Love at First Sight
The smallest look in your direction,
And I knew you were the one.
The way my heart stopped when my eyes met yours,
How I speechlessly gazed at you,
When I couldn't even blink an eye,
In fear of you disappearing
In that one second,
Becoming a figment of my imagination.
The sparks between us flew instantly,
And I knew it all pointed to love.
I was a victim of Cupid and his toxic arrows.
You were the one,
My angel sent from above,
My prince coming to save me on his steed,
My sould mate who would stand by me everyday,
My other half who would love everything that I am,
The keeper of my chipped heart,
Who would make it

A beautiful being
Bloomed with every handsome feature
Dusting away all of my tears
Defending me from all of my fears
Whose to say you're not my savor?
Filling that hollow void in my heart
I want to be with you, Never apart
Together forever, What a fantastic dream
But in the end, We can never be
Our worlds they differ, they do
Even so, That won't stop me from loving you

Look at the sun, shining down on the world
Providing warmth for all the little boys and girls
Eating their ice cream that they got for free.

There's mothers laughing and having a great time
There's even a guy who's a very good mime.
Entertaining themselves and more importantly each other

First KissRose lips, perched slightlyFirst Kiss1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Eyes closed, awaiting for my move
Like chess, I move forward to my queen
Hesitant as ever, I push my lips to hers
Awkwardness washes over like rain
There are no sparks or fireworks
No swelling of my heart
Just two pairs of lips
That is, until we started to dance
A happy waltz between our mouths
Moving in sync with each other
A soft moan escapes from her mouth into mine
And I feel the warm sensation in my stomach
Dying to make its way everywhere else
The feeling of a first kiss

Will you get lost with me?
Inside this maze of ours.
Let's get lost together
In this maze or another

Created by the beauty
Of your beating heart
Right in the middle
Inside this maze of yours
Let's lose ourselves
of the world outside

And where the heartless shall rise
There's the home to all night's beacons;
These shall make you realize
The light at the end of the tunnel
Has ceased to exist so long ago.
Downcast hearts in hellish funnels,
Skies that fell on me, down low.
Images of dismal tombs
Filling up my dirty mind.
The dead devouring human wombs;
Answers that I cannot find.
Dirty, you say? The doom's on us
Nightmares disembowel me
Falling to death, falling to lust
Why are you too blind to see?
Horrors, crows, zombies, alike
Empty bodies on death's spike
Howls of darkness they will make
My creations, for G
Dead PassionI am the oneDead Passion1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I hate everything when it comes to this
It rains with blood and hatred.
Crimson thoughts from the same head
Warning you all: run away
Angel on a death bed
I hate you
More than ever.
Sell your soul to the devil
And ally with me.
I will break rules and bones
And eat the night!
I hate you all.
Fear me when you hear me!
Flee me when you see me!
I am dread incarnate!
My passion for lust it is.
My passion for the dead it is
But I love life as it is
I want redemption for hope there is
I long for it.
But I'm still not turned to light to full
Pull the plug, end the pain.

I try not to kiss you
While I feel my spine seeping
And the puncture wounds
I comb my hair
To the right side of my face
So when I wake
It shields my eyes
Against the sunlight.
The colour of my wings
A tone I would not associate
Though I'm assured
It agrees with me
And so I accept it.
The nails come through
And like a fool
I kiss you.

Fallen Into Darkness
I'm a dark void, my shadow casts its own shadow
And I'm too much of a coward to even try and turn back
I'm so bleak, because I've managed to create a new breed of sorrow
And I'm such a fool to even attempt to move out and into the blinding black
My mere gaze can darken the brightest tomorrow
That must be why I am destined to remain here forever
My life is unaware that death is what I yearn to give into
That's another reason to sever every bond for the better
I vowed to myself that I wouldn't take you down with me
Your kind strength and light is what I can no longer borrow
I am nothing but a doubled-edged sword,

Not just to me, but to anyone
Who has ever said "I will be free."
They say "You are powerless."
When we say "We will change the world."

Buckle down and make money
Belt up and be us
They say, "Give up"
They say "We are rich, you are poor
Give in already"
They say "Look up.
Don't you wish you were us?
Don't you know you never will be?"
And we look past them,
To the Universe, and think
That is mine
They say "You are tiny, in a big world
And we are large."

But I have spent the
past ten minutes
kissing a silvered mirror
and leaning down
to dribble sweet nothings
into the bathroom sink;
my hands gripped the head
of the faucet, hot water
dripping in streams down my arms
so my shirt clings longingly
to my chest.
The handle twitches
and shakes, but I am locked
for the moment.
Now, I have fixed my hair
and left quietly,
so someone else will have to
wash my spit off the glass
and perhaps the walls.

The boy standing in the doorway wrung his hands in embarrassment, 'I want a story...'
Exhaling deeply, she studied him. Her gaze ran over his soft hair and the slight iridescence of his skin. She noted the odd way that the boy appeared to shimmer like a haze of heat. His eyes were deep and brown, and his lips played the tune of a nervous smile.
'I cannot give you a story,' She said brusquely, 'I am all out of stories! Look at me! I am hollow, I am gone, I am nothing! You want a story?' The Author paused whilst he nodded, 'Then go out and live! Breath

Breathe out and think of pain
Listen to the feeling in your heart
Not the voices in your brain
Hark the wind blowing through the trees
Ignore the dirge of modern life
Use your ears to hear the birds
and with them let your worries take flight
Glide upon the pockets of wind
Wherever the breeze shall take you
Make the journey beautiful
Rather than the place you wish to get to
Breathe in and think of the future
Breathe out and forget the past
I know the pain seems never ending
But such dismal days will not last
Hear my whispered words softly
Stirring emotions in your heart

Our meeting was brief, and simple.
Caring, and kind.
We left with helpless hearts.
Neither regretting, nor forgetting.
Our meeting place, once helped me smile.
Overcoming each day.
I still wish for the past,
with crying into my hands, at last.
Letting lose the tears,
I know I shouldn't fear.
You tell me "You'll move on".
But the glass still digs into my skin, and prickles each time I see you.
Wandering like I'm not here.
I touch my lips, and hope for yours to return.
The tears keep streaming, never forgetting.
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.
Tranquil SuicideTranquil Suicide1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Singing sweet, soft melodies
Muffled by the currents in my head
The will to find the song is drowned
So words come out in screams
The pressure of the water grows
As I fall faster, deeper
So in this flooded, lonely room
No one ever hears
No tears to sting my eyes
Only water crashing broken mirrors
So my eyes begin to close
And I let the darkness blind me
Now the liquid fills my lungs
Collapsing bones and bruising heart
No more life to pump the blood
I truly miss my breathing
The furnishings all drenched and old
No one has lived here for a while
Doors sealed shut and windows barred
Just letting in a pale blue light

Kiss me lovely.
Treat me right.
Slit my throat.

I rely on you as my safety
Net in hopes that maybe
When I'm lost in the snow
And don't know where to go
You'll listen as I speak
Quietly I grow weak
I want no advice
I've listened to you twice
A calm heart in the clouds
What happened to you now?
I don't want you to say
"Hey, you can go this way."
I just need you to listen
As my eyes slowly glisten
From tears like a sheep
That I am when I weep
Or maybe like a lamb
I can be gentle when I am
Listening to you
And all that you've been through
Even wolves can break
Sometimes I can't shake
The loneliness I feel
This is all too real
I am human after all
