Drink coffee.
Look at the blue curtain,
Notice the fan,
Cough.
Quickly scratch head again.
Belly rises and fall,
Notice.
Tears entering behind eye lids,
Fight to keep them there,
And why?
Drink coffee.
Grab pen,
Look at the blooming orchid across the room,
Think about paper,
Be annoyed by that thought,
Notice you’ve been writing.
Think about the people who didn’t give you the respect you deserved,
Which is different from being right,
Which is different from making other wrong.
Think about the people who are interested in your life.
Their questions,
Their gaze,
Their hand on the small of your back.
Think and wonder if wherever you go you are invisible.
Play at being visible,
Play at taking up space,
Play at whatever life hands you.
Fear.
Fear of cancer.
All the dying bodies.
1 degree of separation.
Scared.
Mad at humans.
Mad at corporations,
Mad at the spider that couldn’t climb out of the bathtub and died.
How do we choose to bring new humans into a world,
Which we know is disappearing.
Apologize.
Apologize again.
And then again.
I don’t mean hug a tree.
Fear.
Gripping.
Not enough time.
Missing a deadline.
Catching up to the fire.
Sad now.
Flickering.
Trying to get through it.
Drink coffee.
The corner of the room waits.
Do this for weeks.
Quotes of wisdom on every page.
Don’t flip.
Bathroom break.
Very important.
Stomach churning.
Take everything personally.
Dishwasher hum,
Civilization,
Summer forever falls,
Dying.
That will be me too,
Someday,
Tomorrow,
Now.
Chest to belly,
The ringing of the bells,
All this longing,
The empty breakfast plate,
The scent of a peach,
Sweet and cold,
Not at all complete or perfect,
But here,
Now,
Taking a full sip.

my day in jail and story to tell [17 Sep 2008|05:07pm]

kismekiki17

How did I get here
It hurts me to tell
Covered in tears
And in a jail cell
My anger went wild
Aggression took over
I acted like a drunk
But was totally sober
My mother’s tears grew
As they cuffed my hands tight
Knowing I’d be locked up
In jail for the night
Too strong to give in
To my immature ways
She said no to bail
Go to court the next day
Having the worse
Thoughts in my mind
Hearing the cop say
You’re in for a long time
I slept in my cell
On a bench three feet long
I lied there restless
With the thought of all I did wrong
Then my sleep aids kicked in
And I fell into slumber
Gave into the fear
Of the roof I slept under
Then the next day I awoke
To do things I rather withhold
Then they brought me somewhere nicer
But much more cold
I got a new cell and an actual bed
Got put on suicide watch
What’s the point I feel dead
I fell asleep quickly
But awoke just as fast
“Ms get all ready”
It’s court at last
I get cuffed and shackled
And locked in a room
With a girl on heroin
Pleading NOT GUILTY too
So I entered the court and gave out my plea
Said I’m not guilty
And got released
So just one day of jail
That will stick in my head
I hope you now can take in
These things I have said

whistling sexy (july 2, 2008) [03 Jul 2008|09:33am]

mickeylimon

so whistling is sexy
dire ocean, dire sea
calmly careening
island by island
beach by beach
so whistling is sexy ...
when you do

so words unspoken are true
like the wind, like the sand
underneath our almost bound feet
struggling for thoughts
that the body give away
so easily, so enchantingly
words almost uttered
but then again they were never heard
yet so true, its so true

so the tree, so the rock
he climbed, he trudged
funny, clumsily, and uncanny
like me lying half naked
and you whistling sexy ...
at me
under the scorching march sun
friends, rocks and the boat men
all gone, all done
just you and i
left behind ...

Something’s not right

When a girl like her

Loses faith

In her own beauty

And it becomes a blur

She hears you’re too fat

At one hundred and ten

Voices say drop the food

It’s a killer best friend

Oh the pain she must feel

When she follows society

She loses the weight

But the world’s still not happy

They send out the message

To girls like her

And like you

That you’re way too big

If you wear a size two

Now something’s not right

When every girl has to fight

The scale and the mirror

Every damn night

So how does this effect

Those poor girls in a ten

No way they are fat

they're still beautiful and thin

The world’s message kills

Girls are destroying their health

To be what society says

Is they’re perfect self

I see you can taste

The fear not visible on my face

You love to make me frightened

With my heart at a dangerous pace

I can feel you staring through me

Trying to detect my weakness

Somehow you can grab

A hold of my heart

Taking it every time I need it

I don’t see how you know me so well

When you barely stayed around

I always thought when I’d open up

You wouldn’t hear a sound

Maybe as I spilled my heart

And you were ignoring all my words

You just examined things that tear me apart

That’s why to you my whole past’s been a blur

I just seemed to assume

That when guys would used you

It was for physical enjoyment for them

I never though it could be my father

Pointing at my flaws to avoid all his sins

I never sleep anymore

You girls who don’t need pills

Are lucky whores

I cannot stand my restlessness

This insomnia is making me pissed

Now I’m full of rage and energy

So I need to go so I can sleep

I think I’m about to lose my mind

I’m freaking out

As I look at the time

If only one day I could breathe

Maybe I’d get back the good in me

make me happy [30 Mar 2008|09:59pm]

kismekiki17

Make me happy

Make me whole

Someone please

Just save my soul

Try not to pause

Try not to think

I want to be happy

But I’ve grown too weak

I cannot love

And I cannot feel

I’m lost in fantasy

Oblivious to what's real

I need some freedom

Can you cheer me on?

Do you know if it's right?

You say that I’m wrong

I know I’m living

This life in vein

Sinning to take

My mind off my pain

“Social Rules or What make who” [28 Jan 2008|05:46am]

kismekiki17
 Without trends

They don’t care who you are

With popular friends

You’re a movie star

Some girls are geeks until they make cheer

They once were called freaks

But she’s sexy this year

Reading’s for nerds

Cheerleaders are stuck up

You’re a total whore

If you’re past a C-cup

Jocks are boneheads

Guys whose best friends are girls

Are always homos

If you cut your wrist

You’re such an emo

If girls wear mini skirts

She wants some action

People only have crazy hair

Just want a reaction

Did you know pretty girls

Have never have problems

Every good-looking guy

Has a wallet full of condoms

What’s wrong with society

Are they trying to fit in

By labeling people

Making up there sins

Why can’t in but

Not be labeled

There are a lot of cool people

That doesn’t sit at the popular table

What started all this

Will it ever end

By judging people by stereotypes

What kind of message do you think that sends

Think about it

When putting everyone in these groups

Have you ever thought of

What people say about you

Now look at me [23 Jan 2008|04:05am]

kismekiki17

 

I am still thinking of you

I just can’t stop

I love that you say you love me

I hate that you don’t mean it

I want you to mean it so bad

I need you to come around soon

I smell your cologne and nearly go crazy

I say hate you

I don’t though and that’s what I hate

I lost all common sense when I met you

I broke all of my rules and morals to keep you around

I feel like an idiot for still loving you

I learned that it’s all a game to you

I dream you will realize you’ve been ridiculous

I think that is far from ever happening

I remember when I could hear your name and not fall apart

I can almost taste your rage

I have hidden feeling on how things ended

I live off all you’re lies, they were so addictive

I forget how beautiful they were at times

I never thought I’d become this person living this life you led me to

I once thought you finally understood and would come back and stay

But now

You are using the same lies on new victems

You hear crying and it pleases you

You love that say I hate you

You hate that I really love you

You want me to mean it

You need me to move on so you can live guilt free

You smell my fear and your adrenaline rises

You say you never loved me

You don’t mean it though and you don’t know how to accept that

You lost every bit of self-respect when you used a death for excuses to get out of inconveniences

You learned nothing obviously

You dream that I’ll forget how knifing you were

You think it’s actually possible, think again

You remember when we could talk without leaving emotional injuries

You can almost feel your soul about to burst

You have lost sight with reality

You live with a smile knowing I’m still miserable

You forgot to grow a heart before attempting an apology

You never thought it would get so out of hand

You once were my everything

You’re now nothing

So hard to admit [22 Jan 2008|10:20pm]

The complete disgust

As I see her fall apart

She’s a total mess

And it’s all her fault

With her desperate smile

And self-conscious mind

And the stuff she carries with her

That she should’ve left behind

That pathetic look

When she stare at his notes

And the lies her heart believe

Yes, all the things he wrote

Though this face I am making

Is worse than all those things

Since I know that I’m faking

This poor girl isn’t me

Who Is Whole, Really? [12 Nov 2007|06:33pm]

sabneraznik
[ mood | worried for a friend ]

New poem (finally!):


"All This Time"

That you've been looking out for us:
You need someone to look out for you.

Yet you don't waver-
You never waver.

I want to carve your father's name for you
Into something unforgettable,
To plant your love for him in
The soil of faith to go on growing
Long after he is gone.
Your strength- both fragile and unbreakable-
Is your mother's gift to you.
I am Afterthought on the map of you,
(Am I an afterthought?)
But with you still.

Whether it means much
Or whether it means little:
I love you.

We are never alone.

(In)Complete Compilation (Of A Life) [14 Sep 2007|07:01pm]

[ mood | headache ]

"(In)Complete Compilation (Of A Life)"

I am in so much pain-
Please, be patient,
Let the ache
Remain
(Or restate).

What
(The way through)
Was
The way into-
The climber:
An (in)complete compilation
(Of a life).

I want chocolate.
There is no chocolate.
There is just (one) more for me-
(Unknowing)
When to cease,
When to believe,
When to retreat and
Close(t).

I want the light out.
But not enough to move,
To flip the switch.
Your picture in my
Locket:
(Confusion).

I know I said
(But please) understand that
This is merely physical
And barely
Alive
(Love).

If it would help
I would change my name (to Flawed),
Make contrition a way of life.
There is only
God
(Now).

Did I misgive my hope?
The more we hurt the less we cry:
You promised me
(Nothing).
You promised me
(No)
Thing.

I enjoy feedback, but take into consideration that this poem was written for no one but me,

'Fish bones'

I call him Walter
But he doesn't know my name
I look at his face in black and white
But he'll never see me.

Ive seen many tears shed over Walter
But none of them have been mine.
Ive felt and held his old belongings,
but he'll never be real to me.

I'm sorry you were to late,
when you drove to see him die.
I'm sorry I call him Walter,
Instead of Grandfather.


'Hollow Children'

Just shy away from us
Wander into hidden woods
Where everyone pretends-
Not to know what you're up to.

There's no answers at the bottom of that tiny ziploc bag
But you've known that all along
Theres no changing where you've been
And there's no changing what I've seen you do.

So just shy away
And come back with sniffles
And fast paced conversations
And just see me pretend
Not to care about what you're up to.

So many false emotions
Trailing away into false love
As fake as the smiles plastered on your faces

The only thing you have in common with these people
Is the powder under your nose
And the size of your pupils
The only thing you have in common with these people
Is that you're all wasting away
Into skeleton men
With broken bones

(this is not quite finished)


We were once forest
And free
Full of strength
Growing rapidly

We were once winter
Chattering teeth
Biting cold
Speeding heartbeat

We were once summer
Blinding heat
Light and dreary
Sickly sweet

We were once earth
Falling apart
Sight for sore eyes
And empty hearts

We were never true
To who we were
Eyes blinded us
Without a cure

One-Off Throw-away: "Locket" [01 Sep 2007|12:17am]

[ mood | confused ]

Which on further reading is much more layered than it suggests, so maybe not so throw-away?

"Locket"

I want chocolate.
There is no chocolate.
How could I possibly be
Hungry?
That is one more for me,
Unknowing.
I want the light out.
But not enough to move,
To flip the switch.

Locket:
Confusion.
