Who am I?My life has become a haze
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?
Don't Kill YourselfI only wish to give you hopeDon't Kill Yourself3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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
The MirrorMy heart burst into a million shards of glassThe Mirror3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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?

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

Red and black and white
Splattered across your lips
Your eyes are painted in green
The witch eyes of a queen
Empty black pupils
Your hand is painted with soft cream
Nails the color of your soul
Your body is painted with black lace
Curling over curves
In a lonely dying embrace
Your soul is painted in ribbons
Of your hopes and dreams
Of all the fallen

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

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
"You can't save me"
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

Their brown fur ruffling in the wind
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.

The tune was never ending
The tone was forever bending
She scarred her face to make it stop
Her world exploded with a pop

I'll laugh and cry
Meanwhile she'll die
The music is in her mind
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 Sun3 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?

Sharpened blade, of whom, weeping use
Stings the call of the unrepenter's eye
Distorted metal threatened, evokes a sigh
Wincing, contorting expressions perform
Before comfort, respite, and relief reform
A thirsty weapon crimson gore pursues
Satisfying such pain to gain thus reuse
Delved into flesh with unrelenting force
Cries and sighs yet no remorse
Wishing emptiness a feeling filled
Eternal unrest thus ne'er willed
Across again, and through swollen veins
Pure misery pierce, weeping sanguine rains
Without even a tear, nor feeling of fright
The resentful soul seeks the realms of night.

You'll never be good enough for anyone.

Better looking than you.
You don't deserve to be happy.

And you will be
All. too. easily.
They've seeped into the very pores
Of my brain...
And they're controlling my life.
PainPain3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
An unpleasant feeling you may think
The feeling cannot be described in only ink
It can come and go in just a blink
It would be the bitter taste if life would be a drink
It's what gets us down
It's what leaves us with a frown
Sometimes makes us want to leave town
And sometimes makes us want ourselves to drown
It sure isn't much fun
We always want it to be over and done
We can't make it undone
Pain, is a measurement of will power
Recovering from pain may take more than an hour
But in the end you will blossom like a flower

One that never ends
Because we are forever
Our love never descends
The introduction began with a song
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

My father once told me that life is supposed to be a struggle
And that everyone has their own specific type of hustle.
Whether it be working in an office or stacking products on a shelf.
Naturally we all share the same aim of accumulating wealth.
He also told me that nothing is promised in this life time.
When you least expect it the man upstairs will throw you a life line.
Something or someone that will give you a reason to continue.
Awaken the hidden belief and talent that law dormant within you.
He then told me that happiness and success are short lived.
In time your name will both appear and disappear from life's shortlist.
At some point you will feel like the whole world is against you.
No matter what you do some people will just always resent you.
Accept their venomously kind words but never take them to heart.
The show must go on and no one else but you can play your part.

as missing, as unfinished, as incomplete.
She used to think she was complete, accomplished;
her flaws hidden, her heart healed and soul varnished.
Her Creator had made her independent -
she did not need her "other half" to be whole.
When he left, a cold hand wrapped around her heart;
she ached, trapped under the weight of missing him.
She craved his presence, his arms around her waist,
his hands in her hair, his eyes locked on to hers.
She realized she'd simply been fooling herself -
He was her "other half", a 'yin' to her 'yang'.
She had never thought of herself as broken,
until feeling broken was all she had left.
JourneyThe journey is so much longerJourney3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
when you don't use your heart as a map, I say, while
traveling down your heavenly-rich brown hair.
Are you listening? or maybe you already knew that,
not surprising, but either way I'm filled up
with the most beautiful bliss, and you're to blame;
you and your smile that you're barely ever without;
hard to believe there is so much power in a simple facial expression,
but it transforms us inside, like the beauty in an autumn leaf.
Take me to where that smile comes from;
take me to where happiness walks the blue skies,
and kisses the light.
Be the heart and the map of my journey――
you're already the beauty of it――and I'm bound to
along the way see a lot of sunsets and cherry blossom trees,
that's just like you isn't it?

one that fastens and locks. Threw it in the fire, watched it sizzle
and burn. Started to take my value, burned it taking turns.
He trapped me in leather, smothered me till I died. Threw my body
in the trash, never even cried. Left me there to rot, left me
for the rats. Skin pallid, limbs limp, eyes as black as bats.
He left then, and somehow I returned. Crawled through the wreckage,
void of all concern. Eyes were black and lips were cracked. I
wandered like a lifeless doll, feeling I'd been smacked.
He never returned, never said sorry. Left me in the dark at the
bottom of a quarry. Now I'm walking with a limp, soundless and
mute. I hope you know it wasn't fun, it wasn't even cute.
