Lord, I Am Ashamed.Sleep and ILord, I Am Ashamed.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Have grown distant lately.
Back when the air I drank
Was more naïve,
We were friends sometimes
And sometimes enemies.
We bickered and loved
The taste of the wind,
The song of the chickadee,
The color of dreams
To warm my life.
The acres of that country
Are now reduced
To a single small lot
Encircled by a
Gray cyclone fence
That holds bitterness
Rather than keeping out
The worries of the world.
But I suppose
I don't really notice it,
Trees used to whisper to me
Of an earnest jay
Building her nest
Or of two squirrels
Caught up in the heat
But who really detects
Over so many
My own skull throbs
As if I'm diving
Down, down, deep
Into a scummy lake.
What breaks my heart
More than anything else
Is that I don't recall
My familiarity with the sky.
With silly and necessary things
To realize I've forgotten

With a beautiful twist.
It starts on my thigh,
And ends on my wrist.
My eyes give me away,
Though there's a smile on my lips.
I want my bones to protrude,
Especially on my hips.
It's an everyday battle,
Until finally you disappear,
Because you screamed your lungs out,
But nobody wanted to hear.
Cry yourself to sleep,
Another sleepless night,
Trapped in my own fucking mind.
I've been told that dreams,
Can come true.
But they forgot to mention,
That nightmares are dreams too.
So when will I wake up from mine,
Because I'm in a race against time.

To make you laugh
To make you smile
I danced and twirled about
And broke my self-esteem
All to make you laugh
All to make you look in my direction

Even when you pushed me away
Just so that you wouldn't be alone
Just so that you wouldn't forget me
You called me names
And yet I'm still here
Because I love you.

What had been going through Berwald's head when he had made you go with Lukas all on your own? It was bad enough that the two of you got off on a terrible start when Emil was inside your heart. Now that the dragon had been captured at the cost of a few mistakes—though you couldn’t be entirely sure if it was completely your fault—the line between your relationship was holding together by a micro-sized thin spider web ready to break at the right breath of the wind—or the wrong words.
Still, if Berwald had intended for your trip to only consist of you and Lukas, then it couldn’t hurt to try to patch any holes that might have shattered in your bonding—not that there was much of a bond to begin with. In that case, you would have to build it up even stronger than before. Whether he liked it or not, you were going to have to earn Lukas’ trust if you were going to successfully pull off a rescue mission for Emil. You first decided to try it

While church bells ring.
Don't turn back,
On this beautiful day.
Just two words,
that's all you have to say,
and then you'll be on your way.
Finally your courage paid off,
Now there's no turning back.
You asked her,
And she said yes.
Now you're staring in her eyes,
In her beautiful lace dress.
It's my turn now,
Oh gosh, what am I doing.
Why am I walking away?
But I don't listen...
Open those church doors,
And stare at evil in the eyes,
With teared black wings,
And a vicious smile.

And now you must pay,
Fore you found love,
And that was your last day."

Fireflies dead and gone,
Come dancing in the moonlight
To move once again,
Spreading light wherever you fly
Forgotten souls mingle,
In your hidden red light
Looking back on the past,
Taking in every detail
Once the night is spent,
Going back to where you were put to rest
The unknown souls slowly disappear,
As the night burns away to the dawn

His friend shrugged slightly, brushing a hand through his chestnut colored hair. Mercutio seemed rather smiley, but uncharacteristically quiet since their hysteria over the fish bubbles. Neither was going to mention the one they had in tow with them. It was a larger bubble, with a spiky blue fish and school of purple fish swimming around it. The fish were unfazed by their change in location and simply swam. Neither was sure what they were going to do with their bubble of fish, but they were going to keep it and that was that.
"I've not made a decision yet," Mercutio admitted. "Was there somewhere specific you wanted to go?"
"Of course not."
"Don't start," Cian frowned as he pointed an accusing finger at Mercutio. "I just crossed the universe for you. The least you could do is give me some credit."

Yor grinned. This game would be easy to handle.
First reason why you thought so was because the players didn't look strong. In fact the looked like they just wanted to surrender and keep living in peace. But now it was too late. Your team wouldn't give them any chances to get out of that so easily.
Or should I say they wouldn't give you any chances to get out of there that easily? Yeah, that would be better. Because, you sure were loosing against the Italian team. Especially their 'leader', Feliciano Vargas, was pretty good. But, together with his older brother? They were almost unbeatable. They scored two goals in thirty minutes while your team didn't even get near the gate. It was frustrating.
So frustrating that at the 80th minute you snapped and pushed the younger Vargas hard on the ground. You saw how he started crying and immedately felt bad. You didn't have any rights to hurt him, after all it wasn't his fault that you

I walked towards the main cabin slowly and pridefully. We had just won another battle, surely there is some pride in that. Some of my crew members cheered as I passed by. I grinned at them, but didn't stop. After a successful battle, a party is always insured, and there'd be plenty of time to talk during that. I strolled past a guest room and stopped momentarily. I pushed the door open and grabbed a fresh pair of clothes. The ones the girl wore seemed a bit... tattered.
Being lost in thought can make the world seem to speed up, and in no time at all, I stood directly in front of the main cabin's door. Being the gentleman that I am, and not wanting to scare her, I politely knocked on the door gently. Upon hearing no answer, I pushed the door open a crack and stuck my head in.
