As she floated through the air
She looked down on all she loved as if she didnt have a care
Death betrayal and pain
All emotions that drove her insane
Her legacy she wants to instill in all to be better than most
Now she is her own worse ghost
You see she always did the opposite of all she said
To her but not most her most valued  accomplishment  is that she is dead
She was jugde by all as she tried to stand her grounds and be true to the morals she set
As there stare grew bolder and there words direct and hateful she felt death was her only bet
So she closed her eyes took the blade and stabbed herself in the chest
Praying that god knew her heart best
As the blood oozes from her white shirt all she feel is relief 
And now that shes gone she leaves thoses she loved with her beliefs
Everyday she graced this earth with her present she was haunted by her memories that was drowing her in a sea of tear
Her biggest regret is not that she lived but that she lived her life in fear 
As her body was lifed to the ceiling the darkness that once ironically consumesd her was replace with a light
And as she moved closer to the light it became so bright
There was a voice that she had heard many times beore
Telling her this wasn't the end and choose the other door
She heard the message loud and clear and vowed to do right 
And even on her darkest day she remain true to the light 
Because on that faithful day she died she really literary died however was born again
Not to live a life of hell but to do her best and at the end of her road know that when darkness and despair set in  she will always win

what sleeps in the forest beside the highway?
what lays its small head on dismembered takeout boxes and curls up beneath plastic bags emblazoned with ‘thankyouthankyouthankyou’?

does it give thanks for small polyurethane luxuries?
for the refuse it calls its refuge?

what feeds on the grease and fumes from the roaring mechanical parade? 
does it lick its lips afterwards?

what learns to cross the glimmering cement - first timidly, then wanton and triumphant after practice?

what watches?

what does it notice?

what emerges from the forest beside the highway, large and lumbering, to repay the generosity of its benefactors in kind?

“Don’t let me down”, now that’s a foolish way of thinking 
Response of confirmation, actions not in agreement 
Not very much Redeeming 
Like Pandora’s box you’re seeming

Like bullets to the chest, I’m barely breathing
Confused and in distress, was I deceived? and
Was I deceiving?

Were you mistaken by my distance and a lack of trust was formed

Or was my token of your trust misplaced in your corrupted life form?

Are you a demon?

But you weren’t demeaning.

You boost me up, 
Above the ceiling was my love

Like, not love, allow me to clarify
Was different, real connection
But anything more than that I inform you, I deny

And now I cry

Mine, your were not but all of you was with me
Or maybe me with you, that’s where I get confused
Mistaken thinking

Time, as more comes, you will fade
At least that what my research say
But I swear to god, my image of you gets imprinted on me more and more as I survive the day

Leave me alone
I don’t want you here to stay

Memories in my bone 
Fractured when I lay 

Fractured when I wake

Fractured me in my waist

Oh what a waste

A waste of my fight when all I care to take is flight
All I care is me and you changed that habit
Is that what lies are like?
Is the purpose damage?

If so you succeed because I’m more than done
I’ve lost my sun
Although it’s reflection on the moon is a pretty replica
You set me up
Trojan horse 
You lift me up
And when things got good you sat me down
Let me frown
Although I hide, that feelings sound
That feelings loud
Those thoughts clear 
These eyes hold tears
Those drops aren’t mild
Neither were my fears

So clear Ill steer for now
Others won’t be allowed
My voice won’t speak aloud
Not truth nor words of deep
Only traps for the weak, ones I couldn’t put out
They were from your slope
Your dope became my cloud
I guess it’s, both, hello and goodbye for now.

If only I knew before, how much you’d let me down.

Everything around 
is spinning
My head
can't focus.
My body is tired
and my mind is crying.

But I am still smiling 
because I know 
time will change
and the silence in my heart 
keeping focus
for a better day.

Trees of lime,
Dreams of life,
Hearts pleading:
Fields of rice,
Ears of a beast,
Bright green, to the eyes.

What is fleeting?
What is right?
What the audience likes,
What God would decide,
Like what is meat, What is me,
But I need to survive.

Oh, to forget,
Castle, all, 
buttered pears.
But what of man?
Was he even there?
Even one percent,
I wish I could share.

All art forms a certain length,
All on loan, and suddenly end,
A dozen eggs, A dozen days, 
No son, No in love again,
Arms too short to hug oneself.

I feel as if I double dealt,
You tell me what face I have,
Where I belong,
That you've already won;
Wet seasons among, many drugs,
I regret: I've already punched.
Call me a spade, 
But I do what I want,
And I won.

Speaking kin and fawns,
King et al;
Kings that become pawns,
Lose their powers,
Were they a King at all?

Kicking the twigs, rocks,
Speaking ill or not,
Letters and flowers,
Red like the Pinot Noir.

The time has come to pass.
The hours sound the chime.
How do you write such pleasing words
that our time has come to rhyme?

The smiles that show your heart.
The eyes that calm the sea.
How do you find the time to love
all of the things that rhyme with me?

And just like me your bird is free
to spread your wings and learn to fly.
What is the cause that makes you flee
each time that life comes passing by?

We are just a plan that life is making.
The first romance that’s ours to share.
The time has come to rhyme what matters,
within the heart that bleeds despair.

Come to me now and follow my dreams
that uncover the pieces born of the past.
The time has come near to make a new change,
and untether the slave you have held in your grasp.

With each moment I write I am thinking of you.
And every word that I rhyme you are near.
It is my hope to rekindle a time we once knew,
before the heart of true love disappears.

Stay? but why here,
Even statements to fear,
So take my leave.

Same ideals,
Replaced by grief,
Pale, like me
Frail, like me,
Failing, like me,
A hasty viking,
Eyes stained like tea.

What becomes of me,
Broadcast of the screen,
Shopping once a week?
A simple machine:
Dirty,
Dirt in its seams,
Dirt in its dreams,
First on the beach,
Understanding the piece.

Should one be horrified of nothing?
Hook, shore, line, cheeks blushing,
Sorry I lack a lively career,
Goodbye, deary;
My life is lovely.

They say no rush,
Speak nothing of time and boxes;
Wishing they were ski jumping,
Even if it begets evil things.

One hundred years fishing.
Whether or not I am punished,
God, brother, life, iron will,
I watched the flowers flourish.
Like drumsticks desire a skin,
Find, then are tossed aside:
Tomorrow is unprovided,
Yet I will.

Bullet for bunting.

What's in the word,
That the mouth fit not say.
I wield my ink, bleeding words like fire.
Fighting to shave off the frailty you plunged on me.

You used to be unique, very ineffable.
Never knew I was being deluded by wishful thinking.
I fought your fight, abate your fears.
Rather than return a thousand thanks, you fired me with a cacophony of bullets.

You inhaled the oxygen of my love,
While I search in perusal for answers.
Your words, monotonous, left me in a muddled state. 
Like a bullet for bunting, I never saw it coming.

my god i’m so lonely
so i set my small salt lamp
on the edge of the window
on the tiny wooden ledge

i turn the dial clockwise
and the light burns in my
eyes
sending a message to the dog across the street

the only one who might be able to understand my mess of  signals, signs indistinguishable from the clothes heaped on my floor

nobody, nobody nobody nobody 
nobody, oh, nobody nobody

somebody, anybody, nobody, again.

Fresh lemon,
Rush of adrenaline,
Lime.
Time for nachos,
No black olives on mine.
Salt, Salsa,
Sour cream on the side,
Cheese in abundance,
Swine.

Bring me your all
Paint me a picture of your dreams
Nourish me with a meal made to awaken my tongue from a tasteless slumber
Play me a song so pure and accurate
Sway with me in your arms
Your touch synchronizes my heart with the rhythm of nature

Bring me your all
Read me stories that once showed you the way
Light my path and enlighten my mind
Rearrange my understanding of importance 
Scold my naivete
The power of your emotions ignite my sense of wonder

Bring me your all
Show me your pain with the intensity of your voice
Present me with conflict 
Show me your anger, Show me your disappointment 
Give me your broken heart
Strike me with fists of passion. Angry passion. 
I will not cower behind my masculinity. 
I welcome your release.
Your pain will become ours and together we will Stand. 

Bring me your all
Show me your scars where you learned to bleed.
Rather, where you learned your resilience.
Rise up and fight for whats right
Teach me my voice makes a sound.
BRING ME YOUR ALL

Be selective,
He professes,
In a legal setting,
Weak, pathetic,
The rich and famous,
Who knows these things?

Like beetles wrestling, 
Where is a decent ending,
By either spelling,
Life only glass compelling.

It is far better to dry the ocean
and be at the bottom of the sandy sea
than it is to rage against the tides

hopeless, yet aimless, waiting for solace
you fight, you splash, you scream
only to be treading water for hours

while you could have gotten a towel
and then started drying the waters
taking a while. But as the level lowers,

and as you realize you're drowning either way,
it was far better to aim for the sand
that it would have been to rage against the tide

Of doubt, other mouths,
A beautiful house,
External grounds,
A pattern of sounds.
Steps: Drum sets, 
Words abound their flesh,
Head in the clouds.

Lady Luck please don't let me down,
I got three more months till I leave this desert town
Here I sit up on my post keepin the wolves at bay
They may think their top dog here, but now they are my prey.
Lady Luck please don't let me down,
You've got me this far, two months till I leave this ol shantytown 
Here I walk on the prowl for snakes down before me.
With each step I take I clear the ground behind me.
Lady Luck please don't let me down,
Just one more month til I see my ol home town.
Here now I fly high so I can look for danger up ahead.
My badge of courage now soaked red,
Lady Luck why'd you let me down,
Now I lay six feet underground.
