Twas the Duel Before Xmas 2Twas The Rematch Before ChristmasTwas the Duel Before Xmas 25 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Twas a few days 'fore Christmas
And all through this year
Things had calmed down
Or so it appeared
My dueling had slowed
My deck was all dusty
I hadnt played in months
So I felt a bit rusty.
But that was ok
It was going to be fine
For all those illusions
Were all in my mind
The Santa, the bunny
The midget and all
Were all taken care of
With a single phone call
Three months of therapy
My mother did order
Borderlined she called me
Then crossing the border
I tried to explain
I had tried to protest
I tried to rationalize
My dueling contests
I had saved Christmas
Saved for us all
Twas the Duel Before EasterTwas the Duel Before EasterTwas the Duel Before Easter5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Twas the Sunday of Easter
And all through the city
All the girls and the boys
Were dressed up all pretty.
All dapper and handsome
All pampered and pressed
I too was pimped out
In the clothes which I dressed
Shiney shoes, shiney buttons
Shiney cufflinks and more
I was blinging all over
From head to the floor.
When all of a sudden
I heard a loud thump
It was outside the door
It made my heart jump
A tapping came after
A knocking most persistant
I hurried to the door
I couldnt resist it.
When just as I thought
And this may sound funny
But there in my door
Stood the Easter Bunny

I wanna tell you what I'm feeling,
But I don't know how to start,
Ive would tell everything, but
I'm afraid that you might break my heart.
I practice all the things that I would say,
I tell myself today would be the day,
But every time, I lose my nerve.
Why should this ever,
Be so hard to do!
I look at you, you look away.
Why do you turn away?
Are you afraid like me?
Can't you see
I love you!
SmilesSmiles8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Soothing dreams of evening passed
With rain pouring in my hair
To bring a smile to my face
The only one in ages
I see you in front of me
With that concealing smile
Covering love or hate
Which one, I do not know
I can't read you
I never could
All I can see is an empty smile
Misdirected, or misinterpreted
Crooked little smiles
That carry the burden of lies
Wish on a StarWish on a Star8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A star-filled sky,
And darkness smiles down on me.
An eternity of stars,
I'm hoping are the number of reasons that I
Managed to catch your eye.
My stars are beautiful,
But completely useless to me now.
When I don't have to keep wishing
That someday, you'll be around.
Since that day's come right now.
Pieces of me still wonder,
What I'd wish for if given the chance.
When wishes seem pointless,
With you as my newest romance.
I guess my wish came true, for a second glance
But maybe if I could
I'd wish for the strength
To be able to look you in the eye.
Because what if I do,
And the reflection I find

Each ripple of a silver blade
Pressed closer and closer to my veins.
Trying to find it's way home
Just like me, but it's not alone.
White knuckles holding on to a knife
Releasing the hold they have on my life.
Salted tears falling down my face
Find themselves a resting place
Where they burn into my sliced-up skin
All of this, a testimony to the pain within.
Scissors dragged through my arm,
But I'll be dead before it ever scars.
A swiss army knife leaves a kiss
In many places, on each of my wrists.
I stare down the barrel of my mother's gun
Knowing this is a battle, no one's ever won.
I'll apologize for not doing anything right
Tears of AcidTears of Acid8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A bitter street that is my life
A hollow shell that is my heart
The innocent are damned
To the pain of loneliness
The questions of regret
Haunted by why's
Tortured by lingering on shame
Peel away the shell of hate
Carve at the pain until it's gone
Tear away the lies you tell yourself
And just live for life
Tell me one more time
Except tell me what I want to hear
This time should be different
I deserve that
Let them fall away from me
Wander to their lonely streets
The empty space that is their home
That tears away at the smile
Broken tears that eat away
Like acid against my skin
Burning what I've come to be
Granting a sca

When everywhere I turn there's just another memory
And they only make me want to say sorry.
Funny how I laugh it off and pull out another smile,
Cause I think of you and I know you were worthwhile.
Already I've forgotten why I felt liking walking away,
When you were the sunshine lighting up my day.
And it had been so long since someone held me
But you weren't afraid to fight off each tear.
So now I'm sorry that you felt like you had to lie
When you were the reason I always tried to smile.
With you, my poetry seemed to turn out weak
But why write a fantasy when you were real?
I can remeber picking up the phone
And telling you tha

You crossed my mind today
Close to midnight, when anything will feel surreal
Nearly 3 months later, still the only one i want to feel
I hear you crying in the back of my mind
Thought maybe i was going insane
Try to still my heart and settle back to hear the rain
Watching dark clouds pass me by with
Sweet raindrops that appear to be falling apart
Just like the shredded pieces of my heart
With words stuck between it's clumsy beatings
I wonder what you'd think if i told you what i thought
If only i knew what to think, if my mind wasn't quite as overwraught
How i feel like i'm losing all hope
And i die to hear your heartbeat, with yo

If I could turn back time, I'd wipe the frown off your face
If I could fly, I'd take you under my wing and show you everything
If I could find a way to fix that broken smile, I will
If I could find you now, things would be back to normal
If I could grant you wishes, your hearts desire would be fulfilled
If I could find the courage to speak to you again, you'd know the truth
If I could hold you one last time, I'd never let go
And if I saw that everything would turn out this way,
I would have never walked out that door, into the ni

My eyes can't see,
My ears, can't hear,
All because you are not near.
My nose can't smell,
My mouth can't taste,
Because i spoke with too much haste.
My feelings grew deep,
As my eyes weep.
What a waste.
My feelings for you,
They grew and grew.
Until one day,
They will go away.

Twas the duel on the fourth
and all through the burbs
whistles and snaps and pops
could be heard.
The night air was warm
and smelled of gun powder
The smoke billowed up
It grew by the hour
I stood there that day
all decked out with ammo
Fire crackers galore
And painted in camo.
My friends all hid
and ran for the door
no one wanted to fight
in my firecracker war
So I stood there alone
in my GI Joe look
When I heard a loud BOOM!
So loud the ground shook.
I turned real fast
to the sounds source
And came face to face
With Uncle Sam of course.

Twas the weekend of St. Patricks
And all through the town
All the men and the women
Were gettin to down
All were enjoying
Their lagers and wine
All, that is, save three
Me, myself, and I
I was too busy
Wondering how things had occured
And thinking last Christmas
Was truly absurd.
I figured it was something
Maybe something I ate
To make me see the things
That I know truly aint.
So there I was playing
Just minding my own
When suddenly I heard
A knock and a groan.
Please Hurry a voice said
AND OPEN THE DOOR!
I did as instructed
And nearly was floore

I always kinda hoped you wouldn't leave,
Just like I almost wish you really loved me.
Can't we stop pretending now?
Everytime I try to breathe it's like I cough up more blood.
And the tears I can't stop crying are enough to cause a flood.
I'm so sick of wishing you were still around.
Aren't I pretty when I force a smile just for you?
You're standing right beside me but it's like you don't seem to care.
I'll try to hold your hand, I'll call your name out. Are you even there?
We can take a walk; you know the place, but don't remember the view.
It's getting dark and I search my mind for something to say.

My Heart Falls to PiecesMy Heart Falls to Pieces8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Doomed to a destiny of distrust
Forever lost in a sea of what once was
Another heart broken, like before
This time, words can mend no more,
Shallow comments, wordless tears,
Our thoughts lead to a common fear,
The truth this time cannot be denied,
This pain so overwhelming we cannot hide,
Forever has ended this sad day,
but the memories of the past are here to stay,
Never forgotten will be your love,
Like a treasured angel from above,
Feeling like I've taken a flying leap,
This hurt, a wound, running true and deep
your absence growing day by day
Every chance, I glance your way
Your pain bottled in your eyes,
I watch you look

You told me how you loved the rain
So now my world's flooded with pain.
I must have been insane
For me to believe, you loved me once again.
I waited on your doorstep
You told me no one else was a threat.
And I listened, although not one of your promises has been kept.
Trading a piece of my heart at a time, until there was nothing left.
Raindrops start to fall again on my face.
Reality slaps me back in my place,
When you easily find a way to replace.
All this time spent with you, turned out to be a waste.
It's like watching storm clouds gather, watching the truth unfold.
Why was I the last one to be told?

For you to stay.
You have made me happy
You also made me sad
But being with you were
The best days that i ever had
You mean the world to me
Oh why can't you see
I will take you to a place
Where we can be free
To have you back in my life

If you were here with me
I would have all i ever needed
So please don't hurt this

Fight for what you think

He used to think about her all the time
But this beautiful girl won't let him call her his
I bet you never thought things could end up like this
There are those who say this was meant to be
What a fool she's acting like for believing lies he fed her
She's so bright but so desperate to relive what they were
And now she sits alone in her room and cries
So numb to the weight of a hand on her shoulder
When all she really wants is for him to come and hold her
They want to know why she thinks he's worth so much
A little boy blind to the mascara running down her cheek
Blind that every little touch to her makes her knees go weak

You call me ugly,

You kick me out of the way,
You hold me really tight.
You scream and yell, bitching at me to fuck off,
You cry my name in your sleep.
You hate me being around,
You don't know what you'd do if I wasn't there.
You never think about me,
You always tell your friends what I said last night.
You never tell me what's wrong,
You always come crying to me.
You wish I'd just leave you alone,
You love how I make you smile.
You ignore me, and pretend I don't exist,
You talk to me every day.

I think about you,
I wonder to myself,
"Is he thinking about me?
Does he even remember I exist at this moment in time?
If he's about to do something stupid, does he remember I care?"
I dream about you,
I can only imagine how warm yours hugs really are.
How tender your lips are in a careful kiss,
What your hair smells like…
Those kinds of things.
After many fantasies fly away,
Something inside me clicks off.
I think it's the heater.
I don't care what people have to say,
I just glare and go away from them mentaly.
I wish I could disappear.
