My leap of faithI dare to dream
A dream so big
A dream so wild
A dream so sweet
I strive to fly
To fly so high
To fly so long
To fly so fast
I leap to feel
A leap so strong
A leap so great
A leap so wonderful
I fall to understand
To realise the truth
To realise the reality
To realise the bitterness
The madness of my life will always be bittersweet
A Fool For FairytalesWhy am I such a fool?A Fool For Fairytales3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
For dreaming about fairytale love stories?
For hoping that my Prince Charming will come,
to save me from the balcony
of desperation and despair?
Every little girl does as a child.
So, why am I such a fool?
I am a fool for...for falling for you.
The juicy red apple that just caught my eye,
the ugly duckling that never truly was a swan,
the beast that seemed so loving,
for something so terrifying.
You were my Prince Charming!
You were my saviour,
who got me to let down my golden hair!
You were my true love!
But this mirror of dreams and sweet delights
into a million pieces.
But it was not of the clock that struck twelve's doing,
You took what we had and broke it!
Breaking my heart within the next second of the new day.
We had something!
The perfect fitting glass slippers!
Although...I am the fool.
For believing that life could be a perfect fairytale.
For believing that everything was always going to be okay,

Tip Tap Toeing around one another
When we are unsure of our feelings
Dry as Day when we don't want to admit the truth
Until we let it all pour out
Hearts and souls into one another

The Beast of Why
Lurking in the dark
It harbors the question of all or none
Tamed, it is a gentle adviser
A quietly reminding reminiscence of ultimate desire
For a perfect world
Without irresolvable contradictions
Without elusive temptation
Without unanswered questions
Without doubtful justice
Unbound and enraged by torture
It devours the happiness.
Its footprints make white spots on black paper
- or is it black on white -
What is the truth?
The moth is flying away with vague ideas
They disappear into the dark.
Letting Go or Giving Up?Rain is murdering my window. The wind keeps sounding like a scream and it echoes in my head even after the trees stop casting spooky shadows on my wall. The water streaks the glass and races toward the bottom of the pane, I pick the underdog and I always lose. It's kind of hard to win against gravity. The lightening illuminates my bed and I can see my frame shaking in the storm. Pretty soon my eye lids are heavy and even sooner the sun is up and I slept through shakes and terror and being afraid my house would float away. Afraid that the waters would rise to my second story and my daddy wouldn't hear me scream and worse he wouldn't come to rescue me if he did. When the sun rises in the morning I can never even tell that my bed was home to nightmares, cold sweats, and violent shakes, because, what other way would I child say, I'm scared? When my eyes open and my window is dry and my walls are still purple, even though the night before, they held no color at all, itLetting Go or Giving Up?4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

The fear inside heightens
No light to guide the insurrection
False sense of direction
Uncertainty swells, the empty grows
The sweat begins to flow
All but black, lies ahead
Consumed whole by dread
Fear of the unknown so frighting
Envelops fast as lightning
It's all inside, trapped within
The prison of your skin
Fear is strong, but not enough
To overpower thought of love
You Will Drown In The MusicThese lyrics will seduce youYou Will Drown In The Music6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
take you anywhere they please
hold tight, it's about to take you under
why even try to breath?
just let it reach you one more time
before you start to leave
This will be the song of a lifetime
let the beat tear open your heart
we live by the smash of a drum
we breathe at the strum of each guitar
just let the song capture you
as soon as the first verse starts
This is how we get out
from under every watchful eye
we take one look at the crowd
than close our eyes and dive
we let the music pull us down
and tear apart our minds
I know you've got to feel this
the beat running through your veins
I can see it in your eyes
it's the only thing keeping you sane
breathe it in a few more times
cause this song will never change
Book to BookShe slid from book to bookBook to Book1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Collecting love from those who did not know her
Hiding papercuts and feelings behind closed eyelids
Letting it all out in poetry
And drawings that didn’t quite come out right
She slid down the slide of fantasy
Holding on tightly to a heart
Not even the strongest could carry
And laughing in her pain like a hyena
That couldn’t let go
ShatteringI don't understand you.Shattering1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
You used to smile at me in ways that seemed bright.
Was it all a facade? Was the joy in your eyes a trick of the light?
You told me to be strong, you taught me to fight for myself.
But you also taught me obedience in the harshest ways
leaving me to cry on my own, never comforting me.
Was this the tough love you sought to give me?
So many unseen tears were shed, and every time
I would put on a brave smile and hide everything away.
You hurt me once, but I never complained.
My youth healing me quickly as I went out to play
Then you hurt me twice, I blinked hard, seeing stars.
I covered my ears so I wouldn't hear what you would say
But you still got inside me and broke me apart
Ice fell from my face as I tried to mend what I could
but even the best carpenter, weaver, and craftsman could not fix what was done.
After this, I still sought your love and guidance, desperate that fate was wrong
You hurt me a third time, shattering my everything into shards
LonelinessLong I've played along the plot,Loneliness1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
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.

The place where truth and myth collide,
You rose from deep within my mind,
And taught me how to live in kind.
Deep inside I feared to see,
That I'm just You, and You're just Me,
But somewhere in You's something great,
Beyond my grasp but yet your fate.
And now you're both my sword and shield,
To you alone, the stars will yield,
It seems my part is almost through,
To dream, create and harbour you.
Not just a Dream, You'll never die,
Though in my sleep, for you I cry,
For now's the hardest part you see,
I'm waking up, to set you free...
Human insanityI am insane.Human insanity1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Let me explain.
They call me insane.
Ludicrous. Crazy. Deranged.
But I must argue that isn't everyone too?
The man on the street? The girl at the park? The mail man?
A hundred years ago, people who dreamed of technology we have today,
A super computer. Satellites. People on Mars.
Was thought to be impossible.
Inconceivable. Unbelievable. Unrealistic.
A thousand years ago such things as
Canons. Cars. Space shuttles.
Were things said by the crazy.
Delusional. Upset. Mental.
And yet here we are today with all these things that were said to be unimaginable.
Unattainable. Futile. Hopeless.
So does that not mean that we are all indeed bizarre in our own way?
Demented? Mad? Psychotic?
Who are you to call me strange?
The Mayor? The President? Dictator?
It doesn't matter for we are all human in the end.
Flesh and blood. People. Civilization.
So lock me up for my point of view why don't you?
The way I see. My

is all i know of your story
so, i'll cry with you tonight
we'll lose ourselves in the stars
within the branches of the pink dogwoods
because we cannot touch
i watched them massacre you
from behind a pexi-glass screen
as anger pulsed an elevating pain in my ears
so, lie next to me tonight
you'll lose yourself with my amnesia kisses
because you've never touched

On my skin you leave burns
An animal never tamed
Leaving me defenseless, a fern
Your an angel to me
Eyes telling all
Something I could never be
I'm always going to fall
A smile you beam
Never to cease
Looks like a dream
A home of peace
You stand near
Like a bull
Never to fear
Always calm and cool
An angel you must be
Never to flee
Never to fear
