He Died In May.His empty eyes,He Died In May.2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Were filled with pain,
And those fragile lips,
Stained with smiles.
There was warmth,
In his touch,
But it always left,
Tendrils of ice.
His musical voice,
Fell like midnight snow.
Each word a note,
In his own requiem.
It was years ago
That I first saw,
All the demons
Nested in his head.
I was arrogant,
That I could save him,
He'd been dead for so long,
A ghost with human skin,
But no one could ever see,
Behind his gentle grin.
Were the last words
He left for me,
On that bitter note.
He died in May,
So many years back,
But they pronounced him dead
The Four Kisses pt 1"You want a kiss, Kix?"The Four Kisses pt 13 years ago in Humor More Like This
The medic of the 501st nearly dropped the bacta pack he was holding as he whipped around to stare at the woman standing in the doorway.
"Do I want a what?," he asked, perplexed.
"A kiss," Samantha said simply as she walked in,"A small, sweet little treat for you."
She hopped up easily on the counter and stilled. He had a feeling that she was watching him expectantly and once again driving him nuts that he couldn't see her eyes. No matter what outfit she wore, there was always a hood covering her eyes. Well, not in formal outfits he had seen her wear, but she did make it so that she had something covering half of her face so that the only thing seen was her lips. Kix had a feeling even under the hoods they'd be seen. They were such a dark red for humans, as well as her skin tone, it was mind boggling to him.
What was even more mind boggling was her offer. A kiss? Where did that come from? She'd never shown an interest in him...unless she kept it to herself. She w
Sorrow's SongI needed something to clear my mind.Sorrow's Song1 year ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I needed someone I left behind.
I lost myself inside my Shadows.
Now I’ll never be free.
I thought love would conquer all.
I trust you,
But you let me fall.
Despair took over, and then I knew.
I wasn’t real.
Not to you.
Starlight gleams beyond my window,
But I’m trapped in this world I made.
A place of refuge from all my tears.
Tears I shed for you.
Softly whispers consume my mind.
I look for answers, but all I find
Is shattered pieces of a different time.
Who I was before you.
InjectionHey red snake, slip down my arm -Injection2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Stain my wrists & the floor;
Not for long, my blood is warm -
It hits me hard, the pleasure starts...
But now it's fading.
My mind is weak, my hands are raw.
I'm begging, please! You've got me on my knees.
You're in my head twisting threads
I'm stuck inside your web.
Trapped like a fly, just waiting for death.
Why did you come back?
Wont you leave me alone!
My porcelain composure is cracking under your willpower of stone.
The demon in my heart has reawakened with a jolt -
Your almighty hand just won't let go.
I'm fighting for control.
Release my heart - untie my mind...
I'm struggling for freedom;
Im trapped! Blind.
In the distance, so far I see,
What being with you has done to me.
A Poem For YouLaying in bed,A Poem For You2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Insomnia starts again.
Book in hand,
Twirling my pen.
Steam shoots from my brain.
Eyes close shut,
I start feeling pain.
Background turns black,
Nothing in sight.
A door comes closer,
Pushing and pushing with my might.
I hear a voice,
It sounds familiar.
I turn to see,
You standing on a pillar.
A white smile.
I want to stay,
For a long while.
You float down,
Standing with him.
My sight grows dim.
You both disappear,
Nowhere in sight.
My heart keeps bouncing,
Struggling in this fight.
Why won't it stop?
What do I do?
Was it from you?
I'm under a spell.
I drop to my knees,
I feel weak,
Cold and alone,
My eyes start to leak.
Seeing you with him,
And not with me.
Seeing you smile,
And me without glee.
Suddenly I wake,
From one simple purr.
And without her.
Seeing my book,
I see this poem.
I'm in my dome.
I hear her voice,
I turn my head.
Dark Angels.Disguised as mortal,Dark Angels.11 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Reeking darkness undercover.
These creatures cannot fall,
The shade is their lover.
Lurking the city shades,
Tourn wings blending the ebony back.
Within seconds eerie is made,
Murdering light and its track.
They were once mortal,
Preyed on by the dark.
Tormented to the fall,
Leaving this sinister mark.
Running their blood cold,
They live to kill.
As if obeying as told,
Yet from it recieving a thrill.
Looking as though human,
Many foolish cross them,
Unaware they are far from Man,
Death is all that is cursed them.
Innocent lives lost,
They just laugh on,
For though to them, it has no cost,
They are already long gone...

"It is rather spacious," Owen said, "Compared to most residential bathrooms. However, it is the smallest of the castle bathrooms, and also the only one with a spare room so near it."
"Look at this!" Nadja ignored Owen and climbed into the tub. "I think I can almost swim in this! And-oh my God-are those jets? Is this one of those Jacuzzi tubs?"
"The jets have three settings, the highest of which is quite useful for relieving tension in the lower back," Owen said dryly.
"You have a Jacuzzi tub too?" Nadja asked. "Does that just come standard with working for Mister Xanatos or do you live in a penthouse apartment?"
"Mister Xanatos spared no expense as to the comfort of the living quarters here," Owen said. "As for my residence, I have a suite of rooms here in the Eyrie building."

Don’t forget to wipe the blade.

Just how paler is my face
After blood froze in my veins
The bitter kiss of betrayal.

Six feet under pain.
Give me roses,
So the maggots can have dessert.

Infect my peace,
As needs and longing
Continue their increase.
My need to love
Continues to grow.
When Ill feel it again,
I just dont know.
But I need to know now,
Of its full amount.
I was in love once,
I was in love twice.
But such a small number
Will not suffice.
I need to know how much
Love Im meant to live,
And how much love
I need to give.
As I attempt repose,
Ghosts always stalk
My limitless potential
And swoop upon it like a hawk.
I am left bereft,
Laid out like carrion.
My soul is dead and exposed,
With no one to bury it.
And why, you may ask,
Is there so much written?
Its because someone
With whom I was smitten
Left me without a goodbye.
She probably saw
That Im likely to die,
So I have no future
With her anymore,
My heart dashed to the floor,
Scattered to the winds and more,
Penniless and without hope,
A constant mope
And a consummate dope.
I truly meant nothing,
So I suffer for my art
Until its time to depart.

Double Standard WorldWe tend to break it down to,Double Standard World2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
minutes, days, years;
to lengthen the torture and
to slow our growing fears.
It’s hard not to notice; the
broken souls wandering alone,
smiles acting as masks, and
desperate bullies looking for home.
We seek for our belief in the wrong places;
in parties and nameless pills in bowls,
in greedy money and unfamiliar people,
when we should seek within our own soul.
We all give reasons and excuses but
when others splinter our hearts,
the forgiveness that we expect is lost,
and logic is quickly torn apart.
We live in a double standard world,
where what we expect of others
is not expected in ourselves and
we no longer act as sisters and brothers.
Perhaps we are all prisoner to our pain,
manacled and bound;
and if you look there’s insanity in it all,
everywhere to be found.

To fight for those that have fallen

For he means the world to me
And I feel safer now at night
Knowing he's watching over me

Three long months in Paris Island
And he's a Marine until he dies
So Shed a tear for the Marine
For he is not allowed to cry
He is more than just a soldier
He is a friend to all mankind
Touch of DeathShe strikes her finger across her palmTouch of Death1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
As if she's lighting a match
And she uses the heat to make skin go cold
As her finger lays upon the pale color
And in their mind - the world goes frozen
It's myth to many, but on the inside...
We know it's something we just don't admit:
The truth in what this woman's capabilities are
When she lays down her middle finger
It's said you're damned to Hell
You'll be Satan's slave to work
When she lays down her index finger
It's said you're pointed to Heaven
You'll meet God with no guarantee
When she lays down her ring finger
It's said you're married to Earth
You'll live spirited in this world
We've all heard the stories
Of how she sends her enemies to Hell
During her nighttime free-time
We've all heard the stories
Of how she works as closure to some
From death bed straight to heaven
We've all heard the stories
Of how she refuses to ever forgive
And she'll never let you die
They call her...

"Hello?" she called, not seeing anyone. "Who's there?"
"Who are you?" a hard female voice asked slowly.
"M-my name's Nadja. Who are you?"
The female stepped out of the shadows and paused a fair distance from Nadja. She looked older than Angela, though strikingly similar. She had soft skin the same blue as the summer sky, and her hair was an eye-burning crimson that matched her red lips. She stared at Nadja suspiciously.
"I've never seen you here before," the woman said flatly.
"I'm new in town, I guess," Nadja felt her hackles rising. "What's your name?"

Owen narrowed his eyes as he looked up at the statue placed delicately upon the parapet of Castle Wyverns outer wall. It was beautiful, slender, graceful, clad in extravagant garments carved with the utmost detail. And the face it was like that of an innocent child and an untouchable woman all at once. The blank eyes seemed to be just barely holding back weary tears, and the half-parted lips seemed to be forming a question, or a sigh perhaps. It was truly an exquisite piece.
It should also not have been there.
