Welcome To HellI'm dead now,
And it's my time,
To be cast into the dark hole,
Which leads to hell,
I smell the smoke,
As I fall,
Into the flaming pits of hell,
My life of sin,
Just wasn't forgiven,
When I shut my eyes for good,
I didn't here chimes,
I never knew you,
And I slipped off the edge and began my fall.
The dead walks,
There are no graves,
Lost an forgotten,
Entwined with ugly green vines,
I see the evil I feel the heat,
I may not be glad to be here,
But my life had landed me here,
Too late to change anything,
There is no heath,
Just burning ground,
Time to burrow in the hot coals,
And be burnt alive,
No more dawns for me,
Hell fire, is all I will see,
A Letter to No OneThe clock ticked against silence,A Letter to No One2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Upon the cemetery of a room.
Deep sighs weave through the air,
Meager warmth in compressed despair.
Moths fall prey to a musty lampshade,
An opened window to Night’s gloom.
Thoughts dance like ripples on water,
And clouds on the hiding moon.
A lullaby plays from the gentle sound,
Made by scratching pen on paper.
One story told too many times,
Is voiced from words created.
Though this time revived from lies,
A phoenix forms the ugly truth.
The pen rolls from the wooden desk,
Having served its final use.
Old dusty dolls and teddy bears,
Watched helplessly through glassy eyes.
No star showed to twinkle hope,
Not one ray from the busy moon.
On the clock’s tick, a rope was hanging.
On the clock’s tock, a form was thrashing.
A tired, hoarse throat gasps for life,
Cut abruptly by the Reaper’s scythe.
Poems on the shelf with an unknown author.
Paintings on the wall left unsigned.
Just another heart trapped in horror,
An unfinished l

I don't want to be this way.
But I can't help but feel this way.
No matter what you do
Or what comforting words you say.
My over active mind will not allow me to believe it.
My weary blood shot eyes will not allow me to see it.
Even though my attentive heart is able to receive it.
My thoughts and my imagination will corrupt and deceive it.
And that's why no matter how much I love you.
For some reason I will always feel cheated.
So please don't blame yourself because you have done more than enough.
You have proven yourself and have provided me with so much love.
There are only so many false accusations you can take.
There are only so many false promises I can make.
There are only so many times I can make that same mistake.
Until I foolishly recognize what is actually at stake.
How long will you have to accommodate my insecurities?
How long will it take for me to completely trust you?
Until you begin questioning my emotional maturity.

So you no longer feel the love I give
The affection I show
Or the hope my eyes try to be
Come over here now
Tell me your truth
Show me those tears
And I'll tell you my truth
Show you my fears
I'll tell you about a girl
A girl who found hope in the most hopeless boy
Let me wipe the dripping sorrow of your cheeks
as I figure out what you need right now
Let me be the first person ever to be there for you
I'll tell you this story,
I'm sure you will appreciate it
the girl is cute and boy so strong
A happy ending too, just as it should be
Just as it will be
So come over here now
Crawl up into my arms
Let me listen to your heartbeat
so I can hear you be alive and healthy with me
and I'll let you listen to my calming voice
so you can relax and learn how to rely on someone
Then tell me, when you look into my eyes
what do you see?

Your StoryI'd much rather cry for youYour Story2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
'Cause my story is too painful to share
I'd much rather smile for you
'Cause my story is too painful to bare
So come here and I'll wrap my arms around you
Come here and I'll let your story shine
But after you share your story
Please don't ask me about mine
If only I could play the violin
I'd share my past through sorrowful chords
Vibrato on strings would be my voice
Fighting my demons with imaginary swords
Although I'm limited to words on paper
And the words aren't sung by a beautiful voice
These words make my story into a song
And this song confronts you with a choice
You can close your eyes
And pretend this is a fairytale
Pretend it's a meaningless story
That was never once true
Or you can open your eyes
And realise deep down
That the story isn't just about me
That you're the main character too
If you don't want to tell your story
As it is, spoken word to word
Turn your art into your voice
And you will always be heard
A picture speaks a thousand words

It sickens me
Again I'm face with this

This cruel desire
Burns its thoughts in my head
My soul cannot man-over
The dead floating ahead
This casket will not fail
It's my protector as we set sail
The ocean of blood
It sickens me
But I enjoy it
The way its done
The way the skin tares
I try to close my eyes
But something keeps them open
In agony I cry
As I lay there frozen
Its been so long on board
The sea is endless
There seems to be no shore
My pain is endless

The pain might dull
And the mind forget
But the heart
Will always remember

A true friend
That would be there
Thick and thin
And ever then
Try to do all they could do
To make me smile again
But I was dead wrong
I felt like an ugly bull frog
I was sad
When I got wind
That my very best friend
Had left me
For a new best friend
I wasn't warned
I wasn't told
I felt the world around me
Just turn bitter cold
I was out of the picture
For ever more
I was a forgotten
That got left on the floor.

If I was never to wake up
Would people even care
I wonder if a commotion would erupt
Would anyone even notice
That I wasn't alive
Would my mother even mourn me
Or could she guess that I wouldn't survive
Well I'm still not dead
But I can barely call this living
I feel like a corpse
That hasn't given up on breathing
But I wonder what would happen
If I was actually to die
Would anyone be bothered
Or care enough to cry
Maybe everyone's just used to
Me living like a corpse
So no one would be bothered
Or life change the slightest off of course
But if I would never wake up
There's no way to know what happens the next day
Won't know if people really care about me
But..maybe it's better off that way

let your nails draw blood
from material stretched too tight over shattered bones
sharpened points ripping at the seams
cutting away the last of his finger prints
embedded into your skin
When the ground starts to shiver
jump on the nearest passerby
feel for any grip possible
climb your way up his cracked spine
See the street that has trapped your memories under its pavement
feel them rush back to you in tsunamis, breaking the cities under your eyes
crush your feet into the sidewalk
don't look back
Look at the mangled face staring back at you
it's 4 a.m. and you can still see the names he called you
as if they were tattooed on to your face
stop your hand from reaching into the medicine cabinet
go back to bed
bury your pain in the sheets
Hang on to his smile
don't look down, don't let go
push yourself up and find safety in his eyes
no one will find you there
Sew bones back together with heart strings
it will never be the same but it's still something

What's Left To Do?Sometimes it is easier to walk awayWhat's Left To Do?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Especially when filled with sorrow and pain
From innocent words spoken from the heart
unknown to one, it tears you apart
Running away may seem easier first
than facing the oncoming storm so dark
but you leave behind much more
than pain, you leave behind love, too
You don't understand how I feel
I tried so hard, but it seems in vain
A veil of love blinds who I used to love
So I'll leave for their happiness
And a veil of tears is blinding you
Why else don't you see me fighting, too?
I gave you words, within them my heart
Don't let in be in vain, it'd tear me apart
I can't stay here where I don't belong
To have tales told, I would become undone
It would drown me in my sea of tears
I know this is something that I can't bear
And still I'm begging you not to leave
My tired hand will raise once more
the shield and sword I wield for you
It's not over yet, please don't give up
I am tired and worn to the bone
My wings have no life as I fal

Just a little more,
To feel no pain at all.
There's no tomorrow.
I lose myself in a dream
Of infinite numbness and fluorescent fixtures.
Bullets fly across bright ceilings
And heavy eyes fail to dodge.
One more ounce of venom
Closes my eyes.
This is why I waste my time,
So I will feel no pain
Forever I will feel no pain.

I wasn't supposed to run into him so conveniently.
I wasn't supposed to let my tears slip so easily.
I wasn't supposed to settle in his strong, able arms.
I wasn't supposed to feel safe against his soft midnight fur.
I wasn't supposed to be soothed by his deep, velvety voice.
I wasn't supposed to think that he might actually understand.
I wasn't supposed to be dazzled by his deep crimson eyes.
I wasn't supposed to blush at the sweet nothings he whispered in my ear.
I wasn't supposed to fall for anyone but my one true hero...
But I suppose I did.
And I fell hard.
His eyes were soft with understanding, though they usually were of solid fire.
How was it that my hero so easily neglected my love?
Yet he accepted it so easily.
How could that possibly be?
I didn't think about the past. My mistakes.
I didn't back away when he held me so gently to him.
I didn't want anything other than now.

Never have conversed

Tied to him.
Breaking your heart,
Was the only way
That I could mend his.
You can't always win,
But I knew you
Could live without me.
Keep On ShiningThis truth it has stabbed my heartKeep On Shining2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like a thousand needles slowly making their way
This love has made me fall apart
I'm broken glass, I'm the broken glass of man
The stabs gets harder every day
The needles they come closer to my heart
As I grow it tears me to pieces
I'm tattered cloth, thrown in the litter
As I try to recover and stand straight
I realize how crocked my back has been all this time
I can't walk straight
Cause my guilt and my shame, brings me down
But even thought through all this
I have still small light that shines to me every day
Cause even in my darkest days
It can still make me smile, it always wants me to live
I talk like this is all over
I talk is as I'm soon to die
But the truth is
I'm here to stay, just to watch that small light, every single day
Don't Give Up- PleaseEvery day, every minute, every second, every where you look, there will be someone there to push you down. Someone looking to make your life a living hell and screw up what could have been the best day of your life. In middle school and high school every thing that happens to you is such a big deal. She called you ugly, he called you stupid, they laughed at you when you tripped down the stairs. No one had the balls enough to be a decent person and help you. Your world seems to be crashing down around you, and all you can do is sit there and watch it come down, brick by bloody brick.

But that is not true. For every five people that hurt you, there is surely to be at least one friendly face in the crowd. Some one who has been there and understands the pain of those days. Someone who wants to help you. Some one to put there hand out and catch you when you fall. But you have to be able to trust enough to reach out. You have to put yourself out there

The world is your canvas.
Society is your paint brush.
The people are your choice of colours.
What kind of picture would you paint?
How would it differ from the image that is currently on show?
Would you go mad and rid yourself from all forms of restraint?
Just how far down the rabbit hole are you willing to go?
I ask because every portrait I create,
Is inspired by what is already in front of me.
So is it possible to even recreate,
Anything that the mind is not able to see.
The picture will always be the same
Because this life is all we know.
Where there is compassion there must be pain
Because it us who made it so.
