Love Has ExpiredI never thought I’d see the day where it happenedLove Has Expired3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
The world should just look away in shame
They always make it sound like love makes the world go round
But they know that it’s already expired
So why do they keep trying to look for me?
This world is filled with so many liars that it’s simply unreal
But nobody cares that most of them get into power
And people only care if they take away their rights
Or if they take away something that they either need or want
That’s what the world is always like
I’m surprised that it took this long to see the truth
That the feeling love has expired by the time you’re in your teens
You think that you know what love feels like
But only because you’re getting what you want
And most of the time all you simply want is to have sex
Unleashing you into the world that is filled with desire
I bet that a lot of fathers are worried about their daughters these days
Since rape is so popular amongst the greedy bastards out ther
Watcher of the NightHe waits in the shadowsWatcher of the Night3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Watching and learning
Trying to resist
His unconquerable yearning
An actor of rare disguise
Covering half-truths with unfinished lies
His plans twist and turn
Taking years for fruition
After which he disappears
A forgotten apparition
While lesser men succumb
To the beckoning temptation
He stands regardless
Steadfast by his station
Vigil of the darkness
Watcher of the night
Countless men have tried
To evade his inhuman sight
He is the sum of his fears
For he chooses what he wants to be
He has uncertainties, he has doubts
But is afraid intentionally
He tends the shades of the mighty
And the shadows of the weak
Stifling their deceit
And plugging up the leaks
He watches and learns
Trying to fit in
But he'll soon realize
It's a battle he can't win
The cycle repeats
However hard he fights
But his fate is sealed
As Watcher of the Night

Give a man a fish he will eat for a day.
Teach a man to fish he will eat for a life time.
Give a man a gun he will rob a bank.
Give a man a bank he will rob the world.
We adapt and adjust.
Constantly dithering on the cusp
Of what is considered wrong and right,
Ensuring that our ambitions remain in sight.
We would be willing to do anything
In order to get what we truly desire.
We would be willing to risk everything
Even putting our friends in the line of fire.
We may share the bounty with others,
Allowing them to experience the fruitful taste.
Given the option we will even care for our brothers.
Just as long as we are well endowed with songs of praise.
We are opportunists.
We are convincing and ruthless.
We are the modern day Judas.
The Tears Of The EarthWhat would you do if the world stopped,The Tears Of The Earth3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Spinning and swirling to a systematic halt?
Would you climb to a mountain majestically high,
Raise your eyes up to the finite electric universe,
And reflect on the redemption of a death so diverse.
Veins line the black with faults of blood,
And I can hear the crazed howls of horror,
Erupt up from the centre of an empty Earth.
Screams swell to scorch the skies above me,
Where sunlight fades to freeze the faces I see.
What would you do if the world finished,
Falling and frolicking to a fatalistic end?
Would you swim to a sea seductively low,
Embrace your demise in that endless dark space,
And regret on the reclamation of a pitiless place.
Bones cover the gray with scars of greed,
And I can hear the fazed sighs of sorrow,
Burst forth from the core of an eccentric Earth.
Calls condemn to curse the cries around me,
Where twilight dies to damn the dead I free.

That's what I seem to be.
It seems no one knows I even exist.
I'm surprised some people even know my name.
All I hear is "Who's that?"
or "I didn't know she was here."
It seems no one knows I'm here.
It's not like they care.
Thats what I am.
But, I'm here.
I've always been here.

she seeks the name of his first love
this man was nice and tender
he was aware of her past
he had never judged her crimes
kneeling before his grave, her hands immersed in this cursed land
she cries her sadness and her distress
I loved you, my angel
excuses me, I had not the choice
the abandonment was the only solution
WordsmithsTo all those who admire me, admire any authorWordsmiths3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
(simply for being a lunatic which in all tongues is called a writer):
There is something you must understand.
These words are not ours.
We did not create them.
They simply sit, waiting quietly in the dusty wings of our brain.
We are the directors of the play, telling the words where they must go, what message they must give to the audience, what they must represent.
The words, so quiet and compliant,
Impact others if we know how to use them skillfully.
For we are just hoping you will enjoy the show.
A Tragic TaleI sit here and listen to the chattering birdsA Tragic Tale3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The sweetest sound that my ears ever heard
The sun has risen to cast off nights veil
It's days like this that remind me of my tale
Heart-breaking in nature, I'll relate it to you
This tale is of tragedy, and yes, it is true
There once was a man as happy could be
He'd sing and he'd laugh most cheerfully
He was strong, he was steady and smart
He had but one woman who lay claim to his heart
To him the most beloved person, his wife
She was his everything, his meaning to life
Seemingly from nowhere, his lover fell ill
And felt deaths hand, a breath-taking chill
And try as he might he couldn't save his betrothed
He stayed by her side until he was sure she was lost
He cried every night to express his lament
He vowed never again to be happy or content
Sorrow from loss soon poisoned his life
He broke down and took his own with a knife
When they found him he had a note by his side
It read simply, "I'll love her till the day that I die."
Nothing can b

The sweet embrace of your arms
The sweet embrace of your lips
Never forget her smile of meeting
Never forget her face as you left
Hooded figure in the land of heat
The meeting place of dreams I never knew
Escape and but don't say goodbye
Escape to the airport
To wake up from this beautiful dream
Realise a thought never known
Leave with a smile of an attraction
Built on longing for meetings between souls
Never forget her smile of meeting
Never forget her face as you left
Don't forget that feeling of waking

Your revenge can wait.
Whoever did you wrong,
Can never know the hurt,
That made you strong.
You know it's a part,
Of you're aching heart.
Whoever broke your smile,
Can never understand the pain,
That turned you vile.
Don't give up on love,
Though you'll feel rough.
Whoever killed your hope,
Can never believe the longing,
That more you cope.
My Scars from LifeI feel the scarsMy Scars from Life3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
on my soul
will never fade away.
The cut are so deep
that they won't ever heal.
The wounds are from battle
with myself and others
And from carrying burdens
I was not meant to carry.
What has the world done to me?
Why has it scarred me this way?
What scars did you contribute?

BeautyBeauty rose out of that silent sea,Beauty3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Her eyes were tepid with wild thunder,
And then she turned and looked at me.
Me; a meagre man who knew no lady fair,
Nor one of care as she snaps my heart asunder.
Beauty flew up to that sinister sky,
Her lips were dark with mad desire,
And then she turned and started to cry.
Cry; a crude curse who knew no mortal smile,
Nor one so vile as she scars my aura in fire.
Beauty stood up on that scarlet skin,
Her locks were rouge with quiet rain,
And then she turned and walked on sin.
Sin; a sordid spirit who knew no lover true,
Nor one in clue as she saves me from my pain.

Things now won't be in disguise
They will be so clear
Because the truth lies
Behind my lies
I must be careful
I must be wise
For things might be different
But There won't be any surprise
Because the light in me will rise
I won't be blind
I won't be tied
To old things in me died
Don't you see what lies behind the lies?
Come & see through my eyes

Even when I try to push them out of my mind
They creep into my heart
They corrupt it

Sometimes when they’re strong
They leak out of my eyes
But they always come back
These dark feelings will never leave.

To love and life we sing
About love we write..
About life, dreams, and the light..
So let's sing..
The roads of life
Just like a ring..!
Circles and circles lay around..
Or maybe a forbidden string!
Love is a king!
Who usually wear a ring..
So how can i argue with a ruler?
I am just made of earth!
My love has a wing..
And i don't..
I am like a tree..!
I am made of earth..
To the roses i give birth..
I am winter
I am spring..
I am just made of earth!
And you are just like a dream
I'm made of reality sting!
For you i sing...
Maybe one day instead of holding leaves
I'll hold a wing!
Turn On The DarkTurn On The Dark3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When fragile hopes and fears collide
It waits for you on the other side
I can feel the tremors in my soul
I've grown afraid of the masquerade.
Barely holding on, I'm losing control
Wide awake, I confide in the shade.
Sinking so slowly down the drain
Much like the purple pill I swallow.
A voice unheard is a voice in vain
Black rain falls and teardrops follow.
Shadows loom throughout the room
They cover my eyes like a veil.
Just flip the switch, it'll be over soon
Just pull the curtain over the pale.
The transition rattles my psyche at first
Yet it's a feeling I've always invited.
For when my body becomes submersed
I discover my worlds benighted.
I wonder how much time has past
Fading deeper into the stark domain.
A place like this, shows no contrast
But it's a place I must ascertain.
I call this smoke-filled cell a prison
That harbors questions of fruition.
But like a zombie, I have risen
To greet the face of my mortician.
I'm taken with its abysmal skies
Now I reap the chilling silence
You've ChangedI don't know how I am meant to feel anymoreYou've Changed3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Every time I look at you
I feel betrayed and outraged
You were someone
Who I could trust with everything
But now you've changed
And I don't recognise, who you have become
Why was it now, that you decided to turn
Into something I thought you never would
You have hurt so many of your closest friends
And you don't seem to care
I don't know why I keep on trying to hold on,
To something that I know is fake
We never really had
A true friendship now did we?
You say that you have been hiding
Who you really were
You were lying to us all
And that really hurts to know
I don't like the person you have become
What happened to the girl
That I used to know
The shy girl who cared about her grades
And who could tell, when her friends were upset
What happened to the girl that I met last year
The one that was so afraid to talk to me
After we had met that day in tech
I thought that this could last
But you've proved that I was wrong
No matter how many times you h

I used to smile, I used to sing
I used to be so very happy
I used to be
And then you trapped me
The piece of paper
On the table
A little story
Of a traitor
On the purest heart
To lie about
I was the paper
You were the words
You violate me
So I got lost
I am the memory
You are the ghost
I won't be treasuring
You inked the paper
You inked my soul
It won't get better
It won't let go
They will retell this story
The piece of paper gonna burn to ash
And we will shine in endless glory
But it will never heal this painful gash

I'll need some form of hope.
