Reality

~

Reality took a peek mocking my dreams

“ you dreamed for too long” I heard

while I refused to accept what seems

reality’s truth so I cut off my ears

and as everything became blurred

I saw signs posted everywhere

“wake up, wake up” it read

so I made myself blind

and to ignore all prepared

when I heard myself said

“what you seek will never find”

so in the midst of my craze

knife in hand I did not care

cutting my tongue, and as I bled

and slowly faded into my dreams

I heard the voice inside my head.

Riddle

Riddle

 ~

Do we become who we are

or simply hang somewhere

unfinished, unpolished for all to see

alone and unprepared

not knowing how to be free.

 ~

Do we complete who we are

or the pieces of us scattered

of our life puzzle missing parts

and simply bruised and shattered

one among other broken hearts.

 ~

Do we remain who we are

or fade into nothingness of death

with no heavens or hell

lost hope in our final breath

as we leave behind a broken shell.

H.O.

Recur

Recur

Emotions drained

masturbatory obsessions

taking hold again

in such repetitious cycle

up and down, up and down

words without expressions

fake smiles of a clown

with every night a recycle

of ideas and dreams

that lead nowhere.

I miss the extremes

left behind somewhere

another time, another place

another me, another face.

If             (words become a game)

~

When the moon is full and bright, I sigh

wasted in my lonely soul its light.

.

When memories creep up at night, I cry

hidden in the shadows of the night.

.

When reality drags me down, I curse

alone in my dreams immersed.

.

When

.

I sigh in the light

cry at night

curse in dreams immersed

.

Then I turn to you for comfort, I smile

loving you becomes worthwhile.

.

Then I tell myself life is fair, I wait

knowing that happiness will be my fate.

.

Then look at possibilities within, I gleam

holding on to my reality and dreams.

.

Then

.

A smile is worthwhile

To wait is my fate

I gleam within dreams.

Who are you in that faceless place

filled with letters and sentences

without skin and bones to define

the scars among words I find

as we become acquaintances

in the joy and pain we embrace.

~

Now transformed by what’s found

in between the lines I explored

searching for love and kindness,

I discovered in my blindness

that I’m not alone anymore

when to your heart I am bound.

Scraps

falling-letters

Scraps

Scraps are left for me to feed

lacking beauty in every stroke defined

between places full of grime

collected through my years

and only I can see.

No beautiful moon to bring tears

or tender songs to call mine

no love whispered in my ears

only empty spaces

and a cold bed.

No accusing faces

or committed crime

as I alone wept.

I tried I said, I tried

definition to chaos find

and to everything I said

but broken down I die

with scraps to feed my feeble mind.

Pieces

broken-pieces1

Pieces

I look for broken pieces

shreds of life left out there

within pain that breaking releases

and If I to become a light

then to let go you must dare.

An attraction I cannot fight

to such dark places I knew

when awake alone at night

I see myself within you

as I look for broken pieces.
