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

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.
Tree of EternityInto the darkness are seepingTree of Eternity3 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
She mattersShe unloaded her pistol and untied her nooseShe matters3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She dropped her razor blades, threw them away too
She wiped up the blood that she had on her skin
She lifted her head up, ready to start again
She descended her heart to me like an angel from above
After holding on to life, she finally found love
Something changed inside her and she decided to live
She had heart a full of joy and a lot of love to give
She wiped away her tears and held a smile on her face
Now she's happy here with me and we found a better place
She thought no one would miss her, they'd just leave her be
Now she knows that she matters, because she matters to me
Rose and RainShe awaits in the rainRose and Rain2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Holding tightly to a rose,
Ignoring the searing pain
The raindrops dripping from her lashes and nose.
Some drops are from her tears
Which now seemed to turn black,
The person she loved for years
Never loved her back.
Privately mourning for that certain man
All she could do was watch,
As all she did was plan
Secretly emptying the bottle of Scotch.
She awaits in the rain
The rose slowly dying,
Her heart overwhelmed by pain
And soothed herself by lying.
StayIt's funny how emotions moveStay3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
How we're ruined by things we cannot prove.
Your image is burned inside my head
Along with all the lovely, broken words that you said.
How can this be wrong when it feels so good?
I know you won't stay but I wish you would.
Oh, I wish you would, I wish you would.
I don't think I can live without your face,
So I'll suffocate in this forsaken place.
I'll give you my heart for you to heal
As you refuse and reject what you feel.
How can you hate this when it feels so good?
I know you won't stay but I wish you would.
Oh, I wish you could, I wish you would.
You're scared because there is no cure
And you've never known something that feels so pure.
But running and hiding won't take it away
Oh, god, oh god, I wish you'd stay.
How can this be gone when it felt so good?
I wish you hadn't left, but I knew you would
Oh, I knew you would, I knew you would.

I feel nothing.The numbness is almost comfortingI feel nothing.2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The feeling of absolutely nothing
No sadness, no anger
Just dead silence
I couldn't care less for his reply
I couldn't care less if he's gone for good
No nervousness, no fear
My life just goes on, the days drag by
My cuts don't get worse, nor do they improve
No worries, not anxious
I feel nothing.

to understand what I went through
I need a friend
when I feel alone in this world
I need a friend like you
when things don't go my way
a friend that was there from the beginning
that never once left my side
I need a friend in this world
to not feel this pain anymore
I need someone like you in my life
but one day you walked away from me
All I need in this world
to always have a friend by my side
I used to have a friend in this world
but like everyone else
You walked away from me....
unheardThe imaginary audience of my poems used to beunheard2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
people like me who understand
(I suspect I was naive)
but now when I write
I feel like I'm trying desperately to change the course of the tide
with a spoon.
They see something in me that's neither special
nor even really there
all the cheesy, commercial, easy-to-fabricate emotional appeal
that people fall in love with left and right
and that I hate
but that sneaks into my writing
like dust into an already red eye
and is the only thing they can see about me
except they see it as a nice touch
instead of irritating.
All the ideas that I
proud of reverberate,
perhaps, for a moment;
waiting to be seen,
needing to be seen,
Their pale corpses pile up on my shoulders
until I can barely move.
I can hide them away, sure,
to find someone with the same
in the closet.

the person with "problems"
I'm tired of being known as
the person with "disabilities"
I'm tired of being a mistake to this world
An unworthy failure in this life
Just because I have these problems
and not many understand them...
I'm tired of being judged
because they don't fully know me
To deal with this pain
and faking it all day long
I'm tired of putting a mask on
I just want to scream to the world
and tell everybody how I truly feel....
I'm tired of living a lie in my life
To pretend that everything is alright
while deep down
I am dying
I'm just tired of dealing with everything
Pretending to have this smile
to not feel the pain
That I truly feel deep down...
AloneI have an unsettling mind and a restless soul,Alone2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I've been ignored, ridiculed, and left all alone,
But I've tried to keep it all inside so you wouldn't worry, that was my goal,
And I've also always thought that I could do it all on my own.
Now, things have really changed for me,
My lonely self has met new people, made new friends,
I have learned to trust to a whole new degree,
As I opened my heart and shared my secrets before it all ends.
But all good things almost never last,
And all I do is watch as my close friends change into people I no longer recognize,
As they try to drink and smoke at a party instead of having a blast,
And all I do is try to remain my true self instead of putting on a disguise.
Those are the reasons I remain a loner,

And didn't watch my feet when I walked.
In this dream, my head wasn't dying.
Then it ended, and I don't know if I woke up
For my sake or everyone else's.
Living with a SicknessThere are times when I don't know what to do anymore,Living with a Sickness3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I feel like laying down and sleeping forever,
But forever is just a dream.
I don't want to die,
But I can't stop these thoughts,
These dreams that haunt my waking,
And make me want to scream.
Nightmares in the daylight plague me,
And I can't wake up,
What can I do...?
What can I do...?
This part of me that drives me insane,
Sasha, go to sleep!
Let me be!
Sometimes I think I'm through.
Somebody, please help,
Somebody, please save me,

Who are you? Is that something you can really answer? Throughout your nomadic existence you could never truly answer that question. You are like clay; you can mold yourself into whatever you please in order to fool the common masses. I envy that power of yours. You make yourself flawless, proper, and intelligent. Without effort you can put anyone into your indefinite maze of shape and size. As someone such as myself, I can’t fathom the mysteries within that sealed heart of yours. Can you be someone real anymore? Continuously molding yourself must be tiring… and painful. Even when you do this, your ever changing personally always draws the undesirables out. Is that a good thing? I suppose it is. As you have lost the will to carry on with humanity, you’ve lost the twinkle of your heart. The love of humanity you once held dear has ceased before it began, and you were in pain even before you knew what that was.
Who am I? I can’t answer that any
