and follows the patterns of movement you trace,
hands dipping into spots i can't begin to reach,
fulfilling, searching, desiring.
There is hatred muffled by the wants of lust,
allowing, for just this time, peaceful coexistence,
fragile and harsh as it lashes back,
and rears out to snap it's jaws around our heads,
foregoing any other rational thoughts.
lips crushing, soft velvet, cliche thoughts,
fingers raking, raping the skin and tearing it down,
blood fading, pouring, spilling onto crimson sheets,
blending in, no care, desire and heat and lust,
no love, no touches of gentile rom

EmotionsEmotions are too confusingEmotions7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
There are too many
the list too long
Some I don't understand
Some I don't have
Some I want
Some I need
They are racing though my head
going faster and faster
I wonder who is winning
who is gaining
who's thier master
I sit and I hope while lost in the commotion
that when I open my eyes I'll understand these emotions.

Broken wordsSo many words lost upon my lipsBroken words8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Left to linger and sour
I feel the end is near.
No more time to dream
reality won't wait
I hate feeling lonely
but what else is there for me to feel
No one is near me
No strong arms to catch me
Falling on to the razor's edge
brings the numbness back
A rain to wash my sins away
will the water be crimson or black?
Darkened skies to hide the light
Would you hear me if I cried?
If I screamed and whined
Wished to die tonight?
If I fall into the open arms of death
Would he kiss me and love me
Or carry me in silence to the end
His clammy touch against my flesh

the wind beat against me and pushed me forward and downward, and as i climbed the rocky sky, i got a good look at the fast moving lies and loves, zipping past me, things only springtime scents and scarcities can bring to me.
but everything passes, and i toppled down the mountain of melodies and monstrosities my city calls the heavens. my taste of the sky was sweet and silver tasting, but my earth is endearingly bitter with a strong, subtle aftertaste of dreams and delusions.
truly, i had hoped to bring you back a little souvenir, but i'll be content to weave bedtime stories

Trapped alone in independence -
A life of barren loneliness.

a pain of hurt

a life of sin

if only i could capture that in a hand
a voice which made me feel warm inside
to forget everything and join this ride

The deafening scream that shatters the windows pierces her lips.
My lost hope, dead fears, dying love for life.
These feelings I once had, all now a mere memory.
Memories die with you, fade with you, burn with you.
Their lives, cradled in the palm of my hand.
A gentle yet horrid gesture and they disperse throughout infinity.

In my insufferably long life.
How many times will I watch someone die?
How many times will I be left behind?
Even I can't see the distant future.
Will I be able to take someone into it with me?
When my partner despairs of his unending life.
How will I atone?

Stop my Pulse
I'm tired of living
So take life away from me
Stop my pulse, stop my breathing
Stop my heat from beating
Stop my life from the tortured soul I am
Stop my pulse, stop my breathing
Just take it away already
I'm tired of being the tortured soul I am
Just give me the knife
And Ill slit my throat if you refuse
To shoot me with your gun
I wanted to die by your hands or mine
So just, stop my pulse, stop my breathing
Stop my heart from beating

I can hear your heart racing in my mind
Your breath building and growing
And my mind weeps
As my heart still beats for you
I can feel your breath hot on his neck
Your body shaking and squirming
And my skin grows cold
As my heart still aches for you
I can see your body contort and shift
Your sweat streaming down
And my eyes want only to shut it out
As my heart still longs for you
I can taste the sweat beading on your chest
Your heart beating faster and then...
And my tongue seeks bitter words
As my heart still breaks for you
The PulseIt's so hard when you're so close.The Pulse6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
How can you just let go.
When thoughts are neverending,
yet, you put them to the side.
You wish so many things.
so many things that seem so out of reach.
and the hardest part is facing reality.
But if we give in to pain. We might as well throw in those questions.
You know. those pointless questions that we'll never know the answer to.
Why? Why? Why? We've all been there.
We've all sat down and asked why.
It's life. Thats why.
I am absent-minded.
My cold stare is as tragic is it gets.
I feel nothing. Absolutely nothing.
I'm simply warm. So cold, yet warm.
But im in such a simple

I've known sadness,
I've known lonliness,
and I was happy with it...
Until I met you.
I didn't know true happiness,
and you made me second guess myself.
I can't help but think
that we are in some way... playing pretend,
and I'm second guessing you.
Your dirty sandals reveal your thousand mile walk...
and if you take me on your rollercoaster...
let me sit in the front seat...
so that I can see what's ahead of me.
cigaretteI think a cigarette would best helpcigarette9 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
to describe how i feel,
I'd sit on my patio with my legs drawn
up under me, I'd lean against something
in the grey damp of november
and I'd smoke and let tears fall
as i watch the air
for invisible particles.
paricles of smoke, city grime and of me.
watch the sky for a bomb
draw and let the tears itch and dry
on my cheeks
that would be the end of detached me,
and I'd burn it and inhale,
and the taste would stay with me,
my hands my hair, acrid.

But they're things you'll never hear
You're way too good for me
And that was exactly what I feared
I can never be your perfect girl
Or give you everything you deserve
I hate to admit it but maybe
You're better off with someone like her
And I'll never be good enough for you
I've fallen a little bit in love with you
And it's funny
I can't believe I feel this way
I've really fallen deep
And that's all I can't say
I find myself wondering
What it'd be like to be your girl
Would I be enough for you?
Would I be your entire world?
And when yo
