Right NowRight now,
I'm supposed to be busy,
Since I have time lines
With deadlines to meet,
But I really want to be with you,
Because you're more important to me.
In not very long
Change will whisk you away,
But that's just the way life goes.
We are only promised
What we already have,
So let's make good
On the time we have left.
My GeniusI feel warm insideMy Genius3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When I talk to you;
But I am happy
When we're quiet too.
I am content to sit
With you next to me,
Or with my back
Pressed against yours,
Even though we may be
Fixated on projects
Just being with you
Makes me feel complete.
You are the only one
That I don't mind
Being second to
In left-brained things,
I love to compete,
Because you are
Laughter and TearsThese people never judge you,Laughter and Tears3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But they tell you when you're wrong.
They're the ones who hold your head up,
And remind you that you're strong.
They're the cause of half your laughter,
But they hold you through your tears.
They're the ones who always love you,
And who know your deepest fears.
Friends are the only people who
Always let you act like you.

To convince me,
If you tried.
I want to be persuaded
When you look
Into my eyes.
Please continue talking
Because your words
Show me your view.
Maybe I'll believe them
When I feel
I've earned their truth.

The silence is so loud
Nobody listens, nobody cares

The Puppet MasterI try to never pull too hard-The Puppet Master3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Only direct or guide,
So I'll give you my advice
At the exactly perfect time.
My aim is always to be subtle,
Because you have to look good too.
I've assessed the situation,
And I know just what to do.
I'm not trying to be controlling,
It's just that I know how to win.
In the end, we'll all get our desire.
Don't resist me; just give in.
Don't Leave MeI thought I saw your face today,Don't Leave Me3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Saw your smile,
Heard your laugh,
I could write a paragraph,
On what I thought I saw today.
I thought I felt you hug me close,
Ruffle my hair,
Rub my back,
But then I lost track,
At the thought of you hugging me close.
I thought I heard you singing our songs,
Full of life,
Making me fill with strife,
At the thought of you singing our songs.
I thought I came when you called,
Where are you?
You're not here,
My heart flooding with fear,
At the thought of not coming because you never called.
I thought I heard you scream last night,
Breathe your last,
Moan in pain,
Going through it all again,
When I heard you scream last night.
I thought I saw your face today,
Pale and pained,
No life there,
Getting lost in your blind stare,
When I thought I saw your face today.
His Butler, Knowing*Please read description first. Thanks!*His Butler, Knowing3 years ago in Romance More Like This
It's unusually quiet this late winter morning at the Phantomhive Mansion. Earl Ciel Phantomhive sits behind his oak desk in the study, doing the daily paperwork.
Sign, trash, sign, sign, sign, trash, trash, sign. How time consuming. Like every day the dutiful butler, Sebastian Michaelis, strides into the study. A confident smile stretches across his face as he serves his master breakfast. Homemade scones with the Earl's most favored -tea.
With all the breakfast laid out for his master, Sebastian decides it's best to leave, seeing how much work his young master has yet to accomplish.
As the butler's footsteps fade down the hallway Ciel sighs, suddenly not hungry anymore. "He just doesn't get it does he?" the young Earl mutters, rising up and connecting his foot strongly with his oak desk. Feeling a sharp pain, along with stupidity, Ciel slumps back into his large business chair.
Why does Sebastian have to be so perfect? With his almond eyes that
Heart ThiefThere is a tightnessHeart Thief3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In my chest.
It feels like your hands are
Closing around my heart,
Because it feels
So hard to breathe!
I guess that's why
My heart is beating faster:
I am becoming oxygen-deprived.
It just isn't natural
To be choking on the air.
Hurry up, heart thief,
Go ahead and take your trophy.
But then again,
It isn't really stealing,
Since it was always yours
To start with.
How long does it take
To plan this kind of heist?
The One No One WantsI'm the last toy on the shelfThe One No One Wants3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The one no one wants
I don't know what's wrong with myself
Why am I the one no one wants
I may not be the best
But I'm the worst- that no one wants?
Sure I'am not the best dressed
But why am I the one no one wants
I thought someone would have a heart
I guess not- I'm something no one wants
Yes, I'am no work of art
But I'm not the worthless one no one wants!
I guess I will just sit here for the remaining time
Because I'm the one no one wants
Hidden AwayMy hidden heart wants to be foundHidden Away3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Very few notice the disguise
Beneath the surface I hide my whole world
It can't be seen through wandering eyes
If people don't take time to show interest
Then they will never get inside
Deep within me lies my very best
But very few know of this side
Perhaps I just don't show enough
Because my heart offers so much
Maybe this is why my surface is so rough
People have used me as a crutch
Sometimes I'm too sensitive for my own good
I can't shut down this part of me
When I venture out I feel misunderstood
This hurts because I just want to be free
In the end I just want to be adored
Why must my lion's heart be hidden?
If I'm drawn out I might be restored
This world of mine shouldn't be forbidden
SubtletiesI've been leaving hints and clues,Subtleties2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So you'd know how I feel for you,
But I guess that subtlety is not your game.
I guess I can't complain though,
Since reading you is difficult.
One moment you act like you're in love,
And the next, you push me away.
I want you to know,
But do you feel the same?
If I knew that answer,
It would change everything.
Tangled Up in YouI am tangled up in you,Tangled Up in You3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Like sea-weed around my ankles.
It is hard to find freedom
Without someone getting hurt.
I am tangled up in you
Like knots in a ball of yarn.
It becomes a useless mess
That only the feline sort enjoys.
I am tangled up in you
Like I thought I'd never be.
It never occured to me
That someone could trap me again.
PoiseYou said we'd be together then,Poise3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But obligations drew you away.
I didn't complain,
Because I understood,
And so I kept my poise.
I know you hadn't meant to,
And I know it's not your fault.
Its just, this leaves me all alone
When another could have stayed,
But I will keep my poise.
If you didn't mean so much to me,
I would have let you go,
But I will roll
With all your punches,
While still keeping my poise.
Angel of FireShe's got a smile I know so well,Angel of Fire3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I love her so much,
I'd ride down to the bowels of hell,
To tell her as such,
I'm of no angelic birth.
She's got hair of emerald gold,
I love her so much,
I'd sent her letters and be ever so bold,
To write to her as such,
I'm not an man of desire.
She's got a face so sweet and pure,
I love her so much,
I'd send for her if ever I needed a cure,
To listen to her as such,
She's an angel wrapped in fire.

I just hate myself.
I hate the life that I lead.
I hate the things that I've done.
I keep trying to figure out.
Where it is exactly that I went wrong.
No matter how hard I try to evade
And blame others for my actions.
At some point I am forced to accept.
That the problem resides within me
And the answer remains absent.
I am the common dominator.
I am the back stabbing selfish traitor.
It's nothing to do with how I was raised
Or the credentials and intentions of my creators.
We choose our own paths.
We make our own decisions.
It is only us that determine what kind of life we lead.
There may be externa
Like the SunThe day I met you changed my life for good,Like the Sun3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And since then, nothing's ever been the same.
My world fell into place. I knew it would,
But not that you would be the one to blame.
It's true that other people can allure,
But they don't know what true love even means,
Since all too often, we are immature,
And focus on the temporal it seems.
I cannot live my life indifferent now,
Because it's cold and worthless without you.
I never thought that you would show me how
To find, through all this darkness, what is true.
I never dreamed that you would be the one.
Now, I revolve around you like the sun.
IrreplaceableYour words so often reassure,Irreplaceable3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And make me feel important
On the days when I feel
Quite the opposite.
They make me laugh
So hard I cry,
And give me countless reasons why
Giving up is unacceptable.
Please, don't ever grow out of
Being so happy and perfect.
You should know,
In case you ever doubt that's so.
The monster in the mirrorI look in the mirror and all I seeThe monster in the mirror3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is that freaky little monster staring back at me
She does so much damage but means no harm
Her parents she does not want to alarm
So she keeps her feelings bottled up inside
Paints on a smile and acts like everything is fine
Puts on long sleeves and pretends the scars aren't there
It's not like anyone would even care
She waits until nighttime to sit and cry
Thinks about how much she wants to die
When everyone's asleep, she lies awake
Thinking of how many pills she'd have to take
Or how deep the wound would have to be
So people would finally hear her plea
Her need to see blood pour from her wrist
The pain that she had missed
It feels so good but it is so awful
The damage done to me has been so brutal
She looks at herself and makes a face of disgust
Wonders if there's anyone else she can trust
She sheds her tears every day
Wondering when the world won't look so gray
She doesn't hurt like she hurt before
With all the pain she's had to endure
I think she'

Monotony seeps through my skin,

That you hold me together.
When my listless limbs collapse,

Before the gravity
Of my circumstance
Has the chance
To drag me down again.
I can't help but trust you,
So I'm going to
Fall into your arms.

That's all I see
In my head.
That's all I have written
Here on this paper.
Are what I
Seem to be missing.
Is what they tell me
I need to have.
Is my buzzword
At the start of every day.
That's what I live in,
In the pit of my stomach.
Those replace my
Formerly red, beating heart.
That's the only thing
I can pull from my mind.
That's what they try to teach me,
What I never seem to learn.
Is how I signed the letter
I wrote to them yesterday.
Tears of InkCrying out loudTears of Ink3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Doesn't feel right.
Neither does shouting
Or putting up a fight.
Tears aren't endless-
My throat ran dry.
People stopped caring.
The world was a lie
I found some paper,
An old, used pen;
Turned my inside out;
Let my emotions rule again.
Paper after paper
Filled with words in ink...
No need to worry.
No need to think.
Let it all go
The scars run deep.
It's bleeding out.
This is what i keep:
A book with letters
Written in tears,
My heart on paper,
My deepest fears.
ClownYou became a puppetClown2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Nothing more than just a clown
Jumping from here to there
Smiling until your tears make you drown
And you get flashback of the past
That cold November night
When the winds shattered your hopes
It was forbidden to dream of light
You can't help it
You bleed your tears away
The owner of your soul is wanted
Your ship is so far from this bay
You've got nine lives
But you're left with one
Who will take it?
Its killer is unknown
You're a puppet
Nothing more than just a clown
When you cry,
You never leave a sound

but there's so many lyrics that its too long
So I'll write a compilation of music instead
and make sure to say all thats been in my head
Track one will be how we came to be
At first so wild, young, and free
track two will be to romance you
with just enough rhythym to dance to.
Track three will be as sensual as a lustful night
But still like a love ballad done just right
Track four, a melody for lovers who follow their heart
and will try to stay strong even while they're apart
for now track five will remain unwritten
but one things for sure is that I'm smitten
Even if the rest of the lyrics become sad
I'll still remember the songs we had
The harmony we have i could never regret
and the sexy tango we dance to i could never forget
So i'll continue singing you every note in my soul
with the hopes you'll keep making my songs whole
for your heart is the beat i need to hear
and your love is the melody that i hold dear.
