Friendships is a valuable bond,
To break it means death.
You leave the others world
To become a stranger of formalities.
Although alive to the world,
Through writing or words you chose to die
The moment I read your words,
Was the moment you passed away through my eyes.
Goodbye you told me twice
What friends would never do,
Too much pride to allow you,
To ever change your mind
and live again
A friend of yours I am no more,
A friend of mine you are
To me, your death was painfully slow
You hardly felt a thing
Looking deep into the eyes of strangers
Confused, running past the crowd
As nowhere do I see
The kindness and knowing I recognize.
Looking into the coffin,
Your glassy eyes stare back
I close them for the last time
As you chose to leave the world of the living.
I place your picture on your box
Under the engraving of your name
Following your funeral
To your grave.
At the final farewell
I shed a tear
I was your friend
Just in case you doIll have to compromise,Just in case you do6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I prefer cute,
But sure, attractive.
It felt so good,
But a compromise is hardly heartfelt;
Cute fairly neutral.
But for a first,
To be open,
It feels more special,
Than it can ever be.
Curiosity gets flattering,
Captures the heart,
At the price of respect.
Yet other men walk the earth,
And once you shall realize
You mean more to some
Sometimes you are seen as more
He looked at me,
He didnt call me cute,
He never uttered that word.
Instead he said youre beautiful
To me made all the difference
Sometimes one will say,
I will pretend to be blind,
for eternity if I must
because you chose this.
of course, if thats ur wish
Ill make it possibile.
you shouldnt go alone,
it might be dangerous.
And you know he will be there
If you need him.

The view from up there is breathtaking.
FrozenHe stood completely still as he watched me walking slowly toward him. His eyes wide with fear and fascination, like a small bird watching a snake glide towards it. Not daring to move. I could see that he had stopped fighting with himself and had made his decision to stay. Not that his decision mattered. His body had made the decision at the start of the night.Frozen8 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
His eyes widened as I drew closer and still he had not moved an inch. I could see the emotions playing across his face, just like the rest of them, and knew exactly what he was thinking. His unconscious mind knew there was something dangerous about me, something to be feared, but his conscious mind, his logical mind, refused to believe that anything or anyone as beautiful as me could be dangerous. Once again I felt pity for the human race, felt sorrow for the simple fact that they could not protect themselves from predators of the mind and heart. Ancient predators that could and would play them like puppets.

Happy Mothers DayI lay in bed listening to the sounds of the raindrops hitting the window pane. I rolled over and checked the time on my bedside table. It read 8:15. It was safe to get up. I climbed out of bed and padded softly across the room to the bathroom. After splashing my face with cold water I decided to go downstairs and start on breakfast. But not mine. Definitely not mine. My stomach rumbled with the thought of breakfast and I realised I hadnt eaten last night. But there was no time for that now.

No move I ever make,

every simple thing I say,

I'm sorry I'm not perfect,

What makes you the one person that matters?
What makes your smile the most precious one?
Your words worth a fortune?
Your existence the thing keeping me awake at night?
I simply adore you,
Heart, spirit, and soul.
I miss you though we never met,
I miss you because you are gone.
Please come back and kiss me,
Give me my promised hug.
Bless me with all your laughs and smiles,
And never, I ask you, never,
Give me back my heart.
Keep it imprisoned in your possession
And allow me to keep yours to beat for me.
My darling I love you,
Do fix me with you gaze...
And before all else remember that
"No matter how many miles split us apart,
You will always be a piece of my heart."
LifeLife's a dream.Life8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It all goes by so quickly
And yet moments last forever...
Every day of my life is filled with wonder
And each minute is one to cherish.
Yet not every moment is a joyful one;
Several hours are spent in misery and depression...
But then again, even more hours are spent in joy.
Why is every moment so painful, yet so beautiful?
Why can't those moments I love last longer,
And Why do the horrible times have to stretch on?
If life's all a lie,
And if dreams never come true...
Am I just a figment of my own imagination?
Has my life been but a dream?
And do I even exist outside of my dream at all?
Life is formed in blood,
And life is sealed in fate...
And yet I laugh at the power of the stars,
And shun the idea of destiny,
Living every second to its fullest.

I have a dream,
It fills my heart,
Nothing is more important.
It takes all my thoughts,
And urges me to keep going.
I have a dream,
Yet my dream
Is far away from perfect,
So gives many a preoccupation,
A preoccupation to destroy it.
My heart is not as strong as ten,
Shattered like glass is my dream,
Scattered into the void within me,
And I'm left to search.
It's impossible to find back all the pieces,
Now every part grows its own roots,
One big dream, no various small ones
All demanding me to choose.
I feel a wish, a new desire,
Calling me from deep within,
It is a new dream:
To find my dream.

He's the one for me, however this is more than I ever bargained for. At the cost of not being alone, I am granted a tumultuous ride with breaks of heavenly sweetness. I see greatness in him, however it is often buried in an even greater sadness. He won't open that up to me. Is he worried that it'll hurt me, or is he just ashamed?
Am I selfish?

Falling in love is not what it use to be.
You can't cage it, contain it, or set it free--
You can't control it, want it, just let it be.
Why are they doing this? I don't understand;
Searching for something, yet not taking a stand.
Do they even know what love is? Maybe I don't
But what I see, could it be?
Ah, how it makes me lose hope.
Love is a power; it grows from within.
A desire that burns in the heart of a friend!
But what if it isn't? What if I lie?

You've heard the stories of the Dead,
Our loved ones leave us and we rest them in wooden beds,
These coffins since old and shielded by the earth
We think, in time they will become like dust
We think them safe, ah but what do we really know?
We do not guard over them, 'cept for hunters of body
Yes you've heard of these monstrosities, in speech, in writing
Have you seen them before, these demons small?
One thing to read, another to experience, ah and only one isn't so bad
There, before my feet, forsaking the confines of earthbound homes
They crawled, everywhere, of hundreds in number
They crawled, as they would, devouring flesh of a dead body, but there was none
Horror was burning and coursing

Is love?Is love worth the pain that follows?Is love?6 years ago in Open More Like This
If hurt came first
I could endure,
In the knowledge of seeing better days.
Knowing love would heal my pain.
But love is always what comes first
Smiles, laughter and trust
Agony and hurt what ends it all
Get left with my tears, a broken heart.
Yes, its worth going through pain to get love
But is love worth the pain that follows?
Are the good young moments good enough?
Can a man be worth my sorrows?
Abandoning me without a thing
Having taken all I offered,
Leaving me to soothe my own pain
To try and fix the mess he created.
Now I have the knowledge
Can I ever trust a man
To be different than they say?
Or is it really true
That they are all just the same?
Will every man seeing me really think
If she still breathes its ok?
Can I trust a man not to believe
I can simply throw her away
And if he does exist
Will I dare to trust?
Will I ignore my past?
Will I listen long enough?
Believe the words he says

Each self-inflicted cut,
hidden in shame,
nonexistent to the piercing eyes of others,

Not pretty enough,
There is not a perfect inch

Why can't I be beautiful?

a radiant warmth from our core which wraps tenderly,
so as she falls from up high, cold seeks to overcome,
her dress trailing with outstretched arms to the sky.
The night's claws are far from soft as they grasp,
chilling in their uncaring embrace, evoking shivers,
it pushes the mind away to another age and place,
long dormant seeds of thought sprouting into dream.
Time stands still in this otherworld of memory
and she dwells outside, staring in, separated,
the scene like a comforting bosom without a babe,
such a waste it seems, she leans against the unseen.
Empty shells of light, she watches these loved ones,
for they are long gone from this world, departed,
wisps of emotion seeking to tug at her soul, desperate,
all goes black as her distant body collapses, broken.
Sleep is forced upon the beaten and bloody form,
yet her heart beats strongly, having a reason to,
even as she forgets all but her name, becoming reborn,

From gravitys gentle pull
When you dissolve me in your romantic metaphors
As sugar does when stirred in warm liquid

As our hearts diffuse

Where the bitterness is filtered away from my sight
With my eyes, only capable of witnessing beauty
Im no longer a stranger in a world of spite
For the darkness has been devoured
By the ignition of our loves light
And when love conquers all
There need be no plight
But when the glasses come off
The candor withers away
As I notice your true colours
Im paralysed with dismay
You are not the rose I thought you were
You are the thorns on its stem
We are two repelling forces
And together we breed mayhem
