When devil falls for angelPlay with darkness I want to see it
Penetrate it, wishing for me to feel it
I am the devil; you chose to be an angel
You play with fire, you play with danger
Hold your breath, don't scream just yet
Rain swept me off my feet, I'm lying wet
Chose your fairy tale, I'll be you magic
Let go your tears, it won't cause the tragic
Recall the feelings, give them breath of life
Even purest truth ends being a darkest lie
Longing for something you can't have
I refuse to live without you, I refuse to understand
Like the night craves to be saved by day
I crave for you, in each and every way
Questions with no answers, love is not reward
Everything seems so wrong but opposites attract
The devil and the angel never could decide
Was this feeling true or was it just a lie?

I think of beauty
And the last few nights
While I've watched it's light
Reflect off the rippling water

Other than I am close
Close to finding you
But even when I do
You will not know
For I can't bring myself to tell you
And maybe this means
We're not meant to be
Because most certainly
You will never be
The one looking for me

Hanging by a MomentI will always wonder what she was thinking that day.Hanging by a Moment in Free Verse More Like This
Though I wasn't the kindest or bravest,
Nor was I the smartest or most charming,
For some reason, on that day, she chose me.
I was plenty surprised to say the least;
Certainly with her charm, beauty and wits,
She could have had anyone in the world,
And yet she choose me, a spoony poet.
It was as if an occult hand swooped from
The heavens and turned her gaze towards me,
For it could have only been divine work,
To make me worth an angel's attention.
Here I am, clutching to that memory,
Hanging by a moment.

And yet I was blissfully unaware of the light.
Before her, I swore I knew what it was like to see,
But now I can look back at how blind I truly was.
It was her smile that illuminated my life,
And her brilliance that finally opened my eyes.
It was her fire that melted away my defenses,
And it was her heart that was key to unlocking mine.
She taught me that there was a world beyond the darkness;
Another place where pain and anguish could disappear.
For the first time in my life I'm right where I belong,
And though I'm scared, I know it's all going to be all right.
Praise be to Cupid, whose arrows surely pierced my heart.
And to Venus for allowing such beauty on earth.

Does your stomach drop?
Do you use your depression as an excuse
To hide that how you feel is because of how hurt
You are like I do? Too afraid to admit that you
Let someone close enough to destroy you?
Maybe I am the one who is perfect for you
And that scares the hell out of you.

was just as deep,
as the love I feel for you.
InvincibleThey say that I can't last much longer,Invincible in Free Verse More Like This
Grinning as I scream in pain
And laughing as I gasp for air.
But they won't reach their goal.
"Daddy, you'll be back, won't you?"
Her words still echo in my head,
A piece of happiness I keep within.
"Of course, my angel. Sooner than you'd think."
Darkness embraces my consciousness,
And every breath becomes a struggle,
But still I hear her worried voice.
"Promise?" she asks. "Promise." I answer.
And as I lie here on the floor,
Beaten, bloody, and alone,
I feel my heart beating in my chest,
Fighting to fulfill my promise.
"But how can you know?" she calls
As I'm halfway out the door.
I smile as I bend down to hug her.
"for you I'll be invincible."
And though my world is made of pain,
And my blood seems caught on fire,
I draw one breath after another,
And know that I'll return alive.
No DifferentWhy do you stare at me with those eyes again?No Different in Free Verse More Like This
As if I had a contagious disease
You back away as I come near you,
And refuse to shake my offered hand.
What do you see in me when you stare like that?
You look at me as if I was dying,
As if I was beyond your help,
So you might as well not bother trying.
Don't think I am as good as dead!
Rather, picture me like a bird
That tried to touch the clouds, but failed,
And broke its wings as it came back home.
Think of me as a deer, full of life,
That used to roam the woods and chase its friends,
But broke its legs jumping through the trees.
Now I am bound to the help of others.
I may not be able to walk, or jump,
Or run with you, as you live your life.
But my heart beats just like yours does,
And my lungs breathe just as yours do.
I may be bound to chair on wheels,
But my eyes see just as well as yours,
My ears hear exactly what yours hear,
And my brain works just fine, I am not stupid!
Look at me, not past me like all the others do.
I have ears
RuinsWe thought that it would last forever,Ruins in Free Verse More Like This
Praising it would never break,
Now all you see are crumbled stones
Where all past strength today seems fake.
Once our dream of glory had come true,
When this place was filled with life,
The streets were full of laughter
And the houses full of golden light.
Now where formerly we lived and loved
Time has faded all our traces,
And the earth reclaimed what once we took,
While humankind forgot our faces.
But look carefully, search with all your heart,
And you might find a trace of past:
A shard of metal, a piece of stone,
The ruin of a home that lasts.
And faded memory will be remembered,
The forgotten tale retold,
As our city's ruins are uncovered,
And our stories you unfold.
And again out works will matter,
As you marvel at our skill,
And through your books we'll live forever,
As years from now we'll be remembered still.
'Perfect'Smiling at your every comment,'Perfect' in Free Verse More Like This
I keep you pleasant company.
You've never seen me sad or angry,
Always polite and always friendly.
I am the perfect girl.
I dress the way you like it,
I act the way I should.
Never have I broken
Any of your holy rules.
I am the perfect puppet.
Speaking only when spoken to,
I lead a silent life,
Staying hidden in the shadows,
For I fear I'd bother you.
I am the perfect ghost.
I wonder, do you see me?
I am slowly withering away.
Do you hear the silent screams
I keep locked inside my soul?
I am dying a perfect death.
I've waited for my saviour,
Someone who could see my tears.
But now I finally realize,
That I must help myself.
I must break my perfect chains.
Will I succeed in learning
How to speak up for myself?
Will I succeed in showing
The colours you had faded to grey?
I must break my perfect mask, and learn to be myself.
Finally I see the truth,
That humans can't be perfect.
What makes us special is the skill
To learn from our mistakes.

MasksWith big smiles she greeted her friends,Masks in Free Verse More Like This
Drowning in the crowd of people.
How many claimed to be her loved ones?
Hundreds? Thousands? She lost count long ago.
They welcomed her with jokes and laughter,
and she replied with hugs and kisses,
Pretending not to see the cracks in their masks
Or the lies in their voices.
She knew they were hiding something,
She heard the whispers behind her back,
Saw the greed behind their smiles,
And sensed their hatred long ago.
And every day she felt another part
Of her soul breaking away.
At night she tried to fix it,
Trying to reattach the broken pieces,
But as the time went by she realized
That the harder she tried, the faster she broke.
And so she continued what she had once started,
Acting cheerful, while breaking apart,
slowly creating her own mask
To hide her true self.
Until one day she met you,
The girl who refused to wear a disguise,
A big grin in your face,
And true kindness in your words.
Your left hand you had outstretched,
In your right you
WaitingThere he sits again, right at the door,Waiting in Free Verse More Like This
So he won't miss her when she comes.
Watching with those hopeful eyes,
Unmoving, undistracted. Waiting.
A crash disturbed the silence,
The noise echoing through dark streets,
And blood painting the concrete roads,
As the fragile body hit the ground.
His little paws, they stand unmoving,
His lively body sitting still,
Only his nose twitching, once in a while,
Hoping to catch the familiar scent.
The piercing wail of sirens followed,
Announcing the disaster
To the crowd that gathered at the scene,
As helpers lift her in the car.
For weeks he's been coming,
Every afternoon he sits to wait,
Hoping for her to return,
Only to be disappointed.
"Will she make it, doctor? Will she survive?"
He shakes his head and shrugs his shoulders.
"Her wounds are deep, her chances low,
But we will do our best to save her."
And though, for all that time, she hasn't come,
He doesn't seem to mind,
Returning yet another day,
Watching, listening. Waitin
