avalon
a different sort of nerves
run up and down my spine
this is new, this is taking
breath and spitting out
a lie, chewing on the
tacky bits of life yet
still forgetting you
will die;
because death falls
through the walls
and takes us even
if we cry,
if we lie;
death is deaf to
tacky pleas and
pulls our breath out of
the lungs
beneath our spines.

Oh darling of mine

You make promises
you know you can't keep
and don't even realize that
promises aren't to be kept
they are to be fulfilled

Promises aren't to be kept
under your pillow or
under the warm sun's light
they aren't words mumbled
they are taken actions


You'd promise to never
betray nor leave me
when the clouds would roar
of troubles we faced
but I fought the clouds alone

You'd "step out" of my life
telling me to lose all hope
to ever have your love
telling me to die and ease
this world of agony

You'd "step out" of my life
and maybe you wouldn't walk into
someone else's life but didn't you
then walk with someone else to see
how a life without me was all about

Oh darling of mine

You make words seem
like kisses on the beach
when they'd all be thorns
growing out of your skin
not realizing that

Words don't need to soothe
they don't have to comfort
a dead soul in distress
words are supposed to rip a heart out
and stop it from beating lies


You'd talk about never
forging words nor corrupting
truths with lies that were made
ruthlessly of despise
and i saw that in your eyes

You'd say that
"I lied cuz..."
so baby don't you dare
lie over a lie and tell me
stories of how you'd never lie

You'd be writing writes
about the one with green eyes
telling me its all but fiction
with no one in your mind
surely that night i must've been blind

oh darling of mine*

you're hell's fire
that burns my heart
with hurt and desire

you've been a liar
for a time I did not inquire

now toss me once again and burn me alive in hell's fire
I am sorry for ever believing you
oh and
between me and you
loyalty is something, I'd rather show

If you're a good writer
I've probably already fallen
in love with your words
if you make good music
you most likely own
a part of my soul
undoubtedly
if when you message me
you use proper grammer
punctuation
and complete sentences
there's no denying
I take you seriously
something in the way you word things
the way that each consonant sings
as I breathe in the simple things
you say to me

*** stick #1 says positive
#2 from the dollar stores says negative
but #3 from the grocery said positive
and #4 from the general was inconclusive
the #5 from ER was intrusive
#6 from the gas station didn't work
#7 from the immediate care center hurt
so the clinic tells me they don't know for sure
and ultrasounds aren't yet insured
I guess I can wait
If it isn't too late
I feel my belly
guess I'll see when I show
But here comes the blood
it just never will grow

Now, that you're gone,
And left me in dew,
I wish there were things,
You better knew...

The peace
The silence
Will always be due,
The peace,
The silence
That were then so true.

Your talks, my laughs
Your persevering view,
Made me smile,
With nods for you
Like it was just, just you!

The fights, the frown,
Were then still still cute,
Maybe because,
It was with you!

You left, Not asked,
With a lame excuse,
An excuse ,I know
That was just so not true.

I wish you stayed,
could perceive the truth,
That there was somebody,
Who loved, loved you.

There's still a voice,
That connects me with you,
That makes me smile, shed tears for you
and often makes me miss you,

But now you're gone,
I don't have you,
I wish my love,
You could see the truth.

But then it's late,
To be in the dew,
And I hope,
That was all
...Only If you knew.
Thankyou for reading, and reacting.
All your comments and feedbacks are most welcome.

I’m not what you want, and we’re trying to force it, I understand that's what it is, I saw your face, blank, motionless, my words make sense and you know it, there's nothing we can do, your love is not true, it’s a disguise to satisfy an empty part of your mind, and you don't deserve me, and all I’m capable of giving you, you're literally the reason mother ******* cant fall in love, is it my fault, am I stupid, was I trying too hard, but’m not desperate, my love was generous and you felt it, you just didn’t respect it and now its gone forever, you severed your chances, I hope youre happy, you’ve made me too happy, and now im too sad, you’ve destroyed my heart, but I gave it to you to protect, guess I was expecting too much, I though I could trust you, you told me so, your love was a rapid river, I was caught in the current, bones shattered, lungs collapsed, I’m bleeding now, I told you it was intense, I was about to tell you how much I loved you, my eyes practically said it, my encounter with you I dont regret it, its taught me more, but no more, I'm done learning, its time to take action, you're a good distraction, Im not giving you the satisfaction of being admired, my heart is tired, of being deceived, Im not what you needed, but what you wanted to play with, such a shame how our perception can be blinding, because I’m trying to undertstand what caused me to miss it, was it the long distance, the days without your love, I don’t need any more lies in my life, I’m maxed out, your time is done, you have won this time love, but im only getting better, I will overcome you, you seem the greatest prize to be won, I think we will go our whole lives searching for you, in need of it, and its out there, somewhere into the future, whenever it wants to align, its gotta be the right time, the formula has to be just right, otherwise failure, like a scientist in the lab, nothing great in life comes easy, we must work for the success we want, we must fall down repeatedly until we learn exactly how to walk, and I guess we must respect that grittiness about life, the bumps and bruises, even the scars and tragedies, the whole spectrum of experience, so allow yourself to laugh, to be merry when the time is right, allow yourself to experience pain, and embrace it all with loving arms, you will not be free until you die, we are prisoners for about a hundred years, do your time, be kind, love forever.
