Soft the sound of the creature's yawn,
Soft the wind ventures in trees,
Soft the humming of the bees,
Soft the song of the whistling bird,
Soft the song for of all to be heard,
Soft the rustle of the leaves,
Soft the hustle in the waking breeze,
Soft the dawn,
Soft it glows,
Soft and gentle,
Softly it goes.
Chasing the Sun and EclipsingChasing the SunChasing the Sun and Eclipsing2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Feels so amazing chasing the sun
Head thrown back, running through the field
Letting out a yip, giving into the chase
Deep breaths, in and out
So warm, so exciting
My heart pounds with every leap
Following you with faithful steps
The light catches your hair
You are a beacon
Thrilled and falling down,
Stumbling just a little to catch up
Each breath rejuvenating
I had forgotten how to run until you
Until you found me
So very close
Daylight fading but it feels so amazing
To finally be chasing the sun
Have only just begun
My feet fly towards you
I feel forever young
My heart pumping, eliminating any doubts I may have had
Yes, yes, yes so close
To finding you
To capturing you
You are crystal from your head to your toes
Vibrating from deep within
Listening to music on your head phones
Looking into your eyes
The world fogs around the music
My world is grey, thunder struck
Electric around your hands, singing soft
I Want To Love YouI know I'm supposed to love you.I Want To Love You2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I know deep down I do.
I hope I do.
I don't like feeling this way about you,
But so often are you nasty to me.
I'm sick of taking your abuse.
I'm sick of feeling like I'm living the same day over and over.
I want to love you,
But you make it difficult.
I want to love you,
But that isn't my feelings in my heart.
I wish that you thought logically,
Like everyone else.
It makes me frustrated.
I just want you,
To realize what's happening to me.
I need you to give me more then just money.
I need the love that hasn't been provided,
I just feel alone.
I want to love you,
But I can't.
I hate you.
Always A Black Veil Brides Soilder (Poem)Always A Black Veil Brides Soilder (Poem)2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Sitting alone on my bed,
listening to that which calms me,
ignoring the monsters in my head,
pumping my fist along to Black Veil Brides,
I'll always be a soldier in the BVB Army,
The music makes me forget,
all the pain,
I no longer want to fit in,
with the people,
They drive me insane,
I may be,
but that's just me,
One day i'll be free of my past,
because of the music that made me last,
earbuds in my ears,
listening to the screaming,
screams that wipe away my fears,
taking me to the place of my dreaming,
a place where i'm accepted,
because we're all outcasts,
in our own way,
we'll never feel rejected,
no matter what others say,
BVB's music will always take me away!
AbandonedI found love,Abandoned2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In other guys.
While you were preoccupied,
With your depression and sickness.
Mom was never around,
Because she was taking care of you.
You abandoned me.
You left me to fend for myself.
You left me fatherless.
I learned how to be alone.
I learned how to be independent.
I learned how to be fatherless.
You need to be persuaded.
You need to be put away.
You need to get better.
I've tried to persuade you.
I've tried to put you away.
I'm trying to help you get better.
You are so blind to the love you have.
To what you have abandoned.
That you are being selfish.
You cried when you couldn't be with us,
That first time.
I saw that you cared.
Now all I see is a grumpy,
I just hope one day,
You abandoned me.
But I'll never abandon you.

And it’s beautiful.
All the colours,
Make the world less dull.
It’s a bizarre idea,
That death is beautiful.
But death is beautiful.
It just means there will be another cycle of life.
You can feel the death all around you,
With the cold,
The trees that are becoming bare.
And its magnificent.

You're killing him.
You're killing me.
Doesn't notice a thing.
You call 100 times a day.
You want me to come home.
It's always about you.
You only gave me money.
You only gave me a roof.
You never gave me love.
You only want me as your prisoner.
You only want the same for him.
Let us go.
You are sick.
You need help.

your grey pearl skin
sharply curved, gently angled.
you murmured something jumbled from

i left you chasing clouds- just there.

you liked me better then than now, i'm certain.

the trees i never climbed
are yours now,
as are the fields i forgot to run.
my childhood becomes you, darling.
i left you cooking dreams- something sweet, bitter, and ephemeral.
something palely simmering and doused in flame.
you ran your fingers along lines of coriander and lemongrass,

My TreasureThere once was a treasure,My Treasure2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I held very dear.
He was beautiful,
And everything I ever wanted.
My heart was so content,
That I spent all my time with him,
Because I knew that what I had,
Was so precious.
I put all my time and effort into it.
But in the end,
He didn't see what he had.
He left me in the pit I dug myself,
To find my wondrous treasure,
The one I found him in,
And he buried me in the ground.
Now I guess I'll be someone's treasure.
But I won't take advantage,
Of the soul that looks for love.

it hangs on my chest,
a defiant noise -
the scent of something luscious
stretched between your hips.
Your back arches
in a way only Psyche can feel.
You wear it
in a cheap red dress
that comes apart like midsummer
in my hands
as we flaunt the stars,
the stones under our skin
stretching the bed frame
till we crack.
And I fill you up,
your arms a battle
raging in the waning lies

one hour cocooned in secret blanket whispers of love,
next hour we are colliding words and silences at a hundred miles an hour,
shattering doorframes and splintering walls.
the bed watches sheepily from downy eyes and
wonders where we went wrong,
before receiving a blow to the side when i start to cry.
you never could stand my crying.
we spend nights with fingertips matched,
with eyelashes watching and guarding our murmurs of violent devotion, we swear off fighting only to be woken again
by bitter sunlight scratching your eyelids to raw and my senses to pale.
i shudder accidents into our lives and
your eyes shut off to me, iron gated they watch me scream for you.
some days my screams don't even reach you.
you stare unseeing at my ears, my fingernails, my shoulder.
a thousand years of rubble tumbling into each other,
marble of greek columns into concrete of new york skyscrapers.

more alive than you

i'll let you

Gilded cageFrom far away, the moonlight still manages to findGilded cage2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A trace of the girl all the world left behind.
The essence of her voice, the glow within her eyes,
She is the living paragon of all they despise
And once she found out, she was simply disgusted
Of all those empty words from the people she trusted.
But oh, little birdie, there's no need for rage,
You've been trapped all along inside this gilded cage.
The smiles you encountered, the love you received
Were by no means affectionate, you've been deceived.
Though life is unmerciful, you used to rejoice
So tell me, if given the chance what would be your choice?
Would you prefer this lie and indulge happily in your youth
Or live on begrudgingly knowing the truth?
The tenderness that's herWith every word written, with every word spokenThe tenderness that's her2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I try my best to express myself, without it being broken
For what I feel is deep in my heart, is love that I want to be showing
Every day it develops, every day I feel more loving
Is the tenderness of passion, which I’ve never felt before
A feeling that I got from a girl who I truly adore
Beautiful as a rose and gentle as a peaceful dove
My heart gets filled with warmth, a feeling I describe as love
She’s the most beautiful girl I’ve seen, that’s as simple as I can be
So very cute and filled with joy, she’s the only girl who I want to see
Her adorable smile that always cheers me up, she’s the only one I need
She’s everything I ever wanted, I thank god that he gave her to me
