You don't know how it makes me feel.
My heart is bleeding
yet screaming for more.
A devilish curse has been placed upon my soul.
As I am gasping for another breath
wishing for nothing
but a suicidal death.
I feel so
but its all in my head.
The pain you are putting me through
seems to be my only cure.
I am worthless..
I am useless..
I am nothing..
as I fall further and further
away from the world.
Take a needle
pin my heart
on to your chest.
Lying in my bed, I dream of you
..as I die tonight.
All I want from you
The PrayerI beseech youThe Prayer5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To forgive me
For I have forsaken others,
Dragged them to enslavement;
My soul, once golden
Now belongs to the one
who lies beneath:
The master of curses witchery
sin and lust.
It has no heart,
Its blood runs black and filthy
As is my past
As are my clothes
As I was -
Enveloped in vengeance and despair
Before the thick fog
called my name, dear God.

Before the thunder
Before the blinding darkness
Before I felt this hopeless...
There was only the falling rain.
And I felt clean
And I felt safe
And I could see Your face,
But now I'm so alone
Lost in this murderous downpour
That's washed away yet another facade
The remnants of another facade
Are falling in my tears to unfeeling concrete
And I am powerless to save even one fragment
Of who I thought I was
As it collides with the earth and shatters into a thousand pieces
A hollow reflection of myself
Staring back with accusing eyes
As each piece falls…
Life seems to have stopped completely
And rested itself on my shoulders
Until it pushes me down to my knees-
Powerless as the day I was born.
I feel myself fall
And reach out to grab something
To save me
The words escape my constricted throat
Before I know that I've even said them
Rage at betrayal
Overwhelming sadness and pain
So this is love?!
Life seems so futile
As I fall on my face t

We never know
but when it slits our being
it can last a lifetime
We never know
but where it hits us
We never know
but who hurts us
is always the most special
We never know
why they always do
we're just always left wond'rin'
so We never know
how to heal the wounds
if ever they do heal, still there's always deep scars
Mockery of a GodI have learned that theMockery of a God6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
taste of failure is
and it stings the tongue.
It had been a wonderous idea.
where peace was prominent, where
I was god.
Where evil was banished,
and the dreaded sickness
known as human disdain and contempt,
But I was young,
Soon I was cursed with a plague of my own:
I looked toward my brothers' and sisters' creations.
They had wars, and fantastic literature
that spoke of rebellion and oppression.
had no fantastic literature, or
Even the people,
seemed to be plagued by boredom.
But that of course,
was not the last of my failures.
It seemed failure and mistakes were
the only things I could properly make.
The people began destroying the beautiful
trees and animals,
my beloved wildlife......was soon gone.
My siblings laughed at me!
They didn't offer their words of wisdom!
It seemed only the mortals gained their love,
but I their brother,
was left with nothing.

The Seven Deadly SinsThe seven deadliest of all sins,The Seven Deadly Sins7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The pillars of spite, greed, and desire within.
An aurora of brilliance to blind the fool,
And the sirens song to devour the cruel.
The first pillar constructed of green,
The envy enthralled lust which can turn the soul mean.
For jealously of wanting which one does not possess,
Blinds them of all they do and for all they have been blessed.
The second pillar covered in crimson red,
The result of ones wrath and craving for bloodshed.
For the hatred which has sprouted so deeply within,
Ensnares the soul and drags it to the depth of all sin.
The third pillar glinting with gold,
The greed for more which taints the soul.
For the more one longs for and the more one hungers,
The faster ones existence heads into the eternal slumber.
The fourth pillar clothed in a blanket of violet hue,
The vanity of oneself spotting the heart with a poisonous dew.
For the pride one feels when he gazes into his mirror of sin,
Shall one day cause the glass to shatter and rev

I am sending my love

my bedroom is my coffin
sprayed with sweet formalin
I lay still with my bloodshot eyes open
as my chaotic mind is wondrin'
I think I need some nicotine
to kiss the smoke as it spells your name
I think I need some wine or caffeine
to taste your heat when we're fuckin'
I think I need some cocaine
to get away from all burden
I think I have to lick that bloodstain

I Envy The DancerDance, darlingI Envy The Dancer4 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Dance your pain to dust
Dance until you mind shuts off
Make the silence spread like fog
Until your feet will bleed
Don't succumb to the temptation
Don't catch you breath
Make your feet hurt
Make your knees wail
Make you muscles weep
You know I envy you?
The only thing I can do I talk
A thing that hurts much more
Then to dance on bleeding feet
So dance my dear
And maybe you can make
My mind shut off

He doesn't even know
How much he means to me
I long for him to hold me
And look at me the way
He looks at her
My best friend
The person who I tell everything
Is the one person
Who wouldn't understand
Who would tell me that their just friends
Who knows how he feels for her
Who knows he would
Do anything just to see
THey walk down the street
Hand in hand
Arm in arm
As they talk easily
About anything at all
While I walk besides them
The loyal friend, whose there
To listen and
To understand how it is for them
To be friends with benefits
When I'm the one who
Understands what they both want
I understand them
But they don't understand me
They don't even try
When he's angry
Or frustrated at someone
I don't make a sound
As I scream out in his
When he's sad
And his eyes are crying
But only in his mind
I let those tears fall through mine
When he smiles and he's happy
My heart races and
I'm at peace
Like I'm watching white pedals

I'm looking deep into your bright and dark iris and I see the page of unfinished story. I wonder if tomorrow is a day, or just a conspiracy of the universe?
My smile it's so telluric and my heart catch roots in a tomorrow which is abandoned in the arms of eternity.
-I love you...
Unequal whispers, or just an old cliche in the footsteps of a tango dance, so famous that it never try to keep in mind it's name?
Echoing, pain and flowers.
Reality, or merely a phantom atypical of a time stuck in a color of forgetfulness?
Questions and devotion, silence and obsolescence.
-Tomorrow is your birthday...
Tomorrow is a day just like any other days!
Four seasons, game, shyness and much dust.

like the fingers on my left hand
I had five of them
spare the five on my right
it would be the same
like the thumb, he's quite far from the others
I look up to him
because his music gives him wings
I thought he was the one
like the forefinger, he always points ahead
I look forward to him
because his skills rob him away
I thought he was the one
like the middlefinger,
Redemption RoadRedemption road oh where does it go?Redemption Road4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Through miles of pain and suffering I know.
It twists and twines like a serpent's spine
It slithers through the caverns of your mind.
Your heart breaks as your body shakes
The haunting sound of laughter quakes.
Be forewarned you've only just begun
To fall like the night or rise like the sun.
The going is slow as you all may know.
The corruption is vast but does not show.
The ordeals are many among the task at hand
You fall from the wicked you couldn't withstand.
The darkness consumes and seeps its way in
It misconstrues your views and you begin to sin.
Jaded and tainted you feel no remorse
Controlled by madness you take no discourse.
The dawn breaks and illuminates the skies
It cleanses the shadows which once clouded your eyes.
The nearby cathedral bells hearken in your ear
Almost as if the rapture was here.
Your newfound strength guides you along the path
Focused and determined to smite a demons wrath.
All of the sudden a distant object grows near

To love and not tell.
It eats you slowly,
From the inside out,
So you eventually hate yourself.
Everything you see or do
Reminds you of him.
Songs, stories, scents,
And much more.
When you can talk so much
But not to him,
When you interpret every
Look from him,
When you find yourself
Writing about him,
This is when your heart hurts.
The only thing to do to cure the pain,
Is to tell him.
So, here it goes.
*@#$%&!, I love you.
SorryIm insensitiveSorry7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I didnt read between the lines
Failed to see what you really felt
Paid no heed to your tears
Deaf to the screams of your heart
Im a jerk
With my stupidity
I made you cry
Blinded by my arrogance
Fueled by sheer ignorance
Imperfect in every way
Tardy in times of need
Absent in times of struggle
For failing you
Failing to repay your love
Failing to be there with you
When you need me the most
For being such a fool
Not knowing how you felt
For being blind and deaf
To your cries and tears
I humbly ask your forgiveness
For my insensitivity and idiocy
For my arrogance and stupidity
For my worthlessness and insecurities
I dont want to lose you
