I Was Once LovedI was once a child. I had two parents who
cared for me. Every day they would wrap their
arms around me and tell me how much they
Life was perfect. Maybe not what others
Would consider sweet bliss, but I was happy.
Nothing in the world could ever touch me
But life isn't perfect, and neither are
people. For this reason, I cannot help
but say goodbye to everything I know.
Goodbye, Miss Evans, the little old lady from next door
Goodbye, Police officer, who greets me every morning.
Goodbye, little blue-jay, sitting on the branch just outside my window.
Goodbye, Charlie, the little tabby cat that lives under the house.
Goodbye, Mother, who after you lost your love, you became an alcoholic.
Goodbye, Father, who left a desperate mother and me to the deadly grips of debt.
I was once a child
Who would demand a beautiful song to
be played from my music box as I rested
my head to fall asleep along with a
I was once loved
No EvilThe trembling of sweet desolation.
This gorgeous world has yet to show true hue
And beauty is wasted into two pools of white.
These pains, this torture, how can one think to fight?
I see not, therefore I see no evil.
Only silence may sing of unpleasant isolation.
For language and speech has never held me true,
So light a white path for me on this night
And I'll express to you my words as I write.
I speak not, therefore I speak no evil.
My world holds no beat of fixation
The world is only something I can view
Sight is dull and harmonies shine so bright!
Lips move, but it is sound that I spite.
I hear not, therefore I hear no evil.
Do Not Depart, Sweet MemoriesThey said ignorance is blissful,
But I strive toward all you knew.
You worked so hard to create,
A life and strict set of morals.
I respect your honest bravery,
I hope for your knowledge.
Your departure has taught me more
Than anything that I could read.
I hope that I can achieve just
Because you inspired me to
Create a life that'll make you proud.
You protected me when I was
Scared, yet you never could kick
That parasite. It gripped her
Life and dragged her down until death
Did the addiction part away.
When I see that drug I cannot breath.
Memories flood back to me of
Those days of foolish ignorance.
The way the smoke twists and swirls.
That smell draws the hospital bed
And all I can see is you.
Do not depart sweet memories.
I'll replace the pain with happiness.
I was young, sweet memories,
Why could I not understand?
The dreaded stench of cigarettes
Was what reminded me of you?
I've let go of all the pain and hurt.
Do not depart, sweet memories.
Colorless, Speechless, DeafWhat if this world was colorless,
And painters let their paint run dry,
No longer could they shade that sky
Or add beauty to this darkness of mine.
What safe place would we call a shrine?
What if this world was speechless,
And writers let the pencil fall
No longer would this world recall
The lessons that we could learn,
Or the knowledge we so desperately yearn.
What if this world deaf,
And music could not thrive
Because what we lacked was the drive
And motivation slowly fails.
So this voice of beauty gently ails.
There shall be no divide in art
Because our world is not that crucible
And our creations shall not be reducible
Simply because one who fails to understand
How much influence we can withstand.
Till the Morning Sunrise"Scream and shout till the morning sun rise,
A gun shot til the good moon dies.
Chaos, chaos; forget all peace.
Be cautious of this blood drenched feast.
Obey this word and you shall see,
A world so fragile will end on three.
Children sing and mothers see
First one, then two, now historic number three.
While soldiers lay in misery they'll dream of a feast
And their gentle mother's warm-hearted peace!
Slaughter and slay until a good friend dies
Condemn yourself like a cruel leaders rise.
Blood stains a good man, you see
He'll be presented with this deadly feast.
Shriek out like a banshee, number three, number three!
No begging, no cries, be a man death is peace.
Tears stream down gentle eyes then up the nukes rise.
Dropped the cries when the calm sky dies
Yearn the magnificence of the bright sun rise
Sing and sigh that beautiful song of peace
Stars that crash and tranquility dies
Stain your clothes with this sweet feast
One; hell, two; overdue, what greed will end on three?
Wash away the
The EscapeWalkin' out onto that gallow brought back memories of so much... it began with that faitful night where I had stood at the starting line of the most important race of my life. That race? Freedom. I was playin' with lady luck and she--along with the world--seemed to be against me. I hurry along the trail avoiding everyone and everything. The walk was a long one as I travled from south to north. However theres one thing I couldn't stop thinkin' bought...
In my dreams I'm taken away from my horrid life as a slave into a meadow. Light green grass and spots of yellow bloom from the earth as the wind softly whispers the song of freedom in my ear. Closin' my eyese I know this title doesn't matter. this is my safe place...the place where skin color doesn't play a roll. Where nobody can touch me or hurt me. I can stay here forever and it wouldn't get old. I'd just stare up at the clouds softly floating by the burning sun. I could feel its warmth against my skin warming my heart and dragging awa
55 word short storyThe sound of nothingness wasn't as frightening as the empty spot on the bed. Next, I saw his silhouette rummaging through the jewelry box. Love? No such thing existed. I sat up watching him shove the sparkling diamonds into his pocket. Love? If there were no such thing then why did I let him go?
Don't Ask, Don't TellThe crackling of a firethe smell of freshly cut pine burning and the smoke that twisted upwards into the endless darkness only lit by the stars that burned millions of miles away. Moonless, yet the sky still had some spark to it, as if the personality didn't rest within moon nor star, but behind it all, safety behind the stars.
I cannot hear well any longeryet it was not age that had captured this blessing but the thundering boom of missiles and bombs above me. I cannot see well any longer but unlike my terrible lack of a sharp-ear, war had not wrapped it cold fingers around it's tiny neck and strangle it. Then there was my body, old, aged. I was no longer a handsome young man at the prime of his life. I was but a fragile old man with a heart that had never been mended by the touch of a woman, yet here I lay surrounded by my grandchildren, my children, and my aging wife...
I'm not a bitter elder, a quiet one perhaps, only when I remind myself...of the old days... am I resen
SestinaLet the darkness rise into the light.
Let your arms that raised me to fly
drop me back to the earth and cast away.
Let the self-caused heart-ache be my reminder.
For I have become what I refuse to believe,
I have become heart sick, and I am to blame.
I felt so safe hidden away
because your whisper held no reminder
of everything that enabled me to fly.
With you I could believe.
Alone now, silently wishing for light
Forgive my young age, but age is no longer to blame.
I need no reminder.
of how high I once could fly.
Because now I struggle to believe
that the darkness can be illuminated by your light.
My shoulders rests the blame,
and I'll let this fault it lead me away.
Begin where I had fallen from you, from the start, so far away.
Do you trifle with innocence, when they still believe
that only you could make them fly?
You brought darkness, when I believed it was light.
Now you lay on a lonely list, a simple reminder,
that I am the only one who can bear this blame.
I wont continue w
Every time i look to you.Every time I look to you
You're charming yet another
But every time I glance once more
My heart quietly flutters
Your smile it melts
My hardest resolve
And my foolish hopes
Soften the harshest of blows
Your eyes draw me in
An inescapable pool of light
I'm too weak to move on
Ill put up no fight
I remember how it felt,
To be safe in your arms
I crave it once more
To be shielded from harm
That time was so perfect
How did it go so wrong?
We could've been so good together
And our romance was young
Then you went away
Acted like nothing had happened
We all knew it did
But the memory's been flattened
I didn't see you for weeks
But when I saw you again
It was like you didn't know me
As if I was to blame
It's clear you've moved on
And I just can't let go
How did I come so close
Just to hear 'no'?
I talked to your friends
They told me your thoughts
You liked my body, they said
But my personality fell short
Really I shouldn't stand for it
I thought I knew better
To let a guy treat me like this
LiveStop thinking, just for a while.
Stop worrying, about what'll happen.
Don't look at the past, and don't strive for the future.
Live in the today.
Live in the now.
Dont worry about anything else except that you have a life.
You have your life.
You have to live that life.
Dance, draw, write, express yourself, cry, smile, love, live, eat, work, and play.
Why, care about anything else.
Why strive for the future when you cant even live in the present.
The world is for everyone, so make it yours.
No more regrets.
No more regrets.
No more regrets.
Live..........just enjoy it
For you hold its precious key.Our eyes meet across the room
And in that single moment I know
My heart will be forever prisoner
You will never let me go
Your gaze is like Medusa's:
Can turn mere mortal to stone
Except I have come here willingly
The full dangers I had known
Your eyes are like fire
Burning chestnut in the gloom
Scorching straight into my withered soul
My hope and spirit anew
Your smile is dazzling
Bright like exploding stars
It blinds me with its light and truth
Reaching deeply from afar
Your body is that of Adonis
Carved by angels hands
Yet wrought from stone it's full of life
A perfectly made man
Your voice is soft like velvet
Gentle, calm and smooth
Your words said with a graceful ease
And carefully thought through
Your personality, it seems,
Was built to gel with mine
We compliment like yin and yang -
Our true selves bare to shine
We share so many interests,
Yet are lives are so apart
But wherever you may go in life
You will never truly depart
Although you keep me prisoner
With all the things you
The Other SideThe Other Side
Your vision is so clouded
By the rules of your mind
Your perceptions shrouded
Ignoring people of my kind
Your standards set in place
No concept of this reality
Of my torn internal space
Crushed in my lost self-pity
You say care-free things
Words dancing in the air
It's my heart that stings
The cold daggers of despair
Pain building deep inside
Lingering behind my eyes
Which I struggle to hide
As my lonely life now dies
Always point out other guys
Of how they fit your plan
Good enough for the prize
For I'm not the better man
I see how you look at them
Trying so hard not to break
Every thought I must condemn
Buried for harmonies sake
Talking of their appearance
For that's all you care for
Fighting with perseverance
Can I really take much more?
Each comment that you speak
Gouges holes across my soul
Because I'm just the freak
That pointless ugly troll
Kept away and out of range
Out of view and of sight
There's too much to change
Before I'll ever be right
Yet I can't find acc
If ignorance is bliss,
And Death's a sweet kiss,
Then does one lead to the other?
If death knocks at your door,
And one does not notice,
Then will you live forever more?
The oars breaking the Styx silenced,
Resting on the shore?
And the scissors lay dull on the table,
And the trio have left their home,
Leaving the people of the world to wonder
What will become of their cable.
Thus the people rejoiced,
Death was no more,
A curse in the guise of a blessing.
And ignorantly forward,
The people did go,
Not realizing the errors if their messing.
For life without end is like the same without beginning,
As the differences are already gone.
Without stopping their cannot be starting,
An incomplete loop, continuing too long.
And after many years,
the people grew weary,
Of all the life they had lived.
For they had all lived,
The lives of a thousand generations,
Tired and worn beyond mortal limitations,
They gave up, but could no longer die.
Were you really there?Everything is long gone,
As you're passing by ,
I'm still walking on this road, all alone,
I'm still trying to move on.
An intruder in my mind,the ghost of the old times,
Is reminding me about how you used to say,
That you really care.
All this time were you really there?
The night I let love growAs the dawn broke
I took your hand in mine
It was a tentative gesture
Of our romance, a sure sign
Hazel eyes met brown
Cutting through the inky night
I saw your smile break across your face
And heard my own contented sigh
We gazed up at the stars that eve
As they sparkled in the sky
I curled my body close to yours
And watched the world go by
You snaked an arm around my waist
Claiming me as yours
You made me feel safe and loved
Protected and secure
Our heartbeats synced perfectly
Equally as fast
With foundations as strong as ours
This love was made to last
Neither of us slept that night
As we lay in a lovers embrace
I wanted to remember every detail
Every angle of his face
We talked little then
Silence was our voice
We both fell in love that night
Though neither through choice
The early morning sunbeams
Crept through the window, pale and pretty
The time to rise had come too soon
I could remain there for eternity
Eventually he had to go
Back to where he should've been
He crept away so si
Pinky Promise "Pinky promise?"
They link pinky fingers. Then one went to touch thumbs and the other one went to bite her thumb. The end result was his thumb on her nose.
Giggling "what are you doing?"
"Apparently petting your nose," he starts to move his thumb in a circular motion on the tip of her nose, "what were you trying to do?"
"Bite my thumb to finish the pinky promise."
"I've never heard of that. I touch thumbs."
"To complete the promise and it's supposed to symbolize an unbreakable vow since circles are typically harder to break. Why would you bite your thumb?"
"That's the way I was taught." She thinks a bit further causing
Your Bloody Ending
Why are you crying?
Why are you yelling?
Look deep inside of my eyes, do you think I care?
Honestly, tell me, what are you seeing there?
A wild smile on my face,
A burning fire in my eyes,
I just can't wait to end up your lies!
The hatchet shines into the silver moonlight,
The wind blows so reassuring this night,
I hear your hard breath, I can feel the fear in it,
I see your tears racing down your face, while you are begging for mercy.
Don't be scared my love,
Aren't you the one that asked for this?
It will come true in a trice.
Started to cleave your chest,
The blood runs, while you are screaming your lungs out.
Dear, please, shut up,
I'm trying to tear your heart out!
So you did with mine,
It's my turn now, we must keep the line
Your cyan eyes, shined so bright,
Sparkled in the dark, like a guiding light,
They turned to crimson, they look so dead
Your angelic smile, fade away forever,
Your face is drown in blood, you're gone from now,
But I think like this is so much bett
Let me WriteI paint pictures with words,
I can twist and bend them until
They fly high like a sky full of birds.
When darkness falls, my words twist.
I can only hope for a reaction
Of emotional mist.
My pencil knows no bounds
No softness, no darkness is discriminated
Against what words, what sounds, what grounds .
Close your eyes and let me sing
A story of pride, lustful sin, and greed.
Offering no gift but words to bring.
Let me write, let me write.
I'll gain the upper hand someday
For my progress knows no might.
