The shower sprays hot water
The hot water soothes the pain
The pain caused from your abuse
The abuse from your hands
The hands got the strength
The strength came from the fights
The fights started by a comment
The comment was a result of hate
Hate happened from being abandoned from your parents
Can't you see how when people hurt people, they hurt other people.
The Battle of the OkWe all say we are okThe Battle of the Ok4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's never the truth
We want to say a million things on our mind
Instead, a pathetic, small ok suffices
We fight an inner battle
Often, defeat takes us
When are we really ever ok?
I would like to thank the person who can win the crusade
And ask him
How do you do it?

Camellia SkyA "v" slashingCamellia Sky4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
specks of black stark
against deep red folds:
fire & blood cradle
the flock flying
toward safe harbor.
Her bare feet hang off the edge
of a gray cliff,
her brown eyes locked
on the sunset wavering
She sits there
feeling so small
why the heavens shimmer
like the gold-green ocean
Tang of salt in her nose,
burning tears in her eyes,
water crashing ringing her ears,
auburn locks whipping around
crazy halo, lost divine:
She finds solace
in beautiful chaos,
its ebb & rhythm
of life greater
than her own.

But no one walked in.
I laughed but no one laughed with me.
All that's left is a symphony.
It's coming from the back of my heart.
I'm waiting for someone to hear it.
Will you listen?
