Nevada
Tony Luna Sep 2016
Four hour drive to Nevada
Long *** drive I knew, I should've had some *****.
No traffic, just a bunch of rear view lights displayed as stars.
No sight seeing, just mountains and lame *** cars.

Music plays, and laughter took place.
I sang to keep the drowsiness off my face.
We encountered some dips,
And I began to dance; but didn't move below the hips.

Mainly listened to hip hop,
That kind of rhythm you cant just stop.
You gotta dance all throughout to the last note.
Even if someone sees you dance and prays for an antidote.

We arrived to our destination close to midnight.
Once my body touched the bed, I no longer saw light.
Only to wake at four in the morning,
Laying in bed breathing and writing.

Seven forty five small black box starts to yell.
My family woke up, and made our way out of the hotel.
Set course to the lake, hopped on a boat.
Sailed to a shore that wasn't remote.

My aunt's family is pretty cool and chill.
Their boats and seadoo made the weekend that much more of a thrill.
The food and drinks never seemed to end.
I climbed a cliff and prepped for my descend.

Jumping into black water,
On our way back, scolded by my uncle as if he were my father.
I didn't get mad, with my adrenaline, I never know when to stop.
So I listened and never went back to the hilltop.  

Jorge took his boat back in with a big floating device.
Diego told me to hold on, that was his only advice.
I haven't smiled so much in so long.
That's how it should be all yearlong.

Touching land again, my existence was then recorded.
The video was sent to my mother to show I wasn't wounded.
The water began to call my name, so I entered it's depths.
The water touched my skin like a cool breeze kiss.

Going back to Aquarius, we were burnt as hell.
I'm sure we stood out more than Wisconsin's well known carousel.
Showered then went out to eat.
Returning back to the room to sleep cause I was beat.

I met this girl named E with much more consonants and vowels.
Saying I jumped from a kiddy cliff, her words played constantly in the back of my head like howls.
Well E, I love my life and get injured on the daily.
I can only imagine myself screaming like a little baby.

I mean there has to be a reason those rocks are carved out like skulls.
I've climbed trees higher than that castle.
But jumping such height, I'm not sure I can do.
But if I do jump and the light vanishes who will come to my rescue?

Packed up our gear and headed back to our room.
My uncle and I stayed in, but my aunt changed into another costume.
Drank a beer then fell asleep.
Woke up to the sound of my heartbeat.

Two hours later and there was still no sound.
Looked out the window and there was no one around.
My cousin woke, and began to talk.
My fam got up and we began our walk.

I swam for a good two hours.
My aunt, cousin, and I got on a raft; I kid you not we should've gone to the doctors.
Tia skipped on water, my prima broke her finger nail, and I coughed blood.
Hell I'd go to the ER, if and only if all my trips were funded.
This trip I'll never forget,
That goes for the blue water, and the yellow pink sunset.
Three weeks after the crash, I went on this amazing trip! ****, just ****, this trip was so much fun! I wish it didn't have to end.

Dimples, Stars, Angel
Tony Luna Jun 2016
She has craters on her face
A warm smile embraced. 

Lights in her eyes 
Her love never dies. 

Feathers on her back, and a halo over her head
There's so many things I'm leaving unsaid.

Her grins are the best 
So contagious, love will sprout from your chest. 

Galaxies around her iris 
A cure for all the callous. 

She's vigilant
Most of all she's fluorescent.
No matter what this person goes through there's always a smile on her face.

Rollercoasters

I close my eyes, and the black sea rises.
As I try to sleep, I feel my body sway.
My dreams are filled with many surprises.
So I force myself to stay awake till the next day.
I love amusement parks, but when it comes to sleeping it *****. Then when I start to dream it gets crazier. So I force myself to wake up.

Good Vibes
Tony Luna Apr 2017
I've been attentive to the station she put on my cell.
These vibes have definetly grasped me like a spell.
I never cared much for bands before the eighties.
Now I'm air soloing guitar chords and piano keys.
If you guys have bands for me to listen to. Message me or leave it in the comments below.

Ephemeral
Tony Luna Dec 2016
This loneliness I feel, I know is only temporary.
Just as I know my right hand won't always be empty.

Fuck
Tony Luna Oct 2016
You ever miss someone, you start looking through a box of photos.
You go through your closet, and you still have some of their personal belongings or clothes.
Cause you're scared you'll forget.
Then you find their music, and plug in your headset.

Tears fall and your wishing you could've had more time.
I do this often and turn my emotions into rhyme.
Have you ever lied about why you're crying¿
You say something convincing just so they'd stop asking.

An enormous amount of time has passed and you're still grieving.
Others don't seem as depressed, what if they're still hurting¿
When that month and day come by; I can read there body better than any word.
Don't bottle up what you feel, let it out, trust me it'll become a hazard.

Rise Like The Sea
Tony Luna Jun 2016
Sway me back and forth, hold me in your chest.
My head feels like it's being compressed.
Put me to sleep, put me to rest,
Because I can feel my upcoming quest.

Wrap your arms around my body,
Sing me a song, just not so loudly.
Part my hair from my eyes,
And you will see my unlit cries.

Clasp your hand between my fingers,
Cause your touch are my only embers.
Keeping me from going overboard,
You strum my heart like the c minor chord.

Because of you I have a smile bigger than the setting sun,
Which makes you the ocean.
You make me rise like the sea,
And when I fall it doesn't hurt that badly.

Hold It Back
Tony Luna Jun 2016
My anger issue is something i can't always control.
Lingering inside flowing through my veins with its own patrol.
I don't always explode
When I do, my body starts to implode.

From the inside out,
Makes you want to really shout.
Then more hate cycles through my body.
Putting me and others in agony.

From there people will have lots to tell.
Putting you in an abyss of hell.
Having anger a lot harder to get away.
Pulling you and your soul astray.

But your confidence under your barrier,
Is much more scarier.
From this point others neglecting words mean nothing.
Because their mouths will always be running.
So you turn their consultations into a tone.
While others wait for your demon state to be born.
Jeff Davis - "Be your own anchor".

Don't Take Her
Tony Luna Jun 2016
My friend has cancer, and she's hiding behind her smile.
I know that's the kind of pain that doesn't last for a while.
She's been smiling more than usual,
God you better not put her in a chapel!

I don't want to see another friend buried so soon.
I've spent enough time crying underneath the moon.
Crying my eyes out!
Not knowing if my friends can hear me shout!

God please don't take her.
There will be a lot of sadness and anger.
Anger directed towards you instead of blaming the disease.
Sir she deserves to live to her nineties.

Take my strength however much is needed!
The fact that I still stand must mean my strength is gifted!
You've seen what I've been through,
And right now she needs it more than I do.

— The End —
