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.
Petal GamesHe loves me, he loves me not,Petal Games3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She sighs into the wind,
As the petals fall right to the ground,
And her thoughts return to him.
She sits there and she wonders,
If she'll ever be at peace,
As the torn up flowers all around,
Catch in her dress's crease.
She picks another flower,
And begins her chant again,
"He loves me, he loves me not,
I know not how it ends."
Then suddenly she glances up,
And sees his smiling face,
And she drops the petals to the ground,
As her heart begins to race.
"Why don't you just ask me?"
The boy requests of her,
"I assure you it's more accurate,
Than flowers ever were."
She stares at him so speechless,
With flowers all around,
And as he tells her that he loves her,
The last petal hits the ground.
LadyI want to be the one you think of each night before you sleep,Lady2 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,Climax4 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.
ChivalryI can give you all the things of which you've always dreamed,Chivalry2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Smiles, kisses, oh so bliss, and feelings never seen,
We could travel 'cross the world and gaze upon the moon,
Sleep beneath the starry sky and never wake too soon.
I would grant you fairy tales if you simply wished them true,
Wake you with a kiss and fit you with a shoe,
Ride a flying carpet and climb a head of hair,
Slay a deadly dragon and meet a stony stare.
I'm the Knight you sometimes read of in the silly story books,
With the honor and the loyalty but never quite the looks,
My shining armor rusted by the lonely, passing years,
My heart battered and broken from a million unshed tears.
Have you ever wished so woefully for happy ever after,
But ran away so terrified at first hint of disaster?
Are you still caught up so cautiously in once upon a time?
Look into my eyes and witness each of them align.

Within his tiny hands,
As he stares the dragon in the eye,
And takes a fighting stance.
His first love stands behind him,
A youth in a soiled dress,
And she takes great solace in the fact,
That her brave knight shall protect.
The tiny boy stands straight-backed,
And the dragon meets his eye,
As he holds his wooden toy in hand,
And prepares himself to die.
The dragon looks within the boy,
And sees the courage there,
And he takes to flight away in peace,
With respect for the knight's stare.
So they travel back home arm in arm,
On their suburban avenue,
And the girl in dirt stained grubby jeans,
Kisses her boy adieu.

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

I lay beneath the arches of times gone by,
Below the spires and the facade of old,
I realized that time was every man's gold.
Pulchra moriens te veniat.
Somewhere beyond in a field of Four o Clocks,
She arose like a spirit, shimmering and pale,
Her silhouette, lithe, petite and frail,
Gleaming brilliantly to dispel the witching hour,
Her flowing sable gown swept through the grass,
Putting everything in it's path to eternal rest,
Her long dark hair glided down her back,
And became one with the night.
Pulchra moriens te veniat.
The bells chimed once, and the bells chimed twice,
As I reminisced many a virtue and vice,
My languid heart, my only friend,
The only thing that stays till the very end.
Pulchra moriens te veniat.
She sauntered across the marshes, ever so softly,
Her treads so tender, bent not a blade of grass,
A formidable aura of boundless strength,
Lay around her like an unwavering shield,
For the beasts and creatures of the night,
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.

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

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.

You cracked my heart in two

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 says i have his heart

When he says he wants me
You get mad
because someone else wants me

Are they the children in the sand, constructing castles by day?
In the soft breath of the sea, are they the smiling faces that make the Sun so dim?
In the moonlight, are they the lovers fiercely embracing?
Low moans and soft caresses, are they the beads of sweat that drop from each pulsing body?
What are words upon a page?
Are they the girlish laughter that springs from a young lady's lips,
after she has been kissed?
In the wilderness, are they a small buck, still without his antlers?
Sitting on alters, fed Ambrosia, are they the gods of the Mountain Olympus?
What are words upon a page?

and let me pretend that
we are the lost children.
let me soak my feet in
