I'm going to kill my cat today
'And why stop there', they delightfully shout
'why not take the whole family out'
They laugh so bitterly when I try to run
For them the fun has just begun
We have spies in every corner
You won't be able to escape much longer
The grim reapers coming and he's pointing at you
He'll echo warnings on radios and in the weather reports too
He'll chase you down streets; you won't know where to turn
Even in dreams you'll see his piercing eyes burn
Each moment's a nightmare but I can't wake up
They play out prophesies I wouldn't dare make up
Dead babies in nooses and devils walk the floor
Tormented until I can't take much more
Crawling insidiously from the mirrors I didn't cover
Spiders share information from one set to another
Nowhere is safe; the sane look on with glazed eyes
So I admit defeat and say my goodbyes
Noted down as suicide, but if you look a little further
I didn't choose my demise, it was simply murder.

Call me Anna, she says, hoping they'll get the vague reference, but they never do, mainly because it's too obtuse, and partly because nobody really reads Moby Dick these days.
But it matters not, nothing ever does. She wears her hair swept up and her mind swept away. There are the remains of a meal speckled upon her collar and down the front of her top, but people make sure not to comment. It wouldn't be right, but that's for later.
First, call her Anna. Heroines always had such exciting names, she mourned, drowning in jealousy that she instantly hated them all. She embraced the plain out of spite, and insisted that people called her by her boring middle name, started work as a librarian, and married a man who was the human embodiment of beige.
He didn't stand out anymore than she did. He wasn't tall and wasn't short, wore glasses in the least imposing way and sometimes spoke too quietly. He hated repeating himself, so told people to forget he said anything at all if they hadn't heard
Dream WorldDream World10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When I sleep
I think of all the things I wish that I had
Because my dreams are the things I wish to see
When I dream
I see vivid landscape
Beautiful things that in this world I take for granted
I see all the things I never noticed before
But wish I had
I see all my goals come to life
All my longings met
I see nothing that I may be upset about as long as I am dreaming
I never thought that life would become so good
As though I could feel I was once agian dreaming
As thought I'd never awoke
That I was still safe
Lying in my bed
She makes it all seem unreal
Makes it all seem like nothing could be wrong
Life used to be so hopeless
I was drowning in the sea of sadness
Ready to give up on everything I had once thought real
And then I layed down
Closed my eyes
And they reopened
And I looked around
And entered the dream I'm in now
A world where she exsists
Where my every need is met
For she is there toi fill them all
A world where everything makes sense
My Only DesireMy Only Desire10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I miss her
I miss who she is
Why can't I accept her absence
I'll never be able to continue
As long as I can't be with her
And as long as I'm not able to continue
I can't keep helping people
I see all these relationships around me
And they dont mean anything to each other
All they want is the sex
Or they look each other for looks
Or even at times just so they arent alone
And I am in love for who she is
And I want her for all she can be
Not many guys will say that
I dont want her for her body
Its not important to me what she looks like
Even though she is beautiful
I never thought I'd feel this way
Never thought I'd find anyone as pure as her
Somehow I did though
Somehow they dropped an angel
And I caught her
But its not fair
I love her
But can't be with her
What sense is that
Where is the justice
For what I've tried to do
Where is the one thing I asked for
I never wanted anyhting for the things I've tried to do
The people I tried to help
The "lost causes" I tried to revive
I never asked

OpheliaBarefoot she walked the palace floorOphelia2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
They bow heads of respect and nothing more
not much to distinct her from a common whore
under matted locks, her eyes red raw
She spoke in tongues, she spoke in song
The king exclaimed her mind hath gone
The queen gazed upon the sight forlorn
as Ophelia wailed from dusk til dawn
Pity the damage love can bring,
when forced to behold its incomparable sting
her screams, in their ears, still ring
watching her fragile soul lose everything
A death so beautiful, poetry doth declare it
Man tore her heart and, on sleeve, wore it
unapologetic greed broke her golden spirit
She bore the truth and forced all to face it
Their story written and lesson learnt well
the deadly sins banish the innocent to hell
her descent into madness was a fright to tell
Ophelia teetered, she tripped and then she fell

You have no friend's, yet are the friendliest person i know,

When they loved,I kept my distance,

Beyond pairs of broken wings
your's and mine
just look out of
your shuted window
Christmas is coming
both of us
on it's magical
on his wooden sledge
skies up the starlit night
to draw a smile
upon your lovely face
Down to the children
back to your memories
once young and sweet
is the best gift
I beg Santa`
to give it to you
while you listen
behind lonely shadows
in cold corners
I say to you`
you ever wanted
now I know
is the same things
I ever dreamed
only for you
to trust in me~
to cut you free
Fading FlameThe fire feels nice against my toes,Fading Flame8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And melts the cold away.
The flames will crack, the embers burn,
The heat will never stay.
My eyelids droop, my head hangs low,
I beg myself for sleep;
As I stay up, against my will,
With memories I still keep.
A lingering thought, a stolen glimpse
Of someone I can't touch-
They should have told me earlier
That love would hurt this much.
The fire goes out, and I can't tell
If what they said was true.
Insomnia was all I got
For staying in love with you.
I Hope I Recognize YouI Hope I Recognize YouI Hope I Recognize You8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Perhaps we will meet suddenly
With a stumble or a misstep
And that will lead to us clinging to each other
To regain our footing
Or maybe our eyes will meet across a crowded room
And we'll be drawn together by a mysterious curiosity
Perhaps we'll be introduced by a mutual friend
Or maybe even by a match-making co-worker
And we'll talk all night and nurse our espresso drinks
Touch on every subject of conversation
And laugh until we cry
And never notice where the time has gone
But will I recognize you?
The one that is made for me as I am made for you?
The one who completes me and I complete you?
The worry creases my brow and torments my sleep
Who are you? What do you look like?
Where are you from?
Thousands of questions invade my mind
And mingle with my romantic notions and
Thoughts of you invade my waking hours
And in the middle of the night…
Well I won't say what happens in the darkness
When I imagine your touch
But when we meet
