AnxietiesHands over ears, screams hide the tearsAnxieties2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like monsters, they stand around, eerie and cruel
Grotesque and uncontrolled
They drive me to the point of collapse
So I do.
I’m the ground
I shake and tremble and tear everything down
I am the ground
I don’t understand how anyone stays around me
When I’m like this
I’m like a stone
Rolling out of control
Loud and predictable, we all know where I’m going
Down, as sure as water, I will fall
And as a boulder, I will tear down everything in my path

Memories of the PastMemories of the PastMemories of the Past3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Do you remember the blue summer sky?
Free of clouds and full of dreams
Our lives were so wonderful
All day long together with friends free of all worries
Do you remember the bikes that we used to ride?
I remember riding till the very end of the sunlight
All those times we fall and then got back up again
I remember all of it all the fun that was to be together
Do you remember the nights?
Nights full of games of hide and seek
And the fireflies were the only thing that shined in the dark
Also the sound of the crickets that echoes till the dawn
I remember all of that with sorrow in my heart
The way we were young and carefree
All of those memories now rest in our heads or in pictures
But I shall never forget about them
Nor will you forget about our time of joy
You remember it right?
The time when we were kids of the province
When we didn't have all those shiny technology
When we used sticks as a sort of fun
And to tell you the truth it was more fun back then than now
Only HumanHypocrite, selfishOnly Human3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Judgemental and pain
These words are similes
With your name
Greed and envy
Jealousy and a liar
Dancing on hot coals
And questioning the fire
Not even considering
The people in the picture
Forgetting what the purpose is
Ignoring the scripture
Preaching on poverty
Then blowing off your money
Yelling at the racist
But thinking t's funny
Crying at the people
To stop judging and assumin'
But we always fall again
We who are only human
ComplicateToo often in our livesComplicate3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We complicate things,
Cluttering our minds and hearts
With useless worries and fears.
Instead of drinking in the Summer sun
Or becoming mesmerized by your coffee,
You worry about getting sunburnt
And consuming too much caffeine.
We forget to take pleasure
In a simple hello and goodbye;
A smile shared, an "I love you",
A hug given for no reason.
We analyse every look and smile
Since each syllable means something;
Even a tiny thing such as an emoticon
Has a deeper meaning these days.
A simple "how are you" or "why"
Can be seen as offensive,
As too intrusive, as nosy,
Too demanding and suspicious.
Just talking to someone of the opposite gender
For more than a few minutes
Will have people automatically assuming
The two of you are in a relationship.
Instead of enjoying the music,
We criticize the lyrics, discuss the tune,
Making the song so technical,
Sucking it dry of any emotion.
Just sitting alone on your bed
Listening to "Florence and the Machine"

Put the blade down
Don't you think it's time for something new?
A new attitude, a new way of dealing with
The things they put you through
A new way to survive
A new way to pull you through
You may not see it now
But if you hold on
It always gets better somehow
So throw your self-destructive tool
Away and join the fight
We'll show those in pain
That there's always a light
And I know you think that no one's there
And I know you think that no one cares
But the things they said, they're not true
They're only trying to hurt you
If you go through with this
It'll only get worse
So just throw it away
So just throw the guilt away
All the anger, all the pain
All the fear and all the shame
Just throw it all away
On the edge
There's a girl stood looking down
And she's so far up
She can see the whole town
Little did she know
The very next day
They'd take back all the things they say
But now she'll never find out
Wait it out
Just wait and see
It will get better for b
Me Against the WorldLost within a world of apathy;Me Against the World3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Practically sitting on the edge of tragedy;
such a catastrophe.
My mentality is such a calamity;
the audacity of that analogy.
Elaborately I express my insanity;
with such brutality.
And yet, ever so casually,
I sit on the fence of normality;
the formality of my mortality.
Yet again, it's all in vanity.
My life is such a travesty;
but still, such a fantasy.
My life perhaps is a rhapsody;
and I will patently, so valiantly,
live my life with majasty;
amnesty, lazily and happily.
Faded Memories of YouThink back to the days,Faded Memories of You2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The days that we remained,
Tight in each other's arms.
"Together forever 'til we fall apart".
Back over the times,
The times that we stayed,
Under the blanket.
"Here with you, I will always be safe".
Through the moments,
The moments in which we kissed,
Like nobody else would love you more.
"I promise, only you I shall adore".
The secrets you told,
The love that we hold,
It all starts to crash down.
"Together forever 'til we fall apart".
I wander alone,
Setting myself to the danger,
Of this world.
"Here with you, I will always be safe".
Time to let go,
Leaving only memories to remain.
You and me, now alone.
"I promise, only you I shall adore".

Damned soul collector
Tell me, how could you extort the life out of those shiny, brown eyes?!
I'm vividly smiling as he slowly dies
Tell me, didn't you fell a thing while giving the poisonous kiss?
I feel every beating of his heart as we are immersing in the bliss
A soul collector, destroyer of the mind,
I'm about to extinguish his light, to leave him lost and blind
I'll encage his ripped soul,
Just after he'll lose the self-control
Don't drag another soul into your disgrace,
Just one more blanked face
Don't kill again with your breath-taking embrace,
I promise, just one more one more stolen core
You know you shouldn't, but your claws are digging already in his chest,
I'm spilling his blood, the flesh I wrest
Don't collect this soul, not this time,
I must capture his soul before he captures mine,

Locket HeartShe murdered my love,Locket Heart2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With my locket heart buried in her hand
She shattered the glass,
And the golden glaze rusted to rubbish,
In death, it still beats
She couldn't keep the promise
The one that I wanted to be kept forever,
And almost all of her words became vacant
And the words,"I love you,"
Become inane and blank
With a BANG!
and a CRASH!
She took the god-forsaken mallet
To crush the husk of my pathetic, fragile
To think I could love,
And to think I could smile,
To think it was something real,
And for it to end with a flash, glazing over my unprepared eyes
She portrays an innocence,
She could not kill a fly...
She tortures it, disects it,
And finds its kryptonite
I'm beaten and broken,
And blood still intrudes over the crevices,
The sheet is not sheer nor filmy,
It is coarse and viscous,
The smell permeates the nostrils of my nose
To resemble the bitter, metal scent of pennies
The weight of me and my downbeat presence,

I Wonder...Sometimes I wonder what I am,I Wonder...2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
If all these pieces actually make a man
Or if I’ve lost a piece or two
From all the times I’ve shattered.
I can’t help but wonder that maybe
If my pieces are scattered,
That the moon might make a nice eye,
And the black night sky its lid.
Perhaps the stars would be better,
But they shine in another sky,
Of her own scattered puzzle,
Hidden behind their own black veil.
And I ask myself,
How we can all be so broken,
And still have hope that maybe,
Someone can put us back together,
And we might be happy again.
Sometimes I catch myself wondering
If maybe someone else has the pieces
That would fit in the spaces between my fingers,
So they won’t be alone anymore.

But cameras depend
On the lighting
In the mirror I'm not perfect
But mirrors can lie
And magnify all
The blemishes we hide
In the shower I am talented
All the sadness and pain

In the end I am human
While perfection I strive
Humans have faults
It's what makes our lives
A Poem of PoetryPoetry is like a drawingA Poem of Poetry2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A drawing made of words
A drawing not to be shown
But to be heard
Poetry is like the wind
For it can be soft and warm
And come in a graceful form
Or it can be swift and cold
Emanating fear and nothing bold
Words are meant
To be shared unbent
Not twisted full of lies
And should be without
Any sorrow or sighs
Poetry is beautiful
It's a song without instruments
Poetry is wonderful
A colourful collage of imagination
Poems are lovely
A poem is a story
And if you have never heard one
I shall feel very sorry
Silence.When the silence comesSilence.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
we will be called the contemplators,
originators but never innovators.
We will serenade ourselves at night
with the arabesque pinwheels
of the unquantifiable, and the inescapably
abstract pooling behind
Abstract and abstruse.
It's in our nature
we are the tawny wings
pasted on scrawny and thick
bodies, waiting for anyone to turn
on the lamp and suck us in.
We hope for heaven,
and only get burned.
But when it comes
we'll be waiting. We were never
not storytellers, because no one
ever wants our stories.
We're the ones left behind
but left intact. Nothingness
is a wholeness in itself.
It comes not as we were told
it was about time to get rid of fairy tales,
the sparkling suburbs of bliss.
No one cares about gold-paved streets
when the mundane is over-processed,
cheap, and impure.
It will arrive one day
and everything will return to
its beginning: the dead will
rise and fall again, Adam will
flow back into God

My lover of this night
My body shivers
And I know exactly why
You drive me crazy
But it feels perfectly fine
Candles are burning
And so am I
I feel you closely
Easily losing my mind
You're moving so slowly
Making me go wild
Baby, I'm pleading
Gently kissing your lips
Whatever I'm feeling
I want more of this
I want you to be mine
Even if just for tonight
Naked desire of mine
Burning flesh of yours
Heart instead of mind
Gain instead of loss
It feels good to love
It feels right in the core
I might have just sold my soul
But it was worth it after all

The sadness in her eyes, makes me come alive.
This darkness in her veins, makes me feel insane.
Those pointless arguments, as she falls in disdain.
That chemical bond we break, as she falls over again.
She knows she's grown attached.
She knows she just won't last.
It's a disturbing mindset...
When you breathe and you regret.
Laugh, if her screams become shrill.
Deep down she feels this thrill...
I'm only her conscience speaking the truth.
As she lies to herself and to you.

Staring at the other girl, the one that's not alone
Girl with skin that glistens, with the eyes of crystal seas
Grin of shining diamonds and a laugh like a disease
Flashes just a glance and soon, she's every trouble's cure
She has everything… and No One's off to be like her.
Eating turns into a crime, she'd rather be away
Thrusting fingers down her throat to make herself okay
Watching as her very bones are seen behind her flesh
There she drowns in tears, for she has not yet seen success.
Minutes turn to hours, and these hours turn to days
Every moment slipping, slowly fading into grey
Rapidly, her body turns to nothing but her bones
As she fights for beauty, as she battles for the throne.
Broken hearts must learn to beat, and this she came to know
Learning it the hard way when her heartbeat grew too slow
Yet, she somehow managed still to shine from what's within
Lying in her casket with her hidden, unseen sin.
