Fallacy

Fallacy

An eloquent visage placed upon a pedestal of mosaic stones, 

Creamy white snow shimmering, 

Glistening freshly cut phernomes sit eloquently upon your chest. 

"They will die!," you say. 

"They will die!," you say. 

Erogenous plains outline your temporal landscapes,

An infinite glaze of still-life sunflowers,

Procreating infants breadth, 

Hypnotizing Adriatic oils,

Warm Nights Behind the Orange Grove

Warm nights behind the orange grove,

We found each other between the rows,

And felt the cool ground in our throes,

Lost ourselves—lost our clothes,

Told secrets only moonlight knows,

Basked in silent afterglows,

Then promised never to let go,

Those nights behind the orange grove.

"I want to eat your cancer" - Nirvana

Inspired by Nirvana's song 'heart-shaped box'. The line "I want to eat your cancer" was so strong and powerful, really got me thinking

 

I want to eat your cancer,

Sip your darkness, your evils,

Drink from your chalice of disease,

Soak up your pain, bathe in it, wash in it...

So that you are dry.

And when you are too dry;

Powdery, breaking, crumbling,

Ill offer you a dri...

Just fifteen

Loading the player…

He is somewhere beneath the ground now,

Somewhere beneath my feet

Alone, cold, stiff, lifeless, dead

Just fifteen

Caked in dirt, encrusted by mud,

cushioned by maggots, no thoughts in his head

Just fifteen

And he will not think again, he will not talk again

Or open his eyes or see again

I will not see him

See his face animate,

his lips break into a smile or his fac...

Run With Me

 

I still cant find you, looking around and you're not here. 

You're lost in this word, and Im here on my knees. 

Trying to get where I need to be, So that I'll be there when you find me. 

But until that time, I'll sit and wait, and hope tomorrow brings a brand new day. 

And maybe then, I'll get the chance, to look around and hold your hand. 

To see your face, to make you glad.

Remember last night's tea

when you brought your girlfriend,

and you brought your friend?

And the dog was excited

because he loves it when you are all here

because I am so happy

and I'm like- superwomb?

And I got food delivered

and you were all relieved

because it can be touch and go

and there was loads to go around

You,

Can make me a puppet.

You can make me dance

And moan

And shake

And cum literally at the tip of your finger

You make my entire body move with your finger

(and your eyes)

You can make me feel my matter condensing to a single point at the tip of your finger,

I imagine it is glowing.

And sometimes when you’re making love to me

Locked behind Xanax bars; trapped between the ocean and stars 

I lie

To rot away the life I have been given; to choose a life of opposition

For Unless one happened to stumble upon a key; I couldn't be, I know not what she
believes, only that through the drugs she sees 

Through storms we sailed, across the ocean without fail, with glowing eyes that impale she is sure to turn heaven from hell

I knew from the very first moment -

what I knew, I didn't really know in the moment

but a part of me just knew

and I knew he knew too.

Every part of my broken heart and aching body

seemed to scream it; 

the words breaking through my skin - 

dying to be heard.

But I was so afraid and he was so damaged

No one could know.

No one ever knew.

Not even him;

The Road We Travel

Once i heard tell of a road in the west

one that runs for many miles.
its full of twists,
of holes,
of hills.
Of sadness and of smiles.

a road that will challenge you,
that will kill you if you falter.
a road of love and loss,
and of branches that always alter.

this road is unending tranquility,
this road is unyelding strife.

in the west it has a name.
this road its name is li...

If you were the goddess reigning over us all

I would desperately, pathetically, devotedly

Drink the air you pumped into our atmosphere

I would dive in streams and love the trees

In an attempt to taste your essence.

In a thousand years I would wage wars in your name

Irrationally and unproductively

Because that’s not what you would ask

And it would not elevate me in your eyes...

What I'd Do For You

Give you a thousand roses and a thousand violins
A thousand manned choir to sing you a thousand hymns
Light up a thousand stars in the image of your face
Give me a thousand wishes and I'd wish most of the same
Nine hundred ninety-nine wishes, I'd wish for one more day
To spend with you, then change my wish when my last wish came
On the thousandth wish, I'd wish for a thousand more

Love Isn't

 

Love isn’t some little thing that goes ding!

It isn’t a song that you can sing.

It’s not something that might happen in a flash,

It doesn’t happen while driving and cause you to crash.

 

Love isn’t something tangible, something you can see,

It's pretty much invisible, to both you and to me.

It’s something that will join us and hold us together,

It’s a feeling that will...

I've seen it, dreamed it, and thought of it, but never felt it.

entry picture

I've seen it in movies. I've seen it in life. I see it all the time. I've seen all the ups and downs that comes with it. I've seen the way how it can make someone so sad or happy in a split of a second. I've seen the colors of it; bright and dark. I've seen it, dreamed it, and thought of it, but never felt it.......................... I am a loveless lost soul just waiting to be loved.

There once was a man that said
he"d loved all his children no matter what.
And if that's so and if we choose to believe it
then why can't we accept they way others love
if he can?

Because quite frankly
everyone deserve to be loved.
And when being loved or loving one
it shouldn't matter about the fact
that a guy likes another guy
or the fact that a women
likes another women

Life's Lost Sense of Direction

Walking through  lost lucid sense of direction

Feelings seem sporadically stagnant at times

Wishing and hopeful, line of less looseness

Mucky muddle misses points momentarily   

Researching rational reasons for ridiculousness

Searching for some sort of sense of serenity   

Serenity sets sometimes but for some reasons so unclear

Drowning in You

I am torn between what I want and what I need. The sensible part of me urges me to let you go. But the other part of me begs me to let you stay. A constant conflict inside me, trying to break free. The hardest part is not knowing. I’m heartless and loveless but you bring me to my knees. I’m weak in your embrace and you conquer me. I’ve spent much time building up the walls around my heart.

Final Masterpiece

She was a painter and he was a performer. Both artists molded with talent but divided by passion. Nonetheless they connected emotionally and spiritually. Her canvas illustrated bright myriads of color and abstract scenes of memories and mental photographs. He sang with an emptiness of blues and love ballads intertwined with lost hopes and faded dreams. Empty acrylic paint tubes and coffee stained ...

Thats Love

A feeling unknown surrounds my aching bones,

 

A feeling felt before but on a totally different course,

 

A good, bad, happy, sad, feeling of confusion,

 

An autopsy needed to look at my heart before these feelings stop,

 

All this makes no since and writing it out in inconvenient,

 

As I try to separate words from feeling I end up lost,

With You....

I'd always sat alone.
And always thought to myself.
I'd never said a word.
And I'd never been outspoken
until you came and until we became as one.

Because with you, I am happy.
With you, nothing else matters.
With you, I feel accepted.
With you, I feel a part of something
and with you, I am myself
Not no one else.

But, without you,
I am everything but happy.
Without you, somehow that ...

My poor dear brother,
I don't know you
and you don't know me.

Your name is Robert.

You were born on march 4th,

You are three years older,
and i am three years younger.

But, my poor dear brother,
Although we don't know much
bout each other, I somehow still feel close to you
and I know that someday we'll meet again.

You took my heart
and held it your arms.

You took my heart

You took my heart

You took my heart
and showed me how to love,
and how it feels to be loved,
but just like that
you tore my heart into pieces.

You took my once empty heart
and filled it love.
Then in a blink of an eye
you destroyed it.

Your Meaningless Love

If I asked you if you loved me
would you mean every word you spoke.
If I asked you if you thought of me
- your distant child-
would I find that special moment
when you thought of me so dearly.

But if you ask me if I loved you
there wouldn't be any words
that could express my feelings
I have towards you, just silence in reply.
And if you asked me if I thought of you,
you would see tears ...

Subconscious

I awoke with the lingering vibrations of un-human dreams.

You were the first and only thing I thought of

I know that's special, because after diving into the depth of my spirituality

I don't think of anything human.

As if my brain is hazed 

Preserving itself for the great

Nothing penetrates

Mania

I stare at your back, as if a portrait

hung to study. 
 
Bare, I stroke it where it is open as
 
you snore.
 
Touch freckles and moles with stealth. There,
 
I shut my eyes when you wake and sneeze,
 
I open them again when you fall back to sleep,
 
Watch as your lips gather the white
 
sticky dregs of the night,
 
I wish I could taste it.

Music

To love music is to know how it feels to love another,
The same swell of your heart, the same touch upon your soul,
That magical, almost painful feeling of being about to burst!
Music gets me giddy and high, like daisy-strewn hippies in the grass,
And helps me see beyond the walls of my own life, to the rainbows of the cosmos
It feeds my hunger and quenches my aching thirst.

Together

I grip the blade,

I can't cut,

I handle the rope,

Unable to tie the knot.

 

I had a bottle of pills;

Poured them down the drain,

I lost the suns warmth,;

Waited in the rain.

 

A thought of your essence,

I swiftly hold back,

Every weappn of mine,

As the force slowly lacks.

 

Letting my sadness roam,

But not a thought roamed,

'Cause you're fighting,

The Faol's Tale of Forsaken Love

Leader of his own pack,

A high slope, only to his lonesome self,

Lost connection toward the skys tired eyes,

Ears tucked in deepening sulk.

 

He'd given up on prey's prayful ease,

Wrapped in dolefuls constructed salute,

As if every pelt surrounded him in scorn,

Soon forgotten travail, a yelp inflicted his oiled mood.

 

Cascading into his perception, he had seen a limb...

Frozen sighs shadow thick,

Fire heaving through the giants teeth,

Her silk dress gliding gently, serene,

Eyes beating like drums on Winter Eve.

Caressing her sea of particles,

Eliminating the smudges wept across her jaw,

For her eyes spilled a thousand written articles.

"Beauty, beauty is within and without,"

He articulates, palm leveling her ...

Pinch the rogue flesh slipping from my jeans,
Dig each thumb and forefinger into my hand,
Scratch me with that caress and turn when I blush,
Let the fire wash over my face whilst pretending not to realise.

Leave me be even though our legs are intertwined,
Please leave me be even though our mouths talk and share,

Living the Eternity

You walk
You stand
You speak
Then you are quiet
You love
You hate
You fight
You make peace
You cry
You laugh
You live
You die
And you live again

You inhale so many lifetimes,
Your home is the universe,
Your time is eternity.

Words you speak are never silent,
Deeds of yours are never unseen,
Steps you take never fade,
Emotions you share always felt.

Fall

The leaves fall

Tumbling to the ground

Each branch of the tree

Getting bare and brittle

Some leaves fall straight down

Some leaves get carried by the wind

I sit and watch

Each leaf on an adventure

Some broken

Some cracked

Some gone from view

Each one leaving a memory

On the big tree

That is now nude

And pure

My heart was once pure

And covered in a ge...

Significance of the Nineteenth Autumn

entry picture

As the nineteenth autumn has come upon me,
It’s a whole new world I see.
Treacherous creatures, so often, hush and hide,
And it seemeth to me, a change in tide.

The poetry of soothing sensation has gone,
The glimmering golden glow of the sun is now none.
Some say,’ The Head is battling with the Heart’.
Well ! All Logic has been torn apart.

As I gaze into the vast emptiness
The dawning...

To the land of Ever-was,

Prince Charming  a soul meant to roam my heart,
 
A deadly man with a poisoned dart,

Or watched her go about her day, 

In a pleasant kind of way,

And realize that you are happy too,

Just because she laughs with you.

 

And know that if she were to ask,

You would accept her any task,

And do it with unblinking speed,

If only it was you she’d need.

I know I say things that make your jaw drop

Then I'll flash you a smile that'll make your heart stop

I'll get under your skin just because I know I can
