R.I.P.Did anyone notice that she winced if you raised your arm?R.I.P.2 weeks ago in Free Verse More Like This
Did anyone notice that her eyes were wide with alarm?
Did anyone notice that she never looked you in the eye?
Did anyone notice that her voice was but a sigh?
Did anyone notice that her skin was always bruised?
Did anyone question whether she might be abused?
Did anyone question why she walked in obvious fear?
Did anyone question why one day she did not appear?
Did anyone recognize her face on the six-o’clock news?
Did anyone see her remains pulled from the river refuse?
Did anyone care that this quiet girl no longer exists?
No. No one did. And she will never even be missed.

came inside without invitation
poured herself some tea
and asked for a story.
He laughed at all the right parts,
cried when I cried,
asked for more than she received
It cried with me and laughed with me
sipping their tea and listening
she wondered what I didn’t do
then told me how idiotic I was.
He told me about the children
I could have had but didn’t
and the falls that lifted me up
with the loss of others.
The story of how I almost killed a girl
when she ran into the street
scared her to run into the arms of her father
and never ran into the street again.

The girl in the pondIt was a warm summer night when I found her.The girl in the pond1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
Her dress was white with yellow sunflowers,
and her auburn hair was spread out around her pale face.
It looked like an ever changing halo
moving gently in a soft breeze.
She had lost a shoe
Her deep, blue eyes stared into heaven
and the freckles of her skin drew constellations
against the pale background to mirror the stars above.
Fish gently nibbled at her fingers and nestled in her hair
paying no heed to her ruby lips which her last breath had left open
almost like an invitation.
I looked at her
I loved her...
Thinking it was the least I could do
now that she ha

With clothes that are dirty and no shoes for his feet
He digs in a dumpster hoping for something to eat
Shooing away rats hiding from the sweltering heat
A small grateful smile crosses his dirt-covered face
(How unbearably pathetic in this dark dreary place!)
He grabs moldy bread and sinks down in his space
Between rank wet boxes and a trash-covered embrace
After only one bite he tiredly drifts off to sleep
And even in soft slumber he does quietly weep
In this place where life is nothing but cheap
And any comfort comes at a cost way too steep
Small hands tremble weakly with his body’

Our companions of swallow and significance have shrieked to opposition, their heirs of a green kiss mangled and torn; a more peculiar disposition.
Revival is our key to doors, brassed gently with the weeds, exceeding to proportions blinded; bound by roses and by seeds.
Blue eyes of sorts to observe their suffering, placid they are but continue to please, their times of anxious knowledge drown in submission; to them the pain is simply ease.
Within the garden children scatter, their brains of red shatter memories of

Curse of The LiarsDiscreet silver spiders slip from,Curse of The Liars2 weeks ago in Free Verse More Like This
The tongues of filthy liars,
To weave webs thick and replete,
With hazy veils of deceit,
That grow more dense and complex,
As they spread and mature,
Inducing confusion and delusion,
While damaging lives,
But fear not oh ye swindled,
Because those webs either collapse or implode,
Retract or explode,
As the discreet silver spiders come back,
To bite the flesh,
And gouge the eyes,
Of their original creator,
For Heaven and angels utterly despise,
Filthy mouths that spawn silver spiders,
This is the curse of the liars…

With the descending sun in the East setting
The next day's dawn more violence begetting;
The vicious cycle repeating
As Man's anger is ever-seething.
One by one another soul is born
Whilst another is left forlorn,
Raised to die
Born with wings to one day fly;
Doomed to condemnation
With no revelation.
Such pride they exert
As their fellow Man they desert,
Wealth, power and other mundane desires
Soon giving rise to revolutions and burning fires.
Man shant for long remain oppressed and chained
But their desire for freedom is but feigned,
For they gladly desecrate their fellow kin
But it would seem that it

And you shall find,
Much to drink,
And a place to dine,
But before you enter,
You should know,
That in the Hall of Cannibals,
We prefer blood instead of wine,
Sauced muscles and salted eyes,
Are a favorite dish of mine,
No, don’t leave!
I insist you come,
And stay at least until dinner is done,
Because you stand before me,
As a broken bum,
Your flesh is a sack,
And your bones live in it,
You know what they say,
Beggars can’t be choosers,
And the last ones there are certainly the losers,
Eat the flesh and drink the blood,
Discard your foolish morality,
And stay until supper is done!

In the sands of a time,
Where bad is best,
And everyone dies.
Craving the ash,
Of the innocent,
Holding the hatch,
For the putrescent.
Holding the rope,
That breaks their necks,
To deadly effects.
All in war,
All on the floor,
Blood and gore,
And you crave more.
Gutting for the fun of it,
Killing for the sake of it,
Burning for the smell of shit,
Running, Ever scared of it.

But I'm enthralled,
Every deed I've ever done,
Let me fall.

A cold murder under the veils of night,
Cast among the throes,
Of a sadists life.

Unreal, As a fable,
Pain through the night.

Spurts and he sins,
Finds pleasure in your pain,
As he ignites a flame.
A white hot poker,
A brand on skin,
A sadistic joker,
A sadistic sin.
Left in the basement,
Leather straps cutting your skin,
There is no replacement,
For the hole left by this sin.
In the cold, dark,
Drip, drip, drip of a water pipe,
In the cold, dark,
Slip, slip, slip to the afterlife.

Six numbers of a burning child, two numbers clawed of a cat; ancient ways of puzzling normalities speak through their placid flat.
A raven through their backs of glass, it pecks their blood from veins, a second of terror to renounce their values; through their eyes bend countless chains.
Alas, these ancient codes of mortality shall be spoken once, but never thrice, for the ten boxes of serenity's clockwork must organize their dice.

Take me to a land where I may be made whole,
A land where the sun never sets,
Because it never rises,
A land where lust and greed never recede,
And need not hide behind artificial disguises,
I want to lay my spirit to rest inside a grey place,
Where women can be wanton without disgrace,
Where I can horde the gems and count the silver,
Without the slightest slither of regret,
A land where I can be respected as a dark poet,
Who composes his pieces,
Beneath a firmament of shivering twilight,
Does not the artist retain the right,
To sculpt his creations into the form of the macabre?

And here as displayed you remain untouched, a simple word of pity, not, to leave the memories and bleed of surrender; your choice is made, farewell and rot.

The collector of souls is searching for new blood
To fill the chasm of heaven and hell

Welcome to the world of the damned
All souls perish here

Whose fate is black
The devil waits to welcome them
And The Reaper gathers the skulls

She has ripped the head off her teddy bear
And that is only the start of the affair
