SodomUnderneath the vast sky,Sodom3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
No one thought He was looking.
It was just so easy to turn away.
Truth is, the narrow road just looks too thin.
Even though He was so merciful,
Doesn't mean you chose to follow.
Sodom, where did you go wrong?
Traded life for momentary pleasures,
Allowed death to consume you,
The taste of sin too sweet on your bitter tongue.
Everything welcomed if it wasn't of God.
Satisfied your lustful heart with what He hates.
Oh, Sodom, how long did He wait
For you to come back to Him?
Angels led the righteous out by hand;
Mere ashes were left in their tracks.
Every cry against you was surely heard.
Remind me of your last fleeting thoughts,
If the sulfur burned your skin.
Can we escape Sodom?
Are we far enough away?
Depressioni thought you would never leave me beDepression5 years ago in Emotional More Like This
you tore my soul apart
i went to sleep with tears in my eyes
and wake up crying
i endured until i was empty
without even a soul to gaze upon
for in the mirror i saw nothing
nothing but a stranger staring back at me
for years i parted ways with this world
the family were an insufferable entity
and the friends had gone but not forgotten
I still can't forget their betrayal
Was it their fault i had this black cloud over me?
I'd lay awake at night, confused
laying awake, wondering why i ever listened
wondering how i would ever put things right
i had parted my ways for years
years you stole from my life and my love
my dark songs my only comfort
the only ones who could understand
as i tried to remember who i was before
but i was changed forever
and from the darkness the raven flew
I flew away
yet still you haunt me
forever perhaps in my memory
the reminiscents of sorrow and regret
but my spirit is strong
stronger than i realised to conquer you
and when i

The world is falling apart today,
somebody's dropped the bomb.
Fire is raining from the sky,
and the Devil's knocking at our front door.
Armies parade the streets today,
People drop like flies.
Gunshots are heard outside the house
and a light fills the sky above the city.
The aftermath has devastated,
Not a soul was left alive.
The culprit gives a toothy smile,
And puts his big red button back in his pocket.

Loss.... is it simply a pity part of life?
Can I keep you, who I love just in my mind?
Will you then stay with me?... till my eyes see your smile, and pretty face again?
I will miss your heart and soul. It's so pure and white, thou you might not see.
I'll always be here, in the memories of your life, being ready to catch you, if you let me.
All your friends, we'll be here. You'll see us again, when the time is right.
If not that promise will be kept, then just close those dreaming eyes of yours..... and think of us.
We are still here, in each others lighting memories. All we have to do, is to remember.
Please remember us...
Please.. remember me.

She had been kneeling in the gardens tending to the flowers and the weeds and dirt that lay there. He stopped his horse a few feet away to properly look at her.
She had glanced upwards when she sensed someone was looking at her. She gave a short glance at him standing there and immediately turned her head back to the garden in front of her.
Good. That was good that she wouldn't meet his eyes. A good and virtuous girl didn't meet the eyes of any man unless there was a blood relation or a marriage between them.
Ivan slid off of his horse and started towards her. When she realized that he was behind her she turned slightly so that he knew he had her attention however she remained kneeling and her head bowed.
"Is your father home?" Ivan asked.
The girl nodded, never lifting her head.
"What should I do with my horse?" he asked her.
Wordlessly and head still bowed she stood and slightly held out her hand. Her

It's slowly erasing our identities.
Could you find your heart buried in needles?
Lost in the woods, Rivers flow, minds blend
Can't help yourself...

I wish I was a little stronger.

Hiding under your bed,
In hopes to be fed.
My claws they are long,
And my teeth are so sharp,
While my eyes are like diamonds,
And black is my heart.
Your mother says that I am not real,
That I'm just in your head!
And could never be true,
But now she's dead!
And I hide,
For just the right time,
So clever, so snide!
I sit in the closet,
And dream of the day,
When you no longer fear me or
What could happen today.
And when you open the door,
As I rise,
And ask if you really want to die.
I can't help myself
I do try
But I'm just so hungry inside,
Don't ask me why.
I do love the taste,
And simply the smell,
Of tender young flesh ripped
All to hell.
Your screams and your cries
Give me such delight,
As you struggle and squirm
To live tonight.
I beg for more
Since your death is sweet.
I brush your hair so gently
And kiss your forehead,
Thankful for my stay.
I gobble you up,
And I slurp,
Until all that's lef

Mersz-e, ha kioldom fehér szárnyaim,
Vérünktől vöröslik a hófehér tájék;
Kacagva fagyunk meg e boldog órán még,
Vagy csillagokkal borítod életem?
Vagy inkább bőrömbe rajzolsz
Perzselve pusztító álmokat?
Holdtól pislákoló tájon,
Hol zizegve szökkennek az árnyak,
Énekelsz-e nekem? Velem?
Míg az árnyak ránk találnak?
Persze, hiszen ezért élünk,
Akkor jó, ha forr a vérünk,
És sikolyunktól hangos a táj.
Csobbanok a hűs patakban,
Szelíd vagyok vad szavakban,
És így sohasem fagy meg a nyár.
Kedves, kerge lepke, kergetni mersz-e?
Mersz-e, ha szívem adom cserébe,

I see in your glass eyes
And they fascinate me
I've fallen into
The rabbits hole
And this twisted logic
Makes no sense at all...
I try to open the door
To a new world
But I dont have the key
So the knob wont turn
Hey little Alice
I see in your red eyes
Pieces of broken dreams
And they sadden me...
MarionetteLying on the cold, hard floorMarionette5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Waiting for you to pull my strings
Emotionless eyes bore into the back of your head
I'm just a damaged marionette
Nothing without my puppeteer
No freedom, no will
Just let me fade into the darkness
The heavy rain hits the windows
My strings are pulled making me face the front
I don't want this
I don't wish to dance
Yet when you pick up my strings
I become a slave
Forced to perform
The performance is finished
Lifted into the windowsill
You let go of my string and I fall
Can't stand on my own
Helpless, nothing without you
Must I live this life as a servant?
When will I be free?
That time comes again
I am lifted onto the stage
But this time is different
My strings become tangled
I am pulled left and right as you try untangling them
But the strings won't untangle
It's all over
I'm thrown to the ground
My strings are cut as I lie there
No longer a servant
Just a useless puppet
What I knowSometimes I'm a songwriter,What I know5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Haven't you heard?
But how does it feel to write a masterpiece
And forget every single word?
And you break a string, and you drop a pick,
And your fingers bleed, and it's running thick.
And I don't know what I know,
Or why I play guitar,
I'll never make your heart glow,
And I'll never go far.
I don't know what I know,
But I still play guitar...
Sometimes I'm a musician,
Don't you feel the same?
But how does it feel when you trip on stage,
And all your songs are lame?
And you drop the beat and lose your place,
And you can see it on everyone's face,
Sometimes I'm a performer,
So you're not alone.
But how does it feel when the power's out,
And everyone goes home?
Now you're out of the job and out of cash,
And you know your food isn't gonna last
Sometimes I'm an optimist,
Isn't that a surprise?
And how does it feel when you walk on stage,
And see then dancing before your eyes?
And the people are great, and the pay is high,

Where all I do is think endless thoughts
For night after night, sunrise to sunset
The absence of emotion often turns into angst
Hopelessness fills my mind and takes over
Or perhaps, that is called despair
My mind seems to wander for hours aimlessly
Without a clue of where to begin or end
I sit alone, wondering where everyone has gone
I look in the mirror, wondering what has come of me
I'm a stranger in my eyes, turning into a beast,
A monster lurking in the shadows of the night.
Unable to sleep...
Unable to dream.

tugging the shore from beneath my feet, of
rowing out to sea in winter with empty nets
till spring, of catching every breath
in crystals on the same forgotten docks,
Where gravity knots my tendons into rope,
my teeth into chalk and ash, and my eyes
into searchlights scanning the horizon
for the first ship that leads to you.
ParanoiaMy bright and wonderful paranoiaParanoia4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm alive because of it
While you lay on the cold steel bed
Clothed in nothing but a sheet
You porcelain skin paler than usual
You should have listened to me
I warned you he would harm you
Now I'm left alone in this sick twisted world
They tell me it's not my fault
That I could do nothing to stop it
However, I could
Don't they see that I could have stopped you
I could have tried harder
Instead of flinging, careless words your way
I didn't mean them
If only you had listened
You wouldn't be lying there
Bruises and cuts marring your perfect skin
I wouldn't be alone, left with this aching soul
They ask who
I can't tell them
For you never showed me
His face forever clouded by shadows
They listen to this poem
Thinking it's beautiful, sad, and tranquil
Unknowing to them that at the end
I'll be contemplating the best way to die
To be with you
Would you welcome me in my premature death?
Or will the heavens cast me aside?

A life with no worry, spending days in the sky
Yet this heart ~ they don't know
The song sang by the little black crow
My back shall always bleed
The wings that were taken from me
I did not know the right kind of words
I can not sing like the beautiful canary birds
Nothing but a forsaken tone-deaf crow
Black feathers replace what was once white as snow
Unable to fly with these cursed black wings
Hiding in the shadows
Quietly trying to sing
I ran out of time
My song has no rhyme
A throat scratched raw from their lies
A black bird that won't fly
'Till the day she stops trying
The day she curls up to die
Night after night
I fall deeper into this pool of darkness
It's impossible to take flight
With these stones tied to my wrists
Please, sing me a song my dearest little friend
I cannot just wait for the bitter end
I long to hear your lovely voice
You are my only hope~my very last choice
Fill me with your song
For I shall not last too lo

When the people look at me
They look at me like I am only a stone
I always alone
Despite the rain and the storm approached
I'm hoping to be accompanied
But everything goes out like fire
If the fire is my friend
That warmth is my power
But when the wind blows
The heat burn all my hope
A good friend is something so valuable
Can not be bought or sold
But I also need to realize
That he also has his own problems
It's the time to stop expecting the humans
Because every human has his own problems
It's not a wise thing to expect humans
Because in the end they always let me down

The pieces do not scratch you.
My tears are causing me to drown.
The water has not reached you.
You flash me a smile and turn to walk away.
I don't attempt to stop you.
You do not want to stay.
My love for you builds up inside,
Yet it has no place to go.
Your heart is already filled to the brim
With people I do not know.
You laugh with me one last time,
Before our parting day.
But then again you turn away,
You do not want to stay.

Begging to know
The secrets that possess you,
The thoughts behind your eyes
The locks to the happenings
Inside your mind.
But not daring to ask,
Out of fear.
Fear that you wouldn't say,
Or worse, that
You would blame
All this heartbreak on me.
Knowing in my heart
I am to blame
For this bedraggled version
Of the person you used to be.
And those beautiful eyes,
Cocoa- colored eyes,
Stare blankly ahead
Through the cracked windshield
Which is all I can offer,
Because its all I've ever had.
I can feel it,
Slowly, surely seeping away.
The emotion, the feeling
The soul in your body,
And all I have now
Is a ghost, going by your name
The name you never preferred,
The name you now obligatorily
And this ghost
Commands her fingers
To close around
A cup of cold, bitter coffee
From the convenient store
That sells lifestyles on the side.
She tells herself
Leave the store,

you had a broken heart
you gave yourself away
and they ripped you all apart
Somebody told me
you've gone and lost your smile
which makes sense; you haven't used it
in a very long while
Somebody told me
I'd find you sitting here
let me settle down with you
and lend me both your ears
Somebody told me
you wish that you could die
there are reasons that you shouldn't
let me tell you why
There are people on this earth
who if you passed, would wither
you are more loved than you think
even if not by her
You will fall in love so many
times as you grow older
before you find the one person
you will stay with forever
That person you end up with
will love you for who you are
about their feelings for you, you
will never have to wonder
So don't let yourself fall quite yet
into an endless despair
better that you tried for love and failed
than if you'd never
Somebody told me
they found your missing smile
why don't you go put it on
and wear it for awhile
