My Dearest BetrayalMy Dearest Betrayal,
Along your spine I zip open your flesh, peeling it back from the muscle and bone. Breathing heavily upon your utter nakedness, I watch the uncontrollable quivering as my poisoning breath scalds as dry ice.
A screaming monster claws its way up your throat, tattered shreds of your gullet are left in its wake. Flailing in the putrid fumes of agony, your yellow eyes search. But there is nobody there for you anymore. A sea of writhing bodies bump and flop against your own, unaware. Encapsulating screams have carved themselves into your irises as the selfish world turns topsy-turvy like a drunkard consumed in his own self pity.
The hair stands on the back of your sweating neck. As the claustrophobic drowning dissipates, a frost crawls to the ends of the earth congealing the flow of your veins. Solitude is now the scumm

Therein lies this emptiness
That simply wades through veins, festering
And spreading to every inch of the body
Where no one can see but choose to
And I long for the words to find
A way to simply scrape the surface
But they disintegrate before exposure
To a mind so consumed and devastatingly
Vacant where we were meant to spark
And create this growing life
To bring to a world where most want to sweep
Embarrassments and difficulties under
No meter or rhyme can clean it up
When something is indescribable
As the flickering elephant in the room
But even still my smile is sewn, my lips
All I know is the patience for inevitability
Because the world is temporary and
To drop anchor here is suicide for those
Who cannot swim amidst valueless waves of
But as the minute hand skitters the time steps
And I feel it slip into an abyss of abstractions
The world stands still for a split millennia of
Falling tears and stilled breath as I feel you for a

I want to stab your heart
Until my arm gets numb
Admire you like a TV channel
Erase you to bring you back
To watch your tears coming back in colors again
Each feeling an actor of my subconscious
As they play their roles in each dream
Devoured night after night
My digested limbs come back to you

I'll never be happy

Then we take dinner

We've been too patient

I will make a home
a place you'll never know
No streets no atmosphere

You turned away from that flashing horizon
to land on warmer shores
still looking back to your favorite star
we talked about pain
the gash you built carefully
thread by thread you steamed in
then blew it out like the new wolf on the block
speak of love
the radio is a dry sponge
a lucid 80's slur
a quiet drive
We speak of all these things
as our cars cut each other off
and wreck into the ditch

My muse is mine
I will not share her
I keep her prisoner
Here against her will
Strapped to the bed
She is a slave for my inspiration
For human desires
She cannot leave
To be used by someone else
Someone not worthy
To strike ideas
In their meager minds
She begs and cries
But that is exactly what I need
To get my designs
And when I am done
She will die
For no one else can use
PeaceAll the things i have done tonightPeace4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Been a while since i felt like this
Having a conversation that shouldn't be
Being in a place where i feel calm
Things are coming at me at a million miles an hour
And al i have done is sit there
Watching them just pass me by
I always said i didn't care about it
I now know that i do care
A little more than i probably should
It has caused me to cry and be angry
Emotions that i have always faked
I never knew how to react to anything
I always just decided on a course of action
Bringing my analysis of the point to bear
My emotions meant nothing for me
But then it struck me suddenly
I never saw it coming despite everything
My plans were sent awry and i hated myself
Nothing can be planned in this world
But now i think i found what i wanted in the first place
A sweet serenity that i always sought
Bringing calm to my actions and making me feel
Emotions are for the weak is what i thought
But now i know emotions are necessary
In order to bring true peace to onese

A shooting star, glistening
The clouds struggle to hold back this light.
The brilliant red of the morning
Surrounds these skirts,
Shadows melt into the earth.
Swaying with the Lotus
I watch you rise
Again and again.
You fall from the skies,
And the darkness returns.
Until the next time.
Where are you now

riddling them in scripts
and leaving them around like clues
I want to tell you about
how you take the room when you smile
and the world comes into focus
it gets so hard to speak
when every phrase is censored
but still were flowing like water
Why am I hiding my words,
when the truth of them is so simple;
I just want to watch you shine.

My shoes are empty, waiting by the front door,
Old tattered blue shoes, unused,
Tired souls gathering dust on the floor.
I wear a size that from the outside seems all right,
But no one else seems to fit comfortably.
So no gritty mile has been walked,
No one has tied these lonely laces over their feet.
No one has put themselves in these empty shoes,

Their intermediate phases enabled,
saunter through the woodwork
and hide in your car keys.
Silence is water for the past.
I try to drink it up fast
to spare you from its echo's,
cause the future's where our thoughts still grow
If I could make a loom with the city, I would
I'd draw it in tight with bang crazy knots
seemed up with silence
to keep them at the mercy of your wonder
The brush in your eye,
its swelling with ointments
Where everything is the color
of neverland on easter morning
We string lilacs and lilies together
with all the pristine things left over from our lust
and hang them from the ceiling
drawing our eyes toward god.

I won't be the person you think I am anymore.
I won't smile and say what you want to hear.
I won't tell you I'm alright when it's a lie.
I won't let your guilt infect my soul.
I won't lose myself because I'm losing you.
I won't give up on people if you give up on me.
I won't hate you because you love her.
But I will walk away.
I'll teach myself to live again.
I'll love what my heart holds dear.
I'll forgive it all and forget you.
I'll be what I've always been.
But I'll only be a stranger to you.

I want my heart to tremble in my chest. I want my eyes to dart everywhere because looking you in the eye is a treasure I don't want to wear out. I want to feel like I'm glowing from the inside out when I'm around you and I want to feel completely wild within myself.
I want you to understand all the signs, all the things in my eyes that I can't bring myself to say. I want you to know the dark secrets of my past and love me no differently. I want us to feel like we are puzzle pieces, like we are the part of each other that we've always been without.
I want us to grow together, until there is no line between you and me. I want to feed your fire and you mine as we strengthen together in each other. You'll sew up the cracks and fit right in and together we'll know who we are.
I want to make all your dreams come true and somehow tell you that you've done the same for me. I want to find you in the morning, your arms my cocoon and know you the most beautiful person I've ever seen

Thine regal, unwav'ring gaze pierced me through
Neither heart nor soul could satisfy
the craving held steadfast by thy amorous beauty
I shall have more o' thy cherry-stained lips
Whilst under spell of highest decree
Nothing is love but a dagger to mine heart
Merely thy words do I have need,
yet thrice the fool
unable to overcome Love's unyielding grasp,
I am thrice the fool
Through frosty gaze and heavy word,
seduced by mine abuser, the fool am I
A bat o' thy lashes do I follow thine will
Thine whim, thy fancy
a slave to thee am I

and I wondered why someone would change their mind about that.
You either need asparagus or you don't.
You can't get the wrong type of asparagus by accident.
If it were I in your line,
I would send it back.
But only to watch you put the asparagus away
while simultaneously dreaming about putting my arms around you
in the supermarket.
