Bleed foreverAnd tonight I miss you,Bleed forever2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
just like every night.
Then tomorrow I'll be fine,
like I always become.
But what if the wounds stop healing?
Then my cuts will bleed forever,
and the scars will always remain.
Like realizing a bad move too late,
I'll keep on struggling with the path I chose.
What do you know about my strength?
Do you even know I am broke,
struggling to stand up straight?
Do you know that I am weakened,
like the remaining snow in the warm spring sunlight?
And what do you know about my inner cold,
except that you believe I'll melt the ice?
So I wonder,
why do I seem so strong,
when everything is just a weak facade everyone can look through?
Why do I seem so strong, when I built up a broken wall only to keep me going?

putting that smile on my face,
I wasn't like this before.
I was happy,
something I don't know anymore.
Every morning I wake up with that smile,
that once was real,
watching the sunrise, a new beginning,
but not for me.
So I wander through the day,
barely living, hardly remembering,
everything said and done.
Guiding the others, comforting with love,
has made me blind to my own broken heart.
I am not as strong as I used to be,
I am not as strong as everyone thinks.
Every evening I feel the water running thorugh my hair.
Flushing, hot, mixing with my tears,
damned to be ignored.
There's no way out, that's clear.
No chance to leave it all behind.
The betrayal was too hard,
to create a new beginning for me.
Something I have to face alone,
without any aid. The happy me is gone,
No matter what I say, I do, I hear,
I scream, I take or I pretend,
the truth is there, which I never hoped to live.
There is more, but already now,
I lost the strenght to ca

Her broken dreams, that she'll never dream again.
Her trust to the world, destroyed, just like her soul.
Shattered, seeking, yes, almost mad,
she wanders along the streets at night,
wondering if at least the stars can tell
why nobody comes to pick her up from the ground when she's fallen,
why she always fought for everything her entire life,
why everything is happy on the outside, but then the wall just falls appart,
and there she is, with nothing.
She knows, that hope might be the only thing that'll always be there,
despite the darkness she might be in,
but right now, it is hard to see.
After all, she's just a girl with broken dreams and a shattered soul...

I tried to sing, but I lost my voice.
I tried to read, but I went blind.

I tried to die, but you kept me from falling.
Then I tried to live, but you took my heart.
ReversedI hate it when people have to die,Reversed2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I hate people that think they rule the world.
I hate war,
I hate it when blood is spilt,
I hate it when no one fights for the poor.
I hate it when people judge each other,
I hate it when people are tortured.
I hate it when families are torn apart,
I hate it how I say 'I hate it' all the time.
I love the sound of waves crashing against the shore,
I love it when people do something good.
I love it when I can be with the people I love.
I love it when new friendships are made,
I love it when the wind lifts fallen leaves high up into the sky again.
I love the icy cold of clear water at night,
I love it how we express passion in art.
It's hard to say 'I love it', when the bad things grow stronger.
It's hard to say 'I love it', when things are reversed through time.
But it's easy to say 'I love it', trust me, you just have to find what...
Through all sadness and fearForsaken, in a world I once built by myself.Through all sadness and fear3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Tempted and tortured by what I once desired.
Lost, in the shadows that once were the lights of my soul.
Driven by anger, I jumped up to my feet.
But pushed down by sadness, once caused by you.
Is there a light I can aim for?
Hope for anything, whatever it may be.
Do my wings carry me, or will they betray me?
Will I lay still on the ground,
or will I find the strength to carry on?
Will my soul regain its health,
or will it stay broken, and make me find my sorrow,
over and over?
If there every will be any answers,
I'll return to my world.
There'll be light, and I'll hold your hand,
through all sadness and fear.
In memoriamBack then, when we were just little kidsIn memoriam3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
we looked at each other as strangers.
People, that were never meant to find each other.
But we did, and there was soon some pain to bear.
As children, each goodbye was horrible.
And yet we head to bear one each year.
The language was what set us apart.
I was helpless, not knowing
if I should keep coming closer to you.
I did, and we were feeling happy.
A joyful child laughter,
mixing with the hot summer air.
Here I am now, and know your language.
But your time was over long ago.
And we still linger in grief today.
The language set us apart once,
and when I closed the distance,
you embraced death, and were nothing but memories.

just let it fall down.
This sound I've loved for so many years,
calming me, soothing me.
The world seems like a darker place when it rains,
but I don't mind.
Even heaven cries.", my Mum once said when I was young,
and asked why it had to rain.
Now, ten years later,
I know that rain is like a release for me,
the end of all sorrow, the end of all pain.
I can breathe freely again, the wet air filling my lungs.
It's like it uses a switch somewhere inside of me,
making everything that has been lingering for weeks,
go out and leave me in peace.
Give me time to think actually.
So now I ask;
why do many people hate rain?
We all need it for life, and once you've discovered
its soothing powers, you don't want it to stop again.
Rain is like freedom to me,
like a burden that flies far away,
into the gray mist around the world.
ShardsDusk arrived outside the windows of a little shack,Shards3 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
in the middle of the forst,
where no one could hear my cries.
Starving for days, and with dark rings under my eyes.
Still, I linger before a giant mirror,
old, but full of memories.
I've been standing there for hours,
watching my memories again,
on the edge of my sight.
Oh, how much I hate this reflection of mine -
the young girl, strong on the outside,
but with deadly fear in her eyes.
I feel my head getting heavier,
my pain getting stronger,
and my defense getting weaker.
The reflection staring back at me,
giving me that look, to run away,
flee from this misery I live.
But then, anger comes up through my veins,
something I never had time for before,
but now it's too late.
Wanting to destroy my fear, I punch the mirror with all I have,
and I feel the thin shards cutting through my flesh,
and the blood-red scars on my pale fist release me.
They ease away my fear, and as I soak the ground with my blood,
all my memories fade to grey, an

but only together with you.
I'd like to see the stars shine bright
but only if you hold me tight.
I painted the clouds a bright pink,
while doing so I did not think.
It seemed natural and supposed to be,
like the love between you and me.
I watched the rainbow turn from violet to red,
thinking how few tears I had shed.
Since I felt your warm embrace,
I know I had found love's grace.

I'm sacred, but no one knows why.
I hide, and let my feelings go.
My star is black, but my faith is true.
I am the rain, knowing the end.
My tears are of blood, and let go
a hidden scream, but no one hears.
My soul's destined to split, soon.
I don't have the power to fight,
not now, not me. My misery.

The moon is shining, and you are leaving.
You said you don't want to hurt me,
but only by saying that, you actually did.
All I want to do is to smash that book,
right in your face. We had history, you know.
And I threw it away. It's lying in the snow now.
If you pick it up, I am never going to let you
go again. So go ahead and make your choice.
It's probably the last one you'll make.

afraid of being noticed.
Your eyes refuse to meet mine,
when I come closer to you.
And when I ask you,
why you're shy,
you just walk away.
I reach out to get to you,
and then you turn around,
finally meeting my eyes.
This loneliness I see,
tears me apart.
Because I know, that there is so much in you,
that could give you the joy of living.
Just find your words,
and show your smile to the world.
Take a breath, and close your eyes.
'cause this world,
is not as beautiful without you.
Collect all you have,
deep inside your heart.
Run faster, and feel the cool air.
And jump, then enjoy the sight.
Never fall, because you belong up here,
with the joy you hid for so long.
Jump, then enjoy the sight.
After so many years,
you're there again,
where you once were.
Broken down, by what you felt.
Shattered in pieces, you stare into the distance.
Your past is to hard to bear,
and the presence is tearing you apart.
I am still there, too,
ready to take this
Darkwings Nightmare - EnglishWhen I was young, I dreamed the same nightmare,Darkwings Nightmare - English3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
over and over again. I lived one year, with pain,
each and every night. Wings, choking me to death.
Ripping my life in pieces, slowly, this terrible laughter.
I thought everything was over. But when I woke up,
it followed me until I left the house. Black, and
full of icy, biting cold. This nightmare followed me,
and there was no escape. I tried to stay awake, just to prevent
this fear, this pain, that didn't leave any signs. But, nothing.
It pulled me to my dreams again, and it all started over.
I didn't dare to tell anyone.
They might've thought I had gone insane.
But I hadn't. Every single bit was true. When the year had passed,
I feared that it would continue, and there was no place to hide.
I cried. I cried, until there were no tears left to crie.
It stung in my eyes. The next night, I didn't dream anything.
I was so glad, that I almost screamed when I woke the next morning.
But my joy was over soon. I slowly realized, that something

and on the strongest branch she sits,
with her sight far away in the skies.
She doesn't know where her life will take her,
because she dreams her way to the past.
Her few memories of the ones before her,
disappeared into the hands of evil.
All she can, and is willing to do,
is to keep those forever,
only to make the presence harder to bear.
Harder to hide this missing hole,
harder to concentrate on the luck she could find,
He has been waiting for her for years,
feeling her despair, her broken heart.
Only making it harder to face her everyday.
He wants to heal her, but she fakes that smile,
everyday and lets that shell survive another day.
In the night he cries, because she doesn't see.
How lucky she could be, if only she would give in.
He could go on forever, on the sandy beach,
but without her footprints by his side,
he can't take this journey through life.
Still he doesn't give up, because he seeks his hope,

They appear out of nowhere,
touching my heart, forming themselves.
Becoming a dream, but leaving me
forsaken, when I need them the most.
Then they come again, guiding my hand,
expressing my disappointment. Telling me
that they're sorry. Words,
the key to life.

She wonders why she never cires,

And when the bombs being to fall,

and more food than just a slice of cheese.
Once you're in, you can never get out,
welcome to the suffering crowd.
With black curtains of lies the truth is hidden,
pull your knives and cut the curtains,
resistance is still forbidden,
but nothing will stop us from mourning in complaints.
Raise your fists high into the air,
this tyranny has to end,
because it simply is not fair,
we will end this war hand in hand.
Start the engine, drive away,
a million times I pray,
leave the road behind,
our goal is one of a kind.
Leave your houses, come outside,
no more tears, no need to hide,
follow us in our march to fight,
nothing now can blacken our sight.
Once you're in, you can never get out,
welcome to the suffering crowd.
