Poor Man's GoldHush the youngest children, for the demon in the skiesPoor Man's Gold8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Treasuring the very thought of anyone's demise
Glitter fades to black and shining moonlight fades to dust
Every cruel man's wonderland is built of poor man's trust
Tragic, empty melodies and blood beneath the air
Fearlessly escape the wind and drown without a care
Treasure death as platinum, as silver and as gold
Every cruel man's wonderland is built of poor man's gold...

The baby that I never got to see.
And maybe, just maybe that baby would love us, too
If only that baby got to be.
I love the little baby that was never able to smile
Never even able to survive.
And maybe that baby would have a life worth living
If only that baby was alive.
And maybe that baby had mommy's blue eyes
And daddy's smile, and grandma's tight hugs.
And honestly, there's no way to describe that little baby
And no way to describe the way it was loved.

Stolen from the LightThere was a girlStolen from the Light9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
an innocent girl
until the dark stole her
from the light
And the dark broke her
It washed the colour from her eyes
and replaced the green with gold
Her world bent over backwards
because she no longer saw the light
only the dark
And then everyone shut her out
When she smiled, it was no longer an innocent smile
Nothing could hurt her anymore
Because if it did
She’d hit back
And then the dark toyed with her
She played with men
She played with their minds
until they broke too
She was no longer innocent
And then she gave up a part of herself
She stopped feeling one thing there was left to feel;
Because she finally accepted
That the dark had stolen her
The dark had stolen her from the Light
Give Me Your PainWhen i see you sufferGive Me Your Pain2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I can't help but wish
Wish I can take it away
Place my hand on your shoulder
Let your pain channel from you to me
Take your pain away
Make it my own
To spare you
Spare you of what you don't deserve
Let me suffer
So that you may breath easy
The weight on the world no longer upon you
But on me now
I'll bare all of this
Just to see you smile
A smile worth all this anguish
I ask for nothing in return
Just for you to be happy
Love i would cherish more than anything
That would be all i ask
I love you
Care for you
I wish i can take this pain from you
When I think about you, I remember it all wrong.When I think of that first day, I will always remember the air as being too warm, and your clothes being wrinkled, your hair a complete mess. I remember how your nerves had your every sentence starting with “uhm” and how I hated indecisiveness and you couldn’t make up your mind, and I remember thinking I could do better without you. Now, I know that first impressions aren’t quite as important as they tell you every time you open that front door with your mismatched socks and complimentary sarcasm, armed with a crooked smile and bad grammar. Because if that were true, I would have said hello and goodbye in the same sentence. Hell, if that were true I never would have loved you.When I think about you, I remember it all wrong.6 months ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

And I have a scar by my left eye.
I’m not allowed to smile, though
And I’m not allowed to cry.
I think my right arm’s broken
But shh, don’t tell my dad.
He doesn’t like to worry bout me
When he’s already mad.
I have a burn on my left wrist
From when he pushed my arm
Against the stove, the hot, hot stove
And did a bit of harm.
I have a bear, a teddy bear.
He doesn’t have a name.
He makes me better every time
I’m feeling hurt and shame.
Today, my dad came home kind of late
A beer still in his hand.
I closed my eyes and waited.
He screamed, he shouted, and…
Well, my name is Mary Starr
And this is how I died.
But daddy always loved me.
And daddy always lied.

That's all I'll ever be
Once you've learnt that
Defining fact about me.
You'll call me mad
Assume that I'm sad
And that I want
You'll check my arms
Only matters if you can see
But I can hide them
All over me.
You'll think I'm sick
Sick in the head
And that makes me feel
Like I want to be dead.
I don't do it
I don't do it
For a mention
I don't do it
I do it because of
That it's cast over me.

but I was jealous of heaven.
She spoke through her bones.
She: a beautiful decay
draped along my apartment,
& the mess of my mouth.
When she left,
I cried big ugly tears
for the First Aid of her
I needed Draco.
I needed her.
“Is it sweet?” She meows even still
with all my self-doubt.
This thing, I must not feed it-
As I still long to leave galaxies
along the length of her entire bed.

What if storms flood the towns?
Or if superior beings take over the Earth
or we fall in giant cracks on the ground?
What if the planet becomes remote,
everywhere, the purest desolation,
the human race about to perish
without any single chance of salvation?
I'll still have, in my recollections,
the remembrance of your smile,
I would have a reason to be happy
when the world becomes hostile.
I'll think about all the moments
you've spent close to me,
when it seemed to be the end of the world,
and you were the light that I could see.
I'll simply close my eyes...
Earthquake? Tornado? Lava?
I wouldn't have a clue!
What if the world ends today?
My life's been complete, since the day that I met you.

Well, Love, I’m telling you twice
Drop that lighter and drop that knife
Throw away your blades
And get rid of those pills
Untighten the knot in your rope
And take a step away from that cliff
Don’t let yourself drown in your own thoughts
Don’t let those voice take control over your own fucking mind
Remember that you are not alone in this
Remember we’re the army of the broken soldiers
Standing together, standing tight
Fighting against our very own suicide
Every 40 seconds someone beautiful leaves this cruel place
Every 40 seconds a little bit of hope fades
Please promise me you won’t be one of them
Promise me you’ll stand up and fight

counting my toes/weighing my bones
stick me in the eye, maybe it'll sting
or maybe just pass through
like flies in amber before it
I remember her plucking the strings
pulling until her heart quivered and quavered
lump sitting in her throat, catching at her voice
only the brave ones
Take me for a ride on your back,
lean over until your chin touches the ground
Cough up another excuse, then lie
sprawled at their feet
begging for the reason as to why
you can't be you.
(or did it ever even cross your mind?)
Whirligigs abound, baubles that
glint and shine and bounce
with your hair, copper
or blonde or brunette or inkwell hair
raging in the ocean's depths
how long until
she hits bottom?
