(Tell Me Sister) A Pawn Like the RestTell me sister, do you care for me?
Or am I another pawn like the rest?
The ones you use to get your way
Then toss then to the side when they fail your test
I remember the words you told me once
"You're my sister" so I shouldn't fear
Being your sister meant I wouldn't be a pawn
It's what kept me going through the years
But sister, in the past you said something hurtful
Out of anger you answered me you "don't care"
Then accused me of betrayal when I stood up to you
Even though the drama ended, the pain inside is still there
Was it your temper guiding your harsh actions?
How do I know you won't hurt me more?
Only being your sister has kept the lies at bay
But the fear of being your pawn is sinking into my core
Sister, there is something that I don't understand
You are now sisters with the one I call fiend
the one that is two-faced and once your enemy
Is there a hidden motive, what does this mean?
If she is a pawn then why call her "sister"?
Being your sister means we won't get used
How Do You Do It?How is it that you can make me laughHow Do You Do It?5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When there are tears running down my face?
How come you can bring out my smile
When heartbreak left me with disgrace?
How do you make me feel at ease
When I tell you my inner hidden truths?
How are you able to leave me fearless
When my worries show me false proofs?
How can you create a confidence in myself
When I suffer from my own self-doubt?
How is it you can give me my voice
When even myself am to afriad to shout?
How come you let me reveal my truer self
When there are very few I truely trust?
How do you stand me back on my feet
When life has left me down in the dust?
How are you able to make me feel loved?
When my last love threw me away?
How can you always make me someone special
When I have been lost through the day?

Rage eats away the heart,
Rage, can't think straight,
Rage taking over your sanity,
Rage, feel the violence,
Rage, you hate the world,
Rage making everyone your enemy,
Rage, you can't control it,
Rage painting your vision red,
Rage killing the happiness,
Rage, why won't it go away?
Rage is destroying my world,
Rage hurting everyone near me,
Rage only brings misery.
My SpiritGo ahead, hate me,My Spirit4 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Place me on a pedestal to rate me,
So you can knock me down to break me,
Remember, my spirit you’ll never take from me!
I’m strong as the salt that puts out the fire,
I’ll release myself from your tormenting briar,
No more bowing to the judgmental sire,
It’s time to follow the reign to inspire!
Go, stomp my name into the dirt,
Leave me bare, rip my shirt!
Bring out the whip to make it hurt,
No matter what, my spirit will not convert!
I’m free as the river flowing down,
The chains of perfection won’t keep me bound,
No more listening to your raging sound,
I won’t drown, the freedom key has been found!
Go, condemn me to oblivion,
Darken my world, leave me shaken,
Go ahead try to make me forsaken,
Keep in mind, my spirit is obsidian!
I’m fierce as the wolf on the prowl at night,
Don’t hunt me for my fangs will bite,
Feel my might that ends your dreadful blight!
The moon as my guide, courage is in my sight!
To Wait for A KnightIn the darkness, I wished to be savedTo Wait for A Knight5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A shining knight to come to my aid
In this maze, I met a false knight
Believing him, I let him lead me into the light
The dark had faded and so I found my prince
I was blinded by love's trance ever since
In the light, the shadow's again took ahold of me
This knight was never my prince to be
Under his helmet was unforgivable lies
To the false knight, I said good-bye
Stranded in the darkness once more
I waited for that true knight to open the door
Remembering words of lies the false knight told
Created unknown feelings that began to unfold
Anger and power began to rush through
These emotions, I changed into something new
In the darkness I will no longer wait
For a knight to come and set my fate
A knight's helmet is just another mask
To hide his lies and reveal his false task
This darkness that used to burn
Created a lesson I had to learn
To be saved you must get stronger
Now I will not wait to be saved any longer
Eyes of a BullySweet, timid, small and tenderEyes of a Bully4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A good girl with a loving heart
But why was she tormented so?
She was little, an easy catch
She was quiet, a weak target
She was sensitive, a fun game
Prey in the eyes of a bully
So what if she cries? they laugh
So what if she shivers? they smile
So what if she tells? they attack
Game in the eyes of a bully
Sad and scared, she's all alone
Who will protect her? no one sees
Who will save her? no one hears
Who will rescue her? no one cares
Only seen by the eyes of a bully
Cannot run, they give chase
Cannot hide, they will seek
Cannot fight, they can attack
Never escape the eyes of a bully
Tormented, the girl is scared and alone
Forever fearing everyone around
Her good heart blackened with fear and anger
Afraid of the eyes of a bully
People Do ChangePeople do change, this is truePeople Do Change5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But it's how they change, that confuses you
Some change for the better, some for the worse
Their descision is a blessing, or it's a curse
Let me tell you a story, about two people i knew
They were the closest friends, with differences few
Attracted to another, they began to date
It lasted not long, it was not in thier fate
This was the starting point, each thier own change
They became distant, their friendship strange
the pain inside triggered something deep within their cores
Each thought they were weak, they wanted something more
The girl, guilty of her weakness, chose to stand on her own
Not wanting to burden another, her spirit had grown
Holding her head up high, she refused to be brought down
Surrounding herself with happiness, her strength was found
The boy, hatred of his weakness, chose to push others away
Not wanting to be criticized, his anger was his way
Standing against others, he refused negitive words to be spoken
Demanding his own happiness,
When the Storm HitsWhen the storm hits, it hits hard,When the Storm Hits1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Bit by bit it breaks you apart,
One thing here, another there,
Things will never be like before,
It can't be when she's been taken away,
There will be no sun to bright this day,
The rain pours from the black sky,
As I'm forced to say my final good-bye,
When the storm hits, it slams down,
Burying you farther into the ground,
Slipping down into the rock-bottom pit,
There's no escaping this storm that hit,
Lightning strikes, injuring another,
Worries flood the mind for my father,
He'll survive, but the damage is done,
All I want is to be able to see the sun,
When the storm hits, it strangles the light,
Ripping it away where it's out of sight,
The thunder screams its mighty roar,
Warnings, brace yourself for more,
I wait it out, hoping it will all pass,
No one knows how long this storm will last,
All we can do is try to take cover,
I pray this storm will soon be over,
Forget MeIt's funny you can't forget me,Forget Me1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You still bring up my name, the cause of your pain,
I'm the cause of all your friends to run away,
You speak of the day as if it was only yesterday
Putting your own spin on the storyline of events,
You say this, you say that, but what does it matter?
My name is only a tool to gain others' sympathy,
When in truth they'll never know the real me,
Erased in your life I remain only a memory,
That's what you wanted, the path you chose,
Forget me now, I don't want to be part of this show,
What's done is done, just let it all go,
It's behind us now, why can't we forget?
Com on don't tell me you still have regrets?
What happened happened, no changing the past,
The words to be said you're speaking them last,
There is no apology to the friends you had,
Why do you remember me when there is no forgiving?
It be best for both of us if there is only forgetting,
Forget me, let this memory be erased,
I don't want to be a memory that causes pain,
If I could, I would take i
Caged WolfFangs drenched in bloodCaged Wolf5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Eyes fierce with rage
Sliver fur, blackened with mud
Chained inside a steel cage
Pounding against the bars
Strengthened by iron-will
Ignoring the bleeding scars
The pain that will never heal
Howls of painful fury
Bloody fangs sending fear
Traitors shall worry
The escape is near
Once broken free
Enemies shall fall
This wolf will always be
Untamed by all
Forgiveness...Forgiveness brings the soul peace,Forgiveness...2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Memories that haunt fade away,
Bleeding scars have healed over,
Anger has simmered down,
I forgave to end the misery,
"Forgive and forget brings you peace",
But can the mind forget what the heart remembers?
The knife that slammed into my chest,
Your arms of protection was my destruction,
False loyalty clouded my judgement,
Twisting the knife as you twist your lies,
turning your back, I die inside,
I forgave to end my pain,
"Forgiveness will set you free",
But can there be freedom when chained?
Digging my grave with your hatred,
Slam the shovel breaking me down,
Remorseless eyes pierce into mine,
Pushing the blade deeper with each moment,
Spitting on my name, I break inside,
I forgave to end this torment,
"Forgiving shall start the healing",
But can the wounds heal if they're torn open?
An innocent facade strangles my heart,
Recruiting your soldiers for my destruction,
Cries of surrender reach blocked walls,
The blade breaks apart living within,
