Cold HeartedI'm tearing them down,Cold Hearted2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Piece by piece.
Let the walls fall,
Let the pain increase.
I stare my pain in the face,
Let it rip me a part.
Show what I've always feared,
In the depths of my cold heart.
I review my lack of care,
All the people that I've hurt.
When did I become so cold?
When did loved ones turn to dirt?
What happened to me?
Once so loving and kind.
When did it get so bad?
Did I suddenly lose my mind?
I want to trust again,
To love and to care,
But is the risk to high?
Is the cost of pain fair?
I realize that it's not.
I'm safe within my walls.
So much better to be cold,
Then to get hurt in the fall.

ContinuumI probably miss you like I miss painting caves,Continuum1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
like an ache somewhere deeper than inside my bones
too ingrained in myself to recall.
I probably kissed you when our bodies knew strength
like the spears in our hands
and then when the snow melted and the world dawned green, green, green.
I probably laughed with you when we saw pyramids pierce the desert skies
and again when we saw masts on the horizon.
I probably held your hand when Rome came down in flames.
I probably stood on pyres with you and sang a prayer for you
and knew your soul like the words in a bottle,
like a bird in the sky,
and I surely held my breath and knew that our flight would never end.
I will wander with you through cities someday soon
and I will dance with you through every uprising.
I will kiss you hard when the atmosphere disintegrates
and land beside you on Europa,
where we will build the history of a new world
and I will love you through all of it, always.
Sails of the DragonA shining vessel in waters darkSails of the Dragon1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
White sails proud amidst the storm
From fierce clouds, the lightning stark
mocked the glow of fire warm
Proud she stood to fight the wind
Her dragon tall in growing light
While thunder roared in ceaseless din
Hating the fair craft so bright
On she sailed in crushing waves
Towards the first of sunrise's rays
Enraged, the roiling storm gave chase
But slowly faded in the warmth of day
Thus she emerged in shining form
To sail in light for evermore
Never again would there be a storm
That dared to challenge the Dragon's roar.

Poets and ParadoxesTo be a poet is an endless paradox,Poets and Paradoxes1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
A constant contradiction of your thoughts
And division of your soul.
Paper cuts will scar your skin,
And fill your ink well up with blood
So you have no choice but to write from your heart.
It means you cry and lie
And lay awake each night
Thinking of new ways and new words
To hurt you and heal you all at once.
It makes it so that the beat of the stanzas
Is a heartbeat,
Hammering in time with your own
And speaking to you about every moment
That you have been compelled to pen.
It means breaking yourself apart
Into ink and sharp shards
Small enough not to cut anyone
And maybe those foolish and wonderful enough
To try piecing you together.
I Have Loved the Stars Too FondlyThese vast expanses broader than the skiesI Have Loved the Stars Too Fondly2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And deeper than the ocean, just as blue
Are unobtainable from where the view
Is struck by light and hidden from my eyes.
Oh marvels of the farthest-reaching space,
Oh nebulae, oh planets, ancient stars,
Already naked eyes have fought such wars
To glimpse beyond the darkness to your face.
And light which grows with centuries has bled
Still higher in the night and drowned you out.
My city home has left my eyes in doubt
That worlds of breathless beauty I have read
Exist, nor are they found where'er I look:
All space confined in pages of a book.

from heavy storm clouds,
flags puffed up
and scooped out
like handfuls of sand
while the car windows
steamed in the cold.
You told me stories
of a boy in green
and his war with
the hooked man,
said they took
those like us
to the first star on the right
and straight on to morning.
You made me believe
and when life got hard--
mom hopped up on pills,
nights filled with demons--
I breathed wishes
to be stolen away.
No pirate ever darkened my stoop
with his wayward compass
or water-stained maps;
no fairy ever left glitter
smeared on my skin
like good dreams.
I look to the sky
when the wind blows
and hold my breath
with his name on my tongue
all the same.

You got style you say? Your own style? Take a magazine and look, there is your “style”.
You are a copycat. ‘No I’m not’, you answer. Then a tacocat? ‘What are you talking about?’
you ask. You do realize that tacocat is also tacocat when reading it from behind? So tacocat
is copying itself, which mean that tacocat is also a copycat.
‘You’re weird’, you say. Yes I am, cause I’m not a copycat. I’m a fresh fish, fresh fish swim

Miserable Hearts.Misery is your name on my lips,Miserable Hearts.1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Hollow hearts beat in vain,
For what is love to people like us?
Only something to bring more pain.
Eulogies pose as our song,
Agony mirrors romance
Everything in our souls is synthetic,
False feelings and broken ways
Love doesn't even stand a chance.
But still we can have more,
Let us be the tragic drama.
I want to be the fear in your eyes,
My name to be the hatred on your lips,
Lets fuel this love with blasphemous lies.
Our venom will turn to verse,
That spits and scorns this romance,
What is love anyway?
The misery left with each kiss?
Or the way together our demons dance?
You are the shadows cast on my mind,
Your voice falls like shattered glass,
Tell me again what love is,
Is it something we'll ever find?
I've seen the color drain from your face,
You've felt my frozen hands.
Together we've laid to watch the stars,
Is love the healing of our scars?
I want to feel your blood run cold,
While you watch life leave my eyes.

BlindImagine your life, like a light,Blind1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Having a parent with no sight,
And at a young age, you'll know your own way home.
To guide and to see,
Your life would soon be,
And your life getting less and less bright.
Friends making jokes,
About the non-seeing folks,
And you sit in your seat, in tears.
Trying to lend you a hand,
They just don't understand,
That the pain comes from words they spoke.
Though instead, think of whose life must suffer,
Images growing much rougher,
And they can't see their child's own face.
With bumped and bruised knees,
From such, normally, avoidable injuries,
Their skin and bones simply tougher.
The colors of anything, even the color of your eye,
Or maybe those boring old birds in the sky,
Your parent can't experience at all.
While you partially hope the trait isn't genetic,
Your heart is feeling quite sympathetic,
For the one you love, who suffers, never having hurt a fly.
And then....that's when you ask, why?

But I don't,

Like the layering of fresh snow on a grass plain in winter
The binding of each book is smooth and soft
If ye were to run ye hand upon the covering
Than ye would understand the magic that it holds
Fresh autumn leaves resting in crisp piles
Describes the feeling of the pages that take me miles
Into the pages I dive and
Rest in the words of the stories I love
Scents richer than spring rain
Mirror stories of love, happiness and pain
Bathe in the knowledge of others, I do
And pretend that what I read is in fact true
A summer breeze wafts through the Tree of Knowledge
Below it ye shall find me feasting on its fruit
Never again shall I go hungry since
I have been introduced to the magic of books.

I don't think I'm breathing,
I realized we never said goodbye.
I close my eyes,
And I walk away,
And hold my head up and try not to cry,
I tell myself "everything's going to be okay."
I need to move on,
I need to understand that there is nothing more,
To him I am gone,
That's it, nothing more.

Falling deep into a slumber,
Here I stay,
There I lay.
When will it be my time?
Why do you, seem to be,
Like that one, who I held lovingly?
Two hearts, connected as one,
That guides everyone.
I know you can be strong.
Why do you feel wrong?
Why is your pain unheard?
I will be here, waiting forever.
Until you come, my love….
I will be waiting…
Here where I thought we can be free….
Those sky eyes, happily.
Never seem to lose their glow.
Yet I know,
I will have to go away.
I cannot leave you behind.
While darkness clouds your eyes.
Why is this true?
Because of you two,
I could smile,
In this world for awhile.
I could love again.
Don’t cry my friends.
I’ll always be here…

Seek out my own
None have made me love before
None I ever known
We speak extremely seldom
Not enough as we should
I hope you'd say you love me
I hope you know I would
We've never been so happy
Our friends will say the same
You've turned me to a petty thief
Your heart is mine to claim
I'd stay up all night just to see you
To feel your sweet embrace
We'll sneak out and face the daylight
Face the things time might erase

I was lost,
until I met you,
you were a perfect weapon
You and I were unbroken,
we even decided to
set the world on fire.....
Until the day betrayed
I was so upset that
I even lost my wings,
In the end I realised
that you were using me,
and for that I will never
let you seal my coffin.
I hope you remember
my last goodbye,
because that is the last
good memory you will
I hope you burn in your home,
in the fires of Hell.
Introduced To DeathI was introduced to death,Introduced To Death2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When I was 10 years old.
His friend's name was murder,
The sharp blade oh so cold.
Daddy lost his temper,
After he had a drink.
He came at us quickly,
We didn't have time to think.
He would hit Mommy and I,
Make us hurt and bleed.
The smelly drink caused it,
Something no family needs.
Mommy tried to save me,
But Daddy got her first.
I sat in a corner crying,
This one was the worst.
Now, Daddy's in prison.
Living there to stay.
I'm in heaven with Jesus and Mommy,
It's better here anyway.
