Keep Me AlivePut your hand to my chest.Keep Me Alive5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Please, I need this.
I need you.
I need that one thing that'll make me feel alive.
Make me feel alive again.
I'm dying, darling.
Can't you save me?
Won't you see the undying love I give you?
No matter what, I always will.
I would die for you,
I would kill for you.
Every time I see you talk to someone else,
I feel this burning hate for them.
Doesn't even matter who.
I just do.
I guess I'm possessive,
But how am I possessive over something I don't have?
But that was a long time ago,
I miss that.
Quite a bit.
A lot, actually.
Ok, an enormous amount.
It feels as though I'm being flooded by darkness.
I still dream about you.
Don't look at me like that.
I'm serious, really.
There's this one,
Where you're in this stark black dress,
Your eyes are glistening,
And your skin is almost glowing.
We're in this room void of anything,
You walk up to me,
And brush the hair away from my face.
As I just stand there,
Heart ready to burst,

What scares you doesn't always scare me.
You were staring blankly outside your window, sighing disappointedly. It was finally Halloween, your favorite holiday that you had been waiting for all year. But, it was raining todaywait, no. There was a giant storm today, ruining all your plans for this special day.
Your parents were out to have dinner. They had asked if you would like to come with them, but you refused. You couldn't waste your favorite holiday staying with your parents only for some fancy dinner. That was no Halloween. You had agreed to go trick-or-treating with Alfred today, and that was the reason why you had dressed up in your favorite witch costume. You sighed again. It was no question that you had to cancel all your wonderful plans you had arranged for days.
You suddenly heard a loud knock on the door, more like a bang. You stood up curiously. Who could be visiting at this kind of weather?
Another loud banging was heard, snapping you
VoidIt is all so much easier,Void5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
When effort is erased.
No cries in your ears,
No sins you can taste.
No pressure of time,
No rushing nor haste.
Every feeling you had,
Can slowly be replaced.
In voids filled with nothing,
There exists no such pain.
Not a hint of a storm,
Not a lone drop of rain.
In you're own little world,
You're never insane.
If nothing is done,
Nothing is in vain.
Hidden deep in your head,
In the depths of your mind.
There exists a place,
I pray you may find.
Filled with no bit of sorrow,
No hurt of any kind.
And as you enter this place,
You leave your troubles behind
You ascend to the void,
Where everything is okay.
To where shadows and darkness,
Never twist through your days.
Where there is no pain,
No skies filled of gray.
No struggles nor battles,
In life's pointless fray.
Get AwayA ray of sun behind the clouds,Get Away5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
True happiness, never allowed.
Trapped behind smoke away from light,
Nothing I ever do is right.
Everything I touch turns to rust
And my hopes fade into the dust.
So run away so very far,
Or you'll be trapped inside my scar.
And don't you say.
I am always here for you.
It's all in vain,
I live in pain.
That is all that I can hold true.
I'm trapped behind this iron gate,
Imprisoned by despair and hate.
I held the key once in my hand,
But it fall apart to bits of sand.
I'll spend my days strewn on the ground,
No helpings hands ever to be found.
And it will always be this way,
No matter what I do or say.
From my decay,
I fuck up everything I do.
Leave me here,
And don't come near.
The decay might just spread to you.
FalsehoodsI'm through with you,Falsehoods5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
And everything you do.
You wanna kill my soul?
You wanna play the role?
Of a little spy,
With a hidden lie.
Wanna stab my back?
Well I'll push right back!
With a vicious cycle turning round,
You try to hide without a sound.
But I know exactly what you said,
You might as well leave me for dead.
These falsehoods gash and rip and gore.
But you know what?
I don't care anymore.

We Roll Out Of BedAnd we roll out of bed everyday,We Roll Out Of Bed5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Even though we know,
And in spite of the nagging voice,
That tells us no matter what we do,
It's never enough.
We roll out of bed,
In face of an unloving earth.
Despite a world where your friend would stab your back in a second,
If it meant they could better themselves.
We roll out into a world,
Void of loyalty.
Void of purity.
Void of any bit of goodness buried deep within a heart.
We roll into a world,
That'll rip us apart without a second thought,
And leave us bleeding and begging for mercy.
We roll into a fight we never win.
But that's life,
No one sad it was pretty.
Homophobes Burn TooIn a land where all men are created equal,Homophobes Burn Too5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Why am I besmirched?
Why am I a stigma?
Can't you see the hurt?
If all men are created equal,
Why am I hated?
Why can't I live in peace?
Without fear of being beaten,
Simply because I'm me.
Why can't I marry who I want?
Love knows not a gender.
I'm a threat to all your families?
Shut those lies you render.
If all men are created equal,
Why am I dishonored?
It stops now.
There's nothing "glamorous" about it,
So stow your little stigma.
Why complain of a media's bulge,
When you just bring us down.
Don't you say there's a cure,
It's who we are, darling.
It's as if I said we made vaccines,
To cure your narrow-mind,
And ease your ignorance.
If God loves us all,
Then why does he hate the fags?
Were we made this way,
To burn in hell?
I refuse to believe that.
If there's a God,
He loves us all.
Last time I checked,
There was a little thing called,
"Love thy neighbor".
And even if he isn't the same,
You respect him, you honor hi
Upgrade MeI am a phoenix,Upgrade Me5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I rise from the ashes.
I never die,
I simply upgrade.
This version of me,
More adept to take whatever you throw at me,
And throw it right back.
You can't kill me,
I've been transformed and molded,
So many times,
Not even I know what I truly am.
I started as a faulty prototype,
Clumsy and weak.
But look at me now!
Power courses through my veins.
My senses sharpen every second,
I become more agile with very step,
And evolve with every new dawn,
All enclosed in such a handsome casing.
You can't stop me.
Nothing can stop me.
Not even I could,
Not that I want to.
Even as we speak,
Every piece of me is advancing.
Working in perfect unison,
Like the ultimate machine.
By next time you see me,
I'll have upgraded yet again.
My body adapted to whatever the world tosses,
And the old me gone.
A distant memory never to be seen again.

DoItForTheLulz x FlowingAwayThe following is to be read in the voice of Morgan Freeman.DoItForTheLulz x FlowingAway5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
FlowingAway battled internally with his innermost feelings, but eventually his raging dilemma gave way to a smouldering passion, the likes of which the world has never seen before. His throat ran dry, his fingers twitched as electrical impulses ran through his entire body, and his frontal lobe erupted with images of DoItFortheLulz, sprawled in revealing poses.
Allowing DoItForTheLulz to brush his fingers through his flowing hair, FlowingAway looked into his lover's eyes and smiled.
"I love you, DoItForTheLulz," his whispered hoarsely, "I've never been more sure that someone was right for me. I need you in my life, and if you listen to your heart, I think you'll feel the same way."
DoItForTheLulz smiled gently, taking FlowingAway's hand and leading him to the back room.
"I've got something you might like," DoItForTheLulz chuckled demurely. "It's made of leather, and it's covered in zips and buckles..." As he pu
Being Gay Is A ChoiceI chose this way of life.Being Gay Is A Choice4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I chose to be ostracized by the general public.
I chose to live in a way,
My parents want to kill me for,
And my family wants to disown me.
I chose this way,
Where no matter how good I am,
How caring or faithful,
My place of worship,
Says I'll rot in hell.
I chose to put up with,
All of the heckling,
Fag, Homo, Queer.
Yup, I chose that all.
I chose a way,
Where in most places,
I can't marry someone,
I love with all my heart.
I chose to live my life,
So that if I want to bring in a child,
The world will scorn me,
And deny me a family of my own.
I chose to be treated as sub-human,
By the majority of this earth.
I mean, who needs basic rights?
I sure don't.
Don't you see the logic?
Who wouldn't chose this way?
Look at all these lovely perks,
I chose to be a gay.

she met him when she was fifteen, stupid, and willing to do anything to get out of her own head. it was winter, new snow sticking to the ground in snowbanks - like a naked blanket, cold on cold with ice. houses were lined up on the streets, chimneys blaring smoke, colors sticking out against the sky's dull grays. cars rolled by, marking the streets all with the same, parallel tracks, like fingerprints with chains attached. thick exhaust fills her senses.
he seemed weird to her. not because of his cocky, laid-back appearance, but because of the complete fresh and virgin ardor he gave her. it wasn't that kind of sense you get when you're born - the average, cliche smell, taste, touch, sight - but when you pass the age of twelve or thirteen.
he was the untouchable, the near-unforgivable. the sweet fruit to adolescence. the thing you taste when you want something new - lips on lips, tongues tying, tugging on piercings - the umph to the skinny jeans, the belt loops

We'll live together
We'll leave this place
And go where nobody knows us
Even if I can't,

When this is all over,
We'll be together always
I'll come back to you,
And it'll be just us
Someday, this war will end.
Everything is going to be all right

All I see is darkness. Nothing more, nothing less.
Drops of rain fall from the sky hitting shamefully the ruined earth.
Dust covers us all. From dust we rise, to dust we return. Funny, isn't it?
An odd smell, probably blood, covers my whole unmoving body with a controlling roughness and intoxicating isolation.
I am alone.
Alone here to face what was predestined for me to face. Finally, after all this time, I get what I don't want to think of, because I know that I am guilty.
I know what I've done.
I know what I haven't done.
I know now where I made horrible, imminent mistakes and where I did nothing at all to hind this cycle of destruction that has caused so many people
