A Poem About The Night - For dragongirl0000The truly deep core of night
Free of lies, light and fright
Shadows cast by trees and
We stare at dark blue skies
Fragile minds, snuggled away
Safely in deceiving beds
Hiding from nightmares
That come by day into their heads
They can't deny
They live a lie
By connecting all evil
With this beauty of nightmares
Our refuge, our paradise
Where our dreams come alive
Their eyes shut, ours wide open
We watch the dust dance
Over silent streets
All panic and hysteria
That the dreadful day may cause
A fire of deep and burning passion
Always extinguished by sunlight
Spiteful words they carve in stone
To raise their children in fear
Never shall they
Dear Stranger - One -How does it come, dearest stranger,Dear Stranger - One -6 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
That you make me hate you so much?
How does it come, that someone I do not know,
Can make me feel so lost and insecure?
Just tell me to leave you alone,
And I'll leave, to never bother you again,
But on days like this, oh I could swear,
That you're begging me to hate you!
You hide behind an anonymous name,
Behind a fake face, a mask that covers you,
You evolve and improve your tactics,
Your attacks now very from stupid to smart.
And I must admit, I am impressed,
At how well you manipulate us,
All I have to protect myself,
Is knowing how it felt to be the same.

My substance, I'm keen to abuse,
A legal drug, I tell ya, cheap, but oh dear!
So insecure and dangerous...should I?
It'd be my secret, as unique as it is,
Damn it, I'll do it, so excuse me, Sir,
Pass me money, I'm really in need!
I get what I want, this way,
Just be who I'm not,
And everything works out
Relieved I feel free, inside I'm going nuts,
But my face doesn't show it,
No one checks for my eyes,
So I stay fine, better hide,
I can't speak, but whatever,
Just take a seat, and rest,
But didn't that girl just look suspiciously?
Was that just real or imagined?
Okay, maybe I underestimated this...
FeverJust a day, feeling fineFever10 months ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
as black and white intertwine
Begin to tremble, no reason why
Is this insanity, or am I high?
Sparkling faces grace my view
Intense versions of purple and blue
The sky is striped, the clouds dance
I'm certain I fly, comfortable in trance
Then I see the floor, as I fall
Because I ran right in to a wall
I hear laughter, realize it's me
Little pink man are all I see
I try to stand, of course I fail
Feeling sick and rather frail
Then I black out, awake in my swaying bed
A bitter sting messing in my head
I know I'm back now, finally
Hello my bitter sweet reality
To My PeersCan't you see, you could be so much more?To My Peers8 months ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
If only you would be strong enough to ignore,
These lables and lies,
That you actually despise!
But you follow the river wherever it flows.
Follow these trends that come and go!
And discriminate people like me,
Who aren't the way you'd like us to be.
Even though we're all the same!
I'm the black sheep, the one to blame.
But I know that I'm not a mistake,
And that you, my beautiful, are simply fake.
You are too insecure to speak your actual mind,
Wearing a mask everyday, but I can see behind.
And inside, I know how ugly and twisted you are,
I can see all the pain, every single scar.

Would I say I love you?
If I could let go...
Would the scars still show?
When the letters would make sense,
And built into solid words,
Would I then take my chance,
And fly in the mass of birds?
Could I keep the colours from bleeding in,
When I wipe the blood from my chin?
The lifeless body would lay still,
Counting the days to the next kill.
Would the bombs lie to rest?
The weight be lightened on my chest?
When I close my eyes in silence,
Asking for God to stop the violence...
Then we might embrace the sun,
Our feet aching form the run,
And melt in each others arms,
Blending out a thousand alarms...
Could we be th

Clenching my chest,
So I cannot sit still,
Pained by unrest,
I twiddle my thumbs,
Not waiting but watching,
My mind feels numb,
And my eyes cannot see,
The world seems to blur,
As this monster breaks free,
With hungry eyes,
It shadows my mood,
No time for whys,
It's crippling and crude,
It's a forsaken part of me,
That I'd rather hide,
But I accepted the plea,
And I will abide,
We'll see where this broken road leads,
My soul is a devastating battlefield,
Growing the more my spirit bleeds,
Hope to decrease it, once I am healed,
The line in between, is so thin,
Crawling over my skin,
My life is

Facing each day on my own
I refuse friendship
For I know...
If I care, I'll get hurt
I'll be scarred by all the words
You spit at me
But underneath the surface...
I'm longing for your love
Its tearing me apart inside
Must cast my eyes to the floor
All these feelings I must hide
I pretend to be tough
But this lie feels so rough
If I care, I'll get hurt
I'll be scarred by all the words
You spit at me
But underneath the surface...
All I want is your love
I want your arms around me
Don't you care, can't you see?
I really need you here
By my side
By me side...
I write silly songs for you
Trying to figure

Leave it alone
Just for a while
It won't smile
So don't waste your time
Go ahead, live your life
And cover your scars
Never forgive and forget
You swore “Never regret”
Too late, it's now
All time has passed
As you went and lived
A life was taken
And it didn't survive
You missed a great big mess
Close your eyes
And protect your ears
So nothing ever reaches you
Now for a while
You can't smile
Since it has left your life

Waiting for the other me
To show up
Right beyond me
Too far away to touch
It's like my mask
It talks for me
While I figure them out
It chatters and smiles
And I just watch
Every single move
Sometimes it glances at me
Giving me a sign
We communicate this way
And it works out fine
But then it points out all mistakes
And pressure drowns me out
That's when we are thrown together
And something has taken control
And something won't let us breathe
Something will teach us fear
And I'm on my way to believing
Into the real kind of insanity

I just wish this life would be less complicated, so I wouldn't go to bed with this restless twist in the pit of my stomach.
So I wouldn't be this restless...
I wish these warnings wouldn't be, could you imagine how easy life would be? Okay, people would die, but people die anyways, everyday, and there are too many people on this earth, if you ask me.
But how does my opinion count? It doesn't, you may disagree, but I know better.
I'm just a kid, a pretty lost one, this life offers too many chances, it's impossible to not to miss any. It's like we're meant to feel guilty for being alive.
I sometimes hate having all these choices
Don't You Give UpFrom time to time you sit in the dark,Don't You Give Up7 months ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Life has lost it's meaning-
Pain sears through every bone,
and your heart feels like stone,
Life is heavy, a game you'll lose,
Avoiding failure, but you can't choose,
Everyone seems to wait for you to die,
There is no friendship, love is a lie,
But you've never given up hope,
I can see you still try to cope,
You're not dead, you're full of life,
It's waiting for you to begin to strive,
Unconsciously you chose happiness,
And you'll achieve it, though life is a mess,
I can tell that you'll keep going,
And I will stop the pain from showing,
Time will pass and things will look up,
Through death and despa

I now write to you from a hidden place,
I can see yours, but I covered my face,
Don't even try to find out about me,
It'll be bad for you, if you ever see,
Too weak to face the truth alone,
Too afraid to bring your friends,
Stranger I ask you in all honesty,
You'd rather burn, or drown in the sea?
How have you become so scarred?
Bones left broken, skin left charred,
We grew so far apart,
But tell me, where's your heart?
We fight and fight, but forget to breathe,
Furious and full of rage, we burn and seethe,
Stranger can you remember or recall,
What led us to stumble and fall?
I see you wriggle as you read my letter,
TravellerMy life's a journeyTraveller3 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Travelling one of many passions
I long to see the world
With my eyes wide open
To tell my own stories and legends
To astonish with my experiences
To gain knoledge
To gain power by learning
To become a part of a strangers land
And to be a stranger once again
To collect inspiration and memories
And find unrelated members of my family
I crave to learn all these languages
Though they'll never be my mothertounge
They'll forever stay a part of me
And change my point of view
I long to explore everything
And to express myself
And I want to feel the sun on my face
The rain soaking my clothes and skin
Growing inside 'till I'm a giant!
I beg to be overwhelmed by all these impressions
And fall into bed exhausted
I want to touch unfamilar ground
Walk upon unknown streets
Will you come with me?

She showed me her arm today
Broken down, without a word to say
She lay in my arms and cried
And told me she can't decide
Between death and being alive
I saw all her bloody, raw skin
Rocking back and forth
Her knees pulled to her chin
A wrecked little doll
All dirty and used
Tired of being nothing at all
Enjoy the persisting abuse
I told her it hurts me to see
How she crumbles eventually
How I die right before her eyes
When she slips from my sight
But she just smiled and said
She can't help it
I know she doesn't try to be bad
But she's killing me
Slaughtering me beyond recognition
Like she's completing my fail
