Witch with a Fairy Wand:
She came out in a dress full of laces,
She faced up a crowd and their god-fearin' faces.
They started screamin' murder over hymns and a gospel,
They said 'you better run or you're caught in the Witch's spell...'
But out came the sun and it dried up all the f***in' rain,
The girl waved a wand and it took away the crowd's pain.
Old men were runnin' while the kids were doin' backflips.
All because the girl had a wand and she let it rip!
She had a fairy wand, a f***in' fairy wand,
She had a fairy wand, a shiny fairy wand!
She made us all believe...
In all those things we wanted to see...
She made us all believe,
In all those things, locked up in memories!
Cause she had a fairy wand, a f***in' fairy wand,
She had a fairy wand, a shiny fairy wand!
She had a fairy wand, a f***in' fairy wand,
She had a fairy wand, a shiny fairy wand...
Out came the priest, he was dressed up in the robes of white,
He brought out a cross and he said, 'Now we p

Your birthday is a special day,
It comes but once a year.
And so I've made this little poem
For those that I hold dear.
You've lived and grown another year
And now you've come of age.
It is time for you to show yourself
Upon this worldly stage.
Some are artists, some are troops
Some are sportsmen throwing hoops.
Some are writers, some are bad,
Some might be the best we've had
Others are fixers, others will fax
A gamer might use some mighty hacks;
There is a plethora of choices for you,
So do what in your heart is true.
But for today let us just have fun
Rock the world and then be done.
For a birthday comes but once a year
And yours my friend is finally here!
"Happy Birthday to you, I wish you all the best and may all your wishes come true."
-From Chen Yuan Wen, to all the November birthday kids, 5th November 2012
This is a SongThis is a song for the lost, the broken and the damned,This is a Song in Free Verse More Like This
This is a song for the hopeless, the outgunned and the outmanned.
This is one for the sinners, and the non-believers too,
This is a song for all those people, people just like YOU!
This is the anthem of the normal, the oppressed and the abused,
This is a song for those people hidden from everybody's views.
This is the prayer of the unwanted, the unneeded and the small,
This is one for the unheeded, so let's give it our all!
This is a song for the people, who always just want to cry,
This is the anthem for those who have once wanted to die!
This is a song for all the people, that are dead inside,
This is a song for everyone, who has ever cried.

I see the bloodthirst in his eyes, the hunger for victory.
A demand to be recognised, yet soon to be silenced;
Perfect and perfunctory - my opponent made defunct...

The flicker of life soon fading from their eyes.
I smile and whisper a word of parting,
For the fool who fell where he lies.

You think you can forget it;
As soon as you forget it,
Believe you will regret it,
Relieved of all your credit.
Your honour and your lifestyle,
Curled around my knife while-
You sit and play your games,
Thinking everything's the same.
But I'm watching and I'm waiting;
This patience suffocating,
But it's worth the while I'm waiting
For this hatred I am facing.
You thought it was forever,
And so you did endeavour;
To pretend the chains and ties,
That bind you; they have died.
But the fact is you have lied;
Forgotten where you're tied.
The markings on your side,
Remember why you hide!
But its too late for apologies;
The ice has just cracked -
And my gun has just cracked,
And soon you're getting capped.
No love for another traitor,
No love for another hater.
Remember who is greater:
A king or his creator?

Here we are, sitting behind these screens of glass,
Reading lines of text, yet smiling, laughing and crying.
It's strange to think that I could have this much fun -
Considering that I've never met you before, but then again
Perhaps that's the reason why I don't have to pretend.
Some people might tell me, that what we have is just a fantasy,
I doubt I'll have the chance to actually see you in this life-time.
But even so, in the time that we've spent together - Well,
I feel as though I've connected with you, more than anyone else.
I feel as though I know you better, than those just a few feet away.
You might take this little confession as something silly,
Maybe you'll even forget about it as time passes,
But I for one could never forget about someone like you,
And so I'd like to dedicate this piece, to the beautiful you.

To the edge of the very abyss I have travelled.
With worn feet, gone bloodied and bare;
Dragged upon stones that stretch like sharpened spines,
Leaving tattered spoils of flesh in my wake...
Even so, I am incapable of halting;
Like a zombie, I remain numb and hypnotised.
Shambling ever onward, toward the glimmer of light.
Eager to be behold the 'she' that awaits me:
A wonderous wellspring of inspiration and knowledge;
Perfect, yet fragile, in both shape and form...
It is her majesty, her radiance,
That leaves me drained...
Alone in the depths, I am humbled and awed.
Yet the admiration that I feel soon turns corrupt,
It renders my thoughts both dark and cracked...
For if any other were to find her,
They would wield her as a weapon.
They would have no need for inspiration.
Creative thought would be an utter simplicity:
Leaving a perfect world, without opportunity...
Indeed I could never share such a thing.
Jealousy leaves me ugly, but still I c

You've grown up well haven't you...
A single shuddering thrust means that everything has ended

The weight lifts from her body, leaving red marks around the wrists

Southern earth beneath her feet,
wanderlust burned like Apollo's touch
into her spinal cord, please awaken
the empty space between her skin

When was it...

The four/four time of my heart
Has filled the beats,
And filled your soul.
But music is what you speak,
And music is my whole.
Alas, time runs thin.
And my words ended in awkward clauses,
Never finding the right notes,
Not finding the right tone.
I wanted to make you smile,
But I ended up flat, clashing,
My words in discord.

My voice comes out in
The white-washed walls,
Leaving me for graceful
The paper comes out in
Crumpled heaps, scribbled
On with my lost
We argue through the walls;
A phonetic firefight,
And the crumpled heaps
Bleed words of pain, loss
Insecurity and love, for
My precious Friend
Our words are slung like
Rocks at Goliath, only to
Have this elegant giant slowly

Between cries, for
The sane - in between my tears.
Looking upon this
Once sought sanctuary -
Becoming enraged at dreams
Once dreamed in amnesty,
Secrets lost with the fall of
Muscles tense and
Eyes dried. As
The hours march by; hand-
In-hand with the Bird, the
Bear, the Hare, and Fish.
What happened to my love's
Tonight while the moon shines,
A heart to the skies - pumping
Romance into graves
Once dubbed eyes - leaving
Heads empty and discarded
Like rotting fruit rinds.

Are the words you possess.
I always thought life was wrong,
Yet when things go badly,
You are there.
Exactly where you are.
Time and distance,
Fill empty spaces,
Fill closet doors to open
New worlds miles away
From my own.
My mind wanders.
And miles away,
My heart rests with you.
I'm but a simple man of
Letters, enslaved by
The absurd world created by
Our fathers, led by
DREAMS dreamt by
Dreamers long dreamed.
Who long ago, lost the
Memory, of that perfect dream.

Litter my desk,
Rolled up mirrors and powder
Never looked so alone.
The taste of you
On the tip of my nose
Leaves me in tears.
The bones of my lives
Parade through the halls,
Tall, charred and deaf
To the phone going off at
And if it even wont show,
You are - no -
Were the one I love.
The bones of my mistakes
Are rotting in my front yard.
Yet no one cares to take
A second glance, because all
They look like
Are blades of grass.

Creeps out of my heart,
And leaves butterflies in my stomach
Fluttering their wings,
Causing uncontrollable chills
Confusion working at its finest,
But I know why
I cannot describe what is going on,
All I know is that I love….
I know what love is!
Inseparable connections roam the air
Filling my mind,
Whispering in my ear
My hands twitch at the very thought
Oh, how I love!
What is this?
I have not known this before!
Or perhaps I have…
In the depths of my vanishing childhood
Maturity brings about an overwhelming change,
Oh how different it would be!
Why am I surrounded by this feeling?
Is this all an oddity?
Oh, how I would like to know….
But I do know,
With every breath I take,
And every move my body aches to make…
That I love!

And once again,
I am here,
Unable to persevere….

To know what your purpose is
In treating me the way you choose
I spiral down from the seat
I once had been placed in
Wishing to shed this earthly dirt
I’m trying to remove the soil
That buries my despairing hope
Only more piles on me
Halting my weak attempts
Strength had vanished from my bones so long ago
Leaving physical endurance a mere once upon a time
There is no space
That would allow me to make movement
I am confined to a state of intense aversion
My lungs have quit
Both deflated, shriveled, pieces of nothingness
No kindness to grant me new air
Do not fail to remember
You are the reason
For my asphyxiation
Are your actions an increasing result
Of my precise accusations towards your descendant?
As he almost became rightly labeled as an offender….
The label never occurred
Leaving me with stares from others
Claiming me to be a mythomaniac
Your significant other assists you
In the telling of false statements directed at me

Not Holy creation,
But the creation of a ticking bomb,
Ready to explode when Satan’s call has been answered
My eyes remain tightly shut as I feel the weight shift
I can tell the time is coming soon
I have exploded into fiery fits of despair before-
But not like the one that remains,
Getting heavier with each breath flowing through my tiring lungs
I revive into a lighter mood,
And push away a painful past
I let my mind drift away into paradise
I felt so overwhelmed by the peace at hand
Only the love from the close ones around me
And the Father up above,
Could leave me with such a light & hopeful feeling
I never tore the bomb off my back,
For it was created by the Enemy
He would not let me grasp it in desperate, clawing hands
So I ignored the dreaded day
I knew it was to come soon,
But who said it would be today?
I am now sunken,
In an ocean of eternal pity
Environment worsens itself,
Included with the pain already felt inside my withe

So again it seems
That time is here
A season of dreams
They only disappear
The visions of snow
Of a better place
A cold lonely show
I can't replace
The bright lights
Can't block it out
The solitary nights
The constant doubt
Holidays drawing in
Time to settle down
To a darkness within
Under it I'll drown
Happiness has fled
Leaving me behind
My joy lies dead
Rotting in my mind
Winter's icy blade
Digging in so deep
The pain remained
When I try to sleep
Where's that feeling
You're suppose to get
Instead I'm concealing
How I'm always upset
Shouldn't want to cry
At this time the year
No matter how I try
I'm still hurting here
Because I still care
I may now understand
So painfully aware
I've lost your hand
Seen any chance fade
I should have known
When logic is obeyed
I would remain alone
The DescentThe DescentThe Descent in Free Verse More Like This
I have to now realise
The truth cutting deep
Discard my empty lies
Sad dreams in my sleep
The words obit my head
Stalking when I'm awake
Haunting my empty bed
Pushing until I break
What I'm truly feeling
The echoes of the heart
I fight from revealing
But where do I start?
Felt this way so long
Building with each year
Yet it's all so wrong
Hurts too much to care
Why did I have to fall?
Into your perfect gaze
To suffer withdrawal
When we part our ways
Why did fall for you
When we can never be
A stupid thing to do
Only paid in misery
It's cruel sad ending
In life's empty plan
I've no hope of mending
This lonely broken man
Why are you so perfect?
Amazing radiant beauty
No wonder you'd reject
You need better than me
The reality is so cold
Dark, empty and bleak
No-one for me to hold
The sad lonely freak
What part of my mind
Made me feel this way?
It is torture defined
And Now I am its prey
I've taken the descent
Fallen into your eyes
Endless falling torment
Under mocking skies
The LineThe LineThe Line in Free Verse More Like This
That line remains so thin
I live so perilously along
Where did this even begin
When everything went wrong
Glancing over the steep side
To visions of what may elapse
The alternate outcomes reside
Guilded in welcoming traps
Either edge of this cliff
Marks a different reality
Each option scares me stiff
For I know which one will be
On which side should I fall
Do I maintain what I conceal
Or should I unleash it all
Confessing everything I feel
I know which side calls out
Which ouctome that I desire
Oh how my heart does shout
Setting my open soul afire
I want the ending with you
For that reality to unfold
But you don't want it too
So I'll stay lonely and cold
Why bother making a choice
When destiny has been set
Dreams filled with your voice
Tainted in my bitter regret
This line is where I'll stay
Never to look down there again
My thoughts I cannot convey
My only company is my pain

A fortress of pain
Of ever raging fire

And nowhere to hide
Prison of the heart
It bleeds out lines

Belaying the signs
Tinted with my rage
Letters of despair
Pour from the mind
Out into the air
I lock them away
Barricade the door
There they'll stay
Banished them all
To this new place
Where I can fall
And shield my face
All hidden forever
Beyond your eyes
So I don't sever
The weakening ties
My eternal vault
Of mourned dreams
It's my entire fault
My silent screams
Burying my emotion
So it can't be found
An act of devotion
To block the sound
The voice in my head
Haunts my cold sleep
Nights in my bed
I lie alone and weep
This is my secret
All here, online
Kingdom of regret
My virtual shrine
Words on a screen
All that I conceal

What I can't reveal

Falling into the cold
Lonely frozen domain
Consuming my breath
Icy daggers of pain
Will become my death
It's too easy to crack
To break into despair
To just fade to black
Misery poisons the air
A bitter smog of lies
Choking out the sky
Stinging my lost eyes
I've no tears to cry
The line wears thin
Upon it I now stand
Wait for it to begin
As I try to withstand
That oncoming wave
A dark seething ocean
Nothing I can save
From my dead emotion
Every film or book
Pushes just too far
Each literary hook
Leaves a burning scar
A depressing insight
Into a shallow dream
Killing off my light
Murdering my esteem
Lyrics cut so deep
Music from the heart
Haunting in my sleep
When we're still apart
It's in every reference
To love and friends
I'm not their preference
My delusion never ends
They only remind me
I've fallen too far
It's now plain to see
You are my only star
But the words stay
Tearing me in two
I can hear them say

Sealed fabric wall

Just locked away
Only for you I care

Building up inside
This heart is dead
My words have died
Whenever I see you
My voice goes dry
Feelings so true
Can no longer deny
My mind is blank
You are my cure
I've you to thank
Your heart so pure
Everything I write
You who inspires
My guiding light
My burning desires

My words are lies
It's my defence
To stop the cries
There is no hope
My heart of stone

With my life alone

Sun was glistening bright
Rays illuminate your face
Cascading rivers of light
Dancing off the contours
Bringing out your beauty
For here I am now yours
In an alternate reality
A soft and gentle breeze
Of natures calming touch
Meanders through the trees
Life doesn't hurt so much
The pain bobs on the wind
Wafting into the distance
Feeling the misery rescind
I do enjoy this existence
My mind lost in a trance
Transfixed in your gaze
An insight into romance
A world of warm clichés
Our hands making contact
No hint of pulling away
I'm not sure how to react
What am I supposed to say?
We walk for hours on end
Till the light now fades
MY broken world does mend
As the starlight cascades
The peaceful speckled sky
Wrapping us in purest joy
The happiest tears I cry
The only reality I enjoy
You never brush me aside
My words finally heard
Words I no longer hide
Something new has stirred
Dormant, but now awoken
The icy prison does melt
The containment is

With feelings I can't undo
Floundering at the thought
As it all comes to naught
Not hidden by the shadow
It's banished by the glow
Of your radient perfection
You're immune to my affection
Of you I am in awe
A beauty without flaw
Surrounding a soul so pure
But of me you're unsure
I'm not up to scratch
You want a better match
Someone who makes the grade
Someone who can serenade
My face forces you away
No matter the words I say
That's why you don't want me
I'm hideous, painful to see
It's why you reject my heart
How it's tearing me apart
Cursed by this pathetic frame
A body, a face only for shame
Every mirror just makes me sad
How'd I end up looking so bad
A useless total waste of space
Trapped with an unwanted face
Why won't I accept the truth
That scarred my empty youth
This ruined wall of skin
Belying what dies within
Slowly I am rotting inside
With this shape I cannot hide
Being consumed by the pain
One by one, my hopes are slain
Here I stand in front

Crushing that trace of hope
Dwindling in the lonely shell

Stumbling in the dark
Now lost without a chance
Of ever being fulfilled
They burrow ever deeper
Under hardened skin
My outer reinforcements
Cracking and falling away
A wave of devastation
Every dream, every vision
Is filled with your face
That canvas of perfection
Perched on an elegant frame
It's in you I am trapped
Caught within your net
Those roots of emotion
Tighten around my heart
For there lies their prize
It may be accidental
God knows you don't want me
Hacking at every stem
To kill off those feelings
And let the open wounds rot
But I can't extinguish
The fire raging inside
You just mean too much
Too ever let fade away

Drops of cold anger and doubt
Puddles of my unwanted love

Falling from the empty skies
The frozen rain of the night
Stinging my lost lonely eyes
Starved of your perfect light
I'm trying so hard to be there
To be all you need me to be
Showing just how much I care
But rejection rains down on me
Clouds darken my broken mind
My storm is becoming too strong
Any hope has been left behind
All because I look so wrong
That's all that really matters
You won't see past this face
Now my soul lies in tatters
My life is a cruel disgrace
The skies rip open overhead
The flood-gates have broken
Inside this skin I am dead
Only the sadness has awoken
I'm drowning in its downpour
Depression floods my heart
I'm sure I can take any more
Sick and tired of being apart
Loneliness is my only friend
A constant stream of sorrow
