Somewhere Life is ValuedSomewhere in the night a child cries,
A woman weeps and someone dies.
Somewhere in the night, humanity hides.
Somewhere in the night , a soul screams,
As people fade and die, lost in dreams.
Somewhere in the night, reality lives.
Somewhere in the night loneliness dwells,
As people die, no sounding bells.
Somewhere in the night, she dies alone.
Somewhere in the night ...
Where is the light?
Girl of DeathGirl of deathGirl of Death4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
With the skin of lace,
Will you lie with me?
In my final resting place.
Your fingers on mine,
Your lips as well.
Be my drop of poison,
In this burning Hell.
Girl of death
With eyes of black,
Look with me,
On the joy we lack.
Watch with me,
Look at their empty souls,
With their hearts,
As dark as coals.
Girl of death
With blood of stone,
Does it really hurt,
To be so alone
I'm here with you
No matter the pain,
We shall join our hands
Together in this forgotten land.
The Pain of A MadmanTrapped inside my own headThe Pain of A Madman4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
With nothing but my own fevered dreams to comfort me.
I know the pain of the madman;
He lives inside of me.
I've felt the strength of demons
And the weakness of self- preservation.
And hope. Hope.
Hey, parents, do you know where your kids are tonight?
Are they locked away inside of themselves?
Are their minds slipping away?
Mama hen, mama hen . . .
The fox has taken your baby again.
Precious minds are a shame to waste
Memories are forgotten in haste.
I am losing all that is me . . .
Yet gaining something entirely different.
Something that acts like an animal
And speaks like God.
Comforts me like a best friend
And loves me like its child.
I am its child.
An innocent brat, ready for its teachings.
Ready to do what is told to me.
Believing all that is said to me.
Taking in all.
And living off of my fevered dreams.
Beautiful WonderlandThere's a world you need to seeBeautiful Wonderland4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Just beyond your eyes
Where everyone lives and no one ever dies.
Through the sky and beyond the moon
With giant flowers
And trees that touch the sun
A whole planet
where nobody fits and everyone belongs.
And the children never die
And the adults never cry
You can be and do whatever you want.
It's a sacred place
Not to be invaded by reality
Where only those uncorrupted can explore.
A midnight city
A high-speed race
A never ending forest of wondrous creatures.
And you never have to come down
And Mario and Luigi would be jealous
There are no clouds, only bright blue skies.
Just beyond your reach
Out of your touch
In a place beyond your mind and senses.
If it does not exist in any way,
How come we spend so much time escaping to such a place
That we can't see, can't hear, can't touch?
Up through the sky
The best lie never told
You can fall in love or make enemies
So let's fly to this hidden dimension
Where you will never die
Or face those awful
I hurt so no one else shouldI keep thinking that it will be the end; that tonight will be the night.I hurt so no one else should5 years ago in Scraps More Like This
The night where everyone lives in darkness. An everlasting night.
I want it to come I wish for it to come, a time when everyone suffers but I always find myself crying whispering for that to never happen, for no one else to suffer.
I'll stay up all night trying to undo the reckless wish I made and asking for all the pain and agony and suffering to be given to me so that no one else will feel it.
I wish for an everlasting night and then ask for an everlasting day where it will just be me in some dark corner of the universe suffering so that no one else has to.
And then the sun rises.
Slowly and subtly.
And I realise that while I'm here in pain everyone else is sound asleep.
Both my wishes are true; I have the night while everyone else has the day. The darker the night, the brighter the dawn.
I'm the one that steals the pain during the night and I'm the one who gets to see the dawn. I suffer but I see what no one el

and also the sorrow.
She doesn't want to go on.
So she prays for a better tomorrow.
It's hard for her to cope.
She'd like to runaway.
In her heart she knows
that she can't stay.
You can see the sadness
deep within her eyes.
She would like to stop the madness,
but instead, she just cries.
She prays for strength to move ahead.
To survive another day.
She pleads for the courage to be brave
so she can simply walk away.

Why must you haunt me so?
I hate you and always will.
You only bring me pain.
Yet I can not help but want you.
Do you hear that? The breathing has stopped.
You fascinate me with your sharp edges and obvious use.
No sound comes from the chest cavity.
Your make wonderful music.
Maybe she is hiding.
How am I to match that wonderful hymn?
But from what? Has her dad gone crazy again?
But with silence....
Maybe she- Wait listen closely...What is that sound?
I gasp in pain. No I must not interrupt the symphony of heart beats pounding my head.
It is a small sound....A sound more breathtaking then any music.
To keep my vow of silence I will cut those that gave me my noise.
Yes....It is the sound of a freed bird.... A bird that was in captivity for far too long.
The blood rushes clouding my vision with red but I don't need my sight anymore....
I have the silence....
I Miss YouA dryness of my throat.I Miss You4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A tingling of my skin.
A tremor down my back.
Will it all be over then?
A laugh building.
A sob- just the same.
I can't fight this feeling
Of being the one to blame.
I've fought with you.
I've loved you with all my heart.
You were my best friend.
Now it's all fallen apart.
I wish you were still here.
Just one hour more.
To make it all up to you.
And fix what was before.

You've seemed to forget what's true.
My wrists continue to bleed,
Is that enough blood for you?
My hand reaches toward my mouth.
Holding my tiny, numbing device.
I swallow now, pushing away the pain.
Will this be enough to suffice?
My head is spinning in circles.
All vision is blurred.
While I take another swig from that bottle.
Is it enough that my words are slurred?
My fists are clenched.
As I hold back every scream.
While you're pushing on top of me.
Is it enough that this isn't a dream?

I'm sorry I felt the need to explore
I'm sorry you trusted in me
I'm sorry I wasn't what you wanted me to be
I'm sorry I was wrong
I'm sorry it took me so damn long
I'm sorry you could never brag
I'm sorry you could only nag
I'm sorry I lied to your face
I'm sorry I couldn't fit in at that damn place
I'm sorry about my grades
I'm sorry about all those blades
I'm sorry I took advantage of you
I'm sorry my accomplishments are few
I'm sorry I was such a joke
I'm sorry I made you want to choke
I'm sorry I was never around
I'm sorry I could never be found
I'm sorry I didn't belong
I'm sorry had this prolonged
I'm sorry that it didn't show
But I was going through a lot you know
And nothing I've said to you is true
Because really, it was your fault too
So I'd say I'm sorry I got shot
But the truth is, I'm really not
Cause here I'm finally free
The one place I'm truly me
There's no need to wipe at tears you'll never shed
You've always known I'd be better
You Found Me"What's your name?" He asked quietly, as he cleaned my wrist with bottled water.You Found Me4 years ago in Emotional More Like This
I didn't respond. I just watched the movements of his hands without emotion. Where did all the numbness come from? He glanced up at me, over top of the frames of his Aviators.
"Is it too tight?" he pulled the fabric through, tying the bandana. I shook my head. Crusted streaks stained my cheeks. I bet my mascara still looked alright though. Best five bucks I ever spent. He pulled a bracelet over a lump in the material gently. A woman jogged through the woods on the other side of the stream. She didn't notice us. Not that she would have done anything anyway. The breeze spread my bangs out on my forehead, stray hairs touched my eyes. I blinked.
My fingers twitched, they felt cold, they always did. His hand brushed over them. Warmth, it felt so good for such a brief touch.
"Everything's so numb and dark." I whispered unintentionally. He didn't answer; instead he closed his fingers around mine. I glanced at him
You Don't Know MeI walk you by and whispers startYou Don't Know Me4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Cold, harsh words like daggers stab
Into a place once held a heart.
Saying "stupid," "faggot," "fattest whore,"
I cannot hear them,
I must implore you to please stop your hatred
Stop the pain.
Your words are buried in my veins
Slitting deep inside of me
Tearing thoughts I hope to be.
I twist your words deeper still
Echo them in my voice.
I wish to swallow all my pills
To numb myself, until I'm free
Of all whispers
The pain you cause
And all the chances you had to stop and help me up
Instead of digging into these cuts
You lash and beat all that I am
And try to break all I will be
But then I remember
You don't know me.
It's been years since we first met
You gave me birth,
you called me friend,
you are everything I am.
You are the people I'm suppose to love
But when you've shown me all this hate
I begin to doubt that I feel that
I tilt my head and truly think
Why should I?
You try to hurt; belittle me,
But I crawl back it's so absurd

Don't you see it
Don't you feel that spark
Please tell me you remember anything
I know not all of it was good
But, that doesn't mean you can throw it away
You are my other half
The one that I gave all of myself to
Please, look me in the eyes
Tell me you remember all the pain
But, don't regret it because it all meant something
It meant just a moment of our happiness
With the tilt of the head
The glazed eyes set on me
I really feel it, that piercing pain
You really have forgot it all
Please try to remember
I don't want you to leave me here
When you chose the path that was never meant
One that you should never walk
When I say I love you
You take my hand and tell me this is wrong
That my heart belongs to another
But, you are wrong...
You have really forgot
Every action led me to you
Everything I worked for, was for a spot next to you
You have forgotten about us
Even though you don't remember, it doesn't change
And my will
You will remember

Only time is forever
You must all remember
That change takes time
I may say farewell
I may leave you there
You may feel abandoned
But my darling child
Listen to my words
Keep wishing on that star
Keep on smiling
You must move on
Do not dwindle on the sorrow
Look for tomorrow
Don't search for the evasive
Search for the obvious
For I will say one last time
Goodbyes are not forever

but they've not a care to spare.
And who am I, to wonder why
they want to be unaware
of the loneliness and the want
hidden by every person's glares?
So many of us walk on by,
with furtively downcast eyes,
to act like we cannot see
that every person on this earth,
every person away at sea,
every person who's wished to fly
in the cloud-filled skies
is part of one humanity.

Ominous BeingBy day he smiles,Ominous Being4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Slapping on a mask,
He hopes none find phony.
Who would want to see
The beast beneath his disguise?
Even he himself finds the face
That resides under his masquerade
To be utterly revolting.
It's sickening, oh so frightening.
So by night he slithers,
Letting his true self free.
How foolish can this world get?
He questions this planet
And those who reside here.
They let a monster such as him
Slink and slide into their lives,
Unaware of the horrors that he carries.
But there is none he questions
More than himself,
A deadly beast, danger to all,
And worst yet,
Destined to be alone.
For he was in love, oh yes,
In love with a maiden
Whose beauty compared to no other.
Where was this fair creature now?
Her body lay rotting in her cottage,
Her blood in the belly of the brute,
The man she called lover.
Struck with fear he was at what he'd done;
He couldn't stop, not even for her.
A monster is a monster,
No matter how in love they are.

A Sparkling VisionI put into your mind a vision,A Sparkling Vision6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Could dull mean uninispired?,
Might a jewel refuse to glisten?,
Whether ruby or sapphire,
Will this jewel be a rose?,
Inner beauty reflecting the outside,
Thorns guard the uninviting pose,
Shyness begs the stem to hide,
The eyes illustrate a trace of air,
When the protective thorns are shed,
Vulnerability no longer there,
I think myself not misled,
Has an abundance to offer now truth be told,
The human form of a countenance fair,
Wipe your eyes and behold,
The vision should now be clear.

left city streets in shame
and maimed the victors with thorns,
just to make you believe
in angels again.
Truth was never my home,
but I sought your history
in every face that fell
from too much grace and favor
or gazed upon the living
like so much cattle.
And I could feel you
time's sharp little acrobat
but nothing can grow in earth
this meek and soiled;
and my hands are bloodied
by the cries
of those you left starving.
