BrokedYou are a broken love story. A black and white photograph that has seen too many rainstorms.Broked4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
You are a quiet rainstorm. I've seen the puddles and the yellow, splashing galoshes in your eyes.
We held hands but you let go first. Leaves crunched beneath our shoes.
We held each other but the sound of one hundred pairs of black boots in step pushed through our tangled arms.
We laid out feasts of candy and beer and giggled like drunken children at the way the moon waddled above our rooftop.

of aimless revelry
of aimless war
on small scales
a gentleman's stare
a cad's sly looks
she thinks she is hated
she feels different
in a negative way
she feels unloved
she hears the whispers
she doesn't hear the words:
goddess beauty sugar-cream
mystery enigma desired
god I want to know that girl
she is a queen
and doesn't know it
and one boy
he's a poet
and his locker covered
in words of devotion
he is in worship
in love slow-motion
and all she can think
is that he must not
like her that much
because he never speaks up
that's how it goes
find the words
all you boys and girls
profess your love
before the sun sets on youth
take your chances
wake the sleeping ones
so that everyone knows
they are kings and queens
Crumbling.You aren't the same soul I remember way back whenCrumbling.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The stars burst into flames
And crumbled to our feet
And you kissed me soft and slow
My heart leapt towards yours
Waves crashing in the dark
They were our heartbeats
That made me deaf
And made you bold
That caused you to whisper inaudible things into my neck
My eyes got weary
And your eye got bruised
It wasn't meant to happen this way
Love's ArmageddonLove's ArmageddonLove's Armageddon4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Written by David Monid
When a loveless person finds love,
They place their hand on their heart and then they feel it beating.
But when the love is no more,
Their chest begins to throb so much, that their heart is breaking.
It's if you have been tortured, for no reason at all.
Just a cruel joke!
As if to teach you, that love is only just for fools.
So break the rules!
It's like I've just gone crazy.
Like my life's gone hazy.
This is the only just the start,
Of love's Armageddon.
The world is now just heartless.
Love is now just meaningless.
Nothing could prepare me or my heart for Armageddon now.
I have now become full of hate,
That I refuse to love anyone, my heart is aching.
I don't have any remorse at all,
Or forgiveness for what you have done, my heart is burning.
It's like I lost a battle and I refuse to go on,
Or keep trying.
What's the point in hoping, for a brand new light to shine?
So you'll be mine?
I feel like I have l
Black ForestShe was staring down into a piece of chocolate whipped cream cherry cake when I first saw her.Black Forest4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
If I could describe the beauty of a miserable girl, I would. But I can't, so I won't even try. Suffice it to say that this chick intrigued me from the get-go. That's not saying too much, I know, since I'm intrigued by bitches and broads every second. But the real miracle when it comes to this brunette enigma is that she kept my intrigue the whole. damn. time.
And she hasn't let go.
All I have now are flashes of feelings and a sick sense of remembered dread.
Actually, that's not entirely true. I have the panties, too, but little good that will do me since I have no clue how I got them.
It went like this:
I saw her staring into a piece of cake without eating it. I followed her outside. I asked her what her name was but she wouldn't tell me. I asked her out to dinner, coffee, anything. She handed me a flyer with some underground club's name and address on it.

A dona do destino dos teus dias
E o templo do teu desejo vernáculo
Mas na realidade, sou rainha de terras vazias
Sem súbditos, cantares ou melodias
De exaltação espiritual.
Sou sim, a vagabunda imoral
A prostituta flagelada
De um bordel de porta lacrada.
Julguei ser anjo de prata sem asas
Ou mesmo a diva poética da escrita
Mas não passo de uma farsa maldita
Incoerente e desdita.
Julguei ter vestido a pele correcta
Da personagem que pensei ser.
Mas na verdade, vivo nua sem saber
Sem a mística discreta
E sem o néctar do prazer.
E hoje o que sou?
Uma alma que ninguém amou
Desprendida e indomável
Aos olhos do divino, a intocável
Que por tudo já chorou."

Let my inner scars have meaning.
Let my external pain have a purpose.
Let the demons of my soul be tamed by the light of awareness.
Let others understand who I am and who I am not.
Let my past not to be judged by others.
Let me paint my own future
Let those commend my successes, but respect my pain.
Let me be me the whole me, heart, mind, body, and soul.
Let all know the whole me and not stigmatize parts of me.
Accept me learn with me share with me believe in me,
Then we will thrive to understand and together we shall reach a true awareness.

with a lie for a lingering thought
and a haunt for a memoir.
i cradle you,
closely examing your every nuance
and the curvature of your spine,
tracing my fingers into the crevasses and dips,
running my hands down
the back that breaks
beneath the presence of beauty,
willfully unable to hold itself up.
in vain i try to keep your eyes on mine,
but you always find the soles of your shoes
to be less feared than staring at souls.
i am imposing upon your territory
just by being in your thoughts,
you once told me to back off but
i told you
i cannot help the way you love,
i cannot control the heart that beats.

The people in my head want me to die.
There's so dark around, you can't see my eyes
So it's so easy for me to simply lie.
I'll fight 'till my death and there's no
Prize waiting for me at the end.
Just a thankful smile of my unborn child
And some stranger I accidentally saved.
I can't live for myself, so I'll live for everyone
To tell them that it's worth to fight
To be broken, but brave. To commit some mistakes
And to sent them this message:
'I have survived'.

Home of my dreams
Where the bright sunrise
Emits warm beams
Desired by all
For the festivities never end
Even if it's small
It's the one place I recommend
Port of riches,indeed it was
Even if the gold,we can't get back
We don't really mind,becouse
Greedyness is what we lack
Puerto Rico is my Wonderland
The coqui thinks the same
No other place can be as beautiful
What other reason is there for it's name?
Morbid HeartThese painful tears still fall downMorbid Heart2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
For the suffering I never give in
Angel wings of mine covered in crimson
Had forgotten how to fly long time ago
This little piece of ice I hold in my hands
For it shows the coldness deep inside
These eyes now empty and merciless
No tears, no more tears I shed
In this forest of darkness I walk
As a deadly shadow of the night
I roam forevermore these paths
There is still lost beauty within
These morbid thoughts better hide
They have darkened innocent hearts
Once so warm, pure and loyal
Turned into the worst suffering
His vicious life
Ends as the dawn rises
This shattered heart of mine I give
... For freezing winter
For fallen leaves
For forsaken lands...
