A sonnet for LinkWill you ever say any single word?A sonnet for Link1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When running away to save the princess,
Only some syllables or grunts are heard,
Your silence is the key to your success.
Somehow you can have a conversation,
Everyone always knows what you mean,
No language with each reincarnation,
We just hear that war cry you always scream.
You are a genuine master swordsman,
Even though you've just had a little practice,
You don't remember your past lives, we can,
You're the hero of old, his apprentice.
So whenever you're going on a quest,
Please just remember that silence is best.

I search only to end evils gain
I fight for the light to end the pain
I shall end this endless night
Giving way to dawns first light
And break through these clouds of rain
Should I fall, should I fail
Evil shall break down the gates of hell
Innocents will die in vain
But with strong sword in hand
I ride through the land
I ride past enemies slain
Through dense forest
Where trees grow their fullest
I and my sword train
The mountain of death
I'm kissed with evil's breath
And to rest is evil lain
Now under water do I go
To rid evil from the world below
As I watch the moon wane
For a friend I do morn
As her life was torn
I take the Blade of Evils Bane
As I face the desert heat
My victory is bittersweet
And O learn the sages' shame
So I go to the land of snow
Waiting for the mirrior shard to show
And watched as evil takes a snow dame
I step through time
To make the second shard mine
Midnas' presance keeps me sane
Now into the sky
With the last shard its t

Golden curls and eyes of blue
I sit in wait as evil reigns
I wait to be freed by you
Yes I know Ive met you before
Silver fur playing your part
But as you return with despair in your eyes
I can see she has entranced your heart
I watch you approach before me
She nears death on your back
So I close my eyes and hold her hand
To give her the light she lacks
I give what strength I possess
As the quest has only begun
But I didnt realise that now I shall
Feel her feelings as one
A bond forms between your souls
Emotions that challenge fate
A world demanding you to fight
Immersed in love and hate
I feel my lifelessness hang above
I continue to watch as before
I feel her yearning, you are returning
Approaching nearby with my core
Evil shadows fill my void
Forced to fight with your blade
Strength returned, triumph regained
Evil pierced and power laid
We are all together once more
By the mirror that keeps our worlds tied
You look at her, she

a ghost among the sunken ship
of your treasure trove heart.
Like the last bit of rum in the jug,
I enjoy the way 'fuck' rolls off your tongue,
as if you invented its meaning.
I try to articulate that one syllable,
match your way of speech-
You've never needed to dress your words-
dip them in ink or paint them in poetry
upon the exotic map of my sun-kissed curves.
I have drowned so many times
in the green sea of your eyes
that I am coughing up seaweed
& weak bones.
You tell me not to speak-
that such words sound dirty on my tongue
that my spine is made for beauty
and not for a bounty.
But you, you are a plague
light-years at sea
and I am finding the ocean
& salty siren lips.

To a place not tracked my miles
I know you don't want me to stay
So maybe now you can finally smile
Send me away
Like everyone else has before you
I'll find a new place to lay
For what else is a broken man to do
Send me away
Yet again I will play as the fool
Tear up my heart just to play
Then toss me like a useless tool
Send me away
What more can you want from me
Your leaving my heart to decay
So just let go and leave me be
Send me away
Away so I can go back to being alone
Go back to being cast astray
And go back to a world without a home.

i would never number the poems
i wrote about myself because that
would be like ticking off the days
until my breakdown;
i was a moth, unapologetically throwing myself
at any gleam of hope; wasting my wings
on industrial promises
colors always felt much more
appropriate for the purple boiling
beneath my heart and the pallid
purposelessness of my head,
but i was born into a colorless world--
no one sees me behind the metallic scars
of my skin and iron grating of my voice against
the grain; no one sees me as more than
gray regret or monochrome mistakes,
no one sees me but

filled with skeletons-
fragments of spirits
swept into dustbins;
praises and merits

Where is the virtue
when in the dark
I never glow?
Why would I want to

Victory's a bag

and two instruments

some things you just know, i guess.
like, when i was in first grade, i knew five things for sure.
i knew that humans had five fingers on their hands,
that dragons were real,
that i was going to be a doctor firefighter when i grew up,
that my mother thought i was perfect,
and that if you got hurt on the playground
you had to go tell a teacher as soon as possible.
the thing with getting older
is that everyone always tries to tell you
what “getting older” means.
really, it just means that you’re nine and no longer eight
and you’re not yet ten, but slow down that will come soon.
some things you just don’t know, i guess.
like, in third grade gym class,
our coach told us that if we wanted something
we had to work for it and he also told us
never say never and that practice made perfect.
i stuck my hand up and told him about miracles,
about how it was okay to say no and never
and about how we were all born perfect.

Is everything alright?
Don't you tell me that it's nothing
I see you toss n turn all night
You know I would give you anything
I'd bleed to make you smile
But if you're busy pointing fingers
I'll refuse to stand on trial
I'll walk away from everything
If you tell me that it makes it all better
I was here when life went to hell
And I stayed faithful through all weather
You're Killing me (Killing me)
You're Killing me
You ask me why I still fight
I don't know the answer
I'm trying to believe that We'll change
You tell me that I'm uptight
But you're not any better
No matter what I'm always to blame
So perfectly Ignited
I sit and watch our love burn
Tearing at the sight of the flames
Can't be the only one who fights it
When is it gonna be your turn
To be the one in love and insane...
I'm on the outside looking in
Because You barricaded all entry
I just wanna stand by your side
But it seems like I'm just an enemy
I'm fighting an army of hate

as I am going to lose you:
steadily, and without artifice.
like the clearing of floodwaters.
like the healing of a wound.
there is something within me
that does not permit permanence,
something rancid inside
that slowly wears through—
I cannot keep. I lose. I lose.
but I am determined, this time,
to do it gracefully. to make it
into a skill that I can perfect,
a performance that commands awe,
a sideshow of precious things
slipping through my fingers.
somewhere, behind a curtain,
on a rickety platform
surrounded by strangers,
I am losing you
as I have loved you:
willingly, and without reservations.
with the depth of an ocean.
with the tenderness of a bruise.
