the milky way when you exhale your wish to the stars
and he slept through your winter eclipse
dreamless, choking on the dust of your comet trails
yet he mourns the threat of your bitter evanescence, solar flares wreathing in the ghost of your memory,
his qualm the moon tide that crashed against the cliffs of mother earth's enigma in agonizing brevity.

I never really had a choice
Hear it ring, from the cup
I can't believe that you hung up
XXXV. NewMy love (or so I thought you were before)XXXV. New1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
I'm sorry, I just can't say this has passed-
Were we meant to grow into something more?
Were you to be the one I'd kiss at last?
For I would give the world to hold your hand
The universe to hold you in my arms
Why Buddha frowns now, I don't understand
You laughed as you seduced me with your charms
Thought I you were the start of something great
Thought I you'd be the one to love me back
Thought I that you'd reverse my horrid fate
But, for having bad luck, I have a knack.
And now that it appears we might be through
I guess it's time to search for someone new.

I'm Too ScaredI’m sorry that we never talk,I'm Too Scared22 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
I’m sorry, I never message you,
I’m too scared,
and this is something I rue.
I want to talk to you, I really do,
but I’m to scared to message you,
I can’t one day and then the next,
I’m scared you’ll be mad at me, I just know it’s true.
I see your updates, some of them sad, others not,
But by the time I see them it’s too late,
I don’t get the chance to congratulate you or try to make you feel better,
and if I hit send I’m scared of what might await.
I think of you as my friend and I love you so much,
but I never message you, I’m to scared,
I wish I could but after all this time has past,
you must hate me, I’m just too socially impaired.
Ruthless WomanShe marches into a man's heartRuthless Woman1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
and burns it down to ash.
Sharp dagger her voice is
pierces thru soul
her tone has no remorse in it.
No pride left, no cries
alone in deranging silence
my spirit desperately tries
to step on the memory
of her laughter
even though there's no life after.
How to Escape the DarkYou take all the darknessHow to Escape the Dark17 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
And pack it away.
Hope it stays in the box
And doesn’t come out another day.
You come out of your hiding place
And try the out the world.
Rip away from the silence
And instead of always being furled.
You stay focused on the present
And not any of the past.
Concentrate on all the good
And know not everything is unsurpassed.
You see only the positives
And look at the water glass as half full.
Take everything in ugly in life
And make it more than beautiful.
You conceal all your sadness
And put on a big smile.
Put aside all your problems
And just forget for awhile.
You think “So what?”
And “What happens if I do this?”
Follow all these tips
And they claim you will make it out
Of the dark abyss.
UntitledI felt it when it happened.Untitled1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
I thought I was wrong, you would be there when I got home...
...I should have been there.
I knew you were leaving, I knew it was soon.
I thought we had another day…
...I should have been there.
I wish we had known when.
We could never stop it...
...but I would have been there.
as I write I feel tears roll down my cheek,
my hands start to shake.
Then I remember, this was your desk, your keyboard…
...why wasn’t I there?
I remember how you used to smile,
How you always used to make me laugh,
How you made me cry...
...Why wasn’t I there?
I remember you were always so lazy.
You would hardly ever say please.
But in the end it doesn’t matter…
...Why wasn’t I there?
You were my saviour so many times.
When no one else was you were always my friend.
These last twelve years will be with me forever.
I’ll miss you...
I wish I had known the hour…
PaddlingFeeling adrift on a sea that I don't understandPaddling1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Feeling the blood pushing through in the palms of my hands
As I paddle away from the shore
From the ones who could only say “More,”
I was lost in their company, here
Alone I'll be found.
Feeling along in the dark, my old tools left behind me
Reeling a line to the place where I left years ago.
As I paddle against the high wind,
Crash of waves, where did I begin?
Alone in the meantime, soon
My old homeland abound.
Feeling the warmth on my skin, the sun always rises
Healing the Earth and the sand that my feet touch upon
As I paddle up on the new bank
My heart lifted, when once it had sank
Could have given up searching for land
And I could have drowned.
Feeling the air in my lungs, and the winds that caress me
Stealing my worries away to the clouds and the sky.
As I paddled, I worried for safety
But the struggle and doubt it did take me
To the new and old place that I now see
When I look around.
Be My Valentine?It started out as a feelingBe My Valentine?2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
and grew into a crush.
Every time you talked to me
I felt a little rush.
It started out as a feeling
I want it to be more.
I'm addicted to your personality
I'd never find you a bore.
You make me nervous and giggly
whenever you are here.
Butterflies fly around in my stomach
I feel alive everywhere.
You don't see me this way
because you belong to another girl.
But what have I got to lose?
Might as well give it a whirl.
So here I am in front of you
I wish that you were mine.
I know your answer anyway,
but will you be my valentine?
