    Expression

    [​IMG]


    A cold cruel world! I was a victim!
    Forced to succumb to my parents venom,
    It surrounded every waking movement,
    Pushed for improvement. From then to the present
    Trapped! Try denying the human race.
    Wishing to reside in an imaginary place
    This garbled mess that was my life,
    Memories cut like the surgeon’s knife
    Rage begets rage, savage animals in a cage
    Looking for the salvation from lives lonely stage
    Suppressing my own fleeting feelings
    Mind set altered by life’s shady dealings
    Until that night in an old flamingo club
    Transformation from a weed to a flowering shrub
    Emulating the movements from all that I see
    Combined with booze and LSD
    Life slapped me hard in the face.
    I needed to change my destructive pace
    Like a swift back hand. That knocks sense into me
    I make my stand in the land, where my desirers are set free
    Body sways, emotional waves, impulses misbehave
    Now enslaved, by the magic gaze that portrays freedom set ablaze,
    No words required, lovers inspired, performance admired
    Light on my Feet, life more complete, so savory sweet.
    The emotions released that were trapped far beneath
    Hidden from sight,
    Until that night when I spread my wings and took flight
    Power in his hands, no other physical demands
    Swirling, stepping, swaying
    Repairing, growing, praying
    Expression through dance of love and romance
    My life was my cage. No longer stifled by rage
    I dance here with pride, no desire to hide
    The love for the dance! That I had stumbled onto by chance.
    10 years later
    Thankful for the day that I found my way
    To the back street alley deep in the valley
    The music would swirl through the air,
    Caressing my soul, the wind grazing my hair
    The sounds of people laughing inside,
    To scared to go in. wasted! Too HIGH!
    This is where I lived at night all alone.
    The clothes on my back, cardboard box is my home.
    Here due to circumstances beyond my control.
    Drugs blackened my soul, pulled me to the black hole.
    Not searching for answers, just riding the wave
    No need for romances. No desire to be saved
    Yet night after night I lay in that box,
    Wanting to dance, sip whiskey on the rocks
    By day I have only two things to do,
    Always the same never anything new!
    Get a hold of money for honey. To put in my veins!
    Pleading and begging. I would go to great pains.
    A good Friday night, I got plenty of cash, go grab my stash it’s time to get smashed
    Pull out my spoon, stick the needle in! Temperature goes up, nausea begins
    Something is happening, I can’t seem to breathe. I seem to be changing on this mid summer’s eve
    Glowing more brightly than ever before,
    Looking down at the body lying dead on the floor
    Walk away! Head to the door today was the day. It’s what you’ve waited for
    No hesitant breath! No pregnant pause!
    With elegance and grace. I walked through those doors
    Still dancing until all had gone home.10 years later still here. No need to roam.
    This is where I never sleep! I dance and dance like on repeat.
    I try not to think back to 10 years ago. When life was my hell, so glad I let go!

    crunched this out.. now time to pack up (again) and move to bay area x.x



    She smiled and laughed, called me a jerk and that was it
    Best friends, she’d have my back, if nobody else did
    Grew together as kids, adults teased us on a daily basis
    As they mistook our relationship for more than just friends

    Not that she isn’t beautiful, but I admire her in a brotherly way
    And like siblings often do, fights give way to play
    We hugged, parted ways, turned, smiled, and waved
    A short drive later, I turned on the lights at my place

    Ran the tap, the hot shower engulfed me in its ascending spirit
    Watched the steam entity float to the sky to return as a solid
    My trance is broken as my phone pleas for me to tend to it
    Probably a telemarketer, phone crying wolf, I question its merit

    Nonetheless I don a towel and dry my feet to hush the shouts
    Grab the disturbance and press the receiver to my mouth
    “Hello?” a familiar voice traveled with an unfamiliar stride
    Asked if she really was that ugly, I raise the brow of an eye

    “Tch, yeah, you’re hideous,” words I often say as a joke
    But something was not right… and her composure broke
    I can’t get a word in, her tears pelt this home’s walls like rain
    Yet I’m dry and untouched… confused by her pain

    “I’ll never be beautiful!” a mixture of frustration and defeat
    Then I realized she was serious, though she often said it playfully
    Her heavy breathing ends with a click… I’m speechless…
    All throughout our lives… she must’ve been vying for my acceptance…

    I call her ugly as a joke, cause it’s so obvious she’s beautiful…
    But never told her so, thought it was implied… guess it wasn’t though
    Striving all this time to have something she was already born with…
    The thoughtless words of a friend can siphon a life lived

    Topic: I didn't kill her, but i took her life

    Fairy - I liked how you did this. When i saw the picture, i figured it would be story about the movements and perhaps you creating a new set of dances moves to portray the emotions you were feeling. Still i enjoyed this. It was pretty emotional and the flow and rhymes were good. nicely done



    Ink - I liked the potential here but you lacked the detail and depth you really needed. However your delivery was good and i thought that with time and motivation, you could have won this. However, you were moving so i can't hate on that. Good Luck dude with the move!


    V/ Fairy for a complete story

    Fairy - this was pretty touching. i just found out yesterday a friend(who i hadnt seen in about 5 years) died from a heroin overdose. kinda hit home for me. i thought this ending was pretty uplifting actually, as i thought you were going to go a different route with it. this was a pretty cool take off the pic you used too. well written verse.

    Ink - i think had you had more time for this you would have been able to take this. there was great potential to the verse and it held my attention all the way through. another good adaptation of the topic and you had a dope closing line to this. good verse, homey. cant wait for you to come back. btw, you picked a good time to come back. looks like the rains died off up here. it was like 80 yesterday.

    vote- fairy
