The looking glass selfThis is existing. I can leave marks on people or pages or winter pavements. Mostly in shades of violet grey. And I wonder if that is what defines me. When I die I will lose all my nerve endings and all I will leave will be the places I have touched and the people I have loved (there aren't enough) and I wonder if concrete can remember.The looking glass self3 years ago in Sketches More Like This
I think about dying sometimes, I think about the world without me. I hope I'll be missed. By my family, a few friends and, maybe now you? I think of all the things I wouldn't get to see autumn and the milky way sky above my parents house next summer and my children and a thousand other things but mostly time carving your face into something new but never changing those eyes.
There it is. My concept of you is built around your face with your blazing eyes that burn right into my me. And your hands. Oh god. The things you do with your hands. But me? I am not my face or my hands. I look in the mirror some mornings and I am surprised. My fac

I'm standing at the window and you're at the door and
I just can't seem to tear my eyes away
from nothing that really matters anyway.
You will always come back to me. Bringing me my bleakest smile and tiredness so deep that I just need to stop, just... just for a minute...
It's not about endless tears or clean cut skin.
It's like my heart is

Every hope floats

Collapse our minds in tangled hair

În suflet răsună aurie
Toamna lui Vivaldi.
Vântul și ploaia se izbesc de geamuri
frunze aurii, roșii,verzi, maronii
se ridică pe toate cărările
în fiecare culoare câte un strigăt.
Stau în fața ta, goală,
în casă e cald, pe masă aburește
vinul fiert,aburii se ridică printre crizanteme.
Stai în fața mea ca un miracol.
Știi cum se stă față în față cu un miracol?
sufletul îți înfulecă avid
printre pupilele tale se strecoară lumina
irisul e plin de dulci întrebări
cum e vara câmpul plin de ciocârlii.
Ai fost plecat departe.
Te-am regăsit în ploaie și-n ceață
pe o bancă, în mijlocul unei grădini
unde mai sunt încă trandafiri înfloriți
stropiți de ploaie,
zâmbind printre boboci multicolo

Afară ploua cum nu mai plouase nicicând.
Secundarul accelera tot mai mult
strigându-le muritorilor să se grăbească.
Buzele tale aveau gust de vin tânăr,
dar aveau tăria unui vin vechi
și de aceea ochii mei o luaseră razna
în timp ce minte mea dansa
împletindu-se cu a ta.
Simțeam muncitorii alergând în jurul nostru
încercând să-și ascundă sufletele sărace
de ploaia ce cădea peste zidurile vechi
Câinii ne lătrau fericirea
și nepăsarea pe care o arătam
în fața dezastrului universal.
Afară ploua cu cianură,
iar oamenii deveniseră invizibili.
Doar sufletele noastre de fum
se înălțau deasupra tuturor
ținându-se de mână.

Blue stars and orange eyes
Lightning strikes and leaves fly
Desperate dance in the night sky
Will thou join me tonight
Swirl winds and witches howl
All to keep us apart
Candle light glow
In this village I’m alone
Innocent eyes watch me die
Blue stars and orange eyes
Wipe away tears that I cry
Run out, scream and shout
Bloody feet so devout
And they carry me to you!
Shining teeth, wrinkled snout
Don’t I know that’s your own mouth
Clear glazed orange eyes
Tinged with yellow, are they mine!
My darling, my friend
Do you walk away
Mad by night, transformation takes you
Crimson flood, it’ll never wash you clean love
Wading, stumbling- trying to find you amidst the flow
Confession is I never expected to find you
Blue stars and orange eyes
What is truth and what is lies
Nightmares come and go (but so do dreams)
I have scars, but none are flaws
Only happen to match your claws
Raging wolf, tackle me with your

I was the pedestrian with the potential of being innocent roadkill.
The pillow in the road was my competition, and it was anyone's lucky day of death by car.
Cars raced towards the pillow, swerving nearly into each other ...just to avoid hitting it.
Now I was approaching the point were it was the pillow or me, neck and neck ... ... ... the pillow lost.

She tore it up
Ripped it from me like a tree
Split by heaven's knife
I hobbled to the edge
The darkness was frightening
The meaning was worse
My words tasted bitter:
"You expect me to jump?"
She tore it up
I couldn't find a single piece
Every scrap was burned
I cried out in pain
But it was a scream of silence
My blood was still inside
She didn't understand
She showed me the logic
She tore it up
My last salvage of that other world
Where reality is crushed
I sank to my knees
"I understand, I understand "
Like heck you do. You never have
You've lost yourself in dreaming
And the world has cast you out

Shame Lies Within MeShame Lies Within Me1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
In the shadows,
of where my shame lies,
in the darkness,
I see my own blindness,
that has caused my own ignorance,
my shame that lies,
with my fears and doubts,
of when it will end,
after being chained,
for so long,
how can I end this suffering,
that resided within me for,
so long how can I break it,
why should it be broken,
I'm only a shamed human,
that should be punished,
punishment fits in shame,
where it resides in,
the shadow of darkness,
chained for all eternity,
forsakened among others,
why should I be saved,
only shame lies within me,
and it will never die.
RainRain10 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I remember like it was yesterday,
When I used to hate the rain.
Until you came into my life,
And taught me how to look past the drops that fell.
As we embraced the thunder and lightening,
As we grew more numb and wet,
I realized that new beginnings weren't so bad, after all.
I fell hard for you...
And beside you I remained,
Until the night was over.
Now, whenever I see the rain fall:
I think of that night,
And I think of you...
When you taught me how to survive a storm,
By learning how to dance in the rain.
It was that night when I looked up,
When I gazed into your warm, brown eyes;
As the raindrops fell onto your eyelashes...
I wanted to dance with you,
In the pouring rain
