    It is the macabre talons that grip onto our shoulders Weighing us down with a misery ever so heavy It is the rain soaked earth that beckons us home As it pulls our ankles further Into a quicksand of hopelessness It is the clouded skies forbidding us of light As we are drowned in the damp and ...

    A concrete block beckons me To sit, to rest. To watch: The thunderheads form in the distance White lumps of mashed potatoes Strewn throughout the sky They never grow nearer Wisps of wind come in like waves Hauling hints of spring time warmth The sun never shining, yet illuminating The w...

    Enticing. Your beauty as it flows in the water Each movement precise Each appendage moving in sync Captured. As I carelessly am wedged in a web A web of translucent bars and lattice work Forbidding me to swim free Paralyzed. Your network of wires are electrocuting How am I to escape m...

    Through the eyes of the deceiver There are pains which can't be told There's a cold which always lingers And there are lies you cannot hold Through the eyes of the deceiver There's a blank stare from a wall With no feelings and no emotions That is given to one and all Like the...

    There are stars a many and dandelions a plenty But none of them would grant me you No, not a weird hour of night, or a meteor’s flight Could bring your heart closer to mine No candle need be blown or small seeds to be thrown For me to long for you in my dreams For my lonesome plead in fact d...

    I lay awake unaware and still While outside the night sky trembles A long awaited storm has come Both to nature and my emotions The rumbling outside matches the unknowing rumbling pounding within my heart The uncertainty of this "relationship" flashes like the fla...

    Gentle beats and cymbals I hear the words you sing out to me Absorb into my ear drums Integrative, imaginative I convulse my feet to move to the rhythm Shift ankles and legs I move my head to your artistic words With just a simple ease Reassuring, resurrecting I let my vocal chords m...

    Waves take you from me As if you are a raft, floating freely by the shore. I shall look for you, Waiting for your return when the tide comes back in. And perhaps brings you along on its evening journey. I shall wait, watching the sun as it sets and the sands turn cool, as the children re...

    Tonight begins an open mind, a vivid imagination, an apathetic view on what the world thinks something SHOULD be. It's time for risks, a time for art, a time to splatter the paint on the canvas and refuse to fix its placement. It's a time to throw our hearts out the window an...

    There’s a faint kind of ticking within my heart And it’s been just ticking from the start I don’t know what it is and why it’s there But I know one thing’s sure, it sure ain’t fair There’s a steampunk heart beating in my chest And it’s absolutely nothing like the rest These m...

    You scream into microphones And I scream words on paper You're a hardworking factory boy And I'm a pharmacy student You're strong and tough And I'm moderate and soft You like hardcore music And I like my alternative punk And yet through it all, Through all the opposites,...

    Things were always easier When we were just high schoolers The drama was which guy was cuter And what outfit should we wear that day And what to get for lunch Things were always easier When you just sat in classes all day Write down notes and raise your hand And then reply to text messages ...

    If there is avail to the doves, The hopes are not cellars Our time is not ash. No river, for we go to the mountaintop Carrying flowers from our grand days Holding our thick teardrops And vanishing fears We are not dead We still have the strength to move on Of happiness We create our feat...

    Look into the distance, what do you see? I find fields of grasses swaying with me A fence that tells a strong history An old oak tree of mystery Hills and plains so far away Many adventures for another day Look down to the cattle ground Look how they eat making not a sound Gleam to the sky ...

    Pulsating cold Rippling through my veins Turning my insides black Shifting my world upside down Swirling vision F*cking with my perception I can't touch the wall The ground falls out below Tornado winds Hitting my face like ice I feel them turn to concrete As I hit the sid...

    I don't mean it when I say it The words are just lies to me So what's the point Of placing meaning behind them When it'll just be cold And useless I hate those three words Because people abuse them They don't define them They don't mean them I don't mean th...

    The waves feel higher than they were Last night when you were here When you promised you'd never let go As you spun me around in the water And kissed me under the moonlight The waves are higher As I feel my head slip under I let my arms fall and my legs relax There's no heart beat...

    I can see you looking at me A blank wall of mixed emotions Illuminating from your eyes into cold beams What's your story, boy? Why must you stick your icicles into my pupils? This ray of russet heroin I'm paralyzed under your ecstasy of stares Why won't you let me look away, ga...

    When they first told me, I wasn’t scared When they first poked the IV in my arm, I didn’t even flinch When they first shaved my head, I just sat and smiled I wasn’t afraid I might not see a future I wasn’t deathly afraid of this disease I wasn’t scared that I may die I secretly...

    It used to stand so straight and so strong But time went on and wore it down Now it appears to simply hang limp The light bulb blackened with dust The lamp shade yellowed by cigarette smoke The glistening brass, now monotonous The marble band once stood lustrous Now it slouches, fractured l...

    I sat on the rotten and decaying corner, Under the old rusty gaslight. The place where you and I met And the place where we would go, To get away from it all, But it really isn’t the same without you now. The cement once has grass Growing between the cracks, One day I remember you ...

    “Oh the blessed water, oh the blessed taste, I can't wait for the world to come to me. Oh the drunk man's daughter, living in my jeans, I am here with my words and company. Give me life illusion. Give me time confusion. Give me love solution. If the world's stuck on my back, God set...
