Love is a PhoenixI have seen nothing more tragic,
Than watching love die.
Enduring it’s painfully fade,
At stubbornly clings to life
The slow death of a love,
That’s filled with years of life.
Or the sudden snap,
As it blinks away in a lover’s eye.
It doesn’t go easy,
And it doesn’t go fast.
It goes out fighting,
Because love was made to last.
It is a brilliant flame,
Drowned in water.
It clings to the air,
With all its dying embers.
Yes, I have seen no sadder sight,
Than watching love as it dies.
But I have been blessed to gazed upon no otherworldly scene,
Than watching love be born again, anew and free.
All I Will Ever BeThe fear that I let hold me back
Buried me in my shame
Desperately I waited for a second chance
But that chance never came
Small and helpless I glare at fear
As he stands looking down at me
If I let him continue to lead my life
This is all I will ever be
The Devil's WayMake a bargain, sell your soul.
Condemn it to the deepest hole
That ever came of fact or thought.
For such a price ought can be bought.

Ocean's CallRays of the morning Sun tear the veil of mist
Ships slumber by the shores, waiting to be awoken
Ocean whispers while they slumber of her beauty unspoken
The wooden bodies by her waves are longfully kissed
The beacon closed her fiery eye, the Sun laid her to sleep
But the slumber of the ships will soon and slowly break
When the ships have spread their sails, then they'll be awake
Not because of the chiming bells, but by the Ocean's weep
And the arms of safe lands will not embrace them anymore
When they hearken Ocean's calls and her secrets hidden
One by one, they will leave their safest home - the shore
But perils lurk in dulcet calls of the Ocean so enchanting
Nevertheless, the ships will leave, for freedom is not forbidden
They shall sail forevermore, mesmerized by the eternal chanting
HeartHello, you’re new, shall I show you around?
You will feel at home here, I assure you,
You know this place, it is a sacred ground,
It may look cluttered but there’s room for two.
You will notice that there are just four rooms,
It seems ‘small’, but I choose to use ‘cosy’,
Left is cold, right is warm, by both life blooms,
Your bed is central, should you feel dozy.
You could stay forever, if it’s your will,
And I would like you to stay with me, please?
For now you are here to leave is to kill,
Keep my beating and fleeting heart at ease.
My Muse Has Left MeWhen she departs from my grace,
My palette dries in her wake,
Devoid of livelihood for now,
With dull words to fill my tray,
For now I paint a portrait,
With no wings of my own,
I am yet to be grown,
For she alone floats me high,
She alone carries the brush;
Strokes colours unto the night,
Filling the empty artist with,
Her sweet kiss of silvery light.
So I lay now in wait,
Under rainbows left gray,
To taste the honey of her life,
Dripping like nectar from rose-soft lips,
Pressed tight as a clamp unto mine,
Breathing into me a laced love letter,
Sighed: To the artist; From: The divine.
Can't believe I couldI can't believe I could fall for you,
but I can't get rid of an impression,
you would understand meanders of my soul,
and take me safely home.
I can't believe I could think of you,
and I can't accept I could like your view,
but when it comes to the truth - I do,
and this complication is incredibly new.
A breakthrough giving rise to an new age,
before I fall offstage.
Drifting among the Spheres...Descending the stairs to the top of the tower,
I stumbled and sank in the sky;
From Venus to Yuggoth I rose like a cork,
Through the Šther of Space I now fly...
From the light of Andromeda, crystalline-bright
To the uttermost distant of stars,
I must drift evermore on this eternal flight;
Farewell to Jupiter and Mars!
The Big Bang was merely one drop in the pail
Of Cosmoses unnumbered and vast...
As Infinity drowns in Eternity's depths,
So long will my great journey last.
Hadal OblivionFrom vastest depths of the forgetfulness,
The wail of the banished memories
Resounds, bouncing off invisible walls of nothingness,
And their painful intensity – sonance, greatly varies.
Oh, millions of darkest memories cast out
To oblivion, gently caressing them and yet...
They are starving; on the edge of life; bleeding out.
Although kept alive in emanation of agony, grief and hate.
Many want to banish those shards
of their lives. In the end - banishing themselves.
Stripped of those shards of glass, containing memories,
We are nothing – especially not humans. Without identity,
We may find ourselves lost in the overwhelming wor
The broken cupThe broken cup does not signify much,
Other than I dropped it
and I ought to clean it up.
It is not an allegory
for my last relationship;
Just a gift from a friend
From which I liked to sip-
And there's coffee on the floor,
In the carpet, down my dress.
Does it have to be a metaphor
For me to be distressed?
Why can't we just drop
A damned cup of damned coffee,
Without it being a brooding realisation
Or a life-epiphany?
Just scaredYour words were scaring me,
What can i say?
Whatever it is, is nothing to stay,
Let me walk for that i shall,
I wont ever even be found.
ArtistWhat skill with your hand you do lightly draw,
connecting lines to form dazzling dreams,
without being able to make a flaw.
Sparks fly in your magic, persistant eyes,
creating a new world in your image,
with confidence that reaches new highs.
Your efforts always seem unrewarded,
the public turning a cold, blind eye,
with nothing to keep your ego fed.
But what dif'rent message is seen in scribes?
Nothing but a meaningless textbook here.
A school's reading has no creative vibes.
A generation that does not read out,
only wants to see words in the pictures,
though there are those who read Poe's works about.
Though literature can on
The Imperfect LineWritten by Josiah Shockency (JCS)
Life is an imperfect line,
We all have ups and downs,
Positives and negatives,
And even smiles and frowns…
It’s a pleasure to be born,
And your life’s a treasure,
But there are stains that won’t budge,
While having all pleasure…
ANGER! DEPRESSION! SADNESS!
Life, what is life anyway?
With all this love and hate,
Mixed together into one,
A huge stain on your plate…
JEALOUSY! STRESS FROM MADNESS!
With bullies in life of school,
Mugs and thugs in cold streets,
With enemies that lurk on,
Seeking for one’s defeats,
FEELING IGNORED! LOSING HOPE!
Bills to pay, mone
Sexual AwakeningMy heart kept pumping
But it drowned in its blood
Waiting for someone
To save it from its flood
Yeah, I did that once
Now my patience is dead
I waited and waited
As my heart just bled
Now my patience is dead!
Now I paint the town red
With that sexy new paintbrush
I just met instead
To rephrase what I said
I paint it in my head
When I picture the masterpiece
We can create in my bed
I’m awaken by perfect chaos
Of tranquil vividness
I believe that this is the outcome
Of my restlessness
In silent chaos I’ll hunt down
The prey of exquisiteness
I’ll lure them in
As I prepare to entrap
Then go for the kill
A Pretty Little Box For YouI ~hehe~ have a little box
I think it's about the right height
To fit little you inside
And shut you in there tight
So when you feel you're ready
I'll be waiting ~hehe~ in my place
To make you a box so pretty
I'll make it frame your little face
It would be so fun to measure you
But little one do not fear ~hehe~
What a sad thing it would be
Should laughter disappear
~Hehe~ I will tell you anything
There's many things that I know
All I ask in return ~hehehehe~
Is to make me laugh, you know
It's the greatest gift, it is
In the whole entire world
Laughter's the best medicine
I am ~hehe~ sure you've heard
But when your laughter decides to cease
I have this box for you
And ~hehe~ If you really want
I'll ~hehehehe~ make you two
i can't imagine this world
Without smiles, laughter, cheer
What a sad thing it would be ~hehe~
Should laughter disappear....
PallbearerQuote from taboo
testaments, old and new,
freeing an honest prisoner or two.
Pallbearer, carry me in,
marry my spirit against my will,
teach me to sit and always be still.
Cry out sincere
sedatives, unused and unclear,
feeling tenuous towards these things you hold so dear.
Pallbearer, take me in,
make me sound overrated and just,
teach to me matters that I too much discuss.
Pray for us sinners, pray that we may forget.
Revive a melancholy
eyes aren't wet
for me, but for the rest.
Eager EyesEager eyes face upward,
looking nowhere below.
Lay one false step before them
and they won't even know,
passing by right turns toward
many winding roads.
That boy with a cold
and that girl in the snow,
they're perfect for each other but they don't even know.
That singer with curls
and that girl at the show,
they're perfect for each other but they don't even know.
They might pass each other by
with their eyes hanging low.
Never to remember any faces,
walking along at many paces,
because they all have different places to go.
Something Like a LifeMarch marches on,
past April to May.
I check for change in my pocket
to my finger's dismay.
I'm broke, but not broken,
just prey to the fray,
living something like a life.
June journeys on,
July does this, too.
Something happened in August
and I haven't the foggiest clue,
but I still remember you,
telling me to do
something with my life.
I'd recall what transpired if I could remember.
January burnt me
like a leaf in an ember,
and February just reminded me
that I had a life.
I Haven't Seen YouIt's been a million years
stretched out across nine months,
and it shakes me in
a way I've never been shaken.
All the jabs and the jeers,
crying jokes without laughter
that leave my mind feeling
It's been a long time looking
without having seen.
In retrospect, I suspect
it was best we never met.
We're just cooking
up an image
our expectations could never meet.
Our expectation is our defeat,
and I don't want to lose just yet.
Shadowbox PuppetsMemories of puppet strings,
granting life to rose petals
that haven't bloomed.
I remember a lover's day,
it cuts deep, a barren hole,
with shadows to keep me
safe and warm.
You covered yourself with what seemed right,
holding calloused hands
and pressed for time.
With unwilling fears,
like puppet strings
and puppet dreams,
you read the books beyond the page
in foreign colors
between black and white.
Mental Constructs: A DirgeColliding in-between lost and found,
leave me biting
Reciting words from wretchéd sounds
on which mental constructs
were already hung;
I'm left, life and death subsiding,
biting my left lung,
searching for a breath that's hiding,
but it's me that it's hiding from.
Goodnight Enigmatic SongShe was the song you hear and, at first blush, don't like.
Well, you don't know how you feel about it so you keep listening in an attempt to discover how exactly you feel and then you reach the end of the song and you realize, you don't like it; you love it.
That was Grace.
She was my coworker and she was my friend.
We carpooled together, I drove and she slept most of the way.
"Don't get much sleep at night, do you?" I asked her, catching those drooping lids mid-descent.
She looked out the window streaked with rain; it spoke in percussive touches filling the car with quiet overcast conversation.
I felt the warmth of her smile in the corner of my eye. The blur of her hand reached at the window to feel the cold of the droplets.
"When I was a girl, I used to race these. I thought it was funny the fat ones always won," she giggled and I imagined her as a little girl in the passenger seat then, legs too short to reach so kicking, and hair messed in the bac
