Always DefeatedI just run; faster than the wind. I can't stay. I won't.
All of this hurts
To remain standing, when all I am, is torn down.
Can you hear my screams?
Or just the silence
As I take a step into the unknown, will you hold my hand? Will you ever believe in me?
I keep trying but, all those words spoken, make me want to cry; to give up and to let go of all I know.
And you know the pain never stops. It's like a never ending empty void, which is sucking me in and I wonder when this will be done.
Will I be the one who won?
Or will I be the loser everyone knows me to be?
King, let me take her handKing, let me take the princess handKing, let me take her hand1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I’m just a jester, but I’m sure you’ll understand
That we’re in love, and I truly make her laugh
I’m no prince, but you have to give me a chance
I’m not wearing shiny armor; because I’m not weak
And I have no servants; I’ll finish my own deeds
I might not be rich; but she’s always happy
And I might not be perfect; but we are both who we need
So please King, open your eyes so you could see
That the princess and I are truly meant to be
I’m just a jester, but I only plead
For you to let us live joyous and safely
Every ShoreFrozen,Every Shore1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I was frozen in life.
I could not move I could not see,
What I was doing I do not know,
Where I was going I cannot say.
I am melting at my core.
I know where I go; one step at a time
What I will do is clear,
Where I will go I can see clearly now.
I will be what I am needed,
Learn as I must,
Do what I have to.
And, in the end, find the way to you.
A way back.
It's always there, a thing of permanence,
The ocean ceases on every shore.
There is a PlaceThere is a placeThere is a Place1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
A special place, where plans are crashed and
Dreams come true
A place where
I would want to be forever
But I can't reach it
I see it everyday
I can't move closer
Because I am trapped
Trapped within my own memories
Moments of pain and suffering
Would it ever end?
I can't do this alone
But then you appear
With a smile on your face every time
Always wondered what made you happy
Till you told me
"I am happy because you make me happy."
You hugged me for a long time
What ran though my mind started to make sense
My pain and suffering was drifting away
There was someone who care enough
Someone who wanted to help
Someone that wants you feel a change from within
A place where
Plans are crashed while dreams blossom
That place was you
You Promise MeI promise you, it's me-You Promise Me1 year ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
I am the one destroying my soul-
I don't care what it is that they see;
I only care to fill this bottomless hole-
Here, deep inside, where I'm the filthiest-
Wretched, and I don't care-
It's hurting, but that is only this atheist
Heart getting what is fair.
I did this, and I hate me, too-
The poison that I drink is what I brew
In this empty cavern of a soul,
is this lust to take and give control-
To those- the libidinous, the wanton Bastards,
to whom I owe my life , my hole.
Yes, this is all my wrong- I hate me-
Because you forced me to my knees, into this hell
and drowned me in this wretched sea
of waiting with anxious lips for the tolling of my bell.
Keep blaming me for your sickness, you fucking Bastards,
and I will wear this disgusting, filthy smile, for all that ends is well.
ForeSight"No one knows what the future holds"ForeSight1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
or whether the weather will be mild or bold
We hope some day we will have gained some ground
but to those less fortunate, none could be found
take your licks, and take your blows
a black eye, bruised ribs, or somewhere below
eventually you'll come out on top
before you die, you hope the insanity will stop
and someday it just might and every day in-between?
We'll fight the good fight, and We'll fight it clean
Deep in the NightI can hide my thoughts,Deep in the Night1 year ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
And my fears.
My unseen tears.
No one can see me,
Covers my pain.
Thoughts of him,
Start over again.
Deep in the night,
Wishing we were more then friends.
But nothing changes,
Another night ends.
If it will happen.
My head starts to hurt,
Time for an aspirin.
Time to dream,
Before this night comes to an end.
Hidden HuesRefusing to escape this perfect realm,Hidden Hues1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Oblivious to the alarm’s nagging.
Closing my eyes to falsely pretend,
This world goes on without the raging.
And yet too soon I wake to darkness,
All the sun’s light is a mirror’s illusion.
Nightmares clear the dreams I prolong,
Setting my fears into fruition.
Draped in robes of heaven’s disguise,
Evil taunts us from left and right.
So many forms it blatantly sports,
Angels must pity our little plight.
Fractions of time is hell unleashed,
Sorrow absorbed in just one blink.
Blades and ropes and bullets blend,
Each passing day a child will sink.
Colors dull to the undying clockwork,
Ears gone deaf to justified crime.
Oh just how can we all stand it?
Watching demons at their prime.
Placing pearls on the ocean floor,
And leaving hope in Pandora’s box.
The gods must feast on playing jokes,
Closing this cellar without the locks.
But just as air seeps in the tiniest hole,
Paired with night is dawn’s bright light.
Grief of a GhostThe light I always imaginedGrief of a Ghost1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The transportation I have longed
Have not come of this new state
What have I done to be so wronged?
All around me has not changed
The house I always knew
And the walls the same color
The air the same hue
Yet when I lift my hand
In front of my cold face
I see right through the figure
Barely a line left to trace
As I take a step, or clench my fist
I feel my limbs as floating gossamer
My whole form is but a mist
I never imagined it would be like this
When I ceased to exist
I hear in the next room
Cries of weep and woe
Familiar cries of my mother, my father
But never of such unequalled sorrow
Quickly I rush into the room
To see lament so loathsome
I place my hand on my father's shoulder,
To the shock I can't help but succumb
No touch have I felt
My hand has gone right through
As if nothing was there
Can this horror be true?
Loudly I call out his name
Doesn't seem to hear
I cry out, louder louder, still
Does he not know I'm here?

Their eyes are glowing crimson and the strings sound for the kill.
The alarm is sounded yet we still ignore it all.
I'll play you the dreams that had once made me fall.
Someone is the Eye of the World.
Thoughts flow through just as I've been told
About the sea, about the stars,
We talked about the mighty wars.
I've seen rivers made of lies and such
I've dreamt happiness to live and touch.
I stopped to finish what I stopped to gain
I faded to finish, evaded all pain.
I stopped to finish what I stopped to gain.
I stopped to gather and feel so insane.
Time became prey, I am the hunter!
I am the Eye of the World!
DoveAll the things I did todayDove1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
make no sense in any way,
all the things I tore apart
were yet broken at the start,
all the worst dreams, scaring me,
have now turned to reality
'cause all the things I did so wrong

Yet a part of me is struggling,
still longing for life and love
as I climb to the roof
to follow the dove.
Sometimes... It Just HurtsI'm stuck in rut in my life. I can't hear the sounds around me, the happiness seizes. I wish I could do everything right but, I always fall as I catch my breath.Sometimes... It Just Hurts1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
It all hurts; I'm never good enough for myself. I can't even impress myself. I'm in so deep that no-one can save me. Not even the ones who love me.
I want to runaway and never look back but, that won't get me anywhere.
Screaming in my head is those cries I want to yell because no-one truly knows my pain. I am broken I have been for so long.
There is always someone one step a head of me and as much as I try I am always behind, even behind the ones who don't try or don't care.
It's like as I entered this, I was left alone and left to dry from this pouring rain. I'M NOT OKAY! I'm in so much pain, everyday I wake worse then other. Everyday it's like I lose myself even more.
I want to breathe again. I want someone to be hear while I'm trying to stop myself crying. I need a shoulder to lean on
It all hurts.

Burning DreamsI stood alone on that massive ship,Burning Dreams1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Surrounded by all my dreams-
As we drifted to the middle of the sea
I took out a tiny match
And let it drop onto the deck;
"If my dreams must burn," said I,
"So must I."
And the whole ship was set ablaze,
Flames shooting towards the sky-
I perished amongst my dreams,
Surrounded by what I could not achieve

that carried me over a field of clovers
And I drifted beneath the clouds,
gazing in the idle wonder
that creeps upon men like curling ivy
There was no bluer sky than that day,
and the trees-
there have never been more hearty trees
than the giant oaks towering above me
as the hands carried me further-
And when I awoke in this mysterious land,
I breathed in the scent of moist grass,
relieved to find that it was not just a dream,
and that the world in which I lived
was as beautiful as the world of my dreams
NumbersTime speaks in paradoxes, riddles, eclipses,Numbers1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And time hungry creatures wage war for broken pieces;
Infinite power, skeletal hands,
Death knows his victory since those moments began;
Loud as a drumbeat, silent as a mute,
A tree with minutes for branches, and moments for fruit;
Can't be remembered, can't be forgot,
Time is only numbers,
Those numbers say a lot.
White RoseI'm searching for a white roseWhite Rose1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Among a sea of crimson red
That litter the field in countless throes
Looking for life among the dead
I see one withered black rose,
And one red with gleaming thorns,
But not a hint of white within the rows
Of both the old and the newborns
I stop and sit to take a rest,
Watching blue skies give into red,
Holding this hope within my breast
That I might find life among the dead
I have been searching all my life
As countless others did before me,
Searching for the truth among questions rife,
For a hint of white among a red sea
And forever I will search the field
Where the red roses thrive,
Hoping for the White Rose to yield
And help our souls to revive
The Old WellMy destiny calls from the depths of the well,The Old Well1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The sound of the water my own death knell.
Spirits pass upwards and through the stone,
Leaving behind pennies people have thrown.
The well is filled with the souls of others,
All of whom strayed from the same path.
Every fate as damned as another's,
Consumed by this ancient curse's wrath.
Mysteries surround this age-old dwelling,
I, a servant of this ancient foretelling.
My heart lies at its base,
My life removed without a trace.
A Letter to No OneThe clock ticked against silence,A Letter to No One1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Upon the cemetery of a room.
Deep sighs weave through the air,
Meager warmth in compressed despair.
Moths fall prey to a musty lampshade,
An opened window to Night’s gloom.
Thoughts dance like ripples on water,
And clouds on the hiding moon.
A lullaby plays from the gentle sound,
Made by scratching pen on paper.
One story told too many times,
Is voiced from words created.
Though this time revived from lies,
A phoenix forms the ugly truth.
The pen rolls from the wooden desk,
Having served its final use.
Old dusty dolls and teddy bears,
Watched helplessly through glassy eyes.
No star showed to twinkle hope,
Not one ray from the busy moon.
On the clock’s tick, a rope was hanging.
On the clock’s tock, a form was thrashing.
A tired, hoarse throat gasps for life,
Cut abruptly by the Reaper’s scythe.
Poems on the shelf with an unknown author.
Paintings on the wall left unsigned.
Just another heart trapped in horror,

Imaginary FriendI once had a friend.Imaginary Friend1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
That was made of pretend,
Who's only friend was me.
We played all alone,
Just all on our own.
Down on the hills,
And the trees.
We ran through the woods,
Jumped in the hills,
And played in the dark,
Because we lived for the thrills.
We went on our journeys,
And time would stand still.
The world would change,
Because it was our will.
Then came the days
My friend started to fade.
We no longer spoke,
We just sat in the shade.
And as we sat silent
We looked at the sky .
My friend left for the last time,
Without a goodbye.
I guess the fact is.
They were no longer shy.
I once had a friend,
I thought was made of pretend.
Who supposedly no one could see.
So I sit and I wait,
Pretending their late.
Alone with no guarantee.

You might just had your heart broken
Those feelings of yours go unspoken
Let the rain wash your pain away

The rain will stay with you for years
It's one of those things that always cares
Because in the rain nobody will see your tears

Now my heart is shattered and I keep seeing tears

I know what you've been through and I have been through the same
Hopefully soon you will notice and tell me how you feel
Hopefully things will become better, lets make it part of the deal
Tell me you love me and i'll tell you the same
Lets hold each other close and finally get that special kiss in the rain

Drifting and shifting around a crescent moon.
Not even the wind coldly whirred.
The silence slithers.
The red rose withers.
The world is unshaken
For a white rose will awaken.
An empty path
Frozen in white.
The serene wrath
Of the hollow light.
A dream that cries.
An endless reprise
For a soul to rise.
The idle bark
Huddled in the dark
In this hollow haven for a hollow heart.
