It is summer-
When the night comes,
I will sing you to sleep
with songs of summer nights
and fireflies, the warmth of magic
that rests on your skin like dew.
I will run my fingers through
your hair, keeping each tendril
out of your face like a loving shepherd
of the hills of your cheekbones, your
forehead, your gently closed eyelids.
When the morning sun rises,
I will spark the stars in your eyes
and fuel them to burn brighter
than the sun that reaches down
to kiss your skin with fiery lips.
I will urge the breeze to whisper
sweet nothings in your ear and
make you feel like you're flying,
like you've grown invincible and

That you can actually see yourself dying
But then there is that time when you just say "enough is enough"
And get yourself back up to find a way out of the darkness
For too long I've been spiraling down further and further
But I've finally awakened from the nightmare
The bleeding has finally stopped
Yes, it has left quite a scar, but I can live with it
This is my epiphany
I'm going to finally just let go of the past
To finally forgive and forget!
It's time to just shut the fuck up and enjoy my life!
Why should I live in the past when it's killing me?
No more complaining and mourning
When there's n
Collide.There was aCollide.8 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
We weren't bodies,
We were souls,
Exploring our very existence.
And spirit met spirit,
And skin rushed across skin
As we searched each other's bodies for a deeper love within.
Your veins were a highway,
Your sighs soft and d i s t a n t
As we sped faster into this lustful instant
Twisted and tangled, we were breathing as one
A Leviathan of my OwnThis heart of mine, dwindles and dullsA Leviathan of my Own6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Scrambling so feverish for a gracious lull
Peace, shies from my clueless strive
Answering only to those who may survive
Iron-clad leagues, tread on with vigor
Snarling at death whilst squeezing their triggers
Worn by peril they march in a cursed daze
No longer rattled by death’s boundless haze
And so I must scuttle this fear
Gradually, through every passing year
Treading alongside, the many lives I hold dear
Peril can no longer be endured alone
With strength in company, coursing through my bones
Panic will dissolve, falling further into the unknown

Give me the strength to continue the fight
Against the evil that lies within my heart –
Purify me, let me bleed and tear me apart.
Cleanse me, I beg of you, set my soul free
From the demons that have such a hold on me.
I am a man, a mere mortal, dedicated and just,
I steer clear from sinners and am not swayed by lust.
I am loyal and honest and faithful and true,
And, in my time of need, I turn to you.
I am wounded and broken and on my knees, I pray,
Save me before the sun greets another day.
Protect me from the darkness, let my torment end,
So I can be your Man of God once again.

He cringed at the pain and blood on the floor
He cringed at the thought of suicide
He cringed at the thought of death
But even that didnt stop him
The ambulances rushed his home
Dead for one thirty-five
In that time his life flashed before his eyes
In that time it all hit him
This was not the answer
In that time he saw a face he never knew
Then he saw his family
He regretted what hed done
He awoke with a start
They all looked at him
They all sighed with relief
He missed it so much
He thought he lost it all
For once he witnessed true pain
He almost lost it before his time

Fill the air with the music of life
Fill the air with the opera
He hid in waiting
He would not be found tonight
He would strike once more on the night
He would become a new beginning
He had a story and he had a right
He was paid great deals, he seemed as the he could fly
He was the angel of darkness
He was the angel of night
His face hid behind a mask
His face was said to be horrid
He was a monster to many
He silently attacked the singers
He would never be found
Until one day he saw a lady
He could not bring himself to cut the rope
The music was like his life
He would never be found
He had crept to her ro

in the infinite moment within winds that blow,
longing for that time to be once again
where I asked myself what is to be and when.
Sorrow runs through my mind as if a thousand
souls were killed before me with ease, gunned,
dark past that follows me on every step I take
to forget what evil I have done at the stake.
After It RainsWhy is it the leaves always seem greenerAfter It Rains4 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
after it rains?
Does that mean
after a bad time
comes a great time?
And after a great time
comes a memory?
When it rains
are you crying inside?
When it cries
is God helping you?
When it rains
does it always storm somewhere?
When it sprinkles
will there be ice cream?
When it sprinkles
is the world going tinkle?
When it sprinkles
is there a surprise inside?
When it storms
it seems like the day couldn't get worse
or are you dancing in the rain?
When it storms
are you blowing the clouds away
or are you getting struck by lightning?
When lightning strikes
is someone always hurt
physically or emotionally

Factual Side of FictionWhat is writing?Factual Side of Fiction7 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
To a colorless mind, it’s just words.
To a naked mind, it’s just a story.
To a writer, there are facts behind fiction.
Facts as in the main character,
Or his/her supporting characters,
Being what the author is
Or was in their unforgiving past ¿
Hidden behind paragraphs,
Concealed behind sentences,
Masked behind words,
Buried behind every syllable,
And even blanketed behind the space.
By now, you may get the point.
But let me ask you,
What do you see underneath words?

Now, what do you see in plain sight?

For there is man
Who squander and torment for a feeling of remembrance
Be it a moment
Or a millennia
A plethora of reasons for it to be
A sense of belonging
Or a void never to be filled by such tedious acts
Yet they continue on their quest
To a reward desecrated
Through the footsteps of millions before them
As they too search
Carrying the burden of emptiness within them
As they step forward
All for not
I fell in love on a Saturday.I fell in love on a SaturdayI fell in love on a Saturday.2 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
In a city far from home
Under the shadow of the arch
Amongst those twenty thousand people
I fell in love in with a boy from home
Yet under the St. Louis sky
Where we all roamed freely
Breathing in the Missouri air
I fell in love in crowed room
Where voices and movements clouded my thoughts
Yet yours stood out from among them
Drawing me in with your beautiful words.
I fell in love with the way you spoke
How you held me close
And made me feel okay again
When the whole world came crashing down
I fell in love on a Saturday
With a boy from I knew from home
And the words he spoke, and how his arms held me close

and they notice my fears
and figured out why I cry
I never hear much from them, after.
So i'm left wondering
How they would feel
Knowing I have scars
Because of them?
I don't let people in often anymore.

He met me
Thought I was
His whole world
I gave him
Loved him too
We were distant
I found someone else
And he called me
A pretty face
That turned into
a pretty big waste of his time
Told me I had no morals
I had to change
Now we no longer talk
Sometimes I wonder
If he still loves me
I was just a waste of his time
Never meant to hurt him
I just found comfort
In someone else
I should have just left
Should have never had a back up plan
But he had his
Everything was about him
I had to be an angel
To see him
The day he told me
He didnt love me
The day I almost died
Of a broken heart
He had another girl
Who liked him
And sometimes I wonder if
He cheated the whole time
Then when everything
Got okay between us
He went to see
That night before Christmas
He told me
I was a hindrance
wrinklesit's your long, gray braid that i love the most.wrinkles6 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
a wisp of wisdom cascading down your back,
never tangled, whispers hymns through all the madness.
crumbs of noodles and rice spill from it while you walk,
leaving a trail to all the hearts you've touched.
your eyes, they are bright and mighty.
your bones, they are small but sturdy.
your spine, it's stitched with scripture.
your hands, they make you human.
the cracks in the skin hold an entire family together.
you may be well into your 70s,
but never forget
that every wrinkle ripples a story.
i'll never tire from hearing yours,
and i'm glad you are part of mine.

little stars with wings,

Oh, these fireflies give us hope,
little bright lights of hope,
that no shadow can consume

Evil wants to eat these fireflies;
black holes want to suck up these stars,
but none can touch our brave
Through dark times they have courage
where would we be without them?
who can show us a path?

These fireflies are our inspirations-
give us hope
to one day
bring light too!

I've broken my fingers
