A Canvas Of SkinMisleading landscapes and a depleting cast,A Canvas Of Skin4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Gave strength by forcing me to become the last,
I have a canvas of skin,
An outlet for my assumed sin,
It moves and ages, however can't brake,
Inward anger its main function is to take,
Lost tears and misinformed expressions,
On a canvas of skin, leave meaningful impressions,
I climb a hill that can only get steeper,
I watch my mother and siblings standing next to the smiling reaper,
We connect then hide behind swaying shadows they hide,
I can hug them again, however first must suicide,
If I give in that doesn't mean I give up,
It's just that my canvas of skin has had enough,
The arrival of bandages means they were to late,
A second behind my thought process, again I wait,
For the smile before the frown,
For the appreciation before the crown,
For the smell before the flower,
For the second before the hour,
For the crop before the seed,
And, for the pain before the aging bleed,
Misleading landscapes and a depleting cast,
Depression, a pen meet

This is what we live by
The jist of life itself.
Have fun, party, you only have so many years so do stupid things, take stupid drugs, have crazy sex and never let your soul go because your body is only a physical means of carrying your mind and soul through life
As loing as nothing damages your soul do all the crazy shit to your shell as you want.
God or whoever the fuck didn't put us here to sit on our asses and
and watch the tube or read about bad news
you got a problem then fucking do something about it
you depressed then drink a fucking bottle of syrup, wipe your face, and make it better
go love someone or give someone your umbrella or whatever the hell good sumeritans do I can't fucking spell sumaritans
but go have some fun while you last. do it. go. right now. yes you. all of you. get outta here.
this is what the deciples of whoever created rock live for. the buzz the excitement the accidentally getting too drunk before a gig. but no one cares because they're all in it with you.

My bruises run deep.
My eyes are bloodshot,
From where I weep.
The blood trickles cold,
Down my face.
Insults haunt me,
At your embrace.
You grab hold of my shoulders,
And bellow and shout.
I cry and I struggle,
And try to run out.
Yet you block me and kick me,
As I lay there and scream.
Left with terrified thoughts,
All lost hopes and dreams.

The slam of a door.
A city of anger,
Eyes swollen and sore.
The rhythm of tears,
Flown from four eyes.
The beat of two hearts,
Made the same size.
The despair in our bloodstream,
The loss in our voice.
The sound of my scream,
'Cause we had no choice.

Rock Camp 2011
My boyfriend is a rockstar,
and don't know that I exist,
He lives so far away from me,
That gets me really pissed,
My man was born so long ago,
He's long-gone past his prime,
My sweetie's in the graveyard,
But he's still my valentine,
From Seattle down to Woodstock,
From L.A to Tennessee,
From Liverpool to London,
Our love can never be,
We'll never be together,
Cuz I was born too late,
And with THIS guy setting standards,
I'll NEVER get a date,

Roger looked reluctantly at the amber bottle that sat in between him and the overdone, sequined strawberry bomb in front of him, then at the puffy rouge lips that had somehow attracted him only an hour ago. Now they seemed to tacky; it felt like it would be a strain to kiss them instead of a pleasure.
"Well? Gonna spin, Mr. Waters?"
Oh, he hated when she called him that. This was all too goddamned fake. Mind you, it would have been great, were he still smashed, but it always wore off quickly for him. Apparently more so than others, he thought as he shot a glance over at the mascara-clumped hazy eyes that watched him, looking up and down his body like he was on display at a museum.
Might as well get it over with, though. She didn't want to stay all night and it was already way late.
He took the clammy bottle in hi

I never really had
You make the sun look sleepy and gold
like an old photograph
Take me flying to the stars with just the hope to stay
Hey pretty radio take me somewhere I haven't been today
Your voice is pure madness, truth and
sometimes maybe love
I can't conceive of this not being
created up above
Make me float on bubbling poems and lonely guitar licks
Pretty radio, turn it up so we can get our kicks
Feeling so small
Feeling so endless
Feeling so little
When you're away
So let me set a lazy sail
on your sideways thinking ship
Makes me sad to think of life
as just a passing trip
I can feel and I can think as long as there is you
Though you know just what you are you still have to ask who
So sink into my every whim
conducted by your mood
The desperate, wild and sad but never
Oh my lonesome ears cry something bad when you're away
Hey pretty radio take me somewhere I haven't been today
Alone in the worldI'm alone, it's just me and the dark,Alone in the world4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
No people, no noise, no kids at the park.
There's no-one to talk to, no reason to smile,
Everyone you knew has been dead for a while.
There's no emergency services and nowhere to go,
The trains aren't running and your legs are too slow.
Your heart's getting weaker, your soul slips from your reach,
Time's stopped, the tide won't come in from the beach.
The clouds don't move, the car engine won't start,
The silent is complete yet the thump of your heart.
Overwhelmed with grief, you drop to the floor,
You wish to die, you can't take any more.
Your soul rises up and you're left to die,
The tears fall down in one, last cry.

Take it to the limit.
And when you need to,
Let it be.
Don't stop believing in what you want to believe. Don't let this world restrict you. Don't let people restrict you.
And most importantly don't let yourself do it either.
And don't fake it.
Because if you do, you'll end up in a life
That wasn't meant for you.
But come as you are
And you'll end up in the one you wanted.
Just gimme some truth, and I'll show you how beautiful the world can be.
Take chances. Don't do that 'what if' shit. Don't even take it.
High hopes and dreams.
People are strange, but they're also human. Humans do what humans do.
Make mistakes, do stupid things.
Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself and not one person in this whole goddamn crazy flipping floating sphere in this endless flow of space and time can tell you how to do it.
You know it.
And when you get it
When you really get it
It's more than a feeling.
So stop trying to find who you are.

Is this schizophrenia?I'm seeing myself as a two-part person :Is this schizophrenia?4 years ago in Emotional More Like This
The One who thinks and the One who acts.
A bunch of people know the One who acts.
A bunch of people know the One who thinks.
But only a few of them know both of them.
The One who thinks is the One talking through these words.
The One who acts is some One you might never meet.
The favorite action of the One who acts is to do nothing. I don't often speak, I don't often show emotions. Some One called me socially incompetent, another One called me coward, a third One called me mysterious. Most of them just call me a friend.
The favorite thoughts of the One who thinks is to think about everything. While people see the stars as little shiny dots in the sky, I can't forbid me to think to the giant balls of flaming gas beyond billions of miles of space. It's just amazing how human can put bareers to prevent his mind from seeing everything at once.

Stop talking about differences between girls 'n boys and just treat me like a human being. My pussy is the only thing that makes me a girl.And even if I don't feel like 100% girl or just entirely flat 'feminine' one (not that I feel like male in a female body, in fact that kind of things doesn't really matter too much for me) does it mean you have to make fun on me or saying all those ridiculous stuffs? No.
Oh, by the way. Note that it's ME and this is MY point of view. I don't want to say that gender isn't important at all but I think there are too many things that are dependent on it and there are too many silly stereotypes about both men and women. And those who feel 'other' in any way like lesbians, gays or transsexual ones.
However, it doesn't matter much to ME as well as my orientation.

She forced open the metal door before her with a kick and glared down below at the gear-infested factory in the underground chamber. Sparks of ember glided across the smoky channel and she could see the many prisoners in white masks and chains pounding down on iron objects going down the industrial line.
Campara frustratingly flew down into the smoky, fiery unit and began scanning the entire occupied area until she finally found her little brother Chimabell sitting at a high level watching boxes get thrown into the furnace. He laughed cutely each time a box went in and got burned. Then his small attention was finally caught.
