the bluebirds fly
the shells will scream
their silent cry
when divers come
to get the pearl
you raised so long
for a little girl
five years you were working
for the final move
get it ready in time!
For the final approve
he CRACKS you
he SMACKS you
he HACKS you
and you were just shielding
your little pearl
and while you are sighing
the diver is smiling
and while you are dying
the princess is crying
'cause you had to die
for the princess' delight.

How doth the little butterfly flap it's tiny wings?
Uhm... no. That's not right.
Little butterfly; your tiny wings are so colourful.
They represent, dreams and hopes for the future.
But sadly, those dreams and hopes are easily crushed.
As easily as you are, little one...
Those dreams and hopes for the future were all crushed,
When your frail little body hit the windshield of that car.
I heard the crunch of all the parts of your body, breaking.
Along with you, my hopes and dreams,
For my future self,

"Unless..." OnceLer read out loud as he walked over to the pile of rocks. He had ruined everything. He had let his selfishness get the best of him. He was blind as he polluted the world. He had cut down every tree...no more were left.
"Unless..." He read again as he tried to understand the meaning of the word. That one little word that The Lorax had left for him. Engraved onto those rocks would be the start of his new journey.
"Unless...I can fix this." He got an idea. He walked over to a tree stump. The one surrounded by a circle of rocks. The first tree he had chopped down. He leaned down near it and there it laid. A seed.
He picked up the seed and basked in its glory. He knew what he had to do. With this seed he would fix everything. He would be the answer to "Unless".
"Unless someone cares enough to bring back the tress...Unless someone fixes this...Unless I mend my mistake." He said out loud.
Standing up the Once-Ler pocketed the seed and started walking.

Departing many memories, along with friends.
The three years were quick, but I'll never forget
These fun-filled years you presented to me.
I never thought I would ... change this way.
Stepping in the classroom, I felt just different.
That grasp for an answer, that is just right there
That feeling of love, for the beauty of math.
I never thought I would ... depart someday.
To the cruel, fuzzy land high above.
I'll miss you all ... but I must go.
Go and go, to seek something new
Something which I can spin out, from all of those years.
To share the love
And beauty ...
Of the mathematics world.

Rain Of Fate
The proud flags were torn away
When warfare came
Burning buildings collapsed
Just like the nations which used to stand
We're no longer united
Because we're consumed by fighting
Quarreling over desires / selfishness is earned
Money sets lives on fire / morals are governed
Humanity conquered this gift of nature
Because we were given this curse of failure
Just our simple touch turns beauty into torture
And we won't stop, until we get more and more
The sins of our fathers
The prayers of our mothers
The tears of our sisters
The blood of our brothers
A man-made cycle of life and death
Believing in religion; and abiding by justice
Living a life of crime, and an unmatched wickedness
Made-up answers to made-up questions is all we will get
The last living tree burned
Pity among Mother Earth mourned
The dark clouds shed tear drops of forgotten affection
While we only care about our selves, when the planet needs compassion
The dire cries for help needs to be heard
Captivating MonsterThe monster sleeps on your bed,Captivating Monster2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Lying there and grinning like a mad man.
Whispers in my ears,
Things that frighten me.
He calls your name,
Dictates my dreams.
He is the Dreamwalker,
The everlong companion.
But never interferes.
He stays high above,
Watches from trees,
Watches as terror unfolds below.
He is the Shadowdancer,
Flitting from shadow to shadow.
Never in full view.
Always in the fringes of my vision,
He is the Northstar,
Guiding my dreams.
He is all that and more.
He is my guide and guardian,
Downfall and triumph.
But most of all,
He is my captor.
My prison guard.
The one who keeps me locked
But only until I wake up.
Where he lingers,
On your side of the bed.
My constant companion,
Even in my waking hours.
In the back of my mind.
My captivating monster.

Did you have fun building me up,
Just so you could break me
Back down to where I was to begin with?
Did you like seeing my expression when I saw you
Did you like hearing my heart break?
Did you like knowing that every time I saw your hand in hers
I about cried?
Did you know when you said it all...
That you were going to turn around and do this?
Did it really mean anything at all?
Or was it all just a lie?
A lie to build me up...
Just so you could break me back down...
Back down to ground zero...
I hope you're happy.
I really do.
I hope she's everything I'm not
I hope she's better than me.
Do you like knowing that you can turn what should be
A perfect night, into something that makes me cry?
Do you like knowing that you can do that?
That you can make me cry?
I don't know what you think...
I guess I never will...
Guess I'm a weak person.
I just hope you're happy..

The crimson salvation falls
Cascading from the most holy of all
Pooling beneath those feet
Laden with sin so we might be free
Streams fall from those hands
And healed throughout the lands
Taking up our burdens and chains
To receive the price of our blame
Drip, drip, drip
Eyes upward, arms stretched wide
Awaiting the fate of sin's heavy tide
Heaving His last mortal sigh
Heart and body broken, He dies
The Almighty Son gives His life
So that no other must have to die
To be placed in a tomb ceiled away
Only to be risen with light of Sunday
His blood now falls upon these robes
Covering my stains, fulfilling my hopes
Claiming my heart and saving my soul
That I may forever be with Him whole

In the night when a haunting voice is heard
And my ears shield to not hear
But the tremble is impossible to not hear
So like thunder it strikes my ears
And going back to see...
As I look and stare out to the night.
Running across my mind
Is a road that never seems to end
Darkness covering my feet
Not knowing where I go, where I run.
Then I stop, hoping not to fall
And I come cross a divided path.
The paths say, "Death" and "Hope"
Am I then stuck here
Because I've already passed each path
Not knowing where to go
For all that you know...

the first time you saw me, you inspected me.

then you rejected me, kicked out my knees and watched me fall
you blew up the bridge and it killed me enough, but you wanted more.

ProcessionThe procession wound its way through the narrow streets of the capital, over the cobbled streets it went lined with loyal subjects from all over the country alternatively dressed in black and white, just as the keys of an enormously long piano. The elaborate coffin was draped with ells upon ells of heavy silks, which made the bearers sweat viciously due to their added weight. So soaking wet from all the sincere tears the bystanders shed, they were forced to move slowly on the slippery ground so as not to drop their precious burden.Procession2 months ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
It happened that at this time there was a traveller in the city. Curiosity had drawn her to the procession and when the coffin finally came into view she asked the woman standing next to her who the person in the box might be.
“Oh dear, you don’t know? Well, it is the late Queen, of course.” One the bearers finally slipped but quickly recovered himself, preventing her majesty from tumbling to the ground sooner than expected.

Lucifer sits chained on his throne

in the hands of Lucifer himself
A traitor's blood is full of mischief
until it's cleansed of impurities
With actions so deluded
a little bit of ice injected in your soul

Cease the false hope from shining in vain

Burn the dying sun out
Darken the nightmarish sky
Let the ominous clouds melt
Lock away this cursed gift of sight

Shut out the world from you and I

Rip away my self-hatred
Bring back my innocence
Obliterate the life I created

Let the void consume
Paint my essence black
Devour what was once called truth

I profess it all unto you

He wiped the blood from the knife onto his pants and turned around, noticing a disturbance in the shadowy room. He adjusted his grip on Caroline and walked forward.
"Who's there?" He called into the darkness.
"Oh, dear. Have I been caught? I suppose I have." A voice came from the shadows, thickly accented Russian.
"Show yourself!" Wheatley snarled.
There was a moment of quiet laughter. Wheatley gripped Caroline even tighter, tensing for attack.
A female form emerged from the darkness. The young woman had a slight smile on her lips, hand on hip, wearing a much too short dress much like GLaDOS wore. However, instead of it being grey, this one's dress was pure black, except for on her sleeves and the short shorts under it. Those, as well as the hemline, were a deepest purple.

A language that everyone speaks.
But one that we are not able to hear.

Of which we are forced to confront our buried fears.
There are no more lessons that the agents of society can teach.
An infinite amount of words expressed through a solitary tear.
People dish out advice but never practise what they preach.
A language with the same traits as a hopeful prayer.
A society where people judge others, as they sit back in their self proclaimed seats.
They can no longer understand you and they aware of the darkness that draws near.
Many lives led but we are all accompanied by the same drumbeat
Maybe you don't want to be heard but people will forcefully lend an ear.
