The way water rushed down the gnarls of your spine
the way your body submit to the ground like a dirty valentine
It’s hard not to want to make you mine
It’s hard not to ask for a love, your kind
more whine, less wine
you be mine, do you mind?
I have no passion to fashion a confession,
I rather a knife to kill the tension
this feverish blow it’s for you to caution
this gibberish slur when my tongue’s in motion
Just pull a blade from my chest of drawers
be in total darkness, you grope for its edge
Just steal my heart in your grievous plunders
A war you wage, a lie to stage.
Push me into the ocean, burn me for getting wet
How do I crawl out from under fifty shades of sad?
My fingers wither in grievance,
recedes to the back of my nails,
boils the strands of my veins
holding the brim of this toxic space
The biting thirst of an ineffable legacy,
I still have no luxury of its taste.
The crumbs of my conviction no longer hold the faintest of flavours.
The frivolousmost jesters playing the barest of blames
The curtain of change is set in flames
Not even a consolation, you hand me chains
not flowers, for shame.
I’m not one to speak, I was born to break.
Maybe God has better plans for me
and maybe in this case, the sand won’t meet the sea.
Trust you to handle me with care
Thank you for the time you had to spare
No vendetta to vindicate, it was all written
across tombs of stones
between winter’s bones
at the cradle of the
first star to my foremost
Save tonight, even if it means letting me go.
Your distant smile
like I’m on the verge of vile.
Cut me up along the veins
your kisses erode in toxic rain.
Why won’t they let me love you?
They rather see me in shades of blue.
of tattered seams, mend up with glue.
of hanging clouds, in grayish hue.
force a smile, crack a denial.
retreat my advances, dial down to mild.
cut me open, my tears into Nile.
no use for seeds, this nest’s futile.
I wish you knew. I wish you were too.
why won’t you,
let me love you?
Morning leaks from within the cracked blur
hung up in perplexed thoughts, unfamiliar.
nightfalls made way for storm’s a comin’
meandered from my veins to the ashtray’s ring
A streak of reliefs to summer’s solace
If we could be together on lovers’ space.
Little one with grave for days,
élan is ours if we start today.
Thoughts elope on a forsaken highway
dusky hallucinations lead the way
Faint lights , faint hearts
Be still , but still
leaping and racing , burning trails.
If we meet a desert along the way,
with black sands as curtain coasts
for a lone black rose that matters most,
keep close, stay close.
Lines drawn on sand , you cannot stray.
Two souths don’t converge, we’ve sinned our ways.
Pluck the rose, quit the chase.
Spill your confessions, keep the change.
How his eyes gazed at yours
I wish they were mine
Your paces so fast I’m losing trust
of my own footsteps, I’m surely last.
Just a stranger now, no longer by your side
but here to his left, this ain’t that right.
Your voice I hear, faint murmurs as they wind
Nine spaces apart, you’re just two rows behind
I’ll cry tonight, then pretend I’m alright
The petal’s torn, he took the first bite
Bittermost taste, I took the next bite
Made me an addict, you’re my drug
and now I’m addicted , you’ve gone for a run
Listen to the silence, we might find some luck
and maybe you’ll notice, I’m right in front.
