the way by which we follow.

At first sight
it might seem tempting.
But we've been fooled for so long
that neither more we care.

My lucid thoughts
I carry inside the pocket
of an old coat,
because I don't wanna seem a philosopher.

We know how wrong is
the way by which we follow.
But the necessity of locomotion is
what provokes that.

We know how useless is
to look for another exit,
another answer or solution,
even knowing that existing is the solution.

I love the way you write,
Sep 13

I love your penmanship,
it tells about you.
I love the way you write,
your words truly inspire.

I love the way you smile,
it melts my heart, I want to die.

the way he looked at her
Sep 12, 2014

he smiles
when she talks
even about the most unimportant things
his eyes
full of adoration

he brushes
her hair away
as she waves her hands about
describing her day
his eyes
full of love

he slings an arm
around her shoulders
while she walks
along the hallway
next to him
his eyes
full of admiration

the story of love
in the winter
kept both of them warm
or perhaps
it was just
the way he looked at her
like she was the most precious thing ever

it is the kind of love we all wished we had

I want to open eyes, to show others a way,

Where am I going, what do I seek?
Do I truly inherit it all if I'm meek?
And if I inherit all this, the earth,
Do I stay the same or encounter rebirth?
Am I meek if I'm gullible and get pushed around,
Or am I meek if I rise up and stand my ground?
I want to open eyes, to show others a way,
To let them truly see their lives surpass day to day.

your name rings so loudly
in my mind
that i cannot hear anything else

your touch was like a
roundhouse kick to my brain
short circuiting everything inside

your love was like a glacial age
your cold nature
sucked everything in dry

your departure was like a nightmare
one where time is elapsed
and you don’t remember my name -

you don’t like me like that.

*Just across the way*
Apr 22

Hes right there

Shes right there

Just across the way

He looked at me, I hope he didn't notice me blushing

She looked at me, I hope I didn't blush

He blushed when he looked into my eyes

She blushed and I realized that I was blushing too

She smiled at his blushing and giggled a bit

I blushed deeper as she smiled, and I smiled back

He smiled back

She was smiling

I probably looked stupid

But I don't care

I love him

I love her

But he doesn't see

But she doesn't see

I hope he likes me back

I hope she likes me back

This whole thing may have been a bad idea

What if my heart gets broken again?

Stop thinking that

It'll be worth it

That's why you fell in love in the first place right?

In the one way out, I had an easy route,
Jul 4

I hurt,
Myself, when
I have ironed, when
I am wearing this shit out-
When I’m wearing it, inside-out,
To go where, out and be… where it’s
Already been, and already seen with,
…everything it has already been?
I’m wearing it out, inside.
I am wearing out.
I ironed it out.
I’m hurting.
I’m it.

And there was nowhere I’d rather go than when I went, and I felt comfortable, in that.
For nowhere did I ever go, in life, did I feel comfortable in myself.
When they asked about my whereabouts…
Today, on the Fourth,
I went out.
Up to
Past, a barn door
I painted a shy colt, me, by it, passed out
My least red hand, striped it, and I escaped.
In the one way out, I had an easy route,
Find solace in isolation and the dark
Light a candle, then blowing out
Wrapped around the
dry wind tunnel
in that door
a large funnel
bleeds all up into a ball
stands in pubs to scrawl:
To be me, was to be curious takes this place: ‘never felt I could go’
when this someone leaves, I will take a piece of them with me!

was and
therein is
