Exit.My mother never knew;never knew about howI’d spend those first nights,in strangers' hands that heldtoo tight. Never knew about howbad habits are heirloomstoo, and that the paintingsfrom her room couldn’t coverstained truths.My mother didn’t knowthat nothing would startanew, and that yeah,there’d be good art,but she could never seeit through.My mother never knew thatthis story doesn’t end; that"Exit stage right and followthe Light" isn’t a conclusion,
Intermission.Our time was outof joint those nights,when my sunset wasablaze and yours wasgone; replacedby a moon that seemedtoo big for sucha small world.I thought it was my placeto set fate right–shout spite to saveyou from drowning;but we both knoweveryone diesat the end, andthe finale was alwayswhat mattered mostfor you.We exchanged lifestories and played(games songs the fool)off each other, foilingdark parts; making themshine.You came tome as a tragicfigure; Byronichero in the wrongera. My Romantic character-istics were underdeveloped,so you set to work;crafted opportunities for meto try and fall freely.But I always bracedmyself for the landing;the scene never wentas planned.
Party of one.Lit candlesin a dark kitchen;marking long years past.
Broken mirrorsI’m tired of beingbroken, he saidto the cracked mirror
Envy.With confident strides we circlelike carrion birds flyingin the heat of day.We enclose and defeatyour tired and weakinner self that wehate;An act of envy.
June 18.Fear makes the thrillrun hotter, but fallinginto boiling water wasnever the intention.So shed apprehension;step on that tightrope,and shut those pretty eyes(you always do).Just hope that whenyou stumble, someone stillwants to catch you.
Silver tongueYour words are notsterling, they are stabbing,stinging syllablesthat slice throughstitches, leaving woundsexposed.
May 29.Rain tears foggy air;whipping faces,soaking you down.I hide in dryness,leaving you to your owndevices, hopingyour sins don't washaway.Because, like a maskthat rips fleshwhen removed,the ill you dois all you are,and I knowthat if your wrongsflood drainswith the downpour,you'llfalltoo.
Sting.I tried to pullthe weeds from my hearttoday, but the thistles onlycut my hands; I lost myselfin the sting. Perhaps to bleedis all we can hope for;perhaps we may only hurtourselves.
One for SorrowOne magpie perched alone on a grey branch,Isolated, set upon a falling oak,Gazing upon a cluster of liliesAnd towering above your cold marble stone.The autumn winds blow the brown leaves from you,Your grave is covered in dead leaves,Your resting place is surrounded by death.The white blossoms slowly begin to fade.The pure snow falls softly from the heavens.The old oak weakens, the magpie still remains.The lilies lose their grey petals.The final leaf falls from the great oak, the wind ceases.You left the world a fragile tree, once a great oak.You felt your final gust of wind, you finally fall.Your great grey branch falls onto the pure snow.The magpie departs, leaving nothing.Nothing but your stone.
GluttonyI walked in my room dripping in goldA ruby carpet led me in;In my hands, the ultimate treasure I hold.Its pleasure, someone told,in no measure can it be sold.But I just bought it. Now I sit on my throneTasting beads of emerald,drinking diamonds- Still,sparkling and cold.Embedded with crystals, my tongue I fold;As if feeding divine honor into my soul.They’re all decorated on a platinum plate,must be fateBecause unlike rich men,I die with the riches inside of me.

The PlaylistA group of us lying on the floorin a too-small apartmentthat can’t hold a fraction of our disorderssyndromes and symptomstucked under the kitchen sinkand in between self help booksand in the pages of love poetryonly half meant.A group of us lying on the floorwishing we could see the stars.but thats not how the architecturehas been set up for uswe have to live our lives blinkeredfrom the celestialbut at least we have each other.A group of us lying on the floorletting music replace our immune systemsnot caring if a misspent lyric saves us,not caring if a dropped note kills uswe don’t care about anything but the floor,these walls, these chains,that sound so familiar in an acoustic’s voice.A group of us lying on the floorcaring about nothing but the ceilingthats blocking out the light.

InvisibleWhen I was 14 years old,it was the day I thought of suicide.Slicing my legs and my arms,wanting this pain to end.My heart was always broken,the moment you laid your hands on me.I wish I just given up in life,but I kept pushing through.When I was young,I thought i was a foolish girl.Thinking there was love in life,just to find heartaches and pain.My smile was always fake,maybe once in awhile I wouldn't show it.But the day I felt pain,I lost my smile for good.I felt like dying numerous of times,but never ended it fully.Once in awhile I felt free,but my heart ripped to pieces.Maybe when my life is gone,I will be noticed in the afterlife.But until that day comes,I will always be invisible to this world.

Nothing to WriteI have nothing to write today.I sat down with a thought and a pen,Flourishing with the ideaThat few things are as definiteAs death, taxes, and the loss of symmetry in freshly tweezed eyebrows.But soon, the words ceased with a skid,And the punchlines came flat.Here I am,Sitting before the brisk view of the red Arizona mountainsWith the sun in my hair and the sky in my smile,Still completely dumbfounded and void of inspiration.Perhaps I'll type a soliloquyOn the philosophy of a cactus,And on how the sweetest fruitsAlways seem to grow on sharp, dry, government-protected plant-life.Maybe a sketch will form in my brainOf a sonnet on the juxtapositionBetween the hummingbird's humAnd the highway's roar.The sidewalk burns of scorching summer,And the heavy heat deflates a sigh that sings my frustrations.There is no poem to be seen and no prose in the winds.There is absolutely nothing to write today.
HalfwayYou stood me up here the very first time you saidyou loved me;and I have been waiting so longthey've crowned me queen just for staying - everybody elsewas just passing through.
please don't leave without them this timeWaitdon't you wantall these littlepieces of you?I've beenkeeping them safein my heart.
From Dante's DoorstepWhat cynical gnostics still rot in this place,A deadened distemper; dysfunctional chaste.Enfeebled ideals were deft to portray,What a vile and detestable role they did play.They ramped up their vices, consulted in spite,By demons possessed with a rapturous bite.Asmodeus, it seems, was well in his season;As Nietzsche confound to quell with this demon.A stark reminder of the war at home.As is mine to relive, I am left to drone;The blood in my throat, from the debt of a spinster.Apple's for Eve on the playground of this minster.And still I parlay, the need to make quarrel,As the leaves left me poisoned; toxic to this laurel.I still cry when I smell it, the fire of hatred.Left to ponder their lies, was nothing left sacred?Insane I may be, torn and dejected.I thought in her arms I would be protected.But fate loathes the calloused, perverse and diseased.As it saw to keep me in exile, and on my knees.
The Worst Case of Plague I've Ever SeenOf illness and its description, I tend to be quite vagueI’m quite a dunce, but just for once, I knew I had the plague!Two boils broke out last Saturday, when preparing for a date,They blackened quickly, I felt sickly, and in a right old state.I phoned my date – this hunky man – and said I might not make it,Gave boils a squeeze, fell to my knees, the pain I couldn’t take it!So, I went on my computer, googling symptom list for ages,My boils were soggy, mind quite foggy and I was probably contagious.The information that I found then shocked me to the core,Pronounced no cure, would not endure, then soon fall to the floor.I called my trusty Doc at once, urged him to come post haste.He said ‘Don’t worry, I will hurry, there is no time to waste.’Well, good old Doc, give him his due, he rushed round to my bed,Looked at me, quite puzzledly and said ‘You should be dead.This is quite the worst case of bubonic plague I’ve seen,Yo

The End.When the end is imminent, and you’ve lost the last of your hope, will you utter my name?Will we hear the sound within your paved, damp lips, skateboarding across your palate?Will you dare to remember our story, my sweet, or will you annihilate it’s memory without a thought?––The murder, slow and macabre, starting from the present, torturing itself into the past, dripping drops of deceit.How does my name taste in your mouth?Bitter, and rancid?Dulcet, and guilty?, perhaps a little like regret.You made sure our love ended in tragedy, Shakespeare would’ve bowed down.My life is at it’s bitter end, and I write you my final words.You may have done it for a reason, this i’ll never, truly know.Your treachery hurt more than the knife’s jagged edges, to be sure.You left me to die, without so much as a goodbye.I guess love isn’t in the air tonight.It took flight, with this light…I…© Rocio B
