but some of my emotions
are,and you brought that
hammer down hard enough to
break the backs of mountains.
you made me into a
paper thin wisp,who won't breathe
properly for fear of tearing.
i was once braver than the
now i'm wrapped in peeling
yellow mucus, sunlight fading
my ambitions and turning
my thoughts to straw.
you thought summer was safety?
a haven for the souls winter
failed to claim?
summer is a husk
summer is Dresden, 1945
my river beds are crispy
and parched, but my skies are
saturated with war,
swollen to ugly hues

piloting a slab of spiced meat.
we flaunt a rub of sweetly blended
emotions, dress up with the greens
of love and compassion, a slightly
altered taste than the person
next to you.
physical attributes cannot be ignored
but the extra kick of personality
and the zesty pinch of
variance you radiate are far more
pigment and gender mean nothing, just don't breed pain
or treat equals like peasants.

who raised me like rabid animals
they're so cruel to everyone
riddled with two blind eyes each,
they've never seen a mirror
nor the plagues they've caused

bleaching white; a clear photonic
puzzle of what my thoughts used
to be. my mind feels about five
pounds lighter without the constant
bombardment of negative chemicals
rushing through mushy grey matter.
if summer were a medicine
i'd take three doses everyday,
injecting raw sunlight into my
veins and swallowing your smile
with a heavy glass of water.
my demons won't freeze, perhaps they'll burn

packing your heart in an envelope
and shipping it to a distant corner
you've never even dwelled in.
so you try it; string yourself across
dry corpses and puddles filled with weeds
as if selling your love to a gypsy
light years away.
hearts aren't strong enough to make
such a journey. under the pitiful
conditions, it becomes a lump of
stone, drained from the lack of
care they give it.
do not gamble away something so pure
to someone who can't even touch you

Through soft blue eyes,
Mind all twisted,
From sweet little lies,
Given life your all,
So many valiant tries,
Tears fall softly,
From your silent cries,
All that seems good,
Showing its darker sides,
Once was an angel,
Where the demon now resides,
A beautiful smile,
In the darkness it hides,
As you take this razor,
Your world slowly dies.

How long would you expect to last?
Sunshine and rain, day and night,
You lean into the warmth of light.
Make or break, your time comes now,
Is it friendly, does it play fowl?
Roots in deep, holding your ground,
Never giving up, all year round.
Feed your core, make yourself strong,
You will prevail, It will not take long,
Small you might be, that will not last,
growing up and out, you will be vast.
Thrive through the seasons up ahead,
Be a marker for the trails we tread,
Witness the world and history to be,
Make yourself a wonder for all to see.
Once you were small, with nothing but fears,
They soon faded away, lost within the years,
So I ask you, how long would you expect to last?
Standing alone in natures grasp?
