Your EyesI see the pity in your eyes.
You see in the woman that I've become the child that grew from darkness, from turmoil and insecurity the child that should never have been born (he said).
I see the pity in your eyes.
You cannot see my light.
Every experience, dark & light, good & evil has helped shape me into the woman that I am (from the child that never should have been).
You do not see my strength, pride and contentment with who I am.
You do not see the pity in my eyes.
All for youFalling asleep with tears in my eyesAll for you3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And haunted by the thoughts of you
This is for you hun'
Your face is smiling at me
A fake, ghost-version of your old beautiful smile
Teasing me with what could have been
What I could have had
Those bright blue eyes look at me
But the sparkle is gone
Now they're just the eyes of a stranger
I watched you dissappear
I stood by and saw you fade away
Only a ghost is left of the old you
There was nothing I could do
So this is for you my dear
I'm holding you oh so tight
Fighting to bring you back to life
I'm falling asleep with tears in my eyes
These teardrops fall for you
This is all for you my love
ScarsThe mind forgetsScars3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But the heart remembers
The criss-crossing scars
Show like stars
The streaming tears
And haunting fears
Of the slain
The cries of those
Who never screamed
Praying for life
Without a sound
The pleas for help
The wishes that chance
The pain might dull
And the mind forget
But the heart
Will always remember
BruisedTell me the words I desire to hear, your honesty is optional.Bruised3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Bandage my deepest wounds, while cleansing your bloodied blade.
Be so selfless to put me first, only to use me as your human shield.
Take the courage to lash out at my enemies, just to feed your own ego.
Praise me for my generosity, knowing I'm gullible enough to give you what you want.
Beg me for my forgiveness, only to repeat your betrayals.
Confide in me your fears, just to take from me my hopes.
Create in me a purpose, then reveal it to be meaningless.
Leave me with my darkest thoughts, making your escape with my dreams.
Set the standard for my expectations, left with nothing but a broken promise.

Could You?One smile was all it tookCould You?4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Who thought a heart could break this quickly?
One glance, one stare
Did you even remember that I was there?
Your eyes locked on her face
Who thought a heart could crumble into decay?
There are so many things I want to say
So many things I want to scream in your face
So many tears I tried to hide
When I said I felt better, could you tell that I lied?
Could you tell that this is eating away at me?
The image won't go away
I try to remind myself of happiness and glee
But I remember when you were with her, and not me
Now you tell me you love me, I trust you with that
And I want you to know that I love you too
But seriously, I'm starting to feel insecure
I want you to know that I love you, and only you
But, please tell me, could you tell me that too?
The FuneralHolding hands,The Funeral3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
throwing roses over a pearlescent casket
bathed in baby pink,
who knew death could be so feminine,
but funeral hymns plague the fragile air
while the graveyard is soaking up mournful stares,
maybe a few glances of relief are exchanged like drug money,
I look around and realize how everyone looks so alive
when we are surrounded by fatality,
translucent tears spill over flushed faces,
sunken eyes mirror hollow smiles
as the reapers cling to our backs like sloths
and everything feels slow,
everything falls stagnant,
then we drink from the goblet of faith and hope
and we get drunk off the elixir of life,
the fog clears
and our skin burns gold as the sun rises against our withered hides,
we can still feel the warmth which means we must still be alive,
so we don't move on but we do move forward
with our ancestors ghosts living within our hearts,
whispering in our ears,
and guiding us into the light.

while my tears of love soak into your shirt, and i breathe in everything that is you

as the sun lightly tickled the sides of your face
and revealed to me what i thought i already knew
you are perfect
and together we are perfect
if anyone were to request euphoria from the gods
they would find themselves wrapped in another person's essence perfectly
like the pieces of a puzzle
or the composition of an art piece
or tune of a song
that makes you believe you've found salvation

TomorrowThis world is procrastinating in adolescence,Tomorrow3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Still humanity is dazed by true life lessons.
Constantly, the words "thou shalt not kill"
Are replaced with a gun, when there's more oil to spill,
This world is run by people breaking their own rules,
Who are raping the future by bombing schools.
This world is in need of a drastic change,
In need of world with no war to wage,
A world where man can love all countries as much as his own,
Where the cloud of hate's flown,
Where the seed of humanity's sewn,
Perhaps then this world can have a tomorrow,
Not living in a hole with self-pity and sorrow.

Reading Why do you like it?Reading3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It's such a simple question, yet she finds it hard to answer.
Does she like reading because it's in some way forbidden? She must read fashion magazines, yes, but real books? Of course not!
Does she like it because it's somehow an escape? Is it the fact that she lets her tea go cold because she's a million miles away, chasing a world that does not exist? The fact that, when she has to tear herself away, she's afraid that the story will continue on without her?
Does she like the fact that it's a distraction? How trivial do mere bruises seem when soldiers are being struck down in battle? What are a few harsh words, when she's learning of women who were beaten down so hard and yet still managed to stand and fight?
Does she like it?
How she hates the way her mind has faded, provided with so many glossy images that she's been left unable to conjure any of her own. She can go about her day without acknowledging this horrible thought, but only by leaving the

We were in for a while but overdue another bout
Any apologies would be useless in this little war
The maggots will mean the argument is lost for sure.
Once the stone grows too cold she will bore of my grin
But don't put my skull back where I lie straight and thin
Up here is a sun to bleach the old bones white
And a silver sheen smile beneath the evening starlight
My nerves frayed to cobwebs and caught the last draft
I won't feel the heat or ice like I did before in a past
With dark empty sockets I'm staring on blind
But it's better than rotting satin and myself for all time.
But while you perch on my name you may chatter on
Tell me of those who remained after my coffin was gone

If only I didn't have to worry about the water being polluted or being hunted down as food.
There is times I escape to my dreams.
Where I can be anyone or anything.
In a land of clouds or water, far from any pain.
If only I didn't have nightmares...

There is times I wish I could be free..
Like birds, fish or the people of my dreams..
Yet I'm forever bound to reality..
I just want to be free.

Lies are what I thrive

UtopiaThis world will know calamity, and from the dust a new world will be known.Utopia3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The rise of the new will led you above, but to reach such a utopia humanity must first know pain. The loss of life will set the way for the rise of the new. Death and pain will force you all in a state of clarity, giving humanity the strength and the will needed to forge the way for the new. This can only be possible if the wars of the world are force. Truthfully we have tried in the past to create the utopia the world needs. You know these events as the great world wars. We will not give in to defeat; we will set the way for a next world war. As we have done in the past, we will use humanity to sow their own destruction, thus paving the way for the new.
Shut up already, I grow tired of hearing you spout such nonsense. You talk about a utopia but yet you put death and pain in the same sentence. Its true humanity is flawed and we might even be consider weak, but we can forge our own paths. Paths without destruct
It gets betterIt might not have been your day,It gets better3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With the sky above turned all gray.
You might ask yourself why?
Sometimes it feels like you slightly die.
You carry this secret with you,
It might make you feel a bit blue.
You don't dare to tell another person,
Fearing your image might worsen.
Fearing of what they might think,
Fearing they might leave you in a blink
Thinking what you will say
When you will tell your parents you're gay
But the actual feeling when you tell,
Even if it might feel slightly like hell.
You know that you are now free,
And you know it will get better,
on that you can trust me.
Embracive meEmbracive me6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It came to me one day: one sound,
A deafening whisper silence broke
And with its music stabbed my heart
That slept for ages, and awoke.
What can it be this burning light,
Scaring away the silent blind?
The fire bird flickering through
That grabbed my soul of air to bind.
I rise to it, surrender all,
The burden of beautiful sins.
Yet of the cry of lonely hearts
A darkened trace in me remains.
And as I step on dying stones
Of worlds I knew, that ceased to live,
I find my feet are cold and sore,
To gentle winds my limbs captive.
But now I dare to walk ahead,
The search of whispers, light, endures
And on its path I shall remain
Until the sound of me abjures.
I shall never again return
To the cruel vicious world of past
In which resentful bonds still crave,
For now I am no slave at last...

Push and PullMy heart is whole once again,Push and Pull3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But far away from me,
In a place as far as Sun delay,
Stolen; across the sea.
On silver thread of artery
You play my very soul;
But when the distance screams...
Forgetting to strum; you pull.
My fabric unwinds like elastic;
Frays when you pull too much.
I am knotted together to you;
When you run, I fall apart.
I never doubt this fine thread,
For I know I will it to be,
But rope is what I hope for;
One you've thrown to me.
