Snowflakes...The snowflakes fall in slow motion.
One reaches down to kiss my cheek.
I close my eyes, shivering.
It feels like you.
Like your touch. Your lips on my skin.
A tingling shoots up my spine.
I can feel your arms around me.
Hear your whisper in my ear.
I stare at the snow.
Frozen in time.
I pull you closer to me, and meet your lips.
Coaxing heat from you, demanding your warmth, your heart, your everything.
Suddenly the snowflakes touch me again.
I am awakened. Forced back to my harsh, cruel reality.
My world that is now without you. Without us.

Beating hard and fast
I know I love her more today...

I know she loves me more today...

Is it because I'm not a man...?

settling down long enough

her brother is an open book
sitting on a glass table

takes the time to read.
she sits in her room,
trying to figure out
what she is.
she doesn't know yet,
but she thinks
maybe she wants to be
more than just cardboard.
she wants to bathe in puddles
without melting like chalk.
she wants to hold the world
in her teacup and drink it
and have little people living
inside her, so they'll climb
into her heart and turn it on
so it works the right way.
they are a cardboard family
in a paper town.

extant.what is a year?extant.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
is it a cloud of gold dust
shimmering in the sky
made out of laughs
only in feelings?
the sound of the river the lightning
little lights on the hill or
the smell of the sky
when it rains?
could it be the taste of
sunshine on the tip of your tongue,
melting like a snowflake
absorbed in your skin;
like a waterfall of
ecstasy caving it?
but i think
it's a a combination of moments
that exist in the time
between the seconds:
when eyes meet,
when a car crashes,
when lips press together
or when the mail doesn't come.
when the sun won't come out
or you laugh till you cry
when you fall out of bed
or lose your favorite scarf in the wind
what is a year
but a string of moments
in the sea?

Spill my secrets.
Gave you my trust, my defenses down.
I told you things from deep inside,
Things no one but me knew.
Alas... you seized up and ran,
Leaving me exposed,
The pieces of myself floating on the breeze...
I watched you run,
Hiding in the darkest corner,
So you wouldn't see my tears...

And she drags me into eternal darkness...

No, love, that's me.
Because I DO still love you
After all you've let me see.
I accepted your flaws
And loved all of you
Yet I still never saw
What you were going to do
It's a movie I've seen
A plot I never saw
Because I could never look over
That one key flaw
I was so fucking blind
To what everyone could see,
That you were doing it again,
Thinking of leaving me
And once that seed's planted
It's just a matter of time
But you hid it from me
'Til the drop of the dime
You'll always be sorry,
But what does that do?
Just remind me
I wasn't worth it to you
You threw me away
And I'm STILL in love,
This love going nowhere
But paths far too rough
I should just walk away,
But that's just stupid me
Waiting around for pain
To just see how things will be.
Sleep Little ChildrenA scared little girl confined to her bed, as sirens ring chillingly through her head.Sleep Little Children3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Deep, unfamiliar voices fill the halls, as strangers carry her grandfather down tall stairs.
She can't stop shaking for fear of what might be, "He was fine, he was okay. He said goodnight to me."
Unable to sleep, but has so much to do, she tries and she tries but she just lies there like a fool.
A toy pink bunny held tight in her grip, holding for company that she is too scared to get.
She lies alone in a room so dark, as the sirens fade into the night.
Sleep little children in ignorant bliss, and do not awake to nightmare like this.

Where is there an answer?
To the demons in the river,

She's nothing but skin and bones.
Hear her being tortured,

Once fully loved,
once a young man's dream.
Now craked and broken,
lying on the floor.

not living anymore.

Many things to our dismay
They'd speak of death, and speak of sex
And many things we can't detect
They lock us in, and keep them out
Listen... Can you hear that shout?
They stand and watch, day to day
The one thing that will always stay
They may be strong, they may be thin
But always they will lock you in
They do not speak, they do not see
But... I feel something watching me...
They are a house, they are your home
Listen... Can you hear them moan?
There's something out there, something black
Something cunning, and with tact
They're watching you...
They're watching me...
Listen... Can you hear my screams?

I look, and see there's light
I kiss, and feel right
I hug, and I belong
I smile, and its real
I speak, "and I love you "

With nothing but this heart of stone.
And through the lonely days I weep
With nothing left but hate to seep.
Stuck forever in this hopeless night,
Too many scars from this endless fight.
And still I guess that I'm to blame
For making everything stay the same.
I could have changed it if I tried.
Instead I cheated and scammed and lied.
It's all my fault, can't you see?
That I'm my own worst enemy?

I want to feel a cold rush
Something other then this pain touch
Cover my sight and pull my hair
I want to be blind
Something to block the look in their eyes
I hate the world

Something to help me run would be great
Give me strength
I want to stay awake
Something that doesn't keep me still and weak
Show me a miracle
I want to feel alive
Something more than this life
Pull me close
I want to have an excuse to be special
Something breaking me apart from nothing
Press a pair of lips to mine
I want a reason to breathe
Something to keep waking up to see

with the eyes that shine like sun glistening off the fresh coat of snow.
Sort of like the one that froze over your heart so long ago.
And yesterday when the clouds stopped screaming I heard this voice as clear as day.
She sounded just like you, I just couldn't decide if she was any less vacant.
There was this undying thirst aching in my withered bones.
She was full of Decay.
Her aura slipped through my veins like a toxic serpent.
I just couldn't decipher the difference between good and evil.
And when she looked up at me I saw these little butterflies tied down to spiderwebs.
She was more like you than I could possibly bear.
Suddenly there was this raspy whisper that leaked from her cracked lips.
She said something along the lines of
'As long as you're alive, I'm still here'
Fear developed over my senses and I saw your face again.
You left so long ago, I really should learn to let go.
Evaporation started to take form in front of my eyes as you fa

I struggle because God told me that he doesn't like slackers,
and it is almost winter, and I have to believe in something.
His desk is so tall, I like to sit under it and stare up at where
the edge of the desk meets the ceiling and his hand tapping.
I don't like the cold, but God says that it builds character,
so I trek through it to get to something I once loved and it only
leaves me feeling small.
I was never a child, I told the interviewer when he climbed on
top of me. I was never born, I just appeared.
He wasn't listening anymore, but I kept telling him.
God sank into my skin when I was sleeping one night,
in a church somewhere east of here, and
He speaks to me now.
"God doesn't exist," huffed the Interviewer Man.
There was this man who said that if you spoke to God,
then you were praying. Lots of people pray in snow
And silence, but if they're silent then how does he hear them?
This man also said that if God spoke to you,
then you have schizophrenia.

Wishing that she was here right beside me...
So I can see,
Her beautiful face.
She makes me the happiest man,
And knowing that she is there I know I can do anything and everything,
For when I go lay down there is no other.
Wanting for me and her to get under the covers.
And dream a beautiful dream.
And with that she makes me fall for her everyday.

littlest movements, burps in time
sporadically moving us forward, where does that leave us?
we are insignificant, tiny little microbes
on the surface, barely moving
but every flurry of activity
brings us closer
to the truth
we are the littlest things
crashing glass, splintering metal
"what were you thinking!?"
i don't know, it all seemed so
"what were you thinking...what were you.."
but it's all ruined now.
this space is nothing but violent static
"she was too young, too passionate, too talented to die...she was a
bright mind, a compassionate soul, an original, what have we done
to deserve this...oh God, what has she done..."
we are the littlest things.
but even the littlest of things
can create a landslide.

All the troubled thoughts of my day,
Pull me down within your clutch
With your sweet embrace I won't fight much
For nothing else can quite be compare
To the effortless feeling of senses impaired
And nothing stops a wandering mind
Like the rough taste of air, impossible to find
So I'll clasp my eyes and sink away
Every so peacefully making my way
To the soft silky sand while I'll finally sleep
Where the downers of life can no longer seep
And once I feel rested, my sanity regained
I'll climb back out to where I once came
And smile with confusion at all that I see
Sweet chaos above, there will always be
But this chaos, this chaos, I do love it so
A place free of unrest I could never call home
And I'll disappear into the screaming as one
A world that makes sense could never be fun

You're still looking and I wish you were mine

Our eyes are locked and everyone else disappears
You want a hot mocha no whip cream
I already knew that, of course
As I hand it to you our hands touch and I imagine our future together

Bruises, tears, anger, hurt, pain, worthlessness, fear, slaps, fighting, hate, self-harm, apologies .
I tear my eyes from your beautiful face and turn away from you
I'm sorry I'm so fucked up and I'm sorry we'll never know
I sense you standing there wanting to say something
I'm dying to hear what it is
As you open your mouth to speak I walk away .
