One little thought can bring back little girls
Fairies and dragons and strong, worthy knights
One dose of glitter can shine through the night
Hush, little girl, for the stars in the sky
Shining so sweetly like your stunning eyes
Don't let the nightmares define what you'll be
Notice the beauty within every dream
Hush, little girl, there is no need to fight…
One dose of glitter to light up the night.
Fingerpainted ExistenceI run away with my imagination...Fingerpainted Existence2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Take me by surprise
your sandpaper lips against mine.
Forgetting the fingerspaces
we'd drilled into our mind
when we were children.
Our handwriting barely legible,
making shapes on car windows
with condensation-filled breaths.
And I am blinded by your light.
So we wonder what it's like past
the double-paned glass.
Our styro-foamed-bubble-wrapped lives
melt away like better pasts
the ones we used to know.
Our tears fading into nothingness,
pooling into fingerpaint
painting our own worlds across the windshield.
You fill up the room.
Yet the paint dries, it shrivels away
with the light of each new day,
our fingers peel away the glass
the unfinished landscapes
that we had once imagined.
The flakes amassing beneath us,
towards scorching sunlight.
I have a secret I need to tell you...
Who knew that life could be so painful?
The outside world had once looked beautiful
before the whites of our eyes

As we lay looking at the trees
Sunlight dapples your face
Shadows like an airy lace
I study the angles that you present
You lie still and silently assent
I trace the line of your cheek
You roll toward me and start to speak
We talk and laugh and enjoy the day
Hold each other close in every way
I wake up from this dream
Lay here wishing I could scream
I still search for you in my sleep
Wishing you were a reality I could keep

I do not follow blindly.
It is my moral rule
To reward uniquity kindly.
I am not a sheep
I have my own bad habits.
From the mainstream I leap
Like a little outcast rabbit.
But this rabbit is no fool
I like to think I'm an individual
I am a dull rock among jewels
But my quality to theirs is residual.

The Bloodlust of VladimirMy lust for you is as my lust for blood;The Bloodlust of Vladimir2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Strong and heavy, never ceasing or quenched
So as I push you down into the mud
I wish you to understand why from your bed you were wrenched.
I love you, I do, with every part of my being
Your blood is as tasteful as any cup of wine.
This is the reason why from you I wring-
All of your blood; It must, quite simply, be mine!
I am of the Order of the Dragon, the Blood of Kings,
You should be honored to have been loved by me!
For of me the demons and the angels sing;
"He who is all-powerful, the ruler of the free!'
So stop with your squirming and take me alas,
For you are my thrall, my beloved little lass,
And when you are dead, we shall throw a wonderful Mass,
Reign in your blood we shall! And forever it shall last!

that this is a dream.
None of it's real.
Nothing's what it seems.
But sometimes I wake
with a gasp and a start.
Like being thrown in a lake,
the cold waking my heart.
And I look up in fear
at what I've done.
It's bringing me to tear,
this monster I've become.
The things I've said,
the people I've hurt.
I wish I were dead,
Six feet in the dirt.
This can't be real.
I won't let it be.
I don't want to feel.
I don't want to be me.
So I slip back into dreams,
where everything's okay.
Nothing's as it seems,
but I get through the day.
Alone In The CrowdHelp me shed this cloak of confusionAlone In The Crowd3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And take me back to my home,
I'm tired of this seclusion
Slamming lies into all I've known.
I'm counting eternal hours
Numbers in nocturnal sleep.
The glass in which we shower
Can't hold back what you keep.
I want you to help me dream
And show me how to act.
From a river, into a stream;
What is it that I lack?
The gleam of your necklace
Reflects all of my want.
Is it because I was reckless?
Is it me that they haunt?
Ushered into an unwanted grave
Bound in chains, drowned in steel.
I was made into a social slave
And died as if I were not real.

she has no bile

She's just cloth draped over
soft cloth, it is what
the edges of my hands remember,
recanting dreamily to each other.
I have made her dirty with affection.
We both are waiting for sunshine
to foam over the hills.
If you lay down in the park long enough,
someone will pick you up. Even without hope,
someone will pick you up. Even without hope,
someone will not let you lie there and burn.

The beat becomes my hearts own.
I feel as though the light has shown,

My lips part, and I sing along
To such a redeeming, beautiful song.
These moments come and go too fast.
I enjoy them greatly as they last.
I laugh in glee.
I feel so free.
What magic is this,

Unable to escape my fears

Disregarded, unworthy of even Hell
They keep me alive but only barely
And only talk enough to scare me
While I wait for wounds to heal
They peek in by the window sill
And fake a smile for all to see
But I know what they think of me
I hear their words behind thin walls
To hear them laugh at how I crawl
Misjudged and hated, that's all I am
Even God will not help this lamb.
