No Matter LoveI.No Matter Love10 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm the comet that appeared for the first time
that will never return
through the judgment of your life,
only to have you receive what I bring
as the love you long to take and return
before the ice dust from my departure
fades for all time.
Through the slender-necked sitar's silvery notes
pass the fragrance of our moonstruck limbs
surrendering to breezes
that play off a river that honors
the generations of lovers we now embody.
You were the fallen angel that waited so long,
knowing I'd be found,
to resuscitate and raise you up;
Not from whence you toppled,
but to couple in a holy damnation
and welcome in celebration
and never regret, no matter.

A tree will never grow with a splintered trunk.
A river will never flow with frozen water.
I'm a sound that the world would never have heard,
if not for you.
Curse of The LiarsDiscreet silver spidersCurse of The Liars2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
slip from the tongues
of filthy liars
to weave webs
thick and replete
with hazy veils of deceit
that grow more dense and complex
as they spread and mature,
Inducing confusion and delusion
while damaging lives,
But fear not oh ye swindled,
Because those webs either
collapse or implode
retract or explode
as the discreet silver spiders
come back to bite the flesh
and gouge the eyes
of their original creator,
For Heaven and angels utterly despise
filthy mouths that spawn silver spiders,
This is the curse of the liars…

Work it, knead it until it's ready,
then cut it slightly.
While the meat bleeds you smile;
when the stench grows, you smell.
Smell and smile while you tear me.
So this is what you want?
Pick up this illusion as a knife
an cut me slightly...
What are you waiting for?!
If this is what you want, then break my heart!
I will never laugh.
I will never laugh again.
I will never laugh again, that's all.
Time Changed YouTime has passed, the wheel has turnedTime Changed You2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And you, dear one, have turned cold
Because you are as you are now
Already broken, our vow
We promised to stay the same
To stay together, even through the pain
But you, dear one, do not see
The pain that you’ve caused me
I knew time would change us
Everything changes, that much is true
It never occurred to me, the biggest danger
That you would look at me like an unwanted stranger
You turned away from my touch
And avoided me when you could
When you looked at me, it was with disgust
Almost like I was lower than dust
If I had known then what I do now
I would’ve found a way to change it, somehow
But time has passed and the chance is gone
So it is now, that I must move on
So it is with an aching heart
That I accept it is here where we part
With a trembling hand and a few tears
I wish you good luck and many happy years

Growing larger and darker
Darker than it began
Began white, or did it?
It was black from the beginning
Beginning so small
Small it seemed
Seemed not to matter at all
All it was
Was a little lie
Lie back and watch
Watch that little twist
Twist of the truth flow
Flow and infect
Lives of those around you
You who defiled
Defiled their lives with deception
Deception eventually leads
Leads everyone back to you
You try to cover
Cover your mistakes
Mistakes lead to more mistakes and create
Create a trail
Trail leading to the liar
SuicideThey laugh.Suicide2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When they laugh at me,
I feel degraded.
When they point,
I feel like something is wrong.
When they talk to me,
It feels like a thousand blades stabbing me.
Making me bleed.
Showing them my weakness.
I wonder if they realise how much it hurts.
To be laughed at because I tripped.
To be pointed at just to make it all the more obvious.
To be spoken to like I was a complete idiot.
Why do they do this?
To make themselves feel better?
To prove a point of some kind?
To see me and so many others in pain?
I can't take it anymore.
I don't want to live this kind of life.
Make it go away.
It hurts too much to even breathe.
I've made up my mind.
I'm going to do it when I get home.
The sensation of a blade on my skin.
I've felt it before.
It's like a drug.
School's not over yet.
Only 4 more hours left.
But I've made up my mind.
I'm going to die today.
And no one will stop me.
It's the same as usual.
They say cruel thin

Messsage in a bottleSometimes people cry out for help,Messsage in a bottle2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
I think we all have witnessed it,
We watch them break,
We watch their tears,
And we see something in their eyes,
The last piece of hope,
The hope that as well could be a message in a bottle.
Who will ever know if someone noticed that tiny little bottle in the ocean,
Or if they did,
Did they pick it up?
I have seen a lot of bottles in my time,
And most of the time I pick them up,
But I notice quite a few times I don´t,
It is like they become invisible,
Even if they scream loudly right in front of you,
I think something is wrong,
Why do we leave the bottle in the ocean?
I clearly can see they need help,
And I see it,
I really do,
How can you pretend not to?
Final MomentThrough a window,Final Moment2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The light shines.
Outside the window,
Stands tall pines.
I lay in bed,
With a blurry vision.
Hearing the sounds,
Of a damn pigeon.
Overlapping the sound,
Is small consecutive beeps.
I hear a door close,
There stands two creeps.
Tall and firm,
Quiet and grim.
They stand adjacent to the bed,
Starring at my broken limb.
Bring in a female.
She comes closer,
Looking very pale.
Her eyes widen,
And out comes the tears.
Floating around her,
I see her biggest fears.
Glancing at her lap,
Starring at her phone.
Not moving an inch,
Not making a sound.
I won't be around.
She stands beside me,
I give a smirk.
She cries more,
I feel like a jerk.
My eyes close,
I don't make a noise.
No more sounds,
No more joys.
I can't hear anything,
I wish I could cry.
I can't even try,
I know I'm going to die.

“Demented,” people scoffed
“Insane,” they scorned.
He couldn't help it,
The way he was.
There lived a boy once

“Beautiful,” he smiled
“Forever,” he whispered.
He couldn't keep it,
The promise he made.
There lived a boy once

“I can change,” he cried
“I need you,” he called.
He hated how he was,
Because it ruined everything.
There lived a boy once

“I’m sorry,” he said
“Forgive me,” he begged.
He broke both hearts,
Because he could only love one.
Birds Inside my Bedroom WallsThere are strange noises late that nightBirds Inside my Bedroom Walls2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
that rouse me from my peaceful slumber.
There are birds inside my bedroom walls.
They sing and they call.
I think it's coming from outside
while I lay in my bed and listen,
but then I hear it clear as day,
unclear as darkest night,
as they talk to me,
from within my bedroom walls.
"There are birds in my walls, mother
we must get them out.
They're singing, they're crying,
they're asking me to free them.
We must save them.
And she says,
"There are no birds in the walls, honey.
The birds don't share their songs at night
and they do not live
inside the walls of our home."
I listen and I try to sleep
but I still hear them,
and they sound desperate.
And who can blame them,
when they're imprisoned within
such a dark and tight enclosure?
"There are birds in my bedroom walls, mother.
They'll hurt themselves, they'll suffocate."
And she shakes her head

There comes a time in our lives, usually when we are young, when we just want to shout our thoughts at the wrold, at everyone, even if we know nobody will hear. We see a commercial, we hear a line in a movie, we read a chapter in a book, which captures us violently, shakes us and we recover from the shake so stunned and amazed that we want to say everything that is on our mind in that same way. Then we pour a glass of water, juice, beer, something, sit by the open window staring at the passing cars or falling leaves, and start composing all the words in one finished thought.
This is pretty much what happened to me two minutes ago.
And it all started with the condition:
What if I told you...
What if I told you that some people don't think what they claim to think when they oppose you in an argument, no, they just want to stomp you with their leather boots
Love Hurts“Love hurts”.Love Hurts2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I never knew the meaning of those words.
How could something so beautiful be so curt?
Why do they say it flies away like a bird?
“Stop this nonsense”.
They never did quite understand or see.
Our love has no consequence
As I was meant for you and you for me.
“Don’t choose with your ego”.
I’m not doing this all for me or for you.
I just love his smile that always does glow,
And between us, things are never blue.
“He will break you”.
Please do not just assume that
What happened to you will happen to me too.
I would know if he was a threat.
“There is no such thing as fate”.
You say it with such conviction,
Are you so quick to hate?
You have never seen the darkness brighten
Things I Would Tell HerI want to tell her the thingsThings I Would Tell Her1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'll tell her when she’s older,
but the information terrifies her.
In order of importance:
she has luna moths in her head,
monarch butterflies in her stomach,
and a feral fetus in her womb.
are collapse-clasped and folded
in her lap;
she holds her elbows like wings
away from her ribs,
ready to flap,
I want to tell her
to keep one hand in her purse
so she can always find her keys,
to keep an eye on the door
and the door always open
so she can run if she doesn't feel safe,
but her cheeks are rorschach-splotch red
and the tension in her shoulders
warns me she's not ready
to hear this.
And there is the possibility that
maybe I’m not ready to tell
I’m just as devastated as her;
that she is surrounded by friends and family
who are violated by a community
where no man can say yes all men.
Coming OutWith promises to be good,Coming Out3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
you prayed every day
and waited for the sign,
even when a songbird touched
down on the roofs of Kansas
and went hollow on your shoulder.
The shedding of teardrops,
the coming out of a heartland
from its religion.
Breathing the smoke of its ash,
and being washed clean of what
you thought you knew.
The locusts never come,
the harvest will yet fail,
but don't deny the butterfly
that carries you over pastures
of dairy cows too busy
to look up at you and judge.
The Far and WideThe Far and Wide2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The clock sits drowning with
its hands behind its back.
There at the feet of a broken man,
fetal below the essence of life.
A mind lost, staring through gaping
eyes of a catatonic gaze,
awaiting the recoil of recovery as
the soul reaches high and blind.
Past cracked windows of a broken
stare out from where the conflicted
mind tears itself apart,
piece by piece and thought by thought.
Many, a great deal have been
the words I've written as to express
this Hell I've yet to conquer,
as such a Hell is far and wide.
Time only shall tell the tale of roads ahead,
where further hills grow and dwell...
but the hills are nothing new
to the man beneath the essence of life.

March days return with their covert light --
in the wave-strike over unquiet stones,
there, where the waves shatter,
you are the daughter of the sea;
but I like you calm, as if you were absent,
so that you will hear me.
I hunt for a sign of you:
I crave your mouth, your voice, your hair --
perhaps not to be is to be without your being.
Tie your heart at night to mine, love,
rest with your dream inside my dream;
and because love battles,
maybe you'll remember that
the tree is here, still, in pure stone.
Tonight I can write the saddest lines:
"I remember you as you were,
in my sky at twilight" --
here, I love you.
Evolution vs ReligionEvolution vs Religion2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Has it ever occurred to anyone that homosexuality is simply Nature's way of birth control? Think about it.
Homosexuality exists in animals. It's been reported in labs that when their rats were over-populated, some of them showed no interest in the opposite gender.
It's not complicated. It just goes to show you that humanity is overpopulating the earth. Heck, there's orphanages and foster care for children who have no parents. So what if two men can't make a baby, same with two women? Fate and Nature compensate for the growth and gradual change in humanity.
Yet it doesn't change the human nature to want to find love. It's evolution people. Adapting to survive. This, of course, explains Chubby Chasers as well. There are so many fat people, humanity has started to adapt to be attracted to what's available.
And for those of you who are VERY religious, don't come at me with this, 'Adam and Eve' stuff. "Evolution is just a theory! We came from Adam and Eve!" No, we didn't. We cam

My trembling hands-
Don't want to come together
I refuse to feel weakness-
Oppress the confessor
I will defy the defeat-
Of my body and mind
And my tears will freeze-
So I...will never cry
I was always told
That I have to be strong
But a child can never grow
When reminded that every decision is wrong
I didn't need to know
That strength was everything
Otherwise I would have given up a long time ago
Because that is my childish instinct
Take back every single breath / Take back those moments I lived
Take back those nightmares I dreamt / Take back those days I wept
I can only take so much / I can choose to give up
I'm not the one who's being the judge / I'm not the one who's being the fraud
I once believed
That resolve was protection
But all forms of relief abandoned me
I crumble upon the footholds of absolution
