2:00 A.M.So late last night that it was early this morning2:00 A.M.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I lay awake thinking of you
And how the gentle curve of your upper lip
Becomes more and more beautiful
Every time you smile
And I thought of how this summer night
Already unbearably hot
Would become infinitely warmer
If you were on the other side
Of this lonely bed
And I imagined that the sheets
Tangled around your ankles
Would mirror your hair
Tangled around your sleeping face
At 2:00 in the morning
Come a Bit CloserCome a bit closer and stand nearCome a Bit Closer1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Really close so no one will hear
Each day that we have known each other
My heart has come closer to that of another
Come a bit closer and you shall see
Just how much he means to me
Look at how my hands do tremble
Surly it is a tell-tale symbol
Come a bit closer and hear the unknown
See how much my fondness has grown
Sometimes it is difficult to contain
I fear my secret will drive me insane
Come a bit closer and hear what I say
I come a bit closer to you everyday
I Miss YouIt's been a year, but you're still constantly thereI Miss You3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The memory of you and the pain you couldn't bear
No matter what I said or did I just could not get through
And now I'm forced to live every day without you
They tell me there's nothing I could have done
To stop the blade that cut your ties
But this hollow ache is making me come undone
All I want is you back by my side
I always keep your note right by my side
I read it over and over until I can only stare
I might not have known just how often you cried
But why did you think that nobody cared?
Every Journey Has An EndingIf I would have nine lives,Every Journey Has An Ending2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
maybe in one of them,
I would smile to a star called Desire,
which appears from time to time on the sky of an unknown planet,
to make life brighter.
With eight lives, I would think I'm so rich,
that I would be able to find that wonderful legendary golden dragon
and with generosity,
maybe he would protect me from emptiness.
With seven lives,
I would be so proud by my beauty,
that maybe I would forget
that you can not live so long without having a doubt.
With six lives,
I would turn the ashes of the Universe in diamonds
and maybe all known or unknown eyes,
would see the light.
With five lives,
maybe I would discover from where springing the rainbow
and I would catch roots
in an certain Tomorrow.
With four lives,
maybe I would be very selfish
and I would believe that my heart can sing
and that song could stop time passing.
With three lives,
I would dream that my insanity was cured
I would be able to learn to love.
With two lives,
I would start to app
Halloween MagicHundreds of knocks upon my doorHalloween Magic1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
in one night
it drives me insane!
To open and greet
these ugly little faces
each, requesting the same.
A ghost, a goblin,
a fairy, a ghoul
a devil, with horns and a fork;
a little guy in baggy clothes
his face, half covered with cork...
Bag upon bag
loaded with goodies
they rush, from door to door.
the October of the night
to be replaced by more...
vampires, skeletons, trolls...
Noise and more noise
they take their claims
bearing us, their devilish souls...
But looking into
their sweet little faces
do we not really enjoy it?
My fellow adults
as much as we think
by the name of all madness
we'd like to destroy it?
For Halloween comes
but once a year.
And were we not young once, too?
We went through it all
the whole spooky bit,
when jacko-lanterns eyes
seemed to move...
Behind the flicker of a flame
that was touched, by the night
which secretly, left us 'all' in doubt...
No! Not a night that we dread

will one find relief
step down from yourself
you silent speaking gods
in the air above
the music is nothing
in the children ear
from the east to the west
finding the right cord
to pluck will be my
safety net for now
I will escape your grip
on me forever
your chains will fall
your end is near
and then you will see
oh flying spirt guide
take me away from it all
end this madness

Never Forget This DayI am trapped insideNever Forget This Day1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Four walls around me
With a screen of blue
Can’t find my way
Out of this place
I am being sucked dry
Needle pin pricks
Of pain deep inside
Tell me am alive
Flying demons of
Broken leather wings
Keep flying overhead
My insides want
To explode forever
My lips frozen shut
That can’t scream or shout
To warm others about
Spin dry full forward
Going around and around
Black smoke choking
Outside of town
Black rain coming down
This moment in time
Is standing still and
Just goes on and on
Everyone will remember
The number 911 forever
When this day is gone

Between Human And BeastThe beast tried to run away but now is squatted on the ground,Between Human And Beast4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Desperate it tries to howl but what comes out is just blood,
With fangs and claws they are ripping off its skin,
They are displaying satisfied a sardonic grin.
While wresting its flesh, humans they claim to be,
Killing the beast, they say is setting the world free,
Bound in chains it lies dreaming to the last breath,
But they won't listen to its despairing cries for a sudden death,
Because the beast is accused of defiance,
Being different - maybe was made with the Devil a compliance.
Lacerating its bruised skin with their crooked teeth,
The beast is wailing, blood gushing from underneath,
Its body turning to a mass of broken bones and slaughtered flesh,
The painful cry extinguish willing to shape a start afresh,
But the poor soul hangs by a thread,
Its eyes are dry, the blood had been shed.
A fact between human and beast,
For which the death of the innocent is a reason to feast,
Someone really owns the power over oth

Azi, perdeaua s-a miscat din nou in locul in care obisnuiai sa imi citesti versuri.
Azi,s-au pierdut toate ,ma ingan cu amintirea glasului tau pierdut undeva in abis
Si imi astept si eu pieirea.
Am refuzat sa ma mai pierd in lacrimi si in vise bocite in odaie,
Am refuzat sa cred ca nu mai esti
Stiu ca, undeva, pierdut in fericire esti tu si imi citesti de-acolo,
Dar eu e asa trist ca nu te mai pot auzi e ,totusi,prea dinvreme
Am mai imbatranit cu o zi,nu se cunoaste, dar eu ma simt atat de veche fara tine
Peste mine s-au asternut toate in trecerea lor grabita: si timpul si vantul..si tu.
Ma asez la fereastra si scriu,aici, unde adesea imi citeai din tine vesel ca un soare de iunie.
Pe mine m-au vestejit lumina,apa si focul din ianuarie.
Si sunetul vantului pe la ferestre mi-a vestejit timpanul
Poate de asta nu te mai aud citind, nu te mai vad zambind.
Poate am vestejit eu si dusa sunt de nu te
Hurts Like HeavenOh. My.Hurts Like Heaven3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
God, it hurts like heaven;
Longing for all your affection,
Every bit of your attention,
You're a divine intervention.
In this life that's turned to hell.
I can't help it when I reminisce,
In moments that are just like this,
I remember when we had our kiss,
And now how much I really miss,
The times when we weren't separated,
Were the best memories that I've created,
To reunite is long awaited,
I feel like I'm incarcerated,
In my own personal hell.
I can't help it when I think of you...
I hope one day we'll say "I do."
But for now I have to struggle through,
Until the day I get to you...
It won't be long, love, I know we'll be fine...
So, darling, stay strong and keep your hand held in mine...
I'll never let you go and I'll always make amends...
I'll hold on to you forever, or until forever ends...
