I do not like that buzz in my ear. The sound of things coming to an end. It's a bee you can't bat away. Not with your prayers, not with all the good will you wish on yourself and the world around you. Not even with love... cos lets face it. there's no such thing.

I shall for one last time, thank thee.
We have names for our different loves over time
We have games we play, songs to rhyme
We have in secret made our secret liaisons
We have left behind lives and loves and lies of our loves.
For the laughs and the music and the walks and the rainy nights
I shall forget to remember thee.

A momentary grasp of the ever elesuive Real
A glimmer of red juicy light in a kaliedoscope of tears
A silence between the lover and her beloved
A hand reahing out, a head away, turned.
The velvety liquid between her legs
The rejection faced third time over
The vault that never opens
The sigh that escapes inspite, despite....
How many times before you break?
How many saves before they miss?
The moon's light shines only as much
What illuminates our direction then?
The music plays only as much
What gives solace then?
Give me color and a brush
I'll paint over your words...

And a right to remember.
I walked past a monument
Glancing at its destruction for a moment
I reflected on the old
And let the new remain
Trying to stay away
Trying to remain unchanged.
A thought, lopsided
A memory, undermined.
I know only what I see in your eyes
I believe in every human that's right
I tear at my skin when the words dont come
I fear unreasonably when the lights go down.
But even big worlds crumble
Where lies my poor soul then?

Tear them up and they are gone
Towers of cards they are
Tip them and they fall
They tell us not to act out
To make believe it's alright
When its not.
They say it's not in our place to be God
But I don't see Him around now and then
Would you like to be Him
Just this once?
Let's play a game, save a dame
Distress calls go unheard
The motifs stay clear
Of the ongoing drama.
Why don't you say a word
When it could make all the difference
I may not be the shy type
But I don not like these silent confrontations.
I dream of wars when I lie next to you
I see your face in the crowd
I see them walking away
I see opportunities ungrasped
I'm learning to shut my eyes, close my heart
And ignore the waysides.

Do you understand bitterness?
When it seeps into your feet
Twisting itself around the ankles
Creeping onto your thighs
Grabbing you by the navel
Gathering storm in the chest
And then finally punches you right in face.
Do you taste it in your mouth?
The sour leftovers of words undoable
The sweet tasting victory of rage
The bile rising up from unrequited loves.
Do you not recognize it?
In the lines on your face
In the lives of those who are but dead
In the dark clouds empty of rain.
Do you suffocate in it's loud presence
Or do you lash out in blind disdain
I have burned in white flames
But what about the stains.
When did we fall so low
That we can now not stand

Thwarting forward intenions
Mistaken identities walk free
Jaded by quests for unattainable power
Content in her misery she stays
Forward and backward
The rhythm always the same
She laughs when she bleeds.
He's wary but tired
A penchant for the ugly
He stares bewitched
When she stumbles listless.
One man's fall, another man's pride
One woman's disgrace, a man'sprize.
Where does the river take us
Are you willing to find out?

fade within your deepest breath
melt inside your tightest embrace
fold within your soul and become
roses left to starve
mind games yet to start
i lay on my side of the bed
cold waves of a dying revolution
cradled in wounded arms
who are they to talk,
when we've barely begun?
and the tears fall insistant
claiming history and a sure future
gently falling into your lap
surely you jest
when you say my name
surely it is wrong
when they are right.
there is this road seldom trodden
i want to be that road.

and i love the bits of sky
that flit between
the greena bandon
sprwaling expanses that last
for a moment
as we speed past
its not that we don't know
it's not that we're pretending
it's not that we stray
it's just life.

with floppy ears.
with their swishing
with bournvita powder toppings
collars open at the
rolled up sleeves.
nonchalance n sarcasm.
the sound of
distorted crunchy guitars
make me so wet.
i know i'll hear you
when the lights go out.
Saturday, April 18, 2009
i love the sound of your name, like a heartbeat it waits, pulsing on my lips. and i love this waiting and the fact that i know you're waiting too, for a little something, a little everything.
so i hope you'll understand what's not being said here
and i hope you'll know and hear and see what's hidden here
because time's running out
and there's little i can say
that i wouldn't take back later....

Bound to immorality, a scapegoat
Your life, your thought
Immeasurable to a point
"I hate it when you forget..."
And there are choices that we made
Holding us prisoners in little black boxes
And if we could step out for a moment
I bet I could hear your mind again.
And our words remain etched
In deep recesses
Ready to burst out
At a moment's notice
Destroying everything in it's wake
"I hate it when I remember..."
Finish me off
Before I submit
Choked for air
Occupied, owned, resurrected
From thin air

A lopsided grin and beady eyes
The world lives right in her palm
Voiceless she spins the magic wand
And it's day, and it's light.
Would you teach me how?
"I could have swept you away
If you weren't so strong."
Without a word
She walked on water
Like the prophet
Silent and weightless.
"And I thought
Your mind would weigh you down."
There are voices in my head
And I'm just about done listening.

the dust that's settled and grown...
covered and sown...
and i dont remember
the last time
i actually looked at myself
without looking away...
the words that come and go
your eyes that love and... love...
and suddenly i have everything...
i wish i knew
what i'm trying to complain about...
"i want to feel beautiful for just one day and then i'll probably think of letting everything go..."
on a totally unrelated note -
college sucks. too much work. no time. no interest!
life sucks. too many people. no time. no interest!

Haven't felt this quite in so long
A new peace and an old song
Watching the roads below us run
As the lights disappear and the winds hum.
And its bittersweet, coming back
Pictureframes already fading into black
Your voice resounding through this crippling distance
How much longer till you are back?
Living with, breathing without
Tides of love on this shore of life
And I break free of shackles and watch
The long road beneath us run.

Feverish dreams unheard
She sleeps within her waking bubble
Unconscious to the colors
"Favor me a glance my love
Shamed by your words
I only fight for what's mine."
Thrown apart, creeping elsewhere
An untoward touch here
A monster weeping there
And I was the only one who saw you that night!
He wakes to her silent breathing
She swats an imaginary fly
He hooks his thigh over a slender leg
She wishes him to die.
