faces of loveLove is painfaces of love7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As sharp as a dagger
Piercing the heart
Left there to bleed
Love is beautiful
Hidden or on show
Simple as a flower
Or blinding like the sun
Love what makes it so
So easy, so gentle, so passionate, so
Flowing from every part of me
My heart, mind, hands
My heart beats
My mind races
Faint and unsure
Frantic and fast
I give you my heart
I give it to you!
I give you my heart
But it comes not alone
But with it is this
Passion so strong it burns
Desire so desperate it pulls
Belief so unshakable it stands
Trust so deep it penetrates
Honesty so forthright it scares
Flowing and physical and unreal
Painful and limitless and there
Comforting and binding
Seeking and glorious
Savage and wild and free
Light like day
Dark like night
And in between as grey is twilight
If I left youd have my soul
Youd have my mind
Youd have my unconditional love
Always- my love will stay
You will not be f
Silence Is The Scariest SoundI'm tired of waiting for you to come aroundSilence Is The Scariest Sound7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I'm sick of the silence because it's the scariest sound
I don't want to be lonely but I can't walk away
I cry silently because I don't know what to say
I pray at night, keep me sane for just one more day
I'm sorry, I just can't stand this pain
I'm crying in front of you
Stare blankly because you don't know what to do
I'm so sorry that I'm walking away
I'm so sorry that I'm leaving you on this sad day
I'd beg for a kiss
But then my face you'd miss
I'd rather be the only one to feel the hurt
I'll reflect on what I've learnt
But the pain of neglect scars my mind
My view is blinded by flashing lights
The sirens rang so loud
I wonder what they found..
A body lying still and cold on the floor
A body moaning with eyes so sore
A body so withered with the pain
And you couldn't even whisper my name
LOVE, IT'S LOVELove, It's Love, Oh Love, True Love, Precious Love!LOVE, IT'S LOVE6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
This emotion was sent from God above.
Love is a mystery, Love is magic, Love is miracle,
Love is not complex, Love explain the unexplainable;
Love is what you feel inside your heart,
The desire that longing without name, that terror in heart;
Love persists in the minds and conquer your hearts;
Love will never drift you apart;
Love is patient, love is kind,
Love heals all, Love is blind;
Love is pure, Love is marvelous,
Love is sweet, Love is glorious;
Love is a mental peace to share,
Love is the fulfillment of desires;
Love is eternal, Love knows no bounds,
Love always protects, always trusts,
Love always hopes, always perseveres.
Love keeps no record of wrongs,
Love rejoices with the truth, Love never fails.
Love is something you cannot hide,
It comes from a place deep down inside;
Love does the strangest things to your mind and soul,
You do not choose, who it is to be, your heart seal your destiny;
Love brings hope and joy, Love bri
GOSH DARN IT CUPIDCupid shot his arrowGOSH DARN IT CUPID6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It blasted from his bow
With heart-shaped tip ablaze
And arrow-shaft aglow
The first one hit me in the eye
It blinded but did not burn
I could not see your selfishness
Or the manner of your words
The second one pierced my belly
Tearing it to shreds
It oozed out premonition
And trapped butterflies instead
The third one took me from behind
Sending shivers down my spine
The trembling of my body
Drowned the warning of my mind
The fourth arrow stabbed into my foot
And compelled me to move to your arms
There it buried its head in the earth
And pinned me to your side
The fifth plunged into my heart
It touched my very core
The blood that pounded through my veins
Was tainted by cupid and his poisoned dart
I BegStanding at the horizonI Beg6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Dawn rising at my back
Arms spread wide
I hide no more
See me, I beg
Head tossed back
Lungs filled with dust
Give voice to pain
Hear me, I beg
Emotion doesn't change
Love doesn't fade
Away from the pain
Feel me, I beg
Everything I do
The desperate balance
Understand me, I beg
Love me, I beg
OvercastOvercast7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Rattling chains and rustling leaves,
One holds you back, while one sets you free.
I wish for once we could have no worries
Rather than live with these constant cold flurries.
Sunken eyes sink deep through your thoughts,
And time after time, your mind only clots.
We're a rag-tag duet of sorrow and pain,
Our wells of happiness fast becoming drained.
But if you'd only let me, I'd gladly take more,
I'd let your pain rot through to my core.
And yet try as I might, I can't steal your sorrow,
I can only wait to see what comes with tomorrow.
But before the last leaf falls from the tree,
Before the wind finally overtakes the lee,
I hope you can discover a place in your mind
Where you can finally rest and leave my corpse behind.
Dreams..Clawing the air while she sleepsDreams..7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Pulling at her hair in bundled heaps
Crying out while her dreams swallow her whole
Tearing with eyes closed while the dreams eat her soul
Crying when she wakes up
Real life just isn't enough
Begging her eyes not to close at night
Begging them to stay open and screaming with fright
When her eyes close she'll scratch at her skin
And when she awakes, the same sad songs she sings
Black tears crashing on the floor
Limbs and face just so sore
The face of her mother haunting the picture
Cry and lie and say that you don't miss her
Blood seeping from the surface of life
How could one ever get into so much strife?
Scratches lining her boned arms and legs
The face of her mother she'll never forget
Dreams are tearing at her well being
The regret is all that she's seeing...

My Prayer For You
I have endured adversity
I have survived atrocity
And so have you
This is my prayer for you…
That your wounds will be healed
That your spirit will be strengthened
And your mind will be made clear
I pray for you to find peace…
That you silence the racing questions
That you conquer the fleeting memories
And know you have done the right thing
I pray for your family and friends…
To stand by you
To admire you
And be inspired by you
I pray for you to say in your life…
Look what I have overcome
I am stronger for what I have endured
I am better than what has happened to me

My screams so silent, your smile so loud
I'd do anything to put a smile on that face
It wouldn't matter if I felt out of place
Because deep down I know
There's something you won't show
But I won't fall alone
We're in this together, right down to the bone
I know that you fall too
And it'll happen soon
We'll fall together into peace and cold
We'll be pale and happy, despite being old
Anything but perfect I am
You say you're full of flaws, but I can't see how you can
You're perfect in every way I can think
Not worthless like myself, throwing up in this sink
But it doesn't matter about me, I'll help you stand up tall
I'll wait for you and be there, to catch you when you fall
Silent pink lips so plain
How can they cause such pain?
Why do people long for things they can't have?
Don't worry about me, I can force a smile and pretend I'm not sad
I will catch you even if I can't catch myself
I will be there for you even though we both know I'm the one who n

I will face myself,
And let go.
I will forgive myself for what I've done.
I See the future,
That doesn't have me in it.
I face the past and know i did it.
I will find somewhere to belong,
and forgive what I've done.

Somewhere i will belong.

I see it in my family's eyes everyday.

The bigger problems,
The Kings and Queens of My life,
So i will walk away and aper another day,
To people that want to see me again,
But i have to find a place to Belong to.
I will find the place,
Where my mistakes are forgiven,
and I can care for peoples life without having them all di
I Am RestoredThe floor beneath me burns (Your presence around me)I Am Restored5 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
Coldly, searing my soul as it turns
Slowly, seeking what it has lost. (Everything is gone)
The dark walls surrounding me offer little solace from the pain
And i seek a way out. (An escape)
I rush towards the door and, opening it, i close my eyes (Against the bright)
Against the blinding light falling from the skies
A holy light, cleansing through fire.
My memories, writhing in agony
I painfully recount my experiences.
The cold around me, familiar
And your warm embrace, defending me
And i was removed (A world that never was)
And i was ruined. (A world that never should have been)
Wandering inside myself
Corroding, i stumbled towards my sanctuary (A world forgotten)
My world of light

Life is learning to speak with you mouth shut.
Life is learning how to defy gravity.
Life is walking through the drive through and running up the down escalator
Life is trying to laugh while crying and choking on tears
Life is laughing at everything, no matter how stupid
Life is expecting the unexpected
Life is horrible for a perfectionist
Life is public humiliation for the world to see
Life is a romantic comedy with a tragic yet predictable ending
Life is not fair is a redundant statement
Life is destroying the old reality and making your own
Life is faith
Life is fighting for what you believe in
Life is your own story, write it as you will
Life is the past and the past is the future
Life is preparing for the suicide self-inflected by living.
Life is saving the world even if its only in a video game.
Life is forgiving your worst enemy.

Half SureDon't tell me how I should face thisHalf Sure7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
You've never even been through the basics
Living life but slowly dying with blame
Dying without hope is never the same
Crying on the inside, dying on the out
I'll stay silent and I'll stand with a pout
I've found ways to avoid the crying
Even though you're all still sitting and sighing
Black shadows line my walls at night
I shiver without the same fright
My reasons for tears have changed
And I always wonder who should be blamed
Well you left me all alone
Sitting on a doorstep chilled to the bone
Singing silent poems and screaming sad rhymes
Nothing can compare to your killing crimes
Killing of hearts killing of smiles
I'm eyeing the poison inside these vials
Can't help but wonder if it will cure the pain
Can't help but wonder if I was ever sane
Can't help but feel as if the world is coming to an end
Can't help but feel as if my heart is one with no way to mend
With a sip of this and a fall to the floor
The problems will errace I'm only half sure
Impossible Rose PetalsLike the rose petals that fall from aboveImpossible Rose Petals7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Are the foundations that form our impossible love
Like the way your arms are wrapped around my waist
There are so many things that I wish I could say
And as my fingers trace your face
I'll be happy as long as I'm with you, I don't care about the place
The most beautiful eyes I've ever come across
With skin so lovely, with hair so soft
With your arms wrapped around me please don't ever let go
If you're ever going to leave me please let me know
I find it so hard...Not to tell you how I feel
But if I ever had the guts I'd know this place couldn't be real
Impossible feelings will never show on the surface
I'm sick of my spinning mind it's spins so fast like a circus
Rose petals so soft
Your hands trace the cross
That hangs from your neck
A reminder of a death
Something I helped you through
Times when I held you..
But as you hold me I wonder..
Why beauty is a word I find for this thunder
The rain pours outside
Your face you hide

They think they know
Buts it's my head
My conscience is my own
It's all okay now
But I'm waiting for the fall
I know how I tick
Just look at me
Take a glance at this
Go back a year
It's a reoccurring pattern
Small highs Hugh lows
They call it depression
My DayHow beautiful I wasMy Day4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
On that glorious day
I was dressed in my best
Not a hair out of place
Everyone I knew
Was gathered all around
And it was all for me
I hoped I made them proud
I was draped in pearls
And rubies galore
When they saw me
They were shaken to the core
There were tears all around
Not a dry eye in sight
That's when my coffin was closed
And everyone left feeling empty that night.

I nodded; I knew perfectly well our life's path. It was one of pain, both self inflicted and unexplainable. Why did it happen to me? I knew why. It was heredity, it wasn't my fault, I didn't put myself here. But I thought, I had always believed, that he had committed himself to this, and sometimes I hated him for it. He had been healthy, he had been normal but he gave it up. Sometimes I wanted to shake him and demand he give it to me. Give me your chance!

A small blade shimmered through the air and neatly sliced open the mans neck. A fountain of blood erupted from the deep cut, painting the floors, walls and anything else in the vicinity with the mass of flowing red liquid. As the man collapsed to the blood soaked carpet, a silhouetted figure landed next to him, the dark of the apartment betraying no features of the assassin. Another messy one. There was a noise as someone rattled the knob of the door.

That's how I feel. As if the world is crashing down around my head. As if my sanity is no longer strong enough to hold it all up. When did the world become liquid?
Did the world get stronger? Heavier? Did someone climb upon it and lend their weight? Did a whole bunch of people start jumping upon my load?
Did my sanity get weaker? Maybe the world became immune to its style? Did someone steal some of my foundation? Did a whole bunch of people rip my protection from around me?
Who added, who subtracted, who nullified?

As I walked into the kitchen I paused at the counter,rolling my neck and listening to the cracking of my bones. Man,that couldn't be healthy. Caitlin was at the counter with panadol tablets in her hands. She swallowed two. "You sick?" I waited for her answer. "Headache. Man, I havn't had panadol in so long. It tastes like nothing with a hit of punch in the face." She exclaimed, nodding her head. I giggled,pulling her into a hug. She frowned. "Neeeeeee,get off." She pouted. I sighed,rolling my eyes. "Caitlin,I don't know how you're ever going to keep a sustained relationship with someone if you can't even hug them."
