Inside each man resides a boy,
not readily seen on his face,
who longs for, again, that youthful joy
provided from a loving embrace.
A mother's kind words, forever kept,
A father's prideful grin.
Tears swept away after he's wept,
bandages applied on torn skin.
No different when he's grown up,
still seeks comfort from the storm...
and just like when he was a pup-
a gentle kiss to keep him warm.

*we, men, are all but boys, playing grown up for those who expect it from us.

Inspired by Gabriele
Both can ****
        The only difference is
                      Cigarettes shatter lungs
         She shatters everything

            I remembered the first moment
my lips pressed the filter
     as I lit it up breathed it all
                savored every smoke
       as if we covered up painful lies
        in a container of painkillers

The same way  
we used to pressed our lips
     sparked something between us
           savored every moment we had
    as if our love was a rose
               in a valley of tulips
Let your heart unleashed
let your mind released
let your tears flow
let them wash away your feelings
of destruction.
Let your soul free once again and
welcome the cooling breeze
of sunset's late glimmer.

Lead me to the dark blue ocean.

Push me down, help me sink.

It can’t get any darker.

I am ready, drowning is my will.
I wrote this a year ago when I was headed to the bottom again. I'm glad I don't identify myself in those lines anymore, at least most of the time.

baby i've tried but can't unlove you
You couldn't reveal,
you wouldn't say.
This Mask I wore,
It weighed me down.
You didn't care,
It wasn't fair.
I held my breath,
You didn't say.

and now, . . .

I watered down your poison.
You cannot hold me now.
My arms held out,

You'll run.
I know you'll run.
ok kid.

Such a shame.
Oh kid.
Warm, blurry, dancing,
The dust mites swing through the air,
My fingers curling his hair in small circles,
I close my eyes and drift into the abyss,
The gentle hum of radio
Playing a smooth sweet melody,
I stretch out like a cat sun bathing
This basking warm feeling in my chest
Spreads and flows through my veins
Driving, down, slowly
Caressing the  elegant  Keys through the window,
Soft, and warm like the grass we lay in as we gaze up at the dark curious sky.
The purple haze of the mountain painting  brilliant streams of sunlight on the cotton clouds,
You’re strong  comforting  arms Surround me like the ocean,
Silky and silent I watch as the luminous stars dim and glow in the  velvet blue sky,
I want to stay with you,
I want build and grow and climb with you,
But that’s for time to decide,
I close my eyes and slip into the sun
Warm, blurry, dancing

She loves me
He lusts for me
They need me
You long for me
But I am alone
