I remove my hand
cloak my head
under gathering darkness.
I watched your downward fall
and now turn my face,
heart beating fast
I stride away,
not touched at all.
Your eyes told many secrets,
I knew them well.

into fathomless depths.
There will be no funeral
nor eternal rest
for this cold
Time's belabored guest
to linger always after all.
The beginning of a new ErrorYou're probably already used to everyone sayingThe beginning of a new Error8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
"OMG, you're eighteen."
This feeling of growing,
And beginning to become
A newer person, shining through-and-through
Though you're not much different than before,
You've reached a new height,
Now your old ceiling is your new floor.
As you stand upon this precipice,
Proud and defiant,
Welcoming the new tastes and sights of a life yet to live,
For you are the present.
Blissful, and glamorous.
And this is a new year
The beginning of a new error.
So breath in for the last, smile with a glimmer,
And leave the past,
Welcome the tomorrow!
Live the warmth,
And forget the sorrow
Today is a new day

Along this road,
Lost and empty

Whispers of the darkIt's the deep breaths,Whispers of the dark6 months ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
The dark depths,
The walls always closing in,
Everybody dropping hints,
Never know when the bombs are gonna hit,
Not sure how i got myself down in this pit,
I don't know if I'm ever gonna see the light,
Don't know if
(when the time comes)
I'll chose wrong or right,
All i know is that
With these thoughts to haunt me
My demise will soon be upon me
Wrong or right will long be beyond me
And a shadow song,
That follows along with me,
Whispers of the dark.

SometimesWhen I first sawSometimes4 months ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Smile my way
I had a heart-attack
When I first heard
Say my name
I made a promise
Well that was fabricated,
Because at first I hated
But now I'm glad I waited
To make that feeling stated,
Don't feel the same.
You turn me in to something new
Turn my skies a new shade of bleu.
Don't think I can live without
You (Existing) You
Pick me up when I get all down
When I get to far in you help me out,
And that's how I know
For-give in for
What you have
Never thought you saw things
Seeing that maybe
Were all wrong
About it, shouldn't feel good
And yet I feel so good now
Nice to know that some how
Reality Is Far Less Exciting"Lucy?"Reality Is Far Less Exciting8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
A voice calls
and I step down from my throne
upon the crest of this hill
away from my friends
(the trees, the long grass and the tulips)
back through the mirror
into the mundane world
of neatly rowed desks
and obedient children
not a hair out of place
nor a single unauthorized whisper
and they wonder why,
when my name is called
I am absent:

ButtonThere's a reason you're called Button,Button7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
because names aren't just something to be
thrown around with reckless abandon
so I'll give you the reason:
buttons hold things together,
they make use of holes in the fabric
with tiny threads as their only tethers
rather than simply giving up and letting go;
they're small, but they are also incredibly tough and
they might get scratched and chipped,
but that never stopped a button from holding on
and even with all of this, they still manage to be as cute as-
yes that's right- and perfect friends, too
because no matter what happens they'll never give up on you.
So I thought I'd let you know just how grateful I am
(and how greatful you really are), that I'm proud to be friends with

I don't mind early morning music
I see you wishing
dear, darling young woman
realizations will regret sleep deprivation

my wildest dreams speeding away

in the end I don't exist to you

Important PapersThere must be some sort of irony in the factImportant Papers6 months ago in Scraps More Like This
that to one whose life is so filled with ink
and dependent on pen
-as they do in this moment-
papers never meant as much to me
that fleshandblood were always so much more important
more important than words could ever be and
what thread could ever tie us so closely
as my heart long since had?
Sweat and tears were the callouses I loved
and the markings we carefully tread by
but now, with this sort of freedom at last
I have important papers to thank for you.

sleep and let the night
take me where I never was before
with centuries whispered into your being
you crave only the warmth of the forbidding sun.
False eternityDisillusioned youth was less common in those days,False eternity7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I assure you, the people even more set in their ways,
murderous and unforgiving, yet unaware of the lie they were living
convinced that faith is stone, they cut faces into gods, they thought
ignorant of the fact that being made rendered useless the very gods they wrought.
Shiny carvings into stone, faces, figures, blessed unknown,
Murders, slaughters, sacrifices of the weak, preaching sins and what they seek.
Forgiveness is not for all, all who do not have will now fall!
Greed consumes the mortal mind, rage is all that's left behind!
Amidst it all I rose and found the sun, disowned him for the moon
then sought the horizon, again and again warned my father that doom
would befall him if he didn't seek a better way to live and be
I wasn't willing to follow the dark and deadly rules,
trying to bring some light into the lives of these fools.
Guilds of anti-gods were formed, wars rose higher, nothing to atone!

Without LightThey were my windows once,Without Light8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Everything is dark
allowing light and a cool breeze
No more can I see the light
to wash over me in my quiet little room,
No more does it warm my eyes
and through them were the world, to see
Why is everything so dark and cold?
an ever-changing fantasy,
Where did everyone go…
until my windows closed
Someone turned out the light
and darkness shrouded me
And I can’t find the light switch on my own
and stagnant air filled the space around me
I feel so alone
I was left in a void, unable to know anything for sure,
I was left in the dark, unable to know anything for sure
when I had taken so much for granted.
I took it all for granted, everything I saw and now I can’t even remember what it was to be able to see.

The Iron MirrorSociety needed a monster on which to blame it's flaws,The Iron Mirror7 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
They ended creating a nightmare which fed on their laws,
A mirrored reflection of their hate that gave it back double,
No morals, no name, an empty shell with eyes apparently humble.
A smile made for the sole purpose of conquering trust,
Eyes inspiring safety, a mere veil for the blood-lust,
Feared for the thoughts and words that he spoke,
A three meters distance was kept from him since he awoke.
Feel the sorrow of the solitude of the monster,
Accept his pain as he becomes even angrier.
"The name proves nothing, nor does my faith,
I will break your bones just simply to bathe
in the blood of the ones that have created me.
The nightmare in the iron mirror you will all see."
