My Dark HeartBleakness encompass me.
Black tears roll down my cheeks.
When will the pain stop?
When will the blood cease?
There is a hope.
I want no more of this light.
It hurts to the core.
I will embrace the night.
Darkness in my heart.
A beating of a different kind.
A savage beast.
It will be me.
A change. A mental wolf.
I am bitten. I will change.
The transformation happens.
I am and always will be darkness.

Amber grains of wheat beating to their own dream
Cease the tide of hatred and ignorance

Outer shell, the lies of the flesh, future denied
Remember the past, dreams and memories, 'tis but another
But this is the body I wear, I was the boy who cried and tried
I gave and loved and lived, it wasn't enough for the other
Dances and kisses and hugs were in abundance, they couldn't hide
Dried blood, tears and sweat, screams of pain and agony, rather
Exalted bliss is denied and there is almost no one that I can confide
Nay, I must obey my mind and bury her deep inside, her I must smother

This is a poem
for lip gloss
and the pre-teen
who wears it
and the old woman
This is for
sparkle and stick.
For bodies like
For all the boys and girls
who would breath in
when the wick turned black.
Before their hair
turned grey with ash,
and their eyes fogged over
from the naked heat.
Before young love dies
and is buried in a shoebox,
with a little pile of rocks
to mark where it was.
This is for
the scared little boy
who spent all his time
While pretty girls
lay on autumn hills,
and even the crickets play
in major key.
With their noses
face down in the soil.
With their discarded jackets
on the grass, limp-
and making angels.

Ode To My Broken HeartUpon the light I see myself.Ode To My Broken Heart1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I see the past and who I was.
I see the future and what I want.
I see the present and I see myself.
Away from this life is another.
There is a place where I am safe and loved.
That life is alien and cold, too distant.
My flesh cracks and breaks open, revealing inside.
There is emptiness and a void where my heart should be.
There is nothing yet there is me, a paradox of flesh and lies.
My eyes open, a light shining through them.
The truth shines through and revelations abound.
I look and feel and walk and live and feel cold.
These hands, this body, a vessel empty inside.
No heart, no soul, just bleak eternity to be found.
Where is the star in the sea of night, my beacon bright?
It is nowhere and everywhere, for I wander and I wonder.
There is no hope for me, I am just another unloved.
There is no love left anymore, nothing and no one is real.
There is only darkness inside, just another poser.
I rage and scream and bleed and live and grow old and I will die.

Love Always Finds A WayI love you so true, I always have done,Love Always Finds A Way2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
For years I kept this secret, but the results, I had none.
I look in your eyes, I want them to look at me,
But it seems that I am the only thing, you could not see.
I waited for you to put your arms,
Around my neck, holding palm against palm.
And now I see you with a girl, another,
My dream is gone, but only a flutter.
I will hold my dreams strong, they will not float away,
As my mother once said, love always finds a way.

Though she has had to change her handle
She'll always be the girl that is 'Aerith'
I Heard My Old ScreamI heard my old screamI Heard My Old Scream2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Haunt the fields beyond my window.
I floated down into the dirt
And let the trees of grass dye my robes
As I shrunk into the mushroom spores.
I tossed myself like old lemon rinds at her feet,
While she orbited me like a satellite
Until her weeping crescendoed to anguished shrieks.
Then I heard her voice
Burn holes through the past
Where she asked me to try and stand up straight.
But I couldn't stand to charge my lungs with breath
So she lifted
Strangeness off my chest.
I felt her hollow hand
Hold up my reeling head
And wondered how a surreal Echo
Could be so physical.
There I was, dancing on sweet toes
Through halls of foreign eyes,
My tears a solution of dread and fright
Clinging to my skin
Yet my body was dry as October leaves;
Easy to ignite
And like a matchstick burnt
Through dim eras of pain
Until she poured over me
Like a waterfall.
Then I felt her voice
Shake the milkyway,
Scattering moondust in my eyes,
Blinding me with a lunar l

Spread your wings and flyaway

Just forget the sweet and bitter
Hold on to love,
It will save you from this
Your wings are stained with lies from others
Forget the memories
The help is on the way.

I do not live with you
where today meets tomorrow
where black and white
You are a rainbow of sparkling windows
hollow faces that try to know
but just can't.
I am the tower
on a dilapidated Victorian
I am chipped
but I am smiling
I see the beauty
You doubt yourself
in the renovations
and transformations you've made
and so do I.
Except I doubt the changes
I haven't made yet.
You and I are so similar
the corners of one triangle.
But if you look from far enough away
we are all the points of stars
and it is impossible to tell us apart
from the black holes.
You keep a comfortable distance
not admitting that we are the same
you try to walk between the rain lines
and I give myself to the silent flood.
I can tell you pity me.
But I tell you
that there is nothing wrong with me-
with loving not wisely
but too well.

A Cubby for my HubbyThere once was a man named CarlosA Cubby for my Hubby2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Who met another man named Marlo
When their eyes first met
They knew immediately it was set
Things in motion
Love was the potion
A very special evening in September
That they would both remember
When one asked the other
For the nights of forever
His answer was yes
Their fate together sealed with lips caress
Years passed, happiness and joy
Revealed to them the genes of their boy
The little one was the product of their love
Raised out of heaven with a body like a dove
Summers and summers of years gone by
They saw their son off to college and said good-bye
Before their golden years could be shared in bliss
Time tore asunder their union with something amiss
A death begot a death, a father and a fathers' son
The stress of the loss was too much for this loved one
So here I am picking the cubby for the body of the
Man who was and always will be my hubby
Marriage EqualityI just want you to imagine with me for a moment.Marriage Equality2 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Imagine you've found a person that completes you, that makes you feel happiness that you never thought possible.
They make you laugh.
They wipe away your tears.
You melt in their embrace.
Their kisses leave you breathless.
Their body, mind and soul, fit yours in what can only be described as perfection. To say you're in love with this person, is almost an understatement. You adore them. Everything they are, and everything they do.
Finally, the time in your lives comes when you want to be bonded together in a meaningful, significant way. You want to get married.
Now imagine, that you encounter a problem.
Nothing is wrong with the rings, a sparkling matching set. It's not that you're not in love, you're love is pure and unhindered. The problem, is an outdated law. One that needed to be challenged years ago.
By now you will have realised that I've been asking you to imagine this scenario without hinting at gender, or sexuality. You filled t
White Orchid in a Bed of RosesWhite Orchid in a Bed of Roses2 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
I'm a white orchid
In a field of rose
swaying yet clinging
when the wind of unwant blows,
I stick out in the crowd
but often am lost
my difference isn't desired
a needless cost,
I stay grounded where I am
while the others are picked
and each time one moves
my essence is pricked,
they don't want me either
they find me too plain
a valueless nothing
with no love to gain,
I'll wither eventually
but I have nothing to lose
my life has no worth to others
why would I force some one to choose?,
All people want
is beauty and grace
they don't want me
and my natural, plain face,
there once was a person
that came by and saw me
finally I was noticed
and it filled me with glee,
but somewhere along the line
a black rose was added to the bed
and like that he lost interest
and picked her instead,
I was left among the weeds
to die come life's cold winter
my white petals falling
and stem starting to splinter,
left alone in the world
I embraced the cold
no one would care
I had no one to hold,
A Happy EndingA stranger walked by a crying little girl,A Happy Ending2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Tear and blood stains on her sleeves
He asked, "Darling are you okay?" She nodded.
He took her heart and then took leave.
A small boy crossed the little girl,
Mascara crawling down her face,
He asked how she was and she sighed, "Fine."
He grabbed her toys and left with no trace.
A lonely mother glanced at the girl,
Bleeding out in the middle of the street.
She asked her nothing, too weighed down with grief,
And stole the shoes off the young girl's feet.
The girl's soul mate was crawling by,
Bleeding, in pain, with a fever hot.
When the girl lied and said she was okay,
He kissed her and whispered, "No you're not."
Hello, Autumn. 'Hello, Autumn.'Hello, Autumn.2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Once upon an autumn night, I felt a soft, hissing breeze, tangling the hair around my cheeks.
I heard soft splashing rain as it fell on my eyelashes, creating small beads that reflected light of the distant stars.
I saw flame-colored leaves deserting their branches as they covered the wet ground like a child's cluttered toys. As I looked at the now-bare trees, hunched under grey clouds that blocked the moonlight from reaching earth; I was reminded of obnoxious ghosts--trapped souls begging for mercy with their screams.
And as the rain kept pouring, emptying the black sky, I was reminded of summer times on a rooftop's broken ledge. I would pretend that the drops on my forehead were salty sea-water; that the wet mud was hot sand and as I let my memories take over, falling leaves would sw

I try to evade,

I want to live,

I'm fading away,
can't find myself.
But no one hears my cry.
The darkness smiles in glee.
As I've lost myself all together.
I will never be free.
