And try on daring dreams for size
Test your wings now, have no fear
For all is well and I am here
Go to sleep now, close your eyes
And set your gaze on cloudless skies
Explore the world awaiting you
Summon ship, appoint your crew
Go to sleep now, close your eyes
And dream of truth without the lies
See all there is, learn all you can
Remember when your life began
Go to sleep now, close your eyes
Then wake to see the new sunrise
Rest assured in knowing true
That I'll never stop loving you

I hold all your strings
connected with my heart,
I'm feeding you with my life,
exposing every piece of my soul.
But you took the scissors
and cut that line out.
Inspiration you are selfish bitch.
Sent me a devils to work with.
I'm applauding you for all your tries,
but I'm enough with your lies.
If you aren't capable to put the roots,
go away, I'll sacrifice your pity work.
It is not going to be easy I know,
to get myself up again.
If I can't count on you,
I'll find my ways to get thru.
Maybe they are not so right.
But I will let you know.
It's my choice.
It's my guilt.
It's my passion.
The Lake Between The CloudsIn a place where there are no starsThe Lake Between The Clouds1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
At the verge of nightfall's pledge
When one last piece of the sun
Stares from beyond the day's edge
There is a lake between the clouds
Its surface shining pale blue and green
And small dark rocks in between
Reflected in the silent water
Lies the image of earth's daughter
No sound, no lights
No feeding hand that bites
Oh, I wish I could fly
Nature's laws I would defy
To behold this wonder in the sky
Come Away, Come AwayCome away, come awayCome Away, Come Away1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
As I lazily lay
It was the last day in the month of May,
When it said come away, come away
Still I sit, never flit, out of wit
In my chair in the middle of nowhere
To go anywhere, I surely do care
But still I sit there, in the middle of nowhere
I can't find the strength
As I lie at full length
In this bed that I dread
But still it said,
From far far away,
Come away, come away
Like a daunting whisper, it taunts
Never leaving me, it haunts
To grant me needed ambition,
Or supply me with intuition
Carry me away, I say,
Take me away, so far far away
I can no longer stay in this chair and lay
Let me explore, I implore
The endless shore and so much more
Let me see, I plea
All that thee have made for me
Let me out, I shout
Out of this route of endless doubt
Come away, Come away
I still hear it say
Even to this day
It will never cease to say,
Come away, come away
Stranger in the MirrorFive months agoStranger in the Mirror1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I looked into a mirror
And didn't recognize
Who was looking back
The man I'm used to
Looks tired and hungry
Empty in the eyes
Like he's missing a soul
But this man was different
His eyes were bright
Face full of warmth and emotion
A purpose in life
Overflowing with love
"This is it, finally,
I've found myself"
Let 'em Stare...So they want to look,Let 'em Stare...1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Go on, let 'em stare.
They got zip on you and me,
So all they can do is glare.
So they want to judge us,
What the hell do we care?
You have me and I have you.
What else is there?
Just don't let them bother you.
Don't let them drag us down.
Can't you see that's what they want?
Don't waste your breath on these clowns.
They will always fight us.
Jealous of what we have.
Kicking, scratching, and biting.
Making themselves look bad.
'Cause honey we have power,
Of which they will never know.
And baby-girl we will never fade.
Our light will always glow.
See, Sweetie you and I are a force,
That the world has never seen.
We'll take them all by storm, we will
We'll conquer and reign supreme.
'Cause Babe, this is mount Olympus,
Our castle in the sky.
We are Gods among mortals, Love.
We are Titans, you and I.
So Hun, here is your tiara,
And I shall don my crown.
We will sit this throne as King and Queen.
And we'll burn them to the ground.
Beautiful MorningOh, what a beautiful nightBeautiful Morning4 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Finally I know what it’s like
To lay down by your side
And hold you close to me
As we drift off into sleep
Staring in your eyes
Just one last time
Before nodding off
A truly amazing feeling
But what really made it
So very spectacular
Was when I woke up
And looked to the right
To joyfully see that you
The most beautiful woman
I have ever met
Were still there next to me
Arm around me
Pulling me in towards you
That moment in time
Far more perfect
Than ever imagined
ImportantI took a moment tonightImportant5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
And thought about some things
Things that are “important” in life
School, work, money, the usual
Stuff I've been taught takes priority
But no matter how hard I try
Nothing can convince me
That anything’s more valuable
Than the happiness I feel with you
So I guess what I am trying to say is…
You are what is most important
You have been for a while now
As cliché as it may be to say
I love you
I want you
I need you

You left my life with such haste…
That you never said goodbye
It’s been a while now
What have you done with your life
These past 9 months?
Are you where you want to be?
It’s funny that I care
Because all you seem to be
Is the faded memory
Of an almost forgotten dream

I stare into those eyes once again
Think back to when I first met you
How you stood out among the others
And for one short second that day
You were the only other one in the room
I knew there was something about you
Something incredibly great and special
And now I find myself back in the moment
I have no doubts, no concerns
I am sure you are the one
The one I have been looking for
All of this time
And that’s when it happens
I say the words “I do”
Have You Ever Felt This Way?Do you have any idea what it’s like?Have You Ever Felt This Way?10 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
To live every day, not knowing what day it is,
Because you just don’t care?
Because you are numb, you feel nothing….
Depression is not what people are telling you…
It’s not just a sadness, it’s more a feeling of nothingness
You smile and laugh, you feign happiness
But in reality you feel nothing,
You just know that is what you are supposed to do
And the last thing you want, is someone asking about it
So you just keep being a fake, and you survive
You lose track of the days
Because time goes by so slow when you can’t feel a thing
You feel as if you shouldn’t even exist
You feel as though nobody notices you anyway
What’s the point to living when you aren’t really alive?
You keep asking that question
But you never have an answer
You never will have an answer
But you keep moving forward anyway
Till you reach the day where you’ve had enough
You stop listening to what everyone else has to

Is it anything like you dreamed?
Does my heart beat the same?
Or is it faster? Stronger?
Was it as peaceful as you thought?
Did you feel the warmth?
Are you comfortable being held?
Please do me this favor…
Look back…look back on that moment
When you were enveloped in fantasy
Could you feel it in your heart?
That feeling, deep down, that you knew
Knew it wasn't really fantasy
But reality that had yet to occur.

Through These EyesIn a city where it rains so muchThrough These Eyes1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
How easy it is to just see gray
Not through these eyes though
These eyes see color everywhere
No sadness will be found in the rain
By me all that's found is joy and serenity
Each drop hitting the ground is a small symphony
I say let these tears of bliss fall from the sky
Breathe life into the plants
Quench the thirst of the city
This is what I see in a city so "gray"
And it is through these eyes
I catch a glimpse of something angelic
Inside of you,when I look into your eyes,
I can see it, feel it, deep inside of you
A mysterious elegance that pierces the heart
I know now, my queen, there is nothing
Nothing more exquisitely divine than you

Yes, it is finally here.
I know this to be the day
Of Good Tidings, so they say.
Memories of Christmas past,
Some remain, and the glow they cast
Fills me with warmth and delight,
All a part of this merry night.
Family and friends gather
Some stay home, if they rather.
But calls and cards abound,
Snow softly covering the ground.
Words and angst set aside;
Warm feelings, we do confide.
What is important, my dear,
Never let go, be without fear.
It is time to catch the contagious
Holiday Spirit, however outrageous,
And share our love, truly do;
Merry Christmas, from me to you.

For I, a leaf, doth fall for you.
O whipping wind! with gentle ease,
Twirl me softly, spin me true.
Glow strong! Glow bright, O setting sun!
Your dying rays a shadow cast
And I, a broken, little leaf,
Shall chill and fade to ground at last.
Sky so dark and night so fine,
The frost hath settled in my soul.
I'll keep this secret forever mine,
The last warm day I briefly stole.

So I sigh, and wonder why,
No one understands how I feel inside,
As I wipe away the tears from the pain in my eyes,
Oh, he's just a loner, the kid that sits in the back corner,
Never could fit in felt like a foreigner, no matter where I'd go,
I'll just be a weirdo, worth nothing like a zero,
I lay in bed and wonder, did god make a blunder,
Isolated from winter to summer,
I try to rise, but I fall like leaves,
So hard to speak, is it a disease, but I'm shy not a freak,
Toss and turn as I try to sleep,
When will I awake from my depression,
What time is my resurrection,
Is their something wrong with me, do I need a correction,
Shy, different, flawed, but that's a blessing,
because imperfection is perfection,
So I'm done stressing,
Learning to love you for you is one of life's lessons,
If you share the same feelings,
I hope my words provide some healing,
So no more sighs, no more tears from my eyes,
Flawed, different, or shy,
We all can still shine li
You've Both FailedAs my parents,You've Both Failed1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
You've both failed.
For this reason,
You should be jailed.
Instead I'm the one that's in prison,
But that wasn't my decision,
And you left me heartbroken.
The police came,
But they couldn't take you away.
Justice isn't fair,
That's all I can say.
The law protects the sick and insane.
While the innocent suffer,
And live with the pain.
The police said that even a homeless man,
Had more dignity and hope,
Than you do.
And mom just told them that,
Everything was fine that she'd take care of you,
Her favourite line.
But they saw that you both were over the brink,
No matter what you say,
No matter what you think.
You both need help.
They asked you if your parents ever broke your heart.
You said no,
What a shocker.
Then they enlightened you,
That you broke my heart.
They told you both that you failed.
Failed as my parents.
Failed as my friends.
Failed as human beings.
I couldn't have said it better myself.
I saw the tears forming in your eyes.
But tears meant, and still mean not
What Is a Hero?Look at these pathetic peopleWhat Is a Hero?9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Calling themselves heroes
And why do they think that?
Because they donate to a cause?
How absurd a thought is that?
Just because they “contribute”
Pay off some bills of researchers
They think they can call themselves heroes…?
No, these men are the villains
In reality they do nothing
Throw some money at a problem
Hope it goes away, making them look good in return
How frustrating society falls for this
The true heroes in this world
Are the ones that live through despair
The people who suffer every day
But still carry a smile on their face
The heroes are the victims
Giving hope to the world.
