Words on the WallThe sun melted into the glamorous skyWords on the Wall3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The moon stood there, hidden by sweet lullabies.
But mommy was crying, her day had been hard
The tears in her eyes twinkled just like the stars.
Her face wasn't happy like it should have been
And though she was saddened, she forcefully grinned.
I wanted to see Mommy smile through it all...
I painted a picture on her bedroom walls.
I told her to look, just to come in and see
But Mommy was angry... she wasn't happy.
She threw me down hard on the cold wooden floor
Then picked me up, slamming my head on the door.
She yelled and she screamed, then she hit me once more
She slapped me till I couldn't see anymore.
My heart then stopped beating, my laugh went unheard
Then Mommy got up without saying a word.
She looked at the walls splattered with my young blood
Then fell to the ground in her tears with a thud.
She looked at my face, then she looked all around
Then wrote on the walls with the first thing she found.
Then, after she finished, she wanted self h
Save YourselfDear mommy…Save Yourself2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I could have saved you.
I know you promised me you’d save yourself,
But I should have known you were lying.
I could have protected you.
I know you said you were fine,
But I should have been able to see all the tears behind your eyes…
The lies, I should have seen straight through them,
I should have known better than to believe you,
I should have known better.
I should have known.
I should have saved you...
I'm sorry Mommy.
I shouldn't have let you save yourself.

Literature is no different
Written by ChristheZorua
I write because I love it
I create because I love it
I wish because I dream it
But is it different?
Is writing a difference?
Will words change a picture?
Can words be visual?
Words are visual on the double spectrum
Inside the mind and on the page
Forever we stand on both
And make way to similarities
And a brighter generation
Art is art. Literature is art.
Drawing is art.
Do not bias
Unrequited LoveHe always fawns over her.Unrequited Love5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She doesn't even care about him.
He should open his eyes and see
That the one who can make him happy is with him already.
I always have to keep my true feelings a secret.
He doesn't know how much it hurts.
I really wish that he'd just see that I can make him happier than she ever can.

Her Song.She holds on to your memory.Her Song.2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Keeps your picture near at all times.
Dark curls and green eyes.
Perfect white teeth.
A sharp chin.
When she sits down at the keyboard to play;
She'll hear the words in her ears:
The sound of love.
'I love it when you smile..'
Her fingertips grace the keys, black and white.
Turning pink and red.
'You ARE beautiful'.
The sound of countless sunsets fills the dusty room.
Your arm flits around her shoulders, it is but a memory.
Just a memory.
You are a ghost that listens to her talk to herself.
You are the air against her lips.
You're nothing but a memory.
The sound of picnics in the park graces your ears.
She never would have done this without him.
A helping voice in her ears;
'B flat. No, no baby, B flat.'
The sound of heartbreak fills the room.
She has to stop the song.
You won't come back.
She went, all dressed in black.
A single rose.
And a tissue under her nose

Why is your beautiful face full of fright?
Please hand me the knife my dear.
I want to see you live through this night.
Why are you sad my love?
Why are you hiding from me?
Please don't hide because they called you queer.
I can't be happy if you can't be.

I will stop him without any doubt.
Why are you so small sister?

She wasn't worth more than one kiss.
Why are you all like this?
Why do you lie to us all?
Please try to understand me.
You were beautiful before.

Sometimes, when I'm sad

In the old old house... my days will simply
And that day,
The day when my heartbeat is
The day when my breath
Truly gets taken away.
That's the day
When my worries, my concerns, my fears...

You didn't stop walking, so I stood there and cried.
I thought that you loved me, like I loved you.
But it's clear that you don't,
It's so sad, but true.
So I decided to choose my fate,
To start over, open a new gate.
And you want me back, but with tears all dry,
This is where I utter goodbye.

His words are swords
His beatings are cruel
His love for you
In a sea of cruelty and despair.
"Please don't hurt me," you cry
Your last words as poison
In the air.
"Shut up," he screams,
His words echoing through
The cold and lonely bedroom.
he sinks a knife into your chest
The blood pouring out
The pain of the blade
Couldn't compare to the pain of

I ask you to kiss your scars goodnight,
Because one day, I promise they will fade into yesterday,
And be erased for the next tomorrow.
Your most frightening nightmares could transform
Into your most glorious daydream.
Remember to say goodbye to your tears,
Because once they leave,
It will be quite a while before they do return.
Darling, lift your sleeves,
And show the world that what was once hidden
Behind fear and lost emotions,
Is now exposed and ready to flee from your
I ask you to kiss your scars goodnight,
Because one day…
I promise, they will fade into yesterday…
And be erased into eternal tomorrows.

To stand in your presence?
Do you even acknowledge me?
This, I'm afraid, is a mystery to me,
For I do not feel like I'm going to be
Good enough for anyone
Am I good enough
To be on the team?
To stand side by side,
With a smile, big and wide?
Because I don't feel like I'll ever be
Good enough for the team,
Or even good enough for me.
When will I be good enough,
Good enough for me?

For you to come back to me
I feel like you've forgotten
Like you no longer see
You once told me you're my friend,
And yes, I trusted you,
But was it just a lie?
Was is never true?
I sit here all alone,
Waiting for your return,
And each second you ignore me,
My heart begins to burn.
I'm afraid that I have lost you,
I'm afraid you left me here,
I'm afraid you now hate me,
You left me here in fear.
I try to find comfort,
From the things you once said,
All your kind words,
Spinning in my head.
I smile at that thought,
And I hold it tight,
I will not let go,
Until you return one night.
So please come back my friend,
I need you here with me.
Please open your eyes,
Please begin to see....

In the shadowy nights of winter
A secret is told in grief
Of a spirit who sings a horrid tune
Who swims the southern reef
She has a gift that can heal the sick
And bring the dead back
So I search for her in a sad pursuit
To ask for the soul I lack
Getting along in my rusty canoe
I heard her echoing call
And turned to find her scaly body
Standing fifty meters tall
She raised a massive blade sharp fin
And sliced my boat down
Which sent me skidding into the water
Below the dark seas crown
I surfaced to see her struck out
Not a single harpoon amiss
And in an instant her massive body
Changed back into a fish
Her small pearly scales gleamed
As she floated to the coast
The two fishermen who attacked her
Slowly approached in their boats
I rushed to shore and snatched her up
Running into the woods
And I quickly heard the barking
Of the two men and their wolves
As the darkness grew around us
I found myself trapped
Between a wall of brick & stone
With the hunters at my back
They ordered me to cou

smooth tongue on my neck
lips in constant movement
but much is left unsaid
we simply make no sense
and yet here you are
i so want to believe
but doubts weigh down my heart
how could this still feel right
how are you so sure
strong walls are crumbling down
no longer insecure
my pulse is still unsteady
but my thoughts all dissolve
now fully consumed by you
all control is now lost

To this broken dove
Show her happiness
tell her she is loved
Will someone please just help her
Lend her a gentle hand
Raise her in a way
That she can understand
Will someone please just notice

And slowly, every second
her worlds falling apart
She pleads for your forgiveness
She begs you for your love
Please will someone notice

Maybe I don't know what's wrong
Maybe I can't talk about it
But maybe I need you to listen
Maybe the cuts get deeper each time
Maybe too much blood comes out
Maybe you'll try and stop me
But maybe I won't listen
Maybe I want to tell someone
Maybe I need to unload all of my problems
Maybe you're the only one who can help
But maybe I don't want to bother you with my troubles
Maybe I'm just scared
Maybe I've lost hope
Maybe I'm losing control
But maybe I was never in control to begin with
Maybe I like the way things are
Maybe I'm afraid of change
Maybe I get a kick out of being so messed up
But maybe I'd rather be a normal girl
Maybe I don't like people
Maybe I can't live without them
Maybe I need you
But maybe I don't like the way you tear up my heart
Maybe I'm insane
Maybe I'm depressed
Maybe I'm just stressed
But maybe that's who I am
Maybe I need to be accepted
Maybe I'll change who I am for that

Wish You Were HereSo, so you think can you tell,Wish You Were Here8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
-Pink Flyod, Wish you were here
So, so you think you can tell,
If it is love, or fake?
When you have half
Of your heart
around your neck,
And he never takes off
his other half of it.
When your legs are
underneath where none sees,
when hands are forbidden.
When he catches you,
Even if you are not falling.
When he is all you
Ever think about.
When he is the only one
that can make you blush.
When you can count the stars,
Even if it's a cloudy sky.
When he plays your favorite song,
On his guitar just for you.
When he throws you in a pool in January,
But jumps in after you to see if you are okay.
When he kisses you at midnight,
In his own backyard,
On news years eve.
When you sleep on his chest,
While he protects you from thunderclaps.
When you cover the driveway,
With colourful chalk,
And it starts to rain and wash it off
but you dont care.
When he skips school when you are sick

May his guidance be astute
And his presence worthy

Among the arts of water
And the divine instruments of hydrogen
