Conflict of Interest

entry picture

Grievances endured at the barrels of my heart,

Eroded the barriers masking the forbidden thoughts:

I dreamt of longevity, the feeling of being secure,

It was a plan, and plans inevitably become obscured,

My dream of this future became a catalyst to my motivation,

You were well aware, as it was always kept transparent,

But you harbored your guilt and let me use my motivation to su...

Heartache

entry picture

Alas, the heart with color deprivation,

It beats black and blue; to the different hues,

Internally on its own eternal demise,

In search of the hidden truth instilled in every white lie,

Consciously following it to a troubled ending,

Your ambiguous ways have left me feeling astray,

The hidden truth is just a culmination of my feeble hopes,

The hopes that have been abandoned out...

Rekindled

entry picture

I don’t know what our future holds,

But you feel like the home I’ve never known,

The journey may seem like an undesirable mystery,

And I can tell that you’re so direly missing me,

Missing me like I’ve been missing you,

Only the words are overlooked and never said,

The feeling becomes implied like silence in the blue sky,

I hear it, I can feel it in your soft voice,

It’s as ...

the last note

entry picture

the conversations start later in the morning, they end earlier at night, the content has become boring, the only spark comes from fights, the respect has gone out the windowpane, there’s no more “please” and “thank you”, I can tell you don’t feel the same, it’s become that way for me too, you tell me that I care too much, that I only focus on the little stuff, there’s no longer lust in your touch,...

easy for you

entry picture

don’t dwell on the negative

easy for you to say

 

when the ones you love always love you back

you have all the freedom I yearn for

you’re talents are limitless

happiness revolves very close to you

you sleep so soundly

the center of everyone’s world

always cared for and supported

 

stop being so negative all the time 

easy for you to say

 

how would you han...

lost cause

entry picture

you got used to it

you realized I’m here to stay

we grew

only to then decay

 

our garden was once full

I planted the seeds

while you watered 

but here I am now, doing both

 

too absent minded 

or too selfish

to solve the misery 

I walk with

 

you know what it is

it was never a secret

I was told to deal with it

but this is not compromise

Outsider

entry picture

The room is filled,

Corner to corner,

Some faces look mildly familiar,

While others look like complete strangers

They all speak with open hearts,

Exchanging greetings and memories,

For as many people in the room,

There is just as much conversation,

Each anxious with their own story to tell,

Only I couldn’t understand,

They all spoke in our native language,

A langua...

red roses

entry picture

Overwhelmed,

It was hard to focus,

I ended up in the kitchen,

Searching and grabbing,

I wish it didn’t have to go this way,

Things could’ve been different,

It went south so suddenly,

I know no other solution,

I lay in a puddle,

Wait, when did this form?

Oh well, these clothes were half decent anyways,

Maybe the red stains represent roses,

Your favorite flower,

Out of my Grasp

entry picture

Traveling like the wind,

We flew higher than the kites,

I had trouble seeing you at times,

The sun blinded me like love,

I’d only see you periodically,

Jumping from cloud to cloud,

Aren’t you proud of me?

Didn’t you notice my persistence?

You saw our love and you flipped it,

Turning the tables back to realistic,

I’ll be here in the sky;

When you realize you miss it...

A Trip

entry picture

It is beyond me,

What a surprising sensation,

All my senses are heightened,

The world looks too beautiful to see,

Everything has become an instant distraction,

I lose focus on my tension,

Instead my focus shifts to nature’s artifacts,

The trees dance in synchronization,

The grass glows the brightest of greens,

The water ripples and pops naturally, but different than anyt...

One of many

entry picture

You are different from the rest,

The unique qualities you possess,

 

You love like no other,

Reflecting that of a mother,

 

You care for me like a nurse,

For better or for worse,

 

You walk like a queen,

Intimidating but never mean,

 

You talk like a philosopher,

Relating to the ones that suffer,

 

You are open like a book,

Always gave and never took...

submerge

entry picture

It eats away at my confidence,

I no longer feel the same way,

Not about you, but about myself,

The lack of passion and interest you show,

Are all the more reasons for me to feel low,

Where it all went; I wonder,

It must’ve got stuck;

through the up and the under,

Is it patiently waiting to be saved,

Or is it a dead flower waiting to decay?

Bitter World

entry picture

Radiantly glowing,

Like in July: it snowing,

A hopeless romance,

I stood no chance,

 

How stubborn I was,

To think it was just us, 

A couple we could never be,

So little you thought of me,

 

Your choice was evident,

I soon became irrelevant,
I loved you like no man could,

It was something I never understood,

 

All the troubles that I was faced with,

Ma...

a friend no more

entry picture

I do not recommend,

Falling in love with a friend,

It is a one way road,

So lonely and cold,

 

High hopes will only disappoint,

People will change like a flip of a coin,

Losing is always inevitable,

But how could I pass on a girl so incredible,

 

Fear that I will never find another like you,

So sincere and so true,

But maybe it is not you who I should look for,

...

Junk Mail

entry picture

Yes, I am bitter.

Yes, I am jealous.

Yes, I am insecure.

Yes, it hurts to watch.

Yes, I am not the victim. 

Yes, you are free to choose.

Yes, I may not be your first choice.

Yes, my best is still not good enough.

Yes, I cannot accept your rejection today.

Yes, I won’t be able to accept it tomorrow either.

Yes, I apologize, I am a burden to you because I am weak,

Muse

entry picture

I believe everything you say,

Yet at the same time I don’t,

But who are you to blame,

It’s hard to fix what’s broke,

 

‘Til the end I’ll stay by your side,

In time the grey skies will turn blue, 

And when the ocean changes it’s tides,

I hope your intentions are still true,

 

You’re there when I need,

When I am lost in despair,

I follow as you lead me,

Out of ...

Disarrayed

entry picture

I hate that I love,

I hate that I need it not want it,

I crave it like no other,

It has left me dysfunctional,

Anxiety attacks and mental breakdowns haunt me,

They wait for my lowest of times to take advantage,

They never love just one,

There’s always another waiting,

And it’s never me that wins,

But I shouldn’t have to compete,

When I give my heart I give it whole,

Lonesome

entry picture

When your with me,

Do you think of him?

When you say you love me,

Are you even talking to me?

I fear that you’re talking through me,

I can see you drifting off in your thoughts,

I watch you stray away from shore,

Did you even plan to say goodbye,

Do I even cross your mind,

Or is it only in convenience,

If he wasn’t so far away you’d run away so quick,

That is the t...

Ignorance is Not Bliss

entry picture

It kills me softly,

NO. It kills me with no mercy,

What did I expect to happen?

It is not like there could ever be a happy ending,

But it isn’t over,

My foolish self will still hang and suffer,

I weigh the reward greater than the risk,

Ignoring the fact that the risk kills me before I can get the reward,

There will be no happy ending,

Life is not a fairytale,

I just w...

Prisoner of the Mind

entry picture

thoughts INTRUSIVE,

                                     ALONE with my mind,

sleep is for the WEAK,

                   but I’m weak WITHOUT my sleep,

the demons HAUNT me,

                        I fear I have LOST my control,

the EVILS have tainted my soul,

                                   is there an END to this,

only the end will fabricate a new

BEGINNING.

Love & Cigs

entry picture

The smell of fresh smoke lingers,

Dry cigarette ashes lay on my fingers,

It is not home, where I want to be,

It is only where the sun shines, that I can see,

 

As enchanting as our love may seem,

You could never be with someone who’s only freedom is just a dream,

No matter the endless effort I could promise to give,

I could never be your Prince Charming with where I live,

Clipped Wings

entry picture

I ache to live a life free from restrain,

Being born into a shell has kept me safe but in pain,

Physically I am okay, but mentally I am at war,

With the little that I have, should it hurt to want more?

Touch

entry picture

 

When the fire is as compelling as when it had just begun,

We start to imitate the sky surrounding the golden sun,
As touch becomes more than just a trivial sensation,

We reach for each other in sudden desperation,

 

It’s a rooted feeling of love and lust,

A connection built upon fragmented trust,

With just enough of it to keep you going,

And enough of it to keep you grow...

Bitter-Sweet

entry picture

She is a never-ending story,

A tale of fantasies and glories,

The power to seduce your mind and body at will,

For a moment not, will your heart stand still,

 

She is sunshine and the stars,

Makes you feel like home is not too far,

An exotic flower with undeniable splendor,

Which blooms in a shower of love and care so tender,

 

She is to be held close through day and n...

Three

entry picture

Carelessly I follow you to no ends,

An angel heaven-sent,

Knowing you have yet to look back at me,

Afraid you would look right past me,

But you are too busy chasing your desire,

A desire I cannot, could not accept.

 

So I run in negligence,

For as long as I cannot see what is infront of you,

I may continue my fantasy,

A future with you I planned to see,

Continue dr...

Change

entry picture

Our relationship morphed like a sculpture,

Could it ever be what it once was?

With all it’s scars and uneven shapes,

Should I be glad it may never be;

how it once was?

When love got replaced by hate,

Choice replaced by fate,

Who did we seek in each other?

Was it the truth,

or the safety of belief?

Jaded

entry picture

Will she love thy again,

Or will I squander as I sin,

For I am no good,

But neither is thee,

Yet I bear unbound love,

Whom to no other can compare,

Remnants of broken hearts shattered like glass,

On the floor which I walk,

With hardly a complaint,

Staring out the clouded windows,

Filled with jaded thoughts,

For I cannot see straight,

The burden beared hinders me...
