the river
Snow Selmon Aug 5
my blood runs over the rocks
the cold covers my body
blood draining from me
I don't need a heart
I don't need blood
I don't need a life
when no one loves me

battle
Snow Selmon Feb 16
the blue is violet
the red tears of fire

the white stars flash
darkness consumes

bursts of sound
unparalleled pain

Escape
Snow Selmon Feb 3
I cannot hide
I cannot flee
I cannot escape
who I used to be

my secret
Snow Selmon Nov 2021
Am I too scary for you
Am I covering the moon
Am I a problem to you

Will you love me
Will you trust me
Will you believe me

I have a feeling
I have a problem
I have a secret

I still dream of you
I still love you
I still wish you were in my arms

Am I wrong to think
"Will you love me"
Am I right to still
dream of you loving me...

rose
Snow Selmon Nov 2021
we were roses
never meant to be
thorns upon thorns

I'm not a rose
a lily
floating along the current

your turbulent waves
you said we weren't
to be together

as I see it your, chaotic
and I'm calm
you took me on a ride

I ended
on the rocks
your words

they cut deep
breaking me
like your lies

hop
Snow Selmon Oct 2021
hop
going between emotions
bursting against each other
trying to find a grip
where their are no hand holes
no one to help
where you just have one choice
to hop to the next step
hoping it doesn't snap

Ocean talk
Snow Selmon Oct 2021
we can not understand how
rivers and oceans talk
how they wade through
troubles and hard rock of
problems how they turn
us against ourselves
and unite in one breath
how they overflow
taking us with it

Light
Snow Selmon Oct 2021
Turn to the east and watch the light rise
And turn the light to the west
Where your dreams disappear
And the world goes dark

the mail
Snow Selmon Oct 2021
the letter came today
chasing thoughts
from my head
scattering them
constellations
of what I dream
my deepest darkness

Sky Drops
Snow Selmon Oct 2021
walking through clouds
catching blue drips of sky
catching in my mind
a vision, a dream?
of what is meant to be
a shallow shell
one little hole of where I could be
I will let the blue drips go
washing away the colour
leaving me emotions
bear and exposed

tired
Snow Selmon Sep 2021
always running
without water
not a single drop of dew
a little river
is all I ask
instead of this land
I live in
where water
is just for the lies
that blossom

low
Snow Selmon Sep 2021
low
he looks upon me
faced down to the ground
seeking a truth
that can't be taken
nor received
because it is me

pushing
Snow Selmon Sep 2021
you pushed and shoved
hands clenching
and legs tensing
I fell and you helped me up
just to push again and again
I let you push me
till I was over the edge
and the only push was
my heart against my chest

night
Snow Selmon Sep 2021
running through a field
running blind
unable to find you
you're darkness a shield
a sadness defined
my heart see-through

Rust
Snow Selmon Aug 2021
I lied in the rain and slept
when I woke
your arms pinned me
I was too heavy
plastered with rust
to which your laugh sounded
all around my head
pinned to you
unable to move
my rusted heart

neon
Snow Selmon Aug 2021
the dreams
come in light
bright burning light
evaporating my eyes
bringing darkness
a relief to the light
but a curse of blindness
who could've thought
dreams
would show me
reality

quiet
Snow Selmon Aug 2021
stitch my mouth
one at a time

stealing words
from smoke

a dream
from my head

Quiet tendrils
Of smoke

Embraces meaning
Capturing thoughts

Never-ending night
Beaming moon

I wish on a star
As it passes through

To only receive a night
Full of nothing bright

The moon kisses me
It embraces me

Although it’s dark
The moon will carry me

The night is safe
Though scary

My home is with the demons
And with the ghost that is me

No one can take my words
And no one will take my home

The constellations swirl
Calling me

You were there
Always embracing me

Always smelling of home
Always watching the ground

I will trip I will get up
And I will run

I am no longer scared
I am strong and will walk

I am not your little boy
But the woman I am today
adding on to a past poem

save a life
Snow Selmon Aug 2021
I lost you
in the end
where there was nothing
dreams of limbs
and your eyes
blue
striking loving blue

Snow Selmon Aug 2021
I still think of you
your arms around me
and the safety of home

Side effect
Snow Selmon Aug 2021
dying is a side effect of living
always running around a
universes whim
being lonely is a side effect
and being sad is a side effect
living is not a gift but a curse
for we will never be whole
with the side effect of living

tide
Snow Selmon Aug 2021
the moon pulls and pushes
the tides
directing the water and our lives
it's our lives
the moon doesn't care
why would it
it's not affecting its life but ours
we will always be controlled by outsiders
who don't know us and couldn't care
we are slaves
to our minds and those who control it
Aug 2021 · 53
push
Snow Selmon Aug 2021
your push turned to shove
my heart stopped to beat
and my eyes teared at your face
you bring me back to times
when I was happy
and also so sad
when tears were welcomed
instead of feared
where I was wanted
not feared
I'm sorry I wasn't there
when it was needed
a sorry is all I can say
a push turned to shove
and I couldn't stand my ground
Aug 2021 · 312
river
Snow Selmon Aug 2021
Cry me a river they say
if only they knew
that tears are not what create the rivers
but the emotions
that become from their journey

if I left
Snow Selmon Jul 2021
if I passed would you look for me
if I was gone from here would you care
if I was buried in the ground would you mourn
why would you care about someone like me
some broken
person...

Untitled
Snow Selmon Jul 2021
fields of red
lines of roses
all seem to shed their tears
a lay and stare

roses don't care
so why do I
always taking on red
blazing burning red

blood that talks and sings
but dies and falls
and in all of this
well I'm not worth it

you
in my eyes
burning imprint
why won't you leave
in my heart and mind
I never knew you had so much power
but now I'm lost
in eyes so dangerous
and without a cause

I am not a slave to you
I am my own and I will not
be tied down by the words
of a demon like you

I won't ever be complete
without you

Sunken Cry
Snow Selmon Jun 2021
Darkened sky
Shy from dormit sleep
Stark intruding flies
Scry fire and flame
Burnt muscle
Broken empire
One glass admires
And opals rain
Where fire is reality
And water is danger
Where fire is lava
And water is a tsunami
Turning the toils of war

if you
Snow Selmon May 2021
if you even followed me
with a name I wouldn't know
I would still cherish you so
and somehow you mean the world
Latin Verbs for me and you
Te Amo Angelius Bambi
I figured out the puzzle
and it was love
I still cherish the memories
you and I shared
forever and forever
true love stands
so come and find me
I'm still waiting
arms open and blood bared
I will give everything
for our love to stand

wind
Snow Selmon May 2021
lay down feel the wind
a soft constant found within
and somehow it whispers your name
E.T.H.A.N
every syllable in every language
and it seems to mean the same thing
that Love is an angel it will burn bright
with a Te Amo
I  hope it finds you on your darkest nights
so it fills you with strength
and it can light the darkness
and help you escape

driving
Snow Selmon May 2021
could I borrow a few more miles
my wheels are flat
and it's getting dark
and the pink of day
is fading to grey
a few more miles
is all I need
a tiny distance
that feels like light years
and I'm waiting for someone to pass
maybe their waiting on me
to get out of the dark
and stand in the light
to put up a fight
but these tires are deflated
the lights are gone
I dream of your arms
ones that felt safe and like home
where I was someone and not bare bone
you are my power
even if your not here
you are energy you are everywhere
you are my destination
the place I'm stuck in between
the place I can't go
is where my home is
so I'll wait out the night
and inflate my tires
go a couple miles
until I find you
even just a glimpse will refill me
I'll be on my way
humming my love away
so that you can breathe it in
so you can see what I couldn't say
you can feel what I was scared of
so I'll drive
far, far away
so I won't hurt you no more
bye, bye my angel
I hope the light treats you well

puppet
Snow Selmon May 2021
pull the strings
I am bound to the stage
a cement paper weight
a permanent record
on the radio
seen on the pavement
a bit everywhere
where my mind is lost
and the puppet is happy
a long life
a job is road
take it
take the highway home

ghost
Snow Selmon May 2021
I'm getting high on fumes
shooting with eyes closed
trying to **** with a smile

I'm playing with a ghost
so I'm not alone

taking drugs by the miles
drinking my sorrows
hoping I'll die tomorrow

I'm playing with a ghost
so I'm not alone

take a flower see it bloom
ghosts reminds me of you
always there in the dark

I'm playing with a ghost
so I'm not alone

fighting sleep, passing out
counting sheep, eating out
close my eyes dream of you

I'm playing with a ghost
so I know I'm alone

I am alone with a ghost
looking through sunken eyes
look left, look right

I'M PLAYING WITH A GHOST
AND IT'S YOU

choices
Snow Selmon May 2021
I was left in backwash
breathing in you
trying to enjoy it
till the blood was boiling
and I had no choice
but to love you
boiling till bursting
but I was careless
and something else burst instead
and it was my choice
that left me alone

leaking

drops of water so lonely yet so full

leaking

it held love that I can't

a secret a once held

I used to have love

leaking

scratches
Snow Selmon Mar 2021
nails on skin
droplets
drip, drip

losing sanity
in my blood
ecstasy

pure elation
pure bliss
scratches

drip, drip
on the floor
bleeding out

when the clock strikes 12
I will fall for you
a undead promise

it was for you I was here
and now the canvas is red
no more pink

I will scratch the pain away
leaving water color red
I am alone I am dead

drip, drip, drip

Ripping
Snow Selmon Mar 2021
rich crimson painted rust

and wait for the pain
for your soul to be
ripped apart

Snow Selmon Mar 2021
I laid eyes on the one I loved
and they sang
they dug in my ground

I found you were there
in the hard times
but then...
the hope well
let's say it got

it feels nice
and yet I feel the darkness
it's coming up
better take another drink
ahh good numbness
