If you are my friend, please answer me this:
Are we friends, or are we not?
You told me once, but I forgot,
So tell me now, and tell me true,
So i can say, I'm here for you.
Of all my friends I've ever met,
You're the one I wont forget,
And if i die before you do
I'll go to heaven and wait for you.
I'll give the angels back their wings,
and risk the loss of everything.
There isn't a thing i wouldn't do
To have a friend just like you.
Crazed EyesCrazed Eyes3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I bite the inside of my cheek
It makes me think
Oh how I stare, without a blink
Eyes squinting, head lifted, I leave
I walk slowly down my path
Forsaken souls, they make me laugh
They cry for help
I watch them burn in hell
I wave patiently
Their stare, gazing
I meet the crazed eyes
Of a killer, they are so bright!
My smile, turns to frown
I take off my crown
His crazed eyes go blank
He bows at me, as I hate
I'm in control now
I have your life in my hand
I smile, I know for now
I am content
FreezeFreeze5 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
No death, no sound, no life
As this rose signifies
Inside I mourn
Over a powerful feeling
My heart is torn
Come, winter frost
Do what you must
For your ice can freeze
And it endures for eternity
Among many hearts
It is better to freeze
Than to endure this pain
So blow your winds
With its cold frost
And let it stop
For this, winter is forever
Among the ice and frost
If spring comes near
And melts the snow
And the frost
Forever trapped, in the cold
Forever cold, in the frost
Until my heart gets true sun
Until my heart gets true love

i promise i'll love you always, i promise
i'll fix the coffee machine tomorrow,

why this fucked-up little town
unmade its bed, swallowed an ambien,
swallowed you. listen:

When I was six a phoenix

Underwater I grabbed for fire.

I hope he still has
bald spots. I hope he still

He was death,

My uncle knows plastic-

If he drinks enough,

from amber tongues.
On my fifteenth birthday, the boy
with stars on his fists and Saturn’s
rings in his eyes told me I was pretty.
It was the first time
anyone had said so. I learned
how to hold my breath,
how to apply foundation,
how to cry
without bleeding tar
down my cheeks,
and how to wear my bones
He says he does it for the money.
He says you have to come up slowly
or else something inside of you will explode.
I didn’t understand what he meant

The IndividualYou wear your skin, with mask of sin,The Individual1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
A spiderweb of lies. Of "individuals",
Breaking ties, alone at last
They seem to hide, a fixation of vanity...
I am the "individual"!
This is my golden ritual,
Refuse all that is me,
A web of lies I be!
But can you see, what you've become,
Showing these scars made by none-
Other than you?
They were made just for you...
They were made just by you...
Made to be pitied too...
You are the "individual"!
Lies are your golden ritual,
Refuse what you should be,
To live with agony!

off my skin. Crumbling to the weight
of reality. Crushing dreams which outweigh
thoughts of utopia. Life's cumbersome
relief, falling apart. My knees stagger
along. Treading roads meant to hurt.
Pain unbearable felt with every piercing
stride. Bleeding me dry, I have nothing
left to give. Empty a vessel carrying hope.
Moving, crawling, squirming forward. The
dirt moving through the skin infecting the
flesh. Spoiling the purity that had once existed
in places shut out from the barren scapes of
reality. An idealist who does not realize; reality
paints a bleak picture on a canvas that is fading.
A dream world cascading in an illusion of life
which was meant to be. Reaching out desperately.
Trying to hold on as the world sees the crimson
clot which covers my naked body. Cheering on
a brutal song which echoes about in a deaf
man's ear. Forever heard as the rumbling cuts
through whatever is left to give to these empty
fields. As the dust gathers around c

Dear God, will you tell her that I'm sorry
For not being there when it happened?
Dear God, will you tell her that story
About the lost ship and the angry captain?
Dear God, will you sing her to sleep
Every night that she's lonely?
Dear God, will you tell her to keep
In mind that she's the one and only?
Dear God, will you tell her that I wasn't mad
When I didn't pick up the phone?
Dear God, will you tell her that I'm sad
And that I'll never leave her alone?
Dear God, will you tell her that I love her,
So much that it aches?
Tell her that now she knows what was above her
Because she didn't have time to push on the brakes.
Dear God, tell her that I'll never forget
Her blue eyes and sweet voice
Tell her that I'll never regret
She'd always be my first choice.
Dear God, tell her that our little boy
Is really proud of his mom
Tell her that he finds joy

No meaning to my words,

The music I once loved
Sounds off, eternally
Teasing my silenced soul,

Haunting my every dream
All that i can do is scream,

Nothing left but the truth,
and all the lies that hide it
The pain is still there, smiling at me,

Gamzee laughed and then went quiet, just sorta looking up at Karkat.
Karkat was looking to the side and then glanced down at him and saw him staring and blushed a little, "What?"
"About what?" He asked curiously; his blush going away now.
"'bout miracles.....you know, most things I consider to be miracles revolve around you." He smiled a little. "When you smile, when you laugh, when you blush.....all miracles."
Karkat's heart did three flips in his chest and he couldn't help but smile a little at the kind words, even if they were coming from Gamzee..
"You should smile more often....your whole face lights up when you do."

And I like to mess 'em up before they start getting preachy.

I was born on a full moon with silver clarity
I'm that woman who sleeps on olive groves
Who makes angels fall in love with men's daughters
And lets herself be tricked by your sweet spells
Who obeys the very impulse of her heart
Do you know who I am, where I came from ?
I live where stars grow bigger on a light breeze
Where butterflies were once flowers
Where God blessed my garden in Eden with peace
There, I lay on a cloud softer than foam
When the day splits into two halves, you see me
My steps are as light as those of a chamois
My hair running wild; wings of an evil crow
My mouth has the roundness of a precious ring
Cheeks, two fields of roses blooming again
Under my feet grow trees, and remain ever green
You need my palms, you seek my blood and fear
Before you crave for more, grant me what I wish for
Kiss the ground before me, show me your loyalty
Borrow the devil's wings, bring me bouquets of stars
I want that purple flo
Let me drownLet me drown4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
It seemed as calm as an ocean could be
Almost as wide as the sea
With a mind that vast
How couldn't I dive in?
I guess that's why I decided to swim
So I delved into the deep ocean blue
I swam looking for you
I dove into the abyss
And I found this:
A snuffed out light
A heart that someone broke with all their might
A few broken parts
And some lost art
All of this caused me confusion
So I kept going to reach my conclusion
I wanted to see more
I kept straying away from the shore
After awhile I became lost
I felt my mind lose conscious thought
The water around preceded to choke me !
The lights grew darker so that I couldn't see!
I rushed to the surface to get back to land
But the water charged after me as I swam
The surface by then had turned into a storm
The ocean had taken on a horrible form
It consumed the sky and all around
There was no such thing as solid ground
The waves took me and dragged me down.....
And I felt myself float away
and begin to drown.....

That's the only word that kept echoing in your tormented mind.
Ever since the Allies turned against you, your whole world had been chaos. It was practically World War 3, for heaven's sake! The economy went downhill, your country's prime minister was shot about a month ago and half of your population was gone. And when we say gone, it either means that they fled to another country with the help of fake passports or that they were simply dead.
Genocide was happening pretty much everywhere. And no matter what you did, you couldn't stop it. Already 65% of your population didn't exist anymore and the numbers only increased with each passing week.
You weren't the only country who had to go through this suffering, though. Other weaker countries like Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine had been taken down. Latvia was close behind, but Estonia was surprisingly still standing.
Stronger countries like Russia, Sweden and Germany were currently trying to fight off t
