Blood LoversBlood Lovers
Cannot be resisted,
Shall be tasted:
I dart out my tongue.
Sweet, like honey
Bitter, like fresh ground coffee: I taste chocolate.
You're soft to the touch
With harsh forests of
Unshaven hairs planted along your chin and cheeks.
My hand some-how finds its way to your face
And tenderly strokes it,
Eliciting a feral growl deep in your throat.
With my body held against yours,
Just like this,
Our two hearts beat side-by-side,
They beat as one: nothing else matters.
Nothing but our shared heart.
I gave you my being,
And you gave me a ring.
My gift was better,
But who'll know?

and throw away old priorities.
Lets replay all the old lullabies.
Even if only save goodbyes.
Do you remember all the late nights?
Before our disputes and all of our fights?
The way you held me in the cold.
Or the way you promised 'till we are old'.
Do you have the trinkets I sorely left.
Hear our laughs that now fallen deaf.
Find our pictures in old worn boxes?
That lay so hidden like wary foxes.
Lets try again through hopeful wishes.
we hold back tears, more broken dishes.
We see the mess we created.
Our once happy bubble, now deflated.
The bags all packed and tied so tight.
Our home so warm now cold at night.
We'll soon leave so don't be mad.
The silence killed the 'love' we had.
How did we come to fall so far.
Our broken hearts kept in a jar.
A love we once thought was so true.
Leave broken memories of me and you.

Hands behind his head.

Just a MirrorI feel your fear,Just a Mirror2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It oozes form your body,
I want to destroy you,
You make me sick,
You're ugly I shout,
A lonely nobody,
No-one will ever love you,
Go kill yourself I say,
You just mimic me,
So anger takes over me,
I thrust my fists at you,
And I finally realise,
It's just a mirror.

Masked behind stories and broken old dreams.
Ignorance is only bliss to those who dont know
Leaving me to bleed and suffer in this woe.
Engaged in this play that we all assume.
Safe in a fantasy till we are consumed.

sends my body into shivers,
like an early morning fog on the water
you float above my skin,
but there's tension in the air,
waiting for the sun to break,
to spill a fresh, golden milk
upon our aching joints,
upon your tender salmon lips,
ripe for the plucking,
maybe I'll carve coyotes into your calves,
paint rabbits on the underside of your tongue,
and sketch raccoon tails on your forearms,
then, finally, I will write empty, hollow words against
the pulsing walls of your chalkboard heart.

Adam, it's summertime-
Adam! Why are your hands so cold?
Why is it that you smell so bad,
Didn't you just bathe yesterday?
Flies swarm around you,
And the mosquitoes dive-bomb-
Are you so asleep that you cannot feel it?
Come, let's play a game together,
Wake up, please
Adam, quit playing possum!
You aren't going to wake, are you?
I guess you aren't playing after all

intense, steady and slow.
And only when the dawn rises,
shall we flicker into a satiated sleep.
Then, as our smoldering forms come to rest,
we will mold together throughout the days glow.
But for now, my ardent lover,
let us melt in this most splendid of heat...

i cut to feel the the pain welling,
up inside my head,
i cut for a release,
so i can feel happy and at peace,
i cut to feel in control,
to clear my body, mind and soul,
i cut the words people call me,
as a reminder of the pain

and he kisses them away lovingly;
she flinches warily from his touch.
He takes her chin between his fingers,
turning her face up to his own.
Don't look at me.
Her beautiful blue eyes swim.
He is confused.
Why not, darling?
A sob wracks her body,
along with a fresh wave of tears.
His eyes fill with loving concern.
You're not ugly.
He leans closer -
a soft gasp escapes her -
their faces inches apart.
You're beautiful, baby.
He kisses her soft lips,
and for the first time in her life
she feels utterly beautiful.

can go a long way
So I waited
for you to say
what was going on
in that pretty little mind
you pushed me off
and you wasted my time
All those things I said
all the words in my head
all the love that I gave to you
its clear what it all meant to you
I simply loved you more
I crossed my heart and I swore
that someday I would make you happy
but the promise is broken
heart and soul have been stolen
I can't ever get them back because
I loved you more.
I tried building
bridges over all of the walls
I tried mending and healing
all of the burning scars
But you didn't want me at all
What was going on
in that beautiful head?
Did you think I was done,
over, and gone?
did you realize my soul was dead?
All those actions in my head
all those words left unsaid
all I wanted was to give the world to you
But its clear now what I meant to you
I simply loved you more
and you walked out of the door
I only wanted you to smile
all the promises gone
all you ever did to m

sometimes it's the saddest word to say
and it's sad to walk away
with just the memories
but i stride
with petals falling from my hands
and leaves crunching in the light
promising my freedom
let it slide
was the hardest thing to do,yes
but history changed itself
when i made those choices
oozes from the cracked skin
and my innocent body...
but you were satisfied
you look fine
as you smile from day to day
but does he even know
the things you hide?
are you happy?
i hope you finally rest
and have some harmless fun
learn to be kind
let me out of your mind
unclasp your hand from around me
and let yourself live

Not a shell with a pretty face
peeling to reveal
A lonesome shadow
lingering behind me.
Warm BloodWarm blood fallsWarm Blood2 years ago in Haiku & Eastern More Like This
in red rivulets,
Weeping from five wounds
to form lovely quintets,
Warm blood oozes from
holes in hues of black,
Leaking from pores,
And descending in
streams down the back,
Warm blood departs
from the veins,
That are fueled by the heart,
A strong man accepts that
the essence of his life
is soon to depart,
Clutching his sword
whilst watching the red,
The absence of warm blood
soon left him dead...

The Doctors Could Be Patientsdark dankness descendsThe Doctors Could Be Patients2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
eerie moans float over head
piercing shrieks echo
across pale white walls
from hidden pains
blood falls and drips
we whisper quietly from parched lips
and watch silently with shifting eyes
trying to follow
called passing time
within denial no one
whishes to seek the truth
underneath all the careful lies
this place, this prison
demons hide behind bright beauty
look upon the inside
past their bright smiles
see our rotting flesh and dreams
festering wounds cracked
these doctors parade around
wielding their vicious needles
as if they, demonic breed,
were glorious white knights
using their gleaming swords
to defend their
oh, so innocent brethren
from us; the enemy
while we sit strapped in corners
with melodic voices
floating in one ear, out the other
our eyes bulge with fear
from the wicked sounds only we
Frights only we can behold
hold; we're always alone
once you're placed in your jacket

the work of the devil,
I never knew love,
could cost me forever.
It's not my fault,
I didn't ask for this,
I didn't ask to get caught,
caught up in her kiss.
It's not just a faze,
I've always felt this,
the need not for a prince,
but for a princess.
But you say it's impossible,
for me to feel this way,
I have to fight it, I have to battle.
But why is it that you; mom and dad,
your love is seen as pure,
but as for mine, it's seen as a sin,
just because it's with a girl.
You always taught me not to judge,
so why are you being so judgmental,
you sin too, you have your faults,
so why am I the one on trial?
God wont leave me because I love,
He knows it's not my fault,
so mom and dad do as you wish,
I'll love her if I want.

burning vividly my skin.
Your devilish hands and tongue
covering my whole being with sin.
In vain, I attempt some resistance...
How can your touch be so profane?
I surrender to your treacheries, and
like a prayer, repeat your name.
There's no longer any purity in me,
and corruption becomes my elation,
Still, every time we're close like this
is when I really believe in salvation.
