My periods turn to semicolons
My suicide notes to poetry
My goodbyes become hellos
The blades turn to sunflowers
And the bullets, a rose
My heart still is broken
But the pieces have been found
Death isn’t for me anymore
What is, in the here and now
I still don’t feel enough
But I am alive
And that’s enough to say
Today is not the day I die.

speak o hollow one speak
your words are a due
why do you tremble and fall and stall
if your aware, that it is the day of the march hare.

Everything I see now is like a dream
And as colors began to fade
Their souls started to merge
as what autumn and winter did
Slowly creating a wonderful moment
A beautiful image
Like a rainbow after the rain

THE DUSK FOX

the fox acknowledges
with an imperceptible  nod
the arrival of dusk

dusk and the fox
becoming one
entering the world of humans

the fox is busy
being a fox
stops: paw raised

the fox goes
in and out of
time

appearing now
disappearing as if
it had stepped out of the world

the dusk no longer
exists
night falls with my footfall

as if on cue
synchronised to time
and light

the fox stares  at me
beyond me...I am
a walking shadow

the yellow street light
stains us for a moment
we vanish from each other

tomorrow sees
dusk and fox
keep the same appointment

only I
am absent
. . .

Your my wife and lover,
All the wonderful things
We shared together in life,
As our hearts beat together,
Entwined forever,
I'm truly in love....

My heart is complete
With you by my side sweetheart,
As we grow old
We grow grey together,
Your more beautiful each day.

As I kiss your hand,
Gazing into your eyes
We are forever in Love,

You are forever with me...
In a heart, My mind,
And soul it's a beautiful Feeling,
This happiness we share.

And sweetheart in life
As I Whisper too you
Your always in my life
And
Forever In My Heart...
True Love

He says I should stop being kiddish...
What he doesn't know is
That I love this innocence of us

He says go for it ...
Either say or make him do it
N I m here waiting for exact time

He says u both r noob
Well he is right
Maybe that's what makes us stupid enough
to know each other

He says get mature
Take desicions
N I m just pondering
Not to get hurt
Thanks rags u always advice me good ...this one is for u geeky guy I know u ll find alot of mistakes in this too

I say “ I don’t know “ alot
And I mean it
I’m not embarrassed to say
That I don’t know
I’m not scared of being
A human
In fact
I don’t know
what’s the point of
Knowing
Why do we exist? I really don’t know

Him
He skinned me alive,
He used me too.
He trashed me again,
But said “I love you”.
He made me insecure,
But i had a breakthrough.
I’m glad we are done,
It’s not me - it’s you.
Love is made of art and brokenness
Like a candle it illuminates the heart's darkness
We are bearing seeds of tiny metal particles
As if we are made out of diamonds
And perhaps a few dusty old napkins

I wish I can go back in time,
and take back everything I've done that has damage us.

I wish I never fell in love with you,
I wish I had listened to myself in the beginning.

I focused too much on the idea of you and me together,
I forgot that expectations never met reality.

I just let everything flow itself,
and maybe someday faith can bring us together.
Only if someday ever exist.
so... I am really have given up on liking this guy. He grew distance to me all of a sudden, and I wish it never happen. This was I fear.

his face against mine
i sigh
he opens his eyes
he tells me what he wants
not a question
so i open mine
and turn to my side
i have to deny
what he wants
because on my mind
is another guy

2am
Whisper the words in my ear
2am and we won't sleep, too bad!

Tell me your worse kinda fear
2am and we won't sleep, too bad!

You can cry if you want to
Make me your refuge
2am and we won't sleep, too bad!

I feel your heart beat on my skin
I feel the energy deep within
I know what you're hiding,
Let me in!!

It 2am and we won't sleep, too bad!

                          2am
deep in the sheets of your bed.
I hope when we move in together, 2am will be our time...

This is the way I deal with it
The venom between the lungs which sinister stirs on the shortened breath of shaky self-esteem
The poetic palpitation pleading please write your wrongs before they putrefy
This is the way I deal with it
It is when words dry up that the ink bleeds
Dance around your feelings, call it a campfire
Let others at least roast with the remnants of yours
This is the way I deal with it
For some it is to light the fire
For others, to follow the smoke

Wandering face
Keep on looking
For that place
Spinning head
On and on
Change instead

Just as the moon pulls the ocean in on itself,
So have you caused my heart to recede into its darkest corners.
The once glittery trails of moonlight on the glassy waters
Are replaced with the dull reflection of what used to be.
And what we used to call love, we now call just a memory.

I hate your tall looming figure
I hate the color of your sandy skin
I hate your cool looking black hair
I hate your sculpted face
I hate that you're a guy
I hate that I'm your upperclassmen
I hate that your so timid
I hate that you make good jokes
I hate that I love you, just within a glance

Wind carried and wind made
Adventures through valleys old and cities new
Silver in starlight and pearl at noon

An endless face to find its wonders
A clean palette for a mind to ponder
And escorted by light it wanders

To find a river to fill its hold
To fade into the beauty blue
To glow before the golden sun

Bringing shade to a desert town

I never knew
that I could become
so enthralled
               and entrapped
                              and enamored
by one person

until

I met

you.

I fear coming down from my high
because you broke my heart

I fear coming down from my high
because thoughts of you
and
the silence threaten to pull me apart

I fear coming down from my high
because the silence threatens to open up the floodgates to my broken heart

I fear coming down from my high
because all I remember is you

I fear coming down from my high
because all I remember is you

I fear coming down from my high
because all I remember are your lies

I fear coming down from my high
because you lie at the heart of my sober mind

I fear coming down from my high
so I stay high
the aftermath

i open my windows in October
when i sleep

i am alone

still candle flame through frosted stone

a warm milky glow
& cool crystalline air

these things weave me together

I knit those words together
so you can pull them over yourself,
on a cold day
and always remember,
Its me keeping you warm.

will find you in peace

Whether a comma, or colon:
Punctuation slows my rolling
I need no period. When I end
no Capitalization when I begin
Rulelessly I flow my art
  Not a single!
Explanation mark
Are you not the one
Who'll know?
Where a question mark
No longer goes

Warp the structure
Bend the lines
Put in repeat
Let emotion unwind
Make yourself
Your poetry's the best
Be your own ruler
Pass your own test

Take your own road
Where ever it leads
Lover or hater
It's all poetry!

i met her in a bar down in memphis teneese
she was standing there looking straight at me
with her sparkling eyes and a smile upon her face
sent the soul in me to diffferent place

then we danced together on the bar room floor
dancing cheek to cheek my heart began to soar
with each dance we had i just loved her more
such a lovely feeling i never felt before

everything i dreamed of was dancing there with me
the girl that i wished for it was meant to be
we settled down together raised a family
with the girl i met in memphis teneesee

i wont forget that night in memphis teneesee
when  i met the girl that was meant for me
her and i together it was meant to be
that i settled down with and raised a family

Fearless
rain drops fall upon her head
try push her to the ground
but she stands tall against it all
and strength and love are found

the torment and the cold
of the never ending drops
feed her very core with life
and eventually it stops

the hardships that we face
are not always as we see
sometimes they just happen
to be exactly what we need

the pedals soaking wet
stem dripping down with tears
but still the flower stood
in lieu of all her fears

then the sun came out
as the rain began to cease
and her purpose came to light
and she enjoyed a life of peace

ok okay
Depression is numbness
Anxiety is pain
When they are mixed
It is like fire and rain
Except the fire never goes out
And the rain only becomes heavier
3am thoughts
Depression is rain and anxiety is a raging fire
