Willing PreyWilling Prey11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Why do I love,
Your vacant eyes,
Which give nothing away?
I search to find,
Your smooth disguise,
But nothing will they say.
Why do I love,
Your deadly kiss,
With touch so pale and chilled?
It lingers on,
My trembling lips,
Until my senses are stilled.
Why do I love,
Your vampiric bite,
The drunken blissful pain?
The two new scars,
They tell the tale,
Of when my heart was drained.
Why do I love,
Your childish lusts,
Deranged with my appeal?
In touching me,
It sets you free,
I make your world surreal.
But most of all,
I love the voice,
That tells me stay away.
The warning that,
I do not heed,
Makes me the willing prey.
Looking Into Your EyesIt's like finding a connection into my own heart,Looking Into Your Eyes4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
To gaze into the beautiful of something that could one day feel terrible,
Trust in that you won't look away,
At least not before your heart slips from mine.
And I wish for it to never slip from mine,
Because the only music I long to hear are your whispers in my ears,
The only promises of happiness I need,
And perhaps a little more taste of your soft soft lips.
I love you, incredibly,
And hope you feel the same indefinitely,
Because I feel I want you so much you could not possibly imagine,
And love you in a way where no part of my heart could be left hidden.

Soft green light
Big strong hands
The room is fuming
Dreaming for weeks
Big thick haze
But who ?
Breathing, escaping, releasing, relating, adrenaline, sugar and sweat
Rhythm and gripping, gyrating and slipping, connected, addicted and wet.
A feeling, an instinct, a conquer, a killing, an outburst, a shout and a sigh
A climax, a coaster, the ground nearing closer, the end of the ride.....satisfied.
Who did it ?
Soft green light
The Morning PoemThe Morning Poem9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is morning when the world wakes up and nothing more than that ?
Or is it just a fresh new chance each day to worry if im fat ?
A starting point for something new on each day's welcome mat ?
...The brand new game's bullpen ...from which i'll be asked to bat ?
Wiping sleep from eyes i realized... it's time that i was fed
and as i moved more questions popped into the old brain shed.
...Just a time to compile fact and stat for each arduous day ahead ?...
( When all i ever really want is to crawl back into bed )
And then...i had a strange thought while picking out my cereal
Like maybe it's a magic time ..and something that is mysterial ? <i>
Because I Miss YouI fell asleep last night with your letters by my side.Because I Miss You5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
There must have been a hundred pages,
Scented with the love I've been dreaming of every day.
So it is true that I read all of them before sleep sometimes,
Just once in a little while,
Slowly like the way I long to caress your lips.
And the softness of your touch haunts my every dream,
Like this longing I have of you,
Burning ever so precariously in this moment of my heart.

Now's a time where nothing can change
We're young forever
In love forever
Now is the time of our lives.
Where all we can do is live
We're never gonna die
This moment will never end.
I'm with my beautiful friends,
And I'm in love with them all!
This is now
This is forever
Top of the world for eternity
Our legacy is now.
It'll never end
We own time right now:
We own the world.
It'll never end
we're young and invincible
it'll never end.
No one knows like we do how to live life
No one knows like we do how to see light
For us, there's no such thing as end to this night
What does time really mean anyway?
Always, oh, always partying on
Always singing cause nothing is wrong
Always laughing, friends forever, livin' life
It'll never end
What are those?
I've never heard of tears before
I'm with those whom I love
Always will be
What are you talking about?
I only know bliss
I only know laughter
I only know them.
Forever and after.

A Bitter EndingA Bitter Ending10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Better left unsaid,
Better left undone,
And so the emptiness fills;
Then you see me cry.
You've given me a reason
A reason to deny
A reason to be happy
A reason to be sad
Yet despite all the odds,
It was love that I found;
Love that was lost forever,
Love that is eager to grow...
Is this how it all ends?
Will it be the same way again?
How could we ever realize
If we won't keep on trying?
For all those years I've spent,
Imprisoned by those unending dreams,
I say I've become a lot,
Better than what I thought I could be.
But there lies the fear and doubt;
The fear to be hurt by the truth,
And the doubt to love wrongly.
And so I close my eyes...
Yet at the back of my mind
I turn everything aside to wake up,
To wake up from this fantasy
And to let things grow up.
As I write these words of sadness,
I start to realize some things in life;
That we just don't live by the second of our thoughts,
But we live to satisfy what we yearn for.
Sometimes, what we see doesn't make us happy,
It's what we

With words so razor sharp.
I'm nothing but a silhouette,
You've hollowed out my heart.
I hate that I ever let you get,
This close right from the start.
You charmed me with your endless wit,
You seamlessly played your part.
You are not the man that I first met,
My loving counterpart.
You are everything that I regret,
You've torn my dreams apart.
But even still, I must admit,
Your games are state of the art.
You managed to, if just for a bit,
Take what was left of my heart.

Sam twisted the doorknob to the semi-decent motel room and was immediately met with an unexpected punch to the face. He fumbled backward into the room as Dean shoved him.
"You said three days!" His nose and cheeks were already pink from the winter air, but his face continued to glow brighter as he stood demandingly in front of his younger brother.
"Dean I -" He started to explain himself while poking at his now bleeding lip, but Dean was fuming.
"Dammit, Sam! It's been A MONTH!"
"I know, Dean. And I'm sorry."
"Sorry? You're SORRY?" Dean's hands immediately flew to the top of his head and clutched his hair tightly. He thought that if he could keep the rage at bay long enough he wouldn't beat Sam to a bloody pulp. He took a deep uneven breath.

Five toes on my feet,
Five represents what I am,
The pentagram of my life.
You don't know what you've got 'till it's gone.
What's wrong with closing our eyes,
Crossing our fingers and daring?
I must think for awhile,
But then it's too late.
Too late for me to change.
I've taken two steps,
But I can't take a third,
I'm afraid I'll show my true intentions.
To put myself out there,
Is to gain oh so much,
But to lose so much more.
I must think about it,
Until the opportunity is gone.
Have my dreams passed me by...
Quick the DonkeyQuick the Donkey9 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
The donkey's name was Quick.
His front hooves were neat and dexterous and opposable, and his back hooves were the size of dinner plates and had unassuming steel shoes. He had a pale grey hide and pale pink nostrils, and ears like enormous fringed fans, and if you lifted up his cowl far enough, you would find large, slightly worried brown eyes, with the devastatingly long eyelashes reserved for beauty queens and large ungulates. He was a small, neat-footed donkey who kept his elbows tucked in and could vanish into a crowd much more easily than a bipedal donkey wearing a yellow robe with checkerboard edging had any right to do.
He had a goldfish in a plastic bag. She was a small, neat-finned goldfish with kinder eyes than are usual among fish. Quick was only guessing about the "she" pronoun. He wasn't sure how to tell the difference, or if it mattered one way or the other. Well, it probably mattered to another goldfish. He wasn't sure if the kindness of the goldfish's eyes was really the

But crying skies cannot wash away fears
She called all her friends, wept into her phone
But words of comfort help no more than tears
She curled up in the darkest corner for sleep
But always nightmares invaded her dreams
She cut into her wrist hoping for death
But no amount of blood drowns out the screams
She fell down to her knees and begged to God
But silence smothered her hopes and prayers
She overdosed on a drug until breathing stopped
But woke in hell trapped by demons' snares

A smile upon my face,
Yet deep below
I scream with hate.
My hope is gone,
My tears used up.
My body trembles,
fighting the pain,
yet it's my heart that hurts the most.
Blood flows like a stream
a Wave of despair,
My wings have been clipped
so I can not longer fly.
So why should I try?
If to live,
is to die?

Katie bangs at the door, at that moment, I'm completely dumbfounded. My knees were shaking from not eating all day, my blood sugar levels were probably very low. I grab the size zero jeans and step out.
" Yeah, Let's pay."
She nods and pulls me to a massive line leading up to the check out counter, as my eyes scan the people standing in front of us, I process what I was about to do. Lie number 15, and I only started hanging out with Katie and her group of friends two weeks ago. Why did I do this to myself? I was already holding a extra small sized corset, size zero jeans and a pair of ridiculously high stilettos that were a extravagant indigo. I focus my attention on the busty, dark skinned, girl sta

As I sit here alone, crying in vain,
I gaze for hours in the mirror and despise everything I see,
I just cannot stand that fat girl staring back at me,
My body is brittle, my bones are weak,
My teeth are rotted; causing me to feel ashamed when I speak,
I pitch at the unwanted flesh along my side,
God how I wish it would just go away or hide!
They tell that what I am doing is wrong,
That is not the answer the problems I've been enduring for so long,
But I don't believe them, they're all full of lies,
And that's why I've said all my goodbyes,
Whatever they tell me I won't listen or care,
Because all I need to do is lose three more pounds and I'll be there,
I'll reach the goal that I've been aiming for for the past few years,
I cannot stop now just because I have a few tears,
I reach for the bathroom to throw up my last meal,
But suddenly I collapse, my limbs I can no longer feel!
I'm screaming out for someone to hear,
But it's no use,
Tears and RaindropsWhen Tears and Raindrops CollideTears and Raindrops6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It is a solemn night and no one is awake but you
Its not their fault, do not blame them
They tried everything they could to help you out and you pushed them away
By they, I mean we, and we were there
We are the people whose shoulders can be cried on
We listened, but did you?
And now youre alone in the darkness of the outside world
Secretly, we are crying the tears that you could not
The clouds become grayer and the rainstorm begins
If you happen to go out in that rainstorm, look for us
Were there and your tears are streaming down our faces
We could have stopped caring, but that would make us heartless
We tried not to cry and were sorry
Our eyes refused to hold back your tears
When tears and raindrops collide
RiskyYou forgot how much she used to care. It's been too long-- too long to remember her secrets or remember the way her eyes lit up when she told them. It's true-- the truth really does set you free, and it's been too long for her to remember what freedom tastes like. She's too afraid to remember that. She's too afraid to remember anything, and that's the problem.Risky4 years ago in Emotional More Like This
She's got empty glass-green eyes and an empty heart and an empty smile, and you haven't known what to make of it.
So you didn't even try.
You didn't try and you won't try and it's just too bad because she really does need saving. And no matter how many times you lie to yourself, you really do care. You care too much to fail her-- but you've failed at saving yourself. So how are you supposed to pretend you'll succeed at helping her?
Because you won't. And you're afraid to care.
She's too important to risk losing.
