A melancholy tune
from the deep of the sea
pulls me in, broken-hearted

Even if the happiness

There isn't a worse pain than losing who you love most
Should have known from the start, we're not on the same coast
But we keep falling back into each other, without knowing why
Maybe it's because neither of us can actually say goodbye
This life goes on, but we continue to carry this weight
Perhaps we met too early, but now we're too late
You say we have to let go, and yet I still hold on
I'm holding you back; I've been doing it for so long
But isn't that the entire thing though
You stay here in this, even though you could go
The words you convince me by, but you don't follow
If we both gave up, we would meet our all-time low
Life goes on, as it's supposed to do
Told myself I was doing it all for you
All that there is to do and discover
But we're so focused on one another
I only want what's best for you, without letting you go
It's contradictory, to say the least, I really should know
You're all I have, at least that's what I've thought
I can't let you go now that feelings have been caught

Hippie Gent in a Tie-Dye
deadhead May 13
When I look at you
I see colors I never knew
No simple tones or shades
Colors that will never fade
So vibrant and bright
They take over the night
Colors that bleed, but don't mix
Staring at them could fix
I miss you and your colors...

like they're seeds

so that they may

beautiful feelings

them to be
gosh, you're so dreamy ;3

i refuse to bow down to modern policies
all they do is lie and feign their apologies.
promising to protect all we have left
when they're the ones responsible for the theft,
robbing us of our lives all for the "greater cause"
forcing us to abide by the most outrageous of laws.
they try ever so hard to make sure that you fail
and if you somehow make it past, they throw you in jail
you dare to have a voice, and they tear you apart
by trying to crush your spirit and heart.
stealing the land to claim and sell as their own
just so they can replace all of the beauty with silicone.
i can't just stand by and watch this anymore
i'll use my words in a way in which they can't ignore.
i have but one more thing that i want to say, or rather, ask
i could never do this alone, do you suppose you'd be up to the task?
i'm tired of sitting idly by, watching the world be destroyed by my own kind

The mulberries swell
in the heat of the summer,
causing the atmosphere
of the woods to become
rather cloying and thick
when i was a kid, i used to go out to our "hidden" spot to eat wild mulberries, i suppose i felt inspired by the memory :)

Light and Dark
deadhead Apr 29
I don't consider
light and dark
to be opposites.
They're just the same;
they couldn't exist
without the other.
The light needs the
dark in order to shine,
and the dark needs
the light in order to exist.

The Observer
deadhead Apr 28
i sit alone in the night
and listen to the world.
the breeze that just barely
caresses the bark of trees,
making the leaves shiver.
the quiet call of a sleepy dove
echoes faintly, making the feral cat
sneak a look up at the sky
and catching a glimpse of the
cloud-shrouded moon.
i, the observer, also look to the moon
watching the clouds glow with sliver light
listening to the dove coo one last time

what are you looking
for in a woman?
must she wear bells
on her shoes,
or be about twice
your height?
does she need to know
how to wade in a
drop of dew?
shine like the queen
of diamonds?
i don't know,
lay beneath the roses?
you're probs not gonna really get it unless you have great taste in music ;)

Wonders of Rain
deadhead Apr 22
why are you downcast
whenever rain starts to pour?
is it not beautiful?
the smell, almost sweet
on the earth, where the grass
looks now bejeweled
and webs between each blade
wears the droplets like pearls.
The bark of trees soften a bit,
and the leaves, like hair, drip
with the residual rain.
Do you not find this beautiful?
Not even the colors in the sky,
somehow mixing oranges and blues
in a way that isn't contrasting.
How I wish the sky was tangible!
