Dog eat dog
Bloody knuckles
Red hands to rover
O, king of the carcass
Bite and bark, howl foul play
No fair no fair!
Ease up
Crown for the day

Why?
I have to ask why
Why can’t the world show hope?
I’m losing it seeing so many people
With amazing talent and personality
Losing hope and losing so much
To them
The only reasons I came online was
For hope to myself and others
And to show people what I can do
I can’t stand it
It hurts so much seeing this
Not even counting I’m an emotional mess
But I won’t loss hope
I am determined to continue even if
I’m unpopular, hated, uncared for
I won’t give up for myself and others
And I hope others won’t lose hope to

War
The crash and clash of swords and spears the flashing of the steel,
The crush and rush of charging into battle on the field,
The soaring roar that covers all the screams and streams of gore,
The ever present energy that makes us cry for more!
The propaganda selling souls across the sea for pride,
The posters messing with the facts of how many have died,
The lies we tell and hear and trust about a better world,
The caskets we salute and say ‘new angels wings unfurled!’
The path of war that marches ever on into the bleak,
And daren’t speak against it lest the masses call you weak,
For war brings peace or don’t you know the history we sell?
We fight for freedom rights and joy…at least after the hell.

For The Love Of My Life
First my best friend
Forever until the end
Even thought I thought it would never be
You will always mean the world to me
Even though we were so shy
You’ll always be my guy
It doesn’t take a while
For you to make me smile
When I’m sad that you aren’t near
I look in my heart since you are here
Since you hold the key to my heart
Nothing can tear us apart
And with all the crazy stuff we do
I can always say I love you
When you hold me close
I can say I love you most
I can’t wait till I say I do
Till the end I will say I love you
Forever I will be by your side
Just make sure ice cream is near by
It took awhile to find the right words to say
Since you are so special in every way
It is hard to convey in words how much you are to me
But where ever you are is where I want to be
❤️

The Hermit
The hermit is decay.
Ghosts in the light;
Tremors in the dark.
Life does not live here.
Breath escapes her
and she dies again.
Nothing is real,
but the rabble clings.
No one has faith,
yet everything is sin.
Poison evolves her.
Infecting the Earth;
a virus to her tribe.
The hermit is decay,
but she is life.
Fleeting, rotten, trivial
- life.

Stormless
Where is the promised thunder?
Where is our riven sky?
The rain has come and gone
and now the heavens clear,
where is the shock and awe?
The majesty of ruin,
where is the promised thunder?

The Hobgoblin and the mermaid
He – bleak bright blue eyes
speckled with white blurs-
misty mornings in the woods.
Focusing the ground-
attentively planting each step.
Striping the words like leaves-
a softly whispering breeze
faintly, gentle, infrequent.
A weathered emaciated figure-
stepping out of the mountains
leaves in the hair and a scent of moss
   –  hiding his sadness underneath.
She – mellow bright brown eyes
riddled with green sparkles-
awash islands in the sea.
Focusing the sky-
aimlessly chasing thoughts.
Breathing the words like waves-
a cordial tempting stream
enraptured, unattended, unfettered.
A blooming vivacious figure-
stepping out of the ocean
pearls in the hair and a scent of salt
   –  hiding her sadness underneath.
They – meeting in gazes from separated worlds
sightlessly familiar, wordlessly understanding-
an undisturbed incorporeal alliance;
collecting stones, shells and silence
   –  sharing their sadness unde

The Cup (Unfinished rough draft)
My mind, Roman a clef
My heart, neoteric aria
My soul, a gnostic poem
Composed of sunlight flittering through the procreant leaves
That branch from my own understanding
Broke the seal on Khalil’s breaking shell
While lost in the ache of knowing
That I am alone in knowing
That in the grand scheme I know nothing
Except myself
Whom nobody else can really know
And I realized that in “The Prophet”
I identify most with the Potter
Because I am also the clay...

Dont Worry About Me
There was a time when your smile was warm
When your touch was soft
When your love was strong
There was a time when your heart was free
When your eyes were light
when you still loved me
Now I wait for a sign youre alright
Perhaps a call or a text
Any sign of life
Now I stay by myself most days
Still in love with you
Still alone by the way

Julie Frost - Share My Love
I see the ocean blue
Clear as my love for you
Blue birds fly in the sky
With you in paradise
Before you came alone, I was so all alone,
Just like a new beginning
Heavenly is this feeling
I know that when you look at me boy
You feel a sparkle
You see I think I hear your soul dear
Whispers you love me
Share my love
Won't you let me give it all o you
Share my love
'Cause I'd never give you up my baby
Share my love
You know, my life was low without you
Share my love
Don'y you see, you mean the world to me
Share my love
Won't you let me give it all o you
Share my love
'Cause I'd never give you up my baby
Share my love
You know, my life was low without you
Share my love
Don'y you see, you mean the whole world to me

Agoraphobia
Lump in my throat, knots in my chest
No one else knows them best
Bones cracking, knees shaking
No one else knows this aching
These four walls are closing in
I can’t tell where I have been
The doors are slamming shut
I feel as if my thread has been cut
Fists balled up, knuckles turned white
No one else suffers this blight
Teeth are clenched, ankles are swollen
No one else endures the life being stolen
These four walls are closing in
I can’t tell where I have been
The doors are slamming shut
I feel as if my thread has been cut
Drowning in my lungs
Choking on my breath
My lips are speaking in tongues
I feel as if this might mean death
These four walls are closing in
I can’t tell where I have been
The doors are slamming shut
I feel as if my thread has been cut
Enclosed, entrapped
In my own mind
I have been kidnapped

R. Kelly - Share My Love
Come here baby
Just lay your body right here baby
And let me tell you all
All the things, I wanna do to you baby
Aw, girl relax
'Cause I'm about to prove to you
That every bit of me wants to be lying here with you
All I wanna I do
I just wanna share my love
I just wanna share my love
I just wanna share my love
Share my love, share my love with you
I just wanna share my love
I just wanna share my love
All of my, share my love, I just want, share my love with you
Let go baby
And let this feeling get in you
Why don't you just come a little closer girl
Let me show you what my love can do
Ooh, take that off
Oh girl and let the fun begin
If you just, just throw that out to love tonight
I promise you'll never hurt again, oh, no
I just wanna share my love
I just wanna share my love
For the rest of my life, baby
I wanna share my love
I just wanna share my love
Share my love with you
Now that we're in this room,
Let's do what we were born to do
Populate, let's get together

Claim because I can. I think.

If only this was Akira VS Yu. But that’s gonna be a three parter. And even when I finish Part 1, I’m not going to release it yet until I re-read it, fix spelling errors, get rid of parts that don’t seem interesting and are lackluster (mostly doing that while I write already), and of course, I do the same with Parts 2 and 3. And then I work on the Trivia, but I’ll work on that after all the parts have been posted. They won’t be posted all in the same day. Part 1 comes out on one day, Part 2 on the next, and Part 3 on the next. Can’t guarantee the Trivia will come out the day after Part 3 does, but it’s Trivia. Doesn’t matter too much. So...where was I again? Oh, right, claiming another battle because I think too much, and I apparently think I don’t have enough claims. Once again, if this battle has been claimed already, let me know.

Mama Dove
Mama Dove:
Sleep now mama Dove,
Warm your young as you rest.
Soon they will hatch and know your love,
Later they will fly and leave your nest.
But know that in their hearts you stay,
Even when from home they will stray.
In faraway skies they soar,
But know they love you forever more.

Close Your Eyes and Dream
“Close your eyes,”
“Close your eyes and dream.”
“Dream of days bathed in sunlight.”
“The earth covered in gentle green.”
“Close your eyes,”
“And wake up.”

From ash stand the remains of the past,
Grey and lifeless, barren and nearly endless,
Scare the once fertile green and blue.
Memories of yesterday will not be easily forgotten.
Yet the earth lets go and returns all that once was to dust.
“Close your eyes.”
“For the dream is near reality.”
“The mechanical cold dream.”
“The world’s lie.”

Fire and ash turn to dust,
And from dust, the earth begins anew.
“Close your eyes,”
“Close your eyes and dream.”
“Dream of days bathed in sunlight.”
“The earth covered in gentle green.”
“Close your eyes,”
“And wake up.”
“Wake up and see what can be.”

The past remains in ruins

Horses, Boats and Sisters
she may imagine herself riding
a horse that's covered with beadwork,
a horse unimpaired by those badges
of indian-ness - all prairie designs,
geometric wonders in number-ten beads,
worked by the grandmothers with
porcupine quills and elder-ease,
the tears of old ladies now lost in
laughter about pasts and tomorrows,
a present love that lasts beyond these.
this horse is magic, it can trot and
run and fly, and remain calm with the
weight of thousands of beads and
unchecked weeping - it carries her
gladly - her figure is slight, dressed in
white buckskin and looking up, her hair
braided, her chest hidden by a shield and,
of course, the shield bears a design
in beads and shows what it hides, if one
only knows how to read the signs.
or anime today - a tiny body and big eyes,
a precious mouth that forgets to say
my name, instead, searching other
ways to talk family, saying "ancestor,
viking, winnebago," forming there,
where my name is lost at some juncture
I don't know, sort of like robert j

Listen to this song. (Alice in Musicland #10)
Midori:
My dear boy,
You have to live with full of joy,
Don’t cage yourself with fear,
Or make a sad face when I’m not here.
 
My dear little prince,
Just remember only one thing,
That whatever happens,
I will always be in your heart.
 
You’re a tough one,
Get what you want,
Don’t always get your face to frown,
I know I’ll be gone,
Never get your hopes upside down.
 
My sweet boy,
Don’t change yourself when I’m away,
Don’t you forget to sway,
And never get music away.
 
Listen to this song,
Whenever you feel sad so long,
And remember where you belong,
And make your life worth living long.

Renaissance Faire
I don't wanna go to sleep, I'll just run with the moonlight
Past all the doom, m f-ers with their gloom sight
Shrooms in the skin, many fx like light shows
Mind is a minefield, don't wanna jinx but might blow up
One day,
I'd like to be a varying performance artist
Glorifying suffering to show the healing process started
Back before I gave up, wageslave cuckery turned riveteering
Demons turned 3 musketeers, teary eyes grew engineering
Foresight foreplayed forestry to eyelid cornucopia
Scoping jungle vision, bright ideas scaring those with astraphobia
Birth of beauty, fairy lover pushed through myotonia
To raise a seed with a green flow landlocked as Macedonia
Pushing past triskaidekaphobia,
No superstitions here,
Just fire from the lungs to clear the smoke from mirrors,
Using ash to make trails for my son to follow me here
Now I fear not, weird
Used to get queer looks,
Now I don't even notice, still engaged in the awestrike
Used to make impressions
Now I don't even know what I look like

Do You Recall?
Do you recall, old winter's past,
spent arm in arm forever young?
If only we'd knew, the die was cast
and the horror had just begun
Do you recall, the catch in your breath?
When I stood tall, held your hand and said
forever in a day, I love you to death?
In the city of the dead
we owe our lives to none
felicity felled by dread
Our trek had just begun
But we are ash, but we are shadows
we are dashed upon the shallows
We are all that we could ever be
Just flesh and fractured memory
For how were we to know
for how could we have guessed!?
That in death it's not so slow
the drain of life that's left.
Do you recall, the light in mine
when your eyes returned my glance?
Is it too much at all to ask a second chance?
In the city of the dead
we owe our lives to none
felicity felled by dread
Our trek had just begun
But we are ash, but we are shadows
we are dashed upon the shallows
We are all that we could ever be
Just flesh and fractured memory
Now watch my heart bleed
As this confession is freed!
