I was sitting silently on the edge of my bed. I stood up and watched out of the window, the wind
and rain was just crazy. Wind bending the trees to their braking point and rain just pouring down. All
of a suddenly all of it went quiet. I could only hear clock ticking. Click-Clack. And then blinding bright
light flashed over the sky. I was blinded by it and i turned away. Trying to get some sight back. I
rubbed my eyes and as i turned my head back up. Wind had broken one of the trees and it was
falling right into my window. My pupils dilated and i turned away. It all seemed to happen in slow
motion. I took to steps and i jumped out of the way. Tree came with such a force that it shattered
the windows of the entire floor. There were screaming and moaning.
When i opened my eyes it was morning, i was covered in shrapnel of the house. Tree had
demolished half of the wall. I stood up and swept myself clean. I noticed that my clock had stopped
working. I just thought it was because of a tree.
Please Love MeOh DaddyPlease Love Me2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Why don't you love me
I do what I can
I try my best
But you just yell at my work
And you put down the rest
I try not to cry
I try not to scream
I never want to see
me own tears stream
I'm a lot like you
Up to my crazy hair
I love you with all my heart
But do you even care
You yell and I sigh
Cos I never want you to see me cry
It wells in my throat
My sobs of anger and fear
Sometimes I wish you never met Mama
Cos then I wouldn't be here
Everytime I screw up
I feel so ashamed
I let you know I love you
Why won't you do the same
My heart just cracked and shattered
When you call me dumb
Whenever you put down my jokes
I just feel so numb
I wish I knew what goes on
Up inside your mind
Is there anything good about me
That I could hope to find
You don't seem to see me the way I see you
You don't seem to love me the way I do you
I everything in my power
Just to make you proud
But when you say I'm stupid
I become lost in the crowd
I'd do anything for your love
To know that your care

I can't reach you, I can't touch the sky
My wings are broken, too imperfect
You're soaring above the clouds, dancing in their midst
Why can't you hear me, I'm only screaming your name
But I can't blame you when you just turn away.
ComplacencyA captivating calamity of the mindComplacency2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
MalevolenceDisguised as benevolence
It's poisonous poise destroys you
It embraces you
And escapes you
You'll pursue it
Ensue it without question
As it continues to elude you
Delude youAnd you've never construed
That there's no end
To the amount you're willing to bend
Til you breakUnmendable
Your destruction is indispensable
Or so it seemsForever the forgiver of faults
NonsensicalAs they may have been.
How Could I Be Expected To Know?I saw the shadow on the concrete divineHow Could I Be Expected To Know?2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Now the image flickers in the back of my mind
The tree so bare, so old
The shadow that danced with the wind; so cold
I sat there thinking; my mind was trapped in my soul
Now I sit here blinking, pondering; what about?
How could I be expected to know...
The black floated around me, like a feather
It danced in those worn eyes of mine
Somehow the image drove away the numb which for me is in vogue
Now it is imprinted in my brain, why?
How could I be expected to know....
The prickling grey grass was near, so I picked up a strand
The reminder of things that once were, I could feel them in my hand
Twirling the tender blade like a familiar thing, so old
I cannot be expected to reveal what I apparently show
I sat there thinking; the smoke gagged me, playfully tickling my throat
How may I interpret what I saw smeared in the white of imaginary snow?
Now I sit here lying, weeping; what is to come about?
How could I be expected to know...
AngelTonight, an angel diedAngel2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She was my friend
She was beautiful
She was amazing
She was my angel
I've never felt so much pain
I've never felt so much fear
As what I feel tonight
Because you're gone
And I know you can't come back
My heart is beating faster
My eyes are growing glassy
I just need a sign
I need to know you're safe
That you're alright again
So you can be here in my arms
You've gone tonight
My love has gone
My angel died tonight
And she will never come back
Death can take me
Because now feel no love in this world
Make it swift
So I can see my angel once more
HeavenHeaven is where your arms are,Heaven2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
No matter how near or far
You say you will always wait
Because you believe in fate.
Your voice, I remember,
Last time I heard from you in the chilling December
It lit a flame for my heart to dwell
Am I still under your spell?
Heaven's feathery embrace
You assure me it's not a race.
You can't wait to hold me
Can't wait to see my face.
But does not every rose have thorns?
Yet I sit here, waiting, and yearn
For Heaven to open its ivory doors
To let my soul find its core.
Farewell: A RelapseIn darknessFarewell: A Relapse2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sharp metal piece
Against pale throat
In darkness, I wait
For the slight possibility
That it's not my time
Into darkness, I fall
No sign or message
Sorrow as I accept
That my presense
Is neither wanted nor needed
No tears will be shed
Fall from the skyAs I flyFall from the sky2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
under light blue sky
what if the plane should fall,
what if my last moments
were to arrive
Who could tell you
that today was our last?
That you'd need to face
I'm safe and sound
so never mind.
Just that the thought
crossed my mind..
While we fight for eternity,
should we be worried about today?
SyllableCould I be the problemSyllable2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A simple word,
A single syllable
Powerful and magical
Dangerous and potent
I spoke them easily before
Believe me, I never meant themBut I cant talk,
My words silence me
I dont want this to end
But I cant speak the truth
Because I dont want to risk this
Not this, anything but this
Speech is imperfect
Shattered and stunted
But perfect when it's needed most
I value you above most others
Youre up there with my angels
But I have the power to burn your wings
Am I the problem
Is this the problem?
Are we both protecting ourselves too much?
A Syllable of pain
A syllable of safety
What is it to you?
soft yet untameddawn comes first as a phantomsoft yet untamed2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
seeping steadily to the core of
night's tumbling fantasies, dew
climbing dazed folds of lovers' sheets
and tangling in the midst
of the landscapes they cup
(reverent oils of limbs both
and recklessly strewn);
like a breath of unwanted light,
it will sing those shadow-crusts
of fire back into sanity.
it will catch like plumes between
smokers' teeth, in the gnarled fists of
baby's furling breaths as they stamp the sky,
become sunrise's clouds and are swept
out to sea,
dissembling from stagnant shapes
(tea leaves afleck with tales of future woe)
into the quiet tang of sweet rebellion
stilling the waves and their silver-faced mistress,
befuddling the fourth dimension and arcing back
to the land of the no-man we once
they will flood dawn's blurring grey wrists with memories;
in its festering breezes, they'll ply its storm-freckled skin with
woollen kisses, water-winged sighs
before they, too, fade into shells
and as the city succu

It's foggy outside
Everything is shrouded in gloom
A normal flashlight can't penetrate the mist
Nor can a floodlight
Or even the headlights of the vehicles on the road
There could be all manner of unpleasant things out there
All waiting patiently for me to leave the house
And walk right into their trap
They don't want you, though
They just want me
And so I'm sure you'll be fine
It's just a trip to the grocery store, after all
Facing RealityIt's hiding who you really are,because the people who love you mostFacing Reality2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Wouldn't love you so much if they knew the truth
It's watching new wounds form over long closed scars
Because old hurts always come back to haunt you
And the people who hurt you before
Always come back for more
It's when you're living a lie
And no matter how hard you try
You can't change the fact that
You aren't really good enough
It's when you've given up,and finally
You look and see
You'll always be alone
A Girl's Best FriendA girl's best friend is someone she can trust,A Girl's Best Friend2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Someone who will not betray her or disappear.
A girl's best friend is someone she can love,
Who she can always take pleasure in being with.
A girl's best friend is just as vile as she,
Someone who won't run away from her darkness.
A girl's best friend stands out as much as she,
With the ability to overwhelm all who behold it.
A girl's best friend is what she holds most dear,
Yet it isn't money, and it isn't happiness.
A girl's best friend is her very own revenge.
