rain at dawn

I kissed my ears to sleep
I can hear the faint fall of rain
somewhere in my head

beaver moon
café 3h
I like to talk about the moon
he's somewhere behind the thick clouds

If only I was a cloud
somewhere in his sky

can't you see me
I can make it rain down

I can make the wind talk
can't you hear it

I wear the night
swallow the daylight

lead the way
the moon is rising

a billion girls love him
a billion boys stare

the moon keeps to himself

I invite the cold inside my room
this november rain
missing you hurts

come into my world
let's stay in wonderland

my hands are falling off
I can't hear the sound
thinking about you is the worst

leaving first
you won't stay
loving you hurts

café 15h
I can write a million poems
I can use a billion words
all from different languages

I can write you a story
I can tell you a lie
I can show you the truth

these 36,000 words
mean nothing
nothing
nothing

If I can't you tell you
nothing
nothing
nothing

I promise
nothing

I'll write about
nothing

I talk of
nothing

I am a poet
I prepare myself
to feel nothing
when the last line is written

all 36,000 words
meant something

hopelessly lost
café 1d
I hope you forgive me for all the things I never do
I hope you forgive me for all I never say

I hope you're not hopeful
I can't change
I wait
I wait

maybe I'll give up the day I forgive myself
for all this pain

thank you
for never understanding

thank you
for never listening

thank you
for never paying attention

I fell part in front of you
not once did you catch me

I hope you forgive me
for not telling you better

I blame myself for not being better

you won't change
I waited
I wait

maybe one day
we can be hopeful for better things

plates of food I'll never eat

I wish we were friends
I wish we were friends
I wish we were friends

wake up wake up
you don't know me
I try and grow up
but I often dream you know my name

I wish we were friends
we could drive out to the city
you could feed me all the things you love
I could wait for you in the mornings and night

I'm trying to grow up
I'm trying not to hurt myself
but I will if I have to

I know I'm being lied to
I don't want to fight it
but I have to

I wish we were friends
I wish we were friends
I wish we were friends

waking up
another day
you don't know of my existence

I miss your silly gifts

you didn't make my heart race

I wasn't running away

you're not good enough for me

I miss the way you do nothing to me

your voice runs loud

I'll let you in now

you found life

I'm living a strange way

I want to be friends

you won't admit it

we won't talk again

we won't meet again

we won't

you take me back
you remind me of all the good feelings

I feel frustrated
I'm so sick of this weather

I wish I could call you at midnight
the magical hour when my heart opens
I'd spill out my secrets I'd tell you everything you don't know

I'm giving up
I'm letting go
I'm holding on
I'm off and on

I've been feeling like a lost cause
please stay up
I need to see your voice

love suicide
café 7d
He's a man without apologies
he's testing my patience
my sanity
he's a man without feelings
I followed him till I fell apart

I lose myself without him
learning ways to love myself
in ways he could not

he calls me bonita
he doesn't remember the new me
I danced around him like a doll

He's a man without love
I battle all the cruel deities
his name escapes out unknown tongues

He's a man without words
he doesn't have a conscious
old god
I let him push me to the side

He's a lonely man
somedays I hope he comes back
I hope he takes me back

I am reminded
you don't care about me

when will you disappear

look
how sad
how sad

you broke my heart

you don't have one
you can't love me back

looking for a heart

look
how foolish I am

you break my heart

you want the pieces to yourself

everyone is laughing at me

out loud
inside their heads

everywhere I go
I see the look in their eyes

I'm pathetic
I know

Alone
behind doors

I stay away

I never hurt others
I only hurt myself

everyone is watching me
everyone is talking about me

I'm a disappointment
I'm not what they expected

I'm not who they want me to be

learning how to draw
café Nov 4
drawing lines on my arms
these won't leave scars

autumn
it's time to hide under long sleeves

I use a permanent red marker
hoping no one takes a peek

I soak up the ink
waiting for my skin to dry

I know how to hide
I let them underestimate me

I let them control me
so I can learn the way

sometimes I have more power
than them
doing what they say

don't underestimate my lies
the bigger the line
I feel fine

I am a moment
café Nov 3
late nights
I hear the train call
I wonder what's it like to fall

I imagine myself running far
I never make the first step outside
the world will **** me if I hide I can survive

I've lost my right ear
I hate opening my eyes
this is me is this forever

I'm desperate
I'm changing again
I want to say everything
I speak nothing when I try

I hate the daylight
I wish to live inside the dark
I'm alive in the pitch dark
where no one can find me

winter whispers
café Oct 31
I let the wind sweep my unspoken words away

I hear the children laugh and play
I can't remember a day I was like them

I let the clouds hang heavy above me
rain somewhere my regrets can't touch me

I kept them close
we fell backwards
the closer I believed
further away we pushed ourselves

I taste the lost sleep on my lips
I carry my youth in a coin bag

the winter hides the pain
we fall with the autumn leaves
let the wind carry my being

do I trust the words I say
are they fake
flowing out of my imagination

do my eyes see the truth
is this reality
or a dark confused dream

do my ears hear honestly
I can't hear the right way
I try and silence the waves

questioning my existence

is my body real

is my mind mine

do I waste my time

am I alive

listen to the music my ears heard
touch the pillows I laid my head
use the lipsticks my lips touched
wear the necklaces that hung around my neck
drink a glass of cold milk in the rain
listen to the sad playlist I made for when I'm sad
wrap yourself around the blanket I felt safe tangled in
wear the earrings that went through my ears
take my clothes and wash them
or keep the smell I'd wear them with
walk in my shoes
maybe then you'll know
wash your hair with my shampoo
write with the pens my hands held
read all of my poems
even the unfinished ones
listen to all of the recordings
don't take it too seriously

listen
look
feel
taste
all of the things I've lived with

keep them by your side

when I leave
I'll leave small pieces of me behind
find them

keep them
until I come back

in a dream
in a cloud
in a star
in the rain
in the sun
in the wind

find ways to remember me

I wish I had the heart to love you
the way you deserve to be loved
I can't comprehend

there's no ending
I reach into the void
no one ever reaches the abyss

the way you deserve to be listened to
I can't love

living in the void
there's no beginning to this ending

things sometimes feel good
sometimes I feel like I love you
love the moment we're living inside

so I wish to never give it up
let's stay here

don't want to leave here
I want to be with you
inside this moment

we could hold hands virtually
I'll send you my heart through an email
I hope you never go
send me a message soon

I want to wake up to your notification
I want to sleep to your goodnight text

I'm right here for you
whenever you want
wherever you are

right here
right here

time to overflow
into this white screen
couldn't hear me scream

it's online

can it stay this way
much longer stay a little longer

I don't hear the bells ring
we crawl into empty spaces all of my words
wait wait we wait a while longer going offline again

hello poetry is dead
a ghost we come back to now and then
days change out of place let it overflow we won't go

Poetry is dead
café Oct 11
poetry is dead
it comes alive
dies right before our eyes
we write
talk of it
we bury it inside our heads

poetry is a ghost
haunting us awake
stuck inside our brains
lingering in our bedsheets
I smell its scent on my pillow

poetry died
I watched it crumble
I saw it's last breath
I knew it was the end

poetry
is deadly

we imagined
poetry was everlasting life

poetry is death

a thought
a feeling
a person
a time
a place
an object

we pull from our hearts

into this burning flame

it glows
it prevails

once our eyes touch the last word

breathing it's
last goodbye

hoping for someone to pass by
stealing a sharp breath of air

the words are gone
lights out

poetry is dead
rest in peace
1. No longer living.
2. Figuratively, not alive; lacking life.

yes I am a liar
I'm a lot of things

coming clean
isn't me

I keep my secrets stuffed inside my pockets
can't catch me red-handed

you said you love me
that's nothing

would you lie for me
would you ever hate me

I trust everyone
so they can trust me

don't look behind my mask
I always come back
tomie's inside

my poems are rotten
I'm the poisoned fruit

this is my getaway
