The homeless living on the street
The homeless living far away from
anyone, they know
Homeless, lost is such a haunting word
They get lost in the pavement
We look away from them.
Some live there by choice.
Some never see the way out.
We are all the same. Looking
for a place of our own.
(Casting down, more like throwing down
Destroying, breaking apart
Completely dismembering something
Throw it towards a direction, with force,
Letting go of something and not getting it back the same)
You may not like what it looks like
After it has been cast down
But it is yours, so you take it
and try to reassemble the pieces.
But you…[Read more]
The trench was deep
There was no way out, it seemed
I have dug a hole
That only I could have fallen into
That only I can get myself out of
Panic set in
As the darkness became darker
I can hear me breathing
But is there another breath?
Someone above has come to the rescue?
“I have done nothing wrong”
Or so I thought.
Grabbed by the wrists and ankles,
I was carried to the darkest room
Wondering why and who and what was done
The only light that shown
was from a crack in the roof
Hoping, praying for anyone to find me
Falling asleep, then waking up to find me
Safe in my room…
What if I am still trapped inside?
Knock on the door of my heart
I may not open for you
Because you knock like everyone else
You say the same things
But if you keep knocking
I may see the difference
If you change your voice
From all the others
I may take a look to see
If you are who you say to be
You think this is all a game. Trying to control my own character to lead it where I think it should go. But I keep dying. I keep losing. You keep fighting back and knocking me down. Just like a guy to do things like that. This is why I didn’t like playing video games with my brother. He was always better than me at those fighting games. But he…[Read more]
Five days. Five hours. Five o’clock.
Five fingers on your hand. One day my hand will have a ring
But what if I’m wrong?
Five chances. I’ve messed up on them all.
Most have moved on,
But I feel I am still
What has happened to me
In these 5 years?
How did I get stuck here?
He talked to himself outloud
as he walked past the waiting patrons,
heads tilted over to the left,
waiting for the bus to take them
and me, he walked past me
And spoke as if he were telling me
mysteries of the world.
I couldn’t help but listen, and it turned my head
Away from the fixed stares.
I blinked twice. How did I get here?
The halls were bright with the flickering florescent lights.
Footsteps can be heard, coming towards us from down the hall.
I close my eyes and look up, the lights still shining through my eyelids.
I open my eyes as soon as I head the footsteps stop.
I couldn’t look at the face, but I heard his voice.
“Everything is going to be fine.”
I never…[Read more]
I received a gift,
It was something I did not recognize.
I did not know what to do with what I was given
But something about it gave me hope
That maybe one day I would use this
And it would change something inside of me
So I kept it in my shirt pocket
Your heart close to mine
So that one day, I would realize
I love you as much as you love me.
The walked themselves home
Tripping over themselves
as they laughed in the moonlight.
It was another long night,
Long nights of dancing in the flashing lights,
Moments of pure bliss.
They can only last for so long,
These nights of regrets.
Major pain. I hide a major pain inside.
Questions that burned within me when i was a child
Stuffed into the cavities of my heart
Forgotten until now
I never thought about these life changes
until they hit me in the face
I could have prepared for this
But now I must face this, once and for all.
