I am homeless.

A gust of wind, A lapse of memories, Time has eaten the rest of my days. On the verge of success, I tripped deep within, The flaming temptations, Down to the end. A speeding car, Three coins in my jar, I gave my family, For a few dollars worth, I traded what was precious, for my life of misery. I look around, In search of hope, I seek forgiveness, Two decades too late. A violent blow, A beautiful face, my three descendants, And her pretty smile. A careless turn, A sudden flash, And my life was gone. I remember the final gasp, of my life twenty years back, I lost everything I ever valued, I lost my life, that night. You can call me homeless, As you walk into my house, and notice, that my heart, is long gone in heaven, In the tight hands of my three descendants. You took everything from me, And even if I have everything, I will always be homeless, As beyond a sturdy ceiling, The loss of my family, will always leave me bleeding.

A minute.

3 minutes. The hand turns once more. I rush towards, the closing doors. As it flies, I leap towards eternity, for just a moment, as it is taken away. 2 minutes. I tremble, Make it stop, Just this once. I seek the impossible, In the shortest span, It was simply everything, In 180 turning hands. One minute. There's nothing more, I can do or say, Time has slipped. As I saw it go by. My eyes close, Hoping for a pause, My thoughts scramble, As I ask you, one thing. Give me a minute. Before I say goodbye.

Sleeping beauty.

A devastating remark, A broken heart, A stained path, Prominent pain... I trace back the hours, To a heartfelt surprise, Christmas morning, Within a Joker, And the purple fabric, I remembered, and smiled. I could not lose A friend in my heart, As my heart could not lose, a friend like you. Beyond our differences, too nice, too worried, I hurried... to tell you, That deep within, I was sorry, I let you go by, Because the sleeping beauty, inside me, Would never die.

Can I see?

The dark pavement, A speeding car, A gust of wind, and a motorcycle afar. Everything surrounds me, and yet no one knows, what goes on, inside me. Two clashing fortunes, A shining diamond, A golden ring, Within the silent road. Dark eyes in the distance, Of a glowing dead end, Of an undecided glimpse, Two rocky paths, And a broken bicycle. Let us not choose our destiny, If destiny's ring was chosen, And the golden future, undecided. Stop me, just this once, and guide me through. Just tell me, which road goes further, Because from where I stand, I can see no further. Blind as I may be, Help me as the chains turn, and I walk into, What I cannot see. But set me free, Into unknown territory, Because blind as I may be, I can see.

Together at last.

A sharpened dagger, A fresh drop, Don't cry, Don't die. It splatters, Endless particles, It goes beyond, What you can see. A silent wave, Of true emotions, A sudden hit, you did not see. The fresh drop, stains your heart, You tremble, and say goodbye. Let me explain, What I can not say, And tell you, What you can not hear. I could not bear See you tear, The stained rose, And so I brought it, to a close. I grabbed both sides, and held them tight, As they split apart, With strength and might, And as I lay there, I noticed that my two worlds, would once again, unite.

Meaningless Meaning

Thirteen golden charms, Within a simple drawer The black and white, Life in a river's might. Find the meaning, Which was always there, Question the simple, And make it disappear. Even the truest meaning, Was left to question, Where had reason gone, In a world, of pure imagination. Who would we be, Without the colors Of society's creativity, What would we do? Let me reason, That meaning exists, That for once, Everything is explained. Beyond the textbook, And accepted definition, Close your eyes, Go beyond those lies. And imagine more, Than what reality cries, Because the tears of truth, Are colorless fools, Whose life goes dry, As we smile, At a blank canvas, Giving life, To the meaningless, the meaningless meaning... matadorqk

Two to tango.

I don't know what to do, The stress builds up, And as time passes, My eyes turn blue. A silent tear, hits the ground, I cannot hear you, You are no where to be found. Where has hope gone? I looked beneath my bed, Within my sheets, And inside me. And there it was, where it had always been. Within my heart, was my hope. I almost lost it, But sanity retained, With one lesson, Which I stared at, in disdain. How could I have missed, The simplest thing, That in a glimpse, Took winter into spring. Never lose the hope, Which you always have, Because no matter the issue, A beach, or eighteen candles, There is one truth, for you to handle. You are who you are on your own. And no matter the sunlight, or number of friends, it takes two to tango, but only one, to truly be great. matadorqk

I lied.

The meaning lies, in a lie. Somewhere within, the grey truth, lies a black lie, who says, he cannot lie. Why would anyone, lie about a lie, as they lie again, to protect their lie. Oh please, Do not lie, as I lie here, because a lie, will make me die where I lie. I cannot take anymore lies. As I say the word lie, fifteen times. I lied. matadorqk

A million pieces

Memories go by, A chasing car, flies past me. I can't forget. Deep within, My dusty cells, Lies a memory, Of the wrong choice. A beautiful past, Is stored in frames, Of what used to be, And no longer is. How could it happen, Slipped from your hands, The vase cracks, And your left with a million pieces. I don't know what to do, As I walk in the bleeding spikes, I look back at what used to be, All I have is a memory. The memory of you, has fallen to a million pieces, And yet I still look back, With one thing in mind. No matter the pieces, Which shatter within, My efforts herein, Never ceases. I will pick up a million pieces.

Let me forget

Let me forget Everything around me, The work, the stress, My life, a mess. Explode, not just yet. Fire the colors, Order some more, Remember the past, Great memories come back, Explode, The time is right. matadorqk

An inspirational rhyme.

It is easy to be absent, To simply not care, And refuse to even glimpse, or stare. It is easy to turn to the wind, Whose invisible breeze, cruises through life, Like problems were not there. But it is those who care, those who take the rocky path, those who go against the wind, It is those, who matter. Let us not lie here, and watch humanity die here, Let's throw in our grain of rice, So our future isn't a mere, roll of dice. Do it for the future, Or just because, But step in this sailing ship, With your grain of rice. Convince all you can, And only the stubborn minds stay behind, In a world, which no longer can. Oh man, what a short life-span. Do something. matadorqk

A poem's poem

As they come together, I tremble, the words unite, Perfection rises. From nothing at all, A small plant sprouts, And with time, a beautiful rose. It is hard to explain, The relationship of words, Their eternal love, Beyond that of humanity. A different feeling, A different flower, In each of us, Something blooms. Beyond the pumping apple, And the devouring basket, A feeling arises, Something never felt before. And just like that, The blooming flower, Spreads beyond words, And the eternal love, From a poem's poem, Has ended. matadorqk

What to do...

Against all odds, I desire something, Which within me, I do not desire. I want what is wrong, To once and for all, break the boundaries, And make that mistake. A simple mistake, Once in my life, I need the experience, To learn the lesson. I played with fire, And got burnt. I want to do this, To learn why not. A simple request, To do what is wrong, To know for myself, Once and for all. Set me free, Spread my wings, Let me fly in the wild, And do what as a child, You told me was wrong. Because you have told me, One too many times, Spurred my curiosity Beyond the enemies line, That for once, I just want to fly away. And learn for myself. Just let me. Or stop me. matadorqk

I shall wait.

Loved by all, Her eyes were mine, Just for that instant, I committed a crime. I had perfection, and let it go, I set beauty free, And it was gone. My biggest mistake, Money could not pay, I was the richest man, But no feast Could bring us back, To that day. The day where I saw, What the heavens made, The day where I fell in love, and let it fade. I went through darkness, To make money for love, But I could not pay, The years I did not give you, my love. My love, I am here, In a swimming pool, In a big mansion, Across the lake. I await the sound, of a little fool, I await the sound, of dropping coins, I await the sound, of you, my love. The brightness of a green light, fades away. In a night where Nick, stared my way. I was nimble to see A bright green light, But blinded at the surrounding darkness. In darkness, I had money, In darkness, I saw you shine, And neither, Gave me you. One mistake, extinguished our fire. One chance, and I chose, What I did not desire. Blame it on
