Supermassive Black HoleStrings of starless strands
lasso my sanity,
as a Lyzzard's tongue
slays unawares a fly.
Distorted snarls melt
my glaciers in the dead of night;
vibrating in the frequency
in your wells of gravity,

spinning towards the singularity.
A blink before the light,
the brims of Space
of satin waves

My Painting of YouI painted you today.My Painting of You3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Rolled up the paper,
and carried you in hand.
Gave you to a girl,
with your eyes,
and chestnuts in her hair,
Made her smile,
seeing butterflies in a field,
but she gave you back,
when she saw
they are going in the sunset.
I put you on
my dreaming wall,
to be my last glimpse,
of my world
before I remember
you're only a painting.
SeptemberI don't know why,September3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I still break down and cry,
At times I find myself,
Wanting to shout out for help,
I want to tell you that I love you, but I don't know,
I just don't know if what we had before is possible,
I hope that you'll always remember me,
And the good times that came to be,
Forget the arguments and the fights,
Step out of the shadows and walk into the light,
Maybe one day we'll talk again,
Forgive each other for our sins,
Until then I'll hold it all in,
Because sometimes it takes two to begin,
Honestly, I just want this month to be over,
As days go by I can feel my heart grow colder,
This would've been two years together,
I really thought that it would go on forever,
My phone reminded me, said it would never end,
And when I read that, it dug deep under my skin,
But never is the longest 5 letter word,
Because now your voice may never be heard.

I don't cut.
I don't only sleep after I cry.
I don't self harm.
I don't want to die.
I'm not who I am because of my music.
I'm not who I am because of school.
I'm not who I am because of what I watch.
I'm not who I am because I'm trying to be cool.
I don't want to gain attention.
I don't want scars either way.
I don't want to be judged.
I don't want to mocked because I stay.
I hate when you call me emo.
I hate when you call me dyke.
I hate that you're my family.
I hate that you hurt me through spite.
Today I heard you say;
That if I changed school I wouldn't be emo.
You're like my second father.
And yet what I feel; you never know.
You have no idea who I am.
You have no idea what I feel cause I'm lying.
You have no idea that I hurt easy.
You have no idea that now, alone, I am crying.
My sisters think it's funny when I get pissed off.
My sisters think it's funny when I cry.
My sisters' jokes are cruel.
My sisters tell me they'd laugh if I were to die

DreamsWhat wonders the imagination can bringDreams3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
With opened ear and untamed eye
Dreams that we shall toss and fling
And float about towards the sky
By luminous light of thought
Day and night will awaken newly
And become what you have sought
To find your most distant Thule
Never letting go of that which we cherish
The spirit of innocence and truth
Why without it, what would we but perish?

Silence.When the silence comesSilence.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
we will be called the contemplators,
originators but never innovators.
We will serenade ourselves at night
with the arabesque pinwheels
of the unquantifiable, and the inescapably
abstract pooling behind
Abstract and abstruse.
It's in our nature
we are the tawny wings
pasted on scrawny and thick
bodies, waiting for anyone to turn
on the lamp and suck us in.
We hope for heaven,
and only get burned.
But when it comes
we'll be waiting. We were never
not storytellers, because no one
ever wants our stories.
We're the ones left behind
but left intact. Nothingness
is a wholeness in itself.
It comes not as we were told
it was about time to get rid of fairy tales,
the sparkling suburbs of bliss.
No one cares about gold-paved streets
when the mundane is over-processed,
cheap, and impure.
It will arrive one day
and everything will return to
its beginning: the dead will
rise and fall again, Adam will
flow back into God

Currently living by a primary school looking for some new prey to stalk again.
Masks himself as a confidant, someone that the children can call a friend.
Specialises in seducing and lulling its victims in to a false sense of security.
With an ulterior motive driven to defile and desecrate their innocence and purity.
How is this ungodly predator somehow able to evade all configurations of authority?
No one is capable of figuring out why this predator has these vile and vindictive thoughts.
No one can possibly understand how much torture and suffering his actions have brought.

Their young to avoid and not to communicate with strangers.
Performing their duties as guardians, preparing and protecting them from any danger.
For them one day to be kidnapped, taken, leaving only their clothing as remainders.

Tell me, how could you extort the life out of those shiny, brown eyes?!
I'm vividly smiling as he slowly dies
Tell me, didn't you fell a thing while giving the poisonous kiss?
I feel every beating of his heart as we are immersing in the bliss
A soul collector, destroyer of the mind,
I'm about to extinguish his light, to leave him lost and blind
I'll encage his ripped soul,
Just after he'll lose the self-control
Don't drag another soul into your disgrace,
Just one more blanked face
Don't kill again with your breath-taking embrace,

You know you shouldn't, but your claws are digging already in his chest,
I'm spilling his blood, the flesh I wrest
Don't collect this soul, not this time,
I must capture his soul before he captures mine,

reek the havoc of the peace you try to seek
You can no longer hide
Behind your veil so white
The words spoken are eating you alive
You refuse to comprehend
And face what you fear
You float and Bob,
Trying to swim with your beer
You choose to fight this battle on your own
Dumbass! Just pick up the phone
People are close,
Closer than you think
Like a stalker in the daylight
When they're weak
I want to scream
And spit pity in your face
Empty the hurt
That dwells in your case
Fighting with a ghost
Yeah, that's real sane
I worry you wont come back
You need to feel the pain
I'm done, fluck it, I give in
a mere skeleton in the closet
Pushed away with a sinister grin.

Through my honor,

Judgemental and pain
These words are similes
With your name
Greed and envy
Jealousy and a liar
Dancing on hot coals
And questioning the fire
Not even considering
The people in the picture
Forgetting what the purpose is
Ignoring the scripture
Preaching on poverty
Then blowing off your money
Yelling at the racist
But thinking t's funny
Crying at the people
To stop judging and assumin'
But we always fall again
We who are only human
ComplicateToo often in our livesComplicate3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We complicate things,
Cluttering our minds and hearts
With useless worries and fears.
Instead of drinking in the Summer sun
Or becoming mesmerized by your coffee,
You worry about getting sunburnt
And consuming too much caffeine.
We forget to take pleasure
In a simple hello and goodbye;
A smile shared, an "I love you",
A hug given for no reason.
We analyse every look and smile
Since each syllable means something;
Even a tiny thing such as an emoticon
Has a deeper meaning these days.
A simple "how are you" or "why"
Can be seen as offensive,
As too intrusive, as nosy,
Too demanding and suspicious.
Just talking to someone of the opposite gender
For more than a few minutes
Will have people automatically assuming
The two of you are in a relationship.
Instead of enjoying the music,
We criticize the lyrics, discuss the tune,
Making the song so technical,
Sucking it dry of any emotion.
Just sitting alone on your bed

When I ask if he still loves me
And the rebounding quiet screams
His unspoken response.
And the occasional reluctant verbal translations:
"I don't want to talk about this"
"We are not having this conversation"
Codify this as the official language of our domestic domain.
"Only silence is spoken here."
It is there
When I ask my child:
"Why have you done this thing?
Endangered yourself, hurt me, hurt others,"
And her reply consists only of a murderous glare.
How dare I break the house rule and speak the forbidden tongue?
And I'm left to wonder if she even cares.
Do my words even matter?
Am I even here at all?
It is there
When my best ideas are offered aloud.
Did I misinterpret the fact that I was elected to this position?
Was it a perception of reticence that was my sole qualification?
My words echo off the walls in the absence of noise that follows,
Meriting nary even an acknowledgment,
Just the deafening roar of soundlessness
Admonishing me for
Breaking this hallowed silence

Put the blade down
Don't you think it's time for something new?
A new attitude, a new way of dealing with
The things they put you through
A new way to survive
A new way to pull you through
You may not see it now
But if you hold on
It always gets better somehow
So throw your self-destructive tool
Away and join the fight
We'll show those in pain
That there's always a light
And I know you think that no one's there
And I know you think that no one cares
But the things they said, they're not true
They're only trying to hurt you
If you go through with this
It'll only get worse
So just throw it away
So just throw the guilt away
All the anger, all the pain
All the fear and all the shame
Just throw it all away

There's a girl stood looking down
And she's so far up
She can see the whole town
Little did she know

They'd take back all the things they say
But now she'll never find out

Just wait and see

Rolling out of control
Loud and predictable, we all know where I’m going
Down, as sure as water, I will fall
And as a boulder, I will tear down everything in my path

Do you remember the blue summer sky?
Free of clouds and full of dreams
Our lives were so wonderful
All day long together with friends free of all worries
Do you remember the bikes that we used to ride?
I remember riding till the very end of the sunlight
All those times we fall and then got back up again
I remember all of it all the fun that was to be together
Do you remember the nights?
Nights full of games of hide and seek
And the fireflies were the only thing that shined in the dark
Also the sound of the crickets that echoes till the dawn
I remember all of that with sorrow in my heart
The way we were young and carefree
All of those memories now rest in our heads or in pictures
But I shall never forget about them
Nor will you forget about our time of joy
You remember it right?
The time when we were kids of the province
When we didn't have all those shiny technology
When we used sticks as a sort of fun
And to tell you the truth it was more fun back then than now

Practically sitting on the edge of tragedy;
such a catastrophe.
My mentality is such a calamity;
the audacity of that analogy.
Elaborately I express my insanity;
with such brutality.
And yet, ever so casually,
I sit on the fence of normality;
the formality of my mortality.
Yet again, it's all in vanity.
My life is such a travesty;
but still, such a fantasy.
My life perhaps is a rhapsody;
and I will patently, so valiantly,
live my life with majasty;
amnesty, lazily and happily.
Let The Tears FallSometimes it feels so naturalLet The Tears Fall3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like the gentle rain of spring
Having tears pour down your face
Washing over everything
I'm not ashamed to let it out
All the emotion kept inside
To have it trickle down my cheeks
It's something I refuse to hide
Just letting go opens my heart
It allows my soul to breathe
But unlike the tears raining down
These feelings will never leave
Sincere emotions make it rain
These same emotions make me strong
I'll never shut my feelings down
I guess I've known that all along
There are times that I'll let go
And let the rain wash over me
It's a deluge coming from within
When I'm like this my heart can see
