UnworthyMommy found love when she danced in the crowdUnworthy2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Staring into Daddy's eyes
My dearest sister found her fantasy
Healing his fatal lost cries.
Cured by the aching of each others hearts
Soothed by their troublesome minds
Drenched in the futures they never dared have
Caught in the things left behind.
I am not worthy of all that they own
I am not all that you see
I am not healed by the widespread disease
I am not simply set free.
Watch as my skin starts to fade into dust
See as the stars turn to grey
One deadly thought cannot heal every wound...
After it killed me today...
Gentle CannibalWithout a breeze to soothe my body,Gentle Cannibal1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
or salvage a mind
from the dripping tide of cicadas,
the midnight of summer begins to
lift its mantle from where you crouch,
and comes to honor me.
My gentle cannibal,
with eyes of hemorrhaging iris,
the jaundice of your nakedness,
translucent from the moon rings
your lips pulled as if in pain.
The fever of your touch traces
every rung of dappled trellis
from the faux shadings of a lunar day.
Give me my sweet plunder of ripe figs
as you bend me like a bow that will snap,
or have you already bitten me to the bone.

gazing upon you bare before me
and in the curves of your body i can see my future unraveling
every pore in your skin a new adventure
every other centimeter calling out
waiting to be touched
and i cannot resist
i cannot withhold
the desire within me
to embark on a voyage through you
filling every crevise
until i can recall each piece of you as if it were my own
and end my journey
resting my head upon the peaks of your breasts
able to hear your heartbeat
like a song that only sounds when we are together
telling us that in this moment
it is only us
and will remain that way forever

Lately I've been feeling our connection is weakening.
Its like I am not getting the signals your showing me.
Your sending me to many mixed messages
And I cant read all of them.
I gave you some space and oxygen so you can breathe.
But you keep saying I push all the wrong buttons.
You never open up to me anymore.
Maybe I am just being to touchy on the subject.
I just want to screen out your name sometimes.
You keep saying I always put you down abruptly
And I don't pick you up in time.
You don't even accept your own mother in law's calls anymore.
You've blocked everyone out.
Maybe I am not giving your docile, curvaceous frame the attention it needs.
I cant even remember the last time I was able to turn you on.
Perhaps you just don't want me to talk to you.
I remember when you used to take so many pictures of me,
Video and document my every move.
Now all I get is a blank vacant expression.
I refuse to believe our connection is dead.
I can repair it if you give me t

These self eroding kind

Faces shading in the dark
They scream from empty walls

Voices whisper and hoist
echoing through my head
sometimes I just wish I was dead
consuming space and time
and leaving nothing but the trivial slime

Before the poem I would like to share a personal quote
"Humanity doesn't own the Planet. The Planet owns Humanity. "
I was born by mistake,
Children playing and throwing seeds,
And one of them was blessed for me.
I had a hard time growing,
But the children were helping,
Giving me love, attention and carrying.
I grew to be a big, strong tree,
A peach tree full of fruits of amazing beauty,
But this changed quickly.
The love which I got,
Was only from children, not from the monsters,
Which wanted to see me falling and suffering.
They asked, they wanted me to fall,
But I showed them that only Nature brawl,
And the Monsters only growl.
But, as you know,
Nothing lasts forever,
Even my time has to come to an end.
So it came,
That I must fall.
The Monsters started happily to yell,
And I couldn't say to my children Farewell.
It is sad that Humanity arrived to this point,
Where they can't make a difference between Humility and Cruelty,
Also I have a questi

Throw up at any given chance?
Why must I
Skip every meal I can?
Why must you
Be such a dominant part of me?
Why must you
Do this to me?
Why must they
Think something is wrong?
Why must they
Assume I'm sick?
Why must you
Grand me this power
Why must you
Make me loose reality
Why must I
Always wish for the lower pounds?
Why must I
Always reach them and want less
Why anorexia, why?
Aren't I good enough for you?
What is it you with for?
What is it you are trying to achieve?
Dear anorexia, please leave me alone.

Demonic AngelsIf love is called a blessing in disguise,Demonic Angels2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Then you - my dear - are a curse by all rights
For you think nothing of bringing demise
To me by grace of your angelic lights.
Perhaps demonic is a better term
For only demons could share your allure,
Yet only angels have beauty so firm
That the hearts of all men you could procure.
I know not what manner of being be
As beautiful or alluring as you -
Sirens could never tempt this tempted me
For my heart would remain steadfast and true.
What curse have you cast to steady my heart?
What blessing is love when we are apart?

Play with it.
Then throw it.
I don't need it,not without you.
I am cold,dead when you're away.
You might as well break the son of a bitch into two.
I told you,stay away from me.
I am pure sin,I bathe in others pain.
But look what happens when a sin meets the Devil,
Dancing in the dark,kissing in the rain.
I never knew there could be someone,
Someone as sinful as me.
My darkness,your touch has enchanted my soul.
And now,you're calling me your queen.
But what are we,my love?
Just a couple of mortals gone to the bad?
In the end,we are all humans
Without many words left to be said.
So here's my heart,on the silver plate.
I kept my lips silent,my body was in your arms.
I am falling,I know this is hell,
But promise me I'll be your lucky charm.
I need to be your other part,
The one I am,the one brighter than your moon,
The pretty face you kiss in the mornings,
Love,you made me trust you.

I taste stress in your sweat,
tension stretched on the surface,
in the landscape of your
knots in your muscles,
like pearls under
I'll untie the ropes
and kiss the blank
of your broad brow
and I'll write
on my chest,
things like silver lies
and soft secrets,
and wires of frigid truth
because the truth is
so kiss me back,
strike a pose,
be a body
and let our bodies
juxtapose like slow jazz
and your fragile ears.
take a deep breath
of me and
as you tell your
that I miss it too
SlenderA man no longer a man, called forth to harvest,Slender1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Quiet in his resolve. The symbol marks his arrival,
A deadly warning to those unaware.
Hiding behind a mask of darkness,
Stalking prey with arms of deceit,
An evil grasp, welcoming to the touch.
Found when unexpected,
Nowhere when wanted.
A faceless monstrosity,
Not of this world,
Come to collect his due.
With arms consuming,
A suit fashioned of men,
Legs longer than trees.
Never failing in his crusade,
Stealing what crosses his path,
Always coming back for more.
LoveLove; we all need love in this world,Love1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
But God, how do we tell if it's just lust for a girl?
The devil has my mind in a twirl,
Lord, do you feel what I feel?
Can you heal this sick appeal?
You always stop, you try to stop,
But you get addicted.
And when you think you've made on top,
That's when you drop,
It's back to hell; back to reality,
Can't you tell you're a monster loving lustfully?
Once you're done, there's nothing left but emptiness,
Where's this happiness that the media promised?
If only you knew it was a lie, all lie,
There's no love truer than the one in sky.
But why, why do I give in to the lies?
My heart and my mind are at different parts of life,
So God, I pray for that day you come a take my pain away.
A walk through the woodsI was walking alone in the woods one day when I happened upon a strange sight. An old man out of place among the new shoots muttering something to himself. Normally I would have run from such a strange man, but for some reason I instead felt compelled to speak with him and ask him my questions.A walk through the woods1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
So I did.
"Who are you?" I asked when I came close enough for him to hear me.
"I have many names," He replied with a smile.
"Surely you must have at least one that you use," I said concerned that the old man might not be as harmless as I thought.
"Don't be afraid my child I mean you no harm, though others may say that I do. If you insist on a name use Abba, I must say I am rather partial to it," As he said the final word it sunk in just who this was.
"Abba how-why-wha-" I had so many questions to ask but now that I had a chance my tongue was tied into a most difficult knot.
"Save your questions for a later date, I have a message I'd like for you to send out." He said with a chuckle.

the room next door is quiet.
I watch my shaking hands.
Hopeful for some sign of life.
My brain distracts itself
I catch myself staring at them,
hopeful for some sign of joy.
I stare at the sky.
The world will turn upside down.
I swear I'll fly.
Or maybe that's just my imagination.
I didn't plan to end up here.
My feet simply carried me to the highest place they could think of.
I don't know how you did it.
Jealous is silly, I'm envying.
"You're too beautiful to go."
I shattered the mirror with just one look.
I've always spun such silly lies.
These bloody hands, screams of terror.
In the end some may find me staring into a mirror.
