Rainforest floor

From the sky it falls
As do many others
Where will it land?
Only calculated formulas can tell

As it is suspended
And hurled down
It is confined and alone
Not bound to another

Some will land in an ocean
Others lakes, ponds, creeks, puddles
Even into earth beneath the trees
Left to find another source similar

A journey short for some
And tedious and suffocating for others
To be hurled into acceptance
Or to travel until it is found

When we splatter from above
And bind with another
What will you wish fo
An ocean of options
Or a rainforest floor

My Words

Burn upon my heart 
Your words of venom 
Lash upon my soul 
Your thoughts of ice 
Stab upon my mind 
Your emotions of chaos 
  
My pen flows from chaos 
Controlled ink of the heart 
My parchment sliced from my mind 
Untouchable by mortal venom 
My warmth to thaw your ice 
Thick and bound to your soul 
  
Yet my soul 
Consumed in all chaos 
Not a hint of ice 
In any corner of my heart 
Veins flow free from venom 
Unleashing the will of my mind 
  
Unbreakable is my mind 
Beauty is my soul 
Unchanged by your venom 
Grace in the chaos 
Which surrounds my heart 
Guarding from you ice 
  
My hate for your ice 
May sometimes blind my mind 
Your bitter heart 
Your empty soul 
Crashing in chaos 
And dripping in venom 
  
How you drown in venom 
How you suffocate in ice 
Swallowed whole in chaos 
Darkness engulfed mind 
Blindness endangered soul 
And emptiness in place of you heart 
  
My words of chaos, flowing from my soul 
Untouched by your venom, and lonely heart 
They will melt the ice, which controls your mind

Lullaby love

All I hear 
All I see
Is not meant for me
All I want
All I know
Is I cannot let you go

Driving forward
Moving back
Only one thing that I lack
Hope is clinging 
Holding tight
I wish you were here tonight
Dry my eyes
Hide the pain
Overwhelming to contain

For all I hear 
All I see
Is not meant for me
All I want
All I know
Is I cannot let you go


Memories set
Heart is bound
Now all must be drowned
Keep your distance
When so near
No emotions can appear
Burning love
Hidden flame
Love is such an evil game

All I hear 
All I see
Is so perfect for me
All I want
All I know
Is how it’s meant to go

Unmet Soulmate

Head rested upon the pane
Eyes watching the drops
Smacking upon the glass
How they slide down
As if caressing 
Yet mirrored is the image
Upon my face
Where are you?

My body rests upon the bench
Eyes gaze at stars
Bright upon the dark sky
How they shimmer above
As if trying to find the other
Mirrored is their loss
Upon my being
Where are you?

My fingers rest upon the ivory
Eyes reading the music
Beauty upon silence
How the notes sound
As if reaching out
Mirrored is their need
Upon my heart
Where are you?

My soul rests upon time
Eyes searching for you
Pressing upon your soul
How the hope brews
As if I remember 
Mirrored memories of dreams
Upon my soul remains the imprint
Who are you?

Broken Glass

Do you hear the horn of the train? 
And the pitter patter of rain?
Listen close do you hear a sound?
Only silence, will she be found?

Who is fragile, who is of strength
How can one know another’s length?
Blind to the mask which hides her tears
Binding her to demons and fears
A fake light remains as she falls
Even while her broken heart stalls
Darkness commences in her soul
Blood loss spirals out of control
What an alluring crimson paint
Overworked artist starts to faint 

Do you hear the horn of the train? 
And the pitter patter of rain?
Listen close do you hear a sound?
Only silence, will she be found?

Why do some dance falsely with death? 
Unable to force their last breath
Her unspoken words of pureness
Soaked deeply in her loneliness
The jagged line of her escape
Leaves the unsuspecting agape
Drawn up on the median vein 
Just a few more moments of pain
Eyes flutter and seconds pass
Then gently falls the broken glass

Do you hear the horn of the train? 
And the pitter patter of rain?
Listen close do you hear a sound?
Only silence, will she be found?
Then gently falls the broken glass

Master Puppeteer

Can you comprehend the surveillance?
Recognize the Cyclopean that is manipulation
Suffer as fingertips osculate the doll 
Your existence in cadence with its animation
Answers painted upon the walls of elucidation 
Yet enveloped within a sadistic façade 

If only mortification was your apparatus 
Feasible would be your liberation
To fracture your damnation of kismet
Your oblivious disposition maintains insurance
Of my authentic ipseity concealment 
Penetration of veracity remains abeyant 

You confine my chassis to a line
An unhindered, forward faced, entity 
Blasphemy, impudence, and your curse
 Liquescent, manumitted, and your marquis
Flashbacks of lifetimes past, occurred moments ago
Destiny of a soul, iota of my jest

Your obstinate and averse species
Enslaved to stigmas of my amusement 
My merited eponyms you endow to others
Fate, karma, spirit, soul mate, life and death
All components, all puppets in my phenomenon 
For I am the Master Puppeteer, I am Time

Cracked

Rooted to the Earth 
Your stare unmoving 
Infatuated with mirrored beauty 
That ignores your worship 
/ 
Cursed to your destined place 
Paralyzed by desire 
Loneliness engulfs the heart 
Punishment for those you broke 
/ 
Sculptured resemblance alongside 
A hand gripping your psyche 
Dissolving similar to your physique 
Fractured egg ventilates your ego 
/ 
There a flower blooms 
Lesson imparted by the gods 
Conceited are not blessed with love 
Thus the metamorphosis of Narcissus 
 
Poem based of painting by 
Metamorphosis of Narcissus (1937). Salvador Dalí

Video Game Hero

FYI: I justed wanted to try some onomatopoeia, my first time really using it.


Thump thump thump
My feet upon the stone

Ba-boom Ba-boom Ba-boom
My heart as I run

Clank clank clank
Enemy armor upon the stone

Huff huff huff
Enemy breathing as they run

Shing!
My blade unsheathed

Clash!
Goes our swords

Thud 
Falls his head

Thump thump thump
My feet upon the stone


Ba-boom ba-boom ba-boom
My heart as I run

Squeal
Goes the princess

Smooch
Upon my cheek

Da da dun da da dun da da dun
Goes the end credits

Cobblestone path

I met him the other day 
Passed by on the cobblestone 
Between the graves  

Though he dare not look up 
I could hear the sobs 
As wet drops fell 
    
 His draped black cloak 
Tattered and flowing 
Billowing fog in the cemetery 

Chills ran down my spine 
Yet his sadness warmed me 
 No joy came in this profession 

My sky blue eyes 
Connected with his sockets 
Life in lifelessness 

Embracing the poor soul 
Feeling his scythe  
Pressed upon my back 

I knew no fear 
Only the truth 
As we walked 
Down that cobblestone path

Sister's Spirit

As we ran through the fields 
Our childish conversations 
Oblivious to the future 
  
Rolling in freshly cut hay 
Giggling at our imagination 
Free from the world's burdens 

Your stunning hazel hair 
Blown in the farm air 
Still untouched by foreign product 

Eyes that reflected 
Both our parents 
Filled with hope 

Days passed, we grew 
Sisterhood and friendship  
Unbroken by fate 

Soon your smile faded 
You hid in the shadows 
Forlorned by others 

Yet your grace remained 
Your kind heart still pure 
Shined through darkness 

My goofy sister prevailed 
Your beauty continued to grow 
Untarnished by sickness 

Years flew by 
Laughs were rarer 
As the mirror tore us apart 

Somehow you were blind 
To your natural allurement 
Unaware of what you possessed 

Sickness struck you 
Life drained away 
Yet your soul still genuine 

Your elegance always a fantasy 
Your glamor unchanged 
From childish days to grown age 

I will always love you 
Miss our naive days 
Cherish our time togehter, though rare 

I hope that one day 
You will know that 
You've been beautiful 
Since you graced the Earth 

You may never know 
Or understand how I feel 
But your my angel in disguise 
And my magnificent little sister.
