BetrayalWhy do you make me feel this way?Betrayal6 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Filling my mind with thoughts that are grey.
Gloomy, depressing, worthless too,
Thoughts scattered like animals in a zoo.
Do you feel enjoyment to say these words?
Piercing my brain like the sound of one thousand birds.
I've been there for you, why can't you see?
That what you say really hurts me.
I feel betrayed, unloved, even hurt it seems,
I guess that good things only come in my dreams.
Yet I still put up with this torment you play,
I hear bad remarks or comments every single given day.
This friendship you claim we share,
Friendship is a word I can't even bare.
Yet you act like you

i wouldn't shed a tear
you stripped me of all emotion
so i just stare and sneer
my eyes are bleak and dull now
the ones you always called so bright
i just stare off into space now
and cringe away from the life
I've been stripped all emotion
of all my feelings and desires
so i sit back and watch the flames
of your burning funeral pier

sometimes i lie in bed
look up at the stars
and wonder where my ceiling went
im like a bird in a cage
or a flower in the shade
im trapped in this castel in the sky
one way sigh on a two way street
life, a contradiction in it of itself
so tell me how this will all work out
a wise man once said "yo can be anything
well i wanna be the person to punch that guy i the face

Your deepest sorrow
The scars you have
The fear for tomorrow
Everybody has them
The memories so sweet
Turned dark and dull
No longer complete
A person missing
Still in your heart
But no where around
Maybe he left
Maybe she died
You wish they lied
Cry it out
Let it go
Write it down
Follow your flow
Feel the weight get lighter
It wont disappear

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 li
The ShowThe showThe Show1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Perpetually putting on a show,
Even when cameras are not declared.
Dominating the stage with confidence.
Outshining others delivering-
A polished performance.
Invariably searching for reassurance.
Elongating ever lasting soliloquies.
Permanently in the background
Like a vampire avoiding the lime light.
A shadows confidant,
Nikon's sworn mortal enemy.
Presence is always present
But never acknowledged.
Outcast within a cast.
The omnipotent director.
Intentional but inadvertently -
Altering their plots.
Presence is felt but never seen,
Enacting what has already been.
His credentials are constan
Life Without SamsonLife without SamsonLife Without Samson1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
As I lie in front of the granite casing
Canonized by the sight of the one I love
Longing for his tender touch, to be in his reach again
I often smell the distinctive scent of his uniform
Surround myself with his garments
But only when he's not around
When he's around I must appear to be strong and stable
The constant questions of innocence and ignorance are impossible to answer
But he doesn't understand and I hope he never will
Life must continue and progress
I must now be his granite casing
To shield him from the bitterness and harshness of reality
But who will protect and support me?
Who is there

She has lost count of the days.
On the bed the old lady laid
After that incident that happened that day.
The stench finally filled her nose,
From the bed she then rose.
Lil Emily decided it's time for her to go;
To leave her used-to-be home.
Lil Emily went up to brush her teeth
After eating a few slices if beef.
Poor Lil Emily cried for feeling so lonely;
Oh poor Lil Emily.
She cried while eating;
She cried while bathing;
She cried while drinking;
She cried before sleeping.
Lil Emily went out of the house,
Feeling like a quiet lil mouse.
She's determine not to look behind;

You can't keep your eyes closed,
As we drown our pasts together.
There is this fear I have of the truth,
Rushing into my brain and replacing,
The oxygen with iridescent faith.
When we surface I split my fingers apart.
You find a place for yours to fit and we,
Float together for awhile. Searching,
The heavens for anything more perfect.
These hot summer days are dying fast.
To escape our fate you drag me under,
Again, and whisper words and bubbles,
In my ear. I can't know where we will be,
When our skin is as dry as the leaves underfoot,
But I know we are safe for now in the,

Get used to that brush in your hand,
sticking you with splinters and
jabbing you with inspiration.
Splash yourself with thoughts
from a rusty ink well.
When your ideas have crumbled from drought,
soak your mind in paint you made from
sweat, pigment, love and fear.
Never regret the hours spent feeding
the fire's of creation with the
burning coals of art.
When it's done, and they laugh, praise yourself,
For we are the children of Muses.
Keep every scrap of wonder within arm's reach,
And review each mistake with a surgeon's eye.
Learn. I implore you. Learn. I praise
What greatness can come from poorly drawn wol

A swig of orange juice from the carton.
Toast so burnt you abandoned it and
Chose to butter me up instead.
I never figured out if the strawberries,
Were sweeter than your kiss.
Our days were sunny side up.
You rubbed my shoulders while,
We watched our world blossom.
I tried to imagine I wasn't afraid of:
Your searching, hazel eyes,
Your sneaky, protective friends,
And those lurking, autumn leaves.
We lived that summer.
We were so alive, but did not,
Make it through the thaw of spring.

We don't see the sun.
We just sit alone now.
We are never fun.
We have jobs and bills now.
We miss our favorite shows.
We're in bed so early now.
We have hit new lows.
We are not together now.
We could not find peace.
I packed and drove far away,
To help your pain cease.
You don't call me anymore.
You won't pick up your cell.
You hung yourself last Tuesday.
You forgot to tell.

And all his dusty records.
Could have played them,
If I wanted,
But I lost the music long ago.
Kept my lungs of smoke.
Found his bag of pipes today.
And in one hand they stay.
In one hand they stay.
Leather wallets passing time.
Circa 1957, with no I.D.
This is me. This is me.
Sitting in a plastic box.
No fresh air to breathe.
Tan and worn and almost torn.
This is me. This is me.
Found my granddads stuff today.
Scattered in the attic.
Waiting where he knew I'd find it.
Left for the man I'd be.
That ain't me. Never me.
Granddad couldn't stand.
Never took me fishing.

Hope whispered words of wisdoms in my ear.
She said to keep my head towards the stars,
To break my chains and walk through these bars.
In hers, she took my hand,
Picked me up and taught me how to stand
For myself, and all that is me.
For this, I praise her on bended knee.
We walked everywhere and nowhere,
So that she could show where
Love lingers and faith dwells,
Where mercy marches and silence swells.

Into a swirling romance
Of stars and moons
That God attunes.
Seated into rows,
Woodwinds, strings and bows.
Stars and planets are ready,
As God's baton is silently steady.
He moves it with a certain strength,
As clear ribbons are released of length.
Music of all souls in sound,
The secret of living has been found.

They make my heart heavy.
I know that I trust you,
I'm just not confident about everything you say.
When you tell me that I'm the sexiest thing you've ever had in your hands,
I wonder about who you've had in your hands before to be able to consider this sexy,
And I begin to cry.
All of the problems and emotional instability that come with me,
How can it be sexy?
I cling to you,
Listening to the strong sound of your heart beating,
Feeling your hands on my skin and your breath in my hair,
and I can feel my reeling mind slowing down.

Where The Light LiesOn a day with a yellow sun,Where The Light Lies2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Like honey, well and done
We'll gather where the light lies
Underneath the saddest of blue skies.
We'll sit beneath the willow,
Staring up at clouds, soft and billowed.
To catch this moment, we'll close our eyes
Pretending there's no such thing as goodbyes.
We see and we breathe, hand in hand.
No need to talk, for eachother, we already understand.
We sit so long, your eyes become mine.
And darling, we've even stopped time.
But I know that we must part.
And along with you, you'll take my heart.
Forever I'll remember that day with skies so blue
And that where the light lies......is in you.

Tragic memories set aside
The past burried and gone
Yet I still feel empty with each new dawn
What else do I have to do to prove
To the world and myself
That I don't want to feel alone anymore
Creeping up on me
Darked corners are my abode
So in my solitice I write this ode
Sufficated inside my mind
Trapped within yet can't give in
I want to be more like you
Always observing from a distance
Yet I'm always saying to myself that I miss this
Crazy thing called a social life
But is normality truely the best-est thing for me?

Watching tv, doing nothing
Mom woke me up early today
She wanted to tell me she would be out shopping for the day
Oh, my favourite show
Then something strange happens
Someone is knocking on the door...
Who could that be...?
No car is parked outside
I open the door with a polite smile
But that smile dissapear fast
and turn into a chocked face
I won't belive my eyes
There you are
Adoreble as usual
but at my house!

My legs will betrade me soon
My cheeks already has
They're red as the flower on the table...

It eats away at my heart
And causes me to hurt those around me.
It sees me happy,
So it hurts the ones I love.
It sees me having fun,
So it makes me act the fool.
It sees me holding the one I love,
So it pushes them away.
It seeps out around this shell I've built.
The walls can't keep it in.
My emotions are like wild things,
Untameable and incomprehensible.
I try to love,
I try to laugh,
I try to feel like I actually give a crap.
But they return,
Killing any hope I had.

where up is up and down is long
where black and white are plain as day
and gray is lost to the winds of change
you see, she sees where it all went south
but still she closes her evil mouth
to open it is the cardinal sin
because from her mouth all lies begin
