No Ball in the Hall
"Jack, I said no ball in the hall."
Reminded Jinny with her call
-"But what is it about my ball
that I can’t play with it in the hall?"
Jinny glared at the little clown
"It will turn the hall upside down."
-“Turn upside down? That's a neat trick!
How do you do that? With a kick?"
-"You kick that ball and I'll pull your ear
You can play outside, but never here."
Jinny walked away and left Jack aware
about the ball in the hall, it was no dare.
Jack quickly ran the hall to play outside
but running made his shoelaces untie
He tripped and the ball flew off his hands
It knocked four vases and two table stands
And right after the loud "crash" and "crack"
Jinny came back furious shouting at Jack
'What did I say? Didn't you listen at all?!'
- 'Yes, I did, you said no ball in the hall!'
- 'Then why did you disobeyed me if you knew?'
- ' I didn't! It was the ball, it didn't listen to you.'
The angry Jinny walked over to Jack
whose big, silly head got a smack.

Gleaming eyes fixed upon their reflections.
I am beautiful! they say to themselves,
And all of you must accept that as true!
To say otherwise would be a social suicide.
Their friends will defend them to the bitterest end.
In a circle of illusions cast by the group,
You are forced to accept this person as 'pretty'.
To me you are not beautiful, you are simply lazy.
You have done nothing for yourself,
And now you wish me to accept you?
But I must tell you the truth.
And though that truth may wound you,
I believe it is for the best:
Because girl, dayum! You just look so bad that my eyes are cryin' YOU a river.

Apparently all it takes
Ta get ye works ta slake
Is a simple scheme o' rhyme
Which takes a minute o' time
Perhaps I'll do the same
It's fair ta play this game
No meanin' in tha words
They just flop around like birds
"Oh this stuff it speaks to me!"
Really is that true?
I'm afraid ye might be daft me thinks
Ye certainly be loose a screw
For if works do not have meanin'
Then they're simply done and dull
I think I'd rather spend me time
Playin' dice in a golden skull
I suppose that what tha people want
Is a simple kind o' style
One that looks as good as ale
But tastes like bricks and bile

five years you were working

For the final approve
he CRACKS you

he HACKS you
and you were just shielding
your little pearl
and while you are sighing
the diver is smiling
and while you are dying
the princess is crying
'cause you had to die

for hopes to become the cloudscape
and for dancing to become the norm.
Tonight's moon is a promise made

Tonight's dusk is a champagne toast
for us to drown our sorrows in
and the reminder that tomorrow
our lives go supernovicly astray.
What is LoveI won’t pretend to know what love truly isWhat is Love1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Love is an irrational feeling
That gives people the excuse to put themselves in painful situations
To be upset over and over again
And so that at the end of the day they can still say they 'love' someone
Love is power
You give someone complete control over you
Give them the key to a part no one else knows
And they seem to throw it away
Love is a delusion
It’s not all who do that
There are the faithful few
But for others
The heartbreak and loss and torment
Comes time and time again.
And every time they hope
Love is fantasy
That the next will have a different ending
The fairy tale story of prince and princess
Will finally be theirs.
Love is poison
It rips at you and hurts you
And for what?
The kisses and hugs
Happy trivial feeling of having had SOMETHING
Love is a pain
It keeps everyone blind
Willing to face the fire again

The plan had been so simple. Thirty six hours in solitary confinement, Meredith was struggling. Last week this had all seemed so simple. So obvious. It seemed like she had devised the perfect escape plan. Things weren't working out as intended.
Firstly, and above all else - even breathing or thinking - there was the thirst. Her throat roared with it and she could feel its acidic anger snarl its way up and down her throat with each breath. She'd imagined discomfort, but not pain. She was starting to reconsider.
Her tongue was sore. The slab of meat in her mouth felt like unswallowed food as it got drier, and the taste when she could summon enough saliva to swallow was rancid, and reminded her of her ex boyfriends unwanted dry probings. In a desperate bid for freedom a few hours ago she had tried biting through her tongue, people did it in prison so she knew it was possible, but the pain was too sharp to work through and she didn'

In a mirror cracked by time.
I seem to have an infection,
Where everything has to rhyme.
I leave myself disgusted-
My case totally busted
I don't know what I see.
My mind is horribly twisted
How can I have existed?
I don't know who I'll be.
A heart in my hands
Slowly crushed by these bands
Of stubborn hate and fear.
A road of my own
Full of hopes that I've sown
Gently washed down by my tears.
What is there to say?
How can I escape
This prison I helped create?

A Tale of Two Broken Heartsyoung love,A Tale of Two Broken Hearts1 year ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
it was magical,
this tale i am about to tell,
they met in school,
he was antisocial,
she was bubbly and full of adventure,
somehow they crossed paths,
he tried to ignore her but failed miserably,
she was persistent,
they got to know each other well,
in the short passing of days,
they met on the rooftop one night,
the cold autumn wind blowing,
dangling feet over the edge,
the stars above,
the stars in her eyes,
he fell for her that night,
as they sat together,
the chilling wind blowed,
it drew them together,
they talked of things more personal,
of troubled pasts and presents,
and found comfort in one another,
they parted ways,
with a simple kiss on the cheek,
he was left stunned,
what a beautiful night it was,
it didnt take long for them to meet again,
up on that memorable rooftop,
he layed there watching the stars,
sneaking up she layed beside him,
she curled up in his arms and kissed him,
they fell deep in love,
it was magical for a while,
then one day tragedy struck,

Yank at the hourglass
Glued firmly to the table?

(Teen Titans femslash of Raven and Starfire. Don't read if you don't like it)
A little way into what seemed like the late afternoon, Raven looked down over the city. The tallest building, a church with a tall bell tower, provided a good vantage point as long as one ignored the bell ringing loudly on the hour.
Raven sat with her legs dangling over the side, holding the Beast Boy doll, and trying different magical means of turning it back into the real thing. She had given up trying to find the others when, whilst looking for them, she had sensed all of their life-forces vanish, abruptly, one by one. Trying not to think of what this might mean, she thought that if she could turn Beast Boy back, he would be able to transform into some animal or other, and sniff them out, or hear them calling. So, for half an hour, she had sat on the slanted tower roof, casting whatever spells she could remember that might help Beast Boy change back. Nothing had wor

Not a word but a sound.
The sound of silence.
An image of being underground.
Death; is a defiance.
We all die.
So why not of our own preference?
This life is all mine.
I shouldn't need your reference.
Why die in pain?
Why suffer that strain?
I may as well dance for the rain;
If I am to trust you and your decision.
My life is not a circumstance.
It's not for you.
You shouldn't get to choose.
Deem it appropriate not to lose.
You're not fighting this.
That is me.
And all good leader know when to leave.
To surrender to death is not surrender at all.
Because to die would be an adventure,
Death, the next path.
See, not so scary at all.

For now I feel nothing anymore,
So I shall lay here numb and in pain,
For i shall never be put together again,
For i have no Solace left in this world.

Reduce me to the echoing of a once whisper,
upon a rustic, willow trunks ear.
Bleed me into a burgundy velvet ocean,
drowning a thousand forevers in its never.
Tread carefully around me,
tiptoe on wishes and desires,
step over long lost intimacies,
tango with ideas the wind speaks of.
Deconstruct me into a flock of incandescent creatures,
hovering over hopes and dreams,
conducting the orchestra of sensation,
tuning the instruments of our melody.
Hear me in the deepest of silences,
amplify me with infinite wishes,
made upon a billion white specks,
painted on a navy silk fabric speaker.
Call my name out into vastness,
feel my presence unfold into layers, of creamy ephemeral pleasures,
attempt to hold me in your hands as I slip through your fingers,
leaving myself behind, screaming for a taste.
Cut me into a dozen miniature regrets,
sprinkle amnesia lightly across me,
serve me on a silver platter of eternity,

See I love to pretend that I'm someone pure
Never dirtied a sentence or darkened a door
It's like I'm holy and utterly clean
So don't take my tone as being mean

Let me show you how to be a snob on sight
Never use the language meant for 'boobs'
do you realise it's a synonym for a gormless rube?
Ah ha! You didn't, that means I'm right
My intellect wins; have you seen the light?
Oh my, what are you doing, that knife looks sharp
Eek! Help! You're stabbing my heart!
And that is why I killed him your honour...

Lost in the murmur of yesterdays.
Making a countdown of all the years
Tired of constantly fighting the tears.
My life moves on but my heart does not-
It refuses to simply be caught.
Remembers soft touches, a brush of a cheek
So many things that make it feel weak.
"Own person, own life"; They say it is mine
But right here is where I draw the line.
I gave it to him and he took it to keep,
He is who he is, for you sow what you reap.
Ghost, they call me, for so I am
Nothing more than the common man.
Now I lay me down to die,
So another is born and here I will lie.

But I still regret this.

To make sure I still feel.
I'll do it now and again,
To make sure it's still real.
I'm going to cry for all I've lost,
And you can't stop me.
These tears I cry at my cost,
For once will flow freely.
