well, if I squint my eyes
like I used to
from the back of streetcars,
when I was three foot
Or like that show we watched
in my early summers
in your parent's bedroom
The season returns
and darling dahlias
And fragrant are
But you were
a paper rose
for an evening
I wonder where we
At times I think
it's a vain pursuit
stuff they sell
all over the place,
is out of stock.
Perhaps I'm wrong,
but you were right
Desserts are served
in the end
they're the best,
The veal, and venison
and lamb in vinegar,
are in the freezer
How quaint and sweet
it was to eat
my ice cream
on a wintry night.

It is the violent ocean in the dead of night.
It is the monster in the shadows; the Vashta Nerada.
It is the final crash of symbols in Carmina Burana.
It is impossible to lift.
it is impossible to breathe.
It is impossible to see.
It is the only thing that can be heard.
It is why the stars disappear at night.
It is why every light drifts by without stopping.
It is why the gnawing starts and never ceases.
It is why nothing else matters in the end.
It is my disease.
It is my disability.
It is my misfortune.
It is my death sentence.

Markers of the end
I can't live with
Yet one I've created
I break everything there is
These bonds between people
Shattered by my existence
All these last pieces of you
Are falling from my grasp
Like you before them
I can't keep hold
The last time I held you
Is burned into my mind
A reminder of who I had
A reminder of who I love
A reminder of who I've lost

I caress her pale skin,
That flakes with every kiss.
My hands on her butt.
My fingers clasp her outline.
Her company is expensive.
I am one of many who crave for her.
She has multiple partners.
I can smell her stench everywhere.
Our relationship must end eventually.
Her kiss will erode my heart.
Claiming lives is her fetish.
Everyone warns me not be with her.
But I lust for unreliable presence.
She has a bewildering hold of me.
My addiction always takes control of me.
Without her I cannot breathe.
But with her I will stop breathing.
That's why she cannot leave.
Because I will be the one that ends up leaving.

You have the audacity to call me a hypocrite.
When you can also be classed as a syndicate.
It's easy to judge someone objectively.
When it comes to it you choose what to forget selectively.
I'd be lying if I said I this situation has not affected me.
Too hasty to label and condemn others.
When you sleep keeping the truth under the covers.
In the morning the lies emerges and everyone suffers.
I'm left lieing in a bed of illusions thinking your friends are my brothers.
My actions offend you and I apologise.
When your actions offend me, you refuse responsibility and colonise.
My eyes have been exposed and this truth has left me traumatized.
This injustice is displayed regularly but no one ever gets penalised.
Now what was once assumed has now forced me to think twice.
Double standards have revealed their identity.
Confused me to the point where I'm no longer sure of things are meant to be.
This virus has spread worldwide and no one can be bothered to find the remedy.

I just can never seem to get it right.
How can she say that I am not her type?
After the constant phone calls and the facebook messages
And listening to you talk about all of your annoying relatives.
I thought that you and I could’ve been something.
I know now you think all guys are just after one thing.
Especially after the last guy and what he did to you
And I thought since I was the person you came running to.
That maybe, eventually there could be something between us
And you would believe me when I say I am not thinking of my penis.
When I say I long to hear your voice, even if it's only for a little while
And I love the way your delicate dimples develop whenever you smile.
I even love the way you chew your nails wildly whenever you’re nervous.
So when my suppressed feelings for you begin to pierce through the surface
And I confess all of the affection held captive in my chest.
You say that you love me but you can only see me as a best...

A timeless dragon's soul
somewhere inside a
scaled shell, burning
the silence in her bones

She collects fireflies only to
set them free at 3am,
crying to an uncaring moon.
& she's begging for the stars
to take her away,
make this house a home
rigged in the sky.
She is already naked fever
swimming through the cosmos

A Story To Tell introSome say there is no life after death. Some say there is a Heaven and a Hell. Well whatever there is, I didn't make it there. I'm stuck somewhere else, yet I'm stuck in life. Does that make sense? Haha, I suppose it doesn't, but it's the best way I can explain what has happened to me. Maybe I should start by telling you exactly what happened to me. Ah, the memory is still so clear. Like it was yesterday. Then again, I suppose a person will always remember their death like it was yesterday.

PainThe gaps between my fingersPain2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Were there for yours to fill -
All too late I realised:
Love is an intense uphill.
It leaves you out of breath,
Choking, gasping for air...
Your lungs don't get oxygen
You are drowning in despair.
Like a never-ending hailstorm
Or like penetrating rain,
Wearing you down to your core,
You're pummelled by the pain.
It breaks through your defences
And enters your guarded heart;
Just when you think you're okay,
Anguish rips your world apart.
You can't watch a romantic movie,
You can't listen to a love song
Because they remind you of life
Before everything went wrong.
Release is all you're craving
As your peace is completely faded;
You only wish (this one time)
It wasn't your heart that was traded.
You crave him, want him, need him,
You can't find him anywhere
And the tears just don't stop coming
And he doesn't seem to care.
You carry your broken heart with you
Through wind, sunshine and rain too;
Fake a smile, pretend it's okay,
That missing him's not killing you
Singing to Star-LightI had shed my wingsSinging to Star-Light2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
as war-cries in me,
hiccuped to the brink
I looked around here
as a star cried out -
and I saw stardust
tinged with doubt.
I had seen neglect
in the eye before,
but one that listened?
I see no more.
For there are none now,
willing to breathe
because they fell
to my balcony.
They fell and I lost
feeling in my hands,
they told me listen -
that the star that fell
is to cry and see
but only enough
to rain on me.
If she cries no more
says to you no less,
tell her that we miss
her light star-caress.
Tell her that the sky
beckons to her only.
Just sing, Hey sunshine
won't you smile for me?

Swelling as a great tide in my chest,
Pouring, rushing through me
Tumbling from my mouth in golden sound,
A song, a purest epiphany to the human mind.
Soaring as a great bird of prey,
Wind lifting my wings only to disappear from me again;
A magestic rollar coaster- exhilaration;
Twisting and jumping like a pup new to the world,
I rejoice in the joy that has grown within
Fed by the depths of our love.

You release what is hiding inside of me.
And when my feet are waltzing with each other, I imagine the other half of their dance, the parts that would fill in their missing steps.
Maybe you could show me someday.
But I suppose, the thing that bothers me the most, is reaching out for myself in the mirror, and gazing straight into the writer's heart.
Is that what you see, when you look at me too?

A white mess of confetti strewn all over the floor.
I pretend to believe it's snow.
So very cold.
I lead you down the winding halls.
To my being which has become numb.
Heavy weights drag me down.
To the bottom of this pit.
Tick, tick, tick.
The clock ticks slowly.
My pencil against my desk.
Whittling my soul away. Slowly.
Tap, tap, tap.
Anxiously, no, fearfully tapping.
The tapping turns to loud banging.
My head goes down.
The banging becomes ever louder.
I stare at the floor close to tears.
I'm faintly aware of some asking if I'm "okay".
I force a smile on my face.
Watch them turn away.
The smiles fades.
The banging ensues.
Flashes of white.
The snow is falling.
I turn my head.
Someone bumps my shoulder.
Pretend to laugh and smile.
The ramblings of the picture on the wall.
It won't be quiet.
Breathe in slowly, hold it.
Then let go.
I sit still pretending to be okay.

with puffs for hair.
She tells me she isn't

Her moonstone fingers
are braiding hopes and love
into the strands of her

of how the sun seems to
shine a little yellower

She becomes something
exceptional, a garden
filled with starlight and
teacups. She will remind you
the sun is also a star and
that we often overlook
those closest to us.

giving shadows a new taste

carried like crystal shards

prizing inconsequential matter

Show me what I've come here for.
I've placed you in a golden frame,
For another sexual gain.
Mirror mirror melts my mind
For all I see make me blind.
These eyes like concrete vanity,
Open your personality.
Eyes green and yellow shine,
Everyday I'll make them mine.
This is love and love of you,
This mirror is built for two.
Mirror mirror change your view,
I'm not just worried bout you,
I'm not taking care of myself,
As long as you're in good health.
I don't sleep, I only weep,
For you in my mirror, creep.
Kiss the glass and call my name,
I'll take it down just the same.
I've done what is done and I don't regret it,
I loved to help you and don't forget it.
You and I are not meant to be.
This mirror has set me free.
