and it's ok
I hate myself anyway
I'm just a sore bunch
of murdered feelings
that refuse to die
but it's alright

I cannot feel
that way ever again
like in fairytale
I will close my heart
and keep you there
and no one can
ever take you away
Grave SongDeath is our finality,Grave Song4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
when time, that has plagued us so long,
ceases abruptly to be. We know this
moment beyond sharing will claim us.
Death is our finality,
old stories, lamenting songs
might seem to be some consolation,
but consolation, should consolation
exist, can only exist temporarily.
Death is our finality,
decaying flesh is cold and heavy,
no quicker than the lifeless dirt
heaped on top of the rotting carcass.
Death is our finality.

Let there be silence. Let the senator rise
and open his mouth to tell his lies
and nothing come out. Let the senator sit.
Let there be silence. Let the red light glow
to begin the lies on the TV show
and nothing be heard. Let the light go out.
Let there be silence. Let the old men begin
to tell their old lies over again
and there be no sound. Let the old men stop.
Let there be silence. Let the ears forget
the sound of all that the liars said,
the drawl and bark. Let the ears rest.

sighs grow from people’s throats –
a wistful melancholy
something like an unlit street lamp
in the middle
of the night
Things like this are matter-of-fact
to the one who made the window
and some might say that it is
a sad way to see the world but
I don’t think I feel sad at all.

Made from love,
Made from tears,
Made from the realities,
That once were our deepest fears.
Bound to kill,
Until they die,
They are evil,
But full of love, thats why they cry.

I was Not a Bad RulerFor those who can hear me,I was Not a Bad Ruler3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I am simply misunderstood,
For underneath my armored shell
I'm just trying to do good.
So I took over the Crystal Empire,
it's just a bunch of rocks
I didn't break their crystal heart
I let them keep their socks.
I chained them up so the wind
wouldn't blow them all away
And I made everything dark for Luna
what more could I possibly say?
I felt really bad for Princess Cadence, so
I let her stay alive.
Also I'm sorry for Shining Armor's horn
I really really tried...
I'm not a bad ruler, the ponies
just didn't like what they got
At least my song is less repetitive than
Queen Crysalis's, is that not?
Nobody expected my speech impediment
to stall my slow return
But I guess that's what you get
when your public opinion's underscored.
Seriously, give me another chance
and I promise I'll make things right.
Despite my sharp horn and fangs,
Don't worry: I won't bite.
SublimeAll that lays before his eyes now it’s just the abstract of his world,Sublime2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Mixed, twisted, undone to bloody pieces – everything he ever loved.
He kneels in front of the mess he made this time,
His ruthless, unjustified crime,
Of his world that was once sublime.
Wrecked into his own abyss,
Desperately, he wishes just for a single moment of bliss,
Yelling to the darkness, to the ashes of his existence,
He’s trying to dispel the endless distance.
His bitter tears cannot infuse life into his world,
A pile of dreary dust…
It makes him tremble, a harsh wind gust.
He deepens his sweaty, shaking hands into the rubble he made this time,
“Here I stand, a stranger in this land…” he whispers to the gloomy sky,
“I cannot savor the downfall, to this I’ll never comply”.
Behind his veil of tears, a feeble light reborn from scraps,
Will he sink into an eternal collapse?
His world is slowly rising up from the ground,
But this time he’s excl

"Just a few more takes and we're done for today." Your manager said, skimming through your schedule as you stood on set, getting your hair and make-up fixed. The advertising required fans so your (h/c) hair constantly blew out of place.
"Good. I think Romano comes in today." You said, closing your eyes as the make-up artist touches up your lashes. You smile a little. "I'm excited."
You manager places a hand on her hips, lowering her clip board. "Are you sure your ready? It's like having a child or a pet. Lots of responsibility."
You were a little annoyed from her lack of faith but forced yourself to giggle, your angelic mask unfaltering. "I am. Thank you for your concern."
"Miss _____! We're ready to start again!" The director called out from behind the cameras.
"OK!" You replied, preparing yourself. Your manager and the artists leave the set to you. You close your eyes as the Director started the count down. Once he reached the pause for 1, your eyes open and you give the

I just want to hold you close to me,
Wipe those tears of fear from your eyes,
Wishing you could see your beauty.
Its clear to me that you're hurting,
A thought that tortures me inside.
I long to take away your pain ,
But that request has been denied.
I'll stand by your side forever,
Till death tears me away from you,
I'd never leave you willingly,
My love will always remain true.
Give me your sorrow, pain, and fear,
I would gladly bear them for you,
One like you does not deserve them,
In sympathy my heart bleeds too.
Listen to me and please believe,
You're beautiful as none can be,
Incalcuable in your worth,
Yet you give of yourself freely.
Be strong and know that you are loved,
Your trust I could never betray,
I'd hold you close comforting you,
I promise it will be okay.

but there is nothing strange about us.
neither of us were expecting
some one-night fling to grow
into a magnetic candlespark,
beautiful in its cliché sorrow.
and you love my clichés,
because i mean them in

hanging on the hope,

pretending every star

to go, wishing you could stay
forever, wishing we could live
together, wishing our wishes
came true and trying not to
