What is Love? When all is Hate.
What once was a peaceful dream so
Lucid, so daring, so bold!
Now but remnants of a past-to-be-forgotten, I’m told.
As a child, I knew not of you,
What was false, or on the other hand, true
As eyes turn on me, cold,
You alone take me in your arms and hold
On to what is left of a little girl who never made it out
Of that dream to be forgotten.
I thought things were forever
Dare I say anything could die, for that was never.
But life is a funny thing, you know?
You believe so strongly in Now that when you look back..
Now was only Then and then you thought things were perfect
But as it passed, your view collapses. It shatters. Like a cracked window,
The view you saw, now distorted. Contorted. Deformed. Horrific.
I still believe in you. Even though all that has come to past has been nothing but true
And true it is, true with all the evil life could do
Though I look at you now, through seemingly flawless

No, not who you were expecting,
But look, I'm smiling, for me
I'm no one pretty, I'm sorry
my smile turns others down
and what sad face I have- they say
Until now it never bothered me- not too much!
But hello again,
I haven't seen you in what seems like an eternity
Do you remember?
We used to sit over there- that's right!
That patch of grass and wildflower, the
swing set we'd sit on at night as children,
looking up to the stars- we'd talk about
how one day when we'd fall asleep forever, we'd be among those too.
I would be a star smaller than yours but we'd be stars together, and
you and I would have our special place, in the sky.
But hello again, hello.
I see you're happy, with her. Not me.
And hello again, why don't you look at me
like you used to?
Like you.. used to.
We'd talk about a family and children- when we were children!
But of course we knew nothing of what or how it actually-
Oh I apologize, I see now why you le

When you do something with no monetary goals.

Every time you do it again, it’s a new, exciting, experience
When you do your job without ever having to work
When you can look in the mirror and feel pride without vanity
When a smile is on your face and you don’t know how it got there.
The state of being when you
do what you Love, and Love what you Do;

And I’ll play as someone Happy
Let’s dress Up
And let this all… wash down.
Let’s make it Halloween today!
Let’s, you and me, switch roles.
Stop smiling like you know what I’m about to do,
You shouldn’t be happy you know.
It’s your job to stay inside and be sad,
I’ll play you, today.
Don’t let anyone see you!
There can’t be two of us, of you, of me.
While I’m you,
You have to make sure no one sees you.
Don’t peek out of the windows, okay?
If you accidentally show yourself, I won’t forgive you.
A game isn’t fun if you can’t follow the rules.
Life’s a game y’know?
Just stay inside and try to not make a sound,
I can still hear you,
Don’t do that.
I’ll be back,
Just let me enjoy myself
Or at least pretend to.
Hey, what are you doing?
Hey! That’s not fair, get

I can’t feel my toes and at first I think
It’s just my toes.
I can cover them up.
I can warm them.
It spreads, like fire,
I glance away for a second, it seems, and my feet are cold
That’s funny, I didn’t feel that
Maybe I’ll cover them up too
I’ll warm them up.
I’ll take a nap
Maybe a short rest will make it all better, warm them
What’s that? How long has it been?
My legs… are you still mine..
Why has my breath left me, short?
Has everything but deserted me?
What about you, are you still here?
Are you still with me?
And before I can say goodbye, I think my thoughts are leaving me too –

Pretty metaphors are for pretty girlsI told you to stopPretty metaphors are for pretty girls1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
spewing pretty metaphors at me,
for with each elaborate comparison,
I feel a bit more
detached from this world
And maybe I don’t feel so strong at the moment,
but would you be
if you felt like the entire universe
was resting upon your shoulders,
and someone was just there saying:
But you’re stronger than the powerful beats
of a butterfly’s wings
And maybe I do need more confidence,
but would you exuberate it
when the part you hated most about yourself
were the freckles that have speckled your face for years,
and someone was just there muttering:
They’re not flaws,
but rather stars that form constellations
Yes, I can’t help but hate
all those unrealistic metaphors
you choose to pelt at me when I’m low,
yet the irony is,
I know that those beautiful words
are realistic in your eyes,
So I can’t hate you.
A Bird's EscapeThe skyA Bird's Escape3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
a world of its own
black and gray and white
all intermixed like some kind of cheap reflection
its blue shows like an ocean reflected in a mirror,
Yet there's still life that's not just fishes and sea and wild animals and humans
the birds revel in that vast place
that giant space which gives them freedom
but not us
and then we built planes
and soon enough it's a war zone
not just down here, with our guns and tanks
now it's up there too, with more deadly weaponry
giving chance to cause a lot of death and suffering
shouldn't it be free?
Yet we killed it, like we killed the earth's lands
so that's why the birds escape up there
to get away from our humanity
and to continue giving life to the sky
something we should all be reminded of.

One True LoveYou found me deep in the darknessOne True Love2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Even though I didn't want to be found
You heard me weeping on my knees
Alone in the dark; no one to love
Every sign pointed to different directions
But every sign lead to a dead end
I couldn't see where I was going
But the signs made it seem as if I can take any road
Every one I asked said follow the signs
Their smiles and hunched backs pointed to only darkness
Alleys with cheap tricks and lies
Cities that had so many signs to happiness
Brothels, bars, casinos, to even nightclubs
This place started to scare me
But I became so attracted to this darkness
I wanted to stay longer; maybe something here can make me happy
Nothing made me happy; it made the hole in my chest bigger
It was fun for a second, but now it's torture
It plays over and over; what lie did I fall for?
More suffering and still alone
We all had the same interests but still alone
They seemed to enjoy themselves more
Even though I tried, I could not
This was doing more harm than good; what l

This hate inside
My mind darkened
Desires for more
Shall flow forever
Wallow in this pain
Feel the coldness
Your wounds still bleed
With ripped heart you scream
Those pleads unheard
In this forsaken world
These wings used to cary us
...Now we are falling deeper down
When the despair

With trembling hands
You still try to reach
My withering self
Silence is left.

The pain could be locked away
Hidden in a black chest
Where you can't reach it
Suffering is what gets us down
Yet you cry and cannot shed tears
Otherwise you would drown in them
Once you saw an Angel
His wings yet so strong
He could protect thee
Silently watching over
Once this Angel fell
No protection, you are alone
Wings black and broken
Who would save the Angel?
Have you ever felt the rage
Fill your heart, lead thoughts
Revenge you want, nothing more
For the wounds you have got
Yet they will deny your anger
Yet they tell you to calm down
So you turn back, swallow your hate
Where it burns your lungs, your heart
Once you were crying outloud
As people rejected and ignored
Of course you were so hurt
Crying was the only solution
Yet you are told not to cry
It makes you look such a whiner
Emos and sad people aren't needed
That's what they say
You were jealous at times
When someone got a better grades
Or told how nice and easy life is

What we had was good I'm positive of that,
But now you're "in love" again at the drop of a hat,
It just makes me sick to see people like you be so naive,
To be honest I felt love when I was with you it's true,
But now I really honestly don't want anything to do with you,
I'm heartbroken and I really don't care to find someone to love,
I'll just wait for them to come to me,
Then maybe I might see what love means to me,
I need that one person to show me,
Because right now I really don't care,
I thought you were the one but you were just a loaded gun,
Threatening to blow my brains out onto the sidewalk,
Almost everything about you make me ache,
Just knowing I was with you caused a pain I just couldn't shake,
But now you're with someone knew who you say you love,
It's pretty funny because it's been only a few weeks and not even that,
All the things we were are done forever,
My happiness can now start,
Now that I don't have thinking about you to worry
RosesRoses are read and violets are blueRoses2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I gave my entire heart over to you
You took it from me and dumped it in the trash
I should've known, beauty never lasts
Roses are brittle and violets will wilt
All I did was try and ask you for help
You took me under your wing and crept into my heart
Then you took your time in ripping me apart
Roses are dead, the violets are too
How did I ever convince myself to trust you
Still, it was nice to think I had a friend
To bad I was just a toy to you in the end
Ripping Off My MaskTears fall down my faceRipping Off My Mask3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And no one sees
What hell it is
To show the real me
I must rip off this mask
With its pain and its gore
Even though they won't say
What I suffer this for
They say this will help me
Only that is not true
It will help if I survive this,
But those thoughts are far and few
I shouldn't do this
When you won't fix the problem
Keep her away
And you won't have to solve them
Stop trying to fix me
Like I'm a man-made machine
Or even worse
Some unsolvable thing
I need help
That much is true
But the person to help
Definitly won't be you
I'm not completely crazy
Even if that's not what it seems
Leave me alone
I be happy in my dreams
The Darkness In MeI've fallen too deepThe Darkness In Me2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Into my own misery
For I cannot see the light of hope
This slowly dying heart
Captured by my fears
What once was warm
Is now frozen within
Release me from my chains
For only you can see through me
This darkness taking over
Filling every bit in me
Turning me into something
I was never meant to be
It's rage I can't stop
This pain is feeding
The furious beast
I'll tear your world apart
All love turned into hate
As the sun sets down tonight
For you will never hurt me again
It's the darkness in me
Rise.Bring me back to the start,Rise.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Back when "I love you" was all that we could say,
I think about the decisions I've made everyday,
They haunt me and I just can't get away,
What we have is a status, there is no substance,
I've kept myself from better days because of you,
Left my heart broken... black and blue,
This will be all over soon,
Covering up the hurt of an open wound,
Being with you is like constantly stabbing myself in the chest,
I can't go on with this much blood on my hands,
If you understood how much I wish I could move on then you might understand,
I'm a broken man hoping for something new in this life,
Something to distract me from the pain and strife,
Maybe someone good enough to one day become wife,
My cheeks are stained with the tears I've cried,
Sometimes I'm confused at why I don't just die,
Oh yeah because I don't quit,
I always keep going not giving a shit,
I may be broken and I may cry,
But I can promise that I will never die.

It's hard to reach out to you
Overwhelming pain has no words
Only the feeling you know so well
I am trying to find the right way
Right way to explain it all
If anyone could guide me through
Through this path of darkness
Eventually each of them will turn away
Path becomes too hard to go on
Yet I am walking forward all alone
My steps want to mislead me
Mislead into death
