Life As We Know ItLife As We Know It4 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Life is a lot of things: it can suck, it can be happy. It can be so bad of a place that you kill yourself and suddenly, in Heaven, or Hell, or wherever you go when you die, you look at yourself and see that maybe your life wasn't so bad after all, that there are kids who are orphans, and adults who are narcotics, and teens whose lives are destroyed by rape and sexual abuse. But your problem, whether it is a severe name-calling issue, an abusive bf/gf/parent, sexual harrasment, or even a bully who puts you down and beats you up every chance they get, it can be fixed. So if you are thinking about commiting suicide or have plans to already, please just consider what I said and look at the millions whose lives have been destroyed, whose parents have been killed, whose homes have been burned down, and whose lives have been ended for no reason whatsoever, just killed for getting in the way. Please. Just consider.
Suffrage of the ReaperSuffrage of the Reaper4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
An untitled work of crescendos
Lining our future, lining our past
The Reaper's scythe digs into the ground
And there it lays without a sound
Agony spreading across our land
Created by those
They lurk behind doors
And hide behind masks
Their cannibalism utters nothing
Bitter irony to those they betray
The sins that pillage the earth in their wake
Blood & limbs of those with vengeance
Will never feel the same
When it disappears
Prey remove their veneers
And frolic, trapped in falsity
Blinded of the bars that surround them
Blinded of the plague that has never ceased to spread
Nails digging into flesh
They pray to the Gods with their
Surveyed by the shadows
of Satan's reign
A grin, a smirk, to all their pain
A chuckle at discord, a clap for disdain
And the Reaper stands by
Without a say
Not a word for hate
Or a choice for disarray
Oh the Reaper
Exhausted as be
He can never sleep
He must never sleep.

What Music Is"What is music?"What Music Is3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
A young boy asked me that today.
I bent down to his level, so our faces met eye to eye, and, grinning, I responded.
"Why do you care? Out of our world today, why is it you who cares?"
He looked thoughtfully back at me with his eyes, too full of wisdom for his age, and he said, "Because I want to make good music someday."
I liked his answer, so I told him I did. He smiled, seeming honestly pleased that I liked his opinion. He grabbed my hand as I stood up, pleading at me with his eyes, and when I looked into them, I knew he wanted to hear more.
"I will show you the things that proper music make." I said to him. And as I walked along down the street with this child's hand in mine, I thought of how trusting he was being. I didn't know what to make of it, but as he followed along the street with me, I began to point out the things with which proper music was made.
"Music," I said, pausing to think. He looked up at me, as he had noticed my pause because we had stopped walki

IllnessMy voice is boxed in.Illness3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm a bird who can't sing.
I have to make motions
For people to understand.
I can't scream.
I wouldn't be heard, anyway.
I can only run,
And that will take me so far
Before I cannot move any farther.
My head is pounding,
And my hands are cold.
A side-effect of illness.
Illness is weakness
And weakness is shunned.
I just don't know what to do
Strange EyesInsane as the shadows,Strange Eyes3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Unhinged is her soul,
Awaiting the verdict,
She's lost to madness,
Bleeding the sins
Her mind wont condone.
Allowing the madness
To dictate her way.
So injured she struggled,
She defied her demise,
An unexpected prize.
This prize was simple;
A boy with strange eyes,
Who ignited her valor
And saw through the lies.
This boy was different,
He used her real name,
She was no longer known
As the girl who's insane.
Elle and Mias: Elle's PrequelIt started with a phone call.Elle and Mias: Elle's Prequel2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I returned home on holiday to the midlands on the border of Warwickshire and Oxfordshire. My life pursuits London became increasingly difficult as the economy declined into a widely unfavorable state. I was balancing a waitressing job at a café along with bookkeeping work. They paid enough to keep me housed, fed, and clothed, but consequently I neither had the time nor the energy to focus on what I really wanted to do with my life, only... I wasn't quite sure what that was. I suppose I would have liked to attend a university, but I didn't have the funds and neither did my parents. Loans would only us into debt that we likely wouldn't be able to pay off readily.
But my situation wasn't unlike any one else's. At least I had a job and could take care of myself. Sure I felt trapped and lost at the same time, confused, and at the end of the day very lonely. Maintaining a social life became another challenge. Here I was, a month away from my twentieth birth

They said that it would be fun
They said they would never tell
They said I would never have to do it again
They said come on just give it a go
And look at me, stupid me
Trying to be cool
Trying to fit in
I said yes
They took my arm
Put a belt around it and squeezed it tight
Brought out a needle
Filled it up
Found my vein
And injected it into me
A few moments later I felt awesome
Adreneline coursing through my body
The world a better place
It was downhill from there
I drank too much
A needle in my arm more times then I can remember
Going places i've never been too
Seeing people i've never seen
Doing this I would never do
Then I blacked out
Now i've woken up
In a place I don't remember
In a bed that's not mine
Doctors around me
Tubes going into my body
I hear that I overdosed
And almost died
I don't remember anything
I feel so stupid
And all I want is a hit
But if I could I would
Go back to yesterday
And change my answer from yes to no
The Selfishness I EnvyThe Selfishness I Envy3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I envy you
Your ability to actually go through with it
Your ability to just end things
I don't care about your reasons
We each have our own
But you did it
You so selfishly did it
I envy that selfishness
Secretly I always have
I'm a mother
I'm a wife
I'm no longer who I once was
I am selfless
THEY get everything
Even my own soul
I wish I could be
As selfish as you
As the Sun WalksI will rise and walk the sidewalks as the sun walks them.As the Sun Walks3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With careful steps I will do my best to stay up and awake,
Though the sun has no problems with this,
I do we are far apart, Sol and I, fire and earth.
I will rise and walk the sidewalks as the sun walks them,
To the best of my ability, be the tip of the invading spear as it
Mirthfully chases away the night, calling that day has come,
Let Night retire to their mutual couch!
I will rise and walk the sidewalks as the sun walks them.
For the morning is a sort of table, a place of parley between
Light and Dark, and between silence and noise.
You, walker, with me walk the sidewalks of Clinton where
The faithful scholars walk, and the two of us will be quiet.
Perhaps we will speak, but it will be a calm speech,

Curled up against you
In the backseat of her car
And tried to pretend
I was safe

Durias stood frozen in the dimly lit dining hall, the little brunette bundled in his arms.
The portal in the stone wall behind him fizzled and popped as it slid closed, the dark alleyway beyond the opening shimmering like the surface of a lake before fading back into the wall.
His heart hammered in his chest as the reality of what he had done sank in.
He had made a terrible, colossal, god-awful mistake.
I should not have taken her.
He had acted on impulse, throwing caution to the wind--something he had never done in his thirty-one years. In battle, such brash action would surely have gotten he and his men killed, and he couldn’t understand how he could so easily go against his principles now.
I had to possess her…I do not understand it…
Durias had been so taken with Julie--so curious as to why she had stirred such longing within him so quickly, so completely--that he hadn’t even considered the danger he would put her i

Nothing could compare to the rising

And it will always continue to be there

they merely co-exist, never to truly
