Nightmares
Dylan Chavez Aug 2012
A memory, or a distant past,

Once upon a time, it was real

Now were just lost in time,

And in your minds



The pain is all you feel,

Of life and of death

The cool slice of a knife

The click, of a cocked gun

Or the breeze from a plunge



We thrive on it

But only in your mind,

Your fears, they project us

But to everyone else im nothing…

Just dead



Those who see us, fear us

Closed eyes shadow the darkness

To all our souls,

And as the light flickers,              

You’re drained



And so the dark brings us light to live

As demons, fears, nightmares…

So tell me, am I truly real

Or just a dream?

Sleepless nights and starry skies
2. Autumn breeze it fills my eyes
3. Hoping that you'll tell to me
4. I(n) between the lines, is what I want you to see
5. Waiting for that special night
6. Love in the air, I hope this is right
7. Wishing, wanting all to be true, read what I say and I'll tell
8. You. _________

Winter Chill
Dylan Chavez Sep 2011
Winter Chill

Is it wrong
That all I want to do
Is to fall asleep under the stars
Lying here,
Right next to you

I think about it all the time
If your his
Or just all mine

We'll fall together
Fast asleep
Here together
We feel our heartbeats

The wind is fast, cold, and deep
I'll cuddle you here, until you sleep
And make you warm, with our soft touch
Hoping one day it's just us

Ill crash and thrash up all night
Only after the midnight sky
Waiting for you to be all mine
I'll hold you here until the end of time

Memories
Dylan Chavez Sep 2011
A memory, a distant past,
Which once was real, but now lost in time
To everyone, But you
You who remembers me
Whose fears fuel my existence
Those fears so fond to your heart
The ones of me, you,
The children,
Our family
These fears that let me live,
But only in your mind,
Your heart,
Your soul projects mine
And together we are always intertwined.
But to everyone else im nothing but gone,
Just dead,
And crazy to the world
But everything we had is what kept me alive.
So tell me, Am I real?
A dream?
or maybe just a memory

Twisted
Dylan Chavez Sep 2011
I tried to forget,
I tried to run,
I left so far away
Just to forget,
But I can't,
Forget.
Your memory stuck to my head
Like gum to a desk,
Just sitting there,
Getting filled with more pieces
Of time we spent
Of time we shared
Of memories lost
Of memories gained,
The good, the bad
The happy, and sad
These twisted memories
Of what we are?
Who we are?
But honestly were we anything?
Friends,
Or...
Lovers...
Lost to a disenchanted sense of time,
when things were simpler
Carefree,
Were school didn't matter
And looks weren't everything,
Were time and distance couldn't separate us.
That place is nothing more than a nightmare
A place I can't go,
A place of dark twisted dreams
That show the truth
A truth I can't yet know,
So..
I won't go,
I shouldn't go,
But I went,
And I came.
I found the truth
But what is truth?
Truth is just lies
Lies upon lies
Lies told throughout time,
Lies told so much
They become truths ,
So what is the truth?
You,
Me,
Together?
Maybe,
Maybe not,
All I can say is
My truth is my nightmare
My nightmare is my life
My life is my lie
And my lie is you.

Crush
Dylan Chavez Sep 2011
Roses are red
Violets are blue
These words make me sick
When all I think about is you
So, I'll re-write this poem and make it a new
To tell a story all about you

Stunning and gorgeous, beautiful and dear
These people don’t give a **** about you or how you feel
So keep your head up and all will become clear
Soon enough you’ll learn who to keep near

So when your smile fades away
And your heart's all gone
You’ll think about the day
It all went wrong

And you try and just live
But these people bring you down
Tears from your face fall all over the ground
Your eyes glimmer blue, so sad and so true
All you can think about is who?

You’ll sit in your house
And look at the sky
You’ll stare at the stars
And wonder why?

But when stars cross and patterns align
I can tell you that you’re always on my mind
Through thick and thin, and times of fear
I’ll tell you that I’m always here.

So after I left and people came through
I Thought of all the ways that I Miss You
I thought of the summer, and all of the fun
Than wondered if I was staring at a loaded gun

So, when the drugs won’t give
And the lies don’t help,
We’re not just this crush
All ****** up in a rush.

Our hearts will beat
Together to this song
And with the rhythm
Together as one

And the world will spin and twist all around
Waiting for that moment to bring it all around
And hopefully you’ll see
That there's a story inside about you and me

And when it’s all over,
I hope it’s me and you
I’ll sign this letter, “Forever to You.”
Oh, and P.S. I Love You!

— The End —
