on the outskirts of joliet,
i saw You between red glowing streams:
weaving the horizon like a tapestry,
recycling gold beads from a pale morning sari,
dyeing blue-violet fever, shivers
leaking from my head down my arms,
resting in my belly beside You—mixing veins in the night,
embellishing the road with thoughts
of creation: You spin a thread and it unwinds,
fraying at the ends where the cars break the asphalt
and i convulse,
spinning out of control—You doe-eyed like the kid
who crashed his mother's car and dies heavy beneath
that semi, stuck in the pitch dark, oil blearing opalescent
under the gaping taillights—streetlights—headlights—
on the outskirts of joliet.

Kaleidoscope WaltzI left my shoes in the grass just to touch base with you, running around in the flesh of that humid summer night, and although we were perspiring in the paleness of a self driven moon, your face revealed such an inviting glow, rising with your presence like a darling firefly mimicking the very stars above earthly measures that created our picture perfect portrait,Kaleidoscope Waltz9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And every time you greeted us with a smile, you made the purple watercolors in the sky blush, and moss which resonated from the nearby trees, sprout in a bluish green homage to praise nostalgia with a brand new awakening, watching our atmosphere flee silence to uncover the wondrous uproar of Edens reincarnation,
It was you and I alone, creating our own world where beauty was never meant to be contained, as we lifted our faces to the stars, floating away in unscathed bliss where nothing else mattered but the depth of relevance, because we lived for the pleasantries of tomorrow and the b

what lies below the surface of the ocean can only be imagined in the mind of a child who chooses to live the life of an adventurous explorer,
white sands trace the memories of time, covering unexplored grounds to the boy who wished to reveal a past lifetime with his hands,
he discovered what would presume to look like an ordinary comb protruding from the ground, only ordinary to those who reject the magic of imagination,
meticulously studying the artifact with both palms spread open; he held the object as if it were a sacred heirloom of a renowned aquatic royal family,
the golden handle, handcrafted in precision to imitate the appearance of a seashell, noticing golden hairs still stuck on the teeth of the brush,
he assumed that it was the comb of an underwater mermaid princess of the Lost City of Atlantis, brushing her hair in soft strokes

with faith depleating and heeding
and tv numbing our feeling
you knew our meaning.
You knew our suffering.
You saw what we were afraid of.
face to face you saw it.
You lived it.
a reflection of your mind came out through your songs
you could have taught us of what had surely gone wrong
We saw your fear; the fear that maybe you didnt exist.
The fear that maybe you're not who you thought you were
when we look too long at ourselves
all that we'll see
an illusion of a person
that only wants to see "Me"
We never see us...too fucking obvious!
Always with the God Damned hard way!
did we forget we're all here together?
That we exist identically
No time, no length.
Why did you get caught up in you!
you always knew you werent really there.
you were just too damned afraid to say it!
Too afraid to see the truth... you're Everywhere man

curled tightly beneath folded leaves,
and branches stripped bare from this past winter.
She writhed in pain without moving at all,
caught in a wind that wasn't,
crying out in a noiseless whisper.
I had to close my eyes to remove myself from the scene.
What had happened to this creature to bring this...
this existence that reaches levels beyond any hell Dante could have known?
I want to reach out to her,
to brush the silken strands away from the sun bleached bone,
but I don't.
She'll infect me,
I know it.
She'll infect me with her misery,
her pained essence,
and I can't have that.
I find myself infected with a life that couldn't be far from hers,
and to add her sickness to my own...
How much faster would it take me to her?
I should do the right thing:
I should call someone for her;
help her from this place;
hide her from the light;
sing her a song,
for she is truly one of the missing.

The time has come
To save mankind.
I turn and look forward,
My world left behind.
Beginning to walk
Down the cluttered path.
Trees create shadows
Consumed with wrath.
Be strong, I thought.
Ill take one glance back.
I see some with sorrow,
Others under attack.
Soon this will all be over,
I wont have to exist.
A cold, hard corpse.
Ill leave their midst.
Loves ones will grovel,
Ultimately, I wont be missed.
My enemies will cheer,
The ones whod hit me with a fist.
I pull out the ball,
Tiny and golden.
I now know what to do.
To myself, I must embolden.
Lips press against the metal,
Revealing minuscule words.
Im going to die, I say.
The cawing of the birds.
Four ghostlike forms
Expose themselves to me.
I know them all,
Theyre here to guarantee.
A past teacher,
Both my parents,
Were the feature.
They tell me to rest,
An almost painless practice.
Theres nothing to fear.
Less pain than a cactus.

this time, flowers blossomed without thorns and stems lost their attachment, petals stuck out like the arms of courageous children swooping down slides in a park that was seen for miles down the road, life lines translated into simple cursive that painted her blank facial expression, spelling out her name in joyous celebration,

On the way out the door one cold morning.
They mean so much inbetween.
Whispered skin rushed against one another,
Arms held across each other.
Secrets float through the air,
You don't want to let go-
You fear the moment when you watch the person dissapear.
You want them in your arms once more-
Wishing you could whisper that you care,
That you love them.
The memory of their perfume lingers on your clothes.
You try not to cry-
When the hug turns into a silent good bye.
You watch the luggage pile up.
The house divided with coloured sticky notes-
The car holding everything you loved,
Everything that reminded you of the other.
You go to hug one more time,
Feeling the coldness-
The missing perfume that's usually there.
You feel nothing,
But the sadness held in your hidden

Cocooned in my virtuality, the rate of disintegration can only
appear slow, the remorseless grinding of the geology of my days
When will the plates finally shift, the quake that banishes my quiddity
unthrone all sentience, the depths disown what had seemed to float
above the unplumbed depths of organicity,
impervious to the blood-boiling turmoil of the gut.
My truth is my mortality, that alone will never leave me go.
Conception, that implosive moment when a million futures perish,
when two in a moment of fusion predicate the existence of one,
when tangled ribbons of time are knotted and woven
into robes of potentiality, potentiality clothed in nascent flesh. Even as the blossom buds
the seeds of ultimate decay take root. That final moment
is adumbrated with the earliest stirrings of the embryonic heart.
My truth is my mortality, that alone will never leave me go.

Named as a killer,
But not for who he is.
Sentenced to prison
Freed by revenge.
Feared by most,
Sane by innocence.
Lost in thought,
Sitting in a cave,
Waiting as Padfoot,
Saught by Prong's Son.
Fed by rats,
Saved by the Godson.
Hated by All,
Loved by one.
Hidden in number twelve,
Restless as a dog.
Seen in a fire,
Almost caught by a witch.
Snuffles to some,
Padfoot to others.
Fallen though the vail;
Gone but not lost.

Creations that do not matter
With no root and no solution

Electric temples of the blind
Burn out eyes
Of exposed conformist souls

The fakeness of your existence
Assimilated self destruction
Buried by acquired wishes
Its mindless billions of brains

She didn't want to leave that world, yet unfortunately her senses warned her she was edging ever closer to reality. How she hated to leave her world of wonder. She loved that world; she was happy there. He was happy there.

Misunderstood for my good intentions,

Listen to my friend-she's crying,
Try to explain to her my mistake,
But her tearful voice seeps into my ears,
And I can't seem to set it straight,
If they'd just take a moment to listen,
If they weren't so damn hard to reach,
If only I could take more time hear them out,
I wouldn't be sitting back listening to life teach,
Maybe silent pains the best kind,
Not having to explain as they continue to cry,
But maybe it's better to talk your heart out,
Where at least your not dying inside,
If everyone strived for peace,
If everyone thought before they spoke,
No one would have to deal with screw-ups,
Tears from very depths of the hearts they broke,
Maybe I'm not meant for everything I try for,
And maybe everything I do is destined to come un-done,
Maybe good is a job for the angels,
Maybe love is only givable from the Son,
