Requiem for BreadPlay in feature-length/ Our Creation.
Depict the wavering ceremonial flames.
Yet, the shrinking /candles/ snuffed out
and receded back to film - propaganda.
Prior feast deceiving / inquisitor questing
common citizens as shrapnel-blasted minors.
For the first time /they compel you/
to walk - upon the edged bombshells
that drown out their drones of relentless
misinformation - cavalcading the crying
tombstones. Burials within the white oil -
fields -- damning -- the dressed in tradition.
Tell the tale/ tell of living hell - of the land
which no paladin attempts to purify - rectify.
Name said /locked/ to decay for mere scraps
of prerequisite material - Requiem for Bread.
The Ballad For Those Still MournedSail to seam, my apocalyptic dream.The Ballad For Those Still Mourned3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Move onward to the dilated opium, breathe
in and taste hope in homeland heir.
Be bold - dare to defy finite odes.
Become the soldier, the suit - the armor;
garner of humanity and desolate earth.
Turn tidal-swells of warfare, silently
reprobate the crown, sing of homage, bring
peace with the sound of war burned down.
Sheath the slaying shore,
boast the bounding door.
Articulate the arts of war
and decimate the depths-adore.
Finish the dream, the ode, the chord
of men still mourned.

Things the Sun Will Never DryI liked you better whenThings the Sun Will Never Dry4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
we were both lost
in the same storm
Me lost for words.
You lost for meaning.
We took smalls steps through puddles
That anyone else would jump over.
You loved how it used to rain.
You talked about it like religion.
My mind was always soggy
when I said goodnight to you.
Back then I worried that it would never dry.
Today, I smelled thunder and your
words leaked into my head.
This torrent separated us.
It's easy when you let go.
I've been searching for
the thing I once called fire because
some things never dry in the sun.
I will always be saturated by the storms
we will never watch together.
I, ApostropheLabel me the apostrophe.I, Apostrophe3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Providing union prophecies
and communion plays
to quench your exotic fixations
Coaxing your child-caliber -
through coated girth and doubt.
Naming off syllables of sitcoms
till re-runs act as lungs -
breathing mediocrity as genius
and sewing smiles securely to your lips.
Undoubtedly, the quill tip sips
the prayers you pray for me
because no man's sonnet reeks or bleeds
such as this nomad's need.
Ignorantly, my bliss poises your beauty
and admits that I -
am your sole apostrophe.

DreamsOur shining blue earthDreams4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is filled with countless desires.
Everyone has a dream, and aspiration;
Something they want with all their heart.
Some of us dream of saving lives,
Others, of more simple things,
Like having a family,
Or living life to the fullest.
Some dreams come true early on,
Others making appearance later in life.
Yet far too many dreams are abandoned,
Cast away into a land of broken hearts and childhood fantasies.
I'm just a girl with a dream,
Not unlike any other.
Perhaps I'll reach the stars,
But perhaps I'll fall back down to the harsh reality of our world.
I'll continue to do what I love.
Because I do it for myself,
And that will always be enough for me.

However, as the sky you make me blue,
I'm the shadow born from your light,
I'm the justification of your sight,
Standing, we lean on one another,
Having replaced, your father and my mother,
Under a blanket, together hiding, a warm cover,
Having replaced your sister and my brother,
There are times, because of you I cry,
I simply take a breath and again I try,
Confusion rises, you begin to shake,
Paths are seen, from one I must make,
A journey of one, a weakened patrol,
As your depression fights for control,
I open my arms, I prepare for the embrace,
I than hear silent anger, the lines on your face,
They dare to move, they await the impact,
I must run towards danger to keep you intact,
In this position I have been before,
Your standing behind a stable however transparent door,
In my hands I hold the key,
Her depression vs my maturity,
The key is placed in, the door I open,
A hug for my lover, she rejects more than the words spoken,

Lie to comfort me and say you care.
Damaged nerve inside my brain.

Take these bandages and cease this disease.
Break me into little pieces.
I'll cut you like glass,
and turn away.
Somewhere in your burrowed lies,
I'll pay you back.

Fogs like blood.

Don't know when it will end,
But I know where I'm going....

All These Things I DoSitting on the sidelines is no good pastimeAll These Things I Do4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Listening to sad music is no way to make me smile.
Crying on the cold damp floor will not make me feel better.
And yet all these things I do...
Slitting my wrists doesn't stop the pain.
Never eating doesn't make me pretty.
Throwing up won't make me more beautiful.
And yet all these things I do...
Holding my breathe and waiting won't make him see.
Letting love walk by every day will never raise my self esteem.
Thinking only of when I'll lose him, rather than what we have now, will never help me be happy.
And yet all these things I do....

I fear my touch and my words leave more to be desired.
Not only in the world's eyes has my shade darken
But I fear to you I maybe beyond broken.
I constantly feel like I can never give you enough
And in my mind I sometimes see you seeking it through others.
I've opened my heart, soul, mind and body to you and I'm told it's not my all.
If you expect perfection I'm always going to fall.
I told you in the beginning that I wasn't going to wait for you to be perfect
But sometimes I feel you hesitating and holding your breath for me.
You tell me that you love me and that you're forever only mine
But I still fear for the day you tell me that you're lying.

Dream for what you have always wanted
Dream it out loud and be proud
Dream without limits, no one can stop you
I dare you to speak
Speak all that is on your mind, don't hold it in
Speak wisdom and tell the truth at all times
Speak for those who have been silenced unfairly
I dare you to smile
Smile for those who are in deepest despair
Smile to prove those who hurt others wrong
Smile to bring back peace and happiness in this world
I dare you to love
Love your friends, neighbors, and enemies just as yourself
Love those that have forgotten or given up on love entirely
Love and don't ever stop loving, it's what heals our souls
I dare you to hope
Hope for a better future
Hope for those who have given up
Hope throughout life, even when all hope seems lost
I dare you to be different
Be different and stand out from the crowd for the better
Be different and show what makes you be the true you
Be different and bring the change you want
Advice..::Advice::..Advice4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
All words of wisdom
Cleverly masquerade as stupidity
because they want to be overlooked
Advice has this desire, you see
a desire quite cynical in nature
To prove intelect and experience
hold some kind of virtue
Such vacuous notes rattle within empty words
A disposition of fatal and lifely composition
of simplistic words
to convey consequence without action
Alas, this is the root of human nature
To live vicariously without strain or effort
So my advice is this, dear reader:
Live not for glory or destiny
Because dignity is found in prides absence.
When taken into consideration
a thought will spark your sullen intuition
And life the brighter shall ever be
Because life should not be lived with the

This endless loss
This hope is vein
Your heart is frost
I love you so
Can't let you go
Can't breathe a word
Tears freely flow
Have you forgotten already
the love we shared?
Have you forgotten already
us, the perfect pair?
Do you even hear me
I'm bleeding inside,
bleeding myself out.
What's lost is lost
But I can't give up.
What's gone is gone
But I still love.
You won't remember
come a few years time
that you broke my heart
and that I tried to die
You won't remember
when all is done
those days of life,
when we still danced

sometimesSometimes I talk to myself. It began as an unintentional thing, muttering under my breath “This goes here, that doesn't go there. Yeah, that’s a good idea.” But the more nobody wanted to listen to me, the more I talked to myself. I am often my own friend, the only one who will listen to me speak. I am my own audience. And so the ideas strike me with the force of a landslide and I repeat them to myself because there’s nobody else tell. Nobody else who will listen.sometimes3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Already DeadI wish I would OD.Already Dead4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'd love to drown in the darkness.
To never come back would be a gift.
I wish I would drown.
I'd love to fall into the despairing pit.
To never be able to be fished out.
I wish I would fall off a cliff.
I'd love to see ground hurtling toward me.
To know everything will break without a scream.
I'd love to make the bullet hurtle through my brain.
I'd love to pull the trigger near my skull.
To feel nothing and to leave my blood stains as a reminder.
I would be dead before the pills fully circulated in my blood.
I would be dead before the water filled my lungs.
I would be dead before I hit the ground.
I would be dead before I pulled the trigger.
Because inside, I am already dead.

Beneath The MaskYou wanna know why I stand as tall as I do?Beneath The Mask4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Why I look so proud?
Why I have this stupid mask up?
Why, even with all that, I look away when you look me in the eyes?
Because I don't want you to see the real me.
Because I don't want you to know how much I actually slouch.
I don't want you to see how ashamed I am.
I don't want you to see how broken I am underneath all this painted happiness.
Because you don't need to know all that I'm hiding,
Behind those eyes.
No matter how many times you ask,
I will not show you what's behind this mask.
I will not show you how unsure of myself I am,
How unconfident I am.
I will not show you the tears I've cried.
I will not show you my weak spots,
Because without this armor around me,
You can break me even more.
No matter how many times you ask,
I will not show you the me beneath the mask.

If I drown in a lake nestled in the heart of this fake empire
Dry my sallow skin on the steeples of every church that burns.
If my lungs swell with wine and fine éclairs, crack my chest open
And let our destitute kin taste what will always be out of reach.
I know you're busy pulling weeds and leeches from the back of my throat,
But can I have a glass of water? Half empty.
Always half empty because they are thirsty and will take a gulp before you.
I'm sorry for making the world smell like wet dog and burnt hair at the same time.
This cobble stone stasis is working against us.
So, if I drown in a lake, scoop me out and strip me down and hang a sign from my neck.
An arrow leading to whatever this world has left for the orphans of physics and astrology.
Join this funny parade with your 'coon skin caps and low expectations.
Try a life without vaccines and can openers.
