This HeartUnder the shade I gathered my heart,
my broken, shattered heart.
And I tossed it into the glowing sea,
terrified of its depth.
But when I glanced over all I saw,
was the trail it left.
A trail of love and light and gold,
a trail that left me in woe.
Demon.Give me the essence of the night;
and the darkness of the lovely day.
For at my core I am a hunter of sorts;
a demon by nature, this soul erupts.
Shower me with your azure tears
as I lurk the corners of your tattered heart.
I sink my teeth in flawless flesh;
And the crimson sweetness just descends.
Forgive me, my love; for I took it all.
I devoured you entirely, exactly as you are.
Tear Me AwayTear me away
I beg you, please.
Understand that this scattered heart
has known only lies and lies alone.
Will you find it in your beating self
the strength to let me forever go?
Once I led the warmth of your tender hand;
fade deep into the blue hues of such water.
The simple love that we knew is gone,
full now of those endless, ebony lies.
The promise was never truly fulfilled,
the moment we crossed that border,
we lost what held ourselves as one.
When God SmilesThe crisp blue of the ocean breeze
the sweetness of the verdant greenery
the coolness of the setting sun
the lively warmth of the running river.
They all pass me by as I sit and gaze,
as I encounter love at every twist and turn,
bliss in every crevice of this lovely little world,
and happiness hidden in the deep within.
I imagine all this and yet so more when God smiles,
when he smiles his beautiful, heart-breaking smile.
A smile so gentle and so lovely that every heart bends,
as every soul reaches up and drapes their essence over him.
MirrorI hope you will indeed forgive me,
For I drew the ashes of your broken heart,
and scattered them far and wide.
It was I who opened the brilliant grave,
it was I who took his corpse in my arms.
And I am sorry that I moved his heart,
wishing to peer inside
I broke the essence that made you mine.
I meant no harm to you, my love,
how could I ever hurt the one I love?
But I cannot ever deny it was, unfortunately, I;
the silenced guilt of it tears me through the night.
It was I who broke the bloodstained glass,
and it was I who bit the tainted, jaded shards.
MurderBeneath the starry night sky
your lovely green eyes were quite the sight.
And though it was your endless soul I sought
you never did accept this fallen heart.
For such things are said to be ill,
and beneath this face there lives a broken will.
But as forever pauses at eternity's gate
Forgive me for this act of hate
one day, I hope you will see,
Your death was the only willing key.
AngelI can't breathe when I glance at him.
The way he smiles, slowly, the corners of his mouth pulling up to reveal ivory-white almost stops me. The way his black hair falls over his shoulders as he leans toward me, his gray eyes glowing. And as he bends down to press his forehead against mine, his hands wrap around my self. Pulling me close, I can feel the rhythm of ours hearts beat in unison and I shake, my thoughts stumbling over each other.
"Why don't you let go of that fear?" he murmurs quietly.
Why, indeed, I muse silently. I glance up back into his eyes, loving the way he reflects everything he is inside. Those two stormy eyes I knew so well, ever since he had sacrificed it all for me. "I'm afraid," I admit. He nods, chuckling quietly. So well did he know me that those two words told him all.
I didn't deserve him, or anyone, for that matter. My only purpose was to serve others, not to chase after any whimsical dreams. I would let it all go if only to grasp the hand of anyone, to save
RoseHere's to you, my lovely one.
I dedicate this rose to you in hopes of claiming your love, the love that has always given me the opportunity to live on. For from the moment I was born you were there, always there, your eyes so bright, your hair so dark, your breasts so full. And you were absolutely stunning, with the slight flush on your checks and pointed nose, the dark color of your flawless skin so rich.
The features of your face were always pleasing to the eye. And among all these people, you chose me to save. You held my hand, the warmth of your blood singing a song, pulling me into your very core. And you were there, always there. You held me through the dark night, and accepted the sacrifice of the gods and the sorrow of my family, and you granted me life. My life belongs to you, I know this, and so each time I am met with your image, your indelible visage, I fall in love with you over and over again.
Because when I dream at night, it is you that fills my mind, your love that fil
UnintentionalIt was unintentional.
I really didn't mean to fall in love, I promise you. All of your insecurities called out to me, and I couldn't help but covet the your silhouette, the outline of your physique. With your dark eyes and knowing smile, even if it was indeed so brief.
But my pride has always been in my way. And as much as I long to reach out to you, I know I can't. Why should I bother you with my petty ideas, my thoughts? You have so much potential waiting to blossom, while I'm afraid of this. These feelings, these thoughts. I have so much I want to accomplish, yet why is it that I always think of you? I'll never be free as long as I wait for you, as long as I watch you.
And I'm sorry.
"I will always, always love you." Dark hair, messy hair. Dark eyes. A man just like any other...but yet all the other. And as much as I suffered, drawing back from all the memories and all the pain I fell into his love instead.
Falling, he caught me easily. Pulling me up into his embrace and filling my
The Beggar And The RobberThe Beggar And The Robber
I run onto the mountain,
I'm faster than the wind
My thought is my Pythia,
My body is an armor
My dream it is my compass
And my faith it's my shield.
I hear a voice, trying to stop me,
He just asks some of my time
"Go Beggar, Leave my mind,
Up, a glow I run to find!"
But what I saw in the dark
Was not a sign or a star
The evil robber's was the thought,
Evil robber, evil fox
He took me up onto his wings,
A joy's laugh onto his lips,
No arms, I had his fire,
And as shield I spelled his name.
Soulless corpses all my foes,
But no peace for me at all
Every night in the dark,
Voices old were stronger back.
Then again I start to run,
Even faster than I can
To the mountain I run back,
To the friend my time asked,
The crazy Beggar, dared to stand.
Rid me of every scar
Suck the night-old whiskey away from all my black and blue
Touch me until I don't feel worthless
All these broken ribs
The fluttering lids of both black eyes
Pray away every awful thing I've done
And lick the salt away from broken skin
The exit wounds of bullets
The little lines of knife bites
Just love me until I'm mad
And kiss me until I'm whole again
The feelings I can't expressTimes like this when I can’t find the rights words.
Times like this when I find myself crying.
As I have no way to express.
But this pencil twirling in my hand.
Sometimes I’ll make art, and proudly show it.
Sometimes I’ll make shit, and quickly destroy it.
With either I find they both seem to end in the same way.
With a simple message, strewed through long and tedious words.
That could be said much simpler, and probably has.
But still I say it, for it’s all I have.
Have you seen my dream?Have you seen my dream?
It's not that big
But it is mine.
Have you heard my opinion?
It's worth two cents
It's worth every dime.
Have you touched my heart?
It is very fragile
But I am willing to share.
Have you seen my dream?
It may not be much
But at least I dare.
What will you do?Through our lives
We get hurt
We get stepped on
We get broken
All the time
We feel empty
We feel numb
We cry out for happiness
All the time
Some of us give up
And end their lives
Some endure all of it
And live in pain
Some stand up tall
And break the cycle of suffering
What will you do?
WORDLESS WORDSThe writer attempts to write
Describing the indescribable
Limiting the limitless
Naming the nameless
A thousand lines of ink
Written a thousand ways
Cannot describe love
The abstract emptiness
The beauty of colour
The sorrow of loneliness
Burn every book
Destroy every line
An alphabet of ashes
Meaningless is knowledge
Worthless are words
Reading what is written
In ignorance remain
The subtle reality
Beyond all language
The GreatsI remember when a great man said, "I have a Dream."
I remember when the starving man, refused to ever eat.
I remember the women on her throne, refused to give up her seat.
I remember the ding, inside that ring, a man no one could beat.
I remember that man, unshackled sore hands, from the south's harsh demands.
I remember the hour, crippled British power, a man who birthed a new land.
I remember the Teddy-Bear, that sailed our fleets to Japan.
I remember the poet, who created the sonnet, ink were his tears.
I remember the date, a new style of paint, when he cut off his own ear.
I remember you, a generation anew.
All the feats, you can do.
Be a saint, of new dawns fate,
immortalized in time;
Be a Great.
Last night,I broke every bone in my body
so I could have a reason to drown
in the isolated ocean inside me.
when my dilapidated lungs finally caved in,
I swam ashore and crawled across the polluted sand.
Only glass-edged skin
and salt-licked eyelashes
can help me now.
Panic AttackI don't know
It just hurts
Kill the monsters inside of me
Don't let them grow
Please, you're my only hope
I cant help but to yell
I'm out of my damn mind
What's that smell?
Smell my skin burning, I'm in hell
Oh what to believe, what to believe
You or this self-destroying symphony
God, save me
I'm just a fucking mistake
I cant go any further
I'm drowning in a salty lake
What is it like to be sane
To be at peace, in control
to feel no pain
I try to break free but the voices pull me back
I struggle and scream
But my self-worth are their snacks
Leaving Southampton She was in the kitchen when he stumbled in noisily, tripping as he went past the shelves and catching the edge of the table to keep himself from falling.
Pretending not to hear the stream of curses that followed, she kept her eyes fixed on the dishes, letting her hand trail in the soapy water. There was a loud scraping of wood against grimy concrete as he drew a chair and collapsed into it. At this she looked up, and after a moment's hesitation, she said, unnecessarily, "You've been drinking."
He clutched his head and said nothing. He hadn't shaved in weeks and stank of sweat and alcohol; he looked much older than his eighteen years.
They sat in silence for a while. Then he announced, loudly, "Fuck."
She didn't bother to tell him off. She just waited. And jumped when he suddenly brought his fist down, hard, onto the table.
