OuroborosThe Cycle begins at the rise of sun,
ending during the descent of the moon.
The dragon that consumes its barbed tail,
the sands of time, and wheel forever turning.
Unconscious is the flow, ascension.
Mindless is the resistance to the wheel.
But in vain, your useless endeavor ends.
It is the sand that slips through your fingers.
Nothing lies behind, but these pale memories.
What exactly is the meaning of this?
You have made life a thief and murderer.
You let the weak be denied and fall behind.
A Question buried in the cold sands
and a thousand Answers we left below.
Ashes to BlazesAshes to Blazes4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Lost in the darkness, feeling so cold
My life enfolds
Walking the path of horrors untold
I'm breaking the threshold
Kneeling before The Being of Old
He's looking for a heart of gold
In my life I've lost my foothold
I'm not one to extol
I'm now lost
And at what cost? At what cost?
A torment of the ages
I've burned all the bridges
So now I run from the infernal wretches
I can hear their voices
A torment of the ages
I breath in the ashes
As my journey ends in blazes

Remember when you used to take me out to play,
With all the kids and dogs and birds,
And you told me then and there that I would go far,
That I would soar and see the world,
And I would sprout alabaster wings to save the world.
And I will never forget the day when you told me,
That I could be whatever I wanted
I got an A in class today.
I raised my hand and answered the big-girl question.
The teacher likes my thoughts and words.
She says I have a brain that's beautiful and big,
That my talents will help the world and make you proud.
And I hope that I am becoming what you want me
I tried out for a sport today just like you wanted and got on the team.
I know I'm not that good, but I'll work harder to be just like you were.
My classes are tough but I promise I'll keep trying,
And I hope you'll have time for me today when I come home.
I know you're busy, but I want to tell you about my day.
You'll probably be out with your friends, so I'll just go h

Rewind.InsanityOnce upon a time,Rewind.Insanity4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
in a place somewhere and in some time,
there were three happy friends.
The boy and two girls
had been together since preschool.
The first was a clumsy and energetic girl,
who loved to laugh with her friends.
The second was a child-like boy,
with a constant smile on his face
The third was a shy and quiet girl,
always drawing and reading to herself.
Nothing could separate those wonderful companions.
It was on the day of August 24th that they of them
decided to take a little trip to the waterfall.
The two girls and the happy boy ate sandwhiches
and looked out to the wonderful landscape.
The three gazed down at the falling water
from the railing.
Suddenly, the energetic girl began to slip
on the water and fall.
The boy reached out like lightening,
trying his best to save her.
He gripped her hands tightly,
and turned to the shy girl
"Help me! Help me pull her up!",
The boy exclaimed loudly
The girl walked over, and calmly
looked down on the struggling pair.
Instead of her
Two sidesTwo sides4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Light and dark sing,
Two voices of the paradigm,
Where the worlds of shadow and vision collide.
In the mind eye,
The voices manifest,
Of the two forms of ideal and fear.
Negativity and positivity,
Two sides of the same coin,
Shown as the light and the dark.
One screams of success,
While in counter retort the other sings,
Of the failures and the sins of man's perceived crimes.
The fears that cannot be escaped,
Manifest in the dead of night and coldest days,
At times where there is no way to run away and hide.
Yet the light retorts,
And forces away the darker shades,
Into the middle ground of the twilight.
There both sides scream,
A nightmare's chorus of choice,
With each option a war that no one can deny.
As success counter tort,
The darkness's built fort.
Flaws are echoed,
As are hopes and dreams,
The louder sounds enter the foreground.
Two sides of the same,
Twirling over and over like a spinning coin,
With the wings of white and black raven down.

Stars lit up like fire,
Captivated by your mouth I did not notice the horizon;
It burned ever on.
The softest water danced between your lashes,
And as you closed your eyes they fell
Onto my skin,
Creating blissful harmony
Broken by a single thought;
So reluctant, my heart cried,
The game of sin was spun.
Burdened with the weight of the world,
I let our symphonies go unsung.

Their forgotten language
To those too naïve
Lost in tangled forest,
Embedded in nature
Who rebuild broken stones
With fairy tales
And blank sheets of paper,
Who dream only of being
what they are not,
but don't know how to do it.
Entering ForeverEntering ForeverEntering Forever4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm not afraid of thunder clouds
Or shotgun lightening
Or how hard the wind blows.
I can stand on the edge of canyons
And still feel not so small.
There is a grandeur that is unique
To life, giving life,
Fading life and failing life
Each a different apex of the fire of the sun
Doing us a kindness as it spreads like butter on the blue
Setting and rising
The same way I am breathing
Falling and flying
And giving up its place
To accommodate the moon.
We are not nocturnal creatures
Our place is in the light
But just as our eyes take respite in sleep
Regenerating optics for the optimal radiance
We must allow those eyes to someday close forever
And who knows what is forever?
Will our eyes pop open to a similar sun
Smiling with peace, no burn from its rays
No reason to be cautious of the fire raining down .
Or will we adapt to perpetual obsidian night--
A smiling moon forever, perhaps some scattered stars
Living in the shadows when once we lived bright?

My Darkest FearMy Darkest Fear4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Traces of blood, everywhere I look around,
A desperate help request comes from nowhere,
I hear a scream, I can't move, I'm bound!
Somewhere far, I see a light,
Suddenly, from nothing, it just came to life.
I hear my name, it's echo floating in the air,
I see you down, but I can't see your face,
Your eyes are fixed on the ground, seems now you have fallen from grace
As I look closer ,all becomes so clear,
My heart starts to beat faster,
Over my spine I feel the claws of fear.
You are laying down, in a pool of blood,
Barely breathing, your color starts to fade away,
Your dark brown eyes turning into grey
Out of your lips comes a softly whisper,
Asking for help, searching for a savior.
I fall down on my knees,
I burst into tears,
In front of my eyes becomes so real-
My darkest fear
Desperate I shout, but theres nobody around,
I'm cursing this life, I hate that you left me behind!
I look at my hands, why am I holding this bloody knife?!
I hear a silent accuse,

frightened by that eerie call,
Pounding paws drifting near,
paralyzed by that mortal fear.
A moonlit shadow closing in,
a hunter's gaze full of sin,
Eager now the precious time fades,
a piercing look of a thousand shades.
The howl that rings through the air,
cutting through my heart
- no time to spare,
Lunging forwards, I let out a cry,
pinned now, I dare not survive.
The panting breath chills my bones,
so close now, I'm all alone,
This beast that's here has claimed me,
Now, like him, I can be.

To haunt me, to continue my torment

I must die so another can live
I've given all that I can give
So here's my goodbye, remember me well
For when you burn heaven, you end up in hell.
The Poem That Never ExistedThese words aren't really words,The Poem That Never Existed4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The letters you see are scribbled in blood,
They make up the past, present and future,
The rhymes you hear are only those of the screams
Of those who suffered.
Like a moth, I shall drown in the ocean,
For I write this poem which never existed,
During a time period that never passed,
Every time I die,
I feel more alive in the inside.
Every time you push me to the ground,
I become stronger, invading the sound
Of the foolish, the unworthy of grace.
For these words were never spoken,
Since they were never heard,
These words never existed,
Because they were never written.

You're blind to the world
Although you're constantly reassured
That your thoughts are important
And deserved to be heard
Your talent is overwhelming
Your maturity far exceeds
What people first expect
And what they first see
You have no faith in yourself
In the words that flow through
Though everyone around
Knows the star is you
You fight against your fate
Where you're destined to be more
Than what this small town will give you
'Average' isn't what you're meant for
But you're still blind
And you refuse to believe
That you're better than this
More than you can conceive
Blind to yourself
Blind to the world
Stuck in permanent darkness
A talented, deluded girl

In different shades of delight.

And high above the clouds
Where the angels live carefree
Above the danger of mortal crowds.
Angels made by God
Are the stars we see.
Their bright lights beam
Upon earthly, shadowed places
And lead the way back up to Heaven.

Transfix my eyes with your phantom gaze.

Rain down on me with your nightfall tears.
Whisper to me your notions of death
Prey onto me with every waking breath.
The cold winds blow
The blood doth flow.
Enticed by all, I love it so.
Perchance I scream from your soothing touch
Constrict my heart in your velvet clutch.
Slay me softly the way that you do
All that I love resides within you.
The shadows grow
The world doth go.
Yet tell me why I love it so.

Listen to the words
No one has the guts to say
Because not everything is happy
Not everyone's okay
You won't fulfill
All of your dreams
And things that are for sure
Are never as they seem
You'll be disappointed
You'll shed your share of tears
People will forget you
You'll face your deepest fears
You can either be admired
For the brave face you put on
The weight on your shoulders you bear gladly
Your ability to be strong
Or you could be pitied
That you've lost your will to fight
That you've lost sight of your sun
Stuck in permanent night
So listen to the negatives
That you've never heard
Before you're stuck in positive
Before the lines are blurred

You're begging me to let you go,
Do you really think this is a joke?
Now is time for you to bow.
Do you remember when you used to call me "freak"?
What made you believe that I'm so weak?
There's nothing bad in being different,
Now, I hope you know how pleased you should be,
To know the real me,
A mad psycho, that's what I am,
And with a bloody murder, that's how I'll end this game.
Do you remember how you used to break me down?
Everyday bit by bit, why you wanted to destroy my soul?
But I didn't let you see my tears,
I turned my back, pretending is not real,
I couldn't let you know my fears.
Now, I hope you won't mind,
If I tear you open wide,
Chop your heart,
Do you remember you did the same?
For your savage death you are the one to blame.
Why don't you laugh in my face once more?!
Do you believe now that the wheel can turn?
Well, your whole life is about to bend,
Take a look at my hand,
Is that your miserable life that I'm holding?

I have to now realise
The truth cutting deep
Discard my empty lies
Sad dreams in my sleep
The words obit my head
Stalking when I'm awake
Haunting my empty bed
Pushing until I break
What I'm truly feeling
The echoes of the heart
I fight from revealing
But where do I start?
Felt this way so long
Building with each year
Yet it's all so wrong
Hurts too much to care
Why did I have to fall?
Into your perfect gaze
To suffer withdrawal
When we part our ways
Why did fall for you
When we can never be
A stupid thing to do
Only paid in misery
It's cruel sad ending
In life's empty plan
I've no hope of mending
This lonely broken man
Why are you so perfect?
Amazing radiant beauty
No wonder you'd reject
You need better than me
The reality is so cold
Dark, empty and bleak
No-one for me to hold
The sad lonely freak
What part of my mind
Made me feel this way?
It is torture defined
And Now I am its prey
I've taken the descent
Fallen into your eyes
Endless falling torment
Under mocking skies
