Flight From EvilMy hands were made for a world of purpose,Flight From Evil3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But I live in a society that brings pain.
Memories haunt the souls of the pure,
And no one who is living remains.
To escape this nightmare would be a tragic flaw,
But a corrupted world cannot be saved.
I'm afraid I am a coward, I left my body behind,
To be free I abandoned a world evil has slain.
To My DoomTrapped in the hands of despair,To My Doom3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Its dark filth crawled in my skin,
I screamed, could anybody hear?
I was so desperate to live again.
The very taint of it drove me mad,
Promise of power overwhelming,
A sickly disease that I always had,
To my doom I was forever falling.

A feeling I've been suppressing is finally bursting inside of me.
You still throw your words around, each one you consider a punch.
But I deflect them as if air and you easily go down, how weak.
I can't believe you of all people tried to restrict my freedom.
Can't you realize it? My power? I am not yours. I am free.
Puppets Don't Last ForeverThey dance and sing at your finger tips,Puppets Don't Last Forever3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A soft whisper is flowing from your lips,
Being attached to your strings of lies,
They have to follow the plans you devise.
What a pitiful life it is you must lead,
To be controlling others your only need.
Manipulating the world you seem so clever,
Will you learn puppets don't last forever?
33. ExpectationsI saw a girl today.33. Expectations3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
A girl who's face was painted with a smile, and who shrouded herself in bright yellows. She embraced the sunlight, if only to hide herselves in the shadows it created.
This girl lived in a facade of happiness, for her hair and eyes were dark as night, and her smile was made of nothing but mystery.
And the girl was stupid. She cared for everyone who happened to cross her path, be it a true friend, an enemy, or even just a stranger she would see on the street. Every glance made her fall in love, and she never forgot someone who once managed to capture her attention.
Because of this, the girl lived in the past. She was forever daydreaming of the people that she had met along the path of life, be it a childhood friend or the boy who had cut her hair once. She was always witnessing beauty and perfection, and capturing it only in memories. No matter how many times these beautiful strangers hurt her, though, she never stopped setting herself up for pain.
She never stopped
Insanely AloneI was surrounded by shadow, with no escape possible.Insanely Alone3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Shivering in fear, I closed myself off from the world.
I was alone, with life's responsibilities my prison.
But out of that same darkness came a new feeling.
Hope. I had never experienced such hope before.
How could I have hope in a world with such despair?
And trapped in this never ending night, I laughed.
I laughed at my foolishness. I laughed at my idiocy.
Laughing at the shadows, myself, I laughed insanely.
And suddenly, a shining light appeared, blinding me.
It called for me to fight, to seek it out once more.
But still laughing, I rejected it. It was too late.
In the solitude of darkness, destined to be alone.
I was already insane before shadow even descended.
He Loves Me NotA rose sat on the table,He Loves Me Not3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
He promised it would never die,
And when it was worn and withered,
I did not cry.
It's not what I expected,
I knew the rose would not grow,
Into a lumbering, majestic tree,
That in the wind would flow.
The petals fell, one by one,
Browned under the burning sun,
Scattered across the table and chairs,
Worn and withered without a care.
And when the rose finally snapped,
I let out a deep sigh,
The weight of the world,
Broke its' neck,
But I did not cry.
I already knew what to think,
When I saw your face,
But I learned how not to speak,
When it wasn't my time or place.
I played your little game,
And we had a bit of fun,
But now we're driving in the other lane,
And all is said and done.
My shoulders are turned in,
The petals fall from my hand,
The ocean washes them away,
Down on the sand.
I know this wasn't planned,
And it didn't last too long,
But it's hard to pretend,
That I am still strong.
A rose sat on a grave,
He promised it would never die,
And when it was wor
