StandI've walked through the fires of hell and back,Stand4 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.

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.
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.
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
Kill My HeartI want to kill my heart, and bury it six feet into the ground.Kill My Heart2 years 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

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

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

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"
ClosenessBeing close to the one I love is a wondrous thing.Closeness1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
To be able to feel their presence beside you.
To hold their hand.
To see their smile.
Their presence brings great joy to me.
The closeness you feel to them is a reminder of the love you share.
It is a stark contrast to when they are away from you.
When they are away, they are always on your mind.
You want to be closer to them,
To be with them.
Even if it is not possible at the moment.
You find less joy in things than when the one you care about is around.
While you can be happy while they are away,
You still want to be by their side.
For that is where I truly feel complete.
It does not matter what we are doing,
Just that I am with the one that I love.
For there is nowhere else I would rather be.

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.
The Words That ScarWhile I sit,The Words That Scar3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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

But now I think I know
What I once thought was a horror
Has now become so close
I never understood why
People would do such a thing
But as it glides with a sigh
My skin begins to sing
What type of song, I don’t know
Whether of pain or relief
Red like blood or white as snow
What’s with all this grief?
I don’t do it for attention
But I don’t want to be alone
I know I’m not the only one
But I’m still on my own
It’s not that I don’t get love
My friends are good with that
It’s just that I don’t get enough
When my heart’s squished flat
I can talk to my friends online and such,
But it’s just not the same
It helps a bit but not enough
I’m still lost in the pain
It’s not that I have given up
I’m still fighting strong
The fact I’m alive is proof enough
But I’ve been on this road too long
It may seem I’ve given up
But I’ve just given in

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

His mind was in

As his thoughts focused

a tear came to his eye.
And then he continued

Passing HoursTick tock goes the clockPassing Hours1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
As I sit inside this room.
Counting down the seconds
Until the next hour tolls.
One for the innocent man
Mudered by two friends.
Three had witnessed the crime,
And four were told of it.
Five had found the body
Tossed into the lake.
Six were suspected of the crime,
But there should have been seven.
Eight cops investigated,
While nine stayed at home.
At ten they found DNA
Of about eleven strands;
And at 12 o'clock
The murders caught,
An so ends this little tale.
So to pass the time,
Create a rhyme;
See what stories you can tell.

Up to the hungover sky
I turn to you
Your drunken smile
Mocking as the horrible
Fill me with such sickness
Settling deep in my stomach
Like brick and mortar
on words caught in my throat
Protests, all futile effort
Your amusement as a chorus erupts
That same harsh sound
Like falling rocks grinding together
I back away, retreat
Far from this tangled mess of sound
Your laughter echoing
in my wearied mind
I beg to be left alone.

We'll stand together in that distant land
Where the moon's silver rays shine
Across the glistening sea
Of hopes and wishes
For you and me.
We'll go so far away, just you and me
From the present, to the past and to
The future of possible peace.
Where joy and happiness
Will settle down on us
For you and me.
We'll stay there till the sun dares peak through
The light clouds scattered above us
And over that ridge there
Where the grass grows
So green and lush
For you and me.
Someday you will see my dream and thought
For us to be together as one, over
In that land so distantly clear,
Beautiful and strange
And so simply built,
For you and me.
