in the mist, i feel bliss, i just cant resist the fact that you still exist.
as i cry on the floor, in my chest i feel sore, i wont take this anymore.

ScarsI have already told you of the burns covering meScars4 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
The tale of my scars is not something easy to foresee
Sadly the scars are more noticeable to the eye
Fear not though, their stories are in a steady supply
I admit some of these marking are self inflicted
That does not leave my ability to share restricted
Those particular markings are from darker days
Although they have past, their memory stays
The greatest of these marks runs up my left forearm
The sight of it might cause many to recoil in alarm
Though it pleases me to see that with time it has faded
My confidence and self respect, is no less degraded
Though this marking is just a single imperfection
Coupled with the others makes for a gruesome collection
Before...Before...3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Before I met you
There was no meaning to life
No reason to smile
No laughter or joy
What was was fleeting
Not even to be remembered
There was nothing
Only empty sadness
Then you came along
You changed everything
You broke through my defences with a single smile
You captured my heart with a single glance
You changed my world
You show me what it is like to feel the warmth of the sun on my face
The gentleness of a cool breeze against my skin
The lovingkindness of your gentle touch
The music of your voice
What it truly feels like
To love and be loved
We found love in the empty spaces
We found it in each other
I love you
Is It So UnfairIs It So Unfair3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
is it so wrong
that I want to find a love
like in the movies
the kind you wish for
in day dreams
but in this society
our dreams were torn by reality
how can I believe this
that my love has been restricted
and denied and scorned and battered
and by who?
people who claim to know the ways of the heart
and believe they can create the best world for us
by creating a living hell for us
do they not know
that love isn't about the body
making her smile when she's sad
and hugging her
burying my head in the crease of her shoulder
laughing loudly and holding hands
it's when I can't live with out her
I'd do anything for her
isn't that right?
love isn't bound by holy words
or disdained looks
its a freedom that burns and yearns
for the chance with another
who can see what you see
and help share the burden of this world
it's the love of her
accepting me for who I am
what I am, a woman
so to all those out there
with butchered voices
and broken eyes
who have to quietly hide
don't let society
Two-FacedI amTwo-Faced4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The woman the child
Trailing like wedding gowns
With shoes too high, going toward the sky
Covered over in clouds
Who do they see in the mirror?
A child with too much time
The sunshine, the moon
Always in hiding
Day after day, fading away
Afraid to stay more than half a day
What do the people see?
A moon with nothing to say
The magma, the sea
Bursting at the rocks
Splashing and burning, never turning
Exploding at the extreme
What do the scientists see?
The sea that never learned
Unable to function
Not choosing, just losing
Only destined to carry the shame
Who does the teacher see?
The student who's nothing new
The Myself, the I
One thing then the other
Having to lose, to think before I do
Not seeing who I am
What do I see?
One person with the face of Two.
The Voices In My HeadThe Voices In My Head3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The voices in my head
Whisper sweet words in my mind
Words of death and lonliness
Words that my black heart beat to
I hear them all the time
Clawing their way at my thoughts
Singing to me in the night
Begging me to join them
They smash their way through my brain
Leaving a trail of despair
I hold onto a shred of hope
That they quickly rip away from me
I gradually begin to listen
Take in their harsh words
Letting me cut myself off
And return to the darkest of places
They take over my world
Coax me to do their bidding
Plead for me to join them
Their family of hatred and revenge
My life soon falls to pieces
Why won't they go away?
The only place to return to
The evil inside my soul
They throw knives at my sanity
Detroy the disappearing judgement
I willingly let them dominate me
As they encourage me to breakdown to them
There's no time left
The mentality has finally gone
I fall happily to my true family
The voices in my head
Breathe AgainBreathe Again3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A day without seeing your face
Is like a day spent without oxygen,
So if it's so hard for me to stay away,
Why am I walking out of your door?
Why aren't you chasing after me?
You're just letting me leave,
Without a word,
Even after I've poured my soul out
And given you everything that I have:
You took it all without a second thought,
But you never gave anything in return,
So I'm left
Empty and afraid.
I can't keep living like this,
But with each step I take,
The oxygen gets more scarce,
And I feel light-headed,
Because you took my breath away
And never gave it back.
You never did anything for us.
I know that I shouldn't,
But I glance back at you
And see a man who is just fine alone.
What does that make me?
Can I learn to breathe again on my own?
I suppose that I'll have to,
Because I cannot go back to you,
As much as my heart tells me to,
I know that it's not the right choice.
Someday, I know,
I will breathe again with ease.

Blue ExperienceI fell in love with her eyes,Blue Experience3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Leaning over a coffee shop counter,
Grubby, worn wood holding it's own charm,
The smell of coffee,
Nothing compared to her eyes.
As she handed me the cup.
I was mesmerised from the moment,
Chuck a few coins in the tip box,
Just for those eyes.
I went in more after that,
Hoping she'd be there,
We'd talk surrounded by
Softly glowing fairy lights,
As she'd wipe down tables.
I'd sit there with a newspaper,
But I didn't really pay attention.
All that mattered was her voice,
Soft and special as if just for me.
But I fell in love with her eyes first.
That would sparkle like the seas
From my childhood
Every time she'd laugh.
As I walked in once again,
With a ring of the bell
That matched her tinkling giggle perfectly,
Sweet, that smile with her dimples,
As her cheeks flushed red,
But I fell in love with her eyes first.
Brilliant, aquamarine eyes,
That haunted me.
Through our conversations that revealed
Her to me.
She was perfect.
La Trilogie des PrintempsLa Trilogie des Printemps4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
La trilogie des printemps.
Ici, le printemps est une trilogie du temps.
C'est un fruit fragile qui s'ouvre en trois pelures.
Il s'en vient en douce et se sauve à toute allure.
Et un jour on se dit que c'était le printemps.
C'est une entre saison d'un temps qui se compose
D'un hiver qui s'étire pour ne pas partir,
D'un délavé austère où tous les bruns chavirent
Et d'un temps où les fleurs et tous les verts explosent.
La saison du printemps blanc allonge l'hiver,
Cet amant éconduit qui lutte et qui s'accroche.
Plein de chutes de neige en rappel des hier
Où le froid mordait même l'acier et les roches.
La neige fraîche tombée au sol le matin,
L'ivresse troublante d'une chair frémissante
Que la douce clarté habille gémissante
Tel le nacre du sperme léchant une main.
Le froid qui mord la nuit et l'insensibilise,
Le soleil qui tente de réchauffer le jour.
Les matins et soirs basculant presque touj

Last Night's RainLast Night's Rain3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Wet roses, sick with heavy rain,
Left from last night's slumber,
Smoking the breath of new days.
Swirling crimson sun, turning
Clouds kaleidoscopic in
Burning, dark rhythm.
Let the dew drip full of weight.
A whole morning magnified,
Inverted through liquid orb.
Solidify fiery decay.
Capture the meaning absorbed
Within chaos and abstraction.
In a glistening pool of water.
Lake akin to the forest fire,
Stiller, staying lower,
Ripples investing height
Upon the next day's shower.

I hear a whisper. What does she want? She knows that she cannot help me. Why must this happen? Why am I dying? I cannot scream. I cannot breathe. No longer a human, but a lifeless husk of flesh, burning eyes, glistening with terror.
She calls back to me. I can't lose her. These bleeding walls surround us, and nightmares break the chains. Not again. The only thing have left is dying all around me.
Now I know what it means to be lost. Alone, and afraid. I can't hold on. A desperate attempt to save myself.
She's crying. I'm dying. The damage is done. No longer a sweet dream, A bitter sacrifice. The last thing I will now hear before every night's rest is her final agonizing scream, and her last aching breath.
With her blood staining my hands.

How I long for you
That soft touch of your hand running along my calf
Your strong arms wrapped around my chest
How often I catch myself staring at my phone
Hopeing that I'll get a text with your latest "I love you"
I hold my pillow close at night
Because I cannot hold you
How I long to say, I'm going to see my boyfriend
Instead of saying I'm off to see a friend
I long to stand with you as the water rushes over our forms
To press myself against you
To hold my face against your chest
To kiss you
To wake and see your face smiling down on me
As it did the day after we finally met in person
How I long for your touch

"Hello my dear." She whispered in a nonchalant tone. "How long has it been?"
I faked a smile, hoping she wouldn't realize how cold I had become. "It's been far too long" I glanced down at the floor, playing along.
"How were your travels?" Her soft voice cooed as if she knew.. knew all of the horrid things I had done. I tried to brush the blood off my hands but it was too late, she saw straight through me. Before I could reply, or even utter a word she broke the silence. "Things are different now.. aren't they?"
It was sad, but true. The happy times we once spent together would be no more. The laughter, the smiles, the love we once shared. It was all gone. I had sinned far too much to ever win her heart back, and we both knew it. "I'm afraid so." The tension was thick, nothing that reminiscing about old memories would ever fix.
As I turned my back to her I heard her small voice cry, "I love you." It was too much to bare, we both knew what was coming, yet she chose to make this harder. W
