Exit ribcageI could watch the stars die with you,Exit ribcage9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
watching, counting every celestial breath.
One by one they go,
running from the sun.
Their death, beautiful,
an increase of the darkest hue.
Although they are far,
still I feel their prescense.
They are in your eyes,
shining brighter than before.
Celestial lambency, ocularly contained,
the longing to escape from behind white glass.
From the grave above, to eyes below,
a galaxy contained in a gaze.
A black hole smile,
with convincing sincerity.
The moon now suspends,
alone in the blackened skies.
For every star that died,
now shines brightly in your eyes.

I am the one who spreads Pain and Suffering,
I see joy,
Where others just see suffering.
This sadist loves to see your pain,
Giggling at your misery,
Laughing at your pain.
I'll be creative in my destruction,
I'll be sure you don't know whats going to come next,
I'll be your demise;
I'll hold your head,
As I slice your neck,
Drinking the blood that poors out.
Oh, how it amuses me to see your pain,
As I watch you squirm under my knife,
Oh, to see you twitch as I draw the knife against your skin,
And as I laugh manically.

Crimson is the sole of the rose
The blood spilt from the path she chose
Blue is the turning of the time
The beat that matches both rhythm and rhyme
Grey is the one with a heart of stone
Reaching to make life all her own
I sit from the brim of the moon in the sky
Watching each mortal struggle a path until they die
Black is the mortal that lived in despair
Waiting and cursing and tainting with care
Purple is the demon with no way out
A misunderstood life they toss all about
White is the innocent child at hand
Afraid of no being from any the land
I sit in the darkness away from the day
And wait to devour each one as my prey

But I am intact
You thought my heart shattered
But it's only been cracked
You thought I had fallen
But I am still standing
You thought I was shrinking
But I am expanding
You thought you had trapped me
But I am still free
You thought I lost myself
But I am still me
You thought I was weak
But I'm actually strong
You thought that you knew me
But you were dead wrong

A voice calls
and I step down from my throne
upon the crest of this hill
away from my friends
(the trees, the long grass and the tulips)
back through the mirror
into the mundane world
of neatly rowed desks
and obedient children
not a hair out of place
nor a single unauthorized whisper
and they wonder why,
when they call my name
I am not here

you wore that staged, enticing
smile so easily, a child
born of cold lust -
birthed beneath ill signs,
under unfamiliar stars.
predictably, being first
you never had a chance,
your unique gifts cursed
a little too bold and chancy
for our conservative times.
your wanton lips were turned up
at the edges so seductively,
only allowed to appear to us
from under the surface,
beneath that glassy plane,
waiting patiently for us
to slowly sink, and slink in
to your regular nighttime show -
four rows from the front,
and never quite close enough

Float far, far away from your care,
And wrap yourself up without hurry,
Leave the evenings bare.
Float far, far away from your stress,
Float far, far away from your pain,
And let in anything that can give it's best,
Put your head to peaceful rest.
Float far, far away from Monday's,
Float far far away from the work,
And relish in the weekends controlled mess,
Lay down your sadness to rest.
Float far, far away from confusion,
Float far, far away from your anger,
And surround yourself in happy jest,
Lay everything you see wrong down to rest.

Lies on the lips of a king.
Peasents blindfolded, don't see anything.
A vocal prophet, heralding truth.
Freeing the minds of corrupted youth.
Begin to question, your reality.
Never lose sight of your individuality .
Fight, never content to lay down and die.
You can't quit untill you try.
Chose, between fight or flight.
No-one will die in vain this night.
A new world order, a king overthrown.
Time for a free man to take the thrown.
The slaves freed, the wrong made right.
Winning our freedom by way of our might.

Aleksander the Bold
Beast of power, born of flame,
Through the centuries earning fame.
Known the world over for my power,
Only growing wiser by the hour.
Above mortal desires for power and wealth,
Living forever, untouched by time, immortal health.
My home, high in the mountains, away from mortals.
Flying far for those tasty morcels.
I've lived a million years,
Unlocked a million secrets.
I've seen all the world,
And live with no regrets.

Thunder crashed around her; lightning lit up the sky and pavement around her; rain pounded the pavement and pooled around her hands; the wind blew her hair this way and that; her necklace heavy from the condensation on it. She could feel the energy in the air around her; it flowed through her and gave her energy. She always felt better during storms; all the raw energy; the wildness of it all; the sheer destructive power; the life that it brought; the fear it inspired in lesser people; the awe it inspired in the enlightened; for centuries man has tried to harness it's power, and for centuries we have failed. She felt clean in the rain, as if

Some days, I just think life isn't fair.
Really, I just want to know who really cares.
But, I really don't have time to stop and stare.
I'll just sit down and write another verse,
do it, for better or worse.
Wether I'm last or first,
or gifted or cursed.
Cause there are days I don't even wanna get up and rhyme.
Other days, it feels like this world in mine
I'll scoop it up, it's mine for the taking.

I can't hold it together any longer.
This weight is far too much for me..,
I plea someone please take it from me.
Anyone.. please accept my plea
Its dragging me down..
This heavy weight, this burden I carry around.
No longer swimming but drowning..
Struggling, fighting, clawing for the air of my existence.
It's pulling me down, down under.
This weight, this shackle, this burden has it finally won?
I'm running out.. This is my final breath.
My last hope and dashed dreams.
Will fall silent with all my pleas,
There is no more fight left in me.
I shall falter, give in, and fall
To this weight

Who misses who more?
Who must owe the other?
Who will love more?
We argue about these constantly.
In all truth I'm just glad you picked me,
I never deserved anything you gave me.
Who is more excited to see the other?
Who has a better smile?
Who will need more?
More arguments we've had.
In truth I don't know what I'd do without you,
I know you have trouble believing me.
You my one and only,
I'm only telling you because it's the truth.

You had me at a loss for words.
How precise your reflection of what's inside.
I almost believed in you.
You said you would listen,
That you'd try to understand,
You swore you'd help me find the words.
Pitty, I almost believed you.
False sense of security,
Pretentious air of purity.
Oh, How the tables turned!
Every thought made me more unclean against your pallor!
With every word crossed out, scratched through and penned
You peeled off a layer of my skin.
You turned the other cheek revealing a new reflection.
You turned me against myself leaving me defenseless.
Blank pages, empty spaces; you sh
