Lovely WeatherWalking home is ecstasy when clouds decide to cry
To pout with their big puffy lips and spin the wind around
Creating a ballet too elegant to be seen by the eyes of man
It's simply too bad that more people aren't crazy enough
To reach up and ask the lonely clouds to dance.
The puddles create little portals, through which
The world is reflected back against itself more clearly
And on a rainy day the droplets hit these mirrors hard
Shattering the peace to reach back toward the sky
If only they could bounce high enough to return home.
Leaves cling to each other in the gutters or in yards
Hoping for a ray of sun to pierce the biting co
Morbid BeautyGlancing out the window,Morbid Beauty8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I wonder if it's Fall yet.
Because the trees are most beautiful
When they begin to die.
A butterfly fluttered
On the other side of the glass,
Reminding me of the goldfish
Trapped inside our broken aquarium.
Because unlike full moons,
Falling stars and lightning bugs,
I could never be beautiful
Or graceful enough to be like them.
Because tattered and worn notebooks
Are a darker kind of pretty.
Like drowning in cologne and blood
In the middle of the night.

Worn out backing, crumpled pages
Loosened notes and ripped up drawings
Faded color, senseless scrawling.
Lovely songs with twisted meaning
Abandon notes for luck of cheating
Perfect lines like cold cell bars
Keep the words held where they are.
Paper thin and razor edged
Perfect weapon, word "alleged"
Evading pain, weave a lie
Words a tool for those most sly.
Blunt-force trauma, choose a secret
Like a brick to those who keep it
Or slit throats, slow and easy
Words of romance, flawless victory.
Let Me Wash Your Scars AwayIt's natural to want to feel.Let Me Wash Your Scars Away7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
To crave that sick churning in your stomach
That reminds you that you're human.
Sometimes I start a conversation
With someone that I know
Is truly horribly in pain,
So I can remember how that feels.
Sometimes I look for broken glass
Or dying butterflies with wilting flowers
To remind myself once again that
Even the prettiest of wonders can die.
Sometimes I run my fingers
Over a loved ones scars,
Because it makes me sad,
And sad is good.
Because knowing pain is as important as happiness
To those who have felt true nothingness before.
For a man diesBreathe Slowly,For a man dies5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
For a Man dies every second, locked in the grip of the sky.
Walk with every step in mind,
Every twitch of a finger,
Every sound, from your head to the ground,
Keep them in mind.
For a man dies every second, the beginning of an eternal dance with the one in the heavens.
Remember every follicle of hair,
Every eye that stares, every moment of fear,
An evil glare, remember it all.
For a man dies every second, and a child cries for his death.
Live today like you'll wither the next,
For we too, can be locked in the reaper's grip.

She looks away when you catch her eye,
Asks you how you are,
Even though you have just asked the same...
Does this not seem strange?
She acts like being fine,
Is all part of the job description,
She bottles it up inside,
I wonder what she hides.
She sits down and listens to your problems,
Listens and thinks intently,
But have you not seen that far off look in her eyes,
That appears every once in a while?
It never stays for long,
Pops in then straight back out,
Sometimes she has to shake herself,
To bring her thoughts back to reality.

What is this sensation we feel?
Are we just reliving the life we once lived?
Did we die already and just get revived?
Who once decided what's left and right?
Who sees everything in black or white?
Is this whole world just a dream?
Is this all part of some scheme?
The answers to the questions were not written in ink
It always changes no matter how much you think
Because you're neither right nor wrong
People have been searching for answers for so long
Laws and rules,
Are just some of our tools
Tools to make this world seem more vast
If they are not believed in then they are just the past
Do we have some weird ideal?

I thought you were trouble when I met you,
but after sometime I came to like you.
I thought you would bring me demise,
but you were a blessing in disguise.
I thought it will remain a secret love, no doubt
but somehow you found out.
I thought I can ignore you,
but that I can't do.
I thought I'll come to forget you
but until now, my heart says it's you.
I thought that avoiding you is a way to forget,
but my heart doesn't want to let go yet.
I thought I'll have the courage to confess
but my friends said, "I'll just be a mess".
I thought you will stay,
but I realized you'll have to leave someday.

There's nothing to see,
Don't draw back the curtains
You're safe here with me,
So you heard the whistling?
Yes, I've noticed it too,
It's a new type of bird,
They brought over for you
Yes, it's very beautiful,
Or so that's what I hear,
You'll know all about them,
When you're older, my dear,
Ah, you noticed the 'booms',
You're so clever, my sweet,
The noise is from giants,
stomping their feet,
Why is it so dark?
Well, I thought that you knew!
We're playing pretend,
I'm in a bear cave with you,
But we have to be quiet,
Or he'll know that we're here,
Hush, hush, my sweet,
He may be very near,

to tell you some important things that
people are going to forget, not because they want
you to go in unprepared, but because life is complicated
and we're only human.
It's okay to be scared. You're not a coward
for being afraid of sleepovers or missing your parents.
It's comes with being an only child, or so I've found.
You're going to take things at your own pace, and
that's exactly how it should be. You'll come into
your own when you feel you're ready, and if
someone says you're a "late bloomer", that's okay.
Embrace it. Write it on your name tag.
Be happy. I think we often forget that

someone that always cared about me

You were always there for me

Love has a different story to all
Fate has brought us together
and it has been said to all
that love is an amazing feeling
and it has always been right
You have made it to my heart
a place where nobody could ever reach
You told me I had a purpose to live
and that purpose was to be right beside you
There is no place where I feel loved
not in this world we all known as hell
but with you right beside me

You are too weak.
Don't even try.

Just cope with death.
You cannot run.
It seeks you out.
You'll have no fun.

Heed my advice.
Follow it well.
You'll pay the price.

Observe the screams.
It's not dramatic.
It's not a dream.

Your flashlight dies.

Lore of Death~I have been known by many namesLore of Death~5 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Over the course of history
In ancient Greece I was known as Thanatos
Twin brother to Hypnos
Charged with escorting the deceased
To the realm of the underworld
In Ireland I was called the dullahan
A creature with large eyes and ear to ear smile
With my head under my arm I ride to the homes
And call out those whose time had come
The Scottish believed me to be a canine
A black or dark green dog named Cù Sìth
Whose purpose was to take the souls of the dead
And deliver them to the afterlife
Hindu scripture name me Yamaraj
Riding a black buffalo and carrying a rope
I'd lasso souls to take back to Yama

where the beach is the best place to stay
I am blue
I am the main spotlight

shining away to keep the singer at bay

that sunlight that gleams down in just a few rays
I am blue
I am the sweet sound of birds
humming in the trees
Orchestras of birds playing through the day
I am blue
I am a colour
of peace and harmony
forever keeping your heart out of the fray
I am blue
I am the dream
that you dream at night
the one that makes you want to forever lay
I am blue
I am the colour, of the great big moon
