dream, of a body
with strings in disarray
and spiders homed in decay—
adrift, away
in a sea of grey.
First piece after a long, long break. This is what my mind looks like lately

I think you're leaving.
Slowly.
Such a weird way to go.
In the immaterialism of your fantasy
Fading in the emptiness of the unknown.

I think you're leaving.
Silently.
Such a stupid way to go.
Within your cloudy demeanors
Disappearing at your minimum goals.

I think you're leaving.
Lazily.
Such a typical way to go.
Clueless about the dull presence
and welcomed absense you become.

I think you're leaving.
Finally.
Such a prolonged overflow.
But one day send me news from this world
you live, and I'm ******* tired of,
ok ?

Her
*****
*****, used, property
I  see her, standing in the bathroom
Gazing into the mirror
Looking, looking for me.
Though the room was all she saw,
The bed in its rightful place, the slippers
2.5 feet away and the darkness that plotted
to take me away
It engulfed us and buried me
In the depths of her despair

It took and took and took , leaving its
Marks all over me
-
prints on my skin
bruises on what was once called beautiful
nightmares in a once sound mind
-

they were more me
than I had been
because
as I lay
on that rugged carpet with
dust mites as company
with my torn clothes
pooled around me
I became her,the product of what they had done
In me,to me

Click,Clack,Clang,Click,Clack
I watched,
as all 5 locks were locked at 6:00 PM
her curfew
Rip,Rip,Rip
I watched,
As all the skirts and dresses slowly morphed
Into trousers
I watched,
Everyday,as she went about trying,
Trying to protect me
To protect us

Because I didn’t once
And we became
*****
*****,used,property

my inability to feel
plagues me
defective

the endless lies i live
the conversations in my head
they encircle me

please don't take it personally
i grow colder with each passing day

as quickly as love turns to hate
as quickly as hunter turns to prey

meaningless, empty words
meaningless, empty eyes
crying void
trying to expel

someone else to give me meaning?
no, i'd rather not
i'd rather die inside a hollow life

So frugal with the kudos,
         your gratitude, and cheer …
                   essentials I desire
                   are not to be found here.

n if you have a clue
pork who watches you move
will be taking notes
this ***** knows how it goes

n if you have a plan
pork who watches you move
will catch it, understand
this ***** is stealing souls

keep it under the knife
surgeon and patient
simultaneously
ship and astronaut
in E.V.A.

i stole the man in the moon
and now i keep him in my room

i hop into my portable radio at night
and i switch the channels
when I get a fright

outside the schools of silver coin fish,
outside, the turtle, who
for a shell, stole a gold dish

yes, you may touch me
but that doesn't make me real

this wavering water glass
is between us
in panes i cannot feel

a glint of gold smoke,
flash of a crystal cigarette

shimmered right out of the spot she stood in,
with one sparkling pirouette
