How You Remind MeWhy must you remindHow You Remind Me2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
of the past I left behind?
You make the faces in the wind
howl their stinging reprimand,
Why must you remind
of the light I failed to find?
Complete blindness without a spark
forged my chains within the dark,
Why must you remind
of the angel who was so kind?
The warmth of fire in her eyes
only hastened her burning demise,
Why must you remind
of the voice that would always grind?
The words of a snake that learned to bark
never failed to find their mark,
Why must you remind
of the soul that has resigned?
The one person who I cannot see
the one person who is me.

Love SongAs the light fades into darkness a sole shadow moves towards the center of the stage.Love Song2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Bewildered by the silence, she looks around her and sees nobody else is there
Her heartbeats echo throughout the hollow room, providing a familiar rhythm.
A whisper of a voice escapes from the shadow and she is relieved she is not alone.
It speaks beautiful words, delicious emotions and impossible promises.
She believes it all in spite of her own un-trusting heart, and the whisper turns to song.
The song sweeps through her hair, stings her eyes and softly kisses her lips.
It delicately flows into her ears and once inside it makes love to her heart.
It melts into her brain and she digests each word into her tormented body.
She can see red lights begin to flicker behind her, and the heartbeat quickens.
The song speeds up, the room is spinning and filling with a dense black fog.
The shadow on the stage begins to glow and then the image comes into focus.
For one brief second she sees the music maker, for

We WishWe wish,We Wish8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
We wish for life.
We Wish for wealth.
We wish for love.
We wish upon a star,
To make dreams come true,
To make life brighter,
We wish for health.
We wish for fame.
We wish as flip the coin into the well,
For such a small token we want grand things,
We wish for all matter of things,
Big and small,
We wish because we’d rather wish than grab our dreams,
And make them come true ourselves,
We wish for a job that we love,
We wish for happiness,
When happiness cannot be wished for,
We wish for things that cannot be granted,
We should take our lives by the hand,
And show it where we want to be,
What are dreams are,
What we wish upon that star,
Should be something we’re willing to fight for,
Yet we wish,
And dream and wish,
What do you wish?

OnceI met Death, once.Once1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And he was welcoming.
I smelled the blood
as it escaped from my body; as it ran from my wounds.
I tasted the salty tears
of which he kindly wiped from my face.
I felt his bony hands;
and they were like daggers that pierced my skin.
I watched as his dark cloak
engulfed me into a black nothingness.
In my suffering, I waited,
waited for his unforgiving clutch upon my soul.
I heard his rattling breath
as I drew my last.
I met Death, once.
And I welcomed him with open arms.
Forever UntitledHow is it best to describe a feeling.Forever Untitled9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
A feeling that cannot be translated into words.
How to say I am empty, but still alive,
when everything I try is a shell to my meaning.
How to describe the ringing in my ears,
constant and endless,
and distorting my mind.
The silence in my chest,
hollow and bare.
My tightening gut,
when I'm at my lowest.
The pain at the back of my eye,
when I can't stand to see.
My quivering hand,
threatening to end it all.
And my 'self',
which wants me to live.
Secret WishesLive for a day,Secret Wishes8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Far beyond the sun.
Live for a night,
Hidden on the dark of the moon.
Live for tomorrow’s unknown,
And yesterday’s memories.
Fly on your dreams,
Awake and asleep.
Fight for your soul,
If you lose it, no one will know.
Swim deep in an ocean of tears,
Shed for broken dreams,
And faces unseen.
Find the heart that beats in the dark,
Cup it gently-it will shatter if jarred.
Whisper secrets as it beats,
Slow and deep,
Haunting wishes slip away,
As the heart tears them away.
Hold tight, weary man,
For the end has not yet come,
Riches still to be discovered,
In this world of wonder.
Ancient voices whisper,
Their lives hidden deep,
Their mysteries still uncovered,
Deep within the past.
Ghost of yesterday slip past,
Their broken souls weep,
For dreams unknown,
While your heart still beats,
And your mind still thinks,
Know an answer’s always there.
Lose not your dreams in misery,
Hold them tight and still believe,
That one day they will come to pass,
In this thre

As clean as bubbles in a pool of suds.
As deep as a wound, as high as a kite.
As up as down, as left as a right.
As sharp as a bark, as dull as gray.
As lost as a needle in a stack of hay.
As sweet as sugar and everything nice.
As sour as jealousy, green with envy.
Hot as anger, cold as ice.
These two extremes control my life.

That thrives in my crackling chest
When you push me away from your crying arms
Harboring a mansion of guilt
With beds unmade
And rooms unclean
The disarrays of your past
Pleading for restoration
Come to me
As you are
When the falling skies are big and red
Bleeding the pains of life
Hear the melodies of my regard
And love for you
Take it all out on me
Leave a thousand marks if you have to
Take me under
Push me down
Because I’ll push you harder
Only to fall right on top of you
Anything to kiss the silk lining of your lips
And every single piece of worth that you are

InsomniaNow, now, all of you. It’s late.Insomnia2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Mind, stop wandering all over creation; you can only juggle so many things at once.
Neck, stop whining; sometimes, life puts us in uncomfortable positions and you just have to accept that.
Nose, I’m worried about you. You’ve been stuffed up and shut off from everything all evening… In the morning, I want you to open up more.
And, you, heart, would do well to be quiet every once in a while; especially at this late hour. No one wants to hear about your newest anime crush at 1:00 am.
Extremities, calm yourselves. Stop all your nervous fidgeting; it’s very distracting. That goes double for you, fingers and legs.
…Are you even listening?
Ugh. Of course not. You can’t be all ears, I suppose…
But honestly... No, stop that! Settle down!
I implore you; no, I’m begging you.

You're the jewel kindling in my eyes,
revealing oracles of true love again.
Among your light chestnut skin,
my soul embraces your luring smile.
Breaking every faint touch of doubt,
I drift in your essence for a while.
You're the sensuous oriental breath
that keeps me warm in the night.
You're the vibrant gleaming star
that helps me through life's flight.
You're the sweetest taste of rain
that one could ever hope to see.
You're that exclusive kind of gem
that means all the world to me.

And wouldn’t you know it, I forgot my parachute
So here I am free falling, wondering when I’ll hit the ground
Wondering if maybe the landing won’t be so bad
Maybe I won’t break my face on the ground, kind of thing
I’ve reached the “ground” to find it’s been flooded with warm salty seas
And wouldn’t you know it, I forgot my life jacket
Not that I need one, I swim fine but I get tired
It’s so human of me
And all I can do is kick, kick, kick, my way around until maybe I find dry ground
I find the ground and I see it’s full of people that are worse off than me
I know, I get it, I can’t be sad, I can’t be down
Well I can but I can’t complain about it because it could always be worse, you know?
I’d much rather it be worse for me, not so I can complain mind you all, but so maybe people will be happier
And maybe the world would be better, just maybe

Succumb to uncertainty;
stand your ground, next to me.
Breathe, respire, inhale…hold it;
lets see black euphoria

Take me to eternity;

I'll let you win.
Kiss my lips;
finger paint your story along my torso.
Lets play I spy with our arousals;
find my flavour.
Remember me, as I am, this instant;
tell me your woes.
Lets play sherades with the stars;
you can guess my reason.
Come with me, I'll take you away;
