Literature
Lost
"Reach for the stars"
Or so they say
But they forgot to mention something
The stars are very far apart
So chances are you'll be lost in the void

Literature
Drinking buddy
Drink a whole bottle
And you'll be drunk
And lonely
Only harming yourself
Share it with someone
And you'll both be tipsy
And have a fun time
Not harming yourself as much

Literature
Stormy weather, calm mind
Gray cloudy skies
Pouring rain and cold wind
Thunder in the distance
A stormy night
Like many others
As charming as they get
As I walk all alone
Along these streets
Under these dull orange streetlights
With no clear destination
(I have nowhere to go anyway)
Only enjoying the peace and quiet
This weather brings to my troubled mind

Walls
The more you try to take down my walls
And reach to me
The harder I work to keep them up

Literature
Scratches
It came to a point
Where small wounds
(accidental ones, of course)
Don't bother me anymore
The pain reminds me I'm alive

Sorry that I dissapoint you
Again and again
Simply by being me

Literature
City streets
All these people
Walking places
Not noticing each other
Not noticing their surrundings
The places they know so well
Stuck in their routines
Living their daily lives
Like machines
As another day goes on
In this repetitive life

Counting seconds
Time never stops
Or so they say
But it seems to shift gears
Way too often

Literature
Past love
I lied to you
Made glass promises
That I never kept
Tricked you
For my own reasons
Selfish reasons
It's been so long
Yet I can't forget
I still find myself
Thinking about you
Wondering how you feel
Wishing you're happy
:iconGhostOfTheEmptyGrave:GhostOfTheEmptyGrave
:iconghostoftheemptygrave:GhostOfTheEmptyGrave 8 12
Literature
See or ignore
I've been hurt
I've been damaged
I don't need more pain
Nor sorrows
If your intentions
Are to hurt me further
To add more scars
To my impressive collection
You should...
Look past me as a whole
Look past my existence
Ignore me...
If your intentions
Are to help me heal
To look past the scars you see
And make me forget them
You should...
Talk to me
Get to know me
Smile...
And I'll do the exact same thing for you...

Free time
Even when I have free time
I'm a slave of the schedules
:iconGhostOfTheEmptyGrave:GhostOfTheEmptyGrave
:iconghostoftheemptygrave:GhostOfTheEmptyGrave 10 4
Literature
Day after day...
Ironic humor
Lots of sarcasm
Mask my sorrows
Day after day
It's both funny
And kinda sad
Coping with all of it
Day after day

Distrust
Be friends with demons
Be afraid of angels

One thought
A few words written down
A poem

forest of stars
i.
you came to me and asked, with tears in your eyes, "what do i do when i am small but my heart is not?"
and if i could, i would've passed through galaxies to hold you as i thought.
ii.
i told you about soul mates and how you can never have just one.
i told you that you have time because you're young.
i told you about the statistical probability of you never finding love
(and in case you're wondering, the answer's still none.)
iii.
i know the world is big and it feels ever so far,
but who needs the earth when you've got the stars?
when i look at you, i see clear blue skies,
and millions of questions burn in your eyes.
i will answer as many of them as i can.
please know that i will never let go of your hand.
iv.
i would do anything for you.

Some Other Horizon
I always feel like I’m riding the
Edge of the storm;
Lost on some cloudless journey
And hit by an embittered wind
Howling through my soul to set
A violent chill in my bones …
Too bad the sun won’t come out today
I need its warmth but it clearly
Doesn’t need me
And has gone to rise on
Some other horizon
Whilst setting on mine

Literature
Love At First Sight
I never really believed in love at first sight
Although sometimes I wondered if maybe I might
Then you walked through the door - straight to my heart
And I no longer questioned but knew from the start
There was something about you - a look in your eyes
I still can't express it but you wore no disguise
Perhaps your soul met my soul through deep mists of time
And now all that I'm sure of is I must make you mine

Cruising Altitude
I'm spending another graceless night
flying up higher, above my own
takeoffs and landings,
the accent beats in my ears
hurting just enough
to remember you
And I can still see the
Christmas lights lining your
shutters,
And your tail lights fleeing from me
as I predict the teary way
this month will end
We are but lakes of city lights
in a vast ocean of dark trees,
rivers of interstates,
hopping from pond to pond
to where we can't
see any stars
And you, my friend
are the liquid above the dregs
that has already run out
And I can't
drain more from this
broken cup anymore
I love you, I miss you
I'll never see you again,
broken records we can't set straight
I've never had a fear of heights
but I'm thinking this
is stage fright

Literature
Murder is not in your best interest
If you shot me I'd finally be the bleeding heart
you'd been hoping for.
My sympathy could stain your clothes
and I'd love you the way you'd always wished.
I could cry and tell you I love you and die
before my lies started your world on fire.
We could melt into the earth, sand and stone
and find pleasure in nature's beauty.
You could look at me with adoration and affection
and I could mimic your emotions with unwavering parallel.
My fingertips could get lost in your hair
and my lips could get lost on your soul.
We could become one beneath the moonlight
and make love like never before.
But your wish is not my command
and my blood staining your hands
would only be a felony,
not beauty, in the eyes of the law.
Your life would be all too empty and you'd resent me for making you a single mother much too young.
So we will sit in this studio and
speak sweet nothings into silk bedsheets
pretending to be soulmates
instead of roommates
with broken hearts.

mute
My heart's not as vacant as I say it is.
I avoid the touch of the sun because even that feels too heavy on my skin these days.
I blame these sleepless nights on insomnia, but I still can't be honest with myself.
It was when I noticed you occupied my thoughts that dread occupied my being.
And my heart's not as vacant as I say it is, but if I say it enough....
I told him I just didn't feel like anything anymore,
And he thought that meant I wanted him to fix me.
I don't tell him much anymore.
I'm picking at my words like they're last night's left-overs.
My stomach wants to throw out all its contents, but my guilty conscience won't let it.
And these days it's getting harder to look at myself.
Living quietly, I didn't know I could be swallowed by the shadows like this.
And these days it's getting harder to look like myself.
Silence is not the sanctuary I thought it to be;
Staring at stars while I'm stranded in the static.
It's not as romantic as it sounds.
My hands are sore like my throat i

Stay
I feel your beautiful trust beating in my palms,
I won’t let you down again,
not this time and not ever,
won’t be someone else folding in upon myself,
I won’t turn cold with a blink,
I won’t shrivel and shrink,
won’t do any of those things you’ve come to expect of me,
gonna just be,
open to the failure and the victory,
come what may,
gonna just chill here,
gonna stay anyway.

Wonderful. Suicide is a rather common subject among us poets but you managed to write about it in an original and fresh way. The first ...

Just an invisible man, writing his thoughts and fighting a battle in vain aganist life itself. Lost friends, broken hearts, bullying, a (relatively) messed up family life and overall anti-social tendencies led me to that. And love is a strange concept to me... At least DeviantArt is both an escape and a way to connect to others. Where would I be without it?...

Anyway, enjoy my poems, pictures and all the other stuff. I must warn you, most of my poetry tends to be quite dark and sometimes depressing. I do some photography too.

One more thing: there's no need to thank me for every fave, llama or whatever, OK?

Oh, and I don't mind poetry requests. For free. Come on, inspire me :)

"Reach for the stars"

And have a fun time
Not harming yourself as much

I just cut off all ties I had with a good friend of mine on impulse. Really, all ties. Deleted, just like that. Without even waiting for a reaction. Why? Because I couldn't take it anymore. That relationship was but a chore without any pleasure. And I don't even feel bad about that. I realized I don't care for that person anymore. A person not long ago I held dear. Someone very close and special to me, someone I genuinely cared about with all my heart and soul.
Am I a bad person? Am I a cold heartless mess? What have I done and why do I care so little about it?

Like the title says, I'm a disgrace...

I did read that about your family and troubles and I can really relate. Dreaming, writing and arting is, what kept and keeps me alive through all this.
Just wanted to say "Hi" and tell you you're not alone, I guess.

Looks like we're not as alone as we sometimes think. And art in general is a pretty great way to express ourselves and let out what's in our minds. And 'hi' to you as well.
