DownfallDownfall in Free Verse More Like This
And in this dark harvest of season
My life has completely lost reason,
For which or against to decide.
All lost in a savage and endless, bleak tide
In sadness and in kindness
In light and in darkness.
In a boat made of hope
I shall sail to tomorrow,
In a winding hurricane
Made of treachery and sorrow.
There's a spear, endless, and colossal spear...
Piercing, slashing though my head.
Starting somewhere in heaven,
Ending somewhere in hell.
Fighting, burning, crying, crashing.
Are the armies within.
In my head they are all thrashing.
On the heaven's and hell's whim.
To be light or to be darkness.
A perpetual array.
It's not merely my choice,
But the choice of the way.
It's an option of the voice,
It's a thin line of gray.
Is it a choice forced by fate,
Is it a pre-set time and date?
Or a choice to which I myself sway?
But here's our story anyway .
"Nothing that I do will matter.
As all things will merely shatter!"
All my hopes thus darkness scatter,
As it shoves me a decree.
As it si

What is there to do? What is there to do?
Some say it's just a phase others say you must conquer yourself
but how can you rely on someone of poor reliability to see themselves through.
When you feel out of touch with the world.
What is there to do?
When your family and friends feel miles away and you can't reach them or break through that self made barrier.
What can you do?
I feel lost and mystified
and emotionally wild
my eyes want to weep
but my face remains drier than a crocodile
I just want to burst
into an unstable
a spectrum of happiness and sorrow
anger and confusion
dazed and deluded
What can I do
when the ones you want to talk to
feel so unreal
and you're afraid they won't grasp
how you feel

and not with grace
no wings no feather
nor trace of dignity
only shattered fragments
of a lovely face
Her heart was not pure
her body elegant but unsure
beneath the sand
She fell from the sky
a translucent maze
her eyes did flicker
made all compasses break
lead them farther away
not dumb or brave
I dove into her mind
and what I saw
made my heart race
From then on
our hearts have shared fate
She fell from the sky
MessagesI woke up from a daydream I was having to find that I was walking on a sidewalk down town.Messages in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
The ground was paved with broken hearts that felt like stepping on broken glass with bare feet.
Each step more treacherous and painful than the last. Pave with lost memories, forgotten ideas, inventions and dried up tears of past travelers.
The air was thick and it felt as though I was breathing in smoke. Pure air possessed and and polluted my the insecurity and so called necessities.
As I walked I saw the faces of the people and their fake empty smiles and serious faces. worn and tired.
Their minds jaded and too fogged by the smoke that they could no longer think for themselves.
Just then my cell phone went off. Surprised and in a somewhat panicked state I took the block of plastic out of my pocket and viewed the cold, grimly lit glowing screen.
It said I had a new message, so I opened it. It read " I love you <3<3<3".
A silence came over me, as if the world stopped.

What The? Part 2 of 4Elspeth and Ria were able to see the Tangle on the horizon. As they rode closer, the ground began to rumble. A sharp spear-like tendril shot up out of the Glimmervoid and ran through the neck of Ria's Chrome Steed. The tendril violently shook the steed, throwing Ria to the ground. Elspeth's Chrome Steed became scared and threw her as well. Next to where Elspeth landed, something began to push through the ground.What The? Part 2 of 4 in Sketches More Like This
"A Pith Driller! Elspeth, move!," cried Ria
Elspeth scrambled to her feet and ran over to Ria Ivor.
"We're close to the Tangle, we have to make a run for it," said Elspeth.
As Elspeth and Ria made a run for it, the Pith Driller finally made it through to the surface where it released several Phyrexian Obliterators. The Obliterators gave chase, moving at a blindingly fast speed. Elspeth and Ria had reached the border of the Tangle and the Glimmervoid when the Phyrexian Obliterators surrounded them. As the Obliterators closed in on them, Ria got an idea.

"Urabrask, praetor of the furnaces of New Phyrexia?"
Urabrask stared at the man for a moment before he replied:
"I am Garruk Wildspeaker," the man began, "and I've come looking for you."
Urabrask was surprised but he hid it from Garruk.
"I am one of the greatest hunters of the multiverse," Garruk began, " I've hunted the greatest beasts each world had to offer and I always showed my dominace."
Garruk grinned at Urabrask and said:
"I challenge you! I challenge you to put forth your most fearsome beast, that way I can show you that it is I who is to be feared."
Urabrask took a step back, comtemplating Garruk's challenge. He then looked up to Garruk and, in his gruff voice, said:

What The? Part 1 of 4Elspeth Tirel rode across Mirrodins's battle scarred Glimmervoid. Her Chrome Steed bore many scratches, dents, and knicks from their many phyrexian run-ins. She finally reached an Auriok encampment on the edge of the Razor Fields. Elspeth dismounted and went over to the nearest person and asked:What The? Part 1 of 4 in Sketches More Like This
"Where is the Hero of Bladehold, Ria Ivor?"
"Standing behind you," came a voice from behind Elspeth.
Elspeth turned and came face-to-face with a woman with short white hair.
"I'm Ria Ivor."
"I'm Elspeth Tirel. Koth sent me to find you. He and Melira need your help at the Tangle."
After a few moments Elspeth and Ria were off riding toward the Tangle. Several hours past with no sign of the phyrexians. As they continued on, Ria spotted a dark shape.
"Elspeth, wait!," Ria called out.
"What is it? What's the matter?," asked Elspeth.
Ria dismounted her Chrome Steed and ran over to the dark shape. Elspeth followed her. As soon as she reached it, Ria picked up the blackened disk. Elspeth saw the disk R

"She has green skin," Nissa said.
"So," said Elspeth.
"She's a zombie," retorted Nissa.
"And your dead on the inside," smiled Elspeth.
Nissa Revane glared angerly at Elspeth Tirel.
"She has organicly infused metals in her body," said Nissa.
"Well, you have the heart of a golem," Elspeth said just as Karn walked by.
"Hey," Karn began, "some of us do have feelings you know."
"Oh! Sorry Karn," said Elspeth.
"So what are you two talking about?," asked Karn.
"One second Karn," Nissa started, "I'm from Zendikar, she's from Mirrodin."
"You were BORN on Zendikar. You might be mirran. Your parents could have been mirran planeswalkers," smiled Elspeth.
"No they weren't," replied Nissa.
"But what if they were and you were born on Zendikar, but they left you and you were adopted by another elf family," said Elspeth, still smiling.
Nissa closed her eyes, shook her head, and sighed. Karn looked at Nissa,

"I can't believe that just happened," said Elspeth.
"Obliterators are intimidating, not smart," laughed Ria.
As Elspeth and Ria continued on, a Plague Myr dashed across their path. Seconds later there was a rumbling. Elspeth and Ria ducked for cover as a Spine Biter came charging by, chasing after the Plague Myr.
"That reminds me. Elspeth, we have to be extra careful here. Predation rules the Tangle. There will always be something hunting something," said Ria.
Elspeth nodded in agreement. Moments later, the Spine Biter came running back, not even noticing Ria and Elspeth, as though it was running for it's life.
"That thing is huge, what possibly could be it's predator?," asked Elspeth.
"There is always something bigger," replied Ria.
As soon as Ria finished speaking, the Plague Myr came running by, swinging a Darksteel Axe wildly, as it chased after the Spine Biter.
"I stand corrected," said Ria.

"We need to go in there, Koth and Melira are waiting for us to arrive," said Elspeth.
As Ria and Elspeth entered the cave, Elspeth drew her sword and cast a spell on it causing it to glow to illuminate their surroundings. After walking down in the cave for about fifteen minutes, Ria and Elspeth came to a fork. The left branch was dark and continued downward, the right branch was dimly lite and had a sign above it. Elspeth and Ria were unable to read the sign because it was written in Goblin.
"We go right," said Elspeth.
As they walked down the tunnel, the light got brighter and a pink and yellow silk sheet hung over what looked like a doorway. Ria pushed the sheet out of her way and entered. Elspeth followed. Inside, Ria was quite surprised to find racks of shirts and dresses, s

The laws of love are very stern,
If you really do love that one guy,
Then you will never be that shy.
If that girl is your one and only,
Then you will fall for her slowly,
Cause to rush forward is scary,
And you want her to be gay and merry.
If love was as easy as the stories tell,
Earth would not be such a hell,
Because then peace would reign,
And my life would not be feign.

Than you started dating
But then it came to an end
Never to look back again
Y'all stopped talking
No more texting
Not even e-mail
Or a simple phone call
For days at a time
You just walked on by
No hi or hello
Just kept your heads down low
So why did you do this
Your just being stupid
You two were once friends
Why can't you go back to that
But no it has to be just constant fighting
That's all you two respond to
But what you two don't understand is
No matter what happens
You can just end this
But no what you choose
Is to give each other more abuse
By what you do and say
Why can't you give it a break
Eventually you did
You two were friends again
But that didn't last long
Those 4 months were over and gone
And it went back to
All the constant fighting
That's just all you two respond to
But what you two don't understand
Is that no matter what happens
You can end this
So why do you just lash out at each other
Just go back to the beginning
Go back to when you two

Once upon a time
There lived a lonely boy
And all through the night
He would run on home
For he was being chased
By the king
But he wasn’t just any king
He was the king of demons
The king wanted this lonely little boy
To join his army
And to make it his new home
But the boy refused and ran to safety
He failed to make it home
So this lonely little boy
From a small village
Blew up in smoke
The king of demons struck once again
The greatest fear of this small village
And once the king was gone
The people came on out
Like nothing ever happened
But what they fail to realize
The lonely little boy
With those dark and frightening eyes
Was lurking in the shadows
Waiting to strike
To perform the late kings deed
And burn the village down
Down to the ground

But what you don't know is how lonely I am
Yes I joke around and hang out with my friends
But only when they invite me or I'm at school
When I'm at home it's a whole new story
I lock myself in my room for hours with nothing but music
It's gotten to the point where my family forgets I'm home
They think I'm at my dads or friends house but I'm not

If i ever do get in a fight I probably will let them beat me up
I don't like to fight

Humans as I discovered, perhaps in the most painful of ways, are rather unintelligent beings. They are driven by their core instincts no matter how much they wish to deny it. And the only difference between one and the next is how deeply they let those instincts consume them.
If you walk out into the streets, you can see the well-adjusted average man. Yet in his mind he is not considering the good he could do with his life, he is only thinking about the next step. Where will I go next? Who will I be dating, what shall I enjoy next in life?
There is no thought of altruism; no sense of assistance for another. He could walk down an alleyway filled with the homeless and nothing would change...
