Threatening CorrosionStone. Bone shattering material or, buildings, as they've been named. Grey and red, different shades; tall and short, they're so different, yet all the same. Rough surfaces protect our kind and create our place of hibernation.Threatening Corrosion5 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
We cower in stone and are shielded from all that which makes our planet: Nature. The weather and animals; all we ever do is complain.
Without them, there would be no us.
Above the tops of the so-called buildings are remnants of what used to be. Sparkling in the night's sky, a place only Gods are said to reach (until humanity tossed that rule aside) are they Angels? Do they frown at what our world has become? Even so, they shine brightly to guide the few not yet lost in society.
What has become of us?
Rarely do we humans walk. Why bother? We have metal machines to do the labor. Nothing is done without the help of foreign technology with it, why should we make the effort?
That is what we have
Outsider He's not from around hereOutsider5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
He's different from us
The words he speaks are different
And hard to understand
His skin is different too
Also the shape of his face
He stands out in a crowd
Of people that are like me
Everyone hates him
because he's different from us
But he doesn't care
He doesn't care because he's different
I like that he's so different
I wonder if he can tell
I wonder if I stand out
In a crowd to him
I wonder if he thinks i'm different
I wonder if he understands me
Darkest FearIt's dark outside and your not here,Darkest Fear5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You have comfirmed my darkest fear,
My one you were,
but now no more,
You took my heart and half my soul.
You said you'd be here,
Said you'd be,
My one and only,
Can't you see,
I live no more,
I have no love,
You were my angel from above.
With shadows coming tears I bear,
My walls all crumble,
Enclosed within it's deadly grasp,
An unknown future,
A hunted past...

Sometimes its hard to distinguish
between the two
but it's hard....
not to be attracted to someone
with such beauty and strength as he
specially when he makes laugh
and smile when i don't feel
To him it's lust
for me it's love
I take him in because I'd rather it'd
be me than some other girl
I know I'll get hurt
but for him it's a risk I'm willing
Why Do You Sleep?Why Do You Sleep?Why Do You Sleep?6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I sleep to escape the bitterness reality has to offer
I sleep so from pain I wont have to suffer
I sleep to calm my unrested soul even for a while
I sleep to get myself to dream and smile
I sleep so I wont have to say goodbye
To the same thing that makes me laugh and cry
I sleep so I can continue loving with all my heart
Perhaps in my sleep we will never be apart
If in my dreams you can return my love too
Then I wont have to wake up and be blue
If in my dreams we can be together
I would sleep forever.

You've Saved My LifeYou've saved my lifeYou've Saved My Life5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Take this away
I don't want this knife
Place it gently in your hand
Do what you want with it
Just remove it from this land
You hold me gently
And softly whisper
How proud you are of me
Slowly running your fingers over my scars
The very last traces
Of the damage I've done to my arms
Wiping my tears away
You pull me close again
As my pain slowly starts to fade
You've healed my heart
And brought back
That magic spark
I feel hope for the days to come
As this dangerous cycle ends
And your warmth surrounds me like the sun

can you see the hate
in my eyes?
Even If I laugh I'm
screaming inside to be
You promised you won't
hurt me and its funny how
you still think you deserve me.
How can people be so blind
as they read these words and
not see my hopeless cries.
I hold it all in because there is
no one to trust. But latter on the
stories will be written on my arm
I still won't let you go even
if i don't know you. But its
your fault I'm in
a tearful sorrow.

There had once been a time that man had universally decided upon the rule, "Be quiet in the library." It happened long ago and the rule still stands to this day. Or, so it should.
"I heard we might be getting a new transfer student," a hushed, excited whisper echoed through the large room.
The room was filled with wooden bookcases, fully stacked on every shelf, along with a few reading nooks and tables, lined with multiple chairs. The elegant tables were meant for those who wished to study or do their homework in the library, a thing many students took advantage of. To top off the look, a beautiful, golden chandelier hung off the ceiling in the middle of the room.
"Really..? When? How do you know that?"
I scowled at the noise, looking up from my book. I was sitting on one of the rather comfortable reading chairs in the farthest corner to maintain my privacy. However, it became quite difficult to concentrate with meaningless conversations tainting the silence.
"I think s
