Three WordsThree words people dream of each night before sleep,
Three words parents teach of with birds and with bees,
Three words grant a smile and set things to ease,
Three words people wish for to bring sweet relief.
Three words that were given and taken away,
Rip out a heart, leave a soul disarrayed,
A smile is broken, the sky fades to grey,
Three words became false and a heart fell astray.
Pick up the pieces, its never the same,
Three words once they're stolen are forever changed,
A burden so heavy it borders deranged,
Weighs down shoulders and hearts to leave a soul drained.
So when saying three words, please make sure they're true,
For once taken away, they cannot be renewed.
LadyI want to be the one you think of each night before you sleep,Lady3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The first thing that you wake to and wonder if you dream,
I want to watch you dreaming and listen to you breathe,
Look into your eyes and see the gleam that lies beneath.
I want to be a story, a lovely fairy tale,
The things that people sing of as light plays upon your hair,
I want to give you tshirts that it melts your heart to wear,
And bring your face a smile that makes me stop to stare.
So would you take a chance, an awful, scary risk,
Grant me your permission to gift you with a kiss,
I swear upon my knighthood that if you grant this wish,
I'll spend my life in an attempt to make sure yours is bliss.
ClimaxFive humble years he chased the beauty,Climax5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
He'd fallen for upon first sight,
She dodged his love with steady ardor,
Inciting countless painful fights.
Finally she told him,
That she'd realized her love,
And the white knight let her hold him,
His lovely brown-eyed Dove.
But she lied to him through perfect teeth,
And she broke his sorry soul,
The brown-eyed gaze so full of "love",
Was really black as coal.
She used him and abused him,
For the sake of self-esteem,
And she left him picking up the rust,
Of what he had once been.

Her favorite dress tied with a bow
Today was Daddy's Day at school
And she couldn't wait to go.
But her mommy tried to tell her,
That she probably should stay home.
Why the kids might not understand,
If she went to school alone.
But she was not afraid;
She knew just what to say.
What to tell her classmates
Of why he wasn't there today.
But still her mother worried,
For her to face this day alone.
And that was why once again,
She tried to keep her daughter home.
But the little girl went to school,
Eager to tell them all.
About a dad she never sees,
A dad who never calls.
There were daddies along the wall in back,
For everyone to meet
Children squirming impatently,
Anxious in their seats.
One by one the teacher called,
Each student from the class.
To introduce their daddy,
As seconds slowly passed.
At last the teacher called her name,
Every child turned to stare.
Each of them was searching,
For a man who wasn't there.
"Where's her daddy at?"
She heard a boy

You cut me deep into the bone
You used me as your play toy
Your just like a little boy
You said you weren't like the rest
You said that i was the best
You said a lot of things
And this is what it brings
Pain in my heart
I knew this would happen from the start
You lied to me
And now we can never be
Because of you
and what you do
You cracked my heart in two
When i gave it to you
You say you love me
But that's hard to believe
If you loved me
You wouldn't have done this to me
You broke every promise you made
I wish you would have stayed
Then i wouldn't feel like this
Then it wouldn't be you i miss
I wish things were like they were before
But im not yours anymore
Yet you get mad
When he comforts me when im sad
When he says i have his heart
That i did from the start
You get mad
When he says im beautiful
When he says he wants me
You get mad
because someone else wants me
When you don't
I still love you
But you don't control what i do
neither do i
All i want to do is
Living White TragedySlender fingers play lightly with the rim of the cup. Circling the cup, touching the rim, and with care, making a soft ringing. The noise was enough to fill the silent room The delicate noise wasn't loud, not by anyone's standards. The sound was simply ringing. Echoing off of the walls and filling the room. Not that that was necessarily a bad thing Quite the contrary, sense it had a soothing effect on the girl whom had started staring deeply into the golden liquid sitting within her cup. It was the sound was soothing her. Relaxing her, despite everything...

Sending shivers down my spine,
Your arms around my waist,
Let me know you're forever mine.
Pick me a leaf, my love,
Trace the veins with your fingers,
Then leave it to the wind
To keep it safe until it withers.
Tell me your dreams, my love,
And the meanings that they hold.
What corners of your mind
Do I have yet to explore?
Sing me a song, my love,
Close your eyes in that way of yours.
I'll drink the sound of your voice,
And I'll always ask for more.
Now take my hand, my love,
Pull me down and hold me close..
Your love has become my drug
Now let me have my overdose.
CareShe sat in her room all aloneCare4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With a heart as hard as stone
She started screaming but no one came
To all of them she was just their shame
No one ever listened to a word she said
Not even when she told them by morning she'd be dead
To all of them it was just a game
She was the girl they gave all the blame
All the blame for things gone wrong
It's been this way for to long
Now that girl just wants to be free
She just wants everyone to see
That she wasn't as bad as they made her seem
Now she sits here with a broken heart
As the cutting begins to start
Blood drips down from her arms and face
Shes finally getting free of this place
She smiles to herself and speaks out loud
As if she were standing in front of a crowd
"This is what you get for being mean to me
Now you can finally see all the pain you brought me
Maybe now as the blood colors my hair
Just maybe you might start to care."

So first of all know I would stand by you when push comes to shove
I want you to know that there is no limit to the things I want to say
You need to know that I would make you fall for me every single day
There is the fact that you alone make me feel like I am a better man
You make me feel like I can be successful in this world without a plan
When I look at your smile I know that the pain of life is really worth it
To you for eternity, my heart and my very soul I have chosen to commit
When I feel your presence the horrors of my mind I can no longer fear
It is because of you my love that this world I see in a way that is more clear
Some say we fall in love only once, I hear your voice and I fall all over again
My love for you is something that is truly impossible for any to restrain
You bring a smile to my face and warm my heart when my mood is crappy
When I am with you absolutely nothing is forced, I am just blissfully
Love is PainI loved youLove is Pain4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
But you kept on running away
You were everything to me the sun, the night and the day
I've lost you, you changed
Now finding you, is like finding a nail in stack of hay
Once I loved you
But you sold the dreams for bunch of lies
Now I'm watching your purity slowly cries
You're gone and left nothing but agony mixed with sorrow
Leaving me misguided in my life like broken arrow
Now you're gone
Nothing but a lost cause
And your selfish beauty is wilting like a withered rose
Disfigured full of flaws
Like a beast with fangs and claws
Wandering like a freak, defying the humanity laws

allow me to trace the labyrinth
of your veins with my fingertips
and imagine your blood
is truly liquid
when we kiss, let me be
the first to pull away-
let me imagine that
if you had the time
you'd want to spend
the rest of your life
with your lips
if i cry, do not hold me-
let me get through my tears
on my own, so i can pretend
i do not need you to wipe them
away for me to survive;
i promise you i will always
come for you after i'm done,
like a child aching to be
should i grow up too fast
remind me of my dreams-
read me stories about Peter Pan,
and let me pretend that
we are the lost children.
let me soak my feet in
imagination, and come with me
to Never Never Land.
and when i tell you i hate you,
which with my temper, i know i
shall one day-
whisper to me gently,
"no you don't, love. you hate
spiders and ants
and sleeping on the left
side of the bed,
but you do not hate me."
because i could not hate you,
not for a year, or
The Black RoseBeneath the sky of that warm summer nightThe Black Rose4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
There lay a bed of roses growing in the moonlight
Black were their petals, black were their stems
Yet in the moonlight they sparkled, like the most beautiful of gems
And gems they were, for in anyone's presence they would glow
And heal any pain of the heart, mind, or soul
Untouched by time, unmoved by the wind
Outside of our world, but still within
And among these roses, one stood out
And when it blossomed, the sweetest scent could be smelled throughout
A scent that held the meaning life
And could end all suffering, war, and all forms of strife
Through lightning and thunder, rain and snow
This black rose lived and continued to grow
And it stood upon a hill, under the full moon
And all reveled in its beauty every time it bloomed
Its thorns were made of diamond, beautiful to the eye
They shone like a star, like no other in the sky
Beneath the night sky, a black rose stands in full bloom
To live and never die by the light of the moon
ShakilyDear XXXXX,Shakily4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
I've distracted myself from love with love; I've dug myself out of hole by digging into another. Now I hurt more. I feel apathetic nowadays, so out of things and annoyingly passive. I don't listen because my focus doesn't exist in this state, it only returns in desperate anger. I cannot see where I stand, my feet are a blur.
I cannot tell whether or not people actually are my allies, or if they are just being decisive. It's a bit scary, what people could be saying about me. But then there are the few (very few) who legitimately are supportive, and are incredibly good people.
Parents who are overprotective overstep their bounds simply because of love and are yelled at and saddened by their children. The children, who, out of anger from being caught in wrong doings, reverse the words and twist the story to fit their needs, to make the parents look like idiots and incompetent jerks rather than those i
The Lies She ToldOnce I loved a Disney Princess,The Lies She Told4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With all my heart and chivalry,
She broke my soul and left me bleeding,
To die upon the city streets.
She gave her faithless love to many,
As I stood by and ate the lies,
For every breakfast, lunch and dinner,
'Til the truth was placed before my eyes.
The scars she left reside upon me,
They do not fade with passing time,
My dreams of love are unrequited,
A Poet who has lost his rhymes.
She took it all and left me bleeding,
My storybooks and fairy tales,
My knighthood, rhymes and my ideals,
She broke them all and proved them frail.
So here I'm sitting ages later,
With wounds that still refuse to heal,
Once I loved a Disney Princess,
Her heartfelt words were never real.

With memories and thought processes that you could never see,
My wishes, were they fishes, would overfill the sea,
Ungranted, all, they fade in vain and haunt me in my dreams.
The scars remain unseen, unfelt, unnoticed to this day,
Residing deep within my heart, so firmly locked away,
I see your eyes upon my eyelids in the most vivid display,
And feel a piece of sanity continue to decay.
I know its hard to understand these things that do not show,
Contrary to popular belief true pain is not blood flow.

the glass facade has splintered, leaving
spiders webs distorting her appearance,

Perhaps it's for the best; their feelings

of a freezing ground that sapped their will to fly.

One who can't see the light, any goodness at all
I become the old me who was too scared to fall
I'm a man in the station with my eyes gray and cold
Clenching hands in thin air looking for your hand to hold
Another lonely soul watching minutes tick by
Standing in silence with no one by my side
Once upon a time, when we hadn't met
I was somebody else, someone that I can't forget
I had been through a lot and it had made me that way
But you saved me from that anger, day after day
I was younger back then but I lost my youth
To the things that I suddenly decided to do
So young to be unhappy wishing time on
My eyes they turned dark and they no longer shone
Know that I lost a friend and I fell from the tracks
And I did terrible things that I can never take back
I made mistakes each day and I couldn't be stopped
I was working my way between a hard place and a rock
I was the boy in the toilet at the back of the

And kiss my lips tenderly.
Let me cling to your shirt
As you sing to me softly.
Hold me while I cry,
