A Bird's EscapeThe skyA Bird's Escape2 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.

No, not who you were expecting,

I'm no one pretty, I'm sorry

We used to sit over there- that's right!
That patch of grass and wildflower, the

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.
We'd talk about a family and children- when we were children!

Silent and GoneAlong the blue streams of those who were simplistically glassed, I drag my wooden, empty coffin; it contains only my past.Silent and Gone2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
For the many decades I've lengthened have expanded pain's time; across shallow mountains and beatings I prepare my final climb.
Through harsh mists and soft grasses the journey trembles on; days on end without my voices; alas, I realize they are gone.
Near all abandonment's shelter I rest without ease; my halved demon appears before me; she speaks hellishly in the breeze.
Forgiveness and hallucination she crisply burns in my eyes; I must awaken and continue, 'tis my time to remain wise.
To a judging stream near the greenish peaks, I sit down to somberly rest, screeching memories grasp my bloodied hands; these visions are merely a test.
And here at last is the accurate time, I lie down and breathe once to sigh, down the merciless falls I briskly crash; today was the day to die.

But at the end I realised

I am strong.
I was strong enough to
not commit suicide,
to blossom from my cuts,
to speak for my own.
Because I was strong enough

WrathHe wishes to burn away it allWrath2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Hear the screams of the ones
Who made his heart tear apart
Blood will flow
As the sun sets
Hope will fall
As night arrives
His corrupted mind desires for eternal destruction
As all who had hurt him now died away
His hatred yet grows deep within
As he finally starts to realize
He is the one meant to die
It's now the time to break his own mind
My purpose is to be undone
As all my decisions
Lead to misery
I am the one to blame
He feels so numb
Lost he is forevermore
He slits his wrists open
Laughs as the blood flows
Forming a crimson river
On the frost ground
No tears he will shed
As his bones break
His body starts to fail
He falls on his knees
He lays crippled
With a broken heart
And finally he knows
He has ended it all
I chose the wrong way...
Immaculate MisconceptionI am drowning in the tears I have cried,Immaculate Misconception3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Surrounded by blood, broken dreams, and regret,
I will not fall and I will live on,
I will forever believe in myself and not some god,
This path is one that I have chosen wisely,
Looking at all the issues plaguing the world,
If there is a god he does not give a fuck,
With all of the innocent kids who bloods is spilled,
The ones who beg for help who never receive it,
Who live in broken homes, get abused, and left to die,
Who look at the fucking sky and scream "Why god why!",
Can you really look them in the face and say there is a god,
Tell them that he is just busy with other things,
What is he busy with it can't be the poverty stricken nations,
You know or the kids who get bullied everyday and have thoughts of suicide,
Everything the church tells you, and their stories, are all lies,
I stand for believing in yourself,
Have pride make your own life,
Live through the pain, and strife,
Be a happy person don't ever fall,

I am tired of you,
tired of being chained.
One day I shall leave,
leave you in dismay,
maybe then you'll see

I am just your friend.

the last word have been spoken.
Our loved ones have fallen
and I hear death calling.
Dreams are shattered
survival is all that matters,
blood has slpattered
but that doesnt matter.
Insanity has overpowered,

Bodies are shattered
like a sea of lost hopes.
Everything around me colapses,
nothing else is left rising.
The skies have turned black,
all that's left is the breath.
Yesterday was life and memories,
the present is ending,
and future is non existing.
Everything has shattered,
all that remains is a broken world.

Thrown away like an old bottle of piss

For I have found a new friend
Sadly I want just a bit more
You are the one that I adore
Walking around dumbstruck, and hurt
Right when I was going to ask for your hand you went for a jerk
So now I am on my knees looking for something to do
The only happiness in my life was you
Broken, and alone I fight for my life
Wondering if I can even survive
I suffered for you, I bled for you, and now I might even die for you

Only after the fact that you still loved me.
I dont want to love you anymore.
But I cant stop,

I cant stop loving you know matter what I do,
your just that amazing to me
Something that draws me to you.
But deep down I still think that you are Unforgiven
For all the pain you put me through
And yet I still love you...

How can I even know what is real
All I have is a soul that is broken, and shattered
If I died would it even really matter
So many times I have pondered this question
Sometimes I can't even bare to see my own reflection
I want to rip out my fucking heart
I wish this pain never had a start
It is taking all I have not to take a leap
So I sit here, and cry in silence no peep
My blood covers the sink
As I take time to think
Why am I here
Will my happiness reappear
Searching for a reason to live I stand alone
As I fall to my face I let out only a silent moan
