She searched ,
with bandaged hands
and burned arms
for the warmth of a soul
in the caked faces
of false men.
She searched ,
with filthy hands
and blind eyes
for joys of life
in the graves
of those who knew 
only its tragedies.
She searched ,
with livid hands
and false smiles
for the beauty of reality
in the shadows
smeared upon her walls
and in the moonlight
glaring down upon her. 
She searched
with manicured hands
and lyrical words
for gods
in the approval
and recognition of men.
She searched 
until she finally found
the very things 
for which she searched
searched in her 
and found
but two hands 
with blind eyes
burned arms
false smiles
and lyrical words.
The picture on the pedestal
"Its so beautiful"
they always say
the picture of us
as we fell
so very far astray,
sometimes I wonder
what they see
if we look so far away
somewhere where "Its so beautiful"
could always be used
to fill the empty space,
I don't remember it
and nothing else
no other breath of that place
instead only the memory
of a long day
filled with quiet tears,
both of us
looking only at the ground
in abstract fears
of what we might find
in our eyes
in the setting behind
so instead
we look away
looking to find
something in the camera
rather than each other
and in some cowardly lull
we sat together
to get the picture
that's always been so beautiful.

the chalk scratches

cover their mouths  
but I never heard
I continuetotalk and
I'm sent away
sent running
to the Office.

but I never see,

sent walking
to the office.

This is in NO WAY my style. No I instead copied one of my least favorite poet's style out of respect for them and the impact and hidden meaning such a stylized piece can have. Can you guess who i was copying?
He drowns
in visceral shades of gray,
in illustriously craved walls
with four defined ridges
allowing him only
a window to his soul...
a window without bars,
and yet it offers no escape
for it only allows
the gray to flood through.
He cannot swim,
the color allows him no such pleasantry
and instead he must sit,
in what little color 
he can find
as they slowly choke him
and as he dies
he screams repentant cries
and begs for salvation
with tears in his eyes
for redemption...
but his tears
only dye his skin as gray
as the filth which drowns him.
Shades Of Gray
Most of this alludes to book. Can you guess which one? Didn't know how to properly end it. It was far shorter, ending at the line "the gray floods through" but made it a little longer. Hope everyone enjoys :)

Edit: Ha perhaps i should've thought this title out more. Guys I'm not alluding to fifty shade of grey I'm alluding to a famous book with Gray in the title whom this poem personifies (Hint the author was a Wilde guy).
Delusion becomes me
it echoes with the listless duty
of confining me
within the horrid tyranny
of my own fiction.
There will be no coup
no revolution nor rebellion
no cries for reality
nor exuberance of freedom
only the echoes of duty.
The monotonous drown of forgeries,
atrocities, and apologies,
the dying screams 
of impoverished souls
of fancy and fantasy,
the rapacious shouts 
of fallacious joy over 
the births of new yet 
lovely children of fate and belief,
more loudly the gunfire
these shouts are meant to cloud
horribly loud in themselves
though they quiet some of the screams,
and finally the repetition 
of my own whispers
,my own words,
repeating the implication
and imagery of every sound
as is my duty.
My duty to know 
every tragedy and every forgery
for what they are
and still believe,
believe them to be something more.
Delusion becomes me.
Delusion becomes me
Delusion becomes me though I am continually affront with how little I believe, I come to always search for it .
I got no time for poetryyyyyyyyyy. School is killlllllllllling meeee. My professor has given me nearly a project a week for the past three week and my lit teacher has given me insane amounts of work. sorry guys
