The MirrorMy heart burst into a million shards of glass
And you tried to pick them up one by one
Did you not care that you cut yourself?
Drops of blood fell from your fingertips
As I watched you pathetically, laying on the floor
Why did you love me so much?
A single stumble - you fell breaking the shards even worst
But you, my beautiful darling, kept on going
Are you not tired of me?
Try putting me back together
And I come back
But what is life without you?

And I have forgotten my namesake
Who am I in the darkest hours of the day?
There's a little girl who walks down the road
Making mistakes I try to correct
And she looks too much like me
A little boy watches her go
He laughs at her
But in the end, there's nothing left of him
Who are you in the darkest hours of the day?
Discarded.You cry for your sorrows and you bleed for your dreams,Discarded.2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Just always remember, this world is not what it seems.
You can be the best of friends and then disappear,
They'll just discard you, I know it's hard to hear.
But this has happened enough to me,
It's all everyone's been doing recently.
So here I lie, discarded, fearing to stand up,
Because what waits just isn't worth getting up.
Thrown away and lying in a puddle of mud and blood,
All the other times I got up, and wiped off the mud.
But this time, as I lie here, broken and bloody,
I don't want to get up, I want to be a dead body.
I know getting up is inevitable, because I will never give in,
But I really just want to give up and say that "I'm done in."

If I can grant you nothing else
I only wish to save you
Because you're killing yourself inside
Forgive me if I take away your sanity
Take away your will to die
Know that I will always love you
Whether or not you commit to lie
Your feelings are what have been given
Your wishes are a disarray
I will be here for you until the day
The day you stop telling me to go away

with each cautious kiss.

of light and darkness
as they embrace on the horizon

Meanwhile she'll die

Filled with ever changing Colors and Lights
People would Evolve, becoming Miraculous
But then I saw a Change that was far from Greatness
Everything became Nasty and riddled with Disgust
It all grew into something Wrong and Impure
My Hatred for the People I used to Love started to Grow
Just as their Filthiness Grew
And I thought of ways to Light them All on Fire
But like Armored Knights they came
My Friends I had previously Abandoned

2. Love, Shadows, and the Sun He had no idea how great her love was, and the second he realized how great her love was he lost her.2. Love, Shadows, and the Sun2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And he had loved her just as much. What was he to do with love that couldn't do anything? He left it to die in the Shadows, and there the Sun never came.
His love stood frozen and numb. So long had it been in ice that when the Sun shined again the love cracked and started to destroy itself; to break.
Only the Sun's fire could melt the ice, but the Sun was so furious, sad. And so, the Sun stopped shining until the day love continued to live between them again.
Who knows when the day will come?

Empty black pupils

Nails the color of your soul

Curling over curves
In a lonely dying embrace
Your soul is painted in ribbons
Of your hopes and dreams
Of all the fallen

That's all she can say
As she stares into the dark moor
Into the emptiness
And she's dying
But no one can save her
She tells me words that pierce my heart
Words that take turn in stabbing my soul

Murmurs said so sweetly
Do you know who you are in death?
"I love you"
I love you too
But saying so will kill me with you
Rotting ThroneThere were many people who fell that day. I was not one of them. But then the rest started to break, like aged puppets. I was not one of them.Rotting Throne3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
But then I looked around at the residue. Straying souls, empty bodies, black eyes, and the smell of lost hope in the air.
One person pushed their self over the edge, to fall and to break. Like an aged puppet with broken strings. But it was not just a puppet, it was a marionette.
That person was me.
I fell to fix the cruel sadness. And I came back. We all did.
But we had forgotten.
Never forget your scars. They will grow. You will forget to heal them, mend them. And so they grow. Grow. Grow. Grow.
They grew. Grew. Grew. Grew.
And again, many people started to fall. A second time. The rest to break. A second time. But I was not either of them.
They were imbeciles.
I stayed on my throne. Ruled all of nothingness.
Then the impossible happened...
I started to rot. Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot.

As we were sitting on my bed
His bright eyes gleaming
I had swallowed my death
In my nightmares
My skin is splitting
My face is shriveling
And my bones sanguine
My hear is ice
My lungs are fire
My body burns
As my breath freezes
A blood-curling scream
Scratching at my soul
God, help me please!
There goes the Devil's laughter
For my tongue is gone
As is my final breath
I drank the Devil's wine

Our love is our gentle abode, and I just want you to know
That my patience is unknown, but for you, I will hold
I’ll just have to flow, and always remain with hope
Because much time has already passed
And a lot has happened, so sudden and fast
But with each moment, we get closer and forget the past
With each mistake, we start growing, with each, we understand
But now that patience is a big part of my life
I hope that one day, you'll also be mine
It could take a while, it could also be soon
But none of that really matters, because I truly belong to you

I’m so confused
I should be crying,
But instead I’m laughing
At my last breath.
When the world is backwards
I’m so confused
The sky is ground
The north is south
And I find myself swinging
From the cobblestones
And with dirty hands, walking
Gripping with knuckle bones
Why is it, turned all around
I’m so confused
Yes means no
Wrong is right
And I’m enthralled with hurting people
Destroying their souls
And living, but actually dead
And somehow hurt consoles
At this rate I’ll be
Falling down to heaven
Or flying up to hell
To really understand this world of opposition
When I try to call my friend
Turns out she’s the enemy
And when I think I’m singing
I’m actually really cursing
And all around me
They all just do the same
When normality's are no longer normality's
I’m so confused
When Beauty is ugly
And scars are lovely
Gets pretty hard to disgui

They sway side to side
Swinging on a tree
They jump on the bed
As I read them a book
A book about other monkeys falling off and hitting their head
Eating their bananas
Clear joy in their faces
They fill my heart with warmth
Because they're not really monkeys
But they might as well be.
They're my baby brothers, my own monkeys.

Sang throughout so many years
My voice adds to its crescendo
All to the children's ear

Or maybe it's a boy's beginning
Of how they grew to be
Into something horrendous
So stay tuned
Because introductions last forever
Since we always discover new things
