RaindropLoving youRaindrop5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is like falling in love
With a raindrop
When you really think about it,
We are all just little drops of rain,
Falling to earth only to die
Once we reach the bottom.
Hitting the cold black pavement,
Bitter and torn, as we scatter;
Pitter-patter along the ground.
What kind of life
Does a raindrop have
On it's long fall to Earth?
It can never be replaced,
Once it hits the pavement
That one tiny drop is gone,
Erased from existence forever
Until it evaporates
Going back to the sky,
To dwell in the clouds
Until it is born anew.
What is the true value,
Of a simple person,
One insignificant life ?
All of us fall from the sky,
And must one day face
The truth that lies in death.
There is such beauty
And such sadness in all of this,
Searching for a deeper meaning.
Is like falling in love
A thousand times every day
Ink ShadowDrowning down with the shallow ones,Ink Shadow7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
They have this... darkness... surrounding them;
It gnaws away at their own mind.
No, it drowns their psyche,
Pulling it beneath the silver lined waves;
Coating it in inken armor...
In a vain effort to protect themselves.
These creatures have no reflection;
Resemblant of demons and their ilk,
Unable to look within and battle their own demons,
The dark ink pools to form a mirror...
The demonic creature can never look into it,
They're too afraid of their own shadow;
And that is what they've become...
A shade; A simple hue...
A shadow that follows others around, seeking the light that is within them...
Because they look at them, and just think,
'Anything is better than the darkness... The cold, cruel eternal night...'
Their jealousy is eating them alive.
It plagues their souls, shadowing, as shadows do,
Always following those they crave...
As an ink shadow, like a leech;
A vampire draining the life out of them,
DreadIt's that same dreadful look in your eyeDread4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You asked me once, but now I know why
Your poison is so much more than I can take;
Have to hide deep inside or I will finally break.
Shadows combing across my face
In the end, I have only been a disgrace.
Rushing, running away from all these thoughts,
Weaving your black web round me in knots.
You are a slow creeping death, just like the spider
Labyrinthine heart, my eyes close even wider.
To find a way out, I'll never break this spell;
There is no longer an escape from inside my hell.
The words, built like a fire, constantly consume me.
You are the only one who can, but will never set me free
That's because there are no words here;
Thanks to you, everything's become crystal clear.
I think of your face, and it fills my heart with dread
Deep within my heart, dwelling inside my head
Such horrible miseries leak into my dreams,
You're the worst of all; you can't hear my screams
Real and NotWhere will I go now?Real and Not5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
What will I do?
I'll just drift away
Into another world,
This realm is
Not like yours
I like it here
I am amongst friends
Who won't backstab
Or call people names,
Make me feel so betrayed
You say they aren't real
But they said you aren't,
And I have to agree
A 'real' friend
Would never hurt me,
Which could only mean
You aren't real either.
That's what life is,
And hurting each other,
And if it is
I'd rather be dead.
Wish ListWho was it that ever madeWish List4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The very first wish ?
Longing feeling to have
Something they did not ?
It continues to elude me.
Each moment that passes us by
Is another moment lost,
For it is another moment
I am without you
For so long I have burned
Sinning in my own personal hell,
Only to be saved by you
One day an angel took my arm
And He refused to let it go.
That was when I knew
He would be mine. <3
If now is not to be the Time,
Then so it may be.
If I had a heart full of wishes,
I'd waste every single one
And once I made a list
That I truly wished for
The only thing on the list
Was a name
It was His.
Nothing else in all the world
That I could want
Would ever make me happy
I'll never ask for anything else.
Golden AfternoonI long to go back to the daysGolden Afternoon2 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When all was not stained these muted grays,
But shaded hues of golden afternoon;
I feel like everything ended too soon...
Wishing I could return to the place
Where you always had a smiling face,
With fallen leaves stuck in our hair,
And dirt that seemed to cling everywhere...
Leaving trails through the empty forest wood,
Racing to catch up, if only I could...
Lost out in the middle of nowhere,
When my heart is gone, you can find it there...
Everything was shiny and gold,
Never thinking that we would grow old,
I'd take a nap and dream of bees,
Lurking there, safari through the trees...
The jungle cat would lie in the shade,
Watching, as my dreams slowly fade...
This place only exists within my memory,
Yet no one can wake me from this reverie...
It's my sacred secret place,
Where I vanish, without a trace...

Closing in all around me,
It is clinging
Midnight colored drones,
They haunt me;
In this place
Where fallen dreams decay,
And stars have no place
In the night sky
The moon follows us
Through the trees,
Into your soul
Beneath all of the chains.
Dig into my feet,
Baring my soul
To your cannibal gaze.
Cast OutI will forever be known asCast Out4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The girl with the poisoned heart
No one could touch me
Surrounded by an invisible maze of thorns,
Unreachable, untouchable, undesirable.
And you are made of poison
Deadly, killing me
Weeding you out from my garden
You're not welcome in this Eden,
Cursed with the pain
Of a thousand eyes
Yet why is it none of them can see
All the things you do to me?
Moonlit promises only turn
Into halogen lies,
No such thing as safety
Your eyes burning away at my soul,
Where only darkness goes,
There is a hatred that festers and grows.
In a scream-filled fantasy cosmos,
You are dead to me.
This monster that you made me
Tried so hard to make you see
You are a lost soul,
Who can never be complete.

Show me nothing except
This hollow feeling;
I just wanted it to go away
And the way you held me
I was lost in heaven
Until the moment when I was blind,
Bitten by a demon
So smoky and smooth,
You can't make me purr.
Piercing emerald depths with your gaze,
False and untrue.
And it hurt so much
The hatred has now arisen,
And will forever be repaid unto me
With your blood.
Like a fallen swan
I will never speak again,
I will smile, instead.
Grinning as I lick my paws
Clean from crimson,
Bathing in my rage
As I am basking now
Reveling in the joy of your plague.
You couldn't keep me
Locked inside the cage forever,
Now could you?
How could you?
Eve's AppleI thought you would save meEve's Apple5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But I could never be the one
To save myself
Or find a way to help you
I hope you never forget this
Just like I can never forget,
In a way it's not fair.
So unsure of myself,
My feelings that are not even real
As I bleed my fake blood
Pouring into puddles of nothing.
Like a broken doll,
Discarded piece of trash
I stare out through cold glass eyes
Once, I thought you'd save me
We are all rotting
In our own personal hell,
Each of them unique.
That is what I am
And I don't even care.
No more magic here
Only death that lies in sleep,
Just out of reach
The apple that fell
From the tree
That wasn't even there.
Rotten and green and bitter,
Cold and crisp like your heart,
And that's all I'll ever be
Cursed as your sin.
DismalA dismal abyssDismal5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Blood-curdling screams so shrill,
They cry out in the night
Longing for anyone at all
Who might be able to hear them.
Come set me free
You want to save me from it
Yet unwilling to go out of your way,
So strip me bare
Right down to the bone.
Just like you
Beneath the underneath
There is nothing there,
It's all just barren
So desolate and empty
I am just a shell
An empty kind of numbness,
As I am falling farther,
Away from this reality
You could never compete with a dream.
Keep dreaming of me
Taking all of it away,
I feel so guilty,
And all I want to do
Is sleep forever.
It's a feeling much like drowning,
Giant waves come to bury me,
Being constantly pulled under;
I need someone to pull me out
But there is no one.
Going HomeA painful reminder ofGoing Home4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
All the bittersweet memories
Lost within a labyrinthine heart,
You're so far gone, I can never see you again.
And good riddance.
To the bitter, to the lonely and the sacred
I am afraid of you
The music and the words and the art
All of these understand me,
I can relate and so I mirror
Understanding in relation
To all of the pain I feel.
Misery loves company,
But pain is best when left alone.
Completely alone, as I am;
And as I always shall be.
This undying beast
Can never truly be killed.
Not with your blood, or anyone else's
Flesh peeled right off the corpse
As it's made me it's home.
I HideAll that I am and all that I doI Hide4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is riddled with pure destruction,
Laced with toxic cyanide;
Never to be touched by mortal hands.
Can you buy a simple soul from me?
No, what I know is not for sale,
And even in your dreams
You could never see anything so pure.
Always saying things like
No, never, broken, so damaged;
Eternal, forever, always, so permanent,
And nothing can ever repair it.
You've stolen such things from me
That cannot be spoken of,
And yet I still must go on knowing
The true source of all this despair
My entire world is dying all around me,
And all I can do is watch the embers burn;
White hot, like the deadly pure magic
Which I am no longer to use.
Addicted to you and all of your charm
Not because of who you are
Or because you treat me well,
But because you cause me pain.
I've always been in love with pain,
Ashen cinders burning to a black death
Always wanting, but never feeling more;
At least I can feel you now
You're the only one in all the world
Who has the p

And you were once lost to me...
Though I'd searched, the place was never right
Timing was off just by a few minutes,
Moments slip like grains of sand
Falling down the hourglass of my heart...
From the moment I first saw you,
I know it sounds much too bold
But I knew you'd follow me home
From there, knew one day you'd be mine
To have and to hold,
Someone who compliments me perfectly,
Going hand in hand with my own ways
And so flawlessly intuned with my soul...
For so long I had wondered
Why there was so much darkness within me,
Why I was surrounded by it
Why it consumed me so completely...
But most of all, I wondered why...
It felt like I was missing half of myself,
Like I was incomplete
And without you, I am.
Without you, there can only be dark
There is no light,
And I know it's cliche' but...
You will always be my light
Even in all of this darkness.

I hear the wolves as they echo through
Darkest hour of the brightest light of night,
Nothing could ever be as dark as you
And what you are to me
What are you to me?
I merely blinked,
As I was eaten alive
Consumed by your hatred
And bled out of such rage.
I've only a single word for you:
Run as far from me,
And as fast as you can;
Else I should catch you
And devour all that is
A thousand ways to fight this feeling,
I shouldn't feel it.
I've never felt that I was human
Surely I must be a monster,
Fighting this monstrous voice inside,
The sound of instinct;
What the hell am I?
I catch your scent on the wind
And know only one thing:
That I must go to you.
Clawing my way past,
Nothing will stand in my way.

Is a thing so hollow
Not even time can fathom
The end to it's fathomless depths
Just like the hole in your heart.
No one wants a broken toy,
That is all that I can ever be
Shameful to burden society
With my petty useless nonsense.
Your eyes betray
So much more than you allow them,
And you are so much more
Than you give yourself credit for.
Haunting melody that calls to me in silence,
As we're gazing at the stars together
Everything goes by,
And we're counting all the scars
One by one
And the hidden meaning behind
The look in your eyes
Says it all.
AwkwardEverything is so awkward for meAwkward5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's not normal to feel this way,
Cast out and so alienated,
Cut off from everyone and everything,
Just because I'm different.
It's true you know,
I'm not the same as you.
Wish I could find
All the things I'm missing,
I'm not even a person anymore,
And it's definitely not the same.
Instead I swallow it up
Keeping it all to myself,
I just want to hide
Away from the world
Destroy myself completely,
Be invisible to you.
I don't feel right
Being told who I am,
Why have an identity at all
If it's going to be forced?
In this reality,
I can only be a puppet
Ignored by everyone,
Kicked around when I am down
Left alone to endure the pain,
Used and abused by all.
I hate this world I live in
Because living here
Is not living

So bitter on my tongue
It tastes like bile,
Saccharin ash in my mouth
Evil kisses made of morphine
Numb you straight to your core,
Sweet euphoric acid
Like a poison candy mist
As it sweeps across my eyes
Crimson wine swimming in my veins
Putrid arrows pierce my heart
Rotten and bitter,
Decayed just like love
Just a thought,
It's only a glitch
Someday I'll break away
I've no heart left
In this dying body of mine.
It's far too dark
There isn't any light left
If it was, I could not see
Just like I cannot feel.
Raking across my skin
I bleed into eternal blackness,
Isolated from reality
It's far worse than any dream;
Yet I'm still dreaming of you
And you are made of poison
Deadly, killing me
So icy is your touch
I've forgotten how to feel.

And they've got malice in their eyes,
Wanton coming on
Like forbidden decadent chocolate again.
For all the lands that have been stolen
As each of the meadowlarks decide to sing,
This was not meant to be a forever song.
Cast from the fires that burn throughout the abyss,
It is our greatest challenge;
Overcoming the white maiden martyr
She comes to us each night and cries,
Reaching out for the one that her heart still longs for...
And it covers me in coveted waves of silk,
Etched from such tears...
His crystalline presence blanketing the earth,
Sewing his seeds of sorrow and hate...
But they were not the ones to blame.
You've no one but yourself left,
Hiding emotion inside this cruel November...
It is a place of enormous sadness.
Like daisies, in the storm.
