Gave me many, many, many maybes but nothing certain.
Confused to the point of absurdity,
DADA is my forte.
Ride your hobby horse in the living room
Of your parent's home,
I am immoral but mortal so don't worry...just kill me.
I will love you more if you promise to break my bones
Because this abuse is just so normal.
Perfumed kisses make me Ill,
Nothing is real except for this growing desire
In me to seek and kill...
What a miracleWhile i was absorbing the mystical feelWhat a miracle6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
of a rainy day,
i watched as each rain drop hit the ground
and the ants and other bugs
hurry on home where it is nice and dry.
I swear i could feel god residing in my bones,
feeling in unison with the world
as if i was high.
What a miracle!
to witness such a spectacle as this,
and experience an elated soul
begin to flutter its wings for the first time
Slowly losing all of my fears
becoming lighter than air, and warm as a lover's kiss
glad to be finally free from the destructive embrace of despair.
Morning found me dreamingMorning came and found meMorning found me dreaming6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
in bed still dreaming,
I didn't want to wake up
to the same life i had left behind when
my eyes closed.
I feel safe under the sheets
embracing a pillow to try and palliate
the agony that's been driving me to hell lately,
but the harder i try the deeper i fall
slowly becoming a ghost.
And as time moves forward
i seem to be staying behind,
Trying to forget the things i have stored up in my mind
before they devour me whole.
One With YouFull moon, someday soonOne With You6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My soul will caress the surface
Of your swollen belly
With his finger tips
Absorbing the warmth from your
Premature sun killing him in the womb,
Before you give birth to morning.
Your pale, naked body will become unglued and fall
To the cold calm Sea below where I will rescue you
Take you home and become one with you.
Letting Go"Letting go"Letting Go6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Here I am again
The pessimistic one,
Holding the barrel of a clueless gun
Against my head.
Trying to understand why it is
I havent pulled the trigger yet,
Am I not done?
I am the man that built
An empire out of sand
And sweat, fought for justice
And equality in a world I couldnt
And even though there are still many
Self-set goals I havent met
Im ready to give up now.
I swear I can hear the bullet
Whispering do it into my ear
Obliterating my one and only fear
Making it so much easier to let go.

and left me clueless...
sitting here feeling useless
because of you.
Floating in space,
i'm searching for a single prayer
one that i can grab a hold of and never let go.
one that can stop me
from falling into the void of my own being and
the cold embrace of destruction.
But there is nothing there...
nothing but air and spacedust
in the land of the lost.
Love is a gun not a flowerThe key that helps start the engineLove is a gun not a flower6 years ago in Open More Like This
Is a replica
I am not the pilot
I am a copilot.
We are reenacting murder.
I am the knife that cuts
Through butter but not bone
For that I must become a bone saw,
But I am not a shape shifter.
What is love?
Love is an obstacle.
Love is a Popsicle,
Melting out in the sun and my hands are all sticky.
Love is a gun, not a flower.
Sunnyside UpOur Sunnyside up is upside downSunnyside Up6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We are hiding in the dark from ourselves.
Afraid to come out and face the pitchforks
When it isnt raining I dare not venture
Alone into the woods.
Like Hansel and Gretel
The birds would eat my bread crumbs
And I would be lost and unable to find my way back home.
Wouldnt want to be late to my own wedding
So I think I will stay here where its safe
And I can use the phone.
I live inside a comfortable prison
But I am uncomfortable with myself
Life is fucked no matter how you flip it
But I am convinced I will find happiness
A few miles down the road.

For his bloody knuckles
To color pretty pictures,
He'll exhibit with pride when the work is done.
All he really needs
Are his eight red markers
To help him express the anger
He keeps bottled up inside.
Daddy is an artist and I am
Living proof of his ability
To cause pain.
My skin is a canvas you can use over and over again,
Welcome to the museum of horrors
Where you can admire the beauty
In every bruise, scrape and blood stain.

before the words learn to crawl
They are as dangerous
as the bullets inside a gun.
Keep your kids inside your home
where it is warm and safe,
And i can't get my hands on them
or i swear you will regret ever having them.
I am unsafe, but safe to talk about
when i am not around.
i am lost and not found,
but can't tolerate your fucking clowning around!
And like john wayne gacy,
i too have learned to fake a smile.
Soon, you will learn that it isn't easy
to protect your child
from something you cannot see,
it is you that you should protect them from
It's painful to know that you are your
own worst enemy.
BulletsThe floor is soft,Bullets6 years ago in Open More Like This
We sink in pink delight

Speeding away from the light.
High-pitched screams puncture my lungs,
We meet the end like a pair of loaded guns.
Bullets, bullets, we are all just bullets
But some are butterflies.

Leave me there to wither like a severed flower in the sun,
I am useless.
Its the same old taste the same old heartbreak
Youd think wed be used to it,
But we are young and inexperienced
So take me back to where you found me drop me off
Then drive away and let me die.
I need someone in my life
To tell me Im worthwhile until Im full of it,
Because right now I feel worthless not priceless
And I would sell my soul for a dollar if only
You considered me worth your time.
I love you and I wish you knew just what you mean
To me, but you dont care you are somewhere in the air
With the birds soaring in the sky glad to be living your perfect lie.

Contemplate suicide too,
And the roses out in the garden, devoid of all hope,
Dig graves for one another?
Tell me, what can I do when your children
OD on LSD and cocaine while trying to flee from reality,
And the dream catchers that hang over your infants crib
Like a black widows web become a nest for man eating spiders?
Is it normal for a son to want to murder his own father?

the day she found me searching for love
in all the wrong places.
It must have all been in my head
because of all the people i know,
she was the only one with a thousand faces.
"Are you here alone?"
The sound of her soothing voice
was the sweetest thing i had ever heard,
like a distant echo.
"I can take you back to where you belong
if only you could learn to let go,
trust in me as i trust in you and i will show you the
meaning of the word "low"
i promise it will be the last time you ever complain
about the path your life has taken, do you even know what it's like
to be completely forsaken?"

well, it means you will never see the end.
Never rest from a long walk or flight
and if you are crawling...better be prepared for
the sting of eternity.
It leaves you with a sour taste in your mouth,
and a heart that shatters but never really falls apart.
What does forever mean?
It means you are a prisoner of time,
A picture in a gallery of art
that is not for sale.
A bread that is left to grow stale
out in the sun...

The sun and the snail.
The bullet in a .357 magnum!
I am the lipstick or lip gloss on
The lips of a hoe.
I leave a slimy trail wherever I go
I am the sound of heaven
Going away when youve sold your
Soul for more than what you earn in a day.
Ill bring you down when you are glad
Lift you up when you are sad.
I am the good and the bad in your meaningless
I care for you when you care less for me
I am the worst enemy you can ever encounter.
I am alpha and omega in your parody
The punch line in your silly joke if you want me to be,
But if you mistreat me I am a nightmare!

We are Reeses pieces celebrating the birth of a new day.
Love thy neighbor as you love yourself,
Even if he turns out to be a traitor
Wish him no harm but luck and eternal health.
We are brothers sharing a single soul,
Different mothers but all heading to familiar hole.
Forget religion and politics,
Embrace the rainbow behind the dark cloud
The trees, the air and the birds soaring in the sky above our heads.
Forget who you think you are, we are one and the same
Both Caught in the turmoil of lifes twisted game.

Be engraved in my swollen heart.
My little gateway, my secret door.

For weeks, it was so warm and sweet
I refused to spit it out.
It was the only thing I could truly keep
Everything else just fades away
With time, leaving one shrouded in doubt.
Was it real or just a dream?
Am I awake or still asleep?
I sit alone in an empty home
With your name sitting on the tip
Of my tongue tempting me to swallow it.
TwilightAs the sun sets in a splash of orange and redTwilight6 years ago in Open More Like This
Watercolors mixing in the beautiful vista before
Our eyes and our heads swing to and fro
Like the pendulum in a clock heavy with slumber,
I stop to wonder why?
We walk on fire for our convictions
Fight tooth and nail for our beliefs
Lifes not all beer and skittles
We are blind, dumb piggybanks of knowledge always gathering more for thieves.
Tools born for a single purpose
To propagate ideas that spread like a disease,
Fools prepared since birth to conquer and replace.
I thought you already knew this
Since it is all happening right in front of your face?
But I guess not.
Its the twilight of the gods, twilight of the idiots
Love is standing against all odds
As the mobs break into riots,
But you and i are here sitting at the end of the world
Absorbing the cool and delicate air of nightfall
As we stop to wonder why?

But i'm afraid you've arrived too late.
Tonight i will decide to leave or stay,
But it's not like it matters anyway.
Life will go on with or without me
Just like it always has,
So just ignore every word i say.

It will run as soon as it can
leaving you and me behind, two foolish idiots holding hands.

Because we've been chasing paper dolls
on a carousel until there was no soul left

And now that you are a memory
you still find the way to destroy
the good in me until i've become as cold and dead as a machine.
