You stole my fragile heart.We'd hit it off just great, I thought
You played the perfect part
Ensnared all my waking hours
And stole my fragile heart
You tricked me into trusting you
And blindly I believed
All the lies that you had fed to me
I was thoroughly deceived
You hurt me well and truly
With not a thought but to yourself
Our love, if you can call it that
Was a betrayal in itself
The minute I outlived my use
You left me standing there
No goodbye, nor apology
Just a vast pit of despair
You went straight back into her arms
As if nothing had happened
It was just a bit of fun to you
The reason your soul is blackened
It has taken time, but once again
My heart's begun to heal
The hole is slowly filling in
And the cracks started to seal
But then I saw you walk right by
A simple twist of fate
Where once your eyes were bright with life
They were now filled with hate
I don't know what she did to you
But I can guess that you're to blame
You brought this all upon your self
You have been played at your own game

You're charming yet another
But every time I glance once more
My heart quietly flutters
Your smile it melts
My hardest resolve
And my foolish hopes
Soften the harshest of blows
Your eyes draw me in
An inescapable pool of light
I'm too weak to move on
Ill put up no fight
I remember how it felt,
To be safe in your arms
I crave it once more
To be shielded from harm
That time was so perfect
How did it go so wrong?
We could've been so good together
And our romance was young
Then you went away
Acted like nothing had happened
We all knew it did
But the memory's been flattened
I didn't see you for weeks
But when I saw you again
It was like you didn't know me
As if I was to blame
It's clear you've moved on
And I just can't let go
How did I come so close
Just to hear 'no'?
I talked to your friends
They told me your thoughts
You liked my body, they said
But my personality fell short
Really I shouldn't stand for it
I thought I knew better

Into to hollows' of my cheeks
Your beautiful face forever etched
Into the gallery of my memories
Choked cries mingle in the air
Twirling like a broken symphony
My eyes filled with fresh sorrow shine
Like the moon on a clear winter's eve
Sobs wrack my body uncontrollably
Moving it in a jerky puppet's dance
My hands desperately rake at the ground
Tearing at the Earth to try to bring you back
My heart splinters into a thousand tiny pieces
An exquisite jigsaw only you can complete
The fibres of my very being unknit
And unravel into a tangled web of colour and anguish
My soul yearns and searches for you:
A homing pigeon in the raging, rolling storms of my emotions
I lay on the floor defeated and wounded
A broken soldier bereft of a cause to fight for
Yet, in that night of madness and insanity
In which my world was turned on its head,
And my light and life had nestled so close
Then was snatched so cruelly away
The sun rose and brought with it new hope.

And in that single moment I know
My heart will be forever prisoner
You will never let me go
Your gaze is like Medusa's:
Can turn mere mortal to stone
Except I have come here willingly
The full dangers I had known
Your eyes are like fire
Burning chestnut in the gloom
Scorching straight into my withered soul
My hope and spirit anew
Your smile is dazzling
Bright like exploding stars
It blinds me with its light and truth
Reaching deeply from afar
Your body is that of Adonis
Carved by angels hands
Yet wrought from stone it's full of life
A perfectly made man
Your voice is soft like velvet
Gentle, calm and smooth
Your words said with a graceful ease
And carefully thought through
Your personality, it seems,
Was built to gel with mine
We compliment like yin and yang -
Our true selves bare to shine
We share so many interests,
Yet are lives are so apart
But wherever you may go in life
You will never truly depart
Although you keep me prisoner
With all the things you

I took your hand in mine
It was a tentative gesture
Of our romance, a sure sign
Hazel eyes met brown
Cutting through the inky night
I saw your smile break across your face
And heard my own contented sigh
We gazed up at the stars that eve
As they sparkled in the sky
I curled my body close to yours
And watched the world go by
You snaked an arm around my waist
Claiming me as yours
You made me feel safe and loved
Protected and secure
Our heartbeats synced perfectly
Equally as fast
With foundations as strong as ours
This love was made to last
Neither of us slept that night
As we lay in a lovers embrace
I wanted to remember every detail
Every angle of his face
We talked little then
Silence was our voice
We both fell in love that night
Though neither through choice
The early morning sunbeams
Crept through the window, pale and pretty
The time to rise had come too soon
I could remain there for eternity
Eventually he had to go
Back to where he should've been
He crept away so si

They fly high like a sky full of birds.
When darkness falls, my words twist.
I can only hope for a reaction
Of emotional mist.
My pencil knows no bounds
No softness, no darkness is discriminated
Against what words, what sounds, what grounds .
Close your eyes and let me sing
A story of pride, lustful sin, and greed.
Offering no gift but words to bring.
Let me write, let me write.
I'll gain the upper hand someday
For my progress knows no might.

Even though we both agreed not to start another mess.
Its better for me to remember you by what made you one of the best,
And forgive myself for all the times I made you detest.
I'll remember you as the sweet voice comforting me through the phone,
But don't remember me as a cancer that wouldn't ever leave you alone
I'll remember you as the warmth in my arms as I say hello,
So don't remember me as the child who cried every time you said goodbye.
Everything started off as an accident maybe,
And maybe it ended because we were both a little too crazy;
I'd tell you stupid things and made you ungodly angry,
And I'd get you angrier by saying "I love you and all your personalities",
Time would pass by maybe an hour or two,
You would call me back and say "We love you too".
I'll remember you and I'll remember the times,
So please don't forget me, don't forget the times,
Please don't forget how I'm sorry I couldn't pay you back,
Lets forget the love t

I thought you would stay by my side,
But It wasn't real,
Now I know I can't hide,
It was just an illusion I've created,
My own happy world, far away from the dark.
When the truth was right in front of me,
I lied to myself telling "this can't be".
I closed my eyes and wished for better,
I wiped my tears realizing this will come true somewhere near to never
But at the end of the dark tunnel, I've seen a light,
It was a drop of hope,
The hope that kept me alive.
Hanging by the thread of hope,
I've figured out that you're so gone.
Were you even there?
All this time I've been alone,
Holding on by a shadow,
Feeding with memories,
In a world of hollow.
I am just a fool, I keep the memory of you alive,
Hiding from the crowd, they'll never understand,
But in the end I think I'll survive,
Or is this another illusion?
The hope that kept me alive

Oh when I first saw you
It wasn't hard to tell
That you were "The One"
I took one look
At that DBZ-Tee
Adventure Time hat on
And your, skinny jeans
I walked right by and said
"I lost the game,"
"Wait a minute, now what's your name?"
I took one sec
And I gave it a thought
And I said:
"Babe, it's whatever you want!"
And I said:
"I could be Chi Chi Son,
And we could fly on Kinto-Un
And though at times, I'll get mad
It won't be so bad
And I could be Marceline
The one-and-only Vampire Queen
And we'll fly through all the sky
And I'll only eat red dye."
When I next saw you
At the Comic Con
It wasn't hard to tell
That you were "The One"
I took one look
At your great cosplay
Cloud Strife's outfit on
I yelled, "You look great!"
You stopped walking
And I did the same
You said, "The one that wouldn't
Tell me her name...?"
I took one sec
And I gave it a thought
And I said:
"Babe, it's whatever you want!"

A poet's broken words.Most people don't even knowA poet's broken words.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
what a poet is nowadays.
It's not someone who writes poetry,
but someone with the ability
to create beautiful things
with pain and hate them.
I traded my soul for letters,
that I later transformed to words,
together they wrote out all my pain
but I'm starting to miss my soul.
All I have left is these broken w o r d s
and I wish I could call myself a poet
but to hate something beautiful,
before you have to create it.
How can you write when your words are broken
and your soul is missing?

PainWhat is a world without hardship? A world without pain? I know it doesn't exist.Pain3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To make us stronger,
But I always wonder, why must the pains be so great?
As to strike us down,
when our hearts are on the edge of shattering,
when we lose our way.
The one true evil takes the doubt, the pain, and pushes us until we lose ourselves.
The one true evil feeds off our pain
and uses it to spread the pain.
Uses us until we are nothing but dark hollow shadows,
when we have truly lost our way.
Pain against pain, in a war, until the very end,
when we are bloodied and broken.
Only then do we experience the true pain,
the pain of loosing ourselves
to the one true evil, and his sadistic ways of pain.
The pain of being on the wrong side of the battlefield.

Eagerly waiting for her love to call.
Tells herself everything will be alright
As she takes refuge inside of it all.
The nights drift by, the pain she cannot take
She wears the mask that fools all the rest.
Breathing nervously her legs start to shake
Holding the phone up close to her chest.
Her smiles resemble a wilted rose
Showing beauty and sadness in one.
Her parents suspect, her suffering shows
Fearing that it's only begun.
Down the hall she discovers the nightmare
Catches her love with a girl intertwined.
Clutching the wall, she falls apart right there
Becoming shattered both body and mind.
The phone it rings and sparks her attention
She hears the words no girl can mistake.
He tells her that she lost his affection
She then pray the lord her soul to take.
Her eyes they pour like fountains of sorrow
Mascara runs down the slopes of her cheeks.
No will tonight, no dawn for tomorrow
Frigidly trembling on tear stained bed sheets.

Bite your words into my flesh,
Scar my trembling skin.
This purpose of despising love,
Makes my pulse pound no more.
My heart turns eternally black,
Filled full of hate, guilt, and sore.
A mess you've made of my mind,
Turns me into something I'm not.
Something I hated,and wished not to be,
Those painful memories I forgot.
Record each precious moment,
And play them back inside my head.
I'll Weep till dawn turns to dusk,
And try not to end up dead.
Leave me standing...
So please, hold me in your arms
Drag me from all this harm
Pull me into an embraceable cage
Confused and screaming in a saddened rage.
Pain explodes into my eyes.
Holding in the tears, threatening to cry.
No need to feel my pain.
It would just make you become more vain.
Your life punctured
And trapped forever
A soul pleading to escape

Each day it hits you
Bites away more and more
Before you let yourself fall upon the floor.

Nameless saintAll I intend to do is to tell you a storyNameless saint4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Of a woman who has never known glory
Who has taken all the pain that life has given her
Yet all she has done is let the memories fade into a blur
She has experienced loneliness few of us know
She comes and goes as fleetingly as the winds blow
When she's gone she will remain in the memory of few
To those few people she will give a quiet adieu
She is the one who has never in this life known love
But yet she remains when push comes to shove
She is the one who remains balanced and kind
Seeing when everyone else in the world is so blind
She does more than should be asked for nothing in return
For some showing of love she continues to quietly yearn
Yet she doesn't drop her guard, granted by a shell so hardened
Yet all of those who caused her so much pain remain pardoned
Never in my life have I met a woman who deserves such admiration
I have never found the words to tell her, but she remains my inspiration

I see a change within myself,
The way I act, the way I feel.
Time doesn't register anymore
And when I taste or touch, nothing seems real
Though my dreams are vivid, I know they are untrue
Because I walk, I feel and spend my time with you.
The days are long and listless as I wait for my escape.
I'm addicted, my head is swimming but I can't stop now.
My path is chosen.
A tunnel of mystic light
Surrounds me as I fly
And I start to feel something again
As your hand caresses mine.
I'm never leaving, here I must stay
But my fragile human body keeps pulling me away.
I have a brain, I have a heart but neither of them can start.
This is not living, this is imprisonment.
I can't break free, believe me, I've tried
But My earthly bound entity has died
And this feeling of hopelessness and helplessness
Is because I fell for you
But it's not your fault because
That's why I sneak away each night
To visions of pure bliss
