We sat there

a divide between us

I didn’t know what to say
how to say it
or when to say it

so instead

I said nothing

They asked, "why are you as silent as a stone?"
She replied, "why should I be voluble as the Mynah? My heart and tongue are deprived of goodness just like a desert, deprived of a sea.
Another voice said, "Ergo, redundant talk comes with unbearable guilt."
They asked again, " if so, why do you not speak the despairs you hide?"
She replied, " Because, the gift of patience usually reigns.
The Gift of Patience is indeed a very beautiful gift...

People can fall
Buildings are tall
Can I be above it all?
Can I see the horizon?
See the sun leave for the night?
Oxygen is scare
I breathe in a pace
4 second rotations
Please lead the way

One tries to be good
One tries to be strong
One tries to feel good
Can one get any wrong

Not always consistent
Had been dishonest
Sometimes I blank
behind the actions of feelings
I have my reactions

I'm still where I am

You wait and I wait the same
You know I want to change
And I'm making my way
I'm sorry I said "you know"
I didn't mean that
And I know you hate sorries
It won't be just that
I don't want a fight
I want us to talk
till we go to bed together
Please don't end the call

DEAR PENPAL PEOPLE, let them talk---not even hearing;->

as if they talk

like to a fault they swirl to get a may

as if they walk the walk

like its not in me for this day

All the words I want to say
Balled up, I throw away
Because at the end of the day
It doesn't matter anyway
What will it change if I were to say
The things in my chest, boiling away
Coiled up, as if it were to say
I am going to explode any day

"I am happy because it is all I can be,"

The just becauses' twisting around your tongue as another statistic sticks in your teeth,

"I'm not alone."

Are words coated in the sweetness of pretense, the inevitably suicidal thoughts of a generation give you solace,

"I'm feeling good today"

Words you use to describe the fact you can't play your favorite video game any more, without the guilt of not know if you'll ever go back.

"I'm tired"

And for once the honesty comes out like a sewage leak; there is a harmony of agreeability in your statement, the words both acknowledged and ignored.


To toss and toil you lay your bones and finally close your eyes, thoughts wildly awake but silence envelopes you.

I just had a talk with death’s closest cousin;
He didn’t speak, but he was kind.
