I've got nothing left at all, nothing left to give."
I close the envelope softly, seal it wish a kiss,
Turn to look the other way, and wait for my dismiss.

Her cry, filled with pain.
Where is he?
Where did he go?
Didn't I see him? Just a minute ago?
He was here, and now he's gone.
And now a thought begins to dawn....
He's left her, he's moved on.
She loved him, he loved her too.
Or so she thought, and in her mind, a plan begins to brew.
She'll get back at him, oh yes!
She will, she'll make him pay.
She'll even kill.
He took her heart.
She took her life.
And now that man has lost his wife.
He didn't leave her, he hadn't moved on.
He was too late....and now she's gone.
Pitter Patter goes the rain.
And now his cry is filled with pain.

Am no longer a whole.
There is nothing more.
My life was tore.
I watch everyone around me.
And I watch them and see.
That their full of happiness.
While I stand here staring emotionless.
I clench my fist and let a tear roll down this dead face.

Just siting here like I don't exists, murdered by a deadly word.
No one notices that I hide in shame.

From all the tears and pain.
From all the blood from the vein.
No one wants to be around me.
They leave me be.

After awhile you lose everything.
All alone on the swing.
I guess no one loves someone who's not whole.
I guess you can't even love a broken soul.

A poet's broken words.Most people don't even knowA poet's broken words. in Free Verse More Like This
what a poet is nowadays.
It's not someone who writes poetry,
but someone with the ability
to create beautiful things
with pain and hate them.
I traded my soul for letters,
that I later transformed to words,
together they wrote out all my pain
but I'm starting to miss my soul.
All I have left is these broken w o r d s
and I wish I could call myself a poet
but to hate something beautiful,
before you have to create it.
How can you write when your words are broken
and your soul is missing?

She ran through the maze of dark corridors that her sick and twisted mind (as she described it) represented.
She felt so lost feeling the anger taking control over her sanity. If she ever was sane, she couldn't remember it, and she probably didn't like it either. Even though all this madness was killing her slowly there was a part of her twisted self that enjoyed it, the pain, the fear, the anger

All this people telling her what to and what not to do, society reduced to do's and don'ts. A society where don'ts were the only thing that kept her happy, or alive, but she couldn't contradict society. No, nobody contradicts society.
All she had where the voices telling her to go for it, but don'ts were don'ts for a reason or two. They hurt other people.
Oh, but the voices, those sweet voices that claimed to love her so much were selfish, as

A Poet's DiseaseWriting as to blankly curseA Poet's Disease in Free Verse More Like This
Time spent not to reimburse
Drifting away to another land
Gripping a creator in your hand
Inked symbols of creation
Softly scribbling pen rotation
A tension of bleak high
Think like gravity to defy
Written by a vague person
May curiosity not worsen
Pupils shift to heavy sleep
Thoughts through the tool seep
Written by spits of rage
Smudged emotion on every page
Breathing heavy to slow
Words escape not to know
Visualize in your mind
But words are to not find
Great feelings of deep regret
Eyes masked by brow sweat
A dark poet no longer sees
Instead sickened by disease
Overtakes hands to twist
But the writer must persist
Death is crawling to the brain
Ground gripping by a heavy chain
Hands blackened by ink abuse
Wearing a sharing open noose
The diseased poet drops his grip
While ink seeps out from his lip
Disease poet can't finish his work
He has eyes of inked murk

or is that too,
the galaxy won't tell
its mouth has long gone dry,
leaving my page blank

And swallowed her whole
then he spat out her glittering bones

I bury my face in a book,
Hoping it'll be the gateway,
Into another world.
When you look in my eyes,
My gaze dances by,
Afraid to reveal,
The heart of my soul.
You're puzzled by my silence,
You don't understand it,
But we both know,
That there's more to my silence.
I'm the one they call shy,
A person of few words,
And even fewer friends,
Observing life differently
A three letter word,
Too short a description,
To explain what goes on,
Within my head.
Alone is a welcome state,
Silence my best friend,
Literature is my key,
Imagination my soul.
You who aren't shy,
The maze of my mind,
Can't hear my thoughts.
An obscure face,
That's always downcast,
I pass through the crowd,
It's not that I don't like it,
I just can't bear not being heard,
Or being misunderstood,
Which you so often do.
Raised in eager revelation,
But you never hear,
As you laugh at a friend's joke.
That's why I'm shy,
My nature by instinct,

Autumn DanceThe leaves swayed,Autumn Dance in Free Verse More Like This
And the fairies were dancing,
An autumn dance,
Upon the frost,
On the threshold of winter.

Among the stars,
Carrying crimson lullabies,
But still, the fairies were dancing.
The harvest moon,
A hunter's moon,
Bloody with toils,
Of the world's woes,
Gleamed from tattered rags of cloud.
Yet the fairies danced,
In winter's clasp,
The immortal court,
Those heartless, soulless, beings.
No earthly tie,
Could keep them bound,
Pass below their feet,
As they go merrily dancing.
A bitter wind chased,
Ghosts of leaves away,
Trails of rime left in its wake,
While mourned the darken'd world,
Of winter's cold embrace,
Can you see the fairies dancing?

Lost CemeteriesWhere do they bury the bodies,Lost Cemeteries in Free Verse More Like This
Of those who were killed in war?
What cemetery's walls are big enough,
To hold the decaying corpses within?

Once scarred ground grows again.
Painful reminders soon cease to sting,
As memory's clutch starts to ease.
No one remembers the cause for war,
Only grass grown graves exhibit the chafe.
