Eyes of TimeSmiles brought upon my lips,
at the mere thought of you.
Tears well up in my eyes,
as you make my heart flutter.
One time, after the other,
you never cease to amaze.
Your soul is a remedy
to this sadness of mine.
At every word you speak,
a light will shine on my mind.
Though far apart, so dear to me.
You alone keep me sane.
So I beg of you, to never leave,
to stay by my side as I by yours.
Forever together we will blossom,
as seen through the eyes of time.

in this lonesome world of tears.
In another, not.
No physical warmth,
She's so wonderful.
Endless swarming thoughts,
of a beloved angel.
Her bright eyes haunt me.
Have this single wish,
of holding her close to me.
Forever a dream.
In land of wonders,
we meet and smile undisturbed.
Share a hug, a kiss.
But once I wake up,
gone she is, so far away.
Want eternal dreams.

Though no wishes to give,
to the nightly stars.
I wonder curiously,
how life might be,
but with no answer,
only one place to go.
My head on my pillow,
and eyes closed,
Off I go
- to wonderland.

The stars swirl around.
Though close they seem.
An eternity in between.
In an ocean of darkness.
With every twist and turn.
Nothing but black to see.
Only cold and empty.
Though close, so far.
No stars for the moon.
Only a canvas of innocence.
Love and warmth is absent.
As the moon, am I.
Alone in this world.
No shared emotions.
Only heartache, tears.

hand in hand we walk.
Step by step, below the moon,
we do not need to talk.
Content smiles, with happy tears,
a peck on wet cheeks.
Towards the end, the bright horizon,
for hours, days and weeks.
Black and bright, dark and light,
happiness we stalk.
Together forever, with common goal,
hand in hand we walk.

Fighting life itself,
Existence tie us down,
Breaking free is never possible.
Without thought nor care we live.
Brushing away the trouble,
The mind acting as a prison,
We kill ourself slowly but surely.
A quest for light and happiness.
Seeking forever the good,
Not one trace or clue,
The dream is just a nightmare.
Drown away the endless sorrow.
Forget it forever,
If only for a day,
We will never escape this hell.
"Why" is the eternal question.
Why do we go on,
Why don't we stop,
The answer is simple, death.
As the only possible relief.
A way out of all this hate.
We should take it,
All is better,

but can't you open those eyes?
I'm a wandering ghoul, can you see,
that I'm all alone, as time flies?
Unwanted and unloved, I am unseen,
as my feet steps, inches apart.
My soul is broken, sliced up clean,
by entity of a life without heart.
Striding silent, the everdark streets,
imagining unthinkable things.
From my dreams, light and dark meets.
In my mind, to me an angel sings.

It kills the sorrow,
as it kills the brain.
The heart beats in vain.
It beats for lost love,
and beats in deep pain.
The girl hopes, to no gain.
Fights to stay awake,

Old FriendHello there again, my old friendOld Friend1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I didn't invite you, nor I ever do
How long will you stay?
Or will you ever go away?
Have you been here all along?
I thought you were gone,
Will you prove me wrong?
As long as you're here,
Don't come in too near
Keep a safe distance,
Find your own place
At the edge of the room
At least when I'm all alone,
I know I can find you at my home
Always by my side,
Willing to be my guide
Like an unsound ghost,
Providing company when I need it most
But I wish you would let me be,
And give back my eyes to see
I'm falling when with you,
How do I know what's true?
Perhaps I gave you an invitation,
And it wasn't just your manipulation
But never would I ask for such an intrusion,
That brings nothing more than empty seclusion
No matter how far I push you away,
I fear with me you will always stay
Whenever I think it's going to end,
There you are again, my old friend
A Love LostTwo lives intertwineA Love Lost1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
To become one as young love settles over the heart
I'm reminded of those long nights
Lying out in the heath under the stars
Now I am lost
Broken and sick without you
They all thought I should have gone right along with you
I still might
I won't eat
I can't sleep
My health is no longer a concern
It's after midnight I heard the bells chime
But I'm here at your grave
Slipping to my knees to leave you another flower
Before I lay down to sleep in a glade
Burrowed deep into my memories
As the fog settles around me like wisps of smoke
I'll rise at dawn
And sneak away before I'm caught
Leaving behind my love
And my guilt
But I'll be back tomorrow
To beg, once more, for forgiveness
Since it was my mistake
That left you in this cold lonely place

things beyond imagination
and wonders far more complex
than anything of any mind.
I too wish the impossible
that we can all imagine
but never even dream to achieve
in this puny little life of ours.
I wish to fly high in the sky
and to swing a wand to conjure
spectacular sights and senses
that no one has felt before.
I wish to move hearts
of those that make this world
a better place to live in
and a better place to die in.
I have this wish of happiness,
granted for each good soul
and each warmhearted spirit
that may reside out there.
I wish to accompany the lonely
as well as lift the chin
of a crying little girl
who sits by herself with a dolly.
I wish to be a bringer of joy
for those in need of such,
to every struggling body
and every hardworking mind.
All I ever wished in this life
was to bearer of good for all
that in this life fight
for a tiny speck of light.

Skin And BoneI haven't been eating lately,Skin And Bone1 year ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
My apatite's just not there,
If mother knew, she'd be upset greatly,
But i can't find it in my heart to care.
Food just doesn't sound appealing,
It's not like I'm trying to lose weight,
Could it be the stress that I'm feeling?
Or is it what's on the plate?
Even when I am, I'm just too lazy,
And although there's food, there's nothing to eat.
This is making me crazy!
I really want something sweet!
Why my stomach's acting up, I just don't know,
But I wish it would leave me alone,
If it doesn't soon I'll be a Jane Doe,
Because I'm withering away to nothing but skin and bone.

Shove it far down.
Let its edges rip you open.
Devastate the mind in endless pain.
Slice up the throat as you cringe it down.
Ravage the lungs as you inhale the burning smoke.
Pierce the heart, every needle prick ever the more painful.
Consume it and give under, let it take over your very soul.
Let the pain be your guideline, avoid it, fear it.
Gag it up, red blood flowing out your mouth.
Kill it. Burn it. Smash it. Destroy.
Let go of it, throw it away.
Beg for forgiveness.
Nothing like the First LoveThere's nothing like the first loveNothing like the First Love1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And those early signs of bliss
Where heartache's still unheard of
And all you lust for is a kiss
When we're still so innocent and pure
Think with love, this world, we cure
But we're just so immature
Gave our hearts away without really being sure
There is nothing like the first love
No one could ever take their place
We may come across pure beauty
Only to find perfection in their face
And the thickness of their lips
Combine to form a perfect smile
Leave our hair standing on its tips
Nothing like the first love
Even if one day we grow apart
We will always keep the memories
And a special place for them inside our hearts
The PossessionAt night I lie awake living in my nightmare,The Possession1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
With his hideous face with eyes cold and cruel,
Sitting inside the darkness he dares to call my dreams.
He just looks at me with his sinister stare,
And I can define his smirk devouring silent screams.
At night I cry asleep dying in my nightmare,
With his insidious voice with fangs sharp and surreal,
Waiting inside the blackness he bids to stall my breath.
He just smiles at me with his grimacing glare,
And I can touch his desire torturing daylight's death.
At night I die alone haunting in my nightmare,
With his riotous visage with ears bold and brutal,
Listening inside the stillness he stops to maul my soul.
He just laughs at me with his salacious snare,
But I cannot breach his reason breaking risk's rule.
LimitsLimits, they exist for a reasonLimits1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
We need them, to live, to enjoy.
To understand what we have,
And the gifts we are granted.
Because one must remember.
That you can only embrace,
As far as your arms can reach.
What is beyond, will come.
Smile for what you have.
For the friends by your side.
Forget what you cannot reach.
Hug those who are you close.
Don't break yourself in struggle.
By trying to reach further.
Stay safe with what you know.
And your loved ones will too.
One can only take so much.
Never try to overburden.
Remember those by your side.
They are for you, as you for them.
Limits, don't cross them.
Let them expand by themselves.
Everything will be perfect.
Enjoy the trip from here to there.

torn just at the folds,
Star shaped boxes with your hopes
In corners they do hold.
As the edges start caving in
And the sides start to explode
The heat of passion is locked inside
Against the outside cold.
Fold your life in paper dreams
And send it up in smoke
Then as you watch the flames die down
Inhale- let yourself choke
For what good is your life, if frail
You place it next to heat
That burns all it encompasses-
Only destruction can you seek.
Instead I pray- fold gently
Your frame in paper cranes
And send them off on nature's breath-
To let them die would be a shame.
