When all is said and done
When she is raised accordingly
Until the setting sun?
Will she want to see me?
With tears that kiss her eyes
Will she even hear of me?
Please lord, don't let me cry
Will she want to see me?
As she begins to age
Will he even speak of me,
or leave me at the gate?
Will he tell his new angel,
about the one he lost?
Will he tell her happily
That the path I chose was Wrong?
Will she still want to see me?
If he fills her head with lies
Will she ever hear of me?
Will the hero in him die?
Will I ever get to see her?
This little girl I don't know
Will I ever get to comfort her,
from the monsters and the cold?
For now it stays a mystery,
if I'll ever see her face
If that little girl I long to know,
will ever call my name.
TransgenderTransgender I always thought strange.Transgender2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
What is in a pronoun change?
Don't understand what gender means.
Just a label it would seem.
Sealing yourself in a different box,
Boarded up, covered in locks.
Why can't we just break free?
Won't anyone join in with me?
No longer define by a gender.
No meaning behind him or her.
These labels won't get you far.
Everyone should be who they are.

but it was too broken,
too beaten, too dead
to deal with the emotions
i hid from my head
and the tears crashed down
like a sad little creak
i'm crying because
i am weak
My TreasureThere once was a treasure,My Treasure3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I held very dear.
He was beautiful,
And everything I ever wanted.
My heart was so content,
That I spent all my time with him,
Because I knew that what I had,
Was so precious.
I put all my time and effort into it.
But in the end,
He didn't see what he had.
He left me in the pit I dug myself,
To find my wondrous treasure,
The one I found him in,
And he buried me in the ground.
Now I guess I'll be someone's treasure.
But I won't take advantage,
Of the soul that looks for love.

whisper sweet secrets to each other's sigh.
I long to greet her, to shower her with
the same passions she awakens within
my blushing soul. I'm standing on a cliff,
about to plunge deep into a new grin.
She is so far, and yet so near! Buses
and planes can take me to where she resides.
I would embrace her; gone would be fusses:
there would be only us, no world besides.
I know a girl who captured my heart, who
lit a fire I cannot quench: perfect coup.
Longing for DirectionWhen I walked out,Longing for Direction3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I looked down the asfault road,
And found myself longing for the dirt.
I wanted to put on my jacket,
step onto the road,
and just start walking.
I wanted to go, and go, and go, and
Or at least not until I was done.
But instead, I turned to my chevy,
and drove on.
I drove the usual direction,
watching everyone in the traffic,
and my mind reeled.
I found that we,
We moved like worker ants,
everyone, everyone, going somewhere.
And that is what I'm facing,
in life, I will do the same thing habitually,
just like the little ants do.
And so will you.

Hooves and boots sinking away in the mud
As they stride over the fields like a flood
Walking for endless days and endless nights
Spotting the black banners over the enemies’ sites
As light reflects off their own shields’ bright white coloured stud
The knights brandish their sharp steel swords eager for some blood
And the archers draw their bows, now strained of all the fights
The king dressed in the night black clothes
Now stares blankly at the white king, whose
Army at last starts to draw close
The white king puts down his pint of booze
He smiles and says while rubbing his nose
''It's checkmate old friend and you lose''

Hush, don't make a sound.
Let the wind play its lullaby,

Can't you hear them?
They're closeby, listen

But maybe, and just maybe

you might hear their story

Of a love so legendary,
it could set Heaven ablaze,
of battles so fierce, no one

But the fates spoke, and
their hearts met in a single beat.
He was the king of Hell,
A creature of darkness and fear,
His life spent in bloodshed and battles,
never caring for a cry or a plea.
Bathing in a sea of blood and tears.
The king had no weakness to be told
She was a blazing angel of light,
So pure and tender, never knew what hate was like.
Fighting so the Lord's word could prevail,
always aiming towards the dying daylight.
Yet the wheel of time spun, and she fell astray

Words Of DeathYou didn't realize what you did to me.Words Of Death3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You sliced me open
Tore out, not just my heart,
But every single one of my veins.
You made sure I wouldn't have a pulse.
When you handed me that rose,
You knew it would wilt
And you foretold our outcome.
I didn't recognize it at the time,
But giving me that rose,
Was you giving me my heart,
And you taking yours.
Your heart was guarded so perfectly by my soul,
That when you gave mine back,
The body that was your hearts temple,
Rejected what you abandoned.
You live on with your health,
While I, inside,
Am rotting to my death.
Was my love killing you?
Was I such a burden?
I don't deserve this.
You always made me cry,
I always held back those nasty words.
But you always let loose,
And didn't care if it killed me a little every time.
Maybe you realized you were dying,
Because of every hit you took to me.
Your mental scarring was enough,
And now you have decided to finally,
With those 6 words.
"I do not love you any more."

Where I thought I could be freed from the past.
Then the cage door closed on me,
Took my future from me.
They said there was nothing to be done,
I had to continue living this wretched life.
So I’m stuck in a cage,
That will never let me go.
Controlled by strangers that won't help me.
I can’t breathe here anymore,
I need to be set free.
I need my life.
I need my freedom.
I can’t be cooped up to do your bidding anymore.
There is no more energy within me.
I want nothing to do with you anymore.
You suffocate me.
I just want to live my life without stress from your existence.
I’m a caged bird in a cell box.
And I’ll never be set free.
Water Waves crashed noisily against the hull of the ship, drowning out all other sounds. The smell of sea salt was strong, washing away the stench of unwashed bodies and people. The girl watched as white foam fell over the sea like a blanket. Then it faded and disappeared like it was never there, only to be replaced by another sheet. Occasional sprays of high flying foam dotted the peaceful scene. The full moon was low, almost touching the surface of the horizon. Thin wisps of fog lingered around the sky, giving it an eerie feel. Despite that, stars could be seen, twinkling like diamonds against a black backdrop. The girl leaned against the ships railing. In the distance, something broke the surface of the water. She watched mesmerized as a dolphin—no two—leapt leapt like gazelles. In moments, they had dived gracefully back in the depths of the ocean.

A Mermaid, an Angel, and a Lonely GirlNo one knows how long she laid at the shoreline with her face looking up towards the heavens and her toes pointed seawards. Maybe longer than a decade, but shorter than a century. She's been there long enough for the seaweed to tangle around her legs and leech onto her skin. The sand sunk in around her, hugging her every curve. Her fiery hair constantly cooled and washed out with bright azure waves. Seagulls flutter in the air above her, beckoning at her to take a dip. The winds blow over her, through her eyelashes, whispering her name.A Mermaid, an Angel, and a Lonely Girl3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Some say she's a mermaid. Washed ashore years before and unable to find her way home. Or rejected from her place beneath the water and waiting an eternity to die an untimely death. Others believe she is an angel. Fell from the heavens with such force that she lay there crippled and unable to move. Still, others believe she is only a girl. Not an immortal or goddess, but just a girl. A girl who could not find love on land yet heard the waves calling for

My dress stained red

Honor our righteous vows
And love me till I rot
We vowed forever
Let my love

When your eyes are purgatory itself.
There is no passion in that fire,
But I want that simple burning hatred.
I need you like a child needs to plunge its hand into fire,
And yet you still glint and catch my eye and I want you.
I want you and need you,
Like I want and need the world to end.
You are my armageddon,
And your name is Jennifer.
