TomorrowThe back of the bench digs into my back a little as I lean into it. I tilt my head back and stare up into the canvas of the night sky. The stars flickering like stones in a river of ebony; I reach my hand up to try to pluck one from its bed. My empty hand stares back at me as I draw it back in. I exhale slowly, my breath steaming against the evening’s chill. My path forward is dimly lit by the sparse street lights. Groaning against my burdens, I push myself up from the bench and begin the journey home.Only the muffled echoes of my trampling feet reverberate in the barren streets. Here and there, the dim lights of people’s homes cut back against the encroaching night. It’s only a short walk back to the main street, but I take my time. Lately, my life has been nothing but a coursing river, blatantly surging through its course. Now it seems like everything has come to a crashing halt. I tap a cigarette out of the pack I pulled from my pocket. Putting it to my lips, I ta
EdgeThe edge of the blade is scratching in the back of my mindAnd I’ve not got the strength to fight it for long.As I sit in this midnight, betwixt sun and moon,With a waning outlook for brighter horizons.I’ve lodged myself in tomorrow’s regretsWhilst I wallow in self depravityFor I’m no better the king than the fool,Alone in this world I cannot abdicate.
Thoughts AloneIt looks like a feather and weighs as much as a mountainCrushing me with its delicate embraceTwisting me in spirals of the deepest bluesLocked in a confine of my own designUnder these amber suns and periwinkle skiesLeft to wander between the shadows of giantsI’m lost to memories and footnotesJust a rewound shade in the VCRYour dial-up tone rings in the silenceAnd the operators hung up on meI’ll find no solace in this digital embraceBut this sensual world is no home to meSo let the tape run to its endAnd don’t rewind what has passed
Universe in a Rabbit HoleI torture myself with your visage,Just to remember that I’m alive.I saw galaxies in your burning eyes,While you only saw my passing ghost.I remember laughing at all those corny jokesBut now the laughter only brings tears.As I watch you from this escapable distanceShare your smiles with someone new.I want to explore a new universe,One where I never let myself fallDown this rabbit hole of attractionDown, down, down...
PathwaysThe bells have rung, the day is doneYou walk this road, a lonely one.Upon the cracks and broken stoneThese feet of yours will take you home.The silent sun is resting now,And the stars begin to shine.That music singing in your earsWill heal that broken heart one day.And the demons you kicked outAre as silhouettes on this winding road.These shadows of a different you,A darker past that's coming through.The road ahead is silent,Through this dreary countryside.Where the passing lights are blinding,And the night sky shines with memory.
Snap Freeze I could never remember a time that I felt so cold. Even the deepest winter didn’t chill me like this. It hit me so hard my heart stopped for a moment. I just stood there, looking on as you slowly melted into the horizon. They say that pain burns you at its worst; but this, well… this felt like a snap freeze. It was mid-June that day… I waited for you at the café just around the corner from your house. The sky was awash in gray and white, like it knew what was going to happen. I waited at the café for hours but you never showed up. I called your cell but it went straight to voicemail. A million thoughts raced through my mind that day, a million ways that everything had fallen apart. It started raining when I finally left. It was slow and steady, neither angry nor cold. I made my way towards your house. I can still remember the flowers that we planted in the beds just off your front door. Their deep hues of blue and pink still hold the same meani
An Ode to Autumn LoveThe wind plays gently with Autumn's first falland the sun kisses a lucid blue sky.My mind wanders back a way,to a place in time not so long ago.It rained that day with a thunderous rapport,the world was awash in black and grays.As I traveled through this bleak and dreary worldMy heart ached with longing, my mind bitter, cold.I'm wakened from my deep forlorn thoughtsby a delicate touch, a wistful look.Yet, when my eyes meet with yours, my enchantress,a thousand storms could not displace me.Through the stars I've traveled, awake and in dream,seen the wealth of beauty they hold.They cannot compare to your fairy-like grace,here on this earth, here in this moment.On this altar of granite and stonewe stand as one, hand in hand.Where before the stars of this heavenly sky;an ancient vow we shall exchange.No longer do I dwell in the past's dark, dreary days,where only the pain of loss remains.Here, in love, under this lucid blue skyPlaying with Autumn's first fall we shal
Memoirs of HomeThere’s a house on the hill, against the horizon,That’s weathered and battered as time only knows.A family once lived there, behind those walls,Joyful and loving as any family could be.Now, only the mice live behinds its cracked plaster.The yard was once kept with a loving touchGnarled trees and ramshackle shrubs only remain.In the garden are roses of such vibrant hues,A trace of the days now nearly forgot.Her halls once echoed with jubilant laughter,Where only the winds sad song is now heard.Some pictures still hang in crooked, shattered frames.Quick glimpses into memories left lingering in time.Left behind as a epitaph to better days.Her roof collapsed in a spot or two,Rafters peeking out like skeletal fingers.On the eastern wall a palisade of ivy growsShielding the wall as the sun bears down.Sometimes, if you look on as the suns time knells,You may see a girl watching from a window.Her hair is braided and tied up with bows,A quiet look of melancholy
UntitledHere we stand; an impasse for you and me.Lost in letters written by shaking handsBattling hearts to clouded to see,Unable to believe the truth in front of us.Long have we sought this dreary road,Traveled by others greater than we.Yet we stray, swayed by promises of betterWhen the best is set before us.Under crescent moon and wolf song,Wandering through the darknessSearching for the light in firefliesWhen it burns in our love’s embrace.Yet, fate seems to enjoy our lamentTied, yet separate, as puppets of flesh.Forever to dance in this twisted opera.Together… but perpetually apart.
Remember the Angel?Remember the angel that wiped your tears and made you brightly smile?You always told her to let you be; you were always in denial.Remember the angel that sang you to sleep and played with your hair?You never cared to have her near you, though that smile was still thereRemember the angel that waited for you, the one who waited countless hours?You never seemed to even notice, I guess that was your powerRemember the angel that saved your life, risking also her own?You ran away and left her there, you left her there aloneRemember the angel that fell from heaven, only to be with you?You marked her with your sin and made her feel brand newRemember the angel with crystal eyes and long white hair let down?You see how she feels alone; do you see that awful frown?Remember the angel, please remember her now, can't you feel her love?All of that was only for you , sent from aboveRemember the angel, don't you remember the angel,

Hades and PersephoneHe gazed with such intensity,A daunting figure clad in coal.His armor stiff, like frozen hands,Enthralling claws to clutch her throatOr softly grace her blooming cheeks.Hesitant introspection fellOn snow from which her flowers grow.Her hair, a tangled wave of ocherUnveiled a visage so benign,Of blinded wishes unawareAlluring to the starving night.Her body lay, sweetly with snow,A nonchalance of threats and sin,Accompan’ing the monochrome scene
One-Shot: Thomarie nuestro primer besoThomas PovNunca imagine que el momento que tanto esperé fuera así, tan inusual, sin planear nada, solo así sin nada; no salió como me lo esperaba; todo fue único y especial. Me sorprendió que aunque fuera un accidente lo valoro tanto; no sé si tú lo valores tanto como yo este momento; aunque fue accidental para mí fue muy especial.Aún recuerdo ese caluroso día de verano el cual el calor rebasaba los límites, estar con gabardina no era una opción, el calor me obligaba a usar ropa ligera la cual jamás pensé usar aun siendo verano, todo culpa de la pelirroja solo por querer rebasar los límites de la física por intentar hacer un arcoíris, pero en vez de eso la máquina exploto lanzando un rayo al sol haciendo que este se acerque un poco más a la Tierra y el calor aumentara, nuestros padres trataron de arreglarlo, pero el rayo fue demasiado fuerte por eso no lo revertieron claro
Sravana VarsaI'm broken branchesin forest trencheskeeping you safe throughout warI'm hidden rain-songslyrical diphthongtrembling by the cooling shoreThe sky is runningwith ghost clouds gunningat the clueless masked lovebirdsThe moist earth swells upfilling leaking cupswith our fruitless crippled words Candlelight flickersleave souls to witheras my bones set in for nightPrevernal daydreamsundone at the seamstease you and wind you up tightMy hair is guided by the sea's deep sighsMy skin is summoned by the auburn glowWe took a vow to live without goodbyesMy hair is guided by the sea's deep sighsI hear bells resounding like last July'sAnd so by another trench shall I goMy hair is guided by the sea's deep sighsMy skin is summoned by the auburn glow
SubwayThe chug-a-lug churning of trestle trains -sulfur spewing in darkness and dusky domainswheels whipping wildly - sonorous sounds,hurtling haphazardly and grazing the ground.While cars carelessly trace the track,passengers patiently bracing their backsand daydreaming about destinations.
All AloneI'm sitting in my four walled roomThey're closing in, like an ancient tombI feel like I'm wasting time for twoWhen all I want is me and you
