Tomorrow Is Another DayHow can I dreamTomorrow Is Another Day3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When I'm hurt?
How can I smile
When I'm dirt?
How can I hope
When I'm forgotten?
How can I be
When I'm nothing?
I don't know how
But there are some things
That you just have to do
If not for yourself
Then for someone close
I don't know if these words
Will impact you, or set an impression
But take this advice
From an old cutter
It gets better, even if your life has melted like butter
You're not forgotten
You're always in someone's mind
You're not dirt
Cause to someone you shine
There is still hope for you
Even if your dream is broken
I noticed that
When the girl I loved, came even closer
Don't hurt yourself today
Cause you never know

who gave up the dream
I salute you
Don't worry, I understand
You see; I did it as well
So here's to the accountant,
who wanted to play basketball
An ode to the CEO,
who is really a dancer
Here's to the farmer,
who should have been on Broadway
Here's to you
Because I know
That when you gave it up
When you surrendered
You had your fingers

The young Earl Phantomhive has been known to have a fear of heights. Or, better phrased, people have said so.
Ciel himself does not believe this.
True, he does not like to step upon high buildings or ladders or even a chair to get that one book on the top shelf, because he is just a bit (a lot) too small. But even so, he says not to be afraid of heights:
He holds a dislike for the not-rational and considers that kind of fear to be irrational.
A fear of falling, however...

"No, I'm not going up there!"

But of course this came with a price, leaving her home, and losing her family. She could never go back home. But now where could she go? As she took one last walk down the main street of King Charles Harbour, the thought struck her like a bolt of lightning. She had orders to leave Neverland, but where would she go? For such a beautiful summer evening, she sure felt cold and lonely. Would it be better to go back to Ireland, or would it be worth trying to stay here. Everyone warmed up to Harper and her crew over the years. Everyone except James.
She kept her eyes out over the horizon, at the end of the street she saw the pier and of course, the open ocean. The wind breathed a sigh through

let me see the light!
i search so hard that it hides from me
but my eyes, heart and soul yearn
for you to let me see the light
perhaps staying still is not darkness
but safety for these times
maybe it would kill me
if i truly saw the light
if you were to allow any wish
i would not say to see the light
i would ask to live there

I try to return what you gave me.
To sacrifice myself in your honor,
To struggle through the smoke so you can rest,
To stagger across the embers and see you on the other side,
To take the heat and shield you from the sparks,
To smolder in eternal pain so you won't have to,
To have your wildfire blazing in my eyes.
But I'm a weak, fragile flame
And I'm burning out.

You don’t remember who took care of you when you were an infant, but you were on the streets by five. For a tiny human, you kicked ass, and you were street smart. You knew how to get into people’s minds, how to manipulate, how to put your fists up and pick the right fights. It’s how you stayed alive. You suppose those virtues were noticed when an older man with sunset eyes saw you sitting by a fence post, chewing at the remains of an apple you had stolen.
He knelt before you, and your eyes immediately widened. You were five, of course you were a little scared. Tons of the people in the village have beaten you, not only for stealing, but because they thought you were some demonic offspring because of your eyes. Hell, some guy tried to do an exorcism on you once.
The man in front of you was important though. Someone tall and stron

Hit me one more time
Hit me again
Push me around
On the floor
Down the stairs
It hurts less than your words
So kick me
Bruise my skin
But don’t call me names
It causes too much pain
I love you I really do
I’ll take the abuse
And be your punch bag
But please keep your words
My head can’t take it
My mind won’t survive
It destroys me.

You stay up until you hear rosters crowing from nearby farms. You don’t sleep. Rather just lie there, staring at your ceiling that is slowly growing brighter as the sun comes up in the distance. Just when you start to doze off, a loud screech makes your eyes split wide open.
Ari is on the end of your bed, having came in from the open window. She’s bobbing her head up and down, up and down, crowing at you again and again. Annoyed, you sit up and swat at her until she just shuts up.
You climb out of bed, getting dressed for the day. You can see Jade from the window, getting lessons from some of the knights. All princesses should be able to properly defend themselves.
Down in the small dining room, your father is there, but he’s already eaten his breakfast. He looks at you when you come in, and you try to offer him a small smile. You know you should wait until you question it, but you can’t help it as you immediately ask, “

Can you teach me how to dance
Show me each step and stance,
I want to dance with you away
Into a brighter day,
Let us waltz across the room
Just like we're bride and groom,
Let us dance over the sea
Across the stars and moonbeams,
Let us sway into the night
Where we're painted in silver light,
Let us dance through the fire
As we make a path of desire,
Let us sway into the stars
A tango set us free from pain,
And samba brings us through the rain
Let us dance until the end
Forever I'll hold your hand,
The only rhythm that we need
Is your steady heart beat,
The songs of love only we hear
Tenderly in each others ear,
And we both know it is true
As we both whisper, "I love you."

do not stutter, do not shout, nor hold your tongue
don't fight, don't lose
be not stagnate- nor move
don't think on these thoughts
don't dwell on my words
It's a call to action
that's passed words
it's a call, it's a plea- do the absurd
do more than you can
do more than you shall
be great, more than fine
more than the image congected in minds.
Its hard, it's beyound the insane
but when you do it
not if but when
you won't get wealth nor fame
but somthing better
that drifts on the wind
and melts with the rain
what's casted in time

He heard her giggle from her hiding place and stopped for a moment. “Well,” he said as he turned on his heel and began to walk the other way. “I suppose she’s just too clever for me.” He pulled out a chair and sank into it. “Perhaps I will never see her again. How sad that will be!”
In the corner of his eye, he saw a tiny pair of hands lift up the edge of the the tablecloth and a curious, concerned face begin to peer out. Dropping to his knees, he pulled the cloth up the rest of the way. “Ha! Found you!”

Tiens... Il me semblait bien, ce matin,
Avoir pensé trop fort.
Une idée après l'autre,
Malgré tous mes efforts,
Je pensais, ressassais,
"Elle est rouge, c'est dégueu!"
Trop d'introspection, monsieur l'Inspecteur
L'inconscient a dû heurter son subconscient
Il n'a pas vu venir le danger,
Il était bien trop absorbé
Par ses contrariétés.

Il m'avait bien semblé, pourtant, approcher une lumière,
Mais en y repensant, j'ai dû m'cogner à un lampadaire.

C'était juste l'ambulance qui m'renversait, pov' vieux.
Ah ouais, on tire pas sur l'ambulance, mais celle-là, vingt ans plus tôt, j'l'aurais bien défoncée, avec son chauffard bourré.

A Hierarchy lost in translation,
laid out before us, but so forgotten.
Lord forgive us our folly,
Such great division,
for reasons many.
To my human eyes,
the scorching history,
wayward amid all anarchy.
Fractions to masses,
to lead and wage war.
The eternal struggle,
to which we are oblivious,
but so highly involved.
Lord forgive me,
as I fear my efforts are in vain.

Best Ever FriendBest Ever Friend4 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
We used to be strangers,
Then we became friends.
Now we are Besties,
Now we know, our friendship would never end.
We took the time to know each other,
More than we ever thought we could.
We learned to understand our thoughts,
Learned to hold on for all the bad and good.
We did get mad at times.
And at times, we did fight.
But those moments ended soon enough,
Making the good memories shine bright.
Even when we said something else,
We learned to know what we mean.
The knowledge that we have each other,
Gave us the strength to fight the unseen.
We learned to share our secrets,
Together, learned to laugh n cry.
Talking our heart out never felt easy,
But we did and didn't even have to try.
And then, time did make a lot of changes,
There was nothing we could do.
But what didn't change in all these years,
Is the friendship between me and you.
You were the Best friend I've ever had,
You still are the same to me.
And we will always have each other,
No matter how far we have to be.

Stars made of nightmares and skies made of fears
Hearts made of glass and a home built of tears
Cries made of silence and words made of knives
Dreams of the struggle to simply survive
Souls made of paper and minds made of flames
She is a piece of their loveliest game
No longer can she feel more than disgust
Even a rainbow does turn into dust…
