Ode to the ZombieMy wounded soul bleeds,
More Like This
Because of these insidious seeds,
That have been planted
Within the very depths
Of my beating heart
My thoughts plummet and fall
From a malfunctioning brain,
I scream in intense pain
as I gaze into the mirror,
My body decays,
And I weep for former vanity,
As the infection pushes me
Closer and closer to insanity,
Eventually I turn away from the glass
To search for all the healthy people,
My hunger is fueled by hate,
I must satiate myself,
Upon the flesh and muscle of the living….

5 seconds to DecemberI would not know how to remember you,

If I loved you or you loved me better.
Sifting you through the clumsy fingers of memory,
I stutter in black ink, scribbling with white spaces.
Amorphous secrets bleed to blur,
Time cannot hold the calm of forgetting in its numbers,
Neither contain the meanings it meanders.
I would not know how to keep you,
You fade brilliantly, slowly into amnesia.
Speak softly, and help me remember why I shouldn't lose this promise.
Hush the fire that sneak slowly in my veins,
Tempt me into your sky, to drift carelessly into your ocean.
Know that when you forget me, I would have already forgotten you.
That if I find you, you would've already written me over in your pages.
But listen to how your hair sleeps on your shoulders,
For every now and then, I still hear how it slept on mine.
Recognize the emptying of cups and coffee shops,
Or the end of rainfall at crowded bus stops,
These are the corners with just but the two of us,
Catching us unaware with their escaping
