just another ride home.One headlight's outjust another ride home.7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
On this car I'm driving
It's getting dark
And my other will go out soon
Need to find shelter
From this storm coming so fast
The sky darkens
As I pull over to the side of the road
Rain comes first
In showers then torrents
I can see my breath inside my car
My heaters dying
All I want
Is to be safe and warm
With you by my side
My car is dying by the cold
And I'm the only one on the road
Any second now it'll snow
My cell phone doesn't have service
And there are no other lights on the road
I guess you knew that my car would die
Because you were there within five minutes
Asking if I needed a ride home
With that sarcastic little tone
And a smile I couldn't resist
The BeginningThe BeginningThe Beginning7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Oh, how I long for it all to begin again,
To the times when we were fresh and new.
To The Beginning
Where every moment was accounted for,
And every brief touch was a spark of fire.
Where two pairs of eyes,
Found each other with no trouble.
When a kiss,
Was more than a goodbye, or a signal for something more.
When laughter was beautiful,
And to mock the one you loved for feeling,
Was never even thought of.
When I love you,
Was the only way to get everything out.
When talking was listening,
And listening didnt include talking.
When secret smiles were passed,
And thoughts filled with longing followed.
When a slight wind brought their scent to you,
And you all you could do was smile.
When seeing the other,
You could feel a weight being lifted off your heart.
How beautiful it all was
I would give anything to have it all back again.
My inflicted torture - ThoughtWould it kill the world to have respect for what I feel?My inflicted torture - Thought8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Does it seriously need to degrade me and manifest in my sorrow?
Why am I afraid of expressing myself all of a sudden?
Maybe because everytime I show emotion it gets chewed up and spat out like mud,
Drying in the air of silence and then getting blown away.
Father would you listen to me speak,
Mother I'm sorry I've only caused you grief,
Many sleepless nights you've sat in wonder
Where will my baby be?
Lost in raging thunder,
Sunk beneath a cloud of summer.
Not every word that comes out of my mouth is meant,
But not every thing I say is dishonest either.
Could it be that the world is hearing my screams but I am deaf to my own voice?
Drown out and caught in an undertow.
Sister hear my plea's,
Brother sing a sad song to the bee's,
Tell them of their bittersweet demise,
Nature's wonder is squished between thugoid thighs.

Since life is so bittersweet,
Eventually the fun must END.
The laughter must STOP,
And the longing SHOULD come to a close.
Desire SHOULD part ways with romance,
And those meaningful glances,
MUST avert its gaze the other way.
Young love HAS drowns itself,
And old age is SUPPOSED creeps away,
Leaving Death with Its finale.
The memories NEED to leave,
My heart CAN NOT take this…
I can FEEL…
And it SCARES me…
To feel this so MUCH…
I can WANT…
And I NEED to feel…to feel WANT…
I can't CHANGE
I can't make my heart GIVE UP…
With this bittersweet TASTE it's gotten used to…
It hurts so much…
To FEEL this overwhelming…
How long will it be?
How much painstaking time will it take?
When will it be over?
WHEN I CAN FINALLY BREATHE,
OF THOSE BITTERSWEET MEMORIES,
OF THOSE BITTERSWEET EMOTIONS?
WHEN WILL THIS BITTERSWEET PAIN FINALLY END?
Morals and the TimesPretty words,Morals and the Times8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Can no longer keep the beast at bay.
Sleeping with angels,
Is no longer a thing to be done.
Wishes and dreams,
Are a wistful child's plaything.
Beauty is to be bought,
And kindness, a sight for sore eyes.
Wisdom is now a pawn,
And the virtuous are now to be mocked.
Fantasy has lost her touch,
And someone has stolen Death's intimidation.
The Sinners have all blended,
And the pious, now a minority.
Is a thing of the past.
Can be found from a machine.
Is rare to be found…
But it's still the precious and celebrated jewel it always was.
Life is changing,
This I see…
But isn't it remotely possible,
To keep the moral values we all used to know?

That this is my last message to them.
That they know I cared,
And that in the afterlife,
I will continue.
Love them, I did.
And struggled with the power,
Of feelings so strong,
That I was overcome by emotions so full of strength,
It brought me to my knees.
That Love gave me a purpose;
A reason to continue forward.
That I love them,
And I always will,
Even in the eternal afterlife,
Where all is blissful and still,
And my heart can rest.
Let my love know,
That I am saving a place for them,
Just like I always have,
Just like I always will.
Let my love know, gracious messenger,
That Death and Its angels call for me,
With a sweet and promising melody,
That I go willingly.
To save a place for my love.

If I cut you with broken glass,
I will see blood fall to the floor.
But regardless of what you seem to be,
I still see right through you.

Behind my shadow.
It can be my defender,
My knight in shining armor,
Which I can never seem to find.
If I can't remember to love this life,
Will it walk over me?
Will it replace all I used to know?
My being that has more power than I will ever imagine.
The only thing I believe in.
The only thing I've ever loved.
But it will it ever conquer,
The demons I can only see,
The dreams that always haunt me,
The dreams that always come back and taunt me?
The decay of my life,
Will only be noticed by one,
The shadow that used to be me.

The moment being gone,
But their meanings echo on, until the end of it all.
Weak hearts leave everything behind,
The stronger ones stay,
To bear all the suffering.
Immortal love starts to fade,
As new love stirs within.
The dark begins to lose its shadow,
While the light wanes.
Death holds hands with the living,
While mothers praise their newborn children.
Time will always spin on its axle,
While seemingly standing still.
And Life goes on just as it always will.

That I can feel Its light.
It's ever enclosing presence,
Its lost dreams,
Its meaningful closure,
That I will never forget.
Nothing left to do,
The friend I met,
The help I received,
The understanding companions,
That I will always hold dear.
Closing it all up,
And locking all the memories,
In a place only I can reach.
So sad it is to leave,
This wonderful place;
This pleasurable haven.
Never will I surrender,
Those precious moments,
That I shall forever hold in my heart.
Goodbye my friends,
Farewell to my mentors,
And thank you,
To all who helped me,
On this amazing journey,
That I will keep alive,
Until my dying day.

And little bits of joy spread through my heart.

And I know that I have been redeemed.
Worthy of the light shining down upon me.
Finally giving in,
And forgiving me.
The only thing keeping me alive.

I am a GirlI let out a cry,I am a Girl1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As you shove me into a wall,
Of the darkened hall,
I slid down to a sitting position,
As you worsen my condition,
My eyes blurred by tears,
But you can't seem to hear.
I am a girl,
You should treat me fair,
Instead of yelling and hitting,
And pulling out my hair.
Leaving me crying,
In the dark,
You start to breaking and throwing,
Things that are sharp,
Glass start to fly,
I hope it gets into your eye,
But instead it hits me in the thigh.
I am a girl,
You should treat me fair,
Instead of yelling and hitting,
And pulling out my hair.
Police arrives at the door,
And they pin you to the floor,
They take me to a home,
Where I'm kept safe and warm,
They tell me your in hell,
And as I'm going to a nice family,
You'll die in a cell.
I am a girl,
Who is being treated fair,
No more yelling or hitting,
or pulling out my hair.

To entertain was my fairest talent,
But too roughly they did quake,
For although one might find joy in another's pleasure,
Expectation is the root of all heartache

You said "don't go; don't love me
and leave me" and pulled me close
and my insides were like melting caramel
and I stayed.
I expect nothing of you now;
admit only in the pining early hours that I
want need crave
you still -
my vivid dreams remind me why oh why it is you
and only you that haunts me.
And when I hear your voice,
your foreign accent familiar as home,
calling me back across the years in dreams
I do not wish for freedom but to step through time

I love the way you walk.
I love the curve of your lips when you laugh,
I love the way you talk.
Your hair is an ever-changing fashion,
You wear it along with your pride,
I notice every time you cut it,
And how it sways along with your stride.
I laugh at all of your status updates,
Even when they don't make sense.
I like the music you like,
To me, you've never caused an offense.
Your eyes are the muse of my daydreams,
Your charm an elegant gift.
More often than not I am aware
That I've found myself adrift
Adrift in the past of our encounters,
Pondering what I could've said,
Wondering what I should've confessed,
Thinking of all I could've done
I'll admit it;

The door to my simple cage swings open and I roll forward impatiently. I am eager to see who I must serve this time. My own shape changes as I move. I feel nothing, for I am wood and rope and cheap, tinny metal, but I know I now mirror the girl stood before me. She is concealing her amazement. She studies me as intently as I study her. Brown hair, flushed skin, blue eyes. She looks artificial.
I listen as the valet offers an explanation I've have heard many times before. I am a simulacrum a likeness, a copy. I wonder if this girl knows that I was once like her.
I have no choice in the way my arms lift to brush the girl's face with powder. She splutters and blinks through the pink haze towards the mirror that my wooden limbs offer her. Her eyes grow wide; I know not what she sees.
I keep patting on powder, even after the valet has bound
The Galaxy is SnickeringI went to Wal-Mart onThe Galaxy is Snickering1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The first day of spring
And bought a gallon of life,
A few packages of hope,
And got a shot of soul for free.
My backpack weighed down
By my groceries and empty wallet,
I returned to my cabin situated
In the far reaches of the universe,
Where bears were constellations
And birds chased the stars.
Perhaps because of fate
Or love or life or hate or death,
I forgot my key and had to
Set down my backpack
Full of life and hope and soul
In order to search my pocket for
My meaning of life.
And in that time, reality snuck up
Behind me and stole my pack,
Filled with all that I need,
From under my nose.
