Whence To WhereYou surprise me and confuse me,Whence To Where20 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
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.

BrokenI am worthless, unwanted, left here to dieBroken1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Stranded, all alone, with no names to cry.
I am ugly, horrifying, the picture of spite
Qualifications to love; no sense of sight.
I am stupid, naive, no future for me
At least, not the future I wish it could be.
I am jealous and hateful, I could skin you alive
If you ever touch the monster that I am inside.
I am timid, afraid, never anything but tense
My shining silver tongue is my only defense.
I am broken inside, despite all of my tricks
I am broken tonight, and I will never be fixed.
Dreaming on a CanvasIn the MoonlightDreaming on a Canvas9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Look into a fathomless night and see the constellation flicker
Removed from our existence is a speck long and gone
A smoky stream of purple fog moving like a breeze, yet thicker
Seen by those who roam along an endless black beyond
An everlasting journey, past a thought amidst a wall
Here I may attempt to fly, here I sleep and here I cry
I turned around within myself, peeled away my lids and saw
My skeleton standing by itself, ageless on a shelf and dry
Mystery was my reason and my final destination why
Questions are my purpose, yet the answers only sound obscene.
For I walk eternally and soon begin the day I die
My Once Days.Lets just smile all the long while,My Once Days.16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I use to remember the pain of the day,
Alone in the dark fading away,
Thinking and thinking about the smiles,
Wondering about it all the long while,
The more happy a day became,
The sadder i'd be at the end of the shame,
To see a sapphire sky beam so bright,
To watch the grass sway as though its right,
The most beautiful days of my life,
Are also the nights i sat and cried,
Most sweet but as painful as thee,
Sweeter than sugar painful as death,
Running in circles avoiding the depth.

To be angry.
You were always just a sinking cloud.
Speak now, the truth will set you free.
I can't stand you anymore.
You never answered
My question for sure.
I want to leave you, but you have me cornered.

I am called depression,
I feel no shame,
and it's my fault what she became.

Wisps of white
Makes the sunshine
Not so bright
Clouds my eyes
Cant see a thing
Only grey and nothing
No song to sing
Come up from earth
Down from the sky
Fills up my mind
I cant say goodbye
Cuts off my sight
My hearing and voice
I cant break through
It gives me no choice
Im no longer here
Im no longer there
This mist has me trapped
Ive no life to spare
DesdemonaSee her there (whirling). She is a picture.Desdemona3 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She is a statue in motion, marble
winding across the floor. Chaos, yet safe
in the Fates’ woven fabric tapestry.
She is harmless, (harmed) in unending dance,
for which Death is the only remedy.
She is not ill, so needs no remedy,
but veiled is her virtue in the picture.
He does (not) see purity in her dance.
No, he is resolute as the marble,
trusting the (apocryphal) tapestry.
Due to the calumny, she is not safe.
She was once (in love) protected and safe;
Iago’s lies have been the remedy

You will be judged well,
Your faith will be chosen,
Heaven or Hell?
Think about your past,
Everything you did,
Did you live your life right?
Was it all you need?
Now think about others,
Did you treat them right?
Have you risen the sun,
Or drowned at night?
Once you understand,
You already know,
Everything you have done,
And where you will go.

I need a change because as I sit debilitating over my deliberation, over thinking, over working every single situation.
I ponder and wonder even more then ever so my thoughts end up controlling my body and I am emotionally rung out and left to die inside and out, I'm contorted with this notion and it becomes Me, a framed distortion of who I was and this will be who I am until I refocus break this curse its not as easy as hocus pocus its a struggle with in me and my world.

Fallen CastleHere in a flash and gone even faster.Fallen Castle13 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Like a ghostly angel but I call no god master.
I answer to no one save for you and you alone.
You are my queen though you sit on no throne.
For my heart beats for you and can be awakened by no other.
But we never seem to work so we're both forced to find another.
It seems we are broken and it's something I can't fix.
I've tried laying new mortar but I've run out of bricks.
Our castle has fallen, only rubble on the ground.
I thought it was true love but instead torture I found.
A Coronary DreamI feel it crush,A Coronary Dream13 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
This feeling I can touch,
A ghostly kiss,
This feeling of bliss,
Sends chills down my spine,
Oh how destructive and sublime!
I can feel it in my head,
My nose, my lips,
As it sends me into this beautiful abyss,
I taste it's taste, I can feel it's touch,
This is my ode to my destructive romance I love so much.
I journey down its roads,
Made of fine sugar that I corrode,
I cherish this burning deep in my soul,
Once again it takes control,
Like a coronary dream,
My delighted heart lets out a scream
I'll let it fill this hole,
As it powders my soul.

Whatever you leave will rot then I'll eat it,
You can go anywhere, as long as I'm not there,
Wherever you are, just make sure you're far,
And we'll call it even.
I made you your ego, sold it, you bought it,
Stretched out my hand, you took it, then bit it,
Replaced me, then left me, but still never happy,
But this is my story and you don't want them to know,
So I'll be quiet until I forget it,
And we'll call it even.
I'll go tell all my friends that you were a nice guy,
And you'll tell your friends that you never made me cry,
Even if it's a lie we told a hundred million times,
We'll tell it until
I Would Have Rather Been KilledI enter the room and I'm flaring upI Would Have Rather Been Killed15 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My passion for you makes my heart soar
I left here last night as you stayed in my mind
I cannot wait, for now I demand more
But hey, who the hell is this other person here
Who aims their hatred toward my man
Like it doesn't feel bad for anyone else
They tear others apart and they don't give a damn
Maybe for once I'll give it a shot
Try to tolerate it and deal with negativity
To search for respect through all those horrid words
No matter how much it will kill me
Your words leave me with a broken heart
I cannot help but burst into tears
That this person would despise my unspoken soulmate
Leads me with no c

Someday I'll write
a lullaby for you
Someday I'll lie
And somehow say the truth
Someday I'll wake
And find I don't fit here
Someday I'll stand
And overcome all fear
Someday I'll sleep
And wake up in a dream
Someday I'll see
Nothing's quite as it seems
Someday I'll question
What's really above
Someday I'll write a

The BattleThe battle I've fought for so long,The Battle16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Where I thought I'd come out strong,
Is now lost from my hands.
I am far now from these lands,
Back to where I belong.
The battle I've fought, I pass to
The other members of my crew,
The people in white rooms worldwide,
The people who have been denied,
Death, or life as we all knew.
At my loss, do not feel sorrow,
For there's too short of time we've borrowed.
Although I am gone,
I will always live on,
If you keep your head up for tomorrow.
This short poem is in honor of my old math teacher, who died two nights ago in his fight for cancer. He meant a lot to me. He wasn't just a math teacher, or

How to live
Without your love
Without your voice
I have learned
I do it more and more
I will learn
How to live
Only half alive
With the pain
With half of my soul
I have learned
I do it every day
To take it away
To make my soul
I will learn
To let you go
To let you be
You are happier
I have learned
I let you be
You will find
It wasn't me
So I hope
That I will find
That you are
In love now
Will find a way

My Heart holds darkness,

The Hospital of DecayI dreaded theThe Hospital of Decay20 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
cold, odd smelling
hospital waiting room.
It seemed like everyone
was waiting for
some sort of magical
miracle cure to

They knew it was there though.
Lurking in the disgusting
poison they feed you
convincing you it will

Around the corner
standing in the shadows
watching your monitor
the repeating beep that your

Sitting in your soft flesh
right in the center of your
blue pulsating vein
waiting until it can
spread and infect you
with it's disease.
No one will notice

ShatteredI'm tired of the way,Shattered25 minutes ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
the world passes my by,
And again, day by day,
I'm tired of the way,
I'm wishing for a change,
Praying for a destination,
Walking a mental pilgramige,
Working on an estimation -
How long will it take me now,
To find an unfound truth,
I want to break the cycle now,
For myself I need no proof.
World view changed in an instant,
Malificent, evil round the courner,
Death, injuries, for instance,
All at once it's crashing by,
Ridding me of all resistance,
A huge yawn now a small sigh.
I wished this upon myself,
But now another layer of my-
lies on top of what was here before.
Am I the cause or on the shelf,
Watching down and feeling so-
I'll die here now for something more.
Love, romance, smiles again,
And for a while there is no rain,
I see the sun around once more,
The world has now unlocked my door,
I'm free to roam the world as me,
But this exciting recipie,
Has given me a fast r
