The Tragedy of Mr. Kent ( Tears through Yellow Goggles )
I wanted to be
and then, too.
These simple days
and the others
spent laughing and sharing stories.
I wanted to be
doing the things I love to do
Painting smiles on faces
And lifting sad eyes from the sea
Floating hearts above the moon.
I love doing such things, surrounded and graced
by the doves in my embrace.
But I am not my own.
A boy with a leash around his heart
ever susceptible to kryptonite tears
and a little empathy.
It becomes evident, sooner or later, that to love me
is to know the price you'll pay when I'm
anywhere, everywhere but
My status, set to: [AWAY]
. --- how it breaks my heart. .
All my excuses. Missed appointments. Forgotten anniversaries.
Last minute appearances. Tired interactions.
All the times I've left you sitting alone at 12:01 - wondering wh
Fly.the clouds were swimming across the deep blue skyFly.9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
where the stars and the moon seemed too jealous and shy
of the clouds that danced so beautifully there
that to us, they seemed to not have a care
but after the clouds had conquered their glory...
the moon and the stars made way for their story
of a man and a lady who met right below
the very living beings, that helped their love grow
this story begins with a man and a lady
who understood that love would never come as easy
but as we all know how the saying goes...
"never say never, since we may never know"
so in dedication to the love they created
the stars and the moon will never be faded
as they tell of a story about everlasting love
sit back and listen to the creatures above.
*how it began*
He saw a girl walk along the midnight shore
Thinking about thoughts he had never thought before
Who is this beauty that walks at night?
Without a care in the world, a worry, or fright?
Her hair that flows like the wind and s
The Wing'd LoversThe two were Fated to beThe Wing'd Lovers7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Intertwined for all eternity.
They had old souls-
Born the moment
Fates eyes blinked into being.
But Time and numerous vessels
Tore the lovers apart.
Spiders webs grew on the ladys silks-
For she sought no eyes full of adoration
Other than her lovers.
The mans top hats faded,
Sitting in too many windows,
Each day with a fresh night lily stuck in the band -
A sign to his beloved, to show her
Where he laid his head those decades.
They had no choice but to live separated.
Until they were Found again.
For they were the Earth, the Sky -
They were the stars exhaling
And they were that pure moment of night, just before the sun rises.
They could never die.
How cruel, to live forever but alone.
Their hearts were only big enough
For each other and the pain and loneliness they felt
In each others wake.
The Faerie King and Queen -
He kissed innumerable lilies,
Pretending them to be her lips.
She stood in countless woods
I'll Never Grow UpI'll Never Grow Up9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I dont want to grow up
'cause it'll mess everything up.
When you're a kid,
it was okay, no matter what you did.
You can believe in faeries and all kinds of magickal things;
you can say that you spend your days with dryads and kings.
The parents just laugh and laugh
'cause they stopped believing long before they could begin.
When you're a kid, it's okay to say that you're best friends with Tink and Pan.
and that you always go to Neverneverland.
It's alright to say that you play Hide and Seek with the Lost Boys
and that you never fail to win.
You could say that you sit up in the Castle with Rapunzel
and braided her hair,
you could say that when Sleeping Beauty awoke,
you were there.
It's alright if you're a kid to say that you dance with faeries at night
and that you fly with
Logic In Wonderland"We're all mad Here!"Logic In Wonderland10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Well, if you're mad There
and I'm Here as well
that means I'm mad too!
And if Here is There
and that is Everywhere,
then one would think
that includes you!
we're all mad
And if Everywhere is Anywhere
that makes the whole world
and if Here is There or Anywhere,
that would make the whole world mad too!
It's a mad, mad place
when Everyone is mad.
It's a funny, funny place
in this crazy land
but if the world is mad
and we are too,
Here, There, Anywhere
even to Timbuktu,
and if the whole world is mad
and thinks the same,
then that would mean
no one is mad
everyone is just very,very sane.
