Le TrainLe Train4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Deux peaux enlacées qui s'étirent
Dans un cur à cur alangui,
Trésors dérobés d'une nuit
Sous la parenthèse d'un soupir,
Léger comme une soie sauvage
Dévoilant l'ambre d'un sillage.
Et dans l'aube qui se sépare,
Un train s'avance vers une gare...

Can you hear it?
That faint sound,
Of shattering glass.
It's breaking apart,
It might just be my heart.
Get the tape,
Grab the glue.
We can fix this,
Maybe, just maybe.
Take a deep breathe,
Get it under control.
It's not the end,
Get it together.
The dawn is coming,
A new day is here.
Hold your breathe,
And take a flying leap.
The StarsThe world keeps spinningThe Stars7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
and people keep on moving.
The deceitful keep on winning
and the innocent are losing.
But the stars sing for us...
baby the stars sing for us...
Day and night alternate
while the seasons change endlessly.
Fragile babies meet their fate
and even the strongest can't see.
But the stars cry for us...
baby the stars cry for us...
The heat burns to cold
and the fire will extinguish tears.
Of all the stories we're told,
we still hold on to silly fears.
But the stars smile on us...
baby the stars smile on us...
All the empty dreams
and the late phone calls.
The times we choke back tears
and when the weak still seem to fall.
We all need someone
to wrap up our skinned knees
and kiss our bruises more than once.
Someone to teach us how to breathe.
And since you're far away
the stars will hold us...
baby the stars will hold us...
SearchingAlone in the darknessSearching4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
In front of a mirror
With nothing but silence
Searching for love
Sometimes it is like a candle
You light it,
But it can be blown out
Sometimes it is like a death
When it eventually passes away
Sitting there alone
Searching for love

I toppled us down.
You were right to be wary
I swear I never meant for any
It's so hard to pick up
Attempt to write.
I play familiar songs
To get lost.
Drown in memories
Cry my heart out.
Your still there
Right where it hurts me most.
....When I think about all the things I did
I hate myself
....When I think about the things we've said
I hate myself
....As I lie here on my bed
I hate myself
....After everything we did
I hate myself
You always expected the worse
I guess that's what you got.
You don't care that you were wrong
With what you thought.
I'm dying from betrayal
And you don't know.
You knew I loved you
But what is love?
Just a desire to fuck
I was true
But you could never see.
Why oh why,
Did I get involved,
With someone jaded as me?
We were doomed to fall.
....She's waiting for you at home
I hate myself
....I'm in hell imagining her with you
I hate myself
....You led me on so easily
I hate myself
....She said and you agree I'm bad new

Id fall in love again if youd look my way.
Id melt one more time if youd touch my hand.
Id push you against the wall and fulfill your plea
But you were looking at him.
And so I held my heart close and prayed you'd never notice
how I stared at you that day
and hoped you'd see me

Who shall ensue their venom
When shall my lusty rainfall cease?
All is forgotten
As Sick lingers over my door
Manifesting my being
To help me move on
To far-off sensibility
Im hit hard and I crumble
Tidbits of my soul drop with a ting
As they fall to the forsaken floor
As they ensue the damned.
In cryptic sarcasm
You try and pull me back
A taunting of many cruelties
I seep through, slowly receding
Until nothing lingers
And you glare impatiently
When it takes a few moments
For me to fade

Now everyday is winter.
I remember those hot nights,
when everything felt so right.
Now your side of the bed is cold.
At least it matches my heart.

Who I amI am a poetWho I am6 years ago in Other More Like This
Caught and torn between the love that I lost and a hope for a better future
I am the high E, I cant ever seem to reach
My voice, a constant comfort and betrayer
My soul fears its power
I am a distraught checkerboard
The logic was lost when the curiosity begun
Taunting those who listen and laugh
Amused by some who think me aloof
I am what I am
Spiderwebbed with temptations
Silly spells surround me
Drenching my very wrongs
In honeybuttered misinterpretation
I dream at a speed of hummings birds wings
And my eyes flicker deadly fantasies
No reception will ever pick up
My finger tips are always cold
I hide behind sweet seasonings
Praying that my brittle internal
Will only overcome, when I choose to surrender

Blood baths come to mind,

to be pure, I did try,
I will be with the one I loved,
I will not be numb.

sometimes it slips into bed with my shadow
