The day was humid, the sun was still high
While I waited for the gray mini van
Hundreds of colorful cars sped right on by
Finally they came; one red and one with tan
Both were hyper and fuzzy, a boy and a girl
With light brown eyes and noses of dark pink
The red stayed, while up his sister did curl
On a blanket alone; both small as mink
My puppy was brave and showed not his fear
For he whimpered only once before he slept
Agile was he, like all kinds of brother deer;
Only loving and he was never unkempt
Guarding me from things that were proved harmful,
Always there, my dear beloved dog Carmal

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.

when i first cut,
i didnt think it would be addictive.
i didnt know i would love the pain so much.
i didnt know.
i swear, i didnt.
i also didnt realize how strong i was.
i didnt think i could get this far without it.
i didnt think i could get to 45 days.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

i cut to feel the the pain welling,

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

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

To escape the heat of this love.
The gray clouds and monochrome,
Make the whole place look far more solemn.
The sunlight casts a deepened shadow,
And the whispered twilight changes it's colour.
Ah, the whole world is starting to blur,
But even so, will I still stay in love with you?
I understand, but what can I do about it?
How can I cope..? What can I do ?
What a fool I have been
Let's go and we'll start this war,
This just cannot go on!
Just seeing you so happy with somebody else!
Earnest love, that is the truest sin!
Let me open up my heart and I'll tell you how I feel!
I tried shouting out to you,
But my megaphone was broken from our row.
I tried so hard to reach,
But attempt as I might, I failed to get into sight.
Ah, The clear sky slid over our heads,
But I can tell, that it didn't suit very well at all.
I can't keep hold, of all of the dying feelings.
What can I do? How can I manage?
Crying? No I'm not Is

I won't be okay.
They push me to forget,
Knowing that I can't.
And I just die inside
Every time someone I love pushes me aside,
And everyday it just gets worse.
All the buildup of passed messes
Of friends and loves lost
Family not caring.
A person can only take so much of their life falling to pieces,
Before they feel like ripping everything else up.
And maybe this is cliche,
Or I'm too young,
But I lost the one I feel I was meant for.
That just adds to all the build up that I just can't take anymore.
I'm running on empty,
I feel so cold.
I no longer know what to do,
Or know what's up or down.
I need so much help,
But I don't know how to ask.
The Doctors Could Be Patientsdark dankness descendsThe Doctors Could Be Patients3 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

we laughed and then cried,
then buried our pain
down in dark tide.
You were my air
and I was your wine,
while the drugged stars danced
over night sky...
Your clever fingers
dug through my scars,
and I stitched your wounds
with the touch of mine.
Lips mixing in tastes
of wormwood and wild thyme
ripped hearts, souls torn,
in bodies of quicklime.
you of blood and fire.
me of blood and moonlight...
And then the dawn killed the night
and we lost our fight...
Light scorched our bones
and we danced no more.
