How To LiveYour smile will come.
To the deserts of your cheeks.
But mine keeps away.
And I want to weep.
To let my tears do the rest.
Let death sweep me there.
Maybe I'm just being a drama queen.
or maybe not.
Winning? Or Loosing?It's a hot flash of red
Blinding against my eyelids.
And realize that it's not a light,
But something sticky and red.
It's that extra shot of tequila.
The last meter in a 500m dash.
But I can't help but do it again and again.
Paying no mind to the burning ache
In my muscles
Or the blood crusted in my hair.
I want to stop, but it seems that
It's a loosing battle. Half of me wants
A healthy, clean scalp.
And the other half screams PICK.
Feathers Of A TreeThey used their hearts
To reel in your memories.
They clenched their hands
Around your body and wrung
Out all the evil spirits.
They listened to your screams
But did not cease,
For fear of loosing you.
They let me sit beside you
With my knees pressed to the hard,
They hushed me when the flashing
Lights frightened me.
They broke my feeble grasp
On your heart, rushing you into the ambiance.
They calmed me when I noticed the
Deathly clammy texture to your skin and the
Monotone dead line announcing your fate.
But nothing could take away those memories.
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
