First KissRose lips, perched slightlyFirst Kiss3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Eyes closed, awaiting for my move
Like chess, I move forward to my queen
Hesitant as ever, I push my lips to hers
Awkwardness washes over like rain
There are no sparks or fireworks
No swelling of my heart
Just two pairs of lips
That is, until we started to dance
A happy waltz between our mouths
Moving in sync with each other
A soft moan escapes from her mouth into mine
And I feel the warm sensation in my stomach
Dying to make its way everywhere else
The feeling of a first kiss
MasochistI would fleck the empty midnight streets with stars of every color, because you deserve light. I would cut my nails, if it would help. I'd find my ugly black veins, and cut them all out, so you could have a direct line to my arteries. I would stand on the edge of the fifth floor, and I'd give you the second before I stepped off. I want to give you the moment before I open my eyes each day, and I would give you a stone tear. I've been saving all my lies for you because I know you like the way they feel in your mouth.Masochist3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And I've kept all my ugly parts back, even when you peel back my skin and look.
But there's only one piece of me you will take, and as you do, I shiver in pain.

Confined there is no way forward,
And no escape route to look towards.
Forced and fake conversations.
Moss on the BrainThere are lichens in the niches,Moss on the Brain3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Flies in the folds,
And moss on the mess
That is my waterlogged brain.
A doctor investigated my seedy skull,
And he sent me to a specialist,
Who referred me to a gardener,
Down at my local shopping mall
So leave a message after the tone,
I'm too busy attending to my own
Version of reality, where fantasies roam.
DeceiverYou were my biggest fan,Deceiver3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And I stabbed you in the back.
I didn't try to,
But accidentally mislead you.
You opened up to me, said I inspired you.
You told me I was courageous, your hero.
You were troubled and emotionally fragile,
And in the moment I wasn't careful.
My intentions were better, but the result equaled that of the jerks I despise for the way they mistreat.
Hypocritically making you a foundation, then yanking it out from under your feet.
I gave you hope, but proceeded to trip clumsily
Over it and shatter it just as quickly.
I saw the problem and tried to prevent it while it was still approaching,
But I misjudged and was too late as it was already encroaching.
Now you're blaming yourself when it's wrong to do so,
Please don't leave now, I never wanted you to go,
I can no longer look myself in the eye,
Everything I said now seems like a lie.
I wanted to help you and be your friend,
But I only hurt you and dragged you down in the end.
Selfish loveI burnt your letters, ate your photographs,Selfish love3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
That only I be witness to your kind approach;
Erased your number, learnt its digits avidly by heart,
That only I may hear your gentle voice afar.
I'm coming over now, to paint your windows black
And cover you with veils of linen cloth.
Do let me kiss your eyelids shut,
So noone sees them sing that silent song.
And then we'll bury you inside my heart
As likewise I descend in yours,
To die an unrepenting Death;
As thankfully, we deprive each other
Of oxygen, whilst feeding on
Our promise of eternity.
The Mask ~ A SonnetThe Mask ~ A Sonnet3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The Mask Sonnet 26
White rose petals fall down on red satin sheets alone
Quiet footsteps down the hall leading you away
Dangerous feelings leading to the unknown
Are we different? My worlds color has gone grey,
Sway from the world and let go of our breath
Intimately close to danger, why can't I go?
Tempting to go, I'm not so scared of death
But I am not reckless; I'm free like snow
Falling free without a care, what a lie
Hiding behind a mask cause I'm afraid
But with him, it's gone and away, I'm not shy
Now that I am aware I shall never fade
Getting through the day I know now I'm strong,
Cause now I know that I never truly was wrong.
The Smell of RainAll the friends who left in SpringThe Smell of Rain3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Indicated that rationality was futile
And the world was a better place
Without you in it.
It is hot, but smells of thunder.
Please don't wake me. I was dreaming.
I can't remember what about,
But it had to be better than this.
The windows are open, so you can't turn on the light
And resort to writing these faded words in the dark.
It is probable that you are lonely,
But saying it aloud is as inadequate as imagination.
It seems like the right place for an interlude.
But I shouldn't think about suicide too much.
It makes the walls change colour.
It makes you seem further away.
Distance, language, emptiness and the sound of crickets lamenting.
You can see it, can't you?
The way that light clings to the skin because it has nowhere to go
And the concept of being lost aches like December.
It has to hold on to something,
To prevent it from simply being an illusion
For an audience with their eyes closed.
I used to be like you. Then I woke up.
And found that I

paving a path through weed and grass,
like a drunk tiptoeing on flashlights
the bottle clenched in forgetting hands,
blurring fireflies with lies like watercolors
dimming darker the hue of the night time sky
The stars escorted me through the night,
away from the bridge and its quivering height

Ode to the UnderdogAlways stand tall, even if its on your tippy toes.Ode to the Underdog3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Always try to reach higher, even if you have to climb on the backs of giants.
But never forget that your pride is your shield and so you have to hold it in your offhand as protection
Only the weak-minded wield pride as a weapon.
So selfishSlowly he puts the gun to his temple,So selfish3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A moment of doubt for something so simple.
A loud bang and he falls to the floor,
his family screaming as they burst through the door.
If only they had realized, if only they'd seen
that he was not well, insane it would seem.
The signs were all there, paranoia and depression.
He had thought it through completely, to the point of obsession.
The only release, a sweet moment of bliss
only to bring it all to this.
So foolish, so weak, so selfish to die.
But to carry on with life, living a lie.
He had to do it, it was the only way.
No longer would he be tormented, living day by day.
The pain was too much, the choices so slim.
It was either he went out, or took them all with him.
Slowly he puts the gun to his temple,
reflecting on his choices, so simple.
A loud bang, and his hand just trembles,
a moment of doubt, his world had crumbled.
His family bursts through the thick oak door
Only to find the gun on the floor.
He couldn't do it, couldn't follow thro

And those playful words
with their fingers and their pain

Our FaithOur Faith is the ironic nonbelieverOur Faith3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
in anything beyond this earthly flesh.
She writes about the future as a lost bohemian utopia,
a place her starving readers need,
we who have known
in our deepest parts a feeling
like forgetting how to climb stairs
we who have dreamt of mattresses
on deflated inflatable beds, weekend eyes gummy,
mouths sticky and full of a taste we can't spit out
while we wait for more time
and for the train to arrive, finally.
Our Faith writes a someday like cheesecake in our mouths,
thick and real as childhood dreams of flying,
and when we're waiting for nights of humid neon freedom,
waiting to ride the swells of another body
and breathe in the heartbeat from electric skin
without looking over our shoulders to see what God has to say,
her somedays taste like long-lost elegance and laughter,
like driving nowhere through summer fields, windows down,
and like big-city balconies, watching car lights on the beloved faces
of those who will miss who you really ar

No big deal,
Just your word.
Don't deny me.
Destroy my world.

The deed is done.

I won't plead
Because that's just
Not who I am.
FateFate.Fate3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Everyone has their own idea as to what it is
Why things happen
Everything happens for a reason
Most of the time, we control it
Other times, it happens
Just to let other things fall into place
Timing doesn't exist to me
I believe things should be said
As soon as possible
There never is a good time for anything
You just have to let your thoughts come out
Whenever you please
Silver LightMidnight casts a Silver glowSilver Light3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Upon an elegant girl.
She's kind and smart, and noble and pure,
But the Silver makes her swirl.
It confuses her, It blinds her eyes,
It makes her love things she'd normally despise.
Silver, Silver, ghastly light
Haunts her waking dream tonight,
Trips her, nips at her petulantly,
It cries to be reckoned with, pleas to be seen.
It devours her love, It tears through the screen.
And then, she'll wake up to the perilous scene
To find that It was far more,
Far more than just a dream.
