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

i find myself asleep beside you
not dreading the most singular transition
between sleeping and sleeping alone
until i am wrapped
in my own bed
with too much space
i like thinking
of how this is not a memory
this is a moment
that is repeating itself
every time we find
the gaps between minutes
and fill them with ourselves,
like photographs i can't wait to take
and imagine so many times
of the lens reflecting us,
and how that feels
my feet are still unsteady
on a ground too nascent for tectonics
but i am feeling promise
in the way the camera catches you
looking at me
in ways i don't see myself
i like to think of how
you touch me
between mountain ranges
it is so jubilant
full like the clouds
forming castles in the heavens
and it is so soft
so lock and key
that i find myself
burning an obsession with heat
under my skin
where your fingers and lips

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?

endless hole of misery
nothing but pain for eternity
follow my pleasures into the sun
one day this life will finally be done
one day i wont have the final laugh
i will have no fears anymore
no hardship down the path
nothing left in store
ill have to step away
memories broken me in two
knowing i missed you to that day
realizing that i threw it away for you
so ill cut to leave a mark in me
a mark that i can never forget
a painfully pleasant memory
that i could never regret
so that when it comes.
that day i long inside for oh so deeply...
when im dying sadly and painfully to the audience of no one.
i can remember it... and hopefully, forget how you never remembered me.
