just like that.
Just like the act of breathing;
soundless and inevitable.
Like an eager girl slipping
straps from her shoulders,
the soft crush of silk at her feet.
Oh how I hate the starsOh how I hate the starsOh how I hate the stars3 months ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
plaguing me each night
with cruel honesty
of their light
of how they hang
so far away,
nooses choking my hopes
with all they weigh.
Oh, how the stars hate me
to shoot through,
and away from me
carrying with them
wishes I'll never see.
how the horrors of your light
blind me when I look to you
for something each night.
But with the coming of each day
I always forget
and every night
I'm forced to regret
when I look to your light.
Oh, how the stars hate me
and how I hate the stars
for the things which I see.

she was just sixteen when she first fell in love
a boy with brown hair and green eyes
a pledge ring was shared and an oath made that day
to love, and to never let die
he was eighteen when he asked her to marry
a girl with blonde hair and blue eyes
wedding rings were shared and a vow made that day
to cherish, and never tell lies
they were twenty-one when their firstborn arrived
a boy with brown hair and blue eyes
glances were shared and a promise made that day
to protect, and help him to thrive
he was just seven when he ventured too far
a boy with curious wide eyes
sorrow was shared and as their world fell apart
she cried, "Oh God, why please, oh why?"
they were both thirty when they renewed their vows
still in love, though pain in their eyes
a promise was shared to conceive once again
time heals, but it rarely e'er flies

roll over pocked and pitted skin.
Pinch, twist, flick.
Leafy locks ruffled by tiny hands
which bruise the soft and supple skin
of he who has aged just enough.

Your Metre Isn't my LitreWe are not cookie-cutter people.Your Metre Isn't my Litre1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
We don't all have the same
Minds and hearts and eyes -
There is no use trying
We are all different.
So stop comparing yourself
Who aren't cut from the same
Cutter as you.
We all think differently
And that's great.
And whether it's fate
Or something else
We are all created
Equal, but different.
And that's okay
But it makes comparison impossible -
So don't try
To measure the litres of your heart
Against the metres of someone else's
Some people can draw,
Some people can write,
Some can reason
And others can fight.
We all have a talent
And we all have separate minds -
What he finds
And that's okay -
It doesn't make x
Any better than y.
And for the love of above,
Don't measure yourself
Just because you didn't get
It doesn't take
Your brilliance away.
IgnoranceWhy do you care so much,Ignorance1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
About what other people do?
You say it’s you issue too,
That it degrades some set of morals.
Why must you speak so loudly,
When no wants to hear?
You say it’s your duty,
But no one asked you to.
Why must you have such ignorance,
But speak as if you know the truth?
You say you know your right,
But you don’t really, do you?
The morals aren’t gone,
The people aren’t degraded,
Its just silly old you,
Butting in with your hatred.

Who lurks in the dark

But who's always there
Just observing the world
Without really understanding it
And waiting for the day
The day you notice me
And invite me into the light
Grow upWorthless trash,Grow up1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Causing problems again.
What’s your deal,
Can’t you just leave it alone?
Not smart enough to be even at the bottom.
Why can’t you just grow up,
Can’t you start acting your age?
A psychopath you are.
Do you laugh at their pain,
Like a monster?
Caring only for yourself.
You don’t care about them,
That much I know.
So go away reckless child,
And grow up a little,
You might be worth something.
DecayVibrant illuminations that flicker,Decay2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And a mind drowned in syrup so thick.
Searing agony that can dictate your mind,
A disease that pains the body,
And invading lukewarm liquid.
A hand to run down my face,
Like you were a god to pity me,
And a cry to deafen the heavens.
Place me somewhere raw,
As if I’m the princess of ice,
And declare it too late.
Seal my never healing wounds,
Like you seal a hole in cloth,
And dress me in white.
Never let me vanish,
Never let me decay.
Let me flourish like a flower,
A divine queen on an eternal throne,
Never to wither away.
But my pleas are worthless.
The formaldehyde won’t keep me,
And this coffin will seal me,
In this maggots buffet.
BreakHe told me not to pick rosesBreak1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
because beautiful things are fragile
and they are fast to break.
He then asked me if I was broken yet
I picked a rose with a lot of thorns
I left it upside down to dry out
When it was done I gave it to him
and I said
I'm still put together

Under the rain
Staring at the coffin
At a stranger's funeral
We're all alone
Feeling the storm
But not the pain
For he's but a stranger
And the graves around us
Are just there
Keeping us company
During this empty moment

StarsI reached for the stars,Stars1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Longing for the strength and brilliance they held.
But my hand came back with shards of glass, streaked with blood.
Jagged pieces dug into my palm, broken fragments of a dream.
For stars are not meant to claimed or owned,
But acknowledged and gazed at from a distance.
Their world is not the same as yours,
And they do not wish to be confined and limited,
By your personal desires.
