Literature
Untitled
And im here to say goodbye
To the people I once knew
And the people they will become.
I set forth on a new journey
An adventure of sorts
In hopes of inspiring
Eradicating, and amending
who I am
And who I want to be.
To arise with new conclusions,
From all the answers I still cant understand or begin to fathom.
(Some of which I probably still, never will.)
I am here to dash away at my own exceedingly unreasonable dreams,
And the expectations I had for them.
Where meeting you at the terminal would have been a promise kept.
Or enlisting would have been my first priority.
Today is the day where I no longer-

Now parted
My love for you is
A cold winter night
My hands grasped at my sides
Trying to figure a way
To divide
You smile so politely
And I reach out
Only to find
A chilled breeze
Where you used to be.

Inevitable
Crawling in
The serpents den
I find myself
Incompetent
Screeches through
Thickened sheets
Of layered seams
And casualties
Although I knew
Another draw
Would find me
strewn across
Those egg white walls
I took the venom
With asphyxiated vows
That I could not leave
unrequited

Unrequited Summer
I remember when we were kids
Talks of summer days
And those nights short lived.
You told me you'd teach me
How to Swim into the deep
       And how to breathe.
          How you breathe
The sun goes down
I can see it just beyond your fence
With eyes focused
And
You're calm as you tell me to
hold my breath
Just a bit longer...
"And you're no better at swimming
Then you were in the beginning
But you come over at night
and we practice
all the breathing..."

Breathing
flecks of the rippling blue scatter across my mind
                as I sink far beneath this liquified cage
I can remember the faint smell of your perfume
                and the smile in your eyes
before
you once told me
to
   “hold your breath"
but I can’t    breathe
                             already
as you    disengage
and yet all you say
is    
    “Take it slowly!"
its not you standing there
this is not your heart
as it begins to beat
its not like before
and without forgiveness
the frost begins to take hold
attaching to every particle
          fogging  the  surface
till I can reach you no more
           I’m scratching at the surface
I can’t reach you anymore

The storms you bring about my
The storms you bring about my life
Are usually predictable.
This, too timid in mind, inbounds a fiery soul.
Too usure of what is to be said, I obliged.
With no lyric to guide the stars
Neverland becomes a distant belief.
Can the thought of this be too much to bear?
This... I'm too sure.

Dancing Across The Skies
Dancing across the skies
It is you I wish to find.
Swaying past the twinkling stars
     and through the astroid belt
   
between jupiter and mars.
     I follow the sequence of steps you've taught me.
Never missing a beat
     to the hum of your heart
waiting for me.

7 years ago
I wonder
if it's really been

And slowly I wake
Startled by your appearance
in my dreams
I can't remember

~Uncertainty
You said you were cold
So I gave you my hand

I tried to create

my phone kept
ringing

But I gave in
and kissed your lips
And as we broke
I notice
you
had those same eyes
as before
You tugged at my tie
As you explained
the attention I gave
to you
I realize
it's thats not the same
You referenced a time
With those beating hearts
a constant attraction
And
I knew
I'm not the same

'Put my glasses on, so no one sees me.'
I walk out the front door,
like a ghost into a parlor.
A mess of people.
my mind,
loud feet,
and honking horns
on chalked up pavement.
drowned out,
by wishful melodies.
I stare up at the sky
as it starts to set.
Swimming
through the dark blue.
Every beat like a tick of a clock,
pacing with my emotions.
Through my ears
through my bones,
through my soul.
I watch these stars,
this sky,
like a religion
thinking they're going to give me an answer.
But this sky is deceiving,
and these stars are reluctant,
to show me
a thing.

from an IV
incased inside my mind
Burning like ice

you're toxic
you're bubbling over,
splitting my veins.

suffocation...
Dreams buried
with light
seeping through
a murky window.

Shake it off
Stand up
Your posture is frayed
Your mixed up
fallen off into decay
Watch the puddle
ripple through your heart
"You'll never get it right"
She said
'Just shake it off'
I can see no way here
'And I'm damned if I do,
damned if I don't'

"Each way you turn"
Each way I turn.

I took your picture down
I took your picture down from my wall.
Where it lays in a heap of ashes and snowfall.
I can remember the days from last I heard the truth of our past.
As the hole in the wall grows exceedingly fast.
You took the form of a burning coal.
And singed away at the wall of my soul.
The blazing hold you had on me,
Tangled in golden webs built out of memories.
With no thought I construct a weapon of my own.
And with a body filled with ice I turn to stone.
Now you will never see,
That blazing hold you had on me.

Basil Leaves
I can smell the basil leaves
from the kitchen

The hum of your voice,

With The sweet kiss
from Your lips
                        the dishes are left undone.

Giving Shelter
There's a message in this poem.
Look carefully and you might just see,
I'm here to tell you something.
The cracks in my vision have spread,
Breaking these days to kaleidoscope dreams.
The colors that burn and spin confuse me;
And dark spots laugh as nightmares.
Yet people ask me why it is
That I cling tight to the beauty of a rose,
Keeping it under glass like the Beast.
Is it not clear that I fear myself?
Is it not obvious? Every riddle has an answer.
The fog is a metaphor for something,
A metaphor for the emotion in my words.
Standing here holding a rose,
Staring at an angel's emerald stars,
My heartbeats shake my fingers.
I fear this creature I am; afraid
I might break this flower newly bloomed.
So I stand rooted in the haze,
Sheltering a blossom,
When the daylight is merely a step away.
For the step into sunlight,
Would wither these petals of silk,
And destroy the one true treasure I own.
There's a message in this poem,
Did you catch it?
I'm trying to tell you something.

Lullaby
"I've been waiting my entire life to tell you that I'm dying and I figured I'd finally get it over with.
So here I am, carving forgive me
into my teeth, so every time that I speak
I can still say that I'm sorry.
More years have passed in the last than I care to remember
but I could never forget:
In eighth grade my chorus teacher always told me,
'Michael, you'll never be good enough.'
and it always excited me. It reminded me of my mother.
On the last day of school she smiled,
her teeth jagged like a train wreck,
she didn't say a word,
but I knew exactly what she meant.
In high school I fell in love with a roadside bomb waiting to be detonated by a passing glance.
Every time she blew up,
she'd pick the pieces of herself off of bathroom floors
mixed with the medicine she never needed. She had
The Disappointment.
One day she caught me staring, smiled, walked over, and hugged me...
she smelled like a lonely night.
As she pulled away she looked me dead in the eyes and said,
'Don't worry abou

Apocalypse Now: December 21, 2012
Nine minutes ago I was looking for a girl,
Pushing my way through a crowd
In fear of dancing alone.
That moment was whipped away as glasses fell,
And the voice of death called our attention.
Eight minutes ago my watch stopped.
The solid oak dinner table about which I sat
Lifted from cedar floor boards,
While party guests floated in air like clouds.
The house blew apart like toothpicks in wind,
The stars above me seemed swirled
As my trajectory plowed me into the lawn.
The trees were falling by the thousands,
A forest imploding in apparent suicide.
The christmas ornaments exploded,
Glass grenades into the children's eyes.
The pulsing failed to cease as I dug in,
My fingers buried in moist shifting soil.
Fire fell from heaven like great silks.
Eight minutes ago I experienced heat,
Such heat I'd never felt as my hair burned.
The earth cracked open, there was a great noise,
As the ocean drained and boiled in the core.
Seven minutes ago humanity was lost,
And my life had been taken with the

These relentlessly 
recurring
iron walls
forge this aching pain
separating me,
from you.

These interminable 
fortresses
slowly chiseled away 
by the presence of you.


I await their demise.




~Not really done with that, whatever it is above. Definitely a work in progress, but so far so good. It took me a while to write even that out on paper so, heeyyo. At least I attempted lol~


So, it has been around 3 years since the last time I posted I believe.
I decided to pick up, only because I haven't written in forever.
I also needed a space to go, and here I am again.
If there is some other new place thats good to write, let me know!
