A Sad BenchA Sad Bench3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A sad bench
under a big tree
in the haze
there's you and me.
along the way
I started to dream.
And I want
to tell myself that,
I didn't say
it came readily
to my lips.
I still love him
and my heart is
I don't hate you,
but if you hate me
its only a dream
I want to believe.
And there is still
a sad bench
under a large oak tree.
And it's wrapped in fog
and lamp light.
were I so inclined
to stop and stare.
And I blame him
because I had
a best friend.
It's not your fault.

she was fine she was mine
she was the flower with the pinky line
winter winds freezing her
but she waited for summer'sun to shine
like a princess took away her crown
autumn colored her brown
but winds never made her bent
hiding secret behind this scent
attracting stranger as she looked so innocent
seducing them confused me,she was asinner or a saint
her skin were falling darkness crawling
ibeged her to stay but death was calling
she was fine she was mine
what start as challenge end with lie
light had finally kissed her goodbye
carving time took her away
still trying to erase memories of that day
isit and watched her for hours
he slayed her flush what a coward
she said it not painful its a small cut
the devil rises her riot
day by day knives get sharper cuts get deeper
sleevs went down ,reasons were cheaper
bloody walls were the secret keeper
broken glasses lock the closet hold the door
blood were running laying down on a cold floor
staring with guilty eye
hear the beating races high
That Familiar Blue LightAnd as the light shined throughThat Familiar Blue Light2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
and created it's eery shade of blue,
baby.... I seen myself in you.
Remnants in the shadows of true love, fallen from former glory.
The dreams, the coveting, the memories;
I feel the moment slip into the past,
Why's it so hard for anything to truly last?
And so again, the light shined through...
And projected that eery familiar, dark shaded blue...
And so I see the real, true, skeleton version of you.
You're not as I thought you were;
Hiding your evil... Just another girl with a mask.
You see, love, real life "fairytales"... Seem to die so fast.
And so I ask:
As times passes, and I handle each life task,
What would you say? How would you react, what would you do?
If I was proud, would you feel it too?
.....Do you feel it now? Do you love me still? I doubt it
But mine remains true.
My life is great;
But everything would be greater, if I simply had you.
Ascendas we all are, spirits,Ascend2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
we ascend with every step we take
and are drawn to those journeying with us
We childishly covet those beneath us,
and strive to gain the attention of those above.
In a perfect world, those with bright colors would shine,
and inspire those who haven't the energy to soar.
but our world is far from a utopia,
our luminescent canvases tainted by greys
and the unjust use their means to excel,
and those who once shined without fear...
...are lost in an ocean of disillusion.

Tattoos of empty chairs beside me
Deafening silence echoes through the room
Taste the salt in my mouth
As I'm sitting
Will this ever be let out?
Invisible fists clench my insides
As I'm starting to figure now
There will be no footprints on the dusty floor
Oh no, my head filled with shouts
I look outside
The rain slides down
I grip my empty glass beside me
There's just no way, and just no how
These whirlpools are getting bigger
Try and escape them now
Oh, try and escape them now
I'll be your friendDo you need a friend?I'll be your friend2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
One that will hold your hand,
and never let go?
One that will be there till the very end
and not run away?
I'll hug you when you are sad...
I'll embrace you when you need me to...
I'll cry with you if you want...
I'll laugh when it's time to...
I'll be there when you need me to,
That is, if you only want a friend.
Just say yes, and I'll be yours.
If fact, no need to speak, a hug is fine.
Because I'll be yours
And you'll be mine.
And together we can explore the world
Because I'll always be there for you.
And when you get tired of me
No need to fret, just toss me aside and I'll be gone.
I'll be sitting there watching and waiting
Not saying a word.
My only wish, is that someday,
my friend will return...

You're fucking crazy. Everybody run!
Before this is said and done, they'll blow us all to kingdom come!
There's a psycho living next door!
The lawn is littered with crooks and whores!
And it's, in the name of the lord!
In god they trust and for god they hoarde!
All they want is death and riches!
We can't escape! These sons of bitches!
Providing safety, but the only hitch is.
There's a psycho living next door.
Pointless parties and pointless war.
And it's, in the name of the father.
In god they trust and for god they slaughter.
Perfect ForcedPorcelain face, golden curls, big brown eyes.Perfect Forced2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Full ruby lips, perfect to kiss.
A fake smile clings to her teeth.
She forces herself not to grit them.
Her skirt is a pretty color - not too long, never too short.
Here they come. A perfect pair - a botoxed face,
and his eyes, that strip away her lies.
Those eyes know too much.
Their mask is happy,
but he's a few steps from an illicit visit in a shady hotel.
She watches the color drain from their faces as they realize.
She smiles too wide.

Late night thoughts.Oh... the sights I'll never see, the dreams that'll never be.Late night thoughts.2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I hold myself back and to a certain degree,
It makes me, well, me.
The cold breeze on my skin, the cold sensational linger of a damaged heart;
I see the clear blue sky,
And oh, oh, it all begins to die. It all fades out, and so I ask why?
The day is nice, the air is rich
And yet we're cold, and yet we're falling...
Why are we falling?
Oh the sights I wish to see, they lead me to believe
That life is what you make it, and I've made it cold, cold indeed.
Backing up with tears in my eyes and oh, the sights I'll never see...
I'm concealing in my heart, things I wish to say
And I'm feeling in my body, the troubles of my day and so I realize, yes, I see clearly now.
Her innocence is my test, and
Her restless beauty, a gift at its best
but tell me love, what do you want me to do?
The sight I dream of most, is the sight of me and you.
And so I ask, when the sun itself ceases to shine...
Do I embrace the darkness, or do I man up and

Show me picasso, show me Monet
Whatever game you want, that's what I'll play
No matter what you need, that's what I'll say
It's simply a matter of keeping the peace
What you have on me is more than a lease
Of each other we both have a piece
We laugh together, cry together, we are forever
Tell me what you want and I'll pull the right lever
You take every action you make as your last endeavor
When it's not okay and when it's far greater than that
I know you're there to tip your hat
The support you offer is just that
We are one in body and mind
Though occasionally towards one another we get unkind
Every relationship has bumps to find
Play together, laugh together,
Cry together, live together.
Separation is impossible
and entirely implausible.

Soft angel kisses from
The dark haired seraph of
Love and sweet divinity.
Nice, warm caresses from the
Beautiful, kind lover with the
Long, brown hair and
Intense brown eyes,
Dark like almond nut,
Hard like the crisp shell,
Yet they melt into passion like
Sweet, ginger chocolate
Over the deliciously roasting
Rough, sweltering kisses where
Our tongues dance like the Spanish women
In their colorful blossom skirts that
Twirl like tropical flowers under the
Bright, glowing sun,
So warm like the lusty
Touch of another that
Comes from the icy rain in
Tall and lean like the
Firm oak tree with his
Intelligent features and
Aging branches that retain
Forever immortal to the
Sands of time.
A lovely voice
Like the deep tenor song
Of the church bells
That sing in the distant horizon,
Crying out to the world
Of his love, his
Beauty he has behold, the
Stories he has heard, the
People he has me

And yet, sitting in the darkness,
I still wait for the flashes of hope,
that will surely lead me back to that beautiful, crystal-blue sky.

With blood racing, heart pounding
A faraway thought dreamt or
A love so enlighting
Colouring this world you, sun
Bestowing passion with your heat
Swallowing us in your embrace
Briefly stopping my heart - beat
Though ticking time may
Change life's appearance alike
Nor seasons nor doubts will cloud my heart
For you star outshines all
Lone longing comes alive at night
When darkness takes his breath
Like death, taking all the light
And warmth daylight had
