Final Countdown (poem)

Sitting around waiting for you has proven my hardest challenge

I worry when you are away from me and I fear it is getting harder to try and break free from this anxiety

Knowing full well the day I offend you will be the longest day of the year

I hold my hand to my chest

Fear has gotten the best of this shaken heart and soul

I have a few good friends

They will stand guard until the end

They will make you thrive for air

They will help you feel a little more secure

Let down your hair

Caress each wave in each strand

Feel the rhythm in the groove

The dogs lay so restlessly

Talking to each other in their sleep

Knowing how soon the earth will end

Until then, they relax

Enjoy what time they have left

Casualties will always happen, so make time the best.

I’m Sure It’s Only A Dream (poem)

Sometimes it’s hard to focus with all this dread

Just like a thousand needles poking into my head

Only daring to struggle holds the threat

My life’s full purposed is to wind up dead

Sometimes I feel older than old man winter

My heart’s glazing over with ice and grows colder

My shoulders bear a weight sinking me deep into soil

Burrowing down inside the earth’s crusty shelter

I hope to hide away from all the devouring sombres

Waking me, screaming out in horrendous torture

It would be nice to be fed from a silver platter

Seeing there’s people live life in pain

No one to help them feel stronger

It hurts to see no one rescued from such broken streets

From walking on glass with no shoes on their feet

I will just close my eyes and drift away into sleep

I’m sure all these horrible things are just a really bad dream

Laying Listlessly (poem)

Image

Some days just are not enough

Hours to play

Can’t keep in touch

Won’t do what they say

So much time to play

Left alone with misery

 

Satin stockings on the chair

Feeling softer than silky hair

Breathe of emotions in the air

Naked on display

No life

No fair

 

Harping on the tiger strings

Forging forward

Opening the gates

Reaching back

Touching ground

Falling through the crack

Never to be found

 

By Fancy Khaos aka Krystal McCollum

Sun Kisses In Dark (poem)

Dressed in the best

Pushing forth toward success

Nothing new captured

Filled up with regrets

Rusty smiles with paper teeth

Finger nails like eggshells

Beneath our feet

The reflection changing

Another life form

Going with the flow

Memory being restored

Temporary files backed up

Uninstalled the good hardware

To make myself good enough

As fake and as phoney

As the shadow on the wall

Mimicking every move

Eventually taking the lead

Pushing me into the corner

Driving me into the ground

Feeling neglected and tormented

Laying there watching helplessly

As the sun wakes the day

Kissing each creation with warmth

Not ever feeling the way

Since I had been told

Shakespear Was Right

 Poem by Fancy Khaos

 

Lights up, eyes open

The film’s beginning to roll

Water breaks, cries, screams

This is where life starts

The character and setting

Welcoming the new baby home

For years of loin clothes; toys broken and thrown

Dogs barking, cats hissing; dwelling is ripped fully apart

The plot, main villain

Schoolings to teach and financing the crude

Keeping the youngster’s tank topped

Skipping a beat; completely mucking things up

The change, still trucking; growing at the speed of light

New friends, fresh looks; “you don’t get their life”

Trying to unleash a new taste in a dull boring light

They grew up too quick

Coming home late, drunk and scarred one night

Forgiving their short-comings

Testing yourself in ways never before known

Caring for them unconditionally, compassionately

Discretely, forbid they ever know

That would make them uncool and geeky

Almost making them want to drool

In the end, it’s all the same

They move out one day

Go their own separate ways

Looking back on what they thought they knew

Not ever having the slightest clue

Until one day they fess up and say

Thanks for everyday you’ve raised my chin

Made me look where I step; suck in my pride and chest

Thanks for never giving up on me

When I’ve done something wrong

Loving each flaw of me

Each unique about you has made me what I am today

 In my heart, you will always stay

The climax of my life was reached

When what came from you passed onto me

Ending the tale, credits will run

The curtain’ll go down, the lights’ll come up

Just then a new character and setting will start

For this tender heart is just one of the movie parts
