NicoleWhy can't you tell
When I'm dreaming about you?
Why don't you see
When I'm trying to call?
Why don't you hear
When I tell a thousand souls what I feel?
Nicole, Nicole I'll whisper calmly to myself
You'll still not answer
I know we'll never meet
Still we found eachother in the blazing heat
Where were you when I sat alone by myself?
Where were you when my heart stopped for a second?
Where were you when I crawled on the floor shouting out your name?
Why do I keep telling myself it's real?
Should I just let go and release my soul?
Or should I just crawl back to my black hole?
Why do I shed a tear everytime we are apart?
Why do I keep drawing a heart?
Nicole I want you to know
That it's a new day tomorrow
And I will not sit in sorrow.
Far From Perfect
I'm very far from perfect
But for you my love I will be
Just so you can love me
Equally as I love thee.
Christmas PoemChristmas is here
Bringing us snow and joy
Let's bring home our christmas trees
and not let it stand forgotten in the breeze.
Let's give a little christmas joy
to all the hopefulls in the cold
Knocking on your door, begging for some chrismtas spirit.
Let us open the doors and say welcome.
Let us give them a smile
and wish them the best
This chrismtas they might be a little warm
When you open the door and leave them no harm.
Invite the familiy, and for this chrismtas be good
for all you know maybe Santa Clause will ble knocking at the doors in the neighbourhood
Gather around the christmas tree for a story or two
While you sit cosy under your blanket drinking hot cocoa too.
Let's all gather around the fireplace
The Chrismtas tree already stand there so well
And we can already smell the homemade gingerbreads we can tell.
Let's all share some christmas joy!
Red Rose of Beauty
Red rose of beauty
With thorns so sharp and yet leaves so fragile
Red like the purest blood.
So harmless, yet so harmful.
Red rose of beauty let me pick you with fragility, take care of you
with love and forever watch your leaves grow.
Red rose of beauty I will take care of you untill you wither.
A Golden HeartI can't touch it
It's too beautiful
It's too magistic
And it makes me want to cry on my knees
Why did you have to have such a good heart?
Yet I can't be beyond than just a friend
Why did you have to have such a pure heart?
Why did you have to be so nice to me?
It shines a bright light
My eyes squint in the darkness yet I want to cry
I've never seen anything like it in a long time
It feels so warm, it makes me feel alive
It's worth more than anything on this earth
It's worth more than oil to diamonds
It's worth more than the trees that give us air
It's worth more than the water we drink
Why am I comparing your heart to these things?
It's nothing compared to your heart
It's nothing compared to my heart
It's so beautiful, but my heart is just a pile of broken glass
Let each tear drop from the sight of it
I can't touch it though, I don't want to touch it
It will desicrate the beautiful heart
I will violate the glory of your heart
It's like I'm looking into the eyes of God
He sees everythin
Strangers in the moonlightStrangers in moonlight
just two people passing by
linked forever by just a smile...
when your voice goes unheard in the crowd
and you yearn for a sense of belonging that makes others proud
Distant and cold
meek or bold
In the silence of the night under the moonlit sky
your heartbeat unfolds secrets untold
MasksEveryone wears a mask
Whether it be of smiling or pain
Hate or Love
Shame or pride
Ego or Anger
Everyone wears a mask
It cracks sometimes
People can see through the chipped paint
See past the fake
See past the facade
We all wear masks
Ones of animals
Ones of other people
Ones that we would like to be
Ones that we hate
We all have a mask
Something we can hide behind
Something we can use to fight
Something that keeps us safe
Keeps us okay in the beginning
Keep our secrets
Hold our treasures in locked vaults
Keep our hearts from breaking
Keep the tears from showing
We all have masks
You can paint them up
It can be anything
Because no one can see past the mask
No one knows what anyone's face really looks like
Humanity is made of Masks
What is yours painted of?
Of Lost Causethey say every lonely sigh gathered from children in that city
pours through her body and redolent skin, read through
the ink of vines on veins and restless, small leaves- torn with
tired hands and god's lost smile.
they say our days are numbered, like the
creases between your skin and the break of waves on charted oceans. maybe
the fallout of a country drawn by prophets with cracked chords and
an endless list of listlessness.
they say happiness is glorified by the example of science: the reaction given
and reduction taken in a stretch of paradoxical lies of paradoxical truths-
sounds of simplified silence and their tenuous strains of recognition
of the pale likeliness and dreams of a setting sun.
they never mention the beauty behind
a dying elephant.
I've Loved YouI've loved you
For forever it seems
Every day and night
And always in my dreams
I've loved you
From the very start
Since the moment we'd met
You'd captured my heart
I've loved you
So much, that time stood still
So I could love you forever
As I always will
I love you
No -ed in the way
I loved you back then
And I love you today
no more jokes, no more laughterAfter eighty-eight and a half hours awake,
No grand gestures or passing out, hitting your
head on the way down,
just one body shucking clothes as it crawls
into clean sheets. Pillows and a blanket and
the soft night air.
Two eyes, closed.
In the morning, nothing will be the same.
The past week is a long-faded memory.
Snapshots, facts, things left in strange places.
This is what the body does,
And you forget with it.
Dear young soldierYou pulled the trigger,
Saved all those lives.
You carried your comrade,
Across the enemy lines.
Scarred and broken, armless and scared.
You led them to Heaven's paradise.
Brave young soldier tell me why,
Why oh why did you tie that noose?
Did not home smell so clean and safe
Once you rested between stainless sheets?
Was the taste of her welcome home kiss not enough?
Or the comfort of hot coffee satisfying?
Were these memories of bloodied battles-
so strong that you could no longer stand it?
That the only freedom that you fought for,
Spoke to you in the strands of this rope?
Were the reasons you fought blinded now?
By the steadfast flashbacks of dying friends?
You paid enough to become a scarred man-
To hang yourself to rid your mind of forever's pain.
It's Never Enough It's Never Enough
All the smoke and the drink, filling my head,
But you're still there, wishing me dead,
The healing scars on my arm never felt so rough,
Yet you scream from within, "It's never enough".
The world is colder when you fight with me,
With you here, I can never be who I want to be.
But you're always there, crushing my dreams,
Tearing apart my mind, pulling at the seams.
When I feel free, you're still in my thoughts,
I can see your eyes, chiselled from quartz,
Staring right into me, still pushing me down,
I stand here ashamed, society's clown.
MasksWhen a smile is a frown
And a frown is a smile,
The eyes we must crown
For relinquishing wile,
When a laugh is a tear
And a tear holds no pain,
Will fear fear to fear
And fearfully abstain?
When the act is the truth
We've lied to believe,
And the fable in sooth
Is but a peerless weave,
When each mortal mistake
Is a tale and a song
And the scriptures are fake
Or perhaps they're wrong,
When the mind is the eye
That sees the outside
But shame, it's too shy
Of the tongue which has lied,
When the answers are easy
To the questions unknown,
Do you not feel queasy
Of how little we've grown?
When acceptance is feigning
For it keeps us alive
Like sunshine to greenlife
On deceit we thrive,
When certainty is in doubt
And fiction is a fact,
The truth may come out
But is it ever intact?
When can mere candor
Hold its frail fort,
When all this slander
Plays such a good sport,
When can we speak without a plan
And in our authenticity bask,
When the mask becomes the man?
Or when the man becom
River Flows in You
I'm lost without you
You hold my heart close
My tears even closer
You are my only
When I cry tears of sadness
You carry them in your palms
I keep breathing
My heart keeps beating
When I wake up I'm lonely
When you wake up next to me I'm loved
It's a dream
It's a fairytale
May our chapter never end
You are my everything
An angel sent from heaven
Let our heart beat the sweetest melody
One more day, one more time
You are truly
The River flows in you.
A Bloody, Stupid Miracle The day we’d cured the human condition was the day I put a bullet through my head and didn’t die. It was also the day I realized how scared I actually was of death, and after hours of muscle ache from holding that gauze against my open skull, after the wound closed and everything went back to normal, I had myself a good old-fashioned brainstorm. How ironic.
But when summer came, everything had fallen to shit. The air scorched my skin and parched my tongue every time I took a breath. The sun glared down on a rapidly-collapsing world, full of the undying bastard children of cruelty and misfortune. What was one to do when their cells regenerated faster than they decomposed?
My feet hit the pavement, now littered with jagged bits of glass to snap at my toes, thoroughly baked by the blazing ball of bitter disdain high overhead. Today was worse than yesterday. Though I’d often wondered the purpose of it anymore, I
