BackstabberI know your dark secret,
it fills me with glee.
I hop and I jump delightedly.
When you see me you cower,
your eyes beg me don't tell.
I stood there laughing
while your tears fell.
Your secret is mine;
forever in my grasp.
I just want you to watch your back.
Cause you never know
when someone will attack.
RazorSweet little friend,Razor1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
You are the only one that
Truly understands me.
The only one that
Holds my hand
When I am
The one that listens
When I am upset.
The only one that
Hears me crying.
The one that counsels
Me how to cope with life.
And you're hungry
For more blood.
You are jumping and
Ready to be fed.
You love the softness of
My skin, and you promise to
Be gentle when you break
Through the vein.
But you're not strong enough.
You aren't sharp and bold
Like the others.
You're such a frail creature
And now it's your turn
To be disposed.
In the trash,
Where you always belonged.
MessEverywhere I goMess1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Every single place
The troubles seem to grow
Every smiling face
Eventually frowns with woe
Why can't I do
I just screw
Up everything despite
The happiness I try to spew
Is it me
Am I the source of this ache
Does the pain flow free
Is this what I make
Should I go away and hide
Never to see others
Or the outside
But would I stop another's
Pain and be the only one that ever cried
What is a life with no grey
When everyone is sad
I'd give it all away
It wouldn't be that bad
I would finally be able to say
I saved a life
Toxic LoveHis heart is an anchorToxic Love1 year ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
His arms are a cage
His lips are like pencils
Rewriting each page
His eyes are deceiving
His tongue tells a lie
His words say they're sorry
His hands make her cry
His smile is salvation
His scent is a drug
His power is greater
His face is just smug
She knows it's not healthy
She knows it's not right
Deep down she is scared
That she will lose this fight
He said that he loved her
He said that he cared
But in the end love
Was a burden they shared
He said that he loved her
And maybe he did
But love that's so toxic
Is not worth a quid

A burning sensation scarring the heart
You spoke your words, as if an art
All starting once you came
My suffering only a stain
My Problem Is...I've always been a friend of darkness..My Problem Is...1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Darkness have found me.. Found me pieces
Gazed into me with big cloudy black holes..
Embraced me with cold thorny shadows..
Unclothed me from my virginity..
Wrapped me with shabby layer of shame..
Took away all the pulse..
Wiped off what I thought I owned..
Sucked out all the sanity..
Licked me and numbed me..
Injected me with a rough touch of evil..
Flooded me with sickness..
Shaped me with hate..
Adorned me with sharp spikes..
Broke me down in deep silence..
Smothered me into the unknown..
Sunken in endless emptiness..
No escape no salvation..
No resort no hope..
Regret and remorse..
Grief and agony..
Pain and suffer..
Tears and scars..
Is what darkness gave to me...
(Burn)These memories I need to burn,(Burn)1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
too much pain they cause
but they refuse to burn,
my soul guards them so precious...
(like you should have guarded my heart)
As much as I hate this feeling right now
I still crave it,
the last string attached to you
the one I cling to for dear life.
(like you used to cling to me)
And those ashes of yours still holds my feelings
the ones you no longer hold
in mutual connection.
(like a match stick set alight)
This fire burnt out too soon
and you were unwilling to relight it
to suffer love with me
and this passion still lingers deep within
half my heart;
the other half you stole.
(like I can survive this fire as it is)
You've left me burning in half
you refuse to save me
to give a shit...
These sparks were once beautiful
but this fire now hurts.
(like a burn from the stove)
Why won't this all just burn?!
Why won't the fire extinguish itself
and save me from the pain you've left me in...
(just let it burn)
Why can't you burn in love with me?
In a BreakdownI break down,In a Breakdown1 year ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
into a pool of tears,
please come, take my hand,
help me face these fears,
I'm a dark, dark shadow,
broken in half,
walking through the meadows,
feel the freezing draft,
I look to the ground,
it looks back at me,
it seems that way,
it can definitely see,
as it looks through me,
a presence intrudes me,
all in all confuses me,
I twitch in the cold,
trying to shake it out,
I itch as I'm told,
I'm lost in a shout,
I fall down hard,
to the ice cold ground,
lost in the dark,
with no-one around,
In a breakdown,
with no help to stop me,
I'm so lost now,
the cost now is high,
In a breakdown,
with nothing to guide me,
how do I help me,
how do I pick myself up,
In a breakdown,
now it's hard to see,
the barriers of life,
and the barriers of death,
In a breakdown,
now it's hard to see,
exactly what I have left.
from the cold dark shadows,
a voice of metal arises,
with devices, of metal,
but so invisible,
it hurts to think it's there,
but I c
What Poetry is to MeWhat poetry is to me,What Poetry is to Me1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is an escape into a mindless sea,
A place where I can write endlessly,
About the wonders and ruins of this world I see.
What poetry is to me,
Is this I write accordingly,
The words that are crafted so beautifully,
By those who let go willingly.
What poetry is to me,
Is not the same for everybody,
That different style, whatever it may be,
Keep it going and you'll succeed.

Left in the world on your own.
To fend for yourself, find your smile,
Yes, find it, it's been quite awhile.
You can't breathe, you're being suffocated,
The world is too much to bear, you need to be relocated.
Another place, smaller, much smaller,
You can do it, there, you'll feel so much taller.
Gain your confidence, no it's been shattered, just hide,
One day you'll be able to say that you have your pride.
Pride beyond compare, you can do anything,
Is doing anything the right thing?
The kids shouting "YOLO," adults shouting "Carpe Diem!"
Wishing you could do the same, begging, pleading.
You can, dig deep, I know you can,
You were once stronger, once a better man.
Don't let them take you over, don't you dare concede,
Is this what you want? Is this what you need?
No, this is not what I want.
Who are you to say you're the one to flaunt?
It's my turn, you've played long enough,
I know this is hard, for me it is rough.
I have to put you away, it's time to go,

To call it quits.
To finally end
My restless fits.
My fits of rage.
My fits of despair.
My fits to which
No damage of can be repaired.
To have my last laugh with life
And my final fight with fate
Before I hit the dirt
And think of non more late.
To finally die...
Call it quits...
To put a rest
To my bleeding wrists.

InceptionWhen I saw youInception1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I saw myself
Lonely eyes casting down
They showed me the beauty in the simplest of things
I remember the beat like a thousand kings
Who would teach me the song
Of a million birds
Who would leap through the trees
Looking for her
Nothing is kept secret
Through the walls eyes
You keep telling
Those awful lies
If I could only bring
You to your knees
So you could see
The inception in the prettiest of things
Caring and kindness
Go a long way
When you're singing the song
Taught by a thousand ways
Passed down throughout the time
Nothing is sacred
In these medieval rhymes
Now it is time, time again
Time to release
Time to end
The tears that have been keeping
A million years of peace
Crying won't save you
Everyone knows that
But if you start breathing
You might actually find
The truth in the floor
The love in my eyes
Telling you that it is finally time
To wake up.
If my heart was made of glassI saw a shooting star and made a wish.If my heart was made of glass2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You ask me what it was but I gave you a kiss.
I asked you what you wished for and you said what was true.
You asked me to make a poem for you.
You told me to focus and don't lose sight
To do it with feelings, to write with all my might.
I agreed to your terms and went work.
And this is what I have given birth:
If my heart was made of glass it would be shattered in a million pieces,
Broken and cracked from your bitter-sweet kisses.
If my heart was made of glass it would be fragile but clear,
Breaking little by little because you are here.
If my heart was made of glass then it would be hard but very smooth,
Just like your sugar-coated words that you can always prove.
If my heart was made of glass you'd be harder to love-
The love that you gave me and was sent from above.
If my heart was made of glass would you even hear it break?
Would you hear me when I scream and see me when I fake?
If my heart was made of glass would you treasure it in yours?

It's time to get your act together, dear
So force yourself to get out of bed
Forget what all those people said
Now's the time to change your routine
Of spending all day with the laptop screen
It's time to dress up like you used to
It's time to be the brand new you
So wipe all those silly tears away
Because we're living for today
The past is long gone, it's time for change
So dress how you want, no matter how strange
And wear whatever makeup you want
You're brave enough to do what the haters can't
As long as it makes you feel good about yourself
Then what is it to do with anyone else?
Show the people that hurt you so
That you will never sink as low
Show them that you're still yourself
That you won't simply be put on the shelf
Bare your teeth and they'll get scared
Do the things they never dared
In time you'll see their jealousy
In time they'll copy you and me
You see, they live with conformity
A dangerous thing, as you can see
Break that pattern

You told me you liked someone else as you didn't want to lead me on,
That didn't work though..

cut myself sometimes over you, wishing you were mine..

When your not here though I get depressed, not knowing a single word to say
Not just to you; anyone. I feel unsociable without you..
You ignore this though..
You love someone else and it makes me uncontrollably bleed from my heart..
and tears.. I wish one day you could see my pain..
Sometimes I wish you could actually feel my pain from someone else..
Running and running to you come to me.. Into my arms I would love to hold you close..
Telling you "Its okay.. I'm here.." Making you feel better..

A dying RoseA dying Rose1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
A rose's bud,
red, pure, and true;
captured a poet's heart,
captured her through and through.
She watched in wonder,
amazed as it began to bloom;
its beauty, its promises-
a light in her greyest gloom.
Evil crouched ever so close,
pain nibbled at its leaves;
hurt swallowing her whole,
the poet, she now bereaves.
It's color she sees dimming,
it's petals marred and falling;
she pours her tears unto it,
her heart yearning, screaming, calling.
The petals drop,
one by one;
gliding gently to the floor,
in battle, death has won.
Remaining in her heart,
a rose before demise;
a young poet looks onward,
waiting for a new rose to arise.

And only one to end it all
It only takes one to cry
And one to give them a reason why
It takes a while to understand
That crying and dying go hand in hand
But they are two different things
One is pain and one is healing
The darkness of a single tear
Is always brought down crystal clear
And the shinning light of death
Can't be described in a single breath
The pride in love and the love in hate
Is just enough to make me wait
All alone and out of the light
Untill I can see hope in the night

A long-forgotten life,
Two lovers without symmetry,
A time of joy and strife.
Painful moments lost with time,
A shadowed shell of hurt,
A lullaby, a nursery rhyme,
A love that's lifetimes' worth.
A love forever kept so pure
That onlookers had wept,
A love that you could not endure,
A promise never kept.

overfed with white lies and short-lived-euphorias.
Books filled with black letters,
etching lurid images into our utmost dreams.
Veering us from the big picture...
the one we fail to paint ourselves.
Our fists much too busy with fights,
that we are bound to lose.
Too occupied in line waiting,
for creativity to be let loose like a stray dog.
As if we will find home in this pursuit of happiness...
but we only enclose each other in small rooms
with nothing but old laptops.
How many times I've guessed which letter could it be...
Which letter could it be?
To free us from havoc-stricken-thoughts?
They come and go, unending like 24 hour subway stations.
There's no break for this lonely man,
heaving every breathe of stale air
into my overused lungs...
Living in confined walls of flesh
held up with brittle paper-mache bones.
Which day is it that I will burst out from this cage of a life?
And hover with the Gods found in carefully binded bo
