Everything that Never Was

 
i can feel it dissipating from every clogged pore on my body never a timeframe more wasted has this dismal nothing taken all of what was left from these ashes i shall be rebuilt only to stare back at that reflection to see nothing more than what i feared my soulless vessel will be ceaseless there is nothing more grotesque more monotonous more beautiful than what you could never take what was never born shall never die. Joseph B. Garcia

Transgressing Realities

 
all i wanted was a kingdom that stretched as far as my eye could see not adorned in gold or fancy flowers just lost love and memories i've lost, and probably always will i feel im growing ever wiser even as dreadful time stands still there is that man behind the mirrored glass and i can feel his stare pierce through this elusive dream im chasing i dont ever want to reach i see me standing there in shock with everything thats sincerely me that hurricane in my stomach swirling more than the angriest of seas only to open the behemoth of a door and plunge head and mind into oblivion ill never know which is worse knowing the end or having a false beginning theres a price tag etched in my head and the whole world has been bidding these lungs and my time may be borrowed but every struggling breath shall be forever mine my body hangs in the gallows yet the world is which swings with the breeze all i wanted was my kingdom that we built, you and me.

Pretense

from this hatred and negativity my skin crawls onto the floor i am broken but not shattered i wont let this depleted hope be the death of me i will rise back from nothing with full wind in my sails these coasts will never skip these hollow eyes this fragrance of life will find refuge in these nostrils i put my heart up one more time its better there than in my stomach it has been beaten to almost nothing filled with incapacitating lies just open your eyes thats what this world tries to tell me just open your eyes why cant you just see the beauty they say i cant handle the responsibility i cant swing it in this reality the one that they have chosen not the same that we were born into its right here for the taking but through this neglect comes the heartbreak all thats left is to ask questions do you even own a mirror i see this earth on its wedding day nothing short of inspirational my breath becomes the wind my lungs cant find a use anymore.
