Worlds Away
Dinamus Dec 2021
I often lock my eyes
On the sight of the sky
And I stare into the night
Under the glow of moonlight

Through this looking glass
I could see
An entire world out there
Looking back at me

Confessional
Dinamus Jul 2021
I have a confession to make
I'm a manipulator
I'm a fake
My heart is a glacier
I love to see you break

I've an ace up my sleeve
Eyes of the devil
Every lie you'll believe
You're my experimental

You think you're winning?
I'll have the last laugh
No stranger to sinning
Call me the next Faust

Stars
Dinamus Apr 5
I often look up
When my world is down
To stare at the stars
When no one is around

Metamorphose
Dinamus Jul 2021
You say I've changed
Into something I can't recognise
Yet still I wage
War on your cold scathing eyes

So tell me who
The predator or the prey?
You look into the mirror
And see everyday

True colours are but shades
Wearing them like an effigy
Plastic, like make believe tales
Is this who I'm meant to be?

Sinesthesia
Dinamus Jul 2021
Your words are like poison
Venom from a snake
On my tongue like medicine
I love the way it tastes
798 · Dec 2020
Red
Dinamus Dec 2020
Red
Black skies and storm clouds
The smell of flowers and rain
The howling winds and wolves loud
Night falling on the day like drops of blood

The blood of the slain
Velvet roses and the lilies lay here
In a pool of red, stained
wading in the waters, ever clear
788 · Nov 2020
Flood
Dinamus Nov 2020
My lungs filled with water in the pouring rain
I stared into the black abyss, hands stained
The blood of the past, holding this blade
That i sank into my heart, I fell apart

I felt myself come asunder
Under the flashing lights and rolling thunder
Strobe Lights flickered, illuminating this long road, quicksand pulling me under
Flash floods, wash away my fickle hate, trickling down my tear ridden face

Rain on me, cleanse me in your rippling waves
Drench me in your grace, as you take me under in your gaze
The eye of the storm, a home in this cyclone
And drown me, take away my heart of stone


Samir Mohammed, Flood

Seasons
Dinamus Aug 2021
Like the earth around the sun
Ever changing
Like the dusk until the dawn
Never waning
You ever think about how you're a completely different person than you once were?

The Deep End
Dinamus Aug 2021
My mind is an ocean
Vast and Deep

In it I have found
Every piece of me

In it I have drowned
Who I used to be

In it I have Crowned
The new king of deceit

Checkmate
Dinamus Dec 2020
Black and White
Raise the banner, sound the sirens
Wrong and right
This is war, this won't end in silence

Strings
Dinamus Feb 11
Surrogate pawn
In the light of day
These moves aren't yours
In this game we play

Make a move
Take your time
In the end
It's still all mine

You'll be the first to laugh
At the end of my string
you'll know it's all pretend
'Cause I always win

Empty Cries
Dinamus Jul 2021
What were once dreams
Unveiled to be nightmares
I can still hear their screams
I can still feel you there

Beyond the reverie
I asphyxiated
In the deep cold sea
That I created
682 · Mar 11
Empty Vessel
Dinamus Mar 11
I'm just a shell
Of who I used to be
Can't you tell
This isn't really me?

Dance of Death
Dinamus Jul 2021
There will be no heroes
In our dance of death
So take my hand
And take your last breath

Keep your eyes on me
In this macabre masquerade
And stay light on your feet
Or you'll be the first to break
619 · Jan 2021
Hangman
Dinamus Jan 2021
Knots tied like boy scouts
Wrapped in a burlap sack
Withering hope and flames going out
Slithering rope and my neck snapped
609 · Aug 2021
Mirage
Dinamus Aug 2021
Blur the lines
Between the tides
Swim with me
In the sea of lies
And you will see
Who I am inside

Dandelion
Dinamus Jul 2021
I've never had roots
I go where the wind takes me
I'm like a ghost
When I go to sleep
Please don't wake me.

Chamber
Dinamus Aug 2021
He said to my face
"You miss every shot
You don't take"
                                 And I replied
"I only have one bullet
And on it is your name."

The worlds in your head
Dinamus Mar 12
A sweet story being told
Melting, it fills the mold
Every word is a piece of us
Every new world on the canvas

Couldn't you see
Every part of you and me
Has shaped the flowers
Until they became ours
Even this poem is a reflection, uniquely, because your mind has made it a part of you and has written its own story.

Always
Dinamus Jan 14
Roses are red
Violets are violets
Everyone is dead
Why is it always violence?
528 · Nov 2020
The Lights In The Sky
Dinamus Nov 2020
The skies were pitch
the deafening silence only filled
by the sound of violence
crickets chirping, blood spilled

The fireflies that used to be here are gone
Now they lie, down in the mud, torn
Now they've died, and the birds don't sing their song
No more of the soft tone that I used to know

The flowers didn't even grow
Covered and coveted in the snow
Lost in the gaze of this black hole
Stars lost their glow, as I watched from below

Hindsight
Dinamus Mar 8
If I knew it would've been this way
Then maybe I wouldn't be here today
Lonesome in the dark with no friends
A Hole in my heart until the very end

Summer
Dinamus May 22
O' Sun I beckon to thee
Shine thou light
O' set me free
In overpowering might

This light of day
Thou hast burnt the rain away
In all coming wake
A new dawn breaks
446 · May 2021
Rain
Dinamus May 2021
I used to love the rain
Those were the days
now my hands are stained
and it can't wash my sorrows away

I used to pray for the fall
The blackened skies and mist
Now I'm lost in the thrall
Drowning in the sea, with the fish

I used to wonder why
The cold felt so endearing
the cries of the sky
Now I'm the one with tears
in my eyes
445 · Jul 2021
Tenebris angelus
Dinamus Jul 2021
I never feared death
I welcomed her with open arms
To take my last breath
Thrown into the ways of harm

And death was my console
Slowly sinking into the abyss
An invitation to my soul
The life I lived remiss
443 · Aug 2021
Rigor Mortis and Tendon
Dinamus Aug 2021
Writhing like a worm
Spent too much time
Basking in the sun
Baking my bones
In a bed of leaves
Laying with the stones
Buried like a seed
In pieces like the sky
Split by the clouds and breeze
In a dried lake of red
Where I rest my head
439 · Aug 2021
Human
Dinamus Aug 2021
Our flesh and bone
Circuits of veins and arteries
Not alike the stone
Or even the trees

Complex machines
Blood like a red blush
Not alike the ice
Yet cold to the touch
438 · Nov 2020
Chemical
Dinamus Nov 2020
Chemical Lover, I offer you a toast
Serotonin, endorphins and all the most
Fill my heart like a sweet overdose
And Take away my pain, tender ghost
421 · Dec 2020
Lambda λ
Dinamus Dec 2020
So far away from home
left in the rushing waves and pain
In the pouring rain all alone

So far away from home
left here with ghost ships
and the call of the siren's moan

So far away from home
Silence filled by the filling hull
The cries of seagulls
Lambda represents wavelengths in physics, in this case it is used as a metaphor for water waves

Is any of it 𝒎𝒆?
                                Am I lost in the In between?

                                       I keep asking myself
                                   "𝑪𝒂𝒏 𝑰 𝒕𝒓𝒖𝒔𝒕 𝒘𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝑰 𝒔𝒆𝒆?"

                        I'm stuck between 𝖜𝖗𝖔𝖓𝖌 ​and 𝖗𝖎𝖌𝖍𝖙

                       In a world that is b̸̭͓̏̚l̸̨̔͐a̷̺̮͗̄̑c̴̛̪͕̿͛k̸̡̨̹̔͒ and 🆆🅷🅸🆃🅴

Eternal Darkness
Dinamus Dec 2020
A shell, an armour of stone
Cold as the touch of ice
Eternal darkness left alone
Left to my devices, in a prison of spite
Warning to be harkened
Eternal darkness left in this place called home
359 · Aug 2021
Sickness
Dinamus Aug 2021
It's a bitter taste
On the back of my tongue
The growing seed of hate
Spreading into my lungs

Eclipse
Dinamus Dec 2020
Melan-choly, in me

Could you be, the one to set me free?

I don't be-lieve, in these things

I can't see the things you see, so easi-ly

Blinded by the glare of your bright-ness

Shine your light and let me feel, your soul-stice
341 · Aug 11
Bed of Thorns
Dinamus Aug 11
I lie here
In a growing bed of thorns
The roses red
And the stems strong

They cover my eyes
In their petals white
Hiding my demise
Beneath the night

I try to sleep
But the spines are sharp
they pull me in
And stab me in the dark

I try to run
But it's no use
They wrap around my neck
Like a noose
334 · Aug 2021
Opportunistic
Dinamus Aug 2021
I'll take every chance
That I can take
I don't care
If my life's at stake
I'm sick of falling asleep
And crying in my wake

It's raining every day
The skies used to be so clear
Beautiful in every way
Now they're clouded with fear

Skeletons
Dinamus Jun 20
There's a monster in the mirror
Something in me has changed
And it won't disappear
These voice in my head
They whisper in my ear
And won't stop until I'm dead

Butterflies
Dinamus Mar 22
This feeling in my stomach
Won't fade away
It's like the butterflies I felt
When I used to see your face

Vicarious
Dinamus Feb 10
It's getting harder to see
Through this smoke in my lungs
Hoping to break the fog
Cigarette on my tongue
It calms my anxiety

Ensnared in my mind
Too scared to scream
My body's not mine
This feels like a bad dream
Life can't go on living in the past, or through another.
247 · Apr 22
Clairvoyant
Dinamus Apr 22
It takes more than eyes to see
beyond the veil
what is underneath
this path you sail

You have eyes
they won't help you here
The blinding light
the ultimate sight
232 · Apr 29
Anger
Dinamus Apr 29
It toils and it burns
In my stomach it churns
I seal my lips
To hide a choice of words

No wrong or right
In this cold night
I don't want to fight
But I just might

I'm not one to attack
But this knife
You've stabbed my back
I might just snap
Not a feeling I'm overly proud of, but I feel ashamed even feeling that way.

Alexithymia
Dinamus Jan 21
I wanted to feel what I say
Without the colours washing away
I apologise everyday,
"Sorry I am this way"

I try every now and then
I even use poetry to vent
But in the end it's all pretend
And I'm in tears again
231 · Jan 28
H O L L O W
Dinamus Jan 28
My heart is a void
Black and empty
You and I are not the same
I don't know how to feel
Like a moth to a flame
I break my bones
And tear my skin
I'm only a home
For the evil within

Yesterday feels like a dream
Like just yesterday I was me
But today I can't remember
Who I'm supposed to be

Poetry
Dinamus Jul 14
Speak for me
When I'm in the depths
Down on my knees
And my strength has left

Sing for me
Like the falling rain
When I weep
And can't take the pain

Breathe for me
When my lungs are black
And I can't breathe
With this weight on my back

Scream for me
When my words make no sound
When I bleed
And no one is around
218 · Jul 1
Change for a change
Dinamus Jul 1
I go from pocket to pocket
From hand to hand
I've a couple coins in my locket
But never the same man

Call it constants and variables
People tell me I've changed
That I've gotten unstable
I guess that part is still the same

I still ask myself
"Am I someone else?"

"Am I going insane?"
"These voices are messing with my brain."
204 · May 23
Polarized
Dinamus May 23
No more grey
I want to break chains
From all the mundane
And make my own way

What's the point
If we're all the same?
I think it's time
For a little change

Colorful
Dinamus Jul 23
My body is cold
and my heart is black
I've done some things
That I'll never take back

My path is grey
and my hands are pink
Some things just
Don't wash off in the sink

My soul is ice
and my mind is blue
At this point
I don't know what to do

My eyes are red
and my lungs are brown
I always knew
I'd let you down
193 · Sep 3
Somewhere Else
Dinamus Sep 3
I'm always stuck
In the future or the past
Trying to hold on
Trying to make it last

Never living
In the moment
Stuck in the future
Where I keep on hoping

To see you someday
In my heart
I'll keep you there
Until the skies fall apart

Borderline
Dinamus Jun 19
I'm sorry but
Can you tell me who I'm supposed to be?
I've been caught in a rut
and I can't see too clearly
just yesterday I was me
But today I'm in the between
Can you help me to understand what I feel?
