He ignores you during the day
You look at him and he turns away
He's the reason why you end up this way
Struggling for something at night
Struggling with all your might
There's nothing in sight
A picture of him in your hands
Tonight like every night you'll love will stand
Now enter into your own fantasy land
Now begins the first touch
It's not much
So it's not enough
Your fingers are cold
Your pleasure is untold
Your need this more then gold
Your breathe increases and you quicken the pace
Your imagining his face
Right now, he's in this place
Right now he's on top of you
Doing what he should do

Luxurious lies dropped in
sparks from her lips
like the last cigarette of the day.
With fine slender nails
she unfurled rolls of red
like match striking breath to a flame.
She slithers her way
through a slicked inky gown
with eyes trimmed in frosting of gold.
Her rose pedal lips
bloomed above whitened fangs.
Rehearsing the lines she was told.
She spends her days spinning
within a glass box
reinventing new ways to perform.
Checking off names
of the public she mocks
While sliding their tongues across thorns.
The actress, the mask,
the palm of your hand
hearts opening now and again.
Her mind is a slate;

Cover my face in this gorgeous makeup
So that I may feel beautiful inside and out
She takes a tool with a beautiful color
And brushes it across her face
Just the slightest touch
And her face can be transformed
Into a beautiful work of art
Putting on this makeup
Has become a daily routine
And without it on
She feels as though
She is naked
It gives her a boost of self confidence
Without it on
She doesn't believe she is pretty
No matter what people say
She feels ugly without it
This makeup you see
Is a guardian unlike any other
It has become a mask
That hides her pain
And all of her insecurities
But in reality
Shadows From the SeaWhispers in the dark,Shadows From the Sea3 weeks ago in Free Verse More Like This
Calling softly as a lark.
Shadows linger like ripples in a pond,
As they slowly twist in this eternal bond,
Clutching onto me from across the sea.
Do I answer, oh whispers of the night,
Yelling shrilly with all my might?
Or shall I sing a song for you,
Soft and gentle as morning dew?
It matters not, for I have no tongue.
Intangible caresses cause my soul to serge,
As I attempt to quench this unquenchable urge.
I reach out, I leap, I fall, I sink;
My mouth is open, parched for want of drink.
But when I look up, it is the moon's face I see...
Calling out to me from across the sea...
Deadly SinsI swallow my pride every dayDeadly Sins1 year ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
as I step onto the street;
I hide my envy day and night,
ignore people of magnitude and might;
I drown the wrath that I carry within
and that blinds me like the light;
I suppress the sloth pursuing me,
solely crushing my ambitions and life;
I flee the greed that is raining down,
washing away my last traits of humanity;
I bury the gluttony deep away,
that was born in a need of balm;
and lastly I avert my eyes
from the lust I feel when I cross her eyes.

She told this story one day while she did beadwork and a few of her grandchildren played nearby. She remembered her own grandmother, the one who raised her as a little girl. She talked about a time many years ago, the last time she saw her grandmother.
"My grandmother lived on a place where she had a barn and grain holders and chickens and horses. She used to let me help her take care of the chickens. The horses roamed out to pasture, coming in sometimes for hay she always had ready for them. She and I lived there together. My older cousin, a young man then, stayed w
Music is my thingMusic is my thing10 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Music is a free and powerful thing.
It is an expression.
Something that speaks for itself,
even when there is no vocals.
It can send a message, happy, mad, sad.
But for me, music is revealing.
It helps me deal with things,
my emotions are let out through it.
In ways it's better than talking to someone.
It is a non-violent, peaceful way out.
It makes me a happier, better person.
Music is my thing.
I Have NeverI Have Never1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have never quite forgiven myself
I have never felt like I deserve better
I have never felt so depressed
And I guess I have never felt love
I have never had a smaller hope
I have never had so much faith
I have never cried so many times
And I guess I have never felt so lost
I have never ever been so thoughtful
I have never in my dreams grinded so wide
I have never lost my faith in you
But I guess, that's why it hurts

I can't see you.
Can you see me?
It's all dark here
with just you and me.
There is blood on the walls
and in my hair.
I cannot find you anywhere.
This place it's all dark and cold,
but my love is strong and bold.
Will this be our final hour,
just laying here?
I see the faint trace of hope
then it fades.
I thought I was seeing things.
"I love you my dear" you say faintly to me.
All I can see is darkness and red all to my side...
But as quickly as I was there
I soon was gone.
Now on my right,
is red roses glore.
I look at my sleves,
all covered in white and blood.
I see the man,
the man in black.
But soon as I see him,

Such envy construed from a dead, lifeless thing!
One would think I had taken too much of wine
Yet here I still lie, overcome with this dream
When the sensuous dawn and the morning are mine
I curse the sweet cloth that extends his form
So dark, yet inviting in its fibers of night
If the heart is the eyes, then his heart beats on
For his hand is my scepter and his being my sight
Such violence! Such envy! Are mortals so daft?
If a rose stabs itself on the thorns of deceit
I scream out my words, but you only will laugh
At the warring so bloody, yet blindingly sweet
If I lay me down tightly and rightly to sleep

She was hungry
She was but she was hungry for something else
She was hungry for someone she hated
I'm hungry, may I eat you?
She was hungry, yes, but she had some manners
First, she sought her enemy and they got into brawl
No more than the first minute was it over
I've always wanted revenge, now I'm hungry
As she slaughter her kill for consumption, she started to disembowel
Her victim screamed, dying a painfully gruesome death
After disemboweling, she had quite expected for her kill to have been dead
The more the pain and suffering, the better you'll taste
Still wanting her dinner to silence, she moved on to deboning

The line extended down the stairs, past the gates, and so far around the block that museum receptionists put up velvet rope dividers to twist the queue. They looked worn but not uncontent. It was worse two weeks ago when the exhibit was first announced. The crowds subdued them into complacent servicers while the ordeal hardened them into guest-desk Spartans. They were merely grateful now.
Newspapers passed between waiting strangers. Headlines read "All of Britain on Pilgrimage!" or "England's Greatest Treasures Unveiled!" Great Russell Street was littered with the spent pages. The pavement itself seemed to groan at the unwanted attention whi

Something wasn't right about her.
I narrowed my eyes at the girl at the door. "What's your name?" I pretended to be happy at the prospect of a new neighbor. The girl smiled happily, swinging back and forth. She appeared to be pretty energetic.
"My name is Cassie, nice to meet you." She put her hand out with a smile on her face. I hesitantly reached out, my hand clammy and shaky. No doubt I was in shock right now. My brother was gone and now I was next. Of course I was in shock. After what seemed like minutes, I grabbed her hand and shook it. I took my hand away, my breath was jittery.
"What's wrong?" Cassie asked.
"Nothing. Family issues.

I took it upon myself to love and care for you
While your pain is unbearable, my love remains true
I sold my soul to become your shining light
I made my resolve to stand up and fight
As I heard the sounds of the music you play
I thought that my heart would never go astray
Just as I thought things were coming along
I'd never realize that fate would prove me wrong
As the blessings I gave turned out to be a curse
I would fear that things will only get much worse
All traces of what makes me human have been lost
My love for you would later be the cost
As things get worse for I'm about to see
A person whom I called a friend betrayed me

I've been everywhere
I've seen everything
I don't want to see it again.
Bad things happened.
As they should,
but you see
these things didn't make me feel good.
They were like thousands of knives,
poking at my skin
Wanting desperately to break in.
I have taken him away,
His life and heavenly soul.
Would it matter
If I didn't regret a thing?
I'd be a murderer and a thief
Since the day I was born
Sprouting was the ground knotted and twisted
My limbs creak with pain
My heart beats with anger
Of these things I've done
Because darling, as you can see
I am not real
I never want to be
I'd regret the moments that I
