Smile In My Sleep
You can't see me
You can't tell me who I want to be
What can I do to
That I am all you'll ever need?
And I start to understand
And I smile in my sleep
I watch you Mr. Death
I know what you want
Dying is you're greatest
Torture, you taunt
Me with life
I smile knowing
You can't get me this time
So forgive the misgivings
I've tried so hard to find you
I even see you in my dreams
You're face turned blurry and hued
And I waved goodbye to Mr. Death
As I breathed my last breath
As I smile in my sleep

Literature is emotions unfurled.
Literature is the mind's paintbrush.
Literature is a heart's soft touch.
Literature is imagination.
Literature is sleep deprivation.
Literature is my greatest bane.
Literature is my favourite game.
Literature is no simple fling.

As if all the cartilage from my being
Has been used to paste together an arthropod heart
I’ve white washed my pupils and folded them
Into hazy envelopes and sent them off to strangers

Put moles on that greenside,
Then sprayed weed killer on it all…
Will it still be greener?

Fleecy white skin,
Ripped tainted flesh.
The colors rise and pool
Over pleated tired mesh.
The voices rise to screams
As they fade to strangled-muffled yelps.
The sharpness cleans the frail,
Separates the weak from the strong
One voice among the masses
Calls so divine,
Defined by cacophonous unanimity
From high up.
"Kill them all!"

Ring around the corners
As dew drops and glitter
Sparkle towards the color.
Like the spring turns to summer
With a rose on each cheek.
Like a pixie she flitters
Back and forth
Having a never-fading smile
Etched on her face.
Small gifts of kindness
As true to the heart,
Always last the longest:
Always feel the best.

Corrupted by the ways of freedom
You broke out of bondage
And dined on the flesh of decency.
Rusted chains adorn your wrists
Shackles jangling at your knees.
Dribbling blood from the corners of your mouth
Your nails dig further into blasphemy.

Interlocking with a passionate kiss.
Latten within a fear to show desire:
A mimic, a glare, a lusty fire.
Who needs love?
Who needs a reason to be the Devil?
You're a bastard to hope
That the switch will be flipped.
But I see your love
Just all the same.

Sorry to all those watching me... expecting me to spam their pages with posts. I have been busy the past coup0le days putting together and programming my new computer. YAY!! So until the novelty of the newness of my new plaything wears off, I'm gonna have a hard time posting stuff. cause I'm that geeky... I hope none of you will look at me with murdering eyes...
I will say this though... I have looked through a couple dozen poems I wrote within the last week or so and I plan on typing some of those up. I might post them on here, but I first will be vying for publication at Darkling, Gargoyle, Devils Blossom, Eclectica, Drunken Boat, Magma Poetry, Necrology Shorts, Drown In My Own Fears, Champagne Shivers, and Dead Mule. They're all publications, either online or physical. Wish me luck.
Cauldron of MadnessCauldron of MadnessCauldron of Madness9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
From a Chinese Folk Tale
China has a folk tale
They tell of a king
His subjects drank from a witch's cauldron
Everyone went raving mad
He loved them too much to ignore them
Finally, he drank too
I live among simple[-minded] folk
They drink from a cauldron made from silver and gold
Every day, every week, they are mad
They display their insensibility before me
I breathe deep and try to wait
I cannot relate
Then I go to my room
I drink from my own cauldron
My wine is sweeter and smoother
It never maddens me like them.

Pretending not to notice me,
But I know you see me.
I wonder why you hate me
When we used to be so happy with each other
I wonder what changed
And how I can change it back.
But no matter how much I hope,
I know I can't change anything
All my friends ask what's wrong
But they can never understand
How crushed I am inside
And what makes it worse is
That I see you everyday
Pretending I'm not even there.
I try to get over you
But every time I build a wall
And think I'm over you,
You come back and knock it down
And I have to start all over again.
I wonder what it is about you
That makes me so dra

Never to come back or think about our time together
But I saw you the other day
And you took my breath away.
It took so long to get over you and I used to hate you
But after this I have mixed emotions when I see you.
I can't deny that I'm attracted to you anymore
That I don't dream about us together
That I don't wish I could go back and fix things
But I do, and that kills me
I've worked so hard to hate you
And then you look at me, and I'm back to square one
And all the armor I've put on just crumbles away.
I have so many mixed emotions swirling in me,
I don't know how to feel about you anymore.

In the empty spaces between matter
to the point where atoms are galaxies apart
there is no worry
there is no beauty
there is only blackness
and it possesses the knowledge
to manipulate motion
unequivocally invoking causality
spiraling down through the realm of quantum reality
where aeons are nothing
and by unraveling all the imperceptible spectrum's of darkness
we are created
so it would make sense that time is not but an algorithm
set in place to solve spatial differentiation
so that we may understand
but it is just an illusion
like the empty spaces between matter

In the darkened lane, one night,
When every living soul has slept
When the pale crescent moon is the only light,
And all the tears have been wept,
A pair of lovers into the lane had crept
To expose the emotions deep in their hearts
And vow to stay in love regardless of the cost.
In that lane, beneath the moon,
'Nether a whisper, nor a thought,
Nor a kiss, nor a look' was lost.

I dread the night
As each day ticks by
Ever so slowly.
My wicked little lie
All hold trapped stasis.
I'm in a never-ending dream,
The pain of rot.
The slow death of each second to pass,
Never gaining back that misused moment
As I slowly die.
The trickle of time
As it flows,
Like an ever flowing river
After the monsoon.
All are caught in its path
And none can escape from its grasp.
No one lives forever.
Including the real and unreal,
Animate and inanimate.
And I except to meet death with open and welcoming arms
But not now,
I'm just closer by a day.

Life isn't about winning;
It's about love and friendship,
Life isn't about hatred and grief;
It's about being with those who care for and love you,
Life isn't about playing the cards right;
It's about who you play it with,
If life isn't what you think it is,
Maybe someone else does,
And they can share what they see;
Life is a mystery;
No one knows when and how to solve it,
Life is like a math problem: it's hard but easy.
It has it's ups and downs.
Life is like chess;
You can go anywhere but nowhere at all.
It's about who you take the journey with!

underneath the eternal waves of blue.
I will swim and sway with the rhythm
of the sea's heartbeat, the ocean's lullaby.
The water caresses my skin and ruffles my hair
swings me about in it's tight embrace,
the light plays through the water
tracing patterns of warmth across my skin.
When a storm brews on the surface,
I shall be safe, tucked underneath in the folds of the waves
tumbling, turning, and flying through the liquid emerald
disturbed only by the violent flashing lights that momentarily illuminate the sky.
Nighttime approaches and the seas are calm once more,

Lying for Beasts
I walked to where I had previously left Icemoon, in the little glade a few leagues from the cave and many miles from the Dragon Academy, the schooling place I had founded with Garnet and Judah for training and educating future Dragon Keepers.
So far, work on the old dwarfish castle was slow but steady. The black walls kept the place hidden at night and menacing during the day. The only trouble we had had so far with outsiders was a little herd of goats and their shepherd. Not much of the threat we expected.
We didn't have any new young keepers to train yet. Judah an
