SplatterSplatter5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Sing a song of splatter,
sing a song of stain,
climbing up the ladder,
coming down again.
We can sit together
on the lowest rung -
coffee in the filter,
coffee on the tongue.
Is anything the matter?
We will start again,
with a song of splatter
and a song of stain.

I know painters paint it, composers play it, actors can act it...but what can writer's do?
Well, we can tell it in a story, we can convey it in a play, we can sing it in lyrics, and we can illustrate it in poems.
But, for the moment I am not a painter, a composer, an actor, or a writer...but I can explain it the only way I know how...
Frustratingly magnificent while also terribly unique.
Confusing and intriguing, and can also leave you weak.
Menacingly wonderful if not also specially designed,
All emotions put together, but right now they are all mine.
Rivaling with a person whom I've never seen before,
knowing that no matter what; I will always love him more.
Daunting and perilous, but sweet and caring too,
A feeling of elation when it means so much to you.
A rhythm in rhyme.
A feeling that can and will always transcend time.
The moment of that passing glance;
The crazy feeling of being lost in a trance....
The daydream of the soul's song,
The triumph and the e
Hate, hate, hateI hate having to speak to youHate, hate, hate9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But I hate when you ignore
I hate when you don't return my emails
And I hate when you don't call
I hate the way you avoid my eyes
When I'm trying to look into yours
And I hate what you say behind my back
And all the trouble that you cause
I hate the dot to dot acne just above your nose
And I hate your nearly-a-monobrow too
I hate the way you're so selfish
And how it always has to be about you
But mostly I hate that none of this is true
And the fact that I hate myself
For not being to hate you

as time colludes with your decision
past the point of swift revision
in the ambit of perdition
on this eventual occasion
when naught is left but dour persuasion
past the point of instigation
what will be your resolution
if my plea meets dissolution
and barren obscures this confusion
from this dire transmutation
before the callous castigation
and any further tribulation
if you heed not this premonition
then kismet in all its precision
will sanction our permanent partition
Soaring FreedomThe moon and stars gave a luminescent glow to the night sky.Soaring Freedom4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The crisp night air felt cool upon his face as he flew through it.
His hair flew back revealing his past, revealing his rise to fame.
On his broomstick he flew
Away from cares
Away from worries
He was free to roam the night skies, away from prying eyes.
This was the only time he was truly free.
The only time he could, himself be.
Teenage MistakeI'm going to makeTeenage Mistake9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A teenage mistake
And prove to everyone this life
Can be a fun path to take
So grab my hand
And I'll whisper into your ear
'lets stop the sands of time
And show the world what we're made of'
As longs as what could happen
And you love me as I love you
One kiss will seal our fate
Your arms are warm
All we have is tonight
We'll make this worthwhile
And remember it forever.
Regret can be healed by time
As can pain for the future
But if we can make this time wonderful
We can forget about the rest of our life
So lets make a teenage mistake
Close your eyes
And follow me
And I'll see you tomorrow.

there are days when my stomach is not tucked in
and these attempts at spanish translation are too feeble
to dredge up verb conjugations
and i am just a fool.
i tried walking off this stupor
but it was like skipping off a cliff
(too easy, and anyway the philosophers
in my mindtunnels were too fat
too heavy to make action practical)
it's a sluggish sort of progress,
this growth into an orange-maned
and daily i stoop to rebuild the walls of my illusions.
(because i want to keep this sunrise radiating
from my smile
and i want to stay happy.)
i try hard not to be a realist.

run out of love
we are children of the sea
oceans inside our

and drifting along rough sands.
i want to touch you
a hundred different ways,
to kiss you like i need it to breathe.
you just tell me about making magic
i can tell you about making love
(and how they are both the same).
i love you more than i love myself
and i wish that actually meant
something. instead i rely on
poorly structured letters
and wrap my head round the wildflowers
in hopes that we can lie
until it is uncertain where
i end and you begin.

the way your heart beats in my ribs,
around my spine,
you are magic.
love poemI love the way your eyes always shine,love poem9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I love the way you wont let go,
I love the way you tell me you're mine,
I love the way it's easy to show,
That most of all, I just love you.
It's true, I love every inch of you,
I'll love you when it's hard to sleep,
When my thoughts are shades of blue,
I'll love you even when the blue skies weep,
And our garden burns around us.
I dont know what I would ever do,
If I made you ever cry,
I never want to ever hurt you,
I dont want this to ever die,
And I dont want you to ever frown.
I'm so weak when I am with you,
One look and your eyes paralyze,
I'm no one else when I'm around you,
I dont need a masking false disguise,
Because I trust you most of all.
Red and pink and white lined tradition,
Symbolize the greatest emotion,
Valentine's day is but a transition,
Another good way to show my devotion,
To you and us and even the blue,
Anything as long as It is with you.
CadenzaSuppose each one of us older than the stars,Cadenza4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
suppose that we are other than the ragged beggars we seem,
suppose that our engulfing slumber, our inner darkness,
is constantly erupting with the vanity of dreams.
Consider those uncounted aeons swallowed in the oceans
of that virtuality, where we, the ever drowning mariners,
must cling to the absurd shapes we call reality.
Will we, unknowing captives, ever be free?
Has liberty become our cage of captivity?
Oh yes, we writhe, our nakedness become despair.
as our frenzied touching reveals that nothing's there.

and find pure innocence
The heart has been tried,
the poor mind scorched every second it lied
All for one forbidden moment
On your lips
You stole my fragile heart.We'd hit it off just great, I thoughtYou stole my fragile heart.4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You played the perfect part
Ensnared all my waking hours
And stole my fragile heart
You tricked me into trusting you
And blindly I believed
All the lies that you had fed to me
I was thoroughly deceived
You hurt me well and truly
With not a thought but to yourself
Our love, if you can call it that
Was a betrayal in itself
The minute I outlived my use
You left me standing there
No goodbye, nor apology
Just a vast pit of despair
You went straight back into her arms
As if nothing had happened
It was just a bit of fun to you
The reason your soul is blackened
It has taken time, but once again
My heart's begun to heal
The hole is slowly filling in
And the cracks started to seal
But then I saw you walk right by
A simple twist of fate
Where once your eyes were bright with life
They were now filled with hate
I don't know what she did to you
But I can guess that you're to blame
You brought this all upon your self
You have been played at your own game

I Cannot Describe How I FeltI Cannot Describe How I Felt9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It was so beautiful,
The way your body moved.
So slowly, so
Slowly your hand took mine.
I could feel your heartbeat in each fingertip.
I could feel each breath,
You turned so slowly to me.
Cautious, but ready.
Raising your eyes to mine,
Taking them in before they closed.
Your lips came to mine
So softly, taking in each point of pressure.
Together, we breathed
With surprising calm.
Shaking, you took my body to yours.
And I took yours in mine.
Free and unafraid.
You moved with such compassionate
I felt not exposed.
This was not an exposition of something hidden at all.
It was a revelation
Of the way things should be.
You held me.
I felt safe.
You held me.
I felt invincible.
You held me.
I felt passion.
You held me.
I felt loved.
You left me.
And I cannot describe how I felt.

Why can't I heal you
take away your pain
why can't I heal you
make you fine again
hate seeing you this way
when you're hurting inside
want to take it all away
any help I will provide
Why can't I save you
from demons of the heart
Why can't I save you
from being torn apart
I know it feels so bad
Shouldn't fight it alone
I know it makes you sad
Shouldn't be on your own
I see the pain in your eye
And it shouln't be there
Don't like to see you cry
But you know that I care
I want to fix your soul
Repair all that you are
I want to make you whole
As you are my only star

I Love The Way You Love MeI Love The Way You Love Me11 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I love the way I can talk to you
And say what's on my mind
I never have to look away
Or keep a thing inside
Tears fill my eyes when you're not around
Or when you just don't care
But I know in my heart you will do what's right
For me, you will always dare
Material things will never matter
As long as I have you
You make every day that passes
So much easier to get through
My worries disappear when you're around
No thoughts of pain or doubt
I feel your love when you hold me close
And kiss me if I pout
I don't care what they are talking about
All I care for is you
I'll jump off a building to show you my love
If that's what I have to do
I love you for everything that you are
Not what you promise to be
I know you can't see why or how
You're the most important thing to me

While ignorance surpasses empathy
I sing pass these tears that no one ever sees
Disappointment night after night
A sickness seems to get between me and what I love most
I've tried but it never seems like enough
I don't want to live like this
But this seems like the only life I know
I need the music to help me breathe
Though people say that I am a flame burnt out to soon
My time has come now
And I'm greeted at gates with a grim "welcome to the club"
