Secretly TogetherBehind closed doors we fall in each other's arms,Secretly Together5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Like finding consolation in trust of our dreams.
But only in evenings,
When all the thorns have been shed away.
And comes the steady glow of the moon reflecting in your eyes,
The steady warmth I can feel glowing from your skin.
However when you blink,
The world seems to waver at its brink of life.
Still nothing seems close to describing this moment of us together,
Just another of the many we will probably forget.
But like the millions of love stories left unread,
It's as beautiful as any love could be tonight.

Please don't cry.
You gave your wings
So he could fly.
Yet ungrateful -
He flew away,
You begged him stay.
He speaks his words
And storms through life
He's given up
And given in,
As his worlds
Spins around him.
No matter what
You yell and scream
He sees you only
As a dream,
For he knows
That if he wakes
His ebbing faith
May crack and break,
And even though
You care for him
He's hated you
Since the beginning.
At least, he claims
That that is true,
But really he
Just misses you.
He is scared
To face belief
And love, because
For all his grief
He can't admit
That through his life-
Through all the years
Of (im)mortal strife-
He has felt guilt
And joy and pain,
And aches for you
To call his name
In a way that
Shows you will
Forgive him and
Save him from Hell;
For long ago-
When he stood tall-
He feared he'd Fall.

On the ground lay bloody feathers
A war that tore a family apart
heavenly being you fell too far.
the hands that carved your wings strikes you down
why such hate for these beings that your brothers protect?
is it because they bleed and kill in your father's name?
Sitting in a forsaken palace your hate grows,
for jealousy consumes even the most pure of heart
why does your face twist from pain and anger?
You were once beautiful as the sun itself.
But now in this hot paradise of evil you rot and turn cold
Beautiful creature look how far you've fallen,
deceitful lies become your soul and murder fill your blackened eyes
Devils and demons surround your burning throne.
Your darkest day has hold at last
King of a new heaven you punish crimes of life
Hear their pleas for mercy as you rip the flesh from bone
This is your punishment as well.
Never wanted to truly leave your sky filled home
Your crying can be heard by the humans you hate
Never dieing is the rotting beast that you've become

Tell me, can you do it?
Can you keep the disgust
from your face?
Can you believe
of all things,

don't you throw me
with a heart of

still standing alone.
But make no mistake

Feel the love in the back of my mind.
It's all I can do to will it to last forever,
The fleeting moments when I feel there's only one heart of us together.
And as we held each other skin to skin,
Touching your delicate hand over my heart,
I wonder just how close you can feel,
Of the millions of little reasons I love you.

Beautiful on the outside,
Broken to the core -
Stand up, talk straight!
Don't say anymore.
He no longer prays
For he no longer cares.
Wanted or unwanted;
You'll never see him there.
The dullness of the moment
Has finally got to him.
His never-ending story
Has nowhere to begin.
And that gateway to heaven?
He's convinced he's seen it:
Claims his mind and his body
From the heart of the pit.
Between Heaven And HellHell and heaven now as one,Between Heaven And Hell8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Ghostly revelation now begun,
Smell the fires of burning glory,
A third testament written with a twisted story.
Oh can you hear the angels sing?
Their shrieks of pain from fiery winds,
And can you hear the demons cry,
Lights from heaven now blinds their eyes.
The hands of the lord are not so forgiving,
To weak to break this sinful living,
The wars of ages still raging on,
In a world where peace does not belong,
With hell on earth and fire in sky,
Lay down your weapons and watch life die..

Through the sky
On frostbitten wings,
The blissful days
When his brother would sing.
On distant lullabies
He wishes to forget.
All of his losses
Tangle in the melody
But were they worth it?
He shamelessly begs,
Not God, but the stars
For just one more chance.
But his pleas go unanswered
For he's lost all hope
In this everlasting dance.

But a heart does have a beat,
and it beats for you, my love.
Because I Miss YouI fell asleep last night with your letters by my side.Because I Miss You5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
There must have been a hundred pages,
Scented with the love I've been dreaming of every day.
So it is true that I read all of them before sleep sometimes,
Just once in a little while,
Slowly like the way I long to caress your lips.
And the softness of your touch haunts my every dream,
Like this longing I have of you,
Burning ever so precariously in this moment of my heart.

a passing thought;
a passionate ambition.
A dream can be
a battle fought;
a superficial mission.
A dream can be
a driving force;
a forgiving comfort.
A dream can be
a thriving source;
a deceitful consort.
A dream can thrill you;
drive you or kill you.
Beware of this, dreamers
and Dream On.
Reflection of an Anorexic Mirror Mirror,Reflection of an Anorexic5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
On the wall
Who is the thinnest
One of all
I know it's not me
I'm just too fat
Long and tall
Who is the skinniest
One of all
Stand up straight
Suck in your gut
Then I may not hate
Clear and bright
Please don't watch
As I starve tonight
Disgusting and lifeless
Without another guess
Don't show me
Bent over, wishing
For what I can't be
I'm stuck in this body
With food to fear
Broken and shattered
Don't stare at me
With this body battered
With blood running
Down my curled fist
Stupid mirror, you had it coming!
New Best FriendI met a new best friend today,New Best Friend3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We never ran out of things to say.
It seems I have known her my whole life.
We chatted about life's constant strife.
I told her all my lost hopes, broken dreams,
She has been there too, It seems.
She listens quietly, I love her so much,
And my heart she managed to see and touch.
We stand there, choked up and crying,
Then I found out I was lying.
I reach out to draw her near,
It hits me that my best friend is only a mirror..
