DepressedDepressed8 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
Once again all alone
I suppose I must deserve it
I'm clingy and annoying
Obnoxious and dense
Rash and silly
Lazy and obsessive
Sometimes I hate myself
I want to draw people in
But only push them away
I cry so much lately
Because everything hurts
Maybe I'm not meant to be happy
I force my smile
I fake my laugh
Does anyone notice?
Does anyone care?
It's not "Like Me" to be so
Depressed? Upset? Angry?
What is 'like me'?
Someone tell me
Because I don't know myself anymore
Once again, as before
I'm all alone
Description of a PoemThoughts on paper,Description of a Poem8 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
Emotions in ink.
Verse that shows
What the artist may think.
Not just words
That rhyme or not.
It's a writer's emotion,
Their deepest thought.
To write great poetry
So deep and true,
It must come from emotions
Deep inside of you.
What you feel is what you write.
It helps to let it all out.
It's the perfect outlet
For those who don't scream and shout.
Do not be afraid
To let the world know.
Say what you think,
And let your emotions go.
IcarusWho are you, and what am I?Icarus9 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
Remember me? I touched the sky
I flew too hard and burned too fast
Dreams like mine, they just don't last
I touched the sun on feathered limbs
I satisfied my wildest whims
But I burnt out, and I fell down
My body wasn't ever found
But don't remember me for how I failed
I embody all the dreams that've sailed
So who are you, and what am I?
Remember me? I wasn't afraid to fly.
Death is a GentlemanDo I have a reason to fear Death?Death is a Gentleman7 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
He is kind and he's quiet,
He listens as well;
He'll drive you to Heaven,
He'll cart you to Hell.
His vest is embroidered
With little white curls
He puts flowers in His pockets
Which He gives to the girls.
He likes to eat chocolate,
(Or so I've heard)
And He keeps in a cage
a little pet bird.
His skeletal horses
Always look proper;
His wine is uncorked
and untouched by the stopper.
His shoes are so polished
You can see yourself in them,
His laces are always tied
Just below His pant hem.
His bones are quite sturdy
And never look brittle;
In fact, I have heard
He quite likes to whittle.
He makes little horses
And little toy men
Which He gives to young patrons
And smaller children.
He tells jokes on occasion,
But He's always polite;
His laugh is infectious
and His chatter is light.
He sweet-talks the ladies
and jokes with the men;
He makes your time worth it,
He won't see you again.
His hat is quite tall
and His suit's always pressed;
And He'll try for yo
DragonsIn my dreams I ride on dragonsDragons9 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
Of fire and dew, blood-red
And pure white. In my dreams
I have the confidence to love my body,
But this is dream-shown in the way I flaunt it
And in the way They want it
As They want others. I am
Not the stunted one, second-best with the speech impediment.
I do not compete endlessly with those
Of the bee-stung lips, fragile bones sliding
Smoothly under untainted skin. My dragons and I,
We soar through clouds made of the souls lost
To the soul-less. Our sun is hidden beyond
The mountains in the distance. Those tall towers
With words carved into them,
Words I cannot read from this distance. We
fly closer and the soul-clouds crowd us
Whispering of poisoned lands, pulsating earth
Riddled with pox-marks. A bit higher then,
Away from the tainted soil. The words are
Readable. A Wilfred Owen quote?
"I have paid the price to live my life
On the terms that I have chosen"
Between a world filled with instant beauty
And passionate, fleeting love, and my
Dreams of soul
Barefoot Today I ran barefoot. It's the only way to run. You don't know freedom until you've run without shoes. Without soles weighing you down. Or laces tying you back. Run without inhibitions.Barefoot6 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
Today I ran down hills and across busy streets. Feet pounding against hot asphalt. Running through cool, damp, grass. Balancing on curbs. And jogging along walls .
Today I ran down crowded sidewalks, shoes in hand, not returning glances. Silent questions hang heavy in the air. They watch me as I make my way down the street. I zig-zag past trash bins and over recycle bins. The hurdles of city life.
Today I cut across lawns. Made my way through parking lots. Past schools, silent, empty for the summer. Ran past yards with inflatable pools and grills waiting to be lit. Through hopscotches drawn in chalk. Pink dust clinging to my feet.
Today I ran barefoot. Ignoring snide remarks and odd stares. I just ran. Leaving ever
SuicideI find it funny how thoseSuicide7 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This

are the ones who everyone calls coward,
when everyone else is afraid to die.
Broken dreamsBroken dreams deep with in me,Broken dreams7 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
Scattered into tiny pieces near me.
Reminding me of my past mistakes,
I want those moments back no matter what it takes.
It hurts me to look way back,
And fall into the abyss of black.
My mind is like a deep, dark rustling forest,
Cannot be calm, can never rest,
It is now prepared only to detest.
Everything seems black,
I am cold, warm love I lack.
I just want to go back.
Every night I fall asleep,
Hoping that I wont rise from my dream that is very deep,
Watching everything brake,
I feel that nothing I can do, everything they take...
Monsters that I've created,
Eating, destroying me, for too long have I everything hated.
My broken dreams have slayed me,
I have changed; I am not as I used to be.
Shattered are my dreams, and so am I,
Emotionless in a field of screams I lie.
No one would care if I would just die,
You can see the pain in my feeling less eye.
Though in my heart I still feel hope,
That ties me and life with a weak rope.
For too long have
LossI see my fate in your cruel eyes,Loss7 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
There is only pain, suffering and a horrible demise.
You do not respond to my devastating cries,
You do not see my pathetic tries.
Sun changes to moon,
I feel my death coming soon.
Another day, another night,
In my eyes nothing is right.
But still it was an unforgettable walk under the glistening moon,
Even knowing that youll leave me soon.
Hope was slipping through,
And was crushed by you
I held you like a teddy, very tight
And watched the sun fade in the horrible darkness of this night.
My feelings were so strong,
But I was very wrong.
Like a helpless child,
Walking into the fire burning wild,
I felt so dark, and so alone,
Another toy that was by the cruel life thrown.
All my feelings were crushed,
I was by the darkness touched.
Forgot all my hopes, and all of my dreams.
Left alone by myself again, it seams.
In the morning I die,
In the night I rise,
Left to perish inside,
Nowhere can I hide.
Park of Dreams ReloadedPark Of DreamsPark of Dreams Reloaded7 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
While walking through a park today,
I tripped upon a rock of gray,
then struck my head upon that stone
where I blacked out there all alone.
A dream soon took me to a place,
a crisp clear vision of your face,
your blue eyes shined their loving glow,
your golden hair was let to flow
upon bare shoulders naturally,
as it cascaded down on me.
You placed a soft hand to my face,
which caused my heart to pound and race.
You brought your breath so close to mine,
then whispered only one small line.
You said... "I Love You... yes I do,
I'll always be here just for you".
That forced my dreaming eyes to tear,
for suddenly I had no fear.
No fear of ever losing you,
the one I've searched for my life through.
The one so lovely, warm, and kind,
the one I thought I'd never find.
I tried to force my lips to move,
to say the words so I could prove,
that all held feelings deep inside,
are feelings that I cannot hide.
But words don't come so easily,
while deep within a dream you see,

as I am dead.
Smile for me,
for I have lived.
for I can no longer.
for I want you to.
for I am happy.
for I do too.
so I won't be forgotten.
Embrace the fact that I moved on,
and do so yourself.
Remember the times,
where we laughed.
Remember the times,
when we couldn't stop crying.
I tried so hard,
and worked my way into your hearts.
and let me keep that place in your heart.
Hold me there,
and we'll meet again.
Let me stay,
and never let me leave.
for I am gone.
Let me go,
for I won't come back.
I say to you,
goodbye my friends.
Remember my words,
and let me leave in peace.
RoadI am walking alone along this road,Road7 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
It is too hard to carry all of this heavy load.
I try to scream, I try to shout,
But nobody hears it, there is no doubt.
Dark clouds are above me,
I am not a man as I used to be.
I walk down this road painfully, but I dont stop,
I shall not give up until Ill lifelessly drop.
I sit to rest, on this heavy rock,
And I get an enormous electricity shock.
It came out of nowhere; it came from the sky;
It was a sign that if Ill stay here, Ill die.
I stood up and walked away,
And suddenly the rock and its surroundings started to decay.
I thanked the God for this great sign,
As painful as it was, it saved the life of mine.
The PushOh dancing fairy,The Push7 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
Why do your eyes so magically glisten?
And why does your face seem so merry?
My face is wintery pale and dead,
Even more blood has been shed.
The cruelty of humans has stabbed my eyes,
My ears drown in their pitiful lies...
My empty eyes bleed,
From your horrible need.
I am wounded deep,
Slowly falling into another dark sleep.
You just prosper, extend and multiply,
You don't even care that I slowly die.
Expand your cities, your terrible needs,
Growing more and more dreadful weeds.
My wings are smashed,
I cannot fly, all hope has crashed.
But I see that anarchy will fall,
Finally the lights' trumpets call.
Dear human, you're such a perfect creation!
So carefree and full of determination.
How would you like to feel the pain of extermination???
My loveTouch me, and I will awake,My love7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
With a strong, heart piercing ache.
I know, that we can not be together,
But my heart is yours forever.
Your kiss can kill,
I hope I have a strong enough will,
To whit stand your seduction,
Oh its just my introduction.
When you walk down the hall,
All the boys start to bawl,
But I stay silent,
Even though I am quite violent,
Oh God, give me some courage!
To talk to an angel with such great knowledge.
Day after day I try to come near you,
But I cant even say: Hi how are you?
When I look at your lips, eyes and hair
I understand that you dont really care.
Your appearance says it all,
Youre always dressed up like going to a ball.
Oh and who am I kidding here!
I always wanted to feel you near.
No mater what you are,
My love has gone oh too so far...
I want a kiss; I want a touch
Oh God am I asking for that much?
Youre like a flower: very fragile and pure
I fear that this pain I can no longer endure.
Should I end it all or should I wait?
Love...Love is pain...Love...7 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
You can expect no gain...
Why even try?
If at the end you'll only cry...
It is good if the one you love loves you,
Then you feel like all your dreams came true.
And when she will deceive,
You'll fall apart, there will be nothing left to believe...
Then you'll feel like an empty field...
Nothing left... She has shattered your strong shield.
Burning in the abyss of pain,
You pray for a cold refreshing rain.
You'll get nothing,
Your heart will be slowly rotting.
Eating whats left inside.
That monster will destroy all of your pride.
Your tears expand the whole within
You feel so helpless, so damaged by her sin.
Alone in the dark forest you think of her,
Killing your self slowly, with the things that are already a blur.
Devastated and alone left boiling in a pot of hate,
You'll be soon left only as dust at this rate.
No hope, no future, no love...
A field of darkness and you're like a damaged dove...
Can not fly, can not reach your dreams,
You'll be left to die here it
Manifesto of AestheticismManifesto of ÆstheticismManifesto of Aestheticism6 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
I. There is no such thing as a solely true validity of meaning behind ambiguous terms like "moral", "value", "life" and "death", "love" and "hate", "good" and "bad", "true" and "false", "right" and "wrong". Any term which is by any means similar to the aforementioned words is in its pure meaning entirely dependant of the very person whose mind it was formed by or whose lips it has escaped. It is of completely subjective materia and therefore unique to the individual. No artistic craftsman shall ever question the personal Ideas and Ideals of their ilk, for personal meanings alone do not oppose a threat to anyone but the frightened and the coward.
II. The purpose of art for the individual is untouchable. Art may for example operate as a valve of anger, fear, grief or lack of self-confidence, but it may also function as a pastime, livelihood, abstraction, pleasure, etc. The reasons for any artist's striving is solely up to themself and th
YouSuch a mellifluous calm sound,You7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
New heaven have I found.
Tender like a cloud and sweet,
Just like your tranquil heart beat.
Free as a bird, with not a care,
Flying over the mountains, silent and fair.
There is no obstacle it cant fly over,
Bringing luck as a four leaf clover.
Caught in a raging storm,
I turn to my true form,
A deep ocean and the little me,
Like in chains and I cant break free.
I would notI would not ask to see your face, for I am not worthy of the passion in your eyes.I would not7 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
I would not ask for a smile, for I don't deserve the happiness it would bring me.
I would not ask for your touch, because it would warm the cold depths of my being.
I would not ask for your love, because the lowest creature deserves it more than I.
My thoughts and my dreams betray me, for it is there that we are together
Sharing the joys of life, of love, and of simply being there for each other
In my world, there are no tears of sorrow, I would bear that burden for you
You are far to precious to me to ever feel pain and suffering again
With your hand in mine, I can withstand every storm that this life brings
No feat is too great to achieve with you by my side along the way
We not only take on the entire world, we take it on and win
As with all dreams though, reality comes crashing in, and I find myself here alone
I would not ask for your heart, no matter how much I love you.

that you could escape this nightmare you're living in?
That you could run away,
and ignore al those horrible things you've done?
How could I ever think,
that I could escape this nightmare we created?
That I could run away,
and find an exit.
That I would be able to find my way,
in this maze of lies.
That you would be able to escape,
this place I pulled you into.
We will never be able to escape this place,
to escape my head, my thoughts, my mind.
For youKurz ist die Zeit die wir hier habenFor you6 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
Doch Wertvoller als alle Schatzes gaben
Nur kurz verweilen wir am gleichen Ort
bis uns Pflichten tragen fort
Doch ganz gleich wo wir verweilen
keine Entfernung kann unsere Herzen teilen
Wo hin wir auch reisen von Zeit zu Zeit
Ewig bleibt die Zweisamkeit
Im Geist, im Herz und Gedankengang
für immer, ganz gleich wo entlang
Warum ich schultere solche Taten
Mein Schatz, das will ich gern verraten
Du brachtest Leben hin wo keines War
nur durch dich ist das Leben wunderbar
Wenn du lachst und strahlst den ganzen Tag
Du wecktest in mir Farben was sonst keiner vermag
Für deine Liebe bleib ich hier
an deiner Seite, für immer bei dir
