Chastity is sexually immoral, suitable only for the awkwardly insane.
We ****; then, we wait. We **** again.
Sometimes in between *******, we get a college degree or a job.

She Is A Daisy
David Gonzalez Nov 2015
There is nothing more I can ask for. She tells me go on, forget, advance. But how could I? I ought to tell the world about her - about her elegance, beauty, & joyous demeanor. She marvels me. Nothing ever does. Her long, shiny hair. The paleness of her pigment. Her dulcet laugh.The splendor of her freckles. The perplexity in her eyes. Oh, how they gleam.
Never will this fade.

Dawn has its verdict. It no longer awaits. The waters lie still. Ripples no longer permitted. The trees have spoken. They choose to wither.  It's a sad sad world and I lay my body on all there is that exists undetected. Gently but firmly the soul moves on.

Posthaste after I begin to ruminate and induce myself into surmising that I've finally ran out of thoughts, you appear in some obscure form. Straightaway, a cascade of endless, unfathomable emotions and indiscriminate memories pour into my pool of thoughtlessness.

We spoke eternally, yet there was something left unsaid. Something words could never deliver. Language is finite. How abhorrent.

"I seen you two together. You looked at Her and She looked at you- it was a different kind."

It's viewing the symphonies of Beethoven as vibrations, mathematical sequencing, and euphoria. Michelangelos' masterpieces as  indentations on a rock.

Momma I'm Scared

Momma I'm scared.
There's a monster under my bed.
Momma I'm scared.
The boys at school pick on me.
Momma I'm scared.
I think this girl doesn't like me.
Momma I'm scared.
I might not make it into college. Momma I'm scared.
I don't want to move out but I have to.
Momma I'm scared.
I'm in so much debt.
Momma I'm scared.
My marriage is falling apart.
Momma I'm scared.
My wife is pregnant and I don't how to be a father.
Momma I'm scared.
I'm losing the house.
Momma I'm scared.
I've grown my first gray hair.
Momma I'm scared.
Please don't die. I need you.
I'm scared momma.

Like These
David Gonzalez Apr 2014
On days like these the sun refused to shine because of people like me. We would rain eternally on the inside trying to wash away the disloyalty and sadness. We walked on shards of glass to prove that we were indestructable, however, we are just as delicate as the very bottle itself.

World's Greatest Joke
David Gonzalez Apr 2014
And I put all of my dreams, hopes, and visions in a file; I labeled it, "THE WORLD'S GREATEST JOKE." I locked this file away in a key-locked cabinet who's atoms were binded with the force of self-pity and hopelessness.

Yet we're stuck with the idea that life doesn't  revolve around us, but it does. You have to do you because no one else will. People complain about the effects of the universe but no one ever wants to do anything about it. We do not dislike the calamities that make you question "why me?" but truth is, we dislike our lack of initiative.

What if...
Hell is not a place with fire and demons.
What if...
It's a dark room with nothing but ourselves.

What greater torment can there be than isolation?
Left alone with our conscience.
Boiling and blistering in our wicked thoughts.
We are the hell we fear and everything in it.
David Gonzalez Mar 2014
No one can replace me. Our presence seems to permanently linger. Only those who dented the essence of nolgastic  memories can remain. The others fade in our memories as they had no significance. Others are forced to embrace your absence, a few morn. It seems that to only a few, we were the sparks that composed their fire, the water that nurtured them until their blossoming. But it was only few who noticed this. It was only few who felt with their hearts and thought with their minds. We are gone, like ghosts who romp with the hope that one day their animation may come into play. But our shoes have been filled and your clothes have been worn by someone else. But forever those leather shoes are too big to fill. We have no option but abandon all hope of revival, for our presence is no longer felt, our words are no longer heard, and our names are no longer spoken.

Silencing Sounds
David Gonzalez Feb 2014
I came to the conclusion that all I ever do is talk. There was no taste for words in my mouth at that moment. So I sat up on my bed at 3am on a school night. I hear my mothers' pill bottles rattling and my father's almost inaudible snore. My sister sleep talks about her rough day at work and my dog exhales loudly as he changes positions. The fridge is buzzing and water drips outside as the snow melts. There is a high frequency sound coming from the charger across the room. The roars of cars from the express way and the whistle of the wind from my cracked window. Police sirens fade as they go farther and father. My bed frame creeks as I reposition my left foot. My ears ring when all sounds seem to seize. I got it. Something, I'm sure. Now I know why they say "peace and quiet." But that phrase is redundant because now I conclude that peace and silence are synonomys.

L̶o̶v̶e̶ LUST
David Gonzalez Jan 2014
I crave your warm skin against mine.
And the tickle of your breath on my neck.
I want to grab your thighs.
And kiss your soft lips.
Feel your peach-fuzz on my cheeks.
I cannot stay and love you.
It would not be fair.
For what I feel is not love,
But simply Lust.

The Looping Routine

I can't fall asleep because today was not significant.

Today was a waste.

Anger Was A Bomb
David Gonzalez Dec 2013
My anger was a bomb.
It went off too soon.
It turned the people I loved into ashes.
It pulverized my dreams.
The entire world heard it.
So there was nowhere to hide.
I tried hiding in the corners of my soul.
Turns out that souls are circles.
So here I am...
Embarrassed and ashamed.
I think it's time that I stop caring.

The Rejuvenating Sunrise
David Gonzalez Dec 2013
I wake up every morning and immediately think about the previous day. It fascinated me how swiftly things could change. The Earth makes no promises, but it does offer us a sight. A sign of hope. The rejuvenating essence. The cliche, yet rarely seen sunrise is merely invisible to the Western World. But this is no matter of the subject. The earth itself does not judge. We simply hinder ourselves with the pains of yesterday. We ignore the fact that everyday we can reach our hands farther and hold our breaths longer.

The Paradox of Judgment
David Gonzalez Dec 2013
What right do we have to say what it is evil?
Or what is good?
Is it our position in the Animal Kingdom?
Or our so-called "Divine-Right "?
Does an ancient book give us the power to judge?
Judging is evil.
Or so in the eyes of Man.
Is our superiority  the greatest paradox of all time?
It appears to be so....

Or the sweat and dirt on your forehead?
What is it?

The Stars
David Gonzalez Dec 2013
Oh, How different the world would be if we just observed the stars?
What we might find varies.
Would we be at peace with our common humanity?
Or would we find acceptance?
Oh, how different we would be.
