"She isn't her"
They whisper like she doesn't have a clue.
Instantly her lips are like glue; a helpless mound.
Like wine her tears flow, yet only making the slightest sound.
When these buckling knees collide with the ground-
Who would have watched her drown?
In DeathIn Death1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
When you die,
how do you want to
reach that destination?
Will you arrive there
having served your purpose,
for some kind of awesome cause?
Will you go down in history with shining
honor and glory?
Or will you end it,
halfway through your story?
Will you spend your time,
serving and dying for your country?
Or frowned upon while you're dead,
because you created chaos for it instead?
The way I want to die
is by doing something worthwhile.
And that little something
is serving as Jesus Christ's child.
(and being a bartender or sniper).

when all with-in the surrounding homes,
were fast asleep.
They hold secrets-
each of them-
for what they do is
in it's self-
With-in her heart-
secret yearnings betray each other-
one drawing her deeper-
the other holding her back.
She looks into his eyes-
and knows that,
has his own secrets-
not ready to be shared.

Lighting the darkness
Out of the light and into the realism,
Vocalizing the way this wind whispers against these lips
Igniting the energy resting idle in nimble finger tips
Netting is so simplistic
Given the right, and precise tools, it may mold the perfect history
History, how much the past compensates with and for
In time, the present is un-wrapped and,
Mailed to a time where we're all-
Marked and branded like a select breed of cattle. .
Annexed and secluded,
Knitting wool memories so that love
Elapses into something warm and fuzzy!
Stitches look so ugly, when compared to things crocheted.
Mild, timid, sensitive,
You have shown all these attributes to the little child inside of me.
Here, in this room, everything is utterly emptied.
Every poem and story of purgatory
Agony, so silent, I can feel the skeleton within this body-

To lie away...
To lose your blood.
To feel the pain,
above the veil.
To understand the bloody lie...
To feel the love,
so sweet, so deep.
And when its over.
I need to die.
And then i rise.
Above the fools,
Who trust the god.
And have those childish hopes.
And wave to them,
So they can see.
My Best Friend, My Love: A PoemMy Best Friend, My Love: A Poem1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Who better to have my heart
than the one who knows me best?
We both have had romances and flings
but you are better than all the rest.
This love was the forbidden fruit
but we bit into it like Adam & Eve.
But now we're like Eros & Psyche.
From us, Eden has been conceived.
Funny how when we were kids,
we avoided each other's kiss.
Now every touch from your lips
gives me moments of sweet bliss.
We've shared our minds and souls before
now we include the form.
Our trinities complete, together entwined
the burning fire within keeps us warm
I know we will have downs and spats.
We may split and have many falls.
But like magnets, we will come right back.
Our force will break many walls.
My best friend, my love
We are the Lover and the Beloved.
What we have is an eternal divine gift
blessed by Heaven above.

and though my head may droop
amidst bleak winter's ice and snow
my thorns be blunted
and my leaves begin to stoop
there is no place I'd rather go
no one shall pass me

you rest now, you are free
and while the others weep
I stand on guard for thee.
Be patient in your prayersGod sometimes answers prayers right away, which is instantly gratifying. However, sometimes it takes a little work on your end for God to answer a prayer. Matthew 15:22-28 illustrates this quite well. A woman from Canaan came to Jesus, wanting Him to heal her daughter, who was vexed by a devil. Jesus ignored her. She then went to the disciples, who got annoyed by her (they told Jesus to send her away). She persisted, crying out to Jesus.Be patient in your prayers3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
"Lord, help me!"
He then insulted her saying;
"It is not meet to take the children's bread and cast it to dogs" (the children being the children of Israel, the dogs being the Canaanites).
She didn't take offense to it, she mearly said;
"Truth, Lord: yet dogs eat the crumbs of their master's table"
Jesus was impressed by her faith;
"O woman, great is thy faith: be unto thee even as thou wilt"
Her daughter was healed.
Jesus tested the woman's faith, and rewarded her for being persistent in her plea.
He does that still today. If you need healing in your b

I look up at the full moon
It glares back balefully
It's cold hypnotic gaze
Holds me in its thrall
Unable to look away
Unable to disobey
It commands me once again
I throw back my head and howl
Joining the other "Children of the Night"
I writhe in the agony of my change
Eyes on fire
My face, so dire
I run, the pack runs with me
Muscles rejoice to sing
The hunt is on
I smell the fear
I see wide eyes
I taste the blood
I tear the flesh
The moon sinks low
And out of sight
Its spell is lifted off me
The sweetness of blood
Now makes me wretch
My cloak departs
Leaves me naked
I live in a town called Owl CityI live in a town called Owl City.I live in a town called Owl City1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
A city made of Gold, inhabited by Angels.
A place where the sky is beautiful morning, noon, and night.
The Alligator Skies turn gracefully into the Vanilla Twilight.
Every night is rewarded with a spectacular Meteor Shower,
while Fireflies and Bees dance among the Plant Life.
Every day is a Good Time and nothing could Take it All Away.
Wondrous attractions speckle Owl City.
Go for a ride in a Hot Air Balloon, and you won't regret it.
Or perhaps stay awhile at the Umbrella Beach.
While the Yacht Club perform on the seas.
This town is nothing like the Real World and I never want to leave.
You have a chance to come too, and visit this lovely town.
Here's Hope that you will arrive soon.
If you cant get to Owl City, though, don't give up.
Because here we have a saying.
"Dreams Don't turn to Dust."

My, what hope lies
in the half empty glass,
trembling by tremor and leer.
At such a long road's end,
does it rise and shatter.
What understanding have you,
of fear, of pestilence,
other than the existence of self.
Imposed, the creation
to be eventually bled out.
Filthy, the very cause
by which the water rises,
boiling with blisters
in the overwhelming sin
of the ever beating sun above.
Freedom, to the acrostic asininity
now found laughing atop the grave...
the grave of past gone by,
decaying with every bite
of a gluttonous sloth with an ancient cause.
That to my eyes, the mass hysteria,
borderline loss of sanity from the commonalty.
Have I lost track or do my eyes deceive,
the horsemen's tracks are of disarray,
and I know not which one has come.
Now, the angels look onward,
gazing with hopeless eyes,
searching for faith in the fallen creation,
who now wither and crawl,
away as they fall, into the Abyss....
Declines, the signs of the end,
the near and far come and go,
as the war seeps t
