To My DoomTrapped in the hands of despair,To My Doom4 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.
Puppets Don't Last ForeverThey dance and sing at your finger tips,Puppets Don't Last Forever4 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. Expectations4 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 Alone4 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.
A Song's DreamA precious voice that sings strong and clear,A Song's Dream4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Racing over time itself so mankind can hear,
Pleading over and over it rings like a bell,
So that humanity will not be dragged to hell.
To protect and serve, forcing itself into fear
It strives to be a song worthy of man to hear.
But the song was ignored, despite it's effort.
Society fell right down to it's hateful dirt.
And so the song died, silence reigned supreme.
Or maybe everything was merely just a dream.
Dear MomentDear Moment,Dear Moment3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I wish I could freeze you in time.
I wish I could put you in a bottle
and carry you around,
knowing happiness is never far away.
And when life becomes too much,
I could just open you and let
the warmth of the memory flood my being,
pushing away all the sadness until
you've enveloped me.
Until there's nothing left but you.
But when I put you away,
sadness will be lingering at the
edges of my spirit,
until it's extinguished the flame
and claims my soul again.
They Broke MeThe girl sitting alone,They Broke Me4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Facing the wall in the corner,
One walks up to her,
puts his hand on her shoulder.
She turns and stares blankly,
and she whispers faintly,
"They broke me."
Shunned by society
Abused by her peers
Now she sits quietly.
Soothing words fall on deaf ears.
