by the sea
The sound of waves are crashing around me
I can't hold on, I can't keep back this breath
And in a moment I'll be meeting death
Lights, surrounded by bright lights
This dream I have woken from
I gave up my fight
Now I am moving on

I don't know who I am
or where I've been
Nor the distance in between,
All I know is today
and what tomorrow may bring.
For I am a wanderer,
For I am a broken soul,
A broken soul
Who walks down this path alone
Finding piece by piece
My own redemption.

That stings the hands of princes,
Thorns dripping with Hell's desire,
That smells of Angel's skin.
A demon is the rose,
That teases princes,
Into plucking a gift,
That's a curse,
Eve's apple reincarnate.
With salt infused skin,
Seduced into drowning,
In the clutches of the forbidden,
Is the appeal,
Is the need,
Is the evil,
Until you understand,
What is heaven and,
What is hell,
What is between your breast and your spine?
Do you know?-
Life will show you,
Red roses and Mermaid tails,
Princes and Seamen,
Too senseless to conquer,

From Another age
You're not who you wanted to be
So you attempt to just turn the page
But you Catch yourself
In a nearby mirror
Sitting on a shelf
And you wish you were someone else
Who's that in the mirror,
Can you identify?
Malformed by lies it seems
It's dreams became the most defied
Consumed by time wasting fillers
As to not try
Forgetting your morals and needs
Bleeds from what You Deny
You get my Metaphors?
I see your lies
Leaking from your pores
I know 'cause
I'm just the same
Seeing my youth Yelling,
Screaming, behind locked doors
From our inner parts
Making constant shaking
So it spews from our hearts
Who's that in the mirror
Can you identify?
No? 'cause it seems
It's Dreams became the most defied
Now it seems your feeling down
Sitting in your home;
With eyes of stone.
But inside you give yourself a spin
Fighting all out
But when you fight yourself No One Wins.
People rarely ask,
But when they do
You're "perfectly fine"
Reflection of the UnknownHer eyes stare back at me in disbeliefReflection of the Unknown3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And she wonders why I have witnessed this defeat
The battle is lost, but the war has just begun
As we fight on different sides, when we are supposed to be one
Her movements match mine and her heart beats the same as me
But her life is totally different in places it should not be
We have the same name, same hair, same lies
And sometimes, we even wear the exact same disguise
The world sees her today, as she has won this fight
And I only hope I am seen later on in the night
I place my hand on the glass that separates us
And she does the same, as she knows she must
I do not recognize her, but my own eyes stare back and see
Someone my brain identifies as the one known as "me"
The Boy at Church (Extended Edit)Every Sunday, I see him thereThe Boy at Church (Extended Edit)1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
On the opposite side of the sanctuary.
Jet black is the color of his hair
And just looking at him makes me weary.
I try to think the hue of his eyes
Greenish-hazel, if I remember it right.
From what I see, obviously nice
Very polite and charmingly bright.
He sports a faint stubble
As I catch a glance.
On my nail I nibble
Trying to break off the trance.
Our age lies not too far,
Him one year my senior.
A mature look that can't dar
Along with his pupils of deep noir.
His skin much lighter than mine,
With a slight but lively tan.
From God, it could be a sign
To assign me this young man.
His voice is like a dream,
A comforting deep timbre,
To a shy interested teen
As I listen and linger.
Though hypnotized, love I can't conclude
For personally, I never knew him well;
But still, I hope to soon pursue
Until then, nothing but a crush, it will dwell.
From Never EnderSedate your thoughts at the moment,From Never Ender4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Let our worlds join together.
Never Mind the lack of "insanity" outside,
Let's be more than we are.
Ironically they are no different,
They just lie to form who they are.
Not for I, I'll say the truth from here, on
Yet my word won't get very far.
I don't care, as long as you're here,
I over-think less every day.
Sanity's lost its ungraceful grip on me,
So I am staring to mend to you in different ways.
Sedate Normality at the moment
Tell me how you truly feel.
Forget the lies you are programmed to say,
My attention you can steal.

Gratitude fills the hole that your words have pierced through my heart
A dead end filled with the past of possible outcomes
Laying the responsibility of all our tears at my feet
Silver spooning me your polished version of events
Holding on with every piece of my soul's endurance
While you pry my fingers away from all the dreams I held so dear
Humbled am I, to see it all so clear!
When the guilt was washed away by all of your lies
The weeping echoes of a dying heart

With cold crimson flowing down my arm,
I search for long awaited perspective,
Perspective and lost memories,
Of the Cynical Words that have burned my skin,
For years on end,
I explore the darkest parts of my mind,
The most chilling scars,
That you gave to me,
Because you needed to feel,
Because It was your form of love,
That i accepted,
It's what gave you reality,
It's what filled me with grief,
But kept us breathing,
The anguish that surrounds my soul,
The ugly self hatred in my heart,
It's all worth it,
To keep you feeling,
To keep your heart beating,
To keep me bleeding.

Underneath the whiskey bottle billboard,
my sister Ellen sells daisies, crocheted potholders
and chocolate stained, water raptured paperbacks.
"A buck a cover," she yells lining up the tabloid bright offerings,
a woman fleeing down a mountain path, a lighted window
the swamp blue of a TV screen. Ellen's trying to get money
so she can marry Rick. She culls the books
from neighbors' shelves, windfall apples.
Mama just shakes her head, fingers stained
with brown sugar and nicotine. "She isn't a little girl anymore."
At dusk when the air sweats, Ellen and I lay in the hammock,
strung between trees. "Lord Roger possessed
the dark wounded brooding air of a caged jungle cat,"
she reads. But the only cat I've seen is the next door tabby,
plush as a fake fur cushion. "Her blood pounded, her breath quickened
whenever he touched her." Does it quicken like it does
when you run uphill playing Cowboys and Indians?
Mama's wash would darken with dusk, Ellen's body a whisker of movement

As the bones lay bleaching
in the desert sun,
a man came stumbling by.
As the sun beat down
upon his naked head,
he stopped to ponder why.
Having been lost
for many days,
His mind was in
a heavy haze.
As his thoughts focused
on the bones again,
a tear came to his eye.
And then he continued
upon his way,
It's for a man
