It sure seems hazy.
Why do I keep doing this?
Searching for elusive bliss.
I find myself ever chasing.
From one to the other, racing.
I know what will happen after.
And it sure ain't no laughter.
I can't stand how it makes one feel.
It takes a long time for me to heal.
But for some reason I still do it.
I know, stupid, I must admit.
I keep thinking this is the one.
After all this time, I've finally won.
So how come it never is?
And I just sit here with my frizz.
Why am I the one who always gets hurt?
And want to bury myself within the dirt?
Don't I deserve better?
What, no time for a letter?
Sometimes I think I might be messed up.
But then again who isn't?
My Blood, My VengeanceGranting you forgiveness, none,My Blood, My Vengeance8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
For what matters most is what you've done,
Don't take it too kindly,
Thinking you'll ever get away,
But alas, you are sadly mistaken,
If you think that even for a moment,
That you will ever get away,
I am patient, no more,
Crime that you committed,
Cannot be pardoned,
Your soul will not have peace,
I will hunt you down even as you plead,
I have no mercy,
I do not forgive,
I forget your crimes, not,
They are burned within my mind,
As I see the one I loved suffer,
From such an unspeakable sin,
How dare you even think,
That you could commit a crime,
Thinking it justified,
I say peace, not anymore,
I wage a war that destroys the world,
Hide, you coward, hide,
Run, you bastard, run,
Nothing on Earth,
Will restrain me,
Not even Death himself,
Your plea for mercy, denied,
I grant no forgiveness,
I grant no mercy,
I grant no relent,
For your crime is too great,
Such deed cannot be erased,
My rage cannot be replaced,
I murdered you,
For I don't forgive,
For I don

Here's to the teachers who never asked
The students and peers who always passed
Here's to the man who sat on the road
The homeless and weak who cracked the code
Here's to the animals who sat by my side
The big and small ones who held me as I cried
Here's to the father who wanted to know why
The nieces and nephews who waved goodbye
Here's to the counselors who wanted to hear

Here's to the woman who grasped the hard truth
The doctor and nurse who labeled my papers “Ruth”
Here's to the teddy who grasped my hand

The mean and cruel who still called me “Seth”
Here's to the people who prayed not for me
The good and evil whose 'morals' I couldn't see
Here's to the gates who opened their arms
The angels and guardians who meant no harm

I'm always fine.

But honestly, I'm fine.
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.
Do you ever notice,
How she never says whats truly on her mind?
Does it worry you?
Keep you up at night?
Her skirt it twirls,
In the midnight sun,
As she spins around,
Never letting you see what she holds.
When you get an honest answer,
When she can look you in the eye,
When you ask how are you,
And do not recieve a lie.
Only then will you truly know her,
When Talking To DragonsWhen in the presence of a dragon...When Talking To Dragons11 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
You must stay calm,
and let your fears wave away.
Like the gentle pull of the ocean.
They look down on you with slender eyes.
Judging your every breath.
As you shallowly take in your gasps,
like quick streams of water rushing down a steep hill.
When speaking to dragons...
You must be brave.
Act with confidence that your words speak well,
and go without vexation or indignation
For a wrong word could mean termination.
They will listen to what you have to say
with the ears of a thousand mocking birds.
Until of course you speak astray,
and the rest is left to their flaming breath
When listening to dragons...
You must behave.
Allow them their prudence and wisdom,
for dragons are the perfect beings.
And they know all.
Why do you wish, oh young one, to consult the dragons?
Is it because your lost is a world without paths?
A world so dark and without any maps?
Does the life you live serve you no happiness?
Is it your own kind to blame?

Beneath the trinkets and lace.
I've kept it buried deep.
In hopes no one will find it's hiding place.
It holds treasure.
That's rarely been touched.
I've kept it hidden.
It's been shattered enough.
If by some unusual miracle.
You stumble by it's place of rest.
Hold it safely in your hands.
And never let it go.

By burning waters, and smoldering bridges,
I await the genesis of our animosity.
Make the move that gives me permission to strike,
make the move that will bring about your end.
Near draws the line that which I advise you to never cross.
Though to my eyes comes the image of your sprinting legs.
It would seem, that through your veins flows pure pestilence,
and that you wish to bring upon me, nuisances by any cost.
Good God, such a fool bound for my throat,
knowing not the patient blade that waits.
Honor averts it's eyes, as your charge draws to an end.
It wishes this good and done, just as I.
A swift jerk of my arm to your direction,
and make you, a last descent to the ground below.
Then burden leaves my shoulders,
as life outward, pours from your filthy heart.

so I could have a reason to drown

DreamDon't ever stop feeling what you want to feel. Reel in all the emotions you care to hold deep inside you, and nurture them within your heart. Embrace the sensation of being the only one to truly change your future, as long as you shove past all your doubts and reach the highest capacity your fingers can brush against. Advance towards your goal with your courage for a sword, justice for a shield, and all your hope forging the rest of your armor to brave every adversity you face. Make your passions you have in life happen, as long as you remember to accomplish one simple act.Dream1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Life Sucks, So DieI may not be nice,Life Sucks, So Die1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I may not be kind,
But there is something
On my mind.
It is something
That I must share;
It is the reason
Why life isn't fair.
Life may not be kind,
Life may not be nice,
But it is what it is and that
Has to suffice.
We don't get a choice;
Life is just this
And we are forced to rejoice.
We must be thankful
For every and all
awesome and awful;
The rise and the fall.
It could be worse,
You could be in a hearse,
But what if that's what you want?
What if that's you're dream;
If it makes you smile and beam?
Then you're an outcast,
And the won't let you leave.
And your life just got worse.

The sky is dark
I haven't got any luck, no
I try to find
a way to escape
But they don't let me walk, no
There's no obstacle
I can't beat
But I'm stuck in this chair
I see through the window
and I find out
People are running for their lives
I have no power, but
If you want war I'll give you war...
My days are dark
The sky is grey
I can find a solution
for my country
But I think I'll do it again

Kind words whispered in my ear,
Consuming burden of these chains,
Let me fall asleep in here,
Forgotten in this empty pain.
My body’s being ripped apart
And the pain’s too much to bear!
I’ve lost the warmth of my heart.
I’ve lost myself and you don’t care.
I’m still begging for salvation
And you’re still walking away
While your perfume of red carnations
Remains faded in the air.
I don’t blame you, but my hate
Overwhelms me with disgrace
And even if my soul’s decayed
I must escape this filthy place!
This time I’ve lost myself to grief
And gave my heart to endless darkness.
Despite your prayers and beliefs
You have done nothing to stop this!
Lying numb in this cold prison
The wet air’s hurting my lungs;
My teary eyes see all in crimson —
There's liquid iron on my tongue.
What is this poignant feeling
Dragging me in agony?
Something gross and horrifying:
Tissues grind inside of me!
When I die don’t hold my hand

they can teach us fact
You can travel to a whole new world

Emo does not mean wearing black T-shirts/tops/vests or band tops or the wrist bands, and with skulls decorating everything you wear
Emo does not mean cutting yourself all the time or constantly sulking for yourself
Emo is not a type of music which is personally designed
Emo is not a type/brand of person or a feeling or constantly acting like there's no one there for you and you're all alone
Emo Means Emotional
It can be hating yourself for your own person reasons and everyone chooses to express it in different ways, all these things are just some ways some choose to do so
Well, they were before they became so over used and can just be a fashion statement to some or just a normal music genre to listen to.
But the long fringe can sometimes be the only thing they feel they can hide behind silently and unnoticeable without difficulty
Sometimes it's a case of wear

Sometimes I feel I'm in a race.
A race that's never gonna end
With cheeriness I must pretend.
The goal of which is "happiness"
And the undeniable feeling to impress.
We all struggle on and carry our load
And sometimes it's too much to hold.
I for one have a particular care:
To do something I would not dare.
But I have to do it, no, I must!
I have to do it to earn their trust.
It's weird though it's so hard to do
And I'm all alone without a clue.
He said: "Tell me when you love again"
Yet he doesn't know what I must defend.
Poor me! I shall never find this happiness.
I was never and never will impress!
For I am lost without a doubt

He'll never know for he does not see.
The pain that's brought by finding me.

Sleep is the only form of escapism,
When I awake its back to reality.
Sitting at the side of bed gazing in to a mirror.
A hairy short being stares back at me,
His hands on a keyboard typing some sort of nonsense.
Movement can be seen in the background,
A foot emerges from underneath the covers.
Her angelic frame graces my bed.
She arises randomly to kiss me and returns to her slumber.
My mind is a beehive of thoughts,
Failing is becoming an customary feeling.
Yet her kiss seems to distract me,
For a while
But I've been here before.
This time is different.
It has to be,
A broken heart is like lightning.
It never strikes twice.
The time reads 11:11,
There is work I should be completing.
But my mind is astronomically vacant,
The keys are in the ignition
But no one is driving.

Then I fought God,
I screamed my prayer
"No No No" until they broke the silence.

So No, God, I said No.

every memory of you haunts and taunts and shadows my everyday, and
silence is telling me more than i ever wanted it to.
it remembers too much.
clinging to the past i feel inept.
my Joy is overcome by Pain.
while distance is meant to exhaust this ache to see you,
i'm still drawn to your charm, a charm
you are unaware you have,
one charm i selfishly hope nobody finds.
we may have been young and wore naivety with a smile,
yet we shared more than what anyone expected of us.
but now i hesitate in deciding who to turn to.
lost, i doubt every one's allegiance, questioning their selfless concern.
the divine timbre of your voice weakens in my memory.
the glimmer in your eyes fades from its pictures, yet still
time refuses to heal -
it must have its own agenda.
and without any hope or one of my own,
i struggle on, missing you.
