what just happened ... will never happen again .
your hands start to tremble; the sink is cold .
you tell yourself you are strong; you are bold .
don't look in the mirror and stare .
this isn't right ... this isn't fair .
don't think about it too much, or you'll go insane .
tears and blood make their way down the drain .
what just happened ... to me ?
why do you feel so gross and dirty ?
feeling so worthless and wasted .
so unloved , abandoned, and tasted .
having given them everything, every part .
why did they turn, and break your heart ?
shattering every piece, leave you broken .

If you're keeping me awake?
Is it the infatuation
That made me start to shake?
Is it so peculiar
If you make me feel brand new?
Is it some kind of obsession
That I have with you?
I watch you when I feel lonely
Is that so wrong?
I think of you when they hurt me
So what if that's all day long?
You make me feel so happy
What if that's all I have?
Should that be taken away
Just because it sounds mad?
Because right now in real life
There's no happily ever after
When I see something I don't like
I can't just skip the chapter
Or quickly press fast forward
On a TV remote control
Real life is but a wound
And you help fill the h

Is that so hard to do?!
You don’t care about my feelings,
They are nothing to you!
What have I done wrong?
I just want you to leave,
You hurt me more and more,
So how can I believe?
Your words mean nothing,
Your apologies are fake,
Just stay away from me!
How much pain can I take?!
You got what you want,
But what about me?
I only want one thing,
I want to be free!
I can’t take it anymore!
Every night and day,
You just refuse to leave,
So at least stay away!

in a grave of mud and flesh remains
they've killed many souls with bloody knives
and weaved their ladders out of veins.
"Away!" they shout when death has cried
and off they run, away from pride.
"Away!" they scream when death has blown
so off they go, when blood has flown.
Then there's the boom of drums and trumpets
wail. Men fall to graves; they've pain their debts.
There's rust in bones, and tears at home
And strange lost love that walks alone.
There's a pretty, kind lady looking out the window
little does she know that now she's a widow.
And the little young boy who sleeps in her arms
had just lost a father down by the dams.
A beautiful girl lies beneath the pine trees,
staring at the skies and all what she sees
is the bright red sun, bleeding on the horizon
the girl shuts her eyes and death brings her ease.
Once an old man had a wonderful family
who lived on the other five chairs around
the kids would play and jump so cheerily

Lucifer and VisitorThe Devil mourned his homeland lostLucifer and Visitor2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Upon a stone in exile deep
Beneath the great Earth’s hardened crust
Where fires rage inside the sea
Much too far for father sky
To see the rock where The Devil lie
As he lamented, sullen, weary
Expression that of sorrow true
A Thing appeared, and very clearly
Cracked the gates of Lucifer’s tomb
The grin that danced upon his face
Found hell to be the quaintest place
The thing approached and asked him kindly,
“Why do you mourn your banishment?
All the land above I do see
But I’ve never seen an armament
So well hidden from my mighty eyes

She said to the wind
And the wind whispered back
Not for those who have sinned;
Not for those who cry
In the deep of the night,
Not for those who die
In the darkest of light.
There's still plenty of time
She laughed to the boy
But he didn't laugh back
For he found no joy;
Not for those who slave
Through the long, hard days,
Not for those who pave
The path for your ways.
There's still plenty of time
She sighed to the moon;
The moon knew there wasn't
When you're filled with gloom;
Dear girl you must learn
Time's not what you think,
What you get, you must earn
When your life's on the brink.

I don't know you enough
To even know your last name
But I do know that you've had it rough
As I have felt the same
But you've suffered more in your distress
Making my past sorrows
Seem nothing more than a jest
Knowing atonement heralds tomorrow
Even so, I know the pain
And the committal to aid
In my heart has lain
Of course, if you desire it made
My heart, I swear, broke
When I heard of your troubled emotions
And the stress driving you to provoke
And this stayed in my notion
Maybe I could give comfort
Make the past easier to overlook
Together, rid of our contorts
And be each other's retreating nooks.

My guardian angel forever more
Haunting me to the core

Leaving my emotions behind

Abandoned for life
Waiting for my knife
To redeem my self

Living in my own despair
Wanting to repair

and heave your biggest sigh
Oh, my lonely love
Alone in a crowded room
Feeling so scared
The shadow of isolation looms
and it feels like they don't care
My lonely love
Remembering the times
when it was just us
Sorrow, with its sweetest rhymes
think of it as you must
My lonely love
Crying alone at night
wondering what you did
hearing them fight
when you were only a kid
my lonely love
Told that you were ugly
that you were not good enough
they will just never see
That they weren't all that tough
my lonely love
When it feels as though your soul is gone
And your heart is broken
The LiarWhen I found out the truthThe Liar4 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The filthy thing under the bed
I screamed and howled
And learned to hate;
For the truth was biting
Bitter and cold
Like a burning hailstorm
That I wished had never unfold
I kept a secret
Told a lie
I spoke words of hatred
Felt something wilt and die
The world was faux
An unattainable fantasy
Hopes were fed to monsters
In my blood that cried blasphemy
I don't think you knew
Because you'd hate me if you did
To know our common blood was false
Of me, you'd surely rid
So I cut you off first
Then you'd never have the chance
To look under the bed
And pierce me through with a lance
I destroyed you first
So I'd not be

And make me love you more.
The brightness may undo me,
The darkness I adore.
There's so much grey,
And so much pain
That brings rejuvenation.
I fall and sink,
But then I blink
Whence to where is what I asked,
But much is coming clear.
My sadness fading here at last,
And with it all my fears.
You've brought me out,
How can I count
The times you've soothed my soul?
From where I was,
You may become
The star that leads me home.
Light and dark will mold and mix
Till grey is what I see.
A calming sight that seems to fix
What once was wrong with me.

I longed for

The soft voice

Notes and LettersI wrote a note the other day,Notes and Letters2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And with it shared my feelings.
I've tried to have it other ways,
But they seem to be congealing.
I loved the stars when I was young;
The first word of mine was "light".
Of happy thoughts, I once had none,
But now the world's more bright.
I feel too much frustration,
I need to be more calm.
I drown in hesitation,
Too scared to sing my song.
I never was the kind of child
I wish I could have been.
At times I've been more meek and mild,
But later I learned to sin.
I wonder, sometimes, whose life I'm living,
Whose soul endows this frame.
I blunder, sometimes, when what they give me
Doesn't match my name.
Glass HeartFragile hearts that beat for love,Glass Heart3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Seem to never get enough.
Encased in a glass that’s stained with red,
A reminder of the blood it’s shed.
Over the years it has hardened from pain;
Careful to ever love again,
But some memories are engraved in gold,
Reminding the heart of what love can hold;
The promises behind just one kiss;
The little moments you know you’ll miss.
The empty ache subdued by an embrace;
Causing your fragile heart to race.
The rare confessions that are only heard by some,
Gazing in the eyes of the hopeful one.
The memories that form a smile on your face,
Caresses on soft skin that leave a trace.

Am I merely a voice, left far in the past?
Where the sun once shone
Where I once laughed
Where the rain of my eyes
Poured down on my lap
Turned my face scarlet
And melted my mask
Does the sky still look the same?
Its brilliant blue
Screaming my name
Lending me wings so that I may fly
Pulling my feathers
And watching me die
Heartbroken, and crumpled upon the ground
Breathing faint words
In gasping sounds
Does its beauty still torture me so?
Please, dear future, I yearn to know
Am I merely the words from some distant shore?
Am I a memory, or something more?
Does the snow fall when the sun goes missing
Or does it mere

To forget a monster's sins
To forget an artist's layers

To forget a line of lies

To forget a horrid cry
To forget who's heart will bide
Forget to have known
Forget to have been shown

When that time our flow and ebb
Made it seem oh so inviting.
But soon my mood was soured
And I soon ran like a coward
After we both started fighting.
And after I escaped,
I accepted natures fate
That we were never meant to be,
You the spider, I the fly.
When the ebb and flow ran dry
It was time to struggle free.

You stood by my side,

I was stuck in a rutt.
I've finally realized,
how could I not see?
that all of you,
were right beside me.
You stood me up,
you didn't let me fall,
so I think it's time to say,
that I love you all.

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

The metropolis crumbles, the plague worsens.
Don't blame the bearer of bad news!
I wouldn't be me if I could choose!
What am I but a glitch in the system?
I have no will, I have no freedom.
You might as well delete the anomaly,
Because I am useless, I'm no prodigy.
Why must you all hate me so?
My morale has sunk so low.
I don't even know if I'll make it.
And so to luck and fate I submit.
Beautiful Car CrashConstructed sanity falls to nothingBeautiful Car Crash2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Angelic tragedy hits the shore
A beautiful car crash takes me wanting
My dull reality knows no more
Doll eyes flickering wake the fallen
Demonic hauntings tumble free
Jagged glinting eats the solemn
Like all the stars you’ll never be
Secret prisoners find the open
Their immorality starts to bleed
New delusions heal the broken
As toxic cravings wake and feed
The darkness burns through resurrection
Eternal sufferings smile alone
The sickness breeds a new infection
Our skulls beneath a jagged stone
Delirious thoughts of vicious powers
Acidic smiling hides my fears
A corpse among the poison flowers
