Screaming from the BalconyFeel the need to bleed for me
To bleed for life and liberty
Apart from pain, and guilt that holds
Refrain from touching divers golds
You live your lives accordingly
Fight to survive, and to be free
Don't let that right slip through your hands
Applaud and clap from within your stands
A speech, a speech, a speech, a speech
Time to practice what I preach
He stares at all the people out
He opens his mouth, but..
words wont come out....

Blood stains painting my flesh,
The wounds deeper than ever before,
A white gown now a short black dress.
Long tangled hair clinging to my tears
Wind howling through the trees,
Moonlight painting a sky so clear,
And darling, I'm going to be set free.
My fingers scratch at the blood on my skin,
A delightful pain at the thought of a touch,
And hey, everyone who said I wasn't worth it,
Now am I good enough?
A Path For The HumbleAssaulted daily, and forgotten foreverA Path For The Humble4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Flies high for a moment, then bombarded by weather;
A nameless soul whose path was chosen
Fighting daily in mind, but in body, still frozen;
Disowned by the strong, accepted by the weak
Falls like rain, but thunders when he speak;
Taller than most, but goes with the small
low the low road so no pain when he fall;
"Whom shall I send?" He stood in the back
Accepted the call, and picked up the slack;
A soldier whose isn't worthy of title
Whose God is real, no worshiping idols;
Traded the world for rags and scrap
But lives this life to avoid the trap;
A mind of a rebel, and a heart of a champ
A fire that burns in a soul not damp;
I follow a path--content, no mumble...
A truth path chosen by the lowly and humble.
Midnight DanceYour fingers slide in between mine,Midnight Dance3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Our hands perfectly entwined.
Your arm wraps tenderly around my waist,
As you whirl me around and we trace
imaginary patterns on the floor.
Everything about you I adore,
as my head lies gently on your shoulder,
And we dance a dance that is older
Than time itself.
Your scent engulfs my mind,
And brings with it memories so refined,
Filled with pure emotion,
To you I promise complete devotion.
My senses are drowned out,
So that there is no room for any doubt,
Past worries and fears I twirled
As I fell into another world.
Hope and love fill my heart
As we perfect this dying art.
My dreams fall into place,
Made real by the smile upon your face.
And as we dance,
Our minds filled with true romance,
I mirror your movements
As we step backwards and forwards
To the slow, steady rhythm inside our heads.
Love and LossIn these bright blue depthsLove and Loss4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Swimming with mystery
Memory upon memory
Rising to the surface
As I look into your eyes.
Deep in our history,
Each kiss bringing us closer
To the true definition of love.
Spiritual; our bodies and minds united
The morning light our only hindrance
The only shadow to our happiness.
But now as we stand face to face,
Our mutual presence
Sparking the same images to appear,
The same lines to be heard
In our pained minds
Old, forgotten words
Meaningless to others
But send us into a different world
A world devoid of happiness
A world filled with misery
Half of my heart aching in longing
Convincing my mind
That we were made for each other.
The other half crying out
Trying to be heard
Over the passion of the other.
Wary and cautious;
Urging me to step backwards
And seek out
What drew us apart
All those years ago.

I'm Sick Of Love Songs...I'm so sick of love songs,I'm Sick Of Love Songs...4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
They made me think that,
For some reason, you loved me too.
Sick of writing, every word I write,
Reminds me of you,
Don't you get it?
I'm fighting emotions,
I only wanted your heart,
The only compensation,
I guess it's just a game of Jenga to you.
Watch as my pieces fall,
Watch as my pieces fall.
Maybe love is an illusion to our eyes?
An illusion hidden inside,
You probably never wake up,
And think of me, right?
I'm sick of you.
As much as I'll miss you,
I want you to disappear.
Wish For A Better LifeYou talk for hoursWish For A Better Life4 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
About pointless droll
About someone's new boyfriend
And that new shopping mall
You think about books
You hold them with pride
You think about characters
Wishing you had their lives.
You listen to music
To drown out the sorrow
You sit there and wish
For a better tomorrow
You love to travel
But never find what you need
Not a place in the world
You feel you'd succeed
You'll never have roots
And you'll never know why
Until you finally know
You would never have a tie
You were hurt when you were young
You were hurt then real bad
And you don't know what's wrong
Don't know why you're mad
So you just keep moving
To place after palace
Keeping an arm's length
Between anyone's base
You don't think you want home
You don't think you want fame
You just want to be left
Left out in the rain

I still have hope.
When he is here

down the sidewalk.
We're so close,
our hips brush together.
Out of the corner of my eye,
I see you staring
and I start to blush.
Our arms are dangling at our sides,
and I can feel the electric
jump back and forth
between our fingers.
I will you to reach for my hand
and hold it tight.
I glance over at you again,
but this time
I can't take my eyes off of you;
You're so perfect.
I take a leap of faith
and intertwine my fingers with yours.
You begin to blush,
and I know that I want to be here
for the rest of my life.

No Longer a Little GirlDear imagination, can't you be the thing you wereNo Longer a Little Girl3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Butterflies and daffodils and happiness so pure
Sunny skies and lullabies and dreams of what could be
Hidden worlds and wonderlands of things they couldn't see
Shining gowns and silver crowns for dancing with the prince
Twirling with excitement, though the others weren't convinced
Dear intimidation, did you find it to be true
All I ever needed was an overdose of you
Silly stares and laughter slowly flood a child's mind
Making me abandon every daydream I could find
Lost beneath the shadows of the sky so dark and dead
Far too weak to turn around, yet scared of things ahead
Dear destructive tendencies, I feel it's time to hear
You were all I had when nothing else seemed to be near
Everything so out of reach, too far for me to see
I decided I would choose the needle next to me
Slicing through my very skin to feel something once more
Weeping through the satisfaction I could not ignore
Dear imagination, can't you be the thing you were?

Again and again.
Maybe I’m an emotional freak.
I cause fights and arguments
Maybe I’m a troublemaker.
I use make up to make myself seem
Maybe I’m girly.
I complain about things
Even when sometimes
Maybe I’m an attention seeker.
I fall under so many
So maybe I am a label.
I’m just me.
Smile For Me.When she smilesSmile For Me.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
her eyes flutter to the floor,
her lips slowly curl into a smile,
her cheeks turn light pink,
and her hand
falls softly over her mouth.
When she smiles
butterflies whirl through me,
she takes my breath away,
I can't take my eyes off of her,
and the whole room
stops to stare.
When she smiles
I want to run my hands through her hair,
hold her sides,
get lost in her baby blue eyes,
take her by her hand,
and kiss her oh so softly.
When she smiles, I smile.
EarthThere are now over 7 billion people on EarthEarth4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
For every 8 deaths there are 19 births
So many unique stories waiting to be told
So many lives waiting to unfold
But nowadays we are so busy
Everybody everywhere getting in a tizzy
That we do not stop to appreciate
Everything that makes our world so great
Around us are such wonders
From tropical birds to violent thunder
Yet we seem to have no sense of duty
To preserve it's natural beauty
So turn off your mobile phone
Leave your computer and the internet alone
And go outdoors and just take a minute
To look at the artistry so infinite
No matter during which season
You should always be able to find a reason
To take a look outside
And be filled with immeasurable pride.
Move onBack and forthMove on4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The thoughts in my head
From all the words you said
My hands shook
As I fought back emotion
My throat closed
My tears like an ocean
I flipped the switch
All my feelings suppressed
I tell myself
This is for the best
You walked on me
And left me in pieces
I was there for you
Yet you weren't there when I needed
I lived for you
And you took me for granted
I almost died for you
Yet all these lies you planted
Too many chances
You used them all twice
Despite how it hurts
I have to take my own advice
You're no good for me
You just hold me down
If I keep following you
I know you'll surely let me drown
I'm better off
Away from your cold grip
It feels harder to live
I'll make it
With me and me alone
My heart you no longer own
I Was So HappyIf you have not noticed,I Was So Happy4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I am not like other girls.
I do not pretend to love something,
Just because it is cool.
Unlike you, I did not pretend to be in love.
I guess that was why it hurt so much for me
And you were over me by the weekend.
I just want to know what happened.
What was going through your mind?
But let us be sensible,
I would never understand.
Maybe I am emotional.
Maybe I am naïve.
Maybe someday I will make up my mind
If I hate you or not,
But right now I just miss you.
I want you to wrap your arms around me again
And say it was all a cruel joke,
An experimental test.
I want to wake up with a message on my phone
Or read a note from you.
I miss the way you smile.
I miss the way you looked at me.
I miss the way you breathe.
It's like Boomer said,
When I was with you I was so happy.
JoyOne magical summer was all it tookJoy4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
For me to fall in love with you
I was no longer a closed book
I finally found someone I could talk to.
Picnics in the middle of the forest
Flowers in my hair
A thousand vows we promised
Never each other's happiness to impair.
We stand peering into the lake
My reflection always right next to yours
Nothing on Earth could ever break
Our eternal love on these shores.
The enchanting summer of 2012
The season that changed my life
With you into another world I would delve
A world completely absent of strife.
And now I confidently beside you stand
Beautifully adorned in my ivory dress
Our futures already planned
Our happiness and love only to progress.
A Piece Of YouI touch the strings of my guitar,A Piece Of You4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And they spiral inward,
Everything I touch seems to fall part.
Falling into darkness,
A depressive state,
This was my fate.
We started as perfect strangers,
Boys meets girl,
Or Girl meets boy.
A perfect sensation,
You drove me into fixation.
A goddess of a sort,
I guess that's what you were to me.
Yeah, I guess that's what you were to me.
That friend of yours,
He takes a sip of tea then whispers in your ear,
You smile and you whisper in his,
Singing a melody,
Sweet, like the summer days past,
You look at me, I look to you,
A cold stare, hasn't winter passed?
My heart shakes, until it breaks,
I put on a smile that looks fake,
And I put out my hand,
Reaching out to grab a piece of you,
You, a piece of history,
You, with a sweet melody,
I sleep breathlessly,
I turn blue; I'm holding my breath for you.
My mind in a maze,
I can't put together those days.
I pass you by, without a thing to say.
We're still young, and it's silly to be thinking like this.
FatePending choices, which one is right?Fate4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Can I make the right choice tonight?
Only one direction will take me to my destination
Only one path will lead to salvation
Is freedom worth fighting for, If it means I'm in chains?
Is my future worth living for, if I have all this pain?
Uncertainty presses heavy on my chest
With all this anxiety my thoughts never rest
If only I had answers to this burning question
If only I had an arrow, pointing to the right direction
My life is balancing on the tip of my tongue
One wrong word and I can't turn and run
I'm running out of time, I have to make this choice
But I can't think clearly with all of this noise
It's time to close my eyes, let my heart decide
If this decides my very fate- I'd rather chose it blind
