AddictionHave you ever wanted something so bad that you could taste itAddiction5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That you can't get enough if it
You stand there helpless
Knowing you're a complete mess
But you just can't stop
You have to have more
So that your head can soar
Just for a little while
Then it's back to being broken
Back to your messed up life
Back to horror
Back to strife
And you crave the escape
The liberty from it all
Even with the painful fall
Anything you can get you will take
And every free thought you can make
Is controlled by the addiction
And you know it
They can all see it
You can feel it
But you won't stop it
Because once you're in
You can't get out
Not by yourself
AddictionIt's a virus that feedsAddiction4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Off of the weak
And the condemned
After the first bite
Not wanting to let go
Even though you stumble
Into a isolated darkness
The need grows more and more
Killing you slowly everyday
But you don't care
That belief of empty needs
Fill your brain
Rotting you from
The inside out
But you don't care
As long as you have
Your hollow friend
Your false savior
Everyone leaves you
Because you chose
It over them

When the Carrotians won their last great galactic war with the Primari from the star system Magenta, an endurance battle that lasted for nearly nine hundred years of shooting at tacky primary coloured Duplo-like spaceships with very annoying Colour Reflector Shields and deadly Confetti Scatter Beams, their empire finally flourished with a whopping thirty two star systems, twenty four inhabited planets, forty five inhabited moons, a few dozen interesting asteroids and one rather nifty black hole.
However, the Carrotians got rather bored with the whole conquering business pretty quickly as the job of supreme interstellar tyrant turned out to involve far more paperwork and systematic genocide as they ever had imagined. Most galactic races would die just to get into the position of ultimate power the Carrotians were in, and many did. But that's not the point. As for we must not forget that the Carrotians always remain in the first place a race of deeply creative people, of artists. The who
Pale Winter SunEmbedded in the grass, dead leaves are fitted with icy suits of armor..Pale Winter Sun2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And only when the sun bathes them in the morning do they cast away the battle of the night.
I can see the transformation as the light crawls across the ground.
Ice prevails in shadow.. Shrinks in the sun.
Leaving a stark, dividing line where the heat has not yet traveled.
In this deepening November..
I find the cold can no longer reach into my bones the way it used to.
The frost now melts on the surface.
Leaving the marrow within warm and undisturbed..
Untouched. Finally allowed to mend the fissures of the past.
At dawn, I'm comforted by the hazy pink of the sunrise.
Fascinated by the jagged edges of the ice, slowly dissipating on the windshield.
And all at once, I'm met with emotions I feared had left me forever.
The frailty of youth, the caress of wonder, and the undulled sting of honest longing.
Unlike the leaves and plants..
The harshness of winter can no longer stall the life coursing through my body.
It can n

As the days grow cold
And the nights dark
It's your sunshine that
Keeps me at ease
Even on the gloomiest of days
when the clouds reign the skies
And a bitter breeze brushes by
So paint me in your sunshine
for me to follow hand in hand
Remember me by your side
So I can keep my ray of sunshine
Love Letters On the TrainDear Stranger,Love Letters On the Train2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm leaving this post-it tucked in the side of the train-seat. If you're reading this, you've seen it. I've seen you sit here every few Monday mornings, sometimes tapping a bent, unlit cigarette against your thigh, sipping from your tea (who brings a tea cup onto a train anyway?); sometimes staring at the rain outside, or reading your well-worn, beaten copy of Jane Eyre (I hate that you fold the corners down - it's bibliophilic abuse. I wish the book would papercut you to defend itself a little, but I digress).
You seemed so sad this Monday morning past. Please smile again. I love it when your eyes catch the light of something I'm unaware of, something silently and intimately your own; a secret from the world that makes everything all the more meaningful to you.

I'm not in the habit of reading post-its from strangers. I found a love-letter hidden in a newspaper once, that the author forgot or was too afraid to send. It made me sad to think
RelapseHere we go again.Relapse9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Another panic attack,
Just when I thought I was done.
Well, ain’t it fun,
To be a nervous wreck?
Only I’m a big kid now.
To be the resident
When you’re not beautiful.
God, I sound emo.
And so maybe I am
(by definition, at least)
But I feel like a sham –
What am I to you?
Would you care
If I lived out my dark little fantasies?
Got swallowed by the dark seas,
Of my soul?
Would you care
If I went back to the blade
That you forbade
Me to seek solace in?
If you knew what went on in my head,
A million different ways
To make me dead,
Would you tell me to just
‘Not feel down’ anymore?
If I could stop feeling this way,
Stop thinking like this?
You'll Never DieHear me read it!You'll Never Die2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
They say that if a writer falls in love with you then you never really die.
Instead your body is laid out in its funerial shrouds and moulds are made. Soft impressions of you to be pressed onto the blank faces of future loves.
Every time I write of taking comfort in a safe place in a storm, it will be your forearm. Every half-made smile will be on your lips, and every touch will be constructed from the residue beneath your fingernails.
When I metaphise of trees' blood, the leaves that give the energy so that a willow can provide shade for those in need, it will be your blood, it will be your light drenched kisses.
Every tear on every face will taste of the sweat that you put into keeping me happy. Every soaring song of love will be played through your windpipe, your trachea my instrument of choice.
For every time that a hero has the strength to walk on, I will use your feet. I will weld them to my own and walk a mile. Wal

The daughter of life
His eyes dark cold and icy
Hers light and airy
Light flickers through
Enhancing her innocence
Darkness surrounds him
Shielding his heart
What happens when these two cross?
The king of death and the daughter of life
Does she wither and wait
to accept her fate
or does she warm his shielded heart?
What happens when these two fall in love?
Can happiness reside where light cannot?
or will it slowly flicker away until it is no more
and give into the darkness around her?
They say even the smallest bit of light
Will shine in the darkness
Until it finally gives in
and flickers away
So what will happen
When she finally gives up
and fades away
Will he want her then?
or toss her away?
No one knows
Not one can say
What will happen
