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.

I am beginning to miss the sea I grew up on
so much that I will read bad poetry

I feel landlocked and sometimes I'm afraid

(This is a short piece done in Kiara Shepard's point of view, using the lyrics of the song "You Can Let Go Now" by Crystal Shawanda. Hope you enjoy!)
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

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

I'm so confused.
I don't fucking know!
So I'll cut myself,

I hate you with the passion,
I love you to death.
You are worth my blood,
You're not worth my breath.
I'm so confused,
all this over love...
You make me feel like a crow,
but, then I feel like a dove.
So I'll cut until it goes away,
cause I will not love you.
I'll cut until it goes away
cause I don't know what else to do.
I would rather cut myself and bleed to death,
then love you at all.
But, I would rather cut and bleed,
then let you take the fall.
So now I have found myself,
Frozen in this deathly trance.
Because I'm hopelessly stuck,

Hey Church, don't be so mad.

Would you please let me back into the base
So I can start to make you happy.
Hey Church, I'm kind of scared.
Tex just told me that she might kill me.
She said she might kick me out of my skin.
What does that mean? Can you explain it?
Anytime you're getting mad, it's not so bad.
It's not my fault. Let's just say TUCKER DID IT.
We all know he's really dumb, oh, here he comes.
We should go before we catch his pregnancy.

I'll do that and then it will be food-nap time.

"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?

it's thundered right through.
I've tumbled from heights
I climbed to with you.
Haunted by your scent
when I lay down to rest.
Surrounded by your essence,
finding no space inside my chest.
I've tried to turn away,
to live normal for a week.
I've tried to remain strong
and not let my tears leak.
I don't know what you've done
but I've never felt it before.
Snatched away so sharply
I can't feel anymore.
I sense remorse,
pain and sadness.
I doubt I will pass
if this is one more test.
There's a hole where you were
deep in my heart.
Not being able to hold you
is tearing me apart.
I miss you dearly
but I won't beg and plead.
If you take me back
I want it to be for me.
I don't want you to feel guilty,
sorry for what I've become.
If you feel you love me
or that you'd rather we had fun.
I'll fight your fears beside you
morning, noon and night.
I want to be your saviour
and make everything alright.
I want to be your equal,
your lover so passionate.

As i stand in the dark hours before the dawn. I cant help but wonder, "Am i just a pawn?" Does the darkness flow though me or try to take ahold of me?
Does the sword in my hand, defend the weak or destroy the meek? If there is no emotion and peace is a lie, Why do i look upon the fallen and fight the urge to cry?
I've seen the light and felt the rage, Fought the good fight and killed like a plague. Here i lay in the darkness of the night and think of the warmth of light.
Im neither good nor evil, for both are a lie. One thinks they are pure, the other lives in the dark. Neither can exsist without the others spark.
So am i a fluke, just a trick of the mind? Or am i the future one without sides?
As the sun rises and warriors prepare for battle, i realize now what this all means.
There is no peace, war never changes, and peace is a lie. We live, we fight, we love, and we die. For darkness and light flow all around inside.

your vowels tripped over my teeth.

now im afraid you dont even notice the smudges under my eyes
where insomnia pressed his wretched thumbs
to hold me still as he
kissed me deep and stayed the night.
if you never wanted me, why didnt you just tell me so?
i still remember the night you squeezed me so hard my heart popped like a bubble.
you could have fashioned me a new one out of liquid soap and a plastic wand,
but you said you had no air left in your lungs.
you take my breath away, you said.
and i guess that last breath-stealing kiss was a punishment of sorts.
if i took your breath, shouldnt i have twice as much?

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

Just for the feeling of lifes motion
Poetry should not be from the head
Because then it just hits a... Dead End.

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.

There's something there between you

I don't want to give you up

Give me an honest answer

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.

Just when I thought I was done.
Well, ain’t it fun,
To be a nervous wreck?
Only I’m a big kid now.
To be the resident
When you’re not beautiful.
God, I sound emo.
And so maybe I am
(by definition, at least)
But I feel like a sham –
What am I to you?
Would you care
If I lived out my dark little fantasies?
Got swallowed by the dark seas,
Of my soul?
Would you care
If I went back to the blade
That you forbade
Me to seek solace in?
If you knew what went on in my head,
A million different ways
To make me dead,
Would you tell me to just
‘Not feel down’ anymore?
If I could stop feeling this way,
Stop thinking like this?

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.
