Where I am knownMy heart is at homeWhere I am known2 years ago in Scraps More Like This
in breezy points,
for it knows not warmth
to be comfortably smothered.
but my soul feels most safe
when hidden away,
for it fears the commitment
of being committed.
and what of me?
I feel most safe
inside phantoms of darkness,
where one cannnot know my craving…
for I crave the destructing
presence of company…
always aching, itching,
The KeyThere's a key that I've hidden away.The Key2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Beneath the trinkets and lace.
I've kept it buried deep.
In hopes no one will find it's hiding place.
It holds treasure.
That's rarely been touched.
I've kept it hidden.
It's been shattered enough.
If by some unusual miracle.
You stumble by it's place of rest.
Hold it safely in your hands.
And never let it go.

I just reaped what I sow.
And so this is this the end.
I'm gonna write again.
Keep on DreamingThere are dreams in this worldKeep on Dreaming3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Dreams of anything and everyone
Dreams are more than we believe
More than we actually dream
With a bit of faith
Dreams can become reality
Dream on, keep dreaming
You never know where those dreams may go.
Dreams change the world
Dreams can do anything
Dreams created the world
As everything that ever is, or was,
Began with a dream.
Keep on dreaming~
What of Beauty?Beauty, to us, is what comes in the nightWhat of Beauty?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
What was abused, trampled over, corseted tight
But broke free to take once more flight
Beauty, to me, is what comes inner-out
What beast, whose talons have clutched it?
What jealousy or poetry lies under the gash?
Beauty is a tomb for the trembling, sweetest of hearts
So i shall speak words of fire,
and instill them in the pearly fabric of your back
You mustn't forget that beauty, terrible, trembling
Beauty never liked me,
... and never might

That the clues I leave
Are really just holes
Just emptying my soul
Could it be
That no one can see
The pictures I draw
Of the things I saw
Could it be that
I write things people forget
And the things I say
Are forgotten within a day
Could it be that
Reading the things I write
And I just don't know it yet
Could it be
You can't understand me
And all my dreams
Aren't possible in this reality
Could it be
That I don't know myself
That I can't actually ever say
What I want to say
Could it be
That you are all deaf
And there is no reason left
To go on with me and continue talking
Could it be
That I just don't know
And I'll never know if I keep going
And that the taps of my feet just stopped
Could it be
That I can't go on
Can't move forward without my soul
And the words I can't seem to get across
Could it be
That I don't really want you to see
So I put up a veil of pretty words
So that you'll leave me be and forget I ever left you something to read?
The Temple From My DreamsIn the centerThe Temple From My Dreams2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Of the olive hued swamp,
Lies a temple made of stone,
Eroded away over the years.
Moss grows in the creases
Abandoned and left a mystery.
The temple calls me,
Tempting me to explore,
Even uncover what lies within.
Yet, everytime I get close,
Dead in my tracks.
And I turn away.
One time I watched a maiden,
Pale with long dark hair.
She stumbled out of the temple,
Failing to notice me.
She reached the edge of the swamp,
And just like that,
My dad has offered,
Even my peers have offered,
To travel into the temple with me.
But they can't.
They don't see the temple,
It doesn't call them.
Eventaully, I will have to be brave,
Risk everything I have.
I have to travel by myself.
The temple wants me,
Maybe as a sacrifice,
Maybe even to save me.
I can't stop in the swamp

They call me heartless
And I know, it's true
For I had buried it on the same day
and in the same grave that consumed you
It's just that...
I found it returning to me
for that one moment, after eleven years
When I sat by you today
I LOVE YOU
AND I MISS YOU!
So, please take it back with you
For it was your parting gift
And I have no right to keep it

I want to remember you like this.
Your skin flush.
Mouth unable to speak.
You're mine now.
My helpless doll.
I've never wanted anyone so much.
You're better than the others.
A golden trophy among the silver.
I'll never let you fade.
I know it hurts.
The blood will stop soon.
A little pinch.
You smell so sweet.
I place my hand over your eyes to shield the light.
Your world will be dark soon.
It all will be.
Let go, my love.

Cracked and scared over and over again
So many made by one

But it just stops
It only beats for the one and only
But no beat is returned
Forever… it beats alone

When I die--I don't wantWhen I die--3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
the last thing I see
to be a fan, spinning
round and round,
or an off white ceiling.
The smell of clean death
Hospital beds. I want a kiss
to steal my last breath
Like they do in the movies.
For those who know me:
I want to die happy
with music from the
'Top 25' of my ipod
played at my funeral.
And I don't care
if they don't make sense.
Because that was me!
I was an old soul,
a mess of puzzle pieces
and confusing metaphors
all jumbled up into one package.
Hinata's PoemI watch you try to save the dayHinata's Poem2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Surrounded by the skies of grey
You try and try with all your heart
It doesn't work so you restart
I watch and watch as you rebound
But Pein has pushed you to the ground
My heart is torn as you go down
I feel as though I'm being drown
I hope and pray you'll be alright
But now I have to join the fight
I know I'm weak but I must try
And you're the only reason why
I try and try with all my heart
But he's too good to fall apart
It's not too long before I'm down
It feels again as though I've drown
I couldn't stop him that is true
My only wish was saving you
I know you'll break the painful wall
I know that now you'll save us all
I feel your power all around
To you my love my heart is bound
You fight and fight and take him down
And though you beat him you still frown
Your back is turned you're feeling blue
And your beloved runs to you
Everyone cheers for your great win
And you can't help but turn and grin
You feel as if you're one of them
Like you're some kind
Describe Your LifeDescribe Your Life.Describe Your Life2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
From your pre-destined slumber.
Life's lottery has selected your number.
Your way through this world.
These feelings can't be bought nor sold.
Through the hardships and pain.
These feelings have proven impossible to tame.
Every story must have an end.
Life is one process which is impossible to extend.
There are countless words to describe your life.
Living is something you cannot experience twice.
Make mistakes, learn from them and prosper.
We are all apart of an ever changing roster.
Enjoy the time that we have here.
Take no notice of the conclusion that draws near.
Death will be heard by the tolerant ear.
The QuietTape covers my mouthThe Quiet3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Tears streak from my eyes
I wish that I could speak
If even to tell a lie
But there's a stinging inside
That holds me in the silence
Too scared to speak submission
Too weak to speak defiance
So just hold me, please
And don't put up a fight
Just stay by me in the quiet
Of the long and evil night.

Forget about the good times,
Forget about the bad,
Forget about your face,
The memories we have,
But I cant.
Your face follows me,
Haunts my slumber in my dreams
Reflects in the pieces of my heart,
It's every where to me.
I hear your voice,
When no one is there,
The shadows seem to speak,
They call to me,
There is nothing that I want to keep,
I want you to take all your memories,
And the pain you left with me.

Ten Ways of Looking at FearTen Ways of Looking at FearTen Ways of Looking at Fear3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
God's way of keeping us in line.
The curse of mankind-
Preventing everyone from their dreams-
Resides with the ghostly hand
Death's eternal partner
In the never ending dance called life
Silent and unforgiving,
The fear of death that reigns supreme.
A motivator for some,
The bane of existence for others.
Fear provides gentle nudges,
Or extreme shoves
To keep going.
Keeping us alive.
There would be no boundaries
Between the possible
And the wise.
The limits on the word
Restricting us only to what we dare to do...
To dare to dream...
Only to be destroyed by fear.
Quickly followed by
The joy of overcoming it.
Your opponent in a game of poker,
Yet utterly unreadable.
You'll never know
When fear will strike.
The necessary gateway to courage.
Empty MattersIt happened at nightEmpty Matters3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Here in the moonlight
Always that is the way
Nothing at all evil can thrive
With the full heated drive
Of a heart plump with blood
It was not evil, not good
But it happened, right here it stood
In the moonlight
Once on a night
A tale so low
It lies buried beneath ages of rust
It can be said that it is but dust
A piece woven from cloth
Snipped off, eaten through by the moth
Time nibbling, biting, blurring, and fading
A tale so long forgotten
It isn't here now.
