March to the ScaffoldWalkMarch to the Scaffold5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Don't let the night get away
Legs of a centipede
The forest looms ahead
Kicking and correcting
Each branch greeted me
With an ambiguous wave
As we followed
The cold nipped at our heels
A protective bitch
Guarding it's sanity
As we made a path
To the end of our journey
Like termites eating our insides out
Leaving us a shell
A march to the scaffold
Longing for it to last forever.
The sun threatens
Our pace quickens
Stripping the leaves of their trees
We call out
A fallen bird for its mother
Nature protecting us
The final steps into the open

Staring over the edge
Run like a river by my side
As I judge the world,
An emancipation of dissonance
It'sRaw for your touch.
Storms graze overhead
Leaving only memories beyond
Feeling only the pulse
The heart (...of the cause)
The second you open your eyes
To the stunning sunlight
You are born to live
This world not of your own
Alongside pouting princess
And foreign figures
You open your eyes to
Brutality and reality
Humanity just forgets

I could have failed to love you
or respected you
or have cared for you at all
It could be worse,
I could have cheated
I could have shut you out
not accepted you
or acknowledged you at all
It could be worse,
I could have said nothing
or all that you didn't want to hear
It could be worse,
I could still be there at your shoulder
And just think, think ,
It could be worse
I could have lived...

You look at your feet
At the eyes of the sea...
And you take the plunge
The water engulfs you,
Grabbing at your flesh
just to let go
You don't breathe
You don't remember
The silence croons softly
filling your ears
The water blurs your vision
You see nothing
You're swimming in the sky
The blue surrounding you
You know nothing
but ignorance is bliss
Long strokes, gliding
your face slices through the water
You graze your hang slowly and gently across the floor
Tiny particles aroused at your to

Et puis un petit cur

Dans la cuisine
Je préparais le thé.

Shedding its colour
It rose and fell
Dancing in me
Churning all over
Gentle repetition of talent
Soaring above me
Bursting with existence
To leave nothing

Girl: Thanks for showing up. This is really hard for me... you know, it's really hard to confront you, but I have to do it. No, just let me speak, okay? You're always interrupting not just me, but my whole LIFE. I've had enough.
Your constant nagging leaves me so exhausted that I can barely move. When I'm with you, I feel like I lose my ability to have other friends. You're so jealous and controlling of me. I can't take the way that you dominate everything I do anymore! You keep me from being able to keep any commitments-- both in my obligations and to my frie
As I am definedAge 19.As I am defined5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My life can be defined by my relationships.
I have no name. I am _________.
I have no identity and sometimes wonder if I really exist. My dad says that I don't exist- my memories and perceptions are all skewed. Everything I remember- it didn't happen that way. My mom thinks that I exist, but I'm not sure if I believe her. All mothers will tell their kids that they exist.
But all that doesn't matter, I'm here. Whether I am a figment of the universe's imagination seems to be of no consequence. I'll keep on movin' until someone stops me and says:
Your part's over. Good job.
You can go home now.

Life, that time between dreamsLife...Life, that time between dreams6 years ago in Open More Like This
People cheer when it's created,
they cry when it's lost.
It's always in abundance,
yet cannot be stopped
It's slowly going to destroy us all
the very thing we were created from
is annihilating us all,
piece by piece we fall
spent like discarded ammunition
No room to breathe,
no place to relax
not even a bench to lay our heads
Life in itself
a living paradox
The thing we once thought precious
now the greatest horrors man will face.
There's nothing to take away from it,
it simply goes on.
Nothing you learn from it that will matter again,
simply more studies for an audited class
It still continues

The palms of your hands must be sore
From the pieces of me you've trapped there
Just the same, Could you wrap me in your arms
Feeling cold beneath your stare
Take me back to your warm smile
Back to the curve of your lips, a place I know so well
We are so Fragile
We are so young
And who'd have thought love was so
And who'd have thought you'd be standing there
when I looked up.
I found your eyes and you smiled.

I am all you need, forget the rest.
No, dont waste time.
Come to me.
Let me touch you.
The way I want to touch, only you.
To be felt,
To be real.
That is all that matters.
Physical, mental doesnt matter.
I want you, come with me.
Be real with me.
Shed your clothes, inner and outer.
Open for me.
Feel my heart.
All for you.

release, relieve, rewind
it's so tough to climb
unwind, untimed, untamed
and now who's to blame
refrain, rename, retry
it smothers you this brand new world
it pulls you away from the past,
it puts you through the twists and twirls
programs you to live life so fast.

Little annoying streaks of forgetfulness
A frothing sea of nothing
Nothing to feel
I stare out at the nothing
And it taunts me
With its wicked graceful chokehold
My minds web
A vacuum with no filter
Clogged with lifes impure offerings
No longer inhaling
It pains me
Like an awkward glance from a girl I love
I feel like a short person at the back of the crowd
I want to rip through
For even a glimpse
Im in a rut

A sonnet about our dear friend Poe
who, unfortunately, must weep
alone over the loss of a deary-eyed doe,
making it hard to sleep.
This doe, better known as Annabel Lee
who gave a loud moan
before going off to the sounding sea
where she is all alone.
He also weeps for dear Frances
who stays above deck.
She jumps and prances
nearly causing a Shipwreck.
I end this rhyme with word from a Raven
To let you know he art no craven.
Insanity I think I am losing my mind.Insanity5 years ago in Open More Like This
My thoughts and feelings
Screaming down my ear,
Won't wait their turn:
I must be losing my mind.
Even when bedtime stories are done
My silence is not peace and quiet
But a dreaded place
A wide open space
Where my worst fears are poking at my mind
And self - doubt keeps shouting me down.
I need to scream
But nothing will come
So here I sit,
Imprisoned in my lethargy
And wait for Insanity to swallow me whole.

Love BeyondOur love, a rose, wilted by winter's breath.Love Beyond6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
For all the passion I felt inside
Your soul still was swept with Charon's tide
And for you I shall show Hades my wrath.
With this pen I shall scribe your death.
Of your beauty I shall write,
Your curving lips, your eyes once bright
Though now you lie beyond the darkened path.
One day I'll care to venture
And tell you what our love meant.
Your love had been so pure,
A shame to have it pent.
Of this you you can be sure,
One day I will return the love that with you went.

The cotton candy sky staring down
He caught a cloud
And made your heart of spun sugar
The full moon watched the sun
drowning in the horizon
by midnight her tears had fallen
glazing the earth with ethereal glow
lying in your cupped hand translucent
with the rising of the new sun
grew life from your loam crib
from shoots of green your veins were formed
vines flowing through your honey heart
tenderly sketched flawlessly
in eagerness the roots did stretch
to soak sweet life from liquid earth
lucid blood rubied by dark clay,
at last in leaves you were cocooned
where you awaited lovers touch

Adam loved God so would not take the apple because God forbade it.
So the Serpent offered it to Eve.
He offered her a curse.
The curse was knowledge.
It was to know good and evil.
It was life and death.
It was banishment from Eden.
Eve saw the apple and heard the serpent's sweet words.
She saw the curse but she also saw the blessing.
For the apple wasn't just the knowledge of good and evil.
It was the chance to choose BETWEEN good and evil.
It wasn't just life and death but the chance to LIVE before you died.
It wasn't banishment from Eden but the promise of the REST OF THE WORLD.
It placed boundaries on her
