The EagleYou can never cage the eagle.The Eagle7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
The eagle, it longs to be free.
You will never cage the eagle.
And neither will you cage me.
For the eagle it has no master.
No master to hold the key.
And as the eagle rides upon the wind,
It feels every breath of air.
And when it sores above the clouds,
No one can touch it there.
It flies over mountains and valleys.
It flies over oceans and seas.
The eagle, it only lives to be free.
It dwells upon a mountain.
Beneath an opaque sky.
For the eagle follows it's heart.
It needs no reason why.
No, you can never cage an eagle.
The eagle will always stay free.
No one will ever cage the eagle.
Just as no one will ever cage me.
A Tribute Poem to Thane KriosJourneys through SpaceA Tribute Poem to Thane Krios4 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
The meeting with an Assassin
A poem dedicated to Thane Krios
You came through the ceiling
With a mission in mind,
An operation to kill
Both the wicked and the not-so-kind.
After you met me
And chose to follow,
We traveled the universe
Amongst dusk and hollow.
Focused on the quest
You'd win with ease,
Bearer of a deadly disease.
By seeing your face
Foes'd run from disaster;
Pity those who tried to escape
The Sniper Rifle master.
As time went by
Amity came to an end,
Please comrade understand
To me you're more than just a friend.
At the brink of saving the world
You left me in a haste,
Dearest love and companion
Don't let the sweet memories go to waste.
Now I'm alone after finished task
Looking sadly at your grave,
Missing you Thane Krios
The fearless and brave.

"I mean, look at her."
Words that echo inside my now empty mind. I look at the images, all the pictures that betray me and everything I believed in. Where did this begin and where will it end? I look at her and begin to compare her to me. All the things she has that I don't, everything she is that I am not, what she believes in that I don't.
"Thank you for being such a good friend."
I remember her saying this to me. The words that feed through my mind, the burning in my heart, the aching in my back. I look back to see if this is really the same person, it is. Every stare, every expression, every pose, the person who once called me friend, now an enemy.
This isn't the first time. This is a repeated deja vu. A nightmare that follows my every step. Will I finally turn a corner where it can't? Will I finally lead where it cannot follow? Will I finally enter a room where I can close the door in it's face?

Growing up on a farm on Mindoir was never easy. We knew how to work hard and had good work ethics. I remember my family as if they were still here beside me. My mom, dad, my five brothers and one sister. All of them. I remember my brothers riding their bikes around the farm. I wished I could ride with them. I felt that longing what seemed to be forever. One christmas, my daddy bought me a bike. He was going to teach me to ride, just like he taught my brothers.
Wind blowin' on my face,
Sidewalk flyin' beneath my bike.
A five year-old's first taste,
Of what freedom's really like.
He was runnin' right beside me,
His hand holdin' on the seat.
I took a deep breath and hollered,
As I headed for the street.
"You can let go now, daddy!" I remember telling him. Soon, the bike was free from his gras

from beneath that cascade of hair,
Never was a maiden purer, more fair
than she to whom the world must look
for salvation. When first I saw that light
from within her fragile form take flight
and caress, surround, enfold that darkness
that had threatened to consume all hope
I knew then my life was hers to lead;
The Queen by whom we would be freed.

A warm hand grasps his
He looks up to see his son
A pair of black eyes stare back
Full of fear
He nods to his son and swallows
An indication that he will be fine
He pulls the bed sheets up more
His son retreats
Back to the small uncomfortable chair
The doors slide open
The doctors lead a woman in
She motions for them to leave
She turns back and looks at him
Then his son
His son stands and makes his way to the bed
She does the same
She looks at him with comfort
But it is difficult
For the pain tries to creep to her face
And his son pulls out a book
She kisses him on the forehead
His son reads a prayer
And the tingling starts
He feels his lungs
Gasp for air
He hears the beep
Of his heart fading
He sees the hurt on their faces
She strokes his head
While his son holds his hand
He watches as the doctors rush in
They all turn to black figures
As he doesn't have to struggle to breath again

Long Ago in a Galaxy far away...
I forged a legacy that will live beyond my day...
I've saved my people three times over,
From Ancient Sith to a hopeless trooper,
Mandalore's crew all came to knew,
that their firepower was to me as water,
Bane adored me, the Jedi revered me,
Even Bastila gave in and pleased me...
If it weren't for my game, none would know Bioware,
I changed RPGs and put em into full gear,
I stomped Mandalore, Malak and the Sith Emperor,
Overwhelmed? Not surprised, go take your temperature.
I'm Commander Shepard and I approve this ass-whoopin,
This cocky jedi is just asking for a beatin.

numbness replaces feelings departed.
I was fooled by emotions
we both claimed to have.
I understand space
but still miss our "love".
I always said I wouldn't get hung up,
not on a woman, not on you.
Looks like I've failed but still
hanging's the last thing I'll do.
Yes it hurts
but life goes on.
I hope we get back
together as one
but if thats unlikely
I'll try to have fun.
It won't be straight away,
it might even take months.
All I can promise is that
your friendship can be enough.

Poetry should be about daydreaming
Fearing, loving and Hating.
Poetry should have rhythm
Just like our very own National Anthem
That explains our very own freedom.
Poetry should be Fearsome
Along with Handsome.
Poetry should show your emotions,
Just for the feeling of lifes motion
Poetry should not be from the head
Because then it just hits a... Dead End.

Why can't I tell you
about how much I doubt?
I truely love you
in every single way
but I'm struggling to believe
you find it that easy to say.
Before it made you nervous,
struck deep with worry and fear.
Now everytime you say it
I fight to hide my tears.
There's something there between you
that much is plain to see.
The fact you acted on it
makes things unclear to me.
I don't want to give you up
and I'd never throw you away
because you're all I think about
each minute of the day.
Give me an honest answer
when I ask you what you want.
Spare me the empty phrases
if I'm just an afterthought.

of this emotion we call love?
So far this phantom
has cost me my speech,
my freedom of expression,
The spectre of tales soon forgot
has misplaced my anger,
causes me to hate everything else,
I shied away from that
I had before
because she wanted more than I would give.
Now I find it reversed
and I want to give
more than she'll recieve.
He offered what she wanted,
Consequences to betray my defences.
Like the walls of Jericho
my heart fell,
but like the horn of destruction,
I find myself entranced by the sound of my pain
from those sweet lips.
The soul crushing delights
that accompany the "I love you's" from your mouth.
So I lay myself defenceless
at your searing love.
I give you the tatters of my soul
to burn inside my chest.

Just one question is all.
An answer I cannot seem to find,
If you would be so very kind...
Mirror mirror why are we here?
Everything is so unclear.
We're given life to live on,
But in an instant it's all gone.
Leaving nothing but a memory,
No footprints in history.
In the shoes of the mundane,
We're forgotten like we never came.
So mirror mirror, what is the point?
This world seems destined to disappoint.
What is the cause for all this pain?
Death is all we ascertain.
Mirror mirror, please be clear,
Why is it we are here?

One night of passion
Kisses in the dark
Scared that some
May be watching
Lusty thoughts and
Smiles so kind and sweet
Wishing, but still fearing
That we might be in to deep
Thoughts and minds
By the wish to be near
To freely show the heat
To the lust and sweet
We finally give in
No need of hiding
In a room just us two
Clothing scattered every where
Skin at last touching skin
Hands roaming, touching
No more fear

Coupons and sales magazines
have become more than just junk mail
and the holes in my pants

and I wonder just how much
my sparse jewelry would fetch
if I said I saw the face of Jesus
in the glimmer of my pearls.
I am beginning to miss the sea I grew up on
so much that I will read bad poetry
just for the mention of a salty ocean breeze.
I feel landlocked and sometimes I'm afraid
that I will never see the world

I would go back just three months.
I would change the outcome
of your act of lust.
I would flip my lid
and cut you out that night.
I would turn up on his doorstep
demanding a fist fight.
I gave him all the blame,
just as he deserved,
but you were still my angel,
a fact you deemed absurd.
Well I've lived now to regret
my lack of action at the time.
I can only blame myself
for your heinous crime.
If it happens again
I'll blame her that I love.
I'll shout and whine and moan
and the blade will cut just above.
I wouldnt slice her there
but rather where it will hurt.
I slice my own body to shreds,
a lesson I won't cut short.

But she doesn't understand you like I do.
I'm by the engine ‒ it's a typical night in space.
I'm watching her lead you by a lace
But she'll never know your story like I do.
But she's got big breasts
I wear gas masks
She's cheap botax
But it's so quiet, I cannot relax!
Wishing for the day when you wake up and find
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time.
If you could see
That I'm the one
Who understands you.
Been there all along.
So, why can't you see ‒
You belong with me,
You belong with me?
Walking the streets with you in your worn out coat
But Liara comes out, talking of a lost boat.
Alone on a park bench thinking to myself,
"So, what's left~?"
And you've got a charm
That can silence this alarm.
I haven't seen it in awhile
Since Ash put you down.
You say you're fine ‒ I know you better than that.
Hey, why would you choose Kaiden over that?

battle for what I love.

If I could turn back time
I'd make different choices,
like what I can stand
and where my mind sits.
If you read this and wonder
why you haven't heard it before
it's because when I'm with you
tormented voices are easy to ignore.
