sad story

Dramatic tunes

Dramatic tunes play in my mind

as I wait in bed for your replies

Took a trip, tried to listen to

A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships

But boy, I really should take note

that 1975 was never the year

that the internet was born 

then lives got weird


Dramatic tunes swirl in my mind

Nauseating and mesmerizing, all at once

I trace all the pieces I could find

to draw the image that may resemble you

and draft the letters I could think of

but never would I send to you


Dramatic tunes leech on my mind

Trying to design my last demise

The nothingness on their side,

churning violence all coincide


Dramatic tunes play in my mind 

As I wait for your replies 

The darkness would soon arrive

here and hear my last goodbye

The flock of crows are closing in

Floating just three feet above

But then I feel my eyes flinch

As the phone buzzed

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A poem about the anxiety you have when you're not sure someone's still interested of you or not anymore. 

Dud Firecracker

Now your time is up, so what will it be?

No one there to help you blow out all those candles,

All those bloated schemes and dreams 

Are destined to turn to ash,


You can watch as they burn

Into the sour cream icing,

Or face your fate,

Lie in the bed you made.


No heroine badge or red carpet,

You've muddled through,

Stored yourself away 

In a fiery frenzy of your making.


Alice bombed out big time,

And the rabbit hole was filled up

Piling the leaves and pieces of mulch

Onto your tea party stories.


Bold as can be, 

No tea for the tillerman

Because the tires have gone flat,

And the mad-hatter has lost his hat.


One thing is on your side...air,

There's always another fantasy to fabricate,

Because you're just smart like that

At building castles in the sky for yourself.


It's good busy work,

But it always comes 

Tumbling down onto you

In the end, doesn't it...


But I will have you for dinner one night,

And show you kindness,

In hopes of your renewed faith

And rejuvenated lovely style.

If You Knew


Time flies very fast

Something we can't grasp

We don't know what it brings

If or not we will sink


I am reaching my peak

You are with me all this time

Whether strong or weak

You stand by me every time


But now I am doubting

If ever you knew my darkest secret

The thing I've been hiding

Something about me I wish to forget


You got me thinking

If you ever uncovered this unspoken truth

If you ever noticed this thing I hid from you

Would you be doubting?


Would you still love me like you do?

Would you think I am condemned too?

Would you be mad at me for not telling the truth?

Would you be sad for me 'cause I hid it from you?


Believe me, I tried telling you

Trust me, it's been hard for me too

I beg you, please try to hear me

Save me, from this lie I live in


I tried a million times

To chain my heart and mind

Cried in those troubled nights

God's words don't seem to rhyme

If It Was Me


Saw you from afar

Knew you're about to cry

You're all I desire

You got me asking why


Why am I not the reason for your tears?

What should I do to make you see?

Am I not the one who can make you cheer?

How can I make you see these things?


Here you are again 

In the middle of the night

Here I am again 

Giving you a shed of light


Why are you very blind?

Can't you read between the lines?

Why don't you look and find?

Can't you see my heart's desire?


If it was me you're with,

You will not be crying

It will not be tragic

We will end up smiling


I know your favorite song

It has been you all along

Wake up and look inside my soul

See through my heart and you will know

He met her in a lonely town

Sparks flew that point of time

Bouncing back and forth to the ground

He told himself, "She's mine"


He could make people fall in love with his words

He could make people cry with his lines

He could make people see the truth though it hurts

He could make people mad side by side


He thought he could make Juliet

Fall in love with him

But the princess' mind was set

Her heart's not for him


She left him in the  dark

With a strong, burning scar

He thought he could stop his heart

He should've been warned it's hard


He doesn't know what to do

He feels what he's got is useless

He can't use it for the princess

He prays she will want him too


Years had passed him by too swiftly,

He helped thousands to fall in love

But he can't make the girl he loves,

This is the cost of being him


All the why's in the world haunt him

He's jealous of the passers-by full of happiness

He gave it to them but he can't have his happiness

Memories of him with her kills
