Tears of BloodTears of bloodTears of Blood4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Stream down my face.
I try to hide them
But they spread
Like a plague.
The pain is showing
All over my body.
The redness of blood,
Like a poisoned apple,
Has stained my skin.
My nails are caked
With the forgotten tears
Of those from the past
When I still cried
These tears of blood.
The red sinks into my hair,
Dying it the color of death.
I cannot escape it.
It is always there
Like a drunken tattoo.
Make these stop
I'm drowning in blood
The red sea is up to my chin
If I let out a scream,
I will drown and cease to exist.
Maybe that's the best.
BrokenI block off my heart.Broken3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Where do the tears get me?
Why am I so weak?
Why can't I be strong and proud?
The pain is sharp and cold.
I don't need to block off my heart, anymore,
With a cage.
It is already broken.
Only to be swept up by the next predator in waiting.
I must be strong,
To be alive with no heart.
I am not beautiful, I admit.
Because I have scars.
Can't you leave me in solitude?

I've been well,
I couldn't find the time to tell,
Haven't seen you in a while,
Don't you know I have to force a smile,
You ask my why I'm sad,
I tell you that I've gone mad,
I haven't come too far,
From the place I thought I once knew,
Just got lost along the way,
When I'll find myself is too hard to say,
We crossed both lines,
And ignored all the signs,
I look to my side,
And wonder why I tried,
I miss the beat my heart skips,
Before I knew the truth.
Behind The MaskBehind The Mask7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Behind the mask there is a girl
Who long ago left this world
To her funeral no one came
But she kept acting, just the same
Her feet kept moving as her mind slowed
But the signs she never showed
Look behind her eyes and youll see
Theres nothing there, just what used to be
Ask again, shell say shes fine
She always says it, every time
But shes so far from ok
Never again will she see the day
Stuck inside an eternal night
She begs you to put out her light
She cannot stand to bare pain
But she breathes just the same
Shes asking you to kill her now
Shed kill herself, but she doesnt know how
A thousand knives cut her side
But no one hears her shrieking cry
No one will ever come to her aid
So shell lie there bleeding, forever delayed
Dead on the inside, but alive on the out
Stuck between two worlds, with a scream and a shout

This thought has always haunted me.
I have yet to follow through,
I fear that I'm to weak to.
I just don't know what to do,
The pills, I could not get past two.
My razors only pierced the skin,
Of this predicament I'm in.
Nothing I do ever will,
Destroy the heart I could not kill.
Can someone please tell me why,
It's so hard to simply die?
The Stars Drop From the SkyI think of you and the stars drop from the sky:The Stars Drop From the Sky4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The world stops spinning--
Nothing is left but you and I.
There was a garden, in the beginning
When the world was round and the sun was gold.
When love was first made it was meant to grow old
But a chunk of poison lodged in my throat.
I fell asleep and I fell to the ground
I was trapped in a dream but then I was found
And vigorously kissed--I remember this--
I woke in your arms adrift in a boat.
In another life, in a world less cold,
I could have been a butterfly
And flown to dreams that I've never seen
We could have been monarchs, king and queen.
Yes, here is love, but I do not know
If it will melt with the springtime snow
If it will fall with the stars from the sky
But at least for now it's just you and I.

Caught between nowhere and nothing (and love)
I suppose I still want your tired heart,
Your worn-out soul, your nameless dreams (your love).
Once, long ago, I believed in fairies
And golden rainbows, falling stars (and love).
Don't do anything. Don't speak, sleep or breathe
Just disappear, without my heart (or love).
Promises are broken or surrendered
Caught on the cusp of hopelessness and doubt.
I suppose I knew this day was coming
But you cried too long to figure it out.

Who will leave you cold and crying at night
And the candles will burn but never as bright
As the eyes of the love who held you tight.
Will they come home and kiss you?
When alone will they miss you?
When they die will you cry?
Because you know they will die.
They will die and so will you and so will I.

I may not always do the right thing, but I try to be kind to you before being kind to myself.
Intelligence has nothing to do with actions and (over)reactions when real love arrives.
Passion annuls patience, caring drives us to hard places that caution would scream "no".
Love is painful, both for the lover and the loved, it is full speed over the cliff of reason.
There is no road map for a relationship, you are on the way before the destination is agreed.
Speed limits do not apply, no wonder we become reckless and take bends and bridges too fast.
No wonder we have accidents, driving blind in a mist of love only one hand on the wheel.
It doesn't really matter what I say, you have already judged me as unrealistic, a dreamer.
Reality comes later; when we start it is a dream, we have finally met 'the love of our life'.
And what a love, the eye only sees the beauty, it does not notice the talons or

Digging my grave againI know there is sorrow and violence within my soul.Digging my grave again4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And deep in the arms of my sins,
I cry within the darkness I have created all on my own.
Tilling my own grave once more.
Feeling my arms ache with exertion.
Needing to breath and be set free.
Over and over again I cry.
Thoughts overwhelming me.
Depression killing me.
Life fuels the fire that feeds my soul.
And nothing fits together.
Confusion within my darkened void.
Hurt in my veins. It keeps pulsing.
Poisoning me, breaths in my chest get harsher.
But Life keeps filling my soul.
but my heart feels hurt.
And its hard to feel strength inside anymore.
Let silence reign on.
When my hurt cant take anymore pain.
And so I keep tilling my grave.
So I can bury myself under again.
Those daysEveryone has those days.Those days3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Those days when the alarm goes off and climbing out of bed feels like climbing Everest.
Those days when the simplest of tasks, like pouring a bowl of cereal, feels like an impossibility.
When it feels like you'll never smile again.
Or maybe cry forever.
The days when you wonder what the point is.
When eternal sleep is preferable to a life of misery.
But you don't give in.
You climb Everest.
Complete the impossible tasks.
Plaster on a smile and fake your way through the day.
You chatter cheerfully with customers.
Laugh and joke with your coworkers.
And every unkind word feels like a stab to your heart.
But you never let anyone know how you really feel.
No one sees the hairline cracks forming in your façade.
No one sees the swallowed sobs.
The blinked-back tears.
Or the scars, physical and mental, that you keep hidden.
Your grit and determination to seem normal pushing them down.
Making everyone think you're happy, bubbly even.

There is some world meeting, and, uhm...Canada was there. But, like, he's all sad, since no one notices him. Aww.
And then uh...England comes...and he sees Canada, And so he's all like, "Hi America.", cause he thinks he America! DERP!
Canada gets pissed, because he's not America!
So he takes out a hockey stick out of no where, and then hits England's face.
And so England dies... in one hit.
Stuff happens, and, uhm all of the other nations die, for whatever reason, probably because Canada was possessed by a demon! Because, you know, THAT MAKES COMPLETE FREAKING SENSE!!!!!!!
So, there's over-exaggerated blood everywhere (Since it's an anime, right?). Then Canada looks at you.
Yes, you (Insert name here).
And he says "My waifu."
Then suddenly, millions of fangirls scream chase Matthew. Because they love him. A lot. LIKE A LO-
And so he killed them.
Megaman Vs. Bass As the glowing energy bullet hits my chest, I once again taste bitter defeat. How can this be? I'm more advanced in every way. My shots fire faster. My speed is unrivaled. I was built to kill. But somehow, he always succeeds. Why? He was never meant for combat. His design is primitive when compared to mine. His buster a mere pea shooter. His cyan armor is frail and dull when in the presence of my magnificent, black plating. I remove my helmet and look at the damage done to my previously flawless body. My wiring now fully exposed, I feel vulnerable. At any moment he could end my life, putting my prime objective to a permanent halt. One more shot is all it would take. I look up at him as he stares at me with a sort of sadness. His eyes were full of what could easily be mistaken for human emotion, but we were machines. Nothing more. He extends his hand in a display of sympathy. I loathe him more than ever.Megaman Vs. Bass3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

I knew better than to make such a late visit, but the java sanctuary in my neighbourhood has a rooftop patio and a heavenly view to the mountains. I sat until about 10:30 watching a glorious sun set behind a nice poofy cloud formation. Drinking coffee always gets me thoughtful too. As a result, I reflected on how the sun setting wasn't what soothed me. No, I think what I was drinking in more than the coffee was just feeling the earth move in its easy confident way. And I was kind of getting in tune with that. Whatever that means. I'm kind of kooky that way, in that I like to think me and the earth are totally related. So maybe if I can feel the earth turning I'll ...I don't know, ma

Feed me your inspirations and desires. I've gone so long without nourishment. How can I help you if you can't communicate your needs. I look among you all. There isn't one unifying thought connecting any of you, but your faith in me moves me to action.
I awake to the sound of a chain dragging. Clanks. Rattles. Is that the cry of a child?
The mages believe they have fooled me. Do they not hear my warning.
The price of deceit is death. But they don't listen. They believe they have won. The chant roars. One lone voice sings out. It's a binding spell. The followers respond in turn.

There's something I must ask of you;
I've had to leave my man behind,
Please protect this heart of mine.
Protect his spirit, strong and bold,
Keep him sheltered from the cold;
Protect his laughter, soft and light,
Protect his mind, protect his might.
Protect his eyes, with their humorous spark,
Hold him back, when he starts to snark,
And keep his hair that same dark brown;
Make him smile, instead of frown.
Let all of his dreams come true,
May he do everything he's wanted to,
May he me lucky in all that he does;
May he find a new woman he loves.
Let there be no obsticles in his way,
Always a friend to chases his hurt away.
May he look back on us, without pain,
And think of it as an expirience gained.
Holy mother, of love and life,
Please protect him from this strife;
And help him to one day understand,
Why I had to leave my man.
Man vs Nature, Nature vs ManAll is ever so peaceful in the depths of mother nature's expanding garden. Descending rays of warmth from the sky shine upon the family of trees and its fellow inhabitants. The softness of the wind and the rustling of leaves perfectly sync in with the chirping of nature's feathered friends. And in the center of the evergreen stands a young stag, consuming a number of green delicacies the forest has to offer.Man vs Nature, Nature vs Man5 months ago in Settings More Like This
The facade of serenity however comes to a close, when reality lands a thunderous blow. The sudden uproar frightens the birds into fluttering away from the Earth and up into the heavens. Everything grows dead silent as the wake up call echoes throughout the wood, then fades into obscurity. The stag has collapsed onto the soil, and the greenery surrounding the creature is stained with crimson red.
"Please forgive me…" a scruffy voice calls out to the stag with sheer minimal sincerity.
