I bite them when I'm worried.
My hair is not long and does not flow,
it's out of the way as I work.
My eyes are not bright and blue,
they're dark brown and determined.
You still call me Beautiful.

With the last spark of lantern left undone
The question of whose story shall unravel and whose will be guarded.
The one who faints to the rhythm of my restless words
One who bows down to the crevices in my white lies?
One who swallows the key to my freedom?
One who carves the cage apart with bare bleeding fingers?
One who exaggerates tales of vile demons before my eyes lock away the midnight?
One who defends my pity, pride and body as I lay unawakened?
One who leashes me to the plunder of bed as the house burns to bits?
One who summons the sun to feed me?
One who tells the moon to lay flowers on my unattended grave?
One who whips me out of guilt as I'm crowned the destroyer?
One who is traumatized as my reflection stares back through the false looking glass?
One who stabs the light with a butcher knife and raises a new elegant bulb?
One who serves me weapons of occult as I escape the horizon?
One who intentionally drops my coin in the wishing well?

I guess you could say,
The weather was perfect
For this kind of day.
I was laying in the bed,
People circled around,
Tears and Goodbye’s
were the only thing found.
They carried my vessel,
out to the grave,
Laid me down,
In this sacred place.
I saw my best friend,
broken and shattered.
I tried to comfort her,
although now that doesn’t matter.
The flowers were beautiful.
I guess you could say,
The weather was perfect
For this kind of day.
A TestShe sitsA Test1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
They hadn’t meant it
Simply got distracted
Forgot she was talking
Forgot she had been smiling
While she told them, what had seemed
To her anyways
But it was only accidental
No harm intended
That’s why she gave them this chance
And she waited
But they forget
Forget she had been talking
And never ask her to start again
To finish the story
She was trying to share
They must not have cared much
While she had been telling them
They always do
Nobody ever passes the test
So she crosses them off
Her list of people
Whom she will speak to
At least about the important stuff anyways
And sits and waits
Wondering if anyone will ever pass the test
Besides the people in her head
They wonder why children make up imaginary friends
Coming BackYou're destined to come back,Coming Back1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
in one of those rainy nights
when the bells ring,
and people rejoice
you'll be there
and cry your pain over my soul.
You seek a lap to hide
from the truth in everybody's eyes
and warm up in my embrace
but my heart is colder than snow
and I poured poison in your glass
My heart promised me,
you'll come back
and sing our song,
call me love, and
promise yourself to me.
Repeat your words of longing
for my laughter, my smile
and I only fear my soul will give
before your lullaby.
I'm still waiting, you know,
for that rainy night when
you knock on my door,
and i will ask you
why you ran away?
who you left me for?
Go back, follow your greed
to your toys of diamond and gold.
This heart is long gone,
along with its shattered soul,
but be careful don't drink that wine
I still poured poison in your glass.

To just disappear.
You wouldn't know,
If you just weren't here.
There is no feeling,
Because you can't feel.
You can't interpret.
You just aren't real.
It's so lonely here,
Where you used to be.
I look around,
But it's only me.

Wander to nowhereA ghostly walk on the autumnal pavementWander to nowhere1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Even my own shadow is gleaming more
Than the empty shell of my body.
As I keep wandering, on this endless pit
Picky starving crows are looking down on me
The leftovers of my thoughts order me to die out.
This path of glory I've kept away from, it might be gone.
My dignity and pride, where have you fled?
I'm searching for the graveyard of redemption
Where my promises are all buried
Shot down by my deceit's gun.
Will you ever forgive me?
As I'm standing there, the icy silence blows ;
As time goes by, the ruthless mutism of yours
Reckons that time for forgiveness hasn't come yet.

I only bring out your deep fear.
Constantly near panic attack.
Focusing on what you lack.
So afraid that I'll go away.
Why do you want me to stay?
You deserve more than me.
Really, what do you see?
Trying to be better for you.
I don't know what I can do.
I'll try whatever I can.
I'm just sorry for who I am.
The Sting of Despair's TriumphWhere there is hopeThe Sting of Despair's Triumph10 months ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
so warm and kind
There will be more disappointment
so cold and harsh
Promises are used to deceive
Dreams are meant to be forgotten
Hearts are made to be broken
Don’t be deluded
Don’t fall for those lies
Hope always fails
but despair never dies
You cannot stop it
Just give up hope
The sting of despair’s triumph
is harsher for those who dream

You only care about having fun.
Only one parent to raise.
This doesn't seem to faze.
You were never really there.
I wonder if you can even care.
You act like such a child.
Your temper just seems wild.
I don't know what's in your head.
Not my mother, in your bed.
My sister just keeps crying.
I wish you were just trying.
I just want you to understand,
But I don't think you can.

when he scattered a combination of kisses
on my collarbones & chest
(the rusted gate to the crevice of my crux)
in a vain attempt to unlock the possibility of a love so parched,
like the terrain of his treachery,
that the sweat determined to fall down our backs
would be enough to quench his thirst -
as if each kiss would be enough to transform my entire core
into a garden of his own
to play in.
with each kiss
he planted flowers in my heart,
with roots down to the core of my being,
knowing of the dark clouds
pouring down the rain from my brain,
nourishing the fruits of his labour
in a cool whirl -
a breeze enough to ruffle even the smallest of feathers,
swirl the dead-most leaves,
& arouse the most dormant
even if each kiss was enough to transform the crumbling of gates
(like an autumn leaf
slow dancing its way to the ground
in a fear of being crushed
by the foot steps left on my heart),
the falling of summer's lust,
& the trembling of hands against t

A joy to everyone he would see.
Stop and chat for a while.
He could make anyone smile.
Everyone wished they could be him.
So pure he was, without sin.
But he loved to be by himself.
He had hid from everyone else.
All the smiles were in vain.
His mind was filled with pain.
He didn't know how to end.
Known not by a single friend.
Everyone thought he was fine.
He gave a smile for the last time.

I am a mermaid searching for a prince to give my voice.
I float and dance with the twisted sea grass.
Bright bioluminescence like stars below the cover of ocean
Until the eyes of a monster cross my path.
My surroundings morph into a murky, haunted scene.
My tail is replaced with shaking knees
and the chase begins.

You have stood with me through all ends
You live so far away
but needless to say
Because of you I am okay
in more than just one way
I have known you for so long
You didn't care when I was wrong
you held my hand
You've been there you understand
I first picked up the pen for you
What else was a child going to do?
How else would you see a child like me?
That's one thing you don't see
everything I am, strong and defined
Is because of my angel, wise and refined.

No path telling me where to go.
Nothing bare could be found.
Not a single soul around.
Trees covered with a sheet of ice.
New sites as I look thrice.
Beautiful sites never seen before.
Drawing me in, wanting more.
Magical everything seems.
Can't believe it's not a dream.
I take my step and blaze my way.
The sun appears to start the day.
