FallingThere is no easy way out of thisFalling3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have fallen too often to rise again
Crawling on the ground, beneath my hands and knees the earth is on fire
Nothing can quench the flames soon enough
I try to look ahead but the smoke fogs my vision
The music stopped long ago, I am fighting a lost war
What remains in me is almost nothing
I wouldn't have looked at this dagger in my bruised hands
tonight it has become an option
for my tired mind, exhausted with trying
my helpless body, ridden with trials
my disappointed soul, disappointed in myself.
Watching each dream fraying to threads
hiding below the ashes
Angel's wings could not sweep it away
and now my spirit is breaking.
Your LoveYour eyes,Your Love3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your brilliant blue sparkling eyes
How they stare into mine with such certainty,
That you love me
Your sweet dimples,
The smile that could spread over miles,
How it can make me feel happy even on the darkest days
Your pale soft hands
How you take mine with yours,
And tell me your words of wisdom,
All while staring at me with your blue scintillating eyes
Your way of bringing me in tight towards you,
How you wrap your arms around me,
And bring me in close to your face,
Close enough so I could kiss you on your adorable cheeks
Your way of giving compliments,
How you tell me you'll always care about me,
And you'll like me no matter who I am
No matter what I decide
Your technique of being gentle,
And respecting how I feel,
How you consider my feelings and try to help me,
I love you
Jack frostSnow fallingJack frost1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Silent in the night
For children who wake up
tomorrow with delight
Not once do they consider
that their beloved snow
isnt brought by snow clouds
but by a stranger who is unknown
A boy with hair white
As the snow in which he brings
A boy with a wide smile
As the the angles wings
In his cool hand
A wooden staff he holds
To bring the winter frost
and beautiful December snow
Nipping at your nose
is all of him you hear
And once the snowflakes gather
You know that he is near
You hear his name upon the lips
of a blowing winter breeze
Jack Frost it whispers to you
Hoping you’ll believe
But very few have ever seen
the prince of frost and ice
For so little do believe
in him being true
So I’ve come to ask you
Laying beside you in the snow
Do you believe in him?
this boy of legend and myth
~For if so then just tell me
For truely I am him
But sadly you dont see me
Like every one before
some day soon
Someone will see
will believe in me.

Red rose of beauty
With thorns so sharp and yet leaves so fragile
Red like the purest blood.
So harmless, yet so harmful.
Red rose of beauty let me pick you with fragility, take care of you
with love and forever watch your leaves grow.
Red rose of beauty I will take care of you untill you wither.

But it made you smile
Would it still be a sin?
If I opened the door
But turned you away
Would you still come in?
If I sliced my skin
But it didn't hurt
Would it still be wrong?
If I acted all brave
But couldn't face it
Would I still be strong?
If I tied my noose
Around a tree's open arms
Would it be an embrace?
If I left tonight
And begged you stay
Would you still give chase?
If I committed sin
But hurt nobody
Would I be welcome above?
If I do something you hate
But only for your good
Could it still be true love?
A Technicolor LifeA Technicolor Life1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Swirls of hue like memories
Taint the purity of the once white rose
Innocently prevailing a imagery
A image of the known
These rainbowish flurries of color
Paint a ignorant mindset once again
Covering over the corruption
With their technicolor ways
How my dreams fade
Dwelling beneath that rose of life
When they will ever bud again
I shall not be aware
A colorful life in a hand
That can be crushed by a simple grasp
Has a value of far more then such
Therefore resist the urge to touch
The technicolor rose of life.

live under your bed anymore.
They don't rattle your closet doors
and scratch at your windows.
They hide in your
pill bottles and sleep
with your razors,
laughing as you choke on
the smoke from your cigarette.
They sit on the toilet
as you vomit whiskey and rum,
counting down the days
until you self-destruct.
They throw flowers on your grave
surrounded by people pretending to give a shit
and tell everyone you were so
and that it's okay, because
you're in a better place, now.

Our Numb Tears
Something deep within me / Is longing for relief
A haunting aura around me / Reminding me of the grief
Scratching at the core of my soul / Hope is swallowed by a black hole
Locked in the center of my heart / All that is left is the traumatized part
Laugh, smile, blink, and focus. You just need to act as normal as possible.
You cannot let this pain get the best of you. Don't do anything irresponsible.
The damage you do to yourself also effects everyone else, so don't let it become irreversible.
You're being too hard on yourself, no one is perfect in life, you're only human, you're not invincible!
Shock waves of guilt enter my system / While a deathly peace is in the distance
And aftershocks of regret strike me down / I can't show that I'm hurt when they're around
Tremors of anxiety / Infest my entire body
Lachryma PapaverisYou remind me of many things. When the birds don't wake up in time to see the sunrise, their heads under gossamer feathers, roosting in barn rafters. Snapped violin strings with diamond penknives. Flickering swinging lightbulbs above scared grey eyes. That mix of shock and awe when the merry month of May freezes the ground over.Lachryma Papaveris2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Quite simply, you are what I would describe as a waste. I could summon twelve adjectives for whatever you call yourself, but not this time. I am willing to bet that you could have been a poster child for harmless teen spirit and cheesy eighties show theme tunes, rather than the symbol for 'don't do drugs and stay in school.'
You could have had innocent smiles in the summer with a bowl of rom-com cliches to drink from. You could have had the world at your feet, rather than being crouched at its doorstep, begging for money to clog your veins with more opium and filter all the oxygen out of your lungs with a hefty inhalation of tobacco and nicotine.

Just because we want a heart?
Thats the only reason
Why we take things apart.
Have you any idea
How not feeling is like?
Theres simply nothing,
Like its an empty void.
We do make use of others
But is that such a big deal?
Sure it may not be nice,
But its not like you never do.
Why is it so difficult
To let us have what we want?
Yet you chose to play hero
And now we are all none.
Happy As Could BeThe boy was as happy as could be.Happy As Could Be7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
A joy to everyone he would see.
Stop and chat for a while.
He could make anyone smile.
Everyone wished they could be him.
So pure he was, without sin.
But he loved to be by himself.
He had hid from everyone else.
All the smiles were in vain.
His mind was filled with pain.
He didn't know how to end.
Known not by a single friend.
Everyone thought he was fine.
He gave a smile for the last time.

Blood red rose
Blunt green blades
Between my toes
Sun yellow dress
The wind a soft breeze
You’re head in my lap
As we lay by the trees
Don’t blink your blue eyes
No, don’t leave this day
Because one silent breath
Could be taken away
Share in this second
Just once to be real
When a second’s a mile
And the world is surreal
And as our beings fade
To nothing but dust
We’ll still lay here
Just the two of us
Spirit by spirit
My soul in your hands
As the wind carried sands
So dream with me now
And spare every breath
Use all your time
‘Till nothing is left

And as your lips drip

I lay so still and wonder why.
Thoughts racing through my head.
Almost think I'd rather be dead,
Then go through these pointless motions.
Am I depressed or devoid of emotion?
With no happiness, I only feel pain.
Faking this smile is just a drain.
I don't know how much til I crack.
Almost wish for an anxiety attack.
What comes next? More of the same?
A suicide shouldn't be my aim.
When all seems lost, what do you do?
Getting some sleep would be something new.
Goodbye lullabyWith our heart in a fierce beat ,Goodbye lullaby2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We'll dance together on the empty street.
With your shallow breathing against my head,
We'll sway along to words unsaid.
When you look in my eye,
I know, it's time to say goodbye,
But will you grant me one last wish?
To Hold me in your arms,
And Sing me a sweet lullaby,
To let me drown in your melodic voice for one last time,
And Let me dream of a place where you are mine.
To let the tune wash away my pain,
For I want to relive that moment once again,
When you and I first met each other
And to prove to myself, that there can be no another,
Who could ever take your place.
And our moments spent together,
I'd do anything to retrace.

sweeping across the snow
left me a feather
and away he goes
and away he goes
drifting up on the air
but I seem to be stuck here
melting in the cold
cannot rip my eyes from the sky
cannot get my fists to unfold
the words have frozen to our tongues
that's what happens to winter love
so you think this feather is enough to make a wing
so you try to free me from it,
but your claws only sting.
i walk away
come to regret every footfall
but I can't keep you down
because you're up
and I'm frozen to the ground
laying pale in the snow
he can soar no more
you didn't have to do that
have to fall on your own sword
cut your wings apart
to get me back home.
and as I see you freeze
I know now what it is I believe
that someone could give up everything
come down to the winter
do you know the secret, Bird?
learn to live with the cold
though you turn blue
the heart beats hot inside of you
I know it

I never smile.
I never speak.
I am too 'shy'.
What they did to me,
It was too hard.
I wasn't strong enough,
In my heart, it is dark.
I want to see them bleed.
I want to see them cry.
I want to kill them .
Just let me try.
I'm not that weak,
I can do that.
I tell you what's wrong with me,
I am mad.
It makes me happy,
Happy, too see them cry.
I would just laugh at them,
And show them my insane smile.
Yes, maybe I am insane,
One day I'll kill them.
I show them how it is to suffer,
Who's that helpless child then?
They'll all be dead soon.
And they'll see,
see and regret,
everything that they did to me.
