So young and so used,
Don't stop, the world is watching,
They can't look away.
I am a coward,
I've seen things you won't believe,
I wish you would stay.
Try to convince you,
I made peace with who I am,
Deny who I was.
We cover our scars,
We take hits when we are bored,
They make us look good.
Not afraid to die,
Where will we be tomorrow?
Bear a sincere smile.
I taste only sin,
The night is our memory,
No fear of regret.
Smell the stench of death,
Burning in the lust of youth,
Breathing is shallow.
I glamorized suicide,
Brought stories from down under,
And I'm a hero.

The coolest walk
The sweetest style
The smoothest talk

Obituary Of A FriendshipAfter all this time we finally meet again.Obituary Of A Friendship2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm excited to hear how you've been, my friend.
But when you start to talk I start to abstain.
While I smile, secretly I wish for this to end.
We're thrown back into a time that ended long ago.
What we had in common does not matter anymore.
Again you want a shoulder so you can have a good cry.
I am diplomatic though I sense this friendship does die.
About all the tragedies that happend to you I shall know
While I cannot tell you why my smile becomes so sore.
I am really sorry that things have come to this.
We used to be good friends but we both have changed.
I treasure what we had, but you I won't miss,
Once we parted ways and the goodbyes are exchanged.
We've grown apart and the distance between us is vast.
You talk so much and more yet still nothing has been said.
The conversation runs dry, as it dies we start to brag
About what we achieved, but that's just hoisting the white flag.
There is no sense in trying to keep alive what's dead.
Imitating NatureThe morning sun streamed through a series of large plate glass windows lining the library's east wall, its rays warming the room's wooden paneling and illuminating the cavernous space. Tall bookshelves stuffed with literature from across the world towered over polished oak reading tables, each furnished with a plain, green-shaded banker's lamp. On the far side, a massive painting gracing the west wall depicted the solemn face of Saint Patrick, whose protective presence could be felt watching over the library's sole visitor.Imitating Nature3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
All was perfectly quiet, save for a tap, tap, tapping that echoed in the otherwise silent room. Seated at a desk near the door, glued to the screen of his laptop, Eoghan quietly tapped his pen against the notepad in his lap as his eyes scanned through the different news reports.
Another roadside bomb outside of Kandahar, three dead, all soldiers. God frowns upon careless mistakes gentlemen. You should have noticed the dead dog along the side of the road.

She wants to go
Anywhere at all
She walks into an empty classroom
And collapses into the first chair
Hitting her head against the desk
LEAVE ME ALONE"
Insults keep on throwing themselves
She stands up and
leans her head against the window
Stares at the sun until her eyes hurt
Until her head hurts
A knock on the door
And a group of girls walk in
"We were looking for you"
"Why did you go running off like that?"
She stands up straight
She leaves with them
And leaves the voices
Inside the classroom.
For her to be alone
To kill her
From the inside out.

What if I pull you close?
And whisper you the truth
Will you say “I love you”?
Because you shine light into this dark room
I wish I could turn the whole world to slow-mo
Just so I could see this beautiful flower bloom
Maybe then you’d see how much you mean to me
I go on my days with my heartfelt thoughts
Warmth is what you’ve brought into my feather heart
And all of this just feels like the start
I know that one day, we will never be set apart

Like a broken mirror.
Looking at the wreckage,
My reflection unrecognizable.
A broken image.
A broken heart.
I'm cut by the shards
As I try to piece it back together.
My blood sprinkles the surface
Like a red rain.
The mirror is whole again.
What's left of the dream.
I look at my reflection,
And tears finally begin to fall.

I heard you crying last night
Did you stop trying last night?
You scream there is nothing left
You say there is nothing inside
You used to fly up so high
But you fell to pieces in the sky
You let go of your faith
And threw away your dreams
Try and find something left for us
I'll turn the lights out
Sleep for tonight
I have to leave,
You have to face this alone
You need to build your strength
You lost faith in me
And gave up
You know there is nothing
Left of us
You say it's too late
And nothing hurts
The feelings will come
And some will burn
But some will heal
If you keep strong
You won't hurt anymore
You can lay in the grass
And feel the sun
If you'll just wait for one
Keep shining darling
It's never too late
To turn your life around
Even if only for a day
You can reinvent yourself
And become someone new
Live a different life
And dry off your eyes
Just keep smiling,
I promise you it's not all gone
There is light at the end
All you have to do is hold on

I see you struggling,
You have no motivation, you are fading,
You feel like you're surrounded by lies,
But I know otherwise,
I need you to think,
Let all your feelings out with ink,
I can really help you,
If you just give me the chance to,
I'm here for you and I shall always be,
You can trust me,
You can't keep on doing this to yourself,
I can't even bare the thought of being by myself,
You are beautiful, you are you,
And I love you,
So please, please don't feel bad,
You're only making me sad,
You are my friend,
And you will be until the very end,
Please feel better,
I'll be here forever.

Treat the woman you're in love with the same way you'd want the man who's in love with your sister to treat her-
With utmost respect and integrity intact.
If you don't want your sister to be inappropriately touched, foul-mouthed or gossiped about, then do not do so to the woman you are after. She too is somebody else's sister.

Belongs to the perennial pallbearer.
His countenance cold, even in Kelvin.
Pine forests falling,
Fields somewhere filling with his friends,
They're carving out quarries
And ghostwriting eulogies.
People wonder aloud what's wrong with him.
He knows Dionysus drowns more men,
Venus takes more lives than Mars,
Walking on traintracks,
Eyes crossed like stars.
There's no ghosts left in this town.
In a real city of angels,
In a time called black suit season,
Death is a dial tone.

Here we go again,
The pathway down, down, down,
Trying to make amends.
All I have left to say,
Is that I apologize,
For putting the knife to slay,
Our broken butterflies.

a cold cruel heartless life,
and all I want to do is sink back into the night,
I am not excepted here,
amongst the men with countless fears,
I am not wanted here,

I don't want to live a life,
where all of life is but a fright,
I can not live a life,
cowering from the light,
I sit in the shadows of my pain,
to watch the days just slip away,
shun from the world of all humane,
my heart grows colder as I go insane,
Hades and PersephoneA Hades in his own rightHades and Persephone11 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
lonely and his nights were cold
though the friends of his childhood
kept careful watch o'er his treasures untold,
He found a maiden peaceful there
among the thick rich greens
and tempted her with flowers and jewels
and took her as though a fiend,
She withered in his castle
no light for her hair to glisten
but unlike the evil he so stood reflected
he took heart and stopped to listen,
He sent her back to home and heart
though she took his own in her hand
and once a year returned whistfully
to set a wint'ry glow about his land.
Vampire King 2 Chapter 42 part 2Abby had never seen anything like this but recently that wasn't so strange a thing. The roof of the car flew through the air as if weightless and the bus and minivan lifted into the air just as they were about to hit the car. The creature on the roof was humanoid in form but covered in a writhing mass of tentacles that slithered over its entire body and anything it touched. Huge wings, that were starting to look grimly familiar, spread out and cast a long and ominous shadow over the wreckage in the intersection.Vampire King 2 Chapter 42 part 22 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Julian and his cohort began scrabbling out of the car as Abby just sat there staring in complete disbelief. "Adrian...?" She muttered but the creature jumped from the car to the ground and skewered the two men trying to escape with its silvery tentacles. Blood sprayed over the street and the on lookers now gathering, began to scream and run. The one named Karl started shooting and when this failed, he started to beat the pulsating appendage with his gun.

Bearing gifts of death, on trampled hooves they roar

They come on swift winds, those horsemen four.
Great plagues follow quick, of those horsemen four
Loosening the life through thick pit sores
Along the night, those four cometh
Renowned and imfamed, those four cometh
And the diseased piled high o\' the horizon
They come on swift winds, those horsemen four.
War and famine burn brightly, of those horsemen four
The hungry dying quietly from bloody war
From the Heavens, those four cometh
O, the despair, those four cometh
Fires burn, Lo! Scorching o' the horizon
They come on swift winds, those horsemen four.
O, how they ride and screech, those horsemen four;
O, how they call! A thunderous

"No, that wasn't it. I saw a man."
"Was it John?"

"Almost a man?" She had recently taken to wandering in the fields under gray skies, thinking that she'd find her answers among the abandoned farm equipment and rows of dried corn husks. She never did. Just raccoons. I never heard anything about men who were almost men. "How can someone be almost a man?"
