Last breakfastAs I sat there at the table on my own,
I was waiting for a moment of peace
I was pondering my existence to be;
What I could expect after I decease
I took another sip from my cup of tea
And my mind sank into the unknown…
The light in the room dimmed down
As a shiver ran slowly down my spine
And I felt the darkness coming near
I breathed no longer but I felt just fine
The cold parlour floor caressed my ear
As I laid there in my morning gown…
For a man diesBreathe Slowly,For a man dies3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
For a Man dies every second, locked in the grip of the sky.
Walk with every step in mind,
Every twitch of a finger,
Every sound, from your head to the ground,
Keep them in mind.
For a man dies every second, the beginning of an eternal dance with the one in the heavens.
Remember every follicle of hair,
Every eye that stares, every moment of fear,
An evil glare, remember it all.
For a man dies every second, and a child cries for his death.
Live today like you'll wither the next,
For we too, can be locked in the reaper's grip.
Silent and GoneAlong the blue streams of those who were simplistically glassed, I drag my wooden, empty coffin; it contains only my past.Silent and Gone2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
For the many decades I've lengthened have expanded pain's time; across shallow mountains and beatings I prepare my final climb.
Through harsh mists and soft grasses the journey trembles on; days on end without my voices; alas, I realize they are gone.
Near all abandonment's shelter I rest without ease; my halved demon appears before me; she speaks hellishly in the breeze.
Forgiveness and hallucination she crisply burns in my eyes; I must awaken and continue, 'tis my time to remain wise.
To a judging stream near the greenish peaks, I sit down to somberly rest, screeching memories grasp my bloodied hands; these visions are merely a test.
And here at last is the accurate time, I lie down and breathe once to sigh, down the merciless falls I briskly crash; today was the day to die.

I thrive and depend on your compliments
And it is only then as a direct consequence,
Am I truly able to write with confidence.
Even though your words are only temporary.
I deem your contribution as utterly necessary,
In order to refresh my wavering, selective memory.
My own validation depends on your approval.
Whether it is congratulatory or discouragingly brutal.
Your input is the one thing that is most crucial.
Can I call myself a writer if I don't believe in myself?
When I constantly seek approval from everyone else?
How can I then expect to make any sort of wealth?
Of a craft and skill I still think anyone is able to produce.
Is there any point in me putting my apparent talent to use?
When I limit and submit myself into a negative recluse.
I was told I must have self belief in order to achieve,
The dream that I am so desperately trying to receive.
The body can only accomplish what the mind believes.
I know I must rid myself from any form of self doubt.

If only I could interpret you emotions
Understand what you're going through
See through your eyes
Hear through your ears
Feel through your heart
If only I knew how to help you
But I can't
And I don't
And it's killing me
So what do I do?

You make me cry,
You even make me wonder why.
Why do I put up with it all?
Why do I let you see my weakness?
Why do you keep me locked away?
You say you love me,
But lie to my face.
You make me love you,
What a discace.
I want to believe you,
When you say it will be okay,
But it's hard so hard to believe you.
Nothing feels right,
I keep up the fight.
So say you love me one more time,
Just one more time,
And you will once again be mine.

You see me,
My every rise and fall.
Is it you who knows me best..
Seen beyond the mask
When i'm down and depressed
Seen me the downright broken mess?
I look at you
you stare no slack
Behind my back
My knowledge of you ends
When I go my own way
But you watch me come and go
day after day..

You never breathe or say a thing.
You're a monster.
Torn to shreds without a word.
I'm a ghost.
Lost when you needed me the most.
I don't care.
You've let me down.
You're the cruel one.
Goodbye to you and all you've done.

just comes undone,

save what's left,

save the life,

I can't keep hold,
of what I've got.
This isn't losing,
the lost is gone,
this is choosing from nothing,
this is bruising,
my heart it's wrong,
this is me and what is left.

Spinning, spiraling, chasing you everywhere you go
"It had to happen."
No, it didn't.
Turn off the light.
Stop breathing, it's not worth it.
Play a sad song in your head
"Are you okay?"
I miss you.
I miss your voice
How could you be?
"It's not your fault."
Slowly, let it poison you
Let it sink into your mind
"You'll get better."
No I won't.
"It was meant to happen."
No it wasn't.
No.. he's not.
... "I know."
Their StoriesI've read so many stories,Their Stories3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
yet none appeal to me
I want the weak minded thought's,
I want to know their dreams
I'm sick of strong male characters,
and feisty female minds
I want someone who can't take it,
someone who's lost the fight
I want the truth behind the lies
Not the mask that hides the shy
I want their inner feelings,their core
I want to know their hearts, do they feel remorse?
I want to know their fears, their worries
I need to know who they are, their stories
In my Lover Arms ForeverI've waited for you for a long timeIn my Lover Arms Forever3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But time has kept us apart
Through the years that has happened
All I wish was to see you for a life time
Time has been cruel to all
But to me this is what fate tells us
Deep inside we were always meant to be
Cause your my lover and forever my future
Its been said to all
that we always had a purpose to live
Now I speak the truth to all
Cause my heart always tells me its right
Its been for so long
that I never had this feeling
Until the day that I met you
I knew that I was free to this world
Life has its moments to all
I have got to say that this was best of all
All the thing that we share
This is the precious gift anybody could ask for
Now all I ever want
is to be close beside you where I belong
Cause forever fate will guide us
and forever we will never be apart
This is what we all have hoped for
dreamed of, and nurtured every day
This is all I ever wanted in life
was to be safe in my Lover arms forever
Alone In The CrowdHelp me shed this cloak of confusionAlone In The Crowd3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And take me back to my home,
I'm tired of this seclusion
Slamming lies into all I've known.
I'm counting eternal hours
Numbers in nocturnal sleep.
The glass in which we shower
Can't hold back what you keep.
I want you to help me dream
And show me how to act.
From a river, into a stream;
What is it that I lack?
The gleam of your necklace
Reflects all of my want.
Is it because I was reckless?
Is it me that they haunt?
Ushered into an unwanted grave
Bound in chains, drowned in steel.
I was made into a social slave
And died as if I were not real.

Rejoice not in the end
But in the beginning of a new time
A time with nothing but the memories of me
Don't be sad my friend
My oldest, dearest companion
Everything that exists had a beginning
And must at one point cease
I do not know where I will go
Yet I am sure I will not linger
Do a service to my path laid out ahead
Tarry me not in my completed task
I might wrestle with an angel among the heavens
Or I might lead unto nothing
Of this nothing is certain
Aside from the inevitability
Remember me when I'm gone
My dearest, oldest friend
Know that in your heart I am prepared
Only your longing traps me here

Splatter my life apon the grass,
Loose myself based on the passed.

Say goodbye to your lover,
Say goodbye to your pushover.
This life is mine.

Reflects my true desires
It knows my every truth
It knows that I'm a liar
The glass in front of me
Holds all my secrets
It locks them away
Buries my regrets
The glass in front of me
Will never set me free
It keeps me trapped inside myself
Only to pretend, never to be

Knows what it must do
The glass in front of me is a mirror

The one who's all steam
The one without a dream.
He'll take you home
To his castle of chrome
To be his imperfect clone.
Give him what he wants
He smiles and he taunts
He laughs and he haunts.
Force those three little words out
He likes it when you scream and shout
He likes it when you beg and pout.
Tell yourself that it's real
When you find him in bed with her
When you make him lose his temper.
Because that's all you are to him,
Another excuse to be angry.
A seed of lust gone too far for him,
But you meant everything to me.

Take me unto yourself and remedy my envy?
May I implore you to conduct and to orchestrate
My lust to kill, all of my dislike and my hate?
Teach me to use my music to cease a life
Symphonies to end the stress and the strife
Discords to break and measures of silence
Cacophonies to kill without need of violence.
Let them behold my hands conducting the nightmare
Using harmonics to threaten their welfare
I break the waves with a rising crescendo
Only to crouch again into diminuendo.
My accolade, it synthesizes with ceasing existence
Alto and tenor, both louder than their repentance
A caesura not corrected to re-write their death
My music forgets that they ever drew breath.
They sung A Capella as my symphonies strolled with you
A scream and an echo that every listener would rue.
The dynamics of your music gave life unto mine
And when I set my signature you helped keep time.
From the twilight I compose a sparkling sonata
And you accompany it with a bri

But all I hear,

I pray for a sound,from those of the dead

On my walls, the days are written
There are none that haven't been said
I look up, for a sign,
for the tears I've cried
But all I hear,

I take an object to my head
Whisper my final words
I pull the trigger
Silence is heard

And your most evident evil streak.
I love the way you listen.
While your teeth shine and glisten.
I love the way you play like a child.
Always wonderfully wacky and wild.
I love the way you don't notice my stare,
The way you leave your soul open, bare.
I love the way you walk,
And pffft, I most certainly do not stalk.

a question asked,
a layered mask
of fear and thought and love,
of the dove
the one that flies
as it glides on broken wings.
Oh, he sings,
and it rings
and it lingers in the air
past the fair
golden hair of a lion.
And he's cryin'
and he's livin' for the kill
and the spill,
of the blood.
A bleeding flood
past the frown
upon the face
of a women dressed in lace,
of the chase of the land
in the sand
leaping, dying all
a rusty red.
In my head,
oh the light
in the eyes of the life
always fight for the everlasting will,
makes no sence, take the pill
brings a sail of golden hope
to be crushed, washed with soap,
clean and dead.
Oh the river's full of lead,
dark and flowing
specked with gold
in the mold
sold for life
but worth nothing, strife
is what it brings.
And still he sings!
The broken dove
who brings love,
and tears away
we will die
and leap through the sky
to an abyss,
to the mist.
