What do you think of me?
Are you scared of me?
How should I kill you?
Why are you crying?
Your dying soul
Is your life really worth saving?
When do you want to die?
Whenever I get bored with you
Where will you go when you die?
Remain a ghost on this miserable Earth
Are you ready to die?
My blade cuts you
Your screams echo in my ears
Your lifeless body lays in a pool of shimmering blood

NakedOne night,I woke up.Naked2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I looked at the moon. It was full of light. I screamed.The shine of the blade from the distance attracted my eyes.It was shining so beautifully on the moonlight. I took a gun,put it to my head,I cried,even God couldn't stop the tears. But I couldn't....I didn't shoot myself.
The road was calling me. I went out through the door. I walked alone,the wind was my only friend. My white dress was carried by the wind. Roads were empty. I left my cross behind that door. I am tired of empty prayers,won't believe in them anymore. DON'T BEG. STOP. I don't have the strength,have already lost my faith.
And then I saw a river. Wanted to touch its coolness. I took my clothes off,threw it into that river,and let the moon shine on me. But then,the moon was gone and I was left naked with the sun bites on my skin.
The night came again and my moon was touching my body again. It was dark. I sold my body to the moonlight,I sold it to the night. I lost my soul. They took it long time ago.

BoredI'm sitting at home, once againBored2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Wondering if this day will ever end
I've done all the housework, I have no more chores
And I'm starting to realize my life is a bore
I've vacuumed the carpets, I've washed all the floors
I've dusted the shelves, and I've cleaned the glass doors
The cats have been combed, the toys put away
Seriously God, will there be an end to this day?
I've done all the laundry for the entire home
I've sewn all the things that need to be sewn
All the trash it out, not a stray paper in sight
And all the dishes have been put away for the night
Mother has no needs, she's resting in her chair
And the rest of the house looks incredibly bare
And as I sit down and plug in the computer cored
I realize in my head, I'm incredibly bored

I hope that they are only a dream
They say that nothing good shall last
I will fight on their behalf
Evil words and giggles shake
But never do I laugh
Shall I give them a pleasant tune
I taint my hands with misery
All that I do is for noon
Ask me to smile and say my name
I do not wish to quarrel
Nothing into mind came
Watch me as I disappear forever
Into the light of a distant flower
All because they pulled the lever

My left hand aches for your right one?
I feel cold when I think of you?
I cry during love songs?
I smile when I see things that remind me of you?
My heart pounds whenever the phone rings?
It grows heavy when someone else greets me?
I miss you so much?
I guess it's because I love you.

Brick by BrickI'm stuck in the dark,Brick by Brick2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Walls on all sides,
It's a cage of bricks,
And I'm all out of tricks
I can't hide from the truth anymore.
I try bashing away
At those brick walls around me,
A suffocating sickness
It's inside my very soul!
Then I hear a dreadful whispering
Come from behind the wall
"You can't hide from the truth anymore "
Suddenly I see a light - a new dawn
Comes beyond the wall, and through
A crack - a chasm bright, casts light
Upon a link within the wall that's
Weak, a leak I might exploit,
Or so the whispers say to me,
Urging me to break free, and cleaving
Through my doubts, I shout:
"I don't want to hide from the truth anymore!"
Brick by brick I tore the wall
To pieces, infinitely small,
And, finished, I found myself free,
And though it scared the life from me
The whispering in my heart said softly:
"You deserve to be loved I deserve to be free "

"Welcome to the Axiom, Auto! I am the Buy n' Large CEO, Shelby Forthright! I hope that you will be an excellent Autopilot for this starliner! I heard that you were one of the best!
"Yes, sir. I am ready to serve the BnL Corporation as the Axiom autopilot!"
The autopilot saluted the BnL CEO. First day. First day to get up on the job on the starliner, Axiom. "The jewel of the BnL fleet", as the commercial called it.
Auto walked into the halls, accompanying Shelby Forthright to the Bridge, the place of command and control of the ship, where the autopilot and the captain made sure that all systems were running perfectly, and rules were not to be broken. The halls of chrome and light echoed with the footsteps of the two, with their reflections fully visible on the floor as they boarded the elevator to the Bridge.
Once the two got there, Auto met his captain, James Reardon, and shook his gloved hand with his own.
"It's good to see you, Captain Reardon," Auto stated almost instantly. "I

My heart hurts
My eyes water
My soul is scarred
My skin is a concrete wall,
Protecting the porcelain doll within
I don't want to be this way.
I want happiness
I want joy
I want to wake up smiling
I want to go to sleep content
I want a day filled with real laughter,
Not that I force.
People laugh at me
They say that I'm young and I will be happy eventually,
And I believe that is true
But that doesn't mean I want to spend until then feeling this way

misinterpreting the lightning,
A tumult of attempts, many
mumblings while we burn - each time
most is lost, some survives.
At the whistle of illusion that awakens,
day drops dream on me. I am
thick with swerve: If there are giants
there is a world they walk on.
And for the final faith
to be an inversion: We are
the electricity lunging toward the sky.

Ignorance Is BlissHow I envy foolsIgnorance Is Bliss1 year ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Those born without the
Eyes to see the darkness; the
Ears to hear the lies; the
Skin to feel the chafing cold; the
Sense to realize:
There's darkness all around us,
Lecherous and black.
We lead a meaningless existence.
Bitter, I turn back.
How I envy fools
Living life, never knowing
The storm on the horizon;
Her clouds fill up the skies.
They do not see the warnings,
Nor hear the gentle "sigh"
Of the wind that's brewing.
They do not feel the rain.
Their never-knowing state
Is all that keeps them sane.
How I envy fools
They know nothing of pain
Will they ever find it,
The truth that I now know?
The sky is torn with violent light
The stormy gales blow.
The tempest is upon us,
But still their eyes are blind.
The lucky fools will never know
