we are like stars
in endless void
forever faithful
to exist
in emptiness
I'm sorry, I added my own poem to collections but I'm obsessed with this one.

I took my knife out
ready to be tainted in red
and it makes me want to cry
I don't want to do it
I want to believe
we can be pure

for being a monster
when no one apologized

look at the stars
                              isn't it bizarre
I see you up there
like a tiny flare
                              in that huge sky
you left me
                              in this world to die
                                 we could've gone together
                                         but just like the weather
      you're unpredictable
     but isn't this just typical
                I believe in love
                  so we will reunite above
as our children will gaze at us
I gaze at you
well, I technically mean that person is dead. just saying if you don't get it.

a slap from the one who always stood by my side
hurt more than being
stabbed a thousand times
if I could turn back time
I wouldn't disappoint you again
so, please
trust me once more
I promise ill hold onto it
like nothing else
ill love, you like you never felt the pain
when you're old
I'll hold your hand
and when you near the end
I'll be someone you're proud of
so trust me
it takes years to build trust but it takes a moment to break it.

Genuine kindness
is misunderstood
for ulterior motives.

Defensive claws
draw blood from
my open hand.

My tears hold
no expectations
lifting me up,
nurturing your fall.

the soft touch of my mother's hand
her warm embrace
the dreamland
it's slowly fading away
                               a little.....
                                      just a little longer
                       let me hold on to it

sleepless nights
ghost Oct 2020
I loved sleep
a second away from reality
death for a moment
heaven for a minute
hell for a while
but when they came
the sleepless nights
they made me so powerless
even when stabbed
my eyes they were open
so just for a moment
let me sleep
so for a while, I can be with mother
her warmth
I forget it on the sleepless nights

let me drown
to the depths of the abyss
let me sink in regret
I have to understand
the crimes I've committed
only then can I truly change

breaking loves bond

It's better to live free from
the memory of love than
to be its prisoner in life.

ghost Feb 2021
Don’t you ever want to run?
run away

A place you’ve dreamed
But never been.

Somewhere no one knows you
A place that lacks judgement
and doesn’t consume your soul.

To breathe its very air
heals all your despair.

By walking on its grounds
you discover new sounds.

Maybe it is real
Maybe it’s in our head

But I will forever seek for it
before I am dead.

this world is temporary
the money
it won't be in our graves
our possessions will be left behind
so live your life
while you can

I don't want to live

so you ask
what do I want
it's simple
I want you
ghost Jan 2021
“You are ageless,” says time with a laugh. I needed a photograph to track my past. The future is alluring, the present is getting blurry, the past chimes in with an “I told you so” so I stood up tall, head held high, and accepted that even the truth wouldn’t make me cry. “This is when you know it's over, my friend”.

m-emories of the year past
o-n a day of new beginnings
n-odding head off to silent sleep
t-humbs congealed within the wintry chill
h-ours went by to the new year

o-ut the sheets
f-allen to the side

j-ust awaken from wintry slumber
a- crowd of children ran across streets
n-eighbors greet each other of the new day
u-nder the icicle drenched oak branches
a- cardinal chirped its lonesome song
r-elishing the piercingly fresh air
y-esterday's death, today's first breath
honestly one of my favorites of 2021.

pain is your friend
it's your ally
it tells you when you've been
seriously wounded
and you know
what the best thing about pain is?
it tells you
you're not dead yet

i see us together
than you leave me
an endless pit of darkness

we try to escape demons by hiding away
and locking ourselves in our rooms
but what are we to do
when the demon follows us home?
people feign ignorance
and happiness is a trick of smoke and mirrors
when the stage is cleared
all that's left
are the scars

get up after you fall down
what if you never fell
since you never moved a step
what if you took a step
then never took one again
have you given up
or ar you tired of failing

after the battle
the blood was washed away with the rain
the sacrifices were forgotten
their lives became history
and history became a legend
and the legends were forgotten

the stone wolf
ghost Feb 2021
You made me approach
And then you disappear
I let my guard down
"You have taken advantage of it.

You made my mind, a maze.
And I lost myself.
I didn't ask for your help,
I could not...

I followed you like a gullible
In the hidden game of the world,
Waiting for the impossible.

Each time, coming up,
But moving me away.
With every step, it was done
In despair...

Making me
                      hate you,
To hate
            To hear your voice,
To hate
                To love you.

wanderer in the dark
ghost Jan 2021
Been walking in shadows for as long all my life
darkness lingering the lack of light
I can't remember the last time I felt free
Forever enslaved by the rules of society

ghost Dec 2020
time just won't stay
I guess it's bored
all it sees is greed and pointless drama
I'll make it fall in love with me
but I ended falling in love with it
so one-sided
it moved on
and I'm stuck
times up

feel those tears
ghost Jan 2021
I have been trying to fake this tough girl,
just to make them see,
that even in this rough world,
they are no one more to me.

I say I'm ok,
When I'm nowhere close to fine,
I was falling apart,
but I covered up the signs.

But now I'm gonna let them see,
what I've done to me,
I'm tired and I just want to,
Feel those Tears,
running down my cheeks,
that I held back so long,
Because they'd said I'm weak.
I want to feel those tears,
feel them wet my skin,
They've lost for so long,
this time I want to let them win,
I want to feel those tears.

The anthem used to go,
I'm ok go away.
I know I'm broken,
I'm alive, I'm awake.

But I'm not gonna lie,
not today,
I know I'm broken,
but it's not too late.

But now I'm gonna let them see,
what I've done to me,
I'm tired and I just want to,
Feel those Tears,
running down my cheeks,
that I held back so long,
Because they'd say I'm weak,
I want to feel those tears,
feel them wet my skin,
They've lost for so long,
this time I want to let them win,
I want to feel those tears.

Sometimes I don't feel like talking,
But I got to keep going, got to keep walking,
Sometimes I just want to sit here crying,
But now all I want to do is feel those tears.
this is probably one of my longest poems.

Conjure the hidden
behind the mist.
Electric in movement,
If I could only freeze this beautiful moment.
* Sheet lightning is lightning within a cloud that lights up as a “sheet” of luminosity during the flash. The lightning itself can't be seen by a spectator, so it appears as a flash, or sheet of light.

my dire apprehensions
they gracefully disappear
as the waves emerge
my eyes waterless
the wind tangled in my lashes sparked a cry
the lonely ocean
washes away my woes
as the waves emerge
the lies are purified
so the ocean heard my cry

to make sure you don't go through the same

weathered the storm
ghost Feb 2021
staring at the mirror,
despair raids her light and air

in the reflection,
blinded by her beauty,
the bright florescent light
etches furrows
traces the side of her nose
to her mouth

yesterday's shadow
creeps from behind
sends bitter ripples
down her face
a reminder
of the loneliness, she hides

deadly grind
ghost Feb 2021
When is a kidnapping not a kidnapping?
You must think I'm a clown.
The answer is all over your face,
it's when you don't want to be found.

Your life is a mobile circus,
time to cut bait.
If you don't do it soon,
you'll catch a bullet in the breastplate.

Drop off the face of the earth,
now all worries are left behind.
You would do anything
to get out of this deadly grind.

beautiful silence
beautiful pain
we're only human
we're meant to dream
lost in a life full of mistakes
we do what feels right
then fall with no grace
chased by the sun
escaping flatlines
dreams are a curse
wake up you're alive
