Some enjoy living in the shadows.. under that ever pouring gray sky. Deeper and deeper into the chaos and darkness.. until we get so caught up in hurting, that all that's left of us is cold flesh and empty eyes.
Friend. I've see this look before, so clearly in the mirror. I can't say I didn't enjoy the pain. But oh those moments when gray was my favorite color.. I couldn't help but to add some red for dramatics.
Maybe it's the artist in me, couldn't stop the perfect angle, couldn't stop the madness inside from boiling over. Still plotting against the raging twisted emotions inside.
Say friend, is this the final hour? When I can't stop to see you trying to smile.. when I can't stop to try and smile back? What time is this that disillusions and mist implore and raging winds cast us ashore
Still hurting me.You touch me and I'm still cold.Still hurting me.5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's the nature of things to forget,
Last I remember you're a silhouette.
We're racing against the echoes.
Shaded in hues of red and green,
Deep between the covers and unseen.
I never considered it falling apart.
You can't love something you never knew,
And if you say you did I know it's untrue.
We're nothing but a shadow of regret.
Now I've become stagnate in your mind.
I'm trapped in this cage and can't unwind.
Your words do slither ever closer.
It's a shame I can't just get you out,
You've filled my mind with crawling doubt.
I'm sorry for it all, sorry for everything.
I'm Claustrophobic and the walls are caving in,
The line between life and death is pretty thin.
We.. we were nothing, and we still are.
TemptressBeauty, fair and pale.. Goddess of the nightTemptress5 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
With wings of charcoal and darkness and fright
Sweet lips of crimson, and eclipse soul
Bound in chains, empty and without whole
Wicked temptress, who battens upon chaste
Destruction is beheld, lain to you're waste
Lustrous tears, fallen from formless being
Abject of light and helpless of seeing
Distorted and twisted, folded soft petals
Allying to that of harsh stinging nettles
Poking and prodding, alluring in sight
Inviting, invoking, and all in delight
Sweet Goddess of my darkest delusion
Mirrored in time a flawless illusion
Growing deep and warm and never consoling
Rising the tide, and continually rolling
Craving and quivering at your very mention
The feeling in my chest, the rising of tension
Pierce now my heart, absolved of my torment
Free of your feel, and at last circumvent
Soul to the heavens and body in ground
Freed of your voice, of every perilless sound

Sewn together then torn apart

Staring in the eyes of whispering voices
Tears of the forgotten evaporated in lies
The truth in reason does but cry
Merry are the makers of riches
Spoiled to rotten core and plastic flesh
Call out you invisible peoples
You with the cold faces and hollow eyes
The heart is but a pump for blood
And your brains are salted heavily
Smog rolls in and we crawl at ground level
The towers of the rich reach higher
And we falter on this desolate shore
Knowing that heroes exist no more

In those monstrous eyes
Leaping fate and lost
Never been quite so cross
You try to change the world
And then you're surprised because you can't
I never had the faith you had
My worlds always been so cold and sad
Smile as if you had no clue
And watch as my eyes turn to blue
Walked alone in paradise
And lingered in the undergrowth
Hope is for the hopeful
Tears are for the rest of us
You're only as empty as space
And only as gone as time
I'm horrified by humanity
The thing I fear the most
But I can't stop evolution
No, I can't stop evolution
I never had the faith you had
My worlds always been so cold and sad
Smile as if you had no clue
And watch as my eyes turn to blue
My eyes are your eyes
But we see everything so differently
Funny how our lips move
But our hearts are beating in discord
So sorry you had to leave
So sorry you had to care
The worst part of me has always been you
But we're one in the same
Yes we're one in the same
I never had the faith you had

Sleep will not come, and I cannot unwind
I'm restless and diaphanous in this realm
Caught between space and time, overwhelm
Now clutched by the hands of daylight walking
On this Earth by nights eyes been stalking
Sunrise and sunset, sunrise and sunset
Visions of ghosts and lucid beings beget
I'm far from lively and further from rest
It's sleep I chase, I've now confessed
Cast and burning I'm desperately astray
Suspend my consciousness in dreams fly away
I beseech you Nyx, enchant me with your charm
Into the night I'll go, effortlessly and without harm

Illusions of fate and time pass me by
Waves splash playfully against the shore
Beckoning me; from within they implore
Creatures of the night creep forward
To the East, and moving briskly onward
Jostling me into the cooing waters swell
Bewitched by the night, and now impel
My legs are shaking wildly, cold and numb
Into the ocean; a part of it I'll become
Deeper and deeper, and now I am one
Tragic they say, but can't be undone

Kelly sat on her cot, cleaning her rifle carefully. The last mission hadn't gone all that well and she was trying to keep her mind off of exactly how badly it had gone. The Covenant had killed almost everyone on the planet, only three people having survived. Still, it could have been worse. John had gone off to retrieve the survivors while she had secured their escape. They almost lost all the survivors, and Kelly had almost lost John. It was never safe for a Spartan to take on a hunter on his own, and John had done it to try to save the survivors.
John moved into the barracks, moving to his cot beside hers. They always sat so that they could face each other. It wasn't that they really did it on purpose, just that it was habit. Kelly watched him as he checked over the repaired plate of his armor. She opened a private channel with him so they could speak openly. "Going to tell me what's got you upset?" She'd known it as soon as he'd refused to leave the survivors. Three people weren't w

You have out-grown
Yourself, and these
Childish notions of
Monsters in the closet.
She holds her breath
Until the sun rises,
Because no one taught her
How to sleep
With her eyes closed.
There is this
Delusion about you;
A belief that if
You stay awake,
There will be no darkness.
It is damaging you.
Cold and silent,
With her darkened fantasies,
And remembers a time
When she was not-so-
Into unrecognizable shards.
You have found your only
From all the lifetimes
Too fearful to live.
Too lost in your waking dreams
To see new realities.
It will all
Be over soon.

A slow breeze passes by, caressing matching fair untanned faces, azure eyes with such vivacity as the clear infinite sky above their heads. The curiosity flowing with the white sparse clouds, innocence drifting little by little.
The girl look back at her companion, a boy just her age. So distant, so determinated. So different from her. It's the gold and the blue and the feeling of emptiness all mixed together. He's the completeness and the hollow walking along.
Even if they're together, she knows the boy is never complete, just like her. They seek their hearts, their souls, their truly beings, the meaning of their existances. She can't help but to feel that she'll lose herself when she finds herself. Deep inside she wonders what really will change.
Is that necessary? Will this sorrow go away? So many questions by so many silent whispers within her sanity. Not only hers but his too.
But he's stronger. He's tought and he's frail. He's willing to follow his instinct, even if

Nocturne of ShadowNocturne of Shadow4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Unseen evil roamed around the land of the dead
Raged and vengefully hatred which was better left unsaid,
Corrupted spirits floated among headstones in ancient graveyard
Guarded by an old guard.
Their stories were unreadable,
Inscribed inside eerily creepy crypt was impossible,
One way to get inside was to fire up all torch at once,
Guaranteed unsafe trips, only Eye of Truth could solve everything at once.
Looked out for these energy-draining spells from the magic lens.
When you heard the Nocturne of Shadow had been blaring from nowhere to be seen, ran away;
These sounds of bongo being drummed, you would know it was doomsday.
Your end had come.
The Cardboard MenThe Cardboard Men5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
There is a cardboard world,
in which cardboard men, live their cardboard lives;
In their neat cardboard homes, with their pretty cardboard wives.
They work all day, in their cardboard cells,
chasing cardboard money, to buy cardboard things;
to buy fancy cardboard cars, and expensive cardboard rings.
They frolic in the evenings, in their cardboard clubs,
With their cardboard friends, getting cardboard highs;
Hunting sweaty cardboard salvations, between smooth cardboard thighs.
They lie at night, in their cardboard beds,
With cardboard victims, shedding cardboard tears;
For evil cardboard villains, with their sad cardboard leers.
They shrivel and sag in their cardboard rain,
Under the cardboard guilt, of their cardboard lies;
Of vile cardboard betrayals, of feeble cardboard goodbyes.
They stiffen and bloat in their cardboard sun,
With their cardboard pride, in their cardboard wins;
In their Judas cardboard friends, with their pious cardboard grins.
They all freeze in their cardboard cold

The classroom was noisy and crowded.
Boys and girls in their Gakurans and Sailor-Fukus were talking, gossipping, discussing the latest trends, the hottest girls and boys, the greatest J-Pop bands
Just one wasnt part of a conversation.
Instead, her desk was filled with all kinds of sewing-material Needles and black cloth, stuffing
She was just a young girl, 13 years old, short black hair, brown eyes. Nothing remarkable, most Japanese girls had black hair and brown eyes. She was also slim; but not that slim, that she could have won a modelling-contest
Concentrated, she sat in the middle of this noisy-classroom
Stitch after stitch her work to shape .
//Wheew never would have thought, that sewing is so tiring But I want to do this! I want to finish this! I //
She stopped sewing for a moment and whispered:
Even I must have some talent Please, let it bet his I sooo want to do

Looked like mountain itself was pissed
At someone or something inside it
Seemed like something was hidden in that pit

Rumored be told around village of rock-dwellers
That evil dragon awaited there in temple's cellar
Hungry and would devour anyone as its snack
Its weakness -- mega hammerhead
Inside house of inferno, battled with flame-dancers and fire-breathed lizards
Too hot to breathe, had to use Goron's tunic, its heat-resistant
When you heard Bolero of Fire playing, hurried up, not enough time left
To save Gorons, and to smash the serpent's head...

Touko practically floated back to the tent, riding a wave of new found euphoria. The forest passed in a green blur, her mind too full of fanciful thoughts to focus on what was happening around her. As N towed her along back to the clearing, she played their kiss over and over in her head.
It wasn't the first time she had ever kissed anyone, but in a way she felt it was. This kiss, though innocent and sweet, was filled with passion in a way that none that had come before it had ever been. She sighed dreamily as she focused on how tightly he had his fingers currently twined in hers. She felt like a lovesick school girl and, though she despised feeling so childish, she luxuriated in the new feelings of desire that now pulsated through her body and mind.
They arrived back in their campsite just before the sun had completely set. Touko dropped her bag on the ground and sat on a log next to the entrance of the tent. She shivered violently as the wind whipped

You're the one that has found your way here.
And you, the one that's forgotten me as well,
Would be wise to stay far away, my dear.
It doesn't have to torture the both of us,
Knowing the sadness that's been all but lost.
I think that this burden on me is enough,
But you can't seem to stop, no matter the cost.
You keep coming back when I've told you to go,
Bringing back every single memory,
And you still don't recognize what it all means,
Or what you keep doing to hurt me.
If things could have ever been different,
It wouldn't have turned out the way it did,
And you wouldn't have to live in a lie
Like I have since I left behind that little kid.
There's a reason why I've kept my distance,
Why I've been so harsh over the years.
I've only been protecting a fragile past
From the danger of awakening the fears.
You, who would never forgive me for this,
Don't even realize the things that I know.
As for me, I suppose I'm the liar, the thief,

The Savage Land
The rising sun signaled the beginning of morning as the warm rays of light washed over everything that existed and resided within the Savage Land. All creatures, both great and small, awakened from their night of peaceful rest, once again eager to begin their day anew. It was also then that Skaar awakened from his slumber, his eyes quickly snapping open as he inhaled the fresh scent of morning, stretching briefly as he rose to his feet. He began scanning his surroundings until his eyes fell upon Shego's form, who was still resting in a peaceful sleep, barely making a sound as she inhaled and exhaled oxygen.
Resting on her side, Shego held the gigantic leaf that she used for a blanket tightly against her body, her appearance like that of an angel that fell from heaven. Skaar loomed over her, an annoyed growl escaping his throat as he kneeled down and briefly shook her shoulder with his right hand, attempting to awaken Shego
