PleiadesOnce there were a thousand wishes falling from the sky,But when I tried to claim them, my words would not comply.Choked upon and gone unspoken they fell to Earth to die,Unformed and nameless lovers' tokens wasted with my sighs.Once there were a thousand stars that shone within your eyes,But now the wishes all were false and all the stars were lies.Once there were a thousand hopes hidden in your face.Now you are as dead as any rock from outer space.
MatchgirlI struck a match and watched it growInto an all consuming glow.Through the window, I discernedThe routes by which the heavens turned,and as the pyre grew in sizeReaching upward to the skies,All around stars fell like snowInto the ragged streets below.Blue and white, their blinding flameWhispered things I cannot name.I saw your soul within the dance.I saw it in the heavens flung.Burning like a thousand sunsIt fell and melted on my tongue.But now my words are numb and cold.What won't be heard can not be told.In the black between the stars,Is that the place that must be ours?where love once burned, it frozen, diesand only vacuum now survives.
CrashTrains of thought crashing,Yesterdays flashing by,I still don't know whyIt came in the night,This short flight to nowhere,To anywhere but here,But now I find an open mindThat's left behind yesterdayDisarrayed in your arms.Is it safe to sayThe part we play is small?Is it safe to sayThe part we play is allFor nothing?On quiet nights I am remindedOf how we're blinded by the world outside,Of how we hide within ourselvesA world that's filled with stars.No holds barred. We dream in solitude,Calamity crashing,Introspective intersectionsOf dawn and dusk.Then, merely a huskI'm left staring into blackness,Just clashing synapsesThat flash at random.Our hearts in tandemCould beat something betterThan this soliloquy,Sing out in splendor,Scratch our names in the dustSurrounding us,Shake the rust from our mettle.Don't let it settle,This whirling stardustBetween our worlds.Just let me crash again.
Sherlock's BeastFace value is the beast's skinStretched thin over conversational context,The do's and don'ts of polite society,Convention's muzzle, my dear Watson.Deeper in we see extendduplicitous differentialities. We deduce,Juxtaposed betwixt the 'tweens and twines,The twirling tines of truth,Those vicious teeth which biteThe hand that feedsAnd feed the mind that needsTo dark digestion.There in lies the lynchpin,What words will never tell,For the devil may well dwell in the detail,But his whispers sound between them.
ButcherMeat before your knifeSkinned and waiting to be slicedLeft danglingHoping you will cut me down instead of up.With strokes both careless and preciseThe blood - the blood that stains your knife
I would have given you my life,But you have taken more.

Our WorldTonight we shall awakeAnd we'll feel better;While scars dictate out a eulogyBefore icicle stars drip a lakeOf blood and ink.And our life is scribedAnd our destiny transcribedUpon ozone highways ofA time swept letter.Tonight we shall smileAnd we'll be fine;While bones taunt us in penuryOut of sync to heart's design:Never will we blink.And our strife is mystifiedAnd our history pacifiedTowards x-ray epitaphs onA lunar forged shrine.Tonight we shall glowAnd we'll fly high;As souls sing forth in melodyTo harp string's of an angel's sigh,But joy fades in a wink.And we're aliveThere's nothing we can't surviveAnd we're a mysteryTo bandaged eyes living misery.So let's set things right!Let's burn out tonight!Set the world alightWith the unity of our cries,Never to let the flames burn lowNor to allow our nightmaresPermission to fester and grow.So let's set things right!Tonight we shall awakeAnd even if it kills us;The world. Our world.Will be alright.

The Word RoseAnd from the blue and cotton clouds,Out forth I plucked for you -A single word rose.Notebook petals, blooming in the bloodOf scarlet love,Dripping sweet melodies from high aboveShowering us in an embracing flood.It was a single word roseAnd upon it was written your heartIn the form of a hundred rhymesPlaying out your song,Your beautiful songAnd nothing could let it fall apart.And from the blue and cotton clouds,Out forth I plucked for you -A single word rose.Poetic thorns, glaring through the galeOf obsidian disgust,Sneering dark voices of our innocent lustWhispering to us of that word rose pale.It was a single word roseAnd within it was hidden my heartIn the form of a thousand crimesWeeping all my sins,All my blackest sinsBut no one ever saw me fall apart.And from the blue and cotton clouds,Out forth I plucked for you -A single word rose.Word rose, oh where are you?Word rose, ah shining in the blue,You hide my secrets andCover yourself in her heart.Wor
Late nightAll alone in my roomSurrounded by darknessThe clock keeps tickingTime doesn't stopAnd there I layMy mind wanderingWhile I waitFor another day to come
182,400 stars were created as you read this.We are woven loosely togetherwith the fabricsof stardust and big bangs.No more amazing,in the grand scheme of things,than any other life sustainingbeing of our little dust speckcalled Earth.We are infinitely smallin comparison to our sun,which is infinitely smallin comparison to the galaxy,which is infinitely smallin comparison to other galaxies.I'm pretty sure the Milky Way has her lunch moneystolen by the bigger galaxies on the playground.Yet, we humans, feel more important than it all.There are more stars in existencethan there are grains of sandcovering our entire world.And there are, roughly,7,000,500,000,000,000,000,000grains filling the cracks of our planet.Literally,1,000,000 times more insignificant pieces of dirtthan there are people alive at this very moment.We are so concerned about leaving our marksthat we forget about the goodwill of others.And our marks are nothingin the history book of everything anyways.Not even worthy of a dogeared page 7
