"Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words." - Edgar Allan Poe
WithinTo auspicious beginningsand enigmatic endingsTo the warm golden glowwe once sharedTo flowers that twinkledlike starlight in your hairTo laughter fraught withtwinges of painTo treasures foundonly to disappearTo madness passedin lazy nightsTo harmonious delightsdiscovered at awe inspiring heightsTo buds that never bloomonly to diein the frosty morning dewTo a closing of a nightthat coils itself into a summer dreamTo whispers still heardin the shadow of wordsTo lightning that passesin a thunder stormTo love remainscircling in pools of cavern rainsTo all we wereand will never beTo all those things that mortalsdare to dream There’s a world that’s lostto an average maninside the touch of a gentle handIt’s a restless, hopeless feelingthat will tear you up insidean unquenchable desirethat can never be satisfiedWe've built walls around itshackled it in chainsPoisoned it with medicationsbut still the presence remainsIt talks to us constantlyAlthough, we pretend we can not hearWe turn up our TV'shoping the sound will drive it awayWe create thousands of sources of entertainmentJust to distract us from its painStill it lives inside usand grows stronger everydayWhispering sadly to us:"Everyone may be following the same pathbut they're all going the wrong way"Within this spaceWithin this timeI have seen imagesthat have shattered my mindToo much horrorI can’t describeI’ve seen the best people destroyedwhile the worse surviveBrilliance is strangledwhile evil has thrivedWithin this spaceWithin this timePursuit of the truthhas become a crimeAll that was sacred has now diedWithin this spaceWith this time
Water MusicJust a little water musicbeside the soft moon lightA curious fire’s burninginside this delicate nightIf you want the wavescan carry you awayFloating you gentlyunto another planeJust a little water musicto ease the daily paina little water music to send you on your wayShe turnedsomewhat startledI smiled,and her body easedWhat do you search for out in the sea?I asked her nonchalantly,as wet sand squeezed delightfullythrough her toesIt whispers of our pastand all we wereThe secrets of the universelive within the ocean tidesTime can changeand perspectives become rearrangedBut, miraculous mysteries always flowwithin her majestic wavesIt also brings youback to me, she explainedAway from your watery graveI shed a tearand stood with herSoon I knewI would have to goWe had the oceanwe held each other tightWe had this momentwe shared the nightThese sorrows I feelmuch deeper than fearsBut somewhere all is wellSomeday I'll join you thereWhen all that went wronghas disappearedThen a love that once bloomedcan blossom anewIn this place...that will never beI'll wait for youthrough eternityAs the new tide comes a rolling in the old beach just gives a little away againLike waveswe endless crashupon the same shoreEach seemingly separatelybut always a partof the same intangible forceFlowing together as oneuntil the beach is doneWe are all but tiny drops of waterthat together form a mighty oceanWe are lostbut the ocean has direction In timethe ocean will flowback through usAnd we will saillike glorious shipsonto a beautiful new seaA world inside each wordA lifetime inside a soundUniverses vibratingA soft playful breeze is always dancingand the water music never really stops

She who is trapped in her coffin Tell me young wanderer; do you know of she who wasforced to become a beacon of damnation; refined and confided to be nothing more than this bloody flytrap, trapping the souls of those who dare appose, and fight against the shackles and chains of fate. Yes this, sweet innocent soul who never understood that it was not her destiny but her fate be just another coffin for those foolswhose lives were too stained with sin, and were forsaken by the saintly will of their god. A god who sought to force all into the wonderous embrace of her iron jaws, as each scream echoed and chimed, pleading with all the otherswho were trapped inside. Do you ever wonder what itslike my young wanderer for as you caress the curves of my figure i can tell you are curious, that you wonder what its like inside me; to become one with those foolish souls who turned me into we... who filled our being with the lifeof so many sinners that only desired to stand before theirgod and pray for his mercy. Yes you wish to be digested withthe rest of the flies that cling to my hips and waistline. Yesthose insects who beg to be freed.
They who welcome you to their coffinTell me youth, do you know of they who are the embodiment of the screams that churn and echo with in the mold of theirfolds. Who's allegiance to this legion, is the only reason that a being like this could exist. Yes they who were nothing buta collection of sinners and heathen souls left to the boil and fester alone till another soul wandered to close to their openjaws. But they who created them have no earthly idea of thefiend they created, they couldn't dare fathom this monsterthis amalgamation forged by the desire to no longer sufferalone in this purgatory this hellish damnation that they can never escape from. Yes we know of such a being, but being as such means that we are meant to forever suffer behind these walls of our coffin, confined to a refined punishment ofa hatred that surpasses out desire to be anything more thana monster... a spirit that devours and collects the pain of the many like you who wander to close to our awaiting maw so tell me if you heard of they that awaits for the flies to fly by only to be trapped like all those before, if you wish to be just another cat that curiosity has managed to claim for once you look inside, there will be nothing left but the echoes of your cries
Prayer to the iron maidenlet the fires claim the souls of the unforgiven as we feed those sinners to the maiden and pray for her blessing . let her iron embrace suffocate the weak and pierce the hearts of the wicked. oh maiden tell us what blessings will you beseech upon us, what gifts will you share with those who follow your lore?: I seek not your gifts only the damned who fail to remember my name I the iron maiden of Paradisamo , the widow maker of our heavenly father, and the devourer of those fools who dare wish to feel each curve of my elegant beauty and join the many souls that have formed the legion that is the soul of this fair iron maiden....
the love of chaosIt was rather frightening what i was feeling at that moment. Being held against her chest as her heart sang me to sleep. Was it that i truly believed that she wouldn't' hurt me? Was itthe fact that it was my fear that held me fast to her flesh as she smiled. She shared no words in our moment of peaceshe allowed no moan or pant ruin the serenityof this tranquil fragment where time and spaceseemed to be replaced by the tranquility of herchaotic heart beating, pleading in time with my own hopeful understanding for unity. But she soon opened her mouth to speak to meher voice that of choir of sheer harmony . "Youbelong to me, my love, my sorrowful song of healing; that sooths my being, and quells my chaotic ambitions to send this world into thehellish realms of twilight. .. Give your everything to me, and call to orderthis goddess of chaos so that she may rightthose who dare wrong you." No other words were shared as the warmth of her everythingre-assured me that she would protect mefrom anything....even herself if need be....
Telaranas de AmarguraEl hombre mayor caminaba con dificultad. Le dolían las rodillas, las espaldas y la vida. Caminó hasta el edificio rojo, cuya pintura nueva brillaba al sol como si fuera de rubí y no de resina. Tal como le fuera explicado, encontró una puertita que conducía a una farmacia luminosa. Allá adentro encontró un farmaceuta con una sonrisa color de sol, que le dijo:“Cómo puedo ayudarlo?” Entonces el abuelo le contestó: “Perdí mi sonrisa. Tiene alguna cosa que me la devuelva? Mis parceros de ajedrez me dicen que siempre encuentran sus sonrisas en una caja de medicinas que usted me podría vender.”“Ummmm, no creo que usted necesite una caja de medicinas. Venga, hombre, vamos a tomar un café.”El farmaceuta cerró la farmacia - porque era su propio patrón, hacía siempre lo que le daba gana de hacer - y llevó al desconocido por unas escaleras apretadas hasta su confortable habitación. Las ventanas estaban abiertas y era posible escuchar la música que venía del apartamento del otro lado de la calle, donde una pareja practicaba una coreografía de salsa. En esa habitación, todos los dias habia baile, tanto que los transeúntes no podían dejar de mover la panza.A pesar de los intentos del comerciante para llegar al problema del abuelo, el hombre más grande se evadía, haciendo “enchufes”, “vacilas” y uno o dos “sombreros” al ritmo de Joe Arroyo. Pero la música no dura para siempre; invariablemente llega el momento de quitar zapatos de baile y enfrentar la realidad.Así que empezó el abuelo a contar su historia: “Hace muchos años, por la pascua, nuestro hijo nos visitó con su familia, Lídia y Carolina. Yo estaba sentado en la cocina, cuando, súbitamente, Carolina aparece imitando a un perro.”~~~~ “Cariño, vienes por la mañana -”“Guau, guau, guau” le interrumpió la niña.Jaja, mira cómo tu cuerpito tiembla de entusiasmo, pensó.“Ya sé.” le contestó Antonio. “Guau, guau, guau.” “Aquí tienes tu galleta.” el abuelo abre la lata de galletas, escoge la más grande la deja caer en las manos suplicantes.En ese momento una nube que había cubierto el sol se movió. El azúl cielo brilló por unos segundos, reflejándose en los limpios ojos fijos en la galleta. “Lina, yo tengo un regalo para ti, lo hice yo mismo para mi nieta preferida.” Antonio llevó un dedo estirado a los labios. “No cuentes a tu prima.”Los labios de la nieta se abrieran en una “o” y tembló más rápido.El hombre canoso le alcanzó un libro de tapa de cuero. En la primera página había inscrito: “Tu sonrisa, tus abrazos, tus ojos curiosos, mis favoritos.”Como un rayo, Carolina corrió a sus papás, que estaban en la sala.“Mira! Mira! El abuelo me dibujó un cuento de hadas!”La mirada de los hombres se cruzó, mientras daban gracias a Dios por aquella bendición incapaz de quedarse más de dos minutos en el mismo lugar. ~~~“Esa fue la última mañana, comprendes?” murmuró el abuelo después que bebió con avidez un trago de aguardiente. Estaba de pie junto a la ventana, sin embargo, no estaba en la habitación. Su mente examinaba recuerdos, tantas veces examinados, que si fueran fotografias ya se habrian roto. “No, no creo que comprendo” le contestó el compañero confuso. "Querer mirarte y no poder mirarte. Querer tocar tus cabellos y no poder tocarlos. Querer abrazarte y no poder abrazarte… mi hijo…" él alcanzó el brazo por el aire como se buscara la mano de alguien. ~~~En la casa entró Antonio y de sus labios un suspiro salió. La pareja discutía en voz alta. Nuevamente."Tu corres lejos de tus problemas y los invitas a tu casa!" gritó Lídia a su marido."Fugaz, efímera, tu aprobación." Marcelo sentado, ocultaba sus rostro con las manos."Basta! Basta de poesia, Marcelo!""Ya no puedo soportar más discusiones." El hijo se levantó. "Papá estás allá?" Sin esperar la respuesta, caminó deprisa hasta la puerta. La mirada de los hombres se cruzó, mientras maldecían las estrellas. Tomaron sus abrigos, que aunque no los protegían de palabras cortantes, los podían proteger de la lluvia, y se dirigieron a la salida.Simultáneamente, la mujer furibunda, horneando en su ira, arrojó un plato en su dirección. El espíritu de un cualquier antepasado atento a los acontecimientos, desvió el camino del arma pseudo fatal, que entonces se rompió en la inquieta pared a la izquierda de Marcelo. La vida en la calle se detuvo como un reloj roto. El pueblo se quedó boquiabierto ante el drama casero. ~~~"Su matrimonio no iba bien. Hubo un tiempo en que la risa fluía como vino, la habitación olía a felicidad y se sentía el calor de nuevas emociones entusiasmantes emanando de los cuerpos." Contó Antonio al farmaceuta. "No obstante el amor que tenían uno por el otro, los demonios de la adicción les complicaba la relación. "Qué pasó entonces, parcero?""Íbamos a bailar salsa y a tomar una cerveza. Ese era el plan. Una cerveza…"~~~Antonio desvió los ojos de la mujer, que se rompia delante de él en mil pedazos, los cuales se juntaban a los pedazos del plato que todavía adornaban el piso."¿Cómo pudiste permitirle a tu hijo borracho que condujera? ¿Que papá permite a un hijo alcohólico que conduzca?" El discurso mordaz brotaba ininterrumpido de la viuda. Su mirada, más pesada que hierro. Sus palabras, más venenosas que la mordida de una culebra.Su mente viajó hacia la nieta. En la calle jugaba Carolina, ignorando la tragedia. "Una luz más del mundo se ha apagado. Pero tu juegas y tu imaginas y tu sigues viviendo.Y mientras tú saltas, se ríen las piedras de la calle y aplauden al ritmo de tu canción. ¡Oh!, ser nuevamente inocente." pensó el hombre, a quien el peso de los años, de las incertidumbres y desgracias habían curvado sus espaldas. ~~~"Creo que fué en esa noche que perdí mi sonrisa. Pero me reía en rincones por mi ridícula locura, rota estaba mi mente." Diciendo eso pareció perder la poca energía que todavía conservara. Dejó caer la mano estirada.El abuelo continuó su historia, cómo si al contarla cerrase por fin un capítulo doloroso. En la comprensión del nuevo amigo, Antonio encontraba también redención. Pasados tantos años cargando una tan grande culpa, no sería tiempo de perdonarse a él mismo? Además Carolina, ahora una mujer perseverante así como ambiciosa, hace tiempo, lo había perdonado. Después de ese día, el abuelo y el farmaceuta tomaron muchos cafés juntos. Ellos lloraron sus miserias, rieron de sus desgracias y encontraron la belleza del mundo en tazas de café y el rostro amable de un amigo. El compañero de muchas tardes incluso persuadió al hombre canoso a comprar un celular, cuando llegó el invierno."Nos quedamos en casa, pero no quedamos solos. El puente para el mundo sigue vibrando en nuestros bolsillos." explicó. Puesto que, Antonio escuchó la voz de su nieta preferida después de 20 años de soledad voluntaria. "El Tiempo que pasó, abuelo, eso no lo recuperamos! El Remordimiento no cambiará nada. Deberíamos aprovechar el tiempo que aún tenemos. Creemos nuevos momentos felices. Te extrañamos. Tu sonrisa, tus abrazos, tus ojos cariñosos, mis favoritos." La cita lo hice llorar lágrimas sanadoras, que rodaran hasta su corazón donde las últimas telarañas de amargura persistieron, lavandolas....

Out Of ReachFirst, a dying nuisance on the other endA much-needed finale to a triad of sufferingSecond, an adventure to the world beyondAll these factories and dilapidated stores toRestore bonds that were withering from nearlyEvery atrocity that existsAs well as adding to the hoard that supports thisUnderground skyscraperMy sense of reality gracefully ruined the barrier,Wearing the same breed of hatred as meWaking up was more angering than usual...
You/I Have FailedSo many blessings swallowed before the gates of creationOpened, leaving only a tale of dread to be told by the oneWho was dragged out and into an incompatible vesselI can't thank you for having a foundation of love readyI can't thank you for teaching the basics of the worldI can't thank you for puberty and growth, sex and heartbreak,Adulthood and opportunities, wisdom and safety, life and deathThe beauty of existence isn't pulsating in my soul, and no oneSeems to understand; walls of dust, seas of spoiled milk, andFears of every nymphs' future...Maybe I added to the blood-flooded canyon, like a warriorWho sacrificed knowledge and intelligence forStrength and toleranceNonetheless, those eyes shrouded the calm chaos in kindnessThat, I will thank you forAgain and again
Life's Symphony Do you want to become part of my symphony my elegy my harmonious nocturne that bleeds forth the rhythmof my heart forever beating in time with the cries of themany souls who i deemed worthy enough to become onewith me.

Tears of Remorse (Remastered)Tears of RemorseRemastered By J.C. SolisI am solemn during daytimeA gloom that always seems to lastAs I sit upon this cold chairIn recollection of my pastI am solemn and heart brokenAnd my heart just will never sateI recount all these dark momentsThese moments that I’ve come to hateAnd as the tears drip down my eyesAs I recall all that I knowAs the room fills with solemn criesAs peace of mind now starts to goRegret and mournful emotionFrom memories that just won’t dieWhat haunts me and my life till nowWhat fleeting moments gone awryI am the result of this painAnd this is the gloom that I shareThis is the reward I have gainedAnd from my life you should bewareAs rum and liquor fill my mouthAs vice and sin now numb my mindI try to put these thoughts at bayTo find respite a little kindThe Mind is not quick to forgetFor the conscience cannot be fooledAs a Good Heart now feels this painThe morals that dictate its ruleI hurt those close to achieve wealthI hurt those close to win my fameAnd for the things that’s happened sinceI am the one solely to blameFor I lost my way and my pathI lost my loving familyAnd now in regretful stuporI am now brought down to my kneesFor there’s a price to pay for thisThere is a price in all we doWe reap the rewards and the painWe either feel happy or rueFor there’s a price for life and timeFor life is not always sublimeThere is sacrifice and a toll What we reap changes on the dimeAnd as you look upon my lifeAnd see my worry, woe, and strifeAnd wickedness my life was rifeAnd plunged my heart with this hot knifeFor Life can give many good thingsAnd they are things to cherish dearThey are such things that bring one joyAnd to our hearts we should bring nearFor regret comes for anyoneAnd no one is quite yet immuneAnd the more wicked things one doesWill bring this bad fate coming soonFor one does wish for the powerTo change the errors that are madeFor when our reckoning does comeThe tolls of our lives will be paidFor now, I wait for death and peaceMy actions my life’s centerpieceAs I hope Hell now gives me leaseThat my mortal regrets now cease…I mourn what it is I’ve becomeAnd I am coming close to dieBut I’ll never stop this weepingNo matter how hard it is I tryI mourn what it is I’ve becomeHoping that this is not my fateA sadness severe, unendingThat never seems to want to sateI mourn what it is I’ve becomeThrough all this time that has now beenAs I try hard to recoverFrom the damage that’s caused by sinI mourn what it is I’ve become That I’ve now driven down this course As I now shed these bloodied TearsFilled with nothing else but Remorse…
Sucks That You're Not GodBroken beauty rocketing out of a conveniently placed mouth;Decades smoldering from contradicting desires among the churchesThere's a world waiting to tear you apart, despite it having done soBefore a single bullet could penetrate the cherryThat's what swallowed the foundations of human nature, birthingA narcissist's cyber-gothic mausoleum; isn't it better to let theProphets rot?After all, you are one and you want death pinned to your callender...Yet you fight it off with moon-shattering stagnationYou're a goddamn enigmaLike a urinating papercutLike a politician who cares about the citizensLike a meat-eating JainistLike a vore artist who kink-shamesLike a demon descending from HeavenI wonder how many façades you'll have onceYou're surrounded by GodJejím následovníkům,When the gems fall and the vultures come to devour herStill-breathing corpse, horde the blessings to offer to eachIncubus who no longer carries the scent of ZionWatch as a true sinner tastes divinityListen to the angels' harpsichords Feel the tremors of righteousnessNirvana will flood the kingdoms
Intolerance Birthed IntoleranceI feel the talons of your past during every sunrise, during every sunsetBut were you really foolish enough to let them taste your bone marrow?When rivulets of Abrahamic faiths flow out of a mouth or manifest on ascreen, you shout at the void that was created by the impure preachers;They tried to burn your sins, but only burned your devotion to GodNot that He'll care, not that He'll punish you for wanting your truest self,Not that He wants you to drown your heart in hatred in exchange for His love,But don't you think there's far more glory in dissecting their beliefs?They say that there's no honor in cherry-picking, but that's one of theRudiments of spiritual revolution; after all, you're just paying for a label...I suppose I envy you, tooYou've embraced the concept of nothingness after the body expires, youHold the pieces of maturity between tattered palms, you can stand againstThe waves hypocritical judgement, and you have stories that are stained withNephilim blood, orphan tears, naga venom, and bleach from several widowsIn short, you've beaten many in a race that most don't even want to startCongratulations on your freedomThough, you could have easily kept the blade away from your third eye
Controlled Burns or Fire-StormLiving in California is not without a price,Nothing ever is.One must pay a price of wildfires and drought,Two cyclical forces natural to the ecology.Controlled burning that would stop fire-storms,Too many people live in a placeAnd a controlled fire cannot cleanse it; peopleWould raise complaints that it’s not safe. Thickets and ditches, they’re thick with dead plants,Dead trees impeding saplings,But there are too many residents who won’t tolerate it;That would threaten houses and countryside.It’s either controlled burning close to housesOr disastrous fire-storms.There’s always a price, a difficult choice to negotiate,Timely negotiation is urgent to us now.Loisgeamh Stamhanta No Doineann-TeineCha thig còmhnaidh air California gun fhiach, ˆ-ˆ--ˆ-ˆ--ˆ-Cha thig gnothach lurach sam bith. ˆ-ˆ-ˆ-ˆ-Feumaimh neach pàigheamh fiach leis an roidean ‘s tart, ˆ--ˆ-ˆ-ˆ-ˆ--Dith’s neart cuairteach dùth don àrainn.Loisgeamh stamhanta gum bacamh doineannan-teine,Tha cus sluagh a’ tàmh air àite‘S chan urrainn teine stamhant’ a ghlanamh; thogamhDaoine gearan nach e sàbhailt’.

The Place I call Home (Poem)The Place I Call Home By J.C. SolisI search for a placeSo dear to my heartI search for this placeSince my journey did startI search for this placeAs I continue to roamI search for the placeI’ll soon call My HomeI explore the vast wildernessThe tall conifers and treesA world so majesticThat is so lively and freeI explore all the perfectionThat was meant to bePerhaps there is HomeThe place meant for meThrough lush and vast plainsFull of thick and green grassDown the river that flowsOf time's future and pastTo uncharted territories And expanses unknownTo a place that I soonWill undoubtedly call HomeI walk through the junglesOf nature and manWith sharp twists and turnsAnd ever changed by human handsI walk through the brambleThe twists and deadly turnsThe area around meI will soon come to learnI’ve met many peopleAnd talked about LifeOur goals and our dreamsOur agony and strifeWe share food and drinkAnd told tales to hearAs we talked of our HomesThe place we hold dearI soon start to wonderIf I’ll ever find that placeThe perfect locationThat perfect, vast spaceMy body grows tiredMy vigil turns weakMy heart aches with worryAs to the place I still seekBut I’ll soon find a placeTo satisfy my mindI make plans to start anewSo long fate is still kindThis is the placeThat will bear my full nameThis is my HomeIn the wilds I will tameI will carve the foundationAnd add brick by brickRaise beams, the wooden frameWhich I plant bit by bitAnd soon I put the roofAnd so, cover the domeI have done it at lastI now have my new HomeAnd when I will do thatI’ll start a familyA bloodline I’ll layAnd have my children wander freeI’ll teach them of lifeAnd what they should beware As we eat juicy fruitAnd breathe the clean airFor now, I roam this worldAnd the danger it holdsA planet so diverse So alive and so boldI search for a place To rest my tired bonesThis place that I will then, --indeed, call my own Home...
The Lights along the Tunnel (Sonnet)The Lights along the Tunnel By J.C. SolisThese are the lights along the Tunnel’s lengthThis is what little remains of my strengthThis is the Tunnel of Life that I liveAnd shadows offer no Kindness to giveFor a lamp shines and gives comfort and lightA shelter from shadows that’re black as nightBut soon the light’s snuffed, I must carry forthTo brave the dark and reach the next light sourceIn this tunnel forth, I can’t find my peaceOnly in the light do I find my leaseFor this is one path, for this is all lifeThe tunnel moves on in both Joy and StrifeAnd only when My Body’s Life is doneWill the light at The End shine what I’ve won…
Sweet Addiction (Poem)Sweet Addiction By J.C. SolisThis Vice that controls mind and soulNow, I’ve come to enjoy its feelThis path I’ve wrought, and Sin I’ve soughtAnd so, my fate is at last sealedThe lovely feel of pleasure fineIts truth will soon become revealedTo live this curse full of RemorseAs from these regrets I now keelJust one more drink or rub or smokeTo help me move along this dayThis pleasure fills my mind with lustA Lust for pleasure, as it mayFor these actions, this dirty tripeTheir price I will soon come to payJust one more drink, one sniff, one touchTo keep these Morbid haunts at bayAn addict of such joyous foulAn addict is now what am IAn addict, so now bound and chainedI will either break free or DieFor this is the tale of my lifeA life that has now gone awryI’ll either break free or sufferAnd through this I begin to crySave me, dear Mother Mercy, pleasePlease help put my stark heart at easeFor I’m a fool, and Vice is cruelPlease cure me of this foul diseaseFor as I walk upon this EarthAnd with my heart with guilty girthI’m an addict of little worthAnd damned since the day of my birthAnd as an Addict I now liveAnd beg for grace, may Mercy give…
Memories (Sonnet)MemoriesBy J.C. SolisWhat Past we cannot leave aloneIn a remembrance of lightFor such nostalgia does come forthAs these Memories come in sightWhat Past both Good and Bad now comeOf remembrance from beforeAs we think back to those momentsThat were either Happy or SoreAnd as the moments flood the mindOf times Cheerful and Not-so-KindWe remember our past of WoeAnd Glee where we start to unwindAnd so, Memories come to forAnd New Ones we now make once more …
DoorsDoors open rapidlybut there is no one thereFeeling of dread and doomFall upon youbut you don’t even careLike a laughter that ends abruptlyLeaving you sad, confused and scaredA breeze drifts by youBut there is no wind in this airEyes gaze upon youVacant, deadly, hollow stareQuiet, tranquil eveningsChaotic, hectic daysThey don’t even feel differentI think they’re all the sameFeelings of traveling to somewhereYou’ve been thousands of times beforeKnowing every word you’ll saybut still saying them once moreFrom a distance the strangers beckon youWith eyes that delve deep into your soulWithout returning the gazeYou know they’ve chained the doorAlone thoughStill safeEverything stops movingNow, all you sense is space I want to lose myselfinside the fog that lingerslazily besideand inside us allI want to melt withinthe winter snowgoing back to where everit goesI want to roll along with the tumbleweedacross the bleakest most barren badlandsOnly a few menwill ever seeI want to float along with the breezeover the highest mountainsSilently adriftabove the turbulent seasI want to findsome placewhereI’ll belongSomewhere safewith no senseof harmWhere I can liveforever,peacefullyWithout the slightesttrace of me...
Mate of Mother MoonThey say she of the moon has no other lover then those who howl and bless her with their cries of loyalty. They say that she dreams of nothing more than her children who were blessed to her by a demon who's inccubitic smile would drive her senses into a heated frenzy that would not cease till both were bloody and panting on the palace floor. Many rumors have circulated around and about she who dwells upon the abyssal face of her lovely luna, yes she who heeds to no other, but he whose identityis only know by the lycan children who he raised.But maybe if you listen closely you will hear my lovelylapin bride screaming my name, as she bares fangs and swallows my heart allowing me to become one with her...
Silver lighttell me sweet child what is it that catches your eye? what is it draws you into the vivid void that surrounds and engulfs us? is it the illustrious stare of the goddess before you or the glow of the dusking sky behind. i wonder if i were to cease to be would you follow me into the folds of oblivion, or would you stay and be entranced by the wonderment of what wonders lie beyond the suns gentle light
Just to look cool When one is oblivious of oblivion, one tends to ignore the destruction that may come with it. They may choose to simply walk away from the fires that rage and the screams to be freed from damnations tiny cageWhen one regrets not the regression of civilization, one tends to notlook back at the progression of the flames that reduce and consume ...consume and reduce with tireless repetition. They though may adjusttheir shades as they continue to move forward with no hesitation.Do you understand what it means to be deaf to the sound of death, oreven mute to the sight of mutilation? How easy is it to walk carelesslyaway from another's pain and suffering, just because its not your own?So when one is senseless to the sense of senseless destruction, one tendsto understand what it truly means to be human. And when they are humanthey can finally accept the facts that they have every tool, and reason to look back but don't cause they want to look cool ....
Northern LightsWhat if the sky was land,If grass grew emerald green,And the stars became fireflies,Unlike earth’s ever seen,If sapphire edged sandy pyrite shores,With silver moonlit waves of blue,Then above ground, but below ether,Would be a home for you,If snowflake crystals replaced clouds,With icy quartz where air thins cold,Glaciers hearts could thaw, would melt,If your hand were here to hold,And if sunsets bloomed as flowers,None could hope to ignore,If autumn glistened ruby, glinted amber,Yet still I’d love you more,Oh it’d bear too much beauty,To be seen in one sight,And if, instead, the land was sky,You’d be a northern light.
a Duet = love+acceptance the harmony of equality blend together seamlessly like the melody ofthe piano keys. Treasuring the symphony of what it means to embraceone another as something more than just friends but lovers on a scalethat is beyond the simple schematics of what humanity is willing toaccept as a truth that had been denied for centuries. When you sit here with me i see one who is not just a part of me, buta part of the world, a part of history. The missing part of this musicsheet that lacks the accents, the sharps and flats that bring interest and joy to life once seen as basic and plain, but i don't want you to think yourself as just my escape from the mundane... no, my friend you are in a musical sense, the rhythm to my blues, thehip that comes before the awaited hop, and i dare say that dirty boithat is always willing to accompany my idealistic pop. Right now youare most likely laughing at the terminology of the following, but in theend nothing really matters except the fact that you are with me.
to hold ones handis it wrong to say that i love you? is it wrong to say i desire this longing fire that burns between us to last forever, tillknife severs our red strings and we fall into the darkeningdepths of eternal slumber? How can it be wrong to wantyour everything to be devoured and digested till you my love become one with me? Is it you fear the ravenous lust that wishes to consume thateverything that the two of us both know belongs to me, to soon become a part of my eternity? Oh my darling do notfear the destiny that has been chosen when you gave me your hand, or better put i took said hand for my own, fori want to hold it placing it to my breast So no mater where you go you can feel my heart beat singing in time with your own reminding you that no matter what you do, or where you may go... i will always be yours.
She who weaves deaths' tapestry I would ask if you know of she who weaves the fated tapestry of onesdestiny? Yes she who quilts with the many souls of her latent harvestconstructing the patchwork, and custom needling that give birth to an image beyond any artist's understanding. I only ask cause i wishto commission such a talent who in hind sight remains irrelevant toeven the highest grade of seamstress. For is it wrong to desire a custom work of those who loved you as much as you loved them? Each soul that worshiped your works and bowed to every word uttered form such tainted lips; fastenedtogether forever hung upon a wall to be adored as they once lovedand adored you? To see, and be where they belonged has always been a dream even though they always knew that where they belonged was with me. But we are speaking of she and not me, so i will ask again of you who may know nothing of we who share in the occupancy as ourtitles of weavers and reapers are known to many but respected byfew, as they say that what we do is bound to the cruelties of a worldthat fails to understand the majestic draw of a well timed birth, a beautiful life and an even better timed demise....

I can’t express my honest thoughts?14:07@ modthebod: @ kai Please refrain from expressing criticism of Sandra. This is your first and only warning.14:09@ kai: …. Whatever, fine.~ ~ ~As he drove, Thomas bobbed his head to the country rock music blaring from the car speakers. He liked weekends, even when it was his shift. Weekends meant that Marsha would be at home, supervising Percy’s studies. He had the whole car to himself, so he could blast any music he liked without having to listen to Marsha’s complaints.Weekends also tended to be more relaxing. Not today though. Thomas sighed and pinched the bridge of his nose. It was too early in the morning to be dealing with complaints and house visits. Catching sight of the signboard off the road, he flicked the turn signal and took a left. The car drifted down the road, past rows of houses and playing children. Thomas watched them wistfully. Give them a few more years and soon, they would be shuttling between extra classes, with their free time being occupied by a tiny mobile screen.He shook his head and turned his attention to the plate numbers on each house. He was looking for number 12 which was further down the road. The neighborhood was not one he came to often, although in his younger days, he would always pop by. His cheeks flushed at the thought.As house number 12 came into view, he sneaked a look past it. House number 13 sat right beside his destination. It looked almost the same as he remembered it - simple and dull. But it was the occupant inside that had his heart pumping like a house on fire. Thomas took a sharp breath. With a quick turn of the steering wheel, he parked the patrol car opposite house 12 and killed the engine. He stepped out, taking in the smell of freshly cut grass. His lips broke into a wide grin and as he strolled through the open gate of house 12, his mind wandered away from his duties. After all, he was right here, next to Sandra’s house. It would make sense to pop by and say hi, right?No, that would make him seem like a creep. Thomas brushed away his fantasies and rapped on the brown front door.Hands held behind his back, he waited. Over the sound of shuffling inside the house, he heard the haunting tune of a piano. The melody drifted from the neighboring house - Sandra’s place. He smiled to himself, enjoying the music, and at the same time, excited to know she was at home after all.The front door creaked open an inch and a pair of suspicious eyes stared at him over owl-rimmed glasses. Thin lips parting in a snarl, the old woman rasped, “What do you want?”“Hi Dina,” Thomas chirped. “Sorry to bother you but-”“Then go away,” she snapped and made to shut the door in his face.Thomas jammed a hand between the door and its frame, his fingers digging into the wood. He held it open and cracked a forced smile.“Please, Dina. I need to speak to you,” he emphasized.The old woman’s strength was no match for his and she gave up, letting the door swing wide open. She sighed in exasperation and crossed her arms in a defiant stance.“Get on it with it then,” she grumbled as she leaned on the door frame.“Ah right.” Thomas recomposed himself and cleared his throat. He clasped his hands at chest level, putting on a polite smile. “I’m here because we’ve received several complaints about the umm… noise level coming from your house at wee hours in the morning. I-”“Oh those blithering fools,” Dina cut in as her hand moved to rest on her hip. “What have they to complain about when they are the ones who blast music and laugh so damn loudly and bring back guests! I’ll say I should be the one complainin-”Holding a palm up to stop her tirade, Thomas tried his best to keep his tone friendly yet authoritative. “I’m sorry about that, Dina. I know that must be frustrating for you but since it’s before midnight, we can’t do much about that. But if you’re having noise from your place past midnight, that would count as disturbing the neighborhood.”The old woman’s cheeks puffed up and she wagged an accusing finger at him. “Now look here, the only reason I’m even making… noise-” She emphasized the word, her tone dripping with sarcasm. “-is because they woke me up first! I’m a light sleeper and I’ve told them oh so many times about it.”Thomas felt the situation slipping out of his hands and he scrambled for a way to appease both sides. “Okay I understand your grievance, Dina. Maybe you can tell me what or who woke you up in the night, and then we can solve all of this.”Dina huffed and glowered at him. She held her silence long enough for Thomas to shift uncomfortably on his feet. When she was pleased that she held the higher ground, she deigned to give an answer. “It all started when that lady moved in next door.” She jerked a thumb at house 13. Thomas’s heart leapt into his throat. He swallowed hard. “What did she do to wake you up?”The old woman scoffed. “Exactly what she’s doing now. Playing that goddamn piano and always repeating some awful tune over and over.”Dina’s derisive tone scratched at his ears. The vein on his neck bulged and pulsed as he attempted to rein in his irritation. He managed a thin smile, his reply curt and minimally polite. “Got it. I’ll talk to her. Thank you for your time.”His cool tone was not lost on Dina. She glared at him for a few seconds before hissing, “You’d better.”When she slammed the door in his face, Thomas finally let out a long breath. He stalked off her property, his smile morphing into a scowl. He cursed the old woman under his breath. It was no wonder her neighbors complained about her and not Sandra. Who would like that old bat anyway??He slowed his pace as he neared house 13. Upon closer examination, he found the gate closed but not locked. Thomas pushed past it and slipped into the compound. As he walked up to the door, the tinkling sound of piano keys grew louder, calming his anger.The thought of seeing Sandra relaxed the tension in his muscles and his lips curled upwards into a smile. He rapped on the door twice, the sound echoing through the house. The piano playing stopped and he heard her airy voice call out in a singsong manner.Hurried footsteps approached. The front door swung open, revealing Sandra in a baggy tee and shorts, her hair tied back in a lazy ponytail. She broke into a big smile. “Oh Thomas, it’s you!”He grinned. “Sorry to drop in on you unannounced.”“That’s fine.” Sandra waved him off. “So is this an official visit or..” Grinning, she threw him a conspiratorial wink that stained his cheeks pink.“Ah right.” Thomas bumbled and rubbed the back of his neck sheepishly. “It is official actually.”“Are you going to arrest me or something, Sergeant Thomas?” Sandra teased, sticking her tongue out.He laughed and shook his head. “Nothing of that sort. It’s just that umm..”He cleared his throat and assumed a more official tone. “Your neighbor complained of piano playing in the wee hours of the morning. So I’m sorry to have to tell you but it would be good for all parties if you refrained from doing that.”Her expression changed into a blank look. Thomas winced and quickly added, “I know it doesn’t sound fair to you - I mean it’s music and all. But some people might not find it pleasant. Not that I don’t- I mean I like your music and-”“It’s Dina, right?” Sandra interrupted with a sigh, her shoulders slumping. She rolled her eyes and shook her head in exasperation. “I tried to play as softly as possible. Looks like it didn’t work.”Thomas grimaced. “No it didn’t. Maybe if you change your schedule a little..”“I write my songs whenever inspiration strikes.” She folded her arms across her chest. “It just happens that I get them in the night, or when I’m asleep.”“Oh.” Thomas deflated, at a loss as to how he was going to solve this issue. His eyes darted to the ground in search for an answer that wasn’t there. At the sound of a light-hearted chuckle, he looked up.“Alright, alright,” She said behind a mouthful of giggles. “I’ll help you out here. I won’t play my music past midnight. That should solve your problem.”His chest heaved as he expelled a long breath and whistled. “Oh thank you, Sandra. You’ve no idea how much trouble you’ve saved me.”“Well, how are you going to repay me for this favor?” Sandra cocked her head to one side, soft bangs covering her twinkling eyes. Thomas’s eyes widened. Color tainted his cheeks. “Umm.”Damn. Here goes nothing.“Would dinner and drinks be enough?” he blurted.A grin tugged at her lips. She laughed, one hand cupping her mouth as she nodded. “Yes, that would be good.”The young man broke into a wide-toothed smile and bounced on his feet. “Great! I’ll see you at the pub at 7?”“See you at 7 then.” Sandra smiled.Thomas waved goodbye before she closed the door. He stood there for a moment longer, savoring the victorious feeling. Then, he turned around and strolled out of her front yard, closing the gate behind him. His face lit up like a thousand watts, exuding a warmth that matched the surface of the sun.As he headed to his car, he felt like he was floating on cloud ten - fuck cloud nine. Buoyant and exuberant, there was nothing that could bring him down on this wonderful morning. Nothing at all.
Devil's Triangle - Virtual Takeover 4.4Loud dance music boomed in the small pub, drowning out the scatters of conversations. Working people and some college-level kids dominated the population. Most were dressed casually; some of the working stiffs were still in shirts but with loosened ties. Thomas had already changed his uniform into loose-fitting pants and a checkered shirt. No point sticking out like a sore thumb and attracting attention, when all he wanted was a relaxing conversation to destress.“Tell me honestly, Thomas. Is it wrong of me to fantasize about Lynn?”Thomas paused, his lips brushing the rim of his beer mug. He regarded his half-drunk friend with concern and sighed. “It’s not exactly wrong.”Across the table, his friend took another swig of his beer and belched. “It’s either a yes or a no. You’re with the police, so you should know.”“Oh wait,” he paused before laughing. “I just rhymed!”Thomas placed his mug down and massaged his forehead between thumb and forefinger. “Albert..”“Okay okay fine. I won’t ask.” Albert scowled, his thick lips pursed in a pout.Thomas watched as his chubby childhood friend dug his fingers into the basket of fries and stuffed a few into his mouth. He noted that Albert had put on a little weight in recent months, but he had no heart to tell him that when he was drunk. Although his looks weren’t exactly a head turner, Albert still held some amount of friendly charisma that attracted quite a few ladies. But the single man had his heart set on Lynn for some time now, and even though Thomas had tried to introduce other women to him, it had not worked out.Well, then again, Thomas reasoned morosely, he was one to talk. So as a good friend, he listened and soothed as best as he could.Seeing that Albert was still sulking away - evident from the silence and the fact that he had just pulled his hoodie over his head to hide his sullen eyes, Thomas tried to reinvigorate the conversation. “So what happened with Lynn? Obviously something did, since you’re asking me that question.”Albert eyed him from under his hoodie as he munched on the fries. He took his time, licking his fingers and downing another gulp of beer, burping as he did. Then, he leaned back on the worn leather bar seat. “I bumped into her the other day,” he said. “She said she was going to take up a part-time job in the night.”Thomas lifted an eyebrow. “Money issues?”Raising his hands, Albert shrugged. “I don’t really know. I mean, maybe it’s something to do with Mark’s job.”“Why? What’s wrong?”Albert leaned forward, placing his elbows on the wooden table as he did. He gestured conspiratorially to Thomas and lowered his voice as he spoke. “Our company is investing more in automation. So grunts like me and Mark will be the first to get-” He drew a finger across his throat. “Laid off.”Eyes widening, Thomas’s grip on his mug tightened. Following his friend’s hushed tones, he whispered, “Is that just a rumor or something? I mean, they can’t do that… can they?”“Oh they can,” Albert tossed back his mug and wiped the residual froth from his lips. “It’s just a matter of time really.”Thomas mulled over this piece of news as he swirled his finger over the condensation coating his mug. He never thought things like artificial intelligence and robots would ever infringe on people’s lives to such a devastating extent. And yet here it was, replacing people whose skills were outdated. Was a future like that in Terminator really inevitable?“I doubt Mark will lose his job though.” Albert’s voice cut into his thoughts. “Why not?”Bitterness seeped into Albert’s tone. “He and the boss are close. Mark’s son and the boss’s daughter are classmates. So yeah.”Thomas tipped back his mug to savor the last bit of beer. The bitterness warmed his throat, a stark contrast to the feelings that roiled in his stomach. The world was unfair, no matter what he did as a policeman to bring justice, and it made him feel helpless.He tried to recall who Albert’s boss’s daughter was and then it hit him. “Ah! That would be Valerie’s sister right? The quiet, timid one.”“Yeah,” Albert drawled. “The dull, studious one.”That would make sense, Thomas thought. Mark’s son was also the quiet type, so the two of them would fit together. “Are they like… together or something?” Thomas asked.“I don’t know. They’re close, I think.”Nodding, Thomas stroked his chin. He could barely recall Valerie’s sister’s name, much less how she looked like. He only knew she was completely different from Valerie. Thinking about Valerie reminded him of that incident in the police station.“Hey, Alby,” he addressed his friend by his nickname. “I just met that Valerie the other day actually. At the police station too, of all places.”“Wow really?!” Albert gasped, his mouth open wide. “What did she do?”“She made this scandalous video of Sandra and posted it online.”Clicking his tongue, Albert shook his head in disapproval. “Kids nowadays. I don’t think her parents have any control on her.”Thomas crossed his arms on the table. “Probably not. She was always the wild kid.”Albert took a few more fries and wagged them about like an adult telling a kid off. “Honestly that was her parents’ fault. They’re both workaholics - no time to spend on a kid. Let alone two.”Thomas frowned. “But look at her sister. She turned out fine, right?”The chubby man chuckled as he shook his head. “She’s anything but fine. That girl’s an exploding time bomb, mark my words.”Opening his mouth to protest, Thomas thought better of it. He was too tired to get into an argument about parenting and wayward kids. Instead, he waved a hand in dismissal and laughed. “Fine. Anything you say, Alby. Let’s just drink away our troubles tonight, okay?”Albert grinned and lifted his mug in a toast. “Sounds good!”“What should we toast to?” Thomas asked, his mug lifted high.Albert hummed in thought. “To unrequited love?”“Wha-what?” Rubbing the back of his neck, Thomas blushed.Snickering at his friend’s reaction, Albert teased. “Oh come on. You with Sandra, me with Lynn. Just say it, man!”Thomas’s lips lifted upwards in a sheepish grin and he snorted. “Fine, fine. You win this time.”“To unrequited love!”...
Devil's Triangle - Virtual Takeover 4.3
To say that she liked Lynn’s cooking was an understatement. Sandra was mightily impressed with her friend’s prowess in the kitchen and a tad bit jealous, if she were to admit it. But either way, she thoroughly enjoyed the variety of dishes.
As she bit into the crispy skin of the chicken leg, she moaned in pleasure. “This is really too good, Lynn.”
Lynn giggled. “Eat here more often and you’ll put on weight,” she teased.
“Mark, you’re lucky to have Lynn cook for you everyday,” Sandra said, her voice slightly muffled by the food in her mouth.
She grinned at the man, fully expecting him to agree and voice his contentment. But when he returned her smile, she caught a flicker of anger in his eyes that brought on a chill in her bones.
“Today’s dinner is considered special actually.” Mark tossed a side glance at his wife. “Normally we have leftovers or sometimes, she doesn’t even cook.”
Devil's Triangle - Virtual Takeover 4.2Sandra scrutinized her reflection in the car’s rear-view mirror, checking her makeup and hair. She bit her lip and exhaled softly. It was just a dinner, she reminded herself. Yet her heart thumped ferociously in her chest, betraying her inner feelings.
She took one more look in the mirror, smoothed the wrinkles in her flowery skirt, and killed the car engine. Dumping the car keys into her clutch bag, she got out of the car and crossed the road to the quaint little yellow house at the corner of the small neighborhood.
The gate was open in anticipation of her arrival, so she strolled right through, admiring the vibrant flowers in the garden as she did. She came to a stop at the front door, taking a deep breath as she tugged on the long sleeves of her colorful blouse. Feeling much like a young girl on her first date, she puffed out her cheeks before assuming her practiced smile.
Her hand reached out and pressed the doorbell once. She heard the melody reverberate through the house an

The ViewMore than 1,000 feet above, Bushy pine tree crowds, Sun rises off peaked mountains, But sun sets on pale clouds. All the birds sing songs of freedom, As the air blows thin in height, Where these late night dreams have fallen, Up from the world in flight. They say the sight will steal your breath, Light a fire in your stare, And prove that even sparks burnt out, Only need some air. So don’t let gravity bring you down, Before you touch the blue of the sky, In proof to earth heat rises Without wings to fly. Cause your ribs cage a flame flickering, A fierce dance of wind whirling fire,While those early morning wishes are lifting, Higher and higher. So stretch your arms up for the stars, If that’s something you dare to do, And when they call “Don’t look down!”- My god, you’ll love the view....

detangling dangerous circuitryat the beginning
I was innocent
I believed I was strong
I believed I was secure
I believed I was a protector
I believed I was an advocate
I believed I stood for righteousness
I believed I stood for justice
I believed I stood for healing
I believed I stood for the weak
I believed I stood for the helpless
I believed this would never change
I became the weak
I became the helpless
to all the pain that I witnessed
to all the cruelty I saw committed
to all the indifference and even prejudice
my voice started out strong and diminished to a silence
I was silence by all of the
the strong opinions
the negative thoughts
the active gaslighting
my voice died a slow cruel death
my soul screamed
and I could remember a message from King that said
that those that stand by are just as guilty of the perpetrators
and I knew I was guilty
the guilt ate away at me
my happiness corroded
rotten on the inside
but happiness remained intact on the outside
Three Hearts EclipsedThree Hearts Eclipsed
– a love triangle ballad –
I met him some years ago,
his sea eyes sung my heart;
my skin was soft, his eyes aglow –
we couldn't bear to be apart.
The golden light of new love,
the beauty of the stars,
surrounded us – below, above –
our hearts as red as Mars.
But then he spoke of another,
her eyes – blue as sapphire;
a first love, his former lover,
the water to our fire…
Three years they'd danced in dreams
and then it fell apart.
Three years then had passed between
till my love warmed his heart.
True to me he thought to be,
he loved me well, and so did tell:
only she, a friend would be…
And thus his loyalty did sell.
Hemispheres divided us –
I knew of her and she of me…
But we could not predict the gusts
of his summer-winter breeze.
Many holidays he made,
far away and overseas...
And for our love I always prayed
that he would keep the keys.
Weeks and months and years flew past,
Writers' Workshop: FOUND POETRY!Welcome to the first workshop of 2015! *confetti*
Hi, I'm PinkyMcCoversong. You can call me Emily. I write all kinds of poetry, but one of my favorite styles is found poetry. So, for the next few weeks, I'll be guiding you through the world of found poetry. Using found poetry techniques is not only one of my favorite ways to write, but it's also a way to give yourself a creative kick in the butt when you're having a hard time revving those engines.
This workshop might be a bit different from previous workshops because 1. there's a LOT to be had in found poetry and I want to give you a taste of a few different methods and 2. I'm hoping that each participant can send us three to six different pieces based on three different featured methods, which I'll describe below.
Erasure How-To is now up!
Love is...That dusty, old board game on the highest shelf -
Impossible to reach until we are tall enough.
Or perhaps, until a step stool is used? (Alas, however, that is blind ambition!)
But once we are tall enough, and we grasp it,
We find that some parts are broken,
Some parts are missing,
And the instructions are nowhere to be found!
We still play the game.
