A Kiss Locked In His HeartA Kiss Locked In His Heart6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Well, just because you said that...if I don't survive, I'll be haunting your dreams.
You already do.
Oh really? Except now it'll be all the things you'll never have...
The light drifted in through the curtains and fluttered under his eyelids. He groaned, tossing the covers so they fell over his head and turned his body away from the light. He did not want anything to disrupt her beautiful face. Her hand was reaching out to stroke his cheek, and she was smiling in that devious manner that sent shivers up his spine. The anticipation was killing him. He wanted her. He wanted to be lost in the flavor of her hair, the scent of her skin, damped with perspiration, and to die in the suffocation of a kiss which leaves one breathless forever.
But she was already dead.
Melanie had been lying silent in front of a marble gravestone for three weeks now. He hadn't even brought himself to visit her grave site since the funeral as if visiting it again would s
The EpiphanyI still remember when you stopped breathing.The Epiphany7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your eyes glazed over in perpetual thought
And I wondered how many times you've left the toilet seat up,
Ate from my fridge, and did not pick up the tab.
I waited anxiously for that breath of life that would free me.
The moment seemed to last one moment too long.
Then it hit me.
A whiff of minty too
The MirrorIm sick of this.The Mirror7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I hear you talking, but Im no longer listening.
Your voice is just a high pitch whine.
I pick up on the anger.
I pick up on the frustration.
But the truth is:
I dont care anymore.
What is it that youre saying?
Im a failure again.
I dont need a reminder
For each time I disappoint you.
The room would be filled with stick-it notes
And hateful delusions.
Entering the twilight zone
But were not getting off the ride when it ends.
What do you want from me?
You get down on your knees
And youre pleading.
Oh, do you think the world is listening?
Your words far more superior
Im the inferior.
Ive been told.
Lay down my shirt over a puddle so you can cross it
Lay bare and nakedIm open to the world
And you hate it.
Truth is I hate it too.
So what are we going to do about it?
Nothing. Whats the point?
Were just going backwards instead.
Everyone else has bigger problems. I know.
And when you

Of this much he is sure
His very soul, his being
Is trapped within a war
A war that never ends
A war that can't be stopped
A war that when he lies in bed
Is still being fought
He shouldn't sleep alone
For he always lies awake
Praying for the power
To take the lives that he must take
For those who lost their lives
Blame him for their deaths
At least in his mind
So he must get revenge
The snake lies to his right
Promising him power
To make all the wrongs right
But his soul to devour
The fox sits to his left
For him to get some sense
And let himself be free
And so now he must choose
Down which path he will walk
He may not choose correctly
But he will always have the fox

Though, theres nothing on. I could always put in a movie.
Maybe its a sign that I should get some work done
But the more I think about itit just doesnt sound all that fun.
The pile of dishes is slowly growing, but I dont really care
No matter where I gotheyll always just be there.
I guess I could wash them, but then theyll just get dirty again
Oh when, oh when, does this work ever end?

Meet My Friend, LonelinessWatching the rain obscure the window paneMeet My Friend, Loneliness7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Visions looking different and yet the same.
Brings upon the calming affect but a loneliness
That settles deep within my veins.
Figurines are dancing in my imagination
Of you and somebody else you hold dear.
The droplets of water are forming together
You Shouldn'tYou shouldn't be so understandingYou Shouldn't6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So quick to listen to my aches and pains,
My grievances, my annoyances,
Questioning whether I am sane
Or insane or just not thinking at all.
Yet you still ask how are you?
Get concerned when I say 'okay'
And you keep praying someday things will change.
You shouldn't be so thoughtful
So quick to pull me in near.
Knowing the words to make it better,
How to make me smile
When my eyes are brimming with tears
And I don't want to go on
But you keep pushing me forward
Forget-You-NotsAs soon as goodbye fell from your lips,Forget-You-Nots6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Rolled down the front of your shirt,
And shattered against the floor--
Echoing like a pin dropping in silence,
It was at that moment I decided,
You never existed.
Each letter, each gift, each song
You dedicated and whispered in my ear,
Burned, thrown away, and forgotten.
Never happened. Not even a thread
Of you within my mind,
My heart or my dreams.
Replaced the sheets on the bed
Because cleaning them wouldn't do.
Every thing in the house
Just reminded me of you.

Instead of memorizing the lines of your face,
Looking towards the heavens,
Out towards space,
Instead of into your eyes.
I'm spinning in a tumble towards a downward slope.
I'm sinking in a rowboat in a sea of self-doubt.
I'm searching in a dark room for the answers I've heard about.
I'm listening to music
Instead of hearing your voice,
panting in my ear as we become unclothed,

You did what you should,
You decided to leave,
I knew that you would,
You shut the door,
I did not move,
My hand felt the wood,
Its every groove,
I felt alone,
You were ripped from my grip,
I might have stopped it,
Had it not been so quick.
Now that you're gone,
Memories flood back,
Remember we flew?
I feel my heart crack,
We danced on the moon,
We soared through the stars,
Away from the real world,
The roads and the cars.
I barely noticed,
The time that went by,
Time meant nothing,
With you by my side,
But now that you're gone,
My body clock's stopped,
The world continues,
But I, I do not.
No more cars,
No more trees,
No more skies,
No more breeze,
For I am without,
My second half,
My half that allows me,
To love and to laugh.
The stars are all gone,
Each one alike,
I remember the days when they shone so bright,
Sprinkled in the black,
The moon is faint,
The sun, barely glowing,
The frightening darkness,
Now that you're gone,
There's a hole to m

because I've rolled over to discover
only a pillow and not my lover,
sleeping by my side.
When the aroma of coffee
fills the air, I can't help but wonder
what it would smell like
If you were here.
A daily routine of half a heart
consists of mostly longing,
day dreaming of being reunited
with the one who will beat beside it.

IntoxicatedDon't touch me. I'm not strong--Intoxicated7 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
My hands start to shake. It gets harder to breathe
Like somehow by magic, you have a spell over me.
I don't know how you do it. I thought I could pretend
That even though you're not my lover
You could still be one of my best friends.
Yet when I see your eyes, I melt
Your smile just makes me weak in the knees
And I find myself sick with this disease.
My heart starts racing. My head is screaming stop
Longing for your touch, your voice
To somehow raise me back up.
Please make the pain go away
I don't want to hurt anymore.
Please take away the insanity
As I'm running out the door.
Darkness follow after me
