Seven Songs of SinAll for one,Seven Songs of Sin4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
None for all;
Together we stand,
Alone we fall.
Crash and burn for all I care.
It's not me in that mess out there.
Sex and fame and violence await
I will not bow to your horrible fate
As blood is spilt and the famed arise,
I am not sure I can compromise.
This life of lust is too good you see
To fall to your level of pride and agony.
Why can't you solve your own problems?
I do not see
How I can fix your agony.
My mind is great,
But my limbs are tied
To this comfy life of nothing.
The TV is on,
My mind is blank.
For this life of sloth,
I've you to thank.
My power is great.
My money is greater.
For these ways of life know no falter.
Power and wealth is what I seek.
For gold and riches, I will not be weak.
I will get what I want,
You cannot stop me.
For my life of greed is all I will ever need.
Piles and piles and piles of riches
Are piled so high they seem to touch the sky.
All of these things and so much more
Isn't nearly enough of what I'm looking for.
Gluttony is controlli

Memories losing feeling.
Sickness taking over,
Evil closing in.
All of this will take its course,
All of us shall perish.
People say it will go away,
But I cannot believe it as the truth.
Life is dulling,
Feelings are becoming void.
As I lie here,
I wait for you to save me from this hell.
Wanna Know a Secret?Candies, rainbows, and gumdrops galore!Wanna Know a Secret?5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You wanna know something that I've got in store?
It starts with a twist,
And ends up like this!
To where I am today.
It's filled with wonder and light,
But also horror and fright.
To where wondering thoughts go astray.
There are horrors at first glance,
But as I'm set in my battle stance,
I have got to know this:
Are you willing to take a risk?
To know how I ended up like this?
Do you wanna know the whole story?
If you do,
I have got to make an inquiry:
Do you wanna know a secret?
Why is Difference so Bad?Difference.Why is Difference so Bad?5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It is what tells one apart from another.
It is what creates new bonds and destroys others.
But most of all,
It is what people do not understand and some fear.
What the world fails to see most of all is:
Everyone is different.
I ask you this:
Why do you hate me for being who I am?
Sure, I wear black;
I listen to rock and metal;
I love violence and scary things;
I love videogames and anime;
I am dark,
I am twisted,
And I'm weird,
But I'm still human.
Why is it you hate me?
Are you so afraid of difference that you're afraid of me for being myself?
Being different isn't a disease.
You won't catch it.
Grow up and get over yourself.
Not everyone is just like you.
What Hate Hath WroughtCold, worthless and broken.What Hate Hath Wrought5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
This is what they felt.
What animals hath wrought such terrors, you may ask?
The animals who called themselves Nazis.
They who though themselves superior;
They you thought they were god.
When in reality,
They were nothing short of Satan.
They treated the prisoners are though they were trash;
Made them think they were nothing but trash.
Cold night after cold night those prisoners endured.
Only to have to wake up to hatred, disgust, and fear.
Who wouldn't go animalistic?
Yet, even still some held on to sanity,
If only barely.
Some never lost Faith,
If only by shear will.
They are heroes.
For they survived through tremendous terror;
And that is nothing short of amazing.
Yet, I cannot help but feel disconnection.
For I have not lived through their pain,
Nor have I lived through their terror and fear.
I will never feel as though they felt,
And for that, I am forever grateful.
Smile, Everyone's Watching Put on that smile, doll, everyone is watching. Do not let people in; do not talk about yourself, and above all, DO NOT let people know anything about you they could use to their advantage. Do not act like you have problems in your life. Just act as though everything is okay and that you do not give a rip about life. If you believe it well enough, maybe, just maybe, it will become the truth.Smile, Everyone's Watching5 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Telling yourself this day after day after fucking day does not make it any easier; however. If anything, it only makes matters worse.
One can only take so much before it builds up too much and you just pop.
But you just keep burying you problems. No one out there really cares about you anyway. Just keep smiling, baby, and everything will be alright. You'll see! Just wait! That smile of yours will take you straight to the top! No one will be able to stop you!
Except that you yoursel
All of These LiesI am a monster stalking my prey.All of These Lies5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I am a killer waiting for my victim.
I am a loon on the loose, killing as I please.
I am a freak of nature destroying all that is loved.
I am a disease waiting for a new vessel to kill.
I am your hatred.
I am your suffering.
I am your death.
And all of this is a complete lie,
For I am none of this.
I am an angel sent from heaven to spread happiness with my people.
I am a hero saving yet another maiden.
I am a rescuer saving someone from their retched nightmares.
I am your hope.
I am you happiness.
I am your life.
And all of this is a complete lie,
For I am none of this.
Yet, I am all of this.
Every last thing.
Do you even believe such lies?
The Color Spectrum of ChaosRed is the blood spilt from meaningless war and suffering.The Color Spectrum of Chaos4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Orange is the wrath of the flames burning everything anyone has ever loved.
Yellow is the shear sadistic thrill of the monsters seeing their most hated victims suffer. It is the monsters' undying lust for blood and agony.
Green is the envy of the victims for those who are safe and pay no mind to those who suffer.
Blue is the sadness and anguish for those the soon to be victims have lost.
Purple is the darkening sky that signifies the end to one agony and the beginning of another. It is the victims' wounds coloring with bruises.
These terrors will continue to escalate for these monsters are never satisfied and will continue to burden the world with chaos until the days these monsters cease to exist.
Black, the absence of this spectrum, the nonexistent color that people fear the most, is the completely misunderstood chance of survival. It is the chance of escape from this madness. The shadows that will disguise those with their o
Stay With Me I see you there. You are always there. Just standing there in the distance. You wave to me. It seems as though you notice me when I'm in the shadows. It seems as though you really care.Stay With Me5 years ago in Emotional More Like This
For once in my life, I can let go. For once in my life, I feel free. For once in my life, I do not have to hide; I do not have to pretend that everything is just fine.
You made my mask crack. You made my mask crumble. You made my mask split in two.
You assured me that life gets better. You promised to always be there. For the first time in my life, I believed what you said to be true.
So far, you have been true to your word and have stood by me ever since day one. You have never given me reason to revert to my old ways of hiding.
That is what scares me the most though. You have my heart in your hand. The next move i
Still, There May be Hope Again, you are stuck in that dark room, in that small overcrowded space, shackled down with these heavy chains. You always seem to end up here, even after you swore you were out for good. There seems to be no way out. No hidden passage or magic word that would make things easier. Nothing that would change the things they were now.Still, There May be Hope5 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Screaming your throat raw never did help. Fighting the shackles only made them grow tighter. Nothing and no one was able to help you.
You always begged and pleaded for someone, anyone to let you out, to set you free! You didn't belong here! You did nothing wrong!
You never could remember how or why you ended up here. You never could remember committing a horrible enough crime that would force you to be in such a wretched place.
Yet, there is a reason for why you are here. Though it may not seem like it, this pla

Cold and broken.
Was that your plan?
To just toss me like yesterday's trash?
Okay I know that wasn't your plan,
Yet, even still,
That's what it felt like.
As I sit here,
I cannot help but think,
Love grows stronger the longer we are apart.
These words reign true,
For I have never felt this strongly about anyone.
Forgive me for the wrong I have done.
Forgive me for the problems I have caused you.
For I can contain these feelings no longer.
You were everything to me,
And I just took it for granted.
I was an idiot.
I know I was.
For what we had,
Take me back?
I can't hope to even begin to explain my feelings I have for you,
But for you, I can try.
I love you.
I always have.

And as fragile as thin ice.
I'm as calm as still water,
And as energized and crazy as the roaring white waters of a river.
I'm as happy as a clam,
And as angry as a wasp.
I'm as loud as a Siren!
And as quiet as a mouse.
I'm as bright as the sun itself,
And as dark as the far side of Pluto.
I'm as friendly as a Labrador retriever,
And as shy as a fish.
I'm as brave as an epic hero,
And as scared as a Holocaust prisoner.
I'm as caring as a Catholic,
And as uncaring as a murderer.
I'm as anything that is everything,
And as nothing that is not.
I'm a walking contradiction,
And that's all there is to it.
CourageCourage is many things.Courage5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It is believing in yourself and not doubting yourself for even a second.
It is staying strong throughout the many hardships you have to face.
It is choosing your own path, not the path others are taking.
It is facing the risk of failing, but continuing anyway.
It is standing up for what you think is right, even if everyone else says otherwise.
It is making decisions and following them, even if you end up hurting others with your choices.
It is finding ways to overcome the difficulties you have to face.
It is stopping something that you think is wrong, and making others see what they are doing.
It is being a leader and not following what everyone else is doing.
It is making difficult decisions that may not work at first, but over time will help.
It is believing that in the end everything will be better.
Courage is these things and so many more
What Happend to Living?Clones,What Happend to Living?5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Routine that cannot be broken.
Brainwash is all I see.
No one thinking from themselves,
No one caring.
Life has become pointless,
Everyone is the same.
Those who try to be different are seen as freaks of nature.
We are referred to as such.
I might be a "freak,"
But it is far better than being a clone of society.
I bet you "normal people" can't even think for yourself.
You have to have society tell you what to do,
How to act,
What to like
What a waste of life.

That was my first impression of you.
Was I right?
Was I wrong?
I had not the slightest inclination,
For I had just met you.
Yet, as time passed,
I still had no way of knowing.
You seemed to like what the majority of others liked,
And that was fine.
At least for a time.
It was not until you started to like that of the Underground.
This I knew was not of your own taste.
My sanction, now stolen.
Other's sanction, now taken.
Our Undergrounds were NOT for the taking,
No Matter what you may have thought.
They were our sanctions, our security,
And you stole that away from us.
You had no right,
They were ours and ours alone.
Every obsession, every liking, everything we ever loved,
Completely, and undeniably,
Everything that was once ours,
You claimed it to be your own.
You claimed you, in and of yourself, to be someone you are most obviously are not.
So, first impressions,
Was I right?
I was wrong.
I was horribly wrong.
Secrets: Chapter 2The rest of the week was a blur. Tuesday was just as boring as any other Tuesday, Mollie wasn't there. Nor was she there the rest of the week. Kara had acted like Monday never happened, which concerned me. Usually she'd be ranting and raving for days when something out of the ordinary happened. But she didn't. Had I really seen her? Was Mollie an actual person and not just a thing of my imagination?Secrets: Chapter 25 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
At this point I was beginning to believe anything was possible. Those dreams I've been having were getting worse and worse and I happened to be in one right now.
I was in a room; that much was certain. The room was an eerie, dark red color with a mid-evil looking window. The rays of the moon light cast shadows all along the walls and furniture of what seemed to be a bed room, or rather a bed chamber. By the looks of things, I was somewhere in the past, and most definitely in trouble.
Tap, tap, tap. Footsteps. Wonder who that could be? Tap, tap, tap. The footsteps grew louder with every step
Damned to InsanityHappiness shines through my window,Damned to Insanity5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But I back into the shadows to shroud myself in sorrow.
Optimism comes to spread her happy thoughts,
But she is drowned out by my worrying pessimism.
Companionship wants to play,
But I run away and cast myself in loneliness.
In this dark abyss of which I've entered,
There are only so many emotions here.
Anger comes to threaten,
Rage comes to hurt,
Conflict comes to kill,
While insanity cheers them on.
Though instead of the feelings of fear I should feel,
I feel hope.
I welcome these emotions with open arms
For these are the emotions that let me feel satisfaction.
They let me feel free.
They left me feel alive.
But when it is time for them to go,
I'm left with longing.
Until the day which they will come back again
