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?

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.
BlackShe fell from the skyBlack4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In a ball of arctic fire.
Crashed to the ground
Yet made not a sound.
No pain was felt,
Though she was broke' and bled.
The sky raged with colors
While black enveloped her whole.
Did sun ever rise
To see such a fate?
The white had come black,
And the gown a torn sack.
Flawless the face
And white were the wings.
But now had come scratched
And now had come dark.
Feathers so soft
Now black with her blood.
Purity of feature
Forever torn away.
Cold is her heart
Which once flowed only warmth.
And wet are the eyes
That once never cried.

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

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...
Watched me crumble,
I wish I was a little stronger.
HS: Together Even In DeathThe meteor began to leave their sight. All too fast the universe around them was becoming dark, with no more stars to light the way. Hope was leaving them fast, on a one way track to the scratched session. Aradia looked to Sollux, his dual eyes once red and blue now black and white.

They were a radically dying species, soon to be extinct. Who would recall their moments of glory in the time that was now lost to all but few? Everything was so unsure.
But the both of them felt something strong as they were floating in the nothingness, watching as their pushed effort shot through the rifts of time and space. There was a feeling that could not be ignored flowing through their low blooded veins.
He came close to her, arms wide and tears forming in his hollow eyes. Her smile was the most beautiful, radiant thing he'd ever witnessed in his short life. Surely she was not worth such ugly tears, but nothing seemed to matter now.

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,

Lady Earth....After taking a hot shower of sunshine in the summer,Lady Earth....4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She will blow-dry her leafy locks with cool autumn breeze,
And settle in a frosty bed to softly snooze
Under a crisp, snowy blanket throughout the winter,
Until the first ray of the golden spring dawn shall awake her.
Then, she will push away the blanket and rise up
To put on a pretty floral dress and some butterfly bows,
And begin her year-long day anew....

If you are who you are;
Act on what you feel,
And you will go far
Live for yourself,
And do for yourself
Do not seek the approval

And share it with others;
Openness that makes the world blush

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.

perceptive and wise and with a sense of time and season.
They know how emotional humans get
when Christmas comes.
What suckers they are for feeding the birds,
an act of love when they can give no love to others
The crows settle in apartment block parking lots
the way seagulls gather in shopping strips
next to fast food joints
or hover and flap in masses
on the scrapheaps of garbage scows
sent from the city
with the dregs of living

Grass swaying in the breeze

Cold coming forth
The silhouettes of trees

That never even existed then
People may see
Another form of me
I shall never stay
For I must go away

stare down at this feeble being
pools of stars reflect enchanted marbles
of pure light and diamond dust,
piercing through the best of me
impossibly perfect pieces dance,
casting distant skies.
I want to lick the pieces
and fall into the stars,
burn hot and fade away
I Don't Want to Expect from Humans Any LongerI Don't Want to Expect from Humans Any Longer2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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

My lady who cries the night away
dost thou not know another way?
Be ye still afraid of thy dream
'Tis varied by the Dream.
Ye be not a life so free,
my maiden my life of thee be me.
Lest beknownst thy drowning fear
that hangs before her all the year.
Besought the light that now grows dim,
hope for once the love of him.
Thy cherish thy love be it not true
like the tears she shed twinkling blue.
Lest thy heart burdened be
lest she glimpse eternity.
My lady who cries the night away
dost thou not know another way?
O' ye be a wakeful woe
glimpse of life, love bestow.
O'er thy morning dove doesth not sing?
My lady, she cries for her fallen king.

Bear . Wolf, eagle. Always these beasts could turn the hunter into prey. Hurron knew this, it was a knowledge his father taught him well on his first bleeding of the snow.
Up in the cold you keep these three rulers in mind at all times, especially at the winters end, for wolf is still rabid with winters hunger. Bear awakens from its slumber sharing the same thought as the wolf, and northern eagles, they are always a threat. In time, they learned to wound their prey and watch it bleed to death. Yes, three ruled the mountains, but on the day of bleeding of the snow, they were all prey
Hurron pretended to be sleeping, while he watched his son standing guard by the fire. Boy has grown strong, stronger than the old wives of the village have foreseen. However, that was not surprising. Hurron never looked kindly on the self-proclaimed prophets. Fate is what one makes of it, and his

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.

Blue tail, there, he precisely
Brings his point of beak, and again,
Again, piercing down; now,
Meat the color of old mustard shows,
And the big head tilts, the crest
Lays flat, the slick throat shuttles.
His bright eyes dart quickly about.
If he had hands he'd rub his belly.

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?

you lose the need for sound.
A flight of words that bear no chirp
are none the less profound.
They don't perch on a pitch.
They don't possess the need .
They fly until you've seen their song,
then silently recede.
No one could find more freedom than
the freedom granted flight.
No one can see more beauty than in
words passed left to right.

Never completely vanquished, the beast lurks in the shadows, feasting on my exhaustion, waiting for its opportune moment to drag me into the depths of its darkness, where I am my true enemy.
What seems the easiest solution is to fight off this creature with a blade, but in the end, I only hurt myself.

Ott a lelkem gyönge fája.
Ott a szellem, ott a holdfény,
Minden ott van, mi az enyém.
Szemembe nézz, ne a számra,
Ott jön ki a vészek ára,
Ott folyik ki, onnan buggyan,
Minden, mi a szíven loccsan.
Szemembe nézz, ne a számra!
Zöld patakom kis folyása
Ellepi a hamisat,
Szól mindig csak igazat.
