Russian RouletteLets play a game with your veins,Russian Roulette2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Close your eyes and embrace the pain.
Russian roulette, with a blade,
Hold it tight and let it fade.
Release the anger and the regret,
Close your eyes and never forget.
Release the tears and the thoughts,
Darkness comes and all is lost.

thrashing and flailing as if grabbed by the heart.
Covered in ashes or frozen to the spot,
everybody's dying there's no escaping the plot.
This I believe is the reason we die
the population is growing, polluting the sky.
Our endless hunger depleting the trees,
crushing the food chain and causing lungs and stomachs to bleed.
On top of it all
our murderous ways
cause us to kill each other
leaving us mourning for the rest of our days.
This I believe
is the reason we send
others to save us
from our unstoppable end.

the moon and all of its hearts.
The bite of love makes you his slave
bound to him and all his parts.
Bound to serve and nothing more,
bound to die with pain galore.
A tortured soul and nothing less,
against your lips his lips shall press.
The kiss of torture, the kiss of pain,
it kills you slowly while pleasure courses through your veins.
A pleasure unknown to man,
for it is the pleasure of death.
A pleasure that courses through your blood
causing loss of breath.

Poisonous at best
And deadly at worst.

Take a deep breath,
And tearing flesh,
That's the feeling

oh, the black cat of the demon's sons
she, alone, destroyed the heavens
she, alone, murdered the peasants.
"A witch!" she cried, "A witch! A witch!"
Fainting and screaming, pretending she was
until, one by one, their lives were done.
A wench she was, and a wench she still yet be
she brought us hell, and disaster she did seek!
The Devil! The Devil! In Salem he is
oh, the demon himself, the wickedness he brings!
His selfish little cat pointed us out
until one by one we dared to scream and we dared to shout
innocent we were and innocent yet
she alone is the witches pet.
God's finger, she pretended to be
until she picked on my friends, my husband, and me
her plan then faltered for he was to be true
he stuck by my side and fell into the witches brew.
Alarmed was the cat that her toy was to die
she fled Salem, the devil at her side.
Oh, its all her fault, that spiteful little cat
she betrayed the heavens and broke God's back
its all her fault we weep and
DepressionWhen she walks she wonders why she is still here,Depression4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
when she talks she thinks she shouldn't be here.
She wishes it was her not him who had to go,
For without him here she feels all alone.
Her smile has faded, her beauty obscured,
she's lost in a dark world full of dark words.
No sun can reach her she is in too deep,
and even worse she cannot sleep.
She's as thin as a toothpick for she cannot eat
she's in depression now and cannot speak.
The one she loved is no longer living,
he is trapped between this world and the next for she is still grieving.
He wants her to be happy and move on in life,
she can not do this for her soul is stuck in the dark
where no sun can reach her and she's falling apart.
She can't take it anymore she's dying inside,
she's weakening swiftly as life begins to pass her by.
She's stuck in the past with no intention of moving on,
she searches for the knife to find that its gone.
Her energy is draining, burning up quickly,
her heart beat is weakening as she starts sing
Deaf Like Me...?I took a course at the University of the West Indies (UWI) called Deaf Language and Culture. One assignment of this course was to spend a day as a 'deaf' person, ignoring what I hear; and to spend at least 3 hours with Deaf people. A very rewarding day! I spent a lot of time with JSL (Jamaican Sign Language). Do enjoy!Deaf Like Me...?3 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

4:30 p.m. Begin
4:31 p.m. - On the way to Papine from the UWI, I see an old high school friend and give a gestural greeting. He answers with a wave of his own and a voiced greeting; I keep walking after a nod.
I go on to try to find the Danny Williams School so I will know how to get there in the morning. I realize how much I rely on hearing; at almost every outburst that someone makes from out of a bus window or from anywhere behind me (and there are many school-aged young ones around at the time) I turn around to see what it is; it is very hard to stop myself.
After I find the school, as I am heading bac
Sick Or SaneEverything I built up slowly crumbles awaySick Or Sane3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
All the lights in my head have gone out
The poison within numbs my heart to the pain
A tired voice in my head starts to shout
But it just doesn't matter how loud I may scream
After all its all locked in my head
Am I fading away just like all of my dreams
Do I still breathe or am I long dead
Now my tired hands are trembling as I try to push through
Why I'm trying I no longer know
Everything I held dear is now wasting away
Should I hold on or should I let go
Am I sick in the head or is this just me
Honestly I can't tell anymore
What I do understand is that somethings not right
How did these broken thoughts pierce my core
Now I'm trying to crawl my way through the debris
I've been searching these ruins for myself
An emotional earthquake has torn me apart
I just hope I'll escape with my health
I Can't Be LovedGod.I Can't Be Loved3 years ago in Scraps More Like This
God must hate me.
Honest, loyal, always taking care of everyone.
That's who I am.
But there's one thing I'm not.
I'm a hideous monster.
Never to know what love is.
Because that's society these days.
Who the hell cares about morals,
If you're pretty
Who gives a fuck about any of that?
Yeah, there are some who don't love you just because
You're pretty or easy.
But where the hell are they?
I haven't found one.
Because even to them.
I'm a hideous monster.
Why can't I be loved too?

From glistening tarnished lips
I hear the Siren's Call
Come and join us here
In a warped suspended fall
In a separated world
Where nothings ever real
It would surely be absurd
To ever have to feel
Just come and take a sip
From the devil's polished cup
Enter this poisoned paradise
We'll greedily hoist you up
Where you can lazily dream
Your bleak existence away
Without any cares
Without any pain
These entities are a paradigm
Of all that you can be
These faces found suspended here
Look strangely familiar to me
The Siren's hypnotic song
So deliciously intoxicating
Someone hurry,please reach out
I feel the weightless falling
So scared that I will leave
The land of the living behind me
Hang by the grappling noose
Of the lost and sleepless dreaming

In such wanderings as polka-dots,
Candy words covered in goo-
Talk and talk of what you're doing,
But what is it you're up to?
Lie to those who won't believe you-
There's nothing left to loose.

It doesn't exist.
By the end of the night
I can promise you this.
My heart is hard
And my soul is cold,
I can't go on
With this life of stone.
So, goodbye my friends,
Goodbye my love,
Goodbye my family,
And ones above.
I'll see you soon
In another world
Where things are new
And not so messed up.

A girl is sinking to her knees
With unshed tears and silent screams
She hides the pain that no one sees.
Round her body flowing red
Images playing in her head
A twisted knife falls from her grasp
Ghosts' of demons from her past.
In the river of broken dreams
A girl has fallen to her knees
With crimson tears and twisted screams
She shows the pain that no one sees.

Goodbye To YouGoodbye To You4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Goodbye to You
My eyes are finally clear
The haze of loving you is gone
I watched you walk out of sight
As I cried my last tear for you
My hearts no longer breaking
Your lies no longer echo through my head
The sun has broken through that dark clouds
That were hovering over my head
The rain has finally stopped
And a smile has returned to my face
Goodbye may hurt for a moment
But loving you, hurts far worse
As I watched you walk out of sight
As the wind blew away the last of my pain
Standing on my own two feet at last
Feeling like my own person again
Who knew it'd take your leaving
To make me whole again
Goodbye to loving you
Goodbye to the tears I used to cry
Goodbye to the pain you caused me
Goodbye to my broken heart
Goodbye, Goodbye to you
