Goodbyeyou may have dipped my life into your toxic nature,
where it's always winter - everything's ice and dead.
but i'm alive again, honey.
the world is tropical, bright as the sun and nothing's
going to stop my victory of achieving happiness.
unlike you -
you're just going to crash and burn; as the stars in
your heart will explode, and the galaxies in your mind
will die out.
your life will turn to dust, because without me you are
raw, tainted love brought minds to be
mad and hearts to be beaten into a pulp.
fate hauled anguish and disgust at our
lungs as they filled with water
so that all promises were drowned, while
eyes became fractured due to reality.
skin became tender, started stinging from
the pain caused by ourselves.
our shattered health, heated lies, uneven
thoughts and rough voices
vocalizing the shame as our heads throbbed
from offbeat words and phrases.
somewhere along the lines, our hearts snapped
and our love was defeated by the overcoming
darkness and pollution surrounding us.
bracing for the end, constantly too stubborn
and brazen with our refusal to admit inaccuracy
love no longer glowing, fire dimming, flowers
stopped blooming -
not just losing our battle, but also losing
our war cause our vision was blurred.
our future was defeated.
NEOTERICi regain consciousness
with a sharp breath
as madness sets in
i paint neon colors
across my body
aiming to electrify
my heart and to
conquer the dark
to liberate the butterflies
that are my emotions
and embrace the colors
that depict me
and cut the galaxies
in my mind -
shatter them into pieces
crush them into dust
in attempt to revitalize myself
become a clear, glass canvas
with abstract painted on
you can't figure me out
Forever Summeryou remind me of summer.
the radiant, bold colors resemble your smile
and the warmth reminds me of how you make my body heat up.
the songs birds sing remind me of your voice,
soothing and irresistible to listen to.
your eyes remind me of the sunset as it's slowly fading -
dark, but still filled with such zeal and light.
and you, well... you're the sun. always shining and vibrant.
and even though summer has it's cloudy days, like you encounter,
the sun always comes back out.
it never gives up. it shines and brightens up the world -
my world, my life.
just as you do.
together, we're the warmth of summer. together, we're happy.
together, we're forever.
Springflowers have trouble sprouting when there's nothing but ice, so pull away from the dark and clasp the light.
set fire to the disastrous thoughts and embrace the warmth that will melt the icy touch that is keeping the buds from blooming.
ignite the passion you yearn to own as you close your eyes and set free the bitterness that overtook your soul.
subsume the pleasure of burning the demons to a crisp, and allow your pastel lips to turn upwards into a smile.

Reality Killed The Fairy Tale.blinded by the sheer force of bright lights and sparkling galaxies.
only to be broken by the sense of reality setting in,
which consisted of hollow screams and empty sacrifices;
along with dreadful imperfections that paralyzed and petrified the savior.

solely for your
but it would be
a petty waste of
and taken for
when you find yourself
in a crowd of familiar faces,
the struggle for breath
You Will PayI can taste the fear upon you:
The cold sweat in your palms,
The eyes that dart at shadows,
And the lips that are forced into a tightened smile.
You wait beneath the blankets,
Shivering each night as the anxiety rises.
You gasp at the slightest sounds and quiver...
For you are afraid of the curse that comes.
In your mind you see what you have done to me.
You watched as you ripped my tongue
And stole the very voice from my soul!
But even if I am without a body,
Even if I can no longer hold a knife to your throat.
Fear alone is enough for me to silence you,
And I will NEVER allow you to be heard!
Inner DemonI harbour a monster,
It lingers deep within.
It wants to escape me,
To tear free from my skin.
It gnaws at my insides,
And hopes that I'll give in.
It works hard to tempt me,
To lead me into sin.
It wants me to suffer
To feel its wretched sting.
But I stand true and strong,
I will not let it win.
The nights are the hardest,
In bed I pray and sing
To the Lord God above
To rid me of this thing.
But instead it remains,
My monster still within.
MazeLost within myself
Looking for a way out
This cannot end like this
Trapped in my own mind
A maze with no exit
I keep running and running
But I always end up
In the same place where I began
RustThe dwelling rust
swells this hollow garden
and somewhere in the yard
a tire swing goes flat
against the skyline.
It chokes the autumn light
in the silo,
the crush of
mums and ragged berries
It bubbles in the percolator
steeping still life
in the caul
of early morning -
the red-brown crumbs
of breakfast toast and jam
growing ghosts upon
And deep inside
I still hear you waking up
the soft salute
of morning voices
stirring the wind
outside my window.
Slaves of the deadSlaves of the dead
to find another land,
but they couldn't stand the desert and the frost.
Some died, some returned.
For those who returned
the masters had prepared a special punishment.
Their memory was wiped off.
They became thieves,
without ever understanding why.
They just felt it was the right thing to do.
Red Light ReduxHaving a truck
Paint me red
Is the strangest feeling
I’ve ever felt.
I’ve seen myself melt away
Like a mid-summer’s ice cream
While my personality screams
To be noticed. Every wall that once
Stood between me and reality
I am finally free.
Until they strapped me down
And sewed back my hands to my head.
My heart to my mouth.
My legs to the earth.
The taste of freedom
Rests gently on my tongue,
And I’ve been trying
To no avail.
Ecstasyi want to enter your mind
brush the dust off
your most faded memories
there is to know
about your life
the way you breathe
while falling asleep
how you sigh
at disappointing words
or what makes your eyes shine
and why you don't speak
when you're sad
what exactly it was
that made you fall
in love with me
