Can you give a soul salvation?Can you give a soul salvation?3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
In the war with only night
In the shadows fearing light
One gives way to take respite
This the plea, he shall incite.
In the dark, he's lost in fright
Weary of the eternal plight
Singing that solemn lullaby,
Of the stars that have gone by.
Lost forever in the fight
From the danger and fright
Lacking will to neither live nor die
For them to strike he thus invites
Only a love from the days of old
Can stop the darkness taking hold
But his heart has grown so cold,
To decay, his body sold.
Who can offer him salvation?
Through the fear of annihilation?
Driven mad with isolation,
Can you save A souls temptation?
Who can off the love and light,
In the approaching dread of night?
In the coming of the swarm
Who can chase away the swarm?
From his death to his birth
Angels and demons war on earth
For whatever his soul is worth
Save this man from the markers words.

Starved of hope.
I'm just that cutter
Reaching for rope.
I'm just that dumb blonde
Reading all night.
I'm just that coward
Bleeding for a fright.
I'm just that child
I'm just that girl
With messy hair.
I'm just that burner
Wanting to be cool.
I'm just that geek
Scared of school.
I'm just that emo
Smiling with glee.
You're just another drone
But you'll never be me.

It's not a choice
It's not an option
If it was
Do you think anyone would pick it?
I mean, come on.
You'd totally choose to be an outcast
Hated and feared
Mistreated and scared
Not knowing how any single person might react
A friend might turn on you
A parent could kick you out
Your sibling could hate you
Any random person could beat you up
Just for being who you are
irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary
Unneeded and hurtful hate, fear, violence and pain caused by one person to another because of who they like and love

Watch your body, limply rock
Drip, drop, drip, drop
Smell your body, slowly rot
Tip, toe, tip, toe
One step over, the edge you go
Breathe, slow, Breathe, slow
This is your last breath you know
Twiddle, Dee, twiddle, dumb
Feel your body, going numb
Rap tap Tum, rap tap Tum
Your heart it beets, like a drum
Think, fast, think, fast
Insanity, has your heart, in grasp
Black, out, black, out
It's over now, without a doubt

The clock is ticking, ticking faster
Your body's gone, you're not your master
You're in a fog, to thick to think
Your mind's not gone it's on the brink
The ground it shakes beneath your feet
Your legs once strong, they look so weak
I know you'd love to see and stand
I know you'd love to be a man
But please lay down and watch the sky
Don't let it's beauty pass you by
To see you struggle tears me apart
I get this pain, it's in my heart
But I know you know all to well
This damn disease can go to hell

Somebody kill me please
My soul burns like this Disease
Sealed by my own deeds
A fate that I would welcome
With open arms
An end, an out
All I want is Silence
I cannot live without it
Yet the only way to attain it
Is to cease to live
Suicide isn't a cry for help, rather, a means to an end.

Wake me up in the middle of the night
With a text out of nowhere that says,
'Just letting you know I love you.'
I want someone...who would
Call me beautiful
Without even seeing me that day.
I want someone...who would call me
Just so I would say 'hello'
Because they just wanted to hear my voice.
I want someone who loves rain.
I want someone...who'd kiss my scars.
I want someone who'd tell me they need me
Every single day.
I want someone...to love me.
That's all I want in life...
I want to love and be loved.♥
I watch them watch youPeople look at you and have no ideaI watch them watch you3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The things you have seen, the hell
It's because you smile through it all
And they want the smile to be for them
I laugh as they try to get your attention
Stumbling over the lie they just invented
Hounding you from your car to the door
You politely smile, and offer warm thanks
They don't see it though how it hurts so
Never knowing their words destroy you
Words meant to flatter, defeat instead
It's not their fault, they don't know you
They don't know your heart is his alone
They don't know how he saved your life
They adore you from where they stand
But the you inside, hates to be adored
I can see it in your sad eyes, the disdain
These are not the men you want to see
And every second he is not here with you
You crumble, you stumble, you lose it
LackingLackingLacking4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I take a look back at my past
A life peppered with despair
Of dreams that'd never last
And wounds that won't repair
Bleeding cavities in my soul
Pouring out hope's last remains
Leaving only the blackened hole
Coated only in scars and stains
Too many things remain undone
Acheivements forever unchecked
Failures rotting under the sun
Past a mess, future is wrecked
That list of goals lies bare
Wilting and dying of the shame
Each day, so depressingly aware
And yet, it's only me to blame
It's those simple little things
Common to every single person
But not me, oh how it stings
Can only watch my sanity worsen
God I feel so pathetic and sad
Missing out because of how I look
Locked inside, I am going mad
With this agony, I'm ever stuck
Something basic like a first kiss
ever only a delusional thought
Another thing I'll have to miss
Nothing works the way it ought
Everyone else gets that moment
A feeling my mind can't perceive
Only filled with bitter resent
Of a give I shall never receive

Stenciled Smiles on Paper HeartsI don't like to feel this wayStenciled Smiles on Paper Hearts2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
There must be something I can say
Cause I hate just watching you
When I know the pain you're going through
You're not alone; I've been where you are
Contemplating where I'll place my next scar
Hiding razor kisses underneath long sleeves
It doesn't make it better; nothing is achieved
All you'll earn are the scars you've got and
The lesson learned is the lesson forgotten
You feel like no one's there, no one cares what you do
Let me put it to you straight: That is never true
I was shunned, pushed away many times before
Then I realized it was I who had closed the door
I took a chance and opened up to the people around me
Told them of my secrets, now their love surrounds me
You're not alone; I've been where you are
And I know that life sometimes seems so hard…
But believe me, from one person to another
To make a book better, you never destroy the cover…
You are worth it...

Cause it's hidden behind lock and key
I never let anyone inside
Won't let them wipe the tears I've cried

If they knew of all the scars I bear
They try to make me feel less worthless
But I know that I deserve this
For still having a beating heart
I'm trying not to fall apart
Just take me
Make me feel
Erase these lies
Tell me what's real
Hold me close
Hold me all night
Make me feel like
FarewellIt rusts, in the fall of December.Farewell3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Maybe it seized, the fire frigid without ember.
The hazel of your eyes,
No longer sparkle,
I found myself, alone, walking in the concrete pavement.
I don't need your hands, to hold mine
Leave me be, in this melancholic street,
Of where we once met and greet.
Morrow, end now,
Quietly cast upon my curtains,
the silent Lunar,
Left with a memory,
Of a morrow, great sorrow.
It rust, in the fall of December.
My love, you no longer are.
The MonsterYou'll find that the longer you look in the mirror, the more likely it is to break.The Monster4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Vein, conceited, self centered, nothing but a lie. You're nothing but a fake.
Fate favors the fearless. But you're the epitome of weak.
Behind your eyes and all the lies, your life looks pretty bleak.
You're elegantly broken meeting your demise.
Your soul is black and your smile's a disguise.
Sorry baby you can't love when you've never had a heart.
So where's the revenge when you're falling apart?
Where there's beauty in the breakdown, there's a crack in the reflection.
You've buried me and hated me time to pay for your transgression.
This time around, you've gone too far.
You want a battle? You've got a war.
The caged bird waiting to be set free, I shot the bird happily.
I stopped looking beneath my bed, the monster was inside of me.
The Betrayal of LoveCold as iceThe Betrayal of Love5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sweet as sin
Dark as night
Permanent as ink
The cold metal grates across my skin
Trickles of blood flow
I forget how to feel
Focus on your breathing
Focus on your life
Mine is slipping away
Can you grab it for me?
I have fallen
Can you put me back together again?
Would you, if i asked?
Or would you leave, just like everyone else
Would you be the first to make a difference?
Would you be the first to care?
I know what you would do
You would walk away from me
Let me fall
Leave me broken
Why am I surprised?
How could I let myself have so much trust in you?
How could I let my guard down this way?
I knew this would happen
Deep in my heart
But I didn't want to believe...........
My Art.To live truly means having the power,My Art.5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To be able to, at the flick of the wrist,
Create something that is nothing less than beautiful.
As if a deity has been guiding my hand.
Every tear I cry has a purpose, to inspire,
As it reflects another flaw that I have.
But with every mistake I've collected,
I created this perfect, graceful harmony.
I was able to grasp a radiance that is,
Unfathomable, unimaginable, and unreal.
And I can mold it into something my own.
I named it art.
I bled out my heart onto a piece of paper.
And the pain was reformed into magic.
Born into the inspiration that gave me the will,
To believe there's something worth living for.
And suddenly I could fly on broken wings.
I could let out the darkened monster, caged within me.
And my fleeting spirit is now set free.
My reflection in the mirror is no longer shattered.
I don't have to suffocate anymore,
Because I can breathe freely now.
One place where no one can chain me down.
Where no one needs to judge me...
