I Never Cry
I Never Cry
It rips my stomach into seventy small pieces whenever you talk about the guy you just met, or your exboyfriends, or some prospective new boyfriends. But most of all, I hate when you talk about how we're best friends. I have enough best friends, why don't you love me?
Wait, I know, is it because I'm bald?
Maybe I stink.
Too dumb, too smart?
Maybe I swear too much.
Maybe I don't act my age, maybe I do.
I think I'm just too friendly. I never cry, but you know, whenever you talk about how good of friends we are, and how you don't know what you'd do without me, I want to.
You like my best friend. He's good looking, smart, funny. Hell, he's an awesome guy, I know. I love him like a fucking brother. But why can't you love me?
I hate sounding like the friend that always whines about something, seems like they never get anything their way. I love me. I don't have any plans to change me. I make me laugh. I bet I could sell my personality on ebay. I'm a tall, handsome guy, I
Destiny Gets the Best of MeDestiny Gets the Best of Me12 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My feet have carried me to many places,
My eyes watch all the passing faces,
Still my heart looks for a girl,
With compassion and grace,
For my arms to embrace,
Sadly enough, she continues to remain
So out of touch with my feelings, my perception becomes
I know she is out there,
Only in time, will I know where,
Believing in destiny,
Seems to get the best of me.

I wait. I prepare for an arrival that will never occur.
You said you'd be here, but you've said that before,
Only to leave me standing here, foolishly holding
My heart in my hands, broken and silent.
You ask. I give. You beg. I give. You insist
That I stand still, not moving to the left or right,
While you roam freely and openly, leaving me
To follow you, and close my heart once more.
If I could say to you what's on my mind, I'd tell you I love you.
I'd tell you I want you. I'd tell you of the hurt and anger that
Simmer under my skin, but I keep silent because I know the cost.
I know that no matter what is said or done, I am wrong, as always.
I wish I could climb a tree, to the very top until there
Was nothing but sky between me and the stars.
I'd stretch out my hands to touch them, feel their energy
Thrilling through me. But I can't even get to the top of the tree.
I stay behind, head down, because I love y
Utter Nonsense 1Sing a song of nonsense beneath a sunny paradiseUtter Nonsense 112 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A day so short and life so long yield ever blooming roses
So take away my pain, my love, and fill it with some more
The rain does come and wind does speak of
Petals dance with torment great, but kiss my cheek with love
Above the clouds the moon shines on
While the red waters swirl within
Surreal we dance, a lie and truth, making sense never a day
I speak in tongues, you hear me sing:
And scream, and moan, and cry
The eyes of cats peer through the night
Watching my trembling eyes
A diety sings and demon lusts, a ragdoll wears its threads
The colors fade and burn my lips
Yielding a tear of pink from out the sky…
Butterflies swoon among the bones that break
The fields of lies that smell so fresh
Deserving all we see and all we do
I run, you say, to you, away, out from
The heavens' earth
The mind does rot and color full, pretty as the setting dawn
Will you bite my neck and feed of my soul
Just give me back the "time."
