No Matter What Keep OnIt comes; I hate it; I want it gone.
It lies to me; I like it; I realize it's lying;
my world crashes down; I want it gone.
That sequence keeps repeating,
all the while I'm waiting
for this universe to throw a miracle
Why cry for things in the back of me?
Why go moping on about things
hoping for sympathy?
Why dive into infantile thinking

Yes, the fact is I put myself here,
and it hurts to see where I could be,
and where I have to go.
Is sadness and regret the same thing?
There's no point in having this pain,
but I can't exactly push a button
and have it exit from inside.
And knowing the cause of my hurt,
can't make it poetic how I feel.
I'm in a crib right now
and tears are close to coming out.
Just do better,
because tomorrow exists.
I have to keep on
no matter how easy,
and less stressful it looks
to give in.
I say to myself in times of hardship
that I won't stop;
even if I fail every time, don't quit.
I'll say it even when

it's a hue of ravens as opposed to sunlight,
and though the morning brought much delight
I can sense my soul now taking flight
with wings I can't feel,
but they're all the same real.
And just like day and just like night
I can have darkness, but can also be bright.
The phenomenal moon rises the tides
as I try to get off the roller coaster ride
of all the universes in my mind.
Often it's scattered the path that I take,
not knowing the difference between real or fake.
For a wasteful dreamer such am I;
it is what it is don't ask me why,
but if you must, an answer I can give
that it's an unfair life and world in which we live,
for I never asked for the crying, just asked for the tissue;
I never asked for this drama to be my issue.
I cannot escape my dreams,
and you'll never hear my screams
that bring me to the ground
till hope comes around.
But to open my eyes to reality's face
would take me to an uncharted place.
I'd be scared to go,

when the mockingbird sleeps,
I for a second wanted to weep.
At such a time,
where night doesn't blind,
I'm scared of what I may leave behind.
At such a time,
seeing closed and open doors,
I ask myself "what was it all for?"
At such a time,
thinking of the sky,
and how I don't want to say goodbye.
At such a time,
the moon in nude
serenades on my solitude.
At such a time,
with dreams falling like stars,
I say "come back to my love wherever you are."
At such a time
hope comes slow to me and I to it,
but we find each other and there we sit.
Hope wants to come stay,
But the words "go away"
emit from my soul;
I know it's so cold.
I want to force things into place instead of letting it flow,
I now look and see honesty starting to go,
because I say to the truth "get out of my mind!"
but is not the truth what I say I want to find?
Yes, I want that with me; I want to be true,
but I just don't want to give up on you!

The day the sun stopped hiding behind the clouds, and shined on us.
The day it was you and me, and nothing but the blue skies and serenity.
The day you smiled at me,
I smiled back, and our worlds became closer to each others.
In the end I don't know what I did to your life,

Why did I let it all end the way it did?
Why didn't I do anything more?
I'll search for you everywhere,
and when I find you there will be no more regrets.
Until then stay yourself.
I will find you and love you, hopefully in autumn again.

And even when I awaken, you still belong in the deepest part of my heart.

It allowed her reason to stall
To keep him waiting at the bar
To put off leading another one home
She curled in on herself

Their voices echo off these hallowed
cold flesh of mine
I can hear them
and I know your not in the crowd
waiting for me to pick myself up
or cleaned up
But God the pain!
The workings of his punishments
Punishments of love
and so here I am
Shattered on the concrete
Too far gone
and forgot to tell you to catch me
and waiting for you to realize
and scared you'll never notice
scared you won't dull the pain
How could I be so stupid

Star CatcherIn twilight,Star Catcher in Free Verse More Like This
he walks along the sidewalk
and he tells me he catches stars
he dips his hand in his pocket
cups them so i can have a look
so i can see that there's nothing there
But every so often
as we walk
his body slacks in a way
as if an invisible weight has fallen upon him
and he holds his hands palms up
as if he is holding something fragile
and he puts it away in his pocket
i wonder self-conciously
is he trying to change the subject
is he so desperate to resort to madness
can he not stand to listen to me
and again he tries showing me
with perfect delicacy
what he holds in his palms
i see nothing
look he says,

all the colors
all the shades
she coats every room
with just a smirk
Her wings hold
all the wind
all the impression
she moves you
with just a flutter
He's known her
the power behind that flesh
all the strength
behind that smirk
He tells you now
with an outstretched arm
that he's seen her
the pain she can inflict
he falls for you now
just by saying
angels are dangerous

I'm so sorry
I've been numb
All I can feel is hands
Restraining my arms
Holding me back
back from the air
From the only thing I can't escape from
And I'm still screaming apologies
And I guess in a sick way
Glad there's something holding onto me
the only thing that does
And it's there
when I put it down
when I push it down
when I pull it down
I just want it to love me
than a hold

You can't hang up. Not yet...I don't want to never hear your voice again. I cant not hear it in the back of my head.
You can't say you don't know. Not anymore...because I'm not over you...Not yet.
The PianistFingers gusting o'er the keys,The Pianist in Free Verse More Like This
How sweet the music sounds
That tinkles from the keyboard
And just how the mind surrounds.
The strongest heartfelt soul cry
That echoes without a word
Will cause the ache deep in the chest
Long after the last note is heard.
Oh, let this bliss endure,
Let it wash away my pain,
And let these tears that fall from my eyes
Be like a cleansing rain.
This sweet intoxication
Will never be the same,
Each haunting chord will bear away
A different part of my shame.
Sweet and sultry siren,
Your torture I'll endure
Until you take your final bow,
So lovely and demure.
I'll not forget this meeting
I've had with this, your kind,
I just hope that I will find one day
Your song's gone from my mind.
First KissAt first the blushing rose does mournFirst Kiss in Free Verse More Like This
It's colour on my cheek,
It's hard to breathe as tightness
Squeezes my ribs until they creak.
My heart is beating far too loud,
Why can't he hear the sound
As he invades my private space
And with arms, me does surround?
And then his face is closing in,
His breath gusts 'cros'd my face
And though my knees are shaking,
I'm stuck here in my place.
So soft his lips are gracing mine,
Emotion is conveyed,
And through my closing eyes I feel
My whole life I've betrayed.
I want to shyly pull away,
Oh, this I just can't face,
And should someone come barging in,
No way could I keep grace.
But I can't turn away right now,
There's no way I could go,
Not only would I hurt him here,
But my own pain would surely show.
So what if I am insecure,
So what if I'm not you.
So what if I won't fade away?
I've proven that I'm not blue.
And though this moment's awkward,
And though I'm as red as a balloon,
I'll endure this torture
That I know will end too soon.
Broken SoulTeardrops slowly crawling down the glass,Broken Soul in Free Verse More Like This
Fog rising to hide the rest of the world,
Misty grey eyes staring at nothing,
One trembling hand over a painful heart.
Dewdrops beaded all over the pane,
Casting precious rainbows over the one
Swallowed by darkness, untouched by light,
One shallow breath following the last eternally.
Water pearls skewing the reality beyond the window,
Twisting it into a reality far different
Than what can be witnessed from the outside looking in
On another broken soul.
Sailor's DueSo deftly does the ocean roll away,Sailor's Due in Free Verse More Like This
The silver surface mirrors breaking day,
The newly woken bird stirs into flight,
It's beating wings do honour vanquished night.
The slow and gentle lapping at the rocks
Does laugh at tempest fierce, oh how it mocks,
And though the sailor's warning skies are red,
The peace does lure them all out from their bed.
Against the paling sky a figure strolls
And on the beach he daily pays his tolls;
His footprints in the sand to pay his debt
That sun and sky and moon cannot forget.
The crashing of the waves, the passing time
More sour than the juice of greenest lime
Cannot wipe away the darkest sin
That he committed just so he could win.
The pealing of the bells, his opening eyes
In plea to vengeful heavens, clouded skies,
He pauses at the brink a sprig to launch
As he recites the names of comrades staunch.
The circling sea-bird high lets loose a scream,
The man does stir, waking from a dream,
And slowly walks away, his day to face
In restitution for his comr
WarAt first a line is drawnWar in Free Verse More Like This
In sand, its flow disturbed,
And a reminder stark
Of the minds of men perturbed.
The fateful die is cast,
How many lives are lost
In battles hot and plenty
With no time to find the cost?
A pale face in a tower
Looks out to see the dawn,
Her corn-blonde hair so long
It just might reach the lawn.
Or is it for the girl
That's sleeping in the tower
Enrobed with thorny briar
That resists so many a power?
Perhaps the battle lines
Are made against some devil
That threatens all the crops
And whose defeat will make us revel.
A monster to be slain
Should now unite our cause,
Though when the fight is won,
We'll kill our allies without pause.
So many reasons do we find
To shed the blood of others,
A different colour, race or creed
Could never be our brothers.
We care not about what's right or wrong
When we go off to kill,
For a little harmless genocide's
Enough to cure every ill.
Broken CrownJack and Jill went up the hill,Broken Crown in Free Verse More Like This
Though who sent them, I still don't know,
To fetch a pail of water
In the midst of winter when the ice was thick.
I saw them go with a worried heart,
The hill was slick and steep,
Such children, just trying to do what was asked
Despite all the risk in store.
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
Dying the white snow to red,
And Jill came tumbling after,
Though her hurts weren't all that bad.
I rushed to the side of my darling child
Who was quiet as if just asleep,
And the tears all well up unbidden
As the courtyard fell silent again.
Seven Deadly Sins - LustThe fell, wicked breathSeven Deadly Sins - Lust in Free Verse More Like This
Of separation is falling
On the back of my neck,
Making me shy and flinch.
I desperately don't want
To say my goodbyes,
So I'll hide here in your arms
For another day.
At first the heat
Of your summer kisses
Kept me warm wherever I roamed,
And your blue eyes
Filled me with a burning desire
That I'd never known before.
I was sure that this was
Love as true as the sea.
But then you shook my world,
My very being, right down to my core.
You couldn't believe in me,
Nor I, you. I saw through
The smoke of the raging fire
And was warded with the
Bitter wind of contempt
That blew from our wedding rings.
How could I have been such
A callow fool those years ago?
How could I have chained myself
To the bow of a sinking ship?
How could I have made the mistake
Of choosing you for a lifelong companion
While my eyes were made blind
By the bright fires of lust?
Moonlight RainbowAs I walked out one Sunday night,Moonlight Rainbow in Free Verse More Like This
I was set upon by a pelting rain.
There was, of course, no house in sight,
No refuge from the stinging pain.
But as sudden as the storm had come,
It was that swift in its depart,
And standing there I was left dumb,
Upon looking up, I had to start.
For hanging there, amidst the dark
A sparkling rainbow had appeared,
The moonlight o'er at my back a spark
To make these vivid colours weird.
I watched in holy silence calm
As my world around did close,
The feelings that flowed down, a balm
That thrilled from head down to my toes.
The red was of the youngest rose,
Sweet cherries on my tongue,
And orange was the warmth that grows
With each new morning sung.
Soft yellow was the light through glass,
Candlelight upon the page,
And vivid green was youth and class,
New buds amidst the springing rage.
True blue tugged at my heart strings,
Remembering those I lost,
And indigo was the royal things
That long ago kissed frost.
And in this rush of senses
I scarce knew wh
ExodusWith trembling hands we search around,Exodus in Free Verse More Like This
Our fingers probing broken ground
For crumbs of our immortal soul
That we've forsaken as our toll
For crossing to the promised land
Across the sea of arid sand
And 'neath a bridge of ocean blue
Where we did witness something true.
A darkness clusters all around,
It muffles all but direst sound
And chills us all down to the bone
As we do stumble o'er the stone.
We lost our way so long ago,
No way to head amidst the snow
And static whine that girds our mind
And bids us to leave all behind.
And in the darkness burns a light
That helps illuminate the plight
That we do find ourselves within,
The obsidian that marks our sin
Is open now and on display
And there's no time to get away
From those we love and those we fear
For that final edge is just too near.
On bended knee, a prayer, a light
To guide us as we onward fight
To rise above a ruby tide
And find a safer place to hide
From the burning brand that lashes out
And causes us, as one, to shout
Word KeeperSo nervously my fingers twitch,Word Keeper in Free Verse More Like This
Imagining the fatal switch
That giving up does bring to mind
And stealthily does start to bind
My thoughts, my heart, all into one
In dark that never sees the sun.
The world around just seems so grey
And woefully I rue the day
That ever I was born to be
As I ponder oft if I'll be free
Before the moon does cease to glow
And all Earth's rivers cease to flow.
A foreign thumping in my skull
Does lend itself the nerves to dull
And walk me through another day
While mimicking a norm display.
I wonder gently at this power
That gets me through another hour.
And though I think I'd like to die,
I'm strong enough to know that I
Could never do such fateful things
No matter what the future brings;
More of the same, a different place,
I shall not perish in this race.
So what, I ask, am I to do?
I must in mine own self be true.
In values that for now are lost
I place more value than their cost,
Remembering that if I falter
I'll have more than my life to alter.
