When will the cloud in my head clear?
Stuck in the middle of a messy riddle.
Tongue twisters told me not to toy with my mind.
I have already wasted a thousand years and said sorry a million times.
Chasing you became a constant dream,
Waking up to find myself alone again.
Teary mattress covers over me.
Feels like Water board, feels like youre torturing me.
Waiting foolishly in the wind because this is meant to be.
Waiting childishly in the rain because you are what I need.
What day is today? Ive lost count in my misery.
Tick tock, the clock replaces the rhythm my heart once beat.
Now its a hollow space inviting dark thoughts and sinister dreams.
While I sleep I feel you kiss, but see your blood soaked teeth.
The night must have begun the loop has somehow started again.
Every day it gets worse I lose a parts of me.
I open my eye to find out that I cant even see.
God as muted the world, for me its such a bliss.
Never feel so good to feel no more.

In this big city life, big city lights.
You are a hundred miles from home.
The heart is not for clubs and parties.
But yet you march on like the armies.
The colours, the white, the strobe light.
Nothing compared to the country night.
Sky so clear you can see every star.
Lovers can rest their aching hearts.
Wish you were there not here life is tough.
Away from your love this road is rough.
Sometimes you cant help but wonder.
Is this what your hope and dream is worth?
Heart feels empty and weaker every year.
Wake up to a dark room with no one near.
How can this be, noise is everywhere.
Is this the sound of a passing train?
Or a shout of warning:
Go back home mister, you are truly lost
The walls to the mazes never break.
That is why you need to fly away.
Wings started forming from my shoulder blades.
The wish came true, hope is not too late.
I see the house and the rose covered gates.
The windows wide open just for my sake.

So many times I thought I found love.
It feels so right fitted like the gloves.
But soon its over, what happened to us?
You looked at me blankly and gave me a shrug.
love dies easy, there is no fuss
You need a heart to fulfil my love
Life alone journey onwards can be tough.
So take me back and let the tape reverse.
So many times I thought I found love.
My heart flies high like the dove.
Take it or break it the ring is real.
Why not think about it and give me a call.
We can fix anything to right from wrong.
So come to me and feel the love.
To be free and live like the birds.
This time Im sure its true love
Because we gone through pain,
shame, rain and everything rough.
This time from you for the first time.
I felt true love.
Let Them In.With my back to the doorLet Them In.5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I can’t help but fall to the floor
Out of breath, out of time
Out of sight, out of my mind
They’re tempting me; they lead astray
They mark my words; I am their prey
I can’t fight them anymore
So let them in and end this war
Leave me to my demons
Let them have at me
And strip me of my reasons
To ever be happy
I am broken enough
So that they fit in the cracks
I never wanted to be this
But now there’s no turning back
Let them take control
Because without you in my life
This is how a person like myself
Can ever become whole.
Can You Heal My HeartPlease don't leave me aloneCan You Heal My Heart9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
But don't stand by too close
I'm scared of the silence
I'm being haunted by ghosts
The past lives in my head
Displaying where my problems arose
Walking down the same road as my father
Is what I'm scared of the most
Never had someone to guide me
Someone who'd show me the path
The only lessons I've had
Showed me to be controlled by my wrath
Little by little
Its been eating at my heart
But who needs to feel
When I'm only embraced by the dark
I need to rub alcohol on all my wounds
So I'll press this bottle to my lips
Every shot is medication
That helps my thoughts become eclipsed
I'll use my pills
To turn my brain a dark abyss
Maybe all I need as medication
Is for Death to come and drop a kiss
Can you fight off these demons
Can you heal my heart
Prove my life is still worth living
Before I fall apart
I don't have much time
Please save me from the dark
To anyone who hears me
Please come and heal my Heart
I'm scared of this life
I'm scared of the pain

They don't understand
They don't understand the fear we live in all year.
They don't get the fact life isn't all good, there are tears.
I don't blame them, even I find it hard to be fair.
But seeing my girl every day, going through the same shit.
Makes me feel pain she feels, but only a fraction of it.
Ten times worst for her, because she's in the centre of it.
Hopeless soul she doesn't know where to go,
Stumble across me, walking down this lonely road.
At first I was like them, I didn't understand.
How does hurting helps you like no-one can?
When love fails just get out that razor sharp knife.
Forget all else, pain brings blissful peace to our minds.
They don't understand, we are scarred far deeper than skin.
They don't know how many years it takes for us to repair within.
You should forgive them dear, they are not worth the tears.
As long as we are together as a pair,
we can get through another day another year.

My Dream GuyMy Dream Guy…My Dream Guy9 months ago in Emotional More Like This
He’d have to be taller than me,
Have soft, silky hair-the kind that’s as soft as kitty fur-
Intense eyes, the kind that see into your heart,
Be kind, caring, understanding, and respectful.
It would help if he was creative, had a silly side,
And liked the same kinds of entertainment as me.
Definitely the maturity and ability to be serious,
To deal with me would be a must.
He’d purr for me and like cats,
Be romantic and sweet,
And not an overbearing jerk.
Does such a guy exist?
But since he’s my DREAM guy,
Why not pull out all the stops?
The likelihood of finding someone to love,
Who will love me in return,
And it working out…
I don’t have much hope of that.
And him being all that I ever hoped for?
The chances are so slim,
I doubt he exists.
So let me dream…
And in the mean time,
I have my cat.
Lloronai remember that day you were crying, la lloronaLlorona9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
howling like the coyotes around the hanging tree outside
and maybe they were crying for you.
they came from the forest in pairs,
in meters, in taut, sinewy lines
to see the one who had murdered her kin,
her daughters, her brothers, her self
and left them to drown in her tears.
i saw their images tacked to the hanging tree,
and i did not forget, did not forget.
and i promised my self i would never be like you
could never hurt with these hands,
could never kill with these veins.
and now the coyotes moan for me
or else they cackle like devils,
and call me a liar, and call me a thief
she slapped me today.
looked at her hand innocently,
curled and uncurled her stubby fingers
and then she was malice
and malice struck me in the face.
it burned red like the venom of a snake, and then
she made a muffled noise that sounded like laughter,
delirious, a pig's squeal with a viper's unblinking glare
she smiled the smile of a beast before bat
Children of Ash and EarthThe chanting filled my head.Children of Ash and Earth9 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
Staring into the gentle crackling of the fire, I could hear the twisted lullaby repeating itself as if the monks themselves were beside me. Whispers, deep booming calls, broken calls to the heavens in a language nobody understood, they rose together in a clamouring tinnient at the back of my mind. They filled my head, building in volume and harmony as they sang to the rhythm of the fire. I heard those damned voices always, even when they were no longer singing. I wanted nothing more than to silence them forever. Staring hard into the fire, I wound the hand wraps tighter around my palms, re-wrapping them over and over again, daring to hope that perhaps this time, I could stop the bleeding.
“…Will you bury me?”
The chanting stopped. I looked up, the lullaby momentarily banished by my sister’s voice. Asha didn’t stir. Sat across from me, her dull and lifeless eyes were visible only for passing seconds before she was obscured once

I never know what darkness is coming next

It's the shadows that scare your children
It's in the people you know are deranged
So why live if everything is dark?
Is there any light in the world?
If there is, i don't see it
Happiness feels like a distant memory to me
The darkness takes my soul away
And leaves me with nothing
I wish i could see the light
I wish i could be happy
I feel numb now
Like i don't even belong
Like i don't exist
Someone makes it worse
But what can i really do?
Soon i shall take leave
And maybe be happy at last

Gunshots sound about us
Fighting to see who is king
Our heroes of patriots sing
At the point of our enemy's guns
Fear strikes the heart
All of our daughters and sons
Are being ripped apart
Storming a beach never again
People rise at the sound
Of their brothers and their sisters
Falling all around
Lords will fall
While heroes crawl
Through a trench of gore
Back at home music plays
Glorifying the war
The People think that we have won
But we have just moved on
To a beach so far away
No one will hear our song
A song of glory and righteousness
Turned inside out
Filling all of our hearts with the depths of doubt

Is too mainstream
For the most retarded fish in the sea
Scales ever so brightly coloured
To stand out against the rest
Only to find
That the sea is already full
Of silly looking, brightly coloured fish
This fish liked swimming
Before it was cool
Forever a fool
Craving for attention
In essence, what I’m trying to say is;
You’re scared of regularity
Dripping with irony
You’re a boring entity
Trying to be cool
Before it was cool
Doesn’t make any sense
When you created a fad
Of your own design
And when you followed the rest
In their silly string vests
You stopped thinking for yourself
You became as that of which you try to defy
So put down your yakult,
And drop the charade
Stop prancing about
With your loony parade

And I became the only friend I had.
I fell in love with noble words
And moonstruck dreams
And genius schemes
And flaky thoughts
And berserk quotes.
One day the hummingbirds
Laughed at me because my songs
Contain no music.
I shouted loud, "YOU BIRDS ARE WRONG!
My songs are poems and a poem is
An eerie song that plays alone.
I had a heart shaped cutout in my chest.
Sometimes it became a subway for fireflies
Sometimes a bridge for love and lies
Sometimes I hid there a pack of fries
And a coke with ice – extra large size
But most of all, I hid a secret –
A hope so deep it blurred my eyes.
I wish one day you'd read my songs
-and return my heart to where it belongs.
