Sleeping Party

All the invited show

But I am too nervous to face them

I hideaway in the confines of the only space I know

My head in my pillow

Where I often go

To weep as the willow, I plant myself deep

If I can’t see what I miss

I feign ignorance for bliss

I wait for the clock to countdown till the lot

Clears from my home

In my room alone, I hear the sound of laughter

A happiness for which, the pursuit I am not after

I sometimes raise my head and wonder

If only I could leave this place

Perhaps in another life things could be different

The eventual silence soothes me to sleep

A soundless slumber in faceless dreams

Names I will soon forget

In the end, nothing is different

Fleeting Beauty

Art displayed: Fire by Lisa Sommers

Bridges – by .Sinh (optional musical accompaniment)

 

Ephemeral beauty

Fleeting tragedy

Where I found you

In a high magnitude catastrophe

An amber stone born of blazing fire

Steaming water into airborne sapphire

The forest now a burning pyre

The emerald leaves fueled your greed

You had the world stand still enamored

The light of your radiance with insatiable maintenance

You consumed all

Until there was nothing left

The age of fire became ash

Nothing ever lasts

I found you in the remains of a world from long before

But

You do not belong here in the dark

Hearts of Time

Blackened bark in a disparate forest

Where the hearts of the unrequited hang like fruit

Tied by a noose that could not forget

Ropes of memories created this cemetery

Fairly but far

Screams in the distance

As blood fed the soil below

No monsters here

No fear

Only the disdain and mistreat

Our own demons

The heart, the place of most deceit

If you were to walk through

The shroud of age

Would surely trap you

Caged.

To run away from a youth

Better forgotten

But there is no choice

This soil asks for you

You can hear its voice

A gentle weep that creeps behind

A telltale sign of the time

How sublime, mother nature awaits the return

In life, a breath so deep

In death a silence, we sleep

Our hearts have always belonged here

Mother earth will always be waiting

The home we left

The theft, to steal peeks above our depth

We collected for her, all these stories to reminisce

A fairy tale before the goodnight kiss

A time we will soon forget to miss

When this soil erodes

It will be buried in the sands of time.

Lost Shadow

Will He – by Joji (optional musical accompaniment)

Penumbral love lost

The light steers you away

So bright and I lose sight

Another day

And I’ve lost you again

Regrettably never will I find another spot under the sun

Dark shadow of mine

We try to chase you together

In the dark between buildings

I’m blind but the trill of your saliva

Warm and unmistakable

Now tingling with the cold of your breath

My ear is deafened in the ecstacy, this bond unbreakable

I know you too well sweet darkness

I hide here in your swell

My secrets and fears consoled in you

Quietly all is well

We whisper words for no one else to hear

Savory intricacies of our lives and passions

The taste of your lips on the tip of my tongue

In distasteful fashion the noises you make

They chill my spine and raise my hairs

I stand straight to attention as all else

The way you stare up towards me

As you steal every ounce of air

Beckoning me down toward the fissure

I breathe you in

As I slumber deeply within you

The abyss where I would spend eternity

A time of infinity to be blind

Would still not be enough with you as mine

The Shade

The opportunity finds itself

Wilting, fading to gray

Never here to stay

I failed to seize the day

And watched it slip away

Just out of reach

Where the rays of sun gleam

And I close my  eyes to sleep

In a shade of dreams

The cutrains close and open scenes

Passing in an instance

Or just to me it seems

Watching this play, pass by pass away

Under the shade of sleep where forever I will lay

And into never ending dreams where forever I will stay

Fear Our Story

Trying to find the perfect words

Finding the title currently unnamed

To a story that continues to go unwritten

Even the fiction of it becomes so unreal

That it’s reality rings harsher than even the truth

There are no perfect words to bring it back now

What we choose to forget are closed pages we chose not to read

 

Unnamed beauty from the side

They face our backs to us so we only we see their spines

There their names are, so we face them to the back of the shelves

And admire empty pages

The Night Sky

Weak – by Yuutsu (optional musical accompaniment)

I cannot say that I am not jealous

You spoke softly in my ear

The same words that you whispered

Onto the palette you held

Beautiful and succinct

Creating color

Clear but divided

In multiplicity

But qualities of your features

Unknown to many slipped through in your words

You colored the sky in strokes of purple and pink, skewering it with wavy fuchsia

Dashing green aura and fire yellow, only to end in blue

Sitting on the edge of a crescent moon where no one could sit beside you

Humming peacefully, yet playfully as you dabbed darker shades

I continued to watch you through the frame of this picture

However did you get inside?

You painted the universe behind a night sky

And looked to me and smiled

Cocked head and devious grin

All the stars still left in your eyes

Shining so brightly, magnificently blinding

I could not look away

You took your brush one last time with a final dab of blue

You gently brushed the tip of my nose to let me know it was the smell of ink

You no longer held a brush but just a pen

Holding a finger to your lips

You wrote three words that read,

“Don’t be jealous”

But they said, “I love you

And in that moment I knew

That no eyes would ever see the universe of you

Covered behind the night sky of navy blue

Only I, would get to love you too

The night sky for all to see but an entire universe just for

me.

Clarity

The sky that day was grey and somber

With a happiness that turned to sadness

She went away like lightning

And the thunder of my choked up cries, they followed

And though the rain was heavy

The lightning still ignited fire in it’s tempest

She no longer the temptress

And like that it spread, a forest fire

My dreams reignited

Long forgotten in the days

Where the sky was blue

But now that blue lies with you

And in the light of day I hid away, for us

The sky with it’s clouds became a canvas

And on the grey and sullen, dirty peppered

Aged and cracked, face of mine

I opened my eyes to see the world

So that I could retake me

Not the sun or sky of a daydream happiness

But the courage to weather the storm and smile in the rain

Looking up with raindrops rolling down my chin and cheeks

Even in the miles of grey, it’s never been so clear

Always

I was looking out the window into pitch black night

No stars in the sky to indicate the looming interest of the sun

I could wait in endless night

Thinking of you

I Dream the day away

I sleep in broad daylight

To feel the warmth against my skin, no different from feeling you brushing up against me

So gently, almost as if

I reach out to hold your hand, just once more

If I could

Only if I could

I’m here in the middle of the street

Every other lamp post unlit

Walking in and out of the light

Reappearing where I don’t want to be

I start to run

Hoping to find the darkness

If that’s where you are

I’ll follow you

Dearest of mine

Disappearing I’m

Losing the part of me

Trying to find

You

Where are you?

I can’t find forever but I found never

I never thought it would be this way

It’s strange isn’t it?

I’m disappearing too

But somehow

Wherever nothing and never cease to exist

We won’t be

At least, not knowingly together

And it makes me wonder

How could it be that

Somehow, I will still always love you
