Dreaming Of Tears
Weakened to the very core
I can't endure this anymore
I'm going to black out
And be transported to a realm
Where my screams don't make a sound
Hate keeps me bound while I leave my fears to drown
I loath the days without rest
I despise the nights of endless stress
Though I can't settle for anything less
Because lower than this is death
It's like living and sleeping within tortuous realities
Even though I'm unconscious- there is no such thing as rest for me
No one knows how powerful my dreams can be
No one knows all of the graphic images I've seen
Dive into the ocean! / Swim through the thorns!
Let your pain open! / Allow your skin to mourn!
The memories start to fill
Then time stands still
A level of this kind of guilt
Is more than enough to kill
I don't know whats worse- my dreams
Or all of the secrets that I keep
It's hard to believe
This is what I call 'sleep'
In these impure waters
I bathe in the pools
Those of a coward

The MazeThe Maze2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Divide reality from illusion
Forwards is backwards
Separate belief from redemption
Success is failure
Where shadow crosses light
The ground meets my face
I'm surrounded by lies
The truth is too far away
Hope is this-
Faith is this-
Pain is this-
It's just another dead end / It's filled with emptiness
This is death's discontent / Resenting life's rhetorical existence
Fear is this-
Chaos is this-
Peace is this-
An infinite cycle mocks
Turn after turn
The timelessness cannot stop
As the same path is reborn
An unstable prisoner drowns
Lost inside my own encrypted mind
The way out can never be found
In this maze called “my life”
Your scars...Are you happy?Your scars...4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Do you see the scars you have caused me?
I can't stand it! You're the one,
who drove me to drive the blade in.
I want it to all to go away
Leave me alone. What can you do nothing?
You cannot save me from this.
I have already fallen too deep,
and too long,
To be protected anymore.
Close your eyes, feel it leave you.
Walk away, feel it burn.
Feel it close in your emotions forever.
Forever they are with you.
A Tale of FearA Tale of Fear3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Halloween is coming up.
I always loved Halloween, and not just because I was born around that time of year.
I always loved it because it's the one time of year where most people are willing to face their fears, to stop looking away from the darkness in which lies their own distorted reflection, locked away deep within their subconscious
During that one time of year, people get to see what I see.
I was about 6 years old when I first experienced the agony of true horror.
I only have very vague memories of my childhood, but everything about that night remained in my mind, clear as crystal.
Sure I had been scared before. We all have, it's part of being a child. Fear is a plant that grows deep within the holes of our knowledge, filling the voids until one day the light comes shinning. Until then, we are bound to be scared of the things we don't understand, children and adults alike. But children live in a world filled with the unknown, where the roots of fear have plenty of room to spread.

Chapter 13 Calm before the storm.
"You should have stayed with the target! Because of this the assassin is now gone and Abstergo expect us to pick up the pieces!" Randell yelled at Cross from across his large desk, Cross himself didn't so much as flinch at the others rage, he stood there like he was made of stone strong and resolute.
"I have no excuses sir, once the assassin was within the compound and they strapped him to that machine, I figured they didn't need me any further I should have known better, that the assassin would escape and that Zeus would come after him" Cross said softly as he watched the General pace back and forth in agitation "What do we do now?"
"I don't know" Randell said sounding exasperated as he fell into his large chair with a sigh "According to the reports, Altair didn't have what Abstergo wanted and their other escapee Desmond Miles is now missing, we know he's within the city but other than that we have no clues... we have to suspect that Zeus

Behind Hollowed Eyes
Day after day-
I tried continuing on to live this way
With damaged veins made of concrete-
I am the undone suicide that was kept a secret
But I can no longer exist-
Inside of this pretentious skin
There is a past that I wish I didn't remember
There is a future that just looks too painful
There is nothing you can say or do that will help
Because...there is..,no turning back now
I draw everything away within the undertow
I smother the remnants of your reincarnated hope
I am the lost child you took for granted all those years ago
I am a maelstrom of deceit
I am a darkness that you cannot defeat
I am the awaiting fate of this pathetic destiny
This voice/This smile
This figure/This shadow
This soul/This sorrow
This pain/This hell
These words might not mean anything
But I want to say that I'm sorry, so sorry for everything
That's the last of my sincerity
Don't Hurt Me.As I fall from the horse,Don't Hurt Me.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Believe in me to rise again.
Can you not see I am hurting?
Don't knock me over, I will prevail,
Even though, you think I can't.
Fuck you, I'll prove it to you.
Getting better by the second,
How can you not see?
I know my own strengths well
Just like I said, believe in me.
Kill the disbelief,
Light my way for me.
My only regret, you forget, is you,
Not by what you say,
Only by what you do, but
Promise me that you'll help, and
Quit your stupid mistakes
Remind me that life goes on,
Save me from my anger, my hate
Tomorrow starts another day,
Until I turn again to pain
Vividly I remember,
What you said to me, your words like
Yes, I remember, all too well..
Zero tolerance for me.

Smiling in the sunlight

How better to live than as a god

Give Me a ChanceI am confused; lost in a trance,Give Me a Chance3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
just sitting here, wanting a chance.
I can see that maybe at first glance,
I'm not who you think I am, but
give me a try and see what the future grants.
The feelings I have, I cannot subside,
but I won't try to bury them deep,
and I will not try to hide.
I won't push this aside;
won't leave this untied,
not untried and denied,
and maybe one day, we can finally live,
My life was in shambles; I wasn't stable,
you could look at me and tell I was unable.
Stuck in an endless loop of emotion,
and I was frozen
on a straight path towards an explosion.
It's hard when you're constantly devoted.
This heart has a constant beat,
it will continue and repeat, indiscreet.
Without you it becomes obsolete,
My love for you will never deplete.
Give me a chance,
just give us a try.
I promise I won't lie,
but as I wait for a reply,
I feel the pain of deny,
and all I can get ready for is saying..

You don't know the half of it.
You couldn't fathom the agony.
You have no idea, what it's like.
After everything you put me through,
Everything you've done.
After what you've killed inside of me,
A demon has been created.
I feel no sympathy,
I feel no remorse.
I have no feeling,
and I fear I have no heart.
Cold, dead hands constrict me,
The fire inside scorches,
The dark abyss of forgotten lies,
Consumes my very soul.
I fear there is no turning back,
From the beast you have made of me,
From the monster I am.
From the demon that I have become.
Pretty LieThe sound so loud, a silent cryPretty Lie3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A morning sound all too well known
Smile on beautiful lie
From a flawed and broken home
The slap of skin, a tear so cold
The splintering of fragile bones
Pretty lie so often told
Pretty, broken, hopeless home
A leather sting, can't hold it in
So now you're crying all alone
Stunning lie, but lying's sin
Born from a breaking, aching home
That final breath, that final cry
Your pain is over for the day
Such a pure and pretty lie
Forever telling it again
