Rückkehr ins Jetzt
Die meine benetzt
Rückerleben des Nichts
Das mir alles war,
Welten in Deinem Blick.
Into the DarknessMy mother always told me, “Don’t be afraid of the dark. You cannot see, but that doesn’t mean you cannot trust. There are no monsters that lurk in the shadows; it’s all… in your head.” She assured me that the bed I slept on was not a roof for a lair where demons lie; that every breath I took in slumber was not numbered… I was safe.Into the Darkness3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I remember finding him in the dark, the shadows towering over him like a city whose people were too narrow-minded to allow him to fit in, he was… unseen. I remember finding him in the dark, he was… walking in circles, blindly, his days all seemed the same.
He had been backed against the wall, able to do nothing but look back and watch the past he can’t get past, I remember opening his eyes. He saw me as his future.
We gave each other the light we needed to see during our darkest hours, but as time went by, I realized that what I thought was written in stone was written in sand, and it was all slippi
Invisible TearsSince the day I told you to be goneInvisible Tears6 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The rain stopped pouring
Gray clouds are no longer hovering over
Bright sunshines brighten my smile
Though my days are better
A little of your memories are still there
I painfully imagine your arms still wrapped around me
As if you're still here
You were someone I cared for
What happened to him?
I've always considered you as one of my friends
How could you not feel that?
As much as I want to cry
I can't anymore
But I can sense the same pain in my heart
I can taste the same salty tears running down my face
And I can hear the same muffled sobs
Tic-Tac-Toe (XIOU)Life is a game of Tic-Tac-ToeTic-Tac-Toe (XIOU)4 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
You compete with your X's and O's
and you regret your exes and Oh...
If you both knew the rules,
you both just can't lose
But you both... just can't.. win
It's a draw from the start
as you draw the art
of a 3 by 3 cell
filled with X's and O's and I
I drew a line across my exes
and Oh my line just happened to cross you
I drew X's across you eyes
and I drew the chalk line around
your open body
a 1 by 1 cell,
a 1 by 1 hell
and the sidewalk

Obiecaj (Promise me)OBIECAJObiecaj (Promise me)3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Obiecaj mi, że jutra nie będzie
Obiecaj mi, że zatrzymasz czas.
Przysięgnij, że odwleczesz w godzinach
To, co zasiewa w mym sercu żal.
I gdybym mógł potrzymać Twą rękę,
chociażby zimną - nie wierzyłbym.
Imaginacja - w sercu mym kryształ,
złotem jest ciepło, alchemią - my.
I choćbym trupem Ciebie zobaczył,
nigdy nie wierzyłbym, że to Ty.
I choćbyś odszedł wraz z moim płaczem,
Nie oddałbym... Nie oddałbym.
Nigdy nie stanę nad Twoim grobem.
Nigdy ze zniczem nie zobaczysz mnie.
Zamykam oczy. Swoje - nie Twoje.
Bym jako zmarły mógł śnić Twoje sny.
Ty pośród żywych, a ja jako zmarły.
To jest jedyne co widzę ja.
Jeśli odejdziesz, jutra nie będzie,
bo z sennym światłem zniknę i ja.
Catch MeThoughts roll in the chaos,Catch Me3 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Lost somewhere between the morning.
Hope and respite,
Needing room to breathe.
Days go by now ever faster,
Drag you through the light and shadows.
For a soul to catch me.
Holding onto Faith so tightly,
For a place to fall.
Love and fear fight for their standing.
Raging deep inside my soul.

i will have snuck across the room
and hid myself in the darkest shadows i can find
and there i will sit and i will pick
and i will tear
and i will rip apart
every good thought i've had that night
because how dare i let myself have fun
how dare i forget that i'm afraid of everyone
how dare i feel- for even a second- that i am not the joke
the elephant in the room
anything at all
because i can boil my entire existence down to
i have spent years teaching myself
how to become nothing, part of the background, blend in with the wall,
hold my breath so it doesn't give away my existence
i have conditioned myself to believe
that i should take up the smallest amount of space possible
and i don't even deserve that much
how dare i breath oxygen someone else needs
how dare i take up a seat on the bus
and who do i think i am talking to,
no one wants to hear me anyway
push myself back
Fire in Our Soullook at me the way you didFire in Our Soul4 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
the night our souls entwined
the memory of a moment
when I thought you could be mine
part of me still dines on that delusion
part of me will go and wish you well
but not without asking the powers that be
to give me just one chance in hell
look at me the way you did
engulf my soul in flame
we can raise our walls up once again
but it will never be the same
now that we know what lies behind them
there is no denying the facts
stepping over lines drawn in sand
there will be no turning back
do you really think this is a train you can derail
do you have that much control
can you walk away like it never happened
and ignore the fire in your soul
trying to protect me from your own brand of destruction
by shutting me out and wishing me well
I am not so easily destroyed
all I need
all I need
is just one chance in hell
Poetry Session-I'm sorryPoetry Session-I'm sorry1 week ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
We started off happy, we never got into arguments.
It always "I love you" and a whole lot of compliments.
But we're deeper in love, and with that comes change.
I don't mind doing that, besides from doing so you can gain.
But in doing so the cupcake phase ends, and a new chapter begins.
We faces some struggles, not always easy to juggle.
We made a family, and so much more.
Scars I'm promise you are from a bore.
But as time when I made critiques, for a friend who drew furries.
Unintentionally if filled you with fury, bitter inside and and lots of envy.
But I wasn't aware what they did to you, because you usually mute.
Until later on last night you spoke you cue, speaked your feelings and execute.
I can see why you hate porn, because it makes you feel torn.
You feel saddend and blue, when I stare at another women besides you.
You view my faves and critiques, you

My WorldI can't sleep...you're not beside me.My World2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I can't eat...it's not with you.
When you leave I count the minutes until you return.
This house is so quiet until you return.
The rush I feel in your arms, words cannot describe it.
You are my protector, sheltering me from that world.
I always want you beside me, I never want to let go.
Please never leave me...my heart would shatter.
I couldn't go on if I was abandoned.
I love you more than anything.
You are my other half, my soulmate.
The Kind OfYou're talking to the air now.The Kind Of2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
It's the kind of silence after a funeral, after something has been taken that you can never get back. It's the kind of sorrow that feels like wet ashes, the kind that sticks under your nails and leaves behind heavy footprints when you run. It's the kind of pain you can get art out of, the only kind that creates but also destroys so well. It's the kind of bitterness you hate yourself for, the kind that grinds itself into your bones and sours everything you taste.
It's the kind of thing you drain yourself worrying about, that makes everything black out on the inside. It's the kind of repetition that makes you wonder if history is not so much a timeline but a cycle that's got you in a chokehold. It's the kind of abandonment that leaves you feeling at home in condemned houses; something about them resonates within you, feels like family. It's the kind of wound you refuse to let heal over; as long as it hurts at least you're grounded in some kind of existentia

is getting out of bed
as long as it distracts me
staring at myself in the mirror doesn’t
as a distraction
hyperfocus on every blemish
you’re twenty why do you still have acne
close your eyes
and look away
there’s no such thing as good enough
is getting out of bed
going to class
putting on a face
into believing i’m a well-adjusted member of
until the mask is peeled off
curling up in bed crying
panic attacks at three in the morning
because you’re not enough
you’re never enough
your decisions are wrong
you are never going to achieve your dreams
are you even dreaming at all
do you actually want to do that
or are you just telling yourself you do so that you can feel normal and have a purpose
like there’s something you’re working towards?
Story of a boyOnce upon a timeStory of a boy4 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
a boy was brought to this life
and he grew up but didn't realize
how hard things are
While the boy grew up
he'd get beat up and was made fun of
but those things he ignored,
and he tried to blend with those
who hurt him
And he called them friends
and most of them friends he considers
yet, now he sees
At least here in HyruleTake my hand and we'll run through castle townAt least here in Hyrule6 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
We'll ride Epona through the grass and climb over Death Mountain and down
Through Faron woods you'll follow my flute's sound
The fairies will dance and the fireflies will play
As you listen and smile and I twirl and sway
My soft, dark hair falling in my eyes as the wind whispers through the trees
Bracelets ring and your voice laughing with a slight hum from the bees
Smiling I give you a kiss on the cheek and we continue on our way
Stepping on stones across the pond and past the birds
Nature is our music so we need no words
As it gets darker we have no need to fear
Because you are with me here
Moonlight seeps through the forest on soft grass we decide to lay
Actions are louder than voices so there is nothing I need to say
Comfort and adventure are all i can see above me
At least here in Hyrule in the sacred grove we can be free...
A Conversation With A Tree And An AxDid you know that when an aspen tree gets cut downA Conversation With A Tree And An Ax2 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
its roots will continue to grow, sprouting new life for every death?
They are some of the oldest trees in this worn and weary world,
growing relentlessly despite wars and fires and decay.
I like to think in metaphors, so when I heard of the aspen,
I became the name. The aspen tree was strong. Relentless.
I did not know that it meant giving the world permission to kill me,
to beat me, to cut me down, to spit in my face. "You will grow back."
I will grow back. I will always grow back. The first was a fire,
it started early with an ember, until the years burned down my life. "You will grow back."
So I grew back. I will always grow back. The second was a storm,
it never meant to kill me, but it's windy screams rubbed salt in my burns. "You will grow back."
So I grew back. The third was a mad man with an ax,
deliberate; slow; painful; purposefu
A year laterThey tell you it gets better.A year later4 days ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
They tell you it'll pass
They tell you it hurts
They tell you you'll get used to saying "was" instead of "is"
What they don't tell you is that it aches for days
What they don't tell you is that every "I'm sorry for your loss" feels like a kick in the face
What they don't tell you is that it doesn't go away, you just get used to it.
A year later, it still feels like a punch to the gut to be accidentally called your name
A year later, it still hurts to breathe
A year later, and the "great" in front of your name hasn't made it hurt any less to lose you.
What they don't tell you, is that they're lying.

PianoYou have forgotten me.Piano1 week ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I know this from the
Flaking of my fall-board
The loosening of my tendons.
I cannot recall the beating of my own heart.
But I remember you.
I can feel your bones on my bones,
Heavier than your feet on my toes.
Heavier than the draft you let in the open door.
Lady the wood panels are warped and
Every morning the dew waits on the sill
For the only things that come around anymore
But Lady, you are not the sunshine
And you are not the moonlight.
I have no more sonatas for you.
So, pull the door closed
So I can hear my own heart beat.
