the fears that drive you
keeping you apart
the mask that you wear
I don my own
fading back from transformation
dancing the dance of oblivion
curiosity refocused and caution ignored
as I lure out the truth from the belly of the beast
no more fear to whisper patience
calm sending waves of anticipation
as the gates of obscurity fade
taking on the lion
with an anvil
Inspired by the weakness
the emotions locked behind the facade
a fortress of inadvertent action
leading to parasitic obligation
inferiority and loss of direction
motivation fails to find me
yet recklessness draws me forward
as I tempt forth the beast
Why should the glory be shared?
when the weaknesses could be exploited?
using pure logic and reason I could seek a better path
emotions get in the way
Raw powerful and changing emotions
that long to sting and bite
the flawed heart
and restrained mind
Boxes and lines adorn the cage
tatters and ruins adorn the body
as still more is asked
redrawn for conveni

His eyes pierce me
They see into my soul
I can barely think at all now
Bore into me
They draw me in deeper
As I long to be part of him
I crave their taste
Their soft sweet touch
Wishing for lingering kisses
A soft whisper
Into my very soul
His touches elicit loves hope
A deep timbre
Calling me to his side
Whispering wanton desires
Lost Love storyNo one loves me, it's okLost Love story in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I think about it everyday
Looking in the mirror, I see
A figment of what I want to be
Nothing truly there
No need to really care
Deep inside I fight the war
Of the heart that you tore
Battered and broken down
Look at my tattered gown
When the stars begin to die
That's when I'll finally cry
But only when there's nothing here
Will I answer you, my dear
For the words have died inside
Behind the mask, I'll always hide
As I change to prove myself
Find my place, my own wealth
I'll not look back to then
That story must reach it's end
Seeks youIt's me who seeks you outSeeks you in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You're never there about
I try so hard to catch your eye
I must be like an annoying fly
When our hearts converge as one
I long to bask in the rays of your sun
But it's me who has to track you down
The weakness in myself to drown
If I could entrance your gaze
My eyes invoke a special haze
I would try to draw you here
So that I could have you near
But the truth isn't what I want to see
So far from you stands me
Like the sun and the moon
Songs that sing a different tune
You and I are never chosen
Our emotions always frozen
We stare at each other from across the abyss
The timing we always seem to miss
Focused we stand enchanted still
By each others determined will
Our eyes seek out each other
But we pull away from one another

You have no need for it here
I don't want your heart
Don't need it
I don't want love
It hurts too much
You can take what you want
I'll give it freely
As long as you don't
I've felt them too severely
I refuse them
Look into my empty eyes
The fires gone out
the pieces of my heart on the floor
I dance about
smashing them to dust
I looked into the abyss of my soul
I came out on top
sometimes life is about letting go
even when you want to stop
I test my limits with my kiss
if I feel nothing I keep moving
but if an emotion should stir..
I'll walk away
That's a game I never want to play
if you're seeking someone with emotion
I suggest you head down the hall
as mine are blocked behind a wall
I don't want your love
I won't accept your heart
even if it's bleeding in front of me
your tears won't sway me
though the taste would intrigue
I'll keep the thorns wrapped around
the barbed wire protecting
I'll do what I have to
do my duties
Always waitingSummon stirred and calledAlways waiting in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I find myself among the fallen
dreaming songs into the night
I whisper by twilight
as the songs of the night
Pull me into their embrace
I wonder if I will see your face
Again into the night I run
Wondering just how long
I find the dreams quelling
Not sure if I will find you there
So I walk the path far away
When the night reaches to the dawn
I hope that you won't be too long
Dreaming into the whispered alleyway
Another whisper of a new day
Hoping still I wait
But it always seems too late
Still I realize it will come
The thing that I have been called from
The light will touch my face
I will be remembered by your grace
and then when the skies do shine
I will be found in time
So I will continue to wait
Not tempted by the weakness of fate
I am who I am and that will stay true
So I will always wait for you.
I amI found my heart on a spearI am in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Completely paralyzed by fear
Afraid to let anyone near
Pushing out all who were dear
I've placed it all in the past
No longer to do what is asked
The burdens that held me fast
I am freed from at last
I always knew how
I finally made that vow
I am stronger now
No more my back to bow
Those who seek a fight
Better be in the right
Or I'll burn you with my light
Best stay out of my sight
I am closing every door
Removing broken pieces on the floor
Resetting things in my core
Understanding forgotten lore
When next we meet
You will feel the heat
Feel free to take a seat
Your heart will skip a beat
No more shame
I am no longer tame
I have ended the game
It is all done by my name

truly nothing else left to gain
For the minds eye is but biased
Thoughts that scatter in the winds..
Winds that take away the cruelty of truth
Perhaps the winds that can burn the fire
are what I most desire
An undeserving fate for those who wait
Truly nothing left of creations hope
For those are left for ones with better chances
I've wasted behind false romances
The bias of another days dream
Lost or so it would seem
Numb to the coming of tomorrow..
An endI've given up on solaceAn end in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I've given up on hate
I've walked the last stretch
I don't believe in fate
When the tide turned
I was at the front
Wondering if I'd ever learn
I'd give anything to feel redeemed
I'd give anything to feel trust
It's too late for apologies
My heart has turned to dust
I've felt so much pain
listening to you politic
waiting for something to change
I've lost my will to continue
I've lost my will to fight for us
I've given up on this whole thing
Please don't make a fuss
When it's all said and done
you probably won't understand
it's always the same fight
I never want to feel love
I never want to feel pain
I never wanted this fight
Because neither of us will gain
We both lose in the end
the fighting tears us up
we're losing everything we were
I tried to be the one to compromise
I tried to be the one to care
I tried to do whatever it took
But you were never there
Let's end it peacefully
Let's walk away with dignity
Because there will be no tears in my eyes to see

Unhinge my thoughts
with the images
tucked under your blouse -
soft offerings of lace
that pull twilight's edge
wrapping my fingers
in silk stung knots
that unfasten buttons
and ripple your clothes
and leave me enthralled.
Unsettle my world
with the syllables
tucked under your tongue -
those sweet consonants and vowels
that lovers keep hidden,
stripping words down
to primal sounds
that chase down the dark,
and let my mouth wander
and trespass at will.

You know the havoc you wreak
with that bad girl tease
you keep up your sleeve -
a game where you wrap your tongue
around a cherry stem
and wrap the wicked ribbon of wanting you
around the swell of your hips,
a lush bloom rubbing blisters
against my imagination
and the white silk of your skirt
Your thoughts are too expensive
to be owned by this poor boy
with holes in his pockets
and a heart full of anarchy
who just wants one taste
of the trouble you wear
like a lodestar.

Dawn breaks night's promise,
its refrain haunting your lips
like music I once knew,
old love songs where couples
waltz across rosewood floors

the ruffle of skirts
skimming marble and sand
in rhythm with the stars.
You teach me the melody
in a crescendo of hands and hips,
your kisses the notes
trailing down the sheets -
a sonata I know by heart

A souless search to those in need to find someone who quells the deed,
Denied,refused feelings gone misused repress for a time to forgetting we knew.

Says she visits each of you everday,
Watching over you,lighting paths,showing the way.
I was shocked in Awe of what I did see,
Such innocence goodness and purity,
Sitting next to me and holding my hand,
Producing such a warm light in euphoric contentment I am.

To tell me our's is not to question why.
She promised a new day would arrive,
To live life right have faith,keep hope alive,
For love is there for all to see,
Try looking at things a bit differently.
So few can love so hard,so deep.
These are traits you must so keep,
So remember each time other's cause you pain,
When truth is found so much sweeter the gain.

This was my oasis my place of peace,
Now has become a place of grief,
If I knew the pain I would endure,
I take back every word,each verse,each lure.

The intimate desire found like fire in your eyes,
Created a lust to rival all ties.
When two lonely heartbeats join as one,
Only good things can happen thus from,
The dance erotic and slow has begun,
I want a romance to make me come Undone.

But when I awaken all turns to dust..a mirage~

She will fade from the pages but never from his mind she knows him too well

A taste of freedom,

seemingly out of reach.
If only I had wings,
to carry me across
the still waters,
to carry me away
from this dead life.
Tired of my feet
feeling parched earth,
I want to feel the grass,
see the trees,
smell the flowers.
I want to touch the sky
and break away.
Finally YoursWe've spent so much time...Finally Yours in Free Verse More Like This
so far apart,
longing for each other's touch,
waiting for any chance to talk,
worrying if the other was true,
wondering if our feelings were real.
So many lonely days and nights,
only able to speak through wires.
The sound of your voice,
makes my heart take wing,
and alleviates the darkness,
that which holds me in fear
each moment we're apart...
So many fears,
would you still want me?
when will we be together?
But all that fades away,
at this, the magic moment
we've waited for, so long.
No longer separated by thousands of miles.
Able to touch, to see, to hear
for ourselves at long last.
A precious kiss, a taste of your lips.
Everything I've wanted and more.
Now that I am,
EnoughStop, I've had enough.Enough in Open More Like This
Can't you see,

I'm a wreck,

My eyes should be black,
my teeth should be loose.
How much does it take,
to snap my ribs,
to break them like my heart?
How much can I take,
how many times can I shatter?
When will you stop,
when will you be done?
Why do you do this,
over and over and over again?
How can you hurt the one
who loves you the most?
I'm only human,
I look in the mirror.
How do I stop beating myself up?
When will enough be enough?
New Year's EveA black velvet canvas,New Year's Eve in Free Verse More Like This
stretched over twin hills.
Dark water below mirrors,
vibrant greens rivaling emeralds,
electric blues that mock sapphires,
fire reds shaming rubies.
Higher and higher,
whistles, pops and loud bangs,
fly up into the sky, exploding.
Lighting up the night with broad strokes
that linger for a moment,
then are gone...
replaced by the next.
Silver sparkles and shines,
while glittering gold shooting stars
reach the heavens,
never touching the earth.
A broad canvas,
lasting a moment in the sky,
and forever in our hearts.

This is hard to write, but I have to. There is a lot I need to get off my chest before it eats me alive. I know you won't read this, may never even see it. Even if I sent it to you...
For months, almost a year, of my life, I've given. My time, my heart, whatever you asked that was in my power to give. I've made time for you, gave you room in my heart. And at first, you seemed to as well. We talked for hours on the phone, online, everyday. When my cat died, you canceled your plans and spent time with me.
You've told me that you care about me, very much, that you're very fond of me. And when you're drunk, you tell me you love me. You tell me, "IloveyouImissyouIwishyouwerehere." But never when you're sober. Oh no. When you're sober, you hide everything behind this wall of almost smarminess. When you're sober, we're just friends with benefits. You tell me you can't say it, that if you do, you'll break. Well, you've already broken something. My heart.
You see, I let you li

tearing me apart.
from my own kind.
Once part of a mighty choir,
now a lonely solo
that no one hears.
My wings are tattered
from the earthly winds,
rough and grabbing,
not like the winds back home.
I miss the gentle caress
fanning my wings
under a loving sun.
The sun here is harsh,
burning my skin.
I long for the company
of familiar faces,
of familiar voices.
Here, I am utterly alone,
bereft of any comfort.
It's been eons.
Is that not long enough?
I beg of you,
may I please come home now?

Anything, other than this,

I once believed you cared,
almost believed you loved me.
Yet, no matter
what I give you,
what I do for you...
only results in a cold, barren smile,
that flat tone in your voice,
when you thank me.
I've tried to walk away,
I've tried to leave,
to find another,
someone who will love me,
as I long for you to do.
But when I do,
your silent tears break
You rob me of everything,
leaving me broken at your feet.
I am your humble slave,
tied by the chains upon my heart.
So, please, if you love me...
let me know...

Our song plays behind me,

The joy I felt,

Stolen moments, all alone,

They tried so hard,
wanting to barge in,
jealous of what we had.
Your arms around me,

Now, with my eyes closed,

I can still feel you,
I can still smell you.

In the darkIt was the complete and utter silence that I noticed first.In the dark in Short Stories More Like This
So quiet that it was unnerving to the point of the hairs standing up on the nape of my neck.
It is impossible to be this quiet.
There has to be a sound of some kind.
The wind in the trees.
Insects at their nightly rituals.
But there was nothing.
It was making me uneasy to the point that I hadn't realized I had been holding my breath.
Then came the darkness.
So encompassing that it overwhelmed my senses.
I was blind in the dark.
Deaf in the silence that my sense of smell was going into overdrive.
There was a scent, but it was impossible to recall where I had smelt it before.
It was not an aromatic scent but more of a instinctly pungent odour that had me wrinkling my nose.
Hard to describe.
It was actually similar to rotting garbage but sweeter and warmer.
Sounds weird I know but in this icy cold darkness the smell made me feel warm.
Putting one foot in front of the other I started to take small, steal
The PastThe Past in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Skeletons of yesterday kept closeted
behind doors that lead to no-where
Life's cobwebs framing pictures holding
sneers on the faces of days gone by
Darkened corridors lit with waxen candles
dripping like festering sores
Ever mocking echoes in drafty attics
left to howl within the wind
The silence ever beckoning
giving pallor to one's skin
Creating a chill that seeps within the bones
casting frosty images in the mind
The musty smell of yesterday with
no promise of tomorrow
Speaking of memories pressed within the
walls crying out to be set free
Wasted moments and tattered dreams written
on parchment stuffed in forgotten drawers
Subtle outlines of faded images seen
fleetingly in the mirrors of the past
Damnation and trepidation mixed with the
loss of every generation
Hidden in the shadows and alcoves of time
seeking forgiveness and rebirth

Oh how I hate what they do to me.
How can I be alive and still breathing when I am in so much pain.
This is not me all the time, in fact I am just like you.
I walk, talk, see and breathe the same air.
But inside I am a twisted, broken mess of emotion.
Looking for help but afraid to ask. I cannot ask. Was always told to deal with my problems by myself.
I laugh nervously as I recollect snippets from my past. Never praised but always made aware of my mistakes, and they were many. Not because I was inept but because I was afr
Remembering Still..Remembering Still.. in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Take all despair, the fear and pain
Place it midst drops, of soft summer rain
Draw a deep breath and hold it within
Cleansing the soul of all mortal sin
Seeing with eyes, the beauty serene
Of moments once gone, and yet to be seen
Dew holds the beginning, of each new day
To be felt as we're blessed in every way
Simple will warm the purest of heart
Greed shows no finish, to what we may start
Temper the want, the may and the please
See what is pure, with hands we may seize
Mistakes of our yesterdays, we leave behind
existing today with kin and our kind
Forging a life, in a future to shine
A journey as seen as yours and as mine..
Thoughts..The voices echoed repeatedly inside my head.Thoughts.. in Short Stories More Like This
A muffled drawl of innuendoes and ever mounting confusion.
Splintered words shuffled amidst gaps of sanity and YET: I still felt insane
A darkness unlike any I had ever witnessed before, shadowing my reason and leaving me cowering like a beaten child.
I cursed my life and all the hidden complexities, and still I believed that maybe one day I would feel alive again.
Each day dragged me through relentless flurries of burnt-out scenario's, then placing me within a deep abyss of mindless fear.
NOT of the unknown but of what I already knew..
As humans we have the ability to be ALL or NOTHING....our choice
BUT with that strength also comes the weakness of completely giving up.
Shaking my head as if to dislodge the cottonwool feeling that had encased my thoughts.
A feeling so powerful that it had me at its mercy.
It gave me a release but came with no answers.
Likened to nails on a chalkboard.
A grating existence of my everyday.

Shadowed not in night, but day
To lead me to a better way
It beats so steadily,

Compassion etched in every thud
Bound by faith and tied in blood
It filters, the good and bad
To peruse with trust and see whats had
To gain, to give and share this life
In sharing pain and avoiding strife
To you, I give myself
Of honesty and boundless wealth
The purest form of friendship true
This gift from me, I give to you..
Just WORDS..Words have no meaning unless they are heard correctly and dealt with in the spirit they were given.Just WORDS.. in Articles & Interviews More Like This
That is why we must think before we speak and be exactly sure of what we intend them to mean.
They can slice like a knife and leave a person writhing in pain.
Placing useless innuendoes amongst words can also draw misconception from a seemingly innocent conversation.
Sometimes I think it may have been better if all humans were born mute and learnt to use their body to portray emotion.
Hands for expression.
Lips for sensitivity .
Body language is the truest form of who we are and it cannot hide what we are really feeling.
Try though we may, how many times have our eyes shown our happiness or our sadness.
How often have we backed away when we are unsure of another person, be it in mistrust or just incapatability.
I know I am guilty of inadvertent facial expressions when I disagree with anothers opinion, or when something does not meet with my own expectations.
The Who of Me..DAMN that I have become one of the mindless many,The Who of Me.. in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
when all I strived for was wrapped midst the connotation of the word different
GURGLES of self-loathing and the loss of what was me,
scented with magnolia and the aged decay of dissatisfaction
HECKLED laughter fills my mind and places me in oblivion,
leaving me frayed and beyond recognition
TORTURED knowledge that I could of been more, or even maybe less
spiralling me into never-more and forgetting the solidity of my life
Ohhh do I sound too harsh?
Does my time here seem wasted and so forlorn?
SCREAMS of pity and the wailings of discontentment echo through my soul
leaving me deaf and mute, yet in a place of peace and understanding
WASH me with the tears of who I was
and wrap me warm, in the who I am today
THEY are no different, just shaded with a calmer light
JEALOUSY and the cursed ENVY of yesterday will rot my soul and leaden my heart
each tick of my clock has given me a memory and guided me down a path,
be it of sweetness like honey
Falling UnderFalling Under in Free Verse More Like This
Would you see me, if I was standing right in front of you?
A broken doll with her hair askew, and no reason to smile
Torn remnants of days gone by, in a flurry of wishful thinking
Plied together with the blood of my tears and no where to run
So many words within my head, but silence reigns and pity is scarce
Too much hurt tainted with insane laughter, in attics of deserted lives
with ghostly hearts scattered on the floor
Would you hold me close, if I was standing right in front of you?
Naked in my emotions, with my soul bare in its transparency
Seeking love not lust in all its duplicity, hiding behind sordid lies
Time will pass as slowly as a sigh, or as quickly as a tear, leaving
in its wake a mournful shell of inadequacy
I am falling under and I cannot breath
My throat constricted, leaving me unable to utter a sound
Would you say goodbye, to me if I was standing right in front of you?
Watching as I walk away, not turning to look back to where I once stood
A shadow falls upon the grou
