Listen to my cries
Feel my pain
See your neglect
Understand what you've put me through
Hear me roar
My anger bouncing off the wall
My sadness ringing in
Your deaf ears
Can't you hear me
Do you just not care
Listen to me
Don't walk away
I'm not finished
If only you'd hear me
If only I could make you see
Why won't you listen
Why don't you care
Do you not see the tears
You're the one that's made to care
It's your job
Why can't you just listen
Maybe you can't hear me
I'm just not loud enough

A Series of HaikusThe rising sunA Series of Haikus2 years ago in Haiku & Eastern More Like This
Painting the sky with colors
Welcoming new day
Turning orange, red, and pink
Buds come to life
Sweet aroma in the air
Birds are chirping
Trees shedding their leaves
Yellow leaves crunch below feet
Changing of seasons
White snowflakes falling
Icicles hanging from roof
Cold winter morning
Cocoon hangs from branch
Will soon emerge a butterfly
Beginning new life
Light summer showers
Brings out art work in the sky
Ribbons of color
White mists of beauty
Deafening sound of thunder
True force of nature
Wretched PitWelcome to this placeWretched Pit2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
This happy little abode
Nestled between here and there
Nowhere and someplace.
Dark skies constantly loom overhead,
Shrouding the land below.
So come on, come on, come on,
Follow us down the rabbit hole.
Fair warning, though:
Once you enter, you never come back.
Lose your individuality here.
Let the Flow make the decisions for you.
What? It's fine? Okay, come on then.
Come on come on come on.
Follow and obey, as we strip you down.
Don't squirm or make a sound.
We'll play with you first,
Touch your body, splice your holes,
Dress you up real nice, ah yes!
Now you're the perfect plaything.
Go out now, deary,
Walk the talk, speak the show,
Deceive others and learn to lie,
Blacken the blue skies for us!
And when you're ready,
We'll teach you all you need to know,
But will we, really?
That's not for your ears, hon.

Tread harshly on my nightmares
Make all my fears disappear
Hold me close, my rainstopper
So I won't be alone...anymore
A night like tonight-
It'll be alright
Tears seem to fly-
Within glistening light
Relieve thy tired heart
Put thy pain in my arms
Allow those woes to depart
The strong are the weak ones / Once the damage is finally done
Crack and shatter my soul / My protected tears are no more
Don't let my sympathy be wasted / My morals won't become faded
I'm leaving my heart open / Don't let yourself worsen
I will always care / I will always be here
This is what I will always be / The vanquisher of your agony
A day like today
You'll be okay
Bathe in this sunshine
Doubts will ignite
Recover thy power
You survived t
Jenga Is a Dangerous GameJenga Is a Dangerous Game2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Oh, please don't use words like "forever" and "always".
I get a little dizzy when you say them,
And my careful, precarious stack of hopes could fall down at any minute.
Though I don't and do wish you wouldn't,
You build it up, nourish it, make it grow
Each time you are kind to me.
Add a block for every smile.
Cause my heart to fly, my soul to sing;
Make me want to dance with you until the music ends...
But please, don't use words like "forever".
My tower is too tall, and I can't afford
To let it collapse on me, too.

Through the cold and bitter snow
Even if this world will turn us insane
No matter how much pain
We will leave behind the problems of the past
Facing the future at a long last
New problems will surely arise
But when I look at your pretty eyes
That's the moment when I just know
Together we will always pull through
Because I love you
Free Spirit Fail SafeFree Spirit Fail Safe2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Unhinged, the floodgates collapse
The waters weighed so heavily on them that in the dark of night
do they unwillingly liberate the transparent stillborn
unto the dry soil once adjacent to the gates.
Two clocks tick, their gears turning at the uneven tempo
Unwound, rusting to a screeching halt on the command of the flood.
Time stops at the hinder, And neutrality dies on impact.
What a sight as I close my eyes,
Late at night when energy dies.
Taken to flight my psyche then flies.
Do as one might, the cold sweat brings about my cries.
Fighting my fight, in where my imagination lies
The withered flowers ashen and in bloom
Be my soul to cower, from the ever impending doom.
Two clocks tick, one my own and the other my fate.
The flood arrives to consume
and to the end does the time die and go black...
Open my eyes to the dark if night
An abyss before me to lay back down...
down where the floodgates come unhinged
and my imagination lies.
Your DestinySick and tired of pleasing the same man every nightYour Destiny2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
But don’t want to deal with having another fight
Lost your wings that would allow you to take flight
Dead in the world that ignores your every word
Befriended the ghosts that have suffered your fate
Still you realize that you’re far too late
You cry in my arms as you accept your destiny
Lost in the charms filled with ecstasy
Crushed by the sorrow sugar-coated by love
Trapped in a box with no escape to the world
Your hunt for freedom is little more than a dream
That you already know is forever out of your grasp
Heartbroken and lonely you tried to take your life
Only to stop when you realized that you couldn’t find a knife
The whispers of your friends are slowly disappearing
You wonder why you fall in love with a man with no soul
Now there is a reason for you not to love
Build up a wall and protect your own soul
You cry in my arms as you accept your destiny
Lost in the charms filled with ecstasy
Crushed by the sorrow s
Essence of DespairConcealed in a crown of azure flames,Essence of Despair3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Lies fester in the presence of bitter'd honey
While salty torrents of sorrow resonate
With an ominous whisper of pure despair
A lantern pierces through the frigid shadows
With the light of a thousand strong,
But is quickly extinguished
By the tragedy of a thousand more.
The heavens are ablaze and forsaken
As the blood of angels soak the earth
While the mortals weep dry and desolate
For the collapse of their divine guardians.
The tales of old unravel before their eyes
As they succumb to their fears and follies,
Dyeing the streets in a wicked crimson
As the wind turns silent once more...

Ahah. Yes I am. I'm just tired.
Tired of? Come on, talk to me.
Sigh. You don't want to know.
Yes, yes I do. I care about you. What's the problem?
Trust me. You don't want to know.
Fine. I drag it again and again everyday on my back.
It attacks me,
Sometimes once a month,
Sometimes once in a week,
Sometimes once a day.
It ushers me,
To be braver than I am,
To do more than I possibly ever could.
And I'm okay with that, sometimes, even glad.
I feed it, I tend to it, I nurture "it's" ways, and give in all the time.
It requires too much of me, for the only way to feed it is through my blood and tears, for that is what it requires to bloom. The worst part of it I hear you ask?
I don't even try to stop it.
You see, It leaves these marks, these straight lines, about five tones darker than my actual skin colour, and they happen to love my ankles.
What? What are you trying to tell me?
What the hell do you think?
Monday Night Sabotagei've seen the vowels andMonday Night Sabotage3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
consonants battle upon your tongue,
a tongue-tied smile i kissed for
breakfast every 10'o clock weekday.
i've seen you regurgitate my love
onto Monday night prostitutes,
those splintered, bloody lips
smearing disease all over my
and your investigative eyes,
cooking my innocence until
you tasted adultery, but
i wanted to see the
continents come together again,
so that you have no where
I want you breathless by the time i find you.
WistfullyI want to make loveWistfully2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
To your thoughts
I want to caress your secrets
Like what they are
Under our covers
With unlimited tenderness
And a touch of shame
I want to reach down your throat
And pull out your desires,
String them along
One by one
Until I can hold them in my hands
And admire their shine
I want to crush your dreams
Under the certainty of the future
And so deeply
They turn into diamonds
And when you speak your words
I can admire the facets we cut together
I want to know you intimately
In ways not spoken of
Outside of a poet's dream
And to sleep inside them
Until I sleep in your arms.
Paper LimbsThe compliance of paper limbsPaper Limbs2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
led her here.
Plunged into a sea in the sky;
painted in ink blots of possibility
but stained with the tears
of a paper crane.
A sliver of lilac moon
burned scars into hazy eyes.
Counting coloured lines
on a backdrop of failed love affairs;
Watching bleeding dawns
and the birth of stars
through a pane of tissue paper
Seeking nothing but the thrill
of cheating fate,
ignoring plans laid out by gods
who fly on silk wings;
Resisting the simplicity
and full stops.
Her world is a road map
marked in crimson stars
and drawn in dotted lines
that lead to something—
But she'll walk there
on paper limbs.
