So this is a game where someone gets six words and has to write a poem including all six, and then leave six more for the next person

I'll start

The words are: stars, burn, death, cold, white, golden

kavi + alex + noir ~ve|vim~ (percybluefood) | 148 comments Are you jealous of me?
Why are you being mean to me?
Everyone has a Dark side I know

But they also have a light side too
I know you probably don't think I'm right
but please believe me

Do you know what the color Green symbolizes?
It symbolizes harmony.
Why can't we all just live in peace and harmony?

((sorry if this poem doesn't make sense, I just threw in some words XD))

You, Pretty, everyone, cute, Dark, people

~Akweley♡Mazarae♥~★☆★oblivion★☆★~I CAN'T BREATHE~ (nala13) | 322 comments They never call me pretty
they look at brown skin
see slowly forming double chin
and I know everyone sees what i do
but still I wonder
they never call me pretty
don't they see the way my smile
covers up the dark scars on
hearts that have never felt love
and bodies used to stares
by everyone that dared to lay their
eyes on the weird looking girl,
and I wonder
how people cannot see the beauty
that is in the kindness of every
gaze I bestow upon them
every "I love you" that escapes my lips
why can't I be appreciated too
they never call me pretty
and I don't want them too

Words:
Peace, Love, Happiness, blue, ocean, sky


kavi + alex + noir ~ve|vim~ (percybluefood) | 148 comments Why can't we just have some peace?
Why can't we all just love each other?
I just want everyone to feel happiness.
I want us to be with each other.

And have fun and laughter,
right under the blue sky.
I want us all to go to the beach.
And play in the ocean,
Just like we used to.

Words:

Fun, laughter, sadness, friends, family, love


~Akweley♡Mazarae♥~★☆★oblivion★☆★~I CAN'T BREATHE~ (nala13) | 322 comments joyfully my best friend
walks up to me and says,
"long time no see"
she hugs me, squeezes me
tight around the middle,
and for a second, I cannot breathe

I try to choke out a,
"glad to see ya", but
the laughter in her face
brings out sadness from
old days, when we would
lay in bed and say that
we wish it would all end
then I realize that that was yesterday

I force a fake laugh,
and she seems to understand
that i've forgotten how we lasted
as friends for so long
she says, "follow me"
I'll teach you to have fun
and my re-education course
has finally begun

we do a self-exploration
staying away from the sticky stuff,
like hurt, and pain, and family
and she finds our old frenemy
points, laughs, asks, "love?
who could love ugly old me"
and I laugh with her, because it's been so long
and it finally feels good
so I play our favorite song

"The knife goes chop chop chop
If I miss the spaces in-between
my fingers will come off"
except, this is not a game
and we don't play with fingers
"isn't this fun?!" she shouts
as the world twirls about and about
I wake up collapsed on my mother's couch
hoping it was all a dream
I look down at my arm
and let out a scream
My best friend has left her mark
I guess this time she wanted to stay
she's tired of me kicking her out
of the meds drivng her away
I tell myself not again,
but in the corner of my I see
my best friend walking up to me


Words:
palace, kingdom, sky, forever, heartbreak, selfish

I had a kingdom up in the sky
I sat on the golden throne of my golden palace
I held my golden scepter and ate golden food
I looked out over my golden world through golden eyes
I thought I could see everything
I thought my kingdom was forever
I didn't know
I didn't know about how heartbreak can tear through your soul
Smash your glasses to the ground like they're nothing
Just jeweled pieces at your golden feet
And when you look up
When you raise your eyes
There is only heartbreak
And your whole world is shattered like a fist to the face
And you're left staggering
And nothing can fix it
And you can't believe
That it was you, that it was all on you
But for a second you look down
And you wonder if all that gold
Broke this world
If all that gold
Touched your heart more than it should
If all that gold
Spoke some demon talk to your soul
If all that gold
Had shattered many before it shattered you
If all that gold
Made you too damn selfish

Words:
Blue, broken, bottle, soul, darkness, wall

I don't know if this touched me because it's hella awesome, or because I'm just overly me, lol, but it's good


~Akweley♡Mazarae♥~★☆★oblivion★☆★~I CAN'T BREATHE~ (nala13) | 322 comments I stare down into the well
as if I stare long enough
I will somewhere find my soul
hidden deep deep down in this
dark, dank hole

I peer over the edge a little farther
wonder if maybe it's stuck to the walls
wondering if maybe I will fall
and if someone would find me laying
broken into a million pieces at the bottom
or will I disintegrate like mold

I wipe my hand against the side
and shards of regret like
smashed beer bottles on the side
of the red corvette
that I won't live long enough
to become rich enough to get
pierce my skin
and blood that was once blue
turns red decides to join the darkness
and my heart does too
as I say goodbye
to you

Words:
white, dull, alive, ground, flicker, beginning

Bookcrazy ~ So what? I'm still a rock star~ | 526 comments Mod
I'm sitting alone in the dark with my cat
Is it a gun, is it a light?
The shining metal keeps me still.
How I wish this was a tower, not a stone cold
Basement.
And now I'm sick in the stomach, green,
And sick in my head, red and blue
And dots and sparks and lines.
Maybe my head will float away like a balloon.
I scrabble for more, but there is no more.
Not in the basement.
And I don't want to stand up, don't want to leave.
I clutch the cat tighter.
He tries to bite me and I drop him on the floor.
It's all in my head.
The world is in my head, swimming like a fish.
Cats love fish.
Still I wonder,
Is it a gun, is it a light?
Click.

Standing on an edge,
Promised that I can fly
But looking from way up here
I can only think I'm gonna fall, oh dear

Taking deep breaths,
Just need to breathe
And I jumped into the sky
To find that I couldn't fly

Falling down, down to the earth
Crashing into the world
Green spinning close and fast
But at least I jumped at last

Next words: (well we accidentally did the same words so Ima just put the words from before) fly, fall, breathe, sky, green, world


~Akweley♡Mazarae♥~★☆★oblivion★☆★~I CAN'T BREATHE~ (nala13) | 322 comments Meeting you was like
fresh air in lungs that had never learned to breathe
terrifying
invigorating
you introduced me into a whole new world
full of sunflowers
still waters
green pastures
you taught my heart how to fly
right when it had almost decided to die
then you told me to trust you
and just let go
fall into your arms
that you'd take me to whole new worlds
I fell
But these were worst than the old
because you left me to fend for myself
lost, under unfamiliar skies
with a heart that no longer wants to die

Words: call, answer, peace, regret, forgiveness, open

Bookcrazy ~ So what? I'm still a rock star~ | 526 comments Mod
If I call
Will you answer?
I'm staring down at my phone and I'm so damn tired of the regret
The things I never did
Because I was too scared to see the ending of my ways
But now
Even if my way is wrong
I'm looking for peace
I'm looking for closure
I'm picking up the phone
I'm open to regret
I'm looking for forgiveness
I'm apologizing from the bottom of my broken heart
And your words are a slap to the face


Words: slick, concrete, broken, words, eyes, distance

So this is kinda random but I'm bored

He slunk in like a cat
Heart set on murder
And for hours he sat
Ready to pounce

And when the time was right,
He stabbed her side,
Disappearing into the night
The girl's blood pooling like a lake

And as her ginger hair
Was stained redder and redder,
She looked to space, far out there
Dying, but seeing the purple sky

Next words: slipping, afraid, yellow, sun, turtle, sink

~Akweley♡Mazarae♥~★☆★oblivion★☆★~I CAN'T BREATHE~ (nala13) | 322 comments I trusted you
I was scared
like a newborn turtle
exploring the world outside its shell
for the first time

I looked at you
afraid
as the sun shined down
on lil ole me
I thought i would drown
in its beauty

I laughed
stepping out
on smooth sand
slipping
where the water hits the earth
I thought it was paradise

I didn't know
that the bright yellow sun
wouldn't shine forever
that the waves would pull me in
and I would sink
down to the bottom

I trusted you
now look at me
floating along the bottom
of the deep blue sea

Words: crooked, smile, slice, open, ice, spell

♥ Emily ♥   (emily_turtle) | 429 comments Mod
Your smile was sharp
like a blade
It sliced open my heart,
painfully crooked,
and after the pain subsided,
there was nothing more than an ice spell
where your grin used to be

Words: silver, tired, water, moon, strong, stars


~Akweley♡Mazarae♥~★☆★oblivion★☆★~I CAN'T BREATHE~ (nala13) | 322 comments Tired, the moon's light waned
It was sick of being in the sun's shadow
It started every week strong
Controlling even water
But soon even the stars
shone brighter
and it wondered why
it continued to glow
would silver ever be more treasured
than gold?

Words: peace, love, happiness, ducks, hides, hello

They're sitting by the fire in their ratty clothes
And singing
And singing
They're snapping dirty fingers, hands in the air
Peace, love
Peace, love
The world may fall but they couldn't care less
This is about
Happiness
The bombers scream over the ruins
I duck
I close my eyes
They keep singing against the screaming
I wish they'd run and hide
But no
No
No
They can't stand this anymore
And they might as well sing till they die
No, no, no
Hands to the sky
Hello, hello
And when the bomb falls from its metal case
To wipe a hole in the human race
Against the war horn's cry they spun and twirled
They raised their hands and they sing hello
They sing hello
To the end of the world

Words: world, bones, great, stun, gift, fall


~Akweley♡Mazarae♥~★☆★oblivion★☆★~I CAN'T BREATHE~ (nala13) | 322 comments They told me the world was built on hope
full of sunshine and flowers, happiness, love
But all I see are bones
creaking, rotting skeletons
of a world that once knew love


They told me that it was a gift
That many great people fall from grace
and I was lucky to be assured of success
I don't know what kind of gift that is
that tears my soul and stuns my heart
till my lungs can't breathe
how am I still alive

They told me I would be able to say goodbye
that they wouldn't leave me without warning
But I am alone, lonely, in this world
and I don't feel great at all
why did you leave me

Words: torn, wind, window, soul, nostalgia, gone


~Akweley♡Mazarae♥~★☆★oblivion★☆★~I CAN'T BREATHE~ (nala13) | 322 comments @Emily, my fault, I was writing my poem and didn't refresh the page, I didn't know you had done one too, lol

My soul is torn
between simply watching the wind
howl against the window
or giving into the feeling
of nostalgia
that tells me just to walk outside
and drift away on the wind
and leave everyone to wonder
why I'm gone

Words: Fire, hoarse, breathe, tear, tired, house

Bookcrazy ~ So what? I'm still a rock star~ | 526 comments Mod
I am a soldier
Firm and proud I ride my mount
For my country
I swore
I trained, I was broken down and built up once again
I am a commander
I rose because of my diligence
I will do right by my men
They will all come back alive because of me
This village is full of resistance
I know because Intelligence says so
Intelligence isn't wrong
My men are tired
We've been riding hard
Now we're trying to contain these desperate, clamoring people
I shout orders until I'm hoarse
We set the whole village on fire
It is a beast, burning as it breathes, and it destroys them
Sends the elders sobbing, the young men brought to their knees
I am doing my duty
These people deserve this
I am obeying my orders
And yet, late that night, lying alone on my hard bed
Out drops a single tear

Words: death, dark, east, wonder, sunlight, form


message 27: by ♥ Emily ♥ , Head Mod (new)

♥ Emily ♥   (emily_turtle) | 429 comments Mod
Even after all this death,
The light will drive out the dark in the morning
and we will stare at the sunlight rising in the east
with a beautiful wonder
and then we must gather our troops,
we must form a new army
and continue our plunder

Words: frozen, melting, weak, north, star, bright

Ardent || LoveArdent || Raya (loveardent) | 120 comments The star shines above
The north sends its love
But so far apart
Never to touch
Ever
Never
Forever

The star's bright heart
Weak light shining down
The north's frozen heart
Melting in unending heat and love

Slowly, since the dawn of time
the north has desired the star
But alas, they can never touch
No matter how the north reaches far

Rainbow, sun, fern, hard, desert

It rains hard,
The sun is washed from th sky.
Longing to shed its light once again.

Rainbow peeks through,
Pushing the clouds away.
It shines bright after hard times.

A desert thrives,
Soaking up all the water it can.
It feeds its little life.

They wait patiently
Ferns itching to grow again
The water gives them life.

Words: stragety, games, war, swordplay, soldiers, pawns

The chessboard in the garden features giant human pawns
And we play
We play
You fund one side and I the other
And we play on
There's strategy involved, of course
You don't let them know you're friends with me
That we're brothers of the same fraternity
I don't let them know
There's a set amount to die
That they are all soldier-pawns
On the wide chessboard of war
Real life
We look up from the wooden board and smile softly
Our hands are white and clean
You won't find any blood here, brother
This swordplay is safe enough
Child's toys spar on a gameboard
And we sweep away the world

in my frozen heart
I conjure a tale -
a legend
of dragons and trees of song
and a place where there is no wrong
but I know in my head,
that it is not real
and in this terrible, terrible real world,
I cry

There's ice in my veins and I'm freezing apart
I just might shatter all over your kitchen floor
And I'm sorry about the shaking
I get the blue look might be scary for you
My lips are so cold I can't even breathe anymore

Take your hands off of me!
I am not as broken as the world would like to believe
These shards are tearing me apart
And I'm not fighting it, I understand too well the ways of this world

Take your hands off me!
You don't know how good your warm arms feel
I can see the hurt in your eyes and I wish that my stupid ice
Didn't tear your soul as well, you deserve so much better

Take your hands off me!
I don't deserve to be thawed
I am okay to die alone, I'm limited collateral damage
Even in death, we can change
I'll be a good person
As soon as I fully freeze
As soon as my lungs choke thick with ice
I'll finally be free

Words: sorrow, sparrow, sword, gown, moon, trees

my sorrow is like
a sparrow,
a symbol of darkness and death
my sorrow is like a sword,
chopping off my head
my sorrow is like a gown,
clinging tight to my skin,
my sorrow is the moon
standing out no matter what
my sorrow is like the breeze,
strong enough to snap the branches of my tree
that is what's left of me

Next words: goldfish, spear, scales, wilted, eaten, gone

The goldfish is wilted.
The scales of the egg are gone.
We have eaten them.
We have eaten the tusk of the elephant.
We have eaten the children of the caribou.
We have eaten the river dolphins to extinction.
We have eaten their homes.
We have hunted with the spear. We have crowed in triumph.
But mankind, no
Mankind does not stop there.
We have hunted with the bow
With the bones, sticks and stones, blades, sharpened wood, arrow heads, nets and snares, metal knives, traps and guns
We have hunted.
We have eaten.
What comes next? What comes next? What comes next
When they are gone?

Next words: masculine, deep, roll, conch, volley, prime
