How your pearl earrings that shone in the moonlight,

Were sold with your tears?

Were traded along with your soul?
And didn't it shatter your heart to pieces

You know THAT girli'm the nervousYou know THAT girl2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
kind of girl with
too little time on her hands who spends her
evenings in her room,
just savoring the quiet.
i'm the girl who puts her hand against
the clouded window and wishes
there were something- (a hand?)-
on the other side.
i'm the girl who realizes
there isn't and may
i'm the kind of girl
who likes autumn and has always, always wanted
to get a streak in her hair.

trying to put the wrong

i'm the girl who's always

afraid to touch

staring at you in envy because

insane and that it won't

A Colourful WorldOnce we all had coloursA Colourful World2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Yellows, blues and oranges
Greens, whites and tan
Pink, purple, and cream
Violet, brown, and black
Life was good,
Life was peaceful
And freedom reigned
But some began to wonder
If good was good enough
To remove the colourful stains
All the blacks were chained
Life continued as before
For those not black there was more
But the blues wanted to explore
And so were put behind locked doors
The greens they said were fine enough
But their ways were a bit rough
No more running around in the buff
Be like us, follow our bluff
The pinks took pity more than hate
And classes made to change their ways
Their colour was not bound in fate
Act like us they all would say
Violets could live their lives
But change their colours or face the knives
While the browns were denied their wives
So with them their ways would die
The yellows were sick the doctors said
And gave them pills that made them red
While reds were locked behind closed doors
For their safety chained to f
ShipI missed you todayShip2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I regretfully say,
My feelings are tides
moving every which way
The image of you
shall be washed apart,
As the shore and the ocean
do gently depart
And the way that my feet
left prints on the sand,
Is the way that I felt
when you held my hand
But it's time to move on,
this ship's found new land,
The anchor is sunk,
and I will withstand
Hope for ParadiseThey say Adam lived in a perfect paradiseHope for Paradise2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
With all he needed and a girl by his side
But the devil told him of all he could have
And that day was the first time he cried
Now he struggles to regain what once was
Wishing he could have what he knew had died
But the worse thing the devil could have done
Is when he went and told us this lie
Paradise is still there for you my son
You will have it back if you only try
If you only try
In the stories life would never end
And joy would fill those short and tall
But then Pandora opened her holy jar
And out Now from the box pain did fall
And though she hated what the world became
Inside the box another voice would call
And Hope came out to the joy of those around
Think of glory while through the dirt you crawl
But Hope is truly the strongest curse
Without her you know I'd end it all
You know I'd end it all
And I remember the days in my hometown
I'd look up and see a mansion on a hill
With a dozen cars and laughter all around
While every day I worke

In my bed,
Starring at my phone.
Going through photos,
Seeing you and me.
Under the sun,
By our favorite tree.
To make you happy,
I would never try.
I sit and cry.
Screw my feelings,
I have nothing to gain.
Since I lost you,
All its done was rain.
Night grow long.
My broken heart,
Will never be strong.
You played with my strings,
Made them twist and bend.
I was your puppet in a show,
That had no end.
I'm in my bed.
Wishing and wishing,
I'd just be dead.

Is Anyone Out There?Is Anyone Out There?2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As I gaze into the sky so wide,
billions of stars floating side by side,
I think about how tiny we are,
circling around one medium star.
My mind soon drifts across endless realms,
wondering as I do "Who's at the helm?"
Is there a God who made all these things,
or nothing more than a phantom king?!
Then I reflect on my life down here,
all of my troubles, all of my fears.
If there is someone up high above,
should I send Him a prayer of my love?
Still I worry, does He truly love me?
If He is real then why can't He see,
all of this pain deep inside my heart,
threatening to tear this poor girl apart.
(so she prayed this way...)
Unknown God if you truly exist,
please bend your ear to hear my request.
I want to believe with all of my soul,
to feel your sweet love is truly my goal.
Please tell me your name, just who you are.
I'll travel the world both near and far,
to seek your knowledge, purpose and wisdom.
Please consider this child for your kingdom.

It was my first day of classes and I would say they went okay, school was boring so I slept through most of it just like my new friend Rin. I was glad he wasn't too mad about me punching him the other day, however since then he keeps trying to get a rise out of me. If I didn't know any better it's like he wants me to jump him. I ended up walking to Cram school with Rin, he was a pretty down to earth guy, though he made me swear not to let anyone know he was a demon, I gave him the same ultimatum. 'So let me tell you about class, there are some interesting people. Though stick with me if you want to be with the cool crowd.' Rin stated as he inflated his own ego, 'why do I doubt that?' I laughed as Rin turned back to me with a sharp look. 'You don't think I'm awesome?' 'Never said that, but cool people don't call themselves cool.' I laughed as Rin's sharp look remained. Once we arrived in class Rin shouted out his hellos to everyone. 'Morning Rin,' a cute girl spoke as she smil

I said stop.
That’s you. Yes, you, the reader. I want you to stop. I want you to stop moving. I want you to stop breathing. See how long you can hold your breath.
Are you doing it? Are you holding your breath?
Can you feel the nagging feeling, calling on you to open your mouth and inhale? Can you resist it?
Do you see how unnatural it is?
Breathing is what keeps you inside this world. It is something your body does without thought, without command. You have to force yourself to stop doing it, and it gets more and more difficult to do so. Your entire body screams at you to open your mouth an inhale. Your mind reminds you again and again, pulling you like gravity down again and again until you can’t think of anything else except taking that breath. Your own body and mind want you to suck in the air that keeps you where your mind and body want you to be. Where they think you should be. Can you resist them? What if they’re wrong?
That is what it feels like.
Light of ManThey told me that God reigned highLight of Man2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And taught me his rules and story
So that on the day that I die
I could live up there in his glory
But I hear the voices all around
That what I learned was just a lie
No glory of God can be found
And my faith is bound to die
Now I've seen a mother's warmth to her son
Protecting him from all around
And men who live like we are one
Even though they sleep on the ground
I've seen people give all they have
So a stranger's life may be free
And if we all go down this path
Life is better, you will see
So if we all give into this love
And live life for all its worth
Then I don't need a god above
Because his light is here on earth

With midnight chills.
Thinking of you,
Always gives me thrills.
Like how you smile wide,
Or how your eyes shine bright.
Being with you,
Makes the dark turn to light.
We'll keep each other warm,
Even through the cold.
We'll always be together,
As we start to grow old.

Are my chattering teeth

Will also freeze.

Is where I lay.
I think of you,
And start to pray.
The times we had,
The moments we'd share.
We were perfect,
Nothing could compare.
To hear your voice,
It'd make me fly.
But to see you again,
I'd start to cry.
Our last night together,
Won't leave me head.
It replays over and over,
I wish I was dead.
Sitting in that car,
Unable to move.
I cried and cried,
While I was removed.
Seeing what happened,
I glanced in awe.
Still not knowing,
He broke the law.
Hours went by,
I refused to leave.
I stayed in your room,
On New Year's Eve.
I looked at the papers,
I had to know.
From what I saw,
I couldn't let go.
I couldn't bare it,
After a long week.
I covered my eyes,
Not giving a peek.
What I saw,
I couldn't believe.
What it said,
Left me in grieve.
Seeing those reports,
My heart just sunk.
I lost you,
Because he was drunk.

You only notice,
When I fall apart.
It's quite hopeless,
If only you knew.
I just wish to say,
"I love you."

When you get past that point, they call it a nightmare.
When you pass that, well, then it must be called purgatory.
He had had a lot of time to think it over, and that's what he decided this was: Purgatory.
He felt something latch onto his automail foot and cried out, heart racing and hand flying to instinctively cover his throat as he kicked out. The creature let out a surprised yelp and its presence slinked back, away from his corner.
He had been dozing again, taking advantage of the brief snippets of peace between agonies, but he could never truly sleep. Not when he was so cold and so hungry. Not when he shared this tiny cell with three feral wolves that would much rather eat him than leave him to his rest. He thought he had gotten his bluff in on them in the beginning, thrashing them every time they so much as looked at him funny, but he had been told animals had a sixth sense for weakness.
Well, if he was anything rig

I will not be controlled. I will not be owned, I will not be confused. My mind will stay clear and strong, and I will remain my own man.
Your colored lights will not dazzle me. Your loud voices will not command me. Your images will not trick me, destroy me, and rule my mind. Crack into my skull and just try to take a hold on it, there is no grasp for you to find.
I will remain my own man, and I will not be owned.
Because I will not be hypnotized.
I will not be pressured.
I will not be forced, I will not be tricked.
I will not listen to the voices of the multitudes. Two and two is four, one and one is two. A thousand voices will implore my obedience and they will be ignored. I know what is right, and I will not back down. With a hundred million feet marching towards darkness, I will turn toward the light.
I do not care about numbers, numbers do not equal right. I will not disappear into the group, and I will not follow the blinded crowds.
