Devil's WineI drank the Devil's wineDevil's Wine3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As we were sitting on my bed
His bright eyes gleaming
I had swallowed my death
In my nightmares
My skin is splitting
My face is shriveling
And my bones sanguine
My hear is ice
My lungs are fire
My body burns
As my breath freezes
A blood-curling scream
Scratching at my soul
God, help me please!
There goes the Devil's laughter
For my tongue is gone
As is my final breath
I drank the Devil's wine
It's all in your head...She heard the music in her headIt's all in your head...3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Even when she slept in her bed
The tune was never ending
The tone was forever bending
She scarred her face to make it stop
Her world exploded with a pop
Don't hurt my baby, please
My, my, the fates are such a tease
I'll laugh and cry
Meanwhile she'll die
The music is in her mind
2. Love, Shadows, and the Sun He had no idea how great her love was, and the second he realized how great her love was he lost her.2. Love, Shadows, and the Sun3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And he had loved her just as much. What was he to do with love that couldn't do anything? He left it to die in the Shadows, and there the Sun never came.
His love stood frozen and numb. So long had it been in ice that when the Sun shined again the love cracked and started to destroy itself; to break.
Only the Sun's fire could melt the ice, but the Sun was so furious, sad. And so, the Sun stopped shining until the day love continued to live between them again.
Who knows when the day will come?
Bloody RedYou are painted in redBloody Red4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Red and black and white
Splattered across your lips
Your eyes are painted in green
The witch eyes of a queen
Empty black pupils
Your hand is painted with soft cream
Nails the color of your soul
Your body is painted with black lace
Curling over curves
In a lonely dying embrace
Your soul is painted in ribbons
Of your hopes and dreams
Of all the fallen
The MirrorMy heart burst into a million shards of glassThe Mirror3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And you tried to pick them up one by one
Did you not care that you cut yourself?
Drops of blood fell from your fingertips
As I watched you pathetically, laying on the floor
Why did you love me so much?
A single stumble - you fell breaking the shards even worst
But you, my beautiful darling, kept on going
Are you not tired of me?
Try putting me back together
And I come back
But what is life without you?

My throat was itchy. I coughed. Maybe I was thirsty? Was I dehydrated? Was I getting sick again?
I looked at the cold, bare trees outside. It was winter and it was cold outside. The twins' birthday was just tomorrow and I still hadn't picked up their present from the store. It was bought and wrapped, just waiting to be taken home.
I shook my hair out with my fingers.
"What's shaking, oh darling niece of mine?" my uncle Callum asked grinning and rubbing my head as though I were a toddler.
"What did you get the twins' for tomorrow?" I asked looking up at him.
All Royals were breathtakingly beautiful. My uncle stood tall with his dark looks. The Dark family had darker looks. He had

Lovely DisgustThe World was BeautifulLovely Disgust3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Filled with ever changing Colors and Lights
People would Evolve, becoming Miraculous
But then I saw a Change that was far from Greatness
Everything became Nasty and riddled with Disgust
It all grew into something Wrong and Impure
My Hatred for the People I used to Love started to Grow
Just as their Filthiness Grew
And I thought of ways to Light them All on Fire
But like Armored Knights they came
My Friends I had previously Abandoned
And they showed me the unfiltered light within the

And I have forgotten my namesake
Who am I in the darkest hours of the day?
There's a little girl who walks down the road
Making mistakes I try to correct
And she looks too much like me
A little boy watches her go
He laughs at her
But in the end, there's nothing left of him
Who are you in the darkest hours of the day?

If I can grant you nothing else
I only wish to save you
Because you're killing yourself inside
Forgive me if I take away your sanity

The day you stop telling me to go away

That's all she can say
As she stares into the dark moor
Into the emptiness
And she's dying
But no one can save her
She tells me words that pierce my heart
Words that take turn in stabbing my soul
"You can't save me"
Murmurs said so sweetly
Do you know who you are in death?
"I love you"
I love you too
But saying so will kill me with you

MonkeysMy monkeys laughMonkeys4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Their brown fur ruffling in the wind
They sway side to side
Swinging on a tree
They jump on the bed
As I read them a book
A book about other monkeys falling off and hitting their head
Eating their bananas
Clear joy in their faces
They fill my heart with warmth
Because they're not really monkeys
But they might as well be.
They're my baby brothers, my own monkeys.
1. Introduction (edited)I'll give you an introduction1. Introduction (edited)3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
One that never ends
Because we are forever
Our love never descends
The introduction began with a song
Sang throughout so many years
My voice adds to its crescendo
All to the children's ear
My introduction is about a girl
Or maybe it's a boy's beginning
Of how they grew to be
Into something horrendous
So stay tuned
Because introductions last forever
Since we always discover new things
Rotting ThroneThere were many people who fell that day. I was not one of them. But then the rest started to break, like aged puppets. I was not one of them.Rotting Throne4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
But then I looked around at the residue. Straying souls, empty bodies, black eyes, and the smell of lost hope in the air.
One person pushed their self over the edge, to fall and to break. Like an aged puppet with broken strings. But it was not just a puppet, it was a marionette.
That person was me.
I fell to fix the cruel sadness. And I came back. We all did.
But we had forgotten.
Never forget your scars. They will grow. You will forget to heal them, mend them. And so they grow. Grow. Grow. Grow.
They grew. Grew. Grew. Grew.
And again, many people started to fall. A second time. The rest to break. A second time. But I was not either of them.
They were imbeciles.
I stayed on my throne. Ruled all of nothingness.
Then the impossible happened...
I started to rot. Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot.

It was my fault, really. I was the reason I had been kidnapped. If I had just listened my family.
I closed my closet and I sighed. It really was too early to be angry at the world.
I had gotten dressed and not for the first time I was exasperated that so many Nobles and Guest were at my home, the only place I could feel remotely at peace. Seeing as though they were around I couldn't dress as I normally would, in jeans and some shirt. No I had
LimboWe are caught on stringsLimbo3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That are impossible to cut
So we must rip them off our souls
Despite the fact that doing so will break us
We will fall off our wooden crosses
Into a never ending red abyss
Some of us will crash into the hard concrete
Ending with mangled bodies of broken bones
Bones that will pierce through our flesh
Sticking out as white stained red
Yet other will grow wings and fly
They shall soar with all their colors
And together they shall recreate
Bringing back the things that had ceased to exist
But beyond those two chances, there will be another
The others who will only continue to fall
Those immortals that will live on forever
Limbo is much worse than both Heaven and Hell

trying to get away,
trying to ignore what they do,
forget about what they say.
No move I ever make,
can ever be one right,
every simple thing I say,
always starts a fight.
I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
the way I'm supposed to be,
the thing is your slowly killing me,
why can't you see?
I'd really like to run away,
where someone would understand,
to someone who could see my pain,
and gently take my hand.

alone in the cold.
I can almost see the wind blow.
It brings back memories,
memories of you.
The way you used to smile,
you know, back we were two.
three musketeers minus one, "best friends".
The warth of your hug,
and those silly jokes you told,
while trying to cheer me up, force one smile out of me.
I opened up to you, telling you everything.
& now thinking back I realize...
you told me nothing.
Nothing worth knowing, anyway.
Whatever happened? Did you just get bored?
I'm not always cheery, not always interesting,
but I thought best friends was more than that.
Maybe I was too eager,
eager to believe I finally had someone,
some to call my best friend.
you were the closest to it,
almost the closest I'd ever had.
now you're just every other "friend" in the hallway.
