Close.Maybe I could slip back into your heart,
the way I slipped in between your thighs.
Maybe I could hold you again,
but it will be to my surprise.
I am always here,
trying to show you my heart,
but then I hide it well,
out of fear you would tear it apart.
I try to show you how things could be,
through sacrifice and giving,
but if you were not in my life,
then it would hardly be worth living.
If you knew I wrote this now,
you would never want to see me again,
I cannot help the way that I feel,
but I know that I am just a friend.

simon says run,

Lets follow the leader,
straight into hell,
hop-scotch across the field of flames,
and marco polo in the river Styx.
Let's play hide and seek,
in a toxic waste dump,
and let's play tag with porcupines.
Jump rope on a crumbling bridge.
Simon says die.
Forever if you wantEverything is dark,Forever if you want5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
everything is shadowed,
a hand that grabs the sun,
and chokes its last ray of light.
A frown of a moon,
and crying twinkle of a star,
but I don't want to stop dancing with you,
Even as the butterflies flutter about so blindly,
I still find a sense of joy,
just from being hand in hand,
body to body,
twirling about so graceful,
like eagles entwined,
falling from the sky,
So we can dance forever,
or longer if you want,
even in the dark,
under a lost and broken sun.

The wheels in motion,

I am nothing special,

and other people.

Knife in back, blood still fresh,

It WOULD kill you to tell the truth,

You're fairy tales are wearing thin,
Snow White's a whore,

Pieces falling everywhere,

I've seen the world through the reflection of your eyes,

I won't run,
unless you run too,

I dance with you.
The night is ours,
but it must be shared,
I don't care,
just as long as I'm with you.
Malicious whisperLook at the birds,Malicious whisper5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
they're so free,
but that's never the life that was meant for me.
I'm stuck in this cage,
like a canary singing,
but I've gone mute,
my voice isn't ringing.
sitting in the sea,
ever so violently,
the water spins,
like my emotions,
I try to speak them,
but my voice is broken.
A whisper caught in the wind,
an angry butterfly,
in the air it spins,
falling through the sky,
crashing into a blank page,
its wings become the ink.
Is the ocean blue with sadness?
Or black with madness?
Can I drown in the emotion?
It seems to take my breath,
with hands so desperate,
I sink to death.

I'd walk a thousand miles for you, but not one inch more.
I'm too tired to do this anymore.
Why do I wait,
what separates you from any other beautiful girl out there?
What makes it so worth while?
Maybe I'm just in denial,
maybe it's just your smile,
or your figure,
or the way you make me laugh.
Maybe I'm just a fool,
a lovestruck fool,
being commanded by a fate so cruel.
Sometimes I just don't see the point,
maybe my heart sees something I don't.
Is there a connection on a different level here?
Or are those just false voices in my ears.
I wish a little bird would come along and land on my shoulder,
and whisper words of advice to me.
Should I go?
Should I stay?
I just don't know,
I cannot say.
Maybe it will become more clear in time,
I wish the decision was easy as this rhyme.

Get over it.

Praying won't help.How could you just sit there,Praying won't help.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
at the side of the bed,
with thoughts of the broken in your head,
with good will in your heart,
and no motive to do one god damn thing but pray?
You want them to get better,
but you sit still,
they die slowly,
so where's your good will?
It's in the air that you just whispered into,
maybe they'll hear it,
but that can't fix a collapsed home,
that can't mend a broken bone,
that can't remove sickness from the frail and old.
So what's the point?
You could donate a dollar to the kids without a house to call their own,
but you just express pity in the comfort of your home.

Every day it becomes more apparent,
the blackness in peoples hearts.
The backstabbing, the hate,
I'm not quite sure where to start.
The people that are there for you,
ready to catch you if you fall.
Then one day they're gone,
they just don't care at all.
Reminds me of you,
how you help me through,
then just toss me away to rot.
Look at me,
look into my eyes.
Maybe something will click,
or maybe not,
I've had enough of it.
Fall far away,
down in the alley crowded with shadows.
I'll watch you drift into oblivion,
a black hole or something similar.
Dumpsters flooded with crimson,
dead emotions floating along in them.
Tip the dumpsters and flood the alley,
bury you in an unknown valley.

read the things their souls cough up, sticky
with sickening saliva. someone should,
they cried as they slogged on lined notebook paper,
wishing to wax words as lyrically as liars lie, though time

for the toils of making rushing unruliness rhyme;
they were too full of frivolous frills. no one would care
for their pretty poetic poppy presents, growing
in flanders fields or in contrary mary's constantly-
moving garden. and well, there was no knowing
whether it's a pack of lies or cigarettes, that imagery
was far too confusing. true, there was all that finesse,
they back up their case, shakespeare did it!, though
they did overlook, that theirs often turned up a mess.

No matter how much harm you've done to me
Yes I know you made mistakes
But we've all been there
And I forgive you for what you did to me
Although I shouldn't
But I can never keep from loving you
You make me happy
And even butterflies come to my stomach
I love the feeling when you're around
But I wonder if you feel as I do
Even though you soiled me
I can't help but wonder why I still love you
My heart is still in pieces
But maybe you'll one day try to mend them
You'll always be the one that hurt me
Whether it was intentional or not
But never forget that I still love you
Even if you don't think I do
I'll always be there for you
Although I may not always be helpful
I still love you
No matter what others say
They don't know what I think
Or how I really feel
So don't bother listening to what they have to say
For most of it are lies
And when you see them talk bad about me
Don't leave it alone
Go to them and stand up for me
I know you love me too

Continuous blurs of motion,

Falling backward in the thoughts of others,

Like a comatose victim waking from 1991,
only to discover,
that he's been left behind in time.
Pull me into the future,
so I may abandon the abandoners.
And leave them helpless as I was.

charred before my eyes,
this is a minor disappointment,
among all the little lies.
I saw a lush, green forest,
now I see a desolate waste.
I see...fragments of life still clinging onto nothing of worth,
this place is just a hollow shell,
of a place I used to know so well,
but now the smoke rises and blocks out every thought.
The dying breed fighting for existence,
against a self made apocalypse,
this is what you've created,
this is what you've made,
this is how you sacrifice,
everything we've ever gave.
The sun glows red on the horizon of smoke,
bodies laying in the ash,
collapsed from lack of breath.
The moon surveys its nightly kindgom,
and frowns upon the barren land,
the only thing that hasn't changed,
is the deserts miles of sand,
and the oceans which seem to escape all the pain,
but not on the ground,
where the clouds will only drop the acid rain.
you can't escape,
the death outside...

All I've tried it never seemed to work
Now I know what I've become
I must turn back after all I've done
They all think that they know me

My past has destroyed me
