You are the cause of my wrath
The cause that blazed through my path
My life I have sat in the cold
Just waiting to be told
The binding curse fills me
I scream in my soul with agony
To me you are a little tease
You look at me all pleased
I shall haunt you with my fury
I shall rip your flesh apart
I shall prove your lies to the jury
I shall tear your heart at last
My eyes are what has become
Bleeding with what I have sung
The tip of my tongue licks my lips
My bubbling blood starts to stick
As my teeth sink in flames
I wonder who is to blame
I walk I glide I run
Looking around to see the fun
I laugh at the sky
Though I do not know why
Red, orange, yellow and blue
Cripple the leaves under the winter hue
Everything starts to burn black
Everything starts to crumple
Everything starts to bleed
As I point my finger at you
I smile and whisper a word or two
My eyes are filled with one emotion
Now I really wonder what is all the commotion.
My sunshineMy sunshine2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As the days grow cold
And the nights dark
It's your sunshine that
Keeps me at ease
Even on the gloomiest of days
when the clouds reign the skies
And a bitter breeze brushes by
So paint me in your sunshine
for me to follow hand in hand
Remember me by your side
So I can keep my ray of sunshine

Luxurious colours lick earth's bare skin,
Her majestic radiance flourishes,
A finger's touch breathes life upon us kin,
While fair divine complexion nourishes,
Furious machines tear life to its doom,
As our future in everlasting fate,
Syn woven in life by destiny's loom,
Then eternal possession lands the wait,
Wishing by metamorphosis as aim,
Fiery complaints wash innocent sight,
Shadows lift while glowing truth becomes tame,
Quivering thoughts emerge; taking free flight,
Convey: images, power we can find,
When more novel lives begin to hatch blind.

i watch the trees in my front yard sway so gently, i begin to feel myself move slowly with the motion of the wind. it whispers softly in my ear, the way my lover would whisper sweet nothings to me in the early morning. i feel the hair on my neck tickle, and i shiver, as though the wind faintly brushes and kisses my skin tenderly.
my hair dances and twirls gracefully with the cool dawn breeze. i close my eyes and hear your voice all around me. you tell me that you love how passionately crimson my hair is, and that it suits me so perfectly. i laugh, and for a fleeting second, i feel you with me. i open my eyes, and watch the first aurora of light that glimmers- and i feel myself glowing under the warmth of the sunlight. euphoric colours of honey yellow, rose red and flesh coloured pink illuminate a glimmer of hope for the new day.

WalkingI rose this morningWalking3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To find myself human
And I, being thus,
Took a path from where I lay,
Brushing aside brambles and branches
In my journey that day.
The figures I passed
On that road were many,
Most walked as I did,
Though a few, being mournful
Passed me by, walking once again
Over footsteps already made.
They soon passed into shadow,
Far, far behind,
Their keening travelled oddly
Amidst boughs and leaves
Being distorted, changed:
A child's cry.
Patches of sunlight
Dripped over starved and parched minds
And souls, a welcome relief
Before plunging, once again,
Into solumn, stately marches
Forging paths and half-paths
A wall of shadow stood,
A sentinal, a last barrier,
The pilgrims, I among them
Before marching onward
Donning the dark as a velvet cloak
Pale faces drift by, watching,
A figure stands before me.
He turns, and looks;
He walks not as others do
His arms, open wide and dark
Welcomed me in cool embrace,
And I, being human, slept that night.
Vivid DreamsThere are moments when my fears seep into my dreams and grip me in my sleep.Vivid Dreams3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
They awaken me with a start and pound aggressively on my heart.
I can't understand it and it doesn't make sense, but I feel like I'm balancing on the edge of a fence.
Just one small push is all it should take to remove me from this painful dreamscape.

To all those people out there who think you see your life flash before your eyes when you're going to die, I have some major news for you; it doesn't happen. How do I know? Because I've had seven chances to get the replay of my life, and it hasn't happened. Not even once.
I grew up in a small town. There were no secrets. At least, that's what everyone said. That's what everyone thought. But behind closed doors, there were plenty of secrets. Secrets I lived with everyday. Secrets that made up my life. Secrets that were my life.
Glass shattered from somewhere in the garage. Silence filled the kitchen as my mother and siblings anxiously waited for an angry, violent face to appear from the kitchen. Nothing. Silence. Then screaming split the air. He was screaming bloody murder again.

Speak with TruthBeating of a heartSpeak with Truth3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
That are not mine
Irony between illusion
Sever the ties
I speak its name
I spit it out
In the fireplace
I burn nevertheless
With frozen flames
Heating my heart
It has been time
Since we have met
But ever since I talked to you
I knew you where special
Every message makes my heart jump
Longing for the next word
Whatever it would be
I gave a ear to listen
Time is not our friend
Nor our guide
And I rot
In dreams and desires
Craved by my mind
The wish is the father of the thought
I shall long forever
And never forget
What you meant for me
And what you still mean for me
That we may hold hands
In front of a golden sun
Falling into an blue sea
I have given up
Hope for a meeting between us
Hold a sacred wish
Believe in you
DifferentPeople keep disappointing meDifferent3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
One by one, every single day
Giving me the chance to make up my mind
To see the truth in things and stop dreaming life
Seeing how things go wrong,
But not being able to change it
Make my mind the strongest feature of me
Use it, every minute, every second
See how things could be, how they should be
But pay a price for it
Maybe I was meant to realize this
Maybe it's a gift that's been given to me
Or perhaps I was made this way
It isn't I who is different than the rest
It's the rest, that's different than me

Letter of HopeI used to be so depressed all of the time. No matter what anyone did or said I would still be sad. I just couldn't pull myself out of it. I couldn't shake off those feelings.Letter of Hope3 years ago in Letters More Like This
All I ever did was mope around and wonder what it would be like if I were dead. On a few occasions I even tried to kill myself.
I overdosed on my pain medication and my muscle relaxers. I even slit my wrist. Obviously, all of my attempts failed since I am writing to you now.
I realize now that I was being unreasonable. I had convinced myself that I was alone and unloved. I didn't believe when people told me that they cared.
I distanced myself from everyone around me, and deceived myself into believing that I was better off on my own.
I was very wrong.
It's been a while since I felt this way. I no longer have the desire to kill myself. I no longer wish that I was dead.
I will not lie, there are moments when the feelings resurface and I feel like I'm drowning. But I know better now, and I squash those tho

Two more days 'till Sweet Freedom! Gui *ahem* , I mean Professor Min, is up there droning on about who-cares-what. I start ignoring him (something I've become very accustomed to.) Ahhhh ocean waves, popsicles, and most importantly Bathing Suits! I've just bought a new extremely skimpy bathing suit that's sure to make all the guys stare! "Hah! Look at this beautiful bod!" whoops, was that out loud?
"Feng Lan, As sure as I am that the class might enjoy that *ahem* can we please stay on topic?" Everyone bursts out laughing! How embarrassing!
"Ahhh, sorry yes, continue." Gui Professor Min goes back to write on the board then pauses. Everyone's still giggling.
"Actually class, I was going to discuss this at the end of class but Feng Lan has given me a wonderful intro to my fantastic sure-to-be-a-hit-idea." Keep acting smart Gui, I know you for the idiot you really are! "Class how about we take a summer vacation together!"

And Faith was still there, among other things, when it should have all run out
Faith was a loyal friend, when no hardships or pain could be seen
Faith seemed to masquerade as our enemy, however, when things weren't as they should have been
Faith rejoiced with us, never once did it flee, amid our time of gain
And Faith was still there, mocking us, in the twilight of our pain
Among contentment, utopia, and utter bliss, it was Faith that made us sing
Yet at another time, when we needed it most, it was Faith that broke our Wings
Faith is what bid us the talent to take wing like Eagles and fly
It's not wrong to feel disowned, then, when it was Faith that made us Cry
When not a thing could hold us back, it was Faith that set us Free
Yet when we tried to stray from it, that same Faith set up Boundaries
Faith is what kept us strong, kept

The True Meaning of ChristmasWe seem to forget the real meaning of Christmas.The True Meaning of Christmas3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We always think about presents and Santa, but...
What happened to Jesus? Where is He in all this?
Why does Jesus happen to be less important during this time of year?
Jesus does more and knows more than Santa does.
He gives us more than Santa does.
Why are we praising Santa for this? Shouldn't we praise the Lord?
Here's a little comparison:
Santa only knows your name, your address and if you're bad or good;
But Jesus knows everything about you!
Santa only lets you sit on his lap;
But Jesus will let you in His arms and holds you!
Santa comes to your house uninvited;
But Jesus will knock on your door and enter your heart if invited!
Santa is only here one day on Christmas;
But Jesus is here everywhere everyday!
The list can go on forever on this topic.
I'm not saying we shouldn't get presents and not be happy.
But during Christmas day, even if it's only for five minutes,
Can we pray all that we're thankful for?
Can we spend with Je

and a flawless shining moon; they aren't all that far..
They remind me of a place in time that seems not to exist,
an empty place full of light where sorrow turns to bliss.
Some call it heaven, others call it death,
but when i look into this place i see love doth exist.
It may be far, much like my star, but to this place i fly.
My mind is wings, my heart is air, and i fly unto the sky.
How do I escape, to my secret place?
You'll find it isn't hard..
Open your mind, make your escape,
and it isn't very far.
