Philipos on Summer (1 day ago)

Mosaic

~A fractured mosaic staring back at me

Shades of blue, brown, yellow, gray and green

Are the stitching that weave this being together

A fabrication of vibrant parts synthesizing to make a real whole

The real me~

self love

LLJ

~The melodies of your tortured soul sent reverberating echos through the ethos  

Desperate cries intertwined in tunes unheard of 

Your cadences resonated with the frequencies of my essense

In perfrect harmony

Setting my ailing heart at ease over and again

As I gnash my teeth with bloody emotions

As I rage against the ultimate injustice

I hope you find rest in perfect harmony

death

When will I see you again?

~When will I see you again?

Time keeps ticking, each second feeling like a solitary eternity

But do you know I've been waiting for entire lifetimes? 

Do you wait for me too?

I replay the recollections of time spent together over and over in my head

Like a broken record

I long for the days when my head would find comfort on your shoulders

When my hands would find your thighs

Love not quite requited

Love Letter to a Stranger

~You're the feeling that makes my heart melt into a caramel abyss

I fall for these stories
The fabrications that knit the fabric of my life
It's the stories behind the gazes that cut the deepest
Everyday I fight through plastic razor blades
But I don't think I'm strong enough~

social anxiety

Invisible

~I'm the thin layer of ice that forms on paved surfaces
A slippery slope that can lead to ones demise if ignored
But you ignore me anyway, because I'm seemingly harmless
I don't think the camouflage I wear every waking day helps
It's a proactive measure I guess
You see right through me
Like I'm made of glass
I'm fragile, but you throw the stones anyway
Don't you know shards are deadly?~

Summer

~The hot summers that make my skin sizzle
With the sun that exposes the melanin under the melanin
Windows down, AC on, an ice cold sweet tea
these are the only weapons available to me
the tools that wage war against the heat
It's only in this battle that I feel alive~
