Silent sadness subdues soft skin; mournful streams of one grief-stricken,
Amazonian agony and avalanching awe; along ardent avenues, a lonely boy I saw,
Dying in his dungeon of duty and despair, duelling demons in a dampened dull lair.
Eyes the only entrance, or exit, to existence; enigmatically evading everyone’s persistence;
Youthful enthusiasm, long since gone; yearning for the only one who sings his song;
Energy evaporates, with each torrential tear; elegantly enticing his loved one near;
Subdued sorrow, no lip shall quiver; sadness seen only, through a silent salt river.

Could I not see such ugly drawn out choices.
Hollow I feel such nothing for people it is fear that feeds me.
Alone in this forsaken world with nothing to accept.
Order is such pain that it is nothing but chains.
Souls that bare nothing but lost cause to confusion is such utter mistakes.

Air filled with white lies;
Seems like snowflakes are falling.
However, it's ash.

A path of endless sorrow
paved by the destruction in my wake.
I can see no bright, beautiful tomorrow
that's not a kind of future I make.
An ocean of endless tears
flowing from the hearts the cry out in pain.
Their anguished cries bring forth my inner fears
which drag me under with a dark heavy chain.
A tale of endless woe
full heartaches and immorality.
These are the seed I sow
grown by my faulty personality
Memories of endless regret
the ones that can't simply be erased.
I promised I would never forget,
all the lives I have disgraced.
The ashes of a finished flame
extinguished by my devastating crime.
Before, it was all a sick little game
but now, I'm completely out of time.

Even though I read tribute poems at your memorial service I still
Can’t believe that you both died aged just 19 and 20.
Staring me in the face when I open my cupboard are the plastic beakers
That you and your brother drank from when you played at our house -
All it took to lose your lives was powerful Ecstasy tablets
Such a tragedy that we will never ever get over …
You are always in my thoughts Jacques and Torin.
Tribute to Jacques and Torin Lakeman who tragically died in December 2014

You Left me for Suicidal?
I Loss you because you say it was my Fault?
How dare you!
You Left me!
I did everything for you,
I made Everything for you,
But why how could you?
My Heart feels like had been Crushed by a Truck!
When you Died!
When I Lost you!
When I Mop Everyday just because I was Missing you!
and it was all your Fault!
My Life was Ruined
Like it was ended
and It was like I`m weeping
since the day I was loosing
Now would you Understand since you left me?
I can`t express all my Feeling `cause your Missing
and I`m like just Standing
and you`re Enjoying
Here I am,If u can see
All Ruined up wait `till we meet
It would take me 87 years `till we meet again
Now I think you`re Happy
Seeing my Pain all this Years
I wish to see you again
To make it all Go away where I could say Pain
"You left me for Suicidal"

I have never felt so ecstatic anymore like your touch
On my back I laid, looking into the fading light of the moon
The melody from the creaking sound of the wooden bench
Mixed with the feeble sound of my mourn
The skies are blue and beautiful
But my eyes are reddish and tearful
To the moon my eyes glues
It is the exact place and time we always lies
It feels like yesterday, time really flies
So sad you left without leaving me a note
for only that we could vote
My hands always yearns for your gentle curves
And my eyes longed to fall on your gentle moves
My lips mimics the song we use to sing
But my mind has been casted afar from that ring
I search everywhere, even the jungle
With no living soul for me to mingle
Even though I was laying on the bench
My heart travels the world, doing the search
To the moon I asked, "when you will be back?"
And what great tides will bring such a luck?

P is the third part of Expense, the acrostic series.......
Practically, my cup is half full instead of half empty, but I am proven
wrong! I’m swimming in the river of my emotional debt mixed with other
distinctive debts…doused in drastic dread! Is this reality in a nut shell or is
this frankly living hell? Where does your high spirits truly dwell? Keep in
clean, you gutter mind of a foolish man in PRISON for committing HURTFUL
crimes – he has to pay up so much – his expense is SKY-HIGH, but he is
not shy to pay it up and he longs to fly again with un-tattered wings, but
fails greatly due to HIS poor decision making…who knows why he did the
things he did, which leads to his ultimate consequence – his absence of
life…the aftershocks of his death still haunts the prison to the extreme-est
of the extreme! He haunts and taunts all that come in – once you’re in, you
never, ever come out no matter what! My noggin is runnin’ wild in circles
and my mind is whirling like a seething storm that’s body-quaking me…
controlling me like a steel-made robot…these particular pangs of regrets
makes my guilty conscience overflow with low self-esteem and anguish…
lamentation has fallen upon us all! We all must stand tall…remember to
brave & hop over our obstacles optimistically and assertively like a horse
during his training for the biggest race he has ever trampled into! Do you
have any clue what I’ve been through? My notions that are spinning around
in my brain is like the vegetables, water & the spices, mixing well & swell
into a stew, restoring peace to my verse…Is my life a gift or a curse? Is my
life overflowing with mirth? I wish I can give a portion of it on Earth to
avoid making destructive actions…I need several tragedies in reverse to
settle me down and make complete my fulfillments! Deplorable Reality’s
strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey
dens or hives! I’ve been losing my mind since the day of my birth and so on
and so forth! Need I say more? I have so many research projects to
explore! There is so much GOLD to find! Maybe I’m just a boy, tattered,
torn and sadly, blind! I hope you don’t mind, Lord – forgive me, oh Lord of
Accord! I need to just forget and forgive the past & move forward in the
guiltless future! I NEED TO RUN THE EXTRA MILE LIKE A RUNNER, REACHING
TO THE FINISH LINE! Give me the strength to move on! Deplorable Reality’s
strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey
dens or hives! I WANT TO RUN THE EXTRA MILE LIKE A RUNNER, REACHING
TO THE FINISH LINE AND I’M FEELIN’ FINE WITH MY HEART, POUNDING
WITH DREAD-LESS AND UNEXPIRED DETERMINATION…NOT EVEN TIRED….
OH no, not at all – I run with my pack of wolves and I’m as sturdy as a
wall, giving it my all…

I need reasons to myself
And maybe you could help
Animals die for freedom
Humans cry for wealth

Release me from the chain's which you have wrapped around my life
Allow me to breathe once again and to feel what it is like to own my own body
Provide me with the hope that my soul will one day listen to the cries of my heart and forgive you
Emotionally I am broken because you touched me when you shouldn't have and didn't care that I didn't want you to but physically I walk around with a smile on my face as though I am happy to be alive.

S-eptember fifteenth morn,
H-azy night has passed by;
E-vening shadows are gone,
R-ays are shining in the sky.
R-ight there in the meadow
Y-ews are evergreen;
L-eaves of grass are swaying in the one beautiful scene.
P-en and pad of mine
A-re both conspirators;
S-oothing sentences written
C-omfort you in gentle force.
U-se the special moment
A-s a tool to ease your mind;
L-et your heart and soul leave the sorrow far behind.

If I only knew why
Fog covers, our future that's to come
Irrecoverable, are the years that have been lost
Optimistically I wish, for things to get better
Non-respondent is what you are, when asked what is the problem
Lifelessness is the state, our love dwells in
Yourself is all you care about
Kindhearted, were my intentions and expectations
Negativity drowning our souls
Emotionally tattered and torn
Willingness, from you to show love has departed
Worthless, is the way you make me feel
Heartbreak, is what you have caused
You chose hatred over happiness, and I don't know why

S-orrow will surely end,
U-ntil it's nowhere in sight;
S-adness of the shadow
A-ims to fade into the
E-ven though the windchill comes,
S-unshine will show up;
C-oal clouds will turn white,
A-s the cold raindrops stop.
L-onely twilight twenty-first of May fades,
A-n early beacon ascends;
N-o more tears will fall,
T-ill the sorrow
