I WishI wish I knew how to comfort you in your time of need.
I wish I had the right words to say, or at least a strong shoulder to lean on.
But I don't.
And I'm sorry.
I'm small and weak, and the words won't leave my mouth.
Good EnoughI wanted to tell you how I feel about you but nothing seemed sufficient enough.
No song was lyrical enough no matter how smooth the rhymes.
No poem was deep enough to truly express my emotions.
I fear there will never be any words that are worthy.
But for the time being I hope "I love you" is good enough.
By your loveThe idea of spending eternity without you fills me with such grief that I can hardly breathe.
Without you here with me it's as if my heart has decided to beat its last time and then lay still in my chest.
While the rest of me becomes a hallow shell that can only be filled by your love.
WhispersI whispered softly for only your ears to hear as I wrapped my arms around you.
I love you.
More than words can express and with every fiber of my being.
I love you.
All you'll ever needI know that this life may seem so hopeless
but I need you to listen to me and simply focus.
There is nothing wrong with you and there is nothing wrong with me
as long as you have love and happiness that is all you'll ever need.
When no one else is thereWalk into my open arms and fall in my embrace.
I will always protect you here in this special place.
Open up your big bright eyes and grace me with your smile.
Let's talk and laugh like we used to do. My God, it's been a while.
Our love is like no other; of this I am truly sure.
But that does not necessarily mean it is any less pure.
I'll remind you that you're beautiful whenever you forget.
Just find the comfort that you need and let go of past regrets.
I'll guide you through the darkness and show you the way home.
I'll hold you close and comfort you when you feel alone.
I'll catch you when I feel you falling and hold you when you're scared.
I promise that I'll stay with you when no one else is there.
A Letter To My FatherI don't know if I can do this anymore. This constant bickering and fighting is starting to take its toll. I can't keep doing this, you've become so unstable.
I feel like I'm walking on egg shells when you're around. No matter what I do or say you just get angry and storm off. Then I don't see you for months.
One minute we're smiling and laughing, the next we're at each other's throats. You're always yelling and complaining about everything. You blame the world for all of your misfortune. You never actually stand up and take responsibility for your own actions. Mom may have kicked you out when I was 5 but you left our family long before that.
Our relationship is so dysfunctional and I really don't need this in my life. I try to forget about the past and move on, but you are always bringing it up. You try to justify your horrible actions by claiming that "it's just what adults do." I want to hit you with a bat every time those words drip from your mouth.
Responsible adults don't do the s
You call meYou call me a freak
I say I'm unique
You call me crazy
I say sanity is overrated
You call me a sissy
I say I'm sensitive
And proud of it
You call me depressed
I say it's true
But I'm not ashamed of it
Five AMPre-dawn darkness again, seething, quiet
A monster hugging the city
How heavy, how suffocating it is
The clock has run down on time for dreaming
A void between night and morning
Ready to swallow everything up
A time for old men's reflections
On love, and loss, and sorrow
Oppressive black sky, you eat everything
But the all-night diner
Where lonely old men sit
Drinking coffee at five AM
The Boy Who Wouldnt EatIf you can flutter
I have failed you,
for you were not forged
to be so insubstantial as that
You were writ
to be an epic fable
of endings ignored,
of outlasting your body
through the sheer will
of a writers starving heart
through a broken, bowed
but bravely abiding body
that fights the soul
to comprehend Beauty.
QuicksandYou trapped me
Dragged me below the surface
And held me there
You chained me
Put brass around my ankles
And left me struggling
You broke me
Beat me with whips made of hate
And hurt me more
You changed me
Made me who you wanted
And killed me inside
You hid me
Stole me away from the light
And made me blind
You crushed me
Blew my dust in the wind
And danced on my grave
surrounding my body
And now I'm twenty feet under
With no chance of being saved
From Your 'Secret' AdmirerHeaven,
this is not a love letter
I will swear to God,
with a halo on my head
and a hole in my heart.
But the fact is I revere you
more than I have any right to.
After all, we are nothing except
who have awkward conversations.
So why is it that every time the line
falls silent I panic, worrying that your shadow
will make my efforts nothing but a distant memory,
when every word you speak strongly marks my mind?
Simple: I fear having something to lose
and losing the nothing I have. You are a
treasure to me, and this note becomes my confession.
Sincerely- I typed this, but I'm sure you'll recognize the handwriting.
give me a challenge, give me you.i have grown
the blood in my veins
have become more
than plasma, and i
am now trapped
within my own hollowed-out
this haze of
has to be transitory--
i can't let it be anything
Death, Judgment, RebirthLast Time in the ICU
Shadow rats, beady red eyes focused hungrily
Stay still too long and they’ll swarm
Sharp little teeth rending flesh
They know the sick and weak
They can wait
Tenth floor ICU, down with the disease again
He’s resting quietly, the nurse says
She looks like a huge black rat
Does she know what’s happening?
Closing the door
She walks away
Sweet childhood dreams are interrupted
Rats gnawing away at the edges
Toothy little kisses all over
Cleaning, cleansing scurry
Down to the bone
Sentenced to Live
Firelight, poker-faced patchwork man reading aloud
An old but vaguely familiar tome, his tone is somber
Was I one of the wicked? Weren’t we all?
Who can say that they were good?
Sentenced to live yet another life
I cry; I’ve had enough living
I want to sleep forever, leave my shell behind
To crumble to dust, useless, I won’t need it
Every door opens to the same world
Is this hell, then? The onl

that warms my body,
that stokes my heart.

under my shirt.

washes over me,
floods every inch of me.
clinging to your cheeks,
puddling the pillow,

palm to palm with mine,
soft and breathy in my ear,
loud and gasping
against my mouth.

rising to meet me,
applauding in rhythm.

sliding down my chest,
clinging to my skin.

tilting back your chin,
pressing us so close.

trembling in joy,
shivering with delight.

calling out to the universe,
telling me everything.

DistemperOh, did you scream?
No, ninety ravens
released from the rack of my ribs
in a ravage of wings
have disquieted the cat.
Oh, an aspirin for my mind
(lay your head in my hand
drink me down, feather-drown)
thin its belly-close blood

of my hollow-cast heart.
[Fire the dragon

So stout, so ale,
hold fast, touch bone
Oh, you would rather die
than bring home bad meat.
Vivid DreamsThere are moments when my fears seep into my dreams and grip me in my sleep.
They awaken me with a start and pound aggressively on my heart.
I can't understand it and it doesn't make sense, but I feel like I'm balancing on the edge of a fence.
Just one small push is all it should take to remove me from this painful dreamscape.
