I see an island of joy
Amongst the ocean of my tears, I see an island of pure joy
My ****** eyes gaze at the glimmering sand like it is foreplay
Lured in by the mysterious grace of the unknown
I swim through despair while my lungs fill with water
Hipnotized by a mere potentiality, I learn that hope is also breathable
For I need to Know what love is and Death will not defeat me

I lean my hands foward but something pulls me down
Suffering is a grieving mother, it does not let me go
The blue sky looses color as I sink into the darkness like an anchor
But the pain of distance burns inside me and the cold can not reach my soul

The deep waves try to shred me and I let them,
As my desire travels further than my body ever could
I hit the bottom in perfect surrender
Embraced by a comunion of billions of grains of sand
They whispered in my ears a symphony of salvation
I felt the love in every tone

I once saw an island of pure joy
But I only touched it when I drowned

poison
I drank from the well of shame
And I still feel it burning inside me

Dear body
Dear body,
I feel at home inside you.
Thank you.

when my love left
It was monday night
When he wrote me a letter
With all the words he could not say
He filled his bag, and left me sleeping
I woke up empty
He told me he was evil
He told me he was saving me
And that he was doomed to be alone
I drank some coffee to taste the bitterness
If only he had asked me
I would have said I'm evil too
I would have said we could be dark together
I would have told him light is overrated
And that his eyes were enough to guide our way
But he just left
And I went to work
The computer screen was so bright
It made me sick
messy poem, just for self expression
His river encountered my waters
Flowing wild like the ocean
My waves curled around him
So we could grow bigger
And bigger
And his fishes, we both have them now
So we grew richer
And richer
Then the rain saw our love, so pure
And she blessed us,
So we grew fuller
And fuller
Each night we danced to the moon
Each day we sang to the sun
And we made them both so proud
They gave us light to guide the way
So we grew wider
And wider
Until there was no more space to grow
Then we rested
Nested by thin air
So still, so nurtured
Life herself looked at us
And Death herself looked too
They came down for a swim
In perfect comunion
We were everything.

Precious
When it’s my time to rot,
I hope I get to lie underneath blue sky
Where I can give my warmth back to the sun,
So thankful for the borrowing
I hope my skin becomes a white daisy fearlessly growing by the road
So I'll get to remind you of the beauty in the world
And maybe my cells will become a cherry
Their sweetness forever imprinted in your lips
I hope my body gets to return the gift it received,
'Cause what a precious gift
And my love, I hope it can be carried by your heart
'Cause what a precious heart.

Darkness doesn't cheat
I feel like Darkness speaks to me
And I know she is not a person
But if she was we would be best friends
I'd keep her by my side and let her hold my hand
But no, she is not a person
She could never say she loves me back
Still, I'll keep her inside
Because her hugs feel like home
And her eyes look like my own
And she never lets go
She would never let me go
Like happiness did

Bravery
Whisper in the ears of Fear
Smile in the face of Despair
Sing, oh sing the song of Bravery
Sing until Death learns how to dance

Blackberry Tree
Maybe I'll die
Underneath a blackberry tree
Maybe one day you'll eat them
And I'll get to be a part of you again
I scroll my way through life
Cause I don't have to feel the pain
With all the smiles on instagram
I don't hate my life when I'm distracted

My answer
You ask me if I'm happy
I tell you honey,
Every night I lie in bed
And I grieve
One less day on earth

I feel my heart beat
and nothing else matters
cause I feel my heart beat
nothing else matters.

split moment
Let my words reveal the hidden mysteries of the earth
And let my wrists bleed pure life like they never glanced at death
Let my tears be a river pouring joy; and let me flood the world
Oh, let the world torture me, let it burn me to ashes
Let me taste the apple, even if it's rotten
Let me go to eden, and let me meet the devil too
Let me belong
Just for a moment
Even if it's just for a moment.

Forest
The Forest will only tell her secrets
To someone as wild as her

That's why I know them all

This is what I have
Writing poetry
At 3 am
Cause my sleep went away
Like everyone else and
Words are all I have left

Ribbon Bow
Hey kid
Have you ever tried
To tie a family together
With your ribbon bow?
I could scream
to show you my pain
But I would like to keep
My vocal cords

Look what you did
When my winter days arrive
I sit on the porch and
I ask the wind
To come and kiss my skin
Not because I love the wind
Just because you are not here

Death is my new lover
I like the way that Death
Whispers in my ears
*****, ***** things
Always asking for a kiss
And I think to myself
Just how wild
would it be
If today I said
yes

Pressure Cooker
I never thought
That being stuck inside
A pressure cooker
Would look like this
Never thought
I'd still feel cold

  Help?

The devil and I
I've been dancing with the devil
And what I love the most about him
Is that he lets me be myself

Eye of the Hurricane
Right here,
In the eye of the hurricane
Everything makes sense.
Right here,
Everything is real.
And if the hurricane ends up killing me,
Oh well,
What a wild death would it be.

Deep Waters
I want to swim
In a ocean
That tastes
Like him.

I am tired
How can you read
a history book
With all the blood
on the pages?
...
Love doesn't say "excuse me"
Love finds a tiny crack
Between the walls of hatred
And then
Oh...
Then love gets in.

Enemies
As I stared
Deeply in the eyes
Of my pain
Exausted
And I was ready to breathe my last breath
I told her
I am done being scared of you.
I am done running away.
She cried;
Her eyes so wide
And gave me a hug;
Her arms so desperate
In that exact moment,
My last moment,
I saw.
She was never a monster.

— The End —
