An Invitation
max Aug 2021
I love
The way the rain
Can be so soft
Gently tapping at my window
An invitation
It extends in the form of soft drops
Dripping down my face
And my hands
As I dance with you
And yet
The torrential downpour
So devastating
It drowns
It molds
It rises and ebbs and flows and
Fills your lungs
Like sweet honey
In the stomach of the bear
So completely
I cannot breathe
It causes the wind to howl and scream
And shake the birds from their trees
And the lightning to flash
And scream inside
Every nerve of my fingertips
And every curve of my bones
It arches my spine
And it feels divine
As the rain cries for me
From the sky
I wonder
Why the invitation was so welcoming
Yet maybe it was heavenly
Because heaven is where I’m headed

All of my friends
Left me again how
Odd of them to say they’d
Never leave and yet
End things so abruptly.

It’s sound sick
And twisted
And melancholy

But god
I hope you miss me so much when I die

I hope you collapse in agony as my casket is lowered into the ground
I hope you plant new flowers once a week on my headstone
And wear black in mourning
I hope you never take another lover
I hope even the thought of someone touching you the way I do now makes you weep

I hope that
If nothing at all
I meant enough to you that
You break down your walls
And stop guarding your emotions
And let yourself feel the pain of my death

I pray that
Maybe if I can succeed
I’m letting you down slowly
As o fade away into nothingness
Then maybe I had a purpose

Morbid, I know

The boundaries we have built
The skin and flesh and blood
That you hide behind
I am unable to mend your broken bones
And set my hand upon the soft, beating thrum of your heart
I am confined to my wrinkles and my scars
I am entrapped by my scars and bruises
I am unable to touch you the way we only may be able to in death
Or bones caress each other
Our teeth gnashing violently as we fight for dominance
I will never find it possible to break beyond your walls
I am unable to full understand the complexities of your mind

if being sad is a bad thing
why does she look so beautiful when she cries

When I found that I had been destroyed by you
My heart swelled with the warmth and comfort of finally having a purpose
I am empty
You have consumed me
I have never felt more complete

When did you figure out exactly
How to
Integrate yourself into my
Soul? You consume every
Percentage of my being, you are now
Everything I ever needed to
Rid myself of in order to maintain

You always used to tell me
How much you didn’t deserve me
Like it was a good thing
But in reality you just deserved so much better.

In a world
Where being one in a million
Is a bad thing
Because being just one
Of a million things you love
Is a sad thing

I have spent
My entire life
Trying to figure out
How to be everybody else
To the point where
I don’t even know who I am anymore

I just wanted to thank you
For existing

Even now
That your existence
Is over

I haven’t spoken a word
In several hours
Nobody has noticed
They do not care
They enjoy my silence

They only notice me when I annoy them

I gave her the moon
And every single star
As a token of my adoration
And she gave me
In return
The one freckle
On her nose
That I always stated at
And admired

As a thank you for the blazing center of the sun
And my charred skin
She gave me the eyelash
I swept off of her cheek

In reply
To my manny sonnets and songs
Commending her on her beauty
She gave me the single
Glistening year
Soft and dewy as it cascading down the curvature of her porcelain skin
And settled on her lips

The ones I will kiss one last time
Before they are kept six feet away from
Underneath my toes

The toes that still twitch in pain at the memory of the hot coals I walked on when she was busy kissing him.

To distract you from the storms and shadows leaking from my lips

I am a stranger to my own existence
Yet I fall victim to the delusion
That I have control over it

I am numb to the gravity of my life
Yet I insist that it is mine to take

I am detached from my own body
Yet I reprimand it
Ashamed of its shape and pallor

I am nothing to myself
And yet something to the weeds
That will one day feed from the dirt covering my grave

Cause baby you’re as beautiful  
As a flower at a funeral
Not wilted or dead, at all
We humans envy your perseverance
But your lack of appearance
At the wake sure takes some gall
And I wonder baby blue
Why do they call you violet?
Evergreen is green forever
Till the winds get violent
When life gets tough
You jump ship
Decorate the grave
As if the person in it gives a ****

Burying my heart
In your hands
Like it’s a treasure map
Showing my love for you
Hiding my kiss
In your mouth
Like it’ll be the last
Thing I ever do
Lowering myself into the ground
I won’t even make a sound
Burying myself
So you don’t have to

Funny how the little things sting the most
When everyone you love has turned to ghosts
And this aching faking feeling starts to take your bones
And in trying to be happy you might have overdosed

I would hate nothing more
Than for someone to say
‘I would die for you’
As if it’s romantic
As if it’s supposed to impress me
I could never exist in a world where you aren’t by my side
So don’t be a fool and take that away from me
Idk will delete soon probably

Loving her
Was so difficult
It was like smoking a cigarette
Because I hated it so much
But craved it every day
Needed her taste on my tongue
I loved the rhythm
The consistency
Hated the mornings after
And the disease in my lungs
Even though she smelled so sweet
It was like she poisoned me every day
Yet I kept coming back for more

Like I know every relationship has its ups and downs but loving you is like riding a rollercoaster with no brakes

Life gave me lemons
A fitting gift
To squeeze into the wounds you left on me.

Oh how to fill the hole in the heart of a man who has lost the universe
How to satisfy the needs of a creature who has kissed goodnight to every dying star
And laid his hand upon the curvature of the end of time

Oh how to be enough for someone who has everything and cares so little for it

You are the song I haven’t written yet
Because it was inspired by the most beautiful thing in earth
And I don’t have the strength to put it into words

You are the story I have written on the insides of my arms
With a marker who’s ink is red
You are the story I want to read to my grandchildren before they go to bed

You are the moon who’s scars I want to see up close
And remind you that just because the sun is so bright
Doesn’t mean you deserve to choke

You are the shadow waiting for me beyond the smoke

You are my first love and my dying breath
You’re the painting I left unfinished
Because I barely even know you yet

But I hope you realize how beautiful you really are.

Pick the rose
Prepare for the thorn
Love the thorn
Like it’s the softest petal

If I faltered
For just a moment
Standing at the altar
Would you notice
Or would you be
Far too busy
Looking past me
Looking at him

I wonder do I look
As empty as I feel
And is anything I feel

From my childhood nightmares
Except now you lay atop my bed

And I am a star

Small and distant

Wishing one day I could shine as brightly as you

Did you notice it was raining?
The day that we first met
I wonder if that was god crying
Because he knew what would happen next.

Steal the
Air from
My lungs

And the
Heart beating
Loudly in
My chest

Kiss me
Like you
Missed me

And you’re
The one who
Knows me

Scare me
Scar me
And hide
My thoughts
So alarming

Hide me
Cry with me
And maybe

Just maybe

Love me too

I texted you last night
Turns out I’m still blocked
I just wanted to tell you
My worlds been rocked

I had a dream we were together
Went on a perfect date
But I woke up alone
Cause your feelings were fake

I can’t text you if I need help
Cant kiss you when I’m lonely
I just wish I’d given you the chance
To really, truly know me

I wanted to give you back
All the things you left in my house
After you left me

But the memories
Are persistent
And ever-existing in every crevice
Of the old home

They will not fit inside the box
And rather choose to crawl into my dreams
And remind me of what I’ve lost

I often feel
Like an apple
Red, and shiny

Until you came along
And took a bite out of me
But decided I was too sour
And left me to rot

But I will never be whole again

I could write something beautiful
And poetic
About his lack of love for me
But the emptiness
Consumes all my senses
And I fear all the words that come to mind when I think of him are

‘How could you?’

It I shot myself in the head
Would blood and brains come pouring out
Or would flowers start to grow instead?
Are my thoughts too impure
Since I have nothing left to live for
Will the weeds of evil thoughts begin to root me to the floor?
I think there’s a little love here
If you give it room
Let’s find some air to breathe
And some flowers to bloom.

Do you realize the extent of your white privilege?
When watching our friends of color get murdered doesn’t make you livid?
If this were for them, there’d be bodies lining the streets
Meanwhile our president laughs and spreads lies with his tweets
Trump is an idiot

Held me
When I was afraid

Listened to me
When I was upset

Comforted me
When I was crying

Left me
When I needed him most

Remains here, still
An empty shell of what once was
A pitiful looking ghost

The pain manages to get so much scarier

Because nothing can stop you when you lose control

After I die
I know you’ll say
‘I had no idea’
Maybe if you looked a little deeper
You’d see why I was bleeding
The signs were there all along
But you don’t care, do you?
Cause I’m not you
And you only care about yourself.

I hate
That I’m kinda ******* glad
You broke her heart

It made me happy
That the person who treated me poorly
Got poorly treated by you
But is it worth
What she’s going through?

I wonder if I’ll feel it
When you die
After I’ve already passed
The second death
After you’re gone
No one will remember me anymore
I hope it doesn’t hurt

There was a time
In this universe
Where we coexisted
Breathed the same air
Spoke the same words
Walked the same steps
But I didn’t know you yet
I call those times the dark days
Because my life means nothing if you’re not in it
Dec 2020 · 155

You once promised me you’d take me to the moon
Yet here I am
Shivering with the stars
And lighting myself on fire with the sun
To see if I still feel something

My everything was nothing to you
But your nothing was everything to me
