Your luscious black hair cascading
Long down my emaciated hand
From my frosty palm life is fading
This ominous fate I reprimand
I weep as you lie dormant and cold
Bitterly silent and erotic
You shine as inviolable gold
Of a tale of angels and Gothic
Open your emerald eyes my dear
I can no longer cradle your head
Your misery shall in me inhere
As my lifetime is torn and shredded
You leave me alone forevermore
I shall cry myriads of rivers
I kiss you goodbye and I abhor
This romance to be sad and somber
Tree of EternityInto the darkness are seepingTree of Eternity2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Voices of suffering spirits
In sanguine eyes is steeping
The reflection of torn merits
Humans that by life are vanquished
Will be locked in insanity
By sorrow they will be varnished
In the tree of eternity
Sleepless they scream with icy faith
Feeding the leaves of ancient hopes
They will be held captive in wraith
Till the tree is a wizened corpse

I was left to be the sliding stone
By your crimson hands obligated
My star in the night had never shone
Of your tree I am a fallen leaf
Taken away by the sore canon
Helpless with a shimmering belief
The forsaken and shameful demon
I am the void in your universe
Enlightened never by your design
My despair is meant to be endless
And your creations to be divine

I am the girl who you said whas fat
for over 10 years i done lived with that
until one day i had enough
i walked in the road and was hit by a truck
I am the girl who you made a rumor
about how she was ugly without any hair
but you did not know that i had a tumor
and I died thinking that nobody would care
I am the girl who tried to look pretty
i put on much makeup to make it come true
Then my boyfriend said I looked shitty
so i left him a note that said "I died 4 you"
I am the girl who was alone in the classh
making weird doodles for the time to pass
everyone joked saying i was with satan
Now im still alone but only in heaven
I am the girl who did all these things
i did not realize what my word brings
I am the girl who made them all cry
and now it is also my turn to die
OrigamiConcertina love lettersOrigami1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
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.
So Far ForwardIt's those moments,So Far Forward2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When someone you used to know
Everything is familiar,
The love that was there, feels odd.
Remember all the times,
Good, and bad.
Though you're unsure if you could ever have more.
It's as if the chapter ended,
And you're wondering,
If they could ever be apart of your novel.
You've gone so much forward,
They're still so far behind.
They say love is unconditionalThey say love is unconditional,They say love is unconditional11 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
A family's love,
The love of a soul mate,
The love for a dear animal.
But love is only unconditional
If trust and hope stand together side by side.
If they are together,
The love will last forever.
But if I cannot trust,
And I cannot feel hope,
The love is doomed.

Everybody misses a nail.
Dreams break like broken glass, but old dreams never last
Everybody takes off their cast.
We all decide too late, but thats just part of fate
Everybodys built on hate.
We all pretend to keep, all our flaws and lies asleep. But
Everybody cries and weeps.
Light turned into evilSince when did you become the devil?Light turned into evil1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Since when did light turn evil?
I'm running and running
running of panic
running of fear
nothing make the devil walk out of here
the chaos around me
it's all I can see
it's all I can hear
I need someone
I need someone to tell me
Try to be still
Don't move and I'll mend that broken vein
Just lay still for a little while...
Everythings is just a black hole of pain
What's the point then?
When the light in my life
The man who was supposed to be my savior
My own little angel
When the savior became the source of pain
The devil who haunts me
Is the same
as the one who keeps me alive these days...
Price of The Sacred KissPrice of The Sacred KissPrice of The Sacred Kiss2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I will cross this world in heresy
And knock on the door of your garden
I will cry before you so you can see
The shattered outcome of your burden
The path through Hell will flower in red
As I nurture the void to heaven
Your high kingdom will drown as I shed
My tears as black as wings of raven
I will tear me apart at your eyes
Because then I know you will notice
What happens to me when you despise
The sacred kiss, sentimental peace
I will come so far to pay the price
Of my unholy passionate vice
Pursuit of HappinessI've been constantly wonderingPursuit of Happiness1 year ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Why my heart wasn't content
It kept sending me messages
But I never knew what they meant
So I set out on a search
I had to find the real me
And figure out exactly what it is I'm meant to be
And I had to take off, I just needed to go
No idea where my heart may roam
I just need to find a place that I can call home
Where I don't feel so impossibly alone
I ran down the street through the masses of people
Looking for my friend's house with a steeple
"He must know the secret to success,
All of his stuff is imported, and it's the absolute best."
As he opened the door, and I looked inside
Things were strewn all over the floor, and smelled like someone had died
His wife had left him, and I expected him to scold me
But he just started to cry, and here's what he told me
I just have to take off, I really need to go
No idea where my heart may roam
I just need to get out, get away from this home
And find a place where I don't feel so impossibly alone
So I flew across t

As if there was a clock ticking in my chest
The feelings that resonate within
the deepest pain, the most overwhelming ecstasy
The moments that clutter the desk that is my mind
My life in all its bits and pieces
Every instance recorded as if by video camera
They're all there jut waiting to be replayed
Jokes that want to be laughed at one more time
Connections that wish for the love to be felt again
They all live inside of me
I can visit them whenever I want
Once a day or once an hour, it doesn't matter
They are there for my use
No, I do not live in the past, I cannot
But that doesn't mean I can't take the occasional trip

TimeTime is speeding up,Time2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As I beg him to slow down.
Before I know something's coming my way,
It's beaten me to the ground.
I don't know how much longer,
I can take all this abuse.
Time is my tormentor.
I can't seem to get loose.
He binds my hands and steals
All I had of him away,
Yet drags me through the worst of him,
While the best is miles away.
Time runs away when I need his help,
To finish my endless labors.
But when I see his sweetness ahead,
My tortured longing he savors.
He keeps from me that which brings me joy,
And holds me in my pain.
He promises blue skies and sun,
But gives me only rain.

Take me in your hand
Let me be near you
Let me understand
You can be the Romeo
But I'm not Juliet
I'm not ready to die you see
or at least, not yet
Call me anything you like
Let me hang on your every word
let me make it up to you
I say things that are so absurd
Please don't leave me cause I'm stupid
I'll promise I'll behave
I'll do anything you ask
I'll even be your slave
Oh my dear Romeo
Don't you hear my calls?
The more you ignore me and desert me
The more in love I fall
GracefullyWhen I was eight, I couldn't wait to be ten.Gracefully4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A double-digit number seemed so big back then.
I would be so tall and older too,
just think of all the things I could do!
I could stay up late and watch T.V. until nine,
and being in the fifth grade sure would be fine.
When I was eighteen, I couldn't wait to be twenty.
No longer a teen, now I'd be somebody.
I could find a bride and settle down,
she would look so lovely in her wedding gown.
I could get a real job and make money by the ton,
being in college just wasn't fun.
When I was twenty-eight, I couldn't wait to be thirty.
It sounded so fun to be "dirty thirty".
I could have a Son or maybe two,
they would grow up like me and be successful too.
I would get promoted with a big pay raise,
and my friends and family would shower me with praise.
When I was thirty-eight, I couldn't wait to be forty.
I was still in great shape and not at all portly.
The prime of my life, I'd be a success,
when it comes to my career, I'd be
WomanKnow that you are your ownWoman1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
You do not belong
to vacant womb
or aging sire
is given you for your own
You were not born to be
a brood mare
Beauty lies not
in the eye of the beholder
Only lust and judgment
can be found there
Beauty, in truth, lies
in the eye in the mirror
If you cannot love yourself
you become a thing
your value set
not by heart
but by the media
You are the final work
of the maker's hand
for man is like the beasts
made from dirt
but you were refined
to look man in the eye
for he is but an animal
and you are the very soul of all

I won't be blind
I won't be tied
To old things in me died
Don't you see what lies behind the lies?
Come & see through my eyes
A Liars Mind.When life's spider spinns it's web,A Liars Mind.1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And you're in the dead center,
All the words you've once said,
Seam to suddenly matter.
You've apparently been caught,
In your web of lies,
But you could have sworn,
There was no crime.
Everything that you know,
Suddenly slips away,
Beginning a mental withdraw,
Your on a path that will go astray.
You have been betrayed,
By people you trust,
It was just how you learned.
So different from those who taught,
You're just damned with a stranger mind,
Mistakingly normal for our society,
And forever cursed with the mind of a liar.

Am I the monster you always said I wasn't?
Is my sweet smile now an ugly sneer?
Scared? Frightened? Horrified?
Am I the beast in the dark to you?
Am I no longer the Goddess you glorified ?
Do you fear the words that come from my lips?
Scared to see me at night?
I come no matter what. New moon or eclipse.
Let me show you tonight,
Of the beast you created.
From the hell of the morning light.
You think I wanted you to be scared?
I had promised to never hurt you,
Because of all the memories we shared.
My heart was not to clever,
Which made us, Beast and Beauty
And you, are something lost to me forever.
Maybe your creation should end it here.
Since the master left the beast.
The puppet lost from its puppeteer.
Farewell to you. Forever and more.
Because like a monster from the dark,
I am dead to my core.
