Marry me to the dollars that were never mine
to begin with, or end in my divorce from time and bandwidth.
Date me like the daze you're in,
free from Good, but taxed by Sin.
Dump me when you've gotten full,
go fool around with other rules,
and die a loan too short and cruel.
My country says that same sex marriage is illegal
They have put a ban on it and 10 years imprisonment
They have the time to make such decisions
But not the time to put a protection on women
In a country where women feel animals are safer than them
In a country where 3 billions reside
The Supreme Court's decision on 11th December, 2013 has made me believe that elders aren't always right
Even if they think they are
That the government has some deep flaws
That the future of our generation are a bunch of blind sheep following the sherpa
I'm in pain,
But that's alright.
I'm not giving up,
Not this fight
If I stay,
It'll be just fine,
I will get,
What should be mine.
But not so tart,
I taste on my lips,
Each time we part.
I feel it rise,
Deep in my chest,
And I hope,
That It's for the best.
So I take a drag,
And then I give it up,
I blow it to the wind,
I'm hoping for some luck.
Everything's gonna be fine
Just give it some time
It'll be all the same like before
We just need to increase our prayers more
Stay strong because we all are their only strength
And to be with them we will go to any length
Young at heart,
dreaming of a life that could be.
Hides from the real world,
believes in fairytales,
Frolics within the confines of her own flawless world
Ignoring the warnings and vices of the world.
Wishes to never grow up,
Feel free and limitless forever.
Doesn't fit quite in with her age,
Doesn't go for the adventure, excitement, risks,
Feels like she's trapped in the 21st century,
Trying to wrap her mind around
The fast paced life and sleepless nights.
Wonders when her age will catch up with her soul,
And find someone that is on the same time track as her,
Someone who has a heart unbroken and unscathed,
Fresh and gold as the autumn sun;
And someone who has a mind old and wise,
Able to both embrace and escape from reality.
It's hard to believe in a new tomorrow when today was just as bad as yesterday
And I'm at my weakest by the end of the month
So whoever said that a New Year's resolution could change a lifetime
Didn't count how many seconds it would take for the moment to be ours
Never counted how many minutes fell through our hands as we watched the sand dance to the bottom of the hourglass
They never counted the memories, one by one, as they evaporated with each new breath
Whoever said the sun will keep you from mourning because the moon is your knight in shining armor
Never fell into the infinite abyss of depression to realize they just had to look up to find the exit
Falling stars need somewhere to land, so why haven't they found the empty canvas of your heart?
Whoever told you that being accepted for your complexion is better than being rejected for liking Star Wars
Never sat on the edge of the Milky Way and said, "My skin is easy to be in when I'm surrounded by this light show."
So go ahead and paint black holes on your eye lids and sketch sunsets on your broken hearts
Because your night is out there waiting for just the right moment to show you the way home
And if you take your time to let the north star do its job, you may just find a second chance
Who am I kidding
You don't love me
It's whatever though
You found her
Is two days enough?
Or do you need less time
I'm not even past
The words that ended us
But you aren't afraid to
Do you like her
Like you loved me?
Do you adore her
Like you craved me?
You think so
But you don't care
Whether or not
I care either
It's whatever though
And I can't believe
I wasted my time wooing
I can't believe I wrote
Poems about you
Because that is the
Most sacred display
You didn't care
You never did
It's whatever though...
Hook, line and sinker. She took mine and to think her heart could be tinkered with time or shook
Look. It's a brook under the bridge, I mistook you're allure for something unreal, leaving my heart vulnerable for you to steal
So many fish in the sea, why would you pick me? My fins end in rough edges and my stories are never started in a noteworthy book
I think you thought you ought to give me a chance but you shouldn't try something new for your last meal
You've mismatched me with better catches so what plan are you hatching and what does it have to do with me?
Free as a bird but without the wings, like a fallen Angel who wants to make the most of his exile
While you smile and tell me you make a mean set of wings with some feathers and wax, well we'll just have to see
Because I'm sure Icarus can attest to it being best for simple sons like us to rest far below the fiery isle
You really want to go through with this? Well ignorance is bliss and that silly grin on your face is kind of cute...
But don't expect this to be easy! Love is a war and we both want to make it out with a purple heart
Love is a coarse rope wrapped around your neck. Whether it becomes a noose or a leash is up to you
I do know that if you're willing to go the distance, you'll have to take my hand first because I don't know where to start
Though I try to hide it, I want to be your everything more than the beach wants to hold the sea
I want to be by your side abiding by vows made and laid in stone. I can be your everything one of these days, you'll see
Had hit five hundred pounds
my wife and I
living in our tiny bunker of concrete
waiting for the food truck to deliver to our door.
The outside world had a startling hum
of trillions of insects which were
sucking up all the air
we knew it was just a matter of time.
Darkness often descended
and all we knew was our hot breath
breathing on each other
in the tight small space
breathing each other's moist air.
The bunker was heating up
hotter and hotter
which meant the fans
were clogging up
with the bodies
of the insects
in my horror it meant
I would have to go
to clear the vent.
I had not been
For I can't remember when.
The encased cave to the ladder
the walls closing in
while insects smacked their bodies
against the sides
trying to get inside.
I crawled with suffocating breath
Mice rats bats
as the walls tightened
Finally a tiny light lead the way from the cave
to the ladder
which would take me up
to the top
where the vent was clogged.
I climbed that ladder up up up
choking and gagging and spitting out wings
On my skin
And ny nostrils in
falling down in my mind
with each and every step
and having to stick my hand
the squished and smashed remains
the screen which kept them out
and us inside.
I wasn't sure how I would survive.
Finally my task was achieved
and down the rickety shaking ladder
I went back through the cave
to our tiny shelter
and as I went inside
in her excitment knocked us over.
We lay rocking on our backs
like two turtles
unable to get up.
And there we lay
in our last days.
he left scars on my heart like lighting marks
yeah in time they would heal but that doesn't erase the memory
or i guess what we could have been
i dont know
maybe someway we'll find our way back to each other
i guess not today
but that's alright
because i'm used to waiting for things
it'll have to be okay
it's gonna have to be
