So much time, so little to doI have seen the beauty of a dove beneath the skiesSo much time, so little to do2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have told the harshest truths, and I have told some lies
I have seen a child cry into its mother's arms
I have been that weeping girl who held onto self-harm
I have heard the laughter of a man about to die
I have seen the anger resting deep within their eyes
I have been the victim of my own disgusting thoughts
I have seen the best of people slowly start to rot
I have felt the heartache; I have seen a love go blue…
So much time is left to spare, but so much less to do…

So much to be sad about, so much that could be
Going wrong for everyone, going wrong for you.
Smiley face, smiley face, don't you feel it too?
Sad face, sad face, can't you ever tell?
So much could be going great, going oh so well
Sad face, sad face, can't you ever see?
Life is spend much better when your thinking thoughts of glee.
Mind, oh mind, why can't you agree?
Thinking everything at once is slowly killing me...
Alone and UnseenAlone and Unseen2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The chill in the breeze,
The frost on the ground,
Crisp on a moonlit night.
A young boy's figure
Glides through the streets,
His breath a clouded fog.
Eyes like crystals,
Hair like snow,
He walks with staff in hand.
Alone in the world,
Unseen by all,
He strides like a ghost through the town.
Young children seen
Through a window pane,
Bask in the glow of the hearth.
Unseen goes the boy
Who stares unnoticed and lost
At the joy before his eyes.
A tentative move,
A soft hand to the glass,
Which freezes beneath his touch.
He turns away,
To the dark of the night
And raises his head to the sky.
A tear flows unseen,
Silent and soft,
To be dashed on the frozen earth.
Calling winds forth,
Around him to swirl,
His feet lift off from the ground.
Invisible and alone,
He flies higher until
He melds with the sky and the stars.
"I want to be seen
And I want to be heard."
Only one hears this desperate boy's cry.
The Man in the Moon
Stares down on the scene,
At the lost and forgotten child.

The reminders and scars of the past
the trials and pain life brings

Put a stop to all I have done.

I am not who I was anymore.
I used to, I used to, I used to.
I can't do, I can't do, I can't do.
I used to never think about what I couldn't do.
I used to reach my goals.
I used to be who I was

I am who I am now,
because of the words "I used to".
I am blinded.
I am a fool.
I have failed.
Because I failed to learned from my failure.
But now I finally see.
I still have the time and will

WaitingThree doors down at the end of the roadWaiting2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
there is a little old lady living in her lonely abode.
She waits day and night for her love to return.
She sits all the while too broken to mourn.
She used to know her love would never come back
but the strain on her heart made her mind crack.
Now every day is the day after he went away
but he will be back; it will all be okay.
He promised her that he would be fine
but a tractor trailer can't stop on a dime.
The trucker missed a stop sign and hit the man's car
so the love of her life is now in the stars
always looking at his wife with tears in his eyes
until the day they rejoin in the skies.

no reason to cheer

there's a cloud over me and its raining knives
all smiles are faked
no one hears his cry's
as he sits there shivers and shakes
doesn't even try to reach out because there's nothing there
only my own numb stare
no desire to fight the devils wrenches
would anyone notice if I could disappear
because Im starting to feel warm in these trenches
would they even shed a tear?
Sick of the acting
let me compost with the dirt

lets make sure this hurts
still wishing to disappear
lets seal this coffin with a drop of blood and a tear

Disregarded, unworthy of even Hell
They keep me alive but only barely
And only talk enough to scare me
While I wait for wounds to heal
They peek in by the window sill
And fake a smile for all to see
But I know what they think of me
I hear their words behind thin walls
To hear them laugh at how I crawl
Misjudged and hated, that's all I am
Even God will not help this lamb.

What's Right.There once was a boy,What's Right.2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
there once was a girl.
He loved the girl dearly,
and the boy was her world.
The boy was kind,
and would be there to stay,
but the girl was broken.
She yearned to fly away.
The boy wouldn't let go,
he was determined to fix her,
but there was no secret,
no miracle cure.
She simply had to go,
set herself free.
This was the answer,
the only true key.
He wouldn't give up,
so she had to shove.
It was all in good interest,
all because of love.
But the boy was so patient,
so determined and kind,
he wouldn't give up.
She made up her mind.
There would be one last push,
one last try
before she had to give up,
let herself die.
The boy won't like it.
He'll try to fight.
It will hurt the girl greatly,
but she has to do what's right.
So I'm sorry, so sorry,
for what I have to do,
but please, please remember,
I truly, really love you.

I know you would.
If you knew the truth
of what I've done.
I've hurt myself,
and I can't promise
I won't do it again.
I'm broken down,
and not very pretty

so if you knew everything else
you would think twice
I know almost certainly.
For why have someone that is
broken and insecure
when you can have
someone with less problems?
why go after me,
when there's someone better?
who has no scars,
who has not hurt their family.
someone that is not damaged.
yes I'm pretty sure
you would think twice
about liking me
if you knew the whole truth.
because why have me
when there's someone
that isn't broken

I have pushed through its fires.
I have walked over needles and daggers with flaming arrows being fired.
I have walked through blizzards.
I have walked through freezing rain.
I have walked across thin ice and seen the cracks as it gives way.
I have walked over mountains.
I have felt their sharp edges.
I have stumbled over loose rocks and clung to the ledges.
I have walked the smooth paved roads,
And slipped on the smaller gravel paths too.
And felt the thorns tug at me as I pressed through the world to make a new.
But I have danced through meadows.
I have felt the soft grass underfoot.
The tingling of the summer sun and frolicked through brooks.
I have walked in light flurries.
Watched my footprints imprint in the gentle snow.
And I knew I’d left my mark behind, that my presence might affect someone not even known.
And I have marched into the deep oceans
I have walked through the swirling seas.
Only to emerge once again, complete and having faced a cha

While tides of loneliness pass me by
And for the final night I fall and lie
With you in my arms, I cough and cry
I do not like this world of mine
For accusing me of many a crime
This world knows naught but how to lie
And it clips my wings so I may not say goodbye
And until I relax and fall and die
I shall not know peace nor heavenly flight
So for this last night, I lie and cry
With you in my arms, I dream to fly

And my words taste like blood.

Maybe fighting for acception.
Rather, suffering rejection...
Maybe breaking for direction...
Perhaps dying for correction...
Maybe hurting for affection..
So maybe before you label someone just because you don't feel a connection...
Maybe fix yourself before you point out imperfections.
hallelujahhallelujah as i singhallelujah3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
to the envy of the larks
gracing the winds,
or the sirens
crooning in lullabies
my heart is singing
louder than silver bells
hinged on the backs of my ankles
like infantile wings
i am lost
like i am found,
secret and stoic
and birthing the beauty
of the night
into freckled constellations
over my back
hallelujah i sing
there is no greater joy,
as a woman's heart
full of the sea
in the sea
as she sings, "hallelujah,
in even the darkest of nights,
cigarette smoke and forever,
you'd be waiting for me."

I hate their faces.
But I want one like it.
But I am of some sorts glad...
I am not one of them.
For their souls are rotted like spoiled fruit.
They hide behind the pretty mask
That I wish resembled me.

i am just caught in the tides
the ebb and the flow
as i fail continually

to hold onto at night
and without knowing you
too much past your body

My Own HellI think of waysMy Own Hell2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To waste away
With this time left unpaid
I sit and reflect
On the breath in my chest
And the words left unsaid
I rot and writhe in darkness
My heart helpless and a mess
Filled with this sick unrest
I look up and see nothing
I look inside and see worse than nothing
I watch the lies and hear the sighs
The lonely breaths of emptiness
Into an empty world only I know
The one I created for myself
You may breach the castle walls
But the stone will never crumble
And the fortress will never fall
Who hears the cries of a helpless child
Who hears the cracking of a broken heart
Who hears the death of a dying smile
Watch the words twist in agony
Writhing upon the cold hard ground
Burning to ash like paper set to flame
A dead world unknown to others
Wrapped in words of hurt
And fires that burn forever
The plains of Hell never looked so heavenly

I want the animal in you;

Take your clothes off, take them off for me.
Let me see the scars and the marks,
those dark moles and faint sun spots.
I want to memorize the way your fur grows.
I want to tickle my cheeks with your goose bumps.
Let me count the bruises and the cuts.
I'll bless them with names;
I'll lick away the blood stains.
We can lie skin to skin for days.
I have enough kisses for your brows and lashes,
for nails, teeth and toes, for thighs and knees;
in your curves and dents I'll nuzzle my nose.
Let me see your skin dance.
Through and around; your every breath performs,
through and around, an ancient holy chant.
I don't want your dreams; forget the ifs and the maybes.
All those regrets you carry are nothing but sad stories.
You don't have to utter a single word;
your body holds all the promises.
Don't tell me any secrets, hold your confessions;
just take your clothes off, take them off for me.
