Last to leaveThe park is dark tonight while I'm drinking,
the shadows of friends have long retreated.
Bright orange city lights tinge my thinking
Lying in the grass alone, defeated.
My bottle now empty, discarded glass,
no longer a den for spirits and mirth
sequesters the moon on the dying grass;
an icy blue light for unworthy earth.
The vodka I drank still teases my tongue
while cold night air penetrates my clothing.
Salty bitter fire between each lung
Keeps me warm from the cold of self loathing.
The park is spinning as I try to leave,
but I fall back down to my knees and heave.
Trust: A NooseTrust, the rope that bound my heart to yoursTrust: A Noose6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sweet and innocent like children holding hands
Though the rain falls and violently pours
Bound we hold on with future plans
Through much and more the rope held tight
But slowly the rope began to fray
It chokes me gently when I'm alone at night
Choking me more as you slip away
No longer children you let go of my hand
The rope fraying further with your aid
Little by little from my hand like sand
Our trust torn and dangerously frayed
One day you will leave me and fall away
I had tricked my self, this rope a ruse
This rope you frayed and left me with
Now my death a tattered noose
Drink With MeOne drink finds me pondering lifeDrink With Me6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Two drinks make me think
Three drinks and I want some more
Deeper and deeper I sink
Four drinks and I'm in love again
Five drinks my hearts been torn
Six drinks the world begins to spin
And I feel old and worn
Seven drinks and I begin to die
Eight drinks and I'm alive once more
Nine drinks and I hate myself
As I lay purging on the floor
Ten drinks maybe i should give in
Eleven drinks I won't give up
Twelve drinks now I'm at the end
Of what was left in an empty cup
Kiss Me LoverOne moment two hearts meetKiss Me Lover8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Met through touching lips
More powerful than any kiss
A brush from finger tips
The soft hand of good intent
A caress from souls to hearts
A heart beat's sweet betrayal
Is where the affair starts
One more kiss goodnight
My lips beg one last time
Kiss me dear sweet lover
Love my darkest crime

I think thats a stupid thing to say, why would you say something like that?
Because when you look at me my toes curl and my stomach flutters.
Is that a quote from a book?
No. I dont think so. I dont know. It all gets a little mixed up sometimes.
So you love me like they love in books.
Question or statement?
Question, then. And, yes. I love you like Scarlett loves Rhett, like Elizabeth loves Mr. Darcy, like-
Stop, just stop. Dont love me like that. What happens after the last page?
We continue on loving like happily-ever-forever.
No, wed drop off, we'd end. Love isnt static, it doesnt continue in a flat line. Who can carry the same tune for years? We rise, we fall, we bump arms and step on each others toes. Ill annoy you because I cant stand going to Chr
The GrimThe trees, they shudder,The Grim11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The sun, it hides
As from the darkest pit arrives
The silent lord of death's disguise.
He sat upon a throne of thorns
And to her soul he bloody scorned
From every kiss that led him pain
From her lips of lust contain.
Now he roams within the land,
A sharpened weapon in his hand
Made from bones, he walks the night
With tasks to take souls to the light.
But he smiles, an evil grin,
To his lair he takes them in,
The only life that he can share
After kissing her, he fatally dared.
He was thrown out of sight
No more to witness such delights.
Satan took his life away
For touching Sin he led astray.
But she was kept at Satan's side
For his commands she did obide,
But now the Grim's forever alone,
And all that's left is a body of bones.
To feel no more an emotion of heart,
Satan took his heart apart
And with his last words forever his sorrow,
"Dead today, dust tomorrow."
Trust is brokenCan I trust you now?Trust is broken11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
After all the pain you seared through me,
You screamed, you yelled,
But I would always stay strong,
I never gave in,
Always forgot, your lies and deceit,
But it got too much,
No longer could I fight,
One blank piece of paper would share my pain,
"Are you ok" it would say,
As the tears leaked down,
Scream that's all I can do,
Scream the hatred scream the pain,
The paper would look in fright,
What was happening to me?
Was I going crazy?
Am I going to fall into myself?
Will I stop the pain?
Could I see the light at the end of each day?
Am I still strong?
Like before you broke me?
Do you still shadow my life?
Will you ever see the fright?
The paper felt the pain,
And it heard my cry's.
I Love Everything About YouI look at you with tears in my eyesI Love Everything About You11 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
You turn your head in shame
You hold your hands over your face
You think you are to blame
Your wrists are like your note-pad
They're covered with your pain
The scars they burn so deeply
Just above the vein
The razor blades are just like pens
They write down your very mind
They release your pain and anger
That's hidden from the naked eye
You only wish to leave here
To forget all your sorrow
But you refuse to let me down
With no hope left for tomorrow
You strive on toward the blank of nothingness
For you have no reasons to
But you can't quite seem to understand
How much I would miss you
Even if I'm ignorant
You see not of what I feel
I feel for you with all I have
What I feel for you is real
I love your very essence
I love your smile, your eyes
I love your voice, your being
Nothing of you I could despise
I can't hold you here forever
I can't keep you long
I figured maybe we'd be together…
But all I have is this song…
Sugar and ShadowHere the voice it whispers sleepSugar and Shadow6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You close your eyes to fall away
As you do the shadows creep
They writhe and crawl as thick as clay
Lulled by sugar the sweetest of notes
A voice so sweet it caresses and dotes
And as you fall deeper under its spell
The shadow it creeps and starts to swell
The shadow like hand clutching your throat
You're falling hard and cannot save
But savor the taste of that voice's note
Deeper you must fall in and crave
When the light starts to shine on your happy grave
The shadows they melt releasing your breath
The voice it will hide in your head like a cave
Unwillingly spared a much sought after death
Remember to BreatheFalling into the deep and the gloomRemember to Breathe7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A sudden shock wave of cold
Her lungs burning speak of her doom
But to fear she refuses to fold
Clawing in space for something to grab
Up towards the light in her eyes
Near death her hand makes a stab
Survival her ultimate prize
From the ice she pulls herself up
But she leaves her mortal sheath
Crumbling back into the deadliest cup
She forgot to remember to breathe
WaitingHow bitter sweet a lonely nightWaiting6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A lover waits for his love's return
What heart flutters at the sight
Or lack there of to crash and burn
To waste away for a single hope
That they may remember you
Oh what can one do to cope
Short of another to pursue
Alone I wait for you tonight
Wanton, waiting, for your word
Forgotten I wait for your delight
But sparse is anything from you heard
So now I lie me down to sleep
And hope tonight I may not die
If I am gone perhaps you'll weep
Or maybe I'm not worth a cry
Goodnight my love and pleasant dreams
You're in my prayers as I close my eyes
My pillow will smother all of my screams
And the drakness will hear all my sighs
laceWhat is it like to bind your limbs in lace?lace10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To control your very being?
My own little doll of ceramic beauty.
Your are more than my pretty face.
Lace is what holds you to me.
Wrapped around my fingers you dance upon my desk.
I control your every movement and yet me you don't resent.
You come when I call you because i move you my self.
I broke your spirit long ago and you love me for it.
Until I find another doll to brake you are mines forever.
Defiantless yet full of vigor inspired by my finger.
I move you to and fro and for now you will go.
The shattered ceramic of the others lie mangled at your feet.
Brake our binding bond of lace and rest forever in pieces.
Oh yes, like the mangled nothings at your feet.
An eternity of SunshineWhat heavenly light plays on my faceAn eternity of Sunshine8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
After what one evening made an eternity
A kiss of a tear spilled from the sun
Washes away the evening's enmity
Kisses laced with dew drops and honey
Are fed to my mad wanton lips
Dried and cracked from the evening cold
Each kiss is balm from tender finger tips
The ocean of night seperates us no more
The pure light of day a sure sign
Today we can kiss and embrace each other
One day is made an eternity of sunshine
