Girl in the wellA little girl fell into the wellGirl in the well2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Thought help would be there quick
But even as she would shout and yell
She stayed till worn n' sick.
Jump as she may the well was too tall
To get out she did pledge
But the walls were slick and her too small
'N not a single edge!
So it is here her bones will remain
So heed this story true
Do not let her fall be just in vain
Lest this story feature you!
Black BirdBlack bird, black bird on my shoulder,Black Bird2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
why must you perch so silently?
Please squawk, please squeal, please make a sound,
your deafening quiet is frightening me.
Your eyes dig deep into my flesh,
more so than your claws ever could.
Black bird, black bird, please don't hurt me.
I swear to you that I'll be good.
Your feathers, ragged yet glossy,
like a face plastered with tears.
Your beak, so sharp and snarling,
like a child's darkest fears.
Black bird, black bird prepare to fly,
as your next victim nears.
You've silently stalked my every thought
for far too many years.

Please tell me why am I depressed
If you say that you know me so well
Please tell me why am I going through this hell
You say you only want my best
Yet all you do is make me stressed
You call me names and curses all the time
Act as if my birth was my own crime
I starved myself only to impress you
I cut myself and you had no clue
I almost overdosed to get away
And woke up to you're screaming the next day
You say that It's my fault my life's a mess
But I though you said you know me best
In tribute to Chun LiIn any country she will fightIn tribute to Chun Li1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
For reasons always right
In her traditional dress of blue
She will stand by what is true
Any evil that arises can easily be fixed
By one graceful barrage of kicks
Adorable and charming but never squeamish
She will not start a fight but be its finish
This is a force no criminal can beat
Only Chun Li can be so strong and sweet
SpringYou step outside,Spring2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The chilled gust of wind greets you
By nipping the warmth away from
Your face and leaving it burnt red.
Small pebbles of ice fall from high,
Crashing into trees and their out stretched arms
Before tumbling into you, sending small
Burst of mild pain reacting throughout your nerves.
Your shirt is stained by the rain drops,
And a familiar smell lingering in the air.
The drops of rain soak into your skin and
Touch you heart and tickle your soul
Spring is welcomed right back into your world.

Sliding them down the satin like strands,
Prying apart the knots and the tangles,
Delicately toying with the loose ends.
I glide my hands down your cheeks,
Towards the smile refusing to shine,
Catching the flare of your flowery eyes,
In the spark my touch creates.
Our fingers nimbly intertwine,
As they dance a tango by our sides,
To the rhythm playing in our hearts,
On a journey with no end in sight.
You hide inside my cotton armour,
Cocooned in layers of cloth and skin,
And close your eyes to the settled sound,
Of the drum that beats to your every whim.

About A GirlOnce a pretty girlAbout A Girl1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
That lived in New York City
Don't mess with this bitch
She won't show any pity
She walks down these streets
Only at the age of seventeen
With no friends or family
Turned out to be mean
In her ragged clothes
With no place to go
To be in her position
People just don't know
People avoid her gaze
They don't know her
Nobody will help
Maybe it won't get better
Stuck in the rain
Thunder so loud and clear
The lighting struck
It was near
What will she do
Where will she go
She doesn't even know

Your the woman of my life
One and only gal worth being a wife
But for you it's a disappointment to be with me
But truthfully it's pity to you
You are deceived by my looks reputation
So be gone - you then showed me your rear
It takes time till you realise
I'm going crazy,
Your the woman of my life
The one I wanna make my only
It's not fair I have to beg inside of my mind
My mind is in love and I won't change nor arrange anything
Take me as I'm already am
I'm nutty, bad, sweet and real stubborn
Just how was born
There is no other fantasy girl but your face
Why should I lie?
I see your eyes, lips, tights
What you are is what crawl crave for
My soul is not for sale
My tears speak silent phrase of romance
Each morn your face I wanna glance
Don't let this chapter end as a pity my dear lady, be crazy for once...

we can't imagine even a tiny part
of what you've been through
but we knew that hatred was
in the heart of those who
hurted you, so pure
Now you are an angel
you took your own life
they tore you apart
we won't let your fight
be in vain
What are we doing?
closing our eyes
to the early angels
they weren't supposed
to ascend now

I didn't know I wore them.
Now it all makes sense.
I've seen behind the curtain
and now I know.
I have tons,
more added everyday.
I now see them in the mirror
where my face should be
I see masks;
one on top of the other.
But which is me?
do I have a face,
or just masks?
What do I look like
Without a cover?
That's what I see
When all the masks are ripped off
revealing the bare being beneath.
It's not what I want
but it's all I truely know.
I've only been watching life
through emotional masks.
But what does it truely feel like to be
Happy, Content, Carefree.
Maybe one day
I'll know the deep-rooted feeling of
Love or Joy
But until then,
This is me,

You have become a true man.

No one will notice what you used to be.
Slip under their noses and pretend,
You're not who you used to be.
Hear the words until you believe them,
Listen to what you tell yourself until you turn the lies into a truth.
Now you're free of everything,
You can be what you wanted to be.
No longer a craving for innocents blood.
No longer a desire for the death of another.
Free of this curse you are,
Fall in love.
Do what you wish.
Nothing felt better than a soft,
Know not of what you don't see,
Lose track of the way you breathe.
Cross out your heart and hope to die,
Throw the blackened thing aside.
Cure the pain and hide.
You never have to share the secrets inside,
It rushes back,
You can't stop it.
You can't hide.
It wasn't enough.
You can't be human Little monster.
You aren't good.
You never were.
You can't keep running.
This is who you are.
You can't be human.

Golden letters rim the entrance to the bar
Bronze flickers within, glints on the scars
Across the windows, carved by the rain
And the curved rows of saxophones inside
Humming voices deep as velvet clouds
Drenched in honey and angel tears
Mourning what we cannot understand
Unfurl wings of gossamer and flit like amber
Shadows of whiskey, shadows of brandy
Shadows of a woman on a hardboiled stool
A christmas candy in her hair, furs across
Slender shoulders, evening dress a glimmer
Of violet pinned with pearls, emeralds
Frozen absinthe crying from her ears
She parts lips so blue that all colors
Collide against it blindly and mirror
That open-mouthed terror; shark skin
In tropical water in the dead of night
Blue. Until the veins beneath sunset wilt
From red to blue in ghoulish delight
And candle flames melt into grey bubbles
Floating from that Blue that is drifting
From her lips and binding each coiling tune
Drifting from the saxophones, until they
The WitchWhat is the meaning, why did i walk away, why did she push me this way.The Witch7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
The questions I've been asking my whole entire life,
But now I'm running down the streets, no one to shelter me,
So i let out my screams, why is this my destiny,
I let my breathing catch and i fall and get scratched,
Yet no matter how it happened i fell on a rose.
A garden Ive tread into so beautiful and bright,
But the woman it lead to instilled me with fright,
That wretched witch was bigger then the night,
I always thought that was impossible, i didn't think right,
This woman was ugly and pugly and all around sickly,
But this witch i gave her a chance, I took up a breath,
I took up my courage, I stood up myself, and when i rose,
I found a new rose, not a flower with a scent so sweet,
Not a perfume that i could keep, but a woman, a witch,
An untimely bitch, but she was the one who's true,
She didn't care about herself she cared about you,
She didn't care if you smashed her rose, she asked if you are okay,

It's hard to chug gallons of milk.
It's hard to burn yourself with salt and ice—
or is it?
It's easy to wear silver on your skin
(both jewelry and the kitchen knife);
It's easy to punch the walls constantly—
don't forget again.
I wasn't touched since you were always raped,
I wasn't crying since you just were;
You've been hurt since your stolen childhood—

They stole me,
You saw it,
You saw me wishing for a sharpened scythe.
You did too,
You cried too,
But to you, I was never worth a hug.
he touched me; he raped you.
your mother beat me; they always beat you.
i cried in my sleep; you cried in my face.
I wanted to help you.
you punched me.
you smothered me.
you beat me with anything in your room.
I thought we were friends.
you hated me.
you told me that.

As I sit in my corner and think about your lies
I have nothing else to do but break down and cry
You knew it would end
You knew it would die
You knew one day we’d have to say goodbye
You told me you loved me
You told me you cared
But the rage inside had slowly flared
The moments we shared replay in my head
Along with all the sweet lies you said
You thought it was a game
You thought you’d win
But in the end you felt nothing within
Deep down inside there was a big empty space
That I now realize you couldn’t replace
Something about you helped me see
That without love I’m finally free
Free from pain
Free from lies
Free from having tear filled eyes
Without your love I finally see
All the horrid things you’ve come to be
