SavagesSkulls' gaping jaws open to the moon.Savages3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
They are crushed my the stomping feet and raving bodies.
All emotion fades into blood-lust.
Blood, used as war paint, covers the swaying bodies.
Content to rule with claws,
Savages rock the continents til they sink.
May we be rescued?
Or will we drop off the edge of the earth?
Is this a gift?
I'm rendered useless in society now...
Are you happy?
Innocence lost into the pain of cold hearts and broken bodies.
We're all going to Hell in the end.

The thought worries me,
that I might just forget it all.
I'll forget the spontaneous times
where I would feel happy,
for really... no apparent reason.
I'm so scared,
that I'll wake up and
not remember anything,
and even if it means
losing the depressing memories -
I can't bear to let it go.
It shaped me into what I am today,
believe it or not -
all those sad, depressing memories.
And if I were to age and perhaps just
forget it all...
I would lose myself.
What would I do?
Who would I be?
Oh, sweet and painful memories -
please, never leave me.
I Find MyselfI find myself in my bedroom walls,I Find Myself1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
Silent and ever watchful.
I find myself in the worn living room floors,
Beaten down until used to it.
I find myself underneath my bed,
Understanding that I am my own monster.
I find myself looking at the door,
Wondering when it will open.
I find myself peeping through the window,
But night leaves nothing in my sight.
I find myself in old conversations,
My heart finally still.
I find myself stamped into black words,
Wishing for white paint.
I find myself in moonlight,
And beg for the sun.
I find myself in a dream,
After all of this nightmare.
I find myself crying,
Because you are still there.
I find myself hoping that this,
This is the last time.
I find myself turning from you,
There is no use lying.
I find myself smiling,
I find myself a lost cause,
I always find myself
Waiting for you.

Do They Still RememberYou wonder.Do They Still Remember5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Do people from the past still remember you?
Do they really miss you like they say they do?
Do they still care?
Do they remember that explosive personality of yours?
Do they still think of you when they hear something you used to say?
Do they still keep some space in their heart, just for you?
Or have you been erased from their memories, blown away by the present.
Like leaves, pulled away from their home as they change color.
Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
Phases of the MoonI believe I've finally found something to compare you to...Phases of the Moon3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
You're the moon.
Constant and proud.
All-seeing and honest.
But all this happens in phases.
One night, you allow me to see all of you, broken or not.
The next, you find faults in everything I do.
Afterwards, you apologize, and allow me some of what I've lost.
Then you're cold.
I love you,
but theses feelings are killing me.
My moon, my constant, you're torturing me.
I usually tighten my hands into fists and give into you.
But I can't. Not now.
Do you wish me to go?
Do you want me to leave you alone?
Say the words.
You've promised me you would.
Or do you want to leave me alone, here, with your moonbeams still shinning on my face?

used to eat yellow paint
so that he could get
the happiness inside of him.
especially on nights like this,
I wonder if that would work.
I wonder if the pigment
would seep into my intestines:
would spread through my veins
like an elixir:
would curl and coil and cast
on every angle, every aspect
of my body.
I wonder if endless trials
and retrials of drugs
could be replaced by the
occasional dose of cadmium,
liquid sunshine, intangible dream
I swear I can almost
I wonder if it would do
than make me sick,
curled up on the bathroom floor
and left choking on a life
that I can never have.
Dark WonderlandMy fingers are bloody from clawing through these shattered dreams.Dark Wonderland3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Darkness has been drawing its smothering cloak over me.
The skies still glimmer with surviving hope.
My eyes shimmer with tears that hold an emotion colored kaleidoscope.
Is there still a light in the darkness?
I don't want to feel the thorns sharp caress.
Save me from these tormenting thoughts,
Which have me caught,
Inside their barbed cage.
I want to still the rage.
Can you see my hands impaled on the sides,
Of this prison that traps my mind?
Blood is dripping down the stems,
Of these black roses shining with liquid gems.
Someone wake me up and take my hand.
I lost myself in this dark Wonderland.
How did I believe this was an escape?
Now I can hear the monsters claws as they scrape,
Over this blackened earth.
My salvation is now a curse.
What a fool I was.
All my dreams now lay in dust.
Is there still a light in the darkness?
I don't want to feel the thorns sharp caress.
Save me from these tormenting t

You aren't just another friend
You mean much more to me
Every time I see you
I just feel...
I forget of all the terrible things in life when I'm with you
You make me just want to smile
Just smile and play
As if we were kids again
When I'm around you
I know that everything will be okay
I can always just be myself
And I know that you will never judge me
I just want to let you know....
I love you and I always will!
What If...?What if one more lonely dayWhat If...?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is just too much for you to take
What if it's too long
What if it's too far away
What if every time I tried
To make you feel like it's alright
You still broke down
You still cried
What if every word I said
Had never stuck inside your head
Would you be here
In his stead
It's just one more lonely day
They come and then they go away
And every time
I say you're mine
Keep what I said
In your head
Cause I know that it may seem too long
Like that day is just too far away
Please know that I'll still be around
To dry your tears, won't let you drown
As long as you remain here too
Cause nobody could replace you...

hiding within a cage
of leaves and twigs
why do you not rise?
One who hangs so near to the sky
has no right to neglect it
to return to the ground
and crawl amongst the worms beneath
like those you chose to rise above
like those who can only aspire
to be so near to the sky as you.
Child of feather and beauty
Hanging between wonder and despair
to do not hear the sound
of your wings' sadness
do you not hear how they weep?
How they beg for a return
for a chance
to bask amongst the clouds
for which they were meant to see.
Children of wonder and sunlight
will rise above your chains
of fear and hoplesness?
Rise and fly
above me , above the Earth
above all of us
and let us watch
from the shadows of your wings.
will you fly for yourself,
will you fly fo

Despite my struggles there is no release
I am controlled by a grasp superior to that of the body
I am free of tethers, of ropes, and of chains
Despite the distance of I have travelled, I see you everywhere, in everything
There is no weight upon my shoulders but a heaviness I cannot shake
I am troubled with burdens past my years
While my skin shines of youth, my heart is plagued with darkness
I have been placed in a world of innocence in which I no longer belong
What you have taken has worth beyond a price
My eyes are no longer bright, my heart no longer light, and my hands no longer clean
You are haunting me with a promise I cannot keep
fallenHer skin pale, taut, torn,fallen7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Her eyes cast at the mournful moon.
'How long,' She whispers,
Since the day bled out? Since
She'd been alone in the moonlight?
Broken wings folded neatly, she stood.
Bare feet on broken glass, blood
On the cold stone floor.
She looks up again, the shattered roof
Of the abandoned church.
The young priest shudders.
His words lose all meaning, fading
Into the echoes of her whimpers.
A thousand questions voiced at once.
She turns her head, black hair and lace
Falling gracefully around her pale face. With
A single tear drop of crimson blood.
She touches the place her wings once were.
'I...' Her words choke her. How long untill
She can fly again, laugh again, love again?
'I have fallen!' She hangs her head. Another tear.
A thousand discarded feathers mark her path to earth.
A thousand era's to death...
Just Say NoFor some absurd reason,Just Say No3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have a memory of you
Asking me to marry you.
We were sitting on the hill,
Like we normally did,
Looking towards the bay,
And I remember that the water
Was sparkling like liquid diamond.
It was high summer,
And there were those
Butterflies, the ones I love
Amongst the wildflowers
I was in a dress for once,
Pale pink silk gauze,
And you'd spread your jacket
Out for me to sit on.
I turned round,
And your eyes nearly
Like white light
Through green leaves.
You opened your hand,
And there was the most
Perfect ring, gold and one
Deep emerald, like
Looking into the soul of growth
It was a pretty proposal,
Out in the open,
In the sun,
From the most beautiful
In the world.
I remember I said no.
