Our eyes meet, dart away

Why do we never stop or say, "Hello?"

Up Root/Down StemPluck me down from the apple treeUp Root/Down Stem5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Whose roots extend so deep,
Hold me in your pale, small hand
I'm good enough to eat.
With lashes long and lips so red and
teeth as white as snow
You bite into my cold, hard flesh,
Not what you wanted at all.
Over the shoulder, Earth to meet,
An echo of the sound
of footsteps soft and gait so light,
Your roots reach through my ground.
Strong a tug, mighty a pull,
beastly is the hull
of the world as round spun upside-down
as an apple-turning top.
Uprooted from the sturdy place
of stem once fused with tree
Cascades once again into starless night
And for-ever-dark a deep, black sea.

Depression at MidnightDepression at Midnight1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Moving in and out
Of the light
That graces half your face
Your impersonation of a phantom?
I shielded my eyes
As you changed clothes
I didn't see a thing
Though you don't believe
I'm staying out of trouble
Does that please you?
I found no other
What about that?
My head is pounding
Searching for relieve
I've run out of placebos
Sleep is gonna be rough
I thought I saw you today
I even gave you a call
But as usual though
It rung, and rung, and went to voicemail
Does it even matter at this point
My life is nowhere I want
Does love matter,
When I can't even take care of myself
Well, does it?
I Want to Get Out of HereI think I have grown in the shape of a squareI Want to Get Out of Here6 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
That is the shape of my box.
My feet at my chest and my hands in my hair
bound with no keys and no locks.
Inside my box is cramped and tight,
And when I breathe it rattles.
During the daytime I see no light
In here I fight no battles.
My breath is stale and my hair is tangled,
All I know is the dark.
I fear that I am horribly mangled
From living conditions so stark.
I want to get out and see the ocean
For there is a world to see:
The sun and the moon and the stars in motion
All laid out for me.
Being stuck in a box is bad, I believe
For my muscles and my bones
But my body might fall apart if I leave:
This box is all I know.
In here I feel little sorrow or pain
Inside and out I'm numb.
I feel not the wind, nor the cold, nor the rain
In silence, I am dumb.
A terrible ache settles deep in my soul
Past limbs twisted far back
Shut away from the world, I can never be whole:
All that is living, I lack.
"How hateful, how horrid this box is!" I crie

One final leap into the depths below is all it really takes
Open my lungs up, and let freezing freedom take my breath away
I did my time here on Earth, I served my time in life
So now I'm done, it's over, I no longer need to be alive
I've seen what cannot be unseen, I've done what I cannot undo
I cannot change the past, and the future is what I cannot live through
A watery grave is what I have dreamed of, it's all I have ever really wanted
A slow, and silent decent, it's an honor to finally become one of the departed
My eyes unknowingly darken, as I instantly try to grasp onto the last of the light
Realizing this is the last time I'll see through my human body, it's such a beautiful sight
But crying underwater seems like it's impossible to do, so I'll still try my best to defy the odds
Because I know I've felt all of the different kinds of pain, so this is me letting go of what I've got

In The Distance
I've realized that nothing never really ends
Because it's just the beginning of the emptiness
I want to take back my actions / I want to give you reasons
I said all of the words I've needed
And to the mirror
I wish those were silent confessions / I wish none of this had happened
I finally let out all of those feelings I hid
Beneath my surface
They're just emotions from a fallen / Because without you I'm nothing
I meant every single tear I cried
My one true purpose
I'm feeling so forsaken and faithless / To my world you're everything
I couldn't hold on as I slowly let go of my grip
It took the best of me
All of our moments are worth remembering / This pain in my soul is worth keeping
I didn't stay silent forever as I let my cries slip
So I could weep pathetically
I hope you find the happiness you're seeking / So only one of us will be crying
I will alw

Your promises kept~
Breaking Breaking Breaking
I tried to hold those hopeful words you said
But you've always managed to hurt the both of us in the end
Our tears shed~
Seething Seething Seething
Down and away like liquified memories of regret
While every stinging mistake rushes back and quickly spreads
My hands left~
Trembling Trembling Trembling
I find myself feeling lost in this inner emptiness
As all my love for you continually escapes from my chest
This is our last resort / Please, don't say it's so
There's no trusting me anymore / Please, you don't have to go
We tried, but it just can't work / Then I swear that I will change
I lied, and made everything worse / Then give us more time, and just wait
I don't want to make you cry ever again / I'd rather have you than nothing
I can't stand being the source of your pain / I want you to know that you're my everything
I know you're better off without me / But I will

Wings Of Fire
Damages have been reversed
I have many flaws to be purged
Tempted for the gift of death to end this living curse
I plead for you to pass the torch
Hand over the destiny I've been waiting for
I can no longer endure this unbearable dirge
Send me off to the fiery abyss
Free me from life's grip
Weep not for past sins
Leave behind those memories
Weep not for scarred skin
Forgive those memorable tragedies
Let go of that darkness within
Grasp onto serenity
Lift up the veil for the ending
Hold onto clarity
There's peace within pain
Calm can engulf the chaos
There's love behind the hate
Freedom can mask the greatest weakness
Mourning for the abandoned promises
Though I can't undo what was really said
Because soon I will be turned into ashes
Please do not follow my footprints of flame
They only lead down a lonely path full of blame
There's no honorable life or death for what I became
Burn away this cruel reality

(I Gave) My Soul (To You)
I'm inadvertently lost in that smile of yours
And in each and every single word that you say
Sometimes I don't even know who I am anymore
As you lead me on a path that I'll never astray
I will keep following you
Because I want you
And every night I can't help but watch you sleep
Down from the countless flickering stars, I'm soaring
And every time I wish I could step into your dream
Through the calming dead of light, I'm falling
I will keep loving you
Because I fell hard for you
While you're slumbering, I put my ear to your welcoming chest
And I can't help but lose myself within the echoing sounds
Putting me into a trance, it's such a feeling I will never forget
For those cherished memories are found
I will forever remember you
Because I need you
I never dare to slip into unconsciousness
As I pretend to meld myself into your fantasies
Entering a world that leaves me feeling somewhat restless

The world is dark,
with malice lurking around every corner; intent on harming your fragile mind,
waiting to permanently place cracks in your frail life,
inch by inch,
bringing a fate that no one deserves,
waiting for you to fall into the dark puddle,
that will slowly drown you in sorrow and sadness
close your eyes,
let them rest,
let waves wash away the harsh reality;
let them flood happy memories into what has been tainted,
let them bring the forgiving, the merciful,
with amazing surprises around every corner,
let them repair the cracks,
place your hope together, piece by piece,
step by step,
play in the puddles,
left behind by the waves that slowly carried you through a corridor,
so at the end,
you could open your eyes,
and see the light at the end of the tunnel

Minna-san!! Konnichiwa!! How are you to day? I hope your fine!!
You remember what we have learnt last time? The "Janai" thing I told you that the negative form of "desu" is "janai" & both of them have a past form "Datta" & "janakatta" .
I told you also that the next lesson (This lesson) will be about the interrogative form but I changed my mind because it's too easy All what you have to do is to add the particle "ka" at the end of the sentence Like this:
"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
So I decided to teach you something more useful & I guess you will like it!! How to say "I like something" & "I don't like something"!!
Ladies & gentlemen Today's lesson!!

I knew pain, neglect, distrust.
How weak, how penitent am I
that I bow my pride to you.
Please, will you offer relief
if I beg and flatter ‘til suns
fade and moons crumble to dust,
for me, this foolish pained man?
Inside I am sore, so sorry-
weary of living beside my hateful,
lonely shadow who dares not reckon
for me: unholy, empty, impure.
But you, my dear, fill me up
to the brim with cool, clear
please ease the ache of my dried insides.

Savor the metallic-laced taste
masked by succulent shine,
the tantalizing innocence of
young, freckled flesh.
Walk into the wolf-trap
and writhe no more,
but know that an audience watches
you come undone in shame.
No fortified diamond,
no silver plea can loosen the grip
of the noose
which you so willingly knelt for.

It was what you didn't say
that drove the bullet home.
Or maybe it's how you looked at me
with such accusing eyes
and wheedled and plucked and uncovered
all my cleverest lies.
But now I'm beginning to think
the reason for all my cries
is how you stole my insurance card
and used me as a disguise
for all your online scams
and dating sites for foreign whores;
You finally stole my identity
for that high-speed cop car chase
after your last national bank robbery.
That last one really irks me.
