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

Do you remember the blue summer sky?
Free of clouds and full of dreams
Our lives were so wonderful
All day long together with friends free of all worries
Do you remember the bikes that we used to ride?
I remember riding till the very end of the sunlight
All those times we fall and then got back up again
I remember all of it all the fun that was to be together
Do you remember the nights?
Nights full of games of hide and seek
And the fireflies were the only thing that shined in the dark
Also the sound of the crickets that echoes till the dawn
I remember all of that with sorrow in my heart
The way we were yo

Look at yourself!!Look!
You're the brightest star of them all.
See,darling,you're the most beautiful one,
But still,you chose to fall.
Your wings shattered,
And your soul went black,
Did you ever regret it,my dear?
You keep it silent,there's no way back.
You left heaven behind you,
Do you miss it? I know I do,
I miss the innocence and the glitter,
The sweetness of the clouds and the truth.
I miss my wings,
Yes,honey,I lost them too.
See,when you fell,
I jumped. I fell with you.
I just wish you'd take me in your embrace,
Hold me tight and never let me go
Your sinful lips on mine,
Send me the wind and I'll know.

Blue LotusBlue Lotus9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Coming up from Aswan with his catch,
he tacks the course of his dhow
along the Nile of her dark eyes,
her long hair,
the narcotic of blue water lilies,
her lotus pose facing both
the rising, and the setting sun,
the young fisherman begs to know
as he sings upward with his might
and his desire, into the sail
that catches the crosswind--
What is your name, scented one,
in the smoke that rises
from the shores of the cataracts,
where I bring to you my bounty!
He peers into the azure above,
waiting for her answer to fill his sail,
calling out once more as his teeth gleam--
Ma huwa 'ismuki?

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
Unnatural Decay Under a Strange ChurchUnnatural Decay Under a Strange Church6 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
There's a white shelled transvestite ladybug crawling across the word "Underwear" on a Craigslist browsing computer screen in the public library.
Then it flew away into a bee's nest in the attic. Here is your epitaph: nettle tincture honey is a sweat curse and friendly lies are a pained dessert. Pretend that bee sting poison is an opium syringe, ladybug.
But the scarlet letter was her bloody joke when a gay social assassin posed as rogue busy bee named Ahab, crouched about to shatter a burgundy shelled secret like a harpoon through a stained glass window.
Across the library St. Asmodeus felt a chilled dagger through his lead filled heart

Over burdening your soul,

How! Could you do this to me...?!(Can't you see I'm bleeding?)
Now! I can't even breathe...!(Oh no, my heart's not beating)

How! Could you do this to me...?!
Now! I can't even breathe.

Oh the never ending rain. The clouds so gloomy and depressing and the world is just stopped at bay. The gray clouds consume the skies while the mists surround all that exist. The sunshine never touches the pale faces of the people. Their heads are down, their umbrellas are spread and the rain, the rain won't stop falling from the angry heavens. The world is running on slow motion and heading towards upcoming end. No passion in the movements, no life the breath of the stereotypical nature of humans and no fire burns in their eyes. It seems like the world is stopped in one place and it won't move any further than this. And the day, t

This world is filled with love
And that is so good
And everyone wants to know he has someone besides him
Because no one wants to be alone in this world
But I was alone all this time
Alone staying in the cold four walls room
Stuck in front of the computer
Waiting for that one to come
But as time passed by no one came
And I was alone
All the couples were looking so happy together
And the birds were singing their love songs
I had no one to love
I had no one to love me
Alone I stay away
Alone in my thoughts
But then you came and gave me hand
Lifting me up from the ground

We are all people of this world but there is still hate
And it lives in each and every one of us
Just waiting to be triggered and to come out
And when it comes out it can never be stopped
That hate is created by the mass media
By the religion and other methods of control
They tell us what we should hate and never accept
They teach the youngsters all that is wrong in their point of view
But what is wrong being the person you are?
Is it wrong to be ourselves?
To express what we think and feel, what we love and cherish
Is that really all wrong with us?
Are we really that different in your eyes?

Children who love you and sing to you
We sing our sorrow songs at night hoping you can hear them
Hoping you can hear us and look at us with your beautiful light

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 twinkl

I am alone, shunned.

but now feels foreign and outlandish;
They're just words. I don't have to let them get to me.

Alone riding on the eternal road.
Home is left behind burning in flames.
Screams of the city echo across the dry land.
The sky is red as blood turns into black smoke.
The city burns and screams in agony.
The sunset is drowned in the blood of thousands.
The road keeps going on but I can still hear.
I hear the screams of all those sinners.
They scream for redemption.
Begging for death.
I gave it to them.
I've burned their bodies and souls.
They are pure from all the sins.
But now they scream since they die.
The flesh burns and it becomes black.
The bones break and turn into ash.

You need to see ahead of yourself
Reach over the sun out
You've already seen how to be broken
Reach over the sun so
You can be ready soon
Reach over the sun out
Believe in your tears that soaked your skin
I can never see what's ahead of me
A never-ending yearning crossroad
Is flesh really worth to hold on to?
I touch it and it always feels so cold
I've never seen a blue sky
I wonder if it's searching
For every broken dreambound
On what life has left for us
There's something about blue that attaches me
To the point of crying scarlet
Its illusion sometimes in a deeper shade
Leaving me yearning for what's left of loving

The rain slowly draining from me, almost teasing me to follow.
Life seeping away, oozing.
The cut is deep and tells one tail, a grim one. Nor the story of which people will remember me for.
I want to be known, not for this though, there are no regrets for this, my reasons are just, they seem right to my logic, it is a mental pain killer that will only last as long as I.
My thought's slow, they wither like the weather, they blow away with the slight breeze that blows from the door.
