Infatuation(Verse 1)Infatuation3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I watch you dance from afar
with people watching, people laughing
Why do I keep thinking about you
when I don't even know who you are?
Ablaze from a vision so enchanting
I can't sleep---your feet tiptoe through all of my nightmares
All night I torture myself with sweet impossibilities
'til I'm too weak to fight for the truth
Is it a crime?
Fascination with someone you've only seen twice?
Infatuation with someone you've only seen three times?
Is it a crime
that I want to press your lips to mine?
You waste your beauty on the weak,
on the common, the unworthy
If you could see what I could give you
I hope that you would change your mind
I'd sacrifice it all to have you
Throw my life away to start one with you
We'd both be free from this hell
if you would just come willingly
and succumb to the unholy truth
Why do I wake whispering your name?
I'll never know you, never hold you
Yet I have failed to put out the flames
QuestionYour icy eyesQuestion3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Burn into mine
A meltdown inside
A question rides
Into the night
An eternal flight
What are you asking me?
For what else can you and I be, now?
You always set aside
All of your saccharine lines
'Til no one else can hear
You always try to slide
Yourself into my life
But what have I to fear?
That I'll fall headfirst for your soulful guise?
That I'll turn my back on the world tonight?
Just to have one taste of that sheer delight, oh...
Your hands brush mine
I freeze in time
My heart's a divide
Your lips seep wine
Your touch, divine
Pushed reason aside
There's no more asking me
For you are all that I see, now...
A strong, unbidden tide
of feelings I've denied
comes rushing through the years
I'm wary of your kind
and all your dark designs
But how I need you near, oh...
'Cause I've fallen hard for your soulful guise
And I've lost my will to heed the wise
Yes, I've turned my back on the world tonight, oh...
CapricornFrom December to DecemberCapricorn3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
What a dreary year
She remembers it's her birthday
Checks the rearview mirror
Of her Lexus that she drives into the parking space
That's reserved especially for her
She walks into the building
Greets her employees
Who flit from task to task
Like a swarm of bees
She sits down in her office in the swivel chair
Nothing's there to remind her of home
Well, her colleagues all respected her
But their false smiles all affected her
Behind her back, there is nothing but envy and hate
She's a Capricorn
She works hard every day
Always works, never plays
Gets promoted, gets paid
Such a Capricorn
Works so hard every day
Ask her why, she can't say 'cause
Maybe even she doesn't know anymore
From December to December
Yet another year
He remembers it's his birthday
As he drinks his beer
Reads a letter from his mother
And pulls out again a 20 dollar bill, year after year
Tuning his guitar backstage, a joint in hand
He wonders how long it'll take this time to land
He gets up with
Arachnid LoveTraveling over sticks and stonesArachnid Love3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
A wayward lover is coming home
The wind whistles and harshly blows
But even that can't drown out the sound
Never to emerge again
A spider entered his lady's den
Thoraces were hanging everywhere
Her abdomen loomed--white and bare
Afraid, he took the thread to seek, and
Nature told him what to speak
Awed eyes sparkled in recognition, and she
Embraced him in a quick decision
Languid love followed repetition
Evening came and the moon looked down
At arachnid lovers together bound
Glared at he who lay so still
Leered at she who made the kill...But his dead
Eyes stared back, happy and filled
Traveling over sticks and stones
The wayward lover has come on home
The wind whistles and harshly blows
But even that can't drown out the sound...of arachnid love.
I Fly to YouA bee to a flowerI Fly to You3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I fly to you
My only wish
to press my body against
the soft fuzz that blankets your being
and fills my dreams with the feel,
the joy of rolling and dying
in this field of you
And I will drink from your mouth
a nectar sweeter than the dawn
And I will climb into your petals,
never to return
Terrapin TraitsSwimming out of necessityTerrapin Traits3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Their flippers kicking back,
These homebody terrapins
Are never out of whack
Their shells look as if painted
With the finest hand and brush,
Their forms, to me, totemic
Their voices, a multi-volume hush
They move with utter grace
And eat with proper utensils,
They do not speak or write a word
For they've means better than pencils
They treat each other with respect,
Except when they do not...
They show their love without pretension
And for that, they're adored a lot
Yet, sometimes one makes the other mad
And is ignored quite much
But cold spells never endure entire days
So again, they dance and touch
When their minds imbibe a sudden idea
And decide it's good as gold
The tenacity which they proceed
Could cure the common cold
Their daily lives are never a bore to watch
Every simple movement is so enchanting
If I attempted to describe this with my tongue
In a very short while I'd be panting
They show there can be continuity
Among all varied walks of life
I feel su

TamedYou're such a dazzling manTamed3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I'll have you for my own
You'll be at my command
When I get you alone
Sashaying down the street
I flick my eyes towards yours
You glance and feel complete
And you're drawn to the source
Feet walk of their own accord
You're like a moth to my flame
Get ready to be adored
And after, you won't be the same
You'll never be the same
You're gonna be
I'll make you lose your mind
I'll kiss you
Until you lose track of time
Before this passion that reigns
If I were you
I'd let this, let this
Be your surrender
You're already tamed...
But really, who can tell
The mistress from the slave?
I feel that spark as well
And I can't be saved
I meant to crush your heart
Toss you around like a toy
But I can't play my part
I'm done with the ploy
When I hold you in my arms
I'll never know why you're there
Can't help but feel such alarm
'Cause I took you by force, unawares
You didn't stand a chance
Remove your shackles, your chai

Lay Me down to sleep.
Rest a sure that my soul is to keep.
don't lie with me.
Or all hell will break loose.
In this pandemonium of chaos.
In this hell of ever lasting, silent torture.
Thy air that I breathe.
tainted with hell full sins.
i'm cast down, deep into my burial ground.
to sleep alone.
forget me not, for this body I shall cast out and my soul shall live on for eternity!
I shall haunt thee,
And rape thy mind that seemed so innocent and precious to thee.
Think twice before crossing the invisible thin line to hex me.
I shall betray thee.
Hide in shame thou does.
Because it is thee that does thy betraying!
come down, come down, come down!
come down from your everlasting, untouchable, high horse!
And face me to a taunting duel of life and death.
Kissed by a plated, simple Black Rose.
"A Haunting memory""A Haunting memory"4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
For a brief moment, I was a monster
How could've I nearly hurt
The one who looks up to me?
Another sinister being tried to use me,
Not myself, yet I was still there.
She refused to leave and almost caused her harm,
But her will brought me back.
Seeing the fear in her eyes concerned me,
Why did she fear me?
One of the strongest of our team showed
Apprehension whenever she had to work with me.
I still wonder if the brief moment I was a monster
Has taken a toll on her.
I can only hope to know in time.
The brief moment he was a monster,
I had to stay strong despite my fear.
The residing fear lingers on my heart as
I continued walking through the dark.
How I want to tell what happened,
But I didn't know how.
Our leader seems to be noticing my fear
Yet everytime he asks what's wrong,
I force it away and carry on as if it was nothing.
Despite my efforts, my guilt and shame
Haunts me every night while with my team.
For showing love that left me vulnerable,

The lust for flesh
My skin, ripping and tearing
As new life breaks forth
It takes control
I lose myself to the wolf
The carcus of a dead creature
I gorge myself on it organs
The taste of blood
It fills my mouth
I finish feasting
Hearing screams of horror
Instincts have their way
It takes my flesh
Devours my soul
The moon in full
I've lost control
The wolf within me
Begs for more meat
I call out
With a deafening howl
Who shares my curse

An Angel on this Field of Ice,
I hesitantly step on this,
Field of Ice.
This surface of ice,
It is but the most slippery,
Field of ice.
I try moving slowly,
On this surface of ice,
But my Crooked skates,
Knock me off balance.
As I start to fall,
For the very first time,
I accept help,
And In no time,
A hand catches me within the fall,
She catches me from my misery,
And helps me escape the pain,
Field Of Ice.
With the sweetest voice,
Asks me,"Are you OK?",
Even though I seem afraid,
I nod aimlessly,
While I reach for her fragile hand,
I grab her hand firmly,
With the the grip even death itself,
Knows to be too tight.
This grip is,
And Almost unbearable.
Even though it is so hard,
For her to bear,
She continues to hold my hand,
Helping me inch forward on this slippery,
Field of Ice,
At first we move slowly,
But our speed gradually increases,
She lets go,
Telling me, "I will be back"

Martyr:It's Never Too Late
You don't have to believe me, but I know
All the different kinds of pain, and processes of sorrow
What it feels like not wanting to wake up to see another tomorrow
I had every attempt planned out
I slammed the tear-stained pen down
I screamed in my head it's either never or now
And I slowly walked out onto the road
Trying to not turn back, because there's no more hope
I left it behind mixed on the paper, the last goodbye letter that I wrote
Give me your hate / Hand me your pain
Toss me your blame / Force out your bane
I've broken all of my blood oaths
Stacked on top of all the unread notes
The words written down always dragged me into the undertow
I secretly despised my own existence, I'm nothing but a coward
Every second I spent alone I always backed myself into another corner
I want to leave nothing to be remembered by, I don't want my death to matter
All I can say is don't make the same mistakes I have, don't die on the i

Lost within a tribal drumming

It's like there is no one better than you in this world
And I know if I look to my right I'll see someone better
And if I look to my left I'll find someone even nicer than you
Whatever goes in my mind, it happens to be about you
Nothing seems to stay their forever
It's like you became my drug of everything
It's like you're the reason I wake up now
The only thing I regret so much is you
You aren't worth it
But yet my thought always drifts to thinking of you
Your always on my mind
It seems somehow you became my drug
I could have sworn that I never wanted any of this
But you and your stupid signs
You brought me to where I am now
But your making me stronger
I'm feeling better by the moment
I know that one day
I will be looking back and saying
What was I thinking
Someone else is already taking over your place in my heart
Cause by now I know that your not worth it
I know one day I'll be fully over you
By time someone else would rep

Here I will be,
Waiting for you,
When the time will come,
When our hearts finally meet.
In the past,
My heart had been broken,
Broken so many times,
That the pieces of glass, Were so small,
They couldn't be pieced together.
You did something that was
You gave me a new heart,
A heart without any bruises,
A heart without any bends,
You gave me a heart,
That is so brave,
It glows bright,
So bright, That I am no longer afraid,
Afraid of my fears from the past.
In the past,
I would have never thought that such a thing,
Would be possible,
But that is love,
Love is something that amazes us,
Its powers are so unparalleled,
That we can't even begin to understand,
What lies behind the word, Love.
It is so powerful it gives us something that escapes us, Bravery.
Here I will be,
Waiting for you,
Hoping to find the answer,
To what Love truly is.
The person I will love,
Look at me,
Our appearance may be different,
Our levels of Bravery are differ

not to read this
we could both be dead.
Or you might like that, ever the
terminal romantic, ready for the drama
of things not moving.
I'll keep this short.
Simply that I hate the thought of
you not being there,
wherever you are, or who you
are being, or for whom
The days behind us
have become adjacent,
so although ahead we may be undone,
your life and mine, though imagination,
have become compressed
your image burned.
So, if one day you should find yourself
Falling down the rabbit hole or
Lost in some abyss, never to return
Know that in every second spent (and gone)
there is a Love
of everything you ever were.

You stand so sure, with such allure
Just like a king
For you and you alone my heart takes wing
Your eyes are my undoing

Such fire, such ardor brewing
In the wake of your deft glance
You walk before me
And I'm fazed

Staring after you

Oh, all the kisses that I'd lay

I remember the Immortal Butterfly
Translucent wings that drank from the sky
Glittering dust would fall with every flap
Like warm tears dripped upon my tiny back
I would always chase this butterfly
as it makes its way across the sky
When I look I feel as though I can forget
The painful needles that twist into my back
I would always dream of this butterfly
and I wonder if I could ride it and fly in the sky
When I dream about it, I don't regret
Not being able to leave this tiny bed
Sometimes I can't see the butterfly
My vision turns grey like a stormy sky
I get scared during those times, because it makes me think
Of how everything could fade, before my eyes can blink
I remember when you first brought me this butterfly
You said you plucked it right out of the sky
Did you know it was the first thing that made me smile?
I'll tell you that story, so let me rest awhile...
I love...this little butterfly
It gave me dreams...of a beautiful sky

The sun rises to shine over the green lands.
The warm light revives the sleeping plants.
All that is now sleeping starts to wake up.
The birds start to sing the morning songs of joy.
The forest animals start to come out of the dents.
The air is filled with the smell of fresh grass.
All starts to come to life as spring arrives.
The forest now is full of life.
Young ones now learn how to live in this world.
Parents guide them through the unknown.
Their footsteps are at first unsure but later they become full of life.
The voice of happiness of the young ones now echoes across the lands.
A father wolf shows his son the lands.
The young wolf gazes upon the endless green field.
All the animals run through the grass with grace.
The young ones follow their parents step by step.
Around the river all the forest animals are gathered.
They enjoy the fresh water of the mountains.
The youngsters are afraid of their reflection in the water.
