A Heavy HeartThere was a silence;It stretchedBeyond the starsInto the grey.Sky, absent of dark,Shed lightUpon a pathThat led no way,But feet tread wearyIn cloudsWhich cast shadowsMasking a hole.With no end in sight,It stretchedBeyond the starsInto the soul.
EnchantedA golden apple tangHeralds summer's brightest fireBut I prefer to amble inPomegranate-dappled autumnsIn the darkest cornersThere are no haunted whispersAnd only caramel shadowsTransfer daylight's memoriesFor unto me the starsSnapping leaves leading moonlightAre not my coldest lonely hourBut a renewal of soul
WildfireLove is forever; on the edge ofZodiac time I stand dull, witlessThere is no wisdom in wildfire starsThat can't be told in teapot teardrops
Lost KitesLove was paper kisses;Beneath lyrical oaksWe cut the stringsOn cellophane kites. d g r n i i f t f o r e v e r
TouchedTheir love wasA prismatic butterflyA touch and go landingOn sandstone lips

Other FishThere are other fishIn the sea, but none of themIs the fish for me.I've cast a long wishOver tree, branching stream's stem,Bait from creek shady.Lure will flick and swishWith some glee, and stratagemHooks fishing trophy.So those other fishIn the sea, compare not themTo my fish in stream.
Samhain (cyhydedd fer sonnet)Mortals bent at their tricks and treatsdo not heed owl's forewarning shriek.The witching hour is not for fools,but ancestors, not ghost or ghoul.The veil is frail this gusty night with starry sky, no moon in sight.Bonfire is lit; pumpkin is carved.Harvest feast set with welcome arms.But be chary with warded careto beware fae with puckish airand keep your mummer’s guise in placelest you end being victim chased.Never to fear as dawn draws near,this day occurs just once a year.

ChangeIn the beginning,I hunted the monster.In the end,I became the monster.
TreatyThe long warBetween the heart and brainHas ended.A treaty has been signed.Finally,Bringing harmony between selfAnd community.We call it poetry.
My rapture. (2012-02-13)The spring begins within your eyes,Petals and the bract unfolding.The agreement of our cobalt skiesBehind the light you are holding.That charmed smile reassures me,Omitting any doubt life gives.The walls come down a'plenty,And again you let me live.
Promise. (2013-11-11)You are just sittingacross from me in this void.Collectively blind;We wait for our love to flareSo that we can see again.We begin standingdefined by these rusted chains.The light must greet us;We can't do anything nowbut put our promise in love.
Red Kite. (2013-04-05)The knife-winged Red KiteRiding thermals soaring steep;Hunting on day's end.Valleys and wetland edgesNow graced by its piping cry.
StrengthStrength is having no reason left to stand up and fight,but doing so anyways.
Dear DeathDear Death,my Daddy saysI cannot write to youlike I writeto Father Christmas.Why?I am trying anyways,becauseI want to make a wish:Can you say „Hi“to Grandpa,please?Mortal child,quite right thy father is,for I am notthe one in red.He giveth,and I only take away.He grants wishes,I am the endof wishing all.Thus, no messenger am I,thy foolish wishI’ll never grant.Farewell, untilI’ll take youat yourend.Death,as darkness fallsand I lie boundto this cold hospital bedI cannot helpbut recollectthe letter I once sent.Considering your grim replyyou're reaching for me soon.So I shall take the libertyto write now once again.All I really have to saywill be put in the close:I remainsincerelynot yoursyetYoung mortal,thy letter I remember well,and also my reply.Grim is my nature,grim my task,grim my dark abode.I cannot be anythingother than what I am.And when I indeed do reach for thee,my hand will grasp theewithout fail.In
How I Sleep9pm Today is the day I am going to bed at 11pm and nothing is going to stop me like it usually does!11pm *Gets a message from his best friend* I mean, he is my best friend and all, so talking to him couldn't possibly be bad.12am Oh wow! Look at that funny video... maybe... another one...1am Hey bro wanna play with us? Hell yeah! I got time to spare.2am God I wonder how you would go about curing cancer? I mean the cell functions and how even the slightest mishap in cell reproduction or any of its processes can cause it. I should totally ponder this for a long time.3am Maybe I should go to b- OH MY GOD IS THAT A VIDEO OF SOMETHING STUPID? FUCK SLEEP! OH MAN LOOK AT THAT ART! I JUST HAVE TO RANDOMLY LOOK AT EVERYTHING NOW AS WELL! *click*4am Oh man, I wonder what kind of old things I have on this computer, I haven't checked in forever!*between these times is my productive poem making because, lets be honest here who wouldn't have a random burst of things to write as they are
Broken wingsMy heart is an angel with wings.She wishes to fly,To touch the sky.She wants to be set free.Oh so badly.She beats against my rib cage,That keep her imprisoned within me.Cause I can't let her go,She begs me to let her out,She scream and shouts...So one day I decide to set her free,And there was never anyone who had fallen in love so truly,With the world and it's beauty,Until the storm came.And broke her fragile wings.And I saw my angel fall...Fall to her knees...She is nothing now,Only broken hopes and dreams.So I put her back in her cage,As if nothing had changed,But it did,Because now my angel,Who was once full hope,Is nothing but,A pair of broken wings.
ghostly.my body is a cemetery,tenanted by rustic tombsand gaping graves,flooded by the tears i swallow.every single epitaphbears your onyx name.

SocietySociety can be many things, like a hydra has many heads.Society can be the most extensive family tree.Society can be the most extravagant party.Society can be the most fearsome of beasts.Society can be the most compassionate Samaritan.Society can be a grotesque monster.Society can be a truly destructive army.Society can be a virus.Society is the ultimate torture device.An iron maiden, rack and a brazen bull all in one.For me.
I'll always remember youI never remember you smilingbut I remember you swallowing your griefas if your tears had run dryas if your thorax was empty underneathI never remember you hugging mebut I remember you opening your armsstanding before me, like my unbreakable, human shieldas if nothing could tear you apartI never remember you doting on mebut I remember you waiting for my fever to dropsleepless and restless; like my angel in black you'd cover meas if in my haze I could sense you standing over meI never remember you praising mebut I remember you being in the crowdin the concert my band played after I failed all of my testsas if raising me had been your life's biggest successI never remember you telling mehow much you loved mebut I remember you living for meso how could I blame you for never showing me?you taught me that only the heart can see the truthand my heart can seethat I'll always remember you

InvisibleI am the person who everyone jests,I am depressed, seen as a pest.Everyday I have to face my acceptance,Between thousand of mortals, I have no importance…The pain inside feels so bizarre,Smiles are endless miles far.As I cut more and moreAdored by the bloody gore…That happiness I had, shed by a single tear,Knowing that Sadness will soon be near.And this will repeat again tomorrow,Another Day, Filled with eternal sorrow…Can’t you hear me crying in despair?No one’s around… and non aware…
The DragonDancing in a cloud,I am a waterfall withfreedom on my wings.
