PushYour methods are punishment
the way your words fooled
a snug chest cavity into
If I could mislead you, I would not
with a sharp-tongued allegory
but with the intimate force
of two small hands
Searing overburdened shoulders
fingernails against blades
reading ruined skin
one last time
Delicately severing our
CowardiceI found I still enjoy the swing set…
Guess I’ve never really been grounded
while that song of ours played on the radio.
I really felt it though.
It was as if you where there again.
Like you never left in the first place,
that contagious smile still splitting your face
Reality set with the falling sun…
My stomach growing sour as I swayed
the pattern reminding me of the one I broke.
The sickly sweet laugh that made me choke.
How am I supposed to sleep sound now?
Knowing that as this day gives to night,
I have simply turned my back toward right
In VeinThere is but one
That I let in
Free to crawl
Under my skin
You twist, you turn
Through every vein
Blood and shame
It's what you do
My gift to you
I am me
With you within
In need of you
Under my skin
How hard it is
Being so strange
myself, in vein
You love me,
Love with pride
Bury my wounds
Not your eyes
Pain InflamedI found a sheet of paper
and filled it with my pain
words then turned to ashes
as the letter danced in flame
The pen dispersed my anguish
shading once blank pages black
my cramped, determined fingers
fought to end hidden attacks
A match struck at the corner
sent my sorrows glowing bright
the dark swirls of redemption
spiraled to refreshing heights
Remains were sent to Heaven
lifted upon a gentle breeze
my fingers slightly blackened
my troubled heart set free
Tortured SoulI have found myself somewhat careless
the way my mind softly whispers your name
how I now have to struggle to hold you in
my clenched teeth, your prison sentence
Failing, my mind conjures up false delusions
your presence, your brow furrowed in thought
your eyes testing my wit, jaw taught with want
for these precious moments of mine, you exist
Standing just steps from me, still unreachable
my own personal torture, yet I revel in it willingly
the distance between us, my unyielding bonds
feet glued to where they now tremble, my lashing
Such a silly mess, to fear one's own creation
my heart screaming your name in frantic beats
watery eyes fasten shut, until alone once more
though the spirit that is you still flows within me
ResignationDowning milk like gin
sleep fails me again
due to a heavy heart,
an alliance torn apart
This hallow night aides
as the darkness invades
your half of our flame
now doused by my shame
I toyed with your hand
like I did with our plans
their undoing, my fault
wounds laced with salt
I loved you; still do
but there is more to you
than this tragic little town
and me holding you down
SeveredMy pain is not raw, just a constant dull ache
Making it that much harder for my fragile frame to take
You were my structure; my boundaries drawn fine
leaving edges to crumble from within their confines
Our last moment together our arms remained linked
soaring high in our sky-swings, laughing in sync
Tended roots intertwined, our hearts stronger as one
now with my half in hand, I watch as life comes undone
A wretched sinking spiral into reality's dark depths
you were never grounded, though off the ground I was swept
My best man, my Bible, I will follow till no end
flipping through the pages until I find you again
Dirty DancingThe lyrics sting
crawling into me
in ways unforeseen
dripping with sin
the chorus sinks in
curves and elbows
the click of stilettos
Swallowed by notes
a tune in the throat
carries us away
to sides we sway
Blood red cheeks
our heat released
in perfumed swirls
and tight brown curls
Chest to chest
battling the unrest
devoted once more
toward an encore
Tale of FairyWhat would you say
if I told you I couldn't stand you?
If I told you that when your arms are filled with me
is when I am the emptiest.
When our bed is the last place I want to be
but I have not the strength to leave it.
My mind wanders to a far off place
during unfulfilling conversation with you.
A place that would put all romances and tales of fairy
to bitter shame.
A place that this magicless world would mock
in misunderstanding and ignorance.
What if I told you that I dream of a love
so fulfilling that it could never be quenched?
Not by you, or any of mankind for that matter,
due to the absence of creativity in this land.
Our relationship is fractional,
a drop in the ocean,
when compared to my wishes.
Dreams that make this realm black and white
with the lack of luster it provides.
This world, real life, the human species
is utterly and completely uninteresting.
I am only happy when I am not in it,
whether submerged in false hopes or slumber.
So, for now, I love you
due to the fact
BetrayalI have the memory
I have forgotten
My kisses are fresh
And they're so rotten
My eyes shoot daggers
But stare so sweetly
Our life is a mess
That is arranged so neatly
It hurts me so bad
And yet I feel nothing
You were always so suspicious
You were easily so trusting
You've killed me completely
And filled me with life
I deserve to be an ex
But also your wife
I have given up
I continue to try
You should've told the truth
But you should've lied.
Bathed in scripted bile
A vale of silence falling
Bureaucraticly hiding all
Dysfunctional desires rampant
A festering rotted core
Inequalities deeply binding
Insidious malcontents survive
A decadent soulless beacon
Fulfilling wanton desires
Hypocritically content miscreants
Unchecked carnivorous fools
Blackened evillest wanting
Lost in greed and lust and deed
Radical animosity revealing
Cantankerous inept pontiffs
Cadaverous satanic tools
Solemn service sacrificed
Screaming to deafened ears
What once was the answer
Has turned into misery and fear
Writhing twisted malformation
Unburdened of belief
Empty faithless vessel
Devoid of love and peace
My RemedyMy wings are broken, bleeding.
I have entered an empty space.
My soul, hurting, lonely, needing,
is seeking its own rightful place.
Is my sad life just a tragedy?
Is there one who could heal me?
Can you be my gentle remedy?
Kiss me, hold me; can you feel me?
Are You Happy Now?Are you happy now?
That she’s dead on the ground
Never again will she be able to
Ever make another sound
Are you happy now?
That the words that you say
Have made another girl feel helpless
And her life has crumbled away
Are you happy now?
That you’ve made another feel pain
Just because you’ve been dealt wrong
Doesn’t mean another should have to endure the rain
Are you happy now?
That your damage has been done
Another victim has fallen down
Do you feel like you have won?
Are you happy now?
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGHWhen Rosa died she was just thirty one;
She was my best friend in the world.
Cancer disabled her, and her husband left her,
She had two little girls and a mortgage to pay.
I offered to help her, but she was too proud,
And her sickness was shortening her beautiful life.
Her husband refused to take the children,
Like a memory, he faded away;
More than her own impending death,
She worried about her two babies.
With no other family to take them,
They were heading for Foster Care.
I begged Rosa to let me care for them,
I looked her in the eyes and promised her;
Her children would never want for nothing,
I would bring them up like she would want.
I swore to her that I would love them and nurture them.
The adoption took place three days before her death,
And I was there with her when she died.
Waiting back at home were my two girls,
My precious diamonds in the rough…
Under the KnifeWhitewash my arms and legs
Until it's okay to be me
until I'm like all the rest
Until I am free
Paint my face,
Bleach my skin,
Change my race.
Why doth ye abandoneth me, O my love?
Have thy heart forgotten thine untamed dove?
Am I damned? Am I ugly?
What is it that makes thee, forsake me?
I live the way thee desireth.
I abide silence and pride forsaketh!
Why ye then blind towards my pain?
Why ye maketh my plea go vain?
Why thou maketh my life so dismal?
The wrath of thy apathy maketh my living abysmal!
Without thee life equals death!
Earnestly for thy mercy I prayeth!
I seeketh peace in thy happiness,
in thy grief I abideth thine loneliness.
Then why dost I fail to please thee?
Why ye not fill my heart with thine abounding mercy?
Reveal unto me my flaw my dear,
an unfathomable grave seems to draw me near!
All frail… all broken… my ordeal finds no end…
Without thy grace my heart can never mend!
To thy sweetest word I yearn.
In the moonlit night forlorn I burn.
Why unto me ye so stern?
Why is thine love so stubborn?
I fail to perceive thy rejection!
Thine unconcern brings unto me a venomous
Our Last ChanceIf the world turned its back on us
and God chose to resign
I would find a way to show you
that you always have been mine
As mountains fall into the Earth
and lives are ground to dust
I will bury words within your skin
while deflecting your disgust
Fires render oceans dry,
bodies in their wake,
You and I alone remain
with one frail chance to take
Toppled buildings, shattered glass,
the last rain we'll ever see,
but your fear of us cuts deeper
than all the sky hurls down at me
So when the world comes to halt
and pitches one last fit
whether in this life or not,
we will make it.
Our DutyWe swallowed the path home
Because we were hungry,
Though starving is an ongoing
Story, an empty bag
Dancing in the streets,
Full of an unfastened voice
Walking through the house,
Wind unchained, heart admonished.
Heaven fills its eyes, crawls away,
That sleeping boat content to follow
The vacant waves, intervals
Of dying that we dare not interrupt,
And we watch the kind ear shrinking
From our charcoal docks; heaven
With a full stomach crawls away.
This is what we were put here for.
Keep in Touch!
