InsanityInsanity, it takes us all,
If its in us or on the walls
Insanity, some hate,
Others will take pride in that state
Insanity it will consume the world,
Insanity it makes you see colors and swirls
Insanity it never leaves,
Insanity it makes you see
See the world for what it is for,
You may see black and grey but there is more
It lets you feel love,
It lets you fly high above
It lets you believe,
Insanity... it lets you see.
I Miss itI miss it,I Miss it2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I miss the blood running down my arm
I miss the feeling
I miss the pain
The pain that never really hurt.
But most of all,
I miss the control I had,
How it allowed me to let go
Let go of everything in my entrapped mind.
I miss it.

If only you knew..
You bring me up,
You bring me down.
I can't help but smile when you're around.
You make me frown,
You make me smile.
I'd run miles to see you.
You make me laugh,
You make me cry.
I try to tell you the truth..
But I can't utter a sound.
Darkest NightSleep for another dayDarkest Night3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
waiting for the night to claim
feel the winds blow through my hair
tears that touch my skin
I have no name
I have no face
only the love that flows within
the sorrow that I embrace
Call to me when you are ready
come to me when the time is right
find me to release your sorrows
follow me to the darkest night
Through the shadows I see your beauty
the pain I bring that shakes you
the doors I open but cannot close
I cannot help you, I can only hope
But I give you my love
I give you my light
I give you my hand
through your darkest night
Give to me all your tears
release to me your greatest fears
give back to me your pain, your torment
hurt today, for a better tomorrow
I give you my love so you may see the sun
tears from the collective sadness
mine alone to bury
this is the burden I carry
Dragons BloodYou are an art journal,Dragons Blood2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
all scraps of paper and profound quotes
of those you say "I'll fucking know one day",
because you love to shock me
with even more profound profanities
and those watercolor fingers
you use to shut me up.
Gently. Always gently.
You leave me moon-eyed;
Dragons Blood still lingering
in the wake of your
heartbeats against mine.
Lying For FunI knew you were phony, I knew you were fake.Lying For Fun3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I just didn't want to be lonely, so I took all the lies I could take.
I let you play me,
Even though I didn't believe a word you'd say to me.
I watched your lies grow and tangle.
It was never a surprise; you were never an angel.
No matter how hard I'd try to pretend,
Deep down I knew, your lies would never end.
You lied to keep me around.
When I cried, your lies continued to pour down.
Even though its now over,
I'm still learning how to run.
I keep looking back over my shoulder,
And now you're just lying for fun.
Is this what we can feel?Sometimes you just wishIs this what we can feel?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The pain could be locked away
Hidden in a black chest
Where you can't reach it
Suffering is what gets us down
Yet you cry and cannot shed tears
Otherwise you would drown in them
Once you saw an Angel
His wings yet so strong
He could protect thee
Silently watching over
Once this Angel fell
No protection, you are alone
Wings black and broken
Who would save the Angel?
Have you ever felt the rage
Fill your heart, lead thoughts
Revenge you want, nothing more
For the wounds you have got
Yet they will deny your anger
Yet they tell you to calm down
So you turn back, swallow your hate
Where it burns your lungs, your heart
Once you were crying outloud
As people rejected and ignored
Of course you were so hurt
Crying was the only solution
Yet you are told not to cry
It makes you look such a whiner
Emos and sad people aren't needed
That's what they say
You were jealous at times
When someone got a better grades
Or told how nice and easy life is
At least to the
Mistakes.When I lookMistakes.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Upon the pain
Of my past,
I feel so sad
And so guilty
But at the same time
I feel happy.
Because those mistakes
Made me who I am
They let me know the
People I know now.
Showed me what was right
And what was wrong.
My mistakes still haunt me
But if I had the option
To go back
And make them never happen,
Because I am happy
With what I have done.
The good and the bad.
Loved you once, loved you 'tilLoved you once,Loved you once, loved you 'til3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Loved you 'till,
You broke my heart,
And made it still.
Stayed up late,
Crying and torn,
The painfull thoughts,
I had to mourn.
Your love gone,
My soul will fade,
With the mess you made.
Dreams Of Benumbing And ComfortShe's pining away, pining awayDreams Of Benumbing And Comfort2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She is fading
Into the black and white,
Into her mind's decay.
Millions of reflections have passed over,
Each with an unfamiliar luminosity
Each making her more confused about her individuality
And alienating her further.
She is searching for any source of pleasure.
Whether it comes from Hades's grip
Or rolls off her tongue.
She needs something to connect her, something to reassure.
Before it smoothes out her narcissism
And destroys her Ego and Id,
Before she becomes aware of Man
And gains precious cynicism.
She needs to open her Third Eye,
And make Self withdraw from Her Mandana curtain.
She needs something to simulate emotions
And to keep her life from going awry.
Before she pines away Before she pines away
