My Thoughts Are A StormThe scars you bear I wish I could
Die for, only the best do I want
For you, to be happy, the fault is
Mine own which tore us apart
Some days I was screaming inside
Yet I found complete happiness
With you, when you told me my
Apology was not accepted, it was
Like hearing news of an intimate
Suicide, your hate filled mind
Killed me inside, my thoughts
Are a storm, raging memories
Of every fight, every flaw fighting
For attention, yet the savage longing
To fall once more into you comforting
Arms, but who would I be if I
Allowed myself to go back?
Love a woman is not a crimeThe punishment fellLove a woman is not a crime3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
she is guilty
to have loved a witch
she is guilty
of making love
with this woman
detested by the villagers
alone on her cross
the wrists bloodstained
She waits that her mistress
saves his life with her magic
two days have past
she has not arrived yet
abandoned by the desire
that she thought loved
she waits slowly
that the skin dries
that crows eat its body
that pain gnaws her soul
it was not a witch
love a woman is not a crime
the village has judged
without knowing the truth
ForgottenThis crushing painForgotten3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
This endless loss
This hope is vein
Your heart is frost
I love you so
Can't let you go
Can't breathe a word
Tears freely flow
Have you forgotten already
the love we shared?
Have you forgotten already
us, the perfect pair?
Do you even hear me
I'm bleeding inside,
bleeding myself out.
What's lost is lost
But I can't give up.
What's gone is gone
But I still love.
You won't remember
come a few years time
that you broke my heart
and that I tried to die
You won't remember
when all is done
those days of life,
when we still danced
in the sun.

his kiss woke the day

tracing letters on my skin
and entwining his fingertips

i couldn't help but
close my eyes and
blind myself to everything

and carrying us beyond-
turning our wounds to

ApocalypseThe eagles fall from the sky as the clouds open up,Apocalypse3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The mountains roar as they fall in piles of dust,
With my eyes wide shut, I see,
That I could be the strongest man alive,
But even I will fall,
Leaves fall from the tree,
The water runs dry,
My tongue tastes nothing,
Because I refused to see,
Evil has a heart, and a heart has evil,
They still say we can't change,
That I can't change,
We are all going to die someday,
So let's share a drink as the world burns to ashes,
Let the people eat the heart,
Drink the blood of glory,
Because these are our last days,
One last moment,
One last hell yeah,
One last kiss,
One last kill,
The spirits will rise as the bodies fall,
Swipe in and take it all away,
As the buildings burn,
As the fingers run over the keys,
We will still remain the same,
We will always be the same,
Like the last chance,
This is our day,
Face your demons, because we're all dead,
We won't get any better,
But I remember this,

GrinningThis beautiful silence,Grinning3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
This strange sensation,
My trembling arms,
My wavering knees,
The grin on my lips,
You're to blame
for all of it.
The fault of your arms,
The fault of your grin,
The fault of you.
Oh, that grin,
When it grins,
I become so weak.
Powerlessness to resistance.
And you can tempt me,
And you can sway me,
And I'll go with the breeze,
as it whispers it's soft breath,
through my hair,
and into my lips,
and into me.
And I'll continue to grin,
as your sultry eyes pierce
I can only pray,
that you will grace me
with your own
or contented lip formation.
Because then I'm reminded that at least
you're kind of happy.
Everything I've ever wanted,
to the want
or the need
or the burning desire
that i have
for your happiness.

A Daughter's PleaMommy says she loves herA Daughter's Plea3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Daddy says he cares
But somehow everything they do
Reminds her they're not there
Sometimes she looks up for them
From her place, crying, on the floor
And she finds she's not surprised
When they're not waiting anymore
For baby girl to grow up
And dry her big blue eyes
'Cause they've seemed to have decided
That they can't see it when she cries.
It's easier for them to pretend
She knows how hard they've tried
To believe that she's just peachy
When, in fact, she's dying inside
And now they say she's older
She doesn't need them anymore
When she really needs them now
Even more than she did before
Mommy's been on drugs
Daddy's gone a far
And now this teen age girl
Wants to know just who they are
She needs to know what's up
She just wants to understand
Now that things are settled
Someone should take her hand
And guide her to the table
Where the new family sits
And explain to her slowly
Why she still doesn't seem to fit
She watches them grow weary

Weigh you down
Since rash decisions make you spin around
You stop and stare
Is there something there?
Brush your fingers across my hand
Not a mistake because I can feel you there
Squeeze my fingers
Smile at me
Hand goes numb
You miss me?
Finally after three long months you feel my pain
Only memories remain
Your eyes scream your pain
"I never stopped loving you
I couldn't if I tried
You are my first, my one and only
Please, one more chance

they fall into the lust, for the physical body
i fell for your brilliant brown eyes
but so much more then that kept my interest
it was your essence...
the very thing around you
your essence in whips of gold rolling off your shoulders
leaving traces when your fingers brush against the simples things
mesmerized i'd watch
slowly...like the gold flickering flames on you skin
like a gold fire
i fell in love with your beautiful soul
i became attached to your kiss
the tug in my chest like a rope
the tug that kept me coming back to you time after time
its you, only just a floating haze of gold in my head
a small flickering ball of light
the very core that strings your heart together
Death do us PartKnow the friend within;Death do us Part3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Your bond goes far deeper than skin.
Friends from the start, childhood spent together,
They fought and shared and dreamed as one.
Some say this friendship can last forever,
Kept alive by the warmth of the sun.
Soon enough, they are no longer young fools,
Off in the world, making memories.
Only with good time, do they learn the rules,
Learning from spilt milk and tear-stained diaries.
The joyous couple, then due to be married,
Far cries from the hooligans they once were.
Past thoughts and regrets were then buried;
It's as though their past was only a blur.
But at times, the fates can be cruel,
And chose that their love was not meant to be.
Heartbreak, one thing they do not teach in school,
Plunged that woman into a despaired sea.
Tears in her eyes, she grasped at her veil,
Watching as they took him away.
Unable to watch, she began to wail,
For she knew on this earth, she couldn't stay.
The wedding gown hung, limp and unworn,

I miss you, like a gash misses the knife that caused it.
Once upon a time, you played jigsaw with me.
You made a onehundred parts jigsaw out of me and hid one part,

Blood spilled out and I tried everything to fill the hollow spot.
Other knives. Spoons. Forks. Tea-bags. Memories. Ash. Clay (Even burned
clay). Paint particles. Book pages. Sand grains. Dust. Wine. Salt. Ink.
N o t h i n g matched. Nothing..
The mélange, out of cells suspended in a liquid called blood plasma, turned my clothes purple and my hands red.
And nothing fits.
I puzzled for a long time about what might have been the reason that you
made this cruel splitting with me (By the way, my heart sounds don't fit either..)
I think I'll never come to an end with this riddle.
Once I escape the box you built around me, there's already a new one.
But the colours inside are truly pretty.
Ninety-Nine versus One.
-the one I miss
is you and your sharp body.

With this intricate mask
That is painted different colors
And drawn on by the adolescent children that roam the streets.
Smile, for no one can see your true colors.
No one can see you holding the gun to your heart,
As you count the last breaths that come out of your mouth.
Cloth means nothing as the patterns change.
Slut. Nerd. Jock. Prep.
Nothing in this world is sacred anymore.
So smile, let no one see the emotions
That rampaged around in your body
Screaming against the cage of the heart
Wanting to get out, but not finding a way.Smile,
Because that beauty
Hides the evil inside.

Because for once i felt so whole, having him so near
But there is something inside of me just gnawing at my heart
Because that boy was never mine- not even from the start
I hope she knows how lucky she is- the gorgeous girl he talks so much about
Because she has the beautiful boy who was just lying in my bed
And she has access to the kindest words ever said
The words that take a permanent residence in my head
I love his family more than anything,and the way he fits into mine
I love the way he shakes my father's hand and the way he always hugs me goodbye
He does all of these things like they're the simplest things in the world
God i would give anything to be that gorgeous girl

Back to December
Snow falls heavily, from the ashen grey sky
Guilt fill my soul...forcing my heart to lie
The feelings deep within me, you will never know
someone come and save me, from the pain of letting you go....
The days that seemed so warm..all lost in the blizzard's wail
how you stopped calling me at night, or sending me some-mail
you hurt me countless times....
never felt sorry for your crimes...
So tonight, lets end this
seal it off with one last kiss
The tears flow down...without...consent...
I HAVE LOVED YOU TO THIS VERY EXTENT!!!
For now as I watch you walk away
let me think of our most joyful days...
you caused me pain...
so I did the same...

Laying there on my bed, my arms shaking with grief
Legs convulsing and lungs struggling
Not to slip back under the blade again
I gripped the pillow
Tried to imagine what you looked like when I last saw you
Your voice deeper
Enough to make me flinch
I knew you were there
Looking for me
Smiling like you always would when I'd say something sweet to make you blush
I tried to wrap my hands in my blanket and
Breath in and out
It's lucky for you I'm so strong
Because yesterday I managed
And I didn't slip under the blade

My soul is the colour of midnight,
All blacks and blues and shining stars.
This entire life has been a fight,
And I proudly wear the scars.
Though not all of them can be seen,
Some reside deep within my heart.
Many fear the places I've been,
For they know it tears me apart.
But I am no longer that girl,
No longer swayed by simple words.
Tired of pain, I gave life a whirl,
Comforted by the song of birds.
Here I am today, still alive,
Taking the life I have in stride.
Because within me, there is a drive,
To fight the scars and live with pride.

You know I used to think
Insanity was neat
I waited week by week
To be touched by that strange star
But now here we are
And I've been crawling in so far
Toppling off the bar
With just one drink
And I thank you for your strength
But it's been too long a length
Eventually we'll break
So you should know:
I want to be with you when you go
I hate the way the madness shows
I hate the way I bring you low
You need to leave...
And even though I'll grieve
My world out under me
Maybe I'll be reprieved
When I'm only all insane
Crazed, I'll forget your name
Hurt, you'll do the same;
Just know that before it came
You meant everything to me
Though I won't know, we still will be:
I believe our love is free
I'll keep your shadow near to me
I'll love you just as complete
Even in insanity
