relate

She was the wall beside me,
around me,
everywhere I took myself to.
She became the pavement
my tears fell onto,
she was the drops of the fountain
that sprayed me.
She was and she
became everyone I talked to.
Soon, she was no more, but all I saw.

laughing

The ones that make your stomach hurt. It reaches your eyes and mine. It’s dizzying how good it feels. You make ma forget everything whole. For a moment, we are whole. It comes in equal waves, these moments to match the bad. They are everywhere. Sometimes I lose sight of them, so you take my hand and guide me here. But I can’t find you these days. So today, I’m reaching around, into the empty dark, the silence that has become all I hear. I wish you were here.

butterfly

Today, my heart had wings for two seconds, and I had the faint feeling of may-be-we-could-be, this hopeful yet absolutely hopeless hope. I thought for 2 seconds about him. But I know I am the dull craters while he is the moon. I am nothing in comparison. And my heart became still again.

stare

I look on,
ahead.
There’s no gazing here.
No dreamy eyes or rueful wishing.
Everything is still.
Not glazed over or
romantic in any way.
They look at me funny as I stand there,
pretend dreaming,
walking past me
my past before me
and behind me
tearing into me
keeping me still and
staring.

meanwhile

it took my breath away. i waited the entire day, and now, here i was in this intricate little place where there seemed to be nothing to hold me down. i was being pulled in every direction/

and they were on their way

selling

Its easy to believe in what they hold up

Easy to look up and smile
and scream at everything inside
the fire is wreching
and the days are raining

salesman

you’re doing all these things to sell that you’re alright. that you’re okay. It seems that everybody can buy anything, cause no one stood there to read the small print, the small creases on your forehead, the small things thing son your face. so you may be a good salesman. but to me, your average. you’re worse than average cause I saw right through you.

wall

the concrete armor that floats around me every time I speak. but. I get too attached to all these people, and it still stands. how do you explain that, dearest wall that so typically prevents the heart from getting close?

systems

logical processes through which we find the supposed solution we were doomed to find in the first place. and then there are those; the complex natured structures that we can never quite completely rap our heads around. how I wish, you would try to comprehend just may be a fraction of an inch of what was in mine.

sure

I was convinced. certain that nothing else could save me except him. His arms around me would hold me together until I was whole again. His lips were the only ones that could dry these tears, and he was all I wanted. A year ago, I wouldn’t have been so convicted in my choice. but here I was.

alone.
even with that strange emotion.

soil

I raised my head just a little, to see nothing but the same things i saw yesterday and the day before that… how I long for the moment I can stem out and finally see the blue-gray ceiling, sapphire in its vastness, that everyone else walks under and seems not to understand.

mass

Her heart weights a tonne
As she blinks through every day
it won’t go away

her heart weights a tonne as she blinks through each day
she wished for less and all she gets is more
what is this matter? she asks.
where will it go?

stillness

numb
i watch someone else’s arms hug me, trying to hold me together
im afraid of what i am… who i am

sand
im holding on so tight, it slips away

rose
where are your petals?

earth
its precise rotations leaving me behind in my thoughts

ocean
where is the surface? i think i’ve gone under

faces
travel past me… they have somewhere to be, somewhere they are.

hands
still in this long briefness

drops
running down like rain– it’s like i’ve fallen from the sky

deep
wound in my back

blood
rushing in such complete silence, it’s as if it were unmoving

lonesome
day
night
fog

me.

methods

lost and desperate
hoping to be magnanimous

and then it begins, as i see
shrivels of hope,
beams of light,
staffs of red
the irony
the ivory colour of your eyes
the sensation, the desire
as the seconds ticking by
standing,
gazing
impudence.

tell me,
i find my way

and then im back
in this lost and desperate
place,

why?

instructions

ill try to follow it exactly
word for word
the mechanical approach
just as you wanted
just as you asked
cause it wouldn’t matter to me
it would only matter to you
it should be precise to the last intrinsic detail
no method, just spot on
on the double
just as you like it.

minute

these little words
traveling across the page
like little birds

am I crazy to think
I could walk along with them

not the same as what you are
not what they see

could I be?
would you let me…

I’ll wait for the answer

even though i know
with the bat of an eye
you’ll paint a Vincent Van Gogh

emptying

that used to be mine, what you’re holding. yeah, that.
what are you looking at? I wasn’t really speaking to you. It was something I wanted to say, but was too afraid to, so please just look away.
It doesn’t matter, it’s not like it ever did…
we’re gone. it’s not like we ever existed in the first place. So pretend I was never here, and walk on in your life, just like you would have. No, don’t hesitate… keep going.
Don’t look back.

even though it did.

gladiator

i jumped off the roof
and there he was
his eyes sinking into mine moving closer
as if i knew him all my life

entice

it was a kiss to
build a dream on

it held me
brought me in

and never let go

even though you did

rattle

It was so intense
She thought she might break without
his arms around her

(haiku)

The sound was blaring
She thought she might break without
his arms around her

heartache

my heart throbs, the tear drops of your eyes

and she aches because you had to say good bye

but she never even knew why

branches

you reach out to move up, but all you end up doing is falling.
because it was just too high
because you just weren’t good enough
because you gave up
because everything just came crashing down
because you couldn’t
because it didn’t matter anymore

even though it did

flip

seemingly
torture

from above the gaze

what a stupid girl

what terrible lies

in her own heart

his eyes pierced through her

and everything ended up

backwards

attendant

i waited for it to stop
paranoid of its beginning
and then starting to daze
into the fog
created by her

with the lace around her fingers
and the auburn hair sparkling
bright under the sun
her voice radiating
her actions rippling
all i could do was stare
from down below
from the ground
level headed and afraid
what if?
may be..?
should i?

but i left without a word
leaving her all high and mighty
be being in need
not miserable or depressed
but simply deprived of what she had

but she stared after me,
as if i had it all
