Things aren’t always simple

I told him I could live without the stars inside my eyes Without him here beside me I would survive the rise of the tide   He warned me he’d be enveloped By the thrashing of the sea That losing me Would be the end of all light to be seen   I could see…

November 9th

I left my love in California Behind his chain link fence & sad, sad eyes I promised I’d be back But you can’t fool those who can’t be surprised   I knew I’d have to leave my love in California So I crawled between doors in  a dark house at night Hopped the first bus…

November 2nd

You say you love me, like I’m a temple and you believe Like an oasis in the desert Like the words I speak are holy, & I speak in novels  with my tongue   You look at me with diamonds in your eyes  & a magnet in your heart   Reaching & stretching with your…

Following you down

Getting lost in the ghost in your eye That white specter surrounded by darkness Turning away shyly or sadly perhaps Following in, down the tunnel To somewhere closer to your heart   (October 31rst 2016)

Why did you dive off the cliff

I wish I knew what you think when you look at me with your star-filled eyes Paralyzed By some mysterious ghost of a shadow within me I can’t see What you think you detect in my personality   Standing there or running over Tackling me with excitement I wish I could read the thoughts that…

Feathers caressing my neck

I wish I knew what I was feeling instead of sinking in oceans of blue and ribbons of indigo Reaching feathers caressing my neck I’m afraid To touch you To break you To feel your arms around me like glass Too easily shattered I’m afraid To taste the redness of passion on your lips And…

Until all I can feel is you

But then somehow, When I see you, That all changes   Don’t get ahead of yourself I’m far from being head over heels What I mean is   You’re an ocean When I only asked for a drop You’re a cliff When all I asked for was a step You’re the sun When I only…

July 19th 

You know that feeling? Caged-in, unable to move your own limbs, Convinced that since you’re powerless, Nothing’ll ever break you free No friendship, no hope The tiniest inkling of faith has left And there you stand, on your own two feet Faced with the oncoming wave that looms over you, Threatening to crush you, rushing,…

Dark halls

You venture down the darkest halls within me The ones with vines reaching down the walls for comfort Moss cowering in the corners Mold racing itself down to the exit * You make a home within the hallways no one ever travels The loneliest paths my mind possesses The ones even I have long forgotten…

(1:41)

Between billions of rattling, empty and haunting bodies, I squeezed myself * And somehow, on this crowded earth, I managed to bump into you * (01:41) May 2016

Inhale (00:42)

Perhaps I inhaled you, Long ago Which would explain how you’re stitched onto my skin as if it had always been your own * And why, when I rummage through the dark corners of my mind And unveil within me my deepest secrets You are somehow always there * Perhaps I lost you down some…

May 12th (09:30)

I’m thinking it’s  a maybe And that’s what worries me You’ve fallen so far, at least that’s what it seems While I’m just sitting here caught in between You being a lover and the best of friends * You see, my mind doesn’t evaporate when you cross my line of sight And Your touch doesn’t…
