What Color Are Your Wings?What color are your wings,What Color Are Your Wings?5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The ones that we all bear?
Are they pure white, carrying you
High up into the air?
Or are they dark, having fallen
Onto the muddy ground?
Have they become heavy with grime
So you keep falling down?
Are they gold, glowing and warm
Wrapping others in embrace?
Do they want your wings as well
To make this a better place?
Are they multi-colored,
Handsome as a peacock,
But are only there for show,
Moving no more than a rock?
Do they look beautiful and white,
But don't hold onto their plumes?
They might take you high for some time,
But then drop you to your doom.
Often when we take to flight
We take others along.
They follow us when we do right
But also when we do wrong.
Fly high when you take to the skies
And ensure a safe ride.
Flying low might have its thrills,
But you may well collide.
Whether or not people see them,
They're such important things.
Look close then answer truthfully:
What color are your wings?
The quiet onesThe Quiet OnesThe quiet ones2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's the quiet ones you have to watch out for:
the ones who sit in class, doodling in their notebooks.
Alone they're harmless and keep to themselves.
But don't be fooled, their brains are a flurry of activity.
Put two or more of them together, and you'll wonder what the heck happened.
These "quiet ones" start talking, start plotting.
They've planned each other's brutal deaths....multiple times.
They've discussed the zombie apocalypse....and how they'd start it.
The end of the world has four backup plans....to ensure its demise.
And you can almost guarantee your death has been penciled in for next Tuesday.
So be careful, 'cause it's the quiet ones you have to watch out for.

Still some manage to make my day.
My derpy little friends are always here.
Until you disspawn or get killed.
I try to portect all of you,
sometimes I fail, but I try my best.
But you're still my favorate mob,
in the whole Minecraft world!
Fear and FaithBlackest matter pervading my head,Fear and Faith2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
seizing my limbs as I'm facing the dark,
thoughts unwanted, unheard and unsaid,
discarding thy redemptive salvaging spark.
Shreds of light stroking my mind,
creating a glance into heavenly place,
my childish self, so naive and blind,
thou enlighten for me oh to embrace.
It's the infinite dance, the unending fight,
a game to be lost by the vines of time,
one leads to sorrow, the other to light,
thou are the only to toll the ransoming chime.
Let it go (Luna's version)The stars glow bright on the moon tonightLet it go (Luna's version)1 year ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Not a hoof print to be seen
A kingdom of isolation
And it looks like I'm the queen
The shadows loom like this bitter feel inside
Couldn't keep it in, Heaven knows I've tried
Don't let them in, don't let them see
Be the good girl you always had to be
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know
Well, now they know
Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door
I don't care what they're going to say
Let the night go on
The dark never bothered me anyway
It's funny how some distance makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me can't get to me at all
It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me
Let it go, let it go
I am one with the stars and sky
Let it go, let it go
You'll never see me cry
Here I stand and here I stay
Let the night go on
My power spreads through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in shimme
My DreamI dream of a girl, alone in the world,My Dream3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Whose problems can be solved by me.
I become her hero, protector in the night;
She loves me and wants me to stay.
But I always say no, tell her it can't be,
That I am cursed to forever be lonely.
But she holds me close and says she's the same,
And together, two cursed become stronger.
So I stay and protect her as we live in a dream
That could never come to fruition.
Because there is no girl out there waiting for me.
I'm no prince in shining armor.
MissingTake me in; lock me out.Missing2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Give me your hate; take my love.
Hide your happiness; show your sadness.
Speak nothing but lies; think nothing but truth.
Whisper your love so sweetly in my ear; yell your hate for all to hear.
Twists and turns; life is made up of quite a few.
Can't you see there's nothing I can do?
Kiss me; twist me. Quickly!
Aren't you going to miss me?
Imperfections Are BeautyOk so you heard it on the newsImperfections Are Beauty2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You see it every day
Society expects us all to be perfect
In every single way
They say you have to be skinny
Or have the perfect skin
You have to meet their standards
In order to fit in
Well i say fuck society
They dont know what its like
To live your life in fear
Wondering if you will be liked
So what if you are different
God made you that way
The world would be so boring
If we were all the same
So go ahead and shut it out
Let it be known
That you are beautiful
And that you can succeed
All you need is yourself
And those who stick around
Imperfections are beauty
That's what makes you YOU
Dont let change yourself
Just because someone wants you to
We are all unique
In every single way
So go ahead and smile
Let them know they cant stay
Imperfections are beauty
Thats all I gots to say
Be yourself becasue there is only one of YOU!!!

Equality for allYou may think you know the difference between right and wrong,Equality for all2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
But let me share some of my views with you in a song.
It doesn't matter if you're L, G, B, T, Q or straight,
What about equality, to love not hate?
So tell me your views, why you think it's so bad.
You can still be loved if you have two moms or two dads.
Don't preach us with the Bible, your words were heard.
But if you say God hates us, that's nonsense, absurd!
Genesis 2:24 & Ruth 1:14
Ruth loved Naomi as Adam did Eve.
Don't judge, but love as people are seen,
We're queer, we're here and ain't gonna leave.
Just deal with us liking the same sex,
If you're straight, it's fine, we give you respect..
But if you're a homophobic jerk,
We'll toy with you by giving you a wink and a smirk.
Boy With Hollow BonesOnce upon a time,Boy With Hollow Bones4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
not too long ago,
there lived a hollow boy with hollow bones.
Hollow smiles hollow eyes,
hollow fingers and toes,
but most of all, he had a hollow soul.
You may not know him,
he wasn't quite known.
I pity the boy with the hollow bones.
He had no one left, or so he did think,
while he laid on his bed, his phone started to ring.
He couldn't get up because before she could call,
the hollow boy took a knife, and ended it all.
What the boy didn't know was that someone was there,
to tell him she loved him, to tell him she cared.
She called barely too late, and wouldn't you know
She became the girl with hollow bones
I'm InsaneWhen I say I'm insane,I'm Insane3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With that sadistic grin on my face,
Don't be worried my friend,
It means I still hold control on my mind.
My thoughts are just morbid,
And beautifully disfigured.
And I like to share them,
With a civilized world,
Through a pair of civilized eyes.
It's an art,
It's a life of its own.
It's a dark substance,
That needs attentative watch.
For when I stop saying I'm insane,
When I say I'm doing just fine.
When you try to back away,
And I plead for you to stay.
When I don't know what you're saying,
And I don't know what I'm doing.
Once I stop saying I'm insane,
That's when you know:
I've gone over the deep end,
And I'm not coming back.
The Child ThiefI had a little dreamThe Child Thief5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where all people did was cry and scream
Scream so loud they broke the sky
And then they watched the stars all fall and die
All the children curled up and cried
The night the stars all fell and died
No longer could a wish be made
No matter how much they kneeled and prayed
Then a young boy with eyes so gold
Did an action so clever and bold
He sang a song so sweet and forlorn
That the sky weeped and the stars were reborn
With arms wide open he welcomed them in
But none could compete with his silly grin
He awoke the children with the crow of a cock
And they all stared at him with eyes of shock
One spoke "This boy has brought the stars back"
The boy smiled, for he had made the sky no longer black
With a spark in his eye he spoke to them all
"I know of a place..." he had them all enthralled
Through the Mist he led them to Avalon
Told them tales, and sang his Peterbird song
Following the trail, he led them through
But when they reached the end, the children couldn't belie
AutisticYes I said it, I'm autisticAutistic2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm not more then you and not less
I think the same as you, sometimes a bit simplistic
I even slightly like, that I must confess
Sometimes people say I'm retarded
I let them do it, I don't care
I might be the person who is disregarded
When I get insulted I only stare
I know the truth
I'm no different from anybody else
Though I might have had a different youth
I will never change
That's something I know for sure
I think that it would be quite strange
I will stick to who I am
We can change what we stand for, but not who we are

"Do you see do you see them?
They are there on the edge, just outside of view.
Damn it! Why can't you see them!
They're staring straight at you!
Just turn a little bit so you can see better
No, just a little more, almost there
Ha! See, in the distance I told you!
Now you see them stare?!
No? What do you mean!
Just squint a little more
Now do you see them!
Caw caw caw
I can hear them now too!
Why are you looking at me like that?
you've got no clue.
Look! Stand where I'm standing
Now look straight ahead
Now look and LISTEN!"
Why do you converse with our dead?
I shake my fist and yell
"You conniving black birds!
Why cant she see you,
And hear you talking in words!?"
Their haughty laughs escape their beaks
But you just frown at me.
"Stop playing stupid! UGH!
Look Damn it! See!"
You shake your head in sorrow
Patting my shoulder in goodbye
I reach my hand up
Again I point and try
"Please just look! Really

Im sorryIm sorry for the lies Ive told youIm sorry7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Im sorry for the pain Ive cause you
Im sorry for making you mad
Im sorry for starting the fights
Im sorry for forgiving you
Then fighting again
Im sorry for saying sorry and not meaning it
But this time
I am sorry
I truly am
But the question is
Do you forgive me?
And do I forgive myself?
And last of all
Should I still love you?
If its cause this much trouble for both of us
Is it worth it?
But I must think
Of the consequences
If I didnt love you anymore
I would be miserable
I would miss you
I would be lost
I would be gone
I wouldnt be on earth
But I would also still love you
So I guess Ill have to live with it
Even if it dose mean you need to put up with my shit
My love letters, songs
And my love
But just a question
Do you love me enough,
To put up with that?
Because I love you enough
To put up with your things
That annoy the shit outta me
