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.

Scared of school.

Sangheili Heritage Part 1Sangheili Heritage (Part 1)Sangheili Heritage Part 16 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Sangheili, a strong and noble race,
Masters of battle, on land and in space.
They were once a race unknown.
Though very mighty, they were alone.
Till the Prophets arrived, bringing war.
Their mighty weapons, hard to ignore.
Both races fought a mighty duel,
But losses were high, the fighting cruel.
This was a battle which couldnt be won.
A great new alliance had just begun.
The Sangheili established numerous legions,
Whose power was used to take many regions.
More holy relics they had to claim,
That was their most important aim.
The Covenant Empire continued to expand,
Aided by races from each conquered land.
The Sangheili became a great warrior class,
Leading other races, deployed en masse.
The prophet leaders continued to preach,
About the Great Journey the Covenant would reach.
But these claims, told by every minister,
Ignored a truth, far more sinister.
These truths would not be found,
Till the Covenant gained more ground.
A war would ha
We Are ForerunnerIn our riches you will find,We Are Forerunner5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The key to what we left behind,
Hidden deep within the dark,
A single final glowing spark,
Our perfect everlasting mark,
Buried safely on the Ark.
But first we had to end it all,
And death incarnate - had to stall,
So we stood there side by side,
To stop the unrelenting tide,
Holding back the endless Flood,
That sought to taste creations blood.
And so the rings we did ignite,
To burn it all and end the fight,
It purged the worlds and all their skies,
And brought about our own demise.
I'm sad I caused the decimation,
Of every species - every nation,
Yet I pray you stand our station,
Loyal guards to all-creation.
A Wretch Like MeWe may see eye to eye,A Wretch Like Me4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Or rather eye to shoulder,
I may not be too young,
But you will still be older,
The choices that I make,
Despite the consequences I face,
You might believe things change,
However, I remain the same.
The screeching claws that rip at my flesh,
Wear me down even at my best,
They're dragging me through a downwards hole,
Mimicking my cries as my heart grows old,
The scars are reminders that I remain unchanged,
I'm withering away in this endless game.
You understand this more than anyone else does,
Having witnessed the triumph of unattainable love,
Yet the faith that you pour into my soul,
Is so much more than I can convey,
Although you trust that things can change,
Haven't you noticed that I've remained the same?
The wails and moans that rise from the dark,
Are silent to the world as they only whisper to my heart,
Apart from you, I know no one can see,
My plea; I'm begging,
But I can't find freedom in disbelief.
So let me go, before love grows forgotten,
But heed my w

A traveler noticed a web in his camp.
And the tiny dridder filled with fright.
The night was cold with wind and rain.
Flashing lightning scared the tiny dridder,
that could fit in one of his hand.
The young man, with kindness in his eyes, did not refrain.
He sang her this song and held out his hand.
'Little dridder, little dridder, why are you here?
May I pick you up, if you don't lay eggs in my ear?
Little dridder, little dridder, let me warm you up.
I've made some soup and I'll pour you a big cup.
Little dridder, little dridder, let me hold you near.
And may my heart's warmth be sincere.
Little dridder, little dridder, there's no need to fret,
For there is no need to hold any sort of debt.
Little dridder, little dridder, I am no one to fear.
It's true the world is cruel, but there is kindness here.'
As trees gathered rings, time past.
A giant dridder stalked a trail.
But when she found her prey she could only gasp.
It was an old man with kindnes
A Schwarzenegger ChristmasA Schwarzenegger Christmas7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
in hopes that Saint Nicholas would soon be there.
When up on the rooftop, the patter of hooves
and a, "HO HO HO!" could be heard on the roof.
When down the chimney came Saint Nick himself
with toys for all children, in sick or in health.
As the presents were stowed and the stockings were stuffed
With candy, dolls, cars, sugar plums, and bits of fluff
Then a loud boom from behind, as the door slammed open wide
Santa turned around and who did he find?
His hair was jet black, his jacket was too
A pair of sunglasses, and crocodile skin boots.
From his boots to his shades he was covered with ammo
he wore the expression of a disgruntled Rambo.
As Santa considered diving for cover
Arnie pulled out a gun and screamed, "You are one UGLY MOTHA @#$%ER!"
The bullets came flying, in a shower of lead
Santa dove behind the couch, his mind filled w

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

Watch your body, limply rock

Smell your body, slowly rot

Feel your body, going numb

Think, fast, think, fast

Black, out, black, out

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

And my gaze is ever wavering,
Back and forth,
To the cell phone right beside me.
It's 2:17 in the morning,
And the urge suddenly washed over me,
Urging me to call you.
There's hardly a chance of you picking up,
Even at a reasonable hour,
Never mind this ungodly one.
I wish I could hate you.
You're a liar and deceiver.
You've poisoned my mind, and poisoned my heart,
And almost rendered me incapable to ever love again.
You've abandoned me when I needed you most
When I needed SOMEONE
For your own selfish desires.
I know you still love me, too.
That only makes it worse.
At least if you didn't, you'd have an excuse.
But you've put yourself above everyone else.
You lying, cheating, filthy dog.
Is it any wonder that I've built walls around myself,
When there are arrogant,
Despicable people like you in the world?
Any reason why it's so hard for me to trust again?
To love again?
I'm too good for you.

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...

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.
