Angels

Immortals

The true horcrux
The real One Ring
That lets us survive
Beyond the body's death;

The true talisman
The real fortification
That lets us endure
All anguish and torment;

The true haven
The real home
That lets us embrace
The beauty we have in life

Is placing a piece of yourself
In another's heart,
There to live always
And to be cherished.

 

Hold Me

I just

Want
Someone
Who will
Stay with me
And tell me
It's going
To be
Okay

  Even though
  It never will be.

 

 

Vulnerable

Accepting
The love
Of a human
Into your heart
Is like
Willingly
Accepting
An Achilles heel:

  A place
  Is born
  Within your soul
  Where a single
  Arrow
  May deal
  A mortal blow.

 

 

しんせつ (Shinsetu)

 

A feathery cloak
Makes a whisper of the world
Float through the silence

 

 

A Question That Will Never Be Asked


Because
You are
Kindness
And
Darkness.

That's why.

 

 

Shards

We
Are pieces
Of the same
Soul
  Shat

         tered
                   And
                          Sc a t

Life

As I peer
Into the future
And watch
The last of these moments,
  The last of these
  Inhalations
  That weave
  The fabric
    Of each sensation,
Tumble from my fingertips...

  I can predict
  The collapse
  Of my heart
    When I feel
    Just how much
    I will miss you.

 

 

When Have I Done Right?

 

Everyone

Who walks

Within

A metre of you

Should walk

Away

Better

 

 

Why Indeed

 

I wish

I could

Have turned

Off

The parts

Of my brain

That make me

Cynical

And

Critical

And

Just

Stayed

With

You.

 

What is wrong with me?

 

 

North Star

My soul
Is everywhere.

But if
You want me
To point you
To its centre
You have to promise
To treat it
Gently.

 

 

Insecurity Is Not A Sin

If we were all
Made of iron
Where would our hands
Find the soft places
To hold onto the ones we love?

 

 

Drink

If 
You look
With welcoming
Eyes,

Everyone
        Is
          Beautiful.

Faith in Others

Trust
That there
Is someone
In the world
Who can do
The things
You cannot

And that,
Like you,
That person
Knows
Precisely
When
And how
They need
To be
Done.

It is not all on your shoulders.

It never was.

 

 

Keep me warm

When you've found your heart
There is no cause to leave your home
No joy to be found outside your bed
No warmth outside of her arms

And to be away
Is to have all of that peace
Lost
Like a paper in the wind.

 

 

Passing

Goodbye, my dear one.

We were lucky
To have known you.

But every human
Eventually
Disappears.

Every human
Eventually
Disappears.

Every human
    Eventually disappears.

 

 

Blessed 

 

A single rain-drop

On your up-turned lips

Is exactly like

A kiss from God.

 

 

Rise 

 

Man is born

Not to gaze

Into the ground

But to look up

And paint

His irises

With the majesty

Of the sky.

 

 

A Sad Smile

When you and I
Can each get over
Our need
For insecurities
Anxieties
Fears
Insistences
Barbed defenses
And preconceptions
We
Will
Be
Perfect
For one
Another.

 

 

出張 (Shucchō)


          You
     Are             the
 Crumbled       edges
Of a                    hole
 Where            warmth
  Is             cradled
    When  you 
          Are 
            Near.

 

 

Leibniz

Each
Bite
Is

  Like
A
Rush
Of
Childhood
Skipping
Across
My
Singing
Sensation
Of

  Taste.

 

 

I Understand

We are
Screaming
The same
Message
At one
Another.

It pours
Out of us
Because
Our veins cannot
Contain it.

And the world
Calls it
Entertainment.

But we
Are all
So self-absorbed
That we don't think
To reach out
And gratify
That cry
With a touch.

Reach out.

We are all here.

 

Kurt.
Trent.
Tori.

I hear you.

Can you
Hear me?
