The Boy and The StarsThe Boy and The Stars1 year ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
He liked to Stargaze, to stare at the glittering gods in the sky
Sometimes when he was alone, he would dance alongside them, and feel happiness for a fleeting moment in time.
He would find the constellations and watch their travels through the months and seasons.
Meteor Showers were always welcomed with his smile and the wonderment in his eyes.
When sadness overwhelmed him, he waited for a falling star, and wish with all his heart for his troubles to disappear.
Back to sickening reality.
Cycles and bottles rushed back into his head, the loud voices returning to his sore ears.
Not a penny to his soul, not a single piece of hope and a caring nebula liked the ones he wished he could be with.
When his head was down to Earth, he felt a deteriorating entrapment, and aliens, or what they seemed liked, reminded him every day of his prison.
Tears with stardust and hope fell from his cheeks.
At one point when he was the lowest points, he made a decision that seemed rational, practica
My motherShe says Im inconvenient,My mother8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
She calls me a mistake,
Says if she could go back
She wouldnt make it again.
When she found out
She wanted to get rid of me,
But her mother didnt let her
So she gave a birth.
She gave a birth,
But shes not a mum.
She never taught me anything,
Never heard my cry.
Instead my granny loved me,
But then she died
It was too early,
But I had to grow up.
From then on, all alone,
In the world of cruelty and lies.
Since that day I was on my own,
But Ive managed to stay strong.
Finished good school and got a great job,
And now, when I have money,
Back she comes.
Says she always loved me,
Put in me all her hopes.
She says shes a good mother,
And always was.
So then I ask:
A good mother?
You were never one.
I have a new life, so please, go.
You wont hurt me again, I am happy now

Dancing on the breeze
I wish I were a snowflake
Blowing where I please
I wish I were a dragon
Flying through fantasies
I wish I were a monkey
Swinging through fruit trees
I wish I were a Cheetah
The fastest thing on earth
I wish I were a hyena
Laughing with great mirth
I wish I were a little bird
Zooming through the air
I wish I were happy and free
From this wheelchair

Even as I write, you are what I desire

How much you mean to me
And now, more than ever
I just want to hold you
Tell you not to be discouraged
Everything will work out

The Spoils Of War
On continents- Wars have been waged
And bad blood as been shed
In countries- Leaders have been made
And some promises were never kept
In towns- Peaceful protests have been planned
It was just another way to fight against
In cities- Raging riots have been started
Because they were fed up with all the bullshit
There are established governments
Who are supposed to be for the people
But they continue to make corrupted investments
It's just a group who exercise and taint their freewill
We have soldiers we praise and soldiers who shock us on the news
Some fight for their nations and some fight with their titles that's abused
We have police officers who serve and protect, but there's also dirty cops
Each one has a reason but some are just in it for the money, which is never enough
There will always be another side! / There is always another face to hide!
Greed is in cahoots with pride! / Envy and wrath devou
The VowsThe Vows1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
We stood at the altar
In the fresh aesthetics of spring
You took my hand in yours
And slid on that fateful ring
I wore a fair dress
Clothed in a flurry of white
The poison smile
On my wedding, the only blight
So beautiful it was
My dress stained red
Our passion unbidden
I took off your head
We promised love
Till death do us part
And it shall
For your head, take my heart
My dear, my darling
Forget me not
Honor our righteous vows
And love me till I rot
We vowed forever
Let my love
Bury us together

I freeze in my footsteps,
Surrounded by white I am
I feel misplaced, and oh so wrong.
the only darkness in this purity.
The only flaw, on this perfect Stage.
The only one who doesnt know thier lines.
In this play of perfection.
Constantly making mistakes,
Never being good enough.
Again and again, I rehearse,
Retrace the steps, repeat the lines.
They go through my head,
The way the blood goes thorugh my veins,
In order to seek approval,
This is what I must do.
I go to the first scene,
Taking my place on the stage,
The curtain begins to rise.
So many thoughts go through my head,
Snow litters the stage
It goes cold.
I begin to move in my dark Attire.
Everyone begins to move in the dance.
I step out and continue on my own.
Blooming Wings.T'was a beautiful, spring day.Blooming Wings.5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
The wind softly blew in the newly born leaves of the trees.
The grass, a bright, lime green.
A green sea as it softly sways.
Clouds, all fluffy and white,
As they drift along the baby blue sky.
I saw my lover, dressed in his casual.
Sitting and watching as the day goes by.
He stared at me.
In awe, he watched as I blushed.
"You look beautiful today. A blooming, white blossom awakened with the sun."
He had said with that usual cheeky grin.
I couldn't help but smile as well.
I sat by him, underneath the old cherry blossom tree.
Keeping silent as my love for him was a secret.
"That cloud looks like a rose..." I heard him say.
He pointed at the cloud, a perfect image of a fully bloomed rose.
"Would that rose be an image of you?"
I felt my face boil as I heard those words.
Does he love me as much as I do him?
Me? An ordinary girl?
No... He is probably just playing with me.
Toying with my mind...
"You know..." He whispered as he looked at the sky.

I can hear you
knocking on the door.
Will I open the door?
Will I rise
from my ashes?
Can I play the phoenix

Will you play the angel?
things have changed.
And not just my weight
not just "straightedge"
not just the absence of fresh blood
Things have changed
I am turning around
I am facing the demons
who have haunted me
and locked me in at age six, forever
the abused child
I am facing them
and reaching for something
that's not a drug or a blade or an eating regimen.
I'm reaching for not something
Things have changed
I reach for you
and others who care, you
who can see the demons reflected
in my eyes
you, who take the time
to make me feel
like I matter.
I reach out
and touch your hands.
Things have changed
I am awake.
One WishEach sunset frees a wishOne Wish7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
One solemn wish, common to all
To release their burdens from sore hearts
Cumbersome, hefty weight bearing down on our minds
Settling with the dust among our deepest fears
Tossing life off-balance, our one wish
Carried away by sweet angelic breeze
Continuous hope held in battered hearts
Our wish will come true, for those who trust
Believe in ancient philosophy:
life never truly latches on to awful

Then, with a gentle look you took my hand.
As our lives engaged,
you lit my life and I held both your hands.
You're my man, my mighty king,
And I'm the jewel in your crown,
For you I would climb
The highest mountain peak
Swim the deepest ocean
For you I would cross
The rivers most wide
Walk the hottest desert sand
To have you by my side.
For you are the one
Who makes me whole
You've captured my heart
And touched my soul.
For you are the one
That stepped out of my dreams
Gave me new hope
Showed me what love means.
For you alone
Are my reason to live
For the compassion you show
And the care that you give.
You came into my life
And made me complete
Each time I see you
My heart skips a beat.

Heartache and pain
Chaos and rain
Jaded with disdain
With axes slain
The nightmare comes
For the writer when
He cannot overcome
His state of Zen
Pages filled with white
And yet never shining bright
A man going insane
His hands unable to shit out his mind
Relieve it from shame
And with raw walls grind
Suicide knocks at the door
Waiting for more
To announce itself to the neurotic
And rid him of his state so robotic
Mental storms ensue
Death knows he is long overdue
He opens the door
Falls on the floor
Tears in his eyes
Staring at his demise
Death tells him
"O Adam, only you can choose
Either endure or dim
Either way, neither I nor you will lose"
"But my monotonous state I cannot endure
All I want is to be able to fill papers
Of that I am sure!
I don't want to wait
And I seek not to let myself perish on this date"
And so Death replies
"Something is missing in your life
Nothing to brighten up or darken your eyes

I want to pop my cherry
Open your legs
Time to lay your eggs
Your child is a hybrid
Don't worry, it'll still act like a kid
Just a tad little different
But that shouldn't be a deterrent
Come on, darling
He or she will be grey
Didn't you say you hated earthlings?
Or were you just not "feeling it" that day?
So you're saying you don't like me
Just because my eyes are too big and black
Just because my skin is flabby
Just because I'm too short to smack
You humans aren't only amongst yourselves racists
But to others creatures, fascists
So you want to get an abortion?
Good luck, you virulent whore
Once they see that fetus
You'll get the government's attention
You'll be taken offshore
And will seek release from Jesus
You're stuck with me
Try to betray me
Try to kill my baby
And you'll look crazy

You're such a toy
Easy to manipulate
And mentally late
A lot like sexual bait
For those who cannot wait
The birth defect
Is your excuse
For being a reject
I want you to muse
Ponder the effects
No need to watch the news
Everyone knows the aspects
You don't even have a reason
Unlike the Jews
In World War Two
Who were accused of treason
And forced to take the choo-choo
You've lost all my respect
Become my adept
Or I'll strike you with a lightning bolt
I am Neptune
I control the moon
And you will be on my spoon
Because you're so delicious
And yet so precious

I bow to your beauty

Anything to be in your company

Forget religion, forget spirituality
You are my path to purity
You are my recovery
Your sight will heal me
Please stop torturing me
I am melting down internally
I am weak, solitary
I am more than lonely
I am more than unhappy
I am deeply gloomy
Please do not abandon me
Spend one night with me
You give my life a purpose, you only
Without you, I have lost a piece of me
I am suffering endlessly
My heart is not where it used to be
My lungs have sunken so deeply
That I cannot breathe correctly
I feel like this life is about to leave me

You will be better
Forget your desires
Be a liar
Lest you end up in a fire
Hung by barbed wires
Crushed by heavy tires
With your body lying on a mire
No one wants to hear your originality
We want uniformity
Shut your tramp
Or we will confiscate your lamp
And leave you with nothing
But your filthy darkness
In which you will be rotting
Because you are so grotesque
Sodomite, stop getting bent!
Hippie, enough with your dissent!
Stop acting like a faggot
Or your face, we will crush with our boots
Like a filthy maggot
Until you have but one tooth
We are society
We love you when you are we
But hate you when you are you
And in your mouth we will put our shoes
Obey and conform
To our norms
Or we will put you through a raging storm
Where no one will make you feel warm
You have been warned
Do what we tell you to so
Or we will give you the blues
And, by the way, we will not mourn
Be like the rest
And you will be the best

They don't care if we normally do it another way.
"Its wrong! Do it over!" They will shout.
And by this point my friend tells me she's going to throw herself out the window.
So why it like this I ask? Are we reall
