TimelessMy sun in the day
My moon in the night
My light to my dark
The key to my heart
The smile for my face
The glow of my soul
The beating in my chest
Pieces made whole
The sweetest of dreams in my sleep
The warmth of your arms
The spark from your lips
The shine in your eyes
Love of our lives
Our two hearts form as one
Forever mine..Forever yours...Forever ours
This Bed...This bed is too big for me to sleep inThis Bed...2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Too much space that you could be filling in
I reach out my arm hoping to hold you as I sleep
Instead I grip sheets...
This bed is too cold for me to stay in
Not enough warmth within
I struggle to live as I dream
With only the half of my heart I have when you leave
Not TodayNot today will I brighten youNot Today2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Not today will I warm you
Not today will I light your darkest path
Not today will I sparkle
Not today will I shine
Not today will I come from behind the darkest cloud in the skies
I'll freeze you with winds
I'll drown you with rain
I soon blacken the skies that darken your face
Not today can I be there to stay
But there is one thing I can say
Tomorrow I'll brighten you
Tomorrow I'll shine
Tomorrow I'll warm you so you'll feel alive
Tomorrow I'll push away the clouds to brighten that blue sky
Tomorrow I'll dry the rain and tears from your eyes
Tomorrow I won't hide
Tomorrow I won't fear
Tomorrow is a new day
I'll still be here
AcceptanceI feel like I no longer know youAcceptance2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So what's the point...,
of holding onto feelings that aren't true?
Why even bother...,
waiting for you to care?
When my love for you is no longer there
Why do I continue to waste my time?
Trying to keep a heart...,
that was never mine
How do I keep failing to see...,
that you're just not the one for me?
Now that I move on...
You're now the one pushing strong
You just can't seem to accept
that I'm now gone
In all the time I've known you
and all the times I've seen you
You now finally open up...
but it's too late
I'm over you
RainRain trickles down my window paneRain1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Crying diamond tears
Walking down the lane
Frozen in time
Like an old photograph
Bright colors, subdued with nostalgia
Kiss the flowers' velvet dresses
A fresh breeze
Swirls around me in a whirlwind of
Hope and love
I inhale the dreams that died
Buried under the hard ground
That the new rain has unearthed
I dance with abandon
Childish laughter bubbles up like a spring
As I vivaciously stomp through a stagnant puddle
Life breathes around me
As I spin and twirl
Smiling as the sun begins to shine on me
Parting through grey clouds
It beams at me with its gorgeous rays
And we say goodbye to the remnants of the vanishing rain
They Always SayThey always say the good die young,They Always Say2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
but I never thought it would be you...
with all your laughter and all your joy
I never dreamed you'd leave so soon.
And where were you taken, that sunless day,
when the sky poured acid in mourning?
And why did you of all people have to go...
The questions tormented a thousand days
a thousand dreams
a thousand tears and more.
And I could find no solace in the words they spoke...
the reasons they conjured up to put meaning
in the senseless.
They always told me the good die young
and now I understand why.
The good in us is born of generations of lives
spent trying to turn this black planet to gold.
And your face was fresh as the dew on unbroken spring grass,
but your soul was a hundred years old--
KarmaThe fire in my eyesKarma1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I should use to light underneath me
To move me from this hesitation
And get back to reality
Finally break from the shell that I was encased in
I just needed the right motivation
To clear my head
With this verbal redemption
Karma may have paid you a visit my dear
But too little too late I fear
Hide behind those words you write if it makes you sleep better
Justifying your actions as if that makes the heartbreak any easier
Don't even try to relate, you've never been in my head
So walk on..keep thinking that lie of 'our love' instead
Don't think you did me a favor
Giving me that 'clean break'?
That's only a slight sting I'll savor
But that'll be your biggest mistake
You're not as complex as you think
It's purely black and white
You knew what you'd do when you called
So stop questioning whether it was right
That 'burn' you gave....
Ha! Darlin I walked through those flames unscathed
However I did cry thats true...
But only briefly were those tears for you
My heart remai
The girl who doesn't existLet me tell you a storyThe girl who doesn't exist2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
About a girl who doesn't cry
Who doesn't die
Who seems to fly
Through my mind
subtly stealing into my eyes
She's a girl who's just there
Taking the bare
Barren landscape and growing
The girl from the future
And the past
And she never asks
About the mask
That doesn't exist
In parallel she dwells
Though she fell
Up to me
Through the haze of this
False HopeFalse Hope2 years ago in Scraps More Like This
What is beautiful, you ask?
Beauty is deep red lips protruding ever so slightly, straight ebony hair that glistens in the sunlight, pale skin that stretches smoothly and flawlessly, flowing curves that brighten the eyes of any being, and petite feet that caress the Earth with each step.
To put it more simply, I'm beautiful.
I may be conceited, but modesty is overdone by other girls who have real personalities.
You wanna know a secret?
My lips; they are the outcome of years of biting, shredding, and bleeding.
This hair; each strand has individually been pulled from end and combed endlessly.
My skin; has spent countless hours burning under harsh chemicals, soaking for days.
These curves; they are formed by suffocating wrappings around my stomach and waist.
And my feet? They're constrained, but I'll be able to walk when I'm older at least.
What do you think?
Pain isn't a big price for beauty.
People make the bargain daily, I just happen to be .. An extremist of sorts.
I'm not the only one
Kiss GoodnightYour face glows in the lightKiss Goodnight2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With that gleam in your eye
And that smile ever so bright
My body long aches
For your strong embrace
Holding us together so tight
Our hands then gently place
On each others' face
Pulling closer to what we desire
So soft and devine
As our lips intertwine
Hearts beating faster
Shivers down our spines....

yelling at me
never knowing when its enough
never knowing if its real

the fear of being alone
the fear of being taken away
the sadness engulfs me all over again

WingsWings2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Through the lowest of the low,
I seek light from this pessimistic exoskeleton.
something that even the tree that once bled cannot grant me.
You may have silenced me by the throat,
but my unspoken words will penetrate through abhorrent memories.
Even in my apathetic sentiment,
I stood so modest upon my minor struggles.
now lacerations in my once pure feathers.
Constellations shall never be seen again.
I'm stuck in this dark hole.
I glue my joints against the walls
in an attempt to slide myself up.
You've unknowingly closed the walls that could release me.
I'm stuck by your command.
No longer an individual.
I am a puppet.
To get to liberty,
I must let you slide in and take all of me.
None is me.
Left is you.
I had no choice.
Power doesn't come within a demanding voice,
but rather the intricate mockery from the utensils of words;
the power to bind.
I do not possess that power.
My freedom; cost?
Priceless were those wings.
GamesI used to watch their imaginations and the games they playedGames2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Mine also were just developing
The game of fitting in was my life
Being attached to the group of social butterflies was the allusion
I was not too small or too mean
But too quiet with big, glassy eyes
They made their fun and their jokes, making me bleed from the internal scrapes they left
Being singled out completed my day
My mom said be yourself and smile and try
I tried so hard every day not to cry
Now I'm grown
No longer a daydream but a real life
With many friends and no regrets
My imagination is of my future
Of happiness and everlasting success
When I have kids, they too will play the games
But when they get older they know that those will slowly fade

Take that one moment

Take the mountains that will forever hold their mists
Take the children that will always have their toothless grins
I'm Obtuse, and You're AcuteThough your emotions are acute,I'm Obtuse, and You're Acute2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My response was so obtuse,
And I'm sorry now and yet I'm not,
For different people approach life
From different angles
But I never meant any harm or pain,
Still it seems insensitivity's
A habit from which I can't refrain,
And my "humour" simply cannot be tamed,
So that even as a friendship waxes
It soon wanes
And so I find myself alone again
So your emotions are acute,
And my responses become
No less obtuse
Still I must refuse,
To see things from your point of view,
Because I'm obtuse,
And you're acute.

The warmth of your skin will comfort me
The strength of you arms will protect me
Hearing nothing but the sounds of our breathing
Hold me close to keep me warm
Underneath the sheets, no longer feeling cold
But as your breath blows into my neck
I still get the shivers down to my toes
Holding me close
Feels so perfect
Within your arms
No longer do I feel alone
In these arms I'm home
