.and if you evermanage to get inside myhead, i'll wish you luck
.spillyour emotion,or drownin it
.you're afraidto let anyonestoke the firein your chestfor fearyou will burnthem alive
.some thoughts get so loud thatyou cry out for them to leave;they scatter like birds startledout of their trees, before landingagain where they wereand after a while,you just have tolet them sing
.and like a stone atthe bottom of the riveror the sea,i think life might just beflowing right past me
.you’ve gota lioninside,a heartfull ofpride,and you’renot lettinghim roar
.one day the earth will dim;the light in the sun will flicker and die,and the moon will sigh and roll over,keeping her back to the worldour shadows will say farewellto our bodies, and go their ownway in the darkness
.i shudderwhen you speak;your words arecold when theytouch me
.you brokea heart,convincedthat there wassomething goodinside
.got eyes sohungry they'reswallowing youwhole,gonna spitout your heartlike a pip
.you were life's newwork of art;small easel bonesand a blankcanvas of skinbut he ruined you over time,added the brushof a scaror two
.i dug up thepast again, thosememories viciousand snarlingi set them looseinside the houseand now we haveto leave
.if thesewalls couldtalkthen i'm surethey'd bescreamingget out,burn usdown,we can'tbearto hold youanylonger(been too busy dreaming to get any sleep)
.he stood on the shore,and told the sea he loved her;the jealous wind tore hisvoice in two
.everything i hold deari hold too tightly;i am so sorry you weremarked when i had tolet you go
.i’ll spendmy wholelife playingdead sothat itleaves mewell alone
.you pulledall the strings;now i connect morewith the puppet thani do the puppeteer
.your heartalone shouldremind younot to beatyourself upyour pulseshould remindyoukeep steady
-she knew he was a grave, but she buried herself in him anyway.
lost my voice.I wrote "I love you"in the sand at the beach.The tide swallowed the wordsand drowned thembefore I could speak.
To See You AgainI’d swallow bleach just to see you again.I’d drown in blood and choke on death,I’d release my dying breathAll to see you again.I’d swing from a rope to see you again.I’d let go and join the black sky,I’d scream, scream until I dieAll to see you again.I’d down a storm of pills to see you again.I’d rewire my veins and run lights,I’d pick unwinnable fightsAll to see you again.I’d embrace red flames to see you again.I’d play in roads and with knives too,I’d kiss guns like I kissed you;I’d have to,To see you again.
How to love a poet: Expect them to be flawed, a field of wild flowered- imperfections, sticky metaphors & an inability to speak. Love them anyway. Know that when they look at you they are noticing the little things.
[Redacted]The sword is mightyThe pen mightier still.Though blades can injureWords can kill.
Sticks and StonesThey say words can never hurt you.Silence does a better job.
( 4/02/2014 )It’s day two& I already feelshriveled, lungless,overworked.I’ve been livingout of my suitcasesince I got home,sleepingon the couch &leaving my laundryon the floor.Everything in my refrigeratorscreams 12 days too late& rent money is due.She’s slapping mein the face,you see.Depression,that heartless bitchwith the longspider legs& hot mouth-she enjoysthrowing meinto furniture-up againstthin walls& having her way with me.
Could I Send You The StarsCan I send you the stars?A million twinkling letttersWaiting above your head each night to be readIn gentle melody like midnight lullabiesFor the girl I dearly wish could hear them.Can I borrow your moon?I know without it your nights may feel emptyBut I envy its lovely radiance shiningUpon those two eyesI wish I could see wish I could gaze intoSo instead could I borrow your Moon?And gaze into it hoping I'll find the lovelinessOf your eyes there instead.Could I steal your Sun?And pocket it's millionsAnd millions of memoriesOf lightly caressing you with its raysKnowing the feel of every beautifully delicatePart of you for every day of every year..Could I lease your dreams?And reside there with youUnderneath our stars' gentle lullabiesAnd beneath the Moon's loving gazeAway from the Sun's prying raysWith you...Since you're all I really need.So could I send you the starsAnd hope they'll send my love too?
Wanna Trade?Hey wanna trade?I'll give you my heartFor your smileThey're both so pure So beautifulI think its a fair trade.Hey wanna trade?I'll give my virginityFor your wordsBoth feel so sweetBoth make us happyI thinks its a fair trade.Hey wanna trade?I'll give you my trustFor your liesBoth feel so trueBoth feel so realI thinks its a fair trade.Hey wanna trade?I'll give you my tearsFor your devotionBoth feel so heavy Both feel so unwantedBy each of usI think its a fair trade.Hey wanna tradeI'll give you everythingFor your heartYou already have twoMine and yours.Please?I think its a fair trade.
