A Friend Is...Friends,
They're there when you need them,
They're there when you don't,
They've always got your back,
Through thick and thin,
Through good and bad,
They try to understand you,
They try to put themselves in your shoes,
They help you through the hard times,
Through thick and thin,
Through good and bad,
A friend is a friend forever.
Hand In Hand We'll Always BeI want to be there for you every day.Hand In Hand We'll Always Be1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To let you know it's all okay.
You've been hurt, and I understand.
With this chance, I'll take your hand.
I want to help you really see.
There's more to life than misery.
I'll help you out along the way.
I'll show you each and every day.
That I would do anything, if only you'd see,
Just how much you mean to me.
The road is long and very rough,
But together we are twice as tough.
We'll tackle all problems hand in hand.
We'll tackle them all, as best we can,
With you by my side, it all seems clear,
I know now why I am here.
I know that we've had good times and bad,
But I think the happy outweighs the sad,
When all is said and done, I'll say,
I'm glad I could be with you everyday,
To help carry you along the course,
So that you may not have remorse,
For the things you've done, we've done together,
We are indeed like birds of a feather,
I promise, I will do my best,
You can give me any test,
I'll never ever betray your trust,
Because being with you is

I'm scared of the unknown.
But most of all, I'm just too scared
To leave you all alone
But if it's not too much to ask
for a second part of this rhyme
I promise I'll come back
But I just need some time
My BestfriendYou were my only friendMy Bestfriend11 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I didn't want it to end
You had to move far away
I only wanted you to stay
I was so sad
It made me go mad
You soon got tired of me
I no longer wanted to see
My heart was broken
No words were no longer spoken
You got new friends, your life was perfect
While I was sitting home alone, with no clue how to connect
The days passed away
I got beat up every day
I just wanted to hear you say
I miss you
Personal QuoteThe problem with the world is that we no longer have a sense of balance.Personal Quote1 year ago in Personal More Like This
We are so focused on or obsessed with one thing that we ignored or tune out other things.
We think in absolutes. You either support this or that. You are either with me or against me.

Heavens LamentHeavens LamentHeavens Lament1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The night sky stirred slowly as hordes of people stared upwards at the looming dark clouds and the sound of thunder echoing across the city, lightning began to strike down as if they were warning shots to them, but they didn't listen.
It only got worse as time slowly ticked on, until rain began to pour down soaking them as the water drenched the ground as if to say the Gods above them were crying and mourning them, but they continued to remain still and watch as the end drew near, closer and closer.
Then suddenly shrills screams echoed through the crowds of people as the skies tears had become corrupt with acid, the liquid burning everyone as the crowd dispersed and scattered like ants, their primal instincts mixed with an intense amount of fear gripping hold of the foolish humans, realization dawning upon them as they ran for their lives.
The downpour did not cease as it tore apart everything in its path, and then slowly but surely the clouds began to part as the heaven

Meeting my dazed body
A purr wraps around my legs
From my companion
Steam rises from hot drinks
Meeting the chill of the
Purple nails and pale skin
Locks of chocolate meeting my shoulder blades
Wrap myself in a woven blanket
To melt my frozen bones
Walk the LineI've walked this line for years, and years to comeWalk the Line1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Froze my fingers, my heart's gone numb
For years I have walked the line and back
Back to the start, every day on this path
Trodden so long, so hard;
It's no mystery it's faded from my eyes
I could walk this path forever,
Retracing my own steps
But I yearn to go further,
Somewhere off this beaten path

They pour onto the paper like ink
They slide off my fingertips like I do this for a living
They comfort me
They make me feel safe
They can be my best friend
They can take me to the very end
They can be my worst enemy
They can be the fall of my tragedy
They are everything.
They can make me sing.
Freshyou tore the heart from my chestFresh1 year ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
took it apart for the threads
made me a prison of my own love
continually envisioning my own cuts
and i should be grateful?
it wouldn't seem painful
from a cushioned seat angel
but my bosom bleeds hateful
till i'm pulling the weave to peace
till i'm pulled in the sleep of sleeps
was fighting for the ease of each
seen lighting the breach to reach
what was myself
in need of help
with a cost of hell
that bleeds my world
so long good night

The rose starts to bloom
Revealing its secrets
All inside my mind
And I finally
A shower of newfound thoughts
It envelopes my mind
Under the parasol of memories
I close my eyes
Cherishing the petals
Of the new rose in my mind
Learning new things
About a time before
A time that I forgot
But now I
Yearning to learn more
Craving more memories
I grasp at the rose
It slips away
Leaving me to forget once more
It will bloom again
Silence, and secrets ...There I stand,Silence, and secrets ...1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
In the frozen, and sullied state of my unanswered demand,
Knees grow weary from the pain within my heart,
As the tears well up from the thought of being apart,
Gazing through your illusions to yet find another lie,
Even knowing its wrong to spy,
Yet the truth is there when I, if even gently, seem to pry,
Always reading the things you say to others,
Remembering the soft words you use to utter,
"You're the only one." You so always promised,
Yet now its for others that I you dismissed,
My heart destroyed with the pain immense,
Holding back the burns that is intense,
To see your face to only greet you with a smile,
To just be by your side for even a little while,
With the knowledge of your secrets tucked away within my mind,
To see you clueless to the truths of you I seem to always find..

You, my darling, give me a lack of words.
You make my life happy.
You make my days peppy.

I can’t think of anyone else I value as much as you.
Love me back.
If you don’t it will surely kill me.

I outstretch my arms, i reach for you.
To the sky. I reach for you.
I sing your name and hair falls into my eye.
Not like a graceful being.
Not a string of ballet dancers.
But i sway, as the music presses on;
The music makes me sway.
I feel your being overcome me.
I dig my toes into the sand
and feel your being overcome me.
A thousand stars outlining the oceans pull.
Colliding onto my thighs. I fall back,
grass in my hair, looking on into the sky,
I see your face. I feel your grace.
I look up and sing.

For living in a country that (mostly) promotes freedom of speech and thought...
For being able to go to college and see the rest of the world...
For the ability to translate the images in my mind onto paper...
For the iPhone which allows access all sorts of information...
For being able to show the work of my hands to the world via deviantART...
Most of the time I take all of this for granted but it helps to have days like these to stop and count my blessings...
Happy Thanksgiving everybody,

I am the song in the trees.
I am constantly growing, expanding,
Touching my branches to the sky:
All the while staying true to the earth,
Firmly rooted in reality.
Dreaming and creating simultaneously,
And breathing through the ashes
To bring new life.
A second chance.
I am alive.
