This Is The World We Live In.This is the world we live in.This Is The World We Live In.1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
A world of chaos,
A world of hate,
A world of doubt and fear,
A world of violence.
Decades upon decades of political corruption and lies.
Many years of falseness,
Many years of doubt,
Many years of remorse and suffering,
Many years of pain.
This is the world we live in.
A world that bleeds,
A world that burns,
A world that lives and dies,
A world that exists.
Decades upon decades of mistrust among others.
Many years of complaints,
Many years of warfare,
Many years of death and blasphemy,
Many years of dysfunction.
What is this world that has become this way?
What did this world used to offer that it doesn't now?
What could this world be if we choose to go down this path?
What would this world be without all the bloodshed and disaster?
What is this world we live in?
What is this cold and blackened Earth?
What is this feeling that one keeps inside oneself?
This is our fright, our fear, our joy, our pride.
This is our life, our skin, our bones, our soul.
March of the DamnedMarch of the Damned3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Marching on dead feet
over a field of gray
we lost the soul
we lost ourselves
in a time we'll never forget
we're an army of dead men.
Those who shoved us into this world
were lost long ago
as a wage of war.
Even the shallowest scratch
cuts to the bone
with a story we don't care to tell
some still scream
when in the heat of battle
they find another hollow
in the very flesh of their souls.
But most can no longer muster a tear
as we march
doing the dirty work of the devil.
An army of dead men.
We only wish we could care
GoodbyeI saw youGoodbye3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
But now I don't see you anymore
The time was running out
Our time together was final
And most of my life you were done
You needed to live through others
Like through me
And even when you did so
You never gave up
You were always ready for a challenge till the end
You were always talking before thinking
Always telling the truth
And that was not always for the best
But we loved you anyway
We saw you
Your bubbling energy
Your lust for life
I miss you
You were a fighter
A one of a kind
One that shouldn´t have left
But time passes
And we don't control what happens
We just know it will happen
I just know I cried
I just know it ended
I just know it was for the best
Still I wish it could be different
That everything was a fairytale lie
But I have to face reality
The time passed
Even through I would wish that I could rewind it
I must be grateful to have known you
And I am
Because I saw you
And now I don't see you anymore

Wake up girl and bring your head up, where are you?
You rub your eyes, but nothing is getting clearer
All too soon, you know you can't break through
Escape is gone down in here and nothing else is near
Looking around, you see too many
Horrors untold, murders done so slow
Everything didn't even cost a penny
Yet day by day, down in here, they grow
Holding on tight with bloodied hand
Wondering if you can carry them all,
If these lifelines can even withstand
The monsters after your great F a l l
Little girl, little girl, your wings like a dove
Beautiful as you were, no one ever said
The world could be so easily void of love
Leaving behind mashes of black and red
Innocence dying so fast inside
Sad thing is, down here, is the reality
Wait and wait, but still no guide
Life is fragile but shows such brutality
Call for the sanctuary away from home
Still in the end, everything is catching up
Alone and beaten, stuck with nowhere to roam
You wish once more to have not grown up

natural loveWhen I see younatural love3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
my heart pounds
like rain in
When we touch
you make me howl
like a wolf at a full moon.
You're the breeze
that scooped me up
and swept me off my feet,
My love for you
is like the ocean
it goes down
When we talk
i lose my words
my mouth turns
parched and dry
like ashes mixed with
specs of sand
that fall from
You pulled me in
and kept me
like shells pulled
by the undertoe,
your eyes twinkle more
than every star in the universe
When we met
you picked me up
off of the ground
like a hurricane
you dropped me and i fell for you
like snow falls
on winter days.
You're a 10 on the richter scale
my personal earthquake
because when im around you
my whole body starts to shake.
You're my end, my sunset
i'll miss you much tonight
i'll wait for you to rise at dawn
just to bask in your sunlight.

"Would you rather I shoot the walls?" Sherlock retorted, a smug smile playing across his lips when the other man didn't respond.
He then turned his attention back to the television, surprisingly intrigued by the complex relationship of Rose and the Doctorthe ninth regeneration, the big eared one. Me. Sherlock Holmes. Intrigued by crap telly about supernatural stuff. A giggle, out of all things, nearly escaped Sherlock, and he mentally blamed John for getting him into the show.
A sigh escaped his lips after that, and he couldn't help but nearly affectionately thinking John's really affected me, hasn't he? Amazing man, being able to do that. Stupid as anything, too attached to material possessions, to
Tears of the PastRain falls down on the treesTears of the Past4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Branches heavy with tears of the past
And the wind speaks to me
At my window
Controlling me - Isolation
Hopelessness - Losing Interest
Meditate on just one thing
Innocence...In a sense
I am guilty - I surrender
You can't escape from this
If you don't stop
Running away from
Blue-gray streaks are coming down
Perfect skies shine in the distance
Barriers that blur my sight
Keep me in this dark existence
You can't escape from this
If you don't stop
Running away from
Life can be bliss
If you let it be.
Take me away from this,
And teach me serenity.
Surrender and be free,
Free, let me be free! Let me go!
Drawing the shades -
We both know you can't let me go
Where am I?
Is this real?
All that I am
All things material
All are whole,
Perfect, and beautiful
As this wave of clarity sweeps over me
We all have the power to choose,
The power to be!

Do you see the angel above you?
Lost in its' despair
losing its shine
wings will not save it
they too are broken
crashing into the sea
drowning in a sea of sorrow
never-ending despair surrounds her
things aren't always what they seem
A Fallen Angel she is
deeper and deeper she sinks
into the mighty darkness
voices surround her, calling her name
arms embrace her, gripping her limbs
harder and louder they scream and tug
until she can take no more

I was honest.
I was totally honest, confessed
each and every lie.
And now the real me is out on display
to be patronized and critized;
sized up and cut down;
or completely destroyed.
Was it worth it?
I can't say...

Do I blame you?
Is it your fault?
All I feel are the unnecessary restrictions from you.
On my spit for telling you every ounce of my life.

To lay upon my breast
So he could pretend, if only once,
That something beat within my chest
But as the years passed by
The wood splintered and grew old
All the love he had for me
Was truly just as cold
The heart that he did carve for me
Was his, no other man's
But all the love he had for me-
It splintered in my hands
BreakfastYou told me she had died in a hospital bedBreakfast1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
With her glasses on
So that she could see Death properly
And I picked away at my breakfast,
Which was pancakes and strawberries,
Trying to imagine
Her squinting ahead at Him
With her dying eyesight
The pancakes were dry and store-bought
And my plate was a pool of cold syrup
When I had finished,
And my hands were stained with the sweet blood
And you took my place,
Picking away at soggy crumbs.
He, the Lonely GodHe, the Lonely GodHe, the Lonely God3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
He, the man with the clever blue box.
He, the courageous, the brave.
He, the lonely traveler, the Time Lord,
Like fire and ice and rage.
He, the fearless, the one without fear
Of whom the shadows are afraid.
He, with the pain of hundreds of years
With all the worlds to save.
He, protector of the human race
Burning through space and time.
He, defender of the universe.
He, the clever and wise.
He, the infinite, the never ending, the endless.
He, the legend, the myth.
The man with two hearts to love
But no one to love them with.
He, the lonely god.
Don't know what to doDon't know what to do4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
No one seems to understand
that my heart pounds when he's next to me
I try to avoid his gaze because I become
self conscious and nervous
I hate him because he makes me different
but there are so many things he does
that make me smile and laugh and
I tell myself to get over it
this isn't going to work, ever
but then he does something that just
has me flustered and without words.
Where can I turn where can I go
if every place I look he seems to
just cloud my mind and thoughts
or even worse
appear right in front of me
where I want him, yet dread him, to stay

You tell me just to breathe,
But with my head underneath the water,
That's a little hard to conceive.
As I sink further and further,
The sunlight slips away.
I shut my eyes, accepting the fact,
That things will never change.

You say that I say it over and over when that is a complete lie.
When I want to pour out every worry, every mind exploding detail you ignore and assume it's the same crap again.
This is why I am so fucked up is because I can't go to you for anything anymore.

These voices in my head wont leave me alone
"no one wants you to stay"
"there's no point for you to pray"
Just walk away and hide the truth

sleep away the days and run from help
and put the wishing ball right back on the shelf.

Cuddling Can't Be Simple
(BBC's) Sherlock/John semi-fluff
"What do you want?"
John's brow furrowed, forming well-worn wrinkles as he settled heavily against his too-thin friend. The first time he'd heard Sherlock utter this specific question had been three weeks ago, just after John had finally given in to the soft smirks, the messy dark curls and absentminded touches. Oh, and stupidly adorable clumsy flirting. On both their ends.
Considering the compromising situation they'd been in when Sherlock had asked, he hadn't given the question much thought.
But now he'd kept asking, days and weeks after their flurry of shouts and giggles and confessions. It hadn't taken him terribly long to see the pattern; any time he invaded Sherlock's personal space, The Question was uttered. But why? Any attempts to call Sherlock out on the odd inquiry was met with curious, stupefied eyes and a circular conversation that ended with Sherlock deducing John was the one being obtuse.

On this special day for Moms,
I have walked around in a fog,
So much has happened,
These past few months,
A nightmare they have been,
Today though, I have shut down,
Closed down all within me.
It has become too much,
So my treat for myself today,
A Mothers Day gift I give myself,
Is to feel nothing...
To block everything and everyone out,
Solitude is all I want.
Just for one day,
Not to think on anything,
Not to feel,
To empty my mind,
Shut out the voices,
Lock down my emotions,
To just turn it all off!
Numbing silence will fill my day,
Yet I would have it no other way,
As it soon draws to a close,
Reality will come again tomorrow,
But for now,
Feeling the night breeze,
I close my eyes,
And drift off to sleep.
For even on this night,
There are no dreams,
There is nothing ..
But bitter sweet silence
Happy Mothers Day to me
