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 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
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.
Rose and RainShe awaits in the rainRose and Rain3 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.
A Treasure In YouA Treasure in YouA Treasure In You4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You took off your mask,
and bared it all,
Showing a side of you,
That some have never seen before,
Trust and honesty, loyalty and heart,
That is what I have found in you,
Something so rare and beautiful
This is why I will treasure
the words you said this day,
For no masks were involved,
No persona's in play,
Just two people talking,
Being honest from the heart
So from me to you,
I thank you for this gift,
I will treasure it always,
A special moments like this,
For I will look back and know
without a doubt,
That I have a Guardian Angel,
Looking out for my heart...
That is why I will trust in you
To guard the treasure that
bonds us two,
For what we have found
is rare but true,
Something so special
and everlasting between
me and you

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....
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,
Don't Let GoRestrained by insecurity, she is hard to love.Don't Let Go3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Her heart however, hides a passion unknown.
An unforeseen utopia, and still so much more.
The problem, huge hearts make easy targets.
The strategy is simple though, easy to learn.
Follow this formula and you'll find your forever.
Hold her tight through all of the happy times,
and the fighting and the anger, don't let go.
If you feel her falling take her hand in yours.
When you feel like she is letting go, catch her.
Protect her with your arms when she is scared.
When she is sad, especially then, don't let go.
Don't let her walk away, even if she wants to.
Bravery is an act, nobody wants to be alone.
It will take work, but the reward is her heart.
And she will treasure you, but don't ever let go.
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,

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...

Though we've barely even started
With all the changes in your life,
You don't want me to have a part in
In your hands, you hold my love
That, I gave to you, wholehearted
Now you give me back my heart
And now, we're Dearly Departed.

I am sorry I was the one who let you fall
I am sorry I wasn't there to catch you
I am sorry I wasn't yours at all
I am sorry I was too busy
I am sorry I didn't give
I am sorry I didn't care
I am sorry you didn't live
I am sorry you couldn't make it
I am sorry you went away
I am sorry, I am sorry
That's all what I have to say
