Infected with DeceptionThere's something creeping up on me,Infected with Deception5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Pulling me out of the darkness I've grown accustomed to,
Forcibly tearing apart the shell that has been created,
Smashing the bits, rendering reconstruction impossible,
I'm blinded as the first crack lets in bits of sunlight,
Unable to handle the emotion that has been null for so long,
Furthermore, the emotion that thoroughly ruined what stability I had left.
The pianists play their sad tunes as the sun rises again,
Melodic music I've never heard so clear before, due to the thick encasement,
As the tune grows louder, the crack grows larger, pouring in stronger rays of light,
Again, I'm blinded, unable to comprehend not only the beauty of the tune,
But now the immaculate sky, pure white clouds gently passing by.
Soon after the pianist's song ends, another song begins,
This song stranger than the last, only soft chirping noises to be heard,
The song, barely audible, seemed to continue forever,
My only wish was to hear the song louder, and it was grant

I was swayed by the patterns & got involved
It was a trap, a rail to danger but I ignored
How could I be careless & fall to false hopes?
If deceived by the look, I just cannot tell
Too blind folded to realize I set it all by myself
How can someone trust through words of cushions
I wish I never look nor care on all the distortions
It's a crime to seek the good in all else's eyes
Because If you fail, It will all lead to suicide
I was amazed by the trick that dropped all my merit
Damn it all to innocence, Damn, it was nonsense
I feel like my chest is supporting a hollow block
An infarction I availed from all the inane lies
Something inside crawls and feast on my insides
Will it ever go away? I just want to forget and hide.
My heart's maybe too effortless, so how could you?
When I'm too high to fall and break like a plane crash
Maybe here's the reason why some people never trusts
Wanting to be preserved whole just not to fade in dust.
Forbidden LoveForbidden LoveForbidden Love4 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Being far away,
seems everlasting long
Even for a single day,
it just feels so wrong
They can't see each other,
because their love is forbidden
People musn't find out,
they have to keep it hidden
Nothing can be changed,
that's far too late
For years without their love,
that's their sad fate
Dreaming of each other,
with their lips sealed
On each others lips,
but their destiny can't be healed
In the end, they die alone,
while the wind is blowing
the candles of love are still flowing!
Romantic tale of the cherry blossom treeRomantic tale of the cherry blossom tree,Romantic tale of the cherry blossom tree4 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
One single drop,
is all it takes
A butterflies birth,
the memories in my heart reawakes
Under the soft bed of flowers,
the cherry blossom tree
The flower petals unfolds its legend,
the legend of our loves beauty
I remember, a long time ago,
the sound of a distant flute
A melancholy song,
turning the godly elements mute
The beautiful butterfly,
proud, without doubt
Your flute attracts her innocence,
a maidens heartly sprout
I pray to the holy ancestors,
the ancient spirits of the air
For luck, fortune and purity,
to bless our love affair
The bluebirds whisper your song,
through a cherry blossom leaf
To me, the free-spirited butterfly,
a message from my lover to retrieve
The petals of the tree leave their mother,
a symbol of death, just like a crow
Even the purest butterflies pass on,
an unbreakable vow
A butterfly never looses her precious memories,
our flaming passion, a glowing ember
Even after all these centuries,
I still remember...

Show me picasso, show me Monet
Whatever game you want, that's what I'll play
No matter what you need, that's what I'll say
It's simply a matter of keeping the peace
What you have on me is more than a lease
Of each other we both have a piece
We laugh together, cry together, we are forever
Tell me what you want and I'll pull the right lever
You take every action you make as your last endeavor
When it's not okay and when it's far greater than that
I know you're there to tip your hat
The support you offer is just that
We are one in body and mind
Though occasionally towards one another we get unkind
Every relationship has bumps to find
Play together, laugh together,
Cry together, live together.
Separation is impossible
and entirely implausible.

I bit my lip, trying to hold back another insult. This had been going for hours already. Fucking bastard. Why did he have to go? Why did he want to fight? Why did he want to leave me...again.
Staring at the Spanish man in front of me, I swallowed down my fear and pain. I could detect the determination in his emerald eyes. I knew that he wanted this more than anything. Perhaps I was being selfish? I wanted to keep him safe, yet his own people were dying. What's worse, was the fact that he could feel it.
Feel their suffering.
Feel the sorrow.
Feel them dying.

I said I was confused;
She turned around;
I said I love you...
She walked away;
I grabbed her arm;
She said what's up?
I asked what was in her mind...
She said she didn't care;
I said screw off;
She said she didn't love me;
I said she would never know how much I loved her...
She said the same;
I said that her limit was clear;
She walked away;
I broke my chains...
I turned around;
To never look back;
The tears already dried out;
On the past months...
And the love -
The love for which I swore for my life;
The love which burned like hell's fire in my soul;
Now burned away and left no ashes...
I walked away;
Looking to the moon
To never turn back,
Enchanted by the moonlight...
For that night,
And ever after.
My soul no longer,
would long only for the love of a woman...
I was finally free...

I would expect you least of all
to praise my poems, spelling out
my inner conflict, and my fall.
When thinking of the time I knew
you once, when I was in a shroud
I must admit, its memory
fades like the fragments of a cloud.
But on receiving your critique,
I must admit I'm grateful, glad,
that someone likes the way I write,
and doesn't think the words all bad.
And yes, this poem is not fine:
the rhythm's wrong and so's its name:
the rhyme's not neat, it's incomplete,
so hastened it puts me to shame.
Though we do not speak, and never meet,
I'm grateful all the same.

If I could make a mark on you,

You knew those other boys wanted me,

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.

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

The wives on horses follow. too.
We shed a tear, but not for you.
You lied, you shot us one by one.
One less each shot and soon we're done.
You hurt and stole our life away.
May we have peace? Please, might we stay?
Remain, relive, refresh, renew
We spare our land, we share it too
But never with the likes of you.
You kill the land, like your killed promise.
You burn it up, you tore it up.
You don't see life. You will not miss
The light and love that this land brings:
Summer, winter, fall and spring.
Please let us stay here, let it grow.
Appreciate it, as you go.
Remain, relive, refresh, renew
We'll share this land if you will, too.
We'll live together -- live with you
We'll teach our children -- teach them right.
But we're the light and you're the night.
We're opposites, we both collide.
We will be fair, but we won't strive.

Her life blood ran through our hands

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

Now we speak with a ghosts vioce

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

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;

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.

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
