The Last Meeting Place
marc rios Feb 12
One day,
When dust and ashes becomes us
And all there's left is a house made of memories
I hope i'd see you
In a life after the end.

Underwhelmed
marc rios Sep 2022
When you thought the problem would be as shallow as it can get
Only to find yourself
Gasping for breath later

Not knowing if you'll drown
Or get over it

Only if its a sleep away
marc rios Aug 2022
You have no fault nor i can blame you for my misery
If this pain will fade a sleep away
I'd fall faster than how my heart did
When our path crossed way

L(a)cking
marc rios Jul 2022
Did i drank too much medicine
To make me sick?

Did i took your poison in disguise
In thoughts it could heal me?

Did i pushed the antidote away
So you wouldn't go?

Do i just love to self sabotage
And think someone would
Come and rescue?

Or am i just too damaged
To think i don't
deserve any better

STAY, FALL, AND SPROUT
marc rios Jul 2022
As you grow and blossom
Some leaves will stay
Some falls and some sprouts
But you just have to keep standing
Because as they all come and go
No one but only yourself
Is always going to be there
To water you with strenght
Fertilized you with dreams
And give you your own sunlight
When you are about to succumb and falter

Loosing Battles
marc rios Jun 2022
Kept my pride at bay
To win your trust.
Im loosing dignity for you

Withdrawn my right
And questioning my worth.
Im loosing sanity for you

Attempted to reach for the stars
And thought outside of hundreds of boxes.
Im loosing quality time for my self because of you

I tried to gave you everything
And i recieved nothing but misery
Im loosing a lot of battles for you
But i am not further allowing myself to lose me

I am finally choosing to lose you.

THORNS

I was your rose and you were mine
But we have grown thorns
Left with no other choice
But to free one another
From endless pain
And sorrow

World on Fire

It only takes one eye to see
What monster the people have become
Yet even with two
Many still chose to get blindly
Selfish and arrogant

A line of silver
marc rios Apr 2022
I wish i could take this pain out of my chest
Because i know for sure
That tonight i will be weeping in my sleep
I know for sure
That when i wake up tomorrow
The ache will only continue
The next day will be the same

But i am hoping for a night
Where i will sleep loved
And wake up tomorrow
Blessed

Temporary satisfaction
marc rios Apr 2022
I kept everything hidden
Stacked behind the thickest wall i built
It made me felt safe
It gave me all the hapiness in the world
Until one day the wall leaked
Suddenly im sitting somewhere alone
Pathetic and sad

The spaces behind it is no longer empty
All these painful memories rushing are making me weary
There is no running now
There is no escaping now
As a single tear drops from my eye
I realized the price i paid for that wall
Was myself
marc rios Mar 2022
I can feel it
This pain
This sorrow
This color of grey
Is tainting my innocence

This feeling is new
Perhaps it's what they all call
Heart Break?

Nightmare worth dreaming
marc rios Feb 2022
All i can see is red
In a nightmare about you
Myself advised me to love you
Myself warned me to hate you
And all i did was watch me
Fall deeper for you

All i see is regret
For not loving you enough
And for loving you too much

I caused myself pain
And love not like anyone else's
It was worth remembering and forgetting
It was a nightmare worth dreaming

Painful Cut
marc rios Feb 2022
The day i lost you
Was the day i lost a piece of me
You were the reason
I raised above
But now the reason
Why im drowning

The day i lost you
Was the beginning of a new chapter
Pages of blanks
Ghost written by sorrow and pain

The day i found you
Was bittersweet
Because it led to a yesterday of love
Left to a present with our memories only

One full moment
marc rios Feb 2022
I dont need you to promise me
Your everlasting love
One timeline can be timeless
One happy ending can feel endless
One lifetime could easily feel lifeless
But im holding your hand
Walking in the rain
Warming each other seamingless

Silhouetted world
marc rios Jan 2022
They said my blood is tainted
With the color of disgrace
They said my blood is magenta painted
I should never show my face

They say it with their mouth
Im poisoned
They show it with their faces
Im not accepted

They frown upon me
And i doubt myself everyday
What is this misery?
A question i hope answered someday

My friends went away
And i stayed drunk
I stayed thirsty for love

I stayed addicted
To your poison paradise
In remorse

Bag of Emotion
marc rios Jun 2021
I like how my cheek still smiles
How my eyes stop rains
And how i act like i have the bravest heart

Just like the lil riding hood
Smiling stupidly
Failing faithfuly
Unkowingly walking to the slowest death
Caused by a poisoned mentality

Searching for
What i can be
Who i can become
And where i can fit
Is easier said than done

But until then
Ill just keep filling
Myself like a bag
Dumped with unresolved resolutions

Elastic Heart

I have thick skin
And an elastic heart

But your blades it might be too sharp

Im like a rubber band
Until you pulled too hard

Well i may snap, but i move fast
You wont see me fall apart

Into the surface of my skin
Sitting by the roof
Wondering.
Millions of thoughts i could think
And one only surfaced
It's face and it's beauty
It's the galaxy that i see

Butterfly Effect
marc rios Jun 2021
like the butterfly effect
It's so easy to regret
but
I will never change
The way we left

Though I wish you never broke my heart
I don’t want a brand new start
I'm not me without my scars

- A band called "Before You Exit"
Please take time to visit this band, you will never regret it. Their kinds of music are high quality yet so underrated.......

Pending Hope
marc rios Jun 2021
For a moment, I thought I could be happy

For a moment, I thought I could be free

But the pain of my past lingers

So i sat in the dark
Alone and hopeful

That tommorow is the day
A beggining of something beautiful

If only trees can speak

It will gossip the untold

And unfold mysteries

For it sees the passing storm
And feels the calmest wind
It will become the greatest storyteller
That makes one wonder into the unlikely
Thoughts of the world
Folktales directly from the source

Untitled Feeling
marc rios May 2021
Sometimes
I wonder what would it be like
If i told you my truth
If i shared you my story
If i offered you a door to my heart

I would have never ever wear a mask again
But i just dont think i have it in me
I don't have the guts
To open the pandora's box inside me
