Outside Of Our Universe

I can see a sunrise
Hidden inside your eyes
I can feel an ocean tide
Ripple across your chest

Detour from a heart attack
I’d walk to there and back
Detour from a heart attack
You could turn it all to black

And through those eyes
I can see everything
It’s so close to me
Reach out and grab the sunset
I’d never let go of you
Forever’s not everything
When I’m with you

I let go of losing you
To reach for your hand
This chemistry of ours
Is on high demand

Detour from a heart attack
I’d walk to there and back
Detour from a heart attack
You could turn it all to black

And through those eyes

I can see everything

It’s so close to me

Reach out and grab the sunset

I’d never let go of you

Forever’s not everything

When I’m with you

I’d let go for you,
Fall beyond below
I’d sacrifice myself for you
Don’t walk away and go

The door clatters to a close as you walk out of my life.

Heat Stroke Dreaming Mirages And Fleeting Lust



I’ve been writing poems all these weeks about him in my own cryptic way. I dreamed about him yesterday that was the first time in five months, call me pathetic. You’re not the first. But I’m not dreaming about him, not the real him. I’m dreaming of that boy I never knew. The one in the corner of the class room that startled my heart’s beat even when every boy had cooties. It still alarms me that he has this control over me, making me fall in and out of my words. I know him now, the true him. He’s not nearly as attractive as the mysterious boy I used to dream of. But when he tells me the truth, I feel myself thrusted head first back in and out of my words. I’m terrified that these fingers will fail and my lips won’t emit even one attractive sound. He terrifies me like no one else. I don’t like the feeling that someone could command me without muttering a word. I could take my life for him.

He doesn’t give a second thought to me, if I’m ever fortunate enough to earn a first thought. I’m the fleeting in his mind. She was permanent and he broke her heart. What am I to expect? A new born man? A love only the best romance novelists could put into words? It won’t come. He won’t save me. But still, I try my best to be beautiful. I try my best to earn more than what is handed to me. Nothing. Give me one thing God, I beg of you. Grant me his love. Grant me his heart. And I’d give you my last breath. It isn’t worth much, but on the borderline cliff falling it is my last word. It is you. Because “I love…” isn’t worth nearly as much as “I love you.”




I’m silent, what am I to say? If you understand, could you tell me? I need the one to three’s of falling out of love. I can’t breathe under these conditions. I can’t live without these confessions. I don’t need a common ground; I’d move to yours. Asphyxiate my love. I’d breathe in your hopelessness, sadness, depression. I could counter the silence if you just spoke those words I’d die to hear. Tell me, just tell me what I want to hear. Do you understand? Understand me, please. Because I’m not breathing anymore and I need your lips on mine to push all these horrible thoughts out of my mind and off my lips. I’m so concentrical in the way that I can’t stray off this hopeless path to you. You make me numb like a dose of Novocaine. You drive me insane like defect in my binary code. I’m a machine that I can’t escape. I’m a death you can’t detach yourself from. You’re you and him and everything I’m breathing.

Love Isn’t Worth A Penny, You Couldn’t Buy It With A Dime

Feigning hurt for a billion dollars
Did you make the big screen?
This is the art of life
Fall apart to the light
It’s not dark yet.

Stop and repeat.

You don’t understand
I won’t explain
Four hours worth of
“Stop faking this!”
Do you hate what I’ve become?

Stop and repeat.

We’re like a broken record
Running over the same
Cracks and ditches all over again
I’m not sure,
What do you want me to say?
I would say it all to you.

Stop and repeat.
It’s not fair that I can’t have you.
Forever isn’t what I need
Just bring me back
We could have escaped this world.

Love Isn’t Worth A Penny, You Couldn’t Buy It With A Dime

Summer Romance (Once In A Lifetime)

Stop playing games for once
How much can your sleeve fit?
I’m done with stepping on feet
Every thing’s become a secret
I hoped this state was just temporary
But I always judge you wrong
You’re like a drug in my veins
Ripping apart the vital organs
Stabbing at my heart
I can’t get over you
When you’re so deep in my veins
I want to stop breathing you in
Tell me, once and for all
Just settle this and put me to rest
I haven’t had a decent night’s sleep
This whole lifetime
Maybe I’ll never let you go
So just cut me loose
Stop tying this rope tighter around my neck
Around my heart and my wrists.
For once, prove me wrong
Show me you weren’t lying
When you said I was your “once in a lifetime”
Because I told you the same
And I’ll never regret that, this, you.
A lifetime’s a lifetime
You’re my only one
My only poison and you’re killing me.
