faces of loveLove is painfaces of love6 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 Sound6 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

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
LOVE, IT'S LOVELove, It's Love, Oh Love, True Love, Precious Love!LOVE, IT'S LOVE5 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 CUPID5 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

The girl was graced with angelic beauty,
A halo of gold silk and wide blue eyes.
But it made her snide, it made her snooty;
Life was a contest and she was the prize.
Young travelers came from across the land,
Offering gifts of most divine nature.
She truly had them under her command,
Yet she still was as cold as a glacier.
One spring day, a man appeared at her door.
He was tired, he was visibly weak.
To that girl, the weary man was a bore,
And moved on to a man with fine physique.
He refused to relent, and the next day,
He gave her a package, tied up with string.
She laughed in his face, for that was her way,
Saying "I care not for the things you bring."
The man saw what others refused to see;
Ugliness was found deep within her heart.
So a curse was placed, under the oak tree,
An old spell that made her beauty depart.
And then her body matched her horrid soul,
A vision that made men run to the hills.
But she did not hide; she went for a stroll;
The terrified faces gave her some th

Hands crawling over your skin, you can't take this another night
It's the same horrible dream that grips you so tight
Without emotions time is still ticking, how can you win this fight?
Bend down to whisper in your ear that you won't make it out this time
You're running down the longest road that always curves, but you know it's the same old line
Take my hand if you believe
That one day the sun will sleep
Take my hand if you're not afraid
And I'll take you to a better place
So close your eyes
Just for tonight
Lying so repetitively to you
You don't know that I do the things I do
I've told you that you can leave when you want to but I lied
If you wanted to go back to a safer place I'd say access denied
I can't afford to lose the only thing I have
Look at me, I'm so withered and old, so crushed and sad
You're the sweetest prisoner, you've got the warmest lips
You taste like sugar and fear, you're the greatest hit
You can't hide the truth
The fear tha

I Am Under Your Love SpellI have never had such thoughts before,I Am Under Your Love Spell5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I am lost in you, whom I adore;
And yet there's so much more,
This closeness that I have never felt before.
The sight of you fill me with pleasure,
Like a spotlight that shines on a glorious treasure;
You makes me feel so weak,
And gives me goose bumps whenever you speak;
You make my body sizzle with your kisses,
My heart is kindled, too; It knows what bliss is;
For the fire that rages at the touch of your skin,
Make my heart pounds for you way deep within.
My heart start racing and I am trembling inside,
So much love for you I am trying to hide;
I just think of you and I am filled with dreams,
To keep your love fills all my schemes.
With you, there's nothing to resist,
You are irresistible to me!
So, beware of the power you exert over me,
For I am under your spell; that's clear as can be.
Soup or Salad?Soup or Salad?Soup or Salad?5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Every day I go to work
And repeat the same routine.
I edit the columns
Of the weekly discoveries
In the well-known TIME magazine.
Afterwards, Id make my way home
And find a place to eat.
Its always the same place,
I always stuff my face
At Johns Potatoes and Meat.
The waitress would ask,
Are you ready to order?
I already had an answer for her.
Id ask, Todays special deal?
Johns Big Meat Meal,
Would you like it? I would say, Sure.
She would ask, Soup or Salad?
That question is valid
Yet, the answer is always the same.
Id like the soup, Id say right away,
I have the soup every day.
I would read the paper
As Id wait for my plate,
And check the results of the game.
Not a surprise,
The result is always the same.
When home Id watch TV,
A stupid comedy.
Id turn it off when all was done.
Dreams..Clawing the air while she sleepsDreams..6 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...

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.

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 have an explanation,
But I know you don't care to hear it,
Since it didn't take enough contemplation.
I just hate you.
I have lots of excuses.
But I know you won't listen to them,
Since, for you, they have no uses.
I just detest you.
I have plenty of things I'd like to say,
But I know my words are worthless to you,
Since you never give me the time of day.
I just despise you.
I wish I could tell you all these things,
But I know it's not important to you,
Since strife is all it will bring.

You are the best thing that ever happened to me,
I could not imagine my life without you
I want to spend the rest of my life with you;
I love each and every moment I share with you
I never thought that I would meet someone as special as you,
I want to lie next to you and fall asleep in your arms
I will love you no matter what life brings us;
You have been my comforter through all my sorrow
So, I want to share in your joys and sorrows,
I want to tell you that the love I have for you is undying
It is a love that is strong and enduring;
Every day I wake up thanking God for you
You are my soul mate, and I vow to love you..

I feel like I have been torn apart. . . I am broken at the seams,
So, show me how to live again when you are not here with me
Show me how to fight the fact that we are not meant to be;
I know that I still think of you, do you still think of me?
It seems we had it all and more; then why did you leave me?
And teach me to stop caring when I think of what we were
Teach me to stop crying when I see you are not there ;
I stand by my dark window it seems the night is so quiet
Was I just living in a dream? was nothing really right?
Tell me that I will be alright and my life will be okay
Don't let this heartbreak last. . . let these teardrops wash away;
I wake up to a quiet morning the silence fills my heart
You know that I am fragile; do you know I am torn apart?
Teach me how to forget all our memories and avoiding photographs
Teach me spending each and every day with happiness and laughs;
I close my eyes so gently as if I am afr
Love So TrueAs I was thinking, as I often doLove So True4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The subject turned to love and I start thinking of you
Do you know how I feel?
As if my heart was just ripped out
I thought our love was real
But, now I don't know what it's all about
I thought to myself, this isn't how it's meant to be
I thought I was for you and you were for me
You are not who I once used to know
Where did you put him? Where did he go?
You may seem surprised I have moved on
But I finally realize you're long gone...
The days have gone by- it would almost be a year.
But no longer can I call you "my dear".
So I choose now to give it all up and set my heart free
Although I will always have memories of you and me...
And no matter how much I want to, this feeling won't go away
Cause my love is still very true and in my heart you'll forever stay.

And your name is written on a special place in my heart;
The way we love each other makes it hard to be apart,
So, when I can't hold you in my arms, I hold you in my heart.
Please never doubt my love what is shared between you and me
Cause I am here to hold you, you just wait and see;
But for now, I have to be patient and except our destiny
But I promise you this my darling you are forever within me.
You are my everything in the good times and my rock in times of sorrow,
You are the reason for sweet yesterdays and my promise for tomorrow;
My love for you is deep and true no matter where you go or what you do,
Till the day I die my love will always stay true to you;
I need nothing more from you than this - to know that you will always be mine
And the promise of your love in my life - until the end of time.
I Am RestoredThe floor beneath me burns (Your presence around me)I Am Restored4 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

My laugh rings in your ears
Don't you know how?
I've swept away all my fears
And I'm smiling, despite the bad in this world
I lie alone hugging myself, all curled
But I'm not crying, I'm just fine
I guess I'm happy, and that's the bottom line
You held me tight but now it's time to let go
I have to wonder this earth alone
And discover why I was put here
I'm trembling with excitement and fear
In such a big big world where anything could go wrong
With a smile and a tear I'll wave to you, so long
You nurtured me through the bad
Don't cry,you should be glad
I'm just fine and I'm ready to fly solo
I'm smiling,still worried about you though
Don't you cry
You can call me any time
A hug goodbye
I promise I'll be fine
And if you ever think about the bad and ugly future in your mind
Promise me you'll call me, thing will be fine 'cause I'm one of a kind
I'm like a bird who was once injured, needed time to heal
But now I can fly again and things seem so real
Because I'm smiling.

I always wondered from the start
Why you wouldn't give it to me
But I guess it just wasn't meant to be
But hey, I know where mine is, it's right inside my chest
You dropped it on the floor and you let it shatter, trying to put my love to rest
But it's almost back to the shape it was, it's in the process of healing
You shouldn't go running around doing what you do, you shouldn't go stealing
The heart of a girl like me who only wanted to be with you forever
She dreamt about you every night, dreaming you guys would be forever
But hey, I tell you, she learnt her lesson, her heart's still healing
She's figured some things out but she's still dealing
With the slight pain
She'll never ever be the same
But she used to wish..If only they knew
My feelings for you
But thing change
And yeah, she's better these days
But she can't help but feel a little left out
Can't help but giggle and smile at you with a little pout
She's just grateful that you're in her life
Helping her deal
