EscapeEscape, or so I pray, escape.Escape2 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sever me this nightmare
That grows seedless
Inside me as a tree of despair.
Let me escape to dance
Beyond the limits of my eyes.
To soar over tussock, waving liberty
Under those ancient mountains
Where patience slumbers eternally.
Oh how I wish to fly like the eagle,
Majestic on those wisp of clouds
Ignorant to every taint
Except only to breathe in the verdant
Periphery which soothes
Like the last days of petrichor rain.
To lie below canopy, sleeping peace
Across those primal forests
Where wisdom sings with release.
Oh how I wish to be like the stag,
Wild as those rushing currents
Blind from any saint
Never lonely in worth for the night
Tragedy where ethers
Swirl the final notes of tranquil rest.
Escape, or so I pray, escape.
Grant me a selfish wish
Which gnaws me up within
This diminishing sadness
Who preys upon my flesh of sin.
Let me escape for a chance
To witness a new sunrise.
ProximityDon't get close to meProximity2 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I am corruption
A sickness of danger
Not calm like amethyst sea
Lullabied to sleep
Before the love of a stranger.
Don't get close to me
I am disruption
A radiance in negativity
Never bright as crimson eye
Intoxicated to weep
Upon the face of my impurity.
For only a future lined in hurt
Will ever be your fate.
Don't come closer
Though I trust not myself.
I am accursed
Forever alone until
I greet my final day.
The Girl In A TeardropThere sits a shattered girl,The Girl In A Teardrop4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Imprisoned in her tormented tears,
Wishing she had not wasted her youthful years,
Looking for her one true pearl,
Who never showed his flawless face.
There weeps a sad girl,
Reflecting her mask in the mirror,
Seeing her self becoming thinner and thinner,
And now she sees the echoes of her age,
Guiding her back from her heartbroken mind.
There breathes a sorrowful girl,
Staring out of her sweet nectar sobs,
Hoping to escape from her self-infliction,
But what is out there for her to find?
Except a dawn of despair and dereliction.

HopeWhat would you do,Hope4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When it's all over?
Would you stand up,
Straight as mountains old,
And shrug your shoulders?
It might be;
Your final end.
But would it be worse,
If you had waited?
How could you have known,
This was it?
Would you have just stood,
Back like rivers bold,
And watched it's demise?
Like pariah zealots above,
Gazing down from,
Black flower skies?
Why should you,
Have thought to reconsider?
Would you have just given up,
And let minute things,
Slip by and slide away?
Was it to be your own idiocy?
Or breath of ignorance,
Destroying the fragile dark,
From the mighty light;
This very day?
What was it that made you,
Stay here to breathe?
Was it that inky niggle in,
The chaos of your mind,
And that instinct within,
To just carry on and cope?
Most would declare that,
You are an angel,
But some say without
Courage: there is only hope.
