The Sunbathers2.The Sunbathers2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A temple by the water
is soaked in faith.
They throw their painted idols
in a pond bathed in yellow chants,
tanned under a malaria sun.
Elephants sip clay through their trunks
and sling it on their backs
methodically as if in prayer.
I remember young brown eyes
and red marks awake in darkness,
shining through retinas
of firefly light.
Children placed the sun in a jar
deserts have burst into Manhattan glass
by all that glow.
I have heard the gnarled trunks of spiced men
mumble of 330,000,000 gods,
and the reincarnations of one that strikes through
the corkscrew of death in time.
Or maybe it's a piece of yarn,
pinched and sliding to the fray.
It is eons too late for us.
Let me drownLet me drown2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
It seemed as calm as an ocean could be
Almost as wide as the sea
With a mind that vast
How couldn't I dive in?
I guess that's why I decided to swim
So I delved into the deep ocean blue
I swam looking for you
I dove into the abyss
And I found this:
A snuffed out light
A heart that someone broke with all their might
A few broken parts
And some lost art
All of this caused me confusion
So I kept going to reach my conclusion
I wanted to see more
I kept straying away from the shore
After awhile I became lost
I felt my mind lose conscious thought
The water around preceded to choke me !
The lights grew darker so that I couldn't see!
I rushed to the surface to get back to land
But the water charged after me as I swam
The surface by then had turned into a storm
The ocean had taken on a horrible form
It consumed the sky and all around
There was no such thing as solid ground
The waves took me and dragged me down.....
And I felt myself float away
and begin to drown.....

a shy flame,
a candle left on a park bench
lit and melting
drops of wax between
the wooden seams.
White water from a stone fountain
slides past shooting-star coins
leaving little bubbles in the grooves.
A child bites her mother on the grass,
and I thought she'd bleed caramel
and I thought about animals
(wishing on a drowned out star).
I'm forming quiet,
oil-scented puddles on the ground;
this fountain holds a shimmering
metallic cover beneath the water.
Natural art museum,
a shy flame getting pinched
by licked fingers,
smothered in conversation.
Death Plays the PianoAnd he's not bad either.Death Plays the Piano2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Arrived at the third funeral today, the sun
Was shining, the bouquets and wreaths
All in their respective vases, their dignified
Grief, yes, no one
No one really knows
Why he showed up.
Now here's the room, we'll hold the service
Here, right where there
Is enough room, there's
Plenty of room where that came from.
And the casket, open
We don't want the body
Unseen like the circumstances
That led to
He's really quite good isn't he?
Skeleton hands and everything?
Must've had a lot of practice, with
These types of things.
Death plays the piano, well
Who would have thought?
You can hear Comptine

From the movie "Amélie"
Fall in little cascades
Down on the grass gardens
At this time of year.
Your face, my friend
Has never been so lovely.
The body? Oh, yes.
The river's at the seams
Charon, be a dear.
Here's five-and-a-half pounds

The path of salvation, light to follow
Are you lost, my dear little soul?
In the shadows you have been too long
My tears, where are you?
The pain I need to release
Release out of me
Please, my tears
Come back to me
Oh wings so white, hold me
Please don't let me fall
Heal my broken raven wings
Let the angel rise once more
Eyes, eyes, be aware
Enemies are stalking us
In the shadows, in the dust
We see them before they come
Eyes, don't you fail me
My heart, nowhere you are
They once tore it apart
Pieces hidden, lost
No heart, no heart
Who am I?
Who am I?
Lost in here, away from there
My mind shattered, yet so dark
I have no place to call home
My eyes won't face another day
A day without suffering
I have no heart to call own
I have no tears to shed down
I have no life to live for
I have no love to hold on
I have no dreams to share
Nothing I am

They think you are an animal;
They do not even pretend to care
You now feel like a fool.
They will not ever see
You too have a heart and soul;
They tease you mercilessly,
And you begin to lose control.
They think that is all right
Just because they can;
They ignore your bark and bite,
And you no longer feel human.
They cannot end their play-
Not that they have ever tried;
Your only hope as you pray
Is that they do not hear you cry.
You cannot understand what they find
So amusing in your pain;
You begin to lose your mind,
Forgetting you were ever sane
Or once knew a day when all
You felt were peace and joy;
So you weep and hide, scream and bawl
Because they made you their toy.
You blame yourself every day
For what they made you be;
And all you can pray
Is that your tears they never see
Even though this sorrow
Seems like it will never go away.
You hope that they might
One day know what they have done
By smothering your dying light
And only allowing you to figh

beneath us. I imagine
her to have a veil of make-up running
down her face, or maybe she is bent
in the shadow
of a crucifix or a sun catcher,
starving for some light.
I heard she once went bicycling
over the dry dirt
roads of Italy, and chased the man
she loved into a private
Then in Boston, or New Haven,
she would laugh, throwing
her stockings to the wind
as she watched them parachute
down where the children
They would smile ,
and life would begin.
But, really, as we drag and pull, she
is gone. She has moved past Amber

and holding them

I won't let you see me dying
Nothing changed we are still the same
You know nothing except my name
The river is flowing and rain is falling
The sun is setting and I'm still drowning
But I won't let you see me crying
I won't let you see me smiling
Times are changing life is going
Rain is falling and I'm still drowning
No one's here, no one but me
I've cried all night so you wouldn't see
I died tonight and return as a ghost
To let you see what you have lost
You never saw me crying
You never saw me dying
You never saw me even smiling
You didn't see me at all

SilenceSilenceSilence2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Silence is not an illness, no! Well
I choke myself with this unheard pain every day
Like a baby wishing to speak, but being simply unable to.
Every time I try to spread my voices wings and fly;
Noises of others push me back in a bird-cage.
Consider the Silence not to be a dieses but a sign, for
Every one of us tries to fly but sometimes we've just no wings for it.

There was a time when you made me feel beauitful
There was a time when you said I was special
There was a time when you made me smile
But now I am ugly.
There was a time when you were my everything
There was a time when you said we'd be forever
There was a time when I only wished for your kiss
But now I am alone.
There was a time when you said you'd fight the world for me
There was a time when I lived for you, and you for me
There was a time when we were inseparable
But now I am worthless.
There was a time when only you could stop my tears
There was a time when only you were there for me
There was a time when only you said you loved me
But now I am hopeless.
Ugly, alone, worthless, and hopeless.
Just look at what you've done.
Took a strong girl and left her broken.
Let me ask you, now was it worth it?

You may never say
And it's all wrong
White is turning into grey
You played with words
Now they're playing with your mind
Why won't you say?
Why did you left me all alone
I tried to run away
Writing on the black walls
Those simple words I said too much
But not enough
Speak your mind
Speak out loud
I let you drown in your own thoughts
You deserved it all
But I will never say these saving words
I just put them back on those black walls
Love=PainI don't have proper words in my mindLove=Pain2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
No proper scene in my eyes
Because love is so hard to describe
Some might say it's pure and innocent
Other says it's dark and evil
For someone it might be all the sense
And for other it might be without meaning
I don't know if I know the definition of the love
If I actually know anything at all
But I have something inside
Something what holds me in this life
Is it love?
I don't know
Maybe yes, maybe no
But as long as it makes me going
I don't really care how it's calling
I know it hurts
It causes pain
Makes me insane
Sometimes it makes me even cry
But it's worth to fight
Your love is poor if you can describe it
Cause real love strikes you as a lightning
It means all and nothing at the same time
It feels like heaven but the feeling lives inside
I said so many words right now
But still don't know what love is about
And I don't need to
All I need is to feel it

When devil falls for angelPlay with darkness I want to see itWhen devil falls for angel2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Penetrate it, wishing for me to feel it
I am the devil; you chose to be an angel
You play with fire, you play with danger
Hold your breath, don't scream just yet
Rain swept me off my feet, I'm lying wet
Chose your fairy tale, I'll be you magic
Let go your tears, it won't cause the tragic
Recall the feelings, give them breath of life
Even purest truth ends being a darkest lie
Longing for something you can't have
I refuse to live without you, I refuse to understand
Like the night craves to be saved by day
I crave for you, in each and every way
Questions with no answers, love is not reward
Everything seems so wrong but opposites attract
The devil and the angel never could decide
Was this feeling true or was it just a lie?
For those who dreamHave you ever asked yourself where you drift when you fall asleep?For those who dream2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Place with no borders, place filled with no life, place where we're reaching every night
Dreams, scary and terrifying, dreams sweet and satisfying, those dreams which come true and which were lying
Darkness surrounds our sleeping bodies, while we're dreaming, while we're flying, seeking for answers to unspoken questions we drift in unknown space, hunting and hiding in the middle of nowhere place
We sleep, we don't think, we're letting ourselves to dream, we don't understand, we wonder, we just feel
Did you ask yourself what we are dreaming for? Where our souls and hearts belong? Why when dreams are over the magic is gone?
How we could keep living, not wonder, not dreaming, we would be dead but still keep believing
Reach out to the stars, make a wish, ask yourself what you are, dream, dream don't ever stop
Dreams give new beginning inside of your mind, so go on, keep on dreaming
