Can you sense it from afar?
Am I in your peripheral?
I hope you can't see me
I hope when you walk
A thought of me does not enter your mind
Keep walking, I never want to stop

The truth is
You'll die without ever knowing my face

I'm not going home
morallygray Sep 12
When I stepped into your room
On your bed where we used to love
It took everything I had to not cry
A hand covering below my eyes
To not let you see the emotion fall
Along my face
So devoid of anything
I'm sorry I left without a word
Don't be scared to make a mistake, you'll feel better knowing you tried

Can you feel the heat
That radiated off you
That followed you
As you left
It slowly died
With every step you took
Away from me

What has wilted
morallygray Sep 3
If not a window then by thoughts may i float
In the sky or the thin pocket of air that surrounds my brain
My ears scream at me everyday so you won't have to
I tremble and clutch anything that you may have approached
The speed limit sign waving back at me
"Andale, andale"
As the feeling in my fingers concede
So does my arms
then walking can't occur and lay as i have these past months

We often start a poem with you or I
Sometimes unintentionally
It just goes to show
How much the soul needs another person

Hell doesn't exist
morallygray Dec 2020
The hell that so many say awaits us
Is right at our feet
We survive it everyday

I wonder why
Why a sunset evokes so much emotion
I sat on a hill facing one
I knew it would be back the next day
But it felt like the world was ending

Old carpet
morallygray Nov 2020
A tiny Midwestern boy
The hay in his pocket at the corn maze
Grown by the ways of pine trees and baseball practice
With his only motivation that things will get worse

The wolf
morallygray May 2020
The wolf it runs it hides
Jumping with teeth snarling
Run run you cannot escape
The wolf inside
I can't escape it either
Please run
Before i feed
On your body

Meet me in the kitchen

Even if you spend the rest of your life with the person you love
It will never feel like enough time

Happy to hear your voice
morallygray Apr 2020
We call
I tell you i want to die
You talk about your fish
Even in silence
You talk about it
Like it will make me go away
I probably know more about that fish than you now.

As quickly as the first is whisked away
The second was too far to begin with
There has now been far too many to count
I stopped after the first
They seem the same after a while
Like a stack of rocks on a log
I stack them

Swan song
morallygray Dec 2019
She danced like she lived on the moon
And spoke in a tongue i couldnt hear
She was a swan in this oil pond
And many creatures pursued her
How she moved, and breathed
I watched all day and night
For her beauty superseded all
She was the swan
My swan song

Wake up
morallygray Dec 2019
In these dreams I've seen myself die
The bullet pierce my skull and my head explode
I watch myself lay there
As a ghost
It makes me wonder as to if I am even present
In the many letters of life
They will never spell my name
I do not know how I'm still alive

Earth vs
morallygray Dec 2019
We lay together amongst the earth
Gazing at what seems unobtainable
I am in awe
The light that may not even be there
Oh it is so hot
I am grounded again
By the star that sits next to me

The regret
morallygray Dec 2019
I saw you staring
Out of the corner of my eye
Like a vulture at a carcass
You sat next to me
And kept staring at me
You tried to speak
But i did not hear (i did)
I was a fool
i will probably not get to see your hoop earrings again.

Eres el camino a la felicidad
Una lágrima para ti
Sentir es dolor
Algún día serás un recuerdo
In english: you are the path to happiness
A teardrop for you
To feel is pain
Someday you will be a memory

I watch you from your window
Your angel
How you move, how you breathe
Sewn into my eyelids
Why can't you see me
Just look, only for a second
But for now
I am your shadow

Carry me with your waves
I cannot separate thoughts from it
Your exterior
I bite into it, that's where the addiction lies
Creo que sientes lo mismo
Even your aches I think of every aching moment
This is the devil, but i am done with heaven

Our Place
morallygray Oct 2019
I had a dream
I sat on a rock with a girl, i could not see her face
She told me she'd meet me there again
We always missed each other
She'd sketch little drawings for me on the rock
I knew it had to be you
I saw you in the dream, sat with you
Another girl walked in and said
"Did you like what i did with our place"
I knew then I was meant
To let you go

I see a butterfly emerging from a cocoon
Struggling to fly
I know somewhere, someone is watching me
that butterfly that is struggling to fly
Every down hill for you is an uphill for someone else

memerizing memory
morallygray Sep 2019
I do not think of you with love
No, you are the deadly sin
I think about you and when we touched
Not when we laughed
Lust not love.
To feel your hands dig into my back
Was better than any kiss you ever gave me.

Cupid is the devil

Into my heart, an arrow
On your back, the quiver.

Is this a hangover
morallygray Sep 2019
Awaken I did to fleeting darkness bellowing from the sky
On the wrong side of the bed I fell off onto the floor
Dazed, I decided to go back to sleep
I woke up on the wrong side of the floor.
I'm getting too old for this ****.

I know not of what I write
As it does not come from me
In fact I'm unconscious
My heart is writing for me

Give way, and let fall what has been held
I will be there to grab
To embrace
Whatever it is
I will be the dam

You meet me
I steal from you
What I stole is now part of me
You will forever be with me

To examine the feeling of love is difficult
I do not wish to share the same
My curiosity perseveres
I will not cry for you
My hugs will be that of a mannequin
You may wrap me in flowers
But I will sleep soundly

A deer in my road
morallygray May 2019
I hit a deer, its blood drying on me
It wept and cried in agony
It was my fault
I cried with it
I had to do what i took away from it
I had to be strong and live on
I gripped its neck in my hands and twisted it
The twist ended all sadness.
The deer was to be hunted anyways
I think i did it a favor, this world is cruel to deers.

I feel better when people are miles from me
I dislike everything about them
Their faces
How they speak
It all is scary for such a creature like me

Fly with me
morallygray Apr 2019
Walk with me
Lowly caterpillars
Embrace each other
We evolve
Emerge anew
In eternal bliss we fly
We shall fly no more
Remember when we didn't have to remember?
A lowly caterpillar feeds from a plant grown from my remains
morallygray Apr 2019
I want to die here
With you
Your dead body in my arms
Wrapped like my little mummy
I look into your empty eye sockets
I drop a tear into them
You do not say a word
We shall become one with the earthworms

A profound knowledge for chess
Nearly unparalleled in talent
Beat the many odds against him
But oh so alone, to practice all day and night
Deemed insane and a hermit
Forgotten by many
You can win a many times, but once you stop
You're forever labeled, a loser.

I miss my father
morallygray Mar 2019
I miss my father
He's not dead, but it seems like he is
Doesn't talk
At least not to me
Where'd you go dad?
I know I couldn't be all the son you wanted
But I tried
I know we tend to forget about dads
But from the bottom of my heart I wanted to say

I love you, dad.

ribs exposed
mirrored full image
abandoned health
Wasting away waist
to say a goodbye
to both people
and food
you can cure darkness
but it won't stop it
from invading my body again

A field of roses
Where we walked
The sun beaming off your face
Tender and delightful

I visit that same field of roses
Only now it is I who walks them
The sun beaming off my tears drops
In pain and dying

You were my rose
My reason for getting up and walking
My sunshine and light
But now you are my rock, so deep in the ground.

I know now
morallygray Feb 2019
I miss all of those who I have forgotten
All those friends I left at the age of 12
Their young faces cemented in my memory; that is all I will remember of them

As I grow older
My thoughts get younger
Fleeting time equals new found regret
My knees fail and my face sags

I will become just a statistic
I will be an ignored grandfather in a retirement home
I will be another cloud soldier with no name
I think I am OK with that.

In a hole
morallygray Feb 2019
In a hole playing with toy guns
Childhood caressing me
In a hole wielding a shovel
Adulthood killing me
In a hole where I am pale
Death saving me

— The End —
