I'm going to cry.I'm going to cry for all I've lost,
And you can't or won't stop me.
I'm going to die for all I was,
And all you'll do is watch me.
I'm going to hide from you,
Afraid to show my weakness.
I would happily die for you,
But I still regret this.
I didn't want this life,
I didn't want these tears.
I didn't want this life,
I didn't want these fears.
I used to cause myself pain,
To make sure I still feel.
I'll do it now and again,
To make sure it's still real.
I'm going to cry for all I've lost,
And you can't stop me.
These tears I cry at my cost,
For once will flow freely.
Discarded.You cry for your sorrows and you bleed for your dreams,Discarded. in Free Verse More Like This
Just always remember, this world is not what it seems.
You can be the best of friends and then disappear,
They'll just discard you, I know it's hard to hear.
But this has happened enough to me,
It's all everyone's been doing recently.
So here I lie, discarded, fearing to stand up,
Because what waits just isn't worth getting up.
Thrown away and lying in a puddle of mud and blood,
All the other times I got up, and wiped off the mud.
But this time, as I lie here, broken and bloody,
I don't want to get up, I want to be a dead body.
I know getting up is inevitable, because I will never give in,
But I really just want to give up and say that "I'm done in."

This is the old tale we all know so well,
The proof lies here in the tale I am about to tell.
There was once a beautiful, smart and rich woman,
She was powerful and seemingly had everything.
Yet, although she had all this, she was miserable,
It's a sad truth, but then again, it's a sad tale.
She lost someone, it hurt her badly, it made her sad,
She'll be fine, but it hurts... She could be going mad.
But no, it was normal to hurt after such a loss,
There was a man to look after her, whatever the cost.
She was a proud, beautiful, smart and rich woman,
She was powerful and seemingly had everything.
But on the inside, her heart was hurting,
The reason why this tale is so saddening.
She was rich, she was powerful, she had everything,
Yet she was about to break, just like anyone or anything.

Don't torture me with the image of an angel from above.
If you want to change, then please, do so,
Change into a girl that I don't want to know.
Just don't turn into the girl that I love again,
Because I cannot handle being thrown away again.

The Ghost Of Words.Everyone knows it, that blank page, laid bare on the ground,The Ghost Of Words. in Concrete Poetry More Like This
The Ghost of Words, it constantly follows me around.
That blank page, whenever you come to write, is waiting,
It always seems happy to be filled, and yet continues resisting.
That blank page, I see it everywhere, a bare wall, an empty frame,
It's waiting for me to fill it, it hounds me, and it puts me to shame.
There is a constant fear, that one day I will not have the words to fill it,
I'm not scared of much, but the Ghost of Words has deemed me unfit.
One day, I will no longer be able to satisfy this Ghost's hunger,
Will it finally stop hounding me then though, I wonder?
This Ghost of Words, breathing down my neck with my every step,
It awaits to be filled, hounding me and making me savour each breath.

I don't know why I tell you this, it's not like you care.
I would've been a legend if it wasn't for the time,
Age of heroes has come and gone, all I can do now is rhyme.
I would've made something of myself, if I'd had the motivation,
But now, I just lie in wait, awaiting even more degradation.
I could've been someone, or something, I know I could,
But right now, it's all talk, all "Could, should, would."
Then there's that "if" or that "but" getting in the way,
I could've been a masterpiece, but here I am, rotting away.
No one even gives me a second glance,
I'm not a famous one like Rembrandt's.
I could've been a masterpiece if it wasn't for the tear,
If only the people looking after me had taken more care,
I could've been perfect, and remembered forever,
But now I am just a portrait, of the Forgotten Reaper.

Doing my very best to keep this rose,

And so I take this rose,
And gently dig her out from the dirt,
Leaving the field barren.
I take this chance to start anew;
I till the soil and plant new seeds,
And water the foundation.
Perchance, I can take this opportunity to forget the past,
And place my focus and energy in the present,
So that I might make a better future

And yet she choose me, a spoony poet.
It was as if an occult hand swooped from

For it could have only been divine work,
To make me worth an angel's attention.
Here I am, clutching to that memory,

That such a flower is not meant for me,
But I would only be lying to myself
Because I love the thrill of the game.
I truly do admire her spirit,

Never bending an inch...

Though absence seemed my flame to qualify.
My soul ached on those days we were apart,
And those are words that no one could deny.
And now, though not without risk,
I shall end this letter with but a kiss.

Without JoyA bard may choose to sing a song of happy days and eternal blissWithout Joy in Free Verse More Like This
But why should I sing of happiness, when misery is all that is?
The suffering we see around us, is tantamount to hell
Yet we accept these horrid days; caught within a spell
Perhaps I'm simply being morbid, a soul disturbed by a darker voice
Or perhaps I am the whispered truth; personified by choice.
I will not speak of revelations nor of better days to come

Letting Go of YouLetting Go of You:Letting Go of You in Free Verse More Like This
You abandoned me in the past
without so much as a proper goodbye
One day you simply chose to walk out the door
and you never did come back...
I was angry then, hurting badly
I wondered if I was in some way inadequate
I wondered if you left because I am so easy to despise
and eventually my sorrow turned to anger
I wanted to become great
to show you that you made the wrong choice
to take my strength and throw it in your face
just so you would regret it
But then I saw how happy you were...
In the time we've been apart
You've made a new life for yourself
You've found someone who loves and treasures you

We'll start with the rose petals
scattered lavishly across the bed
A symbolic collage of my broken thoughts
like memories crushed and thrown into the winds
they lie where they fall, forever forgotten...
Tacks and nails shall line the floor!
A perfect representation of my painful steps
To walk forward was to suffer
to stand still was to endure
Like the insults thrown at me, like the physical abuse
they drive their way into my skin and remain embedded
Unable to be removed except by force
And now comes the masterpiece, the perfect finishing touch
A wall of words and photographs depicting my sorrows and greivance

Hints to many that the dying world breathes.
Beneath the empty morrow that holds the shattered

Cold muttered voices tonguing the edge of my sanity
The creeping walls denote the loss of my inner being
Lick the paper that cuts the tongue into a myriad
of pieces and once again whisper 'Vinashuka'.
But my words will fall on deaf ears and I'm tempted
to once again open myself for torture. For perhaps
the endless grief with which I give myself meaning
will form into the bloodied words of 'Vinashuka'.
This single whispered temptation, a solitary lie

Frantically he scrambles away from the dark
Eager to be free of his waking nightmare
Acting only upon the instinct within him;
Reminded constantly that he is prey
For some time he hides in the pervasive shadows
Earnestly praying that he will not be discovered
A single sound is all it takes to jar him;
Running from a creature that he can barely see
From head to toe it is certainly monstrous
Enshrouded in an aura of absolute repugnance
As the acid drips from its cruel jaws,
Rapidly dissolving the ground below
Fearful, he cowers, beneath boxes and cardboard,
Escaping away into a tiny corner of his mind
Alone with only

I listen to the moans.
The sound of the dying.
The shadows hide me,
So I can be alone.
Try to take care of myself.
To get myself back to my feet.
It's not a sickness,
or a wound,
But a blow to the heart.
The shattered hearts laying on the floor,
surrounded by the pieces of souls.
Tread on by the visitors,
Only caring about their own.
I watch the world go by,
As I lay here,
Frozen in time.
Ever since you broke my heart.
Waiting for Time to heal me,
But she passes by everyday.
Sometimes stabbing me along the way.
I cried out for help,
But most just went on their way.
Not wanting to see another cripple.

A solution to my problems.
Hiding in the corner,
I wrap my wings around it.
Holding it close to me,

But this will do for a while,
But I'll end up wanting more.
More of you.
Things that are just out of reach.
I have to hold back.
Hopefully a little longer.

Whose name was Beth.
And even though spinning made her hurl
She used it to give thoughts life's gentle breath.
Who lived in an attic,
Spinning yarn for a fanatic.
Who worked her day and night,
While keeping her from the light.
While she spun,
She dreamed for her life to come undone.
So she could have some fun,
And so she sung:
It's a pirate's life for me.
The life of adventure,
And sleeping on, the open sea.
Oh! it's a pirates life for me.
She sat at a great height,
Far above the sea,
And oh! What a sight.

Went to down a cup of gorg,

Fear, of being left alone,
To stumble around in the dark.
To wander lifelessly through the shadows.
Thinking of you,

You left me here cause you didn't want to hurt me.

My blood ruining my colors.

His gentle touch as he held her hand
Now it is empty as a barren land

Craving moisture that he would provide
He caressed her heart with his love
Now it is screaming from the pain
Dying slowly as she cries in the rain

I wish it would stop
I want it all to go away
I wish I truly had wings
Maybe then I would be free
Maybe finding peace and serenity
Yet that is a childish thought
For the world we live in
It will always be a dream...

In which many of the souls He locked away could not be "saved"

Endlessly forever searching for the Gates Of Hell
Past the vultures that feasted on the broken bones
My wretched home was not that much different from those alone
The weapons of murder utilized can be checked at the door
Chances are if they are here they have used them once before
The gore that they spread to assassinate their foes
Led others to salvation and decimated woes
But now they are here to rejoice with the damned that dwell

No matter how long it ever took
Even if it became twenty below
The one place we could count on
If one of our lives went awry
Where we would talk until dawn
Where we would laugh and cry
And everyday we would meet here
Under branches that sway

So merrily as we sang and talked
The city streets were paved with lights
Unusually bright for such a rainy night
I gave her my jacket to protect from the rain
And she threw it back for she had to explain
Saying my old frame needed it along with a cane

They'll never understand the way she thinks
Feeding her self-doubt as she pouts in her room
She knows the next day this will only just resume
So she finally decide to take control of the wheel

A foolish flight of fancy?
A desperate hopeful longing

But they've not seen the feather

Your face, I see it still
That 'accidental' touch
That gave me such a thrill
Those sleepless, lonely nights
That ushered loves first tears
The beating of my heart
Whenever you appeared
Into your tender arms
First love lasts forever
We hold it like a charm
I will not forget you
You taught me, oh so much
Still my sweet beloved
I hunger for your touch...
It wounds my heartIt wounds my heart to see herIt wounds my heart in Free Verse More Like This
To know how much she hurts
Her tender hearts been shattered
And this pain it is the worst
It Wounds my heart to see her
She really is so sad
She thinks no one understands her
And that all her world is bad
It wounds my heart to see her
She feels worthless and so useless
She tries and tries she really does
But her efforts all seem fruitless
It wounds my heart to see her
To know what someones done
How could they break the heart
Of such a sefless one?
It wounds my heart to see her
She gave him everything she had
Her love she gave it willingly
Did he need to treat her bad?
It wounds my heart to see
I trusted youI looked into your eyes and I trusted youI trusted you in Free Verse More Like This
I needed help, I was scared and broken
I'd seen pain no child should see
I told you it all, nothing left unspoken
I looked into your eyes and I trusted you
Things were so bad and I needed you dad
I didn't know how to care for a drunken mum
I was glad you came back, I could stop being sad
I looked into your eyes and I trusted you
But you were just like her, alcoholic and sad
You didn't help, just made things worse
But I never dreamed things would get so bad
I looked into your eyes and I trusted you
Then came that night, you broke every rule
Forced your son to become your lover
I was you
The QuestHowling, raging stormThe Quest in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Skies of hurt and pain
Lost within the darkness
The heart I cannot tame
Why will you not listen
Oh love on fragile wings
Time and fate have spoken
No longer should we sing
Tender arms a memory
The echo of a kiss
Heaven rolled the dice
And took away our bliss
Still in hope we travel
Through icy rain and gales
Praying, hoping, dreaming
That love may yet prevail
Yearning, always yearning
We fly in search of you
For love forever destined
The love we know is true...
The Poets TaleEchoes roll like mistThe Poets Tale in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Faint stirrings of my heart
How to share these feelings
Or change the things that part
Courage fled so long ago
Self confidence a lie
The hammer blows of life
Made hope curl up and die
And yet within your eyes
Can I truly see a seed
Healing in your bosom
And in the words you bleed
I write in cryptic verse
Revealed like finest wine
In every word and stanza
Your radiant beauty shines
Praying needful prayers
I tell my poets tale
The quest to paint your beauty
And how I ever fail
But more than that my love
I clip my feeble wings
Afraid to say I love you
For all that it might bring...
