If I call you beautiful…

Do flowers bloom within your worried eyes
surrounding you with color, with thoughts
Looking past the mirror to that place you have been,
that you long to be again

Do you bite your lip,
looking within, seeking past the darkness,
subconsciously smoothing...Read More

Bite your lip
    It's better that you bite your lip,
    Than to speak with words that slander.
    They could defame someones good name,
    So, choose all your words with candour.

Bite your lip
Whimper not
Drive your fingernails into your palm
Hold back the sobs

Stay under control
Maintain even breathing
Suppress sighs, moans, groans
Shoulders straight, stance erect...

Emotion wells up within, seeking release
Loss confounds you, overwhelms, the abyss looms 
Convulsing heaves, sobs wrack the soul 
Trembling...Read More

Change
Shots rang out but there's no gun
Still you hurt on everyone
In your soul the sparks are good
You are not even trying

You feel the knife in your gut
You are scared of what you want
You bite your lip and hold your tongue

And you keeping giving up and I keep giving in 
This is why Adam and Eve have sinned
I dig my nails into your skin
I bite your lip until it sinks
That I am here to stay for you and for me

Premium Member QUEEN OF CROISSANTS


Known for miles around
As the Queen of Croissants
She’d perfected her art for years
But at what cost
More physically demanding than you might think
She gave the best years of her youth
Working at a small town bakery
The strain on her hands and body...Read More

The New Day
Did yesterday pass without your smile,
Nor a kind word did you speak?
Did you list all your troubles inside your mind,
And harbor them there for a week?

Did you frown on a child or a neighbor next door,
Who cheerfully acknowledged 'Good Day?'
Or...Read More

Premium Member Hush Now Sailor's Child
Hush now, my sweet child, 
 tho the wind howls wet and wild,
 the snows will fall again upon this barren land
 while inside we make our firmest stand.
Warm by the fire blaze, 
 the story will again be raised,

Celluloid Fright
"Help me," shrieked THE FLY with the human head
Eight-legged death was approaching
as he struggled, trapped in a spider web

There's horrors all round,
there's horrors everywhere
Close your eyes if you must,
if you do easily scare

No one can hear you scream in space...Read More

Joy in Weakness
And here you had me thinking
That I was the scum of the earth
That you were the Queen of the Night
And that you had everything all figured out

And here you had me dreaming
Of turning back the clock night after night
Hating myself...Read More

Premium Member Let It Go
Let it go
Bite your lip until it bleeds
Even though you're lost,
let her find the one she needs

I know it's hard
to always keep her at arm's length,
but you must sacrifice
your own feelings for her sake

Break a smile
Keep her thinking you're okay

Salt in the eyes hurts more than salt in a wound. 
You bite your lip and rub your twinkling eyes attempting to keep those secrets of yours locked away.
 Sea waves churn behind the whites of your eyes.

WET DREAM

You walk in
and meet my stare
my body comes alive
I want to touch you 

You cross the room
coming towards me
I’m aching deep inside
I want to feel you 

You reach for me
and touch my hand
and shock me like a live wire

Mazel tov Cinda

You chose to give love to another soul in the world

But there is something going on
You just don’t know...Read More

That moment
You smile

You lift your shoulders

You blink

You bite your lip

I sure I know your feelings

Can't let this moment slip


Is it all about the timing

Will cupid shoot his bow

Shall I taste your lips today

Or again let courage go


For I have faced some...Read More

A Whole New World
Take me away,
Help me escape,
Show me the world,
Show me my fate.

Carry me out,
Show me the land,
Show me you're no boy,
Show me you're a man.

Bring me hope,
Release my fear,
Give me love,
Don't bring me tears.

Promise you care,
Promise me forever,

TRAPPED
In a small coffin all alone.
This is your life,you should have known.
You sit there a while
But then start to panic.
As you choke on vile,
You feel you've gone manic
Claw at the roof, 
Whats the point? you've already failed.
You become aloof.

If You Never Try
Sometimes everything is a lie
The way he touched you
Kissed you and ran his fingers in your hair
Sometimes your heart breaks 
It's all in despair

He walks away
You bite your lip to hold it back
Tears form in your eyes
Cloud your vision and...Read More
