Death To The JediDeath To The Jedi2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The order is given.
Death to the Jedi.
Death to the good.
Death to the light side of the force.
And now the force is singing,
With the cries of crying children,
Younglings unable to control their thoughts.
And pain falls as the silence grows.
The force is now silent.
Not a whisper or murmur.
Not a cry or a yell.
No sign it's been used.
Just a silence of a dead race.

You're a bad example of everything British.
Someone American upsets the boss,
But it's you who gets the loss.
Carry on soldier.
I'm not against you got it?
I play by all the same rules,
But that goes with passport.
But you've really made me angry.
Because you died
You stand with pride.
Then you wish you never died.
Like all Brits you go to heaven,
Because Brits don't have to try.
Others wonder why,
But it's a simple fact
No matter if you're choked
Fried or eaten alive.
Dead in space with no air supply.
You're not going to hell alright?
So I'll throw you off a hill,
Give you poisoned toast with dill,
No regrets because I won't miss you when you're dead.
You might threaten to come back,
But that's not British that's a fact.
Because you'll be replaced just like that.
On the Death Star it's a hazard.
There are thousands just like you.
Disposable Brits ready like you.
And then you fail your orders
Sith Lord Vader kills you off,
Force chokes you as you're so wrong.
The life of a grain of sandShores crumble before the stormThe life of a grain of sand2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The grains of sand shipped away
Another beach they'll form
On this shore they won't stay
Far away they will gather
Maybe together, maybe alone
On which shore doesn't matter
Where away they will be blown
The wind takes the grains
Holds them tight, caries far
Blows them upon new planes
Their resting places they are
Buried by kindred sand
A river cuts through
Where now trees stand
The grain moves to the blue
Again they travel in the sea
Caught up in roaring waves
To where they always flee
Before they sink to graves
All together in one pack
Formed into a sandstone
Very tightly they all stack
Into a deep to us unknown
Deep, deep, pressure and hot
The grains now something new
Their old form they forgot
Into a hard stone they grew
Now to the surface they come
Up they go, mountains form
Again they've felt the sun
Slowly they cool to warm
They cool, they warm, they cool
Slowly they come apart
It's the elements that rule
The time for a new start
The river flows, i

LifelineI hate how I look;Lifeline1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The bags beneath my eyes.
I hate who I am;
The endless torrent of lies.
Sometimes I do things I know I shouldn't
And I don't do things I know I should,
Only that I could and would,
Because that's how people work.
Everyone has motives
And nobody is selfless
In this world that doesn't want
Everyone's gonna die
And I'm not gonna lie;
Sometimes that thought is the only thing
That gets me through the day.
I miss my old razor blade;
Scissors don't go deep enough
This red isn't my favorite shade;
I like it purer,
Then I could be surer
That I'm a threat to myself.
I'm trying to cut down,
As apposed to cutting everything else,
But I doubt I'll ever stop
Because every slash,
Every bloody drop,
The whole crimson rash,
I'm still alive
And I am
StarsWritten under the starsStars1 year ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
I wrote my vows to you
That no matter if we ventured far
We would do what we'd have to do
I kissed you goodbye
Tears staining my lips
And I kept wondering why
I would have to leave this
Thousands of miles away from you
I sat there all alone
Not knowing what to do
Felt like I was lost, left to fight on my own
But then I looked up at the stars
Saw them looking back at me
And although the distance between us was far
I knew under the stars was where you'd be
You asked what I would miss when I went away
I told you the stars and you
And you told me that I was your day
And that you were my moon
And if I had the choice
To choose between having you and the stars
I would use every breath, until I had no voice
To be where you are

I only bring out your deep fear.
Constantly near panic attack.
Focusing on what you lack.
So afraid that I'll go away.
Why do you want me to stay?
You deserve more than me.
Really, what do you see?
Trying to be better for you.
I don't know what I can do.
I'll try whatever I can.
I'm just sorry for who I am.
Sincerest HopeSincerest Hope1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I'm not looking for sobs, I'm not looking for tears
I'm praying that you'd want to transform the rest of your years
That you'd make that decision that would deliver you from all of your fears
And that all the confusion in your mind would be finally cleared
It's been so long, but I'm still here
Praying and believing that you'll let God near
That one day I'd wake up to the sound of music in my ear
Hearing your voice worship, singing, how Jesus changed your life after so many years
I'd often ask my self Why is this so important?
Why not give up the hope and just ignore it?
Why feel discouraged when I hear you're still exploring?
Frustrated when I see your so close to exploding
I realized it's not because I'm still tied down to you
Not because I can't forget the time I spent with you
It's not because my heart still belongs to you
It's simply because I may have never found Him myself, if it weren't for you
You're beautiful, you're gorgeous, yes that's all true
But what does it matter, when
The Widow in BlackThe widow walks, the widow grieves,The Widow in Black1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Through unkempt trees, and rotting leaves,
A heart residing in a nest of thieves,
Stolen from her before she could die.
A single tear falls from behind her eye,
But none did ever see her cry.
For the widow was too old, too proud,
And she would not fall from upon her cloud.
Her husband to the sea did go,
And there was lost to the to-and-fro.
Of the waves how little he did know.
The widow when she learnt she wept,
And her wedding ring forever kept,
And dreamt of him whenever she slept.
And the widow she too grew old,
And waited for him till she turned cold.

Be embarrassed and feel slightly rejected, eat a whole pizza!
But don’t break again.
Don’t push friends away.
Take a night to yourself, go for a walk
but don’t push them away again.
Go home for a night or two, sit in a coffee shop reading
but don’t run again
Curl up with your diary, create a sanctuary
but don’t hide your feelings again.
Have a shower with tears, dive into something unknown
but don’t drown again.

A Challenge to ThanatosYou hear the sneers beneath your laughter,A Challenge to Thanatos1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like quivering arrows shot in the air.
Your own voice taunts and mocks you,
The living mirror of a lie’s contraire.
Making up excuses just to remain calm,
Soon out of things to make you feel numb.
Go on and hide the scars in the sun,
Your acting skills are second to none.
Every day’s fear swallows you up whole,
Giving birth to yet more doubt in your soul.
As each time is spent with a life on the edge,
You see yourself simply waiting for death.
Constantly at present with tales of the past,
You’re idly staring while others prance.
Where is that heart you wear on your sleeve?
Emotion has left you and oh, does it grieve.
Torn apart by the unknown you so fear,
Where the knight is kept in a little girl’s dream.
Dreading for the day you finally get to breathe,
For now you’re still stuck gasping in your coffin.
Remember though in your deepest of depths,
Exists a single string gliding from the web.

One false word and you're swallowed whole.
Hungry for blood,
no one is safe.
Walking through the streets,
in the shadows of concrete giants,
eyes averted to others.
Don't meet their eyes,
lest you tempt their wrath.
Poisoned earth beneath my feet,
fumes rise from the urban Hell.
A dying planet,
an ignorant civilisation.

Universe revolving round ourselves.
Can anybody tell me how things can work like this?
her sorrow as deep as the trenches,
deep within the abyssal oceans.
Is this what it means to be Human?
To hate others so deeply,
when we are the same?
To burn our home in the void?
And only love what makes us powerful,
yet corrupts us,
generation by generation?
Where will it end?
When will mankind destroy itself?

They look down on two lovers tonight.
The moon casts her glow,
As she fixes her gaze far below.
The world could pass them by,
Forever in each others' arms they'll lie.
The wind blows gently around them,
Lovingly kissing their skin.
Tonight he'll show her things she never knew,
Tonight their love will grow into something new.
Like a flower she will bloom,
Her passion like a monsoon.
He'll gently show her the way,
In his arms she'll lay.
He treats her as gently as snow,
And her trust begins to grow.
Her memories of that night,
Burn, oh, so very bright.
They keep her alive,
When she only wants to give up and die.
There are many nights when she lies awake,
Feeling that old familiar ache.
Half of her is gone,
But her love for him goes on.
One day she knows,
He'll bring her a rose.
And she'll never let go,
For he is her home.

Burning brighter still than moon or sun;
But far, so far we cannot call them ours,
Waiting out of reach and never won.
This twilight drives an arrow through my soul,
Clinging to the dust at end of day.
Never to regain what bounty stole,
Driving all we ever were away.
You will always be my summer weather,
Warm and pure in ways I'll never know.
Gently in the blades of grass and heather,
'Twas you who held my hand and wouldn't go.
How far we've come and oh, how far apart--
So bright must burn the stars that light our hearts.
