The island I wish to beShe's on that island... she's on that beachThe island I wish to be2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Beneath that moon... so far from reach
Beside those waves... so deep and blue
Just like her eyes... so warm and true
She's standing there... along that shore
She makes it perfect... and so much more
Wish I were that island... wish I were that sand
I'd caress her skin... and kiss her hand
Wish I were that moon... wish I were that glow
I'd shine so bright... on the angel below
Wish I were those waves... that gently roll
I'd take her in... and warm her soul
Wish I were that place... wish I were there
Wish I were with her... wish life was fair
I shouldn't wish... for things not meant
I should only wish... that she stays content

seeking her lover damned…
And a myriad of talons will seed the sky — a primeval calling
of necromancy and lust untamed
Upon her breath, I whispered softly in winged-caress:
"cast thy nightscapes unto the ache of gossamer streams"
So she closed her eyes and her demon lover hungered long..

yet choose to read my words with care,
for when you visit you will find,
the deepest secrets from my mind.
You'll witness things I love and hate,
perhaps I'll speak of someone's fate,
for what I write is not a ruse
or something only to confuse.
It's just me, myself and why,
I have no reason here to lie.
My heart is torn but it's still true
and when you visit I'll know it's you.

PeaceThus far my life has been filled mostly with unequalled painPeace4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Despite what I say all the time, it is a wonder that I am not insane
One of the things I have gained, is an appreciation for smaller things
It taught me how fleeting life is, so I embrace what the future brings
These thoughts consume me while I am sat here on a manmade shore
I do not truly wish for things to be over, first the world I must explore
I think it has made me a better man, the pain with which I have grown
It has made me able to appreciate nature, like now sat here on stone
Do not mistake my meaning; the pain in my heart is not diminished
Though I am comforted knowing this part of my life is almost finished
I am sure of this as I am going to go to a professional for real advice
More pain and vulnerability to a stranger I am sure will be the price
For now even though I am sure that my pain in the near future will increase
Sitting on the shore, looking over the water with thoughts of you, I find peace
Verifiedsometimes fear is a little black monster that waits in your closetVerified2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
nursing all your skeletons back to health, tempting you
with tightly wound lies like bitter almond candies
and compliance is second only to believing that maybe, just maybe,
the words slithering out of its mouth (then around your throat,
choking you when you are finally alone enough to be convinced truth
is objective) are something real, something worth believing in
unlike all the other things that have forsaken you,
there's a certain comfort in knowing that fear is
a constant, it is a shadow, it is as concrete as the bags
you carry excess time in under your eyes; but it is still
silent, hidden, it is something only you can bear
like a cross sewn into your skin to remind you
you were born to sin, you were built to fail.
everyone always knew you were too weak to succeed because
they had planned out your mistakes long before you knew why
they said "life isn't fair," long before you knew what it was
to wake up crying for p
OutcastI'm an outcast in a world filled with hopes,Outcast4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I could be like you, a dreamer,
someone smiling constantly,
a friend that never takes too much to heart.
I am a reminder to society, not everyone is perfect;
society is flawed and most of all,
society is fatal to all.
I could be a witness that life to you has been alright;
but i know that it won't last, 'cause you'll fall to the hard, cold ground,
and I'll be there to help you back up.
I am who many forget and few remember,
a shadow in the daylight,
a small piece of ice on a summer day.
I could be so many things that you want me to be;
but I'm not going to change, not for you or society,
I am me, even it's that an outcast lingering the shadows.
Brought BackCan you break down my walls?Brought Back4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The moat carefully dug
Around this block of ice
I call it death
You call it a heart
All I can ever give
Careful care you bring
A warm feeling of death
A beautiful shot of bliss
Darkness beyond the galaxies
How can you find light within me?
No one can ever find me
Within all these dirty tears
An unbreakable wall
No fire can thaw this cold
What is this?
So hot and pure
An arrow of hot white hope
I feel it piercing my heart
I feel the blood around
Is this what it is like
To be alive?
Oh thoughts of suicide how could you lie...
Telling me there was no life?
Solitude shattered down
Like broken glass turned to dust
The moat plugged up
The monsters caged up
Death's twin lifting me up
And I can breath fully again
A blind cured from the blindness
No more gray-scale dreams
This night is morning again
Oh where was I?
How could I be gone so long?
Is this what it's like
To be brought back from the void?
So how could you break down my wall?

Small and thin
I bow over
I wreek of sin
Some days I blossom
Some days I fly
Some days I wither
Some days I die
I feel alone
In a field of dust
I just can't bloom
So I just rust
But flowers can't rust
They are living things
But I'm not living
I'm metallic, I'm a spring
I can spring into happiness
When I'm open every hour
I can spring into sadness
When I'm closed, and sour
Some days I'm bright
A pink or red hue
Some days I'm dull
And a darker shade of blue
I wish I could choose
Between the two
But until then
I wait for a day anew
Because I am a flower
In a field of dust
That just can't blossom
So I sit and rust

Where stars search for new gleam
The crossed paths' power to distract
Is unfortunately unseen
Innocent strength of new creation
Is anemic for credulity
Newborn touches the monster in dreams
Tomorrow it's reality
Yesterday would follow but
Today are millenniums away
Gray the hair so near the past
But there's nothing you can change
Running in circles
Still standing on the start of the game
Though today everything's so different
It's too late to reinstate
Time escapes through the gaps of what we see
And don't discern till dreams are jammed
Today is still infinity
And tomorrow your wishes dead

He cried himself to sleep every night,
and the rings around his eyes didn’t
match his soft-spoken words,
and Shame tailed him like a shadow;
his closest and only friend.
I knew a boy.
He scribbled jagged promises
on the inside of his arms
the backs of his knees
so he wouldn’t forget,
wouldn’t get too close.
I knew a boy.
But not anymore.
Getting WorseI pick up the blade,Getting Worse2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
And set it on my wrist,
The world starts to fade,
When I know I can't resist.
That's just the start,
And it doesn't stop there,
It breaks my heart,
As I find out you care.
But the things get worse,
I start hitting my head,
Until it hurts,
And I fall on my bed.
My head hits the wall,
Then I fall,
To the floor.
Air chokes my breath,
As I struggle to move,
It smells like death,
And I start to sooth.
I'm sorry I did this,
It's my weakness,
You are what I'm going to miss,
When I go into darkness.

i would never number the poems
i wrote about myself because that
would be like ticking off the days
until my breakdown;
i was a moth, unapologetically throwing myself
at any gleam of hope; wasting my wings
on industrial promises
colors always felt much more
appropriate for the purple boiling
beneath my heart and the pallid
purposelessness of my head,
but i was born into a colorless world--
no one sees me behind the metallic scars
of my skin and iron grating of my voice against
the grain; no one sees me as more than
gray regret or monochrome mistakes,
no one sees me but
all i ever wanted was for a
fallen god with feathered heels
to believe in me: to pray upon
the monuments i built for
broken dreams and to baptize me
in his tainted tears,
i just want him to be real. more
than anything, i want to be real, i want
to be more than an imaginary friend
to various mental limitations; i want
to trade my liquid skin [evaporating]
for a chance to be
i am a moth and you are the lighthouse
PerfectionWhat is perfection and what is not?Perfection10 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Does anybody know that besides god?
Is someone out there who can tell me?
Or do I have to do die and ask god, maybe?
Question over question flying through my brain.
If I don’t find perfection, will my life be in vain?
Everyone had flaws and makes mistakes.
Maybe I have to lower the stakes.
I’m looking for one, just one perfect thing only.
But as time goes by even I get lonely.
Cold and empty, but beating is my heart.
I want perfection, even if it’s just a shard!
Moving on as the time passes me by.
No perfection, no matter how far I fly.
Each and every place, no perfection there.
Can humans be perfect and worlds rightful heir?
Now I am standing close to the edge, full of fear.
Suddenly it comes to me, I smile and see it clear.
No matter how and where you grow up, you are perfection.
Because you are only you and not someones copy or reflection.
