'Don't go towards the light.'
It's amusing to consider how mankind always attempts a grasp at the unknown, pointlessly peddling their theories on one another in a endless struggle to understand what, simply put, cannot be understood. Perhaps we should consider that the mind is not yet capable of comprehending the concept of 'undefined,' just as it cannot truly grasp the idea of infinity or true nothingness
Regardless, the way we go about it, you would think there was a bright silver path waiting for us on the other side. That when our brush with death becomes more than a passing touch there must be some clear moment for us to decide 'to go, or not to go?'
But no and now, looking back, I don't fathom how I could ever have believed that.
I remember the feeling only too well, like being suspended in warm nothingness, held firm in all directions by a gentler force than gravity. By t

swallowed by tears
yet in spirit,
together, our hearts stand strong

The saddest are those you hide
Beneath music when your voice dies.
A trembling shy memory of slumbering minds,
Living on what's have been past behind,
How to smell a rose that died?
To roses that walked along your side.
When the sense is rotten yet sublime.

Life has become too much to bear
So now I take my last breath of air
You have hurt me far too often
So now I lay into my coffin
Everyday you cause me pain
Now I've finally gone insane
How to do it? How to do it?
Arsenic, cyanide, or maybe a bullet
The method chosen, I raise the gun
My suicide has now begun
Sweating fingers pull the trigger
My lust for death can get no bigger
A single gunshot heard all around
Now my lifeless body hits the ground
My head, the bullet has passed through
Now I've taken my life
And it's all because of you

Thomas sat hunched over his worktable in the corner of the dark shop, tired green eyes peering alternatively through his mixed set of lenses and magnifying glasses. The slim silver tools in his thin fingers never once clinked together as he worked, turning over the dozens of tiny metal gears and springs laid out before him, checking each one studiously for the hundredth time that week.
He didn't know what he was looking for. He knew he'd find nothing. The pieces were perfect, crafted and meticulously cut from the finest metals. They gleamed in the light of the table's single candle, reflecting the shifting shadows that flicked across the room. He'd never seen anything like them in all his yearsmuch less held such things in his handsand Thomas' aged heart beat furiously as he gazed at them through the glass.
The Pale Gentleman hadn't been lying There was certainly something special about these parts

Silent TearsAs tears form in the corner of my eyes, my eyes shine bright like gemsSilent Tears3 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
The sad look appears, yet I don't know why its there
I feel different, yet the same
It feels like i'm loosing my mind
Who am I right now?
Is it still me, or has someone borrowed me as a mask
Silent tears fall as it ponders through my mind
I feel like they will never stop
People look at me and see nothing wrong
Yet the silent tears keep falling
Peaceful NightBlissful peace from the sound of you breathingPeaceful Night3 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
Hearing your heart beat slowly like a sweet love song
Running my fingers through your hair gently
I kiss your head without a sound
Looking so cute and sweet while you sleep
Not wanting to close my eyes, cause I wanna keep seeing your sweet sleeping face
Yet my eyes close slowly as I grab your hand
I whisper under my breath I love you so much
As soon as those words are said I fall asleep with a smile
