Mona Lisa smilingLet’s talk about wanting to fall apart;Mona Lisa smiling1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Let’s talk about over-riding the one instinct
we all have in common,
Let’s talk about not wanting to get out of bed
for a day,
Let’s talk about timing the whole day to have
the least amount of social contact.
Let’s talk about faking smiles more than not,
about inwardly grimacing every time someone asks
“you seem quiet today, what’s wrong?”
because how can you explain that for some reason
this whole spinning aimlessly around the sun thing has
gotten tedious and the only spinning you seem to
be doing is out of control.
(but there is a reason, one that stretches beyond
the oh-your-parents-divorced-what-a-shame and the
oh-your-dad-wasn’t-exactly-what-we-expected and the
because I can’t see an end to the worst things and my bad luck
is coming in ninety-nines.

Bırak beni hancı
Bırak da yoluma gideyim
Gidilecek uz, katran bir yolum var
Ama önce bir bardak daha şarap koy
İyisi mi testiyi bırak
Bırak testiyi, sonra gideceğim
Sedir kokulu sofaların üzerinde
Sütliman uykular uyuyacağım hancı
Ve unutacağım pişmanlığı
Unutacağım buğday tenli kederi
Şişelerce intikam aldığımı
Öyle bakma hancı
Bundan sonra bu enkazı kimse kaldıramaz artık
Sonra dünya yansa umrum değil be hancı
Kim ağlamış arkamdan
Kim büzmüş yılgın çenesini
Kim kızmış bana, dövmüş toprağımı demirden avuçlarıyla
Adımı haykırmış bulutlara
Söyle onlara, bana beyaz çiçek getirmesinler

Tek anım geçmedi
İçinde dilek olmayan
Senden bildim gözlerimi
Gözlerimi kapadığın herşeyden
Yaş damıtacaktım söz verdim
Şimdi ak zamanı
Tek anım geçmedi
İçinde zan olmayan
Senden bildim hayallerimi
Gözlerimi açtığın hakikatten
Gül damıtacaktım sus verdin
Dilek küpü böyle kırılıyormuş
demek şimdi yaz zamanı
gölge ağacının dallarına tutunmak mı olurmuş
ol zamanı öl zamanı
Guilt that eatsMaybe I should have questionedGuilt that eats1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
why your teeth always chattered
like fingers clicking on a typewriter,
and why your fingernails
looked as though faint, blue ink
had bled through
but who questions anything
at the age of sixteen
and maybe I should have noticed
the lunches you spent
or listening to music,
as you gave away your lunch,
because you said
you were not hungry-
and I silently thought
more for me
and maybe I should have wondered
why you walked through the hallways
with pockets of graphite
under your eyes,
as your knees knocked together
like keys on a lanyard:
and maybe then
I wouldn't sit here with guilt
that eats at me-
like you never did.

iki amcam 2 ölüm ve bir ad miras bırakmış
ben hep o ırak evlere yerçekimsizdim
düşün, atmosfersiz hava sürekli düşülüyor
kafa patlata patlata
tedirginliğin ne çok örümceği var
oysa sadece 1 yer gösterici olmak idi hayalim
karanlık kayalıklarda yengeçlere yol gösteren

the rain is drilling holes into my head and the grass is screaming from the weight of the world on its shoulders. i can't seem to sleep nor do i deserve it, seeing as how i've kept you up for the past three nights straight, wondering if i'll even be able to answer your call in the morning. i've made you promises, and you've made me promises, but promises don't mean shit when the only thing keeping my head above water is a noose.
you told me to tell you everything, so i told you about how i used to cage birds and steal their wings because all i've ever wanted to do was fly. i told you about the night that i went from 11 to 30 in fifteen minutes and about how the brick wall i was held up against was the only thing to soften my fall. i whispered about how each star represented a time i've been hurt and about how the man behind my blinds makes me want to peel my skin off. you asked about the girl in the mirror and i told you about all the lies shes fed me over the years. y
OlvidoOlvido... una palabra que hace recordar tantas cosas,Olvido4 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
siempre se me olvida olvidarte, bebía para olvidar...
y olvide que estaba bebiendo, más tu recuerdo sigue presente,
cómo el primer día, cómo la noche, cómo la primera cita,
cómo la primera vez...Más el dolor también sigue presente,
cómo la primera mentira, cómo la primera lágrima, cómo el primer adios...

i've been sitting here with empty nothings in my head, trying to figure out the words to tell you how sorry i am, but my tongue won't untie its' knots. i've been scratching and clawing my way through the wall i've put up between you and me. my fingers are bleeding and i can't seem to stop, but i'm giving up, and you should too.
i'm just a walking ghost of past disappointments and glistening scars that never seem to fully heal. i want you to enfold me in the cracks and forget about me forever, forget about the night we kissed under the stars and how i told you i'd keep you from drowning. i've been treading water for the past seven years now, i can't drag you down with me any longer.
i feel like a child. do you remember when we were in mrs. kane's class in fourth grade? that's when i first met you, we had a fake wedding outside at the playground and we had emily and zack be our ring bearers. it's kind of sad, really, how much we've changed. i wish we could have stayed 10 forever

i'm sitting in math class again with the teacher who tried to kill herself last year. i can't concentrate because all i can hear are hearts beating and it irritates me because i know that none of them are mine. my stomach's shaking on the inside from the pills i took this morning. it kind of feels like i'm floating on a cloud that's being anchored to the ground. it's hard to get up and move around because my head starts spinning all over again. it must be the alcohol. it's hard to describe what it's like living without feeling anything but feeling everything at the same time. i wish i could tell you, but the sirens are making it awfully hard to hear myself think.
i've been sitting here for quite a while now with my hands underneath my legs. i picked myself apart again and the doctors said they're getting sick of putting me back together. now all i can do is stare at the walls that only talk about suicide and bruised skin. i guess that makes me a wall. a

Everyone prefers people who aren't around any more,
We're all ghosts of one another - advertisements of progress and decline.
Every shadow abundantly reminds us of what could have been,
The horizon and all roads precariously remind us where we could be.
Memories of childhood smell like vultures gathering post funeral,
Wedding rings for funeral fingers the rich don't understand the poorer.
All parties preach revenge warming tombstone veins - truth's just another fiction,
Clouds in star deprived skies dare to dream among stubborn flowers and bees.
Trash cities full of competitive stained-glass eyes and sex-obsessed artificial lives,
Rich towns are suicide towns daydreamers disappear into a clean mess.
Beautiful dreams asleep on dancing trees love increases its death toll,
Bad dreams born into uprooted and wilting family trees.
Falling in love with anagrams of ourselves withdrawing into what we miss,
Real love cut back like rose bushes, for reality is the dreamers thorn.
