I no longer have the need to draw with silver..
But I long for the feeling of crimson red paint..

Can't get anymore poetic than that..

Imaginary friend,
indefinite existence of events,
hoping to be reversible.

ride never showed up
boss not answering
guess I'm not working today

Every color,
every perspective,
every  triumph,
every defeat,
every me,
and every you —
lies in the mirrors
of this kaleidoscope.

I have spent much time
on daydreaming,
I forgot things
I should have written,
words I supposed to pen
in the blank space,
are now gone —
gone as the night sleeps.

Becoming unknown,
from those fantasies I built,
the heart speaks —
when lips unvoiced by guilt,
for those lovely words
were now forgotten by time,
forgotten by my mind,
forgotten by the night.

A guy and his gal were abed,
when she looked over at him and said,
"The way your penis is bent
is my only lament."
So sideways they did it instead.

And with the first showers
Comes the kind of sadness
Which only half loved lovers
Can feel.

Just the brain
telling tales
we are helpless
to resist.

a spool of heart's thread
pulled taut just for you
tie a knot and watch it break

a man all a-rush...
he's not a man who can wait;
perhaps he should try
