Secret Life of Me
One step forward, two steps back, some days I can, some I just can't..
Love me like you did once, when hands were rough but eyes were soft..
You kissed my neck while tears stained my cheek, but if you saw it, you didn't speak..
The secret life I lead.
Someone Like Me.
I dreamt of a kiss, and I wonder how you are.
We don't really talk anymore.
I told you I love you, and you looked away.
Why would you want somebody like me..
This place is infected with memories,
Infected with you..
My veins turn black and I bleed right through.
I reached out and you turned away.
Why would you hurt somebody like me..
We laid in the streets,
While the stars crystallized the ground.
I could feel your heart beat,
And our glass walls fell down.
I asked you to stay,
But you pushed me away.
Why would you leave somebody like me..
I dreamt of the death of us,
And I woke up crying.
You said it gets even the best of us,
But I thought you were lying.
You said you were meant for better things.
I held on by a thread I tied to your finger,
In place of a ring.
But impatience wore it loose, creased it with care.
So I made it a noose, to hang in the air.
You fit it to my neck, watched as lips turned blue.
"How could anyone love somebody like you?"
Find What You Love and Let it Kill You.
They said you were the wicked kind,
With danger in your smile.
They said that you had mastered time,
Could turn it something vile.
They said that you had seen it all,
Through mirrors in your eyes.
That you would push me up against the wall,
And kiss me to demise.
But that's the way I would've chosen,
To let you take me until I'm broken.
They said you were a cold one,
With a heart as dark as death.
From you no good could come,
That you would have my final breath.
But on your lips was fire,
Tamed and haunted.
Consumed by desire,
Their taste was all I wanted.
They said that you were broken,
For you the skies would never open.
So you burned it to the ground, with a deadly passion.
Pierced my heart with sound, an ember in the ashes.
They said that you were damned,
With a wound that would never heal.
They said my blood would stain the sand,
That there was nothing you wouldn't kill.
He's the wicked kind, they said,
With danger in his smile.
He won't miss you when you're dead,
But he'll hold y
Ash and Smoke and Dirt and Sage
It stirs outside the window, staving off sleep. Kicks up the dust of whispers, charged with electricity. Neither moon nor sun will rise, blind to one thousand eyes. Scent of cinnamon, and clover. Pangs of water rushing over.. Swept up and twisted inside. Worn away and set aside. Left for dead, a bed of bones. Gone for good, turned to stone. Nothing of this world withstood.. Nothing could remain. It flooded in on piercing wings and broke the chains, freed us from our mortal cage.
Ash and smoke and dirt and sage..
Visions on Her Lips
Tasting visions from her lips,
Smell of flowers in her hair.
Tracing ciphers on her hips,
That deep, all-knowing stare.
The truth dances on her tongue,
Words that make you feel too young..
Are you ready, she says,
She leads you to her bed.
Kisses down your neck,
With a soft, quivering breath.
Hearts beating in time, start to still.
Veins intertwine, you surrender your will.
Time and sound begin to bend,
She shows you how the world will end..
The Casualties of Love
She looks in his eyes,
And she looks to the sky.
She wishes she could fly,
But he pulls off her wings,
One feather at a time.
"I'm fine," she lies,
He brushes the tears from her eyes.
Holding tight to a smile she always fakes,
"I just didn't think I had any heart left to break."
She looks across the sea,
And she feels the wind sigh.
She just wants to be free,
But he pulls off her wings,
One feather at a time.
"I want to forget you," he whispers,
And leans in to kiss her.
She's falling from above,
Another casualty of love.
She watches the ground getting closer,
And she wishes she would die.
He just wants to hold her,
So he pulls off her wings,
One feather at a time.
The Shameless, Blameless, Nameless
Hope lasting impression,
Pulling at hair, gasping for air.
Scratches in skin, the sweet scent of sin.
Each look in the eye, another piece dies.
Tangled in thread, a fresh hole to the head.
The morning masked, another demon for the past.
Leaving the mess,
A cold empty wretch,
A hopeless case, wrapped in a beautiful face.
A sneer and a glare,
Over skin taut and fair..
Ocean blue skies, hid under black clouded eyes,
"Oh well, I tried."
She used to talk
She used to sleep at night
She never fought
Never cared for what was right
He's rarely silent
His voice no longer soft
His eyes are violent
From a heart now lost
He comes in close
In one hand a knife, the other a rose
The breath of death
Shivers down her neck
Eyes bright and clear
Have seen the end that is near
She holds the rose to her lips, she steadies his hand
He brushes the hair from her eyes, falters her stand...
I'd rather have Death as a friend, than an enemy.
And I'll give Death a persona. A face and a voice, so I can watch him as he watches me. So I can hear him whispering in the corner. I'll give him a hand to hold, so he can give me a touch to feel. And I'll keep him in the cellar, with all my other friends..
So I can look him in the eye and say,
"It never, ever, ends."
I had a bad day today. And you're always still so far away.. They're coming for me, I know, but I can't see them. We never are as good as we pretend. But I'll shelter you with my storm, we are disasters of our own design..
Death, my old friend.. Come to keep me warm again. Time wrapped me in your second skin.
You've come home to me again.
frostbittenmy fragmented bones are
chipping away and you stutter
that it wasn’t your fault
and i'm wondering if the
crystal frost on your eyelids has plagued
if the warm beating of your pulse has
disintegrated into the moon's
eternal curse of never letting
Stepseach step we take together
is noted down in the book of universe
each breath you take beside me
is counted and measured
there are only as many kisses to spare
there are only as many touches to share
one day I will abandon you one day you will forget
and our paths will never cross again
I wait patiently for the day
I speak hurtful words just so it comes sooner
but then again why do I even care when the world
is all but a stage to fill for a while
to scream on it and die and fight till the audience
anounces the winner
and you smile and cry and blush and it all complicates
everything contradicts any plan I could have made
so that I am the victor so that nothing but I emerges
from within the ruin
darling you will be the death of me
and I will die craddling you
having the last laugh
that's as hollow as the devil's heart
the little mermaid(s)we were breathing underwater
exhaling and inhaling,
the first time we'd learned how to
this was the underwater ruin
that was balancing our names
on the fringe of its star-studded tongue,
our fingers spread apart
in a million particles of ocean dust--
and her freckles were splattered
across her face like acrylic
this was our beginning.
her hips were bending and flipping
through the breaking waves like she had
and i thought about the pillaging pearls of
water that escaped her mouth when
we piroutted together beneath
the ripples of the ocean's body
(which, was practically aligned with
how much longer would we survive
before we ran out of air?
Just wanted you to knowTo me you are the most amazing thing, like the sun!
You shine so bright and you never dim until you go down.
You are my flower that I will care for.
And yet even though you tell me to go to sleep I can't. Because I love you too much.
When I talk to you I feel as if I've been injected with morphine because I feel so calm.
When I feel as if I've made you angry I feel every bone in my body fracture.
When you tell me you cry I can't help but do the same.
Its coming to Christmas soon.
And your the only Christmas I need.
And you are all I need.
I can't wait to hug you.
I can't wait to kiss you.
But there's more.
You're laugh lifts me up.
Your smile is like being confronted by diamonds.
Your hair is just simply. Fluffy.
Your eyes shine like stars.
And I promise on Christmas Eve I will stay up to talk to you. All night for me but all day for you.
All I want is you to be happy!
Because your happiness means everything to me.
Your the most beautiful thing to me.
Thought I'd just let you kno
When We Dancewhen we dance
for both the very first and last time
I feel like crying
raking my hands up and down
your willing body I know we will
be like this after today
for I know happy endings
are not meant for pairs like you and me
each time I see your smile hear your laughter
when I feel your heat slipping in-between our clasped
silhouettes my hand grasping at your hair playfully
I know this is the beginning
and the end
all in one
once and for all
I know it is indeed better for us both to part ways
to keep dreaming instead of acting on the feelings
buried deep underneath all of our daily problems
expectations of this pitiful life
that has to be spent alone
it is better for you to run away from me
as much as
it is acceptable for me not to look you in the eye
when I feel your back and throat
when your voice resonates deep within me
as you say
you love me
and I cannot swallow the bitter lump filling my throat
chemistrynitrogen is essential for all living
and i'm wondering if you're my
if i can just live off of you.
denial can be quite romantiche told her, "i like you better with your makeup off,"
as he hooked the hair that fell awkwardly in front of her face
over the red tips of her nearly frostbitten ears
"so there's a moment when you don't like me much at all?"
she said jokingly, her smile lighting up the living room
brighter and warmer than the fireplace that was alight in the corner
he laughed at her joke, and held her closer to his chest
because he knew that these sort of things don't last forever
since even the highest mountains come crashing down eventually
and she's prepared for the fall, she has a checkered history
full of betrayals and lying, whether it is the one done
with the mouth or the one down on soft beds and cramped backseats
so they enjoy the moment, and go through the motions
passionate and intimate, letting their bodies intertwine
and become one, vulnerable for just a brief, fleeting moment
but when the deed is done and they lie on opposite sides of a
cold and enormous bed, will they think about who the
Happy Birthday Darlinghappy birthday to you my darling
on this your day of birth
such special splendor this day now holds
for your birth brought into being such wonder
such magnificence personified in You
my heart excels and sparkles with knowledge
that you are in this old world making it so much better
I toast to you and tip my hat in honor of you today
Helena my darling muse on this your special day
my respect and love goes out across far oceans
to lay at your feet on this day of your birth
I honor you on this day and find happiness
that I have come to know you Helena
for the world is a large place
and the fact that I met you
fills me with the charm of good luck
love and joyous celebrations!!!!
Lazy Afternoonyou are so beautiful just like you are
no need for any superfluous gestures
tonight your warm touch is all I ask for
your neck your knees
your toes your back
so smooth and yet elegantly arched forward
I do not want to be selfish in this pleasure of mine
and as your voice whispers invitingly in my ear
and as your softly smiling face looks back at me
I know that we are two sides of the same coin
found after so many years of a seemingly incurable void
with the music resonating through our room
I am sure everything will be more than fine tonight
and perhaps we will find a place for us both in the world
ready to murder and strip us from anything that we love
if we are not careful enough and do not mind each step we take
be my muse tonight darling and let me make you immortal
as we kiss and sculpt each other and the poem
is the only witness that I ever knew you
that you ever cared and that we did find each other
in this vast and yet fucked-up universe
Keep in Touch!
