An English Majors HeadFingernails tear at the flesh,
The flesh tears black and yellow.
Tired of being your Caliban, why
Can't I be Othello? Falsely
Portrayed and poorly played
My hour upon the stage, so stick
your fingers in my script and
Turn the bleeding page.
Without a doubt I too am mad, bad,
And dangerous to know. Maybe because
The goblin market is a place I like
To go. And yes I know, a good man is
Hard to find, but maybe it's because
"Good" is so truly hard to define.
I have been lost in books a while
And stuck in my imagination, this
Poem is a kind of Shellyesque corpse
Amalgamation of dead literary thoughts
Revived with the monkeys paw. I'm
Mentally paddling through an ocean
Of words I've read and Images I saw.
I have walked through fields with
Wordsworth, and been socially concerned
With Blake, Died young with Keats,
And explored many things with Yeats.
You may at this point wonder why my
Rhyme is inconsistent, or you might
Have stopped reading already because
I seem so distant. Feel free to pick
But, That LoveThose eyes...But, That Love5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Are like the reflection of the moon.
So pale yet so beautiful.
I can stare into them for hours,
And not once feel sorrow.
So juicy and plump,
Bigger than normal
But I loved all your kisses.
So gentle and pleasureable.
Felt like a straight jacket
Wrapped around me but only
To protect me and keep me sane.
Made me feel special and loved
I could never forget your strength.
Almost like a giant
Hovering over me everyday.
Most would be scared, But not me.
I loved looking "up" to you.
You were my body guard.
Just like that of a baby's.
So soft but orgasimic.
Every stroke felt like silk.
It took me away,
To a very happy place where I was loved.
But, That Love...
Sure I had it for you,
But...It just wasn't there for me.
I loved and loved and loved you over again.
You never took the chance,
To love me back.
I wish your eyes and lips,
Arms and body and touch,
Were your love, then I
Know you would have really

I cross my heart and hope to die,
If I ever tell you a lie.
Then why am I not dead?
I know I am in my head.
If I told you what I see,
You would never forgive me.
'Truth' is such an important word.
It can cage you up like a bird.
Or let you soar and be free.
It's only now that I see
That you never loved me.
You think I'm full of glee
But I will never let you know
That I am putting on a show.

They are closing in around me.
Slowly but surely
Closing me off from the world.
No one can interpret
My subtle clues.
They can't decipher
My complicated mind.
It'll just spin you
Round and round
Until you lose your footing,
And hit the ground.
I just can't do it.
I can't put you in my shoes.
You don't deserve to suffer.
Even if you did cause my pain.
I can't break down this wall.
I can't get around this roadblock.
I can't climb up this mountain.
I can't say what I feel.
Everywhere I look,
It's there again.
Never leaving my side.
Never letting me forget.
Forcing me to run and hide
In the recesses of my mind.
Now I can't see the light.
Now I can't be heard.
Now I can't get out.
There's no way out.
Fire ChildYou told me not to go out at night,Fire Child2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Because of the mangled corpse dumped at our neighbor's house.
But you know me,
And the crazy lurking behind these eyes.
You know I can't live without a little rebellion.
So build me a bonfire to dance around,
And I'll scream at the sky, crush stars beneath my feet.
Stack the branches high, let me climb to the top
And drop the match from hands soaked in gasoline.
You thought the purple haze was just a notion
In a dream-addled brain, nothing for the sane person to bother with,
And you were right!
So what does that say about us?
We lost the world before we found ourselves. (We just had to lose it all.)
It's not that we're losers ourselves;
We'll gladly tear the guts out of those who would subdue us!
It's that this world isn't ours, never was, isn't good enough.
It's that we're always out for more, ripping chunks from the universe
With teeth sharpened on a lack of remorse.
We'll ring our eyes in ash and scare the complacent from their beds.

Love is that cutey
Who's in your science class.
Love is how you blush
When they look your way.
Love is the tingle
You get when they say "Hi."
Love is how your heart pounds
When you're close to them.
Love is the joy
You feel as a couple.
Love is the rush
You get when you kiss.
Love is the excitement
You have when they say "I do."
Love is the care
You two show for your children.
Love is the fear
You feel when the hospital calls.
Love is the dread
You feel as you make your way there.
Love is the sorrow
You feel when they're gone.
Love is the memories
You have of that cutey.
