Not the scratches on her knees Not the bruises on her thighs It was the way she crossed her t’s It was the way she dotted her i’s
Love is Love is Love is Love! One million birds And not one dove, Came to earth From up above. Is love Is love Is love Not lovely? Two billion faces And not one ugly, Wishing the same thing: “Please don’t judge me.”
Yellow elephants With pink polka-dotted hair Suspended in air
Take off Your pearl necklace And Kiss me, goddammit! Stick your golden coated Tongue All the way Down my throat, And Fill my stomach With Diamonds.
What was I thinking I should have ripped out your heart When I had the chance
We the people Aren’t really people At all But this golden girl Could sell a book Teaching people to fall She the person Is barely a person At all But that golden girl Bleeds blood Just like us all
The Only Two Things I Can Promise You:
Some people will always be mean So be nice to them One day you will die But don’t forget how to live
In a perfect world
foxhound314: In a perfect world I’d make you mine In a perfect world The sun would always shine In a perfect world I wouldn’t waste my time To write you a single line To make you feel this rhyme and I know your kind attracted to the crime In a perfect world I wouldn’t make you mine In a perfect world I wouldn’t have to resist Because in a perfect world you wouldn’t exist
What if I told you That we’re not the good guys If it wasn’t for you I would hate to see the sunrise If it wasn’t for you I would still be in disguise If it wasn’t for you I would be eating up those lies What if I told you That we’re not the bad guys
I followed your trail Of gumdrops you dropped They led me to a black hole In your head I saw you inside out Then outside in Again I saw who you were And then who you are You haven’t come far You haven’t come far
Mother, won’t you sin? Please don’t get into heaven. You’ll be all alone.
She said: “This too shall fade So I’ll live in a cage With a million photographs Barricading me in. I’m only getting older It’s getting harder to move these boulders So I’ll live my life Behind these metal bars” I said: “Well that won’t get you far.” “No. But that won’t get me hurt.” “True. But what good...
I'm Not Crazy
I’m telling the truth; The walls were speaking to me. The walls were breathing.
I slipped a chill pill In your cup of salty tears Let’s see how this goes
I asked him: “If I shot you And rushed you to the hospital Before you died Would you call me a hero?” He replied: “No, I would call you heartless.” … “Well, your “God” is heartless then.”
You and I Are just as worthless as coal Or so I’ve been told And with all These lectures We’ve been quite under pressure But don’t go dark on me Instead start shinin’ ‘Cause in no time at all We should turn into diamonds
I’m getting good at Shutting the door quietly Behind loud people
The Way You Taste
I can’t remember The way you taste when alone Though I wish I could
Sunshine and Rain
Define feeling “fine” Sunny days and rainy nights I feel quite alright
But things are just things People will always be mean It’s all a routine
Open up your ears I will tell you a secret Just don’t repeat it
If Looks Could Kill
If looks could kill Then just give me a glance If Goliath had a gun David wouldn’t have stood a chance
Won’t catch me sleeping Believe me; I’m a liar So lie next to me
Grinding of your teeth Is a symphony, for me While I fall asleep
Not A Lover
I couldn’t write A poem about love Because I know No such thing I’ve never met a woman That made me want to Look past her breasts And into heart Or listen above her heart To the vibrations That come out of her throat And into my ears I’ve never met a pretty woman With an even prettier heart But hearts are only pretty in drawings I couldn’t write A poem...
Bloody Mary Let’s get married And scare everyone That adores their mirror
I have a habit of Reading the end of poems Before the beginning … But I don’t jump to conclusions Somedays I find myself waiting For someone to tell me It’s worth the wait … Even if it’s not
Nothing’s ever free The air costs too goddamn much (So)medays I don’t breathe.
She was the long pause right in-between ”I” and “You” but she was no “Love”
If the trees could talk They would speak in tongue twisters Blowing us away
I am not a warrior. I am war. I’m the king of the jungle. Hear me roar! Watch me beat my chest. I don’t want your respect but I demand your attention. Am I the only one who sees life as more than one dimension? Am I the only one who sees were just another wasted invention? Just another honorable mention. But I’m done pretending, and I’m done defending a country that kills...
She was winter The cold weather The snow And we played And we laughed We loved And March came Not quick enough She stayed She was winter But now it’s March And she stayed I want to swim She wanted to sled And she stayed She was winter But now it’s March So I left for the warmth
We’re more scared to live than we are to die, though we’ve stared fear right in the eyes. We play russian roulette with the wings of butterflies, but we know the truth lies in our own minds. A sane friend is no friend of mine.
Monsters don’t sleep under my bed anymore I sleep with my mattress touching the floor
Why would I do that if I don’t want too? Why look at them, when I just want you?
Plant the trees, but chop ‘em down faster We’re all quite the natural disaster
“See you later.” She mumbled The universe crumbled. Later was too far away; the ladder was too far away but maybe if he grabbed the clock he could turn “Later” into “Today” The weather would feel like May The clouds would be blue not grey if he grabbed the clock and turned “Later” into “Today” but the ladder was too far away So he stopped...
Happy Birthday to me!
