Hints of yellow, pink, blue, and black painted across the sky

Outside of my four brick walls.

My eyes don't need to capture a picture of it.

They're too busy trying to focus on

Your soft, pale skin and caramel eyes.

Tiny white petals swirl around you as you float above me.

I get closer to knowing you.

Their black centers totally ripe.

Each center having a small memory of you.

Each petal gluing me to you.

The wind becomes your hair… Continue

Your heart is a verb.

It shakes and makes me lighter.

Hear it pound faster,

Feel it thump harder,

See my chest go in and out,

Taste the blood it spits out.

You're scared to touch haunt of the hub where my passion is born,

So you stand back and let your eyes feel your spirit taste it fading away,

Until what remains are the same remnants as Jimmie Hoffa's body in Michigan.

I'll leave a little something that you can find.

You'll be like a child in a… Continue

Eleven to Twenty One Eons and Counting

Posted on January 11, 2010 at 12:49am 0 Comments

Flowing through the days

No worries of time consume us

Just the little things

Like how we will get our candy today

Hover below us

Not realizing the time we have left

Is floating above our heads

Eventually we realize slowly

We aged

And you left me

So I could solve the puzzle of this metropolis

On my own

To understand why

This hell is the way it is

For five super eons

My lifespan froze

And the… Continue

Seeing life as just reality is too easy for me

Instead, I like to see life as an image of menageries

Giving in to the temptations of the colorful swirls of

Joyful hazes of serene vibrations

Picking away at the rainbow painted llamas

Chewing on a patch of dried mushrooms

While the penguin strolling lawn gnomes

Puff away at the red pipes hanging from their lips

Laying under spiral trees of pink and green

As benign varieties of music notes

Make… Continue

My Life’s Been Long Gone

Posted on December 31, 2009 at 10:30am 0 Comments

Souls sitting in silence are as useless as an appendix

Being perched above a fire full of sticks

It makes me sick when people suddenly don’t know how to speak

Because they’re so untrusting of another soul that they build walls around them

To me, it makes them weak

I seek a person who can hold an intelligent conversation

With connotations of sensations of creepy pulsations

So strong that they run down my spine

And in time, we find that we knew each other all… Continue
