On hollow street
there's a home in my heart,
these eyes are vacant;
a soul torn apart
that the wind has whipped
far out of my reach.
Your accusations
all but fasten me to the stake,
slowly, gently,
I have begun to break
in the slightest ways that I wish
you could see.
Your invisible standards
are now clear as day
I fear I've lost control
over words that should convey
my confession to you;
what a monster I have become.

All Eyes on Me

Steady feet
wander blindly in the darkness
as eyes shift restlessly,
searching for a single glint
buried within the fabricated midnight.
A once certain heart
beats fiercely,
caged behind marrow bars,
and memory recedes
into blank trepidation.
Facing the black abyss,
stiff hands tremble,
awaiting a single spotlight
to streak the dark.
A flash.
Expectant glances blur into focus;
captivate me,
they await their satisfaction.
Breath is steadied,
eyes locking into position
above bodiless faces
as thoughts merge.
Two minds become one;
I am born.

A Dance For the Ages

Days pass
as hollow breaths,
counted one after the other;
our hearts beating in syncopation.
To the steady beat
of no music,
we dance along barren roads,
heel to toe;
waltzing the thin line
between the open road
and an empty promise.
Trembling lips offer
the careless vibrations
of your persistent speech
as we take our steps
moving as one being.
The dance ends,
and our fingers entwine
while we wait for applause
to swell within deaf ears.
We meander on mindlessly,
waving to the passers
in the streets, miles away,
who watched us dance
from such great heights;
wishing they knew how.

Hollow Thoughts

Your eyes imprison
a soul that lies in wait.
My heart echoes,
hollow beats drifting
into deaf ears.
Each memory
sinks beyond reach,
my hand reaching for your heart
as I fall into you.
break weak promises
that withstood the test of time.
Thoughts struggle
to break free of marrow cages,
bones crushing to dust
under a vacant frame.
My eyes bleed
the pain withheld,
undoubtedly broken
for all of eternity.
Lesson by lesson
you slip past me,
until I am truly alone.

Color My World

Blind eyes wander
through roads of
blurred memory,
a fragmented past
remaining shadowless
under the stupor of a white sky.
Colors blaze,
clouding glassy vision
as flaring silhouettes
escape mind's eye.
The world succumbs to uniformity
as delusion
intertwines with reality;
a distorted perception
in the labyrinth of ability.
Agonizing beauty
renders each sense useless
as impossible symmetry
becomes uncontrollable;
a silent barrier.

Hopefully Silent

Fog lifts
from phantom eyes,
rapture clinging to
ancient tears
as grief holds fast to
hollow bones of experience.
Hands extend,
and commanding innocence
grasps blossoming possibilities
that lie within opportunity.
A once plummeting soul
falls into the twists of
gnarled branches,
growing with each heartbeat
that shakes the roots
of secondhand reality.
Straightening gently,
temptation scrapes
wounded breaths
that are held behind each smile;
a silent prayer is sent
behind independent lips
until routine is broken.

Delicate Rivalry

Intertwining rhythms
secrete the beauty of immortality,
burning the reflection of
unbound power
into memory.
Desire drifts
from heart to mind,
fearful incandescence escaping
from fragmented chains.
Suffocating ignorance
cloaks reality
as blind consciousness
dominates moral prevalence.
Staggered insanity
lingers behind the vanity
of a shattered looking glass,
malignant distress haunting
the eyes of a child.
Adolescence battles resilience,
each affliction wounding
the heart of a warrior;
a persistent trial.

Past Memories

Obscure innocence
reflects the light in your smile
as blossoming tears drown
your conspired hypocrisy.
In your palm lay
blindfolded promises,
hidden by the bitter ambrosia
of your deception.
are stolen from lifeless winds
that cradle dark,
moldering flowers;
tainted with betrayal.
Naive eyes
unveil tangled weavings
of duplicity,
preserved by my demise.
Distressed hands
risk sanity through bravery,
grasping the fabric of time
to gather the past.
becomes reality in your eyes;
a perfect stranger.

I Believe In You

Eyes twinkle
under a thousand stars,
reminiscence flickering
as innocence dances
in the heart of your smile.
Silence binds the world
into a diluted rapture,
emptiness echoing
the rhythm of years past.
Paper flowers crinkle,
whispering lullabies
of devoid illusion,
murmuring skeletal pleas
of forgiveness.
Vanity swells within
a crippled heart,
trapped inside a shell of a soul.
A wary hand extends,
fear imprisoning possibility;
my miracle.

Your hand extends,
dark eyes flickering as the moon
casts a shadow over
clenched palms.
Teeth grind,
scraping against cracked lips
that refuse to part.
and soul
stand alone, disappearing
while silent screams
beg for freedom,
suffocating as a broken
looking glass
spills burning raindrops.
Eyes shift
heart beats
Words collapse
under the weight of time.
No escape, no goodbyes.
I love you.

Hearts race
with thoughts that collide;
the pulse of humanity
swelling within hollow veins.
Midnight shines
through transparent skin,
innocence clinging
to phantom memory
as glass eyes shatter.
Forbidden agony emerges,
and teardrops burn,
cascading down flushed cheeks.
gently fades to regret,
as faces blur and disappear
into memory.
are swept into the wind,
drifting into an endless road.
Set me free.
