Four line poems Vol. 1I.
We live in our minds
Hiding our desires
Playing a balancing act
Like walking on high wires
I saw the heart break in my periphery
and the insult to injury
I ignored what I could plainly see
Just so you would stay with me
Not all battles have a victor
sometimes no one walks away richer
Sometimes the cost is too high
despite the rallying battle cry
You have cracks in your mask
But I promise I won't ask
because we are meant to outlast
the demons of our past
Your promises spoiled
once they were spoken
My trusting heart
was therefore always broken
SilenceWith you there was always music
and we would dance together
only deafening silence remains
it kills me
I can hear
my own tears fall
upon the blank paper like
the tut tut tut of rainstorms
Attic of FlowersAn attic of flowers
Locked inside lonely towers
Days turn to weeks turn to years
Time flowing as freely as our tears
Force fed lies
Left to die
Apart from the whole universe
Feeling like we're under a curse
Time is frozen in our attic
we remained unchanged, static
We built a home out of a cage
Dreamed of escape, fueled by rage
Find solace in one another
Even if he is my brother
I love him with all my heart
I damn the day we might be torn apart
My cup of teaWhen did reality,
fall to fantasy?
When did sadness,
fall to madness?
but for people like me,
its our cup of tea.
Count downOn the count of ten
I will cause my end
Is this the end of the line
A note that says "Do not resuscitate"
Will I go to heaven?
I've been beaten so long by stones and sticks
Will I miss being alive?
My mind is at war
This isn't how I'd thought it'd be
Is this really what I want to do?
In my hand is a loaded gun
Walking away, I've become my own Hero
Let go of himYou're a Femme Fatal threat,
hidden behind a cigarette
Pulling his strings like Geppetto
In your red hot Stilettos
Your heels dig in to his skin
when you walk all over him
you're on his arm like a tattoo
But I can see the real you
You don't care about that boy
You play with him like a toy
You're claws dig into his mind
making him ignorant and blind
But you threw him away
Like trash from yesterday
You have no right anymore
To treat him like he's yours
Punch lineThe smile is deceiving,
Cause inside I'm screaming
These dreams I'm dreaming,
I can't help believing
all the things I once embraced
are all gone with out a trace
I tell everyone I'm fine
While I drink a glass of wine
Drink away this pain of mine
Feeling like a punch line
A Mother's Day PoemMoms are like guardian angels
They take you under their wings
They'll always protect you
From all the bad things
They'll check under your bed
For the monsters that hide there
They'll always be beside you
Pulling advice from thin air
They support you like a pedestal
Raise you up to the sky
They help you chase your dreams
And wipe your tears when things go awry
They love you at your highs
They love you at your lows
When you need a little cheering up
A mother always knows
Mom, I want to say thank you
For helping me believe
In magic and in myself
And all the love I receive
I love you unconditionally
And I always will
To the moon and back
then up again still
I love you
Claire's Symphony (a short story) Claire hurried to class, her instrument grasped tightly in hand and her book bag bounced on her hip in response to her movements. If she didn’t hurry up, this would be the second time this week that she would be late to band class, even if it was by only two minutes. As quickly and politely as she could, Claire weaved through the other students. The hall was alive with the dull roar of students talking to each other and the ever present smell of perfume and gym socks. It seemed a majority of the students were traveling the other way than her. Trying to pass through them was like trying to swim up a raging river, the rapid forever flowing against you. Finally, she was in reach of the band room hall way. She stepped inside the door right as the bell rang and she sighed with relief.
Tripping over her own feet, Claire hastily took her seat with the others of her section, took out her flute and raised her stand. The teacher was not there at first
I hear it all
What you screech
Every line repeats
Until I fall in my defeat
Can I ever stop
The barrage of words
That crumples me down
Onto the floor?
What gives you the right
To drag my face through dirt?
Why, oh why do I listen to you,
Who brings so much hurt?
Your words bring tears,
Heat rising to my face.
I run out in humiliation,
Sobs coming as I race.
My heart is bleeding
My ears are ringing
My chest is pounding
My sorrow astounding
I can't take it
Enough is enough
The smile is cracked
The mask now gone
I'm finally beaten
Is that what you want?
I'm just a human
I'll never live up
Never reach what yo
Are running out
Like the future
That my heart
My black eyes
Her gorgeous march.
Breaking my hopes
Was our last
She ran away
My life turned grey
Living a plastic life
It’s easy to watch
An entire society
Like bricks in a wall.
Let me stay
Here with you.
I don’t belong
There to them
It was a mistake
Believe that I
My tears spillMy missing you,
my wanting you,
my needing you still,
my tears spill.
it´s all been said before,
you´d just walk in the door.
My love for you,
my dreams of you
oh if it could only be,
then I´d turn back the hands of time
and you´d still be here with me.

Wedding VowToday, my love, I lay my hand in thine
And vow to spend forever at thy side
The path that lies ahead of thee now mine
My strength to bear thy cares and match thy stride
Today, my love, I wear thy wedding ring
I pledge devotion, heart and soul, to thee
I share what joys and sorrows time will bring
And cherish thee for all eternity
Today, my love, I pledge myself thy wife
And take thee as the husband of my heart
I gift thee all the moments of my life
That nothing in this world tear us apart
You Told Me That You Loved MeYou told me that you loved me
And breathed life in to my world
You told me that you loved me
And you’ll always be my girl
You told me that you loved me
That I’m such a special man
You told me that you loved me
And we were part of His plan
Now you tell me you don’t love me
But you still let me believe
You tell me you don’t love me
And you never let me grieve
You tell me you don’t love me
That we can only be friends
Then you tell me you still love me
But never speak to me again
Secrets and PromisesI am here because of the past,
Because of a promise that is endeavored to be kept.
I can only hope that this dread won't last.
Since the past is also what's killing me the most.
But no one knows,
What goes on in my head.
The painful woes,
That have not yet gone away.
Secrets that can not be shared,
Buried deep, and very far.
Only if anyone cared,
But God knows no one ever will.
Hiding the truth may never feel right,
But I am only doing it for the best.
I am not going to win this fight,
For what is left of me, I'm broken.
Widows FearsIn a graveyard a widow stands
Remembering her lover who lays below
Under the stars
Weeping like a willow
The sky starts crying
In sync with her tears
This is why she had quit trying
Why she’d fallen into her fears
Keep your head up.The weight of the world is sitting on your shoulders,
crushing you down,
and making you smaller.
The more you struggle,
the heavier it gets.
My advice is:
Keep your head up.
When it pushes,
And when the world gets the message,
you will fly.
And when you fly,
you will finally understand what it means to be alive.
And that is,
to keep your head up,
and look at the challenge without flinching,
and once you rein dominance,
you hand it over to another that is giving up.
No one deserves what you previously felt.
A Song for the StarsUnder the night sky, here I stand
To seek for beauty, peace and love
I once have known in human's land
But I now see in stars above.
Beneath the heavens, I look up
To see the wonder of the stars,
Wishing the night would never stop,
That I could always gaze at Mars.
After midnight, I'm still awake,
Thinking of stars and something else -
You whom I love, for goodness' sake,
And my love - none but stars can tell.
The constellations - they remind
Me of your eyes that I hold dear
In my memories, in my mind
(All while I look at stars so clear).
In the midst of dawn, I still stand
To feel your presence once again,
Like when you roamed the human's land
When life was great and free of pain.
Early morning, I now look down
To think of you and other stars;
Although I may not see them now,
They're still there, like you always are.
Ode to Allison ArgentYou came in speeding, like you were a bullet train
You died like a hunter, in battle you were slain
Don't worry Allison, you didn't die in vain
Your selfless sacrifice, brought the key to victory
and the banshee's cry, told your soul that is was free
No one said, this war wouldn't come with casualties
But trust me girl, Your memory is strong
In the hearts of your friends, it will always belong
Just like you, powerful all along
Keep in Touch!
