Freaky Fred's PoemHello new friend, my name is FredFreaky Fred's Poem4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
the words you hear are in my head.
I say, I said my name is Fred,
and I've been... very naughty.
The story I'm about to tell,
I tell you, I will tell you well,
Is of my dear aunt Muriel,
and just how I've been... naughty.
Voila the farm. My aunt lives here,
with precious pup, and husband dear.
My heart beats fast as I drew near,
I feel so nice... and naughty.
I thought just how excited they,
must be that I would come today,
they'd shout "come Fred! huzzah! hooray!
Dear boy you look so... naughty."
That's when my tired eyes beheld,
a doggy dog, like dog, he smelled,
D-O-G, is what he spelled,
and that's how I spell... naughty.
Alone was I, with tender Courage,
and all his fur, his furry furrage,
which, I say, did encourage,
me, to be... quite naughty.
Courage... your hair...
it reminds me of the first time I knew just how,
I felt, about hair.
It was a day, I'd not forget,
the day that I first met my pet,
oh what a lovely gift to get,
I'd never felt so..

Enter her shed
And you will find
Tons of funny animals
In all shapes and sides
Stay awhile longer
In her dark womb
Madness sure will find you
In darkness it will bloom
Goodbye...Goodbye...2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To you Cruel world, friends and all,
I say goodbye, as now I fall.
You've shown me pain, sadness and fear.
It cut me deep, bled out my cheer.
But still I laughed, as though to hide,
The gaping hole, my heart reside.
I wore a mask of borrowed cheer
to hide behind, to cover my fear
For I thought, I hoped, a prayer
that once I'll be, a happy mare.
But so it is not and never shall be.
The impossible wish, crushed within me
Ground to dust, from hooves to head.
It pours on out through tears I shed.
I can't go on, this pain I hide,
I've given up, can't keep inside.
So now I fall, and now I die
For though I laugh, Inside I cry...

People hiding from the lights.
A scratch, it burns, claws so deep.
The truth is out there can't you see?
One step further in the dark,
You will always wear these marks.
You gasp, a shock, straight to the bone.
Oh please don't!
Leave me alone.
There is no hideout, no safe room,
So I wish, please take me home...
Selfish Suicide"People who kill themselves are selfish."Selfish Suicide1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Well, darling, let me tell you a story,
A story all too true.
A daughter who became a wife, a wife who became a mother.
A mother of three girls...
One just above the age of a toddler,
One at the age of twelve,
And one entering the life of a married adult.
Now, the youngest girl was watching television,
And the oldest at the neighbor's home.
The twelve year old daughter sat at a computer with her closest friend,
When something terrifying happened.
Her mother was in the kitchen, coughing.
The daughter, although unable to see her mother, only could imagine the situation.
The mother walked calmly past the daughter with tears rushing down her face,
And up the stairs she went,
Into her bedroom...
Locking the door behind her.
The daughter, hearing the door lock, didn't bother to check on her mother.
She decided to expect and hope for the best.
Five, maybe ten minutes passed, the daughter still sitting at the computer,
When the mother stumbled down the

My heart burns in blind bitterness,
And I fear that crimson candle is growing old.
I'm sorry my love. I let you come to harm,
But please don't doom me to be alone.
I hate this damn world it leaves me sad,
My lungs aches in mortal madness,
And I fear that fulvous flame is growing bad.
I'm sorry my love. I never wanted your charm,
But please don't dare hang up that phone.
I hate this damn world it leaves me wired,
My eyes melts in halcyon harshness,
And I fear that white wick is growing tired.
I'm sorry my love. I long to keep you warm,
But please don't dine on my flesh and bone.

You soften the regrets in my ribs
weaken the bones with love
pressed into my shoes.
You melt my marrow with murmurs
lazily spent in the mornings
rested on the sighs of your breath.

to keep them warm
and in tune with yours.
You unlock and rob my tongue of words
like a piano with too many keys
spilling its lullabies onto the floor
softly turning the locks of my mind
with the music in you
if I would only stop to listen.

Honni, maudit, banni, rejeté par tes frères
Ô Porteur de Lumière, Ô Porteur dEspoir,
Ange lumineux, incarnation du Savoir,
Pour ton crime, tu fus condamné à lEnfer,
Payant ainsi le prix de ton abnégation.
Exalté incompris, éternel révolté,
Si pur parmi les purs, adoré, respecté
Hélas ta miséricorde pour les humains
Entraîna ta Chute et scella ton destin
A présent tu règnes dans ton sombre domaine
Et ton amour, ta bonté ne sont plus que haine.
Injustice pour un crime si dérisoire
Pathétique pantin de la Fatalité
Hier fils dEspérance, aujourdhui Ennemi
As-tu suffisamment de foi en cette vie
Pour combattre encore au nom de la Liberté
Pour ranimer enfin la flamme de lEspoir ?
Tabris attend de toi un mot de repentir,
Le pardon nest-il plus pour toi quun souvenir
The God of Fog...The seven-AM fog is leavingThe God of Fog...7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
filmgrain in my vision,
and on the other side
of the softened windowpanes
the cell phone towers are fading away
like needles buried into the sky.
The sun is cloud-masked today,
a white coin over the horizon,
and meanwhile the fog
leaves its dewy traces
on the dandelions breathing out
the last of their white existence
and mirroring the sun by the thousands.
The god of fog is a little gray cat
on the driveway, one shaft of light hanging
over him like an obelisk
the Egyptians would have been proud of.
We pass him,
protected by misted glass and moving steel,
and it strikes me that nothing

MagicA long time ago, when the world was new,Magic3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
and longer than anyone can remember
magic existed in the world.
It healed the sick
and didn't cause anything bad.
Magic was for good
and never harmed the people.
Then one day
a sorcerer broken by pain
and an outcast of society
used his magic
to hurt and cause pain.
He killed with his magic,
and made people suffer
in ways that should never be allowed.
The evil sorcerer went across the land
never sparing a soul and making
curses that could never be broken.
Five of the best magicians were shocked
and banded together
to stop his evil reign over the people.
Nothing the good magicians did worked
and they were faced with a final
completely unspeakable action.
The good magicians joined hands,
bound their power together
and used their life force
to stop his ways of evil.
The evil sorcerer fell,
and after that it was decided
that magic should never be used again
in case someone else decided
to use it the way the sorcerer did.
Now because of pain and a bro

The feel of your fingers on my skin.
Slow and longing,
The trail of your hands on my curves.
Languid and helpless,
The pulsing of my veins under your masterful strokes.
My love for you is like my love for apples.
Juicy, crunchy, delicious...
And as dark as a sinner's heart.

Pitch black, solitarily confined
A lost soul living out a sentence
That is appropriate for my crime
My pen once again confiscated
Eyes are closed, they leave me to rot
Confiscate my imagination
Those damn fools most certainly can not
Familiar with the words and grammar
Indeed how to construct a sentence
But I lie here in my six by eight
Unable to convey repentance
See my withered heart lies elsewhere
This island nation suffocates me
May the xenophobic, narrow minds
Sink without trace in to the sea
Daydreamers Amongst UsTo those daydreamers amongst usDaydreamers Amongst Us2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Tomorrow will soon be today
So choose every word carefully
As they might be the last you say
And they will echo through time
After your final shadow is cast
But those words and those emotions
Will have no place in the past
They'll take their place in tomorrow
And every day to the end of time
Your words, your thoughts and your wisdom
Will deviate us from straight lines
And show people there's another way
Peace and love can re-wire our brains
Show us how to avoid hatred
And from negative feelings refrain
Otherwise I can see suffering
But on an unheard of scale
Nations and religions will collide
Peace treaties will continue to fail
So daydreamers amongst us
Please unleash your wildest thoughts
Drop your line into the sea of wisdom
And show us what you have caught

laying down in a field of wheat in the afternoon.
You appear almost out of nowhere
and lay down next to me as you were meant to be.
The sun hurts my eyes,
as I squint at the clouds and try to make shapes.
You stare at me and I try to think,
yet the more you stare the harder it is to ignore.
Do you want the sun?
Ya, the sun.
Everyone gives the moon as a gift,
but to me, the only thing that can rival your charm
is the suns great shine,
and even then when you emerge outside
the suns grows dark and burnt.
You never were a poet
I couldn't help but laugh
at how long you probably spent
thinking of that one line.
I like the sun.
Then I'll wrangle the sun,
all for you.
We laid in the suns warmth
of sunflower kisses
and the tickles of wheat instead of grass
and nothing else mattered in the world.
I love you.
I love you too.
LE CERCLE DE FEULe cercle de feu.LE CERCLE DE FEU4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Dans mes rêves d'enfant, j'étais un fier guerrier
A l'il clair et sans peur, à l'écusson vermeil ;
Combattant les démons surgis de mon sommeil,
Je sauvais le château, récoltais le laurier.
Un soir, j'avais donné aux soins de l'armurier
Ma hache et mon écu, et en simple appareil
J'épousais ma princesse au charme sans pareil
Douce comme un vent frais soufflant sur un mûrier.
Mais le ciel s'assombrit, une horde macabre,
Menée par un cheval qui devant moi se cabre
Déferle sur la ville et détruit mon manoir !
Alors, horrifié, je la vois tout au centre
D'un grand cercle de feu, une épée dans le ventre ;
-Elle vomit son âme et sombre dans le noir.
The PromiseYou promised me, my love, you see, and I shall not forget.The Promise2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
We climbed the tower stairs as the bell solemnly chimed.
"If life forbids our love, then in death we shall wed."
You took my hand, we kissed our last, and off the edge we stepped.
But you let go, so I alone, plunged into the night.
But you promised me, my love, you see, and I shall not forget.
So I wait for you now, my love, for I know you must regret
Your eyes were flick'ring candles as you watched me die.
"If life forbids our love, then in death we shall wed."
You'll see me there again, some night, waiting by the tower steps.
You'll take my hand, I'll lead you up, up into the sky.
You promised me, my love, you see, and I shall not forget.
The bell will toll an exaltation, before we paint the ground deep red.
I'll whisper back the words you spoke upon our midnight flight:
"If life forbids our love, then in death we shall wed."
I'll ghost a kiss across your lips, to steal your final breath
Then look into your candle-eyes, and s
