If I could make a mark on you,
Maybe everything that I gave up,
Would be worth it.
You knew those other boys wanted me,
And you didn't care.
The only man who was blind,
To my prestige.
I drew my own heart-blood,
To stain your head blue.
As though a colour would last.
Longer than your heart would beat.
That day was erased from history,
Three months that never existed,
Ten nights that I'm forbidden to forget.
Your hair was long when we first met.

A lily fair,
a walk in fresh cool air.
But you take my breath away
and you hold me in sway
to the beat of your heart.
A beautiful work of art,
more lovely than I can stand.
Will you hold my hand?
You make me melt.
If you knew how I felt
about you my love,
my sweetly singing dove,
would you feel the same?
Would you call out my name
and run to my side
loving me with pride?
Throw your arms around me,
surround me with your love.
You fit me like a glove,
holding me tight
all through the night.
With you near
I have no fear
as long as you are close
I feel complete.
Let our lips meet
together in a kiss
so that I know nothing is amiss.
When I run my fingers through your hair
I know you are truly a lily fair.
The Proud CherokeeTortured injustice, indescribable wrong.The Proud Cherokee8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We must fight! We must be Strong!
Alas, under leaden assault endure we cannot.
From our homes we are forced to flee, which with our hands we wrought.
From iron and fire our fear doth rise.
By what right do these men surmise
That they may take our home,
And force us the plains to roam?
They drive us like buffalo toward a cliff,
toward an ever-widening rift.
Our warriors are brave, our knives are sharp
Could we not make war upon their forts escarp'd?
We would die 'tis true, but for the white man
We could make it a day to rue!
We could fight! Take iron to scalp, and knock hair askew!
I long to sink my blade deep within
To release the warm, crimson flow from white man's skin.
women weep and children wail
When in death ships we sail.
In meat they give us maggots squirm,
In flour weevils swim, from the bread crawls a worm.
My pride will not give me luxury of a tear.
I must be stern, while within my heart doth sear.
Though the savages drive us west

Zim sobbed a little at the thought of Dib not being here with him or even at least seeing their child hatch out of the egg, and their child's first words, his first birthday, his first time killing a human during the time of hunting season for irkens, and the first time he learns how to walk. Zim teared up more, trying to keep in his tears but it just trailed down his cheek. He whimpered softly to himself as he held the egg close to his bare chest to keep it warm. Zim looked down to the egg then petted the top of the shell. He did smile at it because of this thought Zim had about the smeet looking like a human, with no irken features.
Zim sighed sadly to himself after that thought went away. "Why is Zim so stupid... It's because of Zim that the Dib-human left him, and now Dib won't

Une délicate odeur anisée s'élevait du bol de grès simple déposé sans autre apprêt sur la table où le maître prenait ses repas lorsqu'il s'adonnait, comme ce jour-là, à quelques sulfureuses expériences. Le petit lutin domestique déposa à côté les quelques gougères appétissantes et dorées qu'il venait juste de sortir du four. Il aurait bien croqué à pleines dents dedans et goûté un fond de velouté, s'il n'avait tant craint la colère du sorcier. D'ailleurs, ne devait-il pas avant tout veiller à ce que le plat reste bien chaud, en attendant le retour de son irascible maître ? Mieux valait ne pas savoir où celui-ci était parti...

You belong where you reside
And reside where you belong
But what about natives
Discriminated and hated
For their place
And their race
You walk until your bare feet are black and bloodied
Your soul feels colder than your soles
Driven by lords of lies
Picked off like flies
And you watch as your family crumbles
You are born into these people of pain
You are rejecting your own reflection
Because of the deception
You were fed
Blood boils in your head
Not beaten down
We will lick these wounds
We will wear the blood and bruises like war paint
Our chains will rattle
You better prepare
Prepare for warfare
Prepare for battle
You made us obey
Never heard what we had to say
Now I want you to pray
You are the prey

At one with the Earth and her creatures
We felt her very pulse
in the streams and rivers
Her life blood ran through our hands
We talked with the animals
The trees, and plants, and all insects
were our brothers
As close as blood were we
We communed with the great gods
and soared with the Eagles
We listened with desperation
as mother Earth called to us
to defend her creations, her childrenm
from the pale demons
We fwll alongside our brothers
our blood and theirs mixing together
and returning to the earth
Now we speak with a ghosts vioce
our ethereal song carrying among tall trees
and deep valleys
into the hearts of people
still we cry out
our mother is dying
Will no one help?
Will no one save her?

You and Gilbert were outside of the dorm rooms of the boarding school you were at. Sitting under the large willow tree, Gilbert held you in his arms, he brought up the idea to leave school. Leave? How? The boarding school you were at was a high security sort of place. It was almost like prison, there was large walls surrounding the entire campus, and the campus was very large. It was almost impossible to get away from the school. The only

The memory of you like a pendant
Burning against my ribs,

That makes it so hard to see what's right.
SocietySociety is like a penitentiary,Society2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Of regressive and parochial minds,
Cuffing us to an era of darkness,
In the blessed name of moral binds,
But in the light of self renaissance,
When you set your soul bird free,
You'll see that there's no salvation,
Walking beneath the banyan tree.
So stand by your canons,
In Stuttgart or Stalingrad,
For how can anybody ever know,
What is good and what is bad?
As you cede every common ethos,
You'll realize what society is,
Such a picture perfect paradise,
Seen through a blind man's eyes.
Eternal LightEternal Light2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Kingdoms may crumble,
Flesh may wither,
Even the details of this story
Will become faded and obscure
But all through the ages,
Twin hearts are bound
In eternal friendship,
Defying the hands of time
Their faces may change,
Along with their simple names;
But they still persist,
Their souls now immortal
Shattering the mold
With sharp, impenetrable hearts;
Defying their pain,
And mocking their suffering
They are the light
That will guide us through
To brighter days
And dream-drenched nights.
No matter what may come,
Or what may be lost,
They still walk side-by-side;

Quiet tears shaking my form
Oh to have you lay with me and keep me warm
To have you close by my side
Please show me your love and don't hide
From the way I feel about you
My eyes fill daily with the morning dew
Lamenting the great distance of our loneliness
Remembering the feel of your long dark tress
Tickling its way lightly across my chest
Feeling the gentle heaving of your breast
When we are next to each other at rest
Closer together than flowers pressed
Between the pages of our lives
A Lily, colorful, vibrant and brightly she thrives
Soaking up the light of the Son,
Reflecting it and showing the hearts she's won.
I am hers, now and forever,
I just pray that some day again we'll be together.
Fishbowlborrowing,Fishbowl2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
we breathe like
navy stripes on rice paper
and life for us is only
canary sidewalks and
shorelines like the
soft soft curve of
your parted lips,
but a gentle storm
is still a storm, and
this we know well.
and what do you think we are made out of,
star-flesh and street dust,
molded slowly into
spidery eyelashes and glowing
and knuckles like crushed roses--
art is a human thing
even when you crumple
into the plush carpet
to lie for days
and days and
[do not forget the things i tell you,
liquid whispers on harsh nights--]
we pluck nerves like
tulips in a sensory garden,
only for play and
never for work--daylight
is an unwound tendon
wrapped tight around
wide wide dream eyes,
glassy and knowing
like the whole ocean in a fishbowl;
i tell you for the last time,
i love you.

He sits there
Unseen by most
Waiting for his true potential to blossom
For someone to see something in him

But that has yet to happen
For people to see

Der blinde WaisenBeneath the cradle woven by elms,Der blinde Waisen2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Overturned by Mother's clumsy hands,
A love child born to a despised realm
Where dark desires scar the naked land.
Possibilities poison the well.
His breast is stained black by the umbrage
As Innocence fled his heart of storms
That rests upon Cocytus' ledge.
Even Hell's inferno could not warm
A withering soul below Satan's.
He was born facing the canopy,
Unable to drown himself in his tears
As he peers at the Sun gingerly
Uncurling its fingers as it nears,
Yet never to touch, only to tease,
The boy with eyes, but no light to see.
Beautiful DecayCrisp and cool beneath my feetBeautiful Decay2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Fleeting autumn days and lightly falling leaves
Breathing in decay, I admire the forest floor
There's beauty in the death of seasons that I've never seen before
Animals storing food for sleep beneath the snow
Trees turning color to prepare for next year's growth
The toasted oranges and reds
I hope I look that beautiful after I drop dead
I dread the coming cold
A season full of black and white as depression takes a hold
The bold coffee and cigarettes seem to help a bit
But nothing truly warms my hands, not embers, mugs or mitts
So I sit here by the fire
The orange and red of the flames brings about this great desire
The inspiring thoughts
Of how autumn's bound to come again
While winter just might not
They say the climate's changing
I hope that turns out true
Then autumn might be longer
Bringing thoughts of me to you
Because I live in fallen leaves
The colors are my past
I know I might be asking a lot
But please let the memories last

Two pairs of footprints line this sand
One for you, one for me
I see your hair blowing in the ocean breeze
Your heart as pure as the sea
The moonlight on these waves reflects
the glimmer in your eyes
And the bright shine of your tears
as we both said our goodbyes
Nothing can tear this apart
Our love is not yet through
I don't care how long it takes
I will return to you
I'll take you back, and again two pairs of
footprints will line the sand
One for you, one for me
Walking hand in hand
Unwilling FeelingsCertain things can't be rewrittenUnwilling Feelings2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Some wounds can never heal
Actions are performed on the wide open stage
A performance for all to see
People are like clowns
They wear masks of insecurity
Do they remember the days when they were the night
And could never be undone?
Those days of bliss and happiness
Are always the quickest to go
Why do people get so mad over trivial things?
Why do they forget their friends and family?
Some questions can't be answered by simply asking
It's plain to see what is in their heart
If one is observant enough
They see by the masks people create
And help them with the mixed up emotions in their soul
We can seize the whole day
Play in the confines of night
Never to be disturbed
By unwilling feelings...
