lessons

So little time, so many lessons to learn.

I contemplate this thought as I sit with my laptop in my lap as my fingers fly across the keys. I want to learn many things, but I lack the discipline to sit down and follow Nike’s catch phrase and JUST DO IT!

So many lessons to learn, so much time wasted.

moonshine

a swig o’ moonshine’ll put stars in ya eyes, like some spaghetti western cowboy pistol blaze like fireflies, a sure shooter, dirty dishwater and chew- hock, ptui! staring down the barrel eyes wild like wolves feral, reach for the sky! *bullseye* “the only thing i get from killin a man is the recoil of my rifle”

gentleman

a gentleman with hurtful hands and a smile that could charm the pants off me. oh, the gentlemanly gesture of the gentle gentleman, loathed lothario;

curtains

sun beams break through the curtains, i writhe in sweat stained sheets, another day, to wake all for nothing, but to go back to sleep. safe and numb in dreams, where i can see your face, and youre soft, perfect, beautiful and you love me. washed out hues of your pale blues and dingy white tee, chestnut hair and bobcat grin, crooked five fingers and a light in your eyes that reminds me of the daybreak creeping through my window, blinding, setting ablaze the curtains, and im on fire, the house is on fire, my clothes, on fire, my books, on fire, everything on fire the way you look at me, if you ever do, but i cant tell because i always look away when you catch me staring at you. so i close the curtains as the wind howls a pitiful loneliness, begging to be let in and trees cast shadows like hands that want to be held, rain pitter patters against the window ive never felt better, i hope it lasts for weeks on end so i can stay inside stay in bed and dont have to pretend, alone in my room, i feel closer to you, than when your right beside me, this whole city could drown and i wouldnt even flinch, leave me alone i just want to go back to bed, unwind and lose my mind and dream of you were you are so true, so real, so you and i hope i die in my sleep so i dont have to wake up from this, come when morning breaks and the curtains cant contain the light, it will serve to remind me of why youre not here why youre not mine and why you never could be.

grove

as i rose from the grove, you, my once love whom now i loathe
your lifeless body in the backseat, you felt so cold so i turned on the heat
wrapped you in a blue blanket
but still i think about it, that song stuck in my head
the lovers that left strands of hair in my bed,
delicate as a spider’s silk wove, still think about it so
going nowhere but for hours i drove
my once love whom now i loathe
ill bury you deep, deep down in this grove

terrain

on a vast empty terrain, you pray for solace i pray for rain, still no advances came, wondering if ive anything left to gain, but alas, same remains the same im left wading thru your riddle and rhyme, you set my pain to poetry and chime, same remains the same and there is no endgame, no still not over you, like muddy waters im wading thru, stuck, in a vast empty terrain, you pray for lightening i pray away the pain, struck, with your unforgiving arrows, all this water and not a drop to drink. soaked to marrow, my ships beginning to sink , ive nothing left to go on so i keep on singing the same song, and all this time i believed, i was so strong, guess i was wrong, left hand on your gun hip ready to jump ship

i was so wrong, now i bottle sip still singing the same song

attuned

i am not attuned, well out of practice, cant tell a lie even though im an actress. the fact is, we fell apart long before the start, but nothing’s changed because i still think of you, all the things my friends say just aint getting through. i have to let go, my mind is yelling yes but my heart is crying no. im your fucking fool, youre just a fucking tool. re: astrologial mumbo jumbo, pg. 99 of COSMO™ it just didnt work out, guess we’re not “attuned” but i could still make you swoon, roll your eyes back and croon, like a wolf howling at the moon, im an impatient man staring at the clock, counting soon, soon, soon..
the day is done by a quarter past noon and ive nothing to show for it, the ship is sinking, maybe you could chauffeur it. but im so fucking over it. ugh, fuck it

game

love is not a game, im tired more than ever of being treated like some prize

» Posted By lgrey On 12.19.2012 @ 9:18 am

silly games.
like slipping on banana peels just to keep you entertained.
we rough house’d near the green house, the pool lying yonder
i learned the best of things from you,
like how to spit, scratch and curse.
sniffing glue, eating dirt and playing with worms
i grew out of my old blue dress
but still, so socially inept.
we grew up, like i knew the day would come
the gold had turn to rust
and threads unravelled, spun.
the fish have all belied up
as you alley-oop’d, and my ship sunk.
the buoy bobs admist the plunder
rain falls over and crashes thunder.

theres no use

interest

circuit board short-circuits
youve set off a spark, triggered intrigue
my heart beats itself to a pitiful fatigue.
i want
you.
i like
you.
(oh no, i do)
do you think of me sometime? (i do all the time.)
i wrote your name in the steamed shower door.
picked flowers with you in mind on my way home.
i love the way you make my name sound.
kiss me the way you do each syllable.
hold me.
touch me.
i think i want to let you in
sometime.
maybe.
how do you like your coffee?
or can i make you some tea?
maybe,
sometime?

en garde.
with eyes set to kill.

trial

on a tightrope.
i choke.
questions i cant answer.
crimes that are not mine.
(you could call me the young manson)
men without faces,
men without names
they bid my undoing.
center stage of my damn shame.
long coats and gavels
sigmund freud babble
walking, talking
three-piece business suits
men crafted of lies with checkered patterned ties
(to match)
my fate?
i anticipate: burned at the stake.
re:circa salem ’92

or escape:
a jagged cliff overhangs,
overcast and crashing waves.

E-37101
guilty.

begin

/first encounter/
flick your cigarette/pretend not to notice.
glances: (constant) from afar when the either isnt looking.
catch her eye. cast a smile.
your name.
her name.
(and your excuse just to say it a thousand times over)
big shot,
small talk.
and a hug goodnight (serves as closure)
“call me”

end scene.
heart play: begin.

stillness

a stillness in the water.
a drop of interruption break in the glaciers.
send shivers through the spines of pine trees.
our bodies are rusted soldiers in the midst of a chemical warfare.
welcome to the cinema, this is the american dream.
stay seated with a stillness.an unwavering of a content unwillingness.
i dont know what an oxymoron is,
but i imagine “civil war” must be one of them.

sustain

a pet goldfish.
a conversation.
an exercise routine.
a friendship.
a diet.
an orgasm.
a relationship.
a job.
myself.

– all the things i cannot sustain
