Masochism? I think so.Masochism? I think so.6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Ankles, wrists, wrapped in chains
Eyes closed behind my own Black Veil
I don't ever want to see the light of the sun again
I'd be much happier this way I think
Your voice more sacred than any deity
Heavy iron rather than a spiritual link
It's even better if you just toss me aside
There's a certain beauty in unrequited love
That makes one soar like Icarus inside
Servants shouldn't love their masters after all
Such aspirations are doomed to fail
But at least one is lifted high before the fall

You broke my heart and shattered the pieces.
You took the shards and ground them to dust.
Story book heart break is that what this is?
Here come the tears I'm starting to rust.
I took an Asprin, it didn't work.
No kind of painkiller, can kill this kind of pain.
Is it just me? Am I going berserk?
Lord take away my perpetual rain.
You saw me laughing, you wondered why.
Just yesterday I was there, and you saw me cry.
That made you mad, such sweet rapture to me.
Why do you feel you have to hate me?

fluorescent like that
in a train station-
millions of miles
held in the same breath
beneath the same roof-
flutter in rolling hills
sometimes like the moon
and sometimes like the sun.
it is like the day and night
of you that i see-
the day, so many more miles
like that train station,
than the complete lack of space
and utter abeyance of distance
we would find at night.
i fear that,
your absent heart
will become ugly to me;
simply your fear
will turn my hurt to flame.
it is already too much
to flicker from rose to dessication
in the matter of times
the secondhand twitches.
all i ask is for
honesty, as exposed as
tree roots to the desert sandstorms.
i promise peace, ease,
and the everlong relief
that i will be quiet
for you once more.

Gone but not lost
Eyes powerful and courageous
Regardless of the cost
A phoenix struck down
Only rises from its ashes with fiery brilliance
Not a single a moment of doubt
A flawless image of awe inspiring resilience
No damage is irreparable
Even when hope cannot be found
Nothing can shatter the spirit

change your mind
find it in your
to feel a little something
if you saw the words
you've pulled from
uncovered by your lips,
i find poems under my hands.
i write strophes and lines
imprinted on your skin
when i move my fingers away.
i have so much to
i could give you so much
but you slink like a
nightcrawler from light
to a comfortable recession,
we will talk again
and no stammered heart
will beat like birds
if our hands touch;
you will realise
that sooner than you have,
you could have
shared your self
with someone else
and been safe-
you would have been
