New DivideWords that burn skin away like ashes,
Falling, crumbling, bleeding,
The broken glass of a shattered heart,
Let's leave the pieces where they lay
The strength of a drum; bang, bang,
The softly pounding heart,
The tears that crash like waves,
The screams that pierce the silence
Perfection is unattainable,
Life is death-defying,
Flaws are happiness,
Mistakes are to be seen

I'm afraid of your judgments.
I'm afraid of what you will think of me.
So I make subtle adjustments
And become someone you want me to be.
I hide behind my mascara and concealer.
Smile and respond when instructed.
I'm not smart or sexy enough to be a leader.
So I allow myself to become conducted.
I allow myself to become obstructed.
I allow myself to become abducted.
I allow myself to become corrupted.
I allow myself to become artificial.
I allow myself to become superficial.
I allow myself to become egotistical
And live behind a carefully applied screen.
Because my real face can never be seen.
It's easier to act like everyone else
Share the same values and tastes.
Believe the illusion and forget yourself.
Because the bare truth is to spiteful to face.
If you dare to stand out,
Expect no helping hand outs.
You have to completely give in,
If you want to be a part of the world that we live in.
After all, everybody just wants to be able to fit in.

Evil, is knowing better
But purposely doing worse.
Toying with love by the tether
And laughing when it hurts.
Prevailing by any measure
With no intention to reimburse.
Flaunting stolen fabricated treasures
Gaining what you never truly deserved.
To live a life of complete leisure
And never keeping to your words.
Manipulating and applying pressure
Because the rich and poor can never be merged.
The idea of a just world is just a rehearsed lecture.
Those who seek to create this will be publically purged.
We all fall victim to man kind's thin, green texture.

I see her heart is torn,
and darkness fills her eyes.
It kills me to see,
through her faded false smile.
And to know,
that I can't fix her broken heart.
All I can ever do,
is to hold out my hand to her.

her skin snaps like elastic; rubbery

somewhere, out of here (and trailing
impressions of bright lips cut along

her phone on the crescent curves:

the scratched CDs she keeps in
her locker: turn up the volume to split
her eardrums and lips. she splinters

her tiny, ceramic knuckles and joints; pulling

Piercing me with needles in the heart
How can you do this to me?
Yet I still follow you anyways
I indulge to your craziness
Then you hide your feelings
I'm not sure if you love me
Still I felt the hidden feelings
Somewhere buried deep
Hidden in facade
Eyes are staring at me
Glaring stares that thinks I'm a fool
Yet I don't care what people think about me
I just want you
to be happy in what I do for you
I was alive in the illusion I perceive that you love me
But now I see
I was a fool not to see
Dumb in every way
You think this is just a child's play
Maybe my love is just blind
Keeping my eyes close in the big difference in our world
You came from a rich family
And I'm just a poor man working hard to live
We break up and then you agree
I was broken and you felt free
Now I pretend,
Told you the things I had forgotten
Between you and me
Yet, I lied
Going with the flow of my charade
Those feeling gone
Things are just normal, even though its not
I started to pull away
Painted SmilesI saw the smile you hid from me,Painted Smiles2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So timid but wishing to jump to life,
That smile had given me hope,
A hope that things weren't so bad,
That the worries of separation were a farce,
But instead you wove a burning tapestry,
And laid it over my lips,
Halting my attempts to speak in protest,
Forcing my teeth upon my tongue...
....When you tell me it's over...
You told me you weren't happy,
You told me I trapped you,
Held you down,
locked you away in the cell of my heart,
When I know I have lost,
The walls must go up,
False smiles to say I'm okay,
Mannequin thank you's
Posing the one you left alone,
As a bird you'd suddenly freed,
Only to be a puppet strung high above,
Never showing the icy caverns within,
It is there that I dwell in silence,
Solitude in a crowd,
While silver eyes still watched you from afar,
Wishing for your happiness
I bite my tongue,
When my soul demands I scream,
Scream I still love you!

My light died with youMy light died with you2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
I breathe the lonely air you brought me
I journey life's challenges alone
I did everything I could to believe
That you would come back
But I know, I will always be alone
For the fact that you've lived in my darkest shadow
How can I ever tell myself that it's already impossible?
You have done enough, you've suffered enough, endured hard enough
You have done everything possible; I've done everything ever possible
Still it was not even possible
\ Why? /
Why is our life this way?
The pain does not hurt anymore, it's is just a memory now
But why do I have to remember it day by day?
You're a part of me that is hard to erase
A shadow that follows me everyday
My light died with you

They are sweet like sugar,
Dancing around mouth in blissful ecstasy.
I hear them sing a melody of excitement,
A rejoiceful, upbeat tune of fulfillment.
They're perfect, and leave me craving more.
They flood my mouth with a river of happiness,
The rich flavor is one of adventure and surprise.
It's like none other than I've experienced before.
I shudder as it caresses my mind,
Delicate and smooth.
It assures me it is here to stay,
And leaves me surprisingly satiated.
My body tingles from top to bottom.
I feel your words.
Oh, do I feel them.
I am renewed within them.
The whole experience has left me awestruck,
As I almost forgot to return this feeling to you.
I take another moment, along with your hands,
Look into those big beautiful eyes.
And give to you what you have given to me.

My heart has lost its hold,
My wrists are a slick,
Water stains my face,
All I hear is the residual tick,
As I disappear into white lace
You can't come back,
I can't go forward,
You can't face another attack,
I can't stand to listen to another word,
Glass shatters; skin is split,
There is blood; impact, hit
Laughter is a ghost,
Smiles are legends,
Days are nights,
Light is shadow

made of plastic, as she is.
Like a real girl,
she can breathe and love and die.
I'll Kiss You TomorrowI'll kiss you tomorrowI'll Kiss You Tomorrow1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
When the sky has reached its point of purple
And eyes lay closed upon feathered pillows.
I'll kiss you after my steps are unheard
And my window lets more air in.
When the ground is dead, but the sky alive,
When the trailing eye disappears: I'll kiss you.
Energy alive for only those in need of help
The heartache and lonely;
Will be the only witness' when I'll kiss you.
We won't be cared for or even noticed,
In this land of regret and unestablished purpose
Of true, but cracked brilliance, and ever truer trauma.
In the cobweb of time; I'll kiss you.
Our future won't carry the knowledge,
Our past haunts us from our content 'mistake'.
But for now, lets not care, lets be loved.
Under the blanket of truly beautiful, I'll kiss you
I'll kiss you tomorrow.

The burden of my still painful love,
Ready, to be scorned yet again,
If only it would help my unjust cause.
You could speak to me,
As you have done repeatedly as of late,
Even though, you turn back to him,
Knowingly or not, you still break my tender heart.
I shall write for you,
Whether you still think to read
Or continue with your blessed and blissful life,
As he threatens me for responding to you.
I only ask that
You might read for me,
Take these words in your soul,
Know that my love for you still burns,
As bright as the day we met.
I would ask of you,
Whether the words you do not say,
Are your chosen silences
Or those he has made,
To condemn our friendship.

and the rain of my paradise -

i could always feel terrible on a rainy day
no matter how happy
those drops make me otherwise.
it is under the rain
that my tears feel enough.
because no matter how broken i seem to be
i'm not broken enough
for you to take me seriously.
because when you see the sun outside
and the make-believe couples in love
kissing under steel apple trees
glancing up, squinting their eyes at the pretty,
it's so hard
for you to believe
that anyone aside from you could have it worse.
i dream of more than doing what you ask of me
more than counting things wrong with you
Last DawnI´ll never see the next sunriseLast Dawn2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
never feel again how moonlight floods my skin
see how light refracts sparkling in dewdrops,
and illuminates the shadow of eternal silence at the cemetery,
for a couple of seconds
listen, in awestruck quietness,
to the chant of the birds in the earliness of morning
lie in the green grass and think about nothing
and fly towards the open skies
marvel at the unreal blue sky,
in blistering midday heat
walk across the harvested cornfields
in cool november mists
catch the last leaf of this year
feel the first snowflakes tickle my tongue,
and let the ice flowers sparkle
stand on top of a skyscraper
and feel mighty
There will be a new morning
the sun will rise again
and extinguish darkness
cause light always returns
But it will return
They didn´t watch me leaving
and I passed away
in the first rays of the rising morning sun

it comes suddenly, soaking you to the bone to wash the same old yesterdays out of your bloodstream and leaves you feeling cold for longer than you can handle without making you sick.
time has played with my memories.
life twisted and turned until you faded out of it, like a moon that once ruled the sky hid behind the clouds. yet sometimes it gets curious and peeks from behind them, blinding me instantly.
a dull ache weighs down my chest.
it makes it hard to breathe when I realize that once the girl holding your hand was me. I was the one whose eyes you adored, whose lyrics you tried to decode, whose lips you bit in frustration. I was the one who made you cry, because you looked beautiful with tearstained cheeks and trembling hands holding me by the neck.
she can make you smile, but darling I made you laugh and scream at the same time, I made you break things to put them back together and in the morning I kissed you goodnight.

you'll find me in the jellyfish sea
i'll be waiting for your sea-salt lips
to claim me and your purple-pruned fingers to
wrap themselves around me and take me far,
we'll do a running start and take a leap of
faith off the edge of the earth and
reach up to kiss the stars -
spreadeagled, handheld in the sky
and sprout wings to tickle our faces as they
beat by our sides, and
we are euphoric,
goosebumps in the grass.

tell them i'll be making love in the jellyfish sea)
