i have felt
the rush of blood
pounding in my veins;

surrendered
to over-reaction,
cursing the same

I couldn't help it
But to smile
Every time i look at you
Or think of you
It *****
Because it's pretty obvious
That i like you
You could see it  in my eyes
And especially my smile
But you don't care
You don't care about my feelings
So I'll promise you
Sooner or later
I won't be smiling
When i see your face
I will look at you with a straight face
And show you
That you're no longer
The reason why i smile

un
i can't uneat what i just ate
i can't come early if i just came late
i can't unsee what i just saw
i can't be free if i broke the law

i can't come clean because i'm permanently *****
i can't love you because i'm just not flirty
i can't touch you, my hands aren't clean
but it can still come true if it wasn't a dream

how are you meant
to know what to do
with this one life
which you cannot undo
there is so much
to this thing called reality
getting everything right
seems far from practicality
i'm doing my best
like so many of us are
i just need direction
before i travel too far

It's killing me
To try not to think of you

It's killing me
To undo things i used to do with you

It's killing me
To try not to miss you
Did i **** you too?
Brian McDonagh May 2018
I turn the lights off, you turn them back on.
I close the refrigerator door, you open it back up.
I return items to their original places, you move them.
I leave the toilet seat up, you fold it back down.
I vacuum the carpets, you immediately imprint your feet where I stopped.
I lock the door, you unlock it.
I turn the TV off, you turn it back on.
I recycle the newspaper, you bring it back out.
I make dinner, you order takeout.
I unplug, you plug back in.
I sketch, you erase.
I say one thing, you argue against it.
Today, nothing happened.
Not saying I've been a part of all these instances, but this is just to exemplify
my encounters with those who have different ideas.

Tattoo your arm
Red of the stars
Honey is black
Put in a bag

Dawn of the stars
Never arrives
Harm to undo
to
Never decide

Open my arm
Blue of my scars
God is white
In his copyright

and
Sunshine abuse
of tracks to choose
To pierce my arm
But honey knows

My love
is
a wound
a scar
a shame
I must've chose

And though you stay by my side
You never arrive
Your heart glides above an awry
night
But soon it will be
time to decide

and the bridges may fall
bridges may burn
but just to overdose on you
I'd let Lucifer take all
a minor to e minor

No need to imagine
why bring in the pain
back in the equation

Lately,
With the touch of reality
it is better not to give into insanity
not to do something silly.

Imagining the perfect storyline
the lush delicate green curved vine
the pristine design
to a careful rewind


Opening my eyes again
to the outside rain
to my hand's chain
and many other limitations

When I go to sleep
I count those sheep
repeat them
and listen
to those faint heartbeats


They are the mirage
doing enough damage
with their pretty picture
concealing the real nature
the true vision
with coloured notions.

Imagine it never happened
but how would it undo the impact?
Adam Robinson Jan 2018
You pull the love out of me,
Like scientists harvest the silk of a spider,
Pinned down, days of freedom behind,
nailed to the bed arms outstretched,
How does it feel?
Nailed down there with precision?
Unmoving all strength gone,
Arachne's curse unbound onto me,
In me,
Out of me,
and in the walls,
You pull and you pull,
Weaving your own gossamer dream,
Of silken castles and fort walls,
Do you even want to feel?
No sirens for you to save.
Dancing with death at my traitorous embrace,
Dreams are so flammable,
and so is your heart,
The sparks of feeling,
Undo so much.
Last night somebody loved me --
and undid every word.
