A Perfect Pair, A perfect fate

I'm being dragged bare against the road with no set destination

I didn't know love would feel like a morbid amputation

Running through my mind and yet no set estimation

Looking for salvation, but forever ending with sensation


I held my world up like you lit up the sky, you were my sun

To make me feel alive for once? You were the only one

Now the sun sets again, but the fright has just begun

I wait the day you rise again, I can't think it's said and done


One day, I know, you will not come back

For good, they say, I'd think I'd have a heart attack

With you I feel alive, but without the visions pitch black

You make me who I am, but you make me what I lack


But they say I think I feel isn't true

But when I saw you, I knew

You held me up like glue

and I knew right there,  that I couldn't live without you


I'll give you all the time you need and wait

To years to decades, for me its never too late

Even if I'm old, and almost by life's gate

To die together is my wish, to be a perfect fate


And so I love you with my being, and all my heart

Despite any other who can set us apart

I know from the end, and to the start

For this love is more than that, a beautiful beautiful art.

I cannot make you love me as you love her


I see you with her. Smiling and giving kisses on the nose.

I knew it could never be. But life is blind hope.

After all these years I've realized my heart is futile and my woes, plentiful.

And all I've ever known were inadequate adventures.

But after all these years, I still can't accept that I cannot make you love me as you love her.

All This Time


You made my heart bleed again

You made my tears drop again

You killed my innocence

You burned my fantasies


I thought this one was the one

Didn't even last a month

It was no better than the first time

You kept me hoping from time to time


I asked you again tonight

I thought they were rays of light

But they only clouded my sky

Made it rain until my hopes died


Still, I trusted you wholly

Still, you kept my head rolling

They cut me like a paper

And now you got me wonder


Didn't I ask you enough?

Did you just stand there and laugh?

Tell me, what did I do?

Tell me, what should I do?


All this time I was pretending

All my time was gone and wasted

All this time I was believing

All my time was appreciated


All this time, I've been fooling myself

All this time, I've forgotten myself

My happiness and dreams

Turned loneliness and sins


This time, I will take some time

Sometimes, we have to ask why

This time, I will find my sky

Sometimes, we need our own time


Maybe after this, I'll find the real me

And find my true happiness

Maybe after this, I won't be naïve

And not go back to this mess

The Hour We Knew

The broken pieces remain scattered across the floor,
Collecting dust and dirt as time drags on by.
We walk barefoot amongst the remains,
Staring each other down as though we are each other's prey,

Fear formed from when we once slept as one.
Sharing dreams and make-believes,
Dirty sheets are where the passion's gone.
Doubtful intentions on a pleading promise,
Replacement organ where you bleed and have none.

I tread cautiously into retreating,
Setting myself up:
Dead aim, on target.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

That moment. All it takes is a few words to destroy a man.


Heartbreak :(

My heart
So brittle it breaks
Oh dear has it been staked!

My heart it cries it coos
Pumps out emotional goo

My heart it mourns it sigh
But none can see its plight

My heart it cries for you
To feel the same way too

When will this heartache mend
When will this torture end!

My heart so heavy ,grows numb
In despair it succumbs...

she talks about passwords
she loves to discuss dog turds
how she gets all perturbed
with how she used words
honestly she could care less
her close relationships are a mess
lies with no distress

claims to be a healer
master bullshit dealer
sits high upon her pillar
sold her dad for a dollar
on her mom puts a collar
the truth is never hollered
she knows she is a coward

hurting men is her game
she knows who to blame
to her it's all the same
could be next on her list
or a just a finger on her fist
words and mind she will twist
happiness will be missed

"I'll take that and that too."
like it's all that she can do
I am the latest prisoner
so I better listen to her
do what I am told
or I will be scold
but I am too old
how much longer can I hold?

she chases down
and finds the clown
and makes him frown
her mind is broken
a crack token
don't buy what she's smokin
she's knows and is lookin
for her next victim
to blame
for the pain

When Roses Grow Thorns

Above the rest you grow
beautiful you must know

mature and compose
as time goes some doze
but never does my nose
my sweet smelling rose

i promised to be gentle

i stuck to my decree
as thorns grew through thee
thorns sticking onto me
i came to see it was not me....

but of cold and sleet
simply had you beat

Author's Notes/Comments: 

my first and favorite poem. written in a sloppy iambic pentameter . I wrote this one about a girl who turned on me.

I Can't

Soul mates

What's the point? whats the use?
I can't handle not being your muse.
I look for meaning in your dark eyes,
I can't keep lying, myself I so realize.
I mask the dissapointment oh so well,
I can't believe that you just can't tell;
When you're the one who knew we fell?
If we were really all we could possibly be;
I can't believe you can't still feel it in me,
I see the honey melting in your gentle look -
I can't know the pieces of your heart I took
I left you in a hazy doubt by word, by needs
I could not go there, not by word or by deeds...
The rapturous torture, on my pain will ever feed,
On loves one and only pledge and this undying creed,
I can't let go of all that nearly was, we were effortless,
So close. A trick, a trace and we all lose face,
Hope, hope till nothing's left,
Barr unending grace...

Haunted by the one you must lose all in this life to gain and lose in the one to come. happy to hear what you think :)


When Anger Occurs

Felt like I was floating,
But really I was falling.
So wrapped up in your lies,
I didn't hear the truth calling.
To tell me you're the devil himself,
You keep you're heart a shelf.
Somewhere deep inside the whole you crawled out of.
I thought you were sent from above,
You said I was sent from above,
And I believed you,
Shows what I know about love.
Blinded by false light,
You took away my sight,
All I did was feel the wrong that I thought was right.
I should've known better than this,
Cupid totally missed;
Or maybe went right through you because you're so heartless.
You're so heartless.
You get what you wanted by taking it away from someone else.
I'm sick of you're taunting.
Its ruthless and haunting.
What happened to your heart?
Should've seen this from the start:
You are heartless.

You know I loved you so,
I never wanted to let you go.
You said forever and always,
Then lost track of the days.
Forever always ends up being trouble for me,
How much you affected my life,
Then took off in flight.
You never had a thought of what you left behind.
My mind filled with worry,
My eyes filled with tears.
I'm surprised I haven't drown from the crying,
That's lasted for years.
I hope maybe one day you'll learn a lesson
From playing with peoples' hearts,
Then ripping their life away.
People try to heal me,
Like they know what I'm feeling.
All the trust I've lost,
All the hate I've gained.
Its so unreal;
My body aches with hurt,
My blood pumps through pain.
Then I see you smiling like its some kind of game!
What a shame,
Well game over and all people rule the same
Because they're all so heartless.
No one will confess,
They do what they want,
Then push it away.
I'm sick of the lying,
The hate and the fighting.
What's wrong with this world?
Filled with all this hurt,
But you're still heartless.

I'm losing controll,
I'm about to let go:

Because you're so heartless.
You're sick and dishonest.
Take without asking first,
Then push it in the dirt.
I'm losing my gripping,
I think I am slipping.
You took what was best,
Then left all the rest,
Now I'm heartless.

I wrote this for people with broken hearts. Mainly me.
