panel

wood paneled walls ring around me, on the floor my legs are twisted up into a bundle under me. Laptop in front. The sound of laughter or crying floats up from the stairwell

sleepless

He lay awake, staring at the ceiling. Again. A soft sigh escaped him. He had thought—hoped—that tonight would be different. That this new medicine would be the one that would finally help. But nothing could erase the memories that kept him awake.

typewriter

The clack of my keys was soothing. At least I thought so. From Jonathan’s muffled groan, I could tell he did not feel the same.
“Seriously, Eva?” His voice was miffed as he spoke through a pillow. “I’m trying to sleep!”

different

Perhaps being different is actually a bad thing. Perhaps unique qualities and outstanding traits actually hinder us from being successful. Because maybe, the average person simply seeks an equal. Maybe being different is what prevents me from being liked or appreciated. Maybe it’s better if I just blend in.

You know when you always have that one annoying kid in class? yeah, and the only way you can drown him is out is with a heavy base and earbuds…..guess who forgot to bring theirs today -_-

concert

Your moans like a concert
my favorite tune
to throw my head back to and
scream
like the stream running between me and you
every little inch
covered in the flesh
of me and you
through and through
sweaty
wet
splash my fears away
as waves crash
between bodies
between hearts
one of one
two of two
stop, start, start.

forklift

Heavy on my heart
heavy, baby take me down.
I could drown in you
with a smile on my face
and a joy to call my own.

points

There comes a certain point in your life where you begin to look back at everything you have done. You can search back to a time where your innocence had been untouched & then fast forward to points where this innocence has been lost. And you decide whether life was better then or now.

heatwave

I felt the heatwave
in the ashes
the sting of past lashes
and rugburns.

I saw that fragile heart
go up in flames
in shame
and a lost will to live.

I’d be a tragedy
if I couldn’t forgive
But only a fool
to forget.

zone

It’s a no man zone
a burning bridge
an endless ocean
where crustaceans live.
It’s a dangerous sanctuary
in a dark back alley
Semen on the dumpster
but no one can see.

giving

Giving in
giving up
giving hope to hopeless rubble
giving you
a chance to be
an ocean
let me sink.

defy

Your eyes defy all things vile.
sweet mischief smile
Starry sky in my dark, black night.

The way your lips curl
into a dream thing,
a whisper of a kiss
so loud my ears ring
to the gentle tune
of your throbbing heart song.

You sing in motion,
every breath a melody
that I cannot forget.

Defiant of the violence
that once chilled my aching bones
Rebel against my black and blue
splashing warm hues
and pastel tones.

clasp

She clutched the clasp of her necklace,
choking and reckless
cocaine fingertips sliding across jutting clavicles.

Tragic and magical
Two faced and tired.

Life was so casual
for a heart set on fire.

brewery

This brewery
that is my body,
it’s through with me
Out by Tuesday.
Got a letter in my mailbox heart
Eviction notice

revolving

The earth revolves around the Sun
Mimicking my spirals
Surrounding you.

Tienes mi corazon.
You’ve always been my one.
Somehow.

spiral

The downward spiral
tight and flimsy
Tipsy,
You and the fire
of hate.
You can’t berate me
anymore
I won’t participate
in this war
Forlorn – you know.
Forlorn – you now.

rival

There’s a rivalry
a revelry
inside of me
Don’t lie to me,
I’m flying high
away from the pain
of those choked up days
I couldn’t breathe.
Feel me,
peel me…
Naked.

Rival the chains
That have you stuck on the ocean floor.
You don’t have to drown
Don’t have to kick and scream anymore.
Your heart is on fire
But it needs air to live
Come up now, my love
Come up and breathe.

nutrients

Nourish my cold bones,
Breathe life into these sunken eyes
and let me see the sky
again.
These eyes are only dry,
because the well’s run out of water.
We cry until we’re dried up and wrung out –
Show me the laughter
again.

pan

I’ve got a panoramic view
And all I see is me and you.
Giants in the sky,
Lightning in our eyes.
We strike,
Excite.

Deadpan eyes,
Hard to cry but
Only from the callous holding that ocean inside.
Rest your tired hands, love.
Open the floodgates
I’d love to swim in your sea.

drinking

Drinking up the sunshine
From your beautiful warm eyes,
What a surprise,
This life,
You’ll be my favorite demise.

The bottle slips
from my fingertips
And the shards crash on the cold hard floor.

Then I find you at my door,
A sanctuary from the war.

starry

Starry eyes
stare at these scars of mine
Like nothing could stop the sunshine
from seeping from my pores.

Your lovely bones
Make me feel at home
Even though
It’s just a thought.

soda

So enticing,
So inviting,
I could spend all my days delighting
in those soda-pop eyes.
Sail around the world with me
Baby I’m gonna try.
There’s always an adventure
In a love so divine.

Soda-licious, superstitious,
What’s a girl to do when no one’s being vicious?
Just sit with this,
Live with it.
Be a silent sound.

He cracked open his cold cola, taking a swig as if it were his last, and it was his last. They found him the next day hanging from the ceiling, no letter to be found. The sound of his heavy breath recorded on a loop, in a cassette in his old boom box.

“Why this?”
“It was his only song.”

He sang his heart out in exasperated panting.

A star that burned out before he ever learned to shine.
