A Snowy Winter's SonnetA Snowy Winter's Sonnet7 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Snowflakes slowly fell onto frozen ground
As the scenery turned into pure white
And snow decorated the scene without sound
Transforming land into a winter sight
Rooftops decked with glistening ice crystals
As wind blew, sending snow flying in air
Morning arrived with the sound of bird calls
As little kids rushed down stairs without care
Just to go outside to play in the snow
Sledding down the hill, building large snowman,
Having snowball fights outside in the cold
Adults shoveled snow and kids gave them a hand
For winter is here, let's give out a cheer
Enjoy the snow for now, for spring is near
To The Shoe-Box Under The BedDearest shoe-box under my bed-To The Shoe-Box Under The Bed1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
White one, with flowers pink and red-
Lately, you've been dwelling in my head.
Dearest shoe-box filled with baubles,
It's true; your top still wobbles.
You're too full of memories and squabbles.
Dearest shoe-box of worn-out thoughts,
Let me open you up, re-connect the dots.
I'm sick of letting the memories rot.
Dearest shoe-box with a blanket inside,
Look at all the trinkets those folds can hide!
There's the photo I always kept at my side.
Dearest shoe-box with secrets old and worn,
I think it's time to mend my heart, still broken and torn.
It's time to let go of the hurt and scorn.

Promienie światła wpadały przez uchylone okno, rozpraszając mrok w jakim pogrążona była mała sypialnia. Przesuwały się leniwie po błękitnej ścianie i sosnowych, prosto wykonanych meblach, wraz z upływem czasu docierając coraz bliżej dwuosobowego łóżka. Wspięły się po zagłówku i opadły na białą poduszkę, na której leżała moja głowa. Skrzywiłem się lekko i z niechęcią otworzy

Her presense, that of an Angel. Her voice, a guiding light.
In everything she does she would try her best. Never giving up and hardworking.
Virtue above all else, supportive to the end. Understanding and forgiving.
Vivid and outstanding, she is exceptional in every way.
Youthful for eternity, Neither her grace or her charm will ever fade.

If this is how it ends, I'd have no regrets...so I said.
I'll remember all the memories we had, you and I...be it sad or happy, I don't want to forget.
In our little spot, with a bench and a swing...we'd always be there, under the Sun smiling.
Hey, do you remember all this? Why are you saying it's raining? It's a bright sunny day!
I understand how you feel.. through that look on your face, and I know you understand mine.
Is it raining? I'm starting to feel it too, under this grand tree we take shelter under.
I wonder if we'll stay like this, or will we lose each

Let me die
If that is what it takes
For you to fly
I can then smile
As you rise to new height's
Watching as you soar
And finally take flight
I don't like hurting you
Or seeing you in tears
It pains me to see it
And raises all my fear's
But all I can do
Is sit here and weep
The silent tears
That I alone keep
I wish I could turn
Time back to before
I hurt you so bad
After trying to close that door
But my heart has never stopped
Shedding tears for what I have done
Tear's that flow for you
My rising sun.

That they can see right through
Every mask I try to wear
Or anything I try to do
But what most don't realize
Is how much I keep deep down
Suppressing all that hurt's
Not letting it make a sound
I don't let anyone close
Not truly anyway
I keep them all at arm's length
And still I hope they will stay
It is not fair of me
It is not even right
For me to ask those around
To care when I hold such spite
I want to let people in
I want to feel them close
But where do I begin
I don't even know
All I know is how to hide
From everything that I feel
I think that in the shadows
Nothing that seeks me is real

It takes a pessimist to ignore his life,

Then comes the optimist, who knows all is well,

you become deprived of your lucid home--

All in your head and all in your brain;
it's one of those things that'll drive you insane.)

ScreamingYou don't have to have a reason to scream.Screaming1 year ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
We realize this in the most inconvenient of times,
when anything becomes nothing
and anything is possible.
You don't have to have a reason to scream.
If you want to look sane, sure,
but who wants that anymore?
She caught her interest, many a time before,
the way she spoke,

The way was was--

You don't have to have a reason to scream.
You just have to have a feeling,
which can be a reason.
But only animals put words to emotions,

Thanks for killing me.The night I died was a terrible night,Thanks for killing me.1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I didn't sleep well, and I couldn't sleep right
I tossed and turned and fell into thought,
I fell into regret and my heart grew taught
I would've said words to you, if I were alive.
I'm sure I'd thank you, if I didn't die
It really could've been a great display,
with words full of emotion and friendship's bouquet
If I hadn't have died, if I were not dead,
I'm sure maybe you'd feel right in the head
I'm sure that if you wouldn't leave me alone,
you'd see me as human and not a gravestone
You'd see me as a person with thoughts and a mind,
with feelings and emotions and a little more time

and we watch her sink down

like a weight in the water;
we watch her fall,
like a leaf from the trees
and we do nothing but hold each other,
hold each other in fear
that maybe this rang a truth
that we never wanted to hear
we watch her die,
shriveling up slowly
we almost don't notice
and the moment we turn our backs...

He's got a plague

It started a short while

my mind still dead,
my life still withdrawn
It was hard to deal,
it was hard to breathe,
then he came 'long,
and on life--we teethe
We stood alone, but
not far apart, he
had his miles
had my old heart
The innocent died
within his changed grasp,
insanity set in,
his life hadn't last
I died that night,
and a few times again,
waiting his return,

I can execute it as soon as I can
I've got a mind and I've got a heart,
both are destroyed, and it's far from art
I've got news and I've got shame,
sometimes "you" is all you can blame
I've got a dream and I'll leave on a whim,
even though my eyes are filled to the brim
I've got a smile, and I've got a frown.
I've shown you both--neither of them sound
I've got a life and I want it gone,
I guess I won't have to wait very long.

If I'm going to be anything more than average, if anyone is going to remember me, then I need to go further, in art, in life, in everything! -Salvador Dalí
A calm, still night has befallen ears that bleed for patriotism,
on those that whistle for the birds that have stopped, on those
who scream for something they never had but dream of when
they do, like the ghostlimbs of freedom, love, reality. The
breathless surprise of an idea still rings and rings, dings, bangs,
and even gongs true when the right people raise their voices to
the truest reality of all, life.

My body feels weak,
My feelings going numb.
All I have is a constant weep.
I can't even let out a happy hum.
I wish things had gone different.
I wish I didn't fall.
This darkness I'm in is indifferent
It runs me into a wall.
I need a light,
someone who's there for me.
I need someone bright
someone I can see.
They will be my light in this darkness.
they will be my hope.
They will help me clean this mess
and get out if this constant mope.
