Balance Out The StarsWhen you balance out the starsBalance Out The Stars3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
No matter who you are
When everything fails you
And life doesn't get you very far
Just live with it
You'll ascend to the heavens
When you balance out the stars
And your life is full of scars
When nothing works out
It becomes extremely hard
Just live with it
You'll ascend to the heavens
the empty boxA box emptied of it's contentsthe empty box5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
In a locked room
That I don't dare enter
For fear that I'll
Remember to fill it
Somewhere in the dark depths that is
Things I shouldn't know
Things I don't want to see
With that the door
Shall remain closed
Just Another DayI would wake up in the morning, take a shower, have my breakfast, get dressed, and get ready for work. I would then drive to work, do whatever I needed to do, come back, watch some TV, do things around the house, get ready for bed, and go to sleep.Just Another Day5 years ago in Science Fiction More Like This
This was how my day was like. This was how every day was like. I thought this was how everybody lived. But apparently this was not the case. My name was Man and we were told not to change our routine for any reason. If we did, they said to us, then something quite unpleasant would happen.
The sun rarely came out but this was one of those times where there was neither clouds or smog and it was visible over the the wall. It made me slightly happier and I smiled as I drove into work. I drove the same route everyday passing buildings that looked oh so similar to each other. It put me into a trance and I'd arrive feeling
2. LoveI often wonder about him as I stare at the pictures on my computer. All the rides we had together, that soon vanished after he did. I never thought I would see him again. I cried so hard that night. I will never forget the look on his face when he remembered me. Three years had passed- three years of broken abandonment. As if sent by God Himself, back to my life, there he was! My beautiful Sabrian. But my God . . . he was nothing but skin, bones, and scars. He ran from me the first time I tried to catch him. My heart cried to him- and for him. But after minutes of being with him, I touched his cheek, moving my hand up over his eye, and down the length of his face, kissing his forehead. When I stepped back to look in his eyes . . . the look of utter shock, relief, and happiness.2. Love3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
'It's you! I remember you!'
I remember nodding to him, smiling as tears cascaded down my cheeks. Then a few days after, while I was un-tacking him, he nudged my arm. I turned to look into his eyes, and cl

a boat journey
with gloomy Charon!
to this hell's baron!
A cheap journey
what I need
I'll throw it
to the cup
like a discobolus!
To mollify Cerber
is best for scratching?!
to reach Elysium
I'll seduce them
in demonic groins

and didn't cry.
i've forgotten why i used to,
why i should,
and i don't understand
when you look at me piercingly,
are you looking for my soul?
i think it blew away in the wind,
a butterfly with feathery wings
of shimmering lace,
Sympathy for the pedophileI have a demon inside of me. It controls my body beyond my mind's desires. When I see them, their supple young bodies uncorrupted by the cruel, ugly world, the demon is excited. Oooohhh....it's so bad, but I can't help it.Sympathy for the pedophile5 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
I did it. I cried while I did it. She cried as well. It felt so good, but I hate myself. She ran home and told her mother. The police took me away, it was a quick trial. I plead guilty on all charges. Outiside the courthouse people screamed for my blood. Somebody, her brother I think, actually fired shots at me. I was wheeled away to jail.
I was in prison for a long time. I had to be protected by people who obviously didn't want to protect me. They wanted to throw me to the dogs and shit on my remains, but the law binds them. Still, their protection waned from time to time. I was beaten brutally each time. Nearly killed. Most attacks were toward my privates and my butt, as if they thought they could torture me any more than my own body does. It's almost funny.
DisarrayDisarrayDisarray4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I wish I couldn't feel anymore.
Unbearable this pain is.
I wish to be cold,
A heart of stone.
Where no emotion can penetrate.
Unwanted; a lonely life.
To bare a state of abandonment.
This mortal coil is choking me.
Leaving me gasping for air.
Quiver unaided, I can't breathe.
A lonesome road.
Pitch black darkness.
Light nowhere to be found.
The odds pitted against me.
Those prying eyes are waiting; waiting,
For me to make a mistake.
For me to slip and fall.
Unscrupulous euphoria of my failure,
Fill their heart's unending sorrow.
And I, trying to stand up again,
Is broken by a thought; a longing.
Happiness eludes me.
My tears drench my face.
Empty and stripped of faith.
Hope seems to be a distant memory.
This vicious cycle of life

They can't see that I'm starving,
that I'm shrinking, that I'm wasting away.
They see the fragile smile,
and they assume everything is okay.
They poke my ribs
and prod my thighs.
and believe all of my lies.
"No, I'm not hungry."
"I already ate."
"I'm going out with friends."
"Yeah, I'm doing great."
Yes, please, I'm hungry.
I haven't eaten all day.
What friends have I got left?
Yeah, I've gone astray.
Ana, I thought that we were friends.
I thought you'd guide the way.
And now I'd wish you go
far, far away.

Bed of greens that taste so great
Garlic croutons, spread within
Bacon bits, my little sin
Lots of dressing, its so good
Mix it together, like you should

That entices those poor souls
Towards its hidden depths
'Tis the beauty of the evil
That tempts those broken souls
Towards its darkest point
'Tis the artistry in the murder
That draws those twisted souls
Towards its sinking heart
'Tis the life in the battlefield
That lures those dying souls
Towards its tearing centre
'Tis the smile in the psychopath
That attracts those lonely souls
Towards its destroying core
'Tis the light in the dark side
That brings those wounded souls
Towards the inevitable end
