Unwanted thoughts

I don’t think of you, but my mind does sometimes, and it kills me that you’re not by my side. Nights we spent cozied up together are now silenced by the oceans between us. You drifted away, and I’ve been drowning ever since. I bow down to my heart as I stare at the blank … More Unwanted thoughts

Nature’s burden

The birds sing the same songs every morning, the wind dances through the grass, the sun leaves nothing to the imagination. I push myself forward, my heart paces faster, my skin wrestles with the heat. I thought I escaped, but every step I take leads me to the same place. The birds stop singing, the … More Nature’s burden

Heart wide shut

I can love you forever baby As long as you’re with me when I close my eyes I don’t have to let go but I won’t move and neither will you I’m willing to fight for you, but I’ll never let you know ’cause I’m at peace with superficial connections feeding off the same old … More Heart wide shut

Goodbye

You were a beautiful possibility. You could’ve found a home in me, but the hollowness behind your skin revealed a dark and soulless stare. I never wanted to escape reality when I was with you but you lived in fantasies made of me when the magic was right in front of you. I bet you … More Goodbye

The fall

When the ocean walks away and the waves go silent — when the air remains still and the sun fades in the darkness, I’m pulled away from the shore. The water is growing on me and the wind comes to push away my steps towards earth’s core. I see a wistful smile whirling around me; … More The fall

In your head

What makes you think I’ll leave my life to be by your side? Oh boy, don’t you know? I walked a thousand miles. I lived a thousand lives. Oh boy, I know how to handle pain and this doesn’t compare. You might need me there to hold you when you’re weak But I’m good right here … More In your head

Butterfly Clan

When there was none When the desert’s heat held me, and the wind blew through my bones When life came to me empty-handed, a sign of the time came through Fluttering in the most unexpected places, its colored wings root my feet in the ground. And, as it pushes itself against the wind, my heart … More Butterfly Clan

Undying

Here’s to the glory of dying and the pain of remembrance Death passes by to bring me back to life, to suffer all over again I’ve lived long and insufferable lives and faced every consequence I wandered the world, walked a thousand miles, explored the oceans and swam the deserts Everyone leaves as time passes … More Undying

Dispersed

A scattered mind sits at both ends of a spectrum, looking beyond the colors smeared over the realities of the wounded. It speaks. Minds hear. Hearts don’t listen. Loniless triumphed – a victory for one at the loss of all. Faces remain still, contemplating one’s mind with words empty of meaning, disregarding and belittling. “Shelter me,” … More Dispersed

The end of days

Is it just me or is the world broken enough to die? Behind a lens witnessing the world tear apart, I’m sitting in despair, listening to my throbbing heart. A glass stands between you and me. My screams are caged in sighs. Help! Get me out of here! I want to escape the safety that … More The end of days

What do I care

What do I care if the wind runs wild when the mountains drop and the skies divide What do I care if the seas run scared when the sands dry up and the valleys drain Even our shadows leave us behind when the stars fill out the darkness inside Clouds run heavy, but tears subside … More What do I care

You there

You there, sitting alone What has your mind bestowed upon you tonight? The world goes by, and the tides continue to roar Loneliness humiliates you as you let go of the light Your doubts have grown; your dreams ran their course Did you bring this upon yourself? Heart tainted, mind eroded Where have your faults … More You there

Rusted Hearts

Despite the barriers, despite the armored shells around us, feelings sneak in and spill out, contagious and relentless. Tears dry, hearts change and steel turns to rust. I stand in front of you guarded and armed nevertheless. Your curious eyes follow me as I undress. I’d stay longer if your heart satisfied my tastebuds but … More Rusted Hearts

We met under water

We met underwater on an evening tainted blue and the night was illuminating your soul’s hue. I took a step forward. “Aren’t you afraid of me?” I’m always jumping off edges, I say. I no longer fear the fall ’cause the fire is burning me still. I love love, been covered in red but I … More We met under water

Eyes like honey

Time in and time out, we’ve all been wondering Who’s in and who’s out, we just don’t know Your words are simply extravagating You looked at me as you were speaking and I took the blow ‘Cause your eyes look like honey, I came close and when there was no one between us, I had … More Eyes like honey

Feelings hurt

  Was it wasted time? How do I say I’m fine once you’ve taken mine before you walked away? Did you have to go? Should I have known? We were walking slow before you stopped it there. Maybe I should’ve asked more questions along the way but I was skipping around, naive as always when … More Feelings hurt

Ocean blue

I can’t stop thinking about your lips against mine. I must’ve tasted them in another life. I’m running through scenes with my hands tied … All I do is look away Even in stories, I’ve made up in my mind, you always see right through my disguise. And, I don’t dare to wonder about your … More Ocean blue

Guilty for two

Just so you know, you were the best one. I hope to meet you under another audacious condition, but for now, this heart is gone. People come and go, this is how life is. And I felt loved, with you, and everyone else but you were my favorite temporary feeling. I liked how your skin melted on … More Guilty for two

We used to be

I compromised the truth from eyes that don’t see Now, for as long as I breathe, I won’t be able to live How do I let go of you when my favorite songs begin and end with you? Your scent lingers with the music. Soft to touch, your skin laid delicately next to mine. Our … More We used to be

Reflections

I see a reflection of me in you. You sit across of me, holding on to your cup like it’s the only thing that can hold you up. We don’t speak because we don’t need to. Our blank stares talk to one another. The space between us is brimming with fear. The air is anxious. … More Reflections
