Turned to talk to you today
But no one was there
I'd forgotten again
Went to your funeral today
They had your favorite flowers
It was pretty
Your mom came over for dinner today
She left before dessert
I think she cried
Found the sweater I had borrowed today
Did you know how much you'd hurt us?
I know you did
Your boyfriend talked to me today
He said he understood how I felt
I just walked away
Went to your house, found my pills today
Did I tell you your parents are moving?
They can't take the memories anymore
Wanted to hurt someone today
Make someone share my pain
But I couldn't
Started killing my pain today
Maybe if I can punish myself
God will forgive

While I sit here and cry?

How can you go

(I can't believe i said yes-
when you asked me to be your wife...)
You heartless bastard-
You've reduced me to
a bleeding, crumbling
Soul-less, blind existence
Can't you see?!?!?!!?!?!
I hate what you've
done to me.
Dancing with unicornsDancing with unicorns11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I have a dream,
Of fairytales that lie.
A war of bees and butterflies.
A war of elegance against power.
A war of the wind and lightning.
More destruction than any mortal war.
This frost of summer,
This rain of tears.
Will drown the silence,
Will drown the pain.
In my forest of fairytales.
Shooting stars are only a glimpse,
Of the dances of unicorns.
As they leap from reality through fantasy,
Dance without guilt, fear, silence
Through heaven and through hell.
Through our dreams, through our fairytale.
When these unicorns cry,
Their tears form galaxies.
When these unicorns cry,
Their pain shatters the heavens.
These unicorns with their painted fate.
These unicorns feel no love, no hate.
There will be no tomorrow,
For this Fairytale of sorrow.
You SaidYou Said10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You said that you loved me
Me, the person, for who I am
But I wasn't allowed to be me when I was with you
Was that really love, is that what love is?
You said you wanted to help me
Yet instead you criticized, you put me down
Never gave me a chance to get better
Was that really help, is that what help is?
You said you wanted to cherish me
But you broke my heart into a million pieces
You stepped on what was left of my soul
Is that how you cherish, is that what cherishing is?
You said you would try to understand me
Yet your mind was closed to the meaning of my words
Your ears could not hear what I was saying
Is that true understanding, is that what understanding is?
All I wanted to do was love you and have you love me
No strings attached
All I wanted to do was be with you and share my life
I never asked for anything in return
But all of me was never enough to please you
All that I am was not good enough
You said you would never walk away
And now you said, Goodbye
. my confession .. my confession .10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Every single evening,
when twilight deciedes to take over the bright sky once again,
I take my thoughts for a walk.
Every single evening,
when the daylight gives in,
I make my confession to the only ones who are always there to listen.
This is it.
This is my confession, my precious voiceless confidants.
Every single evening they fly away,
carrying another fugutive thought, another part of me.
Setting me free.

Little boat drifting to sea
Swallowed up so suddenly
I sit safe upon the shore
What does it matter to me?
Newborn baby boy he dares
To see things that aren't there
A gisft lost on all of us
But I, why should I care?
Fire falls down from the sky
Echo million voices cry
But I, I don't even care
And I, why should I lie?
Hummingbird floating softly
To and fro under the tree
I sit only feet away
But when I look I do not see.
Soulless is what you'd call me
But I don't care as you can see
I, I do enjoy my life
In this haze of apathy.
Came The AngelsCame The Angels11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Came the angels of tainted perfection
To line our hearts with ammunition
Adorned with twisted dreams of peace
To quell the fire of rapt ambition
Came the angels of newborn damnation
Fresh from the womb of brutal demise
Appeased with misfortune and vengeful souls
To gnaw our skin and gauge our eyes
And still, and still, the fires raged,
As victims fell to pre-dug graves.
Exiled creatures fresh from hell
Wished our shattered bodies well
And still, the roses failed to bloom
Crown with thorns, my blood consumed
Ebony blood runs cold as ice
Let loose with heartfelt sacrifice…
BurningBurning9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
If you look into my mind
Leave everything else behind
Leave all logic and all learning
You will find that all is burning
If you wake up late at night
Walk out where there is no light
You will see without discerning
All around you things are burning
If you don't like what you see
Walk outside under a tree
Take a match if you are yearning
Soon you'll find the tree is burning
If you learn to like the flame
Then you will know who to blame
Deep inside my brain is churning
Nothing can stop me from burning
If you find you can't get free
You will end up just like me
Because when the world stops turning
Everything will soon be burning
Safe Passage ver 2Who is she, what is her lifeSafe Passage ver 210 years ago in Open More Like This
Daily tourment and torturing pain
Struggles with family through sickness
Battles with each other in times of health
Aside from that, the world shuns her
Despises her for her beauty, her mind and soul
Even in sleep the laughs plague her weary being
An intolerable amount of years spent loathing existence
How can she remedy the disease of life?
Suicide, no thats an ugly thing to call it
Self liberation from false imprisonment, thats it!
As the moon sets, she will rise in the name of freedom.
Take the knife from the cabinet and dig her self free
Escape the shackles of the burden called life
Looked down upon once, she now will gaze down from heaven
Her body stained by crimson relieve
Fleeing soul escaping through plentiful wounds
Death by a thousand cuts.
Her rescue from lifes prision is almost near.
Blood rains down upon the hateful earth,
Saturating the hearth with scarlet despair
As things get dark she hums a small prayer
Wishing her own soul safe passage to

a good thing to ask would be
why have I waited so long.
Do you remember burning me around your neck? I singed your hair, but didn't say anything.
It just curled from my fingers.
I sit far away now-
wrapped around my new love like a cat,
telling ghost stories and missing your shoulders,
flicking back and forth against the subway walls.
I got a letter today
a train schedule
another reminder of my
residence in the wings.
why have I waited so long?
I remember the day
you sat in my livingroom
somber, surrounded by fruit,
while I ran back and forth
miserable and sweating, trying to
find something appropriate to wear at the funeral.
you played at his memorial
and I watched
leaning back on the carpet and forgetting
entirely where I was.

Your beautiful face

Eating the tissues

Paralyzing the muscles
That sustain my control

Your intoxicating pheromones
Crashing into my body
Snapping the bones
That sustain my temple
I surrender my consciousness
Your touch still tingling
Your velvet skin
Piercing through my flesh
Spilling the organs

I swallow my tongue
Your taste still overwhelming
Your ambrosial flavor
Driving into my chest
Lacerating the soul

Words that hang you
Strangle you with your defiant weeping
Making sence of all their wrongs
Quiet while your mind is seeking
Words to seethe through
Burning with your constant dreaming
Hoping for the fateful day
Not to come for rightful treating
Haunting you for longly hating
Thoughts you keep for much to long
Keeping safe is so degrading
Words don\'t show through
Talking won\'t show your mindless weaving
Escaping not all of their ranting
Daggers peirce and blood is seeping
Words are nothing
Not in this world of relentless drowning
Breathing keeps reality coming
Maybe breathless is only what I\'m wishing

Her eyes ventured back...but she didn't. She couldn't look back. Not yet.
But-- She would miss him.
As she got into the blue car it was filled with dust, leaves, and undergrowth. Her parents did not understand. It had been such a long period of time since they had been in their car. "Yes, must be. But what a heartless joke," her mother said. But Chihiro just took a deep breath through her nostrils, sighing. "What's wrong, Chihiro?" her father asked in his gruff voice. "Nothing," she replied. "You still can't get over moving?" asked her mother sweetly. "Of course not," she replied, still a bit dazed by the happenings. She gingerly touched the hair-band made by her friends. Granny, No-face....all of them. But especially Haku. "Haku..." she whispered, not audible for one of her parents to hear.
The car came to a halt in front of a blue house with nice white trim. "Isn't it lovely?" asked Chihiro's mother, Yuuko. "It's a fine home," said the father. "What do you th

Decisions were already taken.
At the day of birth

Oh say can you see,
That our land is free?
Through hurt and through pain
Horror was no feign
Buildings so tall and so strong
Unbreakable. We were wrong.
The cement cracked and timbers did fall,
Our firefighters heeded the call.
Air was full of dust, ash, and smoke,
It alarmed the country that had barely just woke.
Heroes went in and their duty they did,
Not one emotion was hid.
As people walked, stumbled and crawled,
Heavens to Betsy, why did they fall?
Not one mind didnt wonder
Why the towers rent asunder.
Eyes filled with anger and tears,
They showed their own masters fears.
Nothing could have been done
Under that rising sun
To stop this awful deed,
They unknowingly planted in our hearts a seed.
Determination filled our hearts
Wed go on even through the smarts.
They couldnt imagine our bravery,
Their plans failed on flight ninety-three.
Rumors of rubble in places they loved assured it
Heroes forced the terror to forfeit.

Sinking further into this world you've opened to me.
Magic callings intertwinning all around us.

Smiling softly, thoughts crossing.

Can't shake the thoughts, feelings to strong.
I'll give everything,

"Now, Ellena, what did your grandmother tell you about playing in the swamp?" The voice that asked the question was soft and far from scolding. Every word that the young woman spoke seemed to be wrapped in love and tied with a smile. For some, such a caring tone would be reserved for only those dearest to them, but for Jessica it just came naturally. For her, every being - human or animal, living or dead - was precious.
That didn't make the child who sat before her any less nervous, the petite girl biting her lip and hanging her head forward so that her chestnut bangs partially hid her face. Far shorter than Jessica's own locks, they were also quite a bit darker and did an admirable job of casting the girl's face into sullen shadow.

Heart felt Melody
A heart in quiet darkness
Beats alone in bitter silence
Heart felt melody's no longer made
But rather cold heartless pain
Is all that comes from this bleeding heart
As sadness is all it knows
And nothiness its only friend
As lies slowy crowd its mind
Killing off it's soul with knives
Of its own design.
