The River's SongPush your head below the surfaceThe River's Song2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Let the sun slide of your face
Lose identity and purpose
Lose the never ending race
For a brief and sacred moment
Hear the river softly sway
Feel your skin embrace the torrent
Watch your troubles float away
Feel the water tug your hair out
In the rolling, rhythmic tide
See like ghosts the sparkling lake trout
Feel them splay your fingers wide
Let your feet float up above you
As your fingers brush the ground
Listen, as this glowing vacuum
Twists and wrinkles every sound
As you float beneath the surface
Feel your spirit bob along
Into some ethereal heaven
Captured in the rivers song
In that single stillest silence
When the current arches strong
Lose yourself, and lose your purpose
Listen to the river's song
Field of InnocenceThe dreams float away from me like dandelion wisps.Field of Innocence8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I reach up for them, fruitlessly grasping at the crisp air
Only to be met with an empty clutch.
And I stare at the barren field of innocence
After so many years
That I am just now coming home.
“Am I alone?”
Met with a haunting resonance that settles
In between the sheets of my life.
“You are lost,”
And I try to speak
But there is nothing to say
That can measure my grief
Without sounding hollow like a lonesome tree.
So I lie inside the barren field
And let the earth wrap its lifeless grasp
Around my body.
For it has died
And so have I.

Look into my eyes,
see my mind is like space and
my thoughts are like a Galaxy
Traverse my universe & see,
you are my gravity
even in every matter
made of stars that burn
for time indefinite even forever
And you remind me of Aphrodite,
when she was born from the sea,
waiting for me,everyone wanted
to see the amulet of Aphrodite.
like a white shark with a cold
grin I came to you and sat you
down on an Einstein Rosen bridge,
and then I said; my love for you
is still burning despite my treason.
Is my love forbidden? You've looked
at me like a bee. But despite my
sting you've over looked my being.
I'm sorry. Here's the necklace that
I have taken, please, wear it like
a bracelet an anklet or even a ring.
and may you glow like the sun over

A Black Hole (My Dear Friend)My dear friend,A Black Hole (My Dear Friend)9 months ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Why must the good things always end?
Like the times when fun and mischief blended
And indefinite life never frightened.
Youthful camaraderie helped lighten
Our coming depression.
Inevitably disrupted by lights,
Did these sessions blow an underlying lesson?
My dear friend,
When will the past come to an end?
Chained by painful loss for you alone to fend -
Tossed in the pouring rain by current trends.
Surrendering this mean war will not mend
Your lasting depression.
Trivially ignored by daily routine,
Did these transgressions transcend into obsession?
My dear friend,
A black hole absorbs with no end.
Corpses are swallowed whole - Please comprehend.
With intentions of love, not to offend,
I will observe, staying away from you,
Afraid I, too, will be consumed in its vacuum.
My dear friend,
The good things do not have to end.

A little of me is never enough,

A mover of mountains,

I am a rare treasure,
a jewel in the desert,

I flow, I ripple,
I can freeze time.
I fall from the skies,
run from the mountains,
wash upon distant shores.
Complex and simple at turns.
A thing of reality and of myth.
The only thing I fear is man,
and what you do to me.

"Yo Fu," he said. "What is it?"
"You should come over here." Fu Dog, Jake's animal guardian said. "I made a potion that should help with your dragon powers."
"Why would I need help with my powers?" Jake questioned. "I'm doing pretty good already."
"Maybe," Fu said. "But after that last battle, you could probably use the energy."
"Okay, Fu." Jake said. "I'll be right there." he hung up. "Yo guys, I gotta split." Jake said to his friends, before riding his skateboard to the shop.
When he got there, Fu wasn't there. He found a note on the potion shelf, and he read it. "Kid," Jake read to himself. "just drink the potion that says it'll create more power and life."
Jake looked at the potions on the shelf, until he came across a shining blue potion that read "Firtility" on the front label. Jake

The rain pounded on my car as I drove up the highway to my college. The sky was cloudy and it was rather chilly. I wanted to get back to the campus soon, or it would be too dark to see where I was driving. It had been a good visit back at mom and dad’s, but they had wanted to visit too long and I’d let time get away from me. It was 9 in the evening…and my housemates would probably be up watching TV or something. I didn’t want them teasing me about returning from home so late…because they’d done that before.
The guys I lived with had long put their family life behind them and very rarely visited their families at home. They often picked on me about visiting my family during certain weekends like this one. Because it was the weekend, I had decided to drive home to visit my mom and dad for a while. Unlike the guys, I missed them and I don’t get to see them very often, especially ever since I started college. They were happy to see me of course,

A doppelganger of the cosmos -
I long to see my sisters and brothers
Spread across the light years
Like spilled milk.
I come not from pure light,
But from darkness, silence
Pure black, and right before it bursts -
I am alive right when I need to be
Even if it does not feel like it.
To be a relative of the Rock of Cashel,
Cousins of the Alps
Distant sisters of the Pacific Ocean
My brother the Amazon;
I am one with this universe,

Little TragedyThe snow just keeps falling,Little Tragedy1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And so do I.
Still can't get over this,
No matter how I try.
Despite all my reason and rationality,
I fall for a little tragedy,
Plagued by nightmares and anxiety,
Tired blue eyes, full of melancholy.
Many surprises in the situation.
The interest and infatuation,
The sudden openness and passion,
The tacitness and expulsion.
I kept wishing for things to turn around.
The brain knows while the heart believes.
But autumn pressed on,
And my hopes died with the leaves.
Now, the intense heat of her bedroom kiss,
Is contrasted starkly,
By the snow all around me.
Still, her shoulder was immensely colder.
The byproduct of so much irresponsibility,
Making me feel as though I'd lost everything.
In the end,
It was just a little tragedy.

Lest I rest through autumns crest
For many moons of discontent;
To thine soul mate, I professed
This cabin echoes my lament.
I wonder where thou hast gone
My once sanguine spirit of yore;
And why thy visage is withdrawn
From tranquil waves upon the shore.
I keep hearing whispers from the lake
Day by day, the voice draws nearer.
I find myself begin to shake
As the message becomes clearer.
“You have to…”
“I have to what?!”
“Please tell me!”
The spectral voice then faded away
I swear I’ve heard that voice before.
Before my mind begins to fray
I long to hear that voice once more.
I took the boat out passed the birch tree
Then sat there, floating for hours.
Yet could not resonate her voice with thee
Then sullen skies brought forth showers.
On those placid days that followed
I dreamt a dream of darken waves;
That engulfed me, yet left me hollowed
Deep beneath their watery graves.
Tis mid November, I still remember
I shall not leave this bed of

Mum, where have you gone?
The dream took you
Remember that birthday
When we had a clown?
He asked for my wish
And I said for you
To see Dad again.
He said he would
Grant me my wish
All I had to do was
Put a star in your tea
And add a drop of honey
Then you will see him
In your dream.
He asked if I was willing
To say goodbye
To who I wondered
But I said yes
Because saying yes would mean
And I swear
The clown was crying
So I made you tea
I even added three spoons of honey
Hoping you would find your dream
The sweetest of the sweet.
Why didn't you come back?
The next day
You were still dreaming
And the one after that
I had nothing but
My golden paper crown
The same one you gave me
For my birthday.
Before my heart dies
I want to see you again
The tea is ready
And I hope you are too
Because it'd be lonely to enter
The dreamworld with nobody
To welcome me.
Let me forever dream
Of being with you and dad
Of golden crowns

Somewhere...in the ocean
There is a whirlpool...that is...frozen
I no longer had anything keeping me bound to this world
You were my love, you were my chain, and my heart was a link
And I couldn't bear the thought of never seeing your face anymore
So my knees gave, as I let my thoughts break, and I forced myself to sink
Somewhere...in the darkness
There is a soul...which became faithless
All those memories down the drain
I feel the bitterness of hope
While my tears rain
I cannot cope
Somewhere...in the depths
There is a spark...cradled by emptiness
My pain will always remain in time
As I never wanted to let you go
But I still got left behind
Only to dwell in remorse
Somewhere...along the path
Came a point...where I couldn't stand
I knew there would be no moving on
And there would be no going back
Because I can't stand the thought
Of potentially losing any of that
Somewhere...in my mind
There is a time...when I loved my

It's tough not to sound soppy.
Honestly, I'm not used to having this. I'll never really be used to it. I'd been lonely for a long time before I met you. I didn't think I'd have the kind of relationship that you watch on the cinema screens or read about in novels. I genuinely thought I'd be alone forever.
How wrong I was.
You smiled at me as I walked into Falmer bar and we made eye contact. I returned the gesture nonchalantly. It had been a hard day so far four hours of academic obligations back to back. Getting up for 10am was still a struggle, even in my third year.
Your smile stuck in my head as I faced away from you, leaning against the bar counter. I ordered a portion of cheesy chips and walked through to the sofas in the back bar, grateful for an oppo
