The White Morgue
Watching, my eyes saw the swaying limbs
thin and starved by winter winds...
Dancing, like moving cracks on the window,
Through which I did stare.
Imagine, the image so morbid above as I gazed.
unnerving to the anchoring blood,
drying up within the veins of my limbs,
much like the branches that sliced the air...
The roots dug deep into my back,
and the anchored blood began to freeze...
My vessels, destroyed by glaciers,
of icy blood, that once flowed.
The travesty, of the bullet plunged into my heart,
whose beat slows, and withers and fades.
Too and so soon, the loss of my life...
Now I play the game of patience...
3. The Spider Amidst the Structure3. The Spider Amidst the Structure2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Nightfall arrive, accompanied by a darkness, serene.
Silence became all sound surrounding.
Many creatures around me came,
Abounding & astounding to my presence.
Before me stood a massive structure of oak,
Colossal, I envied not, the earth carrying its weight.
Three crosses stood, like giants amongst the trees,
Reaching out beneath and to the moon above.
Attaching them was the seal of the Triune of my Lord,
facing both the Heavens and the Earth.
In its core was a web,
Made fresh by a translucent arachnid.
The flesh of its figure, the spider, was given such life
By the pale gaze of the moon.
Its legs stretched wide, and in the light,
Were but a dwarfed allusion to lightning.
We watched, the creatures and I,
with the inspired awe of the sight before us all.
Back over my shoulder did my eyes glance,
To find at a distance a storm forging itself to life, by thunder and lightning.
From Heaven, bellowed the astonishing sound of a horn,
As the opening line of the first act o

TormentTorment2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm all by my self
Don't need anyone else
I have my moments
In lying in my torments
All I ask is "Everyone
Please fill my empty pockets"
And as my hand reaches in
It's as empty as my eye sockets
They stare on through
And I don't know why I do this
I spread myself like glue
Tormenting myself, and others
So much happiness
I deny with a smile
Because I know I'll fall
Because I don't believe you at all
All I ask is "Everyone
Please fill my empty pockets"
But as my hand reaches in
It's as empty as my eye sockets
So much words to define
So much meaning to rhyme
And I don't ask for even a dime
But still no one will give me the time
But my walls block my view
And I wonder, when's my soul due?
Can't Hold OnIf everything else falls away,Can't Hold On4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
hold on to what you know.
Hold on to strength,
hold on to love.
Hold on to lies,
if need be.
But if all else fails,
watch the sunset over the sea.
Know that every one can see it,
people near and far.
Hope will always be around,
doesn't matter where you are.
Watcher of the NightHe waits in the shadowsWatcher of the Night3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Watching and learning
Trying to resist
His unconquerable yearning
An actor of rare disguise
Covering half-truths with unfinished lies
His plans twist and turn
Taking years for fruition
After which he disappears
A forgotten apparition
While lesser men succumb
To the beckoning temptation
He stands regardless
Steadfast by his station
Vigil of the darkness
Watcher of the night
Countless men have tried
To evade his inhuman sight
He is the sum of his fears
For he chooses what he wants to be
He has uncertainties, he has doubts
But is afraid intentionally
He tends the shades of the mighty
And the shadows of the weak
Stifling their deceit
And plugging up the leaks
He watches and learns
Trying to fit in
But he'll soon realize
It's a battle he can't win
The cycle repeats
However hard he fights
But his fate is sealed
As Watcher of the Night
The Forward MovementThe Forward Movement2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Tragedy, abrupt to my very soul,
that left me far from whole.
The withered memory born unto my dreams again,
refreshed and once more binding me by chain.
The reopening scars I once upon a time, thought healed,
gape wide to open for the flood gates, red and revealed.
My witnessing eyes bleed out old tears from a rusted well,
Attempting again to put back out the fires of this age old Hell.
The rising waters find my feet and climb,
the two floods meet, where their cause is rhymed.
My heart from which the blood and tears flow,
now at where the pain does ever grow.
Close these outpouring wounds, build back up the walls...
Make for my feet, the forward movement from where my future calls.
Once again I will shed my skin,
leaving behind the marks of where I've been.

just follow me.
Maybe then you'll see,
there's nothing left of me.
Soul ripped to shreds,
heart broken to pieces.
If you want to hear lies,
listen to this song.
Maybe someday you'll see,
you don't want to sing along.
Music brought together,
lyrics torn apart.
Hope one day,
will rescue me.
Pray to God,
though I don't believe.
I don't understand,
There's nothing left.
So, if you ever feel like getting lost,
just follow me.
Secrets of the DjinnLo the winds howl "Never you roam the mist"Secrets of the Djinn3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Wander you far across lands, forest & desert sea
Or dream you deep in a cloudless sky ...
Yet a presence looms & beckons, spirits unseen
For they are the Djinn, silent and ever watching,
embalmed into seasons of mortal blood-flow
And beware, for I shalt not speak of this again,
lest darkness unto thy flesh they quest and sow
Eons adrift in smokeless fire did they slumber...
Befallen to Earth's domain, they undressed fate
The Djinn, ancient dwellers humans would fear
Betwixt worlds they linger, shimmering in fire
Thru parallel dimensions they reach, seducing
dreams and reality, life... You!
Peering eyes thru the veil of time and space;
shape shifters of any form, stalk and hunt
Thoughts & flesh canst not escape their magick
Besieged and shadowed, the human race
til they are sent back to whence they came
And death became a wanton treasure,
where Angels pillage & Demons lust in flame
"You should never have come human"
THROUGH SOMEONE ELSES EYE p2His body was cold, I could feel it as I rested my forehead on his shoulder. Why was I letting myself get so close to him and why was he accepting it so willingly knowing perfectly well that I wanted to sleep with him from day one? I realised then that I couldnt understand Laken very well. As soon as that thought hit the conscious part of my brain, it didnt take a lot for me to notice that I couldnt understand anyone around me. I question their reasons, I doubt their feelings and take advantage of them before they can do it to me.THROUGH SOMEONE ELSES EYE p26 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
My thoughts last until his cold delicate fingers touched my cheek, stroking me like I was a hurt kitten, so innocent and caring it almost made me feel dirty for feeling aroused. I didnt know if Laken was aware of the dangerous game he was playing. It was difficult enough to hold back when he was sitting across the room, and now he was touching me, letting his scent intoxicate me.
Like a blackhole, I could sense emptiness grow
One last goodbye-The Iris seriI feel your body in my armsOne last goodbye-The Iris seri6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
so small and fragile
Nuzzling into my chest
breathing shallow deep breaths
You then look up into my eyes
and whisper the words I love you
A tear falls from my eye
and I repeat the same
I then squeeze you tight
hoping to never let go
combing my hand through your hair
I feel you cry
But alas it has to happen
I let go and look into your face on more last time
Tears stream down your cheeks
accentuating your hazel eyes
You look down as if your gonna collapse
knees wobble, but you stay up
Once again you lift your head to look into my eyes
and whisper, one more final time
I love you...........

Tell me that you need me,
Make me feel like I'm wanted.
I'm tired of feeling empty,
Somebody, give me something.
Someone, make my heart beat,
& Make me feel like I'm on fire when you kiss me,
Don't let me be able to forget you.
I want someone to unlock my heart,
I'm sick of not being able to let anyone in,
I want to fall in love again.
I'm so sick of this,
I need to feel something,
I haven't felt in love in so long.
I promise, every time I smile and say, "I love you, baby" it's a lie.
'Cause darling, I'm incapable of that kind of love.

But it's not all a lie,

slowly and peacefully lulling me to sleep
but no matter how hard i wish
stars can't make it come true

Coils in the air like a snake,
Grasping at the sky pulsating
Grayish color in its wake.
Tall buildings suffocating
Uniformed workers in search for
The nearest subway train,
Emotion stuffed amidst bodies rushing.
Beady eyes scan surrounding terrain,
Sweat rolls down open pores,
Warm breath stains cool air
As bodies litter the sidewalk stains.
Sly glances shared reveal the wear
The metal tombs have exacted
On the soul of the unwilling,
How will they offer any care?
Metal compresses against metal,
Love and hate are merged in one,
Dark smoke coils in the air
Blotting out the unseen city.

When I got back from the gallery, the house was empty. Its stressful, spending all day wearing a mask and telling myself I must smile and I must be articulated or even that I must keep the reputation I built up over the years. All these musts drain me in ways I couldnt be able to express in words, but if I had to I would say it feels like a needle, puncturing the same sore spot, over and over again, digging deeper as time passes by. Lani says I must get used to it, but I cant and probably never will. My reward is the probability of having someone to fuck at the end of all the torture, but sometimes, actually most of the time, I ask myself if its really me whos gaining something.
A couple of hours later, Laken arrived. I was surprised he was even out. Usually hes in, only going out for photographs, but it was a rainy day and I didnt think he would take Jacqueline in those conditions. Its hard to accept the fact that I re

The Shades Of My Eyes
Treading along a path of healing
Within an aura of rejuvenation
Restore the strongest force of life
Renew these weakening limits of mine
Devotion has no means to an end
There is only hope and strength to be lent
Just like the void called the sky
Even the clouds don't hinder sight
A storm could be brewing
And lightning could be striking
But there is no fear dwelling
Only a calm, tranquil feeling
A rarity itself
An enigma that stands out
A peace that transcends
An energy that ascends
A strong person who is still only human
An outcome of living within the moment
Like a stunning sunrise
Shunning out an ominous evening night
Piercing through that unending blanket of darkness
To see the light of day again, it tells me that I've made it
The sun rays hit and land
And starts to melt the doubt from my hands
The will to endure
The wisdom to acquire
There are no word

Kyra was aware that she was considered nothing more than a pet for the humans back on Earth, but she had never imagined that she would be sent away from Earth for a year.
Her owner was sick and tired of her behavior and said that that would be sent to spend some time on asteroid for an entire year. It seemed like a punishment but Jason had explained that another 'convict' would be there and that hopefully he would 'knock some sense into her' because apparently she was in desperate need of discipline.
"You don't appreciate how good you have it," Jason had said to her, snapping her collar around her tiny neck. "I think that this will be a good thing for you," he tried with her, keeping his voice surprisingly soft. It was only hours ago that this same voice was screaming at her so loudly that she had to cover her ears. "I'm sending you here not only as a punishment, but as an opportunity.

Eyes upon the future, a new year, will love reign?
