Does running away help?
Well let ask you you a question,
Do you heal a wound with fire?
Suicide takes away pain
You say so sadly
But it takes away the happiness
From you and all the others
Why, why, why
Echos in your head
Voices you try to silence
But they just move instead
You'll run away, and then what
Do you know the world at all?
Is this the place that you grew up in
No, not at all
If you have a scrap what do you do
Do you pour more pain on yourself
What do you think your parents would say
And your friends as well
Never say you don't have
Friends who are there
They're always just around t
Night LifeNight Life2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
The night sky blankets me, a quilt made from love.
I adore to gaze up at the stars that twinkle high above.
The crickets chirp their lullabies, a constant sound of peace.
I hope this night life that I have is never to be ceased.
The lone wolf perches on his hill and howls at the moon
As if to say, "thank you for ending the afternoon."
The lightning dances and plays in the wide night sky
Putting on a show for people glancing by.
The fireflies emerge from their homes, signaling end of day.
As if they're expecting all the children to come from their own and play.
The moon watches us night gazers from way up in the sky.
It shines light

You've got a foe in me
Gonna smack you in the head
Gonna land you in a hospital bed
You just remember what your rival said
Man, you've got a foe in me
Yeah, you've got a foe in me
You've got a foe in me
You've got a foe in me
I will tie you to a kitchen chair
Then kick you down eighty-seven flights of stairs
Might get a few bruises, but I don't care
'Cause you've got a foe in me
You've got a foe in me
Some other folks
Might be a little bit bigger than I am
Rougher and tougher too, maybe
But none of them
Will ever hate you the way I do
It's me and you, pal
And as the years go by
Our hatred will never

One, Four, Fourteen
More pink and red than you've ever seen
Flushed cheeks and hearts aflutter
A day of chaos where no-one is sober
A day I once worked for a smile
A smile I haven't seen for awhile
One, one, the only one
The one who shines like the morning sun
The one star in the city sky
the one admired by the passersby
One in a million
But my one in a billion
It's four, it's four
What am I anxious for?
All that's waiting is an empty seat
So why does my heart skip a beat
It's just the time, it's just an empty chair
Nothing new, nothing so rare.
It's four and I sit in this lonely seat
A flower in hand, and a heart in de

Great God, this is an awful place.
Snow looks like canvas.
The long walk

The howling wind rings in their ears

I wonder if we can do it.

But it is not here.
The sun shines brightly, but there is little warmth in it.

But no one heard him.
Now there are only blackened fingers

Faith: IntroductionThere was peace that night and the only glow was orange. Soon more lights emerged and people started to gather around this sight. A house was on fire and fire fighters tried their hardest to put it out. Through one of the windows a boy of six was looking out. The fire was seeping into his room and boy became worried and instinct told him to jump but anxiety prevented him. Finally a roar was heard and the roof caved in and fire took over burning the boy slightly as he leaped out and landed in a blanket. The boy was recovered and found unconscious and so his rescuers decided to put him in the nearby ambulance.

A Place Of Discoveries Years ago, when I was only a small child, I lived in a tiny brick house. All though it was small and insignificant to many, it holds many cherished memories. Even now, I still look back and remember the times of my childhood.A Place Of Discoveries3 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
One of my most vivid memories was of the backyard of my childhood home. We had a large screened in porch and long strip of land that led to the canal out back. When I was little I spent a lot of my time outdoors exploring the yard and searching for interesting treasures. I was often fascinated by even the simplest of things, like a bird feather or sparkling pebbles in the dirt. I would collect and store them in

You pull at my heart,
As the moon pulls at the tides,
The oceans of my soul waving to and fro,
Just as the waves are created by the pull of the moon,
Are these tumultuous emotions created by you,
When you are gone it is like still water,
An ocean without a moon to move it,
A poem without a muse
BattlefieldBattlefield1 year ago in Philosophical More Like This
Sometimes the lines are so clearly defined,
Evil,saintly,life and death.
When I try and fit into the grey is when I falter.
I know what to do...
Yet I do not do what I should.
I seek comfort among the filth.
Cleanliness is foreign soil.
Brainwashed into putrid mud caked belief.
I am the dead I see in a mirror.
Acceptance of any thing else...impossible.
I am supposed to teach of love,joy and happiness.
Hate,fear and loneliness are on my darkened side,
Of this battlefield.
Sometimes I feel a cleansing rain,but oh so shortly
The mud calls for me to climb down into what seems normal.

"You got that right, brother."
Plucking the headphones out of her ears, she turned the volume up on her music player as loud as it could go. The music could be heard through the small room, and she spun the wires around her fingers.
"Around and around they go, where they stop, nobody--"
The buds whipped her fingers painfully, the length of the wires wrapped tightly around her hand.
"Go figure. Everything ends, doesn't it?"
She sighed, and as she got up off her bed, she noticed her phone on her nig
SpentThere's something that I want to say.Spent2 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I've been trying to for days,
but I just can't figure out how,
so I guess I'll just start talking now.
You know well that I worry a lot;
I'm in a panic, more often than not.
But this is something especially bad,
this is about what we once had.
Do you recall what happened to us?
I just remember how we were both crushed,
but didn't want to say anything,
for fear of the words the other would bring.
I need to know if it's true, what you said.
Would you really want to see me dead?
You might've been able to, had he not come;
the one who saved me when I was numb.
I just want to know what you think of me,

First Page: The chase had begun. The area went dead silent. My heart was planning to leap out of my chest as I ran in the darkness with only a flashlight to illuminate my way. A drop of cold sweat glides down my face. I already mistake one of the trees to be Him until I flash my light on them. My paranoia rose each second, but I am still running as fast as I can, not daring to look behind me.
Second Page: My hair began to tense and my skin crawled. The moon had disappeared, being overlapped by the darkest clouds I have ever seen. I bit my lip, hoping in vain that it would control my rising panic. It did very little. My lungs are on fire. My
FallingFalling8 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
I sat, shivering, on the edge of my bed, wearing nothing but my blue night gown and a pair of old, tattered socks. I simply sat, for a while, staring at nothing and thinking. I remembered going to bed, but not waking up. It was pitch black outside, not even the moon broke through to brighten this dreary night. It was then that I heard it: music. It came from outside of my room; it had a light and eerie tune. It reminded me of a song that my father told me about, one that the sirens would sing to the men out at sea.
I walked out of my room and across the hall. I slowly turned the door knob to the room from which the music came. The

Look, it's a hole in my heart
I dug this hole in the dark
What would you do
If I wanted your soul
Would you give it to me
You make me forget
I rose out of;
Out of these graves
I've risen like Lazarus
So what if I cut myself
So what if I kill myself
Would you cry
Your beautiful silver tears?
I won't lose my religion
Don't ever give up your religion
But give me your soul

Fast turning black shapes, out of reach;
And Sylvie said that my time will come,
And I believe her, but sometimes
It takes everything I have,
Battling a greater army up-hill
Against the cold lashing rain,
And the mud grips and pulls you deeper.
The way the wind blows the trees,
In a slow distant meaning,
Like smoke from a distant fire
It takes you back to times long gone,
Smells and memories, a shaded wood in summer,
Tents and dwellings scattered through trees,
And ropeways that sag in the sun,
All for a purpose, for a belief, for a hope.
And when my time comes,

Hush these dreams that make you weep.
I will stay by your side though the night,
Calming your cries, and all of your fright.

My lullaby will slowly seep,
Into your head, and clear your thoughts,
All these tears I never thought,
I'd see you cry,

I'll come back stronger than before
Stronger than I thought I would ever have to be
Like a phoenix from the fires of Hell
I will return
Once more to the helm
I will take back control
I will burn my bridges
I will be steel
And reclaim my life
Don't pretend, it's simple
It's only experimental
Try to be something else
A little sentimental
Why welcome the future
When I'm locked in the past
The joys of rapture
All of me
You let me in
So go. Walk away.
I deserve better than what you've done
And I regret all you've become
Everything because of me
Everything the world can see
I want it

And sheds a tear tonight
Cling to me
Ever so tightly
Dead Man WalkingMy home becomes a bleak, dull, placid room,Dead Man Walking1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My mind a blank, my eyes now damp with tears,
Simplicity gives way where hardships loom,
My body tires as days drag on like years.
Daily routine becomes a pointless chore,
Now left with nothing new to hear or say.
Dark rust and stains begin to plague the door,
The burning sun no longer lights my day.
The night is no less merciless at all,
The starless dusk brings no such peace to me,
When all I want is time to let me fall,
And rest where I can finally be free.
Within the very home I live, I strive,
Not knowing what it's like to be alive.
