Don’t mind all these broken bones,
They’re just left over from
the last time that you left.
Oh no, don’t move my heart,
leave it right there on the sofa.
Why the sofa? Well it’s not like
I have anywhere else to put it.
Um, just ignore my legs.
They’re old and crippled I know,
but they were all that I had.
My eyes-oh you can keep them.
I’m not sure they work though,
seems they’re always blind to something.
My muscles, those dumb things.
they never really did work out,
Haha, “Work out”, you get it?
you know, like you and me?
Oh, never mind.
About my lips, you can toss those.
They just won’t stay closed.
It’s no wonder I never shut up.
Have you ever wondered why I never shut up?
And where are my lungs? Did you take those?
That’s okay; I’m used to you taking my breath away.
Hmm, now what about the rest of my love...
What? You want THAT? Really?
I did not see that coming...

When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

* Teary Eyed Smile * Exactly!! That's why I regret it too,,, but meeting you here seems that one of those awesome people still remains, and I'm so thankful for that :D

WOW....This was so much different from what I had originally expected...from the title that is, turned out to be so much more! The way you put it out, all those body parts explained, all that anger shown through humour and OH the irony! LOved it :D

I don't think I've ever read a poem that has had both humor and sadness. This piece is amazing. You have a certain dark humor about you, which I really like, and it's clearly portrayed in your work. Please keep writing! (:

I really like how you introduced and deconstructed your character at the same time.its like you got to know them as they were falling apart. It shows the ugly truth behind a break-up.

No, Raven's leaving the Internet to get closer to God. Seriously, that's what he said. :( His stuff is still up-you can see his farewell letter and he comes every so often, once a month maybe. :)
