Jealousy There was a kid who was once friends with a monster
His only friend, the first one, indeed
Invisible to others, to his father and his mother
But happiness, would there lives lead
They had cherished each other's emotions
They had learned to love both their devotions
But then one day, the lad went away to play,
And it all went downhill from there
SecondsTime goes fast
Rapid and vast
It has no mind, no body
Only eyes to see us
Grow and grow and grow; quickly
And before we know it
It flew away
Above the land, above the sea
Above the stars, above the skies
Above you and me
So please, I beg, don't part now
Stay here for a little while longer
We don't have all the time in the world
RiseThey're still here
Appearing among light and dark
Glimpses and flickers of the bright past
And a bleak future
Persona There once was a world
With only me, myself and I
Yes, only me, myself and I
I hated me, thus I killed me
Then I killed myself
And now there is no more of me, myself or I
Remorse Her throat was dry; burning
She hacked and coughed as flames consumed her
Screaming in pain, inside and outside
Crying tears, bloody or clear
And the burning, ungodly witch nailed to a cross
Bestowed a spell upon all before turning to ashes
For vengeance was all she had on her mind
But when she regretted her curse
It was too late, there was no more time
No 'redo', 'undo', 'end game', 'restart' or 'replay'
Just 'continue' was left for her
Green with EnvyIt came, in the night, in the day,
In flames, bursting and igniting all in its path
Leaving behind only ash and leaves
In the sole shade of green
It came, and swallowed his heart whole
And though his face was red as a beet
His heart lost colour and became tainted fast
Since that green flame of envy
Burnt his heart 'til it was no more than black
BondsBy my side, sleeping peacefully
With a silly grin on your face
While the sun stands out
In the brilliant blue sky
And your hand on top of mine
Entwined, in warmth
Oh, how I hate it
Why do you look so happy?
You disgust me
But my lips are sealed
And I, in no motion, do nothing but wonder
I can end it all now and forever
With a simple flick of a knife
And yet my heart tells me not to
As if I, of all creatures, had a heart of a mortal
It's absurd, ridiculous
Foolish and idiotic
I, a cold-blooded, remorseless being
The one who is told to bring fear and catastrophe
Has a heart of a mortal dwelling within me?
It's impossible, it's insane
Just one scratch on the throat is all it takes,
But why is it that,
I do not have the strength nor the audacity to do so?
GrieveHe looked me in the eye,
With his bum sat on the street
And in his ragged clothes he said,
"Don't you pity me."
A coin from my pocket, that was in my hand
Had quickly fell onto dry land
He had a glare upon his face, and so I backed away
"I am a lost soul," he said,
"The perfect castaway."
DreamerWhen I first awoke in this strange new world,
It was dark
The only light shining bright, was the moon and stars;
My sole night lights
And the one I first saw, had their backed turned to me
That's how it was, that's how it started, and that's how it'll always be
O cursed web of fate, why must thou bestow upon me;
A dream that wasn't meant to be dreamed, nor captured
I who can't stand, walk or run
I who started to crawl; I with two hands and two feet
Yet I have the audacity to dream that perhaps one day I'll carry the world with these hands
I, the helpless and hopeless; the stupid and careless
I, the one with strange dreams
Death isn't a fresh perspectiveI saw my mother
swallowing something small
when I was just a child
The anguish in her eyes
faded, as she told me
it was just a
with a little extra kick
maybe years later,
that's how I convinced
to swallow fifteen,
give me a fresh perspective;
in the end,
my breath reeked
instead of mint.
Our Captain (Robin Williams Remembrance Poem)Oh, Captain
We’ve never had,
A Friend like You.
You came to us as an Alien,
from the Planet Ork.
But through the Years,
You made Home in Our Hearts
We Saluted You over the Airwaves
We Watched You get Sucked in a Game,
And Haul Your Family in the Big Rolling Turd.
You were a British Nanny,
Who was actually their Dad.
A Business Man,
Who was actually Peter Pan.
A Crazy Scientist,
Making a Being called Flubber.
Who Just Wanted to be Free.
You were a Robot,
Made of Rusty Old Parts.
We’ve never had,
A Friend like You.
You became the Man of the Year,
And the Wax Figurine Exhibit
Of the Twenty-Sixth President
Of the United States of America.
You Were the World’s Greatest Dad,
And the World’s Greatest Therapist.
You Had a License to Wed
And be a Kid,
Who Grew Up Four Times Too Fast.
You only Won One Oscar.
But that’s okay.
We Love all Your Other Works Anyways…
We Will Miss You
to a crucifix
on the left side
of his neck
tells me he can end all
of your suffering -
and i look at him
and i cross my arms, thinking
he can't even do this
DoormatI let you walk
All over me
Like the floor
Beneath your feet
And I never complain
The floor doesn't
If the floor complained
When you walked on it
You would be very annoyed
And you would probably
So I don't complain
Because I don't want
To be replaced
And I let you
Push me around
Like a cart
Through a shop
And I never push back
The cart doesn't
If the cart pushed back
When you pushed it
You would get hurt
And you would probably
So I don't push back
Because I don't want
To be left alone
Now, and forever more
Who lets you
Wipe your feet on my face
I love you
But I question
If you love me back
Because who would love
A dirty old Doormat?
It Trapped Her, It Released HerWhen I was younger, and little girl, I wanted a little brother.
So when she got home, I excitedly ran down stairs to tell my mother
She looked at me nervously, and brushed my question away.
“Honey, I don't have time now, we'll talk about it another day.”
I was slightly disappointed because my friends all had younger siblings,
I only had an older sister who tried her best to ignore me.
But that day she heard what I asked my mother and after dinner, pulled me in her room.
And with a sneer she whispered silently, “Mother sent our little brother to heaven too soon.”
At the age of nine, with a child's mind, I had no idea with that meant.
“Is that why Daddy went away, because he misses him?”
“Daddy got depressed and died,” she replied with a scowl,
“But don't be sad, he's in the clouds, he's with our brother now.”
Days went by and I remained silent,
yet I could see the light in my mother's eyes no longer lit.
After my question she w
I died todayI died today
Took my own life
I was tired
I was desperate
And now I'm dead
People never cared
So I left them behind
Now a new life awaits
Beyond the gates of Hell
SkinnyI wish you'd believe me,
When I tell you you're pretty,
That you don't need to skip a meal or run 7 miles,
Just so you can be skinny,
You talk about how you hate yourself,
You wish you could be stunning, beautiful, gorgeous.
You think that if you looked like a model,
That you'd never be lonely,
Everyone would love you.
You think you d get that guy you ve been dreaming of,
Maybe mommy and daddy wouldn't be so harsh if they had a pretty little girl.
You re skin and bone,
But that is not good enough,
You need less and less,
And every pound that disappears,
You begin to lose yourself in a vicious cycle.
Until you re consumed and it eats away at you.
I beg you to listen to me,
I want you to know that you mean everything,
But you don't care,
And then when the ambulances came,
And carried you away...
There was nothing more I could say...
I guess you were unaware,
That you were already beautiful.
Breathing RoomI leave chrysanthemums
scattered at your feet on tile floor
like the pencil shavings piled
on your desk.
"The flower of death,"
with Rorschach roses on your knuckles
and the hint of a warrior
in the line of your lips,
you sketch bears with open jaws
and black-shadow eyes
in the margins of your math book
with permanent ink.
The hooded abyss of your gaze
you can't bring yourself to say:
Love is short
and prone to fading.
It's a good thing I don't mind breathing life
into negative spaces.
Little Birdie, Please Look AwayStop staring at me, please
Though you have beautiful eyes
Round, black and bold
Not showing the secrets you hold
But please do,
Stop reading my mind like a book
Searching for sins I've committed
It's only fair to do so,
I'm human, thus I sin like others
Stop having high hopes and expectations as well,
For fate only knows what I may become
So may I ask again, for you to stop staring at me
From a branch whilst the snow falls upon you
Please stop staring into my heart,
With soulless, beady eyes
Please do stop,
My little bird
