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 you2 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

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.
DreamsYou are as young as you feelDreams2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Quite cliché, but it is quite real
Everybody wants to live their dream
Sometimes getting caught up in the stream
They flow down the river
Sometimes they slightly shiver
Fearing that they don't know where the river will end
Will it be a good or a bad end?
They spend their lives securing their lives
Sometimes not even living their lives
They want to keep what they got
Getting caught up in their own plot
Starting to regret the things we missed
Sometimes even making us a bit pissed
Asking ourselves each day: what if?
Sometimes we even slightly sniff
The future is about to unfold
We cannot turn old
As long as we dream instead of regret
Reading Why do you like it?Reading2 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
UtopiaThis world will know calamity, and from the dust a new world will be known.Utopia2 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
If I was your Vampire There is nothing I want more now than your neckIf I was your Vampire2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I can be your eternal vampire who could deck
Your blood, turning it into sparkling rubies
Your melliferous skin, morphine for my griefs.
But if I do this, the curse will not easily break
Only sacrificing my soul for your own sake
For all that, I still can not stand it
You are the real kidnapper, me,a victim.
Turning back my eyes to your blue veins
I would keep them forever in chains
Comparing them to melting ice
Just the color of your precious eyes.

Push and PullMy heart is whole once again,Push and Pull2 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.
It gets betterIt might not have been your day,It gets better2 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 me5 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...

But the heart remembers
The criss-crossing scars
Show like stars
The streaming tears

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

Baking cookies that taste like home,

TomorrowThis world is procrastinating in adolescence,Tomorrow2 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.

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?

Bounced and hurled around
Her 'special' white room
As she rocked back and forth
Hitting the soft pillow like walls
Making the sleeves of her too tight jacket
Move with a similar rhythmic motion
But what stood out the most were her eyes
Even though they sometimes were hidden
By her untamed mass of dirt brown hair
Her bright midnight blue eyes shine brightly
She did not see the white room
Nor did she feel the suffocating pressure of the room
Instead she saw and felt a soft field of green grass
And a little black kitten with amber eyes
That would bat at a delicate butterfly
That carried the starry sky upon its blue wings
She felt the cool spring breeze and gazed
At the quickly fading sunset
That sprouted colors you could never captured
Even she, herself knew that she was crazy
But she no longer cared
She no longer wished to try and grasp
The flimsy string that connected people to reality
And all that came with it
Despite that she was crazy
