A Kill for KindnessIt doesn't matter how hard I tryA Kill for Kindness3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I put forth many acts of kindness
Yet it always seems to be a mess
So, what now, I apparently have to change
I fight that thought with each chance I get,
A heart wrapped in a barbed wire, soaked in a pain,
Yet each drop is pure with good intentions,
This means I am genuinely trying to be kind,
But you just don't notice that, do you?
I mean no harm, pain, torture, and any deeds you accuse,
Don't frame me, don't assume anything,
Because you are completely wrong, utterly wrong,
I thought I was right to try, you don't care, do you?
Should everything that is pure of me, wither away,
Obviously, you are oblivious, you don't notice,
Disect the heart, past the scars and through the middle,
There wasn't evil and malevolence, only kindness,
But you don't really believe it even when you see it,
Point your bullet at the bleeding target,
Even though the justice you insist is real, is fake,
I tried to be a decent being of this place,
I tried shouting the truth-Somethi
Don't Ask For MeScraped skin on your knees I see,Don't Ask For Me2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Bearing compliments and a single flower with a droop in its neck,
Smothering the stem between your fingers, you clasp your hands
You beg and plead for a favor from me
You're mouthing these words into nearly full-blown paragraphs,
And you fill your mouth with saliva, almost drooling
As if they were waves crashing against an insubstantial barrier,
Your lips open and close with every utter,
And you describe the beauty of me,
And you soak your words with a depression that is almost touching,
And yet your eyes don't have the same feeling
You say that you want to be my knight,
And you say that your heart still carries a love for me,
And you try to remind me of all the other times,
The times of laughter and all,
And just to remember...
You try to say that you can make changes,
All the changes for the better and for my sake,
Yet what is the hint you can't take?
The changes I want are hurtful,
And I need no changes, I want to change no
Why So Cold?Sweetie, why are you so cold?Why So Cold?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Why is your blood iced beneath that shell of skin?
Honey, what happened to your heart?
Has it grown dim or is it gone?
Sweetie, why won't you hug me?
Show me that you love me,
And always hug me and let me know you will never want to leave my embrace
But why do you push me away, sweetie?
Do you not love me?
Am I your problem?
You are so bitter
Why do you loathe me so?
You don't say that you do,
But how am I to think otherwise-
Why do you feel that you want to show every ounce of love?
But you don't feel right at times when you recieve it,
You push it away
You reject it not meaning to
But it felt right, in a way, to push it afar
When you knew it was wrong to do so,
Sweetie, you want the love and affection,
And you desire it,
And you get tired of being called so emotionless and cold,
And you want to feel warm and feel that beating inside
But Sweetie, you act so harsh and mean
Inside you are loving and caring
Contradicting yourself never helps,
