and I probably don't
But how can I ever begin to understand
if you never tell me anything?
Are you okay?
How am I supposed to know
if you always tell me
what you think I want to hear
Tell me how everything is falling apart
how you hate everything
Just don't tell me lies
I can't help you
when all you show me
is a wall
I can't help you
unless you help me first
Help me understand
even if I never truly will

Hush, don't make a sound.
Let the wind play its lullaby,
for the moon to shine so bright,
and light the way for them
towards the safe haven they share.
Can't you hear them?
They're closeby, listen
to the silence that greets
their arrival tonight.
But maybe, and just maybe
if you listen very carefully,
you might hear their story
being whispered among the trees.
Of a love so legendary,
it could set Heaven ablaze,
of battles so fierce, no one
thought they might cease.
But the fates spoke, and
their hearts met in a single beat.
He was the king of Hell,
A creature of darkness and fear,
His life spent in bloodshed and battles,
never caring for a cry or a plea.
Bathing in a sea of blood and tears.
The king had no weakness to be told
She was a blazing angel of light,
So pure and tender, never knew what hate was like.
Fighting so the Lord's word could prevail,
always aiming towards the dying daylight.
Yet the wheel of time spun, and she fell astray

Where is she hiding, and why did she go?
Daddy, don't lie to me, please, pretty please
It's like I can hear her voice within the breeze.
Daddy, don't lie to me, where did she run?
Daddy, I know all the things you have done.
Daddy, don't lie to me, I've seen her scars
Hidden from me like the faraway stars.
Daddy, don't tell me, I don't wanna hear
I'm hoping these thoughts are just worries, just fears.
Daddy, don't tell me, I can't stand the facts
I just wanna think this is some silly act.
Daddy, I love you, you know this is true
But honestly, why do you do what you do?
Daddy, I saw you when you pushed her down
She screamed and she cried, and you made not a sound.
Daddy, I saw you when you stabbed her back
She fell to the floor and again, you attacked.
Daddy, I saw when you stole her goodbyes
And Daddy, I saw when you silenced her cries.
Daddy, don't lie to me, I know the truth...
You hurt her, you killed her, you've darkened my youth.
Daddy, don't hu
In Dreams, I flyIf I believe I can fly, then let meIn Dreams, I fly2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
What does it matter to you if I fall?
If my heart lies in the sky, forget me.
For then I wont remember you at all.
Your love is today, but what for morrow
Your promise is now, but what for tonight?
These lies you speak do fill me with sorrow
But up in the stars, my hopes lie so bright.
In sleeping away the cold December
My slumber lies all my worries to rest.
Inside of me, my heart cant remember
The last time the sun came up from the west
If I believe I can be what Im not
Forget me for life, and the love I sought.
Failure is not an optionSilent tears streaked down your cheeks,Failure is not an option3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
your lips trembling as you raised the deadly artifact to your head.
Studying in the morning,
studying in the evening.
Going to the gym to stay fit,
not eating much to maintain your poise.
Failure is not an option.
Not at preparing for your future.
Sitting alone at lunch,
your nose always stuck in a book,
makes it hard for people to approach you.
You failed there,
being osctrasized from social groups.
Your former friends turned their backs on you,
all you did was study,
no fun allowed.
Jeering echoed through the hall,
why were you always such a stick in the mud?
Why weren't you ever invited to parties,
why didn't you have a boyfriend?
Cold laughter filled the corridors
as you were tripped,
books flying and glasses cracking.
No helping hand,
nor friendly chastise.
A red handprint clearly visible
on your pale face.
Head in hands,
staring at the moon all night.
a cruel laughing stock.
A quiver of your mou
What is heart?Where do we set our home?What is heart?1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where do we feel warm?
Where is there no doubt?
A heart knows where the home is.
That is the warmth.
That is where we belong...
Never is there a doubt of what we can do.
Never is there a doubt of what can happen.
So long as I am home.
Whether home is an actual place,
Or a person that we love.
As long as we know they are there.
That is love.
When we live for them.
Allow for them to remain protected.
That is why we remain.
We fight for our home.
We fight to survive.
Little StarYou think you're the star,Little Star2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Flying way up high.
Nothing can touch you.
You own the sky.
Your colors are bright,
no one shines brighter.
You're number one....
till you go a bit higher.
Farther in the sky,
there are stars that shine true,
and you cannot compare.
You're just little old you.
Those stars are huge.
You'll never compare.
Don't even try.
Don't even dare.
You're small and weak.
They're big and strong.
Your shine is meek,
and theirs is long.
So just give up.
There's nothing to do.
You're not good enough,
yes, it's true.
It's not true at all.
Those stars may be big,
but keep standing tall.
You're a star too,
no matter the size.
Don't believe the insults.
Don't believe the lies.
Yes your shine is unique,
and done your own special way,
and that's all that really matters
at the end of the day.
So shine your best little star,
and know this to be true.
You may not be perfect,
but you're perfectly you.

You’re all torn out and cold
Even if all you see is darkness
You’re the bit of light that’s shining
And I know you don’t have control
But you can't just let go
Because if one day you do, you might lose yourself
Then I’ll be left alone, with no one to hold.
BeautyHow enlightened have I been this day,Beauty3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
What ignorance have I harbored here,
What naïveté to the uttered phrase,
To which I so freely lent my tongue:
Of shining heavens in northern skies,
Of frigid homelands painted frost,
Of darkness, sweet, impassioned night,
And heaving squalls of sighing seas.
What beauty have I thought to know,
And all that I have yet to see,
Thrill me not, with certainty,
'Tis is all for naught, now I see thee!
A Thief's SongThe time is rightA Thief's Song2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
to pull this scheme
And steal tonight
Something of value
Something of worth
Something of silver
Something of gold
The nobles are clueless
Their loot is out in the open
they are so foolish
leaving their treasure for me
You'll curse my name
search for me high and low
I'll never be tamed
for I'll steal when you're not there
Take me awayGet me out of hereTake me away1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Take me away
Out there it's dangerous
That's what You say
But I want to feel, see, explore
Right here I'm bored,
I want more
What's in the world out there
How does love feel
Is it like the movies
Take me away from here to live
I can feel I've got a lot to give
If I didn't know any better
I'd accept what I've got
But thank god I know better
So I do not
I know that there is more than this
Things I really don't want to miss

Let's watch the rose pedals fall
Let's bury your castle
And put up a brick wall
Lets rip off your butterfly wings
And place them in your grave
The demons have come to get you
You better start to behave
Come with me, little girl
For you can only have the gown for an hour
Do they love you, or love you not,
Ripping pedals off a flower
Come with me, little girl
Let's open your scars
And bury your castle,
In the girl you no longer are...

Ruin everything I've built.

Make my endless hurt last.

Leave me hanging loose.
I won't let the world win;
My life is only just about to begin.
