Should You (Not?)
Jason Trinh Oct 3
Should you not find me...
Defining life by seconds
Etching memories on my hands
Should you not find me...
Rehearsing methods in the dressing room
Defining life, I assume
Gin and tonic
Misprint logic
Should you not find me...
Beautifully catastrophic

Road Trip Remedy(?)
Jason Trinh Sep 26
As if we understood our values
Confiding stars...
Champagne sinews...
Yours to keep but the roads' mistake
Coaxing sanctums...
Concrete sweepstakes...
Jason Trinh Sep 21
A season of choice
Memories invoiced
To be gone in a few...
More or less than two...
Twice the entendre
Twice the look with you

Blanketed turquoise
Rolling tales -- no royce
Conclusions withdrawn...
Conclusions foregone...
I do//don't want'cha
Bittersweet mantra

3rd Floor: Room 303
Jason Trinh Sep 16
Ivory chords...
Timeless records...
Lips in motion...
We're standing steel...

Bubbles and bites...
Our northern lights...
Blackened ocean...
A wondrous feel...

Cheers, vin de pays...
Piers, words, maybe...
Velvet notion...
Lets, oh yes, we'll...

Master of Emotions(?)
Jason Trinh Aug 3
He hides it all too well
Twisting reality for none other than himself
A jester, unresolved, blasé
Comforted by the masquerade
Beneath the canvas
He trembles...

Rythem and hues
Discussing colors
Our favorite place
Singing in strokes
Heart plastered canvas

Vintage Vanity

Vintage vanity
Virtuoso of disguise
Beautifully broken
Glass-made compromise
Petal picking sanities
Episodic merchandise
Fantastic false reality
My sweet sweet paradise

A fragmented personality,
Convinced of this false reality,
Ghosts by tomorrow,
Leaving glitter in the clouds,

The he who was,
Wasn’t what he thought of him,
Sunsets through an open window,
Cascading down on a whim,

Conclusions foregone,
Exactly the way it should be,
Twice the entendre,
Oh the way she holds me,

Open wounds warmly treated,
Her velvet red lullaby,
No better time to feel alive,
Smiling when I die,

A fragmented personality,
Convinced of this false reality,
Dreams I don’t know,
Painting gold on my doubts,

Window panes stained with your reflection,

Seeing your transparent complexion,

Questioning these four walls,

Prints deranging the halls,

Must you go?

Must you go...

Dance Floor
Jason Trinh Feb 2018
You got what you asked and more
What the hell am I fighting for
Tears right outside your door
Broken tiles on the dance floor.

Lover's Ache
Jason Trinh Feb 2018
Written swords,
Broken chords,
Misty eyes as we trade rage.

Lovers' sake,
Hearts we take,
Wars that we could never wage.

Say the words,
Blissful thirds,
Souls touch as we turn the page.

Though when I look into your eyes,

I see a thousand miles left uncharted,

Leafless trees have yet to bud,

Midnight stars are expected to shine,

Let loose of all your worries,

For a rose without thorns does not deserve to be entitled as a rose, my

Disclose your constellations,

Bathe in his celestial seas,

Stretch your arms through the void for the sake of lover's unease.
Somber is a poem that expresses one's anxiety when it comes to realizing how nervous and brittle the other lover feels in regards to commitment. Perhaps it's reasonably difficult for the individual to sail in unfamiliar waters--for commitment is a sea that has never been explored before. Give that individual plenty of time and plenty of space. It's hard, truly it is. It's hard to suppress your intimacy in a time where you feel as if you should give more. Be passionate. Be prudent. Be patient.

Irises paved against the ceiling,
Closing in on all things somber,
Fingers sky-scraping through the darkness,
Fingers begging you to want this.

All is black,
But our constellations shine brightly,
Trying to connect the stars,
Trying to remind you of the "we can's" and "we are's".

See past inevitability,
Connect the stars between us two,
Grow out of your fears,
Grow with faith for the sake of these tears.
Have you ever been forced in a situation that requires you to remind, if not beg, the love of your life to keep the faith? It's a position that's fearful for both individuals. Be patient, be hopeful, be faithful, be empathetic, be gentle with your approach. While it takes two to see it through, sometimes it's up to you to save love.

Flying high like I've lost sight,
Let loose of all these worries--I just might.

The world I imagined when love was poetry,
The words I wanted--you stopped showing me.

I'm closing the gap--I'm saying good bye,
I'm letting go--I'm soaring high.

Melt my soul away,
Melt the promises you've made.

Burning deeply under the sun,
Burning softly compared to what you've done.

Surrealism at my right,
Celestial reality up above,
Oh how I missed this feeling,
The feeling of being in love.

Euphoric palettes gladden my toes,
Living 30,000 high on 28,
Let these desires come between us,
Let time do all but separate.

So tell me that all is fine,
Tell me that this is where we belong,
Cliche 35s on repeat,
Cliche moments all night long.

Does it have to end so soon,
Leave your love with a kiss,
Oh how I missed this feeling,
The feeling of something like this.

— The End —
