“I get lost in those eyes, those starlets of hope
I breath fresh air through those eye, those green pastures of pressing oxygen
you fill me, consume me, control me,
I see the swamps of our desires, the moss of our errors,
I am the bacteria growing, the natural habitat is my existence.
I see life in those eyes, growth under the right conditions,
I taste healing,
from the leaves, of the tree, from the growth, of the hope.”
“Set free the girl longing to be
held by your expectations
bound by your failure.
Live the life that pursues you
and pursue a life that lives for you.
Hold not heavy the unmarked
but celebrate the words unwritten.”
“The thirst quenching.
The desire builds at odd times,
grabbing hold of everything inside
little by little, thought by thought,
feeding off the resistance
feasting off your relief.”
“The leaves fall the same,
no matter where the wind blows,
no matter when
the leaves fall the same,
and it’ll happen again and again. “
“Pretending to be in solitude,
all the while having accepted loneliness.
Its the mornings you wake alone,
the silence echoing from your nightmares,
the chill of a window slightly cracked,
the realization you’re alone because you want to be there.”
“Take me to a place where the leaves change colors,
where the wind blows and the sun shines and the sky cries,
Take me someone people go to die.”
“Its supposed to happen quick
In a moment
There and not there.
Nobody ever talks the drag,
Those that don’t get instant gratification.
Those that slip away into the doctors, monitors and medications,
And the family that waits silently, screaming on the inside
hoping and praying and wishing for a miracle on the outside.
Nobody ever talks about the drag
Those that don’t get instant gratification,
Waiting for Friday, like a promised vacation.”
