It's like we’re playing chess.
Moving strategically, testing boundaries,
all while watching each other’s expression.

We all know how this games ends…
The queen destroys you and steals your heart.

Beyond sacred geometry,
Hides a dark secret.

A secret of stolen symbols,
And stolen concepts.
My HP Poem #1939

we could have been friends
things could have been fine
who wants to be friends
with a thief called time?
who wants to be friends with a thief called time?

Nothing where hope used to be
Just empty boxes whose contains were taken
And in the corner muttering guards with hands over their heads
Babbling nonsense about the forsaken times that are coming
Their minds were lost, they don’t know what they were guarding
Pandora’s jar is no longer the saving grace
For centuries, while her siblings, plague and evil roamed around the world
She was sitting inside, waiting for her time, to heal, to change the tides of ancient war
But she was stolen to be sold
By wicked men in masks made of compassion
The merchants with their silvery tongues that shamelessly disguised their lies as the gospel of the Lord
Who pried on fear and behind closed doors stoked the fires of misery
For ballots and votes soaked in blood of those they pretended to shield
Without hope, we do not have a levelled playing field
Now we see, how expensive were the mistakes of the past
That eroded the scales of truth and the palace of unspoken trust

DEAR PENPAL PEOPLE, do you know what is more hurtful than missing a human???--missing a character from your dream--you can't even blame him in his face:\

met you last night in the gone

this will take a lot to be claimed to the bone

grinning crowns of versus been worn

to live to keep in those halls up torn

cold I keen shimmering in so dim so tight

a wholesome of neon light

elegant in blacks you trail you knight

a little too high

a little too low

way old for eyes to glow

sometimes loose sometimes harsh and stones

finally to me he saves approach

mesmerize and charm clasp arms and tease clarks

flying with you hell of a need a struck of a stark

know the way never minding no cry no pay

shoulder she presses

kisses she smolders

caressing bits n'pieces

a decay of something older no longer beholder

swoon her in brains

spread her in walls

in yellows and thunders always a smile

jarred well sworn to them all

swept to her feet

heart and soul

to your submit

I hate to admit

but things are lit

taste the rain

drown the pain

can't release your chain

in my sleep

your whispers seep

cut me so deep

from the pinkie touch

to the hold of the much

in the gazes unseen loud

in bet of middle of crowd

bring a right in your ignite of a strict detect

up taken so fished by your unbounding protect

get to you get to me

I struggle of these for you to be safe to see

foul me none not again

I fail dread in your essence

cant scribble cant write

things my heart wont come across a possible define

purple screams and black molds upon my wondrous

soul they dime and sore

not like others

heaven to you heaven to me

treat the lavishes then worship the envies

clot wounds gamble truths

just as nothing else I wont await no more

traced here

known where

forever in my heart

your place bewares

a necklace to the angels

to you took to you sold to you you win

take me forever

in the bordeaux I'm covered

already missing you

got me on clouds loving you

a happy end,
but he's the villain
a pleasant walk,
but he's the tremor
a gorgeous dream,
but he's the wake
if only they were meant for him.

maybe they were,
in another end
in another path
in another dream
in another life.
for now, he would lie dormant
in his headspace.

you can trust me
all kept under my lock and key
they can’t hurt you
not unless they take my entry
and steal what was ours to keep
i would never betray my own word
only if you abandon me
the depths of my own knowledge
are often so bittersweet
filled with the voices of a thousand murmurs,
sayings that are mine to keep
admit it once,
i’ll lock it away
never for anyone to peek
A wounded  heart
inflicked on bruised reed
All it knows is profound pain
It seeps into a seared conscience
It knows no value
It taints relationships
It stirs up a heavy heart
It self -seeking
Carries a weight of baggage
until it burns out the soul

Oh, can’t I get you out of my head?

Your eyes, those dazzling eyes

They locked my gaze

and made me stare

into the depths of pool

of your beauteous, almond eyes.

Or was it your smile?

Looking at those pink lips ,

reminded me of rose petals

pressed to mine.

It was definitely your touch,

Your gentle and sweet touch

to my cheek

as you drew me closer

to your lips.

But I shied away,

never let you get too close,

Is it why you left me?

I don’t see if I’ll ever get an answer ,

But what I felt is

You took my heart that day,

And I have no intention of having it back.

I go to sleep at
10 p.m
but lately it's more like
2 a.m.
because I don't want
to turn the lights off

I brush my teeth
every morning and night
but lately it doesn't matter
enough to me
because my breath will only again be soured
by bitter truths in the morning

I don't read or watch t.v.
before going to bed
but lately I've been
listening to children's stories
because they imitate the innocence
that was long ago stolen from me
