My Mind Is A Graveyard And My Body Is A Scar.There’s constantly something wrong with meMy Mind Is A Graveyard And My Body Is A Scar.1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I can’t look in the mirror for fear I’ll see
Another part of me that I can’t let be
I want to cut it out of my soul
And just live with the gaping hole
Take control and choose to lose
The part of my heart where the insides bruised
I didn’t fall; I was caught by the lonely, crushing darkness
Of this I’m sure; it was there more than you ever were
I don’t know why the love I need
Is flowing in the blood I bleed
Yes, I’m confused and, yes, I’m a mess
Frustrations magnified by stress
I don’t know why I pushed so far
New cuts cover where the old ones are
My scars are scarred, my heart’s in shards
I’m breaking down like a house of cards
I fell already blind into decimating blackness
And used what I could find of my heart as target practice
A Rose's HeartbeatBeauty within the Heart....Blooms the rose of true love...A Rose's Heartbeat1 year ago in Romance More Like This
France and Japan, one or the other,
But Tama-sans heart is for another,
Hidden as a boy, the grace of the girl,
Haruhi made his eyes shine like pearls
Like it or not, he was there for her,
to protect what he deeply holds dear
it was sick for the Zuka club to hear
that she worked as a boy
what they thought that she was their toy
But he and the hosts proved them wrong,
showing that Haruhi truly belonged.
Then the next time they took her with glee,
Tamaki was down below, shouting:
I WILL CATCH YOU, TRUST ME!"
And off the pedestal like her host implored,
and the Princes words were well spent,
even though she landed not in his arms,
but ontop of his body on the floor.
More time passes, his hearts rose starts to bloom
that the loneliness and hate tried to consume,
but his heart is stronger than the dark itself,
it won't put its warmth on the forgotten shelf.
And then it comes the Princes final test,
when Eclair stirs

the world left waiting
raised in closed rooms
with little light
they grew tall and died
those silent millions
the death they feared
and could have avoided.
Who can find one original sin
in all of you?
For what is sin
to the inanimate,
hungry hangdog vegetable
depressing to look at
what you've become.
The earth did not kill you
nor the wind nor the cold
(unseen killers indeed
are not blamed nor mentioned)
You left yourselves
the unspeakable crime
that so many lay fruitless
after the trial.

Before he beheaded the Jabberwock,
vorpal blade in hand.
Then I'd pay a visit to Kubla-Khan
in his magic home
And blow the top right off of his

Fishing away the rest of his days

So please stop trying to change me.
Don't stuff me into monkey-suits,
Don't push me towards harsh reality.
Stop asking me to grow up,
Stop asking me to mature.
I want to relish what I have,
Not have it snatched away from me.
I'm scared of facing the world alone,
Yet that's exactly what you're asking me to do.
I'm still a child,
I still need support.
Don't oblige me to face the future,
I still have time to figure it out.
Don't put me in a situation
That requires an adult.
I'm not a grown-up,
So don't demand so much from me.
I'm nothing but a kid,
So please let me enjoy that.

I can smell him. His scent is very strong.
He will not be able to get away from me. Have they forgotten my sense of smell?
“Because she will harm you.”
I will hunt him down. And they know it.
“What can a girl like her do to me?”
I will not give up. Because he hurt her.
“She is going to kill you.”
I can't wait until they let go of me. I think that they can't hold me down for much longer.
Hehe. There he runs.

He can run...

But he can't hide.

i've got something to admit
i was in the field
i was watching the flowers get dressed
well they're just so pretty naked
petals tucked into their sides
and watching them unfold
i was watching them pull down the sunrise
and put it on themselves
so i'm a sinner for it
cause i watched them bathe, too
stand around together in the shower
a hundred ladies in their beautiful skins
pink small ones
big blue proud ones
letting the droplets collect and residue
on their finery and shamelessly bare leaves
well that's my confession preacher
i watch the flowers strip and tease

She cannot take life or this dream of death anymore
Nor could a sane observer accept her torment
As always, she sits in her apartment alone
Feeling the world expecting her to try even harder
Punished for the sins of those who would spit on her soul
Women are always the first to be blamed
The bruises on her face tell a story beyond words
The sun will go down soon, the last vestige of light
Alone again, next to a silent telephone
Tears dripping onto her dress

But I'll never understand what kind of happiness comes from
Crushing pastries under your foot
She could stitch sunshine along her wrists
And leave the rest of us in the dark
Trying to paint our own cerulean skies
And leaving us all bereft when we only managed
To stain our skins blue
And she could dance a two-tattoo on the arch of moon beams
Licking her diamond lips to taste something more
Willow wick finger tips gleaming with still flames
Tempting a hand into her grasp so that she might
Burn life back into our hollowed bodies
She traced constellations on her lungs
So she could breathe the star dust
And have shimmering breath all year long
Instead of just in December
Her canines glinted when she grinned
Candle drops of light shinning in each tooth
And melting our hibernation patchwork
To reveal our summer skin
Her veins surged with hot apple cider and wildfires
And her cigarette smoke smelt of burning wood
Her orange and red

Hey there everyone, don't go and run
They're just here to have their fun
You've got no say in what they do
They are the gifed and chosen few
Don't try to stop them, they'll shoot you down
They've already destroyed halk of our town
A gun in their hands, a mission at heart
Ready to die, to blow us apart
They said they'd be good, and yet they lied
All for the sake of genocide
Hey there, teachers, get under your desks
You're about to have some special guests
Come watch the show, don't run away

Why didn't we help them, thosep oor lost souls?
Their hearts were tainted and filled with holes
Why couldn't we stop and deliver them from evil?
But we ignored them and allowed them to have their fill

Get off of your chair and crawl on the floor
Come watch the show, don't run away
The Columbine kids are here to stay
They have no future, only a job
They're not out to swindle you, cheat or rob

She was torn between them
but they never noticed.
They spoke with each other
but the words exchanged
were full of malice, dripping with hate.
That same hate festered in her
spreading, consuming her
from the inside out.
Branching from one thought:
Why was it that they couldn't get along?
Why was it so hard to hold both their hands at the same time?
Why was a simple desire like that so difficult?
Hate turned into sadness.
Tears drowned her,
words constricted her,
grabbing at her throat.
Her sadness and hate raged on,
a violent, clashing battle
raging between her head and her heart.
Pounding away in her skull, drowning out anything else.
She couldn't take it.
One painful breath

Barbed wires cutting painfully
into her heart.
One thought broke to the surface:
It is all my fault.
The mask slipped.
The mirror cracked.

Nicholas faced front again and looked outside the window of the cabin: the forest formed shadows on the land with its tall evergreen trees. The dim lights penetrating the cluster of leaves indicated that this dark hour was in fact a sunny afternoon. The calm and beautiful scenery contrasted the seriousness of the discussion these two men were having. Nicholas closed his eyes to think. All he could think of was Laura. Even this cabin he was staying had nostalgic presence of Laura. His answer was decided.
“I’m going to save her.” Nicholas told Mag while looking through the window, not looking back to face him.
“You are on parole, Shepard,” Mag reminded him, hoping that Nicholas would reconsider his decision. “If you go, I w
