I knew you in a past life
We were arch enemies
Constantly fighting
You killed me in battle
You were filled with remorse
So you found me in this lifetime
Just to declare another war
i knew you in a past life
Dinamus Jul 11
You say I've changed
Into something I can't recognise
Yet still I wage
War on your cold scathing eyes

So tell me who
The predator or the prey?
You look into the mirror
And see everyday

True colours are but shades
Wearing them like an effigy
Plastic, like make believe tales
Is this who I'm meant to be?
Leifa May 31
Our lids hold the g r a v i t y  
        Of sleepless generations

Big man, I warn you-
Do not blink.

You pointed out
all my favorite love stories begin in hatred
an offhand comment about the books and shows
I consume like air

I realized there's nothing I want more
then for someone to see me for my worst
pick apart every negative attribute

yet still promise to love me
all of me
im terrified of disappointing
A spell of bone cold
to remind us that a magic
rules all
our knotted muscles contract
as the frigid air kisses
with wool and other matters
we try to defend
Man Jan 31
it was a cuckoo who flew the coup
took wing from his nest
off to push out eggs, like ***-pa
just another everyday coup d'etat

leopard leaping from his perch
pushing onward toward his prey
a small friend to no feline
trapped in a quick sand
left only to bay

you are these animals

I took one look at you and I knew,
You will always be my first love,
The love we once share was beautiful,
Felt like we were the only two in the room,
It was our world for a long time,
It was shattered for many reasons,
Things could've turned out differently,
But we didn't make the best decisions,
Many things didn't take place,
It only made us better people in the end.

Don't beat yourself up,
It's not your fault we both had a part to play,
Not everyone's love is forever,
Our season just came to an end,
The silver lining is we are better apart than together,
Better to be friends than to be enemies,
Why not have a piece of someone,
Rather not have them at all.

Stop holding on to what killed us,
Just let it all go and give to god,
What's gone is just gone,
Can't live in the past but can make a better future,
The past is mirror for our future.
GQ James Dec 2020
Don't be quick to make an enemy,
Why not make a friend,
The ones we envy and hate we can keep close,
The hate can be transferred to love,
We hold on too much anger,
We can just release the love.

Stop hating each other,
Let's love each other,
Stop and think what you're doing,
Once you calm down you'll realize it,
Take your EMOTIONS out of the equation,
EMOTIONS cloud your judgement.

Women hating other women over some man,
Why hate her on what he did to you,
Make her your ally rather your enemy,
Let's come together not collide against each other,
Not enough togetherness in the world,
Let's create togetherness,
Let's end the war that's going on.
GQ James Dec 2020
You can cut off my hands,
You can cut off my legs,
You can cut off my feet,
I'll still find a way to move around,
I was born in the war so I'm solid,
Military minded and heart of a solider,
Purple hearted but the blood I shed is pure.

No matter what you do to me,
I'll always come back stronger,
Came from a family of strong ones,
Nothing weak about me,
There's vultures in the sea,
Keep your eyes out for the sharks in the ocean.

The ones who seem to be cool,
Usually be the ones who ain't cool,
Play your friends close but keep your enemies closer,
Friends ain't always your friends.
Marco Dec 2020
Has the pain
not been enough
after I left you,
crawling on skinned hands and knees,
ribcage open,
heart bare, bleeding out,
exposing the shallow grave you dug
for yourself
to nestle and rest in
forever, for
as long as I breathe?
Just below the torn,
worn skin,
barely concealed and ever present,
never to be forgotten for you are,
alive in my head

Death carries
no meaning here,
where you
and I
on our battlefield of blood spilled
and souls lost,
minds lost,
bodies lost in the abyss of
man’s darkness and

The depth of hatred can
only be matched to
the depth of love,
two halves of the same,
in your blood and mine
we lie as one.

Never reach for me again.
