Feel the bite of silver against your skin
You've welcomed back the steel again
Relapse
feel the sting of alcohol down your throat
Forget your pain as you begin to float
Relapse
You tried to run for so long
But you couldn't stay so strong
Relapse

My regulars

..

A cup of hotly brewed tea
with a menthol roll
sitting on an ash tray
beside my widely opened book
of a guilty pleasure promise

Day dreaming of a cold weather
with pine trees covered in white softness
and a
waft of cinnamon
mixed with baked floured ginger

In your presence, I become curious.
Alone, with thoughts of you I ruminate.
An infatuation so infectious.
Oh, how you make my life illuminate.
All I ever hear from you is silence.
What makes you so reserved, timid and shy?
Oh what I’d give to make your acquaintance.
So I listen and wait when you are nigh.
A quick connection of the eyes, a glance.
Your acknowledgement I’m barely given.
So strong is my desire for a chance.
Allow me your love and to you I’d run.
When will a mutual feeling flourish?
No confidence that I’ll gather courage.

If I can stop one Heart from breaking
I shall not live in vain
If I can ease one Life the Aching
Or cool one Pain

Or help one fainting Robin
Unto his Nest again
I shall not live in Vain.

Her eyes express longing you cannot fathom
You try so very hard to cross that chasm
Knowing nothing else matters but reaching her
You dream of the day that connection will occur
She is something you can't and won't define
She is the definition of what you need
In the distance a hazy and vague outline
And somehow because of her your soul is freed
You miss her though she was never truly yours
As from your open mouth your broken heart pours
Words that try to capture that image so faint
She is a picture you could not ever paint

Just a little scrawl from the other day.

We can make our world
much more beautiful
if we just love
instead of constantly
trying to figure out
whether the other person
loves us or not.

at your most comfortable
was the most beautiful

sight these sore eyes ever
laid eyes on

and I carry that with me

I long to see
once again,
walls in rubble on the ground

unnecessary
as times wears all things down

skin showing
fears floating to the surface
up, up above dark depths
of things unknown

your hair, matted
but beautiful
a storm cloud,
a flash flood crashing
and flowing down your
collarbone &
across your breast

Motherearth even slows its
spin when hair hangs long

I've seen this begin
after so many ends

but black&blue; eyes
droopy &sorrowful;
still twinkle as pretty
ghosts floats by

the perfume is permanent,
& as prevalent as the
cloud of smoke that follows
me as I go along

shaking arms will
will embrace
the emptiness,
when it comes home

lovely night
