Heartbreak MasqueradeI can't remember what it feels like to be happy...
My smile no longer shrouded in sincerity.
It is like a heartbreak masquerade, fooling everyone;
Exhausted, I remove my mask when the day is done.
I'm a professional at what I do: I hide what I feel -
When I get hurt, I pretend like it is no big deal.
In reality, it's killing me; feel my heart breaking
The sad part? My friends don't know that I'm faking.
I can't remember the sound of my laughter any more;
Feels odd when I smile, like I've never done it before.
My heart soaring with joy - well, that feeling is gone
Dreaming about another guy that isn't you feels wrong.
It is like I
The Super Hero DreamThe Super Hero Dream.The Super Hero Dream11 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Since I was young I've always had this reoccurring dream.
As immature and juvenile at it may seem.
I'd have this one fantasy
That me and my peers were apart of a heroic, super natural team.
We would serve and protect the world from impending doom.
But every morning I always end up waking up too soon.
I would stir and gaze around my marvel inspired room.
And attempt to
Move objects with just will of my mind.
Completely alter my anatomical design.
Teleport in and out of realties and dimensions.
Communicate with anyone via a telepathic connection.
Have an invulnerable metal emerge from my knuckles.
In a Little Girl's MindThere sits the girl with the things in her eyesIn a Little Girl's Mind1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Monsters, destruction, and sweet butterflies
Hopscotch and daisies, surrounded by screams
Beautiful dresses now torn at the seams
Crayons and paintbrushes, villains and grins
Young, gladsome innocence, hatred and sins
Little red houses on roads left to fade
Gorgeous moonlight shining off of the blade
Blood pouring out as she cries her own name
Knowing she's forced to take each bit of blame
She could have stopped it and left it behind
All of these things in her troubled young mind
She could have saved them if she dared to try
Rather, though, she left herself there to die.
The BestYou may be dreary at timesThe Best1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Not much, simply a tad
You may get down on yourself sometimes
But you're the best friend I've ever had.
You seem to be the only thing
Able to keep me sane in this place
We could go and escape
Some place far away, you and me
Some magical land in space
Without you, where would I be?
Without you, I am not free
You are the key to my sanity
You are the best,
Always better than the rest
I've said it before
Many a time,
I'll say it again
I love you.
ChemistryWithin your eyes I felt a calling,Chemistry1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It froze me in place.
As if somehow my mind just knew,
I'd yearn for your embrace.
I couldn't fight this magnetism,
Pulling me in your direction
Every action turned to the thought,
"How can I win your affection?"
I knew that you were perfect,
From the second that we spoke
It was as if I'd fallen into a dream,
And gladly I never woke
For wrapped up in your arms
I found my greatest desire
Someone to make me feel alright,
Regardless of what may transpire
I used to dread the future,
There was so much left unknown.
But as long as I've got you
I will always have a home.
Good MorningGood Morning.Good Morning10 months ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I have a distressing tendency of waking up too early.
The sun escaping from the blinds always begins to stir me.
Just as I begin to behave sullen and surly, her presence averts me.
I turn to my side to see the vein in her left arm pump overtly.
She's completely immersed by the covers.
I have to resist temptation not to hold and hug her.
Her body suddenly moves with a spontaneous shudder.
Her mouth moves but not a word or sound does she utter.
I stare at her intently and push her stray hairs behind her ear.
Realising that loosing this woman will be my most dreadful fear.
Her eyes momentarily open just to make sure that

That small yearning to swoon

Little girl, little girl
why are you crying?
Inside your restless soul
your heart is dying.
In the end you were meant to run
from the absolute start,
to find the truth behind the 'fun'
and protect your fragile heart.
I know how it is my dear,
to have that doubt making fear.
To see the infinite lies
and eventual demise.
To become enraptured in want of truth
making you an almost too accurate sleuth.
But something has already changed,
as your heart has became deranged.
Because you've always seen them run away,
NumbWhat is this feeling?Numb9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I don't understand.
I want to explain
But I don't think I can.
Is it really true?
Am I turning this numb?
It just can't be!
I must feel some!
Why is this happening?
Why can't I feel?
Is this all just a dream
Or is all of this real?
Someone please tell me.
Please help me feel.
I'm so tired of feeling numb.
I just wanna heal.
The pain, the sorrow,
The joy, the tears.
Yes! I want all of them!
Even all the fears!
I'm so wanting,
Longing to feel again.
This curse is so haunting,
It's like a dead end.
So, if I were you,
Be glad you can feel.
Be thankful you're not numb.
At least you are real.

Would you rather I was a bitch,

As opposed to this pointless screw-up?
Would you rather I was a sheep,
Or simply less of a so-called creep,

I don't care about perfect,
I don't care about being liked,
I just want to be happy,
I want to be more than crappy,
In a world full of Me and You;

I have secrets built up I just can not tell
Locked forever in my heart are where they will dwell
Though there are some to you I may one day share
I doubt many in the end would ever really care
Secrets about the world, philosophy, and stars
Secrets that will ignite flames in the dark
Secrets that will move oceans across lands
Secrets about God and the common man
So sometimes at night I talk to myself
Sharing feelings only I could have felt
Self-reflection helps me to heal
Because only I understand the way that I feel
We all have these secrets; some bigger than others
Some we share with friends and some with our mothers

You don't need me
That's why you left
I'm the one that needs you
I don't feel the need to change myself to make you want me again
If who I am isn't good enough, then maybe I'm better off alone
I wish things could go back to being like they were
Me and you
Fitting perfectly together
Letting everything disappear
I know I'm young
People tell me I'll find someone else
That I'll love again
But I don't know if I can be that open with anyone other than you
I'm too guarded
I have trouble seeing myself with anyone but
I know how to be strong and that I shouldn't let one relationship
Society's FreaksThis world is cruelSociety's Freaks1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
if you're different from the rules,
but there is a place
for unknown faces,
where the freaks unite
ignoring society's insult-packed bites
Yet they don't give in
to this world's sins.
They keep their march steady,
they're always ready
to get up, ignoring the disapproval everyone sends
til the pain and darkness is at an end.
One day, you will have to choose a path
along with the sins, whether greed or wrath,
choose the path different from the rest,
because that is where you'll shine best.

Compel me to surrender.
But I will not hear;
I defy my contender.
Defeat is not an option;
There is no other way:
Survive against all odds
To die another day.
'Tis the oldest battlecry;
The only ultimatum.
Fight until you die
Rather plain verbatim.
To be classified as "alive,"
Survive, survive, survive.

You're still the same
Playing the guilty card
Only gets you so far
Real victims are a mess
That wine on your pretty dress
Can in no way compare
To the bombs dropped in the air
Lie in a hole by a bay
Under gunfire ablazed
And then maybe you'll say
"I am having better days."
The dead weight that you carry
The problems you parry
Are not as bad as it seems
Go back to bed and dream
Your soul would never last
If you were given the gas
And from what I can amass
Your heart's as weak as glass
Blurring color from the scene
Overdramatic you may be
But to others you annoy
Their ears with your ploys

I only see her just once in a while
Now that we are so far, miles apart
Yet her smile is always in my heart

No one went near her,

Lovely Anne lived in a world
where the clocks struck thirteen
where everyone loved
where everyone smiled

objects and papers

For the world I am displayed;
They always watch but cannot see
through my masquerade.
I feel every moment fly;
My heart is beating, pulse racing,
breath held as I lie.
My innocence I can't defend;
I know that surely this will linger
'til my very end.
I brought this all upon myself;
Mask upon mask, lie upon lie
like valueless wealth.
Dare I take these masks off no!
My former self haunts me
everywhere I go.
False glory, false honor, false fame;
With all these masks I seem to have
forgotten my own name.

The Gallery of LoveIn this crystal riverThe Gallery of Love1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The crimson blooms of pain
Burning in times fire
Love ever leaves a stain
Read the sacred map
Inscribed on every soul
Every mark and blemish
Recalled upon a scroll
Teardrops from a broken heart
The echo of a smile
Every portrait painted
To mark another mile
Riding on a white horse
Or falling in the sea
Blossoms in the wind
What will be, will be
Fragile wings of beauty
Petals that will fall
Wind and rain and sun
Living for them all
The power of love deceiving
Leaves no room for choice
Our hearts will sing its melody
Our souls must give it voice...
