Beautiful CovenAs I take your hand in this circle,
I no longer feel alone,
I've found where I belong,
And I grow strong.
Years on a vacant island,
But now I have returned home.
You drape a black robe as dark as the night sky,
Over my body as beautiful as a temple,
I see light twinkle in your eyes,
As you light the pink candle that resembles,
The love that is growing between the whole group.
We all link closing our eyes,
Saying chants to improve our lives,
Never will we cause harm,
Never will we follow the path of lust.
What we must do is give back.
Restore the tree branch we tore down,
Plant beauteous flowers in the ground.
And sit here in the angelic sound of silence,
Oh how it fills my soul taking me away,
For a visit with the Gods and Goddesses.
I sway into a trance of serenity and love.
I feel Eirene invading into me,
Showing the peace that is meant to be inside of me.
Frigg showing me what I will receive in the future,
From the better people I will come in contact with.
Hades showing me the love

She Felt It TooThe heavens cried out,She Felt It Too1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
They said you have to try,
Don’t let her slip away
You’ll be hurt, and she will cry.
Make her feel special
Make her feel loved,
Help her know that
She is the only one for you.
Look up to the light
And leave your broken heart,
Tell her that you love her
And kiss her in plain sight.
Her eyes will light up
And her heart will warm,
You both will live so far
Outside of this dark storm.
“But when the lightning hit
And you both fell to the ground,
Everything you loved had gone
And you couldn’t make a sound,
Her eyes filled up with tears
And her saddened body shook,
The memories you once had
Burned up like a book…”
Please look into her eyes
And ask her just one thing,
Was she in it for the love
Or was she in it for the break?
Make her touch your heart
And let her feel the beat,
You both felt something great
Before all of this hate.
Tell her that she is still your only love
And she will think back to the nights
When you and her would s
The Land We Live OnI know of a land where young ones are corrupt,The Land We Live On10 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where the butterflies attempt to fly with broken wings,
But die in the process.
An outcast is just a ghoul in hiding.
Every loving word slurred never meant a thing.
The scars are always visible.
In this land it is always below zero.
Each day everyone knows that tomorrow will be the same,
Here lies no hope.
The soil covering the surface is poisoned.
Sometimes tongues are chopped off.
Slowly they all lose their mind.
The eldest ones are locked away to be hidden in the dark.
So many broken hearts, they cannot even be counted.
Memories are shunned with pills,
And obscure buildings that cause blood shot eyes and controlled minds.
The people will resort to harm and other vile ways to find,
The peace that their soul needs.
But because there is no such thing blood is shed,
Along with tears and countless body limbs.
These poor souls,
But there is not an ounce of sympathy.
This land gets worse with each day.
Some even have to pay,
To get the love th
When one door closes...I’ve heard the sayingWhen one door closes...9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
When one door closes, another opens,
I felt the disconnect and the lock clicked shut
It closed for just a moment
Then opened so hard
That it spun me
I went down in a haze of mixed emotions,
Not over my loss but feeling for you,
My wants mangling each other,
Eating each other alive,
Until there was nothing left
When the tears stopped
and you were there, waiting
I ran toward you
Wanting change, wanting freedom
Embracing an uncertain future
Your eyes were like the ocean
A swirling punch bowl of blue and white,
So inviting in their dance
So severe was the pull of your undertow
That I dove right in
Without a life preserver
Through your door I swam
With a tail like a mermaid
Propelling me face first
Into your warm water embrace,
With a smile
Meant just for you
It wasn’t what I wanted
At the time...
It was unexpected,
It was love laid out at my feet
In a trail of hot sand
That burned my toes
Until you carried me

Silent... the breath he can't catch after his gasp when she said 'Hello gorgeous. Let's go make some trouble.'
Soft... the sheets on the bed in a room he'd never seen, but was happy to be inhabiting.
Silent... the arch of her back and the tears on her face, oxytocin induced...
Hard... the concrete he sees when he awakes from the dream
Cold... the skin on his chest where she laid her head seconds before
Hard... the sound of him lighting a cigarette in the quiet room
Cold... his breath when he exhales the first drag of another day

Keeping secretsHave you ever cried yourself to sleep?Keeping secrets9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
And if someone asked you that,
how would you answer?
Truth be told, I used to -
Just lie in bed and think,
think about every single thing
and how I felt about it...
what it meant to me.
But I'll just say no,
because I don't want you to know
about how weak I am.
And it is when all is silent,
the tears will slide slowly,
soaking your pillow.
Like a movie,
the scene plays out in your head
of all those times when you were
damaged and broken.
Replayed and replayed until
all the images end up blur and disjointed.
Have you ever cried yourself to sleep?
Yes, I have - many times, in fact.
But I'll just say no
because you're my friend
and if I were to tell you,
it would be the end.

Bleeding through the eyes,
The hope is now gone
Drowned in your cries.
A sudden scream, the agonys so loud,
You drop to your knees,
Pray to God to help you out,
But once again, He has let you down.
Not able to move,
Not able to speak,
Life is so cruel,
And always was, it seems.
Youve lost your will,
Youre getting weak,
Your body has collapsed
And so have your dreams.
Your mind gives up,
But you still want to fight,
Strength seeps out through your wrists
So you just fall down.
Then comes the peace,
So desired and calm.
Your head is now empty
And so is your heart.
Theres no more pain,
No memories, nor hopes.
Sweet and bright,
Settling down in your mind.

Wanting a beautiful kiss.
The lips they know too well,
Gradually I feel my mind compelling,
Back to almost a month ago,
When I was still apart of the freak show.
Dancing on the stage,
With a pointy blade,
Focused on a luscious vein.
The oh's and ah's of the crowd causes pain,
I finally notice how different I really am.
I finally notice there is nothing I can,
Do to pick up the glass without getting cut.
I finally noticed that all I am is a nut.
I finally noticed that deep down I'm in the freak show for life,
I can no longer hide and fight,
The true me when it's thriving to come out.
In this moment I do doubt,
That I will ever be flawless, only odd.
I hold a blade to my arm as the former freaks applaud,
My so called success and I go on for the next act.
I will never turn back.

Watch the liquid hit the ground
She tries to pick up the pieces
But cuts her hands on the shards
Shattered, broken, cold young heart
The end will always be the start
She called the name
That promised hope
The sky turned to gray
The end of her day
The pain has surfaced again
Promising her an end
But the promise will again be broken
Her skin bears love's last token
She will scream aloud her love
No answer comes from above
The red splinters and cracks
A new dark voice attacks
The embodiment of her love
She lifts, and sends above
Her final wish

My heart is a frozen block of ice.
Surrounded by a downpour of rain
Since it didn't take my head's advice.
"Run." it said. But my heart still had reign.
I had trusted you with this big thing,
And you had treated it like nothing.
You don't understand how much this stings.
I can't believe you think I'm bluffing.
Now all I do is build up my wall.
My heart may just finally give out.
I had shown and given you my all.
But you cut me and let me bleed out.
I should've known this right from the start.
You were going to destroy my heart.

And poor little Nozomu hated it.
Nozomu sighed as she stared out the window.
"why did we have to move here again?!"
She yelled to her mother. As a 9 year old girl like herself, she was loud. And she wanted everyone to hear her.
"Because your grandfather built this house a long time ago. He was suppose to make this a farm but he didn't get to finish. poor man..."
Nozomu's mother was in the kitchen making hot rice cakes. Her mother, a soft understanding women, truly understood the meanings of Nozomu. How she responded, how she worked, and why she was so loud.

His arms wrapped around me instantly and he whispered in my long blonde hair "I'm never going to let you go. I promise it's going to be okay."

it's too dark to see
Searching hands that

the embraces left

Still feeding the darkness
she dances no more
Must murder her
Kill that butterfly
who was once so beautiful
Broken little hands that
are too weak to break
the brittle butterfly
who goes by another name
The hands are mine
the darkness hers
Cold has come

Broken wings wil be mine again
So I can fly again
Do not die with her
You will find another butterfly

What defines your basic human needs, your average quantity of normal?
What potions spill your nothingness,
What skin builds up your exterior?
What makes you rise up in the morning?
What tears you open in the night?
What secrets, promises and wishes compose your inside fright?
What dance do you dance when others tremble,
Under your disillusioned romance?
What tongue do you speak in your steady sleep,
What habits do you have warped around our toes?
What makes you smile and quiver and tremor, all at once?
What reality do you pursue, if it's a reality at all?
What dreams do you dream when you're not even seen?
What might you be, or where or whom?
Where we you born, and were you're from,
Are all inadequate for me,
What and who and whom and whose

But I know I'm not alone,

Lo! Look- flax faced, flax haired man
Who stands tower-high in tempest
Cloaked in forest-skinned clothes
And bearing remedy for many
Worn and weary bones!
While others stood to smile and fan
Flames to burn me, tread on me,
That hero-hand reached down
To set me free!
And his heart-ally!
Flinching, fear-bound friend of mine
Who vanquished all my fears of thine
Gender! Many blessings heaped upon thy soul
And oft-struck structure! Winds howl and lash
Both thy forms yet lighthouse-love for me
Is never shut, never held back!
And even when my own words to wrack
You, did not choose to cast me out
Nor hear my sullen shout of "leave me be!"
But hold me to your narrowed selves!
Even when I stood poised to plunge
And dash myself against a red rock
Raced thee and free-made me
Of my self consumed anxiety.
And Whiterose! The words of comfort
Oft distilled to aid me in my search
For one to love more than myself
Will echo everlasting in my mind!
