Let your heart holdYou'll find be at the bottomLet your heart hold2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Watch at how my bones shake
Caged by the blazing bars of shame
Watch at how my heart awakes
Not to shatter under pressure
When your safety's on the line
And when your thoughts begin to fly
The way you act is how you're defined
I'm not the one to fight
When I'm at the head of the crusade
holding the beast that lay inside
with the worries that come cascade
I started to surender
when the light began to run
I was controlled by massacre
I had to chase the fading sun
When I'm on a faulter
Or on the end of dejection's blade
Walking a tightrope with one last thread
I still wont let my heart fade
I'm sent down onto my knees
Last words the last thing to shed
But yet when death is a charade
Backing down is the last thought in my head
Show me to the shipwreck
Watch at how my lungs collapse
Without a remedy or herb
Stay and watch my self-worth relapse

But my mind is in agony
There's light all around
But my soul is a pit of darkness
The world is colorful
But my eyes see everything grey
I'm still alive
But I wish I was dead
Still, I'm here
Still, I struggle
Still, I offer you my hand
So we can escape this nightmare

Take a look around.
Nothing in sight.
Not a path to be found.
I am alone.
Unsure what to do.
Everything is new
I'm so afraid.
I begin to cry.
I'm so lost.
Don't know why.
I need your strength.
Please help me.
Guide me though.
Give me eyes to see.
I'm still scared.
I wish I could hide.
At least I know.
You'll be at my side.

From the dark tendrils of my past
That reached and grabbed at my mind
I tried to fight it
The empty promises filling my head
Until no room was left…
I tried to resist the darkness
And the power it seemed to hold
But soon the pain of my life was too much
And I gave myself up to the dark part of “me”.
I tried to keep myself
Some part of me never being tainted by darkness
But I had become emotionless- it didn’t matter anymore.
I tried to feel
But no happiness, joy, sorrow or grief
Could overcome these castle walls
I tried to love
To feel something meaningful again
But I became scared- of feeling that pain hurt me over and over
That I ran away….
I tried to go back
Back to my life- back to myself
When I cherished each and every emotion
I tried to remember that part of me
But she seems like a different person
No one I know….
But how can I go back
When there’s nothing of me left?

"You've kept me waiting for quite a while."
He wonders "Shouldn't death you fear?"
"I've always thought that death was near."
The girl turned away to sink what she said.
"I have always felt I was already dead.
I float through this world without a care.
It's almost like I'm not really there.
So, no I'm not afraid of no longer being.
You can see that I'm already nothing."
Death just nodded. What she said was true.
"Regardless it is time for me to take you."
The girl stood up, all ready to go.
An afterlife she thought, wasn't likely to show.
Death did his duty, and took her away.
The girl finally had her awaited day.
An (Un)ordinary Love SongI know I am broken deep inside,An (Un)ordinary Love Song2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Within my heart and within my mind.
Still you look at me like I’m a precious gem
And from it our love did stem.
How many nights have I wanted
To be with you, my thoughts daunted
By the fact of our society
And so I wished quietly.
“Tell me what it is like to love,”
I asked the stars from high above.
A twinkle was my answer
As I became infected with this cancer.
No amount of words can ever describe
The taste of the fruit of our love, so ripe.
There is no need for perfection
When you’ve already gained all of my affection.
And even when we grow old
And our love is only foretold.
No matter how we end,
I promise you will always be
In my memory.
To the Feminist from the Battered ManIt would be so easy to wear my emotions on my sleeves, to wear my pain on my skin and display my feeling publicly for all to see like a newly painted canvass in public museum.To the Feminist from the Battered Man2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
When I would think of their hands roaming my body, their words of hate and cruelty piercing my soul and their fist cracking my bones, I’d love it if I could just break down, tremble with tears and erupted into sobs.
Exactly like a …like a girl.
Don’t get me wrong ladies; you’re not all like this. I’ve seen you too when you’re corned, when you want only what you deserve…Justice. So you blame me for what another man did to you , besides, what one man does amplifies what we all do, does it not?
According to your standards it does.
So if I cry and scream, will you think differently of me? Will you think for just a second, that I’m human too? Will you finally believe me when I say that I’m not the man that hit you, not the man that raped your or beat you, not the

I left behind the rage and sadness
I became a simple man
locked my madness there and then
I lived for years,completely sane
almost brought my death and bane
and then I yelled:"That's it!"
and ran and jumped into the pit
and with the darkest scream of glee
my madness have returned to me
as it brought color to my world
and I laid back as it had whorled
me and my madness both agree
that together we are free
alone we suffer too much pain
and so insane I shall remain.

Sorry I haven't written... I have been extremely depressed because... well, I've been trying to take care of the cats. They're clean now, and I'm gradually feeding them, but of course they're not going to show much improvement over four days. But... the pregnant mama died three days ago... and I've been sobbing like mad. I took the poor thing's body to a vet to check if we could save the babies but... they had apparently been dead for a few weeks before mama died, which may have been a contributing cause. I told the veteranarian about rescuing all the cats and asked for advice. He said to just keep up with what I'm doing and show them lots of love. They need to know I'm a friend.
I've been taking special care of the youngest kittens. There's six of them, and I'm not sure who's the mother because all the cats seem to just ignore them. One of them opened its eyes yesterday, and they're a beautiful ice blue. I've been feeding them baby formula and keeping an eye on them a
