Haven't heard from you in months
Our love used to give us goosebumps
Now it's like this, being together was my only wish
Now we just reminisce, on what we could've had
This makes me so sad, because the goods become the bad
Go away and never stay in my way
This silly game you used to play
Controlling the strings of my feelings
Bloody puppeteer of your smiles...
I won't look back and just go away
Each day has it's own way of showing us a better day
Which is the best way to live without you today?
I can't get you out of my head no matter what
So all I do is jot, these rhymes that I have in my head
Sometimes I wish I was dead, but instead I just go ta bed
And I cry, cry, under the moonlight's cruelty
And they bleed, bleed, mutilated limbs
And they laugh, laugh, my elderly demons
I wish I could have suffered differently...
Now I'm just another wreck in the sea of griefs
All I wanna do is laugh with you
But anytime we talk it turns into a

Snared there for eternity
Without an ounce of light inside me.
Farewell, all my former friends.
It wrecked and tore me inside,
I can't even walk anymore
I can't live no more
My fate is awfully decided.
My heart is pounding.
My hands are shaking.
Still, why is it so hard?
To end my life.
L'amour se perd(English version below)L'amour se perd2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Cachée au plus profond de ses yeux,
Une tristesse d'azur, intarissable.
Un amour d'une violence inouïe
À se brûler la peau tout comme l'âme.
Une flamme vive qui s'évapora
Telle le chant lointain des rossignols.
La mystérieuse complexité des sentiments humains,
Et leur paradoxale lâcheté.
Sombre clarté d'un croissant de lune d'albâtre
À travers l'étroite fenêtre de son coeur.
Lorsque la lumière s'est finalement éteinte
Elle continua de l'aimer jusque dans ses rêves.
Love is lost
Hidden in the depths of her eyes,
An azure sadness, inexhaustible.
A love of an unprecedented violence
Burning your skin as your soul.
A bright flame that evaporated
Such as the nightingales' distant song.
The mysterious complexity of human feelings,
And their paradoxical cowardice.
Dark light of an alabaster crescent moon

I'll die with this smell on my lips
The smell of your silk hair
The smell of our laughs
Even from beyond, blinded by black sun
Through dazzling darkness
I'll see your shining smile.
Once my heart will hush
Into the deafening silence of death
Your cheerful voice like an echo.
My memories will sink into an endless void
Walking amid the lands of damned
Only your hand to guide my heavy steps.
Though sealed forever in my ebony coffin
The pain - stabbing the body I once had,
Tearing my soul apart, finishing my late brain off...
I'll howl silently, afraid that one day
You'll ever forget me.
His Body Is DeadIt started out as an accident, and I guessHis Body Is Dead1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
It ended with one too.
Because we didn't mean to fall,
But we did anyway.
And I guess I can't regret it too much.
But after the second accident,
He just wasn't the same.
He breathed, but didn't know it.
His heart beat, but didn't feel it.
And his head worked, he just couldn't use it.
I swore in my dreams,
I'd see him reaching out to his body.
But his fingers passed right through it.
And he wanted to tell me something,
But his voice wouldn't work.
He's less than a child's doll,
That used to be a favorite,
And now sits in a corner gathering dust.
Because a child's doll could at least find new life.
And he just lays there,
Staring at the ceiling,
And there's this mechanical breathing going on in his chest.
And the machine won't stop screaming.
And screaming "LET HIM GO! HE'S NO LONGER HERE, AND HE'LL NEVER BE BACK!"
His eyes won't see me anymore.

And princesses in ball gowns
Kings and queens sitting on thrones
“I want to be like them” I thought.
They twirled through grand halls
Over raging rivers
Climbed Mount Everest
I was like them I dreamt.
They are pretty
Have voices like gold
Can do anything
“I will be like them” I said.
She is beautiful
Inside and out
Can achieve anything
Can dream and believe
She is older now
She is me
I don’t want to be like them anymore
I want to be like me
And only me.

Slivers of light(French version below)Slivers of light1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The most dreadful winter of my life came.
I abandoned the idea of a blossoming future,
Fled the misery of my own motherland,
For a woman I have far too often dreamt of.
Among the singing buds of the Shinto shrine
A white plum caresses my back,
Its petals lull me, my eyes are sealed, sweet reverie,
A convent of grass
The junk of my thoughts
Send me to Amaterasu.
Blushing Lotus, enticing Lilacs, panting Azaleas,
So many mistresses!
Enough perfumes to be drunk from them.
Why, my promise, have I been waiting so long to join you?
Your hair like Sakura flowers
Your laughters sound like Shamisen.

Because it couldn't have waited.
Just a little longer,
and I would've been skipping over
the stepping stones of freedom.
But your sanity was being tested,
and this was the way to study.
You decided to drag me into the fire,
hoping I had the extinguisher.
Now I'm being called by the east and the west,
and everything is heading south.
All I want to do is run,
but you've crippled me.
So pull on my paper heart,
and see how long it takes it to rip.
Wander to nowhereA ghostly walk on the autumnal pavementWander to nowhere1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Even my own shadow is gleaming more
Than the empty shell of my body.
As I keep wandering, on this endless pit
Picky starving crows are looking down on me
The leftovers of my thoughts order me to die out.
This path of glory I've kept away from, it might be gone.
My dignity and pride, where have you fled?
I'm searching for the graveyard of redemption
Where my promises are all buried
Shot down by my deceit's gun.
Will you ever forgive me?
As I'm standing there, the icy silence blows ;
As time goes by, the ruthless mutism of yours
Reckons that time for forgiveness hasn't come yet.

the first days of September,
when the breeze was
still cool and tender
Red leaves twirled around your dress,
as we danced in ultimate bliss.
and amidst the wind i stole a kiss
something I never thought I'd miss
But as the Autumn faded away,
our love gradually swayed,
much to our painful dismay,
we could no longer stay
At the city lights I look and sigh,
mourning the memory of what's gone by
and not a single day passes by
without regretting the word goodbye.

Your EraserThere used to be a shoulder to cry onYour Eraser1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Open arms, when I needed a hug
A person to console me, when no one else could
Someone who could always understand me
A friend I thought would never leave me.
You held my hand as I started anew
And walked me through every step
We got hurt together and healed together;
Our injuries were always mutual,
Because we saw each other as we saw ourselves.
Through storms and sunny days, we traveled,
Pushed through the years, despite the odds.
It seemed as though we were inseparable; our friendship would never end
Our parents and friends would say
"Joined at the hip and practically twins!"
But illusions, cannot last and all glass eventually shatters; including the mirror that deceived us
No matter how much care was there, we have begun to fade
We are near shadows, of each others' pasts
You, are starting to make me disappear,
Trying to erase me with all your might, while trying to redraw me into something I'm not.

The Waiting-RoomTime heals all wounds...The Waiting-Room1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
What a load of crap.
Because from what I've seen
When someone dies
We sit there with fumbling fingers
Trying to stitch the gaping hole in our heart.
And when we finish we look down and lie "I'm okay."
Because not even the most skilled doctor
Could erase your pain.
Even in sleep you can't escape their faces,
Maybe a good knock out
In the fighting rink
I've heard you don't dream
when knocked out.
And maybe the only reason we die
Is because we miss the ones that left before us.
Even the loneliest man has someone he misses,
Maybe that's the only reason he's lonely.
Also, I've been thinking lately
about what comes after this?
Is this life just a waiting-room for the next?
Or are we deemed to an infinite line of waiting-rooms.
Maybe there's just oblivion.
An oblivion where we're all thrown into,
Regardless of our deeds.
A place were you endlessly search for those that left before you.
But as soon as your fingers touch,
Or your voices

Standard-bearer of a worthless war
Bombs repainted his home one more time
Of a blood-red indelible colour
The howling siren, gruesome symbol -
Sowed seeds of fear in people's heart
Sowed graves on dried gardens
Turned wives into willows
Coloured dreams into eternal darkness
The siren resonated again -
Clouds became soot black, crows flew
The innocent child got slayed, his toy in hand
This fallen world will never be lifted up

And are ignored, even in light
But are too scared to fight
There is nowhere to go
There is no one to see
They are lost
They are quiet as death
But yearn to be loud as life
It's their constant eternal strife
They are forever searching
For that special light
That returns their sight
They are invisible
But are always "seen"
Even in their dreams
This constant fear resides
That no one will by their side
Either to love
Or simply just because
...They were lonely at night
And were ignored, even in light
But were too scared to fight...
Le parfum de la Lune(English version below)Le parfum de la Lune1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Des étoiles filantes naissent, vivent,
À travers ce ciel chargé de plomb,
Sombre abîme des cieux, bas et lourd.
À la manière d'un paysage champêtre
Les bombardiers volent, gazouillent
Et les bombes tombent du funeste prunier.
Dans la toile de ces mygales casquées,
Des lucioles retenues par leurs pattes vindicatives.
La nuit leur est plus douloureuse que l'immolation,
Plus longue que le solstice d'hiver.
Les fleurs se fanent à jamais ; sur le corps se gravent
Des balafres à vous en faire frémir le pire des tortionnaires ;
La rosée sera tâchée de perles de sang.
Ces astres éphémères sont nés, ont vécu,
Puis se taisent à jamais.
Ces fillettes déjà oubliées,
Elles n'ont plus que le parfum de la Lune
Pour s'imaginer à quoi aurait pu ressembler la vie.

About that dream of yours, the one you cherished so much.
Quiet morning, sitting over rubble,
Even grizzled fallen leaves carefully listened.
This burning passion it triggered inside you
This childish and innocent gaze in your prospect eyes
Every sinner would have seen redemption in your words.
And yet this very dream you treasured,
Led you to your last smile.
Knelt, I swore I'll handle this torch of your will
On your grave, tears felt, promise rised.
No matter how mighty mountains will be
This world isn't strong enough to stop our friendship's bond.
But though, what am I doing here like that?
I jumped from the steeple...
Drained of any happiness...
Flattened on the soiled ground...
What a long drop it was.
From my steaming agony,
Our dream evaporates into this hopeless air.
