Lead to your own broken heart.
Wise up. Love yourself.
Enjoy being you.
Love who you truly are, and
The world will follow.
of clouds and lightningyour lips crashed into mine
with such velocity,
the lasting momentum
could cause thunder to roll on
for an eternity.
your frame cascaded over mine
and enveloped me in fallacy.
the electric air is truly envious
of just how cruel you can be.
the clouds weep.
they, too, are ripped apart,
time and time again. quickly.
always the same, an endless cycle.
it goes on.
sprites and sparks reach down
from the skies, through the clouds,
to caress the earth briefly
and ultimately set it ablaze.
ventingyou are more infectious than the goddamn
human immunodeficiency virus.
you crawl through a person's veins and body
and wrack their minds with manipulation.
you build them up with words of pettily worded adoration,
then slice them apart with a simple "i was lying."
that is all you seem to do. how much of you
is even real, i wonder?
a hundred pounds of fallacy on top of me.
literally. how absolutely crude.
ironic, it seems. you love the crude.
and yet when i attempt to whisper my feelings,
like insects at your tiny morbid feet, they rush by!
noticed, yes, but ignored. you do not even bother
to stomp all over them as they crawl
under your toes, begging for light again.
Melatonin Mondaymorning mist of
melatonin drenched mondays
lies sifting in the wind
i never understood
why they named storms
i'm fine, i'm fine, i'm fine
shock me like an electric volt
i need revival
lather rinse repeat
lather rinse repeat
garbage lining old roads
garbage lining false words
is there a difference?
i taste blood
when i think of you too much
lather rinse repeat
lull me back to sleep
Ice cream, pavement
Melting dreams down the grille
Blue eyes crying, a hug from Mom
But still leaving a sense of loss
No kind words can comfort
Nor ease the pain
StargazingThe stars are watching me tonight
as I am gazing at them too,
and imagine what it feels right
beside the one I love; It's you.
I picture you as one of them,
illuminating from afar.
I'll gaze at you, like precious gem,
and dream that we will be at par.
Little messagesJust when another lonely day, starts to bring me down,
I could be out shopping or just strolling around.
I think of you of course, as I always do.
My dearest love, I´m still missing you.
My sadness, it begins to show,
it is no use, the tears just flow.
Then your spirit seems to talk to me,
cos everywhere there´s a message I see.
Messages on book covers, tell me" I should trust in me".
even on some bath salts, says "don´t worry be happy".
"Keep your chin up", "let your angel always be your guide".
It´s then I know you´re still there for me, always by my side.
The tears still flow, they always will
but now I know you are with me still.
It brings me comfort, it picks me up.
I know for sure, I´ll always have your love.
Poetry by Suzanne karbach November 2014
And Everything Was BlueAnd everything was blue
but nothing was sad
How was I supposed to know
it would (almost) be you?
It was just my mind
I just liked your jeans
and your eyes
And then you walked
through the doors
taller than before
It was just my heart
And I just liked your eyes
and your smile
Then I learned your ways:
one hand on your hip, one knee bent
the face of a tired man
and the veins of a kid
There's a roar behind
your tightrope lips
That can disarm, strengthen
a silence, a shyness
a jazz 'n' blues aorta
the definites before
"...kinda", "...maybe", "...sorta"
It was just my head and heart
not knowing what to do
I just loved
being near you
It started with a flash
of teeth to
a tease, a salute,
then everything was blue
I Failed YouSo many ways
This could have gone
With a fake dawn
Is this our fate?
Is it too late?
To cut the tether
I've failed you
I wish I could atone
For what I put you through
But I’m already alone
Never Let goA few words is all I need
I swore the knife wouldn't make me bleed
But I fear the time has come at last
For me to return to the past
The one place I cannot survive
At least then I wasn't alive
The last place I want to be
All I want is you with me
I want nothing but your smiling face
The one thing I desire is your embrace
Is there any way to let me know
I swear I won’t let you go
I know.I see those moments that we were happy.
Forever encaptured by that oaken framed glass.
Those memories shall forever be locked away in my golden vault.
But I think the issue is that we won't have them anymore.
Our tea scented home would never be crowded with our aroma.
Our burning fireplace won't be relit.
Those chairs outside would never again be used.
We both have a different road.
One that has million of paths, and thousands of passages.
But something is odd.
Even though I know this..
I still hope and crave for a day where I can hold onto you.
I mourn and lament for that one moment where our hands would brush..
But our lives are different.
And I am letting go.
ExistI met you before we could drive
I've liked you longer than you realise
I noticed you before fancy phones
I noticed you before fancy clothes
I saw you when you said you were nothing
I saw you when you were my everything
I was the one to say things will get better
When you were the one feeling under the weather
I was the one saying it'll be alright
When you text me in the dark of the night
I was the one who poured out my heart
My word were wasted so I turned them into art
I met you before we could drink
I loved you more than you think
I noticed you before you had money
I noticed you before you called her 'Honey'
I saw you when she cheated and lied
I saw you through tears than you cried
I was the one saying she's not worth your time
Secretly wishing that you were mine
I was the one with a drunken kiss
Stupidly hoping it could be more than this
Because to me you exist.
The Savage Setting SunI stood upon a growling rock
Amidst a rabid sea,
And looked into the shutting eye.
That glared right back at me.
And as I stared into the eye,
This savage setting sun,
I could not help but shed a tear
To see its life was done.
The glint of red upon the waves
Did slowly seem to slip
Behind the gold horizon like
A fleeting funeral ship.
And in a feral funeral chant
The ocean seemed to roar.
I faintly heard the pipe of Pan
That howled upon the shore.
The wind joined in this symphony.
It howled with dancing Pan
And echoed through the hallowed earth
And through the hearts of man.
The innocence of savagery,
Barbaric songs of yore
Like wild Cuhullin cried
And then were heard no more.
The glowing eye was finally shut;
The ship had finally gone
Far, far away into the deep
And silent great beyond.
The waves then ceased their feral chant,
And Pan his flute’s sweet trill;
The wind then ceased it’s mighty howl
And all the earth was still.
I stood amidst this silence and
I beat my throbb
