Stagnant

 
I think I’ll sit and wait for it to rain.
I doubt much will come of it.
A few dark clouds, some thunder maybe?
A lake cares little, about a few drops.
The gods care little for the insignificant.
Yet we foolishly think lives matter.
Who needs water, when clouds cry?
An hollow vessel?
A desert mirage?
 
A soul is empty when the spirit dies.
Homeless creatures seek solace, inside a carvern of wants.
Grasping onto nothing makes loosing seems easy.
Dried blood, on bended knee.
Falling down only breaks bones.
Strength is what defines the weak.
Why get up, if crawling works just fine?
To search for hope?
A desire to stand on feet?
 
To break the heart, one must break the mind.
Foolishly forgetting locks have keys.
Trampeling through doorways, we stumble over needs.
Always searching for tomorrow, incandescent dreams.
Slowly wasting time, chasing Idiolic things.
Captured inside a web, spun from disbelief.
Why leave the cage, when abilities are extinct?
Any chance for survival?
A need to be complete?
 
When reality shatters, it melts like broken glass.
Incessant memories form illusions, casting today into the past.
While seeing false perceptions, time drips into the cracks.
Endlessly going nowhere, strapping burdens on our back.
Like sand looped in an hourglass, always feeling trapped.
A mermaid washed on shore, wrapped in fishing nets.
Why chase shadows, knowing only you are left?
Looking forward to tomorrow?
Leaving no regrets?

Regrets

349770A2-BF3C-4F3D-B747-40AF3AD9519C

Maybe one day I will regret this.
I might think, what a fool,
To trip over hearts, letting mine break.
What a stupid thing to do.
I might wish on a star
My tears won’t fall
So carelessly on deaf ears.
Only to find, I’ve been so blind
Feeling alone all these years.

With careless words we throw daggers.
Hitting targets, fresh marks, old scars.
Like a loop that won’t forget,
We play time like a fiddle.
No rhyme, nor reason.
Mudslinging can be fun…
Till the grit settles and you’ve torn your soul
That’s when kindness comes
To sooth the wreckage.

Broken

I thought of a thousand words,
None came out.
Like burnt rubber,
Dry as charred toast
I chocked on letters,
As if nails lined my throat.

I swallowed my brokenness.
My neck bent, heavy from the crown.
I would walk away with nothing,
My loses came with the bet.
Decisions filled with consequences.
Angel wings dipped in tar.

A land filled with no mercy
Only the Strong survive.
Borrowing time, on make believe promises
Digging shallow graves,
Full off tear stained loved
Vultures stay circling low.

Once there was love
Now a hollow soul.
Dust settles over all things
Letting wounds heal.
The only thing now is letting go…
So I cling tightly, while I cry myself to sleep.

Shipwrecked

209A1BDE-0668-4685-AD43-462DD3A8416D

Right then it shattered.

Like splintered glass

Veins cracked open.

Heartache leaked out.

 

Nothing is right,

In those moments of sadness.

Earthquakes are startling

All stability is questioned.

 

Running seemed like an option.

Pain stealing Time from Distress.

Seeing no way out,

Drowning entirely on air.

 

Gasping did not help

Tears would not stop the ache.

Torture became me,

Like a blushing bride, I wept.

 

For the sorrows,

Years of rips between us.

Piles of blanketed fears

Always sweeping under rugs.

 

Time is all you have, they say.

Always underestimating quicksand.

Treasure chest locked up tight.

Rapids of distress wrecking havoc.

 

A ship wrecked, plundered,

Splayed upon a casket shore.

It’s guts laid out for all to see,

Longing to be buried.

Master

It’s Paper,
It’s Plastic,
This world…
Money is it’s Master.

It will buy you Trips,
It will buy you Toys,
Give out Broken Hearts,
Stealing all your Joy.

Tears don’t count as quarters.
Sorry’s don’t make change.
So when you want a refund,
Say the Master’s name…

$$$ MONEY $$$

Captured

C8FFA27E-7643-48BD-86EC-3915BE092910

I was touched by something,
I just don’t know what it was…
Like fog over a meadow
Like the need to chase a storm.

I saw forever frozen,
Captured tightly in a dream.
Desire slowly shattered us,
Leaving broken pieces lying around me.

The wind whispered,
“I know all your secrets
…shhh! Everybody talks.”
Gossip changes like the weather,
Fools break hearts
Love gets lost.

Tears felt like strangers
Falling down on my sheets.
I saw your soul,
Love expanded,
I lost my breath,
Pure fire overwhelmed me.

It almost broke me
The knowing,
… all the greatness we could be.
I was standing on a ledge
Screaming for Death to challenge me.

We were Everywhere and Nowhere
Embraced tightly in a Diem,
Demanding the whole World
Bow down on It’s knees.

Blood, Tar and Feathers
… but you truly loved me.
And I knew right then,
Nothing mattered
…Only you
…Only me

When I ask the Raven,
“What do you see?”
I did not want the answer.
I have enough sorrows torturing me.

I saw my hopes and dreams
Swallowed up by desire,
Burning on a glass sea
Now only shadows follow me.

In that moment…
I glanced over and through,
I imagined the end
All I saw was you.

This time the Raven ask me,
“What is it that you see?”
A kaleidoscope of memories
Tumbled over me.

All I could imagine was feeling forever,
Your hand in mine,
Time standing still,
Your smile in my eyes.

Right then I told the Moment,
“Stand still, Watch, You will see!”
This will be my ending,
…Only you.
…Only me.

Self-Destruction

 

I hate this world.
I hate this place.
Everything is out of order,
It needs to be replaced.

Broken.
Mis-shapen.
Haphazard.
Mistaken.

Cold.
Lonely.
Misunderstood.

All the goods been replaced.
All the bad’s overlooked.

Always: wrong, wrong, wrong.
Always: right, right, right.

The world will tear itself apart,
Fighting, for the right to die.

Wonderland

 

Walking through Wonderland
Alice tiptoed into Words.
They came falling down around her
Like forever,
Like she’d been here before.

Time was endless.
Time was short.
A world of contradictions
Lies wrapped in pearls.

They fit together perfectly;
Words filling empty holes.
Night slowly melted
Sweetly stealing her soul.

Sadness

image

Through sadness I see the timeline of my heart.
A constant aching need.
Searching for love my soul’s forgotten.
A Journey of Tears.
Trials of Pain.
Moments fade away,
Time passes…
My broken heart remains.

A reminder of pieces taken,
Nothingness filled the Void.
No rewind button.
Nowhere to go.
Only forward.
The movie’s been made,
Watching only reminds me how I’ve failed,
Over
….and over again.

It never gets easier.
Looking back seems numb. … and farther away.
Time Capsules filled with Shattered Dreams.
A Landfill consumed with Empty Promises.
Warp Zones leading Nowhere.
Running on Bended Knees.
Breaking Hollow Bones.
