I do not get it

entry picture

I do not get it when they say,

We will not make it one day,

I do not get it, when they laugh,

On us and on our scars

 

I do not get it when they do not believe us,

How crazily can this world suck?

I cannot express the pain in words,

Let’s run because we seem cursed

 

Let’s run away from the chains of pain,

Let’s run away where we can dance in rain,

Let’s run as ...

fri[end]s

We sat on the edge of the bridge
Throwing our cigarettes off of it
We always said that we should quit
Before they kill us
But god knows we'd kill eachother first
We've always been so good with loaded words 

You threw your last smoke off the bridge
And with the fireball whisky you spit
It ignited with flames that you lit
But I fed your fire
And the devil knows the mistakes you made
He ...

beautiful disaster.

A volcano
Aching to reach the skies
Tries and tries
Spits ash into the air that's always blown away
A mountain
Full of fire
The heat of a thousand suns stirs within
But no one could ever see through the smoke he creates -
Conflate
How every magician disappears
Smoke & mirrors
But when he explodes
Take cover
He will burn you to the ground

A hurricane
Twists and turns
The world upsid...

Another Train Song

entry picture

Standing on the platform, waving goodbye to yesterday’s train.
Perhaps you wanted to feel you had a little bit of control.
You’re saying you hope that train never comes back again.

 A peripatetic pretense helps to ease the pain.
It’s a phantom journey, but no one has to know.
Standing on the platform, waving goodbye to yesterday’s train.


You collected yourself, stood erect, and hoped to appear sane.

I'm in the gap

I think I hung myself in your tears

Yeah, the other day I realised

One noose, one tear drop - same shape.

I choked on the salt of it

eternally thirsty now

When they fell from your eyes

they looked like showers of broken glass

How I wished I could have swallowed that instead

I think that would hurt less

I’ve got 6 bruises, 7 cuts, 3 scars

I’m still counting.

But why...

Stretching

I stretch

I stretch some more

sprawling over my bed

caressing the cold sheets beside me

 

A weight sits on my chest.

The pang of my solitude,

visiting me in the silent hours of the morning

 

I bring your blanket closer to my chest,

Sucking in your smell,

Breathing the pores of you.

 

It’s started to fade now.

The staleness and the dust has set in.

Time ...

Few Could Wake Before a Raging Current

Walking to the high mountains on a side,
I am perplexed before the raging current,
I don't know where to turn or run.

The truth is that I wander the sides of a street uninhabited by man,
The pavement overflowing with failure and sadness.

Take a look over the edge,
Take a look into the abyss of this world,
So stale the crumbs of rotten food.

The way the leaves whistle the call of a mo...

remembering love

I still remember the first time we made love,

It was simple and easy, with your weight above.

I remember expecting pain and feeling none,

I remember biting my lip when we were done.

It was so long ago, half a decade gone by,

But it still keeps me warm when you're not by my side.

Perhaps it's wrong I know I ought to move on,

But how do you stop an oncoming storm.

I still wis...

hollow inside

Always I think of you,

I don't know why I do.

It opens doors I cannot close,

I feel adrift in the chaos.

Each time I look inside of me,

Searching for something to hold to my heart.

A memory of pain or fight or slight,

So I can say it's good we're apart.

 I find nothing, there is nothing to find

You were good to me, you treated me right.

I'm lost and lonely I now need ...

WORDS

Where were the words

why couldn't we talk

So much I wanted to say 

but the words got caught in my throat

---

Why did the magnet push us apart

when there were words to say

---

Could it be different at a different time

was it just the timing

I don't know

---

So awkward 

So off beat

---

We couldn't get the timing 

of the dance

Yet the magnet d...

Not so gentle reminders

What am I supposed to say? Goodbye?

Goodbye.

That didn't work.

I'll try,

Try again. Bye.

It's fine. I'm fine. I'm alive.

I'm dying.

Dying, flying back

To the tracks

The click clack

The roar of the black

Train gliding by so fast

It lasts

Only as long as the last

Car to pass 

And brings terrible silence

Into the night.

The Empty Stage

And the lights go dim

That's the end of the show

And the audience leaves

And the actors go home

And there's nobody watching

And there's no one but you

And you sit on the stage

And recite what you knew.

But the lines mean nothing

And the poses the same

And the curtain has closed

And the props put away

And Broadway sits empty 

And so does your soul

It's just...

Chaining smoking til my lungs are done, Chest pain come not sure if I can make it Trying to take this path to the dream I envisioned, Can't make the right decision I bailed now my life is in shambles I'm out here in socal dreaming of the bay, Looking for a way to construct these abstract thoughts, Onto the pad wanting it bad but finding it hard to make the ink spill, Attempting to leav...

BreakupPain

Dear Facebook

A little poem that is very much not in my usual style!
 

Dear Facebook,

 We have known each other a long time now,
 and whilst I know you will always be there for me,
 it is with a heavy heart that I must tell you the following:
 We can no longer be together.

 It’s not you.
 It’s me.
 Honestly.

 I find I can’t keep away from you,
 and I have so much work to do these days...

The Falling Down

The Falling Down

The knives and forks
are crossed on the plates
in the kitchen,

two used cups sit
quietly on the coffee table
by the sofa,

the pots and pans
we used last night swim
in a pool of cold water.

It’s mid-afternoon,
the rain lashes
at the windows,
and outside the birch
tree swings w...
