Suffocate MeI told myself I wouldnt care, Id burn the links and cut the chains.Suffocate Me5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I told myself I wouldnt swear upon a love by any other name.
An open canvas now, my life would need to paint away this sin
by seeping in and weeping out, a cut too close beneath my skin.
And for the longest time, I had you rendered.
An evil foe that I had surely slain.
But you've shown me now that you have not surrendered;
Theres an overflow of woe within my brain..
And though the words are painful, suffocate me, please..
Cus I'm not dying here for you..
And I wont get down on my knees..
I told myself you were the worst mistake, and that I should have known........
I told myself you were the humble hatred in my world alone.
then I saw your new love, heard you'd moved on, and I was cold..
Poisoned honey in the ears of someone too scared to admit that it was so.
And while you broke my body, I just let you.
Because the crown of guilt weighs so much more.
Though I told myself I wouldnt forget you,
You gave no seco
Tiptoe RiverDo you remember days spent sunning on the banks of Tiptoe River? The sun reddened our skin the color of my cherry popsicle. You thought I didn't see the way you watched it dribble down my jaw. I'd spent far too long looking at your eyes to not know the feel of their stare when they gazed upon me.You held a grey May sky in each almond orb. Each time I looked in them I knew you were seeing the same image of me that you always did; a diminutive, pale girl crossing her arms over her chest to cover her breasts that were visible through the wet white cloth of her shirt as she stood soaking on your front porch silently begging you with earth-quake heartbeats to love her too.Tiptoe River5 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Do you remember the day we played hooky on the banks of Tiptoe River? We laid down near the waters edge and turned our heads to our sides but for miles around not another soul could be seen, and the forest hid us from the high way. Then I turned my head back up to look at the sunny September sky and I felt your gaze on me
Sea of sorrowLife is but a troubled sea of sorrow,Sea of sorrow6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Shifting on the waves of fate and snow.
Family like the ship that carries us across the waters,
Dreams blow its sails across a Summer sea.
Tragedy strikes the ship down and damages the precious hull,
But friends repair the broken ship so it can sail through Winter storms.
Heavy waves can break a ship,
And end its sailing days.
No more Spring rebirth,
No more Fall recall.
Ship wreaked on an island,
Where new Rib and Keel built.
New ship to carry us through troubled sea of sorrow,
New Dreams to carry us across the waters.
New oceans and new tragedy.
But new ship carries me across the waters.
Only When The Moon RisesOnly When The Moon RisesOnly When The Moon Rises6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's morning that I dread
The night offering me its arms in comfort
The peace echoing in the darkness
A balm for the wounded heart...
A chaos in my head
Emotions threatening to consume
I wait anxiously for each twilight
Serenity holding me tightly...
I extend myself beyond the horizon
Far past the moon and stars
Whispers of the universe echo in my ears
As I descend into the abyss...
My immortal embraces me
My dress blowing in the breeze
Wings spreading forth from between my shoulders
Settling against my skin....
My goddess come to life
The deity that resides in me
The muse that inspires me
Appearing only when the moon rises......
.....Guarding and loving me in my darkest hours.....
Lovesick FoolLovesick FoolLovesick Fool6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sometimes I think I am a fool
For thinking of something happening
A dream so beautiful begging to be held
An Angel whose smiles are fleetingly rare...
I know I am a fool
For feeling the way I do
You have me heads or tails
One day pining
One day tired of it all...
Your picture never does you justice, darling
For I see the beautiful soul you are
Goddess help me I am falling
In love with an Angel that does not feel the same...
I'm too proud to beg you
Too shy to admit the truth
Knowing if you read this
And I'd kick myself, the fool....
It's terrifying to feel this way
Like falling 1,000 feet into nothingness
Never sure of where I will land
Not even if it's in your arms...
Oh, what a fool I be
Daring for what may never come to life
Holding a fantasy too tightly
Will cause it to wither away
Like a flower too long exposed to the winter air...
I can only sit and wonder
At the hands Fate deals me in its mockery
Wondering if I will ever be happy
Or forever th

Release me from this spell
This enchantment that twists my mind
Images of you repeating over and over again
Yet I cannot have you...
Stop this madness!
Why can I not love the reality
That gets warped into fantasy
A love that will never be fulfilled....
I wish to be free
Of my heart torn into pieces
My dreams of your face
With a tear escaping my eyelids....
This must be my brand of Hell
The demons giving mocking laughter
To the anguish I yearn to cast away
Hoping to find the liberty for my tortured soul....
I loathe myself this weakness
For my fragile heart gives a flutter
A hope that's crushed in my chest
A spirit that begs for the truth.....
.....I long for the key to these ever-present chains....

You haunt me in my sleep
Brushing your lips over mine
Making my soul weep
Your face hidden in the mist....
Man of my dreams
Tempting me into madness
My heart crying for you
Alone in the dark....
An aching fills my chest
Longing for the mystery behind the smile
The soft brush that caresses my face
As I lie asleep in slumber....
You know you follow me
Whispering your love into my mind
Caresses so petal soft
That tears fall from my closed eyelashes
Wanting the dream to be real....
My hidden prince charming
Exists only in my dreams
Tormenting me with his words of promise
That echo even when I awake....
How I long for you to step from my spirit
Gather me into welcoming arms
Letting sweetness drip from your lips
Your eyes searching mine....
I know you will be my home
Yet I await in longing for that day
My heart silently weeping
For the other piece of me.....

Thundering EchoesThe thickened roarsThundering Echoes6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The Devil soars,
The sky begs to be torn.
The clasp which grasps
Through history and past
Reclaiming Hades from his abode.
The Sun shines dim
Its muffled light still grins
And echoes back to Genesis.
A penitent sky,
Through thunder it sighs,
And begs for our forgiveness.
The Zenith frowns, the Earth unmoved;
Theres no repentance in the roars.
The sky still cries, but Zeuss tears are lies,
Capable of painting blood on every door.

HappinessHow something so simpleHappiness7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Can turn out to be so important.
You never think about
The things it can do to you.
It affects you
Without you really notice.
You wish it'd never go away
You wish it'd last forever.
Happiness grows from
Such little things.
It makes you smile.
Don't ever leave me
Because you know.
You mean more than
Anything to me.
ErosionWhy is it that we as human beings settle for so little?Erosion7 years ago in Other More Like This
When we are young there is so much hope and aspiration,
It fills us to the brim....
so that ever other minute we want to be something, more
Then it fades....
slowly at first so we dont even notice,
like the sea, calm and peaceful,
the waves flowing back and forth to an unheard rhythm
you would never guess that it was eroding the coast.
Not until it was gone.

Space between us is vacuum
Our voices dont spread this way
One heart there, another here.
I would flop down exultantly
If i knew the remedy
of chainy-creased mountains
And foolish milestones.
These set us at variance.
Fair inlaid snare
Rue is just blue
get into our precious heart
Life strains me towards you
Vacuum and a pair of souls.
I would hide in your pocket, I fear.
My heart is there and yours is here.

Hello, my love
I feel you
The wind your invisible caress
As I stare out into the night....
Do you hear me, my love?
Our hands pressed to the cool glass
Almost touching -
A hidden longing...
The moon clings to Twilight's lips
Yet you are all I taste..
All I desire...
All I crave.....
I'm sending my soul out to you tonight
To embrace you with my warmth
Sending you all my love
With a sweet kiss burning the air...
Hello, my love, I need you..
Do you need me?
Does your blood burn with passion?
Does your heart long to be mine?
If you wish to fulfill my hopes
My every dream of you...
Just whisper those three little words
That echo in the darkness......

She dresses of the Earth and Sky
Fire is her cape
As Air dances by...
Her beauty inspires muses
Her love knows no bounds
Storms tremble in her honor....
Her tears are a waterfall
Her lips taste of nectar
Sweet melodies sung with her graceful lilt
Echo the songs of the universe....
The Stars are her guiding Light
The Moon is her Legacy
Arising with each twilight...
Spirit is her Liberty
The Darkness she travels along
Beautiful Goddess of the Elements
Never stays for long...
You may find her rapture
Upon the Morning dew
But you will never find another like her
That would sacrifice everything for Truth.
