LonelinessLong I've played along the plot,
On the words that friends forgot,
Never checking twice my line,
Every day spent in confine,
Long awaiting their return,
I always hoped but never learn,
Never changing words nor tone,
Every day spent on my own,
Singing out a broken creed,
Singing so I might be freed.
We Are ForerunnerIn our riches you will find,We Are Forerunner5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The key to what we left behind,
Hidden deep within the dark,
A single final glowing spark,
Our perfect everlasting mark,
Buried safely on the Ark.
But first we had to end it all,
And death incarnate - had to stall,
So we stood there side by side,
To stop the unrelenting tide,
Holding back the endless Flood,
That sought to taste creations blood.
And so the rings we did ignite,
To burn it all and end the fight,
It purged the worlds and all their skies,
And brought about our own demise.
I'm sad I caused the decimation,
Of every species - every nation,
Yet I pray you stand our station,
Loyal guards to all-creation.
White flagThese lies are killing me.White flag3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
This wretched pain drowns me.
This heart may be bleeding
but inside my mind im truly dying.
Maybe you cant see it.
But these tears should surly make you see.
That this heart is withering.
Just dying to be free.
Wont you please let me breath?
Cant you please just set me free?
This war keeps waging on.
These scars keep opening up.
I keep losing my heart and soul.
Set me free and let me go.
This cage keeps getting smaller.
This heart keeps breaking more.
This white flag keeps burning.
But inside im still fighting on.
But these wounds you make are getting sharper …
how much could one bleed on?
Who We AreWe liveWho We Are6 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
In this hell of sacrifices
Like mules bearing burdens
Far too heavy.
Our knees bent
After toil and toil
Our bones to our skin
As we starve.
It's who we are
We wait for our day
A wait for eternity
With sweat and tears
After days under the sun
And nights beside the ice.
We can't turn back
We've waded too deep
Into this river
Of toil and sacrifice.

a language that's spoken
Wings as black as
a starless midnight
but one seems to be torn from
the right side.
Don't be ashamed,
because you wanted to play
fate as a child's game.
The Devil used to be an angel just like you,
but then he found out
he could toy with the world too,
breaking a forbidden rule.
ShatterIn my eyes, I'm told there can only be joy-Shatter6 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Only the glitter of happiness, behind sparkling frames.
My smile it shines,
With the apples of my cheeks
But no one ever thought that maybe,
They might glitter with un-shed tears;
That frames only hide a picture
Of sunken eyes,
Weary and without sleep.
That a smile so shiny and crystal,
Can only be made of glass, waiting to shatter.

Because I went against my beliefs.
Cause when you betray your own soul,
Heaven becomes worse than Hell.
A Drink To InsanityAs I touch a burning candle I feel nothingA Drink To Insanity2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As I touch my heart I feel every thing.
Your ghost haunts me
As I scream for you leave me
I drink to my insanity.
As you fade to just a memory
As you fade from my memory
I drink to pull you back
To feel your touch once more
To feel again
To be whole once more.
As the wind blows throw the curtains
I feel your icy cold touch
I feel your icy lips on my head
As I scream for you to leave
I drink to my insanity.
As you fade with the wind
As your memory blows away
I drink to pull you back
To feel you once again
To let the flame within my heart
To make you warm once again.
As the storm brings me silence
I can hear the soft patter of rain
I can hear your voice whisper to me
The rain increases and your voice surrounds me
Telling me sweet words
The ones you used to say
The one that tore at my heart
The ones I lost myself

this tortured soul feels so helpless
these dying words may not reach you
and this feeling may not be worth spilling
but im dying and I just cant help it
but what im trying to say truly is that I miss you and every day is so full of pain
and im falling like these stars in heaven
feeling helpless and so lonely
only wanting heaven to come save me
and these stars and moon burn my eyes tonight
and here I am still trying to reach you
even in your shadowed light here I am standing wanting to feel the peace of twilight
always falling short of rapture...
what can I say but im sorry to those I've hurt
to those I've harmed
but here I am fully seen by heaven
just trying to reach bliss
almost there give me one last push please!
I just need that one taste of that divine light tonight.
Betrayal has no nameI used to think life was full of beautyBetrayal has no name7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
every thing and everyone had something special about them
unique and beautiful at every turn
a simple smile would warm my heart
naive and simple
always thinking the best of people
only to be reminded time and again
how deceitful people truly are
promises , promises.
That’s all they can make.
Breaking them, breaking them
time and time again
giving new life to this dark part of me
distrustful of everyone, the world all around me
who am I really now?
When I look in the mirror all I want to do is tear that image apart.
This darkness spreads its poisonous veins
no smile can hide it
no mask can mask it
I don’t want your help
I don’t need your arms
because all I can think is when are you going to stab me with that knife

A brick removed from friendships built,
Yet still he tries to stand and fight,
Against whats wrong, and for what's right,
The walls of freedom break and fray,
But yet he fights throughout the day,
His body weak,
His mind astray,
Now comes the time that Zack must pay,
The three approach,
Their weapons aimed,
For what Zack lost,
Now something gained,
For in his Heart,
He sees Her face,
His final wish,
A simple kiss,
The bullets come,
Zack welcomes bliss.

her angel face you hold so dear
she'll find you in that darkest time
her eyes will speak sans reason, rhyme
in time you will remember things
of birds and bones and broken wings
of deadly secrets, shattered dreams
things left unsaid and silent screams
with open heart and open mind
stand in the rain and you will find
that healing lies in these things true
and to remember changes you

am too busy loving you to try and regrow them.
Your galaxy is just wide enough for me to drown inside the

I'm tripping over the Milky Way and the silver words pouring
from your gilded lips; every breath you take is a song echoing

And forced my kind's descent,
You who killed your overlords,
And stole the powers lent,
For the Stars - we cast aside,
Our right to live - although we tried,
Now all I ask is time to tell,
The truth of how your makers fell,
Once we sought to kill your kind,
An act that made us truly blind,
Blind to see you'd ran away,
From what you couldn't hope to slay,
The monsters hiding in the dark,
Had sought to snatch your dying spark,
So we rushed to intervene,
A failure - so we should have seen,
The shadows shifting in the night,
Had come to force our final fight,
A fight we knew we couldn't win,
A fight to lose would be a sin,
Death had come to claim us all,
And us alone ensured our fall,
We used our force to clean the slate,
An act that sealed our deathly fate,
My people sadly chose to end,
The lives we could not help defend,
So now you hold our Mantle's laws,
So Save Us All,
The Stars are Yours...

The chime pierced the silence of the flag officer's quarters aboard the Alliance battleship Kilimanjaro, and Vice Admiral Harriet Spencer's azul eyes opened begrudgingly before the chime called again. Sighing, the five foot nine woman rolled to her side and glanced up at the communication panel at her bedside, tapping the glowing accept key and designating voice only. After all, it wasn't right for an admiral to talk to her subordinates while half naked.
"Spencer, go ahead." She said and noted the grogginess of her own voice as she checked the time. Zero two hundred. No wonder she felt like she had just fallen off a sunderhorse.
"Admiral, I don't mean to wake you but we have a situation." Spencer quirked an eyebrow at the voice on the other end. It was Captain Kuritz, Kilimanjaro's CO who, like Spencer,

They were returning from their prison on onyx
They had been through hell and back again
And the war was finally over
So now they could return to earth and see 117
The landed near a small memorial
It had photos many of soldiers who died
For the sake of humanity in the final assault
They were sad to see many familiar faces
One of them was 117 old cohorts
Sgt. A.J. Johnson was on the memorial
They also saw their old friends daughter
Capt. Miranda Keys was on the memorial
The 18 of them stood at attention
And paid their respects
They then began searching for 117
He was nowhere to be found
They returned to the memorial
Wondering were he could
It was then that ghostly figures emerged
Each one was a friend or enemy of 117
Zuka Zamame and YapYap stared emotionless
Sam, Kurt, James and many other Spartans also stared
Two disfigured and zombie like soldiers stared as well
They were Pvt. Wallace A. Jenkins and Captain Jacob Keyes
A giant octopus/zombie like creature also stared at this
Plastic SkiesHow much lying can we take,Plastic Skies3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Til we ourselves start turning fake,
It's like our lives are pre-designed,
A fate to which we've all resigned,
No one cares to learn our past,
Or hope & dream or watch the stars,
How they scream their life is hard,
Then waste the rest on disregard,
Disregard for what has changed,
Been thrown away or rearranged,
It's like the World itself is fractured,
And all it's people manufactured,
Now I stare at plastic skies,
It's pouring down and raining lies,
So alluring, how it gleams,
Now I'm dreaming plastic dreams...
