Friend

I have a friend

Hanging around with me

Loving me great and deep

We spent a lot of time together

Saying we'll stay the same forever

But a tragic truth

Of a reveling crooked

Was revealed like a joke

And confusing as its look

That the friend I always knew

Was illusion that I always view

Product of my imagination

Which turned me in confusions

—-

All things are lies

I can't see it with my eyes

Or was I just ignorant?

To pretend I didn't realize

But now that things are unmasked

Everything I spent with a friend

Had banished and so it ends

And that's what hurt most

'Cause there is no other cost

For the things that I have lost

With a friend I cherished the most

—-

And that which hurt....

She is a ghost

What am I?
I am broke,
I am glass in the water,
I am torn,
I am hated,
I am depressed,
I am scared of death,
But i need the reaper,
My cuts are claws,
Claws from the demons scratching to become free,
my eyes say pain,
my body says afraid,
my voice says stay away,
my heart is broken,
my mind says hell,
I have no help nor hope,
Please let me find someone who loves me,
my flaws and all,
and not be scared away,
I am a broken child,
My first kiss was a razor to my lips,
I am alone and broke,
I am "happy" me
This is me without a mask, this is what i see every day that no one thinks to ask about because i hide it so well. What i wouldn't do to be happy again.

(Early Mornings)


It is 4:10 AM
Here i am, facing you...
Haven't showered...haven't brushed...haven't gurgled
Too early to look...but, i could not resist seeing
This person with disheveled hair
Eyes are not too willing to open
Avoiding the uncertainty surfacing...slowly but surely
Making itself known, this morning so early...
An empty shell, is what i could see
A looming nonentity...

No coffee yet, but, the eyes already speak
You don't answer, your looks are so bleak
That is how you tell me i am  stubborn
But i've been this way since birth...so torn
You tell me, i am just in denial
In front of you, it is like, i am on trial
But, i am just a mortal
Maybe we are both tired
How can we ever go back to being inspired?
Maybe you'd rather shatter into pieces...like i would,
I'd carefully gather your shards...would you gather mine, if you could?

Now, later, tonight, tomorrow...we always face each other
There are days, when i look at you, you make me smile, i feel better!
But, most times, i hate the reflections, they make me glare
And i so despise the thoughts that ensue...i counter your stare
..... I close my eyes, with a plea,
A blink could not erase, the images that i see..

I have never wanted separation
And yet, Fate brought me here, in isolation
You're my silent pal...my silent witness
You say nothing when i become senseless
I leave you in the morning
I come home from work in the evening
And i find you still here... on this wall
Welcoming me home...where i just sit, or stall
Faint jazzy sounds comfort me
A few hours rest...late at night...i sleep...i am free
Then, again, the alarm ruins the stillness of the moment
Robs the dawn of its precious silence
And i rise...to drown anew in despondency...in self pity,
Or is this lunacy?
All i see is gray...and black
Be it dawn...or dusk.

If  ever i surrender
I'd be swamped with the stark truth, the reflections you offer
...this can't be a facade,
...in front of you, it's just too bad

I am

U n m a s k e d...

....I am weak, powerless...i crawl
Over and over, i struggle not to fall,
Over and over, i  look at you... but, just the same..i fall.
