When she does see him walk so near, those eyes then glaze. The mind, abnormal for her to sway, each time protect by entry of none, will lie and gapes to him like church on dawn of Sundays. Her frame, unaware of demand to stay upright, then... (more »)

She hides, disguised, behind desire’s silhouette, so lost within her passion’s seeping reds, between ambitious lines, not fully set and daylight streaking of emotional treads. New shades replace the old as time goes by,... (more »)

Death is a heavy burden on your chest. Your grandpa is gone, but his soul remains. He always wishes you the very best. Where your grandpa rests he flies like a plane. He left love behind when he flew away. Do not grieve for him, for... (more »)

A dim lit cave houses the darkest of thoughts A plethora of sex, greed, and wonder Ticking time bombs and sentimental clocks Abnormal projections, the mind sundered Perplexed as to how the Halfeti grows With a taboo mind is what you... (more »)

Arrived in hidden satire: lost in thought sauntered the sibylline corridors with dots of mud and grass, to which I passed the floors traced by students amassed in a package crew. Indulged in flavor, I succumbed to the view of my new... (more »)

And the explorer asks, “Eyes? Why should he have eyes?” The submarine radiates silver. “Merely to see phosphorescence?” In reprise, Like gum in your mouth, like jumping rope on the playground, silver –... (more »)
Name Calling

Years and years of friendship means nothing to you Our problems you weren’t willing to fight through. I guess you moved on, and I’ll just stay here Deep down you know that I won’t disappear I call you best friend, you call me... (more »)
Degrees of Love

Blood-shot corridors. Venomous aura This is sickening like a cholera Watch out! He is back. A trap in disguise Tripping in a pitch black pit. You're helpless This is thy feeling that I much despise Wondering why? For I am so loveless... (more »)
A Facade
Custom User Avatar
All I see is a facade, a mask lies A cheating smile, plastic frame of mind The thought of who I am, scattered like flies A mixture of hundreds of people combined I’m lost, I don't know myself anymore For I have been hiding for far too... (more »)

Two bits of string, like a braid, intertwined, Their ends converged, their pathways turned one— One single state the future ever finds, When the ice, the frost, the rain have long gone. Now, the white string, with neither start nor end,... (more »)

Since I Hear Your Voice

A soothing stroke from a lock of cool hair, Bearing your smooth, silken scent with finesse, It traces my features—I do not dare, I dare not wake, lest I break this caress. Your sonorous voice, out in the distance, It lands on my... (more »)
Fire on my skin

Fire fire you burn so bright like a star in the dark. You will never go out. Your flame is so so bright. You brun to the touch. It hurts so much. So warm to my skin. My skin burning off it hurts but I can't stop. Can't get close or... (more »)
