Carefully

Separated out as if your dreams were just the limbsOf every tree you never plantedAll the dreams that you recanted...Until the sound of saying "this is what I always wanted" is a song that you replay before the static all begins Holding up your candle made of ashes in a trayFor all the wishes never … Continue reading Carefully

Appease

I've chosen to acceptOr maybe chosen not to weepFor all the misbegotten lullabies and dreams forever sweptBeyond the momentary purchase that my hands could never keep I'm letting go of thingsOr just the ones that let me goBecause I move so imprecisely when they tighten up the stringsAround the hinges of my happiness which always … Continue reading Appease

Please

Please don't let me wander where the roads that I avoided ever sprawlWhere, behind the thickets, lie the secrets that I keepAnd only words remain as any proof that I can weepWhere just so many patterns rest in humble disarrayBut these are mine, it's what I have, and I would love to lose them all … Continue reading Please

Disconnect

How do I followOr hope to respectWhat was worthy in meOr was lacking in theeWhen the optional feelingsWere met the ceilingsOf wanting your warmest neglect? What does it matterAnd what did it notWhen I promised the worldAs my own was unfurledBy your carrion passionYour flare and your fashionAnd everything else I forgot How do I … Continue reading Disconnect

I rearrange my circuits into something like a heartBut all it seems to ever get is, "it's a start..."So soldering more wiresWhile the joy in me expires...I try a new configuration - tear it all apartAnd I'm rewarded with, "it makes for pleasant art" I layer on some lacquer and I try to dye it … Continue reading Feel

If all the weary passengers I'm seeingWere really ever passengers to places I could goI wonder if they'd see me as a person merely fleeingFrom the places they were headingOr the ones they're merely dreadingOr to "trust me, when you see it, you'll know" In truth, it's been a while since a personWas passing any … Continue reading All

Math

I quietly stood as the wind rattled inAnd I turned very littleFor what was a breeze When the sky hasn't fallen or yet to beginA decent knowing it'll Just shift in degreesAnd when standing the way I've been standing I can't say the wind has affected the path With every new whispering, trivial soundWhether given … Continue reading Math

Friend

I twisted my apologiesAnd sacred ideologiesUntil the parts I needed most were trueI filled my heart with fusesJust to decorate the bruisesKnowing not why what I choose isAlways differentNever differentSomewhere in between cerulean and blue Where all of the apologiesWere pages from theologiesThe sun had bleached to bone before they bledWhere letters are as flowersPetals … Continue reading Friend

Cutter

Arbitrary landscapes in a flutter 'round the cellarAre they moving interstellarBeing fortune and the tellerNot the sold and not the seller of the all consuming clutter Piling in monuments of other minor momentsWhere we measure in componentsBeing growth and how we've grown itInto fountains full of foment fit to fade like just another Trivial pursuit … Continue reading Cutter
