I sit and watch as my happiness runs around me
I look down tears begin to form under my eyes
they spill on to the floor my happiness stops
and comes to my side i pick it up and throw it
it lands across the room it falls to the floor hurt
I feel a smile come to my face a sinister smile
i get up and look at the happiness lay there
emotionless i laugh it tries to get up but it knows
it's been defeated I walk away i talk to myself " I
will never need that rotten thing no now that ive
got hate" i walk only stopping when i reach the window
I look down and on the window's edge I go
I sit watching as the world turns dark, children
becoming monsters adults ready to leave this
place this world of hate and torror I begin to laugh
"this place is a bitter world always being taken over
by the things we always push away" I jump down talking
to the air "the one true thing to fear... Is the fear of being
taken over" and down i fall untill my emotionless body
lays on the ground leaving this place of ter

I woke up to the blaring of my alarm clocks incessant beep, beep, beep. I tried to turn it off so I could sleep for another 15 minutes but I missed it. I forgot that I moved the darn thing up and to the side on my home made bookshelf. Lifting up on my left arm I reached up to grab the offending electronic device. With a sigh, I turned to relieve my poor ears with one fell jab of a finger and got out of bed with more than a little resignation. I had to get ready for work which started at 12:30 P. M.
To make getting ready for work worse, my sister had a late shift that day as well. She waited until I started down the stairs before she jumped into the bathroom to take her shower. Needless to say this got me very angry. I was convinced that my siblings were born jut to torment me and drive me to the brink of madness.
Since I couldn't take my shower, I decided to make breakfast. My
Zu duenne LiebeZu duenne Liebe2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Mit weißem Fuß auf kalter Straße
Und kalter Hand im weißen Schnee.
Mit zitterndem Bein und pochendem Herzen
Zu dünnes Eis auf glattem See.
Mit tränendem Auge ins brennende Feuer
Und mit Feuer im Blick über Tränen gelacht.
Mit steinerner Maske und gläsernem Herzen
Zu dünnes Fell in kalter Nacht.
Mit handelndem Hass auf liebender Zunge
Und liebenden Worten für verhasste Tat.
Mit sterbender Seele und gebrochenem Herzen
Zu dünne Kraft auf langem Pfad.

A sunlit rose shall arise with the sun.
With burning desires betold, higher than the blue beyond.
And a passion unmatched by any other.
Everlasting love in red.
Moonlight lillies bloom in the glowing aura.
With absolute tranquility within the night sky.
The stillness of the water unbroken by its presence.
Delicate within a beautiful space.
To admire a beauty from a distance.
Because we are all waiting to be picked.
Whether in the light...
...or the dark...
You will be noticed.
PAIXAO DESESPERADAEnfim desnuda e fria descansaPAIXAO DESESPERADA1 year ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
à luz morna das estrelas do ocidente
mas no sono, erótica, ela dança
pelo amado distante, vão, ausente...
E sonha com os beijos bem ardentes
de quem habita seu peito maltratado:
seus olhos marejam lágrimas silentes
regando um rosto belo e inconformado.
Lisboa dorme opaca e insatisfeita
no silêncio irreal do teu desejo...
vencido regressa -mudo- o navegante
de uma terra outrora já perfeita,
enquanto tua alma desce o Tejo
na busca inconseqüente de teu amante.

When A Soldier Returns“Make sure you come back alive” they said.When A Soldier Returns8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
You’ll be strong.
You’ll be a hero.
We’ll all be proud.
Many times (when I dodged the bullets)
I thought of them never holding me again.
You can’t reach into a casket without spilling tears.
But I did make it.
I was going home.
I did come back alive.
I was a ‘hero’.
But I wasn't strong.
They won’t hold me again (or say how proud they were).
You can’t reach into rubble without spilling tears.
