wild and untethered
from now-loose neurons -
Oh how it flew
for that blind moment
before the lacework broke
and flung serotonin
against baroque wallpaper.
The Art of Ownership .it is disgustingThe Art of Ownership .2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
how much i want to possess you
keep you in my pocket
and seal you between my ribs
in the place
i used to keep my treasures
as a child
i had a dollhouse
and i was dictator of the
delicate little figures
i controlled them
bent their fragile limbs
forcefully made them
i have a habit of breaking things
my past littered with
shards and splinters
of things once whole
somehow i tend to ruin
the things i like the best
because what fun is it
to play with something
that is perfect
now i have you in my sight
and you're the flawless candidate
for me to swallow down
like the greedy child i used to be
you're just like a doll
it would be so easy for me
to snap your porcelain neck
Mirror, MirrorMirror, mirror, on the wall,Mirror, Mirror2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Watch it crumble, break and fall.
Look at all the bloody glass,
How it reminds them of a severed past.
Watch a reflection slowly disappear,
Looking at all the shattered, crushed mirrors.
A breathless state of mind goes by,
Am I just alive or did I die?
Confused and in an awe,
Careless people unknown to what one saw.
Throat slit so one can't be unlocked,
Too bad the thoughts have become blocked.
Crimson splatters, dripping, breaking away,
Thou shall not know the feeling of all the pain.
Oh, Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Why did you crumble, break and fall?
Lets Cheer You UpThere is more inside you than you possibly know;Lets Cheer You Up6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
deep inside you lies hope waiting to be found,
treasures waiting to be discovered,
and a heart waiting to grow into something beautiful.
Possibility for a new day floats around us always.
Each day comes with its loveliness,
having the ability to lift us up higher than the stars.
If you ever want to find a miracle, look in the mirror;
everything about you is miraculous;
know the miracle that is you and do good with it.
Have inspiration and be inspiration,
even on the cloudy days.
Never stop soaring to new places.
Never stop believing you can soar.
And let love be the light at the end of the tunnel.
Our DutyWe swallowed the path homeOur Duty2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Because we were hungry,
Though starving is an ongoing
Story, an empty bag
Dancing in the streets,
Full of an unfastened voice
Walking through the house,
Wind unchained, heart admonished.
Heaven fills its eyes, crawls away,
That sleeping boat content to follow
The vacant waves, intervals
Of dying that we dare not interrupt,
And we watch the kind ear shrinking
From our charcoal docks; heaven
With a full stomach crawls away.
This is what we were put here for.
EndlessThe darkness matches your eyes,Endless2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is it too much of an unfair accusation?
Or a bit too sad?
Perhaps it's a little too certain,
but I can't seem to care.
The kindness of your poems stirs
too many feelings I once buried,
an endless hunger, an exhaustion
that forced me to drop my jaded rings,
and lose the rose I once planted in my heart.
I offered you a field of bread,
soft pillows, and barely survived
the stomping horses that dragged
carriages of almonds to your feet
instead of running to the far edges of the world.
Spill your answers into me,
I still can't get myself to care,
whatever you say has lost its meaning,
I no longer know what's lie and what's the truth.
A wall stands between us now,
and darkness goes well with candles and wine,
but still a perfect match for the look in your eyes.
I know you're scrambling a reply, but
I know it's just as scattered as your shadows,
we no longer have a light.
I breathe, you breathe.
I blow, you blow.
I toss left and right, you toss ten
Tears of GlassI wish I had someone to comfort nowTears of Glass2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
like the girl staring back from the mirror-
I would whisper my love and hold her hand-
I would soak up her tears and find her smile.
But I can’t dry tears that are made of glass-
I can’t hear lovers’ words that are my own.
There is no one here who will hold me close,
and no companion I can charm to smile.
The only girl with whom I share sorrow
stares back from the mirror with tears of glass.
