The Town Of No RemorseIn a town so pure and sweet
lies a secret hidden deep
you can search high and low
you'll never find which way to go
faces plastered with a smile
gentle gestures, "stay awhile"
look beyond that curling grin...
everyone takes a part in it
even if they never mean it
(They never see it)
Turn a cheek and turn a chin
they wash their hands with soap and sin
move along now stand in line
take a ticket 'till it's time.
Once they have you in your place
this is where you'll spend your days
killing everything inside...
(and this is how their secret dies...)

Eternity Comes Only OnceEternity Comes Only Once9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
...In a dream of eternal youth
with beautiful eyes and unspoken truths,
dancing on a thin thread drawn by Selena
in a blue night when all four winds talking about peace;
...In that unique poem when love
shines more than the Sun God on your ring finger,
weaving lasting hopes on a delicate cobweb
in a white day of the beginning of all beginnings;
...In a cold afternoon of December
with memories which surrounds the Arctic Circle,
melting everlasting snows that floods the time,
paradoxically, leaving behind them the fire which burns your heart;
....In the black hole of a single moment,
with pain, with answers, with courage, maybe with joy, or Not,
Waltz with the time between seconds,
Eternity comes only once...

El Principio Del FinEl Principio Del FinEl Principio Del Fin1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Lo esperaba, hace tanto,
cuando las biliosas hojas caían,
tu rostro, suave, se desvanecía,
desaparecías, pero yo, sin percatarlo...
Reía, un sueño que lentamente moría,
no sin más creer en la inocencia que emanabas,
pero... cambiabas... todo pasaba...
y yo... humilde... abría mi cripta...
El tiempo pasa, pasa...
sin percibirlo, cambiamos,
quienes fuimos, mueren en el pasado,
cruel, despiadado destino, tanta agonía...
Comenzamos en el cielo,
en un profundo y estúpido sueño,
y nos hundimos en la profundidad de un eterno océano,
entre besos, en nuestros corazones, el principio del fin... escribimos...

Emotional collapseShe has beautiful yet distant eyes,Emotional collapse6 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
Staring in apathy at everyone in her sight,
She doesn't speak neither smile nor cry,
She just stays there, on a borrowed wheelchair,
And if she didn't she wouldn't care.
She is diagnosed with an emotional collapse,
A broken heart pathology contracted since his left,
She lives in a world made up to keep him back,
I miss her, though she never seems to remember that.
Every day I come to visit her I struggle to not give in,
To help in her recovery I have taken my violin,
Hoping that those notes will eventually touch her deep,
And rescue her from the hands of the monster she refuses to leave.
Soulmates no moreTears became too heavy to wipe away,Soulmates no more6 years ago in Open More Like This
Your heart beats dont sound the same,
The warm of your lap has never been so cold,
Your innocent eyes are stained with the lies you never told.
Caressing hands push me against the floor,
Your kiss does thrill my chest no more,
Love is not under our sheets bed as it used to,
Stifling my breath while Im cuddled to you.
Disappointment pumps from your twisted mouth,
Indifference leaves me stuck to the ground,
There is no soul mate for your selfish heart I fear,
Your old scars are too deep to ever get healed.
Between these harsh lines there is a happiness disguised,
Although it will never have the courage to overcome and thrive,
To reborn from the flames is too confused to be true,
I write this poem in an attempt to put my blame on you.

Broken HeartedFrom the top of this steep cliff,Broken Hearted6 years ago in Open More Like This
Before the doors of such ocean blue,
Waves down there crush as gulls fly away,
Whispers amid my windy hair cold my face.
Grey tones paint once such inspiring sky,
Sun woke up to outline the shadows at this time,
Groans and moans the wind stifles from my mouth,
Hate, for those moments I can't erase,
Love, for those tears you put in my face.
Your wrinkled photo is held on my chest,
Tears slip from my chin as I close my eyes to release,
Such yellow hairs tangled around my hands like those furious waves,
I give you to the wind, blowing away as the whispers say.
Such opaque light touches inside, those thick hairs I hide,
It takes time to face, such frozen hands as those despised days,
I realize, and barely can move my lips to smile,
Against the wind I get up and run, to embrace,
Your photo I once left the wind take.

our firm grasp,
but the pain

You wait patiently

No sorrow dwells

lay your head to rest.

A Writer's BlockA sense of pending doom overcomes a writerA Writer's Block6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Consumed in a frustrating inability
To construct a poetic sentence
For one is trapped in an exasperating moment where
So many words cannot be penned
Thus so many emotions that cannot be expressed
And so many insights that cannot be shared
All to blame on the burden called a writers block
A writers nightmare diagnosis
But one must let time heal
This temporary feeling of wordlessness
And one must let inspiration reopen
This blockage of poetic emptiness
For a writers next epiphany will soon come.
Life is Truly BeautifulThe day goes on and onLife is Truly Beautiful1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The nights seem to last forever
Here on the edge of hell
I'm attached to the artificial
Break free my chains of indignation
Open my eyes to the beauty of the world
Let down my selfish defenses
And let me breathe the fresh air of freedom
To bask in the light of the sun
To hold tight the moment
To go on through the darkness
Never holding back
Oh, my friends how time changes a person
How life can twist and pull you
The edge of the blade caresses
Offering a glimpse of sweet relief
But don't break down
Don't give in
Life is truly beautiful and majestic
If only you open your eyes
And don't be afraid to love it
To love each other
And most importantly
RueThere was a timeRue5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This

feel so desolate,
so far away

I cannot live in

and I would rip my

if it would but rid me of
the discomfort you breed.
