I close my eyes
in darkness deep,
awaiting the embrace of sleep.
my last escape
from a world of lies
and foes wearing a friend's disguise.
and as I fall into sleep's hands,
submit myself to her commands,
does she let my mind fall still
and empties it, for dreams to fill.

first promises, first dreams.
it was a dream in summer.
"let's ride this one next!" letter grabbed char and pulled her along.
They enjoyed the ride,
but for emotions felt, not reasons thought.
days pass by. so do phone calls.
char is nervous.
"But I still have one more question on my mind "
letter laughs. "Yes, yes, of course."
it was their song:
char was the worm,
letter the bird.
and it was plain to see:
we were meant to be.
weeks, months go by. so do kisses and flying
char really believed.
(we all have to some day.
but nothing lasts forever.)
"What the hell are you doing?" words cut like knives.
in the mall: letters kiss one another.
"is letter more than you bargained for yet?" the other woman asks.
"Char, I just couldn't bear to part with you," letter says.
really, char retorts. but you could bear to break dreams.
this is how a heart breaks.
Lust and Liesyou meet someone new and you start to hang out,Lust and Lies3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
before you know it you are dating and taking them out.
they are new to you and exciting they seem,
you spend time together and it's all like a dream.
you are curious and want to know everything about them,
you want their everything, whether it's her or it's him.
whether you're male or female; beautiful or not,
they get your hormones raging, all bothered and hot.
you think it is serious, you think it is love,
like a magical gift that came from above.
one night you are trapped in their spell; it is almost like you have been hexed
they want to have fun, "come on baby, it's just a little sex."
at first you don't believe the fact that it was all just lies and deceit,
shortly after all that you have left is just a receipt.
for some the cost is small; just a shattered heart and a lot of strife
for others they are left to take care of another newborn life.
Why is it like this? Why must we lie? All of this heartache and you just want to die.

You don't want to show it to anyone... You bring the razor along.
Its all that you feel you can do, its what you deserve right?
Look I'm here to tell you,
nothing in this world is your fault.
No matter the path you choose, it will always lead to the same one in the end.
Those wounds in your heart, they will heal, and become scars.
They will become so much easier to hide.
The one who tapes and stitches your heart, that is whom it should beat for.
There is no need to hurt yourself this way, I'm right here.
You think that NOBODY will notice when you cry yourself to sleep?
You feel like you are on the outside of the glass, looking in... Wishing this wasn't your life.
I know that you can't save yourself, that is why I'm right here, just reach for my hand.
I know a place where you can go,
It's a room... Full of second chances.

pin me to the wall
(he tells me i'm a work of art,
but after all this time, i'm still just a girl)
too young, too young, the walls whisper
too late, too late, i sob
because this battered body,
this girl with the scarlet tattoos, she is too tired to escape
and her wings won't work in the rain.
and as i suck in air, i wonder, how many more will have to endure
the pain of not being their own
i have heard too many screams, all at once
(God who i stopped believing in,
if you can hear me,
let this end, so that when i am walking in the streets
with my child, i can swear,
that she will never
have scars on her back,
she will never
have welts on her heart)
Her words consumed herHer words consumed her3 months ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
She was screaming
but her words consumed her cry
enticing me with their beauty
till I forgot their meaning.
She fell so completely
so wonderfully in love
with the ideal of her own insanity
that the wings
which I had nailed into her spine
were held closed
by her blood stained hands
as she fell
so far beyond my reach
however never far enough
that I couldn't hear
the lovely limericks
and seductive sonnets
hail down upon me in hoarse screams,
their beauty forcing me to my knees
and their truth, of the pain
which you romanticized into glorious
plays of shadowed fingers
narrated by tutored pleas
for someone,for anyone,
slowly crushing my heart.

Weakened by the pain of years.
I always search but cannot find
The source of all my bitter tears.
I see a light, an anchor, a hope;
I limp faster, relieved by the sight.
I found a gentle, downward slope
Like a rescue from a blight.
I lean on you, no longer afraid;
Finally I have found relief.
Tears dry, memories fade,
Like wind carries a wilted leaf.
But in the end, it wasn't true
You held my heart yet let it die.
My anchor became my noose;
My trust was blinded to your lie.
How could I be so ignorant?
You pledged to never leave my side.
There's none to blame but myself
"She believed when he lied."

Letting Go of YouLetting Go of You:Letting Go of You2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You abandoned me in the past
without so much as a proper goodbye
One day you simply chose to walk out the door
and you never did come back...
I was angry then, hurting badly
I wondered if I was in some way inadequate
I wondered if you left because I am so easy to despise
and eventually my sorrow turned to anger
I wanted to become great
to show you that you made the wrong choice
to take my strength and throw it in your face
just so you would regret it
But then I saw how happy you were...
In the time we've been apart
You've made a new life for yourself
You've found someone who loves and treasures you
and upon seeing that, my anger faded...
Your smile, that which I fell in love with
is more radiant now than the morning sun
a gentle blush upon your fair cheeks
takes my breath away, just as it did so long ago
Of course, I don't hold any hope for us to be friends
I don't think that it would be appropriate for me to come back
but perhaps one day, if

Mi corazón a dos mil por hora, un ya gastado corazón de tierra, y la felicidad que intento desesperadamente esconder.
No es bello lo que es bello, sino que es bello lo que nos gusta, mi proverbio preferido, y la lección de vida que aprendí cuando te miré.
Tiene la belleza de una playa abandonada, con un mar salvaje con sus límites lejanos. El pelo, como las olas espumeantes, enmarca su rostro, lo cubre a ratos, y rebelde con el viento lo deja escapar. Como si nadie la mirara… ¿Acaso no se da cuenta la diosa que es?
Pero yo te vi… ¡Maldita hora en que te vi! Dejaste una herida en mi alma que te adora; es como si algo se hubiera roto, un dique, una barrera que ha liberado ese río de lágrimas y sollozos.
Un horrible sufrimiento me devora, permanece allí respirando mi calor, escuchando el corazón, sintiendo la piel

Hey, being around you is driving me nuts,
You never want to do anything, you don't even care,
Why bother even breathing if you're going to act like you're dead!
