03 Reminiscing Witch Even with its potential escape having been a part of her calculations, she failed to prevent the creature from bolting out the front door. The incantations at the exit proved useless, only respectable for warding away evil spirits, not restraining the dead. She reasoned it was hardly her fault. Obviously her older sister had provided rotten information.
"Damn it! Why do these things always happen to me?" The spacious room offered only an echo as an answer. She plopped down. Her skirt bottoms puffed up a decade worth of dirt and dust collected along the filthy wooden floor. Visions flashed through her head, memories of past experiments that resulted in failure. It depressed her, not having a single successful event to think of that might have raised her depleting spirits.
"The damn thing ran away first chance it got! I couldn't even contain it long enough to confirm if my words were intelligible to it." Her veins pumped ice water
AnimalsWe’re animals, we’re beasts who preyAnimals2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Upon the weak who fear our stay
Its natural to feast and slay
Their hearts bleed in our jowls
We all wear masks and masquerade
As decent creatures, folks who pray
But deep inside, our demons play
Beneath cowardice cowls
The others claim to know the way
Those neutered, tamed, trained to obey
Condemning us for what we say
Look down at us with scowls
They lock our voices in a cage
Restrictions bind, we’re blind with rage
Liberate yourselves, you slaves
Let free your hungry howls
To the vermin calling me scoundrel
I will not heel, I will not bow
You’ll hear the hatred in my growl
This angry beast is on the prowl
Living DeadI awake with worms crawling inside, dying from infectionLiving Dead3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My gut dug into, fractured ribs, missing some intestines
My jaw is broken, hanging open, I'm blind in both my eyes
Limbs locked by rigor mortis, a pitchfork sticks out my thigh
The only pain I feel is a constant aching hollow
Impulse to fill the void has me in search of ones to swallow
I hunger for the living... I've lost my grip on sanity
Cravings control this corpse to turn on crying family
I'm all regret and rot, they're blood and snot and tear bubbles
I wish I could resist... but the empty sickness doubles
I bite into the necks of the ones I once protected
Chew away their flesh and leave their pleas neglected
I can't escape the filth ingrained in skin; it stains my mind
I'm covered head to toe in wounds, bloody brains and grime
Cursed to feed again, no end until I've lost my head
The night forever haunted by the marching genocidal dead
Bi ChoiceChoose one and lose oneBi Choice3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Love both and choose none
He's tough but she's nice
She's sweet but he's spice
I'm stuck in this dichotomy
My choices are hypocrisy
To love his blatant honesty
Means hating her for modesty
My heart is so confused
How could I ever choose
Love her and love him too
Different reasons but it's true
He makes me forget
All the failures I've been with
The only family in his pack
And sometimes his midnight snack
He's my shiny armored knight
The sturdy sword I use to fight
But she's become my trusted shield
Causing enemies to yield
With her I feel admired
Her desire, I'm inspired
Cuddling warmth, comforting kisses
And a belly full of wishes
The dragon or the butterfly
With both I live, with none I die
But only one I can call mine
The other's love I must decline

Cravings spoken by their sins
Savings spent to dust again
Actions fueled by greed
Soaking tongues salvate and savor
Rocket highs and potent flavors
Trading pockets, friends and favors
Taste buds start to bleed
Neighbors who trusted each other
Backstab and sell out their brother
Just to taste that devil butter
A sea full of misdeeds
Shaking in anticipation
Can't escape the situation
Hooked in by their desperation
Your system wants to feed
Addiction cracks the sanest mind
Polluting thoughts from the inside
Corrupted souls commit the crime
You can't deny the need

You look very sweet
You look good to eat........
Hello my dear!
Nice to meet you!
After we're acquainted
I think I'll eat you!
Your girl was my breakfast
I ripped her to shreds
Since she stood between us
She was better off dead....
Sharpened my knife
Grinned very wide
Run, run away
I follow with great strides
I know I'm insane
It's really a kick!
When you see someone die
You really enjoy it
How do you do?
Who are you?
You look very sweet
You look good to eat........
You can call me
Miss fallen angel
you can call me
The shadow of death
you can call me
The scary stranger
No matter what
You always know
I'm a freak!
I followed you home
Ya didn't see me.
I crept through the window
My eyes were gleaming
You slept very quietly
In your soft bed
I slipped up beside you
And then you were dead!
You should have seen
the look on your face!
And the way your scream
Echoed around the place

Instead of fists you touch me with the gentlest of hands
Each stroke and pet so delicate, I suffer suffocation
Please choke out tears that spell my love, enforce humiliation
I crave your loving touch in ways I doubt you comprehend
How is it true affection if your nails don't break the skin?
Sweet nothings make me nauseous, offer promises of pain
True intimacy scares me, love, I'd rather take the cane

Unconcerned with what her actions would prove
To him that no one
Could ever love a face like his
That no one
Could ever hold his hand

Never love again

I’m desperate to find any way I can to defy
It’s simple to see life offers no sequel
And no opportunity is created equal
Life is flawed, full of indelible kinks and crinkles
No matter how hard you press iron steam to wrinkle
Let it be; instead of reveling in damning hate
I plan to paint my fate by hand
And carve my own identity as destiny dictates
I’ll invent my own recipe
And give the world the best of me
Let the rest of me sink in obscure seas of time
Lend my heart to art, breathe in life with each line
Exhale excellence and seize what’s rightfully mine
One-half man submerged in human history
One-half idea to live in fame or infamy
For centuries existing beyond my mortal misery
With these words of wizardry and different sensibilities
Some intellect, introspective thoughts and humane empathy
Maturity, courage, a strong sense of humility
Talent, support, a showcase of my abilities
And honestly, a lot of luck in the f

A victim of a hundred worthless smiles.
False faces I've seen before,
Never realising the pity I know,
Until they've succumbed to all their petty lies.
You see me now,
A victim of a thousand gentle sighs.
Misery masks hidden from afar,
Forever locked in this insanity war,
Now they drown under a swarm of flies.
You see me now,
A victim of a million pointless stares.
Eccentric eyes of hope is all I convey,
Ever to believe in those games they play,

From what I want.
I will keep trying.

The lake here is an amazing sight.
I stand looking at my reflection alone,
Reflecting on past decisions all my own.
Tears fall as memories push forward.
Thinking back, how much I've altered.
And I let all of it happen to me.
I'm not the person I wanted to be.
And suddenly, I wish to take it all back.
Everything I've done that's been tinted black.
I want to be forgiven, and forgotten.
It's not often I feel so rotten.
There's a tightness growing in my chest.
My own self and mind, I detest.
The wind evokes a traveling chill.
Reflections done, swallowed a harsh pill.
I shift my vision up to the sky.
I'm left with one question: Why?
Why, despite all of my imperfections,
I still win others affections?
Pondering so many more things,
All the things that life brings.
Heading home, the day at an end,
Only to wake up, and ponder again.

The one that I loved the most
I try helping them but your help was unwanted here
I try asking questions but I just end up guessing the answer instead of asking straight out
But no, it's none of your business even if you care and love me
Sure it is fine, I will let you be
And thinking letting you just talk will help you feel better but not this time
Feeling useless and empty
But why I like this?
Do I care too much?
Do I always want the best for you?
Wasn't I was there when you needed the most?
More and more becoming distance
You and I, we are not the same
Different goals, different reasons
I cared about you but you just threw it away
Turn your back to me
Nothing left to do but to give you space
But it felt like it was a mistake
It went from days to weeks to months without talking
But then something change everything
A mysterious call came through, I couldn't recognise the number but I picked up
It was your mom and told me something bad happened to you

It's not my fault you had me so embrace your young mistake

Just admit to it you bitch, all your loving words are fake
Since my hurtful birth you've harbored hatred in your wake
Above my crib you'd whisper all your wishes of my death
Drunk breath, cackling until your lungs had nothing left
You tried to buy my laughs as if your money could impress
Don't wanna hear you're sorry whore, I want you to confess
How you tried to break my neck, bragging to your friends
Beating me to sleep, I know the pain will never end
For the fools who say that this is now and that was only then
Will never understand how I've been robbed of my revenge
I could've drowned you in the tub and watched
Blown your skull away with shots

All you've ever known...
Everyone you've ever met...
Every fact you've memorized...
Every joke you've laughed at...
Because you don't remember them.
So, you're trapped.
On an island so small, you can barely stand up...
And thats all you have.
Every whisper of a secret...
Every taste that hits your tongue...
Every tear that rolls down your cheek...
Every smile you've caused...
To never exist.
Because to you, they never happened.
So, you don't have any children;
[When in reality, you have three]
You don't know where you're mother is buried;
[When she actually lives down the block]
And the only thing you remember...
The only thing that you could bring with you to the island...
Is the love of your life
[But everytime you see them, you think its your first meeting in 20 years]
And your ability to play piano
[But you don't remember who taught you.
Another Year, Missing YouHere we go, another year has passed,Another Year, Missing You3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So many things still remind me of you,
And I can't believe time has gone by so fast.
It's still hard to see the picture of your face,
Listen to singers who seem to have your voice,
But what hurts worse, is never again feeling your embrace.
I miss all the good times, Hell, even the bad,
Because even though there were tears and pain,
I still had my strong, loving dad.
And I sit, and do what I do every year,
Look at your picture, sing sad songs,
And wish so desperately that you were still here.
I love you so much, it's more than I can bear,
To not be able to talk to you,
And the way you'd playfully scare.
But more than anything I miss all of you,
What made you my dad,
Yet, somehow every year, I manage to pull through.
I miss you, and I wish you'd come home,
But I know the day will arrive,
When to the afterlife with you I'll come.

It's not something I often used to do.
But things have changed, we became close,
And though I tend to hide, this shows.
I can't help it, I like the company,
I like feeling like I am somebody.
And you have that effect, you do that to me,
And show me someone I never did see.
A side of me, rarely put out for show,
Someone I think I used to know.
Someone sweet and fun, I'm kinda me again.
Someone bouncy and playful despite the strain.
Too bad it's not quite what I had looked for,
But I enjoy this, I don't know if I need more.
Sure it'd be nice, to hold you and you be mine,
But none of that matters when our bodies entwine.
I don't think of it often, as neither are ready,
And though this is complicated, we hold steady.
What I think I love most, our friendship will still shine.
So I'll never have to worry if it is on the line.
So if you're wondering or worrying, have no fear,
Because as long as you're willing, I'll be here.
In whatever way you wish, whatever

Have you ever
Just walked away?
Though I've thought about it
My staggering worry
Has never allowed me to do so.
When I look to a door
Just a few feet away
I start to think.
My feet begin to guide me
Taking me slowly across the floor
Away from the reality behind me
And towards a new found adventure ahead.
Carefully stepping outside
I find I've altered this world
Simply by disobeying
An order it's given
My logical mind.
A sea surrounds
My simple home.
It is a desert?
My toes drag lightly
Through the hot sand
A liquid feel
Chilling me to the bone.
Are my choice
I wander a bit further
Making sure to keep my
Beginning in sight
To make sure I won't
Get lost on my journey.
Soon I start to notice things.
The strange beasts
Big and small
That I often swear I see
Out of the corner of my eye
They're less afraid
Willing to venture onto their territory.
They come to me

You want her, though she isn't true.

But sadly, this is no contest.
I understand, I hope you know,
It is something I try to show.
So you see and wouldn't fear,
When she decides to come near.
I can wait, this is certain.
And I don't wish to be a burden.
I don't think you can really see,
Just how much I'd like you with me.
Probably not best I'm writing this.
Because stating my feelings could go amiss.
Above all I wish for your friendship,
Even above a fruitful relationship.

Yet, a strong, destructive state of being.
It can break you, even if you're agile,
And if you're lucky, it could be very freeing.
Something defined with more than one definition,
Never completely explained, not everyone similar.
For some, this is something limited edition,
Others, alienated, silently love from afar.
Some receive everything they had ever expected,
And some give and give with nothing offered back.
Many are repeatedly cut down and rejected,
While others cut loose their problems with a smack.
Wondrous, glorious, and full of everlasting joy,
A happy union, no problems, no arguing and abuse.
With a male and a female, but what about boy with boy?
Or girl with girl, why disagree, why be so obtuse?
You can't help who you love, and who in turn loves you,
If you even truly feel it, this will knock you off your feet.
But a word of advice to all of you, to him or her be true,
Don't argue and hurt, and never lie or cheat.
Pay attention to your love

Hopefully there will be more success,
Though there seems to be a lot of mess.
