I am fading away

December 14, 2009

So I returned to the radiance

that brought my life hope

and a new way to see

and a new way to cope

*

With wide-opened wings

for my greedy heart

Alight like a star

while I fell apart

*

I am fading away

I see you no more

December 14, 2009

You dropped a kiss

like fall’s crimson leaf

cold and sore

to land upon my cheek

*

Before the dark hall

where scion love silhouettes

with my heart in the sky

I burst into pirouette

*

I see you no more

Alone on the sidewalk

December 14, 2009

Like a night with no moon

asleep without dreams

a doom-born maiden

came to undertake me

*

A ruptured recollection

but love like a rapture

I never said a word

left only numb thereafter

*
Left alone on the sidewalk

When we’re together

December 12, 2009

When we’re together

The moon and the stars

Will be jealous

Because they are so far apart

From each other

And so far away

From you

Noise

December 3, 2009

You all know;

it’s no use to deny.

It’s what I do,

I can’t say why

when or how

I lost my mind.

Do me a favor,

would you be so kind?

Forget the lifetime

I was blind

and made my limbs

a perfect sine

to try and distract

so you wouldn’t find

the shallow sea

where I tried to dive,

but not to play

and not to hide

but to drown out

the noise inside.

If you still cared

October 28, 2009

You could forget my letters

at home for a week

When I write to you

when I cannot speak

You could dance with him

though you know you shouldn’t

And though you know

I wish you wouldn’t

You could leave me with

but one aloof wave

While delivering unto others

a delighted embrace

You could miss my gifts

with swift dismissal

And respond to my spark

with a listless fizzle

But

If I knew you still cared

I’d be alright.

*

If I knew you cared

I would sleep

at night.

Something

September 11, 2009

It’s not your fault

It’s mine

For wanting something

I’d never find

*

Something is wrong

Something amiss

no one

deserves this
