Last-Breath

Free

~

I will whisper every dream with my last breath

every wish and every name that crossed my way

I will set free, and all the love I will exhale

to keep it safe as love may last longer than death,

with one last gasp my deepest secrets to betray

my last attempt for who I was for once prevail.

Scars

Scars

~

A twist and a turn and the script gets written

innocence its only once and then lost

in the midst of an act with such cost

creating unknown paths to later follow.

I refuse to see the ghosts and face my fears

behind broken emotions remain hidden

but almost done with the counting of years

I can hold my breath and remain hollow

filling every space with the bitter tears.

Nothing left but words will remain if you read

think of me then or the rhymes will feel hollow

without soul inhabiting a carcass of dead letters.

After I’m gone my lines won’t be any better

devoid of life or a voice to explain or to follow

the story lacking a plot left to die incomplete.

Sadness

Sadness

~

Attracted by sadness I step closer to the edge for just a moment, a sudden craving for a taste of tears lingering with the memories of salty bittersweet.  It is not that I seek the solace of dark rooms and cloudy days nor do I crave the pain of being outcast from happiness and smiles. There is attraction in sadness reflected by a beautiful face, lost eyes searching for a non-existent reason, tears leaving a trail across solitary skin.

~~~

Sadness reflects such a deep emotion

deeper and deeper scraping away

underneath the skin of my very soul,

a reflected image of a part I stole

only for a while and to keep I may

if I find solace in such crazy notion.

~

Standing in shadows of such darkness

let me feel the pain you willingly share

within hasty words and in bitter tears,

I will not find comfort in your fears

but to step much closer I would dare

for a hidden taste of your sadness.

Lost

Lost

~

I am lost thinking I was found

going around and around

in a never ending dream

with no set direction,

waiting for a connection

to what may have been.

~

I am lost for many years

full of pending fears

I cannot understand

since I knew my way

like the back of my hand

or as clear as day.

~

I am lost dreaming I was found

going around and around

and with every year

I get lost more and more

while my dreams are clear

better than before.
