Heart beats thump.
I'm alone in the dark
With demons surround.
I am alone I've been alone,
Ever since you left me.
How I yearn,
For your comfort
And your hugs.
I was safe
When you held me.
I was brave
With you by my side.
Now I am
There is no one
To protect me,
To ease my fear.
I stand alone
In the dark.

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

Slick paced but knew staying fit wasn’t going to save him from the inevitable execution. Old habits died hard. Besides, it gave him something to do.
At least the interrogations were over. There would be no more questions about why he betrayed the Republic. He only had a week left to live.
Footsteps hurried down the hall outside his cell. The steel door to his cell gave him more privacy than his last cell, which had a force field door but it also cut him off from the world. The footsteps paused outside his cell.
Slick stopped pacing. What were they doing? He’d been fed less than an hour ago. Had his execution date been moved up? Might as well get it over with.
The door whooshed open. Two clones dressed in the red armor of the guards stood in the doorway. Beside them, a younger clone in prison garb watched the hallway. Since he looked to be about fourteen, Slick guessed he was seven.
Slick squinted. The two guards weren’t watchin

You have been called and suffered many terrible things, haven't you?
Fatso? Gay? Whore? Slut? Ugly? Pitiful excuse for a person? Worthless piece of crap? Faggot? Useless nobody?

Blanking Out The Bad DaysI don’t like to keep blanking out the bad thoughtsBlanking Out The Bad Days1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As this means missing out on whole days
In fact weeks, months and years are passing me by
Which tells me this is not just a phase
But that’s not what my loved ones like to believe
They tell me it’s my age and will soon pass
Their turpentine optimism is misplaced
As my future begins to fade like brass
I don’t like to keep blanking out the bad days
But of late I do not have much choice
See anytime someone asks if I’m okay
A tremble can be heard in my voice
Somehow though I always keep it together
Like a jigsaw laid out on a table
But when I am alone I fall to pieces
In a box with a ‘parts missing’ label
I don’t like to keep blanking out the voices
But they question each decision I make
And lure me into troubles as if they’re a puddle
When they turn out to be a lake
That is always just one foot deeper in depth
Than my fragile frame is tall in height
And I know if I keep blanking out th
Lost LoveShe was precious as a flowerLost Love2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
That had come close to a frost,
Like a bird flying in the wrong direction
That would never admit to being lost.
She was beautiful as a butterfly’s wing
Just catching at the air,
And she’d find her way into your heart
Before you even knew that she was there.
She was tantalizing as a summer breeze
And delicate as lace.
She’d go wherever the wind took her,
And would be gone without a trace.

You already know the answer so
Don't waste your time.
Pretend to care.
It doesn't matter that you
If you lie she'll
Stick around a little longer
For the sake of something
Don't be too careful.
She's not fragile she just
Cries a lot.
Forget to tell her
How you feel.
She'll assume the worst,
But that's okay.
She feels like she
Deserves it anyways.
Call her fat.
(Then say you're joking.)
That way she'll stop eating,
But you won't be at fault because
She can't take a joke.
Go away for a long time
And then carry on like
All she needs is to
Feel like someone cares.
As long as you keep coming back,
She'll keep waiting for you.
Don't worry about it.
She will love you again
At the words,
"I'm sorry dear,
I'm lucky to have you."

Little Bird AfraidI was singing my heart out through all of the tearsLittle Bird Afraid1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Like a bird chirping in sorrow through a waterfall
All of my friends had long since taken to the sky
And with my lungs full of air I sung out one last call
I had spread my wings out as wide as they would go
To show the world there was potential in me
But I was never brave enough to take flight with them
So was unable to become who I was meant to be
Now I will sing my song to the world one last time
In hope that someone just like me will hear my words
May they echo over the mountains and the seas
Until they meet someone’s ear and can be heard
I want to inspire others to live their life full
But in doing so I have to ask myself why
Can I not just begin my journey again
Is it ever really too late to learn to fly?
I’ve always been a little bird inside a cage
With a door that forever remains open wide
I was just too afraid to try and fly away
But now I see that I no longer need to hide
So I will come from the shadows with my bi

[Male Name] leaned over the railing of the viewpoint, taking in a deep breath. The new boy, Yukkiteru was stood beside him, seemingly doing the same thing.
Hinata had ran off a couple of minutes ago, sprinting down the steps and further down the path. They could hear her giggles for a good minute after she dissapeared, before there came silence.
Deciding that they should rest a little longer, every one else stood around the viewpoint, staring off at something or other. [Male Name] turned his head to find a pink glare directed straight at him, and he immdediately felt a shiver go down his spine. Ever since he'd exited the school, that girl, Yuno Gasai, would not stop staring.
It wasn't like how you'd stare at your crush. It wasn't like how you'd stare at a sibling for stealing something of yours. That girl's stare held nothing but pure hate. [Male Name] had never felt so hated. He was a popular guy that got on wit

Could she be the angel God gave to me?
I’d always thought angels had wings,
She’d traded them for the love she brings,
She sensed in me a tender fear,
“Don’t be afraid, please come near,
My lonely one, why can’t you see?
I don’t need wings, have faith in me.”
“Why are you afraid of what you feel?”
Forgive me; I can’t believe you’re real,
“Why fill your soul with so much doubt?”
“Let your imagination out!”
“We heard you calling out at night,
I see those scars, they’re burning white”
She told me that I would forget
But not these scars, full of regret…

I’ll show you what your life could be.”
I took her hand, I took the leap,
Aimed for the life were I don’t weep,

Heartbeat of a GhostI sit all alone in the darknessHeartbeat of a Ghost7 months ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Silence surrounds me everywhere
Breathing is the only sound I hear
I continue to sit here pondering nothing
But wait, what’s that sound I now hear?
A new sound fills this room, growing louder
It seems to be getting closer, the rhythm quickens
I look around for the source, but come up empty
I grow scared, fearful of the unknown
But as I listen, I sense a familiarity
I know what the sound is, a heartbeat
But not just any heartbeat, your heartbeat
Could it be possible? How can I hear such things?
Your heart was buried six feet under as was your body
Or was it? Could it be my mind playing tricks on me?
Does my mind long to hear your heartbeat so much?
So much so, that it’s making me hear nonexistent sounds?
Am I missing you more than I think I am?
Am I not really over your death like I thought I was?
Hearing this brings back memories of all those days
When I would lay my head against your chest
And do nothing but listen to your heartbeat

From my visage, my mien and my face
My adult self not able to regain
What it is my childhood has misplaced
The absence has become more apparent
And is there for the assemblage to see
But as it did not happen over night
The origin remains a mystery
Could it be the colour and the tone
Of my sallow skin pigmentation
From too many hours indoors alone
And within my imagination
Perhaps I should pierce my ear and nose
Rebel against a faceless system
Or indeed tattoo text upon my neck
Quoting some so-called ancient wisdom
I could iron out all of the creases
Nip and tuck on my pronounced cheek bones
But this would mean erasing my journey
So I might never find my way home
And none of these things in any case
Will ever change the person that I am
Or influence the mood of the others
Like a timely facial expression can
From limbic system to nerve and muscle
To the countenance conveyed on my face
So complex that even Mona Lisa’s mood

Good girls are really bad girls that never got caught
Kings and queens are insecure people that hide behind their forts.
Survivors are cowards that run away when they could’ve fought.
Celebrities are strategists and opportunists that utilise their thoughts
Teachers are failures who couldn’t make use of the lessons life taught.
It would seem then you are either one way or the other.
There is fine undefined line between enemies and lovers.
So pick and choose wisely when deciding what side you are on.
Because you can never know the person you one day might become.

Please take me now or leave me here

I have proof that love isn’t real
That souls are worth nothing
But I felt my spirit leaving me
While my life was ongoing
Maybe I’m over sentimental
And listen to poets too much
Maybe I’ll believe in what I feel
Not only what I can touch
Oh Lord, I don’t need to smile
Lord, I don’t need no laughter

Or the way his fingers are pressed into my hips.
Maybe it’s the kisses brushed over my skin—
I can’t find where his body ends
Or where mine begins.
We are twined together, soft hands and cold feet.
We are joined as one;
I can feel his heart beat.
And the sheets fall around us, silky and slight,
I can see him smile in the fading dusk light.
He holds me like no one has ever held me before:
Like I am precious and beautiful,
like I am vital and pure.
His stormy eyes light upon my face, his fingers knot my hair
And I cling tight to his frame—I need him like the air.
He touches me so softly I might be as delicate as a bird,
And I whisper for the first time
those three simple words.

when I say keep walking I shouldn’t have to ask,
for you to move along and advert your eyes,
which seem to be stuck on my bare thighs,

and no I do not feel flattered,
when you talk about climbing me like a new bought ladder,
so would you be so kind and advert your gaze,
and dirty comments would you refrain.
My body isn’t here for you to fanaticize,
this isn’t a game with me as the prize,
the skirt I wear isn’t an invitation,
for you to go ahead with your vile recreation.
I shouldn’t be scared to dress as I want,
yet when showing skin you think that I flaunt,
around my body for your eyes to trace,
the pain from you I can never erase,
when your dirty taunts turn to actions,
and you violate me in the lie you call passion.
I shouldn’t have to be bundled in sweaters,
dressed to the neck in all

Has been a prologue to the tale of you
Those mistakes that you have made in your childhood
They may be many or they may be few
But please don’t allow them to shape or to shift
The person that you were born to become
Keep in mind that the night is at its darkest
In the moments before we see the sun
I see pure potential run through your being
In your soul, deep beneath your callow skin
A unique story is waiting to be told
That the world will never see again
And though it begins with ‘once upon a time’
This is not a sugar spun fairytale
Each chapter and verse now lies in your hands
And is waiting for your dreams to prevail
Seek not perfection as mistakes will be made
It is repeating them that is a sin
Learn from others but don’t let their views smother
As hindsight in such a wonderful thing
Fear no one, fear nothing, never hestitate
Don’t let them measure your wisdom by age
Now you’ve gazed upon that cover long

The distant yet vicinal sun is about to set
The sky has spent the day reminding me of life
Where as the ground I lie on reminds me of death
The green grass is growing through the thick brown soil
But I reflect on how it’s constantly dying too
I see each blade reaching to the sky for answers
In the same way that you and I seem to do
So taking this prompt from nature I raise my head
And use my infant hand to bring shade to my face
I see that the sun is falling behind the hills
But up in the sky it has left behind a trace
There is a rusty red glow high up above me
So I look to my father and I ask him why
He bends down to his daughter and whispers in my ear
My little princess, those are roses in the sky
