I can lose my way without you
I just forgot you and your lies
I'm sick of your useless words
Noise that breaks my silence sweet
Insignificant notes of your false life
When your nightmares embrace you
When the night is so cold and black
At the end, you shout my name.

But i keep trying couse maybe one day it will happen
One day i will fly

I've always known there was more to my life than what meets-the-eye. Even as a young child, I was always different, isolated from my peers. Something about me never let others close they always seemed to be intimidated by me.
Because of this, my childhood was a dark and lonely one. My past is a history that few will ever know, and fewer still will understand.
But only a few years ago did I realize that I am not completely alone in this world. No... There are more like me plenty more. In fact, there is a whole community of us, each from different walks of life, different races, differe

Finding your faith, beginning to try
Leaving behind the preconceived notions
Placing your trust in other's devotions
Looking ahead and taking the leap
Believing in wings that no one can see
Reaching beyond your physical self
Learning to feel the one somewhere else
Questioning those who seem to know best
They haven't known your life and its test
Never forgetting the things you have learned
Even though they can prove false in turn
Searching the strange 'scape that's inside
A whole other world, waiting to fly
Feeling the energy reach through all nature

All alone. She stood in a crowded room. Lost. Lonely. She recognized nameless faces. She did not know them. They did not know her. She longed for companionship, yet could not reach out. She turned. Looked. Sought a friend and saw only the smiling, laughing faces of strangers.
The heavy beat of the music was an assault upon her ears. Greasy chips and harsh, carbonated drinks. She took a plate and a few of the otherwise untouched veggie sticks, scooped up some dip. Bumped. Jostled by these people she should know. She gave an unnoticed apology. Tension.
She found a vacant corner. Pushed herself into it. She clos

Have you ever seen
The grand lost kingdoms of the south?
The pink trees who dance in the eastern spring?
The great white carpets of the north?
The untamed, giant forests of the west?
Have you ever
Tasted the cool moonlit air
On a foggy Autumn night?
Have you ever felt
The feral embrace of the cold, murky waters
In the romantic heart
Of the southern swamps?
Have you ever tasted the dust
Grit and gravel of the open road
Traveling with it as your companion?
Have you ever felt her embrace
Among the great flat highway
Under grand starlit summer night
With the Earth's support and love below you?

Because the waves had no rhythm
The tides, no rhyme.
And lying on the shore

And still, you failed to understand

the removal of my appreciation,
and the slow, scraping, sterile surgery
performed on my heart-strings.

A tale of a torture deviceOur Renaissance ladyA tale of a torture device2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
is an old woman
with mock cathedrals
and paintings of medieval clashes
in her living room. She has built
her own torture device out of trees
and broken records. When she climbs
a sycamore, her shirt snags
on a branch and a song stagnates
at empty echoes. When she winces,
she lists all of the things that people
who hate themselves do.
She named her pain Stammering Zacchaeus.
The best torture devices know
how not just how to destroy the body,
but how to humiliate it as well.
What do you think the eyes are going

When it's time to admit you see nothing, cry.

All the day long.
When I awake,
I'm all alone,
The house is dark,
My folks aren't home.
When my mommy does come,
I try and be nice,
So maybe I'll get just
One whipping tonight.

My daddy is back
From Charlie's Bar.
I hear him curse,

Protruding from a pout
You know nothing can fill her spot

Let her memory enter your thoughts

The melancholy look
Of such sadness to see
Like a page from Edgar Allen Poe's poetry book
A broken honey bee
You said you loved her
But that was opposite the truth

This investigation doesn't require a sleuth
The demise hidden in her eyes
As you shut the door
Can't you hear the raven cries?
As it quotes "never more"
