my silence isn't mystery,
it's misery.
ten long years,
tongue-in-cheek.
no-win memories.
felt like centuries
in hell to me.
it was tiptoes
through
shadows.
sad eyes,
black eyes,
no dreams,
and no hope.
sleepless nights,
trembling tragic
with abandon.
praying to a god
I no longer
believed in.
it'***** or miss, but
mostly hit when
it was my stepfather's fist.
addicts and pincushion wrists.
just one more soft infinite.
life tingled like
goodbye's bitter kiss.
haven't smiled since.
my mother's cold indifference.
yeah. that pain is different.
concluded and permanent.
cold, like my grandmother's grave.
the only one that ever gave a ****.
and i'm still silent.
and i'm still the glass-***** boy.
seems like nothing changes, yet
nothing ever stays the same.

the ember's of her passion
still keep me warm,
though, the fire no longer burns.

like the air I breathe,
I couldn't imagine life
without you.

I love your smile.
the way your soul
anchors truth deep
inside my stomach's pit,
tying knots from doubt,
end to end.

I like the colors of the wind that
swirl down from your shoulder
to your hand.

I love the unnoticed things.
    the way your cheeks glisten,
     reflecting the early,
  untamed light.

I like your voice.
   the permanent war
  between heart and mind;
for as long as neither permit
a final kiss goodbye,
we may taste eternity
breathing life into
morning's bare-skinned
might.
waiting between
the teeth for a whisper
on pale-moonlight
to softly
introduce our lips
through a starry-eyed kiss.
I love you, forever.
     -goodnight.

the soft light from
across
the room
casted a shadow
on half of you
and i thought to myself,
i am in love.
her ******* were
still swollen
from the child we lost,
she smiled her sleepy
smile and said, "i want
this moment to last forever."
and i thought to myself,
i will be okay.
i said this with more
hope than honesty.
and honestly, i gave
up on hope the day
you aborted our child.
so the moment has long
passed,
and i'm grateful to know
your heart isn't kind.
though, i still wish you
the best with this war
you're fighting within.
i'm just happy to be without
reasons to miss you anymore.

with every passing moment,
I find it more and more
difficult to determine
who is human &
what human is?

if God is in the details,
I must have forgotten
my prayers

her smile was the truth,
and her eyes were the door.

in seven days,
goodbye, tiny hands..
mon amour

they don't make
promises like
you anymore

without a smile,
goodbye, gabrielle..
mon amour
