Boundary Lines

There is a line in you. 

Some fathomless regret

That crosses boundaries

To the edge of exclusion. 

There is some dark vein

Which turns you inside out

And makes even the fleeting beat

Of angels seem morose.

Is is the silence

That holds you so tightly? 

Some regret that you

Cannot get away from? 

Is it a truth

So horrible and real

That even gods would 

Weep to hear it?

There is a line in you, 

And even I dare not

Cross its darkness. 

Beyond it is the chasm.

debris.

the demons creep closer towards me,

half-forgotten triggers I left in the debris,

a face I almost forgot existed,

my mind becomes warped and twisted.

colours, certain types of clothes or a tv show,

suddenly become a sudden, unexplainable blow.

tumbling, tumbling down I go,

to the depths of hell I've hidden below.

all I can do is remember, remember,

my solid mask starts to dismember.

the half-buried memories surface in rage,

and my clouded past takes centre stage.

About your eyes

I think it's amazing, one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. What breaks my heart is the sadness in your eyes when you do smile.

shoelaces

i'm tripping over shoelaces

and falling over beating hearts

while you are watching

with amused, worried eyes.

my fingers turn to ice

and i manage to mumble

"i like your hair" before

the world ends and

my shoelaces are strangling me.

Outcast

Somewhere deep down, a bell tolled.

Stunning those silent whispers in my heart.

Far away, the birds flocked high,

leaving their tree empty as my soul.

There are times, when you want to cry out loud.

Give a voice to the anguish in your heart.

But again, the voice falters and breaks.

And despair grows dark and deep.

You try and try, to let someone in,

You try and try, to let everything out.

Nobody wants to be alone.

Let alone be invisible.

Some souls are meant to be so.

Alone in the darkness of despair.

Like the lone wolf that howls.

Like the north star that burns out alone.

I got this idea from a poetry workshop I went to yesterday: Write a poem about what your words do. "My words change" or "My words never lie" for example. Make it as creative as you want! And tag me @LiberalPoet.

Words

My words are air,

Shaping there way,

Through filters.

Pushing through,

The gaps in my walls,

Venting my emotions.

My words are water,

Filling me up.

Gathering,

In my eyes,

Meandering,

My thoughts.

My words are the earth,

Taking hold,

Of my feet,

Stable and safe,

My heart and my roots,

I gravitate to them.

My words are my fire,

They burn through,

All of me.

Dancing in chaos,

Clearing a path,

Freeing my feelings.

My words are my spirit,

My soul and all of me.

Laid bare for anyone,

Tidied onto a page,

For only my eyes,

And those I choose to let see.

You said you'd do anything

Even die for me

No, I want you to live

Keeping Memories

Her eyes may be the window to her soul

But in all honesty I'd rather not know

Underneath that mask she's faceless

Pushing me exceedingly low

Sometimes I wonder if she desired to eat me whole

As she walks to me, graceless

Her touch implied: 'baby,

I don’t want to leave you,

I only want to leave me'

And I think maybe that’s the truth

I didn’t say I would see her later

Because I knew I wouldn’t and

I can’t say I'm an adulator

When it’s not due

Now I was going to burn that memory card,

Though I admit I found it ever so hard

She kept me alive a hundred times

Which sounds betimes if unaware of her crimes and

Either way I would still be left scarred

You see, she killed me a thousand times

Got so many ways to get it wrong

Alas, there is beauty in our memories

Even in the moments you weren’t so strong

And I find that quite complimentary

Steps to the Cellar

Dreams of acetaminophen

crumble by in his sleep

dissolving into water droplets 

at heaven's gate because he

is a product of wise words 

and stolen wine...
