Something You Can't FixWe're in the woods, just the two of us. I have on my best trainers, the ones with rainbow laces and the place on the back that Max chewed through when he was just a puppy. Your steps are bigger than mine but it's a game I try to jump into the hole your shoes leave behind. I'm a frog; I'm a kangaroo; I'm magic.Something You Can't Fix3 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
"My legs hurt" I tell you
"It's just a bit further."
You sit and pull me down beside you, point through the undergrowth "Do you see it?"
I shake my head and you pull me up, pushing towards a tree until I climb. "The pond, do you see the pond?"
From up here, I can. It is a fractured, jagged edge lying on the ground.

The Shifting Nature of RealityYou asked me, "In these dreams, what does it look like?" I told you it looks different every time. Sometimes it's like a million feathers falling, sometimes it's like snow, sometimes it's like little stones, sometimes like ash, sometimes like a fine sand blowing across the hills. It's always silent. It falls around me but it never touches me. It never sticks. I told you sometimes I see dim figures walking in the distance through all the falling white. I told you I wish one would turn around and come to me. I wish one had your face. I wish the pink of your cheeks and blue of your eyes would appear to me unveiled from out of the drift.

On your ember breath of sighs
A phoenix rising in your eyes
Consumed with passion, then it dies.
Spider silken silver cords
Tying close the rabid hordes
Interlacing colored words
Soars the soul on painted birds
Try to find the meaning here
Curiosity dipped in fear
Candied layers fool the seer
No more truth seen in her tears
Poked and prodded with the pen
The paper gives it up again
Ink like blood fools wise men
Keeping secrets in its den
All the coins that were spent
All the ships that were sent
always with the wrong intent
truth themselves they can't invent
Heartened truth we cannot find

♡To freeze my heart
I'll sleep in the rain
Take the pain away
I won't cry in pain
Even if every tear
washed away in the rain
Every time I look ahead
I don't cry
Because you aren't dead
You didn't die
I didn't shed a tear
Because you're still here
A frozen heart
with no fear♡

I try to take a breath. All I inhale is death. I'll sit here till my body rots, with the blood. The pain sinks in. All I feel is hate. The world is no longer free. Our leader is fear. Everyone forgets hope. The love is fatting. You act like everything is ok. It's not. No one noes anything anymore. They hide the fear, they hide the remorse. They hide it all behind the laughs and smiles. No one is ok. We all wonder. Welcome to the end.

Smashed china crunches beneath feet that don't dare move and somewhere something bigger than a mouse scurries for cover.

As if it were my bed.
It is where I feel the most at home.
In my darkness,
I draw close the emptiness,
As if it were the warmest blanket in existence.
And for my pillow?
There is nothing.
It's only a metaphor, for crying out loud.
A testament to finding love.It was an easy start, but it was a race that was yet to be run in its entirety, each time he catches the wind, the world pulls him back. Living like a broken kite stuck on moulding string he drags himself into the air as the wind rises. Pulling the hands that held him tenderly he folds dreams around him in the tattered rags of ten year old clothes.A testament to finding love.3 years ago in Haiku & Eastern More Like This
Was it so quiet?
The first night that I met you
Was it this cold then?
Sleepily reaching to beckon the clashing of feet, the crushing of lips, the entrancement of hands and the pulse of eyes that hold onto endangered landscapes of flesh. The last of his dreams of love holds itself stubbornly

Staring at the blank
Sheet of nothing
And I thought of all the darkness I had gone though
all the shit
all my mistakes
all the fucked up things of done
And then I thought about of all the love
the greatest things that I could feel
and a smirked at the page
I was ready
And slowly I rested my fingers on the beautiful keys
'I sat there thinking of what to type
Staring at the blank

Immortal Arpeggio Ch. 1 Salty waves beat a vicious tattoo against the sharp rocky cliff foot of Kavanagh Island, a tiny, tropical place famous for its beautiful sunrises and excellent learning centers. On the porch of one of those famed hotels built sidled up to the edge of the cliff, allowing its porches to stick out over the edge, Tyler tried to rip a strange mans strangling hand away from his abused throat, endeavoring to open his airways and take another precious breath. The man had him dangling over a terrifying drop down into the raging ocean below.Immortal Arpeggio Ch. 13 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

But in malice, I am innocent, grave
may be my demeanor, but passions pale
when measured against my purposed and brave
affections for you. Respect and passion,
immeasurable and of a treasure
unearthed only by your beauty, I've won
nothing in this life if not the pleasure
of your sweet presence in my day and night
until the end of all things. You are birth
and death, the breath of angels in their flight
as they consider a man's word and worth.
I have given mine, and am content I
will lay with you alone, until I die.

Turning AwayI'm empty, and nothing made by human hands can fill me.Turning Away3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I may sound strange, or mad, or insane. as a matter of fact I'm all three.
I know I'm different, not like the others. I know I'm not normal.
Otherwise, how could I feel so hollow?
There is a spot in the center of my chest where I can feel it the most.
Look inside- can you feel it too?
Everyone has something they think will fill it.
But guess what. . . it never does.
So we go along searching all along for the thing we need most,
A thing that can't be found. because we're looking in all the wrong places.
We look in love and in hate in our jobs and our friends,
We look in

Let your heart get heavy too.

Or see what life is about,

But the war has just begun.
We have a long way to go,
But we have no guns.
I know our love is true
But I don't know if you're the one
I don't think we have won
because this war has just begun
its only just begun.
Can I keep on fighting?
Will I hang on?
To this love we share,
Our hearts we bear
But I can't stay for this one.
It's not a war we can win
time is not something I can spend
Not when its my life that can end.
This war has only just begun,
but time, has already won.
