Lost in your loveI won't let you see me crying
I won't let you see me dying
Nothing changed we are still the same
You know nothing except my name
The river is flowing and rain is falling
The sun is setting and I'm still drowning
But I won't let you see me crying
I won't let you see me smiling
Times are changing life is going
Rain is falling and I'm still drowning
No one's here, no one but me
I've cried all night so you wouldn't see
I died tonight and return as a ghost
To let you see what you have lost
You never saw me crying
You never saw me dying
You never saw me even smiling
You didn't see me at all
How I let myself fall in love

Cry out loud
Tears are falling
They're falling down
I deserve these tears
At least you're here
I made mistakes, I'm proud of them
I'm proud of being here
I was here
Somewhere on the Earth I lived
I had faith
And I failed
Cry for me
It's the least you can do
Smile for me
Forget about truth
Be in this moment with me
Forget about the world, forget about life
We're running out of time
So cry for me
Cry out loud
I'm Still HereI am screaming again andI'm Still Here2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Throwing my fists into my mattress.
I am laying here trying so hard
To be something more than this.
My sheets are crumpled from
Being horribly wide awake
And restlessly unconscious,
But they still smell like you.
And it is achingly cruel.
I don't believe I will die,
But I do believe in reckless behavior
Because as hard as I try I
Will never be good enough for you.
My hands don't fit in yours
But I keep trying to force them to.
And I know you will let me
Because I am weak and I
Will undress when you ask me to,
But I really hope you don't.
I am screaming again and
It shakes my bones.
I scream until my voice breaks
And there is nothing left.
I am hollow.
I am empty.
I am too far gone.

An awkward moment.
Bodies perspire exponentially
Her lips are potent.
I could love her potentially,
Eye contact initiated
Our hands connected
Each others company appreciated
Minds fully erected

Arms around her waist
This was meant to be
There is no time to waste.
Her hands run down my spine,
The first of many to come
An instance of sublime gratification
I have no choice but to succumb
To her enthralling sophistication.

Love; why do people fall in it when it only causes pain and heartache?. Is it because they open there hearts and mind to it and therefore allow themselves to be seduced by it? Or is it accidental, some sort of uncontrollable force that draws you in? Love can be felt by everyone and anyone therefore everyone must experience bitterness and suffering in turn. What's worst is that there is no set and confirmed definition of love or its traits making it impossible to tell whether you're in it or not. Apparently, you just know. That has got to be the laziest and useless answer possible you just feel it, you just know when you're under its mysterious spell like qualities. I wish it never existed. People say it's the single most fulfilling feeling ever to have experienced. I agree to a certain extent except there is one underlying question: why doesn't the feeling last? Why is it that love and all its advantages and positives are only temporary? Why have things and situations got t

She is brilliant, they say,

Numbers are her companion,

Words can twist her brain,
she loves the wonder they bring.
She is intelligent, they say,

Sometimes she feels clever too much.
Excusez-moi, in perfect French,

She is clever, they say.
But she is not clever the way they know.
She sees things as they are,

She knows she loves them more than they in return,
and her friends will be there until they wont.
Friends reassure her, you'll be okay,

She loves them as much as any,

They bring out the best in her,

The one who isn't drowning in formula.

through a crystal screen,
eyes set in a yearning gaze.
And in the solemn hour
we relentlessly dream,
imagining that very day...
When we finally meet
in an authentic embrace,
finding each other's heart.
In the midst of a kiss
with a honeysuckle taste,
never wandering apart.
But until the time arrives
to break past the blue,
we'll continue to dream.
Forever pondering o'er
the presence of you
beyond the crystal screen.

X marks the spot
But what is on that spot?
X is something you once had
Is it right to go back?
X is usually a target
What happens if you miss it?
X's are used to end a message
But do they actually mean anything?
X is an indication you got it wrong the first time
Next time will you repeat this error?
X is an x for a reason
Can that reason change?
What does an x add to our everyday lives
Makes our Xistence Xtraordinary
So Y do X's effect us so greatly?
I cant Xplain
Algebra was never my strong point
All I know is anything multiplied by an X equals trouble
Sonnet IVOh conceded Lover I write to thee,Sonnet IV2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Though to thou in words I shall be no more.
What I lost in love, thou hast lost in me,
For I lost thine act, and thou, my adore.
While thou hast gained another's love, anon,
And cast away thine hollow yesterdays,
Mine love, sworn to the yonder morrows-- gone!--
Still looks thither with False Hope's hopeful gaze.
Alas! Albeit these incomplete dreams
I thank thee for its wondrous prelude,
Now my quill covets for other themes
Which upon thy coming grew accrued.
Had our love endured, I'd remove thy guise,
And thou, in my sonnet, immortalize.

As I lie in front of the granite casing
Canonized by the sight of the one I love
Longing for his tender touch, to be in his reach again
I often smell the distinctive scent of his uniform
Surround myself with his garments
But only when he's not around
When he's around I must appear to be strong and stable
The constant questions of innocence and ignorance are impossible to answer
But he doesn't understand and I hope he never will
Life must continue and progress
I must now be his granite casing
To shield him from the bitterness and harshness of reality
But who will protect and support me?
Who is there to caress and look after me?
Who do I lean on and run to?
The granite casing can only do so much
But yet here I lie against it still
Even after all this time
Hoping to find strength

Go with the moment
The moment you think about what your doing
The moment is lost
That moment could make your day
A revised cherished memory of that moment
Could make smile for a moment
Even if the moment doesn't go the way you intended
Be grateful for the moment even occurring
That particular moment could lead on to other things
The moment is what you make of it
We all have our good and bad moments
You can even pick the good moments out of the bad
In fact lets just take a moment
Just to think about all those moments
That has made us who we are today
Because of that moment I met the one I love
Because of that moment I got that promotion
Because of that moment I realised how much my family mean to me
Because of that moment I learnt never to cheat again
Because of that moment I am alive today

She didn't notice, though, because she was tuned into every noise beneath them: Radios, cars, buses, bikes, steam lines, subways, fans, air-conditioners, televisions, power transformers and a high-up plane were lapping up her consciousness and weaving a lovely blanket of humanity where she could stay warm.
Cold was his distance on the aging roof. She realized a long time ago that his love had fallen for an idea, and that she fit that idea in form only. The short, dark-haired girl with glasses motif was one she wore well. He lived on that ideal: every evening of their lives together he would heat up that film-covered, plastic tray with the neatly organized concepts of her in the microwave of his mind and enjoy it bit by compartmentalized bit.

I mean she's infuriating. She doesn't talk to anyone but that guy who lives one door down from her. And if they talk to her she just goes red and averts her eyes. Antisocial right?
And she's a bloody genius! She's always getting the highest marks on tests and she never seems to actually care. She's got a pretty happy family too, good car and house. Some people just have it all.
I did hear she's no good at sports though.
Anyway, she drives me crazy.
We like the same sort of books and music I learnt. And she's pretty easy to work with. Like I said before talking to her is hard but once you get going you realise that actually she's pretty witty. She had me in stitches that time we had to do a project together.
It really gets on my nerves you know, the way she hides behind her hair. I mean its not that she's my type or anything, but I like her eyes. They shine somehow and always look as though she's

Arguments arise from nothing.
Sinister facial expressions appear,
Bodies stiffen in to a recluse.
Tears cascade in rage,
The point is lost.
Yet the debacle proceeds
Fingers steer accusingly,
Vocal volumes increase.
Forgetting why it all started.
Using past events to support
Stupid and suspicious claims.
Followed be the stomping of hoofs
Intensity inhabits the vicinity.
Neither party wants to give in
Inner thoughts revealed to the outer world.
Covert remarks announced,
Tempers increase expeditiously.
Underneath they long for each other
But this cannot be displayed.
Neither of them want to show weakness,
The stand off continues.
Now they've forgotten why the argument occurred.
The whole purpose has been obscured.
This could have easily been deterred.
Love and understanding would've have been preferred.
The likeliness of this outcome would be absurd.

The location no map can pin-point,
The blind region of the universe.
Living turns in to existing,
Existing mutates in to subsisting.
Emotions have no place here.
The body is in a cadaverous state,
The heart thinks but the mind aches.
The mouth has been moulded to deceive.
The eyes are impervious to lies.
This is the place where true honesty lies
Know one can surmise how you feel,
Those who once cared have dematerialized.
You can only re-lie on yourself,
False deceptions allow us to proceed.
Realise the real lies we tell ourselves
Allow us to proceed

And all I can do is sigh
It leaves the world in peace
So why can't we leave the world in peace?
Don't just leave a better world for the humans
But for the other forms of life as well

Sleep is the only form of escapism,
When I awake its back to reality.
Sitting at the side of bed gazing in to a mirror.
A hairy short being stares back at me,
His hands on a keyboard typing some sort of nonsense.
Movement can be seen in the background,
A foot emerges from underneath the covers.
Her angelic frame graces my bed.
She arises randomly to kiss me and returns to her slumber.
My mind is a beehive of thoughts,
Failing is becoming an customary feeling.
Yet her kiss seems to distract me,
For a while
But I've been here before.
This time is different.
It has to be,
A broken heart is like lightning.
It never strikes twice.
The time reads 11:11,
There is work I should be completing.
But my mind is astronomically vacant,
The keys are in the ignition
But no one is driving.

He took photographs
as if he were loving
with a broken heart—
Careful set up—
The lighting soft
To smooth the harsh shadows
The colors just right
Sighing against the eye
The model all wrong,
Yet interminably perfect.
He took photographs
as if he were taking a life
Or in the way you fall asleep
or fall in love—
“Slowly, then all at once.”
When he took my photograph,
he also took my breath
and the beat my heart skipped.

I never cared, the cuts would heal, broken bones would mend.
But every time it happened, there was a voice, whispering.
Kill them, you know you can, unleash your anger, give in.
That's the worst thing for me, about being bullied.
Not the pain, not the humiliation, but being restrained.
If I could unleash it all, I'd feel so much better...
Go on, unleash yourself, make yourself feel better!
No! I can't, and I honestly don't want to.
It's too much hassle after, being hated for what I do.
