Am being taught to hate myself like a
distance between love and war and thyself
Uselessness in an empty shell, open
disregarded, all the warning signs
If I can't become me, who is
Like little butterflies through the desert we
Starve on wrong, wrong, being told we are
and the mystery continues to
manifest itself through colourless prisms
white light, hanging, heart's
suffocation and emptiness to the rain forest
By and by we suffer
but you don't know that,
or is it
me? Me? Am I
supposed to know, or is this all
never to make sense, only to
never-endingly continue in silence and I am
lying to you, I am not alright, can you save
I will not stand, the hatred will bend me
and burrow into the uselessness
for you to a love, love
and war dies in a heart broken before it
it was made.

monday afternoon and
my lover is studying;
i am wondering if he remembers that time when
we learnt together the geometric shapes -
circled are his lips when
the sun draws himself upon them;
i am jealous.
earth has his own anatomy -
them science people called him "pear";
maybe the fruit was before the planet
or maybe the planet grew out of it,
which makes us pearestrials, but
i wouldn't know;
i don't do science.
i don't even do words -
words are too academic sometimes;
it's propestorous (exclamation mark)
and my fingers are only made to waltz with yours;
i'm sorry when i stumble,
you know my forefinger is high heel sensitive;
there's too many is in the world.

i have fallen in love
with the strangest of things-

the love letters

pressed against limbs.
i make promises
i know i can not keep.
but if i were a liar
i would say i was tired

te echo de menos. Una infinidad.
Y me he acordao' de cuando esas canciones,
sí, las de los Clash. Joder, qué tiempos.
Y las tardes de domingo en el parque
bebiendo cervezas y fumando porros sin parar.
No sé, el caso es que me duele. No hablarnos.
Tus ojitos calibre .38.
Y tus manos pasando las hojas de un Bukowski,
mientras tu voz hurgándome en lo muy yo,
y yo que me corría en silencio en tu pausar.
Quizá si pudieras perdonarme, me dolería menos.
Hablo de esta ausencia, de este vomitar antílopes cojos.
Quizá si pudiera perdonarme, el no amarte lo suficiente,
yo no estaría con estas ganas de...
Me falta tu polla, cariño.
¿Vienes y follamos y me matas por última vez?

straight through your heart
and catch the wind
slipping through your fingers
laughing at those stuck in the mud
too blind to see the vine they could pull themselves out with
This is the first valid break
through the chain that linked me to the past
and I feel so much lighter
like I could have a future untouched by blood
like I will
Refreshing, clear water
cool and sparkling
the wind rushing through my hair
touching something deep within me
until there is
a differentiation, a clarity all around me,
a recognised reality
and this illumination in my heart
unlocks a barrier, opens a door,
I step through and don't look back.
Because I threw the first shovelful of dirt on your grave.

mi vientre mutilado esparciendo su carne agria
como si yo me devorara lo ausente de las tripas.
Originariamente el hambre haciendo belleza
cada una de mis ciudades oscuras,
cicatrices destrozadas por el peso de una caricia
que llevaba un número plural de uñas
desde lo puro de un beso
hasta la ternura más blasfema,
pero yo me mecía enturbiada de daño por la rareza de un lenguaje
en hilada desnudez contra la nieve que,
me calentó los latidos que llevaba por hostias,
las tantas que me naufragaron hasta el hueso de una rotura.
sucumbí a la confianza de un desalojo
y no pude abrirme de piernas a un amor tan homicida.
You Play A Risky GameYou Play A Risky Game4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You play a risky game but there's a stake;
You will not know how much it hurts, until
You go farther than the body can take;
You cannot break the bond against your will.
You think it is fair game, but it is not.
You think it is alright, but you don't know.
It is not just a game, but we have fought.
So many times you've done it, that it shows.
I have seen many others do it too,
But we still stop in time to save your life.
You have to know what's pure and sweet and true.
You have to learn how to put down the knife.
All you need to do is pick up a pen,
We'll stop in time to save your life, again.

Are you alive Candy Man, is this the saccharine

I gulp down smoke in gluttonous gasps,

Meat glittering like rubies.
Lighter sparks lightning on glass, thunderous clouds
spiraling down esophagus, expanding
(the grasp of eggplant kisses through amethyst eyes)
Violet layers of air faucet the senses. Lungs inhale,
only to be encrusted in bruised oxygen.

Swirls of hue like memories
Taint the purity of the once white rose
Innocently prevailing a imagery
A image of the known
These rainbowish flurries of color
Paint a ignorant mindset once again
Covering over the corruption
With their technicolor ways
How my dreams fade
Dwelling beneath that rose of life
When they will ever bud again
I shall not be aware
A colorful life in a hand
That can be crushed by a simple grasp
Has a value of far more then such
Therefore resist the urge to touch
The technicolor rose of life.

Dances back and forth in between neuron transmittors.
Rapid fire thought, day-dream believer, hippie, lover.
She tastes the rain like good tea,
feels the rain like thunder in the vein.
Second-hand life, worn out couches, strife.
Two wrongs never did make a right &
bombs never did have sight
so she wandered out
& left her light on
but they couldn't follow,
the sky wasn't clear.
Your nights reign supreme
& your summer skies are black,
in my mind she sways
in my mind she's back
and that's the only place she'll stay

que toda su carne huele a violines mojados,
que le crujen los pulmones cada vez que lo respira,
y lo deja todo perdido de salpicaduras de un hambre antigua
muy hecha raíz por tanto que la padece,
—más que hambre es un pulso de fiebres
que tiene consigo misma—,
que va a lo sexo de un sexo con manos frías
y desde allí siente un escozor a relámpago hechizado,
y le arde la grieta por donde se dio a luz
sin cuerpo que le cubra todo ese fuego,
en un caer de heridas misteriosas,
en un lagrimeo por tanta minusvalía nocturna,
que a veces se recuerda con una soga en la vulva
en lo pensado de hombre,
y se tiembla, se tiembla hasta que vomita
crucifijos y laberintos,
que se abandona a su dolor de puta
ante tanta ojera desbordada,
cicatriz abismo, lo amoratado de insomnio
en el aborto de traumas magistrales
y caricias de pico curvo,
que sus tetas están cansadas de tanta hostia.
Why do I Love You?How can I say that I love someone?Why do I Love You?10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
What is the reason why I love you?
I realized the answer now that you are gone;
The basis why I feel that I miss you.
Before I met you I'm just a nobody;
I didn't know the purpose why I became me.
I didn't know the thing I should live for;
I'm so afraid to open my destiny's door.
Just then you came to my life;
You fixed everything and made them right.
You gave me the will for me to survive,
And you gave me a reason for me to fight.
I learn to reach for my dreams
No matter how hard it may seem.
I just want to see you the following year
To tell you that "I'll always be here".
You never knew, but you've done so much for me;
I can tell some which you can't see.
Just your presence gives me courage
Enough to stop a dragon on a wild rampage.
You brought out all my talents;
You awaken my sleeping potentials;
You encouraged me to do my best
In every problems and trials.
You make me happy when I'm down;
You gave me a smile when I frown;
When I lose hope and abo

How did I get here?
The four white walls that surround me are without decoration. I'm lying a a twin sized bed with bars on each end. I look around, there are no windows, no doors. Yet I am not concerned.
I move slowly then feel something yank on my wrists and ankles. Shackles chain me to the the bed. It's slightly uncomfortable yet still I feel no fear.
I realize my wrists are raw, like I've been fighting against the restraints, although I do not know why. What's the point?
Suddenly two men in white sterile uniforms enter, their faces hidden by white masks. Their eyes are the same, one black and lifeless the other red and burning.
I know what's to come, so I'm not shocked when they pull out needles and knives. They peel back my skin, re-arranging me, transforming me. I think I faint, yet I feel nothing.
I awake, the white room is now splattered with blood: mine.
The "doctors" are gone and so am I. My body, my face has been replaced with a new design. a mirror has been place
