Release Me


I have wasted

My time

My energy

My breath on you


I have gotten



Loneliness from you


You have fooled me

Put a veil over my eyes

Tricked me

Into loving you


You have taken, everything

My heart

My body

My mind from me



I love you 

I crave you

I yearn for you


Where is there reason,

When love is involved?

Where is reality,

When emotions run wild?


I would ask

But there is no answer

You leave me in silence

To stand on my own

I long to crumble

Fall into pieces

Cry to the heavens

Cry out to you


Never will you be

Mine own heart

Mine own soul

Or any part

Of mine own being


So… let me go

Set me free

Open your palms

And release me

To My Wife

I would say I miss you

But you no longer care

You left long before your body

And left me alone with yourself


I'm always thinking of you

Everyone says you aren't worth it

Maybe they're right...

But I thought you were


I wish we could be “us” again

But do I truly miss you

Or simply the relationship we had?

I guess I'll never know


You've kept me at a distance

So far I'd never reach you

Now I suppose I've finally decided

To stop trying

I went

I woke up today, and I put on my clothes and brushed my teeth 

I went to school, and they were waiting there for me 

I went to the bathroom, to get away from their killing knives and daggers of deception 

I went to my next class, and they tortured me while the teacher just laughed 

I went to lunch today, and they made me feel unwanted and I was feeling quite brash 

I went to the corner, and ate as if it were an art to eat uncomfortably alone 

I went, well, I went away and continued through this rutted blur that I'm trapped in 

It's the end of the day, and I finally force a smile because I get to go home 

I went home, and dad left, again, mom said he's not coming back 

I went to my room, I cried and closed my eyes, hopefully for good 

I went to sleep, my stomach was empty and my dread was full, I hope that I don't wake up

Middle School


You wonder why you're alone, even when you push people away 

You ask the question of "why don't you love me", then you scream and cry "stay away!" 

All you ask is that somebody holds you and never gives up on you, you've never said that, but it's not that easy 

You stand alone wondering why you're alone, being isolated alone with your lonely thoughts, utterly alone 

Being alone you yearn for a lone friend who was alone like you, and you want to be alone, together 

Being alone with a lone friend brings feelings of love or forlorn, 

You go everywhere together, promising that you'll be their best man, and that you'll never part from each other's side 

You plan college and future, you plan and plan and plan together, getting more and more excited as you grow together, groaning and moaning through the struggles and allowing yourself to be seen prone with them 

And you see each other all the time and you get, well, you get that feeling where you trust them, believing that they'll never hurt you, you open yourself up and develop together as people. 

Attached, that was the word. When you, when you love someone you get attached to them, you give them the gun fully loaded and let them aim it at your heart because you don't want to hold on to that weighty weapon which held you down, and they said that they'd love to carry some of your burden for you 

And you forget that they took that from you, and you go on getting happier and happier, learning to love again, leaping and feeling light without a lingering worry leaving you heavy since that burden left you 

They call you their brother and best friend, that their life could never be this grand, you become their advisor and shoulder to cry on and for you too, and life is great, and you're happy, and you can finally smile, saying truthfully that "somebody loves me" 

Then you say something, and they shoot you, and you realize that friend ends with end. You said something that you would never mean but you weren’t thinking and you curse yourself every day because you're just a freak, a monster that holds only malice with many wounds that aren't mendable, you blame yourself even though they're the one that shot you 

And you can't function and you miss them and then you wish that you never met them, but it will always hurt, and it still hurts, and if I had one thing left that I had to say it's I love you, and I'm sorry, I'm so sorry that I hurt you the way that they hurt me.

When you finally get that friend, things are never the same

When you lose a friend

When you lose a friend, your heart aches terribly 

When you lose a friend, time stops moving continuously 

When you lose a friend, you have to act like strangers 

When you lose a friend, eye contact becomes a danger. 


I lost a friend today, and my heart is broken into pieces 

I lost a friend today, and the pain is still crippling 

I lost a friend today, and now I'm completely alone 

I lost a friend today, and I'm lost with absolutely no direction 


I lost a friend a month ago, and the pain hasn't stopped 

I lost a friend a month ago, and he moved on leaving me alone 

I lost a friend a month ago, and I'm crying, still not believing that it's real 

I lost a friend a month ago, and I feel like I'm dying 


I lost who I am, since you left 

I lost who I am, and I don't want to go back 

I lost who I am, because you stabbed me in the back 

I'm lost, thank you

Tell Me a Story

Tell me a story

I've never heard before

Of faraway lands

And long-distant shores

Of knights and their honor

Of sweet maidens fair

Exercise your eloquence

To transport me there


Tell me a story

Of love won and lost

Of heroes unwavering

No matter the cost

Sing me a lullaby

Of joy and regret

And maybe, just maybe

I'll learn to forget

White paper flower

A White paper flower for your paper crane

one drawn from the ground the other raised to the sky

Brighter than the snow 

Liighter than the air 

Hope floats 

As hope grows 

Message from beyond 

The crane and the flower still exist 

In memory and thought 

But most of all ieternally in spirit.

Pictures in the windows 

A nod from the stars 

Paper flowers smile up

At paper cranes

Let Me In


I’ve got


like I’ve got


too many

to count

that I won’t

ever know


I don’t


for just


when I don’t

think it

could be




but I ended

up breathing

on a breeze

while you

passed through

the current

at lightspeed


I don’t

run down

just any


looking for

just any


or crack

I could




I could

have fallen

in love with


if you had

just left

that door

Love Never Goes Away

I think about you every day,

these memories never seem

to go away,


I know its you who I love the most,


I'm going to have to live with these

feelings for the rest of my life


Always worrying about what happened

to you; if I caused you to suffer.


Wondering if you ever think about me in

the way I think about you


I hope you live a good life,

I wish I could tell you that I love you

but I'll never get to see you again anyways


I wrote this poem, only for you and no one else,

because your the only one that I love deep down


I've had dreams about you that we meet again,

when I see people that look like you, I immediately think of you,

it causes me much pain.


These feelings are never going away,

always in my heart will you remain


Life is not fair

and often denies you what you want most


You are always reminded of your failures

you can never escape your past


Love will imprison you for life,

but I would not have it any other way.









Author's Notes/Comments: 

The one who I really love. My true love. I don't usually write often about this subject, because I keep it deep within. Its hard to talk about.
