Do you know?
Care for you?
Listen to you?
Always be there for you?
Never turn their backs on you?

Do you really know who your true friends are?
Do you honestly do?
Can you sit here and tell me yes with a straight face?
OR are you going to mask it up with bullshit?
I think it's time we becareful who we choose as true friends
-Silence--Silence--Silence- in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
It's so quiet, it's so peaceful..
Looking out the window, the skys are clear.
The stars light up the sky, followed by the moon light.
Sitting on my bed, thinking in solitude.
Silence, has taken over.
So quiet, not a voice to be heard.
No one around you, just you and your shadow.
Open up your journal, write a poem.
Pen on paper, words come out.
Putting your thoughts out for all to see.
Another chapter in your life has been written down.
So soothing, so calming, letting it all out.
It's a release!
Plauging thoughts, rage no more.
Out of your head, a burden is gone.
Sweet silence, for you to enjoy.
The moon light shines in the window.
Ilumminating, you and your journal.
It's your only light for this night.
No lamp, no overhead.
Just you and sweet silence.
The night seems never ending.
Hours and hours, the moon stays up.
Skys stay dark, stars still bright.
It's as if time has stopped.
No one around you, no one can hear you.
In your peaceful solitude.
Sweet silence, takes you away

Why can't things be the same?
Why can't they be like they used to?
Why is everyone walking away...
Not caring, turning their backs..
This isn't how it used to be..
We all used to be happy, together and stood for each other.
Now it's like the rain, coming and going..
Destroying all that we had..
Don't you wish we could go back?
Don't you wish we could be like we once were?
All of our memories..all of the good times we all had..
All of that washed away as if it was lost in the rain..
Now we have yelling and arguing, pushing away, neglect and pain..
That's not what we wanted, don't you want to fix that now..?
I just hope one day, we can all go back..and be the same...

I am perfection
I am the one you despise
I am the one you envy
I am the one you try to be
I am the one who lurks in your mind while you sleep
I am the one who makes everything flawless
I am the one who never screws up
I am the one who always get's it right the first time
I am the one who knows all the answers
I am the one who knows all the secrets
I am the one who see's everything
So many people try to be me
But they always fail
I laugh at them
I walk over them
I make them grovel at my feet
You cannot be me
For I am perfection
Perfection is unattainable
So quit trying to be me
because you won't win in the end
I am the one
I am the light
I am the dark
I am heaven
I am hell
I am everything you wish to be
I am everything you wish you weren't

I am your hate
I am your greif
I am your life

I sit and I cry, thinking back of all the good times.
Looking at the sky, I wish apon a star.
I screwed it up, I went too far.
Just hoping one day, we can be like we once were.
One more time, that's all I ask..
I know you must look down on me.
I know I'm a fool.
I just wanted to be there..
I just wanted to let you know I care..
I'll be your friend, till the very end..
I just wish I could relive the good times..

What are these sensitive feelings?
When we feel for someone?
When we care for someone?
How is it that they are easily smashed?
How is it that they are easily torn apart?
How is it that they are easily shattered?
You care for someone so much
You would do anything for them
You care for someone so much
You just want to see them happy
You care for someone so much
You put your feelings aside just to aid them
I know I have done this
I used to always put my feelings aside
I always put everyone else before me
I opened myself up to everyone
I still do
Maybe that was a mistake?
It lets me be manipulated
It lets my feelings be played
It lets me get jealous to easy
It lets me fall prey to lust
It lets me be fooled
These tender feelings
All of us have them
Some are not affected
Some don't even care
How would you feel?
Getting toyed with?
How would you feel?
Getting easily cut off?
How Would you feel?
Getting tossed out with no regret?
How would that make you feel?
It would suck

Ah my friend, why so down?
Look at you, your in a deep depression
You tell me it's 5 years worth
I Understand the pain you go through
But look at yourself
Your still here
You have proven time and time again
No matter what you faced
You always overcame it
Your strength continues to build
You have emotional longing
You feel hopeless at times
You feel like you are no good
But that's a lie
because you are someone
You are a human
You deserve a good life
I understand things haven't gone your way
In the past few years or days
The world, you feel better if it's locked out
Scared if you do something, it will cause trouble
But that's okay, because you aren't bad
You are not a bad person
You have gone through so much
But your strength always came out in the end
Your friends, always there for you for it all
Catching you when you took a fall
Don't ever feel alone
Though I know you feel it at times
I know you don't open to many people
They have to earn that ability

She'll always have a place in my heart

FlatlineTotal, suffocating silenceFlatline in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The only penetration the sound of hushed conversation
Mulling over pointless topics to distract
Blinding white rebounding off the floors
Off the walls
And through the windows to lay upon carefully gardened flowers
To create a facade of peace
A thick cloak of weakness settles over them all
As tears bounce off the cold linoleum tiles
Eyes slowly close to never be reopened
Artificial sheets host rapidly cooling flesh
Clasped hands slowly go limp
As the steady rise and fall fades
To a flatline.
A sob emerges from lips long closed
But it is absorbed by a wave of sorrow
That emits from the pieces of shattered hearts
To join an ocean of agony.
Room by room this same sequence plays over and over
Like a tape stuck on a grotesque scene
Until the masked one comes
With his dead eyes depicting what he has seen
Taking away someone they have known for years
Next to be seen as another empty shell to be lain to "rest."
Once you step through that door

White MacabreEyes close to peer at a landscape projected from blackness once againWhite Macabre in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
A whimsical world of blank abstraction and absolute unpredictability
Subtle analogies from remnants of life meanings
Or beautiful nothing's soft embrace to sooth and solace
But something is wrong
A crack in the fabric
A rip in the wall...
An entity steps through the disruption
To peer around with a slight sneer
Yet it has no face
Only a featureless landscape, a hole of a head
Like white macabre
Cold as midnight winter
Though this colorless oblivion is a veil
There is an unmistakable pair of eyes hiding
Beady little things
Composed of obsidian
Deeply contradictory to their ashy home
Taking in my dangerous sanctuary with baleful indifference
Deeper still into the illusion
There is an insuperable and unfathomable desire
A desire to create a banshee filled masquerade
And be the main character to screech and wail a heart's agony
All at once I realize this thing harvests unadulterated power
So fierce the simple thought bro
A PoemThis is my poemA Poem in Free Verse More Like This
To pour my soul onto paper
To corrupt a white landscape
With this black expression
That does nothing for humanity
Letters formed to words
Until words dance before my eyes when I wake
And ideas brush against my mind when I sleep.
This is my life
The only thing that will absorb me
The thing that will transform my twisted emotions
Into an edifice resembling beauty to be noticed or not
A redemption for my thoughts
A clear way to wash away the tar of boding.
Perhaps a gift
Or a cleansing
A converging of mind to paper
But whatever the case
I will always view this poem as...
Nature to express oneself.
To be understood.
This is communication.
Internal communication to all of humanity
In hopes of finally being understood
Of finally finding someone like ourselves.
This is what sets us apart from everyone else
The ability to create everything...
ConscienceThe miniscule murmer in the back of your mind,Conscience in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The barely discernable whisper during the war,
Questioning every motive and decision,
Throwing in a what if and a why to ever situation,
The only reason for hesitation during a simple conflict.
The smallest moment that means everything,
In a world of the biggest moments that mean nothing.
It is the flicker in the corner of your eye,
The haunting laughing that does not exist.
It is the only shadow in your life,
The only light in a universe of darkness.
It is the downfall of your rise,
And the contridiction to every one of your arguements.
It is what makes you whole,
And it is the only chip in your impenetrable shield.

I'm happy for you.
It's good you've finally found clarity.
And I won't weigh you down,
I won't bother you with my emotions.
You probably know how I feel,
And I wish you could just ignore that,
But you still care for me and respect my opinon.
And I'm sorry I feel this way,
But there's no stopping it.
We shouldn't focus on it,
Because if it's ignored,
If I handle it myself,
In time it will fade,
Then perhaps be gone forever.
This situation is ludicrous beyond words,
And your decisions just scream it.
But I won't judge you for what you do,
Because only god knows what will happen next.
Hell, maybe it will actually work out,
Maybe we're just not meant to be,
But regardless I'm still here for you,
Despite my emotions toward this whole thing,
If you ever need anyone to talk to,
Anyone to ease the pain you go through,
I won't stand to see you cry,
To see your heart ripped open once again.
I refuse to see that record played again,

GardenerSmiles shine through nothing,Gardener in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Clear as mud.
Teardrops form puddles,
Feathers cover the blood.
Sun and Moon merge together,
Day and night become one.
The seed sprouts and creates,
The tree grows,
The soul burns brighter, almost done.
The sparks fall down into dirt,
Telling a tale of the sword.
What more was left dies,
Envelopes the pain,
Embraces the hurt.
The strongest oaths shimmer,
A ripple in the silent sea,
A tear in reality's cloth.
Now the fire is covered,
Wet ash takes over,
A world of gray is upon us,
All hope is gone,
Fainter and dimmer.
Snowflakes begin to fall,
Land upon the charred ruins,
A bandage to heal the wounds,
But the inflicter has won,
The victim dead.
Now all can hear the call.
The message is lost within time,
The resurrected hero slaughtered,
The white blossom corrupted in its prime.
Now the world awaits for the hero's might,
A gardener to replant the light.
DaisesIn the times when the world is blackDaises in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The reassuring light begins to uphold a slight crack
A foul emotion starts its nightly patrols
When the indescribable scent of her hair
Falls into dirt holes
When her eyes flicker
My heart beat beats a beat quicker
But I just fall back into labyrinthine gardens
Picking at broken daises until my courage hardens
Back into reality I go
What truth will my slightly masked eyes show?
In the times when everything is blissful white
Away from the lands of pointless blight
When her voice cascades down my soul
A waterfall of bliss - sweet to drink as a whole
My heart beat beats a beat quicker still
So I escape to the grass on my hill
Where I gaze into the sun's chest
Until my muddy pupils change into a blue so blessed
Back into her arms I fly
Because she deserves everything under the sky.
But what do I do in the times
When the time is not definable as hell or sublime
When all I know is her softly freckled cheeks?
I can't run away into my stability land as she

Swirling endlessly and making no sense.
Black and white intertwine with no shades in between.
I'm willing to do anything to be rid of this angst,
A continuous unbearable feeling that I can't describe,
For no reason it haunts my mind and heart,
Feeding off the blood that I have mopped up,
Infecting the edges of my soul,
Until those smooth edges become tattered.
I don't know what I'm meant to say,
Just give me a hint and I'll follow along.
The pounding is fast fading,
And I do not want to face the deadly silence.
Demons lurk in the sunlight,
But I can't see their features or intent.
Lies rest in the shadows of truth,
And yet I can only see what others cannot,
The only grimace in a crowd of smiles,
The single shadow in a sea of light,
The poisoned dagger that falls behind the cloak.
This isn't a curse nor a blessing,
A sin nor a good deed.
It's simply what infests itself in me,
And there's nothing I can do otherwise,
So what is this jaded soul m

A masterpiece eclipsed by the baying of a brat!

Shadowed by a child's melancholia...
Alone in the darkness, you lick your lips and growl.
Your anger, so evidently understandable; yet you forget your own abilities!
In despair, my dearest sibling, you have forgotten — yourself
Why fear an obstacle so easily overcome?
Why shred your works with such heavy tears?
Have you forgotten that we are the original craftsman?
Our tongues birthed as our chisels and axe!
We need only take these simple themes
And corrupt them with all our twisted fears...
This hatred inside of you, this bubble of frustration and anxiety —
Let it swell like a pus-filled abscess of anger!
And with your words unleash this vicarious plague!
Take the unblemished works that have scorned you,
And inject them with the very darkness of your soul!

Shunned amongst the Lycan tribes;
The great betrayers of faith.
We bear the mark of our sinful past
This ancient scar of hate.
We wear it proudly upon our backs
The fur that's ashen grey.
The sign that we have sold our kin
To live another day...
We werewolves live as tyrant beings;
Immortal as we please...
But we alone are forced to bear
This fetid filthy disease.
It eats away at flesh and bone
Until all that's left is sludge.
Lost alone in horrid pain;
Through empty days we trudge.
But we have learnt a secret way
To stop our bitter end...
As long as we can steal a pup
From our blessed neighbour's den.
The Thunder Wolves, the Shadow Hunters
It matters not the choice.
As long as we can feast on flesh
We alone rejoice!
The trembling change that overcomes
It charges through our frame.
Granted now unholy strength;
We howl in the rain...
We are Greybacks, Traitors all!
But you have made us thus.
Now we shall begin our vengeance
And you will sate our lust.

Most gory indeed was little Timmy's story,
A story of fear and suffering defined,
Poor little Timmy, he ran out of time...
Now then, I think I'll go welcome my little guest...

He smiles at you, as you enter the office;
Wearing eyeliner made of contempt and disdain.
His cheap cologne invades your nostrils immediately
And you quickly suppress a cough.
"Yes, yes, indeed we have to review this...er, many things are involved."
His face is powdered with a layer of self-importance;
Lips reddened by the polite harshness he spews.
His forked tongue flickers as he prattles on
And you're really getting quite tired.
"Oh I'm sorry! Of course, of course I understand; but my way is much better!"
You're getting really bored now, so you take a look around the room.
The expectation is to see it bedecked with acolades;
Yet bare walls, cold and empty, are all that greets you.
"Are you listening to me, I'm telling you why this isn't good enough. LISTEN TO ME!"
You take a look at the cup of coffee you were offered,
Cheap and lukewarm; you narrow your eyes.
"Is there a problem? I'm being honest, this is for YOUR OWN GOOD!"

Gleaming eyes fixed upon their reflections.
I am beautiful! they say to themselves,
And all of you must accept that as true!
To say otherwise would be a social suicide.
Their friends will defend them to the bitterest end.
In a circle of illusions cast by the group,
You are forced to accept this person as 'pretty'.
To me you are not beautiful, you are simply lazy.
You have done nothing for yourself,
And now you wish me to accept you?
But I must tell you the truth.
And though that truth may wound you,
I believe it is for the best:
Because girl, dayum! You just look so bad that my eyes are cryin' YOU a river.

Suffering the attacks covered in your tar
Clenching onto me like a parasite
Draining away all that is my life
Time is running short
The walls are beginning to distort
The darkness begins to pour
Seeping its way into the core
Separating fantasy and reality
Crumbling from attack of what is left of me
Tumbling forth and struggling to escape
Running out of breath that it's already too late
I stop fighting and freely start sliding
Into the abyss that I hide in
Keeps changing me from the inside and out
My decisions, my ways, my outlook and I shout
My shout can still be heard from within there
Is this real or another one of my nightmares?!
A voice called out of the blue and said to me
Why don't you wake up and tell me what you see

Presence of AngerTrapped in a cellPresence of Anger in Free Verse More Like This
Just like being encased in skin
Nothing can be able to get out
That's what a prison is meant for
Claw marks on the walls
Blood flowing down along the scratch marks
They were desperate
Desperate to hurt themselves to get free
They were lost and confused
There's something that is missing
Something that doesn't fit the picture
Where was the motive
The feeling behind this outburst
How much did they know
What were they thinking
Did they give up or fight
Just a dampened room
Water dripping off to the side
Must be torturing to hear it's ring
Just repeat in the dark repeatedly
Just like a person creeping behind you
Waiting for you to string your nerves up
There was no hope in this situation
Only a presence of anger
That's all there was....
Are we all anger consuming animals?...

For they are no one to cast one;
Just like impersonators of everyday life.
Models sculpted by fresh untouched clay
Cast a mighty shadow to show dignity

Smaller models stand behind this bigger,
Monstrous model only to have their shadows
Engulfed by the tower of clay, therefore
Taking itself into the shadow's form.
Having no shadow of its own,
It combines with the huge model building it more,
Only to be engulfed by the next most humongous
And tall-standing model

Fallen onto the meadow of vastness
Signifying that love must fill its gaps
Setting my gaze upon you
Even though I did not want to fight it
The feeling that is overwhelming my senses
There was a softness in the air again
I feel relaxed and calm around you
My eyes halfway closed and leaning towards you
I break those unbroken words placed upon your lips
Filling them with mine and pulling you in tighter
The taste of you is overbearing
But I do not fight it for I want the love to take over me
Our ways are soft but unspoken
But I want this to be between you and me
Love is meant for all people in the world
But I like keeping you to myself
Let our love be that way

Or maybe we look at it because
It is a masterpiece among gods
A new year could not exist unless
We looked back on the good old days
Its big hand moving faster toward his little brother
The day I yield passion for it is never
I turn around scared for a new year

I tremble not before the clock majestic wisdom

So just take everything and run away
There was never anything you could do for me
Just stay away and let me live in the darkness
So I can sleep away
There was nothing for me here
Just full of depth perception of lies and deceit
That I cannot rewind time
And make everything feel the same
So I lie here drenched in sorrow
Trying to forget everything
There's nothing for me now
So just take everything and run away
There was never anything you could for me

TOK, ProlgueHave you ever heard of the Hoolian Kingdoms? If you haven't, they are a kingdom of owls, and many other animals. There are different sub-kingdoms there. There are the Middle Kingdom, Tyto, Kuneer, Silverveil, and many more. There is a large sea called Hoolemere, with the biggest tree ever grown in the middle of it. Enough about that. This story mostly is in a cmpletly undiscovered place, south of the sourthern kingdoms.TOK, Prolgue in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
That kingdom is known as the King Kingdom. Why, you ask? Because it is ruled by a kingdom of cruel owls. Those owls are cruel. They take young owls and train them to be soldiers, or maybe slaves. They start training when they can fly. When the females get too old, or if a female is captured when she is more than 3 years old, they are put work to be maids. Males were soldiers until they turned white with age. They had social order as well: The first were the two barn owl leaders, Asula and Kudos. The next were the two helpers. The next after that was the High 20. That co

Noyto's back? she thought. "Aura, wake up."
"What?" grumbled Aura. "Noyto's back." Lilly said. That woke Aura up. She flew out of the hollow, with Lilly following.
The Great Hollow was packed with owls waiting to hear the news. Aura glanced at Noyto. He seemed alright.
"It was terrible," he groaned. "Hundreds of stone stunned owlets, many soldiers."
Soren looked at him.
"They need to be stopped," Noyto continued. "They plan on taking the Hoolian kingdoms."
"Do you think we need to stop them?" Soren asked quietly.
"No other owls are. That is, yes."
"Twilight, gather the Flame Squadron. Otulissa, Strix Struma Strikers. Pelli, I am staying here."
Pelli looked at him. "Why aren't you going?"
"I need to stay with our two King owls. I feel it in my gizzard."
Aura and Lilly looked at each other.
"You leave tonight."

Kudos was sure he would win. Even if he didn't, he was still royalty and wouldn't be exiled or killed. He couldn't be a maid; that was females' work.
They got in the room. The barn owls could hear plenty of voles with their remarkable hearing. Maybe she would be okay, Anala thought.
"Your job is to catch a vole. Last one, you are the weak and shall be eliminated." Asula said. Anala feverishly kept thinking, I can't be the last! I can't!
"Well what are you waiting for?" Asula asked. "Go!"
Kudos took off in high speed. He knew he was going to win; he felt it in his gizzard. He suddenly heard the rapid beating of a scared vole just below him, and dove. He extended his talons as he dove. Kudos pounced on the vole. He could feel his claws sinking in
Kudos flew back to his mother. "One down!" she announced, brimming with pride for her son.

"Why?" Aura wondered.
"It's the custom. And we have to eat it not roasted."
"Eh, I don't care if it's not roasted. Wait! What about practice?"
"Practice is canceled." Lilly paused. "Today's the real thing."
Aura's gizzard felt squishy. She would die, no doubt. They didn't even have any practice! "Oh great."
"Ah, our new owls." Soren said as Lilly and Aura approached. "Come here."
The other owls stared. The two owls recognized Mark. There was a Great Grey, a Snowy, and a Pygmy. There were also older owls: Ruby and Martin and Otulissa.
"Hi," Lilly said softly.
"Hi." The Pygmy said. "My name is Elsa. I'm Fritha's long-lost sister."
"I'm Aura, and this is my friend Lilly." In her mind, Aura wondered who Fritha was. They'd been at the tree for a few weeks but didn't know everyone.

"Look at my feathers," they kept saying. Of course, they had to act stone stunned. They knew they had to get out as well. It would almost be time for their training.
The two owlets walked and talked. They were alone, or so they thought. They weren't. They were being followed by Nyceata, the Snowy Owl who'd assigned them their jobs. She knew they weren't stone stunned. That chance was long lost. The owlets now slept in rock chambers where they could sleep normally. But those who WERE stone stunned remained stone stunned.
"Um do you have a creepy feeling we are being followed?" Lilly whispered, not daring to turn around.
"Yes, I hear something."
"You are being followed." Nyceata said. The two owls spun around. They gasped and acted stone stunned, though Nyceata knew they weren't. "I know you aren't stone stunned." She said calmly.

Pretty soon, the owls got a feeling that they were being watched. Not by the owls who took them- but by others. Aura's sharp hearing abilities picked them up, and she started whispering to Lilly.
"I- I feel like I'm being watched. Do you?" she asked.
"Yes," Lily said, trembling in fear. What if she never got to see her parents again? They were the only family she had. At least that she knew of. "I'm scared of never seeing my parents again."
"Me too," agreed Aura. She would be heartbroken if she never got to see her parents.
"Hey- shut your beak, or I'll shut it for ya." The owl carrying Aura said, shaking her. Although Aura didn't see, she felt her mother stiffen with anger. But Aura could understand. They shouldn't talk to a fuzzy downy little owlet. It was just plain rude.

"What do you think it means?" Aura whispered. "I don't know," Lilly said truthfully.
"Hey," a female snowy owl said. "No talking."
Lilly and Aura just walked faster, away from the owl to talk again. "This place creeps me out." Lilly said, shivers going up her spine. "I know, right?"
Aura already missed her sister Anala and her parents. Her other sisters and brother were in another place of the line. Kudos and Anala were in a group of older owls, to begin training. Aura didn't think she would ever be able to talk to Kudos without shivers. Asula and Kudos the leader, her aunt and uncle! It sent shivers up her spine.
After passing many holes and passage ways and turning through some of them, they reached a gigantic stone chamber, with no windows and no openings at all.
"Okay, just go on ledges. We'll tell you what to do." The Snowy owl said uglyly.

"Great Gray, and Sooty."
The masked owl suddenly fluffed up, and looked very angry. "Nick! Apollo!" she screamed. "Come over here right now!"
The two owls, with Lilly, flew out of nowhere and landed beside the Masked Owl and Aura.
"You let go of here friend right now."
"Awww...mom, we were only having fun." Nick said.
Aura blinked. How could this masked owl be Nick's mom? And the Great Gray? The Masked Owl, noticing this, said "You see, I adopted them. Actually I fought King Kingdom off when they were being snatched.

Anala flexed her battle clawed talon. All the owls who were soldiers were required to wear battle claws. She loved the feeling of them, especially when she hunted with them!
Nyceata stood watch over the Stone Stunned owls, on a small ledge a few feet above them. She had to get Lilly and Aura out straight after the meeting. They were already very good fliers, though she only saw them fly a few flights.
Lilly and Aura looked up at her and winked. They resumed their stone stunned glassy eyes.

That she barely knew the answer to.
"What's your name?"
"Do you know where you are?"
And most importantly..
"Why did you do it?"
"I didn't want to bother her anymore."
