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?

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,
Walk to the car,
Sit down on the moth-eaten,

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.

Young, and I am free
Held down by no one other than me
Gentle in my rhyme
But wild to this beat; this chime
Like those before, I think
My words fall out of sync
I am intelligent and I am strong
Seen by some through the throng
Others cast a gazing eye
Just as I when they pass by
I am more than I appear
But as sight does; this is unclear
My vail is sheer, at least to those
Who chose to close their eyes
And read through my subtlies
Therefor I am me

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.

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

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.

Et je l'ai regretté, et je m'en suis voulu.
Tu étais là, toujours, tu es celle qu'il fallait.
Est-ce que par hasard mon coeur ne voyait plus ?
Hélas il est trop tard, tu es déjà partie,
Avec toi disparaît un morceau de moi-même.
Il a fallu tout ça pour savoir que ma vie
Serait si vide sans deux simples mots : je t'aime.
Voici que tu es là, radiante en un soleil
Au devant de mes yeux qui enfin se réveillent.
M'acceptes-tu encore, es-tu mon avenir ?
O joie inégalable, tu dis oui d'un sourire.
Unique instant magique, tu as stoppé le temps
Rien que cette seconde suffit à mon bonheur.
Il n'y a plus que nous, il n'y a plus de peur,
Reste avec moi, amour, vivons l'instant présent.

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
TemptationHer wide green eyes stared back at me- a mere inch away from my face. I could feel the pull-longing at the back of my throat. The sharp pinch as my fangs slid forward to razor sharp points. I felt her shudder as my eyes grew to pinpoints. We both had known the risk of our relationship. She had been warned.Temptation4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I thought I could restrain myself-but I couldn't. I could see the blood rising to her cheeks. Staining them a pink as bright as the morning sunrise. Could feel the steady thump of her heart like the beating of a drum. Could hear the light beating of her pulse- like a symphony of its own kind. I tried to talk myself out of it as I raised her wrist to my mouth. My fangs seemed to have a mind of their own as they snaked out and sunk into her vein.
Her eyes glazed over and her breathing became shallow as the poison slowly spread throughout her system. I should stop, I thought to myself, you promised that you wouldn't do it again. Oh, but the blood tasted so good: it was a m

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.

Emptiness surrounds my lonesome heart
Smothering the life from me.
This void runs deep throughout my soul
Wishing to envelope all emotion.
I tear away, beginning to run,
hoping to free my mind from these confines.
Yet, every step I take, I stumble, and fall.
With every once of my strength, I try to move on,
But the implausible senerio keeps running through my mind
Making it impossible to keep forward.
So here I am
stuck in the darkness of a shattered heart once agian,
Unable to break loose from these chains,
As the emptiness envelopes me a second time.

Annyi szabad, vidám nap után.
Gondolom, most vége lesz a nyárnak,
Hiába csüngök gazdámnak karján.
Pihés, arany szárnyaim rendezem,
És várok arra, hogy megérintsenek,
S ha így van, csodás dalom elkezdem,
Mert komor óráim most nincsenek.
Vajon miért fordulnak felém,
Kik eddig sohasem tették?
Miért szórnak magot elém,
Kik ezelőtt folyton elvették?
És ím, hát ketrecbe zártak,
De boldogan telnek a fényes napok.
Új ablaka nyílt meg a világnak,
És lehetek rab, mégis szabad vagyok.

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....

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.

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 way seagulls gather in shopping strips
next to fast food joints
or hover and flap in masses
on the scrapheaps of garbage scows

I thought you could've known
How much I loved you and
How much I cared for you
And thought you returned my affections
I never could've seen
The way you were deceiving me
Casting me for the fool
In your sick little play of twisted lies
I wish I could've known
That you were never going to love me
Or hold my heart and treasure it
Rather than throw it away and break it
I probably could've predicted
The heartbreak you'd put me through
When I first saw your too-perfect face
God, I wish I could let it go
How much you hurt me before
But I can't expect myself to
Not after you broke me
Tore down my dreams of me and you
Stole my heart only to hold it hostage before killing it
And then taking my hopes and shattering them
So all that was left of me
Were broken dreams
And bitter love
I wish I could scream at you right now
How much I hate you
And how much I want you to leave my memories
But you won't ever leave my mind
Because you're always right there
Reminding me of everything I lost
