PainWhy do you take me in,Pain in Free Verse More Like This
Show me warmth
And expect me not to burn?
In all my selfishness
I run eagerly to your exposed flame,
Watch as it dances happily; content,
Hiding your own distress behind a thick skin-
A beautiful mask.
Why, why, why
A repetitive drilling in my head,
Driving me insane at it's every sadistic knell.
I deserve not your warmth,
I warrant not your friendship,
I am fit for your hate; your scorn; your passion.
I, who adore you for yourself:
Your incandescent, unique nature-
The sparkle of your eyes at the mere mention of a thing you love-
Your excited mannerisms.
I, who would you take my life a thousand different ways had I the opportunity to offer it.
I, who would feel any emotion from you- so long as it were for selfish, old me.

Flows like a river of rich purple,
Flies like a butterfly;
Handicapped, by darkness.
Necessity gives way
A bitter ocean of salt tears,
Corrodes away at this newborn heart,
Chocking, spluttering, suffocating.
The need to feel overwhelms
Like that of a pup in a tied bag.
Lips like velvet,
Laced with chloroform,
The knives I desire,
Plunge in this selfishly beating heart,
Withdrawing scarlet tears of joy;

Drawing blunt grief.
Bullet-leads behind blind boys
Stroke eagerly at their Adam's apple,
A thickness in their sharpness
Whose fine malice seeps scarlet.
The madman's cartridges flash
For God tonight,
But He passes along; grieved.
A Ballad to the UndeadLime coloured eyes,A Ballad to the Undead in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The window to your soul,
I can't help but stare.
When did I last see
Such an insight to heaven,
That I forget to breathe?
In your eyes,
I bathe in paradise...
Long gone the horrors of this
World, cast asunder by a sea of dreams,
Each a featureless face,
An unknown cancer,
Lusting for my attention,
But not you.
Those delicate eyes,
A surge of emotions,
A want to protect,
Overwhelming my reality;
Overwhelmed by reality.
A desert of smoke;
A game who's host is a schoolboy,
With a Captain's honour...
None could ever know the hope in your honey eyes,
The flame making all else pitch black,
The light revealed to few-
The river to heaven.
Regiments of men pass,
But who are they?
It matters not- a man is but dust and air
When not with your soul, your beautiful eyes.
Your life the torch in your eyes,
Burns its surroundings,
Wrecks all it holds dear,
All for the lack of a voice
As a hush descends...
Numb is a feeling for the strong,
I am weak, just

You fell back so slowly,
Midnight engulfing us both;
Draping across our skin

Leaks out sinuously,

Enthrall me as a soft, seductive
Breath escapes those parted dams
Made scarlet by my offering.
Quietly I inhale you,
Until the reality of you falls like an avalanche,
As crisp and clear as your delicate marble,
Engulfing me, sucking me in, knocking me out-
And we fall,

To keep it well,
To store with it my delicate insanity,
That it may thrive
When my body is handed over to these nurses three
Like a mannequin to the department store,
Or Macbeth to a man not born to woman.
I know you hold it grudgingly,
It's shards jab painfully at your hands
And cut your arms as it's
Spikes weigh down upon you;
No amount of leaking scarlet will lighten it's load,
The chains you forged hang heavy from it's unfortunate hooks.
Overwhelmed by a harsh black light
Burning holes into my body
And scorching my mind;
"Cleansing", they call it-
I would rather remain dirty
than suffer this indoctrination.
Bitterly I swallow their poison from
their barbed chalice,
The taste of my own deep crimson life
Soothing the tickling at the back of my throat
Until they have the audacity
And cheek to class me 'sane',
And stamp their pretentious books.
Tear away at me,
Rip away from my core and leave me bare
Just throw those shards of a heart

Morality grabs at your black clotted
Heart and quickens your steps-
Away from me.
Walls and windows remain,
Like decrepit widows,
Barren of the promises they once bore.
Who but the lone maiden at my
Feet holds memory for the ills
We suffered at our own hands.
Mourning bells break, and
Tombstones turn to dust,
But at least these crumbling
Textbooks remember us.

Wash away my faded memories
Like dirt on the sidewalk
And walk all over it

Anyone would feel depresed after what happened.
You cry like I do every night and think about the loss.
Do you still want to see me after what I did?
Everything was my fault after all I left that mark.
Not that you didn't let me do it to you,
I was just stupid not to think about what would happen.
Selfish is what I've been.
Too happy about my first love to realize the danger.
I gave you that hickey without thinking.
Life gave me everything and I blew it.
Little do I know who you blame for this mess we're in.
Love made us forget to be careful.
Of all the things to end it, it had to be you parents.
Very horrible things they must have said to you.
Enemies to people like us, they hate our love.
You'd think they'd lost their minds.
Over and over they try to keep us apart.
Unless we ignore them and just love each other they win.

Blushing behind the mask she looks away.
I wait my patience never running low.
I really wanted her to look my way.
She sets the pillow down and faces me.
I smile at her but will not say a thing.
She comes over her face is all I see.
She looks into my eyes without moving.
But then as she leans forward I move back.
She hesitates then tries again quicker.
Our lips meet for moments nothing to lack.
We pull away our blush getting thicker.
I didn't speak but stared at the floor.
We then continued to kiss more and more.
What he doesn't knowIn a crowded middle school hallwayWhat he doesn't know in Free Verse More Like This
She held the hand of a nice boy
She smiles and pretends to like him
He was sweet to her in his nerdy way
She didn't want to hurt him
But she didn't want to date him
She kissed him on the cheek for show
Because she wouldn't kiss him on the lips
She'd been pressured into this
Living a lie every day and for what
To spare a nice persons feelings
To end a rumor that tormented her
To pretend to fit in for once
This had to end before she went crazy
She turns to him and says it's over
He's hurt but she stays strong
He'll never know the reason it didn't work
Because she was a lesbian
But no one needs to know that
It wouldn't have helped anyway
perfectEverything was so perfectperfect in Free Verse More Like This
We had our drawbacks
We didn't even go to the same school
But I loved you all the same.
Never had a fight or any anger towards you
We were always thinking the same thing
We were so alike it was like we had twin souls
There'd never been two people so perfect for each other.
Then one stupid mistake tore us apart
I've messed up like this countless times before
But this time you're not the one that wants to leave
It was your family that ripped my perfect love away from me.
This is different from all my past heart breaks
Not just because you've seen my heart in its purest form
But you cry yourself to sleep and not me
For once I'm the strong one and you're a perfect disaster.
I worry that when we can be together again that you won't still love me
But I know you feel the same because you always do
I have already dedicated myself to you for all eternity
Because to me no matter what you'll always be my perfect love.
The Mirror GirlShe looks at you and she likes you.The Mirror Girl in Free Verse More Like This
She likes the way you joke around,
or the way you never back down,
the way you think, and the way you talk.
She's so shy; she wants to be like you.
She summons up her courage and talks to you,
you like her and become her friend.
You never knew she was so kind,
and yet she was still so funny given the chance.
You became such good friends that you didn't notice,
that the more time you spent with her
the more she started to reflect you.
When you met her she knew nothing of
your favorite band or manga.
Now its her favorite too and she's just like you.
The way she jokes around,
or the way she never backs down,
the way she thinks, and the way she talks.
Looking at her is like looking at you.
Her old friends found this creepy and left her,
but she still resembles them, still loving what they loved.
You however, you never noticed that she's now your twin;
Because your in love with the girl within the mirror.
The mirror was just a tool.

Oh look at that she is calling right now

Fantasy and reality
Tiny vibrations from your mouth on my
Tender swatch of skin, vibrant and delicious are both
Can I stroke your ego with my insecurity?
Can I sit on the couch beside your wife and tell her
How beautiful your children are?
What if I lean in to breathe her scent and try
To feel what she feels like to you
Can I tell her with my eyes, my lips
That we ride bareback in the middle of thunderstorms?
I take two steps and break this world apart
Brick by miserable brick
I find solace in the rhythm of the repetition
That's also where I find insanity, sweet and real
Also bitter and brash, method of extremes
Can I impregnate this vacuum with innuendo?
Infiltrate the silence, even as the blood flows
Proving I can remember or I can forget, neither a choice
Can I whisper names and dates and times on the wind
And have them be carried boldly to your ears
Would you listen if you knew?

Between muddled memories and skin
Mottled and bruised

Wishbone envy and spectator sports
Throw a tantrum and rue the day
Between sealed envelopes and yesteryear
Bones lie buried in shallow matter
Hidden under zeal and 3 other languages
Sidestep the apathy and guilt
And feel something if they can
Between two tin cans and string
The truth LIES dormant
Balanced on beveled edges of lust
And symphonies of repercussions
Melding oil and dust, diamond and rust
Between sugar water and sleeping pills
Water into wine reveries reveal
Molting mockingbirds mock mock mocking

A poet and his heartThis is a poem about a poetA poet and his heart in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Who tried to write
For the sake of the moment
What this story was
Will never become what
It was meant to be
Such a short story
But it holds so much meaning
And so much history
I can only write so much
About this nameless poet
Because he never shined
It was an unpolished stone
His works of words and nothing
But clusters of words on paper
What people say and do
Are two entirely different things
This one was a poet of a soul
When the morning sun shines
He writes down about his dream
In a black notebook that sees
When the night falls and wakes up
The poet of our's writes about his agony
In this living word of vintage
He once asked if life was about class
And his foe in life answered simply
Life is life within life
He might have looked for it like a wolf
And his black fur talked to the wind
But his fangs found only dead prey
I cannot ask much about him
An unknown poet who was seeking
What he thought he couldn't achieve
He was so wrong in that conclusio

And what if the angel wasn't a demon at all
And a year later the demon became a human
Looking for some means of love and they would call
Even a stranger to feel it in their heart
One year later they were raised to heaven
In happiness and without any danger
And i am just happy i got to spend the time
With this beautiful, white-winged angel

There is a truth to my being on this Earth
A truth that brings life to my tempest
There is a lie to be told each time I try to hide
Because those are the times it slips my mind
That there is a flow of blood within my veins
Meant not to cascade down but to pulsate
There is blood streaming out of my pains
And all I can do is feel its embrace
There is a sense to bleeding out my thoughts
Because everyone bleeds sometimes

a certain message prolonged
for the world to see, but never witness
a darkness of colors mixed

resulting in birth of another one

Her tattoo was a flower
a strange power
it emitted from within
while we committed sin
under the sheets of darkness
the sun and stars playing chess
on her back, eyes glowing neon red
but still somewhat beautiful

That small rose turned into a design
it was larger
over the whole of her upper arm
which intrigued me to no end
Three months later her thigh got

while the snow was snowing
and our bodies begged for warmth

for reasons yet unknown

Her bones laid to rest
A journey completed
Death knelt at the grave with a smile on his face

I cannot save myself
If you are condemned, also
I cannot speak of you anymore
My body still yearns
My pleading is real
But something someone
Rips it all from my hands
I cannot look at you anymore
Your heart isn't human
Your blood is the ink
I have danced in fire
But now I must drown to nothing

My Weekend at Goldilocks MotelOnce upon a timeless fairytale, I spent a weekend at Goldilocks Motel; Friday through Sunday. To relax, to escape my heartache or some shit. I thought, what the hell, the reviews are decent. Some rated it five stars, some rated it three stars, and some rated it one-star. And I was just feeling lucky.My Weekend at Goldilocks Motel in Short Stories More Like This
My first night at Goldilocks Motel, I walked into my room, unpacked and shit, noticing three beds in my room: a little one, a big one, and a medium one. How strange, I mused, considering I was the only one in the room. I tried the little bed first; it was made of sweetness and love. Or, more literally, feathers and sugar. But that did not do at all! My legs were too big, and it was too cosy.
Next I tried the bigger bed, thinking my legs would fit; it was made out of anger and resentment. Or, more literally, needles and bricks. But that

Orchestrating the world's life through it's divinity of colors.
Oranges and yellows are too encountered slowly,
Encasing the pillows of the angels in frothy wisps.
They awaken the world to its beauty
Having been forgotten in the world so harsh.
Without a moment's hesitation
Akin to the sands of time,
The glowing orb ascends to its rightful place in the sky.
It's sacred oasis- mediating between the world and it's heavens
Dutifully, if not righteously, beginning the world anew.

Our hearts, surely, beat as one.
Cracks give way to what lies underneath
The truth hidden in the ground
But even with this, mine ignorance is bliss
As your eyes, mine have found.
However, the ground it shakes with displeasure
And the sun's inferno alights
I look for your hand to quell my fear
But it's against nature's forces I fight.
The sun glares down in horror
Death comes upon mine eyes
I prepare to fight as a warrior
Then I see you've left me to die.
The shock consumes my body
Its depth erodes my will
I attempt to regain my warrior's stature
To realize I shan't prevail.

The crowd abound, entranced in the show
"Innocent bystanders" who didn't throw a blow
But their sentiments cut deeper than a hit from any foe
As I lie ridiculed in front of their eyes.
I deserve this, it's just fate
These words they tell me, stricken with hate
Because I'm engorged with too much weight
Different from everyone else
Can't they see I hate myself too?
I'd be skinny and beautiful right on cue
If I had the chance to click undo
But these words are lost as the pandemonium ensues.
The show is done, the crowd dispersed
What they don't know, is I've just cursed
Away my life, it'll be done tonight
Perhaps God will accept me, His angel of the night.

A tale woven from the very threads of the Fates.
A narrative of great loss and of love,
Of how passion can rob one of logic.
Listen, as great battles and terrible tragedies
Hold you in its silky web.
A boat sails from a distant land.
Its lone passenger staring forward,
Through time and space.
A Purpose leads him, Destiny drives him.
Matthias Revnora, victim of tragedy.
His homeland calls him.
Farewelling family, forsaking friends,
Thinking only of revenge.
But how much will be achieved?
Returning all but blind,
Ignorant of the forces
That control his once beloved birthplace.
Yet still he strives, battling the raging sea
That forms a barrier between a haunting past
And a glorious future.
Only a few small things need to be done.
A bloody stroke, severing great chains
And welcoming a beautiful freedom.
All seems so easy...

The heat, barely held at bay, fries brains.
Not even displeased murmuring can be heard.
We are the victims of boredom.
Glances out the windows, once filled with longing,
Now just empty stares, showing the true extent of the torture.
Class work, done in desperation, sits finished.
Thick novels lie beneath frustrated faces,
Propped up by exhausted arms and elbows.
An inappropriate noise pierces the oppressive gloom.
But doesn't even draw out a chuckle.
Humourous doodles of unpopular teachers,
Bring out a faint smile, better than nothing.
Pointless poems, like this,
Show the talent among us,
The drained soul of the bored.
As the time draws closer, slowly but surely.
The life returns to a few, a lone minority.
A subdued air covers us as we leave.
A small hint of fear clutches our hearts.
We aren't used to the outside world.
One of us breaks and head back,
Unable to be free, chained to the place.
We bear a warning to all.

You may not think you're perfect,
But you're perfect for me.

You notice what I try to hide.
Every little piece you reveal about yourself
Makes me want to know more.
But I know that may take time,
Time I'm more than willing to spend with you.
I love you.

The soft breeze blows his white hair,
Not dyed, but bleached by trauma,
And the sun reflects off pale skin.
Hard blue eyes survey the landscape
And a look of disdain mars a handsome face.
"I have returned."
A voice as ominous as Death
Spreads like a stain across the green fields.
Wasting no more time, he fixes his coat
And calmly hastens to carry out his purpose,
A dark vendetta fuelled by years of nurturing.
Deep footprints mark out a beginning,
An introduction to a bleak story.
