truth never forgives the knife-stabbed heart
for its lies bleed out onto drip drop crash explode
into my ears making my crazy-daring
confessions want to escape the gated bars of my teeth
--strive on with no holding back
chained dreams are true alive real reality
as i drift off i stay down on the ground
where shackles strain my now-trapped spirit

only love tries to free hated me
bees buzzing around the sweet flowercorpse
every stone is one more less breath
a witch pressed down by your foolishness
--strive on with no holding back
sweating fright turns to flight internally
in real reality i still stand there sitting

pure evil upturned in white clouds surrounding
rescue Angels not dare come
blinded by seeing through the light is darklessness
i wait for you to wait for me up
no matter moved on and out of our cloud 9
--strive on with no holding back
should i give up this fight of wits and strength?

common never is rare forever
not our love it is between hearts of gold
shining with the sun of morning rise nor set
love is the sky you love me in
--stuck in the middle powerless top, powerless bottom
birds chirp faint in my ear the blinding light black
no holding back i must strive on

I really liked this poem. My favorite part was when you said Common never is rare forever. Really good line. Suggestion: You didn't capitalize you're beginning words for your stanzas.

thank you!! I'm glad you liked it..and i like that line as well....and yes I am aware of the punctuation mistakes (they were on purpose). i was trying out a famous poet's (e. e. cummings) style for this particular piece haha. he's phenomenal (: you should check him out!

Wonderful job and beautifully written, just watch out for run on sentences and captilizing words at the beginning of a stanza.
