AliceWhen black has stained the infinite blue,
And sleep compels me to retreat
I grin upon the thought of my blanket's sweet embrace
As I slay the dim candle I earlier lit
Shortly, I am severed from all
To see light once more
And then I spot her, grinning widely,
Composing giggles of four
She invites me in her welcoming home,
Her hands, opened wide toward me
She tells me how fun it is inside,
She tells me it's something I'd love to see
I grin in anticipation,
And lift my hands to reach her
I think of all the wonders I'd see
Stretching my arms further
Then suddenly we are afar in countless kilometers
When we were only a foot away
And her form slowly fades into darkness
With no goodbye to say
Once again, she abandons me
Behind the cold iron bars, she leaves me
She dwells in dreams,
While I am chained to harsh reality

So I'll write some more.
These words are filler,
So I don't feel truly bad,
For writing briefly.

In a Haiku, how clever!

Daughter of DeathI have seen death;Daughter of Death2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I've watched someone's
That last sigh of life,
The submissive gasp
Of a body's strife.
I have smelt decay;
I've sensed someone's
That stench of loss,
That everyone has to
I have heard screams;
I've witnessed someone's
That grief of hope,
Around a throat
Like a hangman's rope.
I have touched despair;
I've felt someone's
That empty shell,
Telling me to go and
Rot in hell.
Never ChangeTrust and honestyNever Change2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
is such a rare commodity
rarely given for trade
since all can be betrayed
But here I am asking you
knowing such fragility
Like a beam of light through the storm
where we break what is the norm
Asking you to be always true
Asking you to be a real friend
someone that could always be relied on
Not only at the start but also at the end
And I know you've been hurt
more than we could ever count
But even when there's all sort
of people that has an evil bout
Never give up or give in
I want to protect you from their taint
cause I already have seen
the bad picture they would paint
Making you from being hyper and happy to sad and blue
turning your warm sunshine into a darker hue
I can't have that cause you're one of a kind
In a world where good people are hard to find

Not at this time.
In a sea of silence,
She's losing her mind.
The words are flowing
out of reach.
The ocean roars
and beats the rocks.
It plays a bass
that will not stop.
She bobs on the surface
then falls underneath.
Slowly she rises,
Finding her feet.
The pencil lifts
and finds its way to her lip.
She zones out
and chews at its tip.
A lightning bolt strikes,
Her pencil flies to the page.
It scribbles crazily,
Almost in a rage.
She can't speak,
Not at this time.
In a sea of words,
She's finding her mind.

Disaster struck upon the Earth
Chaos spread like a wildfire
And the humanity split
Turning on one another
Soon nothing was left but the bare dust of the burned
The virus spread and killed everyone
And in time the dead came back to life
Hunting the living and punishing them for their sins
The Armageddon came and we couldn't escape
The world fell in to the dust of destruction
With each day the living decay as the dead arise
With each moment the remains of humanity fade
The sun blazes over the dying lands
The dry rivers and burned fields
Only the road keeps on going forever
Only the road keeps us alive
We move from town to town looking for hope
Looking for survivors in the ruins of the old world
But with each day the hope for finding anything living fades
And all the resources draw near their end
I don't know how much we can make it
Our morals and our spirits are slowly being crushed
I try to act tough for the people but it's unbearable
It's unbearable to know that all of our belov

it happens every day as ya know
at school, in the circle of friends,

of course, insulters circle excepted
bullying is on the rise
like the rise of the nones
and faced by many people like you
they come from all walks of life,
races, genders, cultures and ages
so angst-riven, panic-stricken, spine-chilling,
pain-ridden and, of course, empty-handed
nightmarish all night long
from day to day down to the present day
you went into a deep depression
assailed by fear and dark thoughts
you try to settle down the silence
you try to fall asleep, bothered of awakening
you wish to have a good cry on somebody's shoulder
envy, higher education, other appearance
a handicap - physical or mental?
a weirdo, a nerd, a geek or whatever
a talent, a smother-love
delicacy of feelings
love to the reading or writing
avoidance of vulgar language

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

HouseYou see that old house up there?House2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Standing there up on that small hill
It's the one with that old rocking chair
When you look at it, do you feel a chill?
A chill running down your spine,
Striking you with a sense of fear.
The sight is something you can't define
But the sight alone will make your eyes tear.
The history behind the house is lost,
The people in town, do not yet know.
How the house had survived the frost.
Now there always sits a crow.
A crow sitting on the old rocking chair,
Guarding the house like it's owner did.
In the crow's eye is a small tear,
Looking where it's owner hid.

the sound of migrating birds
swirling the pale morning sky like
buzzing clouds of flies;
i see through sleep-drunk
eyes behind curtained windows
cackling like hyenas and
camouflaged into trees
(i mistake them for leaves
until they erupt like
enormous black butterflies
fleeing a small child, wings
strong against the wind,
and, soon, tiny spots
on the horizon)
The Porcelain GirlThe dust rises in smoky spirals from the ancient shelfThe Porcelain Girl2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And ten thousand books lie unused, shrouded in stealth
And the girl is sitting by herself.
She has no time for the novels or history books
Her phone is her paramour and she gives no looks
To those who gawk at her.
Heaven help me, she sits like porcelain, about to break
In the black of her hair and clothing, she pools lake-
Tranquil in the seat, absorbed in her own reflection.
The distant roar of the winding road
And the sad fly-whining of the violin player on the corner
Break the sultry silence of the library and goad
The happy man to be a mourner.
Aye. I've seen her before
In Maude Gonne, too distant to be a friend
And too pretty to be a whore.
So I swallow my pride and pass her by
And she does likewise the same to me.
Night WandererThe maples have caught fire,Night Wanderer2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
the hickories melted into gold.
The sun became a pale white disk,
letting the world fall into cold.
My heart has made a hollow,
to be filled when you come home.
But until that day arrives,
the barren wilderness I'll roam.
The leaves will make a bed for me,
where I will rest my weary bones.
Faded sun will turn to silver moon,
and stars appear as flecks of stone.
Underneath that velvety Fall sky,
I'll wait for wishes to come true.
Underneath that clear Autumn sky
I'll find peace until I find you.
5. RotI hang down from the gallows5. Rot2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
In life I was too callow
So here I hang
No dirge you sang
I'll never join the hallows
I hang down from the gallows
My body became fallow
The maggots dine
On flesh of mine
I'll never join the hallows
I hang down from the gallows
A skeleton so shallow
It's the crows' joy
Me to destroy
I'll never join the hallows
I lay next to the gallows
Long-since my skull is hollow
The rest of me
Where could it be?
I never joined the hallows
DoubtsI failed and tried so hard in vainDoubts2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To keep you safe from hurt and pain
My promise to put myself in harm's way
For you was twisted right around that day
I was too weak to keep it right
I was too weak and did not fight
Now you left and how could you not
When suffering is all you've got
A hunt breaks loose, a pursuit out of love
Your chasers don't see you run above
All from the love they want to show
While you seek just loneliness now
Can I dare to help you again
When I brought you nothing but pain
Will they understand why I hold them back
Or simply think love for you I do lack?
I want to help you but don't dare
Since all might think that I don't care

Stealing my light.
Slowly flickering away,
In the endless night.
As the darkness creeps,
Fear cloaks over me.
And with blackness goes my sanity.
My humanity drips away
And I smile my sharpened teeth,
Glinting as the light comes back with a black fire.
Because you've now expired.
Once I remember,
When the fire was lit,
'Twas a ray of hope,
But now it's forgotten.
A broken star in his sea of heaven.

Alone in your thoughts
How many others have stand where you are today?
Just wait for me now
A safe return is all I want
Break from all these chains
All these roads that I have taken led me to nowhere
Left me here standing at life's edge
There is just one thing left to ask, just wait for me
Broken mirrors can't hide from my shame
It has been years
Shattered into a million pieces
Wait for me there is still time
I haven't gotten back on my feet
I have hit rock bottom
The only way now is to go up
Please wait for me
But I will ask you once more,
Will you wait for me?
Only time could tell
Down into a deep spiral
There is no turning back
Just driving myself into a grave
Won't you wait for me?
Will there be a hand to save?
Or just turn a blind eye to my call?
And I shall wait for your answer
Superluv ~ AmericaAlfred looked up from his locker to see you with your excuse of a boyfriend Francis. The way he treated you made his blood boil... the way every man in your life treated you made his blood boil. Your father abused you and when he wasn't beating you saying "filthy brat! You are a mistake!" and abusing you in physical and mental ways, Francis was. Alfred remembered when he and you were little, how when you would always come to him for comfort. The very sight of you covered in cuts and bruises still haunted him and he couldn't get rid of it. He promised that he would protect you form that day on and never let anyone hurt you again. However... you ended up with Francis. Why? because your father only let you date HIM because he abused you also. He didn't protect you.. he wasn't your hero. Slamming his locker door shut in anger, he turned and walked away not seeing the sad look you cast his waySuperluv ~ America2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
