Restlessness

I hold the restlessness

Upon my shoulders

And my heart in my hands-

        And if this is to carry on,

             Then I will keep moving

                         Forever.

Hurricane

You were my hurricane,

I carried you in my winds.

But everytime I rose, you settled me.

And now that I am gone-

You still dwell.

Candles and Wine

Candles and oh that glass of wine.

I am waiting here - for a thing divine.

and I know not - why do I dwell

For it haunts me - that soothing spell

Have I lost it? Yes help me find.

Is it my heart? Or maybe, my mind.

Or is it me? All of me,

For I am not where I should be.

I find myself there in your eyes.

Im lost as oceans and lost as skies.

I am everywhere. And you are everywhere.

I can not listen, but your voice I hear.

I have lost my sight - but its you I see

And nothing else - not even me.

Or is it such that I just fell.

I want to, but I can not tell.

For the candles and oh that wine.

Is nothing but a dream of mine.

Mistaken

I am but only mistaken;

Mistaken such that I fall,

And I fall,

Till I can fall no more.

Today I Have Learned Two Things:

There are bricks inside my chest

I was told I am merely stressed, still

I apprehend my heart became depressed and

Out of panic, the heart became submissive to the brain

"I beg of you to relieve me of this pain!"

So listless towards the accustomed bursting,

It stuck with dissolving, leaking beneath my breasts

Sneaking out of my life,

For the strife of my psyche

Was too much for it to beat even slightly

I just had to cry: I felt it melt

Through my sternum, as if a burden

Settling in my stomach only to be digested,

Only to die as requested

No matter how often I grieved,

Still nobody believed me

They shook their head

And it didn’t matter if I was afraid

So on that dreadful night,

A voice inside gave insight:

"This will probably hurt and

You may disconcert,

But you’ll be just fine…

And if not...

Who minds?

Besides,

There is so much pain,

With not one who cares

Enough to repair."

I lied deathly still in my bed, full of fright

As the blade of the oscillating saw

Carved through my flawed torso and—

There it was:

The heart 

I thought had 

Fallen apart

And although I cried,

I silently wished it died

In order to annihilate heartache,

I must eliminate the source of my problem:

The heart!

After breaking the bones I have known,

I laughed as if I were mad

(I am not)

As I dug my heart out

And I could never describe what it feels like

To hold a beating heart in trembling hands

I would say, assembling a collection of drugs

And swallowing them all at once,

Along with your pride,

Is the only way to encounter anything near my high

Still, we have been told as long as we’ve been around:

What goes up,

Must come down

What they don’t tell you,

Is that includes your emotions

What they don’t tell you,

Is that most of us are ignorantly ambivalent

What they don’t tell you,

Is that you can be the human equivalent to an explosion 

         - Today I Have Learned Two Things:

1. How it feels to hold a beating heart in trembling hands

2. The only thing worse than feeling pain is feeling nothing at all

Emotions are a Trick of the Mind

She told me that

She didn’t believe sex was love,

But pleasure between two people

I agreed and reminded her

She was much above a sequel

I told her that

Lust can be distrust,

But it wasn’t worth much

Since it was loneliness at a dearth,

Lurking for a hand to hold

And no matter how much

Searching, loneliness

Never does find that gold

She told me that

Elation was not an emotion,

But a false realization

I nodded my head,

Since it reminded me

I was better off dead

Haiku #1

Do I look as though

I'm still in mint condition?

'Cause I'm far from that.

Bitter

I was a feeble baby bird,

Downed to the absurd ground

When they pushed me out of the nest,

They guessed I would fly

Instead I cry for I need a sling

For this damned broken wing,

I need to learn how to fix my head

Without ending up dead

I would trade all of my pride

For what I was denied and

It takes less than a second to prove

The biggest mistake of my life was

Moving before the Akita attacked -

The doctors said if it was my frail body,

They couldn’t bring my pale soul back

So I can live in strife

That I was never disembodied,

I can archive as much as I desire and

I can sleep as much as I require

Still when I come to,

I will have a life to live

Where it truly matters

Who I become and

How I shatter

I May Not Need You, But That Doesn't Mean I Wouldn't Bleed for You

It’s true I don’t need you but it scares me

How much I would bleed for you,

How much you reprieve

The idea that the longer you stay,

The harder it is to leave

Haunts me to this day

And Annie said love and hate are equal,

But I don’t want to believe her

So I try not to think of a sequel

It’s true it can’t be much more than an accident

That we met and we mattered,

That we oxidize and we shattered

And Annie said life is so fragile,

Now we know it

So please, be careful how you show it

For when you say it,

It sounds like the first song

I have ever had the pleasure

To prolong and to measure

It’s true that I will not set myself on fire for you

But I will steal all the light on this earth,

To remind you of your worth,

To keep you warm when the whole world

Has transformed into an unfurled storm

And Annie said to burn it, burn it all

Either way,

I’ll turn it into a fireplace in the rough

If my embrace doesn’t keep you warm enough

Experiential Third Person

She spent too much time in hospitals,

Trying to convince the nurse she’s acquittal

Though we all know it was rehearsed,

No one sees more deflection

Than her own sore reflection

They’ll stick when she’s sick

Forget healing,

She strived to escape

From the people and the feelings

She longed to replace with anything

She thought could fill the space

So she let them pump her full of pills

In hope they would accidentally kill

She said she would do anything to make it all go away

Even though it has been years since she last prayed

Now her cigarettes are stained red,

Though a different red stains her bed

Is that enough to fix her head,

Or is this girl already dead?
