The only lips I can taste are yours
Only your hands touch my skin
Only your scent lingers
So I hope you don't mind
If I keep you with me
Just a little while longer
At least until that scent fades.

sweet thing -
i caught you
with your hair down low
like a songbird
and your skirt up,
lifted heaven scent,
calling us home.
didn't i warn you
and funny cigarettes
how your days and legs
would just disappear
and the couch
would swallow us whole?
just be sure
to marry a good boy,
one handsome as a cliff
with a cleft chin
who will come home
on the bus
with dinner in a bag
and fill you up with babies -
little pink testaments
to you and me.
SolitudeLeave him to his solitudeSolitude5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
where the light bulb lurches
over the bed
making love to the dark
huddled against the ceiling
and the blankets all are beaten
like wayward apologies.
Let the clock by his pillow
break the sad news
and tally the lies
of her comings
and their coupling
under the canopy
of weightless flesh
where love once disturbed their sleep
and her arms still ached enough
to break their fall.
For midnight will catch the floor
like it always does
the upwelling of her words
left bristling in the carpet
and send him spilling
in the dark
like blistered silk
setting sadly into the dawn -
just another memory
found missing in the morning.
DarknessSomeone once told me:Darkness4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
"turn on a light"
Chase away the darkness with the bright
But here's a question for you
What do you do when the darkness is the only thing that feels right.

Head on canvas.
This is life in a cardboard box
When it starts to rain
And the walls collapse.
Snowy NightSnowflakes crossed the pitch black skySnowy Night4 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Milky streetlight poured down the block
Footsteps muffled in howling cry
Of the bell announcing twelve o'clock
Blurred view was frozen, white
As the breath before our eyes
For a moment the time had stopped
The clock flashed midnight twice
My frosty fingers reached by yours
The world grew silent within us
Suddenly my eyes met yours
And the seconds failed to pass
Warmth I felt from out of nowhere
From my hands to heart it streamed
As you lent slightly lower
Pried into my eyes and grinned
Howling bell sobbed louder
In that gloomy, wintry scene
For the midnight never longer
Yet too brief, or so it seemed
The Ugly Duckling Just Call Me the Ugly Duckling Because I'm Nothing Like YouThe Ugly Duckling4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Irrationally you place your words
Your crooked lines are softly blurred
And as I hear your views fall apart,
Your logic, a piece of abstract art,
I know it's a waste to release a sound
An open ear could never be found
By any thought that leaves my lips
They'll sail as well as mast-less ships
For if I said the world were round
You'd disagree like a bloodthirsty hound
And if I said to open your mind,
You'd claim that you don't have the patience or time
It's not that I ever expect you to improve
But ignorance is all you push and approve

With inky lips

she speaks her mind.
She's made of content not

Like that one book
the Classics on the
top shelf of a used
The one with the yellowed
That has been read
a few too many times.

They'd been heading towards this inevitable for a long time now.
It was a long time coming and nearing overdue.
"Why are we still together? What is the point of there being an us?" she whispered. She sat next to him, near but not touching, her long hair brushing his bare arm just barely. The golden waves created a screen that kept him from seeing her face as she bent her head forward.
He wanted to reach out and comfort her, but he knew that his touch mean nothing to her anymore. He didn't even know if she'd accept it. "Because..." he trailed off.
There was no reason.
There was nothing in this pathetic shell of a relationship for either of them.
"Exactly." She stood up, and finally her hair fell back. Only then did he see the tears glistening on her cheeks, falling from her heavy-lidded blue eyes. "Tha
Blank BeautyHidden deep beneath your shieldBlank Beauty4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your beauty hides,
Waiting to yield.
But you hide, beneath the shield.
You never delve into your heart
And put your life,
In the starring part.
Because you hid, your heart kept safe.
But if only you could see
Just how beautiful,
You can be.
And still you hide, hidden from my sight.
Your life would change and your shell would break
And all the world,
Would begin to shake.
And so hide, inside your safe shell.
Like a butterfly emerging strong
Your beauty will surely,
Do you no wrong.
And yet, you still hide, in your perfectly blank state.

Maybe this pain
Will set me free.
Perhaps this love
Wasn't meant to be.
I know it's my fault
Who other than me?
Keep going harder
Its just what I need.
I know this pain,
Will set me free.
You hate yourself,
So why not me?
Friends and Family,
No more can I see.
Damn this stings,
With every dripping bead.
Not much longer,
This knife shall do it's deed.

Only to find that it was impossible to try.
Today I decided I was going to soar,

Today I decided I was going to speak my mind,
Only to find that it wasnt for which i signed.
Today I decided I was going out to sea,
Only to find that it's not what I thought it would be.
Today I decided I was going to be brave,
Only to find that I was a coward in her cave.
Today I decided I was going to cry,
Only to find that my eyes were bone dry.
Today I decided I was going to ignore my callin',
Only to find that my lips were frozen solid.
Tonight I decided I was going to stop,
And soon I will find that that's not good enough.
Tomorrow I will decide to leave well enough alone,
Only to find that what I wanted was far-blown.

I know I said things that I didn't mean
But you should've known me by now
You should've known me
If you believed, when I said
I'd be better off without you
Then you never really knew me at all
If you believed, when I said
That I wouldn't be thinking about you
You thought you knew the truth- but
You're all that I need
Just tell me that you still believe...
Love is hard, love is rough
I know that this silence isn't what we need
But you should have known that by now....
If you believed, when I said
I'll be okay to wait around here forever
I'm sorry to tell you, your wrong.
You're all that I have

My Not-So-Secret LieHave you been seeing the signs?My Not-So-Secret Lie4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Noticed things I've been trying to hide?
Will this be unexpected?
Or have you already suspected?
Will you be upset?
And then give me a threat
Or will you understand
And reassure me this is God's plan?
Please don't be scared
Understand that my heart still cares
Know that I'm not strange
And that this isn't just a phase
I'm trying to tell you my secret
You have no idea how hard it's been to keep it
I don't want to be rejected
Nor do I want to be neglected
Will you say you have unconditional Love?
Tell me every things ok and give me a hug?
Or will you just scream?
And disapprove of me?
Will you think that this was a choice?
Or will you open your ears and hear my heart's voice?
Will you be a helping hand?
And realize this who I am?
Now that you know
Will your love change?
Will it grow?
Or go down the drain?
Please know that I'm sorry
I didn't mean to lie
It's not the easiest task
Telling someone, you're Bi.
BeholderBeauty is in the eye of the beholder.Beholder4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But who is beholding this beauty?
It could be anyone,
Anyone can behold beauty.
But what if the beholder,
Doesn't want to behold your beauty?
Then, who will behold your beauty?
Then who beholds the beholders beauty?
I never really under stood that statement.
Is there really a beholder that will behold your beauty?
Or is it all a myth?
What if you don't find the beholders beauty beautiful?
You end up with a broken heart and another beholder
Beholding someone else's beauty.
As for me.
Who beholds my beauty?
Who do I behold?
There might be a long chain of beholders...
But I am not one of them.
I behold my own beauty.
I don't care what others think.
I could be beautiful, ugly,
Pretty, or a monster,
A demon or an angle,
Sweet, or stone-cold sour,
Adorable, or morbidly hideous.
It doesn't matter to me.
Because you don't behold my beauty.
No one does,
Killing MeMy silenceKilling Me4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's killing me.
My mouth has been sealed with silver-lined string,
To remain silent it what is asked of me.
So I obey her plea...
It's killing me.
My body is being held captive by arms of security's bliss,
In their grasp I must stay safe in it's sound-ness.
So I obey her wish...
It's killing me.
My eyes are strapped open by paper-thin needles,
I cannot miss a second of these details.
So I obey her tales.
It's killing me.
My heart is being pulled by one person's two fists,
Grabbing a hold of me and tightening without dismiss.
So I obey her list.
Myself and I
I'm killing me.
My body is aching and crying and I cannot help it,
For I am helplessly in love-
(My mouth has been silenced)
-and there is no way out.

ContemplationsLove is so easy,Contemplations4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Love is so hard.
I remember every moment that I am alone,
I remember every moment you leave me alone.
With you, in the companionship of silence.
With you, in this kept-quiet relationship.
What do you think, where will I go now?
Where do you think I will go when you leave?
Staring into the blue ocean of your eyes.
Staring into your eyes as if they'd ever answer me.
Love is so short,
Love is so long.
I remember every inch of you in my dreams,
I remember you for every time you forget me.
Without you in my empty room tonight,
Without you to fill my confidence.
What do I dream, where do I go now?
What do I dream of without you here?
Staring at three ceilings across two oceans.
Staring at my the ceilings of you, me and us.
Love is so full,
Love is so empty.
I remember your every electric touch,
I remember every time you brushed by.
Without you my world could not turn.
Without you I would
Everything and NothingI'm titling a poem before it's writtenEverything and Nothing4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Everything and Nothing, I'll call it.
It'll be everything
And touch everything
And see everything
And taste everything
And know nothing.
It will sigh and laugh and smile
And feel nothing.
It will wish and hope and dream
And get nothing.
It will be everything I am
And everything I think
And everything I know
And it will be nothing.
This poem will ramble and meander and traipse
And come to nothing.
When I write everything
It sounds like nothing.
So instead I've decided to take a chance
And just write

What's on my mind?
That's the question I am asked.
Everytime I log in-
It asks me to remove what I've masked.
My feelings I keep in,
The thoughts I block out.
Everything that pops to mind,
When those words pop about.
If I wanted to tell the world,
What was really and honestly always on my mind-
I would set a status on my own.
I dont need you here, Facebook, to help me search and find.
So what's on my mind?
A fucking LOT.
