At First SightAt First Sight
Love at first sight
Gives you a right
To cross the street with eyes shut wide
For having fun
Just to hand in hand come undone
Chest light with glee
Give smiles for free
On your affection's spending spree
For each sweet crime
You find a rhyme
Your only judge remains the time

Midnight paints the whole world black
Angel's wings as well as lies
You get all in one pack
That my restless hand supplies
Warm avalanche of my hair
Curtain to make vision blur
Forbids audience to stare
At where secrets now allure
You stay quiet, baby, hush
Just surrender to my lips
Tonight there's no need to rush
When I hold on to your hips
From my tongue slip wordless rhymes
Let them slide across your skin
I'll taste you a thousand times
From your thighs up to your chin
Although sometimes I am rough
And my nature makes me tease
Of that you can't get enough
Moan with pain, then sigh with ease
When you suffer, I carress
To relieve the aching need
That you so sweetly confess
So I'll give you what you plead
Blisters And BlissBlisters And BlissBlisters And Bliss in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Though city lights show pavement gleaming
In hidden corners tears are streaming
A broken heart to purify
Heretic thoughts tempt righteous falling
While sin viciously keeps on strolling
Some twisted truth to testify
Each day new hand the old replaces
And soon the crowd counts thousand faces
All of them turned the other way
Who is to blame for rage tormenting
That seems to never be relenting,
Dreams those don't make it through the day?
Though world's dark shadows keep deceiving
To save yourself don't stop believing
In word that carved in gold stays plain
And like an angel's wing defending
Brings bliss, hope and peace neverending
Love makes sun shine despite the rain

Or maybe it's another boy
Who offers you a scared gaze
From the mirror
Do you still wish truth's voice to sound clearer?

Your fingertips imprinted
On plaster of my skin
Your curves upon mine tilted
About to commit sin
Room enveloped by darkness
Only your pale skin shines
As you cover my bareness
Arms become clinging vines
If my body is temple
Then may you be my priest
You, boy who's lips now tremble
Inside him roaring beast
So let your prayers tender
Now echo in my ears
To your sword I surrender
Quench thirst with virgin tears
Gathered in silken goblet
Yearn's my reason for crying
Get drunk with every droplet
Of boiling holy wine
I feel your pillars harden
Right after they touch ground
Exploring secret garden
For treasures to be found
Be careful with tongue drawing
An illegible map
Of pure snow that you're thawing
In country of my lap
That river harsh might drown you
Or make you hide in cave
Where warriors drop their armour
And master becomes slave

Ubiquitous sense of failure
Drills holes into what was soul
Content, tranquil waterfall
That swallowed both ships and sailors
Moments of true pain brought panic
An acute need to restore
What once was, will be no more
Blurs the simplest truth's reflex
Leaving blistered faith perplexed
For false prophet's recognition
Arrows wasted on star chasing
Just bare hands for self-defense
Sinner's zeal's the most immense
Eye-corners with wrinkles gracing

While hungry wolves and fingers prowl

When lonely wind keeps weeping

One time after another
First like my lover

Can't you see how your fate with mine does blend?
To perish upon your petals I crave
This world for me hasn't a sweeter grave

Fear that in time nothing remains the same
Each crack and scratch brings me deliberation
Revives the longing my face to disclaim
My silence echoes with reverberation
Warns me from merciless retaliation
Of world that when beauty's gone forgets names

There lies a promise dormant
So know that I'm blooming for you, just in all secrecy

Once she has done the job

Where she will have you begging on your knees
Her dirty tricks
Will make you long for her lust and affection
Which she will give until she captures another soul
And then you will have to face the music of rejection

With a smirk upon his face
And lets out an evil laugh
As he watches you die
A slow and painful death
Under his tightened rough grasp
And devilishly evil pair of eyes
He drags you around
By a pair of strings
Attached to your arms and legs
Pulling them sharply
To remind you that he's the boss
And you're his puppet slave
Till the end of eternity
He finds cruel enjoyment
Out of seeing you suffer
He's hungry for cash
And willing to do whatever it takes
To get his hands upon it
Even if that means using you wrongly
Until your final breath
He believes he is the master of all puppets
Able to enslave any soul
And get them to do his every wish and command
But he will soon find out he was wrong
When his world comes crashing down around him
As his puppet slave gets the better of his evil ways
And breaks free from the strings of death

Just stay true to yourself

Today I ran down crowded sidewalks, shoes in hand, not returning glances. Silent questions hang heavy in the air. They watch me as I make my way down the street. I zig-zag past trash bins and over recycle bins. The hurdles of city life.
Today I cut across lawns. Made my way through parking lots. Past schools, silent, empty for the summer. Ran past yards with inflatable pools and grills waiting to be lit. Through hopscotches drawn in chalk. Pink dust clinging to my feet.
Today I ran barefoot. Ignoring snide remarks and odd stares. I just ran. Leaving ever

When he flits across the ceiling in the night
A most magical scene as he dances back and forth
And he's never lacking elegance in flight
As he swoops and twirls to a song all his own
A song, of which, us humans will never hear
And at first glance he appears to dance alone
A closer look reveals that something's there
Once he had a partner he loved with all his heart
And when she passed she left a piece behind
For their souls could not bear to ever have to part
So she left her shadow there for him to find
For this serenade's designed not for one but two
It's a tribute for the lovers on this night
Once again they have danced, as lovers often do
Souls entwined together in their flight
They, then, made one last circle around the room
Wings fluttering they flew side-by-side
It seems the sun's rays that morning came too soon
He gave a bow, settled down, and died
Sometimes I lay awake in the middle of the night
Watching shadows as they dance back

Yes, you'll remember me.
When I'm gone you'll remember me. Every morning you'll wake and see that empty space. And at night you'll lay awake, staring for hours. Every second you so much as glimpse that spot you'll remember. And for the rest of your life, with however many number of empty ceilings, my memory will haunt you.

Her voice is a Mozart sonata,
and for her the word perfect is an understatement.
We need sunglasses for the height of her radiance.
No one will look away;
she's cursed to be in the gaze of thousands.
But then my heart falls when I wake up from that dream.
Yes, none of that was real,
and pretending it is
I must change.
I turn the pages of my diary,
in hopes that writing in it will be
like a purification,
to everything that is within that I want to be without.
What I then wish for is to go on as myself,
and to see everything and everyone,
not with rose colored glasses,
but just as something with value;
in a word the truth.
The true beauty of life
is being who you are,
and being happy with who you are,
also to smile and mean it,
so smile and be your own sunshine.
JourneyThe journey is so much longerJourney in Free Verse More Like This
when you don't use your heart as a map, I say, while
traveling down your heavenly-rich brown hair.
Are you listening? or maybe you already knew that,
not surprising, but either way I'm filled up
with the most beautiful bliss, and you're to blame;
you and your smile that you're barely ever without;
hard to believe there is so much power in a simple facial expression,
but it transforms us inside, like the beauty in an autumn leaf.
Take me to where that smile comes from;
take me to where happiness walks the blue skies,
and kisses the light.
Be the heart and the map of my journey――
you're already the beauty of it――and I'm bound to
along the way see a lot of sunsets and cherry blossom trees,
that's just like you isn't it?
Always Be TrueThe truth may be painful,Always Be True in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
the truth may bring sorrow,
tears may be shed,
and hearts may be hollow.
But it will carry you, it's a healing hand,
though in pain you have fallen,
with purpose you'll stand.
You'll see the path you were truly meant to take,
at that point you'll be free of all things fake.
You'll give birth to miracles,
you'll see gold and silver things,
the nightingale was once crippled,
but the truth healed its wings.
That's what I found....
The most meaning one can have in a night,
the sky was dark but around her was light,
the light of truth that The Kingdom had sent,
to ensure that her future was very well spent.
She had it so easy,
being lost in another place,
she lived so much a lie
she didn't recognize her own face.
That's why this night had come to pass,
she saw herself in truth at last.
Her heart in misery,
lamentation with regrets,
and afraid of what will happen when the new day sets.
The sky not big enough to hold her tears,
crying all night but nobody hears,

won't be long for sun to intervene.
Her face as wet as morning dew,
she's so beautiful yet never knew.
Pity and regret make haven in her mind,
from a past that she can't just toss back behind.
Even the songbirds couldn't spare her a whistle,
and every rose she picked up seems to bear a thistle
She now sits in the yard
and tries very hard,
to keep it together
in chilled fall weather.
Sometimes things empower her, and the darkness screams,
wanting to snatch her soul from her and devoid her of dreams.
Yet, realizing in time light shall break out
she faces her fears and erases her doubt.
Knowing Heaven will put her heart back in its place,
she basks in the sunlight that falls on her face.
To Heaven she thankfully gave a bow,
it's not what she did then, but what she does now.
And what better truth is there by far,
than to know that you can come as you are!
She's been weak for so long, now she's ready for strength,
she will walk her path regardless of length.
Thoughts Around A SunsetWill I go down like the sun?Thoughts Around A Sunset in Free Verse More Like This
Will I go anywhere?
Something about seeing the sun going down
makes me feel like I should feel a certain deepness;
there's just so much strength and meaning to it.
It gives me that tough love, telling me I need
to be stronger; it makes me want to break all the walls in my way;
it tells me I can but it won't be anywhere near easy, tough love again.
These are feelings and fears inside of me,
but I don't know why hard work scares as well as inspires me.
Must not have anything dishonest here right now.
I feel a change or a want for a change from
the beauty and value of this sunset;
I want it and fear it so much, but I know I want it more!
The thought of being beautiful like a sunset
inspires me and makes me nervous simultaneously,
but the fear is not huge;
I can get rid of it by thinking of the greatness of what's on the other side,
Though I can never permanently exterminate it.
What's with this fear of change anyway?
I should be afraid of staying at thi

turning into angelic stars in the sky,
just because they believe they can.
The sun has risen,
and has said hello to the new summer day,
and sings a melody for the clouds.
The clouds tell the sun that they dream of going to heaven,
and the sun wishes then luck.
Butterflies soaring to their flowered paradise,
not knowing how many eyes stare at their beauty,
not knowing the hearts they've placed in everyone.
A blue amethyst waterfall,
made by the angels' hopes and dreams,
shares its cascading liquid pureness to all.
The emotion of love,
caressing everybody's soul,
bringing out true value of life.
A little girl who watches it all, and smiles,
because she knows it's all for everyone

and reach so far into my mouth and yank out all the lies.
Heal me with your sunlit heart,
be my embracing wind,
and give me all the love you can
without committing sin.
Have more gleam than the morning,
be whiter than any dove,
be all the stars I count in the sky
as we confess our love.
In this moment in your arms, my severed heart finds rest,
and all the things that meant to kill flee back into their nest.
That special night I'll always have, where I felt nobody but you;
I swear for the first time I saw your eyes, looking at mine so heavenly blue.
You are the ocean's crashing waves,
you are the breezy Autumn days,
you are a smile that never fades,
who finds me when I've lost my way.
Even when the tears fall,
and often I'm trapped in my mind,
serenity will serenade,
because you stay by my side.
Love is eternal, and pain does cease,
under Autumn weather, love was released.
You are my safe, you are my meaning,

warmth and coldness of a sad song,
but I don't know if it has the stars.
"You're beautiful." "Lies!"
But why do I let it eat me away?
Why is this beauty complex higher than the mountains?
It's the failing battle to get rid of it
that's really the worse part.
So many people I couldn't do it for..........
Maybe I haven't gotten enough sunlight,
or did enough exercise,
but maybe this feeling is an unavoidable truth
that comes to me every once and a while.
"You're beautiful." "No I'm not; I don't see it!!!"
"There's a lot of things you don't see."
Paper magazines of people I'll never be;
delusions in my head of people I'll never be;
it can be hard to see clearly through it all,
like a path with millions of forks in it.
It's unlikely this poem will have a happy ending,
but.....I want a smile on my face...I don't want to "accept" who I am;
I sometimes think the word "accept"(depending on the situation)
carries pain with it.
Come BackBefore my chipped wings disintegrate, they do sob.Come Back in Free Verse More Like This
The path that I thought led to a light
has brought me back to this barren desert.
My dreams of learning, growing and staying strong
are fading away.
Everything I'm made of screams;
I say I don't hear it, but I know I do
because of that place inside that always speaks the truth;
where not even a lie you've forced yourself to believe
a million times can hide.
The black, empty, cold night;
I could write thousands of fascinating words about it,
and somehow it describes me in a way I'm not entirely sure how,
but I stare at it; somehow I see my fate: dark but still beautiful
in a deep and, again, fascinating way.
Though I barely believe it, I am deeper and more complex than I think;
I just need that strength, which is not yet something I'm rich in.
The light of hope and possibility shines only on the strong

It crashes on me like an ocean blue, heavy breeze.
There was a reason I drank this coffee,
and didn't go to bed, and let this day end unfulfilled
only to promise on the new day that I'll do better.
In this writing, deception comes to me saying I've done enough,
but I haven't! I probably never have!
There is a voice that needs to scream out,
and hands that need to be balled into fists,
though I don't know what they're supposed to punch.
Ah, my hand hurts from this writing,
just like I always wanted;
after all, I've said too many times to write until it hurts,
but how many times have I really meant that?
I need to act, lest I learn the hard way
that you've only got one life;
everyday I must be one step closer to my own promise land.
It's like everyday I get a glimpse―a small glimpse―
of what waits for me, and now I realize
that it waits for me, not vise versa;
the light at the end doesn't come to you; you walk
