Forever Friends

Text

If i could go back in time, back to change the cause
I would save a life, I would save a painful loss

Memories can only last so long
Sitting in your room, listening to our favorite song
I still can’t remember what went wrong

Everyday your death is something i will never forget
Not spending enough time with you is something i most regret

Come back to when we were young
Come back when nothing mattered
Come back to me my friend
I will never forget you, my brother till the end.

My Love.

Text


When I close my eyes your soft smile is what i see
Your soft skin, your kiss will set me free

I know you will always be there
Someone who will listen, someone who will care
My Heart is yours, it’s something we can share

My trust in you keeps growing stronger
Not seeing you everyday keeps getting harder
Without you my dreams keep becoming darker

If anything should happen just keep in mind
To you my hearts always open
Very easy to find
You can have anything you desire, I wont mind
As long as i know your forever mine.

In Essence, My Lifeblood, Spencer Perez

Text

poetry365:

In a quaint dive, clammy with years
of cooking oil coagulated
under squeaky barstools,

I clawed at
dozens of ethereal thoughts

Much in the same way that I scrapped
linty change from my pockets
to pay for this stiff cup of coffee.

“Is this exact?”

I sure hope so.

Toy Store

Text

You know when you walk by

and you see it shine, it just catches your eye.

 

You smile wide and pull on mom’s hand;

mother can we go in just for a second.

 

For 20 minutes you beg and you plead.

You con your way into this toy factory.

 

You walk straight to the back and there it is,

the shiny red truck you’ve been cherishing.

 

You fool around for a little bit,

caught in the moment you forget mother’s not having it.

 

Next thing you know “come on lets go,”

she’s grabbing you by the ear and you say “no!”

 

She drags you kicking and screaming from the store,

you tell her you don’t want to be her son anymore.

 

Tears and all you’re dragged away abhorred,

emotions and all respect destroyed.

 

The next morning you walk down the street

only to see another kid and his mother playing with the green jeep.

 

You stick your face to the window and stare in awe

as he places his hand on your red truck in the store.

 

Your heart splices in two as he moves it across the floor.

You curse your mother for what she’d done before.

 

You see them approach the register and your only thought is “oh no”

the store clerk scans the truck tag and it comes up at $24.

 

Maybe Christmas you think to yourself. Maybe my birthday.

 

But it never came. Twenty-four Christmases and birthdays went and came

And while you’re far too old, you’ll never forget it all the same.

 

You will always want that very truck you saw on that bittersweet day.

I have been trying to get a grip. To pull myself up out of this hole. I should have known better, Because I have been here before.

Like a cancer within my heart, The tumor slowly tears my soul apart. The distance is a catalyst to the end, there’s no light from around the bend.

The lies and the deceit grew out of 16 million feet. Every day I wake up numb, Every day I’m told I’m dumb.

I try and push it out of my mind, But the devil and my dreams had already dined. I wake up in a cold hot sweat With a racing heart that is in debt

as the saying goes
goes the saying
a picture is worth a thousand words

for me,
it is only but a limit
for why can’t i whisper a thousand and one
iloveyou’s?
as the saying goes
goes my saying
this picture is worth infinity

sobeit
for my memory shall never be limited
for limits
never lead
to new words

What do you do when your heart is black and blue,
and all the eyes can do is shed a tear or two? 
Your soul will writhe trying to end its own life, 
and inside…you will feel a war.

Inside you will feel a war and outside you will
wonder what it’s all for.
You look abroad and everyone is at peace and you
wonder why your war won’t cease.

Soon the blue fades and black is what’s left,
and in black blood your heart will be dressed.
The darkness will seep through your network of veins,
and your body will become numb to all the pains.

But deep down inside under all the black,
a drop of red comes under attack.
it will cling on for life and sometimes will win,
but until then your only friend is the party’s gin

Life as we know it.: Swim With Me


 

Days pass without the sight of your smile.

I try to breathe
The air resonates off my breath
Searching for your lungs
Yearning to breathe into you
As the sun sets.

Your love is an ocean.

Strong, vast, endless.
Consume me like the sand and
Wash me away into the…
