Dancing in the Desert Mirrored ceilings, velvet floors,
a chauffeur driven limousine.
The Party can never start,
until you make the scene.
Learning nothing, leaving less,
faster faster never slow down.
Lost in the silver lining,
locked in the merry-go-round.
The silver spoon begins to tarnish,
the music, the booze, the midnight lines.
Left alone now, the parties all over,
played it close too many times.
Dancing in the desert,
dust stinging in your eyes.
Took a mischance of fortune,
too make you realize.
A simple toss of ivory dice,
twisting, twining, threads of fate.
Caught up, lost in the dream,
now hope it is not too late.
Once you have become,
you can be no more.
Pick the path to follow,

Screaming at me,
clawing at every inch
of my body.
That little voice inside my head
sounding strangely like my own,
tearing me down,
from the inside.
Each hate-filled blow,
hits harder than the last.
Each self-inflicted cut,
hidden in shame,
nonexistent to the piercing eyes of others,
visible only in that lonely mirror reflection.
little dotted lines drawn
over every flawed bit of me.
Not pretty enough,
There is not a perfect inch
within my being.
Why can't I be beautiful?

from the crevices of her mind
because it's the only place
where innocence still remains;
and it is the only place
where she can think
without the corruption of the world plaguing her mind.

no longer existed
there is far too little time
to hold such bitterness in our hearts.
ii. the world would be a better place if
we found homes
in each other
home is where the heart is,
and my heart lies with you.
iii. the world would be a better place if
to believe in ourselves
it’s okay to fall
when you will rise once more.
iv. the world would be a better place if
the scars that adorn our bodies
in our flaws.
v. the world is a better place
because of your kindness
and everything you do.

a simple grammatic
prophylactic rhapsody in blue--
arms quaking, bones shaking the space
numb hands thrumming
one loud, unending beat.
Polymorphic mobiles dance naked,
so many stars against the vacant expanse
folding the unfolding words
into hijacked, weeping rhyme--
symbols struggling to implant it
in the stone cold static.

The PianistFingers gusting o'er the keys,The Pianist6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
How sweet the music sounds
That tinkles from the keyboard
And just how the mind surrounds.
The strongest heartfelt soul cry
That echoes without a word
Will cause the ache deep in the chest
Long after the last note is heard.
Oh, let this bliss endure,
Let it wash away my pain,
And let these tears that fall from my eyes
Be like a cleansing rain.
This sweet intoxication
Will never be the same,
Each haunting chord will bear away
A different part of my shame.
Sweet and sultry siren,
Your torture I'll endure
Until you take your final bow,
So lovely and demure.
I'll not forget this meeting
I've had with this, your kind,
I just hope that I will find one day
Your song's gone from my mind.

and you threw your last piece of my heart-
out the window.
100 miles an hour and i've become your cement,
poured and plasted;
these tears run thick.
Pryed away with the rusted spade,
you got your full house;
I've become the all in hand,

and dark ringed eyes,
she has a beautiful face,
but it holds lies.
A daughter born with a gift,
she stalks through the night,
with a power to kill all,
and even the son of light.
She is the dark you fear,
the one who lives in the shadows,
she can see through you,
and make you feel hollow.
Known for her art in shadows,
they call her Darkness,
a real treacherous girl,
a true sorceress.
She will cast a spell,
and eat at your soul,
fillng your mind,
with the dark that she loves.
your life is gone,
and shes satisfied,
with the job shes done.
Rain Like A LoverStifling heat blankets my wet skinRain Like A Lover4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
so thick my lungs claw to get free.
Craving cool air, getting nothing
but searing heat in fish-outta-wateresque gulps.
Blood boiling under baked flesh;
mechanical based cold unable to quench.
Mouth dry as the Mojave in the height of June;
like bare feet walking on hot coals, slave to the sun's tune.
Hit and strike, lick and kiss,
the sun is the master and I am nothing.
Tongues of liquid black, the tar runs wild,
and I am running back to the arms of its wild child.
Can't breathe as I struggle for clear thought.
Stumbling as I run with no obvious destination.
Naked and wishing for unpromised relief;
clawing at my flesh to remove another layer of something.
Something that can never be removed,
breathing space never granted,
smothered under a burning blanket
no respite within sight.
Then it happens.
The sky turns bruised and ripped,
lightning kisses the air like a hungry lover.
The wind begins to caress my skin;
I close my eyes in ecstasy as rain blankets

It's colour on my cheek,
It's hard to breathe as tightness
Squeezes my ribs until they creak.
My heart is beating far too loud,
Why can't he hear the sound
As he invades my private space
And with arms, me does surround?
And then his face is closing in,
His breath gusts 'cros'd my face
And though my knees are shaking,
I'm stuck here in my place.
So soft his lips are gracing mine,
Emotion is conveyed,
And through my closing eyes I feel
My whole life I've betrayed.
I want to shyly pull away,
Oh, this I just can't face,
And should someone come barging in,
No way could I keep grace.
But I can't turn away right now,
There's no way I could go,
Not only would I hurt him here,
But my own pain would surely show.
So what if I am insecure,
So what if I'm not you.
So what if I won't fade away?
I've proven that I'm not blue.
And though this moment's awkward,
And though I'm as red as a balloon,
I'll endure this torture
That I know will end too soon.
